Dual Flush Toilets

I love watching this certain channel where most of the shows are about people buying properties. One of the couple in the show got my attention. They were looking for a house to buy and their major requirement is that the house should be eco-friendly. I noticed that all the houses that they are choosing from has this Dual Flush Toilets.

In the show, the couple discussed why they want a house that has a dual flush toilet. They said that it will help save water and it would save people money. According to them, toilet repair is also much easier and hassle free with a dual flush toilet. Now a days, you can buy a Dual Flush Conversion kit of which you yourself can install in your toilet. Buying it comes with an instruction manual so you don't need to pay a plumber to install it.

Before, I always thought that being eco-friendly was all about saving electricity and recycling trash. I forgot how valuable water is to our lives and that we should also save water as water is one of our basic needs. We should help our mother nature and think green and start a new green lifestyle.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. While perhaps religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as a secular holiday.

The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. The traditional "first Thanksgiving" is the celebration that occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. The Plymouth celebration occurred early in the history of what would become one of the original thirteen colonies that became the United States. The celebration became an important part of the American myth by the 1800s.This Thanksgiving, modeled after celebrations that were commonplace in contemporary Europe, is generally regarded as America's first. Elementary school teacher Robyn Gioia has argued that the earliest attested "thanksgiving" celebration in what is now the United States was celebrated by the Spanish on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida.Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members and friends

Filipino actor Johnny Delgado passed away

Veteran actor Johnny Delgado succumbed to lymphoma or cancer of the lymph nodes on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 1:20 p.m. He was 61.

He is survived by his wife Laurice Guillen and his two daughters, Anna and Ina Feleo.

Delgado, real name Juan Marasigan Feleo, was diagnosed with what was initially thought as colon cancer in 2008. The result of an overlooked biopsy test corrected the findings to lymphoma.

In February 2009, the late actor was reported to have been responding positively to treatments. He last appeared on the ABS-CBN teleserye, “May Bukas Pa,” as Tatay Ben, a kidnapper who enslaves his victims to beg for money in the streets.

The award-winning actor's most acclaimed performances include the film, “Tanging Yaman,” and the teleserye, “Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay.”

As of this writing, details about his funeral service are yet to be announced.

Whenever I think of buying tennis shoes, the very first thing that comes into my mind is the brand, "Nike". I love Nike. They are very comfortable and stylish. My favorite Nike shoe design is Nike Shox. Why? because of the cushy heel it has. My hubby has several Nike shoes too. He walks most of the time while working, doing rounds, and he said that his Nike shoes make him walk and move faster and easier.

I just discovered a great way of shopping for Nike products. Zappos is an online store where there are varieties of Nike products to choose from. Their website is so cool because there are video clips to watch about the products that they are selling. Another reason I like shopping on their website is FREE Shipping! Isn't that great? Few websites offer anything like that. Not only that, they have a 365 day return policy. Wow!

Zappos makes shopping easier, so that is where I'll shop around next time. Actually, I am thinking of shopping for Nike tops or Nike pants next time :).

Pacquiao wins welterweight belt with Cotto TKO

LAS VEGAS – Manny Pacquiao's speed and power were way too much for Miguel Cotto's heart.

Pacquiao put on yet another dominating performance Saturday night, knocking down Cotto twice and turning his face into a bloody mess before finally stopping him at 55 seconds of the 12th round.

The Filipino star used his blazing speed and power from both hands to win his seventh title in seven weight classes and cement his stature as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Cotto took such a beating that his face was a river of red from the fury of Pacquiao's punches but he refused to quit even as his corner tried to throw in the towel after the 11th round.

The fight was billed as a 145-pound classic, and in the early rounds it didn't disappoint. The two went after each other with a vengeance and Cotto more than held his own as they traded punches in the center of the ring.

Pacquiao dropped Cotto with a right hand early in the third round, but he wasn't badly hurt and came back to finish the round strong. But after Pacquiao put Cotto on the canvas with a big left hand as Cotto was advancing forward late in the fourth round, the Puerto Rican was never the same again.

