Special Education Expo

Sped Expo Online Poster

I read about this at Mommy Chris' site, and I couldn't help but repost this for my readers here. This is about the Special Education Expo, which will be held on December 1, 2009 at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City. The entrance fee to the event is PHP50.00. And 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the event's chosen charity, Support and Empower Abused Deaf Children (SEADC). Operating Hours will be from 10 AM – 8 PM. This is a one day event only.

If only I am in Manila, I shall also be there tomorrow...

Poster Display Stands

Right now, I will be busy promoting and soliciting support for VDAY 2010. And although our show is yet in March of 2010, I can't help but think of Poster Display Stands that would be placed at Rodelsa Hall. In the previous VDAY Campaigns, we have missed to include that and I realize during VDAY 2008, that it is indeed very important. Funny how we can fill the entire city with our posters, yet miss to place one during the event. Ahh.. That is about to change.

Anyway, I saw this site,, and they have a good poster display stand at a very reasonable price. I was thinking of something similar.. I wonder where we can get one here in CDO.. Ha! So I wouldn't forget, I wrote it down. This old lady needs to remember so many things, so bear with me on that one..

Hmm.. I have so many things on my checklist. Good that there are a lot of ways we can do many things at once with the help of technology and all.. But nothing beats the good old poster display stand in terms of a solid visible campaign. It'll be the first the theater goers will see when they arrive, and the last they will notice, as they leave..

It should really make a statement also!


The STALKER visited my site again... Well, I am glad she was able to read my post about her.. Maybe this time she will stop whatever she will be doing.. Or whatever it is that she is brewing.. I hope she will simple stop. Because she is just wasting her time... She's actually a closed book already, but when I saw traces of her visit and the logs on the posts she has read, I can't help but blog about it here.. She visiting me now in another blog.. I wonder why she isn't coming here anymore.. hahaha.. As if it matters.. Anyway, I am just glad that she is one of my readers.. She is actually helping me with my stats, lol..

Hey guys, have you heard about Gloo? Do you know what Gloo is? Hehehe.. eyebrows raising? Well, Gloo is an online scrapbook collaboration website, which allows users to doodle and write things on a canvas in real time. It's not a social network but a platform you can use side by side with your jobs, careers or even in managing a home. You can use it as a scrapbook to keep most relatives informed of the family's activities, or a business page where you can set up group meetings, or a place for parents to interact with their kids and family from abroad, or even for your peers as a message board. This is a great help for planning events, and also as a collaboration tool for business meetings, collaboration board for school meetings or even for organizing an event. And I think, for those who have sickly relatives, this can also be used to see health developments, or even weight loss charts. What do you think? Anyway, it is more advanced than our regular social media site, but is incomparable with them. So you couldn't say that trying it would be the same as building your account at Sandbox or Facebook, Multiply or Twitter, because it is way too different. I should know, I have just created an account at Gloo (big grin!). My cousins and I are actually using Gloo in planning for our upcoming Christmas Party... With the distance and all, we are able to save time and load, at the same time, we are already able to exchange ideas through Gloo... Below is how it looks now.

Now here's great news for all users of Globe Broadband, or if you have not, then, subscribe today and get an all-access pass to Gloo. If you need more answers for your questions, then Inquire about Gloo to know more..

Last year, Cagayan de Oro was hit hard by the Typhoon and the twisters that came along, causing a lot of people homeless and grief stricken. Since last week and this week, the rain has never stopped pouring. The relatives we helped last year have also moved out of their homes already to seek shelter somewhere else, for fear that the river may rise higher again... Yes, there is still flooding this year, and some houses that have been swept away by the flood currents, but what I specifically hate is that, the weather itself has been making many people sick.. In the house, all of us are on medication for serious colds and dry cough. I have had flu since the weekend and the kiddies are also feverish since last week.. To combat these symptoms, we have our regular medications plus FERN-C, ASCOF (LAGUNDI) and lots of water... Not to mention, Manang Vellie, the traditional Massage Therapist we hired..

Today, classes for the kiddies and at Lourdes was canceled, so my sister and the kiddies were just at home, but I had to go to BSU because our classes there were not called off. On three sections, most of those who were absent experienced flooding.. Tsk.. tsk.. tsk..

I hope the rain will come smiling tomorrow.

