Turning of a Leaf

After reviewing my resolutions plotted for this year (2009), I was thrilled to say that most of them have been met. I am genuinely confident that I could keep my resolutions despite a few inevitable slips. That is because, I am committed to it and I prepared myself to fulfilling it. Yey!

So as we put the holidays behind us and dig out from underneath all of the wrapping paper, it is now time to engage ourselves to this ritual (should I say) of making a New Year’s resolution.

Now why do you think it is necessary for us to create one?

Well based on my own experience, when you create a goal the soonest possible time, it predicts better success in actually achieving it. And of course, being ready to change also helps. If you don’t want to change and so only make a half-hearted resolution to do so, don’t be surprised by your amazing lack of success.

So as we face the New Year – 2010 help me set new (achievable) affirmations ….

I know the power of affirming my truth, over and over, everyday!

A Celebration of Life (LOLA AQUI)

LOLA AQUI was finally laid to rest this afternoon at 3 pm in Siniloan Cemetery.

Our family would like to express our appreciation and heartfelt gratitude to all of our relatives, friends and well-wishers who surrounded us with their love and care during our period of bereavement. We were deeply touched by the numerous calls, visits, prayers and words of encouragement. Your acts of kindness and generosity made our burden more bearable. We thank you from the depth of our hearts.

God knows best and she has found her seat in Heaven next to all those who have past on.

May the soul of our beloved and departed LOLA AQUI rest in eternal peace. We loved her dearly but God’s Love is supreme.

LOLA AQUI, Not a day goes by that you are not thought of. You continue to live in our hearts every second of the day. As you take your rest from this world full of hatred and greed, we can rest assure that you are in a better place. May your home-going bring us to the realization that our times are in God'…

Gain and Lost

The party have just ended ...
It was all fun and I really had a great time. I was with my girl every single minute and that's what I've been yearning for long time now. But I need to cut it short. Hours before the tentative time for the party to end, I left.
It could have been better if I still get to take home a prize (apparently, I won one). However, as my name called, I am nowhere to be found. Not because I want to, it's merely because I have to.
I have to work soon after the party. I only gulped 2 bottles of (light) beer which is so not me. I didn't get the chance to whoop it up since I'd be heading straight to the office. To be honest, I am not supposed to work on Sunday. It's my day-off. But I've decided to cover the earliest shift since the one in charge of it hosts the party and may fail to cover it due to fatigue. I took the risk and yet the consequence of this priority was losing some chances.
I felt awfully bad that my win was voided just becaus…

Dare you to Move!

I have just seen “The Secret Law of Attraction”. And I can vouch that there’s a lot of truth to it. Say for instance, have you ever noticed that when you acted as if people were trustworthy and helpful, they became trustworthy and helpful? Hence, if you acted in ways that signaled you didn’t trust them, they would’ve changed their behaviors accordingly. Your beliefs and actions had a large role in making the state of affairs match them.

Because people are afraid of failing and believe and act as if they will fail, they end up scripting reality to match their beliefs. Hence the important point of learning to become comfortable with failures and mistakes is that you’re less likely, in the end, to make the biggest mistake: to remain steady, dependable, and run-of-the mill. Being remarkable is risky and brings its share of mistakes, but the bigger risk is to sit on the sidelines waiting for the world to give you your chance. Which is never going to happen? I really hate those people who al…

Feast day of St. Jude Thaddeus

Jude was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He is generally identified with Thaddeus, and is also variously called Jude of James, Jude Thaddaeus , Judas Thaddaeus or Lebbaeus. He is sometimes identified with Jude, brother of Jesus, but is clearly distinguished from Judas Iscariot, another disciple and later the betrayer of Jesus.

The Armenian Apostolic Church honours Thaddeus along with Saint Bartholomew as its patron saints. In the Roman Catholic Church he is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes.

Saint Jude's attribute is a club. He is also often shown in icons with a flame around his head. This represents his presence at Pentecost, when he received the Holy Spirit with the other apostles. Occasionally he is represented holding an axe or halberd, as he was brought to death by one of these weapons. In some instances he may be shown with a scroll or a book (the Epistle of Jude) or holding a carpenter's rule.

Braces ... At last

I just had my ortho braces installed an hour ago. And guess what? I already swallowed one bracket! Damn! I never thought that it’s going to be this tough. This is so distressing!

Worst is that I am told to have mouth sores for about 3 days! I hate it! Anyways, as they say, “No Pain, No Gain.” So I guess I have to bear this uneasiness for a year or less. As if I have a choice.

