Oscar Nominations 2011

Hooray for Natalie 'Black Swan' Portman for her Oscar nomination for Best Actress of 2011! I'm betting on her and I hope she wins. I watched her movie, Black Swan, just the other night and indeed she gave her best for the said movie. Mila Kunis and Barbra Hershey were good, too, however, they were both not nominated for the Best Supporting Actress category. Even the short appearance of Winona Ryder was quite noticeable... The film is also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director.

I wish Natalie the best and good luck to other nominees, too. Looking forward for Academy Awards Night and hope my bets wins ;-)

Great Old Times

I'm fond of reading articles especially back issues because I've learned a lot from the people, old places and events of the past. I am even an avid reader of other book magazines that I decided to subscribe yearly. When I happen to browse the internet, I usually check what's the latest news, then the past events to compare with the present. I am just so thankful that there is times digital archive because it helped me a lot in finding the articles that I wanted to see. They have all the events listed and even with the sought-after celebrity before, they have all the recorded documents that I sometimes feel like I was really there. They even have a detailed story about the war and what transpired during those dark moments. And if you want to see the obituary of the rich and the famous that have long been gone, you can see it from the archive. It's really nice to go back to old times because it helped me understand present. It's good to know the previous history because we can learn a lot from them, we can learn from the past mistake and we can get a very good lesson from there, too!

Let's Play Bingo!

When I was a kid, I used to have bingo cards and play with my family and friends for fun. Later, bingo craze was amongst of the many games some people would bet on playing. I've seen a lot of my friends taking their chances of winning cash or some great prizes by just playing this game. Indeed, this kind of game is fun but it needs a lot of wit and one should be fast enough in shouting Bingo! should their number hit it right. However, some spent lots of their money but they were not lucky enough to enough. But some of the winners I knew simply don't quit right away, and that's the technique for winning. And now, here's some good news as I found bingo sites online and this is for Free! In your first play, it's for free but you can also go higher than that by paying a little to get the bigger prize. A lot has been made a millionaire out from this game in just a few minutes playing it. You can also have a chance to choose your own prize and isn't that great?! So, try it now!

Let's Dine!

I had visitors this evening and prior to that, I had been preparing things that might be used by my visitors. Since I invited them to have dinner at my place, I made sure to have my dinnerware set on a table. Funny because I seldom use our sets to think some of these were gifts from our wedding 9 years ago. It's only during occasions or birthdays or gatherings that I remember these items that were not use for a long time. I am just too glad that these gifts were durable and it was still safe and neatly kept on its box. I guess it's really best to keep items that are durable and can be used for a long time as not to have any hassles should there be a gathering or soiree held at home. If you want to own a sturdy cooking set, try to visit this one particular site as they have a lot to offer and they're currently on sale, too! There's a lot of dinnerware, glassware and cookware to choose from at a very low price. Their quality is great that I'm sure you will not regret it when you purchase these items from them. So, what are you waiting for?


I just came from a friend's facebook account and I saw her shoutouts condemning her hubby's mistress. She even posted a picture of the girl who was 20 years older than her hubby. She's a doctor, my friend said, and rich while her husband is poor. I don't really like people who showed their dirty linens at home but I can also understand my friend. She was deranged, depressed and felt like a loser. Her only vengeance is to post the picture of the mistress and share her angst over her shattered marriage. She was losing hope but I tried to console her. I know I was not in the right position but reading her shoutouts made me understand that she needs someone to comfort her, too. She said she had been crying for days now. I wish I could be there physically for her to offer my shoulder but she's a plane away from our place. My only prayer is that her marriage will be fixed and try to renew their vows and commit themselves as parents to their kids.

Fabulous Apartment

My aunt, who is very well traveled, would sometimes share with me her experiences in another country. She's been a lot to different Asian countries, went to the US and Europe. I told her that if I only have money of my own, I hope to go and visit European countries one day to see its enchanting and magnificent beauty.

It would have been nicer to have a grand European vacation with my family, too. My aunt told me that should my plan be pushed thru, she suggested that it's better for us to stay at a holiday apartment especially when we go to London because they offered the best in town. Their amenities are superb and there's a lot of sightseeing during daytime and even at night time. They even provide assistance should we need help or a tour guide. What's great is that they are currently offering a very low price on their Apartments. Well, this is just too good to be true but it's nice to daydream sometimes. Who knows, I might get lucky and this wish of mine will come true.

Megan, Is That You?

