Affordable Professional Translators

We are living in a world that is dominated by English, but many still not forget how important it is to value their dialects and native languages. That is why as I browse the net, many websites are on their native languages whether it is understand or not by other people. And for having these text and voices to be heard around the world, one thing is indispensable, and that is translating.

When I encounter word on a different language, I use translation tool but more often than not, it led to confusion because of the different translations. Words have different meanings in different context, this is why there is a need for competent translator.

Translation is one of the most complex tasks that can be done only by highly skilled human that is why hiring a professional translator is very expensive but there are translators offering quality affordable translation. These translation websites can give you a perfect world language translation in just a click with 100% guaranteed satisfaction. Their thousands of professional translators are working together to translate any word for any subject at any time. Their translators are familiar with both the source and target languages, which is important for a good translation. You can choose the right translator and set your own appropriate price and time. You can have your name translation or your overseas business partner card’s translation. You can have a sentence or a word translated and pay only if you are totally satisfied.

You can register for free or you can be a translator too. Now, you can understand words, poems, letters, websites, etc., even if it is rendered in different language.

My Holiday Activities

I am back after a short hiatus for the holiday. We had a great Christmas celebration. We spent Christmas eve at my in-laws’ place and Christmas day at my parents’ house. RJ had great bonding time with her cousins. She was happy because she got many gifts, including new bicycle, our Christmas gift to her.

The other day, we watched Disney on Ice at the Araneta Coliseum. It was Rj’s first time and she asked if we can watch it again next year. Glad that Rhonnel bought tickets earlier. Disney on Ice will be shown until the 3rd of January next year but all tickets are sold out except for the upper box B and general admission.

It was only yesterday that I was able to take a nap in the afternoon. I slept at 2 p.m. and woke up at almost 6:30 p.m. When I opened my eyes, there was RJ and she said “Mabuti naman gising ka na” (Good that you are awake yet) in a sarcastic tone. lol! My daughter can’t believe that I slept that long in the afternoon.

Tomorrow, I’ll be busy again preparing food and cooking. Then in the evening we’ll have a street party. It’s not the last party yet for we are still waiting for the confirmation of 2 reunions, reunion with our friends (hubby’s highschool classmates) and reunion with my bestfriend and her family. This holiday is very exhausting and energy draining but we are enjoying so much. Hope you are enjoying your holiday too.

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all a fruitful 2010.

PBM Wins Suit Against Mead Johnson

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Choosing how to feed our baby is one of the most important decisions we make. Of course human breast milk is the best source of nutrition for our baby and it is highly recommended, but sometimes breastfeeding isn’t possible, like on my case, wherein I only had breast milk two months. Although breast milk is the best source of nutrition for our baby, we shouldn’t feel bad or guilty if we can’t breast feed our baby for some reasons because baby formulas are specially made to meet babies’ nutritional needs.

All infant formulas are regulated by the FDA and so the safety and nutritional quality of infant formulas are ensured by requiring that manufacturers follow specific procedures in manufacturing infant formulas. Under the Infant Formula Act, all formulas marketed in the United States must meet minimum nutrient requirements. That is why Mead Johnson, maker of Enfamil, loses multi-million dollar false advertising case against Store-Brand infant formulas, Store-Brand formulas found in federal court to be nutritionally equivalent to and confer the same developmental benefits as the more expensive national brands.Last December 2, 2009, PBM Products, LLC, a leading infant formula company that supplies store-brand infant formulas to Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, and other retailers, has received a favorable jury verdict and a $13.5 million damages award in its false advertising lawsuit against Mead Johnson & Co. This incident cost some parents hundreds of dollars extra in one year of formula purchases.

There are many brands of infant formulas in the market and it’s hard which one to choose for our baby. Deciding which brand and type of infant formula can be somewhat confusing but let us not forget that these milk formulas are regulated by the FDA and these regulations and the Infant Formula Act help to make sure that all infant formulas are nutritionally complete and safe for our baby. Try to compare the label of different milk formula and you’ll see that the cheaper milk formulas have the same nutritional content as the expensive ones. So why buy brands that will stretch your purse strings? PBM’s store-brand formulas (including those of sold at leading retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, and many others) cost up to 50% less than Enfamil, LIPIL, and allow parents to save as much as $600 per year on their formula purchases.

Breast milk is still the best for our babies but infant formula is a practical and safe alternative to breast milk.

Smartbro Part 2

October and November were difficult for me because of our intermittent internet connection. My husband was calling Smartbro, our internet provider’s customer service and their agents had the same answer: “technical adjustment on their base station”, the base station where we are getting our signal. When we didn’t get any result after a month, I decided to blog about our problem with Smartbro’s service last November 3 and got an answer from Smartbro’s Social Media Services on November 8 on my comment box.

Hi ,
We would like to help you regarding your Smart Bro concern, please email us your account details at ISMS@smart.com.ph

Thank you
Social Media Services
Smart Communications

So my husband emailed them immediately. He explained that we wanted our internet connection to be transferred to another base station wherein the signal is good. After a week, our request was granted. On the third week of November, their line men fixed our antenna and faced it to the other base station. We are connected to that base station for one month now and I can say though there are times we are having slow connections, we are not experiencing intermittent connections anymore.

I have proven that blog really do wonders. Thanks to Smartbro for attending to our request.

A Wheat Farm to Fork Experience

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.

When my husband was diagnosed of having high blood pressure last year, he shifted to healthy diet. He eats more vegetables, eats food without trans fat and shifted from white bread to wheat bread. Wheat, according to his doctor contains fiber, antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc and B vitamins. Wheat, in its natural unrefined state, features a host of important nutrients. Therefore, to receive benefit from wheat it is important to choose wheat products made from whole wheat flour rather than those that are refined and stripped of their natural goodness.
Wheat, like any other food, takes an interesting journey before it becomes delicious muffins, bread, pies, tortilla or pasta dish. If you want to experience how wheat on our plate comes to be, visit How Wheat Works, an online multimedia program created by Wheat Foods Council. It is a four-phase interactive program for all ages filled with factual information wherein you can grow, harvest, mill and bake your desired wheat food.

Eating wheat is very beneficial though the benefit of wheat depend entirely on the form in which you eat it. On How Wheat works, you can learn how to prepare different wheat-based recipes if you extend your learning experience after each phase. And by completing the program, you will be able to give wheat to those in need. The council will donate two pounds of flour up to 90,000 pounds to Operation Homefront, a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families.

Wheat Foods Council is extending this exciting farm to fork experience to us especially to our children. This will teach them how this most important cereal crop in the world and most consumed grain in America, is an important part of a healthy diet. By supporting this program, we’ll not just gain wheat knowledge but help other families as well.
