My mom was a grade school teacher and a dressmaker in her own dressshop. She was my first mentor and my inspiration. People who knows my mom and who knows me will say I am just like my mom - hard working and focused. She retired 15 years ago, but she stayed active helping me raised my children.
When I was little my mom is my "go to" person. If I have questions about different things - from how to cook stir-fry noodles, how to operate a fruit blender, how to sew clothes and work on my school projects I always call her. My mom was always there to help me find answers to different things I didn’t know.
Right after college, I was very fortunate to get hired as an accountant in a prestigious company in town where I grew up. I was very busy working my way up the corporate ladder and barely had time to see my mom. One day my mom called me on the phone asking me how to use a debit card which the bank gave her after she opened a new account. I went with her to the bank and showed her how to use it. Couple of months later my mom asked me to show her how to use a celphone which she received as a gift. Slowly it dawned on me that my mom and I reversed our roles. Now she was the one asking me to show things that are new to her. I was more than glad to show her how to use a computer, how to operate a microwave, how to get online and use skype.
This year as I am preparing my trip to visit my family in the Philippines, I wanted to get my mom and dad a Lenovo speaker M0520.

|This boy gets up early and sell bread from house to house so he will have allowance for school. Pretty sure the day after he graduates he can afford to start his own bakery business.|
|This boy works in the morning and goes to school at night. Keep working hard to finish school, someday you will be an engineer or architect !|
|Training to become a future athlete !|
Why pay full price for an item you can get half off in another place ? Since I started working two jobs, shopping has become too much for me to do on my spare time. I found online shopping works well with my schedule. What I normally do when I need something, I get up early, still in my pajamas and shop online. Shopping online takes me to different places, see a wide variety of items in a short amount of time. With the comparison shopping technology, online stores provide the opportunity for shoppers to compare prices and get the best deal.
Using popular sites like Become.com you can compare prices and find large selection of products to choose from. The shoppers can also get advice on what they are looking for and also give product reviews .
For Memorial Day Holiday, I looked for walmart patriotic bunting to display in my front porch. I typed the key words in the search engine, the site gave me a lot of items in different designs. I picked up this one (attached). It is just the right size for people to see it.
I also came across a decorative pineapple outside lamp post which I thought was a really nice decorative piece to put in the front porch. I purchased two to place side-by-side on our front door.
While I was online, I also looked for a granite laminate pedestal 53” to replace the one piece that broke when we moved to our new house. I have two pedestals and I put a glass top on it and decorated it with two lamp shades and couple of picture frames. We used to have it in our hallway, but since one is broken, the glass top and the pedestal has been sitting in the garage.
I still go to the mall whenever I get a chance, nothing can beat the fun of going from store to store and try on clothes and shoes. With my petite size, I find it hard to find clothes that would fit me right and shoes that is comfortable. Other than those two things, a lot of my purchase is done online.
For me, referrals is the best way to find a good realtor. Consider asking friends, neighbors, co-workers and family members if they know or have worked with a realtor who can be trusted and someone who has a good track record and years of experience with the real estate business.
Here are a couple of good questions you may want to ask your prospective realtor - How long have you been in the real estate business ? On the average, how many days did it take you to sell a property ? What are the options if the property is not selling? The realtor’s answers are good indicators of his experience with the real estate business.
Are you looking or selling a property in the New Jersey area ?

I was thrilled when I heard about POWOW Messenger for Android. This app is made for people like me who owns an android phone and who sends a lot of group text messaging, really cool, isn’t it ?
Let me tell you what I did, I went to the App store and downloaded the App – it is FREE ! It took me less than five minutes to download the file and save it on my celphone. I created a short cut on my celphone so I can just click it when I want to use it. The app design is pretty straight and simple, you’ll see up on the top individual text message, group text message, favorites and zipped . ZipIT allows you to Blacklist unwanted texters so you don't see notifications or messages.
It will allow you to create different groups from your contacts. I have friends from different groups, so I created different groups and identified each one of them by a Group name. I made one I called "MC High" for my high school friends, "The Nurses" for my co-workers from the hospital, The WHez from my accounting job, TSS for my special Salitype friends and Fam Bam for my family.
To test the App if it is working, I quickly sent a message to my family saying “ I have a new found friend – Powow” . The message went through and each one of them text me back asking“who is Powow” ? I got their attention and that is a confirmation that the app is working great ! The group text sent a message to everyone in the group informing them that I created a group, and that they could then send a message to the entire group, simply by texting to the number it assigned to us! It also then listed everyone in the group, so everyone could see who was included in the group.
If you find yourself texting a lot, you should give POWOW Messenger for Android a try!
Again it's simple to download from your app store and it is FREE !
Have you tried POWOW Messenger?
Do you do a lot of texting? Could POWOW Messenger help you?

One of the local events my husband loves to attend is the old cars show. To make him happy I went along with him to the event and even brought my camera to show that I support things he enjoys. The truth is the only thing I know about cars is how to drive them and where to put the gas.
We arrived at the show and as soon as I saw the Louie Mattar automobile I fell in love on its details. I snapped as many pictures as I could and engaged in small conversations with the guys as if I know stuff about cars.
|The equipment in the back seat includes an electric stove, a refrigerator, a washing machine, a chemical toilet, an ironing board, a medicine cabinet, and a kitchen sink. All of these appliances can be stored under the back seat cushions.|
It took Louie Mattar 5 years and $75,000 to make his dream a reality. But this car was worth far more to Louie. He said "If I sold that car and had all the money in the bank, I wouldn’t meet the important people I do. That's worth all the money in the world".
