Rate my life
Thursday, February 28, 2008
Here's another popular quiz that my friends are posting on their blogs.
This Is My Life, Rated
Take the Rate My Life Quiz

Notice the Finance bar? That's what you get when you have lots of debts to settle! So spare me when I try to make extra money online to make ends meet!

I don't care much about the other aspects, but I'm so thankful that this graph proves that I have so much love in my life. That's what I need to get through in this cruel world. Drama queen mode.



Blog awards
My apologies to Heidi for the delayed posting of the awards she gave me. Thanks so much for these, dear! I am truly honored.

Thanks for regularly visiting my blog and for thinking I deserve such awards.

Alternative high quality ink and toner cartridges
A computer printer has become an essential tool not only for businesses but for home use as well. From the simple machine that user an inked ribbon, printers have evolved into something as multi functional as the printer-scanner-fax-copier-in one, using different kinds of inks, toners, and cartridges.

Having said that, the demand for ink and toner refills have risen, encouraging the manufacturers to raise their prices for more profit. Fortunately, there are different suppliers who have answered the consumers' call for lower prices, like Inkers.

They offer high quality inks and cartridges at just a fraction of the cost of branded ones. They are so sure of the quality of their products that they even offer a 30-day no questions asked return policy. Add to that the convenience of online shopping, with several payment options, and free delivery to Continental US orders.



Back pain. Back off.
I owe a lot of people some blog visits and tags. My apologies.

Work have been pretty toxic the past week and it didn't help that I've been experiencing lower back pains since Saturday. It's torture, I tell you.

So even if my PC at home is now working perfectly, as much as I want to, I really can't catch up with my blogging duties and obligations. I really can't do much, even at work, when my mind refuses to process any information other than the fact that my lower back is in sooooo much pain.

I'd go now and spread/share my misery with the first unlucky person I meet on the hallway, but I need to meet a couple of deadlines.

The show must go on.

Me? A sellout?
Wednesday, February 27, 2008
My fugitive friend (who recently got engaged - congratulations to you, but who the hell is the unlucky guy? ) once called me a sellout. A SELLOUT.

I beg to disagree.

For argument's sake, let's try to define what sellout actually mean. Here's the definition by Dictionary.com:
sellout - noun
  1. an act or instance of selling out.
  2. an entertainment, as a show or athletic event, for which all the seats are sold.
  3. Informal. a person who betrays a cause, organization, or the like; traitor.
  4. Informal. a person who compromises his or her personal values, integrity, talent, or the like, for money or personal advancement.

Well, I'm definitely now a sold-out show, although I wish I could be one. And I've definitely, absolutely no cause organization to betray.

Am I a person who compromises his or her personal values, integrity, talent, or the like, for money or personal advancement? I don't think so. I may be making money here (not much so far, if I may add), but never have I said or done anything that is against my principles and beliefs.

My personal posts remains the same - personal. Even my paid posts are most of the time related to my personal experiences.

I'm just a little hurt that I am being branded with something that is far from the truth. I've worked hard to put this blog where it is right now. It hasn't reached the skies, but I'm doing what I can to bring it off the ground.

Now you're telling me I'm being too sensitive and it was just a joke? OF COURSE, I'M SENSITIVE! I'M PREGNANT, FOR PETE'S SAKE! I have all the rights and the excuses to be sensitive because I'm pregnant. Ha!

EXHIBIT 010 - Best sandwich of all time
Tuesday, February 26, 2008
This has got to be the best-looking, most kick-ass sandwich I've ever seen.

Click on the image for a bigger view.best sandwich

I wonder if it tastes as good as it looks. I'll try and make one myself when I'm on my maternity leave already.



The nanny, the PC, and the approaching D-day
A quick update...
  • We finally found a new nanny! Read more about it here.
  • Mr. Frost, with the help of some friends at work, has fixed my home PC and got it working already! Yey! I just hope I still have the energy to work on my blogs when I get home from work. I've been extra exhausted the past couple of weeks. Probably because I'm nearing my due date. GASP!
  • Speaking of which, an officemate gave birth this weekend. that makes me more excited, antsy, panicky about my own childbirth. I was checking my birth records with Issen last night and saw that I gave birth at 38 weeks. I'm on my 34th week now and that means one month more and I'll be on the edge of my seat waiting for Kobe's D-day. I didn't realize I'm this far along already. I thought I was still on my 7th month of pregnancy.

