    Maldives: Male

    Day 4 – Male Male is the capital of Maldives – it is 15 minutes away from the man-made island that we landed called Hulhumale. For day 4 – we decided to explore the small city & see for our self the description of the local that it is a crowded city. Indeed it was! Not with people I guess during our time because it was a holiday, but crowded because of the motorcycle!!! You couldn’t imagine the massive number of motorcycles around the city! I guess each person is having one. We visited the old mosque and tombs, the first presidential palace and few more tourists are such as…

      Today, #KusinaNiKayne presents my very own version of home-cooked, PF Chang’s Combo Fried Rice! … Ever since we tried this rice at PF Chang, we fall in love with it and wonder how to cooked it, so I googled and add my own improvement. You may also add beef strips if interested. A little Worcestershire sauce can add flavor and a little ginger too! Maybe a kick of spice will boost your appetite as well!   I have not added exact measurements of the ingredients. It is what I call, instinct.. hehehe “tancha-tancha lang”.

    Social Media 101 – Note to Self

    Photo credits from: http://www.seointl.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Internet-Marketing-Social-Media-101-Training-Dubai-UAE.jpg Social Media. . . Last night I watched ABNKKBSNPLAko (A Filipino movie with Jericho Rosales on it) and on one of the scene Echo who plays Roberto (Bob Ong) discussed with his bff Ulo (played by Vandolph) about people sharing their life on social media; “What they are, where they go, their wife, husband, kids, boyfriend, girlfriend, foods they eat, the places they travel etc. Is it a benchmark of a person’s happiness? Sometimes social media is being used to hide the real scene of a person’s life, even showing the world you are ok when in fact you are at a point of breaking down.…

    Exit – OEC

    POEA Online – Balik Manggagawa Online Processing System  We’re going home! !! Among the many hassles we Filipinos go through… (OFW to be specific) is the yearly visit to the embassy/consulate (if you could take a leave yearly) and get the so called OEC. OEC is – Overseas Employment Certificate.
