Makeover Tips for Women



Sometimes it’s just time to put yourself first for a change and treat your mind and body to an all over makeover. We all need to be pampered every now and then and whether it’s the kids, that mental job or relationship or family commitments, we are often the last ones to get any attention. Maybe you’re self conscious about your eyebrows and want to enquire about getting an eyebrow transplant, or perhaps you’ve always wanted to find out if blondes really do have more fun? Whatever you want to makeover we’ve got the lowdown on how to give your body what it needs:

Write it out
First off, we aren’t talking about a list of things you need to ‘fix.’ This is a list of things you want to makeover. This could be everything from toning up your body, which is more of a long term makeover goal, to things like getting your colours done so you can find out what tones work best with your skin tone.

Be kind to yourself
The above list is to help you identify what you want to makeover, and it shouldn’t be everything! Take time to think about things about yourself that you like and don’t ever need to change.

Take timeout
Now that you’ve made your list take the time you need to begin your makeover. Don’t feel guilty for doing this. If you don’t set a few hours a week aside for yourself, you are likely to simply not get it.

Making-over your mind
It’s easy to focus entirely on the outside but what about making over the inside? Is there a new skill you’ve always wanted to learn? Do you take time out everyday to try to relax and unwind? If you’re stressed you can’t be your best. Look after yourself, make a list of a few positive affirmations and say them before you start your day and give your mind some TLC.

Major areas you want to change
You may want to get your teeth fixed, or perhaps you want to get a breast enhancement? Make enquiries with a number of cosmetic surgeons and find out which one is best suited for what you want. These are areas you want to really take time to find out who is the best person to help you get the results you want. A process not to be rushed.

Phone a friend
You may have friends or close colleagues who have had a particular surgery done that you would like to get done too. Ask them who they had do the surgery/procedure and if they were happy with the results. Referrals are often the best way to find a great doctor/dentist/surgeon.

We all need to focus a little attention on ourselves from time to time and there’s nothing wrong with doing that. All women have to wear many hats in a day and can often be the last ones to give themselves any attention. You owe it to yourself to give your mind and body the pampering it deserves. I hope our tips have given you some helpful advice about how to go about giving yourself a makeover that will make you feel and look great!

A Nostalgia House



This house is becoming a hot topic for my blogs this week. I’ll post it again in Nostalgia post since it very relates with memories, especially my father's. When I stayed in this house, my age was under three years old. Still too young to remember all details of the house.

My father worked at national electricity company. When he was placed in Bogor (West Java, Indonesia), his position was the Branch Head. He and all family were allowed to stay in an official house, the beautiful big house that has Dutch colonial building structure. After four years, my father moved to another town and left the house.

I spent my college days in Bogor. Retiring in 1996, my father decided to buy a house in Bogor and accompanied me here. We live together in the same house until now.

Back to this nostalgia house again. Located in Ceremai St, it’s not far from our home. Before, we sometimes passed by the house; and it looked empty. About one year ago, I noticed that the house has transformed into a café.

Though it has opened for public for months, we just visited the café last Sunday. My father looked interested and wanted to see around the café. He also told one staff that he had ever lived there. Fortunately, the staff was kind enough to take us wandering around.

My father still remembers well all details. During our lunch, he told us interesting stories that happened in this house. Here are some interesting stories : a gardener who got possessed (by a spirit) after felling the mango tree in the back yard, a woman helper who gave birth a baby by herself in the back room (she didn’t tell my mom about her pregnancy) and baby-me who always crying every coming dusk. The house now is becoming a horror-themed café. Did the café owner hear these stories and then decided to create a horror style? I don’t know.

Windows 8: Features that Will Make it a Breeze to Install and Repair

Everyone one who is a PC and Windows user probably knows about the blue screen of death by now. When that screen appears on your Windows based machine, you know something has gone seriously wrong, you have lost data, and there is little you can do about it. It normally means you will have to reinstall the whole system.

