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.

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!

Urduja - FCES Film Showing at SM

It was a very fun and exciting day for my kids today. We headed out this morning to SM Rosario to watch FCES film showing, Urduja. Shanley and Aaron really enjoyed watching it. The entire cinema was full of excited children and their parents, laughing at the jokes and visual gags. I was so happy that the kids could understand what was going on since it was in tagalog and that they enjoyed the comic songs and capers of Kukut and Tarsir. It's a really nice and funny movie. In fact, Shanley told me that she wants to watch it again. :-)

Manny Pacquiao and Will Ferrel sing "Imagine" on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Aside from the upcoming Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Fight, Manny Pacquiao appeared recently at Jimmy Kimmel Live and sang "Imagine" with Hollywood comedy Superstar Will Ferrel. Fans applauded Ferrel and Pacman afterwards and based on the video, we can say that Manny Pacquiao has already plenty of supporters even from Americans. 

It's now Manny's 3rd guesting on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In his first appearance last November 2009, he sang Dan Hill's "Sometimes When We Tats (Touch)". Then in March 2010, Pacman guested again and sang George Benson's "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You". 

Will he be a threat to Filipina singing sensation Charice Pempengco? You be the judge. lol.

Quotes about Backstabbers

Have you ever encountered somebody who is very nice to you and then, when she turns around, she says many bad things ever about you? You can easily find one just by observing her actions. She may be super nice to you but deep inside, you don't know that she hates you. If anyone out there who is dealing with a backstabber, here are some quotes for you:

Do not eat the bread of a man who is stingy; do not desire his delicacies,for he is like one who is inwardly calculating. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you. You will vomit up the morsels that you have eaten, and waste your pleasant words.
    Proverbs 23:6-8

~Dealing with backstabbers, there's one thing I've learned. The bitches are only powerful when your back is turned~ 

~ In all likelihood, Backstabbers are quite pleasant and supportive on the surface. But that's a mask. ~
    Les Parrot                                                                                                                                      

~ They put on a front that appears accommodating, loyal, and yes, even sacrificial. Then, without warning, they raise their knife, and by the time you see the glint of the blade, it's almost always too late. ~
     Les Parrot

~By sending a brief memo to a colleague or a superior, you have a paper trail that Backstabber's can't erase.~
    Les Parrot

~ Remember that Backstabbers are sneaky,slick,seductive, and sabotaging. ~
    Les Parrot

~ Backstabbers specialize in saying the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person. ~
    Les Parrot

~ You know that you have been stabbed when you feel the deep pain of betrayal. ~
    Les Parrot

~ Backstabbing is nothing new. In biblical times,King David experienced the pain of betrayal. ~
