Dragonfly

Posted by on Dec 6, 2010 in Fashion, Health, Personal, Wall of the Weird

I know I would need to explain the title.

I couldn’t think of any title to this blog post so before writing, I decided to brush my teeth and wash up first before blogging and going to sleep.  In the bathroom, I saw a HUGE dragonfly Smile  I know I’m a scaredy cat and I freak out at freaky squeeky and creepy things but a dragonfly is different Smile

 

That dragonfly reminded me of my childhood.  I used to catch dragonflies in 3rd grade on our school’s huge field back in the day.  I am boyish and played whatever guys played during the day.  Of course, I also hang out with boyish girls lol.  During lunch time, while other girls are playing “sliding wallet”, I was catching grasshoppers and dragonflies.  I couldn’t count how many of those insects I caught but I could remember it was many.  Don’t worry, I don’t hurt them … I think Smile with tongue out  I believe we let them go after we caught them.  (I am not a murderer, not even to helpless insects)  Well, maybe except for mosquitos and red ants grrr.

 

Anyway, the dragonfly is supposedly not related to this blog post.  The dragonfly is just a memory that I don’t want to forget and that’s why I wanted to put it on the title.  Someday, somehow, I’d be reminded of how fun it was to be a kid and play around with nature rather than cyberspace.  oh well…

 

For the real blog post… here we go.

 

I don’t know where today went!  A lot of things just happened let me enumerate them:

1.  Woke up early to sit in DJ Vince G’s show “The G-spot” on Mellow 94.7 at the Paragon Plaza.  He interviewed my friend from the blogosphere Frances Sales, editor of OK magazine and blogging at TopazHorizon.com Smile  I haven’t seen her in almost a year I think and the last time I saw her was at an event and we just quickly said hi.  I thought she was going to bring baby Vito too so I thought of coming to see the little angel but she decided not to bring him up the booth because it might be noisy.  It was an interesting on-air topic about how to find yourself your prince or princess.

This OK! issue is a must buy – I couldn’t put it down reading and viewing all their compilations for “Best and Worst” for the year and many other good stuff.

Here’s the intro of their interview that I shot using my Nokia N95:

Frances Sales on Mellow 947 with DJ Vince G

 

2.  Kiddie Party at Jollibee!  I feel like I am getting old attending a children’s party of friends.  Oh my goodness, let’s not talk about how I want to move forward in that aspect just yet… anyway, there was this game for kids and I was surprised that they also had some game for adults.  And because people were not game.. I was volunteered @_@  at least I learned one thing today – how to pop a balloon lol

 

3.  Popping a pimple – when you get so desperate with that HUMONGOUS pimple on TOP of your nose, you learn how to Google how to pop it ~_~ and that’s exactly what I did in Hong Kong where I couldn’t get a hold of any derma help.  I thought it worked, but a week after, it’s growing again like I actually got worried that NASA’s new microbiological discovery of new species with new DNA is growing on top of my nose!  EMERGENCY!!!

Since I found myself walking around the mall after the birthday party, I looked for a clinic to inject some anti-ACNE serum on it.  Yes, they put needles on my swollen pimple – imagine the PAIN I had to endure.  I had no choice, I have shoots coming up and I don’t want my pimple still up (that rhymes!).

 

4.  Hair Pamperin’ – Oh, hair got fuzzed on the Hong Kong cold, time to rejuvenate with a simple hot oil Smile  Thanks to Vivere Salon and the staff for taking care of my hair Smile

5.  Shopped for stuff at 50% off – because it’s a Sale and I am being a girl ~_~’

1205201075912052010758

 

6.  Bought my new pair of glasses (2 of them) for only P1,300 each!  Each glasses have multicoated lens on them already – all in the price of P1,300 faints!  And the best part was, I had a free checkup (which is standard) and they made the glasses for me in my grade for only 30 minutes!

