Tuesday, March 31, 2009


If you've noticed, my playlist is kind of a mess. Its a mix of everything. And believe me when I say i've condensed that list! I put it on shuffle so its a surprise everytime I check out my blog haha.

I love how music brings me to all sorts of places, thats what it does to me. It evokes such a strong feeling that it brings me to the past and allows me to even feel what I was feeling a few years back. Ahhh, nostalgia :)

I pretty much listen to anything except country and heavy metal haha. I have a tendency to obsess on certain things and music is no exception. If I like a song, it will be on repeat for days and days until I get sick of it. Right now its mostly eheads and Franco Reyes' cast away. When I get tired of them, I move on to the next but usually go back to old favorites.

My current playlist contains songs by:

Amy Winehouse and Esthero

I love love these two girls. Anything by Esthero and Amy's album, Frank. When I first heard their songs, I remember thinking "oh wow, badass." They sing about things that are usually considered taboo and thats why I love them. And I like that they both have their own style. Im quite sick of hearing songs that all sound like theyre from one artist. I was so amazed by Amy, I think she was about 17 or 19 when she came out with Frank. I wished I could sing and write songs like her. (yeah I dream big! haha) So I have to thank Dom for introducing me to Amy.

Eraserheads and No Doubt

Their songs bring me back to the 90's! Although I was quite young when most of their songs came out. I remember when almost always, it was being played on radio stations. I like that the eheads songs sound "carefree" to me. I wish I was a 90's kid ( I think i belong more to the y2k generation ek ek lol) Just makes me so happy listening to their songs. When I think No doubt, I think girl power haha for some weird reason. I think its mostly because I think of Gwen as such a strong figure in the music industry. Oooh Oasis I love too because they make me feel like im in the 90's. I seriously think ive missed out on the fun during the 90's. darnit!


During a time when I thought it was impossible for me to like rock/alternative whatev you call it, they made me change my mind. I have to thank my brother for influencing me to listen to them. Again with the strong feelings, though no memory in particular their songs make me feel a certain way. idk.

Incubus and Franco Reyes

(Swoon! lol)

I will talk about them together because if youve read one of my previous post. I heard about Franco Reyes through a friend and he asked me what band I listen to and yadah yadah (its down there lol).
You can listen to Franco Reyes' music over here: Franco Reyes

Music is so relateable, no matter what song it is you find a line that makes you think "oh theyre singing about me!". HAHA. Except maybe Steely Dan! haha I love them but I so cannot relate to their songs. It just makes me happy listening to them and reminds me of running around bf doing errands and basically hanging out with my Dad. So thanks Dad!

The other songs on my playlist that are new, are just crap haha no pun intended. I wont even say which ones, but im sure you'll figure it out. I do admit that well, theyre there because I like them. But give me about 2 more months and i'll probably get over them. Just like the new stuff that are being played on the radio. Yeah, theyre good for when youre in the clubs, theyre catchy but theyre basically crap. Nothing good ever comes out anymore, theyre all the same.

But the stuff I listen to are usually just shuffled around, so im re-educating myself.

Staying on track, a couple of years ago ( I dont remember if it was last year or 2 years ago) I got an opportunity to help out on a video. Its nothing big really, I just made the Carousel. No, I didnt make it I just "colored" it haha sort of designed and colored it. Well, but no matter how small that part was, its something to be proud of. I remember I was on hospital duty and was doing this instead haha. You'll see the carousel in the first few seconds of the video. :)

Please Watch in HQ. (I do not own this video and no copyright infringement is intended).

Im going to switch up my playlist when I get tired of the songs there. I have so many songs that I want to include, but I want all of them to be heard so I'll leave it at that for now.

One mess of an entry.

Different things rolled into one entry.


Great News! I finally feel much better and have the appetite to eat! haha But that is good news, because for 5 days I couldnt eat anything. And if i did eat no matter how small the portion was it just didt not sit well in my stomach. :( But today while walking around in Walnut Creek, i felt it! Hunger! :)


I was looking for pictures of what I had today haha but this is all I found. I had a Yik Yak Salad which is an Oriental Salad with south of the border flair. A crsip of mix greens, cabages, jicama, red peppers, snow peas, tossed with sweet sesame dressing and topped with toasted almonds (yeah, that description is from their menu haha) with a side of Roadhouse Onions which is like the onion brick at Racks but much much much better! :)

