Annoying as it is

Isn't it annoying knowing that people talk bad about you?

Right at this moment, I am annoyed. I learned from someone that some people were criticizing me over small things...from my weight to my pimples and etc. The heck! Don't they have nothing to talk about? Why make a big fuss over these?! My imperfections makes me who I am but it does hurt knowing that people are really judgmental considering that you don't even know them and it hurts even more if you knew these creeps and have treated them nicely. Geez, give me a break and mind your own business!

Thinking maturely

I have been compensated with my blogging. And right now, I am thinking on what to do with it. I was thinking of making an investment. Participate in stock market perhaps or invest in mutual funds. But I still have a lot to learn about those. Besides that, I just wanted to save it in the bank for future purposes or better yet purchase a term life insurance which I think is a good investment. Anyways, my earnings' not that much yet. Let's wait and see in the coming days.

I won again!


This time I didn't only won a cash prize, I also won a Journey CD Album from Rate My Philippines. They've been running this contest monthly and you still have a chance to win this month. Weee...thank you for the contest guys! You've been so nice.

A chance to win a laptop

Waiting for opportunities can be time consuming. It's even frustrating to find an available opportunities and when you tried to bid for it, the slot suddenly became full because you're internet connection loads like crap. As a blogger earner, high speed internet is a must in order to bid opportunities successfully since the competition gets tougher.

I also find it time consuming to drop my entrecard cards to various blogs due to poor internet connection. It's tiring to wait your browser loads and there are even instances that your computer will hang. Haay.

Charter_laptop

Purchasing from Charter communications will be a good buy. They offer a Charter High-Speed® Internet at $19.99/mo for 6 months, Charter Digital Home™ and High-Speed Internet at $69.98/mo for 6 months or Charter Digital Home™, High-Speed Internet, and Charter Telephone® at $99.97/mo. for 12 months. What's more exciting is, after purchasing from them, you will be given a gas ("shell") card and you will automatically have a chance to win a HP Compaq Presario C770US Laptops. Charter Laptop-a-Day Giveaway will be giving away 30 laptops and you can get a chance to win one of these. What a great treat, isn't it?! Blogging will now be easier and more fun to do.

Harvey and JC Bonding

JC is really amusing. Haha. Really a fun kid to watch. Earlier, my dog Harvey has been barking outside. Since it's not his meal time yet, we assumed that he wants to pee. And so we jokingly told our baby JC to assist Harvey outside. Surprisingly, he did what he was told to do. What an obedient kid he was! LOL. We just watched and observed him. He untied Harvey, and Harvey seemed to understand what JC was doing and he was just patiently waiting for JC to be done. I guess Harvey already likes JC, huh? And JC as a 2 year old kid, is not even afraid of Harvey. He even gave Harvey his water when he sees his bowl empty. How shweet! Anyways, here's the picture I took of both of them as well as the video with his bloopers in it. Haha.

Preparing for battle

Battle as in battle of the brains. LOL. In 2 months time, we will be having our case presentation but at present, we still didn't have a single clue on what case to present. Haay. I hate case presentations because I have a phobia speaking infront of a crowd. So I often find myself stuttering in cases like this. What's worst is defending your case. God, I'm scared of the panel! Haha. Spare me from embarassment!

Anyways, I have been thinking that one of us should have a laptop in our group for documentation as well as for research. Speaking about research, we do need an internet connection. Where the heck, can we get that? Aside from that, we also need a digital camera for taking pictures which is a part of our documentation, as well as color laser printer for printing our documents. And of course we need a spare toner cartridges in case we ran out of ink.

Projectors are also necessary during the presentation to make it easier for us to present our case in front of the audience through power point. I hope we could borrow one. I do hope our presentation will come out smoothly and smartly presented. How I wish! Good luck to us! Anyway, superwarehouse dot com is offering these products at an affordable prices. Do check it out!

Thinking business

Computers are already a part of our lives, and I mean the life of my brother and I. Since we were kids we were already hooked up with computers. Back then, the "in" thing were game boy, family computer and game & watch. Remember? And "Mario Brothers" was our favorite game.