Star-Finder Optical shop at Robinson’s Place Manila.  Their store is located behind the “House of Obagi” store Smile  They are also located in Bel Air Alabang Smile  They also had a few circle lenses that are of course safe to use.  I discourage people buying just from anywhere.  I usually buy at Optical Shops for safety.  Sometimes I buy it  at MyCandyEyes.com  I have used their lenses and so far, so good.  They also have great reviews from buyers.  Shipping was also quicker than I expected Smile

 

7.  Last but not the least, got my underarm waxed finally.  I used to shave, but now I go to waxing salon.  Soon, I will have it laser-removed. 

 

Hectic day, but now I am tired @_@… time to sleep guys Smile  But first, share with me…

 

How was your Sunday?

Google Hannah

Posted by on Nov 7, 2010 in blogging, Personal, Wall of the Weird

Sometimes, I just randomly check my feedjit stats just to see where the people that land on my blog come from.  I was surprised at what I saw…

image

 

Someone was searching for the word “hannah” online and it landed on my site.

 

Then I checked Google Canada and found out that when you search for “Hannah” my blog comes out on the first page of the SERPS XD

 

image

Of course, Hannah Montanta is the #1 in the search result but woot! page 1? can’t complain!  My blog also comes out on Page 1 (#4) if you search for “Hannah” in Google Philippines out of 57 million results! *Faints*

image

If you search for “Hannah” on Google.com, my blog will come out in Page 2 Smile with tongue out can’t complain… STILL!

When I started blogging, I “Googled” my name… and found that the only result is from the website of Philippine Regulations Commission and Manila Bulletin’s… This was when I passed my CPA board exam Smile with tongue out

I just want to thank you guys for always dropping by my site Smile I love all the mails I’ve gotten from you.  Thanks to friends and family who support me in this cyber world I am in.

Try to Google (or Yahoo or Bing) your name too… or if you don’t want that… Google your crushes not the ex-es! stalker mode!

Say, I haven’t slept yet because I slept too much yesterday… I’m just not sleepy.  I was planning on hypnotizing myself to sleep but then it’s 6am!  DJ Vince G is on air and I will listen to mellow 94.7 Smile

Good morning everyone!

Expiration Date PLEASE!

Posted by on Aug 20, 2010 in Announcements, Food, Health, Wall of the Weird

Will all Food and Beverage companies put not only the Production Code on your products but also an expiry date please?  I am not sure if the law requires them to. If yes, then uh-oh…

 
I am just generalizing this post because this goes out to every company producing perishable goods.
 
This chocolate ate last Tuesday tasted weird. It has no expiration date on the cover, nor the individual chocolate bars! It only has a production code which should mean something to them, but c’mon, us consumers don’t get to know instantly what your production codes mean…
 
I bought this from a department store. I usually check the expiration dates all the time and I did not make any exception to this product.  It did not have any.  I was so craving for this chocolate so I just bought it.  I mean, what the heck.  I supposedly should trust that they don’t sell expired products because if not, they’re the law will get them… right?  So, I bought the thing.  It looks new and good… and yummy! so I grabbed it and paid for it.
 
Back home I took one mini bar,  the peanuts tasted kinda weird, but the chocolate tasted fine.  Overall, it didn’t taste that bad. I ate 3 and ignored the weird peanut taste.  My tummy ached a few hours after I ate it (Vince was witness)… I’m not sure if that was really the cause (I also ate some other stuff) so I am not saying that I am entirely sure that my tummy ached because of it.  I’m just saying, it’s possible that this product is expired so I went checked the pack again – no expiration date.
 
I studied Cost Accounting before and I know that they must have a production code printed with the wrapper and so I looked for it. I found the production code outside the main wrapper and to the individual candy bars.  It should mean something more so I made a research and I found this article:
 
I found out that the digit indicating the year of production is the number "0" as in zero… So that could mean 2000 or 2010… I’m more inclined to think that it is made in 2010.  If so, they are not yet expired because chocolates have at least 2 years before they expire.  I’m saying, only the peanuts tasted bad.  The chocolate tasted fine.  But my point is:
 
How am I sure because there was no expiry date???
 
