Christmas Greetings!

Christmas gift suggestions:  To your enemy, forgiveness.  To an opponent, tolerance.  To a friend, your heart.  To a customer, service.  To all, charity.  To every child, a good example.  To yourself, respect.  ~Oren Arnold

May the warmth and joy of Christmas fill our heart with happiness!
Have a Merry Christmas Everyone!

Time For a Holiday Shopping Rush

Two weeks from now and it will be Christmas. Time flies so fast. My kids now are really excited. Oh, too bad, I haven't started shopping for their Christmas presents and gifts for their exchange gift on their Christmas party next week. But I'm planning to do it tomorrow. And also, I still need to buy presents for my husband's god children. I know malls and tiangges now are already crowded because of the holiday shopping rush but I'm still hoping I can finish all scheduled task tomorrow. Next year, I will try to beat Christmas rush so I won't be stressed, give better gifts and I can save myself from a lot of aggravation.

My Toon for Facebook's Campaign Against Child Violence

Change your Facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until Monday (Dec.6) there should be no human face on Facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is for VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN. 
I just came across this message last night on Facebook. It is actually the current trend on the net and I've noticed that a lot of profile picture changes. People were really fast to follow this new craze. So I thought of joining too for it's good cause and also, it's really fun! It makes me wanna go back to the good 'ol days. To the days when there are no worries and problems for me..just enjoying being a kid and free-spirited, feeling free to laugh, play, joke, being goofy and just have tons of fun! 

So, how about you? Which is your favorite cartoon character when you were a kid?

Almost everyone is excited - joyful music, colorful displays are all around us. And if it's Christmas, the tradition of gift giving has always been a big part.

Anyway, I am greeting each and everyone of you a blessed, safe, and peaceful Christmas season! ^_^

Simple Ways to Simplify Your Life

Life is never simple. And this statement seems to grow more true as each passing year graces us with more possessions, more relationships, and more responsibilities—without actually giving us more time to take care of them. Here are some simple ways to detangle hassles, save time, and get what needs doing done. I hope that you’ll find at least a little something that speaks to you, helps you save some time, space, and energy — and perhaps even increases your serenity and happiness!
  • Spot a fake smile and a fake friend fast, then ditch them When a person gives an honest smile, the eyes crinkle.
  • Don't ask for opinions if you don't want them "If you don't really care, all you're having is a meaningless conversation." You may end up acting on others’ opinions or explaining why you didn’t take their advice.
  • Pare down on personal commitments Don't waste time on "Friends" who don't keep secrets and backstab you.
  • After you say no, say no more. “The more you explain, the more room you give others to poke holes in your excuses or suggest alternatives,”
  • Choose a hair color close to your natural shade. “The more you move away from your natural color, the more the maintenance,”
  • Just one tool can brighten your whole face. Use as lipcolor, or dot smudges on eyelids and cheeks and blend.
  • Bulk up. Buy in quantity what you’ll never stop using: toilet paper, soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, stockings, detergent, tape and lightbulbs.
  • A simple doormat can reduce the amount of dirt tracked into your home by enough to shave at least 100 hours off cleaning time per year.
  • Start the new year right. Mark every special occasion on your calendar. For each date that requires a gift, use a red pen to remind.
  • Don’t finish a boring book, movie, or project just because you started it. Don't try to stick it out to find the one part that will justify all the rest of the time we spent on it.” But you have to know when to quit throwing good time after bad.
  • Read news online, instead of on paper. You’ll save plenty of time, and plenty of trees, by reading only the articles that interest you.
  • Have a place for everything. It makes it much easier to find things, and put them away.
  • Don’t be a fashion victim. Chasing trends is a waste of time and money.
  • Avoid unhealthy habits, like smoking, drugs, or drinking in excess. You’ll look better now, and avoid a boatload of health problems down the road.
  • Learn to say no. It can be difficult, but will ensure you have enough time and energy for the stuff that really matters.
The Best Time To…
  • …schedule a doctor’s appointment is first thing in the morning, before other appointments run overtime and leave you rotting in the waiting room
  • …visit the hairstylist is Wednesday, when customer traffic is traditionally at its lightest for the week.
  • …reach important people on the phone is usually before 9 A.M. or after 5:30 P.M. 
  • …go grocery shopping is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The beginning or end of the week is always busy.

Pacquiao Beats Margarito for 8th Title in 8th Weight Class

Today the whole Filipino nation is celebrating the victory of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao over "Tijuana Tornado", Antonio Margarito. PacMan succeeded to claim the vacant WBC Super Welterweight title with a 150-pound catchweight. The tale of the tape may have shown that Margarito's reach and height is at his advantage but Manny's dedication, superior speed and skill still prevailed. Pacquiao dominates the "Tijuana Tornado" almost all 12 rounds during their bout. He landed a total of 474 punches against Margarito’s 229. But even though Pacquiao dominated the fight, he had a hard time putting Margarito down.

“I did my best,” Pacquiao said. “He’s strong. He’s a very tough fighter. I can’t believe [he took those punches].” – Yahoo! Sports
Filipino pride made us proud again. Congratulations Manny Paquiao! Indeed, "YOU" are the only "Pound for Pound King" Do you agree, Mayweather? If not, step up if you still have your balls to fight. lol.

Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito

I am not a boxing fanatic but I don't know what makes me feel excited for tomorrows fight of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito. Maybe the feeling of being a proud Filipino everytime he wins. Because he brings pride to our country. Tomorrow, November 14, the streets will be empty because everybody will have their television open to watch Manny Pacquiao defend again his title from Antonio Margarito. As fellow Filipino, we should support Manny. After all, it’s our country he’s representing. Our single prayer? Victory for Manny and for the Filipino people around the world!
