Adgitize Bids Adios

I have been a member of Adgitize for so long but it was just 8 months that I really concentrated and used their system. In fact, this was the very first advertising site that I trusted whole- heartedly because I know that Ken Brown was honest helping the members boost on their blog site.

Photobucket


I will really miss this site especially Ken on reminding members about their promo, about tips and some tricks he share on his forum. Aside from that, I will miss to interact with other bloggers in forum and also clicking the ads of other fellow bloggers.

I was one of those advertisers who were grateful to Ken and Adgitize because it improved my page rank and traffic. How I just wish that the site will last for more but things we cannot just change and handle. I wish Ken Brown the best on his next venture. Thank you Adgitize for being a friend to us bloggers.

Below is the proof on how my earnings are at Adgitize, of course the month of December is not yet included here, but I will post if given a time.

Thank you Adgitize for everything! I will really miss you!

2011 is almost done, hello year 2012

Four more days to go and here comes year 2012. Time flies by so fast, it was just two weeks ago that typhoon struck Southern part of the Philippines and many have died. The survivors lived their lives not as the same as before and we can see the message of what God tells us humans.



Happy New Year

Blessed Season of Hope to All

I wish you all a Blessed Christmas, a season of hope and joy no matter what life brings us. It has been a wonderful year for me and my family as we welcome our baby. Even if Christmas celebration may not be extravagant this year, it is still important to know the very reason why we celebrate Christmas and that is because of Christ who came into this world to save the lost.

Merry Christmas

We may be far from our family geographically, but our hearts will always be close to them. We share them the joy and the blessings we received from above and we thanked God for everything. Merry Christmas to All! Spread Love all around you!

Typhoon Sendong that Caused tragic flash floods

They blame illegal logging and mining with regards to the effect of Typhoon Sendong visiting Iligan, Dumaguete and Cagayan de Oro in the Philippines. It is a very tragic ending leaving 950 plus people dead, mostly children and women who were helpless to save themselves during the flash floods and still more people are missing.

Its not the time who is to blame, to finger point what sector or authority is to blame. Ask ourselves this question, what did we do that caused God His anger and removed His protection on these land.

Man should realize that God is telling them something why these things happen. It is about time to ask God for forgiveness of the sins we commit to Him. It is time to get ourselves more on our knees praying, thinking not of ourselves but others and most of all asking God to forgive us.

I pray that the people of God should start to move now and pray and serve others and tell them about the Gospel of Christ. We need God above all, we are nothing without Christ.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Psalms 37:17-19

for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous. The days of the blameless are known to the LORD, and their inheritance will endure forever. In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

Joining Stay at Home Blessings $14 Adgitize ads Giveaway

"This is my entry to Stay at Home Blessings Adgitize Ad Giveaway. Join and win one month blog advertising worth $14."

I remember my very first online income comes from a forum site that gives you pay per post. Although that site was already gone, it was the stepping stone to venture on working online since I was a SAHWM (Stay at Home Wife and Mother). It was really convenient to earn some income while you are at home taking care of your children.

I also ventured on using PTC sites, paid to posts sites, surveys, reviewing stuffs and get paid and so much more. Although for this year, I didn't fully put my potential into full force because of my pregnancy and giving birth. Although I still earn money from updating my blogsites and getting some money from Adgitize, I still wanted to do more but I am just limited to do so because of time.

What I also enjoy doing online now was joining online contests and win. I also hosted a contest or give-away online last November which is also fun to have. For now, my purpose is to improve more on my SEO on my blogsite and have more money on my advertising.


Join now, contest is open from Dec. 18, 2011 till January 5, 2012.

Finally my lip gloss arrived

I ordered this Lotus Herbal lip gloss from Healthkart.com last December 1,2011. Although the problem that I have encountered was that the phone number I gave was my mobile number which I was using a defective celphone which gets off every time it gets a call even if the unit is still charging.

The box was just fine but the packaging inside wasn't that interesting
kahon



Well anyway I emailed them about this but they replied a bit late so my order got so late. I guess in my very first encounter with their website, I felt disappointed already. It was a C.O.D. and shipping was free although I have ordered from other online site that also caters free shipping but the delivery and service was fast and they respond to my mail quick also.

Receipt plus the bubble wrapped lip gloss which is difficult to remove
resibo


Anyway, I was just happy to receive it today and it was a tinted lip gloss with a very enticing color suited on my skin tone. I don't know if I would still try to order from them but let's see if they offer big discounts this coming holiday.

