Potty Cover Review

When my sister needed a helping hand to take care of her daughter for a day, I volunteered. I get along well with my niece and to keep her busy, we went to mall so she can play and try the new rides. She is well-trained with cleanliness so; when we went to the bathroom, she immediately asked for a toilet seat cover. I was well-prepared because last week, I received this disposable toilet seat cover for children. It covers the sides and the front of the toilet and my niece likes it because she was comfortable.I had the chance to try this disposable toilet seat cover for my niece that day. There are 6 individually wrapped potty cover in a bag and I find it very handy as I just simply slip 2 of this in the tiny bag of my niece. The potty cover is amazingly soft; it is made of non-woven fabric with a plastic layer to keep anyone sitting on it dry. I can attest that this is really brilliant for kids. When my niece used it, the potty cover is long enough in the front to keep her legs and undies from rubbing against the toilet. The long flops on the sides also keeps her hands clean when she holds the sides for support as she sits down on the toilet. She was fussy when we went to the bathroom but, with this potty cover, she doesn’t seem to bother anymore!

When my sister took my little niece home, I gave her the remaining four pieces which she was very pleased to have. She said it is nothing like the ordinary type and would definitely buy and use it. This product is a must-have for parents. You can buy a pack of PottyCover for $5.99 at Amazon, Ebay, all Buy Buy Baby stores nationwide and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores. Check it out!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Using Miles for Flights

In all my travels, I used Continental airlines because they are affordable and their route is favorable on my part. I have no problem with few hours of lay-o-ver since I love to wander inside the airport. I travel light and I travel alone most of the time. I encountered a cancelled flight due to weather disturbance when I was in Houston and, they put me on standby the next day. Generally, I have no problem with this airline company but, sad to note that United Airline took over Continental Airline. I still have my miles and if I use 65K miles going to the Philippines or Europe, I only pay $55 for round trip. That's an amazing deal right?With continental airlines, I only pay $16 for round trip. The price went up a little bit but, it is still good. Remember to always use the card with reward miles because in the future, you will benefit the miles.

Employee Lockers

If you are a student, do you like to carry all your books at home even if you do not need them for the night? When i was in college, we have lockers but, I do not remember if I ever used one. I know that we have a locker in the ladies room but, since I was working in the school library, my preference was to leave my things in the workplace. How about you?

I was working in one of the casinos in Mississippi and I have a locker. I usually leave some things in it such as my watch and my netbook. I was blogging during my break time so; I always have my netbook with me. I love to stay in the locker room and it has a dressing area which is my favorite place to nap after lunch. I am so thankful that we have employee lockers because I can store my uniforms and my netbook. Sometimes, I go to work in casual attire and just change in the locker room. I always have extra uniform inside my locker and when I logged out, I wore casual attire again.

If your school or office does not provide you with lockers, let them know that they can purchase lockers at affordable price. Just click the link above and view thousands of quality and amazing designs of locker selections. Check it out!

Samsung 25.5 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Side-by-Side Refrigerator

The kitchen in the house that we bought was outdated and not functional so; we decided to gut it all and bring in new cabinets and new black and stainless appliances. The result is fabulous and I love this Samsung refrigerator. The Total storage capacity of this product is 25.5 cu. ft. It has twin Cooling System which controls and generates cooling air for refrigerator and freezer separately with two evaporators, two fan systems and precise electronic control.

The twin cooling system maintains right humidity and temperature levels. It has LED lighting which brightens every corner of the refrigerator and freezer.

It has external digital display and control and it shows the inside temperatures, when to change the filter as well as controls the ice and water dispenser.

It has Multi air flow and Clear View ice maker which is located directly in the freezer door.

I like the power freeze and power cool feature of this refrigerator. If the ice cream melted on the way home from the grocery, one press of a button will be return to frosty perfection within minutes. It has door alarm and it beeps to remind that the door is open.

This is an Energy Star qualified product meaning, it uses less energy while saving money. It has deep 4 tempered glass shelves, dairy compartment, 2 drawers and 5 glass shelves.

The product reviews of this refrigerator is mostly positive. So far, hubby and I like it a lot and we have so much room to store our food. The price? Just check it out in the appliance center in your area.

