I'm no stranger to pain, particularly migraines. I do get my fair share of them once in a while particularly when I'm stressed out or if its too hot. Thankfully, my migraine is easily treated with cold ice packs, a few hours rest in a dark room and if really painful, a low dose pain reliever.

I'm quite amazed by the number of pain relievers available in the market. One of those I read about is the Tramadol, a CNS depressant and analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is also said to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety but as of this time research is still ongoing if this drug could really treat depressions.

A website where you can get information about Tramadol - http://www.tramadolbluebook.com/. This site has comprehensive information about the medicine, and you can also compare prices and buy tramadol now.

Buying medicine online can be tricky, so better go to the best licensed online pharmacies. If you're looking for tramadol no prescription, the website I've mentioned above has listings of licensed online pharmacies for your to choose from.







Recycling, A great way to Get Organized

Just imagine all the things you don't throw away. It simply piles up in all corners of your house until it could just be overwhelming. Getting a home organized can be a tough job especially if the clutter is simply enormous.

How much trash do we produce and keep tucked away? Think of those juice bottles, soda cans, wrappers etc. If we throw all this, it'll get buried in landfills or worse it could just be litter everywhere.

A big lot of this trash can be recycled or turned into something we could still reuse. Most materials can be recycled, we just need to be more creative. We definitely need to recycle to conserve our resources. If we save our soda cans and the manufacturers make new soda cans out of old ones, then less materials for new soda cans will be needed.

Recycling also saves energy. Making new stuff out of old ones consumes a lot less energy than making it brand new. In the soda can example, to make the aluminum material, you need to mine metal from the ground, remove its impurities, then refine it into a finished metal.

Recycling also produces less garbage, the more we recycle the lesser landfills and garbage resources we need.

Recycling Paper. This one most home have a lot of. We have piles of newspapers, magazines, boxes. Your old paper piles can be shredded and can be processed into new paper. Imagine how many trees will be saved if we recycle all our trash paper. Each ton of recycled paper saves about 17 trees! And it would also mean a lot less clutter on your desks and your home office organized.

Glass recycling. This can be recycled too, although it would take more effort to do so. Glass is melted and made into new glass. Some junk shops or recycling shops buy glass for recycling or you can recycle your glass trash yourself. Get creative, make it into useful vases, or into useful jars to organize your small items.

Recycling plastic. Some types of plastic can be recycled. Check your junk shops or recycling centers. Some buy recycleable plastics so you can earn from your trash.

Metal recycling. This are highly recycleable and if you have a lot of them you can make some money out of these metal scraps. Metals are costly to make so there are recycled more than other materials. These are collected by recycling shops and sent to recycling plants where the steel is melted and treated with chemicals to purify it. Then it is formed into useable sheets or bars.

Empty beverage cans are usually made of aluminum. They are sent to factories where they are cleaned, melted and rolled into new sheets of aluminum and can be made into cans again.

Recycling should be practiced by all. With all the positive incentives it brings, it shouldn't be too hard to do it. Get your clutter organized, things you don't need segregated. You can even earn some money out of your trash. Recycle it yourself or give it to junk shops so your house would be clutter-free and you get to help mother Earth as well.

For fellow Wii Fanatics here's an article by Paul Abbey. Read on for some tips on our fave Wii games. I'm sure just like me you're always on the lookout for downloadable snippets for our Wii.

The number of people wishing to know if they can download free Wii games is vast as the new Wii console has become increasingly popular over recent time. There are a wide variety of sites that offer Wii game downloads and the possibilities of obtaining the games, when conducting a simple search online. Whether these particular sites are in fact reliable as well as being virus free and providing games that are of quality is difficult to verify.

Older games will be offered on good Wii sites as well as new releases. Classic Nintendo games are supported by the Wii so you have the ability to download your old favorites, as well as demanded new games.

If you wish to download free Wii games, do a search for a site offering a good variety of different games. Sites should never receive your personal information or money if you do not trust them or if something doesn't quite feel right. Well designed sites that will not sell your personal information or overload your computer with malware are the ones you should stick with.

Wii game downloads are often offered by websites in two different types of deal. Rather than being charged for every download that you make, you could pay a one-time flat rate which will give you access to an unlimited number of downloads. Depending on how many games you require, should depend on which kind of website you select. The offer of unlimited downloads would be the best choice for you if you wish to download extensive Wii games.

