Top 3 Pennsylvania Cities to Live In

Image Credit: Pixabay

Pennsylvania is one of the most populous states in the nation, making it important to the country. The living areas in Pennsylvania are also diverse, ranging from small rural areas to bustling cities. Pennsylvania is an absolutely gorgeous state to live in, as the state is home to many beautiful sites and historical areas. Pennsylvania offers a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy, one of the reasons why many people are so proud to be from the state. However, some of Pennsylvania’s cities rise above the rest and are truly great places to live in. These locations have some combination of beautiful views, historical monuments, and deep-rooted cultures. So where exactly are these great places to live? Here are the top three cities to live in.


When people hear about cities in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is usually the first city that comes to mind. Philadelphia is one of the most populated cities in the country and is prevalent in pop culture. In addition, Philadelphia has a deep history. The city was once the nation’s capital, and the city is also home to several historical locations. These locations include the Liberty Bell, one of the most iconic symbols of American freedom. Philadelphia also has a deep-rooted culture that gives the city’s residents a sense of identity. This strong sense of identity makes the city’s residents proud to be from Philadelphia. This regional pride makes Philadelphia a great place to live. Finally, Philadelphia has some great entertainment options for residents. The city has multiple professional sports teams as well as several museums and theaters. No matter what your entertainment tastes are, a big city like Philadelphia will likely satisfy it. Philadelphia is a great place to live for many people, and will surely inspire some sense of regional pride.


Another famous city in Pennsylvania is Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is known as the Steel City and is famous for its industrialization. Pittsburgh has fallen on some hard times recently, but the city is gorgeous and still has plenty to offer. Beautiful rivers like the Allegheny and Ohio flow through Pittsburgh, making for some beautiful natural sights. Like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh has a strong local culture. Pittsburgh residents are strong hard-nosed people, something that stems from the city’s steel factory origins. The city also has plenty of entertainment options, being home to several professional sports teams as well as a multitude of entertainment venues. Even though Pittsburgh may not be the economic superpower it was in the Industrial Revolution, several big companies are either headquartered in Pittsburgh or have locations in the city. This creates many economic opportunities for both businesses and residents. In the end, Pittsburgh is a great place to live and can really offer residents a wide variety of benefits. If you’re looking for a great place to live in PA, you should try looking into Pittsburgh homes for sale and see for yourself just how great the area is.


Compared to the previously mentioned cities, Harrisburg is quite unknown. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are much more popular and populous destinations than Harrisburg, but that doesn’t mean that Harrisburg doesn’t have its strong qualities. First, Harrisburg is the capital of the state. This means that the area has tremendous importance when it comes to state politics. Much of what goes on in our state government occurs in Harrisburg, making the area vital to the state. There are plenty of opportunities in Harrisburg when it relates to politics and government positions.  In addition, the city has a lot of local businesses and a relatively strong local economy. Many people come across the state to visit the capital, meaning that Harrisburg is a surprisingly strong tourist destination with a lot of traffic. In addition, Hershey and its areas like Hersheypark and the Giant Center are also close by. This means Harrisburg residents have plenty of entertainment options available. Finally, Harrisburg doesn’t have the high cost of living that is typically associated with cities. This allows Harrisburg residents to enjoy all of the benefits that come with living in the state capital without having to bear all of the costs of living in a major city.

Rakuboss: Your One-Stop Pinoy Freelancer Platform

At the age of digital information and social media, online or virtual jobs are currently in demand. I myself am a freelancer and I work online, but before I got my full time job, I used to work part-time jobs and it was really difficult for me to look for online jobs because it's either I lack the required skills for the job or other candidates have beaten me to it. Yes, if you apply first, there's a big possibility that they will hire you. It's really challenging to look for the perfect one that can work well with their time, experience, and salary expectation—especially professionals living in the Philippines.

8 Things to Keep in Mind Before Traveling to Maldives

The Maldives is perhaps one of the most picture-perfect beach destinations in the world. Situated in the Indian Ocean, this archipelago composed of more than 1,000 small islands has miles and miles of white sand beaches and crystal-clear blue waters. It’s also famous for those over-water beach bungalows, perfect for honeymooners or couples out on a romantic holiday.

Thankfully, it’s now easier than ever to book a Maldives tour package and to visit this slice of heaven on earth. Before you do, however, make sure you’re aware of critical bits of information to make your trip so much smoother. Here are a few to keep in mind.

No Visas Needed

Yes, you read that right. There’s no need for a visa to visit the Maldives for ALL nationalities. You can stay visa-free for 30 days, as long as you have a passport with at least 6 months validity upon your arrival. You should also have a ticket for your departure, of course, one that is valid within the 30-day duration of your stay.

It’s a 100% Muslim Country

The Maldives is the only one of two countries in the world with a 100% Muslim population (the other is Saudi Arabia). As such, be mindful of religious sensibilities. For women, particularly, make sure that you dress appropriately, i.e., no skimpy or revealing clothing unless you’re on areas where it’s allowed. Salat, the obligatory Muslim daily prayers, are performed five times daily: dawn, midday, noon, sunset, and night. As such, be prepared to hear calls for prayer throughout the day. If your trip coincides with Ramadan, note that there will be additional prayers each day.Many of the shops will be also be closed, and many services will be unavailable for the duration of the holidays.

No Alcohol, Pork, and PDA

Because of their religion, there are quite a few things that are banned in the Maldives. For one, eating pork and drinking alcohol are not allowed. The strictest Muslims don’t even touch alcoholic beverages or anything that contains alcohol. Other things that are not allowed are tobacco products (at least, those without printed health warnings) and religious texts that may be interpreted as something that can be used for preaching or proselytizing. It’s best that you leave these products at home.

