Am I Fit?

You're Pretty Fit

You are fitter than most people but likely not as fit as you want to be.

You do your best to work out, but you probably don't do it as much as you like.

Maybe you need to do mini-workouts throughout the day to fit in exercise.

Or maybe you need a whole new activity to motivate you. No matter what, you should get moving!


Signs To Follow

There are many signs everywhere that serves as guide for us in doing things, it serves as reminders for us to find better ways and directions whenever we are face in doubts on where to go. Just imagine places with no signs at all, more importantly in public places where we are not familiar with, confusions and clouds of doubt will definitely be among our fears.

Among the many signs that we saw every day are the signage of advertisements, traffic signs on highways and pedestrians, arrows and EXIT SIGNS. The latter one is very important during cases of emergencies like earthquake and fire cases, usually our minds during these situations are in panic and couldn't think straight enough to arrive at a certain decision, but if we clearly see those exit signs our brain recognizes at once and send the message immediately to our body telling us where to go. So it is very much needed and should be place on areas where it is needed and should be very visible for us to see it at once.

Public places such as movie houses, offices(private and government ones), malls, parks, schools, museums should have the necessary Exit Sign in order to keep the place safe and away from harm during emergency situation, there are many cases that happened wherein because on non observance of these signage have put many lives on into risks, years ago a fire breakout in one of the disco pubs along the entertainment area along the metro and during the investigation made, the establishments failed to put up the very essential exit sign which led the people to confusion on where to go during the fire breakout. They have learned their lessons the hard way, only if they have followed the rules, such traumatic experiences will not happen, precautions should always be taken to avoid bad things to happen.

School Days are Here Again

On Monday will be the opening of school year 2009-2010 class for most of the students, some of them will be on the second week, my daughter is pretty excited already as she turns Kinder Senior this time.

As we were watching news last night, they had featured those boarding houses located at the University belt wherein authorities are checking the safety of the building premises and if their fire exits are properly maintained, too bad that a lot of them failed to pass the standards in putting up their exit signs. Most of the places they visited are too narrow and is not conducive for students to lodge.

EXIT SIGNS are very important during emergency cases so that people could easily find the way out and secure themselves out of fire or some danger that are risky for ones safety. exit sign should be properly place and should pass quality standard in accordance to law, it is definitely essential for them to follow it so as not to be sorry in the end. We should never put the student's lives into risk by being neglectful and fulfilling our duties and responsibilities as their landlords.

On Shifting Career

>> 5/28/2009

During this very trying times, finding a job is really quite a stress. My brother has stopped going to school due to a financial problem, and decided to find a job but he could not find one appropriate for the course that he took up which is Information Technology. The global economic recession really took part in the massive layoff of many companies to their employees, even stable companies have been threatened by these situation. And so this made it really hard for my brother in his search for a job, he is now contemplating on taking a short course on a technical school with the likes of electrician school Pittsburgh.

For my mom still can not afford the high rocketing price of his previous course's tuition fee and other miscellaneous fee. So his decision to take up and enroll in a technical school would definitely be a wise decision and more practical, as we all know that there is a great opportunities for those who went to these school and their skills are really sharpen. electrician careers are widely in demand nowadays especially abroad, that's why a lot of our skilled workers here are very thankful for many opportunities for them to prove and be able to work in a different environment outside the country, wherein their salaries there is really worth the sacrifice.

My brother just couldn't wait to get hold of his electrician certification and try his luck abroad too. But for the mean time, we need to find a good technical school like the Rosedale Technical Institute where they offer personal assistance in applying for Financial Aid when you’re ready to begin and with Job Placement services when you’re ready to graduate. This I think is very helpful and promising to its students, and they have an equal opportunity educational institution and admits students to all programs and facilities without regard to color, race, religion, sex, national, origin, age or handicap.


Ecotools Brushes and NYX Loot

I just couldn't wait to get hold of these brushes that I purchased at Makeup Masala.

Next in line would be the 6 piece brush set plus the retractable kabuki brush.

