Being a wife for about nine years now (has it been that long already?!), it still never fails to make my heart beat faster every time hubby surprises me with little stuffs. By little stuffs I meant simple things like a chocolate bar which he got for me when he arrived from work (we three -including our 8 year-old son- shared the chocolate bar after dinner), or when he decided to buy the grocery items we needed for a week (I couldn't go because I was too sick to go to the grocery store). Things like these really made me realize that I am so lucky to have met him.

But do you think guys like him need more romance tips? Honestly, I think any man (or woman) could never get enough tips when it comes to relationships. The relationship should always be vibrant and ever-growing. So I suggest that you check out and see what other techniques are still out there that you haven't figured out yet! :)

Lately it has been raining here almost daily ...
Don't get me wrong ... i like it when it rains! But not all of the time, of course. I just wish that it will stop when my son goes to school; and then resumes when he gets back (from school). hehehe ... of course that's not going to happen.

I like it when it rains because everything isn't so dusty anymore, for one. The other reason ... well, i think it's great when it rains because the thirsty plants get to drink more than they need ...
and it's not so hot anymore!

Well, sometimes. ;P

Furnitures for my Friend

0 shared thoughts

Having just recently moved to another new house, a friend right now is on the lookout for a contemporary platform bed for herself. She will be needing platform beds for her sons, too (they told her their preference for having big beds for themselves). However, my friend is trying to convince them to have storage beds, instead. I heard all their arguments while I was in the kitchen, preparing myself a drink, and you should hear her sons' reasoning! Well, just imagine what teenagers can give as "viable" reasons! I'm not sure what the final verdict is going to be, but knowing my friend, they will find all sort it out.

When she asked me where she may be able to find quality furnitures online, I suggested she check out; they are said to be reliable, as well as having an extensive collection of furnitures, including leather dining chairs (she wanted to change the dining chairs that was left with the house). I'm sure that after they're done unpacking she'll check out the site; she's the kind of person who wants to have things done right away!

I'm glad that Paypal is now finally not just "send" here! I honestly believe that having the "send" feature isn't really that good for the country's economy ... all the money is leaving the country! But, I could be wrong. I am no economist, admittedly, so most probably they have a reason why it was so.

Now we can also "receive" and "withdraw" money from our paypal accounts! It still isn't really the "best", since after reading the instructions on how to withdraw the money ... we can only transfer the amount to our credit, debit, or prepaid accounts. Or transfer to a US based bank account. (Found out it's the same with Malaysia.) Hopefully, after some time we will be able to withdraw the money and transfer it to a local account. That would really be great!

But for now, we have to be satisfied with this great improvement ... and believe me, I am ecstatic about this (obviously)! :)

Feel It ...

Don't you just love it when romance is in the air and you know that you're in the thick of it? You can just feel your blood rushing and the excitement and expectation of something really wonderful to happen! However, that isn't always the case. So sorry to burst your bubble, but sometimes bad things happen, too.

I'm glad I found this site,, which not only offers a sample love letter, but also some articles about breaking up. Breaking up is never easy, and I have had the chance to actually witness one; a close friend breaking up with her husband. The site has some great advices about how to help a friend in a similar situation and believe me, it did help!

The site's really a gem for those who need inspiration ... and ideas on how to attract more love! Think you'd love to attract more love in your life right now? Then visit and be amazed at what some simple (but effective) advices can do for you! :)

Being human beings demands that we care about each other.

All of us love and hate but few of us understand.

Don't expect too much from love and the rewards will be immeasurable.

Find Quality Teak Wood Patio Furniture Here!

0 shared thoughts

Don't you just love it when you get the chance to eat outdoors together with your friends and family? Back when we used to live in the province, our neighbors were the type who really love to socialize, so at least once a week we go to each other's house (except ours, I'm afraid, since our house was the farthest) and either eat dinner or lunch (which will eventually be finished after dinner, lol) in one of our friend's houses. It was a wonderful way to catch up with each other's lives as well as see what new plants each other have. Yup, we loved gardening there; specially since we have such big front yards which desperately needed some plants and landscaping.

Sometimes we'd just laze around on their front yard and just relax; while sitting on a friend's teak chairs and commenting on their wonderful teak garden furniture, one lazy afternoon I suddenly made this decision to get myself some teak benches, too! Since I wasn't sure where they got their supply, I decided to browse the web and found this site:! has lots of product designs for you to choose from, and what I really like about them is that they get their source of quality teak wood from susatainable forests; making them one of the few furniture companies who are doing their part in lessening the impact of deforestation. So if you are looking for some good quality teak wood patio furnitures, check them out! Your garden won't only look good, you'd be helping save rainforests, too! :)

Looking for Debt Relief?

