I am scouring the net ones again hoping to get more bargains and sales online. I guess every shopper whether it be online or offline always look for deals to save a little extra esp. this holiday season. We as shoppers will not be disappointed bec. may stores really mark down their prices for they know there will be many shoppers that will be buying gifts to give or for their own personal use. One of my great finds today is this tv lifts that you can buy at almost half the price. Check it out!

Black Friday Shopping

Geezzzz, i just envy my friends and relatives who are in the US for they can shop during the Black Friday Shopping. I was browsing the net and you tube today and even saw clips of people rushing up and lining up on stores like best Buy, Macy, Circuit City to get the best deals on items. I vene had the chance to see some items that will be on sale, like the HP notebook which will be only $350+ yay I want that.

So what is really Black Friday Shopping? Accdg. to Wikepedia
Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States, where it is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season. Since Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday may be as early as the 23rd and as late as the 29th of November.

Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many employees take the day off, which increases the number of potential shoppers.

Four Christmases

It's fun to watch movies during Christmas season as it adds up the fun and the jolly mood of people. Here's a new movie Four Christmases from Warner Bros., starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon which will be released today. It is a Romantic Comedy movie which is rated PG-13 for some sexual language and humor. It's been a while since I saw a Christmas themed movie so I think I will be waiting for this one to be shown here. Story:
When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation--and unable to escape--they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened... and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families' choices are not so crazy after all.

Luxury Office Furniture

When it comes to office or even home furniture as the owner we always strive to purchase one of the best for our house or office. Nothing beats a good quality one over a cheap and with poor quality. Have you tried working in an office with chairs and other furniture not employee friendly? Gosh how can you be productive when you have a cracked wooden chair where you have to sit there 9 hrs per day. You gotta be kidding me if you can be comfortable at that one.

What I am saying is that when you own an office and thinking of buying new sets of furniture or even thinking of replacing old ones, keep in mind that quality, comfortability and durability should always comes first. I suggest leather furniture as it never goes out of style and will always give aesthetic look of quality and class. It also adds up sense of professionalism if you put it anywhere in your office and your clients would also be delighted and see a neat and organizes office and they would even be encouraged to deal business with you.

You can find luxury office furniture at Ethan Paul Company, they have myriad of styles where you can choose that suits your taste. Choose among their Office chairs, Reception furniture, book cases, office tables and lots more. Plus jazz up any room as they also provide nice water fountains.

Ten Games to Keep Away from Your Kids.

There's no denying that kids nowadays are really hooked into the computer games that sometimes it can be a hindrance to their schooling which is so bad. My brother is keeping a n eye on his son while playing games and would not tolerate him playing too much violent games which is not appropriate for his age.

Recently, the National Institute on Media and the Family came up with these list
Ten Games to Keep Away from Your Kids bec. it has excessive bloodshed and brutality. We as adults should be responsible enough not to let them play such games

Indian Actor making its way in Hollywood

You know how hard it is for Asian actors to penetrate Hollywood or US limelight but Lavrenti Lopes is making it’s way there as he plays one of the lead star in a Hollywood film SubHysteria which is going to be shown in theaters on April 2009. He also gained his popularity in the South Asian community in the US as well as being a commercial model for many products like Zip Car, Axe Deodorants, Microsoft and a lot more. I am sure if his 1st feature film will be successful more doors will open for him as well as for his other Asian co actors. You can read more about him at his Official Site

So Twilight fans, scream on Wednesday when the movie is finally here.

Read more about Twilight
Story accdg. to the Twilight official website

TWILIGHT is an action-packed, modern-day love story between a teenage girl and a vampire. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother re-marries and sends Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she's ever met. Edward is a vampire, but he doesn't have fangs and his family is unique in that they choose not to drink human blood. Intelligent and witty, Edward sees straight into Bella's soul.

Soon, they are swept up in a passionate, thrilling and unorthodox romance. To Edward, Bella is what he has waited 90 years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will Edward & Bella do when a clan of new vampires - James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi) and Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre) - come to town and threaten to disrupt their way of life?

Testing my new lens

Just got hold of my new 18-200 mm lens the other week but I only got few shots using it since I got not a lot of time to take photos since I am not going anywhere too. I am proud of that purchase along with my 2 Sandisk memory cards, a 1GB and 4 GB. I used it again yesterday with my niece Reign as my model. She was so eager to pose for the cam after I cut off her bangs. She wanted me to take photo of her with her new hair. I still have to use my lens more often so I can get use to it. My hands are kinda wobbly when I zoomed into 200 mm, the good thing is that my new lens has an Image stabilizer feature.

