Back to jumping rope

If you think that jumping ropes are just for kids, try skipping for five minutes and you’ll be amazed that it’s not that easy. I just finished doing a 10-minute jump rope cardio workout (see video below) and until now I’m still trying to catch my breath.

I got inspired to try jumping rope workouts when I read on a forum where people affirms that it can tone the arms and legs, and make the tummy smaller. A few months ago, I bought a jumping rope from Toby’s at P145. I started to jumped rope for 15 minutes every other day for one week. After the first day, my calves and thighs were aching so badly. So, I stopped and got too lazy to continue.

Deep fried Oreo cookies, yum!

Oreo is in itself a comfort food. But what happens when you coat it with a light batter and deep fry until golden brown?
Thanks to my sister who introduced me to another yummy treat to include on my list of comfort food. Today, I took my first big bite into a deep fried Oreo cookie at The Old Spaghetti House.

Facebook turns into a cartoon and anime photo album

Browsing my Facebook account these past few days is like flipping through the pages of a cartoon and anime photo album.
The message below was posted and went viral on Facebook. Reports say that this post has been circulating since December 1, also the same date when the “Change your profile picture to a cartoon character campaign” Facebook Page was created.

“Change your profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood andinvite your friends to do the same. Until Monday (Dec 6) there shouldbe no human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is acampaign to stop violence against children.”

Connecting to Yahoo!, GoogleTalk, Skype, Twitter and Facebook simultaneously with Trillian Astra 5.0

Seems impossible, right? But it is POSSIBLE.

People who are close to me might be wondering how in the world I am able to go online with not just two, but seven email accounts all at the same time. I have one each for my online stores and personal accounts, some of which are working since I was in high school.

So, here goes the story of how I manage one Skype, one Twitter, two Google, five Yahoo! email accounts and three social networking accounts.

I was introduced to Trillian, an instant messaging (IM) software developed by Cerulean Studios, a couple of years ago by my brother. Back then, we only had one personal computer at home that is shared with my four siblings. Imagine each one of us waiting in line for their turn to get online. If my memory serves me right, the version we used to connect to our different IM accounts was Trillian Basic 3.0.

How to convince potential clients that you are a legit online seller

One of the many challenges online sellers in Multiply or “Multiplyneurs” face when starting up is convincing potential clients that they are legit sellers and not bogus. I believe that this challenge is mostly experienced by Pinoy Multiplyneurs because e-commerce, the buying and selling of goods and services online, is a concept that is not yet fully embraced by Filipinos.

As an online seller myself, I, too, have encountered this dilemma when I launched my online store in Multiply last year. Back then, there was no Multiply Trust program to identify online sellers who have been “verified” by Multiply. However, I was still able to build customer trust and soon orders were coming.
