First, I was dying to finish my high school and start college.

Then I was dying to marry and have children.

And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough,

so I could go back to work.

But then I was dying to retire

And now I was dying . . .

And suddenlyI realized

I forget to live

Pls. don't let it happen to you
Appreciate your current situation
and enjoy each day
. . . old friend.


1.. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them'

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Sa nakalipas na dalawang linggo ng buwan na ito ay hindi tayo magkamayaw sa pagbubunyi sa mga bagong bayani sa ating henerasyon (pasintabi sa mga OFW, sila ang orig na mga bagong bayani) Una yung bago at pinakamataas na karangalan sa larangan ng boksing ang pagsungkit ni Manny Pacquiao sa 7 korona na siya pa lamang nakagagawa. May sumunod pa rito ang boksingero na si Rodel Mayol ay naging kampeon din sa kanyang ika-5 pagtatangka (bagama't hindi gaanong sikat tulad ni Pacquiao, ito'y dagdag karangalan pa rin sa ating bansa sa loob lamang ng isang linggo.

Pero ang tunay na hinangaan ko ang totoo ay medyo naluha pa ako ng i-announce ang CNN Hero Of The Year. Siya ay si Efren Penaflorida, who started a Kariton Classroom to bring education to poor children. Grabeh ang sikat nitong si Efren, at mas sikat pa siya sa katukayo niyang si Efren "Bata" Reyes ng Billard. Hindi na ako magtataka kung sa mga susunod na araw ay magdidikit na dito si Chavit Singson at Lito Atienza. $100,000 ang grant sa kanya ng CNN (isa-suggest ko sa kaniya ang business na "Kariton Network" pwedeng maging franchise ito)

Naging panandalian lamang ang pagbubunyi natin sa mga bayaning ito dahil may sumambulat na balita na nagpagalit sa atin lahat, ito yung Maguindanao Massacre na 57 ang mga natuklasan patay at maari pang madagdagan (kabilang dito ang 27 na taga- media)na ang nahuhukay na pinaslang ng mga walang budhi na ( pasensiya na hindi ko pwedeng tawagin tao ang mga salarin na ito) ayon sa ulat ay away pulitika ang naging ugat nito. Hindi ko ito maintindihan na ang politiko na may layunin makapaglingkod sa tao, ay kailangan pang pumatay ng kanyang lapwa-tao.
Kung totoo ang alegasyon na ang mga Ampatuan ang may kagagawan, siya na ang panapat nating kontra-bayani laban kina Pacman at Penaflorida.
Hay, hindi na tayo naubusan ng malalaking balita samantalang napakaliit ng ating bansa.

Pacquiao outbox Cotto

" at muli kung nasungkit ang pinakasikat na tao sa Pilipinas, sorry kung bumaba ang rating ni Noynoy at ni Mang Tani ng PAGASA.

"Efren Penaflorida won CNN Hero of the Year 2009 " may $100K na ako, marami ng kariton akong mabibili, at hindi po ako tatakbo sa 2010 at kahit alukin ako ni Oliver Lozano na maging Bise-Pesidente niya."

" Akala ko mga nagpapahinga lang sa park ang mga ito at natutulog, yun pala mga tsugi na."

" ako nga si Ampatuan huwag ninyo akong pagbintangan na mamatay tao, di ako marunong pumatay, yun mga tauhan pwede pa pero ako hindi! hindi, pag nakalabas ako dito humanda ka papatayin kita."

There is only one Philippines

Where you can find a small country but big when it comes to news. No other than the Philippines. From calamity to personality, from disaster to massacre, from coronation to corruption. It's all here in this tiny archipelago where you can find all the big news. This country is gifted with both good and bad publicity.
Aren't you proud of your country?

Something I don't know, (Now I know)

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

One human hair can support 3kg (6.6 lb).

The average man's penis is two times the length of his thumb.

Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

A woman's heart beats faster than a man's

There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

Women blink twice as often as men.

The average person's skin weighs twice as much as the brain.

Our body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.

Women reading this will be finished now.

Men are still busy checking their thumbs.

Please read about this miracle fruit that can kill cancer cells 100,000 times, more effective than chemo that gave you side effects
Guyabano,...The Sour Sop Fruit
The Sour Sop or the fruit from the Graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale. So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time.
The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects.

If you have the space, plant one in your garden. The other parts of the tree are also useful. The Next Time You Have A Fruit Juice, Ask For A Sour Sop.
How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? This tree is low and is called Graviola in Brazil , Guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name "Soursop" in English.
The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.
The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects.
Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest.
This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it's the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple:Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival.
The Future Has Never Looked More Promising. Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:

* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America 's largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970's! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing...
Extracts from the tree were shown to:

* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including Colon, Breast, Prostate, Lung and Pancreatic cancer..
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells.

