Groupon Goods Are Awesome Cheap!

I have been compensated for this post with either a sample product and/or payment. All opinions are mine.

Hello folks! I am back from outer space! Oh well, not really! How are you doing  out there? I hope everyone is great with perfect health  and body! I wish to give you more updates  but for the past days there are a lot of home chores that  I need to finish before going back to work. I keep on hoping and praying for my full recovery and glad to know about what the doctor said yesterday.  Hopefully in a week, I can already go back to my normal routine like going to work. I just miss  my colleagues and the fun that I have with them everyday. So please Lord, heal me fully so soon!

Cheap Shopping for Electronics at Groupon

 I have been compensated of this post with either a sample product and/or payment. All opinions are mine.

The sun is shining brightly outside. It is such a beautiful day! It seems like a perfect day to go somewhere, maybe window shopping or strolling with friends in the city. I even got an invitation from a friend today to have lunch with her. Sad to say, I cannot go  since I am not really feeling well for almost a week now. I hope and pray that I will be feeling perfectly good again and back to my normal health.

 Good thing  to know, life is never boring now especially with the advent of modern technology like computers and internet. One thing you can do is browse online and go shopping. This is what I am doing the past days, window shopping at home. I actually need a new laptop. My favorite laptop broke down anymore when I updated it to Windows 10. According to my colleague, it is not really advisable to do an update or upgrade to your laptop. Whatever system it came, let it be. I regret it when I updated it, when in fact, it is still working good.

Anyway, I am still thankful because there are a lot of online shopping stores that offers huge discounts on many products. I also found out that Groupon Goods are simply awesome! While searching for a laptop in their site, I found out that most or maybe all of their products in this electronic category  offer huge discounts.  That would mean a lot of savings for a  cheap shopper like me. Their laptop deals are enormous that I am now  confuse of what laptop to buy. lol..  I still have time to decide. The good thing is, I can shop at the comfort of my home and even have a lot of choices at Groupon.

I am loving this site especially that you don't need to pay for a  membership which means additional savings for our wallet.  Fellow shopaholic, what are you waiting for! Enjoy shopping to us!

We Are Ready for Winter, Are You?

I was talking with a friend during our trip to Czech Republic yesterday about the earliest snow I experienced since I live in Europe. I told her that the earliest snow I experienced  in this continent  was last 2012.  The  snow started to fall on  October 28 last year. This year,  the snow came quite later. The first snow fall happenned last November 26  in our area but  it did not lasted for so long.

Our wood pellet oven.
I am happy to say that we are ready for winter. The winter tires in our two cars are already installed. We already ordered 4 pallets of wood pellets for our pellet stove. This is already too much for this winter but we are making it sure that we have enough supplies for our heating furnace. Our wood pellet stove is running 24 hours a day since November. With this very cold winter season in Europe, it is very important that our home is keep warm and comfortable all day long. We are also using electric heaters but we only turn it on when the temperature gets really very cold.

Before winter comes, homeowners must be aware to check their heating system. Some are only checking it at the time they needed it. This is the time when the weather turns cold and they need to turn-on their heaters. For some who don't have a problem with their heaters during the past winters, that is fine but for some who are having frequent problems with it, they must see to it that it is being check before winter comes.

I suggest you take a look at this very interesting page,  HomeServe USA Facebook, as they are always sharing updates and topics about Home Heating Preparedness, Home Tips and most especially topics about electrical, plumbing and HVAC solutions. You can also visit their website for more information especially about  their  services.

I learn a lot of things while browsing their posts  in their facebook page. You will  surely know a lot  with regards to home tips  and guides. I bookmarked their page for  reference in the future.

Career in Health Care Industry

Are you still thinking which career to pursue in your life? Are you interested in a profession that is focus on the quality of life of individuals, families and communities? The right profession for you might be in the health care industry. Why not?

Our family is not really in the medical field. I only have three sisters who decided to engage in medical and health field. Two are already registered nurses in the United States of America and the other one is graduating this coming March of this year. I am glad that my sisters chose that profession because they can help improve people's lives by providing health care services.

I am convincing my two RN sisters to further their careers and take master’s degree in nursing courses. Raquel who is in Las Vegas, is planning to take online courses that is related to her career. Rose on the other hand is happy since she will be having her interview this coming Monday. She worked before as a nurse in the hospital back home in the Philippines. She just joined her husband in the US and is currently looking for job in the health care industry. Regz who will be graduating soon is planning to migrate in Australia and also want to work as a nurse.

With the changing environment of health care industry, every nurse are obliged to attend trainings, courses and seminars. It might be in the four corners of a room or by doing it online. Being a nurse is challenging. You have to deal with people in all walks of life, helping them attain a better and quality life. You help people prevent illness and injury. Nurses alleviate the suffering of individuals through diagnosis and treatment.

This is only one of the professions that you can truly be proud of and I am proud of my three sisters who chose to engage in nursing  career. Good luck to you all!

Shifting To Health and Medical Jobs

Shifting job! I guess this is what I really need in order to find a quick job in Europe. I actually applied for a medical clerk job last year. I received a letter that I am qualified but the job position was cancelled. I am a banker by profession but it is quite difficult to find a job especially here in Germany because my diploma and job experiences are not recognized at all. I guess I am taking one of these days either a medical management course or a medical teaching course. I still have to decide on it.

Health and medical jobs are in need now in many countries in Europe. I have some former classmates who took up Nursing courses during college days and many of them are currently working in United Kingdom particularly in London, Ireland and Scotland. After completing and passing all the required documents, paper works and undergoing consultant interview course, they successfully made it to UK. I am quite happy for them.

If I have the chance, I wish to teach the teacher course for this field. I was actually telling hubby the past week, that I might shift to health and medical job after I will take a long vacation in my home country.

