Zinc Lozenges for Cold Remedy

I have a bad case of cold and my head is starting to spin again. I don’t want to take a leave from work because I feel that staying at home and doing nothing will just worsen my condition. It doesn’t help that it’s raining hard outside and network signals have suddenly disappeared. My phone’s battery is also acting up I think I’d need some portable phone batteries anytime soon. I was looking up cold remedies online a few minutes ago and came across zinc lozenges. I learned it’s a good cold remedy and it soothes sore throats as well.

If I get a headache this afternoon, I’ll take a paracetamol to combat the pain. I’ll also ask someone to get those zinc lozenges for me so I could be well fast. I really hate getting sick. Here’s some information about zinc lozenges I got from RealSimple.com:

Stylish Accessories from Accessorize London

I was strolling around Mall of Asia (MOA) with the fiancee when I first chanced upon this accessory shop. Aptly named Accessorize London, it sells stylish and fashionable jewelry, bags, belts, head pieces and foot wear that are sure to brighten anyone’s outfit.

don’t you just love my necklace’s bird pendant?

The store was having a sort of end-of-season sale then and you could buy items at 70% off. The frugal in me suddenly became in hyper mode. I perused through the racks and found two really nice necklaces and a bracelet. Actually, I had a hard time choosing jewelry pieces because everything on display was just gorgeous.

Low-Cost Housing in Cavite

I’m a proud owner of a low-cost housing unit in Cavite. It’s actually my gift to my parents who are currently living there. I chose a low-cost house over an expensive one for practical reason. I’d rather go for a low-cost house that I could finish paying for than an expensive one that could end up in the hands of the bank at a slight twist of fate.

Slowly, we are improving the structure and the interiors of the house by introducing repairs here and there. So far, we’re done with tile flooring and back extension and we also bought some furnishings and home appliances to make life easier for our parents. We have more home improvement projects lined up, but we’re doing it one project at a time.

Hassle-Free Travel

In our efforts to have a hassle-free out-of-country travel this October, we’re doing things right. Compared to those people working in the private sector, it’s harder for government employees like us as we have to secure travel clearance first. The requirements for the travel clearance in our office take time to complete. That’s why we’re working on them as early as now.

This is our first time to travel abroad so we’re taking extra caution. We can’t afford to get into trouble at the Immigration. I’ve heard enough of those horrible Immigration experiences, the most recent of them was the case of two Pinoy bloggers who were accused of being drug mules in Bali, Indonesia. Really scary. I hope and pray we have a safe trip.

For the Love of Fast Food

Whenever the fiancee and I hit the mall, we almost always choose to eat fast food. Some of our favorites are KFC, Wendy’s, McDonalds, Pao Tsin, Tokyo Tokyo and of course, the langhap-sarap goodness that is Jollibee. My love affair with fast food started in college. It was during my college years that my appetite for fast food had developed and grown to its present proportion. It also helped that I was once a fast food crew myself, juggling work and school to get college education and have a better life.

Back then, my meager college allowance was spent mostly on fast food. Why not if it was cheap, tasty and served fast to the hungry me? Funny but when I was a college student, I could see the fast food counter filled with smiling crew manning chunky POS hardware from a hundred steps away once I was inside the mall with my blockmates. I guess it was the very attitude of these people (who are actually working students!) and the mouth-watering food photos on display that never failed to convince me to dine in. I didn’t care if fast food were filled with empty calories or that they could make me fatter than ever, all I needed then was to fill my empty stomach and survive college life.
