Body Workout at Home

Ive been planning to have a full body workout at the gym but I find it hard do it for several reasons. One of the reasons is that nobody will take care and look for my daughter while I am out since my hubby is managing our business. I like  to work out at the gym because I have the access to a wider variety of equipment and I can the have access to trained professionals to teach me how to use the equipment properly. But since its impossible for me to do it, I choose to work out at home. I think it would be much better because I can have some privacy, I can work out anytime, there will be no schedule for my work outs, I don't have to go outdoors, and best of all, I can look out for my daughter. However, in order for me to successfully have the best home exercise, I need to carefully select the best home gym equipment because it allows me to perform several types of exercises on one piece of equipment, which is also suitable for me at various levels of physical fitness, and is eas

Feeding The Children

Last Friday, we had our outreach program from our church were we fed the children from our Barangay. We prepared a porridge loaded with vita meal which is composed of rice, mongo, lentils, and beans. It was donated by the American missionaries purposely in helping kids from malnutrition. Telling kids some Bible stories Teaching them some songs and dancing moves Feeding time Bon Appetit! with fellow church members It was truly an unforgettable experience for us. I know this is not the end but this is the beginning of our feeding ministry in helping those hungry children . We are not only focusing on their physical needs but most importantly, it is our way in helping them to get closer to God as well their families too. 

SponsoredReviews Payment Problem

I signed up on SponsoredReviews a few months ago and I already made several paid posts from advertisers who wants to review and promote their products and services. I have $25.00 current earnings in my account and I have been waiting for this payment for more than 2 months now and I still did not receive it through my Paypal account. I already sent a support ticket asking them when it will be cashed out because I waited for several weeks during its releasing of payment. From what I understood on their payment release, they pay every 2 weeks or on a bi-weekly basis for reviews completed in that 2 week period. They said that I will be paid within 14 days of submitting the completed review URL. Judy, one of the customer service staff replied to my message and said that she is not sure why I haven't received payment. Before payment is issued all completed reviews must be live. They are all redirecting this and she said that it must be corrected immediately. Well, I just hope that

Want to Learn How to Speak Swiss German Language

My mom actually knows how to speak several languages like Swiss German, French, Italian and Spanish. She went to a language school just to study Swiss German language when she worked in Switzerland. How I wish I could be like her who knows how to speak and even write multilingual languages. I have a half sister and brother who cannot speak and understand English well that's why when I am trying to talk to them, I always call my mom to let her translate what I am trying to say to them so my mom decided to help me to learn how to speak Swiss German language using an audio language program . It is a unique audio method that allows the listener to learn pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar without repetitive rote learning, in a similar way to how we acquired our native language components.  I actually know how to speak a little from their basic words but I am eager to learn how to speak their language so I can communicate well from my siblings and hopefully soon when

A Guide Book in Losing Weight

I think most of my mommy blogging friends are having the same problem like I do on how to lose their weight. I just hate the fact that every time I see some long lost friends or relatives,they would immediately say I look so fat already and I should lose my weight! I know that I am fat and they don't need to tell me that. Ive tried diet pills, it worked for me but when I stopped taking it, my cravings for food are also starting so I find it hard to lose weight because I am also lazy in doing some exercise. However, right now I am trying my best to control what I eat and I need to overcome my laziness in doing some exercise. A friend of mine referred me to this Fat Burning Furnace Program which is a guidebook in weight loss. The book contains an exercise program, explanations of the fat burning methods used including exactly how and why they work, and education on foods, diet and nutrition. I think it is a better and natural way to lose weight since this a solid weight loss plan

Ice Cream Overload

O is for Overload! Oh I miss this yummy Ice Cream Overload called Titanic Treat from Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant. It's a big bowl of different flavored ice cream, fruits, brownies, chocolate chips and cookies.  Are you drooling now? so am I! lol!  I'm linking this entry for ABC Wednesday

Furniture Removal Company

Ever since I was a kid, we always keep on transferring and moving from one place to another because we don't have our own house. I just hate it every time we are planning to move. The hassles, the inconvenience, the tiresome job of keeping, packing and placing our things to our newly rented home. I remember when my grandmother died and I have to pursue my college degree in another city, I needed to transfer from one city to another and I find it hard to find a moving truck.  Good thing my cousin has a friend who offered to rent their truck but it was not that huge and I felt so sad because some of our furniture and other things was left because it can't be fit on the truck anymore.It's a long mile travel and its so expensive to hire them again to pick up the things I left from our previous rented house. And the worst part, some of my things like my bed and my appliances were damaged when we arrived on my newly rented house because it was raining at that time

