If you happen to have a basement or closed room without any ventilation, then you badly need a basement dehumidifier. It will help you with the nasty odor in your basement.
In my old work, I was assigned to an area for a little while. I need to rent a place for a couple months for that assignment. I found a basement room which is so cheap and take it, little do I know that their dehumidifier is broken and was stuck for days on the unwanted smell. Good thing the owner took action and fixed it right away.


The surfer dare devils are on the lose again. Look at the photo, I was able to snap one on the action. There are also few brave souls out there waiting for the big wave. This is the year for the perfect huge waves for competitions.
Eddi Aikau or Quicksilver competition was successful this years and so other surfing competitions. North shore was jump packed the whole winter season, though we still have some good swell this time of spring.

On Diet Again

Are you one of those people who keep buying weight loss supplements and do not see any result? Before you buy another set of diet pills make sure you read the review online, these will have make the best choice and will help you save money. I am guilty about that too, I admit O have waste a lot of money on diet pills that did not work on me. I even feel sick one time because I never read the labels. Be wise and make sure you read the review and make sure that it's Safe, effective and affordable.

Linens & Linens


I don't really care about lines before. What I care about is reasonable price and soft to the touch. But then, lately I have learned a lot about linens, like it's materials, made from what country, tread counts and so on. But still I don't care where it's made and the chemicals they have used during it's process.
All I want now is a blend type of materials, 60% cotton with 40% polyester. It's soft to the touch and to my skin, does not wrinkle that much and I'm happy with it so far. Oh! thread counts, well as long as it's 300-500 treads counts, beyond 500 in my personal opinion is too heavy and un-breathable.

Compare it

Have you experience of buying something where there's no way you can compare the prices and ended up spending more on it. It's hard when you cannot compare prices because you will always end up paying more for a not so good brand. Just like when you are buying diet pills and you do not know what to get, its better if you have choices where you can compare prices and its effectiveness. Before I get new stuff for me or for the family, I always make sure I check online reviews for comparison, just like the diet pill comparisons online, it helps me a lot.


I'm playing another game. I am having withdrawals on YoVille and here I am again caught on another game.
This is "Faunasphere," where you play with your animal avatar and we are called "caretakers." I get caught on this game because it's like Yovilee that you will have a home though in different way. You can decorate your home and buy decoration and do your sphere your way. What I like most is how you get your "LUX" or money. It's easy and fun to get money just dig roots and fight with the Sphere pollution. I also love the challenges and goals that gives you rewards, as of now I already opened the 6 world gates, I'm still not getting tired going back to some of the GOALS. Fun, fun, fun.

We achieve it

I have read that many people take more than 10 different types of diet pills and still failed to achieve their goal of losing weight. Count me and my friends on that list because we have to so many weight loss pills and yes we failed to achieved our goal. But then, after consulting some people who successfully lose weight and did some online research, I finally found the best diet pills online at I have shared this to my friends too.

Sunset Beach

The husband had to do something at North Shore. since I'm off from work he asked me to go with him. It's getting warm here even on night time.
North shore is still packed with tourist and locals due to the good swell. It's the surfer's haven, I took this photo at Sunset beach and it was so much fun watching the surfer's way out the ocean waiting for the big wave. There's life guard jet skie towing them in and out the ocean. I also saw one guy dragging his surf board in two pieces, I can imagine how the wave will pound you by the reefs, good thing only his surf board is broken in two, not his bones.

Facial Wash

Lately I have noticed that my face is getting smoother and clearer each day. I give the credit to my sister who recommended me to check out an online review site about acne face wash. I read it thoroughly and made the best choice in my life; I finally found the right acne product for my facial skin. I also recommend the online review site to my friends who have acne problems that bother them.

Female cochineal beetle, ground up is used as a red dye in food
Do you have any idea about this beetle? This is cochineal beetle found in Central and South America. This beetles live in cactus and if ground up it produces red color.
Now for the fun part. Have you ever wondered where does most of your food ingredients come from? or where it originates or what makes its color? Well, if you are wondering where your "Red Food Color" came from, then the answer is in front of you. Red food color comes from "Dactylopius Coccus" BEETLE is used by Aztecs and native American as red-dye, and it's still used today. Aside from food, these pigments are also used in many cosmetics, shampoos and even fruit juice!If you want to make sure you aren't ingesting beetles look for an OU symbol or K- designating that the item is Kosher (yes there are even kosher cosmetics)

FD&C Red Dye #40 ( known as Red #40) is safe and insect free.
I therefore conclude that it's better to leave most of our food ingredients origins as mystery. ;)

This might be healthy dinner because you have fresh veggies and lean chicken. I will run down the recipe here, I promise it's yummy. My husband loves it so much, in fact I just make it as appetizer but end up becoming our dinner because I add rice noodle to balance it.

3 tbsp oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into tiny cubes
2/3 cup mushrooms (optional)
1 cup water chestnuts
1 tsp minced garlic
1-2 lettuce heads
2 of 1.32oz vermicelli noodle (soften in boiling water) arrange in the serving dish & set aside

Special dipping sauce:
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar (optional)
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp or 3-5 drops of sesame oil
1 tbsp hot mustard
1 tsp garlic (optional)
2 red chili paste

Stir fry sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar

Make the special sauce by dissolving the sugar in water in a small bowl.
Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice and sesame oil.
Mix well and refrigerate this sauce until you're ready to serve.
Combine the hot water with the hot mustard and set this aside as well.
Eventually add your desired measurement of mustard and garlic chili sauce to the special sauce mixture to pour over the wraps.
Bring oil to high heat in a wok or large frying pan.
Saute chicken breasts for 4 to 5 minutes per side or done.
Remove chicken from the pan and cool.
Keep oil in the pan, keep hot.
As chicken cools mince water chestnuts and mushrooms to about the size of small peas.
Prepare the stir fry sauce by mixing the soy sauce, brown sugar, and rice vinegar together in a small bowl.
When chicken is cool, mince it as the mushrooms and water chestnuts are.
With the pan still on high heat, add another Tbsp of vegetable oil.
Add chicken, garlic, onions, water chestnuts and mushrooms to the pan.
Add the stir fry sauce to the pan and saute the mixture for a couple minutes then serve on top of the noodle.

Top lettuce with the chicken mixture with noodle.
Top with"Special Sauce", wrap and ENJOY!


We will visit my husband's great grand ma for a mini family reunion next weekend. I am so sure that most of the family members will bring wine and good food. My husband and I decided to bring a bunch of good cigars for us to enjoy after dinner. We usually have a separate place for adults to catch up and enjoy the wine and cigar, while the kids are enjoying themselves at the playroom. I might order extra cigars to put in goodie bags.
