Kristen Stewart's Quotes

"I'm about to play an emaciated pregnant vampire, so I've stopped using as much butter as Paula Deen – just until Breaking Dawn is over."


What a coincidence that these two celebrities are my favorite people in the show business world. I swear I love to try making Paula Deen's fried chicken. My colleagues and I sometimes talk about to go to Savannah, Georgia just to dine in at Paula Deen's restaurant to have her fried chicken. Lol. And Kristen Stewart being Bella of Twilight Saga movies is the bomb! I can't wait to see Breaking Dawn possibly next year.


Outer Banks Properties for Sale

If only I have so many extra money right now I will definitely invest that money to buy a house property. Because of the bad economy's going on nowadays obviously the housing business is also down, and this is the right time to buy a house in cash for future investment. To think our 20grand can go already buy a house. Everywhere in the United States has house for sale. If you would like to buy a rest house in one of Outer Banks place then go search their Nags Head foreclosures as they have plenty of great houses and prices to choose to fits your budget. There's nothing wrong to be curious so go ahead and search for it. Have fun!


For some reasons I don't know about last Friday early morning when I step out from the door to walk my dog outside was smell so badly like sulfur, fertilizer, or a bad canal. Okay, the only thing I can describe it best is fart. It smells just like that. Hehehe So, when I arrived at my work the smells are still there, and everybody noticing it (of course!). It happened again yesterday morning. Until now I don't know what the cause is. We don't have farm here, we only have swamp. Maybe that what it is something from the swamp. I don't know. Well, the fact is the smell is terrible that cause our nose and throat or even lungs a bad feeling. Mostly people couldn't breath well cause they refused to smell it. I had a bad headache yesterday. I don't really like such bad smell. I in fact hates smoke of cigarettes but with the smell like this one makes me sick. How much more those people who have malignant Mesothelioma disease because of what they inhaled from hazardous asbestos. That is scary. Well, I know for sure I am far from that situation but still I have a problem with bad smell surroundings.

Vogue Diaries: Anne Hathaway

I like Anne. She has a big smile on her face. Although I don't like her pale skin but she's still beautiful on it.

Then this is her latest cover shoot for November 2010 issue.

Fraternity flag football

Guest post written by Zack Williams

I'm always striving to prove those people wrong that think that frat brothers just drink and act like idiots all the time. So when I joined a frat, I found one that I could really relate to the brothers in and I really did luck out. My brothers are great and so are the alumni that I've met. But I came up with a great idea when I was elected vice president of starting an annual charity with all the other fraternities at our school that was different from the regular old block party or marathons that usually serve as the fundraisers for charities in Greek communities.

I got to work planning the flag football fundraiser and started out by contacting people at the other fraternities. After I did that I found this offer on wireless internet that seemed like it could help our fraternity cut costs so I got some more info on it and plan on presenting it to our members who deal with that kind of stuff.

Luckily, intramural flag football is really popular at our school so it was no problem getting interested people to sign up fro the tournament.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader- Trailer

I don't know about you but for me Aslan is the great animal character in any movies. Maybe because Aslan is so mature which is the most character I like in a man. Meanwhile, I can't wait to watch Narnia- The Voyage of the Dawn in the big screen this coming December.

Commercial Satellite Packages

A home without entertainment appliances is not fun at all. Nowadays, each in every house has at least one TV with of course a cable or satellite connection. Much more when a restaurant where we hangout to dine, talk, and laugh about our favorite ball games, or, showbiz gossips don't have commercial satellite tv? That would be uncool! Who would not like to sit in the restaurant watching our favorite baseball game while having our favorite dinner at the same time? Everybody.

Cable or satellite television plays an important role for all of us. We want to have a lot of technology in and out home, everywhere, and why not, we must love to keep in touch with what happened in the world. That's why I'd love to go in a restaurant with direct sat commercial direct tv to keep me update even if I'm not at home. Have you notice mostly establishments now have satellite television? That's right because they know the trend. Dish business is no longer "in", just because...

So for those restaurant's owners don't have any commercial satellite tv connection it is about time to consider an option to setting up television to entertain your valuable customers.

