I'm playing tagged for the first time! MsRay tagged me.

Here's the 10th photo on my 10th folder here in my office computer. It's a poster that I saved when I was searching about conflict resolution few years ago. It qualifies as a photo, right?

The little prints indicate:

put downs
bringing up the past
making excuses
not listening
getting even

I Love-hate You

I love-hate the world wide web. It just makes things a lot easier. (It really is a small world after all.)

It is an instant friend, your bestfriend that you can turn to, whether you are happy or sad. Create your blog and pour your thoughts out to the world. Nevermind if the world won't listen. Join forums and you get to have new friends. Find online opportunities; just make sure it is not a scam.

Now the downsides. There are pranksters and hackers. (I do not do my shopping and banking online. It would take a lot of convincing for me to do so.) Plagiarists are everywhere. Now this. You join a forum and discover something. Accidentally. And you wish you didn't read about it. Yeah, ignorance is bliss. But well, knowledge (or the truth, whatever it is?) is freeing.

So, I do love-hate the internet. In any way, I am still writing. My thoughts. A little guarded, though. Not that I have to hide anything. It's like sharing a part of yourself to the public. And who knows who'll get to read this.

Thank you!

Thanks a lot
yuuki for these twin awards.

As you know, I'm still a newbie blogger finding my way around :)

I'm passing it on to:

The rules for these awards are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

7-11 Bigbite Match

Like hotdogs? Then go to the nearest 7-11 for this hotdog-eating contest.
I watched Umagang Kay Ganda this morning (redundant?)and kept laughing at the guys who tried eating the sandwiches. No, i don't dream of winning this contest. I won't even dare join coz I'm a slow eater and don't want to lose my poise:P

Here's an announcement from the site

Due to popular demand, the 7-Eleven Big Bite Match is shifting its schedules. To make it easier for you guys to enter the contest, 7-Eleven has made this even 3.5 times longer by extending the contest into 6 day a week event instead of the original Friday-Saturday schedule. You may now test your gastronomical fortitude from Mondays to Saturdays, from 11AM to 6PM!

Wanna go during your coffee break? GO! Wanna go during your lunch break? GO! Wanna go in between classes? GO! Wanna go after hitting the gym? BY ALL MEANS, GO! More time means you can bring more people to join the contest with you! Wanna bring your dad who absolutely adores hot dogs but can never really justify eating five of them in a row? HE HAS A REASON NOW! Wanna bring your entire barkada to see which one does it the fastest? BRING EVERYONE! Make it a family event!

Please be careful though! I read about a contestant (international event) who died of choking in an eating contest.
