Receipt Printer

My parents business is banana trading. They've been in this business for almost two decades. I am very proud of them because they have manage to keep the business for so long. They were able to send us to a decent school and provide the stuff that we needed. Every summer I helped them managing the business and I was a cashier. It was very frustrating because I have to tally manually the receipts, and my mom is still doing it until now. I am thinking that I should get them an epson receipt printer. I am sure my mom will be delighted to use this receipt printer.

Hyundai Sonata

Are you thinking of purchasing a new vehicle? You should checkout a hyundai sonata. This vehicle is a four-door sedan and is built by one of South Korea’s largest automakers. This vehicle was initially a compact Korean-only car, but now Sonata sedans are built in a factory outside of Montgomery Alabama to be sold in the United States. These vehicles were first sold in 1989 as a four-cylinder, but six-cylinder vehicles became available a short time later. This vehicle spawned other vehicles such as the Hyundai Sante Fe and the Kia Optima. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is the latest model and has a bigger cabin and qualifies as a large car. Only the Honda Accord meets the same standards. They are in the process of designing a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid to be due in 2012. This new vehicle is being developed with lithium-polymer batteries which will complement the four-cylinder engine. A mechanically similar 2011 Kia Optima is also in the development. So what are you waiting for? If you are thinking of purchasing a new car, you need to read some of the reviews concerning the Hyundai Sonata. You can also review many other vehicles as well before making your next purchase.

Mommy Moments: Field Trip

It's Mommy Moments once again! This weeks theme is "Field Trip/s". Akesha is not in daycare nor in preschool. And that means she has never been to a class/field trip before. Am sure she will someday.

Since Akesha doesn't have any field trip moments, I am going to share some of my field trip getaways when I was in college.
A week before our graduation my friends and I went to Bukidnon to visit Del Monte Philippines.
Here are some photos of us at the ferry going to Cebu.
We stayed at Cebu Midtown Hotel for a week.
We visited some companies and we were able to explore some famous spots in Cebu, Philippines. It was a trip of a lifetime....lol!

Mechanical Breakdown Insurance

If you are tired of those high auto repair costs, you should think about getting some mechanical breakdown insurance. A manufacturer’s warranty offers coverage, but with different expiration dates. Good Sam’s plan eliminates this problem. You can now have coverage for your transmission, suspension, engine and even your drive axle. You have 30 days to cancel your coverage if you decide that this plan isn’t for you. If you want to see how much you can save on repairs, you can look on their website to see a comparison. So if you want reliable coverage to cover some of those expensive auto repairs, you should consider getting mechanical breakdown insurance.

Gyeonghoeru Pavilion

King Taejo, founder of the Joseon kingdom and builder of Gyeongbokgung palace, had this pavilion erected in this man-made lake in the western section of the palace. He named it Gyeonghoeru, or pavilion of Joyous Meeting. It is now the largest elevated pavilion in Korea.
I wonder how this pond looks like when it's not icy.
Gyeonghoeru Pavilion, is a hall used to hold important and special state banquets during the Joseon Dynasty. It is an important national landmark registered as Korea's National Treasure No. 224 on January 8, 1985.

The first Gyeonghoeru was constructed in 1412, the 12th year of the reign of King Taejong, but was burned down during the Japanese invasions of Korea in 1592. The present building was constructed in 1867 (the 4th year of the reign of King Gojong) on an island of an artificial, rectangular lake that is 128 m wide and 113 m across.

Constructed mainly of wood and stone, Gyeonghoeru has a form where the wooden structure of the building sits on top of 48 massive stone pillars, with the wooden stairs connecting the second floor to the first floor. The outer perimeters of Gyeonghoeru are supported by square pillars while the inner columns are cylindrical; they were placed thus to represent the idea of Yin & Yang. When Gyeonghoeru was originally built in 1412, these stone pillars were decorated with sculptures depicting dragons rising to the sky, but these details were not reproduced when the building was rebuilt in the 19th century. Three stone bridges connect the building to the palace grounds, and corners of the balustrades around the island are decorated with sculptures of the twelve Zodiac animals.