Panera Bread at the Mall of Millennia

One of the places that my husband and I hang out is Panera Bread at the Mall of Millennia for two reasons, food and ambiance. This mall is a bit undiscovered by the tourists so; it's not that crowded compared to Florida Mall. Panera Bread cafe' has savory soups, salads and bread and their bakery displays tempting selections of fresh bake breads, mouth-watering pastries and sweets, sandwiches and more hearty yumminess.Our favorite orders usually from cafe' soups and cafe' sandwiches such as tuna salad and creamy broccoli cheddar.I can stay for long hours here because of their WiFi and to connect is easy. Nowadays, businesses that have WiFi attracts loyalty from costumers. Friends made this location their meeting place and of course, they don't sit there and use the Internet without orders right? Somehow, they will get hungry and order so; WiFi is a plus in business.

If you plan to open a Panera Bread franchise business, take a look at the qualifications:
Must posses an experience as a multi-unit restaurant operator; recognized as a top restaurant operator; must have a net worth of $7.5 million; liquid assets should be $3 million; the infrastructure and resources must meet the company development schedule; must posses a real estate experience in the market to be developed; should have total commitment to the development of the Panera Bread brand; must be Cultural fit and must have the passion for fresh bread.

Castillo Real Resort Hotel Review

When we had a short vacation to Saint Augustine Florida, we stayed in Castillo Real Resort Hotel. This place is our saviour! We enjoyed every seconds of our 3-day stay here. We used their cozy huge pool, their relaxing jacuzzi, the comfortable room is in good size, food is great and most of all clean and tidy!When we decided to visit Saint Augustine, we just look up the pictures of the hotel and we were mesmerized by the nice building and pool of one hotel posted on a site. Without reading the reviews, we booked for it. When we arrived the location, it was an old huge building with nasty surroundings. It was located in Beach Boulevard, the first hotel on the left side. We went in and told the person at the front desk that we will look at the room first. I noticed that the lobby has nasty cages of birds. The smell in the lobby is not good at all. The inside office was a mess with cats and food trays on the floor. We glanced at the room and did not bother to go inside the room. We cancelled the reservation and we were able to pay $20 for cancellation! Bummer! How could they stay in business when they can't handle the cleanliness? Anyway, Castillo Real Resort Hotel is just few minutes drive further and thankful that they still has a room for us.Their pool is gated and every guests have the key to this facility. The place is always peace and quite. I noticed that some people left their gadgets on the umbrella table and was there the whole time. The whole facility was equipped with surveillance camera.Every afternoon after we stroll the beach or went roaming the old city of Saint Augustine, we used the pool and their jacuzzi. We just love this place. If you plan to visit Saint Augustine, you should check out this hotel.

Having a New Home

The thought of moving can be exciting for some especially when they move to a newer, bigger and ready to move in property. But, for those who loves their present home and been attached for years, moving is a bittersweet longing. No matter how you feel, having a new home is not bad at all.

Now, here's the checklist that you should do so you won't stressed out on what to do next.
*Make sure you change your address right away.
*Connect the utility connections to your name as soon as you own the house. I have the electricity account under my name and the alarm system account too. Water and cable are in the name of my hubby.
*Save all the papers associated with your new home such as contracts, sales receipts, owner's manuals, home warranty documents and etc. Including the papers on the appliances delivered. Now, I can't find the warranty paper, my bad!
*Keep track of your moving expenses since they can sometimes be tax deductible. That is right!
*Change your driver's license and vehicle information.
* Inform your friends and family that you have a new address.
*Be able to know the location of your church, libraries, community activities, local businesses and local government agencies.
*Locate the nearest hospitals in your area. Transfer your prescriptions and find a new doctor and dentist which are conveniently located in your area.
*Do not forget to register to vote in your new community.

For other related matters regarding your moving, you will get by along the way. Just don't procrastinate. Act on them now.

Biggest Fish Caught on Fishing

I lived in the Gulf Coast for two years and fishing is the common activity in the area. Fishing Contests are held and some participants came from other states. The rules are complicated at times because aside from the time constraint and the size of the fish, they have to find certain types of fish too. Registrations are mostly affordable. My friend who actually been participating in such big event says that it is not about winning. It is about self-accomplishment but of course, it will boost his self-esteem if he will one day catch the biggest fish and will be declared as the winner.

