Heads or Tails- Fool

I cannot think of anything foolish this week. Hmn. Happy April Fool's day everyone. Anyway, let me just share the lyrics of one of my favorite songs.

What Kind of Fool I Am

What kind of fool am I
Who never fall in love
It seems that I'm the only one
That I have been thinking of
What kind of mind is this
An empty Shell,
A lonely cell,
In which, an empty heart must dwell
What kind of clown am I?
What do I know of life?
Why can't I cast away
this mask of clay
And live my life
Why can't I fall in love
Like any other girl
And maybe the I'll know
What kind of fool I am?
What kind of lips are these?
That lie with every kiss
That whisper empty words of love
That left me alone like this
Why can't I fall in love
Like any other girl
And maybe then I'll know
What kind of fool am I.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Let go of that wrinkled face!

Sometimes we just joke about unexpected expenses as perfect timing. For what? For not having enough cash for it. We just laugh it out but then again we begin to think where to get the money needed. Payroll is still a few days away. We do not one to tell our friends. They might be in the same situation also since most of your friends are your officemates also, right? For all we know, all of us wanted to avail of cash loans if only someone would offer! Times like this make you hide in your flat sheets, sleep and let time passed by then wake up when money is already in the bank! Really, it is worrisome.

Smile again and let go of that wrinkled face! Let time be perfect with!

Love is not an issue

I just opened up with my husband about the hardship that I am encountering and how I really feel about it. Just like the persona that I use, it is only I, meaning I feel alone and thinks that I am the only one who is affected and suffering from our financial crisis. Yes, how petty? But, the truth is, money matters in every situation. It is passé that money is the root of all evils. No one can discount the fact that everyone needs money to survive. Sometimes we live to work and work to live. Why? To earn.

I cannot say that we had a fight because I just told him what I really feel. But, I agree that money is the most sensitive topic to talk about. But, what can I do? I had to tell him. You know what he did? He left the house without a word? Men are always like that, I guess. They escape rather than accept defeat. I do not know what is going through his mind right now. I do not understand why men do not have tongues to verbalize their plans.

Do I feel guilty? Should I? I was just trying to communicate. Well, I pray that he will be enlightened as he drives around with his motorcycle. I pray for his safety also. You know, love is not an issue when problems come along the way. But, there should be a solution to enjoy the loving.

Ready for the unexpected

Parking has really been a problem in our office because the parking area is not enough for the number of cars that employees bring. That is why sometimes accident happens even by just pulling and pushing the car to get in or to get out of that tiny space. Imagine that! My friend’s car was once affected by this and she got a scratch on the side of her car. The person who caused it was lucky because my friend’s car is insured and it got the cost covered.

How about you? Do you have a car insurance? It is high time to get one. You control your car but you do not know what will happen on the road. Better be ready for the unexpected. The premium will vary depending on your driving history and miles driven. If you want to know more about it, log on to The information there on different scenarios is comprehensive enough for you to learn about and eventually get your car insurance. Get a free insurance quote. If you browse through the site you will also know what the cars that can easily be insured are. If you are going to buy a new car, at least you will have an idea on what to buy next based on the insurance value. Most of all, since a vehicle insurance should be renewed from time to time, the site will even help you to be able to save on your next auto insurance.

Funny but true

Do you think the picture is funny? Or, would you rather say that is actually true? Of course, this picture will not come into mind if there was no inspiration behind it.You could take it as a joke that men seem to take for granted their women or wives for that matter during their marriage. I am not surprised that there is a high percentage of divorce. But, I do not blame it only to men. It takes two to tango as they say.

It is the memory

The computer is already a part of our daily lives. Be at home, at the office, at cafes, everybody uses one. If you have your own computer, you also have an internet connection which gives you the opportunity to surf, download or even contribute to the web. That is why, a fast connection is a must.

I work for a telecommunication company which offers broadband connection and sometimes we received calls complaining about slow connection. Could it be our service or could it be their computer’s memory? We advise that RAM or random access memory be upgraded. A 4GB RAM Memory Upgrade will do milestones and can promise a better if not the best speed.

Manic Monday for March 31, 2008

What is the sexiest part of the body?