Fashionable Athletic Shoes

I am falling in love with mineral make ups lately, just so the feeling of wanted to collect every MMU brushes I saw online is really hard to resist. Hubby has been warning me since he knew that I can't use all of those brushes that I kept ordering online. Oh well I just love collecting those even if I am not a make up artist. I guess every woman feels the same, either with bags or clothes right?! But come to think of it, hubby's also into having too many rubber shoes on our shoe rack, I only got four pairs of shoes. 2 pieces for office and formal occasion and 2 sandals, I even don't have a rubber shoes. But hubby got 20 pairs of his and so I told him that hey, you can't even wear all your rubber shoes at the same time. lol! His favorite among the rubbers he got is the Adidas shoes, he's not that athletic type though he plays basketball and would wear one of his athletic shoes that according to him is ultra comfy to wear and very light on his feet which makes it comfortable for him as he plays the basketball. Come weekend, we'll be heading to mall and DH will surely be looking for some discount shoes to add up to his collections.


Nicco's 3rd Birthday: May 24, 2009

The procrastinator in me strikes again, and so the delay in post of Nicco's bday celebration pics was shelved again for a couple of days. Or was it because I was under the weather these past few days that makes me lazy to make some personal posts. Oh well, excuses! excuses! heee... We had Nicco celebrated his birthday in advanced last Saturday since somebody will used our place in celebration of a child's christening on Nicco's birthday itself on Sunday.

Nicco@ 3 can now fully express himself the way he speaks, words are now fully understandable. He is more affectionate on his feelings and can do things as instructed, can do simple errands and are now more choosy on clothes that he wants to wear. Now plays and talks to his toys as if they were real and often regard his toys as his "mga anak".Would often paly as Super heroes with a scarf as a cape on his back and would tell us the he is Superman or Zorro.

Nicco's Mocha Cake!
Menu includes Pata tim, Chicken Barbecue, Siomai, Inihaw na Bangus, Tokwa't Baboy (Fried Tofu and Pork) Ice cream c/o Vhong and Dha. Noticed that menus are mostly for adults it since we just invited my sister and some friends, my kuya and Nanay didn't make it and the only kid is his cousin Dwayne.

On Medical Needs

>> 5/20/2009

It's quite stressful whenever a love ones got sick or hospitalized, for there are many factors that you need to go through the process. There are times when you just don't know what to do anymore. It's not easy dealing with the situation, for you need to have a strong faith and must be able to have the courage to do things for the sake of love and respect. Financial aspect is another thing you need to deal with, for being sick entails you with so many expenses such as medical supplies such as syringes, medicines, strips, adult diapers, bp monitors and even gloves, cottons plus many others, aside from the high rated bills that you need to pay for your stay in the hospital. All of this are part of what you need to go through and everybody else will does in the not so distant future. So we must be prepared emotionally, physically, spiritually and the hardest part is the financial aspect.


When It Rains It Pours!

... and I have experienced it all yesterday, all but misfortunes that is! I just hope that it won't happen again or I'll really loose my senses. First, I wasn't able to grab opps online, and so it means less earning for me. Second, the money that I have long been waiting for might not get into my hands again, before it got reversed and now it seems like slipping again from me. What actually happened is that I asked a favor from my office mate if I could transfer my paypal funds to her account and I'm glad she was very kind to accommodate my request. It took a week to reflect on her account, come yesterday after office hours, she withdrawn the money in a nearby atm machine and I waited outside the atm booth, but to my surprise she told me that the money was eaten up by the atm machine. She immediately filed a complaint and the bank officer told her that it would took 2 days to reflect on her account again. There is nothing we could do but wait, just this morning she told me that the atm got lost, she couldn't remember how it happened. Can you see how unlucky I am?! I don't blame her for what happened because I know that nobody wants to engage in a complicated situation. And I was the one who asked the favor from her. She have already reported it and will file a request for a new card and will have to withdraw the money over the counter tomorrow. *crossing my fingers" hope that tomorrow everything will turn out fine. I badly need the money eh.

