I 've been wishing to get out and experience or live through Chicago, but simply I am not satisfy by just eating Chicago food but I desired to feel Chicago. Therefore, we tried the famous Portillo's HotDog in Buena Park, CA one weekend.


The foremost thing that caught my attention was the ambiance of the place inside. Struck by their menu, I grabbed the Italian Beef special with fries as served with an utterly baked French baguette together with sweet or hot pepper of your pick. Plus we added the Jumbo hotdog or Portillo's dog to truly experience the savor of a genuine Chicago style hotdog.

Surprisingly, for me it was a great meal, the baguette was so rich in flavor and the fact that I was starving, I almost finished the entire meal.. waaah... my diet was being jeopardized once again. Not at all I envisioned how gratifying indeed eating this kind of hotdog. I did try plenty of dogs in my lifetime but I believe the Portillo's exceeded my expectations.

Polish Hotdog - charcoal grilled dog with relish, shredded onions, mustard, sliced red ripe tomatoes, pickles and peppers prepared with an utterly steamed poppy seed bun.

B ad news to the frequent mall goers like me. Did you know that the 2nd biggest mall operator in the country is filing for bankruptcy?

You heard it right! The General Growth Properties, which handles a great number of malls (approx. 1,500) throughout the country is currently facing $25 billion in liability. Lot of malls are being switched into offices or just left to darkness after 10 years of being unoccupied.

The mall was part of a crucial event related to our teenage years. So what is your fave or unpleasant mall memories?

The movie has already hit the theather last 15th of May and now its almost 2 weeks past but still I am consoling myself to be more patient or else Im going to lose one's nerve in second.

Anyway, I guess it's really good to install a Direct TV in the office as it can be one great service to keep the customer away from boredom.

No wonder, I could see so much flat screen TV in the fitness center that I used to work out. It makes your mind dull and not wary or unconscious of how long you've been staying in the treadmill.

S ince summer has officially started, Im planning to re-paint our bedroom like shown in the above picture. I guess picking the right colors for our bedroom project can at least lighten up our room but as well as my mood. I believe colors can be greatly involved in terms of the conscious subjective aspect of our feelings or emotion. In fact, they can add the feeling of contentment or joy thus diminish the feeling of desperation. I think the stripe yellow color can bring out an optimistic effect on all possible world for us.

Decorating based on Feng Shui is the basic principle of utilizing color to "ligthen up your life". So in order to bring the balance of Chi or energy, we must encircle ourselves with numerous colors. In preparation to select colors that accentuate a distinct feature of one's mood, it is essential to familiarize how each color normally constitutes. Yet different countries and cultures might have dissimilar ideas or approach in every color, but mostly westerners can relate to the specific colors with these feelings:

Red- anger or love
Orange- enthusiasm
Yellow- joy and happiness
Green- jealousy or good luck
Blue- peace
Purple- creativity and passion
White- cleanliness
Black- sadness

Im sure I will have so much fun in choosing the right color to liven up our bedroom.

P revention is the most excellent way to protect your household from break-ins nowadays. Larceny and burglary are acts of favorable circumstances, just like a door that you can open effortlessly, a dark unlighted house or an unlocked window are perceived to open chances to any crooks.

You will get plenty of information by just watching the local news regarding the state of economy which is in bad shape now. Meaning, every time the economy gets worse, there is more probable growth of home intrusions and break ins. Some individuals turn to stealing because they encounter financial difficulties or desiring possession of their own.

This instance happened to my SIL when their Yukon SUV was being stolen in their garage one fine evening three months ago. She said that was the time when her hubby was on a business trip and was supposedly going home late because of his delayed flight schedule.

That particular night, she put the kids to sleep early and she fell asleep at an instant clueless of what was happening in their home garage. So when her hubby arrived home late, he saw the garage was already opened and the SUV was gone. At that very moment, he knew that something did happen but it was too late for him to do certain action aside from calling the police to report the incident. He checked his family first and foremost and was just grateful they were all sound and safe.

Indeed, it was a great deal of lesson they learned after the incident and the next day, they called the company to install the wireless security system inside their home. I believe, this is a wake up call and setting up a home security system is one right decision to protect our love ones as well as our belongings that we worked so hard to achieve them. However, they took the Platinum package from protectamerica.com because they are relatively low in price with talking control panel, a garage door sensor and motion detector etc.

