Music Monday#5: Insomnia

Posted by The Queen Bee at Monday, June 22, 2009 3 comments
It's definitely one of the worse condition that I hope I won't be experiencing ever again. Being insomniac is such a terrible state to be in because with it comes countless other unpleasant feelings like discomfort, grumpiness and mood swings to name a few.

So how does one acquire insomnia? Generally, it could be a symptom to some serious illness but one interesting thing that cause people to toss and turn is a broken heart. Nursing a broken heart can really make one lose sleep and that's only making matters even worse because you only not lose your love but end up looking ugly. Insomnia is disgusting but not the one that Craig David has. I uber love this song so much that I always listen to it while driving to the office every morning. You'll lose some sleep over this.

So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

It's funny how technology can make life complicated. One whole day of being disconnected from cyberspace was just very excruciating. Yesterday felt like I lost a limb when my internet connection was down.

Over-acting I guess, but that's how it felt. Thank God, it's back.

I had a hard time looking for an entry for this week's theme. I suppose this one would pass for anyway, a snapshot of chains at People's Park to keep away little children from falling off the pond. This photo was taken by my sister Jenny while we were doing some photo walk for her camera club.

The Best in Web Hosting

Posted by The Queen Bee at Friday, June 12, 2009 0 comments
If you've been blogging for quite some time like me, chances are, you might already be looking for a good web site hosting service for your blog. There are several things that professional web hosting could do compared to obtaining free hosting services for blogs. Among the benefits of having one's blog hosted by a professional web hosting service provider is a faster connection and more bandwidth which means being able to do more with your blog.

Personally, my other blog which is hosted on a free blogging platform can be excruciating at times because of the limited bandwidth they offer. Of course, I understand because it's for free anyway. But it restrains me when it comes to sharing more photos with my readers. How frustrating can that be?

Now that the decision has been made to go for a professional web hosting service, then the next question would be, where to get it. I suggest that you first go to because they provide reviews of different web hosting providers and provides readers with a list of the Best Web Hosts every year. I guess that would provide bloggers the best help they need when choosing which web hosting service to get. I believe that each one of have different considerations in mind when making a choice. It could be that we want a cheap but reliable web hosting or an unlimited web hosting service that we are looking. Whatever it may be, Web Hosting Geeks has it covered. I guess the name speaks for itself.

Samsung Pixon 12, I Want!

Posted by The Queen Bee at Friday, June 12, 2009 0 comments
I guess anyone who knows is eagerly waiting for the Samsung Pixon 12 mega pixel camera phone to be out in the market. I do and I wish to have one. It has two of the things that I always look for in a phone, a camera and an FM radio and Samsung Pixon (M8910) is much much more than that.

The Pixon 12 boasts of a fast shutter speed and quick browsing of photos, hmm.. God's gift to camwhores which I am close to becoming. Hahaha!! This makes me drool...

(credit: engadget)
Here's more interesting stuffs about the Samsung Pixon 12 (M8910):

  • a 3.1 inch AMOLED Touch Screen
  • a fast-saving feature
  • a 28mm wide-angle lens
  • HSPA and Wifi for instant uploads to Facebook or Flickr
  • up to 16GB microSD expansion
Can't wait to start some shooting frenzy. News has it that Samsung Pixon 12 will be out in Europe this month and around August in other regions.

Davao Notes and Snapshots is Revived and Refurbished

Posted by The Queen Bee at Thursday, June 11, 2009 0 comments
I am talking about my other blog, Davao Notes and Snapshots which hasn't been getting much love from me since its inception into the blogging world. Well, finally after 48 years of hiatus and loss of inspiration, I took time to sit down and work on it. For a start, I have jazzed it up with a new look and feel.

I am a proud daughter of Davao and so naturally, I boast of everything that Davao is. What better way to let the world know how lovely this part of the world is but by blogging about it, right? That's precisely the reason why Davao Notes and Snapshots is here to stay, I'm definitely back and blogging about Davao again.

How do you find its new look? Comments anyone?

Photo Hunt #20: Advertisement

Posted by The Queen Bee at Saturday, June 06, 2009 17 comments

Thank God it's Saturday! As usual, time for another Photo Hunt. This week's theme is Advertisement and luckily I have several photos to choose from in my files. I have chosen a photo of Blugre's mug.

Bluegre is one of my favorite homegrown coffee shops here in Davao. I am lucky to have one near our workplace but just yesterday, I saw that they were temporarily closing for renovation. I'm a little sad because I will be missing my favorite durian cappuccino but also excited at the same time because I can't wait to see the new place.

No objections to this one but it sounds funny that acceptance of the award is a must.

I am honored to pass this on to these equally lovely blogs.

The One Who Got Away

Posted by The Queen Bee at Wednesday, June 03, 2009 0 comments
I spotted this one in Tin-tin's notes in Facebook and thought of sharing it with you. I was inspired by this and I hope after reading this, it will change your life too.

dedicated to all my single, not-so-single, married, afraid-to-commit-coward-to-admit, bitter, miserable, lonely, happy, crazy, looking, mingling, waiting in vain friends. (copied from jett)

In your life, you'll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something.. There's the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you're with and the one that got away..

Who is the one that got away? I guess its that person with whom everything was great, everything was perfect but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn't fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a long time partner that is, does not merely lie in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you're not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn't matter who you're with, it just doesn't work!! Small problems become big; incosequentials become dealbreakers simply because you're not ready and it shows. Its not that you and the person you're with are not good; its just that its not yet right and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you're ready. You really are. And when this happens you'll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it will work because you're ready. It'll work because it's the right time and you'll make it work. And it'll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you're finally making sense of things and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you've become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there's no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you're single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn't matter. All you know is that you've changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.

You'll think about them because you'll wonder "what if they were here today?" you'll wonder, "what if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?" the biggest "What if" you'll have in your life.

If youre married, you'll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think you'e marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you're mature enough to relaize that you're already with the one you're with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will surely strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you'll think about him/her evry so often, but its alright. Its never nice to live with a "might have been" but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who's already married. In which case it's the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you're old and gray and reminiscing.

But if neither of that is the case, then its different. What do you do if it's not yet too late? Simple.. Find him. Find her. Because the very existence of a "one that got away" means that you'll always wonder, what if you got that one?

Ask him out to coffee, ask her out to a movie, it doesn't matter if you've dropped in from out of nowhere. You'd be surprised, you just might be "the one that got away" as well as for the person who is you "the one that got away". You might drop in form nowhere and it wont make a difference. If the timing is finally right, it'll all just fall into place somehow and you know, im thinking, it would be a great feeling, in the end, to be able to say to someone

"hey, you're the one that almost got away.."
