We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,

And picked the daisies fine

Since auld lang syne 

For auld lang syne, my dear, 
For auld lang syne,

For auld lang syne 

We too have paddled in the stream 
From morning sun to night 
But the seas between us broad have roared 
From auld lang syne 

For auld lang syne, my dear, 
For auld lang syne, 
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne 
We'll take a cup o'kindness yet 
For auld langs syne

The Abreeza Experience

Today's a historic day for Davao City and I am glad to be part of it. I am referring about the opening of Abreeza Mall. I, together with Yatz spent our day at the mall from 10AM to 9:30PM. We went there just for the sake of seeing what are inside the mall and hopefully to buy something, eat and just unwind. However, to our surprise, we witnessed different activities starting from the mass in the morning, followed by the meet & greet session with Enchong Dee and Joseph Marco. We watched Priest on their 3D theater. Then, we walked around the mall again, and to our surprise again, we saw Dawn Zulueta and we followed her, of course only to find out that she will be signing autographs. So, we fell in line (it was a short line because it was inside the department store), and good thing that only few people find out that she was there; it wasn't announced. We had a brief picture taking with her. After which, we ate at the free merienda buffet (cocktail style) at the department store lobby (solved na ang snacks). So, since we knew that Christian Bautista will be at the supermarket area at around 3-4 PM, we went there and as expected he was there entertaining the large number of screaming fans. We took pictures of him, but we weren't able to have a picture with him. We walked around the mall again and we waited for Billy Crawford to arrive. Finally, at around 7PM Billy arrived and the short program started. He sung. danced and made some practical jokes (he is funny, in fairness to him).

It was around 8PM already, so we decided to go at Starbucks already. We fell in line again and waited for some vacant seats. Good thing that we were able to share a seat with someone and we had an instant acquaintance in the persona of Ms. Ruby. We went home afterwards. It was also raining so hard already. Bottomline, we had a great time. :-)

Local Locksmith: Four Important Things to Look for

Article for my previous employer...

Let’s face it; you’ll never really know when you might need the services of a locksmith since after all it isn’t everyday that you’ll be locked up inside your house alone or even inside your car. Things like these really happen when you least expect it and even when you are in a hurry or in an emergency. When you will be caught up in this scenario, the least thing that will help you is to panic since when you do, your judgment will be blocked and for sure you will end up making wrong decisions or worse you cannot even make a decision at all.

During these times, you really need a help from a locksmith; or better yet from a local locksmith if you want to save time and money. However, this might be your first time to be locked up inside your house and you just don’t know any local locksmith. Don’t panic, you have your phone and telephone directory; for sure you can find a good locksmith in your area. More so, you also have your laptop with you and internet access to help you search for a locksmith within your locality. And besides, you can also call a friend of yours or someone you know to help you find a local locksmith. However, due to a great number of local locksmiths, you might also be confused as to which to choose among all the choices. While a part of your decision will be based on the personality and the attitude of the technician, it is good to also have in mind other things to look for in a locksmith.

First and foremost, you must determine the services that you need and the things that you want to be fixed. Local locksmiths are not only there to help during times where you will be locked up inside your house. There are far more services that they can offer and that you might want and need to avail. You can have them install a new high security lock in your house for the protection and safety of the people living inside your house; you can also ask for their services to change the locks in your home, install a peephole in your front door, and they can also offer emergency services for your cars, trucks, vans and RVs.

The next thing that you must pay importance to is the experience level of the locksmith. Don’t just call any locksmith to do the job; he might just add fuel to the fire. Well-trained locksmiths can certainly handle your problems better; as such you should not hesitate to ask about the experience level of a certain locksmith.

One more crucial thing to learn when getting a service from a local locksmith is to get an estimate of the total cost that you will need to pay after. You shouldn’t settle for vague answers because it might just be a strategy to ask more money from you after all the works were completed. Also, if the locksmith gives you a very low charge from a numerous tasks; it might be too good to be true. You should then suspect that there are some hidden fees and it might be for sure that he didn’t include the labor fee with such a very low estimate.

Last but not the least; you should not think that since a locksmith is written on your phonebook, it is also locally based. Your detective instinct and questioning attitude will help a lot in addressing this concern. Once you have cited a real local locksmith, then, you are ready to talk over the services that you need, discuss the total amount that you will need to pay and ask him to come into your location the soonest time possible.