When you say the name Megan Fox, what comes to my mind is the actress oozing with sex appeal. She was noticed for her role in Transformer 1 until she was known for being one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, even comparing her with Angelina Jolie. She was a hot chick in Transformer 2 and Jennifer's Body.

However, I've noticed a lot of changes in her. She looked different in Transformer 1 compared to T2. I fear that she's one of those celebrities who is so obsessed with surgery that even though they are already beautiful, they are not contented with the way they look. Her latest appearance was during the Golden Globe Awards and I almost did not recognize her. She looks so matured and I think she's done something to her face again. I hope this addiction of hers will be stopped or she might regret it later. She still look lovely but there is something in her that has changed. She's already beautiful and I hope she knows that by heart. She need not prove anything because she almost has everything! I guess it's really hard to be beautiful, huh?

PDF Library

I am not really a techie and don't know much about computer installation. I only knew the basics and if I want to know about some parts, I usually ask my husband to explain it for me and expound everything. My young daughter is even better as she understands how the computer works and its parts and its purposes. She memorized by heart the functions and the safety precautions of the computer. And all I'm good at is typing and browsing and blogging. One time, I saw my husband busied himself with the computer and he told me his making a PDF library because he's making a project for his work. He told me that it is best for creating, editing and printing acrobat PDF document and good for displaying, too. Honestly, I had a hard time understanding at first but some way, somehow, his being patient with me helped me understand a bit of what he meant. I guess this is really good and useful should you have important document or project to do. If you're like me, let's try to take a look in this particular site and learn for more. It offers free demo trial and they also have product review, the benefits and what else it offers.

I'm A Capricorn

Going back to Zodiac signs, well, apparently, I'm not a Capricorn anymore but a Sagittarian. But I refuse to accept it. Not because I don't like it but it so happen that I grow up knowing and believing I am born a Capricornian on the year of the rabbit. Not that I am a big believer in astrology but so far, the personality of a Capricorn fits my description, although some are just coincidental.

Anyway, here's what I found in one site about horoscope.

Capricorn: Mercury’s clear and defined message to you should be captivating, since you have been lost and found and now you are free to move on to pastures new. If ever you were waiting for a sign it is now, since there is nothing to hold you back from your true wishes, hopes and desires. There is no looking back, and the thrill of a new direction that beckons you to follow your heart and your intuition.

I kind of like it and I hope there's no turning back now with what I plan to do.

Picture Perfect

I took a lot of pictures on my kids and some of them were already developed. However, I was not able to buy new photo albums to secure their pictures. I'm a person who loves to collect and frame the photos but this time, I've not much time to do it. Besides, I want an album that will hold the pictures well, an album that will last for a lifetime and it's quite rare to find it at the mall now. I was looking for a particular album that is sturdy and with good quality. But I've come across on one site and saw beautiful album that is now number one in Europe. It's like a photo book and the result was so amazing. I'll check in our area if this, too, is available but if not, I might try to download and install their free photo book software and do it by myself. I'll make sure I have a good paper to print so that the result will be perfect! Try go to their site and see it. I know you will love what you see!

New Horoscope Dates

What's all these fuzz about new Zodiac signs? Are they changing the dates, like you're not actually a Capricorn or an Aquarius but a Pisces? Duh! I've read somewhere over the net that says "the moon's gravitational pull has slowly moved the Earth in its axis, therefore, what you believe is your sign may not be true at all, making the original Babylonian Zodiac questionable (??).

If you want to know about the new dates, here it is:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11
Pisces: March 11-April 18
Aries: April 18-May 13
Taurus: May 13-June 21
Gemini: June 21-July 20
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20

But know what? In my own opinion, this is crazy. You can't let everybody change the sign overnight. It will take a lot of debates and hey, nobody forces us either so, you don't need to switch signs just because of this hullabaloo that we read on the web ;-)

Perfect Holiday

One of my wishes is that someday, my family and I can experience a boat holiday somewhere in Europe. It would be a great experience for us all, appreciating nature and the places that we will pass by. A friend of mine who is based in Norway kept talking to me about his recent getaway and how he had enjoyed it. He said it was a unique and one of a kind experience. But I know I have to save a lot of money to make this wish of mine come true. And I've to wait for my kids to grow a little older because it's quite hard to let the little ones tag along on a journey like this. If you're interested about this, I recommend you check out this site and look for details. I'm pretty sure that you'll have fun doing this with your family or friends or love ones. This particular site will help you with your bookings and tours and you can even avail big discounts in their other offers. So, why don't you try it now?!

Savor The Moment...

