2 tablespoons water
½ cup sugar
¼ cup rum


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit.

  3. Place the cake mix, pudding mix, rum, oil, water and eggs in a large bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping the sides down again if needed. The batter should look think and smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pan in the oven.

  6. Run a long metal spatula around the edge of the cake and invert it on a serving platter. Poke the holes in the top of the cake with a cake tester or a wooden skewer.
  7. Prepare the glaze. Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt it over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in water and sugar. Increase the heat to medium and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and let the glaze simmer until thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the rum.
  8. Spoon the glaze over the warm cake, allowing it to seep into the holes and drizzle down the sides and into the center of the cake. Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing.

Mommy Dionisia D. On the Spotlight Again

Even you like it or not, Dionisia Pacquiao, now called Mommy D, mother of 7 times world champion in different boxing division Manny Pacquiao is on the spotlight again. Many had been raising their eyebrows for her talent in dancing, and now her acting is also on the big screen, even her singing. I remember on my first writing about mommy D, which called attention of some people where some has negative comments, but some also have tack full phrases about her.

Well, she now proves her best as a mother and a celebrity. And take note with the role as a mother of delicious Sam Milby. Likewise, co-starring of big celebrities like Ai Aid de las Alas and Erap Estrada. You can’t only seeing her dancing on the youtube site, but her role in the movie is another break for her. After so many product endorsements beyond a lot of criticism about her look, acting in the film is such an achievement. But do you know what I like her? It is her natural acting, and her guts to answer, as well as to face the camera without a hint of shyness. She really acted as one of the celebrities in the movie industry. I just hope that Mommy D won’t be blinded, and can’t forget that in the new world, which she now getting into has no real things or no real friendship. Most of all, she should not forget that celebrity world is like a plastic world.

Good luck mother and Bravo, according to Boy Abunda.

What Are Words You Should Not Say At Work

The most safety guidelines in order to avoid conflicts with your co-workers and even to your boss are the phrase that says, “Think first before you speak.” In such a way, you can’t hurt anyone, and especially you will not put yourself in a dilemma.

Moreover, to definitely avoid from any negative comments from your officemates, learn about what are the phrases that you should not say in your work. These words can help you on keeping your job, and even make your boss to think positive things about you.

Make these phrases as your guidelines for your career development. These are very effective and useful for your general improvements. According to Robin Ryan, author of 60 Seconds & You’re Hired! , avoiding these phrases to utter in your office will also help you smoothly climbing to the ladder of success.

Here are samples of phrases that you should not speak out in your Work area:
Cited from Cosmopolitan Magazine, October 2000, page 134.

Don’t say:
“That’s not my area.”
“Employers are looking for people who are flexible, adaptable, and willing to learn anything related to the position, “says Ryan. So, pitch in whenever you’re asked and you’ll reap rewards.
“I’m too busy.”
You’re never to busy to say yes to your boss. If you’re feeling overloaded, chances are that you boss is too, so don’t expect sympathy. Reprioritize and put his or her latest request at the top of you list.
“I don’t know how to do that.”
On the job, saying you can’t is equivalent to saying you won’t. Instead, ask around for advice, consult a manual, or use whatever means necessary to figure out how to tackle the task.
“I totally forgot about it.”
By saying you “forgot” to complete an assignment, you’re either saying you didn’t take it seriously or you head’s in the clouds. Skip the lace excuse and promise to fix the problem to save face.
“I’m going through a personal crisis.”
Don’t blurt out your personal sagas at the office. If it’s a serious issue, request a one-on-one with your boss to explain, but otherwise, don’t expect to be dismissed from work to deal with your dramas.

Well, how do you find it? You think, it helps you to success? Certainly yes, and good luck. Keep on!

How To Choose Your Caregiver

Our loved ones are the most important people in our lives. Our children, elders like parents, grandparents and anyone of the family members who need special cares deserve to be cared with love and compassion. This is the reason why you have to wisely choose your caregiver at home.   

Because of the fast changing life style in our world today, everyone needs to work in order to sustain the needs of their family, and surpass the demands of life. Children have to be left behind the house alone, while parents have to work whole day. Old parents have to be placed in a home for the aged against their will, or maybe they have just stayed behind their home door, and live hungry. Anyone can't be with them while at the same time work. But can’t you feel pity for them? Or the best question is that do you love them? If your answer is yes, then get a good caregiver for them.

Most of the families in all developed country are busy. However, they are hiring someone to be with their kids or elders at home. Some countries like USA, Canada and any other improved states are already hiring caregivers or trusted nanny to care their loved ones. They get caregivers from India, Singapore and even in the Philippines. No wonder the demand of this profession motivates businessmen to facilitate training school that train the aspiring caregivers. Moreover, it is not enough that your prospective caregivers are well-trained, but also they must have qualities of a real caregiver.

There are already many families who already hiring caregivers for their loved ones, but many also had been reported to be abused by the caretakers. Kids are locked up. Old parents were uncared and hungry because of their cruel as well as uncompassionate nanny. There were employers’ loved ones being knocked on their heads, and any other forms of abuses are being done. This is the fact that anyone must considered about hiring caregiver. But what are the bases on choosing your caregiver?

There are many ways that you can detect your caregiver’s behavior. First is by conducting one on one interview. During the interview, you can ask anything that comes out your mind. You don’t need to be professional interviewer, but ask casual questions to bring out your prospective caregiver’s best personality. You have to observe her or his physical response on your question. Look directly through her or his eyes. But do not scare your caregiver. You can also judge them through the choices of their words that correspond to your questions.

Second, check your caregiver’s family background such as family history. If she or he has unpleasant family history, the possibility is she can acquire difficult personality. However, you cannot judge the caregiver that way too. You have to put yourself into the situation and wait to observe how he or she reacted on the situation. In such a way, you can get some clues either good or bad. Still, it is you to judge.

Third ways on knowing your caregiver is that you have to ask her educational background. In the same way, you can learn her or his interest in life that can be possibly adapted by your kids or influence to your elders.

Last but not the least; investigate your prospective caregiver’s behaviors towards the helpless people. Know if he or she is empathetic not just sympathetic one.  If he or she loves children and respect elders. In such away, you can get the idea if who are those good caregivers for your family.

These are the tips that you can apply in choosing your caregivers. Learn and be wise in choosing caregivers for your loved ones.

Mommy Manny Pacquiao – Fairytale Dionisia Pacquiao

Who is Dionisia Pacquiao? She is nobody but not anymore. She is now known to be the mother of pinoy champ, Manny Pacquiao.If people see her image they could not believe that it is Dionisia, who now a sensation product endorser and a talk of the world. No one ever expect her to reign among all mothers, and surely even herself was also been surprised with what she is now.

No one ever known about Dionisia Pacquiao not until her son decided to enter in the boxing arena.

Way back to the history of Dionisia’s family. Aling Dionisia is an abandoned wife, with children who needs to be cared by her. She worked harder to get enough money for food and their immediate needs. When she was interviewed, it was mentioned that she washed clothes of their neighbors so that she can buy foods. She also brought her children to the sea and gets something that her family can get to survive. You can ever imagine what else Dionisia had done to her life in order to surpass her day to day life challenges with her children. But it is Aling Dionisia’s perseverance, strong faith to God, and her loved to her children are her inspiration to get what she deserves now. It is obvious to her strong and determine image.

During her son’s fight you can’t expect her to watch the show live. You can see her praying so hard that her son would not be hurt. Of course, she is praying for a win but above all is her son’s free from wounds or bruises. She don’t focus too much about the money and crown, rather she is wanted to see Manny’s safety. She is the picture of a mother who always loves her children no matter what, either to loss or to win.

Dionisia Pacquiao, I can say deserve for honor being a great mother. With all the hardship she’d experienced, which resulted to have a successful professional boxer son, who also have a strong faith to God. It is enough evidence that despite of her difficulties she never forget to teach her children some beatitudes and good virtues. She taught them to be strong even in the midst of life struggle. Now, you can see all her glory of being a mother of a boxing champion. Abandoned and isolated wife, but now become a reigning mother in the country.

Yu can see her now smiling, happy and a picture of a contented mother. Seeing her children in good life status, sharing her life to fellow Filipino mothers, and even influencing the people her courage, regardless of her gender. She never ashamed to show the world who she is. A province woman, tongue tied, and with slang accent. She is really the example of a courageous Gabriella.

Dionisia Pacquiaois really have a fairytale mother life, where her love of her children is the only investment. You can watch Cinderella fairytale movie, little mermaid, and name others. But the life of this woman is the fairy like story in the real world.

She can smile now, ride expensive car, wearing fabulous jewelries, even wealthy dress and shoes. Surely these are not all she wants but her children.

Certainly Dionisia Pacquiao is the mirror of great survivor and loving caring mom.

Encountering Not So Good Nor So Bad People

No one really can be called, as good person, but good and bad will anyhow, be considered, because these characteristic always, go together in the person’s personality. There is no perfect but it is not, anyhow an excuse, in order to hurt other people.

In my life, I’ve been meeting different kinds, of personality some are nice, but not really good, but most of them are users and always taking advantage on me. However, am not good too, because every time, those kinds of people will back fight on me, I also reacted, not in violently way, simply by just, responding the vile, they spotted on me, back to them. They had done it, so they deserve it too.

The Bible said, “Vengeance is not ours, but its God,” yeah that is very right, however there are also situation that somehow, urge you to do the things, which not really yours, especially, when the people who are throwing you stone, are those, whom you think your friends. But they are worst people, who are snake and just pretending, to be human. How sad. That’s really sad, in trusting people like them. Full of jealousy that lead them, to think against you that, you never had done, yet they are saying you did? It is such a disastrous and disgusting people. Full of envy, in their heart, who are trying, to ruin relationship, of others on friendship, loves and names it.

Cheap little monkey, why they could not understand that, their life could not be mine and mine could not be theirs. They have an envious heart, look at them when they’re succeed, and they will treat you, as worm scrolling on the dust. Good luck to them anyways.

Encountering not so good nor bad people that would be alright, anyhow since you can learn from them, but please just focus on your own lives, do not care others lives, especially mine. Just go, go, go wherever you want to be. That’s your life and this mine. Can’t you see that we’re not related? Anyhow, its your life anyway, I just feel pity about you, of having a small mind. One friend of mine gives me, this line:

Small mind talks other people
Average mind talks something
But with great mind talk knowledge and ideas

Search yourself where you belong on these. But what you did I can judge, you are small mind. Think and improve, stand your background, don’t step down, when it is not necessary, think great things and goodness for others.
