I Got Approved!

Whohooo! I can't really believe it! I am VERY happy!!! I REALLY am!

This morning at work, as I was checking through my new emails, a particular email caught my eyes.. Guess from where it was.. It's from PayPerPost and it said that my blog has been approved! Isn't that great? LOL... Well it is for me!

I originally intended my blog to be something just personal. A place where I can write and express my thoughts and opinions about things and events that concerns or interests me. But I have been thinking too that maybe I can turn this thing into something and earn extra cash from it.

I've been seeing PayPerPost icons and sign-up forms on a lot of blogs I check and view, in every blog network I go to. I'm quite new to blogging and although the name already says what it is for, I still got curious so got myself check on PayPerPost's website, read and learned more about the opportunities it offers to bloggers like me.It definitely is something I've been looking for. So I signed up, crossed my fingers (lol), and hoped that my application gets approved..

Nnow that my blog has been approved, I get to earn extra money for things I want to buy while still doing what I like.

8 Random Things About Me

KCee tagged me with this cool meme.

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.

3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment on their blog and tell them they’ve been tagged, and to come back and read your blog for the whole story.

Here goes:

1. I took up BS Mathematics back in college, did not fail a single math class and finished the course in four years. What's odd about it is that Math is my waterloo.

2. I always prefer wearing flats. My legs hurt when I use high-heeled shoes or sandals.. I love flats, sneakers, and rubber shoes. They're more comfortable and makes me feel always on-the-go!

3. I went to a Catholic school back in high school and wanted to be a nun... until I fell in love.. LOL

4. I am the second and only girl in a family of four children.

5. I love Ketchup!

6. I am very family-oriented. Anything that concerns my family is of the highest priority to me. Bondings and occasions with them are very important.. I just can't miss them!

7. I don't like talking in front of a crowd.. Thinking about it makes me really nervous!

8. I like staying simple especially with the clothes I wear. It never goes out of fashion! ;o)

New 7 Wonders of the World

Last Night I saw on the news that the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park better known as the Underground River located in Palawan is one of the so-may beautiful worl spots running to be decalared as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The Philippines is undergoing through a lot of crisis. Hearing this on national television somehow makes a Filipino smile and feel proud about it (I myself am).

The Underground River in Palawan has already attracted so many tuorist around the globe and has helped promote our tourism. It's main attraction is, of course, the navigable underground river where you'll find stalactites and stalagmites and the limestone karst Mountain Landscape.

Another entry from our country is the Tubbataha Reef in Sulu Sea which has been previously declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This is famous not only for its large marine sanctuary but is also a popular site for sports divers.

Currently, the Underground River and the Tubbataha Reef ranks number 128 and number 8 respectively. We should, as Filipinos, be proud of this. Let's support our entries. Let's vote for them.

I Am Grateful

Princess Vien Tagged me with this..

1. I am grateful that I was given the chance to exist, live and love.

2. I am grateful for having a wonderful family.

3. I am grateful for every blessings and graces God has showered me and my family.

4. I am grateful for the friends and loved ones I have and who treasure and love me in return.

5. I am grateful that I have a nice job and that I am able to blog here.. LOL

*In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:

1. Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)

2. Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)

After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to take the challenge, please follow the appropriate link and do so: “Are You Grateful?“, “Complain Complain Complain.”

What Are the Colors of Your Heart?

Your Heart is Blue and Green

Your heart is open and dynamic.

You are flexible, optimistic, and expressive.

You bring honesty and intimacy to relationships.

You're good at expressing your needs to your partner.

What I do...

What do you do when you're tired or exhausted? When you feel like the world is against you? When you feel like things are not always working out right?

Well, me? I cry. I pray. I write.

I cry. I cry as much as I can. I cry until either I fall asleep or until my tears run dry. It's my way of releasing the pain, the sadness, the worries and doubts, all that is negative. Crying somehow makes me feel relaxed and calm.

I pray. After releasing all the tensions I feel, I pray. I talk to God . I lift up my problems, myself, and everything to Him. I talk to Him and it makes my heart so much lighter. Talking to God gives my soul the peace that I need. A sort of calmness, serenity only God can give. I pray and asks Him to walk with me, walk me to the light.

And then I write. I write to express how I feel... How I felt... I write so I can remember... So I will remember that once in my life I came across the same kind of situation and that I was able to overcome it... So I will remember that I should be a lot stronger..

These are what I do... How 'bout you? :)

My Brother's Graduation

April 16 is my brother's graduation. Finally, after four years in college, he is now graduating with the BS IT degree. Though part of the ordinary, average students, I could never be so proud of him. I know he strived hard to finish his studies.

