At The Moment

It's Thursday and spring break. Mom's not working and the kiddo plus a friend are bored. What's something fun to do? The kids said "swimming!!!!".

Swimming it is. So, currently...

...we're at the pool, in a 70 degrees overcast weather. I am not in the water but I can feel the chilly breeze while the kids doesn't care about how freezing the water feels.

...listening to my Spotify "luv luv luv" playlist with "Saving All My Love For You" by Whitney Houston is currently playing. No, not sentimental at the moment. Just like having this playlist on cos I have it available offline. Saving data is the plan!

Also, can't help but hear the kids' laughter along with splashing water.

...eating Big Mac that my awesome husband brought me. I left home to take kids swimming as soon as I got out of bed. So I had to ask him to pick me something to eat on his way home from the store. It's not my favorite, but when you're hungry, guess anything edible works.

...thinking about my long term goals and also the short term ones. But just recently, I've been focusing more on the long term. Thus, I made the huge decision in becoming unemployed and owning a business with WFG.

I know it won't be an easy way but just like any other job, nothing is easy at first. It takes time, a lot of trial and errors, and the right people with the same vision. I may not know what's along the way, but I know for sure what my goal is.

I hope everyone is having a great day so far! Happy Thursday y'all!

5 Jobs On The Side Anyone Can Do

I've been employed with three companies and have officially held four different positions, but I have done way more than that. I could say that one of my strength is flexibility and weakness is stagnation. I couldn't do the same thing over and over. If I've learned to do one, I always try to do something else.
In my 16 years of employment (not with the same company), I've done and learned so much. About 2 years out of that, I stayed at home to take care of my then toddler. And as much as I wanted to be a full-time mother, we couldn't financially afford it, so I worked from home until I was able to drive and get a full-time job. For the past 6 years, I was employed with the same company. Then, I left just last month to go full time with something that I've been doing part-time for a few months now.

If you're currently working full time right now, I assure you that you can easily do these jobs on the side. So, here are the five jobs that I did (still doing some) that anyone can do on the side. No special talents required.

Money Saving Tips

When we decide to change, we must change for the better or it will defeat the purpose of change.

I used to hate money! I hate it so much that I never hold on to them long enough to spend it for something more important. I hate it so much that I never try to save them. But I realized that we should love our hard-earned money because we spend time for it. Time that we will never be able to get back. We sacrificed a lot for it. We invested too much emotions for it. Have you ever think of that?

I didn't, until just recently, when someone invited me over to watch a presentation which opened my mind and made me realize that I'm not doing a good job taking care of something that I worked hard for. We work hard to earn money for our family and to live our dreams someday, don't we?

Blog changes = Life changes

I am so excited for these new updates in my blog.

As you've seen in one of my previous posts, I've been blogging for eight years. Imagine all the changes I've done?! Countless - some drastic and some are not.

So, now, I've done another huge update.

First, my domain name was changed from to my real name

I've been in a long break before I started blogging again and took some income assignments, here and there. But I realized I'm not, and will never be as active, as what I used to. Plus I forgot most of the blogging tricks I used to practice. So, I turn into finding someone who could guide me in maximizing my blog's purpose. Her first advise was to create a brand - something unique and will stand out. So, yes, I think my real name is nothing but a perfect brand for me.

Life is not a movie

The Top 10 Reasons People Hate Their Job

As per LinkedIn columnist, Ilya Pozin, founder of Pluto TV, here are the top 10 reasons employee’s full-time job may be hating their job:

10. They think the grass is greener someplace else. If your employee’s friends are having an amazing experience at another company, why wouldn’t they be envious? The transparency of employee benefits and perks at other companies can sometimes lead your employees to dream about working elsewhere. Give your employees something worth bragging about. They’ll be more motivated, eager to spread the good word, and you’ll benefit from an improved company culture.
9. Their values don’t align with the company. Dissatisfaction is bound to take place if your employees aren’t sold on the same things you are. If your company values creativity and collaboration, it’s in your best interest to make screening for these values a mandatory part of your hiring process. Regular feedback and reviews can help you stay in tune with employees’ values and how they align with what the company needs and values most.

Blogging For Eight Years

I am in the process of updating my blog again because now that I am a work-at-home Mom again (for the most part), I have more time to write a post regularly. When I say I am updating, it doesn't only mean putting up a new post, but I am overhauling my entire blog - changing the design, logo, name (maybe), and cleaning up some old posts.

Browsing through my old posts will probably take me the longest because, I just realized, I've had close to 600 posts with 8 years of blogging (not counting the drafts that I haven't published yet). There was a hiatus but I still revisit and check with my visitors from here and there.

I can't believe it's been eight years since I decided to brave through the world wide web with my opinions, open my life, share my ideas, and actually earned from it at some point.

YOLO: You Only Love Oreos

Good morning, Austin!

It's wet and gloomy, I know. To be honest, I don't remember the last time I enjoyed this kind of weather since I had to wake up early in the morning to go to work like most people do. And all the time I was at work, all I could think of is, "I wish I am home right now under the covers. This is the perfect weather for it."

Well, I am no longer employed. So, I am home, but not under the covers. I still got up as early as 5am, by choice, because I am excited to start my day and think of ways I could improve myself with my new endeavor. But just not having to drive on the wet road makes a whole lot of difference. Plus the thought knowing that I am living my life with a purpose.

I love this present weather, I kid you not. Actually, I am enjoying the 'present' better, now that I know that I am closer to a better 'future'.

How to survive a crazy wife (Bedtime)

Just one of those random questions I ask my husband, "Do you love me?" (Ha! Random?!NO!). Of course, he'd have to say yes.

He is smart like that.

Then, I asked him, "How do you love a crazy wife?" (now, this is random!). This is actually the first time I asked him this question. So, I told him, "you should write a book with that title!". As a normal husband as he is, he said, "No, I'm gonna write about 'How to survive a crazy wife'". Then he started listing things.

B|W Black and White is Beauty Worthy

"B|W is not just Black & White photos but it must be Beauty Worthy.."

Naks! Guess I am serious about branding my own black & white photos. 

I don't have a studio. All I have is my well-lit vanity desk where I take my selfies at. I might not be able to put up too many portraits but I am hoping someday I could. For now, I am more than happy enhancing people's selfie. And no, I don't charge anything. This is just something that I enjoy doing and I love hearing people's reaction when they appreciate what I did.

If you want some good ole black and white photos, send me your portrait and I'd be more than glad to enhance it.

Random Thoughts: The Answered Prayer

remember that night like it was just yesterday. I was down on my knees, crying to God, heartbroken and lost. The night when he left me of uncertainties if he's gone forever or he would keep his promise of non-existent love. I know it was over between us but I just shrug the thought of it, hoping that the reality was wrong. But it wasn't! I used to think that I am strong and when this happens, I would be just fine - but I was wrong. Very wrong.

I was in so much pain and I felt him hurting inside me. I had to be strong.

I told God, "I am deeply sorry for I have wronged you, I did something against Your will, and I know I am being punished. But please, spare my child. I may not be righteous to ask you for anything, but you are my loving Father, and I love my unborn child as much you love me. He hasn't done anything to deserve suffering. Let him have a good life even it means I will have to suffer all my life. You have never betrayed me God despite of the countless times I betrayed You. Please do not betray my child as he will grow up knowing You and believing in You. I do not expect anything for myself as I have sinned a lot. But please give my child everything he needs."

That was my prayer and He listened.

As I look at my son, I know I did something good at some point to deserve him and God still being on my side.
