My 30th 8x8 Photobook from Artscow

It was on February 26, 2012 when our clan (mother's side) had a family reunion and it was successful. After almost a year of preparation the said event went through and I have to say that it was blast. Seeing all my relatives whom I have not known and seen for many years is a delight.

I have some relatives that I didnt even know they are my relatives not until this reunion. It has brought 'so much delight to all of us. There are games, dancing, and raffle during the reunion.

Each family brought their designated food and wore their clan's color. All in all we have around 400-500 attendees. I heard that another reunion will be held in 2014.

I complied all our photos and made it into a photobook. Have it printed at ARTSCOW once again. Thanks to Artcow's free photobook promo all the time because I was able to save so much!

Stress and Work

Stress is something that affects employees in any profession, the research shows. Employees from all backgrounds in any type of environment won't be able to produce if they are unable to properly manage stress levels. Stress can impact mental health, increase absenteeism, elevate risks of illness and affect team morale. It's no surprise why companies are investing more money into developing a deeper understanding of how stress really impacts employee productivity.

Stress and illness
Stressed employees sometimes come to work when they are ill. According to a UK study, this can be detrimental to productivity all around in the workplace environment. According to research, employee productivity dropped from 75 percent to 55 percent when they attended work while ill. Many attend work out of pressure and fear of the impact it would have on their long-term career objectives.

Increased workweek
Other research indicates that employee burnout and stress can diminish productivity. Researchers found that overworked employees are more likely to become stressed and burnout as a result. Some experts suggest dramatically limiting the amount of overtime a person is allowed to work in any given week. Advocates of such restrictions suggest that no employee works more than 40 hours in any given week. An estimated 75 percent of workers in the U.S. put in more than 40 hours per week at their jobs with a surprising one in three workers completing fifty hours or more of work in a given week. sells employee time clock software that can help employers keep track of the work schedule of employees most at risk for burnout. Stress really can impact the performance of the individual, contributing to illnesses and burnout. Healthier employees tend to have a better work life balance. Keeping employees healthy and reducing their stress levels will prevent burnout and create a more productive environment.

Hobby and Music

With so much gusto and perseverance, my 16 year-old nephew learned how to play the guitar all by himself. I have seen him practice and play the guitar on his spare time and I never thought that he could learn it so fast. In fact, he enrolled in music summer class and just this weekend I have seen him holding his music notes trying to learn all the notes. I will not wonder if one day that he will ask his parents to buy another guitar and mel bay books at Guitar Center online.

I just hope that he'd do good in his music class and I heard that in one year time when he goes to the university, he'd like to take up conservatory of music. I never thought that he'd like that course or discipline but I guess he'll excel if he likes what he loves.

The 5 Best Looking NBA Jerseys of All Time

The 5 Best Looking NBA Jerseys of All Time From the absurd and nearly blinding to the simple, timeless and classic, over the years NBA fans have seen a vast array of basketball uniforms. Superstars, role players and bench warmers have all suited up in jerseys representing the good, the bad and the ugly. Here are our all time top five.

5. Chicago Bulls, Road Jersey 1973/74 - 1984/85

Any hardcore hoops fan of the past few decades remembers images of a young Michael Jordan (with hair, even) skying through the air in this red jersey with Chicago splashed across the ches
t in slick cursive writing. Though Jordan, Pippen and a strong supporting cast would win six titles in updated jerseys throughout the 90s, the staying power of this seminal retro design cannot be denied, as the Bulls still suit up in this classic design from time to time.

4. Atlanta Hawks, 1970/71 - 1971/72

These short-lived Hawks jerseys featured a swirling green and blue design, far removed from the intimidating red and black that has represented the team for decades. By far, the most common throwback jersey to be spotted from this era is this the Pistol Pete Maravich, complete with "Pistol" in quotation marks on the back in lieu of the traditional last name above the number 44. The flare and legacy of Maravich's stylish game is solely responsible for the popularity of this unique design.

3. Denver Nugggets, 1982-83 - 1992-93

Although this design changed slightly during the mid 1980s, the loud and kaleidoscopic array of colours stuck around. Denver legends like Alex English, Kiki Vandeweghe and even a young Dikembe Mutombo famously sported these classic jerseys. The design remains a prominent choice can still be spotted on hats, shirts and jerseys all over the world today.

2. Los Angeles Lakers

No rundown of the NBA's all time best jerseys would be complete without a nod to the purple and gold of the L.A. Lakers. This franchise has proved over the years that you don't mess with tradition by keeping the jersey design simple, classic and elegant. From Jerry West and Kareem to Magic, Shaq and Kobe, the Lakers jersey represents not just winning, but winning with style, grace and swagger.

1. Boston Celtics

Finally, our top spot goes to another franchise that respects tradition over fashion trends. Owning 17 NBA titles, which is one more than the Lakers, Boston proves that good luck comes to those who remain loyal by sticking with the green and white Irish-infused design over a half-century of winning and success. Russell, Cousy, Bird, McHale, Garnett and Pierce have all rocked the classic colors all the way to the championship parade. The Celtics know to how to look good and win, which places the storied franchise at the top of our list.

Though the argument may be made for a lot of jerseys, the answer often also comes down to the story of the players who suited up in the jersey and what they did to represent the team. In the end, style can carry a man most of the way, but it's up to him to finish the job.

Music Themed Party

These days, I've noticed that the most common theme for children's party apart from the Disney Princesses is Music or Rock Star Themed Party. Why not? There are lots of singing and dancing and kids can enjoy those types of party for they can join anytime. Hosts usually ask the kids to go in front of the stage to dance or sing with them just like what we have experienced when we went to some parties this year. I bet you it's a super fun party.

Rock Star party theme is so cool as well. If your kids love guitars then they can us those as props during the party. Just in case you are preparing for your kids' party soon, why not consider have a Music themed party and for sure kids will have a grand time.
