It's Payday!

November 15, Sunday

It’s payday today. I woke up at around 8 am as I need to go to the gym. My hubby woke up earlier to cook our breakfast. Mom is already cleaning that house and already finished eating her palabok which she bought from a manang, the one who sells kakanin and other stuff. Well, I need to go to the gym today because I only have one and a half month left before my subscription expires. Well, I and hubby went to Waltermart Munoz for my gym session. He will wait for me outside the gym while reading Bro. Bos book. There are only a number of people working out at that time, which is good as I normally workout at around 5 pm …when the gym is jampacked with lots of people. It’s good to be able to use the gym equipment with only few people staring. Anyways, it took me two hours before I could finish my workout. I felt so refreshed and I feel that my life is again on the right track. It’s almost twelve noon and I am already hungry. We decided to go to Chowking to see what we could eat, and to our surprise, we saw my hubby’s father and brother. We have no choice but to let them join us for lunch. Unfortunately, our money at hand is not enough to accommodate four people so I need to go to an ATM machine to withdraw and it took me about 30 minutes before I could finally get my hard earned salary. My hubby’s family already left after they have eaten while me and my hubby ate at KFC. I was supposed to have my manicure and pedicure but I’ve changed my mind since I already have spent so much for today. I’ve decided to just buy some groceries for the house and just have my nails done by myself. Went home with Lechon Manok for mom at around 2:30 Pm . As I write this entry with my lappy, me and my hubby is watching room 205, I thought it’s a horror movie but I still can’t understand the plot. Anyway, I will watch Willing willie in a little while. Thank you Lord for this day and to you be the glory forever. Amen.


I Will Never Doubt Your Love...

How can I not love you?


Realizations about Love

It all started unexpectedly. Who would know how it all began? I just woke up one day and his face is all I see. I know I’ve been through the same scenario before 7 years ago and I know it has a tragic ending. But I still nurtured the feelings… I still gave in to this feeling knowing I will be the one in the losing end. Why didn’t I follow my instinct? Why would I give in to something that requires a lot from me but can’t give back what I have surrendered. It’s another one sided love affair and I hate myself for diving into temptation when I know for a fact that I will be the one to cry. I already cried it all out… I already gave up and already waved my white flag in surrender. I promised myself that I would never, ever initiate any act from this time forth forward that will rekindle my feelings for him. Not anymore.

I guess I won. After my heart to heart talk with Melai yesterday…I’ve realized how lucky I am to have Jojo in my life. I have been unfair to him. I was the one who manipulated him and stole his life away from him. If he hadn’t known me…I guess he is now a successful guy. Having lots of friends and loving someone who loves him as much as he does. A girl who would serve him…who made him her number one priority. Not someone like me…a very selfish girl. Loving only herself and someone who doesn’t really knows the meaning of the word love. For six years, I’ve been blinded by this selfishness and I fail to see how lucky I am to have Jojo in my life. I have been such a bad girlfriend and I really don’t deserve being loved the way he is loving me. If not for Melai, I would not be able to appreciate my Jojo and most likely would still continue abusing him till now. He doesn’t deserve being treated as if it is his responsibility to serve me… to obey me…to love me unconditionally. I have been such a bitch. I don’t deserve to be loved at all…

But thank God…He never let me fall to that trap of selfishness again. He sent Melai, my sister to remind me that I need not ask for any other gifts anymore.. He already gave me those gifts just before I asked for it… I’ve just been blinded by my earthly desires that I failed to open it. So from now on, never will I look for any love from a different man for I know I already have the best love there is. Thank you Lord for giving me an angel here on earth….


Simple Pleasures

Woke up at around 1:30 am today. It's really nice to have a three day off. I started working on my blogs while we decided to order a Mcdo Burger meal. We ate while watching a horror flick "After Life" starring Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci and Justin Long. It's a story about a girl who died because of a car accident and doesn't believe that she's dead. I think it's more of a love story than a horror film. It's about the love of her boyfriend who didn't stop searching for her love till the end. Yesterday, after working out in a gym, we had our groceries and he made me a grilled chicken using our griller. Feeling "korean food" ang menu because we also purchased a chopstic set to set the mood. I really enjoy simple pleasures such as this one. I'm very easy to please and I'd rather stay at home watching a good movie through our dvd eating a home cooked food. The best! I hope we could have more of this bonding moment and I know that little sweet things he does for me really helps in rekindling the fire in our relationship.

