Isn't that clear?

I have been wearing eyeglasses since I was in grade school. Ever since then, I’ve had bought 4 pairs of eyeglasses in total and I have also tried contact lenses. But contact lenses are not for everyone, just like me because my eye dries up quickly every time I’m wearing contacts-- loosing its natural lubricant. And so, that only leaves me to be loyal to my good ol’ pair of eyeglasses.

Sometimes, it’s hard to find nice pair of eyeglasses that will both fit your eye’s needs and your pocket’s budget. However, I saw from one website this nice deal-- Zenni Optical: Sell Rx Glasses $8 with case! If you convert it to our local currency with the ongoing exchange rate, I bet you will not buy just one pair especially with the stylish designs that they have.

It's Been Awhile

... since my last post. Actually, I'd been "busy" for the past few days-- reason as to why I've neglected my blog lately. Now I'm back and will bloghop later. So happy to get tagged as well. ;-)

Friday, January 25, 2008 - working for the jobless

If you're in search of homebased or after office-hours jobs... try signing-up with The On Demand Global Workforce - . I'm already a member of this wonderful site and so far, I got interviewed already. I just wanted after office jobs for additional income and to maximize my internet connection as well.

You can be productive even if you're just at home.

If You Changed Your Mind

I know I'll be getting "reactions" about this song (for those who know what I've been through). For the record, I just kinda' like the song because I'm a music lover and believe me honey! Got it while sound-trippin'... believe me it's nice!

If You Changed Your Mind by Trina

I just can't get it over losing you
It's hard to accept that you found someone new
Life used to be so wonderful
Wish I was with you

Why did I give my heart to you
It really hurts coz I love you still
I just cant help but wish that things will change

(If u change your mind) I'll still be here waiting for you baby I'm still in love with you
(If u change your mind) I was always hoping for you honey hope you'll come back to me
(If u change your mind) if you will have me unconditionally only baby I'm yours alone
If you change your mind

Does she love you the way I do
Does she build her world around you too
I cant help but be desperate
I need you back

(If u change your mind) I'll still be here waiting for you baby I'm still in love with you
(If u change your mind) I was always hoping for you honey hope you'll come back to me
(If u change your mind) if you will have me unconditionally only baby I'm yours alone
If you change your mind

(If u change your mind) I'll still be here waiting for you baby im still in love with you
(If u change your mind) I was always hoping for you honey hope you'll come back to me
(If u change your mind) if you will have me unconditionally only baby I'm yours alone
if you change your mind

Sleep Deprivation

I'm suffering from this for several days already. Well, blame it with my home setup. My daughter's so playful that whenever she saw my eyes opened, she thought I was fully-awake already and would go at my side to kiss me then sit on my tummy (ouch!). Very sweet! But then once I'm awake, I can't go back to sleep again. And most of the time, I'll only sleep for 3-4 hours. Now there are noticeable tiny red veins in the white part of my eyes.

Oh, I miss my bed most of the time especially when I'm working. Lols.

Buying Gold Coins

If I have extra money to spare, I won't buy anything like shoes or clothes. Instead, I will invest it (which is wiser, of course!)-- either on properties or buy gold coins. Buying gold coins is as good as placing money in time deposit. Aside from that, it is not hard to dispose it whenever you wanted to. A little bit of trivia, some people do not know that gold is used as the international monetary standard. That's why it's market value never depreciates. Nowadays, we have to learn to manage our finances so that we will be always ready for unexpected expenses. Better think of saving up now so that you can retire early.

I wonder...

- how some people can be happy without thinking of what's next to come

- how some people can be happy after leaving their responsibilities

- how some people can be happy knowing they've cause pain to other people

- how some people can forget easily and move on

- how some people can cheat and get away with it

- how some people can think only of themselves and forget about their family

- how soon I can forget about this f*cking people

Saving for my contributions

The moment I signed-up with my homebased job, I know that I'm no longer entitled with company-paid statutory benefits. Just like SSS, Pag-ibig and Philhealth. But I know I can always apply as a voluntary contributor. It is very important that we maintain these benefits because in the future when we get old and reach our retirement age, it's very helpful that we have money to expect every month from the retirement pay which we are entitled as a retired member. I've posted links for more info regarding voluntary contributions.

