Black and White Photography

Do you love Black and White photos? I do. I believed that a photo doesn’t necessarily need to be in full color to make it stunningly beautiful.

Black and White Photography

Black and white photography is still surviving even in this new era of digital age. No matter how many high-tech gears in photography are present, and have a lot of new ways to edit color vibrant photos, black and white photography stands still. It is timeless. CLASSIC!

55 Tips to Get Retweeted on Twitter According to Pam Moore

Link: 55 Tips to Get Retweeted on Twitter According to Pam Moore

This is just a re-post from one site I happen to read a while ago. I hope this can give you idea on how to be credible and get your tweets re-tweeted on Twitter.

55 Tips to Increase…

I am so OVER you

Monday is my Blog hopping day since last week. I was visiting some blog sites to comment on and leave remarks to get connected with. I have subscribed to more than 200 blogs now locally and internationally.

Tuesday morning when I read some reply post on one of the site I commented on. Its from the very familiar person who feel so famous that she thought I was there on the site for her. (Pathetic!).

I reached/arrived at that particular blog thru The Bloggers Link Exchange. Visited the page, read the latest post and left a comment. (Subscribed to it too.) Later did I know the page owner/writer was somehow connected to some pathetic person I know. 

The PP left a comment stating that Commenter #1 (happens to be me) is not stopping following her and wanting to be “in her world”. My initial reaction reading that post was “Duh! As if ka naman ateng!.. Gusto mo na namang ikaw ang nasa-LimeLight?! Ang EPAL mo din eh noh?


As much as I wanted to not to get “intertwined” with that PP again, circumstances like this are inevitable. I was really eager to post a reply on her comment, but I chose not to. I am still way better than her. I know that for sure, for keeping the “professional” attitude. 

The fact that the blog site doesn’t belong to either of us, leaving unnecessary comments or irrelavant notes is unethical just to draw some attention. Besides, what’s the point replying to her, let her believe what she wants to believe. Further, the owner has nothing to do with what had happened in the past. She doesn’t even know me. 

Recalling what our common friend told me months ago, that she said I was ruining her reputation online, DUH! she’s the one ruining that. I never talked to anyone about “the issue”, in fact it was her who did all the talking. It’s not really my fault if she’s affected to all the posts/tweets I made. She have all the GUILT in her that she can’t take and assumed that she’s all I cared to talk about. LOL

If I would want to ruin her reputation online, I can do that. The fact that there are some people I just need to be in contact with just to tell some things the PP did or have said against them. LOL there are a lot actually. Plus the fact that I can have an easy access to communicate with the ORIGINAL woman and tell that how her personal social accounts have been compromised.  (Uber pathetic dba?) _Even those poeple she’s in connection with right now, she uttered words against them before, be-littling their kids, commenting on their physical appearances, kesyo di naman maganda, and such blah blah blah.. 

But I’d rather not want to do that. I will let them find out who she really is. My parents taught me how to respect a person even they’re not so deserving of that respect.

Further, you must respect yourself first before you can have other people’s respect. With things you do and say signifies what kind of person you are.

Furthermore, making up stories that you know aren’t true just to “wash your hands” over something wrong you did is just making things worse and even complicated.

Shawarma Addiction

Been craving for this food lately. I had my addiction with this food when I was still in law school. One food kiosk near San Sebastian was serving this. I stopped when I was pregnant with Yzabel. 


Now, my addiction to shawarma is not as much as before.. Now, it depends on my mood..

5 Years Now

Most of the people in my network now doesn’t really know that Yzabel’s daddy  is already dead. Maybe others thought that I am just a single mother left by the man who fathered my daughter. That wasn’t the case. Much as I wanted to be it that way (para naman kahit papanu nakikita pa ng anak ko ama nya), but not. This date 5 years ago, Zei (Zeus Belmonte Teves) departed us, due to heart enlargement complicated with cirrhosis. I really never saw that coming by then. All the while that he’s been undergoing treatment, we thought that he’ll survive it with the help of medical maintenance. But, life’s full of surprises. He gave up.   At around 6AM of December 10, 2006 when Rena (Zei’s sister) sent me an SMS informing me that they rushed her Kuya at Chinese Gen. (we weren’t living together). He’s in coma na that time. I went there to see him, Mama and the rest are all teary eyed. Saw him in that stretcher in the ER, so helpless and almost lifeless, I felt like wanting to faint. But, told myself to be strong. We’re all in tears. Then the Cardiologist talked to Mama, informed her that each time Zie had an arrest, it’s only making his heart less and less chance of survival. If he does, he’ll be totally a vegetable-like. Mama talked to his sisters and me, since Zei was already being assisted by a respirator. Whispered to Zei’s ears “Dad, if you’re so tired na, it’s ok to let go. Yza will be ok.” Then a few more moments, we all said our goodbyes to him..  All of us. Mama, Papa, Rena, Vane and all the cousins and aunts and uncles who were there. I can’t barely breath that time. It didn’t sunk into my mind that he’s gone until the time I went back home to fetch Yza. I just hugged the then 7month old baby and cried so hard. I pity her having no father to grow up with (knowing how it felt to be a tatay’s girl). Right at this very moment tears are falling as I am writing this blog. Memories of him so vivid still. All his makukulit antics. Now, seeing this little girl growing up looking just like him, it made me realized that I am still blessed despite of the things that happened. Oh, she got her Daddy’s mole in the face! haha And some of her dad’s attitude is so apparent in her now. (mana-mana nga lang talaga).   I can’t thank Zei enough for giving me the chance to be a mother to this little pea..

A Christmas Wish Addressed to Disney

Disney should make a bald princess so every little girl with cancer or no hair can feel pretty too. Its not right little girls fighting cancer don’t have some one like Cinderella to make them feel pretty. So they should make a bald princess to let them see there just as pretty as everyone else. Truth to be known is everybody is pretty in some way. For Christmas i would love to find a cure for cancer and for Disney to do this..

So so TRUE!


Yes im a female.
I push doors that clearly say pull.
I laugh harder when i try to explain why im laughing.
I walk into a room and forget why i was there.
I hide the pain from my loved ones.
I say it’s a long story when it really is not, just to get out of having to tell it.
I cry a lot more than you think i do.
I care about people who do not care about me.
And I am strong because i have to be, not because i want to be.

Day 1: I love you, Goodbye

Starting this day, I’ll be posting songs that means so much to me (for 30 days). Along with the story behind why I love/like the song. This song reminds me a lot about the things happened right after graduation. I met someone who opened my eyes into “reality”.
