A great alternative to smoking tobacco

There's no day that I couldn't look up my Facebook. I check out my friends' FB statuses and updates a couple of times a day (now, I sound like a nosy person haha). Do I sound like I have obsessive facebook disorder? Well, I hope not (lol). Now, I can relate to why smokers can't live without cigarettes. Despite the common health warning that we see on all cigarette packages, smokers still choose to smoke many times a day. 

Smokers smoke tobacco for various reasons. Whatever the reason is, smoking cigarette can definitely cause you health problems. To enumerate the health problems caused by smoking cigarettes are lung cancer, heart problems, pneumonia, bronchitis to mention a few. Smoking tobacco doesn't only affect the smoker but also the non-smokers. Non-smokers can breathe in the sidestream smoke from smokers.

So, do you want to quit smoking? To quit is just very easy to say. But in reality, it's really hard. There are many alternative smoking cigarettes. One of them is electronic cigarette.  In case you don't know anything about electronic cigarettes. They taste and look like the regular cigarette.

The nice thing about e-cigarettes is you don't have to worry about the sidestream smoke. E-cigarettes is designed to be a smoke-free alternative.

Camping

There's nothing better than spending time with my family. Last weekend, we went camping at KOA. It was great to get out of house even just for a short while. I thought it was going to be a stressful camping when you have a toddler with  you. But I was wrong. My toddler did pretty good at the campground. He didn't really fuss at night. He slept well. That makes me think that he is a flexible person. I just hope he won't change. 

It was our first camping as a family. We bought some camping stuff, which cost us a lot. But, you know what I think the next camping will definitely cost us less since we already have the camping gear that we need. All we have to do is buy food. Now, I look forward to more camping trips.

Santa Monica Beach

Me and my friends went to Santa Monica Beach last week. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't so nice to us. I mean, it was cloudy, windy and cold at that time. So, we just took some photos and stroll in the shore. But it was still nice to hang out with my friends. I would like to go back to Santa Monica Pier someday. The place is beautiful and clean.

Catching up with my old friends

It was so nice to see my friend from the Netherlands in L.A after seven years. Yes, that long! She had to move to the Netherlands in 2005 and get married there. Then, the next year I moved here in the U.S to be with my husband. We both met our husbands on the net. And after that, we had to go separate ways. We've been friends since college days. I was glad that I got the chance to meet her and her family in L.A. They are here for a two-week vacation. It was so great hanging out and catching up with my friend. I hope to see her again in the future.
