Orlando Citrus Parade Route

Are you excited for the New Year? I bet you are busy organizing a family party to welcome the year of the dragon, right? Well here in Orlando, most people are busy volunteering to create beautiful citrus floats for the Orlando Citrus Parade which will be held on December 31, 2011. The map below is the route based from cfnews13.Take note of the following roads which will be closed:

Orange Ave. from Colonial Drive to Anderson St.
Anderson St. from Orange Ave. To Rosalind Ave.
Robinson St. from Summerlin Ave. to Rosalind Ave.
Amelia St. from Magnolia St. to Garland Ave.
Livingston St. from State Lane to Magnolia St.

According to the news, there will be detour signs and it will be posted to guide the motorists. There will be a busy traffic in getting off of State Road 408 into downtown Orlando as the Rosalind Avenue exit ramp will be closed, detour to Mills Avenue. The I-4 exits to downtown Orlando will also be busy so; delays on the interstate is expected.

The Orlando Citrus Parade will start at 11:00 A.M. Parking space is hard to find if you go there late so; come early to find a good spot. The last time, we park was near the city hall so; we had to walk all the way to Lake Eola. Hubby and I are excited for tomorrow's event. We will see you all tomorrow. Have fun Floridians!

The Week Before Christmas

We were supposed to visit New York for Christmas but, the schedule changed when the catastrophe struck Cagayan de Oro, my home city in the Philippines. It happened on Dec.16, 2011 when people were asleep and raging flood waters struck the houses and everything on it's path. It is the worst calamity in six decades and the incident left thousands of families homeless. I mourn with our friends who lost their daughters, sons, uncles, parents, grandchildren and nieces. It was a week before Christmas and the tragedy happened where Christmas trees with full of gifts are all set for the celebration.

Basically, most of the residents in my city Volunteer and assists the needs of the flood victims. People like us who lives halfway around the globe are busy packing relief goods to send to the people of CDO. We also send cash donations to various organizations and most of all sent directly to the family who are victims. I for one forgets Christmas Eve but, the spirit of gift giving is very much alive. We attended the mass on Christmas Eve and gave the kayak paddles to our friend who is a sports minded but, we refuse to attend the party. We went home and I talk to my family and relatives who are flood victims who are staying with my mom in CDO. My Christmas is complete and happy because they are all safe. My thoughts are for my friends who suffered a tremendous loss of this tragic event caused by Storm Washi (Bagyong Sendong). May God bless their hearts.

Attention ABS CBN Re: Relief Operation to CDO

I hope this incident will never happen again. The ABS-CBN network together with Kris Aquino (& the group) visited Cagayan de Oro City to provide Relief Operation in Consolacion and Balulang areas. The result of the visit is negative and it created a big discussion in Facebook groups because the victims were not treated accordingly. Below is an opinion posted in Facebook Wall:
Ang sa akin lang po, sana naman ibinahagi ang tulong para sa mga biktima ng tama. The flood victims were cold, hungry and thirsty for water. They waited for hours but, hindi nabigyan lahat kasi umalis na kayo pagkatapos ng video footage. Feeling nang mga biktima ginawa silang props para may maibalita kayo. Tama ba yun na umalis kayo at hindi nyo naibigay ang tulong na intended for them? Okay lang sana kung naubusan kayo, kaso marami pa pero di ninyo ibinigay. Sana hindi nyo nalang ipinakita sa kanila kasi torture yan eh. Here's another observation from a volunteer:

RE-POST: Actual report by Volunteer =Tess:

"last dec. 19 @ 2pm more or less my son with other abs cbn volunteers reported for duty.. when the truck abs cbn streamer was full of relief goods already, the team was instructed to proceed to Balulang evac. center to download and be ready for distribution the goods in the truck. while on their way to balulang, a call from the base instructed them to stop and wait for kris aquino and party. so the team waited for for these people. @ 6pm, a call from the base advised them to proceed instead to Brgy. Consolacion since Kris and party was there already. Imagine 3 hrs naghulat mga volunteers only to be instructed to go to Consolacion instead. Nag yawyaw na volunteers ngano ing ana pamaagi ( and my son even said in a loud manner " kang Kris ba diay ning mga relief goods? but the wala choice man but to heed to the instructions given...unsay pagtuo nila sa mga volunteers mga robot nga bahalag abtan midnight hulat2x ok lang di na kailangan foods to sustain them from doing the tasks? again, the team proceeded to Consolacion. sobra kaayo jud ka heavy ang traffic so hinay jud ang dagan sa truck....dawbe kay ang mga tao didto gutom na jud kaayo kay halos man pangbirahon na ang mga sinako relief goods but no instructions given yet if i distribute ang goods. ila na lang gi explainan volunteers ra sila and have to wait for further singgit na sila" unsa man na bay inyo ra na paibog. para unsa ra man na nga gidala dala dili ihatag?"gutom na daw sila kaayo. kinsa sad kaha wala nagutom sa nahitabo. hadlok na kaayo ang volunteers basin musaka na ang mga tao then sakwaton mga sinako nga goods.wala sad sila gipakuyugan ug volunteer-soldier or police for security reasons unta.. after a while, there came vans in convoy. Kris and party naman diay muagi with arrogant PSG men shouting "tabi kayo..saan ba mga pulis dito. sus nakurat tawon ang team nga mulakaway naman diay kris and party why pa man paadto pa sila didto? minutes after, a call from the base instructed them to leave Consolacion and head for Balulang again. OMG, ang relief goods gipalaway lang jud diay...upon reaching Balulang around 9pm more or less gisunodsunud jud tawon ang truck sa mga victims..wala lang gihapon instruction if i download na relief goods sa evac center. gihikap na pud sa mga evacuees ang sako2xng goods..they are shouting na nga manghatag na kay gutom na kaayo. wa man jud sila instruction as in pa lamo2x na lang sila di mamansin. kay nakita man lagi nila ang atreamer abs cbn relief ops. ug wala man sila balebaleha..nisinggit sila "aha naman inyong presidente?" Among Binay gkan na dinhi...nadawat nasad dayon sila call from the base instructing them to go back to base..grabe ila kauoy sa mga tao nga grabe pa trauma gidaladala then wla pa tagda ila pangamuyo tagaan sila. wal choice ang team but to go back to base but ni sekreto sila open sako then secretly hand in goods sa malabyan nila pero ila sad sinyasan "psst ayaw saba sa uban". hadlok man sila basin kalit mangdasuk mga tao..maapsan baya sila kay traffic pud hinay dagan sa truck.. mao na ila ordeal murag mas na trauma sila sa mga actuations sa network kay kita nila mismo ang mga situations sa mga areas affected nga ila naadtuan unya nag location-hopping lang man diay sila. ako na siya pa stop volunteer sa network and instead get involved thru NGO's or schools or any parish."

I hope we learn a lesson in this scenario. People trust their money to your network with the hope that you will deliver accordingly. You gathered millions of donations sana man lang naipamahagi ito ng tama. God bless to all the donors and thank you for your compassion.

