Acupuncture in Edmonton

Orientals particularly the Chinese rely heavily on traditional medicine. A friend of mine goes to his Chinese doctor regularly for his therapy. Acupuncture takes care of his back pains. When he was assigned to Edmonton, the first thing he asked around is there is a traditional Chinese clinic in the area. An office mate confirmed that there is acupuncture in edmonton. In fact, there are several. Like him, his coworker also regularly goes to one of them. He's having his knee treated there. The clinic is just a few minutes from their office and he's more than willing to take him there. Tradition is sacred to some people and my friend is one them.

Here's what we found.

Yesterday, Mai and I had a chance to go to the mall.  We brought the twins with us and we had so much fun to once again visit the mall together.  It's been a long time since we last went malling.  We went to the baby shop to look for earrings but the stones we wanted for the girls were out of stock.  

We found two cute sterling silver bracelets instead so that's what we got for the girls.  They already had their ears pierced before but an "old witch" took them off, but that's another story.  Right now I am too excited about the bracelets and I don't want to talk about unpleasant things.

Working On A Project

My boys are busy making bigger speakers for my sons room.  Joey is now on his summer vacation and his dad promised that they will fix his music corner and assemble big speakers for a better sound quality.  They have asked me to pass by the hardware to buy them t nut and other stuff on my way to the grocery store.  Both are too excited to finish their project right away.  I just hope that they will also do something to control the sound  that will be coming from his room; I don't want out neighbors banging on our doors telling me to turn down the volume.

Denise's Gift

What do you give someone who already has everything? Denise, my niece, is graduating from high school this week and it took me months to finally figure out the perfect gift for her; you should click here if you wanna see the gift. It's just a simple gift but it would surely inspire her. I'm glad I found this site because I might still be looking for a gift if I haven't. It really pays to search online because you'll find lots of ideas and you'll never believe how affordable these gifts are. 

Elegant and Stylish

Now that the pipes in the basement are fixed, my sister can start shopping for furniture.  It was a blessing that she didn't shop for furniture right away when she moved in because a couple of months after, there was an incident of flooding.  It turned out that one of the pipings was rusty and it broke.  But now it's fixed so she started looking for cheap furniture.  Who would ever think that the elegant furniture she showed me in her photos were very affordable?  They looked too modern and styles looked expensive.  She really has an eye for beautiful things.

Did You Know?

You can improve memory with these red jewels.  A flavonoid in these berries known as fisetin is proven to create new connections between neurons and stimulate pathways in the brain.  So eat more strawberries so you'll stay sharp.

Pretty Bunk Bed for the Twins

Never thought that I'd be looking for bunk beds again after my kids have grown.  This time it's for my twin granddaughters.  Their mom is too busy taking care of them she doesn't have the time to search for a pretty but functional bed (even online).  The twins' room is not so big so I needed to look for a full over full bunk bed that saves space but will still look pretty in their room.  

Their mom wanted a simple bunk bed but I thought it's wiser to order the Ligo Color Box Twin over Full Stairway Bunk Bed.  It's in pink and white, the perfect colors for our girls; and it has a stairway that I'm sure the girls will enjoy.  It's functional too because it comes with drawers where they can put clothes or toys.

When I was younger, the bunk beds are not this pretty.  Bunk beds now come in different styles and designs.

Brain Reviver

Need to focus more?  Marjoram plays a role in optimizing brain function.  Scientists found that the oil found in the herb counters the effects of the enzyme AChE that is responsible for the breakdown of  a neaurotranstmitter that's crucial to sharp focus and memory.  The experts also believe that such AChE inhibitors may help protect against Alzheimer's.  To enjoy marjoram, add them to salads or your favorite dishes.

Infinite Banking Helps Out A Friend

A friend who's been down with his luck, decided to reconstruct the pieces of his shattered financial life. Hit hard by the stock market but holding several term life insurances, he set out to get back on his feet. Hearing about the theory of infinite banking, he turned to what he had on hand.  And following the lessons he learned from the books he has on infinite banking, he's slowly but surely getting back on his feet. He is able to acquire some of the luxuries he once enjoyed. He's also slowly paying his debts. It's good to see someone who's been down get back the lost life he once had.

