You might think this tree has paints on it but its all from natures gift on us. This gorgeous tree is called Eucalyptus deglupta, commonly known as the “Rainbow Eucalyptus” , and also known as the Mindanao Gum, or the Rainbow Gum. Its multi-coloured streaks on its body comes from patches of outer bark that are shed annually at different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.

Eucalyptus deglupta is the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. It grows naturally in New Britain, New Guinea, Ceram, Sulawesi and Mindanao. Now, this tree is cultivated widely around the world, mainly for pulpwood used in making paper, and also for ornamental purposes.

Impressive education system in FinLAND April 23, 2013

Saw this one from one of my blog source and its pretty obvious how they did it but still only a few meets the requirements when it comes to an impressive educational system. There is no point in adding years in grade school, high school or even college when the main problem is the school itself. For example, no matter how parents pay high tuition fees for their kids and expects a lot from their young ones of course but the main cause of a poor education is having a big group of student such as 40 students in one class room is more than enough for the teacher to guide every pupil she has inside it, in short it is a big overload, and sad to say not every private schools is a very convenient one when it comes to number of students. Some private schools tend to give a low salary for teachers and sad to say most of the veteran professors leave because they are not given the good benefits of staying like raise in salaries etc., so the top/experienced teachers leave the school and the freshly graduates and less experienced teachers replace the top/experienced ones of course in favor for the school budgets (which the parents are paying for the good of their daughters/sons educations supposedly) and worst because parents want their kids to excel or even improve more and are not as good as the parents expects they send their kids to private tutorials (BUmmer! whats the use of paying a high tuition fees with the inconvenience of spending more money to teach their kids individually?) .. And so some just got their own ways of saving their kids from this delema. I hope this blog will wake some money makers in our educational system that our future is at risk if the kids is at risk of not getting the right kind of educational needs.

This is just a thought that everyone should realize, money are spent and time is wasted but at this point money are wasted and so is the time. And that’s all, have a nice day !

Wished this could be implemented in our country!

15 Obvious Flirting Signs Between a Guy and Girl March 26, 2013

Filed under: Daily,Personality — TinaCulit @ 1:31 pm

#1 A lot of touching. Touching each other a lot in the middle of a conversation is a sure sign of flirting, especially if the touches are unnecessary. If your cute friend is finding excuses to touch you now and then, it’s a sure flirting sign.

#2 Entering into the personal zone. Does your new friend come really close to you now and then? If your friend tries to come really close to you to whisper something that doesn’t need to be hushed or if their hands reach out towards you often, it’s obvious they want to get close to you, fast!

#3 Show off the best side. In the animal kingdom, mating season always calls for exaggerated displays of feathers and strength. In the human world, mating and dating potentials try to show off their best sides. Girls raise their chest or try to get a guy’s attention to their attractive features, while guys try to charm a girl by talking to her or showing off his manliness.

#4 Their eyes sparkle. One of the biggest flirting signs you can notice in a flirty conversation is the widening of the eyes. When a friend of yours is getting attracted to you, their eyes would be wide open and expressive through the entire conversation.

#5 A lot of smiles and giggles. Do you find yourself or your cute friend laughing and giggling throughout the conversation for the silliest of reasons? If your date can’t help but continuously flash a big grin while talking to you, there’s definitely a flirty feeling in the air.

#6 Avoiding all external distractions quickly. If this guy or girl you’re talking to receives a call, do they excuse themselves for a while, or do they try to end the phone call immediately? Or if this person you’re talking to walks into a friend, do they try to end the conversation quickly? Anyone who’s trying to get your attention and flirt with you would always try to end any distraction as quickly as they possibly can.

#7 They check you out. Does this person look you up and down or do their eyes wander over your body, especially when they think you’re not looking? Anyone who flirts with you would definitely want to take a good look at someone they’re sexually attracted to. If you want the flirting to continue, make sure you give enough time for your cute friend to take a good, long look at you!

#8 A lot of blushing. Just like smiling and laughing, blushing is something that comes involuntarily in a flirty conversation. Does your friend’s face go pink when you compliment them? If it does, gosh, you’re making a huge impression on this person!

