Marble Or Granite?

If you want to have a luxurious looking kitchen, then better choose ether Marble or granite for the finishing. They both have this glossy natural effect which can definitely makes your kitchen more appealing. It is true that both of these finishing material are quite expensive compare to other but the quality and the durability of marble and granite is simply incomparable.
But which of these two material is the best and highly recommendable for your kitchen? They said that both of these materials provide the same quality however, Granite is much durable. Marble is porous which is therefore much prone to staining but of course it depends upon how frequently you maintain it.
Nevertheless, both of them are still highly recommended and it is all up to you whether you choose Marble or Granite for your kitchen. They are both available in many varieties and colors too. I think it doesn't matter whether you choose Marble or granite for your kitchen, what matters most is that you regularly keep them clean. I think there are cleaning solution specially made for these materials to keep them clean and shiny everyday.

Did you know that Ben is a song written for a 1972 Horror Movie with the same name? Ben is actually a A killer rat. It is a sequel film of Willard, another horror film.
Check this video to find out who's Ben.


And now, here's my song entry for this Week. The film's title theme song, "Ben," performed by Michael Jackson, became a #1 pop hit single. Later included on Jackson's album of the same name, "Ben" won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song is calm and mellow, which actually contrasts with the horror content of the film.

Responsible Driving

As a car owner, you are responsible to take care of your car by maintaining it on it's good condition. A responsible driver cannot just be measured on how disciplined he is on driving but also by how frequent he check his car condition. It doesn't matter if it's a brand new or a second hand car, what matters most is that all the parts of your car are in good condition. Every single parts of spare of your car has their own function and they should be checked in a regular basis.
The car engine for example, should be checked before you drive. All car owners should know what RRR stands for. It is Remove, repair, and replace. If you know how to operate or troubleshoot your car then you should follow these RRR processes in order to determine the exact issue of your car. You can also bring your car to a repair shop near you. Upgrade the engine if necessary for better performance.
The brake is one of the most important parts that should be checked regularly too. If you ignore that simple brake problem, it could get worst and can put you in danger. Remember that accident can happen in the most unexpected time and place. Brake can actually be your life saving tool.
Another important spare of your car would be the car headlights. They will serve as your guide whenever you hit the road at night. It can also give signal to the driver ahead of you. So if ever you decided to replace them, replace them with better brands. Same thing goes with the back lights.
Replacing or upgrading the parts of your car will not just make it more appealing but also will ensure your safety. Happy Driving everyone!

Tony Hawk's Underground

I'm just Done playing this game. not so new but worth playing with. Here's my review of
TONY HAWK'S UNDERGROUND 2 ~ PSP

http://pspmedia.ign.com/psp/image/article/596/596571/tony-hawks-underground-2-remix-20050316094619469_640w.jpg
Those familiar with THUG 2 on the consoles will find the PSP version very much the same. This could either be a good or bad thing, depending on what you expect from the game. For starters, THUG 2 remix is as good as the PS2 version, with some extras thrown in for good measure. You skate around 13 different cities, and out of the 13, four tracks were created just for the PSP. There are two main modes in the game, Story Mode and Classic Mode. Story mode takes you around the world with either Bam Margera or Tony Hawk as your teammate. While on a World Destruction Tour, you get to do all sorts of silly stunts, such as destroying objects or just plain creating havoc. Classic Mode is all about collecting the letters S-K-A-T-E aroun a map within a given time limit. The controls work well on the PSP and allow you to move with almost the same freestyling ease as on the PS2 version.
I also like that the maps are filled with lots of objects that you can interact with. The game's best feature is the ability to make your player look exactly like you. Just import your photo into the game by downloading it from the Memory Stick!

