Happy Birthday America – July 4, 2008 – Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular

7 07 2008

It’s been long since I last blogged. I just got very busy migrating to another country, getting to know new friends and enjoy places. I hope I can make time again to write write write about my experience both about life and the new technology stuff I am working on. I just have a lot to write about but can’t find the time now. I hope I can be back soon. πŸ™‚

Anyways I want to make this quick post about the July 4th Fireworks I enjoyed a lot here in Boston Massachusetts. We had a nice view of it and the fireworks is indeed very fanta-bulous. I just want to share these with you. Make sure you turn on your volume as the fireworks are synchronized with the fireworks. I hope you enjoy it like I did. Happy Birthday America!!! πŸ™‚

Happy New Year 2008

4 01 2008

Just got back to work yesterday. This is already a bit late. Happy New Year guys.

To start the year, just found out that Microsoft Singapore is offering some free certifications for the community user groups. To those interested, dont miss this opportunity. Check this link out.

I am still finishing reading the book Way of the Turtle: The Secret Methods that Turned Ordinary People into Legendary Traders. I think I have different main priorities and goals for this year, and getting a certification is just not it yet. Well since this is free I’ll just decide if I’m going to take this promotion after I finish reading the book.

Here is the book to those interested:





A Joke about a job in consulting

19 10 2007

I just really like it that I thought I need to share it. Enjoy! πŸ˜€

β—Š One day the manager calls the consultant to talk about the time sheet report…

Manager: You charged us on Wednesday for 19 hours, but you were here for only about 9 hours on Wednesday.

Consultant: Well, of course. Look, it is very detailed. I was here from 9:00 to 18:00, right?

Manager: Right.

Consultant: And because we left without a good solution, I kept thinking about it in the car, and when I walked the dog. You see, it is the entries for 18:00 – 19:30 and 20:00 – 20:45. From 19:30 – 20:00 I had dinner, I didn’t charge you for that.

Manager: Nice of you. And the other 8 hours? 22:00 – 06:00 ?

Consultant: Well,when I walked the dog, I finally had a vision, everything came together in a moment of brilliance, and I could see the solution in my head. All I had to do is connect some little pieces and it would work.

Manager: Oh, so you did an all nighter?

Consultant: Ha? Of course not. I went home thinking about the idea, and then I went to bed and slept on it for 8 hours. β—Š

Music Tripping: Bisrock songs through imeem!!!

22 09 2007

Hastang lingawa nako! Nga naa di ay ing-ani nga Bisrock songs diri sa internet! Makapa wala ug mingaw ba. Lingaw kaayo ang mga messages sa kanta. Hehehe πŸ˜€

Akong mga paborits kay ang:

Simply Filemon – Inday
1107- Charing
1107- Utot

Hala suwayi ninyo ug paminaw.

Translation: What excitement got into me! Didn’t know there are such Bisrock songs here in the internet! Just hearing these songs, can ease homesickness and loneliness. The message of the songs are really amusing and fun. Hehehe πŸ˜€

The list is one of my favorites. Check it out! πŸ˜€

Here it is embedded for your easy access. (Apologies. I don’t know what is the problem with wordpress editor. But it is not allowing me to embed it. Just access it thru this link.)

By the way these songs are on my local dialect Bisaya (commonly used in Central & Southern part of the Philippines). For a brief background, here is wikipedia for you: Cebuano Language Wikipedia. But if you are bisaya like me, read this bisaya version of it instead. Hehehe πŸ˜€





Smiley Anniversary; Mother’s smile

19 09 2007

Digital β€˜smiley face’ turns 25

Smiley just got 25 or should it be 24? Whatever it is. The symbol : – ) that gave made us smile and put emotions into text speak celebrates its anniversary.

Thinking about smiles and smileys. I can always remember the smile in my moms face. She’s got the smile that launched a thousand ships hehehe. She always wears her smile and justΒ being with her, you will forget all your problems for a moment. (Of course, you won’t forget all of it as you need to solve it first. Hehehe)

It’s her birthday yesterday! Too bad I cannot celebrate it with you and the family. As I am far. I’ll just make it up when I get home this December.

Happy Birthday to you mama. Love you. πŸ™‚

17 09 2007

I was busy reading this book. And suddenly got hungry.

My eyes also got weary and tired. Need to have a break.

Doesn’t it comes match with the book. See even Mr Dummy agrees. Hehehe πŸ˜€

Note: Got these images days back. Just got a chance to post it now. This is by the way the first For Dummies book of the series or what-cha-ma-call-it book that I have read. And it is so far so interesting and full of content.