Public displays of affection are also against the law, even quick, tiny kisses. For women, clothes that expose the shoulders, elbows, and knees are typically not allowed. The clothing restrictions are a little more relaxed at the airport, but it’s still better to err on the side of caution.

Most of these rules are forgotten or at least ignored on private resort islands, however. You can freely consume alcohol, eat pork, wear short shorts, bikinis, spaghetti-strap dresses and tops, and maybe engage in some PDA. As long as you’re not sunbathing in the nude, almost everything is allowed. Just remember that when you go back to the city center and other islands inhabited by locals, you’re expected to observe and follow the customs.

Best Times to Visit: November to April

For beach bums, the best time to visit the Maldives is around late November to early April. There isn’t much rain during these months, so you can soak up the sun as much as you like. In particular, the months of November to January are windy and not as humid. Meanwhile, for surfers, the best time to visit is during the monsoon season. Avid, competitive surfers can conquer huge waves around June to August; those who are on the inexperienced side can visit from late April to May and from September to October, when the swells are a little more manageable. Note that the monsoon season is considered the off-peak season, as the Maldives is still primarily a swimming, snorkeling, and diving destination more than a surfing one.

Bring US Dollars

The Maldivian currency is called the rufiyaa, but it’s often easier to pay using US dollars. Some resort islands also accept euros or British pounds. It’s best to use smaller notes, however. In the capital, Male, you can pay using US dollars but note that you’ll be given change in rufiyaa. There are establishments that accept credit cards, but the fees can be a little exorbitant. Cash is still your best option.

Their Drinking Water is Recycled

Most of the drinking water in the Maldives is recycled and treated. It’s perfectly safe to drink, but it doesn’t have natural minerals, so you might feel a little dehydrated. Keep this in mind, and drink more if  you need to.

It’s Incredibly Safe

The Maldives doesn’t have a huge problem with petty and violent crimes. In fact, it has a Level 2 threat level from the U.S. State Department. Some of the countries that share the same rating are France, Italy, and the United Kingdom, so that already gives you an idea regarding the Maldives’ safety. What you have to worry about more are powerful waves, since the Indian Ocean is known for its strong currents. For those who love posting on social media, internet access is a little expensive, but free Wi-Fi is usually available in resorts and hotels. You may want to download a VPN, though, since the Maldivian government blocks some websites.

You Don’t Need an Over-water Villa

It’s probably one of the reasons why you want to visit the Maldives: staying in a cabana or villa in the middle of the sparkling blue sea that you saw on social media. However, those can be quite expensive and staying in one is not really necessary to enjoy the beauty of the place. A hotel near the sea is more than adequate. In fact, it can even be the better choice when it’s rainy or windy. Don’t think that you have to stay in an over-water bungalow to have a “legit” Maldives experience.

Got all that? Now go and book that Maldives tour package and prepare your bags. Paradise awaits!

Send Affordable Flowers in the Philippines

"Make Me Blush" flowers. I got them at 50% OFF! 
It was my sister's 41st birthday last August and I wanted to give something special to her. Instead of buying a mug that she already has a large collection of, I decided to simply give her flowers instead. I remember from a movie that I saw on TV one time that people would send flowers to their departed loved ones, and then the narrator said:

"What good will the flowers do if they're already dead? 
They can no longer smell its fresh fragrance and you can no longer see the smile on their face as you give it to them." 

So that's when I started searching for some affordable yet good quality flowers to give to my sister who turned 41 years old. I figured it's best to give flowers to a person who's still healthy and at the prime of her life so she could appreciate it more. 

So when I started searching online, I found There were a lot of local flower stores online, but this is the only one that I found reasonably priced that also offers seasonal promos. They also offer same day delivery for your loved ones if you order before 5 PM (Manila time) from Monday to Friday or before 2 PM for Saturday and Sunday, and there's no additional cost for it! 

Here are some of the flowers I liked during last season's sale: 

A bouquet of flowers for P999 ($20) only! Wow!

Flowers, cake, and a balloon! Perfect for Valentines or simply sending your love to your special someone for P1,899 ($38)

There's still a lot of flowers to choose from. Go to and use my code: SOUTHBOUNDMOM to get P50 OFF your purchase!

Discover What’s Standing Between You and Your Success in Preventing Hair Loss

There comes a time in your life that you have to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.” And that’s the day when you decide to change your life for the better. Who doesn’t want to become accomplished? Even the “gifted” and brilliant ones have to pay the price so as to realize their goals in life.
When we fail to eat on time, get enough exercise or sleep between seven to nine hours a day, we’re compromising our health and wellness as we reduce the maximum extent that our body must function. Consequently, the effects in our body may extend and manifest as early warning signs of hair loss.
Take it from celebrity beauty and salon expert Fanny “TF” Serrano, who once personally experienced such an ordeal.  For him, avoiding harsh synthetic solutions and choosing to use the right products with natural ingredients is a must and still the best way to deal with mane problems like losing or thinning of the hair. 

With this in mind, embracing natural healthy lifestyle is so important to achieve optimal health, best physical condition and healthy full head of hair. Health products made out of natural ingredients are way effective for better healing and maintaining our body’s lifelong function than those of synthetic ones. Rather than investing in those branded shampoos or other hair treatments, there’s a natural way to help arrest hair loss and help remedy its four early symptoms, namely, excessive hair shedding, thinning hair, receding hair line, and bald patches.This is none other than NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss.
