Cinderella Castle in Different Colors

Last week, our friend along the Kissimmee area called us that her relief goods are ready for pick-up. I was asking for relief items for my relatives and neighbors back home (Storm Washi/flood survivors). Glad I have two boxes filled already and ready for shipping but of course, I shoulder the $140 shipping costs. Anyway, after chit-chatting with them on politics, hubby and I decided to visit any Disney World Theme Park since we are already in the area. It was already 4PM and we parked in Animal Kingdom parking lot and ride the monorail to Magic Kingdom. When we arrived, this is the crowd. Let me tell you, this is not the busiest season. It always jam packed with tourists all over the world.Since we are just taking our time, we wanted to stay and roam the area, the Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland has the following attractions: Tomorrowland Speedway, Astro Orbiter, Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover, Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Stich's Great Escape, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and Space Mountain. Okay, the only attraction that I did not try is the Space Mountain.
I enjoyed the speedway but, Hubby insisted of driving it. So, next time I will be the driver.
We finished around 8PM because there was no long waiting lines. We were thirsty so we sat down at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe' and got me a chili cheese fries.We did not wait for the fireworks that night, we've seen it many times. People started to gather along the Main Street USA and in the Cinderella Castle Forecourt area. Walking away, I took these pictures as the castle changes it's beautiful background colors.

Effective Trade Show Displays

Every time there is a trade show event happening here in Orlando, Hubby and I always took the time to come see it. We shop for things that we need in the house and of course, we love receiving free stuffs during the event. It is always fun to visit a trade show because of the colorful and organize business space of the participants. There are trade show flooring so; advertising of their business is visible for everybody. Usually, we start from one end and walk our way towards the other end of the trade show area.

There are live shows and demonstrations of many products such as kitchen appliances, health and wellness machines, sauna and spa, and many more. Most of the time, the business used trade show carpet in their space and it's really attractive and beautifies the area. There are so many of them used logo canopy and the whole space inside is just the right size to display their products. It is not only used outside an open space ground but also indoors.

From my point of view, most of the participants in the trade show are very creative and really do something that can attract customers. Most of their strategies are very effective because I saw people coming out from the trade shows have bags filled with what they bought inside. Well, that would include us. We always buy something we like most. What they did with their area works great and inviting. What more can I say but, thumbs up!

Fixed Rates or Adjustable Rates

We are anxious to hear the final good news about the property that we bid last month. The seller of the townhouse accepted our offer in less than a week and it made us so happy. But, since the property was listed as a short sale, the bank of the seller will have to approve on the sellers' price. This would mean one thing; the sellers' bank has the last say about the price of the property. We both love this townhouse because the building is new and the HOA is minimal. We are hoping that the bank can come up a decision soon.

Anyway, are you planning to buy a house soon? If you have a good credit, you will have no problem with any mortgage loan because lending institutions will definitely love to have you as their client. But if your credit is bad, do not despair. You will get approved too. The interest rate is not the same with those having a good credit but the good news, your mortgage application will not be turned down. Lending institutions offer fixed rates or adjustable rates so; make sure to set your goal to either pay lower amount for long years or pay it in few years' time.

Vacation Home

This guest post from Werner Rogers:

We have had our mountain home for years and just had our family and close friends using it. We recently decided that we were going to start renting it out to people to earn some extra money. That is one of the easiest ways to get money because it doesn't actually involve doing or making anything. The only thing we have to do is correspond with the people interested in the cabin and send them the keys when their trip is coming up. We did have to make a few adjustments to make the cabin more appealing for people to rent. We put in a washer and dryer and added a few decorative touches. I knew a big selling point would be free internet access but I didn't know if it would be a possibility. I went to and found away to offer this. Now people on vacation can bring their laptops and upload photos of their vacation to Facebook while they are actually on their vacation! Maybe we will even buy a laptop to let the renters use while they are on vacation.

How Do You Like to See More Clearly on Valentines Day

Oh yeah, it is an understatement when I asked whether you like to see more clearly on Valentines Day. The answer is no-brainer and I am certain that all would say yes! But what if for the sake of arguments, you would say NO? Of course, I will throw a follow up question just to pull you back to the first question again! Anyway, everyone would love to see clearly, literally.

If you are searching for an eyeglass that will match with your dress for Valentines Day, you should check out Zenni Optical. This online optical store has hundreds of great eyeglasses that you can choose from and affordable too

A Proud Home Owner

When I was growing up, we moved from one apartment to another. We either rent the property or rent the land to build our house. I told myself, "this course has to end" and I will buy a house for my Mom. She is a single parent and she deserves a break. I found a job after graduation and in two years, I reached that dream of becoming a proud home owner.