And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street! is a book written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss and Robert Carington, first published in 1937. It was Seuss's first children's book, originally titled "A Story That No One Can Beat,". Did you know that the manuscript was rejected by over 43 publishing companies (precise numbers vary, even from Seuss himself, who counted 27 and 28) but was eventually published by Vanguard Press. Seuss has stated that he nearly burned the manuscript before its publication after being rejected by so many publishers. In this story a young boy walking home from school, and on seeing a simple horse and cart, embellishes it in his mind by first changing the animal, then the conveyance, then adds passengers, and so on, until the horse and cart are transformed into a veritable parade. This is a quite enjoyable flight of imagination. Unfortunately, the story opens with the boy's father admonishing him against lying, and when he arrives home his father's quelling response keeps the boy from sharing his story. Young children do know the difference between truth and fiction, so the conflict between the boy and his father is troubling. Either the character in the book is actually given to deception, or his father is suppressive of his imagination. Both interpretations would suggest potentially serious problems in a real father-son relationship because they evince a lack of trust. The tall tale is wonderful, but the dynamic between father and son isn't one I want to have emulated in our family

Roofing

Our roofs can be made in different kind of materials. Others are using tiles, others are using iron sheets while others are making use of that Terra Cotta material. The reason why i know that Terra Cotta is a roof material is because that is the only material i can remember from my Civil Technology Subject way back in high school. Oh did i say i got a certificate of Recognition from that class? haha but now i feel so ashamed for not remembering my lectures.
Anyway, let go back to the roof thing... We are actually using G.I Sheets for our house(Galvanized Iron) which is probably the most typical type of roof here in our country. Well, obviously because these GI sheets are the cheapest of their kind. Oh and they are easy to install too. Just apply water proof paint and it can be as appealing as what other type of roofs are.
Here, you do not have to worry about the loose or missing shingles. You also have not to worry about cracks since sheets are made of metal. However, GI Sheets have many flaws too especially if it is being installed improperly. They are prone to roof leeks when the nails are being placed improperly. They become rusty easily too especially when the paint you applied is not high in quality. Installing a GI Sheets follows a pattern. One should be over another in orderly manner. So i suggest that you let the experts do the job like those well trusted Roofers Portland Service in Oregon. They know what to do and they can fix your roof in no time!

Pimp My Ride

Are you familiar with the "Pimp My Ride" show? I used to watch this show before and i am big fan. This is a show where they take a car in a poor condition and they restore and customized it to make it more appealing than ever. It's like making a treasure out of a trash.
Actually, we had a local version of this show here in the country before and believe me or not, i submitted as many entries as i can just to include my hopeless old car but unfortunately non of those entries were chosen by that program.
Well, we really don't have to wait that long just to have that extreme car make over that we've always wanted for our car because there are so many car painting shop out there for you. Just like what that Car Painting Portland Shop in Oregon provides.
I'm not so sure how much a car painting costs but if you are going to get this kind of service, just make sure that you bring your car to a reliable one. Make sure that the material they will use are high in standards so that you will not encounter any troubles in the near future.
I think if you really want to make your car more appealing, having a car make over from time to time is advisable. So are you ready to pimp your ride now?

Who is Dr. Seuss?


We're done summing up all the James Cameron Films and now we're going to have another theme. After the movie reviews of James Cameron films, we're going to explore the world of Children books in the nature of the one and only Dr. Seuss!

Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer and cartoonist most widely known for his children's books written under the pen names Dr. Seuss, Theo LeSieg and, in one case, Rosetta Stone. He published 44 children's books, which were often characterized by imaginative characters, rhyme, and frequent use of trisyllabic meter. His most celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Numerous adaptations of his work have been created, including eleven television specials, three feature films, and a Broadway musical.
This amazing guy celebrated his birthday this March and this monthly theme is my tribute for him.
How about you, what is your most favorite Dr Seuss' story?

What is My Lucky Charm

I never considered myself as a lucky one after all the series of unfortunate events happen in my life in the past 3 years. But of course, just like what everybody said, always be optimistic and always look forward to the better side of thing.
Of all the test that i took from Blothings, this is the most accurate results that i ever get from them.



You Are an Origami Crane



You are creative and good with your hands. You are more of an artist than you know.

