A Source of Online Entertainment

Lately, I have been trying out some online game I got as a promotional CD installer and giveaway from our last visit at Eastwood City.  Computer games can really be very engaging and, entertaining when properly scheduled and controlled.

There is a web site that offers iPhone games and other cool stuff like Zuma for mac, Mac PacMan, Solitaire for mac and some other free stuff. The web site is  Check out this site for your share of online entertainment.

Frustrated Over My Absentmindedness

I feel so frustrated about myself today.  As I woke up to meet the metal worker who will be working on our gate, agreed on a price for all his labor and the materials needed, and as I was about to get the money so he could buy the materials, I couldn't find my wallet.  And as I try to retrace my steps I couldn't think of an instance when I could have left it somewhere.  :( That is really frustrating.  Aside from feeling sorry for the money inside, what I feel bad about is this pattern of not having a presence of mind with trivial but very important stuff.

I just am thankful that my wife, even in her sudden burst of frustration over my absentmindedness, was able to keep herself from being too hard on me.  And it makes me feel worse about myself knowing that I let her down again.

I just hope that my wallet would turn up sudenly or if someone found it somewhere that they would contact me and be honest enought to return it to me - or that I would suddenly be flooded with a recollection of what happened to it.

Finding Financial Peace for 2009

Year 2008 is about to come to an end and another year will begin. A serious matter that needs to be done is an end-of-the-year evaluation of everything in our lives. From matters like mental and personal development and growth, physical and health issues, spiritual, relational and financial concerns. For some, an area that is least given attention is the spiritual aspect, giving priority to their personal finances especially when they need to find debt help.

This is something that is natural but I encourage everyone to also focus on the spiritual. Not to say that finances and spiritual matters need to be separated because, in fact, the Bible, more specifically the New Testament, talks a lot about finances and giving more than the topics of love and prayer. I guess because God understands how important money is to us.

So if you are in need of credit help, be sure to not forget to call on God because it is He who can give you what other financial companies can't – that's a peace that passes all understanding. As Suze Orman, one of the most influential people of 2008 according to Time Magazine, quotes, “A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.” God alone can give that.

My Niece and My Son

Last week, my family and I paid a visit to my mother's where my sister and her daughter are. It was a great time to catch up on each other's busy lives and a time to take pictures.  Christmas vacations allow these moments and we're glad to have spent some time with them.

A Piece of Land With a Garden

I have always dreamed of having a property with a lawn or a backyard. Perhaps in the future, my wife and I would be able to invest on a property of this kind. We have thought about areas like Tagaytay or Baguio City where there are cool temperatures – locations, perfect for vacation houses. If ever this dream gets fulfilled we would want to have its lawn or yard landscaped and have a nice garden like having our own estate.

Stonebank Ironcraft is a web site that specializes in making high quality garden and estate ironwork. They have been in that business since 1976 and they boast of a personal and reliable service to their clients. In addition to that, their work is so good that they have been featured in many award winning gardens. Their products are all made in England by skilled craftsmen.

Some of their specializations are installations of estate fencing, railings that are decorative and pergolas, all with fine finish. Quotations can be sourced through their web site and a catalogue of their work is also available upon request.

I am looking forward to the time when my wife and I would be able to enjoy the beauty of a land of our own and we are willing to wait for the right time for this – willing enough to wait until our old age.

I'm Getting Addicted to Hot Rocks' Porterhouse

I think I have become addicted to HotRocks' Porterhouse Steak. Last night, we went back to this gillery located in Libis, Quezon City and that was two days in a row of eating the said steak. Hot Rocks, which is frequently visited by performing artists (you can see their signatures on the plates that hang on this restaurant's walls), has another branch along Ortigas Avenue in front of the gate two of MERALCO.

Today, we might go back there with the whole family and in-laws. Their Porterhouse steak, which is their bestseller, is something that you would come back for - with its tender and juicy, grilled meat. You should check this steak house and grillery and get swept off your feet with their steaks.

Requesting Prayer for Our Church

By the middle of February 2009 our deposit at our church's current rented space will be through and we will either have to move to another place or renegotiate for a new contract. Our church's present location is at the third floor of a building which has a wet market below and outside of the building.  This setting has become not coducive for our church ( as we also have plans of starting a pre-school so we are looking for a space on the ground floor, and tiles or wood flooring are not necessary.

Our current budget for rent is P20,000 a month and at that rate, the available spaces are too small for our church to congregate every Sunday and hold children's Sunday school.  The place preferrably has to be within the vicinity of Kalayaan Avenue near Barangays Guadalupe Nuevo, Pitogo, Pinagkaisahan and South Cembo area because of our existing feeding ministry to families in that area.  Our church, in partnership with Manna Worldwide, feeds about 60 children from Tuesday to Friday every week, lunch and supper.

We ask prayers as we continue to search for direction, whether we need to stay and renegotiate or find a place big enough for our church activities but fits our budget - something that is hard to find in the Makati area.  But we claim the promise that nothing is impossible with God, so we are hopeful and are anticipating how God will make a way for this to be settled.  We thank you in advance for your prayers.

