Philippine Nurses Underpaid

I just had a harsh realization early today while nursing a terrible flu. My cousin is in town to take a licensing exam to be able to apply work in AbuDhabi. I was asking why he needed to work overseas when he’s already a Nursing Supervisor at a private hospital in the province, thinking he […]

Is It Safe To Let Kids Drink Hot Tea?

I’ve asked friends who are experts on eating and drinking right and they said it’s safe. One friend quipped, ” Heck, I’m giving my kids soda and it must be wayyy harmful than a cup of tea”. Hmm..that makes sense doesn’t it? Personally, I dislike any kind of soda. It hurts my throat when I […]

Usability For Development Organization Websites

Yay! Saw this bar from another development org. I was quite pleased that even human development organizations are aiming for their websites to be easy to use and friendly. I wonder if this site is using a Web To Print Software. I like their idea of “scavenger hunt” too. Zings the brain to participate because it […]

Wow, seriously? I have heard of restaurants in Singapore and some parts of the US were diners with kids are refused to be served or let in. There were also some who were brave and even posted a NO KIDS ALLOWED sign on their restaurant doors. But this one’s new to me…a mall intolerant of […]

I’m Turning 30 And I Know It!

Graphic Design and Web Development Skills

Of all the profile tests I took last year, none of them shows I’m artistic or creative with designs and structures. I am more of a text and word person rather than a create and design type. It’s one of the areas that I wanted to develop but I guess, being a graphic designer entails […]

Ever since, I’m known to tell my best friends everything but when I got married, the first thing that my Mom taught me was: ‘Do not talk about your marital problems to your friends’. My Mom’s a wise woman, I tell you. So why shouldn’t we tell on our marital woes?
