It's Official: I'm a Loom Band Addict

Two months ago, I went to Divisoria to buy some items for re-selling.  I chanced upon some loom bands at P196 for a dozen packs of looms with a hook.  The rubber bands in each pack were approximately 200.  Cheap huh!  So I bought a dozen and checked online on how to make a fishtail pattern.

I saw a loom/ladder with bands already but I didn't buy it because it was P80. There was another type, and it cost P60. Well, I didn't but it because I thought they were broken because the boxes were so dirty and old.

Fast forward to last week. I went looking for a loom/ladder at Divi and I was schocked to see the 80-peso-kit being sold at P700 at the bangketa!!! This is Divi for heaven's sake!!!

Pissed, I went to trusty old YouTube and looked for videos that taught one how to make loom bands using one's fingers. 

So, here are some of my finished products. I've made about 10 each kind that I posted. These are the only ones I made this morning:

1. Fishtail:

The first pattern I learned.

2. Inverted Fishtail:

Getting Up and Moving Forward

The last month was hell.  I know you know what I mean.
I'm trying to live my life without my Papa around (physically), though I often see him in my dreams. If you've lost a parent, you know how it feels.
Life must go on. I know Pamsie would want all of us to move on and live our life to the fullest.

More Typos So Early in the Morning

Mornings: the perfect time to get acquainted with the latest events and "chikas". 

It's bad to read about bad news so early in the morning, but what's even worse is the numerous typo errors on the page that one is reading. I'm not saying I've got perfect grammar. But Yahoo! Philippines should because it's got its own staff to edit and copyread its posts.

This morning, this is what I noticed in one post by Yahoo! Philippines:

"Blakdyak used to be a popular. (Screengrab from TV Patrol)"

So, Blakdyak used to be a popular screengrab from TV Patrol. I thought he was a real person. Screengrab lang pala sya.

Here's another one this morning:

"4. The sun is combines two representations"

This is so glaring, I don't know why nobody from Yahoo! PH noticed. Why, oh why?  Hayyy!!!!

Good thing, I had a hearty breakfast this morning so these two didn't dampen my already gloomy mood.