Caged Animals at the Residence Inn, Tagaytay

I like looking at animals but I don't totally enjoy seeing them caged, especially wild animals.  When I visit zoos I sometimes feel a sense of guilt, like being an accomplice with zoo owners, for being part of the market they cater to.  So I guess I am not worthy to be even speaking about this until I live a life consistent to not supporting caging of wild animals.

Below are some pictures of animals at the Residence Inn, Tagaytay.  I share the sadness of these animals in their imprisonment.

No Stones Left Unturned

As the year ends, maybe you are thinking about things you haven’t done yet. And maybe one of them is you and your family’s visit to the dentist. If you are in Washington DC area, there is a dental service that provides safe, gentle and pain-free treatments aside from the other dental services they provide. That is Washington DC cosmetic dentistry at its finest. 

So don't let the year end without making sure that there are no stones left unturned. Write out things you need to do, and if there is still a great chance to do them, proceed. There are still thirteen days left of 2008.

A New Blessing!

Finally, after months of researching the internet and the local market for a laptop I finally bought one that I really like.  When I was still researching a few months back on which notebook or netbook to buy I had my eye on the MSI Wind.  I considered the weight, first and foremost.  And then, I started reading about other Intel Atom carriers like the Lenovo S10, Asus Eee PC 1000H and the Asus N10J.  I was already set on getting an Eee PC (even though I really wanted the N10J) until Black Friday came.  

Since my in-laws were in the U.S.  I was given an opportunity to ask a favor which is buying a laptop on sale and I immediately fell in love with an HP Pavillion that was on sale, one that had Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, 3GB of memory and the rest of the specs were not that important for me.  But, after underestimating Black Friday, we were not able to get that notebook.

Since that day I have had second thoughts about the Intel Atom, realizing that the price difference with notebooks that had Intel Core 2 Duo were not that big here but the performance and power factors were.  So I began my search for the best buy locally.  I was faced with three options - MSI S1313, Blue M63 (both had Core 2 Duo T5750) and the MSI EX 400 but the one that carried Dual Core T3200 which is available locally. Each were available at P30,999.

I fell in love with the specs especially the dedicated 256MB video card. I was really at peace to settle for the EX 400 Dual Core T3200, 160 GB HD, 2 GB memory but with the ATI HD3450 video memory.  But in the back of my mind I still wanted the EX 400 with the T5750.  But price was the big issue. As we went to the store last Saturday afternoon, right on display was the EX 400 with the T5750 specfications which can be seen in the picture below.  

I was blown away by the price - until the sales personnel (the same one who sold us my wife's laptop) mentioned that they are bringing down the price of the display unit because of the scratch on its body but with the warranty still in.

My wife and I immediately considered especially that they were willing to drop the price P4,500 cheaper for the scratch.  We ended up buying this baby (or should I say monster, at least locally) and I am so happy we did end up getting this - my new laptop.

Got To Stay Fit

The way I played during our last football game gave me a greater desire to keep myself fit, or better yet become match fit. I don’t want to have to take a diet pill on January to keep my weight down especially because it’s Christmas season and their will be more parties to go to which means more food. I want to regularly jog and run up and down the bleachers of Marikina Sports Park and I intend to do that at least twice a week. I hope I can commit to that because right now I am starting to feel my trousers tightening on me.

A Great December Weekend

This weekend started out early with me and my wife travelling to Marikina Sports Park to meet my other teammates from our football club.  We were scheduled for a match against San Jose Del Monte at 10:00 am that day.  We proceeded then to the match venue which was at Xavier School in Greeenhills.

The game against the other football club was great except that we lost 2-0, with both goals made during the first half.  I played the whole 90 minutes, to my surprise, because I didn't expect that I would be fielded in that long during my second match of the season.

After, the game, my wife and I took our lunch at the Magnolia house along Aurora Boulevard, Quezon City, which is just a block away from Gilmore which was our next destination.

After having lunch, we looled for a parking space around Gilmore area to finally purchase a laptop for me.  

Initially, my plans were to purchase a netbook and I even wrote posts about the three that I was choosing from (Lenovo S10, MSI Wind and Asus Eee PC 1000H) but since the Black Friday sale, I started considering the powerful notebooks because of the price difference.

I ended up choosing from three notebooks that are not of the high end brand but with great specifications.  I'll be posting about the new laptop we bought later.

Sunday was a great day as well, more specifically because one of the youth we have been praying for finally came to church again after a few weeks of being away.

Overall, this was a very great weekend for me and I am glad to be able to share this with you guys.

Touring Our Son at the Residence Inn, Tagaytay


During our trip to Tagaytay, we first went to Residence Inn and visited their zoo there. It was the second time we have brought our son there but during the first time, he wasn't able to appreciate the animals yet because he was still a baby.

Although I really am not fond of seeing wild animals caged, we went there for our son's richer experience as we tried to introduce other animals he hasn't encountered in books we read.

We enjoyed our time together and was happy to see the smile on our son's face as we went around the zoo. He so enjoyed it that after spending the night at Tagaytay, he was asking us to go back to the zoo.

