Fashionable clothes online

Monday, April 27, 2009

Mothers' day is two weeks from now. I am trying to brainstorm gift ideas for my beloved mom. But she's a little overweight so it's quite hard to guess which clothes from the Plus Size Catalogue fit her perfectly.

My parents will be visiting Boracay, Philippines on that day and for a week actually. They've been having summer vacations for three years now. It's good so that they can enjoy and have fun after all the hard work they've done for so many years to raise us up.

Since they'll be going to the beach, it might be a good idea to give her a summer dress and footwear. However, looking at one online store, I couldn't find a suitable dress for her but found one for me. HAHAHA. I like this dress.

Before getting sidetracked, let me search again for my mother.

I got myself a virtual makeover

I've been wanting to have my hair cut short. But I might regret it because it would take so much time to grow it again.

I found a web site where I can change my hairstyle and I really enjoyed the new looks I've tried. Which do you think is most suitable for me?

If you'd like to make your own makeover yourself, visit Mary Kay's site.
Hope you enjoy it too!

Reading buying guides of gaming consoles

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Grandparents love to spoil their grandchildren.

I wish they wouldn't.

Just last month my nephew and niece asked for a Nintendo Wii because they had been part of the honors' list and were both "Best in Math" in school and as a reward, my mother readily said yes.

I'm never really a fan of video gaming consoles - I played a few times but I couldn't enjoy them just as much as other people do.

But young children these days love them and sometimes, we give in to their demands; especially if they're trying to redeem their rewards for being such good students. "It's summer vacation anyway", my mother reasoned.

Even if I don't agree with the idea of buying portable handheld gaming devices for children, here I am, reading Nintendo Wii buying guide - comparing prices at and skimming over user reviews.

There's nothing wrong with Video Games anyway, as long as the use of such is regulated. They might even sharpen mental acuity because of the speed they develop while playing.

OK. They win.

Quarter-life crisis: There are just so many crossroads

At early twenties, I feel very relieved that college life was over; that I immediately got a job right after graduation and part-time jobs on the side; and thankful to God that I'm financially independent from my parents.

However, it doesn't end there.

There are plans for future schooling, career change and marriage. These three aspects are intertwined that it's hard to separate one from the other.

I wanted to go law school and be a lawyer.
I couldn't.

I can take up a masters course but what will I take up?
I can't decide.

My boyfriend is based in a another country and in the next few years, we'll get married. Will I go, live and work with him in a foreign land?
I don't want to.

We're saving for a house and lot but where will we buy?

No one really knows what the future holds.
It's hard to say.
But people say, we should start building our tomorrow by doing the right decisions today.
It's hard to choose.

Let me just think them over again until I can see God's guidance and use my common sense.

I don't have a little lamp

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

After a long day and a night's work, I still find myself reaching for my pen, journal notebook, Bible and devotional guide. In many instances, I doze off even before I can complete my d evotional entry on my notebook. Often, my father complains that I forget to switch off the light of my bedroom the night before.

I know it's more convenient to use lamps for this purpose for easier reach (to switch the light on or off) plus their aesthetic value. They can be decorative fixtures than can enhance the look of an ordinary room.

Looking for one however by browsing the Internet, proved to be a difficult and fun experience. It's fun because there are many designs to choose from which is basically the same reason why it's difficult. There are indoor reading lamps which are suitable to my purpose but do not coincide with my taste.

Although there are lamps of various styles and decorations, I still find the traditional table lamps more appealing than the others. It's like relishing the Spanish grandeur in the old times.

I just couldn't decide which one.

Just to keep you posted =)

I wish to update this blog by writing anything.
I tried doing some tags but I couldn't finish even one
What's wrong?
I couldn't find the topic to write about.

Let me just take this chance to thank God for the blessings.

Good health - I've never been hospitalized for the past 10 or 15 years. I go to doctors every now and then for examination and the medicines that they gave me where very effective. My problem areas are usually: digestion, cough, sore throat/mouth sore.

See? nothing serious, that's why I am very thankful.

Job promotion - I'm now part of the recruitment and training team of my company - although it's still a part time job, I am happy to move up the ladder. ^_^

My relationship with my boyfriend has gone stronger despite the distance. I would never recommend a long distance relationship to anyone, but because of God's help, we are able to maintain our friendship over the internet - thanks to modern technology.

It was also a blessing that he decided to go to another country for a period of time. His relationship with God matured (probably because he does not have anyone else to rely on - considering the danger of living in such a conservative country).

Gaining friends and extra income through blogging - I am not really keen on earning big time as of the moment. I don't have adsense yet and I am very choosy with my product reviews. I haven't exhausted all the possible means though I might study and eventually venture them out in the future. I haven't earned a lot yet and I am OK with that. I feel rewarded already and I am happy because I was able to meet new friendly people.

Thank you Lord, I know you cause all these things to happen.

Rewarding oneself with leisure

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

There's that unexplainable feeling of relief when after all the hard work and struggles to meet the deadlines, you finally overcame all obstacles. I did it!

