Numb and Indifferent

"You're acting like you're not my sister."

Have you ever been told something like this by your sibling? I have. Just yesterday - and it feels like nothing.

A few months back I would have shed a lot of tears thinking that I'm actually eating a decent dinner while my brother was stuck in Iligan, amidst the rebels and their guns. A few more months back, I would have been stressed out because he just got held up by armed men and I was in my room, safe and sound. A few months back, I would have pleaded with him, crying with my heart, for him to please stop all his nonsense and start living a better life.

My brother is actually not stupid by definition. In fact, he has quite an intellectual head on his shoulders. He was almost always an achiever in elementary school; we just couldn't figure out why it all changed.

Now it just pains me to think and see how he's wasting everything, all the sacrifices my parents are going through, his time and his life. He actuall…

Gold is Always Shiny

Image
I don't know if you have tried it, but a lot of people say it's a good thing.


Gold seems to be a one of the most coveted investment tools nowdays and a lot have been thinking about starting an investment portfolio including gold coins and bullions. Since gold doesn't seem to have fluctuating prices, gold is one of the "safest" investments you can go to given you have enough information and are guided by superb advisors and co-investors.

Like, have you tried pawning your gold rings? I have tried it, and so far I haven't had any experience with the rate going down, the pawn value of gold always goes up which means that investing in gold is quite a wise thing to do. So how about it? Want gold coins?



Or try these for size...

Need Farmville Help?

Image
UPDATE:
Just in! The latest version of Farmville Magic Tools (v1.4) can now be downloaded HERE.


A lot of us, and I do emphasize the words A LOT, play farmville in facebook and somehow we always try to find ways on how to level up easier and faster.

Aside from the already published hacks and tricks and cheats, like using cheat engine and trying to understand gibberish on how to tweak your browser codes just to make harvesting easier, there are still those good souls who chose to develop applications or bots which are more easy to use and won't cost you anything.

Just like what I'm using now - Farmville Magic Tool. Sorry I just forgot where I downloaded it from, but to make all your lives easier, I've uploaded my copy so you can use it too. It's a .zip file so you have to extract it first.


You can click on the image to enlarge it or just adjust your vision to finish reading my post... *giggles*

Farmville Magic Tools has an actual tab for instructions, and bot where you clic…

Martial Law Madness!

Image
3 Days and counting. Too much buzz over that famous Martial law declaration in Maguindanao. I'm getting bored with it already. What's new? They called in a recess - they're not having a session today. Sige go. Matapos n'yo kaya yan or mauuna yung 60 days? Hay nako... [Go ahead. Will you finish that or the 60-day implementation time frame with end first? *Sigh*]

Note: Bear with me on the translations. lol!

Anyway. I just happened to see this floating around in my tweetdeck thingy through @kingdelrosario, my high school friend I referred to in this post, and it said,
"Twit tweets from Professional Heckler. Funny. http://bit.ly/8rLh6J"...
 And as curious as my braincells can go, I immediately clicked on the link and this is what came out.







Okay, I'd have to re-direct you to his page, 'coz I don't want to be cited for stealing content via copy-paste!

Did you enjoy it? It was really amusing and fascinating how he could have thought about that kind of thin…

Ain't that cool?

My Bilivery.com post has now risen to technically the 4th entry in the google search results, after only two links from the site itself and sunstar's post. But still!

Yey! Yey! Yey!

I'm happy. Live with it.

Getting Married? Where's the RING?

Image
One of Tom's (and now mine too) close family friends is getting married this December 17. Good for them I should say. So far I believe all the preparations have gone good and we have even received their very classy chocolate brown invitation, which was very nice.


This gets me to think and now makes me itching to ask some of my "older" friends when the heck their getting hitched. It's not like I'm hurrying them up or something, but they really should think about it soon enough. And one thing they should prepare for are the rings, don't you agree?


First, there's the engagement ring. Mine was not so surprising. Tom and I were together when he got it. I even chose the design. Anyway.


Then there's the wedding ring or band itself. Hmm. What design would you like? Or your soon-to-be-bride? Has it occurred to you that maybe your tastes are not that similar? How about the material? Will you settle for just white gold, or yellow gold? How about platinum? titanium?…

Are you an Internal Auditor?

If you are an Internal Auditor here in the Philippines, whether you currently are, or previously was, you are invited to join this group in Facebook:


Internal Auditors in the Philippines.



Don't worry, it's not something you will regret in the nearest future.

PGMA's Report on Martial Law

As we all know by now, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has declared Martial Law on the province of Maguindanao while we all are hoping that her father's soul, former President Diosdado Macapagal, is not turning on his grave nor wishing to be dead once again.

