QUANTITATIVE EASING AND TAPERING – WHY THEY MAY AFFECT YOU
If you are not familiar with these financial-speak terms you might be forgiven for thinking they are some kind of medical procedures. They are words which you may have heard a hundred times in news broadcasts and they may seem to have little relevance to day-to-day life. But in the global village in which we now live terms like quantitative easing (QE) and tapering can affect the financial health of everyone. How can this be?

To soothe away tension, to encourage a flush of color, to soften harsh lines and generally rejuvenate your face, a facial massage is unbeatable.
With quick, neat movements, the young masseuse tucked our model's hair into a firmly tied scarf and selected a cleansing lotion to suit our model's skin type. A thorough cleansing was completed, our model's face was given the once over with astringent and all was ready for the massage. With her hands well-lubricated with an all-purpose cream that she, neck and shoulder regions, the masseuse began the actual massage (in the sequence below) while our model visibly relaxed and allowed a look of pure bliss to spread across her face. Tense neck and shoulder muscles (which could and haggard look) were given equal attention until deliciously relaxed.

The best way to make lipstick stay put through a meal is to layer your lip products. Lip primers are a good place to start since they prevent feathering and fading. Clinique's All about Lips is a lip primer that comes in a handy pump dispenser and moisturizes in addition to keeping lip color in place. Next, follow these steps:
- Use a lipliner to fill in your lips. Try Prescriptives Lip Coloring Pencil in Wine or your favorite shade. Lipliner will act as a base color and primer for your lipstick. It will last long after your lipstick.
- Apply a matte or long-wearing lipstick such as MAC’s Rebel lipstick, lip stains by Clinique or Reveon or LORAC's red Catherine.
- After your meal, touch up with a lipgloss to enliven your lips. Try Revlon's Color Stay LipShine in Torch or LORAC's Lip Gloss in Luscious.
Ten Steps To a Home Facial - AT SOMETIME or the other you feel like putting your feet up and relaxing completely. You look at yourself in the mirror and discover that the glow is missing. It is drab and dull and just doesn't glow. No amount of makeup seems to improve it. That is when your skin is crying out for a facial. But you don't have to make an appointment and spend hours at a salon when you can do it all in the privacy of your own home.
The first step is to relax totally. Wear a comfortable outfit leaving the neck and shoulders bare. Tie your hair up and away from the forehead.
There are basically four types of skin:
The combination or patchy skin which has pockets of oil around the nose, forehead and chin with bits of dry areas.
The totally oily skin. This ages slower but makeup tends to get runny unless skin is not totally cleansed with astringent.
The dry skin. Unfortunately wrinkles show fastest on this type of skin and therefore it has to be nourished with cream to make it soft and smooth.
Finally the normal skin which very few Indians are blessed with. It requires very little care except for a thorough cleansing and an occasional facial to bring back the sparkle.
The face masks suggested below are for each of the above four skin types and can be mode at home from household ingredients.
For many Indonesians bargaining is a way of life and getting a fair or cheap price is regarded as a challenge. Sometimes vendors name a price based on the customer’s perceived ability to pay, rather than the actual cost of the item. This makes it more difficult for foreigners, who will usually be quoted a higher price. Some people consider bargaining to be time-consuming and frustrating, but it is also a game and if you know the rules it can be fun.
> Do not try to bargain in shopping malls and stores with fixed prices. You are expected to bargain in road-side stalls, such as those selling plants and flowers, traditional markets and “tourist areas” such as Jalan Surabaya, Pasar Seni Ancol, and the various “antique” shops in Jalan Ciputat Raya and Jalan Kemang Timur, or in the Puncak area.
Most expatriates prefer to return to their home countries in order to celebrate Christmas with family and friends; however for those who cannot or choose not to do so, Christmas celebrations in Jakarta can still be festive and memorable.
Although Christians make up only about 10% of Indonesia’s population, there is still a lot of evidence of the Christmas season in shopping malls and hotels most of which are decorated with a Christmas theme during the weeks leading up to the holiday. Christmas music can be heard in the shopping malls and on the radio, and the local Indonesian TV stations carry special Christmas programs. Christmas day is a national holiday in Indonesia, and the international schools all have breaks of at least three weeks in December and January.

: This had always my concern ever since the day I understood and started liking the Country. The Culture, People and Interests of the Country are such that, the whole world especially Asia must be aware of, but sadly it's not. Bali is the best known place as a tourist spot, which hardly has a trace of rest of Indonesia, particularly of West Java, an Island I belong to. I have never imagined, experienced and heard the staff of theme park accompanying the individuals, who are taking their rides alone. Its relatively easy to learn the local language, because the people around you and everyone you come across make you learn, if you show that you are keen in. My every day walking is also an unique experience for me, everyone I see, end up smiling with me or greeting me whether they are known or strangers. This kind gesture is a great boost for anyone; it helps beat the tiredness and boredom. I am proud to mention about my fitness centre too, at this juncture. I never felt as a stranger even when I was new to my aerobics, for the kind of friendliness the members and my trainer demonstrates. I am treated in a way that I look forward for my sessions and to meet my friends, I am an only expatriate though. It's unfair on my part if I fail to mention my unique experience, when I was still naive to the place. I could never forget a man running towards to me to help me with a landmark that we had asked him a few minutes ago. Even though he didn't know it, he ensured to help us with the support of his friends, before we left his place. I don't know his name; don't remember his face but his act of kindliness is something that I can never forget.