Is this a censored question? I do not feel and do not look sexy right now.

If you kissed a frog, who would you like it to turn into?

A prince? But what will I do with him? What if a helper instead who will do all the household chores for me? LOL!

What do you have stuck up on your refrigerator right now?

Ice cream! It is summer here! I am having a cup right now!

Little but loaded

When someone is giving application forms for a credit card application, there are always different reactions from the persons accepting or rejecting it. Others will ask first how much is the interest, if there are rewards being offered, rebates maybe and most of all the annual fees.

Once we get in and let credit cards come in to our life, let them not rule us. We have to use them wisely and not just splurge. Let us admit it, once we have or carry a credit card, we become braver in our purchases. It is never encouraged. That is why, it still pays to read and study about credit cards. can help us!

Read through and get some tips in using the little plastic loaded with lots of cash. But, always remember that when you use it, you also have to pay for it. Others think that they can use it for as long as they can but eventually wake up in great debt.

Bridge the gap

Sometimes there are things that are beyond our control. We become constrained if that will involve money matters. That is why we keep a budget and as much as possible follow it. But what happens when unexpected increase in our daily needs happen? Or if there is an emergency which needs extra cash?

Financial constraints will resort us to ask for a cash advance. But if we get that many times already from our employers, we have second thoughts about it. We do not want to have that image of always being short or we do not want everyone to know our situation. We can also try those institutions that offer payday loans but sometimes, they ask for many documents and we cannot afford to wait longer. We do not want water or electric supply be cut because we cannot pay on time, right?

Have you heard about online payday loan? Yes, it might be the answer to all our questions. Imagine, no hassles in applying because you can do that online! What more, you can even get your loan on the next business day. provides these kinds of loan. This will be your bridge from that time of need until you reach your payday! Check it out now!

Wonderful Day

Free cab fare
Free meals
Free from work
Free training
Free mango ice blended with whipped cream

All of the above freebies in one day! God is really good all the time. Thank You Lord! I said my morning prayer for today for this day to be worry free and peaceful and He gave more than that! I, together with my office buddies were scheduled for training today. We were always excited for whole day trainings because meals are free and we can go home earlier than going to the office for our regular shift. When we learned about it last week, Memps, one of our friends invited us to try a new Italian restaurant. Everyone agreed! On my way to the office, as I was waiting for a cab, I saw a familiar face. Oh, it was one of my officemates. She invited me to hop in and did not accept my share for the fare. Today is really full of blessings.

After our training, off we went to Amici and tasted their thin crust pizza. It was good. It so happened that beside the resto is a coffee shop. We decided to stay there for a couple of hours. We hoped for a free wifi access – the in thing nowadays You can see a lap top in every coffee table when you go to this wifi zone areas. Too bad, the connection was down. So we settled for some” girl” talk.

Time to go home. It was fun having some “life” after “office” hours. Well, we cannot do it all the time. So, thank you girlfriends for the time spent with me.

Again, thank You Lord for this wonderful day.

Share Your Blessings

Do you sometimes feel that you need something meaningful in your life? What a better way to find it but through charities. There is an organization wherein you can Donate Boats, cars or your trailers. It is okay if you will be donating a second hand or not a brand new one. It will still go a long way. Those Boat Donations will be converted to cash and will provide a lot to the needs of prisoners, orphans, drug dependents and the like. If you do not have boats but your friends do, you can still help by encouraging them to take part in the Donate my Boat to Charity campaign. It is always a good feeling to share to the less fortunate. In this way, you will also realized how blessed you are.

Photo Hunt- High

Aren't they in high energy? We had a fellowship night yesterday and there was a dance contest. The judges will choose the best dancer from each of 3 groups and the winner will be given a free mobile phone! Everyone got excited! I did not know who won though. I left after taking this shot. LOL!

