Block the bitch basher!!!

 Never had someone who smacked me in my face nor I never been in a fight with anybody, virtual or not. I am one friendly being who always wants to laugh and make everybody laugh until an intruder came in...


In my other blog, I posted about this woman who thinks she is on the higher ground than everyone else ( read post here). She holds her own chair so high and brags about her achievements and intelligence (what's the IQ?). Proud that she is a graduate of MSU (school funded by the Philippine government) with Education degree. That she passed the Licensure Exams for Teachers of the Philippines (did she top the test?). That she was an English teacher in the Philippines (an item or just a sub-teacher?). That she is currently studying International Law here in the US, not sure where though, and a scholar. Her being boastful made everyone in the blogosphere so sick, thus, she got her dose of medicine.

Why this woman deserves to be abrogated? Here is a short story...

...April 20th, she bashed a blogger and a dear friend of mine, Twerlyn of  Twerlyn's way of thinking, who has no intentions on  hurting anyone in her post Reading no more but to just express her opinion with humor, apparently, this Zoo, short for Zuveena with a given name Janice Negrosa, an instant bitch of bitches (record breaking), took it the wrong way, begun commenting crap and even  talked against  Lerlyn's personal life which is conspicuously off the topic. Worst is that she also battered Lerlyn's supporters and named them names, including me.  The fire made me realized that what she'd been throwing against us is her own reflection.

With her stinky mouth, the blogging community gave it's support to Twerlyn and sledgehammered the bitch, pushing her down to the edge of her blogging career and personal life. Today, the net is flooding with negative posts about her, enshrouding her so called achievements.

The banner below symbolizes my support to abolish the great palengkera in the blogosphere. And when you click the banner, you will be redirected to Lerlyn's page where you shall discover the horror of the ousted queen of poor bitches. There is also a page where you can help  Block the bitch Zuveena in the community.


Credits are given to Lainy and Windy of  Lainy's Musings  for the banner and the campaign page to block Zuveena.

Birdie rearing

A couple of weeks ago, hubby, little one and I were at my in-laws to pay 'em a visit. The weather was so perfect that time, 'lil windy and sunny, so we stayed in the porch to have a chit chat.

While talking about just anything, I spotted a mother bird feeding her 'lil birdies with pieces of bread that mother-in-law had scattered in the yard. So, I hurriedly grabbed my camera and took pictures of the mother bird's motherly gestures. Mother bird even took the lil birdies poopie out of the bird's house after feeding.


Mama Birdie is making sure everything is safe before feeding her lil ones. Any human movements makes her fly away and comes back when she feels it is fine.

Mama Birdie watching her 'lil ones 'til feeding time is over.

I admire the way birds take care of their babies. So sweet to look at that I thought birds are better mothers than humans. They take care of their babies 'til the day they can live on their own, not abandon 'em. There are human mothers out there who would rather commit a sin through abortion or give their kids away just to escape from lifetime responsibilities. So sad to think that birds can do better than 'em. Shame!

Play the Charade

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of goviral. All opinions are 100% mine.


Guess what I have been doing for the last ten minutes? I have been trying to guess the name of the song given at www.mailstat.co.uk. It's just a practice but tell you that I could be sweating right now if the air conditioner is not on. I need to give my best shot here before I can proceed to the actual guessing game, the CHARADE. Whew! It's harder than I thought, huh.

Charade - 500 styles is a guessing game where in clues are given through hand gestures. It surely makes a mind to think deeper and broader. There is no given time to answer the test but then of course, the faster a player guesses clues, the more fun and more chances of winning a free music for a year with a premium We7 subscription! There is no cost at all in joining the Charade - 500 styles. Just be ready for the hands, though.

So, if you like mind games, I think you would love Charade. Log on to the website today, practice first to enhance your skills then play the actual Charade afterwards.

And oh, I finally was able to answer the first Charade but too bad coz it's just a practice. I had toI ask  hubby's help and he guessed it perfectly. Now I am trying to play the actual Charade. Hubby won't help me no more as he's playing Ninja Assassin on X-box. What a mess. I think I just have to try it myself. I'll let you know though of the result. Wish me luck.

