Photohunt - Written

This week's theme is a little tough but I tried to come up with my best take on WRITTEN.
The guy beside me is Paeng Nepomuceno, bowling's World Champion.   His 3 records are WRITTEN  in the Guinness Book of World Records:  1) for most Bowling World cup wins, 2) for being the youngest ever to win the Bowling World Cup (at 19 years of age), and 3) for having won the most number of bowling tournament titles.  He still actively competes up to this day and he is the only bowling athlete to have won or awarded titles in the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Happy weekend people!  Drop by tnchick's to view the different takes on WRITTEN.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

To my family and friends in the US, Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Wake Up Glowing

Before you tumble into bed at night too tired to wash your face, think about this:  A small investment in your nighttime beauty regimen means a big payoff  in the way you look in the morning.  Even the best wrinkle cream will have a hard time erasing the lines if you're too lazy to do a simple pre-bed routine.  

Be kind to your skin and you'll wake up glowing with this simple task.  Remove your makeup and wash your face with a mild soap or facial wash.  After washing, massage skin gently in circular motions from the center of the face out to the ears, chin, and forehead to stimulate circulation and lympathic flow.  You'll wake up to refreshed, healthy- and young-looking skin.  :)


For the first time in her life, my sister got a ticket for over-speeding.   My sis had always been a good and careful driver and I admire her for that.  But yesterday, she was running late for work and didn't notice she was driving too fast.  She swears never to go on a girls' night out again on  a week day, haha.  Someone also told her to try radar detectors.  Apparently, it'll help her monitor her speed so she can reduce the car's speed before the authorities notice it.  I strongly agree with your friend sissy, get one of those to avoid being ticketed again.  ;)

Build More Muscle

If you've been in and out of a weight loss program, you know that losing a lot of fat and gaining a lot of muscle at the same time is very hard to do. You have to have a proper diet program in order for you to do that.  We often mistake cutting back on food (protein especially) to help us lose the pounds without realizing that we are also losing muscles in doing so.  You want to know how to build muscle fast and lose unwanted pounds at the same time?  Movie stars with great-looking bodies didn't do it without help so don't get jealous because you too can have that body.  If you're ready to get started, you'll need to do a little work and a little "magic" on your diet and weight training program.

I Need A Fat Buster

Oh, why is it so hard to lose weight when you're older?  That's a question I often ask myself whenever the scale needle stops on a number for a long time. I am eating less and exercising more, still, the pounds won't come off.  Been looking at the best fat burners on the web.  Maybe it's what I need to trigger fat loss.  Most dieters get frustrated when the needle moves down so slowly so they lazy and stop exercising.  I don't want that to happen to me.

Fatigue Fighter

Need more energy?  Try cinnamon.  The spice activates insulin receptors on cells, increasing their ability to absorb glucose and regulate blood sugar levels, which help fend off fatigue.  Sprinkle on your favorite desserts or add to coffee or hot cocoa.

Total Zen at Spa Dallas

Do you think your skin problems may be a matter of the mind?  I think the answer is YES because stress and skin problems go hand in hand.  Whatever the emotional trigger -- work pressures, relationship issues, financial problems, life transitions, or depression -- stress can cause these trouble-making chemicals to flood skin and wreak havoc.

Mind body relaxation and calming activities like meditation, yoga, t'ai chi reduce the flow of neuropeptides, leading to less reactive skin.  Decreasing stress, by whatever means -- a once or twice a month visit at spa dallas (that's total zen!) -- can also help your skin better tolerate the numerous insults that occur throughout the day (perspiration, irritants, allergens, even makeup!).  De-stressing is your key to a calm mind and clear skin.

Health Tip #14

Feel strong with carrots.  The crunchy orange vegetable contains carnitine, a compound that boosts stamina by transporting fat to the mitochondria, where it is burned for energy. 
The sweet veggie does not only make us strong keep eyesight bright.  Its antioxidant compounds help protect us against cardiovascular disease and cancer too.

Try SEO Dallas

The internet has rapidly made its mark in our daily lives. The use of the world wide web in all kinds of businesses is also growing. Companies, big or small, have taken notice of the importance of the internet in its daily operations. Businesses now are interconnected through the web and almost anything you need can be found here.  But with so many companies trying to fit in, how do you think you can make your business more visible?  Well, the answer is easy.  Best one to try is SEO Dallas. What it does is maximize the potential of your keywords, putting you up in the top pages of search engines.  So when a person types your keyword, you're guaranteed a place on the top page.  Would you rather waste time and money on fruitless advertising or give search engine optimization a try?