Missing Blogging

Oh, I miss blogging. Being away from the computer for almost two days now makes my butt not being able to stay on the chair…I feel incomplete and disturbed. Really, huh? I tried to peek yesterday using my friend’s I-touch but it got low batt thus it sort of hung and not able to browse through some sites, so we stopped. By the way, the condotel we were in for our training is a wi-fi free zone. Meaning free internet as long as your gadget is wifi capable! So, the I-phone was not useful, I tried my precious N70 phone. Finally, I saw some blogs but what can you do with pages for mobile phones? And I was paying P10 per 30 minutes. But, it is a cheap rate. Thanks to our beloved, Smart Communications providing 3G and/or high speed GPRS connection. Not all areas have 3G signal so one can settle for GPRS which is already fast.

Now, I cannot contain myself but write even though I have to go to the office by 9AM. I have lots of stories about what happened the past days but I guess, I have to do that some other time. Got to go again and prepare for work. See yah!

The real deal

Who says that work boots are only for men? They can be for women too! Not only that, these shoes are also fashionable and not just for construction. But of course, the real deal is to keep those precious toes real safe and free of pain every time. So, are you looking for shoes? Get a pair that can protect you.

Still sleepy

I am not used to waking up early for work anymore . But I do wake up to take a peek at my blog, visit other bloggers and write something. Just like now. But, I have to go to a training today and call time is 8AM. Imagine that! I still feel sleepy and I just pray that I will be able to stay awake during the day.Hohuuummmm! Got to go or else, I might be late! And, oh, I do not know where the venue is or how to get there! Wish me luck!

No more worries

When you are down and in trouble and you need a helping hand, just call my name and I will be there. Is that a line in a song about friendship? Nice message and proven to be true especially when you need someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on in times of emotional problems. But I think it is different when it comes to money matters. As a matter of fact, some relationships got tinged when money comes in between. That is why as much as possible when you are in financial need, the last persons that you got in mind are those closest to you. Maybe you are shy, do not want to disturb them or just do not want to have an enemy out of it in cases that things get harder.

What do you do in the above situation? What if you really need extra cash but the next cut off for your salary is still days away? You pray that there could be a bank or facility that could offer loans that you can just pay on your payday. The answer to your hopes is here! provides payday advance kind of loan. As long as you have a stable job, a bank account and at least eighteen years old, you are ready to go and fill out that form! Very convenient and easy, isn’t it? Treat it as your online friend. No more worries being short or out of cash when the awaited day is not yet around the corner.

Health is Wealth

Health is wealth as they always say. No one would like to get sick because it would mean unexpected expenses for medicines or for worse cases, hospitalization. But why not allot certain savings for times like this? Of course, it is not like you are expecting to be afflicted with disease so that you could spend your money for that. It is just a matter of being ready.A health insurance is advisable. Get one that has a good coverage. An insurance that is comprehensive enough to answer for those emergency needs. I suggest that you study your options and how much will be the monthly amortization.

There are many types of health insurance. You are lucky if your company has this as one of your benefits. We have one and we only pay a minimum amount, almost negligible compare with what it can give when someone gets sick. Group policies are always cheaper than getting a personal plan. It is better if you get a plan that will be beneficial to all the members of the family. You might want to also get a type that will let you choose your own doctor or the hospital of your choice. That is called Free- For- Service. Our plan is that of Managed care meaning we can go only to those doctors that are members of the Health Insurance provider. To know more about your options, log on to

Scribbling once again

I remember my friend who encouraged me to write and make my own blog. I admit, the biting factor is the opportunity to earn from writing. But believe me, it is more than that. It is like meeting myself again. I used to compose songs, poems and even stories during my younger years. But then again, I forgot or had no time and eventually stopped.She said that she knows I can write again. So, I did. Even though, I am not really a great one but being able to express myself is enough. So, thanks my friend. The money that I am earning now, though not that big has been helping me to make both ends meet. And yes, I feel somehow fulfilled that I am scribbling some words through these keypads once more.

The quote by Mark Twain is for her and for all the people who bring out the best in me.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

About Mark Twain
Samuel Clemens, the iconic American humorist and writer, is better known by his pen name Mark Twain. He was born in 1835 in Missouri. He worked at several jobs, including steamboat pilot and miner. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper, and other successful novels. His writing captured a very American vernacular and flavor, and helped create a distinctive American literature. He died in 1910.

Photo Hunt- Metal: The Needle

Yes, someone gave some blood! So I took a picture as I thought this could be an entry for this week's theme, metal. Needle is made of metal, right?

