Avoidance

“Our biggest problems arise from the avoidance of the smaller ones.” — Jeremy Caulfield

Video credit: Erica Rot

So let me ask you this, what are you avoiding recently and why do you think you are doing it? Is avoidance the ultimate answer to refrain from pain, monotony, or the lack of  passion to live?

Don’t waste your time

Stop wasting your time on someone who doesn’t appreciate you the way you should be appreciated. Never ever settle for mediocrity, for being just an option, for being the one who’s just fun to be with, for being the one who’s always there desperately waiting, for mere concern or pity or for someone who likes you just because he knows he’s got the power to break you.

It is better to have nobody than somebody who is half yours, half there or doesn’t want to be there, or is there and then suddenly disappears. You can be in love and you can be in a relationship. But they’re not always the same thing.

My Valentine Ukulele

Before anything else, happy hearts day everyone! To those who are inlove couples, singles, even those who are suffering from heartbreaks — we are remembering this day, that at least love works for others. 🙂

Ok so who will I be dating today? That would be a top secret, but one thing is for sure, I just had my pre-valentine gift for myself — My ukulele arrived 2 days ago. I’m proud to say that this is Philippine made, but its quality is world class! It is made of solid acacia top, back & sides, mahogany neck, ipil fretboard & bridge. It comes with a cool padded bag and used Aquila Nylgut strings. It totally changes my perception about local products, the moment I strum it, it is even better than imported ukulele products out there. Hats off to Chestone guitars for creating such an amazing product.

Year-ender naughty pickup lines!

2012 holiday season had passed, I hope y’all had a great time! For some enigmatic reasons, they say that 83.7% of the total world population, is in the mood for love making, random consensual-sex, getting laid, smooching here there and everywhere, cuddling-anytime-you-want during yuletide season…

Do you actually believe that? And maybe this is the very reason, why December, is the best time people throw more pickup lines, to get laid or at least set the mood :D, compared to any other months of the year. Without further adieu, here are the best Christmas & New Year’s pickup lines?

Have a great day and head, I meant ahead!

Pure Evil Talks from A to Z

Got this from a blog site I stumbled upon, and so here’s my a-z list, as my year-ender post for 2012! See you next year!

A. If you could get away with one murder in your lifetime without any legal, social, or emotional repercussions, would you kill someone?

No, I don’t think I had that criminal tendency.

B. What is your first thought when you receive a compliment in your blog, are you excited for the idea of someone from potentially the other side of the world wanting to talk to you or fearful that someone will criticize you?

It is always exciting to get to know people with different culture, even geographical locations…for as long as he/she keeps me interested.

C. Have you ever looked down on someone because you thought your religious views were superior?

Never. Respect begets respect.

D. Would you rather know everything the universe has to offer but in exchange lose all emotions or remain the way you are now?

Remain the way I am now. 

E. If you could live and be healthy without sleeping or eating/drinking, which would you cut out of your life?

Hmm could be sleeping, so I could eat and drink all night. 😛

F. If you could take on the exact body and form of anyone else on Earth, who would it be?

No one, just the same body as I have now. No more adjustments, no more disappointments, since I’m used to it.

G. Would you rather burn or freeze to death?

Freeze to death.

H. If it meant it would solve all world hunger, war, disease and bigotry, would you spend the rest of eternity in Hell?

No, I don’t believe in Hell, nor had been there.

I. Was the first crush in your life something you had or something someone had on you?

Hmm something I had. I was 6 that time.

J. Could you live without having sex ever (again) in exchange for eternal youth?

Eternal youth. I can always touch myself anyways. LOL

K. Have you ever watched a full length pornographic movie?

I did, character’s name is Liza.

L. The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

The Beatles.

M. If you could have the ability to manipulate matter or energy, which would you choose?

Matter.

N. What was the worst nightmare you ever had?

End of days kind of scenes.

O. Would you rather spend one year with your one true love just to never see them again or the rest of your life with second best?

One year with one true love. I never settle for anything less.

P. All the sequels/remakes/adaptations/rip-offs in movies nowadays, good or bad?

Bad. I hate remakes, it means lack of creative inputs so I will just redo the old ones.

Q. Would you rather be dirt poor and emotionally fulfilled in life or be rich beyond imagination and emotionally dissatisfied for life?

Poor and emotionally fulfilled. I can always find ways to survive, being emotionally happy is something I cannot find elsewhere, nor get an alternative.

R. Do you have any (secret) feelings of bigotry to any group of people?

Yes to religious bigots. Kayo na ang maliligtas! (Only your group will be saved)

S. Would you rather be the only person in the world that can read minds or have everyone else in the world be able to read minds except for your own?

Domination so its the first one. But if I want a chaotic world, then that’s the second option.

T. If everyone in the world would automatically only know one language, which language would you choose?

Body language where kisses and hugs can suffice.

U. If you were old enough and not in a situation where it would be inappropriate, would you sleep with one of your (past) school teachers/professors?

Big yes!

