where is amor, anyway?

you might be wondering where the hell i've been the past days...
i just disappeared from everybody's life...

well yes, i've been alone most of the time...
alone not in the sense that i'm away from everybody...
it's just that i have my own world even when everybody's around..

well, i guess it's time for me to tell stories about it..
here's what keeps me away from everybody...

1) WORK - i was busy preparing for the 2009 budget for my department. my boss says it was
easy. yes, it was that even a highschool student could do that. the problem is that my
department has a lot of items in many accounts... and explaining it eats a lot of my time. my
offices often teases me that i no longer exist. i was physically there but i was not talking to
them. i'm sorry.. i just don't want to be distracted. it's a critical thing... if i miss one digit or
mistakenly hit the wrong number key(especially for the higher digit), it'll be a mess... i started
working on it 2 months ago. i get the pressure the most when it's almost review time... and i
get the stress when it's not yet over... i mean the whole budget time... until it's final.. i cannot
help thinking if it's already enough or whether my explanation is convincing...

2) PARTIES - it's christmas time... lots of parties... friends', organizations', department's,
company's, and some invitations...

3) PHOTO OPS - still connected with christmas events... i am into photography and lots of places
to shoot. got invitations from different hobbyists like me... few days ago, i've met 3 indios, my
flickr group... then next week, i'd be having a night shoot with few friends who're also into
photography... btw, please visit my flickr photostream...

4) GETAWAYS - since i've been busy, i grab every free time i have... i go somewhere to relax on
weekends or at night with different companies... or sometimes i just brin myself to

5) MALLING - the past days was a rush... my officemates and i have to rush to malls for
christmas stuffs... just like other people... for the parties, gifts and etc... i will be out again
tomorrow with my sister... we have to look for a good present for pa & ma...

that's it... i don't know...
i still had other activies which were lighter...
and cold no longer remember...
but the 5 were the main reasons why i have been away for weeks...
definitely, i'd be away again mid next week...
and this time, it'll be relaxing...
fresh air again...
my old room..
my home...
i'll be home for new year... YES!

i'm just busy right now...

After an India met an India a few months ago, another Indio set his feet in Davao to meet the beautiful indias last December 9, 2008.I had fun. Everybody has stories to tell and Ate JoLiz is correct - a night is not enough. Anyways, it was nice to meet you, guys. I hope we could meet some other time.

Kuya Jobar, thanks for the freebies... ;)

Nothing Impossible When You Have a Good Heart

there's nothing impossible if you have a good heart...
just like everything's possible with God...
for what we do to our brethren is what we do to Him...

i talked to a kababayan last night...
she buzzed me asking me how i am...
we were exchanging news...
we only had a short chat though...

she was asking me what am i planning for christmas...
i just told her that i'd be spending it with my family...
and will spend my new year in our province...

what she was pointing out was...
if i & some friends would still be doing a simple gift giving just like last christmas...
i told her it's no longer definite...
if the fund is enough and if others are still willing...
i can't do it alone...
she wanted to extend some help..

now i get it...
last year, she in her mid 30's & Alex (her husband older than her) did everything to have a baby...
yeah, i remembered she gave support to our gift giving last year...
they're already hopeless that is why they are supporting programs for kids...
and now, she's pregnant and will be due on January...

God gave them a child!
everything's really possible when you have a good heart...
just trust in God...
do good things without asking for return...
and God will provide you anything... only in His time..
just be patient...

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Fighting Cancer

I received this forwarded email just this afternoon and I wanted to share this thing to you no matter who you are to me. And I don't really know how true this article is but who knows? Right? And it won't do you any harm anyways if you read this.... So here's the article...

This is a long report, but very important to all of us.

Cancer Update from John Hopkins

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard Tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment,
it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they
have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce
tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result
in more tumor destruction.

9 When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and
radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence
the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


A. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one
important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet,
Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural
substitute would be Manuka
honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.
Table salt has a chemical
added to make it white in color. Better
alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea

B. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

C. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic
and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat
also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are
all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

D. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds,
nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About
20% can
be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide
live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within
15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live
enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a
day. Enzymes are destroyed at
Temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

E. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.Green tea
is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink
purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap
water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness
put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercise daily and deepbreathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.

Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from
the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital (Hawaii), was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramiccontainers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin.

So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed
from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heatcauses poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.

Again, this is just a forwarded email shared to you, my readers.....

When I woke up early this morning, the first things that my eyes saw were the sheets of paper clipped together, hanging in one side of my computer rack. I tried to scan them and they were the collection of articles and poems I've been looking for months ago....

While I went through with the articles, a newspaper cutout caught my attention. There's a poem written that says:

if i can fill your eyes with pleasure just by holding
if i can make you feel happy just by the things i do..
if i can fufill your dreams and make your wishes come
if i can give you the world that i would do..
if i can make you laugh by just being there..
if i can make your feel complete knowing that i care..
if i can make you feel special just by the love i could
if i can protect you from all hurts all the pain i will
if i can make you feel assured knowing you have my
if i can make you feel fulfilled knowing you have my
if i can make you feel secure we won't ever part..
that i would do straight from my heart...
if i can give you everything you need and make you feel
if i can give you eternity i'd do that herculean feat..
if i can give you everything you need..
i'd do that for you - - - then i'd feel complete...
This was one of the poems I collected, written by a student of UAP, Cherrie Chua...
Ala lang... just shared it coz ... ala lang ... hehehehe...
ingats kayo... medyo nakaluwag lang ng konti...
have a great weekend....

who says i'm no more kid?

ala lang. i was just asking myself.
because until now, i could see the child in me...
especially when i'm with my mom...
or sometimes when i'm with my sis...

with the way i was disciplined by my parents,
i would say i became mature at an early age...
i became emotionally independent & responsible for my actions...

i am serious most of the time...
or when i'm working on something...
but who says, there's no more child in me?

