Life Updates #4

Welcome to my recent life update. Here’s what I’m up to in photos: Aruma Cafe food, Carrot Juice recipe and see what I got at Watsons, my recent Watsons Drugstore Haul.

I went to meet work mates at Aruma Cafe and ordered some few sweet stuff. The food is not helping my AKA diet.

Coffee and Banoffee Cake

Despite the very bad eating habits, I’m feeling positive about eating healthy. My sister and I decided to juice for a day. Our go to juice is a combination of 1 red apple, 1 green apple and 2 carrots. Yum! [Read more...]

Becoming A Career Changer

It’s inevitable. I have to make decisions fast. I have to let go of things that won’t be useful in my chosen career path. I have to learn fast, gain worth while experiences, to live and breathe the industry I want to be in. Are you a career changer, too? Let’s keep in touch.

Finding Your Passion Via MarieTV

“Have you ever struggled to “find your passion” —
and if so, what helped you crack the code?”

Passion for your career

My questions back in 2010 and 2012 when I left high paying jobs was: “What kind of work would I love to do for the rest of my life?”

WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAD IT ALL FIGURED (1)
I remember back in University how I would love to work someday in advertising. I love being creative. I took a step back and looked at my life like an outsider. What’s constant? It was family, love for learning and blogging.

I was blogging constantly, engaging and sharing in social media. Blogging helped me learn about SEO, website management and design, analytics and social media. I didn’t know that “Digital Marketing” is a career that I could do.

I am actively seeking social media work and getting into volunteerism so I can also work on a portfolio. Just like what Marie, of MarieTV, says,” Don’t just think it. Do it.” Digital Marketing is a broad subject. I know that I have still have much to learn. Career shifting is never easy. I am currently learning about E-commerce and I’m planning to take another online course by end of summer.

Top 10 Mistakes Bloggers Make – Part 1

Sverve (Social Verve) community sets up a free webinar with Martinis and Minivan blogger Danielle Herzog as the speaker. The webinar was about the top 10 mistakes bloggers make.

1.  Unsure about the blogging platform to use.

This is so true. Back in 2007, social networking sites Multiply and Friendster was my blogging platform. I had Blogger and Xanga before that. When a friend reintroduced blogging and doing it formally, it wasn’t something that I was open about. I was very shy sharing my thoughts, my writing skills and, obviously, my grammar. After a few conversations about blogging, I conceded. I used Blogger at that time because it was something that was already familiar to me. Back in the day, the platform, the name, SEO, traffic was not really a concern unlike now. Blogging is now a business. In the past, it was just a diary of some sort that people can relate to.

TOP10MISTAKES

The next problem was choosing a name. What should I call my blog? My decision at that time was based on how I was feeling about life. I was trying to get over someone. I felt it was complicated. Thus, a funny name, MyBeautifulComplications. I did not buy my domain so there was “.blogspot.com” still. When my page rank increased to 3, I started getting writing jobs for a fee. But it wasn’t much compared to my friends who have their own domain name. So, get your own .Com!

After a few years, life started looking brighter. I’ve come out of my shell a little bit more and is more opinionated about different things. I changed the name “MaldeeTUH Ramblings” meaning “bitchy” or something girls do when they are not being nice. I deleted MyBeautifulComplications much to my friend’s chagrin. She would say,” What a waste of traffic!” with utter disbelief. To me, blogging was an outlet. It will always stay that way. The extras are just that, bonus and extras but will never be the life of the blog.

A few years after that, my friend was able to convince me to move over to WordPress and get my own hosting service. I did not get my own hosting service but shared with the friend just to see how I like it. It’s going to be impossible to leave wordpress.org I realised. But I again lost my followers during the move from Blogger to WordPress. I knew it would happen so I decided to change the name as well to audreyisms.com[Read more...]

The best teen stars in the Philippines Kathryn Bernardo (as Chichay) and Daniel Padilla (as Joaquin) has left Pinoy TV screen indefinitely as the best TV series since last year ended tonight.

The original Got To Believe is a movie played many years ago by Claudine Barretto and Rico Yan. The TV promises to be different and it did just that and more.

I miss the most kilig TV series ever in Primetime Bida!

The last episode.

G2B Cast

1: Joaquin and Chichay 2: Joaquin’s Parents 3: Chichay’s Parents

Julianna, Joaquin’s mother, confesses it was her gun and bullet that accidentally shot Joaquin in the head. Joaquin is willing to forgive his mother, Julianna, anything that was done in the past. Chichay, as always the forgiving heart, forgives Julianna and believes their family can get through the hardship. Joaquin slowly approached Julianna, took the gun she has been holding and threw it out of reach. Joaquin and Jamie, Joaquin’s dad, held Julianna close to them.

The next scene was when Joaquin walked in to the Tampipi family dinner. He also announced that his mother is with him. Julianna approached Betchay, Chichay’s mother, and asked for forgiveness. Julianna then asked the Tampipi family to take care of her son. The police appeared and invited Julianna to leave with them. Joaquin and Jaime showed their support to Julianna.

The next scene showed Chichay and Joaquin’s college friends contemplating what happened to them. One of Joaquin’s friend admitted that his father received an invitation from Joaquin’s family and thinks it’s a wedding invitation. [Read more...]

Life Updates #3

I easily get bored following one exercise routine. When a sister’s friend invited us to go for power walk at a different location, I was up for it. In the area, there was a small children’s playground with swing.
I couldn’t help myself. I had to give it a go. “This one’s for the childhood memories”.

One of my sister’s boss is into the fitness life business. She has access to tons of juicing recipes and motivational resources. We’ve been thinking about buying a juicer that’s good in quality and at the same time affordable. We finally found one at a department store home goods area, the Moulinex Juice Extractor for only Php3,600+. We loved the first juice concoction we made and it was detoxifying indeed. More on that later on.

Mama is getting health conscious after experiencing some health scare in her prime age. She went out grocery shopping and these are her healthy choices. I’ve always been curious about the Apple Cider Vinegar diet and it makes a great base for green salad sauce. I’ll write a blogpost about it soon. [Read more...]

What I Didn’t Plan Giving Up This Lent

It’s blogging.

Mac Air and Pink Pen

It’s the only thing in my life that I haven’t been doing in the last 3 weeks. It’s not unusual when I work full-time. When I’m only working part-time, it’s something else. I used to blog 5 days a week, if you can check the last few months Archive section.

It’s this always “on” thing I have with work and still trying to streamline work processes. It’s still a work in progress and will always be like so if no one wants to make an investment. But then, this is just me. I still enjoy the kind of work that I do, I’m sticking to it and I’m going to take as much experience as I can while I’m at it.

Oh, I sucked at going to Zumba or group exercise class. Pfft!

Everyone’s Irish On March 17th

I’m seeing green and glitters!

St. Patrick's Day

In the Philippines, we don’t normally celebrate St. Patrick’s Day like the Irish.
Since it’s celebrated in the Catholic churches, this is why we notice how the Irish does it
every 17th of March.

If you see someone wearing green and greets you, give them a kiss, cheek to cheek.
Have a blast to my Irish friends!

Oh, let me know if you want me to make a tutorial on how to make glittered fonts!
