A Night of Halloween!

Today is another October 31! And this day is another popular day to all of us. As they say, this day is the so-called "bimperas ng araw ng mga patay"!

Since I was I child, I know that this night is the night wherein the souls of our departed love ones visited us. Yeah, it's such a frightening night since their souls return in our home to remind us that tomorrow is their day. A day for us to visit them!

It seems true! I already had experiences pertaining to this beliefs.

The first one was during college. It was a Halloween night in our previous rented home. The grandparents of our neighbor were already dead. They believe that during a night like this, their souls visited them. They have dogs. And we know that if a dog do an 'alulong' sound, it sees a ghost! And that very night, their dog eventually 'umalulong' saying "awooohhh"!!! That made me believed that the souls of their love ones already came and visited them!

Another experience is just this day. Yup, only this morning!

You know that my beloved auntie already passed away last August 23, 2010. And just this morning, I had a dream. I was watching TV particularly a Willie Revillame's "Wowowee". Then my auntie came in my room. I said to her that my eyes were tired. She touched and massage my eyes to heal. I also complained to her that I experienced some health disorder. Then she said, she has no power to heal. But still she keeps on massaging my eyes.

Before she go, I told her that I already bought my laptop. She was very happy to see my new laptop. She even asked me to teach her play a game with my new laptop. I even introduced to her my little black stuff toy kitten. I say she's the child of Miming Negro!

When she leaved my room, I eventually woke up. It seems so very real! I didn't thought that it was just a dream! My auntie just visited me today through my dream!

Hayz...that were some of my real life experience pertaining to Halloween, a night where souls visited their remaining love ones based on our beliefs!

But in other countries like in Canada and US, Halloween is a night for kids, another party celebration! Trick or treats and costume parties were some of the activities they annually celebrated!

So, let's spend this night according to what we believe! Again, let me greeted you with:

Happy Halloween!

And Now They were Two!

Now we already have two personal computers. The first one is my LCD personal computer which I bought last December 2009. The second one is my new Toshiba laptop which I bought just this October 24, 2010.

Since we already have two computers in our home, let's now compare and contrast them. Yup, it's fun to see these two together. I love bringing them closer together like in these pictures!

These two computers were two of the fruits of my hardwork. They can now be counted as two of my property investments. Seeing these two together, "sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam...dito napunta ang ilan sa mga pinaghirapan ko..." ! Wow!

The Face-off of my PC and my Laptop!

Now that I already have my own laptop, my previous PC is now owned by my younger brother! Yup, my younger brother is now the owner of that PC! I already gave it to him. We will not anymore compete in using only one PC. We have now our own property!

These two computers both have an internet connection. A DSL connection is for our PC while a wireless network is for my laptop. Yup, I bought a wireless router, the D-link which gives internet connection for these two PCs.

The operating system (OS) of our PC is Vista while my laptop is Windows 7. Their processors were both Intel Pentium. Our PC is Core Duo while my laptop is Dual Core. 2GB is the RAM of our PC but in my laptop, it is only 1GB DDR3 but I will upgrade it later on to 4GB!

Our PC is still placed in its original location in our sala. My laptop is located now in our bedroom. Before I permanently placed it and its table in our bedroom, I brought them closer together just like the one you see above! By the way talking of their computer tables, our PC's table is a blackish-brown while my laptop's table is brown. Both of them were made of a concrete wood. Yeah, I bought them exclusively for my PC and for my laptop!

Hayz...there were really very inspiring and relaxing to see! They were truly the fruits of my labor and my hardwork that I should be proud of! Nice! I hope I also inspires you! C",)

My New Toshiba Laptop!

As promised, I will share with you the specs and the appearance of my newest Toshiba laptop. Are you ready?! Let's go!

Here is how my Toshiba laptop looks like. Take a quick glance to it:

My New Toshiba Laptop

It's Me (So Sexy) While Taking Photos of My New Notebook!

My brand new laptop is a 14" screen Toshiba Notebook with L510 model. It has a gray cover and a black monitor screen. Keyboard is also black but surrounded with glossy silver around.

