It seems that I am very busy today! Another trip is coming soon and I need to pack my luggage for my Christmas market trips to three European Capitals. It seems that my excitement went away after knowing that I still need to finish some offline and online tasks before I take-off. I hope I can finish everything before midnight. I am crossing my fingers. (more…)
Have you recently lost your job? Bereaved or heartbroken? Spinning out of control? Major emotional upheavals are incredibly damaging to your self-esteem, making you want to indulge daily in a pity party for one. Building your confidence requires time, effort and changes to your behavioural patterns; let me be clear, there are no quick fixes no matter what the experts tell you. One thing is certain though, the only person you should be improving your confidence for is you.
While striking an inner balance is beneficial, the transformative power of sport has the ability to challenge your mind, refine your body and temper your soul. Once your initial goals are done and accomplished, the sense of pride, relief and invigoration will be palpable; you will be tired, sweaty, a bit over it, but reaching that point will prove you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Some of your might be questioning the advent of Christmas Market. How and where did it start? These markets are now being held in many countries but it is said that these Christmas Markets originated in the German-speaking countries like in Germany, Austria, Alsace in France and South Tirol.
The Christmas Market, also known as Christkindlesmarkt, Christkindlmarket, Weihnachtsmarkt and Christkindlmarkt is a street market that usually starts before the first Sunday of Advent and ends before or after Christmas day.

This black visa credit card seems very interesting! I also found the black color beautiful since I love black. Owning this visa card is perfect for a world traveler like me. I can’t imagine myself being treated as as VIP when owning one. I already have some credit cards but this one has more privileges. I never experience a VIP treatment because my credit cards are all ordinary ones. (more…)

“Help me get this to Anderson Cooper
Mr. Anderson Cooper, I want to thank you for reporting on the miserable conditions that you saw when you covered the Tacloban calamity scene 5 days after the typhoon. Your report came out on Tuesday, the day I was herding our relatives to the airport to finally get out of Tacloban. A day before, I was able to board the relief cargo plane of Air 21 Express from Manila to Tacloban when I was given the chance, getting there on Monday noon, and immediately I set out looking for my family members. On the way to the city, I saw what you saw, countless dead bodies strewn on the ground in various stages of decomposition, extensive destruction everywhere I looked, injured people walking on the streets looking like zombies – hungry, confused, desperate. The stench of death permeated all around us and sent chills down my spine. Countless times as our vehicle moved down the road, we were stopped by people in the streets begging for food. The roads were only passable by one lane, and along the way, I saw officers of the BFP (Bureau of Fire Protection) manually remove the dead bodies, along with the unbelievably massive amount of debris scattered all around. Because of this, what would normally take 40 minutes or less to traverse became an agonizing 2 hour ride. I saw what you saw, Anderson, and it angered me as much as it did you.