0 shared thoughts
We have a friend who got quite carried away with the idea of having "money to spend" using his credit cards (he had three) that he went on a spending spree; not intentionally, I think, but before he knew it, he had incurred a debt so huge that his account was frozen by the credit card companies. To get Debt Relief, he was forced to quit his existing job, go abroad, and get employed to another company that would provide him with a higher salary. Yes, it was that huge an amount. The good thing is that he did get debt relief, but he had to be away from his family for at least two years before his wife and kids could join him. What's wonderful now, though, is that they are debt free (credit card), and living together in another country. I'm glad our friend is now debt free, but not all are as lucky as him; some still continue to be tied to their debts.

Credit Card Consolidation is another way to get debt relief, but you should be careful in accepting another company's promise of a help. Be wary of companies that ask you to pay for high monthly fees for them to help you; or demand that you give them your credit card details before giving you free information about their services. It is best that you ask family and friends for opinions and ask for names of trusted companies.

ClearDebt Solution is one such company that is said to be reliable, and with their Clear Debt Solution™ method, they are said to have helped settle millions of dollars of unsecured debt for people who really needed their help. So if you are looking for debt relief, check them out. Or better yet, call them!

Travel Abroad

I have always wanted to travel to different places; and even if I still haven't tried international traveling yet, I enjoy discovering the nooks and crannies of my country, the Philippines. That doesn't mean I don't intend to travel abroad, of course. On the contrary, I think it would also be wonderful if I was given the chance to travel outside my country. Discovering new places to visit is such an enjoyable experience for me, and I want to soak in the different cultures and practices of each places that I visit. Even if that place is just another island away (we are composed of more than 7,100 islands), I know I will learn something interesting about it!

What if I was given a chance to travel to Russia? Gee, that would really be awesome! I just found out that there's this site called where you can have the chance to travel to Russia and enjoy the sights there. Really interesting! They can help with getting you a visa, too, as well as offering the best deal on tours since they have partnered with the best tour operators in Russia. Not only that, they also offer unique tours for younger travelers, like Vodka and Ice, Young Russia, and others.

So do you feel like being adventurous in your tavels? Check out and experience staying in a country that is so different from yours, and I'm sure it will be as memorable as ever!

Setting up a Company

1 shared thoughts
Want to start a new business? I am sure that most of us would want to own and start our own business; something that will help us gain financial freedom as well as have something which we are truly in control of, like our own corporation. But the choices and decisions needed to set up a company can be quite daunting for some. I know I don't know much about the system to set up my own company, so it is great that there is such a site that can help me with starting a business: Nevada corps.

There are a lot of legal papers that one needs to read and understand before fully setting up a company, and good thing Nevada Corporation is there to help. They will help with all the paperwork needed to set up a company (whether it be a corporation, or an LLC) for you at a very affordable price. Since Nevada is very business friendly (no personal state taxes, no corporate state taxes, no state franchise tax, and minimum bureaucracy), they have an office there, (Las Vegas). But they can also set up your business for you in other states, like in Texas, and Florida.

So are you stumped about wanting to start your own business but doesn't know how? Then check out and see how they may be able to help. International orders are welcome, since you won't be needing a US address or be a US citizen or resident to set up a Nevada corporation. Call now!

Forex Club

0 shared thoughts
I have always been interested about Forex and how the global currencies fluctuate against one another. Living in a third world country, I can't help but notice how at one time the value of our currency is quite low compared to the dollar, and then after a couple of days (or weeks) later it will be at an all time high! Really a big mystery for most folks, but good thing that now there is a site where you will be able to learn all about the Forex and why it acts that way. The site to go to for your Forex education is at Forex Club. It is also one of the leading brokers in the world.

Here at this site you will be able to do some forex training as well as learn about forex trading, online currency trading, and all about the forex market. Personally, for someone that isn't that well versed about the forex trading system, it is of utmost importance to learn more about forex behavior and what influences it. Obviously, it is not just one factor, but a whole lot of factors including political events, as well as economic developments and investor attitude. Online video seminars and reading materials are available at the site, including a practice account, trading forum, and trader contests.

So for those who are truly interested about learning and trading at the forex market, this is the site to visit; where you can sign-up to open your new account.This might not be suitable for all investors, though, since a substantial risk of loss will be involved, but for one who's passionate about it, this is the place to be!

Soccer time ...