Protecting Your Credit

Protecting your credit is very important especially now that getting a totally free credit report is easy online. Anyone can easily assess their finances and credit through the internet. But avoiding low credit scores can be avoided if using your credit is regulated. Credit card companies invest on their call centers to call up credit card holders to max up their credit limits. But this is not advisable if you want to maintain a good credit score. You should set aside the remaining available credit for emergencies and other important things. By doing this you can be assured that the next time you get your free credit score, they are not very low.

When you check what your running credit score is, there are other important documents which you should be readily available. These documents are other credit reports from different bureaus, receipts and payments for debts that have already been cleared and other documents like these. A lot of times, getting a poor credit score comes as a result of minor errors and negligence. This could be on the part of the lender who do not update the bureau about the latest payments made. And you can easily avoid this by keeping good records.

Getting Back to My Blogging Pace

After a long break from blogging it is quite difficult to get back to my former pace. I don't even know what to write about despite the fact that there were many exciting things that have happened this past few days as my family and I went to Tagaytay for the 7th wedding anniversary celebration. I even took pictures of the places we went to. I guess it has become automatic for me and my wife to do that because we like to document everything and look back at them, aside from the fact that we use them a lot in our blogs. We really appreciate the technology of digital cameras because photos and snapshots can easily be taken and unwanted shots can easily be erased. In my coming entries I will be sharing some snapshots of our Tagaytay trip. Right now, let me jus tfeel my way back into the blogging pace.

7th Anniversary

Tomorrow, my wife and I will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. After more than seven years (because of a long engagement)of being together I'm glad that we're still sweet to each other, sticking to each other like magnets. Though we have experienced many tests and difficulties during the past seven years, we stuck to with God's help. We pray that our marriage continues to be strengthened in the years to come.

We Lost Against De La Salle Zobel

Yesterday was the first time I was able to join our football club for this season. It was our team's third match and it was held at De La Salle Zobel. We went up against the home team and it was too bad because we lost 8-1. This was quite disappointing after winning two games. Next Saturday, we will be playing against San Jose del Monte FC at the same venue and time. I hope that next week we would have a complete line up and that we win with lots of goals to increase our goal difference.

Have You Considered Debt Consolidation?

Getting a loan is not necessarily wrong although a truth that Proverbs 22:7 shares is “the borrower is servant to the lender.” That is why it is so important, when your debts have piled up, to get out of them immediately. But this may take a process and one of the steps to consider is to seek help from a debt consolidator.

There are many reasons to consolidate debt and one of them is it can minimize the time and energy you spend in managing many debts. By having one lender to communicate with it lessens the hassle of talking to many lenders.

Now, one may say that debt consolidation is like getting out of a loan through a bigger loan. It may seem like a vicious cycle. But one has to remember that when you consolidate debts, you remove all other debts and put them into one which can probably provide you with lower interest rates or lower monthly payments which can lead to freedom from debt if they are paid responsibly and with discipline.

You can search sites about this topic to read more about the benefits of debt consolidation. This can really be helpful if taken seriously and with wisdom.

Is the Price Tag Law (R.A. 71) and (DAO 10) Department Administrative Order No. 10 Effective?

This afternoon my wife and I went to Gilmore, Quezon City with the intention to purchase an ASUS Eee PC 1000H. We went straight to the store and asked about the unit but was almost convinced by the person we talked to, who seemed to be the owner of the store, to purchase the MSI Wind because of its cheaper price. For the same specifications (Intel Atom 1.6 GHz, 2GB RAM, 6-cell battery, 160 GB HDD) the MSI Wind cost only P24,900 and the ASUS Eee PC 1000H, P26,500. But when we said that we will be purchasing using a credit card, they then added P3,000 to both prices, but explained it as the higher price being the regular price (card price) and the lower price as the discounted price (cash price).

If you have heard of Republic Act 71 (R.A 71) or the Price Tag Law and Department Administrative Order No. 10 (DAO 10) which orders the ban on surcharges on retail transactions using credit cards, debit cards and automated teller machine cards, then you might feel the way I felt when I saw the price difference. I felt that the merchants who practice this just found a way around the law. And I am not even sure if they are breaking the law or not.

But this experience has made me think about this, "Is the Price Tag Act (R.A. 71) and the Department Administrative Order No. 10 (DAO 10) effective in protecting consumers?" Because , if in practice, difference in cash prices and card prices are still present no matter how merchants explain it, then I think the law hasn't really accomplished its purpose.

In fairness to merchants, I am aware that they sometimes need to resort to the difference in prices because of the charges made by credit card companies. But, what about the consumers? Should they carry that burden or at least share it with the retailers? Should there be a new law passed to finally end this difference in prices?

For now, I guess we are left to what is available. But one thing is sure, if things continue to be like this, many merchants who practice this may face losing customers. Like today, I ended up not making the purchase because of the large price difference. I may wait to make the purchase 2 to 3 weeks from now, when cash is already available but I'm not intending to go back to the same store.

I Like Being Sober

I am not part of the wine of the month club. Not that I have anything against people who drink, I just do not enjoy the taste of any alcoholic beverage. Yes, I have tasted some of them when I was in college but I have now made a personal commitment not to drink anymore - for personal reasons. I do not enjoy the feeling of not being able to control my actions which happens to be normal when we're drunk. I have been sober for many years now and have no plans of being not sober anymore.

