Finding Her Way Around the Mall

My niece told me that she’s going to the mall to refresh as the temperature now is high enough to cook an egg so they say. Instead of resenting the hot weather she went to the mall to buy something and let the summer heat passed by. This is the very same reason that other people frequent mall areas and shopping complex. They can enjoy air conditioned place to stay, can avail of Wifi connection and at the same time do their shopping. The Wifi connection and cool temperature makes an inviting thought to anyone who has the time to relax and enjoy the day. Wish I can do the same.

My friend is a complete opposite of my nephew as she didn’t want to be at the mall when she’s alone. Why? Because she’s finding it hard to find her way out if she can’t find an exit sign. She has a story several years back of going to a mall which was newly renovated. As the ins and outs were changed it took her almost an hour before she found the nearest exit she needs. It was a hard but somewhat funny experience for her and until now we always laugh when we remember it. Well some people also experience this and can relate to my friend’s story but most will not admit it.

It was just lucky that there are entrance and exit signs to help people find their way around complicated malls especially if the signs are readable and attractive enough for people to see. Some signs I saw in the mall are not noticeable enough to some people so it’s best to put signs that will be noticed immediately. This way no one will experience being lost among the crowd on big shopping complex and other big establishments. It will also make us shopping more convenient.


No Internet Connection Since Last Night

I’m having difficulty again with my internet provider as since last night I don’t have connection even if I’m not using the router. For few weeks now I’m having intermittent connection every time I use our router and my connection becomes stable only when I hooked my PC direct to the modem. That’s very inconvenient for us because my kids and sister can’t go online.

Anyway this morning I got worried because even I did some troubleshooting and reconnection I can’t make any connection. Since I don’t want to rent to our neighboring internet cafĂ© I bought a prepaid kit from Smartbro and I was happy enough to meet my deadline and able to submit my due tasks. I’m just not comfortable with it because it’s slower than my regular broadband though they’re both Smartbro. Wish I can have my regular broadband connection again.


Inherited Flair for Cooking Holiday Recipes

I’m very fond of cooking and I can say that among my hobbies this one proved to be the most active hobby that I do everyday of my life. My parents came from families that are good in cooking. My Mom always tells me stories of her grandparents being invited to cook for special occasions like wedding and big gatherings. Just the same with my father’s side as his father is known to have a special talent in cooking and used to cook for his friends and relatives on weddings and special occasions.

I grew up seeing my school teacher Mom cook various original recipes for their school’s entry in cooking competition for original, most healthy and economical recipes. Most of the times they win using my Mom’s original recipes and she will teach me their winning entries. I was in my teens when I show my flair for cooking but it all started with desserts and Holiday Recipes because I love to help my Mom when I’m on school vacation. During holidays we tried several unique recipes and we’re happy to see the results from the satisfied visitors we have.

Now that my Mom is old I’m the one who primarily manage the kitchen and I was contented to have my Mom’s golden advices and tips in cooking. She taught me a lot in cooking and when they praise me for my delicious recipes I can only tell them that it’s from my Mom’s tips. Aside from that I also read books and from what I learned from the books I enhanced a bit to give my recipe a special touch. I’m planning to enroll in a baking class so I can be good not only on regular recipes but also on baked goodies just like my Mom who used to bake our birthday cakes. I thank God that I will be able to do this all because He has given me an opportunity to earn income at home. I just love being a work-at-home Mom.
