Unexpected Blessings!

It was Thursday afternoon when i received the text message from my brother that the most long awaited pension claim of our late father for the past ten years has been approved. My brother used to send hundred follow up letters to PVAO and i even go to Manila personally in PVAO office sometime 2005. But we started 1993 for that pension claim, as we can imagine what kind of government we have, and very disgusting they deposited the money last December 18,2007. and just this June 27,2008 they let us know that they already deposit the money. Why? I know there's story behind, because the bank has a policy if nobody is going to withdraw within that period policy of the bank the money is going back to the Financial Management Division, in that the story begins! you got what i mean?
Very corrupt government we have, the amount is not the big deal, the important thing is to serve the people in a good and honest way!

joke for the week!

student's talking:

FEU: your tuition, it's just my allowance for a week.
LA SALLE: your tuition is just my allowance for a day.
UP: yeah! pero final n'yo, seatwork lang namin! (laban kayo!)

Graduation Speech:

"good evening", i am graduation, i invitation you all to eat our house because i know someday that i will eat your house too, ha ha ha ha!
"i'm sorry i told you i will eat you all, i died only five chickens and two porks, ha ha ha!
"sorry, guys, it will not enough for all and i will ask my father to cook my mother because they was the most important persons in my life! i thank you."

MV Princess of the Stars

Another tragedy is again encountered by the Filipino people. Many lives lost upon the sinking of the boat MV Princess of the stars. And President Gloria Arroyo investigated the Philippine Coast Guard why they give permit to sail, where in fact earlier the weather forecast has already announced that there is storms coming that mostly hit partly in Visayas. As we can imagine this tragedy were always repeated and hundreds of lives were lost, and even some other bodies was not able to recovered where it was.
As fas as i can remember two years ago the same tragedy happen and the same company the Sulpicio Lines is involved. It seems that it is well prepared to be happened. What does it mean? Is this the sign that the maintenance is not properly done? There should be a proper infection by the Coastguard officials, and it's better to review some policy before giving permit especially there's storm signal.

God Bless Us!

If we keep God inside our heart, there is nothing that will come into our life that we won't be able to handle .And those who appear in our life whether to help or to harm are all given by God. Meet all of them with a peaceful heart but with a warrior's spirit. We will fail many times, but in failing, we will learn, and in learning we will find our way. Remember there are no mistakes in life only lessons. And lessons will keep on repeating themselves until we learned.

Good things you've done will never be lost, your kind act takes root and every bit of love you show will come right back to you. For God knows you have a good heart.
Sometimes, you have to fight for something to make everything alright. You give your best and you give your all, yet, you still lose. But if ever, you get tired, just tell Jesus, He'll take the fight and win it all with you!

Offshore Drilling - You want it?

As gas prices continue to increase, Congress continues to blame others while ignoring practical steps to stop the pain Americans are feeling at the pump. To lower gasoline prices and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, we need real solutions to our energy challenges.

Citzenship For Sale?

What if the United States began charging for the legal right to immigrate? Nobel Laureate Gary Becker (University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business) came up with the idea. Becker's not trying to eject illegal workers; in fact, he said, they could pay to stay. The idea is to upend the existing black market that exacts a high price for illegal immigrants -- some who pay with their lives.

A Lesson For A Media

"all is well that ends well" according to broadcast-journalist Ces Drillon and company who was survived by the kidnapped terrorist Abu Sayyaf in Sulu. Drillon and her cameraman Jimmy Encarnacion and the Mindanao State University Professor Octavio Dinampo was released by the kidnappers just the other night in the hide places near in Patikol, Sulu.
The kidnappers first released was the assistant cameraman Angelo Valderama last week after they give two million pesos (2M) for ransom. But the negotiator says that it was only one hundred thousand for their board and lodging, WOW! very expensive staying at Abu Sayyaf just like you are staying at five star hotel, sounds funny isn't it?
Nobody knows if the family of Ces Drillon or the the ABS-CBN was the one who paid for the ransom, and this could be the lesson to all the media that they should not trust this group, they are a traitorous person. We live only one life! Be very careful!