Right now, brands are very focused on their new marketing strategies.  I just do hope we don’t forget the basics such as putting expiration date on the stuff you are selling.
 
To all you guys, be a smart consumer.  Always check for expiration dates.  Don’t just trust the supermarket, it doesn’t have a brain – you do!  I know you might forget, but if you do this often like me, it will become a good habit.  I had a couple or three instances before reporting to the department store head that they had expired products on their shelf.  My mistake here is, I should have asked for the expiration date if I really wanted to buy the thing.  Anyhow, in case you encounter a product without an expiry date and you want to check out the manufacturing date instead through their production code, check out the website above.
 
In case you have any idea on any law or government regulation regarding expiration codes on the products, please do let me know by commenting below… I am not informed, so I would appreciate being aware with my readers.
*poof*

Minority

Posted by on Aug 18, 2010 in blogging, Travel, Wall of the Weird

The minority, no matter what definition, is usually always ignored.  But sometimes, minority could mean something more.  In this case, minority is “special”

I just found out that there were countries visiting my site that I didn’t even know of.  I know I’m bad at geography and memorizing country names.  But I seriously haven’t encountered some of the places that visit my blog.

If I have enough money… I would want to travel to these places.  It’s the unpopular that I want to discover.  I find more treasure in the rare like rare music, rare TV drama… and the likes. 

I just watched “The Expendables.”  Don’t ask me about the review, I wouldn’t say anything nice.  I learned something though.  I learned that there is a place called “Vilena”.

image

I looked at my Cluster Maps and what you are seeing is data from May 2010 up to date.

Just by looking at it, I wondered what countries or places those dots are… I’m like “There’s internet connection there?”  and yet, they visited my blog!

The list below contains some countries visiting my website that I have never heard of like Senegal, Suriname, Malawi, Guyana, Belarus, Djibouti, Guernsey, Swaizland, Benin, Niue, Martinique, Mozambique, Anguilla and Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Check out more of my clustermaps here.

These countries interest me hmmmmm……

Do you have a blog? have you checked which countries visit you too?  Isn’t it amazing!?!

Technology Triggers My ESP

Posted by on Jun 19, 2010 in Featured, Personal, Tech Chic, Wall of the Weird

ay-ya-yai…

That’s a bold statement up there… but yep, I think that I am super techie even for my own good that what triggers my ESP (if I have one) is Technology.

Last year, I wrote one dedicated blog post about how I think I had ESP.  You can read about it here if you are masipag enough :P.

I freak myself out a lot of times!!!  I gave examples of situations that are totally creepy but cool on my ESP post above.  One thing about my ESP is that I can only feel something to happen within the next minute.  The most I think is 24 hours.  Other than that, I don’t think I can feel what happens in the distant future.

Another thing that I noticed lately that most of it is “Technology” related!

Jeng… Jeng… Jeng…!

Situation #1  The Cellphone

Most of the time I have my phone lying around and I am busy and so engrossed tinkering with my computer or watching TV or DVD, then all of a sudden I panic thinking “whoah where’s my cellphone someone might text me” a second or 2 later it rings / alerts me of a new message.

– SometimesI think my brain detects radio signals or has an invisible antenna of its own lol.  Sometimes I think that it receives sms signals and it alerts me before it alerts the phone for a message.

Situation #2 The Radio

Another thing that always really happens to me, like I thought at first this is always a coincidence but it just really is happenning too often for my skepticism to this idea melt, is when I say I am in a car driving while listening to music.  Suddenly I just feel like looking to the right and I see a billboard with the word “vacation” then synchronized with the lyrics of the song (or sometimes what the dj says) is also the word “vacation.”

– again with the radio signals lol

Situation #3 The Internet

About 2 years ago, I was heartbroken like mad.  I’m over it but if you will notice my archive 2 years ago, it’s super emo like I want to slap myself now reading it lol.

