Hassle Week, Stressful week

It's June already and i haven't buy a new pair of school uniform yet. If last week was a lucky one for me then this week, i think, maybe, it is not. Firstly, my 3 employers, again!, did not pay me in my articles. that was very disappointing. it really makes me feel angry. i should have 50 dollars for this week to buy a new uniform and for my allowance by next week. Also, the water bill and the smart bro bill is already due. Therefore, i really need a hundred box or more. Well, i don't want to murmur more. I will just list the things that i need to accomplish and get by this week since im running out of time because June 8 will be that start of our class.
1. I need to follow-up the payments from my 3 employers every now and then.
2. I need to have 5000 pesos by this week to complete all necessary bills and due payments.
3. I need to go to school to follow-up for my requirements (TOR) and enroll myself in NCM 104 subject.
4. I need to go to the tailoring shop for my new uniform.
5. I need to go to a salon.
6. I need to find more projects online to compensate my school allowance and bills.
7. I need to follow-up my student which i rendered a tutorial service last school year( if his parents is still interested).
Actually, there are a lot of things i need to do by this week. i can't write them one by one since my mind is a bit disturbed at the moment. I hope and I pray that i can complete my goals in due time.

Lucky Am I? Yes I am!

I had a lot of blessings this week. Though, i did not able to update my blog due to my busy schedule but a lot of good newssssss came on my way.
First, i was amazed when i found out that my blog increased its page rank. From page rank 1 to 2 now. That's a big deal for me . (See the PR2 icon at the right side of my blog). All i can say to all who visit my blog, thank you so much especially "Equal Life" who told me to check my rank. Well, i really love it. =D
Second, i won 3 projects from the site i bid. That's why, as i said, i wasn't able to update this. I have to finish 70 articles within this week for my 3 employers.
Third, i was able to finish my re-instatement papers for returnee in Ateneo which means, i will able to enroll by next week and continue my study there. I will be enrolling only 1 subject as a sort of review, as what the school administrator's advised me to. But you know what, i will be paying 15, 121 pesos for just one subject ( what a big money!). I did not expect that the cost of each subject unit is already 738 pesos unlike before it was just 517 pesos. But i will have no regret since Ateneo is a prestigious school.
Fourth, i was able to buy my school shoes last Tuesday. Guess what? My shoe size is 33 (children's size) LOL. I was not able to find a pair of lady's shoes that will fit me. Actually, i have a small feet, maybe a size of a 9-11 years old kid. hehe

Filipino Street Foods : Top 10

I really love filipino street foods. Listed below are the top 10 that every filipino knows and loves to eat when it comes to street foods here in the philippines.

1. Kamote-cue is sweet potato that's coated with brown sugar and deep-fried in oil; several large pieces are served on a thin bamboo skewer.

2. Banana-cue is saba (a fat cooking variety of banana) that's coated with brown sugar and deep-fried in oil; one large one or two small bananas are served on a skewer.

3. Kwek-Kwek are hard-boiled quail eggs coated with batter and then deep-fried. Tokneneng is the term when chicken eggs are used. Kwek kwek is almost the same street food compared to Tokneneng but quail eggs are used instead of chicken eggs.

4. Fish balls are round, airy fish-flavored dough deep-fried in oil and then skewered on a stick; various dipping sauces are provided. Squid balls and chicken balls are recent variations.

5. Adidas are grilled chicken feet on skewers; named after the three stripes in the German shoe company's logo. When someone hands you Adidas as a food, don’t be surprise to see sticks of chicken feet.

6. Walkmen are pork ears that so tender that Filipinos made it a street food to hit the local eating scene, in streets. It is dubbed as Walkman as it means ears of the pig. These tender ears are cleaned, seasoned then grilled in bamboo sticks.

7. Turon is banana wrapped like a spring roll and deep fried; jackfruit is sometimes included in the filling. his somewhat resembles banana spring rolls. These are also known as banana fritters.