And no Im not a pig haha I didnt have two I shared one with my tita. I want one NOW. mmm Im a fussy salad eater haha. I eat them because I have to and I like veggies but its rare that I actually like the salads from restos (this one is a fave and the one from cyma is pure love! ) Which is difficult when youre a starting vegetarian/pescetarian because you think well what else am i gonna eat?! But ive survived for almost a year! :) but anyway i'll save that for an entry on my anniversary haha


Anyway, Blue and yellow makeup. I back to mac'ed quite a few things the other day. But the ones I wanted to get were out of stock. Cant really complain when youre getting free stuff so I just got Clarity (they didnt have freshwater or electric eel) and Knight Divine (I want me some chrome yellow!). Clarity is a matte rich aqua color and very similar to Electric Eel, there was barely any difference when I swatched them on my hand but Electric Eel is a satin bright blue e/s with shimmer. Knight Divine ( i kept thinking Dark Knight! haha) is a Black with silver pear e/s its almost like dark gray though. Im about half done with the blue palette! yay! but im not buying anymore haha I constantly have to tell myself not to, but it just happens haha but mind you I just participated in a recycling program and just got them for free so that doesnt count haha.

Hot mess. LOL

This wouldve been so much better with chrome yellow :(

What I Used:

UDPP - base
Coastal Scent Yellow E/S - lid
M.A.C. Clarity E/S - lid, crease
M.A.C. Prussian - outer corner crease
M.A.C. Nylon - inner corner
M.A.C. MSF in Perfect Topping (Sugarsweet Collection) - brow highlight

M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Fdtn
M.A.C.Moisture Cover concealer
Blush from the Coastal Scents Blush Paltte (1st pan on the bottom)

I wish I coudve taken better pictures but we were in a hurry to get to my cousins spelling bee. He was his schools representative for the county and he was one of the youngest. He's in 3rd grade and was up against 8th graders! how fair is that? but anyway, proud that he made it that far :)

MSF - Refined (Tan/peach/coral melange)

MSF - Perfect Topping (Pink/peach/lavender melange)

I love Perfect Topping. I got the wrong one, I was supposed to get refined which suits my coloring much better but I tried it anyway and I love it. Though I dont see myself buying more soon since it has very limited use. Im not a fan of the frying pan look so this I will mostly use as a cheek, nose, brow highlighter and its huge! It will take me years to finish it. My Belightful is about a year old and its pretty much intact.

But looking at Refined makes me want to get it haha. Nah, decisions are constantly made and though i feel tempted all the time to just splurge I always have to remind myself that my luck will eventually run out and in a few months I will be back to being broke again. So i better save!


Ahh decisions decsions. I wish that when we decide, it becomes written on stone hahah. But life doesnt work that way and you have to remind yourself over and over again the reasons for your decisions. Like deciding not to get Refined. Whenever I see it, i have to tell myslef over and over again that I dont NEED it haha i just WANT it. No but I guess I wouldnt want it be that way. Its just so complicated haha we always have to conscioulsy make those decisions even when we say or think weve decided haha

We are always faced with decisions. What to eat? What to wear? What to watch?blah blah blah. And bigger decisions in life, "What do I do?" and making decisions is never easy. Especially when you constantly remind yourself that the decisions you make now will affect you in the future (think-butterfly effect haha) But thats the thing, how do you know that the decision you made was the right one? Most of the time, we find out, when we realize that we made the wrong decision.

The 80/20 Rule

A repost from a friends blog that I found interesting. This is for all of my newly married and soon to be married friends and everyone else!

"Interesting quote from the movie 'Why did I get married?'

In most cases, especially in relationships, you will only get 80% of what you NEED and you will hardly get the other 20% that you WANT in your relationship. There is always another person (man or woman) that you will meet and that will offer you the other 20% which is lacking in your relationship that you WANT. And believe me, 20% looks really good when you are not getting it at all in your current relationship.

But the problem is that you will always be tempted to leave that good 80% that you know you have, thinking that you will get something better with the other 20% that you WANT.

But as reality has proven, in most cases, you will always end up with having the 20% that you WANT and loosing the 80% that you really NEED and that you already had.

Be careful in deciding between what you WANT and NEED in your life.

Adultery happens when you start looking for what you don't have. 'Wow, this girl in my office is a real looker. But it's not
her Wynona Rider features that got me. I'm crazy about her because she's also understanding, intelligent, tender - so many things that my spouse is not'.

