Amazing Race 13: Final 4

I am so sad today. My fave team in amazing race was eliminated. Toni and Dallas are mother-son team-up. Toni is a single mom giving Dallas a great childhood. Dallas is in college and living on his own. They were ahead at start but, when Dallas forgot all the money and the passport in the taxi, everything turn upside down. What a heart breaking experience. Final 3 teams will compete for a million dollar for nextweek episode. The three remaining teams were:
Nick and Starr brother-sister team
Ken-Tina married couple team
Andrew-Dan fraternity brothers
It will be exciting nextweek. I love Nick and Star to win though. So, the eliminated 8 teams will be waiting for them on the last Pit Stop.

Post Thanksgiving Accident

My hubby and I sleep over in our friends house because they spent thanksgiving in their hometown. When I was about to sleep past midnight after blogging, I noticed that the honking of the train was really loud and didn't stop for so long. This is like our second home so, I was so sure that hearing the honking of the train was really unusual. The next morning, Fox News came to its early news and this was what happened:

3 young people were killed when their car collided with Amtrak. The train is heading to New York from Miami with 167 passengers all were reported safe, returning home from thanksgiving. What a tragic accident. Lives were lost because of wrong decisions to out-run the train.

Thanksgiving Day


As I wake up having a bad migraine, the bed is my only refuge. My husband did the cooking and he came up to me if I will take a picture of the turkey...hehehe....The childlike side of me, i took the pictures and this plate was all I could ate. My tummy refused to digest so, you knew what happened next....

The Day Before Thanksgiving

I was really excited to have this celebration because it would be my first. We do all the shopping at Walmart and we bought a 15lb turkey, a traditional symbol of Thanksgiving. While my hubby was busy buying stuffs for thanksgiving, I bought some chocolates too intended to send to the Philippines this week. I was really full of energy so, at dinner time, I prepared salad, heat the leftover roasted chicken and mushroom soup.We had a hearty dinner that night. We always love watching the news afterwards and so, my hubby bought me this Ferrero Rocher and I gobbled most of it...hahaha...I was having a good day actually. When I wake up on Thanksgiving Day...got a migraine and end up lying in bed most of the day and I tried to ate my share....yet, everything is thrown out...the result: was absent today at work.

Hollywood Studio

What can I do blogger friends? I love the sky! Hahaha.....Okay, how about signage this time?
Or how about going to Hollywood Studio? Got nothing to do but ..."Click!....take a pic!" Let's go!The entrance of Walt Disney's Hollywood Studio....
One of the live attractions, Indiana Jones... The actors were really great. Equally talented and they acted some of the scenes of the movie. Inside, you will see live scenes of the movie, real explosions that you can really feel the heat. The actors explained the effects and the cinema magic they used to make the movie realistic to see.Gezzz....tourists are everywhere. I never imagine that I could go this far. As I explore the park, all I have in my mind was " How I wish the pupils in my school can visit this awesome place." Hmm...(Sigh) Mas masaya talaga bumisita sa mga ganitong lugar kapag kasama natin pamilya at kaibigan diba?
This area is dedicated to the famous people in television like Oprah Winfrey. Their head statue are on display.
The humongous parking lot named after Disney's characters like Pluto, Mickey, Minnie....etc. Every parking lot here is not for free. You need to pay $12.00. If you come to Orlando, don't park your car anywhere, towing company are plenty here.
The vehicle that transport the tourists from the parking lot to the main entrance of the park. Remember your parking lot number and the name of the character. Many tourists takes for granted these reminders ending their day exhausted and lost.

Good News Right?

We kept on complaining every time we see prices go up. But, look at it now? Wheww...that is only in Orlando, Florida. How about in your places guys? In Philippines, my mother said the prices of the fare of jeepney started to pull down. Good news and hope it continues to go down so everybody will be happy. I took this picture 2days ago. And yesterday, it goes down to $1.80 in BJ's ( one of my favorite places to shop). They also have their own gas station and offers good price for members of their store. $1.93 to $1.80....really goes down in a day. What a good news!

Thirty Seven Years Ago

I read a piece of history so; I grab it and post it here. Yet, I added some research and as what I gathered, 37 years ago in the Philippines, an explosion during the proclamation rally of the senatorial slate of the opposition Liberal Party in Plaza Miranda in Quiapo, Manila on August 21, 1971, prompted Marcos to suspend the writ of habeas corpus hours after the blast. A turning point in Philippine history and maybe a reason why I am interested in Social Studies. The chaotic transformation of Philippine Government at that time is very obvious. Click here to know the comprehensive history of the year 1971.

My Normal Day

I don't know what fascinates me with the sky. I just love taking pictures of the clouds. See how beautiful the sky is ? Sometimes it is gloomy and sometimes it's happy. Nice! Everyday, I always asked my hubby to drive me to places I wanna go. I enjoyed taking pictures while we are on mobile. These are just some of those.
For today, I went back to downtown just driving around with my hubby and have a good seafood dinner afterwards. If you happen to come to Orlando, visit this place... Lake Eola, considered as Orlando's "Central Park" due to its central location, historical significance and a usual venue for local events and festivals. Lake Eola Fountain - the landmark which is in the center of Lake Eola and is embedded to the lake bottom with concrete beams. The scenic fountain is illuminated nightly with green lighting within the fountain dome. The park also features swan boat rentals and an amphitheater that has been a host to many events. One of the most popular events held at the park is the annual Independence Day firework show that takes place every 4th of July. A 0.85-mile recreational pathway circles the park, and leads to a children's playground.






Sorry it's blurry. We ate Oysters. I only ate half a dozen and it is steamed.