Gotta meet some deadlines first, then I hope I still have the time to post my sentiments on the updates mentioned above.

And yeah, I owe a lot of girls some blog visits. Sorry, my dears, it's been really chaotic in my world lately.

Now, let's all have a nice day, shall we?

New Iron Man Trailer
The guys from the Wednesday Group are such suckers for anything related to Marvel Universe and DC Comics, as well as less popular graphic novel outfits. We try to keep ourselves as updated as possible with regards to anything that has something to do with them superheroes.

Our latest discovery is the new trailer for Marvel Enterprises' movie rendition of Iron Man. The damn trailer sent shivers down my spine I can hardly contain my anticipation of the film. So far, Robert Downey Jr. looks great as Tony Stark, but that is yet to be seen. Let's hope he plays the part well.

i have high hopes for this film because Jon Favreau is my personal favorite. I'm crossing my fingers.

Without further ado, here's the new Iron Man trailer, fresh from IGN.com.

Still on settling debts
I got a call earlier this afternoon from the lawyer of my credit card company, the one that I haven't settled yet. He didn't give me the usual lines about me getting a civil case because of my non-payment. He merely asked about my plans, if I have any, of settling my debt to the credit card company. It was a pleasant conversation, no hard feelings or threats whatsoever. :)

Anyway, that call made me panic unnecessarily again. My balance isn't that big anymore, but the last guys I talked to before today told me that I have to pay it in full already. I really have to work on settling this credit card debt for my own peace of mind.

Makes me wonder why there are no consumer credit resource here in the country. I believe there are entities in the States that help consumers with bad credit rating. There are so many establishments offering such services that another group of service came out, one that helps in analyzing what credit offer is the best for you.

Some of their services include debt consolidation, where they can consolidate all your debts so you only have to make one payment with low interest rates and reduce your total balances up to 60%. Another service is their personal loan, where you can get cash loans for whatever purpose you may have - pay bills, financial emergencies, buy a new gadget. They'll give you instant cash loans no matter how bad your credit history is.

Ah, I definitely need to come up with something. If only BadCreditOffers.com cater to international clients as well, then I wouldn't be this worried.



EXHIBIT 008 - Darwin Awards Nominee
Thursday, February 21, 2008
We were on our way to work this morning when we saw a stalled car up ahead the corner where we would turn right.

The car's hood is up so we assumed it was engine trouble, but we wondered why the guys there are standing by the door instead of working on the engine.

When we came closer, we realized what they were doing by the door. Take a look.

To those who can't figure it out, we surmised that the driver got locked out of his car. He probably had an engine trouble so he popped the hood and got off the car to check on the engine, leaving the keys in the ignition, or anywhere inside the car. I don't know how the door closed and locked, but since they're trying to pry open the door, that's probably what happened.

How convenient. How smart.

Most likely, the car driver can't believe his luck, or lack of it. And so very early in the morning.



Cheer me up, me booties!
Something beautiful happened earlier this week that lifted my spirits up from the stress I've been going through.


Remember the pairs of boots that I've been pining for last year? Well, I got them! I haven't taken pics of the actual items, but I got them last Monday. Yeah, I know this is another late post, but until my PC at home is fixed, I can't update as regularly as I want. It's okay, it's almost done. I probably be catching up on my bloghopping and paid opps at home by tonight.

Anyway, I am so loving them! I can't wear the knee-high boots yet, because pregnant women are discouraged from wearing heeled shoes as doing so increases the chances of developing those ugly varicose veins on my legs. Not that my legs are so damn pretty, but I don't want them showing early signs of ageing, do I?

I wore the Angel-Devil boots last Monday, though. I just wanted to try it on, but they felt so much more comfortable than the flat pumps that I was wearing that I wore them (the boots) the whole day. It felt like walking flat-footed on carpet, probably because it has a fur-like material inside, from the leg part all the way to the bottom part.