It has a licensed Windows 7 Operating System (OS) which I can use for a lifetime. But its Microsoft office applications as well as its Norton Ant-Virus is only a trial version limited only for 60 days. After 60 days, I need to bought for its license!

Taking Its Side View!

One More Shot!

Talking about its vital specs, it has a 1GB DDR3 memory. Actually, it can be upgraded to 2GB for free. But since there were three items to be given as freebies when I bought this laptop namely a 2GB upgrade, a Samsung e1080 cellphone, and an hp printer, I preferred the Samsung e1080 cellphone rather than the 2GB upgrade or hp printer because my brother needs a cellphone. I gave that cellphone to him. I didn't choose the 2GB upgrade nor the hp printer because right now, I'm satisfy with its speed and I didn't yet need a printer!

It has a hard disk drive capacity of 320 GB. I partitioned its storage to two drives, Drive C and Drive E for securing my stored files and backups.

My new laptop is also a Wi-Fi ready. Yup, whenever you have a wireless router, you can easily connect to internet without having difficulties in configuration! Moreover, it has a Bluetooth application, built-in DVD player/writer and web cam. It already had its Toshiba CD/DVD burning application so that you don't anymore need to install Nero on it!

When At Rest!

My Trusted Brand!

Since it is already in Windows 7, more applications found on both XP and Vista were applied to it. But of course, there were many more new applications to enjoy with which were only provided by Window 7 OS. Examples were the radar detection, the slide show wallpaper, extra gadgets on its desktop, automatic browser fit, and many more to mention!

Besides the cellphone, it also has a free Genius optical mouse and a convenient laptop bag!

Right now, I just bought a laptop screen protector and a keyboard rubber protector to protect my newly bought laptop. I've ensure that I will give the best form of care to it! =)

I am currently in the 'getting to know you' stage with my new laptop. Yup, "nangingilala pa siya"! But sooner, we will be as closer as possible with it just like my previous PC!

Alright, hope you're satisfied with my new laptop introduction! See you once again with my new laptop post series! Have a nice day guys! C",)

My New Laptop Package!

Finally, I alreadey bought my new laptop! In the afternoon of October 24, 2010, me and my mother bought a Toshiba laptop in Landmark Trinoma.

The laptop which I bought is a Toshiba L510 model. Yup, that's the one I presented to you in my previous post. Don't worry 'coz later on, I will also share with you the complete specs of my chosen laptop.

For today, I will show you first the complete package I got when I bought the laptop!

Just like my good friend told me, a Toshiba laptop is good but its expensive! Yeah, he's right. My new laptop is quite expensive. But, I consider the quality rather than the price. After doing many research, I found that Toshshiba is the best quality in terms of notebooks and netbooks. They were already 25 years in the business compared with the other brand! So, will I need saccrifice the quality for a cheaper one?!

Besides considering the quality amidst of high price, there were some freebies included in my laptop. And these were below:

My Complete Laptop Package!

My New Toshiba Laptop Freshly Bought!

A Samsung E1080 cellphone, an optical mouse, and a laptop bag were the free items I got when I bought this laptop. Actually there were three free items to chose from: a Samsung E1080 cellphone, an hp printer, and a 1GB memory upgrade. I chose the Samsung cellphone since my brother needs it! I didn't prefer the hp printer since we didn't need it yet as well as the 1GB memory upgrade since I'm currently satisfy with the speed of this new laptop!

The D-Link Wireless router that you can see is not a free item! Yup, I bought it since I need a wi-fi for this new notebook. After we arrived home, I used my IT and engineering skills in networking to configure the router so that we have an internet connection for both my PC and for my laptop! And it's a big success! Now at the same time, my brother can browse the net and play internet games in my old PC (which is already his) while I'm blogging here in my new laptop! Nice!

Here are the items which come together with my new laptop! Except for the wireless router, all of the said items were free! I enjoy a great quality, at the same time enjoying the free items! Expensive price is not anymore an issue to me! Hehe...!

This my second post featuring my new laptop! On my next post, I will show you how it actually looks like and share with you its specs! So, watch out for this exciting new laptop series! So glad! C",)

The Search for a Laptop!

