Pizza Hut Meal and the Conjuring

Yesterday, hubby and I decided to watch The Conjuring movie at home via #BrightHouse #OnDemand. This movie will set us into the scary mood for Halloween. The Conjuring is a supernatural horror film starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. They portrayed as Ed and Lorraine Warren, the paranormal investigators. This movie is about the case they handled on the Perron family. The family experienced a scary events in their farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island happened in 1971.

The movie is based on a true story and it was scary but I admit, this is not the scariest movie that I saw. I recommend that you watch it. It is worth watching for. Since we stayed at home, pizza, pasta and chicken wings are awesome part in our movie watching.

I ordered the good for two creamy chicken alfredo with breadsticks at Pizza Hut. The big meal I ordered was good for our lunch and dinner.
I also ordered the dinner box since I love the cinnamon that comes with it.

We ate good while watching the movie. We can only eat faster as adrenalin rush sets in LOL. The only time I jolted from my seat was when one of the girls was attacked by the witch. Remember that scene when the witch was at the top of the cabinet? BOOO! Happy Halloween.

Visit a Range Near You to Learn about Firearms

Even though the debate over guns continues to rage on in America, there are many people on both sides of the political spectrum who are interested in learning how to properly handle a firearm. If you are new to the world of guns, you might feel a little bit of trepidation at first. However, doing some research and visiting sites such as can help you figure out how to get started.

The Range
In order to become the deadeye you’ve always wanted to be, you’ll need a safe space where you can practice your shooting. Many shooting enthusiasts choose to do their target practice at an indoor range, where conditions can be controlled more effectively. Indoor shooting ranges usually feature climate control, so you can practice your shooting without having to wear a bulky winter coat or gloves. In fact, many indoor shooting ranges will also feature a state-of-the-art HEPA filtration system, which can clear away the acrid odor of singed bullet casing and keep the air free of gun smoke. In addition to a regular shooting area, complete with lanes and targets, many indoor ranges feature an amenity known as a shoot house. The shoot house is a place where you can practice using your weapon in an environment akin to your home, in preparation against home invasions. If you’re looking to become a truly great shot, or even if you’re just trying to brush up on your skills with firearms, an indoor range might be the place for you.

The Store
While you’re visiting the range, you may see a piece of equipment that you decide you want for yourself. Fortunately, many indoor gun ranges also have retail outlets where you can acquire all kinds of accessories for your firearm. This includes holsters, special belts designed specifically for a concealed carry, and cleaning kits. Of course, you’ll also be able to purchase ammo at one of these stores as well. If you don’t know what exactly you’re looking for, many ranges have websites such as, which you can peruse for the different items you might need. Whether you’re a novice shooter or an expert with firearms, visiting an indoor range can provide you with the community and the resource knowledge you need.

Steamed Semi-Ripe Plantain Using the #HamiltonBeach #Steamer

Back home, one of my favorite filling snacks is "SIOPAO with Red Bean Filling". It is a steamed bread bun normally filled with meat (pork or chicken) as well as vegetables and sweet filling. I can buy Siopao in the Asian Store but, I seldom find the red bean filling. I challenge myself to make a Siopao at home so; I bought this Hamilton Beach steamer. I love this steamer, my super helper!

Steamed Semi-Ripe Plantain is another favorite snacks of mine and because of this steamer, I was able to enjoy eating "nilung-ag nga saging"  :-) though, I used the steamer instead of having it cook inside the pan of boiling water. I don't like to see a cracked peeling so; a steamer will do the trick and it was perfectly cooked. Try it!

Here it is. When the plantain was ready, I strip and throw the peeling, and sliced the plantain into bite size. I have a spicy and salted shrimp fry, a perfect dip for my plantain.

Oh, I was thinking of making this now. Let me check if I have plantain in the pantry. Oh my goodness, my hungry tummy is excited! I will see you tomorrow. Feel free to check my other food adventure. Thanks for stopping by.

I Love NY Pizza

Last Tuesday, we went to Orlando to meet a client at lunch time. She wanted to eat pizza so; we meet nearby her office. She loves this place.

I Love NY Pizza
 6607 S Semoran Blvd
Orlando, FL 32822

Hubby and I will be heading to Cheesecake Factory at Millennia Mall so; at that time, each one of us only ordered a piece of pizza and a drink.. Since I am not a pizza lover, this is really good for me coz I ate it all.

