An Amusing Turn of Stats Event

I know this is nothing to be completely happy about – it just means that my blog – which has usually been flying under the radar, must have caught the eyes of a bunch of spambots.

Since I have no new comments in my notifications, I guess I should be thankful that the Spam filter is working as it should be.

But still, it’s funny, and I got a good chuckle out of it. Look at how my blog has performed for the past few days — then suddenly, BOOM!

This reminded me of that post Jim Borden made on his blog,  The Day My WordPress Stats Went Wild. It’s amusing to see such performance out of our blog, eh? Outstanding!

Anyway, my suspicions were mostly confirmed when I saw where most of the views were from. Hahaha…

Well, anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you are having a good day today. Stay safe!

If you like this blog, and the things I post here, I highly recommend that you follow me here. If my current post has not convinced you yet that it is a good idea to follow me, please take a look at my past content and decided then.

See you around, and have a nice day!

Fiddling Around With Photography

With my wife diving into her vlog production more recently because we have more free time, I have rekindled my love for photography.

Armed with my Fujifilm Superzoom, which I had with me since 2014 (yeah, it’s old), and my iPhone, I have been taking photos whenever I can.

I Wish Life Has an Undo Button

I accidentally broke my mother-in-law’s glass jar this morning when I was washing the dishes…

I’m sweating bullets and in a state of despair.

The glass jar was used to hold beef “sinigang” (sour stew). It was very greasy, and I was having a hard time cleaning it. Then I remembered warm water can remove the grease. I boiled water and poured it in the the jar.

As soon as I poured water and it hit the jar, I heard a click sound.

My heart stopped.

The jar broke from a small crack. The entire bottom part separated from the jar.

The water must have been too hot, or the jar was still cool from being washed in morning tap water…

Either way, I’m screwed.

The wife is particularly upset with me for my screw-up.

A similar kind of jar, but with a different design from the one I broke…

The jar was something my mother-in-law acquired when she was working in Italy, so replacing it would be hard. She has long retired from working there as an overseas worker, and this was among the things that she has brought with her.

The jar is also something that my wife is fond of, and she likes the design. I’m going to get a boat-load of crap when this hits the fan.

I haven’t been able to talk to my mother-in-law yet, but I am scared to tell her of the unfortunate news… But, I have to. It is at least my duty for the screw-up I did.

In any case, I really do wish there is some kind of “undo” button to rewind life to make us fix the mistakes that we have made in life. Either big or small ones.

I hope you have a nice day.
