Missed A Call?


This always happens to me!

I most of the time miss a call...the worst part is, when we do have a clue who just called us? Do we just give a call back outright? Or do we wait for that number to call us back? After all, if it was too important, they would call us back, right?

BUT, what if it was something else?!

Do we just stare at the number rocking our heads trying to guess who tried to call us?

Guess no more! I found a website that allows us to check on a number and get some information about it. Yea right, stop trying to decipher which state and city and caller is from...just log on to
Reverse Phone Registry and you get the information you need to know about the number!

It really may want to try yourself! ;)

Eid Mubarak!!!

Greetings of peace and happiness to the Muslim community!

To those who may not be familiar with it, today marks the end of Ramadaan. Eid is an Arabic word for festivity...and Fitr means to break the fast, Eid ul-Fitr means end of fasting month. I may not be so accurate in explaining it but this is what I gather with my Muslim friends.

I'm happy that the government declared this day as a holiday and that we have included Muslim festivities in our calendar of holidays...

Once again...Eid Mubarak!

May every year find YOU in good health! ;)

So Much To Do... little time!

I wanted to do Fun Monday, failed.

I wanted to do Manic Monday, failed.

I wanted to do Music Monday, failed.


Anyway, there are other things I wanted to blog about...but can't seem to find time to this is going to be quick...since I'm at work now.


Weekend was so short...but they say, if it's too short, it means it was fun! Ha, I so hope that's what it means all the time.

Anyway, Saturday I went to the mall with IT Guy...and I bought this really nice mini-skirt! LOL Gezzz...friends of Tribal Wars should laugh, because though the skirt has nothing to do with tribal wars, at the back of it, says "princess", guess what I am Princess Mariposa in our tribe...LOL But IT Guy says it's too short...yet, well, he like the "princess" thingy there, so there, I got it!

I was supposed to have dinner with other members of management Sautrday evening...then, I overslept, so I missed it! Pffft! Oh well...

I got up early mornig the next day...went jogging, then malling again! Well, I did the grocery...then lunch with IT Guy. And he saw this really nice shoes...a Cinderella-like he bought for me! WooT! I should snap photos of it soon...

Then, we had our salon thingy...and massage. Then, party! I ended my Sunday with 10 shots of tequila...I wonder if that's what made it short, eh?!

So, how was your weekend?

I still owe some peopel some I should be back really soon...wish everyone a great week ahead!!!

Friends are Gifts!

It's Thursday once again...another reminder of what a wonderful week it's been!

I missed both Thankful Thursday and Thursday Thirteen last week so I am making sure I don't miss this week...

So many 13 ideas in mind...but for this week, I am making a pause making sure I get to appreciate all the blessing I've been receiving for the past 29 years of my life.

God is good...all the time!

Below are just some of the wonderful things He graced me with for the past weeks...

(1) Somebody sent me a red dress for my birthday! Remember that birthday wish list I did? Yup, I got of the bloggers sent it to me! Thanks very much Sage! And I know somebody helped him with a big thank you to Smiley as well!

(2) An old friend whom I met and had a chance to get to know well is back...I mean, we do chat again...and it just feels good to be in touch with good friends! He always gives me a difference perspective...and I really admire him as a person. I am not to name names here...but JMD, if you happen to flutter by here...please know how much your friendship means to me.

(3) I had dinner with IT Guys friends Saturday evening, and I'd say, I really love his new set of friends at work...I mean his workplace...LOL They are very nice...very humble...and I really feel their sincerity. More than anything, I am so grateful for the friendship they give to the IT Guy, as there are times, I can't be that to him...

