Pink is a pretty color but it isn't when you have it in your eyes. Finally and totally, I am free from Pink Eye now. I am jumping for joy! It's been two weeks. Suffering from it for two weeks is not funny. I just hope I haven't passed it to my dad and sister or I'll be sorry for them. I had Pink Eye before twice and the recent was the third time. I don't believe with what many had said we can only get Pink Eye once. Bacteria is bacteria and it spreads fast to anyone anytime you are exposed to it. So bye bye Pink Eye!

Recession is still felt anywhere in the world. This means anyone still makes effort to cut some digits off any of their bills. Anyone feels like being deprived from unlimitedly using the much needed services nowadays. One of the services we need in our daily life I would say is a cellphone service. It is as important as electricity and water because it is used as means of communication. It bridges you and your loved-ones near and far and is very useful during emergency.

Accomplishments Despite Pink Eyes

My eyes have gotten worse but still, I was able to finish the works that needed my attention promptly. I am quite surprise myself. It's funny though that when I have complications, works come rushing. Since work is what I am here for, I definitely won't say no when it knocks as long as I can do and as much as I can handle. It's almost a week of my suffering from Pink Eye but this whole week, I surprisingly was able to do my job.

I am happy with my accomplishments this week. I was able to finish writing the much needed articles. Then just three days ago, I finished the layout my blogger friend Geraldine asked for. I even installed the layout to her blog right away. Then yesterday I started working on another blogger layout for Sheng. Hopefully, I will be able to finish it by Sunday. I will soon share the screen shots of the layouts to my Scrap Blog.

While working on Sheng's layout yesterday, I at the same time was working on a video, more like a slideshow of random photos of me and friends taken at our night-out party with the accompaniment of our current favorite beat Teach Me How To Dougie by Cali Swag. Today, I finished creating a video of Cheep's pictures with the accompaniment of her boyfriend's favorite song, Kunin Mo Na Ang Lahat sa Akin. The video was requested by my little sister's boyfriend. Sweet! So I created it despite me having sore eyes. I will share the videos later in my other blog - Fun and Entertainment.

Get a Maid To Please House Cleaning Service

There are times when a woman of the house can’t handle the household chores. If not because it’s an exhausting task, it is a tedious task where they’ll go weary doing the same work over and over again. At some point they are so enthusiastic in doing chores, running errands but sooner or later, just by looking at all the mess either exhausts or bores them. Being a housewife for three years, I do understand the whines of other housewives especially those who are working in and outside their home. They need to be pleased when they don't feel like doing the daily tasks. Lending them some hands to help out with their daily tasks is a great idea so they can relax at least for a day. Why not please them for once by getting a maid to please service? House cleaning service Reston VA offers maid to please service, a house cleaning service that helps the wives out there with all the chores in the house. You might need the service now so come check it out!

I Have Sore Eyes

What a bad luck! Previously, I talked about my excitement to pick my EON card in Zamboanga City branch of Union Bank but my excitement shattered by sore eyes. The planned date to go to Zamboanga is today but now that I am having sore eyes, staying home is the best option. Traveling with sore eyes would just worsen the infection and I don't want it to happen.


The sore eyes/red eyes started on the 16th, Sunday after I got infected by my younger sister Cheem. I woke up with a heavy and sore eyelids and when I looked at the mirror, there I saw both eyes were red. The right eye though is badly infected. I believed it causes the little swollen lymph nodes that appeared at the side of the opening of my ear. I've been applying red eye drops called Eye Mo on both eyes since Sunday hoping to lessen the infection. So far it had helped a bit. I hope it will be totally healed by the 20th so I can push through my trip to Zamboanga City and so that I would not pass the infection to my friends who's accompanying me there. Of course, I badly want to pick my EON card already. I've been anticipating to own it since 2009.

Party Until Morning With Batch Mates


posted by Rechie L on , ,

1 comment

I've been out and about these past weeks just partying every night until morning with friends. It isn't bad to enjoy life and kick depression away, right? It's nice to party without spending too much dime plus being with the good looking party people - boys and girls in the city. You can't blame me. You'll just have to shower a couple of hundred pesos and then you're good to enjoy the night drinking Tanduay Ice and Boracay shaker, dancing and getting silly with rock music and mingling with new friends.

