So Many Things That I'm Thankful For as I Joined Pinay Mommy Online's Thanksgiving Give away

First of all, I would like to share and thanked God for the great things that He had given me. He has been good to me all the time. He has walked with me through hard times, and He has given me the strength to meet the challenges ahead. He has showered me with blessings without measure and He surrounded me with His love and care and provided for our needs, and even our wants. I am so thankful to God that He had given me such a wonderful, spirit filled husband together with his family who has been used as an instrument for my family. My Mom and I are so happy now that we are all united in Christ. Although she is miles away from me but God's presence in our family binded our relationship together and makes it even more stronger as we continue in serving Him. We are thankful for the growing faith of the believers in Christ. Our church is now filled with faithful, energetic, friendly and committed young people who are willing to be used by God. He has given us exceeding great and

Be Smoke Free!

For those who are heavy smokers, I know it is quite difficult to quit smoking immediately that's why new devices like the electronic cigarette represents a unique options which is an enhanced and safer version of a cigarette that provides a small amount of nicotine with each inhalation.

We Stand Together

We stand together in prayer And we stand together with our hearts joined as one as we give thanks and praises to God for all He has done.  God brings forth beautiful, spontaneous worship and when blended with prayer, it becomes a powerful weapon of His glory. PhotoHunt - "Standing"

Sliding doors within the home looks attractive and functional. However, it may look pale and dull if the windows treatment is not well fitted to the door.

Can We Really Make Easy Money on Ebay?

We've all heard many successful stories of people getting rich online just by selling items in Ebay. I can attest to that because I myself make money on eBay since 2005 and until today, I'm still earning money on it just by selling some of my stuffs. A few weeks ago, I sold our old printer worth $50. I am so happy that at least I am earning money out from my old and used items like my shoes, bags, jeans, accessories and even junked items like computer parts and scraps. I had actually made a lot of money out of it that’s why I consider selling items in Ebay as one of my primary money maker online. One of my techniques so I can have a good and fast sales is that I usually sell my items in cheaper price and I always make my items free of shipping fee. Here in the Philippines, our normal shipping rate costs around $5 to $10. It usually depends on the item, how much is your declared value and the location of the item where it has to be delivered. I just include the normal shippin

Another Unexpected Winning and Blessings Received!

My Laptop's Low Battery Life

I purchased this Acer emachine D732Z laptop a few weeks ago because I donated my old BENQ laptop to our church. My old lappy was actually one of the oldest laptop model. It has a battery problem and I can't bring it anywhere. It's so heavy and I can't use it when it is not plugged in an outlet. I was actually looking for a pink notebook which can also be fitted in my bag but my hubby suggested that I should look for the good specs, not just the looks and style...blah!blah! So, he was the one who looked for the best laptop available here in our place since I don't know much about those certain specs. Were also looking for a huge LCD screen, with DVD writer/ROM, huge memory, hard disk and video card. So at last, we finally found the right one.  This Acer emachine D732Z laptop costs P19,995 with free retractable mouse and notebook cooler. We just have to add P500 if we want an installation for the operating system, programs and other applications. Well, my hubby is alre

Yay! This Blog is Now PR4!

Whoa! It's another great blessing for me to start off my new year. PR updates is one of the most talked about topics of my fellow mommy bloggers here. I actually did not checked out the PR Checker site. I just saw my PR's updated status at the footer of my blog. I'm so glad to know that somehow my blog receives a greater amount of traffic because of my relevant and important posts written in it. We all know that those who have important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results. Checking our Pagerank is very interesting and I think the numbers are important part of SEO. They can give us a peek of what kind of progress we are making with our SEO campaigns in Google since a high ranking in Google is much more valuable than all of the other search engines combined. Now if you want to know how I got my PR4, I actually don't know but maybe some basic tips could help where I make sure that my posts are keyword rich,

Young at Heart

                         (Me in black together with the young people from our church) We had a blast and fun Sunday yesterday when hubby and I attended a gathering of all young people from different churches here in our city. We accompanied the young people from our church as we joined the Inter Youth Fellowship. This gathering is usually held once in every month where young teens will celebrate and experience God's goodness as they sing praises to Him, listen to His word and be revived.                            (from left: hubby and I, my sis-in-law and her hubby in yellow) Our music team was also invited to perform where my hubby played the guitar together with my brother in law who played the drums. I gave way to our young people who will lead the vocals since the songs are meant for teenagers. It's quite unsuitable for me. lol!  We also feel like young teens at that time since  most of our companion are single ladies and young gents. ^_^