It Does Not Harm Healthy Cells!
The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched-- so why haven't you heard anything about it?
If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be--
why doesn't every single Oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?
The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health--
and for many, our very lives are controlled by money and power..

Graviola- -the plant that worked too well One of America 's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.
Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds--have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis.

Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties--and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended.
The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree--it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it. It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to
synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients.
If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back.
Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated.

There was no way the company could protect its profits--or even make back the millions it poured into research. As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!
Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team
whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed.
Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle Unleashed When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up--came in fast and furious.....The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...

Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials- the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value- -were ever initiated..A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin..."
The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.

Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients. A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers...
Seven Years Of Silence Broken--it's Finally Here! A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America .

It Works!

A woman comes home and tells her husband, ‘Remember those headaches I’ve been having. All these years? Well, they’re gone.’ ‘No more headaches?’

the husband asks, ‘What happened?’ His wife replies, ‘Margie referred me to a hypnotist & he told me to stand in front of a mirror, Stare at myself and repeat, ‘ I do not have a headache ‘ ‘ I do not have a headache ‘ ‘ I do not have a headache ‘ Well, it worked! The headaches are all gone.

‘ Well, that is wonderful’ proclaims the husband. His wife then says, ‘You know, you haven’t been exactly a ball of fire in the bedroom these last few years, why don’t you go see the hypnotist and see if he can do anything for that? ‘ Reluctantly, the husband agrees to try it.

Following his appointment, the husband comes home, rips off his clothes, picks up his wife and carries her into the bedroom. He puts her on the bed and says, ‘Don’t move, I’ll be right back.’ He goes into the bathroom and comes back a few minutes later and jumps into bed and makes passionate love to his wife like never before.. His wife says, ‘WOW! – that was wonderful!’

The husband says, ‘Don’t move! I will be right back.’ He goes back into the bathroom, comes back and round two was even better than the first time. The wife sits up and her head is spinning ‘ OH MY GOD ‘ She proclaims.

Her husband again says, ‘Don’t move, I’ll be right back.’ With that, he goes back in the bathroom. This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the bathroom, she sees him standing at the mirror and saying. ‘She’s not my wife ‘ ‘She’s not my wife ‘ ‘She’s not my wife ‘ . ‘She’s not my wife ‘

Story cut short, his wife is now languishing in jail for homicide.

A successful business man was growing old and
knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the
business. Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children,
he decided to do something different.

He called all the young executives in his company together.
He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the
next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you.
"The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued.
"I am going to give each one of you a SEED today - one very special SEED.
I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one
year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will
then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others,
received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She
helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed.
Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown.
After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their
seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew..
Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.
By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn't
have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by -- still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew
he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had
nothing. Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however... He just kept
watering and fertilizing the soil - He so wanted the seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company
brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty pot.
But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt
sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his
life, but he knew his wife was right.

He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he
was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were
beautiful -- in all shapes and sizes.
Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young
executives. Jim just tried to hide in the back. "My, what great plants,
trees, and flowers you have grown," said the CEO. "Today one of you
will be appointed the next CEO!"

All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room
with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the
front. Jim was terrified. He thought, "The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!"
When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed
- Jim told him the story.

The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim,
and then announced to the young executives, "Behold your next Chief Executive
Officer! His name is Jim!" Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed.
"How could he be the new CEO?" the others said.

Then the CEO said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone in
this room a seed.. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring
it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead - it was
not possible for them to grow.
All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers.
When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another
seed for the one I gave you.

Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a
pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief
Executive Officer!"

Brother Mike

Church people are now entering politics. Bro. Eddie Villanueva of Jesus Is Lord Church confirmed his 2nd attempt for the presidency, a Priest Governor from Pampanga, and of course the clown-preacher Bro. Mike Velarde of El Shaddai (by the way El Shaddai is a catholic charismatic movement w/c was founded by Bro. Mike 25 years ago.) And his latest pronouncement, he said that he is the only candidate who promise a life in heaven. Of course those stupid-fanatics followers believed him. why I boldly say that those people are stupid from day 1 he promised that all his members will get rich after 25 years they remain poors. I remember Cardinal Sin, onced said that Bro. Mike is a shallow preacher and I agreed with him completely. Ito minsan ang nakakapagtaka sa mga Pilipinong-katoliko. kaya nga maski hindi boto ang CBCP na ginagamit ang katoliko at ang pondo sa ministry nito na hindi malaman kung saan napupunta at dinadala ni Bro. Mike ay pinababayaan na lang nila ito, sa dahilan na mas pinakikinggan ng katolikong el Shaddai si Bro. Mike kesa sa mga Kaparian. Iboboto mo ba si Bro. Mike? ano ako hilo?