Indeed, a home security system is one great way to guarantee that you are shielded regardless you are outside or inside your home. It is actually inexpensive and it can keep you from harm in case a break in will occur. You can visit their website now or you can make a call through this specific number 877-470-2751 and you'll get a 2 keychain remotes once you placed an order with them.

I was scouring the web last night and I found another mouth watering Okonomiyaki, which more people give description as a Japanese pizza but more likely as a zesty batter cake.

I find this dish a communal snack but really filling to your satisfaction.

However, I searched the actual meaning of the word ‘okonomiyaki’ which is interpreted in 2 words: okonomi, which implies ‘as you like’ while yaki, stands for ‘grilled’. Unitedly, it brings the Japanese word 'okonomiyaki' as ‘grilled as you like’.

Interesting as always, I wish to try this recipe because Im perpetually fascinated with pizza and this one can be related to pizza because you are the one who decides in picking up garnishes or toppings and separate it into slices.

I f you are following my post here, you could see that our family has a passion for dogs. For now, we have a pug that we named "sleepy" and I could vouch that one great thing of owning a dog is how your pet can take your active schedule to slow down and create some spare time for fun activity.

Our "sleepy" just love the outdoors or going out for a romp, regardless the weather outside is not ideally perfect to walk around. But I know, it creates good effect on us to stay outside and enjoy the fresh air while getting a little bit of workout.

I normally put a dog leash on her while taking our long walks in the park because too often she could be playing boisterously or run fairly fast that I couldn't chase him. But sometimes, she can experience a good workout from a game fetch or tug with her favorite toy that we recently bought for her.

But aside from that, we often take care of her grooming as we believe it is a significant part of our dog's health aside from giving her nutritious food and warm bedding. So with veritable combing and brushing, it actually helps remove the dead hair and dirt to keep away from matting.

Since our pug is a seasonal massive shredder, it is essential to get her grooming done with firm bristle brush and comb. And in regular basis, we clean the wrinkles on her face and forehead making certain that she is completely dry and warm afterwards. We realized through this routine, is one alternative source of showing our affection and attention to her.


I acknowledged that I have an excessive devotion with regards to S-H-O-E-S. It gives me a huge impact when it comes to self esteem. Every time I'm dress up, I feel confident that imparts a lovable, sexy gleams that normally hubby reacts to.

From my viewpoint, dressing in a certain manner is not all about forcing myself into revealing getups but its entirely about feeling great. I love to be stylish and I believe most women realize that. I recognized my sense of fashion when I was in college when I thought clothes are one alternatives to communicate for yourself.

Anyway, I bought this shoes from BCBG recently and I love the hemp detail that really makes these shoe. Since summer has officially started, these pair will look great in jeans and Maxi dress. The fit is perfect and the platform gives wearing high heel comfortable than you anticipate while the sunflower yellow looks fun. Another collection to my closet.


T o shop around brand name clothes that you desire is something out of the question. For the reason that more smart women tend to be practical in choosing their wardrobe and instead resorted to window shop the clothes they appreciate or love.

From my standpoint, there are relatively certain brands that are more superior in quality compared` to others. But of course, designer's clothes are expected to be more overpriced. I do purchase brand name clothes but too often I try not to ruin my wallet. My usual criteria when I am looking for clothes is the quality which for me is more significant than low price yet comparatively affordable.

I remember one acquainted friend in a party who was wearing a brand name clothes that feel very chic and fashionable. She mentioned to me the cost of her dress and I was amazed that it wasn't that expensive at all. She started telling me that she found her elegant dress at PlanetTogs and bought it with a great deal.

So after we got home, I was curious to check their website and found out that mostly their clothes are veritably initiated from celebrated countries. It seems like you are shopping from avant-garde and exclusive styles from the world's most stylish cities like Sao Paulo, Sydney , Singapore, Dubai , Berlin, Belgrade, Ho Chih Minh City and much more.

Furthermore, PlanetTogs.com is an international fashion e-boutique particularizing in high-end designers from up-and-coming fashion hotspots. Almost of their designers are not globally discovered and never penetrated the US market but they are the only retailer in the whole world running these collections. Regardless of their exclusiveness, clothes are marked and priced below the market suggested retail price (MSRP) giving great value to those finicky fashionista longing to get something modern and dissimilar that no one else has.

