Be A PRO Poker Player

I have been very interested in joining online casinos but I am quite hesitant to even try to bet because I know that the risks of losing what I bet are very high since I am a newbie and playing casino games has never been my forte.

But if I was given a chance to play in an online casino or the real deal at Las Vegas then the game that I would play would be poker. You see I am a person who believes in the use of the brain and statistics rather than pure luck. Plus with Texas Holdem Poker Strategies I am sure to be on the winning streak!

Why am I so confident that I'll win if ever I play poker? Well you see there is a free poker calculator that Hold'em Radar is so generously sharing to everyone. With the help of mathematics one's cards are analyzed and with the help of the opponents moves the odds are calculated and one would be given real-time strategy advice.

Playing with the calculator offline or online one would be given a No Limit Winning Strategy that one would really master and one can even develop his/her own strategy to win in any poker game like a PRO!

A Memorandum/Directive to All David Archuleta Fans

As you may have already guessed, I am a die-hard David Archuleta fan and I am proud to say that I am an "Arch Angel".

We all may have heard the name David Archuleta from our friends or from anyone who have watched American Idol. For young teenage girls, they would scream and shout his name because they find him cute and adorable. Some would describe him as a young artist with a mature and musical soul.

Right now David Archuleta is in the Top 5 of American Idol. I know and am very confident that he will surely land a spot in the Top 3 (online polls indicate that the top 3 most favorite AI contestants are David Archuleta, Jason Castro, and David Cook).

But as the admin of has mandated to all it's members, we Arch Angels should be on guard and give twice the effort in voting for David Archuleta. I am not liking what I see on online polls because David sometimes is on the 2nd or 3rd rank. He lands the 1st rank but also landing any rank beside from no. 1 is not good.

So to all Archuleta fans, if we still want to continue to hear music that comes from the heart then please support David by voting for him at American Idol. If you're not American and live outside the United States you could still support David by buying his studio version of his songs through iTunes or vote for him on online polls so that producers would have their eyes on our David so that he could continue to sing for us even if he's taken away from AI (hopefully never!):


VOTE#1 Poll

Here are some Voting Do's and Dont's from


UTILIZE YOUR ENERGY/RESOURCES WISELY. During the voting time block, use as much resources (both hands, 3 phones, etc) as you can. Such resources include your effort and energy, so save them for voting instead of nitpicking, over-analyzing and doubting Archie. We have no more room for negativity across the boards [Check: Ignoring Trolls for Dummies], so everyone just lighten up and trust Archie. Save your energy, and vote hard on Tuesday.

VOTE FIRST! When its time to vote, just vote vote vote. Remember that the message boards and websites do not shut down after performances, and thus the need to "post" online during voting hours whould only come second to your voting. Your comments and spazzing out can wait, but your votes can't. So vote FIRST. Chat, Post and Download LATER.

WHEN TO START VOTING? We have to put in as much votes as we can. Some people have confirmed that voting lines actually open during the "recaps" after the last performer, some even claim it starts at the middle of the last performer's song. So start voting by then. That would give us angels at least a few minutes (and a couple of votes) headstart.

TEXTING, GOPHONE, etc. Texting proves to be the FASTEST to vote as some have confirmed, to know more about it READ HERE.This would be very helpful especially if you have a little extra. It wouldnt hurt to spend a little to be able to take Archie to the top! 40$ for a Gophone would allow you to vote unlimited for him thru text. You may consider this.

VOTING OUTSIDE THE US? International voters who wish to vote may use gizmo.Download Gizmo HERE. I myself, am an international fan and I use this. Once the voice prompt says "Thank you for choosing...", there's no need to wait for him to finish. Hang up, and dial again. See THIS THREAD for more details.

My Money Was Refunded

I am so happy when SponsoredReviews sent me an e-mail saying that they had already sent me my payment through PayPal. If you have read my other post, PayPal Dilemmas, you would remember that I lost $27.95 due to someone breaking into my account and changing my PayPal address so that they could steal from me my hard earned earnings...

But after all of that I was quite happy with SponsoredReviews that they were so professional about the matter and that they responded quickly to my complaint and they refunded me my hard earned money which was lost in the first place due to a breach in their system but all of that is behind me now and on wards with my blogging life. :)

Feeling Guilty

I felt really bad and sort of guilty by the way I treated my brother's girlfriend. In my post, Extraneous Variables, I expressed how I felt about her how I didn't like her and didn't know why. Verpo commented that he felt the same way and that he also didn't like the friends of his friends and he also didn't know why.

After looking at the picture taken last 2 nights ago of me, my mom, my brother and his girlfriend I noticed that they were all smiling. It was only me with a frown on my face. I would like to post the picture but the camera is with my brother right now. Anyway she looked so innocent and kind and I looked like the antagonist of a teledrama serye (television drama series) where she's the poor girl who was hated by someone.

Well I didn't do anything bad to her just completely ignore her and stay away whenever she's around (plus a gloomy face on) but other than that we never had verbal or even eye contact. I don't do eye contacts to a stranger.

But I don't know why I disliked her and now I'm guilty for disliking her. It's so confusing. It just proves that I am human after all with stupid emotions.

The Sedona Method

Have you ever wanted to be at peace? I mean literally in a state of euphoria where all your anger, fears, greed, stress, and all those human emotions just simply melt away. How easy it is if you could just let go of all the baggages that you have and just move on with your life being happy and content. With The Sedona Method, you could achieve lasting happiness, success peace, and emotional well-being.

How The Sedona Method is the bridge between The Secret and the Law of Attraction is not very confusing and very easy to understand. So first what is the Law of Attraction? The Law of Attraction is the state where you hope and wish for something to happen and it will happen. It relies on the principle "Like attracts Like". What you want will come when you want it. But the problem with us humans is when we want to make something happen we use the of personal will (ego). We may end up getting what we want but we don't let go of the thoughts and feelings that we have to achieve our goals so we end up being miserable while causing misery to other people too!

What's beautiful about The Sedona Method is that you are able to attract your goals by dissolving rather than strengthening your ego. We don't have to force ourselves to think positive and over stress our selves into forcing ourselves to go to the direction we want.
"With The Sedona Method we create what we want by letting go of our imaginary sense of limitation, our incessant need for more, our desire for the goal, and our attachments and aversions to the goal – in short, ego itself. By creating through letting go of every goal, we also support ourselves in awakening."

