Here is a video of how gravely the flood affected Manila. Sad. Let's continue to pray for those who were severely affected.

I was able to view a list of all ALDI branches in our area by doing a local search. At times, I use my GPS, or the local yellowpages to also get a list of local restaurants around. We haven't dined out at Oklahoma Joe's. It's the first time ever. That's where we planned to go yesterday since we have heard much raves about it. Local.com directed us to the one in 119th which was not really far.

Recently, I've been going over my stuff to sort out the ones I wanted to keep, and the ones I would donate or throw away. Every time I would do this, I would always find myself tossing out a bunch of things to the trash can. Either they don't serve any purpose anymore, or just plain ugly.
Speaking of ugly, there is a new exciting contest from LG entitled Lose the Ugly, Find Your Bliss. Anyone interested can upload a photo or video which they consider hideous or undesirable to www.Facebook.com/LGBliss. You can't upload pictures of ugly people or indecent behavior though for these are apparently not allowed. It could also be something you would want to get rid of. An example would be an outdated phone, TV, etc. If you would like to see sample photos of what I'm talking about, better join the LG Bliss Facebook Fan Page and you would see quite a number of them. Entering the contest would entitle you to win the fabulous LG Bliss phone or a gift card worth $50 for second prize. There would be 5 grand prize winners and 50 second prize winners all in all. The LG Bliss phone is so stylish and eye catching, very thin and light. Not the bulky type. It is the kind of phone most people would like to have including myself. It is just the coolest thing! So, hurry! Join the contest now. It ends November 6th of this year.

Aside from the yummy-licious mocha and chocolate cakes from Goldlilocks, my aunt also brought a box of siopaos which she got from the same store. My aunt said they used to be big. I guess because of the recession they decided to downsize those steamed meat buns. :) Siopao is one of my husband's faves. He prefers the asado though from the bola-bola. He finds the latter weird tasting. As for me, I like both varieties. This afternoon I was craving for the bola-bola kind. Both of them have dots on top, only one is red and the other is orange. I forgot and still forgetting ( shame! hehe :)) which one represents asado, or bola-bola. I thought I got it right this time. But I ended up getting the asado instead. I just wish they didn't have to put dots on both kinds, just on the bola-bola kind would suffice, I guess. Still tasted good, so no complaints. :)

We went to Branson, Missouri to visit a cousin who works there. It was a 4 hour drive from here. Yeah! You read that right! :) It wasn't exhausting as I thought it would be. No traffic or whatsoever. It was as smooth as it could be. Gladly the kids were either sleeping or playing with their lola who sat in the middle of them.
My cousin works at the resort where we stayed. He rented a cabin for us. Oh, it was awesome! There's a water fountain in front, and ducks were all over the place. As expected, the kids had a grand time. :)
If you want to join the fun and win great prizes, you can enter their sweepstakes by visiting http://www.getrehabready.com/index.html#link=ssprhbswp. Amazing prizes await the winners such as a trip for 2 to Las Vegas, a year of Hollywood Tans tanning package, etc, a dozen bottles of lotion, etc. Come and party!

What a week it was! Both fun and memorable I should say. My Mom and Aunt finally arrived. They stayed for almost a week. It was short but sweet. :) I wish they stayed longer but that wasn't possible because of their work. For the 6 days they were here, we went to different places such as Branson to visit a cousin. It was 4 hour drive from our place. We could have gone to Myrtle Beach Hotel but there wasn't just enough time. The family is planning though to visit the famous Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotel next year.
Seaside is one of the Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotels that boasts of spectacular views. They have the glorious white beach that is so beautiful to look at. If you're on a budget but still want to have the best vacation ever, look for their Manager's Special Deal. Room rates are lowered for your satisfaction. Enjoy a luxury vacation for a lot less. It's vacation galore!
Enchanted Sailing Charters, Helicopter Tour Package, Honeymoon Package, Spa Package... These are some of the wonderful packages they offer. My husband and I would definitely love the Enchanted Sailing Charters. We like the tranquility that water brings. It's a dream vacation.
Our accountant was supposed to meet with our office manager last Friday to discuss important issues. However, that didn't happen. He called and told us the unfortunate news. A burglar broke into his house! The police were already at his house just waiting for him. Gladly though, he has a home security system installed. It alarmed and authorities got there immediately. As soon as we heard about the news, we called our friend who lives few miles from where he resides. She is on medical leave right now due to an operation she recently had. At first, we were quite hesitant to tell her for she might get paranoid. But we still told her for we couldn't help break the news with her. And I guess she ought to know to be more cautious. Her grandmother lives with her and she has a life alert system installed for her as well.
Brickhouse Life Alert can detect falls remarkably. If your parent or grandparent happens to fall and can't possibly push the emergency button, the device immediately sends an alert for help. It's the true life alert that you can depend on any time. They have experienced and knowledgeable personnel that are fully equipped and trained in protecting your home and loved ones. No question about dependability. They have 24/7 monitoring that whatever happens anytime during the day or night, they would always be there for your safety.
Mesothelioma is a kind of cancer that is caused by being exposed to asbestos. There are two types of it. One is called pleural mesothelioma and the other one is called peritoneal. In relation to mesothelioma prognosis, there are individuals who survived this disease. Paul Kraus is one of them. He was initially told he would only live for a short time. Despite that, he never lost hope. He survived and is enjoying his cancer-free life. He shares how he got out of it with his best-selling book entitled Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers. If you want to know your legal rights, there are also mesothelioma lawyers who could help you with your case.

My 2-year old Noah loves watching Dora and Diego. He learned really well from watching that show. We still have to work on numbers 6-10 though, but it's a pretty good start for him to learn the Spanish language. I won't be surprised if he'd be speaking in Chinese one of these days because he watches Ni Hao Kai Lan also with much fondness. :)
Did he say "engkow! for cinco? ahehe :)"
I have been off from work since Wednesday until today. I do work from home but there are important things that I got to accomplish in the office itself. Our daycare hasn't called yet. I hope her house is ready for tomorrow. Although my co-workers have an idea as to what happened, still I feel bad that I have to miss those days. Last week was the payroll. Each payroll week, I compute for every employee's PTO or paid time off. Along with that, I also do their 401k contribution. I can't possibly do those at home for the paperwork have to stay in the office. Evidently now, those have to take a backseat since I'm still waiting for my daycare's call. What happened was something I don't have control of. At the same time, I feel bad for her because she had to redo most part of her living room and kitchen due to the fire accident. And that's added expenses considering she's also not getting income from daycare because she had to close.
Anyway, in line with 401K, there's a site on gold 401k or 401k gold that provides valuable information to every investor. Question on how to put gold in IRA is clearly explained. If you're planning on doing the gold IRA transfer, Gold Coins Gain is the site to visit. There is a gold IRA form that you can fill out to start with. Even with the tough economy, gold has remained stable. In fact it is considered the most durable asset of all times. How to put gold in my IRA? Check their site and order their free gold guide.
