burlap drapes

After our wedding, we live at my parents house.  Me and my husband's dream is to have our own house.  I love a house that is nice and clean, simple and neat, not too big and not too small.  I love to put a veranda for us to chill-out or talk with friends and family.  A playground and swimming pool also are nice ideas for the kids to enjoy during weekends and holidays.  It is also nice to have basement in case of emergency.  I want our master bedroom to have our own bathroom inside with bath tub and jacuzzi, then with a big sliding door for us too see the view of the garden that have lots of plants and fountains.  To have a nice look of the house, we must have beautiful design of curtains or drapes. You can canvass online for drapes but many said that burlap drapes are pretty nice. As you know, curtains come in a variety of shapes, materials, sizes, colors and patterns, and they often have their own sections within department stores, while some shops are completely dedicated to selling curtains. Curtains vary according to cleanability, ultraviolet light deterioration, oil and dust retention, noise absorption, fire resistance, and life span. Curtains may be moved by hand, with cords, by press-button pads or remote-controlled computers. Measuring the curtain size needed for each window varies greatly according to the type of curtain needed, window size, and type and weight of curtain.  Cannot wait to tell my husband about getting our dream house, I am so excited.  Very much excited!

father's condition

My dad was confined at the hospital last December 6.  At first, it only started with a dizziness.  Then my mom said let's go to the hospital for check-up.  When they arrived at the hospital, my dad had high blood pressure.  The blood pressure did not go down so he was confined so that there will be series of tests.  The next day, my mom called and said that he had mild stroke and he has problem swallowing.  He had also pneumonia, so he needs to be transferred at the ICU.  He was restrained because he wants to go down and go home, he also wants to pull the tubes that are attached to him like the NGT, dextrose and catheter.  We stayed at the ICU for 2 weeks, then when the doctor said we can go home and continue treating him and feed him using the NGT.  But my dad is hard-headed, he won't listen to us.  He removed the NGT tube twice and we were giving him food through spoon-feed slowly because he might choke.  But he was sick more, that's why he went back to the ICU because he already lacked oxygen.  As of today, my mom said that his lungs are congested.  Please help me pray that he will be good and well.

used les paul guitar at musicians friend

Before, I want to learn how to play the guitar. What I did was find a songbook and follow the pattern keys. At first, it was easy but the following keys are kinda hard. The ending, I stopped playing guitar and play the piano/keyboard. When I met my husband, I knew that he loves playing guitar. He did not study or trained, he studied the keys by himself. I bought him a simple guitar, not the electric guitar because it was kinda expensive. To save money, I will buy him a used les paul guitar at musicians friend. No matter where you are in the world, they will help you find musical instruments that fit you, your music and your style. The les paul guitar is one of the four vintage electric guitars used by professional musicians like Paul McCartney, Slash, Eric Clapton and many more. Because of the great popularity of these models, musicians are listed only if their use of these instruments was especially significant. 

Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas to all!  Well, our celebration had sad times and good times.  Sad times because my dad was sick and needed to be admitted again at the hospital (ICU).  Good because it was my daughter's birthday, December 25.  We had potluck lunch at my cousins place and my daughter blew the candle of her birthday cake.  My mother did not come to the party so that she can take care of my dad.  After the potluck party we went to my in-law's place for sleepover.

Every November, we visit our love ones who are now in heaven.  Last October 31, we went to the cemetery earlier instead of November 1 to avoid traffic.  Usually, we go in the afternoon but changed it to morning breakfast because lately it usually rains in the afternoon.  After lunch, my daughter and I went to the mall to join trick or treat.  It is her 3rd time to join and she was was happy.

McDonald's drops Heinz Ketchup

I really love eating at McDonald's and I always order my favorite, Cheeseburger Meal with large fries and regular coke.

McDonalds said it was dropping ketchup king Heinz as a supplier, citing management changes at Heinz that put the company closer to rival Burger King. 

McDonald’s said it was ending a relationship of over 40 years as it axed Heinz from its supplier list. 

"As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time," it said. 

In February US investment star Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway together with Brazil's 3G Capital took over Heinz in a $28 billion deal. 

