Looking for Table Cloth

Its been sometime since I last posted here. Several events  happened during those times. Some were pleasant, others not! But all in all, it happened for a reason – good or bad but at least we are moving on – life after all has to move on!

Today is Saturday, hubby is traveling. Kids are out playing with their friends. And me, here in  this small corner tinkering the keyboard. So many things expired – during my absence online!  A lot of my blogs have expired!  Hosting – left unpaid! I guess it also happened for a reason!  I was actually planning for sometime to mellow down on my online presence.

Anyway, enough for my emo-talk. The house is in a mess and must be fixed asap!  Due to the recent typhoon – the roof needs to be fixed. There’s a water problem in the masters bedroom. I need to look for a good table cloth as the table top  now is showing its wear and tear. Though it still looks okay but a nice table cloth would be a bonus. Can you recommend a good website?

Responsible Driving: Preventing Traffic Accidents and Violations Effectively

So you recently bought a car from Carmudi PH, are you fit enough to drive? When you drive, you are not only responsible for your own person. You also carry with you the burden of keeping your passengers, pedestrians and other drivers safe from accidents. This is why it is very important to become not only an educated driver but also a responsible one. Knowing the do’s and don’ts may not be enough – you should also keep them at heart and practice them whenever you are out on the road.

Before hitting the road, plan your trip ahead of time. This is especially true for those who will be travelling long distances. Decide on your time of departure and the routes you will take to avoid heavy traffic areas and get on the expressway. While driving, do wear your seatbelts correctly – that over your shoulder and across your lap. Do not over-speed to avoid serious accidents. If you are driving long hours, stay focused and alert. If you feel tired or weary, find a gasoline station where you can rest for a while.

As a responsible driver, never drink and drive. Alcohol impairs a person’s senses and slows down reaction time and with new drink driving laws being introduced into the Philippines it is even more important to avoid alcohol behind the wheel. Don’t force yourself to drive when you are angry or tired. Take short breaks when you become tired so that you will feel better and more alert. While driving, avoid using your mobile phone, eating or drinking. Doing these will only distract you and make you more prone to accidents.

Another crucial trip to avoid accidents and getting into violations is to perform regular car maintenance. Here are a few tips to make sure your car performs in every situation. You should check the condition of your car before getting into it and driving. This way, you can discover any issues before you hit the road and avoid any serious issues when you are driving. Check your gas and make sure you have enough for your every trip. And of course, keep your car clean. You don’t necessarily need to get car wash services all the time, but you can clean your windshields, mirrors and your car interiors to keep them sanitary and on their top shape.
