Helper woes..

Monday, March 08, 2010

Managing a household, I realized is not easy. It looks easy but it isn't.

Last December, my reliable helper had to leave because her family is being relocated to Laguna. She told me that she will try her best to return because she enjoys her job. I have to be very honest, I love her dearly - she's really something. I don't need to tell her what to do! She sometimes even suggests on what she can do to clean! Isn't that something? But then, she had to go.

Now, my mom found me a helper. She's quite forgetful, she needs a lot of reminding. At first, the reminding was okay - but after a while, I get tired of reminding her to do things. Thus, I made a list of things to do everyday, once a week and reminding of what she needs to do before she sleeps. I printed it out and even laminated it so it won't get destroyed.

She still doesn't follow at all!! She still forgets some tasks!!

What am I to do with her?

My patience is really thinning.

Taking care of a household... Waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!

After 7 months, I officially have a 'drinking glass' casualty. The helper broke the it last night, she lifted the whole dish rack to clean the pan underneath. She said she forgot the glass was there, and when she lifted the rack - the glass fell on the floor - kaboom!

Rest in Peace JP!!

Last night, I attended the funeral of a godbrother. I actually do not know if we’re god brothers, but one of his sisters is my mom’s goddaughter – so, I think it was safe to assume that we were god brothers. I’ve known their family since I was little. We attended each other’s birthday parties, saw each other in school and other social functions. They’re those type of people who you have so many many common friends with, most everyone knew them in one way or another.

To give you an overview – his parents had three daughters, and since there were enough daugters – his parents hoped that on the fourth pregnancy, it would be a boy. And indeed it was a boy – JP. His parents tried three more times after JP, but no boy came, instead they were blessed with three more beautiful daughters. Since JP was the only boy – he was the favorite of everyone, especially his dad.

During the eulogy of his friends, JP’s dad cried a lot. To tell you the truth. I’ve never seen so much love for a son and for a dad. With the stories that were told, one can safely assume that he was a daddy’s boy. He was the dad’s favorite, and in return – his dad was his favorite too! JP was said to be so proud of his dad and I’ll be correct to assume that he loved is dad so much too. His friends kept repeating ‘Uncle Joey, JP loved you so much! The love, I tell you is unmatched.

JP was a very good friend as he regarded his friends like their were family. As Auntie Juliet would say ‘Papatay yan para sa kaibigan’ (he would kill for a friend) - that is how loyal he is. And that is a rarity nowadays. Loyalty most often that not, comes with a price. But with JP – he gave it freely and to everyone who wanted it. He was the life of the party, everywhere he goes – the people he’s with will surely enjoy his company.

He dies two days after he celebrated his 26th birthday. He died in a car crash on the C5/Ortigas flyover. His godmother says that the marks left by the car crash is still visible on the wall of the flyover – the red paint is still there.

JP was a very happy, caring and loyal fellow..

Rest in peace dear JP!!

Do watch over us..

In this day and age, most everyone has a laptop. Most everyone carries it around, whether for work or school. But what makes your different from mine? Yes, even at this day and age - there is quest for 'individuality' - the factor that sets us apart from the others.
Enter laptop accessories. When you actually think about it – it’s kinda dumb, I mean – why the hell set you laptop apart from another? It’s as if there will be an identity theft or something right? Welcome – unique ideas to make yourself stand out from the rest!
Mind you, laptop accessories do not just serve as eye candy. They have a purpose! They protect our beloved lappies from so many things!! Take for example a laptop bag. How do you lug around your latop? Of course, you’ll need a bag! But how do you want to carry it? There are those messenger bags, knapsacks and shoulder bags. And how about laptop sleeves? Those tight fit cases that protects your laptop which you can keep inside your bag, if it is big enough! Haha! How about protecting your keypads form getting dirty inside? How about a screen protector to minimize fingerprints? is a website that carries all of these and more! And the best thing is that - it’s right at your fingertips! Everything you need from laptop accessories, laptop bag, laptop sleeves, laptop bags, extra batteries, chargers, mice, docks, jackets, skins! Want a specific brand? Looking for a brand specific accessory? I own a macbook and its quite hard looking for a certain accessory like a macbook case, without jumping from one website to another trying to find it. It's quite frustrating, you know - but with Gearzap, I find literally everything that I need in just one website! No more jumping from here to there or remembering web addresses and questioning if they're legit or not.

Gearzap is literally a one stop shop for your lappies and netbooks. It houses all the major brands, carries most everything that you will ever need and more! And the best things – it accepts major credit cards, paypal and delivers fast. What’s more? They have a 30-day money back guarantee!!
