New Holiday Eye Glasses For Everyone!

I am a near-sighted person. So, I would usually stay within a closer distance to see clearly or else, everything is a blurry vision.

I had my first eyeglasses made before when I was high school and addicted to reading that even at dim light, I would still read pocket books.

But as I age, my eyeglasses don't work anymore. I had consulted optometrists to check on the usual eye strains and they would now say, the problem is due to my work. You see, I have been a teacher for more than a decade, and reading and computer programming have been routine works to me. So, I have a new set of eyeglasses again.

But recently, I learned how to drive a vehicle. So, my eye vision has become a problem. I was even hesitant to go through eye medical exam for my driver's license as I might fail. But, since I will get now my driver's license in the coming days, I have to get new eye-glasses that will protect me while driving but still wearing these glasses with style! That however can pose a problem.

The roads lately have been packed by heavy traffic because of the holiday season, making the road more dusty and difficult to drive. I am just so anxious that I don't drive much. So, good thing that Holiday frames are in that I can purchase them online. They have wide variety of stylish and quality frames that may start at $8.00. I have picked this:

These eyeglasses are of metal half- rim frame with polarized magnetic snap-on sun lens. I can just switch between sunglasses if I have to drive or to my reading glasses. Cool!!!!! This great site allows me to customize my order to meet my unique needs at very reasonable rates. Now, who can beat that?

One can order online through a credit or debit card. Their glasses are all of anti-scratch coating, and full ultraviolet protection and you can upgrade your glasses at very minimal rate. They can ship your ordered glasses within reasonable time. And you can order a number at a flat rate of $4.95. If you are dissatisfied, you can return your orders and get refunds. Wow, that is worth every penny, right?

Most of my family members are wearing eye glasses. I will sure ask them to check this site! Why don't you check this site too? You will sure be amazed.

A Merry Merry Christmas Everyone!

It is Christmas eve here in Gensan, and the road was fully packed. We closed our store very early today as we head home, knowing that we still have to cook for Noche Buena. My other sister who is in Masbate called us up, crying though as she is quite away from home. We are complete here, except my other sibling. We really miss her but come, this new year celebration, the rest of the family will be complete.

My cellphone is quite busy too, sending holiday greetings to friends and loved ones. Of course, I won't miss greeting my blog friends and readers!!!!

2 Days From Christmas Day

It shall be 2 days left before Christmas, and we are indeed pretty excited. I guess, it is not about receiving gifts but the fact that the family is around for this special occasion makes the day more fun and love-filled.

The kids in the house are as excited as the elders. Hahhahahah! My son had asked me to tell Santa what he would want for Christmas. I guess I have to court Santa pretty hard.Hahhahahha! I hope Santa won't be pissed off by the holiday rush now that everyone is buying gifts everywhere.

My mom is enthusiastic, she had the meat ready early this morning. I thought it was Christmas eve already.LOL! But, wishing every blogger, friend or not, a merry merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Parties Everywhere

We had a great day today as early morning, the store was flocked with teenagers. Indeed, we had great sales from party-goers.

In the afternoon, we too had our party. So, today, our work day is officially over. We just spent our party in the school lobby with the usual program of playing and singing. I had to leave early though as my son was all stubborn, driving every one crazy.

We still have our masteral classes though tomorrow and then, VACATION IS ON! HURRRRRRRRRRRAY!

How Does Christmas Affect You?

Reunions are Piling Up!

This is the very first year since I left to another city that I am home again. You can say a lot has changed. I started really reaching out to old friends and venturing on new experiences outside my comfort zones. Hahahhahaha! Sabi nila, I am a total LATE BLOOMER!!!

Now that holidays are coming nearer, get-togethers from high school and college among other things are set. I might as well keep my holiday weeks filled with these reunions.hahhahahah!!!! One other party that is too alluring to ignore is the Soccsargen bloggers, a community of bloggers from Region 12. This is a first since the success of MBS2. I shall of course tag with my sister and partner and my blog shirts.Hurray!!!!

At least, all these shall be my breathers from very exhausting work and sched!!! Cant wait to groove!!!

SCAM Money - Making Sites!

Apart from blogging, I tried other means to earn extra online just to maximize my time while I go online. So, in the course of my blog hopping, I tend to check affiliations of other bloggers to income-earning sites. You can say, I almost tried all. Hahhahaha!

But, what is so lucrative is this $100 paid-to-read emails. So, trusting I was that I subscribed. But, when I reached their minimum payout, I started inquiring more than once how I can get my payments but to no response at all. This indeed made me more doubtful of the site's legitimacy. So, I inquired online and simply got devastated that the I one I subscribed in among other things is a scam. Do check this site for the complete list. You too could be a victim!

Helping Your High School Students Love School

I had tried teaching in high school before for a semester and I could vividly remember how difficult it was to teach students. We tried various means to impart lessons. And, since I handled Computer Programming, I can say it was fun at the same time challenging, especially for slow learners or students with different learning styles. Classroom instruction is so conventional and predictable, that majority of the students get bored. I liked the challenge though but it was not indeed cut for me. So, I was moved back to collegiate teaching but I humbled myself for the courage, and enthusiasm of high school students for trying various strategies just to get the idea passed on to the students.

