How About You?

What is the most precious possession you have?

Some people may say, their house ....
Some say, their car ...
some say, their education ...
Money, computer, cell phone and the list goes on and on

Yes all those are essential, all are precious and important. But those stated above or what you have in your mind may be useless without LIFE. Therefore, our most precious possession is our life. We may have all those things but if we do not have life we cannot enjoy using or possessing it. This can make us realized of how precious our life is. Even when our life is in danger, the common sense will tell us is to protect it or life preservation. Even the laws gives excuse or mitigates punishment when our action calls for protection of one's life.

Let us thank god for that. For blessing us life no matter what hardship we encounter.

Did it Happen to you? Please Help

I used to grab some opportunities from payingpost.com or http://www.blogadvertisingstore.com/ . According to their terms and condition that they will only pay the opportunities you grab upon reaching the threshold of $100. I already reached the threshold last April 2010 but until now they have not paid me. I already sent several tickets for them to sent the money I earned through paypal but to no avail. Worse, their administration never replied. Are you a member of payingpost? Did they pay you? If yes, please help me.

Ofcourse, paying post is very different from payperpost because payperpost is really paying after 30 days from the date of posting.

I am posting this because I would like to let other blogger know what payingpost is doing. I have the right to collect the fee. I earned it, I authored the post requested, I faithfully followed their requirements. I hope they will realized and eventually pay the money I earned.

A Week Off

Last week, we went to Davao to take the time off, since my daughter's school celebrated the homecoming of its jubilarians and a week of sport fest.She had a week off from school. So we decided to spent the week off to Davao, the city of Durian. 

Actually, we were hitting 3 birds with a single stone. Why? Well, (1) we were able to visit my sister who is residing in Davao and had a lot of fun playing with my nephew; (2) my husband needs electrical materials which were not available in our place and so he decided to purchased it in Davao; and  (3) staying away from the busy days of work and spent quality family time together. 

So you see? It was not a purely vacation moment. Part of our time were spent to look for the materials need to be purchased.

Gonna blog hop! Good day everyone!

Remember?





Last February, I posted New Member. The new members were Duke and Wooch. 


When I was in Manila, my brother texted me. He told me that Wooch passed away because Wooch was bitten by a cobra. I was really crying when I learned what Wooch did. My brother told me that while he was watering the vegetables at the farmWooch was behind him, following him wherever he goes. Later he heard Wooch barking but he just continued walking and watering, then Wooch stopped barking and my brother sensed something was wrong. When he turned around, he saw Wooch lying helplessly, he immediately grab Wooch but a cobra already struck Wooch. My brother ran and apply some medication to counter the venom but it was useless . The cobra's venom was so strong. If it was not for Wooch, my brother would have been bitten by that cobra instead. You see he protected my brother. Wooch risked his life just to be loyal to my brother. So you see how sad it is. That is why I really love dogs. They are so loyal. Truly a man's bestfriend!

To prevent such incident from happening again, we decided to cut all the grasses around. Now my brother regularly trim all the grasses to drive away the snakes.

Finding

I have been browsing and reading blogs to get some tips as to how to lose weight. I really need to lose because I know being fat or obese is not healthy. A lot of diseases are attached to obesity such as heart ailment and hypertension.

I have already read a few but the usual and best advice are still (1) To eat right kind and right amount of food and (2) Exercise. 

So I would really need to find time to exercise to bring back my 36-27-36 size or just even close to that size. I hope I can really reduce my weight without taking those reducing pills or even undergoing surgery. I need to set my goals tomorrow and should really work hard. Whew! I hope and I believe I can!

The Place I've Stayed

When I was away from home, I have stayed and lived in the 29th floor in one of the condominiums in Rockwell. It was a very nice and safe place to stay. There are a lot of estate police who are ready to be of assistance especially in crossing the street. I can say that it was a good place to stay but it was not the best because my family was not with me.


A lot of foreigners are also staying in Rockwell. I guess it is due to the comfort and safety why a lot of foreigners are staying there.

Take a glimpse at the room I have stayed.






As I was jokingly told my husband, it was a very nice prison for me. I was trapped in it for 6 months. I never had a chance to really enjoy the place because I was so focused in my studies. All I did was just to look out to see the formation of clouds when my head was not that cooperative anymore. And sad to say, I was not able to take a splash in the pool! :-(


I wish we could own of the units, alas, it was so expensive!

Love they say covers a multitude of sin. Others say that even water can never extinguished love. Still other say "Love is Blind". Do you believe in the latter quote? I don't. I believe that love is not blind, lovers instead are blind. Do you agree?

