Companies are offering some services that can give this convenient on each one of us, there were some repairing services, medical services and also some shopping services, however, there was this one services that you’ll find more reasonable than to the said services on top, which the House Cleaning service Gaithersburg MD. Yeah- Cleaning services these days aren’t that well know or famous among all the services that people knew. But you know what, this services is the must I think we can avail or reconsider on our housing budget, because if you have a clean house and if someone cleaning of it often, you’ll be not be experiencing some unwanted illness due of the unclean home.
We have been thinking a lot about our next holiday trip after a very enjoyable and memorable Australia getaway. I have been to the US twice already but since I was mostly with hubby on meetings, I was not really able to explore a lot of places in that beautiful country yet. Of course it would be impossible to do that, but at least I would have loved to visit those touristy places that I only see on TV.
Well, I did not really consider those trips to be holidays, anyway. Those were more of business trips with some sightseeing on free times, of course. Although we have no definite schedule for our next family holiday, I have been surfing of possible vacation destinations in the US, in case we do get to go.
Firstly, I guess we have to decide first how our vacation would look like: would it be on a beach? Would it be somewhere up country where we could walk along riverbanks, enjoy canoeing, or would it be in a bustling city and get lost in a crowd of shoppers, and shop ‘til we drop?
I have not asked the kids yet but for sure they won’t be so keen on the shopping thing. The beach would probably top their choice! In that case, it would be good to check on holidays to Orlando 2012. What’s good about Orlando is that you could have access to one of the world’s best beaches, theme parks and yes--- Disneyworld! It sure is every kid’s dream destination… and it’s every kid –at- heart’s too, like me!
In the Southeast part of Florida is Miami, which is also an interesting city. It would not be hard to find luxury Miami holidays -- The city has great beaches, places to shop, and also with famous theme parks for the children to enjoy. I’d probably get so star-struck when I’d see famous Hollywood stars lying on the beach! The ever aspiring photographer me would surely turn into a paparazzi in no time.
So Florida 2012 holidays from the UK is really worth checking out. To visit this sunny city with the family would surely be one of the vacations we would never forget!
Photography has always been my passion. In fact when I got my own DSLR, I just couldn’t stop clicking and composing subjects. My camera has already become a part of my wardrobe because whenever my family and I go out, I make sure that I always bring it with me. Now I have been thinking of enhancing and learning more about photography. But since my hands are full now, I couldn’t find time to go to school or to a photography class. Thankfully, most of the schools and universities now offer online classes and there are many online courses being offered. I hope that there are also online degree programs in photography because if they do, I would surely enroll (as long as my time and schedule permits).
I am glad that universities have already ventured into this to give chance to those who would want to go back to school and or finish a degree but just do not have the time to do so. Online degree programs are very convenient as students no longer have to be in school and yet can still work at the same time.
It can even help them save money because they don’t have to pay for board and lodging. What’s also good about it too is that many universities also offer Free application for federal student aid like that at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. So those deserving students will really have the opportunity to pursue their dreams of earning a degree.

Outdoor adventures like mountain climbing, caving, hiking and among others are gaining popularity nowadays. Many men and women go on hiking on the jungle or wilderness just to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, others do it as a hobby and some do it as a way to bond with the family.
When it comes to sports and hobbies like hiking, it is always important to have the right gears and outfit so as to protect the body from the natural elements especially when going outdoors. When going hiking, the right and fitting hiking boots must be worn. Hiking boots are an essential part of the outfit or gear as it provides comfort over miles and miles of rugged terrain and can protect the hiker’s foot from water, mud, dirt and other elements.
These sturdy boots are also cushioned to prevent the foot from blistering and also provides support to the ankles from twisting. So it is best to choose those quality and durable ones, those that are your money’s worth.
If there is one thing that we should invest much in ourselves, it is none other than health. A healthy body yields a sound mind. A sound mind creates sound ideas that would eventually lead us to the realization of whatever plans and dreams we want to achieve. As the cliché goes; an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
However, no matter how we keep ourselves in the best of health as possible, there really are times that we become too vulnerable with health hazards because we just don’t take the right precautions rather than our own beliefs and perceptions about the right ways to be healthy. We don’t even bother to browse any health and wellness directory despite the fact that they are just a few clicks away.
The health-directory.net can provide us with comprehensive health information with their health directory and fitness directory which proves to be helpful among those who don’t have the luxury of time to go to health clinics for a one on one consultation.
Indeed, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, then everyone in our family feels happy and worry-free.
