When My Memory Escapes Me

I've been accident prone lately or I am being too clumsy and careless? Either or I am so thankful that blog helps me keep the good memories in one place and read them back and see how happy the experience was.

I realized that everything is fleeting. You have to live by the moment and not for the future. Because you can never tell when you will be gone and how long will your memory will last.

When you can't have something you want let it go, if it's meant for you to have you don't have to work so hard to get it. It will find it's way to you. Now I understand this cliche saying "If you love someone set them free, if it's your they will come back, if it doesn't it never was."

Fence Protection

The fence on our second floor roof deck is slowly rotting away I guess because the fence panels were not treated so they easily ruin.

It's either the carpenters my mom hired to do the job were not really that knowledgeable or my mom was being her usual thrifty self thinking that neglecting such small process will save her money.

But I think it's the first one. I haven't seen any carpenters around here that have the proper equipment like Fence Sprayer. This machine is the quickest and easiest way to treat fence panels. They are cordless and battery operated that can be taken anywhere. It also does not require any pumping or charging and will enable you to treat up to 40 fence panels. This machine is more efficient than doing the manual treatment as it covers the surfaces evenly.


Perks of Blogging

After taking a back seat from work because I have to stay home more often because of my daughter's condition my social life halted big time and I felt my life was boring. For someone who has enjoyed work and loved the work I did leaving it was not easy. But of course someone has to do it.

I Thank God that I found blogging, public blogging, social blogging and paid blogging. I am still able to do what I love, write, socialize, go to places and get paid doing it.

I am not yet at par with the probloggers when it comes to income but from someone who just started making income with my blog this August I think I am ahead than the usual phase. I am so thankful for this and for my mom who has been supportive of me to help me watch over my daughter when I have events to attend to.


Look Great Inspite Of The Crisis

The economic recession has slowed down most businesses in the world. Some are already in a depressed mood and some don't feel like looking good at these times because some would think it's inappropriate to look expensive these days. But who said looking good is equal to being expensive?

You don't need to buy new clothes all the time, all you have to do is invest on good accessories that will compliment all the clothing you already have in your wardrobe to create different looks.

For women you can invest in a number of scarves in different colors. Did you know there are 101 ways to wear a scarf? Or have a pair of those gladiator inspired shoes it's the in thing this summer but can also be worn in not so cold days with your dress, shorts, jeans or pants.

For men they can have a stock of ties with varying designs. Or they could invest in one or two piece of mens designer clothing that can be mixed and matched with the rest of the collection of clothes they already have in their closet.

The trick is to know how to mix and match your clothes so it will appear that you have tons of clothes even if you only have a few. Browse over fashion sites so you can see the latest trends and how you can play with a piece of accessory or clothing you have.


Not Just For The Numismatist

Coins are something numismatist definitely love collecting but these lovely coins I found is something that will not only interest them but other smart investors around the world. They are not only rare items but something that can get a country by during an unstable economy.

What am I talking about? I am talking about gold, gold coins even more precious than gold bullion .


Gold Coin Gain have gold coins that date back to 1840 like the $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle that was considered by many as one of the most beautiful coins ever created. Aside from it's breathtaking looks investors secretly acquire this gold coin which was said to have outperformed gold bullion. Today it is sold for $2,350 a piece.

You can also find the Australian Gold Nugget which is minted in eight different denominations an now is sold for $1025.01 a piece here. They are created in Perth Mint in Western Australia and is one of their most popular coins.

Honestly, the gold coins here are not just for numismatist it is also for investors who want to have one of the world's most liquid investment. The market for gold never closes and you can buy gold and sell gold anywhere in world.

My Memories Of SM City North Edsa



Last weekend I was invited to see the new look of the first mall I ever visited in my life, SM City North EDSA that was built in 1985. I was amazed by the latest innovation and pleased with how they created a shoppers corner in the sky with The Sky Garden. I so love it.

It's above everything especially of the noise and the smog at the ground level, as SM North is at the edge of the busy street of EDSA going to the Northern part of the country.