If you are a medical professional and wishes to work and apply for a job especially in the UK, you can actually find a lot of sites to help and guide you during the process. Sometimes you will take special trainings and courses so that your profession will be acknowledged. For those who are still planning to shift to medical jobs like me, good luck to all of us!

Living a Simple and Stress-free Life

What can you say about the title of my post here? I believed millions of people would love to live a stress-free life. The question is? Can you live a simple life? For me, this is the key to be truly happy, living a simple but happy and contented life. Most of the times stress is caused by having complicated life. Stress is also caused by financial problems like having the inability to pay your debt. I heard a lot of people who are earning enough salary but still cannot manage their financial aspects in life. More on that, they don't have enough knowledge on how to rightfully manage and budget their finances. This is quite simple. Don't spend more than you earn. Lastly, in order to avoid stress, live simply and have contentment in life. Peace!

Help Save The Earth

I believed that we are very aware of what is happening to Our Mother Earth right now. We always hear over the news in radio, television, newspapers and most of all over the internet about the different calamities and catastrophes that is happening around the world. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan last March 2011, the mudslide in some parts of Philippines last December 2011, the flood in Australia and other parts of the world, these are only some of the natural calamities that is hitting the world now.

Due to this, we need to slowly think and learn how to save our Mother Nature. That is also the reason why every year we are celebrating Earth Day every month of April. As inhabitants of this earth, we can help in our own little and simple ways on how to conserve and take care of Mother Earth. By not wasting water, turning on the lights when not needed, walk some meters instead of driving a car, are only some of the little things that we can do to help save our earth. In terms of technology, we can also use energy-saving appliances or equipments.

It is still not too late! We need to think of the future generations. By taking care of our earth, for sure it is and will always be a wonderful place to live-in. I encourage everyone to join our Earth Day celebration on April 22, 2012. Thanks everyone!

Flower Markets Worth To Visit in Europe

If you love flowers just like me, for sure you also love visiting flower markets. Here are some of the most interesting flower markets to visit in Europe.

1) Neuenheimer Marketplatz in Heidelberg, Germany

This flower market is nestled in Neuenheim, just across the river from Heidelberg. The market is only open twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Visitors will want to be at the market soon after it opens at 7 a.m., to get the best selection of flowers. Cameras and picture taking is encouraged, as growers display their wares with beaming pride.

2) Columbia Road Flower Market in London

Columbia Road is a world famous flower market in London. It is open just one day a week, on Sunday mornings and early afternoons. The narrow Victorian street becomes a bustling market of traders, with the shops selling homewares, garden candles and unique, quirky handmade welcome mats. Visitors will want to meander from cart to cart and seek the best deals, before deciding upon final purchases. Be sure to bring a camera along, to capture the dazzling beauty of the fresh flowers that line the street.

3) The Floating Flower Market in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is home to the only floating flower market in the world! It ranks amongst the top must see markets in all of Europe. The floating flower market is located on the Singel Canal and stalls are located in houseboats along the canal. Known for the wide variety of bulbs, the floating market offers tulips and a plethora of other bulbs. The market ships all over the world, allowing visitors to enjoy the beauty all year round.

4) Flower Market on the Seine in Paris

The oldest flower market in Paris is located in the shadow of Notre Dame and Saint Chappelle, the famous stained glass chapel. The market lines both sides of the narrow street, and offers a profuse selection of cut flowers, greenery, and potted plants. The ornamental plants hang from baskets and are a blaze of colors and textured foliage. There is no lack of flowers and plant material that can be used to enhance a patio, balcony, or side garden. Cut flowers can be taken back to a place of lodging and enjoyed for the duration of the stay in Paris.

Our backyard also looks like a flower market. My friend who visited us last month told me that our garden is like a flower shop because you can see a lot of flowers around, flower pots and garden decors are scattered everywhere. I am glad that the single garden door we ordered last time was already delivered. I am hoping for our garden terrace to be finished soon.

Early Retirement

I once heard these words from a friend, "I have a lot of stress in the workplace. I wish I am a retiree now." I believed her! Sometimes there are just a lot of stress in the work. Sometimes it can be a challenge but sometimes it is very depressing. Hubby's situation is different. He is a very hardworking and diligent person and he always wanted to work until his retirement age. Since the last two accidents he had, in which one was an accident at the work place, he always complains now of pains in his body especially the ones affected by these accidents. He wishes for a disability appeal in some years. That is also the reason why he called the AG Metal and insurance company two weeks ago for some inquiries about early retirement.

I also availed of a lump sump early retirement after working for almost nine years in one of the top- 3 bank in the Philippines. I am quite happy with my decision but honestly I miss my job as a banker. That is life and sometimes we have to face it! Have a lovely week ahead!

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;


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

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.

Job Opportunity

I just received this afternoon a call saying if I want to work in an International Company in Munich.  Of course, why not?  The recruiter said that they saw my resume in She even mentioned if I want to work in Munich. I  told her that it doesn't matter where in Germany, even in Europe or US as long I have a job. But still, I will still consider the salary. If it is  more than enough to support my living and everything  including the apartment and cost of living, I will surely grab the job.

I wish I  have a lot of  Computer Skills  so that I can work in an IT company. I am a banker and accountant by profession. I also applied  some knowledge of computer at the bank I work before.  I am still not losing hope that one day I can learn  more about  computers and its field of study. I believed I am not too old to learn. Besides,  learning knows no age limit at all!

I hope and pray that I can make it  with this job this time. If not, I will be forced  to  job in other countries. I just don't want to waste my time, talents, ability, education and work experiences.. I can't really make it, I would like to concentrate more of working at home. There are a lot of companies who are hiring work at home jobs as well. I am crossing my fingers to land a good job in the nearest future.

Black Women are also Beautiful!
