I Am Back With An Award To Share

Posted on March 27, 2008 by Hye

Girl Flying KissI am back from outer space!!! Just kidding. I know you've missed me and I missed you all too :D I know most of our avid readers are looking forward for each post here in Space of Reality. Sorry for not posting articles in a daily basis. Honestly I am mentally blanked right now to choose a topic to talk about, so instead I come up with a post to share an award to our readers. I have been choosing a topic on my list for hours now but I can't choose one. Maybe because I am a bit hooked up on my other blog. I am in the process of bringing back its Pagerank because Google slapped it back to PR0, just like this blog too :( That made me a little frustrated so I was very busy figuring out how that happened. Until now, I haven't figured out yet.

Back to the topic... Space of Reality just received a cool award coming from a very great friend named Bluedreamer. This blog was recently awarded as the Top 1 Hottest Blog of the month.

Five Inspirational Quotes To Ponder

Posted on March 24, 2008 by Hye

Inspirational QuotesIt's been about three days since my last post here in Space of Reality. To our avid readers and visitors, sorry for my long absence. I got myself so busy with some personal stuffs for the past days, thus I missed a lot of posts to share. I even missed visiting my favorite blogs. Again, sorry guys. I will try my best to settle everything as soon as possible and will post one article each day, as it is supposed to be.

I think it's not yet too late to post an article today. Since it's a beautiful Monday, I want to share five inspirational quotes to get us motivated not only this week, but from this day on. Feel free to leave your opinions and insights by leaving your comment on this article. Some thoughts to ponder:

1. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. It has something to do with letting go and forgiveness. If you won't forgive and let go the bad pasts that keeps on taunting you, your present and future will always be affected :D

2. What other people think of you is none of your business. Do you often please other people? Do you get affected by what other people think about you? You should not be. What other people think about you is their opinion. As long as you are doing what you think is right and not affecting other peoples' lives in a bad way, then you should mind your own business. Be the person of what you are, not the person of what they think or expect.

3. Time heals almost everything in time. Do you agree? I do.

4. No one is in charge of your happiness except you. This is absolutely true. No one knows yourself more the way you do. With that, if you want to be happy, start it with your own.

5. Don't compare your life to others, you have no idea what their journey is all about. I think everyone of us should think this way. Stop thinking about "I wish" or even "What if", instead face life.. and be happy with your own self. You have your own life. Your own ups and downs :D

I hope you were motivated by these quotes. Now, it's time to share your opinions :D

Is My Friend A Real Friend?

Posted on March 21, 2008 by Hye

Friendship QuoteFriendship Quote: Don't count your friends on a sunny day, when the sky is blue and smiles come so easily. Instead, wait for a storm, when the day grows cold and dark, and laughter is not heard in your heavy heart. Then, when a friend stands beside you, and lifts your spirits to the sky, you know that they deserve the name friend.

Do you think the quote above is true? Do you agree? How can you exactly know if a friend is a real friend? Can we say that a friend is genuine when she's not around whenever you need her?

Let's admit, we have a lot of friends - from casual friends, acquaintances, best friends, close friends, or true friends. But we must know that a real friend should be there whenever you feel down. Real friends make us brave when we are afraid , make us strong when are are weak, but most of all, they teach us to hold on when tears keep on falling.

If you have a friend who is nowhere to find whenever you need her, maybe it's time to think twice and ask your self "Is My Friend A Real Friend?" :D

Is Success Can Be Measured By Money?

Posted on March 18, 2008 by Hye

Science of Getting RichI saw a book titled "The Science of Getting Rich" yesterday while in a coffee shop with my friends. I thought it was a great read so I grabbed and started reading it from the first page. I don't mind my company because they are busy talking with some stuffs.

Anyway back to the book, the first page didn't go so well - I mean I disagree with the author - so I started skimming each page rather than reading and understanding each word. I did not read the book completely because I was disappointed, just scanned it. I had an e-book titled the same with the different author and I loved more my e-book rather than the book in the coffee shop.

