Moving On...

Super Excited ako...

Lilipat na kami sa isang house na 3 bedroom at 2 bathroom. Naghahanda na kasi kami para sa pag dating ng Piolo ko. Syempre medyo kelangan ng privacy weder you like it or not.. heheh

Aba ang aking tanging Ina Mas excited pa kesa akin. sabi konga sa kanya wag na nyang dalhin ang mga abubot nya at idonate nalang namin sa salvation army para nman mag mukhang disente ang bago naming titirhan.

At sabi korin na huwag pakekealaman ang aking bedroom dahil me sarili akong interior instinct.. heheh... dati pa plain white lang ang gusto ko sa room ko. Walang abubot na nakasabit. Ay meron pala ung napakalaking picture ko, gaya nung mga napapanood ko.. hehh pero nag bago ang isip ko..

Gusto ko ngayon Black, white at red combination... para nman profesional ang dating. Pipinturahan ko nga ng black ung computer table ko e para mag match..

yihiiiii.. super exciting ito.. sarap sanang mag shopping... kung madami akong kwarta.. keyalang puro kahon..

Sabi mo, sabi ko

Nung dati pa, mahilig akong makipag phone pal. Ung phone pal na kilala ko nman syempre. Mga klasmate na mahilig mang denggoy at kunwari diko kilala... dati pa un. sabi nila maganda daw ang boses ko sa phone.. parang angelic voice ganyan... dati un ah..

Pero ayon sa aking pananaw sa buhay kapag maganda daw ang boses sa phone o sa radio e panget ang mukha. Sa aking karanasan, totoo un. Kaya nga ayaw na ayaw kong matawag na maganda ang boses e! hhahaha!

Madalas i record ko ang boses ko sa tape, boses maton naman. Hindi nga ako makapaniwala na boses ko un. Feeling beautiful ako eno? eh sa tlga namang di ako nagagandahan sa boses ko pag narecord na e. Pero ibang usapan pag nakanta na... ibang level nman kasi un...

Nung makapag trabaho ako sa customer service ng isang bangko dito, madami ang nabighani sa aking gandang boses na taglay (pakapalan nato), hindi ung boses na flirty ah! Para lang daw kcing masaya ang boses ko at ang gaan gaan ng feeling.. bwahaha ano daw!

Infairness, hindi ko nman nilalandi ang mga customer kasi naka record ang mga bawal calls namin. At hindi nila kami nakikita sa customer service. Nakatago kami dun sa sulok.. hehe joke... Minsan mabubulagta nalang kami dahil me nagpapadala ng kung ano anong pagkain, syempre nga nman natulungan namin. Masarap lang ang feeling..

Ano bayan, napakwento tuloy ako.. ehehe

How to Come up With a Nickname

Ever heard of nicknames that seem like a million bucks? Well, read on!


  1. Reflect on why you want a nickname. Is it for parody reasons? Is it for personality reasons? Is it more for alias related reasons?
  2. Brainstorm. Think of any words or ideas for a nickname that you like.
  3. Use the Internet to find out anything you can about the name you are thinking about. Especially websites such as,, and
  4. Test out how it sounds. Listen to it said out loud, are you comfortable with having that as your new nickname? Can you really refer to yourself as that name? How are your friends and family reacting to it?
  5. Choosing an extra symbol might be right for you; a symbol, insignia, or logo to separate your name from others (ie. "ACE (@)").
  6. Think about your interests. What do I do frequently that makes me unique? Write these things down.
  7. Think about funny situations. Has anything ever happened to you that was major and made you laugh out loud?
  8. Think of what people say about you. Do they say you look like an Easter bunny? Perhaps you can call yourself "Happy Bunny". Do people say you walk like a model? Perhaps you can call yourself "K-Moss".
  9. Change other nicknames you've heard. You could take a common nickname and make it more unique. Perhaps "hotrod" could become "Hotrod Todd".
  10. Maybe add a "y" at the end or just shorten your name. Ex: "Linda" could become "Lindy", or "Hillary" could become "Hilly", (or simply drop the "y" and make it "Hill").


  • If you're afraid you're going to forget your real name, call yourself, for instance, "Don the great". Just make sure you put your name in it.
  • Don't live your life by your nickname. That can get annoying.


