My Google Ads are now running

Posted by The Queen Bee at Sunday, September 19, 2010 1 comments
The long wait is over, the long overdue Google pin has finally landed on my soil after several requests.  I didn't know what's wrong with our home address that I have been asking for a new pin twice but didn't arrive until I changed the address to my workplace.  Thanks Google but I'd be happier if you can give me my page rank back. Weeeh..

You Are a Beloved Friend




You are a very popular person. People can always find something about you to like.

You are friendly and approachable. It's easy to feel comfortable around you.

You are lively, playful, and sweet. But you are also substantial too.

No matter what the situation is, you are good company... and the ideal best friend.

Photo Hunt #47: Framed

Posted by The Queen Bee at Sunday, August 29, 2010 2 comments

For this week's theme, I cannot think of anything more fitting than this from among the stock of photos that I have. A scene from the NAIA terminal 3 that I caught on cam while waiting for my sister to fetch us.  Airports are a great place to do people-watching because you get to see so many people from all walks of life, from different nationality, different culture and race.  It's also interesting to take note of people's fashion statements because it's like reading different personalities.  Bumping into someone popular is another thing.  

Now looking at this picture just makes my feet itch in an instant.  I can't wait for my next travel adventure! But for the meantime, here's my entry to:

August, in a nutshell

Posted by The Queen Bee at Sunday, August 29, 2010 0 comments
Two more days and we will be ushered to the last quarter of the year 2010.  After looking at my archives, I was somehow feeling remorseful for not having posted much the past two months despite a pool of good things to share and blog about.  I have traveled twice and have been to at least one place that I have never been to in my whole existence.  But, time had passed by so swiftly and we can no longer bring it back so let me just recount the things that happened in August.

Flicks we saw this Month:



Salt Movie Poster
SALT -  Of course, we are huge Angelina fanatics and action movie addicts rolled into one so when Salt was showing, we vowed never to miss it on the silver screen.  It was an added bonus that this movie was shown in the Red Carpet Cinema in Gaisano Mall, one of the two cinemas(the other one is the 3D) that has lounge chairs.  Watching the movie was a real heavenly experience since we're so comfortable and it's the best viewing experience ever since aside from the comfort, you don't have to contend with rude and uncultured seatmates.  Correct me if I am mistaken but I heard in the news that G-Mall has the first cinemas with lounge chairs in the whole Philippines.  Back to the movie, it was excellent and there was never a dull moment.  I had to postpone going to the rest room until the end of the movie just so I wouldn't miss a single thing.

The Expendables movie poster banner

THE EXPENDABLES - When we were growing up, we never missed a single Stallone movie back then. We we crazy about Rambo and Rocky, I guess that's how kids are. If there is one genetic thing that all of us acquired from our parents, it would be  our parents' love for movies particularly action-packed flicks that is readily noticeable.  Since the trailer of this movie was shown, my dad had been counting the days until this will be shown.  I wasn't that happy with this movie and I kinda expected it from the very beginning because of the all-star casting.  True enough, but a little better than Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Pulp Fiction.

                                                                        ***********

Those movies highlight my weekends in August, my weekends are always about going to church, a visit to Mom's tomb and a movie.  Aside from that, there were a lot of things happening like the major, major one would be the Kadayawan Festival which I sadly missed the highlights, shame on me! The heat was just so sore and I couldn't bear that otherwise, I had to compromise my health.  Never mind, I was able to sneak at the Mindanao Trade Expo in Central Bank on its last day though.  The past week was a roller coaster ride of emotions ranging from irritation with how the Manila Bus Hostage Crisis ended, to grief for the loss of lives, the surge of tension and excitement the day after with our Venus Raj competing in the Miss Universe 2010 and frustration  right after that question and answer which many thought cost her the crown.  It was a stressful week for Filipinos really.  I hope the coming weeks will be about good news.

Photo Hunt#46: Numerical

Posted by The Queen Bee at Saturday, August 21, 2010 4 comments

It's hard to look for something that gives a different approach to this week's theme of numerical so I guess there's no other way but to show it in numbers.  It's a snap of my favorite magazine called Entrepreneur which circulates monthly.  I get good insights here with regards to setting up and running a business plus I get inspiration from real people who started out small then eventually made it big in their chosen endeavor.  I really dream of owning a business one day so as early as now, I try to read and absorb every little thing about it so I can put them to use when that day comes.

This is my entry for this week's edition of Photo Hunt.

