I have here an image taken during my vacation in Las Vegas. One of the shows that I love to watch is the dancing fountain in front of Bellagio. Don't you know that this fountain is estimated to cost around $75 million to build. I was amazed by it. It is also built with network of pipes with more than 1,200 nozzles that make it possible to stage fountain displays coordinated with more than 4,500 lights. Never forget to watch this free show once you visit Las Vegas.
I am also signing-off earlier tonight. I need to browse savoy house lighting before signing-off. I also need to wake-up tomorrow very early for a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle with friends. Thanks in advance for the ride.
The Fountains of Bellagio is a vast, choreographed water feature with performances set to light and music. (See musical fountain.) The performances take place in front of the Bellagio hotel and are visible from numerous vantage points on the Strip, both from the street and neighboring structures. The show takes place every 30 minutes in the afternoons and early evenings, and every 15 minutes from 8 p.m. to midnight. Before a water show starts, the nozzles break the water surface and the lights illuminating the hotel tower turn to a purple hue (usually), or red-white-and-blue for certain music. Shows may be cancelled without warning because of wind, although shows usually run with less power in face of wind. A single show may be skipped to avoid interference with a planned event. The fountain display is choreographed to various pieces of music, including songs by Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, and Gene Kelly. wikipedia

Actually, the event is called Pinoy Dance Night. Of course dancing all night will take place. There will also be a raffle draw and the first winner will receive a free plane ticket to the Philippines. The best part I think, will be the dinner wherein lechon and other Filipino dishes will be served. Don't forget to bring 20.00 Euros for your entrance fee. I guess this is not too bad for your pocket. More infos to come soon!

Sometimes life is just so simple. It is the simpliest thing that makes a person happy. I am thankful that I have quite a good life right now. Trials and problems might be always along the way but these are only challenges which test us how strong and determined we are to face it. Besides, God sees everything and He won't give us crosses that we cannot carry.
Have a blessed weekend!

How I just wish that I am home this time...even just to give comfort especially to a loveone. Sometimes it is just difficult to be away from your loveones but there are always ways where you can meet again....and again!
One of the beautiful scenes I miss from my home country. There is where I used to sit especially in the afternoon watching the beauty as the sun goes down....what a priceless view of nature and I truly miss it!

This beef brocoli recipe w came from a very good friend of mine. I only made my own style. You can see in the image here that there are brocoli, carrots, green pepper and beef that are mixed all together. I just don't have enough time to write the complete recipe of this and how to prepare it. I will see if I can do it in my future post. Watch it out!
This is a good food because it has a lot of vegetables like carrots and brocoli which are high in fibers and vitamins. I love this food!
Here are some images taken during our visit last January 2010.
Since 1521, devotion to the Santo Niño has grown and has taken root in Philippine popular piety, particularly in the Visayas; pilgrims from different parts of Cebu and the rest of the Philippines make their yearly journey to the church to take part in the procession and festival. Starting in 1980, the Cebu City government organized the Sinulog Mardi Gras and eventually gave incentives to tribal dance groups. The first Sinulog parade was held in 1980, organized by Dávid Odilao, then Regional Director of the Ministry of Sports, and Youth Development. The parade was composed of students dressed in Moro costumes, dancing the Sinulog to the beating of drums.
The idea caught and thus, under the direction of the Cebu City Mayor Florentino Solon with the help of several influential Cebuanos, Odilao turned over the Sinulog project to the Cebu City Historical Committee under Kagawad Jesus Garcia. It was the task of the Committee to conceptualize the Sinulog festival and make it into a yearly event from then on.
In 1981 the following year, the concept of the Sinulog Parade was actualized, involving practically every sector in the Cebuano community. Marking its difference from another popular festival, the Ati-Atihan in Aklan, the Sinulog focuses not on the ritual itself but on the historical aspects of the dance, which, as it has been said, represents the link the country's embrace of Christian faith.

Hubby said that we will eat more fruits and vegetables this time. It is good for our health and for the body. The fruits that I especially love are mangoes, oranges, grapes, apples, bananas, pears, melons, papaya...I guess I love all fruits!
See you later guys. I am going down to eat some grapefruits. This image was taken in Wiesbaden Market. I love their fresh fruits here!
I am letting you know that taking pictures are forbidden inside the Basilica.
It is a popular landmark of Paris. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. is built of travertine stone quarried in Château-Landon (Seine-et-Marne), France. This stone constantly exudes calcite, which ensures that the basilica remains white even with weathering and pollution.

Things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos
is because Things are being loved
and people are being used."

When I cried out in my sin;
It was love that gave me comfort;
It was love that took me in."
Anyway, let's proceed about shopping in Nuremberg. I can't exactly remember how many times did I visited this city. Sometimes I go there with friends for window shopping. When I see stuffs that are on sale like clothes and shoes
I ended up buying some. Sometimes we just visit it for a day sightseeing.
This city in the state of Bavaria, Germany has a lot to offer to its guests and visitors. You can visit Nuremberg if you happen to visit Bavaria, Germany.
There's a loving and kind Father there
Who offers release and comfort and peace
In the silent communion of prayer.
I wish it's tulip time now. Happy weekend everyone! Keep warm especially to all friends in winter wonderlands.
These were the tulips in our garden last spring 2010.

Visiting London without riding the famous London Eye is quite boring. That is the reason why I tried my best to experience it even I am alone. Anyway, a short topic about rack mount computer might be featured in my WWW site in the future.
I can still remember, it was a rainy afternoon when I rode alone in London Eye. My friends from this city had to go to work that time. From there, you can see a good view of London. Sights like the Parliament, Millenium Bridge, Big Ben are visible from above. I wish to visit this city in the future again...in God's will!
This image was taken during my trip in London last 2008.
Straßburg or Strassburg (in German), called in English as Strasbourg is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in north-eastern France. I found this historical city very charming and interesting. It is located near the border of Germany.
Strasbourg's historic city centre, the Grande Île ("Grand Island"), was classified a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1988, the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city centre. Strasbourg is fused into the Franco-German culture and although violently disputed throughout history, has been a bridge of unity between France and Germany for centuries, especially through the University of Strasbourg, currently the largest in France, and the co-existence of Catholic and Protestant culture.

I believed this is the first thing we need to consider when buying a furniture. Last December 2010, I bought a new office chair and a new computer table. It has been a long time since I am planning to replace my old ones. I was not able to buy it immediately because I am considering my budget. I am very lucky to see some items that are on sale. Imagine saving around 65% from the total cost? That is quite a big amount for me. Watch out folks what are on sale.
Whether you are buying a new kitchen set, a living room set, a garden or office furniture, you will always have to consider the space where you are placing the said furniture. I cannot buy a huge living room set if my living room is very small. I will not waste my time and money buying furniture that does not suit in the space of my house. Agree with me guys?
CONSULTING THE EXPERTS
Sometimes, we don't really have an nice idea on what are the right furniture that fits for us and in our house or office. That is not a problem now. In most furniture stores nowadays, there are professionals or experts who offer consultancy services when buying furniture. Good to know, their services are always for free based on my experience. They can provide you ideas on what are the right furniture that best fit for your budget and style. Whether it is a small or big project, they are always their to meet your needs and requirements.
