Monday Sickness

....... I am so lazy to get up from bed this morning. I just want to laze around and stay home. But hubby has been waking me up twice already. Reminding me of things to do! I need to fix Gabby's school things and her baon. I need to fix mine too as to get early and beat traffic on my way to the office.

I just punched in at exactly 8:04 a.m this morning. I am not late,just perfectly in time. I feel oh so low on a Monday morning. There are lot's of paper on my table and sticky notes everywhere from my boss asking me to do this and do that. I went to the bank twice already this morning and will return after lunch for another series of bank transactions.

All I want is to surf the net and blog. I wanna go home and sleep again. OH!!! I am so tired. I think I need a break...

for twilight fanatics, join in this conversations:


A Perfect Gift

>> 11/22/2008

Two weeks ago, hubby's eyeglasses accidentally fell and was broken. He's complaining to me because it was still new and quite pricey. I asked him not to worry too much and promised that I will buy a new one for him as a Christmas gift because I saw a Holiday Glass Frames From Zenni Optical. It's a good thing that this The popular online eyeglasses shop is offering such a nice and quality pair of glasses at $ 8 Complete Rx Eyeglasses. I think this will look good on him.

Paypal Identity Theft Scam

>> 11/21/2008

Oh my! I almost lost all my paypal earnings due to "Paypal Identity Theft Scam". Good thing I am using Firefox as my browser and so I was given a warning that I am on a page that is already reported as a web forgery! read the rest of the story HERE!

I am now careful each time I do my online activities. and here are some helpful hints if you are being tricked on accessing your paypal account:

7 Warning Signals For a Paypal Identity Theft Scam

Warning sign 1
Quite often you may get emails from paypal asking you to verify your account or, asking you to provide some personal information. This is the first warning signal of Identity theft scam. Never, ever provide any information, because paypal will never request for any personal information from you.

Warning sign 2
The email for account verification, which you get in the name of paypal, will be sent to an email ID which is not in the paypal files.

Warning sign 3
The email uses forged headers. Forged headers are not easy to detect. Check if your email provider has options for blocking forged headers. If not, then ask them if its possible to do so.
Warning sign 4

Paypal will never greet you with ‘Dear Paypal Member’ or ‘Dear Paypal User’. It will always greet you with your name that is registered on the paypal account.

Warning sign 5

The fifth warning sign is the threatening email which might be informing you that paypal is going to suspend your account.

Warning sign 6

Do not click on a link that leads to a non-secure page, with no https and no secured browser, without a padlock in its lower left hand corner.

Warning sign 7

The seventh sign is bad English. Paypal will never use a bad english for communication.

If you observe any of these signs, then beware. It’s quite possible it’s a scam. If you have any kind of suspicion, then contact paypal for assistance.

The only person who you can blame for identity theft is yourself, so make sure that you are “street wise” in terms of online fraud and identity theft.

After 49 years, I was able to resized and uploaded all the photos taken last week during the 1st year death anniversary of my FIL. LOL! it really gave me a hard time and worst is I've lost all my files on my USB flash drive. Our computer at home has tons of viruses in it and badly needs reformat. Arrghhh.. Good thing I have uploaded those photos online in my multiply account.whew!

here are some photos at the Himlayang Pilipino:

Jersey For My Boys

>> 11/18/2008

The husband just recently received some collection items from LA Lakers courtesy of her Aunt who just came home for a 3 week vacation in the Philippines. He really liked the sports jersey that he got. Even the little boy got a mascot stuffed toy in sports jersey suit!

This led the husband to find another hobby to get busy with, that is collecting sports jersey from different kind of games, basketball or soccer. Be it local or international team, and he wants also the little boy to wear such kind of jerseys. I on the other hand was asked to to do some searching over the net to find stores who offer quality jerseys.

It's good that I stumble upon NFL Jerseys, They offer high quality materials for the jerseys that they make. Just in time for this Christmas season they are offering a wide variety of NFL kids helmet and uniform sets. Another good thing about their football uniform is that it can be doubled as kids pajamas! They are made of a soft double knit polyester NFL jersey along with double knit polyester pants with elastic waistband and cuff for easiness of wearing. I am sure the little boy will be giddy happy to wear one and pretends to be a good football player. LOL!



Thanks for sharing this one Eds and Vannie! :)

Despite waking up with headache and having difficulty resizing all the photos we took last Sunday. It is a lucky day for me. Why? first, I won $5 in Millete's contest. Second, Paypal earnings! heee. I am inspired to blog now, but I am so tired from going back and forth to the bank in doing transactions. I am juggling blogging and office tasks the whole day. tsk..tsk...


