My New Year Greetings To All

Glitter Words

I know it's not quite New Year yet but I just want to greet everyone who happens to drop by my site.

This year, 2008, was not an easy year for me. In fact, I had a lot of struggles that I thought I would've never survived. But I stood strong, and even if I wanted to give up most of the time, I never did 'cos deep inside me, I know that I can make it 'cos I have Faith in God, all the time. And despite of all those struggles, I had lot of things to celebrate about. Just like being married to a guy that I have been waiting for all my life. And not just that, I always thank that I still have my life and will continue to cherish every moment while I am alive.

One thing that always keeps me going, despite of the hardships I've been to, is I know that lots of people out there had much more worries than what I had, but they are still surviving and continue to live and enjoy life as much as they can 'cos life is precious and we can only grasp it ONCE.

A lot of sorrows yet a lot of happiness, that's always what we have each year 'cos that is what life is all about. And my wish for all of us for this coming year, 2009 are.....
♥ A blessed life;
♥ Being healthy physically, emotionally, mentally, and most importantly, spiritually;
♥ To be safe all the time;
♥ A fortune, enough to let us enjoy the fine things in life but would still remember that life is not just all about that;
♥ To receive a lot of Love and to give a lot of Love back; and
♥ To keep the faith in our God 'cos whatever we have right now are all His will and He won't give us anything that we would never survive.

May everyone will have a prosperous 2009!!!! :-)

Spy your phone

If you want to know everything's going on through your phone, you can now do it with the special telephone, Phone-007 that has a built-in spy bug. You can record any phone calls anytime or any room conversations and listen to them anytime and anywhere. It has a secret recording button that can be use to record a phone call and there's a secret microphone to record the room conversations.

Each time the Phone-007 recording feature is on, you will receive a text message, email, or phone call to let you know that someone is currently using your phone or having a conversation in the room where the phone is and it is being recorded automatically. You can then eavesdrop on the conversation that is taking place by calling a Phone-007 access number or you can retrieve the recorded conversations anytime you want by going to Phone-007 website or on your own Phone-007 phone.

Is that cool? But hey! I'm not yet done. You can also use the Phone-007 in the US, Canada, Mexico, Western Europe, and most part of Asia in a low flat monthly rate fee. Now, that is cool!

Planning a business

I am planning to start a business anytime from now. I've always been interested on eBay selling business, but I just don't know where to start yet. Until yesterday, I saw my Victoria Secret bra that I bought for my wedding dress and didn't end up using, then I decided to sell it on eBay for $50.00 'cos I bought it for $82.00. But it will be FREE shipping. I just posted it yesterday and no one had placed bid on it yet, so I don't know how it will turn out. I hope someone will buy it though.

Anyway, since I started selling on eBay, I was thinking of pursuing it and sell more. Actually, I already bought some nice long-sleeve tops online that I'll be selling on eBay or hopefully with my own website. Slowly but surely, I'd like to build an online store and buy apparel in a very affordable price. Once, I'll get the tops that I bought online, I will post it here for y'all to see. But I need to make sure first that it has a good quality too 'cos it is always the most important thing about selling something, having a good quality product. And having a worthy price is a plus.

My Last Minute Shopping

Time is flying really fast. The year is about to end and so as the Holiday. I felt bad for not being able to send the gifts to my family in the Philippines yet because I wasn't able to get the gift that my Mom likes. But I just did my last minute shopping a few minutes ago. Thanks to the last minute gifts from Kmart, I found Accessories New Look Organizer Tote Handbag that my Mom will surely love.

Kmart is really great for always providing the best deals with their low prices and great quality products. All the other online store doesn't have much great things for gifts left now, but Kmart is something you can count on for last minute gifts. They still have wonderful things that is perfect for a gift this holiday. Now that the holiday is about to end, do your last minute shopping at Kmart before it's too late.

As for me, I am just waiting for the order to be shipped and my gifts to my loved ones will be ready to go all the way to the Philippines. I am sure they are all excited about it, and I am excited to give it to them too. But I still wish I can pack myself and send to the Philippines though because I miss my parents so much. But there is nothing I can do about that right now. I hope that somehow, with the gifts I have for them, they would still be as happy as I wanted them to be eventhough I am not with to celebrate this Holiday season.

