A Good Investment

It’s good to invest while you are young. Different kinds of investments are available such as stock markets, mutual funds, banks and properties. Examples of properties that can be a good source of investment are lands, antiques, jewelleries and many more, because the market value of these properties becomes higher. While young, try to buy properties that will benefit you in the future. For many women, the easiest way of investing is buying jewelleries like ring, necklace, earring, anklets and faberge jewellery. Well, I think I have to ask my mom to collect jewelleries and sell them after five, ten or twenty years haha! 

Holiday Sale

Holidays are near so we must be ready for shopping because malls usually offer holiday sale during this season. Last year, I shopped to buy things for Christmas like gifts, foods and clothes. In our country, employees receive 13th month pay and other companies give bonuses so people are rich during Holidays. Malls take advantage to that so they offer discounted items starting from personal to household. Last year I also saw Christmas tree, lights, decors and faberge for sale. Faberge eggs became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s. That time, only famous and powerful people in Russia and Europe owned Faberge eggs; Queen Elizabeth I was one of them. Well, it’s nice to see faberge for sale especially in Holiday season.

Thinking of Gifts

Thinking of a gift to give to my loved ones in every occasion is pressuring me. For example, every Christmas, I have to think of a gift not similar with my gift last year. To think that I have numerous godchildren and relatives, giving them joy is my primary goal but it’s a little bit hard hehe. There times when I give them money as a gift; my older relatives like that but children don’t. As a result, I prepare a list of gifts every year, I will archive them (create a separate folder on my email perhaps) and then compare the list for this year to the last year. There, I think it will be convenient now to buy gifts this coming Christmas.   

Our Gift to Grandma

We celebrated grandma’s 82nd birthday last Monday. That day was really special to her because her grandchildren were complete and it was like a big family reunion aside from Christmas or New Year family gatherings. My grandma has eight children and my dad is the eldest so the gift from him must be special hahaha! My sister and I thought to give grandma a chocolate cake with two sets of number 82-shaped candles colored blue and red (two sets). Father’s other siblings also gave grandma some presents like ice cream, clothes, money, special bread and more. However, for grandma, her children and grandchildren’s presence is the most important gift on her birthday.

Are There No “Real” Dating Sites Left?

My friend is single and he does want to have a girlfriend; he told me that he finds his life is boring. He used to have several girlfriends before but the relationships ended sadly. There are actually a lot of ways to find a girlfriend nowadays but you have to remember that you have to know the girl very well. You should find some ways on how to know them better so that everything will work fine when you already have a girlfriend.

Many say that online courtship is a better way to know a girl. With online courtship or dating, you can choose a girl that is perfect for you. They say that there is no “real” dating site left but I say that there are. I think those people who say that there’s no real dating sites have a bad or unfavourable experience with dating sites. I recommend them free dating sites to choose the right person for them. There are dating sites for free available online so what are you waiting for? Find your perfect match.

Buying a Second Hand Computer

My cousin told me that he wants to buy a second hand desktop computer but he doesn’t know where to buy to. I suggested him to check the online classified listings as well as in the newspapers. When just had my old laptop, I also had planned to buy a second hand desktop computer but my sister told me that it is not practical. Buying a new one can give me convenience and enjoyable times. But it is still your option to buy a second hand one because it’s much cheaper than the brand new one. 

Since I love gadgets, I want to have my own gadget shop in the future so that my cousin will not find gadget vendors other than me LOL. If you will like to advertise your own business, (either product or service) you can visit free online ads. They offer advertising your business for free. Yes! That is free of charge! Lucky me because I’ve found this site, I will not have any problem in the future when I have my business.

Being a Dentist is Noble

Dentists are people who are born with courageous character. Being a dentist is not a joke especially when you deal with patients with dental phobia. Dentists are people who help to build community and country. We need them in order to maintain oral cleanliness and hygiene which is important in our everyday interaction with people.

I have a high school classmate who is now a Dentist. He and his wife run a dental clinic in our hometown. I once visited their dental clinic and I witnessed their being nice and caring to their patients. I guess they are like the Dentists Olympia in terms of dedication and hardwork. Dentists Olympia are professionals that you would love to visit when you have a dental problem. They are indeed so nice and friendly; you will forget your dental fear when you go to their clinic for some dental treatment.

