Corrupted Memory Card

I got problems on my memory card yesterday when all my pictures can no longer be downloaded on the computer. My brother checked it and a virus corrupted all my photo files. I was quite worried because there were important files in it that I have not yet downloaded. I think the option is to reformat the card to make it usable again.

Spin Dryer

The non working holidays were very productive for me. I was able to spent time at home cleaning and arranging my personal stuffs. Also my laundry that waited for couple of days was finally done. Thanks for the help of this spin dryer machine that saved my time from drying thick and heavy clothes like towels, comforters, blankets, pillow cases, bedsheets etc.It easily removes moisture from loads of clothing after being hand washed. I consider this as one important  appliance at home.

Holy Week

The Christian world is having a special observance this Holy Week, the final week of Lent. It commemorates the Lords' last week before His death. The festivals in holy week include Palm Sunday, Maunday Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Together with Easter this is the most sacred part of the Christian calendar- the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. May this week be a great time for reflection of God's undying love to all of us.

Gift Certificate Redemption

I had all my time last Saturday so I visited the nearby mall to checked out the total accumulated points of my shoppers' card. My last claim was last year and since then I already earned some points until this month. I was requested to present my card to the credit section located in the fourth floor. The customer service was courteous to attend to my requests and she gave to me two gift certificates that were only valid in the dry goods section. I immediately shop for some affordable yet usable items. I got a boxer for my brother and some undies for me. Some personal stuffs that were worthy courtesy of my shoppers card.

Orange Sarong

This sarong was given to me by a friend and glad to received this kind of multi purpose fabric. A great personal essential perfect for summer outings as wrapped around the waist and worn as skirt, cover up, blanket or as an outdoor shield from the sun. There are many shops here who sell this kind of fabric and they make pajamas, blouses,hats, slippers, purse, men's polo shirt, etc. out of the fabric. The local and foreign tourists are often the market of this product.

Summer, Rainy Days


The summer season is here again. I can already feel the warm temperature outside especially during day time from 8:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. For the past three days there were weather changes as heavy rainfalls occurred in the late afternoon until  evening. Some main streets here in the city were flooded and many commuters were stranded. This maybe the result of climate change as the weather bureau announced on the news that the people will expect more rains these summer months.

Flooring by Sears Home Improvement (March)

I am very busy for the past weeks because I started the renovation at home. The project is quite meticulous because there are lots of things that need improvements like the installation and repairs bathrooms, bedrooms, family rooms, garage, utility rooms and the kitchen area. The first area that I personally focus for repair now is the floor in the living room. My friend suggested that it would be good to Laminate Floor for durability and protection. I am thankful for her because it really is important especially that the floor is one of the basic foundation of a house. The area will hopefully be finished this week and I am happy that I got some skilled and excellent workforce to do the special job. The overall home improvement will take some more months to finished but hopefully will end up very well constructed.

Binibining Pilipinas 2011

I watched last night the search for this year's Binibining Pilipinas and the winner for the Universe title is Miss Shamcey SupSup. A beauty and brain lady who stand out among other contestants. I quoted her on the question and answer and she was asked with this question; What worthy cause do you identify yourself with and why?"Her answer was: "I think the one worthy cause I can identify myself with is valuing education. Because I believe education is something that cannot be taken away from you. You can have money, you can have fame, but in the end, it can be taken from you. But education will always be there to help you.". I hope she will make the country proud again as she will be the country's representative to the Miss Universe beauty pageant this year. Congratulations!

New Php 20 note

This is latest Php 20 note released by the BSP signed by the new President Benigno Aquino Jr. I got this as a change when I bought some items in the grocery last weekend. I like its modern design and color.  The note is not yet circulated in the public but eventually it will replace the old twenty pesos. I hope to get some more new notes for 50, 100, 500, 1000  and include them in my posts here.

Afternoon skywatch

I took this shot one weekend afternoon at home. The rain was over that time and it amazed me to saw the sky in this color. There were reddish lights behind the gray clouds. It is always fun and impressive to look up the sky and see its natural changes.