I am writing this because I was touched about what he said to me.. I was not supposed to attend his graduation. I did not file a leave of absence and I've no plans of going home to the province for it. What made me re-consider? It's what he said. Well, he just said that his graduation will not be as meaningful as it could be if i were home with them.

Whoa! Was I dreaming or did I really hear him say that? Imagine someone who is not expressive at all about how he feels just said that?! OMG! LOL

No seriously, I was deeply touched. I never thought he ever appreciated my funding and support on his studies and me as his older sister. He told me that he would be happier I could attend his graduation rights.. Oh my! Who could resists..? Right then and there, I filled out an application form for a two days leave.. I'm crossing my fingers hoping it gets approved..

To my brother, Jay, Congratulations! Cheers!

The Love Personality Test

Take this test!
About 7% of the U.S. population shares the combination of traits that make up this love type.

Being an ISTJ means that you are one cool customer. Although few would describe you as being warm, cuddly, or sentimental, many people likely see you as an important source of support in their lives. That's because when things are chaotic or falling apart, you're the type of person who can be virtually unflappable. ISTJs like you are known for being talented problem solvers. When it comes to your relationships, you usually know how to speak up for yourself so that others know what you want. But that doesn't mean you're rigid or inflexible. In fact, you're quite willing to bend for the right person. They just need to make their case honestly.

For Renovation, Again...

I'm thinking about changing my blog's template, yes, again.. I've been having a hard time arranging my widgets with it. I have to adjust the width of each widget to fit into the space allotted for them on the right side of the page everytime a want to post one but not all widgets allows you to edit their width properties. Plus, some widgets don't look good when their too narrow..I really like this template but I would have to look for a new one since it makes blogging a little hard..So again, pls bear with me.. :)

My Morning Personlity

Take this test!
Sure, you've had your share of lazy Sundays, but for the most part, we'd guess you greet the day with enthusiasm and maybe even a smile. Morning people like you probably have your own internal alarm clocks, and it often makes morning the best part of the day.

Getting to work or appointments on time has probably never been a problem for you. In fact, you're usually at your most productive during the a.m. hours. So, if you've got a big presentation to give or a test to take, your best bet is to schedule it before lunchtime. Go get 'em!

Rice on the Rise

It has been a consistent part of the everyday news on TV, has been occupying newspapers' headlines and has become the number one topic on group conversations. Rice on the rise! Yes, that's right. Every Filipino's favorite part of the meal is becoming more popular because of it's decreasing supply and increasing price in the market.

According to news, the Department of Agriculture, together with other government agencies, have been discussing this issue thoroughly to come up with a resolution. They said they are allocating billions of Pesos for farmers, fertilizers, irrigation, and other agricultural infrastructures and facilities and are trying to find more ways to alleviate the damages that this has done to our country in general.

So why am I writing this?

Because like every ordinary Filipinos, I and my family are being affected. I have to work on my budget again because of the sudden and continuous increase in price, not only of rice, but also of other everyday commodities. Right now, I'm even thinking of resorting to cheaper rice substitution, like camote.. But then again, maybe not.. LOL

I hope the government finds a way to resolve this as soon as possible.. haaayyyy..

Hate That I Love You

I love this song... The lines are meaningful and so true.. :)

Friday, April 4, 2008


Ahhh... With the temperature rising and the sweat you feel all over you're body (even after bathing), there is no denying that it is indeed summer now...

I cant remember the last time I had a very exciting summer vacation. Though I have been looking forward to doing something every summer, I never had the time to realize them... Yes.. They're all ion my dreams and in my dreams alone...

I always don't have the time (initiative, others tell me..LOL) and enough resources to spend a luxurious, or at least, a nice summer stuff with my family or friends somewhere I want. In college, there was always something that I had to do even after the school year ends. And it's even worse now that I'm working. Everybody in the office seems to be so excited about going to beaches and somewhere else (where the temperature is cooler) that they have already filed days of leave ahead of time, which means, the leave calendar is already full, AND which also means I can't file a leave for myself anymore... What a sad thing!

Anyways, I'm still dreaming of spending a week or two (which by the way is not possible since we are only allowed to have a 5-day straight scheduled absence) in a beach with my family or friends. I Want it to be where they offer white sand beaches, crystal clear ocean water, nice food and fun activities you can do all day and night or until you run out of energy.

I hope this comes true before summer ends. Besides, it's not as if I'm asking for a very extravagant vacation. Just a simple, relaxing summer stuff is what I want. 'Hope somebody out there listens...or should I say, reads this...LOL

Phone Call

You called... Days after we decided to start clean and all over again, you called and asked me, "What happened to us?"... I did not answer for a few moments, I was thinking, I didn't know what to say...

You said, "I still love you..", I did not answer back, I was thinking, I didn't know what to say...

