Many of my friends in Facebook come from different countries and a lot of their posts are done in their native language. I also see some advertisements for the online translation for their websites, blog posts, homework, and everything else. But did you know that there's already a group for these kind of needs?

Never Gonna Be Alone

If ever.... I was forced to redo my whole wedding... (I used the word forced, because by choice, I wouldn't redo anything!)... I'd make sure that it was nicer for my family, and Tom's too. I wouldn't let anything, I mean not a single thing, get between myself and my family enjoying and imprinting this memory on our curly brains. Why would I say that?

Because... there were just too many nuisances during my wedding day! One thing is that mom and dad were just not acting normal. Mom was too silent, too zombie-ish. Dad was like, "Is Gov ok? Is Cong ok?".. Grrrhh. {Sorry, but it did get into my nerve later that day...You know what happened.} And as I see it, making himself too busy to notice the feeling of losing her daughter to his now son-in-law. Hmmm. It was also not so memorable for Tom's parents, except for the fact that they were too busy directing car pool and directing the crazy waiters where to bring the food. yes, the waiters were almost useless majority of the time.

But then again... Everything was really very good. I think all of those were already planned and there reallyw as nothing we could've done to prevent them.

Anyway, if we were even allowed to do a wedding dance, I would have chosen Butterfly Kisses for my Dad and I... or maybe this:



or this:

Nickelback's Never Gonna be Alone...  If it can be slow-danced to, you know. Harhar.

Long-Time Offline

If I'm offline for more than 8 hours, that may mean two things: I don't have internet access or I'm oversleeping.

Ooooh! A Surprise Comment!

It felt a bit amusing to be surprised by a "surprise" comment on one of my posts. I was just editing some posts  to have updates included in them and tweeting them out when I noticed a link to a new comment, and viola! It was actually an unsolicited "comment" which was, in reality, a cry for help in spreading the word about their advocacy, that is, the Philippine Climate Adaptability Challenge.


So here's what exactly was written:

Hi,

This is Gladys AraƱez and I’m one of the volunteers for Design Against The Elements. We are asking for your support to please help us spread our message in raising awareness re: Philippine Climate Adaptability Challenge. Please take time to visit the links below and please post comments and ratings. Below also is a message from our Executive Director, Illac Diaz.

Feel free to ask questions. You can reach me on my email: gladys_79@yahoo.com

Many, many thanks! :)

Climate change is real. Addressing climate change requires a mix of mitigation and adaptation. This requires more mitigation for industrialized countries and more adaptation for developing countries.
 

This can be translated into one simple scenario : While the industrialized world continues to send up tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, whether or not we blur the amounts through carbon credits, hopes are fading for those who will be receiving the sharp end of the Damocles sword; the developing world. The urgency is to realize that this is not going to stop at 350 ppm, or even double at 600 ppm, the Philippines has to realize that despite all the petitions and feel good campaigns of dreams for a climate stabilized world, real solutions need to be done. We have to get to the part where we learnto start dealing with this. The country is located right beside the warmest parts of the ocean that is in the perfect storm of vulnerable coastlines, intense winds, and an observation of growing dumping of large amounts of rain. 

We need to live in a world where climate will hit the poorest of the poor first, regardless of where they live, it will test our resiliency as a city, as a village, as a community, and specially as a people. This song is dedicated to the awareness that dealing with one ONDOY is not the victory, but a climate of change will be the battle of this generation.

She even included a link to the music video which, I think, sounded good.  :)

Have Fun this Christmas!

37 more days to go, and it's Christmas. I really don't want to think that I will be breaking a Christmas family tradition by not going home to my parents' house, but Tom and I really have to think about it sooner or later. Hmm, and this includes the finances... eeek!

This going home thing has been a yearly tradition particularly since I went off to other places to study, like Davao City for high school and Cebu City for college - so Christmas was something to look forward to.