They say that if you donate blood, your body system is somehow cleansed because the 450 ml of fluids taken out will be replaced by new one.

I experienced giving blood and it was a good feeling. The only thing I did not like was the inserting of that 3-4 inches needle and when it was being taken out. You would really take that deep breath even if you were not told to do so.

Red Cross slogan: Healthy People Donates Blood!

We Are The Reason

As a reflection for Holy week, here is the chorus of my favorite song, We Are The Reason.

We are the reason that He gave his life

We are the reason, Jesus suffered and died

To the world that was lost, He gave all He could give

To show us the reason to live….

I pray that we find our reason for living as we wake up every morning.
Do we just live to wake up?
Or wake up to live?
What is the meaning of each day?
Or it is just a routine?
It is sometimes hard to find the purpose
Just think of what He did.

As the days went by, we knew more about giving of ourselves...and that what means..

The Criteria

What could be the criteria in finding a good technical school? Would it be on its products? Whenever we see a successful person in the field of Information technology, we immediately ask if he was the graduate of one of the best tech schools in town. Once we find out, we will definitely list that school down and consider going there for an IT training one time.

Good Food

We got excited with the news about our local showbiz personalities here. Apparently, the man sent her girlfriend to a chef school as a gift. He even looked for culinary schools abroad to find the best one. He did it because they own a restaurant. Now, her cooking skills will be more developed. That means good food for its customers.

How about you? Why don’t you try going to a culinary school? After all, food is always a stable and profitable business.

Heads or Tails- Any Part of The House

This used to be my bedroom during our teen years. We had a double deck as we called it. But no, it is not my actual room. Of the many pictures that I saw at google search, this one caught my attention because it brought some memories of my younger days. I used to sleep at the top. It was sort to be my own world. Sometimes, I just stayed there, while everyone was busy "downstairs" !

The Best Inheritance

Education is the best gift that you can give to your children. If you do not have wealth, it is the only inheritance that you can leave to them. That is why it is a must that you send them to school. Encourage them to study. Help them to gain knowledge. Make them get the interest and enjoy being in that classroom until one day, they will be the one who will be excited enough to wake up and wear their school uniform.

Passion For Fashion

When I was younger, I love to make paper dolls and of course, paper dresses for them. Yes, I consumed more than a hundred of coupon bands. I think what I made were pretty good ones. Too bad, my cousin put them all away as I hid them under the bed.

Were you like that when you were a kid? Or do you think you have a passion for fashion? Why not pursue it? There are many prestigious fashion schools in California. Who knows, you might be the next Ralph Lauren or Donna Karan? If you would like to study in California, the fashion schools in Los Angeles can be good for you. Where is Hollywood by the way? Your way to the top can just be so near. Once you have graduated from a fashion school in California, then you could start from where else but at the city of stars!

Manic Monday

If you could have any music group or musician play at a party, who would you hire?

I think the Side A Band. It is a local band here in the Philippines. I want them to sing our theme song, Hold On. They are the singers of that song.

Name three things to be happy about today.

It is my rest day.

My kid seems behaving.

I woke up at 1030AM.

How do you release frustration?

Crying, praying, writing.

Goodbye David

David Hernandez was supposed to be one of the better contenders at American Idol. Too bad that not all of America agreed. And, the judges did put him down also, right? During his past performances, Simon even commented that he was one of the best performers in the competition. I think that he is a good singer. But, as they say, it is a contest and someone is just better and is more popular, thus the winner. Anyways, the man has a great career ahead of him. It was told that he is a journalism student. Wow! That was my dream, to become a journalist. So, David, please continue. Maybe you will still be seen in showbizness as you said in your interview. Maybe someday, you can even replace Ryan. Smile!

Do you play slots?

Recently, my friend visited the country and she told me that she went to Las Vegas. She said that her Uncle brought them to the casino. She tried playing slots just to experience it. I got curious. What are slots? answers my question. It is a site where you can play online slots. In this site you can enter online slots machine and get the best deals. The site even tells about the history of slots. How informative! The main thing that a player would like to know is the pay out. The site has lists of online game rooms and their pay out percentage. Sloterix aims that every one who enters the online game gets the best experience and hopefully wins. After all, to play slots is supposed to be the easiest of all casino games.