A Samsung mobile for hubby

This mobile was ordered online via Home shop18.com, it was fast to be delivered and the transaction went smoothly without any problem. Hubby needed to get a mobile since he was borrowing my mobile as I used his old mobile at home since it has issues with the battery.

Anyway this is not a review about the product Samsung. If I have the time, I will then post it on my review blog site so that you might also know something about the mobile Samsung Galaxy Y. I will also keep aside the review of the online shop we bought this mobile of course.

Anyway, I just wanted to share how it was delivered and I was the one who de-boxed it since hubby was at work during the delivery. It was an android phone which is easy but very sensitive to operate. Although the only thing that puzzles hubby was the connection using WIFI since he has been trying to tag it using our home wireless connection to be used in this mobile but up till now, it is still a puzzle to him. Anyway, check this out.


Here is the package that I personally received

My bucket list for Christmas



I don't know why I feel like this but I really feel like I miss Christmas so much that even if I have to create a bucket list for Christmas, it will just be a punch in the moon because there is no way that I might be able to accomplish most of what I wanted unless there will be a miracle that will happen within this week or the next week to come in order for me to accomplish what I wanted this month.



Happy Christmas
DesiComments.com | Christmas | Forward this Picture




I made a promise to God that I wanted to follow and do ,not because I was influenced or so, but because I wanted to make something out of so many years that I have been promising myself that I should do. I am still hoping for the best to come and that God will enable me to have a chance to do what I really wanted for my family, for the ministry, for my brethrens, for my niece and brothers.

I really do miss them especially 15 days from now, it will be Christmas. I have a lot of god children back home that I will also be missing to give them my present personally since I am away and for sure, if they drop by our house, my mom will be the one to give them. I really do want to be a blessing to my family and I asked God to help me accomplish this in reality because in fact financially, I am just depending on hubby and for now, my earnings online are limited due to the fact that my time is divided also in taking care of my little one.

I am thankful still because of the great blessing that God gave us baby Samuel and I do hope and pray that our baby will also meet my family back home as they are all excited and anxious to see him and take care of him. I made a bucket list long time ago that when I tried to check back on it, some of the list I included where already been answered.

Do you have a bucket list for Christmas or even in the New Year? I think so! Everyone dreams to have something or do something in life which is worth while.

I didn't expect any site to send me a payment until I logged into my email and found out that Foodie blogroll has sent me another payment. Even if it was just a small amount, I was able to continue my advertisement on Adgitize so it was really a big help on my part.

Foodie blogroll is just new on advertising which focuses merely on sites that caters about food which I have on my other blog. I am so happy to receive monthly from them and even if it takes them 3 months late before they send the amount, I am still thankful for that amount.

Here is my payout and just wanted to share it to you guys.

24 Days to go before Christmas

Do you have a Christmas Wish? Is it almost done? I mean most on your wish list were checked? I know that most of us do like to have a list particularly if we have godchildren hoping for us to give them their gifts.


Merry Christmas

DesiComments.com


Christmas in the Philippines is one of a kind. It is the longest celebration were people starts to prepare and decorate starting from the month of November and it will last till January. I will really miss Christmas in the Philippines were kids will start to carol and sing Christmas songs house to house at night starting Dec. 16 till eve of Christmas day.

People started to buy gifts for their loved ones. Family and friends do exchange gifts and the spirit of giving is really in the air.

Malls every where are with Christmas sale offers and promo discounts to gather customers appeal.

Offices celebrate Christmas party in advance and every employee expects to win in the raffle draw or get their Christmas bonus at least.

Christmas decors and gifts are being sold in the sidewalk where hawkers stay till midnight and you can bargain for the price which is much more cheaper although don't ask me about the quality of it.

Christmas Food is prepared in a very Filipino way where neighbors also give and exchange what they have prepared and happily share it with their neighbors and family friends.

Where communication companies are always congested because everyone wishes and greets Merry Christmas and you will receive that message very late.

Fire crackers add the excitement and loud sound of music being played from house to house as everyone celebrates Christmas.

Colorful Christmas trees, Christmas lights and decors displayed not only in malls, but on most houses, offices, streets and municipalities.

I just described how happy to see Christmas in my own country which I will be seeing only online. Hope one day I can get back there with my hubby and baby and celebrate it together with my family. Advance Merry Christmas!