Photo Hunt #45: Colorful

This is just one among the eye-catching lamp posts in Plaza Heneral Santos in General Santos City. On our free night during our company's national sports fest, we took time to stroll around the park just across our hotel and we were glad we did because we instantly had a photo walk that night when we saw several interesting subjects around the park to be photographed.

These colorful lights deserve to be in this week's entry to Photo Hunt's search for colorful. See other colorful photos over at :

Blogging and Grammar

Posted by The Queen Bee at Friday, August 06, 2010 2 comments
This is one of the few times that I have been hopping from blog to blog to drop Entrecards and read interesting posts. There are particular blogs that I do visit regularly because I find them interesting and the posts are well-written which is undoubtedly the result of thoughts that are nicely put together. I wish there were more of these blogs here in blogosphere because honestly, there are more of those that are simply gibberish .

Offline, I admit to be too critical about people committing grammatical errors just like most of the people in my sphere. That is why we are careful about the things that we say and when we hear somebody say something that's not grammatically correct, we immediately correct that person if we feel that he or she is open to it since there are those who take that in a bad light too. And this is what I notice about some bloggers. I admire those bloggers who welcome corrections and comments and take them positively because these are the real people who are intelligent enough to take constructive criticisms which could help them improve their writing skills.

Blogging can be quite tedious for those who really care about writing good posts. One of the direct measures by which we can determine whether a post is good or not is grammar usage and spelling. I admit that I am guilty of this too because more often than not, I rush in doing my posts and I seldom find the inspiration to write a really good post. In short, I am a lazy blogger and that is why I don't blog regularly.

I am not a good writer but at least, I want to try to make good posts because I believe bloggers owe it to their readers. When somebody reads my post, I want to make them feel that it's worth their time.

Wednesday Wickedness #1: Chelsea Clinton

Posted by The Queen Bee at Wednesday, August 04, 2010 2 comments

Chelsea Clinton

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Chelsea Clinton. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. “I think with our problems with hopelessness and cynicism that [the solution] ultimately has to come from the young people themselves. We've got to realize we are the future and we make of our future what we make of it, and ultimately we have to do it for ourselves.” If you had a wish for your future, what would it be? :: I wish for a more comfortable and happy life and a better and safer world to live in.

2. “We proved we could be safe and secure at home, and still have more allies and friends in the world.” Tell us about a couple of your closest friends. ::I am an exclusive type of person so my closest friends are those whom I have been friends with from way back when.

3. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” What is the most that you have ever lost? ::I lost my mom to cancer and I feel that it's something that a lot of people had to fight these days so I wish that there will be a cure for this disease.

4. “We grieve for the loss of life, ... I ask you to redouble your resolve and help your neighbors.” What was the last thing that you have done to help a neighbor? ::I gave my own little share in helping build our chapel.

5. “I think they were interested in it.” What have you done to help someone because of a shared interest? :: This is something that I need to think real hard about, so I'll pass.

6. “How we use these surpluses in this moment of prosperity will determine America's future for decades to come. Nothing will more surely determine it than making the right choices…” What do you think the priorities of the United States really should be? :: I am not from the US so my concerns are more focused on my country's needs.

7. “For all the tornadoes Arkansas has, and the ones that have hit around Little Rock, we never had one just basically come down Main Street.” What was the last severe weather situation that you and your neighbors endured? ::We are very fortunate to be blessed with good topography that's why we rarely experience bad weather here in Davao. If ever we do, the most prevalent problem would be flood caused by heavy rains.

8. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” Who among the folks you consider family or friends has lost the most? ::The ones I can immediately think of are those who were affected by typhoon Ondoy last year.

9. “I Do.” If you’ve been married what you’re your thoughts when you said that? Or if not, what would you hope them to be?” ::That it's going to be the best decision that I will be making in my whole life.

10. "I'm a big health-food freak and a vegetarian devotee." Have you or are you a vegetarian? Thoughts? ::I am a semi-vegetarian since my diet mainly consists of veggies but I still do eat meat.

Max II turns One!

Posted by The Queen Bee at Tuesday, August 03, 2010 0 comments


My handsome chocolate labrador retriever is celebrating his first birthday today. It was also a great birthday gift that we finally got his registration certificate last Saturday. It was amusing to learn about Max's lineage and the most interesting about it is the fact that he came from a breed of champions.

It wasn't easy raising a dog as it was like raising a child of your own. Max's early months was something that was very crucial because I once thought I would lose him when he suffered from a bacterial infection when he was 3 months old. Thank God that he was able to survive and thanks to his good doctor. Max is such a stubborn but a sweet dog despite the fierce appearance. We've been trying to teach him a trick or two and we're happy that he's able to recognize some commands already. Wish there were more Max's in the world that never fails to make a sad day turn bright. Happy Birthday Max!

