A Bunch of Lies - Just Delete It!

  • FWD: CHAIN LETTERS! --- > I have been getting a lot of this kind of e-mail Lately... IT'S PURE CRAP! I can't believe people still fall for this kind of thing! Hello! Please use your capability for higher thinking (e-mail forwarders from family, friends & acquaintances, especially people in friendster...). When you read, please do not forget to think. Now, when you get e-mails like these telling you what to do or else you or others will die or suffer.... do you think a bunch of FWD emails actually has a hold of your life? If you do, well, you still live in the Dark Ages of superstition. The part of the e-mail I dislike the most reads:
  • " Once you have opened this e-mail, there's no turning back. Below are true descriptions of zodiac signs. Read your sign, then forward it on, with your zodiac sign and label on the subject line. This is the real deal, try ignoring or changing it, and the first thing you'll notice is having a horrible day starting tomorrow morning - and it only gets worse from there."
  • On other times, "your mother will die" or "someone close to you will die" etc. etc.. is even used in these forwarded messages. Holy smoke! How evil! I swear I might as well be swearing $h!*%#@!!! now!
  • The people who create messages like those are psychos! Don't fall for that kind of crap. You know you have more brains than that!
  • Now stop forwarding these types of e-mails please! Thanks!

A Wintery Walk in Elko




January 9, 2008 - Wednesday
Walking in Elko, BC.

SOME NOTES:
  • 1. "Lakad lakad sa Elko" means: Just walking around Elko
  • 2. "paaano ba e-english ito?" : now how do I say this in English!
  • 3. Correction: It's Mountain Sheep and Deer, not Mountain SHEEPS and DEERS (ayan alam ko na singular and plural form pala ang sheep and deer, Kala ko may "S")

01. January 5, 2008 - Saturday


  • Daryl asked about my "new" job. I Met wonderful people at work on December 20, 2007 , but on the 26th, I got a better paying job offer from my former employer. So I decided to accept that instead. My last day as a housekeeper was on the 28th.
  • This is a photo of one of the 3 long hotel corridors where we had to clean the rooms. It is a great job for cleanaholics. Gives me lots of work-out! The time runs fast.

  • The Job Details for Each Room:
  1. Change Sheets (comes in many stages)
  2. Inspect & Thoroughly Clean Wash Rooms (even more stages here)
  3. Dust Everything in sight
  4. Empty Garbage bins & Clean that as well
  5. Vacuum Floors
  6. Windex Windows
  7. Arrange everything according to Hotel standards


The Year is 2008!
