Baby Photos Slideshow

I want to share with you the slideshow photos of my eldest daughter. She was only 5 months old at the time the photos were taken. The photos were taken whilst we were visiting my parents and it was also the first time my parents met their first grand-daughter. It was nice to be able to spend some time with my family back home. All of my relatives paid us a visit and wanted to see my baby. It so happened that I have a cousin that became a professional photographer, so he took very nice photographs of my daughter.

This slideshow is put together by Roxio online . You can also add in music, style, captions and stickers in it. You can even burn them on DVD to share with family and friends. Try it yourself.

Musical Toy

I recently gave a musical toy to my daughter. This musical toy actually belonged to me before I gave it over to my daughter. It has a string and when you pull the string, a nice lullaby song will play. My father bought it for me when I was around 4 years old. I still remember the day when he gave it to me. It was just like yesterday. How time flies so fast.

Actually he brought home two pieces. One was blue color (in the picture) and the other one was yellow color. The music was different. He asked me to choose which one I preferred, so he could buy the one that I liked and return the other one. At that time I really could not choose, since both were so nice. After considering which one to choose for a while (I still remember exactly what I was thinking about at that time) I finally choose the blue one.

When I was a small girl, I did not have many toys, therefore I treasured this one.



My father in law recently underwent a heart bypass surgery, it all went well and now he is recovering. I read somewhere that heart disease is hereditary. Some studies suggest that if there is a family history of heart attacks, it accounts for up to 15 percent of the risk of an individual suffering from a heart attack. People with a positive family history of heart attacks, or have an increased risk for heart disease because of other risk factors, should aggressively modify those risk factors that they can control.

C'elle menstrual stem cells have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into other cell types such as heart muscle, cartilage, nerve and bone stem cells. This translates into the potential for future therapeutic developments to possibly treat major diseases like, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, MS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

I am really glad to hear About the Science, as I can see that the benefits of this research will help to prolong the life of a human being. We really cannot predict the future, but if we can use our menstrual blood as a potential treatment for life-threatening diseases that we might suffer in the future, I really don’t mind investing in C'elle.

If you are interested in this science, you may want to read more about it from the C'elle Client Testimonial.

How to Make Half Boiled Egg

My older daughter loves to eat half boiled egg. Everyday she eats 1 egg.

This is how I make it:

Boil the water in the pan.
After the water boil, put the egg in. Then let it boil for exactly 2 minutes. Remember this egg is cold egg from fridge, if the egg is not cold than only boil for 1 minutes.


Need To Buy A Car

I started driving since I was 18 years old, which is the legal age for obtaining a driving license in my home country. When I arrived in this country I did not obtain a driving license as we only had one car which my husband drives to work leaving me without a vehicle to go anywhere. I got my driving license only recently when I decided to purchase a car to drive my daughter to her kinder-garden. When I purchased the car I made sure I purchased a comprehensive auto insurance.


My Baby Watching TV

This afternoon, when we were all watching TV in the living room, suddenly I heard my baby cried. Quickly, I went upstairs and brought her down. To my surprise I found that my 3-months old baby intently watched TV. Do they really can watch TV? I am wondering.


Music Lessons

I am not blessed with any musical talents although my maternal grandfather was a guitarist in a band in his time and my father also loves to play the violin. I am planning to give both of my daughters the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument when they are old enough. I think next year I will sign up my eldest daughter for her piano lessons.

I heard that Amadeus Home Music School provides quality music lessons, and they can also provide private music lessons at our venue of choice which is in our house. I think this arrangement suites me very well as I can monitor my daughter’s progress in the convenience of my own home.


Hair Loss in Baby

Every time I take my baby out from bed, I always see lots of hair on her pillow. Hair falls out during first few weeks or months is common in babies. What not common is if your baby has circular patches on scalp with redness and scaling, sometimes with little broken-off hairs. If this is happened, you need to see the doctor, because it can be ringworm.

Ringworm, which has nothing at all to do with worms, is a contagious fungal infection of the skin. It can be itchy and unpleasant, but it's not painful or dangerous. When the fungus affects the scalp, the condition is called tinea capitis, and when it affects the body it's tinea corporis.

Ringworm shows up most commonly often in children over the age of 2age 2 and older, but it's possible for babies and adults to get it too.

