TOP 5 NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION FOR 2014

One of the most interesting stories and ideas about NEW YEAR is making a fruitful year ahead.
This is the spirit of New Year!

One of the top 5 New Year's resolution as listed:

1. Make more money for 2014 - Many of us usually wish for making more money this 2014.
This is common, businessmen also has a tradition for this. Chinese do have there own New Year Celebration. A lot of rituals and traditions are being presented on Chinese New Year. But to make more money needs more hard work, good strategies for the business. So your wish will come true if you work hard for it.

2. Be more loving and spiritual - It is important to be loving and drive you more closer to God for the coming Year to avoid any distractions and temptations in achieving one's goal.

3. To lose weight. - Due to the holidays and a lot of food on our table, we also forget to maintain our weight.  Getting fat is a big problem especially for ladies. This is important because body figure will also matter. You need to buy more clothes to blend with the occasion you will be attending. It is good to have enough weight for your age.

4. Success in career and good career path. Every man wish for this. Getting a good career in the near future is one way of achieving the number 1 New Year's resolution on the list above, because if you have  a good career, that means you are making a lot of money out from it.

5. Free mind and peace for the world. For this chaotic world, everyone wishes for a peaceful and fruitful world. That wars will be stopped, and that God will forbid us from any disaster or calamities.

Just saying what is in my New Year's Resolution List...Have you think of your resolutions for this Year 2014?  for updates, please follow me on twitter @homewebsitecent |guide to cebu| deals in Cebu| traveling tips|


"BEST FOOD TO WELCOME THE YEAR 2014"

Every Filipino home, celebrates the New Year's Eve which is a big celebration in the Family. 
I usually take charge of the Jingle portion, in which everyone has the 24 coins in the pocket. Once it is 12 midnight, everyone has to jump and say " HAPPY NEW YEAR". 

Aside from this, it is also a tradition to prepare food which is a good luck to welcome the New Year.

1. Pansit - This is believe to bring long life to every member of the family.
2. 12 round fruits - That every month, it is very fruitful through out the year or 12 months.
3. Lentils and Beans - It is customary to eat Lentils and Beans on New Year's eve to bring luck which symbolizes coins.
4. Round Cake - round cake symbolizes wholeness and completion of the whole year. 
5. Fish - symbolizes long and healthy life. 
6. Pork - many people eat this because this symbolizes high fat content which means wealth. Avoid chicken and poultry products, because chickens scratch backwards just to get food. 


Those are the food  usually prepared/eaten than bring luck to every Family on New Year's Eve.

Go shopping is the best way to motivate you to work, live life with inspiration from your love ones. Best way to maintain good relationship and good vibes, usually is to give gifts.

"New Year, Good Vibes, Welcome the New Year with a Bang!"

Let's count the days left for 2013. What have you done and what you did not do for the year 2013?
I am counting the days, and we have 2 days left to welcome the year 2014. I am grateful for the year 2013. 
Many things happened in my life, but there are negative but with overwhelming positive results for the year 2013. Have you take down notes for those achievements you have so far?

This is the time to thank for all the myriad blessings that were bestowed upon us. A year that we can say,
a year of hope, trials, but with Great Faith in Heaven. We too have beliefs and traditionally we serve food that will give us luck for welcoming the year. It is not by belief that you can achieve such wish, but you have to work for it.  Strive for the best, positive outlook and good vibes is the best way to achieve such wishes. 

Round fruits that will wish us Luck in welcoming the Year 2014!



Not only fruits but also clothes, which are traditionally worn on New Year's Eve. Anything with polka dots design is also resembles "Luck", due to the fact that circles or dots symbols money. 




Aside from wearing polka dots on New Year's Eve, it is also a tradition even in my family to
prepare 24 coins in our pockets to attract wealth. Jump as high as we can with the belief that will help grow taller.

These are few of the traditions which Filipino's usually practice on New Year's Eve.

BEST BUYS FOR THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON

It's been awhile and I miss sharing some thoughts for this CHRISTMAS SEASON, 2014!

I am excited for this coming Christmas. I am sure you are too! Christmas Day is the most festive day in the Philippines. Filipino Families gather around the world. A small party or called " Salo Salo" is known for all Filipino's especially during Christmas.

This is very famous in every Filipino Home.



And every Family will be amazed with endless Caroler. Usually kids go caroling. The famous songs sung during this season such as : Kasadya Ning Taknaan for Visayan.






Some of the famous songs listed as top ten Filipino Christmas songs: 

1. Sa May Bahay Ang Aming Bati
2. Ang Pasko ay Sumapit
3. Christmas in our Hearts
4. Pasko Na Sinta Ko
5. Pasko na Naman
6. Mano po Ninong, Mano po Ninang
7. Himig ng Pasko
8. Sa Paskong Darating
9. Noche Buena
10. Payapang Daigdig

Those are Tagalog Songs, and few English Songs. Filipino's love to give gifts to any love ones. 
My dream and promise for this Christmas, is to be with my Family and Celebrate Christmas Eve with them.