On the other hand, my father is into electronics. He's also fond with videoke, it was in the form of VHS tape and betamax several years back. But now, speaking about modernization, videoke has been upgraded. The trend now consists of magic sing as well as megavision. Name some more, guys! With these, my father decided to come up with a videoke business, the coin slot thingy where you usually see in eateries. Aside from videoke, he also ventured to computer games. Same thing with the videoke where people would insert coins in order to play. He started making these things with the help of my uncle and some friends. Now, were making money out of it. Talk about passion and business.

Chillin' Out at Fagioli

You may have noticed that I've been raving about Fagioli Coffee Shop. I've been a fan of their coffee, pastries and pasta since I first visited them. They've never disappointed me so far. And again, after strolling around the city for the kadayawan, we went to Fagioli to eat.

Leaking faucet

Do you know how it feels when you hear your faucet's leaking? Tried to ignore the leaking faucet in our toilet at home but the more I tried to ignore it, the leaking sound seemed getting louder. Haay. It was irritating to my ears not to mention giving me a headache. Grrr. Thankfully, my cousin made his initiative to repair it. Although we're not obliging him, but truth is, he's the only one who knows how to repair faucets. And voila! The leaking's gone.

Sconces

If only we have a bigger house, I would definitely suggest to my parents to provide a room for home theater. Watching movies is one of our past times at home and it would be nice to watch it with home theater sconces and feel like watching it in cinemas. This is a great alternative to watch movies with family and friends as cinema fees are getting expensive. It' not just cheaper, it's more entertaining and more comfortable. Don't you agree?

Flower Festival the Continuation

This is the continuation of our trip to agro trade fair during the kadayawan festival. Earlier I've posted photos of the participants of the landscaping contest. This time I'll be sharing with you my macro shots of orchids still taken in that same place. Proudly Davao!

Flower Festival

Floral float parade is one of the highlights of the Kadayawan Festival. I'm not really fond of watching it live in the streets because it's really congested with people plus I can't tolerate the scorching heat of the sun. So I planned to go to SM carpark instead to see the floats being parked there as I assumed.

My boyfriend and I were searching for the floats at the carpark to no luck so we ended up strolling around the agro trade fair located at SM carpark. Who gave us the idea that the floats were there anyway?

The trade fair consists of flowers and other ornaments as well as food, poultry, birds and other stuffs being shown and sold there. Went to this area where a contest in landscaping was being exhibited. Paid an entrance fee of ten pesos per head to get inside that place. Was interested to see lots of flowers inside and I thought this is a great place to take pictures. Indeed it was! So here were the shots I took...

Phelps is the man!



Michael Phelps, the olympic swimmer who just happened to win 8 gold medals for the events he participated in, has indeed made an outstanding job as an athlete. Was able to watch some of his events and I couldn't help but agree that he definitely is a very talented swimmer. He swims like a fish and has a body like a fish. Haha. Regard it as a compliment though. But really, he's now my new idol since I am a frustrated swimmer. Haha.

We're talking about hosting

A friend and I are currently talking about hosting sites. He's planning to purchase a web hosting and domain for his website. I'm currently being hosted by blogger, and it's free. As of now, I have no intentions of buying one since it's kinda expensive and can't afford it. Hehe. Although I bought domains for my blogs, I think that's the most I can do. Hehe.

On the other hand, if you happen to be interested in web hosting, there are a lot you can choose from online. And there are sites that could help you find the web hosting you need. They rate some web hosts from their features and services as well from the feedback from users. There you'll know how efficient and appropriate that certain host for you. Try to google it and check it for yourself.



Madayaw Dabaw

"Madayaw Dabaw!" literally means "Welcome to Davao". It's a holiday for all Davao residents. It's Kadayawan Festival, also known as Flower Festival. People flocked all over the metro to catch a glimpse of the parade and some activities in stored by the local government. I wanted to see the parade and take pictures of the street dance, "Indak-indak". But it's way too hot to go out. Haay.

I'm also still sleepy and have no energy to stroll around the city. I need to catch on my sleep and take a rest. Hehe. I should have brought JC with me. He will definitely enjoy strolling around.

Support for Incontinence

There are certain diseases that cause incontinence. Usually urinary incontinence is the common disorder. This is where the person have no control on when he/she will urinate. It is the condition where there is loss of bladder control which leads to leakage of urine. It is a distressing problem for most people. In order to compensate with this problem there are available incontinence supplies that you can buy as bulk orders if you prefer. This helps you keep hygienic despite of the underlying problem you have.

