Picasa Bandwith limit

I have been thinking of upgrading my Picasa account not just for more storage size but for bandwidth too because I am expecting to upload more photos but I do not know what is Picasa's bandwith limitations. It shows the storage limits and I have been searching online about this but no one seem to know and Picasa never answered the forums on their help section. It is much better when you pay for something that you know exactly what you are getting just like buying a computer, you wanted to know all the specs before you decide that is best value for your money.

Our Hong Kong Adventure

Chikay's Friends in HK
nothing to do while riding the bus
Dining at Victoria Peak

It was last July 2009 when I visited Hong Kong. Chikay did a wonderful job taking me places that interests me. I opt out on going to Disney since I've been to DisneyWorld in Orlando. Meeting her friends was one of the reasons I stopped by in Hong Kong. Like I've known them for awhile because I got to talk to them on phone several times even when they hang out together. It was our plan to have lunch in Outback Steakhouse. I really like the food there. Almost all the places we went to eat tasted great. What about night time in Hong Kong? The Hong Kong city lights show is one of the coolest thing to see in Hong Kong. For travelers who don't wanna miss this , is shown nightly at 8:00 PM. Chikay and I just had Subway's turkey breast sandwich and took a foot long take out hehehe. When her and I are together, we really get along with food.

Our Trip to Niagara Falls,On

Niagara Falls is about an hour and half drive away from Toronto depending on traffic. Earlier this month Me and Chikay went for visit again. I say again because her and I both been to Niagara but we never been there together yet. We planned on leaving early on Sept. 4 , we actually did well and managed to get out of our hotel room 10:30 am. We were gonna stop for breakfast on our way to Niagara but instead I grabbed our left over pizza(believe me I eat cold pizza), chips and drinks and there I was eating while driving. She give me a bite every now and then and that was enough to fill me (til our next stop hehehe).

I better not miss "Factory Outlet" sign. Chikay is so eager to shop in factory outlet as there is none in Toronto. There are 40 brand name stores but we only managed to go about half of that. I got her a Guess earings. Ohhh yeah she loves those but hmmmmm later on found out it was too heavy for her tiny ears lol. We wanted to check COACH store but there were hundreds of people lined up to enter and I don't think we have time to do that. We both hate long wait! But keeps us wondering whats inside the store that looks like everyone is going out with sacks and bags of goodies like COACH is giving their products away. Then we tried some chocolates from Rocky Mountain and got a sort of membership card. Of course Chikay is a chocolate addict so I thought she could benefit if she have that card. Later on after hours shopping, my stomach start to growl! We thought about eating in the mall , but nah..... we came this far and to only eat in mall is not an adventure. So I grabbed this flyer and checked out the restaurants in the area and talked her into dining at the skylon tower. I told her it would be an experience and most beautiful view of the falls while we dine. So I made a reservation. They were willing to give us a seat right away but we are still about 20 min. drive away so we got the early dinner seatting.
From Factory Outlet we drove about a mile to try go karting. I got  a ticket for 9 laps. Chikay had a good time and I love to see her laugh and smile. It was fun driving like kids out in the track ;P  and we had so much of a goodtime that time flies. By then we only have 30 mins. to go to Skylon Tower, look for parking space and walk to the front counter.

Whew! we barely made it on time. We were there just minute before our reservation. I thought we were not gonna make it. But we really  huffin n puffin to  make it in front of the counter lol then a lady calling for our reservation time to  take us up. Yes! I am really excited about this. On our way up, we have to  stop for a pose. I am not much for picture taking so I just did what the photographer asked then  we go to the elevator.
                                Thank to http://www.skylon.com/ for the picture
                                            
Dining at the Skylon's World-Famous Revolving Restaurant was an experience with the best view of Niagara Falls. It was not expensive either and food was great tasting . I tried their coffee and I ended up drinking about 6-7 cups.Skylon actually revolve and will get full rotation in about an hour. View the virtual tour of Skylon tower click here.

We went to the observation deck right after I paid our tab and talk a walk around. Like we haven't had enough view of the sorrounding eh? Of course we went down take a walk in Niagara City Centre 'til it's getting dark. We were not able to wait for the firework show. It's ok, the whole trip was fun and we both really had a great time.

Merging Data and Stats in Alexa

I just recently switched to my own domain, people might not know it, but stats does change or in most cases it does not always match between the old URL and new domain. If you are familiar with Alexa Internet Traffic Stats, you might want to check your domain name and see if your stats did not go back to zero or not matched. In my case, I did this Alexa traffic check and showing traffic has no data, yet my thingsweshare url stayed intact. So the only way to fix that is go visit Alexa and request to merge your stats or data for both links in the forum.

Four Points Sheraton Lake Shore , Toronto

Photobucket

My visit to Toronto last Sept. 3 , we stayed in Four Points Sheraton Lake Shore. It was better than expected because we read a lot of negative things about the hotel and I was getting concerned if we gonna have the same bad experience like other travelers had but to my surprise, it really was not bad at all. The room we had is basic but clean, comfortable and have access to high speed internet. That is the main thing for me, comfort , cleanliness, wi-fi and location. The rest I can put up with. I don't really recommend the food in their restaurant though. It is to pricey and don't taste great. Location is great, for me the Lake Shore Park right in front is nice specially at night, you can take a stroll or just relax and watch the view of down town from a distance.