A Windows 8 blue screen will apparently exist. It might even be black as some rumours have it. That can be a little concerning for all of us. It does imply there could be those serious problems will occur with Windows 8. On the other hand, there are a number of features that will exist to make it much easy to install our system, applications and recover if something goes seriously wrong. Installing Windows 8, and repairing it will not be the hassle we are currently used to with Windows. Here is a look at the reasons why.

· Installation.Windows 8 will not come in the form of a disk. However, it is probable one will be available online if you have some strange reason why the easy installation from the soon to be announced Windows 8 website. Essentially, Windows 8 will rotate around the website for it. This will mean installation and updating of your machine is designed to be an online activity. Windows 8 will install, and it will install the best configuration for your machine.
· Update.Windows already regularly updates, or wants to update itself as an online activity. This will be no different with Windows 8. The way this happens, might be a little different. Instead of heavy and slow downloads, the system will appear more like a cloud operating system, in that updates will be instantly integrated into the system.
· When Disaster Strikes. There is one feature that we will all be very happy about. The Windows 8 system will have a push button reset feature. If you do happen to have a situation where your operating system crashes, and you do get that black or blue screen or death, there will be the choice to reset you operating system to the original factory settings at the push of a button WITHOUT losing any of your data. An excellent feature that will take a whole lot of pain out of using Windows for all of us. More often than not, it is the fear of making changes that might result in disaster, that makes us feel nervous and overly cautious with our PCs. This will no longer be the case. Do what you like, because if all goes wrong, you can reset it with ease.
· Apps.Windows 8 is designed to incorporate the language of web-based applications into the system better than any other system that exists today. This will mean web-based applications will run extremely fast and take full advantage of the whole machine’s processing power, and not just use the processing power available for that single browser.

On top of that, all Windows 8 applications will be available from a single App Store. Something Apple users are very used to. This will mean searching for apps and software will be a thing of the past. Microsoft will also release web-based versions of your favourite apps, such as Microsoft Office, as Office 365. This will mean the application is actually not on your machine, but on the Microsoft server. There are a number of benefits of this, but that is another whole article.

Windows 8 can be expected to be a leap forward in the world of computing, and a welcome and safe experience for all Windows users. It will bring together all those companies, developers and manufacturers producing all that software and hardware under one roof.

Siraman Traditional Ceremony




Siraman (bathing) is one of traditional ceremonies (in Sundanese and Javanase culture of Indonesia) that held before the wedding day. The main meaning is to cleanse the soul and body of would-become bride and groom; before marriage vows are said in the next day. It’s not a must-do ceremony, you may skip it.

I just describe it a little here. Siraman (bathing traditional ceremony) is usually held in the afternoon, in the bathroom or in the yard, at each house of parents’ bride. It’s very important to list seven people who will pour water to the bride/groom. Not only parents, it could be also close family and elder people in the family. The water should be from the good nature water source and flowers such as roses and jasmines are blended into the water. I didn't capture the real moments since I came late to my aunt's house.

Things to Remember for a Family Outing to the Pool

Every summer one of the most ordinary getaways families choose is an outing to the pool. The warmth of the sun just makes it perfect to play with the kids in the water and have a fun bonding moment. Before going to an outing planning is essential so you are prepared, not only to have fun but in case anything goes wrong. To make sure that you get all the things you need in your suitcases, here are a few things you should bear in mind for a family outing to the pool.

First things first, you need to plan in advance if you want to make certain that you have a fun and exciting outing. Deciding on the time and the venue for the outing can take some time so it is a good idea to plan at least 2 weeks ahead. It is good to select the date when everyone is free and has no other important things to do. This is so they don’t have to worry about anything during the outing. When it comes to the venue, make sure you find a place that is family friendly. It is a fine idea to search online for the best venue and look reviews of their prior customers. Make all the essential reservations so you make sure you will have an accommodation.

Next comes packing. Sunscreen, swimsuits,
swim shirts, hats, foods, and drinks are the most significant things you should bring. When choosing a sunscreen, go for something that has at least SPF 30. Hats are also necessary so you can guard your face from the scorching heat of the sun. Make sure to bring some food and drinks for the trip also, that way you can save some money.

