Clearance Prices

I was talking to my friend Shawie just a few moments ago. We are both frustrated because of our weights. Before we ended our conversation, we decided to commit ourselves into exercising and making changes with our eating habits. We will keep one another posted about our improvements. We decided to do this because every time we go to our closet, we get so upset because we can’t find an outfit anymore the fit us perfectly. Speaking of clothes, here are some of the outfits that I would like to fit into once I lose some weight.

I am sure my goal is attainable because all I needed is to at least shed 15 pounds. The difficult part though is to tone my abs and muscles. By the way, these clothings are from the website I will print this out as my way of motivating myself. When I achieved my target weight, I will definitely shop with them because they offer Cheap Jeans. As of today, it would only cost you $13.80. What a bargain! Discount Clothes, Teen Clothes with the highest quality is what Heavenly Couture offers, mostly it is priced $17.95 or less. Isn’t that tempting? I know it is! I am sure after reading this post you will be in a hurry to visit their website. :-)

Curious George

Curious George is my son's recent cartoon fave. He took this picture of George while he was watching on t.v. Pretty good timing eh! I thought George here was cute. :) I guess my son said, let me snap a photo coz George looks like mommy, hanging on the computer all the time :D

XFLOWSION, Your 3-in-1 Workout !

Majority of women, including myself, complain about weight gain after having children. After giving birth, I thought I had my weight under control because it went right back to its original numbers. However, after six months or so, I started gaining weight little by little. I tried working out but not religiously. The motivation is just not there.

Recently, I started feeling shortness of breath, which is an indication of weight gain. I badly need to control my snacking habit and start doing an exercise routine. I asked my sister-in-law and friends about their workouts and most of them mentioned XFLOWSION. I learned that it is an effective and efficient three workouts in one convenient program. In other words, it is an innovative TRIPLE TRAINING. It is a combination of martial arts, power yoga, and dance that gives results in 1/3 the time. In addition, celebrity trainer Erik Paskel, who has been shaping up Hollywood celebrities, created PLATEU BLAST that is designed to promote continuous fat burning and muscle toning. This is something that would transform bodies in a very fun and motivating way.

XFLOWSION is available to everyone at The package includes 4 DVD workouts, 2 guidebooks, 2 audio CDs, a 30-day money back guarantee, plus free shipping and handling. What are you waiting for? Let us get XFLOWSION and start changing our lives now!


One Came

I have been yapping about how I have been waiting for my data entry checks in my previous posts, and today, one of 'em finally came! Wew! After almost one month of waiting. I am not sure on what's going on with this company. Rumors said that management has changed etc, but nobody knows for sure. I am just thankful that one came and it made me think that at least they are not shutting down the business. It would have been a great loss for many of us coz legit data entry jobs like them are really hard to come by.

Moving from one house to another in the same city is already a pain in the neck, let alone move to another state or country. Browsing through tons of moving companies is very time consuming. Sometimes it’s frustrating because some of them are inefficient. You want a moving company that would take care of your belongings. I myself had a bad experience with one of the moving companies here in our area.

Anyways, here are a few websites that you can probably use in the future. If you are relocating in another country, you can try Thus, if you would like to ship a vehicle can be of use to you. Furthermore, if you would like to get free quotes from moving companies, try These sites would be a great help to all your moving needs, whether across town or across the globe. Check ‘em out!


I am so used to attending to the needs of my two boys here (hubby and son). Yesterday, I was so surprised with my little boy. This is what happened... I put some food in the microwave, I believe some rice and chicken afritada, set it for 1 minute and left. I actually sat down on my computer to check if there are opps available. Then heard the microwave bell. I did not stand up, I'd like to wait for a little while, but it keeps on beeping. Anyways, after hearing it beeped for, probably 5 times, I heard my little boy opened it... after two minutes or so, he came to me and gave me the plate of food, I was shocked :) then he went downstairs again and came back with a spoon... isn't that sweet?! So I tested him, I said, "could you get me a bottle of water please?" He didn't answer but walked away, after a few seconds, here comes the bottled water. I can't believe that my little boy is getting bigger and bigger, a smarty pants too and one thing is for sure, I'm getting older and older :)

Omega Gold Watch

I have mentioned in my other blog that I’d like to start my gift shopping this year a bit early so the chance of forgetting someone is little to none. My priority this holiday season is my friend in the Philippines whom I forgot to send a greeting card last year. The next in line is my sister who just got married to her Australian boyfriend. I never get the chance to send them a wedding gift so I decided that I’d just buy them one gift as their wedding and Christmas present.

I am not thinking of buying them the typical wedding presents like toasters, microwaves, set of dishes and stuff because they are going to be living from one country after another for a while. So I am planning of buying something that they can take with them conveniently anywhere they go. Say, his and hers Omega watches. I am sure they’ll love it. I remember looking one omega gold watch from the website before so I checked the site again. Surprisingly, their super sale and the watchery giveaway are still going on. I might have to save a little more for the watches that I would like to buy, but hey! I know it’s all gonna be worth it as only sell 100% authentic brand name watches. Can’t wait to shop for that watch!