Pearlies

"Don't buy pearls for yourself. Let others buy it for you. Otherwise you'll never get married." Have you heard about this? Is there truth to this? I even bought one for me before, but that wasn't a real pearl. Haha.

Anyways, I'm fond of wearing pearl earrings. I think most of the ladies does because you'll look good while wearing it. You'll really look very feminine and classy with it most especially if you'll be wearing Tahitian pearls. That is why girls love it!

I got slapped!

Some of you may have noticed my page rank by now. Was too happy I got a PR4 during Google's last update and was overwhelm with the opportunities I had back then so I readily grabbed it. And I think because of that, with too much paid reviews, Google slapped me!

Ouch!!!
Now I got a PR2. At least I got a two, haha. Nver mind, I'm still being optimistic, huh? And even though I was slapped, I'm still thankful with the opportunities that I am receiving. c",)

To Whom It May Concern

I'd like to thank everyone for dropping by my blog even though I am not that active as compared before. Been busy with my clinical training and since I'm out of town, I only have limited access to the internet since I am only renting it in an internet cafe, and their connection's crap.

I appreciate the link exchange requests, and I apologize if it took me a while to reply. I'll add your links when I arrive home tomorrow.

Missed a lot of opps

Haven't been online yesterday since I was really dead tired from duty so I decided to regain some energy by sleeping. By doing so made me missed a lot of opps from social spark. Haayy.

Anyways, I'm excited to go home tomorrow. I am supposed to be on duty tomorrow but I decided to absent since I have things to inquire in one of the hospitals in Davao City. And the office is only open on weekdays.

Actually, an agency called me up yesterday morning for a phone interview. He received my resume through jobstreet and since I'm qualified, he's offering me the job at Miami, Florida under Guardian. Guardian is the employer according to him. And since the processing of my papers will take at least 2 years, for the time being, if I accept their offer, I can avail of the special program in the two hospitals in Davao. It's like these hospitals will train you for like two years but with pay. And Guardian, the employer, will be the one to pay for the salaries. So it's like you will also be working as a staff. Hmm. I think it was a good deal. So I have to inquire about that tomorrow.

But then, I still need to check about the services and the benefits this agency has to offer. As well as the condition if I will join the program. Will there be any salary deductions later on? Well I will be bind with them for 3 years if I'll take it. I was asking him to email me but haven't received one yet. Anyways, if you happen to hear about this Fil-Overseas Agency please hit me back. I need feedbacks. c",)

VTachs

It was a toxic shift I had last night. I was the only trainee on duty that time and a staff with me. We received 6 patients from the endorsement, 2 of which were intubated. During the endorsement, the patient from Bed 1 had a Ventricular Tachycardia showing in his cardiac monitor. Ventricular Tachycardia or VTach is life threatening. The patient became cyanotic just in seconds. Defibrillation is the common intervention given. It is usually done by the physician. The patient recovered.

As our shift progresses, that same patient went into VTach again for like 5 times in our shift. During the second time, I was left alone in the unit because the staff has to see the physician to refer another patient's case. The watcher of bed 1 yelled for help and seeing that I was alone, I hurriedly dialed the number of the Medicine Conference Room where the residents stay. Unfortunately, no one answered and I started to panic. I instructed the patient to breathe slowly and deeply while preparing the defibrillator machine, just plugged it since I didn't how to charge it yet. Haha. Anyways, after which, the staff arrived and I yelled for help and she quickly called for a resident on duty at the Medcon Room. Haay.

Aside from the VTach incident, we also had two patients intubated making our shift very toxic. Left the unit around quarter to 12 am, and supposedly I shouldn't leave yet since I have to help the staff do some after care of the equipments we used. But it was kind of her to ask me to leave since it was way too late already as I still have to commute back home. Haayy, I can't imagine working in that area where only one staff is on duty. *Sweat.

Biking


Just this afternoon, I was bored sitting while watching the kids play some games outside our subdivsion's chapel. Fortunately, Athea, our next door neighbor suggested to rent a bike from one of our neighbors for P5 for an hour. Cool! It's been years thatI last rode a bike and I readily agreed with her idea.

We spent that one hour strolling around the subdivision and it's neighboring villages. It's a good cardio and I did sweat. Hehe. Feels like going back to my childhood years biking with my friends. *Sigh.

Ashley's back!

I was caught in surprise when I saw my niece, Ashley, at our home sometime this month. She was supposedly be in their home in Netherlands. Actually they just left last summer and now their back again in just a short time.