When it comes to bathing suits, always take an additional just in case you require them. A good swimsuit could be something that has a built in SPF for more protection against the sun. There are a variety of them being sold online. If you are in search of plus size bikinis or
plus size swim shorts, don’t worry they have those too. If you have children coming with you, you can try baby banz. They provide everything you need for your children to wear for a fun day at the pool.

Do not overlook to carry you’re a first aid kit, especially if you have children. If playing gets a little rough, you can treat scratches and wounds. If you have babies coming with you, don’t forget all their things. Make sure to bring their bassinet so they have a protected place to sleep in. It is also good to take a camera so you can capture all the enjoyable moments with your family.

All in all, keep in mind to arrange everything ahead of time so you don’t end up cramming. There is nothing more fun than a day spent with whole family together so make sure you treasure every moment. Keep the children always in sight to make sure their safety. Have fun!

Sky Watch: Looking through Weeds

Though growing wild, weeds can frame this sunset beautifully.
I also want to share a sweet poem by Lilli Singh :


Listen to the Sunset

Listen to the sunset,
Hear its silent sigh
As it falls down the horisen
Warning, the moon is nigh

Listen to the sunset
Hear its silent threat
That darkness will be upon us
It makes everyone upset

Listen to the sunset
The vanity of its words
How beautiful this sunset is
With its colour, and birds

Listen to the sunset
See its pretty hue
But I cant enjoy the sunset
If I am not with you

All the pretty colours are meaningless
So are the birds, and the sounds
Because it all means nothing to me
If you are not around

Just remember this though,
Promise you wont forget,
Even if your far away,
We'll be watching the same sunset

So listen to the sunset
Enjoy its beauty true
When you see it, think of me
And I will think of you

China Care Foundation- Helping Orphans with a New Life

It is somewhat known that living conditions in China can be quite harsh for the majority of the population there. It is also known that due to the population boom there is a cap put in place that limits the amount of children a family can have to 1.

So if a child is born with a disability or abnormality they are usually abandoned to underfunded and crowded orphanages. This is a sad tale indeed, but then enters Matt Dalio, a young man looking for his Eagle Scout project and wanted to do some good in the world.

Having lived in China as a boy, Matt Dalio became aware of the hardships Chinese orphans face at a young age. So when he got the opportunity to help, he wasted no time and started the China Care Foundation. The foundation raises funds so Chinese orphans can afford to get simple surgeries, which in turn make them more adoptable. That is what the foundation was at its inception and initially was only out to raise about $50,000. Matt Dalio and his foundation has grown quite a bit since then. They have currently raised over $1.5 million, helped 80 children be adopted in American families, helped put 90 children into Chinese foster families, raised money to preform over 100 surgeries and renovated 3 different orphanages. So far the China care foundation has done a lot of good and shows little sign of slowing down. If you or anyone you know would like to get involved in the China Care foundation, go to chinacare.org.

Tips for Improving Your Kids Confidence around Water

If you have a backyard pool or if you spend a lot of time around water, such as at the beach, by a river or lake, it is important that your kids feel confident and safe. Many children unfortunately drown each year, and many in backyard pools, so it is important they are educated about water safety, that they are taught how to swim and that your pool area is secured by a safety fence. You want your children to be able to enjoy their time spent around water, especially as many families like to spend their summer holidays by the beach or at a pool. For children that don't swim well one way to help build their confidence is to buy them floatation aids that assist them when swimming. These can be bought from any pool supplies store.

Swimming Lessons

Every child should be taught how to swim. All public pools and some private ones offer lessons. Make sure they are accredited and that they are run by fully qualified swimming teachers. Your children can start lessons from around the age of six months, although these lessons are more about water familiarisation. A weekly lesson will cost you around ten dollars but it is well worth it, particularly for the peace of mind. It will also mean your children will not be afraid of the water which is a big problem with children who can't swim.

Be there for them

Let your children know that you will always keep them safe. Always be there watching when they are swimming and don't take your eyes off them. It is a good idea to undertake a first aid course and learn how to resuscitate. Hopefully you will never need to do this but it is a valuable skill to have and first aid courses are not that expensive.