Watching Twilight

Last Friday, my wife and I watched the movie Twilight. We enjoyed the movie and enjoyed the time watching a movie on the big screen because we haven't done that in a while. We took the chance when our three-year-old was with my sister-in-law's office.

We really liked the movie but was surprised to hear from those who have read the book that it was not as beautiful compared to the book. This led my wife to her search for e-books of Twilight. She now reads the book on her cellphone (.txt file).

I, on the other hand, am curious about the movie's soundtrack. I heard on the radio yesterday that there will be a soundtrack launching at Glorieta 3 this weekend with live bands performing. I don't know if I would get a chance to see that but I am curious and interested.

Two Are Better Than One

My wife has been asking help from me with some of her job opportunities online. We blog together, if some of you are not aware yet, and we are in this online business together. And during times when there are lots of things to write, like topics about cerebral palsy lawyers or other hard-to-write-about stuff, we help each other by sharing our ideas to each other. And we are both glad that our ideas do help. Two are really better than one.

You Should Try PayU2Blog

I really appreciate PayU2Blog so much. This past weekend they sent me tons of jobs again, about 15 opportunities all in all. I currently have three blogs approved by PayU2Blog and have submitted the fourth for their approval. I like their method of providing job opportunities because I won't have to wait for bids or wait online for available opportunities. They just send the jobs to my account and they do it at least twice a week per blog.

Compared to other paid to blog services, PayU2Blog only accepts blogs with their own domains. That is one reason why I have started investing on my own domains so I can get more opportunities from them. I hope to maximize my account by getting 5 blogs approved by them. I hope that the fourth blog I submitted will get approved soon.

Having Foot Problems?

Are you having trouble sleeping because of Plantar Fasciitis or heel pain? Well, you don't have to endure the pain because there are night splints available at They also offer heel cushions, foot/arch support, stretching aids and other things relating to the foot. They also have shoes and gift suggestions that are all geared towards improving comfort in your feet. Visit their web site now!

Go Marikina United FC!

Last Tuesday, I received word form my team mate that our football club, Marikina Unted FC won its match against Xavier FC, 6-0. I was surprised and was so happy to hear the news. The match was held at Xavier school in Greenhills andis part of the NCR FA Terry Razon Copa Filipina Tournament (Third Division).

My team mate shared that at the end of first half the score was 1-0. But our club just dominated the other team on the second half and I can't wait to become available to play with them soon.

Our football club's next match is on Saturday, December 6, 10 AM against La Salle Zobel and will be held at Ayala Alabang Zobel Field. I hope we win against them.

A Gift Suggestion For Your Spouse

Are you looking for a holiday gift for your spouse? Well, let me suggest Oceanus watches or other brands that you prefer. I am actually considering getting a his and hers for me and my wife as we celebrate our 7th year anniversary this Monday, December 8. Well, that is if she will agree to get a pair for both of us because right now our finances are directed towards expanding our online business, but I guess there is nothing wrong with including the watches in our plans if our budget would allow.

I've Found A Hosting Account That Fits Me Best

Finally, after searching for the right hosting package I have found what I feel is the best one that fits my blogging needs. I got a hosting account from Host Gator and I have decided to pay on a monthly basis. And to set it up for the first month I only paid $0.01. The package will allow me to set up blogs/sites for the other domain names I purchased that are just parked currently.

Also, finally, I have finished setting up which is the blog where I share my online money making experience. In this new wordpress blog, I share tips and my other experiences in my own online business. This blog used to be a blogspot blog but I have decided that I am better off with a wordpress blog for greater potential for growth.

In Need of an Office Desk at Home

Tomorrow, my wife and I might go out to look for discount furniture as we are in need of a table to work on for our blogging endeavors. We are not really sure if we will be purchasing an office table or just a small desk where we can sit around together as we work on our blogs because right now, we are occupying our living room's couch and center tables. We are more inclined on buying an office desk and two office chairs with arm rests but everything on our available budget considering that we will be buying a laptop first before we make this purchase.

Waiting for Special Orders

This past weeks I have been working on becoming a part of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Reserve Command, not to be in combat duty but to earn eligibility to become a Chaplain. Trainings with other pastors were conducted and today we finally came to the end of the training. Our group is now awaiting special orders and our ID's to be come officially enlisted personnel and junior officers of the AFPRESCOM. Below is a picture of our group who finished the training.

Financial Freedom Awaits You

If you are tired of accumulating debts and want to become free from any type of loans, it is not wrong to consider getting government debt consolidation loans as one of the options. The most important thing is that you take control of your finances instead of letting your finances take control of you.

Those who are having problems with debt, probably, have asked, “how does bankruptcy work?”, thinking that maybe they would need to come to the point when they would have to file for bankruptcy. Well, they can either do that or take control now and consider debt consolidation to finally get out of debt.

There are many web sites that are about debts and debt consolidation and they can help you by giving professional financial advice and guide you as you decide to take the right steps towards financial freedom. One site I can think of is

You should start taking control of your finances. I suggest that you write out a plan and a goal that you will try to reach within a specific period of time. It is never too late and you can do it. But you have got to really want it – to be free from debts and loans.