I plurked saying “I think I need to go to Church.” and Sonnie suggested me to join a Christian Group that he suggested if I’m interested.  Later that night I asked him about the Christian Group and he gave me a link to their site. I was about to type the url address of the site when I noticed that, the site was open on my window already @_@…

– from this blog post

– this one, I got really freaked out a little bit lol.  It was a bigger sign more than anything.  I even tried to click “back” on the website but it had no “history”  You can read the rest of that story by clicking the link above.

Situation #3 The Globe Event

Okay, so this time, it’s a Globe event… you know what it means… cellphone everywhere, techie people, 3G, GPRS, EDGE network of globe… more radio signals and everything tech!

So this ESP thing happened just recently and I was getting more and more convinced that my ESP is triggered by technology.  Vince and I were invited to Globe’s launch of their Flagship stores.  Thanks Coy for always inviting us to super cool Globe events 🙂

Will talk about the event in details later 🙂

Anyway, there’s a raffle at the end and when they said that, I immediately just had the super strong feeling that I will win something!  I don’t usually get that feeling but that night, when it was announced, it was super strong.  We were supposed to go to another event but I really felt I need to stay for the evening.  Vince had to go to the other awesome event as well, but I decided to stay on the Globe launch.  I also kinda missed hanging out with my other blogger friends who were there and it was also one of the reasons why I stayed (NUKS!)  Pero totoo guys! SWEAR! I miss you gaisss!

So Vince said goodbye to me… When he said goodbye… I didn’t want to let go of his hand for some reason!!!  (Let’s not get mushy guys lol)  That same time he was leaving, I had a feeling that it WASN’T ME who is going to win… but HIM!  I tried to convince him to stay… but he failed…

“Sige, kung gusto mo, iwan ka nalang dito” he said.

“Okay.” that’s was all that I can say… Malay ko ba that my ESP(n) is telling me something.

RAFFLE TIME!

“Wait a minute” – I said to myself.

The feeling of me not winning and Vince winning was getting strong… the whole night after he left, I felt kinda nervous for some reason… my hands were cold and my heart was palpitating a bit fast and normal…

The names are being raffled out already… some people already won…

Hindi ako mapakali! (I couldn’t stay still) “should I text him?” eh what if he won’t win rin naman… what basis do I have?

“wag na.”

and the host goes “Next item will be a _____” I didn’t hear the item they were raffling out but at this time, they were all cellphones already.  Someone said “iPhone” so I thought it was an iPhone…

and the lucky name is… yep… that’s right folks… I saw his name on the TV Screen…

“VINCE GOLANGCO”

*faints*

that’s my story…

If you want to know how Vince felt… read this.

So I told Vince the whole ESP(n) story I had… I told him about my other ESP(n) moments before but he was just laughing at me lol.  I guess after this incident he somehow acknowledged some little bit of possibility that I could have the tiniest bit of psychic in me… 😛

“From number 1 – 15, what number am I thinking?” He blurted randomly while he was driving us home.

“13” – it was the first number that came into my mind for some reason.

“mother*****”

was all he can say… I got it right 😛

‘Till the next ESP(n),

Self-Diagnosis

Posted by on Jun 13, 2010 in blogging, Personal, Wall of the Weird

Last Thursday, I felt like I was dying.

 

Facts:

1. Intolerable headache

2. Bothered eyes (might be cause of headache)

3. Nausea

4. Vomiting like no other.  Vomiting even if nothing comes out…

5. A little movement and I get dizzy… then I vomit again.

 

Culprit:

New contact lenses… I haven’t worn contact lenses for a week.  I had my eye check if I still have the same grade, bought new ones, then drove home.

Traffic was crazy.  The glare of the 4pm sun was sickening.  I could feel my eyes being bothered.  When we arrived home, I felt the headache.  I removed my contact lenses and slept for 30 minutes to rest.  When I woke up, I was feeling much better, but a slight hint of headache was still there.

