Today, I happened to talk to someone so dear to me. It's been over three years since the last time I glanced on her lovely face and charming personality.

Through YM and friendster, we were able to exchanged thoughts, shared experiences and plans and talked like old times.

She is Raesha Tan, daughter of my mentor. I met her 8 years ago. Now she is 18 years old and grew up to be a very responsible and respectful young woman. Her pretty face and personality are very attractive to young men and women as well. Yes, she had a couple of failed relationships. Indeed, she found a good man and they are together for over 2 years now.

So far, she is doing great with school. I just hope she'll finish her studies.

Thank you for sharing your time, SHa.

So there was a solar eclipse

I had no idea it was happening that night. To bad!! Eclipse comes once in a blue moon. That is why I am kinda frustrated of witnessing this kind of event.

GMA-7 news is my eyes and ears away from my home country Philippines. This website is very informative and is free.

So I was browsing each and every news and read about the solar eclipse which happened last MOnday, January 25, 2009. And how lucky Indonesians were for they are the only few in the world to witness the moon as it passed across the sun's path at 4:40 p.m., covering 92 percent of the sun's diameter and leaving a white, flaming ring of fire that lasted about four minutes.

It must be nice to be in Indonesia. It has been awhile and I want to see it again.

My bet bagged the crown

Beauty pageant is one of my frustrations. I have been wanting to join but seemed I don't have some of the qualities to be a contender. Firstly, I am not as tall as Julia Roberts nor as pretty as she is. Confidence is all what I have but is not enough though.

So last night was the most awaited Miss America beauty pageant. The selection was so thrilling for me. I had a couple of choices and so glad they made it to be the finalists.

To top it most, my bet bagged the crown. Katie Stam is Miss America 2009. She looked so shock, speechless and teary-eyed after Mario Lopez announced her name.

Staying up late was worth it. What an awesome night!

New young celebrities

The Obama kids are the newest celebrities of today.

By just looking at the pictures and on television, I find them so simple. It might be that it's not sinking in their heads yet that their father is now the president of the United States.

Such lucky kids, eh?

It is really a drastic change in their lives. Now I am wondering how they are taking such fame.

Anyway, best wishes to the first family!

Ex-president's mother passes away

Matriarch Doña Mary Ejercito, mother of Philippine actor-politician Joseph Ejercito Estrada passed away. The ex-President's friends and relatives gathered around and bade farewell to Doña Mary Ejercito. She laid to rest in the family mausoleum at San Juan public cemetery last Saturday.

It is still fresh in my mind the controversies faced by the Estrada or Ejercito family years ago. If you haven't asked, I am one of his voters. My heart saddened when he was ousted from the Malacanang and the rest that happened to him. Nevertheless, he surpassed all of it.

Anyway, I'd like to extend my sympathy to the grieving family.

New year, new cell phone! get it for free

When we speak of new year, we often incorporate it to just everything new. We plan of changing some aspects in ourselves particularly losing our weight. Redecorate each and every area in our homes just like what I just did. Buying new stuff -- gadgets, electronics and more.

In connection to what I am talking above, I would like you to know that I know someone who is very much fond with gadgets. She almost have everything that comes out in the market. Oh, and how can I forget her collection -- her cell phones. She has more or less four of Sprint phones. Now it's making me to think if she is using all of it. She might have a color scheme or might have a schedule. What do you think? I don't want to ask her though. It's like invading her privacy.

She is actually the one who told me about the free cell phones from Bestincellphones.com. Now I know where and how she got her phones.

So my curiosity led me to browse Bestincellphones.com. True to what my friend said, the website offers free cell phones. There is a huge selection or deals like verizon cell phones and you can get a Motorola Q9m. Also, there is free cell phone sale offered for a limited time only.

How awesome is it if you are going to have cell phone family plans for a lower cell phone bill? That is a very good start for this new year, eh?.

Just a sigh

It's been a while since I have created entries for submission to the infamous advertising network. I am not earning much anymore from such. Advertisers are looking for high PR blogs and yet pay an ample amount for hundreds of words.

I am just happy that there is one more affiliate that us very consistent with it's system.

Some of my friends are looking for a permanent job now. They can no longer depend on paid blogging to pay some of their bills. Too bad for me as I can't do the same. I have a daughter who needs attention.

Well, well, well (sigh). It's true! nothing is permanent in this world. Everything will just come and go and so is blogging or google PR.

For now, I will still stick to this crap. Let's see what's going to happen later.

Q & A (friendster)

My friendster account is filled with questions. I responded to some but time came when I got tired of answering the same questions. To sum it up, I am going to retell it here for the last time.

  • Q1 - Why you did not tell us you are in America now?
Firstly, it is none of your business. Lastly, I did not plan any way to tell anybody besides my family. Even my grandparents, Uncles, Aunts and close friends did not know I left Philippines.

  • Q2 - Why you got married in the US?
That you can't witness my wedding lol. It is the most practical way.

  • Q3 - Why you did not indicate your real age in your profile?
Do I have to?

  • Q3 - WHen are you going back to the Philippines?
After we have packed our things, purchased our tickets and check-in at the airport.

  • Q4 - Where is my Christmas gift?
If you did not receive one then you are not or have never an important person in my life. Only those who molded me are my priorities.