Thanks to my couple dentist, Doc Ponch and his gorgeous wife, Doc Yet for taking care of my teeth! I’ve never visited a dentist for more than 15 yrs now and having me convinced is something I should be thankful for.

It's a day of selfless action, not quid pro quo. Good karma is on its way!

My Fair Share of (Bad) Luck

After all the laughter and the delightful musings, in just a swift blow everything was just taken away! Leaving me bewildered and confused, asking myself, "What just happened?" ... yeah, still now, I can't believe I just had to endure setbacks worse than I am equipped to and I'd like to believe that my life is down to the vagaries of luck.

Subsequent to Typhoon Ondoy which deserted me with empty room, ruined clothes, trashed furniture and gadgets; here I am battling the curse of losing more. I have just lost my purse with ALL my bank savings and ATM card in it. Yes, I am broke big time! I don't have decent clothes to wear, smothered of my lifestyle, robbed of my vanity and flip sided back to zilch. And I fervently hope that this hard luck evens out whatever wrongful or karmic actions I've caused malevolent to others (if there is). I refuse to submit passively to anything coming whatsoever for I am not complaining. Although, part of me says I don't deserve …

Pepeng threatens to become super typhoon (SOS!)

Just a few few days ago, the Philippines was hit by Typhoon Ondoy. In it's after math, over 40,000 people have lost their homes and over 200 people have lost their lives. Even as the shock subsides and people sift through the debris and reunite with loved ones, and morn the deceased, meteorologists are monitoring another typhoon that may hit the Philippines.

Typhoon "Pepeng" is currently gaining strength and threatens to turn into a Super Typhoon. A severe typhoon has winds off at least 80 knot (95 mph, 150 km/h) while a super typhoon has winds of at least 100 knot (115 mph, 185 km/h).

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Typhoon Pepeng (PARMA) with winds of 150 -185 kph is making its way towards the Philippines. Latest reports say that the storm is east of Borogan, Eastern Samar and is moving West Northwest. PAGASA expects that the storm will head towards Northern Luzon and Taiwan. Pepeng is the 16th tr…

Palawan Adventure: El Nido ~ The Sun and the Sea

On our first day in Palawan, we went Island hopping to discover the limestone islands looming around El Nido interspersed with some snorkeling. We've seen Twin Rocks, Miniloc Lagoons, Entalula Island, Shimizu Beach and 7 Commandos Beach, although we were not able to hop between the islands due to time constraint.


I personally enjoyed best our trip to the secret lagoon. This can be reached by bangca up to the entrance in a low cliff. We had to swim through a rock opening to get to the beach. And inside is very shallow but with fantastic corals. This is where I got most of my cuts and scratches. But if you snorkel at the opening, you'll see lots of fishes (Nemo!). However, this could be hard because the current will push you out of it. Cool! Once inside, you'll be in a secret world, enclosed by black marble walls and covered in thick exotic flora. This cliff-lined world is totally quiet, the tranquil serenity inside broken only by the sounds of birds and cicadas. You need …

Palawan Adventure

Yey! Tomorrow, I'll be in Palawan for a well-deserved getaway!


I am overly excited for this trip.

So finally, I am getting to ride an airplane for the first time! Haha ... I've been anticipating for this moment 2 months now. Yet I am not stressing over the possible things that could happen. I am up for everything! Just get it on!

Drunkard Geekness

Damn! I'm back to my old vices ..

Drinking ... Binge Eating ... and 10 hrs Feverish Sleeping



and when I drink, it's like a lot! and I won't stop till i'm crazed.
The same predicament goes with smokers. Good thing I managed to quit with this thing.



I gained 9 lbs in 2 weeks and too bad that it's all hoarded in my midsection.

In GOD We TRUST

If all you had to do was wish for something and you would have it, life would be pretty boring, wouldn't it? God placed barriers between us and what we want, so we can enjoy interesting and satisfying lives. God hid our biggest rewards behind the highest barriers - our deepest fears. God wants us to face our fears, and hold ground in their presence, and let them go, and that's how we get out biggest rewards. What are you most afraid of? Say it, just start by saying it.

Ber Months

We only have 4 months left of 2009. We have to make the most out of it.

You Gossipmonger!

I wanted to share with you an excerpt from a transcript in a film starred by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep entitled DOUBT. This is a sermon about gossip and how it can impact life and cannot be undone. Here is the scene:

A woman was gossiping with a friend about a man she hardly knew – I know none of you have ever done this – that night she had a dream. A great hand appeared over her and pointed down at her. She was immediately seized with an overwhelming sense of guilt. The next day she went to confession. She got the old parish priest, Father O’Rourke, and she told him the whole thing.