WiFi Modem from PLDT

Now that my mom will spend her holiday again for a couple of weeks next month, she will definitely bring her notebook and were gonna be having a dilemma again on how she can still get connected to the internet. We used SmartBro Plug-it Prepaid USB before but it costs us a lot since we always have to load it. They said that P100 is equivalent to 5 hours of internet usage. What? are they kidding us? it only consumes 2 hours because of the very slow connection. My mom always ask me to buy another load for her internet. Geez! I am so sick and tired of that. Not to mention that we already wasted a lot of money. Ive heard about PLDT's WiFi Modem that has a four-port hub switch which can accommodate for up to four wired and multiple wireless connections within a range of 25 meters from anywhere at home. My mom is always renting an apartment near the beach every time she spends her holiday here in the Philippines. I also want to bring my laptop there so I think this WiFi Modem is just t

Adding New Blogs

Hi Friends! How's everybody doing? today is Monday so it means where back to our usual work, back to school and for blogging addict like me, I'm also back and visible again here in the blogging world. Whoa! I just had a very busy life offline that's why I wasn't able to update my blogs and my 2 new blogs. Adding new blogs is quite addicting but I just find it hard on how to set up my blog. It takes a lot of time since I have to find some nice template, themes, blog layout etc. that could fit my blog's topic. Ive been looking for a nice "Kikay" looking Fashionista Wordpress Theme for my Fashionably Trendy blog as well as a formal and presentable blogger template for our church Shield of Victory blog. Any free ready-made blog templates site with wide variety of choices to choose from that you can recommend to me my friends? You're help and advice is very much appreciated. Thanks so much!

Fully Booked!

One of the reasons why my mom had an early month of holiday for this year is because she wanted to see and witness the Kaamulan festival from our hometown in Bukidnon. It is usually held annually from the second half of February to March 10 that's why she had already booked her flight a few months ago.  She wants to stay for several days in Bukidnon to spend some time with her long lost friends so she asked help from me if I could make a room reservation. My hometown is quite far away from my city where I'm presently residing with so I decided to make a phone reservation on some hotels and inns there. But I was surprise when I found out that as of this month, all the rooms are fully booked already.  Although there are some inns who said that they have a vacant room on March 5th, but I was not convinced and I want to make sure that there is a room for us to stay during the festival. Good thing I remembered my cousin who lives from our hometown whom I can easily asked for som

Diaper Rash No More with Boudreaux's Butt Paste

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste . All opinions are 100% mine.      As a first time mom, I could say that caring for my baby's health is nerve wrecking specially when I noticed some signs of illness. I just have that feeling of fear and being worried that's why I am doing the best  that I can to cure the pain. I could still remember those sleepless nights and uncomfortable days when my baby is suffering from diaper rash. Thanks to my mom who introduced and recommend  Boudreaux's Butt Paste   to me as an effective treatment for diaper rash.

The Angel of My Domain Blogs

For a newbie user of Wordpress like me, I could not continue using Wordpress without the help of my Angel. She is such a very kind and helpful person. Although I think she did not noticed me before but Ive seen and noticed her way back a long time ago when we were still young, skinny and sexy... lol! She used to go to our i-cafe together with her best friend who is also our family friend. One thing that we share something in common is we have the same faith that's why when I saw her again here in the blogging world, it was easy for me to get along with her. I became an avid follower and reader of her blogs. I even joined the Summer Swimsuit Give away before from her Pinay Mommy Online blog where I won a tictoc T-shirt and a butterfly mini-dress. I also joined her Free Domain Names May 2010 Give away and luckily I won. This is where my My Daily Notes blog was born. After a few months, I finally decided to self-host this blog to Wordpress with the help of course of my Mommy Angel.

Blessings Received and Shared To Others

I just can't express my happiness and I am so thankful to God for all the good things He has done in my life. I started my new year with lots of prizes and surprises received from online contests and give aways, including my free additional blogs and even lots of surprises that I received from my family and friends. Starting off from the recent contest where I won a digital camera. I thanked God for this wonderful blessings He had given me. I have been blessed of having the material things that I need and desired with. Since I already have 2 digital cameras with me, I decided to give the other one to our young Pastor because he needs it for their weekly Youth Fellowship for the Campus Ministry. A month ago, with God's favor and grace, our church bought an LCD projector for such a low price. And since it needs a laptop so that we can place the songs we need for our Praise and Worship Service, I donated my old laptop so we can used it every Sunday for our Divine Service. I rem

My Unexpected Winning from a Pick a Prize Contest!