I would like to share the night outs I went to with my ever-missed batch mates last month. It's quite been a long time since I last hanged out with them so I was so thankful they visited me recently.


That's Pabz in black behind me. He was my classmate in college and is my night out partner. Wonder why the night-out partner is a guy? I'm safe with him for he'll never ever fall for me. He's in a same sex relationship. (Reason why I'm explaining is because in case my husband checks and reads this blog post just so he'll know I am not doing anything bad while he's gone). I am just having a clean fun!

At Fat Cat (FC)

This was the latest night-night I went to with batch mates. Above are few of my favorite pictures taken that night, Oct.25 in Fat Cat. Fat Cat is a disco bar that opens only on Fridays and Saturdays,the busiest bar during weekends. We started partying out around 9 in the evening and finished around 3:00 a.m. It was my first night-out with them in a club in Dipolog City and I really had a blast. I am looking forward for the next time.

At Fuse Box (FB) Private Room

At Balai Resto Bar (BRB)

At Sights and Sounds (SNS) Videoke Room

These photos above were taken on Oct. 15, 2011. That night was a plain girls night-out but we were accompanied by my friend's  (in black) boyfriend. We went bar hopping; from Fuse Box - my favorite disco bar to hang out that opens from Monday to Saturday, Balai Resto Bar - hut style bar opens daily to Sights and Sounds - we paid Php250.00 for an hour use of their Videoke Room. I let my friends tried SnS's style of bl0wj0b drink. I had a blast big time that night with these cool girl friends.

Zero Page Rank on All Blogger Blogs


posted by Rechie L on

2 comments

I am confused now with all my blogs' page ranks. If you look at all my blog page ranks hosted in blogger, each says its PR was not affected by the recent PR update by Google but when I visited inpostlinks dot com earlier to check whether I have open opportunities or not, all my blogs there were ranked zero. Well, this is not my first experience with mistaken ranks on blogs or ungraded blogs in inpostlinks. It happened to me twice already last year leaving me not making money during the entire time. I wonder if this happened to other bloggers too. I wonder on how long my blogs stay ungraded in inpostlinks.

Join Us for Monday Mayhem


1. Tell us how to make the perfect bowl of popcorn.

First, you have to have some corn to pop. I prefer microwave popping corn for it's very easy to prepare. So now you have a package of microwave popping corn, the next thing you'll do is to perfectly follow the instructions seen at the back of package.

2. The light just turned yellow and you're 10 feet away. How do you proceed?

It's not bad to run the light sometimes when that close. 

3. How do you deal with poor food quality at a restaurant?

I just eat it, pay, leave a bill tip and leave. There is no poor quality food when I am hungry. It sure is better than my cooking anyway. 

4. Tell us how you deal with an odd co-worker.

Luckily, I don't have one for I am the one. Lol!  

5. How do you dump someone (friend or more than friend)?

I start by avoiding the person and if he's smart enough, he should get the meaning.

EON Visa Debit Card Online Application, Fast and Easy


posted by Rechie L on , ,

I applied for an EON Visa Debit Card last night through online application. Wow! I didn’t think it was that fast and easy. I’ve been trying to get an EON card since the 2009 for a main reason - to use for Paypal verification. I tried applying online but unfortunately online application was then unavailable. So I tried applying to one of the closest Union Bank branch (I chose Tagbilaran branch) in person of the same year but again I was unfortunate. They didn’t take my school ID. They were looking for a TIN Card along with my Postal ID. Also, I heard Union Bank discontinued the issuance of EON Visa Debit Card at that time for some reason.


When I learned that online application for EON card is available, I took the opportunity without second thought. Good thing I passed by a blog of a friend the other day and read her post about her successful online application for EON Card. It’s then I knew that online application for EON card is back. It was just like a snap of fingers. Few minutes after, I received SMS confirmation that my application is successful together with the reference number that I need in order to pick up my card. I am excited! Now I am waiting for a confirmation that my card is ready for pick up. This time, I chose Zamboanga, Jaldon branch because aside from being the closest, I’ve never been there.

If you want to have EON Visa Debit Card you can now apply online. Click here to visit the EON online application page.