This is the watch that I want not for anybody but myself :)

Can't Wait

Can't wait for the final episode of the season of Burn Notice tonight on USA Network 9/8 CST. I'll be missing Michael Westen for a while...err guess not coz surely there's gonna be some reruns till their next season, which starts on January. Wow that's really a long time. Monk and Psych had their final episodes too... Men! It's gonna be a rerun galore. Well, I don't get tired of watching them anyways, just like Law & Order. :)

Pianos by Lindeblad

Most kids start showing their interest in music at early stage. My son is no different. When he was two, he started paying attention to all the music that he hears and spent more time playing with his toy piano and guitar. Then when he got a little bit older and saw his uncle playing the piano, he showed more interest in it and loved sitting next to his uncle while he was playing. His daddy bought him an electronic keyboard, and I’m telling you he had a great time using it (wish I could find his pictures playing). However, that keyboard is now a history cause he broke it. His uncle, who now lives in Pennsylvania, is offering us his old baby grand. Thus, my hubby didn’t wanna drive to PA and back just to get it. He said it’s not gonna be practical at this time, first, he can’t absent himself from work, second, the gas price is so high that he’d rather buy his son some of those refurbished Steinways from Lindeblad Piano Restoration. It might not be in a day or two but in the near future. By the way Lindeblad Piano Restoration has been in the business of restoring old world pianos since 1920 and only uses the best materials available in the world and offers a ten year warranty on all parts and labor. Sound like a good deal to me. If you want to find out more visit

Disappointed And Upset

I am a bit disappointed and upset today because I still have not received my check from my data entry job. They used to be very good in sending out checks but lately they are always late. I'm not sure if it has something to do with our deteriorating economy or what. I'm upset because we worked our butts off to earn those and then they won't send it on time. I feel like we are just working for free. It should have been here two Mondays ago. :( Hope it comes tomorrow.

Who Is Hector Kabande ?

Hotel Lucerna is probably one of the best choices to stay when you want to visit Tijuana. However, they also have one in Juares, Hermosillo and Culiacan. These upscale hotels are a family business that was founded by José Encarnación Kabande Dabdub. Now it was passed on to his son named Hector Kabande.

Hector Kabande is currently the president of all the Lucerna Hotels and it doesn’t surprise me to know that he also have a passion in cooking. At present, he is working on a cookbook and one of his favorite and secret ingredients are peppers, hot peppers that is. That is why his friends know that when he cooks, its time to bring out those ice cold drinks!

Burn Notice

One of my fave t.v. shows is airing their final episode of the season on Thursday :( They will be back next January... darn! That means I will be watching the reruns... I guess that's better than nothing.

Anyways, I'm talking about Burn Notice starring Jeffrey Donovan and Gabrielle Anwar (both cuties). Michael Westen (Donovan) is a greatly skilled and a very clever spy who got burned (as per wiki, being burned means identied as unreliable or dangerous agent). As a result, his assets were all frozen and he can't leave Miami and has to resort to doing small investigative jobs while he's trying to find out who burned him. Fiona or FiFi (Anwar), plays as a former IRA and Michael's ex-girlfriend who helps him in his investigations. I'm telling you they look cute together :) Also starring in the show is Bruce Campbell as Sam Axe who plays as a semi-retired intelligence operative, and Sharon Gless plays Madeline Westen, Michael's psychotic mother. :)

Sharon Gless, Bruce Campbell, Jeffrey Donovan & Gabrielle Anwar

Burn Notice is on USA Network every Thursday 8/9CST.

Indiana Flood

We live between the border of Illinois and Indiana. About ten steps, you are in Indiana already. Hammond and Munster that is. I feel bad to see on the news that Indiana were greatly affected by the on and off rain for the past few days. I was complaining earlier about me cleaning up the water that crawled in our basement when I should be thankful coz compared to the houses in Indiana the little water in our basement is nothing. Here's the one that I saw on I think we've used that expressway several times. If I can find videos of the flooded houses, I'd post it again here.

Nice Weather

After raining for a few days, it finally stopped today. I'm starting to like the weather :) It's around 60 degrees, which is not too cold, just comfy. :) I wish everyday is a 60 degree day. :D Anyways, I posted in my other blog that the sensational Charise Pempengco from the Philippines is going to be Oprah's guest on her show. It was aired early today, and I missed it! But... I'm waiting for the replay tonight at 11 CST. :) We'll see how it goes.

Ethocyn And Dr. Chantal Burnison

Have you ever wonder why our skin develops fine lines and wrinkles, as we get older? Yeah not a good thing huh? That is just one sign of us getting a bit older. Also, Our skin starts losing firmness and elasticity. There’s skin dullness, uneven skin tone, blotches, much more visible pores as well. There are a lot of reasons why we develop those signs of aging. According to some articles that I have read, one source is our blood circulation and metabolism slows down, hormones have something to do with it too, plus chemical changes take place in our tissues. How do we deal with it? Most of us use wrinkle-reducing products. However, there are so many available in the market and most of these pharmaceutical companies guarantee great results, thus, it still very confusing on which to use. I guess doctors like Dr. Chantal Burnison and her revolutionary wrinkle-reducing ingredient, Ethocyn can give us enlightenment on the issue. It’s said that only Ethocyn can increase the skin’s elastic fiber content and quality. Sounds pretty interesting isn’t it? Well, being a chemist and a biologist, I am sure she knows what she’s talking about.

Woke Up Early

I went to bed at around 10:30 last night and set the alarm at 2:30 a.m. I wanted to wake up soooo early to check if I got some work. Thankfully I did, so I made a little money :) But when I am getting ready to go back to bed, my little boy woke up and started sneezing...he's nose is all clogged up... then didn't go to bed till 11 in the morning.. Now here I am again, acting like a zombie coz I'm so sleepy.

Bad Day

It wasn't a good day today here in the Chicagoland. It was raining all day. I am supposed to go to the grocery store but I didn't feel like it. I just slept all day :D I admit it wasn't good outside but it feels good to go to sleep when it's raining. It was not as hot as yesterday. Since I slept all day, I am so sure that I will be up all night :)
