Comments Not Working

SO I was successful finally in changing my template, but found out later that comments are not showing. When i saw the words FATAL ERROR, it scared the hell out of me. Just yesterday morning, I accidentally killed this blog and now here comes another terrifying moment…

I fixed it by following THIS.

<?php // echo avatar_by_id( $comment->user_id, 32 ); ?>

Just add // between php and echo.

I didn’t expect it to be THAT EASY. HAHA. Thank you Lord for the opportunity to learn new things everyday…and for saving me from those nosebleeding days that’s hard to endure.

Blog Makeover

Last night, I decided it was the perfect time to rearrange things in my blog life, so I changed my template, dropped the banner and deleted some stuff that’s eating up a lot of space. And yes, I finally switched to WordPress version 2.8! Yeay! Imagine, I was using the 2.3.2 version for 2 years lol. The first time I tried to update my WP, I messed up and deleted the database and everything else that need not be deleted. Good thing my host had a back up, but I lost some of my entries and those precious comments. Since then, I never tried to do an update again, but after reading and following carefully the instructions, I was able to do it myself hahaha. That’s quite an achievement for me. Hopefully, I can find time to makeover my other blogs too.

So the next step now is to reformat and upgrade the desktop at home. I need to buy computer memory for my PC and an external hard drive, plus  a nice headset with microphone for podcasting 🙂

Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009

I now present to you my honest vote for this year’s Top 10 Influential Blogs.


1. BARRIO SIETE – One of a kind. I’ve been blogging since time immemorial, I’ve seen the worst and the best, sa totoo lang ha walang halong charing…barrio siete is the best collective blog there is. Kudos to the Barrio Capitana and the Barrio councilors.

2. Dear Bloggery – Ang nag iisang Ms. Congenialty ng Blogosphere na uber bait at uber active sa mga blogging activities. Go go go snow white!

3. Revsiopao – The Not-Quite-HOLY smörgåsbord of Revsiopao, take your bite! (minsan asado, minsan bola-bola). Sa totoo lang, nag iba ang pananaw ko sa mga Reverends/Pari/Seminarista when I met him, along with Brother Utoy and Bluep. Nakaka turn off pala hahaha charing lang.

4. The Struggling Blogger – Napanood ko sya sa ch 2 sa show ni Korina featuring his blog “Letters To Mama”, I went online agad to check it out…waaaah, super touching and inspiring. Kuya Roy, ifever you read this,  thank you for sharing your life to us, don’t worry, life is not an endless struggle.    

5. Sa labas nang Mandaluyong – Kaloka ang grammar ng isang to, hindi lang subject-verb agreement. When I grow up, i want to be like him.  

6. Extra Super Special Batchoy with Egg – Aakalain mo bang Palanca awardee ang lola ko? Hahaha. His wit and humor is exemplary.

7. Nortehanon – Super bilib ako sa blogger na to, iilang bloggers lang ang may mabuting adhikain noh, kaya let’s support Nortehanon’s PENS OF HOPE

8. Chocolateword – When you read her posts alam mo agad na matalino sya. ‘day, I want to be like you, gusto ko din makadale ng amerkano hahaha.

9. Dare to speak out! by Silver –  Wala akong masabi sa isang to, napaka-fearless. Eto yata ang makabagong-Gabriela. She has a say about everything – from politics to showbiz to everything else.

10. It’s Johnonymous! – I often get amazed whenever he comments about a certain topic, parang ang galing-galing. So when I checked his blog, I found out that his biggest admiration goes to those who are into social causes and positive changes. Taray di ba?

It’s amazing what these guys have accomplished in a very short period of time. They have their own following already. Eto yata ang mga social climbers to the highest level of all levels!!!! LOL

Summer’s Just Around The Corner

It’s summer time na!!! Summer’s just around the corner and my colleagues are already planning a getaway either in Puerto Galera or Hundred Islands. Can you feel the heat already?  So stressful to sleep at night, our small desk fan is not putting out enough air to fan the whole room. I’ve been feeling bad the past days, suffering from dry cough since we came back last Thursday, due to weather change I guess hehehe. Maybe I got so used to HK’s freezing cold weather, my body didn’t adjust well when I came back hahaha plus, I haven’t had enough sleep the past days! The trip turned out to haha be more stressful than relaxing. I didn’t realized it’s winter in HK, I didn’t bring any coat or thick jacket with me, in fact, I only brought a mid-length blazer, not enough to keep me warm from HK’s cold weather. We were soaked in the rain the first two days we came. We were all thoroughly wet and tired but that didn’t stop us from walking the streets of Mongkok. The following day, the weather was splendid, still cold but it was nice to get out.

Maybe I should ask bossing to install  modern ceiling fans in the house. Check out the unique ceiling fans and ceiling fan accessories offered at They have a dozen popular ceiling fan manufacturers like casablanca fans, Craftmade, Ellington, Fanimation, Hunter Fan Company, Luceplan, Matthews Fans, Minka Aire, Modern Fan Company, Monte Carlo fans, NuTone, Quorum and Westinghouse. You can also order your customized fans with all the specifications that you need. How cool is that?

Summer is upon us and I have to say that it’s one of my favorite seasons. Can’t wait to try parasailing in Hundred Islands. Yipppeee!

It feels good to be back

It’s been a tiring week. The HK tour was super but I feel super duper tired. I started working as soon as I arrived last Thursday morning (2AM) and it really feels good to be back home! Tomorrow is my rest day, finally, I’ll be able to get enough sleep and beauty rest. I missed my bed! My pillows and my warm blanket which comforts me when I feel cold. I so missed you sunshine! HK’s weather was a bit gloomy and windy, with some rains. I missed how the sun would shine through the Cheap Blinds on my window! And yah know what I missed the most? Blogging hehehe. Night!

The Tour That Blogging Bought

Bukas na ang tindahan! Just got back this morning from the land of Hong Kong noodles para ma-experience ang lifestyle ng mga well-to-do ahahaha.

Weeee! This tour is brought to you by Pepe and Pilar in Pasig earnings.

Patapos pa lang ang winter, grabeng sobrang lamig. Sarado ang mga pores!!!




hay napagod ako kakataas ng kamay

ang new hairdo, bangs at ang parang inogag na highlights ni Ate Georgia LOL.

Back to work, back to reality na. Expect more Pepe and Pilars in the next few days dahil kayod marino ulet ang ditse nyo. More pics to follow. Check out my next entries, I’ll tell you more chika, tips about packing, suggestions, what-nots and all other stuff you need to know when visiting Hong Kong in a tight budget. Super duper tipid talaga ito, in fact, twice a day lang kami kumain hahahha. For 8 days, including a trip to Macau, sa maniwala kayo o hinde, posible ang 20K pesoses na budget, pero ref magnets lang ang ma-sho-shopping mo with that money ha kaya wag mag expect ng Gucci bag dahil kahit yung japeyk eh pagkamahal-mahal doon hahah. I’ll tell you more about it soon, pag may time, meantime, maglalaba muna ang ditse, santambak ang labada ko as in.