As usual, she was placed in her
pushchair while strolling around the neighborhood. She seemed comfortable with her baby pushchair and even JC wanted to ride it with her. Haha. We could have bought one for JC if he has been with us when he was still younger. There's a lot of baby pushchairs and even pram available in the malls these days. He could have looked adorable in it.

Babies really look cute and comfy in it. They're even kept shaded from the sun's rays, which is a good thing. It would be easier for moms to spend their day with their kids in the park or in the malls without carrying their babies in their arms. Both of them will definitely have fun bonding together. Just like my cousin and Ashley. Ashley always tags along with her mom even in the grocery. How cool is that? I bet when Ashley will grow up, she'll love to do some grocery. Hehe. Isn't it a good training?!

Freaking interview

Been to Apo View Hotel for an interview from a possible employer abroad. Honestly, I have doubts with the agency since I had heard some not good feedbacks from some friends about them, irony is, it's licensed by the POEA.

Anyway, the recruiter was my godmother's friend, her classmate back in college. She was the one who referred me to her, so I sent all my requirements to the address provided by my godmother. I didn't know back then that she is connected with the agency that I least like.

We had an orientation first before the interview took place. Basically the recruiter explained to us the services she offered then came next the agency's services. It was a good deal, I guess. What relieved me was to see the picture of one of my clinical instructor in college during the presentation, I didn't know she was under this agency and somehow my doubts lessen.

Moving on, as the orientation was about to end, we were asked to sign an "Undertaking" before we could be accomodated for the interview. I think it's like a contract agreeing that this agency will be doing the processing for you and so on. At first, I was hesitant. I wanted somebody to read the agreement with me and decide whether the offer is good or not. I did text my godmother but unfortunately her reply came late.

When the agency informed us that we have 30 days to withdraw from the signed agreement if we wished not to continue with the deal, I gave in and signed it thinking that I was there for the interview. The recruiter was nice and I have trust in her considering she's a friend of my godmother, but the agency is different, I still have doubts and I was scared when I received my godmother's text telling me not to sign any contract yet since she wanted to read it herself. *Sigh.

Goodbye zits

Right now, I am starting to worry since I will be having my monthly visitor soon. It's a girl stuff and I think you already have a clue of what I am talking about.

Anyway, why am I worried? It is because when this time is approaching, I will be experiencing what we call, "Premenstrual syndrome", wherein there will mood swings and some tenderness in my body and the least I like is having pimple breakouts. Usually, I have this big pimples and it is usually situated in the area around my nose where it is very visible. Haay. So by this time, I am preparing for this crisis to occur by investing on effective
pimple cream to combat it. Then it will be great time for me to say goodbye to zits!

Trends in sports

Was able to do some window shopping last night in the mall. They had this 3 day sale and last night they were open until midnight. People flocked in the mall since aside from the mall wide sale, some guests and performances were held in the atrium. There was even a dance contest, and they call it the Fish Dance. What the hell is that? This is the first time I encounter such term. I'm curious how it looks like. Haha.

Been to various shops inside the mall looking for an attire that I will be wearing today. Aside from that, went to some sports shop and look over their shoes and bags on sale. Seen this nice
golf bags inside. They even have one for ladies and they look trendy. How I wished I was hooked into golf so I could buy one for myself. Hehe. Anyways, my window shopping ended up in Fagioli where I ordered a Pesto and Tiramisu. Very yummy and my cousin was very pleased that I introduced her to the place since she really likes pasta and she was dying to find a pasta place in Davao where she could she enjoy her pasta. Indeed, she already found one in Fagioli.

ABC...no I mean ABG

I had the opportunity to take an ABG from a comatose patient yesterday. I was eager to try since it has been months that I last took an ABG.

ABG stands for arterial blood gas. A blood is being extracted from the patient's artery so you'll find the nurse or physician looking for a pulse where they can draw the blood. Admittedly, I have a weak sense of touch, I think I do. The time I took the ABG, I had a clear feel of the patient's pulse. By the way, the artery isn't visible so you will be relying on the patient's pulse.

After doing so, I disinfect the area and injected the heparinized syringe onto the skin and unfortunately no backflow was seen. It only means I didn't hit the artery so I let the nurse on duty do the thing. *Sweat. More practice and I hope I'll succeed it the next time around.