Spammer, my "uber shopaholic officemate/friend/future godmother of Baby Kobe" (oh yeah, I owe you another post about Baby Frost #2's name ), also got a pair of the Angel-Devil boots, and she got hers the same day I did mine. However, since the boots didn't really go with that she was wearing that day, she waited till the next day to wear hers. Good thing, too, because we don't really want to be called "The Boots Twins". Or somebody might brand one of the the Angel, and the other the Devil. They'd probably have a hard time deciding who's the Angel and who's the Devil between us.

Games and gambles
Tuesday, February 19, 2008
After my episode with the newbie poker tournament with some friends, I'm starting to understand why people get hooked in gambling, online or in real life.

My friend who found solace in online casinos is now very serious in learning the tricks of the trade. Her favorite websites include one that that lists the Best UK Casinos. Apparently, these websites tell her what to look for in a casino. She plays on the online casinos too, but she feels it's time to try playing in a real casino.

My friends who organized the newbie poker tournament are also talking about trying to play on online casinos. Thing is, they want to play all at the same time so they can play against each other. I mean, what's the point of going online to play poker if you're gonna play with the same people you play with off line? Those guys are ridiculous.

Anyway, these are my friends who found in gambling - online or in real life - what I found in gaming - online, LAN, console, or street. We all found comfort and a sense of expertise, something we can say that we're good at. And that's important in boosting our self-confidence.

And we need all the self-confidence we need to win our gambles and games.



The wonder that is online coupon
Saturday, February 16, 2008
We all want to save money. Individuals who try and stick to their budget find ways on how they can save in their expenses and purchases. Many people, homemakers especially, find solution in coupons that they find on newspapers and magazines.

As online shopping grows more and more popular, it's a good thing that online stores have their own versions of coupons to enable shoppers to save.

You'd be surprised as to how much savings you can get from these coupons. There are some, like BabyUniverse.com, who give 15% off on all items of a particular brand, plus free shipping on other items. Homeclick, on the other hand, gives you $100 off of your purchases amounting from $1000 and above, plus free shipping if your orders exceed $199.

You can browse through coupon offered by a specific online store or by categories, like babies, apparels, kitchen, music, and many others.

Of course, my favorite category is Baby, Kids, and Toys. :)

Check out Couponchief.com for coupons on stuff that you're planning to purchase online.



Stress is...
... what I've been going through the past week. A terrible case of stress.

I've been unable to update you guys for the past couple of days because my PC at home still isn't working. Been really busy at work and I even went down with fever on Valentine's Day.

I'm stressing over a number of things right now.
  • Issen's nanny is pregnant and I can't find a replacement (HELP!).
  • My PC at home is still broken (somebody's gonna fix it today, I hope they'd fix it for good).
  • Mr. Frost is away for the weekend for an event at Laoag City, north of the Philippines, about 10 hours travel by land from Manila.
  • I still am not feeling well, physically. Clogged nose and slight fever still holding up.
  • Being the powerful goddess that I am, somebody has stabbed me on the back and is trying to bring me down by spreading rumors about me and Mr. Frost. Good luck to her.

I'm at the office right now (yes, on a Saturday morning) because I need to do some work wherein the details need to be from today's numbers. I am also waiting for the guys who'll fix the PC.

Ugh. I hope things will get better soon.



Payoneer Schmayoneer
Wednesday, February 13, 2008
Last month, I absentmindedly applied for Payoneer Debit MasterCard. I didn't even check the pricing tab because what registered to my mind was the free application and card delivery. What a big mistake.

Like I said, I applied for it absentmindedly, so after I got the confirmation email, I completely forgot about it. Until the payment for my paid opps came.

Imagine my surprise when I received an email from Payoneer with the subject line Good News! You have received money from [insert paid opp website here]! They automatically changed my payment settings from Paypal to Payoneer! Without a notification whatsoever!

Thing is, I need to activate my card first before I can load the payment I received into the account. And I haven't received the card yet. I sent an inquiry to Payoneer's customer support regarding delivery period of international cards. To be fair, their customer support was efficient and prompt in replying to inquiries. They said international card deliveries usually take 3-5 weeks. I planned to wait until 5 weeks since my card was approved (based on the date of the approval email I got) before I follow up on it again.

Sure enough, I got my card a couple of days after I made the inquiry. I immediately activated my card and loaded the payment I received into the account. As it turns out, there's a $10 activation fee. And $3 monthly maintenance fee. And $5 immediate load fee. So that's a total of $18 deducted from account as soon as I loaded it funds.