Every month, I am paying a mortgage and my property is under a government home loan. I do not consider a refinancing option from any institution since my home loan is almost paid off. My husband and I owned two properties also and both are fully paid. We are aiming to buy another property as rental income but then again, as much as we can afford it, we plan to purchase the property in cash to avoid the monthly obligations.

Despite the properties that we have, I am still hoping to buy my dream home. Since it will be an expensive house, mortgage lenders are great option to consider. If I sign a mortgage for 30 years, it will benefit me as a buyer because the cash value of the money at present will always be less than the cash value in 30 years.

Anyway, if you want to buy a property, just do it now while the real estate business dive down rock bottom. This is the right moment to buy the property because there are so many properties listed as foreclosure and the price is really unbelievable. If you decide to have a mortgage payments, make sure that you can afford it or else, foreclosure may occur on your case too. Be a smart consumer and do not be a victim of loan fraud.

There are so many lending institutions out there who are willing to assist you in your home buying process. Aurora loan, a mortgage lender is one of them and is all set to help people like you who needed a home loan. If you want to buy a beautiful home, a lending institution will be your great option. If you have the time, you can check out their Website at and take a moment to understand their process. They offer online banking too so you can access their site at the comfort of your home.

I Do Care

When we went to Mississippi last year, I bought 30 pieces of clothes in SEARS because they are on SALE. I spent less than $100 for everything (90% off) and I was supposed to send those clothes last December for my relatives in CDO. I failed to do so when Storm Washi or Bagyong Sendong struck CDO on Dec. 16, 2011. I diverted my budget for shipping and added the amount to send financial help for my relatives and friends. This week, I will be sending 2 balikbayan boxes and those new clothes will be included in the box. (see the pix below) I tried asking help from hubbys' friends and thank God, one replied. This is better than nothing right? I already accepted the fact that when I beg for help, I am not convincing. The owner of the clothes below works at American Airlines so, her clothes are worth keeping for and I know, the recipient will be happy to wear them. Thanks to Christine Danyi, you are an angel in disguise. May God bless you abundantly! Thank you so much for extending your arms to help the survivors of Sendong. The recipient of these two boxes will be the residents of District 3 Consolacion, Cagayan de Oro City. This will be distributed to the 46 families whom I know from childhood. It would be nice if you do the same thing just to lighten up a little bit of their misery. This is not much but, these things will give them encouragement that others care for them. Go ahead! Do share!

Cinderella Costume for Her Birthday

"When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you"

Children and those young at heart loves Cinderella.

My niece lives halfway around the globe so; our communication rely solely in Skype. One Sunday afternoon, she told me that she wanted to wear a princess dress for her birthday party. She was actually reminding me that the six pairs of Disney princess shoes that I sent her will be incomplete without the dress. She is only 4 years old but, she has her own set of necessities. I found this Disney Prestige Cinderella costume at few days ago and I just love the quality of this dress so; I ordered it. I can't contain myself when it arrived today! This product is made in polyester and nylon, has an elegant and beautiful petticoat as shown in the picture above plus the cameo is just awesome! The design shows the elegance of the silhouette of Cinderella castle with Cinderella and her Prince Charming on the background.The combination of white and blue Cinderella dress comes with a matching light blue headpiece and a dark blue choker. I am very much pleased with the material and the over-all quality of this dress. It is worth the buck and I highly recommend it to all the mothers out there who wanted to buy a princess dress for their daughter. I was able to show the picture to my niece and she just loves it! Of course, the brothers admire the dress for their sister and I can sensed the excitement from their messages. So, expect another post from me when she finally celebrates her birthday soon. Oh by the way, here is the trailer of the movie: Cinderella so; you will be inspired to buy this dress for your daughter. Happy watching everyone!

Stanchions are Necessary for Crowd Control

The picture below is called stanchion and you can see it everyday along the streets or inside the mall. It is an architectural term applied to a metal support.

Stanchions and velvet rope stanchions are used for many different purposes and that includes crowd control and waiting lines. You can see stanchions in places like banks, restaurants, trade shows and many different other events.Oh well, with this stanchion, the system in waiting-lines are easier to follow.