Perhaps one of the greatest needs in the medical field today would be an on- going training for doctors, and training trainers to do the same. Oxford Medical undoubtedly provides a solution to this need and has an excellent reputation worldwide.
Established in 2004, Oxford Medical also provides medical management courses. This program teaches business skills to medical professionals and is highly recommended for those who are into managing hospitals, health care organizations and even clinics.
We also believe that teacher doctors should grow professionally and should be able to receive the latest on medical theories, thereby increasing not only their knowledge and improve their teaching skills. This is the exact reason why the medical teaching course is developed.
Teach the teacher course, otherwise known as “Train the trainer” course is also designed to teach the doctor teachers practical techniques, skills and knowledge necessary to make the most of their teaching experience. In this course, doctors are taught about understanding the learners’ learning skills, articulating the lessons both in a one-on-one setting and group teaching sessions. This has a formidable reputation of being the Number 1 Teach the Teacher course for doctors in the UK.
In the span of 7 years, Oxford Medical trains more than 1,000 doctors every year and has garnered the reputation of being the best in offering medical career development services to doctors in the UK.
When people go and visit central Kuala Lumpur, they would usually end up taking photos of the twin towers, not noticing the building beside it. This is Maxis Tower.
Maxis Tower, or Menara Maxis in the Malay language, is an office skyscraper that houses the headquarters of Maxis Communications and Tanjong Plc Group of Companies. The building was developed by KLCC Properties Holdings Berhad (KLCCP) under Phase 1 of the KLCC project. The building is owned by Impian Klasik Sdn Bhd, in which Tanjong holds a 67% stake and KLCCP holds a 33% stake. Maxis Tower is situated in the northwest corner of the KLCC development, adjacent to the Petronas Twin Towers. As with its neighboring twin towers, Maxis Tower features an aluminum and glass cladding facade. - wikipedia.org
One of the places to go while in Ranong is a cool tourist spot that is hot. Yeah, it's the Ranong Hot Spring. They have pools that you can dip your feet into. Hot springs do have health benefits. What is cool or hot about this tourist spot is that you can enter the place for free. The Thai government keeps it open for free for whoever want to spend time there.
Another big on Kruger Park's the big five is a Buffalo. Buffalo are extremely adaptable animals, being able to occupy open grasslands, wooded savanna and thickets. Highly gregarious animals, buffalo associate in herds of up to 1000 or more individuals. Despite being very aggressive and extremely dangerous animals (more hunters are killed by buffaloes than any other animal), buffaloes are very peaceful amongst themselves.

US currency is currently going down. Canadian dollar has caught up. And so when my husband flew to Canada, we were a bit surprised with the increase of their currency.
I can't help but think that it is now high time to know where exactly we invest our money. I mean, yeah we can have so many options where to invest our money but I guess it is best to invest it in gold 401K. Don't you agree?
Anyways, to those who invested in gold IRA around 1970's, it is interesting to note that there's a substantial increase in the value of gold nowadays. In fact if you purchased 25,000$ worth of gold bullion, you could sell that for 524,999$ now. How exciting is that?
When my husband and I went to a jeweler shop and we told them I wanted to buy a gold chain for an investment, the sales person casually mentioned about 401K gold and how it is much much better to invest on it than the usual gold jewelry.
Makes me think that when I have money, probably i'll explore in investing in gold coins instead.
The house I am living in right now is old. By old, I mean it's almost ran down. The faucet is not only leaking water, it's also making that annoying noise. The curtain rail was broken.
The wooden tiles upstairs is picking off one by one. I wonder how much is Hardwood floor installation cost. When we came to this house, I only saw a few of them picked off. It would be good to do a house renovation but we are just renting this house. Maybe, after our two year-contract, we will find another house to move in. But it would be very hassle to move house again.
I have been away for quite some time now. My apologies. There were just too many things that are going on on my part of the world.
We went to Koh Lipe last week. And I was disgusted to see I didn't look nice in my two-piece swimsuit. I should have at least worked out on getting slimmer. I should have checked WonderSlim Coupons and get myself some of those get-me-slim-fast pills. LOL.
Anyways, above is the photo I took from Koh Lipe.That's from our cottage, overlooking the beach. I feel I didn't have enough time there. So yes, I am planning another trip there, this time, with my husband. And I hope, too, that this time, I would feel comfortable wearing my two-piece swimming suit!
I have created another blog. Yay. It's going to be a daily post about Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I hope to have enough time to so I can build it up. It mainly talks about my daily finds, people, food, culture and some other things.
