Sino Galit????

Finally, I am able to do this 'maddening' tag that Recel and Mommy Emma passed to me. 'Maddening' kasi nakakaloka maghanap ng pics na hindi kita yung ngala ngala at wisdom teeth ko. Anyway, I found a few in our albums. This is the best I can come up with so please bear with me.

This first picture was taken by the hubs during our first Christmas together in 2001. He got me that guitar for a Christmas present. I was playing it early in the morning and he wanted to take a picture of me playing. Ummm...no way! I just woke up. If you notice my hair was still on a messy bun. So I just covered my fez with the guitar and let him....talk to the hand!!! LOL.
This second pic was taken in Taipei, Taiwan. I was 'forced' to emcee the graduation ceremony of the grade school. I have the story here if you want to read why I was not a happy camper on that picture.


This last one was taken again in Taipei, Taiwan during the HS graduation. Those were some of my co-teachers in the school I taught in. Can you find me in the picture? Clue...I was NOT wearing a habit...hehe. Nah, I was the 4th from the right. Reason why I was not very happy? This was supposed to be a picture taking of the faculty members to be used for the yearbook. It was HOT and some of our dear colleagues were taking their sweet old time going to their respective places. Baket?? Sikat ba sila?? Malamang!! hehe..joking!!!!

There you go Ms. Recel. My not so happy 'fezes' caught on camera. You should see the pics where I was really angry...akala mo me red-eye yung camera...nope, it's fire/flame coming out of my eyeballs!!! Haha...Okie dokie, let me tag: Michelle, Gracie, Rich, Denz, Norm and Honey of Honey's in Love...why don't you show us your angry face/s and do tell why you refused to smile for the camera, will ya???

UCee....Streaming from PC to smartphone

=============================================

My husband is getting a new phone very soon which will be his business phone. Since it's going to be his business phone, he is getting one which has a Windows Mobile 6 Professional. So now he is in search of a software that he so he can connect his new phone with the computer here and the one at work. So I’ve been searching for him and I came across UCee. This software is perfect to my husband’s needs for his business because he can access photos and documents in his work computer as well as our home computer and stream videos with it. This means that he won’t be asking me to email him the needed documents or pictures anymore in the future. Aside from this benefit, he can also stream videos to show his clients during their meetings. With the new phone equipped with Ucee, I'm sure my husband's business would be much easier for him to handle.



How Filipino are you??? A Tag....

==================================
ALERT!!! There has been some development sa gauge....hehe!!!!

I’ve been tagged by Anah. She wants to know how Filipino Juliana is...ha! I think this tag originated from Zang[?]..not certain though but you can check it out. Just a bit of a background, I was born during the time that most or all of the listed items were still very much in existence. So it's either I've seen them or experienced them myself. That being said...and basing it on the first 24 items only, I got 23. I hate baggages so I don't bring boxes with me BUT I send them ahead of me. I am very Filipino...no doubt about that....and I'm proud being one!

===========================
Over time, the Filipino way of living has changed a lot, thanks to the influence of the western culture. The once-simple living has gone wonderfully sophisticated that it seems we have gradually lost the traits unique us Filipinos. Even so, we can’t and won’t deny the fact that rooted in our spirit and being is the pride that we are indeed Filipinos.
But how Filipino are you? Are the Filipino traits strong in you? Are you the typical Filipino? Take this simple quiz I have fabricated to determine your being Filipino. Read the items below and tell whether or not you do or exhibit them and count the items that are true to you. After evaluating all the items refer to the gauge below with your points. Remember to take seriously the frequencies (at least once, twice…) in the items; if you lack even one frequency, then don’t count the item.

Here it goes:

1. You can speak Filipino (erstwhile Tagalog).
2. Whenever necessary, you take the hand of an elder relative and pat the back of the palm of that hand to your forehead and say “mano po”
3. You know “bayanihan” and had witnessed it personally at least once.
4. You’ve seen a bahay kubo at least once.
5. You’ve ridden on a jeepney at least five times.
6. You have separate clothes for in-house and outside use (pambahay at panglakad)
7. You’ve eaten adobo, dinuguan, kakanin, tuyo, dilis
8. Your meal is incomplete if without rice
9. You hear Sunday masses and attend Misa de Gallo with your family.
10. You can sing “Lupang Hinirang” very well, with no lines missed.
11. You don’t care donning ragged and torn clothes exclusively for use inside home
12. You have bought items in a “sari-sari store” at least ten times
13. You have played patintero, tumbang preso and piko during your childhood.
14. You can sing at least five OPM songs, and know what OPM means
15. You know the Philippine presidents from the year of your birth onwards.
16. You have witnessed “balagtasan” at least thrice.
17. You’ve been recounted with stories involving aswang, tikbalang, manananggal, nuno sa punso.
18. You’ve been read, have read or have heard Filipino legends (Ang Alamat ng…).
19. You’ve lived, stayed or visited Philippine places other than your city or town at least seven times.
20. You’ve visited local (or public) wet market at least five times.
21. You have heard guys trying to sing Englebert Humperdink songs on a karaoke machine.
22. Your main means of expressing anger is tampo.
23. You eat with your hands or use your fork and spoon together.
24. You visit home taking with you a few balikbayan boxes.
25. You use "po" at "opo" when talking to older people.
26. You don't feel comfortable callingpeople older than you bytheir first names.
27. You know what a "karitela" and "balut", "bagoong" are.