Get Good at Blogging and Get Paid

One of the many blessings and pay-offs of maintaining a blog is getting paid to blog. A mentor once told me that one way to stay happy in life is to find something that you love to do, do it and become so good at it that people will notice and eventually start paying you to do it. So, something that’s fun to do can now become a source of your income. Work won’t be boring, then.

This is what blogging has become to me and my wife. It is something we like to do. Although we haven’t come to a point where we or our blogs have made it good, but at least good enough to make money out of it.

Blog advertising network

One partner that we have in making this a reality is This is an online company that believes so much in bloggers and in blog advertising. This company of course expects their blogger partners to have blogs that have high link popularity, well indexed by search engines and are linked by authority sites such as DMOZ and the like. Of course, they also are seeking blogs that have a reasonable amount of traffic.

These are things that most blog advertising and paid to blog services look for in blogs. But what makes stand out among its competitors is their opportunity creation fee. What about it? Well,’s opportunity creation fee for advertisers is 50% less compared to other competing blog advertsing services.

Aside from being a great partner for advertisers who are looking to advertise on blogs, is also a great partner for bloggers. The layout and the user-friendliness of their web site and the dashboard they have for bloggers are so cool that navigation is really so easy.

So, if you feel like your blog has become good enough to be monetized, visit by clicking on the PayingPost widget on this blog’s sidebar, register and submit your blog for approval now.

Preparing for the "How Awesome Is Our God" Concert

Only a few days to go to the fund-raising concert organized by our mother church's music team and preparations are being finalized. Tonight will be their team's last night of practice and I will be joining them to play drums for one song entitled "A King is Born". It is a Christmas song that has a tribal feel to it.

My church's music team will also be playing song for the front act entitled "Prepare the Way". Tomorrow night our singers will be practicing and on Saturday afternoon, the musicians and the available singers will be running through the song.

The title of the fund raising concert is "How Awesome Is Our God" and there will be a mixture of old and modern songs that will be featured plus some of the original composition of a very talented musician, Ted Amper, who happens to be my brother-in-law. He has lead the organization of this event and one of the goals is to raise funds for Sumulong Baptist Church's Legacy project - their land and building project.

The concert will be held at ICITE Bldg. in Eastwood City on Sunday, November 30 at 6:00 PM and ticket prices are P500, P200 and P100.

Staying Fit and Healthy

Tonight I will be off to our football training at Marikina Sports Park. This is for our on going tournament which will run until February or March next year. The tournament was organized by the National Capital Region Football Association and is called the NCR FA's Terry Razon Copa Filipina tournament and our football club is joined the third division together with fourteen other teams.

I feel relaxed every after training because it is a way that I am able to work out and get into shape. I hope to maintain this lifestyle of being physically agile and fit as ling as I can and as long as my schedule permits me to. Doing this once a week is what I can handle at the moment but is sure has kept me from getting sick even as my wife and son have already gotten the flu about two weeks ago.

Can't Find Your Link?

Hello, to all my blogger friends, if you dropped by and was surprised to not see your link where it used to be, don't worry I did not remove your link. I just moved them to my "link list" page. you can find the link on my right most sidebar under the other pages.

I made a few adjustments to my links because of the LinksShowOff. Rest assured I would still be visiting your blogs frequently and dropping by to say hi and leave some $mile$. I hope to keep on seeing you all around, too.

From Asus Eee PC 1000H to an HP Pavilion

And I thought men were not fickle-minded. I just changed my mind suddenly about which laptop to buy. All along I thought I was already set at buying an Asus Eee PC 1000H but when I received an email from my father-in-law that there is an HP Pavilion on sale (14.1" Pavillion with Core 2 Duo technology, 3GB of ram and 160 GB of hard space for $ 499) for the Black Friday sale, I immediately bit into it.

The reason is because I was thinking that I won't be able to purchase that here. Even though the specs given were not very specific I just assumed that it's got high specifications because of some clues, like being a Core 2 Duo, and having a 3GB memory. Even if I don't know the processing speed I just assumed that it's high enough.

I did some quick search from a local store and saw that most HP Pavilions cost about P40,000 to P80,000. So having it cost brought down to $499 makes it just a bit below P25,000. I guess with that decision I weighed the laptop's specs heavier against lightweight features of the other netbooks I was looking at before. Anyway, I hope my decision ends up right.

Sell Link Spaces On Your Sidebar

Hey, guys. I will be starting selling link spaces on my sidebar through It is almost a permanent link and it costs only $3 but it is only permanent until 5 other people decide to pay for the link space. When you buy the $3 link space you get to the top of the list and then move down as another payment from another buyer is made. These links are "no-follow" links so they really do not share one's Page Rank. It just increases your link's visibility.

So, in light of that, I will be moving my blog roll to another page but I assure you that I will not remove any one of my friends from the list, unless of course I don't see my link in their site when I visit their blog.

But I would like to say also that you can sell link spaces (and set the price you want) in your blog, too. Just click the link on the right side bar which looks like this and register.

