Facebook Cards from

4/29/2012 03:45:00 PM 1 Comments

Yay! They're here.

I got my Facebook Cards from last April 26, 2012 when I claimed it from the Post Office. It arrived a week earlier from its estimated arrival date of May 4, 2012. I ordered it immediately last March 28, 2012, when I got an email with a free shipping code. My brother was the one who told me about Facebook Cards, when he got his cards last February, shipping fee was still free at that time. Now shipping fee costs, £2.75.  Well, I 'm just a lucky gal who got a chance to still have this for free.. (hehehe)

front covers

Sorry but I can't post the back cover photo of my card because of my phone number and email address. :(

About Facebook Cards, Each pack will contain all your Cover Photos and each card will show your name, company or college, where you live as well as your Facebook URL, phone number and e-mail address. Also on the back of the card is space for you to add your own quotation or sentence about yourself. By default they pull in the first quote they find in your Favourite  Quotations field but you can edit this to say whatever you like. Mine says,  "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. " from the Book of  Psalm 139:14

    4/29/2012 12:23:00 AM 0 Comments

    What Hurts... Image

    **letting go of a person u've just learned to love

    **reminiscing the good times u shared together

    **shielding ur heart to love somebody

    **trying to hide what u really feel

    **trying to hide the tears that involuntarily fall from ur eyes

    **loving a person too much

    **giving up someone u never thought of giving up

    **having the right love at the wrong time

    **taking the risk to fall in love again

    **hiding ur relationship from someone else

    **controlling ur feelings to avoid hurting a friend

    **thinking of him every waking and sleeping moment knowing all the while that she/he never even thinks a single thought of you...

    **letting go, because everytime you see the person, you only fall deeper

    **holding back only to find out when it's too late, you both felt the same way, but were only scared to lose each other so much that you didn't let the feelings out

    **falling inlove with someone you didnt mean to fall inlove with

    **finding the perfect guy...with only one prob....he doesnt love you...the way you want him to...

    **helping the one you love "make ligaw" to your friend

    **seeing the one you love crying for someone else

    **the waiting also hurts like hell

    **having to hear "... I've met someone"

    **agreeing to his wish to 'just be friends'.

    **asking his freedom back bcoz 'he'd be happier with her'

    **asking u to 'forget that everything happened' and be 'normal' friends again.

    **hearing that u're treated as a little sis (ouch!)

    **sharing his future plans for the girl with you.

    **u stopped being friends bcoz his gf asked him to.

    **being denied in front of people.

    **telling u lies where he'd been when actually, he was with a 'new friend' or an 'old flame' (whew!)

    **he told u he'd be leaving u to return to his ex (d one he left 4 u!)

    **breaking someone's heart

    **fighting for that one thing that would make you happy that is, holding on

      to a person who can not guarantee you his commitment unless he fix

      himself...then, you are left hanging for the moment...then he says, time

      will tell...ang labo lang niya...but you still decided to hope in him and trust him

    **PRETENDING you're OK when inside you're dying...

    **PRETENDING to be strong.... and RECOGNIZING your weakness

    **lying in bed each night, thinking of that special person you can never have...

    **being with someone you can't actually love...

    **pretending you don't love a person whom you actually love...

    **being in love...

    **letting go even if you really don't want to...having no right to say you are hurting because it was your decision

    **seeing the person you love hurt because of you...are not being able to help that person...

    **having the courage to say I LOVE YOU to the person you love and finding out afterwards that things will never be the same again when he doesnt treat you with the same closeness as before

    **having to face the fact that someone is capable of completely destroying the wall that you have set for yourself, leaving you weak and vulnerable

    **admitting that you love someone despite his imperfections

    **finding out that the more you try to hate him, the more you end up loving him, perhaps even more than before

    **realizing how stupid your mistakes were that led to your break-up.

    **the thought that this guy, used to really love you and you loved him as well kaso you didn't give enough and he gave up on you na

    **Sharing the one you love with SOMEBODY else....."

    **making a promise....and realizing that when the time has come for that promise to be delivered....the commitment is no longer there...

    **the hardest thing about love - believing it exists.

    After you've been hurt......learning to forgive ...learning to trust and

    love again

    But the hardest thing really is learning to love yourself. We always forget

    to do this. Always.

    30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She's 30.

    4/26/2012 11:10:00 AM 0 Comments

    I saw this post today from Everything In Budget and it caught my attention simply because I am turning 30 this September. I want to share this also to those who are turning 30 this year.. hehehe. Cheers! Hope you enjoy reading this post as I did. :D

    30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She's 30.
    Source: Glamour Magazine | Date Published: 1997

    By 30, you should have..
    • One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you of how far you’ve come.
    • A decent piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in your family.
    • Something perfect to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour.
    • A purse, a suitcase, and an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying.
    • A youth you’re content to move beyond.
    • A past juicy enough that you’re looking forward to retelling it in your old age.
    • The realization that you are actually going to have an old age -- and some money set aside to help fund it.
    • An email address, a voice mailbox, and a bank account -- all of which nobody has access to but you.
    • A résumé that is not even the slightest bit padded.
    • One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry.
    • A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra.
    • Something ridiculously expensive that you bought for yourself, just because you deserve it.
    • The belief that you deserve it.
    • A skin-care regimen, an exercise routine, and a plan for dealing with those few other facets of life that don’t get better after 30.
    • A solid start on a satisfying career, a satisfying relationship, and all those other facets of life that do get better.

