Deep Cleaning Shavers For Men

My husband never leaves a grocery or a convenient store without checking the razors section. Sometimes, he would be buying another pack (disposable) good for couple weeks. I understand because he maintains a beard and he is particular about it. I am glad he maintains a good hygiene with that ;). 

 But I am glad I discovered about these razors that I saw online. I know it has a price difference with those disposable ones, but they are reasonable enough, quality wise. I actually trust my husband's judgement when it comes to shopping for his own personal items and price is not a big deal for him as long as the item he's buying is quite worth it. He is particular for good quality and endurance. So, I am quite sure, this link would be worth recommending for him.

Oh, and Black Friday is fast approaching!  ;)

"Moses" @ Sight & Sound's Millenium Theater

Me at the lobby of Millennium Theater showing "Moses"

This is one way of making you spiritually enriched, being a Christian.
We all know the story about Moses in the Old Testament. He was more than just a Biblical icon. He was an ordinary man who had his flaws and weaknesses, struggles ad was much like an ordinary person like us who tried to find his personal identity with God.

The show "Moses" is one of the Bible's most epic sagas that comes to life through this all new adventurous presentation by the Sight & Sound. In the show, you can journey back in time as you'll witness the moment God first speaks to Moses at the burning bush, and also experience God's awe-inspiring power as you sit in the midst of the parted Red Sea!
You can also feel the celebration of the Israelites as they brush past you on their path to freedom ;).

Don't miss watching this action-packed story as you discover God's unique plan for the first time on the Sight & Sound stage.
The show comes in 2 Acts, in which Act 1 has 8 scenes, while Act 2 has 9 scenes.

The life of Moses is truly an epic. Visual and sound effects of each scenes are made through computer-based 3D modeling, then these produced equipments out of the 3D models were constructed, - painted, welded and handcrafted in details.
Owe it all to the Sight & Sound staff.
The theater has been ding a great step on their mission on moving people's hearts, mind and spirit by bringing the Bible to life on stage through the power of story.

Kudos to all of Sight & Sound's blend of creative talents who continue to have passion to share the love of Christ.
It's God's way of letting you use your spiritual gifts through the Holy Sprit.
Thank you for continuing to spread the Good News & God's promises.

St. Maarten Island Tour

I would definitely agree that St. Maarten is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Caribbean. Did you know that this island was mostly popular for salt? It was because during the 17th century when the Dutch settlers were still living in this island, they started to harvest salt from the Great Salt Pond where they export it back to Europe.
It was also during that time that the natives called the island "Land of Salt" or "Soualiga".
It's probably one of the reasons why they called the island "Land of Salt" because the Europeans started craving for salt, where they would rely on the place for getting salt, - a must have ingredient of food until today.

As you explore Philipsburg, the charming capital of St. Maarten, you'll be seeing the Dutch influences back to the colonial days, as you walk through the narrow roads with pastel-colored houses which are still intact. These houses still reflects the colonial architectural designs with 2nd storey verandas and flower-filled courtyards.

The St. Maarten Island Tour is one way of further exploring the area in order to visit the two-sides of the island; - the Dutch and the French sides.
You will also get the chance to explore more at Marigot, - the French capital, and Philipsburg, the Dutch capital. This is a great overview to see the uniqueness of these two islands!

This narrated, scenic tour ride will bring you to view the Great Salt Pond, and as you continue, you will see spectacular views of the Orient Beach and its neighboring islands. You will see more charming towns of Orleans as well as while you continue going your way, passing the lovely town of Grand Case going to Marigot (French side).

Once you reach Marigot, you will be allowed to explore both the outdoor markets and boutiques in the area. The outdoor markets are all around the Port of Marigot, and some boutiques across the street. You have 45 minutes of shopping. (not even enough time if you're a shopaholic! ;)).

On your way back to Philipsburg, you will see the monument that serves as a boundary separating the French and the Dutch sides of the island, then you will then have a 10-minute photo opportunity at the scenic International Look Out Point.

At the end of the tour, you'll have the option to stay a while at Philipsburg for more exploring and shopping, or return back to your ship right directly.

Just a note: - shops at Marigot are mostly closed during Sundays and holidays, so you might want to consider some other days for shopping other than those days.

FACT: St. Maarten/St. Martin is the world's smallest landmass governed by 2 nations - Netherlands & France!

My St. Thomas Island Tour Experience

St. Thomas is a tropical paradise surrounded by fascinating landmarks, breathtaking seascapes, vistas and panoramic views. Best of all, you get to enjoy duty-free shopping! ;).

Planning a St. Thomas Island Tour can have different itineraries depending whether you're currently on a cruise or staying at the island for a vacation.

I will be sharing my experience as a cruiser via Royal Caribbean. :)

Boarding on an open-air vehicle, it took us up through the hills going to Beacon point. It has breathtaking scenic views of the neighboring islands straight from the viewing deck. There's also a gift shop for island souvenirs or a place for buying snacks as well.

Then, the tour continued further to the Skyline Drive Overlook that offers yet another scenic views of the harbor and islands. You can even see the world's most famous view of cruise ships, yachts, sea planes, etc. This is one of the best spot to get those panoramic style shots, so take a lot of photos!

Then, you'll visit the historical landmark of Sir Francis Drake seat, still with the same pretty panoramic views. Be sure to snap a photo of "Drake's Seat" as well. (Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get one, since the scenic views were so overwhelming that I got tons of them! lol.)
The Drake Seat was where Francis Drake used to sit as his look out point to keep watch over his fleet and his enemy ships. 

Further up the mountain is the world's famous Mountain Top, where the original famous banana daiquiris are being made. Here, you can enjoy more of the scenic views, including the Magen's Bay, with many other pristine beaches. 
The awesome view of the British V.I. and the Atlantic Ocean can also be clearly seen from this point, including St. John. This viewing scene is on the north east side of the island.

The ending part of the tour will be the option of dropping by at downtown Charlotte Amalie for more shopping at Main Street, - where the main shopping district is. This shopping area has more than 400 store outlets where you can shop at your own leisure.
