Indoor Fountain

Every year, hubby and I loves to visit a home and garden show in the city and also in the neighboring towns. The various display shows the amazing products of an individual such as knives, rugs, tile cutter to products of big companies like kitchen and bedroom renovation.Each product in the show has interesting concept that is why people are also buying. One of the home decors that I love to own is the indoor fountain particularly, floor fountain. I almost bought one, see the first picture above? That is my favorite.
The fountain not only looks good as indoor decor but also draws positive energy because of the soothing effect of the water flowing. This particular floor fountain is a work of art, don't you think?
This decor would look good in the hallway or in the pool area. The price is not that bad considering you are purchasing an art which is so unique.

Wolfgang Puck Coffee Product

I watched his show on TV while I was still in the Philippines. He is a celebrity chef, born under the sign of Cancer (just like me) and owner of Wolfgang Puck Companies. Did you know that when there is an Academy Awards, he is always chosen as the official caterer? Yap! And here's what surprised me, his coffee product which was served by the hotel! Of course, It tastes delicious!When I googled, I learned that Wolfgang Puck's favorite food is macaron which is a sweet confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder and food coloring with butter cream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. He is easy to please huh?
Anyway, this product was served in Castillo Resort in Saint Augustine! Pretty amazing that the resort chose high end product such as this coffee by Wolfgang Puck! It would only mean one thing, the hotel care about their guests because they have good service and served good products only! If you want to visit Saint Augustine, stay in Castillo Resort!

Professional Worker

We heard over and over again about workers who just want the money and did a lousy job. When we complain, it doesn't undo the bad job at all. It would only upset us and we can't spend another big payment for a service which is unreliable. The wise option is to do it correctly for the first time. If you are looking for construction leads, visit the link here and try posting the kind of service you need. You should register for a FREE account then, start posting the kind of service you need with the maximum budget you prepare. Make sure you describe it thoroughly what needs to be done to get the right worker who are professional and expert. You will then wait for the list of bidders and this is interesting, you will be hiring the best bidder. It is your prerogative to choose the worker you think fit the job. How is that sound? For now, check the Website for more information about this service. Grab the chance and find the professional worker that you need!

Fishing Boats in Gulf Coast

After my two days trip to the Saint Augustine, I began to appreciate the coast of Florida. No wonder that it is one of the best tourist destinations in the world because it has the beauty of nature, perfect beaches and the weather that you can enjoy to stay outdoor most of the season.I had the privileged of living in Mississippi down the Gulf Coast for almost two years. I must admit, it was equally beautiful. We live just 3 minutes away from the beach and the view was just perfect.
The people are friendly, the food is great, the crime is very low and the place is pretty awesome. Almost every weekend, there are activities in the town and I witness all the happy events in the place.
The wonderful scenery will be seen at the parking garage of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The fishing boats mostly owned by the Vietnamese fishermen in Biloxi. They sell fresh craw fish, shrimps, blue crab, and all kinds of fishes at affordable price. You should come visit this place. The beach and the food are irresistible.

Dancing With the Stars

Have you seen the amazing stunt of Kirstie Alley during the Finale of Dancing With the Stars? The conservative yet sexy entrance then all of a sudden, a revelation of her figure during the fast-paced dance and the lift part! Amazing! She lost weight during her stay as one of the contestants of DWTS Season 12. What a stunning transformation dropping a whooping 60lbs and counting!
The Final three vying for DWTS Ultimate Winner for Season 12: Chelsea, Hines and Kirstie, they are just amazing dancers. The big WIN goes to Hines Ward, the NFL receiver of Pittsburgh who paired with Kym, such a perfect combination of talent!
It just dawned on me that watching DWTS is truly interesting. You got to see the complicated steps and learn the characters of the stars because they showed the rehearsal video capturing how they react to every situation. You will see who got bad temper, who is patient and all. A good show to watch for the next season.

Watching the Deadliest Catch

I was watching the Deadliest Catch using my Netflix the whole afternoon today. I was doing laundry (bedsheets) at the same time because we had three relatives who stayed over with us for two nights. Sometimes hubby and I loves to stay home and do household chores and this day is one of those.Anyway, I probably watched a dozen episodes from 2009-2010, making it my own marathon. Catching Alaskan king crabs in this tricky sea must be one of the hardest job in the world. I got chills when they show crosses on the hill of the fishing port, a reminder that some men never came back alive. A sad sight!