Back to EC dropping

Finally, after a few months of being an inactive EC dropper, I've decided to drop some EC love on my droppers for the month of December. I have been inactive, because first, I don't have decent PC to use right now. Our laptop is still not working properly and we just can't afford to get a new one for now. That's why I am using my sister-in-law's computer which is the slowest computer I've ever used in my entire life. For some reason, her computer loads really slow and so each time I'll go to a page and drop some card, it'll take me a few minutes to see the EC gadget. It's just losing my patience each time I try. But, late this afternoon, I felt like dropping.

I'd like to thank those people who keeps dropping EC on my site(s) even if they don't receive a drop back from me and I am really sorry for that. That's why when I did my dropping earlier, I prioritize those who are in my Drop Inbox 'cos I really owe 'em alot.

Best Gift For This Holiday

This time of the year is always known to be the season for giving. It always feels good to be able to give to someone who is/are in need. Nothing can compare the feeling of seeing someone's happiness because of simple things in this life.

The following video is inspired by a true story of an American soldier, who sacrificed by being away from his loved ones so that he can save his country. They are always considered as the hero of the nation. So, while we celebrate our Holiday season with our loved ones, have we thought about our soldiers and their own families being away from each other? They know they won't be together to celebrate the best time of the year, so all they wanted is to be able to provide their loved ones their needs to somehow ease the pain of not being together.

Make our heroes happy by donating to Sears Heroes at Home program. It is a program established by Sears to provide support to the American soldiers, their family, and veterans by the help of some non-profit organizations. Donations made is not tax-deductible and will be given as a gift card equally to all registered families.

You can give any amount you wanted online by clicking the link provided above to fulfill our heroes wishes for this holiday season.

An Unseen Mess

Christmas has just passed which means that I need to start the cleaning 'cos New Year would be here soon. While I was doing my normal chores, I notice something on our sink. It looks like a tiny mold building around the faucets. Oh! it's one of those unseen mess in our house. Good thing I've seen it before it gotten worse.

Anyway, how did your Christmas celebration went? I hope everything is fine for y'all there. Have a Jolly Holidays! :-)

Taking a Holiday Break

Happy Holidays To All!

I'll be taking a Holiday break so you won't see updates in all of my blogs until Saturday. But, let me take this opportunity in letting you all know that I am maintaining six blogs now. Wheewww! I never thought I'll have that number of blogs. I know there are more blogger out there who has more blogs than me, but honestly, I am having hard time now to update all of 'em. But, oh well, I am happy with all of my blogs. Everything about them.

Check Your Blog Page Speed

One of the most important thing to consider in getting more traffic is the speed of your page because when your page loads slowly, your visitor will leave your page before they even view your content. So, you need to make sure that before your visitor leave (or not even letting them leave), they know how interesting your page is by knowing your content.

Earlier, I checked my blog's speed using Stopwatch that is recommended by blogger. I was so shocked and disappointed that my page took more than 5 minutes to load. So, I deleted some widgets that I don't really need and reduced the blog posts displayed. I ran Stopwatch again and guess what? My page loaded completely in 13 seconds.

The following are some things that may cause your page's speed to load slowly:
Number of posts displayed
My page used to have 10 posts displayed and I lowered it down to 6 which helped a lot. Yeah, I can relate to you when you say that you wanted to show a lot of posts to attract your readers. If your readers are patient enough to wait for your page to load, that's one thing but take note that most readers are not like that. So, just make sure that you always have an interesting topic posted which is always the key to more readers and traffic.

I think this is the most common one. Don't put too much widget on your sidebar. Normally, it helps a lot if you put your widgets on the bottom of the page. But I won't suggest that. I'd suggest that you select the best widgets that you needed the most and beneficial to your blog and reader.

Media content
True that we need to put some images and videos on our pages to attract visitors, but again, don't overdo it. You may put a thumbnail of an image then provide a link to the exact size of it. Basically, you can still post image and video but have it smaller so that it won't affect your page's speed that much.

If you are worried that your page loads slowly, then you need to clean up your pages. You can run Stopwatch for you to know which widget takes a lot of time to load or is causing your page to load slowly.

Busy for the holidays! *wink*

We were wrapping the gifts right now. I'm just taking a break while my husband ran to the store to get more gift wrappers 'cos we ran out of it.

