Favourite Quotes from The Notebook Movie



“Our souls were one, if you must know and never shall they be apart; with splendid dawn, your face aglow i reach for you and find my heart” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“You are the answer to every prayer I've offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I don't know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have.” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I'm sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you. Noah” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we've lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we've found each other. And maybe each time, we've been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.” 
― Nicholas SparksThe Notebook

Who Says Life Stops When You Get Old? 4 Activities For the Active Pensioner

Reaching retirement age isn't the end of your life, it's simply the closing of a chapter and the start of a new beginning.

Passing this important milestone in life doesn't mean that you suddenly need to put on your flat cap and talk about 'the kids of today'. To the contrary! Retirement gives you the time to really enjoy your passions in life, and opens up doors to new, exciting experiences.

Research shows that people aged 65 and above spend a whopping 10 hours sitting still each and every day - that's crazy! The more active you are, the more you can help yourself live a long, healthy and happy life, so what are you waiting for?

1. Walking



Walking is perhaps the most low impact exercise you can do and yet it's so good for you!

Walking doesn't have to mean hiking the mountains or trekking through Peru, it could be as simple as strolling around your local park or taking a jaunt to the shops.

If you're physically able, try to walk a bit further each day, pushing yourself to become more active. Why? Because walking is one of the best activities for keeping you healthy in your later years.

Walking not only helps your body stay strong physically, but also psychologically, with a clear reduction in the risk of dementia amongst those who lead a more active lifestyle.

2. Bike Riding



Does walking seem too easy? Then step it up a notch. Bike riding is a great activity for pensioners wanting to remain active throughout retirement.

As we age, we lose muscle mass which can cause all sorts of problems such as loss of balance and reduced bone density which can leave us susceptible to falls and injury. Bike riding can encourage better balance, and can help build lean muscle mass, making us physically stronger.

In terms of psychological health, bike riding has been found to act as an antidepressant amongst older people.

3. Volunteering



Although your brain may still be active, your body may not be and if you suffer from limited mobility, find it challenging to complete everyday tasks and use mobility aids such as a stair lift in the home, you may wish to look into activities that are less physical.

Volunteering at local events is a perfect choice, and it can often be done by those in wheelchairs, too. Studies show that volunteering is an excellent way to boost brain power, socialise, meet new people and it's been found that those who volunteer frequently report a higher quality of life than those who do not.

4. Skiing



This certainly isn't for everyone, but if you're fit and healthy and open to trying new things, then what have you got to lose?

Skiing isn't just for the kids, as Clyde Getty (the oldest athlete training for the 2014 Winter Olympics at 52 years old) demonstrates perfectly. Just 3 months of ski lessons could see your leg strength increased by 16 percent and your jump height increased by 6 percent, which really goes a long way towards improving balance and building muscle.

A craving for adventure doesn't stop just because you've aged. If anything, it just becomes stronger, so arrange a taster course at your local dry slope and see how it feels!

Regardless of your health and ability, there are activities out there to suit you. Getting older doesn't mean foregoing socialisation and disregarding your interests, it just means you may need to look into alternative activities that your body will allow. The activities above are just a small selection of the hobbies and interests pensioners all across the country have. Try different things and see what makes you happy.

Being Healthy, Our Gift To Nature

      

Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I feel a certain happiness I can not explain. I think that joy comes from having met people from across the miles with the same love for nature and the outdoors. Life has never been the same after The Salitype Society touched my world. With our unique purposeful sisterhood, my life has become more meaningful and as I face each new morning I am hopeful that this world will be a better place all because we are helping make kids' dreams come true.I sound like a broken record but it is true- your friendship is a treasure beyond compare. Thank you for inspiring me to always make A DIFFERENCE.

I have become someone who views being healthy as a gift to mother nature. Keeping our bodies fit to take care of creation is a must. 

me and my brother ready for some athletic work-out

 So now, I take the time to move around and keep my blood circulating well. I do regular exercise and explore the great outdoors whenever I can.




And inspired by my TSS buddies, I eat more fruits and vegetables. It keeps my skin glowing and my mind always alert! I think there is no growing old with friends who guide you to fitness!


And so I welcome each new day as a challenge to keep staying healthy and a GIFT  to pass on to the rest of creation because LIFE is too precious to waste just lying in bed and doing nothing.

Join us as we continue our lives with a unique and purposeful friendship that drives us to good health. There isn't any friendship better than it I suppose.

Have a blessed day!

