You Know You're a Mother When

This morning I folded a mountain of clean clothes, put away my own and tucked it in my closet.

Then something dawned me.

My closet is not as full as they used to be. My wardrobe is the same as last year’s. Nothing is new. Yet, we are still having problems with closet space because my son has more clothes and shoes than he needs.

Perhaps it’s a mother thing.

Do Not Read This

I’ve been selling online for more than a year and everything went well until today. I just received my first ever negative feedback in ebay. It was from a buyer who got disappointed for not getting the item that she ordered. When in fact, I only sent her exactly what she bid for. It was a $29 worth of brand new authentic perfume, which she only paid for less than $20 by the way. I believe I have accurately described the item, stated all the details that a buyer has to know (which I assume she did not read), and even posted the actual picture. She said it’s not the type of perfume and the scent she wanted. Geez.

It does not only happen in ebay. It happens everywhere. People can read but they choose not to. How many times have we been a victim of our own stupidity just because we are too lazy to read?

Reading is sexy.

Read the announcements. Read the reminders. Read the labels. Read the fine print. It can save your life.

Read a little. Read a lot.


Because it pays to read.

Although with all honesty, I never cared to read the EULA and ToS. LOL

Back When Romance was Different

This morning, I was rummaging on a pile of boxes to sort out what has to be thrown out and what has to be kept. I found old notebooks, handouts, old photos, wedding souvenirs, collectible cards, empty boxes inside the boxes, trophies, cobwebs, and a hell lot of thick dusts. Then I stumbled upon this shoebox. It was old, dirty, and full of memories.

Inside, I have kept a lot of letters written on scented stationery, random notes on a piece of scratch paper, greeting cards, gift tags, bookmarks with dedication written at the back, candy wrappers, and a Linkin Park cassette tape, all from friends (and admirers) that were given to me mostly during special occasions or given heartily on any random day.

But my most treasured of all was the first letter given to me by a high school love. It was made of cheap cardboard paper. It has 3 pages and each page is colored with crayola with a stenciled I ♥ U on the background. Outside the letter are poorly cut popsicle sticks on the side, a printed picture of a red rose at the middle, and behind the very thin paper are bold handwritten words in fancy writing that say

Of Logo Designs and Fashion

Tuesday, October 18, 2011 0 Comments A+ a-

For the past few months I have been joining logo design contests. Now, I have savings for a car and I owe it all to my amateur designing skills! LOL. Wishful Thinking.

Recently, a new logo contest was launched and it is about fashion. I have to make a logo for a social site where you can get fashion inspirations. At first, I was ecstatic. Probably because it’s a girl thing and almost all the other amazing graphic designers out there are males. It’s going to be an edge. It’s going to be easy for me.  And I was so determined to win it.

But as I started to hold my mouse, nothing came in. Not a single idea came. I stared at the monitor for a long time thinking what the hell am I going to do?

Paella Valenciana

After spending the whole day at the beach we gave ourselves a sumptous dinner treat!

Paella Valenciana from Paradise Island is a must-try! I'm a bad food blogger. So yeah, I can't really give you a lot of details. I don't know how much it costs, what ingredients are there, what other dishes are on the menu, and whatnot. All I know is that we ordered a serving good for 5 devoured only by 3, including a picky eater toddler. haha

What could be more rewarding to go out away from the buzz of the city life, leave a pile of work, and just chill out on a beautiful white-sand beach? This. Is. Life.

I wish weekends are always like this.

R.I.P. Steve Jobs

I was just about to whine of the too much hype everywhere about the new iphone 4s. And  I know how much I wanted it and I am very well aware that don’t have the money to get one. LOL. But i’m good with my current phone. It served me well for a long time. Despite its dents and heavy scratches, it’s still the most beautiful, and yes, useful thing ever. Thank you Mr. Steve Jobs.

Apple will never be the same without you. Rest in peace.

A friend shared me this recipe. Thought it was weird. Well, it sounds kinda gross.

But I was soooo wrong. I never thought fried oreos would be this yummy! Ha! You should try it too. Making it is as simple as A-B-C!

For the ingredients you only need these:
