Wrangler Ride 'em Cowboy

Old West. Cowboys. Rodeos.
All these turns up into my mind whenever I get to see Wrangler jeans and shirts on the store. I could somehow sense the thrill and excitement of watching a live Rodeo event! It's like going back in time and experiencing the western culture for real. 

If I have to watch a rodeo event, I'll be watching it live at the stadium than on television. Feeling the intensity and the crowd atmosphere is a fantastic experience one should not miss. You would definitely enjoy watching the bull riding, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and barrel racing competition.

For Rodeo fans and enthusiasts, it’s another great year to look forward to. Cowboys and cowgirls from around the world will come together to compete at the Thomas & Mack Center at Las Vegas, Nevada. For tourist having a Las Vegas vacation on December, better make the most out of it and get your rodeo event tickets now. 

I’m definitely sure that this Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is a must-see rodeo event. For when it comes to Las Vegas entertainment, rodeo tickets are hot commodities. It’s always necessary to book and grab your Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Tickets as early as possible. This way, you can be sure of getting the best section and seats at the event.

Century Tuna Moment With Derek Ramsay

Last Sunday, thousands of runners flock at Bonifacio Global City for the Century Tuna Superbods Runrio 2010. It's the start of the first leg.So happy to be at the event, though I did not take part in the Run!

Being one of the 10 winners, I came to claim the prize that I won from the "Write Derek and Win Promo." I only knew about the promo on its last day, and I hurriedly write and submit my entry before rushing out to the mall with my family. More than 90 entries were judged by Derek Ramsay himself and the promo organizers, luckily, my entry won!

Actually, I'm not so fond of local celebrities, as much as I don't scream at the sight of such. Still, being surrounded by people who adores Derek makes me feel thrilled too! I even thought of just claiming my prize at the Century Tuna office and ditch the photo-opportunity (which is part of the prize). Good thing, I did not miss this... which makes me say that I simply adore Derek's athletic built and wow, he smells really good!  Smiles.

Car Safety First

While on the road, it is always important to drive carefully, follow the rules, avoid accidents, practice defensive driving and stay safe. It is equally good to know about the basic and not-so-basic concepts of car maintenance, and how to handle most common car problems.

Car owners always want the best for their cars and keep it in tiptop condition. But for some, fixing and maintaining their vehicles can be a tedious job. For repair needs, people usually consider going to repair shops and mechanics recommended by family members or friends.

Auto repair expenses could be overwhelming, but highly important. If you're within Dallas, Taxas you'll find a solution already at Dallas auto repair. It's a helpful online resource of the most comprehensive auto shop directory within the area and expert advices from certified mechanics There are also huge amount of information about car repairs and maintenance. You can get a repair estimate and find a reliable mechanic to do that brake job replacement for you.

Keep your vehicles in its best condition. Regular car check-up and preventive maintenance reduces the chance of getting a breakdown. Any unusual things should not be neglected, but should be taken care f immediately.

So while riding that Chevrolet Silverado (or if you're planning to buy one) or any other car, make sure to consider your safety among other things. Don't let your vehicle endanger your life or anyone else's.

Stay safe at all times, especially while on the road.

Buy Gold and Invest

The glitter of gold has caught the people's eyes.

People from every class wear gold jewelry in different forms. Wearing elegant pieces of gold earrings, gold necklaces or bracelets creates a marvelous impact that is truly inviting.

Women are passionate for buying gold jewelries. These pure gold jewelries are usually kept and worn during special occasions, and are passed on as heirlooms. Men, on the other hand, buy gold pieces for the woman in their lives, yet most of the time for investment purposes.

With the brewing financial crisis and weakening currencies, gold makes a perfect protection. Some are now buying gold as an investment. Anyone whose considering to strengthen their investment portfolio should take buying gold coins or gold bullions seriously.

At Goldline International, you can buy gold coins online, get gold investment information, and add gold in your Individual Retirement Account. The company is one of the most trusted gold dealers in the United States. But, before venturing into any investment, research is a must. The Free Investor Kit from Goldline can be helpful too.

Gold prices continues to be on the rise. It never loses its value.

Paradise Dream at The LightHouse Marina Resort

How wonderful it is to embark on a rewarding journey of heightened leisure and get-away, to take pleasure in the elegant resort service and be mesmerized by the stunning views of Subic Bay. How great it is to indulge in life's easy pleasures... to feel the atmosphere of serenity and the sweetness of nature’s bliss. 

lighthouse marina resort, subic resort
I dream of The Lighthouse Resort Hotel experience.

I want to dive in an ocean of comfort, to feel the glittering sun on my skin and be mesmerized at the fantastic scenery of the sunset. I desire to feel the thrill of taking a glimpse at the lighthouse. I will walk on its pristine sandy beach and feel the sea breeze as it touches my skin. I will savor and enjoy its beauty and grandeur.

My heart yearns to experience their elegant and outstanding suites. I will relax and be comfortable in any of its Aqua rooms - Aqua Room, Terrace, Aqua Veranda and Aqua Spa Suite - with its contemporary oceanic motif and modern sophistication. Here in this place, my stress will be freed, as my tired mind and body will be soothed by The Lighthouse Marina signature in-room massage.

Here, my family can enjoy endless possibilities - dining at the Sands Restaurant, karaoke the 720 Bar, swimming and water sports activities. A sunset cruise would be the grandest treat for my family.