Here’s the gauge to tell how Filipino you are: [It increases as you add your own items so adjust your gauge according to your # of items. For those that I tagged...your highest score now is 27 because of the last 3 I added. Make sense? Hopefully...]
———————————————-

22 - 24 = The Filipino blood, spirit and flame burns intensely in you. You are the typical Filipino, who takes pride of your nationality.
17 - 21 = You are proud of your being Filipino and that the traits unique to most Filipinos live in you.
13 - 16 = You are the Filipino who, even adopting strongly the cultures of other nations, still don’t forget some old ways of the Filipino life.
9 - 12 = The Filipino culture has little by little been forgotten by you. You need to at least try some of the items mentioned.
5 - 8 = The Filipino culture has substantially faded in you, or that you have not been exposed to the true, authentic traits of being a Filipino.
1 - 4 = You’re a Filipino, only that you may have not been born and raised in the Philippines and had not lived up or been accustomed to the ways of Filipino living.
0 = You’re not a Filipino.


———————————————-
Again, if you are a Filipino reader of mine - please consider yourself tagged! This does not prompt you to repost this quiz, however it would be better if you did. You have to add at least three items to the quiz, and you should tag a dozen people after your post. There are a lot of unique Filipino traits and I don’t see any reason why you can’t think of three of them. Do not copy the listed items; provide/make your own and add them to the list above. Let’s see how long the list can get.

Let's see how Filipino Emma, Nancy, Darlene, Juliana, Joyce-PinayMama, Wildcatlady29, Emzkie, Tess, Roselle, Ritchelle, Recel and Anne are! How about that ladies??? Tell us how 'Filipino you are'.....

Magazine Cover...

I was doing some rounds. I was in Gracie's page..the Shopaholic girl, ya know and I saw her entry on Mag covers. So I went and tried it. This is what came out of it... It's neat, eh? Why don't you try it???

Painfullllll......

That's how I feel right now while watching the governor of California - Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is doing a speech right now which will eventually lead to his endorsement of Senator John McCain for McCain's presidential candidacy. Oh my...it's like watching the Terminator over again. He talks just like that character..."I'll be back"!

Anyway, Rudy Giuliani is now endorsing John McCain so he is standing beside the guy while Mr. Governor is painfully delivering a speech. Ouch!

Tag Time....

===============================

It's almost TGIF! Yipee!!! Days pass by so quickly I sometimes forget what day it is. I was thinking it's still Tuesday. I just didn't notice that Wednesday passed by already. Anway, my Tukayo left me a note about these little sumthin' sumthin' she has for me in her Lair...and here they are. First one is the 'You Make My Day Award'....have not received one like this before so I'm pretty excited to get it. Thanks Tuks.

This second one that Tuks and Mommie Emma handed me, the "Biggest Heart Award", was handed to me by my cyber bwader Denz a couple of days ago. I posted it already then but I am posting it again. May reklamo??? Didn't think so...hehe...Thanks again, Lucel Juliana and Mommy Emma.

Lookey here...

========================================

With the sexy hot Momma Anne posting pics of her little angel Jadyn, I, of course, was having the "baby blues"...hehe. No, not the ones you have after giving birth just the 'envy baby blues', if there is such a thing...LOL. Hey, I'm allowed to have those, right? Especially now that I may not have another one....not that I want one at this late in life...'ya know I'm in my early/late 'tys...twentys?? thirtys??? maybe fiftys Just take a guess, ok??? Haha.

Anyway, I was going thru our little one's baby albums, as usual, and I found these 2 pics of her sleeping. I just don't understand how she could sleep like this for hours...literally. I was uncomfortable for her but she was not so I didn't dare bother her. Mind you she was at different stages of her baby life here.

The one on the left was taken when she was probably 5 months old while the one on the right was when she was almost 2 years old! See the sleeping positions? They're the same, right? Btw, she's now 5 so those pics were taken years ago...haha.

Just thought I'd post them here for fun...hehe

Florida Primary is Over and Done.....