Let's siiing, siinngg!

It's nice to have your own music room inside your home where you could furnished it with home theater appliances making it conducive for entertainment and watching movies with your family and friends, just like watching it in cinemas. You will greatly appreciate every sound even at it's small details.

Most likely you will need a 6 inch indoor outdoor loud speakers for a sure exceptional sound quality. You can even use it outdoors for parties. I bet your guests would be dancing with every beat and sing with it's every tune that they hear from these speakers.

You will find yourself as being the host of parties most of the time because of your exceptional speakers that keeps the party alive. Your home will surely be the top hang out place of your friends. By now, you should keep your fridge filled with food and beverages always to feed your guests, especially your gate crashers. Haha.


Tired of political news

My father often says we have to watch and listen to the daily news to keep ourselves updated with the latest issues. It's true, and I agree. I was able to keep myself updated with the current events, sports, and even showbiz buzz. Haha.

I was fond of watching CNN before when we still have a cable tv. Because it's not only the top story news I could get to watch, but also news about the latest technology and latest fashion trends as well as travel. Anyways, now that we only have a local channel, I can only watch local news. Watching it as days goes by makes me sick! Not because they have bad reporters or scripts but because I'm tired of watching political news and watch those politicians argue with each other for their own personal gains. *Sweat. You could see the crab mentality that is evident between those people. Is that what you call good and ideal politicians? I bet not.

Collaborating

It's a good thing to work on teams. In this way, you all can contribute and share your ideas in your project. The tasks would be divided among the groups, thus being able to work efficiently and faster.

Although there are also some downsides, one particular that I know of is on how to unify the team and how to motivate each and everyone of the team to work at their best since some might become lazy soon thus delaying the project to fulfill.

Individual works of each member can also be hard to monitor and supervise, thus we need to have some project collaboration tool. This tool can help the team leader see the progress and how the team spends time in the project. You'll definitely stop worrying over projects that hasn't been done since you can start getting things done. What's great about this is that the members could also see the progress of the project and the things that has to be done, leaving no room for forgetfulness.

Augmented stars

A lot of celebrities nowadays have undergone breast augmentation to enhance their appearance. Even local celebrities does the same as well as ordinary people. So why undergo the procedure? Aside from enhancing one's physical appearance, it also can boost one's self esteem, thus driving away insecurity and inferiority.

There are various skillful surgeons around the globe that can perform this procedure. So if you're residing in California and may want to have this procedure, you can google "breast augmentation Beverly Hills California" to find surgeons for this procedure. Keep in mind that undergoing this procedure requires you to be in a good physical condition to make you a good candidate for this. You will be given health teachings before and after the procedure. During the procedure, a breast implant will be placed inside that is filled with saline solution. Informations regarding this implant will be discussed by your surgeon during the time of your surgery.

Hair loss no more

As this statement goes, "Our hair is our crowning glory", true or not?

Although there are successful and happy bald people, for others, losing your hair degrades one's esteem. It might be true for the majority, even I for instance would feel insecure and conscious if this happens to me. As we age, we are more conscious of how we look and we want to look younger than our age, apparently hair loss makes us look more mature. There are also several factors that leads to hair loss.

There are various hair treatments available in the market today, seeking medical help would even costs a lot. But if you happen to live in Philadelphia or in New Jersey, or may even have the plan to go there, you can find some Philadelphia hair transplants to help you restore your hair. Ethical and skillful surgeons can help you with that restoration. So say goodbye to baldness, say hello to your new hair!

On being the charge nurse

During our duty yesterday, we were asked who wants to work as a charge nurse for our shift. I volunteered myself to be the charge nurse because for one, I get confused with their paperworks and documentations and I think, it would be the best way for me to familiarize myself with the different logbooks and slips and whatsoever you need to fill up, as well as the carrying out of doctor's orders. Although I've experienced working as a charge nurse from my previous trainings, but as we all know, each institutions has their own set of protocols.

I admit it was confusing, especially the part where you have to follow up with the laboratory works and requests. There were times I was disorganized. *Sweat. Good thing we had a considerate and approachable staff to supervise and teach us. I hope I could keep up. c",)

My Stupid Self

Yay, I'm not only lazy but stupid as well. Since last week, I've been worrying about my incoming interview since it falls on weekdays, and during weekdays, I have my duty. I don't want to be absent from my duty but because I also have to try on this interview, I informed my senior that I won't be reporting this day.