Online Biz For Me

>> 5/13/2009

I have actually been contemplating on putting up my online store months ago but my being employed in a company, with an 8-5 work schedule and having a 5 and so0n to be 3 years old kids are keeping me off from the idea for awhile. But with blooming expenses here and there, our earnings are not sufficient to make ends meet. Though I am really thankful to paid blogging for it really is big help for us, we still need an extra income. The little boy will be going to a nursery class next year and little girl would be in grade school by then. We really need to take risks and save up for the future as well. We're positive that even though we are in crisis, we would still survive.

It's a good thing as well that I didn't get any credit cards before though I almost gave in while everybody else are insisting me that I should get get one, and now I am stress free from being bugged by those Collection Agency, in which my friends are now too sorry for getting themselves one. Oh well, having credit cards should be spent wisely and are to dealt with appropriately.

>> 5/12/2009

"Time is Gold" as the old saying goes. There are different devices used by ancient people in determining time. . The shadow clock was the first device able to measure the individual hours of a day. It relies on the sun, and so were useless at night and in cloudy weather. Then the water clock and candle clock and lists goes on and on. The only thing that reminded me of an old clock is the hour glass. lol! which until now are widely used just like in playing games, mostly boardgames. As time goes by along with the changes and development that goes with it, there are few good inventions and new concepts that emerge in the proper identification of the time.

Until such wrist watches came to be known, which has been popular and became very useful during the World War I. Today, different kinds of watches pops out in the market, it varies from different types according to its use, class, colors, brands, shapes, depending on the occasion and it even goes out as collectors items for some, who are really passionate in collecting watch like the rotary watches. Now, watch are not just considered as a necessity for time awareness. Many have also taken this as a fashion and jewelry accessory already. Some do even have to change their watch everyday depending on their mood and should match and goes well with their outfit. I think rotary watches, especially the classic ones goes well for a formal and corporate occasion because of its elegant look. While the limited Edition collections of ROTARY WATCHES is definitely an eye catcher for those who have keen eyes for collectors item. You could find tons of them where they have a wide variety of choices that will surely fits your taste and style.

Another thing is taking cgood care of the body, usually whenever one becomes a mom her top priority would be her child, that she sometimes could not do her beauty rituals anymore unlike when she was still single where she would spend an hour or so pampering herself while taking a bath.

Being A MOM

>> 5/10/2009

We are sitting at lunch one day when my daughter casually mentions that she and her husband are thinking of "starting a family."you think I should have a baby?"

"It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping my tone neutral.

"I know," she says, "no more sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous vacations ..."

But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my daughter, trying to decide what to tell her. I want her to know what she will never learn in childbirth classes. I want to tell her that the physical wounds of child bearing will heal, but becoming a mother will leave her with an emotional wound so raw that she will forever be vulnerable.

I consider warning her that she will never again read a newspaper without asking, "What if that had been MY child?" That every plane crash, every house fire will haunt her. That when she sees pictures of starving children, she will wonder if anything could be worse than watching your child die.

I look at her carefully manicured nails and stylish suit and think that no matter how sophisticated she is, becoming a mother will reduce her to the primitive level of a bear protecting her cub. That an urgent call of "Mom!" will cause her to drop a soufflé or her best crystal without a moment's hesitation. I feel that I should warn her that no matter how many years she has invested in her career, she will be professionally derailed by motherhood. She might arrange for childcare, but one day she will be going into an important business meeting and she will think of her baby's sweet smell. She will have to use every ounce of discipline to keep from running home, just to make sure her baby is all right.

I want my daughter to know that every day decisions will no longer be routine. That a five year old boy's desire to go to the men's room rather than the women's at McDonald's will become a major dilemma. That right there, in the midst of clattering trays and screaming children, issues of independence and gender identity will be weighed against the prospect that a child molester may be lurking in that restroom. However decisive she may be at the office, she will second-guess herself constantly as a mother.

Looking at my attractive daughter, I want to assure her that eventually she will shed the pounds of pregnancy, but she will never feel the same about herself. That her life, now so important, will be of less value to her once she has a child. That she would give it up in moment to save her offspring, but will also begin to hope for more years-not to accomplish her own dreams, but to watch her child accomplish theirs. I want her to know that a cesarean scar or shiny stretch marks will become badges of honor. My daughter's relationship with her husband will change, but not in the way she thinks. I wish she could understand how much more you can love a man who is careful to powder the baby or who never hesitates to play with his child. I think she should know that she will fall in love with him again for reasons she would now find very unromantic.

