Chiz Escudero's Resignation from Nationalist People Coalition

Sen. Chiz Escudero was expected to announce his presidential plans this day of October 28 but everyone was shocked for the announcement that he resigns from NPC (Nationalist People Coalition).

He said that someone who runs for president should not be allied with any political party. He doesn't want to be chained with any party.

He did the announcement in front of the crowd at Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan City. He always said that the decision of running or not running of a particular position, should be personal and not be passed by anyone.

He was asked if he is really running for presidency but he said he has yet to decide about it.

Check out the video during his announcement:

Now that I am older, I got interested on educational shows like National Geographic and I became a fan of movies. I knew there were lots I have never watched before and I knew I can only find it on cable and I won't spend renting dvd's. Today, I have an internet connection and I searched for movies to download. My father also requested me to look for quality films because he really enjoys it. My family loves watching here in our computer. Actually, it really takes time to download.

My Odesk Earning

I was hired on October 14. It was my first time to use Odesk and I forgot that I still haven't unzipped the files I downloaded from it. The buyer or employer hired me and sent an email to my google mail for the instructions for the task. In just two days I earned $6.68. Isn't it a good start? Maybe for the coming days, my earnings will grow. Hehehe!

Nobody, a Sensational Hit by Wonder Girls

Wonder Girls are a pop group from South Korea who are very famous with the hit song Nobody. I first heard this song when I watched Korean series Boys over Flowers when one of the character of the show sang the song. Even though her voice wasn't good but the song was very catchy.

Here is the US Debut Single of the music video and the rest are spoofs so have fun on the videos. ^_^

The Philippine Blog Awards

I never thought there is a Filipino Blogging Community which is called "The Philippine Blog Awards". It is about giving recognition to outstanding blogs but not limited to the Filipino Blogging Community. I just surfed around and found it interesting. Yes, you can vote which are nominated for certain categories. You can vote but I can't. Hahahaha! It is because I never had one already established before June 2009 (too bad for me).

A lot were nominated for the Blogger's Choice Special Award. I clicked some of it and you got to be amazed. Wow! They really spend time for it. Just getting inspirations from them.

Could anyone suggest how to improve mine? Any advice? Thanks!

Dove Soap, Good for the Skin

I am a fan of Dove on Facebook. I've been using it for two years since I got my skin allergy. The reason of my allergy was because of eating chicken everyday due to my previous job and I was prone to dust. I've tried another soaps recommended by a doctor but it didn't help me. I've got skin rashes. My allergy got worst and the soap was so expensive. I think it was Php 150.00 per box. If I use the it on my face, my pimples get worst too.

When I use this, I feel refreshed for there is no harsh reaction on my skin. No flaky white lines to be seen when scratched. It has moisturizing cream so no need for a lotion afterward. Unlike with the previous, I found red spots on my skin and it was itchy. Maybe it is acidic and I have to buy a lotion to keep my skin moisturize which is a waste of money.

Oh! By the way, Christmas is coming. My friends out there or anyone out there who has plan of giving gifts to me, Dove products would be appreciated. I love the White Beauty bar soap. Just drop me a message. Thanks. ^_^

Let's campaign for real beauty!

Pinoy Big Brother Double Up

After one year and four months, the Pinoy Big Brother House is now open for new set of housemates. Magical was the theme of the opening of the show. The house is so cool and colorful which is inspired by Van Gogh's paintings. A lot of questions have been raised why the new season is called "DOUBLE UP".

Double Up because there are TWINS on the show. Identical twins to be exact. Not just a pair but TWO PAIRS OF TWINS, all males. The show is very exciting for this first task given to the twins. Lots of twists and happenings on the show and you've got to watch the show if the twins could accomplished the task given by Big Brother.

Manila's Flood Reason

It took how many days before the flood went out. There were questions why Manila was flooded for long days when in fact typhoon Ondoy was on it's way out of the country. A geodetic engineer who is an expert said that it is because of the drainage system of Manila. The people who started the project of wrong drainage system did not consult them. Water can't flow immediately through the rivers like Pasig river because of it's narrow drainage and that's why water was block within the area. He compared Manila as a heart which is having a heart attack that blood flows to a section of heart muscle and blocked. The only solution is having a heart bypass, he said, by making drainage through Manila Bay and/or Laguna de Bay. If another typhoon comes, the flood tragedy will not ever happen again.

How To Get A Job

During my second year college, I had a part-time job in a fast-food chain. The reason I took part-time is because I want to gain working experience. Fast-food chains are the stepping stone to find greater opportunities in the future after graduation. There is advantage on having a part-time even though you are undergraduate or stopped college for financial reason.

Like me, I stopped college on my third year level because of money. I only had six months on my previous working experience. I searched through MyNimo, Jobstreet and any sites you can find on the net. For those who are living in Cebu you can have Cebu Jobs. Any sites you can add on my list?

You can try hunting works on malls. I've tried this when it happened I strolled at SM-Cebu on one of their sports boutiques with their post hiring for a sales staff. You can also try calling your friends, relatives and acquaintances if they can recommend you for openings and this commonly called as employee referrals. It also happened to me and a schoolmate from high school suggested to apply on this BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) company.

You have to be confident. This is the most important thing in looking for a job. You must assure that you fit for the position.

Prepare your resume. List all your skills in your resume and any working experiences if you have.

Search about the company. This is also important if this is your prospective company. Memorize the mission-vision, if possible and what does the company do.

Prepare your answers for the possible questions. You can practice it in front of the mirror so that you can see your reflection as the interviewer.

Any additional tips? Feel free to post. Thanks. ^_^
