Week in Pictures 1

"No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change." 

Barbara DeAngelis

Hello everyone! Wasn't able to update my blogs few days back, because, I was sick and had some "me" time for a while.
So, today, I will show you what I been through last week. I planned to post it yesterday; Sunday. But, because I'm sick and too lazy to open up my laptop, that's why I just posted it today.

Starting the week
My Monday is a bit stressful for me because, I cleaned my new office and arrange some of my office supplies. 
It always give me goosebumps when I have new stuffs. I'm becoming too much protective to it. 

Tuesday has been a weird day for me. I've received weird compliments, stuffs and yes, that weird slipper too that my Mama gave me.

Reached, Finally!
I've been in Google Adsense for more than a year already and just last December I reached the payment threshold which is $10. So, they sent me a mail to confirm my address and probably if I'm real too and not just a robot. (Haha!)   

Too Lazy
Last Thursday, I started to feel  ill and that's why I didn't bother to get up and fixed myself. I just worked in my bed and didn't go to office. That's why I wasn't able to connect in the internet because, there is no internet connection in our house. I just did what I have to do in Microsoft Office Exel.

Another Load of Work
  I just finished my last assignment on Friday last week and that's then I receive another load of work and stored it in that 16GB flash drive. 

 The Usual Hopeless Romantic Me
I've planned not to do anything on weekends but to watch Korean dramas. I got so hooked with this Korean drama; Coffee House. It made me cry, laugh and get mad along the show.
I really like how the style of every Korean drama stories. It always make me inspired.

Too Hot
The weather has been too unpredictable these days. The weather report in the TV and in my phone says it will be rainy on Sunday but, it didn't! It was too hot.
Me and my brother are in the middle of hunting another DVD of Korean Drama  and he saw a  little girl opening her Cornetto. That's why he asked me if we could buy Cornetto too. Oh well, I'm just a good Ate, that's why I give him what he want since he escort me on my Korean drama hunt. 

Have a great week ahead!

Day 19 - A Picture of a Letter

I haven't received a letter from someone since birth. That doesn't mean I don't give letters as well. In special occasions, I always give my parents a letter written by me from the heart.

So, since I haven't received any letter from someone special or even my family and relatives, I'll just post the photo of what I received this morning when I opened our door.

Yes. That's from Google. What it contains inside is the PIN Number for my Google Adsense. I think their purpose of mailing it is to verify my address or something like that. Its nothing special, but at least, seems like a letter to me.

$10 a Year At Walgreens? Not Bad!

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
I just remember how worried my mom become when she know someone of us in the family is sick. She immediately contact doctors for a prescription of the right medicines.
I've stumbled upon in a site and saw that they are offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. Which I think would be perfect for our family.
You'll only pay $10 a year and your whole family will be covered; which includes your spouse (if you are married) and other dependents who aged 22 and younger and also, your pet will be covered too. But, if you are single and you think this one is good for yourself, you may also avail for it for $5. When you join, you will surely receive discount prices on your every prescription you have.

What makes a $10 a year not bad, you may ask. Well, they have more benefits for you:
-Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
-Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
-Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.
Satisfied? Good!
So, let's support Walgreens and stay updated of what's new from them by following them on this social networks:

Day 18 - A Picture of Your Biggest Insecurities

Since I started taking vitamins, I can't help but notice that I am gaining weight. Since then, my pants and jeans that have waist line of 26 and 27 doesn't fit me anymore.

When I was still 13 to 15 years old, all I want is to get fat somehow because I'm so thin. But, when I turned 16, I get conscious of my body. But what can I do? I can't help to eat because I easily get hungry, probably because of the vitamins I'm taking. But then again, my mom said that I look just fine and I even look cute being a bit chubby.

Right now, my biggest insecurity is other girls having a flat tummy. I want a flat tummy too! :((( comments

Day 16 and 17 of 30 Days of Reflection

Hi everyone. Its been a while since I add something to my 30 Days of Reflection because of the same reason I had before; too many urgent assignments to do.

So yea, since day 16th says a picture of someone who inspires me and day 17th says a picture of something that has made a huge impact in my life.So, I decided that I'll just make it all together since they're just one person who inspires me and made a huge impact in my life. Is it obvious already? Its Miey Cyrus!

I have never meet her and I think I will never! Its just too impossible. But, in many ways, she inspired me and that made a huge impact in my life. 

But, above all that, it is the God Father who made everything possible in life. Without Him, where will I be, right?

I hope you guys are doing well whatever you do and wherever you are in the world.

Mango Float + Halo-halo = HEAVEN

Yesterday, me, my little sisters and my Mom went out to bond. It was a boring and very warm day that's why I asked Mom if she could treat us some palamig. Little did I know, Mom was also craving for a halo-halo and that's why she automatically said yes.

We had two choices where we would like to go for halo-halo. It is either in Uncle Macs Siomai House or Zam's Food & Fudge Restaurant. I suggested we better go for Zam's since we always go to Uncle Mac's in the past.
Zam's Food & Fudge Restaurant's menu.

What Am I Really Thinking When I Started Blogging

 All I want is to have an open diary. I just like to express everything I'm feeling and thinking to anyone who cares to read it. But, that changed when I saw an episode of Mel & Joey about blogging. The owner of YugaTech was featured there, and he talked about how to make money by just blogging.

When I started blogging, way way back 2009 or 2010 I never thought I'll be making money and working online. No. I didn't start with this blog. I had a silly and immature blog before which has an URL and title of my real name. As days passed by, I've learned that publishing your name online is somehow not that good. So, I deleted it after a year after. (Too late, eh?) I didn't aim for anything that time.

