Serious About Losing Weight

I’m impressed how the husband seems to know a lot about a certain food’s nutritional facts these days.  I think he’s really seriously taking the Weight Loss Contest/Program (ala-Big Loser style) in their workplace.  Ever since it started, he has become informational and doing trivia about the food that we eat.  It’s from him that I learned that crackers have 100 calories and it’s equivalent to a cup of rice already.  He also has become preachy about saturated fats and also shared his latest know how about fat burners.  Well, I wish him luck.  Hope he becomes successful in his pursuit to lose weight and that, their team wins the contest.

Monday Plans Went Awry

We would have been in Trinoma right now feeling full from a gastronomic pizza lunch if the pizza voucher I ordered from Cashcashpinoy is valid for use today.  Perhaps, we would also have been shopping, taking advantage of sales as our eyes are glued on the Retail POS System monitor gasping over the amount just charged on our credit cards.  We were supposed to use my Cashcashpinoy California Pizza Kitchen vouchers today as they’re due to expire on the 31st.  We figured that since we’ve got nothing to do at home today (a special holiday), we planned to have our lunch there today.  But lo and behold, when I went over the voucher fine print details last night, it said that they are not valid on special holidays.  So there goes the cancellation of the original plan.  We reset the lunch date and instead we’re going to use the vouchers on Wednesday, the last day of the voucher’s validity.  Buzzer beater, huh?

Filing an Actos Lawsuit

If you know of someone who has Diabetes, specifically the Type 2, better check the oral medicines he’s taking.  Recent studies have shown that Actos, a drug for Type 2 Diabetes, caused harmful effects to those who have taken it.  They experienced heart attacks, heart failure, and an increased risk of bladder cancer.  This drug has been pull out from the market already.  But for those who have taken this in the past, be aware that you are entitled to file an Actos lawsuit against the manufacturer of the drug and claim for damages.  You may contact Actos Injury Lawyers – the O'Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath for the appropriate legal assistance.

Wedding Proposal Ideas

I'm such a sucker for weddings. And since marriage proposals come first before it, I'm such a sucker too for romantic and unique proposals. For the guys, remember that it doesn't matter if the engagement ring is expensive or not, what matters most is your sincerity on how true and how much getting married to that particular person means so much to you.
Here are some ideas I compiled and stumbled upon on the internet:

1. During a special dinner, pop out three roses: Tell her one represents the past, one represents the present, and the last one (with a lovely everlon ring tied or tucked in it) represents the future.


2. If you have a parrot, train it to say, "Will you marry me?" And make a big show with the new words he has learned -- at a romantic moment.

3. If she is a school teacher, you could propose with all the school listening. Get permission from the school principal. Record a videotaped proposal and play it over the school video system, or make an announcement over the intercom. Then go to her classroom and give her the diamond with everyone cheering.

4. You can also buy a space on the newspaper and stage your proposal in an ad style.

5. Stage a treasure hunt. Provide her clues leading to the ultimate treasure which is the ring.

Happy Birthday Ate!

My elder sister is celebrating her birthday today.  Too bad we won’t be able to see her tonight since it’s a weekday and there’s no one who can drive us to my parents’ house in Makati where she’s staying.  I wonder what they’ll have for dinner tonight.  I sent her a text message and replied that she’s busy with work and feels sickly so perhaps, she and our little brother will just have some pizza delivery to celebrate with.  Probably, we can drop by on Sunday and give her a cake or something.  These ed hardy ladies' watches I’m looking at now are all lovely and I bet, she’ll be ecstatic to receive a piece.  Happy Birthday to my lovely sister!
