Happy Halloween

I don’t really have much to say, so I would just like to greet everyone a Happy Halloween!

I have already prepared these sweets for trick or treating and hope it won’t rain tonight.

Some information about Halloween:

When is Halloween? Traditionally Halloween is celebrated annually every 31st of October.

When is the best time for trick or treating? Trick or treating is usually done at night time of the 31st of October where children dressed up as ghost, witches or cute cartoon /movie characters.

What do you give to children who are trick or treating? You can give money or sweets (candies/chocolates). But commonly people give sweets as a treat for kids.

Straight Talk's Android Mobile Unlimited No Contract Plan

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.



I am an android user for almost 2 years now and I love the fact that this little thing can do almost anything! Now I know that there are many mobile phones out in the market and online now a days, but it has not persuade me to get a new one as I Feel Richer with Android and Straight Talk’s unlimited everything plan for $45 a month. This is just amazing! And to tell you, this has been a big help with my husband and his little business as he has able to cut down his monthly phone bills in half. You see, my husband and I have been on other mobile phone plan about 2 years ago and the bills are over the top even with tight control over outgoing calls, but now everything has change and we are very happy with that change!

Anyway, I really feel that I want to share this with you, so here is my quick overview about Straight Talk. Aside from all the things mentioned above, with $45 a month no contract, no surprised bills, you will get an unlimited txt, calls, picture messaging and web, plus all the apps and games you need to experience The power of Android! It has got a nationwide coverage, so I have not yet encountered any problems with its connectivity or reception. Free from activation, reactivation, or termination fees and 411 calls are included at no cost too! So, what are the phones offered? I have seen some really good phones from trusted brands like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung, so I am sure you will be able to find the right phone that suits your needs. Like I said, I got a Android phone and I would highly recommend it to everyone I know, however if you fancy something like a smart phone with a smart plan, they got that too! I wish I could tell you more about it, but if you require more information about Straight Talk, you may visit their website, otherwise see the video I have attached with this post. All the best!

Sony CMT-MX750Ni Micro Hi-Fi Photo and specs

I have here 2 photos of Sony CMT-MX750Ni Micro Hi-Fi, now the first one you can see at the bottom (Photo 1) is the exact photograph of this hi-fi sold here in the UK, which has no audio output, but the one that the online shops are using for their advertisements is the 2nd photograph which shows an audio output and audio input socket on it.
I bought one for my husband recently thinking it has an audio output as shown on the online shop catalogue, but when we opened it, we were surprised to see there isn’t! I phoned up the costumer care where I got the item and inquired if there is any chance a headphone can be used on it, and the answer is no, can't put a headphone on it! So I had to send it back. Anyway we tried the hi-fi to see if it is working and just to check out the quality and it was excellent apart from the missing audio output. It plays almost everything like DAB radio,FM, CD, AUX, USB, ipods, iPhones, and wifi internet radio that streams from our PC upstairs. My husband actually like it, but at the moment a headphone is a must for him as we got a little girl who loves to watch TV all day and it would be difficult to have both running loud on a tiny house.