well, the truth is that i still have a child in me...
i cry... i laugh... i joke... i play...
i think... i act... i dress...
all of ém like a child...
i still wear sneakers... i love wearing sneakers...
i still play nintendo when i no longer have options to do away with boredom...
i watch tom & jerry or tweety when i really want to laugh...
i talk to my mom like a little girl telling stories about what happened the whole day...
i still go for a walk with my dad like the way we used to do when i was in grade school...
i still fight with my sister just the way we fought when we're kids (we fight and in few minutes we're okay and we just laugh)...
i still fight with my brother and make it last for a day....
i still talk to friends and laugh while tickling each other...
i still have kilig moments with friends & cousins when talking about boys...

now, tell me... is there no more kid in me? LOL

I Feel Safe When I'm in Uniform

i was in a puj passing by the other building of the company where i currently work when a big truck came. honk! honk! it was a company's truck. the people inside - they recognized me. but i don't know their names. we recognized each other as employees of same company. we recognized the spiti of being a kaibigan.

kaibigan - it is how we call every regular employee in the company where i currently work. every employee under probation should undergo the kaibigan team building program. it is a program where one could build trust with the other. there are a lot of activities - the rope course, a trust fall, and other activities that could develop teamwork and bond among strangers.

i feel safe when i'm in uniform because my kaibigans could recognize me. at least my face and the uniform. we recognize each other... i am not afraid to walk alone somewhere in the city (in uniform) because kaibigans are everywhere - inside the workplace or anywhere around the city.

i used to be uncomfortable with my uniform but i realized that one reason i should be proud to wear it is that, it gives me security.

i'm early but i'm sleepy. i was numb early this morning when i woke up at 3am. i couldn't get myself back to sleep so i braced myself infront of my computer and did some browsing and blogging. until time to prepare for work. ouch! i forgot i only have two hours of sleep. my! i hope i could make it until 5pm at work.

i came to work early but not as early as yesterday. as i've said, i was numb earlier. while i was accessing my computer, i felt something in my thumb. it hurts. i looked at it and oh my! it's a cut but i'm not aware where did i get it. numb earlier... lol

at least am starting to feel now...

I Feel Good

am in at 7:06AM (same as yesterday).

i feel good right now. i hope it's a good start and will last 'till midnight. lol.

despite that i get insomnia between my sleeps, i still managed to wake up early and brought myself to where i am now. well, woke up early because my parents left for the province early.

what else should i say? ehehehe...

hmmm... my night wasn't good. i felt a bit bored with my routine... a bit bored with the internet... i don't know. i didn't find it colorful. why(here's this question again)? well, i don't really know. what i did was playing poker in my facebook. that was all night until my eyes shut. then, every hour or two, i woke up trying to sleep again. gibali-bali na nako akong position. akong ulo naa na sa tiilan while akong tiil naa na sa ulohan nako... bwahahaha... i guess i must really be bothered about something... hay naku!

pero i feel good right now. i just brought a coffee with me para naa ko pang pares sa katulgon... hehehe... i just hope today will be a very very busy day para malingaw ko ug ayo... hehehehe...

start your day right, everyone!

Bad Dreams

I'm early today! 7:06AM, I'm in!

I've been having bad dreams since yesterday. Not that I saw scary people in my dreams but all of ém aren't good. They're not nightmares though.

I dreamt that I was a warrior in the middle of a war. A war that's very much similar to the war in the Chronicles of Narnia. I've dreamt about it before and I survived in that war. But last Saturday, I wasn't able to find out if I have survived from that war. My mom woke me up because it's already 9:00AM.

I slept late last night because I was bothered about something. I've slept past 12:00AM but it was a sleep that was not good. I had an insomnia between sleep. I've had different dreams. Again, not scary but something I'm afraid of. I was talking to people I no longer want to talk to. Bakit ganun?

An Excerpt from My Ice Breaker Speech

I delivered my first Toastmaster Speech (Ice Breaker) yesterday. It took me several days to compose it. The book said it's the easiest but the truth is that, I really find it hard. I hate to talk about me. Talking about me and my life is irrelevant! I delivered my speech with hesitation.

Let me share to you few lines from my Ice Breaker Speech:

Life happened because I turned the pages.

Mr. Toastmaster, My fellow Toastmasters, most welcomed guests, good afternoon.

Every life is a story and every story is a book. It is what we do everyday that makes a new page.

........................ body ............. about my life.................

In life, we are doomed to make choices. That is whether to live miserably, or to live life happily. And while was turning the pages of my life’s book, I have learned a lot of ways to live life to its fullest. I chose to join the Toastmaster's Club because I want to uncover the confidence hiding in my shell. I want to go beyond my comfort zone.

My life happened because I chose to turn the pages and I will keep on turning the pages and make life happen everyday.

Friends, keep on turning your pages and make life happen.

Thank You.

I was glad the evaluation was good. There were constructive criticisms though. I was told to go on with my 2nd speech which I believe I will be delivering early next year.

Good luck to me!

I want to thank my friend, Elle for letting me borrow the quote, Life happened because I turned the pages. Thanks Elle!

I am a Fuschia Girl Today

Spell Fuschia! Oh.. pwede red na lang? R-I-D! Bwahahahaha...

Why am I wearing fuschia today? Ahahaha... Simply because it's raining. I am wearing a fuschia-colored hollister jacket given by my sister. This is my favorite jacket. I wear this on Fridays & Saturdays at work. Medyo malamig talaga sa office.

But that's not the only reason. Pinaplano ko na last night to bring this jacket with me. I want to start my day happy! I find this color something that could bring joy to me. Ambot ngano! Ganahan lang ko.

I felt empty for a while last night. I could not figure out what happened. Siguro pressured ng konti. Hindi ko matiyak bakit. Bakit?!?!?! Yesterday was a so-so day. Baka takot lang yun bwahahaha... I delivered my Toastmater's first speech last night. Pero di naman ako kinabahan.

Ewan! Umuwi na lang ako sa bahay tapos bigla na lang nagblank ang isip ko. Prang nawalan ng lakas na may halong inis sa sarili. Di ko maintindihan. Pagkadating ko sa bahay, naisipan ko na lang maglabas ng konting lakas. I took my dart pins from my drawer and started hitting the dart board. Yun, medyo nawala ng konti ang emptiness(dart game lang pala katapat!). Then nagkompyuter na kaagad. Parang boring din ang kompyuter pero pinilit ko maglaro na lang ng poker para tuluyang maligaw ako baka sakaling mawala ang emptiness. Haynaku! Ayun! Nag usap kami ng isang kaibigan. Hanggang sa naging alive ulit ako at ayaw na namang matulog! I slept at almost 1.00AM. Buti na lang nagising ako ng maaga!