Laptop Sleeves

I have been to San Francisco and I love that place simply because I am geared to city living lifestyle.

If you own a netbook or macbook, don't look any further because you can also buy the affordable 13" macbook air sleeves here. Just check the Website today and find the stylish laptop sleeves that you've been looking for.

Judgement Day

Six hours more and it will be May 22,2011! What does it mean? The judgement day prediction is a total bogus! Look at the man holding the sign, I wonder how he feels by now that the rapture day didn't come today.No one knows when the world will end! NO ONE! The world will definityely come to an end but, let us not worry that at this moment! As long as we breathe LIFE, we should live according to what's RIGHT! Let us Respect each other and let us love one another. We should follow the norms of our society so we can live our world peacefully! Whew! I know I am dreaming! If we all do this, our world is too perfect! Our world needs balance that is why, there is good and evil, there is joy and sadness, there is rich and poor, there is chaos and calmness, there is love and hate! It is up to YOU, what role you have to play in this lifetime. Who you gonna be? And who knows what tomorrow brings? Only GOD knows!

My Computer Bag

When I travel for days, I always bring my favorite laptop to keep track of my work online. But, if I do some errands outside my home, I have my netbook with me all the time. Anyway, when I bought my favorite laptop, it comes with a complete set including choices of cool computer bags. Of course, mine is like the picture below. It has compartments which I can easily segregate my things.My laptop bag is very comfortable, convenient and made of Polyester material. It also has a spacious front pocket which I use to store my notes. The handle is foam padded and with adjustable padded shoulder strap. I love it! It serves to the purpose.

American Idol: The Final Two

When I started watching the 2011 American Idol season, specifically during the selection of top 12, I am not a big fan of the finalists. For me, the original judges Simon, Randy and Paula had that complete package that sees beyond talent. I like it when Simon scrutinized the contestants and it sure does helped them prepare for what's ahead of them. Fame and Stardom has high price at stake for them to stay longer in the Limelight of Hollywood.The top three finalists: Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, and Haley Reinhart proves to be the cream of the crop for American Idol 2011! They are not the best bet of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson because it was pretty obvious that they adored Casey Abrams but, the crowd had their voice. I must admit that the voting viewers was able to pull the best top two finalists ever! The finalists visit to their hometown made me emotional and teary-eyed. Scotty couldn't believe the warm welcome of the people in his hometown. While in his limousine, he sobbed in great awe and amazement well, that's how I see it :-) A happy tears finally saying, this is the moment of stardom eh? "o" Lauren shared the same emotion with Scotty. The moment when she visited the tornado stricken place in her hometown was a heart-breaker. Anyway, Haley's visit shows a blown away of excitement and fun. She's used to the crowd because she comes from a family of musician but, the visit was extremely different! She loves the limelight and that's for sure...then, she was voted out! Left standing were Scotty and Lauren, the final two for American Idol 2011. Who do you think will win?

Father's Day Gifts

What's the best gift for Father's Day? Enough giving a necktie already :-) Unless if he requested to have a new one but if not, give him something that he can use. If he like gadgets, give him a new GPS so he will have something to rely on the road. Work is tiring for 8 hours so, having a reliable GPS would give his mind at ease while driving on the way home. Of course, having a long stay travel insurance is way better a peace of mind he gets though.In addition to that, surprise him an XM Radio where he can customise his listening pleasure. XM Radio has hundred channels to choose from which he might like. He can select country music, comedy show, talk show, rock songs and many more. The relaxation of daddy's mind should start when he sat down on his driver's seat with easy navigation and the comfort of listening to his favorite channel.Of course, get him one of the bedside pc desk. A simple comfort to have him enjoy his time in the bedroom. Sometimes, daddy needs a last minute check on his pc and doesn't want to get up to his office. These are simple gifts that you might consider for Father's Day. Simple. Affordable. Useful!

James Durbin is Out

May 12, 2011- James Durbin has the lowest votes for the week and was voted out! The judges were dismayed of the result as what I saw on their faces and JLO was in tears! I was thinking, this is the right time to give away the only "SAVE CARD" by the judges. It could have been worth saving the talent for the Final Four! With this in mind, everything happened for a reason so, enough crying over a spilled milk right, LOL?