Wow! This is one way to reach a spiritual enlightenment indeed. Please visit the website of The Sedona Method to learn more about this wonderful key to set ourselves free from all negativity and to get your free DVD and CD!

What I Will Miss In the Philippines

I have been reading Mrs. APB's post about her wishing to go home to the Philippines as one of wishes on her wish list and me being curious and all asked her how long she has been away from the Philippines and then she had created an entry that answered my question.

Well for me I will miss the fiestas of course and all those Filipino-made dishes like dinuguan, batikolon, anything ginataan, and all those deserts that I love eating but don't know their name hehehe. Oh if you're not Filipino, fiesta is a time where the whole barrio (town) celebrate the feast day of the town's venerated saint. In my neighborhood our saint is St. Lorenzo Ruiz and his feast day is on September 28.

The only fiesta that is most memorable to me (and the most recent one) was the fiesta at Patag, Cagayan de Oro City. I remember that day very well because after our duty at the hospital our friend and duty mate Melissa invited everyone to her house to celebrate their fiesta. Of course everyone had their game face on and party mode is switched on. We didn't even bother going home first to change our duty uniforms and headed straight to Melissa's house. It was still early and dinner time was still 2-3 hours away so we decided to take a nap. Yup sleeping is a leisure for nurses that's for sure. After napping we bonded with each other sharing stories and then we ate dinner watched a DVD then went home to study for tomorrow's big exam.

I'll miss my friends, my duty mates, my school, and those precious bonding moments that we have. I'll miss my life... because I know that life in Canada would be quite different. But we'll see.

Extraneous Variables

I don't know why I hate her... no I don't hate her that's too harsh of a word. More like, I dislike her and I don't know why. I can't be fake but I can't stand it when I'm around her. Who am I talking about? No other than my brother's girlfriend. Actually I never did like my brother's girlfriends ever since I caught my brother alone with one of her friends in my parents room alone with the door locked. I don't think so that a genius is needed to guess what they were trying to do.

Sure this present girlfriend is better than her past girlfriend who was a liar, obsessed, and manipulative [censored]. Imagine she had the nerve to talk back to my mom (well just through SMS really) but if ever she talked back to my mom and I was there I would wring her neck!

Sure the present girlfriend somehow helped my brother get through high school and has become my brother's new bodyguard/slave I still don't like her and I don't know why.

There were two occasions that was supposed to be only a family affair when she was around and I was pissed off. My mom invited her of course but I'd rather be not included in activities that she is included like the outing to Obrero and my mom's birthday dinner.

I don't know why but I don't really like any of my brother's friends and I don't know why... is it because I'm anti-social? Or is it because his friends are I are just in a completely different wavelength.

Maybe this is why there are people I can't relate to because of this "wavelength" thing...

I know people who are just like me so maybe this time I kind of respect them more since well, they're like me.

Wear The Right Pants

My brother loves wearing BDU pants and I mean love! He wears it every day and I even wonder if he even washes them. For those who have no idea what BDU pants are these are pants used by the military and the police hence the name Battle Dress Uniform (BDU).

But I don't blame my brother for wearing them. It's really comfortable as it is made of cotton and it's very durable. They may seem to be hot but they're actually very cool to wear and what's best about some BDU pants is that they are stain resistant so even if you play in the mud and spill food on them the stain and grime comes of easily with just water since the pants are sprayed with Teflon (kind of wish there were BDU pants for kids huh?).

To My Dear Blogger Friends

Hello friends! I'm very sorry if I'm taking too long to respond to your comments and e-mails. I've been very busy creating my new website and I have been going out with my friends lately so I'm really so busy. I still have a lot to things to do like finish checking my mom's papers (and just now she asked if I had already packed my things - and nope I'm not finished haven't even started, Lol!).

I think that I might be gone for a while since I'll try to finish one thing at a time (and that's not packing my bags hahaha!) since multi-tasking is not getting me anywhere.

So if I'm not in the blogosphere I'm at my new website updating it. ^_^

Get Your Boots

I think everyone likes wearing boots. I love wearing boots. My mom loves wearing boots. My brother, well he likes flip flops, but my dad on the other hand will not wear anything but boots.

Boots are very stylish and are very comfortable to wear. Who would have guessed that work boots could also be fashionable? Yup work boots were designed to be durable and to last a lifetime. Some boots are designed to meet your needs too. So if you want a boot that has an insulator, a waterproof boot, a steeled-toe boot, slip resistant boot, or any kind of boot at all, there is bound to be a work boot for you.

So if you're looking for that boot that suites your needs, I totally recommend because they specialize in work boots so you can select the style and even brand of the boot you want and need.

I Have Been Hacked!

I can't talk about the details because an investigation is still undergoing. All that I can say is that I have been one of the victims whose account was hacked by some professional hackers in an attempt to intercept my payment through PayPal.

It was quite shocking but I'm glad that only $28 was stolen from me and not all of my money. I am quite glad that I took certain precautions when I set up my PayPal account and other accounts for that matter. I'm glad that only one account was hacked and they had no access to my other accounts.

So how do you protect your self from becoming a victim of being hacked? Here are my advice:
  1. I recommend that your password is not a word you can find in the dictionary, includes both capital and lower case letters, and contains at least one special character (1-9, !, *, _, etc.).
  2. Do not have the same password for every account.
  3. Refrain from joining unsafe websites or even entering one. Download McAfee SiteAdvisor to protect yourself from Phishing sites who tries to get your personal details.
  4. Always check your Account Details especially your PayPal information to ensure that your payment will go to you and not anyone else.
I really was down after losing my money but I'm now over it as the crooks only got away with that and not my total savings. Plus the site is willing to repay me for the money I lost. It was actually their shortcoming that their database was hacked and it was not my fault. But even if they won't pay me somehow I feel that the universe will compensate me for all the negative things that happens to me... that's karma and I love it! ^_^

Update: You can also checkout Julaina's (aka Mrs. Arm-Pit-Bull) on her post about PayPal Scams.

Short on Cash? No Problem.

I guess all of us (not including those filthy rich people who can burn money anytime they want) have experienced running out of cash when we really need it. It's not that we are broke or anything but there are times when we get to spend too much because we just bought a new car or the laptop we wanted with our credit card so we overspent and went beyond our monthly money allowance and our next pay day is still some days ahead.

so what do we do for the meantime as we wait for our next pay day? Do we cut down our expenses and have a temporary change in our lifestyle? Believe me, a change in your lifestyle can be quite depressing, but you don't have to cut down on anything because we could just avail our selves with a cash loan.