Awesome Fat Loss Site!

My husband has a problem with his health, he is overweight and this is causing his blood pressure to be on the high side. Although he tried to reduce his weight by exercising daily, somehow he is still unable to reduce his weight. I suspect that it is because his job requires him to entertain customers with good dining therefore causing him to also overeat.

I worked as a marketer before, and I know that as a marketer, sometimes we have to entertain customers. Actually I had to entertain my customers almost everyday of the week. I had to bring them to nice restaurants. It cannot be helped that I had to eat high cholesterol foods and also foods rich in fat. Thus, I can imagine that my husband is also doing the same thing, eating unhealthy food, and food which is rich in cholesterol and fats.

We all know that overweight people are more likely to have high blood pressure. This is a major risk factor for both heart disease and stroke. Beside that they also have very high blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides (blood fats). These can also lead to heart disease. Being overweight can also contribute to chest pains caused by decreased oxygen to the heart. The dangerous part is that they can have sudden death from heart disease or stroke without any signs or symptoms.

Reducing your weight by 5-10 percent can decrease your chances of developing heart disease or having a stroke. You can improve your heart function, blood pressure and your levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides.Now the problem is how to reduce weight. I found a site that gives us a simple diet which is idiot proof. is better than the Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig diet because of its fat burning diet generator and the ultimate diet handbook it comes with.

How refreshing it is to find a diet that will help you lose weight and help you fix chronic illnesses like diabetes, adrenal fatigue, hormonal problems, etc.

If you want to find out more about it, you can go and check it out yourself.



My hubby made this. He got the kit free from one of those printer exhibition that he attended. After done making this, he showed it to me. I told him that it was very easy to make that. Even 5 years old kid also can make it. Hahahahaha!

Have you heard about Black Friday? Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving when major retailers around the country discount products to help kick off the Christmas shopping season. This Black Friday ads are usually kept secret until you receive the circulars in your Thanksgiving Day newspaper. So you can imagine how it looks like on the “D” day. People start queuing up before the store is open.

However, at, they give you the advantage by showing you all of the Black Friday advertisement before anyone else. They also offer direct links to each product so you can purchase the items online on Black Friday without having to stand in line at the store! How convenient!

Furthermore they also offer email alerts. It means that they will email you when new Black Friday advertisements have been posted, so you will be kept updated with the best deals they have at that site.

From the store list, you can select the pdf or zip link to download the Black Friday circular for that particular store. The numbers to the right of the store name is the date when the Black Friday advertisement was posted on the site. If there is no date for the store you are interested in, it means that the Black Friday advertisement has not been posted yet.

So if you plan to buy your beloved one something for this coming festive season, you should bookmark the site or subscribe to their email alerts. You can save a lot of money by doing so.I saw a lot of big stores listed there, although they haven’t put up their advertisements yet. Rather than queuing up, I prefer to shop online.

When I open my laptop this afternoon, I saw 1 grey job in triple P with good price. I refreshed my computer several times, and was thinking to take my night bath. When I was about to get up from my chair, suddenly I saw the grey color become light green. Quickly I reserved the job although I was not sure that I would get it. It happened too many times that by the time I answered the Capcha question, the job was not there anymore. To my delight this time, I managed to get the job.
Anyway, it’s late now. Time to hit my sack. Good Night.


Choose Your Favorite Recipe and Win A Trip To New Orleans

Chef John Currence from Mississippi won the competition at the 2008 Fifth Annual Great American Seafood cook off! He beat out 14 other prestigious chefs from across the nation to be crowned King of American Seafood.

Since the judges already casted their votes, now it’s our turn to cast our votes. Go to, and vote for your favorite recipe. By voting for your favorite recipe you stand a chance to win a "Trip to New Orleans" prize package which also includes two Southwest Airline roundtrip tickets, hotel accommodations, dining experiences and more.
There are 5 recipes there to choose from. As for me, my favorite recipe is Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella by Colorado’s chef, Paul Anders as I love fish. Fish is a source of protein and has a high quantity of good HDL cholesterol. Furthermore, his recipe looks simple enough for me to try. The main ingredient is Colorado Striped Bass, but I can always substitute it with any fresh fish that I can find in the market. I believe that in order to cook nice seafood dishes, we have to make sure that the source of the seafood is known, local and fresh.