Great Telecom Experience with NET10

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the existence of many Telecom service offers for unlimited service, it is hard to determine which one to choose. With their great offers, many are deceived by flowery words. Be aware of the hidden charges and make sure that the option that you choose can give you better service like what NET10 promises.

See the Light

What can your $50.00 give you with Net10 Unlimited plan in a month?

·         With Net10 unlimited you can get nationwide coverage and unlimited talk, text and data. This is relatively cheaper than other networks.

When I apply for a loan and the like, a credit check always follow. What about with Net 10?

·         No, there’s no credit check when you apply for Net10 unlimited plan. Furthermore, you will not be bound with a contract and no surprise bills.

Other networks have reception and connectivity problems but still charge me the same amount every month, what can Net10 Unlimited plan promise me about that?

·         Net10 Unlimited plan promises that your $50.00 will be meaningful in the sense that we give you great nationwide coverage and excellent reception and connectivity. Sometimes, even if the signal is strong, the problem is with the phone itself. That’s why; Net10 chooses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.  You can check their website ( for Cute NET10 commercial and for more information.

In addition, Net10 is excellent not only in your everyday life but also to your business.

What Rob has to say?

Net10 offers different plans like the Easy Minutes plan and Pay-As-You-Go plan:

·         The Easy Minutes plan- this is an automatic minutes plan that starts at $15.00 for 200 minutes.

·         The Pay-As-You-Go plan- this is a plan where your minutes carry over with active service.  

The good thing with these plans is, you can switch between them each month if you have limited budget. Therefore, the plans follow your budget and airtime needs. Most of all switching between plans will not charge you any amount.

Diamonds are Forever

Diamond is one of the hardest minerals exists on the face of the Earth. There is a saying that “Only a diamond can cut a diamond” and I believe in that. Do you know that diamond comes from a mineral called “carbon”? Carbon is present in charcoal compressed by time (for million years) and heat and form a diamond. I sometimes tell my girlfriend that I can give our children legacy diamonds by giving them a sack of charcoal but they have to wait for million years so that they can get the diamond LOL. Well, that’s only a joke and I don’t want to wait for million years because I may surely be a just fossil when that time comes. Diamonds can be a design not only for jewelleries but also in clothes (but not real diamond), crowns and ornaments like in Faberge eggs. Whoa I suddenly remember my mom because she likes to buy faberge with diamond design. She said that she wants to display it in our living room so guys I’ll go to my mother now and tell her the Faberge egg that I saw on the web earlier. Bye guys! 

House Ornaments

My mom likes buying house ornaments. When it comes to house things, she is quite meticulous so the ornaments should have high quality and standard. What do I mean by ornaments with high quality and standard? Well, she likes expensive antique jars, dining table made of narra wood, elegant looking living room cabinets and beautiful artificial plants and flowers. She also plans to buy either cuckoo or small grandfather’s clock or she wants maple ones to complement the colour of our wall which is yellow. Yesterday, while I was browsing the web, I have noticed elegant egg faberge available in the market for a very reasonable price. Yay I’m excited to recommend it to her. I’m sure she will be happy when I say that. I know that collecting beautiful things is her joy so I support her haha! My sister and I give her the things that make her happy. Truly, we have to give our parents their wants and their joys as long as they are alive and here. 

The Queen Mother

Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon or popularly known as the “Queen Mother” was the mother of Queen Elizabeth of Britain. When I watched the movie “The King’s Speech”, Helena Bonham Carter (my favourite British actress) played as the queen mother. Positively, she had given justice to the role as a patient, gentle, and loving wife and mother.

 The Queen Mother lived her life to the fullest. Many people in England remember her as the gentle, peace loving and caring queen. Indeed she became the one of the most famous personalities in the British royalty. Sadly, she died in her sleep days after her second daughter Princess Margaret in 2004 at the age of 102. She left her assets to her only surviving daughter Elizabeth II. Among her assets are money, jewelleries, paintings, horses and Faberge eggs. The late queen was fond of collecting Faberge eggs because of their elegance and beauty; really looks like faberge egg for sale that I have seen in some stores. The late queen was buried in Westminster Abbey; her coffin was placed on the Tomb of The Unknown Warrior.