So, why did I not like the book? It's because the author's main focus is about money. He seems to tell his readers that success can only be measured by money. This is what I disagreed with. I disagree that success can only be measured by money. In my opinion, success is not only what you have achieved, it also include who you influenced, what you have learned, and how happy you are with it. Success is not only about money.

Okay, as I've mentioned before, money is a necessity in today's world. It’s great to have a lot of money. You can almost do anything with money. Money can make you powerful. But it doesn't mean you have to be very rich with money before you can be known as successful. There are a lot of people who aren't rich in money but they are rich in knowledge, love, happiness, family, and friendship. I believe they are also successful.

Success is not only about how much money you have. Okay, you are rich... but isn't it worthless when you are not happy and no one truly loves you?

Get Inspired: The Donkey In The Well

Posted on March 14, 2008 by Hye

DonkeyHere's another inspirational story to ponder. Happy reading and get inspired ;D

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided since the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. So the farmer invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well.

All the other farm animals were very upset about this, because the donkey was their friend. But they discovered there was nothing they could do to help him. At first, when the donkey realized what was happening, he cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off, and take a step up on the dirt as it piled up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well, and trotted off!

The Moral of the story: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. But each trouble can be a stepping stone. What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not giving up! Shake it off, and take a step up!

Do You Shop At Home?

Posted on by Hye

Nowadays, a lot of people, especially busy and lazy people, choose online shopping rather than going to a mall. Shopping inside a mall is mostly tiresome because you have to walk around, check each stall looking for stuffs you want to buy. It is also irritating especially if you can’t find the exact stuff you are looking for. Not to mention the traffic jam and pollution you might encounter while going to the mall. With online shopping, you can buy almost everything just by clicking your mouse while sitting comfortably in front of your computer. No saleslady following you around and definitely, no sweat, no traffic, and no pollution.

If you are the type of person who prefers online shopping, then one website you should visit is called ShopWiki.com. It is the largest comparison shopping search engine where consumers can find specific products online with ease and comfort. They almost have everything from arts and crafts, automotive, accessories, books, movies, music, clothing, collectibles, electronics, computers, software, food, health, beauty, home, garden, jewelry, office supplies and more selection. Also, they provided reviews on both stores and products to help you make a decision in which best product to buy and where should you buy. Check out their website to avail products at low prices and great discounts.

Is Being Courageous Means Being Fearless

Posted on March 13, 2008 by Hye

FearlessI often hear a lot of people saying “He is so brave and fearless!” Every time I hear this statement, I disagree. Why? It’s because I simply disagree ;D

Does being courageous imply being fearless? What does being courageous exactly mean?

First, let's define what the words fear and courage mean.

Fear is the acceptance of potential danger and the motivation to take action for protection. It sets you in action for facing danger or fleeing from it. Meanwhile, courage is the ability to persist with your objectives and take action even in the face of fear. Courage is not the absence of fear. Being courageous forces you to pursue your objectives despite fear. Fear helps you protect yourself from danger, whereas courage helps you take action despite being fearful. Do not be afraid to be afraid. Fear is necessary. However do not let fear stop you. Be courageous and take action. Fear and courage go hand in hand. Fear is necessary for survival, whereas courage is required to succeed.
Now, after reading the excerpt above, you also disagree with the statement “He is so brave and fearless!

Is It Really Your Choice?

Posted on March 12, 2008 by Hye

Life is DecisionRemember my post about Your life is your decision? My post today is something related to that post, but not exactly. In case you haven't read the said post yet, I recommend reading it first before jumping to this post.

Anyway, I am posting a similar topic just to remind everyone about my opinion about having a choice and without a choice. Most people - you may disagree with me - often make the word choice as their excuse.

For example, if you ask a group of people "Why do you work in a call center?", some - or maybe, most - of them will simply answer back "...because I don't have a choice!!!"

Is it really because he doesn't have a choice or is it because it was his choice?