Somewhere along the way, you'll find a woman or a man who will be more charming or sensitive. More alluring. More thoughtful. Richer. Have greater sex appeal. And you will find a woman or man who will need you and pursue you and go loco over you more than your spouse ever did.

Because no wife or husband is perfect. Because a spouse will only have 80% of what you're looking for. So adultery takes place when a husband or wife looks for the missing 20%. Let's say your wife is melancholic by nature.

You may find yourself drawn to the pretty clerk who has a cherry laugh no matter what she says: 'I broke my arm yesterday,
Hahahaha . . . .'

Or because your wife is a homebody in slippers and pajamas, smelling of garlic and fish oil, you may fall for a fresh-smelling young sales representative that visits your office in a sharp black blazer, high heels, and a red pencil-cut skirt Or because your husband is the quiet type, your heart may skip a beat when you meet an old college flame who has the makings of a talk show host.

But wait! That's only 20% of what you don't have.

Don't throw away the 80% that you already have!

That's not all. Add to your spouse's 80% the 100% that represents all the years that you have been with each other. The storms you have weathered together. The unforgettable moments of sadness and joy as a couple. The many adjustments you have made to love the other. The wealth of memories that you've accumulated as lovers.

Adultery happens when you start looking for what you don't have.

But faithfulness happens when you start thanking God for what you already have.

But I'm not just talking about marriage...Ü "

First of all, Happy anniversary/monthsary to my love caby and ralph!

Anyway, yeah that was related because they officially got together about 2 days after I left. haha So its my 3rd monthsary too! Well actually it was yesterday, the 24th.

and time goes by so fassst! its insane. I feel like im in between, I feel that I left just recently but also feel like ive been floating around for quite some time now too. When I think about it, 3 months is such a short span of time you know? But a lot of things have happened, so I feel like its all been stretched out into a year.

See, for 2009 I :
1. Passed the Nursing board exam
2. got a "job"
3. have seen my baby cousin GROW!

and a bunch of other stuff. I got lazy to complete the list. But some of those things are just soo insignificant to me right now and I just get lost. I cant even keep track of days and dates. Im just floating. And thats what ive been doing for 3 months. Everything is robotic. I once complained to a friend and he said "ahh, SSDD" I had no idea what that meant so I asked. "Same shit, different day". But what else is there to do?

The only thing keeping me here is my Mother and my income. haha of course my mom is way more important, my sideline is just a bonus. I get to see her once a year every christmas. So I found this as an oppurtunity to spend more time with her. I will miss her when I go back home, so im trying to make the most out of it. And soo, nothing is going to make me go home. Even though there are days when I just feel so lonely that I want to get on the next available flight back home. But, time and timing ahh is not always on our side. And what is 6 months? compared to the 4-5 years that my mom has spent away from home? I also dont know when I can go back to visit my mom so I finally decided. The rest of the world can wait! It isnt like its going to stop with me. So I say, carpe diem!

But on a lighter note, this trip has taught me a lot of things. Little things that I consider to be missing pieces of myself. Which I will not divulge here because well who cares really hahaha. I think I will look back at this someday and be happy with my decision. Emphasis on someday. haha i am so not feeling it right now!

Facebook! Is keeping me company. I was just telling caby a while ago "I freakin comment on just about anything I see on facebook, thats how bored I am!" haha. But really, friends on facebook and elsewhere are making it easier. So thanks guys. I just really do not need to spend any more time with myself! So while Dia isnt around yet, virtual friends will do. lol. well atleast, they arent imaginary!

And while some are just so awesome right now. I cant help but wonder if things are going to be the same when I get back. Again with the 3 months thing. So much has happened not just to me but to other people too. I feel sad that a lot of things that I was used to has passed as the year ended. Its just never going to be the same! It doesnt help knowing that most, if not all my girls are losers now. I call them losers because they have a job and have no time for me. haha.

Anyway, I originally put 3 as the title of this entry. but yadah yadah yadah yadah. The 3 months that have passed has been both pretty good and very bad. Kind of scary to think of what else is in store for me for the next 9 months. Im kind of hoping that ive had my fill of the bad stuff already and the next 9 months will all be smooth sailing haha wishful thinking!