And it looks like it's what the other candidates needed to realize they're better off just supporting instead of running for a national position. Just this morning, it was announced that Rudy Giuliani of the Republicans decided to drop out of the race and just support John McCain. As for the Democrats, the underdog John Edwards is also quitting the race. This is his second time to bid for the nation's top post. He originally wanted to run for the Presidency in 2004 but was convinced by his opponent John Kerry to join his ticket as a Vice Presidential candidate. Well, he is still young. He still has numerous chances to make his dream of becoming President a reality.

So who's left now for each party. Let's see:

Democrats still has Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama going at it. I don't think any of these 2 will give up till the last minute. Hey, maybe they will run in one ticket.

Republicans on the other hand still has 3 in the running. John McCain, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. It's a close fight for John McCain and Mitt Romney so it's probably one of these 2 who will make it in the Reps ticket. But then again it's politics so who knows. Let's jus wait and see.

Lose the Weight the Right Way

=============================================

I think a lot of mother would agree with me when I say that losing what’s known as ‘baby fat’ is one of the hardest things to get rid off. When I got pregnant, I did not gain a lot of weight when I was pregnant but I gained some. During the first few months to a year after my daughter was born, I would call still what I gained as ‘baby fat’. It’s now more than five years and I still have the “baby fat”. My husband keeps telling me that I better drop ‘baby’ from it because it’s obviously not that.

So for about 4 years now, I have been trying to find the Quickest Way To Burn Fat. I have seen a lot of advertisements on TV on how to do it but I don’t really think those are for me. Yes, it’s been long overdue for me to lose this so-called ‘baby fat’ and I want to lose the quickest way possible but I want to do it right. I have been doing some reading online and I found some informative sites but the best one I’ve come across with is this site called Weight Loss HQ. It presents a realistic way in losing weight. It has to be a combination of eating right, exercise and some other things. The site is not promising any overnight solution to the problem but instead gives those who want to lose weight the real deal. So if you want to lose weight without compromising your health or your life, check Weight Loss HQ. They might just have the best way for you to lose that unwanted pounds.

Stock Tips on your Fingertips....

Just a few days ago, my husband and I were talking about our IRA and 401K and retirement as well. We got the quarterly report of our accounts and it seems that the one we chose for our accounts are not doing any good. So he wants to do a revamp on some of them and do some other kinds of investments like mutual funds. He asked me to do some searching and guess what I found... Investment Research - TheBuyList.com . Well, it seems I don’t have to spend time researching now because I found TheBuyersList.com. With this site, I don’t have to do all the research that goes with investment. They have all the things I need to make a choice like relevant buy and sell percentages as well as comparison of one’s portfolio with mutual fund transactions. Now I know what to tell the husband when he asks about my ‘research’….check TheBuyList.com. Whew…that was easy.

Stand-out with the Help of Fast Signs

=====================================

The way I see it, the success of a business usually depends on how good the product or the service is. People will keep coming to your business if you have the best product or service around. The first step though is to get these people to try your product. One of the best ways to attract customers to a business is the use of Banners. This is what customers see first when they go around looking for something they need so if the banner stands out then people will see it and will probably go in and see what the business has to offer.

When it comes to good quality and affordable Signage, the place to go to is Fast Signs. They do different kinds of Signage that will go well with whatever business you have or planning to have in promoting. They combine technology, innovations and talented staff to come up with a stand out banner that you need to boost your business. They do Digital Printing so they produce fully enhanced colorful banners. So if you have a business that needs some boosting, check the local Fastsigns around you. They have what you need to make your business a stand out.

Biggest Heart Award...

Wow...I was about to sign off but when I passed by my blog, I saw a note from my dear cyber brother Denz. He is giving me this Biggest Heart Award. Awww.....that's really sweet of you Denz. Back atcha because I really believe that you have the biggest heart as well!!!

This goes to all of you my dear friends....you have the biggest heart for finding the time in your busy sched to come and visit me here. So, please grab it and post it on your blog to show the blogging world your BIG HEART!!!!

Re-arranging my Priorities...

===========================================

....work wise that is. I seem to have so much on my plate for the past few weeks that I kind of feel tired and burned out right now. It seems that I have not been managing my time wisely since I'm not as productive as I used to. This blogging is good and rewarding sometimes but it takes up so much time doing it. You know what I mean, aside from the blogging itself...I have to do some rounds. I feel guilty because I have not been able to visit friends as often as I used to but I try really hard to visit as much as I can.

So I am going to do some re-arranging starting today. I will still blog but I will try to limit it since I seem to be spending majority of my time doing it. My other 'rakets' are getting pushed on the sideline wherein I should be doing those more since they should be my priority. So I may not be as visible as I used to but I will be around.

To all of my regular visitors and my blogger friends, thanks for the time you spend visiting this and my other blog. Rest assured that I will still be doing my rounds. It may not be as much as I used to but as much as I can.

