1 in 3 families are affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors — physical, sexual, psychological, and economic coercion — used by one intimate partner against another (adult or adolescent) to gain, maintain, or regain power and control in the relationship. Batterers use of a range of tactics to frighten, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, often injure, and sometimes kill a current or former intimate partner.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, don't be scared. Seek help and be heard. If you know someone who is being abused, lend a helping hand.

Hi there! Uh-oh, my review for 49 Days or Pure Love isn't done yet (or the truth is I haven't even started writing it). XD Meanwhile, I want to share this hilarious video of a "talking" dog being teased. I almost died laughing after watching this one. XD
See the video below just in case you haven't seen it yet.
Hilarious isn't it? XD

Not all drivers know every tiny bit of details about their car... particularly when something goes wrong with it. And sometimes (in some few instances, I'm not saying all the time) mechanics take advantage of us not knowing anything about our car that we end up spending too much than what we should. I would suggest checking out this site and maybe sign up too if you want to so you will know more when it comes to car repair and maintenance.
Upon exploring this site, I realized how much helpful it is. You can find information about your car maintenance, find a repair shop near you as well as a helpful quote or estimate just in case you need something done with your automobile so you'll know how much things costs. It helps when you have an idea about these so your mechanic won't take advantage of you or so you can pinpoint exactly what's wrong and what's needed to be repaired.
This site is just so complete that I also started checking if they have maintenance information of my "dream cars". Apparently, they have car maintenance details for Audi cars. Yay! That means this will really be helful for my "future" R8 or my "future" A6 sedan. Hmm, they don’t have info for Lamborghini cars though (for my super dream car Gallardo) but I think soon enough they’ll be adding it here to. :)

Hi there! I remembered I should post at least twice a week so for this week, this is going to be post number one. This is going to be a quick one cause I'm at work. Heehee! XD
I'm supposed to blog something about the drama I just finished watching weeks ago called 49 Days but it's going to be a longer post so that would wait a while. Anyway, I saw its trailer on ABS-CBN but they apparently changed the title to Pure Love. I guess I should post my review about it before it airs locally. It's a good drama. A must-watch. :)
So there, I'll be back pretty soon with that blog post. I missed lots of people when I became inactive here. You guys know who you are! :) Unfortunately, I can't visit some of your blogs cause either your profiles are set to private or your blog's URL has changed. Please hit me back with your new links! ;)
Gotta go now. See ya around! ;)

Okay, so how's everyone? XD
I know right, I've been MOA for about five months. Oh well, same old things, I'm busy or I'm just too lazy to update my blog. Gomen blog, gomen. ~_~
So yea, I think I will be back now. :) I promise I'll post updates as often as I could. I think I have too much stories to share now since I've been very quiet for a few months. I wish my readers won't get annoyed though... or do I still have readers? XD
Anyway, I hope my blogger friends are still visiting my blog. XD Expect at least three posts a week starting today. XD
See ya around! ^^

I've got this one from a friend and I can't help but repost it here. It's a very touching story with a good moral lesson for each of us...
Adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley
1907 - 1977
Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.
One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"
The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."
"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.
To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."
Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"
At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "I made a difference to that one!"
We may not be able to reach out to all those who are in need, but we can always do something in our own little ways to make a difference. ;)