Well in that way we just get a loan to get by for just a few days and then when we get our pay check we could just pay our loan and continue to love our happy carefree lives. It is quite helpful that there are payday loans out there that could help us in our times of needs.

When I was young I bet my mom was also experiencing the same problem about being short on cash (she didn't avail of payday loans then) because there are times that we live luxuriously and then there are times when we have to be thrifty and spend our money on more important things. This roller coaster is really confusing especially to the kids and I couldn't help myself and asked my mom, "Mommy are we poor?".

But now I don't feel that roller coaster anymore, this may be perhaps my mom now avails of cash loans.

Still Loving Pokemon

I just watched Pokemon awhile ago and it brings so many memories to me. I have to admit that I'm a Pokemon Manic and I simply love Pokemon. I don't know what made Pokemon so lovable that I was so addicted to it. Yup I was addicted I watched the series, bought the DVD's, have a sticker collection of Pokemons, I even played the various Gameboy Advance Pokemon games from the very first Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow (Love this one), Green, Gold, Silver, Sapphire, Ruby and even Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Snap on a console that I forgot (I used an emulator hehehe bad me)!

I remember being so frustrated at my mom because she won't let me watch Pokemon because it was for kids I really cried (hey I was still in grade school at that time ok?). I was so hooked to Pokemon that I sleep at around 1 am and then wake up real early the following morning. And when my old laptop broke down my first reaction wasn't "My Mom is going to kill me!" rather I thought, "No! My Pokemons!". The story of the game is quite captivating and the characters are cute. But as the number of Pokemon increased (from 150 to 493!) and the way Pokemon evolved and had new pre-evolutions (Pikachu came from Pichu) it just made it all confusing and sadly I grew tired of Pokemon.

Hahaha! I'm such a Poke nerd but I'm proud of it. Even thought the gameplay gets to be repetitive and predictable I still get lost in the story and it would be great to travel the world with your best buddies (the Poke Pals, Lol).

Oh if you're asking my favorite Pokemon is Charmander and whenever I play Pokemon I make sure that my team are composed of Dragon Types like Charizard, Dragonite, Gyrados, Kingdra, Aerodactyl, and I like Onyx too (not a Dragon type but I like huge Pokemons). I don't like Pikachu hahaha! I also had a friend once who had a crush on Ash Ketchum! Like what? Hahaha! Hmm... memories just flow in.

One thing I don't quite understand with Pokemon is why do you have to collect and catch them all if they're your friends? So when you capture 6 pokemons the others you catch get sent to the PokeFarm and what do they do there? And why do Pokemons want to fight other Pokemons? And do trainers feed their Pokemon and let them out once in a while out of their Pokeballs? I have so many thoughts in mind but I then remembered that Pokemon is just fiction hehehe. ^_^

Finding the Right Mortgage

When my family and I are going to move this June we're just going to rent an apartment. But sooner or later we must buy our own home because renting an apartment is okay but time will come when paying those monthly apartment bills will be too heavy and even if you want to make some improvements at your apartment, you can't because it's not yours.

That's why my family and I would need to find the right mortgages to help us buy or build our dream home. When I was surfing the web and comparing different companies that offer different kinds of mortgages, I have realized that there are several types of mortgages for different kinds of buyers with different kinds of needs. There are people who need to refinance an old mortgage, some needs to buy a new home, and others use mortgages as a home equity line (that's when you use your house as a collateral for a loan).

It would be obvious that we fall under the people who need to buy a new home but even knowing what category we fall to there are still too many numerous mortgages to choose from. That is why you'll need a service like so that they can help you find that mortgage that perfectly suite your needs and budget.

Blogger Templates: Remove the NavBar

Blogger Templates: Remove the NavBar

If you've been to my blog a few days ago you would have noticed that my blog navbar was a bit placed in the wrong place so I decided to remove it. Good thing for me existed and my blogging problems were solved. What I like about this site is that they have pictures to go with their detailed instructions so newbies like me who have little knowledge about CSS and HTML programing could blog like pros (well just a teeny weeny bit).

Again my gratitude to and yes they also have free blogger templates (both CSS & HTML) so why don't you guys check this blog out.

Why Do You Have So Much Money?

Well I don't have that much but my mom asked me why I had so much money. It was actually a pretty weird situation for me because never have I expected my mom to ask me that question. Well I did tell her that much of my money that I have now was from my Nursing Garage Sale, which by the way is a great success!

My profit from my garage sale was a whooping Php 5125 or $125. Well and not to mention my other profit from blogging so yeah, I'm earning quite good. I guess that my summer have been really productive huh? Hehehe.

But still, I do blogging for the fun of it. ^_^

Career Options: Sonography Tech

I'm really serious about my future and right now I've been busy looking for other career paths aside from nursing and I have found another medical career that fits my interest and that's being a Sonography Technician.

So what is the job description? Well you operate and assist in the use of a high-tech ultrasound machines to direct waves to create an image of different parts of the body like the brain, eyes, and abdominal organs. Another interesting moments in a Sonography tech life is that he gets to share with the patients the joy and wonder when they have a video image of a fetus inside a mother's womb. You really get to appreciate God and all his wonders as you observe that fetus grow and mature as the mommy goes for her monthly check-ups.

And the pay is also good (average salary falls between $41,420 and $56,020 per annum) and your sure that you will be in demand since sonography/ultrasound is a standard operating procedure in hospitals so that doctors could easily and safely diagnose a patient's condition.

So if you're like me who is looking for other career paths in the medical field why not check out sonography and visit your nearest sonography schools for more info. And guess what, some universities offer online schooling for those who are working or have part time jobs.

What I Do When I'm Alone

The Singer by ~MargaritaMix on deviantART

Yup that's what I do when I'm alone. I sing! No one really knows this but I love singing. I just don't want anyone to hear me singing because I'm not that good yet. Whenever I'm alone at home I always try to record a song but so far I haven't finished any recordings yet.