I wore the contact lenses again and we were off to the Playboy event.

 

Playboy’s 5th year anniversary at the Hyatt.

It wasn’t a blogger event nor anything that I need to cover so I was grateful WEE!  It was just a party and the tickets were expensive 😛  We were not allowed to write or to get media coverage so whatever happened there, stays there 😛

 

The only thing that triggered my headache again was the smoke.  I tried to fight it and tried as hard to stay.  I forgot to bring the container of my contact lenses.  The lenses are new and they cost about a thousand good for a year.  I could not just throw it like the other disposable lenses.

So, I had to wait.

This aggravated the pain.

 

We finally went home, but all was too late.  I felt super worse.  The driving made my motion sickness trigger as well and I vomited in the car, in the house.  I tried to take care of myself as much as possible.  But I was so glad that someone was there to take care of me.

 

Lessons Learned.

Do not leave container of contact lenses.  Always bring them.

Avoid smoke when wearing contact lenses.  Take them off if ever.

Make sure your grade is correct, consult with the doctor.

Cliff Diving in Boracay at Ariel’s Point – A Flair Adventure

Posted by on May 22, 2010 in Featured, Pilipinas, Sports, Wall of the Weird

I never knew I’d check this activity in my to-do-before-I-die list anytime soon.

I ACTUALLY DID IT YOU GAIIIZ!!!

Okay, so Nic (our friend) arranged for us at Ariel’s Resto in Boracay station 1 for this very flair adventure!  We started off meeting the others at Ariel’s at around 11am.  Then we headed off to the boats docked at Station 1 for a 30 – 40 min (ish) ride.

For a tiny fee, P1,200 (about $27 US Dollars), you get a boat ride from Boracay to Ariel’s Point, which is about 30 minutes away. There, you have unlimited drinks, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with lunch and of course your boat ride back to Boracay during sunset. Oh, let’s not forget the unlimited number of cliff dives, jumps and (like my friends) belly flops that you can do.

DSC02425

When we got there, I saw the plank that was stretched out of the cliff for everyone to dive on.  There were different levels.  The lowest plank was at 5 feet, then I think there was a 10 feet and 30 feet.

Then I saw the 45 feet.  I was not as overwhelmed as I thought I would be.  I saw the height (from the boat) and I was like “mehhh… I think I can do this, it wasn’t as high as I thought it was.”

Then we head up to the top of the cliff.  There were tables and chairs for us to hang on.

P1080004

I think everyone was too busy to take pictures of the people jumping that I couldn’t find pictures of the hangout area… This is the only picture I have with rest of the area… of course, it’s the one with me and Marc Nelson in it… *faints*

There was even a hammock…

*searched for pictures of the hammock but couldn’t find any*

but, I found a picture of a monkey…

Cliff Diving at Boracay - April 26 (48) Cliff Diving at Boracay - April 26 (49) Cliff Diving at Boracay - April 26 (50)

There you go! The moody monkey… Sometimes he’s shy, sometimes he’s playful… sometimes he’s just acting cool ;p

Oh, and he loves rum coke!

That’s why he’s a bit high lol

Everyone settled down first but our friend Oli jumped on the 45 feet plank first… wooot!!!  I think he was the most excited guy on our group to really cliff dive.

I instantly thought that I must jump already – on the HIGHEST plank, just to get it over and done with.

I am a good swimmer and I am very buoyant (If you know what I mean lol).  Anyway, kidding aside, I studied the area.  I studied the cliff and the water where I would fall.  It looks deep enough.  It should be!  I saw Marc Nelson doing his Eagle Swan dive and his brother jumping on the highest plank the same.

Immediately I knew it was safe to jump.