You may not be politically conservative, but your behavior is conservative. You don't like to rock the boat.



You are truly caring. You're helpful and giving - eager to be a true friend.

You are intelligent and skilled, but you're also modest. You don't like to boast or brag.



Sometimes, i am really not sure if it is right to bring my car into a repair shop or it is much better to fix it myself or ask someone fro the neighbor to help me. I know that fixing the issue myself could be a bit risky and i do not want to make the condition of my car even worst. I also don't have any courage to ask someone from the neighbor and help me.
We just can't deny the fact that there are some repair shops today that are not providing high quality service. In fact, some of them are taking advantage of their customer. They used to give us fake or false findings and results. They will make a simple car issue to an exaggerated one. They turn a simple issue to a horrible disaster.
Of course, the customers will have no choice but to pay for the expensive repair fee (not to mention the materials that you have to buy in case that you need to replace a spare) for the sake of having their car fixed. Well, not all the auto repair shop is like this. There are still some honest and well trusted shops like the Auto Repair Federal Way in Washington. I just went to visit their official web page last night and i found out that the company has been serving their customers since 1982. It is actually a family owned business and has been in this industry for a very long time. They are well known for providing high quality of service. No wonder why there are so many positive feedback about them.

Have you ever wonder when exactly the right time to clean our gutters? Spring is the most perfect time to clean the gutters because a lot of leaves fell from the trees during the Fall Season so i think it is absolutely the right time to sweep all those leaves away from the roof and gutters.
It is also advisable to clean your gutter before the winter arrives. This house chore is not just a matter of cleaning your house but also ensuring the safety of your family at home.
If the gutter is not working properly, it will cause some serious problems that can damage your house. And when we are talking about damages, we are also dealing with the huge amount of money that you are going to spend for the repair.
I'm sure you do not want to ruin your budget simply because you failed to clean your gutter right? It is actually simple to clean the gutter, what it takes are proper precautions and safety. You will be working on the top of your roof here and safety is the most important thing to consider than anything else. It would be great to ask someone from your family or from your neighbor to assist you or much better if you get something like the Gutter Cleaning Portland Services and let the expert do the job for you. I actually prefer this service than doing the risky job myself.

Avatar

Avatar is a 2009 Americanepic science fiction film written and directed by James Cameron, and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver. The film is set in the mid-22nd century, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system.The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na'vi—a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora. The film's title refers to the genetically engineered Na'vi-human hybrid bodies used by a team of researchers to interact with the natives of Pandora. When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.


Aliens Of the Deep

Aliens of the Deep is a 2005 documentary film, directed in part by James Cameron and filmed in the IMAX 3D format. It was produced by Walden Media and Buena Vista Pictures. Cameron teams with NASA scientists to explore the Mid-Ocean Ridges, submerged chains of mountains in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans that are home to some of the planet's more unusual forms of life. Cameron joins up aboard the Russian research vessel Akademik Mstislav Keldysh with a group of NASA scientists, as well as some American marine biologists, to investigate ten hydrothermal vents in both the Atlantic and Pacific. The vents have their own unique ecosystem, which support diverse organisms such as giant tube worms, swarms of blind white crabs, and vast amounts of shrimp which are capable of "seeing" water that is heated by the vents. These creatures do not require sunlight like other organisms, and instead obtain their energy from the vents. They are able to survive in the superheated and sulfurous water. Because of this, the documentary suggests that this is what life beyond Earth might look like. As some alien ecosystems are likely to be a lot harsher than a typical terrestrial ecosystem, these exotic vents provide an insight into some of the forms that alien life might take.

Dining in at McDonalds

Actually, i prefer Jollibee than Mcdonalds. I love Jollibee's burger and their spaghetti too. But then since i can't find any Jollibee Branch when i went to my tita at Molino Bacoor, i decided to drop by at Mcdo. So here i took some photos of what i ordered.


Chocolate Sundae ( I will give this dessert a 2 thumbs up!! Better than Jollibee)

The Spaghetti is soooo American Style .... i just hate it actually.