Traveling the Roads of Alaska by RV

I wrote this article for one of my employers before...

Alaska is without a doubt a perfect place for travelers to explore and be amazed with the beautiful flora, landscapes, parks and tourist hot spots. The question now lies as to how to really appreciate all these wonders the best way possible? The answer is simple; you should travel Alaska by RV or recreational vehicle.

Don’t you just love the feeling of traveling with comfort and ease because all the basic physiologic things that you need are just within your vehicle. More so, once you pass by some magnificent scenery along your trip, you can always stop by and take pictures; and if you want to eat your lunch on the woods, you can just park the RV and savor your sumptuous meal while feeling the beauty of nature around you.

You might agree that traveling by RV is unquestionably a perfect way to appreciate the wonders of Alaska the most; however, you might be worried, as well with the cost of having your own RV just for this purpose. If this is your only concern, then, you don’t need to fret so much about it since you can easily rent a recreational vehicle. Once you have rented your own RV for this trip, for sure you will have the most comfortable trip of your life, not to mention that you can travel at your own pace. You can now start traveling the roads of Alaska and explore its over 15 national parks, monuments and preserves.

Alaska is indeed a perfect place for those people who love the outdoor and to enjoy the beauty of nature. With each park having many biking, hiking and driving trails, you will never get bored on your trip. The different parks in Alaska are also perfect spots to observe the wildlife, landscape and flora.

If you love to go on a colder location, you can always change your route and go to Northern Alaska. Gates to the Arctic National Park and Bearing Land Bridge National Preserve lie in the area. In winter time, this part of Alaska offers the best spot to have a majestic view of the aurora borealis, more commonly known as the northern lights. You can dare to see this electrifying view if you can handle a temperature down to -50 degrees.

You can schedule your travel to Alaska on whatever time of the year since each season offers a special attraction. However, if you are longing to see the wildflowers on full bloom and to experience as if the sun never sets; then it will be perfect for you to travel Alaska from June 15 to August 15.

Steam Carpet Cleaning: Three Options in using it for Your Home

Having luxurious flooring at your home brought about by your carpet is undeniably worth every dollar spent, but it doesn’t end there. If you want to feel the grandiose ambiance for a long time, then, you should really invest in keeping your carpet protected and kept clean at all times.

There are different ways to protect your carpet and make it look new for the longest time possible. Without a shadow of a doubt, carpet cleaning isn’t new for you, but what might be new to your ears are the different types of carpet cleaning methods that you can try and use. This article specifically talks about steam carpet cleaning and the three common options on how to avail and use this particular type of method in keeping your carpet clean and in pristine condition.

The first option would be to buy your own steam carpet cleaning machine if you have enough money to spend. You were able to invest for your carpet; I guess it wouldn’t be too much for you to get more money out of your pocket. In buying for a steam carpet cleaning machine, whether on an online shop or a store, you do have to consider specific things such as the style of the machine, the tools that go along with it and its features.

One more thing that you should bear in mind if you want to buy your own carpet cleaning machine is that you should have enough space storage space and you should know how to use it properly or at least someone at your home knows how to handle it. Using steam cleaners for your carpet is perfect for deep cleansing, but when it isn’t used correctly, it can also cause damages to your carpet such as soiling, discoloration and shrinking.

The second option would be to rent a steam carpet cleaner from a local hardware store or from some rental agencies. The rental fee will depend upon the number of hours that you will use it, as well as the type of device that you will choose. Basically, if the steam carpet cleaning machine has more features, then, the rental fee will be more expensive. If you are not sure about the type of steam carpet cleaner to fit what you are looking for, then you can freely ask for help from the customer service representatives to make your decision process easier and so as you can start cleaning your carpet immediately.

The third but not the least option for you to consider would be to hire a local company that offers steam carpet cleaning. This choice will be perfect if you are not familiar with the carpet cleaning process, or if you want to avoid spending much in buying your own carpet cleaning machine. There are different ways to search for a trusted local company that offers steam carpet cleaning. You can definitely ask your neighbors or make some research on the internet or at the yellow page section of a phone directory. Once you have tried and tested a good carpet cleaning company, then you should stick with it.