We're currently watching our favorite Koreanovela High Kick on TV5 and after this at around 5 PM, we'll gonna meet my mom at SM North for dinner. Thank you Lord for all of these blessings and may I please you in everything I do from now on. Amen.


A Crazy Month

Mid July to mid August is the craziest months of this year for me. I 've fooled myself believing a lie and an illusion which led me to sorrow and despair. But that chapter of my life just ended this week, after a big revelation. I won't dig deep into that as it would only open old wounds. I would just like to tell the world that I have survived and managed to stand up after a big mistake. I am now picking up the pieces and trying so hard to bring back my passion to write. I lost so many writing opportunities as I wasn't able to find time to write because of some emotional mishap. It's been so hard for me to think and formulate ideas as my mind has been occupied with so many illusions. I would like to create more blogs, write more useful articles and begin reaching out to other bloggers. I would also want to earn more through my paid blogging but promise not to overdo it. I just want to make sure that when I retire in a year, I would have enough savings to start a new life. Still thinking of what theme would I use to start a new blog but whatever it is, I would make sure that it would interest me enough so I would be inspired to blog more.


A Very Hectic Week

Hello everyone! I'm sorry if I was'nt able to post anything on this blog for so long because I have been very busy with my work and some other personal stuff. There are so many things that happened these past few weeks...so many changes occur especially on the office. Well, just to let you know, our team has been dispersed. We were divided into two but good thing is that our new Coach was our previous QSP for 8 months so we already know him personally. I was overwhelmed when I've learned that KC would be our new TL. I know I am in good hands.

Another thing, brother called last night asking me if I want to buy his van because he is thinking of selling it and buying a new one. Well I'm still having second thoughts about it. I know I really needed a car for myself because our current apartment is very far from where I am currently working and I am really dying to buy one. He said the car is working in perfect condition but I could also add car accessories to make it look better. He he knows a site where I could buy car accessories such as headlights, wind deflectors, air filter, dash kits among others for a cheaper price. I will give my decision within a week, I will first check my budget.

Also, we were supposed to move from this apartment to another but since we're not able to find a good location...we decided to extend our stay here for the next two months. Will tell you more of what's going on on my next posts. Ciao!


Tired and Demotivated

I came to the office 30 minutes late today. I woke up at 3:20 am and my shift is at 4:00 am. I have the earliest shift and I don’t really like the feeling of going to work with no familiar faces around. I took the fist call and since I am really not on the mood for working, I don’t know how the call ended. There are so much dead air and I can’t even talk straight. There are a lot of uhmmm… and hmmm… and I don’t really understand the callers issue. The nega feeling continues until the end of the shift . I am just so fortunate to be have a one hour sup call coz I was able to rest my voice. I know I need to be motivated, I know I need to force myself to continue working for this company until next year. I can’t quit now, I’ve waited this far. I just hope I would be able to endure all of this and I would be able to safe for the future. After a year and a half, everything would change and I would be able to do things I want to do in life. I just want to be prepared in a battle. I can’t just take the risk all the time, I need to be ready with the necessary gear to endure the life ahead. I just hope the Lord will help me find reasons to stay...


No Guts, No Glory

I’m so happy for my friend Melai as she was profiled to be a QSP Intern, the same position that was offered to me last month. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the guts to apply for the said position and I told my coach to just give the opportunity to others. Now, that my friend has her own chance, I told her not to let it pass and don’t commit the same mistakes I did before. I know it’s wrong, I know I need to grab all the opportunities that would be presented to me, unfortunately fear enveloped me. I don’t want to take risks and I really fear failure. I am afraid of what other people would say or would think of me if I fail such an easy to get position. I am afraid period. But I was enlightened by what Bro Bo Sanchez said on his weekly program in ABC 5 regarding Living The Life. He said that a certain survey company asked around 300 older people aging from 60 years old and above on what do they think their greatest regrets are and most of them answered almost the same thing. That they were not able to take enough risks in their lives. They are afraid of failure so they also had limited successes. Bro Bo said that the only way to success is failure. Thomas Edison failed a thousand times on his experiments but he was the one who invented the light bulb. It’s all about the mindset…being positive all the time knowing whatever happens and wherever life may lead you…God wants you to be on that very same spot where you are right now. It is all written and it already has a happy ending. We just need to enjoy the journey of life while we still can. I know I need to take risks, I know I need to take my chances and from now on…I am focusing only on my goals. Nobody can ever hinder me from being successful in everything I do because God is the one that’s leading the way. Amen.


