Make the Best Crafts with Katia Triana Yarn

by , in
Women since the olden days have been fond of hand-made crafts with the use of needle and thread as part of their work or just a plain pastime when they have nothing to attend to like the usual home chores.

As an example, some women prefer to design and make blouses by means of crocheting. Every now and then, fashion trends come and go yet part of it are those blouses made of yarn. Some have thought of coming up with some designs to produce hand gloves, handbags and even a scarf.

With the coming of the new technology, only a few women are engaged in such kind of handmade crafts. They prefer to sit in front of their own computers, gadgets, or simply play with their own mobile phones.

Promenades are part of a young man and woman’s life. It is an occasion likened to a metamorphosis of a butterfly for teenagers who would embrace maturity – a ceremony of coming out like butterflies from cocoons. Since the olden times, dances and balls were a venue to present the new young lads in the community.

Through the years, promenades have evolved into a modernized event. Parents on the other hand are more anxious than their children in preparing for this coming event of their children. One of the main concerns of parents is how their children will look on that special day. So, an ample preparation must be made beforehand. For girls, the preparation is more strenuous. Before choosing a gown or any dress, she must consult one who is more like an expert on fashion.

Gowns are to be made months before the event. It takes more time for the gowns to be made especially if it has intricate designs like beads and other accents which could make the gown more attractive and beautiful to look at. At some instances, wearing a very attractive gown could make a girl, a head turner during the prom.

But if you plan to do away with the hassles of preparing for your daughter’s gown, you can consult an online retailer of formal wears which has been known across the nation. Dress Therapy can assist by providing a pool of stylists and customer service representatives through a call or through the internet.

by , in

With Janine Tugonon's beautiful and excellent answer (see below) to the Twitter question "Should speaking English be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe as an international ambassador?" I really thought she would be crown the Miss Universe 2012. But unfortunately, Miss USA won the said title. It's like a Home Court Advantage. :(

I am dissatisfied but the results are final and the judges have their reasons. So sad to say, we will just have to accept it. Janine wanted to win to give it to Filipinos as a Christmas gift. But it is still okay Janine because for us you are still our winner. We thank you for representing our country and for showing the universe how truly beautiful the Filipinas are. Imagine out of the 89 countries, you are the first runner-up. That's a huge achievement already and we are very proud of you.  A big congratulations to you!

The Door by Ate Gay (Lyrics and Video)

by , in
Ate Gay
If you have been watching Wil Time Big Time, you have not definitely missed Ate Gay's remarkable joke about "The Door".  It is a just a simple joke but it never fails to made me laugh every time she guested on the primetime show.

And few minutes ago, I learned through a Facebook friend's status that there is actually an official video to this. Whoah! May song na pla ito?  Wow! Sikat na sikat na talaga. I hope magkabreak din si Ate Gay tulad ni Vice Ganda. I really like him.

Anyway, check out the video and lyrics below. I transcribed the video for the lyrics kasi I haven't found the lyrics pa sa internet. I'm not sure with the 1st two words in the third line of the first verse, just comment below for the correction. :)

The door....
The door...

Minsan ako ay nasa house movie marathon ang peg
Buong gabi nagrerelax kasi bukas pa ang gate
Nanunuod, kumalabog at sa door ang tunog
kinabahan ako bigla parang mayroong dumadabog

Nakakatakot, nakakagulat
At hindi ko talaga inakala
Nakakatakot, nakakagulat
Ang nakita door

I touch the door, I touch again the door
I open the door, I open again the door
I touch the door...
The door...

Dahan-dahan nilapitan ang pinto para buksan
Nanginginig ako sa takot balahibo'y nagtayuan
Habang hawak ang pinto tinatawagan mga friends
Tuhod ko'y nalalambot at ako'y tense na tense
(Repeat Refrain)

Ate Gay, yeah...

Nakakatakot talaga, nakakashock talaga (the door)
Nakakatakot talaga, nakakashock talaga (the door)

I touch the door, I open the door
Napasigaw so I close the door
Nagulat kasi ako sa nakita ko
Pagbukas ng pinto, natakot ako
Nataranta , Di alam ang gagawin
Para bang utak ko nablack-out din
Kung ikaw kaya ang makakita ng
Sa'yong pinto ay may aswang
(Repeat Refrain then Chorus)

If you haven't seen this "The Door" joke, check out the video below also.  It is found on the latter part but it's best if you watched the whole video. Have fun!