There Is Hope Cagayan de Oro City

December 16, 2011 is the day Tropical Storm Sendong hit the Philippines. For almost a week, I can't console myself to do other things but, stay on FB for updates, doing some charity work and watch the videos in YouTube. Most of us probably sent our help but we know it is not enough. The impact of this calamity is huge because we mourn with them for the loss of their children, husband, father, mother, cousin and neighbors. It is heartbreaking to see the coastal area of my beloved city covered with mud, deformed and houses washed away from the raging flood waters. Since Day 1, my family was doing the best we can to make our 10 relatives feel at home to ease a little bit of their traumatic experiences. They live with my mom in a safe place in CDO. All of us do not worry of what's tomorrow may bring. What we worry right now is the other families that we know who have no place to go but stay in Evacuation Areas. Most of the victims who survived were now homeless. But, we can only do so much. For a start, I give up most of my clothes in the closet to distribute to some of the family victims. My relatives are victims but, they decided to help by bringing gallons of drinking waters to their neighborhood. Most of the people that I know are doing the same thing which is really heartwarming.But, it is very depressing to see photos like these knowing that there were houses stood there before and now, it's gone. As of today, the death toll in Cagayan de Oro alone reaches a thousand and rising because there are hundreds of people who are missing.We mourn today but, with the help you extend, we have high hopes that CDO will restore its beauty. Thank you for all your help and for responding to our desperate call. From the bottom of the hearts of the Cagayanons, SALAMAT JUD SA TANAN NGA MITABANG.

Rent A Home in Calgary

About a year ago, I met a friend who lives in Calgary, Alberta. He is a good man in fact; he is well loved by his family.

Never Move

Content by Kyle Lowe:

I thought my kids would NEVER move out of the house. I’m all for them saving money and making sure they’re stable and everything before they go but you know, at the end of the day it was really frustrating that they were in their mid-twenties and they still lived at home and expected me to do their laundry, cook their dinner and all the other mom things I had done for too long. They were adults and I needed to start treating them that way so I told them to find an apartment together! They’re girls so I told them I’d pay for the security system salt lake city service so I’d feel better about them living on their own and to my surprise they took the offer. Now they’re living near school and they’ve got part time jobs – can you imagine why in the world I haven’t done this sooner? I’m thankful to have the house back and I know my kids are glad they’re out on their own at last.

If you think that the internet marketing strategy is simple, I will refute that! I have been blogging for three years now and the subject about link popularity, SEO, site ranking and more are not easy to understand. Well, some bloggers talk about this topic in social media platform and yet, only IT experts understood the flow about Internet marketing tactics. Some of us hire people who are knowledgeable about these stuffs. Yes, we do spend money so that our blog looks appealing to the readers. When we market our blogs, we will have more visitors and thus, we gain popularity. It holds true with business either micro or macro, your online business should have a working SEO. More visits to your online site means possible product sales and possible clients for your services. Your business is nothing when no one knows you exist in the Internet world!

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for an seo company and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

Our server did a wonderful job and the manager tried to check on us if we enjoyed our meal. Of course we did! This restaurant is cozy and the ambiance is really great!We love the food and though I only ordered two plates of appetizers, it fills me up bigtime! I ordered Stuffed Mushrooms with portabello, shiitake, goat and romano cheeses. The appetizer that I enjoyed the most is the sauteed shrimp with white beans and breadsticks.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and this location too.

The View of Nassau, Bahamas from the Cruise Terminal

Here's some of the pictures that I took while we were on board the Norwegian Sky Cruiseship. I just can't put down my camera because the view from the ship was truly beautiful. This is Nassau, Bahamas, the last island destination of our 4-days cruise to Bahamas. That is Atlantis, the big building shown in these pictures. The cruise terminal is very clean and the water is deep blue, no trash at all.We visited the Atlantis in the morning and came back to the ship at 3PM. Transportation access is only $4/person which is very affordable.
From the Atlantis, hubby and I decided to take the ferry and it's only $3/person. The ride was enjoyable and interesting. The water is really blue and clean. No sign of crude and trash in the water.I love this place. If I am rich, I will buy me a property here and stay half of the year just relaxing.Atlantis, the Paradise Island in Bahamas is a huge place complete with all the amenities one would ever wish for a great vacation. It is an expensive place too in fact, for Holiday dates, the cheapest room is $319/day. Whewww!

