Sweet Home

I am still in a perrenial search for the best home for my family.  I’ve been searching long and hard, but for some reason, what is presented falls short of my requirements. I admit, a big chunk of my “requirement” is centered on affordability.  But also, I give a premium to the kind of enviroment…

Highway Glitch

My sister had caused traffic the other day.  Her Chevrolet Silverado broke down in the middle of the highway and she was really pissed off.  She felt helpless amidst yelling and irate motorists.   Not to mention the scorching Texas heat above her.  Help seem to take forever to come. I wish getting a car…

Within Reach

A friend who’s based in the States often tells me about the challenges she’s had when she moved to the country.  Being new,  finding a certain store or establishment in the area proved to be quite a task. As they say, location is everything.  Luckily, there are certain areas in America where all you need is at…

Creature Comforts and then some

A friend was in Australia during the holidays.  Apart from raving about the wonderful sights and awesome shopping venues, she was ecstatic about getting great accomodation deals.  She was telling me about hotels in Brisbane and hotels in Perth.  According to her, she found great value for her money in terms of accomodations.  With a wide variety…

The Greatest Shows

My sisters and I are planning an American getaway next year.  We are looking forward to visit several major cities in the States, go shopping, and of course, check out the theatre scene. When we found out that the Wildcats are set to invade the stage, immediately inquired about getting High School Musical tickets.  Luckily,…

Fit and Run

Over the past few months I noticed that I gained weight.  Even my doctor commented on my sudden inactivity and unhealthy lifestyle.  For some reason, or perhaps, the demands of daily life has taken its toll.  Health and fitness is becoming a distant past.   I did a bit of research in the office and I…

Gold Rush

Gold has always been a precious commodity.  Eversince I was a kid, my father would often tell us about its investment value. I was a bit hesitant about collecting gold coins and gold bullion.  But when I found out that quite a number consider this a worthy investment, I  grabbed the opportunity. Of course, aside from its…

TV Galore

When my husband suggested switching to a new cable service, i was hesitant.  Hey, Im perfectly fine with the channels we have now.  The kids seem to like every show they get.  But hubby was bent on convincing me that we have far better choices and lots more of tv time to enjoy.  So, I…

He was asking about tutorials.  Apparently,  juggling studies and work is taking its…
