Getting Married

Let me start this blog by sharing something about one of the special days of my life – My wedding day. I just turned 25 years old when I officially got married...

Pizza Mania

In the office, we always crave for pizza. Sometimes we treat ourselves with pizza after receiving our salary or we wait for our boss's pizza treat..

Exploring Baguio City

Baguio City is one of the tourists' favorite places in the Philippines because of the cold weather, popular tourist spots and friendly people...

34 Weeks and Dreadful

Lately, I've been worried on many things about my pregnancy stage. I am on my 34th week and I'm starting to feel uneasiness in my body. The last time I checked I weigh 49 kilograms already. One thing that bothers me is the size of my tummy. I think I'm carrying too big baby bump that is not proportion for my height. Someone advised me before that I should not let my baby grow too much inside my womb because I am a small girl and I aim for normal delivery. Yes, I really pray for normal delivery and I'm still surprise why this tummy blew up this huge! The need to limit more on my beloved sweets is a must.

Another thing that's giving me difficulty is the little contraction that I'm enduring these past days. It's like a dysmenorrhea feeling or whatsoever. I'm getting paranoid that what if any minute from now my water bag breaks and it's not yet time. I dread for preterm delivery and this is the stage that I should be very careful because baby is still in 8th month. I'm just thinking that it's just a Braxton Hicks contractions which is normal. But I still need to make sure I am safe for 3 to 4 more weeks for the sake of my baby's health.

Work and daily travel routine is giving me stress and fatigue. The bigger my tummy is, the more tiresome I get but I don't want to stay at home yet nor start my maternity leave. My OB said I can still go to work for as long as I can manage. Baby's movement is definitely stronger now and it's giving me little pain sometimes. I feel that baby's jabs and kicks are lesser than the usual. Now it's more on stretching or wiggling because her space inside is getting tighter as she grows.

The third trimester is indeed the most tiring stage of pregnancy. Many thoughts and 'what ifs' are occurring in my mind but prayers are powerful and positive thinking is a great help.

Software Applications I cannot Live Without

Nowadays, most of us depend on many software applications to do our work with accuracy and ease. In my case, I cannot complete a task with out Internet or  lack of  software applications that I use everyday, whether installed or web based.

Here are the applications I cannot live without:

MS Office
I am more familiar with Windows Operating System and Microsoft office is very important. MS Word is widely used in offices as well as Power Point and Excel Worksheet. The first thing I open in the morning is my MS Outlook. It is necessary for me to check my emails first before anything else.

Adobe Dreamweaver
I use this editing software mainly to fix some website/web page errors or creating mailer templates and landing pages. I also use MS Front Page but I find it messing up my codes sometimes. Dreamweaver is more pro and easy.

Adobe Photoshop
This is for image enhancing, photo retouching and for some tasks that need graphics editing. The Adobe Photoshop is good for editing high resolution images in different format. There are lots of things that can be done in this software application. To get familiar with Photoshop, you need to be patient and of course more practice. 
Acrobat Pro
Editing PDF files is also important for me and I do that in Acrobat Pro. Aside from that, you can use this software in making fill up forms, convert, edit, combine high quality PDF files and more.

Cute FTP
An FTP client used to transfer files in the server. At home, I use Filezilla FTP client because it's free.

This is a screen capture software that I use to capture website bugs for reporting purposes, making step by step instruction for better understanding and many more. It is very easy to use and execute. I like it better than print screen. 

A web based email marketing software for to creating and sending regular mailers to our subscribers.

An online form management system. I use this to create forms that can be publish online to be filled up with our vendors, freelancers, etc.

My boss would freak out if he doesn't see  us online on skype. This is where our main communication with our boss takes place. With skype, he can chat, call, bug or even video call us whenever and wherever he wants to. We also use this software in communicating with our clients around the globe.

Yahoo Messenger
Anyone knows what is this software all about. But at work, this is necessary to communicate with  our freelance guys who do not use Skype. 

Word Web
I have been using this English thesaurus and dictionary for years already. But sometimes, if I am not satisfied with the answer, Google is always there to save the day!

A media player that I use for entertainment purpose. Working while listening to music is relaxing for me. I usually open my winamp when I feel sleepy or irritated with boss and other people :)

All these software are installed or accessed in my office computer as also to my personal computer at home. The best thing about my job is that I can carry it anywhere as long as I have a computer (with all these applications) and internet.

Facebook Timeline

Have you updated your Facebook profile yet? The new change in Facebook shows a timeline of life highlighting our activities and photos. It has a cover which appears at the top of our profile that looks like a website header or banner.

The timeline turns our profiles into a scrapbook of our lives. Anyone viewing it can look back on our activities from the start. I find it actually cool because you can track and reminisce on all your activities over the years and if you're catching up your old friends, it would be easier to know what they were up to for the past years.

This feature will be rolled to the public over the next few weeks but if you are like me who's eager to try it, click here for simple instruction on how to get it.

Here's how my updated Facebook timeline looks like:
