Hello there, my lovelies! I know it’s been a long while since I’ve posted something here on my main blog and I believe I need to give you guys a brief explanation about what was going on, so I’ve decided to post this quick update.

I have been very busy for the past few months on my online jobs and I am currently connected to this company that reviews websites for ranking on analytics and it took most of my time. I work 6 hours a day reviewing sites and even if my IC sucks, I managed to be prompt and on schedule. While this work is giving me so much happiness; aside from the compensation of course! It got me more knowledgeable about how other sites operate and how to promote my own website’s rank and content. But unfortunately, because of my work and my mommy duties, I need to set things right to make it more comfortable for me; because who loves to stay up late and suffer from lack of sleep, right?

Hence today I will be narrowing my websites from three to one. That means I will be maintaining this website and let go of the other two. Yeah, it’s kind of hurtful to let go, but I think this will be vital for my improvement and time management.

Then after our family holiday this weekend, expect on time posts and stories here on my main blog and this will be updated it on a weekly basis.

By the way, my two sites are fine. I am handling them down to a friend who also loves blogging so they will be easily taken care. Since those we’re still monetized, I still get a portion of its income so we’re still on business baby! Lol!

So that’s basically it. I will be with you shortly and have a happy summer.

Aroma of Incense

 photo incence_zps8tss80vq.jpg

Ever since the start of the new year I have been using incense to get rid of that funky smell in my household and now that I have a dog, there are sometimes “doggy” kind of smell that lingers around the house and it is never pleasant especially when you have friends coming over.

 photo incence2_zpstufzhylp.jpg

Incense is an aromatic biotic material which releases fragrant smoke when burned. It is practiced for a variety of functions, including the ceremonies of religion, to overcome bad smells, repel insects, spirituality, aromatherapy, meditation, and for simple pleasure. In my case I use it to remove odor and it also have that very relaxing aroma that hangs around long after the incense had burned away.

And then how about you, have you ever tried using incense in your house? What are some of your thoughts about it? Comment if you want to share.

Finding the perfect Instruments Online

It is actually not easy to determine the perfect tool for our fashion show since we are already running out of time and the location is far from the city as well. This year, the organizers also noticed that we are lacking in equipment, especially for the shows musical prospective.

That is why I came up with this idea of fronting for it online. And after barely a few scrolls, protools 11 shows up and right away I loved the thought. We replaced all our old and worn out instrument with just a few transaction and my boss now have that great smile on their facial expressions. Good thing I had the immediate plan and thank God it is all in the internet. We’re going to start the show in a few days and all is set.

An Open Letter to my Ex Friend

 photo open letter_zps7fkx7hgf.jpg

Dear Karen,
I need to tell you this before I take you out of my life. I know what you’re up to and stop pretending to be naive especially when you bring up my past to a mutual friend and think it won’t get back to me. Your excuse for being called out? “What goes around comes back around!” So classy! So epic! To think after all those years, if I somehow hurt you, you can just let me know about it or just have it fixed with just a simple heart to heart talk.. But you never did that simply for the fact that you hate me for having the life that you never had and backstabbing is your way to get even. But FYI, we’re never even after all those double-crossings.. It’s just so funny that you spilled out everything to a complete stranger that doesn’t even know you and thinks that you’re completely my opposite. Just in case you forgot, we did a lot of things that are totally the same years ago and you even did the worst things! My life is complete now, everything is falling into its proper places because I earned it and I prayed hard for it. Now if you’re not happy for me, maybe you’re right.. I am not a loss to you and the feelings are mutual. Have a nice life and godbless your unhappy heart.

Your Ex friend,
Ems

Signature Equipment

Another year has gone and I must say I have managed fairly good for my music studio business. It all worked very well and my clients are totally satisfied with the service. This time< it will be the best time to reward them with the nicest catch. I am considering of purchasing some signature equipment for them to love.

First point, the bass amplifier! And I am so happy that I found this Jeff berlin bass online. I fell in love with it the minute I watched this on the web site. It is so sleek and perfect for my studio. Immediately, all I need to do is to slow down and wait for it to be shipped and all my other purchased equipment as well. It is indeed a happy day!

Thank You, 2015, Hello 2016!

 photo new years_zpsi2xv3v2r.jpg

Another year is here and we are all geared up for the challenges ahead. I thank God for giving me a loving daughter, a hard working husband, and good health. Of course I am grateful for my friends that stayed by my side no matter how tough the situation is. I owe you a lot, guys especially to my best friend that’s always there for me even if she’s far away. I lost a friend later this year but I guess we are better off this way.. I have been back stabbed and that was never a surprise since I knew her for years and it is not the first time for her to do such a thing so I wish her all the best! 2015 was a good year for me and I keep on praying for another more amazing year. Happy New Year to all of us. May the grace of God fill our homes with harmony and shower us with love, happiness, blessings, and peace.