0 shared thoughts
Our son fell in love with playing soccer when he befriended a batchmate and an upper grader that was a member of his school's team. They then played almost every Thursday (since that was their PE day) and usually upon returning home he'd be in really high spirits. He would then proceed to tell me about his day and the way he and his friends played soccer that day. Nope, he is not a member at their school team, since their practice field is quite far from the house and his school bus can't take him there. Maybe when he's older; thankfully he understands the situation and does not resort to having tantrums when we told him about the situation.

Soccer Goals and other soccer sports accessories are not really common around here, and so I'm glad that you can order them online. I'm not sure where their school gets their soccer goals, but I noticed that they are portable. So I'm guessing that they get their supplies from is really a great site for kids who enjoy playing soccer, even if while only on their backyard. The goals are portable and really fit for the kids who enjoy practicing even while not at school. They are even the official supplier of the top backyard portable soccer goals at discount prices. Really a great site that's easy to browse through. I'm positive that once my son gets older and applies for his school's soccer team, we will be looking into some of their products, and maybe even possibly order from them online.

Credit Cards

0 shared thoughts

I normally don't use my credit card every time we go shopping, so that's why I feel so uncomfortable using it. I really do prefer cash; and that's where hubby and I differ. He like using cash while buying things, too, but when the amount is a bit high, he prefers using the card. I guess that makes sense.

The credit cards over at The Cooperative Bank in UK have an 11.9% APR (annual percentage rate) for their clear credit as well as their flat rate platinum card. The difference between the two is that the clear credit cards will be giving you up to 59 days interest free credit if balance is paid in full by the due date, while the flat rate platinum card will give you up to 46 days interest free credit if balance is also paid in full by the due date. An interesting bonus to the cards is that every time a client uses £100 (through his clear credit card), the amount of 1.25p will be given/donated to charity. That's really wonderful!

Please take note, though, that details are accurate at date of publishing. So to be sure, check out their site and see for yourself what treats are available for you! :)

Josh Groban: February Song

0 shared thoughts

Heard that Josh Groban will have his concert here ... awesome!
Unfortunately, am not so sure if I will be able to watch it ... too expensive! And am so sure it's going to be at night (who ever heard of a concert in the morning?! well, unless it's outside, and not inside a big building ... or maybe there is such a thing? hehehe), so that rules out the possibility of me watching it. why? you might ask (just might). well, it's because there will be no one to watch over our son while hubby and I go and watch the concert! Unless, of course, if our son wants to watch it, too ... lol.

For now, I have to be content watching videos like this .... just love his voice!

Annabel Lee (by EAP)

0 shared thoughts
Annabel Lee

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

I have always been fascinated by EAP's (Edgar Allan Poe) works. Reading this poem again, after so many years, i have come to understand it more. Or maybe i was just lazy the first time i read it. LoL ... :D

Friend and her Furnitures

0 shared thoughts

Do you think that you need a new living room furniture, like a reclining couch sofa love seat? Or how about a new dining room furniture set? Finding a good furniture store online can be quite daunting; just imagine the thousands (if not millions!) of furniture stores that you can find while browsing through the internet! Some simply aren't just what you are looking for, while others are offering furnitures at such exorbitant prices. Good thing there's this site that's said to offer quality furnitures at just the right price:!
A friend just moved abroad together with her two kids recently; having stayed there previously for two years alone (she was taking her masteral studies in one of the universities), her house then was good for just one person only. But now that her two kids are with her (she is taking her doctorate studies this time), she decided to transfer to a new house and get new furnitures, like new beds for her sons. Since her dining table is no longer appropriate, I mentioned to her that also has a great collection of dining room furniture sets. She told me she'd check them out, when she has the time this weekend. For now she's really busy with her studies and taking care of her kids.

Being busy with researching and school assignments, she also brings her school work at home sometimes, and she commented that she needs a good home office furniture for herself. Being a stay-at-home-mom, I can very well relate to her about having a private space for herself while at home. I honestly believe that she will find the furnitures over at to her liking; and what's great about the site is that they deliver nationwide for free! That's really convenient!

For now they have to make do with what they have, but I'm pretty sure that soon she and her sons will get the furnitures that they have always wanted; and it's from! :)

My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?
Erma Bombeck

I really had a good laugh reading this ...
I guess more or less that's my principle lately, too ... I know my mother will be horrified, she being so meticulous when it comes to cleanliness. The dust around here is amazing ... they stick! Or maybe I just need to really dust them off more than the usual ... like every other day? hehehe.

Obviously, I don't like dusting ... and sweeping ... and (yeah, the list could go on and on). But that's life .. so take it, or leave it, huh?!