New Payment Policy of Blogsvertise

by , in
Blogsvertise is one of the  many websites where I make money from blogging.  I've been a member of this site since 2008 and up to now I still receive tasks from them. Although it is not that abundant compared to the past years but at least I get to receive 1-5 tasks in a month. It still helps to pay the bills.

Blogsvertise, Payment Policy of Blogsvertise
Talking about payment, they have actually implemented a new policy. If you are not yet aware of this and already upset why you haven't received that long overdue payment on your account then read on...

According to their Facebook page:
Blogger payments will now be generated when your Payment Management reaches $50+. Your total payments due must reach a total of at least $50 in order to receive payment. This policy has been implemented in order to cut additional PayPal fees. Many companies similar to ours have a minimum of $100 before bloggers can receive payment. We wanted to be fair to our loyal members and did not want to make bloggers wait to reach that amount.
This new payment policy can also be found in the Help Page when you are logged in to your Blogvertise account. 

So what do you think? Is this fair enough?

Artista Academy Winners: Vin Abrenica as Best Actor and Sophie Albertas Best Actress

by , in

Congratulations to Vin Abrenica for winning as Best Actor and Sophie Albert as Best Actress for the recently concluded Artista Academy competition. They automatically become "Close-up" Ambassadors and each won 10 million pesos. WOW! The biggest prize a winner has received in a TV reality show so far here in the Philippines.

Just judging from the earlier performances, they are not actually my bets. Akihiro Blanco's acting and dancing is better compared to Vin Abrenica. The same thing applies to Shaira Mae over Sophie Albert. But since the criteria for juding is 40% accumulated average for the past weeks; 40% grades for performance tonight; 20% text votes I can't say that they will win. But regarding love teams, I prefer the Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert or "SOVIN" love team. They look good together and may "KILIG FACTOR" talaga. :)

Survivor Philippines Season 25 Episode 6: "Down and Dirty"

by , in

I've finally caught up watching Survivor Philippines Season 25. Yay! The past five episodes were not really that good. Scenes were more focused on Tribe Matsing since they never win in any immunity challenges, resulting to a tribal absorption to Denise Stapley and Malcolm Freberg.

But on its Episode 6: Down and Dirty - the show gets more interesting because the two tribes (Tandang and Kalabaw) gave up the reward challenge which is to push a large wood ball across a mud field to their goal (see photo above) for a deal. Wow! I think it's another first time in Survivor history. And guess what, the deal is to give up all the remaining rice the Kalabaw tribe has in exchange for winning the one time feast reward. A proposal made by Jonathan Penner who promised to catch fish for his tribe mates.

Fair Use Policy of Globe, 800mb limit
800 MB Limit Reached

I've mentioned in my recent blog post that I have chosen Globe Tattoo as my internet service provider because its speed is faster compared to PLDT net at Home. But later on, I found out that there are actually limit to our surfing, download, upload and others. This is because of their Fair Use Policy.

So even if you are registered for an unlisurf for a day, a week or a month - we have a limit of 800mb data subscription per day. Shocks! I really thought that I could make the most of their faster speed but sad to say, I will just have to use this connection for surfing, answering emails and not for downloading my favorite movies and tv series. I still can't terminate my PLDT Net at home subscription unless there is  a wired connection available now in our area. :(

Jodi Sta. Maria says “I am Ready” to Open My Heart Again

by , in

Kapamilya actress Jodi Sta. Maria is rumored nowadays for having some romantic relationships with young actor Jolo Revilla, Bong and Lani Revilla’s son.

Weeks ago, the two celebrities were said to be spotted in Hong Kong and Jodi was able to confirm she was there at that time but opted not to mention if Jolo was truly with her. Jodi was asked during a press conference of her current Kapamilya show Be Careful With My Heart where she is the lead star together with famed Richard Yap (Papa Chen of the defunct show My Binondo Girl).

