Happy weekend!

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Saturday. It is almost ending in Europe now. Remember that today is the last day of the month. Time really passes by so quickly that we don't notice the days gone by. Not that much for today. I woke-up very late. Imagine waking up around 12 noon time. I went to bed at 4am today that causes me to wake-up very late. We also went to the disco last night and had some. I guess, I don't need to take weight loss pills if I make exercise like aerobics or dancing all the time. Until now, I still don't figure out what is really the best diet pills to take. I know some are very effective and really works good but I just want to make sure that if ever I will take one, it is the best and don't have side effects. Finally, I want to wish each and everyone a very nice weekend!! Have fun!!
It's still winter time now in my place. I am looking ahead for the coming of spring time so that I can see again the blooming back of tulips in our garden like the photo I got here. I got a beautiful quote here to share with you...very inspiring one!!Have a great and blessed weekend to all of you!!

I want some Fossil

I am back here! before I sign-off for tonight I just want to share this topic very quick. I visited a friend last night and we had a great evening doing some things. She was also happy I guess that I visited her. We cooked some food and I baked my favorite German food Scweinebraten. That was really yummy that I was able to eat some before I left home. She also told me that she went shopping and bought a lot of stuffs for her Balikbayan box to send back home. That was good for her and her family. I thought she also bought Fossil watches for his siblings but I was mistaken. She bought instead a very nice Fossil bag which I really like....I want some fossil!!...it was really beautiful!! About fossil watch, next time again, since I spent already some Euros today for two new cellphones! have a great evening!! bye bye for now!!

Amazing Wonder of the World

Have you already seen Colorado River? This is it now, where the famous engineering wonder of the word is found, the Hoover dam. I really can't imagine how the people during that time built this dam..Truly an amazing work of engineering! feel free to visit my Discover USA site for more photos of this..have a great weekend in advance!!

Buying Gadgets

I am feeling tired right now. I woke up so early today because I simply went to bed very late last night after visiting a friend. I also need to wake-up early because we have to go to Neumarkt to bring some papers in the Tax Office and my hubby also need to go the the Auto Repair Shop for his car check-up which is needed for its registration. After that we went to an electronic and appliance store because I saw some SD cards that are on sale. I bought three of them. I also bought two new cellphones which I want to give as presents to my father and brother back home. I finally see the laptop I have been wanting to buy. I use to watch it in internet because I am planning to buy one early this year. I got some money to buy for it but there are more important things that I have to buy first. I am so excited about it already!! have to slowly sign-off guys!! It's party time!!

Where to Ask for Help during Accident Claims

I am finally back here! I am just so busy with a lot of things in life. I finally have the chance to be backed here again. I hope you are doing great for today. You don't have to worry about me because I am doing fine only a bit tired due to lack of sleep. I guess I am having insomnia again for the past days. I am sharing an interesting topic for today especially for those who have problems where to ask for help during accident claims. This topic is especially about personal injury claims. Before that, let me share what happened in August 2007.

My husband had a bike accident last August 5, 2007. I could not forget that day because the day before was my natal day where I spent in a friend's house. Instead of staying longer for a vacation, I immediately went home to attend to my husband's needs especially when he was hospitalized and had ankle operation. The reason why he had accident was because, a boy crossed the biking way where my husband went biking. He was not able to see the boy because there are bushes on the side of the biking way. After my husband stayed in the hospital for more than a week, we immediately hired a lawyer to help us about Bicycle accident claims. We believed that by doing so, we will not have to worry about the claims for the accident. We are just lucky because we are also paying lawyer insurance every year if ever we need their help.

Here in Europe is really different back home. Here you can ask for the help of professionals like lawyers if ever you have problems like claim accidents or any other injury claims. Besides that asking for their help is the best thing to do, it can also make the claims processing faster and fairer. Having an accident is not an easy situation especially if there are bad damages to your body. Sometimes you can stay for the rest of your lives in the wheelchair like our neighbour who had car accident. He is still young and since the accident really damaged his body especially his spinal column and head that he can no longer stand and walk. I don't exactly know if our neighbour had a whiplash injury claims for what had happened.

