Blog Statistics

Blogger keeps on evolving. I could not have been happier did I not use blogger as it is very user friendly that even a non-techie like me will be able to maintain an own website. I couldn't thank you enough, the people behind blogger, you guys are genius.

Another tab was added recently by Blogger, the STAT Tab, with this tab I don't need to subscribe to a third party application anymore just to see the traffic report of Yellow Bells. With the STAT Tab, I am able to check where the traffic in my blog is coming from, who are viewing my site, which entries are popular and things like that. Popularity wise, my entry for PEBA 2010 "Their heart is my home" is top on the list for all time while an entry entitled 8 Ways to Break a Man's Heart is next to it but tops the monthly category more than my scandalous post Pinay Scandal-the battle continues which I wrote for the purpose of driving traffic to my blog. Here are the stats of my popular post, it is not huge but it does serve its purpose. Thank you guys for reading my posts.

Not only that, the article 8 Ways to Break a Man's Heart ranks first on the google search when I type "ways to break a mans heart'. Due to curiosity of its popularity and ranks seventh when I typed "breaking a man's heart" I Google it and here is the result. Hmmmm...that's why...

Tulog Lamok

1 comment:
malamlam ang talukap ng 'yong mga mata
ultimo babagsak sa konting ugoy ng bisig ng ina't ama
ang iyong panuro'y patupat na kaagapay
sa hele at awit na kay tamis sinasambit

bumagsak na nga at napadpad na
ang iyong ulirat sa alapaap ng panaginip
ang katahimikang nababanaag sa anghel mong mukha'y
walang kapantay

ngawit at bigat ay di tagalan
nahimlay ng ikaw ay bitiwan
umasang mahaba at mahimbing
at may magagawang kabanata

uminat at humikab sabay pumikit
nagpasalamat sa muling paghimbing
kaunting kaluskos ikaw ay nagising
tulog lamok, tulog lamok halika na
ikaw ay bubuhatin

Magimpok sa Bangko


I am frequenting PNoy website since its launch last August 2010 to read news and current events about what his new administration is doing as well as voice out opinion and participate in the forum. I liked TITO NOY page that's why I made the poster that you can see here using the humble MS Office paint application, I also submitted the same to Fingers crossed, hope it is good enough to be published in his website. :)

I believe in teaching the young ones the core values of our society for them to grow as responsible individual who will not burden the country but contribute in its progress. Teaching the kids the value of money and savings will not only make a child learn to value his possessions like money but will also benefit him in the future.

Henna Art & Eid Al Fitr

1 comment:
Henna art has long been a tradition in the Mediterranean and a growing popularity among other countries. It is widely used as a body art during weddings and other occasions and festivities like Eid, Diwali and Passover.
My hand with Henna Art (Floral) waiting to dry.

Henna is a flowering plant use to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. The henna plant is native to regions of Africa, South Asia, and Northern Australasia however it is widely and commercially cultivated in countries like the UAE, Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, India, Iran, Pakistan,Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan. These countries are wide users of processed henna used to adorn young women's body as part of social and holiday celebrations.

Speaking of celebrations, depending on the sighting of the moon, tomorrow or the day after (8th or 9th September) will be Eid Al Fitr or the end of Ramadan (a month long fasting of our Muslim brothers). "Eid" is an Arabic word meaning festivity and "Fitr" means to purify and so the holiday symbolizes the purification after completing the fasting month. During this celebration, Muslims wake up early in the morning for prayers, customarily they eat a light breakfast as a sign that they do not fast on that day, they also wear their best clothing, women apply henna art and children receive gifts from elders.

Eid Al Fitr for expats in UAE means HOLIDAY! It coincides with the weekend but still we are getting one day off from work. If Eid falls on Thursday we don't come to work on that day but if Eid falls on Friday then we don't come to work on Sunday! Either way is good! I still don't have any plans but sure to have something before the holiday starts.

This is my hand with henna art after drying. hmm looks pretty! Thanks to Sarah for this cute design.

Camerons Camel Campaign

How much have you paid attention to our environment so far?

Are you one of the people who cannot leave the supermarket with only one plastic bag in hand (yes say it, you want more because you reuse it as garbage bags at home)? Do you say NO when ask by the cashier to purchase reusable and biodegradable bag for only .50 fils and then free to change for life? Have you been negligent of the water bottles you emptied and left it everywhere unnoticed or are you the person who always have a trash bag inside your car to put your trash and throw away when you find a garbage bin?

Which type of environmentalist are you? Are you the protective or destructive type?

I say I am still in the middle, sometimes guilty of the things I ask you above, I still have to polish that protective side of me for mother earth. As a mother, I have the responsibility to teach my kids to be protective of their environment too and make them aware of dangers that humans post to nature. The love for nature and environment must be instill to them while young so they grow up and live with it.

With the growing concern of Dubai (and UAE) and its locals and residents alike about the environment, one young boy named Cameron from South Africa started a campaign which he called Cameron's Camel Campaign. A young boy who was disturbed after reading about one article in Gulfnews (Dubai's local newspaper) concerning camels dying due to ingestion of plastics and garbage in the desert. The young nibble and swallow only to choked and die while the adult camels live with prolonged suffering of excruciating stomach pain before death. The photo below speaks for itself, this is not just one, Dr. Ulli, Wernery Scientific Director of the Central Veternary Research Laboratories in Dubai found 30 carcasses in Ras Al Khaima, a place which he called "Death Valley".

The aim of the campaign is to STOP people from littering the deserts with all non-biodegradable materials used by campers, picnickers, desert adventurers, endurance riders like bags, bottles. caps, lids, plates, containers, cutlery, ropes, loops of can, and even worn-out tyres. These things don't stay where people left them, it is blown away by he wind, some get caught in the trees, bushes, and far into the desert where camels roam to find food and mistakenly eat plastics and garbage as food.

This campaign earned a lot of publicity and Cameron received the 2008 Abu Dhabi Awards and also the youngest recipient of the prestigious award given by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan himself.

Camerons Camel Campaign will never stop until no camels will die of plastic and garbage ingestion. Let us support this campaign and preserve this wondeful desert beast for our next generation to see.