Sunday Stealing: The 28 Questions Meme

Posted by The Queen Bee at Saturday, July 31, 2010 3 comments


Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Keerawa of the blog named We All Live Lives of Quiet Fantasy. Keerawa explains that he ripped it from Frack 412. (Those LJ bloggers do have interesting names.) But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time.

This aptly describes this week's Photo Hunt theme, Public because this is the administration building of People's Park, Davao City's beautiful public park. When you visit Davao City for the first time, we recommend that you visit People's Park and have your pictures taken under the huge Philippine Eagle sculpture or alongside the beautiful sculptures of Kublai Millan. The park is also a great place for people-watching or just enjoying a relaxing view of nature amidst the hustle and bustle of the city life.

A long lunch at Sonya's Garden

Posted by The Queen Bee at Wednesday, July 28, 2010 1 comments
A few days ago, I posted an entry to Photo Hunt that features Sonya's Garden in Alfonso, Cavite. We've been hearing about Sonya's and there has been so much hype about it so when we got the chance to go to Tagaytay, we decided to have lunch at Sonya's Garden. It turned out to be the lightest and the healthiest yet the longest lunch I've had in my entire life. This is so because they served the food course by course which we enjoyed with a mixture of fun stories of good old friends who have not seen one another for a very long time.

Guests are free to dress their salads with the many choices of toppings they have. There were too many of them so I had a great time eating my salad greens. The main course for that day's lunch set was pasta and like the salad, guests can also choose whether they'd want spaghetti or carbonara or they can have both with two kinds of sauces and toppings, the sun dried tomato sauce or the chicken cream sauce. I don't like white sauce so I went for the sun dried tomato sauce and it tasted so good.



.








For desert, we were served with Banana rolls with sesame and jackfruit, Glazed sweet potato and a homemade chocolate cake. Now don't be too awed with the classy sound of those because they are simply turon and camote. To cap our long lunch, we had a good relaxing cup of tarragon tea.





It wasn't exactly the best lunch we had and to be honest, the place fell short of our expectations. It turned out that there was too much hype about it and as Mass Comm graduates, we should have know better. Nevertheless, that was one of the best lunch I have had in years because of the company I had that day. True friends are really priceless and no matter how long time keeps you away and no matter how far distance separates you, you always pick up where you left off.

There's a great new way for movie lovers to make each night an enjoyable movie marathon night because those movies on demand can now be seen on Foxtel's World Movies Channel. Skip through the hassles and the expensive habit of buying those movies on DVD because you can watch them on your favorite Movie channel anyway.

This is such great news for movie lovers like me who can't last a day without seeing a film on TV. I can no longer remember how many movies I have seen in my entire life and some of them, I can no longer remember but one thing remains the same, my love for movies. Since good news are meant to be shared, I am sharing this great opportunity to make your nights entertaining with the films on World Movies Channel. You'll surely going to thank me for this.

Facebook ruined my night

Posted by The Queen Bee at Thursday, June 24, 2010 0 comments
Got home early tonight but instead of having been able to accomplish the things that I originally intended to do, I got tempted to check my Facebook account again then got hooked and lasted three hours doing nothing but posting silly comments and shout outs and that is so uncharacteristic of me because I rarely log on to Facebook.

Instead of doing new posts, I wasted three hours of my time browsing pictures and posts of old friends but mostly of friends whom I spent the whole day at work with. Now, isn't that silly? I swear, I will never get hook on Facebook so before I do, this has got to stop! I just logged out.

Weekend Flick: The A-Team

Posted by The Queen Bee at Sunday, June 20, 2010 0 comments

photo credit: wikipedia.org

My Dad has been wanting to watch the A-team since last week when we were in Manila but due to time constraints, we weren't able to squeeze it into our schedule. As his sole request for Father's day today, we watched the A-team at the VIP Cinema of Gaisano Mall. The A-team is not new to us especially that it used to be a popular T.V. show back in the 80's but I can't exactly remember the characters in the show though. I am glad that this year, we have seen re-hush of these movies from the past like Karate Kid and the A-Team.

Overall, the movie was entertaining and witty. It's a treat for those who like watching action-packed flicks rather than listening to conversations. The A-team is not your usual movie heroes because they are fugitives who were victims of the system that they belong to. In that premise, I can very well relate to the A-team. The system really sucks but because we are bound, so we don't have a choice. Dad was happy with the movie and we are happy too that he is.