  • Don't go on about your nickname or people will think you are trying too hard, and that you don't like your real name!
  • It is probably much better, and easier, if others give you your nickname. Making up your own nickname could be perceived as conceited or dorky. Nicknames that you make up for yourself might not "stick" as well as names given to you by someone else.

How to Get Your Opinion Piece Published

Opinion authors may be regular general commentators or specialist commentators (for example, politics). To provide opinion pieces, you may be a regular contributor or provide a single or occasional comment on a story or topic of current interest because of your expertise and knowledge in the area. There are no prerequisites to becoming an opinion writer, except writing ability and passion for your subject matter. You can ‘pitch’ your piece to a publication or they may ‘commission’ or ask you to write on a topic. Some pieces are paid. Sometimes an editor will only run your piece on-line only. Take it, it’s a start.


  1. Make sure you can write well. This means being both technically proficient and having an engaging writing style. Alternatively, you can use a proofreader for the former and either a ghost writer or PR hack for the latter. Regardless, its always best to get someone else to read your article before submitting.
  2. Work on writing quickly and making your points in a lively and succinct manner.
  3. Find a niche topic and become an expert. It's easier than being a fantastic writer who can write across a variety of subjects and research skills.
  4. Pick a topic you are passionate about, something you know about well. Or find out what is of perennial interest and become an expert in that area.
  5. Become familiar with the publications you are targeting. Read it everyday for at least two weeks and become familiar with the paper’s ‘style’. Get a style guide if you can.
  6. Develop relationships with section editors by providing facts for them on your topic when asked, sending Christmas cards and being on time, helpful and friendly. Start by emailing them a short biography and identify yourself and your area for future work. When your topic comes up, hopefully they’ll call you first.
  7. Keep an eye on current events to be ready for your opportunity. You may only have a 48 hour window to write and submit your piece from when the story breaks.
  8. When the opportunity arrives, choose a unique or different angle for your piece to help it get a run; it’s time to juice those media relationships.
  9. Pitch your story to the opinion editor (whom you’ve been cultivating) first if you can and never send an unsolicited completed piece – unless you have lots of time on your hands and are happy to receive frequent rejections.
  10. Work with the editor when your pitch is accepted. Do this to meet word limits and deadlines and accept all feedback. Trust that they want you to produce the best article possible, one that will run in their publication.
  11. Make sure to provide controversy in your piece through an argument. Remember, this is your opinion and you should choose a side and make your point. It’s the opinion editor’s role to provide balance, not yours.
  12. Accept failures. If your pitch fails, it means you’re one step closer to success. Take heart in accelerating news cycles, you can be certain your topic will come around again soon. Don’t get discouraged, try widening your targeted publications or your speciality.
  13. Get blogging. In the meantime, start a blog for practice and send it to on-line opinion and other on-line news services.

How to Evangelize

Some people find it very hard to share their faith but you just have to have the courage to. Courage is not the absence of fear but it is doing what is right even when you are scared.


  1. Do not rush directly into the topic of witnessing when you are with someone. Ask them about what has been going on in their life lately. They will not tell you detailed information unless they trust you.
  2. Pay attention to what they say. If their life seems bad, try telling them, "Oh, yeah, my life was once bad, too..." and thell them that you found the solution. Once they ask you what it was, then jackpot! They are in the net already.
  3. Start telling them how God changed your life.
  4. Tell them that God can change their life, too, if they just ask.
  5. Do not force them into doing it. Tell them that it is their decision, not anyone else's. No one else can make it for them, not even God.
    • If they accept, lead them into the sinner's prayer.
    • If they do not accept, then just smile and change the subject.

Scrapping - Challenging

My very first scrap challenge. and guess what? syempre nanalo ako! yahoooo....

I've join to a couple of scrap challenges this week. And I'm really happy about the result.

Kahit bago palang ako sa larangang ito, naaapreciate tlga ng mga scrappers ang mga gawa ko.

My Journey

Most of you know that I just got my US Naturalization last year of October. And a week after, I filed for my husband petition. The processing is kind ‘a frustrating. And as Roanne says it’s really depressing.

Dapat laging girlscout. So much paper works. And most of the time, they will ask you to rely online. But I know in the end it will all paid-off.

It’s been over six months since I filed my husband papers and I think were almost there. Almost done. (syempre positive thinking) Abot kamay na ang pag-asa.