Government Officials Do Something!

There's a joke that the Filipino leaders are like Taal Volcano, they have been around for a long time and doing nothing. And it's true, just take a look this terrorist group it's been a long time that this group has been active and even destroying some people lives. I'm wondering why the Government official can't do anything about this group. They should find ways how to stop this terrorist group and not to focus of their own interests.
Just like what happened recently the kidnapped ransom of Ces Drillon and company. Fifteen million pesos (15M) is a very big amount. And this is only my opinion, that somebody is behind this kidnapped for their personal interests. And i agree the statement of DOJ Raul Gonzales.

Your Firsts

Most of our 'firsts' made some sort of impact on us ... they have become the fabric of our lives ... I don't remember my first romantic kiss, but I do remember my first beer ... it was with my dad at a Knights of Columbus event ... so, dig back and remember.
Many thanks to Joan Batanes for suggesting this conversation!!

God Answers Prayer

sI see in television this morning that Ces Drillon and company was finally release by the kidnappers without any ransom policy, and they are all safe. Everybody is praying for their safety by the hands of the kidnappers. Nothing is powerful than prayer, and just believe that He is just there to protect you from harm and danger.
I just hope and pray that everything ends well. Nothing is impossible with God. Just ask and He will give it to you, and just knock and He will open the door for you.

Someone's Behind?

As i'm watching The Buzz this afternoon at ABS-CBN, Princess Revilla a sister of Senator Bong Revilla is again involved in maltreating one of her helper, and this is the second time where she was involved in this case. And the victims were simply a poor lass. I can't figure out why this influential people were given so much attention. Princess Revilla got a high grade attorney. While she was interviewed by Boy Abunda, she denied all the accusations against her. And she tell that someone is behind in this case just to ruin her reputation.
Who is she? she's not involved in politics and she's not an actress either! my gosh! would you believe that? I admire Senator Bong Revilla his statement that if truth prevail she must be punished according to the law. I just hope that this poor lass will stand the truth at hindi magpabayad just like others do, to stop discrimination,and abusing one's life.

Here are some tips to avoid acne or pimples in your face:
- wash your face at least two times a day, and for the delicate skin, use a soap a non -soap cleanser, a "mild" or "sensitive skin" gently clean it with your finger in a lukewarm water, and never use a face towel. And if you have an oily skin use a soap with benzoyl peroxide to let it dry.

Goodbye "Daboy"

Rudy "Daboy" Fernandez is one of my favorite actor in our local cinema. I've been his avid fans since he was in his teenage career. He is a good son, brother, husband, father and friends to the people around him. He's been fighting cancer for two years, and i salute his wife and his children supporting him, and always there for him until his last breath. I really feel sad of his death,my heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family.

Thank You!

Thanks to those who hated me, you made me stronger. Thanks to those who loved me, you made my heart grow fonder. Thanks to those who might have envied me, you let my esteem grow stronger. Thanks to those who cared,, you made me feel important. Thanks to those who entered my life, you made me who i am today. Thanks to those who left, you reminded me that nothing lasts forever. Thanks to those who stayed, you showed me true meaning of friendship.

Harmony prayer

Make me, O Lord, a sign of your peace, living a life-in dialogue with you to understand your silence and seek your presence; In dialogue with myself to rediscover the meaning of life; In dialogue with others to move together in harmony with all; and in dialogue with creation to care for the earth. Give me, O Lord the courage to live in dialogue in the midst of divisions and conflicts and to build peace with all people in sincere hearts who believe in your love and compassion. Amen.

Never totally home

I was never totally home maybe it's because earthly life is very short. Earthly things reserved for life, the earthly peace is never possible, also the earthly ambition will surely perished, and most of it's because our earthly rulers were generally corrupt. That's why sometimes I realized that I was never totally home.

Holding on

It's not easy to let go of something you've put everything into. But it's harder to realize later on that you've holding on to something that was'nt there anymore.


