...doing what i love most. haha.

I got so many stuffs to share like the aerobatics show we witnessed last Friday, but first things first. Have a look at the motorcycle stunt some Americans shared during the break time. The motorbike carreered down the runway of Alain International Airport and like a movie clip, two police cars tailed. Of course they did not caught up with the leather clad guy. hihi.

I'll be back again tomorrow for some auto industry news. Let's see which luxury cars are going down with recession. tsk, tsk. Ciao everyone!

What Your Little Black Dress Says About You

You are lively and outgoing. You are naturally friendly.

You enjoy meeting new people and making new connections.

If you were a shoe, you would be: High heeled boots

Hmmmnn i got to start using my high heeled boots before Andre learns to walk hihi. There is no way i can run around them while going after Andre's first steps.

have a good laugh!!

I received this e-mail from hubby and i want to share it with everybody. Read on and have a good laugh!!

How Consultants Make a Difference

For all of you who frequent restaurants and understand the need for faster service, this short story is a timeless lesson on how Consultants can make a difference to an organization.

Last week, we took some friends out to a new restaurant and noticed that the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt pocket. It seemed alittle strange. When another waiter brought our water I noticed he also had a spoon in his shirt pocket.Then, I looked around and saw that all the staff had spoons in their pockets.

When the waiter came back to serve our soup I asked,"Why the spoon?"

"Well", he explained, "the restaurant's owners hired Andersen Consulting to revamp all our processes. After several months of analysis, they concluded that the spoon was the most frequently dropped utensil. It represents a drop frequency of approximately 3 spoons per table per hour. If our personnel are better prepared, we can reduce the number of trips back tothe kitchen and save 1.5 man-hours per shift."

As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he wasable to replace it with his spare. "I'll get another spoon next time I go to the kitchen instead of making an extra trip to get it right now." I was impressed.

I also noticed that there was a string hanging out of the waiter's fly. Looking around, I noticed that all the waiters had the same string hanging from their flies. So before he walked off, I asked the waiter,

"Excuse me, but can you tell me why you have that string right there?""Oh, certainly!" Then he lowered his voice. "Not everyone is so observant. That Consulting firm I mentioned also found out that we can save time in the rest-room. By tying this string to the tip of you know what, we can pull it out without touching it and eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening the time spent in the rest-room by 76.39 percent".

I asked, "After you get it out, how do you put it back?"

"Well," he whispered, "I don't know about the others, but I use the spoon.

environmentalists hit a speed hump

They may be popular with residents wanting to prevent speeding on their streets, but research has shown that speed humps can be harmful to the environment.

The traffic calming measure, widely used in residential areas can increase fuel consumption by 47 percent on 50km/h roads, a study has found.

The study, carried out by an independent engineer and car tester in the UK, found out that the average car achieves 58.15mpg at a steady speed of 50km/h. But when going over humps, it will reach only 30.85mpg. The results were calculated by averaging the results of two cars.

It also found that cutting the speed limit from 40km/h to 25 km/h pumps up CO2 emissions by 10 percent.

amphibious vehicle

How would you like to drive an open-top underwater car?

Squba, a car that can be driven underwater is set to be unveiled at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show. It has been developed by Swiss company Rinspeed.

A James Bond enthusiast, the head of the Rinspeed Frank Rinderknecht, had always dreamt of making an amphibious vehicle similar to the submersive Lotus Espirit from the Spy Who Loved Me film.

The squba transforms into an underwater vehicle in which passengers breathe with the help of compressed air masks. Propelled by electric motors, the convertible sports car can descend up to 10 meters underwater.

Wow. I guess you need to be an open water diver too before you can drive this car.

speed test

I never had any formal typing or computer lessons. My grandma bought me a desktop back in college and it was up to me to learn how to type hihi. I don't follow any typing rules because i do not know any of them but back when i was working for DepEd, i pride myself for finishing encoding tasks early. Anyway, I found this typing speed test from dear blogger friend Jenny and i thought i take the test myself. Here is the result...

33 words


Hmmmn, not bad. Considering that I have not been working for about two years now and the only typing i do for the last two months is when i send e-mails or when I put photo caption on my friendster pics haha.

So how about you? Take the test and let me know your speed.

get quick and easy loan

Our neighbor Vanessa came to our house last week asking for help. Her adorable six month old baby is scheduled for a third shot of the polio and tetanus vaccine. But Van's husband's salary is still one week away. Their land lord increased their rent at such a short notice so she decided to pay the increase first and hopefully find a way to get money for the immunization. Unfortunately, we are also on a tight budget so I am not able to help Van. Having just given birth two months ago, we are just starting to pay off our bills. Instead, i recommended the payday loan to Van. This she immediately availed and we were both delighted on how easy and quick the whole process was. It sure saved inexperienced Moms like us from a lot of worry.

So how does a payday loan works? Foremost, payday loan was created to help bridge the time you are out of money until you receive your next pay check. For instance, you need cash for emergencies (or in this case, a health emergency), or for car payments and repairs, or for any unforeseen bill, you can avail of this type of loan by visiting the website PayDay Loans. There you can apply for a loan of $100 to $1500 and submit online. There are no credit checks required so for as long as you are employed and you have an active checking account, your loan will be approved within 24 hours. Very helpful isn't it?

So next time you need a cash advance, visit!


For the nth time, I am suffering from last song syndrome. I am soo smitten by this beautiful song from Tori Amos. I have been listening to it over and over while my little Andre is asleep.

I found a video and lyrics and I am sharing it with everybody. I guess the song is trying to say that to love someone unconditionally does not necessarily mean tying him down. And yeah, i strongly agree that's what love is all about -- giving someone their freedom, their own time to grow and find themselves. And in the end, to realize that knowing who you are is the secret to growing together and that freedom is being in each other's arms all along.

Sleeps With Butterflies

airplanes take you away again
are you flying above where we live
then i look up, a glare in my eyes
are you having regrets about last night

i'm not, but i like rivers that
rush in so then i dove in
is there trouble ahead for you, the acrobat
i won't push you, unless you have a net

you say the word you know i will find you
or if you need some time i don't mind
i don't hold onto the tail of your kite
i'm not like the girls that you've known
but i believe i'm worth coming home to
kiss away night
this girl only sleeps with butterflies
with butterflies
so go on and fly then, boy

balloons look good from on the ground
i fear with pins and needles around
we may fall then stumble upon a carousel
it could take us anywhere

you say the word you know i will find you
or if you need some time i don't mind
i don't hold onto the tail of your kite
i'm not like the girls that you've known
but i believe i'm worth coming home to
kiss her, waiting by this girl
this girl

you say the word you know i will find you
or if you need some time i don't mind
i don't hold onto the tail of your kite
i'm not like the girls that you've known
but i believe i'm worth coming home to
kiss away night
this girl only sleeps with butterflies
with butterflies
with butterflies
so go on and fly boy

You are White Chocolate

You are White Chocolate
You are sweet, caring, and truly very innocent.
Whether your naive ways are a bit of act or not, people like to take care of you.
You are a quiet flirt, and your power is often underestimated!