GPS Tracking, accurate and reliable.

Ahh, the leaps in technology.  Back then, it was the scouts and the bloodhounds who did most of the tracking.  Not very accurate but they did a great job in providing us with the right information.  Now both can take a back seat, relax and let gps tracking do the job.  GPS' development through the years has made the little gadget more accurate than ever. Modern technology has done a great job in enhancing our daily lives.  Even I, as a parent is enjoying the benefits of gps.  Parents can now monitor where their kids are going and can immediately take preventive measures to ensure their safety.

Boost Confidence

Do I like this bracelet?  Is it worth the money?  I didn't realize this mental "shop talk" is good for you.  According to experts, when you're browsing in stores, you are really making a series of independent decisions.  So you see, window shopping boosts confidence because whether you scored a great deal on an 8g ipod nano or you passed on a pricey piece of jewelry, in the end, you have developed greater faith in your own judgment.  Window shopping does not only make you feel good but it makes you feel more confident as well.

Keep The Big C At Bay

Consuming cabbage lowers your cancer risk.  Coleslaw's main ingredient contains isothiocyanates, compounds that stimulate apoptosis, the body's process of eliminating cancerous cells.  Eat more of this and your on your way to healthy.

Garden Or No Garden

Haay, the frustrations of having to live in a condominium. I couldn't even have a small garden!  I've always wanted my own where I can grow beautiful flowers, some vegetables and some fruit-bearing trees.   I took the green thumb from mom whom I loved to watch tend our backyard garden while I was growing up.  I always volunteered to water the plants.  :)  My favorite are her orchids.  The Cattleyas didn't bloom very often but when they did, they attracted a lot of passers by.
Not having my own prevents me from having indoor planters. Garden or no garden I had  to have plants and flowers brighten up my home.  Next, I will have outdoor planters installed on the windows.  Did you know that sniffing flowers even just for a few seconds can change your mood instantly?
So don't let "No Space" stop you from decorating your home.  An indoor planter won't only add drama to your home but it will also set the mood.

Wonderful Scents

It's forty days before Christmas, have you figure out what to give your main man on this important day? I f you still haven't, I suggest you check out Fragrances Buying Guide.   The site offers a long list of fragrances, not just for men but women's perfumes as well.

The provocative and bold fragrances they have on the site will make women ask, "What are you wearing?" Choose from among the top colognes that women like smelling on men. I'm sure your man would love to have one of these.  I'm choosing a woody scent for hubs.  It has a special masculine scent and I like that it possesses a soothing blend of woods, yet it has this citrus and spicy leaf aroma. According to reviews, the scent does not wear off rather quickly, it has a long lasting fragrance and is never over empowering. The scent never leaves you sneezing.

If you want your man to smell sexy, visit now and choose among their wonderful fragrances.

What HCG Does

HCG shot is a hormone boost that affects our body in different ways.  I say different because it depends on the dosage. When a shot is given to a woman, it stimulates the ovaries to produce and release eggs. Best for those who are trying to conceive but is having a hard time.  When a shot is given to a man, production of testosterone is enhanced.  I also heard that an HCG shot can also affect the hypothalamus gland, meaning a shot can aid in weight loss.  What's great about HCG shots Austin is that you get rid of fat tissue rather than lean muscle mass. It has become popular that many companies are offering HCG shots.  Trust only reputable companies.

Acne Woes Solved

Well, you are mistaken if you think acne is just for teens.  People of all ages suffer from it and sad to say, I;m one of them. I have practically tried everything to get rid of the bumps and have been to a lot of dermatology clinics. How I wish existed back then.  My acne woes would have been lessened if it did and I could have avoided having scars.  Well, kids and adults alike are luckier now because there's a website such as this to help solve acne problems.

On Her Way To Thin

To my friend Ellen, losing weight was out of her grasp since she had osteoarthritis.  The pain often keeps her from working out.  But she is now determined to turn back the number on the scale.  She found Lipofuze while surfing the web for ways to outsmart pounds of body fat.  She asked her doc if it's safe for her and he gave Ellen a go signal.  I'm glad that she's on her way to thin and will soon regain back her pep.  Good luck my friend.

Steer Clear Of These Oils

The biggest diet wreckers are partially hydrogenated oil, hydrogenated oil, vegetable shortening, high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats.  Most foods we like contain these "bad oils" and if we continue to have them in high amounts, even fda approved diet pills won't work to shed off pounds.  Diet pills do work but you've got to help them too.  Taking them does not give you the license to splurge.