By the way, we don't celebrate Christmas because we are Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) and we know that there's not in the bible that says that Jesus Christ is born on December 25th. In addition, literally, when you derive the word Christmas, Christ is our Lord Jesus Christ, while mas is mass. So it doesn't actually mean birth of Christ but mass for the Christ which only Catholics would do in their church service.

Anyway, I am not making this post to talk about religion 'cos I am not really into debating about religion. You may be wondering why I am wrapping gifts when we don't celebrate Christmas. Well, actually, the gifts are not for Christmas. Starting this year, we will have our Family Day with my husband's family each December 25th. We had it on the Christmas because that's the only time that they all don't have work 'cos it's Holiday. The gifts are just special somethings that we give each other before the year ends.

And by the way, if you live in Seattle and trying to find an injury lawyer, just click this link: Seattle injury lawyer.

I hope you'll have a Wonderful Holiday!

I'm pre-occupied as of the moment

Yes, I'm pre-occupied as of the moment. I have been very busy transferring and tweaking our website, Love In Distance. I just got very excited because finally, I was able to make use of the domain that I bought last June. Oh yeah, FINALLY! Dumb me, I just realize that GoDaddy has a Free Hosting for every domain you buy from them. So, now, I made use of that free hosting. Though, I am looking at the paid hosting too but I just can't afford it for now. Better make more money online first before I invest for another site.

Anyway, though the hosting I have now for our website is free, I am still enjoying it because I can do a lot of things there. Now, I have added a Forum page. I am still working on it though. I am not an expert about it, but I am learning. I helped a few Filipinas in their visa processing. Though I didn't do a lot for them, but I am trying my best to answer each question they have since I already experienced the same process. Hopefully, with the forum, more Filipinas who already went through the same process would be able to help other Filipinas who are planning to get their visa to be united with their loved one here in the US. And at the same time, we would be able to socialize online because we all have something in common, married to a US citizen.

I also transferred my Love In Distance ~ Blog to Blogspot so that I can easily (hopefully!) update it since most of my blogs are in Blogspot now. Only one is hosted by Wordpress actually. And thanks to BTemplates again for the Free Template. I like it so much! Now, 3 of my blogs got their templates from them. They are all so awesome.

Now, my concern is, how am I be able to keep all my sites up. Actually, my online addiction is driving me nuts. But I can't help myself. I really love to blog, make sites, explore the net, etc. If only I always have enough time. But a Mom like me? Nah...I will still do the best that I can though to be an active blogger and take care of my family at the same time.

Very Late Breakfast

It's exactly 12:10 here right now and I am still preparing my breakfast. Why? Because I woke up at 10:30 AM. Lazy bum, I know I am. But I keep having hard time going to sleep at night. I'd normally dozed off at around 1:00-2:00 AM, that's why I usually get up very late in the morning.

Anyway, I'm having bacon, egg, and RICE!! Yippee! It's been a while since I had rice. It seems that I already got used to not having rice. People here in the US are not really that big on rice, especially my hubby who's diabetic. He's trying to lessen his carb intake as much as possible and I am very willing to support him with that. It's a way for me to keep myself from diabetes too since I can be prone to it coz diabetes runs in my Mom's side of the family. In fact, my grandfather died from diabetes.

Well, anyway, I gotta eat my breakfast now. But, I just checked my blog out and inviting everyone to join my 2nd BoL's Brain Pain Meme/Contest. It is extended for another week so that you all will have chance to win instant $5.00 through PayPal. I know the prize would not be that much, but it's better than nothing, right? And to join is as EASY AS 1-2-3. So, JOIN NOW.

Check out Our Website with it's Own Domain now

I have been very busy updating and transferring everything to our new website, Love in Distance that has it's own domain now. It was hosted for free before by, but I can't use the domain name that I bought from because I need to pay for monthly hosting. (Sure do, having a website is not cheap)

But yesterday, I was browsing through my GoDaddy account and I realized that I can have website with them using their Website Tonight service. Though it is still hosted for free and has some ads on the web, at least, I can use the domain that I bought since June, 2008. The domain was just parked at GoDaddy since then until yesterday. I am so glad that I am able to use it now and our website is using the domain now.

