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 …

Cunning moves

Why is everyone grandstanding?

Are they craving for power? Or just simply trying to get noticed?

Tsk Tsk .. crap!

I am hungry of knowledge and thirsty of ingenuity!
And that's all I'm yearning.

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.