Their Favorite Spot

My brother and his family's favorite vacation spot is Orlando.  They enjoy it so much that they keep coming back every year.  Ever since they discovered the cheap Orlando vacation packages, his family has been visiting it for the last years.  In fact, they will be spending the holidays there.  The kids love that there are so many  cool things to do and they do enjoy the sites. Well, brother says, that's alright as long as it does not break his bank.  He is happy to see his kids enjoying the theme parks and having a great time.

Nix Heartburn

Suffering from heartburn?  Sleep on your LEFT side.  Those who do so are 50% less likely to suffer from acid reflux.  Lying on your right puts the stomach higher than the esophagus, allowing stomach acid to slide up into the throat.  Sleeping on your left side puts gravity in your favor because it helps acid pass into the small intestine.


Hubs and I finally got our Postal IDs, after all the fuss, yesterday afternoon.  I wonder why the post office have not upgraded their system.  Did you know that they're still using typewriters up until now?  My uncle's laundry shop is not even big and yet he has a receipt printer.  The scales at the post office are not even digital.  I wonder where all the money goes?  I paid Php320 for one ID.  That's a lot for a simple Identification Card.

Quick Cure For Cold Sore

If you're suffering from cold sore, dab a little honey on the blister for fast relief instead of applying over-the-counter meds.  Repeat two or three times a day until the spot heals.  Researchers discovered that applying antioxidant-rich honey at the first sign of a cold sore reduced the breakout's duration by two-thirds, so it heals 43 percent faster than when treated with prescription antivirals.

Pretty In Pink

Back then, hospital gowns are just white and very ordinary. Instead of the patient feeling better, the sight of of those uniforms make the patient feel more sick. If you are a doctor, a nurse or a medical staff and you had a choice of what scrub to wear, wouldn't you feel better wearing what you want to wear? Scrubs should not look ordinary, but should be fashionable as well.
A lot of patients would feel more at ease and will have a fast recovery when they see nurses wearing hot pink scrubs.  Pink is a smooth color and is pleasing to the eyes.  In fact, color experts say, colors whether intense or soft, are identified not so much on the basis of reflected light or shadow, but in terms of the meaning or feeling associated with them.  It is considered a color of good health and life.  Who wouldn't love seeing medical staff in pink medical uniform tops and pink medical uniform tops?
Blue Sky Scrubs have released their latest designs where doctors, dentists, nurses and staff who wear them can easily cheer up their patients.  That kind of attitude helps patients have a fast recovery.  They are so fashionable that they don't even look like scrubs.  The site offers a lot of fashionable scrubs, mens medical uniforms, nursing scrubs, koi scrubs, dental uniforms.  Drop by their website if you're looking for fashionable scrubs.

Fight Bloat with Cilantro

Feeling bloated?  Eat cilantro, it eases belly bloat.  Dodecanol, a natural compound in cilantro, acts as a diuretic to help relieve bloat and gas.  The compound has also been found to be twice as effective at killing salmonella as some antibiotics.
Cilantro adds tons of flavor without the calories.  I'm not so fond of cilantro because of its strong flavor but since the herb does the body good, might as well eat more of this. 

Oh no, dear

It's not a good idea that the electronics store is right beside the bowling center where I am playing.  We've been going there since Thursday because of the Asian Intercity Tournament.  You ask me why not?  Haha.  Hubs can't keep his eyes off the Samsung HDTV.  But of course, he can keep on looking.  :)  We can't get it even if it's on sale because we just bought a flat screen late last year.  You know what he said when i gave him the "Oh no, dear" look?  "I'm going to save for that and pass the flat screen to Joey."

Halt Hiccups

If gulping down water can't do the trick, here's another way to stop embarrassing hiccups.  Lightly run an ice cube up and down the front of your throat, just right of the center, for 30 seconds.  Experts explain that an overfiring vagus nerve can perpetuate hiccups.  But chilling the right side of the throat (where the vagus nerve runs closest to the surface) temporarily anesthetizes this nerve and normalizes its functions.

Kitchen Sink Fix

If the water in your kitchen sink is draining a bit slowly after washing the dishes, here's the fix.  Pour 3 tablespoons of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1 cup of vinegar.  The acid in the vinegar will neutralize the baking soda, so it will foam and dislodge the clog.  Wait for a few minutes, then flush with 8 quarts boiling water, followed by lukewarm water from the faucet until the sink drains normally.

My favorite jar is broken.  :(  This is where I put all my combs and hairbrushes.  I don't exactly know how it happened but hubs said he accidentally dropped the hairdryer while looking for his comb.
