Great Tools During Emergency

>> 2/28/2009

We know how important it is to be safe in a place wherever we go. We must be aware of different signs that we see on different places. Be it on the hospital, school, office, municipal hall, malls. It serves as a guide for us to find the right direction we are going. I remember one time when we were at the office and I was at the stairs when the electricity was cut-off due to a brown out. I almost stumble on my way down since our emergency lights did not function.

I immediately raised the issue to the building administrator, I told them that they must be able to maintain the emergency lighting most especially during some emergency cases and unavoidable circumstances for it is their duty and responsibility to keep people safe and away from harm in these situations, accidents can be avoided if we are prepared enough by using these tools.

Other companies are too careful that they even have a braille exit signs, this I think is a great new idea and very innovative for we rarely see this kind if signs. This are nice idea since blind people are given an equal opportunity just like ours. I hope others will follow and implement it too.


Saturday Update

Good thing that I was done with household chores and two kids are now on their afternoon nap, what else do I have now but my "me" time! LOL. It is hot outside, summer time is really here. I am now on planning stage since my two kids birthday are fast approaching. Gabby will be turning 5 this coming April and Nicco will be 3 on May! I am thinking of having a joint celebration since we are on a tight budget. A swimming pary will be a great celebration I think. But it will just be held at the comfort of our home since we have this extra large swimming pool that can carry a 6 people all at the same time. It was bought by Ian's late Dad, two years ago. Kids will surely had a blast. will just think o the menu to have and everythings set. It is a great idea since it summer and I think will not cost too much.

I almost forgot, I ordered this items online since last week but hasn't arrived yet. I wonder what happened to my orders. hope to receive this early next week.


Good Memories Last

Last two weeks ago, I was busy cleaning our room and have found this plenty of VHS tape in a box in one of our cabinets. I browsed each one and was surprised that it did have special occasions that my hubby's family celebrated since he was young. I immediately took the tapes out so that I can watch it with the kids and let them see how did their daddy look when he was their age. But I almost forgot that we don't have a VHS player anymore. Maybe it was the reason why hubby did keep this tapes.

We have a combo player given by my FIL but wasn't working properly as I tried it. I told the husband that I am going to find somebody who can do the VHS to DVD conversion, He gladly liked the idea and gave me a go signal for it. These tapes holds the special memories that they have most especially now that both of his parents are already in the care of our dear Lord in heaven. Isn't it nice to cherish memories especially the happy ones once in awhile?!

Another thing is that the kids are so giddy excited to watch their Dad's 7th birthday celebration that we saw in one of the tapes. It's a good thing that we are so modernized now that converting vhs to dvd tapes are special way to preserve ones great memories. But we know how fast paced the technology is that we have to catch up with the upgrades on our gadgets that we have, like having VHS to Blu-Ray conversion which I think is much better since we can store more data than the DVD. It nice to know that we have this special technology that we can depend on.


I can't concentrate

>> 2/26/2009

I have been like this for about 3 days now. It really feels awful especially when I'm in public places. People are giving me this strange look. But I couldn't help it. Blame it to being in an air conditioned room for 8 hours here at the office then super init paglabas naman! haay, hope to get over this!

Hurry up and join in the fun! :)



It was such a boring moments we have this past few days here at the office. My eyes are often tired by browsing different sites just to kill the time. We have really felt the slow down of orders from our customers. Good thing that I have activities that I can do online such as blogging wherein I can earn on aside from my regular work here. But there are times that I feel guilty too since I am using my work time to do personal stuffs online. I have so many plans but accomplished nothing. I am such a procrastinator!!! But I am now more determine in pursuing it, since I don't want to end up empty handed and regret in the end. I remember my professor in Humanities when I was in college, he kept on reminding us this quote...

" If you want to do something, do it now!!! not later not tomorrow! as in NOW!"

A Perfect Host

I remember before when I was just starting to blog, I only had a limited knowledge about this blogging thingy. But as time goes by, withe the help of my so called "online friends" I get the hang of it. There are many factors to consider once you aim to penetrate and get a position on the SEO thing, you need to find a host that is reputable and trust worthy and have the best web hosting services. Other gives promises that they couldn't keep that led customers to dismay. I think web hosting geek is different among the rest for they could really live up to their words according to some users and reviews that I've read. You can even check their blog here and see for yourself. :)

Zenni on NYT!

I knew that my plans of buying a new eyeglasses has been long overdue, holidays are over yet there are still lots of expenses to take care of hence the reason for setting it up aside. Now that we are on economic recession, we must find ways on how to budget our money wisely. Eyeglasses offered at a near local score is kinda pricey so I am still in search for some cheap yet quality ones.

I was browsing the net awhile ago and saw Zenni Optical in the New York Times?!, the article was very timely and helpful as well most especially during this season wherein everybody was finding ways on how to make ends meet. This also mean that I can now pursue my plan to Seeing Straight Without Breaking Bank as we really need to be extra careful as to money matters. Seeing a wide variety of choices on colors, frames and designs I knew that I am on the right track budget wise. They are offering Prescription eyeglasses for only $8! I know not even local stores here could beat the price as low as that. Not to mention that their products are of the same quality and I think as competent as those signature brands that are offered here.

Today is my Special Day!

>> 2/11/2009

So I am now officially 31 years old! and oh yes, today is the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes! so no need to elaborate on why I am named by my parent Lourdes. Though I won't be having any birthday celebration today and just because I didn't take a leave from work. There are so many things to be thankful for to our almighty creator up there.

This is far more important than material gifts that you have given all throughout my life and I:

Thank you for the 31 years of my existence in this world, hope to live for another 31 years.
Thank you for all the blessings that you have bestowed on me and most especially to my family
Thank you for the good health
Thank you for the gifts that you have given me~ Gabby and Nicco
Thank you because you never failed to answer all my prayers.
I am still thankful that I have my job since many have lost theirs.
I am thankful that both of my parents are still with us. I feel for others who long for a parents guidance and love.

Thanks for letting me feel that I am always loved by you!
