Google Connects!

I’m a little apprehensive; I’m expecting a mail from Microworkers last December unfortunately until now no mail arrived. I asked my mother to visit the post office to check the mail last Friday. She texted me that she got it but when I arrived at home from work it wasn’t the mail that I’m expecting – it was from Google. I didn’t expect it because I didn’t received message from them that they send mails.

Letter from Google

Honestly when I received it my heart is leaping with joy! LOL….. Google connects!!! The letters were promotional letter of Google AdWords and my Adsense personal identification number (PIN).

When you closely look the mail it was received at the post office last September 23, 2010. And it took four months before I received it. Imagine that! Then probably the letter from Microworkers which I requested last November 29, 2010 will arrived this March! Sigh…

I do hope the mailing system in our place will be improved or else I’ll report them in “Bayan Mo i-Patrol Mo”….LOL….

Ooppps!!! I better go before I forgot that I have things to do…

Seven Things About Me

It’s been long since I received an award in the blogosphere. Thanks to Pinx of Pink Memoir of giving the Stylish Blogger Award. *mwuah*

stylish blogger award Actually there’s a rule behind this award.

  1. Thank and link back the person who gave you this award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Award 15 great bloggers you know.
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

 

Now here are the seven (7) things about me. Although I already posted a related article about seven I would just reiterate here. Seven (7) is a significant and my favorite number!

  1. There is number seven on my birthday; I was born on April 17, 1982.
  2. According to my mother, the number of my bed when I was born was seven.
  3. I am the 7th child of my father; but not of my mother. My father is a widower and has five children by his first marriage.
  4. 7th grandchild of my grandparents from my mother side.
  5. My birthstone is diamond, and there are seven letters in the word diamond.
  6. Consider 1982 (the year of my birth) as separate numbers: 1, 9, 8, and 2. Subtract 2 from 9           and you’ll get number 7. Same with eight minus one!! And
  7. I have seven dark and bulging moles on my face.

Captcha!!!

I was awakened with the loud chirping of bird one cold afternoon. And when I opened my two tired eyes there I found a bird freely flying in our room. Slowly I grabbed my camera and took a pic of it. I attempted at least eight then CAPTCHA!!! Got it! Got it!!! GOT ITTT!!! Yehey!

Bird Flying

Birds can freely play inside the house because of the open windows. One time I jokingly told my mother that I was like inside the convent, where we can only hear the rustling sounds of the winds and chirping of birds. Mama hates music! She only wants the sound of silence… LOL…..

I love to see the birds flying inside the house except that they left there dung on our bed… LOL….

BIrds Poo Hmmm… I’m wondering why they poop on one side only?

Personalized Calendar

Although it’s already mid-January our office still received calendars. Calendars are the usual give away of companies as a way of saying thank you for using their services. Which to the advantage of the company, the calendar give away also serves as an advertisement. You can see wall calendars with the big and bold companies’ name and logos in it.

Personalized calendars are also popular as a gift. You can have a standing desktop calendar, photo calendars, wall calendar, planner calendar with the photos of your love ones or you yourself printed on it. And when you are too busy with your work, glancing at your schedule in your planner will make you pause for a while. I bet it would draw your face a smile when you see the photos of your children smiling back at you.

Or if you are a frustrated model why not include your photos in your personalize wall calendar. Hang it and viola! You’re an instant hired model for your calendar. We cannot tell somebody might discover your potential as a model.

With the different photo editor now a days, personalizing is as easy as one, two, three. Adding with special effects you yourself can be a star, a gorgeous model for your personalized calendar.

He’s Leaving


Leaving on a Jet Plane
Now I understand why my boyfriend hates the song “Leaving on a Jet Plane”. I used to teased him with this song because we sang this song when we were 4th year High School and he was the one who played the guitar. And he hates it! I don’t know why.

My boyfriend will go to a strange place …. because we believe this is the only temporary solution of his problem (sorry I cannot elaborate it further). He will leave full of uncertainties….. the place – will he ever adopt the kind of lifestyle in Manila? Will he find the solution to his problem? Will he return?… I don’t know when he’ll be back again”.
 