Last week, I joined a contest from Facebook which was sponsored by Acer laptop and Windows7. It's called a Post Word! Contest where I have to post 1 sentence on the windows7ako Facebook page wall why I want an Acer laptop with Windows7 for New Year. I just simply followed the instructions from the contest where I have to email windows7 with my registered Facebook email so I can receive my Passcode. I received an email from the windows7 team and I'm so happy that I am qualified to win prizes. I printed out the email and brought it at the participating Acer Concept Store at Gaisano Interpace here in our city. I actually almost forgot that I joined this contest since I was busy offline but thanked God that I was reminded when I saw the printed email from my desk. It was said from the mechanics that prizes can be picked and claimed within 7 days. Good thing I was able to reach the last day of claiming my prize and that was yesterday when I went to the mall to buy a surprise cake

Made to Measure or Ready Made Curtains?

I consider curtains as an amazing decorations for our home. They are also less expensive than blinds and they are easy to install on our windows. We can choose to buy ready made or custom made curtains. Ready made curtains are usually priced lower than made to measure curtains. There are hundreds of designs of these types that are available in malls and you can buy and install curtain easily. There are also a lot of fabric types for ready made curtains and you will definitely find something that will suit your needs and fit your budget.However, custom made curtains are usually manufactured using good quality fabrics. Low priced fabrics are usually thinner than the expensive ones and they may get damaged much faster. Ready made curtains are usually manufactured, so when it comes to its size, there’s nothing much to choose from. If you have a custom made window, chances are you will have to deal with a set that is either to short or too long for the window. The good thing is long curta

Language Barrier No More

I had these recent chat conversation with my Fil-Swiss half-sister and I was just amused how I am trying hard to learn how to write Swiss-German language. And since I find it hard to communicate with her, I just rely on using those language translator services that are available online for free. It is a great help for me because I can easily respond to her every time she wants to make a conversation with me. I'm also trying to learn how to speak Swiss-German language using an audio language program. It is a unique audio method that allows me as the listener to learn the proper pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar without repetitive rote learning, in a similar way just like how we acquired using our native language. I actually know how to speak a little but I am eager to learn more so I can speak fluently and confidently. With the help of this audio language program , there will be no more language barrier for me and my sister because I know it would be easier for me to understan

...What a Wonderful World!

I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom for me and you And I think to myself... What a Wonderful World! Okay enough with the! I know you guys got carried away with this beautiful song but to be honest, I was actually trying to figure out the meaning of the song because it is somehow related to our vision. Our eyes are one of the most important parts of our bodies. Many people wear glasses or contacts like me for corrective vision, but even people with perfect sight must need to take good care for their eyes regularly to keep them healthy, refreshed and in shape. We don't always notice our vision changing because our brains tends to compensate for changes on our day-to-day life activities. A simple way to make sure our eyes are healthy is by making an appointment with an optometrist. Even though you may not have any problems with your vision, your eye doctor needs to check for signs of disease or disorder annually. You may think your eyes are healt

Hidden Gold Treasures in The Philippines, Does it Still Exist?

(I was looking for some paid opps today when I saw a task that talks about buying gold online. Then the word "gold" suddenly pops up in my mind, so here I am sharing my nostalgic story of my uncle's "Indiana Jones"este treasure hunting experience) ^_^ Did you know that until today there are still many people who are digging out looking for the hidden gold treasures which was said to be found here in the remote areas and mountainous place in the island of Mindanao? Two of our common friend are actually involved in finding and digging gold treasures right now. We may not know it, but there are literally billions of gold, statues and other Asian looted treasures buried in hundreds of secret locations all throughout the country. My family and relatives was actually involved on that digging and treasure hunting thingy before. I remember way back during my childhood days, when my uncle who is a treasure hunter used to live with us, I learned a lot from him about  a

I Won and I Learned More About Blogging

Did you know that I don't have any idea what are some of these prizes I had received from Sir Jaypee's Christmas Give away contest? Geez! I'm such a "noob" since most of my prizes were theme packages for Wordpress, programs, applications, free hosting and domain names. I'm getting used in using blogspot that's why I am not yet so familiar with Wordpress even though I already have a self-hosted blog at Wordpress. I am still trying to learn how to use those plug-ins,applications and more. When the sponsors from Sir Jaypee's contest contacted me so I could immediately start using my prizes and their services , it took me several days to finally decided to used it. Why? because I'm still trying to learn and educate myself what are those programs and products are for and how it will benefit me and my blog. Some of the prizes I received was the 1-year Publisher Plan from Scribe SEO worth ($324). As I checked out the site, it will help in achieving hig
