i am

"I think, therefore I am", according to Rene Descartes.

I have always been feeling so lousy when talking about defining myself. If you notice my profile. Not that I am much too reserved as a person. Just that I prefer people around me esp. those who know me best to be the ones who'll tell me how I am as an existent being. I guess, what I can only afford to tell is that I am capable of something that "somehow" will make me equal to what God wants me to be. Well, sounds vague though. Please for those who find my idea unclear, "i apologize for that". (Tao lang!hehe!)

Well, what I only mean is that, "I can't tell exactly in words who I am, but my attempt to write about life here in general will, perhaps. People may find it weird but this is how I feel when you ask about me. However, I hope one day I will have my own popularize line like that of Descartes. Maybe then, it will exactly define me :)

I miss my phone

This is my favorite shot of Samal Island in Davao del Norte. Got this shot through my old Nokia phone, now no longer functioning. Hayyzz!I miss that phone. I always get good shots using it. It had been with me through all the times when I needed to capture moments. I guess it's true that you will only learn the value of one thing once it's gone. I wish I can avail another good phone like my old one some time before the year ends.

First day high...

October 1 is declared non-working holiday in observance of the end of Ramadan for our Muslim brothers.

I remember when I was still a student. I felt like holiday is the most important day of my life..haha! I think even to some, they feel the same way. When the teacher would declare that there will be no classes, the whole class would really shout for joy. And then we'd have get together during holiday with the 'barkada' as if it's the last day of our life. I still smile each I remember my high school days. When life just seemed too simple. Even when I was always first in line during exam days to the school registrar's office bringing with me promissory note inorder to take the exam. hayyzzz! high school life talaga..nakakamiss kahit papano.

Though I have best friends from high school whom I still get to see sometimes, of course this time the 'get together' we once had is no longer as often as we wanted to. We now have priorities of our own like jobs and family. Life is like that, "you can't hold on to people and memories..all eventually come and go..but you just have to look back and cherish them."

Christmas countdown is on the airwave

wowww!the clock is ticking so fast. 92 days to go before hitting Christmas. now i've been thinking what i could possibly offer for my godchildren or magtatago ako!hehe! it's their day!kapag pasko talaga ang mga bata di mo matatawaran ang tuwa lalo't nakakatanggap ng gifts. well, Christmas is for everyone. let's not limit this occasion to children alone. but even though the holiday rush is yet to come, i think am starting to see joy each time i hear people starting to make Christmas countdown. i dont know if the holiday still excites some, but as for me, i feel like Christmas is the very time i see people in their best smile esp. when reunions with long lost relatives, family members, or even acquintances come.

i really do hope that we'll still see joy and magic about the holiday even though crisis is hitting in every corner. Godbless everyone! may we see hope in every day to find real meaning in life.

Thanks Pchi!

I am personally extending my gratitude to my fellow bisaya blogger Pchi for this really awesome award. Though this response is quite late, want you to know that I never forget. Thank you my friend!

My country's tomorrow

I do not possess any extraordinary power to foretell the future. I am not even good at predicting things. But as I see it now, I am starting to fear my country's tomorrow if I will have to envision it from how it is running today. Skilled workers are continually working and living abroad while the Philippines is left with amateur ones. I am starting to fear our shortage of medical practitioners esp. doctors and nurses. Nursing schools have been cropping up everywhere to cater numerous students who want to take up nursing ( for a single reason- to go abroad). We trained our students so well in the medical profession only to find out that they are prepared not for this country's future generation but for the foreign lands. This is not about being patriotic or nationalistic. This is about getting into the realization that we have become even poorer and will soon be the poorest with our resources in terms of workers.

We all practically would want to work abroad to alleviate poverty. However, I still wish that our government will work on the issue that my country is already suffering from shortage of skilled workers esp. in the medical profession and even teachers. If the continuing stream of sending workers abroad will not be controlled, I wonder what best will be left for my country's tomorrow in the next ten or twenty years?

5 essential weight loss foods

Found this interesting article from Dr. Mao for all health conscious individuals out there. As we all know that "health is wealth", may these tips help you in achieving a good and healthy diet.

1. Millet: A well-balanced diet should consist of whole grains instead of refined grains like white rice and pasta, and millet is a beneficial and delicious staple of this category of food. This non-glutinous grain is over 10-percent protein, has high amounts of fiber and B-complex vitamins, and because it isn't an acid forming food, is easy to digest.

2. Asparagus: When losing weight, it's important to favor chlorophyll-rich foods, including asparagus. Asparagus is a nutrient-rich vegetable packed with folate, vitamins A, C, and K, and fiber. Asparagus also contains a carbohydrate known as inulin (not to be confused with insulin) that promotes healthy bacteria in the large intestine - which in turn promotes a healthier digestive function.

3. Pomegranates: Eating a balanced diet to lose weight should include eating fresh fruits, and pomegranates are a wonderful example of a healthy, nutritious fruit that has antioxidant properties and will help prevent cancer. While the benefits of drinking pomegranate juice have gained a lot of attention recently, you will be more likely to lose weight by eating the fruit fresh to increase your fiber intake and keep the calories down.

4. Pine Nuts: Pine nuts are the edible seeds of pine trees and are considered an essential ingredient in the tasty Italian mixture pesto. Chinese medicine uses pine nuts to improve gastrointestinal tract and digestive functions, and pine nut oil is even used for appetite suppression. Pine nuts and other nuts are a tasty part of a well-balanced diet intended for weight loss.