Watch TV Anywhere in the World!

Have you ever heard of slingbox? A slingbox is TV streaming device that enables users to remotely view their home's cable, satellite, or personal video recorder programming from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection. Slingbox allows you to watch TV with a full screen and either have the remote on the screen, or not. Slingbox allows you to hit a button and it will automatically dock to one side of the screen and re-adjust the size of your other windows. And then, you can even fine tune and adjust the size of that window. You can also create a list of favorite channel icons, so all you do is click onto your favorite channel's icon. If the icon doesn't exist - you can create your own. How cool is that? We might get a slingbox someday.

Every year they giveaway some items to their customers like printed shirts, calendars, and other goods. This year they are planning to add some items on the list, and they asked me if I can give some suggestions. So I told them that they should include business cards.

One of the famous spots we visited in South Korea is Gyeongbokgung Palace. According to Wikipedia, Gyeongbokgung, also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, is a royal palace located in northern Seoul, South Korea. First constructed in 1394 and reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. The name of the palace, "Gyeongbokgung," translates in English as "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven."
Heavily destroyed by the Japanese government in the early 20th century, the palace complex is slowly being restored to its original form prior the destruction. As of 2009, roughly 40 percent of the original number of palace buildings still stand or are being reconstructed.

Traditional Tol Celebration

How's your weekend people?! It is Monday once again! Wohooo! So here's my entry for Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday, and Ruby Tuesday this week. Photos were taken when we visited the National Folk Museum of Korea (02/01/10).
In the past, due to a lack of medical information, Korea's seasonal temperature differences, and many childhood related diseases, the death rate for children was extremely high. Many children died before their first birthday. After the age of one year, the survival rate steeply increased, making this milestone a very happy one for the child's parents. It has also been a custom to celebrate a child's 100 day birthday (baek-il) , but in most areas this birthday is less important than the Tol and any celebrations are smaller in scale.

Tol has two meanings in Korean. The most common meaning is a child's first birthday. It can also be used as a generic description for birthdays: Chut-tol (first birthday), Du-tol (second birthday), Seo-tol (third birthday), etc.

In this event, the birthday child goes around the table and picks up items that attract him or her. The child's future is predicted according to the what he or she grabs. After placing the child in front of the table, the child's father becomes the guide for the child to go around the table and grab whatever he or she wants. The first and second items the child grabs are considered the most important. Usually Korean parents place the items that they want the child to choose near to the edge of the table. The child's future is predicted according to the items:

-bow and arrow: the child will become a warrior
-needle and thread: the child will live long
-jujube: the child will have many descendants
-book, pencil, or related items: the child will become a successful scholar
-rice or rice cake: the child will become rich (some resources say choosing a rice cake means the child is not smart)
-ruler, needle, scissors: the child will be talented with his/her hands
-knife: the child will be a good cook

Monday Meme

Here's my Blue Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday entry this week. Yesterday, we went to the hospital to visit my FIL. My SIL rushed him to the ER a couple of days ago because he has trouble breathing. The doctor find out that he has pneumonia. The whole family are worried on his condition, but he looks like he is doing good. We were able to talk to him yesterday and he even ask where's Akesha. Kids are not allowed to enter the ICU. So, Akesha and the rest of her cousins stayed in the lobby for awhile. BTW, my FIL will turn 90 year-old this year. Get well soon DAD!
Here's hubby and Akesha running....:)

Cheap Promotional Bags

My parents business is banana trading. They have been very successful on managing this kind of business for almost 2 decades. One thing that my family has been doing through the years to make their customers happy is by giving them shirts, calendars and gift packs. I am thinking that next year they should get some promotional bags instead. Promotional bags are affordable and durable. It is a great idea, easy and effective way to get the business logo noticed.

This is what our first aid cabinet looks like. Accidents can happen to anyone almost anywhere. It is important that every home, and especially those with children, have a first aid kit on hand in case of accidental injuries.