I was lazy to get out of bed this morning since I was really tired from yesterday's duty and travel. But because I have this so-called interview, I forced myself to get up and get ready. Went to the location that was emailed to me and surprisingly, I didn't find any name of the company in the hotel's day bulletin for the day's activities. *Sweat.

Went back in our shop and rechecked my email and POOF! The interview is still on August 17 and not today. Waaa. Stupid me!

Delightful Crabs

I usually associate Alaska to skis and avalanches because of the snow. Can't blame though since that is what I usually saw on movies. Never imagined that they also have something to be proud of, the Alaskan king crab legs.

It's ideal for health conscious people because of it's protein content and light calorie. There are several ways on how you cook these Alaskan king crabs. It's either you bake it, grilled it, boiled it, or steamed it. It can be tastier depending on how you wished to cook it just remember to thaw it prior to cooking.

This is the best type of king crab. You'll know it when you crack open it's leg and find that it's more meaty as compared to other types of king crabs and it's softer in appearance. Now that I'm blogging about food, it makes me wanna eat again. *Sweat.

First Day High

Left early this morning for Tagum City. It was a relaxing trip since there were fogs visible on the way.

Anyway, just this afternoon, my cousin and I went for a walk around the town to buy some stuffs I need. My cousin's house is within the city and it is very accessible to different establishments just by walking. It's a good exercise, ayt?! It's also sinfully tempting since various food establishments are within the vicinity as well.

Surprisingly, around 6pm we left the house for a walk again, and I saw their version of night market. There were various food stalls and "ukays" along the streets. It relieved me somehow knowing that this isn't the quiet place I used to know. Now it lessened my fear in going home late at night there are still a lot of people in the streets.

But I still miss my home. Huhu. Can't wait to go home tomorrow. Haha.

The Plan of Traveling

Been in my cousin's place the other day and I heard her whining over traveling. She just recently graduated from college and is currently looking for jobs. But while waiting she was telling her mother that she wanted to travel. I agreed with her since I also would love to travel again.

Then we both planned to travel together. It's so nice to travel since you'll be visiting another new place, with new people and new culture to explore. Of course, you will be able to try out their different delicacies. Yum, yum! Ohh, I love it! I just wished that this plan of ours will push through.

We both wished to travel in Europe and is looking specifically for dublin flights. There are various sites online where we could book a cheap dublin flights since we will be obviously traveling on a tight budget. And since the Davao airport only caters to limited international flights, we will also be looking for a flights to dublin airports. As early as now, we are doing some research so we would know what to do and what to expect. It always pay to be prepared anyhow.

Hmm, that would be an interesting and a fun travel! I'll surely bring along my digicam to capture those precious moments and interesting places. Perhaps my cousin could bring her video camrea with her. And since my cousin and I loves to eat, we could both try and explore their different cuisines. That would surely be great! Ohh, I hope we could both have the money to spend for this travel and hopefully this plan will push through.


Packing Up

Tomorrow's the day that I will be leaving home and this time I'm starting to pack up my stuffs. Oh boy, this is what I hate about traveling.

I write down the things that I will be needing so I won't forget them. Hopefully I wouldn't! And during my stay in my cousin's place, I obliged myself to do jogging at least three times a week. Hehe. Oh it would be lonesome there. Huhu. I hope I won't get fat from being lonesome. Nyahaha.

Getting Fit with Wii

Been to the mall this afternoon to buy some stuffs needed next week. At the atrium, there was a program from zesto juice and they had a celebrity guest, though I didn't know who it was since I wasn't interested at that moment.

A lot of kids and teens were there to participate in that event. There were games given inside for these kids to play around and to have fun as well as to meet new friends. I also saw some kids with butterfly fake tattoos on their cheek while they were seated and had fun coloring some images. Others even had fun trying out some computer games. But what made me interested was when I saw a girl playing a Nintendo Wii. I think she was doing some boxing.

Wii is one good alternative in doing your workout. It's a good choice for people who doesn't want to go out much from their house or doesn't like crowded places like the gym. You will definitely have more privacy and more time while working out inside your home. I hope I could buy one someday.