I actually sound good but I'm a bit shy so I don't really try to reach the high notes because my house is near the highway and people might hear me. But wait... what do I care? I'm moving and who are they to judge me sing? They're not Simon Cowell! Hahaha! My dad will be leaving soon with my younger brother so the house will be mine. Therefore, neighbors prepare your ear plugs cause I'm gonna sing! Actually I prefer to be in a sound proof room right now or better, in the middle of nowhere.

I plan to sing Angels that Robbie Williams sang. Well I only liked Angels when David Archuleta sang it (no offense Robbie, I think you're a great artist ^_^). So guys wait for my recording of Angels hahaha!

If you want to hear Angels by David Archuleta just click HERE.

Why Not Become An X-Ray Technician

Ok, in my last post I said that I might not be able to finish my Bachelor of Science in Nursing or maybe I'd pursue another career in the medical field. As they say, when a door closes enter a window! I've found another great medical career that I know I'll definitely go into if my plans for nursing don't push though. And what career is this? No other than being an x-ray technician.

What a better way to work in the hospital and you're pretty much in demand because x-ray diagnostics is a routine procedure in every hospital. And take note that the median wage for an x-ray technician is $40,000. That's more like a registered nurse's salary!

But let's not talk about money. Being an x-ray technician is also quite interesting as you get to work with state of the art equipments like X-rays, MRI's (magnetic resonance imaging), and CT (computerized tomography) Scanners. Plus you don't have to suffer like some nurses who have a lot of patients to handle, illegible doctor handwritings, and some very irritable patients.

So if you're a nurse you only need to study for one year and you could already be an x-ray technician. Even I, who have finished a 2 year Associate In Health Science Education, could qualify as an x-ray technician so I already have another career path if ever nursing does not work for me.

Blogger's Crisis

I'm having a little problem right now. I have said that I've bought my own domain and I am pretty happy about that. I have always wanted to have my very own website that carries my name and is not under any subdomain or domain name extensions like .blogspot (Sorry Blogger but I still do love you! ^_^), .wordpress, .anything.

Now my objective is done but I have a big problem and I am having a difficult time choosing whether I should create a new blog or to simply move one of my blogs to my own domain. Here are some of the pros and cons that I have seen:

1. Creating a NEW Blog
  • Pros - I start a fresh blog where I could integrate my nursing life, personal life, and blogging life. More like of a hybrid of my Grim Angel (personal life) & My Nurses Notes (student nurse life). I plan to name my new blog as "Angel in the Sickroom" Lol! ^_^ And as always I'll place a Photoshop edited picture of myself in a nursing uniform with wings [still black, white is good but I prefer black because I'm the Angel of Death (hence Grim Angel) hahaha!].
  • Cons - Managing 3 blogs would be difficult (even managing my 2 blogs now is quite difficult) so I have to let go of My Nurses Notes.
2. Moving My Present Blogs to my Own Domain
  • Pros - All my links would still work and my readers wouldn't find it difficult to find me.
  • Cons - I might be penalized for a duplicate blog or whatever since I moved some of my posts from my Grim Angel to My Nurses Notes. No wonder my PR of Grim Angel dropped from 1 to 0. I actually didn't know that. ^_^ Now I know. And I do want to start a fresh blog...
Wait I think I just found my answer to my problems. I just have to make a new blog that's fresh. I won't delete My Nurses Notes but I won't be updating it anymore. It will just stand there as an archive for my posts (I really took some time and effort making some of my posts on My Nurses Notes so I'll really miss it. I could just move it but I don't want to risk my new blog as tagged as a duplicate.

So I have to say good bye to my beloved My Nurses Notes and welcome my upcoming blog Angel in the Sickroom. I really like the name. I'm not sure if I will be a nurse (I could be a doctor or a med technician) so it's kind of a safe name right? I was thinking of Angel in the Alleyway but that's David Archuleta's song hahaha!

Escaping from Debt

I have been watching some TV shows lately and I have noticed that some kids or even the kid-at-heart find shopping as a favorite pass-time. Well I have nothing about shopping since I too love to shop but I only shop when I have the money. What I have noticed is that some people shop and shop until they drop using their credit cards.

Oh yes I have always loved the great power of this plastic that could buy you everything you $desired in the mall with one swipe. I remember the first time I bought anything with a credit card (not mine, my mom's) and that was my laptop. Being able to buy anything is a great adrenaline rush.

But reality check! You have to pay for all of the things you've bought later. And this is where hell breaks loose. Some people even have multiple credit cards and when the credit card statement arrives, you sure wish you had another credit card to get out of this mess. One keeps using their credit card and what they're earning can't meet all the cost that they have incurred and where does this lead to? DEBT! Piles and piles of debts.

So how do we find debt relief? Simple, through debt consolidation. Yup that's right, you get a loan to pay up all your debts and other several loans. So if you want to improve your credit roles and stop all those pesky calls from the people you owe money to then better find yourself a debt consolidating agency that could bring you your own debt relief.

PayPal Dilemma

Awe what a sad day this has turned out to be. SponsoredReviews told me that they had sent me $27.95 to my PayPal account but guess what? No payment was received. So I checked my PayPal e-mail that I have stated on my account at SponsoredReviews and my PayPal Address had an additional letter! What? I then panicked and e-mailed that address only to find that the address was not registered to anyone. So I decided to claim that e-mail address and add that e-mail to my PayPal account hoping that my payment would be forwarder to my account but I still don't see any money coming in.

Sure $27.95 may not be that big but it's still money and that could cover one year subscription payment for my new domain. Oh well I have already contacted PayPal and SponsoredReviews about this matter and hope it gets resolved soon.

But one question that bothers me is how in the world did my PayPal e-mail change? I thought I was hacked or something. Guess I have to change my passwords again. If ever I don't get to retrieve that $27.95, well I just have to live with that fact and move on with my life.

As they say, bad things are always replaced with good and vice versa. This balance in life thing is sure is hard to understand.

Being A Teacher Is Hard

Boy, I have said this before but I'll say it again, being a teacher is so freaking hard! I wanted to be a teacher before but now that I'm experiencing one role of a teacher I'm having second thoughts. Yup I did plan on becoming a clinical instructor (CI) some day but I'm having second thoughts right now.

No I do not have a part time as a teacher at some university (because I'm not qualified, Lol). I'm helping my mom with her checking of papers because she's a part-time professor at a local university teaching basic accounting. And checking accounting test papers is so tiring! I hve to check each entry one by one to check if they got the total correctly and that it didn't appear on it's own. I still have 3 days to check them and I guess I'll divide my work on those days to preserve my sanity.