Anyway, if you wanna know Our Love Story, feel free to visit our website at And please don't forget to sign on our Guestbook so that we could let you know how much we appreciate your visit.

My first snow ever

My first snow ever!

Last Tuesday night, December 9th, was my first snow experience. I can't believe I would be experiencing snow here in Texas because my husband keeps telling me that it rarely snow here. I was really disappointed when I heard that but there's nothing I can do. I felt better though when he told me that we will go somewhere where it'd really snow, but when? I don't know yet.

Then last Tuesday morning, it was really warm. In fact, the temperature hit the highest in December which is 81ºF. Then suddenly, around late afternoon, cold front was coming through then it rained ice in the evening. Then around 11:00 PM, it snowed!

We got so excited. In fact, me and my son went out to our porch without any coat on, just our house shirts and short pants. Was it cold? Yes, it was but we didn't feel it that time coz our excitement took over.

We immediately changed to warmer clothes, put a coat and shoes on. Then went outside with my sis-in-law, Yvonne. We all played with the snow. But it didn't last long though. It only snowed for less than an hour. Oh well, we're in Central Texas. We just got lucky that it snowed. And I am so glad that finally, after 24 years of hoping to see snow (actually, less than that coz I didn't know about snow yet when I was still a baby. hehe), I was able to feel and see it. Though it may not be the snow like in all the other states, where it's all white everywhere, but who cares? We don't even a single bit of snow in the Philippines (hehe).

Naughty surprise for his birthday

I've been having fun doing the holiday shopping. It's sale everywhere but the prices are still overwhelming. Though you can still find cheaper buys if you just search patiently but it would surely take a while.

Anyway, a naughty thought came into my mind while I was in the lingerie section and I saw the sexy lingerie displayed. Something that I want to do for my husband on his upcoming birthday which would be this 20th. I would not talk about it yet here because he reads my blog. Though he may have an idea but I'll keep the full detail as a surprise. I'll just blog about it after his birthday (wink).

Keeping pets healthy

Who says that having pets is as easy as 1-2-3? It can be if you put your heart into it.

So far, we have three cats in our house. I said so far because I am always planning to get my son his won pet, which would be a dog, if he is old and responsible enough to have one. Which would be 1-2 years from now.

Right now, I notice that my son is very responsible for making sure that the cats had foods and water in their bowl. It really amazes me how he does that. He constantly check on their bowls and lets us know that we needed to put more food and water in their bowl.

But having a pet is not just about feeding them. Depending on what kind of pet you have, but normally, each animals needs special care and attention because they are like human beings too. They can be healthy if you keep them healthy but if you don't, you should think a million times before you get yourself a pet. But keeping them healthy is not a hard task as long as you know how. But, again, it is not as easy as 123. You need to provide them their own pet supplements and each type of animals and breeds (for dogs and cats). So, before getting some, you may want to consult the experts first such as the vet.

Achieve a cleaner surface around the house

The most effective way I know in having a clean surface around the house is by using steam cleaners because by just using a small amount of tap water and electricity, it can sanitize and deodorize every surface in your house. Yes, just tap water and electricity, no chemicals at all.

Aside from it can clean your house's surfaces, it is also safe for everyone especially if you have little ones and pets at home.

How it works? The small amount of water that you put in it will become a low moisture vapor that carries heat to the surface you wish to treat. It will kill germs on the surface being treated without using any kind of chemicals. That is why it is very safe and effective.

Yesterday, someone of Friendster sent me a message inviting me to join the University of Southeastern Philippines, Obrero Campus Online Community. Of course, I joined it coz USeP is my Alma Matter. I used to attend high school and college in USeP and it would be nice to see my schoolmates back then again in that online community that a genius had created.

So, if you are a USePian like me, join us in our community and reunite with high school or college friends.

Me and My Weird Taste Buds

My husband thinks that I have a weird taste buds coz I like weird combination of foods just like pizza and tacos with ketchup. I know I am not alone for liking this combination. I think my sister-in-law is weirder than me coz she likes pizza with ranch dressing. Though I really think that sometimes I am weird. Just like last night, I decided to eat hard-boiled eggs with tartar sauce.

