Bookworm Meme

on November-27-08

I’ve been tagged with the Bookworm Meme by Maria. Thanks Maria! ;)

Here’s how this meme works:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next two to five sentences.
5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one. Pick the Closest.
6. Tag five people to do the same.

Many factors such as disease,disuse,and immobilization may result in muscle weakness

The title of the book is Therapeutic Exercise-Foundations and Techniques Third edition by Carolyn Kisner and Lynn Allen Colby. It is a book in Physical Therapy course.

I do not have anyone to tag yet. I just want to post this one first.

Feel free though to grab this if you want.

Thanks again, Maria!

Royalty treatment

on November-27-08

I am really curious to know what it is like in a casino. I love watching one TV show about it and I wonder if it is also like that in real life. You know all those thrill and excitement, the shouting, clapping and fashion! Well, of course, the most important aspect of playing is the winning!

I might just try this Golden Palace Casino. I have not been to a real palace so this could be my chance! Really, now! It is the leading online casino and downloading the software is easy. Moreover, there are free games that you could enjoy. It could be a good playground before getting into the real game.

It is also a venue to meet many people because most countries in the world can play here. Good news! All new players can receive up to $300 in free casino bonus money! Now, isn’t that very inviting? All popular casino games like Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Slots are available! They also have arcade games. Play your favorite Bingo, Spin a Win, and there is Bonus Bowling.

So, be curious no more but at least try it. No need to go to Las Vegas. You could experience a royalty treatment while playing at Golden Palace Casino!

I was a Grey’s Anatomy addict before. I was able to watch Seasons 1,2 and 3 in a week’s time! Thanks to my friends who lent those DVDs. Supposedly, I was excited to watch season 4 but it was seemed dragged because of the writers’ strike? I was not able to keep track of it in YouTube neither because I think it has infringement issues already? Anyways, I just thought about it again last night and I learned that there is already a Season 5! Luckily, I was able to get the full episode 1 but I had to watch it until 4AM because of the slow internet connection. Now, I am having a terrible headache due to lack of sleep. Oh, McDreamy! You really gave me a headache but I am glad to see you again!

A Christmas feel

on November-23-08

I have a new template! Actually, I would like those designs made by Lena but I could not visualize it because my monitor is small. Maybe tomorrow, I will try uploading one at the office. For now, I just got the header image from one of her creations. I would like to have a Christmas feel here. So that is it!

A necessity

on November-23-08

I have read in many blogs that you should get your own dedicated hosting if you would like to have full control of what you publish. I am real interested in this that is why I started looking for web hosting services. Getting your own host means you have to pay. It is like having a utility subscription.

A dedicated server hosting is a must for online businesses like if you would like to have your own shopping online store or if you are a law firm or offers consulting services. There are so many things that you could do having a high bandwidth and large storage.

If you are not really on the bigger scale and would just like to concentrate on blogging here and there just like me, it is still necessary to host your blogs. There are plans which could cost you for as low as $3.95 per month. I suggest that you get a package that would allow unlimited add on domains. That would really mean more savings. Get a host that has a 24/7 customer service also. Technical support is very important especially if you are just starting.

I might get my own host next year. I still have a lot to learn.

Oh, darn it! Philippines could have won. How many minutes was the difference before finally reaching the last pit stop between the winners and the Philippine team? I have not watched the whole episode yet because we are still watching Fear Factor and I just took a peek at AXN. Then it was the ending already. Maybe I will not stay up until 1AM later just to watch the delayed telecast. But the tasks seem exciting. I salute Ida and Tania. They seemed very good sports. As of Geoff and Tisha, I understand though why they were sad. They could have won! Being second is rather more painful than finishing last.

thanks to axn.com for the photo

When I was younger, I would like to wear eyeglasses because I would like to grow up and become a woman already! Now, I would like to get one again after seeing theHoliday Glass Frames From Zenni Optical. Much more, I know that I could afford them. I would make an appointment with the ophthalmologist and would not cheat on the eye exam anymore. You know, memorizing those small letters so that I could still have that 20-20 results, LOL! First, I do not like eyeglasses as much as before and second, I think that prescription eyeglasses are expensive. Thank you to the popular online eyeglasses shop, Zenni. Now, there are affordable $ 8 Complete Rx Eyeglasses!

I watched Amazing Race Asia last Thursday night…err make it Friday morning and I was so thrilled and excited until the next pit stop. I am so happy that Geoff and Tisha made it to the final three. I am now religiously watching the TV show and make sure to catch every episode even if it means sleeping at 1Am. I could not watch it on primetime because my family members are watching the local shows here.

For me, Amazing Race Asia is one of the truest of all the reality game shows. There is no pretension whatsoever among the players. One of my favorite episodes was when Geoff and Tisha had to carry a 20 kilo fish on their shoulders. That must be physically exhausting. They won the first place in that stretch.

I also like the competitive spirits of Ida and Tania. I think that they deserve to win the race if Geoff and Tisha would not. These women always give their best shot in every task. They are clever too.

In the last episode, Geoff and Tisha seemed lost their smartness on the PIN to be entered for the next clue at the ATM machine. The ones who had the most intelligent move were AD and Fuzzie who asked the bystanders in what year Gandhi was born. 1869. They did not even have to look for the statue because they were brought directly to the bank.

The Cliffhanger part was painful for the last two teams. Luck struck for the last team to qualify for the finals, that is Sam and Vince.

Amazing Race Asia – I will certainly miss this show once it is over.

Thoughts on travel

on November-14-08

They say that before going to a foreign land, it would be better if you could travel first to your own country. Like here in the Philippines, there are so many beautiful places to go to! I am thankful for our company for giving us the chance and he budget to go outside Manila and travel by plane!

Booking for a flight is the more tedious thing to do. Working on a limited amount of money and time are two of the factors that make heads become hot. The coordinator for the trip is the one who is always on top. The others, including me have just to choose form all the places and tour packages that he was able to collect and got quotations of. There are times that we have to shell out extra cash just to go with the plan. Everybody wants to ride an airplane. Most of the time, the airfare gets the bigger percentage of the budget. Then there is the hotel and accommodation. Free food or not? Served meals or buffet? You can have everything for a price. I enjoyed two of our trips where there was buffet! Not much of my favorite foods though. I love seafood and the only seafood served as far as I could remember was fish! Lol!

I have been to Cebu, Palawan, Mindoro, Subic, Tarlac, Baguio, Batangas and almost the whole of Manila. Not bad at all, huh! However, I have not been to Boracay. I might just go there with my husband and kid. One of my friends frequents the place and she said that if I will book my own flight, meaning no agencies, I could just get a hotel upon arrival. That could be cheaper. My hubby though would just like to hire a travel agency. I told him, why not just book online? I am happy to find http://www.hotelscombined.com. This site actually caters not only to the Philippines but also to the whole world.

Juice or no water?

on November-9-08

We decided to cut on our juice intake. You know using those powdered juice means lots of sugar intake. It gives a dose of 100% Vitamin C though as one popular brand claims. It had been a couple a weeks already. However, I noticed that we cut on our fluid intake too. Meaning we do not drink water at all in a regular basis. I could live with only a glass of clear water and that’s it. The rest of the members of our household are not water drinkers neither. Could that be the reason why my son caught some colds? Now, I have decided to bring back juice in the house. I think it would be better to drink two to three liters a day of juice rather than missing on the fluid requirement of our body.