Lush greenery, wonderful waterworks and a string of specialty food stores and shop are available at the Sky Garden and it will be open from 7AM to 2AM. Read more about this latest innovation of SM Supermalls The Sky Garden.

Mischievous Child

I wish my parents had more than three children. I wish that we are six or twelve so I have someone with me right now to help me out fixing the house. My mom is too old to help me move the furniture around although she is still very strong and energetic for her age. My daugther is not available for such task yet, but I would be training her real soon for all the house chores. She can pack away and wipe the floors when prodded. But other major task like washing the dishes, doing the laundry, change the curtains and so on and so forth is something she could not grasp yet.

When I was a child at her age though I can do all those things. I even watch my dad do simple carpentry like fix or install electrical stuff, do simple carpentry and even fixing the roof when it leaks. He was like a pro from Phoenix Roofer doing the job.

Because of my curiosity, he left a mark on my right hand. A cigarette butt mark because I was squeezing myself wherever he goes and watch him do whatever he has to do. Accidentally he was shaking the cigar and my hand met the cigarette so here remains the mark of my mischievousness that I think my daugther got from me.

Detach and Ignore

You can either view those two words negatively or you can view them in a more productive and positive light.

When one is too attached at a situation, place or thing, it is very hard for him to let it go. When you detach yourself from the emotion and materialism you will be free from all burdens and you will live happy.

If one gives importance to every little situation, place or thing, pleasing or annoying, one tends to get affected very easily. You have to ignore the annoying once and do not place too much regard on the pleasure then you will thread life lightly free from all burdens and cares.





Safe To Sail

October 2008 was the last time I heard about the sunken MV Princess of the Stars in Sibuyan, Romblon where more than 800 people died and only less that 500 were recovered. It was a sad experience for everyone involved, especially for the families for their loss.

An accident will always be an accident, nobody wanted this to happen. Although most claimed if the captain did not brace to face the storm that fateful June 2008 they would have been alive. However there were issues afloat that aside from human error the changes made to the ship was one of the reasons it sank. The modifications they did to it made the vessel unfit to sail.

There is a law that require all modifications should be reported to the Marine authorities including installation of Marine Accessories on a ship. Even small repairs or replacements of any Marine Parts should always be scrutinized. The government needs to be assured that they are of top caliber and pass the quality standards. I'm sure if the parts are from Stemtostern they will assured of it's quality.

Another reason why so many died in this accident was the lack of boats and life jacket around. I could imagine the movie Titanic in this one.



What Happens In Vegas

My mom always wanted to go to Las Vegas because her sister lives there. We have seen so many pictures and videos about the place and my mom wanted to experience everything my aunt has. My aunt promotes the place so much that even I would like to see the place. I wanted to see the famous Las Vegas shows and get in to those famous Casinos and experience night life in there.

I know we wouldn't need to book into any hotel when we get there but just in case I will be checking out the smartervegas.com. They have special promotions in there that will get you booked in the hotel directly no agency or no middle men involved so I will be assured that the price is lower than going through an agent. The best thing is most of the offers are fully refundable.

I Want A Direct TV Gadget

It's been awhile since I was able to watch all my favorite TV shows that I can only watch via cable TV subscription. The company offering such service here decided to cut their lines since there are too many crooks along the way that steals their signal bankrupting them.

I wish there were companies here that offers direct tv service. Aside from cable I think that is the only they can use without using cables. I heard direct tv service is really good because it can pick-up a lot of channels that will enable you to watch all of your favorite cable shows from HBO to F1 races.

They sell these gadgets at Quiapo before but the DOTC raided the place because of complaints of cable companies because their subscriptions went down because some went on getting these. I can't blame them a one time fee is better than having a monthly subscription.

Make Your Own Vegetables And Livestock

With so many type of diseases and viruses spreading around, I couldn't help but either be paranoid or simply ignore the things I hear and just leave it to faith if I am bound to get ill and die. Hah! But of course when it comes to my daughter I always want the best for her and so it leaves me to worrying what is not and what is safe for her to eat.


Although our Department of Health assured us that we are still swine flu free and we were not hit by the bird flue just recently I guess the best way to go is grow your own food. If you have spare space on your backyard then just make your own vegetable garden and livestock. If you don't have backyard then convert your laundry area or garage and build a chicken coop using this chicken coop plans.


