When to Hire A Plumber?

Have you ever asked yourself, when is the right time to hire plumbers? Most of us tend to hire a plumber whenever a worst plumbing issue strikes. We usually get their service when our toilet started to clogged or whenever the kitchen sink is blocked. We have to keep in mind that checking the plumbing system is more like a part of home improvement and house maintenance. We should not wait for a clogged toilet or a blocked kitchen sink before calling them. We should let them check our plumbing system from time to time even we're not experiencing any issues with it. It is not a matter of wasting your money but a matter of being practical. You're just trying to avoid any major plumbing issues in the near future that will definitely cost you big time.
You also have to consider hiring a professional plumber. Some of them might deceived you with their cheap offers. If you're going to hire plumbers then much better better if you get recommendations from your relatives or friends to ensure the quality of their service.
You can check plumbers online too. Read some reliable company reviews to guide you in choosing the right plumber to hire.
The plumber's professionalism and their skills should be your top priority.
Well, if you're looking for a professional Plumber Portland Services, then Sarkinen Plumbing is the right company for you. They got the highest quality of plumbing service in Oregon. You can check their site at http://www.sarkinenplumbing.com/ and see how you can avail their five star service.

Philippine Sports

I'm really not a sporty guy around here but i love watching sports live on TV. Unfortunately, here in our country, we do not pay more attention to other interesting sports. Basketball is obviously the most famous sports here. I remember when i was in high school, i went to different "try outs" and "dry run", desperately hoping that they can include me in our school's official varsity but everything turned out as failures. LOL. Maybe, sports is not really meant for me so i just satisfied myself by watching them live or watching them on tv.
It is very nice to see that Filipinos are opening their doors now to some new field of sports including football and hockey.
The Philippine National Football Team or much better known as Team Azkals made Football more popular here in our country after winning several international matches. Since then, a lot of Football training school were opened, aiming to teach kids how to play Football properly and effectively. I have heard that the Team is currently undergoing series of practices in preparation for their upcoming match.
Even though we are on a tropical country, it is pretty amazing that we have fellow Filipinos who still excel on extreme sports like Ice Hockey, snow boarding and Ice Skating. Even though we do not have Snow here and we do not have wide space for their training, they are still being recognized in this kind of sports. As a matter of fact, our country was chosen to host the first ever Asia Pacific Hockey Summit. That's why here's our fellow Filipino Hockey players, seriously practicing in preparation for the upcoming event
Being into extreme sports is a great experience indeed but you also have to consider your safety. Safety should always come first. Remember what happened to Natasha Richardson last 2009? She died because of Head injury after she fell during a skiing lesson in Quebec. It was said that actress is not wearing any helmet which probably put her into danger.
Just like what i said, Safety should always comes first so if ever you will put yourself into an extreme sport like this, better wear safety gears to protect you from any harm. It doesn't mean that if you're wearing a knee pad, it is okay not wear a shoulder pad or a helmet while practicing. You should wear them all completely because you do not know where or when the accident will occur.
You also have to consider the brand of your sports gear. The quality is really important here and take note that your life might be at risk if you chose to use a cheap brand. Better use a well trusted sportswear like DaKine for example. DaKine is a well known brand specializing in sportswear. Their backpacks are quite popular too so as the very stylish Dakine Snow Gloves. Their Dakine Beanies are very fashionable too which comes up with different color, styles and design.

And Here's What You Missed on Glee...