Ideal Neighborhood

We have two realtors working with us now. Both in two different locations. One realtor covers Brevard county and we already look at houses in Palm Bay area. It is about 75 m from Orlando. For two months, we had no luck. I told my husband that we will try a townhouse so that we will not have to do anything else. Look at the wide road and the landscaping of this place. Isn't it beautiful? We went to this location yesterday and I love the place. It is newly constructed (2007), poured concrete and the space is a good size. The home owners fee is very affordable and the neighborhood is very quiet. It is nearby the area of NASA facilities.This is the first townhouse that we bid and I am hoping that they will accept our offer. There is a short sale though so, it may take a long time to process. But, we are okay with that because we are not in a hurry to move. I already pack some of our things and I did not bother to unpack it. Anyway, this is an ideal neighborhood to live and I like it because it is nearby Orlando.

Hush Hush from Bloggers

It's been a month that I started to feel lost of interest in blogging. All I want is just sit back and do nothing at all. I lost track of those times that I share interesting topic. This feeling is not new though. And I know, my interest in blogging will come back.

Anyway, what's new in business? Crisis! Well, business is great since Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Blogging is somewhat business too because half of the times, bloggers monetized their blogs. There's a big hush in Twitter and Facebook platforms and it's about the low-paying ads of the advertisers. For a fact, online marketing ads are working great. Every time you open a Website, somewhere along that page has advertisement and when you click it, someone earns and the other got the sales. But, there are advertisers who has low budget and pay less amount to marketing agencies. Therefore, this marketing site is having a hard time looking for bloggers who accepts the low paying ads. Most advertisers who has low budget are the ones who demands more effort from bloggers.

I guess everyone is in crisis these days. But, I cannot blame why bloggers rejected the low paying tasks of advertisers. It is not worth the hassle and not worth the time. Why settle for $6.75 when more advertisers can pay you $25 for 200 words right?

Spiritual Development

If you feel lost and alone, how do you counter-act such situation? Do you hate God? Do you blame your misfortune to other people? I will not blame you for having that sentiment. But, if you take time to listen to the problems of other people, you will realize that your burden is not bad at all. Do you want to listen to something that is inspiring? Spiritual Development is what people need and whether you like it or not, you need that in your life too. We are only human and we are vulnerable with pain especially when we feel rejection. We thought that what we did is not enough and we tend to shield ourselves by being withdrawn.

You and I know that we need friends and we need our family. Communication is important and we need to express ourselves to be heard. When no one is listening, God will. Talk to God thru prayers. When we call our friends and they are unavailable, the signals to heaven are all the time open. Prayers are the key to finding peace and understanding. Give it a chance today and be humble that you need God in your life. Where do you start? Visit the Website Humanistic Spirituality and you will find peace.

Winter Coats

Our friend works in an airline company and we asked her if she could provide us a cheaper ticket to New York. She told us that she will go with us for two nights. Now, I am excited for the trip and I plan to go shopping for winter coats to wear for that trip. My friend wears plus size clothing. I thought about shopping for plus size coats for her as a Christmas gift. I think it would be a great idea. If I don't have time in NYC, I can always hop online. Roaman's Website is her favorite online store and they have beautiful selections of winter coats. I will buy my gift from that site if I don't find any deals in NYC because it is very convenient and I am sure she will love the design of their coat I pick out for her.

Hubby and I supposed to visit New York during the lighting of their Christmas tree but, our friend requested that we will go after the event. As long as I can visit New York for Christmas Holiday, I am totally fine with that. I am truly happy that she will come with us because when it comes to shopping, we get along so well. Though we have different sizes, her plus size coats should come from her favorite online store.