"Our plan was not to hurry but to take our time," Pacquiao said. "It was a hard fight tonight and I needed time to test his power."

Cotto fought gamely but in the later rounds he was just trying to survive as blood flowed down his face and Pacquiao kept coming after him relentlessly. It looked as if his corner was trying to stop the fight after the 11th round, but Cotto went back out to take even more punishment before a final flurry along the ropes prompted referee Kenny Bayless to call the fight to an end.

Cotto's face was swollen, blood was flowing from his nose and his cuts, and he simply couldn't stop Pacquiao from bouncing inside and throwing both hands at will.

"I didn't know from where the punches were coming," Cotto said. "Manny Pacquiao is one of the best boxers I ever fought."

Pacquiao, coming off of spectacular wins over Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton, added another one against Cotto, who had lost only once and held the WBO version of the welterweight title. Pacquiao did it in trademark fashion, throwing punches in flurries and from all angles until Cotto began to slow down and then pursuing him relentlessly until the fight finally ended.

The fight will likely set up an even bigger fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., and many in the soldout crowd at the MGM Grand arena began chanting "We want Floyd! We want Floyd" after the fight ended.

"I want to see him fight Mayweather," trainer Freddie Roach said.

Mayweather may have second thoughts after Pacquiao did what no fighter has done before and win a belt in a seventh weight class. More impressive, though, is how he has fought, dismantling opponents despite moving up consistently from 106 pounds to the 144 he weighed for the fight.

The welterweight ranks will be the last ones Pacquiao conquers, though. He said he will not move up any more in weight.

"This is the last weight division for me," Pacquiao said. "It's history for me and more importantly a Filipino did it.

He was so dominant in the later rounds that Cotto was fighting backward most of the way, simply trying to survive. Pacquiao was credited with landing almost twice as many punches — 336-172 — as Cotto.

Pacquiao earned a minimum $13 million, while Cotto got $7 million

Pacquiao was favored, largely off his last two performances in which he forced De La Hoya to quit on his stool and then knocked out Hatton with a huge left hook in the second round. Some in boxing, including Roach, thought Cotto had been slowed by his devastating loss last year to Antonio Margarito and would be further slowed by having to come in 2 pounds lower than his normal weight.

Two nights seems like forever

My poor husby worked 80 hours 2 weeks ago and 80 hours last week when he finally got his day off this whole weekdays (Mon-Fri) but he never enjoyed his off. He got sick from Monday night until Thursday afternoon :(

I was so worried about him and he was all I am thinking of while I was at work. I was like "I wonder if he can eat now", "I wonder if he is feeling better now". Ten minutes before I clock out, I called home to remind dad to pick me up at work when my husband answered the phone and said that "I will pick you up". I was like " Are you sure you are feeling better now?" he said "Yeah, I was already moving around the house while you were gone". I was happy and surprised when he said that. Then he said "I want us to go somewhere tonight so I'll pick you up". He put a big smile on my face when he said that. I told myself "Aww! He will date me lol!" and "oh my! I can sleep with him in our bedroom at last lol!" He didn't want me to be sick so we have no choice but to separate ourselves from each other. He slept in our room and I slept in the couch for 2 days lol! Those two nights seems like forever for the two of us :(

So after work, we did some groceries, shopped for his shoes and winter boots for me and of course, we eat out :) I love spending time with my husband and I always cherish every second that I am with him. I am happy that we both love each other and I am happy that we both find ways on how can we spend time with each other.

Dad-in-laws birthday!!

Yesterday was my dad-in-law's birthday. We had simple family gathering here in the house. My sis-in-law baked chocolate cake and I helped her in cooking turkey, mashed potato with gravy, baked beans and biscuits. My husband and I gave him projector as a birthday gift. We bought it last week but hubby was so giddy so we end up giving it to him the day we bought it (which was a week before his bday) LOL!

