This article gave me the goosebumps. I am so encouraged to start a mini-vegetable garden on our backyard. Twenty Genetically Modified Foods Coming to Your Plate Into by Jack Adam Weber Article by Stephanie Rogers – ecosalon.com Intro – If the need to halt GMOs were not urgent enough, this article should scare the pants off you. Here we glimpse some of the potentials for the unabated and bizarre proliferation of GMOs. Some of these developments you will already know about (hopefully), but some will come as a surprise. As I see it we are now at a crossroads where we can still dismantle this dangerous andRead More →

This is so scary. I wonder if this experiment happened in other places aside from Winnipeg, Canada and if this practice is still ongoing. http://ca.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idCABRE83110320120402 WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) – Pigs that might have become the world’s first genetically modified animals approved for human consumption may instead face an untimely end, as key backers of Canada’s “Enviropig” project withdrew their support for the controversial engineered animal. Scientists at the University of Guelph, 90 km west of Toronto, bred the first GMO pig that was developed to address an environmental problem in 1999. The animal – known as Enviropig – digests its feed more efficiently than naturallyRead More →

I love freebies.  Just like this NextGen Gallery plugin that I uploaded to my personal blog.  It allows me to post photos and display them as thumbnails/list or slideshow.  Uploading both the plugin and later on the photos are a breeze.  Pretty functional and user-friendly it is. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/installation/Read More →

As I am currently updating my personal blog site, I was lucky to stumble upon this minimalist yet so beautiful and functional theme called the Cotton. http://themeforest.net/item/the-cotton-powerful-minimalistic-wordpress-theme/240813 Considering its very appealing functionalities, it is so cheap for the price of $35! I must admit though that I saw this template first from a digital scrapbook-er. So credits to her, I discovered the WP theme that fits my liking and needs perfectly.Read More →

We are on the look-out now for a new home theater system.  The one that served us for more than seven years has died on us two months ago.  I am tracking a few brands online right now and checking their reviews along side, too.  One time, I came across a 3d TV reviews site and the TV unit on offer has a home theater bonus.  Too bad we weren’t decided to go with the brand that time that now we regret not acting on it fast.  It would have been a value for money purchase.Read More →

I haven’t slept through the night for a little over 19 months now.  I am starting to feel that it is taking a toll on my health.  Forget about the dry hair and growing pimples and blackheads on nose, but I am feeling physically weak now, more than ever.  I hope my little boy sleeps through the night really, really soon so that I can start to regain my health.  Otherwise, I might lose my sanity along the way, too.Read More →

My kids love carousel rides and often than not, they will have a go at it whenever we are at the shopping center. It has then become a habit for me to collect “gold” coins and keep them all in my purse just so I’m always ready. They’re most favorite is the Wiggles ride, which luckily is almost always available in big shopping centers.Read More →

The weather has been really weird the past months that Summer brought us extremely hot days and windy or cold nights. So as with the first month of the Autumn season, the flowers are still in full bloom and the weather is Summer-y like on some days and Winter-y on the rest. Because of that, we have our heater, dehumidifier and vaporizer on stand by to help with the extreme weather changes.Read More →

With the help of a friend, my blogs were moved successfully to a new host.  I had planned it for the longest time, primarily because of the high fees I was paying my former host.  But I could not commit the time to move about seven blogs, consolidate some and implement plugin changes without making mistakes along the way.  I am so glad I had help doing these, stress-free. My subsequent task was changing templates.  I wanted a custom theme done for me but again, the fees are way too high for my blogging needs.  And so hiring professional web page builders was slashed outRead More →

They say that the wedding business is a big business and I believe it’s true.  When I was planning for my wedding, I discovered so many suppliers offering a variety of services and products that can easily make a couple go bankrupt if they are not careful with their wedding budget.  Then there are wedding businesses too that help you cut down on expenses, such as bridal gown or plus size bridesmaid dresses rentals. There’s just a business for every wedding detail.Read More →