This is just to reassure my mom and my aunts who got so mad seeing my picture jumping off a cliff…

After Oli jumped and he was okay, he had fun and he said that was just amazing!  I initially though of jumping second.  So, I grabbed all the balls I have and went to the stairs, and walked my way (slowly) to the plank…

image

Tick…

Tock…

I felt like the whole world was in slow motion.  I was climbing the last stair to the top and I could feel my heart beat… both with excitement and I admit, I got scared… That was when I was overwhelmed by the height!!!!!!!

Slowly, I made my way to the edge of the plank…

I looked down…

BAD IDEA!!!

From below, it didn’t look scary…

But when you’re on the edge of the plank, and you see the water below you’d shriek with fear!!!

Then, I heard encouraging words from the crowd…  My friend Trondz was there too at the stairs of the plank and he was like… “kaya mo yan… it also took me a while to jump from that plank”

I thought to myself… “I guess everyone is scared at first, but look at all those who jumped… they now walk with pride knowing they jumped a 45-ft cliff”

At this point, my knees weakened… like all of my adrenaline was crumpled into a ball inside my adrenaline gland, not wanting to go out yet…

I walked back a few steps and I saw my other friend Jake, waiting in line to jump next.

I knew then I wasn’t ready…

So I asked her to jump first ahead of me.

It took her a little while to grasp the reality that she was standing in the plank… but I guess she just wanted to do it and not hold the line so she jumped!!!

Then I heard the splash!!!

It was just quick and so I asked “How was it?”

“Masakit sa pwet pero okay lang, it’s fun” To translate she said “it hurts the butt but it’s still fun”

I brain is one nice machine but my body is still weak and frazzled.  Since logic is telling me that it’s just perfectly fine… I managed to grab all the balls I have and convinced my body that it will be okay.

I found myself at the edge of the plank again.  This time, I heard Trondz voice again “Don’t look down while falling, just look at the horizon”

“That seems like a helpful tip… in fact the horizon looks nice… helps me calm down” I thought…

Without thinking next, I let go of the plank and stepped on air…

The fall lasted for about 3 seconds.

It happened really really quick and my brain processed every emotion per millisecond.  And the conscious side of my brain is a bit slow to realize that I finally did it and even though I got mixed emotions, the word FUN was still on the top of my mind.

Good thing my memory still captured the feeling, millisecond by millisecond (I’m exaggerating) and this is why I’m blogging this right now to make the moment immortal!

min:sec:millisecond

00:00:00 just jump hannah

00:00:01 right foot first

00:00:05 look at the horizon

00:00:50 PAUSED at 0.5 secondS (HOLY SHITAKE MUSHROOMS I REALLY JUMPED! I’M ON AIR! I’M HANGING .. I’M FLYING

P1060901

00:00:70 MOTHER FISH PRAWN CRACKERS!!! MY STOMACH FEELS FUNNY!!! (like when I ride roller coasters)

P1060902

00:01:00 So this is how it feels huh… Alright, let’s just enjoy the last 2 seconds on air…

00:03:00 **SPLASH**

P1060903

00:04:00 Whoah… my ass hurts!

00:05:00 Ahh… so nice to finally touch the water… It’s perfect… I miss the sea…

00:06:00 emerged up the water… with a smile… and I heard Mark Nelson say “good jump” (or at least I thought it was him… or I was just dreaming or knocked unconscious for .05 seconds) **faints**

In normal motion, hit play to see the video of me jumping 🙂

So, there you gooooooooo!!!

I DID IT!!!

I was “mayabang” (one proud little kitty) when I went back up.  Weee I did it!!!

Then I went back to Vince (who was assigned to take my video)…

One thing I would not want is for him to miss my jump and not take a video of it…

“I took your video!” he said. “YAYE!!! Let me see!”

and this is it… In normal motion…

To my horror, I did not like the video… Why? It was not zoomed in on me so my face was not recognizable… It wasn’t proof enough that I jumped…

All the vanity took over me and without anymore thinking, I said… Get the camera ready, I’ll jump again… This time, use the Sony Cybershot TX1 so that you can zoom in and zoom out while recording a video.  (Other digicams can’t zoom in and out).  “Zoom in when I’m on the plank and about to jump… and Zoom out when I remove my feet off the plank” – I gave him specific instructions 😛

So, there you go… Jump number two 😀

O— M—G—!!!