Natural Way to Repel Mosquito

Rather than using chemical sprays on your skin to prevent mosquito bites or lighting up expensive citronella candles, use this mix to ward off the insects.  Mix two tablespoons of garlic powder and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle and use it to spritz your outdoor light before turning it on.  As the bulbs heat up, it will disperse a garlicky scent across your entire deck.  Mosquitoes hate the scent of garlic, so they will surely stay away.

My Simple Wedding Cake Toppers

Still reminiscing about my lovely wedding.  If my husband's family surprised me with the fabulous wedding decorations, I wasn't surprised with the wedding cake.  I had full control of what went in the cake and what wedding cake toppers to choose.  My wedding cake was made by my mom's good friend.  Fondant cakes weren't in yet (well that's how long ago I was married) but I had a very elegant 7-tiered wedding cake.  The icing was in white and it was embellished with beautiful candied peach roses.  My wedding cake topper was just a simple figurine of a bride and groom but the bride had the same wedding gown as mine.

My Wedding Decorations

I vividly remember my wedding. Designer friends of my husband's family helped prepare all the wedding decorations for the church and the reception hall of the hotel. I did not have an idea of what they prepared. On my wedding day, I was awestruck by what they have done. Two thousand peach colored roses and thousands and thousand of fragrant Sampaguitas filled the altar and lined the aisle. I can only imagine the effort they exerted in preparing everything. I was excited to see how the reception looked. I was equally beautiful. A towering white cake was the centerpiece of a long buffet. The walls also had roses. All our guests marveled at the work they did. I will never forget the wonderful day.

More Benefits from D

The list of benefits from vitamin D keeps on growing.  The latest according to experts is that D can prevent multiple sclerosis.  People who get regular sun exposure have a lower risk of developing symptoms like loss of balance and muscles spasms.  When you have MS, your immune system is overactive and it attacks itself.  Researchers believe that vitamin can suppress this activity.  And what better way to boost the production of D than to bask in the noonday sun for 10 to 20 minutes.

Shopping For Wedding Decorations

My cousin is getting married soon. She and her fiancee want a garden wedding and we promised her that we would make their wish come true. We are shopping for wedding decorations that would be perfect for her wedding theme. The wedding will be in May which gives us enough time to choose the best decorations we can find. Her mom is taking care of the catering and her sister is tasked with the invitations. Her dad already made arrangements for their pastor. I have seen her wedding gown and it looks great. We all can't wait for their very special day. We hope she likes what we prepared for her.

Choosing the Wedding Cake Toppers

Still about my cousin's wedding in May. Another cousin will be doing her hair and makeup.  She'll be home two weeks before the wedding so they can still try different colors and techniques.  The whole family is working hard to give her a great wedding; everyone has to do something and even our cousins from the province will be helping out with the decorations and other arrangements.  The wedding cake is the only thing that we ordered from outside because none of us can bake a wedding cake.  I can bake but I'm not sure if I can do a wedding cake; I didn't want to risk ruining her day, haha.  Later I'll be going with the bride to choose the wedding cake toppers.  She'll be having a five-tiered fondant cake and she wants lots of flowers on it.

Something about Nightcaps

For those women who love nightcaps, here's something you should know.  Contrary to what we know that a glass of wine can help you drift off to sleep easily can actually lead to poor sleep.  And the effect is much worse in women.  We tend to metabolize alcohol more quickly than men so we are more prone to disrupted sleep.  To avoid this, have your last drink at least three hours before hitting the sack.

New Business

My brother and uncle are planning to buy and sell firearms.  I think it's a good plan because money is tough and we all need to earn extra income for our growing family and to keep up with the increasing prices.  Both men are interested in guns, in fact, my brother has collected some over the years.  They are in process of obtaining FFL license.  They have submitted all the documents needed and they are just waiting for the FFL guys to do their inspection in my uncle's home.  For the past couple of months, the men were busy preparing a portion of my uncle's house to be ready for business.  They have been putting up stack on gun safes and other display cases.  With the way things are going and seeing how well they fixed and prepared the place, I'm sure they will get an approval.

I'm glad my son finally found time to help me sort through his cabinet. It is already getting full and we had to take out the ones that don't fit anymore. We were able to "dig" a lot of old shirts; some of those were his favorite funny shirts. Each shirt has a different story and as we were packing them in a box to be given to our local charity, we were chuckling as we tried to remember the funny story behind each shirt. He felt a little sad about giving them away but happy at the same time because some kids would have fun with those shirts.