This recipe also uses tomatoes, cucumbers, mint, basil, olives, ciabatta bread, crispy eggplant, aged balsamic vinegar and Tuscan olive oil. The most important part of this recipe is to use the freshest, ripest, produce you can find at your local farmer’s market or from your backyard garden. It is a simple dish using excellent ingredients. Reading the recipe itself has already made my mouth watery.

How Long Does It Take?

After giving birth how long does it take for your body to back to normal? Normally it will take about 1 year. Although some cases there are some women that are lucky enough to get her body back within 1 or 2 months. After all, your body spent nine or so months stretching and adjusting in order for your baby to develop and be born, so don't expect it to bounce back a few weeks after giving birth.

Also keep in mind that your shape won't be exactly as it was before. Your hips will slightly rounder, your waist slightly thicker, and your tummy softer and you can see some stretch marks there. But all these are small price to pay for the wonderful new person in your life.

Honey For Coughing

An FDA advisory board recently recommended that over-the-counter cough and cold medicines not be given to children under 6 years of age because of a lack of effectiveness and potential for side effects.

Recently research found out that honey may work just as well or better that coughing medicine. However, make sure that you don’t give honey to less than 1 year old baby because can cause botulism.

I haven’t tried honey yet, so I can’t guarantee of the result.


Leather Furniture Cover

Recently I bought a sofa to replace my old one since as it was already worn out. The new sofa covers are made of suede and I have 2 small children, which makes it’s a good idea to cover my new sofa with a protective cover in case they spill something on it. has developed a unique, breakthrough concept in covering Leather Furniture. There's no other loose Covers for Leather Furniture product currently on the market that is especially suited to re-cover and update leather furniture with exciting new looks.

Below is the press release:

Leather furniture has dominated the new-furniture market now for the last eight years, accounting for up to 60% of sales. Understandably, some of it is starting to look a little worn and tired. The upshot is that householders put up with the worn-out look - or throw their suites onto landfill. Now, thanks to, an ingenious new alternative is released this week - chenille loose covers that offer a designer look and a sumptuous feel.

Loose covers for leather furniture have always been notoriously difficult to fit - most fabrics slip too much once fitted. However, after extensive research, has located a new range of wonderful chenille fabrics. Their weight and texture make them highly suitable for covering leather sofas and chairs.

Research has shown that people might want to change their leather furniture for a number of reasons. They believe that, apart from looking worn over time, it becomes sticky in the summer and cold in the winter. Perhaps they simply want to breathe new life into their slightly tired-looking sofa. Or they might just fancy a new look.

Whatever the motive, thanks to, the result is a complete transformation of leather furniture and a cutting-edge look at a fraction of the price of buying a new suite.

“This is really a unique, groundbreaking product,” says Online Media Manager Simon Blackburn. “Not only can it transform old or damaged leather suites, but it can protect it, too - from pets, children, wine and food. Even better, we’ve made it really easy to buy it online, with a simple, five-stage buying process that you can see on our website.”

That process simply involves choosing from a wide range of new, fashionable fabrics online, with the ability to zoom in to see detail or even order a swatch.

Householders can then order online and leave only a small deposit. Next, they send some photographs of their furniture for visual reference ( can even supply a free camera), and receive a personalised measurement chart, made specially for their furniture. From there, they send back the dimensions and wait for their beautiful covers to arrive. Simple Cushion Covers and Throws can be bought direct online.

“It’s a very 21st-century solution to an old problem,” says Simon. “The half-leather, half-fabric style is very trendy, very ‘designer’, at the minute, so this is a highly cost-effective way of achieving that look.”



Pay Pal limited my account. They said somebody was trying to access my account. Limited account means that I can not send money or withdraw money, but I still able to receive money. Yah sure! What is the use of receiving money if I can not withdraw.

In order for Pay Pal to restore my account, I need to change my password and verify my address by sending them my utility bill which contain my name (must match with my name in PayPal account) and my address (again, must match with the address in my PayPal account).

The problem is all the utility bills are using my husband’s name and not my name. However, they accept Bank Account statement. After I sent my bank account statement, they finally restore my PayPal account. Immediately after that, I withdraw all my money from my PayPal account.