Disappointed in Registration

I could not believe it.. it was really too much when hubby told me that when he tried to register the birth of our son, he waited for two hours to just find out that it will take 4 more months for the birth registration to be processed.


Photobucket


What????? I said what the heck? what if I wanted to apply passport for my son and register him in my country's embassy for the NSO so that I will also have a copy. You mean for four months we won't be able to get out of India? and if I wanted to take a vacation back to Philippines, I won't be able to do so for this coming December because of their so called slow process.

Up to now they say they are processing the registration of those born in month of July. It's pretty frustrating me because I really wanted to process my baby's passport and register him at the embassy. But I cannot do anything if this will be the case. 

A lot of members I asked in a forum what to do, they say bribery is the solution. I don't like to impose such and never in my mind do I have to use that kind of trick just to solve the problem. I don't do bribery and I will never ask a person to influence fast processing. In fact, I don't think the latter is a good idea at all.

If I only knew how difficult the system here for registration, I would not like to give birth here but everything has a purpose and I cannot just do anything but to depend on God to help us. I may have to be still and be calm because ranting and complaining more can never help me also.

If you are a foreigner, let me just now remind and tell you that if you plan to give birth in India, this will happen to you, so better think again.

Sunday Reflections

Another Sunday and a new week to come, don't forget that it will be month of December soon and Christmas is just around the corner. Everyday I feel excited but somewhat missing to go back home because I really do enjoy Christmas vacation in the Philippines because it is incomparable.



Photobucket


Looking forward for hubby to get this coming Sunday off so that we can check out the church near us. I would also like to give to you these verses as it gives us an idea of what true giving is. As a christian, we are told to give generously. I would like to share with you 2 Cor. 9:6-15, it is wonderful verse that every Christian should know, here it is:

From Bible gateway:

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”[a]

10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!


It is really important to give since we are told to give generously and we can help expand the kingdom of God through giving correctly. It is our heart that God sees every time we give. It is also important to just stay low and quiet when you do charity works since God is the one that will repay you. Indeed when we give, we will also reap. It is really storing up treasures in heaven where moth or rust will not destroy says in Matt.6:19. Have a pleasant weekends my friends!

Happy Thanksgiving Day

To my relatives in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving Day to you. In the Philippines we don't have this occasion although for me and my family, everyday is a thanksgiving day from the rising of the sun when you wake up , we already praise God for the life that He has given us.
Thanksgiving should be expressed everyday even if it is not a very good day because it is written in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I also thanked God for today is another answered prayer for me as He healed us all.

It will always be good to feel thankful rather than to complain and be sad. I realize that nothing so good will happen if I just frown and feel so blue about some problem in life. So I decided to give a smile and be thankful to God and be happy in life.

Clothes Galore

Yesterday I promised that I will be posting the clothes that hubby bought for me since I had my day off yesterday since MIL took care of our baby. This time, I will be posting the beautiful kurtis I selected at the mall to where we shopped and even the free items given to us when we purchase the clothes.

I really opted to choose clothes which has buttons and hook and eye so that it will be easier for me to breastfed baby. So without any further ado, here are those kurtis and chudidars.

Mommy's Day Out

It was a great sunny day today and hubby asked me if we can go out since I was really hesitant to buy some chudidar because most of my dress were not appropriate for breast feeding so I said I needed new clothes that can be open easily and those tops are with buttons or hook and eye.


cute emoticons



Indeed it was such a blessing that he bought me four wonderful pieces of my choice of chudidar as we hurriedly want to go back home since baby was just taken cared of by my MIL. I was really happy that this day, hubby was not so stingy about the prices that my clothes are since it was ranging from Rs 600 to Rs900.00 but he told me not to ask him again within 10 months, harharhar!

I appreciate the design and the textile of course and it is with a promo of free duppatta and stretchable pants per two purchase of chudidar clothes. This ready made clothes are fashionable that I also don't be worried to go to a tailor or look for a style since some chudidar sets are far more expensive than ready made chudidars.

After buying clothes, we headed for our weekly grocery and MIL called us to come back home since baby is already crying. I was missing our little one and I am very much eager to hold him and kiss him and give him some hug and feed him since I know he can easily detect that MIL is giving him only formulated milk, not from what he is used of which is breast milk. Another fun filling day and Praise God for this wonderful day and for the blessings.By the way, I will be posting these fabulous clothes by tomorrow's blog, so tired already!