If Life is Water.....

A group of working adults got together
to visit their University lecturer.
The lecturer was happy to see them.
Conversation soon turned into complaints
about stress in work and life.

The Lecturer just smiled and went to the kitchen
to get an assortment of cups -some in plastic,
some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather
expensive and exquisite.

The Lecturer offered his former students
the cups to get drinks for themselves.

When all the students had a cup in hand with water,
the Lecturer spoke: "If you noticed, all the nice looking,
expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind
the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal that you only
want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your
problems and stress. What all you wanted was water,
not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups."

"Just like in life, if Life is Water, then the jobs,
money and position in society are the cups.
They are just tools to hold/maintain Life, but the
quality of Life doesn't change."

"If we only concentrate on the cup,
we won't have time to enjoy/taste the
water in it."

A stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui , Hawaii .

When he got back, he was complaining that the storeroom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse/rat droppings in some areas.!
A couple of days later, he started to feel like he was coming down with a stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began to vomit.

He went to bed and never really got up again. Within two
days he was severely ill and weak. His blood sugar count was down to 66, and his face and eyeballs were yellow. He was rushed to the emergency at Pali-Momi, where he was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure. He died shortly before midnight.
No one would have made the connection between his job and his death, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rat/mouse droppings at anytime. They said there is a virus (much like the Hanta virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings.

Once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroughly .

An autopsy was performed on the clerk to verify the doctor's suspicions.. .

This is why it is extremely important to ALWAYS carefully rinse off the tops of canned sodas or foods, and to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on.

Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, and stores themselves often have rodents.

Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans.
The ugly truth is, even the most modern, upper-class, super store has rats and mice. And their warehouse most assuredly does!

Whenever you buy any canned soft drink, please make sure that you wash the top with running water and soap or, if that is not available, drink with a straw.
The investigation of soda cans by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta discovered that the tops of soda cans can be encrusted with dried rat's urine, which is so toxic it can be lethal. Canned drinks and other foodstuffs are stored in warehouses and containers that are usually infested with rodents, and then they get transported to retail outlets without being properly cleaned.

This day is very special to me 1st, it was my son (Ysaiah Yves Ysrael) was born July 17, 1995, in FEU Hospital, Morayta, Manila. 2nd , this will be my 100 posts for this site. While I was writing this blog my sister in law texted me that classes today was suspended due to signal no. 2 in NCR. (let me share a letter I made for him 14 years ago)

Dear Yves,

When you were born two days ago, I've realized that life was so beautiful,

a miracle,

it was wonderful

and magical.

When you opened your eyes,

it was full of sunshine,

and our heart was filled with smiles



we are watching you.

Sleep now my child

and stay with us

not only for a dream

but forever.

Karpintero itong si Juan at isang araw eh gumagawa siya
ng isang bahay sa tabi ng ilog.
Sa lakas ng pagmamartilyo niya eh nalaglag ang martilyo
niya sa ilog.

Umiyak siya at lumitaw ang Guardian Angel niya.
"tutulungan kita Juan" sabay lundag sa ilog. Umahon ito at
hawak ng ang "Golden Hammer" "Ito ba ang martilyo mo?
"Hindi po", sagot ni Juan. Lundag ulit ang Guardian Angel
at paglitaw ay may hawak namang "Silver Hammer" ito ba?
...Hindi po! Lundag ulit ang "angel" at pag litaw ay may
hawak na itong "Ordinary Hammer" "ito ba? ..."Opo!"
Natuwa ang anghel. " Dahil honest ka, bukod sa martilyo mo
ay ibibigay ko na rin sa iyo pareho ang Golden at Silver hammer!

Makaraan ang ilang araw, naglalakad si Juan sa may ilog
at kasama ang Misis niya. Eh sa hindi inaasahang pangyayari,
nalaglag si Misis sa ilog...iyak si Juan
Litaw si guardian Angel, "tutulungan kita"
...sabay lundag sa ilog at ng lumitaw eh kasama si...
Jennifer Lopez,

"ito ba ang misis mo ?" ... sagot si Juan,
"Opo"...Nagalit ang anhel, Sinungaling ka,
akala ko pa naman ay mabait ka!"

Nag-reason si Juan, "sorry po Angel...
kasi pag sinabi kong hindi, eh lulundag ka ulit
sa tubig at paglitaw mo kasama mo si Britney Spears.

At pag sinabi ko uli na hindi siya ang asawa ko,
eh lulundag ka uli at ang tunay na Misis ko na ang kasama mo.
At dahil sa kabaitan ko, eh ibibigay mo din sa akin
sina Jennifer at Britney.

