Finding a Good Technician

So how do you find a good mechanic? The ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) offers these additional tips on finding a good mechanic:
  • Start shopping for a repair facility before you need one. You can make better decisions when you are not rushed or in a panic.
  • Ask friends and associates for recommendations. Even in this high-tech era, old-fashioned word-of-mouth reputation is valuable.
  • Check with local consumer organizations about the reputation of any business you're considering, Inquire about complaints and the rate of resolution of complaints.
  • Think in advance about how you'll get to and from the shop when dropping off and picking up your vehicle. This way, you can avoid having to choose a shop based solely on location.
  • Look for shops displaying industry and Better Business Bureau membership, awards, repair rates and modern equipment.
  • Once you've chosen a shop, ask if they offer written estimates and warranties on repairs.
  • If you're having car problems, make specific notes, about sounds, odors, acceleration or mileage changes and when problems occur. Also note if they're constant or periodic, at what speed they happen and whether the vehicle is cold or warm, etc...,so you can present as much information as possible to your technician.

Weekender in Dominican Republic


The Dominican Republic, a sun-kissed island glued to Haiti, is fast becoming a hot Carribean getaway. On the southern coast is the bustling metropolis of Santo Domingo; to the east is Punta Cana, a resort hub where cheap all - inclusive tours abound. For unreal eco-adventures, head north to Puerto Plata and Cabarete.

SLEEP. Feel free to crash at Maxim Bungalows (maximbungalows.com) at Juan Dolio and Cofresi beach. These breath taking resorts feature 5 star amenities like lavish suites, resort wide wi-fi, and a 17,000 sq. foot spa. You can take a chauffeur-driven SUV to the Carribean's best golf courses or charter Maxim's own 54-foot yacht, Independence, for private open-water parties or stop at Castaway Beach, a secluded nook perfect for snorkeling and barbecuing.

DRINK. Locals and tourists alike flock to Punta Cana's Occidental Grand Hotel for Mangu' Disco (800-858-2258), a dance den featuring fire eaters and thumping house music. In Cabarete Beach, you can hang ten with the surfer set at Onno's bar (809-571-0461), then down pina coladas all night at the popular open-air bar Lax (809-710-0569).

EAT. Don't leave Santo Domingo until you've tried the sancocho (a hearty stew of meat, sweet potatoes, and cassava root) at El Conuco (809-686-0129). Big night out? Recharge with mango smoothies and burgers at EZE bar & Restaurant in Cabarete Beach (809-880-8779), then dine on ceviche and curried fish at Natura Cabanas (809-858-5822).

Manila Ocean Park



April 19, '09

As a treat, we took the kids to the park. The park is located just behind Quirino Grandstand, Luneta, Manila. Our hotel was just close to the area (Swagman Hotel) just along the corner of Flores St. and Roxas Blvd. The admission fee is 400 Php for adults and 350 Php for kids. The fun will start at the oceanarium.

The Oceanarium is considered to be a large educational facility aimed at inculcating love for the environment both for the young and old. It contains vital information on climate change and global warming as well as its effects on marine biodiversity.

The oceanarium journey:

The facility is divided into 7 parts;

2. Bahura (Reef)
3. Laot (Fishing ground)
4. Buhay na Karagatan (The Living ocean)
5. Ang Kalaliman (The Deep)
6. Pagi (Stingray)

In addition to, a multi-media facility is included mostly for kids where they can do colorings, paintings or interactive learning.

Back Home From The Philippines!


It's been a week after we arrived from our long, exhausting trip from the Philippines. Of course, it's always been a long trip, but visiting a family is all worth it after all, don't you think?

This was one of the most memorable trip I had so far with my husband, seeing all my siblings complete.

It was an all summer out activity in the beach, plus big lunch and dinners. I am looking forward to share all these once I get settled. Besides, I have to dig more of our photos, as there are so many lol!

Times Square Church



November 29, 2008 - NY Bus Tour

It was so cold when we reached New York in the morning. While walking along Broadway St., we happened to pass by Times Square Church. We got curious so we went inside to check it. We were greeted by a guy (a caretaker I guess) and my husband started asking about the church, building, pastors, etc... It was actually an opera house converted to a church. The artistic designs are still there so at a first glance, you won't think it's a church.

The history of this church is much more heart warming for me. It started all from Pastor David Wilkerson when he saw many lost souls wandering on the 42nd street of New York...pimps, drug addicts, pushers, prostitutes, etc. Being a man of God, his heart broke of what he saw, so that he looked up to God, wept and prayed about how can he help these lost souls get back to life. The answer was given...the Times Square Church was up.

Now, the church has over 8,000 people representing more than 100 different nationalities serving and praising God. It's an interdominational church so all people are welcome :). What a glorious start of the day for us. We felt we've been blessed to know one awesome place of worship and the house of God at the midst of a busy city. Nothing is impossible for God!

Rustic Furniture

Needing a furniture at home? I will be...soon :). These rustic furniture symbolize a stress free interior designs inside the home. It's kinda like you are always in communed with nature, inside your home. Besides, when you check on these furniture, they have unique designs making your home more environmental.

The Death Valley National Park


I don't know why they call this park death valley, but this long, thin valley is North America's lowest and driest place yet alos one of the most fascinating. Winter is mild, spring brings out spectacular flowers, while summer provides bragging rights for those who experience the desert heat!
In warm months, daytime temperatures frequently top 100 degress. It went even as high as 134 degrees fahrenheit at the aptly named Furnace Creek - just 2 degrees shy of a later world record in the Sahara Desert.
This national park has 3.3 million acres of deserts and mountains located on the border between California and Nevada. It has bone-dry salt pans, shifting sand dunes, wind-scoured canyons and giant alluvial fans resembling rock rivers tumbling onto the arid valley floor. Death Valley is North America's lowest spot at Badwater Basin, 282 feet below sea level, the driest place averaging less than 2 inches of rain a year.
It must be an interesting place to visit. I am curious about getting its history and getting to see what's in there. Maybe someday :).

Coping Up!

I admit I am running behind my posts nowadays. After our long trip from the Philippines, there has been so many things to be done and many thing to take care of here at home and in the Philippines. I have been becoming too busy nowadays that I coudln't even afford to visit and update my blog anymore...but I won't give up LOL!
On the other side of the news, it was sad that we can't be on the road more often anymore. My hubby no longer has trip opportunities for symposiums which means no more trips for me as well, lol! If ever we have one, it would only be a long needed vacation to the Philippines. Meanwhile, we both agreed to rest for a while from our trips since we are buying a house in the Philippines. We are saving so, no trip expenses until the house would be completely payed...well, there might be trip plans but will be rare.
I still can get the chance to share my trip experiences in the Philippines from time to time :).

Anyway, I am excited for our upcoming house we are getting...a place we call our home! :).

Rainy Manila

As of this date, we are still in the Philippines. It's been a lot of rain here since we came. Many say it's too early rainy season for a summer LOL! But the good thing is we didn't experience so much heat as what we had last 2007. It was cooler and only in the 80'sF instead of in the 90'sF as what we expected.

Anyway, rainy or sunny, we are still having fun, being with our family as well as meeting some friends. Whew! We had been busy every day for our scheduled activities but mostly for fun! Ha! Isn't it cool just being busy meeting loved ones everyday? LOL!

So much activities to be shared! Later!
