Photobook Project:
Summer Vacation 2013

Yes! I finally finished our first photobook for this year with the theme Summer Vacation 2013. I must say, this is the record time so far. It only took me about 3 days to finish the layout, thanks to the very user-friendly software of Saal-Digital Fotoservice.

The first photobook that I made was for my daughter with the theme "The First Year". I made it to document and chronicle our firstborn's first 12 months. I planned on making the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th years along with our other vacation photos from the last 5 years but I guess the plan was forgotten in between graduate school classes, parenthood and household chores.

Anyway, I really love how the photobook turned out. It is printed on real photo paper in Matte finish and the printing quality is very excellent. Even the colors came out vibrantly and beautifully... thanks mostly to my Hubby's very good photography skills using his smartphone. :D

Here's a sneak peak into some of the photobook pages:

I plan on making more photobooks using the services of Saal-Digital. The next photobook project I would like to call "Ah Barcelona!" Watch out for that! :D

Them Mattress Toppers

Complaining of a hard mattress yet too stubborn to get a new one? Here's something that might chase all your hard mattress blues away without having to haul it out of your beds: a latex foam topper. This may be the best thing yet... aside from getting a new softer mattress that is. It's cheaper than getting a new mattress and provides better support because of the latex material. It helps to regulate temperature too because of its "breathing mechanism". You can also choose the hypoallergenic ones if you have a family member who is allergic to dust mites and synthetic materials.

I too would get these mattress toppers should I want to reinforce my old ones. Saves me money and effort in throwing the old one out too! :D    

The New Chromebook

Have you seen the latest from Google? I wonder if you have seen the latest ad for the Chromebook. Here in Germany, it is advertised as the notebook for anybody and for all. Below is a video of the ad from Youtube.

It really looked cool... It is made by Samsung but Google is advertising it as the Chromebook: The Laptop from Google. Sold here in Germany for €299. Not bad... Perhaps when I need a new laptop, I will get one just like it.

Anybody who is using the Chromebook? How is it's performance?