Mahirap lang po ako at hindi ko kaya ang me tatlong asawa,
kaya 'Yes' na lang ang sinagot ko nung una.

Moral of the story:
Kaya lang naman nagsi-sinungaling ang mga lalaki,
Eh, for a good and noble reason.

A Good Story

"This one was email by a friend, it was a good stuff so i'm sharing it with you"

The man slowly looked up. This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life. Her coat was new. She looked like she had never missed a meal in her life. His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so many others had done before. "Leave me alone," he growled... To his amazement, the woman continued standing. She was smiling -- her even white teeth displayed in dazzling rows. "Are you hungry?" she asked. "No," he answered sarcastically. "I've just come from dining with the president. Now go away." The woman's smile became even broader.

Suddenly the man felt a gentle hand under his arm. "What are you doing, lady?" the man asked angrily. "I said to leave me alone. Just then a policeman came up. "Is there any problem, ma'am?" he asked... "No problem here, officer," the woman answered. "I'm just trying to get this man to his feet. Will you help me?"
The officer scratched his head. "That's old Jack. He's been a fixture around here for a couple of years. What do you want with him? "See that cafeteria over there?" she asked. "I'm going to get him something to eat and get him out of the cold for awhile." Are you crazy, lady?" the homeless man resisted. "I don't want to go in
there!" Then he felt strong hands grab his other arm and lift him up. "Let me go, officer,I didn't do anything." "This is a good deal for you, Jack," the officer answered. "Don't blow it."

Finally, and with some difficulty, the woman and the police officer got Jack into the cafeteria and sat him at a table in a remote corner. It was the middle of the morning, so most of the breakfast crowd had already left and the lunch bunch had not yet arrivedThe manager strode across the cafeteria and stood by his table. "What's going on here, officer?" he asked. "What is all this is this man in trouble?" "This lady brought this man in here to be fed," the policeman answered. "Not in here!" the manager replied angrily. "Having a person like that here is bad for business." Old Jack smiled a toothless grin. "See, lady. I told you so. Now if you'll let me go. I didn't want to come here in the first place."

The woman turned to the cafeteria manager and smiled.. "Sir, are you familiar with Eddy and Associates, the banking firm down the street?" "Of course I am," the manager answered impatiently. "They hold their weekly meetings in one of my banquet rooms." "And do you make a goodly amount of money providing food at these weekly meetings?" "What business is that of yours?" I, sir, am Penelope Eddy, president and CEO of the company." "Oh." The woman smiled again. "I thought that might make a difference." She glanced at the cop who was busy stifling a giggle. "Would you like to join us in a cup of coffee and a meal, officer?" "No thanks, ma'am," the officer replied. "I'm on duty." "Then, perhaps, a cup of coffee to go?" "Yes, ma'am. That would be very nice." The cafeteria manager turned on his heel, "I'll get your coffee for you right away, officer." The officer watched him walk away. "You certainly put him in his place," he said. "That was not my intent. Believe it or not, I have a reason for all this." She sat down at the table across from her amazed dinner guest

She stared at him intently. "Jack, do you remember me?" Old Jack searched her face with his old, rheumy eyes "I think so -- I mean you do look familiar." "I'm a little older perhaps," she said. "Maybe I've even filled out more than in my younger days when you worked here, and I came through that very door, cold and hungry."
"Ma'am?" the officer said questioningly. He couldn't believe that such a
magnificently turned out woman could ever have been hungry. "I was just out of college," the woman began. "I had come to the city looking for a job, but I couldn't find anything. Finally I was down to my last few cents and had been kicked out of my apartment.. I walked the streets for days. It was February and I was cold and nearly starving. I saw this place and walked in on the off chance that I could get something to eat." Jack lit up with a smile. "Now I remember," he said. "I was behind the serving counter. You came up and asked me if you could work for something to eat. I said that it was against company policy.." "I know," the woman said Then you made me the biggest roast beef sandwich that I had ever seen, gave me a cup of coffee, and told me to go over to a corner table and enjoy it. I was afraid that you would get into troubleThen, when I looked over, I saw you put the price of my food in the cash register I knew then that everything would be all right."

"So you started your own business" Old Jack said. "I got a job that very afternoon. I worked my way up. Eventually I started my own business that, with the help of God, prospered." She opened her purse and pulled out a business card. "When you are finished here, I want you to pay a visit to a Mr.. LyonsHe's the personnel director of my company. I'll go talk to him now and I'm certain he'll find something for you to do around the office." She smiled. "I think he might even find the funds to give you a little advance so that you can buy some clothes and get a place to live until you get on your feet. If you ever need anything, my door is always opened to you."

