My Dream Kitchen

Kitchen is the most important aspect of the house. It is where most moms stay. In my part, I want a huge kitchen with nice dark painted cabinets. Of course, everything should be granite. From granite sinks to granite counter top. Hubby and I have the same taste when it comes to kitchen. During spare hours we talk about our ideal house and its features. I know, someday we will be able to put up the kitchen we wanted. I am really fan of granite because it looks elegant and neat. For granite sink I already have found the place where to get just in a low prize. I heard they offer same day shipping which is also great. The store is "Shop Sinks and Faucet." So check it out.

HongKong Street Market

The photo below was taken during our vacation in HongKong. It is their Street market that I love to roam around. Lots of tourists love to drop by there because of their cheap stuffs. The buyer should know how to bargain to get the lowest price. In bargaining stuffs I am good in that. I remember how I bargain the dress that I bought from this market. Honestly, I can't wait to go back there again.


Thanks for viewing. This is my entry for Mellow Yellow Monday. Happy Monday everyone!

The Benefits in Switching to Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

We know that phone connects the people together. It is a known medium of communication which is difficult to get rid of. In fact, people continuously spend more money on their phone. But how long do you think they are willing to spend more? I think that time won’t be long if they have the open-mind to switch to Straight Talk. Great benefits are waiting for phone switchers. With Straight Talk everything you need is there. There are no contracts, surprise bills, and even credit checks that phone users should worry about.

Being on the contract these days with your phone provider is just like a crazy idea. If you are spending $100.00 on your phone monthly bill then it is time to switch to Straight Talk. With Straight Talk you could have a big savings because awesome monthly plans are offered in such a very cheap price. They have the unlimited monthly service for only $45 which includes calls, text, picture messaging and web. For heavy phone users the “All You Need Plan” should meet their needs. Aside from those mentioned great offers the company is also offering a whole year of unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web for only $499.00! Isn’t it perfect? With these offers surely you could save a lot of money. Switching to Straight Talk is actually a smart decision. Their phone connection is good and clear so you can still call a friend living abroad. And not only that, since the company has a flexible prepaid calling service for international long distance, the users could enjoy the low calling rates. This opportunity should not be rejected. I should make action soon for our phone so we could save money. Imagine for $50.00 monthly savings I could buy a nice bed for my kids next year. The mom knows best and that is for sure!

By the way, with Straight Talk you could own a reconditioned phone from $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, web access and other features that would suit your needs. If you also want amazing smart phones for business or personal use they have it too.

So from now on I will be looking forward of you telling your friends that you feel richer with Straight Talk because you cut your cell phone bill in half. Below is a short video for you to watch. I hope you will learn something from it.

Nutrition Month

Nutrition month had passed already. Sorry for this late post. I just want to share the photo of my son performing on stage with his classmates. I am so sorry to say that the photo is not quite clear. The housekeeper was the one who took this in a far distance.

My mother was the one who supervised my son and all those other things needed. My mother did a great job though. Son received also a medal on this celebration for having well-cleaned and no defective teeth.

To my son, we are so proud of you. We love you and miss you so much.

Only Nizoral Works on Me

Seeing white flakes on hair and scalp is so embarrassing. To those who have been suffering from such annoying dandruff you have my empathy because I have been there and still fighting for it till now. I tried different anti-dandruff shampoos, and once I found out that a certain shampoo doesn't work on me I shift to another brand.

Dandruff can be caused by different reasons, including sensitive to hair products, dry skin and other skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Whatsoever is my cause I don't know. I have never visited any doctor to check my scalp problem. I just do the self-treatment. So the only shampoo that works on me is Nizoral, and if I'll stop using it and go back to Loreal, Pantene or whatever I will be in big trouble. Itchy would occur here and there! Grrrrrrrr.... So disgusting!

Beautiful Teapot

I don't drink tea, do you? But when I saw the stunning teapot displayed inside the Empress Hotel's boutique seemed I'd like to drink a tea. lol! I wanted to grab it but I have no money. (Sigh) What a poor creature! Anyway, my eyes were enjoying its look. In the Philippines for sure there are also tons of beautiful teapots in there, so I rather collect there because it is cheaper.

If you find this teapot stunning, then give your thumbs up to it.

Free Advertising at Sulit

One advertising site which is free to post ads online is Filipino entrepreneurs and ordinary seller are posting their ads there for free. When we decided to moved out from our house in Cebu I posted it on their site. I received lots of inquiries few days after. It was awesome! And because of the site I able to find a tenant for our house. I was so happy. I hired a real estate agent to find the renter but I was the one who first found a client. I was jumping for joy because of that. Of course the commission goes to mine so I treated my housekeeper to Jollibee because we were the one who do the cleaning and packing of our things.

Now is the opportunity to thank for being their for us. So go advertise at Sulit.

Dollar Exchange Rates into Philippine Peso

These charts below illustrate the performance of the two different currencies. As an individual who keeps sending foreign money to my loved ones in the Philippines it becomes a part of my life to worry when dollar exchange rates go down. I am sure you know the reason why so, I don't need anymore to elaborate it here.

For monitoring purposes, here we go.

First chart shows the performance of Canadian dollar for the current week. It fluctuates all the time especially the case this time, you know the global crisis. As of today, the Canadian exchange rate to Philippine peso goes up a bit, $1 CAD dollar= 43. 53 PHP.

This 2nd chart illustrates the US for this week. It is actually improving now which is a good thing. Hopefully the flow will continue in the long run. So as of today 1 USD= 42.60 PHP.
