Tagged: 10 Facts About Me

Sorry, I published it without posting anything. I was testing if the blogger was down. Anyway, I was thinking of creating an About Me page but I don't know how to start it, yet. And then, a friend named Red, leave a comment in one of my blog posts. She informed me about the tagged! I did not create a tagged post immediately! I was thinking what to write coz' there are facts about me that are too personal. So, here you go: 

The 10 Facts About Me 
  1. I came back to Manila to look for work after my mother's burial, though. It was a gamble because of my age. Afterward, I gave up looking for work because my pocket money began to drain that I end up washing the clothes of my boarding housemates for food and other needs. 
  2. I left the boarding house because I can't pay it anymore. And choose to live with my boyfriend (who become my husband), instead, who had a small room in an internet shop where he worked.
  3. Living with my husband was like a cat and a mouse play. He lived in a working place - an internet shop. The owner prohibits us from living together because it's business. So, I have to hide when the owner is around. I have to be thick-faced to lived. That is where I start blogging and looking for ways and means to earn online even in cents. 
  4. I gave birth for the first time at the age of 38. It's a boy. I gave up the thought of having a baby but unexpectedly he arrived. I think it was a miracle.
  5. Because of my baby, I was allowed to stay in the internet shop by the owner. Also, my husband had worked for a long time in the shop. That was a plus. Thank God, I stopped hiding because it made me nervous.
  6. I love collecting postcards and stamps around the world. I considered it as my treasure. That is why, I brought it here in Manila from the province and left it in the care of my cousin. She had an album of stamps and postcards herself. So, I entrust her my things.
  7. I love to read. Even if I am carrying a broom and cleaning some stuff, you bet! I will stop and read it if it looks informative. 
  8. I love dogs so much and treat them like a human being. I found out it's a no-no because it stress them. Once, I have a dog, I shampooed, towel dry his hair and brushed it. 
  9. I am an altruistic person but sometimes, it is misunderstood or I am misunderstood. That is why I mellowed down and kept it to myself. Each one of us is different and the words I used has a different meaning on them.
  10. I love everything that I do and enjoyed it. It makes me happy, though. Some people dislike it and I disregard it. I just can't stop fighting for my life.
There you go, guys! There is one fact about myself that I did not tell you because it is very personal. Guess, I am not ready to open up and talk about it, yet. Now, I'm going to tagged 10 people and get to know them. I'll tag Zoan, Blankpixels, Kathy29156, Vernz, Liz, Sie, Pinx, ladyguinevere28, Sarah and Yen.

There are rules: 10 facts about you and leave a comment without a link to make it more exciting!  :)

Baby Hammock


My husband and I want a baby hammock. My baby gets to sleep for only one to two hours. He has a difficult time sleeping, I think, when he is alone in bed especially the noise he hears outside of the room. So, I tried to look for baby hammocks online and were surprised for the new and modern trends.
They call it Hushamock! Also, in this website Miyo Baby Hammock, one of their products is a wooden stand that holds the hammock. But, don't worry for the installation. You can read the how-to installation process from their website that includes the parts supplied by their company.

But then, I am looking for Philippine type hammock like the photo below. Not the old type that looks like a bedsheet. I think it's prohibited because of the SID syndrome and accidents. You'll never know..

     And sure enough, his Ninong or Godfather brought a second-hand baby hammock. But, it's worn out, my husband fix it.  And there you go, my baby, who gets wild sleeping for the first time in the hammock.

 Later on, he sleeps soundly.

Into My Own

Guess, my mind is chaotic! I think a lot but can't write a blog. My mind is affected with personal matters in my heart. So, I decided to search for short poems and explain every stanza's on my own.

Into My Own
(Robert Frost)

One of my wishes is that those dark trees,
So old and firm they scarcely show breeze,
We're not, as "twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto the edge of doom.

"One of my wishes is to push out that old grudges
and spread its' wings of forgiveness"

I should not be withheld but that some day
into their vastness I should steal away,
Fearless of every finding open land,
or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

"I will not stay, I will go unafraid into a foreign land
where there will be great opportunities...
I do not see why I should e'er turn back,
Or those should not set forth upon  my track
To overtake me, who should miss me here
And long to know if I held them dear.

