7 Qualities of a Good Wife

Whether you're a man looking for a good wife or a wife wanting to improve yourself, your marriage or your relationship - take a look at these 7 qualities of a good wife. Good fruit will come from these basic qualities anyone can develop.

7) Nag free. Ladies, a good wife is going to be nag free. Nagging is an ineffective method of trying to get your husband to perform a task you desire. Trust me ladies - it doesn't work and often will have the opposite of its intended affect.

6) Supportive. Are you supportive? What does it mean to be supportive? Do you belittle your man or do you help him to feel good about himself, his job, activities? Your husband will be much more respectful of you if you support him. Even when you don't agree with him - respectfully let him know you don't agree - then support him anyway. Otherwise, if he has difficulties - he'll feel as though you're adding to his troubles.

5) Build up your man. Ladies, there's no quicker way to build resentment in your man than to criticize him - especially in front of others. On the flip side - try genuinely complementing your husband in front of other people. Your husband will glow with admiration toward you and you'll feel his appreciation as love.

4) Keep him happy in the bedroom. Unfortunately, many women underestimate the importance of keeping her man's needs met. Often this comes from the basic differences in women and men. For men, sexual desire is much like physical hunger and if it's not fed properly - the relationship will struggle. Women must look to understand the needs of the man from his perspective not hers.

3) Respect. A good wife will try to treat her man with respect. How? Much of learning how to be respectful toward your husband has to do with the way you talk to him. The old phrase "It's not so much what you say but how you say it" should become a wife's motto. This doesn't mean you need to be careful what you say to your husband - just be respectful in the way you say it.

2) Communicate. Ironically, good communication between men and women can be quite frustrating. However, a good wife will seek to discover what's on her mind and find a way to express herself to her husband. Often, men and women will make a joint decision - while the man thinks she's in agreement with him - but only to discover later that she thought the decision was a bad idea.

1) Be pleasant. Work to be pleasant toward your husband. Don't be one of those people who makes everyone around you feel bad just because you've had a hard day. Good things will come from being pleasant. It's a decision - just decide to be pleasant. But if you can't be pleasant - make a decision not to bring him down with you.

Stella says:
So, wives.. are you included in those 7 qualities?... Check yourself and you might examine yourself by asking your man, or otherwise you can try to memorize it yourself for how have you been as a wife to someone you love. :)

I hope this become of a good tips for us to remember..
Till then, have a pleasant week.

Romantic Tips and Ideas for an Anniversary

Hello dear friends,
It's 30th November, the last day of the month. And tomorrow we will welcoming December with warm heart. Oh how i can wait December and finally it'll arrive tomorrow..hehe

Well, what actually happening on December. Yes, we're all knew that December is the celebrations for the Christians because this particular month is the celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, it is mostly known as Christmas Day celebration.

I love December sooooo much, not only because of Christmas and towards the New Year celebration, i love December because my birthday and hubby's birthday also fall in December. And to make life more happening and interesting, our wedding anniversary also fall in December. Now you can say that there are various joyous celebrations in a month. Full package celebrations hehehe..

Thinking of wedding anniversary, i would like it celebrated more in special way this year. But i don't really have idea how to proceed with it..  I searched for it on internet and i guess it's best I share this with you too.. :)

Romantic Tips and Ideas for an Anniversary

Little romantic tips and ideas can be the spark that keeps a loving fire alive, and what better occasion to be romantic than on an anniversary? It may be sweet, it may be cheesy, but whatever it is, romance is never a bad idea.

Know What Your Beloved Loves
When planning a romantic anniversary, remember to keep it personal. Even generic, romantic dinner ideas need to be molded for the exact person you're wooing. Chinese or Italian food, private or public table and candle or electric light all depend on your beloved's preferences.

Just Add Flowers
No matter what you have planned, adding flowers is usually a good idea. Flowers are usually first on the list for romantic tips for men, but women can take advantage of them as well. A bouquet is a quiet way of saying that just the small joy their beauty may bring is worth the money. However, make sure the flowers are in good condition. Cheap flowers suggest that it wasn't worth the time, effort or money to bring that special smile to your partner's face.

A Vacation Together at Home
Clean the house from top to bottom and send any kids or roommates away for the weekend. Rent some great movies you both want to see, and stock up on yummy food, drinks and lots of popcorn. Place all the phones on silent and take a vacation in your own home. Spend your anniversary time relaxing. Though not overtly romantic, taking a break and rejuvenating together helps restore that sensual aspect to any relationship.

Put Your Love in Writing
If you have a way with words, think about lavishing those thoughts and feelings on your beloved. Write a loving note or poem for each year you've been married. If it's your ten-year anniversary, write ten poems. Attach a flower to each poem. Start giving your spouse the poems before your anniversary, so that the last one lands on that special date.

