Coffee Breaks at Home

Posted on

I love hanging out at the veranda with a cup of coffee just to chillax whenever I get stressed or just want to have a little me time.

I love how peaceful and relaxing the place is. Sometimes I still can’t believe I am in the middle of the city cause the view is green.

No smoke from traffic.
No noontime paparazzis.
No early morning fights nor midnight riot.

Just quiet time and fresh air.

I am really loving this. 😉

Lenka – The Show

Posted on

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried
And I don’t know why

I am just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out
It’s bringing me down I know
I’ve got to let it go
And just enjoy the show

Faith, Hope and Love

Posted on

FAITH brings HOPE to find LOVE that would last forever

HOPE keeps the FAITH to keep the LOVE alive

Love.

Love…

er..

LOVE got me stuck and run out of words >.<

LOVE gives you HOPE to always keep FAITH and hold on

The Journey of My Ship

Posted on Updated on

I’m like a captain of a ship: the ship is my life, the sea is my journey.
I decide where I should be heading but sometimes
I just let the wind take me anywhere it please and just enjoy the ride.
And when the storms send powerful waves to knock me down,
I just pull down my sail and embrace its wrath and let it pass
because I know after the storm ends, the sun will rise and shine
and I could pull my sails up again.
The world is round, the sea is endless
thus life must go on and I’ll enjoy it til the very end.

Don’t let your life pass you by

Posted on Updated on

Don’t let your life pass you by
weep not for memories

There are memories that are so vague in your head. You barely remember what had happened, where you went, whom you are with. The pictures are blur but the feelings seems fresh. Your heart aches for something you can’t remember, longing for something unknown.

Time goes by.
Days.
Weeks.
Months.
Years.
Decades perhaps.

The good times you had with those people you love are all but memories you loved to reminisce. Photographs of happy moments together. Those smiles and laughters as well as the pain and tears lingers in your head. Sometimes you wish you could travel back in time to relive those moments to feel the happiness and sadness again. In some other chances, to be able to correct the mistakes that you’ve done.

Sometimes you contemplate, what could it have been if I have chosen the other path back there, down the crossroad? What could have happened? Where do I stand now? Will I be as strong as I am now? Will the journey be as spontaneous and memorable? And by destiny, will I be able to meet those people who played their parts in my life? Whom in their own little ways helped me grow.

Looking back makes you think, have I changed a lot? Did I learned the lessons that I should have learned? Did I became a lot wiser now?

It’s funny how you feel so much but you cannot say a word
You are screaming inside, but you can’t be heard

There are things that lurks in your head. Things that you wanted to say but you can’t. Maybe because of the circumstances or just maybe sometimes you are just to afraid to let it out. You don’t want to hurt anyone because you know the feeling of pain. You have felt how your hearts feels like it is being ripped off your chest. It pounds too shallow that sometimes it’s barely there and all that remained are the pain that just exploded inside of you.

There are words that are better left unspoken. There are words that needs to be expressed.

Sometimes you are too afraid to show how you feel. You choose to be mean to those people that you love. Although in your head, you’ve always wanted to hug and kiss them, show them kindness, compliment them, share them your stories about life. But in the spur of the moments, you always choose your bad side.

You oftentimes judge the people you love even if they haven’t done anything yet. You can’t moved on from the mistakes they have done. You can’t take another step further in forgetting those nightmares and start all over again. And most of the times, you feel like they are more of a stranger. You don’t know anything about them. You wanted to know more about them but your head hinders you. Your heart wants to but you don’t.

Just a step forward.
Just one little step.
An itsy bitsy baby step.

You wanted to do a lot of things.
You wish in your heart you could move forward.

Memories…

You wanted to share a lot of it with that someone. You want to be able to remember them forever both the good things and the bad.

But you always choose the life without them.

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose

Soothing Christmas Songs

Posted on

As I listen to these songs, I could imagine myself sitting by the veranda, sipping a hot choco, staring blankly at the sky, gazing at stars in a cold Christmas night. I got a comfy sweater on me, embracing the cold chill.

I could also picture in my head those scenes from Christmas movies with snows and fireplace. Laughters and smile. Gifts and candies. Tables filled food (*yum*).

Happy. Sad. Relaxing songs.

I’ll Be Home For Christmas – Kristin Chenoweth

Have yourself a merry little Christmas – Cristina Aguilera

Silent Night – Sixpence None The Richer
I love the music video and their rendition of the song.

Silent Night – Sarah McLachlan

Josh Groban – O Holy Night

codingcereal hacked

Posted on Updated on

just wanted to share this unwanted incident

for those familiar and all, my dev blog codingcereal.com (wordpress cms) has been hacked this morning by “k i l o h  a  c k e r”. i have already contacted the support for my hosting and this is what she/he said that i hope could give warning to everyone

you will have to change password for the account and after that upload fresh and clean pages in your account
some possibilities for site hack are as follows
Client side PC gets infected with the virus from the search results.
Virus gets FTP username/password from the FTP clients.
Using the username/password, the virus then downloads the index files, adds the iframe code in it and re-uploads it to the web server.
for avoiding it please take care  of following things
Ensure that your code is free from such kind of vulnerabilities.
Change all the FTP passwords regularly and keep them safe and use a combination of alphabets + numbers + special characters.
Before updating the new password in their FTP clients, perform a full system Virus scan with a reliable virus scanner updated with the latest virus definition files.
you can use any good quality antivirus
bur before uploading scan all files also change password for the account and after that upload
you can always check raw access logs from cpanel
as well as check last login from cpanel
you can always check raw access logs from cpanel
as well as check last login from cpanel
you will have to re upload all files

i have currently deleted all db users in my database. as i have checked the wp_users for all of my databases, they have removed the “admin” user, changed all the user email and password which have all been taken cared of already.

before this event, for the past two weeks,
our internet have slowed down although the speedtest and ping shows a fast connection
when using google search both direct to the site and the search box in flock and firefox, captcha form kept displaying up to a point when we are no longer able to use google

in the past, i have experienced using avast alert messages warning me about unwanted email sending to a bulk list of unknown emails which later on i learned was a virus that installed itself to the local pc then like a parasite, took advantage of your internet connection to send spam emails.

i am planning to change my ftp client in the future and go back to avast, currently im using avg which has never detected even a single worm for the past few months that i have installed it in my desktop.  :-\

i am worried with the frequent hacking events lately