That move brought Heinz closer to Burger King, which is controlled by 3G. 

The change would not be a large blow to Heinz. McDonald’s said it only used Heinz ketchup in two US markets, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh, as well as some foreign markets. 

McDonald’s said in a statement that it would work with Heinz "to ensure a smooth and orderly transition of the McDonald’s restaurant business." 

The company said they "are confident that there will be no impact to our business, our customers and our great tasting food at McDonald's."

been very busy

It has been more that 2 months since my last blog.  Since my husband arrived from work months ago, I was very busy with my life.  There are very special occasions that was celebrated and for me it was very memorable.  I was having also problems with my laptop because it was needed to be reformated, I think it was a virus.  

When my husband arrived, we celebrated his birthday together with relatives.  We had grilled fish, pork and fresh green salads.  


A week after hubby's celebration, it was my daughter's opening in her school.  Then the following week was Father's Day.


Then comes my nephew's 3rd birthday, Leedon Vincent.  After that it was Mika's classmate's birthday, Lovy Chin.  Next, att Mika's school they celebrated Nutrition Month.


That month end, a pretty baby girl was added to our family baby Savannah.  Then my brother arrived for his vacation. 


My cousin-inlaw arrived from the States because her mom died, there got the chance to bond with the family.


My hubby's grandmother and his uncle from Australia arrived, in time for baby Savanna's dedication.  Another bonding moments with my inlaws.


Then it was Mika's Speechfest at school.


Then celebrated my mother's birthday together with the siblings and their family.


Then it was me from my hubby to go back to work, will not see  him for 8 months.  Sad to say that he's not here to celebrate Christmas, New Year, our anniversary, the kids and my birthday.  But it's okay because I know that God is with him to protect and give him more strength to carry all the work that he will encounter.  Good thing we can talk though  internet, thanks to the technology now.

Apple vs. Samsung

Our technology today is getting bigger and bigger.  Many ideas are popping to be introduced in the market.  Before, I am not into gadgets but know I am a fan.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I really love it that much but I also want an Iphone too but they say that the brand Samsung is much better than Apple.  In the latest article that I read, it says that the US overturns Apple ban in blow to Samsung. The White House stepped into a patent war between Apple and Samsung Saturday by overturning a decision that banned the sale of certain iPads and iPhones in the United States. US Trade Representative Michael Froman announced the rare move -- a blow to South Korean Samsung -- saying in a letter he had decided to "disapprove" the exclusion order by the US International Trade Commission. Surveys out late last month showed that Apple's iPhone has been squeezed by competition from Samsung and other Asian manufacturers. Apple's share of the global smartphone market fell to 13.1 percent in the April-June period, according to research firm IDC. A separate report by Strategy Analytics gave Apple 13.6 percent, but noted that it was the US firm's lowest share since 2010.

fireplace mantel shelves at agee woodworks

In our country we do not have fireplace in each home because we do not have winter or snow. It only rains or mostly it is very hot.  There are fireplaces only in cold places like farms that are very cold especially early morning. Fireplaces are used at the present time mostly for the relaxing ambiance they create. Historically they were used for the practical purposes of heating, cooking, and heating water for laundry and domestic uses. A fire is contained in a firebox or firepit; a chimney or other flue allows exhaust to escape. It is my dream to have our own home. When the time comes I will go to a place that is cold and build my own rest house and I will put a fireplace. To add more beauty in my home, fireplace mantel shelves at agee woodworks is perfect because you can put decorations and picture frames that will you will surely treasure. But did you know that there are bad effects when there are fireplaces especially in our health? With regard to adults, studies show that prolonged inhalation of wood smoke contributed to chronic bronchitis, chronic interstitial lung disease, pulmonary arterial hypertension and corpulmonale, and altered pulmonary immune defense mechanisms. While adverse effects on adults are notable, children appear to be at greatest risk.

