Happy Birthday Crissy!!! myspace graphic comments

Dinner for the day..

My special gift from hubby.. Thanks so much & I LOVE YOUUUU!!!

Crissy is now 35 years old. It was June 27 of 1973 when a baby girl was born around noon time in a public hospital. Now, a wife and a mother to 2 kids, I wish myself good health and long life and more tasks to come, hehehe.

Just want to thank my husband for always being there for me. For loving and taking care of me and for the understanding he showers me every time I have tantrums, LOL. To my 2 kids for the love and affection and for completing my being as a woman. To both Choco & Taruc families, relatives, friends offline and online.

On this special day of mine, I want to thank GOD for this great and wonderful life he gave me. For everything that he showered me in the past 35 years of my life.

Feast of Saint John the Baptist

Every 24th of June, areas in the Philippines that have St. John the Baptist as patron saint celebrate his feast day with the traditional “basaan” or “buhusan” (dousing of water).

Anyone who goes to the town of San Juan, Metro Manila on the morning of June 24 cannot stay dry. Neither will anyone who visits small towns near a stream, a river, or the sea before noon. The experience is supposed to remind of one's baptism.

Small children use a tabo, usually an empty can used as a water dipper, to douse strangers with water. Older persons my fill their ancient coconut shells with perfumed water to sprinkle on passersby. Others get their bamboo cylinders fitted with pistons to squirt water on whoever passes by. Still others use water pistols.

Unfortunately, the tradition is being threatened by killjoys or local bullies who douse car owners or jeepney riders with water from open ditches. Their actions have made others question the very idea of the festivity.

Empanada Festival of Batac, Ilocos Norte

I saw on the news about the Empanada Festival. The first year anniversary celebration of 1st Batac Charter Day since it became a city. I never try yet Empanada made from Ilocos but it looks yummy in the TV. For more details about the said festival and its whole day activities check out Ilocandia Treasures where I got the above pictures.

"Harapan" with Ted & Korina

The unbeatable tandem of Ted Failon and Korina Sanchez returns to the small screen as the veteran journalists anchor the newest weekly late night talk show, "Harapan."

The show will separate truth from spin, give viewers a sharper take on the news, and put public officials on record.

Failon and Sanchez bring to late night their firebrand quality of talk, which their highest-rating morning radio program "Tambalang Failon at Sanchez" on DZMM is known for. More..

While blogging, I am watching the new TV show of Ted and Korina’s HARAPAN. I liked the tandem in their radio program “Tambalang Failon at Sanchez”. The pioneer issues tackled were about the recent MV Princess of the Stars tragedy where hundreds were feared dead and the street crimes wherein households were being attacked by criminals.

I do can attest to that. There was a time (recently) that I caught somebody trespassed in our property at around 1am while I am blogging. I heard a sound of slippers that dropped in the floor. Curious about it I turned on one of the lights in the garage but the person didn’t care to run not until I opened the screen door.

Reports said that these doings are being done even in broad day light so friends be careful and be alert all the time anywhere.

Filipino-Australian jailed for embezzling A$1.7M

It was on the news that certain Welda Bacolod, 42 years old and a mother of four, is now languishing at the Emu Plains Correctional Centre after District Court Judge Peter Berman found her guilty of embezzling $1.7 million Australian dollars (about 70 million pesos) from the Swiss Hotel. She’s been sentenced to a non-parole period of three years with a head sentence of five years.

Welda as an employee of the sales department in Swiss Hotel was entitled to staff discounts on guest rooms, food and services. She was famous among Filipinos in Australia as they would approach her every time they have business with the hotel. Those Filipinos who sought after her assistance paid directly to her in cash, sometimes the money was deposited in her bank account, but no official receipts have been issued in any occasion. Trusting Welda those Filipinos thought the payments made by them, net of discount from her, were not amiss not until they received a call from the auditor of Swiss Hotel regarding their dealings with Welda.

Reports said that Welda used the money to buy properties like her palatial house in Muabual, Cebu but relatives of her denied all the accusations and stated that she had plenty of debts to deal with.

Buy Viagra online

One sexual dysfunction attributed to men is what we call male impotence or erectile dysfunction. They say that causes of such dysfunction maybe physiological or psychological. On the other hand, such dysfunction may affects relationships for certain partners aside of course for psychological effects suffered by the person concerned. It has been said that this dysfunction will occur or maybe experience such recurring impotence problems by men at some point in their lives. Remedies on this have long been advocated and caused a wave of public attention, boosted in part by heavy advertising.

Sildenafil Citrate is the wonder drug content which is commonly used to treat male impotence or erectile dysfunction. This is the same content used in those branded and generic drugs like Viagra. In this point of view, of course there is a disparity as to pricing between branded and generic but not in the quality or content. A reality you may also find when you buy your medication for flu or cough. So for men out there who may suffer in such dysfunction worry no more. You may still recover your virility and manhood with Viagra. It is a drug scientifically proven to treat safely your dysfunction. Aside from land-based store, you can purchase this one online like in

With the presence of some lightning, the computer tripped/restarted about 3 times that made me decided to turn it off permanently. I still have tasks to finish but no choice because that might cause the computer to break down.

I went to bed before 5am and slept right away. At around 7am my daughter told me that we had a brownout. So I and the kids just stayed lying on bed talking while waiting for electricity to come back. Noon time just passed and still no power kids are already eager to watch TV. The power just came back before 7pm while I was preparing our dinner. I though we might have a candle light dinner, hehehe. Right after dinner, I came back blogging to finish the tasks.

DWIZ-AM 882khz & DWQZ-FM 97.9 Home Radio

In my post about Frank, Hubby is in Cebu to transfer their radio station from the 10th/F down to the 3rd/F. Being the Head of the Engineering Department, he must ensure that the transfer on the technical aspect will be in order and trouble-free.

I worked in the same company too until we decided for me to resign on 2001. I’m the Network Traffic, Billing & Collection Supervisor in the Finance Department. Working in a radio station I could say has no dull moment and monotonous days at work.

The radio company I am talking about is Aliw Broadcasting Corporation. It has several provincial radio stations and 2 Manila stations: DWIZ-AM 882khz and DWQZ-FM 97.9 Home Radio. The Cebu station where Hubby was right now is just one among those 7 stations he occasionally visits for troube shooting, construction, etc.

Blog marketing is one of the ways where bloggers can earn money online. Likewise, a perfect venue for advertisers to generate buzz for their products, services, press releases, promos, etc. etc. When I got my PR3 last May I am very excited to sign up with those paid blogging sites to monetize mine. Fortunately, most of them approved my blog except for those wanting that you own the domain.

Snapbomb is one among those who gave me instant tasks upon my blog approval. They have their own way to determine the value of your blog through their automated valuation system. In addition, their matching system will give you opportunities that fit the content or theme of your blog. In your account, you will find “non-matched opportunities” that may not suits your blog content but they are allowing you to make a review on that to get Feedback Ratings and who knows if the advertisers like it you might get paid with it. Blog advertising is a powerful way advertisers to get buzz and for bloggers to earn. In that regard, quality review must be taken into consideration for a mutual beneficial relationship.
