Food Trip Friday #2

Yes, I know I am late but just as everyone says better late than never. Anyway, this blog was down for almost two weeks and you can read about it here: Finally, My Food Blog is Back! Now, I am eager and excited to join again.

As for my entry, here is mine Favorite KFC Meal Fully Loaded Meal with Chili Lime flavored chicken!! Yummy!!! The spicy taste with a hint of lime, always make me eat double rice!


It was offline for almost two weeks because the hosting company where I hosted it said that there servers failed and was badly defaced. And now, this will leave you asking for sure, why on the earth did I host my blog somewhere else when I have my won blog hosting business.

Well, here is the straight answer; I was convinced by a sales talk from their Customer Service Representative telling me that their server is cool and awesome with unlimited features at a very low price (mura daw sobra)! Since some of my blog hosting clients wanted to have unlimited hosting features at a reasonable price, I opted why not take their offer and try it for a month or so. This is what I usually do when I buy new servers and before offering them to my clients (and I am glad that I always do!). Then I paid for one year, installed my new domains on it… then after a few weeks – poof!!! The worst downtime on my blogs happened!!

But since I am a patient person (or I thought I was), I waited for many days and believed on their promises that we will be online by next week since the downtime happened by Thursday or Friday. The next week finished in a flash… still no uptime. Then I sent them an email asking for a refund even 80% of what I paid. Instead of a refund, they replied to give them my username because they will provide the back-ups over the weekend. And now, it’s already Tuesday, no back-up was provided. Bummer!!

So, I opted to recreate my blog again. Copy pasted all the post from its Google cache (Thank you Mr. G!), then changed my nameservers, installed it on my reliable blog hosting service, waited for my blog to propagate, then finally, when I was able to access, I posted my previous blog posts and recreate the wordpress theme I did for the Minute Maid contest. And that is the reason why you are seeing my blog again… ONLINE for good!!

Now, what did I lost along the way?? Well, I lost around 70 plus of blog comments in my Minute Maid Pulpy post alone… not to mention posts from my other entry. Sad… sad… sad… Aside from that, I was almost in the verge of disqualification from the Minute Maid contest. Good thing my entry is back online before the contest ended. Thank God!

Lesson Learned? Never trust unlimited features because there is no such thing especially if it’s offered so cheap. Another thing is… if you pay cheap service then you are sure that you paid for a crappy one. (Mura nga, na pa mura naman ako.)

So, my conclusion?? Stick to my own reliable blog hosting services. At least when its down, I have myself to fight against with. LOL!! Grin

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe… they squeezed a fresh orange juice into the bottle because I swear I could taste its pulpy goodness!!

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added. So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED! That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse…carcinogens! Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I… am sure that achieving my goal to become healthy and fit this year will be easy with Minute Maid.

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right? Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means… I can continue sharing this healthy drink with my children worry-free!

Bella (now 1 year old) Drank Minute Maid at Seven Months

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added – meaning it’s THAT natural, it’s almost like it’s plucked straight from the tree, it’s just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it’s got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives’ bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is ’cause it’s got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I’m gonna drink it always as part of my healthy regimen goal for 2011 and beyond! Aside from that, I will encourage my children to drink the natural goodness of Minute Maid!
