Liking This Weather

I so love the weather during December to January. The cool wind somehow adds the feel of the holidays. It’s the time when don’t used Ac or even an electric fan during the night and we can even sleep with blankets covering our whole bodies but still feeling cold. I like it so much! I hope the weather will be like this all throughout the year, haha! So we won’t need ACs anymore. Anyway, for those who have AC units, this is also the time where they do their usual inspection and cleaning. They get the services of companies like HVAC Oregon to do it for them since the units are not being used. It’s so tricky to own heaters and AC somehow, huh? So I guess wishing that the weather is cool throughout the year make sense somehow, LOL!

Food Business: Why Not?

I always love cooking. I think it runs in the family. And I don’t want to sound bragging but a lot of people have tasted the food that we cook and no one ever said bad things about how they tasted. A lot have even suggested that we put up a family owned food business or catering services. Well, why not? We actually thought about it but the lack of expertise with the nitty-gritty stuff and of course the needed capital have somehow halted us to pursue the idea. But honestly, we plan to pursue it somehow, someday. I’ve seen how technologies in the field of concessions have changed, and with how custom concessions successfully make cooking business easier now, I think we can possibly do our business plan and start our own concession business anytime soon. Honestly, I’m getting excited already. I'm even envisioning our own business name on catering tucks someday! :)

General Cleaning

The year is ending and we are now facing yet another year. And I believe like me, most of moms now are having their general house cleaning. As matter of fact I’ve been seeing some garage sale here and there, even inside our compound. New year means new beginnings for most of the people so they want their house to be free from all sorts of disorder and garbage. Some would even have an Upholstery Cleaning Herndon to make sure that their upholstered furniture are clean as the New Year arrives. A clean and orderly house is a simple way to make a good start in the new year right?

Yearend Discounts and Sale

Christmas has just been over but the Holiday sale isn’t over yet. And this is what most people anticipates, year-end sales everywhere! As for me, I’ve been planning to buy double deck frame from our nearby furniture shop and I’m so glad to hear that aside from the discount for the frame, they are also having a mattress sale which so timely. I was surprised when I called them and told me that I can get my frame and mattress package at on Php5,000.00 that’s around $116. I’m so excited to visit the shop and buy my bedroom package, hehe.

Don't Get Broke This Christmas

With five days before Christmas, are you now battling the Christmas rush? Well, I think some people now are hitting the mall to do their last minute Christmas shopping. They say that Christmas are for kids so I guess some people are spending a lot for gifts to give to their loved ones and most especially to the kids they love. I just hope that they won’t max out their credit card. Well, you can avoid this, you can opt to save with Personal Creations coupon codes when buying gifts for kids. Christmas should not be the reason that you’ll end up broke after, lol!

As Fab As Big Girls

I like seeing my daughter wearing little girls shorts. I find her cute. It’s the perks of having a daughter. You can make her wear anything that’s in and fashionable. As a matter of fact there are even dresses, skirts, tops and even jeggings (leggings-like jeans) for little girls. I even bought her a new pair of skinny jeans. Little girls now can be as fashionable as their moms, LOL!

House Blessing

I read an article about house blessing or some call it house warming rituals that home owners usually perform when they have acquired or is planning to live on a new home. There are numbers of rituals like each guest would bring firewood and build fires in all the available fireplaces, boiling of milk to throwing of coins. But homeowners need not buy gold coins for this to make it extra special. Ordinary coins will do. Also some make loud noises during house blessings. They clang pans, ring a bell, drum, or other noise (even play your favorite loud music) and send away all unwanted influences.

Getting Organized

Just the past two weeks, I was able to buy some useful and much needed stuff in the house. Last week, I bought a TV stand and yesterday I was able to buy the kid’s closet at a really bargain price. Bought it at Php1,700 but the transpo to the store to our house cost me 100 so I shed out a total of 1,800. My next goal is to visit the furniture shop near us to canvass of customized cabinet and bookshelves. Then hopefully the week before Christmas, I’ll be able to buy new curtains, cushion covers and futon cover for the sofa. I’m happy to see that our house is looking better now that I’m at home.

Jamaica Could Be Your Prime Destination

Jamaica is a small but popular vacation island. Over the years our awareness of Jamaica has grown. One of the first things I can remember was the movie about the Jamaican bobsled team, as of course Jamaican does not have snow so the entrance of a Jamaican bobsled team in the Olympics was news around the world. Over time Jamaica has become known for its premium Blue Mountain coffee, popular reggae music and the famous musician, Bob Marley, and more recently the famous sprinter, Usain Bolt. What Jamaica has long been known for is its attraction as a vacation destination, and in particular its great beaches.

When in comes to resorts, Jamaica has a lot to offer since it’s the largest island in the Caribbean. It’s surrounded with by the beautiful Caribbean salt water sea and has white sand beaches along the coastal plains. It’s the place where you can find Blue Mountains inland and the seventh largest natural harbor in the world, the Kingston Harbour.

There are a lot of Jamaica hotels that tourists can choose from. The best are located on prime pieces of the Caribbean coastline. Breezes Resorts have resorts on various coveted areas of Jamaican coastline, and all of their resorts offer excellent all inclusive Jamaica packages that will provide everything you will need for your stay there. Their all inclusive vacation packages include your food, your accommodations, your drinks, tips and gratuities, an excellent selection of resort activities, as well as your hotel transfers and airport taxes.

I have been thinking a lot about a Jamaican vacation at one of these resorts. In particular I was looking at the area of Ocho Rios, which is on Jamaica's north coast. This is a busy tourist town and cruise port that provides tourists with a great place to shop and explore. It is also close to the Dunn's River Falls which is a very popular Jamaica tourist spot. I don't think I would like to stay right in Ocho Rios at one of the Ocho Rios hotels, as I think the beaches and the town will be very busy. Breezes has a great option in the nearby area of Runaway Bay that looks like an excellent alternative, and the resort is located right on a long section of beach and has its own private golf course. It’s definitely a place that I would love to visit someday.
