Wine and Chocolate – good for the heart?

Studies have shown that people who drink moderate of alcohol have little chance of getting the risk of heart disease than non drinkers plus drinking red wine offer health benefits too. It contains a compound flavonoids and resveratrol which helps to limit atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Drinking alcohol –red wine included- one to two drinks per day increases good HDL cholesterol* by about 12%. Moderate drinking of alcohol may also reduce the risk of blood clots. The American Heart Association urges moderation in alcohol consumption no more than two drinks per day for men and one for women. If you’re not a fan of alcohol or red wine it’s good to start now, drinking is a preventive measure if you have no other options.

Dark chocolate and cocoa are rich in flavonoids (antioxidant). Research suggests that eating flavonoid-rich chocolate keep the blood vessels healthier by improving its ability to expand. Eating high-flavonoid dark chocolate daily helps high blood pressure patients lower their blood pressure. Keep in mind that eating chocolate in moderation is fine and be aware that various chocolate products also differ in terms of flavonoid levels so it’s not a guarantee you’ll get the right amount of health benefits you need. On the other hand, eating too much chocolate is not good for a heart-healthy diet since the extra calories can lead to weight gain.  

A Royal Love Story

William and Kate were meant to be one of the most awaited unions of the 21st century. Prince William who would someday be crowned king of England and the stunning Kate who won the prince heart. What a royal love story indeed. 

I thought that this kind of love story would happen only on films, but you know it can happen to real life and Kate is really blessed. The ordinary girl and the soon to be king defied all the odds despite of all the controversies and struggles. 

Their royal relationship remained notably in silence; the bestselling author Christopher Andersen reveals all the intimate details of their courtship which involves all the scandals, tragedies happened throughout their decade romance. The book takes account of the Queens plans for Prince William and Kate which will transform the face of the monarchy. 

I Am Number Four



I am Number Four is a story about an extraordinary teen John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Olyphant). John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events-his first love (Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.

I hate to admit it but I'm really looking forward to this movie. This film is based on the New York Times best -selling book by Pittacus Lore. It was a book again haha! The plot is really catchy as well as the title - don't you agree?. Anyway, I'm crossing my fingers that the DVD  will be out soon since I can't watch it in cinemas. How sad is that. 

Somewhere Only We Know

I heard this song from the movie He's Just Not that Into You, I began to like it and now it's on my playlist. I want to post it here so just bear with me.

Keane - Somewhere Only We Know


Can we go to the place somewhere only we know?





I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?


Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go? So why don't we go?

Oh, this could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

 A comedy about taking it one step at a time

Life as we know it, yes of course we know life, it has ups and downs, highs and lows and yeah that’s the way the cookie crumbles. Two unlike poles became an instant parent, Holly (Katherine Heigl) and Eric (Josh Duhamel) are not on the same wavelength, and yeah I mean they tried to date but it didn’t happen, it didn’t work out the way they expected it to be. 


After their best friends died on a car accident they took responsibility of their 1 year old daughter Sophie – well actually they didn’t have a choice it was a will of guardianship which Sophie’s parents planned just in case. 

Well the story goes like they live on the same house together, took good care of the baby, changing the diapers and some parenting stuffs. Actually, the ending is predictable – haha! But you know I like Katherine so much, she’s stunning really and Josh is a charmer.


THE VERY GREEDY CATERPILLAR


T-shirt is my default garment at home or when I attend casual events. I appreciate shirts with some cutie designs – oh I’m in-love! It’s a medium to express oneself. While browsing though I come across Art T-Shirts - Thanks to my friend Shenani for sharing the link and oh they have a contest. I love it 8GB IPod Touch + Tilteed T-Shirts! I hope I’ll win this; it’ll be hitting two birds in one stone! Yehay! While browsing through their catalog I was surprise, I love all the shirt designs, you have no idea I have hard time choosing a shirt, they’re all awe-inspiring. Kudos to the designers, I wish I can design one shirt too ^^. 

Well after much deliberation I chose the THE VERY GREEDY CATERPILLAR - designed by Craig Watkins –two thumbs up!  There is something on this one; I love the illustration, the character of the caterpillar as a whole with different expressions on its anatomy.

