Parental Control and Responsible Surfing

Internet is such a huge world to explore but this could not be really safe especially for our kids. This is the reason why i am advising everyone to be more responsible on how they search the web or how they use their personal computers. Pornography sites are just one click away and your kids might accidentally land on their pages before your knew it. I am really impressed with GMA Network's newest online campaign entitled "Think Before You Click" that aims to give awareness to everyone that every click we made on the web has a great impact to someone. Whether it is a form or cyber bullying or the free access to thousands of porn sites, each of these might affect the internet user mentally , emotionally and spiritually.
But of course we cannot monitor our kids everyday and to check them every now and then. Whether they are not intending to visit a certain brazzer site or a website dedicated to provide some brazzer review or any related porn xchange sites.We have to be very responsible about this or else it's too late for us to erase such images from their curious and innocent minds.
I guess the best way to protect them from accessing adult sites or any websites that may affect the way they think, is to activate or install a parental control software on your PC. The Parental Control feature in your antivirus product lets you surf the Web, blocking access to Web pages with violent, racist or similarly inappropriate content.
This is very ideal if your kids own a computer or if you let them use your laptop for awhile. This will give them some sort of restriction to access some offensive sites. Well I am nothing against watching porn, i know the fact that most people, especially men, used to visit such sites for entertainment purposes but it's just that we have to do it in private and we should be very responsible with our actions.

We need Green Crepe paper, Empty Aluminum foil cylinder card board, plastic cap, glue gun, card board.

Cover the Aluminum foil card board with green crepe paper.


Glue gun it on a plastic cap (should be wide enough to support our Christmas tree.

Glue it around the mid-upper part of the Cylinder.

Cut another piece of card board and do the same process as the first one. (Make the strips longer than the first one.

Now glue it about 2 1/2 to 3 inches away from the first one

Then make another one longer than the second one and glue it on the lower portion of the tree.

For the tip, cut a circle and make a cone out of it. Cut the lower portion into strips.


You should end up something like this.

Now draw Three kinds of leaves on the crepe. They should be Small, medium and large in size. Fold the crepe paper many times to produce many leaves in one cut.


Now start pasting the leaves on each strips. The Small leaves should go with the small strips. Same thing goes with the medium and large leaves.

A Miniature Christmas Tree

Counter Strike and Paintball

Are you guys familiar with "Counter Strike"? It is actually a tactical first person shooter video game and i was really addicted into it. I remember during my high school days, me and my friends used to visit an Internet cafe every after school and play CS (shortened term for Counter Strike) for about 3 - 4 hours. Well i know that's not really advisable especially for students during that age and that is something I am not really proud of hehe.

Anyway, the game has evolved rapidly and mainly because of being so in demand here and abroad. Here, you can join either the terrorist team, the counter-terrorist team, or become a spectator. Each team attempts to complete their mission objective and/or eliminate the opposing team. The game was intelligently made because it will measure or test how well you strategize your game. But if you're tired with video games, you can actually try playing paintball. It is pretty in demand today and just like Counter Strike, you also have the same objective and that is, to eliminate the opposing team. It is more like you're playing the game in real life but it's just that, instead of real bullets , you will be using paintball guns. Obviously, as what the term connotes, paintball guns throw paintballs which will also serve as your bullets. Excitingly, you will be wearing army uniforms in this game as well. Of course, even though they were just paintballs, you are still required to wear safety gears. You need to have a goggle or a mask to protect your head from any possible injury. A mask usually completely covers the eyes, mouth, ears and nostrils of a person. Of course, if you're going to purchase one, make sure you buy the quality one. JT Paintball mask or the JT Spectra paintball mask is actually one of the most ideal equipment to use as it provides extreme quality and durability. As for the clothing, of course, it should be tough and durable as well. Clothing worn for tournament paintballing is constrained by tournament rules, which prohibit thick padded materials likely to adversely affect the chance of paintballs breaking on the target. Aside from guns, there are also paint grenades (which is not allowed in real paintball tournaments), smoke grenades and slingshots.

Comparing Counter Strike to Paint ball , i would rather go to Paintball since you will be playing the game in actual and it is more thrilling and exciting since you will be opposing against real players too.

My Disappointment and my Future Plans

Yay! Finally, i was able to visit this blog again. Sorry guys for being so inactive lately. You do not have any idea how guilty i am right now. My job is killing most of my blogging time and I can hardly find time to blog hop as well. This is very disappointing in my part despite of the back that i should be thankful because i finally have a new job. However, as a consequence, me and my little brother do not have much time to do some art crafts. How I wish i can have more time to spend with my little brother but my schedule is simply killing me.
As you all know, we already have a new blog dedicated for our crafts but until now, it is till not updated sobs.... Anyway, i have to catch things up and I have to manage my time well. As a matter of fact, Milzon and I were planning to visit Manila Ocean Park this month and I promised to take him to StarCity as well.
Manila Ocean Park is an oceanarium located at the Rizal Park behind the Quirino Grandstand. The oceanarium is divided in sections specifically designed to showcase the marine life seldom seen at close range. It comes with diving and snorkeling services that allows you to explore the water without the need to travel to different islands. Very interesting indeed and me and my brother is so excited to hit this place. I will definitely bring the camera with me and will buzz about our trip for sure.
We are also planning to attend a paintball event this coming September. It will be organized by our city government. Though we will not play the actual game, we will still witness the event live. I am not really sure if each participants is required to have their own paintball gun and own uniform or it will be provided by the organizers. Actually I saw a very cool tippmann paintball gun online yesterday and I think it is very ideal to have it in this game. How I wish we could join this event.
This Paintball event is being held to our place once a year so it's pretty exciting to witness such a rare event here in our area. It is pretty in demand you know. I saw some events in Makati as well and almost everyone is into it nowadays. Okay, now I am so eager to try it.. sigh..

Dragon Origami

I really don't know where to start, but in case you find these photos quite complicated, you can watch the video at the end of this post. The video is not mine, i grabbed it online and this is where i derived my craft today. I will be making a Dragon Origami.
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.

I really don't know how to explain this on details but as i said, you can check the video below.


Grab yourself a square sheet of paper, a clean table, and follow these simple step-by-step instructions.










































Tadah! Our Dragon origami! Hope you had fun!