So though I dont believe in this crap, here is my 2009 horoscope (HAHAHA)

2009: Leo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

2009 Overview. 2009 is likely to be a banner year for relationships, connecting with a significant other, and work with the public, dear Leo. Some of you will form a partnership that either leads to marriage or is otherwise significant, some will enhance an existing close relationship, and most will derive much joy from their relationships with significant others. New partners met this year are likely to feel much like a breath of fresh air. Challenging relationships, or challenges in relationships, tend to be left behind. 2009 is a commitment-friendly year for you. Some of you will be taking a casual affair to a whole new level. Romance becomes a little more serious, but "fun-serious". Many of you will fall in love, or re-commit to a current lover. You continue to buckle down with money this year. Matters are not moving quickly when it comes to personal finances—in fact, there can be some struggles regarding unpredictable trends with money from outside sources or shared with a partner, which should be sorted out by October. Those born early in the sign (from July 23-27) may be required to make adjustments in their work and health routines in order to accommodate new changing circumstances. Towards the end of year, many of you will be getting serious about learning, studying hard, and changing your attitudes towards work. Many will be working on perfecting and refining skills that will be useful on the job, and some will be forced into that position. Career matters are dynamic and exciting from June 7-July 5.

Okay, see this just proves that im not typical LEO haha the whole "feel" of the prediction might be the exact opposite of whats happening in my life. The "changing attitudes towards work" would be nice though.

hmm and a bunch of other interesting other stuff there too!! that I will now go check haha. Oh I am not in any way associated with the website. I just typed 2009 horoscope leo and clicked on some random link. anyway.

Coastal Scents Product Images and Reviews

I guess its about time to give a review about the stuff I recently just got from Coastal Scents. Im sure there are a gazillion of them, but most of the ones Ive seen were made by people who have light to fair skin. I was looking for reviews made by people who had the same or similar coloring as me and I think I only found one. So I hope this helps.

Stuff I got:

1. 88 Ultra Shimmer Palette
2. 88 Matte Palette

3. 10 Blush Palette

4. Gel liners in Envious (green), Sky line (light blue), and Indigo Blue

5. Contour and Blush Palette
6. Italian Badger angle brush
7. Synthetic angle blush and define
8. Pink Blending Fluff Brush

9. 8 pack 26 mm Magnetic pans

88 Ultra Shimmer Palette and 88 Matte Palette (5 out of 5)

Okay, so it might seem a little crazy to have both based on what the pictures look like. They have similar colors but the formulas are different. The Matte palette of course has matte colors a few shimmery and satin ones too. The Ultra Shimmer palette speaks for itself. haha Overall, I find them to be very good. There were only a few shadows thar were not as pigmented and would fade after a while. The Matte palette is a little bit chalky and you really need a base for these shadows; pretty sure that they would eventually fade if you dont use one. And since its a bit chalky theres more fallout than the usual. The Shimmer palette is crazy-chalky too! but it gets the job done and for the price, you really cant complain.

Before ordering I already knew that theyre quite small, the pans are about as big as a dime. But I really didnt realize how small they were until I saw them. But, since theyre very pigmented, you do not need much. *I've also seen some on evilbay, starmakeuphaven and on multiply. The same products that come from the same Manufacturer and theyre a bit cheaper. I just chose to get it from Coastal Scents because ive heard that customer service was great and I didnt want any hassle on returns if I got broken shadows/palettes.

These palettes deliver! 5 out of 5 becuase theyre highly pigmented and good color pay off, has a variety of colors, I liked the variation in the formulas too. The only thing I dont like is there seems to be a lot more fallout than the usual since most tend to be chalky but im overlooking that because for the price, nothing beats it! haha

I dont like the new packaging. It used to be plain black and now they have Coastal scents printed on it, I think it kind of makes it look cheap with the font that was used. I actually tried rubbing it out off with acetone haha which made it worse. But I planned on covering it up with something anyway

They both look the same. But theyre actually very different

Left: Matte; Right: Shimmer

Left: Shimmer; Right: Matte

Size compared to M.A.C. Eye shadows

10 Blush Palette
(5 out of 5)

This was the only palette that I wanst sure of getting. The reviews I saw online were mostly from either fair skinned or darker skinned girls. I wasnt sure about it because the colors seemed a little too intense for my coloring and I do not fancy looking like a clown. But it was around 16 dollars! One blush from M.A.C. is 18! do the math. Even if I end up using 2 - 4 blushes, this palette saved me a lot of money. But this has got to be my favorite out of all the stuff I ordered. The blushes can be as intense or as sheer as you want them to be depending on how heavy or light you apply them. There are 4 matte blushes and the rest are kind of shimmery/sheer.