‘Is gossiping a sin?’ she asked the old man. ‘Was that the hand of God Almighty pointing a finger at me? Should I be asking your absolution? Father, tell me, have I done something wrong?’

‘Yes!’ Father O’Rourke answered her. ‘Yes, you ignorant, badly broughtup female! You have borne false witness against your neighbor, you have played fast and loose with his reputation, and you should be hearti…

Goal Setting

I spent some time thinking over what is it I value and evaluating the goals I have set. I am excited to begin this journey with a clear picture in my head of what I want my achievements to be. My goals can be classified as both professional and personal or as long-term and short-term. There is an overlap and continuity of objectives necessary for my goals to be successful. Each of these goals leads to achieving a sense of success and satisfaction. Due to the completeness in my goal setting process, I realized that satisfaction is reachable even if success is not achievable. My intent is to concentrate on professional goals using my short-term goals to support and work toward fulfilling my long-term goals.

Professionally it is my intent to obtain employment with a multi-national company. Further it is my intention to complete my studies with an eye towards completing another curriculum for MA in Psychology with a Major in Industrial/Organizational Psychology.

Here are my goals as segmen…

My fond farewell to Tita Cory

One of the perks of working here in the heart of Makati is to witness historical events be staged along the road. Never did I expect that to start it off, it was the Aquino cortege that I have to behold. I was then 2 years old when “People Power” demonstration took over the streets of Manila and I apathetically sleep instead of walking my way to EDSA (since I lived along Ortigas) to take part of what they called “People Power 2"in 2001. Now, I was among the crowd to honor the passing of former President Corazon “Cory” Aquino, who by this time captured my heart, the hearts of every Filipinos, by keeping democracy alive in our beloved country.

As I went outside the TEC tower, I was amazed by the number of people standing still along the street fervently anticipating for Aquino’s convoy to pass. Not only that, more and more employees left their offices rushing out to join the growing number of crowd converged along Ninoy Aquino’s monument. Most of them, if not wearing yellow themed s…

Losing a friend

What happened tonight was a complete mess. It was my fault and I do feel sorry for it somehow looked like as if I used you. I never thought of you anything but a friend to me, and I had it clear even from the very first time we spoke. I pushed my limit by challenging you and making you fall to my bait for the sole intent of knowing you are different from them. My cynical and suspicious thoughts took over and that complicates everything. I never rejected you for I have no reason to. And knowing I made you felt that way have me spent a good deal of time thinking about how I've wronged you. I thought that things were getting a bit out of proportion. Again, I want to let you know how sorry I am.

You probably are right. We are of different worlds.
Still and all, I will be here for you.

Thanks for the times ... the minus and the plus.

Corazon Aquino Passed Away at 76

Former President Corazon Aquino has passed away ay 3:18 am, Saturday at the Makati Medical Center.

She was 76.

Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confimed that she died of cardio respiratory arrest.

Mrs. Corazon Aquino, known as Cory was the widow of the late Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2008.

-------------------------------------------------
Corazon C. Aquino


To the world, she is the widow in yellow who toppled a dictatorship in a stirring show of People Power in 1986. To her native Philippines, she is the courageous president who saw off a series of coups d’etat and single-mindedly restored the institutions of democracy. But to herself, Corazon C. Aquino is a plain housewife who, in all conscience, could not refuse her country’s call to service when her husband, former senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., was assassinated in 1983. She continues to serve after her term of office ended in 1992 through her work with nongovernmental organizations. …

Carly

Take care! Garnier!
And yippee!

Swine Flu? I almost freaked out!

I may sound silly but I thought I got it.

I woke up half past 1 in the morning today. I experienced chills so I stripped my bed and enwrap myself with sheets, blankets and pillow cases. I then curled up to sleep in a foetus position. Bothered with headache and tonsilitis as well. Crap! I felt so tired even if I slept for almost 11 hours.

I still can get up to bed so probably it's just a common cold. (A bit thankful! Relieved!)

Still I went to the office cuz it's like a second home to me. I may not feel well but the cozy environment and warm people makes me feel better!

Thanks to all those who wish me well!

Define Weird?

Grrr!

