Handy water bottle

The job of my brother has been busy for the past weeks because their shop transferred to its new location. There are lots of office equipments that  need some special handling like the big printers. His busy job is stressful and he needs to hydrate himself always. A handy water bottle is very important for him to carry everyday filling it with an alkaline water. The container has the capacity of seven hundred milliliters of water enough to satisfy the thirst from the hard days of work. A personal essential to have in a day to day activities.

Sleeveless ladies' top

Its fun to just stroll in a women's shopping stall without the intention of buying something but when I saw a nice sleeveless ladies' top, I cannot resist but to buy one for myself. Well I actually have no more sleeveless that really fit because those that I bought years back were already tight to wear. This sleeveless top is made of quality material and have a nice fit that I can pair with my favorite jeans.

Stressful week

It has been a stressful week for me and I am thankful because I was able to handle it in such a way that it would not make me go nuts. Work was filing up and my father was hospitalized due to pneumonia. My sister had to visit and take care of him personally. I had to gave her money for her transportation and allowance. From time to time we were keeping an update because it was hard to get sick especially with the elderly. Aside from these, I had many bills and dues that should be settled. Actually not all but I had to prioritized those that were important. Life is hard really. I hope this will over the soonest time.

Facial toner

I am giving special care to my skin everyday to keep it clean, moisturize and healthy. The other day I found out that my facial toner was consumed already. Quite fast in less than a month because me and my sister were sharing in using the liquid toner. My face has good complexion when I use the anti age toner. It is not the kind of commercial toner that is harsh to the skin. This toner closes my visible pores on my face though I am not an acne prone skin but I have few white heads and black heads on my t-zones areas. The facial toner in somehow enhanced my face and keeps it free from blemishes for ten months of using it. I want to keep my face as good and healthy always.

Fragrance mist gift for me

Such a sweet gesture from Atche during her visit here last Friday. She is a close family friend and every time she visits she always spend an overnight sleep at home. One of her give away for us (advance Christmas gift) is a fragrance mist of strawberries & champagne. A feminine indulgence, a splash of flirtation with wild strawberries and sparkling champagne. This is one of the collections of victoria secret fragrance mist in 8.4 flow oz bottle. Every spray has a sweet smell that would keep me cool and fresh at any time of the day. I prefer to spray the mist after bath for a more perfect scent. Thank you for the generosity of this fragrance mist that me and my sister would truly enjoy using it.

James Bond 007 Skyfall

I was invited by my brother to watched last Saturday the new movie release of James Bond 007  Skyfall. This is said to be the twenty third release of Bond movies. Daniel Craig still plays a handsome role as James Bond together with some beautiful leading ladies. I have noticed that there were changes on the movie plot as compared with the previous 007 films. Highly sophisticated arms were not so introduced. More on the action scenes by Daniel Craig. Me and my brother had a great bonding time watching this movie for two hours in the nearby mall. A great movie watch for entertainment. I hope to watch some nice movies coming soon.

Non working days

I have all my time at home since Thursday until this weekend. It is declared as non working holidays because of the all souls day and the all saints day. Through out the weekend all in all it is four days of rest and relaxation. For me this is the time to attend to my personal mess at home. This is the only time to overhaul the personal items that I home and arrange them. It is so tiring because I had been washing the linens since Thursday. It ‘s just today that most of my washing is already minimized. Thank you for this long weekend holiday. A great time to have a break and spend time to my personal sanctuary at home. I hope to make the most out of this holiday blessing.

I was curious about trying some products about skin care so when I did the grocery shop the other day, I dropped by at the skin products section and bought a pack of moisturizing bath salt. Actually it has many benefits – skin whitening, slimming product with milk formula and natural spa salt benefits. It provides nourishment to the skin with pure milk. It also removes dirt deposits and dead skin cells from the body giving a new radiant skin. The direction to use is very simple. Just pour the bath salt in the palm, rub gently in circular motion on wet skin. Leave it for at least three minutes then rinse off with water. I tried using this the other day and I can see the nice effects on me. Maybe when I will use this regularly, my skin will be looking good, clear and smooth.

Its spooky celebration! I am strolling in the malls and many people are in costume for the scariest activity of the year. Different kinds of costumes from fairies, superheroes, angels, horror personalities, celebrities and many more persons or things to personify for this kind occasion. Though there is an office today I try to be in the occasion. I wear my black blouse with some named glitter in front and a see through back. Simple and fits for the Halloween theme. For me this kind of activity is all about fun, fun and fun. Happy Halloween!