I owe everything to that blog. My online career started because of it. I only have a desktop computer before (my parents bought it for me) and now, I have a laptop that I bought myself and few gadgets too. Who would think that from silly, immature and diary-like blog would lead me into this?

To make the long story short, there's a guy who've read my blog and asked if I know something about HTML codes and I said yes, but not much. He again asked me if I'm willing to learn and undergo in a training. I didn't hesitate and said yes instantly. That's then! And now, I'm a database builder. Imagine how far I've go from just 2 years of working online? At first, I was just an HTML checker for all the company's website we had. I was just 16 then when I started. And, I thanked God for everything, especially for not letting me give up.

I'm not really blogging in this shot. I was just watching Youtube videos!
How much blog I got now? 4 blogs and 2 websites. I'm really worried nowadays because, I can't find enough time to update the other blogs and websites. Their rankings are going down already. I'm also worried that my blogpals and buddies would unfollow me because I haven't comment-back or visited their blogs too.

You guys, please do forgive me. I'm so having a lot of urgent projects to finish in my work.. The worst part of this is that I'm not having enough sleep!

How about you? What were you thinking when you start blogging? SHARE it to the world! <3 comments

Day 15 - A Picture of Something You Want To Do Before You Die

I'm not into traveling, really. But, before I die, all I want to do is to travel. I wanna go to Paris. I think its one of the romantic places in the world. I want to see those lovely lights at night in Paris. It would be so perfect! :)

I always wanted to go up in the Eiffel Tower (if it is even possible.) I will die with no regrets, really. HAHA!

Day 14 - A Picture of Someone You Never Imagine Your Life Without

There are times that me and my mom always have a cat fight. Yea, cat fight! We fight for some silly reasons. She doesn't want me to go out without her, like, seriously? HAHA! But now, I'm already used to it. There are also times that I tease her. I'd say "Ma, I'll go out today... by myself!" She'll stare back at me like she's doubting. She often thinks that when I go out, I'll withdraw money. But, honestly, I'm not.

My mom doesn't trust me when it comes to money matters. Even if, I'm already making money by myself. She said I'm too young (obviously, I'm still 18 but, not that young). She even said that when I'm still not yet 20 years old and still living under her roof, I'll follow her rules and regulations. She's like the queen! She really is. She also said that she'll just set me free (decide on my own) when I'm already 20. Okay, that's 2 more years.

But, seriously... Even if my mom's so fierce and strict, I respect and love her with all my heart. Without her, how could I ever be in here, blogging? There are actually a lot of things that she have sacrificed for us, her family. She sometimes think that everything she have done for us isn't appreciated but, she's really wrong. We just don't know how to express it.

All my money, I always give it to her. She'll budget it for me and the rest of our family. Actually, she's also right. I still don't know how to handle my money and that's why I don't react much when she gets it away from me.

So yea, I can't live without her.  comments

Day 13 - A Picture Of Your Favorite Band/Artist

Nothing can change my love for Westlife. Their music is just so good to my ears. It makes me relax! My favorite song from them is More Than Words.

I grow up listening to them. You can't blame me if I choose them over those new boy bands of this new generation. comments

Daughterly Love

Would you believe that in my 18 years of existence that I don't have a picture of myself with my own father? Not until this New Year's and yet, it was a stolen shot.

There are really times that I'm shy to ask my Papa for a picture with me. Silly, right? Yet, I'm so happy that I finally have a picture with my dear father. I have even made a poem for him.

"Every day the whole year through,
I feel grateful you are my father.
Some fathers don't have time for their kids,
But for you I'm never a bother.
You always make the effort to listen and share;
You're there whenever you're needed.
Because I know how much you care,
My problems are all defeated.
Dad, you are truly admired and adored,
And I hope you always know,
Your daughter's affection for you is strong,
And my love continues to grow."

 I may not look happy in the picture but, deep inside my heart's partying.

Day 12 - A Picture of Something You Love

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'll be joining memes again because, I miss the fun of joining them and at the same time I'll continue my 30 days of reflection too. Cool, isn't it?

Pancit Canton
I love nothing but eating. Who doesn't? Especially when I'm working late at night, all I think is to eat pancit canton so that I can't fall asleep. But, right now I'm controlling the foods I ate and going to eat. I just realize gaining weight is not easy. My jeans and blouses doesn't fit me anymore.

I'm on a balance diet at the moment. I need to achieved that 26 or 27 waist line again. HAHA! :)

Anyway, this will be my share for this week's:

Plans for 2012

Hello 2012! My first 2 days of this year was a blast. Our new year celebration was just simple but amazing! How was yours? I hope it was fun and also your fingers are still complete!

For the last week of 2011, my desktop computer went down while I was in the middle of a heavy work. That desktop computer has served me for almost 2 years and I think it is now asking for its medication. (LOL) My technician friend has been busy since the last few days and my computer is resting too. I'm now using my laptop/notebook for updating my blogs and websites. I can't work with the heavy files with this one because it will slow down.

My laptop/notebook.
Anyway, let's go down to my plans for 2012. Ready? Here it goes:
  • I will finish the 30 Days of Reflection here in this blog.
  • Will join memes again! :)
  • My 2 community websites will be more active.
  • Have my own business cards.
  • Will create my own PayPal account since I'm already in the legal age. (Already done)
  • Have my own bank account and debit card.
  • Postal ID and passport
  • Will go to Cebu for Sinulog
  • Help my mom finance her little carenderia plan.
  • Socialize with more people
  • Study online to improve my writing skills (If I have a skill. LOL!)
There are actually a lot more but, they are too many to mention. I'll try my very best to do or accomplish them all. Even if I can't do them all, at least I can do some.

And anyway, what are your plans for this year?

Happy New Year everyone! comments
