    Prison Break

    Yeah, right…So I’ll be the last person on earth to know. I haven’t seen any episode of any season of Prison Break yet. I’m waiting for Honney to finish it and I’m gonna be borrowing her copy. I actually am not fond of watching series. See? I don’t even know what Smallville is all about until Superman came out 2 years ago. And based on what I’ve heard (and read) looks like I’d be loving Prison Break.

    American Idol

    I waited for the replay last Sunday. I swear, the last thing I would want to happen is to miss it (again). I was laughing so loud and who cares if my neighbors got disturbed? No other show could make me laugh like that than American Idol. The auditions are my favorite part. It’s worth the year-long wait.

    Blogging, continued...

    So, I finally registered for payperpost . After virtually attending Reyna's Online Money Making Skills class, I thought I have learned enough to get me started, at least.

    Signing up for payperpost is pretty easy. Basically, what they need to see is 20 posts in your blog in the past three months. Thanks God for making me so vulnerable in the past few weeks, it made me blog like crazy and got payperpost's nod. I got their response immediately after I registered. My blog has been confirmed.

    Why did I decide to join? Aside from the convincing power of my friend Honney who introduced me to this whole paid for blogging thing, I have seen a lot of bloggers doing PPP. Out of curiosity I started checking it and found out it is indeed for real. I admit I was a bit reluctant at first but well, I ain’t going to loose anything anyway, instead I thought I might gain something eventually, and I am taking the words of other bloggers for that.

    As a payperpost newbie, I started navigating their website. I thought I need to check what they want, their rules, et al. I am glad to have found out that they have got instructions that are not very complicated to follow and they do not require and ask so much just like the others. Being a new kid here, that’s all I want.

    The 7-hour walk.

    Hiking on Christmas day? Why not?!

    I thought I’d get really (really) tired, provided that I’d be off for another 7-hour trip back to
    Manila the next day. But it was my grandma’s request to see us, uhm, me in particular; I thought it’s a sin to beg off.

    Deprived of access to any kind of transportation (except during summer), visiting my grandmother on a remote barrio would mean we’ll need to walk, hike, swim…something that I wouldn’t mind doing unless I’ll have enough time to rest after. I’ll be traveling the next day and go to work with no time for sleeping. Thinking that it’s something that may never happen again, on Christmas day, I woke up at 4 in the morning and decided to go, we started walking at about 5:10am. It was still dark, thanks to the full moon.

    Dawn. Taken at about 5:30 in the morning.

    It’s actually about less than a 2-hour walk; we planned to make it three hours. With my camera at hand, we ended up walking for three and a half hours. Back and forth, that’s seven hours.

    I didn’t feel tired at all. I was busy admiring the view like I’ve never seen them before. I was furious I didn’t buy an extra memory card before Christmas. I had to lower down my camera resolution to 3MP, and painstakingly deleted some photos one after the other depending on their “value”.

    Putting my animalistic appeal to test.

    How nature made me feel so insignificant.

    Enjoying the waters.

    My grandma’s hidden treasures.

    Digging inside her century-old "baul", our grandmother showed us this:

    They’re not gold, but definitely they’re more than 100 years old, I don’t know exactly where they came from neither do I know how they’re called. Must be an accessory back in the 18th century (or earlier, who knows). With a hearing problem, I didn’t demand grandma for a story.

    Busy taking pictures, I didn’t notice these coins, until my brother exclaimed 1857!

    The oldest coin in the collection is the Mexican (peso?) dated 1857. Above is a newer one, 1861.

    And look how our Philippine Peso looked like back in the early 1900’s. I wish we still have the “ United States of America” on our money today.