There was that hanging question among the media and the public regarding Jolo and Jodi’s relationship status until, Sen. Bong and Rep. Lani thanked Jodi for inspiring Jolo to get on the political bid next year. Jolo Revilla is set to follow his family’s path of politics for he will run as vice-governor of his home province, Cavite for next year’s polls.

Shocks! Bakit pa ako inabot ng 2 years? Sana nagtry na kaagad ako ng Globe para hindi umabot sa ganito. Pero sabagay nakacontract din kasi ang PLDT. Buti at matatapos na this October. Hanggang ngayon kasi wala paring wired connection dito sa phase namin kaya nakaya kong tiisin ito. Imagine, from the start ang bagal talaga ng speed ng PLDT net at Home at mas malala pa ang Smart Bro. See my old blog post here 

So para sa mga Deca Homes homeowners, kung wala pa kayong wired connection. I believe ito ang mas bagay na internet service provider para sa inyo. Mas nicer pa ngayon kasi Globe is upgrading their network also to give us better speed. Yay!

Trend-Setters Love Engraved Jewelry For Its Sentimental Value

by , in
Engraved Jewelry, Lauren Klein, Custom Engraved Gifts
Hot trends come and go, but a few become mainstays such as initial jewelry. Many famous pop singers, like Britney Spears, are wearing initial necklaces similar to those found on the Lauren Klein jewelry website. Here, you will find the latest fads, like the sumptuous one-big-stone bracelets and necklaces that are so popular today.

Style magazines show celebrities wearing both of these types of jewelry in silver and gold. However, they rarely show the customized engraved messages, which adorn the backs of their most precious pieces.

What Do Celebrities Have Personally Engraved On Their Jewelry?

Special love messages are commonly engraved on gift pieces, as well as dates, mentions of momentous occasions, and the giver and receiver’s names. Like everyone else, celebrities love to see their own name in print. It provides an instant ego-boost to look in a mirror and see your own sparkling initials embedded on glistening gold or silver. Engraved jewelry, most commonly necklaces, bracelets and rings carry the same kind of instant gratification when the wearer flips over their beloved piece to read a heart-felt message.

Kris Humphries chose two Bible quotes for engraving on the engagement band that he presented to Kim Kardashian. Unfortunately, their marriage barely lasted a few weeks. Never the less, it was a thoughtful thing to do.

Gorgeous Hilary Duff is a new mother who likes to wear her baby's initial on a pendant, rather than her own monogram. Additionally, beautiful and talented actress Sandra Bullock occasionally sports a necklace charm with her initial as the focal point. Charlize Theron also wears gold and silver initial jewelry when out and about.

Several Hollywood stars have mentioned in celebrity articles that they have had inspiring messages engraved on jewelry for themselves. The Show Must Go On is a popular message engraved on many star performers’ jewelry. Customized jewelry is great for everyday wear or for special occasions like an anniversary. Engravings can signify or acknowledge anything that is personally meaningful to the wearer.

How Do You Get Jewelry Engraved?

Luckily, engraving jewelry costs very little. While highly affordable, engraving adds huge sentimental value to jewelry. Online jewelry shops, such as, carry tantalizing jewelry designed to carry a personal message or monogram. Engraved jewelry made specially for babies and children are wonderful gifts that are cherished for a lifetime. Check out the Lauren Klein jewelry website for pages full of trendy necklaces, bracelets, rings and other inspired jewelry items if you want to see the latest styles.

3 Tips to Improve Your Link Prospecting

by , in
An important part of increasing online traffic to a company website or blog involves building links with other related sites. This is an ongoing process that helps a site rank higher in Google and also ensures a steady stream of organic traffic. Link prospecting is the first main step leading to link building. The primary question that must be answered in order to move forward with the crucial process of link building relates to how to find these invaluable links. Below are some tips for improving your link prospecting results.

Utilize advanced search queries to generate more prospects

Getting started with a basic Google search is not going to generate enough link prospects to take full advantage of all the relevant links available for traffic promotion. For this reason, it is helpful to use advanced search queries for identifying numerous linking opportunities.

