Philly Cheese Stick Pizza at the Old Spaghetti House

Philly Cheese Stick Pizza, The Old Spaghetti House
Parang ang sarap kumain ng pizza ngayon. Namiss ko tuloy itong Philly Cheese Stick na natikman namin sa Old Spaghetti House sa SM Cebu. Pagod na pagod kami that time after a long walk from Taoist Temple kasi hapon na ng dumating kami at hindi kaagad kami nakahanap ng taxi pauwi. So naisipan naming magdrop by muna sa SM at kumain. Naghanap kami ng makakainan na hindi namin nakikita sa Davao at hayon, napunta kami sa The Old Spaghetti House. 

Isa ito sa mga inorder namin at ito ang pinakamasarap. Ito ay 255 pesos at good for 2-3 persons.

Swimming Lessons Plan and Scuba Diving in Sharm El Sheikh

I have a phobia for water which was brought by a childhood experience of almost drowning. That's why every beach getaway that we have, you can always see me swimming just near the shoreline. And every water sports competition that I am invited to, I always declined. But still, I want to overcome this fear especially that I am not getting any younger.

So now, I am planning to enroll in swimming lessons already and try water related sports like scuba diving. The latter, it's my dream that I experience it in Sharm El Sheikh Holidays. I've learned that the said place is the most extraordinary diving destination in Red Sea, Egypt. And you can find a lot of amazing coral reefs and shipwrecks also.

Relax and Unwind

Are you feeling tired, stressed-out and irritable lately? Are you having problems with you concentration and now performing uncommon errors? Or have you noticed the general drop in your work performance? Do you always yawn and feel that you need the urge to stretch and move about?

Then you need to take a break and relax. If you ignore these early signs, it could impact heavily not only in yourself but also of the people around you. So, it is necessary that you find time and space to relax even 20-30minutes per day. (Preferred is two or three times a day).

There are lots of ways on how to do it, just find what works best for you. As for me, here's what I do:

a. sleeping or taking a nap
b. taking a shower/bath
c. watching movies/tv series

Of the three, I find taking a shower/bath - the most relaxing. I spend more than an hour everyday doing it. It would even be better if I have my own hot tubs spas.

Remembering my Habal-habal experience

Everytime I read or heard about motorcycles, there's just one funny and scary experience that I will never forget. It is on the first time that I have tried riding in a Habal-Habal with my friends as the passengers. 

Habal-habal
Habal-habal is a popular mode of transportation in the mountainous areas and hinterlands of Visayas and Mindanao. It is made of just a single motorcycle used for public hire in the Philippines. In some provinces, they even have Skylab - that is where they put a board across the seat or a platform around the bike to hold more passengers

How to disable Start-up Applications

Sometimes when we installed programs in our computer, we overlooked the option where we disable them during start-up or for some, they just automatically adds up in our start-up apps. So everytime we boot our PC, it just runs slow and will only frustrate us. Like in my case, this Twitter Traffic Bot software just bugs me that I needed to disable them. Here are the steps:


a. Click Start and find the command prompt Run.
b. In the command prompt, type msconfig

c. Find Start-up Menu and unchecked the program you want to remove.  (see first image, I have checked the programs that I wanted to remove)

Shop at HerRoom

It's a natural characteristic of a woman to be vain. Because we want to beautiful in the eyes of others most especially to guys and we want to feel good about ourselves too. So don't wonder if you always find us looking at the mirror and are obsessed with our bags, shoes, clothes, accessories, make-ups, hairs, nails and even lingeries.

wacoal bras, vanity fair brasThe latter, it’s a foundation of every woman’s wardrobe that can give us an unimaginable self-confidence. Whether they are vanity fair bras, camisoles, a shapewear or any. All the more when they are chosen from a good store where lingeries are beautifully made, comfortable and of good quality. Like this Wacoal Petite Contour Bra 75380 which I found from HerRoom. See image left. It belongs to Wacoal bras that are specifically made for petite women.

Here's a little detail of the product which I truly love:

It creates an elegant silhouette under blouses and knits, it has seamless sides for a smooth look under clothes, the cups are just padded enough to prevent show-through and provide great shape, but not so much that they are bulky or uncomfortable. 

New LSS: "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon


WOW! I just can't get this song out of my mind. And I have been playing You're so Vain for 8hrs already. And these lines?  " You're so vain. You probably think this song is about you. You're so vain. I'll bet you think this song is about you. Don't you, don't you" - I just love it.

Just want to shout this out to this someone who have hurt me so bad. You know who you are.

Trivia: The identity of the lover in this song has been a subject of debate for over 30 years.


You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot

You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed
That they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave

But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams
They were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun

Well, you're where you should be all of the time
And when you're not you're with
Some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and....

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you

Don't you? Don't you?

PayPal and Unionbank EON ATM Replacement Card Helpful Tips

Few days ago, I've made a lot of discoveries with Unionbank EON ATM and PayPal. They are actually lessons learned so I just thought of sharing it to you guys if in case you still don't know about these tips. A schoolmate of mine also asked me about Unionbank EON ATM Replacement card, so I'll be sharing the questions he raised too.

I got my replacement card in the afternoon of July 6 and I withdrew money last July 5. Please note that I have to wait for the completion of transaction and the activation of my new ATM. 

1. I lost my EON ATM card, can I withdraw PayPal funds while waiting for my replacement card?

Yes. I've actually tried it. But this is using the Withdraw Funds to your Bank Account since this feature will make use of your Account Number. Your account number will always be the same no matter how many times you lost your EON ATM. It is the card number (16 digits number) that will be replaced when you received the replacement card. See image above.

Remember:
For lost/stolen EON ATM cards, you need to present 2 valid ids (photocopy) and affidavit of lost. If you forgot your pin, just present 2 valid ids (photocopy). After one week, you will receive your replacement card.

2. Can I withdraw money on the same day that I received my EON Replacement Card?

No. Even if your PayPal funds have already arrived or your EON ATM has credits you need to wait 1 banking day. They are still going to activate it. If you try it, you will only get an error message saying UNAUTHORIZED USAGE.