Kare-Kare (Stew Meat)



by: Chay

Growing up in the city with working parents, my siblings and I were assigned daily chores to help the family. When I arrived home from school my chore was cooking for the family. My mom would create a weekly menu for me to follow and shopped for the ingredients. Most of the meals were stir-fry vegetables with meat and a few soup recipes. These kinds of meals are very common in the Philippines, the country I grew up in.

Little did I know a love for cooking was growing inside.

Most of the time, I follow recipes to create dishes, but if some of the ingredients are not available, or my husband objects, I use substitutes. These improvised dishes work out as much as the real ones.

While at the store the other day I thought about making a Filipino stew meat dish called kare-kare (pronounced curry-curry). It is normally served with shrimp paste (bagoong), but shrimp paste was not available. Besides, my American husband doesn’t like the smell of shrimp paste, but that’s a whole different story (lol). Even without using the traditional shrimp paste the kare-kare tasted ssoooo good.

Ingredients:

Oxtail or Pork

Garlic

Onion

Pechay (bokchoy)

Beans

Eggplant

Peanut butter (3 spoons)

Kare-kare mix


1. Boil the meat in a separate pan.

2. Saute garlic, onion

3. Add the boiled meat

4. Add the string beans, eggplant, and add the bokchoy last.

5. Put the kare-kare mix

6. Add peanut butter

7. Seasoned with a little bit of salt and pepper.

8. Served with bagoong (shrimp paste)

Saving lives with dating sites

Those dating sites you signed up for last week could save your life.  Well, not the sites, exactly, but the person you meet and marry could be the reason you overcome disease or illness.  New research from Harvard is causing some doctors to believe that instead of tossing chemotherapy treatments at cancer patients, they should first make sure that the person’s spouse, family, and friends are all ready to provide support.

Professor David Kissane studies cancer patients from the psychiatry department of Australia’s Monash University, and his research leads him to believe that being married can be just effective as chemical anticancer treatments.  His reasoning?  Since humans are so tribal and community-driven, the most fulfilling connections can quite literally save our lives (Jaslow 2013).  It’s not just cancer that is beaten by the power of love–the likelihood of having a heart attack also decreases when a person is married, but increases if they are single or widowed.

“We don't just see our study as an affirmation of marriage,” says Dr. Paul Nguyen, the lead author of Harvard’s study.  Being married certainly has positive effects, but the constant presence of family members and friends can have nearly the same results.  It’s all about how loved and supported the patient feels, along with the practical steps that loved ones can encourage, such as going to doctor’s appointments and trying different types of treatments.

“Overall, the analysis found married cancer patients live longer than their single or widowed counterparts” (Jaslow 2013).  It may be that dating site reviews will become apart of your treatment plan for a longer life. According to the study, which was published by Dr. Nguyen and his co-author Dr. Ayal Aizer, single cancer patients were 47% more likely to have received incorrect or insufficient treatment for their disease.

Making Photo Collage at Fotor.com

My World: Hiking and The Ocean

What am I up too lately? Well, same old.....taking a refuge in nature every weekend, or every chance I could get! That means hiking, boogie boarding, and snorkeling.

The very little time I am home ( little because I so love the outdoors, I prefer to enjoy nature every chance I get), I spend some time blogging. Blogging has taught me some apps online. Because I did not want to overload my posts with too many pictures, I learned how to make photo collage. I do not have any apps in my computer, so I use the photo collage maker at www.fotor.com.
screenshot of www.fotor.com, I click on "collage" to go to the collage app

When you go to fotor.com, you will see 3 choices: "open a photo" , "cards" or "collage". I choose collage. I have not used the other apps in fotor such as photo editing or making cards. As what I had mentioned before, photo editing is not my forte, since I hardly have time to sit in a computer. I always prefer to spend more of my free time out of the doors. Though it looks nice and very rewarding too, but maybe, I'll go into that deeper when I have more free time. When would that be? I do not know! Haha! Anyway, going back to collage making at fotor.com, this is how it looks like after I clicked the "collage" app.

Stay Healthy and Happy in Your Fifties and Beyond


Staying healthy and happy is important at any age and that shouldn’t change just because you may have spotted a few grey hairs.  As we get older our lives are affected by change, career changes, retirement, children leaving the family home, losses and physical changes can all take their toll.
It is important to find a way of dealing with the changes positively and finding a way of remaining healthy and happy that fits with your personality. By doing so you’ll be able to manage your emotional and physical health far more effectively and ensure you live your life to the fullest, regardless of your age.

Healthy and Happy Tips
Being healthy both physically and mentally will help you to cope with life, whatever it throws at you. We have a series of tips that can keep you on top form, even when times get tough and it’s easier to lose perspective.