For example, if an Australian boating blog is what is being promoted, then a URL search is called for and it would look like this: (Boating inurl:blog/Boating blog This search will return boating blogs in Australia.

An exact phrase search represents another advanced search method. This type of search is perfect for identifying websites that are actively seeking guest bloggers. An exact phrase search using the boating example above would look like this: (Boating "Guest post"/Boating "write for us").

A wildcard search employs a filter requiring that the exact words specified in quotes with a second optional word in the position of the * are contained in the title or text of a prospective blog link. For example, searching with (boating"guest*blog) will identify any blogs using the word boating couple with any other word. For example, any blog containing the words boating equipment or boating locales would show up on a wildcard search.

Music plays a large part in every person’s life. Sometimes, it would connote a mood like mellow songs for sad moments or if the person is quite happy, one might choose to play rock or some other upbeat songs. 

Added to that, it is a better move for parents to expose children to good music and as well give them strict music training for those kids who have the potential. Recent studies show that children who are into music during their younger years are in a way creative and geared towards their mental development in the long run. 

As with piano lessons, it could be very conducive for a beginner to use the best quality and motivational equipment like that of a Steinway and Sons piano. Aside from being used to how the keys are being played in a concert-like setting, the aspirant will also be inspired to take on the lessons seriously, and from the heart.  

From a long history of quality pianos produced from the last two centuries, Steinway and Sons has found a place in the heart of every concert artist and as well as for the aspiring pianists. The very reason for this: the equipment or the musical instrument itself, aside from being a long lasting one, this specific piano brand has an exquisite sound performance like no other.

Consider a Career as a Dog Trainer

by , in
Dog Trainer
If you enjoy working with animals, it is likely that you will enjoy a career as a dog trainer

The type of training that you do is going to differ, however, depending upon your personal preferences and the type of work that you are doing. For example, there is always going to be a demand for basic obedience classes in almost any area. People are going to continue to take their dogs to those obedience classes, both to teach them the basic commands and to help them make their dogs a more intricate part of the family. If that is something that you plan on doing, it is important for you to consider the basics of the training that will take place. For example, are you going to use specific items, such as a dog place board by Dog Squad in training those animals? That may make a difference in the success that you experience, including the people that are choosing you as the instructor. 

More specific type of dog training is also available which will help in other fields. For example, canine scent work is of benefit for many different purposes. In some cases, the dog is going to detect something such as bedbugs and that is becoming increasingly popular. They can also used for other purposes, such as detecting various types of cancer or even working with the police to detect drugs or bombs. In any case, it is going to be necessary for you to get the specific instruction so that you are able to instruct the dog with what it needs to get those jobs done.

Fly Fishing: a Means of Recreation and Contemplation

by , in
fly fishing

Would you believe that fishing can bring someone into deep contemplation at the same time, enjoy the activity? 

This could be achieved through fly fishing - a method of fishing which uses the angling technique and tools that of fly rods, reels, and weighted lines. 

Placing into the rod a weightless “lure”, which could look like any organism living under the sea, can help provoke fishes to get near. If the fish devours the artificial fly in the rod then, the catch is a success. Called the “contemplative man’s recreation,” fly fishing needs great patience from a person who would want to engage in this activity which can be done in both salty and fresh body of water. 

Unlike line-fishing where you sit by the bay or at the comforts of a boat, fly fishing requires you to immerse into the water where you are to make a catch and wait for a long period of time. This means a person who would engage into fly fishing must be at ease when immersed in a body of water for a longer time. 

Also, the great discipline this hobby brings is being calm and almost motionless for several hours. Apart from that, this could be a good practice to achieve precision for this solitary hobby would entail you to be accurate in casting your rod and fly line into the water. 

If you are at a beginner’s stage, keep in mind the power of estimation. For example, a 7 foot rod can reach fishes located at a depth of 20 feet. Another tip would be that water splashing is a taboo for this would scare the fishes. So it is better to carefully cast the rod in an accurate and careful mode. After choosing a good spot and casting the rod, you can now make the fly act like a genuine organism which thrives underwater. But it does not end with that for the great challenge comes as with the waiting game.