Crowdsource the BLISS of a #LiveFreePH

bliss sunlife

How do you feel about the future? Is your family doing okay? Are the people around you hopeful or gloomy? With the Brighter Life Index: Social Sentiment or BLISS, Sun Life will show how optimism, prosperity, and the bayanihan spirit can produce a positive ripple from ourselves to our loved ones and to the community where we live.

BLISS is a Facebook application that aims to get the pulse of Filipinos about their current financial situation as well as their outlook for the future.

“BLISS gives us the canvas to paint our #LiveFreePH campaign. Through crowdsourcing, we seek the brightest spots while also determining the areas that are in need of a bit more sunshine,” explained Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa. “Together with the Sun Life Foundation, we will help turn dim prospects to bright opportunities.”

How BLISS happens

Harnessing the power of crowdsourcing, BLISS gathers insights directly from consumers by asking Filipinos about their current state and their outlook for the future. Responses will be collected primarily via Facebook.

The results will be embodied by a map of the Philippines, where positive sentiments will be represented by sunny weather, while negative ones will be indicated by thunderstorms. This will be updated real time, with different aggregations available for viewing.

BLISS will also radiate warmth in real life, as the Sun Life Foundation pledges to match survey responses with a donation to help localities with bleak outlooks, as indicated by the stormy icons in the results map. Inspired by the practice of bayanihan (communal work), the initiative translates insight to action, via the information that will be shared by online users.

“Sun Life Foundation believes in action that is powered by insight, and we’re bringing that to the social media platform through BLISS,” said Sun Life Foundation Executive Director Anne Zillah Flores. “We’re taking it further by actually responding to the gaps that will be determined. We will fund projects to help communities with bleak prospects so they can adopt a brighter outlook.”

BLISS to #LiveFreePH

From the present to the future, BLISS narrates the changing story of Filipinos from multiple points of view: self, family, and community. Income, health, and work-life balance are identified as personal concerns; food, nutrition and financial security comprise the familial territory; while access to quality education, healthcare, and livelihood opportunities are the societal factors that impact the nation as a whole. When addressed properly, these concerns can become the building blocks of a nationwide movement towards financial independence.

“From BLISS, we lay down the blueprint of #LiveFreePH – to practice foresight by being conscious of our needs while sharing the benefits of living the brighter life,” Lopa said. “We hope that by working together towards financial freedom, we can create a story of a prosperous and optimistic nation, because in our journey to financial freedom, we can go far if we go together.”

Share the BLISS to help communities in need and the chance to win awesome prizes like an iPad Air. Go to http://bit.ly/1hDBxhn to begin.

Choose Happiness

Have you been bullied and humiliated online? Do you know how it feels to hate that person and you want to blow her brain out her freaking head when you see her? I have been meddling with my mommy life lately and it came to a stage that even other people attempted to force themselves into this little time of mine. And this is the tale of my ordeal.

It all began when I was designated to do a blog spot about this certain site that takes on human behaviors and aside from my article, I was likewise asked to perform a social experiment on Facebook by posting a conclusive status so that I can understand what the response of my acquaintances about it. Among all of my 600 Facebook friends, there this one woman who reacted so furiously and even carried out things that is contrary to my closing post. It appears that she is very upset about that situation that she even sent pictures on Instagram trying to bully me and my personal life.

At first it made me really upset that she acted as if I was hitting on her about that post where it was just a social experiment at the first place. Then to my ire, I put up some quotes around her spoiled attitude and impulsive self that lay her into so much fury that she stalked my Instagram everyday and posted it to some other pages on the net.

I knew more or less what she did, but I never responded again, but it got to a point that I was really mad and burst my anger towards her that we eventually had a cyber war every night. We threw some hateful words about each other and we both stayed up all night just to fight. I know it’s sick and crazy and I realized now that it was a big mistake that I gave in to her invitation. I never should have fought back in anger. I wasted my entire night acting as an idiot just like her. It was just a job! But someone messed up and I actually jumped into an idiocracy.

Hence I have determined to bring down my Instaram account and created a new one that’s out of her range. Today, I happily lived my day without that crazy stalker. And my life again regains its color because I chose to be happy and stayed away from trouble.

I shared this to all just to remind us that we made some tough decisions in our lifetimes and we messed up because of that. Merely it is never too late to turn the page, stop and listen to your heart and choose to be glad.

We are the one who’s in charge of our lives and even if choosing is a bit hard, I know that decision will be worth the effort. Just go for it and be happy.

Style Event

I have been tempted to go to a fashion show last weekend and it was the most memorable and amazing event ever. Ever since I started blogging and staying online for years, I transformed myself into an avid fashion enthusiast and when I got wind about the invitation, I was then glad.

At the event, everything was in place and amazingly organized. The stage, ignition, and sound clarity are awesome since they are using the musicians friend pa system in their sound control.

All systems ready and the show began with a blast. I feel like I’m a New York fashion week event. So far that was the best event that I have attended. I am looking forward for more events to attend soon. The blessings keep coming!
