I am a plumber

I miss going to the nearby mall at our old place. Well, malls are so far from where we live in right now. All our life we have been near that air-conditioned building. We go there even if we do not have to shop or do our groceries. You know, it is very hot here in our country especially during the summer months. There is only one department in the mall that I usually stay. Where else but at the hardware store! I will be going there by next week.My wife is asking me to look for high quality but affordable kitchen faucets. Ours need some replacement. Now, I am a plumber!

Buy me a strawberry ice cream!

I could not help but laugh about my wife. Ha,ha,ha! I mentioned that she lost 8 lbs. Now I think she would gain double! Well, she is a hearty eater. I could still see the control but maybe she is having some hormonal changes right now. Well, just a while ago, she wants me to buy strawberry ice cream!

She lost eight pounds

My wife is done with the first bout of her three day diet plan. Yes, she lost eight pounds! Not bad at all, huh! Well, she is inspired by this development and she can’t wait to start another session again. As I studied her diet, those are composed mostly of filling or heavy foods yet with fewer calories like peanut butter, egg, whet bread, banana and apple. According to my calculations, her daily intake is less than 1000 calories per day. What is the catch? Well, lunch is the hardest thing to do or to follow because it has the least food. On the third day, lunch should only be one boiled egg and 6 saltine crackers. She was about to give up but I told her that she can do it. Today, it is the fourth day so she is allowed to eat almost everything. She though of pigging out but then again, her tummy seems already used to low food intake.

Single Dad

My brother is getting impatient these days because of his skin break outs. He needs an acne treatment badly. I don’t know but I think he is having this skin problem because of stress and lack of sleep. He works in a department store. Their team is in charge of the electrical safety and maintenance. Usually, he takes the night shift. Oh, I have not mentioned this but my little brother is a single father of two boys. He wants to spend his day time with his kids. In spite of his busy schedule, he still stays on top when it comes to his children.

Give back

Christmas is about giving. It is the time that everybody always has to give. No exemptions whether you are poor or rich.

I have a relative who is very generous. She lives in Japan and every time that she goes to visit us here, she always has gifts for everyone. I just thought that sometimes, she does not get anything in return.

She will be coming here again on Thursday. It is time to give back to her. Maybe I would make her favorite fruit salad. Yes, it is me to cook again. The wife is not a kitchen person.

Manic Monday- Harvest


Manic Monday is one of the first memes that I joined. Oh, it has been so long since my last entry. To think that it gave me a harvest of friends from all around the blogosphere.
I would say that thru Mo’s post about Entrecard that I joined in also. It was very informative and that gave a clear picture of what Entrecard is. Again, harvest of visitors dropping by.

In time for thanksgiving, thus the harvest theme?
I hope that there would be a national holiday here like that too.
Anyways, we have that in our province every May 15th when the farmers thank th patron saint San Isidro Labrador for a good harvest.

To win your case

My sister-in-law was caught in a sort of vehicular accident September last year. It was actually at her workplace. She is working for a steel company and is sort of the one handling the deliveries. It means that she is in charge of the loading and unloading of those steel! It was unfortunate that the truck moved backwards and some of the loads landed on her poor left foot. It was real heavy cutting all her metatarsals into half. Her left toe was crushed. She did not press personal injury claims though. She said that her employer is very kind. Well, she was homebound for six months with salary. I am sure though that she could get a higher amount if she pursued a case. After all, according to her, the truck is insured.


What if that accident happened at the roads? In everyday news, there is always a featured accident and lately, there is an increase. Just recently, I was able to watch in the news about a car hit by a bus! The passengers of the car lost their lives. If ever they lived, there is a possibility that they would sustain some head injuries. What could claims like whiplash injury claims do in that case? I hope that everyone should be careful in driving.


Moreover, to pursue a case is very difficult. Hiring a lawyer means money. That is why, others just let it be. Whatever is offered to compensate any loss is being accepted.


Do you know that there are lawyers that would only charge you if you win the case? That is very practical, right? You could be sure that they would do all their best to give justice to what happened to you and you get what is due to you. It is a fair idea! You could find them at firstpersonalinjury.co.uk. They also handle Bicycle accident claims and other cases.

Diet support


I am supporting my wife on her quest to lose weight. She went home yesterday pretty excited holding a piece of paper. She is going to try the three day diet! Look at the plate! It is full of carrots and green beans. For the first day, that should be the dinner. She did not eat rice, huh! Yeah, I would like her to lose some weight. I am very much willing to cook those vegetables if it would mean a slimmer her! I am supporting her diet all the way! I am proud to say that I was the one who prepared that meal.