Ayun, naalala ko kasi si Stephen Covey at ang kanyang mahiwagang 90/10 principle. And I chose to make my days something different from yesterday! I want to be happy today. So, I started my day wearing a happy color hoping that my day will be a happy day!

Have a happy day, friends!

Mahiya Naman Kayo!

When I was on my way to work this early morning, my eyes were moving to and fro as if I was looking for something... or could that be someone? Bwahahahaha...

I started to notice the clean surroundings of the metropolis. Hmmm... It made me smile (ang linis ng Davao!)... lol... When all of a sudden, I saw a young man throwing a candy wrapper on the ground! Toink! Hay naku! Pasalamat siya malayo ako! Mahiya ka naman!

Naisip niya kaya na nakakahiya ang ginawa niya? The place was clean tapos bigla na lang siyang magtapon ng basura? Hay naku... Sa tingin ko wala siyang pakialam.... Sana maging aware na ang lahat why Davao City is experiencing flood kapag umuulan. I think hindi lang poor drainage system ang dahilan. Sa tingin ko, isa na rin sa mga dahilan ang kapabayaan ng mga mamayan(hindi naman lahat). Ayan! Nagkakalat ng basura kahit saan tapos yung mga basura na nakakalat, yun yung na stuck sa mga canals. Para sa mga hindi aware, yan ang dahilan kung bakit nawawala yung functionality ng mga drainage systems natin! Hindi na na serve ng canals & drainage system ang purpose nila! Haysus!

Magising naman tayo! Haynaku!

Chained Jade

Am early again (as usual). I am in uniform with my watch at the right wrist together with the chained jade(could still feel the pain in my left wrist).

Have you ever had something that's important to you? I mean something that was given to you and you valued it the most? Well, this is what this chained jade's all about.

What's with this chained jade? Well, it is a jade bounded with a chain. It has a sentimental value to me. A very good friend gave this jade way back in my 5th year at the university, before the semestral break. I bought a chain and I used to wear that chained jade bafore. I have lost it once and did whatever it takes to find it. And I've found it. When that very good friend left, I stopped wearing it. I told myself what's the point? So, I just kept it.

I don't know why I'm wearing it today. Maybe I remembered that friend. Oh, right! I remembered my friend! I remembered her because the song(Pilgrim's Theme) we used to sing was played in my MP3 player this morning. That's it!

I really value things my friends gave me. Because I know, friends will only stay with you for not a very long time. Friends come, friends go. And wherever they are, they've been a part of my life and I will always remember them and value the things they gave me.

To my friend who gave me the jade(you know who you are if you read this blog), thank you for being a part of my past. You will always be remembered. Am wearing the jade.... hehehehehe... I miss you!

I Missed Blogging

Today is the 7th day since I've had my last post in this blog. I definitely missed blogging!

Well, life has been rough to me the past days. I was hospitalized for the first time(take note: FIRST TIME)! I didn't know that only a mosquito bite could break my health record (I've never been hospialized for the 26 years of my life). I got a breakbone fever, also known as dengue fever. I could hardly remember where I've met that mosquito. It could be somewhere on my way home or somewhere in the open coffeeshop where I usually spend my freetime or when I meet some friends.

It all started with a headache in a Saturday night after a very long sleep. I took a bath to meet some friends later at night but I could no longer manage to go out because I started to feel I'm having a fever. So, I stayed (sorry guys, didn't made it to see you). The fever was still there the following morning. I stayed home the whole Sunday. I worked on Monday because I thought I'm okay. The fever just disappeared. I finished my day at a friend's house. On Tuesday, I was at work but I kept taking breaks and stayed at the stock room because I feel very cold. Then got fever again the Tuesday night. On Wednesday, I took a leave from work and went to the doctor. No fever at all. I've had my first platelet count because my sister suspected it's the symptom (on & off fever) for dengue fever. My platelet count was 122 which was below normal (normal is 140-440). I went back to work on Thursday morning, went to the clinic for another platelet count and platelet went down to 95. My doctor said it's not yet threatening but my sister and my friends were worried and they were telling me to go to the hospital. I left work early. My sister brought me to the hospital.

Thursday afternoon, at the hospital, I got another platelet count which was 116 (rising from 95) at the ER. Got my first bag of D5NSS dextrose. The needle was big! I was scared, really! Then I was wheeled to my room. I was needled 3 times for the dextrose. They were looking for a perfect IV site. Fortunately, the third one works. I have encountered a lot of needles. Aside from that of IV site search, med techs visited me every 6 hours. They inserted a needle to my vein extracting a small amount of blood for platelet count (I remebered the least was 61).

Much for that. What's important is am doing well now though the wounds are still hurting.

I would like to thank those people who remembered me during those times - to those who went to visit me, to those who extended their support during the medication process, to those who sent me text messages, to those who called, and to those who talked to me through YM. I felt so loved & blessed for having these people. My special thanks to my sister & Lorgie for staying with me at the hospital from the day I was admitted until the day I was discharged. Thank you very much!

Wala lang...

I have just thought about this question when I was trying to get my energy back 30 minutes ago. Questions that starts with why are the worst questions in the world(for me). Why? Because they are to be answered with explanations. I hate to explain. It's a brain damaging thing. Diba? Lalo na when you're asked by your boss why things happened. Haysus!

The truth is, I hate to answer questions that are not answerable by a simple yes and no. Questions that start with who, when & where are usually followed by why. Huhuhuhu... Diba? Like when you're presenting something to your boss. Haay.... makabalik na nga sa trabaho...

Just Another Ordinary Long Day

I'm in at 7.17. Earlier than my rivals in the CSG Punctuality Award wahahaha.... just playing around hahaha... My company does not offer such award except for the PAB which serves as the December bonus.

I could hardly open my eyes this morning. Everytime my alarm starts ringing I kept on reaching the snooze button. Got a headache, ugh! I thought I'm sick again but I couldn't leave work. I still managed to take a shower (damn it's cold!). Well, am here now, blogging and starting to make my list of to dos. Ehehehe... OA lang gyud...