It's final...! I already decided! Tomorrow will be the day! Oh yeah!

After my short search (which is only last month then yesterday), I finally decided what laptop to buy!

Tomorrow, I will buy my new laptop! I will buy a Toshiba laptop with a model of L510. Yup, this is the one you see in the pictures! What can you say?! Do I got my best choice?!

Actually I searched the different gadgets and PC stores to look for the best laptop to buy. ElectroWorld, Silicon Valley, Villman, Complink, Cyberzone, and many more PC stores in Trinoma, SM North Edsa, and SM Valenzuela. And finally, I found the one I'm searching for!

My first plan is to buy a netbook. But after I compared the different specs of a netbook, I wasn't satisfied. Netbook has no DVD writer and the memory is not that large. Though some provides a portable DVD, it's still messy to use when a driver is attached to it. The only advantage I found on it is its light weight, its portable and can use everywhere!

I got many laptop brochures and spec sheets. I compared one brand from the other. Atlast, I chosen the brand whom I think the best among the rest! I hope I got my best choice!

Yes, it's Toshiba L510. It has a 1 GB DDR3 memory but can be upgraded to 2GB. Hard disk drive is 350 GB. It has a built-in web camera and DVD writer. What more, it has a free Samsung cellphone or a printer!

Try to look at the images above and below of my chosen new laptop. And also, I got a short video of it from the Youtube. Try to watch a short video of it below! Then afterward, tell me if I got my best choice!

Tomorrow morning, I will go with my mother in one of the prestige store to buy this laptop. Then in my next post, I will share with you my bought laptop!

Then what will I do with my PC?! I will give it to my younger brother. Tomorrow when I already have my own laptop, this PC will be my brother's property! C",)

Three Look Alike!

What did these three guys have in common?! Do you see their great similarities?! Do you noticed the resemblance in them?!

What did Dennis, Rocky, and Coco have in common?!

On my previous posts, I told you my different look alike. I even posted a face-off between my face versus the actors whom I have a great resemblance! And that post became one of the trending topic in the internet. All of you really love that post!

And now, here we go again! This is the third part of my look-alike saga!

I discover something! And it was proven! People and even the modern technology proves that Dennis Trillo, Rocky Batara, and Coco Martin were really look alike! We were like a carbon copy of each other! Take a quick glance once again with our faces:

Who's the Cutest? Who Got the Great Look?!

If I were to ask you, who will you bet among Dennis, Rocky, and Coco, who will you choose? Or it's hard for you to do this since these three really have a great resemblance! Oh...I'm so sad na mahihirapan kang pumili...!

In my previous two posts last year and last March about my look alike, I have showed you that Rocky and Coco is look alike and Dennis and Rocky is also look alike. This theory is even supported and proven by one of the hi-tech application in Facebook and in one of the look-alike tester in the internet.

When I tried using the application, it was revealed that Rocky is 99% look-alike of Coco Martin and 100% look-alike of Dennis Trillo! Wow! I can't believe on that! Technology then supported my two previous posts! Hehe...!

Applying an equation in Mathematics and a theory in Logic, if Dennis is equal to Rocky and Rocky is equal to Coco, then we can derive an equation and a Mathematical statement saying that:

Dennis = Rocky = Coco

Agree?! I know you are convinced very much! Not only pictures, not only our faces, but technology and Mathematics really prove that Dennis, Rocky, and Coco were really look-alike! Hahaha...!

What if we three meet in person, will you can still identify who among them is Dennis, Rocky, and Coco?! Hayz...that's another big problem to solve!

By the way, when I tried the said application now finding my female look-alike or your female resemblance, it revealed that I'm 25% look-alike of Kim Chiu and 100% look-alike of Angel Locsin! What??! Haha...!!!

Well, see you next time on my next look-alike saga! Who do you think will be my next look-alike?! C",)

A Drunken Puppy!

Since October is a month for beers and liquors, look what we have right now...a drunken cute puppy! Oh yeah!

Yup, that is a real puppy. This was tagged to me by one my my Facebook friend who is selling cute puppies. And it really took my attention!