A quick peek here...

>> 11/15/2008

Just got home from attending my daughter's PTA meeting and distribution of report card. I wasn't able to include this in my To Do's list yesterday because I forgot that they have a meeting. Oh?! the forgetful me strikes again! Last night, the husband reminded me of the PTA meeting at 10:30 in the morning. I was like, huh?! It really slip my mind. I thought I could laze around this morning, instead I was really rushing my laundry and woke up as early as 5 a.m. I was done at 9 a.m. thank goodness that I was able to attend the meeting since there are lots of issue to tackle regarding their upcoming christmas programs.

Later this afternoon we are going to attend a mass intended for the 1 year death anniversary of Ian's Dad. My FIL. I hope wherever he is now, he is at peace and in loveing arms of our dear beloved Lord. We are missing you so much Daddy!


Quick Update

>> 11/13/2008

I was kinda busy doing some online window shopping which eats out most of my time since yesterday! hee.. I'm trying to save my PayPal earnings and promised not to withdraw it till next month, just in time to splurge it for Christmas. But shopping online is so tempting! ahehe

I do love the starbucks planner but when I saw the Belle De Jour planner I immediately placed my reservation for it, will just have to deposit the money and wait for the arrival. I so love it's design and the perks that goes with it. It's so chic and sassy!

Playing Deals Online!

>> 11/07/2008

I am not really fond of playing any games. But whenever I hear some people sharing their casino experiences with so much gusto I am having this urge to try it as well. Especially whenever they talk about Las Vegas and Macau which is haven for the casino lovers. But then, I couldn't afford those expensive hotels and places who hosts casinos by this time. Good thing I found this Casino online! wherein playing their Roulette really seems interesting for me to try! it's so easy for beginners like me because they have visual instructions for a quick and easy way to learn how to play popular casino games.

It's such a user friendly site wherein you can really learn so much and end up playing like a Pro in the long run. They have so many lots of treats to offer wherein you will be able to get hand of playing like a real deal casino. Another good point about them is that it is online. You can play at the comfort of your own home. So the expenses intended for your trip to Las Vegas will be added up for your capital for bets huh! they have this free slots with cash prizes :)

Oh btw, this site is in German language. You can check out their sister website HERE if you're having difficulty understanding German like I do! LOL!

Munchy Popcorns

>> 11/04/2008

I miss popcorn so much. I think I had eaten one a year ago when I last saw a movie at the mall with the hubby! and whenever our two kids saw a popcorn carts at the mall makes them giddy happy as well. with different flavors popping out in the market, I must say that pop corn in gift tins are the ones that catches my attention. It gave me a great idea to buy many of these as gifts to children who will ask presents this Christmas as tins are made perfect as gift packages. Popcorns are not just good for young ones but to not so young ones as well! hee..


Ian @ 31!

We feasted on this last Oct 28. A Jollibee delivery which was a birthday gift from Ate Irma. We were full and really enjoyed it. Ian cooked caldereta and pansit too.

photos were taken using a camera phone, pardon if it's dark and blurry. no digicam yet eh! :-(


Zenni Optical On Fox News!

>> 11/03/2008

As I have previously said that I need new eyeglasses since my eyes' grade are no longer compatible with my eyeglasses that I'm wearing now. I've been having the symptoms of dizziness and eye fatigue. I have searched the net to find Great Eyeglasses For Less and I feel so lucky to find Variable Dimension Frames From Zenni which are so cheap and made of quality materials for only $8. See the photo at the bottom for the frame I want. That was a catch! It is good thing for it is online and no middlemen to deal with. And I was also surprised to find out that Zenni Optical was on FOX news! as I have been checking the news update over the net, I felt relieved and safe to find Zenni on Fox.

Procrastinator me. I am. the postponer. the delayer.

  • haven't uploaded the photos yet of Ian's birthday celebration, the pasalubongs and long overdue photos on my cp. heee
  • expiring opps
  • haven't checked on Gabby's notebooks and books if she has any other assignments aside from her artbook since ten days ago from her semestral break.
  • long overdue plans of organizing our closet, haven't bought any organizers yet for our drawers and boxes for the items labeled as for keeps.
  • blog makeover- updating links and changing of templates
  • long overdue plans of going to divi to buy gifts.

They said that If you want to do something, then do it now. not later! not tonight or tomorrow!