Join a club

Improve your kids confidence around water by increasing the number of activities they actually do around water. If you live near a beach enrol your child in the local life saving club. As well as being fantastic community clubs they offer great opportunities for kids and get them involved in all sorts of activities, as well as getting them outside and exercising. If you don't live near a beach your child might want to join a local swimming team, which will not only improve their swimming skills but they can begin to compete at swimming competitions. For those who don't like getting wet so much there are other activities on the water that they can get involved in like sailing, canoeing or kayaking. Groups like Cubs and Scouts do lots of different activities, and many of them involve water.

Education

Teaching your kids about pool safety is also important, and even have rules in place if you own a pool, such as no running around the pool, no diving in the shallow end or jumping on to pool toys. Make sure that your children know to always shut the safety gate around your pool, particularly if they have younger brothers or sisters who don't know how to swim.

My niece, Hana, and his father were playing with waves on Pangandaran Beach (West Java, Indonesia). She isn't afraid of water but she always be careful when around the pool and beach. Ruby Tuesday

Frangipani Flower

These common flowers are popular for their unique sweet-scented clusters of colorful, bright, waxy and lifelong flowers. The trees produce flowers ranging from yellow to pink.

Do you want to know the history behind the flower’s name? Frangipani was the name of an Italian perfume used to scent gloves in the 16th century and named after its maker, Marquis Frangipani. When the frangipani flower was found, its natural perfume reminded people of the scented gloves and so the flower was called Frangipani. The genus name, Plumeria honors Charles Plumier, a 17th century French botanist.

Five Safety Tips Your Children Should Learn

It is important that your children learn all about keeping themselves safe, avoiding danger and being wary of strangers. You don't want to frighten your children but there are things you can teach them so they are more aware of the dangers that they could come across. Unfortunately the reality is that sometimes accidents and bad things happen, and there are people out there who have no concern for others and their safety. Take appropriate steps yourself to protect your family, and installing security doors and security screens is a good start.

Don't open the door to strangers

You need to teach your children about the hazard of strangers. Not everyone is a danger, of course not, but it is impossible to tell who is a friend and who is a foe. Even as adults we can't always tell and this is something that is even harder for children who are often quite trusting of adults. Teaching them that they should never open the front door if someone knocks is a start. Either they let you answer it or they open the front door but leave the security door shut and locked. With a security door you can still see out and speak to the person, but with a lot of security doors they can't see in.

Never go with a stranger

This is a vital lesson to teach your children. They should never accept a lift from someone they don't know or accept an offer by someone to walk them home. You hear cases where some children have been grabbed by strangers and put into cars and kidnapped. Don't frighten your child but warn them of the dangers of strangers and that if anything like this was ever to happen to them they should make as much noise as possible and try to fight off their attacker, unless they have a weapon.

Be careful around water

Every year there are many incidents of children drowning. To help our children it is important that they firstly learn to swim, but also that you teach them the importance of keeping safe around water. Swimming at the beach or in rivers presents many hazards as there are a lot of unknown factors, like the force of the tides and rips at the beach and underwater hazards in rivers, like tree branches and rocks. Teach your children that diving into water that they don't know the depth of is extremely dangerous. Also always make sure they swim between the flags at the beach. When they are swimming in a pool they still need to be careful, knowing not to dive into the shallow end or run around the edges in case they slip.

Fire

Have a plan in place in case there is a fire in your home and have your family practice what you would do. Teach your children to get down and crawl to safety, as dangerous smoke and fumes rise, and if they need to go through a door to check to see if it's hot first in case there is a fire on the other side. Show them where you will assemble outside, preferably on the footpath on the other side of the room. Tell them they are to get themselves out and not worry about any belongings or pets.

Poisons

When your children are very young you need to lock up any dangerous or poisonous substances, but later once your children are old enough you need to explain that they can't play with chemicals or hazardous materials. It is a good idea to have a list of phone numbers stuck on the fridge, including all the correct emergency numbers.