Make your Dream Vacation Come true...

One of our plans before my husband and I got married was to see some places around the US. He really likes for me to see some the Redwood forest in California and some places in North Carolina. But before we could even plan what to do on those trips, we got pregnant. Everything was put on hold. So far we’ve traveled once as a family. It was fun but it would have been a lot more fun if we were able to find some cheap hotels during the trip. We went to 3 different cities in California and we had to pay for 3 hotels of course. Aside from that, we didn’t know what to expect with a 3-year in tow. At least now I know of some tips on what to do when traveling with a kid. Hotels by city provides 10 family travel tips which would come handy when we go to our next travel.

Where would the next travel be? How about the Philippines? I really want to go to the famous Boracay Resort. I have only heard of stories about this place and I am from that country. With the cheap hotels that I can find through Hotels by City, I’m sure we will be able to enjoy this trip not only because it will be relaxing to us, it will also be a good treat to our wallet.


Be Creative...

Some of my first blogger friends probably remember these neat stuff that can be done with your computer and/or mouse. I'm posting them again in case you have not seen them. Just a couple. Instead of throwing these parts away, mouse, you can make something out of it first.....for fun.


Utopian Society a Dream?

I am always looking for something interesting to read. Be it books, magazines, online news or websites. I am not the type who is very vocal so I don’t really get into any kind of argument with anybody unless it involves my family. Ha! I have come across different websites from websites on working at home to websites of different political candidates. One of the websites I came across is the Stateless Society Website. To say it’s an interesting website is probably a good description. What is it? It’s a website dedicated to see fairer society. It discusses a wide range of topics from money, government. It’s different, refreshing and educational to describe it. So if you are up to read something new, different and interesting visit Stateless Society Website. And decide for yourself: Utopian Society a Dream?

Kennedys Vs.Kennedys????

Yep, you know it's election time when it's family vs. family. I just read in the news that the Kennedys just picked their candidates they want to endorse. It's just the primary and it's this exciting already.

Yesterday it was JFK's daughter Caroline Kennedy who announced she's backing Barack Obama. She even said that then today Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy just announced the same thing - he is for Barack Obama also.

Now it becomes Kennedys vs. Kennedys because Ted Kennedy's sisters Kathleen and Kerry as well as their brother Bobby are supporting Hilary Clinton. Oh no....what's going to happen now? LOL...now I am only waiting for Eunice Shriver to endorse someone. For those who don't know who Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is, she used to be Lt. Governor of Maryland....whatever than means.

There we go.......let's see what tomorrow brings....rather who endorses who...

Friends....

I got this very cute tag from one of my newest blogger friends...Wildcatlady. It's really sweet of her to hand it to me. So to you wildcatlady....thanks a bunch.




Find Real Happiness with The Sedona Method

====================================

Am I happy? Hmm…I would like to believe that I am but after reading about "The Sedona Method", I may not be as happy as I think I would like to believe. I mean I am happy but I can probably be happier, you know. We all try to be happy one way or another. We do several things to make it happen and yes, these things make us happy….temporarily. The way I see it, temporarily happiness is brought about by different reasons. Yes, these reasons are the key to temporary happiness. Once these ‘reasons’ are gone, happiness would usually go with it.
But is a ‘reason’ really needed to be happy? Can’t we be happy for no reason at all? Of course we can and that is what’s in this book titled: Happy for No Reason.


It is a book written by Marci Schinoff. She is one of the featured teachers in: The Secret. In the book she aptly compared Borneo monkeys to people. Well, not physically but how monkeys and people remain trapped in something. For the monkeys, it’s being trapped on a coconut shell simply because they wouldn’t let go of something…rice. For people, it’s being trapped with negative thoughts. It seems that for a lot people, this is the main reason why they can not achieve real happiness. Some may push these thoughts aside resulting to again, temporary happiness but once these thoughts creep back in, they are back with where they started. Interesting, isn’t it? Aside from being interesting, this book by Marci Schinoff is also very educational. So check it out at the Sedona website. They also have some free DVD and CD that anyone can get. These may just turn into your favorite DVD and CD once you get your hands on them.

Good morning ladies and gents!!! Here's wishing you all a great week ahead.

Anyway, I just joined Technorati. If you want to swap for Tech Faves, let me know here so I can add you to my list.

Thanks much and enjoy your Monday.....

Next Student can Make Your Dream Come True

=====================================

I remember being told at a young age that having an education is the best gift that I will ever receive. So I have always been adamant in finishing my college degree even if it was very stressful financially and I did. During the time that I was in college, getting a student loan consolidation was very complicated. It shouldn’t be though. Nowadays, that is no longer an issue. Student Loan Consolidation has been made as simple as possible by New Student. It is one of the largest scholarship databases at present helping a lot of students fulfill their dreams of getting an education.

