We were already on our way to the province last week when my friends texted me that I won in Yugatech Merry Tweetmas Contest. Upon getting a decent internet connection there I visited Yuga’s blog and confirmed that I really won (on the blog category)! Nice Christmas gift 🙂 so I tweeted it here.
Today the Globe Tattoo package has arrived. I was out buying some stuff in the neighborhood store so Raven received it in my behalf.
Thanks to Yugatech and Globe Telecom for the wonderful Christmas gift!
Thanks also to Jeff for the text update and Congrats to Jyethrox and all the other winners of the merry tweetmas contest.

I got another Google Adsense check recently but I have not created a blog post about it immediately due to some other pressing matters (I just tweeted about it). And I since I mentioned in my earlier blogging post that:
Other Pinoy bloggers who helped me in one way or another deserve some link love posts too, but alas, that’s worth another post or two in the future.
Here is my 2000 and latethank you notes to some bloggers who helped me and menardconnect.com when we were just starting.
My appreciation and gratitude to:
Tonyo of Tonyocruz.com. Tonyo is very helpful in providing insights on blogging, social media and how to interact with the community. His tech, social issues and politics blog is a great resource for some of the articles here
Bro.Utoy of Bro. Utoy Saves. Bro. Utoy’s posts make me laugh, smile and it also keeps the (blogging) discouragement at bay. (note: I believe Bro. Utoy is now on his self-imposed blogging break, but I know he will be back in the scene)
Jehzlau of Jehzlau’s Concepts. Jehzlau is very approachable and is very helpful to bloggers both old and new.
Macky and Jercyl of TrendLabs Tech Marketing Team. The two wonderful ladies helped me write my first ever article for an IT magazine, and that article was really an inspiration for this blog. On the early stages of my blog, they were always there when I have simple questions on blogging, social media and the blogosphere.
I would like to thank a lot of other people (especially from my high school batch, from my TrendLabs Tech Marketing Team and the pinoy blogging community) for the help they have given me and my blog but again that will be worthy of another post in the future. I smell another Google Adsense check coming (as well as another check from one of my favorite blogging networks) so I know that thank you post will be coming soon.
I met Yugatech in the 2nd session of TrendLabs BlogCon. I was really inspired by his success in blogging and as a sign of my gratitude to him for that wonderful Blogcon session, I am giving some link love and shout-out post for his holiday contest.
Yuga is really big time! He is giving tons of prizes for his The Yugatech Great Gadget Giveaway
Round 1 is twitter time folks and the mechanics goes like this:
#1. PetVille is a Virtual Pet game in Facebook (and Myspace too). This is a fun game and it has a cute and catchy soundtrack especially the one in the intro.
At first, you will be asked to customized how your pet will look and then you can groom and play with your pet. Some important games concepts in Petville includes the love points, which is very much similar to XP (experience points) and of course Petville coins.
#2. Ok lets go into the PetVille tips: How do you get coins and love points? In your own PetVille room you can feed your pet using the food bowl:
And clean your pet (by rubbing the soap)
and Pick up trash in your room.
#3. Next PetVille Tip is to get many Neighbors and send them free PetVille gifts
PetVille is a social game and neighbors are important in getting more coins and love points and therefore your pet will level up faster. When you start the game there is automatically 1 neighbor for the Petville (her name is Nosie). On the 1st visit to neighbor there will be short demo. But if you did not pay attention, its ok just proceed to the next tip
#4. Next PetVille Tip on getting more coins and love points: When you get to a neighbor’s house the first thing to do is play with the neighbor. You need to pick if you want to high five, gossip, tickle, dance, kiss or handshake the other pet.
My favorite is of course to Dance since they seem to do a cute dance like the Wonder Girls: Nobody Nobody But You 😀
Then you can clean and bathe the neighbor’s pet
And then you can clean the neighbor’s house for unwanted thrash
After cleaning there will be an indicator on how many trash are left
Take note that trash is not just on the ground, some are up there somewhere
Its advisable to clean all trash so that you will have a Good Housekeeping Bonus, for more extra coins and love points
#5. And the next on my Petville Cheatsand Tips list: The fastest way to earn love points is to buys furniture and stuffs in the store.
#6. And lastly my final Petville tip: Do not cheat! Why? Similar to what I advised on my Fishville Cheats, Cafe World Cheats, Mafia Wars Cheats, Farm Town Cheats and Mybrute Cheats posts: Cheaters never win! There will be other blog posts out there encouraging you to use some cheat tools and cheat engines but I recommend that you DO NOT run executable programs unless you know 100% what these tools will do to your PC or Mac (on the file, system and registry level via reverse engineering, system monitoring, etc.) There are a lot of malware, spyware, keyloggers, and Trojan downloaders out there that are disguised as cheat engines and cheat tools so better be not the next victim OK?
Hope you like my Facebook Petville Cheats and Tips post. I will be posting some other Petville tips here in my blog soon to so don’t forget to subscribe to my blog.
It’s really Christmas time in the Café World. Upon login you will be greeted by a splash welcome screen
Also, Zynga released a new recipe in Facebook Café World. One remarkable thing I liked about this dish is the high payoff: 24 coins per serving, the highest in the game as of writing. Yes, the Sweet Seasonal Ham cooks in 12 hours, lets you earn 24 coins per serving. The downside is that 1 cooking package contains 100 servings only.
Since I mentioned in my lastCafé World Cheats post that I’d like to redecorate my café, I gave into the temptation and I am giving you a glimpse of my Café: ala winter and holiday theme
Main attraction is the Santa Claus and the Snowman at the center of the café.
Zynga released a new special fish in Fishville. I think its really quite a special fish and may enable fast experience points so this is worthy to be mentioned in my Fishville Cheats article. The new fish in town is called the Clown Triggerfish and its gives 23 XP when you buy it, and gives 92 XP when you sell it at Level 1.
It grows in 3 hours so its comparable to the Blue Green Chromis, but definitely worth more experience points. The catch is that you will need 1 Fishville Sand Dollars each to buy it 🙂
Facebook Sand Dollars is for sale at the Fishville Best Value Store. You can reach the Fishville Best Value Store by clicking the Get More Coins Tab.