This Sunday's Gospel

Mark 10:46-52As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. 47 On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.”48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me.” 49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage; get up, he is calling you.” 50 He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.” 52 Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way. The gospel is about continued faith and hope especially on this uncertain times. Each one of us has our own times of life. God is an all loving God who will never abandoned us. Keep up the faith and trust for He cares.

I was busy last weekend on some household chores. Bad thing was my bother just recovered from flu and my sister was starting to have flu also. Most of the household things were done by me. Too tired! I checked the wall clock and found out that it was no longer functioning so I decided to bought one size double battery from a store. My brother fixed it inside the clock and now it is functioning again. The life of the battery usually lasts for two to three months. Good service anyway because it is not the rechargeable kind but the disposable one.

Saturday, October 20, 2012

I am using a ladies watch on my left wrist and it come to my mind at this moment to write a post about this quality kind of timepiece. My watch is about six years already and I can say that I invested in a good kind of watch so far. For six years, the battery was just replaced last week (for the first time) since my last purchased of it. It is two toned in colors gold and silver bracelet. Elegant to use whether I am at work or at any occasion. I do not have to be protect it from moisture like rain or to exposure in the sun because the protection is made of quality metal. If given an opportunity to buy another watch, I would see to it that I have quality timepiece.

Blouse on sale

Sometimes it is fun to do some window shopping even if you do not have any intentions at all of buying. One weekend afternoon, I was able to bought a green colored ladies’ top blouse. Green is my favorite color and the blouse immediately captured my attention. It is made from a known brand and I checked out the quality and design, I was interested and it fitted well with me. I immediately bought it at a sale price. Nice to pair with fitting skiny jeans with pumps, platform shoes or wedge sandals. Now I have a reserved outfit to wear for any occasion coming up especially that Christmas time is just a few months to go.

Tempting berry lotion

I got this as a present from a family friend when she visited for a vacation. Tempting berry hydrating body lotion in lotus flower and juicy apple extracts. Good timing because I ran out of my personal lotion already. It smells fresh and clean when  I apply after a shower bath. Sexy and sweet, a great skin indulgence everyday. Thanks, thanks for the generosity of giving me this present.

Hair trim schedule

It is my schedule again for some hair trim in my favorite hair salon in the mall. Its been three months since my last haircut actually.  I am blessed with a thick and fast growing hair as almost an inch grows every month and that makes my hair longer this time. Layered cuts are ideal for my hair type. I have it cut just a few inches below my shoulder level. It is nice to feel that my hair is trimmed and blow dry  again. Manageable and bouncy.One way of keeping my mane healthy ..

Another year, another life

A special day to be truly thankful for because it is another year of life for me. Great day to celebrate God's love. Here are some nice quotes that I have read for sharing here about celebrating one's special day:

 Your birthday is a special time to celebrate the gift of "you" to the world.

You are only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime.

If there’s something that you’re dreaming of then may it all come true, because you deserve it all…HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.

Sing a song of Birthdays Full of fun and cheer And may you keep on having them For many a happy year.

Gospel reflections

 A blessed Sunday! The gospel for today  is taken from Mark 10:2-16; 
"Some Pharisees came and put him to the test with this question, “Is it right for a husband to divorce his wife?” He replied, “What law did Moses give you?” They answered, “Moses allowed us to write a certificate of dismissal in order to divorce.” Then Jesus said to them, “Moses wrote this law for you, because you are stubborn. But in the beginning of creation God made them male and female, and because of this, man has to leave father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one body. So they are no longer two but one body. Therefore let no one separate what God has joined.” When they were indoors at home, the disciples again asked him about this and he told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against his wife, and the woman who divorces her husband and marries another also commits adultery.” People were bringing their little children to him to have him touch them, and the disciples rebuked them for this. When Jesus noticed it, he was very angry and said, “Let the children come to me and don’t stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” Then he took the children in his arms and laying his hands on them, blessed them."  In this modern times, many couples' marriages are affected by the evil forces that caused the breakages of union. Men and women who agreed to matrimony often ended in separation which is the common problems that I often hear from friends, relatives, office mates and some people. A norm that caused a lot in the basic form of society - family.  Marriage is not something to enter to just because others are into it. For me it takes a lot of discernment and God's intervention to be with a right man or woman.