If you live in UK, you can ask for the help of First Personal Injury to help you manage your injury claims. The best part about their services is that their lawyers can extend help about no win no fee legal services to people who cannot afford to pay for their services. Their experienced lawyers can help you win your case and get what compensation you deserve from your accident or injury. If you have that problem now, don't hesitate to visit them online and avail of their excellent services!!

Have a great day to all!! I have to sign-off temporarily to do some things. See you later!

Back to Bad Habit

How was your Wednesday? I hope you have a great one as the day ends. I got sometime talking to some friends today while munching some food. I am back to bad habit again...eating junks. I still have 2 pringles left. I eat it while sitting in front of my computer. I told myself before 2008 ended to start diet and exercise this year but it seems not working. I know I need to really lose some weight for health reasons. Besides I want to get back my original weight as I stepped here in Europe. Are there any alternatives? Are diet pills really effective and don't have side effects! I will see!! Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!!

Burgruine Hohenfels

Burgruine Hohenfels, The Castle remains of the so-called Schlossberg in Hohenfels. Hohenfels is a small town in Oberpfalz and is a big valley which simply means that it is surrounded by hills and mountains.. It is a very beautiful place especially during summer time when the surroundings are all green. I always love to take photos of this place especially during the different seasons of the year. I considered Hohenfels my second home being a German citizen now.

Feel free to visit my other sites for more photos of Hohenfels. I am featuring it in most of my sites!! have a great afternoon!!

Sinulog festival in Cebu

Today is the Sinulog celebration in Cebu City, Philippines. It is considered to be one of the grandest and famous festival in the Philippines. It is also known worldwide being visited by tourists coming from the different parts of the world. Above is a very lovely and colorful photo of Sinulog festival participants. How I wish to have a vacation in teh next Sinulog. Below is an info about Sinulog from Wikipedia.

The Sinulog is an annual festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, Philippines. The festival honors the child Jesus, known as the Santo Niño (Holy Child), patron of the city of Cebu. It is a dance ritual that commemorates the Cebuano people's pagan origin, and their acceptance of Christianity.

The festival features a street parade with participants in bright-colored costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums, trumpets, and native gongs. Smaller versions of the festival are held in various parts of the province, also to celebrate, and honor the Santo Niño. There is also a "Sinulog sa Kabataan", performed by the youths of Cebu a week before the grand parade.

Recently, the festival has been promoted as a tourist attraction, with a contest featuring contingents from various parts of the country. The Sinulog Contest is usually held in the Cebu City Sports Complex.

Wish to Turn Back Time!

See who's in this picture? This was taken around seven years ago. I had a general merchandising store before in Phils.. The second floor of the store was made as our apartment. We just transferred as this photo was taken.
I had a chat with a friend tonight and was talking about the past..I mean about my past figure..wink! She can't believe that I look quite petite before. Oh well, that is very true! I only weight around 53- 55 kilos before. And now I already got around 14 kilos more! I am not happy with this but I have to love myself no matter how I look. I am even telling myself sometimes, if I could only turn back times. I know I can't. All I just need now is to discipline myself especially about my eating habits. My husband said that I cook good so what can you expect. I simply love food and eating..Do you know any of the best diet pill in the market? I am curious about this!! I really have to sign-off now guys!! It's Good morning already!! time to go to sleep!!

WW: Missing Home

I truly miss home! When I miss home and my family all I do is just look at the photos of my family and home...planning to visit home this year!! in God's will!!
Photobucket

Planning For This year's Vacation

My husband finally spoke up to me. I thought he don't want to go home with me this year. He mentioned that he always wanted to go home but due to some circumstances he can't just say "I'm going to vacation". He is always a hardworking person and always think of his job that sometimes he don't have the time to enjoy and relax. Once everything will be okey, we might be going home this summer in the Philippines. I truly miss home. I have to consider some vacation rentals in Boracay, Palawan or Paradise Island. I want to visit these places once our vacation will push through. If not, I might be going home alone this Christmas. I am quite excited especially that I had a talk with my family just an hour ago! Enjoy your Wednesday guys!! I will be backed later!!