Nobody can predict the outcome of this show! The future of the ultimate idol is in the hands of the voting viewers. I must admit, I stop voting when Thia Megia was voted out but, I watched American Idol every week. Judging from their performance, I thought Haley Reinhart will be out but, I was wrong! Anyway, James Durbin is 22 years old from Santa. Cruz, California. The biggest question now is: Who do you think will win? If you are a big fan of any of the three finalists, the best way to show support is VOTE!

Anyway, how amazing how technology can change people lives such as businesses have 0871 Numbers, AI has voting system thru fon/online. It truly change lives!

Wii Consoles

We were at Walmart yesterday checking some items in the grocery then, I saw a Wii Console with a price tag $149. Unbelievable! I just bought a $199 black Wii console few weeks ago for my sibling back home. Well, that was way better than this but, this package is not bad at all.This Nintendo Black Wii Console w/ Mario Kart Includes: Black Wii Console, Mario Kart for Nintendo Wii, Black Wii Wheel, Black Nunchuk Controller, Black Wii Remote Plus. When I was in the Philippines last January, I went to SM Mall and Wii Consoles are ($330)/14,000 pesos for black and ($450)/19,000 pesos for white, with only Wii Sport game included.
The picture above is my score while playing bowling in my Wii. I am no expert but, at least I won over my husband:-) If you want to buy Wii Consoles for gifts, check Walmart, Target and Best Buy. Compare their prices and what's included in the package. Good luck!

Patriotism in the USA

When I first arrived in the Land of the Free, I was amazed how the retired people show their love of country by hoisting the flag on their backyard. And I admire that! In fact, my father-in-law has one because he was a retired major in the army. He was so proud of having a US flag in his property and in some way, I am too. What gets me ticked off are incidents like this: In 2009 (South Carolina) A woman put a US flag let on the road to honor a fallen marine, an employee of Bank of America, pulled it off because it's on the front of their property afraid that clients might complain. Crazy absurd statement right? This is America, it's an American Flag, they are Bank of America for goodness sake! While others show Patriotism to the US, others thought it's awkward! They should need a refresher course about US Patriotism.

Hummer Brand

I am a petite person but, I love BIG cars. I love trucks, SUV's , Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and I like to own a Hummer. It just feels so safe when I'm driving big cars and besides, drivers respect big cars. Have you seen a Pink Hummer? Here's one.I am scared of road accidents but, when I'm driving huge cars, the probability of getting hurt is less. Hummer is not the best choice when it comes to mileage especially with the high gas price, you might think I'm crazy LOLZ.I like the 2007 Hummer H2 because there's changes added from an H1 model. All models have the option of a rear-vision camera system and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Plus, there is also a new Glacier Blue limited edition. Not important to most people but for me, it's cool.
An H2 holds up to six with an easy ride, good steering and total passenger comfort. A Hummer H2 HUT variant debuted in 2005 and is considered as a crossover model. It features the passenger cabin of an SUV and a small pickup truck bed instead of a closed cargo area. Check out the snipped pictures below. General Motors has owned the marketing rights to the Hummer brand since 1999. Hummers are built in Indiana by AM General and are sold by GM dealers. A used Hummer cost from 38K depending how much is the used mileage.Hummer brand was defunct since May 2010. I saw a 2007 Hummer with 26K miles for a price tag of 38K. Pricey still.

Friend and Stuffs

I have been blogging for years now and I found many good friends online. Would it be possible? Internet has it's good blessings as well as the negative aspects in-tail to it. Equally, I had those experiences but, I don't dwell on the negative side. I am leaning towards the positive outcome I am getting. For that reason, I am acknowledging a friend who I stay in contact with after all these years.I got the following stuffs from Cecile, a blogger from Texas. I am encouraging you to visit her blog and view her divine home baked meals. I'm sure you can't stop form drooling, LOLZ. Ces, thank you so much for the friendship, for the comments on my posts which made me smile and for these wonderful stuffs.I've been to Houston and Dallas, Texas, I was there 3x but the last one was when I got stranded on my flight coming from Los Angeles and I was "ALONE". My hubby helped me booked a hotel nearby the airport and I stayed there one night. The next day, I left Texas with my slight opportunity of taking another flight as a chance passenger.My flight ordeal was so scary the whole hour. There were so many tornado touchdown at that time and we are having a bumpy flight. When we arrived in Mississippi, we had to circle the airport because we can't land. The pilot then announced that we had to get a fuel in Alabama. Some passengers requested to take off in that State instead and I joined in. My husband had to drive an hour to get me in that State. My seatmate on the plane is a military who was assigned in Afghanistan said, " I rather be in war zone than in this freakin' stormy bad weather". He meant was, in war zone, he can take cover safely but, on a flight with stormy weather like we had, life is too easy to vanish :-). Anyway, I still want to go back to Texas and explore the many tourist attractions of that state and hopefully, meet my friend Cecile in person :-). Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness my friend.

