Choosing the perfect holiday gift or birthday gift for our loved ones is one of life's greater challenges. How do I know which gifts will thrill my family or friends? What are they like? When we don't know what to buy especially that someone has everything it can be a nerve-wracking. I always having trouble on finding the perfect gift for my loved ones. I spend hours or even days searching the Internet to find a perfect one. So far I found a rc booster for my husband's musician best friend, and I still have to do more research for the rest on my gift list.

We have no intention to go here in the beginning, since we spotted this area when we drive on our way to Maligne Lake we couldn't help ourselves but to stop here. The majestic mountain covered with snow is just caught our attention. Ahhh... what a beautiful sight!

All clues that the end of another year is upon us and that the holiday season has arrived in full force. Well, another Thanksgiving has just gone, but Holiday sales everywhere is still going on. I already started buying gifts for my family, in fact yesterday I scored a very nice baby taylor guitars for sale my niece (who loves to play music instrument) would love to own. Hope you guys have fun shopping!
This lake is very close to Jasper town where my family and I stays for a couple of days. Drove up here one late afternoon the road has beautiful views. It is a fantastic place to visit for the scenery and beauty. Great for photo ops! Autumn weather was very pleasant, we get to breath the crisp-clean-mountain air, and that is very relaxing!

The kitchen is typically the most used room in the house, it's extremely important to ensure that it's organized and functional for all the action that it receives! Organizing your kitchen means less frustrating meal preparations and a quicker clean-up. Trade out fixed cabinet shelves for ones that effortlessly slide out. With sliding shelves, you can see items at the back of the shelf as easily as dry goods at the front. You can find the largest selection of pull out shelves at a very reasonable price at ovisonline.com. Enjoy shopping!

U.S. driver's licenses are valid in Canada. It is so easy to drive in Canada, similar to driving in the U.S. with a few differences: Distances and speeds are posted in metric units (kilometers), the maximum speed limit in Canada is 50km per hour in cities, 80km per hour on highways, and 100 km/ per hour on rural highways. There are no toll booths in Canada, however there is one I saw in town of Jasper. I believe they ask for the park fees. I think. Not sure though.
There are certain highways especially in the small towns in Alberta have cameras that take a photo of your license plate if you drive over the maximum speed. Other than that, driving in Canada is smooth as the wind.
The scenery of the mountain and the prairie is pretty awesome!

Husband and I was in Edmonton, Alberta last September till mid of October to visit my sister and her family, and my mother. My original plan is to go in summertime, however, due to some circumstances we can't control our initial plan was push in autumn. That really doesn't bothered me at all because I love autumn season. It is my favorite season of the year.
We have plan to go to Jasper town a 3 1/2 hour drive from east of Edmonton (the capital city of Alberta province) where my sister live for a side trip.
When in Jasper, you'll find yourself awe-struck by the wonderful, formidable nature. I have so many photos and stories to share here. For now, let me show you one of Jasper alpine we've been to. We literally on top of the snowy mountains. It is gorgeous. Yes, it is also freezing.
I wear a thermal top underneath a thermal jacket, and wear a foot warmer , still my body get freeze because I did not wear any gloves (which I left in the car!). That doesn't mean I did not enjoy this experience, in fact, I totally love it. Nearby, there is a communal cabin where the restaurant and tramway station located for us to get warm. So that helps me ease the coldness.