Tebowing and Tim Tebow

The new fad in the US especially those who follow football is TEBOWING! Three years ago, I am not interested with Football because I love to watch Basketball. Football game is an American culture in itself so; I watch the game to better understand it. The first game that I watch was College Football and the team that my husband cheered was the Gators. I immediately noticed the man who has the bible verses on his face. I admire the fact that he wants to relay the message of God using the bible verses written on his cheeks. My husband told me his name was Tim Tebow. I became his fan. "Sa mga taong hindi naniniwala sa Diyos, galit sila sa kanya!" Of course, his detractors started attacking him because of this. It seems that praising God is a big NO-NO! What is the matter with this people? The more people love him and adored his achievements, haters and atheist react! It offended them every time Tim Tebow praises God. " Parang nasusunog ang kaluluwa ng mga taong di naniniwala sa Diyos. Dami talaga makikitid na utak sa tabi-tabi". Despite his achievements, Tim Tebow is humble and honest. When he answered truthfully about virginity question saying he is still a virgin, his answer was scrutinized. "Dito, parang mali kung ang tao ay virgin pa! Ano ba naman, twisted ba ang utak ng mga detractors na ito? Eh, sa atin, saludo tayo sa mga virgin pa, dito parang nandidiri sila?" His detractors tried to break his character but, Tim Tebow will soar high with achievements. Every time he did a good job during the game, he bend down his knees and praises GOD. He gives total reverence to GOD. While fans and spectators cheered him for the scores he gave to the team, he praises God. That is admirable and Christians are so happy for that. "Pinoy na pinoy po si Tim kahit Amerikano sya! Kaya, bigyan natin sya ng suporta, manalo o matalo man. Wag maniwala sa mga bintang!" By the way, he visits the Philippines frequently. His parents are Baptist missionaries and they built a ministry in Pinas. Tim was Born in Manila, Philippines. Yayyy! Go and check it!

The Best Way to Study

I have high regard for law students. Law is not an easy field to study. When they graduate and pass the board exam, the demand from their profession is constant study on the latest cases. If they miss important detail in a case, they cannot win it. Anyway, when I was in the University, I work in the main library. Law students come to the library more often than the other students in the campus. They read books with thick pages and they are so studious. Learning the cases such as Pennoyer v. Neff is easier especially when they use Quimbee. It truly simplifies the information that they read. It is like reading the important facts and details of the case.

Quimbee provides a summary of the casebook therefore; law student can save the time spent reading. The zest of the case is provided in blue print by legal professionals so; what they read is reliable. This company helps simplify the casebook readings of Law Student and they provide thousands of casebook summary. Law students can access it when they subscribe at Quimbee. It is very affordable.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18.0 MP

I saw this item at TARGET with this price $649.99 Reg:$799.99, a saving of $150.00. This is Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18.0MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS Lens - Black. This is actually cheaper than what can offer ($749). At Walmart, it is $699.98 but, with a value bundle: Canon Bag, Bonus 58" Tripod, Bonus 4GB Memory Card and 50 bonus prints. This is also a good deal right? While at BestBuy it is $899 but, it includes a Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III zoom lens.

Junk Removal Company

Last week, we found a home and we bid on it. In less than 24 hours, our bid was accepted so; we proceeded to the inspection and the report had major problems. We backed out. Right now, we are back to square one. During the time that they accepted our offer, we were ready to move. Boxes were ready in the living room and one renter was already waiting to move too. I throw some of the tiny junks to the garbage but, the big items were not allowed. So, I left the junks outside the yard and in less than an hour, things were gone.

Anyway, if you have junks in the house, what would you do? If you keep it for years, you will become hoarders. Get rid of them now. You should call Piney Point Village Junk removal and this company will help you at reasonable price.

MCO Parking

When we went to Miami, we were disappointed with the parking space that we booked online. The place was unmarked and there was no shaded area for customer accommodation.

Indoor Water Parks

I have few magazine subscriptions that feature the beautiful tourist destination in the US. That is where I saw the awesome pictures of Indoor Water Parks in Texas. This park is located along Grapevine; known as Great Wolf Lodge where endless water adventure awaits the guests. It is a water park which all members of the family enjoys because each age group will have their own place to hang out. Toddlers will enjoy the Cub Paw Pool where it features the spray of water while they play. The wolf walk and story time activities are entertaining for the toddlers too because they can explore the place and listen to stories. The activities at Great Wolf Lodge bring family together. Parents can create the quality time with their teenagers too at the crooked creek and Howlin' Tornado areas. Teens love the adrenalin rush activities so; take the time to be with them in these adventures. If you have a little princess in the family, you should treat the princess to a kid spa for pampering. It would be a fun activity for making them special. You and your family will surely create a memorable experience through the rides, attractions and activities at the Great Wolf Lodge.