Real-Life Barbie

Real-Life Barbie? Model Created Look to Spread Beliefs

Since I was a little girl, I really love playing barbie dolls. Before, I let my mom buy me different kinds of barbie dolls with different dresses. But as I grow older, I have more important interests but still I love barbie doll. Online I there are articles about human barbie dolls and as of this moment I am reading one article now. A young Russian model who reportedly spent a half-million dollars to turn herself into a real-life Barbie doll is indeed quite real and not the result of a computer-generated image. Even so, many of the stories written about her are not the real deal. Contrary to many headlines, there's no evidence that Lukyanovais actually trying to emulate the world's most popular doll; the word "Barbie" does not appear anywhere on Lukyanova's website nor in any of the available material attributed to her. Furthermore, a Google search of images of Lukyanova reveals plenty of airbrushed glamour shots, but conspicuously absent are photos of her with her supposed idol, Barbie. Surely if this aspiring model's claim to fame were centered on trying to achieve Barbie's supposedly idealized proportions, she would have taken many photos of her with the doll she's trying to look like.

FYI: Contact Lenses

Just want to share to you this information I got in Facebook, especially those who are wearing contact lenses. 

A 21 year old girl had worn a pair of contact lenses during a barbecue party.(An event or meal at which
food is cooked outdoors over an grill or fire) While barbecuing he stared at the fire charcoals
continuously for 2-3 minutes. 

After a few minutes, She started to scream for help and moved rapidly, jumping up and down. No one in the party knew why she was doing this? Then she admitted into the Hospital, the doctor said she'll be blind permanently because of the contact lenses that he had worn.

Contact lenses are made by plastics, and the heat from the charcoal melted his contact lenses.

What makes a girl attractive?

Hubby and me are married for more that 7 years. He said that he was attracted to me before because my aura is different. Usually, he likes women with big boobs and sexy butts, LOL.

1. Anyone who says looks aren’t important is a liar. - First of all, let’s get this out of the way.
2. Nothing matters if she can’t carry a conversation. - Long legs, perfect skin, fine figure.
3. Even the perfect physical package can be ruined by bad grammar. - This can be a deal breaker. Carrying a conversation is great because guys can see if the girl is into at least some similar interests.
4. Don’t underestimate the significance of good hygiene. - The prettiest face and even the most flowery words can easily be undermined by bad breath, bad teeth, or just plain old body odor.
5. Loving a girl’s smile is important. - Graphic artist Lance shares this simple truth because, “if you love a girl’s smile, it gives you a reason to keep making her happy.”
6. Ideally, all of these things come together in one package. That total package is what every guy is looking for.

Talking on your mobile phone may spike blood pressure

Almost everybody have a mobile phone, am I correct? We use it in our day to day routine/activity. Some cannot live without their mobile phones. We also know that using too much cellphone can cause illness because of its radiation. In +Yahoo , there is an article that I read that talking on your mobile phone may spike blood pressure, and I will share it to you. New research finds that talking on your mobile phone can increase your blood pressure.

Researchers from Italy's Guglielmo da Saliceto Hospital enlisted 94 men and women who had mild to moderate high blood pressure. Subjects randomly received phone calls on their mobile, seated in a comfortable chair alone in a room, while their blood pressure measurements were taken via an automated device. The team saw that subjects' blood pressure readings jumped to 129/82 from 121/77 while they chatted on a mobile phone.

But for those who talked on their phones more than 30 times each day, the rise in systolic, or the top number, blood pressure was less dramatic, the study found.

While the researchers aren't clear as to why this happens, study lead Dr. G. Crippa speculates two possible reasons: "The subset of patients who were more accustomed to phone use were younger, which could show that younger people are less prone to be disturbed by telephone intrusions."

He adds: "Another possibility is that people who make more than 30 calls per day may feel more reassured if the mobile phone is activated since they are not running the risk of missing an opportunity."

The findings were presented Wednesday at the annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Hypertension in San Francisco.

