I heart credit cards

I have to honestly say that credit cards are my lifeline. I swear I cannot go shopping without the plastic in my purse. I don't usually bring cash when I hit the mall (because most of the time I do not have cash! Hahaha!) so having a handy credit card always saves the day.

Since Dad gave me an extension of his VISA credit card, I knew right away that it will be used for my shopping escapades. Now that I am driving our car pretty much everywhere around the metro, Mom has finally decided to give me an extension of her Shell credit card so that we could have rebates whenever we gas up at Shell. Oh, and an additional card means more means to buy stuff!!! Woohoo! Coolness!

I think it's easy now to apply for credit cards. Take Credit-land.com for instance. The site offers reliable and timely information on online banks’ credit applications. Doesn't matter if you have a great payment history or if you bad credit score because they will match you with a credit card that is right for you. The site also provides info about any issues related to bank deals.

Call me a slave of plastic cards but in the world we live in today, who would still care about cash? It's all about credit cards, baby! Get yours and let's all get shopping crazy!

Yessss! I am once again alone in the laboratory... Times like these make me ponder more on what's been happening in my life. I get to think more about my plans and goals as well as bum about the bad times I've had for the past few days.

At 23, I used to think I have achieved much already in life than most 23-year-old girls do. But if you really think about it, nothing has changed in my life; I am still stuck in school, still can't earn my own money, and still can't move on in life. Simply put, I am still nobody so I have no reason to think I am great after all. While my other friends have moved on into the world of professional work, here I am living in the world of school work with no job experience whatsoever.

Honestly, I can't wait to graduate from my post grad degree. This has been exhausting my energy for the past year; I literally have no time to meet up with most of my friends because I spend my weekends in the lab. It's like my world revolves around the four walls of the Sensors Lab alone. Argh!

Anyway, enough of my whining... let me get back to my lab work now before I get any more Bea Alonzo-ish dramatic. It's almost 8 PM and I need to catch the last shuttle trip.

Wordless Wednesday #1: The Shore

I love the shore and the sand! The pictures above were taken at the Shangri-La Mactan in 2006.

Earth Hour 2008

Last year, Sydney made a powerful statement about global warming by turning off its lights. Over 2.2 million Sydney residents and over 2,100 businesses switched off their lights, which led to a 10.2% energy reduction across the city. This event was the first ever Earth Hour.

This year, the Earth Hour has been turned into a global movement. The whole world will make a stand against one of the greatest threats our planet currently face. Tonight at 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM, 24 cities around the globe will participate in Earth Hour 2008 and I am very proud to say that Manila, my Manila, is one of them.

Manila will switch off its lights for an hour tonight to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming. We shall witness the entire stretch of Roxas Boulevard, a road that spans through 3 cities from Manila to ParaƱaque, join the rest of the world for Earth Hour. Likewise, the City of Makati will take part in the event by turning their lights off along Buendia, Kalayaan, JP Rizal and Ayala Avenue.

According to the Earth Hour website, even SM Mall of Asia will shut down its lights for Earth Hour. Similarly, HSBC, Intel, Canon, Coke, Jollibee, Greenwhich, and Chowking will be participating in Earth Hour by turning off the lights from their billboards and signages.

I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE each one of us to take part in this campaign to prove that we, the people of the world, can effectively work together and fight global warming.

The Earth Hour is just the first big step, but we know that the real challenge goes way beyond this great start. From switching off lights to unplugging appliances when not in use, we can live up to our commitment to save our planet. Together, our simple efforts can collectively make a difference.

We can change the world. We can make everyday an Earth Hour.

So tonight at 8 PM, let's be one with the world. Let's turn out our lights for one hour.

One hour, Manila. Earth Hour.

Just missing my blog

I can't even log on in to my email account. Can't post pics for Wordless Wednesday. Can't do tags. Can't do opps (actually, there are no opps to do!) Haaaay.

I am doing this post because I terribly miss blogging, and I won't allow my busy-ness and laziness to take over me once again.

I need to update this blog over the weekend, I just hope I find the time to do so. Free, chill time is so scarce these days.

I love the 90s

You Are 56% A Child of the 90s

Ah yes, the 90s! You remember them - and they were totally phat.

Or totally dope. Or totally da bomb.

This was something really interesting. I guess 56% isn't that bad... I grew up in the late 90s. Haha! Feel free to take the quiz!