Things to do but limited to do so

I have a lot of things in mind, ideas conceived but the problem is that I cannot implement it at the moment when I think of my present situation, taking care of baby, deciding when is the next step for me if I have to stay with my in-laws so that I won't be bothered of being alone when it comes to taking care of my little one.



Photobucket


Hubby usually goes to work and I will be left at home and my mind thinks crazy things that I can be upset sometimes when I don't stay strong. But when I think of God that He is always there for me, I get back on my knees to pray and He gives me the strength that I need.

I am also thinking that my blog will be stagnant also if I need to stay away and I will be offline or irregular online to check my emails, my article writing and so much more. I really do need to consider some breather so that when baby gets a bit bigger, at least I would not be worrying too much unlike the way I used to.

I don't know if I will be able to do blogging and do my hobby at the same time. But I was really aiming to earn money for Christmas is soon to come, but what else can I do, I am limited. I just think if I was back in my own country, it would have been easier or I am more comfortable.

Most of the times, my mind shouts a lot how much I need my mom to be by my side and help me with my little one. But I cannot do anything unless I have the money to take her here or for me to visit back home, when most of the time I feel homesick. It's not like before that when I was alone, I can do something. When I became a mother, it was different, it was more responsibility for me to think of and all I wanted is to be strong and get the day going.

Thirty-eight days before Christmas, I will surely miss the most happiest Christmas celebration of all, which is in the Philippines, sighhhh! Wishing we were all together for Christmas!

Pacquiao Vs. Marquez IV? Give me a break its, OA!

I told in my blog two days ago that Manny Pacquiao really won the Nov. 13, 2011 bout. I was really convinced that Manny did his best on that fight even if he did not knocked out Marquez on the last round. But that does not mean that I doubted his ability as a boxer.

A lot of Mexicans were dismayed when they heard the judges decision but little did they know that there is a video and photo circulating now in Youtube and Facebook about the dirty tricks that Manuel Marquez used against Manny Pacquiao.

I saw it during the fight but what I am not aware of is that Team Pacquiao did not complain about this dirty trick. I really don't think that Round 4 will be okay to pursue, for me it will be over acting, and corny already. It was already clear on this third round who is the real fighter and winner and that is Manny Pacquiao.


This is the sample video of who is the real winner

But anyway, you folks still have the time to join my online contest before I end it up on Nov. 20, 2011. It's not big enough but something is still better than nothing right? you cannot just get $10 in the street as you walk.

Another Victory For Manny Pacquiao vs. Manuel Marquez

I am not an avid fan of boxing and I don't regularly follow the fights of Congressman Manny Pacquiao. But due to my friends who regularly follow and post events of Manny's fight, I got curious to check his latest fight and that was the third fight against Manuel Marquez of Mexico just this day.

At first round I can say that both boxers show great fight, exchanging blows and punches. Although some Filipinos were not that excited to see how the fight ends. Probably they must have been waiting for Manny to pulverize Marquez for the third time. I can say that Manny still did his job as a good fighter. He didn't take any advantage and show arrogantly towards his opponent.

Some say his performance as a boxer is deteriorating since he is not fully concentrated on his practice because he attends as a Congressman and also an actor to his television shows. But for me, he just do give time, the question is, when is he going to retire and take time to concentrate only on his field of interest, which is not about boxing. But I know that there will be another bout coming up which is Mayweather. Whether he fights him or not, its all up to PacMan.

I found this spreading over the internet showing how Manny Pacquiao won today. If this is true, just watch the fight since there will always be a replay online and you just need to surf it out what channel will give you best.

Got this posted from my Facebook friend




Anyway Congratulations once again to PacMan (Congressman Manny Pacquiao) who did make his country proud. Another milestone of his career as a boxer and has proven himself a gentleman inside and outside the ring.

What's so Auspicious on 11/11/11?

I remember what my first gynecologist say when I have my very first prenatal check-up, she said I will give birth on Eleven-eleven-eleven, meaning Nov. 11, 2011 which stands for 11/11/11 (month/day/year) which they say is auspicious date.

But what is really so auspicious about this date. What I know is that it has a record of its own, in triplicate form, meaning lucky for most. Anyway, going back to her prediction, it did not happen since I did not give birth on that date but a month earlier.