PIN Number Reversal

With recession coming on our way, I am pretty sure that criminal rate will be increasing. Try to be careful when you are outside. Do not wear any excessive jewelry or bring too much cash.

I am not sure whether this is true or not, but worth to try if you are in below situation.

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATMmachine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in reverse. For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card youplaced in themachine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown toThe robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you.This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it isseldom used because people don't know it exists.


How To Detect A 2-Way Mirror

When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc. How many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror( i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them).

There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it.

So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?

Just conduct this simple test:

Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.

However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, FOR IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!

So remember , every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do, and it might save you from getting "visually raped" !

This is a really good thing to do. The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. As a two-way mirror, the silver is on the surface.

Keep it in mind!


Address Labels

Every month, I have to post my check to pay my credit card bills, phone bills, utility bills, etc. I think I sent out about close to 10 mails every month. The part that I don’t like is to write the return address. Although the task seems quite simple, it can be pretty challenging when we have to send quite a number of letters. Having to write the return address on every letter bored me, not to mention time consuming.

Beside that, festive seasons are coming soon. Although I can just send e-card by email to some of my friends, but I still have to send card conventional way to my family. I also found that I prefer to receive greeting card by mail rather than by e-mail. So, I guess, everybody also feels the same.

I am thinking to buy Address Labels, so I can just stick the label on the envelope. I found a good bargain at VistaPrint. Their Address Labels are starting at $7.99 for 140 piece. If you want to get 50% discount off your address label purchase, make sure you type the code: Labels50

Hair Loss

My hair is starting to drop. So is my baby’s hair. She is 3 months soon, so I think it’s about the time to have this hair drop period because of the hormone change. I am not worried because it will grow again eventually.

When I got my first daughter, my mom already warned me that my hair and my baby’s hair will drop-off. However, I was still horrified when I found how bad it was. I have to cut my hair short, so it will easier to wash and care.

Now, since this is my second experience, I am quite prepared. I think it’s time to cut my hair short again.

We are planning to move to different house. We have already found the perfect house for us and now in the process of negotiating the price. At the same time, we also put our current house in the market. Hopefully, we can find a buyer soon.

The house that we are about to buy is not a new house. It’s about 20 years old house. Thus, probably we need to fix things around, such as painting the wall, fix the roof, and so on. We definitely need a handyman service.

When I am trying to look around a handyman service online, I come across this Chicago handyman site. If you are in Chicago area, you can use this service if you need a handyman in Chicago area.


Change Trade

Some men think that our work as a stay at home housewife is easy. Think that we can sleep or relax all day at home. That we have all the time to do whatever we want to do. A lot of people look down at our job as a homemaker. Even women sometimes feel ashame to admit that she is a homemaker.

I received this email from hubby, and I love it:

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home. He wanted her to see what she went through so he prayed: "Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want Her to know what I go through, so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen. God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.

The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went grocery shopping, then drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills and balanced the e check book. He cleaned the cat's litter box and Bathed the dog. Then it was already 1 P.M.and he hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them on the way home. Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organised to do their homework, then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing. At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad, and snapped fresh beans for supper. After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. At 9 P.M.he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love which he managed to get through without complaint.

The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said, "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back." The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were.
You'll just have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last night."


Cartier Watches

The first time I had a watch was when I was 12 years old. My parent bought me a simple Seiko as a birthday present. I used that watch for 10 years, before I changed to another watch. Same brand but different model.

My first luxury watch was Cartier. I got it as a present from my parent when I was graduated from University.

Do you know the history of Cartier watch began in 1904? Alberto Santos-Dumont, an early pioneer of aviation, asked Cartier to design a watch that could be useful during his flights. Since pocket watches were not suitable, Louis Cartier created the Santos wrist-watch, which was also the first wrist-watch made for men. Santos first went on sale in 1911. Thus, Cartier established his first production of wrist-watches.

If you are interested in buying one of the Cartier watches collections, you can buy it online in They have nice selection of luxury watch. Beside Cartier watch, they also carry other branded watch, such as Bvlgary, Gucci, Omega, Patek Philippe, etc. You can find a good deal there, and they will ship it for free to your doorstep. They even accept PayPal as one of payment choice.

