Getting Back to It

I have not been showing much love to my own blog.  It's been ages since I posted a decent article on this space.  I really want to get back into it and write again.  I didn't realized that getting into IT (which by the way is a creative outlet) would stifle my other creative sides. I have been neglecting my creative side on the culinary front.  Forgive me my Food Blog.  I'll get back to you soon.

And this blog too, I have nearly forgotten.  It was a good thing I still remembered my own password here. Actually, thanks to Google for now owning blogspot and having all my accounts linked together.  This where I pour my contribution to the literary world.  I am a writer at heart too.  I need to be able to express my ideas through words and man, I miss it so much.

So, I make this promise to feed my other creative sides.  I'll have to break the cycle of being stuck in purely numerical pursuits.  I'm not saying that I had enough of the IT world, but I just need small breaks from it.  Just like now, I am in the middle of executing test cases, but I just suddenly had the urge to write on my blog again after 5 years.  It actually feels great, and I think I will keep it up.

Energy Crisis Busters

A lot of people say that Green Energy cannot really take root if the governments of the World don't commit to finding greener sources of energy. Well, I think that there is a big chance that it will happen. If the governments aren't doing anything about this, someone else will. In fact, N-Viro International Corporation is already leading the way to renewable energy by sharing their technology and ideas. The website has all the information on their projects and the technology that they have developed.

The Day Stars Fall

I was very surprise to hear on the news yesterday that Farrah Fawcett has lost her battle with cancer. Even though it was an expected outcome in her journey, anyone would still be to shock and surprise when a star like her dies. Her's was a very public battle and struggle, and everyone was really sad about it.
I was at work when I was still thinking about Farrah and her role in Charlie's Angels; when I read on the online news that Michael Jackson was rushed to the UCLA hospital. I didn't think that it was really bad, since hearing about him being rushed to a hospital was really getting common now. A couple of hours later, I viewed the news again, and I was really shocked and nearly in tears to see that Michael Jackson has already died.
I started to get hooked on the news. I watched and read videos and articles from CNN. It was a very sureal news. I probably felt the same shock when I saw the news of the 9/11 attacks. Who would think that a legend like Michael Jackson would die so suddenly? Even his own critics were probably dumbfounded by this sad sad news.
A few people were already mourning the death of Farrah that day, and all of a sudden the king of pop is gone too. It's just a day that a couple of big stars fell.

The Right Place for Home

When considering the right place for a home, I always think that the environment plays a big part in the decision. The environment includes considering the neighborhood, and the weather of the place. I'm always worried about a place which is too cold or too hot. I've come from a country always battered by storms, and the main thing about our home is the humidity. I've always wished that I had a home like the homes in Scottsdale because the weather there is just perfect. I've heard that homes there are just in the right place, but for me it is the right place for home.

In the Middle of a Recession

The world has fallen into a recession, and I never thought that we could be affected by it in a big way. I've always thought that it would be alright soon. The recession has hit hard in the US, and proof it was the recent news that we've gotten about some of our colleagues.
With the news, we are just a bit relieved and worried at the same time. We are relieved that we are safe from the effects of this recession in the US. We are also worried because we wouldn't be expecting any changes in our situation. We probably won't get any increases and bonuses this year. This is not actually very good for me since I've been struggling lately with my finances. All I can say is that we're just surviving. Hopefully, a gleam of light is in the horizon for us.

Bid for Gadgets

I am not a fan of bid sites out there, but I am a big fan of gadgets. I would love to get my hands on the latest and hippest things out there. But off course, money is always an issue. In this world now a days you can't get anything for free. If it is advertised as free it might be a scam.
It's a good thing that we have the online bid sites. They make acquiring gadgets a bit more fun and exciting, and whole lot cheaper than buying directly from electronic stores. The concept of auction bargin ipod xbox cheap PS3 is just very appealing to me. Specially for the later, I have been really craving for it.
There is a bid site for everyone, and everwhere. There is one for Australia, and New Zealead have their own bid site too.

Movies to Watch Out For

It's been a while since I've watched a blockbuster in the movies. I admit that I wish I could just watch them myself, but I always have to consider my family when watching movies. The last 2 movies that I've seen were a chick flick with my wife, and an animated film with the kids. I appreciated the movies, but I guess I am more of a science fiction or block buster movie goer. There have been several movies lately that I have missed.
I was not able to see the Watchmen. I also missed watching Underworld 3. Recently, I wanted to watch X-Men origins: Wolverine, and the new and hipper version of Star Trek. I even missed seeing Dragon Ball Evolution. The reviews might have been bad, but it's still a big adaptation of my favorite anime series.
At this rate I could miss the next big movies: Angels and Demons, GI Joe, Transformers 2, and even Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Oops, maybe the last two not so much. I might be able to watch those with the kids.

An Unusual Online Arena

I have been hanging around the Internet for quite some time now, and I admit that I started here because of online games. I also got hooked with chat, but my first love here was the online multiplayer arena. I have seen a few types of games: puzzles, adventure, and even role playing. With an abundance of new online gaming arenas out there, it's no wonder people get hook on the Internet.
There are have been recent revolutions in the online gaming circle. Usually, games are about fantasies, adventure, and fighting. No one has ever dared to create an arena where the basis are things in the real world. It would be rare to see such games. I was surprised and excited to find a virtual stock market arena. It is a place on the Net where you can learn to trade in the stock market, and even get a chance to compete for prizes. It has a more professional feel to it, and would surely be a big help to gain knowledge about the stock market without taking the risk of getting it it first.

Party for my Baby

It was my baby's birthday last Friday, and I had to pull all the stops to give her a party. We had invited a few friends over for dinner the next day. We couldn't do on a Friday night of course. I brought out my inner chef to cook a feast for a few Filipino friends, and few other friends here. My menu was simple, but I guess it was all right.
On my menu, I had Filipino style spaghetti, Filipino style Chicken Macaroni salad, special Fried Chicken, and Kaldereta (a Filipino Beef Stew). I was quite pleased with what I prepared, and considering the fact that I spent the whole of Saturday morning preparing it. A few of the guests also brought a few things on the table, and they were a hit too. I had the best compliment ever about my cooking that night. Our Russian friend told me that the Kalderata I prepared tasted exactly like her grandmothers stew. What were the odds of that?

Off course, at the end of the day, I did all that for my Baby. It was her time to celebrate, and I saw that she really enjoyed her day. She was with both friends and family.

29th Birthday Celebration (21) by you.

Property Management 101

In a world where the home is one of the most important place that you have to take care of, there are still a lot of people having a hard time to find their place. I mean, it's not really because there isn't enough houses to go around; but there are not too many good property management companies.
Property management is all about satisfying the market of home buyers, sellers, and even renters. And Real Property Management is just so hard to come by these days. There are only a few exceptional companies, who can truly say that they have understood property management 101. And you know what, if you do come by one, be sure to stay close to them.
