How to Get Comforable Sleep During Camp?

Hi friends, summer is here! When we say summer, it is always associated with the word camp.I am very much excited for our summer youth camp. But, let me share to you my experience of our so-called "mini camp" with my cousins. We had a mini camp and sleepover with my cousins at our rest house. We cooked our food using wood and we had enjoyable activities. We had a lot of fun games and we did a lot of crazy things. That was really fun and I'm looking forward for more of it this summer.

One thing about camp that you should take note is that you should take your best foam mattress with you. I am not a picky person, but I always make sure that I got a comfortable sleep during the camp. Camp is a fun and active activities, so make sure you have enough sleep to energize for the rest of the day.

Based on my experience, camp sites are different to your home. It is no longer your own room or even your not allowed to bring your bed with you. Foam mattress is the best solution. It's quite handy if you have your own car. I swear, charge it based on my experience. With only sleeping mat, it could be quite different and uncomfortable. So, better bring your mattress with you to enjoy your first night in the camp. Hahah I'm telling you this because I always suffer in this every camp.

Here I got some photo from our "mini camp" with my cousins last week. It's a little bit uncomfortable with our sleeping position, but we had fun.

after our sleepover, we had our hiking activity in the morning :)


Well, now looking forward for a bigger camp- yes! I'm very excited for our church's summer youth camp.And I hope, this time, it would be more comfortable.

Keep going everyone. Enjoy your weekend.

Weekdays Summer Getaways

Hi guys,I got this wonderful photographs from my weekday-getaway. Due to my job, I usually unwind and relax every weekend. But I'm glad that I got the chance to do some fun activities with my cousins and my churchmate.

In morning, I decided to help my churchmate to shoot the video for our upcoming camp. It is a montage video- sort of invitational video. I thank God for the production team who really did well in the shooting. Truly I had fun doing the video shoot. Though the weather is not good that day, but at least it didn't get worse. The video shoot is a success and I had fun!

 
 After we took the video shoot in the morning, then I headed to Abuno, Iligan City. It is 45 mins travel away from the city. This time I'm with my cousins. We spent our overnight so-called "camping" at out resthouse. It's not that very big, but the place is very relaxing and peaceful. In that place, I was reminded the basic way of life- the simplicity of life. In that place I am away from the usual things I used to do. I live without TV, Wifi, no water in the faucet ( we use deep well) and it's so lovely to hear the chirping of the bird.
In the next day, in the morning, we had a long walk and enjoyed our mountain escapade. Though the experience is tiring, but it is all worth it. I explored nature again.

Find ways to make a change in your everyday life. Have fun and enjoy your every "day". Keep going everyone. Happy weekend!

The Main Lies About Technical Devices

Contemporary technical devices comprise so many functions that we got used to the fact that camera should have a lot of megapixels in order to make shots of high quality and that products of Apple company are protected from viruses.

And because of these opinions and a great number of options it becomes difficult for us to distinguish what is true and what is false. I check customers’ opinions at wikitalks.com from time to time, to be more convinced about new gadgets and their real abilities.

When your phone has a lot of bars you think that the connection is perfect, but it is not true. It can only mean that you are somewhere close to the nearest tower. If a great number of people are as close to that tower as you then be ready that the connection won`t be that perfect anymore.


Defragmentation of a hard driver 

There is an opinion that if you are defragmenting the hard driver of your computer periodically, then it will work faster. The truth is that hard drivers can work faster even if they are overfilled.

If Windows system is installed on your computer then it is defragmented automatically and there is no use in your doing it manually.

The main negative consequence is that you can damage the driver and the service life of your device will be reduced.
  
The ratio of the number of megapixels and the quality of the camera 

You will be surprised but the fact that the more megapixels camera has the better quality of pictures you receive is absolutely wrong.

Quality of pictures depends not on the megapixels but on the quality of the lenses. So the camera with a large number of megapixels will be worse than a camera with good lenses, but small amount of megapixels.

Anti-virus

If you want to waste your money then you can buy an anti-virus scanner, but if you don`t then better don`t do it. Anti-virus programmer is either already installed on your computer as a basic one or you can be given an opportunity to download one for free, especially when you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista.

720p or 1080p?

Generally nobody sees the difference between 720 p and 1080p of the TV screen. It is really insignificant. When you sit very close then you will be able to see more spots. So if you are buying a new TV, you can save money by choosing 720 pscreen. Just place it in the way that you can sit further from it and you will notice no difference with that of 1080p.

