A Special Thanks to Filipinoblogger.com

A couple of days ago I was ecstatic to see my blog post accidentally on FilipinoBloggers.com. I am happy that they have acknowledged my recent post and include it on their list. I find it pretty cool that they recognize posts that are relevant to their theme and I am happy to see my blog with other Filipino bloggers as well. I am unsure how my site got included since I did not make any entry, neither submit any of my previous post to them nor have registered to that site. But I certainly find it cool and I am so happy to see my blog on their site.

Filipino Bloggers by the way is a site where you can submit The Best Blog Posts.

Thanks again FilipinoBlogger!

I Wish My Wish Will Come Into Reality

"Dreams do come true, if we only wish hard enough, You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it." ~ James M. Barrie

Believers would say, anything is possible and there is no such thing as limits. I certainly believe that we are capable of achieving all the things we want in life, if we can only perceiver and work harder ~ we can absolutely reach our dreams and ambitions. But things can't be perfect all the time and that we can be defeated by our own fear, capacity and fate.

As a child I am fond of wishing all the best things in life. Even though I am old enough  for wishing tremendous stuff that are impossible to attain still, I keep my faith intact and hoping it will happen someday. Wishes might not come into reality but still, wishing gives me hope and dreaming enlighten my soul believing there will always be a wonderful tomorrow.

My grandest wish is mainly about our country's total growth and development. Hoping for one day Philippines will not be a 3rd world country anymore and that we will rise from poverty and corruption. Seeing there will be nomads in the streets of Manila and hungry child on every sidewalks are the most wonderful thing that I could ever imagine. I truly believe that we need the best national and local officials to achieve this goal and I wish for us to have a great leader to rule our country and lead us to a better nation.

As for my personal wish, I am praying that I could finalize our house reconstruction and hope it will be finished this year or before March of next year. Our house got flooded last year and most of our belongings particularly on the first floor sank and traces of Ondoy (typhoon) still remain on our humble abode. We practically renovate our house and bought some appliances but still, parts of our house such as our kitchen floor tile needs to be reconstructed. But I am happy that it doesn't look awful as it was before on that devastating day. 

I also wish that I can continuously support my family in anytime of day. Having stable finances is not an easy task and I am praying that more blessings will come our way.

Okay, I got so excited with this "wishing" thing that I wanted to achieve things that I know is attainable and possible to happen in the future. With that, I want to wish little things that will definitely make me so happy as well.

There are things in life that I wish I have or do but due to my offline work and other priorities in life I left it all behind me. I love to draw but I recently got hooked with online sketching and paint. I wish I could take up a coarse that will enhance my artistic side on this category. LOL! Although I admit it is hard to draw using my computer mouse, I know one day I will have the tool and resources to cultivate this hobby of mine. Below is my 5-minute drawing via Paint particularly made for my wish entry.

When I was 9 I told my mom that I wanna be a designer, because she used to be a sewer and seeing different catalogs of clothes gave me an idea to become a stylist or designer someday. It is funny to think that I still wish to become one and that is why I love making collages online and it became a hobby of mine. I wish I could design my own clothing line in the future or anything that is related to fashion or clothes. Below is my polyvore collage.

I may sound silly but I wish to become a professional blogger. haha! yeah! I mean, I started blogging a couple of months ago and I still consider myself as a wanna be blogger and needs to learn a lot of things both in professional writing and blogging. I have found great Filipino writers and bloggers on the net wishing I could learn tips from them. Author behind Macuha (guerrilla blogging) , Yugatech and Bloggingfromhome/DigitalFilipino (Janet Torral) are the people I admire the most. 

Wishing is so addicting! I have a handful of wish that I want to include but more than anything for myself I want to wish more for people who needed great help in every aspect of life.I honestly hate dramas and all but, as a human being and as a Filipino I can't wish anything more than for our country's progress. I wish there will be no poor people (severely poor not to have a decent meal a day), I wish our public hospital will provide more service to the poor, it is hard to see people not getting proper medical attention because of not having enough money. I wish there will be no war in Mindanao and I wish there is still hope.

I wish...... my wish will come into reality.

I Can't Have Sodas Anymore

I remember last January of this year I promised myself to lose some weight and start a healthy lifestyle. Time passed by so quickly and I am slowly losing my goal instead, I am gaining more weight which is ridiculously insane. 

I am addicted to sodas, colas, pop, soft drinks ~ whatever you call it. There is something about CO2, caffeine and sugar that keeps me loving sodas which is totally crazy and obviously bad for my health.  More worse, I have tried replacing it with diet sodas (from regular) which in not the best idea in the first place. I craved more  and I somehow choose it instead of plain water.

Aside from the fact that I am gaining weight from it, I am in a way spending my money to things that will not do anything good to improve my health. After reading Ten Reasons to Quit Soda Pop I have finally come to realized how important it is to know the consequences of consuming sodas, that will later on can cause unwanted health issues.

I was desiring to improve my weight and all, but I guess behind achieving a sexy figure, a healthy body is far more important than anything else. So I guess I can't have sodas anymore.