V. A world without religion, good, bad, neutral?

A world without religion is close to impossible, people will worship stones, woods or anything. I think its bad.

W. The men’s rights movement, legitimate cause or laughable, and why?

The fact that there is such thing as men’s rights movement, could mean that something is not polished on our current gender rights. So their claim is legitimate, people regardless of gender, must be equal in all aspects.

X. You can eliminate one of your five senses to substantially strengthen the others, which one and would you do it?

Strengthen sense of sight, eliminate sense of smell. I had a phase wherein I always get colds, and felt that my nose isn’t working anymore, so yeah I’m trained for it. 😛

Y. Do looks mean anything to you? Don’t lie, could you fall in love with someone you thought was ugly?

Liking someone who is not my type, sure. Waking up everyday in bed, with that someone — No. I should have fallen in love that much with that guy before it happens.

Z. Can you understand the mindset and logic used by the opposite spiritual opinion? Example: an atheist understanding the belief in a higher power and vice versa.

I believe I can. We can control the way we think, and the things we believe in, even for a moment.

Bike sensation

This video made me want biking again. 🙂

Good health has been a struggle for me this year, I feel being sick like every week, and I don’t know why. I must go back to my exercise routine like I used to. Perhaps it would give me more stamina, muscle development and cardio-vascular fitness. I am looking forward for my new folding bike this month. Who says urban biking can’t be stylish? 😀

I want!

Of course if you have a budget of $2000 for a pretty decent road bike, get Tern Verge X30 folding bike. For cheaper folding bikes but performs pretty well, Dahon or Shimano will do, and I’ll be getting the latter for now. Who wants to join me in this road adventure? 😀

Busy? Nah just lazy!

Yes this post had declared my “National Lazy week” — I’ve been with a lot of things but failed to update this blog…sorry about that. Uhmm let me start by saying that my cybercrime vigilance had prevailed. Yey, worth the long post I wrote. The bogus seller account has been suspended after I reported it to the admins, well that’s the least I can do.

Secondly, the world followed the finale of American Idol, the results has been the global trending in social networking sites, but Jessica Sanchez with Jennifer Holliday duet, set the highlight of the night. What I like about that performance is the passion for singing of these two iconic stars, or soon to be for Jessica, and the way they deliver it, it is just so EPIC! And if you terribly missed it, you can check this video:

Filipinos had supported Jessica Sanchez all the way out, and wished to take home the crown. Having Philip Philips take that number 1 spot, its ok for me too, he deserved it, and this chap reminded me of Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20, he has this swagger, unique voice where he could fit into alternative rock or country pop rock. Just the mere fact that both of them ended up in that top 2 slots, is already a winning spot. Jessica has been compared to Jasmin Trias, which I find ridiculously funny, just because the latter is not powerful enough for me and must not be compared to Jessica’s talent. (peace!)

Oh also watched PBA, its been years since the last time I watched live.

Lastly, I’ve been eyeing for an Android phone this time, I am still and will always be an IOS fanatic, but I wanna try something new. It is the feeling of learning new stuff excites me, and mind you I don’t read instructions hehehe, I learned my gadgets thru navigation. 🙂 (kinesthetic!)

Cybercrime vigilant

Warning: Investigative mode, this is a long post. 🙂

Yes I am a cybercrime vigilant, it’s innate of me to go after (or at least pester) those whom I find leery and victimizing many people for the sake of money or just the thought of evil power. If they come close within my perimeter, meaning myself, family, friends, relatives or officemates, I will find ways for a sweet skirmish. (not physical assault, but other means to do so. :-P) I must change my career to cybercrime investigative.

As I was scouting for the latest tablets and mobile phones, (planning to buy one), I came across this advertisement in Sulit (which is now removed by the seller) offering brand new gadgets, not very low ridiculous offer, but competitive compared with mall stores. This seller has only 1 positive feedback score in Sulit. So for first-timers in the buy and sell arena, this could be a good catch. The seller invites people to check her Facebook profile with “testimonials” from the buyers, with DTI certificate and SSS or philhealth IDs, and the seller even mentioned that she is God fearing who believes in Karma. (referring to two different religious beliefs?) So at first fast glance, this would make anyone think that she could be a legit seller. I even message her in Facebook asking for the price list and some technical inquiries, days had gone, no reply from her, which is not very common for legitimate online sellers I’ve met from the past. As I was staring on her Facebook page, for whatever reason, I noticed some quirky patterns:

1. The name of the store is different from the bank details or government ID she provided.

Store name = Maribel Maris Austria

ID name = Maribel Yazon Adriano

2. The address given is in Rapu Rapu, Albay which says “beside La Fa yette mining, 2nd floor)” — never thought that mining field would have a mall, a building or an established “2nd floor.”

3. I randomly checked the profile pages of those who had given the seller positive testimonials, are seemingly new Facebook users, based on the activity and joined dates.

4. Had seen 2 or 3 users who are using @ymail.com email address. The rest had not revealed their email addresses.

5. The seller Facebook timeline wall is closed. Legit sellers welcome buyers, hence the wall must be set to “open.” Setting to close has the notion that you are hiding something, or some sort, limiting the communication between the buyer and seller only. (how do I freaking ask her, other than private message)

6. Maris Gadget Austria Facebook store page got 300 Likes, she must be that famous and therefore looks legit for some, but I am not buying it. It could be 300 more facebook FAKE profiles.

And so I enable my “Google sense” (oopps just made that up, sounding great to me eh?) where I search for the seller name and add “scam” at the end. Shocking as it may sound, (I’m a bit phlegmatic sometimes) this seller is a popular scammer/swindler! — Just so you can warn your family and friends, below are the details of this Maribel Maris Austria scammer!

Scambook

It’s a relief saving myself from this scammer, but I am saddened to know that there are many people who had been fooled. No one knows if this is a guy or a girl, it would drive me nuts if she is. The victims had reported to NBI, and the agency is in coordination with Globe, because apparently this scam artist is using Gcash in requesting for payment. I personally think there’s a loophole on Gcash system upon money withdrawal, because bogus sellers are continuously growing in numbers.

It would be difficult if buyers will doubt our hard earned real seller positive feedback, just because scammers are using it as instrument in tricking buyers. (involving Facebook too) As buyers, we must be vigilant and protect our resources, if you have the means to go to the mall stores, or conduct a meetup with the online sellers, in that way you are more secured than Gcash-shipping method. Most often bogus sellers pretend to use LBC shipment (LBC online tracking is a bit delay), and will convince you that its on the system, just not yet on the website…then after that you can no longer contact the seller number. In this regard, I have done which I think is best for now, providing negative feedback to the Sulit Id that the scammer Maribel Maris Austria had used, with the hopes that I’m the last person looking at her advertisement. Yes he/she will be creating a new account, but would take his/her time to come up again with fake Facebook details and associate with the fake Sulit account. I somehow delayed her plans in “operation Sulit.” I will leave the entrapment operation to the police or NBI, sana di sila abutin ng pagputi ng buhok nila.

Not that I am amazed, but these scam artists have the audacity and tremendous fortitude to repetitively do these fraudulent activities. After few months time, they have changed names, numbers or gimicks to execute what they have in mind. And I think, they just wanted to be discovered/caught, they are enjoying the chasing part, and perhaps at this point in their lives, they never felt loved. I pity the victims, I am placing the scammer to malevolence, and justice will still prevail.

Do you have any scam stories to share?

Four Temperaments

The best way to compete with yourself is to know thy inner you. — No worries, this is not a quote of some famous person, I invented it. 🙂 I took this four temperaments personality test, and it boiled down to this realization that I am possibly…. the Choleric type.  (after taking another personality test with same result)

The choleric temperament is fundamentally ambitious and leader-like. They have a lot of aggression, energy, and/or passion, and try to instill it in others. They can dominate people of other temperaments, especially phlegmatic types. Many great charismatic military and political figures were choleric. They like to be in charge of everything. However, cholerics also tend to be either highly disorganized or highly organized. They do not have in-between setups, only one extreme to another. As well as being leader-like and assertive, cholerics also fall into deep and sudden depression. Essentially, they are very much prone to mood swings.  The choleric possesses a sharp, keen intellect and will combine with great enthusiasm. Very successful in his/her profession, working diligently in spite of obstacles. Choleric are brief, precise, and sure in their speech.

Choleric women are very rare, but strangely enough are very popular people that, quite simply, have very different ways of dealing with issues. They can and do frustrate their partners by being unavailable, but this is exactly what makes them so desirable. They wouldn’t make mistake most other women do, for example, when they smother their partners with love eventually repelling them.

If it meant above as rare just like precious gems, then so be it, hahahh. I’d like to believe that I am the leader type, strong willed and always craving for success, or perhaps influential to others. (even a bit of these, is good enough) I can be bossy to my siblings, impatient to some situations and enjoy debates or argumentative remarks.  Oh yeah I am stubborn and has an opinion on everything. Isn’t it funny slash amazing sometimes, that we get to nod on some information out of this so-called “personality tests?” I remember taking a Mensa exam years ago, to measure my IQ and if I was a part of the top 20% smart asses of this planet, it was bloody hard. Now you have the idea why I’m taking any form of self tests — finding FUN out of it, somehow.

I know that there is no better or worse personality type, it is just a matter of discovering our personality tendencies. What’s yours?

Redunculous!

It’s been a heck of weeks and weeks, and forgive me my beloved blog for intentionally not posting anything here. For those who had been curious as to where I’ve been….

I’m pretty sure that ALL OF US, at one or too many points in our lives, had wandered…I’m at the verge of returning back to my reality. It’s a great deal of discernment that I am spending my time and resources on the not-so-important-things to cover up my delinquent life escapes. (career, relationships, etc) It is never too late to start all over again, and not too silly to do what’s right. 🙂

But who’s really to tell what’s right and wrong in our lives? How about you, what’s your recent self awakening moments?