As I look at the magnificent lighthouse as it towers above the scenic view of land and sea from far sight, I will feel its magic as it endure the powers of nature. I will fall in love in its beaming bright light as it brings hope, direction, and sense of safety throughout the night. A magnificent scene that awaits those who want to be illuminated by its beauty. The sight itself is truly rewarding. All these will bring forth grandeur to my hotel experience.

A luxurious and elegant hotel that stands tall and a lighthouse that beams brightly is truly an ultimate haven of retreat. Here, I will capture and cherish all these moments for a lifetime.

My dreams are not mere fantasy; everything is just within my reach. It is a place not too far away. A perfect location, an ideal place located in the heart of Subic Free post just a few hours away from Manila. It is indeed a place of modern accommodations, blissful indulgences and thrilling activities, amidst natures’ finest.

Time will come that I will not dream. Yes, I am looking forward to the day where I can Sail, Cruise, Drift and Dock, and see glimpse of paradise at the Lighthouse. A perfect escapade that my family can enjoy only at The Lighthouse Resort Hotel… a lap of luxury, a paradise found.

Best Friends in Total Girl Magazine

Total Girl Magazine February 2010 issue features my daughter, Skylah and my little sister, Jalysa, in their Totally True section - best friend edition.

In this page, Skylah and Jalysa shares what makes them best friends, the fun things they enjoy doing together, their bonding moments and the perks of having a "bestie" in the family. Having a true bestfriend is indeed important and I am glad that they've found friendship in each other. As Jalysa says, "I know she'll always be there for me the same way that I'll always be here for her. We're growing up together, and I'll surely be there to guide her through her life."

Still, I am proud and happy that she had experienced being part of this magazine. The only thing that matters to me is that she enjoyed the photoshoot and felt more happier as she saw the magazine.

    After our family's early summer vacation at Batangas and after winning as Mommy Blogger at Kidsandbabies, I am so glad to be given another award. This time the prestigious Filipino Blog of the Week award came from The Composed Gentleman.

    I did not have much time to campaign and seek help from friends, still, I'm thankful for this award. Glad that there are people who wishes me well and voted for me silently.

    High-Speed and Reliable Internet Access

    Urban living have given me with the best that life has to offer - conveniences of modern lifestyle, easy access to places, proximity to everywhere, and high speed Internet connection. Born as a city dweller, I've been accustomed to the way city life is. Rural/country living - with its relaxingly clean air, peaceful surroundings, wide open spaces, scenic routes, and more - seems to be the furthest thing on my mind; still, I could not help but dream of experiencing the kind of life there is.

    There is indeed beauty in rural living. Still, people from the rural communities continue to flock in the city for a variety of reasons. Most rural communities also have to deal with slow dial-up Internet connection, unreliable access and expensive installations; and some areas have also been left out.

    This is interesting news especially for rural dwellers. A new satellite service powers up rural areas which reaches virtually everywhere in continental US. Such greatness of technological developments where everyone will be able to receive connections through satellite. Americans no longer need to suffer slow dial-up Internet access. With wild blue internet technology, one can get connected the fastest way they've wanted to. This service is 30x faster than dial-up with a download speed of up to 1.5Mbps!

    Both rural and urban living truly provides a variety of differences and opportunities, advantages and disadvantages to boot. But beyond these, anyone can enjoy high-speed Internet access no matter where they are. And with the work that I have, I can almost say that I can live anywhere, as long as I have the fastest and most reliable Internet service.

    The Princess and The Frog Advance Screening

    “You can’t just wish on a star.” 

    Princess and the Frog advance screening movie tickets, SM Megamall
    With 4 tickets at hand, we get to watch the advance screening of The Princess and The Frog at SM Megamall last January 31. My little sister and my daughter enjoyed the movie and the treats as well. We also got to take home freebies from the sponsors.

    Princess and the Frog advance screening, SM Megamall

    Princess and the Frog advance screening, SM Megamall

    The Princess and The Frog is a classic Disney movie, with a modern twist on a classic tale, set in the great city of New Orleans. It features a beautiful girl named Tiana, a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure to be human again. With the help of a trumpet-playing alligator, Louis, a Cajun firefly who's in-love with the evening star, Ray, and a mystical, elderly blind lady, Mama Odie, Prince Naveen and Tiana race to break the spell and fulfill their dreams.

    Tiana is a waitress with dreams of running her own restaurant. She wishes on a star but as her father advises her, "that old star can take you only part of the way. You have to help it out with hard work of your own." She finds love not on wizards nor magic, but with determination and effort.

    This movie embraces and handles diversity in a natural way. I love how it leaves a message that wishing upon a star might help you express your dreams, but hard work, perseverance and character will make them come true.

    Princess and the Frog advance screening, SM Megamall

    The Princess and The Frog movie is now showing in the Philippines. Get to watch Disney's first 2D animated tale with the whole family.

    These tickets are the ones I've won from promo. for answering the question "Who's one woman I really look up to and why?" I gave away the premier tickets I've won from SM Cinema to a mommy-friend.  And here's my winning answer:

     "Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing." These words keeps me moving and lifts my spirit. Because of this, I learned to be thankful each day, no matter how small or grand the blessings would be. It makes me see things in a different perspective - from valuing the woman with the greatest influence on my life to realizing that I too can learn from everyone I get to meet each day. Indeed, it is only when I realize the value of the simple things in life that I can be at my happiest. Mother Theresa, with her life and her simple yet powerful quote, is indeed the woman I admire most!