Anyway, here's something to think about during the rainy days. Well, I have always thought that one of the best investments in life is our skills and talents. Surely, if we know we have it, we need to hone it and make better what we think is already good. That way, greater rewards await us in the future... And even during the rainy days, we have them to bank on...

Have a happy thanksgiving everyone...

My Christmas Car Wishlist

Christmas is just around the corner. And guess what? I have prepared something really different for my wish list. It is often said that if you make a wish, there is a possibility that it will come true. Well, I am making it a car wish list despite the fact that I do not know how to drive, lol... First on my list is a dodge grand caravan. I want one in color pink. Hot pink, to be exact. That would surely be a sight for eyesore... Next would be a gmc terrain or any car would do so long as it is a ford...

I happen to have browsed the net and when I came upon, I just saw how nice the cars looked. Makes me want to own one. But since I am not that extravagant nor do I have extra budget, I am wishing them my way, lol.. Well who knows? I may just have a godfather who I have not seen for a long time who won in the Lotto. That would surely make up for all those missed Christmases and birthdays, lol...

Seriously now, at, anyone with the interest of these cars can afford because they come highly affordable...

Sometimes she wakes up very late in the morning so upon waking up, she eats just a sandwich for breakfast and a tall tumbler of her favorite chocolate milk.. After that, she asks me to buy TAHO, and she consumes two big cups... for her, these two are YUMMY...

Anyone Care for an Electronic Cigarette?

Here's the best option for those who wish to quit smoking. Electronic Cigarettes may be a big help for you. I saw this information at and it made me write this post. See, I am tired of reckless smokers smoking like their habits do not affect the people around them. And the worst part of it, is the truth that they do know the consequences of their actions and their habits post high risk to anyone and everyone around them. Gees.. I dunno how many times second hand smoke and third hand hand smoking and their consequences were explained. Fact is, these people find it difficult to quit. And I can't blame them. I just wish they will try harder, or, maybe they should use the electronics cigarettes that I saw at the site I mentioned above. Imagine smoking with No tar or tobacco. So it does not contain chemicals that can be found in traditional cigarettes. Therefore, Cancer is nowhere near this option. In traditional cigarettes, there are at least 60 are known cancer causing carcinogens. With this option, there is no second-hand smoke. Plus it does not leave long-term offensive odors or dangerous toxic residues where third hand smoking consequences are derived. And of course, this new option will not stain teeth yellow or leave offensive smokers breath. The SmokeTip Electronic Cigarette can be used legally almost anywhere and everywhere, where traditional smoking is prohibited. And if you smoke just for the sake of smoking, the new option looks so real, people may not be able to tell the difference between the electronic cigarette and traditional cigarettes.

And here's the economic side of it.
Do you know that you will save 60-75% compared to traditional cigarettes? Yes, that is true. Each advanced SmokeTip Flavor Cartridge is equal to about 1.25 packs of cigarettes. So, if traditional cigarettes give you about 200 "puffs" per pack, SmokeTip cartridges give you about 250. That's 50 more puffs to satisfy your puffing cravings...

SmokeTip cigarettes use a special 3.6V long life lithium battery, and come with 6 atomized cartridges in your choice of Regular (16mg of Nicotine) or Menthol (16mg of Nicotine). Each cartridge is equal to about 1.25 packs of traditional cigarettes.

In addition to Regular & Menthol, there are also many different mild flavors like Cherry, Peach, Apple, Coffee, Chocolate, Almond, Strawberry and Vanilla... The flavored atomized cartridges come in 16mg, 6mg or 0mg of Nicotine. It uses a high quality wall adapter with the USB charger, and will charge SmokeTip in about 2-3 hours. The USB Charger is a very convenient way to keep SmokeTip fully charged, all you have to do is simply plug it into any working USB port and you're ready to go!

So what do you think of this new option? As far as I am concerned, SmokeTip Electronic Cigarettes has no flame, no ash, no danger.

I think it should work fine...

Need To Buy A Yoyo?

I need to buy a yoyo for Lili.. Lately she had been telling me that she needs to practice some more for her to be able to play her yoyo. Of course we bought it at Toy Kingdom, where all kinds of toys could be found. Here in Cagayan de Oro, we could only rely on toy stores for great yoyos since there are no yoyo shops here. Online however, there are a lot of yoyo shops. Take for example, an online yoyo shop. Actually, Lili's godfather, Cesar, a yoyo master recommended this site, as it is well known for fast delivery and having a great range of yoyos in the UK.