Photo Hunter- I Spy


This is the dog of my Aunt in law. I was browsing for pictures for the I spy theme then I found him. His yellow eyes were sort of saying, " Beware, I spy on you!"

Happy photo hunting to all and have a great weekend!

Friday's Feast


On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how much do you like your own handwriting?

If to compare with my other friends’ handwriting, I would say 10! Ha,ha,ha! We always kid around about our handwritings. You know, those, you should have been a doctor comments about a bad one! By the way, I was the class secretary for the longest time during highschool.


Do you prefer baths or showers?

I would like to have a bath tub. That is one of my projects in the near future. As of now, I will prefer what I have…shower.


What was the last bad movie you watched?

I could not remember but I would say that Vantage Point did not reach my expectations but it is not really a bad movie. It was still entertaining.

Main Course

Name something you are addicted to and describe how it affects your life.

How about American Idol? Every season I watch it from the auditions to the grand finale. Well it causes me to sleep real late because I am still in the office during the earlier telecast so I have to watch it at 2330H.


Which instrument is your favorite to listen to?

Before, I wanted to have drums. I would like to use it to release my tensions. But, I do not have a music room so where can I place it? So, I guess, I will just say, a guitar. My husband plays guitar.

Funny but really, I am conscious about my neo counter. I always check how many countries had visited this simple blog of mine. It makes my day when I see that the number increases from time to time. I would like to thank those who visits this site. I hope I do entertain you in some ways or at least give a bit of information. Actually, feel free to leave in any comment or suggestion. That would even make me happier.

The Valuable Plastic

Let us face it, credit cards are helpful especially when you are in dire need to buy something but you run out of cash. But what would you do if you do not have one? Not everyone can apply for a credit card, right? Your financial standing is still taken into consideration to secure that valuable plastic. Good news! There are already bad credit credit cards.
Thank you to Log on to the site and find out what is the credit card that would suit your needs and finances. Do not worry if you think that you are not capable. They have credit cards for bad credit as their website name implies. So, why don’t you check it out now!

Learning To Say No

It is quite an issue in the office when someone is a habitual asker. Meaning, he asks about every concern that he handles. It is okay to ask in the beginning but one should also find ways to learn so that time will come that he can go on his own already, right? The sad part is the student sometimes even gets a higher score than the teacher. Often, the one who helps has to render overtime because other parts of his shift was consumed helping others. Well, in fact, that is not his job anymore but that of the supervisors, right?

I am guilty of that scenario when I was new in the call center business. The company that we were handling was continuously innovating and that would mean new products everyday. It was always easier to ask than finding the answer. Until one day, I was told by my supervisor that I should learn the daily updates before or after my shift so that I will not disturb others who were actually working also. That was quite a slap on my face. When I transferred to another department, that happened again. After that, I learned my lesson.

Now, as I see others or when I am the one being asked, I tried to be patient and do my best to help. But, then again, I also know now how to say “No”. I guess, it is not bad at all.

I am sure that everybody has interest in fashion. After all, it is a part of our everyday lives. From the clothes we wear, shoes, bags and accessories we used, there is fashion. So thank you to all the fashion designers who make things look good and continue to innovate.

Yes, it takes talent or the hand for fashion designing. But, education can also help and even hone your skills. Continuous learning is a must. So, why not go to a fashion school in new york ?

Eating Challenge

My son does not eat chicken, fish, pork, vegetable, and eggs yet. He only eats Hotdogs once in a while. Sometimes, he eats rice but with tomato sauce or soy sauce only. He loves to eat noodles, cookies, yogurt, potato chips and cakes. But, of specific brand only. For cookies, it is Oreo or Chips Ahoy. For potato chips, it is Pringles and for Yogurt- it is Nestle- the strawberry and mango flavor. His staple food is still his precious milk. Do you think not healthy at all? Or, could he be missing some nutrients that he can get from poultry, farm, fish and meat products? I really do not know how he developed such eating habits. That is why it is really a challenge for me. My friends are kidding that I should not feed him anything then he will be forced to eat what is just at the table. Oh, I do not agree to such cruelty, LOL!