In my opinion, as I've mentioned on my post about "your life is your decision", a person's life is the product of his decision. If you work in a call center or somewhere else, it is because you choose it. It is also your choice to stay in that job or to go for another job. It's not that you weren't given the choice. It is because you did not open yourself to another choice. An option is a two-way range. In my opinion, there is always a second choice - it is up to you. It's your choice.

Jack Of All Trades, Master To None

Posted on March 11, 2008 by Hye

Jack Of All Trades, Master To NoneAre you familiar with this idiomatic expression "Jack Of All Trades, Master To None"? Again, as usual, let me ask you if you agree or disagree. If so, mind to share us why?

Truth is, I disagree with the old saying "Jack of all trades, master to none". Why can't we be "Jack of all Trades" and master of all that we have done? In my opinion, knowing and being passionate about a broad array of subjects is an advantage. For me, being a Jack of all trades doesn't mean you are being greedy. It is like being flexible. Isn't it better if you know how to speak a lot of languages rather than knowing only how to speak your own native language?

Being a Jack of all trades means you are capable of anything with no limit. It should be considered both a strength and advantage. It isn’t only about knowing everything, but it is also about being multifaceted and truly knowing a lot in various fields of study.

For me, the old idiom above should be changed to "Jack of all trades, master of none, but better than a master of one" ;D

Teens Resort To Sex For Money?

Posted on by Hye

Teen ProstitutionIt's been two days since my last post. I've been busy for some personal stuff. To our avid readers, I apologize for not giving you reality articles for the past two days. As well, thanks to those who dropped their comments informing me I received awards and tags. I really appreciate them a lot. I will post and share these as soon as possible. For now, I want to share my opinion about life truth - which is on the title of this post.

Will you please re-read the title of this article? Do you agree? Why not? Does this incident happening in your country, too?

Honestly, this situation occurs in my country. There is no denying. I read it in newspapers. I watched it in the local - sometimes international - news. I heard it from a friend. How many times have I read, watched, and heard about a parent engaging his daughter for prostitution? How about a teenager engaging in prostitution just to pay her college tuition, or worst, just to have some money to buy drugs or alcohol?

A lot of times, indeed.

Why? It is because of poverty? Lack of proper parental guidance? Peer pressure? Lack of government support to the poor? Or is it the only option to take?

I know money is necessity. We need money to survive. But does it mean, because you have no money, your only choice is to employ in prostitution?

Who is accountable for this - the parent, the teenager herself, the peer, or the government?

As usual, reality bites... and these are my simple thoughts ;(

My Motto In Life: First Things First

Posted on March 5, 2008 by Hye

PriorityFirst things first.

What does this statement mean? I bet some of you reading this post may not exactly know... some may heard this line for the very first time... or maybe you've heard it already but never gave any second thought at all.

If you've heard this line before and know what it means, then you are a great person. I am sure.

Honestly, the first time I heard the phrase First things first in a book, I did not give a second thought on it. It was another phrase that has no meaning for me... but again, I learned that this phrase has a meaning.

Actually, first things first is one of my mottos in life. First things first means you should know your priorities and work for it one at a time. When you try to do things all at once, there is a big possibility that you will not finish all your tasks... and possibly most of your work will lack quality. First things first makes me stay focused with my priorities. This motto helps
manage my time wisely. When I have a lot of things to do, I just think about this motto and I can make everything settled... at the right time.

Now, do you know your priorities? How do you work it out - one at a time or all at once?

A Website For Sectional Garages

Posted on by Hye

I was browsing online and checking several websites to find something interesting when I came to an attention-grabbing site. The website is called Lidget Concrete Garages. This website mainly offers sectional garage in different designs and layout. Hon and I plan to buy a house in the future and having a garage is a must. That’s why I find this website helpful… at least I now know a place where to look at in case we need to buy or construct a garage. In case you are also looking for different garage designs for your homes, then I am sure you will find this website useful too.