I guess some of you have watched the Jon & Kate plus 8 on TV, and perhaps you've read as well the buzz from this couple who are in the verge to splitsville caused by controversy surrounded them. Well, more or less people are saying that it's possibly a part of drumming up their coming new episode that was being aired yesterday.

Anyway, that's not the point here, the latest buzz is how people were searching about Kate Gosselin's hair, she thought everyone wishes her Supercuts Supreme mullet 'do. Anyway , you can check the slide show from US Weekly to see your favorite celebs being photoshopped using Kate's hairdo. Do you think you can carry her do, hmmm for me I dont think so.


T he gift of life in my point of view is the greatest present we can afford to our love ones. That's the reason why we bought a Life Alert service to our great grandma to get an aid 24/7 in case of emergencies. Regardless it's fire, intrusion or medical assistance, for only one push with the device, you'll be instantly connected to live help whenever you need it.

Our great grandma shows unwillingness to go into an assisted-living home, as she loves her being independent to live alone in her house. Therefore she normally wears the Break Alert pendant we gave to her in case of a sudden unforeseen crisis . In the recent past, she encountered a mild stroke and was muttering incoherently. She wasn't able to dial her cellphone for assistance. Good thing, she was still able to remember her Life Alert device and she did push it. Therefore, people contacted us and sent out help as soon as possible.

The device system is very simple to set up yourself and doesn't need any installation, all you require is an outlet and a phone jack and you're done. But remember, try to press the "Help" button to try out your machine as frequent as you wish.

However, the growing popularity of Life Alert has not been concentrated mainly on seniors or elderly, it is expanding as well amongst the Boomers whose parents might require a Life Alert. Many adults who are living in solitary can largely benefit having a Life Alert protection. So getting a Life Alert is one smart move to protect your love ones.


W e're back from our 3 days long weekend holiday, was truly exhausted and my feet got swollen due to the long walk we did when we went to explore Disneyland. The place was so crowded you have to wait for 30 minutes to get in a ride or even take a picture with Minnie Mouse. The weather was hot but it got cooler after 5 pm. Whew! good thing we managed to wait that long though my little whiner kept on whining. Perhaps he was overly tired and sleepy from all the rush and bunch of crowds wandering around the place.

But we had a good time, though we were totally drained out physically. I guess the best time to visit is all the way through the offset of Fall as the weather condition will become more cooler with a gentle feel of breeze. Sorry guys, wasn't able to drop by your sites as I got over-fatigued with our trip. But will make sure to visit and drop a line very soon.


I guess it's been a couple of months now that the home of my mother in law is under renovation. They are doing the make over for the ceilings, cabinetry and the bathroom fixtures, I feel like the list seems so endless once you started remodeling your house.

But what I noticed that gives a big difference is the lighting projects that are currently on-going. I believe lighting is essential when renovating your house for the reason that it can truly create an atmosphere inside your home aside from being evidently functional. However, my mom in law was been collecting fine art lamps where she hanged one of it from the ceiling that created the focal point of the living room while highlighting the hardwood floors.

In addition, she was actually asking my opinion concerning lighting accessories, so I tried to help her find some lighting fixtures to be added to her bedroom . My suggestion was to check the selection of George Kovacs lamps which are made of high quality contemporary lighting designs. I like the clean feeling demonstrated in the design of their lights. Im sure these type of light fixtures can bring dissimilar perspective on her entire lifestyle particularly the styles and designs that will give her home project a winner.

Indeed, beautifying your home with high quality items will contribute a great deal of attractiveness and admiration to your home value.

Many people will walk in and out of your life.
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
SMALL MINDS discuss people.

He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses much more;
He who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

Friends, you and me....
You brought another friend....
And then there were 3....
We started our group...
Our circle of friends....
There is no beginning or end....

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.


Indicate to your friends how much you care ....
Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND.
If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.


F riday night is definitely a movie night for our small family ever since we got married. Either we decided to watch movie in a theater or we just dwell at home just watching videos we rented from Blockbuster. Since me and hubby are all considered movie buff, it is already customary to watch movies every week.

And I like the BLOCKBUSTER online idea because it is more cheaper and easier unlike the traditional video stores in our local area. Earlier in time, we used to be a member from one of the video store nearby our place and too often, we experienced paying late fees which I believe so unreasonable.

