Top 5 Things to Give Your Girl This Christmas...(If you are on a budget)

1. Flower in a Pot: Why give her a dead flower that will die in days? Give her a live Rose or any flower  that she can water and take care of. Other than being relatively less expensive that buying a bouquet from e.bechavez, studies says that a bit of gardening relieves stress. So no more PMS-ing, cranky mornings and frequent LQ-ing it will just be you and her gushing at how your "baby" flower has grown awwww. Think: That Crazy little thing called love movie when Nam was given a Rose plant by P'sone.

Costs: Php 0-Php 300

Where to buy: Baclaran, Lazada, Tagaytay, Actually there are a lot of small plant stores you can buy from I'm sure you have once passed by 1 or 2. You can also ask your friendly neighbor if you could get a branch or two of his Kalachuchi or a seed or 2 of his Sunflower.

2. Make Her a Song: Easier said than done since not everyone has the talent or knack for it. BUT if you can pull this off, this will not cost you a sinlge singkong duling. You might even be able to get her to say yes even if you are not proposing. ;) 

Costs: Php 0-Php 30 (If you want to bribe your "backup singers" with some merienda after your performance)

3. Cook for Her: I had an ex once, and well we were both just students at that time so we don't have any money of our own but I remembered how I loved his random breakfast surprise complete with Ylang-ylang stolen from our friendly but totally clueless neighbor's house. It was nothing fancy but the gesture was beyond sweet. It would typically just consist of pancit canton, fried eggs and coffee if he has extra cash instead of Lucky me it would be Mi goreng. So, he would bring these to my room (with the permission of my mama of course) and It was always a pleasant surprise to wake up to the smell of food.
Costs: Lucky me pancit canton- Php 7.00
           Coffee: Php 7.00
           Egg: Php 6.00

4. Stolen Photo: BUT I just want to emphasize, make sure that she looks gorgeous in this stolen shot. Got it? Not eating, no nose picking, no yawning or what not. The goal is to get her to feel her beauty is effortless and that you are in very much at awe with it....or to that effect, you know what I mean. Now go to Tronix, print it in the biggest size possible as long as it won't pixilate then put in a frame. Toss in a cheesy note like: "to my one and only goddess." and you are good to go awww.. 

Costs: It depends on what size you want your picture to be prices may be around Php 200.

5. Books from Booksale: I myself am a frequent shopper at booksale. My favorites are 1. Old Magazines you can get one for as low as Php10.00 2. Archie comic books 3. Mandala books you can color.

They actually have a good and diverse selection of books so you will have a lot to choose from.

Maria's Edge Resort Review

Hindi nanaman ako makatulog! :) But it's a good thing dahil sa puyat minsan nangagaling ang motivation ko at oras ko to write (less sleep, more blogs ha?). Naubos na ng mga instik na tinuturuan ko kanina ang baon kong English kaya eto mag tatagalog na lang ako. 👌

Last May 27, 2017 na tuloy na din sa wakas ang aming family outing sa Maria's Edge Resort sa Los Baños Laguna. Sa pagkakaalam ko ung pinsan ko pa na nasa Saudi ang naka "discover" ng resort na ito at nung nakita namin ang pictures nya sa fb (https://www.facebook.com/Marias-Edge-Resort-120277261424681/)  kahit mas mura pa yung unang private resort na kinausap namin, ito na yung binook namin. 
Location:
Maria's Edge Resort is located in Jamaica Hills Los Banos Laguna. Malapit sa UPLB at along the highway lang kaya kung gusto mo pumunta sobrang accessible kahit wala kang private vehicle. 
From Alabang sakay ka lang ng pa UP college na bus like St. Rose. Then, malalaman mo pag malapit ka na pag nakalampas ka na…

ACADSOC online job

I have been with ACADSOC as a part time home based teacher for exactly a month and a half today and here are my thoughts about it:


How do I feel about working here?
The best thing about working in Acadsoc is the flexibility. Every week I plot my desired schedule. On Mondays, for example, I advise my TM (Team Manager) that I want to take Mondays-Fridays 7pm-11pm and take Saturdays and Sundays off.  And if I want to earn extra cash, I take Weekend classes too. 
The next best thing that I like about Acadsoc is that it makes a great part time job. you can do it at home with minimal tool investments: you just need a laptop and a decent headset. I use Plantronics with a noise cancelling feature.  
Lastly, It is fairly easy, teaching especially free talk feels like you are being paid to listen. Just be prepared with your list of open ended questions, sitback, relax and watch out for any grammar or pronunciation errors. Recap and give a few tips.
How long do you teach each student?

Paano Ba Magturo ng English Online (ESL Online Teaching)

Instik man, Koreano, Hapon, Vietnamese ang tuturuan mo, sa tingin ko pare pareho lang naman ang mga preparation at over all routine ng mga online ESL teachers. Nakaka 4 na company na ako ha pero halos walang hirap sa transition kasi sa tools lang at module nagkakaiba.
Freetalk

Dito talaga ako nahasa sa unang company ko sa TopTalk. So sa company na yun, pag sinabing free talk, bibigyan ka ng isang idiom per student, isa lang ha? Ito na ang bala mo for the rest of the 30 minutes na makikipagbalitaktakan ka sa kanila.

Example:
"The World is your Oyster". 

Ayon kay the free dictionary.com it means:
you have the ability and the freedom to do anything or go anywhere. 

When used in a sentence: 
Theworldisyouroysterwhenyou'reyoungand healthyandfreetogoanywhere.

So before, and kahit naman ngayon, ang technique ko para ma consume ko ang buong 30 minutes with minimal material ay ang mga sumusunod:

A. Introduction - 5-10 minutes:
Ano ang mga pwedeng itanong sa intro: 
What is your English name?…
