Davao Bloggers Eyeball at PAGCOR

Last night, we were in the Pantawan Hall of The Grand Regal Hotel in Lanang, still here in Davao City. We were invited for a bloggers' fellowship night by the DigitalFilipinoClub particularly Janette Toral. The event was sponsored by Philippine Gaming Amusement Corporation (PAGCOR), a government corporation.

It was a great night. We learned some new things, met old (Rex, Bloggie) and new faces (Honey, Myrell among others). The food was great. It was not only great but it's free! Beer is free also! Not only that, there was a band and they have great music!

There was a free poker game which I didn't join because I don't know how to play poker in the first place. I have not played in the Casino every since! Hehehe. PAGCOR, the event sponsor also gave out 500 pesos worth of play card to eight lucky winners.

Thank you to Janette Toral for inviting us and to PAGCOR for sponsoring such a wonderful event.

Adventure in Seagull Mountain Resort

October 5, 2008. We had an escapade. We explored the beautiful Seagull Mountain Resort in Buda (along Davao-Bukidnon Road). Such a beautiful place!

It was a very exciting trip. We got there thru an elf (a light truck) passing the fantastic view of mountains and trees. The view kept us busy taking pictures while the elf is running. Eating cooked bananas while being amazed of the beautiful scenery.

As soon as we arrived the place, we immediately proceeded to the waterfalls. We had our breakfast there (bread filled with pansit canton that we ordered from Dencia's). We were so fascinated with the waterfalls and the very cold pool water. It's like swimming in a pool full of ice. Because of fascination, some of my friends who don't know how to swim and were afraid of swimming, conquered their fear. They grab their life jacket and enjoyed the pool!

We were fortunate also to have met Press Secretary Jesus Dureza who went there at that time with some friends. We had an opportunity to take pictures with him having the waterfalls as background.

When we got back to Davao, we had a massage at the Blinds Therapeutic Massage in Matina.

Indeed, a great day!

Peoples' Park

This afternoon, we went to Peoples' Park, the place were the old PTA ground was located. It's in front Casino Filipino in Apo View Hotel and also in front of Casa Letecia and the new Whaw Lechon Biik branch.

The site is very beautiful and huge crowd was there this afternoon. Maybe because it's a Sunday, a family day and payday. :) Trees are around the place and nicely paved with paving blocks. The children's playground is also kids' favorite place.

It's a great place and probably one of the places where Kadayawan will be celebrated also.

Try to visit there. It's also near the old JS Gaisano which is now Gaisano South.

4 Things Rich People Do

There are four ways that will certainly allow someone to reach their goal of becoming rich. First remember, whatever vehicle you choose to reach your goal there is always plenty for everyone. Second the old cliché is true, if your mind can conceive it, you can achieve it. Third you must have faith and that faith must be coupled with action. Last but not least, be ready for success. Speak as though you already have what you are seeking.

Rich people become rich by choosing a vehicle they can use. This vehicle is usually based on a certain talent that they posses, love to do and they can market. Two examples can be calligraphy or internet marketing. It is common to think...well, why should I start this endeavor, I'm sure there are many out there doing the same thing. The problem with this type of thinking is you may be the one person to take this talent into new heights. It is true that some ventures may have more competition that some others. However, no one can do it like you do.

Rich people make the old adage real "If the mind can conceive it can achieve. Any idea can be developed to the point where it produces some kind of income. The world is full of those examples such as: The Handy Man, and Web MD, The Eifel tower, the Empire State Building, and the pyramids of Egypt. If your idea of success is becoming rich, "firing your boss, or simply making some extra money, you must believe it can and will be done.

Riches come to those who have strong faith. The Good Book reads faith without works is dead. It is one thing to have conceived an idea. It is quite another to bring it to fruition. Each good idea that was carried to completion was done with faith. That faith was coupled with the work that had to be done and viola! One must also note, no work that requires faith was ever met without some type of resistance. Let's take Thomas Edison as an example. He had a vision, applied some faith added some work with the faith (ten thousand tries worth of faith) and he reached his goal did he not?

Nature seems to work in the sense that it doesn't allow success to reach us very easily. However, if we apply a dash of faith, a spoonful of tenacity and cup of work, success becomes something that we cannot avoid, whatever the endeavor.

Those who are successful have the common denominator of substituting the word if with when and they speak as though those goals have already been met. Instead of saying if I finish school or if I make a million dollars; they instead say when I finish school and when I make a million dollars. Words plant a powerful impression on your mind. The words you speak will determine whether or not you reach your goals. Choose your words wisely.

Rich people become rich because they have a plan. Know what you're going to do when the money starts to roll in. Write these goals down. Either you are going to pay this bill or that. Start that education fund for the kids, or pay off the house. Whatever it is, a goal is a dream if it is not written down.

Finally take action! If becoming your own boss or making supplemental income is your goal, click the following link and start working on your own home business now.

Apply the above advice and you will find success cannot be avoided. The Profit Lance system has taken the bugs out of starting a successful internet venture. All you have to do is follow instruction.
