I was surfing the net, doing random clicks on articles that I thought interesting, I was actually reading about sports, food and calories, Hollywood bits and new fashion lines but I guess, being random means reading shocking things from time to time.

Do you know of Gendercide? I knew of Genocide, Hitler and World War 2, and how traumatic, distressing and bad those times were. But, gendercide, and at this time and day, that's kinda lame and inhumane, don't you think?

*sigh* I am not one of those pro-life activist, who doesn't believe in the use of contraceptives because I do believe that everyone was given free will to decide for and by themselves. I don't condemn nor applaud abortion, to each its own, as long as parents-to-be have valid reasons in doing such acts then I guess it's okay, we always answer to our own conscience anyway. But killing an unborn child because she is a female kinda throw the equilibrium of freewill and choices, that is not right, period.

Read it and do tell me what you think...

Gendercide in India - India’s sex ratio is getting worse

It's been a few days after the holy week, are you all back in the grind or your heart is still in the resort, island, paradise that you visit? Did you do something worthwhile, holy, blessed, fun or you just let the the week passed by like it's just one of those usual week that comes? No, I don't mean to step on your business, I'm just making polite conversations and yeah, it's my way of saying how are you?

Me, I lazed around like I always do*grins*. We went to Paradise Ranch, in Angeles Pampanga, on Tuesday, we stayed there for two days and a night, it was a family retreat, our way of meditating, of being one with the Lord, of contemplating and asking forgiveness. I didn't even brought my camera with me as we discussed that having it around will only increase the temptation of cam whoring and nonstop photo op instead of what we ought to do. But I wish I did, the place is super nice and other patrons were taking and snapping pics like there's no tomorrow *sigh*. Oh yeah, envy, another sin to atone *lol*.

We got back home on Wednesday night and we stuck around the house until Easter Sunday, eating like we haven't eaten for the whole first quarter of 2011 *lol*. I got to finished a few books, 3 Korean drama series - Paradise Ranch, My Princess and Secret Garden, which are all love, I did major postings in the Mothership and I sleep like my life depended on it. It was a good week!

I didn't get to go on a vacation, bask in the sun, play in the sand and tan my skin in the beach which I wanna do, who's coming with me? It's your treat, right? :D

Hello peeps, hello blog, miss me? I miss you, but what can I do, life is sucking all my energy *sad face*. Anyway, let's just enjoy the times I spare blogging, I'm having another LSS (last song syndrome) *grins*, and I wanna share it with everyone, I think most of you are familiar with the song but to those who are not, here it is, one of the few songs honored by the Academy Awards. Now, sing with me *wink*!

Falling Slowly
Glen Hansard

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice

You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing it loud

We were given free concert tickets of the up and coming pop groups here in the Philippines a week ago, the concert was held last weekend and believe it or not, the place was jam-packed. I was amazed of the pull those young guys and gals have on the teens and teens-at-heart. Good thing the people behind the show were well-prepared and strict crowd control was implemented. I'm not really a fan nor a follower, I'm actually one of those antis who think that they are a bunch of second-grade trying hard copycat but as the tickets were given for free, I can't pass the opportunity to go out and unwind. For a mom like me, a time like that is precious, whether I like what I'm seeing or not, just to breath outside of our house is a luxury enough.

Back to the concert, we didn't fell in line for a long time as the ticket we had were of VIP seats but I applaud the bouncers and staffs as the stanchions in the entrance area were all guarded and everyone were polite to the hotty-hungry teens. I can't help but giggle, err, smirk, everytime I hear the group of girls whispering loudly of who their biases are and how to die for they are. Girls will always be girls!

The VIP area had velvet rope upfront, I guess, it is a part of the crowd control in a grander way, I mean, it's velvet rope man, it's like the academy awards without the red carpet. I had a good time chatting with my cousins while waiting for the show to start, talking about being very important persons, at least, at that time, the world we live in and the hyper teens behind us. It's not always about the show, isn't it, sometimes it's all about the company.

It was rather peaceful and generally quiet up until the group of semi-good looking boys came out of the stage, oh men, how the crowd roars. The screaming fangirls went crazy, and I mean, crazy, I wonder if their mouth and throat ripped from shouting and screaming so much. I was even thinking that at that point, no amount of barricades can ever hinder them from mobbing the performers. I wonder if I was like that during my heydays, when Eraserheads and Rivermaya were the in thing...

My song of the month, actually, it has been more than a month, I just can't get over it, love, love, love this song!

That's When I Love You
by Aslyn

When you have to look away
When you don't have much to say
That's when I love you
I love you, just that way
To hear you stumble when you speak
Or see you walk with two left feet
That's when I love you
I love you, endlessly
And when your mad coz you lost a game
Forget I'm waiting in the rain
Baby I love you,
I love you anyway
Here's my promise made tonight
You can count on me for life
That's when I love you
When nothing you do can change my mind
The more I learn, The more I love
The more my heart can't get enough
That's when I love you,
when I love you no matter what
So when you turn to hide your eyes
Cause the movie it made you cry
That's when I love you
I love you a little more each time
And when you can't quite match your clothes
Or when you laugh at your own jokes
That's when I love you
I love you, more than you'll know
And when you forget that we had a date
Or that look that you get when you show up late
Baby I love you, I love you anyway
Here's my promise made tonight
You can count on me for life
That's when I love you
When nothing you do can change my mind
The more I learn, the more I love
The more my heart can't get enough
That's when I love you,
When I love you no matter what
That's when I love you
When nothing baby
Nothing you do could change my mind
The more I learn, The more I love
The more my heart can't get enough
That's when I love you,
When I love you no matter what
No matter what

A friend sent me this through an e-mail and I thought, it wouldn't hurt to share it with you guys.

Let's all be happy, let's all try!

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches ;)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain get idle.

“An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”
And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and Lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants and hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Have I told you lately that I love you, oops, I typed wrong *smirks*. Have I told you peeps that I and a friend plan on opening an online store. She is a stay-at-home mom and Pinay immigrant in the US so she has access to those boutique sales and I am an online-addicted stay-at-home mom so I can stay and update online like 24/7 so we kind of fit, don't you think? We complete each other *lol*.

I already created an e-mail account, I also opened an account in Facebook though it is still inactive at the moment, and I am in the process of making a Multiply account, and that's what I've been busy about, aside from those Thai movies I've been obsessing about, as you might have notice in my last few posts. My business partner, on the other hand, is busy shopping her way around in L.A, looking for those pretty little stuff that we're gonna sell and hunting for the perfects sales. We're also in brainstorming on logo design ideas, the best one that will fit our shop name and will attract the attention of our possible clientele. Any suggestions?

Wish us luck, okay!

So, I was wondering around the world wide web a few weeks ago and I read a blog posts about freelance writing and as I was kind of on my toes and willing to work at that time, key word - at that time *lol*, I looked around the site and signed up, I did bid on at least two work opportunities but I haven't check back since then, yeah, yeah, that's attention and dedication for you *grins*. One of the many tasks I saw on that freelance job site is a temporary position on a search marketing agency, I was tempted to bid but as I am not really knowledgeable in the field and as I don't wanna give the wrong impression to employers, I decided not to. Now that I'm back, for a longer time I hope, I'm sort of itching to check if I got any offers or if my bid pushed through but at the back of my mind, I just knew that if ever I was given the task, it would be too late to check on it now, with a two week gap, those job offers must have been void by now. Me and procrastination, oh yeah, blame it on Thai movies!

My son still has to go to school today, we have to wake up and do the morning rush till this Friday, April 8 *sigh*, I can't wait for the school year to end.

Anyways, as I woke up early, I decided on making my early morning productive and go on an inbox sweeping spree *grins*. Ever since I started blogging and put ads on my blogs, my inbox had an influx in e-mails, I can get as much as a hundred a day which can then accumulate to more than a thousand in a span of two weeks. Easy for the senders, too bad for me, as I am the one sacrificing my time deleting all the e-mails, most of which I have no interest in. But I do wonder, does the bulk messaging system that most companies use have email marketing tracking that let's them know how successful their efforts are in reaching out to people online. I was just thinking, that all are wasted if the recipients are all like me, trashing the e-mails that I don't care about without giving it a look *grins*.

In fairness, it took me more than an hour to clean out my inbox, two weeks of non-checking and reading made my e-mail account a jungle of unread and unsolicited e-mails. Blame it on Thai movies!


Been away from my blog for almost two weeks, what I've been up to? Thai movies!!!

I so love the movie - Crazy Little Thing Called Love and I so love the theme song - Someday :)

by Boyd Kosiyapong feat. Marisa Sukosol

I do not know how much longer
That I have to survive with all the
I've been hiding all the truth in my heart

Every time we meet
Every time you turn my face to
Although I look indifferent
Do you know how much I have to force yourself?

Can you hear my heart calling for you, love you?
But I could not open my heart for anyone to know
Can you hear it?
My heart kept waiting there for you
Waiting for your open
and hope you will realize ..

Though I love you
Although I feel
but deep inside, I do not dare to tell you
