Strawberries Are Coming Soon!

The strawberries in our garden are slowly growing back again. This is the only advantage of this perennial plant because it keeps on coming back after winter season. We have some in our garden and hope to harvest some succulent ripe strawberries in June. I also planted some in flower pots like the one you see in the pictures here. I will also be replanting some because we are already starting our garden makeover. I hope that our strawberries still taste sweet. I simply love strawberries! I can't wait to see them bearing fruits again for my strawberry cake.

Visit to the ENT Doctor

I really don't have an appointment with the doctor last Monday. I just accompanied a friend and her daughter who had an appointment with ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) doctor, called in German language are HNO (Hals, Nase und Ohren) Arzt. My friend brought me with her to help her translate if ever she cannot understand any German words. That is the problem here in Germany because not all doctors can speak English. I had the same problem five years ago since I don't speak and understand German during those times.I really had a difficulty with communication.

That was a perfect timing last Monday and I am thankful that I accompanied my friend. Its been a long time since I wanted to visit the ENT doctor due to some problems with my left ear. Sometimes, I hear some annoying sounds inside it. The doctor checked it quickly and he said that there is this so-called negative pressure in my left ear. I don't have an appointment that time, so the doctor advised me to have an appointment for next week for more intensive check-up. I hope that it is not too bad.

We all know that fresh fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamins and minerals. It also means that these are the foods that are very good to our health and body. That is also the reason why I always eat it everyday. For those who need hgh supplements to their body, I guess you know where to find it. Some people need food supplements to keep them fit and healthy. For me, fresh fruits and vegetables are my best choice. I always see to it that it is included in my daily diet. How about you?

An advantage that I can always buy it fresh in the grocery stores nearby.

I Love My Dolce & Gabbana from KaDeWe

I really did not plan to go shopping when I had a trip to Berlin last month. Since I had the chance to go around KeDeWe, one of the famous department store in Berlin, I ended up shopping. Actually they had a winter sale that time and most of their branded items are on sale. I had a good deal with a Dolce & Gabbana bag. I love the bag because it is perfect for a traveler like me. I can put all the stuffs that I need when traveling. It cost me a little fortune but I am happy and contented with it.

the famous KaDeWe in Berlin. It stands for Kaufhaus des Westens, called in English as "Department Store of the West". I was there!

Electronics Shopping

I have been shopping online for electronics and gadget since last week. Until now, I can't still decide if I am buying it or not. Hubby was also complaining about our LCD tv. It is not functioning well. He found in the weekly ads this afternoon lcd samsung tvs that are on sale. He also can't decide of buying a new one. We have more priorities about our incoming project. I hope we can start it very soon when the plan is approve. I also hope to decide next week about the gadget that I am planning to order online. I just need it very badly especially for our trip next month. Wish me luck!

Shopping Escapades

Health Conscious

Our system is changing especially when we are aging. Sometimes, we already feel a lot of pains in our body. I am thankful that my backpain is not anymore attacking me but sometimes I experience pain in my left shoulder. That is also the reason why I am getting conscious about my health now. As much as possible, I am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables everyday. Unless when there is a party, I can't say no to delicious foods. I also realized the importance of having insurance especially health insurance. It depends on the coverage and company of your health insurance, sometimes the benefits varies. There is this so-called NC short term health insurance especially for students. It just reminded me to convince my sister who is back to school now to get one like this. Getting ready in times of emergency is always the best defense. Right folks?

Shopping and Sightseeing in Würzburg

I would say, it was only a window shopping. Me and my friend from the United States had a sightseeing in Würzburg (Wuerzburg), a city in Bavaria, Germany. It was during her three weeks vacation in Europe last year. It was quite a nice trip we had in this city.

I forgot to mentioned that my friend had a very good deal of a yellow benetton umbrella. She bought it and bring it with her to the U.S.

Perfect Gift Ideas for Women

Women always love something unique and lovable especially during special occasion. Whether it is a wedding anniversary, birthday, Mother's day, Valentine's Day, Christmas day or simply because you want to give something as thanksgiving to your wife, girlfriend or best friend, there are always perfect gifts to give them. You can also find plentiful gift guides online for you to determine what is the most appropriate and delightful presents you can give.

Here are some of the wonderful gift ideas you can give to women;

Jewellery

I believed I can't deny this, that most women love Jewellery as gift especially during special occasion. Women out there, raise your hand if you don't agree with me! I heard this a lot of times from my fellow women friends that they always wanted something that will last for years and even for a lifetime. In short, Jewellery is one of the best gift to give to women.

