It's my wife's birthday on Friday but since I will be working on that day, we decided to just go out for an early celebration.

We had a great time together. Andrea was not with us as my Mom and Dan offered to take care of Andrea while we will be out.

We started our date with a hibachi style dinner at Kobe Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. It was a wonderful experience. I have been to a hibachi style dinner but it was Lulu's first experience. It was great. The food was good and the entertainment was also good.

After dinner, we went to check different stores. I know how much Lulu likes to shop so I surprised her with shopping at different stores although she opted to just window shop (mostly).

Lulu and I had a wonderful time! It was really great!

My phone is due for a free upgrade for a couple of months but we kept on ignoring it. When Lulu's phone stopped working we finally took time to visit Verizon wireless center.

Most of the time when our phones are due for new upgrades, I always let Lulu get the new phone and I always end up using her old one. But this time around, we both needed a new one. I got the free phone because I don't use any other features of the phone except call. I don't need a fancy one besides, I will just beat the phone up because of my work. Lulu wanted a cheap phone too but I told her she can get fancy ones or whatever she wants. I even suggested for her to get the blackberry if she wants it. I want her to get a nice phone so I convinced her to get whatever she wants.

I am glad she decided to get the LG Chocolate Touch Phone because I know she likes it. I just wanted something nice for her.

So here's our new phones....
My New Samsung Smooth Camera Phone


Lulu's new LG Chocolate Touch Phone

One of my favorite games in Facebook is Island Paradise. I actually got Lulu hooked to it. It is a fun game as it doesn't require a lot of your time...

Well, since last night the server is down. It is annoying though since it took so look for them to get the server up. It has been more than 12 hours and still the server is down.... geee... I miss my crops, trees, animals and my cooking....lol

I hope it will be up by the time I come home from work!

Acne can affect people of all ages. We may think that acne is most common in teenagers because they are in a stage where their hormones change. This may be true but it is also a fact that even adults have adult acne. Some individuals suffer acne even in the later stage of their life. Some are also lucky that they don't have severe acne in their whole lives.

Acne can really be annoying and disgusting at some point. Some believe that acne is heredity or genetics. Researchers believe that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents. Stress can aggravate acne. There are certain drugs, including androgens, lithium, and barbiturates, are known to cause acne.

With all the stress we deal with everyday, I don't wonder why there is adult acne.
There are times that I just can't sleep. I sometimes blame it to too much caffeine. But some other times, I can't really pinpoint why I can't sleep. There are times that I am tempted to take over the counter sleeping pill but as much as possible I try not to, because I don't want to be dependent on this.

Over the counter sleeping pills are really helpful to some that can't sleep. These are good sleeping aides. As long as you don't rely too much on these sleeping pills I think it is okay to take them. It is always safer not to be dependent on sleeping pills. There are some exercises that can help aid sleep perhaps you might want to do that first. Also, a good hot bath will also make you have a good sleep.
Do you think there is vitamins for hair loss? If there is, I am sure I will have to buy some for my wife. Because my wife has a black hair, you can notice her falling hair in our light-colored carpet. I often teased her that she sheds like a dog. Sometimes, I even wonder how did she ever manage to still have hairs in her head since I really thought that her falling hair is a lot.

My wife assured me that the falling hair she is experiencing is very common. But, I still think that she needs some sort of vitamins for her hair. I have to look at some vitamins for hair loss because I am sure it can help her falling hair problems.
My birthday had an extended celebration. Since I worked on my birthday, I took an off day the following day. I had a long weekend with my family. I enjoyed it very much even though we didn't do a lot. We just had a family bonding.

Friday, we went out to dine at a Mexican restaurant. Lulu has been craving for Mexican food so we dined at a Mexican restaurant near the grocery store where we always shop. Lulu and I were surprised how cheap their food was and the food was really good. For a change, we had a really nice server. We had a couple of bad experiences with servers so it was nice for a change.

Saturday, we spent time with friends and enjoyed Manny Pacquiao's fight eventhough it was a kinda boring fight (for Manny Pacquiao's caliber).

Sunday we had fun playing with all of Andrea's toys and we had a wonderful dinner (yeahhh crab legs... thanks Mom!)

It was really a great birthday... birthday weekend! I can't ask for more as I spent it with my family!

In today's economic recession, there are many companies that has to close some of their local branches. In this situation some workers may have to move to other branches and some are being laid off. This is sad but it is a reality. If in case, your company may send you to work to South California and you need Orange County movers to handle your belongings in moving, always make sure that you will hire one of Orange County moving companies that are licensed and most of all insured. It is better to be safe than sorry and of course you want the people to handle all your important possession to be professionals to ensure the safety of what you have.

