January was a Great Month!

It is time to slowly goodbye to January. CET or Central Europe Time, some more hours and it is over. February is about to come and I am optimistic for its coming, hoping it will be another great month like January.

So far, I am grateful that January is indeed a great month. Why I say  great? Hmmm.. I am finally going home this year. I booked my  plane ticket during the first  week of  January. Thanks to my siblings who will be sponsoring for my travel this time. isn't it a blessing? I am also glad to have more contacts to my family and friends worldwide.

Justin Bieber Caught on Illegal Car Racing

I don't exactly know if it was an illegal car racing. While cooking in our kitchen that afternoon (CET or Central European Time, I heard a flash news over the radio that this famous teen singer, oh well he is not a teenager  anymore, was caught car racing at around 4:00 AM in Miami last Thursday, January 23, 2014.

More on that, police claimed that Justin admitted to drinking, using marijuana, and taking prescription pills after his arrest Thursday in Florida.

Inspiring Thoughts for New Year

Enjoying life? Father God, let us not forget though to help especially those that are in need. Help others to succeed as we strive to do our best.

Medicine Box

Good evening everyone! Let me share you this before I sign-off for tonight. I am quite tired now after doing some organizing and cleaning today. Hopefully I will be done soon. Back to main topic..Where is our medication cart? I would mean a medicine box for this. Hubby was trying to find a band aid this evening. He got some cuts on his finger from work. I told him that there is one pack of it in our medicine box. Sometimes he just don't see things inside the house. There are also some medicines inside it from pain relievers like paracetamol and ibuprofen to nose sprays, migraine tablets, burn creams, bandages and some other more. It is better to have some in the house especially during emergency.

I wish you all a wonderful week. For sure, it will be a busy week for me. Goodnight folks!

Pope Benedict XVI resigns

 I was taking my lunch when I heard a news about  Pope Benedict XVI  who will soon be resigning in his office. I was surprised upon  hearing it but was enlighten  after hearing that it is  due to his health situation. That is quite sad but considering his age, I believed it is reasonable  for him to do that. Good luck  Pope Benedict XVI  and wish  good  health and more years in your life. Keep spreading  the good news!

Here is the pontiff's statement in full...

 "Dear Brothers, I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonisations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. 

However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is. 

Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer." (posted by my friend Tess in his facebook wall.)

I Love Music and Entertainment

Do you love to hear  songs or do you love singing? Are you interested about  music? How do you entertain yourself? With our modern world now, you can have as many forms of music and entertainment that you always wanted. If you have a laptop or computer, you can go online and simply browse for a music and entertainment website. Watching music videos in the world's most famous video platform called Youtube is also free and you can truly watch a variety of videos according to your choice.

Las Vegas, Nevada, The Entertainment Capital of The World. I was there!
I love listening to the music and singing as well. I have sisters that can also sing good. I also have a cousin who used to perform in Ballys and other hotels in Las Vegas. I really admired her voice.

Uses of Candles

 We were  taught in school  that before the invention of electric lighting, candles and  oil lamps are  commonly used as illuminations.  Nowadays,  there are still areas in some corners of this world without electricity  and Candles are routinely used.

For  some reasons, I love candles and you can find it everywhere inside our home.  Below are only  some of the reasons why I always keep candles inside our premises.

I always light  Scented Candles everytime I cook. Most of the times, when we cook there are really smells or odors that are coming out depending on what we are cooking. I use scented candles in order to eliminate the smell of the food  I cook.

I love the smell of scented candles. I am using the aesthetic value and scent of candles  to make a soft, warm and romantic ambiance inside  our home. I always love it! Do you?

Candles as Decorations- I love  to decorate  and in fact I also use candles as decorations. I  have a lot  of candle holders and I usually put colourful and scented candles on it.  I have Christmas candles, spring and autumn candles as well.  Candle holders  from crystals to porcelains, ceramics  to glasses are also found in our home.

Candles as religious  or ritual purposes.  Many  are using candles as  religious  or ritual purposes. When I travel and visit a  church and  I always try to lit candles  inside and offer some prayers. You  might also notice that when you go inside a church, you always see candles inside especially on the altars.

Candles as emergency lighting- I  remember back in my home country where we always have power failures.  We always have candles  ready to lit in times of  electrical power failures.  In my  nine years of living here in Europe, I only experienced  it twice in our area.

Scented candles as aromatherapy.  I believed a lot of you are using candles due to its aroma. Yes, I do the same. It always feels good when we smell or breath something good. Scented candles  truly  bring   therapy to us. It is like a balsam to our body.

Before I end up, I want to let you know that a  candle manufacturer is traditionally called as chandler.