    By 30, you should know..
    • How to fall in love without losing yourself.
    • How you feel about having kids.
    • How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.
    • When to try harder and when to walk away.
    • How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next.
    • The names of the secretary of state, your great-grandmothers, and the best tailor in town.
    • How to live alone, even if you don’t like to.
    • Where to go -- be it your best friend’s kitchen table or a yoga mat -- when your soul needs soothing.
    • That you can’t change the length of your legs, the width of your hips, or the nature of your parents.
    • That your childhood may not have been perfect, but it’s over.
    • What you would and wouldn’t do for money or love.
    • That nobody gets away with smoking, drinking, doing drugs, or not flossing for very long.
    • Who you can trust, who you can’t, and why you shouldn’t take it personally.
    • Not to apologize for something that isn’t your fault.
    • Why they say life begins at 30

    Buy Eyeglasses Online: Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

    4/25/2012 10:35:00 PM 3 Comments

    Buy Eyeglasses Online: Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

    A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and more eyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo's slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.

    Most eyeglasses wearers have purchased eyeglasses at traditional eyeglass stores. Nevertheless, due to the limited styles and unaffordable prices, consumers have had to regard eyeglasses as a medical tool used to correct vision instead of a fashion accessory. But now, with the emergence of online eyeglass shopping, we can get fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices. Among the many online eyeglass stores, Firmoo, which combines fashion and economy, is undoubtedly the most outstanding one.

    As we all know, we usually have to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Yet, you can get the same pair of glasses from online eyeglass stores at a fraction of the price. For this reason, buying glasses online is, so to speak, quite an economical way to get eyeglasses. Among the numerous online optical stores, Firmoo is the most economic one. Customers can usually get their beloved glasses at a price that is up to 90% lower than that in brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Furthermore, new customers can even get their first pair for FREE there. Some people may doubt the quality, safety, durability, etc. of eyeglasses purchased online, but there is no need to worry when purchasing from Firmoo. Firstly, all glasses provided by Firmoo are carefully manufactured by skilled workers and are strictly inspected by professional opticians before shipment, thus ensuring the quality and safety of glasses; secondly, Firmoo has developed a try-on tool for customers to try their beloved eyeglasses on so as to see how they look on them; thirdly, Firmoo has a customer service team that has always been committed to offering their valued customers the best service; lastly, all glasses available at Firmoo are provided by their affiliated factory, which is why they can offer eyeglasses at such a low price.
    "We have dozens of affiliated eyeglasses factories which enable us to provide our customers with the most affordable eyeglasses around because there are no middlemen in between. Meanwhile, we have devoted ourselves to providing our valued customers with fashionable and aesthetic eyeglasses," said Patrick Li, Firmoo's CEO.
    Compared with purchasing eyeglasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores, purchasing eyeglasses online is not only more economical but also enables customers to select from more fashion elements. This is due to Firmoo meticulously picking several hundred classic styles from thousands of eyeglass models.
    Firmoo CEO Patrick Li also added, "Our team has selected hundreds of classical and fashionable styles in order to save time for our customers when they are picking eyeglasses."
    So what do online eyeglass stores bring to us? We believe the answer is fashion and frugality.

    I Alone

    4/23/2012 04:08:00 PM 2 Comments
    Since Vertical Horizon and Ed Kowalczyk of Live is having a concert this 28th of April, 2012 at Smart Araneta Coliseum.. I can't help but relive the songs of Live that I've been singing when I was still in 7th grade.. Oops, I just remembered that I still have the cassette tape of Live's Throwing Copper album but I am so lazy
    to get it at the top most part of my closet. Here is one of my favorite songs from the said album..

    Throwing Copper (1994)
    I Alone

    It's Easier Not To Be Wise
    And Measure These Things By Your Brains
    I Sank Into Eden With You
    Alone In The Church By And By

    I'll Read To You Here, Save Your Eyes
    You'll Need Them, Your Boat Is At Sea
    Your Anchor Is Up, You've Been Swept Away
    And The Greatest Of Teachers Won't Hesitate
    To Leave You There, By Yourself,
    Chained To Fate

    I Alone Love You
    I Alone Tempt You
    I Alone Love You
    Fear Is Not The End Of This!

    It's Easier Not To Be Great
    And Measure These Things By Your Eyes
    We Long To Be Here By His Resolve
    Alone In The Church By And By
    To Cradle The Baby In Space
    And Leave You There By Yourself
    Chained To Fate

    Oh, Now, We Took It Back Too Far,
    Only Love Can Save Us Now, All These Riddles That You Burn
    All Come Runnin' Back To You, All These Rhythms That You Hide
    Only Love Can Save Us Now, All These Riddles That You Burn
    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
