I got accepted in PPP!

Whew... After so many times of applying and re-applying, my blog finally got accepted in PayPerPost. It is soooo awesome, really! Now, not only will I be able to write about the things that I love, I will also be earning out of it!

I started blogging about a year ago, and I can still remember those petty posts that I write before... (giggles..) Blogging has become an outlet for my crazy ideas and weird imaginations. It has also become my diary when I cannot have somebody to listen to my babbles and balderdashes. I blog to express my sentiments, to rant about things, and to have something where I can pour out my madness to. It worked, really.

Blogging for money has occurred to me when a friend introduced to me PayPerPost. Then I learned that blogging is never a waste of time. You get paid to blog about interesting stuffs through Pay Per Post. PPP provides bloggers with so many great opportunities, and, yup, they pay you for it. Amazing, isn't it?

Now that blogging has already become my hobby, earning will be very easy then. So, if you haven't signed up for PPP yet... Hey, what else are you waiting for? Money is just a few clicks away!

Office face-lifting

Jeesshh... That was like years! I was out the blogosphere for almost a month, but it was like forever! Oh well, now I'm back. Did anybody miss me? I, sure as heavens, miss everybody!

Actually, I've been also busy lately. Busy, I say? A whole lot, really. I even have not had enough sleep. I guess, I just really have to bear with it by now, because I'm expecting worse things to come.

Anywayz, we just gave our office a whole new skin! Yup, and that is, a really whole new look. I was really pleased with the result of our efforts, and I'm very thankful that I'm surrounded with the most creative and talented people in the whole wide world (wheew.. haha). Here are some pics taken during the face-lifting of the office.

It was chaos at first...

then, it started...

Argey did his thing...

then it became like this...

and this...

the result? taaddaaa...!

See? The once plain, cream-colored office, now evolved to a colorful, ingeniously-painted one. Some students have already seen our new office, and everytime they come in, I can always see the amazement in their faces. Our adviser is also very pleased. She even said that the university president should really see it. Weeew... so I guess, we've set another trend... haha...

Another Brown's Brain-Teasers!

Weeeh...!!! I'm already halfway through another Dan Brown's novel. And again, it's awesome! The Da Vinci Code caused so many eyebrows to raise during its release. The Catholic Church reacted on the novel because they are afraid that the people's faith will be affected. The Hollywood even made a movie based on the novel, and the church tried to ban it. I remember my aunt warning me not to see the movie or even get hold of the novel. But that eventually just stirred up my curiosity. I've been wanting to read the intriguing novel, until my friend lent me a copy of it.

If Angels and Demons talks about Robert Langdon's adventures in breaking the mystery behind the enigmatic ambigrams, The Da Vinci Code tells about how Langdon solved the puzzling codes through anagrams.

An anagram (Greek anagramma 'letters written anew', passive participle of ana- 'again' + gramma 'letter') is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once. In the novel a clue was hidden using the following words:

O Draconian Devil!
Oh, lame saint!

Which later on, the readers will find out, actually means:

Leonardo Da Vinci
The Mona Lisa

Amazing! Isn't it? Some other examples are the words dormitory=dirty room; astronomer=moon starer; teachers=cheaters.. (laughs)

Another interesting part of the novel is the unlocking of the codes behind Leonardo Da Vinci's famous masterpieces, like The Mona Lisa and Madonna of the Rocks. Da Vinci is indeed a brilliant person, and a homosexual at that. Yup, Da Vinci is actually a homosexual. Some of his famous works relate to the concept of the sacred feminine, including the Last Supper.

Anyways, I am yet about to discover so many other interesting things. I'm quite excited to finish this novel.

Is this a sign?

The Philippines had always been a rich agricultural country, that realizing its people are now facing a great dilemma over rice shortage just sounds really absurd. How can an agricultural
country be facing such shortage?

Never did I thought that this time will come when I will have to witness the chaotic crowds of people waiting for their rice rations. The government is now providing rice subsidy to the people- offering them NFA rice at lower cost. The once 25 to 30 pesos-per-kilo-worth of commercial rice, now mounts to 45 to 51 pesos per kilo. Imagine the increase? Shocking, indeed!

The question now is, when will this dilemma end? Will a point come when people will do all sorts of things just to put something on their stomach? How long are Filipinos going to bear with the mayhem over a little ration of rice? Is this the end?

Religious critics found this economic crisis a sign. Yup, one of the signs of God's return- the last judgment. My aunt even told me that she fears that the time will come when people will have to be stamped with the devil's sign on their foreheads just to be able to have food for their family. I just laughed upon hearing this. It sounded like a crazy idea, but I found out that this is written in the Book of Revelations- the chapter in the Bible where all the predictions about the world are written.

Is this truly an indicator of the "end" of everything? Has God gotten mad already, that he decided to bring to an end everything in this world of sinners?

And along with this realization came my conceit. I then found myself wondering about my dreams. Will everything just end in an instant? Will I not be able to experience the life that I've been wishing to live? That's just it? (*sigh)

I just wish this rice famine will soon end. This isn't it, I know.... I pray...
