He proposed to me few weeks after that April Fool's, but I was so young then, just graduated and qualified as RN so didn't know how to handle his proposal so I turned it down, but he has persevered, like asking me he can wed me anywhere, and if I'm in doubt, I can cut open his heart, and even bended on his knees. No effect to me until one day, inuwi ba naman ako sa kanila, di ko alam, tanan na pala yun.......Alam nyo, for two weeks, di talaga ako lumalabas ng kwarto, just imagine, ano na lang sasabihin ng mga tao sa akin, all those sort of thoughts. So ashamed of myself, so confused, Being a Bisaya, di ba, our dignity is so precious, di ba?
I always knew he is the one from that April Fool's day because I have seen him how sticks to his routine, principles, and words. I saw him in his real colour without any masks or make up to impress me, he just came as he is.
I am now going to tag PinayMama, Mira's A Moment to Exhale, Asawa's Heaven, Joy Burlinson

When you created your blogs, what was your goal? Can you tell me of the great reasons why you are blogging?
Well, for me, I have plenty of ideas and thoughts that I needed to bring out. Perhaps, it's just honest fact to say that I am a frustrated writer. I used to join essay writing contests at school, and I am more expressive if I write things down, than saying it. If I can turn back time, and my personal circumstances then is different, and money is not a problem, I probably have taken a course and pursued a career in writing. My parents kept telling me when I was younger, a writing career is difficult, you can't even earn a living from it, unless you are super bright and famous, and be able to sell lots of your articles, otherwise, you'll just one of those lonely ones. I suppose, they are just concerned of my future.
Anyway, I grew up, had a family, and didn't regret what direction I followed, but the love of writing is still here, deep in my heart. That's where Blogging became very very alive in front of me. I can express my thoughts, I can scream, I can cry, I can emote, I can be sentimental, I can laugh, I can be angry, I can be nobody, I can be somebody, I can be anyone, a person, a thing, a poem, a song.... in fact anything! And yet I can make sure that I exist through the posts, articles, and prints.... that's the power of publishing. And what do I get here????? like a computer, sometimes you get filled up with information therefore you wanted to store these information in your memory, but as a human being, our brains do deteriorate as we grow old, and eventually we will lose our memory. Such a shame that it happens, unlike computers, when its memory fills up, it can have added storage. So what was I exactly pointing out in here????? Have you ever thought of what your next generation will learn about you? This is the very reason why I am Blogging. I want to write about real things and happenings in my life and family, my work, my affairs, in fact anything that I feel worth writing about. So when my descendants will ask about me, they can just log on the Internet and find out for themselves, first hand information, and not being relayed by anybody else where things added on or taken away.
Another reason why I am blogging is, the beauty of being in a social network. I have expanded my "personal universe" a lot since joining SocialSpark , I made several friends and actually socialize with them virtually by sending and receiving messages. Not only being nosy by reading and hopping by their blogs, I have learned plenty of tips on how they live their lives, ran their families, spend their money, enjoy their time, express their humour, and so much more. The list is endless.
And with all these reasons, I can get paid if I want to. Now tell me, who says that being a writer is a sad, penniless, loner? In SocialSpark , I get to write on things around our lives (they call this opportunities). Advertisers put up opportunities with price on them, and if you take that opportunity, you just need to write about it and publish it in your blog, and boil'ah! you get paid!!!! And because it is a social network, articles written are 100% real opinions where blogger talk about how they feel about it, 100% Transparent which means no hidden agenda, 100% auditable In Post disclosure which blogger disclose their interests such as if are they talking about a paid or sponsored post, and the best thing is it is 100% search engine friendly.

