He's in Trouble

I've been keeping an eye on the news about the Philippines and up to now it's still hard to believe on what had happened to my countrymen back in the Philippines especially those in the Visayas area. So sad.....

Anyway, heard on the news that Pacman, the famous fighter won again last weekend and the whole Philippines are rejoicing once again. However, the joy turned sour when the BIR or the internal revenue of the government is suing him for not paying his 2008 and 2009 income tax. Pacquiao is quick to reply and he said he paid at the IRS in the US and his camp said that he already sent a proof to BIR which BIR is not accepting bec. they are looking for an original copy of the tax filed. Oh I think he need to have a good accountant and lawyer like lawyers in north carolina that will take care of his lawsuits.

It's not easy being famous for all his moves and mistakes will be magnified 100 folds. yay.

How You Know When You Need Chimney Repair

Chimneys can play a vital role in keeping your home warm and cozy during the cold months of the year. In order to safely take advantage of your chimney, you need to make sure that it stays clean and in good repair. In NJ, chimney repair and cleaning can save you from the physical danger that can arise when chimneys are neglected. Here is some advice on how to properly take care of the chimney cleaning and repair.

Cleaning Your Chimney
Over time, chimneys build up soot and blockages of creosote, a highly flammable substance that reduces the effectiveness of a fireplace and increases the risk of a chimney fire. The buildup on chimney walls can make it so that fire smoke doesn’t properly filter out of your home. In order to avoid these kinds of negative consequences, you should have your chimney inspected once a year to determine if cleaning or repairing is necessary. Regular chimney cleaning is absolutely essential in removing buildup and soot on the chimney walls in order to allow for proper ventilation. If you use your fireplace on a regular, daily basis, then you will need to have regular, yearly cleanings to eliminate the risk of undiscovered defects in the chimney that can necessitate expensive and extensive repairs. The best time to have your chimney cleaned is during the off-season for your fireplace, so during the summer or early fall. Cleaning at these times will allow you to start the colder seasons with a clean chimney ready for regular use.

Determining If You Need Repairs
In NJ,chimney repair may become necessary for the proper functioning of your fireplace and chimney. The best way to determine if repairs are necessary is to have your chimney inspected. A professional inspector can best assess your ventilation system and advise you on where problems may exist and the best options for resolving those problems. Before you start lighting up your furnace in response to weather changes, you should have an inspection performed to assess your chimney’s condition and determine if you need to have your chimney cleaned or if there are ventilation issues necessitating repair.

Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) Hits Philippines

I was deeply sad when I heard from news that a super typhoon hits my homeland on Nov. 8, 2013. Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) devastated parts of the Visayas and the destruction is so massive and unthinkable.

I'm so relieved that my family back home is not affected by this destructive typhoon because our province is in Luzon and very far from the path of Yolanda. It's so heartbreaking to see that my countrymen suffered a lot for they lost almost everything from them. Thousands have died and many are still hungry.

It's good to know that a lot of people are reaching out to help even other countries like Australia, US, UK, Japan and more have sent their aid to the Philippines and will help rebuild the devastated community in the Visayas.

I am praying that people will slowly rebuild their lives back again but I know it will take a lot of time to heal their wounds and suffering but there is hope.

Shopping.... Shopping...

I've been feeling excited these past few because of our upcoming overseas vacation back home. Only 1 more month and we're going and I'm yet to finish some more stuff before I can rest. It's tiring but I'm very much excited as well as the kids. I have scoured the shops to find nice gifts for my nieces and nephews plus my siblings and all of my family. I even had the chance to browse american audio dj gear at musicians friend with the hopes of finding a gift for my nephew who'm I heard loves music so much that he planned to take up conservatory of mysic in the univ. this coming June 2014. Wow, I'm amazed as I have no inclination that he'd go that path. I'm not sure if he'd change his mind.. we'll see...

I have sent a box full of goodies already just in time for Christmas and I hope that it will arrive early December. I still need to go to the shops for more shopping as I still need to cross out all the items on my shopping list.

My sister back home is also so excited to see us especially the kids because it was in 2010 when she saw them. I'm sure my kids will have a blast once again in PI. yay!