Speaking of which, I am thinking of buying from the site since I know I will be saving a lot because delivery on all orders is FREE... That's what Cesar said, when he bought his yoyos.. This super toy is a perfect Christmas stocking filler. When kids wake up Christmas morning and finds a yoyo in each of their stocking would really be an exciting Christmas, don't you think so?

Gotta end here as I will still be choosing my loot from the yoyo shop mentioned here...


never saw blue.

I always liked the song "never saw blue" below is its lyrics..

Today we took a walk up the street,
We picked a flower and climbed a hill above the lake
Secret thoughts, you said aloud,
We watched the faces in the clouds
Until the clouds have blown away
It's hard to say

I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all you have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that

I can't believe
A month ago I was alone
I didn't know you, I've never seen you, or heard your name
And even now, I'm so amazed it's like a dream
It's like a rainbow, it's like the rain
Some things are the way they are and words just can't explain

I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all you have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that before

It feels like now, it feels always,
And it feels like coming home

I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky, around the world
You're giving me all you have and more
No one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now, oh I
I never saw a blue like that before

Oh, oh I, I never saw blue like that

Here is the video...

Of Futons and Sofas..

I can't sleep. It's already 2:41 in the morning, Philippine time. Somehow, I can not imagine what I had seen on the streets today. Well, technically, it was something that we shouldn't be seeing but for the sake of argument, I wish to say that it shouldn't be a scene to behold. Especially not with kids as young as 4-5 years old. Well, I saw this house at Manggahan which is widely open to the public by the mere fact that it isn't finished yet. However, there is already a couple occupying the said space. The visible part of the house seemed like the living room as futons are everywhere. Two beige colored sofa sleeper futons were even visible from afar. But what I really hated to see was the couple coupling on the sleeper sofas in broad daylight, with the neighbors' children watching them. They could have moved it inside their bedroom and did the act there.

My point is, children who see these things are robbed of their innocence. Why not get convertible sofas, put them in the bedroom, and do the coupling stints there. If they want it more romantic, they can have futon sleeper sofas in their bedroom and add lighting, air conditioning and music... Wouldn't that make a good coupling environment? But no! They just had to flaunt it to the KIDS!.. Bad neighbors! Tsk.. Tsk.. Tsk...


The adventist guys sold us this book a few years ago. Then years after we bought the book, my mom bought packed charcoal form teh same adventist people who sold her the book.

It says that charcoal has medicinal properties that can heal any ailments...

I still need to meet someone who really was cured because of this and not because of some act of faith... Well, it's not that I question these things, but, I just want to meet someone who is living proof to all these miracles brought by the use of charcoal...

Clean Up Drive

Every Sunday, I find it difficult to do my clean up drive here at the Orange house, mainly because the house is too big and I am alone to do the cleaning, plus, I have yet to finish laundry and everything else.. That leaves me helpless and tired. But of course, when Bisa was still here, it was the same scenario since that house help of ours was literally a pain in the neck.. She ends up throwing away important things, destroying tools and all other important stuff in the house. So I guess, we were better off without her. How I wish there is something I could do that will make things easier.. Perhaps buy heavy duty, top of the range, metal garden sheds for storage to keep Lili's toys and all other stuff that lie around in the front yard... Something like the photo below...

Ah, that would really be something.. Unfortunately, I heard that metal sheds like that cost a fortune. Tsk..tsk..tsk.. I would love to have a metal garden shed like that to keep everything else organized...Oh well, maybe I could get a deal at I heard they have affordable metals shed that would fit anyone's budget..

Feel Good...

For almost a month now, after the stalker had done her worst act through my blogs, the sports dad and I had been talking much instead of her goal of separating us permanently.. hahaha.. what a shame!

Anyway, I just ended a call he made and I feel good about our latest conversation... So far so good...

Sometimes, people with bad intentions do good things as they continue to do the bad..


Manigas Ka!!! Hahaha...

Need an Online Tutor?

Need help in school? Some of my students do. They range from preschool to professionals, second coursers and even those who are out of school and about to apply for jobs. The reality is that life these days is not the same as how it was back then. Before, what seemed complicated is now very easy, and more complicated things arise. That's why not every body wants to finish studying, Some leave school and others prefer to take it easy... That's why I was really glad to know that there are sites online that provides Free homework help, and of course, Math homework help, as well as Algebra homework help... These Online homework help is truly helpful for the kids. It's not just easy to get hands to help online, it's a Free online homework help for anyone seeking help. I am so excited about the Free math homework help as it is the area where most students have problems with... Sometimes, a student needs a Math homework helper to ace if not simply pass the test...