Is new always better? So who determines whether the quality of the device is good or bad? The customers of course. They buy the device and even if it has some negative qualities they are ready to justify it because it is new and interesting. For instance, the short battery of modern gadgets is a great disadvantage.

Laptops and their charge

I think you often heard that if to leave your laptop plugged in, it will be burnt or spoiled. It is wrong because laptops have lithium-ion batteries and they don`t consume more electricity that they can take. So it is safe to leave the lap top plugged in even for the whole day. The only thing that can damage your laptop is the electricity failure.

A 90's Theme: A Throwback College Graduation Ball

Happy graduation. It's the day to celebrate and tell the world that you made it. To all the graduates of "Batch 2014", congratulations.

Being in college is one of the most exciting and most memorable days of our life.It lies between the childhood school years and the adulthood years. Graduation is the end of the journey you used to have and the start of another journey to walk in. I remember the days when I was in college where all the school work stress, tears and sweat just perfectly blend to my daily routine. It's just so amazing how we enable to surpass every obstacle that we go through despite everything. The time that we officially graduate, you had this feeling that our tormenting years are over.LOL.


So, graduation is a celebration. Get ready for your 90s fashion and outfits for the graduation ball. 90s theme would be a wonderful theme for today's batch of graduates. As we reminisce the colorful 90s style, you could also remember the past years that you were in your school years. And it's so exciting to see "Backstreet Boys", "Spice Girls'" trendy outfits come to life. It's going to be a super "throwback" party for all of you as you bring back all the 90s trends.

My college life and experiences was one of the most highlighted event in my life's timeline. It's a sort of colorful events in my life that I will never forget and when I look back, I would probably be happy and glad because I have all those great times in my life.

Keep going everyone. Get ready for summer. Enjoy!

Building up my Goals


Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. -Jim Rohn
Building goals... In life, you have to build goals to keep moving, people who have no goals are wanderers- they don't know where they are heading. Discipline is essential. Without discipline, no doubt, establishing your goals will never workout.

I decided to start up my goals. I started laying out my goals for 2014. Three months of 2014 are gone, but it's not too late to start up my goals.

 I so love this quote about building goals. *I don't own this photo. Thanks Google for this.

My "12-months" goal (1 year):
1. Go on a mission trip- it's either in our city or outside the country (why not?)
2. Develop my blog and experience great sales.
3. Paint at least 7 canvas paintings.
4. Published 4 kindle books.
5. Experience great miracle through reaching out people.
6. Enjoy teaching.
7. Do the house make over. (There are still many goals but I'll list 7 for now)

My "4 weeks" goals (a month):
1. Finish my kindle book.
2. Paint 1 acrylic in canvas artwork.
3. Jog and exercise- Earn some abs.
4. Talk to someone and share about Jesus.
5. Start preparing for my new job- teaching.
6. Read a book- Christian book.
7. Read 1 book in the Bible.
8. Go on a date. ( ahhaha actually this one is not included.)

My 1 day goal.
1. Talk to God. 
2. Read and do some morning devotion.
3. Exercise/ workout- go to the gym and play basket ball.
4. Create at least three pages of my kindle book.
5. And etc.

I am the person who easily get discourage (even if I haven't started yet) when things don't work according to my plans. So, I ask God to give  me wisdom and to strengthen me in fulfilling all these goals. I also pray that God will reveal to me- through my prayers- His goal for my life. I am very assured that when God said it, everything will come to pass.

Start dreaming big. Start believing and start building up your dreams. And the secret to the "fulfilled goals" is DISCIPLINE.

Keep going everyone and God bless.

Photography Connects the Present with the Past



What reminds you of home when you’re far away? What reminds you of youth? What inspires you to travel and to try new things?

Somehow, photography can be the answer for all the listed questions. I see it as the reason of so many trips happening and the main reminder of who we are and where we are from. 

If there were no New York photographers taking pictures of the Empire State Building or the 5th avenue, there were no people willing to go there and see it all live. Photography is this huge intermediate between people and places, present and past, inspirations and desires. You know there is a small chance of you traveling to Brazil but only looking at a cool picture of the Rio beach and listening to some Vanessa Da Mata songs, can make you feel like you’re there. Even if it is all happening for 10 seconds, a photograph can give you a sense of being in some other place than the one you’re at now.