Rolling With the Punches

Guest post written by Nancy Goldman

Reinventing myself at 59 wasn't ever what I expected to do but I've got to say, it may be one of the best things that's ever happened to me. Rewind, here's the story: For a lifetime I had been a teacher and had worked with children. I helped improve my school's state testing scores for the fifth grade level, and I feel I really left my mark on a lot of children.

But after a while, I started craving something new. The teaching jobs were drying up in my area, and I felt like it was just time to move on. So I did all the way to New York City, where I decided to break into the world of creative advertising. I think the reason it was such a good fit (and an easy transition) was because they are both pretty creative, you know? Teaching children to read requires a good deal of thinking outside the box, which has served me well here. Since my change, I've actually been revamping a lot about my life, goo. I got contacts and recently purchased a pair of hearing aids from Sometimes you just got to roll with the punches!

Happiness is...

when Puddy knows when I snap a photo of him. He loves camera. And i love taking picture of him. love you Puddy!

Auto Insurance

Before you get a car insurance or home insurance for yourself and family you have to consider the consumer reviews, and check out the financial strength ratings for an insurance company through searching the net. Begin with the online services. If you go to carinsurance dot com or other online insurance sites, you can check in their top car insurance reviews over there for all the information you needed before you decide which car insurance is best for you.

Happiness is

when chasing Stormy.. she hates when I hide and couldn't find me. hehe love her!

Cheap Insurance Quotes

Having a valuable possessions like cars, a home, computers, and your own life needs protection, and security from accidents and natural disasters. That is why there are many different insurance companies that have their different services and policies to offer. Come to think of it, if you compare car insurance quotes to a bottle of alcohol, you can see which has the greater value, and which would benefit you more.
Getting home insurance and car insurance are the best way to protect our investments. Nowadays making claims and viewing and comparing policies is easy and quick before everything in online.

Fall Festive at the Office

Today in the office we celebrate Fall festival. Mostly the AIS department and some other departments decorates their cubes with fake fall leaves, pumpkins, and lights. It was so beautiful to look at, orange colors are everywhere in our office today. We in our department are so square, we hates decoration! (booooo) haha
But in all fairness we bought pies and brownies for our potluck share. Yes, we have potluck in the office today, we have a long table of sugary foods. I didn't dare to stare at them all. Tempting! I afraid of high sugar though I heart sugar. hehe Doesn't make sense, eh? I only eat the apple pie and coconut tablet my colleague made for us these are already enough for me. 

 Why we celebrate Fall festival? I think is to have a camaraderie for all employees, I guess. Or, just for fun.

Skyscraper Aerial Video

Watching this video makes me wanna go to NYC right now. I so wanna go over there. When will it happen? I don't know. For now, I am content just watching videos or looking at photos anything from NY. Who ever person makes this aerial videography from skycamusa dot com really did a very good job. It is beautiful.

Check their website for more great videos and photos sample, and information.

Meanwhile, enjoy this another cool video of beautiful country in PA.

IRA Accounts

The other day I received my first statement for my IRA Accounts through the company I work with now. I notice the market value is rising up. I got a very good interest added on my invested money, how wonderful! Glad to have an employer who give benefits such like this one (retirement funds) which is a huge help for my future. I get paid and at the same time I save money. This is what I really wanted ever since is to have a retirement funds. 

As much as I love to stay with my employer until I retire but I know life is a constant change. Although this happened on other people which I wish for myself the same thing but if (only if, what if) something bad happen of my employer's future I will definitely do trade my IRA. I will not gonna withdraw it and spend for nonsense I will do Stock Trading to the stock brokerage I know. I can also do Online Trading through Internet. Nowadays a lot of things we can do through online. So easy.

What's For Dinner

Ever since I found Fresh Market I am now frequent to buy some food over there. Once a week to be exact. I like their Seafood Antipasto.  It's so yummy! This serve as an appetizer really good.

And I like to buy of course my also favorite fresh chicken breast for baking at home. All I did is season with salt and ground pepper, add smash garlics, rosemary, and drizzle with EVOO.  Bake in 345 degrees for about 45minutes.

