As a parent watching and taking care of your children from childhood until to young adult is the best and most precious valuable time we spend to them. We only pass the human stages for only once , the time we spend to them is very precious.

Working from home is a great advantage since you cannot miss the special gatherings like in the school, birthday’s and other occasions. You can also cook nutritious and delicious foods and eat them together.

That is why being a freelancer is the best decision that we made.

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO CHOOSING CCTV SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS

If you’ve ever browsed through CCTV surveillance camera brochures with their dozens of options, product shots, specifications and varying prices, you may have been tempted to slap it shut and leave upgrading your security system for another day.

The vast array of CCTV surveillance cameras and recorders on the market can be daunting, making it difficult to decide which system would be best suited to your home or business environment.

We’ve unpacked some of the basics of CCTV surveillance cameras to shed light on ten factors to consider before investing in a security camera system.

1. Cheap is expensive

 

cheap cctv

Try to buy the best value for money CCTV surveillance camera system within your personal or business budget. It’s always wiser to invest in a good quality, small, entry level system that allows you to add more cameras later on than to rush out and buy an unbranded cheap camera, that could lead to buyer’s remorse.

A reputable security company will be able to offer you a range of camera and recorder options made by reliable manufacturers, including brands such as Hikivision, Axis, Sunell, Secequip, Visionline, Dahua, Samsung and Honeywell.

2. Check the warranty

Some small retailers selling unbranded cameras may only offer a statutory six-month product guarantee at best, which you might find yourself fighting for if the camera fails within that time frame. A reputable security company will sell CCTV surveillance cameras with a warranty of up to three years and offer either a self-install option or a professional installation service.

 

3. Understand basic camera capabilities

When selecting CCTV cameras it’s important to consider lens size, wide-angle degree and memory for data storage. For every millimeter of lens size, the rule of thumb is that this is how far away in meters the camera will be able to view its subject (focal length). The degree of a wide-angle lens will determine the field of vision and shorten the focal length as the angle gets wider.

4. Clarify camera type

Analogue cameras to High Definition (HD) and Internet Protocol (IP) cameras at the top end of the market. Fortunately, camera prices have dropped significantly with the advance of technology. This has brought entry level HD and IP cameras into the realm of the home and small to medium sized business budget.

What’s in my Hometown?

What is your hometown? This is what people usually ask if they want to get to know you or just to simply to find something to discuss with. Whenever I say that I’m from Tanza, I often get an odd look or a big question mark from their faces, as if they haven’t heard of it, followed by the questions, “where is it?”, “is it far?”. Approximately 2 hours drive from Manila, this town is situated along Rosario, Gen.Trias, Trece Martires, and Naic. Well, I can’t blame them, Tanza is just a little and quiet town in Cavite, not as well known as the other cities on the same province like Bacoor, Imus and others.

Tanza Holy Cross Parish Church

“So, what’s in Tanza?”, this is another question that I often get which also made me think and asked myself, what’s in my hometown? When I was in elementary, I can still remember being taught in our history subject the significance of our town in our country’s history. This is where Emilio Aguinaldo took an oath as the first president of the revolutionary government of the Philippines. Personalities who made a mark in our history like, Felipe Calderon, Justiniano Montano, and Antero soriano are also from this town.

August 28 is the feast of St. Augustine which is being celebrated in different parts of the Philippines among Catholics .This celebration here in Tanza is one of the most attended and popular in which a lot of devotees from different parts of the country makes an effort to visit and praise the miraculous saint. Aside from this event, 4 years ago, the municipality just started to have its own festival as a celebration of its founding anniversary being held during the 27th and 28th of February called LOHITOR festival. LOHITOR stands for LObo, the huge sky lanterns, HIgante, the giant paper machetes, and TOro, the bull mascot armed with fireworks chasing around people. Activities like float parade, street dancing competition, pageants, concerts and food bazaars make this celebration complete.

Speaking of food bazaar, Tanza’s very own pancit negra, pancit luglog and pancit estacion are just some of the delicacies that foodies should never miss.

Since this town is not too far from the metro, this is an ideal destination for short notice out of town getaways. We might not have white sand beaches but there’s a lot of private pools and affordable resorts to choose from.


So that’s it, actually there still a lot of things that I haven’t discussed. I just came to realize that my hometown has a lot to offer, a little and quiet town, but a place full of history and rich in culture in which a Tanzanian like me should be proud of.

Movie: JUMPER (2008)

Jumper (2008)

Disclaimer: There are major spoiler on this article and if hopefully you’ve already watched this film since this is way back in 2008.

SUMMARY: A teenager with teleportation abilities suddenly finds himself in the middle of an ancient war between those like him and their sworn annihilators. (Click here for the source)

First of all, I’m not an expert and this is all from my on opinion so if you do not agree with this article, it’s fine that’s normal so let’s start. This movie is about David Rice (Hayden Christensen), when he is still a young kid his mother disappeared without any trace and without saying goodbye. David lives with his father who become an alcoholic due to the disappearance of his mother.

Everything is normal since one day, David fell on a frozen river due to helping his friend Millie (Rachel Bilson)to get her snow globe that rolled out into the frozen river. David who is panicking and trying to survive don’t know what to do or think and suddenly he TELEPORTED to the town’s library without knowing what the hell just happened.

One day he realize that he has something that is not a normal kid or person has. He tried thinking of a place where he already went before and then, BOOM he got from one place to another with just his mind. David ran away from home with something on his mind. He rent an apartment went to a bank and ask to use the bank’s comfort room since this the way to the C.R. will give him a quick glimpse of the vault which he planned earlier which he is right, while walking and assisted by a security guard of the bank, David was able to see the inside of the vault that gives him the memory of the place.

