Hate Acne and pimples?

Hate acne and pimples? When your face is oily and expose to the harsh elements like dirt and pollution, you must keep your face clean, a simple washing with facial wash and water will do the trick. And if you want to keep it looking healthy here are some healthy food you must have in your diet. Lots of liquid especially water, fruit juice, low fat dairy products and wheat products like bread and cereals. And if the skin infection is serious, go to a dermatologist and ask for an acne medicine you can use.

My blog will plant a Tree

The organizer of "Make It Green" has sent me an email, they will plant a tree for each of my two sites as an appreciation for my participation in making "My Blog is Carbon Neutral". Please do your share, make a simple post about their Program and ask other bloggers to participate too.

Kinilaw is to the FIlipinos as Sashimi is to the Japanese. Fish is cooked in its own marinade, being vinegar the main ingredient and not through heat or fire.

1 green bell pepper or hot chili pepper whichever you prefer(finely chopped)

1 tsp. ginger root chopped

1 med size onion sliced

Serves 4-6

Clean fish and slice into thin strips.
Soak in vinegar and salt.

Change soaking solution twice or until fish whitens and looks cooked.

Serve with black pepper, ginger, onion and bell pepper/chili pepper.

Oh my Ferrari!

It is said that cars are the toys for the big boys, I knew a guy who really dreamed of owning a car, instead of buying a house he purchased a brand new car. And would you believe on the first week, he preferred to sleep there than in his own bedroom. LOL.. No doubt if can afford a Ferrari he will get one. And I bet buying genuine Ferrari parts will be his priority, for he won't settle for less, only the best for his beloved baby.

The power of technology

So it's official, that one of the highest paying jobs anywhere in the world is in Information Technology, and most sought after indeed. Anywhere you look, almost everything we use in our daily activities are run by computers. With a touch of a finger we can communicate, deal in business to anyone from different parts of the world or shop online. Ah the power of technology. No wonder the so-called Generation X is aspiring to have Jobs in IT.