Do not touch my ties, please!

I have a collection of silk ties. These are in different designs. Some were gifts from my co-workers and most of those I bought from sale. Others are branded, others are not but I love them all just the same. I actually have almost a hundred and my wife would like to put some in a garage sale! Well, it is the in thing nowadays to sell your old things instead of keeping them all in your cabinets. She heard it from one of her friends who was able to sell all of their old office uniforms. Now, my ties are in danger of extinction! Do not touch my ties, please!

It should be a way of life

Weight is not an issue between me and my wife though I must admit that I would like her to loose some pounds. I am more concerned about her health of course. That is why I would like to help her. She might opt to take a diet pill like Fentraphen or the harder way through exercise and diet. I guess though that it is really a way of life. I could say that I am not that physically fit myself. We have to review what is inside the fridge and maybe really take it seriously putting more physical activity in our schedules.

What I love about Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner. As I go outside, I could feel the morning mist as it touches my skin. The cold air shivers me in a nice way. Oh, these things bring about good old memories and lead my mind to creating new ones.

What I love about Christmas is seeing happy children faces. Those little carolers are a joyous sight. Their angelic voices linger in the air singing with the leaves of the trees and the humming of the soft night wind.

Christmas is indeed for children. We are all a kid in our hearts during that day!

What are diet pills for?


This is one of our favorite native delicacies. It is made up of gelatinous rice wrapped in a banana leaf then steamed. The sauce is special and is made up of coconut milk boiled with brown sugar until it reached a certain consistency. My brother brought us some of this last All Saint’s Day. It has sort of become a tradition for us to have this in our homes during that time. Our mother taught us how to make the sweet sauce. I love having this yummy combination as breakfast, snack or dessert. Never mind the millions of calories that you would get after eating it. What are diet pills for? Lol!

Book early

If I will be given the chance to travel to US, I definitely won’t miss a vegas trip! One of our friends who lives in Canada had just been there and showed to us some of their family pictures during their vacation to Las Vegas. I would like to experience night life in that city. They did not find a hard time looking for a Hotel to stay in because they booked early. I think that it is very important no matter where you are going.

What is with our internet connection this time?

Our internet connection is acting up once again. A few days ago, it totally went out at around 11PM. We just did not mind it because we chose to just sleep. Ion the next morning, it had an IP address again that meant that we really would not be able to connect. My wife called the customer service and after five minutes, the connection went okay. Today, it is very slow. We could not even check the speed at testmy.net. It is like dial up! I am asking my wife to call again but she said that it might be the weather. So, be it!

It is raining once again

It is raining once again. Another change of weather? Oh, the cold season is here. I hope that the rain would disappear though. I do not like wet and muddy roads. I hate bringing umbrellas also. Well, generally, men do not like to. I am just worried right now because my son caught colds again. If that would develop to cough, there will be some asthma attacks again. We do not like that.

Talking about rain... I apologize for the rain of the previous posts. I am thankful for those extra work, you know earning money from blogging. I had to do it. I know you understand.

Get higher payouts

Are you husbands or boyfriends or wives or girlfriends or anyone close to you for that matter that have been staying out of the house, sometimes for days playing casino? You could stop worrying now by introducing them to Online Casino. You do not have to scold them every time anymore. You could just suggest for them to try doing it online. It would benefit both of you.

One of the things that someone who has been playing casino will ask is the feel of the game. What they might want is something close to the real casino. In that case, you have to choose a site, which has good graphics and good sound. I was able to pass by one establishment, which is actually offers online casino. Even the place was fully dressed with red lights and casino design. At muchocasino.com, they make sure that their gaming software is the best. You would like to choose from many games that you see in a real casino? It is there! You could play over one hundred games. More importantly, it is safe as it is approved by gaming commission. Be sure to see that sign of trust before making any deposit. How about the payouts? Aside from being able to cut gasoline expenses to go to a real casino, you could get higher payouts online.

Onling Bingo

Almost all of the malls here in our place have a Bingo place. I could still remember a few years back that one popular mall chain has its branches playing at the same time. The jackpot gets bigger during grand Bingo games. To win in Bingo, it starts with choosing the right card. Usually, there number combinations already that are predicted to always come out first. After that, you have to be keen in highlighting or marking the called number. You should also know the accepted frames to win. Players usually agree on what frames are accepted. There are big square, small square, big diamond, small diamond, large triangle and small triangle. I only name the frames based on my observation. During Bingo socials, not all of these frames are accepted. In events like these, usually, all the numbers on the card should be called before one wins. It gets more exciting whenever one or two are only waiting for a number to be called before they could shout the magic word. Bingo!