Christmas Decors

Grandma asked me the other day when I put up our Christmas tree. I posed for a while thinking of the Halloween because everybody is into that occasion. In fact, our neighbors hanging out the Halloween decors outside their home with all the lights, even in our office too, Halloween is everywhere! That's why I have not thought of Christmas yet but granny is right Christmas is just around the corner. Meanwhile, some of my Christmas decors are needs to be upgrade. I need to buy C6 led christmas lights for my Christmas tree, needs Christmas balls, garlands, and wreath.

Need to have the gazillion of Christmas lights to have a home like this one. Not! lol

Modern Coffee Tables Design

I couldn't exactly tell the kind of home style I have right now. Since I'm living in a town-house the exterior design is already fix, not my pick! All I know is a loft style. The interior design is a mix of contemporary and traditional. I'm not really sure. hehehe I put modern stuff here, vintage stuff there, contemporary over there, etcetera.. I put all together whatever I like. I think I have a serious problem of knowing what type of house I want. I may consider to get a home decorator just to know what type of home I have. Right now, I found some interesting modern coffee tables in the Internet. Now, my question should I put this modern coffee table in my traditional living room? Help.

Occa 690

Coffee table, black-stained oak veneer materials.

Occa 68665

This is a very functional coffee table with storage, black-stained oak veneer/matte black glass/brushed steel materials. Some of them have tabletops that can be raised to a higher position, so you can work on your laptop or enjoy a meal and just lean back on your sofa and relax afterwards.

Yesterday at the Promenade

I have no plan to stop by over there it just happen so quickly while I was driving to the supermarket for food shopping yesterday, my mind have changed suddenly I take a detour towards at the promenade in Coconut Creek City. It just a few miles away from where I live.

Glad I did because I bought a pair of shoes, and the opportunity to take photos. I love the place not that  too crowded. I found an interesting Asian restaurant over there which I have the reason to drag my husband to go there with me next time.

Wish List

My wish lists are always be the same except material things. My wants for shoes, bags, clothes, jewelries, etcetera are can be change like for example today I so want to have satchel bag, and then it will change after a few days if I found something new in store. Quirky, I'm so quirky, I know. That's why my wish list are not for material things it is for practical needs. I wanted to pay our mortgage in full amount the soonest or before I will turn 40. That way my husband and I can save more money for our retirement. Then I want to buy a house for my parents and my in-laws so that the money they're getting from social security disability will put into their savings account. I want them to enjoy the money for whatever they want to do. Hope my wish will come true.


Honestly, I never heard about hydroponic systems until recently. My knowledge about planting vegetables, fruits or trees are very limited. The farms I know are those traditional farmers who plant crops in the soil. I just learn recently that people can grow plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil it is called Hydroponics. Where soil is no require. Oh noh.. where did I go when my professor teach us about that? I can't recall! he he

Hope he won't find me.. I cringe! lol

Electric Blanket for Winter

Time flies so fast! Where did the time go? Autumn is almost to an end, I hate when its too much cold. I love Autumn all the way around. Sigh. Yet Winter is just around the corner I am so not looking forward for it. I may sound crazy here (yeah, I know, I live in Florida) because Florida winter is not as bad as to compare to up North and the Midwest states but I'll tell you it freezing sometimes here. I'm not used of 30 degrees weather. Good thing my MIL bought me an electric blanket just in case our heater would not enough to keep me warm. Another good investment to buy for winter. Swear.

Customer Service Job

In the USA customer service representative work is very demanding. I tried to apply for that position several times in the past but I am very unlucky. I know the fact that customer service associate deals with the customers every single day it can be very stressful. Dealing directly with customers by telephone or face to face is a big challenge, and that the integral part of that job. Because without the customer service representative a company would not have a business. They are the lifeblood of any business.

This is What Greets Me this Morning

Morning light- sunrise blows me away big time. I'm not a morning person but I love the sunrise, the dew, the smell of fresh morning air, and the singing birds. I can only see, feel and hear them when I need to get up early in the morning to attend some important appointments. Other than that my morning is just normal, sleeping on my bed under a cocoon whenever I want to.

But today, I was up because the Sun wants my attention. It was too beautiful to ignore. Glad I did. I could never capture this.

My first shot. The thick clouds are yet fully moving away from the Sun.

Second shot. After just a few minutes the Sun is up. Beautiful.