That is one of my bigger challenges. I hope I will be successful.

Another Blessing

I think that Pay Per Post has the biggest blog network . It has advertisers all around the world and of course caters to all bloggers from any continent. So, even if you are from Asia, America, Europe or anywhere in the map, you are welcome. Pay Per Post is the most generous too offering $20 for your first post once your blog has been approved. Opportunities also pour in and they even have some promos for bigger pay. That is why, I am not surprised to see many bloggers with the PPP badge. What more! They already have this new rule that you can already apply if your blog is already a month old! You can start earning by expressing yourself through writing .No need to wait for three months.

I applied for PPP around three or four days ago and I feel blessed that my blog had been accepted. I need extra income. I am saving for my child’s schooling because he has to go to school by June. So, what a great way to earn additional cash! I love writing and I never thought that someday I can be paid for it. But, of course, I will try to be better so as to give the advertiser’s back their money’s worth.

The Real Competition Begins

I already feel sleepy because it is 2324H here already. I feel tired because I went to office for five straight days! I am not used to it anymore because since the scheduling was transferred to our team leaders, we can easily request for our preferred time and days. But, you know, sometimes, you just have to give in to some requests and sacrifice a little. I was supposed to have my first rest yesterday but one of my office mates needed it badly. So tomorrow will be my precious rest day instead.

So, what is keeping me up? I am waiting for the replay telecast of American Idol. It is now the top 12 and the real competition begins. Yes, I can easily search for the result at but I want to get some surprise and I want to have my own opinion of how the contestants would fare. My husband did spoil though that Ramiele and even the young David did not sing well. I have to find it out.

Okay, here it is at Star World. Bye for now and till my next post on what I think of them.

Five Stars for Smorty!

I am so glad that there is such thing as blog advertising wherein bloggers are being given a chance to earn some cash! I know some friends who get paid for blogging. So, I thought, why not try it on my own? I saw many badges of Smorty and it really attracted me.The green color means blog for money. For only a minimum of 150 words means a sure $6 payment and it can get higher. Not bad at all. That is why, I am so happy when I learned that Smorty accepted my blog in less than 72 hours. They rate bloggers through star rating. Wow, I got four over five stars. It inspired me to write better. I hope that I will get five stars next time.

So, friends, try Smorty. If your blog is already three months old and has original content, you can already apply. After submission and approval, you will then be ready for your first post. New opportunities are available everyday, you just have to refresh the page.

Heads or Tails- Green Mangoes

These green mangoes are exactly what I am looking at right now! Our neighbor planted a mango tree 5 years ago and is now bearing fruits! What a lovely sight. All the neighbors are good not picking them up at night! LOL! It is just an arm reach to taste that fruit. And it is planted outside their house. Actually planted beside our gate's post.

The owner actually tried to pull the branches up by tying them but to no avail. Even my little son can get it.

But, of course, we would like to see it grow bigger as they say. That is why, I am shy to take pictures of those so I decided to get from the web courtesy of

Manic Monday

What's your favorite thing to spend money on?

Though it is not a favorite really but I guess, I spend most of my money in food!
But, if I really have much money, then I would love to spend on clothes, shoes, bags, make up, perfume, etc.

If you could retire tomorrow what would you do?

I would go on a trip with my family. Visit all relatives and friends that I have not seen for a long time.

Should anything be censored and if so, what and why?

Censorship is always variable. It has been categorized though in terms of movies, magazines, anything in mass media. But, the greatest thing that I think has not been censored is the internet. It is free for all! It is with the parents to be censoring it for kids.

Study Your Options

There are many online casinos that you can go to but don’t you like to know first what can it offer to you? Why not go to a site that has online casino reviews ? From there you can choose which one is better than the other. Log on to and see what I mean. It has reviews of more than hundreds of online casinos and they have sorted out the Top 20.

Learn about your favorite games too! Let us face it, others are not yet casino experts or just starting so why not get some information first on how to play the game? Better yet, check on the Online Casino FAQ page. From there, some of your questions might be answered like what computer is compatible to use, how to download the software, how to collect your winnings and others. Any cloud of doubt regarding of the legality of an online casino is discussed there also.