It was my first time to see a puppy who loves to drink wines and liquors. It seems that, he is very happy roaming around the bottles of expensive wines. And he turn down one bottle. He tried drinking all of the wines inside it!

Hayz...if all the puppies out there were like this, expect that a liquor ban will be released so very soon!

Well, even though this puppy is very alcoholic, he is still cute and fun to own! Hope that he is still tame even though he's drunk! Aw..aw..aw...! C",)

10.10.10

"Triple 10"... Three 10's... 101010 or 10/10/10 or 10.10.10!

Another 'triple' number! Another date having three similar numbers. Today is Sunday, October 10, 2010!

Time is really fast. Just recently, I am writing an article about 09.09.09. It was September 09, 2009 before which was also a triple number date! And today, I am again here in front of my PC writing for a special post now about 10.10.10!

Like what I have said before, what is 10.10.10? Is there something important about this date? What is the significance of this date in our lives? Will it be a lucky date?

Have Your Marked The Date?!

Will I Wait for the Coming of Another Day...?!

Last year when I was writing an article about 09.09.09, I was in our office busy for work. It was Wednesday that year and I was in a night shift.

Today, I am now writing an article for another triple-numbered date. This time it's for 10.10.10. Unlike last year, I am now here in our home (since today is Sunday and my work rest day) writing an article using our own PC! Wow...it's an impressive accomplishment! It's because, I already owned now our own PC unlike before that I am only using our office computers to publish post. And it is one of the great developments to date! Probably next year when I write an article about 11.11.11, I will using my own laptop! Naks! Yes because I will buy my own laptop before the end of this year and I will give this PC to my brother!

Back in 10.10.10, when I searched the internet about this date, I found many events that are going to happen today. Many people, many associations, and many event organizers set their activities to be happened on the tenth day of October 2010! And one of these event is the fun run called "Takbo Para Sa Pasig", a fun run spearheaded by ABS-CBN to save the Pasig River. And proud to say that my brother is one of the runner since their school delegated them to be part of the event!

On TV, many of the new TV shows are set to start today! "Your Song Presents Andi" and "Star Power" are some of the instance!

But, why did they really set all things for 10.10.10?

Yeah, It's A Perfect Number!

Others Set Their Wedding in 10.10.10!

Churches and Other Organizations Set Activities Today!

10.10.10 looks perfect! It's a well-balanced number. It seems so lucky so people really go for it! It's another remarkable date in the history. And it's very easy to memorize!

Talking about World History (since World, Asian, and Philippine Histories were my favorite subjects in High School), do you know about the so-called "Double Ten"! Yup, it was an event in World History that happened on October 10 that's why it was called as Double Ten! I can't exactly recall that historical event. If I'm not mistaken, I think that was the domination of Genghis Khan or a particular revolution in China?! I will appreciate it you will help me verify that event! Hehe...!

Talking about my personal life, 10.10.10 is still another simple and plain date to me! No such special happenings or events. Still living the same life I have! I didn't expect any. It will come for good...!

Well, that's 10.10.10! How bout you?! Would you like to share your experience about this special date?! Let me hear from you! C",)

An Early Halloween Treat This October!

We are now on the tenth month of the year! Wooh...time is really fast! Just a while ago, we were starting the first month of the year, the month of the heart, my birthday, then summer, then now we are currently on the second Ber month!

What's in October?! Another interesting month to focus with!

For this year, October bears a significant number combination. We have in this month the so called 'triple 10' or the 10.10.10! Yeah, we will be having October 10, 2010, a perfect date to mark!

Since Halloween falls on the last day of October, we will be having an early Halloween treat! It's too early! We will discuss some of the ghost stories and we will look back to some of the mysterious or supernatural things! You can even share your own horror stories!

What more?! Of course expect other surprises! I will share with you surprise posts. But expect more posts about Halloween, ghosts, supernaturals, or magical tales! And since October also connotes a 'beer' month such as Oktoberfest or Rockfest, I will share with you humor post about beers and liquors! I assure, you will really laugh on that!

So let us embrace October. One month to go, we will be commemorating our departed love ones. Then two months later, it's the merriest event of the year, the Christmas time! Let's start then dealing with October...! Rock on! C",)