Vism Scopes

My father (Vince) used to own scopes for his job in the boat (as a fisherman). Usually him and his colleagues watches the fish for them to know when to catch. And they also used it to see at far if there is pirates coming towards their boat. He shared plenty of stories to us sometimes funny but most of the time were terified us because the danger of his job. It is not easy being away from his family for almost two months in the sea just to support our needs. I am blessed to have a father like him.

Name Badge at Work

Ever since I work at my current employer I have never felt alone nor have complains. It has been my fourth months working with them now feels like years just because I enjoy my job and the people I am with. My boss is the best, she's the bomb! With regards with my colleagues they are so comical! There were no dull moments in our department. I have a great job (at least for me), good benefits, great boss and colleagues. With our economy crisis right now? I don't know if there is better than that.

You know, our name badges are not just an I.D. but also use as a key (not literally) to unlock doors. Although we have security guards in every entrances of building one and two but we couldn't get in the building unless we swipe our badges at the sensor on a door. It also use to swipe in and out on our clock machine, everything has to swipe- it sounds like this, tooot...tooot..tooot! I just amaze. he he

Happy weekend!

Get Rid of Dark Circles

It has been a while since my last conversation of my family back home until I finally gotten a chance to Skype with them last night. Do you know the feeling of being home sick? Then again, when talking (on the phone) or seeing (on webcam) with my family makes the homesickness away. I was able to see my younger sister who's working now as a volunteer nurse in one of our city's clinics over there. She looks fine but I noticed the dark circles around her eyes. I know her jobs can be very stressful and tiring especially if she'll duty during at night time. I give her the link for her to learn some remedies for it. She's glad to know.

Anyhow, I have now learn on how to make a panoramic photo, thanks to my zoom browser ex software! I can now create photos like below.

Soaps and Football Games

Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer

One of the greatest inventions ever is the DVR. I just don't know how I managed my life before this nifty creation. While most of the shows I really enjoy don't come on until the prime time hours, there are a couple of programs that I never miss now that I have my DVR set up with my satellite TV from this website.

I used to set my VCR to tape Days of Our Lives every week day for me, but sometimes the tapes failed me. They were either old or the video or audio would be messed up. Though it didn't happen every single time, it was still frustrating when it did occur.

What I love even more than my daily soap is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I always make time for their games, not wanting to rely on the unstable quality of a VCR tape before DVR options became popular. This wasn't a bad thing unless it was an early game on Sunday. I never miss church either, but I would always get home two minutes before kickoff. I hated cutting it so close, but hey, I'm not the one who scheduled the games to come on 30 minutes after church services end.

Now, I don't have to miss either one anymore. I have both set up to record automatically on my DVR. I no longer have to worry about a scratchy video or horrible audio with my soap opera. I can actually stay and have some fellowship after church now too, knowing that I won't miss a moment of the game when I get home.

Home Style

There were time (like this evening) I can sat down on a couch the whole time just to watch a random shows. I particularly like watching HGTV channel, Food Network, Travel channel, History channel, TLC or sometimes E!News. The first three channels I just mention are my favorites. So many ideas I can get from HGTV when it comes to home decoration, staging, selling a house, buying a house, etcetera.

I can diy (do-it-yourself) on staging my living room and kitchen (my favorite!). Just a simple rearranging the whole set-ups and the decorates are not a big task to do, it just so easy the results makes a whole different without buying new stuffs. That's how I learned. Although It depends because there are some other stuffs that needs to replace if our utility sinks are old and rusty already. Or, if we need to get a new butcher block tables to have a kitchen island instead of making a real kitchen island would cost us lots of money.

Anyway, I like to diy (wish I'm a carpenter so that I can create an adirondack chairs that I like) home decoration, cooking and even styling my clothes. :)

Found A Gem On Demand Last Night!

Thanks for the post, Calvin Roberts

I couldn't sleep last night, so I decided to find a movie to watch. Thanks to satellite TV from Direc4U, I have access to a large library of new and classic movies on demand, so I grabbed the remote and started scanning through the list. I couldn't believe it, though, when I discovered amongst the available films the cult classic PIRANHA!