The place is clean and the walls have photos of bands. I don't recognize some of them though. The ambiance is really good. It seems that we were in Italy with the music on the background (wink).

This is the entrance of I Love NY Pizza.

Anyway, would I recommend this place? Of course! Hubby enjoyed our pizza and the place is clean, that is good enough for me.

Best Guitar Brand

I have a guitar given to me by my husband about three years ago but, I seldom play with it. I played few times then, the #4 string broke. I was planning to buy the string but my bad, I keep forgetting every time I was in the mall. Or, maybe I am not inspired to play because there was no one around to enjoy the music with. Back home, my friends and I love to play the guitar all the time. One strum and everyone will start singing a harmony and I missed that moment.

My guitar is similar to gibson les paul junior ebony though, this one is truly gorgeous. Mine look so simple but, the sound is excellent after all, the maker is the best guitar brand around. Tomorrow, hubby and I will be going to the mall to buy the string and that is the only reason why we will be going there. I do not think I will forget it this time.

Mixed Seafood in Coconut Milk

When hubby and I decided to go to Publix that Sunday, we bought snow crabs, shrimps, mussels and vegetables to go with my mixed seafood recipe. I will be posting the recipe on my next post so; check it out if you have the time. Oh, I learn to cook this with the help of watching YouTube (wink).

Here it is and I tell you, the coconut milk truly makes this mixed seafood really delicious.

Hubby loves it and he wants me to cook next time using squash, okra and more seafood, possibly with squid and clams. Of course, I will share it here. Thanks for stopping by. See you again.

New Office Furniture Can Increase Productivity

People spend more hours every week living in their office space than they usually do in their house or apartment. If this is a true statement, then why not have a comfortable work space. Feeling at home and comfortable in your work space can make you a more productive individual in the office. In order to make your office space more comfortable, go and look at stores that provide office furniture in Boise. Sit on chairs and make sure they are comfy. Try out the desks and lamps and make sure they will fit your office space.

If you are having clients come to your office, then you should make sure that your office appearance is a good representation of your quality of work. What client wants someone to work for them when their office looks shabby? Office furniture can make or break the look of your office. You need to not only have your office furniture look good, but you also have to make sure that your furniture is comfortable for your employees to work at. If your employees are in comfortable desks and chairs, then they will be more productive employees.

If your employees are working in old office furniture, then they are probably not very productive in their job. Today’s employees are spending more and more time stagnating in an office chair, sitting at a desk, and looking at a computer screen. This kind of environment is very hard on the body. Every office employee should be taking a 15-minute break from their desk every two hours. They should be getting up and taking a short walk to the water cooler or around the office. If your employees are not in comfortable desks and chairs, they will become stiff and sore. With improper office equipment they will get backaches, which will decrease their quality of work.

If you purchase new and comfortable office furniture in Boise, your employees will have less stress in the workplace, and it can increase their productivity. You will soon see the benefits of modern office equipment in your employee’s quality of work. In no time, your office will be a happier and more productive place to work.

Orlando Restaurant: Chili's in Le Vista

Last week, after visiting Disney World, we do not want to be in the middle of the crowd trying to squeezed in to the monorail station so; we went home before the rush. We headed to Chili's in this address by the Orlando International Airport:

6949 S Semoran Blvd
Orlando, FL 32822
(phone) 407-859-3234

Hubby's order is the Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs w/ black beans in Original sauce.

We ordered an appetizer, the Half Flatbread.

My order is a Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs w/ home style fries in Memphis Dry Rub. This tastes good but, I like hubby's choice better.

This is Chili's location near the airport. When we live in Orlnado, our condo is just 2 miles from here so; this Chili's is really our favorite location.

We love Chili's because their prices are affordable, the service is great and the food is truly delicious.

How about you? Which Chili's is your favorite location?

Usually, the portion is a good size so; when we are famished like on this day, what we ordered fills us up. No space for desserts. Oh by the way, I used my GC provided by #AMEX. I paid less than $10 for everything. Now, check out the Chili's in your area soon. Thanks for stopping by.