This game is also becoming an online thing. Yes, you could already play Online Bingo! You could now play not only with mall goers but also with the rest of the world twenty-four hours a day! If you would like to know where to go to, Onlinebingosites.net could help you find your way towards Bingo fun and lots of winning. It has information on the best Bingo online rooms. Choose the one that gives bigger bonus.

You must be a very good actor

I am preparing for my poker game with my wife this weekend. She is already an expert so I must not be caught off guard! The price is so high so I should win! I hope that she did not research for some strategies at Online Poker rooms. Oh, well, I must not take away that possibility. I know how clever she is. Maybe I should be getting the edge. She is sleeping right now and I am here searching for poker. I found onlinepoker-rooms.org. This site is all about poker. There are even news about the game wherein you could get some advice and new tricks perhaps. I learned that the main thing about poker is your skill in bluffing. You should be a good actor, huh! I must learn that craft. My wife is a very good actress too. You know, women. I should really stay on this site and read the rules of the games by heart. Maybe, I should just ask her to play other variations of poker like Omaha Hi, Texas Hold’em and Seven Card Stud. I just have to study them. I am sure that she does not know it yet. Onlinepoker-rooms.org is really a great help whether you are a newbie or already a master of this game.

It is only one day and it is game time! I hope to win!

A friendly advice

As we were having our usual siesta during lunch in the office, my buddy was asking me for some Casino Advice. I asked him what made him think that I am into casino. He said that he was able to read some of my blog entries. Well, I have not written that I have been into a casino lately, have I? Anyways, there was once a time that we were given passes but we did not take that bite. Now, he is very interested. He heard about one of our officemates who actually won in a slot machine. Moreover, besides the winning, you could also meet a lot of people there. My friend is still single so who knows if he could find the one he is looking and waiting for so long there? Well, why go to a real casino? He would have to prepare for a get up and it might be expensive because he has to purchase some drinks among things. I advised him to try it online first. Moreover, for some casino advice, then he should just go to internetcasinoadvice.com. He would see there the recommended casinos where he could win some real money. About meeting others, I am sure that there is a number waiting for him there.

Go for the best!

Now, let us talk about slot machines. That is one of the most popular games in the Casino, right? I could still remember that there were home versions of that in some of the local stores. I just forgot what it was called. Anyways, I was able to try playing a couple of times and what gave me joy were those coins (so many of them) that were coming out of the machine! It meant that I was winning! After a big win, I would tell the store owner that I had to go.LOL! Yes, you should always know when to stop right? However, it was really fun. That was one of the memories of my youth.

Do you know the Best Casino where to play online slots? You could check out Best Buy Slots! From the name itself, it seems that it offers some promises. Actually, it is a site where you could select the best casino where to play online slots. You know the very main reason why you are playing…the pay out! Yes, not all casinos have the same pay out so from there you could verify which one could give you more money! Moreover, when you are going to play online, you would like to at least have the same feel when you play on real casino places. From the casino reviews, you could also learn there about the possible experience that you would have in a particular casino as to the sounds and graphics. I think that it is a critical factor for any online site for that matter.

Now, I am hearing those slot machines in my head! Win, win, and win!

I'm afraid!

Is it too late for a Halloween post? It is November 5 and I guess, 6 days late is okay? Well, I could have posted it for WW or Weekend Snapshot but I did not have the luxury of time the past days.Busy.busy...

Anyways, this picture was taken during the HP that we attended. You see the mask that my son was wearing? He asked us to buy that two months ago. Well, he saw that from one of our neighbors who was playing around with every people that would pass their house. He would come out to surprise every passerby and would wave his hand.

Here it is...my son tried to imitate our neighbor and would like us to become afraid. Okay, son...I'm afraid!!!!

Have fun in winning

On my way to finding ways how to improve my poker skills, I was able to browse through so many Casinos Online. Pretty convincing for you to try to play. Again, just be very careful in choosing the best site. Remember, the fun is in the winning.

My late father-in-law was into gambling before. When I was still wooing my beautiful wife, I did not see much of him because he was always out of their house. He stayed in Casinos late nights and sometimes it can turn into a couple of days. I understand that wives and children would not like to experience that. Imagine the time lost of possible precious moments with your family. I think that is why online casinos were invented. If only for that, then I would like to applaud these casino sites.

If you are into this kind of game or would like to try, better be educated first. GambleCraft.com has tutorials that would guide you on these roads. Honestly, I think that card games are a mind game. You should also be good in Math. The site is also loaded with information about the best online casinos. You could read there some reviews and you could go from there.

As young as the President

America and the rest of the world are rejoicing over the victory of Obama. Congratulations to the newly elected President of the United States.

