No more exciting to watch

Now that the Olympics 2012 is finished ,, have to watch regular shows again ,, I quite enjoy watching the games, loving also that we have a Foxtel so we have 8 channels to choose from ,, sometimes I even record a game to watch later on , my husband enjoy watching the weight lifting ,, I in fact enjoyed the gymnastics and the equestrian ,, how majestic the y look and I gulped every time  a horse jumps on a hurdle ,,, just like the Royal Zara Philipps who competed in a Dressage portion,, so much fuss on her but she did really well ,, deserve to earn a Silver medal .., majestic horse and must be a fine english saddles .
It was enjoyable to watch the it ...

I laos loved the closing ceremony of the Olympics,, oh boy it was like the greatest show on earth ,, a great concert ,, with most of the singers and entertainers that really stunned the nation .

Now,, I think Im having an Olympics withdrawal syndrome .,,,  nothing interesting to watch ,, reality shows sucks ..... errr,,,

Need to renovate

We've been in our new house for more than a year now and I must say that there are still heaps of things to do at home, like painting the toilet ceiling , painting the doors , putting up curtains , finishing the shower door and lots and lots of work ...   I know I dont have to whinge because we live in anice place , nice view and quiet and we are comfortable at home ,, maybe thats why we cant be bothered finishing off the house ... But the more I watch renovation shows that more I get to see all the things that needed to be done here at home ...
Since the budget is tight at the moment , we have to do DIY jobs at home ,, last weekend we visited home stores  , its warming up here in Australia and the shops are getting busy with people eager to tackle work at home renovation ..  It is good to get some ideas and inspiration in that place ,,  so after the short visit ,, we went home and wrote down a list of things to do ,, and hopefully we can start doing number 1 list straight away ... Wish us luck!

What is Exactly Is Menopause? Things All Women Should Know

Everyone's probably heard of menopause, but what is it really? It is a natural event that begins once a woman's fertility and menstrual cycle end. It occurs when the ovaries are no long able to produce the two essential hormones of a woman's reproductive cycle, estrogen and progesterone.

When Do Women Typically Enter Menopause?
This event generally begins anywhere from the ages of 40 to 58, but the average age is about 51. Some women will begin this process early as their late 30s, or as late as their 60s. If, however, it does begin earlier in a woman who is younger than 35, this is condition is usually slapped with the title of premature menopause.

Though it typically occurs when a woman is in her middle age years, it can actually happen abruptly, as a result of certain situations, such as a surgical procedure, illness, or treatment of a disease.

What Are the Symptoms?
Most women will experience a variety of menopausal symptoms. The first of which occurs when a woman first enters menopause, in which her menstrual cycle will become very irregular. Then gasp! It just stops. Period. (Pardon the pun.) For some very lucky ladies, there will be no more symptoms. For the majority of women, though, they will experience frustrating symptoms, which are typically associated with reducing levels of estrogen.

Here is a list of typical menopausal symptoms:

  • Mood Swings
  • Reduced libido
  • Sweating
  • Hot Flashes
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Vaginal Discomfort

Stages of Menopause
Did you know there are actually stages? Well it's true, as menopause is actually a very gradual process. The events that occur upon a woman entering this new part of her life, will induce changes both socially and physically; however treatments for menopause will often cover all of the stages of menopause. Physically speaking, here are the four primary stages:

1. Premenopause: Some doctors and experts feel that this term should include the complete reproductive period, all the way up to the final stages of the menstrual cycle, while others consider this term to refer to a woman who is on the verge of becoming menopausal. By now, a woman's period has just started to become irregular, yet she does not experience any of the other menopausal signs, such as vaginal dryness and hot flashes. Typically, at this stage, she will be in her mid-to-late 40s or so. Assuming your doctor tells you that you're in this stage, go ahead ask how she or her uses this term.

2. Perimenopause: Perimenopause typically happens to women when they are about 47. This word refers to a woman who is in the transition phase between premenopause and menopause. By now, her cycles have gone from normal to irregular, and her body is now shifting from being to fertile to becoming permanently infertile.

3. Menopause: This is the biggie. As the process progresses, a woman in menopause is now in the area of her life in which her menstrual period permanently stops. However, it doesn't just happen at the snap of your fingers. Typically, you won't be able to know your exact final period. As such, a woman will know that she has had her final period, only when a whole year has gone by and she had not menstruated.

   *Note: Once you've had a year go by in which you are no longer menstruating due to menopause, any vaginal bleeding after this is considered to be abnormal. If this happens, contact your doctor for professional advice.

4. Postmenopausal: This term typically refers to the last third of a woman's life. It covers all women who have not menstruated for at least one year, up to a woman even older than 100 (presuming she lives that long) and beyond even that, up until death. Basically, once you're past your menopause stage, you will from then on, be referred to as postmenopausal for the remainder of your life.

