A WEDDING TO REMEMBER FOREVER

WEDDINGVENUE

Some time back last year, I received a registered mail addressed to my name. Upon opening up the mail, I saw a nicely designed wedding invitation card of Joe and Jenny. Finally, those two had decided to tie the knot after being engaged for two years. Time really flew very fast. At that moment, I thought it was another of those hotel receptions where buffet was served towards the end of the couple’s declaration. I was in for a surprise when I saw the venue on the card, “pack your best dress/suit and two days of luggage, you’d be driven to a private reception.” What? I have always known them as an outgoing and adventurous couple but this was something I had not expected from them. I loved surprises and this was one wedding that I would surely not miss out.

On that appointed date, I got my friend to drop me off at Joe’s house. Upon arriving, there was already a big crowd on the charted double decked bus. Sam was there, so were practically the whole university mates of ours. It was like another reunion for us. We departed from Columbia and headed for Duck Village along the southern shores of North Carolina. The sceneries throughout the journey were something I would not forget for ages. We were brought to an oceanfront palatial estate, Royal Caribbean II, a one of a kind luxurious, accommodation in an exclusive community setting. Everyone was dumbfounded by the beauty of the whole setting. There were 8 master suites with private baths, exquisite great room and regal grand dining with unprecedented ocean views on top of all the state-of-the art gadgets scattered all around the abode. There were also rooms for electronic games, billiard tables, ping pong tables and wide screen theatre setting, not forgetting a bunch of outdoor sports you can play with.

Wow! I was as if in my own dream home. I could not resist being pampered in the pool with built-in hot tub, stone fireplace while being blown away with the soothing pool side music. Being the non-traditionalists, I would not have expected that I would be so privileged to be invited to such an exclusive vacation with the wedding couple. It was one of the most comfortable and laid-back weddings I had ever attended. The wedding ceremony was simple but filled with lots of meanings for the couple as they had us, their families and friends, to be there, to appreciate the relationships we had throughout our knowing of each other, and to acknowledge their happiness as a truly wedded couple. There no denying that they had made a right choice by engaging an all inclusive wedding packages that not only would remain in their memories for a lifetime but ours as well.

I GOT COMPLAINED FOR BEING TOO FAT

BULGINGTUMMY

Being born in a state famous for its great food does have a side effect on me. Somehow, I lacked the discipline to control my food intake. Who could have resisted all the delicious food around each loops and corners of the streets? No matter where I go, I would surely have something in my hands and busily biting or munching away. Now all my friends are beginning to take note of the big bulge from my tummy. Even my Mom has been complaining, “Hey! You better get rid of that big tummy of yours or you will be having lots of health issues later.”

That statement got me worried as I indeed had some health issues now. I would easily get tired and sleepy even during day time. Frequent chest pains and backaches might be some symptoms to watch out for. If I don’t take care of my weight now, it might lead to other major disease such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, sleep apnea, cancer, constipation, dyslipidaemia, osteoarthritis and many other scientific names that scared the hell out of me.

I did try to get some exercises but eventually the moods and motivation to maintain dies off as fast as it started. There are so many brands of diet pills from all over the world lying on my table now but none gave me the results as I would have expected them to do so. I really need some top diet pills that really work right now. It’s time I should get my health back to the tip top condition it once used to be.

QUEUING UP AT A PAYING COUNTER WITH EASE

PAYCOUNTER

Tap… tap… tap… tap… tap… ka… chink… Can you still remember how dreadful it was to go groceries shopping during peak periods in the old days? Those were the sound of the old cash register being manned by a weary looking cashier. I can imagine the stress the cashier would be in each day, having to manually key in the price of each items, especially those with huge purchases. It might be quite a norm then but still most customers do not have the patience to be caught in tens of minutes of long queues.

Today, with the foresight of good customer relationship companies, more counters are being opened up to ease the queues. Moreover, barcodes are so widely used on all products now to lessen the input time. All the cashier need is a POSGUYS to send the data into the system to be computed on the receipt with the total amount needed to pay. It’s as simple as that.

With the advancement of technology, more people would have saved up a great deal of time. Thus, life can be less stressful. More time can be spent with your loved ones to nurture a closer relationship.

ARE YOU A SOCIAL GAMER?

SOCIALGAMING

With so many social networks available through the internet nowadays, you can practically find a steadily increase in the number of social games almost in any site you pop in. Social games are becoming a key aspect in people’s lives. About 60% of the social network users had at least got themselves involved in a social game, with more than two thirds started at the beginning of last year. Most of the social gamers were introduced through the mode of heavily promoted advertisements within the social networks, followed by a substantial numbers being drawn in by their social network friends.

From a survey, it was learned that two thirds of the social gamers play at least 2-3 games per week. One third of them play at least a game daily with a quarter of them logging into their game account several times daily. Surprisingly, those golden aged group surpassed the teen and middle aged group in social gaming. I guessed they have more time in hand after retiring from their jobs. Amongst those social gamers, 70% of them are playing for fun or to kill time, 25% of them play to compete with friends while one fifth plays to relieve stress.

From the current trend of social gamers, it looks as if social games would be here for a long time since there’s a significant growth in the computer games development market within these few short years. This is becoming a reality as no matter where you go, whether in subways, colleges, offices or homes, you can easily spot people playing social games on their laptop computers, tablets or mobiles.

GETTING OLD CAN BE EXPENSIVE WITH NO HELP AROUND

BSNONLINE

As time passes by swiftly by the winks of many blinks, you can actually feel that the body clock is deteriorating much faster than ever each day. Physically and mentally, you would get more illness cruelly hitting hard on you. Your senses would begin to show signs of failing. Your medical bills would hit high on the ceiling. If you are rich, these problems would not be a problem at all as you can seek many alternatives with your richness. The worst scenario would be to be sent to the Home for the Aged to settle all your “inconveniences” by just paying a lump sum of money. Thus, there’s the lack of personal contact with the ones who had undyingly loved you from the start of your birth into the world. All they would get would be a few hours daily of visit from their personal helper.

Unfortunately, a large number of the elderly would not fall into this category of the rich and famous. They have to spend their lifetime earnings to fend for themselves. Medications, supplements, vitamins or even frequent visits to the doctors are not costing any much lesser nowadays. The amount spent in keeping the body in the best of health can be quite a surprise. How great it would be if any member of the family is in the nursing line. He or she could at least have the necessary experiences in caring and nursing any elderly members in the family within the best of their knowledge.

As a Registered Nurse (RN), one would provide scientific, psychological, and technological knowledge in the care of patients and/or families in many health care settings. It would even be better if one were to possess a B.Sc (Nursing) which could easily be achieved through any of the bsn online programs available out there. Don’t you think that it would be so ideal to have someone so qualified who has gone through bsn online around to empathize along with you through old age?