Green Roof Chicken CoopChicken Coop Plan


Don't worry! This things is safe and easy to clean and it guarantees your hens to lay more eggs and grow healthy for your personal consuption. You don't have to worry about the smell too because they cover the odor naturally.

Wisdom from Lee Kuan Yew's Daughter

"In 2007, in an end-of-year message to the staff of the National Neuroscience Institute, Associate Professor Lee Wei Ling, daughter of Lee Kuan Yew, the Minister Mentor, a director in the institute, wrote:

'Whilst boom time in the public sector is never as booming as in the private sector, let us not forget that boom time is eventually
followed by slump time. Slump time in the public sector is always less painful compared to the private sector.'

Slump time has arrived with a bang.

While I worry about the poorer Singaporeans who will be hit hard, perhaps this recession has come at an opportune time for many of us. It will give us an incentive to reconsider our priorities in life.

Decades of the good life have made us soft. The wealthy especially, but also the middle class in Singapore , have had it so good for so long, what they once considered luxuries, they now think of as necessities.

A mobile phone, for instance, is now a statement about who you are, not just a piece of equipment for communication.. Hence many people buy the latest model though their existing mobile phones are still in perfect working order.

A Mercedes-Benz is no longer adequate as a status symbol. For millionaires who wish to show the world they have taste, a Ferrari or a Porsche is deemed more appropriate.

The same attitude influences the choice of attire and accessories. I still find it hard to believe that there are people carrying handbags that cost more than thrice the monthly income of a bus driver, and many more times that of the foreign worker labouring in the hot sun, risking his life to construct luxury condominiums he will never have a chance to live in.

The media encourages and amplifies this ostentatious consumption. Perhaps it is good to encourage people to spend more because this will prevent the recession from getting worse. I am not an economist, but wasn't that the root cause of the current crisis - Americans spending more than they could afford to?

I am not a particularly spiritual person. I don't believe in the supernatural and I don't think I have a soul that will survive my death. But as I view the crass materialism around me, I am reminded of what my mother once told me: 'Suffering and deprivation is good for the soul.'

My family is not poor, but we have been brought up to be frugal. My parents and I live in the same house that my paternal grandparents and their children moved into after World War II in 1945. It is a big house by today's standards, but it is simple - in fact, almost to the point of being shabby.

Those who see it for the first time are astonished that Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew's home is so humble. But it is a comfortable house, a home we have got used to. Though it does look shabby compared to the new mansions on our street, we are not bothered by the comparison.

Most of the world and much of Singapore will lament the economic downturn. We have been told to tighten our belts. There will undoubtedly be suffering, which we must try our best to ameliorate.

But I personally think the hard times will hold a timely lesson for many Singaporeans, especially those born after 1970 who have never lived through difficult times. No matter how poor you are in Singapore , the authorities and social groups do try to ensure you have shelter and food.

Nobody starves in Singapore .

Many of those who are currently living in mansions and enjoying a luxurious lifestyle will probably still be able to do so, even if they might have to downgrade from wines costing $20,000 a bottle to $10,000 a bottle. They would hardly notice the difference.

Being wealthy is not a sin. It cannot be in a capitalist market economy.. Enjoying the fruits of one's own labour is one's prerogative and I have no right to chastise those who choose to live luxuriously. But if one is blinded by materialism, there would be no end to wanting and hankering. After the Ferrari, what next? An Aston Martin? After the Hermes Birkin handbag, what can one upgrade to?

Neither an Aston Martin nor an Hermes Birkin can make us truly happy or contented. They are like dust, a fog obscuring the true meaning of life, and can be blown away in the twinkling of an eye.

When the end approaches and we look back on our lives, will we regret the latest mobile phone or luxury car that we did not acquire?? Or would we prefer to die at peace with ourselves, knowing that we have lived lives filled with love, friendship and goodwill, that we have helped some of our fellow voyagers along the way and that we have tried our best to leave this world a slightly better place than how we found it?

