My Dream Car When I Retire

 Sponsored Post. All opinions are mine.
Am I retiring soon? Oh well, not really! Last week, I received a letter from the Retirement Office  saying  that if I work until 67, I will get that certain amount when I retire. Believed me, I will never work until 67 because as of now, I am already planning for an early retirement. I would say and hopefully in God's will, I want to retire before reaching the age of 50. I am slowly planning for  it and this is the reason why, I am working hard now to go for an early retirement, have a simple life, do all the things that I wanted to do and most of all,  drive my dream car.


I have a dream car and it is good to know that I am slowly saving for it.  I have been driving a car for over ten years now and I  have the understanding that it is  a must to own one especially if you are driving it daily to your workplace.  It is not a luxury anymore but it is a necessity of having one, whether for family or work purposes.

Furnace Maintenance Especially During Winter

I just look at our window and found out that snow flakes are currently falling from the sky. This is the sign that winter is finally here! If you are having winter season in your area, for sure your heaters or furnaces are currently turned-on now  or else you will be freezing due to cold temperature inside your home.

Winter is the time of the year when the temperature gets really very cold. This is also the time of the year when our heaters are on. Whether you are using a fireplace, wood pellets stove, oil  heater, gas heater or electric heater, all of these furnaces require maintenance from time to time.

View from  one of our windows during winter.
 In countries like Canada and the United States, there are companies who offers services like furnace cleaning and maintaining. For example if you are living in Calgary, furnace cleaners calgary are willing to offer their help and services in order for your furnaces to work the whole winter season.

We have to admit that we need their services especially in this cold winter season. Another thing is, air duct and furnace cleaning is very important for our health and safety and in maintaining the air quality in our homes.

Now, I understand why the chimney man who wears black clothes comes to our home from now and then, to clean and maintain the air duct and the  furnace. Don't miss to call furnace cleaning calgary if you need their help. For sure, they can always assist you in many aspects of cleaning especially for your furnaces.

I am loving the warm inside our home. For me, 18 degrees Celsius is already a perfect temperature!  Our wood pellet stove is truly a wealth during winter time. Sometimes, when the temperature gets really very cold, we are also turning our electric heaters on.

Keep warm and healthy during cold winter season!

Hey, I looked again outside and found out that everything is white now! Hello winter!

Pests in Our Home and Garden

This is not really a funny topic about pests in our home and garden. Are you having the same problem like ours? This is especially true especially if these pests are inside our homes. More on that, there are people who are afraid of pests such as flies, rats, ants, bees, snails, slugs, centipedes and the like.

This afternoon,  when I was working in our garden, I was so mad because there are a lot of slugs eating the leaves and flowers of my plants. I believed you are very familiar about this kind of pest which is a shell-less terrestrial gastropod mollusk. I already saw different kinds and colors of slugs in our garden.

It's Coffee Talk This Time

Have you seen any of the Nespresso commercials of George Clooney? I love watching these so called "What Else" advertisements on Nespresso. This is how the commercial goes,   Mr. Clooney  went inside the Nespresso shop. That time,  two lovely ladies where also sitting inside talking about coffee and espresso and describing it as dark, intense, balance, delicate, rich, very rich, smooth, mysterious, strong character,  deep and sensual and most of all delicious after taste. Sounds good indeed! George Clooney was listening to them during this commercial and later came closer to them and asked "Which one of that espresso? mine? I guess that is how he said it and probably he is thinking that the ladies are also describing about a certain man in their conversation. That was really a good one!


I just find the commercial romantic and quite interesting. I also love the music played entitled "the Boutique". I believed "What Else" is the first Nespresso commercial of George Clooney. Am I right folks? I know he still have other commercials from Nespresso and I always love watching it. Besides, I like George Clooney because I really find him attractive and so handsome. lolz! He is always welcome to join me during my coffee time. haha!

It is always good to talk things with family or friends over a cup of coffee. I guess it is time for me to buy one of the best espresso machines since the weather is getting better now. We can already sit outside our terrace while chitchatting with friends or family. Spring weather is finally here and sitting and relaxing outside while sipping a warm delicious coffee or espresso would be the best thing to do this time.

Since we are talking about coffee and espresso here, I would like to share some of my experiences about this topic. Let me start with it!

