Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars


I first learned this beautiful song from the tweet of Bubbles Paraiso, a sexy celebrity here in the Philippines who is also a blogger.  And she's right, this is damn cheesy and I just love the lyrics and the melody soooooooooooo much. How I also wish, someone (soon) will sing this song for me. Check-out the video and sing the song with the lyrics below.


Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they’re not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day

Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so, sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say

When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change
Because you’re amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while

Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are
Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she let me
Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it’s so sexy

She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day
Oh, you know, you know, you know, I’d never ask you to change
If perfect’s what you’re searching for then just stay the same

So, don’t even bother asking if you look ok
You know I’ll say
When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change

Because you’re amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are

The way you are, the way you are
Girl you’re amazing, just the way you are
When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change

Because you’re amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are. Yeah

Interesting Business: Make Money from your Cars and Pick-up Trucks

Making Money by providing services using your cars or other vehicle is an interesting business my friends and I have found while we had our trip in Bohol.

We thought that travelling from A to B in Bohol is just easy because there are jeepneys and taxis you can always find like here in Davao. But when we already shared to my friend's cousin our itinerary we were shocked when we learned that it's difficult to realize everything what we've planned. There's just not enough jeepneys and taxis there and it will take you that much time if you will wait for the next public transportation to pass. If there is, it is always loaded.

But there's a good alternative and it was to rent a van. We paid P3,000 for whole day of travelling and gas and driver's fee are already inclusive. Worth it right? My only little comment is only in the aircon. I hope it was working properly. Hehehe...

Nevertheless, I am still amazed with this kind of business. Your main cost will only be filling up the gas. And you can charge a flat fee for a job depending on the amount of work involved and then charge an amount per mile that takes into account how much gas you will use as a result.

In fact, our neighbor is starting this business. They've made their pick-up truck to look good as possible and have even bought tonneau cover for it. And few days ago, I also learned that Henry (my blogger friend) has this business too. Bongga! How I wish I also have a pick-up truck or other vehicle so I can venture into this business.

Read Car Reviews and Green Car Reports

Hyundai Tuscon
It probably takes you years saving money to finally have the amount to buy your dream car Hyundai Tuscon. Or perhaps, you just got an approval from the bank of your car loan which sooner or later will be a deduction to your monthly salary. Or if you’re well off enough, you can just buy a car anytime.

But still, they are hard earned money. And you wouldn't want to invest it into something that you will soon regret right?