Protest Against Plans to Ban Online Piracy: SOPA and PIPA

When you used the google today, were you surprised to see the sensorship bar blocking the google word? There is nothing to worry and that is not a virus! Google is participating the protest against the plan to ban online piracy.Giant Websites such as Google and Wikipedia participated the online protest. The blackout is against SOPA ( Stop Online Privacy Act ) which is a House Bill and PIPA ( Protect Intellectual Property Act ), a Senante Bill.

There are arguments that these two Bills were too vague. Also, it will eventually give the government too much power to shut down Websites accused of copyright violations. Their concern is the "what if" the site accused will be later found as innocent, the harm is already done. Not only that, a lot of Website giants will be affected in some ways.

Anyway, I did try to put my cursor on the black bar and this came up: "Tell Congress: Please don't censor the Web" Are you participating the protest? Just curious.

Oleophobic Lenses

I heard about Zenni Optical about two years ago when my friend ordered eyeglasses from this company. She bought two pairs of the cheapest eyeglasses because her kids keep on losing theirs and it's so expensive. Her drastic measure was buy them alternate glasses which are affordable. She was a happy customer because the product lasts longer than what she expected. According to her, the glasses are truly made in good quality.

Now, Zenni Optical has a new coating product of their glasses which is oleophobic lenses. This is my first time to encounter the word and it means fingerprint resistant. How convenient it is to have the oleophobic lenses. It has an anti-reflective coating which is known to be the newest generation of AR coating.

This product is advanced and has the super-hydrophobic or oleophobic coated lenses which are very effective when it comes to repelling the water, oil, dust and fingerprints. According to Zenni Optical, the lenses of this product are clearer and easy to clean. Furthermore, this product reduces reflections so, when you wear it, the product is less noticeable. Are you curious? Check out the Website now and start shopping your glasses. If you buy today, you will get free shipping on $50 orders.

My Targus Tripod

I have a new tripod last Christmas but, until now it is still in the box. I was supposed to buy a DSLR but, because of the catastrophe in my hometown Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, (storm Washi) I diverted my budget to help my friends and relatives. For now, I do not need the DSLR.This is a Targus Tripod designed to stabilize most digital cameras and camcorders. This tripod features quick release plate that makes it a breeze to switch from handheld shooting to tripod and back again. This tripod can extend to a height of 66-inches when in use and folds away to 17-inches for easy storage. It has a rubber grip feet and includes a carry case. I got it for less than $20 with camera sling pouch and 4gb memory card.

Medical Insurance is a Security Blanket

My husband transferred to a new health care provider and he is happy with all the benefits he got. He was able to find a medical insurance with great coverage that he needed most. It has low deductible but, the benefits include the out-patient care, doctor charges, prescriptions, and more.

Health Insurance is a necessity for every family but, not everyone can afford to have it. We work hard to provide the needs of our love ones such as food, clothing and shelter. But, when a family has limited income, insurance is most likely omitted in the family budget which is a big mistake. We should understand that we secure our family when we have insurance. Without the insurance, a family will suffer for the high costs of medical bills. Take note that we are not saving money if we take off the insurance from our family budget. One medical bill will bring our family budget downhill if we have no insurance. It is high time to get one right now!

It is not too late to purchase the insurance today so you will be spared with huge medical bills in the future. If you want to get the affordable and inexpensive medical insurance quotes, just click the links now.

John 3: 16: Tebow Mania

I was in my 6th grade when our teacher, Mrs. Japitana required us to memorize 5 bible passages everyday. One of the verses that I memorize was: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". He was playing in college football when I noticed this writing on his face. A stunning victory during the last game between the Broncos and Steelers made the Tebow haters smoking in anger.

Tim Tebow is a rookie quarterback therefore, all eyes are on him. Anyone new to a profession is subject to scrutiny and for this year, it's Tim Tebow.

I wonder what the Tebow haters are doing at the last few seconds of the fourth quarter? Maybe they mocked his faith. Well, that is truly expected but, LO and Behold!

I bet they have a jaw-dropping moment when 11 seconds touchdown made a huge difference from a Rookie pass! I was watching the TV Online when I found out from different sources that 3:16 is significant: Tebow threw 316 yards and set an NFL record with 31.6 yards per completion. How is that? At least now, most people learn the bible passage of John 3:16 including the Tebow Haters.