(4) Imagine opening your mailbox and seeing something like this --

the time passed me by
the feelings always remain
silence is not change

absence does change all
acceptance may not come quick
feelings do remain

missing you I am
hard this is to say to you
uncertainty rules

happiness to you
forever will the sun shine
so the world sees you

Will it not make you stop and smile? It made me...and I'm blessed to have this friend with me...we this kind of tug of war relationship...but at the end of the day...we know we are friends and that we are there for each other. Hey, YOU, if you read this...thanks for the ' so buy that Coastal Scents and send it to me so you get another special mention! LOL

(5) Id like to thank fo0sies for all the premium points he passed me in my Tribal Wars account...not only that, he also put order in the mess, he had arranged my villages so well! Thanks sweetheart! LOL

(6) Still on fo0sies, he promised to make me a menu! Yup, he is a chef and he told me he will make a menu and will name it cool! I am so excited! What a friend...

(7) Sir Flash who had been patient in answering all my questions...including the nonsense ones! He also had been my virtual tech support every time I have issues with my pc and the IT Guy is not around.

(8) I'd like to thank Nancie for always being there for me...and for continually holding me in her prayers!

(9) Oh Jan...bless you for sending me wonderful messages...they always make me smile.

(10) To Susan, thanks for always remembering me and visiting me here. You have opened my eyes to a lot of inspire me.

My Inspiration...

For Wordless Wednesday, please scroll down
or click HERE!

Happy WORD FILLED Wednesday!

I took this photo years back in one of my travel to the US...this is an old Oak tree...

I chose this week's verse to resonate the strength of the Oak tree and my struggles at work...

I am working on some materials right now...and I plan to publish it. Maybe in the coming weeks I'd be soliciting your opinions on publishing since I know most of you are writers for life. Wish me luck! No, I don't need that, I need your prayers. :)

Misplaced Moments...

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

my whole being twist
thinking of you, i vomit
die away from me

you promise me X
now you tell me you can't X
and i'm left so pissed

you were my sunshine
but now you are more like
harmful UV rays

regret gains its strength
from delusion of hindsight--
it is a mirage

Happy Birthday Yummy!!!

I've been away from here as much as I want to be in control of things...sometimes, I just feels like it's not me behind the wheels!

Anyway, the past days has been both horrific and euphoric...but the nice thing is, I made it through...well...come to think of it, I always do! *wink

Yesterday was the IT Guy's birthday! So I took a leave from work and we had our escapade! And well, shopping again!!!

I've been shopping a lot the past days...but yesterday was my love's birthday so I refrain from stealing the moment from it was all about him. Well, it's always all about him anyway...if you get what I mean. LOL

Other than getting over 800 attacks in the Tribal Wars...things are pretty fine with me with and the IT Guy.

I just want to make a shout out here on his birthday!!!

To IT Guy --

It would bring me more joy than I can say
if you would never forget
- not even for a single day -
how wonderful you are...

in my eyes and in my heart.

I'm so often at a loss to find the words
to tell you how much you mean to me.
In my imagination, I compare you with
things like the sunshine in my mornings,
the most beautiful flowers in the fields,
and the happiness I feel on the best days of all.

You are like the to a special prayer.
And I think God knew
that my world needed
someone exactly like you.

Happy birthday....

I love you! The nicest feeling I have ever known...

Giving More than 100% at Work...

At some point in our life, we have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%...and some people commits to delivering more than 100%.

Here's a little math to help you in achieving a little more of 100% that may prove helpful in the future!


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26



8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98 % Only


11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96 % Only



1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100 %


B U L L * * * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

Ha! So,'t promise me more than 100%, because more likely, you are just giving me the 3% extra...and if that is something that gets you to the top...well I certainly don't need it...because bull***t may get you to the top, but it doesn't keep you there too long - let us learn from the presentation below! :p

My Virtual Pastimes!

a fan of poker
i am, because playing it
gives me joy and fun!

poker is fun, and
a game for everyone, just
deal cards one by one

go get the high hand
pair, two pair, three of a kind
royal flush is mine

sometimes, you can bluff
if your cards aren't good enough
just don't bet too much

poker is easy
only a day to learn, but a
lifetime to master

let's shuffle and deal
visit casino online
virtual play yet real!

