The search is on

Speaking of online backup, I started to do my homework and landed on something called the top cloud storage. First of all, what on earth is cloud storage? Cloud Storage is the safest way to store important files and folders that rids of unfortunate accidents that is anyone’s nightmare. It eliminates the threat of Acts of god, theft and hard drive failure from destroying all your precious memories. In a nutshell, it gives us the opportunity to entrust our most valued files sans the worries of losing them in a heartbeat.
Checking their website, I was able to browse the top ranking cloud storage services based on consumer reviews. They made the ranking based on the credibility and reputation of the people who work for the concerned companies. The listing and ranking are based on the rating according to the price, server security, reliability, ease of use and customer support.
This site makes it easier for me or for anyone to choose what service would fit my needs. I do not have to hop from one site to another given that each service provider has been carefully evaluated by no less than those who actually tried and tested them. This thing that is getting

The best back up

I started writing on my online journal almost four years ago. It has helped be hone my writing skills and at the same time allowed me to channel my feelings and take about things that are happening around me. In those four years, I have written so many things and posted so many pictures and I am curious if I have to do something to protect my files such as having best online backup. I do not have interest in purchasing expensive external memories and I also lack the space in my room to safe keep it. Having the best online backup is like having a virtual wallet that you could put in and take out cash. It is much safer if you have your valued stuff placed in a safe place in which you have an access 24/7.
There is quite a number of service providers that offer online backup and the question is how reliable is their service? It is our time then to do our homework and ask around who has got the best to offer. A few trial and errors would be acceptable but hitting the right note at first would be good. I really need to do a great decision making especially if it involves a huge chunk of money. I should get a good deal.

The wedding gift

Apart from the ensemble, we are also in the look for the best wedding gift. We agreed to chip in so we could grab something useful for the couple. We have thought of buying corner pergolas but then again the statement in their invite says that they prefer to receive cash as they will be leaving for abroad next year. Anyhow, we are fine handing them down our cash gift.

So into vintage

We decided to be in full battle gear for our colleague’s wedding. Since we gave in to their request to be in vintage attire we might as well give it our all. From dress, shoes, head dress, to gloves and accessories, we should be in complete ensemble.
Our boys agreed to wear bow tie, vests or suspenders and hats. We also have talked them into sporting cheap cigars to complete the package. We are all so excited.

The Topamax lawsuit

Day after day, there are some issues coming out concerning health-related medications. One of them is the Topamax lawsuit.
Topamax is used to treat epileptic seizures among children and adults. It is also prescribed to prevent onset of migraine headaches. Studies show that use of Topamax can acutally result in cleft lip or cleft palate when used during pregnancy.

Attorneys at O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, understand that your child’s injuries may not be your fault – instead, possibly a dangerous side effect of Topamax.

Living your dreams

I have so many dreams in my life. Some are achievable and some are really meant to be just dreams.
I always admire those people who are not afraid to take risks just to make their dreams come true. Most of the people I know have succeeded and I am truly happy for them. At this moment of my life, I have handful of dreams that I think, if given with the right opportunity, I could make them come true. I do not want to live a life full of regrets and what ifs. I know that I am not getting any younger and one day, I am afraid that it would be too late for me to try on new things in life.
Right now, I would like to travel. I have a bucket list of place I want to land in and as of the moment, I am turning the pages of my list. I am trying to go to the place and try things that my time and budget would allow me to. Although I am not ready to jump into the opportunity that gets my way, I know that I will to my dreams one way or another.

The double edged-razor

Working at a cardiac center, it is not uncommon for me to encounter patients who have been suffering from diabetes or who have just been diagnosed to have one. Whether acquired via modifiable or non-modifiable lifestyle, each patient has to act on controlling the disease before it controls him or her.
There are those who have been popping pills called the oral hypogylcemic agent (OHA) or injecting insulin to control their sugar levels.
I remember a consultant in our institution saying in a matter-of-fact manner that medicine and medications are like double-edged razor, it will either cure a person or kill a person that is why he stresses out to the new breed of doctors to thoroughly assess their patients and correlate them with the medications that they will prescribe to them . Understanding the medicine’s indication, contraindication, side effects and adverse side effects.
I have learned that there are diabetes patients who took Actos maybe at an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. There is actually a firm that is is actively accepting Actos bladder cancer cases in the USA. So if you are or if you know someone who is a NON-SMOKER who has contracted bladder cancer after taking Actos, as them to contact Watts Guerra Craft LLP today. There are actos cancer attorneys that will review their cases and help them fight for their rights.

