Where are their hearts?

I received a text message from a friend telling me to beware of hackers who might just steal away what I have been working hard for- blogging for money. Yes, those hackers, can now get through your account in a blog network and actually change your paypal address! Imagine that! Where are their hearts? I know that some of us might be blogging for fun and at the same time earn a little cash on the side but there are others too that depend on blogging as means of livelihood, right?

I am calling to all those hackers, please have mercy and do not steal from others.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf?

Do not get excited! Actually, that should have been a more appropriate title. It is a very fresh feeling. I think one blog for money network is like a boy who cried wolf. It is the second time that it has experienced a system error? And, I am the victim! I was so happy and excited that there are many jobs to write about in my bookmark. Yeah, it was the second time but I never thought that it will be like the first time, eh...that all I will get is an error message!LOL! At first, it cannot download because of my connection so I rushed to the nearby store to get a load for my 3G. I even texted my friends and asked them to just get the jobs for me...oh, they are smarter, I think they already knew that it is another glitch...

Wordless Wednesday- A relative

Heads or Tails- Direction

When we were kids, we were told of which direction to take.
As we grow older, we choose our direction.
Have we gone the right way?

There are many paths to take.
It is our decision to follow a certain one.
They say that there is no looking back?

I believe that since we can turn to the left or to the right
To East or to the West
There is also north and south
So is front and back

Hope you have chosen the right direction
Towards something that you always wanted
But if not, be free to come back or turn the other way
After all, it is you, your direction.

Thoughts on Word Verifications

What are your thoughts about word verifications? I was able to read an article or sort of a message at the side bar of one blogger telling about how to attract comments and one of them is removing the word verification option before a blogger can place a comment. I totally agree. I must admit that I do not like word verifications, especially if I did not get it right and I have to write a new one. I do not like writing my e-mail address also. I understand the security reasons to avoid spam but I think that I will be able to visit more bloggers if I do not have to write word verifications and e-mail add anymore.

Ask and you shall receive

Ask and you shall receive. This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I apologize that I do not now where it came from. I think it is from Matthew? Anyways, this is very true for me this morning when I woke up and said my prayers. I asked God for something and He gave it to me eventually. God is good all the time! He also provides us with the things we need. I have written in the past posts that we are going through the rough roads lately but I do not have the right to complain at all. We are surviving and that is with His Great Love and Mercy.

Heads or Tails- Tip

I would like to share a story about giving tips, like tip for a waiter, for a taxi driver or anything you give tips to. By the way, do you give tips?

Before my story, is it true that in Canada, it is mandatory to give tips? How about in US?

I give tips and very generous about it when I was still single. But now that I have a family of my own, I am somehow not much into it already. Anyways, I have nothing against about giving tips because my sister once worked for a restaurant and a part of their earnings come from tips.

I think giving tips should be voluntary.

So, here is my story…Are you thinking that it will not come? LOL! Actually, I sort of forgot about it...He, he.

It was a day before our payday, you know what that means, right? I was almost broke and what’s left in my budget was only what to spend for the next day like transportation and lunch. The bank opens at 1pm. It was actually our salary to be credited by 1pm. So, we were about to go home and being in the night shift, it meant that we had to rush to be able to catch the last Metro Train ride. There were no jeepneys passing by so we decided to take a cab. The MRT station is actually a 3- 5 minute walk from our office so you can imagine how near it is. But, it was already 935PM and the last trip is 937PM. So, the cab driver put the meter down and it read P30.00. It was not moving until we reached the station, then it read P32.50. I was happy because I had an exact amount (almost) of P33.00. Therefore, I paid him P33.00 and he said that I should pay P40.00. But, I do not have any coins anymore. What I had was a hundred bucks. So, I pleaded and told him to consider it next time because our money was just enough for the exact fare. He mumbled that we should have taken a tricycle instead. My companion said that I should had obliged and paid P40. I did not know what came to me but I was just not in the mood to give a tip that day.

So, there it was. What do you think?

I am so excited

I am so excited and I just cannot hide it. Tomorrow is the day and I just love it. I am getting thin, getting thin, fats, goodbye to you. Hey, are you actually thinking that I am writing a song? I must admit that I am singing while writing the excitement that I am feeling for tomorrow. It is the start of the weight loss program drive in our office. And, I am one of the participants. I actually should not be proud of it because it only means that I am not that healthy but still I am happy to be part of it. I will mark it as the day that I will actually decide or have decided to let go of the extra pounds that have been with me for almost five years now! No, I will not miss them!

The Manipulative Child

Do you spank your child? They say that in the US, it is taboo to hurt a child or else a policeman will arrest you. Is it true? But, they say that it is Biblical to apply that rod. There are many books about child psychology and I am sure every parent would want to follow all the do’s and don’ts written there.

I also have a child and as the days go by, I realized that it is a hard task. Disciplining, incorporating good values, making him feel loved, feeding him. Bringing up a good person in this world would really be the greatest success of a parent.

Children have this manipulative sense of being. One of their weapons is their loud crying! They love to dare also. You would know that you lose when a slipper or a belt fly away and touches your child’s buttocks. I lost today. Now, I do not know how to face that defeat. Who will say sorry or first to say hello again? I want to play strong or else, I will just let him think that indeed, he has the power over me.

It was already 7pm and I think I am heaving a terrible headache. Is it my migraine attacking again? Oh, well, I just had my RED visit and usually it attacks during PMS and not after! Oh, could it be that I was just hungry? Correct, I have not eaten a decent meal for the day trying to do a crash diet? It can’t be done anymore just like in my younger years, I guess. LOL! So, I grab a cup and made chocolate oatmeal. Thanks to our vendo machine that has lots of Milo in it. I keep a can of Quaker Oats at my desk…err, pedestal.Ha, ha! Yes, I keep one at my desk but I do hide it at the pedestal when the office admin officer roams around. No eating at posts!

