Travel & Vacation Deals

There are plenty of deals emailed to me daily as if they’re reminding me to book our vacation as early as now. I’ve signed up with companies who has list of member who are supplier of goods and travels in discounted rates, Just seeing 50% off on their offers make me look at the deal more seriously because opportunities open its arms to people who want to experience luxury travel without burdening their budget. This is so true with ordinary people who save money for a long time before they can even have vacation in popular world destinations. 

With deals offered they can have travel tickets, nice accommodation in good places like beach hotels, villas or Disney vacation in orlando hotels with free breakfast and a lot more freebies. The choices are plenty for those who really want to book early and enjoy great savings but they should also be aware of the travel agencies that handle these promos. It’s always better to search and get to know of the company that offers before buying the whole deal; after all you always have a choice.

Dream Farm

The husband dreams of having a vacation house in our province where we will stay every weekend and look after our farm. He used to tell this to me when we’re sitting by the couch and watching tv. It’s actually possible as we have small lands in my Mom’s hometown province where we have vegetable and fruit crops, it’s just that we have no time to go there more often than every 4 months. We’re so busy with the kids, our work and very active in our church activities.

Last month he told me that he would be happy to raise some chickens in our farm. If that’s possible he’ll start buying backyard chicken coops for his planned poultry farm. I’ve seen some online stores where we can buy small, medium and large sizes. If only we can have it here on our place but we’re living between urban and rural areas and they’re a little strict so we cannot have more than half a dozen chickens in our backyard. I told the husband that in time we’ll have our dream farm but for now we still can afford the time to manage such tedious task.


Musical Instrument Inventory

We had an inventory in our church on all our musical instruments and it came to our attention that we need to repair or buy a new amplifier and guitar. Our drum set though old still sounds good and in good condition so priority will be on the first mentioned instruments. I heard about the distinct quality of engl fireball from my friend and when I searched it over the net I realized that it could really serve our church’ congregational and praising song. 

We need the highest quality we can get because the amplifier that we use serves a lot of our instrument that it sometimes fails to perform as expected. When you buy quality goods it will be able to serve you more years that low quality items. We’re canvassing various brands from different stores and we’ll present it on our next meeting so congregation will decide on the kinds that we really need for our congregational praising.

New School Bag for Josh

Just when it’s only 2 months before the classes ends Josh’ school bags retired. We had no choice but to buy him a new one but this time not as expensive as his former bag which stood him up and carried his things for two years. Good service for a school bag but not a good timing I should say. Anyway after buying the new bag I searched and looked for nice jansport school backpacks online and found that they’re having discount sales. 

Josh likes their bags because of style and durability and told me that I can always buy him another one for backup or for our out-town travel where he would need plenty of things to carry. Even though we have plenty of backpacks already I love buying another because it can also be used for our camp meeting travels or vacation in faraway places.


Taking Care of His Toys

I’ve been surfing yesterday night looking for prices of digital cameras when my little boy asked me if I could search for his favorite yoyo. Since he saw a competition of yoyo in one of the shows that he’s watching he’s been searching for the same toy that the contestant was using in the show. He has some regular toys of that kind but he’s pining for the one with solid spin axle system that will give him a nice exhibition play. He also wants to see the one with 2 different bearings as he heard it from his classmates. 

Boys really love toys and this little boy of mine is starting to show fondness for collecting good and quality toys. He’s also making an effort to arrange and keep all his toys to my designated drawers because he learned from me that doing so will make his toys last longer. Since he wants to keep his fave toys for a long time he’s following my advice. Hope he’ll stay the same when he grows up.

A Great Duvet Size Chart For Your Bed Linen

Before choosing a duvet for your bed, consider your sleeping preferences. Once you have determined how you like to sleep, you will easily find the right duvet for you. When choosing a duvet you need to consider three important factors; the size of your duvet, the weight of your duvet and the filling of your duvet. Each of these make a difference to your comfort. 

The size if your duvet is very important to the comfort of your sleep. On a cold winters night you need a duvet that is big enough to keep you warm. On the other hand you also do not want to feel like you are drowning in your duvet. You should match the size of your duvet to the size of your bed. The White Company has a convenient duvet size chart enabling you to find the measurements of the duvet for your bed size. For a cot bed a duvet should have the dimensions 47” x 55”, single bed duvet 55” x 79”, double 79” x 79”, king 89” x 87”, superking 102” x 87” and emperor 114” x 92”.

When looking for a duvet the weight of the duvet should be light. Whether a duvet is heavy or light does not represent how warm it may be. Lightweight duvets can insulate your body from the cold just as effectively as heavier ones. The warmth of the duvet all depends on the filling of the duvet. 

A duvet will only be as comfortable and as warm as its filling will allow it to be. You must therefore choose carefully. Fillings made from natural fibres, goose, down, wool, silk or cotton is a popular chose as they are the most comfortable for a good nights sleep. Your body will be able to breathe while your body heat is trapped keep you warm throughout the night. Because your duvet is breathable you will stay warm in winter and cool in the summer without having to change. 

The White Company duvets come in a range of these sizes. For example, buy this comfortable goose down duvet in single, double, king, super king, or emperor size. 

Shop for duvets from The White Company and choose the size that’s right for your home.

iPhone 5 Rumors

The release of the iPhone 4S was a huge success that its sales are sweeping its competitors by storm. Apple sold 4 million units in just three days after it was launch making it the fastest selling gadget available in the market today.

• Its 8 megapixel camera that allows users to take pictures that is equal in quality with high-end point-and-shoot cameras or even a digital SLR
• Its dual core A5 chip which makes it faster than its predecessors
• Its iCloud technology that allows the syncing of files between iOS 5 devices
• And of course the popular personal assistant, Siri, that comes with the new iOS 5 of the iPhone 4S.

These are just some of the features of the iPhone 4S that earned its title as the “Most Amazing iPhone yet.”

And so for 2012, gadget lovers and Apple fanatics are all waiting for the release of the next generation of iPhone, the iPhone 5. When iPhone 4S was launched last October, consumers are actually expecting the release of iPhone 5 but instead what they got was just an upgrade of iPhone 4, with a better camera and processor. This added to the anxiety of Apple lovers out there which makes iPhone 5 one of the top gadgets being look forward to this year.

We really can’t tell what the iPhone 5 will look like or what will be the features that will be introduced until it is release but there are a lot of rumors circulating on some of the possible features that goes with the new iPhone and here is a summary of those:

1. Apple has been consistent with the display size of their iPhones and they maintained it at only 3.5 inches even if competitors like Samsung are going for the bigger and wider display. Rumor has it that the new iPhone 5 will have a bigger display this time at 4.3 inches. The screen is said to be made by LG and will use the same material as LG’s HDTVs.
2. If Apple will be increasing the display size for the iPhone 5, it follows that the screen resolution would also increase so as not to compensate the pixel density and so it is safe to assume that a 1080×720 resolution is suitable for a 4.3 inch display.
3. iPhone 5 will be the fastest iPhone after its release as it will be utilizing a quad core A6 processor. Aside from speed, the A6 processor will also help in efficiently using the power at it said to extend battery life thus allowing 20 hours of video call by 3g and 10 hours of video call by 4g.
4. iPhone 5 is also said to be capable of 4G LTE technology, which makes video, and voice calls at lighting speed.
5. The shape of the iPhone 5 will also be longer and wider (but thinner) to accommodate the larger screen. The material that will be use for the casing is aluminum unibody as oppose to the glass that was use for iPhone 4S.
6. The new iPhone 5 will come with the new waterproof technology using Liquipel waterproof coating. The Liquipel waterproof coating will be pre-applied to the phone and it is invisible to the naked eye. This coating will really make the device water proof at it will prevent water from getting in contact with the device and all the other hardware parts inside the unit.

So when will the new iPhone be release? According to a reliable source, the iPhone 5 is already close to going into production so it is predicted to be announce in Apple’s annual developer’s conference in June and will be release in the market come July or August.

Now I am sure Apple lovers all can’t wait to have all of this rumors confirmed and have their hands on the next generation of iPhone.

Piano Restored to Original Beauty

Glad to see that our post war grand piano was beautifully repaired by my brother. Three of his kids enrolled in a music school to study piano lessons and since they will need piano for their practice my brother decided to repair our old piano not only for his kids’ usage but for sentimental purpose as well. Dad bought it after the war in the late 40’s because he wanted to sing alongside the piano. 

Though he paid a sizeable amount of money for the restoration it’s all worth it when you actually see it now. Anyway brother needs some piano hinges to support heavy loads when needed and I offered to look and canvas for him. I’m always online and I can compare and search through online shops for the things that I want to buy.

Preventing Pest in Our Homes

We should always maintain a clean environment for our family because it’s a key to living a healthy life. To do this regular cleaning and disposal of waste and unnecessary things should be done to prevent your home from being infested with cockroach and some others. Nobody would welcome any pest to share their house as they’re dirty and can bring various kinds of diseases. I’m always telling this to my kids and asking them to do their share of maintaining the cleanliness of the house by starting up with their own things. 

Cockroach is dangerous not only on foods but also on papers and clothes. Just a smell of this pest can make my stomach throw up so if ever this happens to me I will ask the advice of professional experts in the likes of Houston Pest Control to deal with extermination of roach problem. They know how to handle this thing with professional expertise of studying the cause, searching for breeding or nesting areas and planning on how they would eradicate the roaches from their houses.
