I know this is late news about the Miss Earth 2013. The coronation night was held last Saturday night here in the Philippines. I was not able to watch the show because I was busy working on my lost blogs. I have mentioned it on my previous post. You can click the details here. Anyway, I first heard that Miss Venezuela won the title on Facebook. It was one of my friends who posted about this prestigious beauty pageant. Miss Philippines didn’t make it to the top, but at least she did all her best. There were 80 participants from different countries and being on the top 8 was already impressive for me.

For the past few days, I was so depressed because of my blogs in Wordpress. Six of my blogs were down because of the server. I bought my hosting from a reseller and not direct to the company. I had been using her service for almost three years, and never encountered a problem like this. I was in panicked when it was down because I have business on that blogs. I earned money from those blogs. Well, it was not only me who got panicked. All of us who are under with her service were so disappointed, and we can’t do anything but to wait for her to fix our blogs. In addition to that, it was hard to communicate with her because of our time difference. She is living in the USA, and I am here in the Philippines. She sleeps when we are awake, and vice versa. And because of this, I patiently waited for her for one whole night, and I even posted on my Facebook wall that I need a big bucket of coffee for I don’t have planned to sleep that night. And last night, (Saturday) I supposed to watch on TV the coronation night of Miss Earth 2013, which was held here in the Philippines, but my host provider contacted me, and she said, she started making me a new cpanel. It was like music to my ears when I heard this. I was so happy because I can now see my blogs. I have waited for a couple of hours and finally she told me to install all my blogs on my cpanel. The good thing is, I have exported the xml files of each blogs from Wordpress, and I saved it to my computer. She gave me instructions on how to do it. I am not a computer geek, but with her help, I did it successfully. The only problem is I can no longer retrieve the sidebar links from the advertisers who pay me monthly. I lost them all. So, it means, no more money every month from them. Anyhow, I am still happy that my blogs on Wordpress are now live, even though, I also lost the template which I bought from a friend. Now, I have to work on it like installing another template that fits to each niche. I am actually so tired now, but this is where I get money, so I have to work for it. Anyway, thank you so much Ma Belle for helping us to get back our blogs in the World Wide Web. Thank you for your generous time.

I was sitting in front of the computer yesterday morning when suddenly, my computer chair was shaking. I thought I was just dizzy because I had a short sleep the previous night. But then, the shaking becomes stronger, and I have confirmed that it was an earthquake. I ran outside the house and I just left the laptop open. I heard people yelling, and they went outside of their homes too. The clothesline in the yard was swinging from left to right. Our Christmas tree was also swinging, and some of the Christmas balls dropped on the floor. I was so nervous because my son was at school. I was worried because their classroom is an old building, and they are on the second floor. It was just a quick earthquake, but it reached to 5.7 magnitudes. We are just lucky because it was not as bad as in Bohol and Cebu when the earthquake struck on these places. I was relieved when one of the teachers at my son’s school posted on her timeline on Facebook that all pupils managed to go to the open space or ground of the school. I have heard from the news that the epicenter of the earthquake was in Mati, Davao Oriental, which is quite far from the place I live. Even so, this earthquake really made me nervous. I had a bad thought about this earthquake. Probably, it is because of what had been happening in our country this last quarter of the year. The earthquake in Cebu and Bohol was horrible, and then two weeks after the killer earthquake, the strongest typhoon struck in Visayas that took hundreds of lives. I hope and pray that this happening would never be happened again.
