When My Memory Escapes Me

I've been accident prone lately or I am being too clumsy and careless? Either or I am so thankful that blog helps me keep the good memories in one place and read them back and see how happy the experience was.

I realized that everything is fleeting. You have to live by the moment and not for the future. Because you can never tell when you will be gone and how long will your memory will last.

When you can't have something you want let it go, if it's meant for you to have you don't have to work so hard to get it. It will find it's way to you. Now I understand this cliche saying "If you love someone set them free, if it's your they will come back, if it doesn't it never was."

Perks of Blogging

After taking a back seat from work because I have to stay home more often because of my daughter's condition my social life halted big time and I felt my life was boring. For someone who has enjoyed work and loved the work I did leaving it was not easy. But of course someone has to do it.

I Thank God that I found blogging, public blogging, social blogging and paid blogging. I am still able to do what I love, write, socialize, go to places and get paid doing it.

I am not yet at par with the probloggers when it comes to income but from someone who just started making income with my blog this August I think I am ahead than the usual phase. I am so thankful for this and for my mom who has been supportive of me to help me watch over my daughter when I have events to attend to.

Look Great Inspite Of The Crisis

The economic recession has slowed down most businesses in the world. Some are already in a depressed mood and some don't feel like looking good at these times because some would think it's inappropriate to look expensive these days. But who said looking good is equal to being expensive?

You don't need to buy new clothes all the time, all you have to do is invest on good accessories that will compliment all the clothing you already have in your wardrobe to create different looks.

For women you can invest in a number of scarves in different colors. Did you know there are 101 ways to wear a scarf? Or have a pair of those gladiator inspired shoes it's the in thing this summer but can also be worn in not so cold days with your dress, shorts, jeans or pants.

For men they can have a stock of ties with varying designs. Or they could invest in one or two piece of mens designer clothing that can be mixed and matched with the rest of the collection of clothes they already have in their closet.

The trick is to know how to mix and match your clothes so it will appear that you have tons of clothes even if you only have a few. Browse over fashion sites so you can see the latest trends and how you can play with a piece of accessory or clothing you have.

My Memories Of SM City North Edsa

Last weekend I was invited to see the new look of the first mall I ever visited in my life, SM City North EDSA that was built in 1985. I was amazed by the latest innovation and pleased with how they created a shoppers corner in the sky with The Sky Garden. I so love it.

It's above everything especially of the noise and the smog at the ground level, as SM North is at the edge of the busy street of EDSA going to the Northern part of the country.

Lush greenery, wonderful waterworks and a string of specialty food stores and shop are available at the Sky Garden and it will be open from 7AM to 2AM. Read more about this latest innovation of SM Supermalls The Sky Garden.

Mischievous Child

I wish my parents had more than three children. I wish that we are six or twelve so I have someone with me right now to help me out fixing the house. My mom is too old to help me move the furniture around although she is still very strong and energetic for her age. My daugther is not available for such task yet, but I would be training her real soon for all the house chores. She can pack away and wipe the floors when prodded. But other major task like washing the dishes, doing the laundry, change the curtains and so on and so forth is something she could not grasp yet.

When I was a child at her age though I can do all those things. I even watch my dad do simple carpentry like fix or install electrical stuff, do simple carpentry and even fixing the roof when it leaks. He was like a pro from Phoenix Roofer doing the job.

Because of my curiosity, he left a mark on my right hand. A cigarette butt mark because I was squeezing myself wherever he goes and watch him do whatever he has to do. Accidentally he was shaking the cigar and my hand met the cigarette so here remains the mark of my mischievousness that I think my daugther got from me.

Detach and Ignore

You can either view those two words negatively or you can view them in a more productive and positive light.

When one is too attached at a situation, place or thing, it is very hard for him to let it go. When you detach yourself from the emotion and materialism you will be free from all burdens and you will live happy.

If one gives importance to every little situation, place or thing, pleasing or annoying, one tends to get affected very easily. You have to ignore the annoying once and do not place too much regard on the pleasure then you will thread life lightly free from all burdens and cares.

Things To Live By


1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner
like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less
food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5. Make time for prayer.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile.


11. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what
their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control..
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her
mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems
are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like
algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.
28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your
family and friends will. Stay in touch.


32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

iBlog5 5th Philippine Blogging Summit

It was the first time I attended a Blogging Summit and I was glad I did. Aside from meeting bloggers I only interact online I learned more about blogging and how to improve on my hobby that is now an industry on its own.

Congratulations to the UPIS for organizing such event that is now on it's 5th year and to Janette Toral who has been advocating education and information about the digital world. I will be looking forward to iBlog6 and hope that there will be more time for question and answer.

To read more about what I learned from the iBlog 5 you can check out this post.

Tell Me What Are You Thinking?

"Worries, Worries, and more worries. This seems to be the consensus of more and more women these days in regards to where their partners eyes are and what they are thinking. I deal with more emotional issues from women in regards to this issue than not."

"Women all want to be the center of their partners attention. They also want to know exactly where he is looking and what he is thinking. But to what degree are we going to continue to imprison ourselves in the thought, where is he looking and what is he thinking? I have done a ton of research regarding the male mind and their inability to not look. They simply are just lookers /observers. Men are visual creatures and women these days work very hard at looking good. Notice how the media has also worked on us women to create these competitions amongst each other. How else can they sell their wrinkle and beauty products and make the millions of dollars on cosmetic surgery that they do these days? It's all out there! Morals have taken a back seat to making money. The innocent ones are the ones that suffer, as usual. I know I repeat this fact in just about everything I write, but it is the one fact that we must start to look at. WE are allowing the media to dictate and/or control our self-worth."