It just came to my mind last night while I was eating mac and cheese. I was actually craving for pizza but can't get one so I thought of something else. Hard-boiled eggs came into my mind and then the tartar sauce. Sounds good to me so I tried it and yes, it really did taste good. Now, I have a new combination of food. You may try it and let me know how weird my taste buds are. :-)

Not used to Winter, but I Love it

I guess, almost every part of US can feel the winter breeze now. I don't know for sure because I haven't been around the US yet, but I know for sure that it is cold here now in Texas. The temperature here, these past few days, is somewhere around 30ºF-60ºF. Remember, 32ºF is the freezing point. In the Philippines, we use Celsius instead of Farenheit which the freezing point is 0ºC.

Anyway, it is hard for me because I am not used to cold weather and it's the same for my son. But I shall say, it is better to be cold around than humid which is what we usually have in the Philippines. At first, before we went here in Texas, I was worried that we can't survive the coldness, but I was surprised to see all the things that would keep us warm. Of course, there's the winter jacket and all the other winter stuffs to wear that I have only seen here (of course, no one would want to sell winter stuffs in the Philippines when there's no winter here .. logic!). Then their airconditioner has warm and cold buttons. They also have an electric blanket that would help you keep warm the whole night if the heater in your house is not enough.

After knowing all those things, I was not worried anymore. I should've known then that if they don't have all those stuffs to keep anybody warm, then all the people here in the US shouldn't have survived winter. Oh well, I was just pessimistic about it. And somehow, I am loving the coldness.

I can see clearly now

Yesterday, I had my very first eye exam here in the US. That is why I wasn't able to update my blogs coz me and my family had been out almost all day.

Anyway, my eye exam went well except for I didn't have the prescription for my contact lenses yet coz the doctor can't determine which one suits me best until I tried couple more toric contact lenses that he is suggesting.

I am nearsighted and I have astigmatism as well. That is why I need toric contact lenses coz that type of lenses will correct astigmatism. I tried one brand of toric but I didn't like it (or I don't like toric at all) coz it is more thicker and bigger than the normal contact lenses that I am used to wear. But I know that it is what I needed. So, my eye doctor gave me two contact lenses, the normal and the toric, so that I can decide which one I really like.

For now, I am contented with the normal one though I know that the toric can let me see clearer. I am now wearing an opti-free contact lenses which is best for someone who is lazy like me who doesn't normally remove their contact lenses at night when going to bed coz this type of contact lenses can let the eyes breath and get some oxygen. Though all doctors would still suggest to remove contact lenses before sleeping or let eyes rest from contact lenses at least six hours, but if we don't do as what they say, opti-free contact lenses is best for us.

Right now, the eye clinic where I went to has only one brand of toric contact lenses that suits me. But he wants me to try couple more brands which are cheaper than any other toric but they don't have it right at this instance. So, he ordered some from the manufacturer which means that I need to see him again once it arrives in his clinic. By that time, I'd know which one should be prescribed to me.

So long, Tatay Benhur...

A text message woke me up early this morning. It was from my Mom and it is a bad news. Benhur, a friend, used to be my teammate in Fighting Irish Team (Chat Group), and a workmate in Concentrix (formerly known as Link2Support), has passed away in the dawn of December 5th while he was at work.

It is so sad to know that someone you know and who is used to be close to you died.

Tatay Benhur. I can always remember him as a fun-loving, naughty, and a good friend. He is one of a kind, I can say. A faithful husband and a loving father to his two cute boys. He loves his family to death. We know that coz he talks about them a lot. Hardworking. He is such as good man. Everyone can say that.

No, he is not as old as what you think he is coz I call him Tatay. He is in his mid-forties. I only call him Tatay coz he is the oldest in our group. But he looks young despite of his age coz he loves to smile. He seldom talks about his problem so you'd almost think that he doesn't have one.

"Tatay, though you left the immortal world, but your memories remains with us, always will, especially those happy times that you share with us all. Your unique way of making us laugh in our stomach would never be forgotten. We love you Tatay. So long ..."

Paris made the right choice

I have been watching Paris Hilton's My New BFF series on MTV eversince it started. It started with 18 wanna-be-Paris's-BFF guys and gals, but last week, two were left: Britney from Boston and Vanessa from Alaska (no, they're not Britney Spears and Vanessa Williams. lol!). Earlier today was the season finale and honestly, it is making me nervous too (yeah, you can call me nuts!).

