Protect Yourself

Be alert! It is all over the news. The virus, a mix of pig, bird and human genes to which people have limited natural immunity had spread to at least nine countries. Global health authorities warned that swine flu was threatening to bloom into a pandemic and the virus spread farther in Europe. To prevent being sick or getting the swine flu, the number one precautionary measure is to always wash your hands.

We should guard ourselves from the diseases or any viruses that will damage our healthy life. Act fast, protect yourself and loved ones. Get the swine flu kits. Do not wait too long before going to the doctor when you think the swine flu has hit you.

Second Time in Hawaii

I am ready for another Hawaiian getaway! Last March, we took a 2 weeks' vacation in Hawaii. We visited three islands namely Oahu, Hawaii's Big Island and Kauai. My husband and I had so much fun while in Hawaii. We never missed any scenic spot. We are always on the go! The first thing we do in the morning was to take a morning walk around Waikiki Beach and watch the serene waves. We love the weather in Hawaii.

While spending our 4 days and 3 nights in Kauai, my friend told me to go to Maui Island and experience the best and finest Maui Resort. They have been to Maui and stayed in Ka'anapali resort to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Just imagine how lovely it is to celebrate anniversaries in one of the finest Maui resorts. I bet it would be a lot of fun and most unforgettable moment of my life! Therefore, the next time we will visit Hawaii, Maui Island will be in our itinerary.


There's more to enjoy in Maui than enjoying the beautiful resort. You can watch a humpback whale breach the sea and tee off at a championship golf course. You can also drive up the scenic 53-mile Hana highway and spend a day browsing the museums, shops and restaurants in Lahaina. From the summit of Haleakala Crater to the shore of Big Beach in Makena, Maui has a lot to exhilarating outdoor sights, activities and entertainment for every visitor. As we celebrate our second wedding anniversary this year, we might consider Maui Weddings as we exchange our vows near the beach for the second time around, since it is the perfect location for a honeymoon or a wedding. How romantic! I cannot wait for another Hawaiian vacation!

The Silver Mime

Hang loose!

As you walk or shop around Waikiki area, you will find this silver mime. He will not move unless you will drop a dollar or two. You have to drop any amount just to take pictures with him. If you will go to Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, you will find this silver mime in front of the Waikiki International Market.

Winter is Not Over Yet

It feels cold all day for a month now after the opening of spring season. My husband and I should be planting vegetables and flowers in the garden by now but we just can't do it because it is very cold. Our temperature is between 40 to 50 degrees and that feels a little colder when the wind is blowing. The snow in the ground are slowly melting and there's a little pond in our backyard. We hope to get more sunshine in the coming weeks.

Since it is officially spring, it is time to clean the windows especially the Glass Tile in the kitchen that needs some thorough cleaning after the snow was piled outside. I am so ready for the real spring weather!

Rustic is Beautiful

Furniture adds ambiance to a home. It is always where you want to lay and rest after a very tiring day. I am a little freak when it comes to choosing the style and design of a furniture. Everything should look good and beautiful to me and that I know I am satisfied with what I get from my money. It would be a nice idea to have rustic furniture for a log cabin. I would not hesitate to choose rustic furniture for my home because they are build with quality craftsmanship.

I would like to have the rustic log bed because of the elegance and beauty of the wood. It will be perfect at the master's bedroom, which my husband and me would love to have. I just wish that there would be more designs where I can choose but overall, I love rustic furniture!

Bargain Shopping

In this tough economy, everybody is doing their best on how to save money and do their budget list. My husband and I have been cutting expenses since we have to pay so many bills. We have to be thrift all the time or else we will be broke at the end of the month. Saving makes our lives better because we know how much we are going to spend when we go grocery shopping.

There are many ways on how to cut your budget and still buy what you want and need by getting coupons online, magazines or newspaper. You can also visit because they offer coupons and promotion codes for more than 2000 online retailers. If you need to shop for new clothes, you might want to check Urban Outfitters coupon so you do not have to pay more for the prize. You can actually save for the coupons without ruining your budget. Shop wisely!

The Mokoli'i Island

Winn and I spent 2 weeks in Hawaii. We visited 3 islands in Hawaii - Oahu, Hawaii's Big Island and Kauai. While at Oahu, we visited some scenic spots that people enjoys to stop and to take pictures. We stopped by at Kane'ohe Bay and took a picture of the small island on the east side of Oahu - The Mokoli'i Island.

Mokoliʻi is open to the public from dawn to dusk. On weekends it is somewhat a popular secret with tourists and locals. It can be accessed by kayak, boat, surfboard, or by swimming; depth soundings are only four feet on its west side. This may be dangerous during any other time or inclement weather. The area is home to stone fish and sharks are often seen around the island, often in early mornings.

Just A Thought

I have been wondering all week about the new Entrecard. I don't know what happen but I am just confused about the New Paid Ads. I don't think it gives me credit for all paid ads. I don't see any difference on my page. But, I still approved all of them.

Anyway, after our trip from Hawaii, my husband told me that he's ready to go for another vacation. He loves the weather in Hawaii and I think it will not be our last trip to Hawaii. As matter of fact, I have been searching for great deals for our next vacation and my friend told me that they are going to Bahamas for their honeymoon. I hope she will be open for any suggestions about this CheapCaribbean deal I found minutes ago.

Cleaning My Car

It has been a while since my last update in this blog. After our Hawaiian getaway for 2 weeks, I got sick for 3 days. I kept the colds for a week. I felt lazy and restless for the whole 2 weeks. I have been sleeping like a baby. Today, I am back to work. I am trying to be a career woman and a homemaker at the same time. Until now, I still haven't unpack our luggage and that shows how lazy I am after our vacation. I guess I am still dreaming for another trip.

And to make my day productive, I did clean my car and our refrigerator. While cleaning the car, I noticed that the windshield had tiny black spots and I couldn't get it off. I even washed it several times just to make sure I am doing a good job in cleaning my car. Then I found this website -, where you can buy reliable car parts for your car if you need one. They offer free shipping on orders above $50. They have wide selection of wholesale prices for all major auto maker parts. Visit their website now and start shopping!

We Are Home!

Back to reality! I exclaimed to my husband. We got home around 3PM yesterday, April 1st. Our 8 hours flight from Honolulu, Hawaii to St. Paul, Minnesota was a little bit rough. I didn't sleep during our entire flight. I went to watch 3 movies on board - nonstop! I had a bad colds a day before our flight going home. I got a terrible headache! When the plane landed in Minneapolis - St. Paul, Minnesota, we had to wait for our connecting flight to Grand Forks, North Dakota for 3 hours.

I really need to get some sleep. I will be back to work very soon. I will keep you posted! Thanks!