This kind of loan will cover all of the student’s educational expenses because a student can get as much as $40,000 a year. So stop stressing yourself out with your college education expenses, with a Student Loan Consolidation from Next Student, you are good to go. Go on and make that dream come true.

HAPPY Weekend Everyone

It's Saturday once again. For some us, it's time to kick back and relax, but for some, like me..it's time to do some unfinished chores. Yes, since I'm home all the time, I have the tendency to put things off. That's alright....I'm not complaining. It's one of the advantages [maybe DISadvantages, depends on how you look at it] of being a WAHHM - "working at home hot momma" - ahemmm!!

So I will be off for a few. I started doing some rounds but I can't finish them all in one sitting. I promise to visit the rest throughout the day.

In the meantime, let me leave you with this....
Don't Write Your Name....

Finally.....Someone with Enough Class

...to refuse making a big spectacle out of the tragic death of Hollywood actor Heath Ledger. Anderson Cooper of CNN's 360 degrees program decided to stop reporting about the death of the actor until the toxicology result is out. This, I believe, is the best thing that a reporter has done since the tragic event happened.

It only shows that Mr. Cooper still believes in responsible journalism by refusing to create unnecessary twists to the sad event. I hope that more reporters will follow suit and stop the circus they have created themselves.

Here's a part of what Anderson Cooper wrote on his 360 Blog:

For the last two nights we have reported on actor Heath Ledger. His shocking death is clearly a story a lot of people are interested in, but tonight we will not be reporting more on it. The truth is there is not really anything new to report.
The full results of the various tests done on Mr. Ledger will not be ready for perhaps a few weeks and there is very little new information. I have no doubt other networks will spend a lot of time tonight discussing his death and the various rumors about what might have caused it, but I am not a fan of speculation, so unless there is something really new to discuss we probably won’t be covering it anymore anytime soon.”

Is your Job Recession-Proof???

====================================

Well, if you're in anything related to the housing industry, probably not. This is what those in outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas are saying. Having been directly affected with real estate roller coaster ride for the past few years, I can only agree with that. Just a few days ago, the project manager of the house we are having built was FIRED from her job. Not enough work for the builder so they had to do the cost-cutting strategy of firing those they believe are not useful in their business right now.

According to the economists at Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, the US is on its way for a full blown recession in 16 years. Surprising? Not quite because a whopping 57% believe that we are in recession already.

So What are these industries they are saying will not be affected if the big "R" indeed happens [or is happening already]??? Education, Energy, Health Care, Environmental Sector, Security and International Business. The first 5 are kind of self explanatory. Take for instance Education, there will always be students to teach believe it or not even if all these high tech ways of learning are keep popping up. I was able to teach online for 3 years and I was able to do it in the comfort of my home. So I am not a bit surprised that education-related jobs is in the list of the recession-proof jobs. Maybe I should go back to my teaching job, eh? But with the last one - international business - I can say that I am surprised. A lot of businesses are closing down but then again, it's international. Per the article, as long as you know the tricks in running an international busines, then you can actually survive this economic slump we're in right now.

Floors of Your Dreams at wfca.org

======================================
One of the first things I notice whenever I visit a house is the floor. I am not judging the dwellers though by the floor in their house but I have always been fascinated by the flooring of a house. In our house, I always make it a point to clean the floor because I don’t feel that it’s clean unless the floor is clean. That may seem weird to other people but that’s just how I feel. One of the sites I’ve come across with vast information about flooring is the World Floor Covering Association. At wfca.org, one can find flooring stores that can meet his or her heart’s desire.

I grew up with wood floors. This is probably why I am bias when it comes to wood flooring. When I was younger, I spent hours and hours a week making sure our wood floor was shiny. At WFCA.org, they explain different kinds of wood floors and why people like me are drawn to these kinds of floorings. And if these pieces information about floor is not enough, at wfca.org you will be able to design rooms virtually in their virtual room designer. That means that I will be able to see how the floor would look like in my house before I choose it. Isn’t that cool?
So if you are planning in getting new floors or having a new house built like us, World Floor Covering Association is the place to be. I’m sure you will have fun like me in seeing the rooms in your house with the floors that you choose way before the floors are installed.


Goodnight Everyone!!!!

Let me sign off with this message I got from a friend of mine.

Kingco....an Online Tree Nursery

====================================

One of the things I didn’t have when I was growing up is a garden. We just didn’t have the space or the time have one. I remember planting some plants around our house when I was elementary. I really took care of them. One thing that I have always admired is topiary. I think I first saw this in the movie Edward Scissorshands. It was neat seeing all those plants shaped into different animals or characters.

