Being Mysterious

I have been thinking lately and now I've come to a decision. A decision to be a little bit mysterious of my plans. I'm the type of person who doesn't want other people to make plans for me. I want to plan on my own and work for it. I came to realized that I was way too open about my life with other people, the plans I have and the ways to attain it. Unfortunately, there were times that I failed and now people had expected too much from me, especially my parents. It's kind of sickening. And now, I just wanted to do things discreetly. ;)

Cherished Those Memories

There are various moments in our lives that are worth to be remembered at. And one way of doing so is capturing every moments by using a digital camcorders. You can never bring back the past but you can reminisce and remember every single detail of it through a video. It's even nicer when generations after you can see it. It's one good bonding moments with your family and friends.

The Danger of Asbestos Exposure

Lately, I've been hearing cancer cases on different people nowadays. One of which is the news about our former President Cory Aquino, who is currently battling with colon cancer. Another one is my Aunt, who, same with Cory, is also battling with colon cancer. Cancer is one feared disease of the many and malignant Mesothelioma is one different rare type of cancer. It can be acquired through asbestos exposure and workers in the company that deals with asbestos containing products are at high risks. There's no known cure for it yet but it can be preventable.

The Next Time Around

For several years, I am a subscriber of a certain GSM network. Our family purchased one of their plan packages and received a free unit. That's good for 2 years contract. Unfortunately, I cannot use this unit with another network and I have to have it unlocked first. We managed to unlocked our other cellphone units but this LG unit of my brother's is kinda expensive to unlock. That's the downside of it I guess. That's why he decided to buy a new one instead. And this time it's an unlocked phone.

Waiting for His Return Text

It was kinda odd that I haven't heard from him the whole day. His mobile phone's cannot be reached and I've talked to his cousin and informed me he's not home yet and that he's phone's battery is empty. I was worried. It's his second day to that new place where he is now and I was concerned that he might be lost.

I was relieved when I finally knew from his cousin that he's already home. But I still cannot reach his mobile phone. At least he's safe. But can't he be considerate enough to return my text and just informed me that he's okay? I was worried sick.

My Cousin and His Spectacles

Haven't seen this cousin of mine for quite sometime and just recently, I saw him again during our grandmother's birthday. I was surprised to see him wearing his spectacles. And I immediately remembered the $ 8 Rx eyeglasses of Zenni Optical on TV!!! He's more geek looking now but with style. LOL. And his eyeglasses looks almost the same as the picture above. High Five to Zenni Optical!

Sad Being Apart

Yes it is! And that's what I'm currently feeling at this moment. It's even harder when there are still issues left unresolved. Various thoughts, even ill ones, came crossing my mind. I'm wondering how he is doing and what activities of daily living he have out there. Nonetheless, all I can do is hope and pray that he will be safe and well. Wishing he'll still come home soon as he had promised.

Planning A Surprise

A special someone of mine will be out of the country for a year to work. It will be lonesome without him especially that we've had problems recently. Being away from each other makes our communication even more difficult. And so I was planning to make some messages in a piece of paper and placed it inside a nice container I found in one of the cardboard displays online that he can pick everyday to remind him of me. I do hope he'll love it.

Rental Homes

Going for a vacation in North Carolina?

I recommend planning your trip very well before jumping on to it. It's fun traveling and going for a vacation. Giving time for yourself or even get a time to bond with your friends or family. It's even more relaxing if you choose to stay in one of the finest beach homes for rent on the Outer Banks. Choosing Outer Banks rentals will help make your vacation more memorable.

Insurance for your Motorhome

There are quite some interesting people who own a motorhome. I think it's a brilliant idea owning one when you are fond of traveling around the states. You don't have to look for a motel on your way through your destination and just use your vehicle as your accommodation. The inventor of this is a genius! Purchasing a motorhome insurance is I think a necessity to safeguard your vehicle and your other properties in it.

Protecting Your Home

I experienced encountering a burglar in our house before. It was around 3 a.m. where all the neighborhoods are all asleep. But this guy, managed to get inside our front yard by climbing pass our fence. He was trying to invade inside our house by tearing the wire screen in our windows. And my room's window is one of them. It was scary confronting this burglar and because of my fear, I wasn't able to yell aloud for help. Good thing my parents were able to hear my low scream in my room and told them immediately that there's a robber outside my window.

Fortunately, we were not harmed and none of our properties were stolen. But because of this incident, I think having a home alarm systems is a must.

Learning to Play the Piano

Back in my childhood years, I envied my cousin who, in her summer time, enrolled for a piano lesson. I accompanied here once in her class and there I saw how she was being taught by her instructor and how lovely her fingers looked while playing the piano. At that time, I wanted to learn how to play piano too. Good thing during our music class in school, we were taught the basics on how to play the piano. At that moment, I was really happy.

Dreaming About Disney Florida

It's one of my dreams to go and visit Disneyland in Orlando, Florida. I love Disney! The first time I got to visit Disneyland was in Hong Kong last two years ago. It was a magical feeling and I felt like being a child again. There I saw my favorite Disney characters and rode some of their rides. It was amazing and I had a lot of fun there. And so I think that Disney in Orlando is even more fun. So by the time I'll get an opportunity to have my Orlando vacations, I'll make sure to visit Disneyland and other Orlando theme parks.

Best for commercial and residential use, and I was thinking this is perfect if you are planning to make your own bar. It could also be use as accents to give more drama into your home's interior design. These metal tiles are very modern and very lovely to use.

There are a wide variety of faucets found in your local hardware and when I went around to go on window shopping, I find it challenging and fun to choose various household parts for your home, including the faucets. I had this impression before that if you buy something expensive, you get the best quality for that product. But then I was wrong. It doesn't happen most of the time because my father was able to buy a durable discount faucets for our kitchen. And I thought it was a good deal.