My bed comforters

I consider my bedroom as my personal sanctuary. There is a statement that I read that we are spending half of our lives in sleeping and resting. So it is important for me to  have a nice and comfortable bedroom at home. I really invested on my bed comforters years back. The comforters are type of blankets intended to keep warm especially during sleep and relaxation. I always feel rested when I am in my bedroom with these floral, fluffy and soft comforters.

drivers test from dmv cheatsheets

I have no driving skill ever since and I decide to learn such skill this time. My brand new car just arrived home the other day and I should learn to drive it immediately.  I know that the practice about driving is to enroll in an accredited driving school. It is usually five to ten days of lectures and hands on the wheel. I think this kind of learning is very time consuming because I need to spend hours everyday to be able to finished the required time. My brother told me the other day to try taking a course that offers quick and easy study guides through online practice tests. A beginner will be given some essential study guide questions, traffic signs and signals to know and requirements for getting the license. After that a drivers test from dmv cheatsheets will be given to answer and after passing it, a licensed to drive will be presented immediately.  This is interesting for me and I want to try it. I am assured that the money that I will be paying is guaranteed to give back the results that I expect. I already made reservations and my test will be scheduled on Wednesday. Driving is a good skill and a person should have a thorough know how on the entire process. It feels exciting to learn new training/experience and be able to do well on it.

Insurance payment

My brother had been waiting for the quarterly policies of his insurances. It was just this quarter that he was not able to received the papers. He requested me to called the hotline or trunk line numbers of the insurance company and I was able to talked to the customer service. They had a problem with the printing and  soon be sending policies to the plan holders. Without receiving the policies, my brother just paid one the other day which will soon be due on the fifteenth of this month. Looking forward for the time where his insurance be finally fully paid.

Silver jewelries

I like wearing jewelries. I think it is every woman's passion to wear them during casual or special occasions. I have gold, two toned kinds of jewelries in y personal closet. My favorite to wear this time are silver jewelries because I like to match them with any get up that I have everyday. It is very convenient for me like a silver earring paired with a silver necklace as well. I hope to buy jewelries soon when I can have extra money for my personal indulgence.

Biometrics in the office

The office has been using biometrics as form of identification for all the employees. We were individually introduced to it last week and each one of us are required to use such technology for checking in and checking out of our daily attendance. The usual punching time card before was already phased out. It has measurable characteristics of individuals that are being registered through the finger prints. Everyday in the office I have to access myself with the use of the biometrics.

Typhoon Lawin

I thought that the day today is sunny because as I see the clear sky. But on the middle of the morning , the clouds turn gray and start to come together to drop rains. The rain starts to pour at six o'clock in the morning  with interference at noon time. Then it rain again the whole afternoon until evening. According to the weather bureau, today is the landfall of typhoon named Lawin. The rainy weather is expected until Wednesday next week. I just have to stay at home because of this weather disturbance.

Washing sponge

I remember to buy a new dish washing sponge today as needed for washing utensils at home. I used to buy sponges that are inexpensive but the results were not that good. Cheap sponges worn out easily and its maximum usage only lasted for two weeks.  I choose to buy this time the one with good quality that can sustain even for many washing of kitchen utensils. It is colored green with some floral designs.Though pricey but the performance is very good.

Personal handkerchiefs

I bought four kinds of handkerchiefs the other day because my old ones were already worn out. Having a handkerchief is my personal habit in every occasion  or at any activity that I have. Intended for personal hygiene such as wiping of hands and face. I choose the cotton fabric because it is absorbent and not too harsh on skin use. Colors that I bought are floral green, polka dot blue, striped orange and floral pink. Now I can have variety of handkerchiefs to use daily.

School credentials

I was busy last weekend and even until today because I have to request some important school credentials like my diploma and transcript of records from the university where I graduated my bachelors degree course. Such documents should be authenticated meaning it should be stamped and signed by the notarial office. These are one of the requirements that I will be submitting to qualify for the pre- employment exam to conducted this coming December. I hope to be finished of my authentication errands before the month ends.

Floral purse bag

I always enjoy shopping for some little stuffs at a women's accessories store whenever I have time. When I got a chance to shop last weekends, I immediately purchased this floral pink purse bag. This would be very helpful for me in my daily carry on bag because I will be able to organize my personal belongings like mirror, lipsticks, perfumes, lipsticks and many other small items that I bring with me everyday.  One essential bag that every woman should have.

