Find out who gives away your email address with Gmail trick

When you give your email address to a website, you hope that they don't sell or trade your address to a bunch of spammers. Well if they do, here is a simple way to see what sites are responsible for what particular piece of email. This requires you have a Gmail account.

If your Gmail login name was and you went to to fill out a registration form, instead of just entering as your email, enter it as instead. When Gmail sees a "+" in an email address, it uses all the characters to the left of the plus sign to know who to send it to. In this example it would still send it to

Now whats cool is if you search Gmail for username+samplesitecom, you will see all massages that were sent to that email address.

To see who is responsible for sending a specific message click the Show Details link and you will see the complete address.

How I Celebrated My Birthday

8th Nov 2006 - My 25th Birthday.

All was planned by Regine and my job was just to follow.

I have no idea. We finally reached a place which till now I don't even know what is the name of the restaurant. There wasn't any sign of any signboard nor name of the restaurant written on the menu. I would grade the restaurant highly for their ambience.

After we finished our main course, we were served with ice cream and brownie (both were heart shaped) by one of the waiters. On top of the brownie was a lighted candle. This arrangement was preplanned and well-timed. I appreciate Regine's effort for this planning.

We left for home early after the dinner because we still need to work the next day. Oh ya.. I got a birthday card, a bear (she also has got one), and a wallet from Regine as my birthd…