For that reason, we signed up for the Blockbuster online which is a wise choice since we were freed from the senseless late fee we incurred once we were late in returning the videos. But now, we worry less knowing that we can just return the disc by mail or you can just drop it off to any of the local BLOCKBUSTER store and exchange for a new movie on the spot!

What's good thing about BLOCKBUSTER, it offers new releases and classic DVD’s online and in-store 7 days a week. Even if you rent for a Blu-ray video, BLOCKBUSTER does not charge you extra for Blu-ray Discs like other video stores.

So we took the movie, walked home, watched it, and walked back to return it. No more hassles if you unintentionally forgot to return the disc by next day. Therefore, we've been renting a lot of movies from online recently because of the convenience and economical service like this.

J ust thinking about the ways to make yourself healthy cause you to get sick? Certainly, you can set aside some five minutes of your time from here and there, isn't it?

Anyway, below are the 5 ways to get you on the right track for having a good health.

Dump the drugs
Check thoroughly you med cabinets and throw all your expired medicines. Medications are not as effective as they are after their expiration.

Move it
You've probably heard a few ways to squeeze in more activity throughout the day like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking around your office for a few minutes when you can.

Exercise your brain
Research shows working out your brain can make you sharper and could also reduce the risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. Start a little Sudoku or a crossword puzzle after dinner or during your lunch break - you can always finish it later.

Stretch as you shower
It's the perfect place, really. The hot water helps loosen up your muscles so you can get a good stretch. Stretch your hamstrings, quads, and arms. Maybe do a few shoulder rolls as you shampoo! You'll feel less tension as you start your day.

Take a breather
Grab a quick minute to just close your eyes and focus on your breath. Count to 10 as you slowly inhale through your nose, thinking positive thoughts. Exhale through your mouth, again counting to 10. This time release all the tension and stress out of your body. Repeat if you have a few more seconds.


O ur family is a pet lover, we have a pug that we named "sleepy". We considered "sleepy" as one of the family for the reason that her existence is a part of our daily life. I know taking care of a pet is not that simple as it is essential to keep her in a good condition.

I suppose that everyone who has a pet wishes to be free from stress once you encounter some problem with them. Particularly in a situation that our pet get sick and it makes us worry. Too often, we don't know what to do so we try to ask some advice from a veterinarian.

The fact that tending our pet needs involves both effort and money. This is honestly correct since it is very costly to maintain a healthy pet. Besides, it is essential to get our pet some healthy foods and in certain cases you need to buy them medications once they get sick.

Nevertheless at these times, purchasing your pet medication online does make sense because it can be both cost saving as well as convenient to our busy life. However, it is not intended as a substitute in paying a visit to your local vet in person. Because it is still your doctor that has seen your pet can only determine what is the best for them. If you are always for the benefit of your pet, consider this piece of advice.

Anyway, we are still contemplating of adding another pet to our home, and this time, we are looking for cavoodle puppies for sale rozelle , I just adore their soft floppy ears, large brows and round face. They said that the Cavoodle just loves human companionship aside from being considered as an intelligent dog and one more, this pet doesn't demand a lot of exercise.


A re you wondering why your nails turned yellowish? One good friend of mine had experienced this awkward predicament because of her using all the chic nail polish colors and been painting her nails without using a base coat. And you know what's next to happen right? Yeah, she ended up with yellowish nails. You will encounter this too if you dont pay attention to the advice and making sure to use a base coat.

These are the tips that I found from the web in case your nails turned yellowish.

You have some alternatives:
1. Buff your nails - with a 4 way buffer and some oil (Solar Oil is great, but open your cabinets - olive oil is really my favorite). This will take off the top layer of your nails though, so if your nails are weak, this isn’t a great option.

2. Bleach your nails - use a lemon cut in half, and swoosh your nails around in it and leave it to dry for a few minutes. Another alternative is to soak them for a bit in some hydrogen peroxide. These are a little harsh, so if your nails are peely and dry, this is not a good option.

3. Paint them until the yellow grows out - and be sure and use base coat!!


M y hubby and I will be celebrating our 5th anniversary soon and I realized that the common gift recommendations can only give you a little bit more of confusion. The tradition of gift giving for wedding anniversary can be drawn back to the Middle ages where it was believed that stableness was being developed in a union with each passing year. Hence gifts constitute that constancy ought to be acknowledged to celebrate the marriage.