Lidget Concrete Garages offer different workshops, garages, and shed like Pent, Apex, Georgian, Windsor, and more. So far, The Pent is the most popular and best-selling among their others collections. Along with the garages they offer, I was hooked with the design and elegance of The Georgian garage and if time comes that we will construct our garage, a Georgian garage is definitely a great choice for me. The Georgian garage is refined in looks with its white finish making it so elegant in any angle. If you are presently looking for a place to buy concrete designs for your garage, then this website is the right place to visit.

Can You Keep A Secret?

Posted on by Hye

SecretsFor more than four months of blogging, I never shared my opinion about secrets. While sleepily browsing some websites online, a sudden thought about "secrets" popped inside my mind... so I considered posting a related article before I'll have my night sleep - or should I say dawn sleep (Because it is already past 12'oclock in the morning. The neighborhood is so quite thus I am a little motivated of writing another article.) So, let's talk about secrets.

Shhhh... Can you keep a secret? Is your answer a typical yes or no?

Some may agree with me that it is okay to keep secrets. Secrets can be fun. They can also test your level of trust to your friends or family. During my teenage years, my high school friends and I love making secrets such as who are our crushes and some other personal secrets. Nowadays, I admit I still keep secrets... when you'll ask me how old I am, I will simply reply "Secret." I know that most of us have secrets - some are kept personally while others are kept with our trustees.

But do you know that there are secrets which can also hurt people? There are secrets that should be kept untold while there are some which should be revealed. In short, there is a good and a bad secret. A good secret won't hurt you or anyone or anything else while a bad secret might hurt you, or someone or something else. It might make you, your brother, your sister, or a friend feel sad, scared, uncomfortable, or angry. It might be something that you know is wrong, and you think someone will get in trouble if you break it.

So, knowing there are bad and good secrets… do you know when you should keep a secret or reveal them. Thanks for sharing ;D

Get Insured For Your Own Good

Posted on March 4, 2008 by Hye

InsuranceIn today's time, applying for an insurance is recommended either for personal, medical or business purpose. A medical or business insurance is a protection and assurance for your life and property. If you are working in a private or public company, you are protected with medical and accident insurances. However, in some cases, it is still necessary that applying for another private insurance is a good choice. At least you are assured that you can enjoy the full assurance you should get.

If you own an automobile, car insurance is a great decision you should do as this will protect your car against accidents or theft. Having a car insurance doesn’t mean you can be lax with your property. Life is unexpected. Bad things may happen especially when we never predicted it. Isn’t it great when something bad happened yet you can still relax because your car was insured? A home insurance is also necessary especially if you value your own house so much. I don't have my own house yet, but I am planning to buy one once I already save enough money. And with buying a new house, I see to it that I have it insured too to protect my property during calamities.

The History of Computer Data Backup

Posted on by Hye

Majority of us uses a computer in a daily basis - from school projects, office workloads, business accounting, payroll, and more. Using a computer can make the work faster and easier. There is no doubt most people, including me, claim that a computer is a necessity.

When you use a computer for your daily tasks or office workload, data backup is necessary. No one can determine when a computer is hacked by a virus or when the data is corrupted. In cases such as data corruption, data lose, or virus infection, it is great if you have several backup of your critical files saved on a CD, DVD, USB flash drive, or external hard drive.

Do you know the history of backup? During the ancient time, our ancestors saved their important data through paper, stones, and woods. But as year pass by, they begun to discover about computers and later on introduced the first method of computer data backup which is through the use of magnetic tapes and punch cards. Later on, they began to use floppy disks in different sizes.

Today, most of the computers no longer use floppy drives or magnetic tapes. Most computers already came with CD and DVD burners wherein anyone can burn their large files instantly on a CD or DVD. Nowadays, some other method of data backup include external or secondary hard drives, flash drives or via network. For a detailed history of computer data backup, visit BackupHistory.com

Between Renting Or Owning A Home

Posted on March 3, 2008 by Hye

HouseOwning a house is not always the best financial choice especially if you plan to stay in an area for not longer than a year or two. In this case, renting a home, apartment, or condominium is still a better choice. But if you plan to stay in a place for a long time or for good, in my opinion, owning a house is a great deal as this choice can offer both personal and financial benefits.

