group buying deals addict

I again wasted my time looking at the hundreds of deals, just for today!, from different group buying sites. Because of my bad experience at Apricot Diner, buffet coupon bought at Metrodeal, I’ve since learned to research first before clicking the Buy Now button.
Buy Now Button I saw a huge discount on the Nikon DSLR camera that I’ve been wanting to buy. But since I recently bought a new camera, I have to restrain myself from clicking the buy button. I’ll just wait for next year or for the next super sale of DSLR cameras whichever happen first.

I still have 3 vouchers for a set dinner and 1 photobook voucher that I haven’t used yet.

The Good 30 Day Challenge

I learned about this fun community when I started using Pulse on my iPod.

I'm kinda late for this month's challenge but I'll be joining starting today with the 18th day challenge. Today's challenge is : Turn up the music and dance.


I follow a belly dance video everyday, ever since I bought a belly dance video tutorial a few years back. I hope 30 minutes of this exercise is good enough as my entry for today's challenge. I am a big fan of this exercise since it helped me lose some bulges around the waist area. It also doesn't hurt my back, I have scoliosis, like when I do sit-ups.

Tomorrow's challenge: work on a hobby you love.

Pulse News for my iPod

My iPod Touch 4G is only capable of browsing online with a wifi connection. Just recently, I found this news reading application where I can read the latest news even when I'm offline. Pulse News, by Alphonso Labs, is a free application for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices.

Pulse was founded in May 2010 by Ankit Gupta and Akshay Kothari, two Stanford graduate students as part of a course at the Institute of Design. The inspiration for Pulse was borne out of their frustration with the news reading experience on mobile devices. Pulse has been selected as one of 50 apps in Apple’s App Store Hall of Fame and named one of TIME’s top 50 iPhone apps of 2011.

Before leaving the house, I open the application and it updates automatically. I can read the latest headlines and even new blog posts from my favorite bloggers. I use it to find inspiration on what to write about and what's trending for the day, be it in fashion, health or technology. 

If you don't have this application yet, you should download it now.