The Chicken is quite spicy but not bad at all.

I admit, i am really a mama's boy. I grew up being so close to my mom and i really know her from head to know. Sometimes i ask some advices fro her. Whenever i'm down, she's always there to comfort me and whenever i'm in trouble, she's there to guide me. I just love her so much and it will not be a big surprise if i grow up to be like her to my kids.



You Are Totally Like Your Mom



You and your mom are practically clones.

You think alike, and you even seem to read each other's minds.

And while you get along well now, you probably fought when you were a teenager.

You're definitely you're mother's child... and that's just fine with you.


A Question From Mr "?"


I was in a forum last night because i am about to ask something about the thesis that i am working on when suddenly this topic took my attention. This guy is asking if being a Janitor is bad. Well, somehow this is a silly question because we all know what the answer is right? But aybe something is bothering this guy that's why he raised this question in a forum to know what everybody thinks about being a janitor.
Being a janitor is not a BAD thing!!! I can tell you that because my Uncle is working as a custodian for almost a decade now and he's very proud of it. Being a janitor is much better than being unemployed you know! You should also be proud of it because Janitor is a profession that is honest, legal, and the most important of all, it is a noble job!
And i don't see any reason to be ashamed of. I don't mind working as a Janitor either! In fact, Janitor is really an in-demand job. Most people are really grabbing those opportunities abroad to work as janitors.
So Mr "?" (i dare not to mention his name but i replied over his forum that i will make a post about this), you should not put yourself down and be proud instead. Or if you are just planning to apply as a Janitor, then i suggest you apply directly on a janitorial services company so that you will be trained properly. Who knows? You could be one of those janitors that provide a very satisfying high quality services like the Janitorial Services Seattle Washington has.
I hope this answers your question Mr "?". Have a great day!

This is one of my favorite country songs from Martina McBride and probably one of the saddest songs ever. The song tackles about Child abuse.

You all know guys that mom is getting more serious on her Tamales business and in fact, we just got some additional orders from her new customers last week. For those who are not familiar with the dish, Tamales is actually originated from Mexico and is originally named as Tamal. Though my mom's tamales is a dish she inherit from our grandma. It is being cooked and served in a Filipino way too. We're very happy for her and for the success of her business. It is so nice to know that she now have something to do to keep herself busy than tiring herself up in doing the daily house chores. I think it is the right time for us to help her in managing this growing business. Since i am a blogger and i used to stay online almost everyday, i am thinking of making a website exclusively for her business. This is a great way to showcase not just her Tamales but also some of her special recipes. It is also a perfect opportunity to attract online customers. Almost all businesses today are being linked online and they are all targeting the online customers. Almost everyone now has computers at home and most transactions today are being done online. Creating an online business will be a big risk knowing that the competition in the web market is getting tougher everyday. But again, this is business and risk is a part of it.

Well, i'm sure mom can manage to attract many customers online knowing that Tamales is seldom introduced in the market today. Well, i'm sure there's affordable and cheap business web hosting for a beginner like us online. Any suggestion guys?

Ghosts of the Abyss

Ghosts of the Abyss is a 2003 documentary film released by Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media. It was Disney's first film produced in 3-D and was directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker James Cameron after his Oscar winning film Titanic. During August and September, 2001, Cameron and a group of scientists stage an expedition to the wreck of the Titanic, and dive in Russian deep-submersibles to obtain more detailed images than anyone has before. With the help of two small, purpose-built remotely-operated vehicles, nicknamed "Jake" and "Elwood", the audience too can see inside the Titanic and with the help of CGI, audiences can view the ship's original appearance superimposed on the deep-dive images. Also along for the ride Cameron invites friend and actor Bill Paxton who played Brock Lovett in the 1997 film. He narrates the event through his eyes. The film itself was premiered for IMAX 3D and was also nominated for a BFCA award for Best Documentary. The submersibles Mir 1 and Mir 2 carried the Ghosts of the Abyss team on twelve dives.
