Daddy, how was I born?

My husband and I met online and i am not ashamed of that. I wasn't really looking for a relationship online because i did not believe something real would actually happen online. There may be a possiblity but very rare, at least for me. But it happened... and here i am now, happily married to my husband whom i just met online.

I thought about sharing this story to you because it seems related to what i just told you.

A little boy goes to his father and asks ........

'Daddy, how was I born?' The father answers, 'Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!

Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.

Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room, and googled each other.

There your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive..

As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:

You got Male!

Master's Degree in Teaching at USC: Highly Recommended!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.

To survive in this harsh world where we live in, one has to be competitive in the business. Education and skills are great weapons to be in the race. A college degree is no longer a guarantee to a good job, as the standard is getting higher and higher. A master’s degree is definitely a better option. I have seen wide array of offerings for education but I have not really paid much attention to it before. I thought I didn’t really need it. Guess I was wrong.

With these online degrees offered all over, getting a master’s degree has never been so easy, but choosing the best is a tough decision to make. Personally, I would pick a degree that is in demand like a teaching degree, for instance. I would pick a method that will get me the degree in the quickest time possible and that would have to be an online degree. Then, I would pick one that is offered by a respected institution. These are just few of the things that I take into consideration, which led me to the best choice - the USC Rossier School of Education’s Master of Arts in Teaching @USC.

Why Master of Arts in Teaching @USC? First, it is very convenient. Access to the internet makes this as the most convenient way of getting a degree. I can say it is also a lot quicker than studying in campus because it is an accelerated program which can be completed in 12 months, while maintaining high quality education that students get from highly qualified faculty who have been known for their great contributions to modern education. It combines highly interactive online learning and field-based experiences.

It also offers full student status and a package of benefits such as tuition reimbursement program, scholarships, a chance to be a part of the Trojan Family, participation in commencement ceremonies and free lifetime Alumni Association memberships, among others. For over 100 years in the business, USC has been known internationally in research and innovative technology in teacher education No wonder, it has been ranked #22 in the United States and #9 among all private universities by US News and World Report.

If you are seriously thinking about improving your life, check it out by learning more about the program information and through the MAT@USC Student Blog. It is never too late to get a degree. The MAT at USC would definitely change your life.

Netflix: is it the best choice?

Hubby and I have been watching movies, at least 3-4 a week. We used to be with Blockbuster and loved it up until they continuously raised their rates like every month. We got fed up so we quit. We signed up with Family video which was way too cheap but we needed to drive there to pick up movies and return them on time. Now, we are with Netflix and so far, i have no complains. We can watch movies from our computers and i heard we can even hook it up to our TV so we can watch it on the bigger screen. which we haven't tried yet. We missed watching tonight, though but it was OK as i need to do some tasks anyway. It is getting late and needed to do one more task before heading off to bed. Good night everyone! By the way, if you have a movie to recommend, feel free to share.

Send Your Love Through Giftcards From Friendgiftr

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of FriendGiftr. All opinions are 100% mine.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and I bet most of us are now thinking of what presents to give to our dear fathers out there. I personally hate shopping for presents but don’t get me wrong. I love shopping but only for myself. When I do have to give presents, I always buy giftcards, because I thought it is less hassle on my part and whoever gets it can use it for whatever he or she wants. But I fail to realize that giving a giftcard for that particular store limits the giftcard recipient’s option to get something outside of that store.

For instance, on Mother’s Day, I gave a friend a giftcard from Wal-Mart, thinking she could use it there, knowing it is one of her favorite stores. It was too late when she mentioned about a nice bracelet that she saw on sale at I know at that very moment, that it would have made her happier had I given her a giftcard from FriendGiftr. Even if the giftcard was not for Overstock, she could have easily swapped it to Overstock and bought herself that beautiful bracelet. is one of my favorite sites online, which is also one of the many merchants - restaurants, retailers and online stores where FriendGiftr giftcards could be used for.

What is really nice about FriendGiftr, is the flexibility or options that it offers to its users – both the giftcard senders and receivers as well. With it, you can send your loved ones customized giftcards from the website itself, through Facebook, Iphone, Blackberry and Android. Access to their service is actually just within your reach. Now, receivers or giftcard owners, on the other hand, have the option to swap their giftcards to any of the more than 120 merchants available, without any additional cost. A single giftcard can be used to multiple merchants. Amazing, isn’t it?

So, if you are still hunting for the best gift you can give on Father’s Day, I’m sure FriendGiftr is the best way to go.

Las Vegas pics...

Here are some of the pics i would love to share with you on my recent Vegas trip with hubby.

The snowy mountains .... an amazing view from the plane on our way to Las Vegas

Here is another one! I'm not sure if those are rivers?

The Excalibur Hotel, where we stayed.

The strip at night

The Fremont Street experience ... the old Vegas

There are a lot more photos but these pretty much show Las Vegas is a different experience one should not miss, if given the chance.

Sunday, June 6, 2010 and more photos!

I took more than 600 photos while in Vegas for 6 days and i want to post some of them but I just have to organize these pics. Vegas is really worth a visit! I love the city, the lights, the shows and believe me, even the hot weather. My only complain was: we needed to do a lot of walking. You woudl not appreciate the sights if you don't walk. I tried the casino, played few bucks but that was it. I never won, though, But, i learned to play video poker and enjoyed it. I don't find the slot machine exciting, my $20 would not last for 10 minutes on it, lol! If given the chance, i would love to visit Vegas again, as i know there are still places that i haven't seen while there.