I checked their fees and pricing table, and I found that they actually charge you for every transaction you do. Darn it.

I thought of ways on how I can transfer the funds to my Paypal account because I was planning to save all my paid opps earnings so I can buy a nice, reliable breast pump. I wanted to convert every cent in my Payoneer account to my Paypal so I can avoid further deductions like maintenance fees, which are automatically deducted from the account.

After so many hits and misses, I finally discovered that you can use ALL (as in down to the last cent) of your debit card funds to send money through Paypal. I think your debit card must have some history of activity to be able to send money.

Bottom line, that's another episode that I'm charging to experience. If only I could remember to be more aware of my internet activities, no matter how trivial they may be.



The newbie poker tournament conclusion
This is a long-overdue post. Remember the newbie poker tournament some friends were working on? Well, it finally happened last weekend.

Despite all the help I got from friends, my poker pro partner, and even the Online Casinos that I visited, I lost the tournament. And it's not because of lack of understanding (although that sort of part of the reason), but more because of lack of comfort and too much pressure that my pro partner (and the rest of the guys) put on me.

You see, most of them were rooting for me because of my gambling background. No, I'm not a gambler in its fullest sense, but I used to "own" my brothers whenever we play another card game, "Tong-its" in Filipino, I dunno what it's called in English.

Anyway, the pressure got to me. I was doubting every move and decision I make. My bluffing was so terribly lame. Even I wouldn't buy my own act.

One thing I learned is that, to win a poker game, you need to have self confidence. Lots of it. I'm talking endless, unwavering supply of self confidence. Nobody will buy your bluffs if you yourself won't believe what you are bluffing about. If you waste your time questioning every single move or decision you make, you're better off playing Lucky 9 with the kids.

Oh well, I didn't lose money or anything. I was able to brush off all the trash talking with humor and smart-aleck comebacks, so I guess it's not that big a deal.

So much for trying something new.

EXHIBIT 007 - Gun-shaped egg makers
Tuesday, February 12, 2008
This is absolutely hilarious! Hell, I'd like to get myself one of these, just for the heck of it!

I got this from DVICE, which showcases many other incredible inventions and gadgets. They described these nicely-shaped egg fryers as:
These molds from Urban Trends come in a variety of shapes including the "over-Uzi" mold and a classic revolver. If leaving a fried gun egg on a loved ones plate is a bit over the top, then combine this with some Mickey Mouse pancakes and strawberry syrup for a little more cynical and comedic breakfast. Each gun egg fryer is constructed out of stainless steel, so you may want to avoid using it on the nice, Teflon pan, unless you really want to get violent with a loved one. Teflon is serious business.

Hehehe. Imagine Mr. Frost's surprise when I volunteer to cook breakfast, then offer fried eggs of these shapes to him. Ah forget it, he saw the pic while I was posting this so, there goes my surprise.



Budget woes
Monday, February 11, 2008
I mentioned awhile back that I need to be more careful in managing our finances because Mr. Frost's company (a subsidiary of the international company I recently moved to) decided to release employee salaries once a month.

Most companies in the Philippines have a twice-a-month salary release setup. Most common is on the 15th and the 30th of the month, but some do it on the 10th and the 25th of the month. But according to Mr. Frost's finance department, this once-a-month salary release arrangement has enabled big multinational companies to be more efficient and more productive. Sure.

Anyway, I've already drawn up a new budget sheet and adjusted it to this new cash flow. So far, we're on track and on top of everything. If we really stick to this budget until next payday, we won't need to find somebody to give us cash loans, which by the way, are very helpful for those who are in dire need of cash for unexpected situations and emergencies.

Anyway, our own finance department did a survey a couple of weeks ago, about adapting the once-a-month salary release setup. We were made to choose what setup we would be comfortable with, once-a-month or twice-a-month. I chose the latter because that would be more flexible for us, but unfortunately, those who voted for the once-a-month setup outnumbered us. There's no announcement yet as to when this will take effect, but I'm adjusting our budget sheet again, just in case.

Wish me luck, please. I want to overcome this financial struggle. :)

Touching Elephant Story
Sunday, February 10, 2008
Mr. Frost forwarded this nice, very amusing story to me. It was so good I just had to share it.