Unmotivated and I Hate It

I don't like what I'm feeling...it's like the whole world is falling down on me. I wish I could still make things work for myself. I have sooo many regrets but I guess I need not focus on them anymore as I don't have anything much to do about it. I wish I could just wake up one day with a fresh new start and take all the opportunities I can get without any doubt. I hope there is still something in stored for me somewhere...

No To Injustices

I hate those people who doesn't respect a person's right. Most likely it's because somehow I've been a victim of such. Three years ago, I used to work in a website company where my direct superior was my former colleague. To be honest with you, I accepted the job having faith that our professional relationship would not be affected by our personal relationship. Unfortunately that's not what happened. Things went from bad to worse that it came to a point where I just told her that I can't take it anymore and that I am resigning. She didn't take my resignation because of anger and instead called me up on the phone saying I was fired. What an injustice! I was very young then, I didn't know anything about the law and I didn't know any legal action I could make against the company regarding what happened. Good thing, there is such an organization called Protection juridique who provides legal assistance and information through phone. It is now easier for people to ask help especially if they have been mistreated. For folks out there who are experiencing injustices - whether in your office, in business or organization...you could call their hotline at 0 810 816 253 or email them for inquiries.


My Impacted Wisdom Tooth

Waaah, ngayon ang judgement day! I would need to see a dentist today to have my tooth extracted. I actually went to the office yesterday just to see our company doctor and fortunately, the doctor gave me a sent home slip. I have spoken with my coach and luckily, I was able to file an LOA (Leave of Absense) instead of  just the regular sick leave which means a minus on my scorecard for the month. Pag nangyari yun, nakow, my scorecard will definitely fail. Sayang naman ang QPB and all those perks. My coach thanked me for coming over kahit na namamaga na ang gums ko because in that way, I was able to prove to him that I am willing to sacrifice para lang mapatunayan na I'm telling the truth and hindi gumagawa lang ng excuse to be absent. So eto, I'm preparing for my 2:00 pm operation and I'm gathering all the strength I could get to be strong and huwag matakot sa injection. Waahhhh...iniisip ko palang ang haba ng karayom halos mahihimatay ako. I really pray the dentist can find a way para mapastahan lang itong butas na ngipin ko and hindi na kailangang bunutin. Kahit anong mangyari, please Lord tulungan mo akong wag masaktan please and sana covered ng Intellicare card ko ang tooth extraction. Pag nagkataon, P6k ang magagastos ko kung macacategorize ito as impacted wisdom tooth which will require minor surgery. Nooohhhh. Will update you with what happened later. Sa ngayon, please pray for me ha. Thanks.


Simplify by Bo Sanchez

Just after reading the "Simplify" book by Mr. Bo Sanchez, I knew for a fact that I have a higher calling. God has ordained me to do a lot of things for his own glory. He planted a desire in my heart to work part time so I could have enough time to serve Him and serve others as well. He wants me to have financial stability to have the courage to facilitate the mission He gave me in this lifetime. I know I'm not made just to exist - I know each and everyone of us is made for a single purpose - that is to glorify God through the life we live in. It does'nt matter if you are a teacher, a construction worker, a plain housewife - each of us have corresponding circle of influence...we need to utilize whatever we have to serve the Lord. I know I've been so spiritual on this post but it is more of a realization - a reflection of what the purpose of life is. I highly recommend the book especially to those individuals who are still struggling to know what path to take. Simplify by Bo Sanchez is really a must read for everyone!

If you're blessed, buy me a cup of frap!