Registration was so fast it took me less than a minute to be a member and log-in. After you've registered you can start adding your blog/s into their system and place the code in your preferred location and start earning when somebody advertises in your link space. You can also invite others to join and you can earn $3 for every publisher that joins through you. So why don't you click on that link in my sidebar and join now!

My First Sony Experience Is With My CD Walkman

My first Sony experience is with my Sony CD Walkman. I got it not as the first owner. It was a pre-owned CD walkman that I bought from a friend of my father-in-law.

This was something very special to me because I love listening to music, not just to entertain myself but because I studied and really appreciated good live music, and that is for being a drummer.

During the time that handy MP3 players and MP3 playing cellphones weren’t around yet, this was the best music experience available. I particularly enjoyed this Sony CD Walkman because it had this unique control system that allowed me to control the volume and select songs without having to touch the player itself.

At the end of the control system is a female 3.5mm female input which also allowed me to enjoy my music experience in my car. I remember liking the stereo system which was able to play cassette tapes that allowed me to use a cassette to CD player adaptor in my car. I also took this baby to my regular jogs around Global City, and thanks to its ESP Max feature, I didn’t have to worry about the CD skipping while I ran around.

And my music experiences with my Sony CD Walkman let me enjoy regular things anywhere. I took it when I went out jogging, driving and being some place else, listening to it while I waited or when I took public transportation sometimes. It definitely gave significance in my life just like the Sony’s World’s First Noise Canceling Portable Music Player, which will help me continue to enjoy music anywhere, anytime.

About Golf and Other Related Stuff

One of the sports I am curious about and haven’t got a chance to learn is Golf. Usually, the sport that interest me is one that is physical. I have played basketball, soccer, volleyball and have tried a bit of martial arts like aikido, judo and Kyokushin karate. But I do not limit myself to playing physical sports. I also enjoy playing chess, badminton (less physical but strenuous as well) and billiards. But I have started becoming curious about Golf.

I came across a web site about golf and it is all in German but what was interesting about this German golf site is that it claims to be the biggest German golf shop and that they offer a full range of brand names on golf equipment and accessories or anything related to golf. Stuff like golf bags, golf trollies, gloves, golf clubs, balls, training equipment, videos and the like can be purchased from their web site.

Aside from these, this online golf shop, whose domain is, also has other golf related information in their site. They offer news about golf, scores of oun going golf tournaments and information about famous golf players. In fact they have a link to pages of golf player’s profiles. That is good because those who know German can have the opportunity to read about these information and learn more about other golf players. This site also has a club fitting center and they specialize in Ping custom fitting.

So if you know German, I’m sure you would benefit from this golf web site. And if you are interested in purchasing some golf related stuff online you can also check out this web site. You can visit their web site through this domain, and I encourage you to take time to explore the other pages of their web site.

Marikina United FC 4-2 Against UST High School

Our football club, Marikina United FC, won its first game for the Third Terry Razon Copa Filipina Tournament (Third Division) last Saturday at 1:00PM and it was held at Xavier School and they went up against UST High School. Our club won 4 goals to 2. Too bad I wasn't able to join them for that game and I won't be able to join them for the next match on Nov. 30, 8:00AM at the same venue against Xavier FC. I look forward to the other matches and as I looked at the schedule, I will be able to play on out third match which will be against De La Salle Zobel.

Below are pictures from last year's tournament.

It's me and the rest of our Marikina United FC under coach and club manager Jun Caceres.

Tired of Watching What You Eat?

Have you ever heard of the place Hotrocks? It is a grillery near Eastwood City, Libis along C-5 and they serve good steaks. But eating the there last night made me aware of how I should start being careful about eating too much meat and fatty food. Especially as I have begun learning about detoxification through a web site I set up called Total Detox and through a health supplement site, This site is all about ChitoGenics Weight Loss with Hoodia or Green Tea, Appetite Suppressant Patch, Detox and Cleanse Nutritional Digestive System Supplement - New Life Products.

It is important to eat healthy and sometimes eating healthy feels like I need to cut down on some real delicious food. But with assistance in detoxification and with the help of health supplements from ChitoGenics, stirring clear from food you like doesn’t have to happen.

ChitoGenics has products like the ChitoGenics Hoodia Formula which is a weight-loss management aid. Their site claims that it isn’t a magic potion or a quick solution that will make you lose weight in the blink of an eye. ChitoGenics Hoodia Formula is a revolutionary weight loss pill that an help users lose weight effectively by preventing fat absorption, suppressing one’s appetite and gently boosting metabolism to help burn calories faster.

The other product I like that they have is their green tea formula. This one claims to increase one’s energy level and regulate a person’s stress hormone level. The Chitogenics Green Tea Formula is said to work by again preventing the body from absorbing up to 30 grams of fat, promotes the fat burning process by safely increasing a person’s metabolism and regulates the Cortisol level giving maximum weight-loss.

This web site has other products aside from these and you can check them out and learn more about the other products at Visit this website now.