In 1986, Mark Murray was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Depaul University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The Elephant seemed distressed, so Murray approached it very carefully.

He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Murray worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.

The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Murray stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

Murray never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, he was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Murray and his son Tom were standing.

The large bull elephant stared at Murray, lifted its front foot off the ground and then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Murray couldn't help but wonder if this was the same elephant.

He summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Murray's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn't the same elephant.

Broadband all over the place
Recently, there have been discussions in one of the email groups that I belong to about internet connection. What is the best choice for internet connection? DSL or broadband?

To each his own, I say. What works for me may not work for you, and vice versa. It really depends on what your internet activities are and your definition of "best choice".

I am using wireless broadband internet at home, and so far I am satisfied with the connection speed. I recently saw a broadband package that includes a free hub, which will enable you to have internet connection for all your broadband-capable gadgets. Sans the wires, may I add. And that's very convenient, especially if you keep on lugging your laptop all over the place, working on your blog or online shop while doing chores around the house.

I hope they offer the same stuff here in the Philippines. Well, first, I hope I'd be able to buy my own laptop that I can bring around the house to enjoy my wireless internet connection with. :)



EON-Paypal experience conclusion
Saturday, February 09, 2008
A few weeks ago, I posted about my unfinished business with EON Visa Debit card and Paypal.

Last week, I got some updates.

Indeed, your EON Visa Debit card must have some credit (I'm not sure of the minimum amount) for Paypal to accept it when you add it to your list of credit/debit cards. A relative from the province needed to pay me for the computer I sold him, and I gave him my Unionbank EON account number so he can deposit the payment in that account. Very convenient, as this means I don't have to go to the bank anymore to deposit money just so I can enroll my EON card on Paypal.

Once the payment reflected in my account, I immediately logged on my Paypal account and tried adding my EON card. SUCCESS! I can't describe how relieved I am when I got the congratulatory message. I went on and applied for the Expanded Use Program.

On that same week, I tried withdrawing some of my Paypal funds to my bank account. Again, I used my EON account. Paypal said that depending on my bank's policy my funds should be transferred to my bank account in 5-7 days. I got it in 4 working days.

I think I'm one of the lucky few who didn't encounter any problems in withdrawing their Paypal funds. Apparently, hundreds experience pending withdrawals to Visa Cards that take more than 5 days. Paypal has already released an announcement regarding this, though. It's a very good thing they are aware of the problem.

Anyway, on the same day that my funds got transferred to my EON account, I called the Unionbank Customer Support to get my EXPUSE number. Thankfully, the agent was aware of it (I've heard people calling the customer support only to be answered by an agent who hasn't even heard of Paypal). So I got my EXPUSE number and completed my card enrollment.

Only then did I found out that Expanded Use program enrollment was done per card and not per Paypal account.

There. I've encountered some roadblocks in my quest to utilize both my Paypal account and my EON Visa Debit card, but I am so thankful that those roadblocks were small enough to overcome just by patiently waiting for several days.

I hope my future Paypal transactions will be this smooth, if not smoother.

Casino review sites
Friday, February 08, 2008
I remembered somebody asking me if I have tried online gambling. That was about a year ago. When I said no, she looked at me as if I just threw up all over her couch. She told me that I'm so not "in" with the new things on the cyberspace.

I have an argument, an objection is more like it, and I was ready for a night-long discussion about my awareness of the new and "hot" stuff on the internet, but I've never seen her so eager and enthusiastic to be finally showing me something on the internet that I let it pass by. She's not really into technology and modern age innovations so I gave in and let her show me her new addiction.

Online Casinos.

She showed me a lot of online gambling websites. She doesn't necessarily play on all of them, but she sure has an "informed" opinion of what's a good online casino and what's not.

Apparently, there are websites like Mi Casino Portal that provide information about online casinos available on the internet. They have reviews of these sites and descriptions of what features and bonuses those gambling sites offer.

Casinos on the internet are not exactly new to my ear, but the way my friend told me everything she knew about them, I felt like I've never heard of playing cards at all. I see ads of these online casinos left and right, and I actually ignored them and considered them as spam advertisements. It is only recently when I myself needed some information about poker that I found these casino review sites helpful for someone who are in dire need of gambling information.

