Logo Mojo 2

I had been into the web log for years now and I always find this passion very interesting and informative. Developing one's personal site is not easy. More time, creative thinking , focused ideas, knowledge and dedication are some of the key factors in developing this site. In the coming year, I am carefully planning to develop another brand new site which will cater various information about my personal interests. I want it to be more comprehensive so that I can gain and acquire varieties of readers worldwide. I would like to ask help from Logo Designers to check out from their end on what will be the best and appropriate logo for my website. I want it to be simple, unique, creative and easy to identify. The process of finalizing the said plans is on going at this point in time. Many samples were give and I hope I can make a final decision  early  next month so that I can start it immediately by the year 2011.

Busy Week

With a few days to go before the Christmas my time is getting busier this week. Aside from work, I have to buy some presents and groceries for home. Some of my relatives will be staying before the 25th before going home to the province. The limited days ahead should be maximized so that I would not cram for the holiday rush. The holidays should be celebrated with cheer and not with stress.

Everybody feast with a sumptuous buffet dinner. So far this is the most enjoyable event of year.

Gift Tag

Gifts are often times attached with tags to make it more personalized and to served as an identifier. I got this Christmas tag from the first gift that I received days ago. It felt so special and personalized to received such gift. There are lots of printable gift tags found online and all you have to do is to search for some designs that you like then have them personalized for printing. For me gifts with tags show some sincere thoughts of sharing and giving which are the real essence of this holiday season.

EU Parks

This holiday season everybody has more time to enjoy, relax and unwind with their families and love ones. I am thankful for this many non working days because I can give myself a deserving break after so many stress from work, home, school and many other stress related activities. By next week ( this will be after Christmas ) I am going to the Holiday Parks in Europe together with the family. This will be the first family get together  abroad and we are already excited on our trip. I made an online reservation about this travel months ago so that I can avail of great added benefits being an early bird for the reservation. For sure everybody will enjoy this vacation because we will have two weeks including travel days. I already started packing up my things and have it light weight so that it will not be a problem during the travel time. We have lots of plans on what to do during the said vacation and  I hope that it will a fruitful and a meaningful trip for all.

Holiday Parks

It is always rewarding to oneself especially this holiday season to have break and have a breath of fresh air. Our lifestyles are often times associated with stress, depression, worries, deadlines and many more things that make living complicated. Having a break is the best thing to do at this time to unload ourselves. That is why I already availed last November a one (1) month vacation leave. This is a gift to myself  and I think I deserve to enjoy life this time. I will have a Self Catering Short Breaks in england together with my parent, relatives, siblings and my best friends. I already booked the online reservations including the travel packages so that it will be easy for us during our  travel schedule hopefully next week. I also availed the apartment where we will be staying as shown on the picture. This is fully equipped with kitchen, bath and shower, made up beds,linens, entertainment area,tea and coffee facilities etc. The spot is wi fi so communication will not be a problem here.I am already excited for the vacation break. More updates about my trip soon.

Rainy Weeks

Its almost two weeks now of having rains during late afternoons and evenings. I can feel the cold winds when I traveled  home every night  and this is most likely the Christmas weather already. Last night I got stuck in a traffic for an hour because of flood y roads. Many people were stranded in the malls and lined up waiting for public transport service. According the the weather bureau, the weather is affected by a tropical depression and the cold weather was brought about by winds coming from China. I hope the weather will be balance in the  coming days with the sunlight to warm  up again.

Hug Day

The hug is one of the most common human signs of love and affection, along with kissing.Hugs may also be exchanged as a sign of support and comfort. A hug can be a demonstration of affection and emotional warmth, sometimes arising out of joy or happiness at meeting someone.Hugs are mostly short and used to show many levels of affection.Hugging has been proven to have health benefits. One study has shown that hugs increase levels of oxytocin, and reduce blood pressure. Received my warm hugs with happiness and cheers.
Happy Hug Day everyone!

Advent

It is already Advent season. This is marked by a spirit of expectation, of anticipation, of preparation, of longing. There is a yearning for deliverance from the evils of the world, first expressed by Israelite slaves in Egypt as they cried out from their bitter oppression. It is the cry of those who have experienced the tyranny of injustice in a world under the curse of sin, and yet who have hope of deliverance by a God who has heard the cries of oppressed slaves and brought deliverance! Advent wreath with candles is being lighted in the church which started the season. We may be too busy in our worldly celebration. May the Almighty One be always the center of our joyous days this holiday season. 
A blessed Advent to all!

Face Towels

One of my personal essentials at home are these face towels. It has many uses especially for face and hands. I have green, brown, pink and red on my collection. I also shared some to my siblings because they needed it also. These little towels are very much needed here in a tropical country where most weathers are sunny. Face towels are small towels used to dry the face after washing. For the most part, personal towels such as the rectangular face towels and hand towels are considered ideal for placement near a sink or basin. Not every face towel is intended for practical use, however. Often, decorative face towels are used as a decorating accent and should not be used to dry the face or the hands.When placed in close proximity to a basin, the practical face towel is usually a simple design that makes use of absorbent fibers to create a thick yet soft material. I only bought some durable and quality face towels that can last for long time use.

Mobile Phone

Communication is very important part of life at present time and almost everyone has a mobile phone to use for communicating  family, friends, associates etc.  Cellular phone is an electronic device used for two-way radio telecommunication over a cellular network of base stations known as cell sites. It may differ from cordless telephones, which only offer telephone service within limited range through a single base station attached to a fixed land line, for example within a home or an office.A mobile phone allows its user to make and receive telephone calls to and from the public telephone network which includes other mobiles and fixed-line phones across the world. It does this by connecting to a cellular network owned by a mobile network operator. A key feature of the cellular network is that it enables seamless telephone calls even when the user is moving around wide areas via a process known as handoff or handover. I just recently bought this new Nokia 5130 cellphone and I was happy to have a new one with new features and functions. It is very user friendly and it did not gave a hard time analyzing its manual. When I can have time this weekend, I am planning to download some latest wallpapers, ringtones and other applications.

A touch of Scent


When holiday season is coming up there is always that anticipation of gifts from family and friends. As a woman I always love perfumes. When I received a perfume gift from Libby last year I was so happy and grateful for her thoughtfulness. I just do not know what is about perfume that makes it irresistible especially to women. Perhaps its the feminine scent that gives confidence and good aura to a woman wearing it. For this year, I am planning to give a unique perfume as a gift to my sister. She always deserves a special gift because of her perseverance and sacrifices. Her unwaivering support and dedication are truly appreciated in the family. This Lovely scent is so perfect for her personality. She can use it on her daily activities any time of the day. I hope she will be happy for this nice perfume. I still have to make some online reservation on women categories before it runs out of stock. There are plenty of choices on the site so just check it out.

Mt.Bulusan Explosion

Weekend headline was many residents flee from their homes to safety when Mt. Bulusan belched smokes and ash falls into the sky. This is an active volcano located in Sorsogon province southeast of Manila. Actually this is one of the country's active volcanoes. I saw in  television some people who walked in the streets covered by gray ashes. This natural calamity is health hazard especially to the residents/villagers near the volcano. The government is doing its best to help those people in the danger zone.

Lawyer Site

I had a chance to talked to my friend overseas and one of our chats was about Chinese drywall. This is a kind of hard substance used for making the inside wall of a building. She just made some home renovations in her kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom last month. All of the interior parts were installed with drywall as per recommendation of her friend who is a construction engineer. With all her confidence and innocence about such building material, it was later on found to be under investigation. Such kind of drywall has various effects especially to the health of the people living in the house. It has potential dangerous health hazards as reported to Florida's Department of Health.My friend was very worried because she just installed it and she took out quite an amount of expenses for her home renovation. She already referred her problem for investigation by the safety commission in the US. I am also hoping that proper investigation regarding this problem will come up so that it can be resolved the soonest possible time.

Personal Calculator

I bought this weekend a personal calculator where I can use either at home or in the office. I was forced to bought a new one because some at home are already worn out and defective. This is a small (often pocket-sized), usually inexpensive electronic device used to perform the basic operations of arithmetic. Modern calculators are more portable than most computers, though most PDAs are comparable in size to handheld calculators. Modern calculators are electrically powered (usually by battery and/or solar cell) and vary from cheap, give-away, credit-card sized models to sturdy adding machine-like models with built-in printers. This gadget is very much useful for me. I hope it would serve its purpose.

Pacquiao Victory

Another remarkable event yesterday for the country as Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao once again won the 8th World Championship title in boxing history. I watched the telecast from Dallas Cowboys stadium in Texas,USA and it was a tough fight for both fighters. Mexican Antonio Margarito was defeated and suffered a fractured eye socket. Pacquiao’s speed was far too much for Margarito to handle Saturday in their bout for the World Boxing Council super welterweight title before 41,734 fans at Cowboys Stadium. Pacquiao landed fast, hard combinations from the earliest moments of the fight and Margarito could not answer. The over-all fight was worth it as compared to the previous fight of Pacquiao. I hope this would not end the career of Pacman in boxing. A fight with Mayweather will surely be the most awaited by every boxing fans soon.

New technology products

Holiday season is coming up and most of the gadgets next month will be on sale in various malls including online stores. I am planning to buy a digital photo frame for my personal pictures at home.  I can also use it on so many family pictures that kept on file for quite some time already. This time I will try ordering through the website so that it would not be hassle for me. I just have to search  the internet about Dropship because this is the fast and easy way for requests and orders. This is said to be the retailing practice of sending items from a manufacturer directly to the consumers. I am already excited to received  my coming orders. I see to it that I can get the digital photo frames before Christmas next month. For sure my brothers and sister including my relatives will be happy to see their electronic photo albums being published at home. A great innovation for new technology products that the market consumers would surely benefit.

Noisy dog


I was not able to sleep earlier last night because my neighbor's dog barked  until early dawn. It was very  distracting especially that it was already my sleeping time and being tired from the day of activities. I went out of the house and checked out . It was a small dog that  was left by an irresponsible  owner alone  keeping it's head out of the gate barking and barking. It seemed that the dog was depressed and left hungry alone. I pity him but the noise was more annoying. Good thing it stopped so the neighborhood including me were able to sleep again.

Blog about Howard Miller Clocks!


One home accessory that I always love to buy is a clock. It is one important element of home for me. I hang wall clocks on my bedroom and dining area and usually some little standing clocks on top of the refrigerator, television set and on my personal cabinet. Time is precious in my daily living so in as much as possible I value every minute and every hour that may pass. I bought a special howard miller clock for my living room because this is the receiving area and it should have a contemporary kind of clock that is unique and elegant.  I placed it in a side wherein it serves its purpose and at the same time a beautiful decorative time piece. When my siblings saw it they were very  happy and really liked the clock's design. So with my friends Lyd and Lib who is also planning to buy that same kind of clock. I immediately introduced them online and try to find out many great products to choose. Its just interesting to see home with many kinds of clocks.

Cold nights are here


I can already feel cold nights at the start of this week. When I rode the jeep going home cool air  can be sensed which signified the change of temperature. This usually happens during December but for this year it is earlier.Maybe this is part of the global climate change. Long sleeves, sweat shirts, jackets or blankets will be needed for the coming days until December. I love cool nights but just get rid of flu and cold attacks as the common sicknesses on this kind of weather condition.

Web hosting rating site

When I started about a year ago on my online journal, I really had a hard time because I had no idea on how to get the process of  blogging. It may sound easy for those who were already in this kind of activity but as a beginner it was a cramming scenario. I was very diligent then to looked and searched for many different ideas from various websites. I found time to searched for best web hosting services because through this you can developed a very good and creative sites whether personal or for business purposes. I always believed in the saying that you always reaped what you sowed. Now I am earning my hard work and it is very self fulfilling seeing the fruits of my labor. I am planning to develop more sites for my upcoming business and with ideas in mind,this time it would be easy for me. There are many great things to be found on online searches so thanks for the modern technology of the internet.

Wall Clock

I have this wall clock hanged in the dining area that I just bought this weekend in the mall. I like the watermelon design because it is simple and unique for the place in the house There is no chime for this clock so it performs with the very basic function of showing the time using size AA battery. This wall clock would always reminds me of  valuing time in all the days of life.

Big Miracle Fruit

After months of growing until fully matures, at last this big miracle fruit was finally picked up from hanging on one of its big branches. It weighed 5.5 kilos and so far the heaviest . The fruit was sliced using a saw and  the inner part was composed of thick layers. Strong smell that can be compared to a paint  but the taste is quite sweet. Now I know what this fruit is all about as many passers by are curious about it.

Another Souvenir


This is another item to include in my souvenir collection. A light silver key chain from the Lion City, Singapore.I can use this key chain to  be a short chain used to link together a number of keys or other items. Or maybe even hung it on walls.  This act as a reminder of the trip of a friend since it can be carried around during everyday life. Key chains  also are gender and age neutral and can appeal to many types of vacation shoppers as give aways.

Christmas Cards (nofollow)

 I am already excited  on the coming holidays. Well  it is barely two months from now and at this early time I am preparing some lists of people to be given  gifts and also holiday cards.This is my personal way of giving thanks to my family, friends and office mates for the great things that they contributed to my life in many different ways this year. For the gifts in kind I would like to have personalized items such as mugs, statement shirts, key holders, key chains and decors. For the cards, I want my  message to be personally written to have a personalized touch of me in celebration of the holidays. There will be lots of celebrations before the year 2010 ends and it is very important to plan ahead all the necessary things so that cramming can be avoided when it comes. I would even encourage my siblings, Anne,Dick and Ruben to prepare for their holiday plans too. Perhaps Mymy and Lyd would like to try the cards as their gifts for Christmas and New year. Looking forward for a great holiday celebration and I am hoping that all things will be realized as planned.

Showtime First Anniversary



It is Saturday already and my favorite weekend is here again . I am late to make some posts and update here because I watched the first anniversary of Showtime. This is a pre-noontime variety show airing in a local television that also airs worldwide. The show stars  Vice Ganda,Vhong Navarro, Kim Atienza,Jugs,Teddy and Anne Curtis. Each of them made a show presentation to be judged by some special guests.  I can say that it was all fun, fun,fun as they showed their different talents in dancing, singing, rock performances and comedy acts. The prize for the winner group was given to the "madlang people" as their way of thanking their avid supporters and fans. The show is  creative and already gaining highest rating and popularity on the local television.

New Furniture

I just finished the renovation of my bedroom and I am happy to see it all done after a month of work. My next step now is to buy a rustic furniture for my new bed. A new room always deserves a nice,quality and comfortable bed. I read that we should choose quality furniture for our bed because we are spending half of our lives in sleeping. I like the queen size and I would like it to be comfortable with quality and durable foam, comforter, pillows and pillow cases. The color should match my personality as I like simple and natural yet elegant  bed. My family and relatives can also share with my room whenever they would come for a visit. I already made a canvass regarding the furniture by getting all the details in price and shipping costs. The excitement is already here as I wait for the arrival of my new bedroom set. Perhaps I can share this to my friends and office mates so that if ever they are interested, they can order on the online site for more beautiful and interesting offers.

Super typhoon is coming

The weather forecasters predicted typhoon "Megi" to become a super typhoon once it makes a landfall in Luzon by Monday. This could so far be the strongest weather disturbance for the country. Here in Davao City at the moment the weather is cloudy and might have rains in the evening. Yesterday there was a little rainfall in the downtown area only. I hope to rain more because the city starts to dry up for almost two months already. Typhoon usually hits Luzon and Visayas areas but still the city can be affected by heavy down pour if ever super typhoon comes.

Miner's Success


One amazing world news this week was the success of the thirty three (33) Chile miners who were trapped on August 5 by a huge rock that collapsed inside the mine. They had almost given up for dead before a probe sent down through a narrow bore hole struck lucky on August 22. They were still alive and finally rescued from that deadly experience. I salute to the organized and well planned rescue  of their government. Great job well done.
