TRANSLATIA: Knowing Languages Makes Money

Image
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? And it's an opportunity not only to make money, but to connect to other people around the globe too!

Translatia grows the largest network of translators in the world where clients get their contents translated from or to any major languages. All jobs are done by the translators who possess the necessary subject expertise, from business, finance to electronics and mechanics. Plus, they ensure 100% customer satisfaction since you will not be asked to pay if you're not satisfied at all with the translation done.

In Translatia, you can get your online translation to or from major languages around the world done by the top-notch professionals at very very affordable price…

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 majo…

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!

Image
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,

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 tak…

Unauthorized Office Entry

Image
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.

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

Image
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…

Mariah Carey - A Big Girl Now

Image
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

Image
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 acco…

Dakota Fanning Being Normal

Image
"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!