#9 Shows off the single tag. If someone’s trying to flirt with you in the hope of dating you, they’d try their best to let you know that they’re not dating anyone. They would want to make it clear to you that they’re single and looking for someone interesting to date.

#10 Veers the conversation to date plans. Does this fine new friend of yours try to constantly change the conversation to talk about your weekend plans or your favorite movies? If your friend wants to know if both of you have any hobbies or weekend habits in common, it’s a definite flirting sign.

#11 Compliments and exaggerated expressions. Does your date ever go “…really …aww …that’s so sweet” or anything along those lines for the smallest of your stories? When someone tries to flirt with you, they’d compliment you a lot constantly and they would definitely indulge in exaggerated displays of expressions.

#12 They get annoyed if they’re cut in. Does this friend you’re talking to get offended or do they behave rudely with another person if they cut in to join the conversation? If someone wants to flirt with you, they’d hate it if some other person joins the conversation or tries to get your attention.

#13 The guy acts dominant, the girl acts coy. If a guy or a girl tries to flirt with you, they would involuntarily start to emphasize their sexual traits. The guy would try to behave more manly or protective, while the girl would start to behave in a very sweet and coy manner.

If you feel like this friend talks to everyone else in a particular way and becomes very affectionate or protective around you, that’s a good flirting sign to watch out for.

#14 Completely focused on you. When you’re talking to this person who seems to like you, do they focus all their attention on you and no one else even if there are others around you? Does this friend try to look for excuses to touch your face or shoulder, or look for ways to tease you? If this friend is completely attentive to you and your needs and nothing else, even if there are several others around, there’s definitely something brewing in the air.

#15 Excited to be with you. One of the biggest signs of flirting is the excitement in the air. If you bump into this person or lock eyes across the street, are they really excited to see you even if both of you aren’t really the best of friends?

If your friend tries to prolong the conversation or doesn’t want the conversation to end with you, it’s a definite flirting sign. After all, why would someone want to hold onto you unless they like you a lot and want to be with you?

Dressing for Your Body Shape March 24, 2013

Triangle Shape

Triangle Body Shape

Best features. Shapely legs, a trim waist and head-turning hips give your body feminine appeal.

Common pitfalls. “You have a slender upper body, so your instinct might be to show it off with slim-fitting shirts,” says Saboura. Resist the urge! Tiny tops throw off your body’s balance, making your bottom look bigger than it is.

Tops
When you think about tops, think layers. Creating balance for your shape is all about filling out your upper half. “A cardigan is your best friend,” says Saboura, because it adds lightweight volume. For cooler weather, try cropped jackets that stop at the waist (channel Jackie O. for inspiration). Don’t be afraid to show a little skin, too. Three-quarter sleeves, wide scoop necks, and one-shoulder tops all look great on you.

Bottoms
Boot-cut pants are best for your body. “The slight flare helps to balance out curves, especially if you wear them with a heel to give your legs a little length,” Saboura suggests. Go for dark, medium-rise jeans with simple stitching and pockets in the back. For skirts and dresses, try a classic A-line cut that falls softly over your curves and highlights your trim waist. Avoid high waists and pleated skirts—they’re made for filling out figureless femmes.

Fabrics and Flair
Draw the eye up with bright colors and embellished tops. Saboura says, “Try a boatneck shirt with horizontal stripes,” or a cardigan with rosette detailing. Chunky jewelry can work well for you too, adding interest up top. Prints and patterns are fine for your lower body, but aim for darker colors.

Circle

Circle Body Shape

Best features. Slender legs, slight shoulders and a trim booty give your figure a graceful allure.

Common pitfalls. “Circles often try to cover up their bodies,” says Saboura, “but that’s the opposite of what they should do.” Showing off your neckline, forearms and a little leg (just a little!) looks elegantly classy—not to mention younger, longer and leaner.

