Shop Wise

Most of us nowadays go shopping online, and I was one of them. I was hesitant at first if shopping online is really secure until I was offered to design a market site and found out about the security. I was once a programmer and somebody offered me to create a website for her products. Designing a site is easy but to create a shopping cart is very complicated. It took me a year to finish that project with meticulous integration to merchant account. Plus the never ending support.

I found out that software packages like Shopping Cart Software comes in handy. It is good that an eCommerce Software Company focus to create an application like these, offering Merchants/Sellers a worry free solution to offer their products online. Not only that they also offer a 24/7 online support and a customizable features to tailor fit Merchant/Seller’s needs.

A user friendly and faster response time shopping cart like this does not only benefit the Merchants/Sellers but also shoppers like me.

So, check it out and click here for a free trial of shopping cart

Hot in the city

Summer is fast approaching here and you can feel the humid. If you are used to spend summer here, you wouldn’t join the bandwagon of my officemates who are rushing to plan their summer get-away. As early as today, few of my officemates were applying their vacation leave, planning ahead and calling me. Since it is widely spread in our office about my travels, my phone wont stop ringing, my room is always full every lunch break and my officemates keep on asking my advice on where to go.

Europe and Asia are the best pit-stop. Since I have list of contacts and friends from my travels, they were asking me about the right contact person or agent or ask my view on certain places. There’s no problem helping them out, but they are divided into sub-continents. So I advised them that I will concentrate first to those groups planning to tour Europe.

Italy is the most nominated among couples or partners. So I recommended Venice or Florence. For partners who wanted a romantic escapade, I told them to look for Hotel Venice so that they can secure an accommodation first. Then I recommended Hotel Florence for my officemates who loves the renaissance. I also suggested Rome apartment if incase they want to stop by in the Capital city of Italy.

All of them were ecstatic when they checked out the site and told me about the usefulness of the information, maps, tours availability and photos they got. Aside from that, they can hop-in from one city to another without getting lost.

I was so relieved. At least I was able to help them out. One down, more to go.

Power of Software Evolution

With the new software and modern technology that comes nowadays, who wouldn’t grab any software tools that come in handy?

I used to remember my college days wherein my first Programming subject was BASICA. It was so hard before how to make your program move, blink and change color using println, writeln and so on. Then another project to create a Calculator using Assembly Language. It was dreadful days in my college days.

Now, software scattered and offers a ready-to-use program - be in accounting, architecture, engineering, nurses, games and scrapping. Yes, I love scrapping my pictures. I could make dull digital photos into lively one. Using Photomix and Photoshop, I could mix and match different freebies, templates, layouts, embellishments and a lot more.

Here’s some sample of my works:

Tin-tin, TK, Ody and KU

An Invitation

I received a tempting invitation from a childhood friend, Joanne, who is getting married soon. A friend whom I grew up with and we were even tagged as twins. My mom and her aunt used to buy clothes exactly the same for us. So just imagine the stares we have got from others. Both of our families became close until my family decided to let them moved in our house since they were only two (Joanne and her aunt). Our neighbors even thought that we are related to each other but the day has come that we have to say goodbye. Joanne’s petition from her mom came and she must join her in Greece. My mom and Aunt B were so sad then Aunt B decided to return to her province.

That was the past, now Joanne is getting married and inviting us to fly to Corfu and witness her grand wedding. The offer is so tempting especially when my friend enumerated Corfu’s town ideal tourist spot. What I like most is the Mt. Pantokrator and the sandy beaches. She really knows how to entice me and my adventure clock is ticking again.

Hmmm, another travel, another adventure and another budget. I must plan it wisely since the wedding date is on February next year, so I still have time to save.

Fishing Time

It's fishing time once again.

My boyfriend and I are addicted to this hobby. This month is the time to catch big fish. Everynight we are at the port to catch fish (7pm to 12am) except during weekends. Imagine the waiting hours we spent there just to catch one and we are rewarded enough to have it.

Below is the big fish that we caught the other night. I dont know the name in english but definitely it's not a catfish. Take a look how big it is and space it occupy in my sink. It's a Sikel fish in Arabic.

One more Chance

Shopping is the best medicine. That is our motto. My cousin is my business partner in crime when it comes to shopping. We love to shop. Whenever SALE season is coming up, expect us to be there with our handy credit cards. Our shopping spree was shortened when my cousin migrated in California and I am here in the desert. Through chats and calls, I found out that my cousin continued her shopping spree and even engaged for higher loans like personal and auto loans. Due to unexpected problem that arises from my cousin’s family, she became a delinquent payer and worst, tag as a bad creditor.

Having a bad credit loans history, my cousin’s credit card was all put on-hold. What a bad credit credit cards.

After some years, my cousin was able to free from all her debts and was even given another chance to rebuild her credit history image. Thanks to company like badcreditoffers.com. She was able to lift her spirit and start a new life.

Government confirms

Today’s news (in Gulf News) regarding Panadol Extra hoax story is uplifting one. It’s good to know that UAE authorities acted upon on this story about the ‘truth’ regarding the medicine and people from the manufacturer verified that the news circulating in email/texts are not true. I was so relieved since this medicine has been my companion for 4 years every time I had headache or flu. Not only that, doctors here always recommended this medicine, that’s why I depended too much especially living in this extreme country.


To UAE Ministry of Health, another round of applause!!!

Newest member of PPP

I started blogging since 2004 and got laid back last year due from work. Eventhough I was away from blogging world, I still keep in touch with my blogging friends through chat or email. I heard PPP then because my friend Remeline became an active member. Only this month that I was persuaded by Tita Ann to join and try it. She told me that since I’m back in blogging world, I might as well make money from it.