We Were at the 2nd Philippine Homeschooling Conference

Yesterday, my wife and I attended the 2nd Philippine Homeschool Conference Helod at Christ's Commission Fellowship. The speakers were Pastor Peter Tan-chi, his wife Deonna, Edric Mendoza, Pastor Bernard Marquez, Ms. Felichi Pangilinan-Buizon and Mr. EJ McKnight.

The speakers discussed foundations and principles behind home schooling and the role of parents like us in educating our children, it also focused on modeling, affirming children and mind mapping.

We found this conference very timely as we are planning to start homeschooling our three-year old next year. And through this conference, we have actually considered not just homeschooling him for a year, which was our initial plan, but for a longer period even.

We are still in the process of scouting for programs to use but right now we are bent towards using School of Tomorrow (formerly known as Accelerated Christian Education) materials. We hope that we would be able to impart to our child a strong love for God and His word and help build his character up as we homeschool him.

Thanks for the Movie Premiere, Nuffnang!

The Movie Premiere of Burn After Reading held last Tuesday, November 18 sponsored by Nuffnang in cooperation with Viva Entertainment Inc and Robinsons Movie World was great! Not the movie, but the event! I know that it has been a few days since this event that I am about to blog about has passed, but I just couldn't keep myself form blogging about it.

This isn't a movie review so I won't write much about Burn After Reading. I want to congratulate Nuffnang Philippines for the effort they exerted to grow the relationship among bloggers. My wife and I recognized some of the bloggers whose sites we bump into online (because of their avatars). I personally met a friend blogger, Sonnie, the man behind Sonnie's Porch, and his wife. I also met Geraldine Malagueno, Nuffnang Philippines' GM, and after the event met a new blogging friend, Camille.

I had my picture taken with Sonnie (center) and Ms. Jing.

It was also a bonus to have received an unexpected recognition and an Italianni's gift certificate for being the first blogger among the 70 who were awarded the movie premiere tickets.

(Charles, Ms. Jing, me and Camile)

It was, over all, a successful event because it sort of broke the ice among the Nuffnang blogging community. Congratulations and thank you again, Nuffnangers!

Here is the official link to the event, Nuffnang's First Movie Premiere.

Going to the Big Apple?

Have you ever thought about going to the Big Apple? Well, I have. In fact, I have always thought about being able to walk around the streets of New York, in the safe areas at least, or visiting the city with family or a group of friends. It is always nice to tour around with a bigger company. The more, the merrier!

In New York City, there are many ways to get around. There is, of course the cab. But when traveling with a group, one of the best ways to travel is through New York Bus Charter. This is a company that uses the domain and provides charter transportation services for touring groups. It doesn’t matter if the size of the group is not so big, like 9 people, or as many as 57 passengers. This service provides buses to any destination. In addition to that, their vehicles are environment friendly.

Aside form these, they also provide excellent service, claiming to provide safe, on-time and courteous staff, customer assistants and drivers. They pride themselves of great luxury coaches which are climate controlled and complete with amenities to make everyone comfortable. So when planning a trip to New York, visit this web site first to secure your transportation needs.

High Hopes?

I don’t’ want to get my hopes up again but I think I might have a chance to get an Asus N10J. My in-laws e-mailed us about the early Black Friday sale and I am hoping that the Asus N10J will be on sale. I like this netbook far better than Lenovo S10, MSI Wind and Asus Eee PC 1000H because it has a dedicated 256MB graphics memory, which is like having a video card for a desktop, compared to having just a dedicated or integrated graphics memory which the other laptops have. I just hope that it will be put on sale and with a great discount. If not, then I would have to settle for the Asus Eee PC 1000H

Our Three Generations

I am looking forward to this holiday season. And for many Christmas holidays I have always hoped to celebrate them with my dad around. Being based in Davao and having a weird schedule in the company he is in has really kept him from being around this past three years. And after what happened last year when he had signs of a stroke and almost had one, I have really hoped for him to retire and settle down. But, I guess he doesn't want to and I just hope that for this holiday season he would be around. That would be cool to have three generations together, my dad, me and my son.

Second MissionsTrip to Palawan

This January, our organization, Breaking Point Foundation, will be returning to Puerto Princesa, Palawan for another missions trip. Compared to our trip last August, we hope that on this trip we would be able to present our program to more students. We are currently coordinating with our partners in Palawan and talking about stuff we will be needing like accommodation and transportation similar to airport shuttle rides.

There is a web site that specializes in providing affordable, on time and safe shuttle services. provide transfers between JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Airport. Those needing JFK or Newark Airport Shuttle can have the assurance of daily operations that feature twenty-four hours, seven days a week online reservations, on time and reliable service, customer service assistance in every terminal, a large fleet of transport vehicles that can accommodate four to fifty-six passengers but have separate luggage compartments and have upholstered seats and good air conditioning or heating (whichever is appropriate). They have links in their site to special offers, airport shuttle ride fare quotes and tours and attractions.

How nice it would be to have this kind of service on January. But of course, it will all depend on the funds we will be able to raise for the missions trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

I Like Mondays

Yes, contrary to many hate statements or feelings against this first work day of the week, I, on the other hand, love Mondays. Well, it's not just because I like going against the mainstream (what they used to call the punk's attitude in the 80's), but I do sometimes on certain things, but simply because I have my day off on Mondays. Yes, I get a chance to relax my mind and not think of work, or at least I try not to. It is also a time that I am able to spend it at home (the whole day) with my family. So, to everyone out there, have a happy Monday!