In the event you don't have enough money to buy a new house, then a rent to own house is an alternative. All you have to do is to save enough money for a down payment. Rent-to-own option is the easiest and most affordable way to secure your dream home without taking on debt.

When you own a home, you build equity in your home every time you make a monthly mortgage payment and later, it can be converted back to cash by refinancing or selling the property. You also benefit from the tax benefits of mortgage interest and property tax deductions. Aside from these financial benefits, there are other beneficial effects of home ownership. When you settle down in one area that suits you and your family, you become part of a community which can never happen when renting. Owning a house promises stability and security which can never be enjoyed when renting because you can never be sure when the mortgage increase.

When you own your home, you can also enjoy a level of independence and freedom not possible when a landlord is in control of your living space. That means you can decide whether to have pets, change the decor or design of your home, or plant a garden. Still renting? Why not consider owning a home instead of renting if you plan to stay in a place for a long time?

Who Are Happier - Singletons Or Married?

Posted on March 2, 2008 by Hye

Broken HeartedToday's post is a little related to our topic yesterday about Why Some People Choose To Be Single? as inspired by Keitaro. Yesterday, Keitaro asked these questions "Why some people, who are in a romantic relationship, never managed to become REALLY happy? And why most single people are a lot happier than them?" and I promised to discuss a topic related to his queries today.

Why some people who are in relationship never managed to become really happy? I am not sure about their reasons, honestly.

I am in a relationship right now, but I can say I am happy despite all the little fights, arguments, and misunderstanding. Those mentioned are part of each relationship and it's up to the couple on how they deal with these trials and tests. If their "connection" is too weak, then this can cause unhappiness to either or both parties - sometimes causing fight or worst breakup. In my opinion, there are some people who are into relationship and are unhappy because they have high expectations on their relationship. They expected their partner would be someone who he/she is not or sometimes, it turned out that their partner is someone who they thought would be. Some even opt for a perfect relationship.. and when things get worse, they become unhappy. I think these are some of the reasons why some people in a relationship never managed to be happy.

Why most single people are a lot happier than them? Again, I don't know the real reason... but in my opinion and baseD on my observation, some single people are happier being single because they enjoy the privacy and independence, which they can never have when they are in a relationship. Just a thought ;D

Having a nice and comfortable bed to sleep is one of the most important things to consider for you to have a great sleep at night. This is one reason we recently decided to buy a new bed - to change our old uncomfortable one. I was a little too lazy going to the mall for some window shopping so instead I decided to check different bed collections online... and one website I found useful for my search is Time4sleep.co.uk. Too bad I can't order with them because their services are only available in the UK area. This post may be a great help to those residing in the UK area wanting to buy their own beds and mattresses online.

Time4Sleep almost have everything - from leader beds, faux leather beds, divan beds, wooden beds, French-style beds, antique-style beds, metal beds, upholstered beds, and more. Aside from bed collections, they also have mattresses, headboards, foam pillows, and bedroom furniture. Their prices range for as low as £149 and as high as £800 depending on your preferred design, size, and color. If you are concerned about their warranty, all of their products came with a 12 month warranty against defective design, workmanship, or faulty materials. So, the next time you want to buy a new bed or mattress, visit Time4Sleep.

