Mine the Free Stuff

The freebee mentality exists everywhere. I think we are just hardwired to want for things that we don’t really worked that hard for. It could be coming from a primordial impulse when Nature has been providing all of our needs. But then, it could just be because of plain laziness. Anyway, you can talk about freebee mentality in relation to Marx’s Das Capital or Weber’s The Protestant Ethic and Spirit of Capitalism. Point is, everyone loves freebies. I was looking for a good Wordpress template when I stumbled upon this All4FreeHere. This doesn’t just offer free templates but also free fonts, scripts and many other valuable resources that you don’t need to pay for. It’s a free catalog website that provides a list of things that are free and cheap. For those who are saving even a buck for oil, I think this site is for you. This also has an entrecard so you could be very well become EC buddies.

My Life Verse

Dear Lord, teach me to understand the timing of Your great will...

A Time for Everything

Book of Ecclesiastes

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Ride Money Carpet

I never believed before that blogs could be literal gold mines. My aunt was actually prodding me to start a blog when I was having my vacation-study in Korea. I had lots of free time there to maintain my blog and update its contents everyday. But I was stubborn. Earning from blogging is just too good to be true. It is also too easy to be real. Now I am regretting. I should have started my blog since the blogosphere was just in its inception. I was late in entering this rat race. But this blog is definitely reaching the stars with its ability to generate profit for its owner. It is a Paid to click blog, full of advertisements and links to services that could lend an opportunity to bloggers to earn big bucks. If you want to augment your income from accepting opps from payu2blog or from whatever site, visit Reaching the Stars blog and you might find additional ways to earn money.

Can You Catch a Fly with a Pair of Chopsticks?

Filipino children are generally fascinated by chopsticks. When I was young, I used banana-Q sticks as chopsticks to eat ramen and canton. 15 years had passed and I lived in a country where chopsticks are used in picking up foods...
There is a Chinese saying that if you can catch a fly using a chopstick, you could do anything. And I cannot pick even a chunk of radish using those two metal rodlets. T__T So I browsed the net on how to properly hold a pair of chopsticks when I stumbled upon PuNiaoPuNiao blog. She is Chinese, obviously, and her blogs are about things Chinese and Japanese. I think her blog is also a money-making one. Though there never really is a reference on using chopsticks properly, I think this site was helpful to practice some Hanja characters I know. The layout of this site is quite good, not cluttered, simple—just like the Chinese. I also adore the banner message:
Chopsticks: A delicate hand and a patient mind will ultimately nourish your soul.