I thought about it and joined PPP. I like blogging and the sponsors contacting me can relate on my interests in blogging. I was really thankful to my friends who give me good insights regarding PPP. I gained new friends and I found out that sponsors contacted PPP members soonest time. So you don’t have to wait for long if your post have been approved or not. Well, either approved or not, don’t be frown, it’s still a post. Take it in positive way. To make money from your post, be fair in promoting your sponsors and be good on your write-up.

On my part, I’ll save my earnings and contribute some to charity.

What are you waiting for, join us and be a member.

Safety First

A year ago, a group of inspiring Filipino Safety Officers and Engineers decided to form a group for all Pinoy in Dubai and then seek my help to create a web site for them. I thought they were not serious but before i knew it, they immediately bought a domain name for them.

I created a simple site, knowing that they will not pay me...hehehe. That's true, it's gratis/free/thank you...knowing i spent time for that...hahaha...

But seriously speaking, the group was so active and became well known in Dubai. Now they spread their wings and the group widens. They even create the same group in Abu Dhabi, another Emirate of UAE.

After one year, the group have been recognized in different organizations and became little popular only...hehehe, check them out here or here.

Congrats bro'

Call Away from Home

Living alone and away from my family is very hard especially that I am thousand miles away from them. My only consolation is my mobile phone in keeping in touch with them. Part of my benefits from the company where I work for is an international plan call. Every month I have an average free rate to use and the excess will be charged to my pocket. My family scattered around the world, from Asia to Middle East to US down to UK. So you could imagine how much money I shell out from my salary every month especially if you scrutinize the bills. Plan subscribers like me will surely understand the content of the bills.




When I discovered the wonderful use of prepaid phone cards, I switched immediately. I was able to compare the usage of plan call to phone cards and I save huge amount using phone cards when calling internationally to my family. Now, I can even call my friends too.

Next Stop: France

I need a vacation! After a gruelling week of work, I decided to plan my much-awaited vacation. That’s it, I’m going to France.

Although my target month to spend my vacation is still far, I decided to layout my itinerary. The first thing I did was to look for France Hotels. Wow, unbelievable! It’s a one stop site to look for and offers hotels and maps for tourist destination. Since my first stop is Paris, the Romantic Capital City in the world, I checked Paris Hotels so that I can check a hotel room near in Eiffel Tower. Too bad, my boyfriend can't join me in this travel, so i will just imagine myself walking hand in hand with him. Arc De Triomphe and Centre Pompidou is next on my list. I need to visit Notre Dame Cathedral also to light a candle for my dad and to buy some gift for my mom. A friend of mine advises me also to check Paris Latin Quarter Hotels because they offer great views and a convenient place for tourist like me. I will try to visit The Louvre if I still have a budget and with that I need to check Cheap Paris Hotels just in case I run out of budget. I need an alternative plan for my itinerary because I’m planning to visit the southern part of France which is Nice.

Since I love the beach, I checked Nice Hotels to look for a place to stay because I heard that Nice is the leading resort in French Riviera.

Hmmm, with these plans in my hand, how I wish I could go there now.

Some photos I checked in wikipedia.

Arc de Triomphe Notre Dame Cathedral Eiffel Tower

Silent Hill

One of my psp games is Silent Hill and im addicted on that.

What interest me more is the suspense and combat with the zombies, different weapons that you can use and lot of energy drinks. Thou the game is set in a dark and foggy place, one must play in the dark to see the games at it best.

Try it and it's fun. Just be careful playing this one especially when the monster attack you and you got startled and you are with somebody who easily got scared from your reaction. My sister got scared from me. :D

Shopaholic, it's true!!!

Mind you, they really give rewarding bonus, just like today and tomorrow, there's a promotion to triple your air miles points in every purchase.

Puff it out!

I used to hate smokers, well that was before until i experienced a real life drama in my life. I was so depressed that time until i tasted my first puff...until i cant stop.

Being a smoker, i could still say that i am a responsible one in some ways. I make sure that no babies are around when i puff. I go to designated areas for smokers and i know where to put off my butts. This entry doesnt mean that i encourage everyone to try to puff...NO! If you are not a smoker, dont try it! You are lucky having a clean lungs.

Government in UAE started to implement a non-smoking place to all Shopping Malls, some restaurants, Office buildings and some public places. At first i was stunned, being used to smoke anywhere here, yet time changes and it's a good start.

I know that i need to stop this bad habit but not now especially while im in foreign land but i will... soon...

Addicted to PSP

Since i purchased this one, i got hooked on every games and accessories as well as other features that it can offer. Good thing that this site offers a wide range of updates and info for psp addicts like me. So it's not hard to keep on looking for a new game to play or an added feature.

What's more, this toy is very useful during my idle time. Instead of puffing too much waiting for nothing, psp is the good answer. It's a 5-in-1 techie toy. With features to load games, photos, music, videos, chat, internet...what more can you ask for? So goodbye now to my iPod, back to it's box. :D

Try it and you'll know what im talking about.

April Fools

Did somebody fooled you? Have you been fooled and your friends were the culprit?

Today is April Fool's Day and DJ's from radio station keep on reminding everyone to take care from crack jokes and be sport. Then i heard listeners sharing their fool's day experiece. What the heck, i dont believe on some of them, coz for me, april 1 is just an ordinary day. Well i was wrong...

Today's work was so hectic, then all of a sudden my colleague called me and informed me that one of our colleague will be terminated because of me... I was shocked and stunned. I couldnt remember anything that i have done. So i returned to my place and think. I was so sad because working here is pretty damn hard and yet someone was terminated because of me... So i talked to the person and was really got shocked when he started shouting at me... I wanted to speak and reason out until i could feel tears falling in my eyes. Then all of a sudden the team came out from the door and were all laughing at me saying....april fools...

what a life!!!
