Yes it's true, Elena and Stefan are back in each others arms. After all the things that happened between them, they are still deeply in love.

Klaus Taking Advantage of Caroline

                                    My Fave TVD Vampire Love Team "Tyler and Caroline"

This couple has been my favorite....Tyler is so freaking hot and Caroline is such a sweety!

On the The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premier "Growing Pains", Caroline has no idea that Klaus possessed Tyler's body....in this scene, Tyler called Caroline "LOVE" which is Klaus' trade mark....Caroline then realized it wasn't Tyler but Klaus. I love this line from Caroline "Now I have to sanitize my mouth!".

My sister and her Japanese husband together with their son came home and had a short vacation here in Davao City. She was looking for a hotel to stay overnight and so I suggested the newly opened D'Leonor Hotel. We are impressed with the place and how affordable the prices were for each room. There is a complimentary breakfast for two plus tickets for either zip line or wave pool, of course they chose wave pool. The hotel is inside the theme park, amenities include Mini Zoo, Wishing Well, Basketball, Clubhouse, Food court & Park, Badminton Court, 600 Steps Walk, Zip line, Wave pool and now ATV track. The inland resort is located at Communal, Purok 5, Davao City.

How Essential is Amino Acids to Our Body?

How Essential is Amino Acids to Our Body?

How essential is amino acids to our body? Protein will keep you dynamic and powerful. All individuals who are dynamic like sports players are getting amino acids every day. Would you believe that individuals who want to reduce bodyweight need to take meals with high in amino acids like meat? It is because getting amino acids will cause you to feel complete and dynamic. Protein can be taken as tablets or in meals type like protein bars which are now available in the marketplace.

There are many shops that offer dietary products and you can even purchase them on the internet but what shop has a good reputation? Many shops offer less quality items that you are just spending your money purchasing them. Protein products are required if you are an energetic person.

Anyway before purchasing an item it is better to see what other individuals are saying about their items. Reading an evaluation or recommendations from customers is very essential. These individuals are actually composing what they knowledgeable when using the items.

Toothache Home Remedies

Ouch my tooth aches and it feels like hell! What are the remedies available at home for tooth ache? Toothaches may be caused by a variety of problems such as dental cavities, exposed tooth rot, a cracked tooth, gum diseases, and so on. Pain from a toothache can vary from mild to severe and from sharp and sporadic pain to dull and persistent.

Mine is a cracked tooth and it feels sharp and it's affecting my right ear. Most of the times I drink pain relievers such as mefenamic and naproxen to ease the pain. Next week , I'll be seeing my dentist to have it check and have it removed if necessary.

While drinking medicines over the counter you may also want to try these toothache home remedies I found over the internet : Toothache Remedies & Relief

1. Cloves in Toothache: Chew cloves or rub clove oil on the tooth. Chew a clove slowly with the aching tooth to release its juice and leave there for half an hour. Repeat 2-3 times. When applying clove oil you should be careful because too much of it can damage your teeth. Your pharmacist can give you a safe clove oil for your teeth.

2. Salt water gargle recipe for sore tooth: Mix 1 tablespoon of common salt with 1 cup of warm water. Take a mouthful of this water and move it around the aching tooth. Salt is an excellent astringent. so salt water disinfects the tooth. You can do gargle with this water to act as a salt water sore throat remedy. It is a good idea to do salt-water gargle in the morning and evening to prevent sore tooth and throat.

3. Garlic in Toothache: Peel and crush a clove of fresh garlic and mix it with peanut butter. Apply it to the aching tooth and keep it there for 5 minutes.
You can also use the garlic oil. Crush a clove of a garlic and wrap with a small piece of gauze and press hard until garlic releases its oil. Place the gauze on the tooth that is hurting for five minutes. Any longer and the garlic will burn the skin on inside of your mouth. Repeat 3-4 times with a gap of an hour.

4. Ice in Toothpain: It is best to numb the nerves in your tooth by using ice or ice pack to stop the pain. Just wrap 4-5 ice cubes in a towel (or take a ice pack) and place it on your face over the side of paining tooth.

5. Add some lime juice to asafetida (hing) spice powder. Soak a piece of cotton and hold it on the tooth and gum.

6. Burn some turmeric (haldi) spice sticks, make a fine powder and use as toothpowder.

7. Chew a ginger piece slowly with the aching tooth/teeth to release its juice and leave there for half an hour. Repeat 2-3 times.

8. Take a papaya leaf stick, scrape the bark, then sqeeze the juice out into the paining tooth. Repeat 2-3 times. After some time, the pain should disappear.

9. Drink the juice of 2-3 star fruit twice a day to get relief from the tooth pain.

10. Boil 5 gram of peppermint and a pinch of salt in 1 cup of water. Drink it to relieve toothache and other pains. You can use peppermint mouthwash.