Router Problem

Lately, we are having some problems of our internet connection. We are trying to check out and ping the status of our connection and found out that its not our internet provider's fault but its our router.  My hubby has been trying to fix it and here's what he usually do: 1. Power Reset by unplugging the power to both router and PC 2. While having the power unplugged for a few seconds. 3. Reconnect the power plug and try to connect to the network again 4. If the problem still persists, reset the Router to Factory default settings, usually a small button in back of the router. As of now we are still observing this problem because this may be due to overload use. If it comes back all over again, I think its time for us to buy a new router.

Family Picnic

It was sort of a family picnic when we went to the cemetery to visit my mother in law. It was her 1st Death anniversary last October 21st.  We prepared lots of yummy and delicious foods like pancit bihon, marinated raw fish (kinilaw), grilled fish and pork menudo (the red orange colored viand). See that red case of Coke Litro and the red plastic plate too?  I'm linking this entry for Ruby Tuesday

Infrared Saunas, Have You Tried It?

Nowadays, saunas are seen everywhere. They are regular features in hotels, private clubs and even at home. Saunas have many health benefits. Sauna bathing also helps maintain a healthy skin and a clear complexion. It helps in the growth and development of cells in our body and brings essential nutrients to the skin. It increases the rate of blood flow, which in turn enhances the production of collagen. Infrared sauna heaters have became increasingly popular in recent years because they provide a passive means in which we can lose excess body weight, shed those unsightly pounds as well as improve our circulation and do so with a bare minimum of exertion on our part.  Infrared saunas are for the most part safe, and they make many people feel good. Using an infrared sauna safely mostly is a matter of common sense and when it is used sensibly, infrared sauna therapy can be a great stress reliever. Sounds good, right?

Trendy Korean Clothing

Ive always been fascinated about Korean Clothing. I just love its trendy styles and designs. We have lots of Korean clothing store here in our place that's why I could check out and buy the latest new arrivals and styles that looks good on me. Coming up with a new and extraordinary fashion themes all the time, Korean clothing has something to offer  for trendy women.  Asian clothing is diverse and the international fashion market is becoming increasingly interesting because of it. A lot of fashion clothing from Asia mixes contemporary fashions with others found across the world while mixing these themes with traditional touches that give them that unique style. Korean clothing is slightly more unique than the others because  its fabrics are  exceptional in quality .

Hair Vitamins

If you're not blessed with beautiful healthy hair, there's still hope, because a good quality hair vitamin will supply your body with the proper vitamins and minerals that you may not be receiving in your diet to help create a beautiful healthy hair, prevent hair loss and best of all, it can help make your hair grow faster. Your hair ultimately reflects the overall condition of your body. If your body is healthy and well-nourished, your hair will reflect that fact. If you are having any health problems or suffering from any nutritional deficiencies, your hair may stop growing or show damage or become brittle, so you really need to supplement your body with hair vitamins. Taking the right hair vitamins and minerals plays a huge role in keeping your hair healthy.

Remembering my Mother-in-Law

Last 21st of October was the First Death Anniversary of my Mother-in-Law .so we visited her at the cemetery. How time seems like it was only yesterday. I remembered her because she was the one who taught me about salvation and about how to be contented in life even if I don't have a lot. The legacy that she left for us including me as her daughter-in-law is to remain to be a mighty warrior for God and I thanked her for that and for all the good things she has done and we will cherish and treasure it in our hearts... forever. 