Okay, that's it for now. 
I hope this tips not only give some ideas for me, but for you too.. :)
Take care.

What is Your Personality?

Hello dear friends,
How is your Friday so far?.. I hope all is fine.. :)
For me, today is a fine day except i got my stomach pain again early this morning.
Thank God finally i recovered several hours later after taking my medicine.
I guess my stomach getting more sensitive these days. Maybe i have to change my menu and i have to take medicine adequately. To be honest, i don't like medicine. I hate the taste.. :(

So, this time I would like to share with you this interesting quiz. It's about your personality test. I read about this from a good blogger friend, Glay. She also took the test. I told her that I'll take the quiz too..hehe

We're all human being, but we're not the same. Yes, it's true.. We interpret and respond with the world around us in different patterns. This quiz will help you understand your inner self. For example, why you have to choose or make decisions in certain ways. This will help you to choose your career paths that match your natural behavior, trying to understand your relationship with a differently-brained lover, friends, co-workers or family.. :)

So if you want to take the personality test, click HERE.

And my test result is ISFJ. I am an ISFJ person. When I read about the personal character, i found it somehow true. Maybe for those who study psychology will understand well about human personalities.

Here are some info about ISFJ personality:-
1. PersonalityPage.com
2. Wikipedia

Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Queen Mary I of England share the same personality. :)

So, eager to know about your inner self?.. Take the personality test. :)
Really want to know what's yours.. :)

Well, you can also try for Personal Dna test. This test has been designed by a team of professional psychologist. I took this test too and my result is:- Encouraging Leader.

About Encouraging Leader:-
1. Your solid grounding in the practicalities of life, along with your self-assuredness and your willingness to appreciate new things make you a LEADER.

2. You're in touch with what is going on around you and adept at remaining down-to-earth and logical.

3. Although you're detail-oriented, this doesn't mean that you lose the big picture.
You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts.

4. Never one to pass on an adventure, you're consistently seeking and finding new things, even in your immediate surroundings.

5. Because of this eagerness to pursue new experiences, you've learned a lot; your attention to detail means that you gain a great deal from your adventures.

6. The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things.

7. Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership.

8. You're not set on one way of doing things, and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges.

9. You are well-attuned to your talents, and can deal with most problems that you face.
You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.

10. You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.

11. You are a fashion maven, up on trends, but distinct in your own style. You don't follow trends, you set them.

How an 'Encouraging Leader' relate to others.
1. Your outgoing nature, understanding of others, and directness make you ENCOURAGING.

2. You want others to do well for themselves, and you generally believe in their abilities.

3. You often know what's good for people because of your caring nature and your worldview.

4. When you care about someone, you don't keep it to yourself: you are good at letting people know that you're thinking of them.

5. Because you trust people, you take violations of that trust very seriously.

6. You thrive in social situations, and even though you know who you like and who you don't like, you can interact well with many different types of people.

7. You have a healthy respect for people who have earned what they have, and you strive to be similar to successful others.

8. You are a loyal friend and a good listener. 

Okay, that's it for now. I found this is really good to get to know myself better. So how about you?.. Come and take the test, i like to know yours.. :)

Till then,

Hello dear friends.. It's Friday already. Yes!!, I am so happy because weekend is around the corner.  Sorry to keep you waiting so long for my blog update as well as to visit your blog. I can deny that I am so busy with the office work, but actually the main reason is the line yesterday was soooo.. bad. I can't even online in office yesterday for the whole day.  For an info, I didn't bring my Digi Broadband to office this week to give a way to my sisters since they're staying at my house. So I left my Digi Broadband at home and hoping that office's internet line will give a good performance. Well, things not went well as i hoping for.

Running – Good for Your Eyes?

You're probably familiar with some of the health benefits of running, such as improved cardiovascular function and weight loss, but did you know that it could also help prevent vision loss?

A pair of studies from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory tracked approximately 41,000 runners for more than seven years, and found that running reduced the risk of both cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Researchers found that men running 40 miles a week had a 35 percent lower risk of cataracts than men running 10 miles a week. The fastest 10K racers also had lower rates than slower runners. So, to keep your eyes in tip-top shape, it helps to run faster and longer.

Stella says:
Well if this fact is true, let us start to jog everyday to improve our eyesight. And of course not only that, jog can contribute to weight lose, to release some stress and makes you more energetic. :)

A blessed Tuesday.