At this moment, they have one-of-a-kind promotion, which entitles you to a free or 80% off watch with selected purchases!


Doll House

This is my first daughter playing with her doll house. She can play alone with her toys for hours. However, she makes sure that she still sees me around. I am glad that she can play by herself, so I can work in peace.

About Dogs

I don’t like dog, but we have 2 dogs at home. A rotweiler and a Labrador. Normally the one that feed and clean them was my father in law. However, since he is currently have to stay in the hospital for his bypass surgery, I have to take over his job to take care these 2 dogs.

The feeding part is OK, but I don’t like the cleaning part. Sometimes, I am wondering whether we can toilet train them. My research in the net shows that it is possible, but we have to start training them since they are puppies.


Diet Pills

Although I have no problem with my weight, I can understand the difficulty some people have in reducing their weight. Sometimes only diet and daily exercise are not enough. Some people also take pills diet to achieve their target weight. It is advisable though, that before taking any diet pills, you should first consult with your doctor about it.

However, if you decide to take diet pills, take in consideration the following tips:

• Due to their ingredients diet pills can help about one third of obese patients with modest weight loss and can assist in long term maintenance of weight loss.
• Pills can reduce the body’s absorption of fat from foods, thereby reducing weight and cholesterol.
• Some pills work by blocking the action of lipase, an enzyme in the intestine that breaks down fat.
• Diet pills containing Sibutramine keep two important brain chemicals (serotonin and norepinephrine) in balance, which helps to increase metabolism. It causes a feeling of fullness and increases energy levels, but its long term effects are not well known.

• The ingredients of diet pills that claim to alter your metabolism can alter your heart rate and are unsafe for any person. So look up the exact ingredients before using!
• Pregnant women or while breastfeeding should definitely not use weight loss supplements!
• Taken for a longer period of time some negative effects can result from using diet pills with Ephedra. Some of these are heightened blood pressure, insomnia and nausea. Kava kava is also a commonly used ingredient. It causes kidney damage sustained through the prolonged use of medication that contains it.
• Your body needs a wide variety of vitamins and minerals for optimum health. As slimming pills have suppressed your appetite you probably won’t eat enough and you might not get them.

I have 2 types of diary. One is like a daily journal. To record of what is happening everyday. It’s very simple one with bullet points. Just to remind me what had happened that day. The other diary is for business with to do list, follow up list, dates and some notes.

Anyway, this year, I combine them into one diary so it’s easier for me to carry around. Normally, I will spend about 30 minutes to work on my diary. To make note what had happened the previous day, list what I have to do, and scrap the one that I have done. By being organized I feel that I have control of my job and my life. It’s a nice feeling.


My Look

I happen to have a “mean” look. So if I don’t smile, and show my “friendly” look, most people will think that I am unapproachable. If I am interested in a certain person, I will normally smile at him to let him know that I am approachable. Then, when he starts talking to me, I will just flirt with the look in my eyes and words to achieve "Victory Hair" (“Victory Hair” is a situation when a man and a woman need to re-style their hair with VO5 because of the “activity” they just did, and no… I am not talking about sporting “activity”)

If he does not make the first move to talk with me, then I will think of something to open the conversation. Normally, after a few drinks and some meaningful conversation, they will admit that they didn’t make the first move to talk to me because they are afraid of my “mean” look. Only after I smile and talk to them, then they know that I am a nice girl and easy to talk to.

Anyway, if you like to flirt, why don’t you try an online game called Extreme Style by VO5: Ultimate Flirting Championship (located at You can practice your flirting skill there. I like this game because you can flirt around and have fun at the same time without worry about what other people think of you (in the real world you cannot flirt too much because people will think that you are cheap). Give it a try!

Credit Card Spam?

The other day, somebody called my hubby asked him whether he wanted to open supplimentary credit card for me. Since it's free for life, he thought why not? However since he is busy, he gave her my phone number.

She did call me and asked me my email address to send the form. She also asked me to scan my passport (I am foreigner in this country) and email back to her. Since I was not comfortable to send my particular through email, then I called the credit card customer service and ask whether they can check whether this person and the email address is a valid and genuine one. The customer service said that they could not check, and tell me that they will send the form through mail if I want. So I said OK.

Today, that person called again and ask me why I still haven't emailed the form and passport to her. I told her that I am not comfortable and since the customer service of her credit card company can not confirm, I don't think I want to send.

