Hubby Forgot His Cellphone PIN

It's TGIF again. Another weekend is coming. I can't imagine that July is ending in a week soon. So here I am again sharing you some updates. It happened around two months ago as hubby forgot the PIN of his cellphone. After trying it for around three times, his phone was locked. Good to know that I kept the paper containing his PUK number and bingo, he is using an unlocked phone now! I am quite sad after that happening because he forgot to get the cellphone in his work jacket. You know what happen? He washed it together with other laundry. Now the cellphone is functioning no more. It is broken. I ended up giving my other phone to him. Happy Friday to all!

Looking at The Sky in Bavaria, Germany

Blue sky with some cotton like clouds
Beautiful yellow raps flowers on the field
Mint-green hills on the background
What a lovely scene to see!
Nature has truly its beauty!

This was once the sky taken near Parsberg in Bavaria, Germany. I took this photo as we happened to pass-by this field last month.

Paradise Pier, Disneyland, California

Paradise Pier is a themed "land" at Disney's California Adventure Park, Disneyland's sister park. Its appearance is based on that of real California boardwalks. Despite its name and the presence of a nearby manmade lake, Paradise Pier is not actually a pier, but merely a waterside area of the park. The roller coaster California Screamin' sprawls across much of it, with various other attractions and forms of entertainment scattered around it.

Here is an image taken during our visit last 2008.

Wolfstein Castle and The Orchids for my Memes

Good day everyone! It is just too hot outside now. I am thankful that we don't need an aircondition inside the house because we live in an old stone house wherein the walls are very thick. If I am not mistaken, the walls ranges from 1 meter until one and a half meters thick. The cold can stay inside for quite a long time. We usually open some of our windows during the night so that the cold wind can come inside the house. During the day, we closed all windows including the blinds to prevent the heat from coming inside.

Here are the images for my memes. Sorry folks, I am quite late.

Prayer and Sympathy To Demetillo Family

"In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing."

~Robert Ingersoll

A moment of prayers and sympathy to the 4 members of Demetillo family who passed away during a car accident in Saudi Arabia last Wednesday July 7, 2010. To my friend and batchmate Jonathan, may you will be be given more courage, strength and more faith to face the most challenging trials in your life. Our prayers are with you. May your parents, your sister Joyce and her son, Hope rest in peace with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. God bless you!

A photo of Joyce and her son Hope. I got this picture in her facebook profile. This family are my kababayan back in Midsayap, Cotabato, Philippines. Her brother Jonathan who is living in Canada is my friend and bacthmate back in Notre Dame of Midsayap. We will miss you Joyce. I know you are all resting in heaven now joining your Creator.

Joyce, her son and her parents including their driver were on their way to the airport. Joyce and her son are about to go home to the Philippines for vacation as the tragic accident happened.

What is Xeroderma?

I am quite confused about the difference between eczema and xeroderma. My question is; Is eczema a form of xeroderma? I know somebody who has a problem about xeroderma. I don't know but everytime I see her, her skin is always dry from arm to feet and even her scalp is also very dry. In fact she has also a dandruff. I am wondering if she is using a lotion or moisturizer to get rid of dry skin problem also known as xeroderma. I know she has the money to buy a lotion but it seems that she is too frugal to spent for her personal needs.

Skin problems like eczema can sometimes be very difficult. An immediate visit to the dermatologist to have a treatment of eczema is always recommended. Continue reading below for more information about Xeroderma.

Xeroderma, literally meaning "dry skin", is a condition involving the integumentary system, which in most cases can safely be treated with emollients and/or moisturizers. Xeroderma occurs most commonly on the scalp, lower legs, arms, the knuckles, the sides of the abdomen and thighs. Symptoms most associated with xeroderma are scaling (the visible peeling of the outer skin layer), itching and cracks in the skin.

Xeroderma is a very common condition. It happens more often in the winter where the cold air outside and the hot air inside creates a low relative humidity. This causes the skin to lose moisture and it may crack and peel. Bathing or hand washing too frequently, especially if one is using harsh soaps, may also contribute to xeroderma. Xeroderma can also be caused by a deficiency of vitamin A, vitamin D, systemic illness, severe sunburn, or some medication. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_skin

The Fountain in Manila, Philippines

if I am not mistaken, this is the fountain in The Market Market in Manila, Philippines. I am just lazy to search right now. I took this picture during my vacation in the Philippines this year and had the chance to visit Manila for four days.

Time for Swimming

Good evening folks! It seems that another TGIF is coming. I am just done with watching TV in our room. If hubby did not tell me to turn it off, I might be watching TV until now. I don't want to watch TV alone in the living room. What the latest? The right summer time is here. It is time to go swimming in the pool. I am still waiting for a friend to call me so that we can go together. I guess my swimsuits don't fit me anymore. I need the best fatburners to lose excess pounds. I just did not notice that I gained some kilos again last winter time. I just knew it when I tried to fit some summer clothes the past two months. I felt bad again about myself. I am still trying to lose some excess fat. Enjoy your TGIF folks!

Women Need to Know This

I just read this morning in yahoo news that there is some sort of gene that keeps people stay and live for longer years. This is a study made by some scientists somewhere in the United States. I am looking for that article but it seems that I can't find it right now. To all fellow women and maybe men out there, I believed that the hot summer season is here. I would suggest that you better wear sun blocks everytime you go out from your house. Sunburns can lead to skin cancer as we all know. For those women who want to avoid fast aging signs like wrinkles especially on their face, I would suggest that you search about prototype 37c. It is said that this is a top product for wrinkle treatment. It is also said that it is better than botox. I am quite excited with this information. It means that I might prevent having wrinkles if I am already on my forty's or fifty's..lol!

Remembering My Trip to Stratford Upon Avon, Shakespeare's Birthplace

It seems that I haven't updated this blog for some days. Sorry folks, I am quite busy offline doing a lot of chores in the house especially cleaning the dust caused by the little renovation we are having right now. July is here! I just wish everyone a wonderful one.

Here are some pictures taken during my three weeks vacation in England. These were taken in Stratford Upon Avon, one of the cities we visited.

This building is the birthplace of the famous poet and playwriter William Shakespeare.
The second image below is the Avon River that flows in Stratford, thus the name Stratford Upon Avon.

Talking with HB

Wow, I can't imagine that July is already here! I hope you had a great start of the month. I just watched a very good TV program tonight. While watching, I was the same time talking with HB. I told him that the man in the TV program needs a hair growth shampoo because he is quite bald. HB answered that its his problem and I don't have to worry about it. What a smart answer. I am thankful that I still have a quite black thick hair. Anyway, the TV program that we watched was a very informative one. Now it is over and it is time for me to slowly give you some updates.