11. Pour a few drops of Vanilla extract on the paining tooth.

12. Pour a few drops oil of oregano on the paining tooth or gum.

13. Gargle with a mouthwash.

14. Soak a cotton ball with 100 proof whiskey and place it on the tooth that is paining. Leave it there until all the whiskey comes out.

15. To use this treatment, take one real Crush one aspirin tablet and put the powder directly on the affected tooth for half an hour.

You can choose either ways but make sure to see your dentist.

Kidney For A Living

-->
Late last night while working on my assignment, I watched National Geographic Channel. The show was all about taboo and Philippines was one of the featured countries with such belief. Actually what was featured for me is not some kind of a taboo. It's more of survival. People tend to do anything to survive from poverty, from problems.

There's a place in the Philippines where most of the people sell their Kidneys to black market for them to earn money. Yeah that's true, I couldn't believe they actually did it. For sure, those people are helpless and could not find other ways to earn money. Some of them actually do have jobs but their wage is not enough to support their family.

Picture from CBSNews

Doctors said that taking the other kidney may cause some long term effects which are not beneficial for human. The operation itself is a painful one. It takes time to heal the wounds. After the operation most of them can't go back to their old jobs especially when it includes physical strength such as lifting heavy objects, so they need to find another job that is much lighter and easier to do. Selling their Kidney is just a temporary financial relief.

It was even mentioned that this act was even legalized by the government before and I thought that was so ridiculous. Currently the government banned the selling of kidneys after seeing the negative effects. The government must take care of this; they should create more bills that people would benefit in a long term. Instead of corrupting people’s money, they should rather give it to the poor. Anyway when we die we can't bring our money with us.




Problems with Bad Breath

What causes bad breath and what can we do to prevent bad breath. Bad breath has been a problem of many both teenagers and adults. We need good oral hygiene as we are not baby's anymore who have angels breath, it's as important as our looks does. Halitosis known as bad breath can affect anyone at any given time. It is such a very embarrassing problem for most people who posses it. Commonly bad breath can be prevented and treated easily, however there are some medical conditions that may also cause bad breath such as Chronic halitosis that may indicate an underlying medical concern that should be addressed by your dentist or medical doctor.

The Food We Eat and Digestion may also be a cause for bad breath as it can adversely affect our breath. Odors from certain spices,onions,garlic, and cabbage may result in halitosis when the suspected food is absorbed into the blood stream after digestion. When the blood has transferred to the lungs, the smell from the food is evident when you exhale. Since digestion comes next to eating, it can be another cause of bad breath. Gasses that are produced during the digestive process may escape through our mouth, giving off the odor it produces. Poor digestion resulting in constipation and bowel disorders can likely contribute to bad breath, resulting from the gasses that are produced during this process.

Another possible cause of bad breath is Dry Mouth or Xerostomia. Xerostomia is a condition that causes a decrease in the production of saliva, resulting in a dry mouth. There are several factors that may cause xerostomia, some of which may need to be treated by your doctor. Saliva is essential in providing lubrication to the mouth to allow for proper chewing and swallowing. It naturally cleanses the mouth and helps to prevent cavities. Having dry mouth causes bad breath since the food particles remain trapped in the mouth to rot and cause the unpleasant smell when you exhale.

Another well known contributor for bad breath is Cigarette Smoking. Smoking is also a major cause of periodontal disease. The smoke produced from a cigarette is inhaled into the lungs, and then exhaled through the nose and mouth. This causes an immediate effect on your breath. The chemicals and residue from the smoke remains in your mouth and airways. Continued use of cigarettes contribute to gum disease, which is a major cause of bad breath.

Whey Protein For Body Building

It's been a month already since I went to the GYM with a goal of trimming my body and staying healthy. For the first week I noticed that with proper diet and gym exercise I lost 4 lbs in a matter of 5 days. But as I pushed through the following weeks I was able to gain weight already which puzzled me so much. I then asked my gym instructor for advice.

Proper diet plus gym exercise is the best to trim down your body and lose weight. But he added that if I want, I could take "whey protein" supplements for faster effects. I just bought and hoping I could see results in a short period.

What is Whey Protein? I did some research to satisfy myslef and found this article about whey protein. According to Whey Protein Institute; Whey protein is a high quality protein powder from cow's milk. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available. You can read more about whey protein and it's benefits on their website : www.wheyoflife.org

The problem with me is not having the ability to control myself from eating foods that hinders my ability to lose weight. With perseverance and discipline reaching my target of losing just 10lbs is not impossible. If others can then why can't I?

Diet Pills - Safe or Not?

