Search the Web and Plant Trees!

Long story short, I had problems with my Chrome, this happens when you let other people use your laptop/computer and stick their virus ridden USB to your com's port.  Lesson learned!  While (at that time) I still haven't really purged my Chrome with it's unwanted pop-ups , virus and malware, I downloaded Vivaldi. Vivialdi is a newer web browser almost similar to Chrome and Safari. It's also highly customizable, clean and easy to use.  I usually use Vivaldi as an alternate web browser especially when I'm checking several gmail accounts. 

Moving on, today as I log in to Vivaldi I was overjoyed to learn about ECOSIA.

What is ECOSIA?
Ecosia is greener search engine alternative for those who are eco-conscious.

So how does a search engine plant trees?
  1. Use Ecosia to search and surf the web.
  2. Those searches will then be translated into ad revenues.
  3. 80% of those ad revenues will then be donated by Ecosia to support tree planting programs around the world.
  4. Those trees would then be planted in the world's most environmentally threatened areas.

CHANGE : Blogger to Wordpress and vice versa

Background Painting from Elise Blaha Typepad.


For the longest time now, I wanted to export my blog from Blogger to Wordpress though I still plan to continue my blog here (at my old address).  I just felt that I need to use Wordpress as my initial blog address, these are my reasons why...


  1. I'm starting to realize that I need a portfolio website, so why not make a 2-in-1 site... And I have envisioned this fab Gregielaine site. But here's the thing I'm not that great in customizing Blogger, however I do know some tricks for customizing Wordpress.
  2. I feel that Wordpress is also more flexible and would suite a lot better for my future endeavors than Blogspot. Like I know in the near future I would love to sell some stuff.
  3. I also love the flexibility of Wordpress, I can place a blog - text blog/journal/diary - or a blog gallery or vlog all together in one place -- not so sure how well Blogger can provide for a multi-medium, super flexible site.
  4. Plus my Google Adsence stopped -- paused -- halt -- (idk what's the best word to use) when I made my third party domain. 

I feel that this change would be super refreshing since I have my blog here since 2010 (?) and I wanted to up my blog since I started to attend blogger events ...but like I said I would not be shutting my blogger down. I would be reposting from here to there and there to here. 

It would be an evolution, a metamorphosis in a sense, for me.

Change is good especially if it's for positivity and growth.

Mobile Prefix Number in the Philippines

Had it happen to you that you're using an all text promo for a specific network and you were left stumped which prefix number is for what network? I always get confused especially now that there are tons of prefixes networks are pushing out because of the rise of demand. I made a list of mobile number prefixes bellow with it's corresponding network. This is very useful for those who often subscribe to unlimited text or call services and for confused people like me.
















 0999 (old UMobile Prefix)











I will be updating this list from time to time, depending on the information I can get my hands on. If there are any inaccuracies, please let me know through  the comments section.

A Diary to Japan 2016 : Multiple Entry Visa

I just received a wonderful news today, finally, my Japan Visa was approved! Since this is my second time to be traveling to Japan -- kinda traveling to Japan annually starting last year -- my Visa was upgraded to MULTIPLE ENTRY.

Now wait for a second, it doesn't mean that you have to travel annually to get a multiple-entry visa. It just means that the first time you would be traveling to Japan you visa would most probably for a single entry.

However, when you renew for your second trip *hallellu*
Multiple Entry Visa!
Good for 5 years!

So what are the PERKS of having multiple-entry visa?
To start with, you wouldn't have to go through all the grueling task of renewing a visa. From gathering all your documents from school/work/bank, getting a more or less "legit" itinerary, and going to the traveling agency to pass all the requirements (I dread this part coz my travel agent's office is quite far from my place).
Second, you wouldn't have this fear of getting rejected -- your Japan Visa that is! You can just book your ticket and hotel with a breeze!
Third, anytime you feel like going to Japan, everything would be a lot simple and fast. Just pack and go!

So what are you waiting for? Let's go and have and go on an adventure to the Land of the Rising Sun!
