5 Google Docs secrets



I learned from this video that I can do drag and drop images to my Google Doc files and also can insert images from Google Image search, I didn't know about that and the fun part here is that I can drag and drop all my doc files to my Google Docs and also save and back up all of it by batches. Awesome!!

I'm heavily using Google Docs for awhile now because I'm always online and I share my files to some of my friends to do collaboration edit and view of our files.

the robbery suspect

SAM_1277
We are very lucky that we recovered all our items and jewelries from the robbery suspect, and thanks to the security guard roaming around on the other side of the village who caught the suspect walking towards the exit of the village. I got this news awhile ago from my wife and I went back home to check and see what happened. Then I heard that the suspect is now behind bars and then we went back to the police station to claim the jewelries that the suspect kept it under his brief. (more story below)

The extra charge in your credit card online app


Anyone here uses their credit card ?

Using your credit card is hassle free and its very convenient to use when shopping or going around the city. No longer do you need to stuff your man wallet with bills (like old folks do), all we need is a “swipe” or for my wife, she calls it “magical cards”, Because it contains money that we can borrow from a bank and use it to pay some bills of the food we eat in a restaurant, treat our friends in a meal, buy clothes from a store, book a hotel and even buy an airplane ticket. I’ve seen some horrors before about the problems of some people who use their cards in purchasing and buy some items, and the horror starts when they see the bank's statement and the amount of money that they should pay back. Others don't have any knowledge about credit cards and all I can hear is that they were automatically registered by their bank.. that's a weird gimik.

But in my case, I’m a little allergic to credit cards (and also to banks), I don’t even use one and I’m happy to use my on hand cash every time I go out, but I only use my BDO ATM and also got this China Trust debit card, but managing it with my bank is kinda hassle for my side with my busy schedules for my work (and I hate standing in a long line). But Then I realized that I needed one already due to that I’m going to travel outside the country and I’m sure credit cards are helpful and good companion when I’m away from my country and from my bank, I can use it in case of emergency and use it if ever I want to purchase something on the other side of the world. My sister will help me get that HSBC credit card, its a some sort of extension and I’ll just let her fix it and wait for some papers for me to sign in, it will be a brand new world for me if ever I own a credit card and reserve a time for me to pay a visit to my bank just to pay the credit card bills.

Its a great habit for credit card users to pay their credit card bill on time, because if we skipped paying the credit card bills, the amount of the finance charges/interest will be added and it will continue to increase. This is the time when credit cards become a financial burden. I also learned that from other people, I got scared in using a credit card, but I’m glad that there are tips online and blogs to read about how to save money and organize ourselves and how to use credit cards properly.

From the online networks I have and blogs to surf, I stumbled this cool credit card finance charge simulator and generator online, check : http://theextracharge.com/ .

I learned from this site about paying my bills on time, I think I’m ready to own a credit card now.
After trying the site, Its funny, that you can calculate how much money you spent and a computation on the finance charge being given by our local banks, its kinda weird that I want to know a finance charge given by the bank that holds our card, but the bank is not listed. You can try it for free and see what's behind those magical cards and the extra charges given after the swipe. But for others just dont care about these finance charges, but I do know that we have this automatically updated on our bills whenever we use our credit cards.

what are your thoughts about credit cards? any sci fi story that you can share (or a horror story LOL) about these magical cards?

Baby Ash 1st year birthday preparation for May 24


Few weeks ago was our preparation for Ashton's 1st year old birthday, we got busy the past weeks when Ash was confined in the hospital, all our attention was into Ash's recovery and also taking care of all those hospital stuff at The Medical City. I started to count my money on my pocket and its already gone, and now I'm on a big debt and still trying to pay it one by one. Ok enough of that money drama. Mom and Dad sent their birthday blow out to Ash and then I told my wife to use it to buy lechon for the celebration, we love lechon! that's why I requested for it hehehe. then my wife told me that after she ordered the lechon, she then use the remaining cash and ordered a birthday cake for Ash in Goldilocks.heard it was an animated movie UP cake design, I wonder how it looked.

