Krispy Kreme Mania

0 say something

Are you a donut addict? Or Krispy kreme addict?

One of my dear friend, Gerard, sent me a message from Facebook that I am Glazed!!! At first I really don't have any idea what it means. I immediately read his message and it says that you have to registered first before you can claim your free Chocolate Glazed donut and their signature coffee. I was very hesitant at first to fill-up the registration page but i still signed-in. After a few second, i got an email from Krispy kreme that i can claim my free donut together with their signature coffee not later than April 30, 2009.

I still don't believe on freebies, so I message my friend, if this thing is for real and he said that he already claimed his donut yesterday.

Oh my!!! I will claim mine on Monday, hahaha!!!

So, if you're a donut addict. I'm posting a link below for you to have your own donut just for free!!! Hurry, the promo period will last until April 30 only!!!

Sharing some old thoughts

0 say something

I really love reading emails sent by my friends everyday and it really starts my day right. This email was sent by my friend Tinah, who never fails to send inspirational emails like these. And i would like to share the same to my blogger friends or to anyone who drops by my site.

George Carlin's Views on Ageing

George Carlin @ age 102

Do you realise that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about ageing that you think in fractions.

'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key

You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

'How old are you?' 'I'm gonna be 16!' You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life .... .. You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away.. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80's and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there Into the 90s, you start going backwards; 'I Was JUST 92.'

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. 'I'm 100 and a half!'
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them'

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9.. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next country; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

A Small Touching Story

0 say something

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what it is?" replied the man.
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.
SON: "I just want to know.. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour."
SON: "Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down.
SON: "Daddy, may I please borrow $10.00 ?"

The father was furious, "If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior."

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $10..00 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.

"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier" said the man."It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $10.00 you asked for."The little boy sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you daddy!" He yelled.

Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

"Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the father grumbled."Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied."Daddy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?

Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life.. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.

Do remember to share that $20.00 worth of your time with someone you love.If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days.But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

I'm back!!!!

0 say something

I wasn't able to visit my site for four days, for I have a super busy weekend. My mom and I, and the rest of Pacita parishioners went to Ilocos region for our Visita Iglesia held by our parish church last March 29-31 (am off from work for two days..yipeee!) I really miss blogging and blog hopping as well. So sad how i wish i had my own laptop (huhuhu). I'm taking into consideration in adding it to my "must haves" list but i really don't know much about pc stuffs. But anyway, i'd really like to share some of my latest events but i really don't have time for now, maybe some other day. I have so many reports to finish since we're now dealing with our project close-out. So i need to rush things to meet the deadlines. Actually, it's our lunchbreak while writing this one (lol). But i promised as soon as am free, i'll share wih you my Ilocos trip, i'll post some photos, am sure you'll love 'em! And Dana's recognition day in school. She got 5 awards plus a trophy for being "Best in conduct". Am a proud mom!!! Gotta go.