Tattoo Lovers Community

0 shared thoughts

Honestly, I have never heard of until now; I know there are available tattoo singles everywhere (I even personally know someone who has gone through the painful process of having a tattoo placed on his body), but finding about this online site where tattoo dating is possible, caught me by surprise.

Their site is fairly easy to browse through, and what's great about it is that you can see the pictures of the members on the home page right away. So you can more or less pick which person you think is more interesting than the others; or you feel has the same interests as you. Im pretty sure that if you're proud of your tattoos and you want to show them off, this is the site for you! So go and check them out!

Writing Services

Gone are the days when my friends and I (and even hubby, since we were classmates in some of our classes at the university), used to stay up late at night just to finish a term paper or an essay given by one of our professors, which had to be submitted the next day! Not a very pleasant situation (cramming, yes ...) but definitely a reality. I remember those days well with fondness. It might not have been a happy situation that time, but thinking back, those days were one of the best times I've had.

These days, though, the students have it easy: is there to help them with their paper works! They do custom writing for students who want their papers done on the spot; college essays, and even MBA essays, can be handled by their skilled writers together with over 200 writers working remotely. They are against plagiarism, that's why their work will always be accurately cited together with a reference page. What's great about this is that privacy is guaranteed to be 100%, and if you are not satisfied, they also have a money back guarantee. I believe that that's fair enough.

So think you need help with your papers? Don't hesitate: check out; they will always be there to lend a helping hand!

Pier and Ships

0 shared thoughts
Living in a country composed of more than 7,000 islands, you can be sure that the boat is a usual means of transportation around here. I remember when I was younger that we used to go to the pier, together with my Papa and brothers and sisters, and watch the big boats (they did look real big to me, back then) being docked. I still remember the sea air, and the people, who worked there, carrying heavy loads. It was a peaceful sight. The pier does get busy at times, specially when a boat arrives, or leaves.

Boat insurance is important to protect the business, of course. I'm just not sure where they got theirs; but there's this site,, which can supply a comprehensive boat insurance policy and low cost third party liability options. There's no need to complete any complicated forms; you apply online, and they are sure to respond within 24 hours. That's really fast!

Anybody out there who has a boat and needs insurance? Check out and experience a painless and quick quote process for your precious craft!

As for me, together with my Papa and siblings, we are content just looking at the ships docked on the pier and watch the activities going on. It feels great knowing that till now the pier is still there, though some ships might have changed and there is more traffic now. But that's life. It is ever changing, they say. :)

Terry's Fabrics

You're tired, you had a long day, and to top it all, you found out that you forgot to pay your electric bill that was due earlier that day! Just not your day, huh?! But would it be wonderful if you could just lie down on your own bed and feel the softness and comfort after a long tired day? I would certainly welcome that!

But not all fabric are the same, so sometimes when it just so happens that my bed linen that day wasn't my favorite, I wouldn't feel as comfy. Know where you can find terrific beddings at great prices? Where else but at! They have the greatest duvet covers and bedspreads available online. I just love their quilted bedspreads, so luxurious!

So if you want to go home and get a good night's sleep, make sure you've got on your bed the fabric that you bought from Terry's Fabrics; it shouldn't be any less. :)

Don't you just love books? I do, and I know a lot of bloggers who love feel the same way, too! When I was still in college, my sisters and I usually frequented the bookstore located just one jeepney ride away from our house. We used to browse through the books after we did our shopping. Usually we'd go home with a pocketbook or two.

Now we don't have as much time to go shopping together (and buy books at our favorite bookstore); but usually when hubby and I have the time, we visit the bookstore. We just love the feeling of being surrounded by all those books and the treasures contained in each and every one of them!

Payday Loans

0 shared thoughts

I'm sure that one time or another, you (or a friend, family member, or a relative) needed some cash, and you had absolutely nothing with you (or maybe just a bit; not much for what you wanted). That has happened to hubby and I when we wanted to buy some plane tickets and we underestimated the amount. Good thing my sister was with us, and she gladly loaned us the money. We were pretty lucky since my sister was around, but for those who need cash and absolutely have nobody to turn to, you can get cash advance over at!

The site is has a list of online lenders where you may be able to get cash advance ranging from $100 - $1500. One of the advantages of applying for an online loan is that it can be done securely and anonymously at home; once approved, the amount can be sent via wire to the applicant's savings or checking account the next day.

So if you need cash advance and decide to apply online, check out and view their recommended list of online lenders; you'll have lots to choose from!

