How To Prevent Eye Bags

Do you dream of having a pair of beautiful and tantalizing eyes? I do! My eyes have always been very small, not ideal to put eye make up on, plus I’ve got eye bags all over! And they’re slightly bigger than my eyes HAHAHA.

Eye bags become visible as you grow older. The more stressed you are, the bigger it gets and the bigger it is, the harder it is to get rid of them. But here are some few tips on how you can (at least) prevent eyebags from becoming bigger.

1. Avoid stress and over fatigue. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep everyday.

2. Use the best eye cream for you.

3. Include food rich in Vitamin K in your diet.

My Barrio Siete’s Water System

This is the typical water system in my barrio.

Life here is so simple. There’s no NAWASA nor electric water pump to supply us water everyday, no shower tubs in the bathroom, nor attractive Grohe faucet gracing our kitchen. We take a bath and do the laundry at the same time using water from the dugwell. The water coming from it is safe for drinking, and although it is safe to drink already, I prefer boiling them first because I am so arte haha. Here in Manila, I don’t drink tap water because I am so arte nga haha, I only drink Wilkins LOL. Seriously, I don’t like the obvious taste of chlorine, so I usually get a supply from a  mineral water refilling station.

Help!My Blog Needs an Extreme Makeover

I’ve been having problems connecting to my own site the past days. I’m not even sure if I’ll be able to publish this entry today. It it takes 5 mins. to open my blog alone. I’ve tried different browsers and they’re all doing the same. It wont load quick like I always have done in the past. At first, I thought it was only a problem with my computer, so I checked my jurassic pc at home and surprisingly, it takes forever to load haha! Obviously, this is not just a plain computer glitch since my pc at work does the same thing too.

I know, I should talk to my host ASAP. Maybe it’s high time I upgrade my web hosting plan. You think? My blog is already on its second year and it needs an extreme makeover – new layout, new header and a new host, maybe. I should get bigger bandwidth to support my blog’s traffic for the next  year, and the other blogs that I might self-host too (I’m thinking of putting up a photo blog soon).

If you are also looking for a new webhosting service, check out the list of webhosting sites at webhostinggeeks.com. They provide independent reviews to help you get the best web host provider that offers a stable and fast loading speed without hurting your pockets!

Wow! Christmas is just around the corner. What are your plans this year? Thinking of cool items to give your friends (blogfriends included) this season? I’m planning to give promotional items to my friends and colleagues, like  a cellphone holder or a customized cellphone keychain. Last year, I prepared several  customized mugs for my blogfriends. How about beaded earrings for my girlfriends? Not sure yet, I’m still quite busy these days. Or I might just send out greeting cards instead LOL.

Christmas is really all about giving – whether it is cheap or expensive, it doesn’t matter. Afterall, ai’s the thought that really counts. Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Audio Books for Busy People

I have several books in my wish list, some of them were recommendation from my friends while other were selection from Oprah’s book club. I enjoy reading mostly classics, history, self development, fiction with a little romance on the side. Sci-Fi, fantasy and mysteries are my favorites too.

Too bad, I am so occupied with my work that I have very limited time to spend on reading these books. Besides, some of them are expensive. If you have downloadable audio books of Jane Austen’s 6 novels, please pleaseee send me a copy. Thanks!

Busy


I didn’t realize moving houses can be a stressful time, with lots to do, lots to remember and lots that can go wrong! I just moved in to a new apartment near the office 2 weeks ago, and I tell you, it is very tiring. I’ve been busy buying other stuff that I left in my previous apartment, fixing the furnitures etc. I still have a lot of unpacking to do. Imagine, I still have 2 unopened big boxes loaded with books and some stuff. Someone hand me over a box cutter and I’ll start ripping them off before this day ends.