We both hate this situation… but we are left with no other option… Hopefully, everything will turn okay… I’m praying for that.
Leaving on a Jet Plane
All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go
There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing

Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes I'll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Reviewing My Blog List

As I have said in previous post, my blogroll links have something to do with my PR zero. I read the message in my Google account, which I will elaborate in another post [later], that one of my pages are using techniques that are outside the quality guidelines of Google. My PR dropped the day [or maybe hours] after I linked a site in my blogroll. And I forgot what site it is. Grrr…

While waiting for the response of my request for reconsideration, I review the sites in my bloglist and have it linked in my sidebar instead of creating another page. So if you think your blog is not in my list and you believe that we have exchanged link before please leave a comment. I will check your site before I add it on my blog list.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update on PR Zero

Sorry if I deleted my Blogrolll. My page rank dropped to zero and Google ads are gone. I think I violated something. Google Webmaster Tools notice of detected unnatural links on this site, http://mpr-spicesofmylife.blogspot.com/. And I’m figuring out how these things happened. I reverted to the old Minima template and deleted my chatbox. Hoping this will help. I guess exchanging link has something to do with this problem. I’ll just update you. (…sigh…)

PR ZERO???

I was about to register this blog but I was really surprised when I check my page rank - zero[???] What??? I do not know what happened. the last time I checked it was PR 3. Hope there's just a technical error with PR checker.

Back to the Old Method of Cooking

But a modernize one…

Coal Cooking

Old rice cooker turned into an improvised stove

Tatay purchased this innovated coal stove to lessen our use of LPG since price increases to almost Php 800.00 for 11 kg. LPG tank.

Coal? You might think it’s difficult to make fire on it. Well this modernize old fashion way of cooking is powered with electricity to supply the fan so you don’t have to blow manually just to make fire. The electric power used to run the fan is not that big, it won’t add a significant increase to your average consumption of electricity. Plus coal is cheaper compare to LPG gas. The only downside I can see is that it gave your pot a messy black powdery look after. So prepare your hands for cleaning.

When to Consult a Dentist?

DSC01217 Baby Hannah needs to see the Dentist. See her two teeth in the lower part?

Often we overlook the need of dental care for infants. It’s in our mindset that baby’s teeth will be replaced with permanent. According to mychildrenschoice.com, a baby should be put into Pediatric Dental Care as early as the first tooth appears and no later than the child’s first birthday. Consultation to specialist will correct the misplaced growth of teeth and advise you the proper care and nutrition of teeth. Further, in case of orthodontic related problem, early treatment is better to avoid complication as the child grows older. Good set of teeth make difference: the way you speak, the way your face formed and the confidence that you have. 

When I learned about this, I really regretted because if only I have consulted the dentist as soon as I learned that my teeth misaligned then I wouldn’t have spent a big amount for my teeth braces. I can attest, psychologically my teeth affects my confidence. 

On Tatay’s Birthday

Tatay turned 71 last New Year…. and we are counting more years… we’re praying for that: longer life that is healthy - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

On New Year’s eve we only had a cake and a bottle of wine since we’re still full out from our sumptuous dinner.

Tatay

To celebrate life and New Year we attended mass at 8:00 am then proceeded to our house hopping. We took our lunch to one of our siblings. The kids prepared the candles formed into number 71. How thoughtful isn’t it?

New Year Rituals

1. Putting God first. Amidst the noisy background, our family chose to stay still and silent while offering prayer to God 5 minutes before 2010 ends. Unlike Christmas there were only three of us left in the house since my siblings celebrate New Year in their respective homes.

God First

2. Lighting seven different colored candles. Seven is a significant number to my mama… Yay! I forgot to ask.

7 colored candles melted candles

Under the candles are prayer intention of my mother. If I only knew then I’d probably taken picture of it.

3. When the hour hand strikes to 12, mama and tatay rolled coins and 12 kiat kiat fruits from the main door, symbolizes more graces to come for the whole year.

Rollling coins and kiat2

4. Of course New Year celebration is not complete without the 12 round fruits. I love arranging fruits!

DSC01260

NO more jumping. LOL… I’m old and I know no matter how I jump high my height wouldn’t increase.

Anyway these are just rituals. We still believe that the success lies on our effort: hard work, perseverance plus prayers.

Tatay

If there’s someone who was super surprised last Christmas… then it was my father.

He jokingly announced to the family that he wanted a pair of Adidas shoes. Little did he know that my brother, his manito, really bought what he wished.

DSC01112 

So when he opened the gift, at first, the Adidas shoe box doesn’t make sense at all. He thought it’s only the box. But when he opened it, he was really shocked. I saw his surprised face, sooo cute! If only I captured it… he didn’t expect for it.

DSC01118 DSC01120

Later he admitted that he was a little bit embarrassed. But we assure him that we would really love to give him what he want. We love him so much!!!

Well the pair of Adidas shoes is also a gift for his Birthday. Hey! New Year is also his birthday!!!

Happy birthday tatay… We love you!!!

 

By the way HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