She asked me to called the customer service again and asked them to transfer the phone to her (she gave me her phone number). So I did, and it seems she is a genuine rep for that particular credit card company.

Well, I think play safe is better.

Rotar Virus Vaccination

This coming Sunday, my younger daughter is going to get rotarvirus vaccination. This virus is the main cause of gastroenteritis in babies and children, and is highly contagious. It leads to fever, vomiting and diarrhoea, and the symptoms last between one and three days. Around ten thousand children each year are admitted to hospital because of this bug.


Viral Marketing Blog

The first time I heard about viral marketing, I thought it had something to do with marketing a virus. It turned out that what I assumed was completely wrong.

Viral marketing describes any efforts that encourage people to pass a certain message to other people through the internet. The idea is to pass the message along to as many people as possible through the internet. Thus, if one person passes the message to 10 people, and each of them in turn passes it on to another 10 people, definitely this message can reach thousands or even millions of people.

Off course in order for people to pass a certain message, they have to like to what they read, hear, or see. The real intent of the message is to advertise a certain product, but if you can make the advertisement attractive, or include a certain element that attracts people to read, hear, or watch it, there is a good chance that your advertisement can spread very fast.

I keep applying the Listerine to my older daughter, and until now she doesn't have any single bite. When one day I forgot to apply, she got 3 bites in her legs and 1 bite in her arm. Now, whenever I forgot to apply, she reminds me.

Again, the only Listerine that works is the brown color. Some said have to dilute with water, other said have to mix with vinegar, but I found that it works just apply as it is.


Ford Mustang Website

My friend’s husband owns 2 Ford Mustangs one is a convertible and the other one is a coupe. The Ford Mustang is an icon of the American muscle car industry and is manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Ford Mustang can be summed up as a car with a sporty image and is the dream car of most American teenage boys. The new Ford Mustang model has the slogan, it is the “car designed by you” as shown in its advertisements because of its wide array of option packages and easy to customize features to reflect the driver’s personal taste.

If you are a fan of James Bond, then you might remember that the Ford Mustang made an appearance in “Goldfinger”.

If you like to know more about this car, you should go to this new website called Ford Mustang FAQ’s – The Ultimate Ford Mustang Website. You can find almost anything about Ford Mustang in that website. You can even buy Ford Mustang’s parts for your year model with free shipping.


My Favorite Books

My favorite books are Little House Series. It was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. You might remember the TV version directed by Michael Landon.

The Little House series (also known as "Laura Years") is based on decades-old memories of Laura Ingalls Wilder's childhood in the Midwest region of the United States during the late 19th century. The best-known of the books is Little House on the Prairie. The books are told in the third person, with Laura Ingalls acting as the central character and protagonist, and are generally classified as historical fiction rather than as autobiography, although several of the later books are almost purely autobiographical.

I like to read these books is because you can almost feels that you are there when you read it. I love how the author described everything in details. It makes everything seems real.


Stem Cell Awareness

My mom told me that she still kept my dried umbilical cord stump. She said that even if it has dried, it still contains vital stems cells that can be harvested and preserved. I am not sure whether it is true or not, but now you can preserve your newborn’s umbilical cord blood stem cells in a cord blood bank.

A study by the U.S. Census Bureau (2005) shows that August is the month with the highest number of births recorded in the United States. In fact, a new birth occurs every 7 seconds in this country. With the growing number of babies born in just August alone, it is imperative that parents-to-be, know about the importance of umbilical cord blood banking. Cord blood contains vital stems cells that can be harvested and preserved. These stem cells can be used to treat 70 diseases, including leukemia, anemia, lymphoma, diabetes and cerebral palsy. Parents need to be informed about the emerging new discoveries happening in stem cell research today.

Cryo-Cell International is dedicated to campaign and educate expectant parents about the benefits of preserving their newborn's cord blood stem cells so they can make informed decisions for their families. Cryo-Cell offers innovative, safe and affordable solutions for cord blood banking. The company is committed to serving the needs of parents, with highly trained child birth educators available for consultation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Cryo-Cell has successfully stored more than 155,000 cord blood samples. Check out their current offer!


Macarena Dance

How do you dance Macarena?

