How to Get TOR and Diploma Authenticated for Overseas Employment Purposes

img src
One of the requirements in working abroad especially in selected countries is an authenticated TOR or diploma. It is popularly called red ribbon because literally, the papers have red ribbon on it. I had researched about how to get my TOR done online but the instructions were vague and I never learned until I personally processed it myself.

1. Go to your respective university registrar office and ask for a TOR/Diploma request slip or bring your old copies and tell them for red ribbon, they'll know what to do right away.

It was our first time to come back since we graduated. James and I noticed that the campus was very silent, as in literally silent, the students were all busy studying, we both wonder if it was their midterm exams. I was kinda lost when looking for the registrar office, I found it just adjacent to the old office though, specifically window number 25.

You Should Watch The Impossible

The title definitely reflects the whole movie itself, it was indeed something which you would think was impossible to happen, but it did! Though I have a heart about fiction stories, I am a fan of true story movies and this is the main reason why I swear to watch it.


I don't want to be a spoiler but I want to share my own overview of the story and review too.



It could have been a wonderful vacation for the Bennett family if the unfortunate event didn't occur. They stayed in a bungalow in front of the beautiful white sand beach and clear blue sea of Khao Lak, Thailand. Actually they were expecting the room to be in the third floor but certain things changed and they never mind since the area where they seated were indeed marvelous. 



The story's plot happened when the devastating tsunami occurred unexpectedly, as most tourists were enjoying their stay at the pool and some at the beach. I could imagine the actual situation; it must be a fast sequence of happenings. The angry sea water splashed its big waves over the resort and to the neighboring areas. The family had been separated when the tsunami took off. Maria, the mom had been hurt relentlessly and was lucky she found her eldest son while still being swirled by the washing machine-like waves of the furious waters. Lucas, the eldest had some injuries but endured it; he was his mom's help the entire time. His dad, on the other hand found his two younger brothers holding on a palm tree and happily the three of them were alright, they don't have any severe cuts or wounds.

How to Quickly Make A Word Collage

My current work team came up with our team t-shirts for our team pictorial this February and I was assigned to make the designs. Miss Bea, our team leader asked for something which showcases all our names on it and of which would still looks appealing and unique. Because I don’t want to make it hard for myself, I looked for something which will definitely save me time and effort. And just before I could search for anything, I recalled this website called wordle.net which makes a word collage. I came up with a simple collage with our team mates’ names on it. I wasn’t satisfied with how it went out since the names were kind of imbalanced in terms of the allocations.

So then I looked for an alternative, I thought it would be great if there are more than just single words for each names and that it would cover the whole front part of the t-shirts. We opt to use a blank one since it is so unisex and will definitely make the healthier ones slimmer!

I came upon this tagxedo.com site which aside from make up a word collages; I can upload a specific image and make it as a guide on how the collage would look like. I then made a template with a huge B on the center and when I uploaded it, added our names with a maximum of 200 words the result was indeed satisfying for me.

February Stuff : The Wants I Need

Long vacation leaves were approved for James and mine’s supposedly Surigao tour however, we need to cancel it out due to bad weather and work schedule conflict. So, I got the chance to roam around a couple of malls in the city and, unfortunately I swept some cash off and rarely, I have the guts to share what I had purchased.

I went to SM City Cebu first and went straight to Surplus store. I buy shirts here and I bought another one, it's a Pink-branded blue blouse with LOVE PINK label in the front part. It was good for Php 199 only!

Recalling January '13

I lied when I told you that December is my favorite month. The truth is that January is my first ever favorite one because it is my birth month; I know you will forgive me, everyone has their own birth month and that I suppose they consider it as their favorite month too.

Today marks the first month of February of the year 2013, and that I just bid goodbye to January 2013 last night, yes I was awake before the first minute of February stroke. Today, I would like to recall what happened the whole month.

I almost had my first zip-line experience, it was supposed to be the best place and the best people to be with yet because of the bad weather, but I never realized it. Anyways, there’s luxury of time to do it one of these days.
