Photohunt - Square


This should have been easy, but for some reasons, I can't find something unique to post for SQUARE.  I managed to find this from my old files.  It's a square sushi called Sumo Roll.  Inside is a combination of tuna ans mango.  Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, my old camera phone was used to take this.

Walnut Goodness


Walnuts are not only delicious and full of nutrients, they sharpen your focus too.  The nuts have a high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids, healthy fats that optimize nerve communication in the memory center of the brain to improve mental speed and clarity.  Plus, the omega 3, along with the magnesium found in the nuts instantly lifts moods and keep your body resilient to stress.

Add walnuts to your daily diet to banish brain fog.  Grind and put them in cookies or toast them and add to salads.  It's nice to have the feeling that you are putting something in your body that's good you.

Coach Gifts!

Last night we had dinner with my two aunts who are here for a vacation.  It was a fun night and mom had a great time because she had not seen her sisters for years.  While catching up on each other's lives, we didn't notice it was late already.  We'll be having another dinner date on Friday and mom can't wait to see them again.  Before we parted ways, one of them handed me a large plastic bag.  When I checked it at home, it was full of coach gifts!  Mom and I each had a beautiful purse and a wallet, while my daughter had a cute bag.  The boys had perfumes, not coach but Armani and Hugo Boss.  Mom and I will be out later to shop for some local items for them.

Working Wonders

The best multivitamin for men must be good for my husband.  I noticed that his skin is clearer now and hydrated.  He used to complain about his very dry skin, but the white scratch marks are gone and his skin is softer.  Although I'm not sure if it has something to do with his hair, I also noticed that some hair are growing back.  He's not taking any hair growing creams.  :)  He is also more energetic and the morning sluggishness are gone.  He was a bit apprehensive on taking them but I'm glad he did.  

Keep It Off For Good

If you're like me who's desperate to shed off the unwanted pounds, then I'm sure you have considered taking the pills.  Although I have not tried them yet, I came across a lot of pills. All of them were promising great results so if I'm to buy one, it will be a little tough to choose.    But, I am seeing a lot of good reviews about sensa.  Apparently, it does not only work fast but it keeps the pounds off for good.  This is going to be the pill for me, I think.  I've heard of other pills.  They are effective but once you stop taking them, the fats are back.  I wouldn't want to be dependent on them forever.

An apple a day...


... slashes the risk of heart disease, lowers cholesterol, diminishes bone loss, protects skin from the sun and slashes your risk of colon and breast cancer.  So enjoy a dish of applesauce sprinkled with cinnamon for dessert, or toss an apple in your bag for an afternoon snack.

No Rain In Spain


Spain is one of Europe's most visited countries especially during summer. Its beaches are some of the best that Europe has to offer. Its highlands also attracts hikers and backpackers. The lure of the sea is something irresistible. The beaches of Mallorca lures not only locals but foreigners too. Hotels are packed during the summer months as tourist flock to this seaside paradise. For lengthy stays, there are numerous private villas for rent on a weekly basis. Honeymooners, families and friends stay in these very private and exclusive villas. All are overlooking the alluring beach of Mallorca. Pools are provided for the guests should they prefer to avoid the crowds. These villas give its guests the sense of having a home away from home.
There are also apartments available to tourists. The Pollensa apartments is one of the best in the region. Much like the private villas, these apartments are exclusive too. They offer more privacy to its guests than the crowded accommodations of the hotels. Guests have a more relaxed experience and would really enjoy their long stay. Some may think that these cost more, on the contrary, they are considerably less expensive. Depending on how one views it, accommodations are comparable or even better than staying in a hotel. It's more likely that guests in villas and apartments have better interaction with other guests. With a smaller gorup of people to deal with, friendships could develop. This is based on my personal experience in my many travels. You get to interact on a personal level.
Travelers now are more choosy. They tend to shy away from highly commercialized  lodgings. They travel in groups not only to enjoy each other's company but to share in the costs as well. All around the world, more and more exclusive establishments are heeding put up to address the changing attitudes of tourists. It's not neccessarily all about the nightlife but more on enjoying a relaxing trip. There are more ways of enjoying your trip than partying night after night after night. Of course the occassional trip to a bar or disco is still a must. Just so one can experience the what a place could offer.
Mallorca is a place where the sun always shines. It's a place where you can frolic and bask under the wonderful Mediterranean sun. It's a place that every traveler should visit in his or her lifetime. The Spanish plains get all the rain, In Mallorca, the sun shines almost the entire year.