Oh, I had a great time last night. I was at Kasagingan with Dulce & Ate Joie but they left before the rain poured (swerte naman!). So, I was stuck under the banana leaf ehehehe...

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day... When the rain stopped, my good friend Leah invited me to her house. I find myself there, later in the evening. Well, yah! I stayed late but I had a good conversation with her(conversations I missed doing with friends). That was quite a conversation I never wanted to end but I really have to rest for a while for the next day's activity. I am hoping to continue that conversation with you, Leigh.

Oh, got a good news! I got a Flickr Pro account gift(August 2009 to August 2010) from a friend! Yay! Thanks Ate Shirley! I'll make use of that gift! That's her early Christmas gift for me, btw.

So that's it! Have to make my list now!

Have a great day everyone!

Another Long Day

Here comes another long week and am not ready. I had a two-day rest but it wasn't really a good one. I was quitely attacked by headache and fever Saturday afternoon. I was supposed to meet some friends I missed. But rain started to pour after my shower. The rain served its purpose not to let me out of the house. Fine! I stayed home and messaged my friends that I can't make it. There was thunder, too! I'm afraid of the kulog, yaya! Hahahaha..

Sunday, I was still in my room feeling weaker (wala man kagawas hahahaha). Am bored and good thing that someone's willing to converse with me via YM (thanks Leigh).

Now, am back to work hoping that everything's going to be okay. I still have my headache... I could sense fever's totally going away and away!

Today's what to dos: (1) make purchase request for items not yet purchased (2) check inventory (3) followup undelivered stocks for inventory (4) list some violators (5) submit report to maintenance (6) update budget for PBR (7) work ahead on variance (8) check on illegally reconnected customers (9) do some orders from the bosses. Uhmmm... That's it!

I will be meeting some good friends later...

Good luck to me! Hehehehehe...

Have to start hitting the list.

Have a great Monday, everyone!

If I Lost My Thumb

I just punched-in for my afternoon duty and I don't know why I find myself smiling while pressing my thumb on the the fingerprint recognizer. Then I asked myself what if I lose or if I cut my thumb. How will I log myself in and out before and sfter duty? Oh no!

I remembered last week, I wrapped my thumb with a bandage to protect a cut from infections. When I was at the eTRS to punch-in, I was stuck there for a while because I have to remove the bandage from my thumb for the system to recognize me.

Paano if maputol ang thumb ko? Tapos walang guard para mag log ng time in & out ko? Wahhhhhh! Narealize ko tuloy na talagang may disadvantages ang advanced systems... na dapat may alternatives.

Wala lang. Natawa lang talag ako. Bwahahahaha...

Please Don't Make it Hard for You <------ for MJT

I am a worrier. Well, I was! But not anymore. I have changed my views in life.

Last night, I had a YM conversation with a friend. Well, he's a good friend of mine. He's a classmate in college and he became a very close friend after school. This guy is a man of principles. Most may not contradict from my principles but we have to discuss a lot about it. He worries a lot. I am very much worried about this friend. I don't want him to be like the old me.

I remembered we had a conversation years ago about how to spend time with our partners. Say, his girlfriend and my boyfriend, which both of us don't have hehehehe. We talked about it for long hours at a mall's carpark. I could no longer remember what brought us there. His ideas contradict mine. Well if he's having a girlfriend, he'd choose to spend if not all, most of his time with her... just the two of ém. Sweet, isn't it? Hahaha... Peace, Merv! Mine is, if I'd be having a boyfriend, I'd spend time with him (just the two of us), I'd spend time with him & his friends, & I'd spend time with him and my friends with us.

Last night, because he's out of the country, we had this conversation in YM. He's bothered about religion matters. I made it clear to him that religion does not save someone - it's what you do that counts! I remembered he mentioned catholicism with me before but I wasn't aware he's serious about it.

I told him not to worry about it! Instead, do good things and live life to the fullest.

I don't descriminate religion... I have friends from different religions but I never had a problem with them. It's because we respect each. Religion might be a guide to exercise beliefs but it cannot save life. Yes, we are saved. Jesus died on the cross but we also have to do our part. We also have to do good things to acknowledge His death. He died for us.

Before I went to bed last night, I asked myself a lot of questions. What's bothering this friend? I knew him as a very good friend of mine. Anong nagyari sa kanya? He asks a lot of questions about my belief.

John, you're a good friend and I thank you for that. There might be times that
we dicussed about serious matters, we even argued because we have different ideas. But despite all of those, I still value you because you're someone who really cares about me. Please believe what you have to believe. Don't make things hard for you. Do what you think is the best way that could save you and that could make you the happiest man. Do not worry too much about being in the right religion or not. It can't save you. Just trust in the Lord and everything will be alright. Ask Him your questions in silence. Talk to Him. In time, He will give you answers. Just trust in Him.

I'm worried about you. I hope we could still meet when you come back. Sabi mo after my birthday. I will be looking forward to it pero much better if andito ka na sa birthday ko. Ingat kayo diyan ni Allan. Be happy always. Life is short. Make the most of it. Do what you think are the best things that could make you happy. Wala baya ta kabalo until when lang atong existence diri sa world. May God bless you! Ingat ikaw.

Killing is Against the Law of God...Is it in this World?

7.17 - Punch-in time.

I was on my way home in the wee hour of this morning when something caught my attention. People running from there to here, along the street making a crowd. I was a bit curious what was there and kay chismax man, nakahibalo ra gyud. A mutlicab driver was shot dead.

What's happening in this city? I have heard about those mysterious killers. Is there any gain in their part after they kill someone? Do they have a God?

I've known this city as the safest city. I have always been proud that I live in this city. When I was in another place, somewhere in Visayas, I could hardly find myself outside after 10:00PM. It's because of the rumors scattered that there are lots of hoodlums strolling around the city at night.

Davao is the safest city I know and I am proud to be a Dabawenyo. But what's happening now? Someone's shot here, someone's shot there with unidentified gunmen. Let me ask. Are those killed really guilty of doing something that they have to suffer that way? I believe some of them are innocent. They're just being suspected but they really are innocent. Kawawang inosente, nagbabayad sa kasalanang di naman niya ginagawa and to think that killing is against God's Law. I am not just sure if it is in this world.