  • Q5 - Why you don't go out with us?
I know you are thinking my husband is so strict. I will let you think with your own belief. For me, he isn't. He praises me always. He is the best husband a woman can have. FYI, actually he is telling me to go out with some FIlipinas around but I refuse to for reasons I am keeping myself.

If you have more questions, I might or not answering anymore if it pertain to my life.

Travel medical insurance

When you travel, do you purchase travel medical insurance? If not, we're on the same boat. It is not that I did not want to when I flew from Philippines to the United States but it' because I did not have any idea about it.

Now, I will make it a point that we'll have travel medical insurance before we left for a vacation in the Philippines.

I hope you will do the same. This may sound unnecessary but you can not predict the future. There might be cases that you will need it. Our lives are very precious, we have to save it as much as we can.

Saving memories

Most of my files especially photos are unsaved in my hard drive. I prefer doing so in case my computer breaks again. It happened before and it will happen again. A computer virus attacked my system which led to breaking the rest of the set.

So now I have my own flash drive for a back up. I saved photos and other files in it. I find it so easy to access as well. I just plug the USB in and I am good to go.

If you value the memories you've build, I suggest that you save it in a flash drive if you can't afford other innovative products. You can purchase such at Buy.com for a lesser price.

One Sunday afternoon

Just put my daughter to sleep. Oh boy, she is so fussy this fine Sunday afternoon. She just wanted to be held and rocked. It is so tiring for she is so heavy. In less than three minutes of holding her seems like I have been in a marathon catching my breath. My arms are sore as well. Well, yes I complain at times but it's part of motherhood.

Now I am relaxing while she is asleep. Just listening to my favorite music with headphones on my ears. Music soothes and calms me by the way.

ADT security systems

When I got married, I really did insist for a home security system. Though my husband is a law enforcer, still we'll never know that there are circumstances which may occur beyond our control. So far, it's doing well. We never have problems with the system itself as a whole.

Our neighbor by the way has the same system as we do. There was a time when they were out of town and burglars tried to sneak in. Hence, the plan of stealing did not push through because the alarm went on. To make it shorter, neighboring houses which includes us and the police came over. So they were caught!

Having a security system is necessary. It gives us a peace of mind knowing that we and our properties are protected in any how. This innovation has lessen the crime statistics that is why more and more houses and establishments have it.

If you are still dwelling in your belief that security system is not worth it, then it's time for you to make a move. Get in touch with ADT for details and purchase as well. ADT has my recommendation because we have it and so are the millions of households and business centers.

Fun, free and safe online games


The emergence of technology has brought us into a virtual world. Now we can play games such as basketball, football, soccer, badminton and more through our own game consoles. Hence there are some of us who prefer to play online and I am one of those. I have been into this thing for quite sometime. Obviously, I enjoyed it.

But hey, some online games are not child-friendly at all. As a parent, educational and child-friendly games should take place in my child's activities . My daughter is too young though but I have to start now to be a good example.

It is for that reason that I am recommending and suggesting that you to take a tour on ActionAllStars.com. If you want your children to have fun, then this is it. I tried playing myself and I tell you I had a great time. The first thing I did was signed-up as well as created my own avatar. After some processes, I was able to access the website and toured the NBA Baller hall, Diamond ring and the football field. While on tour, I played some of the coolest games such as basketball and baseball. Playing is easy through the given instructions. Just drag and click your mouse and you are good to go. I say that this website is educational. Children will learn techniques, enhance skills and broaden their imagination. Most of all it's safe for parents have to give consent before a child can play. Let me just point it out that this website is for free.

By the way, the left photo is my avatar. I customized it using all the selections on the website.

I already have bookmarked the page for easy access on my free time. Do the same as well. You'll never get wrong.

Saving for our vacation

By April or May next year (2010), we are heading to the PHilippines to visit my family. Hopefully, we'll have a hindrance-free road. We are so excited to introduce Dannielle, our daughter to her Lola (grandma), lolo(grandpa), titos (Uncles) and titas(Aunts), cousins and other relatives.

In preparation to that, we are starting to save in addition to our budget. We'll never know how much we're going to spend there knowing that I have a lot of relatives.

Anyway, I told hubby to get me a piggy bank lol. He said I don't need one and thought I was just kidding. Well, I am not. I am serious in this saving thing.

Megabrand's magnet toys

There is something in magnets that make a toy superb. For everyone to know, I enjoyed playing with it when I was a kid and even 'til now with a daughter around. My Dannielle is six months old and enjoys every toy she sees and plays. Hence, her toys are limited for her age.

Speaking of magnets, I was browsing megabrands.com today and found a large selection of magnetic toys. Since my child is too young to play with these kinds of toys, I can not purchase one for her yet. Hence, I have a three year old niece who is such an adorable and playful little one. What I am planning to get for her is the Girlz Systems Ultimate. This toy is very colorful which most kids wants with colors such as pink, purple, peach and blue color with metallic balls. More so, it would help her sharpen her mind as well as build and widen her imagination. There are so many features about this product that I found valuable and useful and if you want to know more, you can go ahead and check it out at megabrands.com.

So if you want to make your little one happy especially on his or her special day, a simple gift such as magnet toy is I believe the answer. I suggest to purchase it at Megabrands, one of the largest online stores selling toy magnet in usa.
