He's coming!

David Cook that is!

We were chatting over lunch today that ticket to Daughtry's concert here in the country is kinda pricey. Well he's famous but I am not anxious to see him. Then I brought up that if David Cook will be having his concert even if it's in Hong Kong then I would sell my soul to anyone who's willing to buy  just to put up the money (Hahaha)

I was telling my officemate that if I were to be asked in US Embassy why I want to go to America, I would answer the interviewer that I wanna see the Idol tour specifically DC. I think I would be denied of the Visa because...

Guess why? Cookie will be having his oh well, show in the country in January 27th. I think it's a mall tour (the stuff that I mentioned about Idols were doing here) to promote his album which is due to come out in November.

Holy Molly matrimony! I can't wait.

Can this year get any better?

I am doing the cartwheel!

I think I need to come up with another believable excuse when I go to the embassy.

Getting the hype

The unending rise of oil price has taken and will continue taking its toll.

The minimum jeepney fare as expected has increased yet again from P8.00 to P8.5o. Even the trike far is taking a slice of the cake.

Counter measure, do the walkathon. Good for the heart and for the pocket.

Say goodbye to taxicabs because the flagdown metered rate has also jacked up.

I am not complaining because it is inevitable. For a fact, I am proud of myself because I have learned how to tighten my belt and I have lost my impulse on buying unimportant stuff.

The fear of being alone

I have not heard of these conjoined twins until I have seen them on you tube seeing The Fear of Being Alone.

It just touched my heart thinking that why we all feel so incomplete or alone when we can see things in a different light.

The old school meets the new school

When it comes to quality of service, we always have reservations for the old school, but with the current dynamic demands, it is unavoidable to welcome the new school. Wouldn’t it be great to have the best of both worlds?
I know one who has successfully hitched the old and new school in terms of Car Radiator and cooling services.
From the very humble beginning of operating in and serving Northern California with three hardworking people, has rolled into 45 radiator experts to meet the growing demands of quality service of the entire America.
While adapting the current technology demand with the use of computers, this bunch of experts has preserved the excellence of providing your radiator requirements the old fashioned way.

A lemon

Almost a month ago, I wrote about how ecstatic I was getting my new laptop. I got it through my officemate whose aunt lives in the US and has got some gadgets business.

I have waited for it arrival for more than 3 months. It was held in Customs (Philippines) for a month.

A few days after I started using the unit, I noticed that it's kind of noisy. I thought that it was natural until I asked around particularly those who got the same unit from the same person. It turned out that it's just me whose unit has got that unusual sound.

since it has it's one-year international arranty, I brought it to the service center, only to find out that they only do service and repairs. They diagnosed that the hard drive is problematic. They would just replace the hard drive and I have to wait for a minimu.m of 3 weeks. 

I asked if I could have it replaced, they said I have to ask for it from the store where I bought it. Darn! So I told my officemate about it.

Now I have three options and unfortunately getting my money back is not one of them:

1. Return the unit to my officemate so she could send it to her aunt to get a replacement. Shipping to and fro the US would mean a waiting time of 2 months minimum. Within the waiting period, I have nothing to use. Oh, there is, the flickering and nearly flatlined desktop.

2. Settle for an HP which her aunt could readily send and while me waiting for it (minimum of one month), I could use this laptop. My officemate is yet to get the specs of the HP laptop so I could weigh options.

3. Since I am really okay with this laptop and I really love the huge screen, I could just settle for the hard drive replacement. And yeah, this would make the the L to the OSER.

Doomed but not mad.

The Dark Knight

I have vowed to make delayed gratification until my most-awaited "Body Shots" competition is over.

I have mentioned about me watching The Dark Knight which has started to be shown here since July 17th. I heard that it has surpassed the box office record of Spiderman 3 and it has been confirmed that it has reached over $200 million (jeez I can't even write to figure correctly) in ticket sales in just 5 days of being shown in the US alone.


I am really excited. Maybe by the time the competition is over, I will be in the moviehouse alone watching this flick. As if it were a special screening.


Kudos Heath!

Do I smell an Oscar?

Academic excellence online

In the era where online business, education and activities are in, it is always a relief to know that some institution still upholds the integrity of quality service while being at par in offering new means of service delivery.
There are so many online colleges out there but there is one that has a commitment to providing high-caliber academic excellence. Capella University started to offer bachelor’s degree and graduate programs online in 1993. Adding to their milestone is the Online Writing Center that features multi-media modules aimed at graduate level students studying in a variety of disciplines.
This particularly interested me since I am into writing the online education on business and technical writing and grammar classes would definitely benefit me.

This is the latest and I think the last film of Heath Ledger.

This first 5 minutes of The Dark Knight made my heart race.

I am not a movie house person and I am really running against time fulfilling my deliverables but I must watch this reel. For the the love of both me and Heath!

It's showing here July 17th.

Can't wait.

If the shoe fits

I just noticed that beauty industry is getting the spotlight not just from Hollywood junkies but from average Joe and Janes. I am talking about the beauty industry that encompasses salon, spa and cosmetology. While these “beauty essentials” can be found in every corner of the town, we have to be certain that the services that we get are from the hands of high breed ones. 
The demand of hair salon jobs are relatively high and if you are a salon owner, you have to be sure that the one you will be getting has this “magic touch” and for the beauty stylist, it is imperative that he or she would land a job that is rewarding. Getting the right combination would definitely raise the bar of the beauty industry
I found out that BeautyJobs has launched a beauty industry job placement website. This is the perfect answer to the challenging beauty industry demand as it sets its goal to making a popular online destination for forums that will fuel the rise and sustenance of promising and top caliber beauty professionals.