Love also plays a major role in marriage. It keeps the marriage going and keep the couple happy and contented. I believe love is always necessary yet complicated.

As I browse my facebook, a friend of mine share the story below I hope you will enjoy reading it the way I do. Lessons can also be learned in the foregoing. Enjoy!


DID I MARRY THE RIGHT PERSON?

During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?"
I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?"
In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"

Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.

Here's the answer.
EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse/partner. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies (unconventional behavior/habit) .

Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience.
You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love... Because it's happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that __expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria (excitement) of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?"
And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else.
This is when marriages or relationship breakdown. People blame their spouse/partner for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage/relationsh ip for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious.
But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, excessive TV, or abusive substances.

But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it.
I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else.
You could.

And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this):

THE KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN MARRIAGE/RELATIONSH IP IS NOT FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON; IT'S LEARNING TO LOVE THE PERSON YOU FOUND.

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the __expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage/relationsh ip work. Sure true love can only happen after you've fallen out of love. When you begin choosing to love, even if you don't feel like doing it ---- that's true love. And that's the foundation of a lasting and strong marriage.


Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.

Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships.
Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger.
It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable. .. you can "make"love.

Love is indeed a "decision".. . Not just a feeling. You'll not just go away with your relationship just because the feeling is gone. In the Bible, love is a command. You make it happen.

Remember this always:

"God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go."
FW: Ruth Beltran

"Marriage is more than saying I Do. Marriage, like a precious plant, needs constant tending for it to grow, flourish, and bear fruti to last a lifetime, and beyond."
-David and Evelyn Feliciano

The Bar

The bar was an experience that I will never want to repeat. Life was so boring yet so busy. Reading at least 10 to 12 hours a day and just have to sleep at least 3 to 4 hours a day. But those hours of reading were not enough to cover all the 8 subjects. The time spent was so lacking. I was really trying to catch up with my readings but to no avail until September came. The fearsome 4 Sundays of September.

The First Sunday was so tough and I tell you as Sundays goes by, it gets tougher! I guess it was really unforgettable. The First Sunday, when I went to La Salle University in Taft Avenue, I barely slept for 1 hour, I think. Then The unexpected questions . . . it was so hard. The hardest exam I ever took. Then came the last Sunday. The questions were still very hard! And as we were lining up to go out, came a blast. We thought it was just fire crackers but it was a bomb. Two law students lost their legs.

You see my 6 months was so undescribable and so agonizing. What adds to my agony is the result of the exam. I believe it will be released next year sometime in March or April 2011. I just hope I was able to make it. So that I would not have to repeat the same experience again.

Hello I am Back

We had a 3 day vacation after I graduated from law school. Yes you read it right, I finally finished my 4 year course in LLB. Law school days are over but it was not the end, since the greater pressure and test will be coming, comes September 2010 - the BAR Examination.

We had a family bonding and at the same time unwinding ourselves from the hectic and busy schedules. We did take a short break just before going to my review classes in Manila. Alas! How time flies so fast. March is about to end and my things are not yet fully settled. Gosh! I have to pack my things and my books.

Gold

Gold - one of the most common yet precious metals on earth. Its chemical symbol is Au, which means aurum in Latin or shining dawn, in the periodic table of elements. A lot of people want to own gold. Why? Because gold are widely use such as in coinage, jewelry or arts. Gold do not have salvage value, its prices kept on increasing, thus, a good form of business. Moreover, it does give financial security because around the world people readily accept it or exchange gold for money. That is why, many engage in gold mining due to the demand of gold worldwide. Further, a lot of people presently engage in gold buying and selling. So, if you are interested to buy gold, you may do so online. You can find a lot of sites offering such services.

After the Buzy weeks

Hello World! Its summer time in the Philippines. We usually have 37.9 degree Celsius temperature. It is very humid ; plus the drought plus the series of blackouts plus the shortage of water! As what I told a blogger friend, we are experiencing global warming! But it isn't that bad, we Filipinos usually find ways to lessen the problems in our own special way. Mga Pinoys agree ba kayo sa akin?

Anyway, it has been two long weeks since I hopped and update my blog. I was so busy. My daughter graduated in the pre-school last 13 March 2010.


So we decided to give her a kiddie party. Since she really loves to swim, we chose to held it at a hotel poolside. So I was so busy preparing for the party, such as making reservation, prizes for the parlor games and some giveaways for the children who attended.

Then, my final examination began. So my last two weeks was so toxic and hectic. Whew! I am so thankful that it was finally over.

