Happy Mother's Day to All our Moms!


Mothers Day is a special day for honoring Mothers throughout the world.  

The “Ber” Months Are Here!


In just a few more days we will be into the "BER" season once again.




Time flies so really fast. So here we go again, counting down the days till Christmas Day. 


Despite the hard times we have gone through, we still remain hopeful of a cheerful Christmas celebration comes December.

It's not surprising to know that we, Filipinos, have the longest Christmas season in the world.

Speaking of the "BER" months, as early as September, we start to hear Christmas music on the radio, Christmas tunes playing at the shopping malls, restaurants, and buses.
 

We also start seeing street children caroling inside the jeepneys with a disclaimer: "Ate, Kuya...ayaw lang hugawa inyong mga huna-huna..dili mi mga dautang tawo...igo ra mi manganta...here we go...music please...manaygonay lang kami sa dalan sa highway, sabta lang tawon mi ninyo mga ate ug kuya, dili mi parehas sa uban , mang isnatch, mangawat, tinarong ning amoa..."

The department stores will get busier 
on the early part of the "Ber" months and becomes more lively after the 'kalag-kalag' or All Souls Day where they have to make more shelf space available for the upcoming holiday 'sale' displays.

And since September is just around the corner, let me be the first person to say Merry Christmas to all!

The Filipino spirit is WATERPROOF in the midst of CRISIS


I was really touched and inspired by the Filipinos unwavering spirit and resilience despite the crisis.




The spirit of Bayanihan was pretty much evident during the recent deadly floods in Manila and nearby areas as netizens used the power of internet to organize relief and rescue operations and give flood updates.

While there was no sign of rain to stop, the Ayala Museum also did a very nice and brilliant idea sending one line message of encouragement on victims of severe flooding via their Twitter account and official Facebook page, "The Filipino spirit is waterproof." 


In just a few moments, the online community began submitting their inspiring artworks and messages.

DBM: Beware of TEXT SCAMS


The Department of Budget and Management posted on their website on Monday that a text message circulating in the country announcing winners to an alleged DBM raffle. The advisory added that the DBM does not hold raffle draws, promos, or other similar contests and asked SMS recipients to disregard the text messages instead report the incidents to the concerned government agencies.








Here's the full DBM advisory courtesy of Department of Budget and Management (Philippines)

It has come to our attention that scammers claiming to be representatives of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) are sending text messages announcing winners to an alleged DBM raffle. The messages usually require the recipient to contact a specific number or send a reply to claim his/her prize.
Please be advised that the DBM does not hold raffle draws, promos, or other similar contests. The DBM is a government agency that oversees public fund expenditure for the National Government. As such, the DBM does not engage in commercial and promotional activities, nor does it contact individual members of the public via SMS.
The public is advised to disregard text messages purportedly sent by the DBM and other government departments and agencies. Furthermore, we urge scam victims or SMS recipients to report these incidents to the concerned department, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the National Bureau of Investigation to facilitate proper criminal action against the perpetrators.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Scam Alert: 'Noynoy Aquino Foundation' does not exist and P1 million raffle not true


A text message circulating in the country involving a program that gives cash to poor families in exchange for keeping their kids in school is totally a scam since the Noynoy Aquino Foundation does not exist and its raffle involving a prize of one million pesos is a hoax, warned Secretary Dinky Soliman of the DSWD.












According to Soliman, the 4P government program (Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program) is a human development program that provides conditional cash grants to extremely poor households to improve their health, nutrition and education particularly of children aged 0-14 and it does not hold any raffle draw giving away one million pesos and the existence of Noynoy Aquino Foundation is a hoax.

DSWD is encouraging recipients of the text message scam to report the details to Pantawid Pamilya Grievance Text Hotline-09189122813.

Don't be a Fool on April Fool's Day (April 1) (Watch Best Prank Video)



April Fools' Day is celebrated all around the world on the 1st day of April every year. It is not a legal holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day that tolerates practical jokes and general foolishness.






April Fool's Day is a "for-fun-only" observance. Pranks and practical jokes performed on this day range from a simple such as saying "Your zipper is open or there's a cut on your shirt" to an elaborate jokes that last the entire day like setting up a roommate's alarm clock back an hour. 

