Premiumwhite pro is a huge scam!!!

I WAS SCAMMED BY PREMIUMWHITEPRO under ULTRAFRESHWEL! Beware online shoppers, never try the risk-free trial offer at www.premiumwhitepro.com or your money will turn to ash.

Two weeks ago, I hooked in to this deal I found on Facebook. Premiumwhite is having a risk- free trial offer and pay only the shipping and handling charge of $1.97. Risk-free, so be it. THe item did not arrive til today and the money was taken from my Paypal account.

$2 is not a big deal. I could earn that through blogging but $87 is a huge one. Sooo PISSED! Yesterday, I found out that PREMIUMWHITE PRO under ULTRAFRESHWEL charged me with that huge amount of money. What pissed me more is that I have to pay my bank an overdraft fee of $64 since I don't have enough funds to cover the $87.

It took me hours to find ways just to talk to any of these scammers. I called the toll-free number but it took me almost an hour on hold, I gave up. Went to the website and chatted to a disrespectful customer representative. She said that I couldn't retrieve my money back as per terms and conditions. What? I am paying $87 for the product that is not in my hand? So I told her to remove my name in their database and that I filed a dispute against them on Paypal. Out of myself, I used abusive words and she terminated the chat session. The transcript of the chat is saved in my inbox and is in black and white.

I am just hoping for the best, for my money to be back. They have done so unGodly things by stealing a poor's money.

Facebook outage

It's been 46 minutes since I updated my FB status. Til now, there is no progress at all. The last update is 3 hours ago by Ruth. So this means that Facebook has been offline for quite a while. The website is working a bit but it doesn't show the updates of my friends. Hmn...BF is teasing me yah. Now that I have time for my online activities but it ain't letting me. Oh well , I might as well drop EC to make my stay a fruitful one. Haven't dropped yesterday, for sure this is a lot of cliks for me tonight.

Another fussy day

The 'lil was so fussy today. I just couldn't understand what she wanted. She started so fine in the morning til afternoon but when the sun started to hide, there she was and just unstoppable. She wanted to take a nap but she was fighting it and me. Poor mama, the 'lil girl was kicking and slapping her face.

She just went to bed just a couple of minutes ago. Actually, she fell asleep on the kitchen floor. She must be so tired and couldn't bear it anymore. When I checked on her, she was laying on the pillow she brought herself. I had to bring her to the bedroom, massage her head, back and tummy gently that she would feel calm and forget about her crying times.

Parenting is really a roller coaster rider. SOmetimes the kid is so great, sometimes not. I still have a long ride with the 'lil one, a never ending ride.

Where's the cherry?


You might wonder why there is no single cherry on this upside down cake. It's a little bit shame to say but I was out of cherry that time. I so wanted to eat this kind of cake but I couldn't wait for the hubby to come home to buy some cherries. At the latter, my first try of baking upside down was a success. Love the taste, not too sweet. The pineapple flavor blended so well with sugar caramel. Seems like I want more now! Late at night cravings lol.

Monday musing

What is good on MOnday? My teacher asked sarcastically back then when I greeted her. I just said nothing much! If she only have asked in a good mood, I could have replied, "you". It's good because I see you this fine Monday. Anyway, just remembered a piece of my high school memories.

The little girl is so good today. She woke early and took a nap with no hassles at all. No cries, screaming and fussiness. Now she is watching her favorite show on Sprout while I am updating this blog. It feels good when she is fine.

What a great Monday until I saw the hubby's trash on the kitchen top. He is good in ruining my day. He knows exactly that I don't want any mess in this house but still he keeps on forgetting and would just apologize when I am upset. Too many apologies and I am burned out with it. What is the meaning of the word sorry if he keeps on doing it? Though he is good in accepting his flaws and apologizes everytime he does something wrong, still it is useless and meaningless for me.

In spite of that, I am still thankful of what I have. A priceless family that keeps me alive every single day. Along with that are the blessings I get from the select social media sites like SS. Today I have reserved two opps that I am about to start composing after this entry.

The girl in a read shirt is here. Guess what, I smell something...lol. She is pulling me and saying p--. So long everyone! Have to take care of this something. Be dropping EC later tonight. happy MOnday!

Crying toddler

While composing this entry, the 'lil one has just finished crying. She was fine when I put her to bed but cried when I left the room. I think she doesn't want to be alone. For the past few days, she changed a lot from being a good girl to a high-tempered toddler. She used to sleep early all by herself with no help from me and was so easy to handle with less tantrums, now she tends to be the boss wanting to do her will.

Though my conscience is suing me right now for letting her cry to sleep, she needs to be corrected and it is my responsibility to take her to the right path. I can not let everything that she wants to happen. As much as I want to spoil her, I can not give that much. I am just suppressing my feelings not to feel pity on her, yes, she is fine!

Arggg...it is hard to be a parent. No more babies for me!

Forgetting the holiday

Since I become a stay-home mom, tracking the dates and holidays are so not likely part of my day. I just let it pass and then go on the next day. When it comes to holidays, forget it. Sometimes I remember, most of the times I don't. I depend mostly on my cellphone to update me during birthdays of my family.