Our celebration is not that big or bongga for now, but we will just have our private celebration first with the entire family...good to hear that my relatives will join with us.. Really excited for Ash's day.

Few nights ago, Tita Len Montesclaros bought a load of Blues Clues DVD in AstroKids as a gift for Baby Ash...aww tnx Tita Len

feels like im low in blood

i feel weak and getting tired so easy..im still recovering from that stomach flu and digestion problems few days ago and followed by a fever. But its okay because I needed more rest for the upcoming busy-ness as the ToyCon event near and my preparing for a series of trips on the start of June. I feel like that my blood is low, but I try to eat slowly now and digest food, its a wrong move this morning to cook that beef noodle soup and Lucky Me beef is so salty for me, I didn't finished and I felt dizzy after it..could be those preservatives and salty beef flavor. But my energy went back after eating again that nilagang meal in a little bowl with rice. My wife cooked spaghetti today and I ate 2 mini bowls of it, but I felt weak again after feeling some indigestion.. hahahaha. I went sick again around 8pm and drank lots of water to hydrate myself and rest on the bed with Ash... My energy got drained after playing, taking care, feeding, bathing and put to sleep my baby boy Ash.

Ohhh. Ash will be 1 year old this Tuesday...arghhh I should be 100 percent recovered by that day. Ok.time to rest and eat carefully.

i'm sick for the entire day

Picture0368
Yesterday was a terrible day for me, I got sick and was in bed for the entire day, so weak and can't even eat properly. I skipped two meals that day and it left so weak for the following day, but I tried eating a can of tuna paella at around 10pm just to give me some energy boost, but the weak body and dizzy head are present and I got the hard time of my life surviving it. I always say my son's name whenever I see him, it feels like I'm going to die.

The sickness of my Friday stated in that thursday morning were I felt bloated and looks like that I ate something that is not good to my health and tummy, so the morning sickness started as I began to be felt weak and dizzy, and I have difficulties in working on that day but I managed to pull myself up and drink some medicine to try to digest that food on my tummy and watch Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides premiere night in SM North IMAX, and then at the middle part of the movie I felt that I already have a fever and started to go weak and after I arrived home that late night, I drink another set of medicine and went back to bed.

And the next morning I woke up, I am so sick...and I can't even stand up and started to hug the toilet every minute, then I became weak, and I got scared of eating some food because I feel like I'm going to throw up. I let my horror days kills me for a day and prayed to God that I'll be okay on the next day, because I feel like its my judgement day. Because I'm scared of eating, all I did is drank some water and go back to bed. This morning when I woke up, I felt that I still have some energy, bowel movements are getting better so I decided to eat a sandwich and a hot coffee,but I feel weak and dizzy again. I went to my laptop and check my email just to make my self energetic, but after an hour, I felt weak again. I started to complain a pain in my back and neck, could be from that staying on bed for the entire day. And then this lunch time, I ate a "nilagang baboy", I ate a small portion of rice, 2 leaves of cabbage and a slick of meat. I felt a little bit okay, but still weak. I went up stairs and sat on the couch and watch TV, I feel the meat is hard to digust again, and after 3 hours, it gave me some energy to stand up, walk, talk and even take a bath.

It sucks that almost every year I always get sick and the last time I was terrible sick was when my wife gave birth to Ash, I'm so sick that day and staying in the hospital kills me whenever I chill and have a fever, but I fight it because I need to live for my baby boy Ash.

Looks like I'm 75 percent okay today, I missed a lot of important meetings, deadlines and project yesterday and.....dsdfsfsdf.ok im weak im going back to bed.

busy Az…busy Ash

P5185523
I was surprised to discover that Ash and my wife were in SM MOA yesterday, I was about to go home around the afternoon and decided to take the shuttle nearby, then my wife called me and told me that they’re going to visit a store in SM MOA and meet up with Tita Len. It was half an hour after I booted myself out of Starbucks and went to the shuttle terminal, then I went back again in the mall all scorched out and tired, but the extra energy came in when I learned that my baby boy is in the mall too,… it means…play time!

