    Natawa Na Lang Ako

    Natawa na lang ako sa nalaman ko.
    Dati akala ko dumalawa lang kami sayo,
    Yun pala meron pang pangatlo.
    Napaisip tuloy ako,
    Baka hindi lang kami ang tinalo mo,
    Hindi naman ako nagkamali sa pagtanto
    kasi pati may nobyo na diniskartehan mo.

    Natawa na lang ako nung nalaman ko,
    Pinaniwalang ako lang ang napupusuan mo
    Pero makalipas ang ilang araw napansin ko,
    May bago nang nagpapasaya sayo.
    Oo nasaktan ako, pero anong magagawa ko?
    Hindi nga naman opisyal, wala namang tayo.
    Kaya eto na lang, tatawa na lang ako.

    Natawa na lang ako sa na-realize ko,
    Parang lahat ng nangyari ay laro lang sa iyo.
    Diskarte sa mga babae ay pare-pareho,
    Inakala na ang pagsuyo ay totoo,
    Pinaniwalang pagtingin mo ay seryoso.
    Sa kabila ng lahat hanggang dito na lang ako,
    Walang ibang magagawa kundi matawa sa kalokohan mo.

  • TS4 DOLL HOUSE

    Adorable The Sims 4 Dollhouses

    There’s a new trend in the Sims community thanks to Tumblr user Smart Milk. They were inspired by isometric pixel art of rooms by JMW327.
    The trend, called “TS4 Dollhouses” is reminiscent of miniature dollhouse kits that are quite popular among crafters and miniature hobbyists.

    Recently, my YouTube and Tumblr feeds have been full of other people’s creations. They are quite impressive.
    Here’s a video made by Elliandra, a Sims YouTuber:

    Naturally, I wanted to participate. Here’s my take on TS4 Dollhouse trend:

    Beannie’s TS4 Dollhouse

    I went for a pink, girly loft kind of house. Instead of doing one room, like most people do, I decided to go for a whole house. I kept it simple and tried not to put too much decorations or clutter inside the house. I think I did a pretty good job!

    The Sims community is full of talented and creative people. It’s so much fun watching videos and looking at pictures of their creations. It’s amazing how a video game franchise could bring so much joy to people.

  • Wala Nang Mensahe
    Poetry

    Wala Nang Mensahe

    Paulit ulit kang tumitingin sa cellphone mo,
    nag aantay, nagbabaka sakali na nag message na siya.
    Inaantay mga mensahe na alam mong di naman na dadating.

    Wala nang mensahe na magpapaganda ng araw mo,
    naglaho na.
    Wala nang mensahe na magpapakilig sayo,
    kase wala naman siyang pakialam.

    Nagagawa niyang mag message sa iba,
    pero sayo hindi na,
    dahil di ka naman talaga mahalaga kagaya ng sinabi niya.

    Naglaho na ang mga mensahe na bumubuo sa araw mo at nagapapakilig sayo.
    Naglaho na, kasabay ng pag gising mo sa katotohanan na ikaw lang pala.
    Ikaw lang pala ang gustong makausap at makachat siya.

    Tanga

    Hindi ko alam kung pano ko sisimulan.
    Sisimulan yung bagay na tinapos mo na nga pala

    Naisip ko baka naman kasi mali ko,
    baka may kulang, baka ganito, baka ganun,
    baka sakaling maayos ko pa.

    Sa lahat ng baka sakali nagmukha akong tanga,
    ay hindi lang pala nag mukhang tanga
    kasi sa sobrang pagkabulag ko,
    naging tanga na nga talaga.

    Pinagtanggol kita kasi akala ko mali sila,
    mali sila na mahal mo naman ako talaga.
    Diba magsasama tayo, yan ang iyong pangako,
    pero eto ngayon daig mo pa napako,
    napako sa kasinungalingang hindi mo maipagtapat
    dahil hindi ka nga pala tapat.

    Oo tanga ako, tanga ako na nagmahal sayo,
    pero eto lang masasabi ko…
    “ako yung tanga na hahabulin mo”.

  • Balakid.
    Poetry

    Balakid.

    Balakid.
    Salitang pag binaliktad mo baka maiyak ka,
    Maalala mo yung panahong sinabi nyang “gusto kita”
    Yung araw na naisip mong sana,
    Sana ito na. Sana sya na. Sana totoo na.

    Sinanay ka nya sa araw-araw, gabi-gabi,
    Pinaramdam nya na ikaw ang kanyang minimithi,
    Pinakilig ka ng kanyang mga ngiti,
    Inawitan pa ang puso mong kinikiliti.

    Pero teka, makalipas lang ang ilang linggo,
    Parang, parang biglang may nagbago.
    Pagtingin nya sayo ay nag-iba, naglaho,
    Kung kailan nahuhulog na ang iyong puso.

    Wala ka nang magawa kundi magtaka,
    Mapaisip kung mayroon ka bang nagawang hindi tama?
    May nasabi ka bang hindi maganda?
    Para pag trato nya sayo ay biglang mag iba?

