Over the Busy Road

This beauty of nature is hovering over the busy road. It balances God’s and man’s creations. I took this shot from the overpass at SM Marikina.

Lavish Wool Garments from Rambler’s Way

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

Have you tried wearing wool today? Not the itchy heavy garment with scratchy plaid and tweed that your grandmother used to wear but the light and soft next to skin wool which is delicate enough to swaddle even the newborn infants.

Technology has greatly improved including fabric technology and automated garment construction techniques. WINDspun technology is one of the most exciting fabric innovation fueling the development of better products for wool consumers, the same technology that Rambler’s Way is using to produce the smoothest, most lavish wool garments. Rambler’s Way incorporates the old world concept of attractive wool garments that are made from sheep, with the most modern “WINDspun” technology that is available throughout its production process making wool an all year round clothing unlike before wherein wool was used only to withstand cold weathers. Because of its lightness and comfort, you can wear it even on summer and is also good as working out clothes.

Now that there are more divergent trends in fashion and a lot of choice exists each year, wool apparels have retained their place in the wardrobes because of “WINDspun” technology. They are still included in the most popular choices and are great hit both in the older and younger generations.

Learning Never Ends

Years ago, I did not know anything about computers. Would you believe I did not know the difference between Microsoft Word and Power Point? I did not even know how to send emails and how to use Yahoo Messenger. Well, you cannot blame me. When I was in college, computers were just newly introduced and much more the internet. My only background in computer is flow charting.

When I met my husband who is a Computer Science graduate, my virtual world has changed. He taught me everything from Microsoft Word, Power Point, and how to use the internet. And when a friend introduced me to blogging a year back, I learned much more. Now I know how to tweak blog layouts, make headers, buttons, etc. Presently, I am trying to make a web layout of my own. I love browsing the net and I learned a lot through constant research.

Do not restrict yourself. Just because you have graduated with a degree course doesn’t mean you can stop studying. There are many things to learn from and add to your knowledge be it in IT or other fields. Things move so fast that as soon as you learn one thing, it changes. In this fast pacing world adaptability is a must. Read as much as you can and browse the net as often as you can for you not to be left out. Learning never ends.

faceVsion TouchCam N1 for High Definition Video Calls

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Online video chats has greatly increased at a fast pace and becoming a standard form of communication. Thanks to the internet. Instead of writing letters to my friends and loved ones, which my mother used to do years back, I can now talk to them through Skype and can build closer relationships with them even they are on the other side of the world through video calls.

I talk to my sister in Qatar every night through Skype. I can say that sound quality with Skype is better than that of other video call softwares. However, I cannot help myself from complaining every time my sister and I chat as I am using Logitech Pro 9000 which my husband bought three years ago. It delivers very low quality video calls because its HD can only be accomplished locally. The image is blurry and pixelized and there are always delays. In short, it cannot actually stream HD quality over the internet.  My sister advised me to dispose my Logitech Pro 9000 and use faceVsion TouchCam N1 instead like the one she is using.

The faceVsion TouchCam N1 is a product of faceVsion, the makers of FV ExpressCombo. TouchCam N1 is the first Internet streaming true HD webcam for Skype video calls. This webcam is capable of delivering full screen 720p streaming video over the Internet. The FV touchcam N1 built-in hardware H.264 encoder, a chip that takes the 720p video and using high-quality encoding technology that squeezes the video into a stream small enough to be sent over a typical Internet connection, what makes it a strong competitor against any HD webcam. The N1 also features a best-in-class 78 degree super wide angle lens with fast auto-focus, so several people can comfortably get into the picture.

The FV touchcam N1 is available through shop.facevsion.com and other value added partners. It easily connects to your PC via high speed USB 2.0, an easy plug and play, and comes with a flexible universal base that attaches easily to most notebook computers or flat-panel displays and is extremely portable.

I think I have to follow my sister’s advice for me to enjoy high definition video calls that look real and feel real. You should do the same if you want a superb video experience with friends, family or business contacts wherever they are in the world. Now is the time to get it from faceVision on line store. www.shop.facevsion.com  is now running a back to school promotion with $10 off any purchase, using the promo code of FVTBTS2 while checkout. The promotion ends September 30, 2010.

The Emotional Side of Me

I am not an astrology fan but its description of Gemini for having a dual nature as it symbolizes twins is somewhat true with me.

I am very emotional and cry baby sometimes. That is why I hate watching drama and “Wish Ko Lang” because they can make me cry easily just the same when I am looking back to negative experiences or I feel overwhelmed. Despite this, I am tough and I don’t let my emotions control me. I can even pretend to be happy even if I am upset. Ooops, don’t get me wrong. I am not “Tupperware”. It is just that I am trying to control my emotions especially when I am so pissed off because I don’t want to jump into situations and do or said something that I would bitterly regret in the end.

Whenever someone frustrates me I don’t let my emotions control my behavior and actions and whenever I have problems, I exclude my emotions and don’t let it control my thinking. This doesn’t mean I am controlling my emotions. I am recognizing them and act on them when deem appropriate.

I am not as thoughtful as others as I always forget friends’ birthdays but I am a good compassionate friend and can be your friend until the end. And when it comes to love, I am not afraid to show my emotions, I am very vocal and showy.

But of course, I am human and I am not perfect. Even how tough I am, there are times that I feel so down. During these times, I just cry alone and let those unwanted emotions pour. Do I love me emotionally? Yes, I love being a cry baby and I love me being tough.

This is my entry for Girls Talk. The “I love Me” theme for this month is over and I enjoyed it very much. This month’s theme help me assess and realized how I am as a person, physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I was able to see my weaknesses and realized that I need to improve the spiritual side of me especially my relationship with BRO. And for that I want to thank Kaye. Thank you, dear! I am looking forward on more exciting topics in…