I like the line of one of the local news reporters about how Obama got the seat. She said that the man not only campaigned to win but also started a “cause”.

I had not really followed the campaign period but was able to read some of the press releases. Obama has a nice slogan- Yes We Can! Indeed, he was able to do it.

Speaking of McCain, I saw that he is full of wisdom. Maybe he would have been a very good President too. If individual votes were counted, he was close… Maybe it is not yet his destiny.

My wife went out of the room last night and came to me and said,” Hey, Hunnn, you are as young as Obama. You could be President too!”Ha, ha, ha! That made me laugh. I am just a poor boy! Now, you know my age…

Be guided

My wife is always bragging about her Poker skills. She said that she always wins over her Boss. Well, maybe he was being kind to her then? Yes, it was her Boss who taught her to play Poker. Maybe I should learn secretly so that I will be able to beat her on time big time. Then I will ask for a very high price! Lol!

I never really been into any form of gambling but I guess, it is always good to know. Going to a casino maybe a form of socialization now and of course, gambling a sensible amount and making sure you win is okay. So, where should I go from here? Well, thanks to the vast world of internet and blogosphere. I found this Online Casino Guide for newbies like me. Finally, I would get to play some card and somehow hone my skills.

The site is very easy to navigate. Everything you need could be seen at its menu tab. It has online casino reviews and provides tips and tricks about some casino games. There are other games discussed there also like Bingo! This is another popular game for all. I could still remember those days that we play Bingo when we were still kids. Now, our Aunt even goes to the malls for some Big Bingo games.

For those who are interested to play online for fun or money, this might be the site for you.

Gifts for kids

After Trick or Treat, what comes next? It would be Christmas once again! Another special day for children. Before that would be my son’s birthday on December 11. Well, he already has something on mind. He just wants to go a park where there are lots of fishes. Pretty, cheap, huh! That would mean a special gift for him this Christmas. I saw these kids wagons and they look good. He would love to have that! I wonder if he would forget about the pedal train in the picture. Oh, he might want both!

Car allowance

Everybody would like to become a manager because of the Car allowance. It is one of the benefits when somebody becomes a manager! He or she would have a new car and gas allowance! How cool is that! I wonder what kind of vehicle reimbursement program our company has. For new managers meaning, junior managers, they are given only a certain amount for them to purchase a vehicle of their choice. A fixed amount is also given for gas allowance but they have to present gas receipts to get that. Meaning, they only get what they have used and properly supported by official receipts. It does not matter whether they use it personally or for business purposes.

If I would be given the chance to handle the finances of our company, I would look into this aspect. I am sure that our company is spending much for transportation. There are service vans, service cars, service buses and those that are being hired on a contractual basis. That is besides those that were provided sort of personal vehicles. I was able to stumble upon this site, crsinc.com that provides Corporate reimbursement services. Their services are attractive because it is fair and accurate. It benefits both the employer and the employee.

Get it at Zenni


Before you buy something, you consider other people’s opinions on the product first, right? Of course, you would like it to be popular and of high quality at the same time. Its price tag also matters if not the first priority. Moreover, you are very meticulous if you are going to use it everyday or the thing you would buy is for your health. Example is eyeglasses. There are
Great Eyeglasses For Less that you could buy online! Check out Variable Dimension Frames From Zenni. You could see its site or visit the Fox news web. Yes, Zenni Optical was on FOX news! Its products might really be saying something for Fox to take notice of them. If I were you, I will head on at Zenni on Fox and see for yourselves! The holidays are coming and eyeglasses are great gift suggestions.

What I have been busy with lately

I have not been around lately, have you noticed? Well, I was busy with our bathroom project. It is semestral break also and I likewise took a leave from the office. I worked here at home as the plumber and the carpenter. Yes, I am almost finished with the bathroom floor. We had replaced the toilet bowl also. The shower room is still as bare as it is though. I got no time already. The tip of my fingers are cracked and so painful. Maybe in the coming days, I will be able to finally finish it also. Anyways, my wife is easy to please and she does not demand much. Actually, she does not want to spend more...LOL! Yeah, we sort of exceeded the allowed budget for it.

Next week is examination week also for my son. That would mean another busy week for all of us. Well, it was all vacation until today for him. Reviewing will start tomorrow. Right now, he is watching Casper, the Friendly Ghost at Cartoon Network.

Oh, by the way, it is time here in our country to remember our departed loved ones. We have not yet visited them at the cemetery though because it is raining here.

Hey, I changed my template again... well...I thought of going for blue this time.

More posts to come within the day.

Take care, everyone!