Besides hormonal changes, what could be the cause of migraine?

Here are the following according to

  • Not getting enough to eat.
  • Not getting enough sleep.
  • Exposure to bright lights or loud noise.
  • Fluctuating hormone levels, such as during your period.
  • Changes in the weather.
  • Emotional factors, such as stress or anxiety.
  • Chocolate, alcohol, nicotine or foods with additives such as MSG.
Oh, yes, I am not getting enough food and sleep lately. The heat and cold also cause headaches. Could there be an environment air-conditioning system to manage the high temperature caused by Summer? Just a thought.

Heads or Tails- Express

Let me express my take on this week's theme.
Here are the three basic expressions that we can easily tell in a human face.

Happy- we all smile when we are happy, aren't we? That is the normal expression, at least.

Sad- sometimes we cry when we are sad

Angry- the ugliest face? We tend to show off some wrinkles when we are angry. But we need to express it at times or else, our heart might explode!

Manic Monday

Is there any question you can’t look up the answer to on the internet?

none as of the moment

Invent a new word that you feel would improve the language and define it.

Momdy or Dymom- for all those single parents or not a real mommy or a real daddy in gender

What is your favorite texture?

I guess, smooth


Gluttony, one of the mortal sins or should I say deadly? Literally speaking. I experienced its cause yesterday. I thought I will just collapse and be out of breath. I feasted with too much food until I do not feel discomfort nor was I just testing my limit? Oh, those 10-12 pizza slices in one sitting days are long gone. Yes, I cannot do that anymore. I should not commit gluttony anymore. I always tell that to myself but whenever a buffet table is in front of me, I cannot help but dig in. Just like yesterday. It was free meals at the training. Not just packed lunch but food overflowing.4 main courses of beef, pork, seafoods and chicken. To balance the meal, there were buttered vegetables, salad bar, fresh fruits. For dessert, there were carrot and chocolate cake. Iced tea was also served to push what I had taken in for more room. Imagine that! Thank you to one of our colleagues to leave the fellowship part of the program. That meant being saved from another pigging bout.But that was only because we were to attend the birthday celebration f our dear friend. Food and more food. I can still proudly say that I missed eating two favorite dishes because I had over eaten already from morning to evening. It was payback time when I was on my way home. I really felt all the deadly threats of gluttony. I even thought of death and the news that will come out. What was the cause of death? Overeating! In Filipino, katakawan.Ugly.Real ugly.

Your own home

It is really nice to sometimes have office chats. One of my office mates was telling that she recently received a call from a collection department of a credit card company to her surprise being out of contact for almost three years now! Imagine that! It started the topic about loans, mortgages, housing, and others. One said that she is trying to fix her credit standing so that she could get a mortgage for a home purchase. She is afraid that if the evaluator will find out that she is in debt, her application might not be approved. I told her to attend the seminar for housing loans so that she can have an idea on what are the requirements are. Better yet, do her research online.

How can one avail of a mortgage? Is credit rating really important? Good news! Here is You can search for the mortgage that suits your needs and capabilities. At this site, you can select from a new home purchase, mortgage refinance, or just a help in the equity payment. Sometimes, if the equity is high, that stops you to finally decide on having your dream house. Moreover, you will be able to find out what are the offers available depending on your credit rating. Yes, there is an option for poor credit rating. So, for those still in obligation with other debtors, you still have chances of acquiring a mortgage. After all, everybody has the right to have his own home.

Follow The Sun!

Poem to a Sunflower by Katherine R. Lane (5)

You’ve got to follow the sun! I always sing this song whenever I see sunflowers. Is it true that it really opens to the sun’s direction? I really love sunflowers! It brings some good memories when I, together with my college friends live in the Summer Capital of the Philippines. The place we rented has so many sunflowers in its garden! What a beautiful sight to wake up to every morning!

Wordless Wednesday- Come Join Me

IMG_6214 My favourite park bench - join me

Tick clock, tick clock

How time runs really fast. Two days are almost gone. I only have less than 5 hours and I will be out of the house again. Yes, I am going back to the office after two days rest. I heard or read from the SMS sent by my officemate that there are lots of changes in the office. We will be transferring floors and that would mean new people to get along with. Change, the only constant thing in this world. Wish me luck!

Create your own store

Online business, anyone? Internet shopping is one of the most lucrative businesses nowadays. Most especially in terms of shopping! Women love to shop anywhere in the world and anywhere in the web world. In our office, many are hooked into it. The entrepreneur ones are seeing an opportunity to create their own store online.

The solution

Do you need cash just enough to last on your next payday? Not really a big amount but just to answer for any shortage you might have encountered along the way. Sometimes, you are caught in situations where what is left in your pocket will not last long until you receive again your pay check. It is a common situation since there are circumstances that happen that are out of budget like increase in prices of basic commodities and the like. So, what do we do in times like this? We try to find a solution. We resort in getting payday loans. It proves to be helpful since it is short term and you will not really be in deep debt for a big amount. Since one of the requirements is you have a regular income, you will definitely be able to pay for it. If you want your application to be approved in a few hours, the following should be met; a job or source of income, you must have a checking or savings account with direct deposit, not active in the military and you must be at least 18 years old and of course, a U. S. citizen. Log on to and go get your loan. For those who have bad credit, you can try too!