For Hell's sake, I have to deal my everyday life with uncanny people. I am much better off alone. And I'm more than willing to endure all tasks by myself and cover hours of more stays than dealing with bizarre classmates. Imagine me now studying with headset fully compacted in my ear and the sounds in full blast so as not to be bothered by their rants and loud whinings! I'm trying to contain myself. One of them is a Poser King who tends to always cloud conversation with overly exaggerated make-believes. The other, a Keen Observer who backstabs and drags you when the situation calls for it. Adding up to it, both have psychological defects!

I just can't handle it! Save me!

Annual Physical Examination

Earlier today, we had our annual physical examination. I've been working for 5 years and this is my first time to be emotionally (?cuz I hate it) equipped to undergo ALL steps (I always skipped one or two). Perhaps, that came with getting old. I hate finding out that my blood pressure is ridiculously high and it fluctuates in half an hour. Luckily, my vision equity is normal - 20/20. Nonetheless, still I hate finding out what’s wrong with me. That means I have to deal with them and overall, I hate the process!
When I was already inside the physical exam room, queueing with my colleagues, I was both dreading and hoping that the doctor to violate me should be old. 'Cuz if not, say a young sexy nurse or a foxy doctor (like my cousin) it'll be hard to keep my souljaboy down and evade an epic boner moment. (It happened before). Good thing that there's an old fat guy with sunglasses (he probably has blurred vision, haha) to watch me strip naked. I take pride for doing this a…

Ton's 25th Birthday

I was late in the office by hours!

Oh my ... I came all the way from SM The Block after a date with Tia Baby and the Birthday Boy - Kuya Ton. It was all fun ('cuz it's a treat! peace Ton!) Well, more than that is the bonding we've had after about less than a decade of not having that awesome threesome date. It's Ton's post-birthday celebration, his 25th.

Just night before, we all (the family) felt bloated cuz the food was an overload. We all made an effort to please the celebrant. Tia Baby prepared the traditional pansit (for long life) and her signature crispy fried chicken. And how can it be all without cake and ice creams ... (yes, with an "s") since I also bought my share of Double Dutch (after failing to find Coffee Crumble - our fave). As soon as I got home by 9:30, we had our dinner without the celebrant (same as what happened to my own bash). We avidly enjoyed the food to the last piece. After an hour, there comes the birthday boy with a LARGE Sba…

Five Finger Prayer

This is so neat. I had never heard this before. This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.


1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a 'sweet duty.'

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for t…

Michael Jackson's Controversial Last Photo

Not until I saw this picture when I was completely convinced that the King of Pop is dead.

This controversial photo was reported to have cost the publisher a stunning amount of $ 500,000.00.

Officials also released the King's Death Certificate although some information (e.g. cause of death) are deferred since the results of his official autopsy (toxicology) are still on hold.

Michael Jackson Memorial Live Stream

Free Videos by Ustream.TV
On Tuesday, July 7th at 10:00 AM PT, there will be a memorial for the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson(), at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The response has been huge: 1.6 million people signed up for just 17,500 tickets. Luckily, you do not have to be there in person to pay tribute to Jackson’s memory, as there will be multiple live streams of the event on the web.

They'll be streaming it live over at http://jjpeg.com/watch28015.html and there will be a download available afterward at http://jjpeg.com/file2018451.html so you can keep a memory of it. For now, though, the site is just streaming re-runs of Michael Jackson performances :)



Could this be a sign?

My allergic rhinitis and LPRD was triggered after a series of non-stop binge eating for a week and exposure to polluted air here in the big city. I am once again severely bothered by cough and sore throat. I'm just crossing fingers to not suffer from acid reflux and heart burns. This disorder is killing me!

What's worrysome is this strange pop up advertisement while I do some research. I am not clicking on anything for my browser to direct me to this link. Here it goes:

Once there was a way to get back home

And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise

And I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitation
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

Yeah, all right!
Are you gonna be in my dreams, tonight?

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make


You will always be remembered in our hearts ...
We LOVE you Tio Fred!
Till we meet again

Slipping away

Some good things never last ...

Dare you to move!

As of this time, I still can’t figure out why I have a feeling of slowly drawing myself into a downward spiral of professional suicide. I had the same sentiment during my first week in my first job 5 years ago. And for 5 consecutive years, I’ve already proven myself dexterously proficient both in and out field work. Now, I’m back to where I started, resting in my comfort zone. Why am I unsatisfied of what I have now? Or what I’ve become?

There’s a lot more of me that need to be challenged and I have yet to vanquish over the mediocre life I’m at. I dare myself to move and I am now equipping myself to conquer new heights. For years, I’ve been imprisoned by doubts, hesitations and my fear of failure. At the age of 25, (yes, I am now quarter of a hundred, and probably half of my earth years) I must say I’ve gained enough experiences to be bold enough to face my fears. I’ve had all those moments of being rebuffed by a horde of overwhelming thoughts and emotions and left me cold dead in tra…

Happy Father's Day, Dad!