Put your right arm out straight in front of you with your palm down. Then do the same with your left arm. Then turn your right palm to the ceiling, then your left. Then bend your right arm so that your right hand goes on your left shoulder. Do the same with your left (so that left hand goes on your right shoulder). Your arms should now be crossed with your elbows out in front of you. Then put your right hand on the right side of your head. Then your left to the left side of your head. Then cross your right arm over your waste, then your left (right hand should be on left side of your waste and vise versa). Then put your right hand on your right hip, then your left on your left hip. Then you should be at the point of the song when it goes HEYYYY MACARENA!, during which you shake around your hips a little and jump so that you turn 90 degrees. Then you start the whole thing facing the new direction.

How does it started?

Watch this below video. I am not sure whether this is how it is started, but it is fun to watch.


Normal or Nuts?

Do you have a quirk or a habit? If you think you have, you should read the “Are You Normal or Nuts?” section in the Reader's Digest. You can read many examples of other people’s quirk and have a good laugh to read them.

My favorite one is about somebody’s mother who loves to move around furniture, and she is already 70 years old. She must be a very strong lady. When I read this, I remember about my husband’s aunty. She is also in her 70’s and she loves to clean house. From morning to dawn she dedicated her attention and energy to clean her house. Sometimes she even sweeps the road outside her house.

I think everybody has their own quirk. My own quirk is that I love to read the same books over and over again. Even I already read it many times, I still able to laugh or cry when I read it.

Let's face it! We're all a little nutty, but sometimes it's good to share it with the world and most of all, laugh about it!! If you want to share your own nuttiness or want to read other people’s quirk, you can go to Reader's Digest Laughs and click on "Are You Normal or Nuts?" section.

When should your baby be able to hold a bottle?

Most babies are able to hold their own bottle by the time they are nine months old. Some babies start as early as six months and others don't do it until they are almost one year old.

My older daughter didn't want to hold her own bottles until she was almost 2. She could but she simply just wanted me to hold her bottle so she could snuggle against me.


Reusable Grocery Bags

According to data released by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 2001 on U.S. plastic bag, sack, and wrap consumption, somewhere between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. All of these bags eventually break down into tiny toxic bits polluting our soil, river, lakes and oceans, and countless animals needlessly die each year. We need to do something to prevent these to happen.

As part of the solution Cozy Homewares features a wide range of reusable grocery bags and other innovative, practical products. All are designed to help people consume less, preserve natural resources and save money too. They also provide free shipping.


Bypass Surgery

My FIL just recovered from the bypass surgery. The operation was done on Tuesday. It was a successful surgery and the doctor said that he is recovering very fast. Today when I visited him in the hospital, he looked good.

What is coronary artery bypass surgery?
This is a type of heart surgery. It's sometimes called CABG ("cabbage"). The surgery reroutes, or "bypasses," blood around clogged arteries to improve blood flow and oxygen to the heart.

Interesting Facts About Baby Feet

The other day, when I was playing around with my new camera, I noticed that baby feet was a very cute object to take a photo, but also difficult to take when the baby was awake. Luckily it’s a digital camera, so you can take a much as you want and delete the one that you don’t want.

Interesting facts about baby feet:

A baby who's just started walking takes 176 steps a minute!

At birth your baby only has 22 out of the full 26 bones in their feet and the remaining few develop slowly throughout childhood, with the whole process finishing at around 16 to 18 years old. That means, baby feet are plumper and softer than adult feet and as such, need to grow and develop in soft, flexible shoes.

To avoid compressing and restricting baby’s feet, it is important to make sure that a baby’s shoes, socks and clothes are loose enough that they are able to move around easily. At least 18mm of growing room should be allowed between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.

Due to the exertion of so much energy when learning to stand and balance, a baby’s foot sweats twice as much as adults! Because of this, it is important to only dress little feet in shoes and socks made of material that is breathable and absorbent. Also, make sure that a baby’s foot is completely dry after bathing.

Growth of babies’ feet is seasonal with faster growth in the warmer months. On average, children’s feet grow 2 full sizes a year until they are four years old. Little feet should be measured monthly the first year, every two months between the ages of 12 months and 24 months, and every 3 months from 24 to 36 months.