When I said that photography is an intermediate between the present and the past, I meant the obvious, we all know. These images of you in the 4th grade or of your mom and dad getting married are connecting you with the past. That’s something that I find really impressive and it makes me appreciate photography.
 Time flies and when you’ll get really old you would love to look at pictures of yourself when you were young. You would love to connect with the young you and feel what you felt again. Even if you’re now 30 years old, I’m pretty sure you’re admiring your old photographs where you’re 17 and you’re simply careless and beautiful. I’m not saying that aging is bad, it is a vital component of our lives, but somehow you would love to be forever young. Photography has the power to freeze youth and then show it to you so you can remember it all, just like it was yesterday.


Photography is the art that connects the present with the past, it inspires people to travel and try new things. This is the art that can make your nostalgia feel better.

8 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Ignore Virtual Services for Business


If you are into virtual services for business and you want to know more information about this job check out this article. I've been a virtual assistant for almost three years now and I bet this article is pretty helpful. Check out this guest post from Regus Philippines.
In this digital age, a company would be eating someone’s dust if they are stuck in the dark ages. That is, they haven’t embraced yet the convenience and benefits of the internet whether for the exchange of information or for conducting business itself. In all likelihood, they probably don’t know all about virtual services neither those that are offered from different parts of the world nor those accessible only through the web.

Why do they matter? Well, why not find out some examples of such services:

·         Virtual Personal Assistant. Need someone to organise your calendar, sort out your files, respond to emails and takes care of other administrative tasks? If so, a virtual PA is what you need. Because he or she is web-based, you only need to pay them on a per-need basis and nothing else.

·         Stock Brokerage Services. Most businesspeople these days are trading stocks on the side, whether for personal or business reasons. Considering that you already have your hands full, you’ll need someone to handle the buying and selling of stocks; one that is knowledgeable about the market and all the processes involved. Where’s the best place to find one? The web.

·         Virtual Office. This might not be considered a service per se, but it still serves a very important function, especially if you get one that comes with other perks. Most virtual offices have a professional and impressive address, which can boost your company’s credibility. Add to this a multi-lingual receptionist, and you got yourself a fancy office for a fraction of a cost.

Still not convinced that virtual services are important to a business? Here are other compelling reasons not to ignore them:

1.    Save Money
It’s just two words that can make a huge difference, especially to small and medium-sized enterprises. How is this possible? Virtual services are just another form of outsourcing, but with a twist. This is because all chores are provided and handled over the net, significantly reducing overheads. Most service providers are also equipped with the tools they need to do their job, which means you don’t need to spend on office supplies and equipment. In general, outsourcing costs 50% less than in-house, full-time employees. You’ll save even more with virtual services.

2.    More Convenient
It takes forever to find the right people to employ. Recruitment process usually takes time, even if you use a staffing agency and once someone gets hired, you would have to orient or train them. With virtual services, however, you are assured that the person you hire is already trained and knowledgeable of the tasks ahead. They know what is expected of them so you can skip all other recruitment steps.

3.    No Limitations on Locations
Unlike in a traditional office setting, virtual services have no location limitations. A virtual PA, for example, will continue to carry out whatever tasks required of them even if you’re on a business trip. Although an in-house PA can do the same, the convenience and speed with which you can communicate with them may differ. This is especially true if you need to switch phone network just to make a call.

4.    More Flexible Working Terms
Virtual services are being offered per project, hourly, weekly or monthly, depending on your business needs. The work terms and conditions usually conform to your specific criteria and needs.

5.    Access to a Range of Expertise
Whether you’re looking for a consultant, PA, accountant, broker and the like, you will find exactly what you need on the web, and immediately. No need to go through the recruitment process of choosing from a lot of candidates because most virtual service providers have already specified their capabilities and experience on their resume, which leaves you to do just one thing — hire. So, if you want to hire an app developer so you can keep up with the continuing evolution of mobile apps just scour the internet.

6.    Allows for Multitasking
Depending on the services you hire, some people can do more than just take care of their primary tasks. A virtual PA, for instance, could also handle telephone answering, social media marketing, transcription and other roles. Suffice to say that they are willing to do more.

7.    Have Happier Employees
One of the top workplace trends in 2014 is great mobility. This refers to allowing employees to work from home. Apparently, telecommuting is more attractive than a standard benefit package for a lot of employees. And you know what they say about happy employees: they’re more productive and dedicated. Considering that the virtual services you hire probably follow a mobile arrangement, you are working with happy people.

8.    More Time
The best advantage of hiring such services is that you get to free up a lot of your time, which you can use anyway you want. You can choose to spend it to focus more on core functions or to have some fun.

You may never get to shake the hands of the people working for you from the other side of the world, but you see and get results. In the corporate world, they’re the only things that matter.
