Silver Bars

Looking for a great investment? Try investing in silver bars! Of course, when choosing where to buy your silver bars, I highly suggest buying from the MDC, or the Monex Deposit Company. The MDC is considered as the American leader in gold, silver, and precious metals investment.

When buying silver, you have the option of buying them in coin or ingot form. Ingots are pure bullion cast in a convenient size and shape, while coins are common and have a currency value. It would be a good idea to buy silver now, because the demand for silver exceeds annual production, and it has been such since 1990.

So, if you are in search of a great investment, do try out silver bars. With demands for silver exceeding supplies, you are sure that this is a smart investment that will yield high returns.

Bloggers and Blogging

I've always had a passion for writing, and I am so glad and thankful that I cam across the concept of blogging. I can share my thoughts and opinions to the world, and even make a small amount with it. Imagine this, getting paid to do what you love!

Of course, since blogging is something that I love doing, I'd like to learn as much as I can about it. I wouldn't want to be just writing away but doing things wrong, right? So, I tried to search and find some useful online tools for a blogger. With the technology we have, it's best that I search and know as much as I can about this blogging world.

I learned that adding some images are a great way to attract more readers. Staring at paragraphs and paragraphs of text can be enough to drive a reader away, as a whole page full of text can be quite boring. Adding videos are also a great way to add some sparkle to your blog, as your readers can not only read about the topic you are writing about, but they can also watch it.

The choice of font, blog template, and the layout of your blog are also some things you need to consider when starting a blog and writing on it. When writing a blog, choosing how many columns you will have is also important, as you will need some space where to put your posts, some ads to help you earn money, and some images and widgets that will be useful to you and your blog.

So to all the bloggers out there, it is best to be prepared before starting a blog of your own. We wouldn't want to start on the wrong foot now would we? Happy blogging to all the bloggers out there in the wide world of blogosphere!

Plus is OK

I've always admired the likes of Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. With their polished faces, impeccable smiles, perfect hair, and Barbie - like bodies, who wouldn't? When I was growing up I'd eat half of my food since I was never thin enough in my own opinion and I imitated their walks on the catwalk, I'd fix my hair and play with make-up, and dress up with clothes I found from my mom's and my sister's closets.

But when I got into a long term relationship that eventually ended up into marriage, I realized that I liked myself. Even though I was never as slim or as thin as I wanted to be, somebody fell in love with me for just the way I was. This realization came as an epiphany for me and it opened my eyes into self acceptance. Sure, I'll never be a Kate Moss or a Cindy Crawford in this life, but I was special and I meant the world to someone, just the way I am. For me, that meant a whole lot more.

Years later and with two children of my own who are also girls, I try to imbue in them the value of loving themselves. With motherhood and being a wife, I may have gained more weight than when I was single, but being a plus size doesn't mean the end of the world. I've learned that dress sizes shouldn't mean everything to us as it certainly does not hold the key to one's happiness. A dress size should not dictate what kind of life a person is bound to live, and it should not be everything there is about a person. There is far more to life than fitting into small sized clothes, and I wish I had learned that sooner.

All I can say is, to those who are easily attracted by physical appearances, especially towards thin people, you don't know what you're missing. Sure, they may be attractive and look better in clothes, but try being skin deep for a change. Being a plus size is absolutely OK.

Happy Birthday Nicole!

Happy 2nd Birthday Nicole!
Love, Mommy, Daddy, Lola, and Ate Keisha.

Touch Phones

I have always wanted a touch screen phone ever since the Apple iPhone was released, but I was stuck deciding on which touch phone I should buy. Of course, I wanted the touch phones pay as you go kind, because I'd like to be able to control how I spend - be it through SMS, MMS, and for calls, not to mention that I also want to use WAP for browsing the internet on my phone while on the go. So, I also have to take into consideration my data costs.

Samsung touch phones are the phones I considered at first, because Samsung is a great brand and it has always been very popular. Plus, Samsung phones do not depreciate fast. The prices of Samsung phones are relatively stable and they stay at the same amount for months and months. But I've never had a Samsung phone before and I don't really know much about navigating it and I wonder how I would go about using it. Of course, I would like to be able to use my phone to its full potential, and use all of its features to my advantage. With this in mind, I would like to have a touch screen phone that is also very much user friendly.