Attention my fellow Gleeks! We are just few weeks away from the much awaited third season of Glee. As a certified Gleek, i am really excited about this and I wonder how much this upcoming season will differ from the two previous ones. The previous season was truly amazing, there are so much drama and revelation from our beloved characters. Oh and what made me so hooked with Glee Season 2 is the special participation of our very own Charice who portrayed the role of the Filipino Exchange student named Sunshine Corazon. If in case you failed to watch the previous season, here's what you missed on Glee (lol)
Sunshine Corazon - Yay! Charice made her first appearance on the pilot episode of the season. Sunshine and Rachel Berry sang their duet version of Lady Gaga's Telephone.
Britney Made an Appearance! - Yes! The queen of pop music made an appearance here which made Brittany's character more noticeable. Since then, Heather Morris became one of the most likable Glee Cast member!
Star studded! - The season 2 is indeed a star-studded season. Aside from Britney Spears, other stars who made guess appearance on the show are Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth, Charice, Kathy Griffin, Loretta Devine and more.
New Members - The season also introduced new members including Lauren Zizes, Sam Evans and also Blaine Anderson.
So Much Drama and Revelations!- The season showed a lot of Drama and emphasized some of the characters personal issues including Sue Sylbester and the death of her sister Jean, Karofsky's true personality behind his very aggressive attitude, the feelings of Santana to Brittany and a whole lot more.
They said that the upcoming season will not be as star studded as the previous one because Ryan Murphy wants to focus more on the storyline which means we have to expect more drama and serious acting from our favorite cast members. They will minimize the number of performance per episode too and the worst, few of our favorite characters will leave the show because they will graduate from high school.
Anyway, I'm excited to see the two additional New Direction members. Probably the winners of the recently held Glee Project. Anyway, I'm sure the upcoming season has a lot of things to offer.
For the mean time, while waiting for Glee season 3 why not watch their 3D concert. It's now showing right? Or better yet, if you missed some of their previous episode, this is the right time to catch up. After all, there's really nothing to worry about it since we can now watch tv online free. Yup! That's what i usually do when I'm at the office since we do not have TV inside and I don't think we're allowed to watch while we're at work haha but i swill manage to watch my favorite tv series using my office computer. You guys can check watchtvonlinefree.net. There are 500 + free tv channels online here and most of all, it's Safe and Legal. Actually even when i'm at home, i still prefer watching my favorite tv programs online because aside from saving electricity, i can also do my work at the same time. You can also watch those previously aired tv episodes too.

Marriage and Divorce

Divorce has always been a controversial topic especially here in my country because it is not yet widely accepted here but in countries most especially in western regions like US, divorce is like a normal legal thing to do for a couple who decided to end their relationship as husband and wife. I'm sure you guys are aware about it since we usually hear those celebrity couples on the news and headlines who went down to divorcing their marriage.
Marriage is such a sacred ceremony that will bond the two of you. It is a decision that you have to think more than twice and something that should not be done overnight. The reason why you get married is because you think that you have found the right girl or the right guy for you. Maybe you realized that you are really compatible to each other and he or she is the right person that you can be with forever.
However, we cannot deny the fact, that each couple will come to a point that they will both encounter issues. Something more like a challenge that both of them should surpass. But if the issue wen worst, this is where the divorce comes in.
Take note that divorce is a life changing decision and it's more likely the counter part of marriage. If ever you decided to divorce your partner, then make sure you deal with a well trusted attorney that will give you a service similar to that divorce attorney phoenix in Arizona. This is a legal action and better choose your attorney wisely for faster and cleaner service.

Being Independent and Responsible

If you guys are usually depending upon your maids, well, that's not exactly our case. Well, in fairness to our mom, she taught us how to become responsible by teaching us how to do certain house chores. From the very simple floor sweeping down to washing our own clothes and dishes. According to her, this would be a great start in case we're planning to live separately from her in which we know will eventually happened soon as we build out own family.
Funny but it goes like this, my mom will usually set a schedule or a date for each of us. She will also give us our own area of responsibility. Like for example, i am in charge with the living room while my sister is in charge with the kitchen. And since I'm the eldest guy, i get most of the hardest house chores including the most stressful Carpet cleaning. We had huge carpet in the living room and our vacuum cleaner was not working properly and there were times that i have to remove the dirt manually.
Anyway, things weren't like before before because I became much busy in both my school and work. Being a working student killed most of my time and I can hardly find opportunity to do those normal house chores again. It was my sister who took my place and since she will graduate soon in high school, she will be very busy preparing for her college so we might consider taking cleaning service like that Carpet Portland Cleaning service offered in Oregon.
This will help us to save our time.

Mobile Software Development

I'm not a gadget enthusiast and I'm not a techie at all. Both my pc and cellphone are quite outdated already but it doesn't really matter to me since i'm after their functions and not with their style. But there were times that i felt like i want to follow the latest trend by buying the latest mobile unit. I was just pretty amazed that you can do a lot of stuffs using a single tool most especially those phone that are capable of wireless internet connection. Not to mention their cool applications that are undeniably useful.
These mobile software development is so fascinating indeed yet they are quite complicated for a non techie guy like me . But of course, i know I can get used to it very soon.
I'm really eager to learn and exploring new things is not a bad idea at all. Actually, i was just navigating the the web last night when i discovered SIGMA, a site of professionals whose expertise are about software programs ranging from PHP down to Flash and JAVA. Well as a blogger for 4 years, these terms are not so jargon to me anymore but their quite complicated somehow so i guess I better leave it to my techie friend.
SIGMA by the way is known for their tremendous job when it comes to the so called Custom Development Software. As far as I remember, when i was working in my previous company, we make use of Custom Software in our office and it really made our work a lot easier.
If you're interested about their service, you better check them at their official web page at http://sigmaukraine.com and see what else the site has to offer for you.

