Friendliest Country To Live

There is a belief that the grass is greener on the other side and that is why many people all over the world want to live or work away from their homes. However money is not the only factor people should consider when moving away from their home country. One should also consider if they can make new friends easily in that country, get good health benefits, find their own place to live, get their finances easily organized, finding a school for their children if they plan to bring their family. These are what they call the "integration factor."

HSBC commissioned a survey among expatriates who lived and work in different continents for years and they show which among the countries in the world is the friendliest to live and work for expatriates.

Bahrain ranks the highest while Canada on the second only, last year they were the top. However they think Bahrain's ranking was insignificant because only 35 expats from there were surveyed compared to the 450 surveyed in United Kingdom.

Movie Marathon

If you are already too tired to go out after all the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season. The best way for you to enjoy is to sit back and relax and watch a movie right inside your homes.

You can either rent, or buy some DVDs, but of course you are too lazy to do that because your damn to tired to move your ass and go out. Well, if you have a PC and internet connection that is reliable you can Download Torrents of movies you want to watch. Just make sure you have the name of the movie you want figured out and you are good to go.

I think most of the movie that were shown already has torrents. Even the movies that have not been shown in your country but were shown in other countries can be found in there, all you have to do is type in the movie name and hit search and wish there is a nice file uploaded.

Some torrent files are good while some have poor quality so make sure to check the quality of the movies you are going to download before you do. My sister has a number of movies and tv sitcom downloaded and the quality is really good.

Don't forget Push and Avatar on your movie marathon list.

Clean-up Software

I'll be reformatting my computer soon because it's ridiculously slow lately. I guess because I have too many unnecessary files stored cluttering my PCs memory. But before I do that I need to sort out files, rename folders and deleted files that are duplicated but this will be a hard task. I will also be installing new windows, probably a Windows 7 and will be getting another stick of RAM.

I want to try out this free duplicate file finder software to make my computer clean-up easier. It can find repeated files saved and you can immediately select which file you want deleted without without any hassle.

However I am kinda apprehensive using this Clone Remover program because most of the files I have are photos and I don't want to lose them because they can never be replaced. They are memories of the past captured.

Call me the modern day pack rack but I won't let go of a photograph. If I lose my memory and want to take a glimpse of my life pictures will be very handy for me to see who I was, who were my friends, and what made me happy at a certain point in my life.

I wish someone could give me a feedback on how this thing works so I can have an easy clean-up of my files and PC.

Driving Lessons

Looks like I'm gonna take driving lessons soon because everyday is getting harder to commute when we go out with my senior mom and my growing special girl. I was so exhausted yesterday when we went to watch AVATAR on IMAX because of the long lines and traffic we have to endure just to get home.

I'm just worried that if I indeed learn how to drive, get a car and drive along Metro Manila streets that I would also need to learn basic car maintenance thingy in case of emergency. Would I still need a Motor Trade Insurance or something like that? I don't have a clue. Or maybe just get a driver and mechanic to do all the complicated things for me. Blah. Sorry just thinking out loud.

Good Night Sleep

Sleep is the best beauty routine anyone could ever have. Lack of it will make your skin dry and your mood not so great. You will also experience low energy level and lack of concentration.

But since we all live in a fast phased world and sleep is a luxury especially to moms like me who juggle her time and we are almost like sleeping in metal beds where we wake so easily with small noises from our kids we need help from vitamins and anti-aging stuff to keep our sanity and beauty intact! Stress tabs and a lot of eating lots of fruits can help.

I Feel Great

After winning the fitnesse challenge more and more people come to me and asked how did my team do it. Most of them were moms who were like me and two of my team mates who were having a hard time getting back the usual shape they have when they were still single. Some would even consider Liposuction just to get rid of the ugly bulges around the waist and tummy that is the problem area of most moms like me have.

I feel great because my team now serves as an inspiration to many moms and women out there who wants to lose weight. That there is a simple way to lose weight and not hurt yourself, starve yourself or even go under the knife but by just eating right.

Never Go Under The Knife

Before I joined the Nestle Fitnesse challenge I was doing all sort of things to shrink my bulging belly. I tried the diet tea that will make you go visit the toilet frequently. I tried wearing "hot" pants to sweat all the fats away. I do sit-ups three times a day. Drank all those L-carnetine rich drink to speed-up my metabolism but none of them gave me the result I am happy about. I was almost ready to get a tummy tuck. Thank goodness for this challenge. Indeed fashion is the best motivation to lose weight. I lost 2.6 lbs in 2 weeks and that is mostly the fats around my waist. I recommend everyone to try this cereal diet coz it really works.

Gold And Pearl Jewelry To Tame A Cranky Wife

I learned something a couple days ago when almost everyone around me was grumpy. I learned that the people's response to you is a reflection of how you respond to them. Like if they were grumpy to you and you respond cranky to them then that will spark a huge argument and misunderstanding. To avoid such you should respond not according to how they acted but how you want the situation turn out to be.

If they are being annoying or irritating respond cold or detached with their anger and keep repeating to yourself that "My good mood will not be affected by your good mood" then leave if you can. If you can't just hold their hand or embrace them and tell them "You look so cute when you are cranky."

But it also depends on who was being irritable and your relationship to them. If it's the husband and wife a gold and pearl jewelry will do the trick! Oriental pearls sells fresh water and cultured pearls at half the price you get from jewelry store because you don't have to pay for the middleman's fee. All jewelries sold here are authentic and of high quality that will truly get the nod of your wife.