I wish my daughter could sense the bond she will feel with women throughout history who have tried to stop war, prejudice and drunk driving. I hope she will understand why I can think rationally about most issues, but become temporarily insane when I discuss the threat of nuclear war to my children's future.

I want to describe to my daughter the exhilaration of seeing your child learn to ride a bike. I want to capture for her the belly laugh of a baby who is touching the soft fur of a dog or cat for the first time. I want her to taste the joy that is so real it actually hurts. My daughter's quizzical look makes me realize that tears have formed in my eyes.

"You'll never regret it," I finally say. Then I reached across the table, squeezed my daughter's hand and offered a silent prayer for her, and for me, and for all the mere mortal women who stumble their way into this most wonderful of callings. This blessed gift from God ... that of being a Mother.

Please share this with a Mom that you know or all of your girlfriends who may someday be moms.



Pool and Snooker Cues for Pool Players

>> 5/09/2009

I am not a sporty type person, the only games I used to enjoy playing is badminton and volleyball. But that was I think ten years ago, I took up badminton in my P.E class during my college days. There is one indoor type of game that my classmates and friends used to enjoy and would even cut classes just to play, and that is playing billiards and other pool games. Some of them even brings their own pool cue whenever they have this tournament. I thought that this are just solely for a man's type of game, but was quite surprised that a lot of women are into this game too.

Some of them are so engaged with it that they are now into collecting different types of pool cues and snooker cues, oh well, they must have really fallen in love with the game for them to entertain the idea of collecting such pricey items. Now that they have been bugging me to search where they can sport some very nice items over the internet, I tried and search where I could find a wide range of pool and snooker cues. My not so long search have lead me to the site of where you could find a wide range of different type of pool cues, they have the 1-4 piece cues that are available from inexpensive machine spliced and traditional cues. But it does not not only end with such types of items. They also offer other accessories and tables for pool and other games such as casino and tennis. This site would be a delight to pool players like my friends as they offer small and large gift ideas like pool ball key rings which are so cute and beneficial to collectors as well.

Your Secial Day Is Near




On Men's Reproductive Health

It is not just women who take full responsibility of taking birth controls when both parties agreed on having one. Men do also have a way on using it through vasectomy which is minor surgical procedure wherein the vasa deferentia of a man are severed, and then tied or sealed in a manner such to prevent sperm from entering the seminal stream in which prevents woman in becoming pregnant. I think this a brave step for a man to underwent this procedure since there are only few cases I knew here in our country, for most men are not into the idea.

But in cases wherein he has changed mind or plans, and would want to have another baby. He can opt to undergo a vasectomy reversal, which is s a surgical procedure that re-approximates the cut ends of the vas deferens, restoring the flow of sperm from the testicle to the prostate, thus having the ability again to achieve and get his partner to conceive a baby. You could check out Minnesota's Men's Health Center for some valuable information regarding this procedure, you could also check out the testimonials of some men who underwent and claims the succes of it. You need to arrive at a wise decision whenever you take any kind of action, mostly if it involves and erisks your health.

Help In Achieving Compensation

There are many cases arising now involving vehicular accidents here in our society. With the rising costs of petroleum products,motorists resort to the use of a more affordable form of transportation which is motorcycle. Vehicular accidents have gone too far ahead cases of these bikes. Just the other day ago, our office messenger met an accident somewhere in Makati area. An SUV car hit him at the back of his motorcycle while he was on the stop mode since traffic light is on the red signal, but this car according to him was rushing and trying to beat the red signal that causes him to a wreck motorcycle and a slight physical injury such as scratches on his arms and face. Poor boy, while trying to negotiate in front of the Police Officer in charge, The owner's side story was being twisted that made it look as if he was being the one to blame of the accident. Good thing that our boss has asked the help of Personal Injury Attorney in Omaha to give him further assistance of the situation that he is now dealing with, to be able to get what is due for him and let the true story came out.