An Interesting Sport to Learn

When it comes to sports I am not one who would not dare learn something new. I have played a variety of sports and have played skillfully and above average after a few tries at them. I have played basketball, volleyball, soccer, badminton, judo, aikido, billiards, swimming, table tennis and a little bit of tennis. One sport that I am curious about is golf. I find that sport very interesting and challenging.

There is a German web site that is also an online golf shop. This online golf store offers a variety of products related to golf and carries a full range of items of all golf brands. Aside form golf products, this web site also provides golf news, scores, updates and information about golf players. They also have a club fitting center and their specialization is Ping custom fitting.

Among the sports web sites that I have visited in the internet, this web site is one of the easiest to use. provides easy access to their other web pages. That is something that make a web site user-friendly, aside from their great product offerings.

Perhaps when the time and the opportunity comes for me to learn and play this sport this web site would come in handy. For now, maybe all I could do is read about golf and watch how good the pros are at playing it.

Trying Something New Tonight

Tonight I will try out something new. I purchased a hosting account which includes add-on domains feature. This will enable me to set up websites for most of the domains that I have invested in these past few months. These are sites under the category of travel, shopping and business. I have already began setting up sites for some domains related to health and finances but this will be the first time I will be using a hosting account that has add-on domains enabled. I usually am real focused when trying to learn and setting up such things and that is quite difficult at the moment with my wife being sick and all. But I am excited about this new thing that I will be venturing in. I hope I would succeed in setting the sites up and bringing traffic to them. This is actually an attempt to expand our online business.

Getting Over A Scratch On My Car

A few weeks after seeing the first long scratch on the edge of our car's right front fender I have finally gotten over it. But, I had to contact my Tito Adolfo, the one who needs to be credited for the nice paint job on it, and he replied through text message that he will schedule a time to visit the car and check what needs to be repaired so he can estimate how long and how much it would take to work on it in his spray booth in Malabon. I hope that it won't cost much and I am not that in a hurry to have it worked on. I'm sure when it get fixed it'll get my hopes high again but will be quickly be disappointed by another new scratch or dent.

Spying Over Burn After Reading

It has been a long time since I have seen a movie in a movie theater with my wife. And I am hoping to get a chance on November 18 to see The Burn After Reading Movie Premiere organized by Nuffnang in cooperation with Viva Entertainment Inc and Robinsons Movie World. It will be a great time to have a date and also a chance to meet and be with other co-Nuffnangers. But of course, that would depend on who the first 50 bloggers to be chosen for this free, by invitation only event. But, I am taking my chance.

Our First Haircut Together

My son and I about to get our haircut together

Yesterday my wife, my son and I went out and Jed, my three-year-old boy, and I had our first visit to the barber shop together. My wife and I usually are the ones who trim his hair but we decided to try and get his hair cut by a barber and we did it together so he wouldn't get scared. He did get scared at first, especially when the barber used the electric shaver on him, but seeing the other barber do the same to me kept him from getting more scared. And after about a minute of not really feeling any pain he started warming up to the barber.

Asus Eee PC 1000H, Lenovo S10, MSI Wind Reviews

My family and I went to SM Marikina to get a few groceries and buy some photo paper so we went to the mall's Cyberzone. As we went there, I couldn't keep myself from looking for an Asus N10J. But instead of finding the Asus N10J what I found was the Asus EeePC 1000H.

Let me say first that all netbooks I'll be mentioning in this post are the ones that carry the Intel Atom N270 processor. Now, with that aside, let as start by comparing Asus EeePC 1000H with the MSI Wind and the Lenovo S10. Below are the specifications of what I have found and their prices.

The source is from a local computer store in the Philippines, but there are links below to reviews from one web site using a single method to compare Asus Eee PC 1000H, MSI Wind and Lenovo S10.

Asus Ee PC 1000H specifications and price:

* 1.6GHz N270 Intel Atom Processor

* P20,999

The source of these specifications and prices are from the same store. One additional thing to note - the store that provided this information offers and upgrade option: ...all Intel Atom powered netbooks purchased between October 1, 2008 and December 30, 2008 is eligible for a chassis upgrade (charge is based on difference in prices between the new chassis and the original chassis) to handle New Intel® Atom™ 330 platform, the dual core Atom processor. I am still about to explore what this means and I will be doing so before I make a purchase this December.

Below are links to reviews using the same standards courtesy of

Asus Eee PC 1000H review
Lenovo S10 review
MSI Wind review

Based on the reviews, I read that Asus Ee PC 1000H had the best performance. I guess that's why it is the most expensive among the three netbooks. So far, after looking out for the best netbook that carries the Intel Atom, so far, my mind has changed and I plan to buy the Asus Eee PC 1000H (a cheaper 1000HA model will be coming out soon which is the same netbook without the bluetooth and the n wireless capability).

But if I had more dough I would choose the Asus N10J for its longer battery life and dedicated 256MB video memory option.
