Getting a bit of stress!

One more night of sleep and we'll be heading off to Philippines. I have to do a little bit of blogging, etc. before I would finally bid goodbye to my least I wouldn't be working with it for more than 2 weeks.

Then, would do some bills, and help hubby do the lawn, water trees, afterwhich I have to do the final packing and could finally zip the luggage..aaaaggghhh!

So, you see being a housewife is not easy. I am glad am not doing any outside work, or else I would probably die of too much exhaustion. lol!

Meantime, my mom's ticket was finally paid, as per verification from PAL. I am not happy the way it was done, (my previous post says it all) by a relative that they trusted. I told them, this is a lesson to be learned. But as of this date, the actual ticket was not yet handed to her.

Happy Halloween!

Upsetting News...and venting!

As I was talking to my mom on the phone last night, I remembered asking her if she already got her plane ticket from a cousin who offered help to book for her a ticket. My brother is getting married in Laguna, so mom has to get her ticket before November 10, the date of my brother's wedding. It so happened that my brother gave the money to this cousin because he said he trusted her. The money was given first week of October, and until now my mom can't seem to get a straight answer from her. She said she already booked it, but mom was wondering why she can't give her the ticket!

This might be an unpleasant thing to hear but I told mom and my brother that I don't trust her when it comes to money. I am aware she is my cousin, and is a relative, and I love her being a cousin, but I don't trust her when it comes to money. She can make stories, and lies, and if you'll fall into it, you'll gonna end up a victim of fraud!

I told mom to resolve this as soon as she can before the plane gets fully booked. At the same time, I told the story to my husband and he got upset.

Hubby will be calling the airline tomorrow to confirm if mom was booked. That way, we can also know if she was really telling the truth that she already booked it. I am thinking, it's 95% that my cousin is lying!

This is an issue that gets to be resolved if ever she would be caught lying and just making my mom so stupid! Just in case, I can't seem to imagine slapping once face!! am hoping not.

{{{Vent ends!}}}

Tag for my better-half

This tag came from Lisa. I am not into tagging that much, but since I got ran out of posts, this should get me running hahaha...

This photo of him was taken 10 years ago...sorry but he prefers giving me this one rather than the recent one, LOL! But anyway, he said it's still the real him, so he has a point there. :)
1. My husband's name is Craig. It's a popular name, so it's not a problem :) I call him
"beloved" as a sign of endearment.

2. We met online on a dating site...actually it's a chatting site. He sent me an email on my profile message box, and that was the start of it. It then progressed to calls and later on came to visit me in my own country of the same year we met. We met in person 3 months after chatting online in Manila, and then got married 6 months after being engaged! They said it was fast, but how can you be against love? :)

3.My husband is a jolly person. He never run out of jokes and has an awesome sense of humor! I never get bored being with him, and I love being with him all the time. He is blessed with wits and I can say he's intelligent, and at the same time a God-fearing person...the most understanding, softspoken person I've ever known in my life. I believe God gave him to me.

4. Our future plans of living in the Philippines someday is always at hand. My husband has a big heart and generously giving to our loved ones. He has a good heart for the Filipinos and have been planning to support or found a church or social welfare group to help indigent Filipino children and christian couples who can't barely make it. We are still praying for this.

I guess that's all about it...if this tag stops on me, I guess I am running out of somebody to whom I can tag this! LOL!

Have a happy weekend everyone!

Email Scam Alert!

I got an email which says like this 3 days ago. By just reading the first 2 paragraphs is already a red flag to me...smells fishy. Here it is:


Good Day,

I am Lt. Gen.ALIYU MOHAMMED, National Security Adviser to President
Olusegun Obasanjo Federal Republic of Nigeria. I decided to contact
you becauseof the prevailing security report reaching my office and
the intense nature of policy in Nigeria.

This is to inform you about our plan to send your fund to you via cash
delivery. This system will be easier for you and for us. We are going
to send your contract part payment of US$10. Million to you via
diplomatic courier service.

I have secured every needed document to cover the
money. Note: The money is coming on 2 security proof boxes. The boxes
are sealed with synthetic nylon seal and padded with machine. This
fund was brought to us from America; it was meant for our Local AFEM

But since the money was not used, I will use my position as the
National security Adviser to the President to send this fund to you.
Please you don't have to worry for any thing I will
finance the transaction.

The boxes are coming with a Diplomatic agent who will accompany the
boxes to your house address. All you need to do now Is to send to me
your full house address and your identity such as, international
passport or driver license including your contact phone numbers, The
Diplomatic attached will travel with it. He will call you immediately
he arrives your country's airport.

I hope you understand me. Please don't send money to any body in
Nigeria. Be warned.

I will let you know when the specialGrace of God will airlift the
boxes. Note: The diplomatic does not know the original contents of the
boxes.What l declared to them as the contents is Sensitive Photographic
Film Material.

I did not declare money to them please. If they call you and ask you
the contents please tell them the same thing Ok,i will let you know
how far I have gone with the arrangement. I will secure the Diplomatic
immunity clearance certificate that will be tagged on the boxes to
make it stand as a diplomatic consignment.

This clearance will make it pass every custom checkpoint all over the
world without hitch. Confirm the receipt of this message and send the
requirements to me immediately you receive this message.If you need
more information about this, i will give you the contact of the
diplomatic agents for more information on how to carry out the plan.

Note that all your response should go to my alternate email address:

Please I need urgent reply because the boxes are schedule to leave as
soon as we hear from you. Reply me immediately you receive thismessage.