The Positive Outlook
Positivity breeds contentment and it is much easier to remain happy and upbeat if you focus on the things you have to be grateful for. Taking things for granted is a mistake, take the time to appreciate what you have and the experiences you’ve had. Looking on the bright side is much better for you so fight off the grumps by always looking for the sides that are worth being happy for. The silver lining will always be there and facing major challenges in life is always easier if you can reflect and learn from them.

Staying Active
Exercise is important regardless of your age and the limitations you may begin to experience. Find a form of exercise that you can achieve on a daily basis. It could be a walk around the neighbourhood, hopping on a bike, joining a dance class or lifting weights. Check with your doctor before you begin any form of exercise but once you have the all clear you’ll find you get stronger and increase your stamina so you will be able to increase the intensity of your exercise.

Exercising the Brain
Keep your brain active. Once you stop work you don’t have to resign yourself to watching television and drinking coffee with friends. Take up some new hobbies and always read, reading is excellent for the brain along with puzzles and board games. You can also benefit from technology, get online and try out some games, buy a games console too. There are plenty of games that will interest and excite you.  Don’t turn your back on technology just because you aren’t a teenager.

Eat Well
Watching what you eat is a great way of feeding your energy levels. Look for local sourced foods and eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. If you eat well your energy levels will increase which will make it easier to get up and exercise and take part in all the activities that work the brain and put a smile on your face.

Face Your Problems Head On
If you do experience any problems you should face them instead of running away. Once you take positive action you’ll feel happier and reassured that the issue is being worked through. Speak to your friends, family or your doctor. You may also require additional supplements and support which you can buy today.

Just Writing

Hi sisters,

It is one of those days when I am suddenly blue. What makes me blue on a Monday? I could enumerate more than three reasons yet as always when I think of you and our friendship and the simple joys you always share about simply being alive to see the wonders of the world I feel too blessed. I breathe in and out and then I suddenly feel okay.

Love,
Kulasa

Wishing you all a happy day across the miles.

A Sisterhood made in Heaven


I read somewhere that  your sister isn't always your blood relation. Sometimes it's that friend who undertands you and loves you and accepts you no matter how crazy you sometimes are.


 ...and that person who constantly brings color to your life..


 and keeps you company from sun up to sun down, listening to your inner thoughts and dreams.

Ours is a unique sisterhood that conquers time and distance...


Happy birthday to our dear "Cherrific" sister who inspires us with her Sweetmemoirs and simply shares
our dream to make a huge difference..

It is easy being angelic with you around and we believe our sisterhood was made in heaven ♡

Fri-date With A Teen


I had a Fri-date with my teen-age son. He had pizza, chicken and a huge choco cold drink while I had Mandarin salad, chicken and corn soup with a glass of water.



I had some pizza too while we talked about his activities in school and life in general.
As always I asked him to concentrate on his studies and he replied "yes of course mommy" ...


See that grin that's half a man, half a baby?...it makes my life meaningful!

Happy parenting and playing guardians everyone!
Let us always remember to eat well and 
LOVE A LOT.

The Prize and Joy of Exercising

"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in."- John Muir
Tranquility and Peacefulness at Mono Lake State Tufa Reserve, California
The words of John Muir, a Scottish-American naturalist and early advocate of preservation in the USA, have been part of my inspiration to seek always the beauty of nature. Nature to me is very therapeutic. Whenever I am alone and out in nature, I feel a deep sense of peacefulness and contentment that I am being taken care very well of by our loving Creator. In my heart and mind, I have everything and there is nothing that I want more personally. I feel the greatest joy of how great our God is for giving us this wonderful and beautiful world. Nature is my healer, physically, emotionally and spiritually. 
Alien Kingdom of Tufa at Mono Lake, CA
It is my love for nature that motivates me to stay healthy and strong. My goal to exercise is not to show off a Beach Body in skinny two piece suits in the summer, but to keep my physical fitness or even further improve my fitness level so I can climb more mountains, so I can experience more canyons, and so I can surf ride more waves in the sea, more so when I will be past 60! 
Enjoying the Diversity of Planet Earth in California
I have several dream hikes in my bucket list, and they are my motivators to actively follow our Extreme Body Workout routines. These past 7 days, we took more than 160,000 steps covering almost 100 miles and climbing more than 10,000 ft total in the local mountains and canyons of San Diego. Yet, at every end of every day, 
Jumping for Joy at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve
we still have the energy to jump for joy while waiting for sunset by the ocean. Exercising outside in the middle of the healing gifts of nature makes me feel that my body, heart and mind gets stronger. In each of our hikes, we feel we are getting more confident with our physical capabilities and fitness level to do some of our dream hikes. We have 90 Day Review to make all our preparations and assess our health. We are hoping that in the next 90 days, we will be in the best shape of our "aging life" :) Staying healthy is a common goal that I and my husband share. We are not into dieting, but we are into healthy eating and maintaining an active lifestyle. For the prize and joy of exercising does not only bring us good health but also brings us happiness beyond compare whenever we are OUT of the DOORS exploring our beautiful natural world. 
Stay healthy- eat right and exercise! Let us climb more mountains, explore more canyons and ride more waves in the sea. Life is beautiful, I hope you find it.