There were tears in the old man's eyes. "How can I ever thank you?" he said "Don't thank me," the woman answered. "To God goes the glory. Thank Jesus... He led meto you." Outside the cafeteria, the officer and the woman paused at the entrance before
going their separate ways"Thank you for all your help, officer," she said. "On the contrary, Ms. Eddy," he answered. "Thank you. I saw a miracle today, something that I will never forget. And...And thank you for the coffee."

This blog is not a scened from a prime time news but I'll just want to share this horrible story I experienced last Friday evening (June 5, 2009). Around 5:00 pm when my wife asked me through phone to fetched her in SM North so I leaved my two sons Yves (13) and York (10) in our house. I was early in the mall but luckily there was an on-going International 10-Balls Women Billiard Tournament (those ladies cue artist are really good) until my wife came then we proceed to National Book Store to buy some school supplies. After we buy all items on the list my wife phone my eldest son Yves to ask if he wants to add more but my son insist to talk to me.

So she gave me the cellphone and Yves talk to me in a mild manner but I sensed he was scared a little bit and told me " Daddy, may tao dito duguan dumaan sa bubungan natin at may hawak na kutsilyo." But before he continued the man grabbed the phone and said " Pare pasensiya ka na hindi ko gusto mangyari ito nagipit lang ako may humahabol sa akin." I was shocked but I have to deal with him. "Sino ka ba at bakit dyan sa bahay ko? Please lang huwag mong sasakltan ang mga anak ko" The man said "Walang mangyayari sa mga anak mo basta walang mangyayari sa akin." he answered back. Then I told him to calm down (but actually I was telling it to myself) in a diplomatic way I said to " hintayin mo ako dyan sa bahay at tutulungan kita." (Damned I can't believed I was into a hostage situation and it was my children)

So I grabbed my wife and told her " we have to go home now, there was an emergency situation in our house!" Of course my wife was already in a panic mode when I told her that our sons were taken as hostage. While inside the taxi we are both nervously assuming whats going on in our house. There are some worst scenarios that entered my mind but we have nothing to do but to hope and pray that there is no untoward incident happened there.Oh, the traffic seems to be forever so my wife keep on crying and shouting to the driver to hurry-up. Finally we reached our home and there was no kitbitzer (meron) around and that explained because rain was continuously pouring for almost a week now. Believed me it was the scariest moment of my life when I opened our door.When we saw our children watching TV there was a sign of relief to both of us. My wife hugged them while I was checking the man and found him in our kitchen still holding a knife and I noticed a gun tucked in his waist. When he saw me he apologised and asked for my forgiveness. I've told him to sit down (just to get his trust I have to listened to his stories) and I've learned the he was a former soldier (awol) and being chased by barangay tanod because he stabbed one of his drinking buddies, and in order to escape he ran into the rooftop all the way inside my house.

Just like what I promised him and after I've checked my sorrounding I told him he can go now. But before he do that he requested for a pair of slippers and an umbrella. (that son of a b____ don't want to soak in the rain) My only problem is how to fix my fiberglass roof of which he break in order to get in.I think I've learned something on an actual hostage crisis management.

I embraced my sons specially Yves (who happened to be diagnosed last week of a rare heart problem) and asked if they were alright? Proudly he said " Dad I remembered your instruction that in times of trouble I should be calm and focus". I've told him " you're such a smart and very brave!" and I am proud of you on how you take care of your younger brother and how to handled the situation".He smiled and said " No dad I'm not that brave I'm still scared of cockroaches".

Anong kaguluhan ito?!!

Pagkatapos ng magandang balita sa pagkakapanalo ni Pacquiao, Donaire at Villoria sa boxing na nagbigay sa atin ng magandang balita ay balik na naman tayo sa masamang impresyon sa ating mga Pinoy. Una, And "racial slurs or remark" ni Alec Baldwin ng Hollywood tungkol sa mail order bride sa Pilipinas.(nag-sorry na raw si Baldwin sa isyung ito.) Pero, bakit naman sa isang "noontime show" ay binababoy din ng mga contestant na bakla ang name ng ibang bansa. (hindi kaya balat-sibuyas lang tayo?)at hindi natin napapansin na mga pintasero din tayo sa iba, minsan pa nga sa mismong kababayan natin na mga Chinese at Bisaya ay inaaglahi natin..