Just like what happened today, I forgot that it's Veteran's day. What a big darn of me that I went out to the mailbox to check if there is/are mails for us. Nothing. So I asked the hubby why the mailman didn't pass yet and it's already 2PM. Mailman passes between 10AM to 12NN on regular or business days, by the way.

But hey, when it's payday, my mind is so wide open lol. GRocery shopping and going out somewhere inspire me to get ready. At last! I am out of the house, enjoying the road and other places. THe hubby is the driver since I don't have my DL yet. His off days are my off housechores, too.

BEfore I go to bed and forget again, I'd like to greet all the heroes, the VETERANS of AMERICA, a "Happy Veterans Day" and this greetings goes to my loving husband, too, who served in the US Marines 11 years ago.

Her first trick or treat

THis year is so exciting for us. The 'lil one is growing so fast and having most of her firsts. So this year is her first trick or treat. She was the princess of the Carribean, wearing a pirate costume. We went hay riding with friends in the nearby subdivisions. It was so fun, indeed! The 'lil one was just so happy and was showing off a lot of her.

Smiling while saying "GO CAR". So eager to go out of the house and have fun.

With proud dada...

...and proud mama.

With the rest of the kids. GEtting ready for hay ride.

The first house where she got her candies.
FIRST TRICK OR TREAT!

The answer lies on LiveTV4me.com

It is known to most of my readers that I grew up in the Philippines, spent twenty-five years of my life there. Almost three years ago, I moved to USA and the rest is history. In that length of time, I am not conformed suitably to the American lifestyle yet. Food, weather and television shows are amongst that I haven't embraced fully. Yes, there are hundreds of channels that my television has but none of those are the TV shows that I used to watch when I was still living in my homeland.

My current cable provider does not cater Filipino channels. THere is no way that I will be switching to another provider just to have the channels I want. It is not a good idea either knowing that Louisiana weather is so unpredictable with all the hurricanes and storms in most months, causing too much outage. One more thing is the note of over $100 a month. Tsk...I won't pay that much just for the cable. I'd rather wait for the uploaded videos on some networking sites online to watch some of the Philippine television shows than pay much. The downfall is that the videos are not updated so chances are, there are so many series that are missed. Also, some of the videos are vague.

But after learning about this awesome website, livetv4me.com, where I could watch my favorite tv shows online, there is something that pushes me to make a purchase. I am thinking to get the software that would literally costs me $39 only for over 1000 channels worldwide including my favorite Philippine TV shows. The payment is a one time fee and the software takes no time to download. For as little as 3 minutes, the process is done. So cheap. No hassles. So easy. This might work for me.

Music Monday : Obsessed

Today's music Monday entry is Mariah Carey's latest single "Obsessed". Mariah never fades. She is still the best artist for me. Everytime she releases a single or a video, there is always a spark that makes everybody obsessed about her. So who else is obsessed with Mariah?

Obsessed
by MC

Why are you so obsessed with me?”

So oh oh oh oh

Will the real MC please,
Step into the mike?

So oh oh oh oh

All up in the blogs
Saying we met at the bar
When I don’t even know who you are
Saying we up in your house
Saying I’m up in your car
But you in LA and I’m out at Jermaine’s
I’m up in the A
You so so lame
And no one here even mentions your name
It must be the weed, It must be the E
Cause you be popping hood
You get it popping, Oh

Why you so obsessed with me (Boy I wanna know)
Lying that you’re sexing me (when everybody knows)
It’s clear that you’re upset with me
Finally found a girl that you couldn’t impress
Last man on the earth still couldn’t hit this

You’re delusional, you’re delusional
Boy you’re losing your mind
It’s confusing yo, you’re confused you know
Why you wasting your time
Got you all fired up with your Napoleon complex
Seeing right through you like
You’re bathing in Windex
Boy why you so obsessed with me?

Ooh Ohh Ohh boy why you so obsessed with me?
So oh oh oh oh
So oh oh oh oh
And all the ladies sing,
So oh oh oh oh
So oh oh oh oh
All the girls sing
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh

You on your job
You hating hard
Ain’t gon’ feed you
I’m gonna let you starve
Gasping for air
I’m ventilation
You out of breath
Hope you ain’t waiting
Telling the world how much you miss me
But we never were
So why you trippin’
You a mom and pop
I’m a corporation
I’m the press conference
and you a conversation

Why you so obsessed with me (Boy I wanna know)
Lying that you’re sexing me (when everybody knows)
It’s clear that you’re upset with me
Finally found a girl that you couldn’t impress
Last man on the earth still couldn’t hit this
You’re delusional, you’re delusional
Boy you’re losing your mind
It’s confusing yo, you’re confused you know
Why you wasting your time
Got you all fired up with your Napoleon complex
Seeing right through you like
You’re bathing in Windex
Boy why you so obsessed with me?

Ooh Ohh Ohh boy why you so obsessed with me?
So oh oh oh oh
So oh oh oh oh
And all the ladies sing,
So oh oh oh oh
So oh oh oh oh
All the girls sing
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh
Obsessed
Soo Oohhhh Soo Oohh

Why you so obsessed with me
Lying that you’re sexing me
It’s clear that you’re upset with me
Finally found a girl that you couldn’t impress
Last man on the earth still couldn’t hit this
You’re delusional, you’re delusional
Boy you’re losing your mind
It’s confusing yo, you’re confused you know
Why you wasting your time