Xikar Accessories

They say that smoking is bad for your health but they say cigar is much better than cigarette. What makes them different?  According in an article I read, cigar and cigarette differ in size and in tobacco use. Cigarettes are generally made from cheaper, lower grade tobacco and there is evidence that additional chemicals are added to make them more addicting and they are designed to be inhaled into the lungs so that you get the full effect of the chemicals. Cigars, on the other hand, are usually made of premium quality tobacco and are often composed of several different kinds for the wrapper, and then the layers. The cigar tobacco is aged under stringent conditions, and cigars have a variety of flavors depending upon type, age, origin, etc. Some says cigars are also meant to be savored, with a long smoke time, as opposed to cigarettes which burn faster. As far as I know, cigarettes do not have accessories but cigars have. They offer great selections of cigar accessories especially Xikar accessories from cigar lighters, cutters, leather cases, humidification and more. They also are proud to offer a lifetime warranty on all Xikar products. So, if you feel that is fails to live up to our promise of fit, finish & function, simply return it to them and they will cheerfully repair or replace your product within 2 weeks under our 100% Total Satisfaction Guarantee!

phone cases

It is really my dream to have a new cellphone. My last mobile phone that I have is MyPhone (dual sim) but it was broken. Good thing I have a free unit from my postpaid plan, the Nokia Asha 306 but still I need one for my other network sim. Actually, I have 2 sims. My hubby promised me an android phone last year, the Samsung Galaxy S3 but still nothing. What I did was convinced him that I really need it, ASAP. Good thing that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is on sale and hubby told me to buy it immediately. So like, I was very happy with my new phone. I also bought some back case for it, see photos below:

meditation cushion

We all know that doing exercise is good to our body. Did you know that there are 7 benefits of regular physical activity? Exercise controls weight, combats health conditions and diseases, improves mood, boosts energy, promotes better sleep, puts the spark back into your sex life and can be fun. But as I have watched and browse online, many do yoga for their daily routine. Yoga is a commonly known generic term for the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India with a view to attain a state of permanent peace. When doing yoga, you need to have a mat or a meditation cushion that you will use. Choosing a proper mediation cushion, it depends on a few criteria including meditation posture, proper alignment, comfort, and the look and feel of the cushion. The human body is neither flat nor predictably curved. Without proper support, your body will succumb to the shape of the surface on which it rests. Which Meditation Cushion is for You? Browse online for different kinds/types of meditation cushions that suite your needs.

Eating more protein may help you shed weight

One way to lose weight? Eating more protein could be a guiding goal, at least according to a new survey.

While dieters are faced with myriad options for shedding extra kilos, University of Minnesota researchers wanted to see how simply eating more protein could affect the weight-loss efforts of middle-aged women.

In the study, 1,824 women aged 40 to 60 years old were asked what they knew about dietary protein and if they ate more protein as a way to prevent weight gain. Women were also asked to correctly identity "good protein sources," such as salmon, and the recommended amount of protein in the diet.

"Eating more protein" -- which could be as simple as opting for fish in lieu of pasta -- was reported by 43 percent of the women as a way to prevent weight gain. When researchers looked at current protein consumption and changes in weight over the following two years, they found that the women who reported "eating more protein" had lost weight.

The survey was published in the May edition of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

A separate study promoting protein-rich diets for weight loss is from the University of Missouri-Columbia, which found that eating a protein-packed breakfast can help you shed weight. In the study, dieters who consumed 35 grams of protein for breakfast snacked less throughout the day and reported more control over food cravings. Findings appeared in March in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

When I gave birth to my two lovely and pretty daughters, I am the happiest mother in the world.  But when it comes to the point that they get sick, I am really worried about it.  But I know that the doctors will help me find a cure to their sickness.  Everytime we visit our kid's pediatrician especially to the new borns, the first thing to do is to put them in a pediatric exam table and examine them like weigh or measure.  Their are different designs of pediatric exam table but what caught my attention when I was browsing the internet, there are designs that can make the kids will really enjoy.  Some selection  includes zoo animals, sea animals, fire engines, trains, space rockets, sports, castles and race cars. Online, they offer a wide variety of pediatric exam tables to meet the your needs and put your small patients at ease. Their supplies provides an entertaining and calming focus for children while improving diagnosis and treatment for these often frightened patients.