Listerine did this to me because I'm not into oral #totalcare

photo
I was minding my own business after arriving in Oceana in SM MOA complex, after registering on the table, a pretty girl asked me to get my contact details, so I gave her my contact details, and I was nervous in talking because I'm not confident that my breath might smell bad due to that I'm tired and thirsty and my mouth is all dry after traveling outside the province to attend this event in Manila.

Then the girl told me to try this mouth wash..and then the photographer caught this funny and also annoying photo of me with a bloated cheeks, there I realized that the bacteria in my mouth that are busy having their own party got bombed by Listerine Total Care and that results to a big explosion inside my mouth, killing 99.9% of that bad oral bacteria.

I told the photographer not to show the photo to the public, but then I was the last guy who went out of the venue and found out that I'm the last person to claim my photo...so everyone saw my photo with a big cheeks...omigosh... but but but... (more story below)

Don't be fooled by that fake "Facebook Dislike button"



As I opened my Facebook account and then I saw this two message posted in my FB wall, I started to read it careful and study if this is legit, and then I hovered my mouse arrow pointing to that link "Enable Dislike Button", then I saw that the link will direct to a Facebook fake page. I didn't think twice and I immediately remove this post in my wall. I started to do a research and found an article "'Enable Dislike Button' scam spreading on Facebook" , After reading it... I learned that the Facebook Dislike Button is a fake and a scam. If ever that Facebook will have its own Dislike button, there will be announcements and also news spreading online, so its better to Google it first, research and read, before we click it.

Its funny that some people wanted to earn money and they got the idea to use this FB app to scam people with their money generating online survey recommendation. Although that the directed link to website is not harmless, but still an annoying item in my FB wall to see a fake FB links floating. If you saw one...delete it right away and do not click it. If you click the link and posted the link in your address bar, all of your FB network and friends will receive the same FB app note in their wall, telling them to enable their FB dislike buttons.

Facebook users should be very careful and aware of these fake FB apps and links

Reel Steel movie trailer now up!


Check out this trailer, as the UFC for humans has been replaced by robots..astig!

From the director of “A Night at the Museum” comes DreamLinkWorks Pictures’ “Real Steel,” a gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. DreamWorks has just released the film’s newest trailer which you can watch at this link: http://youtu.be/KaacCiGkUcg.

In the film, Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next.

When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Opening across the Philippines in October 2011, “Real Steel” is a DreamWorks Picture to be distributed locally by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.

Ash and Medical City day 2

nokiac30703
Ashton starts to get bored already for our day 2 stay in The Medical City and thanks to our Acer laptop that gives a little entertainment for Ash in watching Brainy Baby dvds and playing online game at the Fisher Price's website. I received bad news when I arrived there this afternoon and the high fever still kicks in and Ash started to chill at night, We're glad that they are already in the hospital and doctors and nurses are available 24 hours a day. Ashton loves to ride the Hummer motorized car inside the lobby, this was used by kids whenever they exit the room going to the gate of the hospital, the toy car ride sits on a metallic bar and like a wheel chair and push cart, the parent will control its movement and as for Ashton, it is his new toy that day, he rides and enjoy it..just to make his day not so boring.

Been busy since yesterday as we brought baby Ash in The Medical City to find out what’s the cause of this high fever in the afternoon and at night.

My Poreotics Mall Hop Coverage
by: Daomisyel

I am not prepared! That's my first impression my brother Azrael told me to cover the Poreotics Presscon a while ago at The Event center in Megamall. Good thing that I brought my Samsung Corby II and took snapshots (kinda blurred but its ok) of the group. I arrived when the interview was started and the group were very proud of the warm support that the Filipinos were giving. Right after the presscon the group returned for the main show at 5pm.

You can select a number of comics and then take it home with you for FREE!, I’m not sure if how many comics you can get for FREE, because last time we have a limit of copies that we should follow so that everyone can get the free comics.
