Meet my screen buddies! =) Those are just some of my screensavers/wallpapers. Webshots has been providing me daily good stuff that I can post on my screen. There are a lot of photos to choose from, uploaded by thousands of members from all over the world. Obviously, my favorites are wonderful nature photos. I am always amazed at the splendor of nature. Mountains, sunset, sunrise, close up shots of animals, lakes, rivers… they always look magnificent to me. I am always awestruck at how wonderfully-made nature is. ^_^

Nature photos are very relaxing and can be a good destresser. There are times that my screensavers make me smile, especially after a gruesome meeting or after dealing with a hated officemate. =P People who drop by my area also find the photos nice.
"Kei, ang cute nung rabbit!"
"Uy okay yan ah! Totoo ba yan? Ikaw nag-picture niyan?"
"Ay ang ganda niyan" (sunrise pic is a blockbuster =P)

You can also download 'Webshots Desktop' for free. It is used to organize photos downloaded from their site, set wallpaper to change from time to time and configure screensaver settings. You also have an option to display calendar on your desktop.

Try subscribing! =) If you love to take photos, you can also be a contributor by uploading pics. =) They have a free subscription, but for free account, there is a daily download limit of 5 photos per day. =P I'm fine with that anyway. =) Five wonderful nature photos per day are more than enough addition to my screensavers/wallpapers collection. =D

Gadget Talk

I got a new iPod iTouch. It's almost one-month old now and I'm really lovin' it! ^_^

I have long wanted to have "something portable" to watch movies and TV series with. Fortunately, our company offered iTouch promo at discounted price last December. Payment is through bi-monthly salary deduction for 6 months, so I did not hesitate to avail of the promo. I think I was the first in the short list of employees who were able to avail of the supply. =P

Nikki is the official content provider of my iTouch. Hehe. First series was Heroes. Addictive Heroes!!! Next series, I don't know yet. Suggestions? =)

I have also been using the gadget to rehearse for our upcoming Easter Concert. I can't attend the Monday practices so I was just given a demo CD which I use along with the choral pieces in order to learn and memorize the songs. So useful! =)

Now, where to buy an affordable and quality case for this? I already have a silicon case (free for employees who ordered before December 31 ^_^), but I need another softcase or a protective pouch. Anyone here knows where I can buy something like that? =)


Two weeks ago, Ate and I bought a new cellphone for Mama (our Tita and second mother). We chose Nokia 6300 for it's slim style, user-friendly interface, basic features and not so expensive price. =) Red and silver combination matches her personality more as opposed to the pure black one. I also love the softcase that comes with the unit. =) Mama was so happy with it! ^_^ It's a bit pricey for a gift but nothing compared to how Mama takes care of us while my mother is away. =)


My phone is being so uncooperative these days. Some of the keys are already oversensitive while the others are so insensitive! [-( I had it repaired last year, but the "illness" is coming back. Huhuhu! I want another phone, just a mid-range phone, not so feature-packed, but not so basic. I'm choosing between Nokia 6120 (the pink one) or Samsung U600. I like the look of U600 but I still can't get away with the interface of Nokia. Haaay... good thing I still don't have the budget to buy any of them. =P Tiis-tiis na lang muna. =P


It's fun to have new gadgets, but it's also expensive! =(