Ephphetha, be opened

The gospel today is from the book of Gospel: Mk 7:31–37. Again Jesus set out; from the country of Tyre he passed through Sidon and skirting the sea of Galilee he came to the territory of Decapolis. There a deaf man who also had difficulty in speaking was brought to him. They asked Jesus to lay his hand upon him. Jesus took him apart from the crowd, put his fingers into the man’s ears and touched his tongue with spittle. Then, looking up to heaven, he groaned and said to him, “Ephphetha,” that is, “Be opened.” And his ears were opened, his tongue was loosened, and he began to speak clearly. Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone, but the more he insisted on this, the more they proclaimed it. The people were completely astonished and said, “He has done all things well; he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.”
Ephphetha - means be opened. My personal reflection about the gospel today can be related to the modern times wherein most people are so obsessed with the material world. They try to be deaf to reality. It is about opening our personal senses clearing our thoughts and opening our minds to the real world. God wants us to open ourselves to the truth and make it part of our spiritual experience with Him.

Floral door mat

Sometimes it is good to window shop without the intention of buying something especially when I do the malling. Last weekend I was able to bought this floral door mat. Very good timing because some of my door mats at home are already worn out. This kind of piece is useful as a sole scrub mat before entering the bathroom. It is made of quality kind of fabric that can serve many purposes in my household. I would like to buy some more door mats for the main door and also for the kitchen.

Kabbage online loan

It has been my dream to own a business and this year is a right time to start my plans to have one. My passion is cooking. I love to try and experiment many dishes both local and international cuisines. My craft is enhanced and I learned a lot about culinary after I graduated a six month course last summer. I know that starting a business requires knowledge and skills. Thorough planning is what I am doing this time and my major concern is the financing aspects. As a beginner, I am quite hesitant to get some loans offered by big financial institutions and companies. Just being cautious because doing a business is a gamble itself. The probability is either one or zero. I want to take steps on at a time. I learned about Kabbage online loan which can  help entrepreneurs like me in offering loan assistance to help grow the business. As I read about their profile, I have decided to apply to their offers because the requirements needed can be easily provided and I think I am qualified to avail of their loan. If I can comply with their requirements I can get the funds immediately and it is hassle free. Many of my friends already availed loan from them and their image is very reputable in the market because they maintain the trust and confidence of their customers  This online offer can really be of help to make my restaurant business grow. The certainty in business  depends on believing in your capabilities and the willingness to do the right thing. I hope that I will prosper in this personal undertaking of making my passion into a good business venture.

Hospitalization benefits

My father is sick and he needs an immediate medical help. He is suffering some shoulder pains and it was bothering him for the past two days already. The doctor immediately assists him and check out the possible cause of such pain. Tests, ecg, x-ray -- these are some of the medical check that are perform to him. Based on the results my father has a pneumonia. Though his heart is clear (thanks God!). It is expected at his age of seventy nine because of his immune system and resistance to some sickness. We in the family are very thankful that he is able to recover and the pain slowly goes out from his system.  As a senior citizen, he is an automatic member of a health insurance and his hospitalization is covered by more than half of the total hospitalization bills. We are thankful because it lessen the expenses aside from the medicines that are needed after my father will check out from admittance. This health benefit is something that is really important to have in cases of hospitalization.

Skywatch of Mount Arayat

This  shot was taken during a vacation in Pampanga located in Luzon. A view of Mount Arayat, the famous mountain in the province. It was one o'clock  when this shot was taken but the clouds were already forming and rain was expected that day. The cool winds of the afternoon just made my sky watching fun and exciting. Happy skywatching to all. Have a great weekend!

Weekend film watch - Bourne Legacy

Me and my siblings were having a bonding time last weekend. We watched the movie "The Bourne Legacy" which stars Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz. This movie made us interested before its final screening because some of location shots were taken here in the Philippines. There were local actors and actresses who also auditioned and played roles on this film.  This movie is the fourth film in the Bourne film series. Most of the previous Bourne movies were interesting and we were just excited because Philippines was chosen as the shooting venue especially on the motorcycle chase. A great movie watch which makes me proud of my country and the people.