Now, is it safe for me and for others to stay outside during the night? Am I sure I could go home safe? What if they'd kill me na inosente naman ako? May madagdag ba sa pagkatao nila? Magkakaroon ba sila ng kapangyarihan?

What I know is that only God has the right to sentence someone's life. Everybody deserves chances. If God gave chances, why can't we give chances to our fellowmen?

May God forgive them....

Have a great & peaceful day, everyone!

How's sleep? I had a good sleep last nigh though I woke up at around 2:00AM. Not bad because I've slept again later.

So! Any plans for today? Ooohhh, I arrived here at around 7:17AM. I thought I'd be in by 6:50 hah hah! Too much! Ahahahaha...

I planned to go home early yeasterday. I was at a store to buy some important stuffs. I was at the counter when my sister called. She invited me for dinner... I didn't refuse(usahay ra baya) hahahaha... Thanks, sis! I was just wondering why my sister is so kind to me. Well, it's a good start! We're starting to spend time together...again. She even invited me for a massage last Sunday but I don't really liked the idea of going out that late. I just told her to have our helper do the massage. So, there, di na kami lumabas.

She's planning for another massage. I always discourage her because I've tried those last year but I was never satisfied. I would prefer the "manghihilot" coz mafeel gyud nako na gihilot ko. As a matter of fact, I always let the "manghihilot" go to our house everytime I missed my period.

Oppps... I have to go. I have to have this morning session (chikka) with officemates para unya deretso na work... Hehehehhee...

Have a great day everyone!

What Makes Me Younger?

Last night, I bumped into this interesting site, Real Age. I was quite curious what it’s all about. When I opened the site, the curiosity became intense and I decided to take the RealAge Test.

Just a few hours ago, I went through my mailbox to check the result. And there I was surprised with the result. It tells me that I’m +2.9 of my calendar age. Therefore, my real age is 30.6.

Let me tell you what makes me younger : (1) I don’t take any meds (2) I’m a non-smoker (3) I have parents who stayed together (4) I don’t eat much red meat (5) and I build my flexibility. Do you wanna know what makes me feel older? Nah! I’m sure you’re now curious about what making you younger and older. Why don’t you take the test? After all, it’s free!

What’s good about taking the test is that, it tells you what makes you younger and what makes you older and it suggests plans for you to live life to the youngest! Great, isn’t it? And one good thing about it is that, you can absolutely Take the free RealAge Test.

Are you getting intrigued now? Why not Take the RealAge Test! It's Free! test and see for yourself?

Free Widgets and Downloads from Readers Digest

I have been a fanatic of Readers Digest when I took a glimpse of it when I was a kid. I can still remember my dad got a monthly subscription for it. I loved its stories, its humors, and its quotes! It is much appreciative now that Readers Digest has invaded the World Wide Web. Readers Digest still rocks online! What makes it more wonderful now are the widgets and downloads which are made possible by Readers Digest. There's Word Power where building one's vocabulary is fun. It also houses RD Laughs Main where humors are in store for the readers. One can also try the Prop My Photo page where funny props can be added to one's page. If one can't get enough of Readers Digest, a toolbar is made available for downloading that allows Readers Digest to be at our very own fingertips in either Firefox or Internet Explorer. I have in fact downloaded an RD toolbar to ensure that I'd be getting the freshest news from Readers Digest. I also tried to play the Word Power game as part of the widget. Why not check on the widgets and download them as well? It's just so easy. Simply visit Readers Widgets, be informed and have fun!

I'm Late

Yay! I'm late.... I punched in LATE! I ate my lunch and finished it early. Done fixing myself for the afternoon... Why am I late? Any reasons, anyone? Whew! Syeeeet!

Well, that's because I did not receive any flashing note in my monitor. I was just staring my monitor, reading some blogs and I forget TIME! Damn! I could have bought a personal bell for my alarm... An alarm that shouts,"AMOR, TIME TO PUNCH IN!" Bwahehehehe...

What I am doing now? I'm just laughing. It's my first time anyways and still, my PAB is safe unless I punch in late for repeatedly... Tagam! Hah!

Whom to Blame

This is a story stocked in my mailbox since yesterday. I've read it already but couldn't find time to post so, I am posting this now to share with you. This is a beautiful story that describes the 1st Habit of Stephen Covey's The 7th Habit of Highly Effective People. By the way, the first habit is BE PROACTIVE. I hope the 1st habit will be clear after you read the story.

Boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage.
They were a Loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes.
When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle Open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep It in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter.
The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by Its colour and
drank it all.
It happened to be a poisonous medicine Meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother Hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She Was terrified how to face her husband.
When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child ,

He looked at his wife and uttered just five words.


1. What were the five words?
2. What is the implication of this story?


The husband just said "I am with you Darling"

The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive Behaviour.
The Child is dead. He can never be brought back to life.
There is no point In finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to Keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.
No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she Needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would Be much fewer problems in the world. "A journey of a thousand miles Begins with a single step." Take off all your envies, jealousies, Unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are Actually not as difficult as you think.

Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame,
Whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this Way we
miss out some warmth
in human relationship.

That was the story. I hope I have shared something that could help you to be better as a person.

Rise & Shine!

Good morning, everyone! 7.10AM, am in! Earlier than yesterday, isn't it? Well, I thought I'd come later than yesterday because I hit the bathroom later than the usual. But I think I'm at the right side of the bed when I woke up, ready to rise and shine and do things well today.

I was home late last night. Ugh! My friends from the union gave me an ambush invitation for dinner. They gave me a ride home I think it was 9:00PM when what I was planning is to be home earlier than that. So much of them. Bwahehehe...

Oh... when I started joining clubs and organizations in this company, I have widen my network of friends and I am always caught in meetings. Whoah! I have to talk to the Toastmaster president today. Yes, I made a commitment to be at the Toastmaster Davao's cocktail party but I also have an urgent meeting tonight with the union. So sad, but maybe if the meeting adjourns earlier than expected, I could find a ways to still be at the cocktail party. Well, I really wanted to go to that party. It's an opportunity again to meet new people within the different TM clubs and as they've said there will be foreign TM guests. But I think I'd be gping there late if I can. I have to be at the union's meeting. Important issues will be discussed.

