My 2011 Adventure and Itinerary

The new year 2011 means my new Adventure!
A healthy start
--Our first stop will represent our explorations. Explorations of what? We love eating or food tripping! We will list down all our admired and most talked restaurants and fine dining experience we read and discovered. Once a month, when we will celebrate our special event, we will dig into them!

Casual wear
--Next is my shopping list. Looks very expensive but wait, it is just a wish list for this year. Something to look forward or a small token after a hard work. =)
--Then, my New Year's Resolution? nah!,Bible Quotations, church topics, birthdays galore, anniversaries, do visual photography (sometimes using my 4-year old digital camera)


meetings, project milestones, word of the day for professional life, new exercise routines, calorie diary, diet diary, monthly expenses, monthly dues, business transactions, e-loading record, medical terms, names of the person I met, latest gadgets, useful links, blog backlogs,

Another thesis?
basic formulas for work and profession, the ancient way of saving your contact details or as a phonebook

But for a limited offer:

We want to travel local destination together with my relatives or special someone. Palawan is on to of our list. Only one local destination because we can’t afford to other places because of little budget and hectic schedule.

We dream to fly a plane to get to our favorite destination. We never get any experience to travel by plane.

We don’t want to eat hefty and expensive food in Palawan. All we want to do is invest quality time with each other. But since it is a dream, to taste local delicacies will satisfy our hunger.

Time is as good as gold. Precious time investing with your special someone is PRICELESS DREAM.

This is my official entry to Olukai Philippines What is your 2011 Philippines Contest! Visit Olukai Philippines for other details.

Aesthetics of Life: Healthy and Clean Living

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe... bottled juice is not the best thing, the contents inside really matters most. Minute Maid created Pulpy. Bottled but nutritious.

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I... until the last drop of it including the real pulpy bits MUST BE SAVED for last!

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means... LIFE...

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna tell you this, "LOVE YOUR LIFE AND LIVE WITH PULPY-MINUTE MAID a HABIT!"

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)