It may be a better choice to only pay for one download if you just require one special Wii game that you cannot locate anywhere else as this will be cheaper.

Before downloading free Wii games, you may be required to download special software. You may either be connected to the main server of that site, or connected to other users of the site, which will enable you to download the Wii games that you require. Don't forget you will also need to locate an emulator that operates in exactly the same way that the Nintendo console would and remember to play downloaded games on your computer.

A website that you can download free Wii games from is simple to locate but selecting one from which you wish to download the games can be a little more difficult. All available sites should be checked cautiously prior to selecting one for downloading. Register with the website of your choice and within only a few minutes you could be downloading your favorite Wii games.

Don't get intimidated with the fancy techno lingo of the net, or if you are not an expert writer. You don't need to be an expert in both.

In fact, once you get started, you can learn more and more and get to practice. So start you blog now. Get a free blogger account, or if you wanna have your own domain, visit this site for the best web hosting choice .


How to Organize Your Closet With Space Saving Hangers

Here's an article I found written by Marnie Williams. I like these tips and I'm sure most homemakers who are finding it hard to organize their closets would find the tips most helpful.

If you want to be able to find and have storage space for all of your items in your closet, you can start tearing out the walls, or you can start using space saving hangers such as the ones in Huggable Hanger Sets. Huggable Hangers are much more space efficient than traditional "fat" hangers. In fact, using the sleek, slimmed down style of space saving hangers from Joy Mangano, you can reclaim as much as 30% of your closet storage space back.

Using slim hangers is only the beginning. Huggable Hanger Sets include other specialty space saving hanger styles such as cascading hangers and over the door hooks.

There are tiered hanger styles that allow multiple pairs of slacks to he hung vertically on in one traditional hanger space.

There are also tiered hangers for women's skirts that can hold up to 5 garments at once, again in the space of one traditional hanger. These types of hangers utilizes vertical space all the way to your closet floor, so be sure to hang the longest dress or skirts first, so that they do not drag the ground.

Tiered hangers are also a super way to organize the children's closets. It is now very simple and convenient to separate complete outfits into single hanger sets (whether for yourself or your kids. This and other simple time saving techniques will not only make your family's closet space more organized, it will also save you substantial time and hassle every day getting the children out the door during the morning rush.

Joy Managno also provides specialty tiered hangers that will eliminate the frustration of finding your favorite tie creased and mangled at the bottom of a dresser drawer, or the inability to find "that one" special belt before a night on the town. Now your ties will be right where you left them, in one spot, well organized, and easily accessible from you Huggable Hanger tie and belt tiered hanger hook.

Cascading hooks are a novel device used to double up on shirts, as tiered hangers allow multiple slacks to hang together. Cascading hooks allow you to color coordinate or otherwise categorize your clothing into hanging "sets". Group your long sleeved shirts and your short sleeved, your colors, or your whites. The choices are endless and solely based on what you want.

Because of this organizational simplicity, Cascading hooks very popular and useful to display clothing in shops and boutiques, where sorting by size or seasonal color is now as simple as a changing a single hanger set.

When considering the use of cascading hanger hooks, be aware that you need to use sturdy hooks and hangers, like the ones available in the Joy Mangano Huggable Hanger Sets collection or the weight of the clothing and hangers may not allow them to hold up. It is always best when trying to save space by using cascading hanger hooks, that you use slimmed hangers, and not traditional, fat, bulky ones. This can cause damage to your cascading hanger hooks due to the unneeded, extra weight.

Trademark and Copyright Help

I've been doing some research about trademarking and copyrighting online. You seed I have a hobby creating some cartoons and I have plans to make these available online. I am quite concerned though about copyright protection.

The amount of information on the net about copyright and trademarks is admittedly enormous but just sorting through it and filtering what makes sense and what is just pure rubbish is a task that makes my head ache.

A good friend, who's also an artist herself recommended consulting a Trademark Lawyer  instead. Most of their services involves trademark searching, preparation of applications, and preparation of contracts. 

Of course getting a trademark as well as a copyright requires some payment however the benefits on getting one far outweighs the cost. Copyright is a form of intellectual property which gives the creator of an original work exclusive rights for a certain time period in relation to that work, including its publication, distribution and adaptation; after which time the work is said to enter the public domain. Copyright applies to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete. Some jurisdictions also recognize "moral rights" of the creator of a work, such as the right to be credited for the work. Even us bloggers, should be very conscious about copyrights. I would personally take it negatively if my content or my work was stolen. Credit should be given properly. If writing blog articles are hard, well I'd rather search through reprintable article directories than "steal"another's content.