So I ended up buying Nokia touch phones, particularly the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music which is red in color, my favorite color. I have had a Nokia phone before, and it was actually the first brand of my first ever cellular phone years and years ago. Even though I was a newbie when it came to cellphones, I didn't have a hard time navigating my first Nokia phone. So, the daunting concept of me having a touch phone would not be so daunting if I had a Nokia one. As I thought, I was right! I totally love my Nokia 5800 Xpress Music phone. With its 8GB internal memory and 3.2 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera, I can take all of my favorite songs with me on the go and take clear pictures and not have to delete them. With its built in WiFi technology, I can also surf the internet wherever I am! I just love this touch phone, and I wish I had bought it sooner!

Drag Me to Hell

We watched Drag Me to Hell a few weeks back and I just not got the time to blog about it. It's a horror - suspense movie featuring an ordinary girl with a great life, a great boyfriend, and a promising promotion at the bank she works for. But in 3 days unless she breaks the curse, she's going to hell.

The movie managed to make me scream in a few scenes, since they were very well made and the make-up and animation was great. The movie was also very fast paced and totally not dragging, and there's really no dull moment while watching the movie. All the actors were really great, and they fit their roles perfectly.

What I didn't like about the movie though is that the movie, Drag Me to Hell, had a very predictable ending. I don't want to be a spoiler, so just watch the movie and find out for yourself what I mean. It will bring out some screams, but I felt disappointed at the end.

Endurance Athletes

I've never been the sporty type of person, but I am a fan of sports though I am not directly involved in it. I admire people involved in sports, especially those who are winning in the Olympics and those making a name for themselves because of sports. I wonder, will I be able to push myself into doing sports? I don't expect to win a medal, I just want to be fit and perform my best in the sport I choose.

Goodbye to the King of Pop

I was surprised to find out that Michael Jackson passed away. I was going to log into my Yahoo Mail when the headline grabbed my attention. The report said he was in full cardiac arrest and didn't have a pulse.

I am sorry to hear that a very important part of the music industry has passed away. Sure, he was involved in child molestation cases and the world watched as his face and skin color changed, but to me he is still just a musician. Whatever he does with his personal life is something that is not really my business. He became popular for his music, not for his personality in the first place.

So to the King of Pop Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009), thank you for the music and you will always be remembered.

My Workstation

Working in a contact center can be frustrating, especially if you get lots and lots of irate callers. What I do is I always have pictures of my family with me so that I will always keep a cool head and not get affected with whatever is happening with me and my callers. It works for me, while for some, they have a mirror to make sure that they are always smiling since the smile really does show through the phone.

I have pictures of Henry, Keisha, and Nicole, and I even have them as my wallpaper on my PC. Here's what my workstation looks like:

They're my inspiration, and they keep me focused at work. Having their pictures around me while I work makes sense to me!

Dream With Me

Here's a good question:

If money is of no object, what furniture would you like to put in your home?

I'd probably go with rustic furniture. They're timeless and very functional and at the same time, very beautiful. Like this bed for example. I'd love to sleep and wake up on a bed like this.

Happy Independence Day!

Proud to be Pinoy!
Happy Independence Day!

The Digital Transition

June 12 marks Philippine Independence, but for the United States,
it marks the digital transition. A lot of people fully understand what's happening on the 12th (tomorrow US time). Basically, the channels that people can watch on rabbit ears or an off air antenna that is connected to an analog TV will no longer be available. People will either have to have digital converters and/or a cable or satellite TV provider to continue getting channels.

By doing so, there will be more frequencies for the government to use like for fire, rescue, and the police. By going digital. TV stations will be able to provide better quality picture and sound. Both the government, TV station providers, and the viewers will be benefiting from this change. It's a major change, and a lot of people will be left with major adjustments but in the end, it's all for the good. Hopefully things turn out well for the people of the USA tomorrow.

My Favicon is Missing!

I was honestly going to make a post about something really different until I noticed that my favicons are missing! OMG!!!

All four of my blogs - Rant and Rave!, Something and Nothing at All, Life with Keisha, and Life with Nicole all had favicons and now they're ALL gone!!!

I don't know what's wrong or whether the site I'm hosting the favicons are are just experiencing a system maintenance or something. The last time I logged in and changed blog templates, everything was working fine.

I guess I may have to wait this out for a couple of days before taking any drastic measures. Who knows? This just might fix itself by itself.

Coffee anyone?

I just love how Life with Keisha and Life with Nicole looks like. Do head on and visit these blogs so you'll see what I mean. Do stop by and leave a comment on what you think.

See you there!

Hair, Beautiful Hair!

For quite some time now I've kept my hair long, one of the reasons being Henry likes it this way. But it can get hot and hard to manage. Plus, there are also hairstyles that I would like to play around with. What about you, what do you take into account when choosing a hair style?