Competition in our Business

Two months ago,  there's a 2 newly opened internet shop here in our place and this time, another one is building up near in front of our area.The other one was a friend of ours who are just starting and she always ask assistance to my hubby since my hubby is the one who maintained our pc's here.  Our friend serves as the manager because the real owner who finances their i-cafe shop  lives abroad. But the problem is our friend doesn't know much about installing, programming, pc set up and others. It is hard if you don't know how to do it and you just keep on asking on what to do. We told them to hire a technician to set up their pc's. They bought 6 second hand pc units and from what we had experience before, second hand units doesn't last and it is a waste of money since we spend a lot just by buying some damaged parts and it also cost us that much is repairing it. That's why we prefer to buy a brand new one. I think we are more than 10 internet

Banish Rosacea

Rosacea can affect almost anyone. It is a problem that can affect someone physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Oftentimes, those people who suffer from this condition cannot even control it or cover it up with use of makeup or laser treatments, making it all the more frustrating and possibly even debilitating. Before seeking treatment to banish rosacea, it is important to recognize just what rosacea is. Rosacea is a condition that will chronically plague its sufferer with red patches of skin. Pimples oftentimes also accompany an outbreak of rosacea. Though it is generally harmless, it can be rather embarrassing or even unsightly to some, which may affect one’s confidence and self esteem. If you are living the life of a rosacea sufferer, then you should check out Robert Campbell's highly acclaimed and well recognized book Banish Rosacea. He was also a sufferer from rosafea who discovered a new way to cure rosacea for good. The goal to Banish Rosacea are reasonable, obta

Sweet Kisses

I just realized when I was browsing and looking back some photos in my folders that we don't have much kissing scene photos. Haayz! Though every day we always kiss and show our love to our only daughter. The same thing our daughter loves to kiss us. She loves to kiss me on the lips and all over my face and she loves to kiss her Papa on his cheeks. Even if I am going to the bathroom, she would hurriedly follow just to kiss me. While I am busy on my blogging stuff and she wants to play with me, she wants to get my attention and she will never stop hugging and kiss me until I cuddle back and play with her. ^_^ More of sweet kisses of our kids only here on

White Bedroom Furniture

People who choose to buy white bedroom furniture simply loves the color it represents. We all know that white is linked in our culture to cleanliness, innocence and peace. An all-white bedroom is indeed a sanctuary and indulges of our fantasies of floating away to sleep on fluffy white clouds. Perhaps you want to buy a white bedroom furniture because you want to create an all-white room, then you would probably plan to accessorize the room with white bed linen, crisp white cushions and even a  white bedside table . Rather than ending up with a room that's a completely uniform color, you will end up with a whole palette of whites. Some people love the subtle contrasts involved, while others drive themselves crazy trying to find the perfect match for everything. Selecting furniture pieces for a white bedroom is a fun and challenging task. You have to explore the possibilities of making the color white an attractive focal point for your entire design. The furniture pieces such as

Pole Dancing for Fitness

I just watched some fitness pole dancing videos from Youtube awhile ago and I was truly fascinated how pole dancing moves as a form of dance which incorporates gymnastic moves, with freestyle movement and ballet in different dimensions which include a static and moving positions around the pole. Pole dancing is not just for exotic dancers but its is also for women with various backgrounds and lifestyles just like those stay at home moms like me who wants to try out pole dancing for fitness.The benefits are not only physical because it will help improve our grace and posture and it will make us feel more confident and will certainly help develop our self-esteem.

Computer Scraps

Our storage area here in our house is fully loaded with lots of computer scraps since we started upgrading our pc units from our i-cafe. We have lots of computer monitors, cpu's, hard disks and other pc accessories and I really want to dispose all of these things because it's not functional anymore and its already obsolete.  I had been looking for a scrap dealer here in our place but I haven't seen yet. Although junk shops buys these scraps but they just have to weigh it and the price will depend on the weight. I asked for the price and its too cheap. Well, I  I  better look and ask for my friends here to help me find a scrap buyer. I really want to get rid on all of these computer junks here.

Healthy Teeth and Smarter Kids, Is There a Link?

by Dr. J. Saladin Pediatric Dentist As you likely already know, our Greater Sacramento public schools have responsibly informed parents of groundbreaking legislation effective since 2006 which requires children entering public school in either kindergarten or first grade to present proof of having obtained an oral health assessment. So why is the law so concerned about our local schools?  Well, this new legislature is actually a national policy. Nationally, over 51 million school hours are missed annually to dental disease, the most widespread chronic childhood disease.   Only prevention, as this policy promotes, can help keep our children healthy and help keep them in our schools.  As a local pediatric dentist specializing in children’s oral and dental health, every little thing counts towards a child’s overall well being.  Therefore, in the spirit of prevention, I would like to contribute a little education to help parents understand the importance of baby teeth.