I really have no regret about giving birth earlier. I just missed the month of my father's birth month which is also in November but I am thankful for what He has done for me and for my family.

Okay, so going back again to Nov. 11, 2011. People are busy thinking what to do on this special day, most pregnant ladies here in India wants to schedule their labor on this day, others like wedding and something special for an occasion, they also want to establish a date and reserve it for this exciting event as they say.

For me, days gone by so fast, God holds the future and what is important is to give to God this day before you start your day, you have to thank God for this day that you are alive and well and He is the one that sustains you and provides all you need.

By the way, I browsed online and found out that there was a movie also of the same given title. Normally, people are so superstitious about dates and they will do anything to make their belief surpass their expectations, be it an ordinary man or a businessman, they treat special dates with something to hold on to. But for us, what is important is to give the best to God on a daily basis of your life, living a life which will please God.

Going Back to my Old Hobby

I was happy to receive the aida cloths that my MIL bought. I find it hard to find here in the city particularly I am not familiar with the shops here to where it is available. Now that I have the textile, the next step I need is to have a good pattern and buy corresponding threads.

Aida Cloths in three colors, pink, yellow and off white

I haven't seen any DMC threads yet, all I see was Anchor threads so I needed to look online to convert the DMC numbers into equivalent Anchor numbers. If you don't know what I am talking about, I am talking about Cross stitching.

Aida Cloth for only Rs40 a meter

Ever since College, it was one of my favorite hobby. I do sew different designs and patterns and gift it to my friends and family. My mother appreciated most of what I sew and up till now, my work of art was at home and I am missing it so much that I asked hubby if I can sew again and he said no problem.

I just hope I can complete my collection first, from patterns, to threads and needles to begin my work. I am thinking of doing Christmas designs and gift it to my friends. I am also thinking of making book marks and coasters that they can use.

Happy To See my New PR

I could not believe my eyes when I opened my website HangoutwithJhing. It was zero PR (Page Rank) before, but when I tried to login back and I checked the tool I have on my chrome and it says PR 2. I could not believe how it spiked to 2 since it was 0 before, probably the best consideration I have was the online contests that I have shared here and the pages that I update everyday which makes more visits.

I am also thankful for the PR 2 of my food blog which even if not updated on a regular basis, I make sure that I keep in touch with my readers through their comments and whenever I share exciting and wonderful recipes.

I am not that skillful in SEO yet, but this is really a nice move for me to continue what I have in mind to keep my status up and going. Thanks to Google and to my wonderful advertising tool, it does make a good improvement on my page rank.

Delivery Update for webcam iSmart SC01

It was just two business days, I can't imagine it was quicker than I thought. Our webcam has been delivered via Blue Dart. But what is more interesting was the quality of the camera that we have. It has a lot of features when being used online although it does support well on using Skype.

I really have no issues about the 12MP which is very much a great advantage since before we were just using a Genius webcam with lower pixel and very much limited. Now let me tell something about the camera since it is made in India, it does have at least a year warranty.

Looks like a Microphone

My October payout from Adgitize

I would like to thank Ken for another payment I received from Adgitize. This month of October is really a great month for me and my family. I hope to continue my advertisement in Adgitize since hubby is planning to send us off to Goa,not now but probably by months to come and that means no computer for me there so I will have a difficult time to update my blogs.

But anyway here is the payout I got and just want to share it with you guys.

A need for a new webcam

Our webcam has been used for years and I was not needing much to upgrade such gadget although whenever we use skype to chat online with my folks back home, we do notice that the camera flickers with a lot of white noise background which is very annoying to look at.

Hubby just ordered online and let's see what it may give us an advantage. I wasn't able to pick up the name of the brand since hubby ordered it online while I was busy attending to baby's need. Anyway hope that the resolution will be just fine as well as the speed of it.

I do feel incomplete and lacking if I don't seem to talk to my family back home. In fact I feel homesick already, probably it is one of the annoying feeling of Postnatal period, arghh! The hormones may have caused me to feel a bit more sad and feeling all alone.

I only grab the courage everyday to God who is always there for me and my family. I have nothing else to turn to during these moments. I am just so thankful everyday for the love of God that He is always protecting and guiding me and my family. Will be posting the picture of the camera soon and together with the specifications, about a review, I will but I will be posting it on my other blog site. Have a happy Sunday today!