I wouldn’t say I have a green thumb but I planted before and they made it until I neglected them due to my busy schedule. Now that I am a stay at home mom, I have some time in my hands so I have been checking some online sites that’s all about plants and garden like kingco.co.uk. It's an online tree nursery that features all kinds of plants. Not only do they have all the plants and trees in their website, they also have Garden Design Ideas that one can use as a basis for his or her own garden.

Just like everything else, putting up a garden also has some restrictions that should be followed. To learn more about the dos and donts in your garden, read this manual called Over Garden Hedge. So if you are in and around the UK area and you want to start or to add up to your garden, visit kingco.co.uk for all your needs.

Aha...Work CAN really KILL You!!!!

=======================================

Work-related stress to be more specific. And I thought it's just a popular saying. Now it's been "proven" that, yes, work-related stress can actually kill a person. Well, that's based on a findings on a study that been's going on for years. Who was involved in the study you may ask?? Me! Not quite. They actually had 10,000 British civil servants. I wonder if the result can be applied to us here in the US.

Anyway, the most affected by this are people who are..get this, under 50. Oh now I can't wait until I turn 50, then I won't be included in the and I can stress myself as much as I want to. Hehe. Do you think factors brought about by stress contributed to this findings? Of course. Those who are stressed have the tendency to drink, smoke and eat more. I didn't think a study is needed to know that.

So now you know. Stop chasing those opps or you may just end up in the hospital....kidding...

See America with the Help of Trusted Tours & Attractions

============================================

Being from another country, I always wanted to go on sightseeing tours here in America. But before I had the chance on doing that I got pregnant with our little girl. We’ve been on tours but only locally. We are in Florida so I really want to go on Orlando tours. So we planned on going first to Disney World. We did but the trip going there made us realize that next time we go on a tour, we would look for places like Trusted Tours. Why? Because the trip would probably have been a lot easier and less stressful. What happened was my husband who would normally print out a map on long trips like that did not do it that time. It’s understandable because it’s only a 2-hour drive from our place to Disney World in Orlando. Well, that 2 hour trip became a 4 hour trip because we couldn’t find Disney World. So instead of enjoying the trip, my husband had his migraine attack.

So yes, lesson was learned. So for you out there who are planning in taking trips, make sure you check Trusted Tours first before going in one. They are having an ongoing promotion: Win Handheld GPS - Newsletter. All you have to do is sign up for their newsletter and you will have a shot for that Handheld GPS. How I wish we went to Trusted Tours & Attraction before we went on that trip. Well, it’s not too late yet, I still want to go on tours so I better sign up for that newsletter. I may win that Handheld GPS, then we won’t need any more maps whenever we want to go on a trip.




Irresponsible Journalism???

======================================

I posted in my other blog about the demise of Heath Ledger. He was a 28-year old Aussie actor who's been one of the in-demand actors in Hollywood. Per the news that have been printed, they still don't know what caused his sudden death and it will take 10 days for the toxicology test results.

Since he was a well-known celebretiy worldwide, different news agencies are trying to sensationalize his sudden death by coming up with their own twist of this sad and tragic end. What blows me away is they would air / print snippets of his past interviews making it look like he was relating something that he's not. These snippets, particularly him talking of death and his daughter, make it appear that he's like giving hints of what's to come....meaning his death. But if you go over the whole interview, he was just talking how his being a dad had changed his outlook about death.

Someone died and there's now a little girl who will grow up not knowing her father as much as she should. I just wish that these reporters would stick to what's real instead of coming up with twisted facts.

People.com

Optical Illusions???

Take a look at the following picture! First, it is not animated. Are your eyes making it move?

To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving!! Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop mov ing! But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it!! Weird, huh ???

Awards....Tada.....

===========================











I think Rich is spoiling with all these awards. Hear that, Rich? Now you have to tag or give me awards everyday. Just kidding, my fwend. Thanks for giving me these 2 awards. It's really sweet of you to give me these 2 awards.

Now, let me hand these 2 awards to Ms Roselle, Tukayo, and Mommy Emma!

Busy Tuesday....

=====================================

Well, this time it's not related with my work. I'm busy going through bunches of papers. Sorting, shredding and filing papers the whole morning. This is probably one of my favorite things to do but it sure is very tiring just sitting on my bum for hours.

I am trying to find and sort all the papers that my husband needs for a meeting regarding the upcoming trial of the house builder who screwed more than 100 families of money resulting to broken dreams and depleted savings. The now so-called 'bankrupt' [I don't believe he is indeed bankrupt] builder, Coral Bay Construction, Inc., promised to build numerous houses for 140 families and failed short of that promise. Unfortunately, we are one of the many families that have been fighting an uphill battle since 2006, legally that is. It has been an uphill battle for us personally since we signed the papers in late 2004.