I really like this quote by Walt Disney .... everybody knows Walt Disney, I'm sure! Oh well, maybe not ALL. lol
We have this dream inside of us and I believe that what's keeping us from achieving it is the actual first step in pursuing our dream; having the courage to start ... The fear of failure is another factor that keeps us far away from pursuing our dreams, too ...

but you know ... somewhere inside each and everyone of us is something that helps us keep going ... and i believe that it is hope. :)

Custom Essays and Dissertation at

Some of my college classmates and friends used to complain a lot everytime we were assigned to write essays or research papers. Sometimes while researching at the library I'd still hear them complain and what happens usually is that their papers don't come out as good as they wanted it to be. If only they'd have known about!

Dissertation, essays, research papers, term papers, and thesis writing are just some of the services that is offering. You can be assured that the results you'll be getting from them will be just what you want; in fact, their writers will be in constant contact with you while your paper is in progress just so you will know how things are coming along.

A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
Mark Twain

that is definitely true ...
i guess it's because lies are more dramatic and sometimes people tend to believe what they want to believe in, even if deep down they doubt if it is the truth, or not. Sometimes we just have to trust what we feel, deep down.

or just don't listen to gossip.
difficult, huh?! it's everywhere! lol

Seniors Community on the Internet

0 shared thoughts

Just because you are considered a senior in the community doesn't mean you are no longer entitled to having fun! In fact, I believe that they should have the most fun that they can possibly take since it is about time that they harvest the fruits of their labour, so to speak. That's why I find this site,, really interesting.

At you'll find other senior personals who most probably have the same life experiences as you might have; except of course, with different life perspectives. It would be interesting to find how another individual coped with similar situations; and I am sure you will get to learn a lot from the other person, too!

Once you successfully sign-up at, you will be able to view the other member's photos and profile, and from there you can see which person interests you the most. Senior dating is definitely possible.

So if you think that you will have fun meeting other senior members of the community, head on over to and see what's happening on their site! You might be surprised how much fun being a senior citizen can still be. :)

Karl's Blog

0 shared thoughts
Are you like me who has this habit of browsing through the internet looking for other blogs to read? I recently found out about Karl's blog, a blog written by writer and entrepreneur, Karl Moore.

Karl's blog is a place where he posts inspirational messages and trust me, they are worth the time and the read. I really liked his September 18th post, "They're Just Words", wherein he tells about this book that he read a year ago, by lawyer Gerry Spence. The words that really got me at that post was this: "Arguing with someone close to you isn't about winning. It's about restoring that emotional balance." How so true!

He also posts "Random Acts of Kindness" on Mondays and on Fridays he posts "Friday Factoid". If you want to look for some interesting reads on the internet, do visit his blog. I tell you, it is worth the visit! :)

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me".

Erma Bombeck

I really like this one! I hope it won't be misinterpreted by some.
I find Erma Bombeck's witty remarks cynical, at times. But that's fine by me ... besides, I wouldn't have it any other way!

No way! ;)

Some may say that they don't need advertising, but I believe there are different ways to have your business advertised (subtle and blatant ways), and help you get those valuable clients. If you don't like to advertise blatantly, you can always trust your loyal customers to help you on that area, for free; specially if they really liked the service that you constantly provide for them.

People always ask me, 'Were you funny as a child?' Well, no, I was an accountant.
Ellen DeGeneres
I have had the time to watch some of her talk-show episodes, and I like it. Sometimes it keeps me glued to the telly when in fact I should be doing housework. hahaha. I just like the way how she talks on about one thing and then immediately shifts to another topic. Seamlessly. Cool.

Funny dance, too. hehehe. Still, I like it how it comes out on tv. ;P

Meeting people online is relatively easy, as long as you interact with them; or you can always advertise. Meeting others who share the same ideas and views like you is exciting and fulfilling. It is kind of similar to meeting somebody personally, though not quite, of course. You can't see the other person's face (unless a webcam is utilized), but you can more or less determine the kind of person the other one is by the way they answer your questions. There are lots of possible friends out there in the internet, but it's important to be cautious and not give complete strangers your actual address, phone number, or even your name.

It's basically the same if you are involved in home-based business or online business networking. You can join sites where you know your business will thrive, but there are always risks involved. Just always remember to be cautious, but be open to lots of possibilities; anything can happen. is one such site where you can meet other site owners who have businesses of their own. It is similar to other social sites, but this site has a business twist to it; you can even get paid if you promote their site! Being around since 1999, their site currently has 65K+ members. Impressive! So if you have a business of your own and you feel like promoting your home-based business, check out; registration is free! You'll have nothing to lose just by checking them out, but hopefully, much to gain. :)
