Kerfuffle Post

October is such an expensive month! I'm looking forward to November as long as it gets reasonable with me. Can you imagine a macbook, camera, condo dp, rent, furniture, etc all rolled into one bank account?! I'm still shaking October's hands though as I bid it farewell. It is after all still my month of birth, my lovey-dovey (<---yes, kill me for using this) anniversary month, and my fave holiday’s date--- Halloween! So goodbye Oc-oc… you’ve wiped out my wallet! Cleanliness after all is next to Godliness I guess?! At this point, God must really love me. Simplicty has been imposed on me thanks to "emptiness"... major wipe out surfer dudes!

I’ve been itching to post several things. However, my hands and legs are stretched from post to post, kinda like spider webs (funny mental picture here), as I make ultimate changes in life. More on this next time…In the meantime, let’s get down to business… green business! Another one of my time-occupying projects is now ready to fly! Knocking on all you Entreps (pronounce the first e as “Uhh” please) and business savvy people! Here’s a chance to make greens (and blues of course!) and go green as well! Presenting…Taaadaaah!!!

*If this comes out malabo then it is very much my fault. So just message me or something to get the clear version with attachments via email.

So if you’re interested or you know anyone who fits the bill then call, email, text... you know the drill! Hoping to hear from you people! Ok now sing with me! It’s BEGREENING to look a lot like Christmas!!!:)

The Daily Green

I never thought that Ondoy would hit us that way. The creek walls in our village fell and water rose up to our necks. Next thing I know, our sofas and glass balls from Vigan were floating here and there. Ann swam alone to check on us. Mind you, our street was really flooded! So kudos to my Presonal Red Cross Hero!:) We swam Gavin out in his little jet floater. We knew that the flood was not going to get any better soon and the stench of sewage water was present in all sniffs made. Not to mention, mosquitos, rat pee, whatever. There was a slight debate, to stay or swim out. By 5:30PM things were pretty much unpretty still so we took the dive. I never thought anyone could jetski on our village's main street and boy were rash guards in or what!


Geron by the house-help area right before leaving (swimming) to get us food at Pancake house. By the time he got back, water was neck-high.

Shame aside... here's the real question for me now? Can I still go green and smoke? Yes I am a smoker and in no way am I proud of it! I'm ready to change my ways for greener pastures but my occasional habit still can't be kicked of now. For days now, I have been very mindful of where I ditch my dirty habit's waste. I hope this lasts my consciousness long enough until I quit. I am trying to find other ways to compensate for this issue. In the short run of my breath, I know more changes will be asked of me if I truly will take this cause to heart.

Anyhoo, to city-dwellers who are green-slouchers (we all are 1 way or another), here are very very very easy ways to get you started:

1. Use a jug instead of purchasing water bottles endlessly
2. Avoid take-outs to lessen the waste
3. Use as much natural lighting during the day
4. Do bill payments and similar transactions online.
(e.g. Citibank encourages online transactions)
5. Unplug phone chargers and PCs when not in use. Better yet, use a laptop instead.

Here's a test to see how green you are So far, I'm light green... must go darker!

We all need Captain Planet (No he is not Gary V, kamuka lang!) but he did say "Remeber... the power is yours!"

Peace everyone! Green Peace!