Well, let's just see what's going to happen later. hehehehe...

Have a great day ahead, everyone!

Early to Rise, Early at Work

7.18AM and am already in! I always start my day at work by cleaning up my table(sometimes there are papers left when I'm out of the office or I'm off in a Saturday). Then, scheduling what to do first, then next until the end of the day.

I came early trying to think it's gonna be a busy day. I have to rush in doing my daily tasks because there's a scheduled meeting with the management this afternoon. And to my surprise, it was cancelled. I have to attend an urgent meeting later in the afternoon though. But that was good for me because I have to finish a report on department expenses. It's going to be a not soooo pressuring day(I hope hehehehe).

Sometimes, it's good to expect the worst and then later realized that it's not that worst at all.

Well, if you would ask me how I was last week, I would say it's perfect! I was not that loaded because I managed to relax during the holiday.

And my weekend was even more than perfect! I have this short notice to attend a Toastmaster's Event and I had a great time meeting those members from different clubs plus I have witnessed on how a contest is done.

Then I met a new friend in the evening. We'll I also had fun. And I kinda say I already have this confidence to meet new people. That has been a goal since I started my life after college.

That's it. I'm hoping this week's going to be as best as last week. Uhmmmm...

Good Morning, everyone!

I Had Fun

Last Friday, I blogged that I'm going to field for work. It's my superior's will that ladies who're working in the office should be exposed at field to familiarize the standards and experience what our male team members had been experiencing.

My day out last Friday was fun! It really is and I proudly say, I now know how meters were tested for accuracy. I had fun and I've learned a lot - from removing the seal to removing the meter, testing the meter to replacing a new meter then resealing it again.

Here are some photos taken by my Team Leader:

Setting up.

With a team member, also setting up for testing.

Amor Went Back to Malagos

Hello my dear readers, as I promised you, I am going to blog about my Malagos Adventure. It's been almost a year since I had my last adventure in the Southern part of the City. I have just realized how big my city is.

It was last Nov. of last year that I went to places in the part of Calinan with some friends from the office. We went to EPOL and Seagull in the Sky. I had fun, yes I had....

Just last Wednesday(holiday-Eid'l Fitr), I and my good friends in my team went out for an adventure again, in the southern part of the city but this time, it's no longer EPOL and Seagull in the sky.

We hit the road at exactly 8:30AM. Our first stop was at The Philippine Eagle. Well, I had been to that place years ago and I see a lot of improvements. Well done, I could say. We had enough time to visit every corner and every endangered species they have there.


At nearly lunchtime, we hit the road again going to a friend's farm. We had our lunch there. Btw, thanks to Enjie & her Mom for the very warm welcome. They offered us different vareities of durian. Slurrp! hehehehe...

After lunch, we rest for a while, roam around the farm and settled at their living room for the singing session. While the two were enjoying the singing, another two enjoyed the pictorial. Hahahaha... They're trying to practice because sooner, I will be asking them to be my model. Hahahaha...

I Miss You, Papang...

We started packing up at past 5:00PM and headed back to the city. Before we finally hit our way back to the origin, we went to a subdivision in Mintal to visit a friend who had just given birth to her sweet baby boy.

Self & Friends

Then, we called it a Holiday!

Friday, October 3, 2008

Envina's Day Out

It's friday yet, it's not just a normal day for me. I will be out of the office(yuhooo). Today is my 2nd exposure at field. Yay! I hope it's going to be an interesting day! I will be roaming around the city with the team. Roaming, yet working... Hehehehe... I hope there'd be another new knowledge today!

So guys, I have to go!

Ingats kayo!

Hot Chocolate

Here's another inspirational story that got into my company email last week. I have just read this a few minutes ago since I have attended to several tasks the past days. Now am just waiting for the right time to leave for my meeting at the power plant. I will be leaving in a few minutes. While waiting, I opened the mail and got this new inspiration. So, here's the insiprational story:

A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were
at a reunion and decided to go visit their old
university professor, now

During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in
their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor
went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot
chocolate and
an assortment of cups - porcelain, glass,
crystal, some plain looking, some
expensive, some exquisite -
telling them to help themselves to the hot
When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the
professor said: 'Notice that all the nice looking, expensive
cups were
taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.
While it is normal for you
to want only the best for
yourselves, that is the source of your problems
and stress.

The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the quality
of the
hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive
and in some cases
even hides what we drink. What all of you
really wanted was hot chocolate,
not the cup; but you
consciously went for the best cups...

And then you began eyeing each other's cups.
Now consider this: Life
is the hot chocolate; your job, money
and position in society are the cups.

They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have
not define, nor change the quality of life you have.
Sometimes, by
concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy
the hot chocolate God has
provided us. God
makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups.

The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They
just make
the best of everything that they

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly...
enjoy your hot chocolate.

Inspiring, isn't it? Now reflect on this and do something.....

Early Tuesday Morning

Uhhmmmm... 7:18AM ... punch-in! Whooops... It's been months that I came that early for work. parang competition, ano! Bwahehehe...

You might wonder am starting to speak Tagalog... Kala nyo nauubusan na ako ng english ano? Bwahehehe... Well, starting today, I will speak Tag-Lish, or Bis-Tag-Lish. I delcare this blog a free blog! Free to use any languuage or dialect I know. Walay but-anay! Hakhakhak...

I am so excited! Tomorrow's going to be a great day! Well, today is... lunch time is lechon time! It's gonna be a party time company wide! SVP AMM is giving away lechons as a prize of beating zero harm for 2 months! Naku! Busog nanaman mamaya!

Tomorrow's a new day, and it's gonna be a great day! Time for adventure! Yehey! As what I've said, I'll blog about it! Bwahehehe...

Have a great day, everyone!

Juan: Wala na bang pag-asa? Ano po ba ang dapat kong gawin?
Dok: Mag-asawa ka na lang ng pangit at bungangera.
Juan: Bakit, gagaling po ba ako ru'n?
Dok: Hindi, pero mas gugustuhin mo pang mamatay kesa mabuhay!

