Do you like freebies? Dumb question. I guess everybody loves freebies and I totally do. I discovered this site through My Lot forum where I am a member. Another member posted a discussion telling everyone that she has received loads of groceries for free! I checked out the site and they do give away freebies to discount coupons from food to body and bath to pet care. I have placed orders for freebies and I am waiting for mine to arrive. If you would like to avail of these freebies check out Thunder Fap. Hope you enjoy shopping for free! When you receive your freebies I hope you come back in here and share your experience. Happy freebies everyone!

Dogs Are Not Meat!

I am saddened by the plight of the native dog and how people here in some parts of the country treat them. I know this would sound gross to westerners but some people here do eat dogs and some pubs here specialize in dog meats to be served for their customers while drinking beer. Gross right? I cannot not imagine myself eating dog meat. I do not know if it's safe to eat dogs.

The reason I am writing this piece though gross is to appeal to the blogosphere especially to those bloggers who are truly dog lovers to help create awareness about this inhuman act. I certainly cannot stand this anymore. When I was 13 I had a dog she was snowy white with tan markings on her ears. One day she was able to get out of our gate without our knowledge. Feeding time came so I went looking for but could not find her. One stand by cab driver asked me if the dog I was looking for was white with tan markings on her ears and I said yes. He told me that a man in a car beat my dog with a club and placed her inside a sack. I asked the guy if he had gotten the license plate of the car but said he did not but was able to describe the make of the car. He added that he heard the man saying my dog would make such a good meat because she is clean and well taken care. I tried to look for my dog but I never found her. I believe she was eaten and served as meat!

I hope no one will have to go through this ordeal but I could only hope. Dogs are kept as pets and as a member of the household not to be butchered. Aren't there enough poultry and livestock to consume? I just hope that we would be one in saying no to this kind of business.

AAMM: A Trip Down Memory Lane

Take a little stroll down memory lane ...
all the way back to the hollowed halls ...
of your school years - the days of raising your hand,
taking tests, and making the grade ;)

My Grade School Memories...

  • I remember we were voting for classroom officials in first grade and I was begging everybody not to vote for me... why? because I thought that it would cost my parents a lot of money for the campaign should I get elected in the school student government!
  • I traded my beautiful new teddy bear back pack with an old red ragged doll back pack because it was red. I came home and got a a good deal of scolding from my parents!
  • I loved playing puzzles and pick up sticks with my classmates during recess period.
  • The hi-cut rubber shoes was in and I was in the first grade everyone was wearing it except me because my parents said that it was not part of the school uniform.
My High School Memories....

  • I competed in the school contest for my history class, would have gotten the first place but they counted the scores wrong, they missed to count the 3 points I earned so I just got the second place.
  • I was walking down the hall with my 2 close friends when I slipped and fell flat on my face and guess where? In front of the cutest guys in school! (blush)
  • On my junior year we had a field trip to the geothermal plant and to the only agricultural university in my place and it was exciting for all of us. But the trip was ruined as one guy in my class who sat in front near the bus driver had a very bad stomach and you know what happened! It was smelly the entire trip, we opened all the windows and sprayed all our colognes but the smell was still there. Will never forget this!
My College Memories....

  • When I was in freshmen in college I was first enrolled in a local college in my place before I transferred to a big university another state away. It was the time I was so wild, I'd cut class when I was bored to death and entice my guy friend in another class to cut classes with me ... one time he was in his chemistry class and I already cut my classes. I dropped by and played the devil and told him to cut class lolz... when his teacher was not looking he went out from the big window!
  • We had this teacher who was very kind but extremely boring. One time our class agreed that we will all set our watch to alarm at exactly 11:00 am as the teacher was fond of extending time. That's what we did and one of my gay classmate brought a real alarm clock! However, it never got into our teacher he extended time until 12:30!
  • There was this guy who courted me for 2 years. He was a foreigner and was also a ramp and commercial model. He liked me but I didn't, he used to really chase me and I found it annoying. Well, one day he came and I just didn't want to see him, so I told my friends to tell him I went home already. But he insisted that I was still around as my class goes off at 5:30 in the afternoon. I hid in the lady's toilet for 2 hours because he would not go! When I came out I smelled like the toilet!