My 4 years in the law school just ended. However, the penitence will be starting soon. My classmates and I are preparing for a more hectic and pressured life - that is, preparing for the bar examination. I hope I could make it. But one thing I am sure of, I will be inactive in the blog world for 6 months, I think.
Although, I could visit my blog from time to time just to maintain my sanity. Just to let go of the pressure.

This coming April will be the start of the review classes. What adds to my dilemma is, I will be away from my hubby and my daughter during the duration of my review, since I will be staying in Manila, about 1 hour and 45 minute away via plane from the place where we are staying. I really hope I could stand up to the pressure and loneliness especially when I will be homesick, missing my family.

Its Harvest Time

Harvest time! Not in farmville - I do not play games in Facebook because I do not want to be an addict of such games, otherwise I will miss a lot of readings to which I could not afford due to time constraint. Anyway, we harvested the green grapes in the farm since the red ones are not yet ripe. We placed it inside a clear plastic bag. We had a great time with some friends with us. Take a look!

Headaches Due To Eye Problem

My husband used to complain about headaches. I was wondering what could be the cause of such pain. So I always asked him to take some medicines to ease up his pain. When his headache persisted, we went to a doctor and the doctor told him to consult an ophthalmologist. When we visited one of the diplomate doctors for the eyes in our place, he found out that my husband is near sighted. He recommended eyes glasses for my husband. So he started to measure my husband's vision to know the proper lens that fits his vision. My husband also chose the frames for his glasses that fit his face and taste. Further, his doctor suggested for a lens transition. Transitional lenses refer to those eye glasses which change its color when directed or get contact with the sun's reflection. The eye glasses turns darker and function as sunglasses but when there is no sunlight or inside a room the lenses will be clear again. However, the price is a little expensive. Anyway, my husband decided to purchase the transitional lenses because he will no longer need to buy another pair of sunglasses. So I said, the price is already reasonable. After a week, his eye glasses arrived. He enjoys his glasses and the headache - gone!

Lazy me

I was so lazy to update my blog last Sunday . . . I did not even hop! Well, I guess I was so engrossed and worried with our presentation in school. At last we already did all the things needed to be done. So Gonna hop now!

Our Day

Last February 21, 2010 was our 7th year anniversary. We just had a simple gathering invited family and close friends at home. I do not have any gift (me bad!) Actually, I ordered something online, unfortunately, did not arrive yet, so, I am still waiting. However, my hubby gave me a bouquet of roses! I was so happy! The roses are so gorgeous! I know you would agree with me.

New Space on the Web

My friend wanted to have additional web spaces. He wanted to create his own web. So I told him to look for some web hosting services. Anyway, he is a computer geek so he knows what to do.

Anyway, a lot of people get into web hosting to have better domain and better connectivity to the net. Also a lot of web hosting provider available in the world wide web. They are providing simple information and tips as to which web hosting proffer reliable and quality service. Some are expensive, some are cheap and some are for free. Each type has its own unique features. Some web hosting are for personal hosting and some are business hosting. Though those web hosting differs in character but both function the same, that is, to provide or to keep various web page available in the net. And most especially, offer good services to interested individual, for them to choose which among the web hosting provider fits their standard and needs.

Most people, though computer literate but could hardly understand what a web hosting is. Actually, web hosting are those providers which provide internet connectivity in a data center so that their users can readily upload files in their web page.

New Member

We have 2 new members of the family, namely Duke and Wooch! They are so adorable! My brother is taking care of those two. We had a great time last Saturday. We were playing with them and my daughter really likes those two pup.

Ranger had not seen them yet since those two are staying in the farm. I hope my Ranger will not get jealous.

s!

New Bed and Thinking

We have a new bed, a king size bed! Well, I think it just fit us! My husband used to sleep on the floor because he cannot sleep well due to our daughter's movement while asleep, she is moving 360 degrees. That is why we decided to purchase a new bed. At first, I thought a Queen Size will do but since the price of the king size bed is reasonable, we decided to get it. Now my daughter can move freely without having her foot hitting our faces! However, I am planning to pair it with a side table but I am still looking for the right one. I also wanted to purchase new furniture for our new home at the farm. I am still looking for discount furniture yet striking. I am thinking of having a comfortable sofa, dividers and closet to fit in. I am thinking of having Philippine Native look set up to match up our bamboo walls. I hope I can find some good stuff. As for me, I usually look for a quality made and attractive furniture yet not expensive. I like to add or mix some furniture to add accent in the interior. I just hope I could choose it right.

Nail Art

When I went to the parlor to have my nails done, my daughter accompany me and she also requested to have her nails done (but she is only 6 years old!) To end up the discussion, I decided to give her nail a new look. I allowed her to choose which design she liked. Since her favorite color is blue, look at what she chose :



She is happy with her nail art!