"In some relationships, I believe that a partner will get away with what they can. It is human to error. It's sad but true. From the day we are born we are challenging life and seeing what we can get away with. In any relationship, there will always be someone trying to get away with things. This may or may not be a conscious thought. As I said, we are only human."

"For a lot of men, staring at other women is really, a very bad habit. The men that do not do this, will agree that they are just plain rude and disrespectful. To know that one's partner is hurting or uncomfortable in a situation, but continues regardless of how they feel, is purely selfish, disrespectful and very mindless. For the man that degrades his partner, and falls for all the unrealistic images that Hollywood is telling him is the real thing, is truly as small minded as his penis. Harsh words, yes. but well deserving at the same time. This must be brought to the for-front immediately."

"Pornography is an absurd example to what real life sex should be like. It is abuse of another kind and it degrades men as well as women. It is cheap and very addicting. Pornography is like any other negative sexual device being offered to the world for money. It is destruction of reality and it is a persons choice to look or not too look. It is their choice to degrade themselves when taking part in pornography. It is their choice to truly understand and follow through on their commitment to their partner. It is also their choice to be all alone, wanted by no one that is real. These are all negative habits that a person can change if they want to."

Why do so many women feel that their partners are in fact being disrespectful? Why do so many men scream that they are NOT being disrespectful?

"There are millions of women that are battling this worry of where he is looking and what is he thinking. Most women continue to maintain their relationships and deal with life as best they can. Other women spend countless hours reading and paying therapists to tell them they are not crazy or imagining things. Couples spend way to much time debating this issue and always end up at square one. Both men and women need to work together and change their habits. Women must stop allowing their own insecurities to magnify their partners gestures and reactions which only results in a negative control over their happiness. Men must try to be more aware of what exactly triggers off their partners worries and not take her reactions so defensively."

"This does NOT say that women are to bow down & ignore what is obvious disrespect in some cases, but we need to really look at just how serious their looks are and how serious we are taking them. To allow a man's actions to effect how we see ourselves, is a definite mistake on our part. It is up to us to feel good about ourselves, no one else. It is very hard when we care what someone thinks about us. We tend to use that as our happiness meter. Too many women are allowing the weaknesses of men to determine their happiness and self-worth. We are real people and yes we have stretch marks and we have life wrinkles..which are as much a part of us as our curves. These characteristics are what make us that much more unique. For these men that think it is all about the poster girl, I feel very sorry for them. They are losing out on so much of the good, genuine, real stuff. Our own self-acceptance is the key in being able to overcome so many of the little things that we cannot change. That is why we must work on knowing ourselves and knowing that we are a special, unique person."

I am going to play the devils advocate here for a bit.
Men Say:

We look, yes but that's all.

It's not like we want to have sex with them.

Women worry about everything.

Women are always jealous of other women.

Women get mad at us when another women happens to catch our eye.

We do not go into strip bars to see girls, we go to talk to the guys.

We cannot help it if there are scantily dressed women serving us at that restaurant.

Its only a picture.

Women are immature when they try to stop us having fun.

Guys should be able to go to bars with their friends.

Guys don`t discuss woman's body parts when they are hanging out together.

If women trusted us, we should be able to go anywhere.

Alcohol does not make us flirtatious.

We married them, so what more do they want?

Women say:

He is looking at her and wishes I looked like her.

He is undressing her in his mind.

He is doing this to make me worry.

I wish I looked like her.

Why does he have to look every time a pretty girl walks past?

Men could also go to the do-nut shop to talk.

Men do not have to choose restaurants that advertise scantily dressed women waitresses.

We want to be our men's fun.

Bars are not for married people unless they are there together.

Men are always looking and discussing female body parts.

We do trust, but we also feel a thing called respect for them. Some places that men go are not respectable.

Alcohol makes everyone a bit more lose and flirtatious.

There is more to marriage than just saying we are married...that bottom line is very old.

"These are just a few oppositions that men and women deal with. We definitely think on a different wave length. We see things differently and we feel differently about certain issues also. That's what makes us men and women. The trick in being able to live together and respecting each other, is to understand that we are different and also to be able to make compromises for our partner's happiness. After all, is that not what its all about? Making each other happy!"

"Where he is looking or what he is thinking is an issue that will not be fixed in one article or even ten. But as long as we work at it and continue to communicate with each other, we will eventually find a common ground."

"These are my thoughts and they certainly do not include every single person on earth."

I would however be very interested:

Gents...on exactly & truthfully your thoughts on what are you thinking and where are you looking?

Ladies...I would love to hear your exact and truthful thoughts on how his actions make you feel!

A Week Of Bliss

If I could afford it, I would like to have a week of vacation in one of the prime vacation spots in the world. A place where every recreation facilities is available and a place where everything I could possibly need is beyond reach. Somewhere I can feel I own the place and not just any tourist. Hilton Head rings a bell when this kind of resort comes to mind specifically the Hilton Head Island.

The Hilton Head vacation rentals has a week of package stored for everyone. Their vacation planner can customize your stay for you depending on your preference and budget.

You can choose to stay in one of their fantastic beachside or ocean front properties and be stunned with the beautiful view of the sun set and sunrise. Or stay in a charming and historical setting that is ideal for those who want to just relax and watch the sun set into the water.

Happy Birthday!

You are like a star, I can see you but I can not touch you.
I wish you are no longer a star and just be my pillow, so I can always hold you close at night.
I love you!
Happy Birthday!