I know I have hurted my friend. We were supposed to go to my friend Mamu’s province in Agoo La Union for the holy week but unfortunately our schedule did’nt permit us to have a Saturday and Sunday restdays. Instead, I was given a six day schedule having a Wednesday and a Thursday off . I know that we have hurted him since we already assured him of our plans of going. I guess he already told everyone in Agoo that his friends will come along. I myself really is so excited to go there but I would have to choose between work or friendship here. The situation in the office was really so shaky, we don’t know how long will we gonna be able to work in the same company due to some issues with our scorecards. I hope my friend would be able to understand my situation and that I hope he’ll be able to find a spot in his heart to forgive me…


My Calling

Woke up at around 2 am today. As usual, I worked on my blogs while hubby cook our dinner after which we saw a movie through our dvd player again. I am beginning to learn a lot of things on how to optimize my blogs. Slowly learning about SEO stuff and I am loving it! I love to learn new things on how to improve my readership and my stats. I feel that this is my calling...to be a blogger so I could work part time and share my views to the world about how much God really loves mankind. Maybe I could share my own experiences so I could be a
blessing to others. I also want to work part time at home by working on my blogs so I could find ample time to go to church and serve the God who gave me my life through singing. I would be able to find time glorifying God and find time with my family as well. I believe that I work to live - not the other way around.

How about you, what's your life purpose? God bless everyone!


Team Building the Prophet's Way

I will make some changes on my bl0gs and I decided to make this one my online diary. I would take note of what's been going on with my daily life and hopefully I could show to the world how God was able to help me cope up with all the challenges I face in my everyday life. Join me in my aim to conquer my own life battles and walk with me while I experience God's love and grace in my life. Hope I can somehow touch at least one's life with this blog and inspire him to wholeheartedly entrust his life to the one true God.

MARCH 1,2009

Last Monday was a great time for the team prophets to bond as we had our team building at Lancaster Hotel Shaw Blvd. We booked for their largest room where we enjoyed the luxury of enjoying a 3 room unit. Since I had a shift prior to that day, I need to go home first and rest while my other teammates already headed to the hotel as early as 2PM. I need to go home and fixed my things and of course, I need to have my much needed rest. I know myself and I know that if I’m deprived of sleep…I can’t think straight. So right after our shift, I came home, ate lunch with my hubby and had my 5 hour sleep. I came to the hotel at around 7pm as I still need to buy a cake so people who are not able to make it on my birthday can still eat a piece of my cake. I did’nt know that they are all waiting for me before they go swimming so I immediately changed my clothes and off we went to what they call the Peak which is the highest floor of the hotel where the swimming pool is located. It is really a fantastic view up there! We had our photo session and had our usual chit chat and laughing session. Ang lamig and I swear, I enjoyed every second we had up there. We had our dinner while singing with the videoke player I brought that night. After a hearty dinner, we also saw a horror movie “possession” which I also brought. I wonder what we would do if I did not bother to bring the videoke and bring a dvd… I think we would just stare at each other as we don’t have any other activities. All eyes became heavy at around 1 am and we all decided to call it a day. They all slept at the rooms upstairs but Melai and I decided to just sleep downstairs. I never thought that I would hear a silly confession from Melai that made me cry. I hugged her and prayed that everything would be ok in the life of my sister. I really feel her heartache and I am just so touched that she is confident that I would keep her secret… and of course I will.

Anyways, we slept at around 3 am and woke up at around 8 am. We again decided to swim but we are too early. The attendant said the pool will be opened at around 9:30 am and we are 30 minutes earlier than that…so what we did is we took the time to again have a photo session beside the pool. We really can’t get enough of our pictures and since I and PJ both have our cameras with us plus GK’s camera in his cellphone… we had more than a hundred photos all in all…just because we are trying to kill the time while waiting for the pool to open.

After our swimming session…we ate our breakfast. They ordered 2 KFC bucket meal. Jojo fetched me at around 11 am so I went home ahead of them. They are actually teasing me because I came very late and I’m also the earliest to leave, lol. They can’t blame me… I had my shift prior to this day and also had a shift later. I need my much needed sleep so as to survive my night shift. In general, we really had a great time! This is the first time I had the chance to stay overnight in a hotel and I may say… I want to experience this again. Till next time!