I know the feeling of not having a good set of teeth. I advise everyone to take care of their teeth and make your dental health a priority. Visit a South Austin Dentist today and have your teeth examined. Believe me, you don't want to have unattractive teeth.
Today is no ordinary day because I am celebrating my birthday. A special day, yet not so special as we won't have a big celebration. I will still go to work but tomorrow we will celebrate it. I will be off work and spend the day with my family.

I am thankful that I reach another year. I am thankful for my family and for having a wonderful wife who is always supportive, who loves me unconditionally and who will always be my bestfriend. I am thankful that God blessed us with a lovely daughter who is our source of joy. I am grateful for my parents for raising me well.

I may not have all the monetary possession in the world but what I have is more than money can buy. I have a wonderful family, I have two daughters that loves me, and I have great parents. Most of all... I am happy!

Thanks everyone for all your greetings.....

Moving is stressful and I know that. I had my share of packing and the worries of moving when we moved few years ago. The stress of moving seems never ending which starts from finding the perfect place, packing, moving itself and finally settling in a new place.

One of the most worrisome moment when moving is deciding which transport to use in moving that can ensure the safety of your belongings and at the same time offers a price that is affordable.

As the saying goes... "Been there, done that..." believe me if you want a reliable and affordable service in moving try the one way truck rental offered by ABF U-Pack Moving. With U-Pack their service is all in one. You don't need to pay extra for the fuel, driver, insurance and more tax. U-Pack professional drivers will transport your goods with care. So when it comes to moving, choose U-pack over truck rentals!

It is very disturbing as how many strong quakes has hit in different countries for the past couple of months. We still haven't recovered from the shock we got when a powerful quake hit Haiti. It was devastating to see how many casualties and how the country was damaged.

After more than a month or so, a more powerful quake hit Chile. It was so powerful that it titled the earth's axis. Though Chile's earthquake was more powerful the damage was less compared in Haiti because their infrastructure and buildings are made better.

Then after Chile, the earthquake then hit Taiwan. Lives were lost as expected. Then lately another 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey which left 51 dead so far.

There were many small quakes as an after shocks of those powerful ones which I lost count with. All I can say, is the earthquakes make me think... which country or which place is next... This is really fearful!

I am praying for everyone's safety!

For somebody whose vision is not 20/20 it is a strain all day long to do things without the aid of eyeglasses. I understand why most people is forced to just deal with their vision problems because of the high cost of eyeglasses. It is true that the higher cost of the eyeglasses is the main reason why some people will just suffer and not wear eyeglasses.

There is a solution to this problem. It is now possible to get a quality pair of eyeglasses for a low cost. With the help of Zenni Optical, who is selling their prescription eyeglasses for as low as $8 every individual can now afford a pair of eyeglasses. Cheap eyeglasses are a reality as proven by Eric Hammer's review on Zenni Optical. His review is published at examiner.com.

The low cost prices of Zenni Optical's eyeglasses is due to the fact that their products are direct from their factory. They don't use middlemen and high cost advertising that is why there is no overhead cost on their eyeglasses. I fully recommend that you check out www.zennioptical.com and find a pair that suit your needs at an affordable price. Their frames are not designer frames but hey for $8 it is worth checking it out. Save with your eyeglasses - get your prescription eyeglasses at Zenni Optical.

Did you know that sending text messages behind the wheel is deadlier than drinking and driving? A texting driver is 23x more likely to be involved in a crash accident than the one who is not texting. This is according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.

The texting while driving problem is like to get worse because 85% of Americans own cell phones. Research proves that no one is save from the dangers of texting and driving. Texting while driving is not only dangerous - it is against the law in 18 states and Washington, DC.

Just say no to texting while driving to prevent accident.
My niece is getting married soon. The ceremony will be in Florida and we are invited. Actually, they asked us if we will let Andrea be one of the flower girls. Of course! This will be the first time that Andrea will be a flower girl. This will be the first time also that there will be a wedding in our family. We are all excited.

As early as this time, we are gathering wedding gifts idea, something that we can afford to give them. Knowing how much my wife loves to shop, I am sure this will not be very hard for her. We want to give them something that they can use as they start their lives. Any suggestions?

Chewing gum is available in a wide variety of flavors such as mint, wintergreen, cinnamon and various types of fruits. Mintier flavors are often chewed for fresher breath. There is no standard type of gum, as it can be formed in many different shapes and sizes.

The United States military have regularly supplied soldiers with chewing gum since World War I because it helped both to improve the soldiers' concentration and to relieve stress. As of 2005, the U.S. military is sponsoring development of a chewing gum formulation with an antibacterial agent that could replace conventional oral hygiene methods in the battlefield. Recently, the U.S. armed forces have been providing troops with caffeinated gum to keep soldiers alert for extended periods of time without experiencing fatigue or drowsiness. Each stick of gum has approximately 100 mg of caffeine in it, about the same amount in an average cup of coffee.