    Isang araw nalaman mo na lang may bago na pala sya,
    May iba nang nagpapasaya sa kanya,
    Ibang babae na ang kanyang hinaharana,
    Pero gamit ang mga kantang minsan ay sayo ikinanta.

    Bakit nga ba ganito ang tadhana,
    Kung kailan nagbakasali saka pa pinaasa,
    Isang malaking balakid ang hindi inaasahan,
    Salitang pag binaliktad ang syang tunay na dahilan.

    Di ka lab. 💔

  • Tumblr NSFW Ban

    Tumblr NSFW Ban

    In the later part of November 2018, Apple got rid of the Tumblr app from their store because of the existence of child porn material. This action immediately had a big impact on the platform, which quickly declared that it will prohibit all NSFW content by December 17, 2018.

    This sudden decision was quite a shock for Tumblr’s users, all of whom had become familiar with the freedom of posting sexually explicit content on the platform.

    Loads of several fandoms and communities are suffering from the effects of this content restriction. For one, Tumblr’s algorithm is flagging non-NSFW posts such as innocent art. Then there are some individuals saying that Tumblr is also removing the feature of custom themes, which is a huge deal for almost all of the Tumblr members who make use of the platform as a way to express their creativity, be it in their content or in the very theme/layout of their blogs.

    Artists who used to post their art on Tumblr are now switching to other platforms. I’ve personally talked to a couple of artists who wanted to move their original character art to Toyhouse because of Tumblr’s apparent self-destruction.

    Although sad, it’s what Tumblr thinks is the right thing to do and all we can do right now is either to bear with it and continue using the platform or to move on to other services.

    YouTube Rewind 2018

    Have you seen the 2018 YouTube Rewind?

    YouTube Rewind 2018

    Certainly the most disjointed and awkward Rewind of all time. A lot of significant events aren’t addressed, and plenty of famous content creators are not featured. However, the worst point is that they made it look like it’s “our” Rewind, even though the video doesn’t consist of content creators many people wanted. Also, the whole recognizing the things youtubers were undertaking for the community and using minorities in the video felt very forced completely contrasting as to what they have done previously.

    I personally think they said “Oh, let’s read the comments. That should give us ideas about what people want.” All they saw was Fortnite, KPOP, and other stuff that probably 9 to 16 year-olds wanted.
    The whole, “YouTubers have done great for the community” thing was severely forced into the video. They didn’t even mention Pewds who made a huge donation to a cause.

    The video was more about what trended in 2018 than actually making an impact to their viewers. It’s a rewind of 2018 after all, but it would’ve been better if they just didn’t jam that acknowledgement of content creators in there.

    PSA: Do Not Fall for Giveaway Scams on Instagram

    There’s been an influx of giveaway scams on Instagram and it’s becoming
    more and more ridiculous. A while ago, someone on my feed shared a signal boost for an account claiming to be H&M Philippines’ official account. Well guess what? It wasn’t H&M Philippines’ official account. As far as I know, H&M only has one official account and it has a verified check mark right next to the username!

    The fake account had gotten more than 60,000 followers all because they
    promised to give the first 30,000 people a 10,000PHP gift card. If that
    doesn’t sound fishy, then I don’t know what does!
    No company in their right mind would give away that much to so many people.

    What these scammers do is that they set up bait for people, such as
    giveaways, and those people blindly follow the scammers’ accounts hoping to win freebies. Once the scammers reach a certain amount of followers, they either change the name of the account and use it as their personal one or they sell the account to other people for a high price. Talk about being
    lucrative.

    I searched for the fake account that was doing this scam, but I couldn’t
    find it anymore. Either they have reached their goal and are now using the
    account as a personal account (with thousands of followers) or they have
    been reported and deleted. Either way, there are countless others who do
    the same thing. Here’s a new one that I found while searching for H&M
    Philippines:

    H&M Instagram Scam
    Fake H&M Philippines Instagram account

    Here are a few things to keep in mind if/when you come across accounts such
    as these ones:

    1. Remember that official accounts of big companies usually have a
    checkmark icon next to the username.
    2. If you think that it’s too good to be true, it usually is.
    3. No one gives out 10,000PHP or any amount of money above a thousand to
    over 5 people.
    4. Most accounts asking for a signal boost are small accounts looking for
    followers. They’ll go through ridiculous lengths just to get followers.
    This isn’t always the case, though.

    Do not fall for these scams. They are a waste of your time and they only
    feed the egos of those who make them.

    5 Jobs You Can Run From the Comfort of Your Home

     

    Making a firm decision to work from the comfort of your home can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make in the course of living on earth. There are thousands or millions of jobs that you can do from your home. Online jobs give you flexibility and more time to accomplish other things or have more fun with friends.

    I have met a lot of young individuals who desire to become business owners. Not just any kind of business owner, a ‘Work At Home’ worker. A stay-at-home entrepreneur sits and manages his or her business from his mobile phone or computer and hell of money than a lot of office workers. It’s a mouth-watering dream that can become reality if you really kick off in action.

    One major problem a lot of young individuals encounter is the problem of insufficient capital. The finance required to start that business and journey into the land of financial freedom. Nevertheless, this challenge should not stop you from living your dream.