Car and Weather ~ Full of Attitude

Car is more like the weather, it has full of attitude hahaha. Funny but it's true! Sometimes it runs smoothly giving us the best driving experience but sometimes it gives us headache, causing us so much trouble.
Actually, there were times that you can't even figure out what exactly causing the issue. It is really important to know the real and root cause of the problem so that you can prevent the same scenario in the near future.
Since I have mentioned something about the diagnostics, I think Chaz Auto have done a tremendous job in this kind of field. They are located in Oregon and is known for providing the best and the most high tech Auto Repair service. They use the so called Computer Diagnostics which can diagnose the issue much faster and more accurate.
With this latest technology, i guess that's right enough reason to trust their service.
They have been in the industry for quite a long time too and the shop is being patronized by many costumers already.
Car and Weather are indeed full of attitude but hey! Aren't we? Well women usually does, i don't know about some men hehehe

Clueless and Hopeless About Car Troubleshooting

Do you think it is really necessary to know the basic car troubleshooting? Way back 2007, i decided to take a technical training course about Computer technician in which i learned so much things and i learned how to fix the computer myself. There's actually a course there about Automotive but i refused to take it since i don't have a car back then. I am really not an expert when it comes to car. All i know is i need that car so that i will no longer have to commute and pay for the transportation expenses. But then i know i should, somehow, know how to fix the basic issues myself.
Just like what happened last week, i had series of issues about my car's Brake pad. I know that this is an issue that should not be ignored since brake is probably the most important parts along with the engine and exhaust system.It may put me in trouble if i live the issue as is. And I' so clueless about it.
Well, i know i can always bring my car into an auto repair shop most especially to something reputable like that Auto Body Repair Portland in Oregon.
But having at least a brief knowledge about car troubleshooting is somehow a big advantage don't you think?
How about you? Do you know how to fix your own car? What is the worst case that you ever solved alone? Don't forget to share your experience.

Choosing the Right Material

When it comes to finishing material especially for your kitchen countertops, you really have to choose carefully and wisely. There are so many materials to choose from, ranging from the cheapest brand to the most expensive material. If you're thinking of buying a cheaper brand for the sake of saving your money, then better think twice because it might cost you big time in the near future. Cheap materials are not as good as its price, the quality might be very questionable and probably just a waste of money and time.
I remember we had this Ceramic tile finishing and my mom thought that she's very lucky to find a shop that offers the cheapest tile in our place. Being deceived by its price, mom decided to install the material which caused us a lot of trouble. Well first, I'm nothing against the material, Ceramic is great and it's really appealing but it all depends on it's quality and it's not as durable as the others. And so after few months, we started to see some cracks and broken tiles. It was like, whenever a strong force was applied, it will break easily. Ceramic was too brittle, giving my mom no choice but to ask for another renovation.
Well, that gave us a lesson that we have to choose the right material and we have to choose the right place to buy.
I wish we have FLOFORM here. They are located in Washington and they are known for providing the best countertops spokane in Washington. If you live near that place, then better check their site to see how to can reach their service. Visit them at http://www.floform.com

Organizing an Event

Have you ever been in an expo or exhibit? Well, I was especially during my high school days when we used to have science fair. I was once an event organizer so, somehow, i know the drill and I know how stressing it was to organize such events. There are just too many things to consider here and we have to plan every single details just to assure that the event will be held successfully.
Since I have mentioned the details, the first thing that we have to consider here is the location. We have to think of a venue that will be wide enough to accommodate all the exhibitors and the visitors.
I'm not really sure with the other event organizers, but we are also the one to provide the trade show booths. This is where they advertise their products so we have to hire someone to make the booths more appealing and to attract more visitors as well. Well, it seems that organizing events or science fair is not really my forte that's why i never take it seriously.
It's pretty amazing to know that we now have portable display booths which can also be purchased online. They are highly customized and they all look pretty amazing.
If you guys are interested, you might want to check http://www.exhibeportable.com/ and see what else they have to offer. From banner stands to trade show table covers, they got them all for you.
Have you tried organizing an event too? How was it? Share us your experience.