The easiest way to trim a babies nails is simply by peeling them with your fingers. They should be soft enough to avoid using scissors but, if required, only cut when two adults are around: one to hold wriggly feet, the other to do the careful cutting. Special baby scissors with rounded ends are available.

The flat footed appearance of some baby feet is normal and is caused by an extra layer of fat filling out the arches. This layer generally disappears at the end of toddler years when muscles strengthen and arches begin to develop

The curling of a babies foot when touched is known as the “plantar reflex” and is a indication of a healthy connection between the brain and spinal cord. When touched under the foot, the toes of a young baby (less than a few months) will fan out while those of an older baby will curl.

Experts agree that when possible, barefoot is best for babies. Footwear should be used when needed for warmth and protection (and sometimes to make an outfit!). When footwear is worn it should be appropriate to developmental stage.

Medical experts agree that flexible, soft-sole shoes are best for optimal growth and development of young feet. Traditional stiff, high-top, hard-sole shoes are actually detrimental to the growth and development of little feet


Short Break in Wales

If you are looking for a destination for a family holiday, you can try going to Pembrokeshire in the UK. Pembrokeshire is a county in the southwest of Wales in the United Kingdom, surrounded by the sea on all sides except in the northeast where it is bounded by Cardiganshire and in the east where it is bounded by Carmarthenshire. It has a population of 112,000 inhabitants. The highest point in the county is Foel Cwmcerwyn (1759ft/536m). The county boasts 170 miles (≈275 km) of magnificent coastline comprising important seabird breeding sites and numerous bays and sandy beaches.

There is a contemporary luxury holiday cottage in Pembrokeshire called the Celtic Haven. Celtic Haven is situated at the heart of the stunning Pembrokeshire National Park and has excellent access to the country's motorway network.

So, if you are interested in this Short Break Wales accommodation, you can just fill in the form with your phone number and they will call you back.


What's the best way to take baby's temperature?

For starters, you'll need a good digital thermometer, which you can find in drugstores for less than $10. Digital thermometers are easy to use, easy to read, and fast — most give an accurate reading in ten seconds to two minutes.

Don’t use an old-fashioned glass thermometer. These thermometers can shatter and leak dangerous mercury.

My suggestion is to use digital ear thermometers. This type of thermometer usually more expensive and can only be used in the ear, however you can get the result in a second.


Playing Card

My mother loves to play cards. She can play cards by herself for hours. When I was young, I used to watch her playing cards. Sometimes, I also played with her.

Newt's Playing Cards has published two different decks of Politically WILD! Playing Cards which hallmark various politicians, political celebrities and issues as wild animals and scenes. You will find John McCain the dinosaur and Barack Obama the Juguar in this deck.

I think I should buy these cards for my mom. I am sure she will be delighted to have them.

Here is the press release:

As we continue to move closer to the WILD 2008 Presidential Election, there is no doubt these decks of cards will continue to make light of the WILD politics we see every 4 years. “Both of these political decks of cards have a little fun with the Presidential candidates and also highlight some of the top political issues of our time,” says James Esteph, President of Newt's Playing Cards. “I could have never imagined making political figures in to wild animals could be so much fun and entertaining.”

Newt's Playing Cards has published two different decks of Politically WILD! ( Playing Cards ($6) which hallmark various politicians, political celebrities and issues as wild animals and scenes. One deck is intended for Barack Obama and the Democrats and the other deck is intended for John McCain and the Republicans. You will find John McCain drawn as a dinosaur, skunk and horse with Barack Obama drawn as an Ostrich, Jaguar and Baby Boomer in these unique decks of cards. While each deck supports the respected candidate, you will also find drawings of many other politicians and political celebrities. For example, you will find Sean Hannity as a Kangaroo, Mike Huckabee as a Dodo Bird, and Hillary Clinton as a Lioness to name a few.

Another different aspect of this “interactive” political deck is that many of the remarks on the cards come from the comments that have been added to a political blog ( over the past few months. This renders these playing cards the first interactive deck that allows the general public to be involved in its content.

Serving as miniature political posters, the card back designs and aces depict face shots of Senator McCain in the Republican deck and Senator Obama in the Democrat deck.

Newt's has been selling playing cards since 2000. Over the years (formerly has transformed into the playing card portal on the internet offering playing cards from around the world. (