SEO Fever

Well, I literally didn’t sleep tonight. I’ve actually worked on my blog the whole night while hubby watched some movies on our dvd player. He then decided to sleep at around 3am. I, on the other hand, can’t force myself to sleep as I still need to install some plug ins on my blogs. Actually to be honest with you, though I’ve already blogging for almost 3 years now… this is the only time I have fully understood the use of google trends and google analytics. Of course for so many years, I’ve long to have a popular blog. A blog that would give me lots and lots of moolah from paid ads to google adsense and I know I need to do something about it.

I know that writing almost everyday would help improve my stats but I also know that it’s not enough and I don't know where to begin. Good thing I was able to read the ebook “The Guerilla Blogging” by mr. macuja and mr. z diaz – because of that, I was able to see a clear vision on how I could improve the numbers in my blog and what steps I need to take to achieve it. I was really able to learn a lot about SEO and blogging from that ebook as they have written it in such a way that even novice bloggers can understand. If you also want to read the ebook, you can visit macuja.com or zdiaz.com for FREE download. Goodluck to us!

I'm the Lucky One

Just a while ago, I and my hubby Jojo had to SM North Edsa to buy some stuff for the house. I intend to buy shoes and a shirt to be used in the office and I also want to buy some stuff for him for his upcoming birthday on March 29 and also do our groceries together. We normally go out during my restdays and we treat going our groceries together as our bonding time. It's payday so I thought it would be a perfect time to have a date and buy him some gift. The salary I got was below my expectation and as what I have posted on my other blog about what happened during Pacquiao Clottey Fight wherein I had paid my dsl connection in advance, my budget for our bonding today is so limited. But I know that hubby is looking forward to this date, he's been busy doing chores in the house and working on his online job so I guess whatever the situation is, I need to make sure he would have a great time today. So I bought some stuff for myself and bought him some underwear from Bench. He said doesn't want to buy anything else but a good pair of underwear for his birthday. He said that he understands our situation and he would just buy some stuff for himself once he already received the payment from his online work. I am really touched by his gesture. I know I tend to push our finances to the limit but thank God he gave me a sweet, loving and understanding husband who keeps on reminding me to live a simple life and save for the rainy days. We might not have everything but I know that whatever happens in this life, we know we got each other. Some said Jojo is so lucky to have me as his better half but I know deep in my heart that I am the Lucky One.

I love you Lord and I love you too, Jojo....


Living THE LIFE...

March 6, 2010

Dear God,
While surfing the net and working on my blogs earlier today, an idea came to mind. I want to add some Christian music to my computer’s music playlist. So I hurriedly searched Bearshare, my music search software, and was able to search different PAPURI songs and grabe, memories started to come back. I still recall what my life was when I am still living in Montalban with my mom during my first two years of working. I guess that’s the closest I’ve been with God because at that time, I am always going to the church with my friends Pipa and Jag. I still recall how early I used to wake up, which is more or less 5 am in the morning. My mama would always put in some Christian music on our cd player and while I’m fixing myself … I would
usually sing along. Hayyy..I really miss those days. If only I could pull back time and continue being close to God the way I’ve been before…I would grab it. Lord, please help me have a closer relationship with you again. I want to serve you and be the person you want me to be, I don’t want to waste my time on doing things which are really not important. Lord, I sometimes envy other people who are living the life I wanted to live, but I know I can’t have it all. I should look on what I have and not get jealous on other peoples fortune. Lord, give me the heart that only longs to please you, In Jesus name I pray amen.

Learning about SEO

March 5, 2010

Dear God,
Well, it’s such a great day for us. The original plan was to spend the day at the house and just go to the mall later this afternoon, but since it’s too hot outside…we just decided to stay at home and just work on the internet and watch tv. It’s summer time now but I really didn’t anticipate it to be this hot and humid. Pweh. Anyways, I worked on my blogs and made some changes on it. Im currently reading what Malen gave me, an ebook about how to improve adsense earnings. She said her income tremendously increased since she followed the tips included in the ebook. I actually started reading the first part and intend to make time to read the rest of the book on my next rest day. Anyways, we’ve watched the movie Arn through the dvd and slept at around 6pm. Woke up at 3am and had our dinner. Watched Narnia while working on my blogs and writing some paid reviews. I really need to work on this and make time for SEO. I want to write useful articles and not just fillers for my paid reviews. I want to make an impact and I want to have loyal readers. I am currently working on my keywords. I have ten active blogs and I want to have targeted keywords for each to improve my online income. I guess I need to know the in and out of online business if I intend to make this as my primary bread and butter in the next two years. It’s kinda complicated but I inted to have it one step at a time and I have little goals for now. I hope I can make it big in the future. Till next time!