For those not familiar with PIRANHA, it's a 1970s JAWS knock-off about man-eating fish (bred by the government for use as "natural weapons" in Vietnam!) terrorizing swimmers at a summer camp. Written by John Sayles and directed by Joe Dante, it's a fun, funny, violent bit of camp horror that still makes me timid about going in the water to this day.

Over the years, PIRANHA has gained such a cult following that it was recently remade in 3D, by modern horror master Alex Aja. The new version is a bloody blast, to be sure, but the original classic will always be my favorite. So you can imagine my joy and surprise when I discovered that I could watch it on demand, anytime I want. With popcorn and soda in hand, I selected the movie from the list and sat back for a late night helping of good, old-fashioned celluloid cheese.

The best part about movies on demand is that you can watch them as many times as you like during the rental period. I enjoyed revisiting PIRANHA so much last night that I watched it again this morning!

ALCS: Game 1 (Yankees vs Rangers)- The Yankees Win!

around 11:00 pm

Oh my goodness, you have know idea how happy I am right now because theeeeeeeeeee Yankeessssssssss win!!! What a classic game. Watching a game likes this in the post season is really unpredictable lots of drama, suspense, and action it thrills to death. Every innings makes my heartbeat pumping so fast feels like I couldn't breath. I chatted my husband while the game is on TV complaining how thrill the game is, and that I could not take watching it especially when the Yanks are losing (on the first half innings) instead he pushes me to watch the game because he knows that the Yanks will gets rally. Sure enough the Yanks did rally on 7th and 8th innings and they win the game. Phew! What a sigh of relief. You guys are really awesome!

This supplements consist of a variety of vitamins and minerals that are important for pregnant woman's health and the health of the unborn baby during pregnancy. Choosing a prenatal vitamin is not as easy as it seems. That's why it is important to know what is best best prenatal vitamins for you and for your baby.

ALCS: Game 1

I'm watching this game right now the New York Yankees are playing against Texas Rangers. I and the rest of my family are rooted for the Yanks unfortunately our pitcher ace (CC Sabathia) didn't do well tonight. He's not as sharp as he used to be I guess long rest kills him, they're off a long week before this game so his rested too much. Although I hate to see them losing the game (it really upsets me) but I'm still hoping  the Yanks will come back to win tonight's game. Hope I am right.

Emergency Portable Battery

Sometimes I feel terrified when I heard the local news about the hurricanes are about to come here in South Florida. Right now is still a hurricane season it will end until  next month (November) so every now and then we have been warn about the possible coming of a hurricane. To be honest I have never been experience such thing nor never been want to experiencing it. Although there is 90% chance I would see it since I live here in Florida now. So, my boss along with my office mates are always on a watch out about the storm they keeping us update. Whenever there a situation like that I panic. I stock bottles of water, powdered cereal and lots of batteries for the flashlights. Fortunately the storm didn't hit us so I am happy. Now I could use the battery for remote control, battery for camera, and or battery operated digital tv.

Baked Acorn Squash

Cut one squash in half, scoop out seeds and strings. Place in baking dish cut-side down. Add a little water and bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 45 minutes or until tender. Fill cavity with dabs of butter, brown sugar and pecans. Salt and pepper to taste.

Stew and Jon

Guest written by our friend Trent Horton

It's always adorable when couples try and teach each other how to do something. I decided I was going to try and teach my boyfriend Jon how to cook. He didn't take instructions from me well so we turned on the satellite we got from and found a show. I have most of the basic ingredients in my home so we waited until a recipe came up that I was prepared for. It ended up being a delicious bean and rice stew.

Nearly all the ingredients are dry except for the water and the chicken broth. After they are all mixed is forms something that looks like a paste. You cook it for about forty-five minutes and then you add water to your desired consistency. Well I put Jon in charge of adding the water so that turned out to be a hilarious misjudgment on my part. I think he thought we were making a soup instead of stew because he added so much water that we could have drank the stew if the beans didn't get stuck. I showed him how to fix this problem by simply adding more ingredients until the consistency was thicker. Now we have about twice the stew that we wanted and we'll be eating it for three meals a day for the rest of the week. Would anyone like to try a bean and rice stew taco?

Guilty Pleasure: Fruit Tart and Peach Cobbler

Oh, so yum! Bought them at Fresh Market for dessert during my wedding anniversary celebration at home last Sunday. Everybody loves eating them. Fresh Market never ceases to amaze me.

