My Biggest Mistake

Since I was a kid, I have always been enamored with the idea of marrying a foreign guy and traveling to strange and far distant lands.  I never really thought it was going to happen but we all have dreams.  During my last year in college, I began working with computers and the internet.  I soon discovered the online dating websites where young women like me could get in contact with men from all over the world.  It was free for women like us to sign up to be profiled on many of these websites so I and some of …

School Days

I had a lot of fun in my high school days. I had a lot of friends and continued to do well in my studies. I didn’t put too much pressure on myself, instead, I just had fun.

This is a sponsored post.


Before I met my hubby, I put more emphasis on style over comfort in everything that I bought including mattresses. Over the years, I have changed my thinking. When I go shopping, I now consider comfort and practicality more important than style.  Yes, my husband has greatly influenced me in that area.

I learned my lesson big time when he suggested that I should wear a different pair of shoes on my flight abroad.  I insisted on wearing the pair that was less comfortable yet stylish.  My flight got interrupted and lengthened because of bad weather …

Blogging Platform with a Touch of Social Media?

I have been blogging since 2005. It first started as a hobby then turn into a business. As a newbie in the blogosphere, I first used blogging platforms that offered free hosting. I used Blogger and Bravenet. I think they were the best way to go if you are new to the blogging world.

It took me about a year or two before I purchased my own domain names. Then, in 2007, I officially started my business working from my home. Taking surveys was my first work-from-home job and then, for some reason, my attention got diverted to blogging. My …

My Early Years

For me, life has been hard.  As a matter of fact, my hubby says that my favorite saying is ” life is hard”.  I always say that when I get depressed or discouraged.  The truth is that life used to be hard but I didn’t really realize it when I was a kid.  In fact,  life has been pretty good lately for me and the future seems very bright.  My biggest problem right now is my impatience.  I know that really good things are coming but it’s hard to wait.  Patience is not my greatest virtue.

I was born into …