I so love the color!

the caterpillar anatomy ^^


Oh! I want one. I hope I could buy one. Weee... I hope I win the contest ^^


Personality Test

“Personality has the power to open many doors, but character must keep them open”


Hi, are you searching for free personality test? I know there's a bunch of personality test on the web world but just try this iPersonic personality test developed by the Psychologist Felicitas Heyne. Felicitas Heyne, a well-known psychologist and a best-selling book-author. I tried it of course, it's really amazing.  Below is the result.


Social Realists are popular persons full of energy. They are reliable, well organized and helpful. Traditional values are important to them. Founding a family also plays a central role in their life. Social Realists have a marked social streak. They are always ready to listen to the worries and problems of others and spare no effort when they are asked for help. With empathy and understanding, they can sense what other people need.

Social Realists are always willing to highly regard the strong points of the other person and to excuse that person’s weaknesses. They
are the most sociable of all personality types. Social contacts are very important to them.

Social Realists find it very difficult to cope with conflicts and criticism - harmony is their elixir of life. Acknowledgment and esteem are very important to this type. Differentiation on the other hand is not necessarily one of their strong points. At work and in partnerships, they are loyal, committed and always there when needed. They find it easy to make friends due to their open, warm manner and they have a large circle of friends. In love, they are faithful and attentive and care for their partners with a great deal of imagination and sensitivity. Social Realists show their feelings openly and honestly. Should a relationship break up, they tend to blame themselves. That is why they find it very difficult to end a partnership even if it has not fulfilled their requirements for some time.

Social Realists are more conservative types. They have a set system of values and rules which is orientated to the prevailing traditions. They prefer clear, structured surroundings and work processes; they find too much change and unrest unpleasant. Their strong points are carefulness and reliability and not so much flexibility and spontaneity. Social Realists are open-minded towards anything new only to a limited extent. But, should one be looking for someone to fulfill a task reliably and exactly, they are the right persons.
Adjectives which describe your type: extroverted, practical, sentimental, planning, emotional, temperamental, energetic, tradition-conscious, loyal, helpful, devoted, reliable, caring, objective, thorough, organized, warm-hearted, open, friendly, sociable, chummy, obliging, self-sacrificing, public-spirited, sensitive, kind, demanding

Celebrating ♥'s Day @ Mooon Cafe

Happy Hearts Day to all! Personally, ehemm. I want to thank those people who took their time and effort in writing a valentine message on that very cute heart card today at the office. Thanks a lot Janice, Sheena, Evava and Kenny and to those who greeted me and responded to my greetings. Today is the day and they say Feb is lovers month - well you know actually why? Valentines Day is a Monday here in Philippines and most of the people hates monday but since it's V-DAY, then it's gonna be an exception. haha! I spend my V-DAY with my office friends. yehay! I have a boypran but he's not around so I spend time with them :)

I had fun today, thank you again for the chance of spending this special day with you guys, sorry for late upload in FB but better late than never - hehe.

Celebrate Valentines Day in a romantic and unique way, but what's more important is that you have to express it sincerely. Celebrate the spirit of love everyday!

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. Henry Van Dyke 

Are you a Professional?

I went to the Personality Development Training which was held on the roof-top’s office. yay! I learned a lot of things and I enjoyed the make up session since I'm not a fan of make up and stuff. I thought a lot of things, in order to develop more my skills. I think I have to work on my time management to reach my goals one at a time.

One topic is about professionalism, well I thought, I knew the true meaning of it, I was totally wrong. After graduating from college, I didn't even consider myself a professional. I have no idea why, because I think you will be called such if you have obtained a Bachelor Degree of bla bla and so on. Well, I chose a 3 year course back in college. I am aware that this is just a vocational course. But the truth is - it was a very long history (it breaks my heart when I remember).

