Looking for New Web Browser

What do you need when you want to type a website URL in your computer? I believed most computer users know about this. Another question is, What web browser are you using in your computer? I am actually using Mozilla Firefox or simply Firefox for a decade now. I am currently using the newest version which is thew FF 18. This afternoon I noticed that that the Alexa Toolbar in my laptop is no longer available. When I searched about it in the internet, I found out that Firefox 18 does not allow Alexa toolbar anymore. I am a blogger and for sure, I need to use Alexa Toolbar.

I previously used Internet Explorer or IE. Since I have a good experience with Firefox, I am loving this browser. Since FF is no longer supporting Alexa toolbar, I ended up downloading Internet Explorer in my laptop today. I tried using it for some hours but I am not so comfortable with it. I believed it is also a good browser since a lot of my friends are using it.

I tried to ask some blogger friends which browser is the best or the better. Most of them told me that Google Chrome is the fastest and the better one. I ended up using Google Chrome now. I am still not comfortable with it and I will see if I will be used to it in a couple of days. I also downloaded Alexa Toolbar and it worked. This afternoon, I tried to download AT in my Firefox browser but it did not go through. After browsing the net, I knew the reason why AT can no longer be downloaded in a Firefox browser.

I believed I will slowly get use with Chrome. I just need some more days before I will be comfortable with it.

There are also other browsers that are available on the net. Opera, Safari, Rocket Melt, Flock, Torch and other browsers are available to use. So far, I only tried Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

Yes, it is currently Fasching season in Germany. Fasching means carnival or the fifth season. Other parts in Germany call it Fastnacht or Fastnet. What I love during this season is the carnival parade. You can see a lot of participants wearing colourful costumes of many kinds. If you also go to some German Gasthaus or restaurants, you can see bands playing music while a Fachingsball or carnival party is being held. I am wondering if some of these musicians got their gadgets at Planet Waves at musicians friend. I need to ask one if I go to a carnival party. For sure, it will be loud and you will have a lot of fun inside. Speaking about fun? We will have it tomorrow because we will be going out to celebrate a friend’s birthday.


Faster With a Mouse

I am not talking about an animal here. I am talking about mouse, a computer accessory. I know a lot of people can work fast on their laptop without using a mouse. I cannot! I am faster when I use a mouse when browsing online. I wish I can browse faster without a mouse but without it, browsing online or using my laptop is like a turtle walking on the shore.

What is important, I know how to use it and my laptop. Any complain? lolz! Have a nice day peeps!


Winter Sale is Almost Coming

I believed most ladies would love the topic called shopping! Yes, women love shopping!  A friend told me last week that there are already a lot of stores offering sales and discounts on their goods  in the nearest mall. I told  her that that we have to wait  until  the coming winter sale and for sure, we can have more discounts during this sale season. I would like to tell her about this patagonia tres parka. I want to buy another parka also if I find one that is on sale. I want one that is waterproof and windproof. This will be perfect if I go for sightseeing during winter season.

I can’t wait for next weekend to go shopping again! Have a great weekend to all!


My New Nikon J1 Digital Camera

I am so happy when  Santa Klaus bought me a camera last Christmas.  It is the Nikon J1 Digital camera. I love my  Canon DSLR camera but sometimes I am   tired of  carrying  it due to its size.  This will be my new travel buddy when I   go sightseeing around. Thanks  to Santa when  he gave me this present.

Nikon J1 is one of the two Nikon 1 System Cameras. It is more compact than its sister model  which is the Nikon V1.  It is more compact than the other and I love  its design. With this very handy camera, I can just put it in my handbag wherever I go travelling.

I will share some pictures I took from my travels using this  camera. I love my new travel buddy!


Infographics When Americans Go On Travel

This infographic shows the main holiday expenses: food, alcohol, trips, gifts, duty free, travel & transport, holiday decorations, clothes, sports, and accessories. New Year is a great opportunity to spend a vacation in: Nevada, New York, Colorado, and Florida. 37% of Americans even don’t think about their spending, especially when they are on vacation. Astoundingly, 63% of Americans take out payday loans to get quick cash, along with high fees. During the holiday season, it is necessary not only to control your expenses, but also to use payday loans right way, for emergencies.

New Year’s Tasks

Happy New Year everyone! I am finally updating this blog. Anyway, how was you first week of the month and of the year 2013? I hope everything went fine and okey. I had a great one, if you have to ask me.

This year is another year full of challenges for me. There are a lot of things that I would like  to accomplish. There are a lot of projects and tasks that are waiting both online and offline. First on my list is to clean my car maybe shop for hjc motorcycle helmets. I am not really the one who need the latter but a friend of mine. There are also a lot of things that I need to learn more in the blogosphere.

I will try my best to do all the tasks that are in my list. I hope I can accomplish most or 99% of it this year. In God’s will!

Wishing you all wonderful 2013! Cheers!


December 21, 2012- End of the World?

Hello lovely people  of this world! We are still alive ! Yes, we are! The world  did not come to an end. I did not believed this when I heard it some months ago.  I heard from some people  saying that they  must be ready when this day will come. Some are  even storing a lot of food and water in their homes.  Others are heading to the mountain of Bucarach  in southern France because they believed that  it is only the place to be safe when the Doomsday comes.

In other parts of the world  like in Asia, it is December 22, 2012  now and Doomsday is over! This means that we will be continuing the celebration of the holiday season. Besides, only God knows when  will be the end of the world.  If that day comes, are you ready?
What does wikipedia says about December 21, 2012? Keep reading below..

“The 2012 phenomenon was a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or transformative events would occur around 21 December 2012. This date was regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae were proposed as pertaining to this date, none of them accepted by mainstream scholarship.

A New Age interpretation of this transition was that the date marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants would undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 21 December 2012 would mark the beginning of a new era.[8] Others suggested that the date marked the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world included the arrival of the next solar maximum, an interaction between Earth and the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or Earth’s collision with a planet called Nibiru.”


Create Your Custom Product Brochures

I visited last time a friend who planned to open a bar-restaurant. She showed me the area where she will be opening her new business. She also asked for suggestions on how to promote her products and services. I am not quite an expert about this matter but since I had previous experiences with marketing strategy being a former business owner, I suggested her something.

Create Some Advertising Strategies- I told her she needed to create her own brochures and flyers and she must distribute it before the grand opening of her bar-restaurant. In this way, the people she knows including targeted customers will know that her business will be opening soon. I also reminded her that she needed to have business calling cards and her own brochures that contains for example the food menus and drinks that she will be offering for customers.

If you are planning to open a new business, you should see to it that you promote your products and services. If you liked printed brochures, there are printing companies who can help you with it. You can even customize on what designs, size and also the content of the brochures.

Brochures with classy and high-quality paper and printing will surely give you an impact in your marketing strategies.


Early Christmas Party

It was a lovely and memorable party we had. Our friend invited us for her early Christmas party. She told us that if we will not come to her party, she will not host it. She invited a lot of her friends but only some showed up. Even though it was only five of us plus three children, we still enjoyed the night. A sumptuous dinner was prepared by her. After taking our dinner we did some karaoke singing while sipping our glass of wine. It was truly fun!

The highlight of our Christmas party was the exchanging of gifts. I believed everybody was excited when we were drawing the gifts. After the drwa, everyone was happy with the presents they received.

That was indeed an enjoyable evening! Thank you so much Jean for hosting the early Christmas Party.