Reading the story of other people can be an inspiration and frustration too. Waiting is really depressing. Patience is a virtue in this Journey. And I really thank God that He never let me down. Sometimes I wanted to give up, but He’s always there to give me strength.

I’ll be sharing to you my journey next time…

How to Clean a CD Player

Cleaning a CD player is easy as long as you know what you're doing. You will need a cross-tip screwdriver, some 95% etahnol (found in pharmacies), WD40 or similar thin spray-grease, some cotton buds used for cleaning your ears


  1. Make sure there is no CD in the player. Disconnect the power cable. And I mean DISCONNECT! Don't just hit the power button or leave it on standby
  2. Remove the top cover by unscrewing the screws with the screwdriver. Once you did so, put the cover upside down and the screws inside it to keep them from losing
  3. Spray some WD40 on a cotton bud and grease the rails the laser slides onTo move the laser and grease the part of the rails under it, turn the biggest of the plastic cogwheels that move it. Do not use excessive force when doing this
  4. Take another cotton bud and dip in the ethanol
  5. Squeeze it between your fingers to remove excess ethanol. The bud must be damp, not dripping
  6. Clean the lens of the laser with the ethanol-damped cotton bud
  7. Wait for a while until the ethanol evaporates from the lens
  8. Put the cover back on and fasten the screws
  9. Turn on the player without putting a disc in it. If your player is a minisystem switch it to CD mode. You will hear a sliding sound - that's the laser returning to its proper position
  10. Put in a CD and enjoy

How to Have a Good Family Life

Are you someone who cares about his or her family but you're finding the family emotions a little overwhelming and you're not yet living a happy family life? Then here are some suggestions that may just help you.


  1. Respect your parents. Do this not just by giving them respect, but by listening to what they say and trying your best to make them happy. Realize that you may be able to choose your friends, but you're born to your family. If there's nothing you can do to please your parents, you'll be happier if you just accept it for now and focus on pleasing yourself. Making others happy is secondary to being happy yourself. And things do change over time.
  2. Realize that life is not always going to go smoothly. Try to face the "ups and downs" in your family life with positive thinking and a cool mind. But your family doesn't have the right to make you miserable just because they're family. Try to get along, but if it doesn't work, let it go.
  3. Try to compromise whenever and wherever it's possible. When you see that the people who you love most are happy, you will have a feeling of great happiness. You will have to compromise a lot in life; family is the first environment to begin learning this important skill, amongst people who know you best and can guide you with their reactions, thoughts and suggestions. Even the things they don't tell you become a learning experience.
  4. Give occasional gifts to your family members. Surprise gifts can be great because most people love them. The best gifts tend to be the ones you make yourself, or put a lot of thought into. Also appreciated are gifts of your time; doing tasks around the house that haven't been done for a while such as painting touch-ups, restoring missing door handles etc. and clearing away clutter.
  5. Be honest with your parents, but bear in mind that they don't always need to know everything. If you get along well, you can open up, but if you don't, avoiding tender subjects can keep the peace. Sometimes saying nothing can be better for a family relationship than saying everything. Family is forever. Why fight about the little things?
  6. Feel free to communicate with each and every person in your family. Listen to them when they want to say something; try to be with them when they need you. Bear in mind that the needs of your family don't outweigh your own. Give them your time and love, not your life.
  7. Dedicate a slot, it may be once a week or once a month in which you have a 'Family Time'. This could be anything,watching a movie together, playing a game, going out on a trip, but make sure it is something everyone will enjoy.
  8. Eat together. Modern-day life makes this virually impossible to do, however, it really does change your family life dramatically -- for the better.
  9. Make time for siblings. They know you best, and they will tell you the whole truth, even when you don't want to hear it.
  10. Accept that your relationship with your family depends on both you and them. If they can't meet you halfway, you will be happier if you don't spend all of your energy making all the effort.
  11. Good values help us choose between right and wrong, good and evil. They also affect how we will spend our time, energy, and money. If children are taught good values when they are young, they are more likely to make wise decisions when they are older.
  12. Home is the best place for children to learn values. Here are some basic values you may want to teach: Love, Honesty, Morality, Civility, Lifelong learning, Forgiveness and mercy, Thrift and industry, Gratitude, Optimism and Faith. Remember, the most effective method of teaching values is through example.