One of the best fishing destinations in the country is right here in Florida. My husband and I have our fishing gears but, we still can't find time to go fishing in our area. We just bought a house here in Cocoa and I am sure, fishing will keep us busy this summer. My husband and I are both novice anglers. I am always excited when I caught a fish in fact, I can't help myself but scream in disbelief! What if I will have the opportunity to catch species such as red fish, spotted sea trout, snook and tarpon? I would probably scream at the top of my lungs. Anyway, would you like to see the fishes caught by the happy people? Check out the link posted here. Enjoy viewing everyone.

Love to Shop at IKEA Home Furnishings

The only set back on the house that we bought is the closet. I am happy and contented with all the other parts of the house except that. Not all in the wish list will be available exactly. So, since there are 3 bedrooms, hubby gave one room as my office and my "woman cave". Sweet! Now, I am thinking IKEA!We have IKEA in Orlando but, we moved 40 minutes away from the city trying to live in a coastal area. Still, IKEA in Orlando is the nearest store that we have but, it would be hassle for us to just go there and look around.When we bought a condo almost two years ago, every time we need something in the house such as bed frame, book case, and bathroom fixtures, it was so easy to just drive down to IKEA. It's about 20 minutes from where we live. Now, it's different. Oh, I miss this store. I love their products because I love doing some DIY projects.Living in Orlando is fun because our condo is located in a good neighborhood and everything is right nearby such as the malls, Disney Parks, Seaworld, Universal Studios and more. Of course, the traffic is horrendous being one of the most traveled places in the world. That's normal but, we hate it so; we are enjoying the casual traffic along US1. Since we live by the beach, if we miss IKEA and their food, we have to schedule a trip to Orlando and pick up some other stuffs.I told hubby that we need to visit IKEA next week so I can pick up some bathroom fixtures, some cute knickknacks and storage bins. Love their collections really.We went to Orlando everyday since Monday but, got no time to go to IKEA. We had to meet our renter, make sure that the carpet guy clean the carpet well and take the last furniture out from the condo. Now, I am all set to arrange all our stuffs in the house. One trip to IKEA would be nice. I wish they will open another store right along the coast.

So Much More to Do

I thought I could finish all the necessary things needed to be done before Monday but, I was wrong. I woke up early today and tried to blog. But then again, couldn't! I need to leave the home office and hit the road to Orlando to make the condo ready for our renter next month.

Hubby and I love our condo property but, we do not miss it. We love this newly bought house that we have now.... so spacious for the two of us and located in a nice working class community. We have move in for few weeks now but, there's so much more to do.

Homeowners need to take care of the yard right? Lawn care people asked for $65/month to mow the yard but, both hubby and I does not mind mowing. We plan to buy a new electric lawn mower and we will have a DIY activity. Sounds good for us!

Well, we have another trip to Orlando tomorrow to assist the renter regarding his cable connection. I will continue to sort few things to put in the Balikbayan Box so that, by mid week, I am totally done.

Then, I can blog.....and I could earn.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!

Exciting and Fun Competition

What do you do in your free time? There are so many activities out there that will keep us busy and active. Some of us would probably spend the time with the family or hang out with friends and share an interesting activity at home. Have you gathered together and play games? Did you compete for who got the highest scores? I bet!

Once in a while, I play games online. I like puzzle games such as Sonic Gem Collector and Sonic Tetris Series. I admit that once you start playing, it's harder to quit because it is very addictive and competitive. The Mario and Sonic Zombie killer is pretty interesting to play also. Thrilling, fun and most of all, it's all free games.

My nephew started to compete with me in the scoreboard. He wanted to become the winner between us. Of course, younger generation is keen to arcade games. I let him win after all, we have a friendly competition. I must admit that he is way better than I am and he is fast too.

We do not discourage him to play online games as long as he maintains good grades in school. It keeps his mind active and can handle a situation without panic. Playing games involves patience and focus. If you apply such in real situation, chaos will never exist! Anyway, playing as a family can build a harmonious relationship. Kids will stay home and it's a positive thing right? Well, check out and browse their site for games that your family might like.