For example, I'm always tasked to buy those round fruits - 13 of them if possible - but most of the time I just manage to bring 3 or 4 kinds, but mom doesn't seem to give too much attention to which ones. Personally I prefer bringing grapes since I can get one or two pieces every now and then. hehe.

Aside from the fruits and shirts and whatnots that I bring home, I also look forward to what activities are in store for everyone. Usually the cousins and myself go to Tita Ruby's house and take turns playing games or PSP. Sometimes I just prefer to be the nuisance since I'm the eldest. I love annoying other cousins 'til they cry. So bad, right?

Anyway, there were also times when the whole family stayed up late just talking in groups around one big dinner table, sometimes they take out the videoke thing and all those gifted with non-irking voices sing their hearts out, sometimes we play parlor games, like last Christmas when they even did Maria Went to Town. There were also times when group games like charades, scrabble, chikicha, tong-its and bingo were lined up. But this time... Hmm... Since there's a possibility that I won't be there physically... How about online games?
Online poker or online bingo? Anyone?  :)

Unauthorized Office Entry

Once again, someone tried...

And this time, failed.

*smirk* Good thing I withdrew all our keys from the Security office, or else, our very trusty Security people would have gladly opened the doors to our somewhat restricted office to anyone who bids them a soft-voiced anonymous plea to "Sir, would you please open the CIAD office?" at 7am in the morning.

Blech. Darn Security people are getting rusty.


ps. CIAD reads Corporate Internal Audit Department.


~o0o~
Interested on applying? You might be able to access even our main server by asking for Security's assistance.  *wink*

First Online MALL in Cebu City - BILIVERY.COM

UPDATED:
I stand, mean post, corrected by the proponents themselves. BILIVERY.com is not just an online grocery store, it's gonna be a whole MALL. And by the word "mall" they really mean MALL - with music stores, hardware stuff, clothes, gadgets, appliances, pharmacy, bookstore, etc, etc, etc.! Got it?


~

Wondering what's a unique gift to give this Christmas? {Everyone's problem!}
How about, a unique way to give a common gift? Sounds better?

First in Cebu City, a fully online grocery store that will deliver your purchased items right into your doorstep! (Or the doorstep of your family, friends, loved ones, or complete strangers for the Christmas spirit.)

Bilivery.com first and foremost caters to the busy working moms who would conveniently and readily choose to have their groceries delivered than fight with the grueling traffic of day-to-day commute, especially at times when almost all of the working population is on the road.

Using Bilivery.com is so easy - with a site that's very user friendly:

Register for an account to start using the services of bilivery.com, click on the LOGIN link at the upper right hand part of the window/site and this will appear: (click on images to enlarge)


Mariah Carey - A Big Girl Now

Yes, ladies, she's a big girl now. She usually looks so fit and toned, is this part of a role? or is she letting go now?

Facebook Maintenance Conspiracy Theory

It's been day 2, I think, of this erratic activity from Facebook -

"Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience."


Can it be?

This thought has just been a few seconds old as I'm typing this, and I'm still continuing to develop the theory, or at least the base of it...

It's really quite possible that Facebook wants to get its actual, or at least the near-the-truth actual figure of really how many users are registered and active in their use of Facebook. Sounds logical?

There has been an article already published here and another stat page from Facebook itself, trying to analyze the site traffic, usage clicks, status updates and whatnots - sorry I didn't read everything... But what if the developers of Facebook just want to update their stats while "offline" and actively determine how many of these users are quite dependent on their facebook accounts? For business communication, family affairs, keeping touch with friends or just spying on ex-boyfriends. What if they just want to know how many of these facebook fanatics and addicts will try with all their might to directly contact facebook people and complain about the extended "site maintenance"?

Hmmm? How about that? What do you think?

Dakota Fanning Being Normal

"This may hurt just a little."


Yet the New Moon star knows just how to be normal. (Is it normal to be a member of the cheerleading squad?)

 

 


She was even elected as one of the Princesses of the Homecoming Court. How cute.  :)


Anyway, off to a meeting I go... lol!
