The 70s

Another reupload.
The original video I uploaded many years ago cannot be viewed in my own country anymore so I had to re-edit the video and upload it again.
Have a wonderful time listening to some of my favorite ballads from the 70s.



It's been a while since I've posted anything in my blog.
A lot has happened during my absence.
People passing away.
Ups and downs. Can't help but feel melancholy thinking about them.
My house had major plumbing repairs, which was stressful. The old plumbing in my home's ground floor all had to be replaced. Decided to cut the old plumbing from the main tank, and installed external plumbing instead because I didn't want to break the walls of my house. Houses (walls) are made of concrete here in the Philippines. It'll be too much work, stressful and expensive to break the walls just to replace the plumbing inside.
 Labor and cost of materials accelerated the graying of my hair 😨 
Preoccupied with the family biz as well.
Had to update and tune our machines so they'll function smoothly and productivity will become higher.
 I wish I win the lotto, so I can kick away all the anxiety and just relax....with hot men. Hahaha! πŸ˜†



Recently had my hair shaven. It's growing back now.
There were zits on my scalp, especially on the back of my head.
It's easier to apply zit cream with shorter hair or no hair at all.
The zits are starting to go away. Thank goodness! I hate zits 😑
I'm too old to have zits. I'm already ummm....30. LOL!
Fine! I'm 43! But don't tell anyoneπŸ˜…
It was probably the shampoo I was using which caused the breakouts.
That's all for now, and if anyone is still visiting my blog (which I doubt), I wish you
a wonderful day/evening. Mwah!😘

Love Songs 2000-2010

Uploaded a new music video countdown because
the video with the same theme (love songs and ballads from the early 2000s) which I uploaded many years ago won't play in my own country anymore πŸ˜“
That old video had more than 600k views. Oh well...


Anyway, I hope you enjoy this new medley of 25 love songs and ballads from
the very 1st decade of the 21st century.
I know I have said this numerous times in my previous blogs, and I will say it agan,
time really does fly by so fast.
Have fun watching, listening and reminiscing 😊

Nightly Routine

This is how dusty the area I live in has become. 


In the last 3 years, a lot of new rice mill businesses (aside from the old ones) have started operating in my town, which meant dust, dust and more dust! 😨


Anyway, nothing a little dusting off and some wiping action can't fix.
It's good exercise by the way πŸ’ͺ


Shiny and clean again πŸ˜‰


Now it's time for your blogger to rest.
Take a shower too.
Wanna join? LOL!
I think I'm too old to be cracking such jokes πŸ˜†


Have a wonderful day/evening πŸ˜Š

The Prettiest of Them All

It's pageant season in the Philippines.
Pageants for some reason, are quite popular in this country.
It's like a national pastime along with boxing and basketball.
Here are the ladies competing in Binibining Pilipinas (Ms. Philippines) 2018,
which happens to be the "grandmama" of all pageants here in the Philippines. 


There are a lot of beautiful women competing.
I think #20 is really pretty.
#38 is also beautiful.
So, who is your bet for the "Universe?" 
Best of luck to all the ladies 😊

Flashback

Haven't done one of these in ages.
The last countdown I made was way back in 2013 
featuring movie theme songs from the 80s.
This time around we are visiting the 90s.
Not really my favorite decade, but at least it had some great movies and songs.


The video features a medley of 25 movie theme songs
starting with the upbeat and then transitioning to ballads & love songs.
Do you agree with my top 10?
Have a wonderful time listening & reminiscing πŸ˜Š

Howdy!

Just wanted to say "Hello!" 
I was supposed to publish this last month, but I forgot to do so.
Your blogger is getting old ya know?! πŸ˜…


I had my driver's license renewed first week of October.
The total amount I paid was 727.26 pesos ($14) which included a late penalty fee of 75 pesos.
My license expired last week of September πŸ˜›
As I had expected, i.d. cards weren't available.
The receipt will serve as my license for the time being.
This problem (shortage of driver's license i.d. cards) has been going on for almost 2 years if I'm not mistaken.
One of the employees at the LTO (Land Transportation Office) told me to return on the 24th of November to follow up on my license.
Crossing my fingers that my i.d. will be available by that time.  


This also happened to me last month.
Yup! It looks disgusting. It was painful as well.
I had a zit on my scalp. I popped it. It got bigger the day after which as I was brushing my hair, accidentally hit with my brush. Ouch!
I had just finished cleaning it with an antiseptic solution when the photo was
taken, hence the brown color on my scalp πŸ˜–


It took a week for the wound to close and heal.
Darn zit! 
I think it's time for me change my shampoo πŸ˜„
Have a wonderful day.