Congrats dream team!

advantage for dogs at vet depot

I love dogs since I was a kid. There is that special bonding between me and my pets that always makes me happy every time I am with them at home. Chowie and Puggie are my two cute lovely dogs for five years now. Chowie is a  male breed of chow chow with brown, dense and almost thick fur all over his body. While Puggie is a breed of pug considered as a toy dog, wrinkly face and with short tail. Colored fawn in almost all of his body except that his nose is black. I am always responsible as far as food, health and safety of my dogs are concern. Every weekend is my schedule to buy their needs like pet grooming supplies, supplements, flea and tick control, eye and ear care, antibiotics and other dog needs. It is always an advantage for dogs at vet depot because they have all the necessary products for dog owners like me. This is a complete store of pet medicines and supplies. They even have products for cats and other small pets too.I can save time and energy because it is a one stop shop. Having two dogs at home is not an easy task. It requires personal time with them because their needs are much more like that of humans. Good thing because I have an assistant to take care of Chowie and Puggie when I am at work or having some out of town trips.I hope to have more time to enjoy with my favorite dogs at home this weekend.

The country experience today some heavy rains brought about by monsoon weather. A typhoon was not reported b the weather bureau but the hours of heavy downpour resulted to floods in most of the cities in Luzon. The weather here in Davao today is sunny and rain could not be expected until late in the afternoon. Very opposite from what is happening in Luzon. Live television broadcast for the whole day on some affected cities. Classes suspended and works are cancelled in private offices. Harsh weather is always expected yearly and I hope it would not get worst in the next days or weeks.

Dream team in London Olympics

I am a basketball fan of the NBA and I always have time to watch the dream team USA playing in the London Olympics. They played with Lithuania yesterday and it was a challenging event because the team was almost beaten at the quarter half. Good thing they were able to beat until the last quarter declaring them as the winner for that game. I am looking forward to watch more winning games of the dream team until they will go on the finals of the Olympics.

Olympics 2012

The Olympic games for this year 2012 just started and so far it has the most spectacular opening ceremony for me. I stayed in front of the live telecast from London on television at home and every presentation was beautifully performed. Many nations participated including the Philippines. Chosen qualified athletes from here joined the parade and I was happy to saw them carrying the country flag with pride. I can say that Olympic games is an extravagant competition of the nations and hosting such prestigious event requires four years of preparation and a huge amount of money as well. I cannot wait to watch my favorite games for the next two weeks of Olympic time.

I always stay fit, trim and healthy for ten years now. Exercise, healthy lifestyle, and good diet are  contributing factors that keep my body beautiful until this time. It is a personal commitment to stay this way because I value myself. It should be nurtured and cared the natural way to be able to live life  the best that I can be. I have noticed that I easily gained weight if I cannot do some exercises every week. This happened when I was busy at work assignments and other personal responsibilities. While spending time at home one afternoon, I read a beauty magazine that wrote about slimming effects of wearing a camisole. It said that there are special shape wears that can help trim down and even create some slimming effects to the body. Shape wear is also called as foundation garment which is design to temporarily alter the wearers body shape achieving a more fashionable figure. This makes me interested so I immediately check out a slimming camisole at AnnetteOnline. They offer quality apparels and lingerie that suit to every woman's need. Some specific styles had been essential to some fashion movements and required some social situations. So I am making sure that I am getting the right kind of shape wear basically for comfort and also for a nice style as well. I think I have to recommend this to my sister and also to my girl friends who are also concern about their body figures. In my own way I will be able to share my thoughts and ideas about looking or feeling  beautiful and sexy even as we age.

Sometimes it is fun to buy some nice souvenir items when visiting places. When my sister visited Cebu City months ago she was able to buy this tribal necklace in a religious shrine. This necklace is being sold in the area where most local tourist did some petitions or prayers. Common features of the necklace are beads and polished shells . It is semi choker, just fit to wear in the neck. A nice accessory to wear everyday when wearing jeans, flats and plain tops. Any casual wardrobe can be paired with this necklace.