Lito: Pare, ano ba ang kaibahan ng H2O sa CO2?
Joseph: Diyos ko naman! Di mo ba alam 'yun?!
Ang H2O ay water! At ang CO2... cold water.

Gustong malaman ng magkaibigan kung may basketbolan sa langit.
Nagkasundo sila na kung sino ang unang mamatay ay babalik upang
sabihin kung may basketbol sa langit. Naunang namatay si Dado.
Isang gabi, may narinig na boses si Rodel na parang kay Dado.
"Ikaw ba 'yan, Dado?" usisa ni Rodel.
"Oo naman!" tugon ni Dado.
"Parang hindi totoo!" bulalas ni Rodel. "O, ano, meron bang basketbol
sa langit?"
Sagot ni Dado, "May maganda at masama akong balita sa 'yo.
Ang maganda, may basketbol doon. Ang masama...
kasali ka sa makakalaban namin bukas!" (ngek!)

Usapan ng dalawang bata...
Junjun: Magaling ang tatay ko! Alam mo, 'yang Pacific Ocean ,
siya ang humukay nun!
Pedrito: Wala 'yan sa tatay ko! Alam mo, yung Dead Sea ?
Junjun: Oo...
Pedrito: Siya ang pumatay nun!

Stewardess: Do you want a drink, sir?
Sir: What are my choices?
Stewardess: Yes or No.

Misis: Hindi ko na kaya 'to! Araw-araw nalang tayong nag-aaway
Mabuti pa, umalis na ako sa bahay na 'to!
Mister: Ako rin, sawang-sawa na! Away rito, away roon! Mabuti pa
siguro, sumama na ako sa 'yo!

Misis: Delayed ako nang one month pero huwag mo munang
ipagsabi. Nahihiya ako...
Mister: Okey.
Kinabukasan, dumating ang taga-Meralco. ..
Taga-Meralco: Misis, delayed po kayo ng one month.
Misis: Ha? Bakit mo alam?
Taga-Meralco: Nasa record po.
Misis: Sasabihin ko ito sa Mister ko.
Mister: (Galit at nagpunta sa Meralco.) Bakit naka-record diyan
na delayed ang misis ko?
Taga-Meralco: Kung gusto ninyong mawala sa record, magbayad kayo!
Mister: Eh kung ayokong magbayad?
Taga-Meralco: Puputulan kayo!
Mister: Eh anong gagamitin ni misis?
Taga-Meralco: Pwede naman siyang gumamit ng kandila.

Advantage at disadvantage ng may-asawa...
ADVANTAGE: 'Pag kailangan mo, nandiyan agad.
DISADVANTAGE: 'Pag ayaw mo na, andiyan pa rin!

What is the difference between a girlfriend, a call girl and a wife?
Sagot: Post paid, pre paid, unlimited.

Sa isang classroom...
Titser: Class, what is ETHICS?
Pilo: Etiks are smaller than ducks.
Titser: Okey, that duck will lay an egg in your card.

Anak: Itay, nagpapatanong si ma'am kung ano
raw ang propesyon mo.
Itay: Sabihin mo, cardiologist.
Anak: Ano po ba ang cardiologist, Itay?
Itay: 'Yung taga-ayos ng radio sa car!

Umuwi si mister nang 4:00 AM at nakita niya

Mister: Sino 'yang katabi mo?

Rodrigo: Bakit bad trip ka?
Harry: Nagtampo sa 'kin ang utol ko.
Rodrigo: Bakit naman?
Harry: Nakalimutan ko kasi ang birthday niya.
Rodrigo: 'Yun lang? Anong masama ru'n?
Harry: Ang masama ru'n... twins kami! Twins!

Looking Forward to a Very Great Week

Uhmmm.. Well, I'm having a great day! I've had a stressful week last week. Maybe because I've never put my eyes to rest that well. As always, I sleep late than a normal person. I work for the whole day, six times every other week. When I reach home, I usually go directly to my little room forgetting dinner, wash, change clothes, simultaneously turn my pc and eepc on, whenever I feel the presence of sleep visiting me, I sometimes fight sleep just to complete my routine of visitng few sites - friendster, multiply, flickr, photoworldcup, facebook and other activities like photo processing... I am not really a sleep junkie. My eyes could survive to be awake for almost 24 hours or more but my body can't.

Lately, I have experienced eye pain. Maybe because I have stopped wearing my contact lens or my glasses. That added the stress I've had last week. I easily get tired and I have observed I'm already in bed at 11PM. Now, am wearing them back but not all the time. Life started to run smoothly as of yesterday morning. I woke up late at around 11AM. Yeah, of course because I slept late last Saturday. I had a YM conference with my flickr groupies and it lasted at almost 2AM of Sunday.

My Sunday was great! I was a bit pressured trying to finish my online task given by but the pressure was tolerable.

I woke up this early morning. Yehey, earlier than my alarm! Of course, I arrived at my office desk as early as 7:15AM.

I'm having a great day! I have already thought about a great week. 2 days work, then holiday break(Eid'l Fitr), then 2 days back to work and then 2-day break from work! Yuhooo....

My 'Kada Opisina' is planning to go somewhere in Tawan-Tawan this Holiday Break. I'm so excited because I always heart to go to places away from the busy city if I could. The plan's first stop is at my ka-opisina's farm and the next stop will be at the Philippine Eagle. Hmmm... been looking forward to be back to that spot. My last visit was 10 years ago, I might say. Hopefully, I could see changes there.

I'm looking forward to a very great week!

Dah.... can't wait! So, excited!

I'll blog about it, don't cha worry!

Creative Exchange 2009

Ms. Leah Valle, the event organizer of this Creative Exchange 2009 invited different people - photographers, bloggers, businessmen and etc. to be there. As a newbie in the world of photography, I went there to take the opportunity to shoot in events like this.

Creative Exchange 2009

And so, I was there, the night of September 27,2008. The show was a success of this young organizer despite the rain(well, rains are considered blessings ;)). I had fun with my friend. We left so soon because my friend had an urgent call.

It's nice to be at the events like this one to people who loves to take shots like me. I am a hobbyist and a newbie in photography.