Out to Ellis Island

Guest post written by Jim Bentley

My grandson and I went on a trip to Ellis Island to the see the Statue of Liberty yesterday. It was a great day for it, too. We took the subway down to Battery Park and caught a ferry that went out to the island.

On the way there, we sat next to a man named Steve who was also bringing his grandson out, and we struck up a conversation. He was from Alabama, and he was telling me how he had wanted to take his grandson out that way for a while. We both agreed that the statue was an important thing for every American citizen to witness. While Steve was a nice guy to talk to, though, I think he had a little trouble hearing me. He mentioned how he had to remember search for hearing test Auburn when he got back to Alabama. I told Steve not to worry about it, and told him that I’d just picked up some new hearing aids last week. I think that made him feel a little better.

When we got to the island itself, it was quite extraordinary. I hope it’s something that he remembers for years to come.

Real-Time GPS Tracking

Protecting our self is one of the most important things we need to know. Knowing how to defend our self if we are attacked by someone is important because it could prevent our self from being harassed or raped. Don't you know that rapes occur everyday in the United States and elsewhere around the world? The numbers are getting high.

Protecting our self from violent crimes should be on the top of every woman's life. There are many ways on how to protect our self from those bad people such as take a self-defense courses, use defense spray (like pepper Spray or mace), security cameras, GPS Tracking, and among others.

Cocktail Rings

When it comes to accessories cocktail rings is my top favorite besides wrist watches, bracelets and earrings. I like the antique style of cocktail rings, bold, oversize, glass, ceramic or unique designs of it (guess who wants to be noticed? haha!). Sure, it can bring look assertive of my outlooks but that is not a problem.  I don't  buy that much, fortunately, I have some gotten from sponsors (friends and family) who knows exactly what to get for me.  I got two real silver with crystal stones- a gift for my wedding, which are not in the photos because those are exquisite. not! hehe Then the rest are shown below. They have stories which I like to be remember when I turn 50ish.

This was acquired a couple of days ago at work. This belongs to a friendly woman name Marie. I treat her like my older sister, and I respect her so much. She was very nice to me, and likewise.  Marie knows how to dress. She dresses always coordinated from head to toe (knows how to match the colors, indeed). And her blings are unique, bold, oversize... my goodness. For that I always compliment her whenever I see her around. Since I am consistent (i think) she rewarded me the ring below. I was shocked. I can't believe it! It is beautiful. Love it. Ahh... she's such a generous human being. Blessed her.

Photos below: left ring (red ones); was my first acquisition. it was on hold at the cash register, I was attractive by it and the woman owns it told me to get it for some reasons she changed her mind.  got lots of compliments with it, only because it is redish? I don't know. :) the middle one (white); was from Macy's, when I was working with them they rewarded me for selling a Macy's star rewards card. Lastly is the one I mention above. So there you have it... my not so fancy bling-blings yet full of memorable stories.

The Stainless Steel Products

We all know that stainless steel is the "in" thing for appliances and kitchen wares nowadays. Everything from refrigerators to stoves to dishwashers to cookwares comes in stainless steel finishes.

J. Crew: My First Acquisition

These are the type of clothing designs I would wear plus these (bling-bling) accessories and shoe I found at J. Crew online. The thing is I don't have much of moolah to splurge for this stuff. They are not that so cheap you know, that's why I hold my useless wants. But, never that I thought I could own a pair or two of clothing from them until I found some interesting from their on Sale store online the other day.  

What I have found are their Skimmer pants which I am longing for such a long time (since they are not too cheap) that's why I grabbed the opportunity when I found this on Sale at J. Crew.  Being a secretly admirer from them I bought two pairs (yay, hoarder!) one is black and one is slate.  I also can't believe how fast the transit are, bought them the other day and got it today just for 3 days shipping as what they've promised. Paid for only regular shipment.  I'm happy for what I got. Can't wait to wear this!

This is how it looks like when wearing it. Cool, noh?

