Entries for April, 2017

these days it's just difficult to get reliable househelp. longest stay with us was 7 yrs. but i guess times have changed. they would rather look for store help or factories. with that, we are left to fend for ourselves. i normally am used to just getting up in the morning and preparing myself for work. now, i have to wake up really early and prepare breakfast, clean a bit before leaving the house. not so difficult to do. but quite a significant adjustment to my daily sched.

i currently have someone who comes in daily to help around but she comes around after lunch. which is fine. but now i find myself instead of going out i'd rather be left at home and do household chores than going out and then coming back with tons of house work to do. it's like being abroad. even laundry places now have machines where you can just drop money and let it do it's thing. which i don't have to do as i have one at home. what i dread the most is ironing. i hate it. i can do everything at home except iron. not unless i don't have a choice.

on another note, i am just not in the mood to do anything today. i hate mondays! =(

due to a recent privacy issue i had on FB, i just got too paranoid in maintaining my social media accounts. i actually deactivated my FB account and just maintained twitter, pinterest and instagram..or those accounts where i have limited personal information that can be used by whoever for whatever evil purpose they are thinking. honestly, for someone who keeps in touch with friends on FB (well i maintained my messenger though) it was a very difficult move to deactivate. it's like being in the dark. i guess this is me on withdrawal mode.

i have to decrease my digital footprint lest someone wants to stalk. it's just too scary what people can do. i heard of a couple in Australia where their FB accounts were stalked and someone used their personal information to apply for a credit card. it got approved and the couple learned about it when the credit card bill was delivered to their home. another one, also in Australia, where people stalk their FB accounts and learned that they were out on vacation, so they ransacked their house, stole everything they can and left the family with nothing.

i didn't think these were possible. but these were real stories of people who are friends of friends that can vouch that they have heard of the stories first hand. in my case, nothing like that happened. but it's scary when strangers add all your friends and send messages asking them to tell you to contact them. it is downright creepy!!!

so there. on another note, the heat this summer is terrible! i just don't want to leave my airconditioned room or office. i mean you don't even need to move and you'd be dripping wet with perspiration. i didn't think i'd every say this but can the rainy season come forward please?