Instead of facing the music and taking responsibility for his actions, Steven Bartlet, chose the easy way out and filed for bankruptcy. That of course left us with no house and no money all because of this man's selfishness. We cannot sue him simply because he filed for Chapter 11 but the State can as long as they can prove that he used the money he got from us on himself. That's exactly what they State Attorney's office found out thus the case of Grand Theft against him. He was arrested on Nov. 10, 2006 but posted bail [of course] of $10,000...probably USING OUR MONEY!!

Please keep us in your thoughts as we fight this 'monster'. It won't be an easy feat but I still believe in Karma...for every action, there is a always a reaction. I believe that there's a reason for everything. We may not know what it is now but it doesn't mean that there isn't.

Favorite Love Song....a Tag!

Mommy Darlene tagged me. It's a hard tag because just everybody else here, I like a lot of songs. But I'll think about it para kay Mommy Darlene. Thanks much! Tagging...Nancy and Yza.

~ Start Copy ~

Here are the rules :
1. Please write your favorite love song, and what's the story behind it?
2. Please include your name and your URL blog.
3. Share this tag to your friends as much as you can.
4. Copy from "Start Copy" until "End Copy

"My favorite song is "Endless Love". Because I sang this song as a surprise for my love on our engagement party - Nyumix

With me, my favorite song is Korean Drama Soundtrack songs ;-) My favorite are Winter Sonata, Lovers in Paris, Full House, Love Letter, etc too much i don't remember the the title. Why? Because they all nice to hear over and over again - Juliana RW

My favorite song is "Heaven" by DJ Sammy and Yanou. The songs tells so much about me and my husband - Liza

For me, i love so many so many songs - from kiddie songs to romantic love songs. But let me share with you 2 songs that stands out from everyone. ONe is YOU ARE MY SONG by Martin Nievera and the other one is LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE by Celine Dion. I picked fav songs thru its lyrics (inspiring) and music (mellow). - Arlene

One of my favorite songs is Nearness of You. I like the original one and version of Norah Jones. I just love the lyrics and I just want to stop and appreciate the song whenever I hear it being played. - Rachel

I've got lots of songs that i really love but for this meme i can only choose one. So for this meme i would say that my favorite love song is I'll Stand By You by version of Gina Glocksen. I love the lyrics and very inspiring song to me. I just couldn't get tired of keep listening this song over and over again. - Darlene

Hmmm....how about "Bakit Ikaw Pa"...hehe. Seriously, I am having a hard time coming up with just one. How about Shania Twain's "You're Still the One"? I like the lyrics and the melody and it's easy to sing. - Juliana

Golf Accessories

=================================

Golf is probably a game I will never learn. Well, maybe I would but it will take some time to teach me I bet. But I have some friends who love this game. Funny thing is even if they are not playing, you would still see them ‘hitting’ an imaginary ball with an ‘imaginary’ bat. I guess that’s how addicting the game is. My brother has also started playing this game not too long ago. So when I asked him what he wants for his birthday later this month he didn't think twice, yes, something for golf. So off I went searching for golf bags first because that’s number one on his list. I found quite a few online so I decided to choose a couple that I can show my husband so we can decide together. I found these bags at golfballsandaccessories.com. Here they are.























While I was at the site, I also browsed for golf balls. They have a lot of golf balls, both brand new ones and used ones. They have use Callaway golf balls that they sell for as low as $7.99 a dozen which are still in very good conditions. That is a steal in my opinion. Since Callaway golf balls are a must for golfers, I’m sure my dear brother would be thrilled once I tell him about these golf balls. Hey, a golfer can never have enough golf balls, right?

New England Patriots IS Still Undefeated!!

===================================

Yes, the New England Patriots is on its way to the Superblowl...again! This will the 4th time that Tom Brady is leading the Patriots for another shot to the Superbowl. He led the team in winning 3 Superbowl games so it won't be a surprise if he does it again this time.

They defeated the San Diego Chargers today with a score of 12 - 21 to win the AFC title for the 4th time in 7 years. This win against the Chargers didn't come easy though as Brady had some less impressive throws in the game. Randy Moss was not the shining star he was during the other games either. I guess this just shows that it's still a team effort to win, huh?

So now we wait as to which team they will be playing against come Superbowl XLII on February 3, 2008 in Glendale, Arizona. If it were me...it has to be the team I've been rooting for this season....the Green Bay Packers, woo hoo!! I'm not from Green Bay but I really want Brett Favre to win the Superbowl this year so that if he decides to retire, he's doing it in style complete with a Superbowl ring!

So Go Packers!!!! LOL....

Now He's in the Ellen Show...

