Mellow Yellow Monday: Rubber Duckies


This was taken in StarCity when my husband's nephew celebrated his 8th birthday. This a fishing game, where some of the rubber duckies have special prizes on them. Too bad they didn't win any, but it sure was fun!

Where in the World?

I am very bad at getting and giving directions. I guess this is a result of being a passenger all of my life. I do not pay attention to street signs and road directions because I leave all of that to my husband. I trust him to get me home safely and in one good piece. So whenever people asks me where in the world is blank, I either point them to the phone directory or Google. It works most of the time, but it is a nightmare when you cant get your hands on both. One time, my aunt asked me for an address of a shop in Dallas, TX and of course, I wasn't much help. Turns out she was looking for Dallas pawnshops where she can get free appraisals for a ring her friend was selling her. She ended up in one of Houston pawn shops which gave here a good service.

But after this episode, I realized that it is a must for me to learn to give and get directions. I told my husband that I will learn this as soon as he teaches me how to dive again. I think that is a big incentive for me to learn because it would be useless for me to know how to dive and yet remain clueless as to where in the world I need to go!

Cebu Pacific 50% Off Seat Sale!

Time to get those credit cards again and start a-swiping! Cebu Pacific is offering a 50% system wide seat sale for having received 50.60% of the domestic market share. Meaning, more than half of domestic passengers flew Cebu Pacific!

This is nowhere near their amazing Piso Fare, but I guess for those who need to travel within the period above then this is already an amazing deal. So book now because this is from May 29-31 only.

If only I have no Boracay family trip this July (courtesy of their Piso fare) then I will surely be amongst those happily clicking on the dates to visit Palawan!

Mellow Yellow Monday: Fiesta!


This is what a fiesta in Batangas looks like! There were more than 10 dishes and 6 desserts in all and we visited 3 more houses with as much food as the first one! And each of us had take-outs!

Thank you very much to Karen and her family for their hospitality!

Friday Quotes: Success

"The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do"

Search Engine Optimization

No, I have not turned technical, just practical. I think search engine optimization is a reality in monetizing one's blog and it would be doing your blog an injustice if you will not give it a try. But what exactly is search engine optimization? As defined on Wikipedia, search engine optimization or SEO, " is the process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site or a web page (such as a blog) from search engines via "natural" or un-paid search results as opposed to other forms of search engine marketing which may deal with paid inclusion. The theory is that the earlier (or higher) a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine." Of course the more visits you get, the more earnings you will receive. And that translates to more earnings on paid and sponsored posts or adsense.

This blog is a source of so much fun and enjoyment for me. I have now an outlet to share my ideas and my life. I have met new friends here and have learned so much from them. So I wont be going anywhere anytime soon and expect more from this blog. Or until I learn to write more good quality content and search engine optimization.

Mellow Yellow Monday


We were at a beach in Nasugbu, Batangas last Labor day weekend and here are some Mellow Yellow shots for you!

And this one caught my attention. These old ladies cant keep themselves from the water and it was so hot! I so love their idea of bringing their umbrellas to the water. Ha ha! Enjoy!

They stayed at the water long enough to enjoy it despite the heat! While I didn't even took a dip, the water looks inviting from where I was, just looking at the umbrella-ed ladies!