Courage comes from within myself, but I don't always act on it. When I do it, it can be very lonely. Acting on our courage makes life worth living, and moments that call for bravery come up in everyday life. There have always been a courageous women involved in politics, but it has taken this long for women to truly be represented throughout the political system. My parents were tremendous sources of inspiration for me. The question is, how I'm going to make things better?

Dinnertime, Family time

All parents say that having a strong family life is important, but because of too many things to do they can't seem to find time to spend with their children. What many parents do not realize is that there is an existing daily routine where family togetherness can be enchanced- the family dinner.
Ignoring the importance of the family meal is a big loss. This special hour is a chance for family members to stay connected. Gathering the table heightens family identity and that sense of belonging

Love Yourself

Loving yourself gives you balance, a healthy perspective in life and confidence in good and difficult times. I've learned to accept the things I'm not good at, as well as be proud of. Take time to stay fit and healthy, take care of how you look, be attuned to your emotions. Reward yourself for your achievements and most importantly, don't be too hard on yourself when things don't turn out the way you want to.

Our life

In things in life are temporary. If the're going well, enjoy! They won't last forever. If they go wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either. What is nice about life is that each day is never like the other. Enjoy life and throw all your troubles away! Smile!

Pressures In Life

If the pressures in life seems like crushing you down, think of a crushed grape that produces best wine. It is just like our life, pressures comes unexpectedly to our life. But we must handle it without hesitation, and that's one thing that makes ourself refined. The pressures we have in life only brings out the best in us.

PC vs. Mac

For the most part, PC and Mac systems are both very good. For the most part, both systems are infuriatingly bad. It really depends on what you are trying to do at a given moment.

God's Promises

God's promises are like stars, the darker the night, the brighter they shine. If God answers your prayer, He is increasing your faith, and if He delays, He is increasing your patience. And if He doesn't answer, He has something better for you. Consistent in praying, He is just up there for you.

I Am Thankful

I even thankful my past relationship was failed, at least I learned to love, and experienced to be loved in return. I treasure the moment that I spent together with someone, even it just lasted for a minute. I am not afraid to fall in and out of love.

I am thankful that I met him. Now I am ready to face the world without hatred and I am somehow smarter in choosing my partner. And now I come to realized how mysterious love is.

A friend make us brave when we are afraid, make us strong when we are weak, but most of all, they teach us to hold on when tears keep on falling.

Friendship is a collection of hearts, ready to give, share and understand, it never fades and never ends, it only minds us life is not perfect without a friend like you.

Heaith Day News

We know that many, many parents rely on TV and video as part of their child's sleep routine. Watching television before bed makes it more difficult for children to fall asleep. It found out that children below three years old that have seen television, there's a big risk that they sleep irregularly. I advise parents that there should be limit amount of TV during the day to less than two hours of screen time, including TV, computer, video games. And don't use TV as a go-to-sleep aid for children.

No Such Thing Is Perfect

Being with someone doesn't guarantee happiness. It doesn't matter how long you've been alone, how long you've hoped, or how long you've waited. There's no such thing as a perfect love story. Heartaches will always be a part of loving. But remember though not perfect, if that love is meant for you, it will stick with you till the end. No matter how tough it gets, no matter how long. Far from perfect but real.

Spread The Gospel

I am a Christian in nature and a Christian in faith. Believing that Jesus Christ was the son of God, He died on the cross for my sins, and he rose again from the dead and ascended in heaven.
As a Christian believer, I think it is our duty to go to church every Sunday, but there are unavoidable time that we could not make it. Our souls needs to be feed by the words of God. It's a good thing that I discovered where you can watch sermons on line. All of the sermons on this site deal with relevant, contemporary topic, and even upload sermons too in which are based firmly in Scripture and can be adapted easily to local situations. Now you don't have an excuse not to hear the words of God, come visit this site, I'm sure you're going to bless the message of God.

The Power Of Prayer

When I got up early in the morning, I make sure of myself that I have time to pray. Problems came heavier each task, God is helping me. I wanted to see joy and beauty, God show it to me. I tried to come into God's presence, without hesitation, God gently and lovingly open the door for me. I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.