Just before bedtime, I got my foot spa kit out and gave my two kids and husband a good treat each, plus a much needed soothing massage. Ahhhh, joy! I ended up with worn out hands and arms, but seeing them relax and enjoy is a perfect sight.
And guess what? Today, I was on a late shift at work, from 13:30 to 20:00 PM, and soon as I got home, my boy asked me......Mum, are you gonna give us a massage? (Me): What??? Yeah I will, for fifty quit, have you? He just laughed.
One of Social Sparks' features is creating a relationship between advertisers and bloggers, for which both benefits evenly. For example, I, for one, a blogger, can take on opportunities and blog about it, and I get paid for it... isn't it great? And for the advertisers' part, they are able to reach readers and let them know what they can offer. Either way, there's great chance of creating a very good media.
This is a sponsored review.

I became a mom at a young age of twenty two, but it didn't hinder me to become a better, responsible, cautious, and meticulous mother. And over ten years now, I still am learning. I read books about children's and family health, be vigilant about any problems, such as infections and diseases. We do not have to be ill to see our doctors. Regular health check ups and screenings are as important as anything else. I was just watching this video Dr. Paul Offit from Youtube and I could not fault any of his words.
I am aware, being a nurse working in the Intensive Care, that research and developments on health practices are done and published frequently, therefore, the information we need are so accessible nowadays. Yet, I am also aware, that there are still health myths existing around. We need to educate ourselves and be open to change, especially if it is scientifically proven.

Then someone encouraged me to join Pay Per Post to monetize my blog. At first, I was skeptical. Who on earth would waste their money because I was doing what I enjoy? Who would care about it? Then she explained to me how it works, etc. etc. etc. I thought, uhmmm, if I give it a try, I will lose nothing... so I did, and today, I got an email saying my very own Observer's Eyes is now approved, and I can start looking at paid oppurtunities and can write about them,.... that easy! And guess what, just by writing this alone, I got $20.00!!!! Honestly, I can't stop thinking what this blogworld can take me to, and the extra money, just imagine, I AM GETTING PAID just because I am doing what I love to do. What could be better than that????? Join Now!

Every detail of the film is well thought, colours, and lighting well balanced. I could not find any fault and although rated 12A, I have no qualms in recommending it to kids over seven years old, whose age are into adventure. Well, it's not up to me to say this, but truly, films like these are worth checking out. In fact, though we've watched it in the big screen, I will get a DVD copy of it for my collections' sake. Happy viewing.

Although not in anyway related to him or personally knew him, I can say that he is in fact part of "myself" being a Filipino. I would like to send my sincerest sympathy to all whom he left behind.

Then to James' site, hmmm, not much. He's a boy and typical seven, into his nintendo DS and some weird toys such as the monster egg which he kept in an eggshaped container filled with water. It looked like an ordinary egg inside for the first three days, then I saw it cracked a little, and finally, it turned into a monster.
Well, at least it is still contained in that eggshape home. Mind you, he's never told anyone about this aside from his partner in crime, sister Jessica, and they both hid this in our wardrobe, so that just before they go to bed, I could hear them fussing about something in our bedroom, so I went to check out, and they just told me they're looking after their pet and it should be in the dark. Okey.....
And triops, and little stuff toys, which at first, I thought are a bit softee and costs more than what you'd get, then I realized there's more to them. Lately, he told me that those toys have got access codes to online games.
And the worst bit of it all is..... shame on me, he got a link of the High School Musical 2 from youtube. I could not believe this. I started blogging around a month ago, and I do not know how to copy and post tags, let alone a video from youtube.....and he could???? What on earth is going on? I am supposed to tell them or teach them "how to" these things, but I guess, I have to ask my son to teach me it this time. I am sure, I could still catch up on how this techie bit work..... Well, hopefully.

We are finally moving in. Yes, we have waited this long, and finally, the new build is through, and we can finally move to the new state of the art, very modern, and sophisticated Garrett Anderson Center, and yes, I am one of the staff who will move. The intensive care unit is just so "WOW", high technology, and most of the nearby hospitals of the county are eager to see it as well. Oh, I just can't wait.... It will be this Tuesday, 10th June 2008... See you there.