The past two weeks had been tremendously busy weeks for me. All of my work assignments piled up and my mother, sister and other people (including my mother's boss) asked me some favors as well. Thank God, that for now I have nothing to worry about anymore.

Don't you think I need to give myself a little reward? There are a couple of things I usually do to relax. I either head to the nearest beach resort or turn on my DVD player and watch films.

I wonder if there are other forms of recreation available for me to have (for a change). So I browsed into different recreation sites and there are some which caught my eye.

One is the circus theater, which is not only entertaining but exciting and exhilarating as you would have to hold your breath for more than a minute because of dangerous stunts and antics of acrobats and rope walkers.

How about buying tickets for a popular sport, like basketball or baseball perhaps?

I used to fancy being a pitcher when I was a kid and still like watching baseball games until now. It never came a reality and I come to terms that I'll have to leave playing to professionals and just remain a spectator. Thanks to the Internet, baseball fans can buy tickets online. Colorado Rookies' fans can order coor fields tickets without much hassle online. Turner fields tickets for Atlanta Braves' fans can also be bought too.

I am also considering watching live concert performances by a solo, group or orchestra performers. Shopping is also in the list, (or maybe more of window shopping?). I can also visit theaters or must I go hiking? Why not just relax at home and do some baking, cooking or drawing? Well, surely... I can do what I want now.

Some notes for you

Monday, April 6, 2009

I don't know if I have lost the ability to write, I've been trying to come up with articles, wishing to write more often; but I often find myself staring blankly at the piece of paper or transfixed at the monitor with nothing coming out my mind.

Dear friends,

I would like to announce a few things.

First, please be informed that I've already removed my Cyber explorations blog after three months of dormancy. If you have linked Cyber-Pchi, kindly update your list and remove that non-existent link. I guess I should leave it to others to talk about technology. I could not catch up with how fast the technology is changing.

On the other hand, I've decided to start another blog from scratch, under my own domain, using the WordPress platform and to be hosted by Kuya Louie of DavaoPress and Freedom of Expression. I have a tentative domain name "", which will feature stories of common, ordinary or sometimes neglected people in our society. I hope to be doing part-journalism, part-blogging for this website. I'll interview people, post their pictures (if they permit it) and write their stories. I might also feature interesting stories of other bloggers. Guest writers will also be welcome to contribute.(Still busy to materialize this though)

I need to change this blog's template too. I've received make-over offers but I still don't have enough time to get my hands dirty and get down to business. I shouldn't have announced this, should have kept quiet and just present results without any promises. Someone has said, "more words, more mistakes".

Careerwise, I have decided to go back to school in June or October of this year. I might shift to another field though like get a diploma and certification for an entirely new degree, or get a masters degree? We'll let's see whichever is better.

How is Pchi after boyfriend left two months ago? I am keeping myself busy so I won't miss him so much. I am so busy so many work assignments that I could not get back to blogging. I am doing this so my mind is always preoccupied with something productive rather than idling time away just thinking of him or counting the days until his return. I send him text messages everyday so he won't feel homesick. Sometimes though. I just let the tears from falling - I mean it's normal, right? Yes, I miss him and I realize that tears are streaking dowm my face now. Well, I am busy. I have many things to do.

By the way, Kuya Louie is offering hosting plans for two more websites at an affordable price. Please drop me a line if you want to grab it.

Fighting migraine attacks

Has it ever happened to you while you were hell-bent on doing your assignments that are due on the next day, you're almost finished, alas! felt a twitch in your head?

The pressure is increasing in intensity by the second. You try to massage the area that is aching but you're becoming frustrated because it just won't stop. Seconds tick by and then it became a full-blown headache. You didn't realize you could have a migraine for thinking so hard.

What to do now?

I wish I know what to do. I always have this scenario every now and then. Often indeed, very often especially because I experience pre-menstrual syndrome every month. Right now, I am having it! I am stressed because I need to submit many reports to my company (plus blogging tasks) before the end of this week.

As you know, I always have many deadlines and so I could never be away from my computer for a long time. Working at home, I find convenience in buying things online from Ebay, Amazon or other auction shops. I couldn't go to drugstore to buy medicine. What a relief it is to know that we can also buy medicines through the Internet. There's this site that I got across with licensed US pharmacists selling Tramandol pain relievers even without prescription at Tramadbluebook.

But hey, what's that? I know analgesic, mefenamic acid, cefalexin, etc but this is the first time I've read about such term (Tramadol). What if it's not safe to use? You know, we should not just take medicines without getting information about them. Health is wealth so we should always research and have an informed mind before trying anything.So I checked the 10 Things You Should Know About Tramadol.

I realized that this drug is effective to relieve severe pain. There were personal testimonies from users who had a better feeling after taking tramadol but I also noted that overdose of this drug can cause coma, heart attack and seizures. Well, that's a big risk but with the severe pain that I am having, do you think it's worth a try? I will call my doctor about it.