Milli and David

That night David teleported from his apartment to the bank’s vault and get all the money all he wants. Fast forward to the future, David is living the life that everyone has dreamed of, luxury condominium unlimited supply of money and places to go with just thinking what is place looks like.

If you watched the movie I’m sure you will also felt jealous of David’s power to teleport from anywhere he want as long as he know’s what the place looks like, but he doesn’t know that he’s not the only one and someone is trying to kill all the Jumpers in the planet which is Roland (Samuel L. Jackson). Roland is the leader of an organization who track down Jumpers and kill them since he do not believe that anyone is deserving to have this ability who can play GOD whenever they want. Well David has done some crimes like the stealing from the bank, but he is a good person inside he was just been tempted to do these things since he was just a young teen then and I think I will also do the same if I’m on his position when I was a teenager.

David is not in the middle of an ancient war between Jumpers and Roland’s organization who wants to kill all the Jumpers. I will not finish the story for you to have something to watch 🙂

This is one of my favorite movie since this gives as a look about our fantasy of having the ability to go anywhere we want since I have problem traveling due to motion sickness, I think this is due to I’m not used is traveling too far. This movie also shows us that God will not give everything to us because even David has this ability, he does not have a complete and happy family like most of us has. He thought that he will be able to do everything without any consequences, but Roland appeared and tried to kill him. I do get Roland’s point since nobody should be above everyone and only God has the ability to be everywhere, but I think if they just talk to the jumpers about there ability, they might have got a much better outcome than just killing them since some Jumpers are good like David they might be able to convince him to help the country as an spy or whatsoever that they think to help each other to live together harmoniously.

Why is freelancing the best option for stay-at-home moms or dads?

Best Decision you can make for your family

Modernization, Digital Marketing, Virtual Assistant, freelancing and work from home these are the words you will hear with millennial parents. With the continuous changing and modernization in every country so as the traffic and working environment. Some parents choose to have their kids in home schooling and mothers to work from home to be save from bustling and hustle of commuting.  And why not?

Modern mother today wants to spend most of their time in taking care of their kids and watch over them as they grow. The challenge in finding house helper you can trust to assist you and help you in the house chores is more difficult in this time. Specially if you are entrusting them with your children’s welfare and safety. Spending more than four hours of travelling to work and home lost your time to spend quality moment with your children. These can be the reason of changing your mindset from working in the corporate world to work from home set-up.

Freelancing is one of the options a parent can have, working from home. This opportunity able the parents to earn money for the family and support the everyday needs and at the same time be able to provide support and guidance to their children.  Spending quality time with your family is the best reward your can have.

It is like being a boss of your own time since you are your own boss, you can continuously develop your skills and learn at our own pace and the decision is solely yours to make. Of course, not all the positive in freelancing is easy to overcome. There are some challenges one need to face individualy. Working from home needs a lot of focus and commitment.  Since you’re at home, many distractions may come your way. The challenge of finishing your task and not letting the sluggishness slow you down. Strong determination and undivided focus need to be owned in order to be successful in freelancing.

Low Cost Kiddie Birthday Pool Party

Low Cost Kiddie Birthday Pool Party

My nephew turned 8 this year, and after a huge party for his 7th birthday last year, we thought of having a small, intimate, yet fun birthday party this time around. Going back to Tubigan Resort was the first thing that popped up in our minds, because it’s just a cute and cool place for the kids to swim and have fun.

Tubigan resort is a public pool in Paliparan, Dasmariñas, Cavite. It has a lot of cute cartoon characters as statues which you can take pictures with. The resort has a total of three main pools –  all of which have slides, and two of them have water sprinklers or showers. they have a bunch of nipa huts that you can rent, and the prices depend on how huge the nipa huts are, and how many people they can accommodate. You can also stay at their hotel (yes, they actually have one) if you plan to stay there for 24 hours or more. Even though it’s a well-known public pool, they actually keep it very clean as well.

They have a bubble making machine, and the bubbles are made out of coconut!  So it’s actually safe if you get it on your eye or something.

What can I say about the customer service?  Well, they were very accommodating.Everyone greeted us with a smile,  and really helped us. Prior to going to the resort, I actually contacted their Facebook messenger, and within the day (about less than three hours from when I messaged them) they responded and we’re very friendly. When we got there, their employees were ready to greet us on the gates and even had a handcart ready for our food and bags, so that we didn’t have to carry them, they even pushed it to our nipa hut location and dropped off all of our stuff including in our nipa hut.

They had very reasonable rates too, and because it’s the month of August, it’s no longer summer here in the Philippines, so they had off season rates. We actually saved a lot of money because of this season, and if you ask me I actually prefer going to public pools when it’s no longer summer. One of the reasons is because pools will no longer be as crowded (because kids are back to school), plus I love swimming in the rain (gives a lesser risk of being sunburned since the sun is mostly concealed by clouds during this time of the year).

If you’re wondering how much we spent overall, for 8 people, I will break everything down below, but rounding everything up, we spend less than 3,700 pesos (about 75 usd) only. That already includes the ride going there and back, the entrance, the nipa hut rental, food and drinks. The birthday celebration was an overall success! Everyone, especially the kids, enjoyed every moment. So if you want to try Tubigan Resort, you can take advantage of the rainy season promotion until the end of September.