OMG There’s a Fake Flair Candy!

Posted by on May 17, 2010 in Featured, Personal, Wall of the Weird

Thanks to Regie who mailed me on Facebook about this FlairCandy poser!

 

Here’s a screen shot of the poser’s page:

Obviously, she/he/it used my picture.

It is a fake account.

I am not really mad or whatever, I’m just *shocked*

O_o <– this shocked

 

Anyway, so far, this faker is harmless…

And she is not using my name…

but she is using my picture…

but my face still is up that profile…

 

So if she F*cks it up like what she’s trying to do

“So hot, I want to take my clothes off”

Just don’t add this poser guys, it ain’t me…

 

Or, you can still add her/he/it if you want to…

Just for fun T__T

 

but still, I have reported this as a fake account already.

This is how you report someone who is trying to impersonate you, using your name or using your photos.

At the bottom of the impersonator’s page, click report/block this person.

Seriously, I don’t get it…

Why are they creating fake accounts, and using other people’s photos.

 

Can you give me top reasons why someone would create fake profiles on Facebook?

Also, what are the dangers of this?

What do you need to do about it?

 

I don’t really know much what to do myself as this is the first time.  If this happened to you, let me know what’s best to be done so that we can all protect each other whenever your identity is being stolen online.


UPDATE:

I’m an idiot… I forgot to put the link to the fake profile.

Here it is:

http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/profile.php?id=100001024256694&ref=ts

Please help me report the fake profile by clicking on the link below and hit report on the bottom of her page and did exactly what I did in the screen shot above 🙂

Thanks guys 🙂 and thanks to Gem who made me realize people other than me can report it 🙂

Thanks ^_^

Flair Updates for 2010, Grammar Police, Blog Clogs and my Travels

Posted by on May 5, 2010 in Announcements, blogging, Career, Featured, Movies & TV, Personal, Wall of the Weird

Hey you!

It’s been a very busy first quarter of the year.  It’s all good though, it’s the good kind of busy 🙂

Anyway, I just need to write to update you all on what’s happenin’ in this blog of mine.

I just finished developing the official blog site of Tek Tok TV (Tech Talk).


Tek Tok TV is finally online!  http://tektoktv.com/ep01

“Tek Tok TV” (Tech Talk TV) is your source for the most up-to-date news, topics and info from the world of geeks. We talk about the latest trends in technology, gizmos, the internet, blogging and more! Every week, live on GNN, we’ll feature gadgets, bloggers, tech experts, cosplayers and more of your favorite geeky stuff. Tek Tok TV is part of the Global News Network’s Business Portal series. Every Wednesday, LIVE – 10:30am – 11:30am. Only on GNN.

That’s what’s keeping me busy right now.  I co-host with Vince Golangco of wheninmanila.com for this show which is produced and directed by Pocholo Gonzales of Creativoices.

I love make up!!!

About more than a month ago, I took make up lessons.  I am such a tomboy and I didn’t care much about makeup but then I realized that I need it… and now, I am loving and embracing it!

Vince has been telling me to video myself while doing makeup.  Eh? With all honesty, I have poor lighting at home and doing a video thingy while putting makeup would be useless… T__T

So, I just took a picture of my makeup today… I must admit, I am really loving it now!  Makeup brings out your best features.

Anyway… I am busy with more other things.  Trust me, for a jobless girl, I’m doing a lot of work.  Like yesterday night I slept at nearly 4am because I was trying to finish the website above and woke up at 6am to get ready for the TV show.

Eh?  I need to also put makeup on or else I would look like a panda on TV.

