Having a Happy Relationship

RelationshipRelationships require focus, and the chaotic bustle of day-to-day life is distracting. What’s a girl to do? Start with these five relationship strategies.

Independence Keeps Things Interesting
Doing everything together may sound romantic, but the reality is, well, a bit boring. If you each venture out on your own to explore new hobbies and friendships, you can come together to swap stories about twice as many new experiences.

Pick Your Battles
Do you find faults in each other… all the time? It’s time to take a step back for a better view of the big picture. Before you nitpick, ask yourself this question: “In the grand scheme of things, is this really
important?” Your egos are equally as sensitive, and no one wants to be criticized constantly.

Forgive Each Other
It’s not a matter of who apologizes first. If you trust each other, you know that you generally have each other’s best interests at heart. Does that leave room for human error? Of course. Once you’ve acknowledged bruised feelings, recognize that the damage was not inflicted maliciously—and move on.

Laugh a Lot
Did you pay the credit card bill? Did you do the dishes? Did you pick up the diapers? Life happens, but, every now and then, dedicate some time to being silly and having fun: dance around your living room, eat burritos while wearing sombreros, have your own little wine and cheesy music party… The dishes can wait (trust me).

From flirty hand-holding to steamy sex, humans crave contact. The way you touch is what pushes your relationship beyond platonic boundaries—and reinforces your connection.

At Last I Caught Him Smiling..

After almost a month I got a picture of my son Mahriuz smiling. He smiles but I had a hard time taking a picture of him. I had to run around our room to still find and get my camera, after I got it the smile was gone. It was just this morning when this happend. His mom was talking to him while at the same time my camera was just beside the bed. Then suddenly poof a smile puffed out. But in the picture it looked like he wasn’t just smiling but was laughing, maybe, maybe not It was like 3-4 seconds long. But it was fu, his eyes are almost disappear, his dimples come out, his face becomes round.

He is getting bigger already. I am having a hard time taking care of him, specially when he goes to sleep. Instead of just closing his eyes, he cries and cries until he tires himself to sleep. He gives stress but at the same time he makes us happy. But that’s just normal he is still a baby and he needs a lot of attention.

Rumors: No more UMD for PSP2



Kotaku is reporting that a developer at Acclaim, David Perry, wrote this message on his Facebook and Twitter accounts:

“I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they’ve removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I’m excited!”

Now that message is rapidly making its way through the blogosphere. Of course, it’s unclear what it means exactly. As Kotaku says, no one knows if Perry has seen the new PlayStation Portable or is “just hearing rumors through the development community.”

At the same time, it wouldn’t be surprising if Sony were to shift away from a cumbersome optical disc system and move completely to flash memory storage (Memory Stick Pro Duo) and digital downloads via the PlayStation Network Store. Kotaku does bring up a good point in wondering how such a device would be backward-compatible (perhaps if you have the UMD, you’d be allowed to download a digital version of the same game?).

While there’s been a lot of chatter lately about a totally new PSP system, it’s still up in the air whether the next version will be a complete redesign (a true PSP2) or just another another incremental upgrade to something that would be called the PSP-4000 (we’re on PSP-3000 right now).

Kotaku and others are pointing to E3 in early June as a moment that would be ripe for a PSP2 announcement–which does seem logical.

Update: There was an update on this one and you can read it all here stating that it is real and the PSP2 may come out this fall. We will just wait if it really is real. To see is to believe..

Manny Gives Up Lightweight Title

Manny Pacquiao

MEXICO CITY (AFP) – – Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao has gven up his World Boxing Council lightweight world title.

Pacquiao, who is considered boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighter, cited his desire to compete in the super lightweight division as his reason for vacating his crown. Pacquiao is getting ready to face Britain’s Ricky Hatton on May 2 in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao (48-3-2, 26 KOs) firmly entrenched himself as a superstar and perhaps the sport’s best pound-for-pound fighter in December when he dominated Oscar De La Hoya with speed and accuracy from beginning to end, scoring an eighth-round technical knockout victory.

Beating De La Hoya was just one of a host of accomplishments in 2008 for Pacquiao, who also defeated Juan Manuel Marquez to win the WBC super featherweight title in March, then took down David Diaz to claim the WBC lightweight title in June.

Tom Clancy’s End War

End War

New games come out fast this day’s.. I did not expect this title would come out already this month. Anyway I am a Real-Time-Strategy fan so this would be a must have game for me. This title came out already from the XBOX360 last year. And now the PC version is out too. I highly recommend this game if your a RTS lover.


The unthinkable happens in 2016. A nuclear exchange in the Middle East kills 20 million people and cripples the world’s oil supply. Crude oil prices spike at $800 a barrel.

One year later, the threat of world-wide nuclear war is eliminated when the United States and Europe deploy a comprehensive space-based anti-ballistic missile shield. Russia soon follows with an advanced missile defense system of its own. Intercontinental ballistic missiles are rendered obsolete.

Russia becomes the world’s primary supplier of energy and experiences a massive economic boom. With its newfound riches, Russia quickly re-establishes itself as a major superpower and restores her military might.

Western Europe, with the notable exception of the UK and Ireland, unifies to create the European Federation. This new nation is destined to be a formidable 21st-century Superpower.

In 2020, the United States is on the verge of finishing construction on the Freedom Star, a controversial orbital military platform that will upset the balance of world power. The European Federation withdraws from NATO in protest.

Tensions between the European Federation, the United States, and Russia are building and will soon reach the breaking point.

The EndWar is about to begin.

Time Passes…

I didn’t know it was already Monday and I have not posted anything for the last three days. Time really passes by not to mention very fast.

My son’s gonna be a month old already. I hope his mom’s planning a celebration for him, even though there is no 30 in February. He’s growing fast, some of our relatives thought that hes was already more than a month old. He was 3.4 kilos when he was born. His mother had a hard time having a normal delivery. But thank God all things are good and well.