Immigrating to Los Angeles, USA

Pacific West Coast
I used to think before that America is a place I could never lived. The stories I heard from TV shows, from hearsay, from movies, were enough to convince me that the United States of America is not my kind of place. Until, one day in 2002, upon the encouragement of my late mom, I took a vacation to America. Before I left home, all my friends told me to take pictures of Disneyland, of Holywood, and of Las Vegas. I said yes to all their requests because frankly those were also just the places I knew about the USA. None of the places I knew could give me a reason to migrate to America. 

On my first full day in USA, following the wishes of my friends, I was at Disneyland. However, the long line and the crowd made me dizzy. All of a sudden, I found myself having a throbbing headache. I did not want to spoil the party, especially that the entrance fee we paid was expensive. I simply asked my closest friend if he could drop me somewhere close by, where there are less people, for me to breathe some fresh air. He asked, "where would you rather be, Betch?" I replied: "By the sea, is there a place close to Disneyland that is by the sea?" I was dropped at Laguna Beach, close enough to Disneyland where the rest of my group were enjoying the happiest place on Earth. At Laguna Beach, I fell in love with the city that is bordered by the rugged Pacific west coastline. There, the dream to move to America was born, to strike a balance between work in the city and nature. I started doing the steps to migrate to USA as soon as my vacation ended and was back to the Philippines.

A year later, when I went back to Los Angeles, I was prepared to try my luck migrating to America. One of the first things I did was to consult an immigration lawyer. There are many immigration lawyers in Los Angeles, and it is tough deciding who to consult. Finding a reliable and experienced law firm such as the immigration law firm of Garg and Associates is important to get a realistic immigration counseling more specific to the applicant's situation. I felt I was lucky enough to get the right advise what to do to increase my chances of migrating. Per the advise of the immigration lawyer in Los Angeles, I had my transcript of records evaluated for foreign equivalency. After I was rewarded with the equivalent degree, I focused my job search on my educational qualifications. I felt so thankful that in a month's time, I was able to find a job that matches my educational expertise, thus, my employer's application for a change of visa for me was readily approved. I am so glad for having taken the steps, to realize the dream that was born while I was listening to the music of the pounding waves of the rugged Pacific West Coast.

Carrot Cake and Friendship


It was one of those work-related trips where as always I was keeping in mind my TSS family. This site is where I find inspiration to live life to the fullest. My TSS family keeps me sane when work requires my strength and concentration. Believe me when I say my job could get oh too stressful. I deal with life and death matters. So when the going gets tough, I come here, to simply breathe in and breathe out, and write what is on my mind....


...and eat virtually together with all of you....today I brought a carrot cake from my said trip.
...a slice for the best of purposeful friendship and salitype's cause....

Leaving Our Loved Ones The Best of Memories


Last week I met a person I haven't seen for sometime. He looked a lot different. It seems he went through so much in a short span of time. When his parents were still alive he had the best of everything. He could have become anything he wanted to be career wise. Problem was, he did not want anything and so he did not achieve a thing until he was orphaned. Not knowing the legal matters he should have done and having no access and knowledge of helpful professionals like estate planning attorney in Oakland CA he practically lost almost everything his parents left him save for the house and lot where he is living in now. I heard, he is also on the brink of losing a roof on top of his head.

Had our late uncle and auntie taken advantage of the services of estate planning attorneys they could have saved many of their assets and passed them on to my cousin with ease and certainty. My dad used to say, "of the dead, speak no evil". I dare say though that somehow they missed a thing in rearing their only son. Well anyway, what happened to their family is a huge lesson on my part and something many should learn from.  There are people who could aid us, a professional corporation like Martin APC which takes into consideration the emotional turmoil legal matters could bring to our loved ones and financial draining is worth consulting for estate planning. More than twenty years of experience dealing with legal issues with tact, sensitivity and caring protects our rights and allows us to have peace of mind knowing that when we leave our loved ones we are assured that they will get what we worked hard for without the hassle of losing a lot of money and assests not to mention despair and helplessness. My heart aches for my cousin who practically lost everything materially save for the loving memory of my late uncle and auntie. Yet for as long as one works hard, nothing is impossible and that is a lesson I want to impart to him and my own kids as well so that someday when my husband and I inevitably leave them, we will leave them not only the best of memories but comfort and peace of mind.

