OLX: Classified Ads in One Click

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Now that the world has turned modern and progressive, every thing seems to be in its fast track and beyond your reach. People keep on inventing stuff to make life easier for us. I mean, the word “instant”, “fast”, “automatic”, “do-it-yourself”, “virtual”, “digital” are the most common terms nowadays. Just look around and you will see.

Humans experienced technology at its best during Internet’s breakthrough. We can access everything in just one click. In contrast to the old times, wherein you really have to be physically there to actually know about what you want to know about.

The wonders of Internet have brought to us OLX. It is an online portal where you can buy and sell cars, gadgets and other stuff, canvass for prices, shop, look for a job, advertise and more in the Philippines and abroad. If you are into online shopping, wants to purchase items that are rare to find, into bargains, wants to find tickets for leisure and entertainment, wants to advertise your business, into real estate… OLX is a perfect website for you.

This website is very advantageous for people applying /looking for a job because OLX contains a vast Classified Ads depending on your needs. The great thing about it is that, you can post your own advertisement and even advertise yourself for free!

I actually had fun browsing and reading different ad placements in the Health Care section since I belong to the “unemployed nurse” status though I am currently studying after I graduated college. I was hoping to look for a vacancy as a nurse but to my dismay, I just found faces looking for the same thing.

Oh well, on the bright side, you can actually save money by just exploring OLX because instead of going to the busy offices in Makati and fight for jobs in Quezon City you just have to sit back, connect to the web and do some clicking. What an awesome relief right?

Thrilled by Dra. Fe Del Mundo :)

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

I am soooooo grateful I had the chance to have a photo with one of our National Scientists in the Philippines, Dra. Fe Del Mundo. Who is she?

  • Filipino Pediatrician
  • First woman admitted as a student of the Harvard Medical School
  • founded the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines
  • Known for having devised an incubator made out of bamboo
  • National Scientist of the Philippines, the first Filipino woman to be so-named.

There are a lot of great stories about her works and service to the Filipino people, some unknown and some are yet to be known. I have talked to several staff nurses in her hospital and I knew that she is really an outstanding person and deserves everything she had accomplished.

Now, Dra. Fe Del Mundo is 98 years old, I had that picture taken because she conducted rounds in the hospital. She’s very beautiful and has good aura that day. I was very thankful and definitely thrilled. She joked “Dapat kung gaano kadami ang nagpapapicture ngayon sa akin, ganoon din ang pasyente natin…” we all laughed. The OB ward was benign that day but she really brightened our day.

P.S
The ward is still benign but I learned a lot, I made friends with the staff nurses and they are really very generous in teaching and sharing their experiences.

Next time, Dra. Fe will do rounds, I’ll have my photo taken with her, this time— Solo 🙂 with autograph! hihi.

5, 845 Dishes with Kraft Eden Cheese on Display, In a Single Day -World YUMM Event

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

And the Filipinos have done it once again.

Kraft Eden Cheese broke the record of the “Most Number on Display, In a Single Day” last December 14, 2009 at the Araneta Coliseum with………

*insert drum roll sound effects here*

5, 845 Palatable Dishes with CHEESE!!!

There were 500 Chefs and 5,000 dishes in the event. Premier culinary school Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA) contribute the most of the research and student manpower in the making of the event, with the added help of other schools such as Regina Carmeli, St. Paul University-Manila, Centro Escolar University, Emilio Aguinaldo College, La Consolacion College and Arellano University-Manila.

In the event, there were also contests that the following schools participated. The Grand winner for the Cheese Carving Contest is Centro Escolar University and Grand winner for the Noche Buena Cook-Off Contest is La Consolacion College.

There were a lot of YUMM-Y dishes and I wished I could taste them all! It was my first event with this kind of cause.

With that, I can say, Filipinos have the habit of making a HISTORY!

Here is my previous blogpost http://www.littlenars.com/2009/11/11/be-a-part-of-history-with-kraft-eden-cheese/

Visit Zero In Periphery Museums: 5 museums to enjoy and indulge yourself with

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

When we were a child, our school would engage us in educational field trips every year in various museums and historical walks to learn more about the world around us. Field trip was the happiest and most unforgettable moment of my grade school life. In addition to that, my family would also have side trips at different museums in different parts of Metro Manila and at times, outside it. It was some sort of family bonding at the same time enjoying that we were able to know more about our country’s culture and history.

Zero In Peripheral exhibit is a theme of 5 museums in Manila which is composed of Lopez Memorial Museum, Ayala Museum, Ateneo Art Gallery, Bahay Tsinoy and Museo Pambata. Zero in Periphery is one treasure of knowledge, history and black box of our past that is documented by ordinary people and unknown heroes of the old Philippines.

For most of the people, it is a connotation that museums are only for kids but Zero in Periphery caters also to the “young at hearts”. It is good to have some trivia or nice-to-know facts that you can share your friends that were not taught to us in our formative years in schools.

I salute Zero in Periphery for bringing the biggest crater of Philippine history that was forgotten for centuries. I have gone to Museum Pambata and Ayala Museum and will definitely visit the other 3 museums.