Ever After


Have you ever watch a movie that made you feel so in-love? And made you cry not because it was dramatic but mainly for reason that it feels so good to be true. What was it? Ever After is just one of my favorite movies. It was a 1998 movie starred by Drew Barrymore and Dougray Scott. This is a Cinderella movie. The movie started when the brothers Grimm arrived at the home of a welthy Grande Dame (Jeanne Moreau) who speaks of the many legends including the true story of her ancestor. The story then flashback on Danielle (Drew Barrymore) who is 8 year old, daughter of a wealthy widower and a 16th century landowner. The father dies of a heart attack after returning to France with his new wife Rodmilla (Anjelica Huston) with 2 daughters. For 10 years, Danielle is now treated as a servant by the evil step mom and the eldest daughter. At this time, Prince Henry ( Dougray Scott) is fleeing the palace, angered by an arranged marriage and his path crossed with Danielle. Later, when Danielle poses as a Lady, the Prince takes an interest in her. Inventor-artist Leonardo da Vinci (Patrick Godfrey), accepting the French court's patronage, offers advice to Prince Henry on matters of the heart. Everyone knows the Cinderella story right? It ended that way...hehehe. What I ike in this movie is the humor and depth of the character of Danielle as to how she hope, a compassionate woman to her subordinate and having an admirable patience which is hard to endure in reality. Oh well, it ended happily ever after.

Launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavour

Last night, I was watching Fox News covering live on the Endeavour Launch at Fort Canaveral, Florida and right after it launched, we went outside the front yard to see it in the sky. It was so clear and beautiful. My first time to witness but I wish to really see it in the facility itself. It is an hour drive from home but, we are too lazy to drive to Kennedy Space Center. Endeavour is the 27th shuttle flight to the International Space Station orbiting 220 miles above Earth.
Mission: (126th) Expansion of the Space Station facilities such as kitchen, bedroom and bathroom to accommodate a 6 member crew.
Load: a.) 2 food warmers, refrigerator, water dispenser (these are not the ordinary kitchen things that we have in our houses) which will be installed in the U.S. Destiny laboratory module of the station;
b.) high-tech home improvement materials;
c.) food and clothing for the station crew;
d.) modular crew quarter with laptop connectivity which will be installed in Harmony node;
e.) exercise equipment;
f.) waste and hygiene compartment which is a Russian-built toilet compartment
g.) and a water recovery system- from waste water into a drinking quality water
( if you are curious with these high-tech things, click here )
Below are just the pictures I took when I was there last August. Even the rug in their facility is not safe with my camera.LOL!
This building is one of the stop when you tour the facility. At the top floor, you can view clearly the Launch Area as seen on the top picture using the telescope of course (need a coin to function though...hehehe).
Launch Complex 39, Observation Gantry Area. Oh well, I need my remembrance too LOL. A tourist noticed that I took pictures most of the time and he volunteered, what a nice gesture.huh! "Mahangin sa labas" .... no time to comb my hair...hahaha!
The launch pad ( the tiny building at the far end)....told you guys, i need a sophisticated camera to zoom in the picture I want...waaaaaa. This is how you see it at the top floor in naked eye. If you use the telescope...100x better. I think, this is the nearest facility that you can go to see the launch area, unless you work in that location.
This is the road of the big CRAWLER- a vehicle that transport the rocket from Vehicle Assembly Building to Mobile Launch Flatform and would take 5 hours to travel. No wonder it is called crawler...hehehe...it runs so slow imagine the weight of a big rocket. This is the picture of crawler moving the shuttle. Click here.
Okay, this is where they assemble the rocket...the VAB . It is pretty big actually. Imagine the big rocket again...how genius these people working here ha.
How big is the ROCKET? THIS BIG. Yep, I am the ant below the steel. By the way, this is the real SATURN V ROCKET, the rear engines alone are so huge. This is the moon rocket. The whole building in this floor from this point onward is the whole rocket display. How huge it is right?Okay, that is all friends...be telling you more about my escapades next time.....educational right? Wish my pupils can see these things...(sigh)

" It may look like a humble tiny nut, but almonds are an effective weapon in the battle against heart disease and a valuable antioxidant with so many cancer-fighting qualities. "

They have sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, California or Turkish Pistachios and some Gold Series items such as: Virginia Peanuts, Fancy Cashews, Mammoth Peacans, Dry-Roasted Macadamias and Supreme Almonds my favorite in gourmet nuts . Almonds would make a great gift for this holiday because not only that it taste good, crunchy to the bite and delicious, it is very nutritious too.

This very tasty tidbits has tons of essential nutrients in one very delicious seed. It has low in saturated fat and contain many other protective nutrients such as calcium and magnesium for strong bones. It is a good source of fiber; contains protein and monounsaturated fat; low in cholesterol and sodium; a good source of riboflavin and manganese plus a very good source of Vitamin E which may help protect against Cardiovascular disease and even cancer.

NO FISHING

As you can see in this picture, a bird is waiting for a glimpse of fish to catch and sitting on a NO FISHING signage...cool ha?

JourneyLite

Some people have a hard time losing weight. Over and over again, we always hear this common problem, lose weight but afraid of surgery. Yet, there is one solution for this kind of dilemma and that is up to the expert hands of lap band surgeon. At JourneyLite.com , the surgeons who practice in their facilities are specializing the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding procedure, most commonly referred to as the LAP-BAND® System or the Realize Band. All surgery is performed laparoscopically on an outpatient basis, so you will have surgery in the morning and should be discharged to go home a few hours later to enjoy the comforts of your own bed that night.

The adjustable gastric banding procedure is the only adjustable and reversible weight-loss surgery available in the United States today and is performed by making several tiny incisions in the upper abdomen. Small instruments – including a laparoscopic camera – are inserted through these tiny incisions into the abdomen. A silastic band is securely placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger stomach. Once the band is in place and secure, the surgical instruments are removed and all incisions are closed.