5! 5! 5! These blushes are gorgeous! im in love with it! go get this and do not hesitate im glad I did :)

Plain Black Matte Case (Just the way I like it-pretty sure theyre all going to have that tacky label soon though)
1st , 3rd, 4th and 5th on the bottom is matte

Size Comparison: Next to M.A.C. eye shadows and Pressed iridescent powder (belightful)

6 Color Contour and Blush Palette (4 out of 5)

I was most excited about this one. I got M.A.C's sculpting duo a couple of months back and loved it. I wanted an alternate though because I didnt want to use it every single time I go out (it's too precious to waste haha) So I was thrilled to see this on the Coastal Scents website.

The first time I tried it, I used the Italian Badger Angle Brush (I bought it for this palette) and i ended up looking like I had dirt on my face :( The highlights made me look ghastly, it was a little too chalky. But I knew I had to try it again sooo. I used a different brush and the contour powder was great, similar to M.A.C.'s shadester. I really do find them easy to use and they can go on as light and as dark as you want them too; pretty much like the blushes, it all depends on how heavy or light you apply them. I found that you have to go a little light with the highlighters, I use the second one on the top. I dont think i'll ever have any use for the white one maybe i'll use it to pack under my eyes before applying eye shadow to catch fallout but I havent tried. The highlighter on the bottom I can use for my brow bone and maybe try it when my tan fades lol

BUT the blushes make it worth it. The blushes that come with it are not in the blush palette, and these colors are perfect for my coloring! They remind me of something like M.A.C.'s margin or cubic. And the pans are HUGE!

4 out of 5 because I just dont think that the highlighters are very useful to people who have the same or similar coloring as me.

This has that tacky label too :/ I wish they left it alone or did something better with it.

Size Compared to M.A.C. Iridiscent pressed powder (belightful)

Gel Liners (5 out of 5)

Its not very often that I see an eyeliner that looks interesting. I got these because I thought skyline and envious were pretty nice colors and I planned on using them as a base too. Skyline and envious were great, the only annoying thing was the mouth of the pot is a little small but other than that its fine. The indigo blue, which I actually got for my mom was disappointing though. When I opened it, it was kind of misshaped and was kind of moist very far from how the two others were. We didnt see it though after a few days so I couldn't get a replacement. But ive read some reviews saying that the replacements were the same as well. So I guess its because of the formula or something. What I do with it though is I put it in the freezer before use.

5 out of 5 for Envious and skyline - nice colors, multi-purpose and does the job!
1 out of 5 for Indigo blue :( too bad, I really liked the color but everyone seems to be having a problem with theirs too.

TOP: Loreal HIP eyeliner (ya'll know what it is, I forgot exactly what its called) and M.A.C. Paint pot (Delft)
Bottom: Indigo Blue (i dont know if you can see it, its a little watery), envious (green), skyline (sky blue)

Big Difference! Oily/watery indigo blue and creamy solid envious

Pink Blending Fluff Brush (4 out of 5)
Im not sure if its obvious in the picture, but this is huge! I dont think i'll ever use this for eye makeup unless im just putting a wash of color. But for what its supposed to do? nahh. I use this for highlighting though, tried contouring with it but its a little to fluffy and flimsy. It works well buffing out harsh contour lines though. I like this brush but im giving it a 4 out of 5 because it doesnt do what its supposed to do! haha but there are many other uses for it so im keeping it in my kit.

It did shed quite a bit when I washed it (2-5 hairs and some that broke) but its so dense and soft too. It did however, become a little more fluffy after it dried.

Synthethic Angle Blush and Define (3 out of 5)

Ive only used this a couple of times. I still prefer my stippling brush or my 2$ elf brush (that came with a bronzer btw) for contouring and blush. Yes! I would rather use a semi prickly brush over this! haha

I love how its soft for a synthetic brush but its not as dense as it looks :/ I feel like im wasting a whole lot of product whenever im using it. It picks up color, but the color stays on the brush! haha the only good thing about that is you dont have to worry about getting too much on your face on the first application. I was disspointed, but its an okay brush better than the one below.

It did not shed when I washed it, it didnt have a strong odor to it either and surprisingly it was back to its old shape when it dried.

