How to save and extend your laptops battery life

Laptops are becoming more and more popular. And for most users it is important to consider its battery life. The actual life of laptop battery will vary on your computer usage. Lately, I've noticed that my battery drains faster than usual and I realize I need to recalibrate my battery.

I've made some research and gathered some important tips that might also help you.

1). Check your Laptop Power Settings

Optimize your Power Options. Go to Control Panel then Power Settings and set it up so that power usage can be optimize. Adjust your display brightness and contrast to minimal cause it consume a lot of power.

2). Turn off external devices that are not in use

You can save on power usage by turning off external devices that are not in use such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Infrared, USB, and charging your ipod, mp3s, cell phones. Remove CD or DVD in their drive when not in use.

3). Close or cut down on programs running on your computer

All these running programs cut down your battery life. Do not multi-task like working on MS Office and at the same time playing your mp3's. Concentrate so you can work on faster.

4). Use Hibernate instead of Stanby Mode

Hibernate mode saves more power than Standby mode. It shutsdown your laptop so your battery won't take up much power but it saves your desktop on the last time you use it.

5). Take Care of you Battery

Like any other electronic batteries you need to take care of your battery. Do not over charged it. Drain your battery at least once a month or every 3 months. Clean your batteries metal contact with cloth. Always make sure that your battery doesn't overheat.

6) Work on a cool temperature and well ventilated space

The best way in extending your battery life is to operate on a cool temperature. Avoid putting your laptop on top of pillow cause this will stop the airflow that keeps your laptop cool.

Doing all these simple tips will help us extend our battery life and most importantly it saves us on spending to buy a new one.

A lot of Filipinos gathered and took time out last saturday night to watch "Kambal sa Tawa" featuring comedians Vice Ganda and Ogie Diaz, they really gave us total fun and entertainment and make us forget our problems for a while.

I can see the excitement in the faces of people habang nakapila kami outside ng Royal Taga Hall ng World Resort and nong finally nakapasok na kami inside, nakakatuwang makita na puno yung venue ng people from all ages.

Nag front act si Hapi with group of young dancers and followed by Ogie Diaz na nagpacontest pa ng spell the word using their butt and nagpacontest din sya ng mala singing bee and in fairness magagaling yong 4 contestants.haha!!!

And finally right after nagpatawa ni Ogie Diaz sumunod agad si Vice Ganda. Sa simula pa lang eh super enjoy na talaga sya sa pang ookray and the highlight is when Brad (american guy) went up in the stage at nakisakay naman talaga sya sa mga biro at pang ookray ni Vice.

Hard to say "Goodbye" for now

Saying Goodbye is never an easy thing..

My three weeks vacation was over and parting time is the hardest thing to do. It's not easy for me to packed my things again knowing that I'll be leaving the next day, that I will miss my family again, that I will not be able to join them during breakfast, lunch and dinner. And we will not be together for another 3 or 5 long years.

I will surely miss the laughters and cries of my niece and nephews. I will miss those times of playing with them, tickling and cuddling them while their lola keeps complaining on cleaning all their mess..haha!!!

I will definitely miss those moments with my nanay and tatay who also took a break for a while from their busy work just to be with me and spent every minute with me for us to be together even if we just stayed home or go on malling or any kind of simple bonding.

I will treasure those time that I'm stucked in traffic and always need to fall in line in paying to the SM cashiers, in the bank, in SM Foreign Exchange and long time in grocery. And the big thing..I surrendered in walking and shopping at the Mall of Asia and Greenbelt.whewwww!!!!so tiring...mind and money blowing also.

And I really enjoyed eating Odd Balls Squid Balls and Kikiam and Tender Juicy Hotdogs...sarap!!!

But all good things never last, after packing my things I slept at 1 o'clock in the morning and woke up like 3:45am to get dress and leave home before 4:30 am for my 8am flight. My nanay also woke up to prepare breakfast but I don't want to eat heavy. It's not really a good idea for me that my nanay and my tatay to go with me in the airport so I insisted that my only brother will go with me not them coz I will surely cry as I bid farewell to them. But can't prevent to cry either when they say goodbye and take care and hugged me so tight so I rushed to the car to keep myself for being emotional and cry.

But still, I can't help and prevent my tears na kusang tumutulo mula sa akin mga mata habang nasa car at tinatahak ang daan patungong airport. Pano pa kaya kung talagang ihatid nila ako hanggang sa airport. Huhu!!!cguro super drama ang scene ng lola nyo.hahaha!!!!

For a while nakalimutan ko munang malungkot dahil sa haba ng pila to get my boarding pass from Northwest Airlines pero nong sakay na ko ng plane I started to emote again and thingking na back ko normal na naman ang buhay ko na puro work and miles away from my family.

Anyways, I arrived in Narita Airport Terminal 1 in Japan around 1:05 pm but the thing is I need to wait there til 7:55pm for my connecting flight going to Saipan, kaya walang magawa ang lola mo kundi magwindow shopping ng paulit-ulit sa mga shops sa Narita Airport and mga 2 hours before my flight eh tsaka lang ako nagdecide bumili ng T-shirts and Rice Crackers..imagine un lang 3 items eh umabot na ng $50..huhuhu!!!!expensive talaga..

And for my final journey, I was on board on NW100 by 8:05pm and arrived in Saipan at 1:20am wednesday, buti na lang at very comfortable ang seating arrangement ko and I was able to sleep dahil sa sobrang pagod..

Wednesday morning at 8am back to work, kaya no time to emote pero after work yon ang nakaka emote kasi wala ng kapamilya to prepare food for me and lonely na kasi tahimik na sa bahay, wala ng makukulit na batang, nangungulit, papasaway at pakalat-kalat sa bahay at walang lola at lolo na saway ng saway...wahahahha...

hay life.....