After a long wait, if you feel the bait is being devoured by a fish, you can now begin using the fly reels in order for you to pull the line.

Kristen Stewart apologizes to Robert Pattinson

by , in

I'm not a fan of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson but I'm sad of the news circulOptions
ating about  Kristen's affair with Snowhite and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

I thought it was not true as some of the comments I've read from entertainment sites says it was photoshopped or something. But just minutes ago I read the tweet of Perez Hilton that Kristen Stewart admitted it already and released a statement which you can see below:

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.

This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

Feeler Gauges at its Best

by , in
For machinists, it could be a hard task to measure gaps which are hard to reach. Good thing there are calipers to do this job. But calipers have limitations also. So, this would be the time that feeler gauges are of great help. 

These feeler gauges come in different sizes and are used to measure gaps and slots in the parts of the machine which are deemed hard to reach. Before using these kinds of measuring gadget, first, you need to make certain or choose the right range of feeler gauges for a specific gap you want to be measured. These gadgets come in a set of ranges and the use of more than one blade to measure a gap can be possible.

Starting an Internet Business on a Minimal Budget

by , in
With so many different ways to make money and conduct business through the internet, it’s no wonder that everybody wants to have a stab at starting their own online business. While starting an online business can be done quickly and cheaply, if you don’t think it through thoroughly enough the chances are it won’t cut the mustard, and ultimately will be unsuccessful. One of the problems is that there are so many people out there trying to do the same thing, so the competition is stiff. The other thing is that many internet businesses simply don’t stand out from the crowd, and really are only worth anything as long as people use them. You only have to look at the recent sale of the Digg website. The owners were offered $200 million by Google for the sale of the website in 2008, and just four years later the website was let go for just $500,000. The lesson learnt here was that without dedicated users, this social media website became worth a fraction of its previous value.

The riches are there for people who put the hard work into an internet business, and it doesn’t have to cost that much to get up and running. As long as you have a home computer and a solid internet connection, you have the necessary tools to get started. Many of the things you need for starting an internet business can be initially obtained for free, or at a small cost. Of course, you need that amazing idea that nobody has thought of yet, but no-one is going to give that away for free!

Our Dayang Beach Resort Summer Getaway

by , in

I will never forget our summer getaway last month because of a couple of "now we know" experiences.

First off, the waiting of 2 hours at Sta. Ana wharf. I really thought that the boat would leave at 8am that's why as early as 4am we were already awake preparing for our food and things. Only to find out, that we still need to wait for the boat to be fully occupied. LOL!

Next, since we were there during Sunday. The boat didn't take us directly to Dayang Beach Resort, Talicud Island. So we stopped near Isla Reta. The only vehicle available to take us to Dayang Beach Resort is through Habal- habal (a motorcyle that will carry 2-5 persons, you can see pic here).

It's not my first time to ride in this vehicle but the experience that we had was just nerve wracking. The road going to Dayang Beach Resort was so bumpy and we were going up and down. Imagine that and we were carrying a lot of things! The first time, the motorcycle went up - my heart was beating so fast already and just when we thought that it’s over the road gets more challenging. There were small and big rocks, holes and the way up and down is not short distance. Whew! Good thing, the driver is an expert as we arrived safely. How I wished I have turn the camera on that time so you can picture out what exactly I am talking about.

Employee Management and Communication Service sites have flooded the internet. This answers the need of the company to make the monitoring easy as well as strengthen the communication between employees and unit heads in order to catch up with the market competition. But usually, these sites would tend to charge so much from the companies and subscribing to such services would only mean added expenses.

Bitrix24 comes as a solution to such problem. For businesses with 12 employees or less, this site offers a basic free package. Yes, this site offers free service for 12 and less employees along with a fully functional CRM, activity streaming where every team member gets updates as events unfold. Also included are some freebies such as calendars, activity planners, sales funnels and a lot more of other features. If incase a company exceeds the allowed number for the free package, Bitrix24 can give the best price of $99.00 per month as service cost.

Get the Benefit of Savings from Staple Coupons

by , in
At the early stage of recession in America, some wondered upon seeing a plain housewife coming out of the grocery store bringing a big bunch of commodities. The lady then confesses she has got all those items with a price cut at around 20 to 30 percent of the total amount. 