The Beach Down Cocoa

When we went down south towards Miami, we stopped in one of the beaches along the high way. There was a public area where people can access the beach for free. Hubby and I bought a Chinese food for lunch and we had a picnic on the beach. The waves are moving like crazy and the sea was rough that day.There were three young men doing the surfing up ahead. These waves are dangerous in fact, there were warning signs along the entrance to avoid the water for strong currents and rip tides.There were few people on the beach having a sun tan and one couple just walk down the shore. From time to time, there were motorists stopping by to take pictures of the big waves.
The shorelines were a mess pushing these sea plants off towards the shore. There was no storm but the sea was rough. I cannot imagine how devastating it would be if a hurricane hits this place.
If the water is calm, this beach is a nice place to hang out.

The Freestyle Cruising: Norwegian Sky

October 2011- This month is special ( sort of ) because my husband and I had our first cruising experience through Norwegian Sky. It was the best according to some of the acquaintances that we have had while on board the Freestyle Cruise. When I was checking the cruising suggestion sent by a company through email, I was tempted with the last minute booking.I saw there were really affordable prices on the last minute cruising. It was actually half of the regular price so, since the four of us had free time to go, we book it. We are all newbies in cruising to Bahamas that is why, we love it. The picture above was taken inside their elegant STARDUST THEATER located at Decks 6 and 7 in the Aft section.
The Hallway heading to the Mandara Spa and Salon at Deck 11 in Fwd Section of the Norwegian Sky. We were just exploring to the different decks to familiarize where to go for special events that day. This way, we had the terrific adventure to get a feel for the ship. See the crowd below? We went to Stardust for the show called: On Broadway, the Sky Production Show. It was a grand night and spectacular presentation!
Freestyle Cruising is an easy, carefree cruise experience with top-notch crew members and most of them came from the Philippines. I would say 90 percent are Filipinos in fact, the Cruise Director Richard Matic is a Filipino. He is the brain behind all the entertainment and activities on the ship.The picture below is the hallway heading to Stardust Theater. We did rock the night away during the first day! The show in Stardust was spectacular because of the sounds and music from soul and folk to rock n' roll. The pictures and videos were not permitted during the show though.After the show, we went to Dazzle's Nightclub at Deck 6, mid section to enjoy the show called Sing it, If you know it. We had fun with this crazy game where we had to guess the song and again, the band came from the Philippines too. Oh, they were awesome!

Home Buying Experience

The house on the left is located in a quiet neighborhood and it is priced as of today $32K with 3/2 in 1,196 with a big yard already fenced in. You should consider the amount of money added to the property cost. This property is a good deal because it is located near the shopping center. When buying a house, you should consider the convenience of the following: grocery, hospital, church, malls etc. It all depends upon what you want to access regularly.Buying a house is so stressful and it will consumed your time and gas money. If you are not patient, you will end up buying the property which is not your dream house. It will go back to what kind of house you are looking for. If you asked me, I prefer a two storey building but, it also depends on the budget and the location of the property. I want my property that is located in a neighborhood like the picture above or better. I want to see neighbors!Location- it is really simple. Do you like a quiet location? Let us sub task the location such as: quiet neighborhood with neighbors that is located in either side of the property or quiet neighborhood because your property stood across the woods? If you hate the traffic, you probably prefer the woods as your neighbor night? Well, just make sure that hospital is nearby or grocery is with in the driving distance. It is easy to buy a house but, to re-sell it in this economy? You will sweat a lot to sell in the market once you learn that it will not work for you.