Feeling Thankful for the Cold with a Workaholics Bear Coat

That time of year has come once again. The NFL season is a quarter of the way finished and the leaves are changing colors. Crock pots everywhere are filled to the brim with delicious soups, roasts, and chili type meals. One thing that the changing seasons remind you of is that everything changes. Your life will continue to grow and evolve. Just remember that rain is always followed by sunshine. So cuddle up in some warm clothes and enjoy your family with a cup of hot cocoa or tea and tell stories by the fireside. Many species of animals will spend this time sleeping. They’ve loaded up their fat storage for a long winter sleep so that they can wake up with renewed vigor in the spring. That’s right; bears aren’t just a mascot for an NFC football team. They’re a real animal and they hibernate during the cold season. You are a whole different kind of animal. With a Workaholics bear coat, you can live life to the fullest during these cold and trying times.

All Emotions Cause Physical Reactions

Many people choose to lament the inevitable changes of life. If you can’t stop something, there is no point in making the situation worse by complaining. Negative emotions are tied to changes in your health. Being pulled over by the flashing red and blue lights of a policeman will trigger fear. This will send adrenaline and other stress hormones surging through your body. Your blood pressure will increase and you will have an elevated heart rate. Most people know the effects of stress on the body very well. If one emotion can trigger a physical response, then all emotions can most certainly do the same.

Choose Your Attitude and Master Life 

The cool thing about being a human being is that you get to choose. Viktor Frankl survived the holocaust. He saw some pretty disturbing things along the way. However, he also saw things that gave him hope. He managed to find a way to feel happy in spite of his awful situation. With a Workaholics bear coat, you will be forever thankful for when the weather turns cold.

Crepes for Breakfast

One morning, hubby made crepes for breakfast. I always love eating crepes with peanut butter and strawberry on it. That morning, I decided to take a photo before I ate my crepes. Here's what I have.

I always have 4 pcs max of crepes for breakfast. I have peanut butter on it and garnished with blueberry fruits.

Check out the plain look of my crepes.

A spoonful of peanut butter, rolled it, garnished with Hershey's chocolates and blueberry fruits then,  sprinkled a powdered sugar.

Every once in a while, crepes are my breakfast. It is really filling. Let's chow.

$0.99 cents Breakfast in IKEA Restaurant

At 8 AM, we drove to Winter Park today for Blue Shield/Blue Cross appointment. Oh yeah, #Obamacare blah blah! Guess what, my tentative premium is $230/month! Where will I get that amount? Surely, BHO doesn't care at all! I am furious and I probably would pay the fines! Seriously, that premium is ridiculous! Enough for that! The only sane that I know cares is IKEA!

After the appointment, we decided to visit IKEA to clear our mind by window shopping and have a breakfast. IKEA surely cares for their customers. Imagine this plate is only $0.99 cents and the coffee is free. Customers like us patronized IKEA products because they are quality made and affordable therefore, IKEA is doing well in business. Knowing that, IKEA wants to return the favor by giving free breakfast (in some days) and offering super affordable breakfast for their customers. That is real CARE.

Anyway,  we have no plans to shop but, as we went out from the store, we bought three items for my mom then; we head to #DisneyWorld. If you have IKEA Home Store nearby your place, check it out. You will surely love this store. Don't forget to check out their restaurant too.

#Klondike #Reese's: Give in to your #ChocolateCravings

When was the last time you close your eyes and just give in to your chocolate cravings? If you are dieting, it must be hard for you right? Would you rather deny your simple indulgence to attain that figure? Go on and you need a tap on your shoulder for being so focused! I applaud you for trying and I admire you for that, really. Oh, I just want to share though that once in a while, I crave for chocolates. Unlike you, I don't like chocolate but, since yesterday, I have been munching and enjoying this yummy goodness Klondike. Reese's is really delicious and oh so good, want some? I am winking at yah LOL.

That is so true, I am not fond of chocolates. I am not into sweets. Once in a while, I am craving for it though. Hubby and I went to Wal-Mart yesterday to check on their Fall Decors and I got so hungry. When I pass by the frozen aisle, I saw the Klondike, the favorite of the late Sandy, my Father-in-law.

Hubby and I missed him so  much so; we decided to grab a Klondike and have it as a snack as we drove home. FIL loves Klondike. Hubby and I talked about him how he loves to eat it as he watch the TV. We missed him a lot.
