time to get skin tanned this summer

The temperature is getting hotter and some schools are already done with their commencement exercises this month. Shopping malls and department stores have already displayed their swimming gears and attires for sale. These are indeed obvious signs that summer is here. Most of us are already looking forward to enjoying a summer vacation alone or with family and friends, aren't we? The scorching heat of summer is calling. It's definitely time to get our skin tanned (or burnt, if you skip the sunscreen ritual). So, how do you plan on enjoying your summer vacation? Where are you headed? Are you going to swim at a beach or at a pool resort? If it were all up to me, I would most likely prefer the beach because I don't know how to swim. I'll probably just stay where the water is not too high. Swimming at the pool is also fine with me; provided that we go to a swimming pool resort that provides excellent service. It is not enough that it has great ambiance. It should also be

I would like to share this image that I found online since this is a little bit related to my earlier post. :-) Pretty sure there are some times when we would like our partners to see things our way. However, no eyeglasses can ever provide for this intangible need. Truly, communication is still the best way to address any type of problem or argument you have with your partner. Right!

benefit from buying prescription glasses online

Having perfect eyesight is important especially for most of us whose jobs would require keen and sharp vision. However, because of a lot of factors such as age, heredity, not to mention our lack of proper eye care, it would be quite hard to maintain that naturally perfect vision throughout the years. Thankfully, there's technology to hopefully help us see more clearly again. For those who are looking to buy affordable and reasonably priced eyeglasses, you must not make the mistake of buying them at the expense of quality and your looks. Making the wrong choice and buying eyeglasses with the wrong fit will not only provide you discomfort but it will also make you look twice as old. If you are budget-conscious, though, you are likely to appreciate the many choices of affordable eyeglasses that are sold online. So, how can you benefit further from buying prescription glasses online? Well, if you don't have any idea what type or shape of frame would best fit your face, you

finally he's arrived

My elder brother arrived from Abu Dhabi today. I think it has been 3 years since we last saw each other. As a sister, I would have wanted to go with the rest of the family to fetch him at the airport earlier today. The thought of seeing him again (plus the presents that we call "pasalubong" *wink*) is already enough to excite my thoughts. However, since it's a work day and I still didn't have any leave credits yet, I thought I would need to put off seeing him until my working hours are through. I forgot to mention that I also needed to wait for my husband because we are going together to the restaurant where my brother and the rest of the family were waiting. Suffice is to say that my excitement in seeing my brother back again got extended for several hours. Can anybody relate to that? Anyway, when we get to finally see him at the restaurant, I didn't quite expect to see a reaction that seems to show that he was more than excited to see me. Well, it is probably b

finding a good real estate agent

Whether you’re buying or selling homes or properties, real estate agents are very important for any profitable and secure real estate transaction. In many cases, property agents are only known through word of mouth. Perhaps you know these agents because they are recommended by your family and friends who are satisfied with their services in past transactions. You can also find real estate professionals through advertisements in classified ads or through the Internet. From the moment that you advertise your intention to buy or sell a home, it would usually mean that you will be opening your door to property agents. These agents will be very persistent in trying to represent you; after all, they make a living through buying and selling properties. They are also willing to do the extra mile just to help you achieve your dreams and goals. A good agent is known for his credibility, so don't be shy to ask questions. You can ask and get yourself educated on the many aspects of buying an

on walking our talk

We are probably not aware of it but most of us are guilty of not walking our talk. There are times when, even when we have already set our own principles and standards on what we believe to be the right thing to do, we would find ourselves settling to do the wrong thing. Why is it just so hard for most of us to walk our talk? Why is there discrepancy between words and actions? Perhaps it is because it is tempting to backslide or to do the opposite especially if this would mean convenience on our part or something that can keep us out of trouble. But hey, why should we complicate things? Let's not make a wrong thing seem right just because almost everybody is doing it and it is something that we all can benefit from. Just saying. :-)

Change. We all want to change for the better but, at times, it is such a struggle to be able to successfully do so; but once you finally found the courage to take the first step towards the process of "change", everything else will soon follow... hopefully, with God's will and guidance. However, it is always possible to find yourself falling into the trap of going back to the previous state you are in. You might feel tired about your failed attempts at changing because you would always find yourself back at square one rather than progressing towards the finish line. And you will then start to wonder and ask yourself, "Why did I mess it up, again?" Of course, it is easy to figure out why you failed because you will be able to assess the consequences of your failed attempts. On the brighter side, you can always start again - 'more intelligently', as Henry Ford puts it. Today, with the help of God, I am changing. I am starting again more intelligently to