Best Regards,
National Security Adviser to the President
Federal Republic of Nigeria
email address:

He even is using the names of high officials in Nigeria. I wonder how we can be able to trace this email sender who is taking his identity at risk just to scam for money!! I wonder what's the penalty for this if caught??!

Couple of years ago, I received a similar type of email like this, and the names of persons within it has only changed...geesh.
This is not only about money, but also a possible case of identity theft. There's no use replying to this scammer. But I am just curious how can we track one's IP address and locate where he is. It might not be the very exact location, but who knows, he is posing as Lt. Mohamed from Nigeria, but he is somewhere in another country.

It's a pity for the Nigerian officials being involved in this scam. How I wish this should reach their attention.

Running out of posts!

I received 6 blogs opps in one of my paid blogging sites the other night. I accepted all of them and now I am having a dilemma, lol!

Well, they require me to post each opps in between two non paid posts. I only got 48 hours to post the 6 opps, and I still have to post any regular blog (non paid). Gosh, that made me ran out of what to post!

It so happened I only have one active blog for this and so I couldn't get to post these opps to my other blog sites like here for example ;) I am currently and continously updating this blog for future use, but so far it's still pending for approval.

Oh my, oh my! Now, my husband is helping me to the rescue! hahaha...

My only wish is to add this blog on my paid blogging sites someday, to make it more active and running! {{{Praying hard!}}}

Blogging and Clicking

My laptop's going crazy because of this...I mean, there are some stubborn cookies that are making my pc slow, although I have my norton security software. I signed up for PTC sites and PTR's and so that was it.

Anyway, I still am carefully watching for bad spywares.My norton has antispyware, but not with stubborn cookies. I just get to manually clean it.

I am not giving up my PTR and PTC's, seem they are good supplements for my paid blogging. It's not a fast earning income, but when it accumulates, it's still money! LOL! And I already can request payment from my other PTC site, although I have been clicking for more than a year, LOL! But, am letting it go up til I reach 100 bucks. That would be worth it.

Hotel Reservations

Do you travel often? I do. Sometimes, when it becomes urgent, we do usually experience hassles in hotel bookings and ending up getting headaches because we end up booking in a wrong hotel (because price is too much high).

I saw online one good site for Hotel Reservations that could save you money for your travel. Did you know that you can save as high as 70% off just for your travel bookings with them? This is considered to be great, great savings for your hotel discounts particularly if you're really a jet setter. Other than that, they have different offerings such as bookings for motels, resorts (this is perfect for the summer vacations!), vacation rentals with vacation packages, plus flight and even car bookings! It means an "all in one" transactions for frequent travellers.

One most important thing to consider using this company, is that you can book online with their lowest internet rate price guarantee, and avail up to $100 rebate ! WOW! ....and take a look at this, they give you $30 gas rebate too!

Feel free to visit hotel reservations, and start booking for your travel plans now. One good thing is they can book you in world wide destinations. You can choose the country you want provided in the site, and choose any vacation package that is convenient for you.

You can also have choices for best bed and breakfast packages, and if you want to rent a condo instead of getting your hotel reservations, you can do so.

They also have discount club membership which when you become a member, you can avail of as high as 70% off discount for many cities worldwide including your favorite destinations.

Hhhmmm, I am now thinking of sharing this to my husband, since we're just starting to talk about our pleasure trips at the middle of this year. This is a good option, no doubt.

Shopping for Less

I have been going around lately for some shopping for our coming trip to the Philippines. Aside for some "pasalubongs", I also shop for myself, and for home. I was able to get some for our loved ones in the Philippines. We thought they don't need to be super expensive, as mostly are kitchen accessories, and some house decorations. ..(in time for christmas). All those were well taken cared of and so, they are just waiting to be packed inside our suit cases.

Meantime, I was able to get a very nicely elegant curtain for only $10. bucks. I think original price for that in some department stores would be $20 bucks or even more!

It was the only one left on the shelf, and so I grabbed it! It so happened that it matches with our couch so, it was good!

I just recently discovered, there are lots of stuffs in Big Lots! aside from the famous dollar stores for cheaper items. I'm not promoting Big Lots, but the items are still of good quality regardless of the cheaper price. Good thing is, it's just very close to home, so it would always be good getting a drive down there to buy some more "pasalubongs"! Not bad after all!

"Little G"

It was an early gift for my husband's birthday, actually. I should have posted this 2 months ago, but I didn't get the chance to. Now is the good chance, so here it is. My hubby's birthday was August 4, but I thought of getting it last week of July.

There are many things that made me get it. First, my hubby always travel to places other than his regular job. He would always go to DC and would always end up being lost along the way. Every mapquests that he did was always not working, taking wrong turns, and getting a ticket! Gosh! So, it was really a need on his part.

We call it "little G", because of its name Garmin. It's pretty working!..and a good choice. No hassles. At times, we go for trips such as Pennsylvania mostly, and we had used it several times. It's the portable type where we can install and detach it from the car and can carry it with us while walking too!, it's a little angel for us too! ;)

A Wonderful Miracle of God!

It is truly a touching story of a mother and her baby who fight for their lives, and God gave them another chance to live. It shows that God is always there for us and is still doing miracles for people's lives. God's miracles are not things of the is still going on very strong up to this moment and seconds of time.

On 2/5/07 . Nancy was pregnant with her 4th child and had to have an emergency C-section. As soon as the doctors opened her up her uterus exploded. Baby Naomi had no heartbeat and was dead. Naomi was quickly revived and put on life support. Nancy lost blood, transfused twice, cardiac arrest three times- on respirator and in coma for 11 days... but they prayed and God answered!

Witness this God's true miracle!