We know which is the correct choice - and it is within our power to make that choice. In this new year, burdened as it is with the problems of the year that has just ended, let us again try to choose wisely. To a considerable degree, our happiness is within our own control, and we should not follow the herd blindly."

Always Have A Back-up

What will you do if you live alone and you lost your home keys? Will you tear down your door locks or call a locksmith to the rescue?

Did you know that the oldest form of security engineering was locksmithing? Locksmithing is the art and science of defeating and making locks. I don't know if there are vocational schools offering this course but finding a professional locksmith like those of Kansas City Locksmith can be hard these days.

I guess its because people are now paranoid lately. It's hard to trust people you barely know specially with your keys and locks especially if those locks and keys are for your important documents, valuable items or your homes. We would never know if they will not make a copy of your lock or mark your homes as a target for their next "operation". The possibilities are endless, one will never know if a person is trustworthy or not. It's sad that the world has come to this when you always have to watch your back.

The important lesson is always keep a back-up of your important documents, keys and stuff so that you will have options when you lost the other.

Enjoying Arts and Pottery Safely

One of my favorite subject when I was still in school was all my Art subject. It is where I get to express myself freely and where I get to create beautiful things with my hands.

I like to play with crayons, pastel colors, water colors, art papers, pencil and paint and also like doing some crafts with any material that the teacher requires. One of my favorite things to do was pottery although the best thing I created was a big soup bowl, I was proud I was able to make one.

Pottery is such a fun and messy art that I would like my daughter to try if I could get some pottery supply from AMACO/Brent. They provide non-toxic lead free clay materials and glazes suitable for my daughters age.

It will be great if I can teach her to love art and create something with her hands instead of breaking them which is her habit right now. It would be great if we could have this air dry clays and use dry glazes on them and display them in the house after their done.

AMACO/Brent is one of the leading suppliers of clay and glazes that is safe for kids
of all ages. Their products are non-toxic lead free glazes that can be used for chilJustify Fulldren in grades K-12 and lead free glazes that are suitable for children in grades 7-12. But of course they recommend an adult supervision whenever children use clay and glazes. The also have other art supplies like brushes and molds for sculpture making. Prices are very affordable and they have a hundreds of their products listed including the price.

However, Grand Canyon isn't the only thing to remarkable to visit at Arizona. Arizona's capital Phoenix being the 6th largest city in the U.S. is the cultural mecca of the state.

Student Loans

Latest data from the Department of Education show that the drop-out rates continue to soar due to the high tuition rates. Parents could no longer afford paying for their kids education so they are forced to ask them not to go to school. While some opt to work instead of studying.

In spite of available scholarship grants and the free education from public schools that is not enough to keep a student stay in school. Aside from schooling a child needs school supplies, uniform, food and other miscellaneous too.

It's crazy to know that the tuition of Pre schoolers is as expensive as paying for University studies. Parents could not help but apply for Student Loans to help them out. For scholar college students who are able to work while studying they can apply for Private Student Loans or College Loans. Terms and conditions will apply of course but at least there is some place they can run to if they want to pursue their education. Good luck!



Some Landscaping In The Condo

The condo we got through housing loan is big, it has two verandas and I was thinking if I could put some nice landscaping in one of them or even both. Just something nice and quaint to make the place a little refreshing and relaxing. I am just worried that my daughter will mess with though 'coz she is my little home wrecker.

Anyway the Chicago Landscaper inspired me with this idea. They can create a lasting landscape for my home and they also do free estimates. There are good landscapers from the UP Kalayaan area I saw some of their work too, maybe I will try to contact them and see what they can do with the little space that I have.

My developer said that we just need to inform them whenever a construction will be done to our place so that they can secure the place and make sure that no damage or any property will be taken or get lost.

I was also thinking of having some nice landscaping in our bathrooms I want to copy the idea of Blue Water Spa they made a very simple design out of stones and lights. The effect appeared that everyone walking inside is under the deep blue sea. Dramatic and simplistic.

Tell Me What Are You Thinking?


"Worries, Worries, and more worries. This seems to be the consensus of more and more women these days in regards to where their partners eyes are and what they are thinking. I deal with more emotional issues from women in regards to this issue than not."