Shopping is Addictive?

I know many women will agree on me on this one bec. we love shopping as all men already know. I guess there are only quite a few woman who doesn't enjoy such. Just go to the malls every weekend and what else can you see? Women shopping with their men in tow lol. Men hate it actually, dunno why. Women tend to go to one store from another to see different shoe styles and all. We'll try to fit it one by one even if we are not buying. Why not?

When we buy something there's a different euphoria that we get out of it but you know what it is addictive. I have know some people who become restless when they don't go to the malls and buy anything even if they don't need it. Good thing is that they have money to splurge on their addictive hobby. Blame it also on the flashy digital signage of stores that are calling us to shop. lol. I reckon we still need to control ourselves from doing that or else we will go broke.

Can't Wait to Shop

November and December are really the busiest and the most, how should I say it, these are the months where I frequent the shopping malls and tiangges. Why not? November is my birthday month (just celebreated my bday last week) where I always reward myself for being "good' and hardworking the year long. Dec. as we all know is the time for gift giving. Anyway, I can't wait to shop again next week at Divisoria for I will buy lotsa gifts and of course goodies for myself. Want to come with me?

Are those weight loss supplement safe?

I am just a little bit worried because believe it or not there many obese people who are really struggling to loose weight. Some who are not too patient just take medicines without proper prescriptions by their doctors. They just overheard it from a friend and with their desire to keep their weight down, they will take it also not heeding the bad effects on them. I recommend reading reviews of such drugs like Fentraphen first or better yet consult your doctor before taking any. In this way, you are safe with some effects like renal disease and elevated blood pressure. If taken wrongly who knows it can also cause your lives. So be aware!

My New Crumpler Camera Bag

It's always fun shopping and I had a great time last Saturday together with my bestfriend Racel when we went at Greenhills. As you all know it's my bday last week and as a gift for myself this year, bought myself a new Canon 18-200mm IS lens that I bought at Henry's. I really have no intentions of buying a camera bag that day but when I saw this crumpler bag, I can't let it go and so I bought it after much thinking and scrutinizing the inside and out of the bag.

I fell in love with this Crumpler bag (most of my co- digiscrappers own this already) when I saw it at the shops. I bought this Dark Brown/Oatmeal/Light Olive color 6 Million Dollar Crumpler Camera Bag and it doesn't look like the old fashioned video/cam bag. I can use it and still look fashionable.

My New Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6

It was my b-day yesterday (Nov. 16) and as a gift for myself I bought this new lens at HENRY's in Hidalgo, Quiapo (where i also bought my camera). I have been really saving for this Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6. I am trying to haggle for the price but my charm didn't work haha, they said that price is like that which I agree. I am still testing this new lens and It's working fine with me.


My bestfriend Cel has been working in her company for many years now and have good work etiquette and just recently found herself too bored to continue working and doing the same thing everyday. She is a working mom and sometimes she feels guilty working overtime and i think she also has neglected herself now. I wish she will have her "me" time already as she deserves it. She already resigned from her work but her boss would not allow her to do so as she is a big asset to the company. I think they are working things out and if her resignation will push through I know she will be so happy with that.

Can anyone really lose weight in a blink of an eye?

I was watching TV last night and saw many commercials about products that can help loose weight. There's even one juice commercial that says it can help burn fats and it made me think.. Huh? With so many products online and offline being promoted, those that seriously need to loose weight are kinda confused which best fat burner is really the best. Pity are those that have weight problems but some are really desperate in finding the best possible solution that can help them slim down. I recommend eating healthy, exercise daily, have healthy lifestyle, consult your doctor and read reviews about products.

Got My New Eyeglasses!

If you could remember my old post about how I hate my eyeglass before, finally I got a new pair of eyeglasses last Sunday. Went at SM near our house after lunch but I really didn't plan of buying or have my eyes checked up that day . Went inside the Ideal Vision in and there are 50% off on all branded quality frames like Giordano, Tommy Hilfiger and more but the frames from Winchester brand suited my small face so I end up buying that. It was a good deal since I got it at half price, (fr. P3,600 to 1,800) and I only added P1,000 for the glass and the consultation is just for FREE since I ordered from them. The eye doctor that examined me was also very nice and listened to all my eye concerns.