I thank them not only for the information they offer, but also for giving my friend something to keep herself busy with other than bug me with her chaotic lovelife. :)

Beware, the Mindreader!
I used to be addicted to BlogThings. I could take their amusing quizzes and lose track of time any day. I finally stopped when I felt that I've taken all of the available quizzes already. But since that's about more than a year ago, I see that they have new stuff now. Check out what quiz I recently took. Hehehehe.

Your Superpower Should Be Mind Reading

You are brilliant, insightful, and intuitive.
You understand people better than they would like to be understood.
Highly sensitive, you are good at putting together seemingly irrelevant details.
You figure out what's going on before anyone knows that anything is going on!

Why you would be a good superhero: You don't care what people think, and you'd do whatever needed to be done

Your biggest problem as a superhero: Feeling even more isolated than you do now



Where to stay in New York, Dublin, and London
We just had Christmas, didn't we? And summer is almost here already? Time flies, that's for sure.

And while I'm preparing for my summer childbirth, the rest of the world is preparing for their summer vacations. Well, the rest of the country, at least, because many countries don't have summer until July.

Anyway, Filipinos tend to go to colder places during the months of March to May, when it is the warmest here in the Philippines. And among the most popular destinations are New York, London, and Dublin.

Of course, where does a tourist stay in a foreign country? If they don't have friends or relatives there, hotels are the number one choice. Thankfully, the mentioned cities have a variety of accommodation options to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

New York, for example, has Mandarin Oriental New York. It's in the heart of the city so you can be sure that aside from the comfort and luxury only a five-star hotel can offer, you are just a stone's throw away from any of the must-see places the city offers.

Westbury Hotel Dublin and Covent Garden Hotel London offer the same kind of convenience and fancy accommodation while providing proximity to scenic places and must-see landmarks in their cities.

If you'd rather save on accommodation and splurge more on the activities you can do in the cities, worry not because there are more affordable accommodations available for the budget-conscious travelers as well. Although you'll find them all over the place, it would be better to check out online hotel bookings to find the best hotel for your taste and budget.



Win $50 via Paypal from Blogetition
Thursday, February 07, 2008
Blogging has become a new form of media itself. Many advertisers and others who wish to get more product/service exposure capitalize on the most effective form of advertising (in my opinion) that blogging offers - word of mouth.

And many will go the distance just to be featured in hundreds, if not thousands or millions, of blogs around the world.

One of the newest ways to get exposure (both for the sponsor/advertiser and the blogger) is to conduct blog contests.

Take for example this contest from Blogetition.com. For a prize of $50 via Paypal, the mechanics are very simple. Just do any of the following:
  • You post an entry on your blog about the contest.
  • You leave a comment on their blog entry.
  • You bookmark the blog entry or submit it to your favorite social bookmark.
  • Submit a blog contest or competition.

What an effective way to get traffic.

I'll probably take a leaf out of their book and do a blog contest someday. I'll definitely do so, as soon as I find a sponsor for the prizes. Or I earn enough Paypal credits to share. Whichever comes first.

MommyOnTop Launches!
Tuesday, February 05, 2008
Let the nagging begin...

Finally, the project I've been working on (with interruptions, of course ) these past few weeks is now ready for it's official public appearance.

Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present, MommyOnTop.

MommyOnTop is a web blog aiming to pay tribute to working mothers who stay on top of their careers and family life, i.e. unruly children, messy house, and demanding husbands.

Seriously, And yeah, I’d like people to be aware as well that mothers/wives have opinions on almost everything that happens around her, especially on things that may affect or have an influence in her children’s development and her family’s well-being, and MommyOnTop will be my avenue for this. In short, MommyOnTop will be the blog of Meng the (Feeling) Supermom.

Ambushed Thoughts will remain to exist as my journal as Meng the Goddess, or the Clown, or the Gamer, or the "Anything but a Mother". You chose. But whether you like it or not, Ambushed Thoughts will remain as the blog of Meng the B*tch.

So my fellow supermoms, redirect your browsers to

My fellow evil-souls-who-are-plotting-world-domination, stay here. You are way too evil to understand my views as a mother and a wife.