best way to stop drinking

The modern and changing lifestyles of people nowadays greatly affect their health condition. Smoking, drinking and other habits of extremely bad and immoral behavior are some factors. Such vices become a burden to families and to the society.  I can personally relate to this because my bother was once a drinker. He cannot say no to friends and always joined with them in parties and occasions for some drinking spree. They were together in a table full of rum, gin, beer bottles and other alcoholic beverages. The enjoyment was until early hours of the morning and all of them can no longer stand and carry themselves from being drunk of all those alcohol intakes. As a sister my concern was always about his health because alcohol has bad effects to the liver and other internal organs. Last year my brother developed a stomach ulcer and he experienced too much pain because the lining of his intestines got acidic and sore which produced a poisonous substance in the digestive system.  I know that quitting for an alcohol was hard for a person who already used to it but we gave him an ultimatum to change his lifestyle or else he will deteriorate at an early age. Good thing he listened to us. My brother was able to seek some help on the best way to stop drinking. It enabled him to rid of chemical dependence and live a sober and healthy life. His personal affirmation to quit drinking was a big help for his recovery.  Cravings for alcohol no longer bothers him and it really saved his life, family and career.

Dolphy, an icon to remember

The week has been full of news updates regarding the passing of Dolphy. He was a famous comedy icon in show business and his passing was a loss not just to the industry but to all the people who were fans of the late comedy king. Mang Dolphy was laid to rest yesterday and I was watching the television since Saturday. The tributes for him were all about the good things that this man had sowed while he was still living. His generosity, good heart, humble attitude and being a loving family man made him a person to be truly appreciated. A great loss to the movie industry, but his legacy as an icon will always be remembered.

gmat classes

I am planning to enroll myself in masters degree this year. I have not chosen what school to enroll yet but I already have some lists of international business schools as references. As a graduate of bachelor of science in business administration major in management, I want to take some further studies because I believe that there are still lots of things that I need to learn  in relation to my course. It took a year for me to decide about this plan because I still consider my finances and time. I have to save an amount of money for my admission, enrollment and tuition fees. Next month will be the schedule of my gmat classes. This is an extensive course wherein I will learn an approach on the examination then apply the techniques to practice questions inside and outside the room. Some tools will be given in preparation for my exam potentials. It is called GMAT prep. My present job as an executive officer of a service company has help me in developing my managerial and leadership skills. I believe that this masters degree would help improve my practice and establish a successful career in business management. My application and essay  schedule for  round one will be this coming October. and everyday I am doing an online research and tutorial sessions so that I can start familiarizing and learning on my curriculum. This is another career challenge for me and I believe that I can make it.

Social media day

A special day to give tribute to everyone who gives importance to the social media. Bloggers, Facebook users, Twitter and many more internet sites where people interact. These are some of the popular social media that influence the lives of the users and followers worldwide. I am a blogger for more than three years now and I enjoy being part of the social media. I get updated with the local and international trends and also it gives me more knowledge and language skill to interact with people. Being in the social media is also a responsibility which means true and informative to what you are telling. It may be your own opinion but always be careful on your thoughts and ideas to share with others.

Souvenir hat

It is fun to join some city festivals. This hat is a nice souvenir from a festival in Visayas during my sister's trip. It is made of native materials, hand woven and painted to create an attractive souvenir item. She brought it with her when she got home. It is very useful during outdoor trips and a good protection from the heat  of the sun. A typical Filipino souvenir that makes the Philippines a country of fun.

Studded earrings

My favorite accessory is a pair of earrings. My sister bought this one pair for me as her present during her trip to Cebu City.  I like the studs because its multicolored and I can wear it with any kind of attire everyday.  She bought this in a ladies fashion shop and right timing because it was a summer sale. I like this earrings and wearing it feels fashionable and in trend.

Easy saver account

I recently opened my personal account in the bank. It is an atm savings account that has no monthly charges, no maintaining balance and earning an interests monthly. I decided to open because I had bad experiences to my old accounts where my money was deducted whenever it fell below the maintaining balance. This easy saver has no maintaining amount and I can easily withdraw from any atm machines nationwide. The inter branch deposit is free and I will not be worried of any possible deductions because there is no maintaining balance. Good thing I was able to open this personal easy saver account.

Rainy season is here

The month of June marks the start of the rainy season and today I experience a heavy rainfall that started late in the afternoon until evening. According to the weather bureau, there is a low pressure happening on the northern part of the city where I am living now and also a tropical depression in the eastern part of the country which is expected to be a typhoon in the next coming days.  I like rainy days actually because the rain is very valuable especially to the farmers who will be preparing the rice fields for the planting season. Also the rain helps wash away the air brought about by the past summer months keeping the atmosphere clean and cool. Not too much anyway because it will cause some floods which can hamper the lives of the people here.
