Cover Flow. If a picture says a thousand words, think of what all the album art in your collection might say. With Cover Flow on iPod nano, you can flip through your music to find the album you want to hear. Use the Click Wheel to browse music by album cover, then select an album to flip it over and see the track list.
Music. Use the Click Wheel to adjust volume, navigate songs, browse in Cover Flow, or explore the Music menu by playlist, artist, album, song, genre, composer, and more. Want to mix things up? Click Shuffle Songs. iPod nano makes your music look as good as it sounds, thanks to its bright color display.
Movies. Buy or rent movies from the iTunes Store and you can sync them to your iPod nano to watch anywhere, anytime. Up to 5 hours of video playback means you can watch two movies back to back.1 And for your viewing pleasure, the 320-by-240-pixel display — with a whopping 204 pixels per inch — is 65 percent brighter than before. Or get a free download movie in the internet and sync it in your Ipod.

Games. Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod nano comes with three games — Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike — and you can download more from the iTunes Store but you have to pay for it. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface. And all of them look great on the 2-inch color display.

I choose Coron from the many destinations in the Philippines beacuse it's near Manila, their a lot of people telling that it's beautiful. Coron is a province in Palawan in Busuanga Island. Palawan was said to be the last frontier of the Philippines and I simply love Palawan. But before I scheduled any trip I make it sure that we have hotel reservations and itineraries. Luckily I was able to reserved to a resort which has a very affordable rate. Take note I only reserved it thru e-mail, it's nice that we have this technology, no need to call or even go to a booking office to reserved plus they are not asking for any deposit. I reserved February 9-10, 2008 at Busuanga Seadive Resort for two days and one night. After that I made reservation at Superferry for the said trip and got the ticket two days before the actual departure.
We left Manila, February 8, 2008 at 5:30PM on board Our Lady of Good Voyage bound for Coron and Puerto Princessa. We ate dinner at the ferry's cafeteria and just slept all night at the vessel. We arrive at the Port of Coron February 09, 2008 at 6:30AM it was a long journey, a ten hour ride. Then hop-in tricycle(this is the only means of public transpo in the place) and asked the driver to bring us to Seadive Resort, the ride was just Php20. We ate our breakfast in the hotel and it was a wow! the food was great to think that it's not that expensive. By the way the owner of the resort is a foreigner, an English who marries a Filipina. We have a heavy breakfast since our itinerary for the day was island hopping. We rent a boat, for the whole day island hopping it cost us three thousand pesos (Php 3,000) . Luckily there's this German tourist who wants to join us so to save him from paying the amount in full and this means we will only be paying two thousand pesos (PhP2,000), that's a nice deal! That German was an English teacher, so as a teacher he knows much...he keeps us company but the problem is he always talks, he really likes to talk....it was nice thou but there are times that you just want to be quiet and feel everything what mother nature has offered. So the hopping begins... First stop at the Kayangan Lake it has Php150 entrance fee. Before you can reach the lake you need to climb a rocky mountain but the activity was fun...down there it was beautiful, has clear water and it was splendid! This view is the most photographed area in Palawan. It is also judged as the cleanest lake in the country. Second stop was at Twin Lagoon, it's a towering rocks and on low tide you can experience kayaking under the hole of the rock. Then third stop at Banol, this is where we ate our lunch, it has fine white sand in its beach line and trees. Next is Beach 69, it's also nice here but not as good as Banol. Fifth is Skeleton Wreck, it's a snorkeling site where you will see sunken ship and around it are beautiful corals, by the way these wrecks are Japanese ships sunk during the World War II. And last was at the Barracuda Lake, as the name implies it has barracuda in the lake thou professional divers says they are so small and afraid of people..LOL. But before you can reach the place you have to climb a rocky mountain, it was a little dangerous just have to be careful with the rocks it has sharp tip and edges. The place was nice and quiet, tranquil and serene.

Once in a while it's good that couples give time to travel and treat themselves with a nice vacation. And we did it!
It was Saturday afternoon of 28th of June 2008 via Singapore Airlines when I travelled along with two kids. Our trip is bound for Singapore. It was the day that my kids will again be reunited with their father after one month of relocating to Singapore.
A lot of people are asking me even my husband if I can manage to travel by plane with two kids, not to mention how old are they. A two-year old boy and a one-year old girl. They are that small to handle all by myself. I took the challenge of me bringing them by myself. I told my family and even my husband I can handle it because I know my kids and their capabilities. I was really waiting for that day to come and the thought of it makes me more excited to the activity.
The activity was fun and challenging. At the plane, my son got fascinated with the remote control at the side of the seat as well as the television in front of him. My daughter was busy browsing the magazines provided in the plane. Thanks to this materials it makes my kids entertained and be busy during the trip. Am so proud of my kids because they are so behave during the travel and they don't even sleep.
I am so happy and fulfilled that I was able to bring them in Singapore all by myself.