Straight from Inquirer.net is the full text of PGMA's report on the declaration of Martial Law, sent thru her secretary Eduardo Ermita - same as what she did on the proclamation, she sent Ermita to do the dirty work, so it will not be herself on the history books nor on the file videos of new networks. Duh.

To download or see the said report, click on this link. LINK.
(Too literal, huh? lol!)

Anyway, on other issues aside from Martial Law, the government has issued some guidelines on the implementation or enforcement of the said thing, as can be seen here, and Manuel Quezon III said they may have just taken those from old files way back 1972. So resourceful, don't you think?

Just for fun, here are the videos of both …

Anthrax in Isabela!!!

Wait!!! Everybody's too busy with Martial Law, they didn't even notice that

Anthrax is in the country!!!

On the Martial Law in Maguindanao

Image
Because we haven't watched the news and I haven't seen the papers lately, I did not know that Martial Law was at last declared in Maguindanao.


And the current buzz in the world wide web right now is this: announcement to the whole world that the President just declared martial law in one of the provinces of the whole country, and that before, there was this statement of "Never again Martial Law", some tweets ask if it's lawful, some say that it's not because of this and that... here's a snapshot of the current twitter trend (click on the image to enlarge):




Atty. Marvic Leonen, Dean of UP Law, has published his statement already, see it here.
Senator Francis Pangilinan has also blogged about it here, saying (quoting directly from his post)

"Under Section 18 Article VII, Martial Law can only be declared if there is an invasion or rebellion. Neither is existing in the case of the Maguindanao massacre. The massacre is neither a rebellion nor an invasion but …

Friendster Revamped - Facebook Clone?

Image
Have you visited your Friendster account lately?

Friendster now has a new homepage! It basically looks more funky with all the graphics and stuff, and GREEN-er... It also changed it's logo into something more creative and new, still with the smiley though; and the favicon? New too! Correct. It's green.

New features have also been added, like a virtual wallet, where you get virtual money to use in its virtual giftshop. They now also have a lot of games - even farming ones like farmtown and farmville - and in interactive shoutout stream, which looks more and more like the Facebook wall! New and improved photo uploading and viewing, and of course, a faster and better way to share your photos.

Sound like a clone yet? For your curiosity's sake, if you haven't logged into your Friendster.com account, here's how it looks like when you click on the HOME tab.

Apparently, it's not only Gibo's survey numbers that went up - so did the number of my blog's subscribers! Yipee!!!

The post was about Gibo being here in Cebu City to attend the Vice Mayor's league of the Philippines' fellowship night. Guess a lot of people are following Gibo Teodoro's whereabouts. So to not keep you waiting,


Gibo is still in Cebu City making his rounds, he's visiting Cebu Institute of Technology and the University of the Visayas.

A BLESSED Morning, thanks Sponsoredreviews.com!

Image
It's really nice to start your day looking at a very lovely email that says, I've been paid! harhar!



That's not so passive of an income, but didn't take much time, but murdered a handful of braincells though. But at least, it really made me happy. Especially upon seeing this:




Heaven. or at least the tip of it.. This isn't such a big sum yet, but with more entries... Well, Sponsored Reviews is such an angel. Got all of that from just 2 posts in two weeks. Nice, huh?

Why don't you join too? Or even ask for a review from me? Hehe.

The Real Britney Voice

Do you really wanna know how Britney Spears sounds in real life, during her concerts when she thinks her mike is muted, and she's thinking that she's just lip synching? (If this is a word...)

Here it is. Sorry if you actually bought an original britney spears album.

Robert Kiyosaki's Cashflow 101, 102

Image
Tom and I have been spending a rather sizable chunk of our free time playing Cashflow 202. We have both Cashflow 101 and 202, but I'm speaking for the both of us when I say I like 202 better. It's more "challenging".

You can see Tom's evident like of the game since he refers to commonplace expenses such as taxi fare, green mangoes, movies, and even an ice cream stick as "Doodads".

Anyway, did you know that there's also a website called Rich Woman? It's more tailored for women and our needs. To visit the site, go to www.richwoman.com.

No Need to Resign

Image
Alliances are strong, huh?


It says in this news bit that the SC justices in an en banc session today with an 8-6 vote said that encumbent government officials need not resign from their posts upon filing of COCs (Certificate of Candidacy) for next year's election.



I never really understood why they needed to resign in the first place. At least this goes with the earlier ruling that actors and actresses filing their COCs need not stop their projects since it's their profession. Hmm. Consistent? Or scheming?

:)

Wishful Thinking

Food is a Basic Need

If you're a new-hire, haven't received any pay yet and all employees are privileged to have free lunch, will it not bother you that you're ID (used to certify that you can avail of the free lunch) is NOT working at all?!