Posted on by Hye

FiveOkay, I got this tag from a very creative friend Bluedreamer and he required me to to choose the top five hottest blog in the blogosphere (I just added the words "of the month"). Here's the rules:

+start copy here+
1. Simply choose five blogs you want to be included in your "top five list".
2. Give a short line or explanation why you put them on your list. One explanation for each of every blog.
3. Now tag as many blogs as you want.You can also tag those blogs you've listed in your TOP FIVE. You can also put your own blog in your list if you want
4. [for those who've been tagged] you can also vote for a blog that was been nominated already
(besides,this is what this meme is intended for, to know how many bloggers will nominate your blog)
5. Submit your TOP FIVE HOTTEST BLOG ENTRY here . Submitted blogs will be the only one to be included in the tally.
6. Remember: Submissions of entries starts from MARCH 1 2008 to MARCH 25,2008
and top five hottest blog winners will be announced in MARCH 29,2008
7. Enjoy listing your top five!!!
+end copy here+

Here are my top five favorite blogs:
1. Space of Reality. This may sound selfish but I am just being honest. Space of Reality is my favorite blog because this is where I share my opinions, thoughts, and passion. So, no questions asked... this is definitely my favorite blog.
2. Bluedreamer's Paradise. This is not a biased decision (not because he is a friend). Honestly, this blog is also one of my favorite. I love those top-five tallies... I can't wait to check his future lists. You can also make a request and he will grant it ;D
3. Rose World. This blog is one of the blogs I visit often, but sometimes I don't leave a comment because the page loads too slow. I am just hoping Rose will correct this issue because her blog is really great. Each visitor will immediately get hungry after the visit because of the photos she posted - mostly yummy foods.
4. Sweetipie's Blog. Her blog is definitely hot with cool topics and honest opinions of a clumsy mommy. Great blog and I like her header too.
5. My Sassy Mind. I think this blog is hot too because her topic is hot featuring celebrity gossips, current events, scandals, photos, and anything happening in the entertainment business.

If your blog is not listed, it's definitely because it is on the number six and beyond. Sorry. Blame Bluedreamer too because he only asked me to list the Top 5. Anyway, in as much as I want to tag anyone, I don't have a name to list. It's because Bluedreamer already listed the bloggers I want to tag. Blame him again. Just kidding. If you weren't tagged and you want to join the game, feel free to grab this meme. Be sure to follow the rules above ;D

Why Some People Choose To Be Single?

Posted on March 1, 2008 by Hye

Single WomanHere’s another question to start the sizzling month of March. Today, I want to share my thoughts on "Why some people remain single throughout the life?" and "Why they never marry or had any relationship?"

I know it’s kinda rude when you ask someone “Why are you still single?” especially with strangers, so I never asked someone this question. I just keep on wondering and asking myself instead. I once had a neighbor who stayed single throughout her life. She died without a relationship, husband or kids. I know it was her decision to be single, but I can’t stop my curious mind from thinking. Whenever I saw her I always want to ask her but never had the courage. Also, some of my high school friends are still single until now but I never had the chance to ask them “Why?” because as I said, it’s kinda rude.

Here are some reasons why I think some people choose to be single. Just my opinion.
- Some are self-centered who feels happier and freer even without a husband.
- Some are afraid of relationship, marriage, and kids.
- Some are more passionate with what they are doing rather than having a relationship.
- Some are man-hater or relationship-hater
- Some are traumatized by the failure of their parents, friends, and relatives in terms of relationship.

I appreciate it if there are singles who can share their thoughts about the topic ;D

Avoid Bankruptcy For Your Own Good

Posted on by Hye

We may admit it or not, most of us are afraid of the word “bankruptcy”. The truth is I do. I am afraid to be broke because in my opinion, being bankrupt will not only affects you, it can also wreck your job, destroy your marriage or relationship with your family and friends, and even steal your peace of mind. In short, bankruptcy is a panicking word and life-changing event that causes lifelong damage.

This is the reason why most experts recommended proper debt management to avoid bankruptcy - for your own and family's good. I know numerous people who have been into bankruptcy. They lose their house, business, even family and friends. Some of them were able to move on after bankruptcy, but most of them stayed being bankrupt until now. The truth is, the word bankruptcy panics me so much. I am afraid to be broke, so in as early as now, I see to it that I can save part of my earnings and if possible, will not loan anything unless necessary.

In as early as now, proper management with your money and investments is necessary. Also, note that most bankruptcy cases can be avoided with proper assistance from certified counselors, so don’t be afraid to ask help.