Election 2013

Yesterday, was election day for Senators (National), Mayor, Vice-Mayor, Governor, Vice-Governor, Congressman and Councilors (Local).  It was a long process to vote because you need to follow the long line who are also voting.  If you go early, you finish voting early.  For me, my mom and my brother, we went around 9am and waited for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  For my mom, she should be priority because she is a senior citizen already but she chose to fall in line with us (for experience).  

pool heat pumps

Heat pumps use electricity to capture heat and move it from one place to another. They don't generate heat. Heat pumps are designed to move thermal energy opposite the direction of spontaneous heat flow. In plumbing applications, a heat pump is sometimes used to heat or preheat water for swimming pools or domestic water heaters; the heat energy removed from an air-conditioned space may be recovered for water heating. According in an article I read, higher efficiency pool heat pumps usually use scroll compressors versus the reciprocal compressors of standard units. Pool heat pumps works efficiently as long as the outside temperature remains above the 45ºF–50ºF range. The cooler the outside air they draw in, the more energy they use. When selecting a heat pool heat pump, you should consider its size, efficiency and costs. In order to heat swimming pool in an eco- friendly energy efficient manner, it is important to size your heat pump correctly. With proper installation and maintenance, heat pump pool heaters can last 10 years or more. Because your heat pump has many moving and electrical parts, you should have your pool heater tuned up each year by a technician. Warranties will vary according to the manufacturer and should be provided along with your owner's manual.

pneumatic switches

The pneumatic pressure switch or combines a pressure sensing element and a spool valve to produce a switching device with an adjustable setpoint. The assembly is non-electric, using only air or inert gas in the switch unit. Uses of pneumatic pressure switches includes switching off an electrically driven gas compressor when a set pressure is achieved in the reservoir, switching off a gas compressor, whenever there is no feed in the suction stage and many more. Pneumatic switching relays block, divert, or bleed pneumatic air lines when pilot pressure is changed from one specific value to another. Pneumatic switch will activate adaptive devices using air. Almost any device including communication aids, environmental controls, switch-adapted toys or computer access devices can be activated by the pneumatic switch.

15 essential fruits to include in your diet

I really love fruits, especially mangoes, bananas, avocado, grapes, watermelon, etc. I do not eat guyabano, just don't like it. Fruits are indispensable. Its fiber, water, minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants keep us well. 

1. Watermelon beats the scorching summer heat with 95% water and its electrolytes.

2. Cantaloupe/muskmelon is an excellent source of phytochemicals – vitamin A and C.

3. Kiwi fruit with vitamin C, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids from its numerous edible seeds have potential properties of a natural blood thinner.

4. Pomegranate an exotic fruit is an antidote for heart ailments due to its polyphenolic anti-oxidant compound - punicalagin. 

5. Citrus fruits are synonymous to vitamin C and vitality. Well you may be allured with vitamin C loaded orange juice but ascorbic acid on exposure to light and air gets oxidized to dehydroascorbic acid, highly unstable and further breaks down to 2,3-diketo-L-gulonic acid.

6. Star fruit, Bilimbi or Carambola with its high vitamin A, vitamin C and zinc content is used as a cure for acne and oily skin. 

7. Rope in raw Papaya as meat tenderizer, as it has a powerful digestive enzyme papain/papinase that breaks down tough meat fibres. 

8. Amla is a powerhouse of vitamin C, harbouring 20 times more that of an Orange. 

9. Our own berry of India – Zizyphus, commonly known as Ber or Jujuba is under-utilized.

10. Avocado, the only fruit with high fat content of 25% is high in mono-unsaturated fats.

11. Pineapple, an excellent source of vitamin C is a natural digestive aid and a meat tenderizer as it contains a proteolytic enzyme - bromelain. 

12. Guava, a powerhouse of vitamin C, protects us from cold and flu with 4 - 10 times more vitamin C than citrus fruits.

13. Apples contain quercetin an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties.

14. Grapes have garnered attention due to its polyphenol - resveratrol that promotes longevity and several antioxidants shielding cardiovascular system. 