I hate doing so many things at a time. I used to multi-task but I realized that it's best to focus on one activity so that you'll finish more than end up with many unfinished projects/activities. I have my blogging, my new domain to finish, my checking, and guess I have to eat in between too. Wished a day had longer hours so that I could get more finished.

Another New Car

One thing that still confuses me is that a lot of people are saying that the economy is getting bad and all but then here comes my cousin who just bought a new Ford Ranger after he was fed up with his old Mazda car. Here's a pic of his new baby:

Ain't it a beauty? I'm so jealous. Anyway I told him that he should better get a car insurance since you know how it is with robbers. The better looking the car the higher their motivation is to steal. In the US alone, cars get stolen every 26 seconds so one should really be safe than sorry and get a car insurance. I googled car insurance and a lot of companies showed up. You should really get auto insurance quotes so that you'll get an auto insurance that can guarantee your assurance and peace of mind that whenever there's anything that happens to your precious car, you are insured.

And if you're looking for auto insurance quotes within near your area you might want to check out They have free quotes for any vehicle anywhere in just 5 minutes. Cool huh? I'm sure that you'll find everything you need about car insurance there.

Money Problems

I was quite shocked to find out recently that my mom had actually gotten herself a payday cash loan before. I knew that my mom was having some difficulty handling all our finances when my dad stopped working but I never knew that such loans existed.

For those who don't know what payday cash loans are they are loans intended to cover a borrower's expenses until his or her next payday. I find this loans quite helpful really since we can't change the fact that the country's economy is not that good anymore and there are so many price increases but there is no changes in the salary.

Oh well, as long as payday cash loans exists I'm sure that everybody could get by. Good thing we're already moving this June to another country with a better economy.

Manok Nanaman?!

To you guys who don't understand what "Manok Nanaman?!" means, it is a Tagalog phrase that states "What? Chicken Again?!".

Yup for the past few days all that I have been eating is chicken, chicken, chicken... From fried chicken, to Lechon Manok (Barbecued Chicken), to Chicken Inasal (a special Filipino Barbecued Chickendish made), and all the chickens in the world that you could think of.

As the saying goes, you are what you eat meaning... WAIT! I am not a chicken!!!

Anyway but there are some benefits in always eating chicken. It means that my doggie, Missy Pooh, would get to eat her favorite dish: chicken! I don't know why that dog goes loco over chicken. She doesn't eat anything else. She has a few food items that she likes and these are soup bones, chorizo (don't know the English equivalent for that one), and of course her favorite chicken.

Coming Out of My Shell

Well you've just seen a video about my blooper and I just came out of my shell. Speaking of shells I'm craving for gulf oysters right now. Gulf oysters are exquisitely delicious and just simply delectable but they do have some dangers to it. That is why one should be an informed eater as not to end up with a bad stomach or a systemic infection. So enjoy your gulf oysters everyone and make sure that you are not an at-risk consumer of oysters.

Good thing I know something about Oysters or my most embarrassing moment would have included a stomachache and a trip to the hospital.

On Buying a Car

I was asked by my mom to do some errands for her one day, she has asked me to deposit some money to the bank. As usual the bank was filled with so many people and the priority number I got would take a few more hours until it was called. So I decided to read some of the bank brochures to fight my boredom.

The brochure that really caught my interest was about a car loan. I know that I still don't have any job at the moment but I really believe that I should really learn more about car loans so that I could find the car loan that is right for me, cheap monthly payments with little interest.

I've learned that there are many types of auto loans. There are loans for new cars, loans for used cars, and a loan to refinance a current car loan. But there are still so many things for me to know. Good thing that I'm still young and I have enough time to prepare for my dream car. I better start learning more about car loans then.

My New Website!

Yipee! I have done it! One of my dreams have already been met. I have my own personal website at my very own domain! It's not finished yet but my new domain is at!

Yeah I know that I said that I couldn't change the domain that I had registered in ( but turns out that I can. The guys at Technographx were really nice and that they respond to my questions and requests ASAP since you can contact them directly through YM. And I also just found out that Technographx is a Filipino Webhosting Company based in the Philippines (where else would a Filipino company be based? Ireland? ^_^).

Anyway I've decided to get my own domain since one, it's my dream, and two, this blog demoted to a PR 0. So returning to a PR 0 is actually a good thing since it opened a new window to better opportunities. I had fun maintaining this blog and my other blog, My Nurses Notes, and I think it's already time to spread my wings and become a pro-blogger (char, Lol!).

I Want To Protect My Home

Just last night I heard a gang war going on outside my house. It was around 2 am when I heard teenagers screaming and throwing stones at each other. It was an awful experience and what made it worst was that some stones were falling on our roof too...

My God. Why on earth did my father buy a house & lot in this neighborhood? Because it's cheap? Well it has good reasons why it's cheap, it's located in a bad neighborhood. I'm constantly am awakened at night fearing that one of those gang members will break in and steal something. And where there are gangs, vandalism is something very common.

What I need right now is a homeowner's insurance. I want to feel safe all the time even when I'm out of the house. I want to be assured that even if I return to my house that has burned down to the ground or vandalized by some stupid gang.

Also if I want to move out from this bad neighborhood I would need a homeowner's insurance to be able to get a mortgage loan so that I could have that dream house for me and my family in a safe and peaceful neighborhood.

Bought My Own Domain!

Oh my God! I have done something that would definitely change my life forever! I have just bought my very own domain! It's! Yup it's a dream come true. I have always dreamed of having my own personal website and there it is. I was thinking of using or but unfortunately those websites are already taken. I could have chosen my domain to be but that would simply be too long and I've already signed up and paid for my domain (darn it).

This means that I must continue and pursue what I have started and become a registered nurse. Hahaha! Funny how I allow my career to be controlled by my domain's name. But yeah, I am serious with becoming a nurse and I don't see myself as anything else.

Who would have thought that I would actually take this blogger thing to the next level? And if you guys are wondering, yes I used my earnings from my blogging to buy my own domain at You'll be amazed at their very low rates and not to mention that you can pay them through your PayPal account. I got my domain for a very low price of $12 for 1 year!

I hope that my domain gets activated soon (they said within 24 hours) and I can't wait to set it up and design it. Well if ever it gets ready I'll be sure to inform you guys!