Looking Forward to Valentine’s Day

I’m quite excited to Valentine’s Day even though my girlfriend is working in Dubai now. I am thinking of surprising her wonderful gift and guess what? Two silver necklaces with faberge pendants wohoooo! I was browsing on the internet earlier in the office (it was lunch time haha) when I saw beautiful necklaces in one website. My girlfriend loves necklaces and she prefers silver rather than gold. No matter how expensive the gift is, it doesn’t matter to me (as long as I can afford it LOL) because I love my girlfriend yay! Well, let’s go back to the necklace LOL. I chose faberge pendants because they look elegant and beautiful; perfect for my girlfriend. They say that women appreciate more their womanhood if they wear the things they like. I really am excited for the Valentine ’s Day though I know that I have to prepare first for this coming Christmas season haha.

Having Insurance is Good

Having insurance is great help especially if you don’t have a big amount of money in the bank. For example you buy a car, if you want to have peace of mind if something happens to your car, then you apply for insurance. Not only car, you can also insure your house, health, life, business, building and others. In short, insurance gives us peace of mind. In my case I have health insurance so if I get sick, I would not have to worry about the consultation and service fee because I am insured. I’m also thinking of getting health insurance for my parents.

When it comes to insurance, nothing beats state farm insurance when talking about excellence in service. Yes, they can provide all you need just in case something happens to your car, to your life, to you house etc. I would rather say that they are insurance experts. I would recommend this to my relatives because many of them don’t have insurance yet. Remember the keyword when it comes to insurance, it is “state farm”.

Joey Albert’s “I Remember the Boy”

The Song I Remember the Boy was written by Jose Mari Chan and originally sung by Joey Albert in 1980s. This song became a hit in the Philippines in the late 80s. In 1999, this song was included in Lea Salonga’s album titled “By Heart”. In 2009, Christian Bautista did a remake of “I Remember the Girl” in his album “Romance Revisited”.

I Remember the Boy
Today I heard them play the song again
An old familiar strain from way back when
Every note and every line
It's always been a fav'rite song of mine

It used to haunt me so some years ago
Reminds me of a boy I used to know
And although the melody lives on
The mem'ries and the boy are all but gone

And while the song still brings that certain glow
And the words still sing of love I know
It isn't quite the way it was before
I remember the boy but I don't remember the feeling anymore

The promises we made seem easier then
As if we knew our love would never end
But seasons change and time erases the tears
As swiftly as the rivers disappear

So while the song still brings that certain glow
And the words still sing of love I know
It isn't quite the way it was before
I remember the boy but I don't remember the feeling
I remember the boy but I don't remember the feeling anymore


Joey Albert’s “Yakapin Mo Ako”

The song Yakapin Mo Ako was composed by Louie Ocampo in the 80’s. This song is my personal favourite. Here’s the lyrics of the song together with the YouTube Video. Enjoy guys!

Yakapin Mo Ako Lyrics

Minsan Pa, Yakapin Mo Ako
nang Mahigpit, 'tong Huling Sandali
kailanman, Ang Nasa Isip Ko'y
ang Labi Mo'y Mahalikang Muli

ngayon Unawain, Puso Ko'y Umaamin
na Ika'y Hahanapin Irog Ko
kailangan Sabihin Masakit Sa Damdamin
mawala Ka Sa Buhay Ko

minsan Pa, Yakapin Mo Ako
masdan Ang Puso Kong Lumuluha
tandaan, Mapalayo Ka Man
kahit Saan, Mamahalin Kita

[Repeat Refrain]

How much do you save from your monthly salary after paying all your monthly bills? I hope you are able save at least 5% of your monthly salary for future use or emergency purposes.

The Convenience of Having Your Own Car

In the United States, almost all families own at least one car because it seems like a necessity to them. Unlike in the US, having a car in the Philippines is a status symbol, meaning, your family’s annual income is in the higher bracket. Buying a new or used car in the Philippines seems like expensive for a common Filipino who takes home a minimum pay per month. Well, that’s the sad truth. My family doesn’t own a car and I want to have one in a span of five years because I need it to my work. Moreover, commuting is quite inconvenient for me due to my allergic rhinitis. It attacks when I inhale smoke and dust. Most of the buses that routing to our place is not air conditioned so it’s a pain in the ass. When I acquire a car, I will just apply a car loan; however, I have bad credit. Good thing I have found Loans For Bad Credit. Through that, I’ll be able to apply for a car loan without any flaw.