I aplogize for the dirty brush lol

Italian Badger Angle Brush (1 out of 5)

The only reason why I gave it 1 out of 5 is because I like how it looks haha. Its a little smaller than I expected but I thought it would be perfect for contouring. I was so excited to use it, so I washed it immediately only to find that it lost its shape after washing. Im not mean to my brushes and the ones ive had for 2 years look fine so you cant put the blame on me! haha

One wash and it was blech. It also isnt as dense as it looked like. But I still tried it, I tried contouring with this brush and it made me look like I had dirt on my face! Im not an expert on contouring or what not but other brushes seem to work well soo if my technique and the other brushes work then clearly this brush doesnt! haha.

But seriously, I was so excited to get this. sad oh well. I'll probably keep it as a back up blush brush or to buff out excess blush. But keep your $6-7, not worth it!

Rock band

Micky: What rock band would you listen to?
Me: ughhh is incubus a rock band?
Micky: yeah
Me: okay incubus then. but only because I have a crush on the singer


I am seriously clueless when it comes to rock. I mean I do listen to some songs but I usually dont remember the name of the band or of the song.

I dont know if this band has been around for a while but they are awesome. Thanks Micky for sharing! :)

I actually like the other song better - "I want you" http://www.imeem.com/jrjohnray/music/fMU0BnEb/franco-reyes-i-want-you/. Heavy lol. Reminds me of Alexz G. though
but Cast away is my favorite :)

I am sick

blech. the last time I got sick was september last year and I felt like I was going to die. I lost so much weight I had to force myself to eat. Well anyway, i feel like im going to die again. Its probably due to not taking my vitamins after soo long and unhealthy habits. Oh well. thats what you get haha. last time it lasted 3 days with medicine. Im not taking any now because im just being stubborn haha.

Did you know that contrary to popular belief, citrus and vitamin c doesnt do much when you have a cold? dont ask me why because I dont know haha.

Arghhh..my head is chaotic. I have a couple of drafts waiting to be finished. I hope I dont have to work tomorrow because I just really dont need a crying, screaming and kicking koala stuck to my waist and it wouldnt be wise to have her around me anyway.

Dia's coming over! finally! I mean soon enough i think? haha im not even sure I couldnt concentrate because my head was pounding. But I think she is, I hope she stays until her ticket expires which is around...i dont think im allowed to say. but anyway, that'll make things faster if shes around then i just have to wait another ughh ladidada days until im home.

Home. Things to do and shit. hay haha. Im thinking of bummin for a few months before I actually look for a job? why? because I havent figured what to do with myself yet. Go back to school and do what I promised myself? ughhh i'll be around 33 by the time i finish school and im not financially capable of doing that just yet. Study something else? maybe. Do what my parents want me to do? mmm il think about it. And besides, I see working as this whole new phase in your life and I dont think im quite ready to make that leap yet. I dunno, I always feel like ending and starting a new chapter in my life is scary. it brings me closer to 30, to 40, to 50 to death! haha

anyway, im just rambling. im sure most of the stuff i typed wont make much sense to me in the morning.

Be Responsible

This is a post from my multiply blog. I support spaying and neutering and believe that pet owners should have it done. I love kittens and puppies but if you dont have the means to take care of all of them or have to resort to giving them away or selling them, youre not being responsible. I was guilty of it and at one point I had close to 20 cats! Some got sick and some died. It was a terrible experience and that made me decide to have them neutered/spayed.

Each year, millions of unwanted animals are euthanized (put to death) because there just aren't as many homes available as there are animals. If that isn't reason enough for you, read on. And much worse, there are a lot of stray cats and Dogs roaming the streets which of course lead to accidents causing injuries and death. Especially in the Philippines when there are very few shelters and a few people who have the compassion to help injured stray animals (kudos to you guys)

Top Reasons to spay or neuter your pets:
  • Spaying reduces the risk of certain types of cancers and infections in females, especially if it is performed prior to the first heat.

  • Spaying also eliminates the possibility of getting blood stains on your couch, floor, bed, etc. when your female has her heat cycle.

  • Neutering lessens a dog's temptation to roam, as well as to fight. (Studies show that the majority of dog bites are made by intact , untrained male dogs); Same with cats. Also once they become adults, theyre more likely to be less affectionate (when not spayed) especially the females.

  • Neutering also lessens your dog's temptation to fall in love with your company's legs. heheh

A lot of people think its selfish to do this and deprive the animal of their whatever instinct (haha) But the thing is, not spaying or neutering your pet increases the chances of your pets (future) offsprings to be placed in a bad home or worse, to end up in the streets.
