Fixing Blog

Had the urge to do some tinkering here on my blog and I thought it take long. But it’s always the same problem, when I start – I can’t stop! Now it’s 2:20 and I have to get up early tomorrow, work it is.


Brute Force Attacks Is Kicking My Nerves

I’ve been working on my blog since last weekend. Brute Force Attacks also attempted to break-in in my admin area, thus my host blocked it or shut this part down to avoid damage. I was not aware of it then, that is why I was wondering when I tried to login last Saturday and could not. I only got 403 – forbidden access is denied. It was only yesterday that I was able to call my host (yes no 7/24) to tell them about my problem. The solution was simple: create .htpasswd file then modify .htaccess et voila.


Twenty Eleven WordPress Theme

Hello blogmates, have you tried using WordPress default theme TWENTY ELEVEN? Last night, I spent several hours tweaking here and there and having a hard time to find out how to use the functionality it provides. It’s been a decade since I have last created WP theme you know…so I was kind of groping in the dark :). Twenty Eleven is really great, I like it!!!

Blog Under Heavy Construction

Sorry for the dust but the blog owner which is me of course, has been sleeping for quite sometime. I am now wide awake and busy doing some site changes such as theme (in the making), database and etc. So stay tuned mga kapatid, I will be right back with lots of tsismis :).

Kauderwelsch Is Definitely Not Dead Nor Forgotten

Yes, maybe ito ay inamag lang or natabunan na ng alikabok. Pero ang site na ito ay hindi patay kundi medyo natulog lang. Ang Tita Poorshya niyo kasi ay medyo nadaganan ng sandamakmak na trabaho sa bahay at clinic at pakikipagsosyalan. Alam niyo, hindi ko akalaing very stressing pala ang ganitong buhay. Yon bang you have to play different roles sa madla. Pero don’t ya worry folks, I may look older now, pero okay pa rin ako. Naging malawak na ang aking kaalaman sa pagiging practical nurse (kuno), at para na rin akong doktor na inject ng inject. Hehehehe, sino ba ang mag-akalang ako ay mapunta sa medical field. Pero ewwww! Medyo ngumingiwi pa rin ang pis ko when I see infected wounds at kong anek-anek pang wounds diyan. Bagamat labag man sa aking kalooban, hala go pa rin ang Tita niyo dahil nakatali na siya dito. Ika nga resignation not possible.

So what’s new ba dito sa blogosphere? I am sure super daming gimmick dito ngayon na di ko alam. Or is everything the same pa rin va? Sige nga kuwentuhan niyo ang lola niyo! Saken or sa amin naman, well maraming bagay ang naganap mula noong huli kong update dito.

Like for example:

Ang anak kong panganay ay nag-asawa na noong April.

Si Lolo G. niyo ay naging Knight of Rizal naman last May.

At siyempers ako din…I mean, on that same day inducted din ako bilang isang Lady of Rizal.

May 16, one uforgettable day of my life evah. Why? Eh naging celebrities kami nang isang araw noh? Nagshooting sa amin ang ZDF (local tv channel) from morning til past midnight. The documentary film about us was aired last June.

Rampadora si Lady Poorshya, kaya join din ang byuti niya noong ginanap ang First General Assembly ng Ladies of Rizal Europe doon sa Bonn end of May. Take note: Ang nag-iisa gentleman diyan ay si Consul General Romeo L. Manalo ng Philippine Consulate General, Frankfurt.

Aray ko, sumasakit na ang likod ko sa kakasulat at edit ng mga piktyurs. Marami pa akong ikukwento sa inyo pero sa next update nalang ang iba. Ayaw ko kayong pagurin sa ito nalang muna sa ngayon. Okay? Just wanted to let you know that we are all doing fine here in our new home.

I miss blogging a lot, but my time was very limited few months ago kaya I was forced to take a short break. Now I’m back and I hope I can update often this time.

Indefinite Hiatus

It is clearly not the journey for everyone. People succeed in as many ways as there are people. Some can be completely fulfilled with destinations that are much closer to home and more comfortable. But if you long to keep going, then I hope you are able to follow my lead to the places I have gone. To within a whisper of your own personal perfection. To places that are sweeter because you worked so hard to arrive there. To places at the very edge of your dreams.