Hubby's new hobby

This is one of hubby's output last night. He's been playing with photos, customizing 'em into different scenarios and themes. The backgrounds are available, he just pasted a photo or two then customized it to his desired location and all to fit into the space. I forgot the website, though.

Being a computer buff and watching sports on TV are hubby's tiny flaws, minor flaws that ain't causing a fire between us. When he's not working or doing yard work, his butt is stuck on his computer chair, browsing websites that sell knives. So now that he's into this fun photo customization, it doesn't affect me. It is better this way than spend his time in night bars and drink and smoke.

Back to the picture, that's exactly the role of the 'lil one. Ain't no telling but she is the boss. One day, she'll be kicking me off this house lol. Of course, I am not allowing her to be that disobedient and disrespectful when she gets older. Discipline and prayers are the keys for her to grow up good, if not perfect.

Date Night on April 9th, 2010

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.


What if a group of people point a gun on me and the hubby after having an awesome night out? Oh boy, I don't wanna think of what's going to transpire realistically.


Anyway, what I mentioned above is similar to the Date Night Movie, starred by Steve Carell and Tina Fey, both terrific actors. The the only difference is that the situation is fictional and most case scenario, it happens only in a movie.

I first saw the movie's trailer in the movie theater and several times on TV. And since I couldn't get over it, I had to watch the trailer over and over again on Youtube. The video is embedded above for your convenience.

The movie Date Night is about a bored couple who go out for a weekly dinner date but end up in a peculiar situation, I mean literally scary. The most intriguing part is that how they get themselves in a situation where gunmen are after them, chasing them with guns and seems like want the couple dead. How are they going to handle it? That's for me to find out on the 9th of April, 2010. Hubby said he wants to watch the movie, too. Yepeeeeeey! Another free day for me, another pig out! A bucket full of popcorn, a soda and a funny yet thrilling movie is soon to come.

Date Night is I'm sure the movie to watch if you want to laugh with thrill. Watch it with me, hubby and the rest of movie goers on April 9th, 2010 and onwards.

Time to book

Been vocal about my Philippine vacation with hubby and 'lil one. Got one more thing to do though before I can say that the vacation is set. I need to book a room to stay in General Santos City, my hometown, and that's what I am gonna do in a little while.

I opted Tierra Montana over East Asia Royale Hotel, Sydney Hotel, Filipino Hotel, Country Homes and other small hotels in the heart of the city. A standard room with two beds, free breakfast, wi-fi, cabled flat screen LCD TV and other amenities is only Php 1,450.00 a night. THe hotel is close to Jollibee, CHowking, Hospital and a whole lot more.

The picture below is owned by the hotel and all rights reserved for such. I just wanna share what a standard room looks like and what we are partially getting for the price we are paying.

Chipmunks: The Squeakquel DVD is waiting

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.

Two days ago, Sunday, was hubby's free day. Free day means pig out and he can eat all he can after a two-week-diet. It's his way of consoling his mind and body. So Friday, hubby and I with the 'lil one went to this famous store, Wal dash mart, for food shopping.

As we entered the store, these new released DVDs and Blue-Rays right by the entrance were spotted by my animated movie buff husband. As usual, he stopped by the movie rack and looked at the DVD titles. He'd been waiting for two movies and finally, it's available now. These DVDs, The Blind Side and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel are amongst 'em. He wanted to buy the latter so bad but I had to stop him. We can't spend over $50 that day for some reasons. He promised himself he's gonna get it the next time we're going back to the store, and that is tomorrow, Wednesday.


Anyway, my friend, Lerlyn told me that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is terrific and the funniest that she'd seen and that I won't regret if I am going to buy it now or tomorrow. Her kids, Bienne and Arianna, enjoyed watching Alvin's crazy tricks and I am sure my 'lil will do, too. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is also available in Double DVD Pack that includes "The Squeak Along" Bonus Disc. I'll look for this offer in the store.

Oh can't help but giggle now. I just munked myself, I mean I customized my own munk. Did dress Munky, my pretty munk, with a denim skirt and a shirt with a cute pair of sandals. I also added accessories such as necklace, wrist watch and a hat. So cool, perfect summer outfit! I bet everyone who tried, loved it, too. There are More Munk Mayhem to choose from on the website and I am inviting you to make your own munk today!