If I go ahead and publish my graphic design and illustration work, I'm seriously considering the copyright issues that go with it that's why I wonder though how much would those services cost? At any rate, legal fees are just fine as long as you are able to secure the copyrights of your work.

Thank God! There is a descent pizza place here in Phnom Penh. Like most Pinoys, I love Italian food. My daughter too loves it though she's more into pasta. Since we came last October, I haven't had my fill of good Italian food and yesterday I was really craving for some pizza.

We headed over to Pizza World - Monivong Branch to have our fill of pizza and pasta. We stuffed ourselves with a large Four Seasons Pizza (we can't make up our minds so we got the one with 4 flavors so we could have a bit of everything), garlic bread, and spaghetti bolognaise. Yummy!




I'm finding it really nice to be here in Phnom Penh, the Khmer cuisine is just wonderful but if you crave some other kinds of food, you can have your pick of different cuisines. There are even several Filipino restaurants here, so you won't really miss much of any cuisine. :)

Keep in mind that to lose weight successfully one should be eating fewer calories and using more energy.

There are a lot of fad diets and they usually work at first but eventually since the eating and exercising habits remain unchanged all the weight lost would be gained back. Focusing on making real changes on eating and exercising habits will really be the trick in losing weight and keeping it from coming back.

I've been through a lot of fad diets, even tried some diet pills but I just couldn't maintain my weight. For a few months now though, I've started to change my eating as well as exercise habits. The weight loss is not fast or drastic but its steady and I'm liking the way I feel now.

Some helpful tips I could share for those trying to lose weight like myself:

1. Have plenty of water. Drink at least 8-12 glasses of water per day as your body needs it. Drinking water can also help you from binging since it will make you feel full. It will also keep you hydrated most especially if you are doing a lot of exercise and sweating it out.

2. Take time with your meals. If you are always in a hurry, your tendency is to gobble up whatever you can reach and run. Take note that it takes the brain about 20 minutes to feel full from the time you start eating. If you eat so fast, this would make you feel still hungry even if you already ate a lot. I used to do this! Eat and run and I ended up eating a lot of food with high calories. So take your time and enjoy your food.

3. Starving is not the good way. Why? There was a time I was desperate to lose weight, I just ate crackers and cereal drink for breakfast and lunch and I did not have dinner, I lost some weight but I ended up feeling so lethargic, not much energy to do anything and I felt sick. If you don't eat enough your metabolism will slow down and will be on the defensive mode. You will burn off fewer calories than when you eat sufficient amount of food.

4. Have regular exercise. Exercise is great not just for losing weight but in keeping us healthy. If you have regular exercise, you are in better shape and so is your metabolism so the body will burn off more calories. Start out at slow-moderate pace like 20-30 minutes at least four times a week. Walking, dancing, aerobic exercises, bicycling, swimming or exercise classes are good start. Choose an exercise activity that you find enjoyable so you can stick with it. I'm doing hip hop dancing 30 minutes, five time a week and bicycling at least twice a week. I actually feel weird whenever I miss out on the exercise. Once it becomes a habit, the benefits to your body and how you feel will be enourmous.

I hope I could hit my target weight loss by end of this year. I'm not in hurry, I just want to do it right and the healthy way. Good luck to all!

Here I go again! Blabbing about contemporary furniture again..For a good reason. Though antiques and ornate furnishings I also consider as works of art, but I like modern, sleek lines of contemporary furniture better. It's uncluttered, streamlined, gives a sense of organization, great for small spaces - which are really getting scarce these days, and its just easy to mix and match with other furnishings and its very practical.

I also like black furniture mainly because it looks so modern and stylish and with great lighting in a room who can go wrong? I like it too coz I prefer neutral colors on my walls so the black furnishing will serve as a contrast.

I've been digging out websites and design sites with black furniture this morning and I came across this site Go Modern and I was just so wowed! They have an awesome collection and I was particularly hooked on their glass furniture collection.. Awesome... I feel like I suddenly want to tear down our closets and replace it with this one!!


Would you believe that is a wardrobe cabinet? It just lends a room a wider look plus the light it reflects is nice plus it just doesn't look like its a wardrobe!