So, do not just jump in and gamble. Study your options first and always play sensibly.

Arnel Pineda: The Journey

Have you heard of the band- The Journey? This band is known for hits like Open Arms, Foolish Heart, Faithfully and of course by its original singer, Steve Perry. One American Idol contestant, Cristy had her rendition of the song Faithfully that mad her landed on the top twelve slot.

How about Arnel Pineda? Do you know him? He is a Filipino and is now the lead singer of the band. The reason I am writing this right now is because my husband has been bugging me to listen to him and know about his story.

My husband has been searching through You Tube and found Arnel Pineda. He blurted out that he is very happy about his success. At first, I was just ignoring him because I am not really into music. Then he said that he was just watching the fellow at Shakeys during his younger years. Arnel Pineda has not been able to get through the local showbiz mainstream here in the Philippines but look at him now, huh!

Finally this morning, I tried listening to Arnel Pineda and he is good. I watched also all the videos about him that my husband downloaded. It was mentioned that his story is like that of Cinderella. And, thanks to internet for his success because he was discovered because he and his band downloaded their gigs at You Tube and it so happened that The Journey’s founder and guitarist was then looking for a new lead singer.

Arnel Pineda, pride of the Filipinos! Continue with your journey. Lots of lucks and God’s blessings.

Friday's Feast

If you could be any current celebrity for one whole week, who would you want to be?
Just for fun – I would like to be Tiger Woods and know what he does besides golf and advertisements, commercials, etc…I would like to know if he sleeps at all!
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you enjoy talking on the phone?
I can stay on the phone for as long as you would like to talk to me…so that is a ten?

It is a split between any orphanage or a home for the aged.
Main Course
What is a food you like so much you could eat it every single day for a month?
Good question. I got fat like these so I guess, I have to stick with eating just my favorite… quite hard though. My friends say that every food is my favorite-LOL!

Oh, my poor man. My Honey!

Manic Monday

Manic Monday for March 3, 2008

You find that your best friend has stolen money to pay for medical treatment for a seriously ill relative. What would you do?

This is quite a hard question. Maybe I will try to help her to pay for it. I really do not know. But definitely, no blaming her. I will still try to understand.

What three things you regret not learning to do?

Hmmnnn, you've got me thinking, ha!
Maybe things I would like to learn but do not regret of not having learned it yet.
1.dancing- well, I am not much of a good dancer- my husband said I dance out of beat good food- it is my husband who is a good cook
3.sewing- making dresses or clothes for me and my family

Daily Inspiration

I subscribed to Daily Inspiration but I have not really opened those at my e-mails. This one just caught my attention.

"No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence."
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A good quote to remember as I go back to work tomorrow after four days of "rest". I actually pray everyday that I will be able to do well in my job and the people I work with will also have the same whisper.

Sign of Wisdom or Old Age?

Sign of wisdom or of old age? I am writing this post because my husband took away some of my white hairs a while ago. How sweet,no?Yeah,his simple acts like that make me love him more.Kaya Lang, as he showed me those white hairs, he commented, looks like hair of a witch!He,he.Well,of course, he was just kidding.So,after a hundred of those and quite painful scalp, it put me down to sleep.Yeah,it was soothing and I felt relaxed. I remember when I was still young, my aunts and uncles would even pay me to pluck out their white hairs.And, yes, the payment was bigger if I was able to put them down to sleep.Now, is it my turn to do that? Am i really that old now to have these white hairs? I had my first white hair even way back during highschool.One or two would show up. There was a saying that if we take that out, it will be many or more will just come out. I always tell though that it is a sign of wisdom. I felt matured for my age during that time. I will tell why in my next posts. Having white hairs or light brown hairs could also be a sign of nutritional deficiency. They say that if you lack protein in your diet, you tend to have thinner and of lighter shade hair. The hereditary factor of course is also there.So, sign of old age or wisdom? Who can tell? With hair coloring, it does not matter anymore. As of me, I think I have white hairs because it is natural. I am aging, becoming wiser, and has not applied those chemicals yet.