I was disappointed that she chose Vanessa over Shelley from Texas. I never liked Vanessa because, just like what the contestants was telling about her, she is just an obsessed fan of Paris. I guess everyone sae that except Paris. She was blinded with Vanessa's crying, really. Paris is emotional and she is so vulnerable.

Shelley, on the other hand, is a nice girl from a small town in Texas. Nice is always the first one work anyone can say about her. She is nothing but nice though and everyone says that she is boring, except for me. I like her because no one hates her. She is the only one among the contestants that doesn't have enemy.

But anyway, Vanessa and Britney are competing against each other to be Paris's BFF. They both had the chance to show to Paris who deserves to win because each of them will spend a whole day with Paris in New York.

But in the long run, I am so glad that Britney won. I never liked Vanessa, she is a stalker and she proved it a lot of times. Paris doesn't need her. Britney is a cool rock star who is always mistaken as using Paris to fulfill her dreams.

One thing I can say to Paris, you made the right choice girl. Luv yah! Hop to TTYL with you (grin).

First Impression Lasts

I had my first order from over a week ago and today was one of my orders delivered. Notice that I highlighted one. I ordered two items, a 23.6 fl oz Body Wash and Lightweight Hair Dryer. For some reason, they can't ship it both at the same time. They didn't even mention the reason. But since I am a patient customer, I let that pass.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from them telling me that there was a problem with the shipping of the second item which is the hair dryer. They said that the problem was with their distribution department and it was backordered. So, what, I'll be expecting it to arrive, I guess, two weeks from now?!

Wait, there's more. Today, when I got my package, I was totally disappointed because I had eleven sponges in the box instead of the body wash. What the hell?! Are they kidding me???

So, I called their customer service hotline and spoke a very calm representative. It's not that I wanted him to not be calm, but it seems that they are used to handling situations like what I have, A TOTAL MESS. He offered me 2 options, a refund or an express delivery of my item (3-day shipping). I chose the express delivery. So, now, let's see what would happen next.

After you rrad this post, it is up to you if you want to order from I know there can be worst than what I experienced with them, but for me, this is the WORST SERVICE I ever had in my entire life.

Coffee, please?

I'm not really fond of coffee but when I was working in the call center, I need to have a sip or else I will be conk out while working. Truly, coffee makes us call center graveyard shift pips alive. The only problem though is that the capresso in our pantry is, most of the time, in use, especially during at night. So, normally, we would ask someone on break to make us coffee so that we will have our coffee ready when it would be our turn to take a break.

Well, I just miss those moments while I was working as call center agent. It was my longest job, so far and though there are some things I don't like with the company and some people I worked with, I enjoyed being a call center agent, HONESTLY.

A nature-lover, I am

I am always a nature-lover. I love to be outside and do lots of outdoor activities. Unfortunately, I can't always do that because we live near the city. But I still want to be close to nature, one way or another.

One thing I wanted to do is to plant some trees in our yard. They would also add shade and fresh air in our area which what I like the most. One tree that I want to plant in our yard is the Mulberry trees because I like mulberry fruits so much plus they are a great source of vitamins.

Oh, I can't wait to start planting those trees in our yard.

Serious about working at home

I used to have a stable job eversince I finish college. But since I chose to be with my husband here in TX, USA, I also chose to be a stay-at-home Mom. Well, it is not actually a choice I made, but I just don't have a choice (makes sense?!).

The reason behind is we are still on our process of getting our Greencard since I arrived here with a K1 fiancee visa that is considered as non-immigrant visa but still fell under the immigrant visa category.

I can say that it is somehow a blessing in disguise because staying at home with my son makes me closer to him because I get to spend my whole time with him and we both love it. Right now, he is still 2, and as time would pass by, we, mothers, whether we like it or not, but it will come to a point where our children wouldn't want to spend their whole time with us because they will meet friends and more. So, while they still want do it, it is good to take the opportunity because they won't stay that way for long.

So, right now, I am getting serious about working at home. I get to earn a bit with my blogging, but it's not enough to support our needs. Right now, I am still searching for good online jobs where I can earn a bigger amount of money. One of the best online job I saw is the small business opportunity that is powered by Microsoft where you can franchise from any small businesses available.

If you are serious about working at home, you may want to check that opportunity that I am talking about.