Last year anniversary I gave him a golf set which he really adored because he is into golfing as a hobby in the recent past. Therefore, this time I want a gift with a modern twist, I am leaning with the idea of purchasing a new watch for him since I noticed he is not keen about luxury watches or gadgets. I guess a Tag Heuer ,
a Cartier or a Movado watch makes a fantastic gift for hubby this time, particularly he
doesn't usually wear any adornments otherwise his wedding band. These are the three watches that can be safely given to him because he likes these designer brands.

Further, aside from that watch that I've mentioned, I am contemplating to bring him to the place where we experienced our first kiss :) at the same time, show him the box full of our memories. I supposed I picked the suitable presents, or should I try more harder?

I remember the time while I was still in high school, I got so excited to own a locker so I could put all my belongings inside. I was so glad to realize that carrying books to every class was no longer inconvenient.

But I have also some recollection of losing books, clothing and other stuffs when I was still in elementary merely because I didn't learn to keep myself more organized in putting away my stuff. Perhaps I was still young and probably didn't know how to secure my own belongings.

Supposedly, school should be a place where you can earn the knowledge to live in the actual world without the feeling of restraint from getting burned by it. Yet, you need to deal with the property stealing in daily basis. As we get more high tech with the gadgets like iPods or cellphones, more thieves are being lured to find more motivations in stealing your stuffs. No wonder putting more school lockers to school hallways and classrooms can create a worthwhile addition for safety and convenience.

Therefore, I believe guardians should take into consideration in buying a sturdy lock so students can assure the safety of their belongings in their lockers. There are so many lockers on sale available in the market such as steel lockers , wood lockers or even the Gym lockers. They are strong enough to keep your property from theft or intentional damage. Thus students should be mindful of the risk in passing out their lockers combination or sharing lockers with common friends.

But in spite of your kids' attempt to refrain from theft , it is likely inevitable. The best way to do to avoid this kind of problem is to refrain from displaying your valuable belongings and never leave your property unattended. Or the least, better leave your valuables at home.

I t's so amazing how days fly too fast, and before we realize it, its already month of June. But my best loved month of the year starts in October because it will signals the cool air yet sunny day in Cali. It's also the time to anticipate the forthcoming holidays like Halloween,Thanksgiving and of course Christmas. With that in mind, I can imagine the smell of the pumpkin spice candle while engaging myself in a little bit of housecleaning and organizing. See? so much stuff waiting in front of me.
Anyway, notice the above saying? Do you know how does it mean to be true to yourself? I must admit, Im sort of a slight perfectionist, I understand that it is not actually an ideal thing because oftentimes I cant do anything correctly too. Being a mom, a wife or a friend I often find myself pleasing others but in certain occasion, I never cease to satisfy my own will. In this universe full of skepticism and doubts, I guess it is more easier for us to feel blue or inadequate.

But for me, I try to control when I need to put a stop during my busy days and just enjoy my baby. Watching my baby play and laugh, kissing him or smelling his neck, I am just glad and thankful right there and right then. Of course he is not going to stay little forever so I cherish each moment with him. So gotta be true to ourselves.

A nother email I received from a good friend that is worth sharing is the prominent Millau Viaduct that was opened to traffic last 17th of December 2007 that established modern touchstone in construction and planning design. Not to mention that is sets the record for largest cable-stayed bridge in Europe.

The Millau Viaduct is considered as the highest bridge in the world. The bridge has 1000 ft height which is even higher than the famous Eiffel tower. They said that you will experience the unelaborated sensation of the clouds on your face while riding on that bridge. Meaning you can sense how it feels like while walking above the clouds.


Millau is in southern France, and this viaduct is a key link on the A75 road south from Paris.
Interesting as what they said, the Millau viaduct is not straight, a straight route can cause sensation of floating for drivers. The curve is 20 km in range with a slight inclination of 3% to
get clear visibility and give assurance to the driver.

Millau Viaduct France (In French le Viaduc de Millau) is one of the most awesome civil engineering project. It is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau in France. It was designed by structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and architect Norman Foster. One of the summit of this bridge is at a height of 343 meters)1125 ft) which makes it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world.