15. Tamarind pulp is commonly used in Asian cuisine and Worcestershire sauce due to its pleasing sour flavor.

business credit line

If you want to open a business and you do not have enough budget to pay full, you can always get a business credit line. In shot, some call it as loan. If you loan, there is always interest when it comes to monthly payments. Like also in credit cards, if I have not enough money, I use credit card to purchase what I want then you can pay it maximum of 12 months depending on your item that you purchase. The difference between a business loan and a business line of credit is one of flexibility. A business loan gives you a set amount of money for a specific purchase, which you pay back according to preset monthly amounts. A business line of credit works more like a credit card: you have a credit limit that you borrow against when you need it, and you make monthly payments that vary according to the current balance of the credit line. A line of credit is any credit source extended to a government, business or individual by a bank or other financial institution. It is effectively a source of funds that can readily be tapped at the borrower's discretion. Interest is paid only on money actually withdrawn. Lines of credit are often extended by banks, financial institutions and other licensed consumer lenders to creditworthy customers to address liquidity problems; such a line of credit is often called a personal line of credit.

It is almost 8 months since my hubby left for work abroad.  Thank God that there is technology because we can talk via Skype or Facebook.  As of today, I am now counting the days because he will arrive next month.  I wish that my youngest daughter will not cry whenever she sees him or carries him.  

baby Raine wants to chat with daddy, LOL...  ^_^

Olive Oil

Do you feel hungry all the time? Well, I love to eat aside from the meal that we have everyday. I am still craving like chocolates or chips and sodas too. There is a study, add some olive oil to your diet. Olive oil is already famed for being a heart-healthy part of the Mediterranean diet. But now a new study finds that it may have a surprising benefit. Unlike low-fat food products and other natural fats, olive oil helps to regulate the sensation of feeling full after eating, which could help keep your fingers off the nibbles between meals. Did you know that olive oil contains a wide variety of valuable antioxidants that are not found in other oils. Epidemiological studies suggest that olive oil has a protective effect against certain malignant tumours in the breast, prostate, endometrium and digestive tract.

rfid credit card

A big number of serious crimes are hard to solve especially when it comes to credit cards. I have a credit card, so far I am not a victim and I pray that I will not be a victim. There are lot of ways in stealing your credit card aside from pick-pocketing.  Because of the technology today, did you know that they can now steal your wallet without reaching into your pocket just by using an electronic device. But how can we keep rfid credit card safe? There is this question I read in an article that does RFID make it easier to steal? They said that thieves could get your card information remotely through a scanner, but adds that they probably wouldn't be able to use it. Unlike magnetic stripe cards, RFID credit cards encrypt a cardholder's information. To access a consumer's account, thieves not only have to scan the card, they also have to break the card issuer's encryption. That is very scary! The good news is that electronic pick-pocketing is easily preventable by using rfid blocking wallets, sleeves and badge holders.

What your hairstyle says about you???


 Fashion is really trending right now. I am jealous to girls who are very fashionable like the way they dress and also the hairstyle to have too. For me, I do not know how to be fashionable. I just wear my simplest outfit from day to day except for my hair. Before, I really love my long black hair but since I ironed it during my brother wedding my hair is already damaged. We all do have different types of hair, mine is I think straight and thick. How about you, what your hairstyle says about you??? 

 1. Wavy hair - can be difficult to maintain

 2. Pixie cut - considered to be a very bold and daring hairstyle since it is very difficult to carry off

 3. Bangs - are considered to be very flirtatious and saucy

 4. Bob haircut - defines a very focused; no nonsense woman, who exudes power as well elegance with her hairstyle and personal style 

5. Ultra short bob - symbolises an assertive woman who has a strong sex appeal

 6. Straight long hair - shows your youthful and fuss free style

local brochure printing

I am a Marketing graduate but I did not use it when I graduated because my first work was with a hotel. In the hotel I worked, I am mostly at the front desk entertaining guest who will check-in and also handling cash for those who check-out. After 1 year and 4 months I resigned because of some reasons. I went back to work months after in a school as a branch cashier but it did not last also. To make the story short, I am not working right now because I am taking care of my 2 daughters. In the hotel and school that I worked, I did some marketing. Marketing is the process of communicating the value of a product or service to customers. Marketing might sometimes be interpreted as the art of selling products, but sales is only one part of marketing. As the term "Marketing" may replace "Advertising" it is the overall strategy and function of promoting a product or service to the customer. When it comes to advertising, brochures are really come in handy so that people may read understand what the product or service are. If you want some fliers or brochures, my cousin have a local brochure printing shop just around downtown area. If you do not want to travel far for orders, you can call them by phone or visit their website online.

