Get A Merchant Account, Please!

More often than not, people bring their credit cards with them all the time rather than cash. I for one don’t bring a lot of cash with me. It’s either I use credit or debit card. Thus sometimes, it’s frustrating when you go to a certain place, mostly restaurants by the way, that doesn’t accept credit cards payments. I hope those business owners would realize that they are missing a lot in not accepting other payment options. Don’t they know that a free merchant account is easy to avail? Yes, all they have to do is to visit Merchant Advisors through and learn more about their merchant services or merchant accounts and how they can add credit card processing in their business immediately. Once signed-up Merchant Advisors will give merchants a free terminal, which supports multiple payment types like credit, debit, EBT, check verification, prepaid and gift cards to name a few. In addition, a 24/7 excellent customer support is also given and best of all you can try their services for 30 days absolutely free! Other than credit card processing, Merchant Advisors also offers business cash advance, small business loans and franchise financing. All these information can be conveniently found on their website.

My Fingers Are Tired!

After not getting data entry work for at least 4 weeks, they finally gave us some. I have been keying my butt off since Thursday morning trying to make a decent amount of money to make up for that 4-week drought. Now, my wrists, fingers and arms are hurting so bad. Plus the fact that I lack so much sleep! Geez! It is really hard to earn money but can be gone in a second. Oh they lowered the rate again by the way. It sucks! Wew!

Watching While Blogging

I do that all the time, watching television while blogging. I am a multi-tasker eh :) Right now, I am watching Rush Hour 3. I have seen this movie a few times and I like it just because Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker's rapport is so good. They both are so funny. However, Rush Hour 1 is still the best! The best part of their movies are the bloopers :)

Not A Good One

It is not a very good day for, I woke up with a terrible headache. I took some aspirin already, but surprisingly it's been an hour and I still have it. Normally, 15 minutes after taking my aspirin, the headache goes away. It didnt happen today, maybe because I need a great amount of sleep or something. I am still so sleepy, I guess that's one of the reasons plus its my "time of the month"... argggh it hurts!

Hot Weather? Check Your AC!

In the past few days, it started to feel like its fall. But, today it felt like torture again as it’s very hot outside. The air conditioner is on but it still feels like in the oven. I hate the torment of a very hot weather, just like last month when my brother-in-law and his family visited. We needed to take them to one of their friends’ house and on the way there, the van’s air conditioner stopped working. It was over 90 degrees then and very humid. I started feeling sick and was so worried about the kids too. I will never ever want someone to go through that chaos. As soon as we got back, I told hubby to check the van and see if A/C compressor is needed or something else. He never got the chance, but today I saw him checking out and trying to find the parts that he needed. Don’t be caught up on this still hot weather check your car every time and if you needed something for your car’s air conditioner visit

What Can You Say?

I have been watching the Democratic National Convention from Michelle Obama's speech to Sen. Hilary Clinton's. Hubby and I agreed that Michelle did extremely good in her speech, however, I am not sure about Hilary Clinton. Not sure if she swayed her supporters to vote for Sen. Barack Obama. What are your thoughts on this?

International Artist Academy

Most children start to show their talents at a very young age. Just like the kids that I saw on the Oprah Winfrey show. They can sing, dance; play the piano and the guitar. Things like these are God given talents, however, there are also times wherein you can enhance it through constant practice. Have coaches who can guide your kids to the right direction, just like how they do in the International Artist Academy. They offer singing lessons, guitar lessons and piano lessons amongst others. Beginners or advanced, they accommodate kids of all ages. Their trainers have years of excellent know-how in their fields. This is I think where my friend enrolled himself to get a guitar lesson when he migrated to Australia. Now, he’s back in the Philippines, has his own band and looking forward to getting a recording contract in one of the Philippines’ biggest record companies.

Too Early

My kid here and hubby is too early to get up and are watching a movie. And yeah, they have seen this movie ten thousand times, I think. The Matrix that is. The television is too loud, can't concentrate on what I was trying to write. My goodness! I needed to finish something and I can't contemplate here... arghhhh !

How Real Am I?

One of my pet peeves are those people who are having a hard time being real, either to others or to themselves. People who are, in filipino lingo, "tupperware". As for me, I wanted to be as real as I can be. Because living in a very honest way is better than living in a bogus life. How real are you? Take the quiz and let us know :)

You Are 84% Real

There's hardly a person on this earth more real than you are.

You have no problem showing people who you are, flaws and all.

For you, there couldn't be any other way. Because it's way too stressful to live an inauthentic life.

You're very comfortable with yourself. And because of this, you're able to live an exciting, interesting, and challenging life.

In A Financial Mischief ?

As much as possible we all want to live a very comfortable life, but somehow, at some point in our lives, no matter how hard working we are, we still fall into severe financial mischief. I would like to use myself as an example. Although I love shopping (who doesn’t lol!), I am not a person who spends money lavishly. I see to it that every payday, I’d pay myself first, put it in my savings account for the rainy days. That “rainy days” started when my father was hospitalized. He was in and out of the hospital cause of his heart ailment. As their first born, I am compelled to help out. My credit cards were all maxed out from paying the bills and his prescription medicines. I feel like it’s the end of the world, credit card companies are calling me all the time. Debt consolidation is out of the question because at that time it’s never heard of (at least in my country). It’s hard, I really am weeping for Debt help.

Unsure of what’s going to happen to me, I told my fiancĂ© then, now my husband that I am really looking for some kind of Debt relief. He said not to worry about it because he will help me out. He was true to his word so I was able to get rid of all my credit card debts. Going through that kind of trouble made me more careful in dealing with my finances. If one of you on the other hand, needs assistance and more understanding of your financial health and ways to improve your financial score, is the way to go. You will learn so many things about debt consolidation, debt help, debt relief programs and Credit counseling by merely reading through their website. You can also ask questions and get advice from their experts. They will truly enlighten you and help you no matter what your financial status is. To me, knowing that there’s a company like Bills IQ who does that kind of good work makes me feel secured.

What My Driving Says About Me !

I am barely new to driving so I am not sure if I really have to take this quiz. However, I am interested to see the result so here it is :D ... I thought the item that says I'm not a very focused person is kinda funny :)

What Your Driving Says About You

You are a creative, resourceful person. You can easily entertain yourself, and you make the best of any situation.

You are always increasing your awareness of the world around you. You are a life long learner.

You are a very fair person. You treat everyone equally, even when it's difficult to do.

You can be a rather tense, grouchy person - but you try to maintain your dignity.

You have the utmost respect for authority figures. You feel that rules - and their enforcement - are important.

You are not a very focused person. You have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time!

You are a very responsible and conscientious person. You often consider the feelings and needs of others.

Your ego is normally in check, but sometimes you get a bit egotistical. You tend to be a little self-important at times.

I hope not, coz that surely sucks!

Complete Prescription Eyeglasses

Since everything is so expensive nowadays, we are all watching our budget. We always want to get a great deal no matter what we are buying. Saving a little bit here and there really helps. I watch the news all the time as they give great tips on how you can save money. Believe it or not, that’s where my hubby found out about the Incredible Stylish New Frames From Zenni (just like the picture below). Yes! Zenni Optical was on FOX news! For a person who wears eyeglasses like me; Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses is a lifesaver. Why? Because affordable products like what they offer is what we need in this kind of economy right now.

Cruising By The Lake

This photo was taken one sunny, but breezy and cool afternoon. The boys are enjoying bike ride while my legs are hurting from walking trying to keep up with them coz I don't have my bike. But it was a great walk... Something I should be doing regularly :)