But what really help these students when they are at home or free from school? Reading books can be boring and draining to them. And then, I came across of Brightstorm, an online education website that help youngsters love their subjects at their own pacing and comfort.

I had the opportunity to Sign up for a free brightstorm acocunt as a teacher, just to try their courses and I got approved right away. I was given a promotional course of any subject that I liked, and I chose Geometry. I was quite amazed how the tutorials were designed such a very good tutorial course on practically almost every subject offered in high school. The teacher was so great, that I cant help but be focused on what he was teaching in Geometry. If my high school teacher only taught that subject the way that Brightstorm teacher did, I will sure get more than a 1!!!

The tutorial was cut into major topics of the subject, thereby focusing only on the core contents. This made the topic delivered in much fun, interesting and clearer way through real life and real time examples. It is truly impressive since youngsters now are more visuals than imaginative. Take it from me, I have been a teacher for more than a decade. So, you can Sign up for a free.

I am pretty sure your kids who despise high school or middle school will get the help they want without being embarrassed by focusing on the subjects they need greater help and boost. If my son shall reach middle school, I will indeed try this on him.

OMG! Classroom is in Davao

Unlike my usual weekends of heading to Koronadal City for my masteral classes, my entire class shall be heading off to Davao City this morning to join the FOSS for SME's. It is a half-day-open-source program, that is credited to our masteral class in IT.

We are however excited to be there but, the exhaustion shall be unbearable because of the 6-hour travel to -and- from Davao and GenSan City.

Tomorrow, we shall however report back to Koronadal for our other class. You can say, my weekend is not a week end. hahahahhahahah!!!! This is indeed my very busy life: teacher, student, blogger, designer, and ek. . . ek. . LOL!!!!

National Hero through Pacman Pacquiao

As I type this post, the entire GenSantos people, and the entire Filipinos are waiting for Pacquiao and dela Hoya's dream fight. My, we cant even go to our store, to man it. I was however felt obliged to finish my exam questionnaires as semestral tests will be given next week.

Picture taken from http://www.philstar.com

But as undercard fights are still on, I cant help but smile over the excitement of everyone and impatience here at home, except my son, who was adamant to watch his cartoons. Heheheheh!

Of course, as Generals, we are proud and will always be hopeful that our Pacman will sweep the boxing arena with graffiti's and all again. . . Crossing our fingers then. . . Funny that this is one of the rare occasions when almost ALLFilipinos unite for one cause and one person. hahahhahah!

My Best Friend's Loss

As I attended to my classes today, I was surprised to get an early message from one of my best friends in my old home. Her mother died of diabetes complications. It was indeed devastating as we have been friends since grade school. You can say, we are siblings.

We were very close before that each other's house had become home of the other. We were separated on several occasions by education and by families but those didnt hinder the friendship. We still keep in touch and bond whenever I get to see them in their place. Among my other 3 friends, she is closest to me. I am only disappointed that I cant be with her at this most difficult time. I only pray that she and her family will recover the loss soon and that my aunt, her mother, will eventually rest her soul and meet her Creator.

Christmas Holiday Reunions

This is what I like best in Christmas, REUNIONS! I wasn't much of a social person before, so I only had limited close buddies. But, then, things have changed, and so I am rocking my world beautifully.Hahhahahahha!

Of course, reunions of high school and college batchmates are already set up. Then there is the party of Socssargen bloggers which all excites bloggers here in Gensan. Gifts are added leisures but it is always the get-together that makes holidays or any occasion more appreciated and loved.

Do you agree?

Cleaning: Made Easy

I don't like cleaning my place but since it is the only home I have, I have to clean it or else, I end up triggering my allergy and my son's. But, it is always a difficult struggle to get rid of dust from window screens, cushions, beds and innermost closets.

We have purchased our very own vacuum cleaners, but they too were heavy and didn't last long. This only aggravated the conditions of our allergy, making us ill and uncomfortable. So, our house must be dust-free at all times, otherwise, we are regular customers of pharmacy, catering to our allergy medications.

Good thing, there are now vacuum cleaners bags belts filters brushrolls machines that can help solve our dust problems. This great store offers wide variety of vacuum cleaners, big and small, to suit our unique needs. And what is better to hear is that their machines are of reasonable rates. We can even order online with free shipment if we are in US and our purchases reach their minimum of $50 dollars. Now, we can even avail of their 10% discounts among all their machines. Isn't that great?

Their company was even rated almost 5 stars for their quality machines and services. I checked their site and I even liked their own lines of cleaning stuffs for stains or pets. Now, this is something worth checking for. Do try them, and every penny is really worth it!


Unpredictable Weather

For a over a week, Gen Santos has been experiencing erratic weather conditions, from extreme heat in the morning, to gloomy and heavy rain in the afternoon. We would usually end up with bad colds.

The weather affects business too as it keeps our potential customers from visiting us. We hope to finally have a stable weather in the coming days.
