Have some habhab?

Having browsed through some of my old photos, I've found a few ones of myself eating Pancit Habhab during the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon. This is the 'hardcore' way of eating it. They say, you really haven't been to Lucban if you have not eaten Pancit Habhab the Lucban way - you just have to eat it with your head bent down to be able to suck the noodles straight from the banana leaf and careful not to spill them all over your pretty (or handsome) face =)

Quezon is a a nearby town of Cavinti, Laguna. You can get to Lucban from Cavinti in 10 minutes by jeep. Cavinti is by the way, our province. It is a small town next to Pagsanjan, merely a 3hour-drive from Manila.

If you wanna try Pansit Habhab, you can try it at any Buddies Branches ----but if you wanna experience the real thing, then go to Lucban and have it the Habhab way.

Wheatgrass Drink

I have come across this channel which replays an ad endlessly re:wheatgrass and its benefits. I was convinced! So I purchased a wheatgrass powder drink and plan to add this to my daily diet. I was contmeplating on getting the live wheatgrass at first and thought of juicing it myself but it's too time-consuming for me. What are the benefits of wheatgrass?

1) Life-Sustaining Complete Food

Wheatgrass is a concentrated source of health-giving nutrients. One serving delivers 17 kinds f amino acids, 13 vitamins, 10 minerals, fiber, chlorophyll and enzymes. You may also check

2) An easy way to eat Veggies

I love veggies, I can eat veggies for a week without feeling deprived of food. But then, you can't avoid but dine-out every now and then.

It is estimated that 15 lbs. of wheatgrass is equal to 150 lbs. of garden vegetables in nutritional value.

3) The King of Alkaline Food, Helps maintain PH Balance of the Body

According to one website, Chlorophyll can cure, help to cure, or improve burns, leg ulcers, trench mouth, tonsillitis, peptic ulcers, several types of vaginitis, urinary bladder diseases, high blood pressure, colitis, tooth decay, arthritis, athlete's foot, constipation, hay fever, rectal fissures, anemia, gas and "acidic" bowels, stomach and intestinal problems, laryngitis, ear problems and impetigo.

> Plants don't have blood, but they have something called chlorophyll instead. Amazingly, chlorophyll resembles hemoglobin in human red blood cells very, very closely.
> Since chlorophyll resembles hemoglobin so much, your body can quickly absorb it and utilize it to nourish your blood.
> Chlorophyll has strong anti-bacterial properties, which help to fight off infections inside your body.

Most of us have acidic body due to acid-forming foods, negative emotions and stressful lifestyle. Too much acid wastes hinder absorption of nutrients. Wheatgrass can neutralize acids more than most other fruits and vegetables.

4) Helps Prevent Cancer
Wheatgrass protects you from and fights against cancer. It has the highest level of ABSCISSIC ACID(whatever that is) due to its unique growing method.

5) Enhances Wound Healing, Good for The Skin Too

In World War II, wounded soldiers used chlorophyll deriviates topically and noticed loss of odor in foul-smelling wounds, faster healing and drying effect of pus and abscesses. Some legs are even saved from amputation. It is also useful to chronic ulcers and impetigo.

6) Great internal deodorant

IN a study reorted in the Journal of the American Geriartic Society in 1980, chlorophyll effectively controlled b.o. and fecal odor in 62 nursing home patients. Similarly, it is found that chlorophyll can be as good as any deodorant. It is discovered that chlorophyll extracts can neutralize offensive odors in foods, alcohol, and tobacco. Also, in patients and volunteers, it effectively neutralized bad breath, body odor from perspiration, menstrual odors and foul-smelling urines and stools.

I have purchased mine from a cable channel for 1,020 good for 30 days. Live wheatgrass can also be purchased at BIZU branches for 120/tray. You need a wheatgrass juicer for this which may cause you almost 4k. I inquired ealier and was told that I would need 3 servings of wheatgrass for a week so a total of P360 a week. I believe either Fruit Magic or Big Chill serves a shot of wheatgrass too. Try it!