Experience Lake Oswego

Lucky you if you're in Oregon and looking for a perfect Golf Courses Portland to play with. I'm sure you guys have heard about Lake Oswego, the city own golf course with a beautiful and well maintained environment which is obviously one of the main reasons why the place is being patronized by so many golfers in Oregon.
You might consider Golf as one of those Not so challenging sports out there but golfing is actually a perfect activity to test your mental ability and how great you are in strategizing your game. Well, yes, it may not be as physically challenging like basketball or football but if you compare it to other mental games like chess, well, Golf is absolutely more exciting and enjoying to play with.
Anyway, back to Lake Oswego Public Golf Course and Practice Range, I was just navigating their site last night and guys, they got some cool cheap deals here.
The rates were as low as $11 and you can also call them for reservations. You can call them at 503-636-8228 if we wish for reservation and if you want to know more details about their place.
If you guys interested to know more about Lake Oswego Public Golf Course, you can visit their site at http://www.lakeoswegogolf.org. I have heard that they are offering some cool discount packages and blowout specials too. They also organize open tournaments which is more exciting right?
I wonder if there are training courses for beginners too.

GMA Network Dominates The National Tv Ratings (2nd Semester of 2011)

Below is the Press Statement Released by GMA Network (Source: Pep.ph)
"GMA Network, Inc. (GMA) made a strong start this second semester of 2011 as it posted solid margins on national television ratings, as validated by broadcast industry's most trusted ratings service provider, Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.
"According to full July household data (July 24 to 31 based on overnight ratings) in National Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM), GMA posted a total day average audience share of 34.2 points, 2.8 points ahead of ABS-CBN's 31.4; and 18.8 points higher than TV5's 15.4.
"Based on an estimated five viewers per household, the gaps translate to almost 500,000 more viewers from all over the country who favored GMA over ABS-CBN; and 3.5 million viewers who watched GMA instead of TV5.
"In the list of overall top 30 programs less specials, during the period, GMA outnumbered ABS-CBN with 16 entries. GMA was noticeably strong in the afternoon block (from 12nn to 6pm) as it won by double-digits over competitors ABS-CBN and TV5.
"In Urban Luzon, which comprises 77 percent of total television households nationwide, GMA also posted double-digit margins versus ABS-CBN and TV5 in household audience shares. GMA was 11.3 points ahead of ABS-CBN with 37.9 points versus 26.6 points. GMA was likewise ahead of TV5's 16.7 points at a larger margin of 21.2 points.
"The lead means 1.6 million more viewers in the area preferred GMA over ABS-CBN; and 3.1 million more viewers favored GMA over TV5.
"In viewer-rich Mega Manila, which makes up 58 percent of total television households nationwide, GMA scored 38.6 share points, 13.2 points ahead in this bailiwick as compared to ABS-CBN's 25.4; and 21.3 points away from TV5's 17.3 points. The figures translate to GMA having 1.5 million more viewers over ABS-CBN; and 2.4 million more viewers over TV5.
"There were 20 GMA programs in the list of overall top 30 programs less specials in Urban Luzon; while 21 GMA programs made it to the same list in Mega Manila. In the top 10 roster, GMA almost made a clean sweep with nine entries in Mega Manila, and seven in Urban Luzon.
"Amaya, Munting Heredera, and Eat Bulaga were the top three programs in both areas. Other GMA programs that made it to the top 10 lists in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila include Captain Barbell, 24 Oras, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, and Kap's Amazing Stories.
"Manny Pacquiao's Manny Many Prizes also made a hit debut last July 16 as it surpassed ABS-CBN's TV Patrol Weekend and Wansapanataym in Mega Manila weekend primetime ratings.
"Richard Gutierrez's Captain Barbell made a heroic bow during its last episode on July 29 as it beat ABS-CBN's top primetime contender 100 Days To Heaven, which is now up against Marian Rivera's epicserye Amaya, in Mega Manila and Urban Luzon.
"Nielsen translates one rating point in NUTAM to 90,890 households and 421,530 viewers. In Urban Luzon, one rating point equals 69,700 households and 320,350 individuals; while in Mega Manila, one rating point is equivalent to 52,470 households and 239,070 individuals.

Plugging to the Wrong Power Outlets

Have you ever experience plugging a 220 Volt device into a 110 Volt and vice versa? Well, i did and it happen to me several time already. Okay, I know i am such a clumsy , careless and useless boy here and i used to commit such mistakes. As a matter of fact, mom used to put tags in each electrical appliances that we have in our house just to help me identify which is a 220 volt device and which is a 110 volt device and also to avoid possible short circuit. She labeled the outlets too haha.
Plugging a 220 volt device to a 110 volt outlet will not affect your device obviously before the source is not enough to make the appliance work but if you plug a 110 Volt device into 220 volt outlet, then there's a bigger tendency to have a short circuit, damaging both your device and the entire electricity system around your house as well.
If that's the case, then you need to contact both a Technician and an Electrician to fix them for you. You need to bring your damaged device to a technician to fix it and you need to consult an Electrician to fix the damaged electrical system (most likely, they will replace the fuse).
Don't dare fix it yourself because it's too dangerous. Remember that you're dealing with electrical wiring here and there's a live electricity flowing to them so better leave it to the experts.

