The New Face of Facebook

Is it true that Facebook is at war with some subscribers for some major reasons?

1.  FB created a pane on the side bar, same "looks"  like the twitter real time posting has where you can see updates scrolling every second counts.

2. The  left side bar of the home page was added couple of lists like the location, school, family and etc. In the google+ they set it as "Circles"

3. The update box turned into almost the same as the google+ where you can add location and choose a group or friends who can only read your post.

4. When you upload photos the system will automatically arrange them into a set card or  grid type,  some are still in loved with the previous version way, but for me I like it.

Personally I like this new format this is more interactive, well engineered and well planned. but the only thing that I believe that's gone is the "uniqueness. Well, this 6-year old networking site is evolving willing to show to the world what is the meaning of endless POSSIBILITIES.

The Sense of Adsense

Worth it to do blogging while you earn from it.  I just had my second paycheck  from google fresh from the US with additional information attached. Am I quite well with viral posting and blasting huh? I guess yes! and thank you readers for the ratings and supporting the ads posted here.

Proven that you don't have to post everyday, the only thing that you need to secure is that you have to HAVE better PR and good e-marketing strategy, although daily posting helps. 

I learned that food blogs, events, movies, showbiz and promotions including travel, these are the top blogs that will surely help you boost your AdSense (from my point of views). I just don't get it why my graphic design post made it to number 2 hot spot hmmm sounds amazing.  I am doing an integrated blogging putting 3 to 4 niches in one box and labeling my topic according to its supposed niche does matter.               

Thanks Google!

I Love Milkita

Some people say that Lollipop is only for KIDS and awkward to see adults eating some, but for me it's a big NO, Most especially if it is MILKITA LOLLIPOP, Although the target market of this product are the kids.

Last time I brought a pack of MILKITA in the office, I thought I was the only one who love this kind of Lollipop. When I opened one piece our accountant reacted and almost shout  "OH IT'S MILKITA!" I was amazed how this kind of lollipops are known to mothers.

What I like most about Milkita Lollipop is the Packaging, very well sealed but easy to open. You can really see how safe you are when you buy this kind of Lollipop as far as your health is concerned.  It has flavors that suits to everyone's taste buds. Personally I like Chocolate, Melon and Strawberry Flavor, I like all the flavors though, but the earlier mentioned were my favorites.

I remember a year ago I was only watching Judy Ann Santos endorsing Milkita, then today, it's like it's my turn now promoting Milkita to everyone. And yes worth it to promote to all my readers to grab some MILKITA when you go to grocery stores and have it present whenever your entire family are watching TV or  put it in your  children's pocket when going to school.

Chocolate Flavor

Melon Flavor

 Strawberry Flavor

MILKITA is the only candy and lollipop products made with real milk. Infact eating 3 pieces of lollipops is equivalent to one glass of milk.

Milkita is exclusively distributed by "Global Noble International" here in the Philippines.

50's Diner: My Super Burger Encounter

50's Diner Baguio City . My Super Burger encounter

A simple Lunch and get-together with my friends at 50's Diner in Baguio City. One night before the bonding time, my friend asked me if I love burger, then I said YES without blinking my eyes because I really wanna see what's 50's Diner is.

The restaurant isn't that huge, but they can accommodate for approximately 60 to 100 heads per dining. I can see people waiting outside for their turn to get in.  We were seven then so we didn't wait for our turn for so long. I was seated near the counter area because I was trying to figure out the design of the place  from the kitchen all the way to the doorway and I got it right what was puzzling on my head. Their wall filled with photos/poster  of the1950's popular singers, like Elvies Presley, Marilyn Monroe and more.

The photos below shows how great encounter it was during our get-together at the said restaurant.

My Juicy Giant Burger. So Yummy. So Delicious!!!

Yours truly and my friends: Ralph, Ms. Ningning Doble and Jenny

A week ago, My Friends and I went to Baguio City for an Event (PUSONG PINOY HEROES RUN) held at the Burnham Park. The most memorable experience ever had. It was a week where typhoon Mina also had her Vacation at the said city.  Our Team leaders and coordinators booked us at Reyalta Inn, a place where we found our little way of peace and relaxation.

Reyalta Inn is a typical Filipino "hotel like" house where they accommodate tourists both foreign and locals.  It's like a big house with common living room with veranda where you can standby and relax, or if you are a smoker yes you can use the area I believe. And there's this room  beside the bar where I liked the most, though we didn't have the chance to use it but I find it cozy and clean it's the KTV room.

Walking distance from SM,  and the famous Session Road and if you're a burger lover it's also a walking distance to the famous 50's diners near the Pink Sisters Convent. 

So I must say thanks Reyalta for giving us a good stay,  Also I wanna thank Mary Chris for the excellent assistance.  - see you when I see you, Till next vacation.
