Quotation of the Day

Just do it or Not?

>> Wednesday, January 30, 2008

They say that the only thing that does not change in this world is the word "change" itself. I am contemplating on a change. I am not just sure if I should go ahead or not. It is always difficult to make decisions like this. Oftentimes, we get so comfortable in the things we do, the things we see, the people we deal with. It is just so hard to face challenges that come our way whether it be for something that might better ourselves or our lives.

Is it fear of the unknown? Fear of loss of what we are so used to? I am not sure. Somehow, I know I have to make a decision soon.

I have just finished one module of CPIM certification. It has a total of 5 modules. It was an acceleratoed course as compared to a 10-week program offered in colleges. The company I work for is sponsoring this course and is done in-house . It goes on for 5 months. On each month, 1 week is alloted to attend a 26 hr course and then take an exam to be able to move on to the next module. I am using half of my time and half company time. It is good I guess because if I were to take this on my own, I have to use all of my own time and invest my money upfront before the company reimburses me.

I am a little bit rusty in this studying concept so have to sharpen up my skills so I can remember all these terms and be able to pass the exam. I have been trying to study this week and do some review. i wish to take the exam before the next module commences in February. Wish me luck.

A snow storm hit us New Year's day and brought joy to my little one as she enjoyed tobogganing down the hill. I did try once and it was exhilarating and fun. The snow has since disappeared. We had a week of mild weather and it melted everything down. Not to worry, there’s a lot more of snow in store by mother nature that will surely bring a smirk to the driving population but lots of smiles, laughter and shrieks from kids who want to have fun with it. Hear my princess' glee as she goes down the hill below.

Movies I've seen in the past month T13 ed #9

>> Thursday, January 10, 2008

lovely graphic from Harlekwin

I have been borrowing DVDs from the library over the last month and here's what I've checked out and viewed so far.
1. Pride and Prejudice - I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book and so I decided that I wanted to see it on screen as well. I was not disappointed. The ensemble of actors were all good. I woould recommend to anyone.

2. The Notebook - I have seen this movie before. And I remember liking it. I listened to the audio book and fell in love with the characters, I needed to see the movie all over again. What a great love story. Very good movie.

3. Match Point - kind of a quirky story. Story of love gone wrong all beacuse of the evil of money.

4. Prime - Funny and adorable. Not quite the ending I'd like it to be but hey, Merryl Streep as always gives a glorious performance.

5. Crash - i love the way stories of lives are connected. It is so true. We touch everyone's life without even knowing it. This movie is very good. I liked it a lot.

6. Shop Girl - Shop Girl was quite good too, a different Steve Martin movie. I'm sure the book is much better. They tend to do more justice to the characters than movies.

7. Spanglish - Spanglish was really good. I did not expect such for an Adam Sandler movie but it was really good. The ending was not as I wanted it to be but it was good just the same.

8. Mrs Henderson Presents - I discovered Mrs Henderson Presents from the previews on one of the DVDs I was watching and I surely had to watch it. The trailer was very interesting. It was a good movie. Judi Dench was a delight as always.

9. Under The Tuscan Sun - spoke about this here.

10. Two For the Money - I could watch this movie forever just looking and goggling over Matthew McConaughey's 6 pack. But yah, acting was very good too with Al Pacino in the cast, its contagious I guess.

11. Annie - Ofcouorse I had to check this DVD out not only for my daughter but for myself as well. Annie is quite a character. Would love to see this on stage someday soon.

12. Heidi - What a touching tale. Shirley Temple was delightful. Very cute.

13. Little Miss Broadway - another Shirley Temple movie. Got my kid hooked on oldies movies now.

Let's heat up

>> Sunday, January 6, 2008

The cold weather is upon us and sometimes the heater we have just ain't enough. I have always wanted a heater in my bedroom. Its just nice to cozy up and get comfy in the night while reading my favorite book all tucked up in my warm bed.

This electric fireplace is certainly the right product for me. It is attractive and I am sure, it will give me the warmth I need.

There is just a place I can find what I need and that is at

They offer products for indoor as well as outdoor heating. They offer fireplaces as well. Wow, I just saw I this cherry arched cabinet mantel I would love to have. Hmnn, maybe it's time to update my gas fireplace look?

And what about outdoor heating?
Desatech offers top of the line heating products for both indoors and outdoors. Their forced air heaters are perfect for outdoors if you are looking to heat an area up to 2400 sq.ft. Other models like torpedo heaters and shop heaters are also ideal for outdoor heating which not only feature clean burning and quiet operation but are also very reliable and safe to operate. Same is true with kerosene shop heaters

Learn to play piano

>> Friday, January 4, 2008

I've always wanted to play the piano. However I have never had any piano lessons in my life. Everytime I see a piano, I try to touch it and hope that I will somehow learn to play a tune one day. I somehow try to key in some notes hoping to get a music going. publishes a free Piano lessons & piano chords via email newsletter. It is sent out every 5 days or so and lasts for 101 issues. There is no cost for the email newsletter.

Full-blown piano courses on DVD for adults are for sale which are mentioned in the newsletters. There is never any obligation to purchase them. However, this is a good opportunity to start learning on your own and maybe play the music you've wanting to.