I am so tired today that I badly needed some sleep. But it's impossible to do it with my two kids around, the youngest, still a baby. Sometimes, I wish they'd grow up fast. But many times, I want to savor the moment while they are still this young because I'm sure they are mine and they have no choice but to be with me, hehe. There are just moments that I wanna rest and think no worries at all but since I've a responsibility to take care of, then I must do what I must do, so, out with my rest and relaxation...

Keep Me Warm

In a cold month like the winter season, people wanted to warm themselves up. Right now, I've heard a lot of them complaining about winter storm or a very chilly wind that they need to bundle up and stayed home to stay warm. But even at their own abode, they cannot escape the coldness that a lot of them put a Patio Heater to calm them down. I remember I went to San Francisco before, and even though there's no snow in there during the winter season, the place was still very cold. In fact, SanFo is a cold place all year round and thankfully, they have this patio heater to keep me and company warm and comfortable. It was so difficult to move around without it and I was ever so grateful for my host for having it. If you're interested to get an electric patio heater or outdoor or parasol heater, there's one site that might interest you. They offer quality heaters in affordable prices, too. You can visit their site to learn more about their products. I'm pretty sure this will help you deal with the chilly environment in your place.

Kate Hudson Pregnant

It seems Hollywood pregnancy is In right now. I've just blogged about Natalie Portman got engaged and pregnant by her Black Swan choreographer and now it's Kate Hudson's turn. I've read online that Kate is pregnant by her rocker boyfriend, Matt Belamy - a front man of the British rock band Muse. They said it wasn't planned but they are both excited and embracing it. It was Kate's 2nd child and 1st time for Belamy. It seems Kate is fond of rockstar, huh? Hudson and Belamy were said to be dating for 9 months and now a stork is coming its way. Well, I would like to extend my congratulations to Goldie Hawn for another grandchild. Kids are a blessing after all ;-)

Top Host Company

My sister in law kept telling me to have my other blogs self hosted. It took her a lot of convincing and it took me a lot of time to understand the process of web hosting. Finally, I agreed as long as it is with someone that I could trust. So far, I didn't encounter any problem and I've benefited a lot when I decided to have my blogs self hosted. I got more interested in web hosting that a friend of mine was asking me about it. She got interested when I told her what I get from self hosted blogs and she told me about bluehost reviews that she found online. I went there to read it myself. My friend said it offers everything she needs and it answers her questions right away as this server is accommodating their customers 24/7. And once registered, she can have free and unlimited domains with free setup. A lot of customers are satisfied with their services so there's nothing to worry as this company wants to meet their customer's satisfaction. They even have a promo now! So, if you're interested, I suggest you go to their site and try it!

Moody Tuesday

I am so not in the mood today. I woke up very early today and prepared breakfast. Supposedly, I paid somebody to do this thing for me but she kept coming late. I've 2 kids to take care of and I definitely lack some sleep. I paid someone to do other job at home at a very high price but I was left doing most of the things that she should do. Worst, she came in to say that she will end her work tomorrow. I refused. Who's the boss? Okay, I let her go but I should be the one who will tell her when. Told her she can't leave tomorrow but on a weekend only, or else, she won't receive a penny from us. I'm tired of this situation but it's life. I've never been lucky hiring someone who is willing to stay longer. If I found one, she would get sick or her husband's been abusing her...sigh.. But I'll not stop wishing... I still wish to find someone who will love her work her at home and at least last for a year or 2...

Company Checks

I knew of a relative who is starting up another business. Business runs in her blood and her family thought of letting her took over their company as she's good in it, she knows how to play the game. She thought of expanding their business so right now, she's busy acquiring things needed for her new venture and at the same time, busy supervising the workers. I've heard her say one time that company checks might be of good use on her because it helps fasten up everything and it's also reliable on her part. She thought she might not need a lot of employees to do a certain job because it can be performed by a single or two workers only. Thru this, it helps her data or files keep in order and the one in charge on this job will not be given a problem in organizing her work, too. She said she found one site online that she knew would benefit not only her but her workers as well. If you're interested to know about this, do visit their site and browse their products. I'm sure this will help boost your business, too!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! Wishing each and everyone of us will have a prosperous 2011!!

I am hoping for a brighter future this year, a healthy family, a successful career for my husband and me, a good school performance for my daughter and good health for my baby. Of course, each of us prayed for a bountiful blessing and that's an added bonus on my part. I don't want to dream big as I don't want to expect anything. I will just hope for a good year, leave behind the baggages and look for a great tomorrow.