5. Green Tea: It has been found that consuming large amounts of coffee and caffeine can lead to food cravings, increase one's appetite, and induce stress-related eating. Green tea is a wonderful alternative to coffee in that it does provide a little caffeine but also contains beneficial antioxidants. So drink up!

***On thing more to complete a balance lifestyle- don't forget to make exercise part of your routine. I think an hour to sweat around would be enough to have your blood in good circulation and help release excess fats in your body. Have a healthy and smiley day ahead!:-)

Out in the field

It's good to be home again.

In the daily hush of life, from waking up in the morning to taking our meal, up to being on call for work, I realized that somehow we are a lot like soldiers who are out in the field to face our own battles. It's a call for duty, we may say. But the duty is not only to keep us awake and earn a living inorder to survive. Because if we only see life as such, then I see us as nothing but just like ants whose existence is just all about survival. We all need more than the meals we set on our table. We need the time to be with our family, loved ones and friends. In other words, we need each other to complete each other as human.

Well, why am I saying this? For some times I was out from the blogosphere to attend things I must. I don't mean survival alone but the moments to keep things in balance. Just as there is a time to speak while its important that we keep the time too to listen. Being out from blogging was like being out to face my battle. Now being back into blogging is simply giving me the joy to be back home again. I miss this... but most of all.. I miss everyone! :-)

the unemployed graduate

An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his pocket. All he had left was $10. He decided to use it to buy food and then wait for death as he was too proud to go begging. He was frustrated as he could find no job, and nobody was ready to help him. He bought food and as he sat down to eat, an old man and two little children came along and asked him to help them with food as they had not eaten for almost a week.. He looked at them. They were so lean that he could see their bones coming out. Their eyes had gone into the socket. With the last bit of compassion he had, he gave them the food. The old man and children prayed that God would bless and prosper him and then gave him a very old coin. The young graduate said to them 'you need the prayer more than I do'.

With no money, no job, no food, the young graduate went under the bridge to rest and wait for death. As he was about to sleep, he saw an old newspaper on the ground. He picked it up, and suddenly he saw an advertisement for people with old coins to come to a certain address.

He decided to go there with the old coin the old man gave him. On getting to the place, he gave the proprietor the coin. The proprietor screamed, brought out a big book and showed the young gr aduate a photograph. This same old coin was worth 3 million dollars. The young graduate was overjoyed as the proprietor gave him a bank draft for 3 million dollars within an hour. He collected the Bank Draft and went in search of the old man and little children.

By the time he got to where he left them eating, they had gone. He asked the owner of the canteen if he knew them. He said no but they left a note for you. He quickly opened the note thinking it would lead him to find them.

This is what the note said: 'You gave us your all and we have rewarded you back with the coin,' signed God the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.
***wonderful lesson and realization.

keep posted

I haven't been on for quite awhile for some personal and important reasons. And these are the moments when we have to decide how to put things into better perspective inspite of the busyness. However then, seems to me that blogging has already gotten into my nerve. And I couldn't help but keep myself updated with what's new.

I cannot think of right materials to keep posted as of the moment. My mind is currently a "blank sheet"..but I know it's still good to be at least back on my feet again. Life is like that. There are toss and turns. To let the daily hush of life penetrate you, however still able to keep into balance. Woooh!feels like am too way serious.haha!

I miss you all fellow bloggers...hope time will grant me more space to hop and visit your sites and share with your thoughts soon! take care everyone.:-)

What is Ramadan for the Muslims?

"The name "Ramadan" is the name of the ninth month. The word itself derived from an Arabic word *rmd as in "ramida" or "ar-ramad" denoting intense heat, scorched ground, and shortness of rations. It is considered the most venerated and blessed month of the Islamic year. Prayers, *sawm (fasting), charity, and self-accountability are especially stressed at this time. Religious observances associated with Ramadan are kept throughout the month. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims do not eat or drink anything from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the person patience and humility. It is a time to fast for the sake of God, and to offer even more prayer than usual. In Ramadan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance into the future, ask for help in refrain from everyday evils and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds." (source: wikipedia.com).

In light of this month's observance of Ramadan, may our Muslim brothers even put to practice what the Islamic teachings are deeply rooted into in view of their search for genuine peace.

Though am a borne Catholic, my deep respect for others' religion remains intact. I remain hopeful that inspite of our differences in beliefs or ideals, may we be united into reaching one common goal- and that is PEACE.

This blogging thing

I am not good in manipulating objects that repond to the evolution of high technology. My field of work is far from what we now call "modernization". In fact, I am already adept to using manuals that are already obsolete when compared to what are used in this present time. Once before, I was only content and happy to write my thoughts in an old used notebook as my diary. Now who would thought that my journaling of my personal encounters in life would be elevated by the technology of today?

Let's just say " i just stumbled one day into this blogging thing". One morning I woke up already having my own PC when once upon a time, I only long to have my own typewriter(haha!). Simple goal but God is so good and His blessings are simply overflowing. And though this time, the whole world knows what are in my thoughts and yet I still see joy in the package of it all by knowing new friends and different personalities in the world wide web. And that what a big supermarket actually there is that the world can offer. Thanks to great personalities I now know and the more wonderful people I will know in this blogging thing.

Enjoy your hop!:D