We all know menopause doesn't sound fun in the least bit, and most women think of it as a some kind of taboo that will eventually take place. However, it is important to know that it is not an illness, a disease, or anything of the sort. That it is in fact, a natural and healthy time in a female's life – a stepping stone that every woman will have to go through one day.

Sinfagaore is such a beautiful country very clean and organized ,, we went to most of the tourist spots and we just had a ball ,,, it was a good break for me ,, enjoying every minute of it ,, although my phone bill soared HIGH !!!  I was almost in shock when my mobile service provider rung up to tell em my latest bill !!  GREAT ,, my days are ruined ,, cost me more than my trip !!!
Anyway ,,It was a nice holiday ,, as I got back here in Sydney ,, I was so conscious of things tobring ,, I did not go crazy  shopping , because I have a limited baggage allowance , I know how strict the Australian border security ,, I watch the show and I knwo what to expect ,, but on my way to getting my luggage I was checked by a staff,, cehcked my passpot and asked where I  been , then after picking up my kuggage I was led into the place where they search the bag ,  good thing I dont have anything suspicious like a Martor USA box cutter  or anything that can be considered illegal ,, actually I have a food in my bag but I declared it , unfortunately the delicious pork was seized and not allowed here ,,  now worries ,, just take it because I wanted to see my family ......

Things to do at Home

Its been a year since we moved in into our new house ,, its been such a long journey specially building and managing our own house ,, we opted to be a owner builder , instead of using a site builder ,it was hard doing it ourselves,, my hubby is very handy and quite good dealing with people ,, but there are things that are best left to the professionals ,, we saved  a lot of money  but if we have a choice we can do with a site builder  ,, but anyways ,,I love the house ,, there are things that we are not overly excited about ,, but its the way we live our lives ,, we love the vast space and the serenity of our surroundings ,, there are still 1001 things to do ,, we are just just waiting for funds and hopefully we can do and finish the house slowly but surely ...

Picture shown hubby organizing the backyard ,,,  big rocks being delivered so that we can do the retaining walls and finish the backyard with a grass.

Love the Bling

I love Bling !!!   these blings were given to me by my hubby,  set of earring for our Anniversary a few years back , then paired with a ring 2 years after ..  Diamonds are girls best friend ,, I definitely agree .
I love those diamond earrings for women and ususally wear them when Im out ,, not just for any special occasion but anywhere I go ,, I love to wear em and dont want them to be just kept away ,, hubby loves to see me wear  stuff that he gave me . 
Hopefully a nice necklace matching the earrings and the ring will be generously given to me ..  paging Hubby ,, its a hint ......

Fresh Water Pearls: A Must Have

Fresh water pearls seem to be on the top 20 most beautiful gems list for years! That is because they never go out of style. Everyone wants a set and everyone wants to follow the trends. So hurry and buy yours too. You won’t regret the decision. These gems offer powers as some would say such as love, power, and luck, then for children they offer safety and protection. Since they are gems that are created by a living organism they have imperfections, which is perfect for the newest trend. We see colored jeans around us and add a cute pearl piece of jewelry for 75% off retail prices and tell me that your outfit our not be completed for the spring/summer season.

A pearl set is truly the way to go! You can never go wrong with a bracelet, necklace, and matching earrings. For the prices of a set in retail would be outrageously expensive, however, eliminating the middle man and working directly with the designers creates more original pieces which are always my favorite. Sets can make a great gift to yourself or you coworker. The combination package is always the way to go with any deal like this!

Different stair railing

Stair railing comes in many different varieties. One of the most common commercial is made of metal railing. There are a few different commonly used metals everything from iron to wrought iron, and even stainless steel is used for different handrails. You can also go with a wooden handrail. Wood is good but if you have a spiral it is quite difficult because you have to use bender rail for it to make its way all the way down the stairs. The good thing about wood is that you will probably be working with wooden posts so you can pick the same exact species and that look really uniform and nice.

Besides railings you also should consider the different types of stair treads and risers. Most companies will sell these together. However it will depend on what you are trying to do. You can save money buy buying them separate if you don’t need them both to be too high quality. This means you can cover up your treads and risers with carpet and make the wood under them less expensive species. Just something nice and solid.

Designer platinum rings!

The most popular wedding bands are the dome or half round wedding bands. This isn’t what a lot of people want. They want a designer platinum ring. Designer rings are just like the name implies, a wedding band with a design. Often times there is a specific designer but also it could be the design. For example the Newport style is a designer ring that many different manufactures make. There are a lot of different designer rings. In fact there are hundreds of different designs. It is often hard to pick the best one but it is much better to have a choice.
Another type of cool wedding bands are palladium rings. Palladium is much like platinum. They are a very rare precious metal. The cost of the rings is heavily connected to the raw price of palladium. This means you could look at a ring and then go back 6 months later and the price will be much higher or lower. So if you are looking for a 6mm palladium ring you will want to look at the designer styles as well.
