Swine Flu Outbreak

The public is now advised to take extra careful over the endemic Swine flu that first hit Mexico. Here's the news:

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Across Asia, people are closely following the global spread of swine flu from Mexico and preparing for the worst after the World Health Organization raised its alert level for the outbreak.

Authorities in the region have boosted surveillance at airports and hospitals, stockpiled anti-viral drugs and other supplies to fight any outbreaks.

Face masks and anti-viral drugs like Relenza and Tamiflu flew off the shelves from pharmacies in some cities on Tuesday.

"It's really apparent, people have been buying face masks all day," said Cyrus Chan, the boss of a dispensary in Hong Kong's Wanchai bar district who had sold out his entire stock of 10,000 adult face-masks and only had child sizes left.

"Since SARS, this is the second time there's been such a great demand," Chan added, as a steady stream of customers asking for masks were told there wouldn't be any new stocks of adult masks till later.

Davao City's Hotels and Restaurants

I remember the first time I worked for an online business office. The first and challenging task given to me was to research about the different kinds of hotels and restaurants in Davao. I thought of it at first as an easy thing to do since there are online information out there that may make my research easy. But then along the way, I realized that it wasn't that easy. When I had to scout each area where these Davao hotels may be located and figured out myself what they cater. And under the scorching heat of the sun (since I was only commuting to get to the area), I had to work on this task before reaching the deadline that my boss gave me.

Davao has many hotels that are not actually far different from big cities. We have Marco Polo hotel that is just located at the heart of Davao with only 20 minutes travel from the Davao International Airport and Waterfront Insular Hotel that is only 10 to 15mins from the DIA. Actually, these are just two of the very good hotels in Davao as part of my research. There are more hotels even offering very good discount. That didn't took me really long to work for that project and for that office. I have to go back to where my heart belongs. However, after that project, I hope that the amount compensated for me and the sweat I earned during the research paid them all.

It's summer here, for sure a lot tourists will be looking for the best hotel to stay in Davao.

Afraid for Love to Fade

by Jose Mari Chan

my head's in a jam cant take you off my mind
from the time we met i've been beset by thoughts of you
and the more that i ignore this feeling
the more i find my self believin'
that i just have to see you again

i cant let you pass me by
i just cant let you go but i know
that im much too shy to let you know
afraid that i might say the wrong
word and displease you
afraid for love to fade
before it can come true

like a child again
im out and lost for words
how does one define a crush combine with longing
longing to posses oh so dearly
and im obsess with you completely
ill go mad if i cant have you

i cant let you pass me by
i just cant let you go let me say
the things and say the words to let you know
i would rather say the awkward words than loose you
afraid for love to fade
before it can come true

afraid for love to fade
before it can come true...

Best deals for air condition

My nephews are with us during weekends and just last night they were so excited to sleep with us especially when we started to have our air condition on and feel its coolness while we're already off to bed. However, I noticed that they were not content of its coolness that they want to put its coolness into its highest temperature. Maybe because of the weather that we have now since it's summer and it hasn't been raining for quite a while.

It's summer here and it's so humid. The air condition in our room seems to have lost much of its coolness that I think already needs a replacement. While I do not have enough time to look for the best air condition in town, I find that the easiest way to search out of my busy schedule is to look for one online. I've been trying to figure out how to improve the air conditioning system in our room and this one I see online is my best option. I think my search is over!:)

I went through series of trials lately where I have to deal with my patience. Things that seem to be inevitable yet we have to be in control and stay calm in order to hold on still and keep that focus.

Yes, "Patience is truly a virtue".

happy Easter

He has risen!!

HaPPy EAsTer everyone!

touch of nature

I always imagine myself living in a house filled with wooden interiors like that of a rustic furniture . I love nature and having these kinds of stuff around me make me feel like I have always been very closed to nature. I don't know if I am just being influenced by the fairy tales I watched as a child back then where most princesses from the story that I read lived in a wooden house with wooden furniture in it. But ever since then my interest really goes to having furniture with very good carvings and are looking personalized. In my thought of buying a new house, I am very particular with its interior design being etched with wooden objects or anything that would make me feel closed to nature. And so while I am in my search for wooden things that might have a certain touch of classic I found these end tables for my living room very interesting. I wish I c0uld suggest the same thing to my other members of the family and hopefully they'll agree with my taste. (hehe!) Well, I know in my heart that I have good taste with things and I can make my house looking personalized with a look of classics and elegance. And so, maybe one of these days I will have my interior completely designed with wooden furniture just as how I still imagine myself like one of the princesses in fairy tales. :)

"Today is Holy Thursday."

Grant us O Lord

"God, grant us the serenity to ACCEPT the things we cannot change; the COURAGE to change the things we can; and the WISDOM to know the difference."

***this in the observance of the Holy Week.

climate change

The weather here has been very unpredictable in effect to global warming. Even though it's summer but still we are experiencing rain shower and thunderstorm mostly at night time. However, the climate is so humid during day time that it would sometimes reach to 45 degrees. How's that?! Well, some may have thought of going on a vacation now. A relaxing place for a good break from workload and a memorable venue to enjoy with family and friends. But for most devote Catholics, this moment is still a time to reflect in observance for the Lenten season. The Holy week is a very remarkable moment for us Christians as we pay tribute to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His passion and death on earth. Yet, there are still some who would grab this moment as a time to go places and feel a different ambiance the way Arizona real estate could offer. Some may want to get away from the bad weather that they're encountering in their area and figure what's there at the far end of the globe. The changes of weather brought by global warming may result to ill effect especially to our health. And so it's important too that people make ways to alleviate this and make solutions other than enjoying the summer at the beach or outdoor activities.

It's been raining outside now as I write this entry while the weather may be a lot different in Arizona or in some part of the State. The option is yours. You can either go places or stay where you're at.

missing here...

There are just things that I miss doing lately but I have to. I have to miss things to figure out how much they matter. And I have to miss things to give top priority to something else.

I haven't been into blogging and blog hopping for quite awhile (for health reason). Am missing the things I used to do on a regular basis like hearing about people's story around the globe through their blogs and getting to know bloggers (somehow) on a personal level through our exchange of views and opinion in our comment box.

I hope to stay in touch. Soon. I just miss it here.

Take care everyone!:)