And where else would you find all these? Where else but at TutorVista. TutorVista is said to be the leading online tutoring company in the world. They offer an incredible unlimited monthly tutoring package for only $99.99 a month for all subjects... OMG! That is quite a lot of savings there. Students can use their service as much as they want, whenever they need it and the fee is fixed. The tutoring sessions are available 24X7, so it is really not difficult to pass the test.. Don't you agree? And like what i mentioned above, the free stuff comes as they provide free demo for first time user where they can try the service for free..

So what are you waiting for? Avail of the free service now...

I wanna Ski the heat away..

I loath this weather we have here in Cagayan de Oro now. It's too hot! Just yesterday I finished 2 liters of iced tea just to quench the thirst.. And just when I am about to browse pages here online, I came upon this site that caters to Beaver Creek Ski Rentals.. Now, I am thinking of going out and ski... I wish I could! Lucky for you who are living in Beaver Creek, Colorado..

The site looks promising. Imagine, if you are so busy, they will have ski butlers visit you for fitting. They deliver the equipment to your accommodations, and they bring extra boots for a perfect fit! What a life that would be.. So that comes after you book online or after you called them at toll free at 877-754-7754 for the reservation. And the best part is if something is not right with your equipment, they will meet you to fix it! So you can have your ski and snowboard rental equipment picked up on final day.... Hmmm.. That is one very good strategy for a business if you ask me.. But come to think of it, if you are really good at customer relations then many of your clients will come back for more..

Ahhh.. Can't take this weather anymore... I wish I could ski right now.. That sure would be a very good break....

This has been a long day for Manny.. But, as expected, HE WON! Hurrah for us Filipinos... Mabuhay ka Manny! TKO at the 12th round. Fairly a good fight there... Congratulations also for Cotto, as he still remained on his feet despite the loss, unlike the previous opponents of PACMAN...

I have a talented daughter. That I am certain. I wouldn't be surprised if one day she will tell me that she wants to pursue music as at an early age, I could sense that music is her passion. Ah.. Music.. Reminds me of how passionate I was back then. I even wanted to be a star.. But of course, I chose a different path, which I have come to love. But maybe, if I had been bold and daring about the said passion, I would be somewhere between being a mommy and singing.. Oh well, those were the by gone days.. Anyway, I have been a fan of MTV, and I learned that its newest platform, MTV Emerge, is actually created for unsigned music talents in the Philippines.

That's great news for all those who want to aspire and be given a break.. Well, with MTV Emerge, unsigned music talents can showcase their work and be given an opportunity to win a one-year recording contract with Jeepney Music, which was founded by of The Black Eyed Peas. With MTV, Jeepney Music, and Department of Tourism collaboration, the aim is to find the hottest unsigned music talent from all genres of music (Indie, rock, hip-hop, R&B, metal, solo artists, DJs, etc). I bet you like that huh? I bet some of you would even want to join...
Anyway, all the participants should register and upload their profiles, photos and original music on the site of MTV Emerge , after that, their entries will go through a public voting process. You can actually vote as many times in the day with a 5 minute interval... A total of seven grand winners will be selected from the top entries on November 20 by a panel of judges and that also includes And all of them will win a one-year recording contract with Jeepney Music plus, mentorship under And of course, their contract will include artist management and promotion, digital distribution of 3 – 6 songs and a strategic marketing plan for the signed artists to break into both the Philippines and international markets.

I am supporting CHARMI SANTOS. I like her song, "Tinkerbelle's Theme" ... Vote for her too. She's good...

linux web hosting

Are you looking for a linux web host? Well, I have read about linux web hosting today and perhaps this post could come in handy... I found this information at, where web hosting is thoroughly discussed. For a summary, refer to the image below:

According to the site, Linux is the most popular and most powerful web server software available on the Internet, compared to it counterparts. And I discovered that many applications are only available on the Linux platform, and I was really appalled to know that without it, Fantastico which includes Wordpress, Oscommerce and Joomla will have a problem! And guess what, my self hosted sites use Fantastico and Wordpress...