Anyway, I had fun today as I co-hosted with Vince for Tek Tok TV.  We are at our 6th episode and we invited Abe of yugatech.com (yes you know him, he’s an internet celebrity!!!) to talk about the iPad… is it worth it or not? and all other questions we had…

I had my hands on the iPad to tinker with for the first time… I was SOLD! nothing beats the experience ladies and gents… pretty amazing!  Although I would want to wait for the iPad with 3G and sim card.  It would be useless for me without the mobile internet function (here in the Philippines at least where we don’t have many WiFi free spots).

Also we invited over the team of Cubizone to give us more insight and views of the current gaming industry here in the Philippines and how some corporations could tap into this industry and match their respective products and brands.  It’s a totally different light in gaming.  Of course, common sense should guide your lives people.  Too much of anything is bad… too much of gaming is bad.  They also said that managing your time and being responsible is one sure way to live a more worry-free life.

Phew… I talk a lot when I need to do I?

Grammar Police

There has been a grammar police attacking my comments section.  Initially, I did not remove them.  But it gives me negativity that I just had to delete them.  I usually don’t delete comments.  Even comments from haters… but I just didn’t really want to bother much.

(I just took screenshots) here’s what I’m talking about.

I bet he or she is reading this right now.

He/she has been complaining about my BAD GRAMMAR, my excessive usage of ellipses (…) and my green humor.  I wonder why he didn’t complain about my excessive usage of emoticons ^_^ XD … and my excessive usage of **faints**.

Anyway, read my About page and find that I usually don’t check my grammar or misspellings.  I write more creative and more entertaining when I free-write.  If I continue to edit, it disrupts my focus.  And, as much as I would love to edit my own writings and re-read and re-read my posts again and again I CAN’T because I don’t have the luxury of time.

I’d rather upload things ASAP than to meticulously and professionally check my blog posts before uploading them.  For my blog, TIME is of the essence and I choose time relevance.  You know how it works online – what may be relevant in this second could be irrelevant in the next hour.

This is a Personal blog… not a newspaper publication.  I don’t have a boss… I am my own boss, so if you’re bothered with my grammar, feel free to comment.  I’d glad to look it out and edit.  If I see some misspellings and grammatically erroneous sentence construction then I edit it.

I also write for other online publications and magazine articles but with this I do check my grammar and have someone four-eye it for me.

For now… I’m writing as usual ^_^

Priorities

I had to reject some events and some travelling due fatigue and sickness.  I got sick last weekend and although I recovered quickly, I just rested at home or else I know my body would give up.  I always prioritize health.  It’s my wealth.  Seriously.

My Travel Posts and my Blog Clogs

A year ago, I went to Hong Kong for the first time… Did a lot of stuff there, but haven’t blogged about it nor uploaded photos on my flickr.  SHAME ON ME!

Also last year I went to Malaysia to meet my Malaysian friends… and went to Singapore for F1 2009 coverage and back to Singapore again for Nuffnang blog awards.  Although I made at least one blog post of these events… I have yet so much to write and blog about!!!

I have so much to share!

Let me… one-at-a-time share once again my budget travels, adventures, misadventures and everything else.

So thank you guys for helping me keep this blog alive 🙂  Thank you for all the email and the comments.

With much love, this is Hannah, signing of for tonight… ^_^

Ciaoz

The Cat Lost Her Grin

Posted by on Mar 6, 2010 in Wall of the Weird

It’s a very curious week as movie stores shows “Alice in Wonderland” the movie by Tim Burton.

Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin; but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!

– Alice

Like the Cheshire cat, I always grin… I’m always sweet like the candy that I am… Even when tired, you can still see me smile 🙂

Laughter…

I laugh at the smallest things… I appreciate the littlest things in life.

One thing I enjoy the most is to spend time with loved ones… then I am happy…

 

Silly…

I was never afraid to get silly… All of us need to let loose and just be silly and innocent sometimes…

 

I don’t know what I’m talking about here (as always)… I just know that I seem to have lost my grin…

 

I am attached to my grin… Remember this blog post?

 

Can someone please find it for me?

 

I lost my grin tonight…