Pangalawa: Medyo natawagan ako ng pansin sa isyu ng mga sex videos ni Hayden Kho. Out of curiousity bumili ako ng isang pirated tape just to prove kung genuine ito o hindi. Well, totoo nga at ito ang dahilan upang gamitin ito ni Bong Revilla para mamulitika at magkaruon ng aktibidad sa senado. Talaga yatang lipunan tayo ng mga mang-gagamit. Balik tayo sa isyu ng sex video, totoong naa-awa ako sa mga biktima ng pangyayaring ito bagamat kung pagbabasehan mo ang mga videos ay gusto rin naman nila ang kanilang ginagawa, ngunit dahil sa kumalat na ito at halos milyon na ang nakapanuod ano na ang mangyayari sa susunod na mga eksena? marahil may makakasuhan, ang iba mawawalan na ng "career" at pwede rin na lalo pa silang sumikat.
Ang nakaka-alarma lamang sa pangyayaring ito ay hindi na ito naging usapin ng mga matatanda pati mga bata ay pangkaraniwang na lamang sa kanila ang panooring ito sa mga cellphone na napakabilis naman na mai-download.
Masyado ng bumababa ang moralidad ng mga Pinoy o hindi pa lamang tayo handa sa ganitong pagbabago.

There is only one...Manny Pacquiao

Yesterday was the anticipated "The battle of East vs. West between Pacquiao - Hatton." As much as possible I've always watch boxing in the movie house dahil kinukunsumi talaga tayo ng mga TV ads who are wasting our time. Well 450 pesos is not bad at all dahil dahil you can watch the they watch it live in Las Vegas.

As usual it was a jampacked event dahil maraming mga Britons ang dumagsa sa Las Vegas kahit krisis sa economy. Well marami namang Pinoy duon na laging sumusuporta sa idolo natin. Siyempre ang sandamakmak na pulitiko sa atin na nagsayang naman ng pera ng bayan.

Well alam na ng lahat ang resulta at totoong nai-inggit tayo kay Pacman dahil kumita siya ng 3 milyon dolyares kada minuto sa laban na yun. Pero higit pa sa pera yung karangalan na maglalagay sa kanya sa hall of fame ng boksing sa Amerika.

Tigilan na natin ang pagpuna kay Martin Nievera sa pagiba niya ng tono sa ating Pambansang Awit, ang mahalaga ginawa niya ito ng bongga at ito ang uso sa Las Vegas di ba?

Mabuhay ka Pacquiao, at pinasaya mo na naman ang sambayanang hikahos sa buhay. Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

My last post was April 2 and today is May 2 already, before I knew it isang buwan na pala ang lumipas. Ano ba ang pinag-gagawa ko? Wait! do I owe to everybody an explanation? Of course naman, visiting one's blog site is time consuming lalo na pag mabagal internet mo. And one more thing is you already have an resposibility not only to your blogsmate but also to yourself too (to others blogging is also an on-line diary, so you should keep your diary updated)

Anyway I have a valid reason 'cause my computer was crash, so i have to bring it to my suking technician siyempre gastos na naman dahil I have to install another hard disk dahil puno ang dati.

Before I forgot, yesterday (May 1), was our 14th wedding anniversary. I was a cruel husband dahil nasa outing/seminar ako w/c we are not allowed to bring family member. We still afford to celebrate it when I got home in the evening.

Kahit kunti lang visitor ko sa blogsite ko, I'm really sorry guys!
And tomorrow I will watch Pacquiao-Hatton figth in SM.

Enjoy the weekend!!

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy speaks to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY.
He asks one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .
Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So you believe in GOD?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is GOD Good?
Student: Sure.
Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL?
Student: Yes.
Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't.
How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student is silent)
Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, Young Fella.
Is GOD Good?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Is Satan good?
Student: No.
Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From . . . GOD . . .
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Professor: So who created evil?
(Student does not answer)

Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who Created them ?
(Student has no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student: No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student: Yes.
Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student: No sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events)
Student: Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat...
But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero, which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat.
We cannot Measure Cold.
Heat is Energy.
Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.
(There is Pin - Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre)

Student: What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir.
Darkness is the Absence of Something
You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, and Flashing Light . . .
But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called
Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't.
If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.
You argue there is Life and then there is Death,
a Good GOD and a Bad GOD.
You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite,
Something we can measure.
Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought.
It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen,
Much less fully understood either one.
To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that
Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.
Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it.

Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shakes his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument is going )

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and
Cannot even prove that this Process is an On - Going Endeavor,
Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir?
Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class is in Uproar)

Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class breaks out into Laughter)

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it?
One appears to have done so.
So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable,
Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have No Brain, sir.
With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room is Silent. The Professor stares at the Student, his face unfathomable. )

Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it sir . . .
The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH.
That is all that Keeps Things Moving & Alive.

It turned out later that the student is Albert Einstein.

1922 - 2009

Maraming kuwento tungkol kay Francis Magalona ng siya ay pumanaw pero mas pinili ko ang taong ito, na kasabay niyang namatay nuong araw ding yaon. Si Tatang Arsenio ay katapat lang bahay ko at araw-araw ay nagkikita kami at naghuhuntahan sa halos 5 taon na pagkakatira ko sa lungsod Quezon, at sa tagal ng panahong iyon ay itinuring na niya akong anak at kaibigan.