Choose Your Friends Carefully

I don't know what some Filipino teenagers are thinking right now and they choose to take a path to self-destruction?! A good example? My stupid brother! He was already almost expelled for illegal possession of Marijuana and now he has entered himself into another mess and I am really frustrated about it. He has joined a "Filipino Gang" called the Bloods. If you're not familiar with this stupidity (that Filipinos are so trying hard to imitate) then let me explain what Bloods is. Bloods is a gang that has a rival gang called the Crips (the Bloods and Crips are mostly composed of Black Americans by the way). The Bloods wear red bandannas on their faces while the Crips wears blue. They have nothing better to do aside from fighting with each other late at night (or early at dawn) throwing stones at each other and disturbing the community's peace.

My brother was even very proud to say that his "gang" is established world wide, which of course is true and another fact would be that these gangs are involved in murders, robberies, drug dealing, among many other criminal pursuits. And the stupid Filipinos (here and abroad) want to imitate these gangs as their idols thinking it's cool. No wonder I received this comment about Filipinos, and I have to say I am ashamed. I am ashamed that some Filipinos are stupid enough to join the Bloods and Crips. Instead of trying to establish their lives in the US or any other part of the world as respected immigrants they want to stand out in their community as juvenile delinquents!

I wouldn't care less if they want to ruin their lives but they had to drag my stupid brother into their none sense! Every day they come to our house looking for my idiot of a brother to join them in what ever gang activity they do (riots, drug usage, and other criminal acts as vandalizing) and who again has to cover for my stupid brother? My mom. What is my brother's problem that he really wants to ruin his life? But actually I don't give a damn if he dies in his gang riots because I'm sick and tired of trying to tell him that what he's going into is wrong. My mom tried her best and even thought of sending him away somewhere far from his stupid gang but my brother told my mom, "What do you care, it's my life!" You moron! As long as you're under the roof of our parents at least have some decency as not to drag our family down with you!

I give up. He's not my child so what do I care. Let my parents handle their son's mess, it's actually their fault for always giving in to his demands and other stupidity. The videos below kind of summarizes what my brother is in to right now. He and some other mislead Filipino youths are going to be great liabilities. The government should do something before anyone gets killed.

For your information: Crips use the symbol BK which means "Blood Killas" while the Bloods use the symbol CK as "Crips Killer"... stupidity I tell you, killing each other for very low reasons...

PR 0?! What the?

The Cast Away Blogger

Ok my blog was never a PR 4 but it was a PR 1 and I'm so proud of that because I worked hard for that but all of the sudden my PR became 0 when it was a PR 1 last night. I am now wondering what I did to deserve such a drop in PR.

This is really so depressing... I don't want to live anymore! Hahaha that's a bit too much. The hell with PR! I blog because I want to and not for some rating (char). But still... ouch!

But honestly I don't think that I've done anything wrong. I even removed my Adbrite Ads since I thought that it made my Adsense earnings drop but ok enough with that.

On with my life... even if I have a PR 0 blog... huhuhu...

Archbishop Oscar Cruz: A Public Sinner

Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz said ‘public sinners’ should not be given the Holy Sacrament of Communion including, he said, President Arroyo. ‘I would not give communion to somebody receiving communion in public whom I know is a public sinner.’ Because to do so would be ‘like throwing the body and blood of Christ into the garbage.' from
What an awful thing to say for a person whose life is supposed to be devoted to God. What gives him the right to condemn and crucify any person (sinner or not) denying them the body and blood of Christ? If I remember the Lord's words when he was asked why he eats with known social sinners as tax collectors and this is what Jesus Christ has answered:
Those who are well have no need for a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous but sinners. (Mark 2:15-17)
Jesus calls for us to love our fellow men but Oscar Cruz calls us to choose a stone and throw it at our President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It is quite unfair that he released such statements in public. We must remember that he is just a man. He has no right to judge who are the sinners because he himself is a sinner.

In fact he is a public sinner himself. He is a liar! A public liar and he had absolutely no shame and lied. Oscar Cruz said that the media misquoted him and had taken his statement out of context that he had never said that he will refuse communion to President GMA and her family but the video recordings of his statements are very clear and are attacks directly made to the president. Video camera recordings don't lie, people do.

Quezon Rep. Danilo Suarez, along with 27 other congressmen, have urged the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines to impose sanctions on Cruz for his statements regarding the President. And if the CBC do not take actions in giving sanctions to Oscar Cruz for conduct unbecoming of an archbishop, congress is willing to take the issue to Vatican.

We have heard of so many rotten priests in the world who are guilty of rape, child molestation, and yes even corruption. Let us all Catholics unite to stop these people from abusing the holy power that was entrusted to them. These are the priests that tarnish the name of the Church and all that is holy.

Mr. Oscar Cruz for lying and being a public sinner why don't you abstain from taking the body and blood of Christ? Better yet condemn yourself like what you do to other people you tag as sinners.

The church is supposed to be an advocate of peace and love. Not hate...

Brownies & The SMS Solution

My mom has a friend who sells these amazing brownies and I have to say that they are heavenly! The Brownie is generously sprinkled with these chocolate kisses and every bite is just so chocolaty. I gave some of my friends a piece and they were immediately hooked. They asked me where they could buy these brownies and I told them that my mom's friend had no store and her products are only sold by word through friends.

I was thinking that the world shouldn't be deprived of these brownies and I thought of ways to reach a lot of people about her products at a very affordable cost. what came into my mind was Cellit Mobile Marketing. With Cellit my mom's friend could reach a thousand or more people about her delicious brownies through people's cellphones. In this day of age almost everyone has a cellphone so text messaging is the way to reach your potential customers.

Cellit also has the amazing sister website House4Cell, a great way for real estate agents to send property information directly to the cellphone screens of their home buyers that are subscribed for them. Pictures can be sent and home buyers can just call, fax, or email the real estate agent for more details through the links provided.

Cellit Mobile Marketing is truly revolutionary and its services are centered on smaller clients like my mom's friend. I'm sure that Cellit will make her business boom and it wouldn't be long till she opens up her own store specializing in deserts and then she could use the services of CouponZap, where she could hand out free coupons to potential customers. And who wouldn't like free stuff right so using mobile marketing is an excellent way of advertising. It's effective, cheap, and it's loads of fun.