The Moon, Blue Sky and Lyric

This blue moon was captured on Sunday, June 12th. Seeing its beauty makes me remember this song. I captured the moon in the front of my BIL's house.

Blue Moon
Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald
Blue moon, you saw me standin' alone

Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin' a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold
Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold
Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers

The Toys to Suit the Kids’ Perennial Problem

Every parent, aunt, uncle and family friend knows the problem- The right toys! What toys can you get that won’t bore the kids, will keep them happy, and maybe (gasp) help their learning. The problem is that that’s not always the problem. Kids are highly social, and it’s not always just their own interest that’s involved. Their friends will get in on the act, too.

The trick is to find something that’s truly new, as well as interesting and fun. Very young kids will get interested in anything, as everyone knows, but a little later on they’ll also be interested in exploring. This is where more complex toys meet more complex needs, and it’s a good way to really find out which toys are really wanted and “socially acceptable”.

Toys are more than toys
Some toys are prestige things for kids. The well known demand for a toy like another kid has, for instance, is a real social issue. Toys have status. Even the most tactful child, confronted with a toy which is too passé for their age, will cringe at the sight of these things. The highly valued toys are a combination of the crowd pleasers and the child’s own special interests. Any parent having a really bright, intelligent child will recognize the issues- What’s the best choice for the extremely important personal interests, and what are the socially good toys?

As a matter of fact, toys are still toys in some ways, as long as they fit the bill. A toy like a basketball or anything very active and play-based is always appreciated, by everyone. Anything from a dinosaur to a remote controlled toy will get a lot of interest, too. The trick is to get the information you need to find the cool toys and avoid the uncool toys.

The quick way to find the right toy- Be sneaky!
Fortunately for parents, there are a lot of options available, particularly if you check out the huge ranges of
online toys. Here you can find anything from toddler toys to the very high quality National Geographic toys for ages 6 and upwards. The good news is that you can get a lot of attention when you’ve got something on a screen to show your kids, and some comments.

You can ask with that convincing parental innocence/ ignorance which is so useful at times what something is when you “accidentally” bump into it. You’ll probably get a lecture, but you’ll also definitely get a good idea of what’s interesting and what’s not, instantly. If you get almost total silence and fascination, you’ve hit the jackpot. If you get a sort of grown up kid response, you’ve found a lemon.

If you’ve got a kid with real internet savvy, a quick check of the bookmarks will tell the tale about what’s cool pretty effectively. Another good trick is to follow the big name brands in the areas of interest. These are a very good guide to prices and quality.

When you get the right toy, you’ll know.

Getting Best Reporting Software

Have you ever heard of reporting software? Believe me; this software will help you a lot!

I really crave – of all things – reporting software. (And yeah, friends say I require escaping from the basement more.) Because at my last company, we applied the "market leader" in reporting and business intelligence. It sucked. It was dreary (individually formatted fields?! c'mon) and I kept getting annoyed by colleagues with question after question after question.

Big appreciation to Santosh, my new superior who gave me the authority to test and eventually select reporting and document generation software for our company. There are a few items I'm seeking for. It must be able to work with XML reports AND SQL reports. Our data is all over the place, but mostly SQL databases and XML files. We're not about to misuse time transferring everything into one data storage space format although we try to avoid Excel data and reports.

Our company has lots of diverse programmers, so it also has to handle Java reports, .net reports, C# reports, visual basic reports, and C++ reports. And it would be great if it could generate Python reports, PHP reports and Ruby reports. (Not to sound too greedy, but that's my desire list. We have a cool new programmer who keeps bugging me about ruby on rails reports. Let me discover something so I can leave a bunch of this work on someone else.)

I'm in the process of demoing Windward Reports and so far it's WAY enhanced than what I was used to. They have a discussion about their reporting software and business intelligence and say they can be used for java reports, dotnet reports and csharp reports. In our primary test it has held everything we've thrown at it.

It's quick and tough. It didn't take long to propose my first report. (in fact, I asked one of the HR people to design a template – she designed it in about 20 minutes. I just had to tweak the data tags.) And it looks like they're about to begin software that is programming language agnostic. But we haven't searched everything Windward is supposed to be able to do. And don't get me started on Excel reports...