N ow in today's generation, the most favorable technology being used by large number of people is the Internet. Having the comfort of using this technology, we could get any access to whatever informative articles, read the recent news and other interesting source of information in just a click away.

Furthermore, it requires little effort in downloading music, photo, video and any files you can imagine. But in certain cases, while transferring these files is really time consuming that makes you wait forever to get your files in a complete data format.

Therefore, you need to have the fastest Internet connection to get the files done in a shorter period of time. Your wait is over because Charter has unveiled the newly improved Ultra60 Mbps service which is considered as the fastest Internet speed in St Louis market as well as in the US territory. Ultra60 is presently accessible in St. Louis but soon will be rolled out to different areas along with other high speed products throughout 2009.

This Ultra60 Mbps service from Charter is part of the elaborate and systematic plan of action to render customers with the quickest Internet speed conveniently available in a period where high-speed connection to multimedia sites is vital. The speed will enable customers to use the Internet in all new directions that include gaming, movies, telecommuting with mega-files and much more at super high speeds.

I believe, Internet with a speed of 60 Mbps, you'll entirely experience a different degree of scouring the web besides, you can perform multi-tasking in a manner nobody has ever been able to do erstwhile. You can learn more information by checking the Ultra60 Information Page here.

Charter’s Ultra60 Mbps service is the first of the Phatband speeds that Charter will be rolling out this year. PhatBand takes broadband to the next level and has created it’s next level of super-fast tier service. Hardcore Web gamers love PhatBand’s ability to download patches in record time, and virtually eliminates lag in their gaming. Charter’s PhatBand has turned DSL into the new dial-up Internet service where DSL technology can’t keep up with cable.

P urchasing with credit cards can take you more quickly than printing online form order or mailing your order using your personal check or cash. Indeed, in the present generation where plastic is a necessity, almost everybody holds credit cards on their wallet. It is a requirement when you are renting cars, making hotel reservations and even purchasing online.

But the thing is, some individuals don't meet the requirements as various credit card companies are getting stringent with their requisite therefore, they are restricted to get a credit card. Yet, there are some companies who charge high interest rates and they made them available for you but paying additional amount is not that worthy at all.

But being able to travel free from taking cash in our pocket, or having access to finance the unprepared purchases, these plastics are sort of safety and convenience.

Therefore, if you find it hard in applying for credit card, you can check the creditcardsclub.com where you will learn further about the credit card ratings and reviews. The site is full of information that will enable you to compare best no annual fee credit cards. Study their thorough reviews of the no annual fee credit cards which I believe excel from the group. They also give reviews from top credit card banks and other institutions.

So if you find yourself unfamiliar with credit cards, set aside your time and learn from their useful credit card guides.

I was caught dumbfounded by someone I know told me that he thought respecting our elders was a foolish act since not everyone is worthy to be respected for the reason of his/her age.

But how about merely displaying them politeness and common behavior? A concise explanation of a senior is, somebody who has lived longer than we do, so they have collected more knowledge, experiences and much wisdom. We don’t have to match with their wisdom, but recognizing that there may be some useful knowledge of information that comes from their experience sound gracious.

Likewise, I believe giving consideration to convey appreciation to a concerned elder who assisted in setting the way or care for you or a family member who came before you, such as a mother or uncle.

Our manners do make us a man. Kids must be accustom on how to behave properly from a very tender age. Educating them the right manners and conduct first start at home.


I guess it's been two years since my family has taken a summer vacation after I got pregnant with my baby. I believe it's the right time to plan for a vacation since our toddler started treading all over our place now and it would be more fun to bring him along with us. I cannot envision a summer vacation without frolicking the beach. So we consider looking for the best summer destination where we can get an all over tan.

So the foremost thing to secure a great vacation is to plan ahead of time because it requires money and time. One place that caught my attention is the Kissimmee , home to world-famous theme parks and cool water parks with tons of attractions that would keep my family occupied. However, I would love to bring my summer clothes as well as my bikini because I learned that they have less than four water parks over there.

Aside from that, I've been dreaming to experience the wildlife on a swamp tours or scenic lake tour, or explore the air boat ride and eco adventures. The fun things to do are endless from dining to shopping or nature trekking. For my small family, the attraction of outdoor activities can be joyfully anticipated to start a fun vacation.