When it comes to bathroom tiles, my mother prefers yellow or pink. My mom believes that bathroom and kitchen are the most important parts of the house. We cook and process our food in the kitchen and we answer the call of nature in the bathroom. So, my mom wanted to renovate out bathroom first before the kitchen. Let’s talk about the bathroom for now. Our bathroom before had a lousy appearance. It was very small, about two square meters only. The toilet bowl had peach color and there were no tiles. Furthermore, the shower was just made out of plastic so it easily got rusty and mossy. Last year, my mom decided to renovate our bathroom. She ordered to install yellow tiles for the wall and brownish ties for the floor. Also, she bought white toilet bowl and sink, silver shower and faucets. Above the tile border is wall painted in white. Of course, the plumbing system should be prioritize and should be taken care by the trusted name in Plumbing like Plumbing Tacoma. Plumbing Tacoma has been in the industry for many years now and that is the proof of their reliability and best service.

Choosing the Right Car

I’m not so familiar about cars but when I saw Mitsubishi Evo in their website, my enthusiasm has knocked. My family doesn’t have own car because we think of renovating our house first. When we are done with our house, that’s the time we purchase a car. My uncle advised me that I buy a brand new one because used cars are prone to damage. Moreover, we don’t rely our full travel convenience with a second-hand car because it doesn’t last for many years. My manager in our company purchased a Mitsubishi car last 1998 and until now, his family enjoys it. It doesn’t give him any major problem and that’s the good thing about purchasing a new one. If you have cash or you can finance a car through, then why not does it? When it comes to car, now, my priority is Mitsubishi Evo.

My Vain Sister

My sister is vain when it comes to her body and personal hygiene. She always buys different kinds of cosmetics for her face. She also buys different kinds of soaps for different parts of her body. She has a separate soap for her face, feet, body and armpit. The kind of soap that she buys regularly is whitening soap to whiten her skin. I always tell her that she already has fair skin but she keeps on insisting that her skin is dark. My mother just let my sister’s wants as long as she buys her own beauty things and not my mother hahaha! When it comes to lotion, my sister has three bottles of them; different smells, different flavours (like papaya, avocado and apple). Since my sister likes lotion very much, I have an idea about the gift that I’ll give her on Christmas. I’ll give her l`occitane body lotion as additional to her collection. I bet she will use it immediately the moment she’ll receive it from me because l`occitane body lotion is different from other lotions in her collection. I guess she will recommend it to her friends hahaha!

Joey Albert’s ”Million Miles Away”

“Million Miles Away” is another hit from Joey Albert after “Over and Over” and “Tell Me”. This song came from her self-titled album in 1984 and it is composed by Robert More. This is also one of my favorites.

Million Miles Away

I'd love to make you mine
'Cause it's the only way to hold you
In my wild imagination
Still don't know how
To grab a chance and spend some time
In just a simple conversation

Just give it a try
Though I'm like chasing rainbows in the sky
I wanna hold you in my dreams
And make believe that it's true
Although I know, I know that it's impossible to do
'Cause you're a star
People love you as you are
You're a million miles away from me

Wished that you were here
'Cause it's illusions every time you're close to me
And sing my love songs
And it's the only way
I could tell the whole world I love you
Although you're a million miles away

Just give it a try
Though I'm like chasing rainbows in the sky
I wanna hold you in my dreams
And make believe that it's true
Although I know, I know that it's impossible to do
'Cause you're a star
You're a star
You're a star


Just give it a try
Though I'm like chasing rainbows in the sky
I wanna hold you in my dreams
And make believe that it's true
Although I know, I know that it's impossible to do
'Cause you're a star
You're a star
You're a star
Million miles away from me...

Tell Me

There are nights when I can't help but cry,
And I wonder why you had to leave me

Why did it have to end so soon?
When you said that you would never leave me

Tell me, where did I go wrong?
What did I do to make you change your mind completely?
When I thought this love would never end
But if this love's not ours to have,
I'll let it go with your goodbye.

Why did it have to end so soon?
When you said that you would never leave me

Tell me, where did I go wrong?
What did I do to make you change your mind completely?
When I thought this love would never end
But if this love's not ours to have,
I'll let it go with your goodbye.