"Women all want to be the center of their partners attention. They also want to know exactly where he is looking and what he is thinking. But to what degree are we going to continue to imprison ourselves in the thought, where is he looking and what is he thinking? I have done a ton of research regarding the male mind and their inability to not look. They simply are just lookers /observers. Men are visual creatures and women these days work very hard at looking good. Notice how the media has also worked on us women to create these competitions amongst each other. How else can they sell their wrinkle and beauty products and make the millions of dollars on cosmetic surgery that they do these days? It's all out there! Morals have taken a back seat to making money. The innocent ones are the ones that suffer, as usual. I know I repeat this fact in just about everything I write, but it is the one fact that we must start to look at. WE are allowing the media to dictate and/or control our self-worth."

"In some relationships, I believe that a partner will get away with what they can. It is human to error. It's sad but true. From the day we are born we are challenging life and seeing what we can get away with. In any relationship, there will always be someone trying to get away with things. This may or may not be a conscious thought. As I said, we are only human."


"For a lot of men, staring at other women is really, a very bad habit. The men that do not do this, will agree that they are just plain rude and disrespectful. To know that one's partner is hurting or uncomfortable in a situation, but continues regardless of how they feel, is purely selfish, disrespectful and very mindless. For the man that degrades his partner, and falls for all the unrealistic images that Hollywood is telling him is the real thing, is truly as small minded as his penis. Harsh words, yes. but well deserving at the same time. This must be brought to the for-front immediately."

"Pornography is an absurd example to what real life sex should be like. It is abuse of another kind and it degrades men as well as women. It is cheap and very addicting. Pornography is like any other negative sexual device being offered to the world for money. It is destruction of reality and it is a persons choice to look or not too look. It is their choice to degrade themselves when taking part in pornography. It is their choice to truly understand and follow through on their commitment to their partner. It is also their choice to be all alone, wanted by no one that is real. These are all negative habits that a person can change if they want to."

Why do so many women feel that their partners are in fact being disrespectful? Why do so many men scream that they are NOT being disrespectful?

"There are millions of women that are battling this worry of where he is looking and what is he thinking. Most women continue to maintain their relationships and deal with life as best they can. Other women spend countless hours reading and paying therapists to tell them they are not crazy or imagining things. Couples spend way to much time debating this issue and always end up at square one. Both men and women need to work together and change their habits. Women must stop allowing their own insecurities to magnify their partners gestures and reactions which only results in a negative control over their happiness. Men must try to be more aware of what exactly triggers off their partners worries and not take her reactions so defensively."

"This does NOT say that women are to bow down & ignore what is obvious disrespect in some cases, but we need to really look at just how serious their looks are and how serious we are taking them. To allow a man's actions to effect how we see ourselves, is a definite mistake on our part. It is up to us to feel good about ourselves, no one else. It is very hard when we care what someone thinks about us. We tend to use that as our happiness meter. Too many women are allowing the weaknesses of men to determine their happiness and self-worth. We are real people and yes we have stretch marks and we have life wrinkles..which are as much a part of us as our curves. These characteristics are what make us that much more unique. For these men that think it is all about the poster girl, I feel very sorry for them. They are losing out on so much of the good, genuine, real stuff. Our own self-acceptance is the key in being able to overcome so many of the little things that we cannot change. That is why we must work on knowing ourselves and knowing that we are a special, unique person."

I am going to play the devils advocate here for a bit.
Men Say:

We look, yes but that's all.

It's not like we want to have sex with them.

Women worry about everything.

Women are always jealous of other women.

Women get mad at us when another women happens to catch our eye.

We do not go into strip bars to see girls, we go to talk to the guys.

We cannot help it if there are scantily dressed women serving us at that restaurant.

Its only a picture.

Women are immature when they try to stop us having fun.

Guys should be able to go to bars with their friends.

Guys don`t discuss woman's body parts when they are hanging out together.

If women trusted us, we should be able to go anywhere.

Alcohol does not make us flirtatious.

We married them, so what more do they want?

Women say:

He is looking at her and wishes I looked like her.