Did you know that chewing gum is ban in Singapore? Singapore has stuck to its 18-year ban on the import and sale of chewing gum, which has become an international symbol of the city-state's image as a strict society. So, if you chew gum... don't do it in Singapore or you will be in big trouble!
Two years ago, I was diagnosed of having an Ulcerative Colitis. It is a form of inflammatory bowel disease. Ulcerative is a disease of the intestine, specifically the large intestine or colon, that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores, in the colon. The main symptom of active disease is usually constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. When my UC flares up, it is really awful. During these episodes, my hemorrhoids will also flare up. My hemorrhoids is the least of my worries though because I can always self-medicate it. I always have hemorrhoids cream at home because I never know when my UC strikes again.
When you have insomnia, the thought of taking sleeping pills becomes very appealing. The idea of solving the insomnia which will make you sleep right away is very welcoming for sure.

Sleeping pills are most effective as a temporary solution. It is not good for long term cure. There are some underlying side effects when you take sleeping pills. One of the most common side effects is becoming drug dependent and you can become drug tolerant.

If your insomnia worsens, you better check with your doctor. The doctor will know what is best for your condition.
Next week, I will be celebrating my 50th birthday. I am getting old. I always believe that age is just a number but then again I can't deny that age has caught up in me. I can no longer do things the way I used to. I don't have the energy of the youth.

When people aged, their looks change. The skin becomes saggy and wrinkles are showing all over the face. I don't have the looks of the youth anymore. If the best anti wrinkle cream can help in having a younger looking skin, I don't mind using it. Even men can be vain too!
For the past couple of months, we have been renting our movies at the redbox. We found out that there are movies that are not available in redbox. With our bad experience with Blockbuster, we tried to avoid renting there anymore. We decided to go back to Movie Gallery. We used to rent movies there few years ago.

We found good movies at The Movie Gallery that are not in red box. One particular is this movie The Informant. We are so eager to watch Matt Damon in different character.

The movie didn't turn out to be what we expected. It was a little slow and plain at first. All in all it was okay. It was worth watching but I don't think I am gonna buy a copy of this.

Summary from IMDB:
Mark Whitacre has worked for lysine developing company ADM for many years and has even found his way into upper management. But nothing has prepared him for the job he is about to undertake - being a spy for the FBI. Unwillingly pressured into working as an informant against the illegal price-fixing activities of his company, Whitacre gradually adopts the idea that he's a true secret agent. But as his incessant lies keep piling up, his world begins crashing down around him.
When my wife got pregnant, we were excited and nervous. I was nervous because I had bad experience when I lost my first born son years ago. I lost a son few hours after he was born. The pain is still there and I don't want to experience losing a child again.

We were so careful during my wife's pregnancy. We never miss doctor's appointments and we followed doctor's order including taking prenatal multivitamin. I know my wife doesn't forget to take her prenatal vitamins but just the same, I always remind her not to forget taking it.

Despite all precautions, my wife gave birth to a premature baby. I was scared. I can't describe my feelings looking at my daughter in NICU. Everything seems like a blur and it happened very unexpectedly.

My daughter stayed in NICU for almost two months. A hard and painful two months of our lives. Thankfully we surpassed it all. My daughter is very healthy and bouncy now!
My best friend Mike is originally from North Carolina. It is a very beautiful place and there is no reason why anybody wouldn't fell in love with it.

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is a place of spectacular beauty. It is full of history and beautiful ecology. When you are in the sandy barrier islands of Outer Banks it seems like time moves so slow and life is moving slow at the same time, which is really amazing for me. I can't help but imagine moving to North Carolina. I found some Outer banks foreclosures that is not very expensive. If I can find a good job in the area, I am sure that moving there is an option for me and my family.

I have been wearing my eyeglasses since my adult life. I can't read if I don't have my eyeglasses. I can't see clearly without my eyeglasses.

Eyeglasses can be expensive. I can't blame why some people will just settle for a blurry vision because they can't afford to buy a pair of eyeglasses. If only they know about Zenni Optical who offers affordable, high quality and stylish prescription eyeglasses for less, I am sure they will not hesitate to buy one or two.

Thankfully, my work insurance covers a new prescription eyeglasses every year. But despite the insurance coverage, I still have to pay a considerable amount of money for the copay. Anyhow, I am planning to order a pair of eyeglasses at Zenni Optical. My eyeglasses has a progressive lens that is why it is very expensive to buy. With Zenni, it will only cost me $37 or more which is way cheaper than my copay!
Canada bid adieu to the world’s best winter athletes, ending 17 days of thrilling athletic achievements and rousing displays of patriotism with a spectacular ceremony full of pomp and circumstance and a tongue-in-cheek homage to Canadian for the official closing of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

It was a fun olympics. We had so much fun watching it on TV. USA did not get the most number of Gold medals but Team USA got the most number of medals. Below is the list of medal count.....