Perfumes and Fragrances

I once attended a party and I asked someone that she smells so good. She told me, "when other women love bags, Jewellery or shoes, my favourite is the collection of perfumes and fragrances". I was quite amazed by what she told me. Yes, I agree! I also want to smell good especially when I go out of the house. I always spray some fragrances whether a perfume or just a cologne spray. Most of us women always wanted those great smelling and branded perfumes like Prada, Chanel, Lancome, Gucci, Calvin Klein..what else ladies? I believed you always know what you wanted. Shopping online for it is also a nice idea.

Shoes and Bags

How I wish I can buy Louis Vuitton or Gucci bag! Most women I know always wanted this. I have a story to share. This elderly woman said that if ever she died, she wants to be cremated so that her family won't anymore spend for grave and coffin for her. She also mentioned a wish. "Can you please put my ashes in a Louis Vuitton or Prada bag? At least, I also experience luxury in my life." What a touching story but I heard this true from her.

Hubby also gave me a nice leather ankle boots last Christmas. He said that he always wanted me to be happy and giving presents during special occasion is worth it. I was also happy with his gift. For me the most important thing is, it always comes from the heart of the giver.

That is also the reason why shoes and bags especially beautiful and branded ones are women's weaknesses.

Where to Buy Cheap Furniture

Sometimes buying home home furniture and fixture is quite difficult. It can caused some fortune especially when you don't have an idea where to buy it cheap. You also have to consider a lot of things especially your budget. Other considerations might include its style, durability, safety and space.
a beautiful dining set from worldfurniture.co.uk

Here are some ways where you can find quality furniture with reasonable prices.

Thrift shops, Garage Sales and Yard Sales

Three weeks ago, we went to a thrift shop in the nearby city. Me and some American friends were amazed by the stuffs they have inside. You can find a lot of things from office furniture to dining sets, garden sets, vitrines, living room sets, sideboards, rugs and mats and almost everything you need at home.

One of my friends found a very cheap complete bedroom set. Others bought computer chairs and tables, home decors and accessories. One of my friend even found two chest freezers that are still in good condition. She said, it was perfect because she need those appliances. Everyone was happy because they brought home something good, usable and are really very cheap.

You can only find cheap stuffs like these in garage sales, yard sales and thrift shops. That is also the reason why we will be coming back again this weekend to that second-hand shop.

Bulletin Boards, Local Newspapers, Weekly Newspaper

As I came back from grocery shopping this afternoon, I found again this free weekly newspaper that is dropped in our mailbox. Here you can find lists of different things from realty to pets, restaurants, antiques, furniture, appliances and so many more. The section that I always love to watch are the antiques and second-hand furniture. Sometimes you are even lucky to find new furniture that are very cheap.

I always find cheap furniture at the local newspaper. We are receiving one daily because hubby is subscribing it. Bulletin boards posted on stores, restaurants are also very helpful in buying cheap furniture.

Furniture Stores

Of course, you can always find reasonable prices of furniture in these kind of stores. Always watch out for furniture that are on-sale. This is especially true when the season is changing. Most of the time when spring and summer is almost over, you can find garden sets that are discounted because the season is ending. They are also offering promotional items at discounted prices.

Lastly, I would say that sometimes, we need to take time in buying furniture especially when we are considering our budget. Through the help of internet, we can also browse online for cheap furniture.

What's Up

Good evening folks! It seems that I am always busy most of the time. Yes, I am! and truly very very busy. I had quite a scary experience some minutes ago. I guess scary is not really the adjective for it. I was just nervous after knowing that I can't already view one of my sites. I felt so uneasy because I thought, I already lost that site of mine. Good to know that after a thorough investigation, it is still available. It was a false alarm. I wish to share the whole story in my other blog tomorrow. I am quite tired and sleepy now after having a long day and night. Goodnight Europe!

Beautiful Day

We had such a beautiful day today. I am thankful about that. It seems that spring is truly coming soon. The weather was not so cold anymore and I hope that it will be friendlier the next days. There are a lot to do this coming spring and summer time. We will be building a two-car garage and a terrace. We might also fix our bathroom. That is also the reason why I always look for bathroom faucets and also for bathroom ideas everytime we visit the home design store. I can't complain for anything today. Everything just went perfect especially after spending some hours in the gym and sauna. Thanks to my friend Joy for the company. Have a great evening folks and enjoy the coming weekend. More updates in my other sites.

Saying Goodbye to Winter

Good morning Europe! Good day everyone! We are having sunshine again. I guess spring is fast approaching. I noticed yesterday, while looking on our garden, that the tulips are slowly growing. I hope we can finally say goodbye to winter. I don't need it right now. I can't wait to see the flowers in our garden again. I am quite excited to go gardening soon. Thanks God for the very nice weather today!

I am saying goodbye to winter. No more snow please. Here is an image taken last December 2010. I also wish everyone a beautiful and wonderful month of March.

snow time last December 2010.. such a fairytale scene but I want to say goodbye to winter now. Take care folks. I'll see you later again. Off to a Fasching or carnival in a nearby city.
