SIL- Just started her own blog

This is just a quick post. My SIL just started to make her own blog. I hope you all guys/gals could visit her site “Wifey Online Diary”. She’s clueless on what’s happening in blogosphere but she wanted to try it and find her luck, wink! Thank you and have a blessed weekday ahead.

Dog passed away

Dog considers as man’s best friend. I don’t know where this saying originates but I’m totally agreed with this. We have dogs here but haven’t bred at all. One of our dogs named CUTE. Cute is one of the many ASKAL (asong kalye) or the native ASPIN (asong pinoy). Cute was with us for many years since its baby days. Cute was given to my brother by his friend.

 

For me, Cute is very friendly dog unlike the other dog we have (named PUPPY) who is super tough.  I like the idea that your dog will come to you whenever they see you coming. But Puppy will come to you and just mess you up. That is the big difference between Cute and Puppy. Cute is quiet and easy to please. I like Cute whenever we bathe her because Cute is really calm. Anyway, why I write about Cute it is because today my mother saw her lying and found out dead already. Few days ago, Cute was very weak and can’t take food anymore. We will be missing our dearest Cute. My brother buried Cute in one of the vacant lot near our house (sadness).

Anyhow, thinking about the bright side, Kyla has new bear stuffed toy all the way from Canada=). We were thinking of a name for her new stuff suddenly Kyla mentioned BEAR CUTE. Cute was dead already so she is passing the name Cute to her new bear stuffed toy.

Breaking Dawn movie

I got day off taking care of Kyla today, hahah. So I watched The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 with my two nieces. Like the previous series I enjoyed watching the story of Bella and Edward. This time they got married, the couple spends their honeymoon on a private island in Brazil called Isle Esme. Two weeks into their honeymoon, Bella discovers that she is pregnant with a half-human/half-vampire child at an abnormally accelerated rate.

As the pregnancy progresses, Bella’s health greatly weaken so Edward gives her blood as a last option. Her health greatly improves as a result, but that night, Bella goes into a very painful labor and gives birth to her daughter, Renesmee. To save Bella’s life after painful delivery, Edward injects Bella’s heart with his venom, but nothing happens, and Bella is thought to be dead.  But later at night Bella’s wounds heal and she wakes up with red eyes, as she is now a new-born vampire… 

The story ends there, wwwwaaaaahhh … we were left hanging on the story. How I wish Part 2 is here already. But as far I as know it will be released November next year. What a long waiting. Anyway, I just gave some preview of the story if you are a fan of Bella and Edward you must see this movie ;).

Samsung Galaxy Y Review

I’m using Samsung Galaxy Y, where Y means “Young” for a week. I purchased this mobile phone using my credit card. Samsung Galaxy Y is the first Android Phone of Samsung that has the lowest price ever. For less than 6T or around $150 you can avail this phone. 

First time of using:  

At first it is difficult for me to use it because I’m not familiar with touchscreen. But after one or two days of using I used to it already. I don’t encounter problem sending messages because it’s not hard to press the letter. Though I’m a little bit slow in typing my message but soon I will be familiarized. 

It has Wi-Fi already so connecting online for free is possible. I tried it already the last time I went to SM mall in our place. I already downloaded facebook application, yahoomail and some games using Wi-Fi and thankfully it didn’t put me down because it connects very well.  

Having an Android operating system is a plus because you can download application for free. Just be sure you are connected, and then just visit “market” to download numbers of application. 

It has built in camera with 2 MegaPixels. I used the camera when my digicam is not available. The clarity of photo is fine and it is easy to use. 

Right now, two colors are available, black and pink. The latter color is quite new so I chose it and beside it is girly. 

My only dilemma is opening the back cover. The phone for me is too thin which is hard for me to open the back cover. You need to take extra careful in removing it because sometimes it’s hard to open. And be sure your fingers will not scratch on it. 

Overall, if I have to rate it I will give it 4 out of 5. I am satisfied with this phone. It’s not expensive but I’m contented with my Samsung Galaxy Y

Samsung Galaxy Y

After so long of waiting, I bought my own mobile phone. Recently, I was looking for an affordable mobile phone. There are many available in the market so it’s hard for me to choose. And of course I am considering the price. So after the long hunt, I grabbed Samsung Galaxy Y or Samsung Galaxy Young. I have phone choices already but this one doesn’t belong.

So what made me decide to get this phone? The store offers BNPL or Buy Now Pay Later using credit card. I will pay it for one (1) year starting February 2012. My monthly payment is 540 pesos only. I hope I will get bucks here so I will able to pay my monthly due hehe. samsung galaxy y price Philippines

This is the photo of Samsung Galaxy Y. I grabbed from google. I think its silver in color but the one I have is Pink. The store said Pink is the latest color of Samsung Galaxy Y. Anyway, I will make a separate review about this phone and I will show my actual Pink Samsung Galaxy Y in my next post.

How is your weekend?

Last Saturday, we went to mall just to unwind. When we reached the event center the SOLCOM (Southern Luzon Command) band is performing. So, we stopped and watch their performance. I was amazed on their voice. There are 3 vocalists; two boys and one girl. They sang SM ChriSMs jingle, today’s hit, some oldies and one song ( I guess its AFP official theme song). I enjoyed the whole performance. And I must say they are really good, two thumbs up for their performance. The voices are really good. If ever they will perform again will surely watch it, just love it =).

Anyway, this morning surprised package arrived in our doorstep. Actually we are expecting package but we never expect that it will arrive as early as today. My sister said it will arrive second week of December but its arrived today. Wow, what an early Christmas presents for us here. Thank you so much to Jocson family including my sister, BIL, my 3 nieces and 1 nephew who sent the 2 boxes all the way from Canada. I will share some of the photos here or in my other blogs in the coming days ;). Enjoy the rest of weekend especially in other parts of the world =).

Now, I’m back to blogging and hopefully my problem in my travel blog will be resolve. Have a good night.

Christmas launched in SM City Lucena

Christmas launched in SM City Lucena last Saturday (November 12). Though I don’t witness the whole program but I’m able to witness the countdown. After the countdown, the red and white telon was removed to show the giant Christmas tree.  Part of this SM City Lucena invited the children of DSWD for some gift giving.

Just some updates:

  • I’m still using my sister’s desktop.
  • I already sent my lappy in the technician. I hope by tomorrow it would be usable.
  • I will back in my normal routine online if everything is fine. Thanks for the visit.

Bad Day!!!

Yesterday was the fight of Pacquiao Marquez III. Our very own Manny Pacquiao won in this controversial fight. But, I will not talk about it because for sure you watched it.

Manny wins but I’m lost, (sad),. I’m talking about my blog.  A month ago my travel blog was born. After just a month it has PR1 already. But yesterday to my dismay I got a problem with that blog. As far as I remember I added some code in my header but resulted to big problem. Last night, I opened it but can’t access and gave me errors. I’m asking for some opinions about this problem to FB group, contacted the one who made my header and sent message to the person who provided my hosting and domain. They all answered but no clear solutions. Till, my provider sent message and said he has to re-install my blog. All my posts for a month will be deleted and I guess including my PR1. The bad thing is I forgot to back up my blog. Oh, my!!!! So ladies and gentlemen; ALWAYS BACK UP your BLOG.

Aside from that I have problem with my laptop. I think it was infected by virus. Waaahhhhh, what a day??????? Right now I am using my sister’s desktop. I’m not sure if I could visit you guys but will try. I’m not comfortable using this desktop because it’s really slow.

Anyway, hope I could find good technician so I can use my laptop again and back to my regular routine online.  Wish me luck enough for crazy things like these … plsss!!!
