First Bicycle Ever!

The advantage of living near the park is that I can walk or run around there anytime I want to. Lately, the cold weather is restricting me to do so. But I need to exercise regularly to stay fit and healthy. So hubby gave me a bike so we can still go to the park in minutes even on autumn and winter (granted there's no snow).


I never thought I could have this type of bicycle. To be honest, this is my first bike ever (Yippee!). Wait, did I sound like a child for a moment there? 

My bike in the middle of the road.

It is called The Duchess Leaf Orange. It has the modern and classic look that stands out with it's vibrant orange color. This bike have all the essentials of a bike such the saddle, rattan effect basket, mudguard, chain guard, 7 speed Shimano gears and bell. 

The features of this bike made it even more beautiful. The 7 speed gears allow me to pedal with no difficulty. The grips and saddle are also matching and gives me total comfort when using it. 

I was pleased with the service of the bike dealer. He carefully analyzed my requirements and he ordered from UK supplier the one that I like. My main concern was the size of the wheel. I specifically requested for 17" which fits my height. I don't want it so high that I will struggle to touch the ground. Other than that, I'm totally okay whatever comes with it.  

When it came, the dealer called my husband to inform us that it's ready for pick up. That same day, hubby and I picked it up and we cycled all the way home. You can check your local bike shop if they carry the same brand "Dawes". As it was a gift, I don't know the exact price of it but I checked it online and I was shocked to see that it cost my husband £349.99. (Again, "Thank You Sweetheart for this awesome bike. No more expensive gifts next time okay.") I am satisfied and happy with this bicycle and I will definitely recommend it based on performance, comfortability, style, and beauty. It's definitely worth the price. 

Summer is nearly over here but I'm hoping that I can still have the chance to use it even if the temperature drops.

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Seeing the Other Side of the World

I've been living here in Ireland for nearly five years now. I never thought I will be given a chance to the other side of the world. When I decided to come with my husband here, I carried a special joy in my heart because I know my life will change according to God's will. 

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