Busy...Busy.. Busy

It's been a while since I've had my last post. I am so sorry, readers. I had been very busy as I wanted to get out of my shell in the field of photography.

I've become more busy the past days. This time, it's not because of the tasks given to me by the company I worked for but it's about getting out of my shell. I am doing a self-study. I study post processing or doing the HDRI (High Dynamic Range Image).

I happened to bump into someone's site and I've seen his HDRs. I love his works. If you're curious enough, you might as well visit his site. Let me introduce to you, KrisKros.

I have posted some of my selected photos in my photoblog and I hope I could post some post processed photos someday. Here's my photoblog DABWENYA'S PHOTOBLOG.

9/11, A Noted Day to Americans

Today, is a day that america will never forget. It is 9/11, the day when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed caused by terrorists(hijackers).

Here's and excerpt from wikipsedia:

"On that morning, terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.[1][2] The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the building, causing both buildings to collapse within two hours, destroying at least two nearby buildings and damaging others. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania, after passengers and members of the flight crew on the fourth aircraft attempted to retake control of their plane, which was heading for Washington, D.C.
There are no known survivors from any of the flights.

Excluding the 19 hijackers, 2,974 people died in the attacks. Another 24 are missing and presumed dead. The overwhelming majority of casualties were civilians, including nationals of over 90 different countries. In addition, the death of at least one person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of exposure to dust from the World Trade Center's collapse, as rescue and recovery workers were exposed to airborne contaminants following the buildings' collapse."

It is also a noted day for me and my relatives because my cousin, who's working in a restaurant in one of the buildings of the Twin Towers was nearly a victim.

At the time of the attack, he was still in NJ, having a shower to prepare himself for work. He was then very lucky that time. If he left earlier, he could have been one of those who're trapped inside the building.

Thanks to God for protecting him from that attack.
May God let the souls of the 9/11 attack victims stay with Him in heaven.

I Missed Kobi

Yesterday, I was invited by a friend who loves dogs and photography together with another friend to a dog competition. It was the 2nd National Canine Competition. And because I love taking pictures, I took the opportunity.

So we went there. I enjoyed in watching the competition and same time, I took some pictures. You might want to see some of the pictures, please visit Dabawenya's Flickr.

While I was taking pictures, I saw Primo. He reminds me a lot of Kobi, my Japanese Spitz - Poodle breed dog who died last year. He looks like Primo. The only difference is that Kobi's a black-haired doggie.

I missed Kobi. I missed how he welcomes me when I'm already near the gate from work. He wags his tail and jumps as if he's very happy to see me. I hope he's now in the arms of the Father.

Kobi, I missed you.

To Those Who Were Born in the 50's, 70's and early 80's

Well, this is just a re-post. This was sent to me thru e-mail and just want to share it because it's true....


1950's, 60' s, 70's and early 80's !! especially pinoy, pinay!

some of us s urvived being born to mothers who did not have an OB-Gyne and drank San Miguel Beer while they carried us.

While pregnant, they took cold or cough medicine,
a te isaw, and didn't worry about diabetes.

Then after all that trauma, our baby cribs were made of hard wood covered with lead-based paints
, pati na yung walker natin, matigas na kahoy din at wala pang gulong.

We had no soft cushy cribs that play music, no disposable diapers (lampin lang), and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, no
kneepads , sometimes wala pang preno yung bisikleta.

As children, we would ride in hot un-airconditioned buses with wooden seats (yung JD bus na pula), or cars with no airconditioning & no seat belts (ngayon lahat may aircon na)

Riding on the back of a carabao
on a breezy summer day was considered a treat. (ngayon hindi na nakakakita ng kalabaw ang mga bata)

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle purchased from 711
( minsan straight from the faucet or poso)

We shared one soft drink bottle with four of our friends, and NO ONE actually died from this.
Or contacted hepatitis.

We ate rice with star margarine, drank raw eggs straight from the shell, and drank sofdrinks with real sugar in it (hindi diet coke), but we weren't sick or overweight kasi nga......


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, and get back when the streetlights came on.
Sarap mag patintero, tumbang preso , habulan at taguan.

No one was able to reach us all day
( di uso ang cellphone , walang beepers ) . And yes, we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our wooden trolleys (yung bearing ang gulong) or plywood slides out of scraps and then ride down the street , only to find out we forgot the brakes! After hitting the sidewalk or falling into a canal (seweage channel) a few times, we learned to solve the problem ourselves with our bare & dirty hands .

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 100 channels on cable, no DVD movies, no surround stereo, no IPOD's,
no cell phones, no computers, no Internet, no chat rooms, and no Friendsters....... ...WE HAD REAL FRIENDS and we went outside to actually talk and play with them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no stupid lawsuits from these accidents
. The only rubbing we get is from our friends with the words..masakit ba ? pero pag galit yung kalaro mo,,,,ang sasabihin sa iyo..beh buti nga !

We played marbles (jolens) in the dirt , washed our hands just a little and ate dirty ice cream & fish balls. we were not afraid of getting germs in our stomachs.

We had to live with homemade guns " gawa sa kahoy, tinali ng rubberband , sumpit , tirador at kung ano ano pa na puedeng makasakitan..pero masaya pa rin ang lahat.

We made up games with sticks
( syatong ), and cans ( tumbang preso )and although we were told they were dangerous, wala naman tayong binulag o napatay.paminsan minsan may nabubukulan lang.

We walked, rode bikes, or took tricycles to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them to jump out the window!

Mini basketball teams
had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't pass had to learn to deal with the disappointment. Wala yang mga childhood depression at damaged self esteem ek-ek na yan. Ang pikon, talo.

Ang magulang ay nandoon lang para tignan kung ayos lang ang mga bata, hindi para makialam at makipag-away sa ibang parents.

That generation
of ours has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, creative thinkers and successful professionals ever! They are the CEO's, Engineers, Doctors and Military Generals of today.

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had failure, success, and responsibility. We learned from our mistakes the hard way.

You might want to share this with others who've had the luck to grow up as real kids. We were lucky indeed.

And if you like, forward it to your kids too, so they will know how brave their parents were.

It kind of makes you wanna go out and climb a tree, doesn't it?!