He Loves the Cracker Barrel

Once or twice a week, hubby and I always had a breakfast or lunch out with our friend. She just lost her husband few months ago and so, only the three of us come to continue what we used to do. We missed our friend so much. He stood by me as my father during my wedding day. Basically, he was the person who hand me over to my husband. Cracker Barrel was his favorite place for breakfast. He loves to order biscuits and gravy, and after the meal, he would go buy chocolates and candies in the inside store.Since he passed away, we remembered the happy times that we had with him.He just loves the decor and the display inside Cracker Barrel. He bought so many decoration for every occasion such as Christmas, Spring, Halloween and Easter.
Every visit that we have here is not really all about him. The three of us agreed that this place is really nice for breakfast. The ambiance is very "homey" because of the personal decors but, also very elegant. Would you agree?

Microsoft One Note Tripbook: Rome, Italy

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Microsoft for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard about the Microsoft One Note 2010 program yet? If not, let me tell you about OneNote TripBook that I did using One Note program. It is a digital notebook from Microsoft which give you the flexibility and the freedom to be productive as well. One Note provides a single place where you can gather all your data and information, has quick search capabilities, and has that easy-to-use shared notebooks. This program will help you manage an overload information therefore, you can work with others to get that effective outcome that you wanted! When I installed the software, it comes with so many features including One Note Linked Notes and Send to One Note. It gives me the ease to transfer the links to my Trip Book instantly. When I did my Trip Book, gathering of information was the first task that I did and used the features which I mentioned earlier. The clippings below are the three pages of my trip book.

On the first page, I inserted pictures and also inserted link from a Web page.  Using One Note is easy and fun because you can Insert table, clippings, video, audio, attach file and many more. I had fun using Draw features too especially the highlighter and when I used too much, I can always erase it using the eraser. I used the aqua color to emphasize the importance of the word on this Trip Book such as the word Morning.

On the last page, I used screen clipping, inserted pictures, video, links, and also used the highlighter from the Draw tools. My trip book is about my dream vacation in Rome, Italy and if given the chance to visit, I wrote my itinerary for 24 hours. In one day, I will be staying in a hotel and will visit  two restaurants at the most plus, see some of the tourist attractions. I had so much fun doing this trip book and I am inviting you all to visit onenotetravel.com and read my post which will go LIVE on May 2, 2011.

Holy Redeemer Church in Florida

I am presently burning with gladness! I just came from a Catholic seminar called Life in the Spirit held at the Holy Redeemer School Gym.This is the church that I visited today. The place is gigantic with beautiful landscape. Like many other churches, Holy Redeemer came from a humble beginning too. It started from a chapel owned by a family and by 1912, the first mass was said as it became a church. The need to make a bigger and beautiful church came in reality with the help of Father Nolan.
A period of 9 months construction, November 22, 1973 is the grand opening of the newly constructed Holy Redeemer Church. Look at it now! Amidst the monetary hardships which the parishioners were facing at that time, the church stood so gallantly up to the present.
If you want to become a member of this church, visit the Website or call the number above. The environment of this church is very beautiful and if you have children, this is a nice place to Educate your children.
All photos in this post were snipped from it's own Website: hredeemer.org and if you want to know more about this church, just visit the site or call the phone number listed above.

Oil-Free Acne Wash from Walgreens

Today, I received a sample of  "Oil-Free Acne Wash", one of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products. My skin has imperfections and I am using an Oil-Free Acne Wash because it is gentle to the skin with deep cleansing agent.

Oil-Free Acne Wash from Walgreens is very affordable compared to other name brands. A good saving that doesn't' compromise the quality of the product because it contain the same active ingredients as other national brands.
