Protect Your Baby's Future

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of CryoCell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever heard about stem cell blood cord preservation service? Stems cells that found in cord blood are known to treat over 75 diseases. Are you pregnant or you know someone is? If yes, you might want to know about the miraculous benefits of saving your child's cord blood.

U-Cord®, Cryo-Cell's stem cell cord blood preservation service is the ideal gift for family and friends who are expecting a baby in the near future and want to preserve vital stem cells that are collected from their baby's cord blood. Cryo-Cell is the industry-leading quality, impeccable client service, exclusive features and extraordinary value compares to other cord banks which are much higher-priced.

For women who are not pregnant, C'elle's groundbreaking technology enables women to collect and cryopreserve stem cells for potential cellular therapies that may emerge in the future. these stem cells may possibly be used as well in the future to benefit other family members who are genetically related to the donor, such as a parent, sibling or child to treat a number of possibly life-threatening diseases including diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Come to think about it, Cryo-Cell and C'elle are both very meaningful gifts to be given away to those who you care about. To know more about these service, you can read about the C'elle Client Testimonia.

Sweater for Baby Lily!

Baby Lily is finally here! and I knitted her a sweet baby sweater using Claudia hand painted fingering yarn. I was supposed to give this gift away at the baby shower party but I din't get to attend simply because I remember the time wrongly and I missed it! I was soo upset when I found out I was too late to be at the shower party.

Anyway, I still manage to give this gift to Diane before Lily is born. I can't wait to see this sweater on Lily and I know that will be soon enough! =D

Also, John and I are so honored to be asked to become Lily's godparents and we all will be attending her baptism some times around October.

Triangular Shawl
The first time I made a triangular shawl was few years back at Malaysia. It was a good knit and I always wanted to knit another one since then. Time flies and the second triangular shawl that I made was just few months back, which is the pretty design of my knitting buddy, LilyGo. Bella shawl is nice to knit and it just inspired me to design my own shawl.

The first one is always difficult but I would say, the outcome worths all the hardwork. After making Be.Leaf shawl, I came up with another shawl, which is the Taj-mahal. Making shawl is just fun and they make good accessories or gifts. I have bought so many sock yarn all these years and I am still going to buy more. Turning those beautiful yarn to shawl or scarf is just amazingly satisfying!!!

The third shawl design of mine is on the way and it is test knitted by some fantastic knitters at Ravelry. I guess I will release the pattern within a week of time. It is really exciting!

Weekend Getaway!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Geile Leon. All opinions are 100% mine.

Weather is getting cooler and I survive the summer in Texas. I just wish to go somewhere for a vacation with hubby before my mom's visit. A weekend getaway is just fine to us and Branson, Missouri is our top pick. Branson is magnificent interesting city that your whole family will find endless fun there.

There are many things you can do at Branson. Branson has lakes, museums, theme parks shopping and live entertainment theaters that you can easily reach from your hotel. You can't miss out the spectacular one-of-a-kind water fountain with a light and fire display choreographed to music in the town square. This is definitely a I want to see with John when we are there.

Branson is a city that I always want to visit. I am all ready for the outlet mall shoppings, Hollywood Wax Museum, the Polynesian Island Fire Show and the Cirque Montage. Too bad that John doesn't play golf anymore because there are two beautiful golf course in Branson. A weekend getaway is exactly what we are wanting. We plan to arrive at Branson at the Friday afternoon and spend two days there.

I want to visit to one of the nice restaurants in Branson for dinner and then visit to the town square to see the water fountain. I believe that will be very entertaining show that I cannot miss. Saturday will be my shopping day. I don't think John would like to join me so he will make his trip to the Hollywood Wax Museum. I am thinking to spend 6 hours to shop and we will go for the Polynesian Island Fire show at night. This is basically what we plan to do when we are at Branson but I know there might be some spontaneous changings when we find out more about Branson.

Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel are having summer package promotion. I like the location of these two hotels and I will have to pick one when we visit to Branson. With the exclusive Fall in The City Package, hotel room rates start at $309.50 per night, not only will you enjoy two-night deluxe accommodations, but you’ll also receive two tickets on the Showboat Branson Belle for dinner. Two adult tickets to Silver Dollar City are included with the package, and also the 50th Anniversary Silver Dollar City Souvenir Book and a $25 hotel food and beverage credit! Overall, it is definitely a wonderful deal for vacation!

Don't you need a weekend getaway with your love one in this Fall? Book your stay with Hilton Hotels now and enjoy yourself to the max in Branson!

Can You Cook ?

Master Chef is a new show that showed on FOX since 2 months ago. I love this show very much and I am soo happy with the result! I want Whitney to win! She might be the youngest competitors around but she totally deserve to be the first ever America Master chef.

I love to cook (but not to clean dishes) and I try to cook as often as possible. With the packed schedule nowadays, (I am helping out my friend in her restaurant for few months already) it is not easy to have time to cook dinner as frequent anymore.

Do you cook or can you cook? I know some women just don't find any chemistry between them and the kitchen. Neither cooking nor baking. I won't say I am a very good cook, but I know for sure my hubby is always my big fans! I guess that can be the good reason to keep me cooking more for him! =D
No Long-term Contract Please!!!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

I hear and feel about your dissatisfaction toward long-term contracts of cellphone mobile services. I am just like you who totally dislike this long-term contract idea. Most of them are two years contract, that means we can't drop or terminate the service without paying a HUGE termination fees. With the very limited prepaid plans on the market, I have stuck with my contract plan for more than 2 years.
Now, I just can't help spreading this good news to you all who hates mobile long-term contract. Boost Mobile is one of Sprint’s prepaid brands. It offers wireless phones and services with no long-term contracts. Boost Mobile redefines value for wireless consumers with its 'Monthly Unlimited' service, offering unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, email, IM and 411 for only $50 per month. $5o to be exact, no hidden fees, no roaming charges! Also, if you want to have international connection as well, you just have to pay additional $5! Isn't that a good plan?
You can easily pay your bills with few payment options. You can pay online, in person or even by phone. You also can sign up a account with Boost Mobile, and use its Re-Boost method to add funds to your account.
With this wonderful plan with Boost Mobile, you can update your Facebook and Twitter or some other social media from your phone. With just one price per month, you get to enjoy the unlimited connectivity to Facebook and Twitter.
You might be concerned about what kind of phone you could get from the plans with Boost Mobile. You should check out their Blackberry unlimited montly plan. Honestly, I am real tempted to get it for myself!
