2 SMRT 4 U

Everyone's hearing about online predators and cyberbullies.. and in the U.S. it is pretty much rampant. I found this site online that gives away advocacy rings to help you remember and be aware of seedy people online.

They offer lots of tips... to help keep yourself safe online. I know it affects most of the US residents only but it helps to at least be aware of what's happening and be more careful everyday. You can also listen and watch to two different testimonies of what they experienced in real life.

I signed up for the advocacy ring they are giving away last month.... and they said it takes 2-3 months to get it because it's overseas.


I'm not a Pinoy Big Brother fan... but I'm beginning to enjoy their tasks and some punishments. Nyahaha. The four(housmates) being punished this week was Nel, Bruce, Saicy, and Bea for doing the "Number 1*" at the garden. They were supposed to balance the "arinola" at their head for the whole day(While eating, urinating.. etc.) then circle the garden twice, and then dance without letting the arinolas fall. Basta, it was sooo funny. Too bad, it's usually aired late at night.

But, I like the Season 2 housemates better compared to the first(di ko kasi napanood ang first). I usually don't care about PBB... but their batch this season was good.. different personalities... meron syempre bad sides... pero... that's part. I like it because they help each other and they have a good bond already. Most of them (the ones left in the house) are good sports naman so far.

Links to their Funny Task: Madam Chaka/Sudoku task,
Number 1* - Urinating
Number 2* - Poo. Hehe.

Cyber bullying? Buti naman, dito sa Pinas wala pang cases na ganyan (or baka meron na at di ko lang alam?). Oh, those tips are great, everyone who use the internet should read that article.

Naawa ako sa mga nabibiktima sa mga cyberbullies na 'yan. :-(

I don't watch PBB on ABS-CBN anymore but I am still updated with some of their flicks on S23.

I'll screen over to the communities I would join. Bata pa kasi ako, e.

Have a nice day!

Panahon pa yata ng ARPANET (ninuno ng internet) e may mga cyberbullies and predators na talaga.

Lagi kong pinapaalalahanan ang mga tao na maging maingat sa paglalagay ng mga pribadong impormasyon katulad ng mga numero, address, totoong pangalan, at "who is your crush?" Dahil sooobrang laki ng cyberspace at hindi natin malalaman kung sino ang mantitrip sa'tin. Ibayong ingat lang talaga.

'Yung sa MyBlogLog thingy, hindi ko masyadong na-gets. Pero ang lahat-lahat ng mga bumibisita sa blog ko ay idinadagdag ko sa friends list. Samantalang ang mga links sa blog ko ay sinalihan ko sa kanilang MyBlogLog community.

I will check that advocacy thingy. I am not a fan of big brother at all. I loathe it since I think it is just a waste of time watching it. I prefer watching shows that really showcase talent.

Waw! Those tips were helpful.. Yeap, there are so many cyberbullies online..

I miss you, Tina! =)