Fortunately, blessing in disguise, that's how I label my course to conquer the negativity I felt during those times. I had a clear criticism during the assessment, and I was so frustrated and I felt like I am going to cry in front of the professor, you have no idea how I managed not to do that - oh it was so difficult. My mother was there and I need someone to pat me on the back, but sadly that does not happen. I am fully aware that it is not my mother’s fault, so I still give her credit for being there for me. That was one of the saddest moments of my life.

Romance for 2011

Below are romantic movies for 2011. I’m busy updating some movies and I wanna share some interesting romance movies this year. I saw the previews and read the plot, actually previews are very attention-grabbing. 


NO STRINGS ATTACHED

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher stars No Strings Attached directed by Ivan Reitman. 

Emma (Portman) and Adam (Kutcher) are longtime friends and decided to be FWBs, friends with benefits – in short sex friends, yay! Hmm, I think the two can’t handle the demands of a steady relationship. They try to keep their relationship physical yet no emotional attached to it. But they’ll realize soon that they need more than that.



FROM PRADA TO NADA

Two attractive latina sisters have been left flat broke after their father’s death due to heart attack. 

From riches to rags, they have no choice but to move with their aunt who resides in LA. Neither of the two is entirely happy with their new environment – both does not know how to speak Spanish – but the movie is full English, no worries. Good natured cast with some latino twist. This is nice, saw the trailer too.


JUST GO WITH IT

Another Adam Sandler rom-com movie with Jennifer Aniston. I'm a fan of Adam Sandler, he's such a witty guy. Danny (Adam Sandler) falls inlove with Palmer (Brooklyn Decker) who is much younger than him. He believes that Palmer is the girl of his dreams.

He will do anything just to win her heart - aww, just like 50 first date, but the twist is that he needs help from a Katherine (Jennifer Aniston), his assistant and his 2 lovely kids. 



RED RIDING HOOD

Amanda Seyfried plays Valerie, a girl who falls inlove with an orphaned woodcutter. 
Her family objects to the idea of such. The movie is directed by Catherine Hardwicke, the director of Twilight. I think, this is like part drama, part romance and part thrill, but the wiki says it was horror. 
This is produced by Leonardo De Caprio. A must see film, I'm looking forward to this movie. 


BEASTLY

Beastly is a modern story of " Beauty and the Beast" - yes, we all know the tale.
Alex Pettyfer will play as Kyle, a young handsome, wealthy and very arrogant man. He was put under a spell that transforms him into an ugly creature. Only true love will break him away from that spell.
The preview has some amazing yet terrifying special effects. To conclude this will bring plenty of life lessons, as it is.

The Lucky One

Yes! Done reading this one. Oh Mr. Sparks, you have no idea how much I worship all your books. 

The Lucky One is a story about true love, destiny and forgiveness. Logan Thibault a US Marine finds a photograph of a smiling girl half buried in the dirt while he was in Iraq, he saw the message at the back of the photo saying "Keep Safe" E!.

He tried to find the owner of the photo but nobody claimed it. He finds himself keeping the photo in his pocket. The Lucky lady in the photo suddenly brings luck to Logan - winning poker games and even surviving some deadly battles, where his two closest friend died.

His friend Victor told him that the lady in the photo is the one responsible bringing him sudden change of fate, that the photo is his Lucky charm. He doesn't believe at first, he thought it was ridiculous to look for a woman in the photo. He doesn't even know where to start. But when Victor died in an accident, Logan started seeing his ghost. 

So he started his journey to find the woman and just looking at the picture he founds some clues, it was something to start.

From Colorado he sets out his journey across the country and finally his feet brought him in Hampton, North Carolina. He finally meets Elizabeth - the girl in the picture. Of course, he finds Beth very attractive. Elizabeth is a divorced mother with a young son - Ben. Beth ex husband Keith Clayton won't allow Beth to be happy with other man. 

Just to make the story short, Logan and Beth started going steady on their relationship. Logan on the other hand keeps the picture and the story a secret to Beth. Until one day, Beth discovers the truth.

Keeping secrets this thing will ruin such relationship. It's important to be honest with your partner. Practice the art of listening and let bygones be bygones. This is what I learned from this book.

Trust me, the ending is just right.It was a happy ending :)