I am glad to have a dad-in-law like him. I feel like he treats me like one of his daughters aawww! :D so I love him and respect him like my real dad :)

American Car Quotes

Safety is the most important thing you need to think of while you are driving. Aside from seat belts, airbags, alarms and perfect brake, you need to make sure that you are driving with car insurance. Why? simply because to keep you and your vehicle safe.

We don't know on what will happen every time we drive that is why automobile insurance is a must. Sometimes even though you are already a professional driver or a good driver, you still don't know what accident might give to you by the other drivers. Sometimes you'll see drunk drivers, young adult drivers that still needs more driving lesson and some are just reckless drivers. Those are the kind drivers we need to watch out.

Automobile insurance is not really expensive unless you have poor driving record or you are married to someone who has bad driving record. If you have bad driving record, it doesn't mean that you can 't drive anymore or you can't get any automobile insurance. You can improve your driving by enrolling yourself in driving classes. And for you to avail reasonable insurance policy, you might want to scout for agencies that specializes high risk drivers.

Got my H1N1 shot today!

Woohhooo! My husband and I are glad that I already got H1N1 (Swine Flu) shot today. I went to my OB/GYN for my monthly visit and they asked me if I want to have it, I answered "Are you kidding me? Absolutely YES!" LOL! I mean I am very glad that I had it because I know that it is a good prevention for me and for the baby against Swine Flu. Not only that, I feel lucky to have it because I have heard on news that there is only limited supply of it.

In regards with the baby, I am 32 weeks preggy now and my fundal height is 31. My OB said that 31 is normal, sooo yiipeee! :D I gained 2 lbs from my last visit (2 weeks ago) which is a good weight gain according to her. I also told her about the contraction I am getting once every hour. She said that that is normal as my uterus is getting ready for my near delivery BUT she also told me that I should call them in case I had 6 to 8 contractions within 2 hours. She was also glad that I don't have swelling (arms and legs) at all :) Now, there is one more test that I have to pass, the Group B strep test which i am scheduled to get on my next visit.

Camelback Displays

There are things that you need to learn when considering starting up a business for exhibit shows. You need to learn how to sell your products and learn how to advertise. Exhibitors usually use trade show booths to showcase their products, services and information. This is an effective way of advertising to the customer what your business has to offer.

Now that you already have a show booth, the next thing you need to have are table skirts. What are table skirts? Table skirts are used in trade shows and special events for draping your table in the shows/events. It makes the table show more appealing especially if you need to cover up unattractive tables. Banner stands are also a big help in promoting your business or trade show. Your banner stands should be eye-catching to attract the attention of the customers. If you want privacy walls and crowd control in your trade show then pipe and drape is what you need.

If you want a one-stop-shop for your trade show then you might want to consider Camelback Displays.
They offer trade show and event needs and they are expert in meeting their customer's needs.

Halloween 2009

October 31st - I decided not to carve pumpkin this year, why? because I want to have pumpkin belly instead :D I am happy that everybody loved my idea and even the trick or treaters liked it :)

To my baby Zac: I hope that you are happy on your first Halloween Day! I love you so much.

Nov. 1st - In the Philippines, we usually go to the grave of our loved ones to light up candles, give flowers and spend some time with them. But since I can't do that this year, I decided to just light up candles here in our room (like what I did last year) to follow the tradition and to remember my loved ones who are in heaven now :)

Gold Coins Gain

I was counting the coins in our coin jar this afternoon when I found old coins and coins from different countries. But what caught my attention was the sparkling gold coin I found. I wasn't sure though if it was real gold or not so I became intrigued and used the web to learn more about gold coins.

Eventually I found a site: They sell and buy gold bullion coins and they also provide information about gold investment. While browsing their site, I came to realize that our gold coin not only carries the value of gold but also the value of coin, which increases with age. the site also actually made me think of investing in bullion. I think I will check out their FREE Gold Guide to learn more about gold investment.