Dear friends, I am very sorry to tell you that I will be taking HIATUS for an INDEFINITE time. I will be so busy with lots of things. Lots of things have been happening since I have last written, hence my total lack of updating whingyness.

You surely noticed that I have changed my “THEME”. Well, the new design is suited to my new lifestyle. My role as stay-at-home mom will be ending on October 1. Magiging career woman na naman si Tita Poorshya niyo. Pero bago yan magsimula, maraming bagay pa kaming dapat ayusin at asikasuhin. Ang buhay naming magpamilya will totally change this time. Hubby and I will be working together. In a new place, new home and new surroundings, where we will meet lots of new people.

So KAUDERWELSCH is going on hiatus. There will be no new stories or events for a while, but this site will remain accessible to everyone. There is no timetable for a return date, but stay tuned.

Thanks everyone! Wish us luck on the new adventure of our life…

Watermark Image Protection

I Love Shoes

Watermark your images through using “WATERMARK PLUGIN” (applicable for self-hosted WordPress blogs only). I never thought I will need such a thing, not until I encountered the mutating Ellumbra who has stolen and manipulated my photos. Well anyway, his work does not impress me at all…and I think he also believes that he can provoke me through comparing me with a Nazi soldier. Hehehe, what a ninny.

I am sure marami na siyang nanakaw na pictures namin but it is not yet too late to protect my images with a watermark. Just like CathCath said: “It is easier to make the complain if you have that mark.” Kaya heto ako’t may natagpuang plugin for this purpose. To those who are interested, you may proceed to the site of Marekki and download the plugin. It works like a charm and user friendly. See sample image above.

If You Are An Eagle, Don't Hang With Chicken

Lelet a non-blogger, newly met friend (internet) of mine left this as comment on my other site. I thought of publishing this here on Lukaret because I find her message really encouraging. And I also would like to share this to some friends in real life na ‘medyo’ nagulat or puzzled sa aking pagbabago.

Hello Beng,
I’m Glad to met you here..the other side of you. parang abot kamay ko lang ang Germany thru reading your site though parang nasa Butuan din ako…hihihi…Though I don’t know you much but for sure buotan ka day thru what i read in this pages. What more can I say…ayu-ayo din ha!

May this encourage you:

If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, and stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times…that is not a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go.

Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of the same feather flock together.” If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around with chickens: Chickens Can’t Fly!

Take care always

Now let me relate a bit…

Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go.

There is truth in every word you have in here. I can relate dahil nadaanan ko ito. I grow and changed for the better and some friends are left behind dahil naging magkaiba na ang values namin sa buhay. To me values are those things that really matter to each of us … the ideas and beliefs we hold as special. Caring for others, for example, is a value; so is the freedom to express our opinions.

Speaking of “Freedom to express our opinions.” I would like to share some words of wisdom to some friends (again) who have trouble with accepting critic or opinion. I believe, that a constructive critic is made in order to help a person to become himself or herself into a better person, or, say, to become his or her work into a better one. And I know that criticism, however constructive, can be hard to take. Nonetheless, it’s imperative that you take it well, and even with grace and style. It’s about how you can improve on something, make some thing better. You must understand and accept this if you are to listen to what others have to say with an open mind and heart.

So here we go…
Honesty is a prerequisite to a friendship. There must be a willingness to speak the truth, and a willingness to hear the truth. Friends who do not care enough to confront may save themselves a little awkwardness in the present but will end up losing their friendships in the future.

And as the saying goes…
Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of the same feather flock together.”

Individuals of like character, taste, or background (tend to stay together). Or People of the same (usually, unscrupulous) character associate with one another, as do birds of the same species. The birds will resort unto their like, so will truth return unto them that practise in her.

I love this part very much!
If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around with chickens. Chickens Can’t Fly!
Hehehe, ganun ba yon? Though, chicken can fly din di ba? Hindi nga lang ganun kataas sa lipad ng agila.

This part actually belongs to the quote Lelet left on my comment box, hindi niya lang ito idinagdag. I found it somewhere else.
Over the years my phone book has changed because I changed for the better. At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