How I started to drink coffee and espresso? Since I live in Europe, I am fascinated with these coffee shops you  find everywhere even in  small towns  or huge cities. Everywhere I go from Rome to Paris, Prague, Amsterdam, Zagreb, Luxembourg, Berlin, Munich, Salzburg, Montenegro, Albania and anywhere else in Europe, coffee shops are like mushrooms you find everywhere. I always ended up going to one everytime I travel.

During my first visit in Zurich, Switzerland last December 2010, my head was pounding with pain due to migraine attack. I remembered what my friend told me to try espresso to get rid of the pain. I am honestly telling you guys, it worked. From that time, everytime my migraine attacks  me,  I ended up making a very strong coffee since I still don't have an espresso machine.

I guess it is a perfect  time to decide in  buying  one. This morning when I opened my email, I found a Nespresso machine which is on sale. You can avail of discounts from 70-100 Euros depending on the machine you want to buy. I believed this is already a big savings. I also found cheap Nespresso machines in this site, www.nespresso-us.com. Their stylish and compact Essenza is currently on sale. I have to ask hubby first before I buy this. I believed he will love it too because he is also a coffee-lover.

See you later folks. It's coffee break now!

Can't Wait for Spring Time!

Winter go away! I don't really hate winter but I can't  wait for spring to come! There are a lot of plans this winter season and one of it is to travel. I am thinking of making it different this time, maybe to go camping. This is also the reason why I need Camping Equipment . I still don't have one and I want to buy some when the plan of camping somewhere will materialize. For now, I am hoping for better weather and  when the weather gets friendlier,  it is the sign that spring is coming soon!

Time To Clean-Up

Happy New Year again!  Holiday season is over! I hope everyone had a great one. Yes, I did and  I am thankful about it.

Now is the time to slowly clean-up for  our Christmas decors.  I have a lot to  clean-up and I hope to finish it  all this coming week. I need to put everything  in their old containers and boxes. I cannot use rope and stanchion in binding the boxes since it has another purpose.

There are also another things that I need to clean-up in the house. Our guest room need  one. I have all the stuffs lying there especially the ones  that will be placed in my balikbayan box.  This is also another thing that I need to finish this week.

Cleaning up is always part of our daily lives but sometimes we are just too busy not to finish everything especially when there are more important chores or tasks to do.

Are you done with clean-up?  Not me! Have a wonderful week ahead!

My Sort of Entertainment and Relaxation

Everyone needs to unwind and relax from time to time. This is true especially if you work 8 hours or more in a day and 5-days a week. To forget your daily work routine, some might be going for a weekend trip, a night in a bar talking with friends while sitting on  comfortable  bar stools. Some would love to simply stay at home and watch Television or spend the weekend with the whole family. Others might go for a dine-out. Whatever it is, all of us simply need a form of relaxation and entertainment.

If you have to ask me what I do during my free time? I also have a sort of entertainment and relaxation. I don't have a full time job but being a blogger and freelancer, I also need a time to deviate myself away in front of my computer and from  daily household chores. Anyway, I love sitting on my swiveled chair while in front of my pc while browsing online.

A bar restaurant where we go for dine-out sometimes.
Last Saturday, my friend called me if I want to go with her in a bar restaurant. Actually she has been inviting me since two weeks ago. She mentioned that this place is new and she just wants me to go with her and some friends so that we can unwind for awhile. That is quite a good idea besides I seldom go in places like that.  I am also curious on how it looks inside, the arrangement they have, the entertainment they offer, the kind of drinks and beverages they have for customers and also the furniture they use such as tables and chairs or how their bar lounge look like. Sad to say, we did not made it because it was snowing continuously that Saturday night. I don't want to drive without having winter tires yet in my car. Oh well, we can probably plan it again anytime soon. Spending time with friends can be fun and relaxing too!

Shopping is entertainment. Anyone who disagrees with this? I believed not the ladies out there! I heard a lot from my friends that if they get bored, they go shopping. Many of my friends agreed that their boredom is gone after they go shopping. This is true especially  if they got what they want after shopping. Right ladies? This works for me too! Gallivanting in a mall is sometimes a good way of entertainment  especially for most ladies out there.

Going to a short or long trips- This is one of the best entertainment for me. I simply love to travel and it is really one of my passions. I am still counting for many places to see.

Watching television or movie is also one of my fave things to do. Dining-out with family or friends is also a good way  to unwind.

There are still other forms of relaxation on entertainment. Whatever things that make you happy as long as it is right, I would say, go for it!
