My precious

I do not own luxury jewelry but I do own lots of fashion ones. I obsessed with them once that I do not have enough storage box for them. I am now looking for good leather jewelry cases that will help me keep and preserve my valued pieces. I do not mind spending a dime on a very good storage just as long as it can keep my jewelry in its tip top shape. Add to Technorati Favorites

The rides

I have once tried long boarding and I must say that I had a good time. It feels good to see that more and more people are getting into these hobby or sport. They really invest on good long board and accessories that will make their long boarding experience more and safe. They get themselves hjc helmets, gloves knee and elbow pads. It is such a great ride when you are all geared up. Add to Technorati Favorites

Throwing punches

I became bored going to the gym. My routine would be 25 minutes on the treadmill, some 30 minutes in the Gold Express where I tone my muscles, 30 minutes on the floor for some core exercises and additional 1 hour if there is a class core or definition class. My co-staff in the hospital invited me to with him at FIST for boxing. It aroused my interest so I went with him. The trainer whom they call Coach is the brother of boxing champ Luisito Espinosa. After the stretching, he oriented with the routine in boxing. Right straight. Left straight, jab, right hook, upper cut. After a few misses I got the hang of the routine. Three rounds have passed and they were amazed that I am not shedding a drop of sweat nor I gasp for air. My hand just felt sore though. I enjoyed the routine that I signed up for membership. I want to have toned arms and flash my guns . Add to Technorati Favorites

And we lost, so what?

Honestly I was more concerned about being on not being on the bottom than winning the research contest. I was obliged to be the presenter to the Research Proposal event as the original one has throat problems. After a series of convincing to stand behind the rostrum I finally caved in. Our group was the first to present and thankfully my nervousness started to subside as I began to speak. I was trying to establish an eye contact but the spotlight that glares infront of me was blinding. I just pretended I was looking at the audience when in fact I felt like staring at the blank wall. I am glad it is over Add to Technorati Favorites

Rocking it out

I purchased a good pair of green leather shoes. What I loved about the shoes are the metal dots embellished around them. When I wear them I get the feel of being a rocker chick but the thing is the elastic in the back part seemed to be in bad shape. The right shoe comes off my feet just when I start to walk. I really wanted to rock the shoes and I am all desperate to know how to repair leather shoes. Could somebody tell me? Add to Technorati Favorites

The downside of a downer

In the hospital, it is common for me to see anti-depressant medications. It is used to make them sleep and not to treat underlying psychological problems. It is understandable that patients tend to get elusive sleep when in the hospital and they get a little sleeping aid from downers. I learned though that aside from being addictive, there are also some real downsides to anti-depressants. Zoloft,for example which is an anti-depressant medication with the generic name of Sertraline. It was the most prescribed anti-depressant in the United States in 2007, with more than 29 million prescriptions. Studies show that this drug may cause birth defects and it lead to an infamous Zoloft lawsuit The use of it can result in serious birth defects. Women who took Zoloft during their pregnancy may have children with congenital heart defects. According to the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, fetuses exposed to Zoloft during early pregnancy are more than twice as likely to be at risk for heart defects.

A help coming handy

Practicing my profession as a registered nurse gives me the opportunity to interact with the doctors and patients. It is unavoidable when patients and their relatives would come to you and ask for your opinion on getting the best attending physician. I simply get them acquainted with the list of doctors like Martin Schwartzberg MD who uses and whose credentials are available on Doximity. The application is available for free on Web, iPhone and Android, It enables doctors to connect with each other and communicate vital information within an exclusive, private network. Searching for competent and affordable doctors has never been this so easy. If a fellow doctor, for example is looking for a doctor who has experience treating an abdominal aortic aneurysm who lives in California and speaks Spanish, a physician who is a member of Doximity can type those three key words into Doximity’s search bar to find the right match for their patient.

Face to face

At the this point in time, distance is no longer an object when it comes to communication. Texting and voice calling come so cheap and everyone else uses it as primary medium to get in touch. Another breakthrough in keeping the line of communication open among people who live distantly is the use of video conferencing. Here you are not just hearing the other person’s voice you can actually see them. They are basically internet based and the speed and clarity of communication depend on the speed of your internet connection. Add to Technorati Favorites

Loving the higlands

It was in February when we last hit the road to Tagaytay and it is just appropriate to enjoy the summer breeze on the hills after soaking in the salty water of Batangas. I have been wanting to revisit LMZ restaurant near Tagaytay Crossing where I had the tastiest Kare-kare in 2010. The sauce itself can stand on its own. You could actually taste the thick peanut butter in it and could really get you through what you can call, a complete meal! We agreed to stop by LMZ restaurant on our way home and have our dinner there. Kare-kare being our highly recommended dish was the first on the order list. After a few minutes of waiting, it arrived and I immediately dug in. They still have it! The same old fashioned preparation of ox tail smothered with thick peanut butter sauce and locally produced fresh vegetables. I did not dare take my share of other dishes. I felt heavenly stuffing my mouth with the most delicious kare-kare . I instantly forgot about my diet. I had 2 and a half servings of rice and a can of coke and that was it for me. I swear, I will be back for more. Add to Technorati Favorites
