Sanus TV Mount Review and Giveaway

Having a little one makes me extra careful with what I have in the house.  One way of child-proofing our home is mounting our flat panel tv on the wall.  Flat panel tv's are lighter than tube tv's which makes it easy for a child to tip over and it becomes a household hazard.  I just want to share with you these statistics from 2011 Consumer Product Safety Commission Report on Flat Panel TV's.

- A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured tv
- Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a tv tip-over injury
- Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities resulted from tv tip-over
- An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from tv tip-overs.
- Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%

Another illustration on how important property mounting of flat panel tv.

When SANUS reached out to me in joining their efforts and advocate the safety of mounting a flat panel TV, I didn't hesitate.  I'm so delighted to be part of a campaign that promotes safety to kids.

SANUS wants one of Delightful Ideas readers a chance to win a flat panel SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180.  The winner of this giveaway will be able to choose a mount that fits their tv. Please note:  this doens't include actual installation however SANUS gives you all you need to mount your tv yourself. This giveaway is open to US Residents only.

Father's Day Recap

For Father's Day I took my husband to Orange Hills Restaurant for their Father's Day Buffett.   The place is located at the top of the hills, you get to see the beautiful view of the city while dining.  I find the place gorgeous and the food very good. 

But the last experience I was a little disappointed.  I called in and made a reservation 2 weeks before but when we got there we still have to wait for 20 minutes for our table.  They wanted us to sit/eat on the couch at first, (that was kinda stupid, really?!) so when she saw the dismay in our faces, the hostess said she "just remembered" that there's one available table.  That just ruined my appetite there!  For $50 per person you expect a better service than that right?

I probably wouldn't go back there for awhile.  My husband and I love going to Orange Hills restaurant not only because of the delicious food and great view but also for good service. Good customer service is part of the Orange Hills experience.   :(

Book Reading and More....

It has been an eventful Saturday for us. We took Elias to a Kids Book and Crafts Party hosted by Room and Board at South Coast Plaza Village. We got to meet local children's author Alva Sachs as she reads from her award-winning books, Circus Fever and I'm 5. We did some clown puppet crafts and coloring.

It was very nice of Room and Board to host such event and provided some kid friendly snacks for everyone.

YakPak Messenger Bag Review and Giveaway

When I was contacted by YakPak to do a review on one of their products I got super excited.  I have been looking for a bag for my iPad.  I usually hold it around coz it doesn't fit in my purse. So when I went to check out their site, I found a perfect match for it, the messenger bag.  The Yakpak messenger bag is the perfect fit for my iPad as well as the charger and a few other things.  Its not too big either.  You know, when I have a bigger bag, I have the tendency to put more stuff in there, making it so heavy to carry.  But the YakPak messenger bag is just right.

I really love the bold colors and expressive prints they have on their bags. Its so vibrant that it puts me in a good mood when I look at it.  With the perfect bag I can take my iPad with me all the time now.  You can view the full product line at Yakpak site.

Yakpak wants to give one of my lucky readers this messenger bag.  To enter please use the Rafflecopter widget below.  This giveaway is open to US only.

Dim Sum in Orange County

Last weekend, my husband and I were craving for some Dim Sum.  We got rid of our rice cooker at home to keep me from eating rice every day.  I was so excited for the idea of Chinese food. We went to our usual spot, Capital Seafood at Irvine Spectrum.
They have the best chili sauce and we always ask for extra to take home. 

We went to the one at Irvine Spectrum that way we get to go shopping afterwards and take Elias at the water play too.

On Losing Weight

I've been working out about a month now and I'm already seeing some result.  I haven't really lost any weight coz I'm doing a lot of resistance training and weight lifting.  But I did shed a few inches on my body.  I'm finally able to fit in this dress.  I really have a bad habit of buying clothes that are small for me, I use that excuse as a "motivation" to get me to lose weight.  But of course it doesn't work all the time so I just ended up keeping them for months (even years sometimes).

The gym membership was a great motivator for me to go out and workout. Knowing that I'm paying for it, I'm kinda forced to use it.  And once I'm in the gym, its hard not to get persuaded when you see everyone else are in so much better shape than you are.  I remember my first week , I was using the elliptical trainer my goal was to stay for at least 5 minutes but halfway there I was ready to pass out.  Then a pregnant woman started using the one next to me like it was nothing to her.  How can you give up after seeing that, right? 

Looking good is a great motivation but my biggest one is being able to keep up with my kids.  I have a 12 year old and 21-month old and I really don't want to miss out on that by being out of shape.  I like it that I have more energy now to take my son to the park or go swimming or playing with him.  I still have a long ways to be able to reach my goal.  I would really love to hear your tips, advice or thoughts on getting in shape.