Whatever the prank, the trickster usually ends it by yelling to his victim, "April Fool!"

Well, it is simply a fun little holiday, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool! 

So, don't be surprise if you see the Facebook status of your friend that he or she's happily married or that he/she is finally engaged.

Happy April Fools’ Day!

Single and Happy on Valentines Day



Valentine’s Day isn't just for sweethearts exchanging flowers, cards, offering confectionery, and loving sentiments with warm feelings of admiration and affection. It is also a celebration of all the loves in our lives like our family and friends that touch our hearts.





Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days in a year. So, it is natural that we wish to celebrate this special day with somebody on a special and 
unique way. However, being SINGLE on V-Day with no dates in sight can induce feelings of being alone and worst, if you just recently came from a break up, I guess this is the day of grieving…huhu.. :-(

However, single men and women can still enjoy V-Day without worrying the pressures from their peers.

First, get out from your hard shell and go with people who do love you and care for you like your friends, officemates, classmates, yaya and family members. 

If you are fresh from a shattered relationship, do not pretend you are fine and OK. Express yourself, get advice, support and sympathy from your friends or somebody that you have trusted most. This is the best time for you to start to move on from what has been an incredibly distressing time.

Secondly, do not see yourself by your Facebook "relationship status". Normally, we feel self-conscious if our relationship statuses stuck in SINGLE for quite sometime, that’s why we are persuaded to change it to “it’s complicated” or even “in a relationship” or “engaged” just to satisfy our emptiness. 

Now, do you think this will help you free from your lonesomeness feelings? I think NO. Try to reflect and ask yourself why you feel that way before making any moves that are not necessary and ineffective. I would tell you that a "relationship status" is not your IDENTITY! It’s just a state of affairs. So, be proud of being single with more freedom on hand as you have the control of your time, money and of course no more emotional ups and downs. :-)

Single ladies and gentlemen, do what you love this Valentine's Day!

DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON! Earthquake safety tips



Drop, Cover, and Hold On can save lives and reduce your risk of death and injury. During earthquakes, drop to the floor, take cover under a sturdy desk hold on until the shaking stops.






The area near the exterior walls of a building is the most dangerous place to be. Windows, facades and architectural details are often the first parts of the building
to collapse. To stay away from this danger zone, stay inside if you are inside and outside if you are outside.

DROP down onto your hands and knees (before the earthquakes knocks you down). This position protects you from falling but allows you to still move if necessary.

COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk. If there is no shelter nearby, only then should you get down near an interior wall (or next to low-lying furniture that won't fall on you), and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.

Methods like standing in a doorway, running outside, and "triangle of life" method are considered dangerous and are not recommended. Drop, cover, and hold under a table or desk is still the best recommendation, according to the American Red Cross.

According to USGS, the "Triangle of Life" is a misguided idea about the best location a person should try to occupy during an earthquake. It is listed in the Urban Legends category on the Snopes Urban Legends Reference website.

2012 - Year of the Water Dragon (See famous DRAGON people)



Doomsday? End of the World? Disasters? Well, it's true that the ancient Hindu Kali Yuga and Mayan Calendars will end in 2012 but it doesn't necessarily mean it's also the end of time. Many were deceived by the sensational pessimistic prediction of Mayan cosmologies as linear rather than cyclical. According to Feng Shui, 2012, which is the year of the Water Dragon, brings many possibilities for good fortune and happiness.














The Year of the Dragon starts on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2013. Occupying the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. The energetic high point of the year is the dragon moon, which is from May 20 to June 18.

In ancient China, the celestial Dragon represents an emperor and power. It is the best time to get married and have children or start a business.

Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful.

Famous Dragon People: Al Pacino, Joan of Arc, Cliff Richard, Susan B. Anthony, Gregory Peck, Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Russell Crowe, Florence Nightingale, Nicolas Cage, Sigmund Freud, Nick Nolte, Mae West, Neil Diamond, Martin Sheen, Ringo Starr, Tom Jones, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, Keanu Reeves, Orlando Bloom, Elaine Paige, Colin Farrell, Shirley Temple and Sandra Bullock.

May the Water Dragon brings good luck to everyone.


Happy New Year to all!!