Lots on the line for Samsung with Galaxy S IV

I do not know but my heart says I want to have a Samsung Galaxy S3. At first, I want the IPhone but it's kinda expensive and decided to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 instead. But what's this I saw online, a new Samsung Galaxy S4???? Well, I thinks I'm going for the Galaxy S3.

The success of Samsung Electronics Co's latest Galaxy phone, set to be launched in New York on Thursday, could hinge on a supply backup plan aimed at preventing a repeat of a costly snag for its premium smartphone last year.

Some analysts predict the new Galaxy S IV could top 10 million unit sales in the first month after its launch, so any hiccups in the smooth delivery of core components could be disastrous.

The risks are high. A simple manufacturing snafu involving unsatisfactory design of handset cases cost Samsung some 2 million units of lost sales in just a month after it launched the S III in May last year.

Samsung picked the United States for the launch of its top-selling Galaxy series, hoping to regain its lead in the crucial U.S. market. Apple Inc outsold Samsung there for the first time in the quarter ending in December, even after Samsung spent a record $400 million on phone advertisements there last year.

Ski Shop

How I wish there is snow here in our country but in my relatives place, they have snow. I want to visit their place, not to live there but to have a vacation with my family. I want to try skiing, snowboarding and more. Skiing is a great adventure, you can do it by joining sport or just simply ski. Aside from recreation and competition, skiing has been used for military purposes and even travelling in areas that experience heavy snowfall. Same with snowboarding but the difference is you put your feet together in the board unlike skiing that uses both feet separately. If you are looking for a ski shop for ski and snowboarding products, you can shop a wide selection of these products online because they offer complete equipment and alignment solutions.  If you do not have a budget on purchasing one, you can also rent. You can do online booking for the best deals on the widest selection of ski and snowboarding products.

tea brewer

In my family, some of them loves to drink tea. Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavor that many people enjoy. Tea has been promoted for having a variety of positive health benefits. Green tea may lower blood low-density lipoprotein and total cholesterol levels, though the studies were of short duration and it is not known if these effects result in fewer deaths; moreover, the evidence does not indicate that green tea reduces the risk of coronary artery disease. Several randomized controlled trials suggest green tea can reduce body fat by a small amount for a short time, though it is not certain if the reduction would be meaningful for most people. At present, we are now buying tea powder and brew it.  Well, how do we brew a tea?  You simply just put water to the tea brewer, then put the tea powder and let it boil or heat in couple of minutes and your done. Brewing the perfect cup of tea from loose leaves is simple and straightforward. There is no right or wrong way to make tea. Feel free to experiment and let your palate be the guide.

gps tracker for dogs

Dogs have lived and worked with us in so many roles that they have earned the unique nickname, man's best friend. They have been bred for herding livestock, hunting, rodent control, guarding, helping fishermen with nets, detection dogs, and pulling loads, in addition to their roles as companions. At present, we all need dogs to protect our home and our family too. With today's technology, dog owners can make use of the global positioning system to locate pets wearing a collar fitted with a GPS tracking chip.  There are different breed of dogs and some of them are very expensive. That is why for their owners, they will put gps tracker so that if someone will nab them they are easily to find. If you want your dogs to be safe, browse online for gps tracker for dogs.  In an article I read, there are also disadvantage of the gps system. GPS technology has its limits, as the receiver must be within range of the transmitter to function, receiving its location via radio waves. This distance varies up to about five miles, with some systems having a shorter range of several hundred feet. If your dog escapes out of the range of the receiver, you will not be able to locate him using this device.