    I believe your dream is bigger than any problem-you should believe it too. An exquisite man, Martin Luther King once said, ‘if you haven’t discovered a dream you can die for, you’re not fit to live.’

    5 JOBS YOU CAN RUN FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME

    1. BLOGGING

    Do you own a company, run your business or you plan to do freelancing? No matter the business you want to do, you’ll need a blog. In simple terms, a blog is like a metal tank, where you store every one of your precious stones in. If you happen to be a developer or web designer, you need to showcase your portfolio; that is where having a blog comes in. To a freelancer writer or online marketer, having a blog is one thing you should never overlook regardless of the state of your business. Blogging can quickly help you build your brand into a reputable one.

    Running a blog can give potential customers unpaid access to contact and connect you; you can also earn from your blog through Google AdSense, direct advertising or Affiliate Marketing. A lot of online business owners no make huge income from blogging alone.

    2. FREELANCE

    If you surf the internet on a daily basis, I am pretty sure you must have come across the term “freelance”. Being a freelancer gives you the opportunity to be your own boss; you set the rules and time. There are thousands of freelancers who earn jaw dropping amounts of cash on a daily basis simply by providing simple services like writing, drawing, singing, video editing, singing etc. from the comfort of their bedroom. Freelance entails you helping a person solve a problem he or she is facing. In return, you get paid for the service rendered.
    Just think of any skill you possess; chances are you can use it to make money online.

    To begin freelancing, simply visit sites like fiverr. Alternatively, you can try out forums by navigating to the appropriate section to advertise your skills works very well.

    3. YOUTUBE

    YT is another great job you can do online. YouTube is becoming fast over saturated but that doesn’t mean that you cannot make your own cash. Because of its strict policy and rules, not everyone can begin a YouTube channel. Not every person can afford a High-quality HD video camera, speak good clear fluent English and not everyone can get a nice pretty room for his or her video shoot. Lastly, a lot of youtubers quit after two weeks because they cannot edit a video.

    You need to get the required knowledge and tools for effective YouTube blogging. When you’ve embarked on the journey of building an active community online, the next thing is to monetize your channel. This can be easily done when you apply for Google AdSense.

    4. SELF-PUBLISHING

    Back in the days, to become a writer, you will need to soil your hands with inks, run around through varieties of press departments before you can have a single book published. These days are gone; things are a lot better now. The internet has provided you with a new way; you can now write your own book and publish on Amazon for free. As soon as people begin purchasing your book, you earn a commission.

    The gurus who are making thousands and millions of dollars through this may not like to expose to how profitable the business of self-publishing is. The best part of it is that you don’t even need to write the e-book yourself. You can easily contact a freelance writer who will handle that at a cheap rate for you.

    5. APPS

    App creation is one opportunity that is currently hitting cyberspace really hard. You think creating an app requires you to be a really good programmer. I am pretty sure you have quite a good number of helpful apps on your phone; wouldn’t you like to own one too?

    You need not have a high knowledge of programming. What you need to do is to simply think of an app that is sure to solve a lot of needs. Contact an established or freelancer app developer who will do just that for a little fee. Once set up, you can pay the required fee or pay less to a freelancer to help you put it live on Google Play Store.

    The best way to earn through the apps is through advertising. There are countless apps that are junks on Google Play Store. If your app is different and useful, it will surely attract positive reviews and rating.

    CONCLUSION

    Now that you’ve learned 5 best ways to earn lots of money from the comfort of your home. All you need to start any of the above business simply an internet connection, your mobile phone, and computer system. These are some of the best ways I earn cash online.

    The Sims Mobile Game Review

    The Sims Mobile game has been released worldwide! I downloaded the game and started playing right away.
    Here are my thoughts about it.

     

    The Sims Mobile
    The Sims Mobile

     

    It’s very charming. It kind of reminds me of The Sims Bustin’ Out and The Sims 2 for the PS2. You get to make a fairly customizable first Sim and then add a second one shortly after.

    Jobs and housing are chosen for you. It can get either annoying for some players, or really convenient for others.

    There’s an energy system where you spend energy to do actions. There’s no action queue like in the PC versions, and you can’t do different things at the same time. Once you hit your energy limit, you’ll have to wait for a few minutes for it to replenish. There are some things you could do to regain bits of energy, like, sleeping, taking a shower, or using the toilet.

    Moods don’t exist in this game. That means you don’t have to worry about filling up your Sims’ motives. No more social or bladder bars!

    They used music similar to those of the old PC versions of the games so there’s no doubt you’d feel right at home if you’re an old The Sims fan.

    For the most part, I think it’s quite similar to The Sims Freeplay. It’s all just a glorified waiting game with cute graphics to distract you. There’s always the option to buy in-app purchases to speed things up, but why would you buy a virtual double bed for 700PHP?

    Should you get this game? If you’re a The Sims fan, you’d enjoy this.
    Is it something you can play for months? No, I don’t think so. It gets pretty boring after a while.

    If you’re someone who enjoys idle/waiting games, then this might be a good one for you.