He is undressing her in his mind.

He is doing this to make me worry.

I wish I looked like her.

Why does he have to look every time a pretty girl walks past?

Men could also go to the do-nut shop to talk.

Men do not have to choose restaurants that advertise scantily dressed women waitresses.

We want to be our men's fun.

Bars are not for married people unless they are there together.

Men are always looking and discussing female body parts.

We do trust, but we also feel a thing called respect for them. Some places that men go are not respectable.

Alcohol makes everyone a bit more lose and flirtatious.

There is more to marriage than just saying we are married...that bottom line is very old.

"These are just a few oppositions that men and women deal with. We definitely think on a different wave length. We see things differently and we feel differently about certain issues also. That's what makes us men and women. The trick in being able to live together and respecting each other, is to understand that we are different and also to be able to make compromises for our partner's happiness. After all, is that not what its all about? Making each other happy!"

"Where he is looking or what he is thinking is an issue that will not be fixed in one article or even ten. But as long as we work at it and continue to communicate with each other, we will eventually find a common ground."

A Week Of Bliss

If I could afford it, I would like to have a week of vacation in one of the prime vacation spots in the world. A place where every recreation facilities is available and a place where everything I could possibly need is beyond reach. Somewhere I can feel I own the place and not just any tourist. Hilton Head rings a bell when this kind of resort comes to mind specifically the Hilton Head Island.

The Hilton Head vacation rentals has a week of package stored for everyone. Their vacation planner can customize your stay for you depending on your preference and budget.

You can choose to stay in one of their fantastic beachside or ocean front properties and be stunned with the beautiful view of the sun set and sunrise. Or stay in a charming and historical setting that is ideal for those who want to just relax and watch the sun set into the water.

Pursue A Career As A Nutritionist

Dietitian and Nutritionist are two separate things. A Dietitian is required to pass a licensing exam and become a Registered Dietitian (RD) and more often than not work at a hospital or clinical setting. A Nutritionist does not require a licensing exam and can take a four year course and work in a more wholelistic setting like a nutrition consultant or chef at a spa or wellness center.

Natural healers provide more information about the distinction between the two and some guide where to get a nutrition degree. I think nutritionist are in demand lately specially with the people being conscious about their health and wellness.

Taking Care Of My Mails

I'm so excited about moving out soon but at the same time I feel exhausted already thinking about organizing and sorting all the things that needs to be packed away and the things that will be thrown away. I feel the same way about doing the interiors in our new home and shopping for new home appliances, furniture and accessories.

I think it will take about three months before everything will be in place and so I am thinking of getting a mailbox that I will place beside the doorway so I can change my mailing info to the condo and start receiving letters in there.

I found a lot of beautiful and high quality Mailboxes on sale online right now and there are wonderful selections to choose from like the choices they have on wall mounted mailboxes and column mailboxes. They all look durable and rust proof and are fit for use as residential mailboxes and even for commercial use. Most of them are handcrafted and with lock so I am assured to have my mail safe and the mailbox tamper free.

I'm placing my orders now, one for the new home and the other for the old place so I can get it in time before the move in.

Medicine For Pain

Here in the Philippines getting an over-the-counter medicine for minor pains like headache, muscle ache or back ache is very easy. It is also easy for us to get a doctors appointment whenever we need one for unbearable pains that could not be remedied by these over-the-counter medicines. But for the people in the U.S. and other countries they are very strict in these kind of medications. Getting a doctors appointment will take days to even weeks or months. Although there is an option to go the the E.R.

It's very inconvenient especially for someone who lives alone or does not have an access to a nearby hospital. Well you can Buy Online Tramadol - if you want cheaper medication and you don't need prescription to get one (click here to buy tramadol).

But of course before buying and using unprescribed medicines you should learn more about it to see if it's safe and effective like the one provided about tramadol - redorbit.com. It's always best to research about a product first before buying and using it to be on the safe side right so go ahead and browse that and see if it suits you.

The East Won Over The West : Pacman Won, KO Hatton 2 Rounds

The War of the Worlds, the Fight of the East and West, was over and of course as you guessed the Eastern won! Great job Manny Pacman Pacquiao, the new Light Welterweight champion.