Questions of the Week

Grabbed from Litzie... check her blog as well-- it's nice one!

1. A goal you would like to achieve this year? Learn to be patient. Payoff my dues. Start getting a housing loan.

2. A smell that reminds you of your childhood? Bacon.

3. Favorite cereal? Kellogs, the usual ones.

4. Who was the last person you yelled at? The little girl :'(

5. What do you see outside your window? My neighbor's window.

6. What country would most like to visit? France, New Zealand, Switzerland.

7. What do you prefer… books or movies? Movies

8. Do you have a tatoo? how many? None and no plans of having one.

9. What’s the worst advice you were ever given? Not to continue my pregnancy (duh, maybe they don't have conscience)

10. Have you ever been searched at the airport? Nope.

Health is Wealth

Finding lower hospitalization insurance is very difficult especially if you’re the only one providing for all your family member’s basic needs. But basic needs should also include saving up for your health. When we talked about basic needs, sometimes we only think about tangible things like food, shelter and clothing. I say we should include saving up for our health needs. How can you work and be productive if you’re unhealthy? Don’t wait for unexpected things to happen, such as getting ill before we realize the value of having healthcare insurance.

If purchase major medical family plans, you will be saving yourself with future major headache. Always expect the unexpected and save yourself from the trouble of spending your cash just for the hospital fees. You can save money on healthcare insurance because it is almost five times the amount you’re paying for the premium. Besides that, you need not worry of where to get cash in times of life crisis.

The Value of Security

Being a parent is a big responsibility. You must not only provide for your child’s basic needs, but you must also think of their future and be prepared for emergencies. Knock on wood—but then again, a parent must be always practical, in terms of saving and spending. And not all expenditure is a liability. Think of investing in Money Back Life Insurance. You might not see its benefits right away, but then you will get to appreciate it by the time your insurance policy matures.

At first, you might be turned-off with high insurance premiums. But there’s always an option. You can look for companies offering insurance quoting services. You can choose the amount which would best fit your budget.

So you see, saving on insurance premiums is much wiser than just putting your money in a bank. Because with insurance-- the amount of time you started with your premium is valued together with its monetary worth. The earlier you invest your money, the higher cash earnings you can get in return.

Born to Love You

A very heart-warming song... I almost forgot this.

Born To Love You by George Duke

You walk into my life
And change the balance of my days
With your eyes you say
I am yours and you are mine

But still, something's very wrong
No I can't just go along
Though you want to stay
I must find a reason to delay

We're not the same
You playing game, I know
But If I keep my feeling strong
I'll find the song you sing
Though I can tell we're worlds apart
And in my heart it's clear
That love has found a cloudy day
I'm here to say that I
was born to love you (more)

Such a lovely face
With a warm and tender smile
Though I want you so
Something deep inside keep saying

Don't trust your heart this time
Could my mind be playing games
Am I so betrayed that my heart and mind
Can never be the same

We're not the same
You playing game, I know
But If I keep my feeling strong
I'll find the song you sing
Though I can tell we're worlds apart
And in my heart it's clear
That love has found a cloudy day
I'm here to say that I
was born for you

We're not the same
You playing game, I know
But If I keep my feeling strong
I'll find the song you sing
Though I can tell we're worlds apart
And in my heart it's clear
That love has found a cloudy day
I'm here to say that I
was born to love you more...

A Brand New Year

... means a brand new start... a brand new life

Focus more on career, let worries worry for you, let tomorrow take care of itself...

Think positive! You're still lucky-- concentrate on the things you have and be contented... that's the key to real happiness.

Bienvenue 2008!