Isang beterano nuong panahon ng pangalawang digmaan pan-daigdig. At katulad ng tipikal na beterano ay maraming rin siyang kwento tungkol sa pakikipag-tungalian nila sa mga Hapon (aka sakang) Nguni't mas madalas ay nakikinig siya sa mga kwento ko na ang karamihan naman ay hindi totoo. Sa madaling salita trip lang ng matanda ang may ka-kwentuhan.

Si Mang Arsenio ay nakapag-asawa ng siya ay desi-sais anyos pa lamang dahil sa may ka-gwapuhan at matangkad marami rin siyang naging babae at pamilya sa mahabang panahon na pananatili niya dito sa daigdig. Kumplikado ang buhay pag-ibig niya, namatay ang una niyang asawa, dalawa ang naging anak niya dito. Sa pangalawa ay hindi siya kasal ngunit lima ang naging anak nila. At sa pangatlo ay si Aling Juliana na biyuda rin sa unang asawa, wala silang anak dahil pareho na silang matanda ng panahon na sila ay magsama. Ikinasal sila nuong 1996 sa maramihang pagkakasal na ini-sponsor ng mga mahilig mamulitikang politiko.

Hanggan sa dumating ang panahon na pinahihirapan na siya ng iba't-ibang karamdaman dahil na rin marahil sa edad niyang mahigit otsenta anyos na. Naging suki siya sa pagamutan ng mga beterano ang Veterans Memorial Medical Center.
Isang araw bago pumanaw si Mang Arsenio ay naka-pirma pa siya duon sa malaking biyaya na matatanggap ng mga beterano, siyam ng libong dolyares na siya ring dahilan kung bakit nagdatingan 'yung marami niyang kamag-anak na hindi na niya nakikita sa napakatagal na panahon. Nang-ibalita ko ito sa kanya, ay pinalapit niya ako at may ibinulong sa akin, inakala ng iba na babalatuhan ako ng matanda pero hindi ko na sinabi sa kanila yung bilin at dito ko lang sasabihin at ito ang bilin niya "Bahala ka na sa mga halaman ko ha, hindi na siguro ako makakap-dilig pa."

Sa wakas ay natapos din ang mahabang lamay at inilibing siya sa Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Paalam Mang Arsenio, kaibigan, beterano at bayani.

Pagkatapos ng mahigit 25 taon ang mga sundalo na nasangkot sa pagkaka-paslang sa dating senador Ninoy Aquino ay napalaya na sa bisa ng ehekutibong klemensiya na ibinigay ng Pangulong Arroyo. Dalawa lamang naman ang reaksyon ang Tumutol at ang Sumang-ayon. Sa mga tumutol siyempre kabilang na ang pamilyang Aquino sa pangunguna ni Noynoy at Kris. Sabi ni Senador NoyNoy, dapat ay humingi ng tawad sa kanila ang mga sundalo.(na para bang sigurado siya na may kinalaman ang mga ito sa konsperasiyang ito.) Si Kris naman ay pa-showbiz effect sa panunumbat at paiyak-iyak pang sinabi na nawalan daw siya ng Ama sa mahabang panahon.( Hay, naku Kris napaka-swerte mo nga sa lahat ng nawalan ng ama, dahil naging presidente ang nanay mo, naging senador ang kuya mo at naging showbiz host at artista ka na nagkamal ng pera at lalake.)

In fairness sa mga sundalo, ako bilang isa naniniwala na walang kinalaman ang mga ito. Sa aking pag-aaral at pagtatanong kadalasan kapag may operasyon ang mga kasundaluhan hindi naman talaga ibinibigay sa kanila ang detalye ng kanilang mga superyor. Mahirap makulong, ang iba nga diyan isang linggo pa lang nakukulong inaamin na na siya daw ang pumatay kay Jose Rizal, marahil kung may katotohanan ang bintang sa kanila ay may umamin na dito sa hirap ng pagkakakulong ng 25 taon.

Ang totoo tuwing ini-interbyu ang mga sundalong ito duon sa kulungan ay nadudurog ang puso ko sa pagka-awa sa kanila at sa kanilang mga pamilya. Naglingkod sa bayan ang mga ito at alam natin na mga fallguys lang ang mga ito. Dapat pa nga ay bayaran ang nawalang mga taon sa kanila.

Sa pamilyang Aquino marahil ang isang opsiyon dito ay muling buksan ang kaso at tumutok naman tayo sa posibilidad na si Galman talaga ang pumatay dahil sa pinatunayan naman ito ng isa sa pinakamahusay na forensic expert natin na kumakailan lang ay naglabas ng resulta sa mahaba niya pagsasaliksik. (hindi tulad nuon na halos lahat ay naniwala sa hakahaka na patay na si Galman bago pa pinatay si Aquino.)