Prince William Engagement

 Britain's Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton pose for a photograph in St. James's Palace, central London, Nov. 16, 2010. Britain's Prince William is to marry his long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton next year, after an on-off courtship lasting nearly a decade, bringing months of speculation about his intentions to an end. (Suzanne Plunkett /Reuters)

LONDON (AFP) – Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton received a flood of congratulatory messages Wednesday after announcing their engagement, with the wedding planned for spring or summer next year.

Middleton said she was daunted but happy to be marrying into the royal family after William had proposed, offering her his late mother Diana's engagement ring.

The couple announced their forthcoming marriage on Tuesday after an eight-year courtship, much of it in the full glare of the world's media.

When the couple marry in London next year it will be the country's biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles and the then Lady Diana Spencer married at St Paul's Cathedral in July 1981.

William said the sapphire-and-diamond ring his father, the heir to the throne, gave Diana in 1981 was "very special to me".

Giving Kate the ring "was my way of making sure that my mother didn't miss out on today and the excitement and the fact that we're going to spend the rest of our lives together" he said.

Blinking in the glare of flashbulbs, Middleton told a press conference at St James's Palace that the second-in-line to the throne had proposed during a holiday in Kenya three weeks ago. He was a "true romantic", she added.

"It's quite a daunting prospect but hopefully I'll take it in my stride. But William's a great teacher so hopefully he'll be able to help me along the way," said the 28-year-old.

The official announcement ended feverish speculation about when William would get engaged to Middleton, the daughter of a wealthy businessman.

Middleton and William met in 2001 at St Andrews University in Scotland. They broke up briefly in 2007 but soon got back together.

Prince Charles said he was "thrilled" at the engagement, joking: "They have been practising long enough."

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were "absolutely delighted", Buckingham Palace said.

William described the moment he proposed in a television interview later Tuesday.

"We had a little private time away together with some friends and I just decided that it was the right time," the prince said.

He said he had carried the ring around in his rucksack "for about three weeks" before proposing.

Asked if they planned to have children, William said: "We want a family so we'll have to start thinking about that."

A statement from Clarence House, Charles' residence and office, said that after marrying, the couple would live not in a palace but in north Wales where William is a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot.

Diana, Princess of Wales, is seen in this Apr. 25, 1991 file photo wearing her diamond and sapphire engagement ring. Prince Charles and Diana announced their engagement on 24 February 1981. (Tim Graham/Getty Images)

William's brother Prince Harry said in a statement he was "delighted that my brother has popped the question. It means I get a sister, which I have always wanted."

Kate's parents Michael and Carole said the family thought William was "wonderful" and "we are extremely fond of him."

Prime Minister David Cameron said the wedding would a "great moment for national celebration".

The wedding will happen a year before the queen celebrates her diamond jubilee marking 60 years on the throne -- and London hosts the Olympics.

Middleton's father was an airline steward and later became a flight dispatcher while her mother was an air stewardess before moving into the children's party business.

Messages of congratulation were soon arriving from abroad.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was quick to invite the future royal couple to his corner of the Commonwealth in a message of congratulations.

"It would be an honour to welcome Prince William and his bride to Canada in the future."

A message from the office of New Zealand Prime Minister John Key said he was "delighted."

Australia's Welsh-born Prime Minister Julia Gillard congratulated Prince William, saying he had left a "strong impression on many Australians" during his January tour Down Under.

"Ms Middleton will no doubt strengthen this remarkable reputation and she has the nation's best wishes and support," said Gillard, Australia's first woman prime minister.

And Japan's top government spokesman, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshito Sengoku, told reporters: "It was truly wonderful...

"As I have seen on TV, he is quite a handsome boy and she is beautiful," he said. "It's going to be like a fairytale."

Britain's press was for the most part equally effusive.

"William and Kate will give us a monarchy fit for the 21st century," said a souvenir edition of the tabloid the Sun.

The Times, part of the same newspaper group, agreed.

Stella says:
Congratulations to Prince William and Kate Middleton. May both them live happily ever after. So sweet that he proposed his girlfriend by offering his late mother's engagement ring. I am sure if Princess Diana still alive today, she would be happy to see her prince tying knot with Ms Kate. GOD bless them.

I came across by chance this World Walking Day event through the internet. 
It is an event to celebrate a simple form of motion we do everyday. Walking can burns calories, tones muscles, as well as shapes your body and helps de-stress your mind. There are so many benefits you could enjoy from walking..

It will held on 21st November, 6.30-11.30am at these places:-

Kuala Lumpur: Padang Bola, Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
Penang: Polo Ground, Jalan Sepoy Line
Kuantan: Padang MPK 1
Johor Bahru: Taman Sri Stulang
Penampang: Sports Complex Stadium
Kuching: Waterfront

At the same date and the same time.

If you wish to join, don’t come alone. Bring along more friends as well as family members. The more participants, the more fun.. :)