Beading Hobby

March 4, 2010

Dear God,

Wow, at last…it’s my OFF! Yahoo! Jojo fetched me at Munoz because we were supposed to have my celphone fixed. I bought a php 2000 worth of celphone at Ever Monumento but unfortunately we were not able to thoroughly check if it is working properly. The battery of the phone dies only after an hour after we had it charged. The USB cable is not working and the phone turns off by itself. I’ve learned a great lesson in buying without thoroughly checking the item while you’re in the store. Good thing, it is covered with one month warranty, however, Jojo forgot to bring the usb cable so we were left with no choice but just to go home and just go to the store tomorrow. I came home very exhausted and my hubby let me sleep while he cooks our lunch. My hubby is really the kindest man in the whole world. He takes care of me and looks over my needs more than his own. I really can’t ask for more. After he finished cooking our meal, he woke me up to eat our lunch. We experienced brown out at around 2pm and it’s really freakin’ hot so I really don’t feel like sleeping at all. We just saw the movie Iron Man on our small dvd player, good thing Jojo was able to have it charged, while I work on my beads. I organized my beads and boy, I really have a lot! It’s just so unfortunate that I don’t have a good talent in making original bead design. Maybe it takes practice and creativity to make a good bead design like what my friend Malen creates. I really admire her creations and mind you, she is really making a lot of money out of it. I just hope I can acquire her creativity and color coordination talent in bead making. I also want to have a business like her because I really want to save for my upcoming retirement. It took me an hour to make one bracelet…oh my. I guess I need to practice more often. When the power resume, I felt sleepy and tired so off we went to bed at 6pm and woke up at 3 am the other day. Thank you for this day Jesus, amen!

Transportation and Budget

March 3, 2010

Dear God,

This is my last shift for this week, yahoo! Well, as always, I with Jojo again went to the office riding a cab which means another P150 was spent for nothing. I would confess that Jojo, my hubby, still comes with me to the office everyday which means my transportation budget is for two people. My actual fare to and from the office for myself is P75 so it would cost us P150 daily just to be able to go to my shift. That’s a lot! If we’ll take a cab, it would mean an additional P50 so it would be P200. Phew! I think I need to think of ways on how to save on our transportation. I really hope they would be able to finish the MRT extension project the soonest possible time so I could just take the MRT and Jojo need not to accompany me on my way to the
office. It would just cost me Php 94 if I would just be taking the MRT route. Well, I don’t have any complain at all… my sister is the one paying for the house we are living in right now and we are living comfortably in that two room apartment and I could not ask for more. Thank you Lord for all your blessings to us and thank you for my sister’s life and I pray you also continue to bless her. Amen.

I Need To Pass my Scorecard

March 2, 2010

Dear God,

Had my shift tonight and I am 30 mins late! Phew! Anyways, the shift went well. I was able to concentrate on my calls and was able to forget about the time as I am really focusing on my calls. I need to pass my scorecard this month as I’ve been failing for three consecutive months now and that is scary! This is the first time I had failed three times consecutively in a year. It’s not sooo me. Anyways, I just hope and pray that I would be able to pass my scorecard this time. In Jesus name I claim it amen!


My Sporadic DSL Connection

I've been having issues with my dsl connection for sometime now but I still don't have the courage to have it disconnected. I don't know why, it's very easy to shift from one dsl company to another but I also know that I again need to present multiple documents, wait for about a week for the installation and pay another one month advance. I don't think I can add another complication in my already complicated life. Speaking of dsl conection, I guess what I need to do for now is to buy a wireless n router so I can use my wireless laptop while my hubby is busy working on our desktop. In that way, I don't need to wait for him to finish his task before I could start with mine. Good idea. Will try to order one from the net later that is - if I am lucky to get a steady dsl signal, haha!


