Summer Getaway at Pinamuntugan Island

Pinamuntugan Island has very light sand, though it's not white. But the water is bluish-green. When we were swimming the current was quite strong in some parts that we were being tossed in the water like dolls.

The Breathtaking Aguirangan Island

It took my breath away! Its 1.5-hectare formation with white beach and crystal clear waters was so beautiful!

Have you ever seen a jellyfish up close? I have. I think it's one of the most beautiful creatures of the sea.

iPods: Great Gift Ideas

I’m the type of person who cannot go without hearing music the entire day. Without music my life just seems incomplete. The day always seem brighter and problems lighter if I hear my favourite music. But, I usually have to wait to get home in order to listen to my music because all my music files are in my laptop. It’s just unfortunate that I don’t have a portable mp3 player right now. But, I’m dying to have one soon. With an mp3 player I can listen to all my music anytime, anywhere. What do you think would be the best choice for an mp3 player? Hmm, I read on the net that there is a new version of the iPod Nano, a slimmer and more dynamic version! I’d sure love to have that one.

Anyway, Christmas is just around the corner so, an iPod Nano would be a great gift for myself. For those of you who don’t have any gift ideas yet, you can welcome the idea of giving an iPod to your most favoured loved one. If that particular someone is not very keen on music, you can always go for an iPod Touch. Well, that’s only if you are feeling generous!

Giving this kind of gifts need not be daunting. Of course you have to do your research first before you actually buy any of them. There are helpful sites that provide price comparison for these kinds of items. To make things easy for you just be sure to find a price comparison site that gives reliable service for price comparisons of iPods. Just keep in mind, you can find all of them online.

Look Up

Have you noticed the skies lately? Probably not. You are one of those busy persons who only have time for work. If you haven’t looked up the skies, find time to do so. Maybe this time you’ll see some changes...that it’s different from the last time you looked up…

Fun Shopping with ShopWiki


Try sniffing the air…do you notice something different about it? Well, I do! It’s almost Christmas! Which means, gift giving. It’s barely three weeks before the most awaited day of the year. I’m sure plenty of you are excited. But let me ask you something, have you shopped for the gift you’re going to give your mom, dad, siblings, son, and daughter? Oh and don’t forget the countless nieces and nephews that you have. They are going to be greatly disappointed if you don’t give them anything this Christmas. Finding toys for the little ones is not difficult at all. But, if you’re looking for toys for the big boys, well, that’s another matter entirely.

ShopWiki can help you in this area. This site brings you shopping convenience unlike any other. This site gathers results of all stores that carry the item you are searching for. And if you want to give a unique gift for him this Christmas a suggestion is a car dvd player. It’s unique don’t you think? I bet, of all gifts he would never think it would be that one you’ll give him. Car dvd players would be a very welcome surprise I’m sure. A car dvd player is a good idea because once it’s installed in the car it will keep the occupants entertained. You should know that being cooped up inside the car can become boring after a while so, keep boredom at bay with a car dvd player.

The fun at ShopWiki doesn’t end there. Aside from dvd players, this site can also bring you results for a new iPod or other MP3 players. Just remember, Christmas shopping need not be a hassle. Make it fun with ShopWiki!

Poem at 6:43

Poem at 6:43
Just when the sunshine through the clouds seemed to be peeking
The sky filling with glorious silver lining
Thick, dark clouds suddenly over spread the skies
It won’t be long before rain drops fall like tears in my eyes
It’s been said over and over again
Nothing remains the same that no one can complain
Life is not and never will be a fairy tale
Only in books do Prince Charmings never fail
Fairy tales make happy endings come true
Real life just makes relationships fall through;
In happy endings I have to stop believing
Maybe only then will the heart stop aching
And tears will stop from endlessly falling…

Photoshop-ing!

During the weekend , Og, taught me the basics of Photoshop. I found the whole picture editing thing quite interesting. I can foresee the most of my freetime will go to this new object of interest. Here are some products of our efforts...

This first photo was done by him. I like the combination colors in this one. Pink looks really sweet. I like the whole pic!:)

Now this one was done by him as well, with bits of input from me hehe...
This is just the same photo as above. We only added my name at the bottom...

After the tutorial I was ready to try on my own. Here's the result. I know it's not that good yet but, it's a start!


I hope to do more Photoshop-ing in the coming days. What fun!:)

Good Read: Two Frogs

I've been reading a lot of inspirational stories lately. For what purpose? Well, I just want to be inspired. All of us could use some inspiration once in a while right? What am I saying? Better make that always.

Anyway, here is an inspirational story that I hope you'd get time to read.


Two frogs

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.