Do you have experience with Windward's reporting software or business intelligence stuff? Let me know – particularly if you believe it sucks as much as the "rhymes with pistol" software. I don't wish for the headaches for a second time.

A Safe Toy

For Ruby Tuesday, I share here an Ultraman toy which belongs to my nephew, Fatih, 6 years old. I think it can be a good example of safe and fun toy. This Ultraman is unbreakable and very flexible; you can create various interesting poses, hehehe.
If you’re looking for safe toys for your kids, here are the shopping tips :

Under 3 years old
Kids under 3 have a tendency to put everything in their mouths. Avoid buying toys for older children which may have little pieces that pose a choking danger.
Never let children of any age play with broken balloons because of the choking danger.
Avoid marbles, balls, and games with balls that have a diameter of 1.75 inches or less. These products also pose a choking hazard to young children.
Children at this age still like pulling and twisting toys. Find toys that are well-made with strongly secured eyes, noses and other parts.
Avoid toys that have sharp edges and points.

Ages 3 through 5
Avoid toys that are made from thin, brittle plastic that might easily break into small pieces or leave rough edges.
Look for household art materials, including crayons and paint sets, marked with the designation "ASTM D-4236." This means the product has been reviewed by a toxicologist and, if necessary, labeled with warning information.
Teach older children to keep their toys away from their younger brothers and sisters.

Ages 6 through 12
For all children, adults should check toys periodically for fracture and potential hazards. Damaged or dangerous toys should be repaired or thrown away.
If buying a toy gun, be sure the barrel, or the entire gun, is brightly colored so that it's not mistaken for a real gun.
If you buy a bicycle for any age child, buy a helmet too, and make sure the child wears it.
Teach all children to put toys away when they're ended playing so they don't fall on them.

The Dangers of Botox: It is Not for Everyone



Botox injections are on the increase. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good. In Australia, there are a number of clinics in the capital cities offering this treatment. Botox is probably the most popular in Australia because it is the city where more people want to look good, and probably because it has the highest gay community in the country. Botox is not cheap, and if you are going to choose based on price, you are probably going to get a poor treatment. Here is a look at some of the preparation you should do yourself before you even consider getting it. There are a number of dangers, and it is not for everyone.

Avoid Alcohol. Avoiding alcohol for at least 2 weeks before you get the treatment is absolutely necessary. You should consult with your physician on what medications you are currently taking. It may be necessary for you to stop those medications for some amount of time before you can have the procedure. If you cannot stop those medications, you might not be able to have the procedure.

Botox is a Poison. It is important to understand that Botox itself is a poison. It is a protein produced by bacteria. Botox is actually a brand name, and it is produced by a number of pharmaceutical companies. You must discuss this with your physician.

Main Problems. The main problems seem to occur when the injected toxin starts to spread. There will be swelling and a certain amount of discomfort for a number of days after the procedure. It is important you do not massage the area where you received the injections. There are many reports of detailed cases where the toxin has spread to other parts of the body causing muscle weakness and even trouble with breathing.

Professionals Only. It is only those who are highly skilled in the administration of this treatment who can be trusted. Be wary of any clinic that is offering large discounts compared with normal prices. Remember, there has been a large increase in the number of clinics that offer this procedure because it is a real money maker.

Variety of Services. Botox injections are only one treatment, and should be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as, microdermabrasion – peeling of the skin. A professional clinic will have a full range of services and will not immediately offer you botox injections until they are satisfied that is what you need. Looking younger comes from living healthier. Changes in your lifestyle, what you eat, and how well you sleep, can all go a long way to making you look better.

Change of Lifestyle. If you are looking old for your age, it is probably a result of your lifestyle. A good physician will not be selling you on the benefits of botox injections without discussing your lifestyle and other treatments that may be appropriate for you. Lifestyle changes may be called for first.

If you are considering botox, understand it is a serious decision. Your lifestyle changes are what you should be thinking about first.
