My Family's 2017 Christmas Celebration


My family and I spend our Christmas together in the little abode - The Internet shop. We didn't go anywhere. My husband decided to close the shop on Christmas day. So, we will have time for each other and do the things as a family.

Guess, I miss being in a real house where there are no computers around. I just imagine and feel contented going around cleaning and washing clothes as a wife does for the family. While my husband was cleaning the parts of the personal computer in each cubicle. My son was busy on the computer watching animated series for kids.

The only thing I can't do is cooking for Christmas. We do not have a kitchen. But, there's a hospital kitchen nearby which is two doors away from the shop. If you are wondering, the Internet Shop is part of the hospital building. We are hesitant to use it. So, we decided to buy cooked foods from a restaurant. We bought food that's enough for us to eat.

Our food for the eve of Christmas was simple. It consists of a:
  • medium-sized platter of Filipino-style (sweet) Spaghetti
  • one whole Lechon Manok, it's a whole size of chicken cleaned, spiced and grilled on top of a charcoal ember. 
  • A small platter of Pancit Bihon,   
  • 2 Loaves of Bread
  • 1 liter of Coca-cola

That's it! We're good to go for this season! Looking forward to the year 2018 for good health and more blessings to one and all.

You're wearing a garb for the holiday with an elegant gift for a kris kringle or gift-giving to your love ones and friends. But wait! Check on the mirror, is your hair set for the season's party?

Fresh from the shower, you look attractive and yet it is momentary. Since we live in the tropics, it spoils our looks making us feel sweaty and smelly. The persistent changes of our weather makes our hair dry and delicate.

Finishing The Assignments With Ease

The school and college life is full of assignments. Each and every subject tends to have some or the other topics on which the assignments are meant to be done and various examinations and marks depend upon the assignments submitted by the students as asked by the teachers and professors. Doing an assignment involves in a lot of time, effort and creativity along with knowledge and planning.

At the same time one needs to follow the guide lines provided by the teachers and also the format for writing a particular type of paper or assignment. Students try to search for the similar type of papers online in order to get an idea on how the work must be done but then not all types of papers are available online ready- made.

Using the term paper web site one can ease out the hassle of doing an assignment with a little money involved in the process. It is a web site that helps students by providing them with the sample paper that relates entirely to their requirement by charging them a little money. There are professional term paper writers who are employed under the web site who writes paper according to the student’s requirement.

One just needs to open the web site and get going with the work process. A free estimate can be calculated before placing the order so that one does not feel cheated with the web site at any case. One can simply select the type of paper required, number of words or pages and the level or the academic session in order to get the estimated budget. This budget also varies from the various types of topics available and of course the deadline provided by the client. Once the budget is seen one can get going with the placement of order.

One can buy term papers through the web site without worrying about anything related to plagiarism or authentication of the client. One can be sure about the quality of the work provided by the expert writers as they know how to write papers. The web site does not leak any information about their clients and hence one can be sure about the privacy of getting a sample paper in order to complete an academic assignment.

The client also gets to learn about new skills and hence get trained to handle various types of assignments in future if required as one is not getting the exact work done but the sample of how related work or paper must be written. One can buy term papers as it is like the blueprint of the original assignment to be done.

Once the assignment is delivered to the client, the client is then free to use it the way he or she wants to. The term papers provide a great helping hand to the students by cutting the time required to complete an assignment and also makes the student learn about the perfect way of doing a particular kind of paper with ease and expertise.

A Joyful Holidays with SvelT'i


It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From frenzied last-minute shopping sprees to multiple Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also cannot deny the fact that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on your skin with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and mad traffic we all have to deal with.
So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

Always Keep Hydrated
The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. “Skin care addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.


Purify and Nourish
No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, never forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and end your day with nourishing your skin. The thorough cleansing and washing away of make-up before sleeping is also an important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.

After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics. “It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.

Detox Your Skin
The holiday season is definitely a time for gift-giving so why not treat yourself by giving your skin a much-deserved detox? Aside from eating healthy and doing a good amount of exercise, you can also gift yourself with a cream that can help bring back the skin glow that was lost during the holiday frenzy.

“Externally, you can apply every morning our massage cream that infuses the skin with collagen. Collagen rejuvenates the skin and makes it appear youthful. Our production of it reduces as we age, but products like the massage cream infuses regular doses of collagen that add that let the skin’s natural glow to shine.”

“Since Christmas is a time for giving, it is high-time that you give yourself the best gift you can have and that is the right skin care regimen. With all the stress you have to deal with during the holiday season, a trip to a skin clinic such as Svelt’i is a great reward for yourself. Do proper skin care daily and you will see the results,” enthuses Dr. Salazar. “To ensure that you are on the right track, you can confirm the methods and outcome of your skin care regimen with clinical specialists who will advise you accordingly. A monthly visit can do wonders for the overall wellness and aesthetic appearance of your skin.”

Treat Yourself
Of course, one of the best skin regimens ever is to stay healthy and keep a positive outlook because it would definitely manifest on your skin. But since it’s the holiday season, why don’t you give yourself a Christmas treat and go all out on skin care? “If you want to reward yourself this Christmas, go for SkinRenew,” says Dr.Salazar. “It works on three levels that really rejuvenates and firms our skin. It exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates it. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the skin and replaces them with new fresh ones. Infusion gives the skin cells the nutrients they need to fight disease and the effects of aging. Oxygenation makes the skin vibrant and gives it that youthful glow.” Nothing would be more rewarding than having healthy and glowing skin to welcome 2018, right?

The holiday season may take a toll on your skin but with these holiday skin care tips, you can keep your skin looking stress-free and beautiful and welcome 2018 with a bang!

How My Mom Sent My Brother To School

When my parents were both alive, they went into a real struggle within their married life. My father found someone else while working in an appliance store. It was sad and painful for her. I'm affected by it.

My brother was starting in college. He took Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation in a private school. With all the stress surrounding her, my mom couldn't think straight for a moment. She was thinking of my brother's tuition fee and other expenses. And God is good. God gave her the wisdom to think or solved her financial situation. This is what she did!

Selling Blankets Made from Flour Bags
My mom went from one bakery store to another to buy unused flour bag. One bag costs is only $0.22 or one peso. To clean it, she shake off the remaining flour, soak it in the water for a while before washing. To remove the prints from the flour bag is risky. She uses gas, a liquid form bought from gasoline station. It is usually used for lighting a lamp. When the flour sack is clean, she starts to sew two flour sacks. Two flour sacks is equal to one blanket. A blanket made of flour bag is $2 or P100.

Help from Relatives
In my eyes, I am so astounded from the relatives on my mother and father's side. They help her in my brother's tuition fee and fare in going to school. My heart was full. I am overwhelmed to see them do it. Thanks to them. For my part, I did send her money for little brother's school.

Playing Bingo
Bingo is a fun activity for low-income Filipinos. You pay for a few cents, if you win, you'll get $20 or one thousand pesos depending on the amount you played. My mom tried her luck with playing bingo games. Since, I live far from her, a niece told me how lucky she is. She won not only a thousand but thousands. She used the money as a fund for my little brother's tuition fees and other expenses. She sent a tithe to a church for thanksgiving mass. I am thankful that my mom knows how to play and used it.

This is how my mom sent my little brother to school. It's nothing to be ashamed of because it's an approach to do good for the family.