* * *

So there folks! I've posted it! LOL

Some of you knows that I have several virtual is that text-based online game, Tribal Wars and the other one is casino online games, mostly poker!

I used to play poker a lot! Most of the time for fun and leisure...but since I started working on a night shift, I have not gone to the casino here for 2 years! Adding to that is when IT Guy got appointed to government office, that banned him from going there too...

But, there are no limits in possibilities so they I just do it online. ;) I don't have to dress up...don't have to get into the car...I can do it in the convenience of my home in my nigh dress... Yes, I go to online casinos and play there! So far, things do work for me...

Also, it is good for people who are still learning the art of the game...just do them in moderation and for fun! :p

Happy Friday everyone...

Job Performance Reviews!

Last week, I did my procrastinator's creed and I find it very entertaining...light and it felt good!

This week has been a bit jumpy for me...and things are just a little horrific at work. Though I'm thankful for getting a good job offer, I'm still praying for God's wisdom and guidance.

The job offer is about 2-3x of what I'm earning...they offer good benefits and all, yet I have to move to Manila, which is in another island.

IT Guy is not so agreeable with it since he is worried on how I will do my laundry and all...LOL I'm never used to any household chores...and I've always lived with my parents!

IT Guys is also working on his papers to move to that is another option for me...for us. If I get to talk to that potential employer in Sydney, I'll have a different mix of options...and it will be more confusing!

I'm just to grateful that will all things happening, God has not failed to constantly support me by giving me options...even if it is just to point to me that despite all things are still better with me.

So, I will choose to worry on these things tomorrow or next week...or I'll just cross the bridge when I get there?

So for today, I'm doing another "fun" post....

Ever wondered what your boss puts on your performance appraisal? These are thirteen random actual quotes taken from job performance reviews, which I have personally picked to amuse myself with the people I'm working with!

1. I would not allow this employee to breed.

2. This associate is really not so much of a has-been, but more definitely a won't be.

3. He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.

4. A room temperature IQ.

5. Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it together.

6. A gross ignoramus - 144 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus.

7. One-celled organisms outscore him in IQ tests.

8. Donated his brain to science before he was done using it.

9. Has two brains: one is lost; the other is out looking for it.

10. If brains were taxed, she'd get a refund.

11. If you give him a penny for his thoughts, you'll get change.

12. One neurone short of a synapse.

13. Some drink from the fountain of knowledge, he only gargled.

Everyday is the best time
to give thanks!

My Virtual World

Another beautiful Monday once again my dear folks...and I don't want to miss my Busy Monday tradition this week....I want to make a good impression for September! LOL

Gattina is hosting this week's Fun Monday, and how I love her theme!

She said --

As your host today, I just want you to show us a picture of your blogging place ! Your room or bed or whatever space(s) or place(s) you have to write your posts, and I hope I will be able to see a lot today. Sometimes when I read or write a comment I try to imagine the place where my blog friend is sitting right now but it is very difficult. So today I hope my curiosity will be satisfied.

I will attempt to satisfy you Gattina!

Below is my Virtual Window...this is the one in my bedroom! Though this is not actually facing my bed...yet, this is in my private space!

You see there my wireless phone...and other stuff! Don't be deceive by its's not like that when I'm there! LOL

Below is my Home Office!

Ha! Yup...yup!

I don't like to work in my room...but I can blog in my room...LOL

So for anything that really needs some pencil pushing...virtual or not...I stay here. It is something psychological I guess...but my mind gets to be in working mood when I'm here!

And finally, you see here my blogging space extension...yes, IT Guy's place!

I usually invade his place...LOL

So there you have it...both mine and IT Guy's!

I'm not quite ready for Manic Monday today, yet, I'm sure to join the upcoming Manic Monday Carnival on Sept. 15, 2008.

And since Mondays will never be complete without any touch of music...I'm making all in one post for Manic and Music Monday...
