Boomtown's Employee Appreciation

Patry Chef Joseph of Boomtown Casino had an artistic hand in making this extra ordinary creation. These are edible arrangements made up of fruits and vegetables.
Unique arrangement and table set up made these pastries and sweets so delicious.
The table display of cakes.

Trade Show

For the past weeks, my husband and I always went to a trade show. We went to RV and boat show which I must admit, it gives me an idea which one is better than the other. Each trade show was different because of the venue that they choose, quantity of display and even the tradeshow banner stands that they used differ. One trade show has a miniature landscaping and it was very inviting and attractive for the prospective buyers. Banners and advertisement helped a lot to attract a trade show. Those that are lively and colorful banners are useful for trade show because it would get the attention of prospective buyers. The last trade show that we went to was really cozy because there were so many display not only RV and boat but other products as well. They also have activities for the kids to entertain them while their parents are busy viewing the trade show. Of course, canteen was accessible so; getting hungry will not likely to happen. I had so much fun with the display, food and the setting of the place. Since there were other products which was displayed on the booth, people had time to unwind for few minutes. I am excited to see another trade show which is coming next month.

Post It

Are you a systematic person? When I was in high school, I set my schedule from the time I woke up and ends with sleeping time. I see to it that my books and notebooks are arranged in my school bag and I have a schedule when to study each subject. I used 3M Post-it Notes and planner in my scheduling. Looking back, I like the set up that I have had when I was in high school. Having a goal for the day eventually helped me realized one objective at a time. I set up a time for studying and a time for meeting my friends. I make sure that my schedule is balance and not focused on studies but, also in co-curricular activities too. Planning is really essential to our lives. We can accomplish things in life if we set up our goal one day at a time. If we have the objective for the day, we can accomplish it if we do it. During those days, it is easy for me to finish my task by aiming what needs to be done. Planning and accomplishing should go together which is a recipe for success. I graduated with honors in my class and had the good grades which were my passport to a university.

Satellite Internet Service

I remember when my father was working in the far east, communication is really scarce. The only way to contact him was through long distance call which was very expensive at that time. If there were emergency, telegram was also popular. The access to communication technology was limited to those who live in the city. If a person lives in a remote area, he needs to travel to the city to call or send a telegram. Well, that was two decades ago because in this generation, technology is zooming beyond our expectation. Remote areas can access to a satellite internet service providers these days. If families separated with distance halfway around the globe, communication is not a problem. They can talk online using the Internet and even see each others webcam. What a comfortable life we have for having this access right? Well, Internet providers are not always accessible in some areas. But, having a satellite Internet service gives us access even if we live in rural areas. We have amazing technology at present. With just a click of a finger, we can communicate to our love one who resides abroad. Having internet access gives us the comfort of shopping online and surfing the things we need to know. I cannot ask for more. How about you?

Harbor in Ocean Springs

Today, we went to the Harbor in Ocean Springs, Mississippi to unwind and enjoy the beach. My husband brought his fishing pole and there were so many people on the beach sun bathing, playing and fishing.The beach area was too windy to fish so, we last only for 20 minutes. Other people had stopped fishing already because the wind was too chilly.
There were few boats who went towards Deer Island. On the beach side, the kidz were playing volleyball and the other teenagers had sunbathing activity.

This beach is part of the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and so; this beach extend endlessly.

Home Quick Fix

I was watching a TV show that tackles about flipping houses. I started watching it when I was in Orlando and I never missed any single episode. I was fascinated with how the first time flippers find ways in solving their unprecedented problems. I was amazed when the show gave ideas on how to use powder actuated nail gun, choosing tiles and the right color of grout and applied a stage to sell the house after flipping. There were so many ideas that I learned just by watching the show. I also have this fascination in collecting tools. In fact, when I visit a hardware store, my eyes were glued on any tools for carpentry especially those tools which are easy and handy to use.

I stored all the tips and ideas on my mind so that when it is time for me to extend my own house, I have ideas on what to do. Two years ago, I just did a little project renovation on my floors. I chose the materials and everything looks good to my project. At home, I bought some necessary tools which I often used for quick fix in the house. I learned to fix and trouble shoot because there is no man in the house. I guess women learn these things especially when there is nobody to call in an instant, right? What do you think?

We will be going back to Orlando next month to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We will be staying in this area...uhmmm...actually, it is our friend's place. When we lived in Florida, we frequent this place. We used to have our breakfast and snacking here. We also watched people boating and fishing around. Can't wait to spend few days in this place.

Posed a Pic

This was taken a year ago in Orlando while we visited our friends in the airport. My husband worked there and so, I went there frequently too. PT Cruiser is my fave car at that time and so, I just took a short posed from one of the cars in the garage. Yes, this is not mine. Anyway, next month we will visit Orlando and see our friends there once again. Can't help but get excited to it.

RV Show in Gulfport

March is a busy month for RV display here in Mississippi. On this particular day, we went to Gulfport to see the new RV's and the prices. There are only few motorhomes and mostly trailers which are truly beautiful. This is small and the price is affordable because I think this is the only display here which is used. It sold out fast because it looks like brand new.My hubby is busy looking for a long trailer this time.
This is what we need really. Easy to drive and everything is there. Kitchen, bath/bedroom and living room. The price is way beyond our means for entertainment. It is 90K dollars.
I love this trailer better but, myhubby doesn't like to pull a long trailer on a truck. He rather picked the above unit.