8. Betamax is chicken or pig's blood that's dried and roasted; served cut into small cubes. Betamax is the term for dried chicken blood served and cut into small cubes resembling the aged Betamax tape. Betamax is served in barbeque sticks which are grilled until cooked.

9. Taho is a drink made from soft bean curd sweetened with caramel syrup.. You can spot a taho vendor from afar carrying two large metal cans suspended on a stick over his shoulder.

10. Iskrambol is a sweet, slushy milk-based drink that's a favorite of Filpino children. There's always an iskrambol vendor near elementary schools.

You, which one is your favorite? Don't worry stocks are unlimited in the philippines' streets. hehe

Emo

I was scanning my photos in my computer folder awhile ago and i saw my emo pics there. It was shot by my bf through ym. LOL. But i wondered when do the term started? What was its origin?

Emo is a style of rock music usually characterized by a melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington D.C. where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Embrace and Rites of Spring. As the style was echoed by contemporary American punk bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed, blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s by groups such as Jawbreak and Sunny Day Real Estate. By the mid 1990s numerous emo acts emerged from the Midwestern and Central Indie States and several independent record labels began to specialize in the style. Emo broke into mainstream culture in the early 2000s with the platinum-selling success of JImmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional and the emergence of the more aggressive subgenre "screamo". In recent years the term "emo" has been applied by critics and journalists to a variety of artists, including multiplatinum acts such as Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance and disparate groups such as Coheed and Cambria and Panic at the Disco. In addition to music, "emo" is often used more generally to signify a particular relationship between fans and artists, and to describe related aspects of fashion, culture, and behavior. -wikipedia
Well, with that, i already knew when and how it started. =D

Ice Age3: The Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Yesterday, we celebrated mother's day and presented special gifts to them. My family and I went out for lunch and dinner in the mall. As we passed through the cinema, i saw a poster of "Ice Age 3: The Dawn of the Dinosaurs" which will be in movie theaters this coming July. I really loved this 3D animated movie.
One of the known character here is Manfred, the mammoth. Manfred has a strong belief that every animal must only have a relationship with one other animal for providing they live together. "If you find a mate in life, you should be loyal", Manfred said in the movie. (I hope guys do the same, LOL!) Anyways, with his loyal attitude toward his partner, i wondered and asked, do all mammoths were really like Manfred?
Next is Sid, the Sloth. Sid is first exposed as fast asleep while all other animals move around a warmer climate. He was left behind by his of family because they considered him as an annoyance. However, when Sid met the other characters, the friendship was built due to his jolly and understanding attitude. Sid is the talkative type, yet suffers from lateral lisp that makes his "S's" and "C's" spitty!
Diego, the Smilodon. Diego is among the saber-toothed, brave, and frightened animal in the continent. However, Diego reasumes his role in the third film (as what i have read in the movie preview and he thinks he's been cared more like a kitty and would like to be respected like any smilodon would be.
Scrat, my favorite fictional saber-toothed squirrel. He never interrelates with the characters except where he hits Sid for saving his life. Acorns is his favorite food and the cause of the continental drift. I just like his face. That's all. He make me smile haha..
The Ice Age sequels, for me, is a simple and great movie in a way that it reminds people about the ancient/prehistoric animals and how they lived their lives in the past. That's the reason why ICE AGE is one of my favorite movies and I just can't wait for it to be in the movie theaters soon. =D
P.S. Thanks to the mall where i saw the poster!!!! hehe

3-Day VBS

Teaching children is not as easy as 123. You must exert time and effort. From studying your lessons for them and teaching them. Last week, we had our 3-day VBS. Actually, VBS is held every summer. I was one of the teachers. The VBS theme was "Wild wild West". This talks about the way Jesus lives long before, the stories of the great men in the Bible, and the good values that these characters shared based to their life's experiences and most of all the "SALVATION."
Teacher Nanette and I was assigned to those children ages from 9-12 years old. We called them the JUNIORS' CLASS. We had 27 students in our class and almost 300 children all in all. My hope is that these children will keep the lessons we shared to them in their hearts and apply it throughout their lives.