========================================

I knew it!! Remember this entry from yesterday? Well, I am now watching the Ellen Show and guess who was mentioned in the show when Ellen talked about the American Idol premiere....yes, Renaldo Lapuz.

I guess he's going to be another William Hung. Remember him? He's probably the most famous non-finalist in AI history. Mr. Lapuz may just give him a run for his money now though. They usually have a lot of "unusual" wannabes [sorry for the word] during the AI auditions but they chose Mr. Lapuz to feature in the Ellen show. As expected, he has numerous You Tube videos now. There are 5 pages with 20 frames on each page, I think...about 100 You Tube Videos last time I checked.

Oh, based on some of the You Tube I've seen so far, Mr. Lapuz may be a Filipino, yes a kababayan. Maybe I should star thinking about auditioning at AI myself, huh? Who knows, I may end up at the Ellen Show... the Tonight with Jay Leno or maybe even at Oprah's Show! Should I?

Fool.co.uk....a to-go-to for UK Mortgages

====================================

Finding a good mortgage company is the first step in making one’s dream of owning a house a reality. It’s crucial to find a company that is honest and forward about the mortgage process. We decided to have our house built in 2003. We knew we won’t have a problem looking for companies that give mortgages so we started looking for a builder first. We found one and they recommended a mortgage company that they do a lot of business with. We listened and without going through the details, listening to them was probably our worst mistake ever.

As a result, I now make it a point to tell my story to friends all over the world. I believe that what happened to us can happen to anybody anywhere. My friend in the UK is now planning of buying their very first house. And yes, I gave her my unsolicited advice. Since she’s in the UK, she would have to get a UK mortgage. I told her to make sure that they get mortgage quotes first before jumping into anything.

One place where they can find everything about mortgage deals is fool.co.uk. This place should be their first stop because they have all the information needed by people who are dealing with mortgage like a free mortgage guide and they can compare different mortgages here as well. So if you are in the UK looking into getting a mortgage, visit fool.co.uk first before you make a decision, It may just be the best decision you’ll ever make.

Renaldo Lapuz...American Idol???

Ok..I'm not sure how to react on this one. I blogged about Charice Pempengco and Alec Mapa so I thought I'd put this here as well. This is Renaldo Lapuz who they said is from Nevada. He went to the American Idol Audition in Texas. He was featured on the show's premiere which aired on January 16, 2008. He sang his "own" composition and the judges had fun 'making fun' of him. Simon even predicted that the song he sang will be big hit...LOL..kinda' like William Hung!

My question...is he a Filipino??? I 'think' he is but I'm not certain. Here's the You tube video. See it for yourself.

Huh???

=====================================

I just read in one online Entertainment magazine Just Jared that 'allegedly' AP, yes Associated Press, has already started writing Britney Spears' obituary!!! Of course this is just what I read but if this is true, whoever started that is just , in my opinion, heartless.

Granted that Britney Spears is spiralling out of control nowadays, I just don't think that anybody should be writing an obituary for her. That is just plain insensitive. AP should instead give this girl some positive advise. Not preparing an obituary for her.

The way that USmagazine.com wrote the article "The AP Has Written Britney Spears' Obituary , it seems to be true. They have an interview with the Entertainment editor of Associated Press. Wow...cruel is what is it.

A Wonder Boy???

I woke up with an email from a good friend. Attached is the video below. I have no idea who the little boy is but the song is way too powerful not to share. If you've seen it before and you know who sang it or you know of its origin, please let me know so I can give the credit where it's due. Thanks and enjoy.

Very Late Update

Wow! I have not updated this blog today. That's odd! I always update it but today I got caught up with some things. Aside from that, no opps for this blog because its PG went down while the other one went up. So if you visit my other blog, you will probably notice that I have some entries there today.

Anyway, my katukayo, Lucel Juliana, left me a short note in the tag board. She noticed I don't have anything new on this blog today...sorry Tukayo. Hehe. I'll try to update it tomorrow. I have one opp that I need to do here anyway so I'd probably do that tomorrow.

I'm about to fall over my laptop so I will be signing off now. For those who came to visit, thanks much. I will try to do some rounds tomorrow. I'll see you then!

World's Thinnest Notebook -- MacBook Air

This is the newest project of Apple, Inc. that their CEO Steve Young just launched. Look how thin it is. It's about three quarters of an inch thick rather thin. It is an aluminum-clad laptop called :MacBook Air. Hmm...is it because it as light as air, maybe?

I really like things that look sleek and thin like this new laptop but I'm not so sure about this one. I'm afraid I might get a paper cut if start using this one. I'm not sure how much this one will go for but basing it on the prices of Apple laptops, it wouldn't be cheap.

So for now, I'm sticking with my thick but kinda' dependable lappy. I'll try that one when I have a couple of thousands that I don't really need.