Buy Gold for Investment

When we are working, we set aside few percent of our income to savings. That is the best way to save money before paying the bills, right? Saving money is an investment and a good resource when the need arises. For those who have so much money in the bank, investing to buy gold is an option to consider. Others, just buy gold to complete their collections. It is an expensive hobby but, a wise and a very good option to consider. You will constantly have a high yield of your gold investment because the exchange will always go up. Are you interested to invest in gold?

Deer Island Coastal Reserve

There is a barrier island off the coast of Biloxi, Mississippi called Deer Island. It is approximately 400 acres and the closest island to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It was believed that Deer Island was inhabited by the early Choctaw tribe before European settlement. It was named Deer Island because the deer would swim to it when they were being hunted. When Europeans arrived, the Choctaw were driven out of Biloxi and Deer Island.According to my husband, there was an old hermit who live there but, died in 1959. After Hurricane Camille in 1969, the place was no longer inhabited. Upon the death of Captain Baker, the owner of the island, it was sold to many people who own parts of it. The island now serves as a tourist attraction for those searching for Native American pottery and arrowheads. It is also a popular fishing spot. You can see the island from the Hard Rock garage or by the long beach on Beach Boulevard.
One day I will visit that island and I will post it here.

We Love to Sing-along

According to the history of my family, lol... I have an uncle who is a musician. I love singing very much and my first exposure was when I joined in a church choir. I missed those moment really. I was in high school when I stopped because I have a hectic schedule at school. I love singing during masses every Sunday and when I am at home, I play my guitar. No formal classes. When I was in the University, I was a Glee Club member up to my post graduate course.
When we have family gatherings, everyone will sing-along and we take turns of the microphone. Now, we have a new generation ... ages from two to elementary, they took over the scene. They will sing before they can read, FUNNY RIGHT?
This is the youngest of my nieces. She can sing "twinkle, twinkle lil star...." ohhh, looks like she got my talent...waaaa! LOL.

Car Shipment

I just bought a van for myself and was truly proud of what I had done to my earnings. I told my family about it and they were so happy of what I had accomplished after working for just three months. While talking to my brother, I found out that he needs transportation for his new business. If only I can Ship My Car back home, I would. In my place, having a car is still considered as a status symbol. You can't afford to buy a car just a snap of a finger. Even if you work for three months and save all your money, cars are very expensive to buy. Unlike here, you can buy it so easily. If you can't purchase it for cash, there are so many financing institutions that would offer such easy payment plan. Therefore, the individual has a lot of options to consider in owning a car for personal transportation. The car is a necessity here so; it is very affordable. Anyway, if only I could find a way to buy a car here and send it to my country, it would really make a difference. That is another story, don’t you think?

Brazil Product

There are two products of Brazil that I love so far. These are: chocolates and flipflops on which I am more and more crazy about. As we all know, Havaianas flip flops are manufactured in Brazil. They are using a secret rubber formula and these colorful flip-flops are soft, light and highly durable. This product offers authentic comfort and quality for men, women and kids. Their first creation was in 1962 and since then, Havaianas sandals have been worn on beaches and used as casual wear all over the world.
The picture above is not Havaianas but, since it is made from Brazil, this flip flops define comfort.

Buffet in Harrah's Hotel in New Orleans

February 8 is a memorable day for me because we went to New Orleans to be in the crowd welcoming the NFL SAINTS team as the Champion of Superbowl LXIV. I am a big fan you know. There were 80,000 people in New Orleans that day and the parade started early evening. It was fun and since we arrived at 1PM, we had time to wander the streets of New Orleans. It was freezing cold walking on the streets and the people were wrapped up and some even have a blanket with them. Nobody cares because everyone does anyway. We stopped at Harrah's Hotel and Casino because the wind was blowing so hard and besides, we were hungry.

The food selection in the buffet were plenty even if we came in late at almost three in the afternoon. The people we met everywhere were friendly. We happen to meet a family who loves BOOMTOWN casino buffet in Mississippi too, my workplace.

These are the food choices that I had eaten. If only I can take pictures of the food display but, it is not really allowed as what I knew of. If you are in the casino area, no taking pictures and that's the rule.

We had a good time with our meals. On this day, Harrah's giving a 50% discount of the buffet and we only pay $23 plus tax. It was worth the money and the ambiance where we were seated was awesome. They open the function room for the elite because the dining buffet area was already crowded.

The corn that you see on my plate look like the "binake" LOL. The taste is nowhere near it. This is spicy. The binake is sweet and creamy and the smell is good and tempting. I saw other guests love it though.

The clams are my favorite and I ate so much.
Look at the salad, delicious huh? The food selection in the buffet was really great. We stayed in the casino for almost three hours. We played few of the slot machines and we didn't win, LOL.

Here is what I like in that function room, the art on the ceiling. The cloud painting was amazing.

Here I am, desperate to take a picture of the people around us using my smartphone.
Just showing you the elegant ambiance of this area. Beautiful isn't it? This casino/hotel is the sister company of THE GRAND CASINO in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Needing More Space

I love shopping but, I usually buy things for my family and relatives back home. Usually, I look for the quality, price and check the brand of the product first. For my own use, I buy things which are on sale. Because of that, I need more space in my closet to store all my favorite shoes and clothes that I bought. Right now, I am still trying to re-arrange and store my other things in a box. I will surely have problems when we will move back to Florida. With all the things that I have, I will be needing help from a company just like Raleigh NC self storage. Most people who do not have enough space in their home rented a self storage place. We rented one before when we moved to a smaller apartment. We can't bring all our things to the new apartment because it is fully furnished. We need the storage to store all our important things and appliances. Having this kind of company in our area is truly a blessing. It is very convenient for people like us who do not own a big house. Self storage is all we need right now.
