Why advertise?

An Advertising Agency can make your basic ideas into spectacular ideas. We sometimes have ideas but we don't know how and where to start, so hiring professional and knowledgeable people about promoting businesses and campaigns is a smart move to boost up and increase the number of customers and clients.

There are many places where to advertise. There is the television, radio, newspaper, magazine and flayers. But now a days, advertising in blogs is getting popular. Why? Many people likes to read blogs and the more traffic the blog has, the more chances of your ads get noticed.

Let's face it, having a business is not that easy to handle. You also have to also compete with other businesses. And for your business to be noticeable, advertising is the answer. It will promote your products and/or services you offer. Some businesses cut back on advertising which for me is a no! no! How else would people know your special sales and promotions? If you will not advertise, customers might think that there is something wrong going on to your business or they might think that things are not going well.

If you are in the business industry, you should not lose hope if every thing in your business is falling apart. You have to think of strategies to attract customers. Be creative and be positive. But if you are not sure of what you are doing better consult experienced people, because they know how to make the buzz in the business and I am pretty sure that you will get the result you want.

Hope this 1st trimester will be over soon!

I really don't like the first trimester of pregnancy. I'll always be up early in the morning starving but just thinking of eating something makes me wanna throw up already, and if I don't eat, my ulcer will attack me :( So I have no choice but to force feed myself. This is my second pregnancy and there are times that I can't stop comparing this pregnancy from the first one. My first trimester on our first kid was not this bad. I had morning sickness but I still have good appetite. Oh well! I am not even sure on what is making me sick these past few days. I am thinking its the prenatal vitamins I am taking. Oh my! I can't wait til this first trimester is over.

First day of Spring

This post brought to you by Express. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today is the first day of Spring! I have been waiting on this day because I am sick of the bad cold winter season. I love Spring! I would be able to see flowers all over again and green trees and grass. At last! I would be able to say goodbye to coats and jackets (for the mean time) and say hello to dresses and swimwear.

Speaking of women's swimwear, I saw this very nice two piece swimwear online and it look really nice. I would like to buy it because it looks really hot and I am sure that my husband would want to see me on this hehe. I am pregnant right now but I think this swimwear would fit my big belly because of its low rise bikini bottom. The website where I will purchase this swimwear actually sells not only swimwear but they also sell a lot of nice clothing for a very affordable price.

I also signed up for their Express e-mail for a chance to win one of ten $200 Express GiftCards. Yay! I hope I win so I could buy more clothing for Spring. I am also thinking of buying swimshorts for my husband so we could walk on the beach together with new swimwears. Oh wow! I am so glad that it Spring has sprung.

So if you also want to have a chance to win $200 giftcard, sign up for their Express e-mail and read their sweepstakes rules.

I am pregnant!

My hubby and I are both so happy that our son will soon going to have a sibling to play with. Before we took the pregnancy test yesterday, I already had a strong feeling that I am pregnant because I felt the symptoms already. Symptoms that I felt when I was pregnant to our son.

We were extremely happy that there is another addition to our family and that our family is growing. I love being a mother and expecting another baby this year is what we have been prayer for since last year. It was actually weird because last Ash Wednesday, I went to attend the mass with my son and I prayed. I prayed for blessing and I didn't expect that this is the blessing that we will get from our Father above.

My friends and families are excited and happy for us. Zachary don't know yet what is happening and I am excited for his reaction when he sees and touch his sibling :)

Seasons greetings from Vancouver

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham

The time was right for us to travel to Canada this holiday season. We were going to travel by train with my uncle, who is an ordained priest, but he canceled last week and we were left with two choices. We opted to take a rental car instead of a plane flight to Vancouver, British Columbia. My wife seems to think that the best car in the world is made by Plymouth, so instead of renting a Toyota we opted for a Plymouth. This was a small price to pay for getting to experience one of the most beautiful and enchanting cities on the West Coast. Before we left the house, we set our home security alarm (ADT systems) and put the dogs in our neighbor's kennel.

Christmas in a foreign city is something quite out of the ordinary. The room service we received in the hotel was second to none. The flower gardens in Victoria were closed for a couple days due to the weather. What impressed my wife and I the most about Vancouver was the coffee and architecture. We're from Pasadena and everything we see is very cookie cutter themed. The unique downtown, excluding all the homeless, had us snapping pictures right and left. Instead of driving back down, we decided that we would in fact take the night train that we originally wanted.

Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

My son woke me up around 8AM wanting some milk. I turned on the TV because I couldn't go back to sleep after giving his bottle. I was stunned on what I saw on the news about the big eathquake and tsunami in Japan. My first thought was about my two friends who lives in Japan. I immediately messaged them on Facebook and thank God! They weren't in danger.

It was really a heartbreaking news watching the effect of the catastrophes they had. Lots of people lost their property, lots of people died and missing and lots of people lost their source of living. My heart goes to all the people in Japan specially those who were affected by the tragedy.

Banana Nut Bread

Everybody here in the house likes banana. Yesterday, I noticed there were ripe bananas so I came up with the idea of making banana nut bread. I am glad that they liked it and I will soon make another one since it was sold like pancakes hehe. I am so proud of myself because I am improving in cooking and baking. I am still hoping I could make a cake one day :)

Bad driving record

We drove to the store late last night (like what we do most of the time) to shop for our needs and some wants. I am getting hooked into cooking so I bought lots of seasonings, cooking ingredients and pans that I will need in cooking. Hubby bought some DVDs and Wii accessories. Aside from the diapers and baby food we bought for our son, we also bought him a toy. So all in all, we were glad and thankful that we were able to pay our bills and bought our needs and wants.

On our way home, we saw an accident happened on the road. It was not bad but it slowed down the traffic. I told my husband "I am glad that we have a car insurance because we never knew on what will happened in case of accident like that." Hubby said "I know, it is better to be safe than sorry". I asked him about the reasons on why the cost of car insurance increase. He said "Your policy rate will increase if you have bad driving record or if you are married to someone with bad driving record and if you don't pay your insurance on time". He also added that it is very important to know first the accident coverage before purchasing an insurance.

Aside from most of the states here in the US requires everybody who has a vehicle to have a car insurance, it is also good to have it because we could be protected in the event of catastrophe.

General Tso Chicken

This is the first time I cooked General Tso and I am happy that hubby liked it. I decided to cook it because I knew that this is his favorite. It consumed me a lot of time cooking this but in spite of it, I was happy with the result of the taste. I served it with fried rice.

Sights in Barcelona

When we went down to Florida last August 2010 to meet my relatives from London, one of my cousin was not able to come. He is also from London. His mom said that he could not get another leave at work because he already used his leave when he went to Barcelona with his friend.

Her mom showed us some of his pictures when he visited Barcelona and oh my! the place where he stayed at was nice. My aunt said that there were lots of self catering apartments you can find online, but the ones they got was affordable, clean and accessible to stores, bars, museum and shopping centers.

Sights in Barcelona are breathtaking. I can say that based on the pictures that my aunt showed me. Barcelona has lots of big Cathedrals that is a must see. So I asked my aunt about how my cousin adjusted with the food there. She said "According to him, there were many restaurants and cafes that serves good food there".

We finished are chat after eating salad dessert. I still could not take out of my mind about Barcelona, Spain though because it is always my dream to tour Europe one day.

Out there on my own -Thia Megia on American Idol Top 24

OMG! Her performance last night on Idol was superb! Her voice was really good. Another thing I like about her is a humble girl and she don't act like a diva. She don't try to be somebody else. Go THIA! You have my vote :)

Pink Scrubs

Hubby was scheduled to work 3 weekdays and doubles for weekends for the last couple of weeks and still has the same schedule for the next weeks. Yeah! He is so busy working and I am busy washing his nursing scrubs and uniforms almost every other day. He has lots of nursing uniforms but for some reason, he only wear 2 pairs of scrubs. Don't ask me why because I don't know.

I finally decided to lurk for scrub uniforms online to buy more so I don't have to wash his uniforms two or three times a week. While browsing over the internet, this pink scrub caught my attention and I jokingly asked hubby if he wants to wear pink haha! He replied "My patients and fellow nurses and doctors will lose their respect on me after seeing me in pink" then he laughed hard.

I am glad I married a man that is a good provider, who always think of our future and most of all, has a sense of humor. He most of the time make me laugh even though he is tired from work. Anyway, I am excited to receive 3 sets of nursing scrubs I ordered online. I hope to get my order pretty soon.