Camp Gear

Camping is a great adventure. The first time I joined camping was when I was in elementary during my girl scout days. It was fun because you got to enjoy with your friends and you got to listen to story telling that are sometimes scary.  In camping my camping days, I got to learn cooking using burning woods and put-up your own tent. Camping is an outdoor recreational activity. The participants leave urban areas, their home region, or civilization and enjoy nature while spending one or several nights outdoors, usually at a campsite. Going to a camp, you need to have camping gears. You can browse online for the best camp gear for hiking and camping, featuring backpacks, shoes, tents, sleeping bags, jackets, gps, and many more.  Always remember that before you go camping, see to it that all camp gears must be prepared so that you are good to go and have fun.

neck pillows

Neck pillows support the neck by providing a deep area for the head to rest and a supportive area to keep the neck in alignment with the spine while sleeping. These can also be known as cervical pillows. Neck pillows can also be use inside the car while travelling like in when you are in traffic. When you are leaning back against a seat or a chair, use the neck pillow because it keeps your spine straight and removes stress from the supporting muscles. The biggest benefit of a neck pillow is support. Comfort is also very important. Without a good pillow to cradle your neck and head, falling asleep can be difficult due to not being comfortable. There are different shapes of neck pillows, u-shaped is the one I like.  Shop for durable neck pillows online and you will get great great deals.  Choose from different shapes and different designs that will surely fit your lifestyle.

Granny Goose Kornets

I really love to eat chips. When I was in high school, one of my favorite was Kornets. But years went by, they did not show up in the grocery stands. Like I was happy when I saw it again, and I said OMG!!! Granny Goose Kornets, cheese flavor is my favorite This snack has been in the market for a long time and one of my favorite. The cone shaped chips are crisp and the natural corn flavor is good enough. The package says it was “sealed fresh in foil” and it’s true. The a little sweet buttery taste adds to its flavor and not too salty unlike before. Maybe they have improved their product already. Great for snacks and you will enjoy it.

A sieve, or sifter, is a device for separating wanted elements from unwanted material, typically using a woven screen such as a mesh or net. The word "sift" derives from 'sieve'. In cooking, a sifter is used to separate and break up clumps in dry ingredients such as flour, as well as to aerate and combine them. A strainer is a form of sieve used to separate solids from liquid. Using a sieve when gold panning helps you to reduce the amount of discard material you need to have in your pan and helps leave more of the fine concentrate which are more likely to contain the precious yellow metal. In cooking, we use strainer to strain the solid so that we can mix it to a certain recipe. I love baking and I am always using a sifter for some ingredients like all-purpose flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder.  In, you will find affordable sieves that are durable and will last a long time.  


Halo-halo (from Tagalog word halò, "mix") is a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served in a tall glass or bowl.  Ingredients include boiled kidney beans, garbanzos, sugar palm fruit (kaong), coconut sport (macapuno), and plantains caramelized in sugar, jackfruit (langkâ), gulaman, tapioca, nata de coco, sweet potato (kamote), cheese, pounded crushed young rice (pinipig). In terms of arrangement, most of the ingredients (fruits, beans, and other sweets) are first placed inside the tall glass, followed by the shaved ice. This is then sprinkled with sugar, and topped with either (or a combination of) leche flan, purple yam (ubeng pula), or ice cream. Evaporated milk is poured into the mixture upon serving.

I already ate halo-halo to different places like chowking, so far the halo-halo in a restaurant called Dencia's is much yummier.

drug rehab treatment centers

At present, most countries are now taking illegal drugs. Because of drugs, some kill people or any kind of illegal act that is cause by drugs. If you are taking drugs regularly you are abusing your body. Drug abuse can lead to drug dependence or addiction. People who use drugs for pain relief may become dependent, although this is rare in those who do not have a history of addiction. Some symptoms and behaviors of drug dependence includes confusion, episodes of violence and neglecting to eat. Because of the fast number of people who are addicted to drugs, they are brought to drug rehab treatment centers. In rehab centers, the components of their integrated approach to alcohol and drug rehab includes: detox, individual therapy, and group therapy. In an article I read, there are types of treatment: residential treatment (in-patient), out-patient, local support groups, extended care centers, recovery or sober houses, addiction counselling, mental health, orthomolecular medicine and medical care. Traditional addiction treatment is based primarily on counseling. However, recent discoveries have shown those suffering from addiction often have chemical imbalances that make the recovery process more difficult.