Bored...erline

Bored, old and....hungry. LOL!
Been a while since I last blogged huh?
Yup! I love that song too. Who doesn't? 😊



Yes, I am addicted to video games.
Been hooked on it since I was 13.
Here are some of the consoles I own.
Missing is the Sega Megadrive which I've given to my nephews when I
moved on to my very first Playstation.


And here are the current games that are keeping me from going out
of my house especially on weekends. Hehe! πŸ˜‹


If you love video games, we will certainly get along very well.
Thanks for dropping by my blog.
Have a wonderful day!!!😊

Restless

When sleep evades me.....again 😏
Did this a few nights ago.
Found it difficult to sleep, so instead of getting frustrated, I dubbed! LOL! 



It has been a while since my last blog.
I've been busy during the last couple of months.
So if anyone is still reading my blog, I want to greet you a
wonderful day! 😊

Another Project

Another home improvement project.


Decided to enclose my garage because I've had enough of the rain getting my vehicle wet.


 This country has one of the most trying weather and climate.
 If it isn't super hot and humid, it's raining.


It rains 8 months a year. Torrential rains. Thunderstorms. Typhoons. Geesh!


At first I thought of purchasing new motorized garage doors but
my iron gate is still in good condition and I didn't want it to go to waste.


Installed analok sliding windows on the side of the garage.


 Polycarbonate sheets on the panels above the windows. 


Polycarbonate sheets on the gate to keep the dust and rain away, and for privacy as well.


A new coat of paint on the gate and it's finished!


What's next? 
My fence, but I'll do it once the monsoon season is over.
Have a wonderful day :-)

Project

I'm almost done with the interior repainting of my home, the final area which is the master bedroom.
It should have been finished months ago but I had to let go of my painter for a period of time so he can repaint a family member's house that was in dire need of a refresh.

Master bedroom is split in half.
This is the area currently being worked on.
This half serves as my home office. 




I've chosen the color powder blue. It's like a mix of gray and blue. Not too bright/light.
Much calmer. More soothing.
Pardon the mess. They're part of the process :-)


The room's color back in 2003.
Very juvenile.
Time flew by so fast.

Speaking of time flying by, I saw this photo in a very old USB stick I found while I was boxing my stuff. 
A photocopy of my old driver's license.


 I'm only 171 cm around 5'7" tall.
Why am I not tall? Is it because I seldom drank milk when I was kid?
But I'm lactose intolerant. Ewww!
 Huhuhu! I wish I was at least 180 cm. Here I go again.
Oh fairy gaymother, please grant my wish. Hehe!
51 kg. So skinny back then.
If I went back in time, my 2002 version will most likely find it difficult to recognize me ;-)

Nostalgia

The heat wave is becoming unbearable.
Imagine enduring temperatures of 36 degrees and above, and heat indexes of 39 to 40+ degrees Celsius which is about 100+ degrees Fahrenheit. Gosh!
I didn't want to immediately turn on the air conditioner when I got home so I decided to take a late afternoon drive around town.


I stopped by my old high school building which apparently has been turned into a university extension.
I haven't visited it in a very very very loooooong time.
I'm pleased to see the acacia tree still standing.
The parking lot used to be unpaved when I was still studying there.
Now it's so neat and orderly.


The building looks so old.....because it is old! 
It's "ancient." LOL!
They have air conditioners now?
Back in the day, the rooms only have a limited number of electric fans. 
Some of us even brought and used hand fans to deal with the heat.
Sosyal may aircon na sila. Dati nag-aagawan pa kami sa electric fan.
Nagbabaon pa nga ako ng pamaypay eh. Hehe!


Right across the former high school building stands what used to be the elementary school building which has been turned into the parish church's living quarters/office.
I didn't go inside because there were people giving me stares while I was taking pictures.
The school transferred its elementary and high school departments to a different district during the mid 1990s by the way.


Right beside what used to be the elementary school building is the parish church.
(St. Martin of Tours Parish church)


The school I went to is a very religious catholic school. 
A mass is always held every first Friday of the month and during important dates in the catholic calendar which students are required to attend.


When I was a kid, I used to hang around this monument after school with my classmates having "merienda" while waiting for the family driver to pick me up. Oh the memories.


The sun is finally setting.
 Time for me to head out before the gates are closed.
Have a nice day :-)
