Unusual Time to Sleep

My hubby and I went to bed early last night. It was before seven o'clock in the evening when we hit our slumberland. We both got tired that early. My hubby hasn't been feeling good and neither have I. He woke up early yesterday morning and finished mowing the lawn. My body was also sore from weeding the garden the day before but I continued working outdoors yesterday afternoon. Right after washing the dishes my body started asking for some rest but I didn't fall asleep until ten o'clock at night. My hubby was already snoring but when I asked him if he was sleeping, he would answer me :-).

Headphones

My old headset is about seven years old now. It is still partially functional but is falling apart. When I was in the Philippines, my hubby decided to buy me a new set of headphones. He felt pity on me and was frustrated at the same time when they kept falling off his head when he was chatting with me online from half way around the world. Even though the new ones are not high end head gear, they look like it to me. They look much better than my old set and also have a much clearer sound. They actually look a lot like the Bose IE2 Audio Headphones that I found at Musician's Friend. It has been almost six months before I started using the new headphones that my hubby bought me because I thought the old ones were still OK. I just took them out of the box a few hours ago to hook up to my new laptop. Along with the new headphones, my hubby also bought me a new webcam

He Needs to Learn Bisaya/Cebuano

My hubby and I have been thinking about moving to the Philippines in the future. One of the primary things he needs to do is to learn how to speak Bisaya or Cebuano because we will be living somewhere in Mindanao. It is pretty much a given to learn some of the language where you will live, right? Basically, Bisaya and Cebuano are the same thing. There are some regional differences but usually when people say “Bisaya” they generally are talking about Cebuano, a language that originated in Cebu.

My hubby knows a few words but he needs to learn more if he wants the local people to treat him better and be more friendly to him. People in my village treat him well but it will be better if he is able to communicate with them using the native language. If he becomes fluent in Bisaya/Cebuano, he might find it more enjoyable living there in the Philippines.

Since my hubby likes to read, I don't think learning Bisaya/Cebuano would be a big problem. I will buy him an English-Bisaya dictionary and then I will try talking to him in Bisaya on a regular basis.

Normalcy – is it a right or a privilege?

For all we know living is hard even in the light normalcy yet how harder it was with people who are not blessed with it? Personally, I cannot imagine it. Seeing them especially kids with their special needs made me feel obliged to help them in one way or another, and that’s why I am sharing this good news to the world which I know will help make a difference in the life of these special children.

Agnitus is the good news I was talking about. It is a curriculum based learning program that is now available in the apps store giving learning struggles goodbye and learning smooth, fun and more effective. Thus, this news needs not just a share but definitely a loud applause!

Wholesale Vinyl Banners

Vinyl banners are built to stand up to the elements. Even though how tough they were built, they do wear in due time. The market today is full of vendors that supply both custom labels and wholesale vinyl banners. In order to be competitive in that market, you need to think the best marketing strategy you can think of to stay on top. Always think of the eye catching marketing solutions to attract customers and even before buying and creating an ad, it is best to consider all factors for vinyl printing. Make sure to create an attractive ad that would make passersby take a second look and check out the details of the campaign. Always consider the target audience and ad location as well. Not all printing companies can achieve excellent print results so only trust the experts. Have your ad printed at Zoo Printing.

When did you last say "I love you Ma"?

Talking about my relationship with my mother, I can't say that it's perfect. We are close to each other and even now that I got married every time I call her and talk to her she has a lot of stuff to ask and to advice me. Sometimes she asked what are the kind of clothes I bought, the weather here if I can survive and of course the food and advising me not to drive fast. In short say we have a harmonious relationship towards our mother. I think all of us. I never heard of any bad feelings from my siblings towards our parents. I don't say much I love you to my parents when talking to each other but every time I wrote a letter I always say I love you. Anyway words are not much to express our feelings it's the action that matters most.

Surface Hair Health Art

I was given the opportunity to review Surface Hair products. I received Curls Shampoo, Curls Conditioner, Curl Whip Mousse and Trinity Dry Shampoo. The Surface Curls line of products was just released early this month. They are made of organic cocoa butter, babassu seed oil and amaranth.  The Surface Curls products are rich in vitamin K providing your hair with a healthy elasticity and control while containing Omega 3 and 6 fatty acid moisturizers. The Surface Curls line is for all curl textures and hair types.

I love almost everything with cocoa ingredients. The cocoa smell is soothing and that is one of the things that I like about in the Surface Curls. I have been using the Surface Curls products for only a week and am loving them. These will be the only products in line that I will be using for quite sometime. The Curl Whip Mousse is interesting. This is the first whip mousse that I have ever used so far. The texture of the product is like a men's shaving cream except that this one is for hair. When using the Curl Whip Mousse, you have to shake the product well first and apply a generous amount on your damp hair.  Using this, my hair stays soft and holds firm all day long.

The Trinity Dry Shampoo is the second dry shampoo I have tried. This kind of shampoo is great for on-the-go individuals. This shampoo will last me a long time since I am a stay at home wife. I don't really have the use for it that much and am actually planning to give it to my hubby's daughter who is a nurse.  Since my hubby and I have a few upcoming trips this summer, this shampoo will be very handy for those occasions.

Trinity Dry Shampoo features an invisible, organic mineral infusion of volcanic ash and over 50 other naturally occurring minerals that create a crystalline structure. Combined with ocean water and lemon extract, the mineral rich ash cleanses and refreshes the scalp while absorbing free radicals and protecting color.

Surface Hair is a high performance, salon exclusive collection of product lines that respects personal health and the earth. They are made with organic, gluten-free, sulfate-free, 100 Percent vegan protein and paraben-free ingredients. Surface Hair has been launched in 2008 and has since expanded to include Surface Men and Surface Skin, meeting market demand for products that perform yet offer sustainable, responsible eco-smart choices for clients. Surface is available exclusively at professional salons throughout the US and Canada. You can check them out at www.surfacehair.com for more information.

I am under no obligation to give either a positive or negative review and the opinions are strictly those of myself and my husband. You may noticed that the majority of reviews are quite positive. In our opinion that is because those manufacturers with the best products are much more likely to give out free samples in order to promote their products.
