The ugliest photo of Chico is from Cherry Dean while Glace Ocampo sent in the ugliest photo of Delamar. Chico should post a before and after picture to redeem themselves. Hehe.

Speaking of making money online, I have started to check my current link partners if I am still linked in their sites. It's just disappointing that most of them deleted my link already. By the way for those who are interested in exchanging links, please message me back. Better if you will link my blogs first so I can easily link you back. To those who are linked to my old personal blog, please update my link from Makoy's Memoirs of a Certified Blogger to Makoy's Musicology. Months ago, I have converted it to a music blog.

After our Sentosa get away, we were invited on the spot by Karla to go to their place (and to cook, huwat). We said yes and we bought some spaghetti ingredients at Giants.
Anyway, I was the head chef with my two assistants Chona and Jojo.

Finally, my birthday is over and I am very grateful to those who have greeted me. To those who forgot, "Mga panget kayo." Hehe.
On my birthday, I have planned to swim and to attend the mass to say my birthday prayer. The night before my birthday, I was taking a hot shower when suddenly I hurt my back. I was shampooing my hair when something snapped. I woke up that morning still with the pain in my back so my swimming was definitely out of the picture. It was past 11 in the morning so it was almost lunch time. I still have some leftover Sinigang na Hipon but with few kangkong. I went to Fair Price to buy some kangkong then re-heat the sinigang with the additional kangkong. While re-heating, I also cooked "Patola with miswa and Chicken Balls."
After my brunch, I took a bath then went on with my TV marathon. By 5 P.M., I prepared to go to the church. On my way to the church, I went to check for cakes. It was disappointing that the Black Forest cake costs S$10. Luckily, I saw a chocolate muffin that only costs 80 cents. Hihi. I arrived the church 15 minutes early and there was an ongoing Rosary prayer. After I said my prayers, I just waited there for the mass to start.

Anyway, I have friends and officemates that have tried applying for PR. However, most of them did not pass. I only have one officemate that passed. According to the forums and observations, you will definitely get approved if you are married. The Singapore government is looking for individuals that will stay long in Singapore and would eventually become a citizen.
I'm not sure if salary has a major factor in the disapproval. I heard from a friend that someone got disapproved even his salary is high. Most of those that I know that did not pass belongs to the "S Pass" classification (including me). From the letter that I received, the other reason is the change in residence. I think before applying, you should at least have stayed in your current house for one year.

Monday morning, I woke up earl then had my breakfast prepared by the mommies in our group. I had some fried egg, luncheon meat and rice. After that, I went to my room then wore my swimming trunks. I applied some tanning spray then went to the pool to try again tanning for the second time. It was a super hot morning and I was excited to darken my skin. I re-sprayed again myself then waited patiently for the burning effect. Haha. Tanning was actually a hard feat. Thank God, I brought a cold soda in a can.

Three weeks ago, I went to mass at the Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea. I have finally located the church and had decided to go to mass there every Sunday. Novena Church is quite far from my place and it is quite hot there.
So far, I am enjoying my mass there. I just have to get used with the new environment especially the way they sing. It's just different from all the churches in Singapore that I have been to.
Last week was fun at church. I am also grateful that they had the time to collect cash donations for the victims of the latest calamities. This morning's mass, they have announced that they had collected almost 12,000 SGD. That will go to the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Laos. Thanks to those who donated.

Aside from Survivor, I have watched "The Biggest Loser" and "The Amazing Race." Two of my favorite reality shows before.
Moving away from the reality shows, there are many US TV series that returned these past few weeks. To name a few: Brothers & Sisters, CSI, CSI: NY, Desperate Housewives, Ghost Whisperer, Grey's Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother. There are also new shows that premiered. I enjoyed watching Accidentally on Purpose, Cougar Town, Drop Dead Diva, Glee and the Vampire Diaries.

Anyway, I have been feeling lonely these past few days. I have been missing home and my family. Yesterday, I received a text message from my sister that my mom sounds sick. I was worried that I called her. Apparently, she can’t sleep for two days. She has been busy cleaning our house. Our housemaid hasn’t returned yet since Friday. She’s so stressed. My other sibling was in ABS-CBN yesterday volunteering. I just told her to go home early to check our mom. She just gave some sleeping pills to my mom and she was doing great this morning.
I also phoned my eldest sister. Her daughter’s baptism is scheduled this 11th and I can’t go to the ceremony. The fare is too expensive. Since I am also a god parent, I asked her on what gift she wants for my niece. She liked this “tushy wushy” cloth diaper that is a replacement for the disposable diapers. I might buy 12 pieces.

To my readers, I am seeking your help for donations and generosity to volunteer. Some parts of the affected areas haven't received any relief goods and are in need of clothing, food, water, medicines and blankets. I am also asking for your prayers to the affected families in the Philippines and also to our neighbor countries that were affected by the same typhoon.
Thank you to those who have helped. The Filipino people appreciates all of your help and generosity.
For your donations, you can visit this link for more details on how you can help.
