Back in Blogging . . . Away from Home

Staring at my long-forgotten blog, I try hard to fathom how I managed not to write a single post for such a long time. After eight months, I can no longer bear with being away from the blogosphere—keeping my thoughts to myself—and managing casual revelation sometimes. But this time, I’m writing in the other side of the globe away from the familiar place where I grew up and the people whom I cherished the most.

Living in an entirely different environment, I have to make a decision: will I blog about my homeland here or create a new blog about the place I’m trying so hard to adapt with—much effort is consumed by the chilly weather. (I never thought that acclimatization as a long process.)

I’ve got so much to write but first I really have to impose and plan my schedule so as to have time to immerse myself whenever I can in blogging and catching up with my favorite blogs; one of which is Raven’s blog.

Thanks to her, I found out that Textbroker is accepting writers aside from those residing in US. As much as I want to grab such opportunity, it isn’t possible as of now with the exception of blogging, of course. Then I thought about my sister. I earnestly urged her to give it a try. I still yet have to hear from her whether she try or think of alibis not to.

Another discovery that I’m thrilled to share: Pesos and Sense, a show every Filipino wanting to invest in stock or lacking entirely of knowledge should definitely watch. I’m done watching all the episodes found in YouTube that now I’m eager to know more.

Now, I’m done with the warm up post. I definitely have to work hard so as to keep up with the blogosphere.

Summer-Shopping Galore in 3-Day Sale

Before the official start of Holy Week, Filipinos can spend summer shopping on a 3-day sale from April 15-17 on clothes, cellphones and more.

SM San Lazaro

First stop in the 3-day event is at SM San Lazaro, a mall that is very much accessible because of the LRT and jeepneys. I was there on the first day by noon and some items were selling like hot cakes. There were many buy-one-take-one promos or big discount in different items like shades and shoes. As for me, I recommend you to visit Superbench on which I bought my jeans--my first skinny-like jeans.

First Blogsvertise Payment Proof

At last, I can say that I’ve successfully monetized my blog—a bit—as I received my first payment from Blogsvertise. I’m so happy! By far, it is the highest earning from a single blog post.

But what made me more ecstatic is that the payment is just in time for the SM San Lazaro 3-day sale (April15-17, 2011). I can splurge it on jeans. It’s been a long time since I scour heap of bargains searching for the right fit.

May there will be more opportunities from Blogsvertise!

Gmail: Free Call to US and Canada

If you have Gmail, pay attention to my post; and if you don’t have one, I urge you—for your benefits—to create now. Gmail is like your Yahoo mail. On this two online mailboxes you can chat with your friends while checking your inbox. But Gmail sets itself apart—too far. You can now make free call to US and Canada, be it mobile or landline; imagine hours of talking without the hefty price—not a single cent! It’s still in beta, so why not give your friends, family a call from your PC.

2 Digital Camera Must-Haves: Eneloop Rechargeable Battery and Sanyo Battery Charger

When I bought an affordable digital camera in a mall in the Philippines, I thought I save much. The excitement and the lack of knowledge made me spent more later on. Peripherals were not included with the purchase: memory card and rechargeable battery and its charger. After several trials, I found and can vouch my camera must-haves so you can avoid unwise spending. Unlike the SD card that lasted only few months and cannot be read anymore by my digicam, I’m confident with my 4GB Transcend SD memory card; it is a bit pricey yet comes with high quality.

LG LED TV in the Philippines

Who wouldn’t want one? Every time I go to the mall and pass by an appliance store, I always look for LED TV; and for such high-end, latest craze device, its price here in the Philippines is always startling for a frugal person like me. Later I get used with the costly price tag that I’m more interested to look for my ideal size of the screen—32 inches is just right—lesser makes it look like our Philip LED computer monitor and greater isn’t good either. My window shopping has brought me to the apple of my techie eye— LG 32-Inch LED LCD VA Panel HDTV.

Review Stream New Rate in 2011

I occasionally visit the website of Review Stream to check if the regular rate (payment) for a review increases. It did change, from $2.50 to $1.50; a disappointing one dollar decrease is a great deal for those who love writing reviews.
