Newly Opened Home Depot

There's a newly opened home depot just few minutes away from our house and we are thankful for it because we'll not have a hard time looking for some quality home accessories and that includes light fixtures. In fact, we already dropped by there and bought some adapter, bulbs, extension cords, and other stuff. The place was big enough to accommodate their clients and for their products. Their top of the line includes bathroom fixtures and for those that are completing their homes will have a new place to purchase their stuff.

Still on Holiday Mode

Our HK trip and Christmas is already over but I'm still on holiday mode. Just yesterday we went for a lunch at a mall and did shopping for the kids. The mall is jam-packed and it gives me a headache and makes me feel exhausted and tired. There are lots of sale still going on and my niece bought me 2 belts as a gift and I was so thankful for that. I know a lot of you have also did some shopping during the holidays and I'm not sure if you also used a concerta coupon. The new year is coming and we are still very busy. I'll be back for regular blogging next year.

Happy New Year to all of you!

Cold Hongkong

We are back home last Dec. 24 from our HOngkong trip and we all had a blast. Wish we can stay there longer to see more places but we got no more time. It's beautiful there but it's so cold because it's already winter there and we are wishing we had an electric blanket in the hostel where are staying.We braved the cold while seeing the tourist spots because we have our winter jackets on. I have many photos to share and of course stories to share but I will do that after the holidays.

Learn About Debt Consolidation and more

Having debts can really be mind-boggling and stressful. Just imagine the stress that it can give you when everyday you are asked by your creditor to pay your debts. I don’t think I can do my daily routine or even sleep when I’ll be faced by that kind of problem. I know I have a weak heart when it comes to debt that is why I try not to borrow money as much as I can.

For those that don’t have discipline when it comes to using their credit cards, if they will not change their ways of spending then in no time they’ll have some problems with it too and oh dear it’ll be a mess in the end. Though we sometimes can’t eliminate borrowing money esp. in case of emergency, it is but proper for us to pay them bec. some people just hide and not pay it. Little did they know that the interest will still grow and they are only putting themselves into the deep pit of debts.

Thanks to debt consolidation for they are bringing hope to those that have multiple debts from their sleeves. You don’t have to hide from your creditors anymore because you can consolidate (merge) all your debts (credit card, loans) into one, thereby decreasing the interest rate. Here’s a site that offers tons of valuable information (articles, tips, news) about credit card debt consolidation, bill consolidation and lots more.

It’s now the time to manage your debts, pay them off little by little and please don’t hide from it. Be responsible enough.

Do What You Feel is Best For You

Hey all, I hope you are all excited for the holidays like I am. I've been listing all the things that I want to accomplish this month, the shopping, work and many more. I'm also planning our Christmas food together with my sister in law and I hope we can come up with a nice menu for Christmas.

Anyway, I've been bothered with some thoughts and problems of a friend right now. Not that it is life threatening but still it has a big impact on the way she visions and carries herself. I told her that she just do what ever she feels is best for her, whether she likes to splurge on something, take weight loss pills, live alone or take a break from work as long as she will not hurt anybody and as long as she feels it will be good for her.

I Can Be Sarcastic

There are times when we need to be sarcastic and this How Sarcastic Are You? quiz shows that I am not that sarcastic at all.

While you're not sarcastic at all times, you definitely have a cynical edge.In your opinion, not all people are annoying. Some are dead!And although you do have your genuine moments, you can't help getting your zingers in. Some people might be a little hurt by your sarcasm, but it's more likely they think you're hilarious.

No Time to Procrastinate

I know there are days that we just procrastinate or just put things aside for future doing but we need to learn that doing so will make things worst at the end. There are also times that we'll regret our decision in the end bec. we have not done it ahead of time. If there is one thing Ive learned in life, it's get moving. Procrastination just makes things so much worse. If you dream it, you do it. You believe in going for it. And as a result, you've had success in many arenas.

I'd rather regret what I did than regret what you I'm scared to do. I just hope that I will not procrastinate so I'll be more productive and will not regret things afterwards.

Some Blahs....

{{{Yawning}} .. Ooops sorry about that. It's been a sleepy afternoon for me here at my store and eventhough I took a 15 min. nap, still my eyes want to shut down. I think it must be because of the weather as well snce it's December already and the temp. is a bit cooler on most days.

I was also up till 1:30 am because after dinner last night, I went straight to my bed to watch TV but I ended up sleeping. I woke up around 10:30 pm with my fave PBB TV on but failed to watch the 1st of it. Right after that, I had coffee and just browsed online for bags and watches!! till 1:30 am.

Say it with Flowers

So what’s your favorite flower? Mine would be tulips, I  just love its delicate beauty. There are literally thousands varieties of flowers around the world and just think about how many different occasions where you can give flowers and you’ll never go wrong with it. Valentine’s day will not be special without a man giving flowers to the special woman in his life. Flowers can make every woman’s heart melt esp. if it is accompanied by a special note or dedication.

muticolored tulips

Women like me love to feel special not only if there is an occasion. Flowers are just so versatile, you can give it as gifts, it can lighten up anyone’s mood and it can beautify almost any homes, venues and anywhere.

At home mom has a small garden and got few flowering plants and she makes sure that she’ll go there every morning to check on them. I reckon it gives her calmness and it cheers her up by doing so. Sis Joy on the other hand makes it a point to buy some fresh cut flowers that she puts on vase with water to beautify her dining room. With flowers you'll never go wrong, so whatever you feel say it with flowers.

Gifts for Boys

Wow, I can’t believe it! It’s actually December already and I’m getting really excited over the coming events this month. Aside from Christmas, I’m also looking forward to our highschool reunion and our Hongkong trip. We have  been waiting for it for a long time and now few more days and it’s gonna come true.

I hope I don’t sound so giddy like kids who are always looking forward to receive their gifts during Christmas. Seeing their eyes light up and their smiles beaming innocently are such pure joy. Kids love receiving gifts most especially if they will get something that they’ve been longing for the whole year. An xbox, Wii, laptop, or any gadgets that they wanted will no doubt make them tickled pink.


Thinking of what gifts to give for the boys are sometimes hard but once you know what they like you’ll never go wrong. If you think they love NFL, well most of them do, NFL Jerseys can be a great option to give them. Just imagine them wearing their fave NFL uniform that they can show off to friends and relatives.

You’ll find NFL uniform sets, NFL locker rooms and more perfect for kids aged 4- 10. NFL uniform set which includes jersey, pants, helmet and more costs $39.99 while the locker room costs $79.99. It’ll be a unique gift this Christmas.

Choosing the Right Vehicle for Us

Just 2 months ago we bought a second hand van for the family and we are a bit lucky to have purchased it because it was just like brand new. The former owners are quite good in maintaining the van so my brother didn’t have lot of things to repair in there. Buying a second hand or brand new vehicle for us to use can be an overwhelming task to do because we have many things to consider.

My brother even has to resort online to look for van for sale and he also consulted us if we want it or not. There’s even a time where he needs to see the actual van and see if it as good as it looks on the pictures.

Most of us also need to consider our budget and our needs fro traveling. Do we need a big car, a mini-van etc.? I reckon it’s always best to look around, surf the net, read reviews and that’s where we can have good idea. If you are planning to buy one, don’t fail to stop by at for an in-depth reviews such as performance ratings, style, comfort and affordability of different car brands/makes.

You’ll find their full review helpful and useful. Aside from that they have photo gallery, car tips/news, classified ads and more.
