Philippines :)

The Philippines .
We have at least 7,000 islands, and I always say so many of them are not used, seen, developed and enjoyed.
 I joke that we only use 1 for holidays-- Boracay. 
BUT last weekend we went to fantasy Island Balesin, 20 min from take off  to landing!

A Secret.

I wanna share something i discovered a a few years back, I've never see anything like it before, 
I got curious, bought it and just now recently I tried it for a test drive. 
Its this weird looking half-moon velcro I got in Japan.
I see them quite a lot now, so get yourself one, it works!
No one will know its there, hidden! 
best part is no more teasing of the hair at the crown =)

SSSS snake!

happy chinese new year!
Lets all welcome the year of the snake !

To all 1972 ers, born year of the Rat, here is our horoscope for this year..
(via) click to find your own zodiac

The Rat is an interesting Chinese horoscope sign that's full of contradictions. Then again, aren't we all? The rat will see lots of change this year of the Snake but the Chinese 2013 horoscope for Rat shows that many of those changes can be quite positive. It's up to each individual to use their knowledge for good and to discover their true potential this 2013 year of the Snake. 

2013 horoscope - The Rat In Love 

The 2013 year of the black Snake can be a difficult year for the Rat in regards to love. Those who are already partnered are going to see their relationships do one of two things: bloom or die. There will be no in between and you should be prepared for the inevitability of lots of change. Whether it's good or bad is up to you. 

The Chinese horoscope 2013 for Rat also shows us that there is a high chance of loneliness for the Rat. This doesn't have to be a bad thing. Of course, it may come because the Rat ends a relationship or doesn't get the guy / girl he or she wants. But it could also be a good time for the Rat to focus on what's really important: themselves. If you find yourself alone again this 2013 year, just take a step back and remember that it may very well be a good thing. 

There is also the chance for great, true, and lasting love this 2013 year of the Snake. But it's all about change. If you're already partnered, then you will need to make a point to grow your relationship. If there's one thing the Chinese 2013 horoscope for Rat shows us, it's that there's no place for standing still. If you let it fester, then it will simply die. 

2013 horoscope - The Rat at Work 

Once again, change is the name of the game for the Rat in 2013. If you already have a job you love, then you might see your job duties expand even more or a new management position arise. Don't be afraid of this change. The worst thing you can do this 2013 year is to stand still and not accept the new opportunities in your life. 

If you're not working, then you can expect to see that change as well. When you first start your new job, make sure you show all your strengths immediately. You have a tendency to hold back and keep to yourself but that won't serve you well this 2013 year. You need to make sure your new employer knows just how important the job is and just how qualified you are to do it. 

This would be a great 2013 year of the black Snake for you to do some volunteer work. The Chinese 2013 horoscope for Rat shows us that 2013 is a year for rebirth and renewal. Why not show the universe that you're prepared to help out wherever you can? Find out if there are opportunities in your area for helping people learn to read, beautifying the neighborhood, or anything else. You can truly change the world with your unique skills and attributes. Don't be afraid to try.
