Too Many to Remember

Oh it must have been some time since I last logged in here to write. I guess I've been to preoccupied with work and there has been days when I just couldn't be bothered to log in. I really need to write down in a little notebook my usernames, passwords for my various accounts online. Since the inception of PCs and technology, seems that our mind is always making a little room for log in names, passwords, for our internet accounts, bank atms, purchase id codes and even more. With emails, facebook, msn, yahoo, photobucket, blogs, there are too many to keep remembering and I get so confused! Anyone has this problem?

Some accounts let us use just alphabetical letters, some requires numerics, some mix, some we need to remember our usernames, passwords... bla bla the list goes on..

My hubby's pc has a finger print scanner but he says it's troublesome.. even startups for handphones can be prompted with passwords! oooooooooo

UK Clothing Online

Many men I know would escape shopping with their partners. They want shopping but they also want to shop instead of hanging around in stores full of women's clothing and carrying their girlfriends hand bags..

Some of these men, wait for their other half to shop for them. Many of my friends make shopping trips all the way to the UK to get brands that are popular like Jack & Jones and French Connection because it is hard to get these in Asia such as Hong Kong and Australia. That can be rather expensive, flying halfway across the globe shopping. It is not too hard to get trendy and high fashion brands online at all.

You can buy cool tops like my partner's favourite Fenchurch from Divine Trash. So for the men, you don't have to get your partners to buy you clothes all the time. Shop them online anytime when you are at home or in the office. Surprise your girlfriends with something nice too. Divine Trash carries men and women's clothing at very reasonable price.

The recent news about the 22 men who were charged over child pornography was deserving. Investigation on these Australians showed these men sharing images over the internet. They contained some of the worst images and as many as 500,000 images of child abuse and 15,000 videos have been seized. It was terrible when some of the pictures showed the victims that were as young as 12 months old!

According to the Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Gaughan, there will be more arrests to be expected this week. For possessing child abuse material, charges could result in a 10 year prison sentence. These information and investigation is the great teamwork of international policing network Interpol.

Great work fellas!


Parents worry about their children who live away from home when they are being sent to further their education. It is far and they are alone to fend for themselves. I've heard of how some students pay through their nose for a reasonable apartment that is safe and furnished with the basic needs. In UK, Pickard is a respectable student accommodation in leeds that had been voted No. 1 Landlord for its excellent reputation and for providing the needs of local and foreign students. This survey is being ranked by students who have completed the Leeds University Union survey as an objective to recognize quality and genuine landlords and with 40 years of experience in letting good quality homes, Pickard took the No. 1 spot.


With the global economy downturn, many employees are now taking their chance to upgrade themselves. Some companies have seminars while some send their staff for short term course to uprade their skills. This should prove helpful so that when the economy and business picks up, one will be ready for a more competitive market and armed with more knowledge.

Education is highly stressed nowadays. It is an ongoing process and many of these who continue to pursue their education are not just youths but they form a large number of middle aged and those who already have families. Some of them include those who undergo a career change in their mid life while some is doing it for upgrading for betterment of their career.

I know of few good employers who sets aside a few jobs to help out those who may have some criminal records to help them get back into society and lead a normal life. Those who have been employed sometimes do not revealed everything about themselves for fear of being outcasted by those who work alongside with them. And there may be some who may have held some important information about their criminal history from employers. If you have doubts or would like to review more about any particular person, you can actually access records of prison inmates by using the Prison Inmate Locator. It is simple to use, just by keying in the name, approximate age and few other information to check on inmates' record.

Sometimes when I am busy with my household chores and cooking, the kids demand attention too. That create some havoc and madness at home. And when I am not, the kids are busy playing their Video Games without the slightest idea that I am around. The advantage is that, it leaves me some time to surf the net and do some bloghopping. On the net, you get so much information even right up to products, services or looking for the right spelling in a dictionary. Review King is one site that sets you up with the right information, honest reviews and just about anything you are looking for. Right now, I would be looking for ways on how to make money online.

I love pizzas. My kids do too. And each time I make a pizza, i have to use sundried tomatoes which makes the pizzas just so tasty. Unless I run out of it then I use the bottled tomato paste.

Have you tried making your own Sundried Tomatoes? Okay, firstly YES you can make your own Sundried Tomatoes, using a microwave oven. Also you can get them more instant than to sun it outdoors.

Here's what you need.

14 large tomatoes (ripe ones), Sometimes i get them cheaper because ripe ones are usually at sale price!
seasoning salt (lemon salt is nice)

Rinse the tomatoes, and cut them lengthwise. Scoop out the insides that has the seeds with a spoon. Season with salt. Microwave uncovered for 15 minutes.

Pour away the excess liquid and turn the tomatoes over, and microwave again for 15 mins.

Remove from microwave and let it cool for half hour. Store them immediately in a zip lock bag and chill in the fridge.

If you find it too troublesome to use the microwave, you can do the same with a convection oven too. Yields similar results.

I've been reading up on making cup cakes out of the ice cream cones. Here is a simple recipe that you can make using packaged cake mix. I intend to try it out using my own chocolate cake mix but if you are worried that it may be wasteful because the cone turns soggy, try the packaged mix until you are confident enough.

Here is what I usually do. I pre-filled the cone with just about half of the batter. This way, the cake mix is not overflowing when it rises when baked. If there are too much cake batter, it tends to leak during baking and cause your cones to be little soggy. Make your own chocolate mud cakes and fill 'em up with ice cream at the top.

Here is a simple recipe that you might like to try.

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (16 ounce) package vanilla frosting
1 ounce colored candy sprinkles

Prepare cake mix batter according to directions, or make any standard cake recipe batter (i.e. white, chocolate, etc.).
Place flat-bottomed ice cream cones in the cups of a regular muffin pan. Pour enough batter into each cone to fill from 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Bake at time and temperature as recommended for cupcakes. After they have cooled, frost with your favorite canned or home-prepared frosting recipe. Decorate with sprinkles or other decorations of your choice.