Twilight Saga vs. The Last Vampire Series

Watched Twighlight yesterday and loved every part of it. Though I have not read the book yet, I can say that the storyline is similar or must say, comparable to Christopher Pike's The Last Vampire. The only differences - 1) The scene in the Twilight movie is told through the human's point of view (so I'd think the book or Book 1 should I say,is narrated the same way) while the latter is the opposite, the story is told in the eyes of a vampire - how cool is that?! 2) The main character in Twilight is Bella, a human while in The Last Vampire, it's Alisa, a vampire.

I think Christopher Pike's The Last Vampire would make an excellent movie too. I love Vampire stories. I have read Christopher Pike 14 years ago and I'd love to read it again. If you loved Twilight, you would love The Last Vampire!

Earn Money online Part 2

My account has been running for 3 days and upon checking, I now have almost $2. This is too good to be true and I hope this is not a scam. Well my HS schoolmate has received her cheque from ttg already. I still want to see it(lolz!). What do I have to lose anyways, it's free and 'clicking' is addictive hihihi(lalo na sa ofc).
Keep those $$$s comin' .

Earn Money online

I and my honb are trying to find the best way (or easier hehe)to earn $$$ online. My HS schoolmate emailed me about this site which pays you for every ad clicked. Cool eh? No cash outlay is needed but don't expect a alot from it either. It's called GPT or "Get-2-paid" program. Here's how it works..

Step 1

1) Just like any other website, you have to sign up first by going to:

2. Click Personal Account

3. Click the 'Sign Up Now' button.

4. Choose your Country

5. Choose the Account Type. Under Personal Accounts, click the Personal Starter and then click the 'Next' button

6. Fill out the 'Account Owner Contact Information'

If it asked you this question - Will any transaction and/or action of this new account be directed by some individual or entity other than you (i.e. a Third Party)? Select 'No'.

When you are done, set aside and proceed to STEP 2. It's okay if your Alert Pay account is still not unverified. It's optional.

Step 2:

Now, once you have signed up in Alert Pay, we can now start with the program:

You can register by clicking the link below:

When you're done, just simply log-in your account


Then, click on the 'View Ads' tab beside 'My Account'. Since you are a new user, it will prompt you to verify your age by letting you fill out your birth date. STEP 4:

You will see the links listed below, click one AD at a time. Each AD will be displayed to you for 20 seconds. Please make sure that you will only click one AD at time, as the other AD fee will not be credited to your acccount.

Wait for the 20 seconds timer to expire. You can also minimize the window if you wish to surf other web pages. When it expires, you will see 'DONE' on top of your browser with a green check. This means that, your account has been credited for viewing the page.


Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you finish clicking the ADS listed.


Once you have finished clicking all the sites, you can verify if your earnings have been credit by clicking th 'My Account' tab. Your earnings will be reflected on the 'Balance' portion of your Account Status.

Your account should accumulate $10.00 for you to be able to cash out.


To multiply your earnings, you need to CLICK EVERY DAY and REFER EVERY DAY (although not required).

NOTE: You do not need to be a PREMIUM member to receive a check payment. Even FREE members are eligible to redeem their earnings.

I have just signed up today so if you ask me, I haven't really earned anything yet(but I saw my friend's earnings). I tried signing up using my smartbro modem but it kept saying 'Modem has been used for another internet connection'. So I signed up using Safeway's internet connection instead (sssh). I am soo tempted to proceed to Step 3 but it says that once you started it, there's no way to stop the ads from popping(or something like that) so do not do it in your workplace okay?!

Here's what your potential earnings would be:

$.0050 per ad x 50 = $.25 earnings per day (without referral)$.0025 per ad when your referral also click the ads.$.0025 x 50 = $.125/day (just from your referral)

If you have 10 referrals you will earn $1.25/day from them

Let's say a lot of your friends signed up also. For example you got 20 referrals or 30? or 100?

It's up to you to compute.

The minimum payout in this program is $10.00. It's so easy to earn.especially if you have at least 4 or more referrals already.

What are you waiting for!!! SIGN UP!!! It's all FREE!!!

It ain't a lot but still better than nothin'. ;p Patience is a must!

Are you destined to be overweight?

I found this link from Faye and got curious. I tried to answer the questions as honest as's the outcome...

You Are Destined to Struggle With Your Weight

Like most people, you find it a little difficult to stay at at weight you're comfortable with.

If you change a few habits and make food less important, you may find the struggle hardly exists anymore.