I'm The Traveling IT Guy

This guest post from Doris Dillon

My commute to work is 1 hour and 15 minutes. Would you consider that traveling on a daily basis? I don't know; I think I'm right on the border. I'm asking because I want to know if I can tell people that I travel for a living. It would be a very unique answer and it wouldn't be untruthful. Think of it this way, once I get to work, I probably do a total of about 35 minutes worth of actual work throughout the day. The rest of the time, I'm going through e-mails and playing online backgammon. This is the life of an IT professional whose services are rarely required. Most of my actual work is paperwork, not in the field. So, based on these circumstances, I think it's fair to say that I travel. I spend 2 hours and 30 minutes per day traveling and only 35 minutes working. I think the traveling requires more effort and concentration. You might say I don't get paid for driving to work, but I couldn't work if I didn't drive.

I have an everyday pattern, which is to eat a bowl of cereal, set my security choice home security alarm, make sure the mailbox flag isn't limp again, place a Dave Matthews CD in my car CD player, and jam on the way to work. Not a bad gig, especially for a traveling IT guy.

Fettuccine with Shrimp

This is my ultimate favorite food so far, had this at least once every week. I'm really not kidding here. But I only cook enough for me to consume in a day or two. Just enough. I love everything of this ingredients, the mushroom (fry the mushroom do not just saute) taste so sweet. Also, the lemon juice makes this pasta taste so great. Yum! 

Ingredients you'll need:

uncooked Fettuccine (1 package)
1/2cup butter
1 pound large uncooked shrimp, peeled, deveined
3 large garlic cloves; chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Salt and Pepper

In a large pot, bring to boil water for packages of pasta. Add salt and cooking oil if desired.  Add pasta and cook, uncovered stirring occasionally about 7-10 minutes or until soft. Rinse with cold water. Drain well. Set aside.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until melted. Add mushroom- fried until it turn brown, then, add shrimp and toss to coat. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and parsley. Cook until pink and no longer translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add cooked Fettuccine continue to toss to combine.

I have friends that like to gamble. To them, playing Blackjack, Bingo or Poker gives them enjoyment in their spare time. Winning the game is a lot of fun. Sometimes we don't know if our luck is good or bad, that is why we keep trying to play just to win the game. I am just so amazed that there are plenty of different kinds of casinos to play nowadays. And oh by the way, online casino is also "in", how is that, ha? Yeah, that is true, you no longer have to travel to Las Vegas or Atlantic City, New Jersey just to gamble. By just one click of your Internet computer you can play any online casino game, such as online poker, slots, bingo, craps, roulette.

Since thousands of online casinos offer gambling online, it is important to put an emphasis on the company’s reliability and track record. While there has certainly been progress, the online gambling industry has been marred by scams and illegitimate practices. That's why it is important to learn more about a particular online casino or gambling site through the list of hundreds of the best online casinos reviews.

Charice: Glee Season 2- Episode 1: Audition

Since I have no time to sit down to watch my favorite TV shows all the time I depend on Hulu dot com to watch for the replays during my free time. I have so much important things to do which is my top of my priority that's why I couldn't catch Glee show on TV. Again, as I said, Hulu is there for me when I'm ready to sit down to watch the show.  I'd watch the first episode of Glee season 2 over the weekend after the premiere.!

Charice did a good job although she only had few dialogues but she had lots of singing scenes. She nailed the ending.

Here's the full episode. Watch it now!

New York- A Place I'd Love to Visit

If time will come for me to fly and visit  New York City I would like to go in Brooklyn where my husband's first home, I'll also go to Williamsburg (Brooklyn) just to look for a vintage store. There are stores I know that has great displays of anything vintage from clothing to shoes, bags, accessories, and to name a few. You know how much I love vintage it doesn't matter if its new or secondhand- the latter is the most.

I have seen and heard from TV, websites, and words-of-mouth from people I know who have been there that New York has so many things to do like entertainment and amusements, history and culture, outdoor sports and nature. Not to mention they have various shopping malls from haute couture to vintage that every women love. Restaurants are one of New York's best to offer for us. There are hundreds of restaurants I could choose to dine, and I would love to go to Mesa Grill (Bobby Flay's Restaurant). I admire his cooking. You have no idea. 

Coffee Shops are somehow I would consider to try in New York since I love pastries I'm sure every coffee shops selling that too.  Oh, I can't wait that moment to be happen. Hoping for real! :)