Brain drain

I find myself having fun with blogging. As you can see I frequently update my blog plus the reviews I made. But frequent blogging leaves me topic less already. I find it hard to find a topic to post and then feels lazy, call it brain drain. Problem is there are times that I really have a lot of ideas in mind to post but I couldn't find myself doing some drafts so I could post it when the time comes. *Sweat. During these stagnant times, what would you do to keep you back in track?

I love veggies



We all know how nutritious vegetables are. And among the variety of vegetables this world has to offer, I like the green leafy ones. And if I were given a chance to be reincarnated, I'd like to be a green leafy vegetable, perhaps a lettuce for instance. Green leafy vegetables are rich in Vitamin K, needed for blood clotting. I would voluntarily offer myself to those people with bleeding problems. I'll help them stop their bleeding and save their precious blood. Aside from Vitamin K, these vegetables are also rich in other vitamins and minerals which all of us needs, whether you're a healthy or unhealthy individual.

On another note, this video is interesting. It is about the sproutwells trying to fit in with the humans. Watch them so you will be amused and share this video with everyone.

Wanna Date?

Being single is fun. Really?! They said so! Why wouldn't they? Because being single doesn't hinder you from doing the things you want and you enjoy doing. You don't need to first consult someone where you are going and what you are doing. Basically it's fun because of the freedom that you'll enjoy. It is also a good time to achieve one's dreams and goals in life, giving it more attention in attaining it.

But what if the time will come that you feel you need someone to take care of and to take care of you? To love and to love you back. Isn't it a nice feeling to be inlove? One needs to first find his/her match in order to feel loved.

People tend to find it hard to find their mates. But with the modern technology we are in, everything is possible. With the internet, you can find various singles matchmaking for highly compatible matches online. Test your chemistry with your prospects. And probably meet the one you are looking for.

Dating is one way of getting to know each other. Because through it, you'll find out whether both of you are compatible and if there is a spark between both of you. With this, marriage will soon be the next step for you to encounter.

Otso Otso (eight)

The date today is August 8, 2008 (8-8-08). Chinese people believes this is a lucky day because of the number eight. And this date comes only once in a hundred years. That is why a lot of Filipinos were also hoping this day would be their lucky day. In the news awhile ago, mothers who are about to give birth, made sure they deliver their babies on this day. Other couples also opted to have their wedding on this day with the belief of receiving triple good luck.

Hmm...what luck did I received this day? I guess, the mere fact of still living my life. Hehe. What about you?

Tactical Games

Playing paintball and airsoft seems like fun and challenging. Haven't played it yet but I am hoping I could. Their tactical gear reminds me of my PMT (Philippine Military Training) days. And for those computer addicts, it reminds them of playing counter strike in action. Isn't it cool to play this game with your friends? My boyfriend and I are planning to play this someday, all we need is some friends who would love to join with us and form a group. Haaayy, wishful thinking.

Fresh Contest

With the aim of connecting to various bloggers, Nelle of Stranded Life and I Heart Reviews is conducting a monthly contest as a fresh start of his new blogs. Joining is easy, like any other contests, all you need to do is to link him and his blogs and earn points from doing so. Three winners will be selected to receive a one year plan hosting and domain. This contest is also open for sponsors like me. ^_^

Defense Team

There are a number of innocent people being charge with serious criminal defense without proper investigation conducted especially in the Los Angeles area. This is very hard for the accused and his family. Furthermore, in order to contest these charges, they need expert criminal defense lawyers from Criminal Defense Attorneys in Los Angeles | Southern California Criminal Defense to evaluate the case and to defend the case. The accused needs to undergo due process and needs good lawyers to give him the attention and expert legal advises in order to free him from these charges. I know no one wants to get imprisoned with false charges, and it is indeed very unfair for the accused and his family.

Additional Fare Plus

I was surpised last Saturday upon paying the taxi driver for our taxi fare. The meter reads P35.00, so I handed him my P50.00. Surprisingly, he gave me my change of P5.00 which was supposedly P15 and I thought he might be wrong so I informed him that the taxi meter says P35.00. He then pointed out to the yellow sticker posted inside the cab that read "Additional Fare Plus P10.00". Yay! I've heard about it in the news but didn't know exactly the whole details what it was all about. What I knew was not to give an additional fare if there was no yellow sticker posted. And since there was, I didn't asked anymore and left. Huhu. So does it mean from a flat down rate of P26.00, with the additional fare, it's now P36.00? Waaa...too expensive!!!