Imagine having knocked out Ricky Hitman Hatton for three times in a course of two rounds! He got knocked out thrice in the first round and the last knock out was on the 2nd round where Hatton was down on his side.Pacquiao almost stamped his fist on Hattons jaws in this fight.

Pacman indeed is worthy of the title Best Fighter in the World!

The Art Of Merchandising

I wanted to own a business particularly one that involves anything about fashion and beauty. I always believe that women will find a way to buy a good deal or anything that will provide them that high of buying something that will help them look and feel good.

However I am wary because I don't have much knowledge about merchandising. I know what I want, but sometimes what I want is something that others won't. When it comes to merchandising and sale you have to think about what the customer will like.

The examples provided at the Hurlburtassociates.com will give you a closer look about what I mean. They explained their personal experience as a retail buyer and started at men's sportwear.

As a seller some will think that buying all items and all possible option a customer might want will guarantee a sale. But from experience he learned that it did not matter if you bought items by four, six, eight or ten colors, because the best four colors would sell well, and the other colors would require markdowns to finally sell through. So it is always best to buy items that are popular than get as many color options as possible.

If you want to know more about merchandising and retail you can visit their site, they have lots of good information you might need to be successful in this industry.

Their site also talks about:
* Inventory Management
* Sales Planning
* Seasonal Planning
* Customer Service
* Vendor Management
* Internet Marketing

Or you can get in touch with them by calling 774-215-0190 they offer free telephone consultation and will tell you their perspective on your present retail management issues and concerns.

Beach Trend

Is there a way you can disguise an ugly scar or stretch mark while enjoying strolling under the beautiful sun at the beach?

Well, one could use the very trusted bandanna or scarf or wear some nice chiffon summer dress or use body make-up to cover them. But that could smear off when you dip in the water.

A great idea is to wear some henna tattoo or real tattoo if you are that brave. They are very common these days and are very nice to look at so even if you have unsightly stretch marks or scar on certain area you can dress it up with a tattoo.

If you want more ideas on how to wear a tattoo you can simply join this tattoo chat room, I'm sure the people from here have more ideas about strutting a tattoo. You can even ask them to create a design for you that will suit your personality. There are hundreds of tattoo enthusiast in there that you can talk to and the membership is free.

Handy Kitchen Appliances

One of the most common kitchen appliances being raffled off during Christmas parties here are oven toasters and I am one of the lucky ones to have won one more than five years ago. I'd like to say that I love this appliances because of its versatility and I think everyone should own one too.

I am now on the process of buying a new one because the old one got broken the lights are now busted and I have no idea how to replace them or where to take it for repair. This toaster ovens ratings site has been a helpful tool for me to find the best one to buy depending on my budget.


PC Problems

My PC has been running really slow lately and I encounter more errors than before. Even my internet loads slow and I usually blame my internet service provider for this. But I was told that it got something to do with the corrupted registry of my PC and that registry cleaners can help me solve this issues I am having lately. I'll definitely take a look at it and see if my PC will do better this time. Maybe you should try it too. Good luck to us.

Happy Birthday!


You are like a star, I can see you but I can not touch you.
I wish you are no longer a star and just be my pillow, so I can always hold you close at night.
I love you!
Happy Birthday!

A Trip To Las Vegas

My Aunt lives in Las Vegas and she has been there for more than 20 years. She went here for a visit early this year in hopes to stay here longer. After my Uncle died she would rather be here near her relatives and friends than be alone in the U.S. filled with memories of her husband who passed away.

My Uncle used to love watching Manny Pacquiao's fights since they just live near the area. My Aunt is inviting us for a visit there and enjoy the night life in there especially the casinos and to watch some Las Vegas Shows.

She said she can book a ticket for these shows for us there or just through this website. I can also browse more information about Las Vegas and see the places we would like to visit in the future. She already showed us a lot of great images about the place since she is also a picture junkie like me. I think its in the genes. I would love to play some game of chance in their famous Casinos there and see that wonderful dancing fountain at night, that would be something my daughter would love!