But one thing that makes Kissimme even more attractive is that Kissimmee is giving away weekend getaways as well as a week long vacations. The first draw was already held last April 1st and May 1st but there is still another drawing to be held on June 1st, 2009. The weekend getaways comprise of 3 days and 2 nights vacation for two or a week long vacations for four. So why not try yourself to enter the sweepstakes and get a free summer vacation at Kissimmee!

I am actually anticipating this summer to get a much needed vacation and I will keep you updated with our getaway. As might be expected, I'll surely take lots and lots of pictures so I can post it here and simultaneously you guys can relish the vacation right along with us.

I just found this topic interesting because they said that, the matter most women have to realize is that a man's desire to get involve in a relationship with a woman is mainly sexual and visual. While a man is young, it doesn't require a lot of visual stimulation to get sexual. But once he begins to grow older and his sexual peak is deteriorating, it demands much better visuals to stimulate sexual.

And for this reason, he is inclined to look for a much younger women in the hope to stimulate his declining sexuality. It's not necessarily that these young women don't show much interest on him but likely he is not interested in them either other than stimulating sexual drive.

He doesn't have similar desire for a company in his geezerhood that women have, unlike most matured women who get pleasure from a broad form of activities they would love sharing with their partner. That include traveling, entertaining or family gatherings etc.

But the thing is, older unmarried men are not fascinated with a female company for these things. Instead, they prefer playing golf or get some hobbies from other men to experience intellectual companionship.

Honestly, I have known lots of guys who simply hold their eyes for youthful women. What is it they practically prefer more for young women?

Here are couple of ideas:

1. Bridging the Maturity Gap.
People say that maturity from women develop more quicker than men. So for men who are not seeking for a commitment, its evident appeal for them to hook up with a younger women who are yet seeding their wild grains.

2. Who’s Your Daddy?
We cant argue the fact that mostly men take a remarkable gratification
in acting the part of a breadwinner and guardian.

3. Ego Trippin’.
Nothing in this world could makes men bloated with ego than the attention of a charming youthful ladies who favor older men more than to their masculine peers.



Conclusion: In one point, older men will invariably date young women, but mostly will realize that kind of relationships are unlikely to last. Maybe some will perceive from their instincts and look for a women closer their age who attribute same interests, goals as well as energy levels.

Please note that these are purely an opinion but do you agree with it?


I notice one of the least favorable thing while exercising in the gym is the boredom factor that I easily feel once I started working out. Particularly on the treadmill or stationary bicycle that's why they put a big TV screen in front of it to dull our mind.

At this time, I am so addicted in playing the Wii sports but still I am contemplating of spicing up my daily routine of exercise by doing cycling which is more challenging and lots of fun. I believe riding on a bike is exciting in different ways for different people but I am more interested in the benefits of my health.

Realizing today where a lot of people are beleaguered by numerous disease, to keep fit is necessary and exercise is a must. With a proper exercise, we can continue to maintain our body to become fit and sound away from any illness.

Therefore, I started searching for an exercise gears like biking shorts as well as the bike shoes to prepare myself in gearing up the neighborhood. I've done a lot of research in purchasing a mountain bike or a comfortable bike and this weekend I plan on purchasing the first bike I'm going to use.

Still if I take this biking thing as a hobby at least it will gives me more pleasure as well as time to keep fit. I understand that it is more difficult for us to spend more time in working out on a daily basis. Perhaps its about time to get my toddler a new bike for kids so I can him bring along with me while doing my new found hobby. After all, riding a bicycle can create a new enjoyment while relaxing after a long hours of working.

A ll this time, I thought braids are only for kids.. not anymore! The fresh look for the summer are the new different braid styles as what can you see among celebrities sporting this elegant look. It is great either for casual event or a fancy gathering.

I guess these modern braid hairdo are the expression of likeness from the history, but they are veering to be the recent new fashion for this year.

Braided hair is a sophisticated look that incorporates your whole hair, not just the ends. It's also artistically beautiful, and can be intimidating to try at first, but is really much easier to execute than you'd expect.

I love the way it looks to Drew Barrymore that showed off the intricate Grecian style hairdo - an updo, its really simple yet tasteful. Since braids are making waves on and off the red carpet, here's how to rope the latest trend into your look this summer.