If you get Linux web hosting though, you will get unlimited web hosting for just $3.95 a month, a FREE Domain Name for Life with Every Plan, NO Hidden Fees, REAL 24/7 Phone, Email & Live Chat Support and of course, ANYTIME Money Back Guarantee... Considering the deal you are getting here, would you go anywhere else? Seriously. Would you look for another way to get Linux Web Hosting? I doubt you can still find a better alternative.. As for me, I am going to think about these things some more. They might just come in handy one of these days…

Lili's Ice Cream Machine Building

My four year old is quite imaginative. She told me she built a building where you can make ice cream machines of different flavors. A place where you can also buy and eat ice cream...

For the record, "an" + initial vowel sound agreement is still not discussed in school. They are still in sounds (phonetics) so please bear with my little girl for said mistake.. She's still four, okay..

Baby Bedding Sets

Baby Bedding Sets make a wonderful addition in your baby's environment. They help keep the ambiance more suitable for your little bundle. With them, babies sleep better and are less likely to cry a lot since it makes it comfortable for them in every way. Match it with proper air conditioning or with proper heating systems for colder areas and baby sleeps soundly.

Ahh.. I remember Zarelle's infancy. Such a bliss to recall. Not to mention that it was terribly short since I had to leave for Cebu. Most of her bedding sets were pink and white combination courtesy of the Ninangs (godmothers) who loved pink. lol..

And speaking of baby bedding sets, I think it would be a nice gift to give for babies this Christmas. One particular source would be, where baby bedding sets are nicely done and earth friendly too. Safe for baby's sensitive skin as it is made of fabric that is non-allergenic and free of harsh chemicals. Hand made baby crib bedding sets speak of quality and comes with a no hassle 100% satisfaction guarantee.Styles vary from modern to classic styles that blends well with any nursery decor. And of course, they are all made from 100% high quality natural cotton materials.

Visit that site to see more.

The Eyes

The eyes can not see what our hearts can see, but definitely, we can see everything in the eyes, what the person would try to hold back or hide... Speaking from experience here...

I Want Direct TV

Seems that everybody is wanting more of direct tv channels rather than all the other television channels. I guess you could say that direct television has really gone a long way. And because of its popularity, more and more people are wanting to get directv service than all other services..

But of course! Direct TV offers the best in everything. They have the best TV programming, the best deals and specials. Not to mention the fact that they have the best in actual savings. What more can anyone ask for? Truth be told, if there is Direct TV here in Cagayan de Oro, I would also sign up, subscribe and be one of its local fans... I can foresee that I will be getting more than my money's worth..

By the way, I read that they have the $100 VISA Prepaid Card (plus free shipping) as a Special Direct TV offer. If you are interested, do call them at 888-874-6256...

My sister Honey will be buying River, our little brother, an Ezy Roller for Christmas. That is after she learned what an Ezy Roller can do. She said she wants to play with it too. Hahaha, As if she will still be able to. But I read from Posylane that it could be possible. With that, my eye brows are raised, lol..

Two years ago, she gave River four personalized pillowcases which until now, River still uses. He unusually likes them as he likes to lightly rub his hands and feet on them as he sleeps. He actually asked my sister for them rather than for toys as Christmas presents. He also loves seeing his name boldly stitched on them. Lili, on the other hand, got the pink nap mat. This Christmas, each of them will be getting an
Ezy Roller. That's what Honey said.

Hmm.. My brows are raising some more. I think she is preparing the kiddies for some big contest when she arrives.. Well, we'll see...

Debbie's Towel Wrap Gift

Ah, Christmas is in the air. The winds are blowing cold air as it brushes our skin. Forty three days more to go and I shall be opening a box neatly wrapped in glossy wrapper, while, inside it is my favorite pink or red personalized bath wrap that my friend Debbie promised to send me over the holidays.. The yellow terry towel wrap need to take a bow this year as it has already taken its toll on itself, lol. It's not nice looking anymore, as it is not as comfortable as it was the first time it was worn. So I am really happy when Debbie said that I will be getting what I wanted to get. And Lili, her god child will get the personalized ink stamps that she requested.

As for Debbie, she is getting what she wanted from me all these years... Unfortunately guys, I will not tell you what that is. It's a secret between friends... Over all, there is really nothing that could compare to our friendship. That, in itself is a wonderful holiday present...
