Introducing DinoDirect: The #1 Online Shopping Store in Asia!

An insider at DinoDirect personally contacted me about this OnlineShopping site in mainland China which is gaining popularity as major competing online store around the world. It can now be compared with Amazon & eBay for its increasing number of customers.

Without much further ado, I checked on the site and I was enthralled by array of choices, from famous brands in electronic and computer gadgets, especially the iPad 2 that I've been craving for. They've been selling products from A to Z (non-perishable items) that you can imagine. They have it there!

From the message that I received from April Chan, I came to know more about DinoDirect. She requested me to make some posting on my HubPages and also here on my blog spot to share sentiments on that particular online shopping site.

After an exchange of pleasantries and orienting me on her job as one of the employees there, I also did my research on YouTube uploads regarding DinoDirect and compared it with other online shopping sites, eBay and Amazon in particular. Both have ups and downs regarding delivery complaints, product returns.

I've also searched and browsed at the offical Facebook sites of the three online stores. There are always irate customers to attend to. It's true that we cannot please everyone in this kind of business. There will be always complaints to attend to.

What I can conclude is that online shopping stores are now the next level in shopping experience without going out the premises of your homes. The convenience it will give you with just the use of your credit card, paypal account, gift cards and other options (Wire Transfer, MoneyBookers & Western Union) will benefit you that much. You don't know the rewards that await you once you become a member of a particular online shopping store.

There's always a caution during online transaction. You may try it and see the results.

Tropical JOE - The Making of a Food Gourmet

Choosing the freshest of ingredients...from vegetable, meat and it possible nowadays. The danger of acquiring food diseases from it can be frightening; but we have to eat everyday. So, a precaution on Food Marketing is a must.

The rigors of what to write on my Food List can exhaust my time, especially if I'm on a tight budget during lean months. I share the sentiments of mothers, young and old, scratching their heads and sighing heavily if their husbands payoff will not swack on their weekly budget.

Why I pointed that out on this reverie of thoughts? Because, like them, even though I'm still single, living under the roof of my mother's home; my food contribution on the budget is ---ZERO! I'm on vacation, at least for year now, from my overseas job as seaman.

So, in order to pass the time, I help her in choosing what to buy at the city market, in the dry goods (canned foods, etcetera) and wet section (meat, seafoods and all) whenever she had the monthly honorarium as one of our barrio's councilor.

Prioritizing what to buy according to our needs, not our like should be our "mantra" when marketing for weekly food. You don't have to buy all the vegetables on your list. GROW them at your own backyard!

Here in the barrio, you can buy the freshest vegetables from the local growers, and also fresh eggs from ducks, fish from the roaming vendors via motorcycles and the traditional 'regaton'---a pair of bamboo fish baskets equally put at both ends of long bamboo pole. If you don't want to buy at the city's supermarts, local meat butchers can also provide you with portions of goat, pig, cow or chicken meats (sometimes carabao meat is also available). And don't forget fresh breads from the local bakers.

The Search for Happiness

I’ve been thinking about owning a blog spot on Finding Happiness before I completed this hub. My prayers were answered in due time.

My friend, who’s an IT (Information Technology) specialist, sent me a personal message on Facebook regarding the sub-domain of our high school batch site which he is maintaining.
He offered of making an appropriate blogspot on my articles on HubPages with a content of ‘happiness’ in each hub.
True enough, happy thoughts poured in as some of my ideas surfaced on the hubs that I’m making, just like what I thought it should be.
I’ve read a lot of happy thoughts from other hubbers and those who frequent social media sites, posting messages of happiness (Bible quotations and personal experiences) that inspired others to continue contributing good deeds to make this world a happy place to live with.