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

~~Author Unknown.~~

to the BEST DAD in the World ...
PINSP Reynaldo Zamora Jamon
Happy Father's Day!

Sincerest greetings goes also to Tito Fred, Tito Henry, Tito Arman, Tio Adriel and soon to be dad, Berto!


I need a life!

I apologize for not being able to update this blog for a while. I've been trying to consolidate thoughts that could perhaps be of your interest too. However, still mine is incoherent. I've been stucked in a freezer (office) for so long now and I think my brain froze too.

Just a notable happening last week:

June 10, Anti-CON-ASS rally

... leaving me no choice but to walk my way home. I had to pass through 6 malls and do some transit hoppings. Exposed myself to the suffocating smell of commuters. I almost got asphyxiated inside the train. Hell!

This is it for now. I am living a humdrum existence and I'm facing it in a wayward behavior.

Here I am again! ;(

Numb

And then suddenly …

Wandering through life is never easy.

After undergoing through lots of tribulations that almost collapse my world,

I dreadfully found my self in a wholly sundry shape.

I am continuously loosing myself as a result of the frenzied and frantic undertakings of the world.

I refute to succumb to the truth that I am not affected at all. That I will always be me no matter what.

And then suddenly, in haste, I gone astray …

deaf of knowledge,

blind of truth,

immobilize of goodwill,

numb of compassion … I’m jaded.

Swine Flu Scare leads to Zombie Mutations! WTF?!

Swine Flu to Zombie Flu!?

I found a terribly horrifying news and should really make everyone cautious to anyone who has a flu or even simple colds (exclude me 'cuz I've been bothered with sore throat for years now). Very scary… NOT! Haha ... It really made me chuckle!

There's a buzz of a small outbreak of Zombism in London due to mutation of A(H1N1) virus into new strain: H1Z1. (What now?)

It was told that victims of a new strain of the swine flu virus H1N1 have been reported in London is similar to that of the scare found in Cambodia before.

After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.” Just imagine Will Smith's "I am Legend".

Have you NO SHAME?

To the Members of the House who sponsored HR 1109

We write this letter in the knowledge that within our inalienable right to free speech, we have the right to condemn, to dissent, and to express. We believe that dissent and disagreement - as well as anger - is warranted for the events of June 2, 2009, where 170 Representatives sponsored and passed a ruthless, rude, and repugnant resolution that fuels our rage.

On that night, you held a marathon session to pass House Resolution 1109. The House majority have passed the resolution to set up a constituent assembly to open up the Constitution to changes that endanger Philippine sovereignty, and the rights and liberties, granted to us in this country. The possibility of “Gloria Forever” haunted a sleeping nation. The House overstepped its bounds in a claim to power, and to usurp the present decay of political institutions of this nation.

The resolution was rammed through, railroaded, and passed without regard to objection and without respe…

“ It has been 4 months since my resignation from work and even up to this time, I am still subdued to rubbish heavens.

In retrospect, I found myself stuck in a passive and non-existent milieu … I still don’t know where I’m at and why I’m there.

Slowly, I am loosing my worth.

This is completely not me. And I hate myself for not even recognizing it, justly.
I’ve done things not of my own will and accord, abused and loathe my soul.

Mimicked and pretended I’m superbly well, flouted what I feel inside … peculiarly different from the voices within and the thoughts concealed in to vindicate this burlesque delineation of psychosomatic struggle inside.

Flores de Mayo and Santacruzan

Flores de Mayo is a Catholic festival held in the Philippines in the month of May. It lasts for a month, and is held in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Santa Cruzan is a parade held on the last day of Flores de Mayo in honor of Reyna Elena.



Flores, from the Spanish word for "flowers," also known as Flores de Mayo (Flowers of May), Flores de Maria (flowers of Mary) or alay (offering), may refer to the whole Flower Festival celebrated in the month of May in honor of the Virgin Mary .


Sagala
A Sagala is a religious-historical beauty pageant held in many cities, towns and even in small communities throughout the Philippines during the month of May. One of the most colorful May-time festivals in the Philippines which depicts the finding of the Holy Cross by Queen Helena, mother of Constantine the Great. Many movie and television personalities participate in the events and are featured as major sagalas and escorts. This festival was introduced by the Spaniards in the Philippines and ha…
