Posted in Home Front, Techie Stuff on 13 October 2007 by Leah

Hi everyone!

We finally have a domain of our own. Please redirect yourselves to our new home in the world wide web. Don’t forget to update your links as well because I will be deleting this blog soon.

Hope to see you there! 😀


My Desktop

Posted in Home Front, Meme, Techie Stuff on 28 September 2007 by Leah

I’ve used the first (and last so far) digiscrap layout I made a month ago. Gosh, was it only just last month? It feels like eons! Anyway, there are actually lots of pictures to choose from but I really like this dark look. I’ve always been drawn to the color black for some reason. Lots of icons too as you can see but most of them are useless. I prefer to use  quick launch because it’s more convenient. Most used icons on my QL is Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, YM, Nero and Real player.

Alright, I’m tagging Jean, Mik, Via, Era and Jacq. 🙂

Note: Copy Starts Here!

Desktop Free View Instruction:

A.Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. You can do a screen capture by:

[2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).
[3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of Icons, things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Our Needs

Posted in Meme, Techie Stuff on 5 September 2007 by Leah

I saw this meme over at Gloria’s blog. I thought it was fun so I decided to give it a spin myself.

Here’s what you need to do:
Go to, write your name and the word “needs” in the text box and click the Goggle Search button. Just for fun, see what comes out of your search.

  • Leah needs to shed the pounds and the sooner the better. (Uh, I don’t think so!)
  • Leah needs healing. (I desperately need to go to a spa!)
  • Leah needs a job topic. (Actually, I need lots for my project.)
  • Leah needs more training before she becomes the big star that she is GOING TO BE. (Pang-showbiz pala ako! 😀 )
  • Leah needs to raise more than $4000 to cover the cost of her trip. (Yeah, and we need it soon!)
  • Leah needs to change her lifestyle by incorporating regular involvement in physical activity. (I really do need a change of lifestyle. *sigh* )
  • Leah needs to watch herself on TV after she makes the rounds of the talk shows. (See, pang-showbiz nga ako! 😀 )
  • Leah needs to apply herself more. (Err, I don’t exactly know where…)
  • Leah needs to dream. (I agree! But how, when I’m usually sleep-deprived?)
  • Leah needs a house now. (… of our own. Need I say more?)
  • Leah needs more sleep than she gets and can be a handful if she’s tired. (‘Nuff said!)

I enjoyed doing the meme so much I googled J’s needs as well.

J needs…

  • your votes again for most attractive man of the month.
  • an adoptive parent who will be patient with him.
  • a family that will provide structure
  • to put the personal s**t or feelings aside
  • support and encouragement to be successful
  • as much freedom as possible so he can continue to explore and push his own boundaries

Hmm, google’s got some pretty hardcore and personal stuff there for J. Not as much fun as mine was. 😐

Alright, your turn. Let me know if you did the meme and posted the results in your blog so that I can hop over to your site and see what you’ve come up with. Good luck! 😎

Scrappy me?

Posted in Digiscrapping Adventures, Mommy Diaries, Techie Stuff on 16 August 2007 by Leah

Well, well, well… Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d give digiscrapping a go. I suppose the creative bug bit me this morning and I soon found myself buried in tons of paper, embellishments and alpha’s. This online tutorial also made it sound pretty easy so I finally gave in. While Erin was napping away, I took the golden opportunity and by late afternoon, I came up with this…

Okay, it ain’t much, being a novice and all. But I’d love it if you can honestly tell me what you think of it. 🙂

My Lakbayan grade is C-!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out at Lakbayan! (Created by Eugene Villar.)

Baby Number 2

Posted in Humor, Meme, Techie Stuff on 19 June 2007 by Leah

No, I’m not talking about a real baby and no, I am definitely not pregnant once again! 😛 Thought I’d try the Knocked-up Babymaker which was featured in Jean’s blog.

baby number 2

Hmmm… so this could possibly be the face of Erin’s potential sibling. The bub’s got my eyes; the other features belong to J. 🙂

Tip for those who’d want to try it out: choose pictures with the parents facing front for a less ‘mutated’ offspring. 😛