Save The Environment , Save the World

Come on, let's open our mind now. Global financial crisis is not just the topic that we should be taking care of. Just look around you, see how our planet gasping for breath right now, see how polluted our environment is, this is a serious matter and something that we should not be ignoring about. We were already threatened by the the incident happened in Japan and we should be expecting more scenarios like this if we continuously ignore this issue. It's time for us to move, to take some actions and to pay more attention on how to save our environment. Joining an advocacy campaign that promotes ecological consciousness and environment sensitivity would be a great start but remember that these campaigns are intended only to give us awareness. Saving the environment is more than just being a part of an advocacy campaign or participating in a Run-for-a-cause events. Take note that saving the environment is a continuous process and if you really want to change our world for good, then start doing it all by yourself in your own simple yet very special way. Blaming it to the government is just a waste of time because if you're going to analyze everything, we , humans, in general is the major cause of all these environmental issues.
Just think of
the global warming, the climate change, acid rain, drought, flash floods and other forms of natural catastrophes, aren't they enough to tell us that we should do our best to help our suffering mother nature. Of course you can't do that alone but you can start changing in your own simple way.
► It might be tough but volunteering your self into a environmental awareness campaign is such a good act. It won't cost you anything but your time. Most of these organizations are relying on volunteers for marketing, organization and labor efforts so please do take a part.
► Always practice the so called "RRR" or reduce, reuse, recycle. It plays a vital role in conserving energy and preserving the mother earth.
► Purchase only things that we only need and eat only what you can. Or maybe, you support those eco-friendly products. Items that will bring no harm to our environment. We should be very grateful that there were such institutions like the Korea Environmental Technology and Industry Institute (KEITI). I found their Youtube video here.

KEITI is the founder of their so called "ECOTRADE", a Premier Environmental B2B Marketplace aiming to improve the quality of life by promoting those eco friendly products.
ECOTRADE Premier Environmental B2B Marketplace
Through this marketplace, you'll have the chance to Find Korea's latest environmental products and technology. Actually, i was just navigating their site awhile ago and i was pretty amazed by their products. It is so nice that there is such institute raising awareness about environment and promoting nothing but eco-friendly products.
Here's a snapshot of their product's category. Look how amazing they are.
See? From Water treatment to waste management, they got them all for the sake of saving our environment. This is something that we should be very proud of and a campaign that we should be supporting about.
Support ECOTRADE by following them on their Facebook Fanpage and also through their official YouTube Channel
So what else can we do to help our mother nature? Plant trees? Minimizing the usage of products with CFC? Guys, there are so many ways out there and all we have to do is to open our minds. That's all what it takes towards a healthy and green world.

Coin Collector

He was a seaman before, giving him a chance to travel to different countries which also give him a chance to use different kind of money. From pounds, dollars , to yen, he got them in his collection though they are not that old and value of each coins he has right now are not that high except for his 1949 peso coin. That's the oldest coin he has in his collection and I don't think his willing to sell it to others because the coin has a sentimental value for him.

Spending Holiday

Time really run out so fast. It's already August, the last one before the "ber" months arrive. Oh and that means,Christmas is about to come and I hope you guys will have a great holiday. I' sure most of you are planning to spend this holiday with your family while others are with their lovers. I'm not a hopeless romantic guy but spending your Holiday with your girlfriend is quite an ideal date don't you think? What? You don't have a girl friend yet? Well , So am I LOL.
But that doesn't mean that we will have the loneliest Christmas right? If in case you are aiming for a date, why don't you try those dating websites. They are quite in demand you know! Well, it's not a desperate act from us and besides, it's a perfect opportunity to meet someone online and to know if you are compatible or not.
But of course, don't invite her to meet up that fast. This is the advantage of dating websites, they will give you a chance to know more about each other and then if you are both comfortable to each other and you feel like she's the right one, then you can set a date to meet her in person (to know too if she's faking her profile picture or not). Dating website is just a great start before you enter any serious relationship.
Come on! It's just August and there are so many months to come before December but you have to move now (i mean WE have to move now hahaha), start registering an account and who knows, maybe your date or your future wife is just waiting for you out there. Good luck to all of us!