Yun nga lamang ay medyo malabo ng matukoy kung sino talaga utak dito. Marahil ay patay na lahat ang mga pangunahing kasangkot sa krimen na ito na nagpabago sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas. Katulad din ng kaso ni JFK ng Amerika, masakit din ito sa kanila pero sabi nga sa palasak na kasabihan sa englis "We have to move on.")

Sulyap sa EDSA

Nuong Pebrero 25, 2009 ay muling ipinagdiwang ang "People Power" sa Edsa at sa pagkakataong iyon ay medyo kumpleto na ang cast ng mga pangunahing personahe tulad ni Enrile, Honasan at Ramos. Pero hindi pa rin mapapasubalian na ito ay nilangaw dahil na rin naman wala ng interes na pumunta rito ang mga mamamayan na ginamit ng simbahan at mga politiko nuon. Siyempre wala si Cory Aquino, dahil hanggan ngayon ay galit-galit pa rin sila. At mula nuon ay naging tatlo-bente sinko na ang "People Power". Sa aking personal na pananaw ay wala naman talagang "People Power" na nagpapabagsak sa Gobyernong gusto nilang palitan. Lahat ng ito ay nagtatagumpay lamang kapag bumabaliktad ang militar. Kaya kapag walang hindi nakialam ang militar walang patutunguhan ang "People Power". Tama lang na hindi ito siputin ni GMA dahil lumilikha lang ito ng pagkabaha-bahagi sa mga Pilipino. Sana ay tigilan na ang pagdiriwang sa okasyong ito ng people power dahil hindi naman nakakabuti sa kabuuan ng sambayanang Pilipino, at nagiging dahilan pa ito ng hindi paghilom ng sugat dahil sa walang kwentang pulitika na ang gustong mangyari ay umikot na lamang ang mundo natin sa kanila.

And the Oscar best picture ....

The 81st Oscar award was almost finish when I catch its live telecast here yesterday. It was a different set-up the host is not a comedian like Billy Crytalls and Whoope Goldberg. It was Hugh Jackman who played Wolverine from the X-MEN movie.
I don't know if it's the first time that a husband and wife was both nominated in Best Actor and Best Actress category? but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is not that lucky but the couples are awesome isn't it? Kate Winslet what can I say? I already predicted that she's gonna win the Best Actress and i guess everybody was expecting it. and the big surprise is ...

Come to think of it the film was done outside Hollywood on a shoe-string budget. With no big star in fact those kids who appear in the movie was not actors and actresses in Mumbai, India. I salute the director and producer of the film for their passion. Now who say that Oscar was only for those who have money and big star?

She spent the first day packing her belongings into
boxes, crates and suitcases.

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit. Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls. Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.
The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back.
Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day. She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home.........And to spite the ex-wife, they even took the curtain rods!!!!!! I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

I finally change my blog name from IMPOSTOR to Y. Maybe I'm tired of being an impostor and I need a little make over for my blog site. Why Y? for the simple reason that it start with name Ysrael and maybe it could answer all the Y's in this world.

On February 14, 2009 my wife and I will celebrate our marriage vows and it was exactly 14 years when we promised each other the classic line's " till death do us part." Since then my wife always ask me the same question she asked 13 years ago " Why did I love her? and I always answered " Because you love me."

But we are not the issue here, yesterday I watch the Oprah show and it's features a young pinay singer named Charice. Oprah staff documented Charice trip to Madison Square in New York to meet her Idol Celine Dion and the rest is history. When I watch the video footage of Celine and Charice duet the song "Because You Love Me" the audience went wild, everybody was standing as they watching and hearing the two rendered that classic song. The sight was so moving that it gives me a thousand goosebumps. Maybe I was too proud of Charice because of her triumph and the fact that she is a Pinay who give us a pride as a Filipino. And Celine was so humble quite a diva. Check this out!

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.' One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who died too early on this earth.

Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive. Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job

Isn't it too beautiful not to share?

I really don't know if the term "Late ender" is existed or not. The truth is I intent to post a year-ender blog but laziness kill my motivation (too bad for a new year ha!) but I'm not lazy actually I was too occupied with many things that blogging becomes the less priorities. Pardon me but I have to looked back and reviewed what happened to me last year. Obviously I committed more mistakes, blunders,than a good decision. (Luckily no one thrown a pair of shoes at me) Now this year I have to regroup, plans,and more focus.
39 posted blog and 15 drafts not bad for a rookie bloggers ( I maintain 2 other blogs in 2 different blog site, 1 photo/video blog, and 1 scrabble blog)
And the best thing is I have some on-line friends and commenters who support you all the way even I don't meet them personally.
