American Tourister's Quality Style

One of the names associated with reliable, practical travel must-haves is undoubtedly American Tourister. Since the brand was founded in 1933 by Sol Koffler, it has grown in its commitment to sell durable yet affordable luggage. With the acquisition by Samsonite in 1994, the company continues to produce a wide selection of quality travel gear.

The luggage from the Vivolite collection is made from ultra-lightweight material infused in a sturdy outer shell. The bright colors and the glossy finish on the shells are made possible by PressPro, an innovative technology crafted by American Tourister. The hardy yet light pieces of luggage absorb shock better than most hard cases in the market. They can withstand rough handling when checked in at the airport or when shoved into the trunk of a vehicle. Other features of the this collection are recessed Transportation Security Administration (TSA) combination lock, four recessed spinner wheels for easy maneuvering push-button trolley, and soft-grip handles.

The collection is available in purple, hot pink, navy, and lemon. The purple and hot pink shells come with a bright pink lining while the navy and lemon shells come with an aqua blue lining. The bright colors are not only cool but also convenient. It is easy to spot your suitcase among other pieces if it comes in these attractive colors.

I am Planning to Visit Manila Again.

A few months ago, I went to Manila for I have something to fix about the insurance claims, condo rental, and some other important things. The embassy is in Paseo de Roxas corner Ayala Avenue, while the condominium is in Chino Roces, both in Makati. When I was done at the embassy, I had a chance to walk around and took some photos. Actually, Ayala, Makati was my sanctuary when I was still living in Manila. This was the place that I run from office to office almost everyday, from Monday to Friday. As I was looking at the people walking around, I could tell, there was no change at all. People were always on the run. No one walked like walking under the moonlight. They were in a hurry and probably doesn't like to be late from their works or appointment. When I took a bus ride going to MOA (Mall Of Asia) for I had a meeting with one of my friends here in the blogosphere, the bus I have ridden was full of passengers, but at least, it was an air-conditioned bus. Now, I am planning to visit Manila again next month.

Living in Manila is far different from living here in Davao. The cost of living in Manila is high, while Davao, even if the salary is smaller compared in Manila, but at least the food here is much cheaper than in Manila.

How Moms Can Expand Their Social Circles

When you're a mom, it can be easy to feel as if your social circle consists of no one beyond your kids and family members. Since being a mom can take up so much of your time, you might not feel like you have time to expand your social circle. However, busy moms deserve to have an enriching social circle just as much as, if not more than, anyone else. Here are some tips on how busy moms can expand their social circles and make new friends.

Join Mom Groups

There are plenty of groups out there for moms who want to get together and chat about their families and lives. Some of these groups even encourage you to bring your kids along, eliminating the need to get a babysitter. You can find ads for these groups on social media or in the classifieds section of your local newspaper.

Join Groups At Your Church

Your church or place of worship can be a fabulous way to make new friends and get involved in new activities. For example, you can join a womens Christian ministry if you're looking to meet other women and get involved in activities that will help your congregation and community.

Get Involved At Your Kids' School

Getting involved at your kids' school isn't just a great way to be an active parent. It's also a great way to meet other moms and make new friends. Many of the mothers who get involved with their kids' classrooms are also looking to expand their social circles and make new friends as well.

Catch Up With Old Friends On Social Media

Sometimes you already know the new friends that you're looking for. It's a great idea to use social media to catch up with old friends who might now be moms themselves. These women might be looking to get more social and reconnect with old pals as well.

Moms deserve a social life and friends who they can chat with. If you follow these tips, you can expand your social circle and make some rewarding friendships. It might take a bit of effort, but the results will be totally worthwhile.

Perfect Getaway For Family and Friends

I was so envy when my friends told me that they were scheduled to go to Hannah's Beach Resort. I already have heard about this place because another friend of ours is living in Ilocos Norte until now. It was not a pleasure trip actually, because they are working in a barangay in Manila, and they were having a convention. However, they can have fun after the convention. And so, these were the photos they took after the 3-day convention at this beautiful mountain, breathtaking views of the sea, plus the sight of windmills. I wish one day I can also visit this place.

I like this wooden cottage.

I am not sure if this was copied in a movie or just the wild imagination of the one who made it. What do you think?

Oops, I know this one, but the one sitting behind my friend, the one sitting on the bench caught my attention. Who do you think was this man?

I like this one, so cute. Alvin and the Chipmunks.

If you haven't seen the biggest pot, visit this resort. Ha ha.

I hope you enjoy the photos I shared. There is actually fun here in the Philippines.
