Doggy Buddies! - Only in The Philippines ;)

Where else could you find buddies that sleep together, and take naps at noon time? Only in the Philippines! LOL! These animals are actually stray dogs. They roam around the neighborhood, and just feed themselves on any kind of stuff that are edible for them. If they get lucky enough to find people who give them food, they will look happy and will then constantly follow them until at their doorsteps.

This group hangs out around my house. I caught them one time going underneath our car and catch their nap there. I guess, they are comfortable with the "car shade" from the sun's scorching heat. 

There was an issue about stray dogs in our neighborhood before so that my husband filed a complaint against them due to disturbances during the night! They howl and bark like crazy and sometimes you can just hear dog fights all night! They gave us sleepless nights! 
Since the start of construction of many houses in our area, many of the construction workers started getting some puppies (not sure where do they get them, but I heard some are pups being thrown away in a dumpster or pups that were abandoned by their mothers. So, they raise these pups until they start reproducing...crazy! And then, there were tons of them roaming around.

Then, there was a new rule that was implemented strictly against workers raising stray animals inside the neighborhood. Then, at one time, they couldn't seem to control these dogs that some became aggressive and were endangering the community, so they started killing them by giving them food poisons. I didn't know where should I stand about this, but I became speechless!
It was like I felt I should just stay neutral.

The next vacation, our nights were finally became peaceful. I still notice some stray dogs, but they were not creating any noise. I am not sure if these are dogs that are much more disciplined because they are trained by those raising them, hahaha!

New Voter's ID

 Got my new voter's ID from the mail few days ago, and was wondering why they sent me one and both national and local elections are not even here yet. Last year, I receive voter's ID twice in separate mails and was probably around 6 months gap. I can't complain, and actually I like the fact that they are really updating voter's profiles from time to time. 

I figured out my legislative district has changed from 9B to 9A. It doesn't make any difference location wise since my voting precinct is still the same. The only difference from the old voter's ID I had was the legislative district that was changed. I don't know what this means, but as long as I know my voting precinct, I am always good to go, right? lol! Silly me, but am not that politically inclined about these matters...{sigh!}.

By the way, I blocked the details on the form for security concerns. I still have to write responsibly, you know. 

Ciao! Til my next post. ;)

My, My Bad!!!

I was looking for tablet speakers that I can connect to my Galaxy tab recently, so I got this one from Logitech. While I was taking the speakers out from the box, I noticed they come with a subwoofer!...so, wait a minute, I just wanted small speakers, what the heck should this be for???

Then, it was too late that when I went to the store with the discount paper on my hand, I was looking at the same price with the wrong item! My, bad!!! So, now, I can't use this for my tablet. The speakers are to be connected to the subwoofer and the subwoofer will have to be connected to a PC.

Probably, it was so cunning that on the box it says it can be used with MP3 players. I can still use this somehow with my other PC but it has its own small speakers which are still both doing great. My HP Pavilion laptop doesn't need any speakers as well, because the built-in speakers are as loud as can be. I couldn't afford to just abuse my eardrums for these!!..lol. 
Well, right now, I don't have any plans to return it because I can still use it for some other purpose someday. The price wasn't too bad, but it is still worth keeping.
