Flash Flood in Manila Philippines

Last Saturday, a big flash flood happened in my country of origin, where my two brothers lived. I called my brothers many times but they didn't have a signal. This morning I tried it again, and I finally heard from one of them, and that is my next older brother. He said that he never heard from our eldest brother since the first day of the typhoon. I'm so worried thinking about him. I was crying when I watched the TV news on TFC because there's a lot of people who got killed from this typhoon, which is named Ondoy. What a big catastrophe! I'm hoping and praying that everything will be fine soon.

Travelling with Luggage

When I went back home a couple of years ago I used Samsonite luggage for my trip. All of my stuff just fit perfectly in it. Well, I bought the Expandable Upright. It is lightweight and good for a 1 week trip. So, if you are looking for luggage for your upcoming vacation, try to check this out. Maybe you'll find the right one for you. I sure did.

Tiles for the Entire Family

I like golden colored and amber colored glass tiles in my bathroom. They're so beautiful and easy to clean up. I love the color turquoise. Then, I'll match it to my shower curtain, which is blue. I'm sure it will look great. It's very relaxing when taking a bath and everything is well organized in your bathroom. It's a good feeling. Next time if our Arkansas friends have a chance to buy a two-family house I'm sure they definitely will use glass tiles like this.

I sent a package to my brother last week through LBC and I was so glad to hear from him that he got it yesterday. It was very quick and easy. Now I don't have to worry about sending packages back home because I can really trust the LBC air cargo system. The good thing is I can track the package online. It's a little bit pricey but it's definitely worth the money.

Havaianas Flip Flop

A couple of months ago I sent flip-flops to my cousin back home through USPS priority mail. Usually this kind of mail only takes 7-14 days to arrive there. But this time I lost all hope because when I talked with my cousin last month she said that she didn't get them. I thought somebody got interested and stole the package. But guess what? She left a message this morning that she received the mail yesterday. Oh, boy, it took three months but I'm so happy that she finally got them, after the long wait.

Are you tired of watching your small TV screen? Maybe it's time for you to treat yourself. Get the latest LCD HDTV today. I myself am planning to get one too. I can't wait to have a big TV screen in our living room and hang it on the wall. It's a space saver no matter what the size of your home or apartment. Well, I need to talk to my hubby first before jumping into it. But I have my eye on this appliance for sure.

New Orleans

What I like the most about New Orleans is their nice restaurant, music and shopping center. Plus, the New Orleans hotels French Quarter is very affordable. So, if you are thinking of going a vacation, why don't you consider to book a flight and a package vacation in this place? I'm sure you will enjoy there. And don't forget to invite your friends and family there too, the more the merrier.

Pot Luck Party

My friends in were inviting me to join their pot luck party next week. I couldn't decide whether I would go yet because my mind is so busy thinking about other things that make me go crazy. Well, I pause sometimes... I'm hoping that I can make the right decision sooner. I don't want to be unfair to them. I also value their friendship to me. But I have a terrific responsibility coming up in the next few weeks to throw a big birthday bash for my daughter and I have tons of food I want to make.

How Harrison Ford Relaxes

Instead of coming home many bachelors go to a pub and watch a television program or a billiards game. This can be done in or out of a tuxedo vest even on a Saturday night or a Sunday afternoon in June. Why travel when you can relax at home with a great outfit like this? In my opinion there is no better way to relax. This is what a guy like Harrison Ford would do.

My Crockpot

I just got my Crock-Pot today from Amazon. I ordered it the other day and chose the 3-day shipping option. Actually, I'm qualified for their free shipping but we didn't want it because it might have taken longer. We didn't want to miss it on Kate's birthday. I'm planning to cook a pot roast on her special day plus other dishes. This pot can be set to shut off automatically. I may also cook bacon in it. We wish to avoid Teflon.

The Other Day I Thought of This

Examples abound of the kind of jeopardy that one can run into on a daily basis. As the Latin phrases one studies in high school may lead to injury through overzealous concentration, one may wish to turn to emergency assistance. This, too, can help one become more familiar with how to deal with a crisis before it even becomes critical. That is why we call upon them in times of stress.

How to Move Across the Country with Ease

For as long as we can remember we have relied upon the help of strangers. That's no surprise since some of the best long distance moving companies are there to help. We can call upon them day or night. They will be there through thick and thin and will help us get where we are going. Sometime next October I will be telling them where we expect to go next.

Happy Labor Day to everyone. It's time to celebrate and enjoy. Lets go party...It's a beautiful day, the weather is nice. How I wish I was at the beach right now and having a sip of cold beer.

Charles Hapgood

My favorite author is Charles Hapgood. He believes something that very few geophysicists believe. In his opinion the earth's magnetic pole has shifted from north to south. Each this happens it is a cataclysmic event. I wish more scientists would read his book and open their eyes.