You said, " I will always be here for you..", you sounded like you were crying, I still did not answer back, I was thinking, I still didn't know what to say...

The line got cut off and there was a long moment of silence and I just realized, tears were rolling down my cheeks.

Months ago, I told you ( and myself, too) that I'm going to give myself whole heartedly to this commitment... No reservations... And you said the same thing. All the while, I have tried to be as strong as I can. I became so many things I was not before. I was very patient in all the ways I could think of. I became so understanding to the point I could not understand myself anymore. I learned to prioritize and sacrifice things for our sakes. I loved as if I will never love again... And I was happy... Until one day, I woke up and realized things weren't really working right. Beside the fact that we were on a long-distance relationship, you never really had time for me, or so I think (just like what you always tell me)... I tried to tell you about this, I wanted to be honest with you, the way I have always been all along, and express how I really felt about it. But you said I was becoming unreasonable. That I've become a fault-finder, making big issues out of small things. You even said I was becoming more demanding and hard to deal with each day... And I was hurt... Badly...

So that was how it went... We talked and decided maybe we need a time-out... More space between us... Deep inside, I was thinking, "Hell, how much more space do you need?", but there was no use saying that anymore since we have already agreed to 'go on separate ways'...

The phone rang again after a few minutes. Your name was on the screen. I answered it. You were crying while you were saying, "Nothing's changed... Nothing's changed, right? I still love you the way I have before...", and then you paused... I was silent and waiting on what you're going to say next.., I heard you taking in deep breaths and then you asked me. "Don't you love me anymore?"... I was thinking and then I finally said, "I don't know..." You were silent for a long time. Though you were trying to hide and deny it, I knew you were crying, I can hear it from the other line...

And then I spoke my mind. I tried to use the simplest and most subtle words to tell you how I really feel, because, as always, I don't want you to get hurt.

I don't know how I feel about you anymore. I was hurt but I don't blame you for that. You taught me so many things I've never known before, things I never learned from school or anywhere else, things that only real experience could teach. And for that, I thank you.

Maybe I was too idealistic. I had my fair share of mistakes too, I admit. If I am not as expressive as I was before, that's because of you.

You once told me, "There's nothing wrong with being honest and, with speaking your thoughts, but there are times, you have keep things to yourself so as not to hurt other people's feelings," and maybe that was what I felt those times. I was holding words to myself. I was afraid I might say something you will not like that might hurt you... And that would hurt me in return...

I am a little stiff now and that's because of you...

I learned that if you don't want to get too hurt, you have to learn to control your feelings even if that means not giving yourself whole-heartedly to something... Or someone...

You taught me not to expect anything from a relationship, from people around me.. ("Is this right?", I still ask myself.)

I was not scared to go through anything for this relationship, but now I am... And that, you taught me, too.

Either good or bad, you taught me so many things I could not enumerate in here anymore, and for whatever they may be, I thank you...

You were silent for a long time... I still wanted to say more... But I couldn't.. I felt like if I say another word, I could not contain the sadness anymore and I might burst into tears, into a loud cry. And then, I heard you try to explain your side but maybe I was too tired and have had enough to digest more of your explanations... I was crying, though i hate to, I knew I was crying...

And then, again, the call got disconnected...

What Kind of Sexy Are You?

Take this test!
You're not overt about your sexuality, but you're not purposely hiding it either — two traits that naturally draw people to you. You possess an understated zest for life, and a way of approaching the day with a can-do attitude that draws people to you. As a teenager, were you maybe a little on the quiet side? Even if you weren't, it's clear that underneath your occasionally understated statements, you have an undeniable sweetness that attracts people who see that special something burning from within.

Is it the way you carry yourself? That quiet sparkle in your eye? Those who know you intimately can't wait to uncover your sweetness. What's hiding behind that innocent smile? A little devil perhaps? A tattoo in a seductive spot saved only for your lover? Possibly, but you're so good, you'll never tell. Or will you?

Hanging on

"Dont let go too soon, but dont hang on too long."

This is an aphorism I got from one of my favorite books written by Mitch Albom entitled Tuesdays with Morrie. It is a line of realization of a dying old man, Morrie. One of these days, I'll write something about that wonderful and touching book, but right now, I want to focus on this simple line.

This line applies to so may thing in life, love and relationships we deal with everyday. But what does it really mean? When is too soon? When is too long?
These are the same questions I asked myself after reading that line.. Do we get to know it when it's just too soon to let go, could be of a realtionship or an expextation or something else? Do we get any clue when it's just too long to wait and hold on or expect? For me, too soon is when you never give something a second chance to work and too long is when you give too many chances to it that doing so becomes non-sense and rationally unreasonable. Too long is when waiting, expecting and hanging on becomes a waste of time and effort...