Yeah, I know I have been a blog addict lately, creating blogs, buying domains. The only thing I need to know how to do design a logo. I guess it would be nice that each of my blogs will have a logo.
If not, probably, I'll just find a site that generates logo. LOL.
My sister tagged me some photos she took in Hawaii. The sunset looks so beautiful I can't resist posting one here.
Someday, I will go to Hawaii to visit my sister. I will definitely take lots of photos so I can show more.
I also want to visit other islands. She actually lives in Waikiki. It would be nice to visit the surrounding islands.
My sister told me there are many things you can do while in Hawaii. You can do beach sports, kayaks, banana boat rides, para-sailing (will definitely try para-sailing one of these days in Malaysia), snorkeling, SCUBA diving and more.
Shopping would be great too. And I believe her because one of her photos was Forever 21 boutique store. LOL.
Last year my husband and I planned to go for an out of the country getaway with our family. Two years ago, in 2009, we went to Macau, Hong Kong, and China for our family getaway. We thought it was too much to do in a year, visiting 3 countries, considering all the expenses we had. So last year, in 2010, we went to Thailand only.
For 2011, we have booked our flights to Melbourne, Australia. And speaking of that, I really need to save some more money so we can enjoy our holiday without worrying about the finances.
Where will our 2012 holiday destination be? We haven't decided yet, but we are looking seriously at time in a a href="http://www.breezes.com/resorts/">resort in the caribbean. Why not, as beautiful as the place is, I guess it's no wonder a lot of people from all over the world flock to the Caribbean for holiday breaks.
It's a good plan to stay at a resort in caribbean paradise! And we have found that www.breezes.com is a great help in planning our caribbean vacation. I have read the information on the internet and it looks great! Breezes Resorts offer a super-inclusive package that includes all your meals, all your drinks drinks, all entertainment, and even some land and water sports activities. Who can resist a super-inclusive vacation like that? Maybe I should start saving for our 2012 vacation too. My kids would be ecstatic to know we're going!
It's going to be Chinese New Year soon. And you know what it means? Mandarin Oranges and Ang pows. LOL.
I have Chinese neighbors. One early morning this week, somebody knocked our door rang the bell. When I opened the door, I saw my neighbor carrying this medium sized box. It was a box full of Mandarin oranges.
I just bought a domain from godaddy. And no, it's not for this blog, not just yet. But soon, I know that I'd be buying a domain for this one, too.
And so there, I really patted myself on the back to be able to know the ticks and the trade of buying a domain. Not that it's really hard to do. But I relied on a friend to do it for me before.
After I bought a domain, I tried transferring it to my self webhosting. It's another pat on the back. LOL. I used to do it last time then it got so complicated I left it to my self web hosting provider to do for me. But this time, I tried my hands on it again. And yes, I did it.
Now I have a couple of new domains. No, actually I have a few new domains.
Will I be able to host a webhost too? I am not too sure. I hope one day I'll learn how to do it. For now, let me enjoy my self webhost hosted by my friend.
It has been a cool weather for us here in Subang Jaya for the past couple of weeks. It hasn't been raining though. And I kind of like it. It saves us a lot of electricity usage.
Because I don't need to turn my air conditioning unit on all the time. Now I just turn it on on bed time. Then run it for a few hours and it would be chilly the rest of the night.
And so the Ceiling Fan would come into the picture. I don't like to turn on the ceiling fan when the air con is on. It kind of irritate my skin (or me for that matter). But I don't have a problem when it's only Ceiling Fan that's working.
My husband once said (we were not married then) that the best home address is his address. I thought about it and wondered. Then I realized that he was loving his place so much. It is so convenient and can get to important places and establishments in just a few minutes drive.
But you know when he said, my mind was already wandering, imagining some address plaques or address signs with his own address names on it. LOL. Silly me.
But really, I am glad that my husband would think of the convenience. Sometimes, people tend to forget their environment and community when it comes to purchasing houses.
And speaking of address and signs, wouldn't it be nice if you have the address plaques and numbers that would fit your house design? One of my neighbors has this beautiful classic (almost English cottage style) house and I thought their classic address sign goes well with their house too.
i am using point and shoot for my images. but i am dreaming of having a good dslr camera in the near future*. all images are mine except otherwise stated. I am also posting some photos I took while on holiday/break outside Subang Jaya. Thus, Subang Jaya and Beyond. Enjoy your stay!
* I just upgraded my camera from Sony Cybershot to Sony A380. So, from June 2010 onwards, all shots will be from my new camera. Cheers!
*July Update - just another upgrade to a Nikon D90
