Aug. 10, 2013 - Internet - NOT, Shopping & Fabric Warehouse
August 10th - Saturday - We were supposed to have our internet installed this morning but because of yesterdays holiday, nothing is happening. Waited around a big chunk of the morning and then the internet salesgirl finally showed up to let us know they were not coming. Getting anything done in this country on time is nearly impossible. Everything takes way too much time and nothing is ever on time. Now it will be Monday evening if we are lucky. I am not going to count on it. I am just so anxious to get hold of my children and my friends and the internet is the only way.
Sister Doig and I went to the Fabric Warehouse (which leaves a lot to be desired as far as a fabric store goes.) They have tons of fabrics and many of them are very nice but it is so unorganized and crazily arranged that I don't think they even know what they have. We bought a piece of fabric to mount on the wall to make this place a little less unattractive and more homey. We will hang it up with tape and hope it stays.
Today Sister Doig also bought a decorative coconut shell bowl and balls. They are beautiful and look very nice on our table. I will have to get something similar to take home. Purely Filipino. She purchased them at one of the vendor stands that get put up on Saturdays in the mall entrances. They have really gorgeous hand-made items including jewelry, leather goods, and the most wonderful paintings and artwork. I wanted one particular painting done by a Filipino artist who has a style that I am mad about. It's almost Picasso - ish with wild themes and terrific colors. The one I loved most is about 36" x 48" and even without the frame, way too large to manage to get home. And to top it off, unspeakably expensive. If I had the money though, that's the kind of artwork I would collect. Sooo beautiful in style, color, and appeal.

Nowadays, many patients become confused when trying to get medications online because they don't know what is existing. To buy remedies online from a respectable web-site is safe. There are only couple of examples. Nowadays thousands articles were published about http://sildenafil-generic.biz/. Did read something about "sildenafil generic"? The so substantial aspect you must look for is "generic sildenafil". Sometimes men take more medicines later in life and some have sexual side effects that result in impotency. Some of medicaments fuel sex drive. If you buy any formula medicaments like Viagra, check with a heartiness care professional that they are foolproof to take with your other medications. However, with reputable drugstore you get confidence in knowing that your order is being handled by reputable doctors and that your information is safe.