Denver Broncos

Who would have ever thought that Denver Broncos will win over Pittsburgh Steelers? I was in a dilemma today because Pittsburgh Steelers is my first favorite team. They are the champion in Superbowl XLlll in 2009. In fact, Steelers won the Superbowl Championship for 7 times. That's an awesome record. In 2011, they are the second best during the XLV Superbowl Championship since Green Bay Packers defeated them. Broncos is the underdog. Remember, the quarterback of Steelers is Ben Roethlisberger, a well respected QB. Broncos has Tim Tebow who played as Quarterback not so long ago. A newbie in professional football and hated by atheists. Today's game is a living testimony that as long as the game is not over, there is HOPE and MIRACLE. The Broncos stun Steelers in over time and for 11 seconds, Tim Tebow passes the ball to the receiver and Thomas run the 80 yards and made the touchdown. What a great game. Let us start tebowing.

Bagyong Sendong: Cagayan de Oro City

It's been a long while that I neglected my blogs. I will suffer if I will not update my Websites because it would mean less income to none. I was too focused on the devastating news about Cagayan de Oro City which was hit by Tropical Storm Washi (Bagyong Sendong) last December 16, 2011.

When I went home last year, my Aunt wanted to buy their rented house. She had no means to buy it and so; she asked my assistance. I can't say NO to my aunt after all, she is very close to me and I wanted her to be happy. The Landlord needed the money for medical purposes too so; we negotiated the amount. My aunt and her family can live the property without paying the rent for three years and if the Landlord cannot return the amount that I gave her, we will create another contract or finalize the property deeds. If that happens, the property will be given to my aunt in fact, in the contract my aunt and her daughter is the beneficiary of the property. I provide the financial assistance to augment their life situation. I was glad that for a year, they managed to stand on their feet and uplift their way of living. Until... Sendong came.

It was around 10PM on the night of Dec.16, 2011, I tried to check on them and there was no answer on the phone. I called my mom to calm her down because she was afraid of the storm. I told her it will be passing Cagayan de Oro soon. Everything seems normal and most of my friends in Cagayan de Oro were on Facebook and described the strong winds and hard rainfall. Then...all at once, all of them stopped updating their walls. I thought they were sleeping.

My friends in the US are the ones in panic and updated their FB walls about the rising water of Cagayan de Oro river. I called my mom again to check the news but, I awakened her. Everything seems fine with her and she told me, there's no electricity. I called my brother in Surigao and asked about his family in Carmen (a flood zone) area but, he said they are alright. I called my aunt and my cousins but, there was no answer....I waited and I prayed hard.

Around 4AM, I was relieved to read a text message from my cousin informing they are all safe. When the water subsided in the morning, they were hungry, in a daze, muddy, cold and wet. My cousin and his family in NHA were the first relatives who check on them. My mama asked them to check the situation of my Aunt and her family. They bought food and gave them money. My aunt can't go back to their place. The mud was too high to tackle. They were tired and they haven't sleep since the night before. The house is still there but, everything inside was totaled!

They are currently living with my Mama and everyone is alive and safe. Material things maybe gone but, we do not worry about it. We handle the situation in a day to day basis. What matter most right now is that all of them are spared from a life threatening situation. And we are so grateful and thankful to God for that.

Fresh from Florida Parade

How was your new year everyone? Where did you celebrate it? Much as I wanted to be in the Time Square, the schedule did not permit us so, hubby and I celebrate it at home. It's all good and we had a wonderful time...watching the countdown in Fox News. Anyway, early that day (Dec. 31), we went to Downtown and see the Citrus Parade. We went there at 9:30 even though the parade started at 11A.M. We found a good parking spot at $5 in Central Avenue. We also found a shady area in Lake Eola at the front of this building. These set of pictures were taken during first part of the parade.The Fresh From Florida Parade is formerly known as Orlando Citrus Parade is an annual activity in Orlando, Florida. This parade celebrates the holidays and two annual college football bowl games: the Champs Sports Bowl and the Capital One Bowl.If you want to see more photos on this event check out Orlando Citrus Parade 2011 and Fresh from Florida Parade. I will be posting more photos later today.Thirty-two years ago, the parade was previously known as the Florida Power (Progress Energy) Super Holiday Parade then, change to the Orlando Citrus Parade. I do not know why the name always change.When Delta Air Lines sponsored the parade seven years ago, it was called The Orlando Citrus Parade. Two years after, the Spherion becomes a major sponsor together with Delta Air Lines and the parade was called The Spherion Orlando Citrus Parade. Maybe it depends who are the sponsors that is why, the name changes oftentimes.So, this parade is called Fresh from Florida Parade because it was sponsored by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. According to the news this event is produced by Florida Citrus Sports.Well, I thought the parade is a bit dull compared to the past parades. The people around us in this location thought there will be more floats decorated with citrus and fresh produce. Guess not!