I can see it now, people talking of brownies after receiving an SMS about it. I should really talk to my mom's friend soon so that we could be partners. I'll be her advertising manager hahaha.

A Sweet Relationship

Yesterday when I was going home I noticed these two people in the seat in front of me. One was an older gentleman and the other was a young boy (who I've heard was in 4th year high school). They were kind of sweet to each other and I know that they had a special relationship. The boy was kind of sleepy so he rested his head on the man's shoulder and the gentleman placed his arm around the boy's shoulder. They looked so comfortable with each other.

But wait! Before you get the wrong idea and think that they are having a perverted/pedophile kind of relationship let me clarify that these two have a father and son relationship. I had you going there didn't I? Well I at first had the same impression and said to my self how sweet in a lovers kind of way. The young boy was actually good looking so I first thought that the older man was his sugar-daddy hahaha!

But with all that out of our system, I kind of envy the kind of relationship they have (father and son ok?). They really are so close to each other. They're more like of best buddies rather than a paternal & child image. I wished that I had the same relationship with my father so that I could easily express what I feel and just feel safe and comfortable. But I had convinced myself that that wouldn't happen. I'm the kind of person who hold grudges and it's a negative attribute that I have. I had a very bad childhood because of my father who was very abusive. For me he cared more for the things that I accidentally broke as a child than me that is why I hate him. Right now, our relationship is kind of neutral. No hate, but I don't love him too. The respect is there though...

The Blogger Addict

I went down to school today because I had some unfinished business and who do I have with me today? No other than my handy dandy laptop. I didn't want to miss out on the juicy blogging happenings hahaha!

Last night (or a few hours ago) I slept at 2:00 am since I decided to blog hop on all of my blogging friends' blog and boy it was very time-consuming but very fun too! I had seen new updates and learned new amazing stuff from their blogs. I would like to blog hop to their pages every day but I guess that my sanity won't handle it hehehe.

But yeah the Blogger Addict (that's me if you haven't noticed yet, Lol) needs to be comfortable too while blogging. Sure they say that laptops were meant to be used on laps but it's just so uncomfortable and I don't want to bend my back since my back is slouched already hahaha! I made a little blogger space for myself in my room. I set up a nice desk with a chair (that keeps my back straight) and good lighting to avoid blogger eye strain hehehe. ^_^

Oh well, if I'm an addict then I should be addicted in a good and productive way hehehe. To all my fellow blogging addicts, aja! Continue our pursuit for blogging happiness, Lol.

Thank God for Online Phone Cards

For many people out there who needs to make international calls on a daily basis (may it be for business reasons, for calling your loved ones, or simply just to fight boredom) they have one common problem: the tremendous amount that they would have to pay when the telephone bill arrives.

But thank God that prepaid cards were invented. With an online phone card one could save up to 80% or more over regular long distance providers like AT&T, Sprint, and such. You can choose from a variety of phone cards that are suitable for you and the call that you are going to make at a very cheap price. Buying cards online is not only quick but you are also ensured of great voice quality too! In this era, technology has sure protected the integrity of family ties and close bonds with people by making sure that people stay connected even if they live far away. That is why we all should be thankful that we already have an online phone card which we could purchase anytime of the day and immediately.

So if you are interested in buying an online phone card you might want to check out Phone Cards Avenue.

On Changing the Blog HTML and CSS

I have wanted to change the layout and HTML design of my blog for some while now but I realize that doing so would result in the removal of some of my widgets and links. I may want to make my blog more nice looking but the consequences outweighs the benefits so I would rather stick to my old plain blog design.

A blog friend, Ruthi, had changed her blog HTML design and is recently having some trouble with her PayPerPost tools. It seems that her code was erased when she changed her HTML and she's having some difficulty in re-installing her PPP code.

I really am sad for her because I know how frustrating it is to have very good opportunities from PPP pass by because of her present technical difficulty. I had some suggestions that might help her like adding the code before the /body tag and refreshing the code but I'm no expert at HTML codes so it so sad that I can't really help her.

So to bloggers out there who would want to change how their blogs look, better think twice and be sure that you have a good know-how with these confusing HTML and CSS codes. It would be best if you redesigned your blog when you first started the blog.

David Archuleta - When You Believe

Ah! It's already Mariah Carey Week on American Idol and David Archuleta has once again pulled it off with a great song! He really picked a perfect and challenging song, When You Believe. And the judges would have to agree with me that David did a great job! Singing a girl's song is very hard, what made the song more challenging was that this song was not sang by any ordinary girls they were sang by two divas, Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston!

Wow is all that I could say! And David is always smiling and this is one great factor why America would vote for him as the American Idol 2008. What makes David a star are the following ingredients... [(smile + lips) x cute factor + amazing voice] = A Certified Star!

I can't wait for him to sell his album and tour the world! Go David! Oh man! I think that I may just have a serious case of ODD! Obsessive David Disorder! Hahaha!

Mac Games and More!

One downside that I find when using a Mac is that it has a small variety and array of games to choose from. I'm quite of a fantasy RPG player so finding Mac games for a gamer like me is quite hard! Good thing there are sites like which offers not only games but freeware and other mac softwares for you to download for free! Yup you heard me, for free!

So if you're a hardcore gamer and has just switched or just bought yourself a great Apple Computer then Miss teri tale for mac and Chuzzle for mac are just some of the games that you could download for free at!

You Don't Like Me? No Problem!

My friend Ellen has a younger brother who transferred to our university last year. I know that it might be difficult for him to transfer and all because he might not have friends and all. So every time he joins his sister for lunch or when they meet up at the library I had always tried my best to be nice at him (smiling and all).

But what a huge slap it is to me when his sister told me that he didn't like me and all... I forgot what Ellen and I were talking about when she brought that topic up. Of course I was quite offended with the statement and I replied, "Good! I never liked him the first time I laid eyes on him too!"

I was so infuriated! Like from all of the good deeds I've done from lending him my clothes when he needed it and being nice (which I normally don't do to strangers) he has the guts to hate me? Yeah not liking someone is the same as hate as I realized that he didn't want to be around me whenever he and his sis meets up. Like whatever dude! I was not placed in this world to please you.

Just recently I came to his home because me and my friends slept over at Ellen's house and of course he would be there because he lived there. I did my best to ignore him and I did a great job too. Ellen told him that he and I should be friends now and guess what he said? "Edgar and I are already friends..." yeah right in your dreams! I wonder when we did become friends.