 "I don't understand. When will I return home? Who will
miss me? Will they miss me? Are they interested
to know their importance?"

They would not find me changed from him the knew¬
Only more sure of all I thought was true.

The sound of sadness in leaving home and preparing to stay on his own.

White Noise

I was looking for baby's lullaby from the net when I come across the word "White Noise". Now, what is a White Noise? Why it is called, white noise? What's the connection of the white noise to a baby's lullaby? These are the questions that instantly popped into my head.

According to Mr. Wikipedia
is a random signal (or process) with a flat power spectral density. In other words, the signal contains equal power within a fixed bandwidth at any center frequency. White noise draws its name from white light in which the power spectral density of the light is distributed over the visible band in such a way that the eye's three color receptors (cones) are approximately equally stimulated.
From HowStuffWorks
The adjective "white" is used to describe this type of noise because of the way white light works. Because white noise contains all frequencies, it is frequently used to mask other sounds.
So, what’s the connection of a white noise to a baby’s lullaby? 
I searched the net and found out that a white noise helps to soothe a crying sleepy babies and babies with colic. It calms down your baby to sleep. There are a lot of explanations about the white noise from the internet. You can even download free mp3’s of white noise music. 

But what is the sound of a white noise? 
To tell you, it’s the daily sound of the environment. It has two categories: nature and mechanical categories. Nature sounds like the rain drops, ocean wave, the wind and many others. While, mechanical sounds include the sound of your electric fan, washing machine, the sound of your air-con and many more. 

I tried it on my baby. First, it made him quiet and listens but I guess he changed his mind. There again, he cries out loud. My baby was only two months, then. 

In every advantage point, there is also a disadvantage for every perspective you learn. From WebMD, it says that: “White noise may delay an infant’s development”. Unlike speech or music, white noise, such as radio static or an air conditioner's hum, is random sound with no distinguishable auditory pattern. That is based on their study and research.

I will not advise you to try white noise on your baby. But, try to ask your Pediatrician first about it.

My Athena Milk Samples Has Arrived

Yay! At last, the Athena Milk has arrived. The paper bag contain 2 packs of 180-gram Athena powdered milk in two flavors. Those flavors are Chocolate and Milk. I was one of the first 500 women who luckily signed up for Athena Milk samples.

After I received the milk, I instantly tried the chocolate flavor. No sugar added :) only the milk powder and hot water. But, before I drank it, husband made the first move. So, I have to make another glass of Athena chocolate milk.

Athena is very creamy and delicious. No foul smell like the other brands. Honestly, I am choosy when it comes to milk. After tasting other brands and smell something, I would yuck and stop drinking it. But not with Athena because I continuously drink the pack they have given me. I would buy for more when the milk runs out! 

Milk is very important especially for a woman. I’m glad that Athena was created to cater a woman’s need. It has high calcium with low fat and very nutritious. It is good for dieters, no need to worry in gaining weight. Athena milk contains anti-oxidants like Vitamins A, E and Zinc that boosts our immune system and purifies our skin cells. 

I would like to recommend Athena Milk for Women especially for the new moms who had newborn babies. I guess, women will agree that giving birth is tiring and makes our energy low. What they need is the Athena Milk for Women, to gain-back the strength and energy.

Router or DSL?

We had NO INTERNET CONNECTION for almost 2 days. That means lower sales on the internet shop. Customers would stop in the doorway and turned back their heels. Most of the clients play only DOTA until 10 in the evening. Heck, it's too early to sleep so I played Plants vs Zombies, again. heheh.

We thought the router was broken. When I turned it on, the lights went on verrrryyy slow. My husband tried to fix it up and played plants vs. zombies, after. He doesn't know that the internet was up. I took a seat in one of the computers and silently check my Facebook and emails.

Then the cashier came and we thought she will only get the sales. She asked my husband if the internet was up. She said, she called the PLDT and asked for an extension of due date.

Which is which? Router or PLDT?

Changing My Template

Hi! If you happen to pass through my blog and wonder what happened. Why some widgets gone and some looks upside down. That's because I am trying to change my blog template. One by one widgets will be taken off the blog and saved it's html codes into folder.

I can not let someone fixed it fast for me. No money to pay, maybe in the near future :) So, please bear with me because I'm a frustrated web designer on this thing.

Thank you very much!
