The Liquid Powder Magic

Our daughter's pediatrician advised us against using talc powder whenever possible as it could be a cause for the development of ashtma or allergy. But since it gets pretty hot and AJ tends to perspire quite a lot, we have to find a way to keep her smelling fresh all day.

We came across the VCO skin protecting liquid powder. Gentle and dust-free, the powder was especially designed and formulated for little tots' sensitive skin. The powder comes in several scents, but our personal favorite is The Precious Angel scent --- it does make my baby smell heavenly!

Life After Frank

Frank did a lot of damage to our house. There are still many things that need repair, stuffs that have yet to be organized. Outside, the grasses have started to grow, and the mud that covered the length of the road towards our house has dried up, but the road, though, is not yet smooth enough to walk on. The canals are still clogged, so every little fall of rain gets water into the house and makes the road unpassable.

We tremble in fear when there is a storm brewing. We fear because the rivers have become very narrow and need to be dredged. But who is supposed to do it? Local officials tell us to seek higher ground when the river threatens to overflow. But I think, the people want to see them actually do something --- dredge the river, repair the dikes damaged by the typhoon, clean up the drainage, or something like that. Until they do these things, residents of the area will continue to live in fear ...

I have sworn off wrist watches years before. I think the last time I wore one was over ten years ago. But, while doing a review about wrist watches, I could not help remembering my SWATCH collection. My Aunt who was in the States then sent me and my sister SWATCH watches which appealed to the teenagers and pre-teens during that time.

I visited SWATCH just out of curiousity, and I found myself hooked. The designs were still typical of SWATCH --- eclectic, trendy, classic. One great thing about SWATCHES is that they look expensive without actually being so. There are many wonderful and unique styles that cost only $100!

My Samsung L100

I'm so elated! I got myself a Samsung L100 and I love everything about it. It was not the most expensive kind in the lot, but it was the best as far as my budget can afford. This 8.2 mega-pixel digicam had face detection and digital image stabilization features. It also came with a two gigabyte (upgradable to 8 giga) memory card, a charger, lithium battery, and a camera case.

The Samsung L100 is slim, lightweight and compact and there are a variety of colors to choose from. Unfortunately the only available at the store I went to was black. I would have chosen something in metallic pink or blue, but what the heck?! Black is beautiful, too!