My-oh-my....girls are just too conscious of their figure. Every girl I know wants to have a 36-24-36 Vital Statistics. Is that possible to achieve? Well for some girls that isn't hard especially if it's genetically inherited. But for others who are not as lucky enough, they really should work hard for it. Some resort to diet pills but is it safe to take those pills?

I've read a lot of forums about diet pills and even tried it myself. Before taking the pill I tried to research it on the internet, its effectiveness and side effects. Chinese diet pills are the most popular so far. It's affordable and effective. All my life, I never take prohibited drugs but taking the pill seems like I’m high on drugs. I stop using it coz I have strong heart palpitations, I can't breath, I can't eat I just drink a lot of water which I think is good, but the worst of all; I have rashes coming out all over my body. I have history of allergy before and it's fatal. I was sent to the hospital due to allergy. Yes I really did lose weight but it has negative side effects on me.

I was also scared of the comments I've read on the forums saying that diet pills can cause cancer. There was a testimony about her aunt who died of cancer resulting from diet pills intake. I just wasted my money buying the pill since I didn't even consume it all. I gave the remaining pills to my friend. She even consumed 4 more packs of it and now she has a slimmer body. I am afraid for what negative side effects the pill may do to her body. She may not notice it now but we never know what happens in the future.

Kawaii Kara Chan








My pretty niece....all grown up now. I remember the days when I'm with you in Nihon and you're just 5 or 6 years old then. We'll sneak and go to mini stop when your otosan is asleep to buy some candies and bubblegum. When we woke up the following morning, the bubblegum stuck into your hair and I'm in big trouble. I really had a hard time removing that bubblegum from your hair. One day I told you that your otosan is kinda old already then asked you to keep the words I said between us, you agree to keep it and told me that you even kept the secret your otosan said about me that I'm the second fattest among us inside the house haha... I really can't forget about that. You are my best bud, you keep my loneliness away....such a wonderful memories together back then.

This day is my grandma's supposedly 90th birthday if she's still alive...I made this video when she died but wasn't able to upload it. Since it's her birthday, I thought this is the best time to post the video to commemorate her life when she's still with us.

Justice for Biggel!

Justice for Biggel!
Click the photo above to direct to it's original page.

I did not expect this though I read a lot of comments from Facebook that there were incidents that Tin Patrimonio's votes has been redirected and were credited to Pamu thus making Tin the second to the last evicted housemate. I've been searching for evidence such as photos to prove the hearsay  not until this photo surfaced and circulated over the internet. Once you voted for a housmate there is a confirmation right after you send your vote , like if you vote for SLATER the confirmation should be like this: "Nakuha namin ang boto mo to save SLATER! Isang beses lang pwedeng bumoto gamit ang sim/number na ito. P2.50/txt."  But in this case,  it's very clear that SLATER's vote has been redirected and was credited to PAMU! If and only if, this photo was not edited.  Tsk tsk if there is any truth behind this very sensitive issue PBB staffs and officials should take action on this.  BIGGEL should have been the first big placer if not because of SLATER's votes that has been credited to PAMU.

Here are some of the user comments I gathered from Facebook: Click the photos below to be able to clearly read the comments.











What can you say? Do you think this is true?  If so, I pity BIGGEL and his family and fans who supported him :(

Ice Giants Madness

After an all day long of malling, strolling  & sight seeing around Davao City, we finally come to an end...time to rest our feet, cool down and chillax! These young ladies are a sucker for ice cream so I decided to bring them to this famous Ice cream parlor called "Ice Giants".  Basically made up of chocolate ice cream, ice and mixtures of marsh mallows, choco sticks and some chocolate candies, more than enough for the five of us, we almost didn't finish it all.

Nails Done!

Nails Done!



It's been a while since I last self-manicured my nails. Getting my nails done by expert nail artist isn't that expensive...I'm just too coward to let other people touch my nails. I'm just glad that I managed to have a spare time to do it myself.  I love the color though I rarely use it on my nails. As a full-time mom and housewife doing all household chores at home, I seldom gave my nails a makeover coz apparently I'll just break them up not unless a special occasion is coming up.

Aliyah's Graduation Dinner @ Punong Restaurant



Aliyah's Graduation Dinner @ Punong Restaurant






After the graduation program of my baby girl we dine out and invited some of our closest relatives on both sides. It's been a dream come true for me since I've been dying to go and try the said Seafood restaurant. The place is great and one good thing is, it's not that crowded but you need to have your own vehicle to be able to go there. The only problem we encountered were the mosquitoes and there's lots of them. There really is a need to bring an insect repellent to protect you from mosquito bites. Aside from the mosquitoes, there are no other problems at all. Over all, we had a sumptuous dinner in a price that's just right!