Early Bird Bonus


Here's another one for heartburn.  People who eat dinner early in the evening are seven times less likely to have heartburn than those who eat later.  If you can't have it early, make sure you have your last bite four hours before you go to bed.

Did You Know?


Brush your teeth with your opposite hand.  This trick helps your brain feel younger and helps you think more clearly.  How?  This classic exercise uses muscles and nerves in new ways, automatically creating new brain pathways.

Outdoor Adventures

Anyone who has not gone camping or hiking is missing out on an experience of a lifetime. Nature has so much to offer. You don't have to go out on your own. There are camps that offer outdoor adventures. You'll be taught how to survive in the wild. You'll be given the opportunity to learn how you can live off the land. You'll be surprised at what you can eat. Guides and experts are on hand to make sure that you enjoy your trip.

Being a nature tripper, my husband makes it a point to join these camping tours. Not only does he learn more about nature, he also makes a lot of new friends. He learns how as a group, he can act as one with a common goal. He has also taken us with him. We enjoyed it and we also look forward to more outdoor experience.  

Worth Every Penny

I'll have to renew my hosting this May. So far, my current web host is doing a good job. Their tech support is commendable and downtime is virtually nil. I did not even notice that they conducted some maintenance work on their system. I've heard of some web hosts with very good services. I used to think that web hosting is expensive so I was hesitant at first. A friend encouraged me to subscribe and only then I found out that it really is very cheap. Every penny was well worth it. I used to and still have some free hosting. They are world's apart. You'll definitely see the difference once you sign up for a paid one.

You'll go through updates with a breeze. Technical know how is not a factor. Web hosts have online chat so you can easily ask anyone from their tech support for help. As someone who has multiple sites, the cost becomes even more cheaper. I encourage everyone to subscribe to a web host. You'll have total control of your website. You can even customize your site to your preference. No more dull and common themes. The experience is just so liberating. I'm not tech savvy yet I was able to maintain my sites with relative ease. I never thought that I can accomplish so much more with a professional web host.

Photohunt - Trees






It's sad that there aren't many trees where I live, so I take photos whenever I spot some.  The last one is a mango fruit from MIL's tree.

Did You Know?


The deeper the color of a squash, the sweeter its taste!

Easy Job With Inventory Control Software

I used to have inventory problems at my small grocery store with the many types of items and products I carry.  Plus, it was only me and a store helper.  Inventories usually took up several days to finish.  There were years that I didn't even bother to list and count the items because of lack of time.  But now that I have an inventory control software, things are much, much easier.  
At first I thought I will never get the hang of it, but since the software was simplified, it made tracking the stocks really easy.  All the items in the store and at the stock room are listed properly, sorted according to brands and expiration dates, the number of stocks are monitored, and tagged properly.  I never knew inventory could be this easy.

Turning To Gold

You can never be sure what the future holds for you. This is the reason why we invest our hard earned money on stable and secured investments. Putting your money in gold IRA is a wise choice as the value of gold continues to rise. Gold also backs up the more stable currencies so you can really be sure that its value is also secured. Realizing this, some people now shift their IRAs to 401k gold. By the time they retire, their gold 401k may have tripled or even quadrupled its value.

Projections by expert analysts will show that this precious metal will continue to hold its own against fluctuating market values. With demands in the technology sector, gold will be more valuable as time passes. Its uses are now moire diverse. Different industries now use gold which has helped increase it value. Gold prices continue to increase despite the volatile market.

Taking this in mind, it is then more prudent to invest in gold to ensure a comfortable retirement. Other stocks may rise or fall, but gold will remain as stable as it can be.

Photohunt - Closed



Although he wasn't really sleeping, our little one CLOSED his  eyes when I aimed the camera at him.


See.  He opened his eyes as soon as I made the first shot.  :)


Health Tip #19


Drinking eight glasses of water doesn't just keep you healthy, it makes you smarter.  How?  Our brain needs to be well-hydrated to transmit signals properly.  Make sure you drink plenty so you could think more clearly. 

Weight Won't Budge

Oh no, I'm not trying to lose too many pounds nor am I aiming for the perfect bikini body.  What I want is to at least shed a few so I would fit into my old clothes again.  I gained so much during the past months after I quit smoking.  My doc says it's natural and it might take a few more months to have the thyroid working again.  I still continue to workout though I have to admit it gets frustrating sometimes.  I work so hard but the weight won't even budge.  I asked him if I could take usp labs oxyelite pro, a fat incinerating formula especially made for women who have slow metabolism (that's me!).  He said, he'll check on it and will let me now ASAP.