Make Kids' Safety a Priority


It is always heartbreaking to hear news about kids who were taken in heaven (sorry, I couldn't bring myself to say the excruciatingly painful word) due to accidents. A few months ago, I read in a newspaper about two children (they are brothers) who met a tragedy on their way home from school. According to the news, the older brother fetched his younger brother from school using his bicycle.

They crossed the zebra line without realizing there's a huge cement truck coming. It turned out the cement truck driver did not see the children crossing so he did not stop and hit them without realizing. How do we stop such tragic accidents from happening? A very visible Children Crossing sign would be of great help especially in roads near school zone.

Safety signs can save lives. There was another tragic accident captured on a video and was circulating over the internet. In the video, a toddler emerged from the house door and walked towards a parked car which was about to leave the house. The car driver (not sure if it was the child's father) did not see the child right behind the car. He started the car engine and tried to manoeuvre backwards. I couldn't bear to view what happened next. It was too much for the eyes of a mom with two young children. I scolded the husband for showing the video to me, I wasn't able to sleep properly after that.

I worry about my kids' safety everyday but I turn my worries into a prayer. Everyday, I pray to God to protect not just my children, but all children in the world from harm, accidents and sickness. Please do the same. Prayer is powerful and life saving too. Let's all start a prayer brigade for the safety of all our God given angels.

ONE GREAT LOVE :-)

Listening to one of my favorite songs...

I stopped...think of some good old memories...and smiled...

I suddenly remembered one particular conversation that I and one of my friends had a few months ago...

She said, " You'll always have that one great love that you'll always remember...!"

I smiled at that thought....ONE GREAT LOVE?!?

She described him as someone that will always remind you of your younger self...blissfully exchanging smiles, love letters ( yup! we had those back in our day! ), shy glances and short lived holding hands...

I couldn't believe it...

But I smiled even wider when she said...but when you'll find the one...some part of you will forget your one great love...

Hmmmm...I think I beg to disagree...:-)

Now going back through that conversation I would have said, Your One Great Love is the one that you're willing  to spend your life with...laughing your lungs out together...sharing sweet nothings every single day...arguing about which dress is more appropriate every time you go out...debating on whether to eat at one of your favorite resto or one of his...exchanging sticky notes every time reminding each of your endless list of to do's for the day...and best of all sharing one bed...one comforter at night...exchanging butterfly kisses...and yes the  almost forever holding hands moments...

I looked at the man sleeping beside me, snoring loudly...and embracing me warmly and said...I found my ONE GREAT LOVE...and yes indeed he gives me those goose bumps every time he'd whisper, " You're beautiful and you know what's the best thing about it?"...What?!? I'd always asked...and he'd always reply with a naughty grin ...THE BEST THING ABOUT IT IS... YOU'RE MINE!

Black Can Be All-Year Round

    Black is the most versatile color in my closet. I can do a lot with this color. It can be the base tone for any outfit and can be used all year round in every season. If you’re thinking of hibernating those blacks this summer, think again. Here are creative ways to spice up that drab black blouse and end up looking summerish!
Black goes well with any color. Here, it is paired with green cord pants. Corduroys are crease free, easy to wash and always in style. Throw in a bohemian necklace, add a wooden bracelet and spice up with a textured bag and you’re good to go. A textured bag can add character to your whole ensemble if both your top and your bottom are plain colors.




 
Same black blouse paired with a short and sassy electric pink skirt! Need I say more? It has summer written all over it. Accessorize with a low peep-toe, slip-on and bright pink necklace and you are ready to hang out with friends for that late afternoon chit chat in a street café.




 
Your ever–dependable black blouse is still good to go. Capris are always in style. This aqua pair is inviting you to sit in a quiet park –read a book or just breathe fresh air and enjoy the cool breeze of summer afternoons. Spice up your black with a glittery tote and bejeweled flip-flops. Big necklaces in bright colors steal the show and take the attention AWAY from the drabness of that black.







So gather up those accessories and bring out those blacks –they go together well, be it during winter, spring, fall . . . or summer!