I gave him my hand of friendship and I gave effort to get to know him (from sending Friendster messages and accepting his request to burn him some songs) and he just pushed my hand away. It's his lost not mine. But why am I blabbering about him anyway?

Maybe it's to share to everyone that don't be affected if anyone rejects you whenever you extend your friendship. You're not the one with the issues, they are!

Value of LifeLock

What's in a name? Well just one's reputation, power, and social status! The name you carry is your unique identification because no two persons have exactly the same name! There would always be deviations in the spelling and pronunciation. But one thing is for sure, a tarnished name is hard to fix.

This is where the value of life lock comes in. Life Lock may just be the protection you need from identity theft! With several scammers and phishing sites we find on the internet it is no wonder if our identity is stolen and used for fraudulent acts. And who gets blamed? Us of course.

In my lifelock review I would say that life lock is a need for anyone who uses the internet because without it we are very vulnerable. Just in my e-mail alone I receive 3-5 spams a day saying that I have one 3 billion dollars or anything like that. I am quite disturbed because what if one day I get to accidentally get trapped in a phishing site and all my private credentials are stolen... that would really be bad. But with life lock I am guaranteed that that would never happen!

My Dad a True Filipino

Filipinos have been known for being resourceful and innovative. Since the Philippines is a third world country, Filipinos have limited resources in terms of money and raw materials, that is why Filipinos would have to make do with whatever they have to be able to create or use something.

My Dad is a true Filipino then if being resourceful is a common trait with Filipinos. But I guess my dad has gone overboard with being resourceful because he is being more of a trash collector than a resourceful person and I mean it! Our house is full of trash because of him and our house looks like a slum house!

Our house is small but it wouldn't look so cheap if my dad didn't think of hanging those heart-shaped Ferrero Rocher chocolates as decorations. He thinks that it's classy to display expensive food wrappers to "show off", he doesn't even realize that he's just making a fool of himself in the process.

And another thing, we have glasses that he stores that we haven't even used but he decided to re-use those coffee glass containers. He really is so infuriating! He also refuses to buy a water glass pitcher because he insists that this is a waste of money because we could just re-use those 2 Liter Coke bottles. It's as if we're going to use "your" money! You don't even have a freaking job so why on earth would you care if we buy what ever we want to buy! But that's not the point. The point is there are some things that shouldn't be re-used and should just be thrown. If you re-use those plastic bottles, you pose yourself for esophageal cancer because as time passes, plastic molecules are eroded and gets mixed in the water you drink and these molecules are carcinogens (caner causing substances).

Aah! I just hate it when he is so stubborn! What's the use of owning drinking glasses and other usable items when you insist of using trash! But I can't blame him for being like that for he did grow up from a poor family but how come my mom who also came from a poor family is able to have good taste? Answer? My mom is sophisticated and my dad is still socially incapable of adjusting to our lifestyle.


Before you think that Safariland is some outdoor park with wild animals and safari rides well you better think again. Safariland happens to be one of the best if not the best brands in holsters and accessories.

Safariland holsters happens to be the trusted brand of more than 70% of law enforcement officers in the United States alone so one would naturally agree that if the product has many patrons then it must be really good!

Safariland holsters are well designed that they can be well concealed and are used by the police and military personnel alike. is the place where you could buy Safariland products at discounted prices straight from the Safariland factory!

Invincible -Christian Bautista

Song lyrics | Invincible lyrics

Christian Bautista (nope we're not related ^_^) is known as Asia's Pop Idol and by watching the movie you already know why. This is just one of the songs that I love that Christian sang.

I just love the message that the song brings. The song tells of a person that is weak in almost every way but what makes that person strong is his/her indomitable spirit. The person has the strength to always stand up every time he/she falls. That is what makes a person "Invincible", his strong will to never give up and continue to go on.

This is such an inspirational song and I just get into that reflective mood every time I hear this song. So to everyone, we are invincible! We just have to believe that we are and we will be.

5.11 Tactical Pants!

Do you guys know what one thing cops need in order for them to get out of the house? PANTS! Well yeah I know everybody needs to have pants on to be seen in public but if you're a cop having 5.11 Tactical is simply a must!

The use of 5.11 Tactical by cops and other law enforcement officers have been for over 20 years now and this isn't a huge wonder since 5.11 Tactical are very durable (good for running while chasing the bad guys) and very convenient too as the 5.11 Tactical have lots of pockets to store cop stuff like handcuffs, police badge, and what have you.

So bad guys beware! Because the cops with 5.11 Tactical are here! They show off a good fashion statement and at the same time the 5.11 Tactical enhance the safety, speed, accuracy, and performance of these hard working law enforcers!

The Cawayanon & Mangima Adventure

My friends (Nanette, Nikki & her sis RV, Ellen, Irene) and I went to a little field trip, a sort of despedida party for me. We (Nannete, Irene, & I) went to my house first for a movie marathon (we watched PS I Love You and some naughty movies later if you know what I mean). We then headed to Cawayanon for some golf and lunch. We wanted to go horse back riding but we had no time since we had to go to Mangima for a swim. We stayed again for the night, this time at Ellen's house where Nikki & her sis and Nanette (who went back to Cagayan de Oro after lunch) followed us. We then headed to Mangima again the following day and went home later in the afternoon. We really had fun! Wished Jera and more of my friends were with us.

I really love swimming. I was so sleepy and tired but when I jumped in the pool all my fatigue disappeared. And the food was great! Being with my friends was sure fun. This is one of my most memorable experiences with them.

LA Police Gear Part 2

I have recently made a post about and I have told you how cool their wide array of Police gears are. Their products are very durable (because they're designed for combat and all) and the price is very reasonable too.

I was looking through their product list when I found this new product that they had in store: a Blackhawk Holster. So you might think that this is just an ordinary holster well you're wrong. It has a patented SERPA lock that allows fast and smooth drawing of the gun for fast shooting and all. With the patented Blackhawk Holster you are assured that you can have a quick response when bad guys are around.

Plus the design is very nice and as the lucky recent owners of a Blackhawk Holster has said and I quote, "This is the best of the paddle holsters out there." I have dreams of being a cop someday and I hope that I could wear one of those complete police gear. But if ever I'm a cop, I know where to shop!