All I wanted was an eyeglass that I can only use in front of my pc and just for reading so she had mine customized for that. Right now, I am using it already and I have no complaints so far and it is far more affordable than my old progressive glass that I had last year. I showed it to my niece and I was laughing bec. she said that I looked like a doctor. hahaha.

Can't Wait to Shop

Gosh I am really excited to go to Quaipo tomorrow bec. I am going to shop for my new lens that I have been dreaming and wanting for the long time. I know that it will cost a bit but what the heck I love it and that will be my bday gift for my self. I will be shopping alone and that makes me scared a bit since the place is known for pickpockets and all. I will just be extra careful and I will not wear something flashy so that I will not caught any attention.

Ahhhh one more sleep and i'm off to go shopping and a new lens will be mine. I will share photos once I got hold of it.

Best Webhosting

In this age most of the transactions are already done via online whether it is online banking, shopping and more. People are mostly online 24/7 dealing and it’s a great way for business owners whether big or small to get most of their clients. There are many companies putting up their own websites to reach more clients and to promote their products. It wouldn’t be possible to have a good website w/o a good web host to support you. You don’t want your site to be down all the time as it will kill your business too. People will never have second thoughts of leaving if your site is always down.

Setting up a domain can be daunting but with a good research on your part you’ll on the go. I will recommend a site that offers reviews about web hosting companies for your perusal. This is a good start if you are looking for one bec. you can compare hosting packages, in that way you can choose what is the best for your needs. Just take a look at the list that they have provided at wand you’ll clearly see the each webhosting company’s hosting features , price per hosting and they even rated it by stars. Hosting starts from an affordable $3.95 ,not that bad huh? Go check it out if you are in need of new webhost or if your current one sucks.

Complete Prescription Glasses at $8

My work asks me to be in front of my computer almost 12 hours a day form Mon. till Saturday and with so many years of doing that, my 20/20 vision started to deteriorate as I age and bec. of continuous exposure to eye strain. There are time that my eyes gets itchy , strained and really tired that I already went to my eye doctor to consult it. I was prescribed a progressive lens that costs me a fortune bec. it was expensive. He even prescribes a branded eye drop which I sense that he is already ripping me off. Right now I am no longer using the eyeglasses that I got from him bec. it’s no longer helping my vision.

I am really in need of a brand new prescription and this time I don’t need an expensive one but just the right one for my eye. Been surfing the net for a while and I was directed to Zenni Optical .com where I saw that you can purchase glasses as low as $8 for a brand new one. In these times, where economy is not at its best, deals like this will always help any one that would love to have new eyeglasses. An affordable one need not always look cheap bec. over at Zenni’s they have wide selection of stylish frames that you can choose from. Your taste would always have a counterpart. All of their eyeglasses comes also with UV protection.

Exercise for A Healthy You

How many times have we heard that aside from getting rid of our vices and eating healthy foods, we also need to engage ourselves from doing exercise? I confess, lately I have not been doing my regular exercise in the morning which is playing the badminton. I dunno, since the rainy seasons started I just became lazy which is really too bad. I have a very sedentary lifestyle, sitting in front of my computer the whole day bec. of my work, exercise should keep me going.

I always wanted to get back in my exercise routine in the future as it makes me alive and keep my blood going. Have also considered getting a treadmill if my budget allows it. I should seriously do it bec. my varicose veins are hurting recently due to poor circulation. What about you what is your form of exercise?

Just another Shopping Day

Sorry for not updating this blog so much. Anyway, I had a very tiring Sunday bec. I went out to the mall with 2 of my teenage niece Kath and Kukay. I promised them that I will treat them after Undas so off we go to Robinson's galleria Sunday afternoon around 230 pm. It was so hot that day and I immediately got a headache upon riding the FX taxi. We parted ways when we reached the mall bec. Kukay will have hair cut at Bench Salon. I strolled down the mall but could not found a perfect shoes and blouse for myself so I followed my nieces at the salon. Afterwards, it took us about 10 million years to decide where to eat but finally I decided we're goin to eat at Yellow Cab but oh boy, their pizza is expensive hahaha. It's my 1st time to eat there actually but it tastes good.

We circled the mall again, trying to look for something to buy but end up just buying some toiletries and other stuff. Christmas is really too near bec. of the Christmas decors being sold at the mall now. I's fun to shop but my feet is burning bec. I wore the wrong shoes and with that 2 teens in tow, i could not keep up with their energy anymore hahaha. Yay, that is the sign I am really getting old already.