The woman is just one of the hundreds of people who never had second thoughts of availing from the benefit of discount coupons in order to save a good amount of money. These promotional practices of the stores not only help people in saving their money but in return to their companies, they get to have high popularity ratings compared to as part of the results. At this modern and technology-driven age, the strategy has now evolved into a computerized version. All the consumers have to do was to log-in to a site like the as it offers several promo coupons. It can be recalled that during the past decades when computers were not yet that popular, coupons can be found by the consumers on printed publications such as the dailies, magazines and company product brochures. Also, not all companies at that time were getting their feet going into such kind of marketing plan yet in the later years, became a trend. 

As with the process regarding these promos, at its beginning and until now, season and holiday-based are being watched for by consumers in the local scene. During these times, consumers need to cut the coupons from the materials then present it upon payment of purchases. So in short, people would need to purchase printed materials first before they could avail of the promos. Regarding the present promos like that of staples coupons at, some would require consumers to print a copy or just simply present the exact coupon code upon checkout of items to be purchased.

America's Next Top Model Cycle 18: The British Invasion

by , in

Supermodel Tyra Banks is back for the newest season of America’s Next Top Model. It’s Cycle 18 this time. This reality show is one of the most successful reality shows in the US. What makes this cycle different from the previous ones is that it is a competition between models from Great Britain and America. They call this cycle “The British Invasion”. Tyra herself chose 7 British and & 7 American girls and put them together in one house. So yes, it’s Brits versus Yanks this time. Each race will prove that theirs is the best.

There’s also another catch, the Brits were former contestants of the British Next Top Model seasons while the Americans have no experience whatsoever with modeling. That makes the Brits way ahead of the Americans since they are not amateurs anymore. And oh, I just love their English accent. It makes me think of Harry Potter all the time.

Personally, I am rooting for the Brits, particularly Ashley. I first saw her when she joined British Next Top Model, and I am more excited now that she made it to ANTM. She has a memorable face with eyes that always smiles, distinctive freckles and a great, rocking body. She has that kind of look that’s made for couture and high fashion that will click in the International Market. What I am so excited about is the fact that our very own Filipino designer Francis Libiran will be dressing the girls in one of its photoshoots also which will be aired tonight.

This cycle is totally a kick ass entertainment like we haven’t seen before. I am sure of that!

You can’t beat a bit of fresh air

Exercise is a bit of a conundrum. How can something that’s supposed to be so good for you feel so bad whilst you’re actually doing it? Admittedly, after it’s all over and the endorphins are flowing, you feel like you could take on the world. But whilst you’re on that treadmill – sweat pouring down your face, cheeks redder than a Beefeater’s smock – it certainly doesn’t feel good.

And let’s be honest, it rarely looks good either. Put Beyoncé on a treadmill for half an hour and her A-list glamour would soon start to fade, bringing her just a little bit closer to us mere mortals. To really get the best out of a workout, you have to push yourself to the limits. In the case of exercise, ‘no pain no gain’ should become your daily mantra.


Look good, feel better

But there is something you can do to make exercise that bit more bearable. With a stylish new gym kit, a supportive top, stylish joggers and Reebok trainers, you can limit the damage ordinarily done by wearing your partner’s old football shorts and shirt combo.

Of course, exercising in the gym is one thing, but in that confined space you can’t help but feel that people are looking and judging. With summer coming up, it could be the time to start exercising outdoors. If the sun is shining and the skies are blue, there is really no excuse. Go for a run or get the bike out of the garage for a quick spin. Exercising outdoors provides a break from your daily routine, and gets you back in touch with nature. In deepest, darkest winter it may be your idea of a nightmare, but on a summer’s day it will be much more invigorating and really get the circulation going.

Keep on running

Whilst you’re not exactly away from prying eyes when you’re outside, popping a few uplifting tunes on your MP3 player will soon help you forget about your surroundings.

And there’s one final thing that makes exercising outdoors so great – it’s completely free. There are no joining or membership fees – just you and the great outdoors. Letting you get fit and healthy on your own terms.
