Blue Monday

Another delighted Blue Monday with Smiling Sally. Since today is Bonifacio Day, our national hero, founder and leader of the Katipunan movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution. He is considered a de facto national hero of the Philippines. Now I would like to share with you our National Flag. Blue color stands for PEACE.

Second was Jov author of Walk with Me and I also received EC credits from her then the last one was from Ritz of A Girl Blogger. I won a very nice Layout from her. Now I can tell that last week was my lucky week.

Blue Monday-Slippers

I saw a woman selling her slippers on the street. It was our Kadayawan Festival here so the vendors were allowed to sell anything in the middle of the street and it was closed for vehicles. When I asked the woman how much her slippers, she said Php. 70.00 pesos ($1.70 approx.). Not bad I said, so I bought one pair for my eldest son.

This meme is hosted by Smiling Sally. Head over to her blog for more Blue Monday participants.

Just another boring day.

Here comes the rain again.....

Whoa! It’s been raining here since last night and there was news that there is another typhoon coming here in the Philippines. I like rains especially at night but I don’t like storm or typhoon. My son is not happy also if there’s a rain because he can’t go out the house. He just watches TV this afternoon and I am glad that he didn’t ask me to play here on the computer. So boring even if I am here on the computer doing my rounds with my friend’s blogs and I am also tired of reading about Manny Pacquio’s victory. Haha. It’s 5:00 in the afternoon now and it’s time for me to hit the kitchen. So, see you later my fellow bloggers.

Clone Remover

Do you know how to locate duplicated files from your folders? Yes, I do now because I found a site that talks about these unnecessary files that clutter your folders and take up a lot of space. I was glad that I found this site because I have lots of duplicated files in my folders, but I was scared to delete them because I am not sure which are the original files. Sometimes, it has two to four duplicated files I saw in one folder. I am not a computer expert so I just left it the way it was, but I know that's wrong because it will make my folders full of unnecessary data or files.

This site explains well about this software that can easily locate all unnecessary files to your folders. It is a very useful software and they call it duplicate file finder. This program is created to help computer users to lessen their bulky folders and help you to delete all the duplicated data or files. The Moleskinsoft program is a very useful and user-friendly tool for everybody. So, head over to the site and read more about this software for you to fully understand how it works. Check it out now; perhaps you have lots of duplicated files in your folders. Delete them now using this duplicated file finder.

Perfect Gift

Do you like perfume or cologne? I have two boys who are cologne lovers. They can’t go to school without wearing their colognes. My eldest has his own favorite cologne and perfume while my youngest has no certain favorite. If he likes the scent then that’s it as long as he smells good. All of us, including my husband, love perfumes. Every time after the shower my husband wears his favorite perfume even if he will just stay in the room and read his book. And now, the Christmas Holiday is approaching, I was thinking to have a stocking stuffer perfume for my three boys; my husband and my two kids. I am pretty sure that they will be happy for it. How about you guys, do you think perfume is the best gift for the holiday?

Food Trip Friday

A Joker Meets a Joker.

One day while I was hanging clothes in the sunshine, there was a man selling a coconut stick broom. He was yelling so that people will know that he is selling a stick broom. When he saw me, he then came closer and this was our conversation:

Man: Ma’am, broom. (In an excited happy tone)
Me: Yeah, I know its broom. (continue hanging our clothes)

Man: (scratching his head) Ma’am, what I mean is, maybe you need a broom
in your house.
Me: Oh! You will give that to me?

Man: (scratching his head for the 2nd time) No ma’am, I am selling my broom,
Maybe you need this broom to sweep your yard etc.
Me: Oh, you want me to sweep our yard? Why? You will take pictures of me?
(Deep inside of me, I want to laugh.)

Man: (Scratching his neck this time with his mouth pointing on both sides)
Oh no ma’am. I am just selling my broom and
I offered it to you hoping that you will buy my broom. That’s all.
Me: oh ok, I said. But I will not buy your broom because I didn’t know
how to sweep our floor or yard.

Man: (This time, he grinned) Ma’am, you are a great joker.
It’s unbelievable if you didn’t know how to sweep floors.
Me: Oh I am not forcing you to believe me but it’s true. (with a conviction tone)

Man: (Laughing out loud at this time) Ma’am, thank you for making me laugh
because I didn’t know how to laugh if I am not drunk, hahaha.
Me: (I was shocked of what I’ve heard but I was able to hide it)
Oh really? Good for you if I made you laugh.
You know laughter is a good medicine.

Man: (Grinning) Oh, my wife will disagree with that. For her, laughter is a sign
of disaster because when she hears me laughing that means I am drunk again.
Me: Oh I see. (was thinking he's a little insane)

Then my eldest son came and he told the man not to talk with me because I am just making him a good time. And the man said, it is okay because he’s also making me a good time. Lol.

Believe it or not. Last Part

This is the last part and again if you are new here, read first the first and second part before reading this last part. Thank you.

The lights were starting to fade off when the rock closes like a door. I was alone again. I went back to the boat and drove it again. The boat was running so slow and then I heard somebody calling my name. I looked around and was trying to figure it out if that was really my name. And yes, somebody was calling my name and I can recognize their voices. It was my mother and my mom’s sister’s voice. I hurriedly stand up the boat and because I was so excited to hear my mother’s voice and my aunt’s voice, the boat was swaying and I fell to the water down deep. It was dark under the water but I can see the bottom of the boat so I swim going up and trying to reach the boat. I successfully reached the bottom of the boat but when I wiped my face with my hands just to released the water on my face, and when I opened my eyes, I was on my bed at the hospital. The nurses and doctors were around me and they were doing something to my body or maybe they were doing something to make me live again. Until now, I am still wondering if that was only a dream or I was there already but it was not yet my time. I told my mother and my aunt about what had happen while I was sleeping and I felt that it was real. My aunt told me that the people I saw were the souls of people and trying to recognize me if I am their close relatives. Luckily, we don’t have yet a close family who died at that time. My aunt said, if one of those souls recognizes me, he or she might invite me to join with them and with that I can no longer get back to the world where I live right now.

This is my unforgettable experience in my whole life. I thank GOD that he gave me a second chance to live and whatever trials that I had in the past or will have in the future, I know GOD is always there for me.