I Fixed My PC!

Wow, I can't believe it! I was able to fix my pc issue by just checking on google and some pc forumn on the internet. It's just so happen that my original sound card which is built in to my computer messed up so I need to buy a new one. I bought a generic type of sound card and the salesman said I don't need to install a driver for it as it a plug and play type of device. It cost me P300! Though with so much doubt, I believed him and tried installing it myself. Unfortunately it's not working. I began to doubt the info that the salesman told me and I am now preparing myself to go to a technician so they could fix my pc problem which means I need to spend another P500 for the labor. I've been having a lot of problem on this PC lately and I am really on the brink of giving up and just give it away. I will just save some money so I could buy a new one. Luckily, I tried researching about my pc problem and was able to stumble upon a forum that says I need to disable the existing built in sound card in bios before the new sound card could work. BIOS? This is the first time I'll gonna mess with BIOS thingy and I am so hesitant to do it. But the instruction seems so easy so I tried following it. I was chatting with my friend melai about it and I jokingly told her that if I did not respond to her message after I disable the sound card in BIOS, it means my computer got busted. LOL. Anyways, I tried doing the steps as instructed and after restarting the PC...whoala! I can now hear sounds when I play you tube! Yahoo! God helped me save another P500 for technician fee. Thank you Lord for guiding me and for letting me realize the value of perseverance and faith. I am now a certified computer technician! Amen!


I've Got A New Griller

Haller everyone! I'm back! Today is my restday and I am happy that I was able to spend the whole day with my lappy and my hubby (rhyming?) We'll just earlier today, I asked my hubby to buy me an electric griller...I don't know why I just suddenly asked him to buy one, and because my hubby is so "masunurin" as he is...he hurriedly went to Waltermart Munoz to buy one for me. He texted me saying he was not able to see the griller we saw before which only costs P1,200, but he does have an option to buy a bigger one and more expensive. I just asked him to go to SM North to check if there is a cheaper option and luckily there is! It only cost him P999 for a large griller like this:

He bought a fish (maya maya), tokwa, togue, and liempo. I hurriedly made fish fillet and seasoned it with salt and pepper. I also marinated the pork liempo with soy sauce and calamansi. Our lunch was superb! I love it!

We just can't get enough of our griller so we again cooked grilled liempo for dinner together with my favorite tokwa...

and he also made Banana Con Yelo so I could eat while I work on my blogs. Thank you baby!


My To Do List

Wow, indeed time flies so fast! I made it! I am still alive and kicking, I still have my job, I still have warm clothes over my body and a roof on my head and most importantly… I still have my complete family with me. There has been a lot of things that happened last year, there has been happy and sad experiences, but in general...year 2009 has been a great year for me.

Now, I am again facing a new year, a new chance to go back to square one and start all over. I know I was'nt able to do what I have written in my new years resolution list last year but this time, I intend to make it to reality. Here are some of my to do list this year.

On the top of my list is to lose weight. I know I was able to succeed with this last year... I lost almost 20 lbs because I enrolled myself in a gym but I easily gained it after my subscription ended. I lost motivation too soon. This time, I want to make it for real. I would need to lose at least 30 lbs off my weight, at least 30. I want to get married next year and I want to look pretty on my wedding dress.

Secondly, I would need to save, save, save! I need to save at least a third of what I am earning in preparation of my retirement on year 2012. I would like to retire soon and just worked on my blogs and my online job. I believe that I need not devote myself in a full time job if I want to enjoy life to the fullest. I need to spend half of my day working and the other half of it should be spent on things I love the most. I also would like to buy a car, a small car for me and my hubby. A cadillac would be fine and I would buy cadillac accessories to adorn it. Haha, I wish! Kidding aside, a low cost but efficient car would be enough for us.

Thirdly, read more and more and more books!

Finally, I need to go back to church. I was'nt able to go to Church for almost six years already. I know more than anything else, I need to invest in my spiritual life. This life we are living right now is just temporary, there is a longer, better life after this and that is what we should be mindful of. I also intend to finish reading the Bible.

This is again another fresh start for all of us, don't waste each and every opportunity God has given us to start over.