All vintage

Oh well, the search is not over yet for the best outfit for our colleague’s wedding. The preparation gets hyped up as big day draws near. We want the day to be extra special for the couple that is why we are really prepping to be in our best selves then.
I have particular peg in mind. I do not want to be all glammed up. I just want to be dainty. I want to fit in the occasion yet I want to enjoy the day and just be merry. My other colleagues is on duty tonight and they plan to go on bargain hunting again after their shift. Since I just woke up as I came from the night duty, I am planning to be up all night searching online for fab finds.

And they found love

I have been a Glee fan ever since its pilot episode and I should say that and has not failed to deliver.
Their first episode for the year has really gotten me shaken to the core as it covered the much awaited Will’s proposal to Emma. I thought that the writer has given the episode a justice. I actually had the LSS (Last Song Syndrome) of Rihanna’s We found love. The scene was mesmerizing and everyone flashed happy faces.

The perfect wedding gift

I and my co-workers are discussing what we should give our co-staff nurse as a gift for his wedding day. We have agreed on a certain budget but since they do not have wedding registry and we are too shy to ask what they would want for their big day, we are seriously having headaches thinking of a very useful gift that they would cherish. Gifts under $100 are the ones that we are considering. We hope that we could chose one before the big day.

The reality

I have known Crestor even before I started to practice my profession as a cardiac nurse. I have popped the pill for over a year in an attempt to lower my cholesterol level. I had leg and total body cramps that really crippled me for a few moments. I remember dropping my toothbrush as my hand got stiff while doing my oral care. I thought that I was losing potassium in body as I was being diuresed also. I told my doctor about it and he immediately asked me to stop taking in Crestor.
I learned that Crestor can result in some serious injuries like heart attacks and heart failure. There were noted serious side effects that include cardiomyopathy (deterioration of the myocardium), rhabdomyolysis (breakdown of muscle fibers), and ventricular dysfunction. I was really horrified to learn about these stuff including the Crestor lawsuit that many people have filed.

Red lipstick and a bow tie

My colleague’s wedding is on February 4th. We are really excited because it will also be a reunion for our ward as some were already channelled out to special areas. We are also excited prepping for the wedding as they have the theme of 50s vintage. They request their gusts to be in their best 50s inspired get up.
We went to Bambang Market in Manila which is considered as the mecca of bargain hunting for used clothing more know as the ukay-ukay. I played as the stylist to my colleagues and I was able to get them the clothes for the said occasion. I am particularly inspired by the theme that I enjoyed the shopping experience. I will be posting some pictures of the stuff we scored soon.

A taste of Thai

We have met with our vacationing friend from Australia. On my way to our meeting place in Megamall, he texted me to think where we would get our tummies filled. Since he is already there, I asked him to look for Thai resto.
Being a lazy guy, he just waited for me and we began our resto hunting spree. It did not take us long to find a Thai resto. At first, my friend was hesitant to come in as he regarded the rather small place as a fastfood and he was looking for a gourmet-like stuff. I talked him into looking at the menu and after a few minutes of thinking through, we finally decided to sit in.

The place is called Jatujak. I first ordered the Thai milk tea, my number one on the list! The glass was tall and it was heavenly. We ordered for a large bowl of seafood Tom yum which was served in a pot on a little fire. It was spicy in a good way. Sipping even a teaspoon could surely cure any naso-pharyngeal problems. All the clogs in your airway would surely be melted away. The large pot was enough for voracious appetite of four. The pomelo shrimp salad was also a hit. IT was my first time actually to try it and I was pleased.
Although there were foods that we actually enjoy, the bagoong rice did not blow me away. Also, the green curry was too spicy for me.

Overall, we went out with smile on our face. The dining experience was good and the tab did not drain our pockets. I will be surely going back there for the Tom Yum and Thai milk tea.
