Plasma Lifts

My friend just got a new flat TV from her bonuses and she is considering buying plasma lifts to hide and protect her newly bought TV. They make you enjoy the ease and elegance of self-raising and self-lowering console TV lifts making flat panel TV hidden inside the console when it is not in use just at the touch of a button, a built in plug n' play, infra-red control raises your television from behind closed doors with quiet, elegant ease. You can get such quality TV lifts from Import Advantage. Great if you own one isn't it!

Making A Difference

The year will end today and it's always important that we look back and see what we have done to make a difference in saving our environment. Well there is this one site called GreenandMore.com which has a lot of eco-friendly products called green products which are made from chemical free or recycled materials free and are sustainable. They follow green practices which are their company's mission and that means using no plasticware, they recycle office supplies and kitchen goods as well as use 100% recycled cardboard boxes.

They are also supporting environmental charities like the Oceana and Healthy Child Healthy World.
They also have a green learning center which has top information from sources like the EPA and US Dept. of Energy. They also have many shopping departments which you should check out before shopping as they can have what they call less impact on our planet - such as their eco furniture, solar power products, home improvement, home decor, eco garden, outdoor living, energy saving appliances for your home, air, lighting, cleaning, gadgets, water conservation, baby, beddings, and accessories such as hand bags. One thing more is that you should try to check on their Green Musings blog shared by their staff and community where there are green stories that you can read and some photos to check out for.

Goldilocks Butter Macaroons

I bought this Goldilocks Butter Macaroons again since my sisters liked it when I bought some during CT's 11th month birthday. It costs P65 per pack and I think it's already worth your money. But I guess these ones we bought do not taste as good as the first ones we bought. Anyway, we were able to consume one pack just today just having a chat while eating it. I was worried that it will spoil or expire since the last brownies we bought at Goldilocks expired and was not consumed.

Learning to Invest

I met my old friend and classmate in HS a few days ago. She just got back here for a short vacation. We were able to chat for awhile and she mentioned that she has learned to invest her earnings abroad through buying and selling real estate. She also mentioned that she has a friend who has North Carolina land for sale and was asking her to sell it. She has been to the place before and she found it nice. She is planning to invest next year when she has settled the financial matters of her family here.

Hershey's and Reese's Moisturising Lip Balms


I found these two delicious Hershey's and Reese's moisturising lip balms being sold online by a friend. I would love to have these two for myself this Christmas but I guess it won't really be necessary items. Anyway, if my hubby would buy them for me as a Christmas gift, I would surely be hungry rather happy to accept them!

Another Option

While one of my hubby's clients are into upgrading their network infrastructure into a compatible Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure, Cat6 was brought into the discussion between the two of us because Cat 6 or Category 6 Ethernet cables are also compatible with both Category 3 and 5 with GigaBit Ethernet as the cable standard and CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, which is the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.

Cisco Routers

It was 6 years ago that my hubby worked in an Internet Service Provider as a Network administrator for almost 2 years. I can recall that he always mentioned to me about Redhat linux server, Windows 2000 server, dialup connections, Dsl line and other ISP terms that I can not understand because I am not a technical person. Also, he told me that they are selling used cisco routers for a cheap price because they are upgrading to a more rubost cisco routers. In our office, we use other router brand though.

Choosing a Christmas Gift

It is 17 days to go before we celebrate Christmas and I am still contemplating on what to buy for a Christmas gift for my dad. I think it is time to buy him a new watch. I have seen a very impressive and famous luxury Patek Philippe watch online. It is made by Swiss watchmakers and are among the most remarkable watches in the world. I know they are very elegant. I hope I can buy him one just in time for Christmas.

Invest in Land Property

I was thinking of short term plans with our earnings but lately, in the office we have been talking about what we have invested in house and for some of us who have already made a land investment. Most people I have met especially those successful ones and earning a lot do invest in land as experts in real estate would always tell us that buying land and lots is a very good opportunity if you are looking for profit and a good investment since it always appreciates and rarely or never depreciates. I still have to save some more and hopefully will own a good land investment later on.

Long Day

Well it has been a long day today. It will be another busy day at work tomorrow. Hopefully I would be able to finally finish tasks given to me. I hope the agencies I have to deal with would not give me any more problems as they are those that I do not wnt t deal with in the first place but I have no choice since those concerned before was not able to fix it. Good night for now as I am off to sleep. Take care friends and see you again tomorrow.

Kopi Roti

My hubby and I went to a coffee shop which we have never been to before. To end our curiosity about the place and their so-called famous and delicious Kopi bun, we decided to give it a visit one night. We brought our lappy thinking that they may have free wifi but unfortunately they do not have it. I ordered milk with tea since it would be the first time that I get to drink that. Well definitely not my cup of tea since I like my tea sweet. Yup I put sugar on my tea unless I want something hot and that would clean me up, then I would go for tea without sugar. Well for more of this just click on the photo. See you there!

Getting Your Cash Back

Two of the people in our office are getting new credit cards. One time I answered a call from the agent and was encouraging me to get one for myself. I had to decline this as I still have to Compare Cash Back Credit Cards. When I asked my brother who works in a bank, he said that if I want I can try to check on CreditCardSearchEngine.com if I am looking for an online credit card comparison. I am really tempted sometimes to tell my hubby to get one especially now that our financial needs are growing with prices of everything in the market going up way faster than our salary. Well I still have to search and compare if ever we decide to apply for either Citibank, Visa or MasterCard before I apply for any type of credit card offers which they do have also including everything from low interest and reward card to cards for people with bad to average credit. They also have other leading credit cards like American Express and Discover Card as well Bank of America and J.P. Morgan Chase. Getting a credit card entails a major responsibility when it comes to our finances.

Wordless Wednesday

Yes another wedding cake I am featuring for today. This time it is a white fondant wedding cake display from All About Cakes. This was taken a few months ago during their participation in one of the wedding exhibits in SM City. It would surely cost a couple a lot but if you want to make your wedding more special then you can have a wedding cake like this. But if you are on a budget then you can always design your own and talk it over your cake designer.

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Myspace Glitter Graphics

I wanna greet everyone a Merry Christmas!!!

It is the 5th of December and for the past few days I could feel the cold breeze especially in the morning and the spirit of Christmas in the air. I know everyone has concerns whether it be with their home or with work but we got to give time for ourselves to enjoy and feel Christmas. No one is too old to enjoy Christmas like an innocent child. Sometimes when I feel tired in the office, I get out of our office or walk to our window especially when it's already dark outside and view the big Christmas tree of lights in the mall near us. Just staring at it makes me forget for awhile the worries and concerns in life. I hope everyone of us gets to have a meaningful and merry, merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Vacation

My sister was here last night and I arrived home while she was talking to my mother about her friend's fiance Alfredo, a foreigner actually who is of Spanish descent. They were planning to travel and have a long and relaxing Christmas vacation together. Before they have a hard time trying to book a hotel because he speaks mostly Spanish and not really that fluent yet with English. But it is easier now when booking for Vacaciones Hoteles with hotels.com online or on the phone especially for Spanish-speaking vacationers like Alfredo and at the same time they will find the best price for a good hotel room accommodation. It is good news indeed for Spanish-speaking travelers who could hardly converse in fluent English. Lucky for those who can but it would still make the booking process easier when travelers can speak in their native tongue. Their site hotels.com en espanol (http://espanol.hotels.com) and dedicated customer service center (800-316-4145) can be accessed by Spanish speaking travelers especially those in the United States.