Tops
Your body is soft and round, so your goal is to add structure, especially on top. Try a structured jacket (like a blazer). “Draw angles and lines across your body with wrap dresses or asymmetrical hemlines,” suggests Saboura. Draped fabrics, cowl necks and flutter sleeves look great on you, too, for a feminine flourish. If you feel like you need more support, layer with a dressy tank top that has a bit of lycra.

Bottoms
You’ve got great legs, so show ’em off! A slim, straight leg or bootcut is perfect for you, and wearing a heel “takes off a little weight and shows off your legs,” says Saboura. Dresses with ruching or gathering hide the tummy, creating an hourglass effect.

Fabrics and Flair
Prints and patterns look great on you, especially on your upper body. Go for large floral or geometric prints to flatter your figure—small prints won’t do the trick. Stick to weighty fabrics (like heavy cotton, wool or muslin) that have more natural structure.


Hour glass

Hourglass Body Shape

Best features. Big breasts, a slim waist and curvy hips make your figure the crème de la crème of feminine beauty.

Common pitfalls. Your figure has natural allure, so you may be tempted to give too much away. “Everyone is trying to mimic the hourglass curve, but you’ve already got it,” Saboura says. “Show off a bit, but don’t give away all your curves.”

Tops
Simplicity is key for you. Look for clean, simple tops with scoop necklines and three-quarter sleeves. Avoid layering, and look for waist belts that help define your tiny tummy. You look best in princess seams—long, shapely seams that gather in at the waist and flare out again at the hips—that have a smooth, snug look and show off your contours. Fitted jackets look great on you, but “they need to be really well tailored,” says Saboura. “Choose jackets that nip in at the waist and flair out, like a poplin jacket.”

Bottoms
You look best in skirts that stop at or below the knee, not above it. Pencil skirts look great on you, as do bootleg pants and skinny jeans. Choose pants or skirts that follow your natural curve, and go for fitted options (but not too tight). “Embrace your silhouette,” says Saboura. “The sexiness is in seeing the curve, not giving it all away.”

Fabrics and Flair

Keep it simple with solid colors. Prints can disguise your figure, rather than highlight it. The same goes for fabrics. Avoid extra fabric and draping, and opt for a bit of stretch. Color looks great on your body type, but monochromatic outfits look best (think: Mad Men’s Joan Holloway).

RulerRuler Body Shape

Best features. Slender and often athletic, your build is easy to outfit.

Common pitfalls. You have a naturally sporty look, so you may tend to choose simple, fitted cuts. “That can actually make you look boxy,” Saboura says. Instead, you want to use clothing to soften your body and create curves.

Tops
When choosing a shirt, “avoid adding more square or straight lines,” Saboura advises. Instead, complement your natural lines with asymmetrical or rounded hemlines, and ruffle details. Halters look great on you, as do boatnecks and off-the-shoulder shirts. Since your body is naturally athletic, you’ll look more feminine in tank tops with a thin, delicate strap. The same goes for jackets and blazers: Look for soft shoulders and steer clear of boxy, cropped jackets.

Bottoms
High-waist pants look fantastic on you, as do wide leg trousers. Both add curves and volume to your lower body. “If you want to embrace a more masculine shape with a boyfriend jean, go for it,” says Saboura. “But put some drape and movement on top.” For a ladylike look, wrap dresses look great on you, since they draw angles and lines across the body.

Fabrics and Flair
Use fabric to add softness and femininity to your look. Opt for lace, silk or lightweight fabrics, especially ones with natural draping. Embellished shirts and ruffle details add softness and give your body a bit more, well, body.

Inverted triangle

Inverted Triangle Body Shape

Best features. A tapered torso, trim waist and killer legs make you look confident and fit.

Common pitfalls. Your legs are typically well-sculpted, so your instinct may be to show them off with fitted leggings. That works if you’re wearing a long top (below your booty), but in general, you want to add volume to your lower half.

Tops
You look great in cowl necks and deep V-necks that help minimize a stronger upper body. Go for simple, fuss-free shirts (no ruffles!). For feminine flair, tops with gently draped fabric or flutter sleeves add movement and softness. Embrace your inner flapper, and rock a drop-waist dress—a look that few can pull off!