Happy Mother's Day Sis!

Today is 9th of May and I want to take this opportunity to greet all the mommies out there a "Happy Mother's Day".  I lost mom when I was 11 years old and since then my older sister took care of me and somehow take full responsibility of what my mom has left us. Shes 8 years older than me and she basically gave up almost everything for our family and of course, me. I love her so dearly and words are not enough but I hope in my little way I am able to express how important she is in my life and in our family.

Shes now a mother of my two year old beautiful niece and I am so happy to see her loving  her life now more than ever. 

Sis, you inspire me to be good in everything that I do and I am your number 1 fan. 

Happy Mother's Day Sis!  Love Yah!

Globe Internet Broadband: Globe Tattoo, Wimax, Basic Plans

I've been experiencing total internet speed dilemma this week and thinking of changing my current internet provider. Searching for a more reliable, affordable and high-speed internet service is not that easy. I have come across with several information about our local broadband internet services and analyzing what's suited me best both my internet usage and budget is not an easy task.

I'm currently using Globe Tattoo Broadband for almost two years now. I find the service good but due to some issues with regards to internet speed I am thinking of trying other top broadband service that our country is offering. Besides, I am using a prepaid service kit from Tattoo which is obviously not a good choice for an internet addict like me. Although prepaid service is in a way great for you can control your internet usage but, compare it to other monthly broadband plans such as unlimited surfing, prepaid is obviously not a smart choice.

Currently, Globe Broadband Tattoo Kit  for prepaid is Php 895 which comes with a usb modem and prepaid sim. The normal rate for 15 minutes of internet usage costs 10 pesos. But if you are smart, you should try to subscribe for unlimited surfing which only costs 50 pesos for 1-day unlimited internet or 220 pesos for 5-days. Registration is done thru text;

SuperSurf50 : Text SUPERSURF50 and send to 8888

SuperSurf220 : Text SUPERSURF220  and send to 8888

I'm wondering if  WiMAX Plan from this same internet company is really good and has more stable  connection for it promises high-speed wireless broadband for as low as Php 745 per month and that is unlimited usage.

On the other hand, Globe Telecom's Basic Internet Plans ranges from Php 795 to Php 995 depending on the speed is a good pick. Which for me is a great option for the type of speed you want to have and at the same time it is not too expensive compare for a minute basis charge. Basic plan rate and speed are as follows;

Monthly Fee:  Php 795        Speed:   512 kbps
                        Php 995                          1 mbps

I am still observing which is the best internet provider that suit my surfing needs and budget. I, myself really like Globe Tattoo but I am in search for the best one and I am hoping to find it soon.

Copyright Issues: Protect Your Site

It has been a habit of mine to religiously check my blog if there has been some issues of copyright or plagiarism. I had been into a situation where my original post regarding American Idol season 9 was copied word per word to another site. I have been a fan of AI for along time and it has been one of my favorite topic on my personal blog. As soon as I had found out that my article was copied, I got mad and irritated by the whole situation. I planned to write that ridiculous blog a letter regarding the matter but due to some circumstances at work I've decided to do it the next day. 

Then, I searched it again and saw that it wasn't on his blog anymore and when I checked it on Copyscape, although it showed the link where my particular post was copied it stated that the page seems to have recently removed my content. I was relieved with the thought that my work was in a way returned to its original owner (me) but still, the intention was completely wrong and unethical.

Another issue that I have today had something to do with originality and in a way, getting your resources and someone smart is re-writing it. I know for a fact that it is impossible to have extra-unique post that doesn't resemble any other's blog or site. But the thing was, on main site I have this tool where I could track visitors whom a member of the blog sponsorship that I am with. In short, I could visit that particular blogger who visited my site. I am not being so observant or anything but, I was just blown away with his current post which was exactly the same topic that I have on my main blog. I mean, he basically get some of my words and post it instantly on his blog. On that matter, I can certainly let it go since it is just a petty thing but I don't know what else to expect on days to come.

I think everyone has the right to protect their own work and with that, I make sure to check my site on a daily basis. It has nothing to do on how good you are as a blogger or what not. I don't even consider myself as an ultimate blogger since I have other things to fulfill which is basically more of an offline task but, I stand with the idea of claiming what you know is yours, protecting your content or work especially here online is highly advised.

Playing Online Casino

It was just a year ago when my family and I went to Casino Filipino in Tagaytay City, Philippines. We all  enjoyed visiting the place and I wish we could do it again this year. I, personally enjoyed playing different online games be it a simple facebook application such as mafia wars or cafe world, psp games such as God of War or even online betting game which can be found anywhere on the net, you can definitely find me going gaga about it. But I have recently got intrigued  with online casino and want to try it out as well.

I have stumbled to different online casino game and evidently there are different site that offer this type of service. But it is best to learn first which ones are legit and honest. Knowing the best online casino is important as well as getting some valid information and honest opinion about it. It is better to be well-equipped with some online casino tips and advice from the expert.

I guess once I have gathered the best casino game to play, I might try my luck into it. I would love to try video poker and slots which are few of the games I played last year in Casino Filipino.
