Survivor Philippines Premiers on GMA 7

My entire family - Henry, me, Keisha, Nicole, and my mother in law stayed up late watching the pilot episode of Survivor Philippines. I watched the first few seasons of Survivor in the US, but I eventually got tired of it. I wanted to see how the Philippine version would be different.

For starters, Henry noticed that all of the contestants were obviously physically fit - sporting six pack abs for the guys and flat bellies for the girls. I guess they really chose people who were physically fit and those who could obviously survive the challenges.

39 days in Koh Tarutao Islands, with no personal belongings except for the clothes they were wearing seems like a challenge. And if that isn't hard enough, their very first challenge was to jump off the boat they were on and swim something like 800 miles to the island. Jace finshes the race first, followed by Zita, who is becoming to be my personal favorite. Zita seems like a real person. Her occupation is to launder clothes of other people to make money She is also a single mom. I don't know why, but she seems like a survivor in real life to me.

I hope to follow the rest of this series to the end, but it may be a challenge as I work at 1am. I also hope that Zita doesn't turn out to be a monster in the following episodes.

It's TV Time 2008!

Identity -- You

dNeero-ites Want to Know!

dNeero is becoming a favorite among the sites that I write for. Why? Because it's a great way to earn money through blogging. You answer a survey, the topic of which varies, and then you post the answers to your blog in the form of a post and that's it! You just need to generate a certain amount of traffic to that post for a certain number of days and then you get paid! After you make the blog post, you just sit back and wait for the money to roll. Isn't that a great way to make money through blogging!

My Favorite Great American Seafood Recipe

The Great American Seafood Cook-Off 2008 theme is Showcasing 5 Star Chefs and Domestic, Sustainable Seafood Recipes. Out of the 5 recipes in the said cook off, my favorite would have to be the one by Chef John Currence from Mississippi. His recipe is entitled the Mississippi Redfish Courtboullion with Seafood Dirty Rice.

Before I took a look at the ingredients, the images were the first things that I saw on www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com, and this dish served in this small black pot just caught my attention from the start. And since I am a die-hard bacon fan, knowing that it had bacon in it made it a winner for me.

What I also like about local redfish is that aside from the fact that it's fresh, it also often costs a lot less than other imported fish out there. This particular type of fish is also not that bony, so it's not a drag to eat. Since it's also local, you can be sure that the fish tastes great and it's always fresh. Plus, by buying local food that is easy to buy and obtain, you also get to support local fishermen and the local market as well.

I'll most certainly try making this recipe myself, probably on my day off from work or when I have time to drop by a local supermarket to complete the ingredients. I'm also dying to know what redfish and okra taste like when together.

So for everyone who's reading this, you better drop by www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com and take a look at this recipe and the other four recipes as well. If you vote for your favorite, you also stand the chance to win a trip to New Orleans.


SocialSpark is Back to Normal

I was finally able to withdraw funds from my SocialSpark account. I had trouble cashing out the money I earned blogging but I was finally successful. A representative from SocialSpark replied to my emails saying that there shouldn't be any more problems with cashing out. And I'm glad the payout problem was resolved.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have any payout problems with SocialSpark in the future.

Ang Kaibigang Tunay - Keisha Zacharie B. Macapagal

I finally retrieved the video of Keisha performing at school. Well, it may have been accidentally deleted, but I'm glad that we finally have it. The video ends abruptly though, and there's one more line Keisha has to say but the video ends. But all's well. I'm just glad I have a video of hers at her very first contest.

Payout Problems with SocialSpark

Since yesterday, I have been having problems withdrawing my money from SocialSpark. The site's minimum payout is $20, and my balance with them is $22.49. When I put the amount without the dollar sign, this error message appears:

Today, when I tried withdrawing my money, this time I put a dollar sign in front of the amount. This error message appeared this time:

I put in an amount greater than $20 but still I am unable to withdraw my money. Any blogger out there experiencing the same issue? Please help. I've been sending them trouble tickets but no one has responded yet.

I finally finished submitting my blogs to this really long list of blog directories. I've been working for days on it and I just finished this minute.

Well, I'm off for a cigarette break and headed back to blogging while my kids are still asleep. If you guys would also like to submit your blog to several directories, I found this really great list of blog directories. Work your way down on it, as it is not easy. Some are free, some are easy, and some require you to register for an account before adding your blog. Good luck!
