Support Earth Hour

"Earth Hour in the Mind of 3 Years Old"

I was a bit surprised that our 3-year-old son, Rap shrieked when he saw the gigantic cut-out Styrofoam-board of 60 inside SM Mall Davao last week. He shouted, "ah! Mom, please take a picture of me on Earth Hour!". My husband and I were wondering how this little 3-year old knew about the Earth hour. He even recited, "Let's support Earth hour on March 26, 2011 from 8:30 to 9:30 pm...".. Huh? I know we have lots of button pins of Earth Hour last year, because the Dole Mountaineering Club sponsored the local Earth Hour campaign last year. But he's too young at that time to remember. 

But when went back to our hotel, he hurriedly grabbed the TV remote control and watched. Nickelodeon. That's when we realize how he had known the complete details of this year's  Earth Hour campaign.

Earth Hour is About...

It's not about you, nor me... It's all about the place we live in.Let's support Earth Hour. If you wanted your future kids to live and enjoy same (or wishing to be better) Earth as we have now? Participate in turning off your electric supply for just an hour. Don't bother to miss an episode of your favorite TV show. After all, it's just an episode. You can save years on the life of our mother Earth.

~The Making Of A Mother ~

~The Making Of A Mother ~
inspiring mother stories

By the time the Lord made mothers, He was into the sixth day working overtime.  An Angel  appeared and said "Why are you spending so much  time on this one?"

And the Lord answered and  said, "Have you read the spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not elastic; have 200 movable parts, all replaceable; run on black coffee and leftovers; have a lap that can hold three children at one time and that disappears when she stands up; have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart; and have six pairs of hands." 
The Angel was astounded at the requirements for this one. "Six pairs of hands! No way!"  said the Angel.

The Lord replied, "Oh, it's not the hands that are the problem.  It's the three pairs of eyes that mothers must have!" 

"And that's on the standard model?" the Angel asked.

The Lord nodded in agreement, "Yep, one pair of eyes are to see through the closed door as she asks her children what they are doing even though she already knows. Another pair in the back of her head are to see what she needs to know even though no one thinks she can. And the third pair are here in the front of her head.  They are for looking at an errant child and saying that she understands and loves him or her without even saying a single word."

The Angel tried to stop the Lord  "This is too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I can't!" The Lord protested, "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself  when she is sick AND can feed a family of six on a pound of hamburger and can get a nine year old to stand in the shower." 

The Angel moved closer and touched the woman, "But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?" asked the Angel. 

The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason, and negotiate."

The Angel then noticed something and reached out and touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like You have a leak with this model. I told You that You were trying to put too much into  this one."

"That's not a leak." the Lord objected.  "That's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the Angel asked. 

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her disappointment, her pain, her loneliness, her grief, and her pride."  

The Angel was impressed.  "You are a genius, Lord.  You thought of everything for this one.  You even created the tear!"

The Lord looked at the Angel and smiled and said, "I'm afraid you are wrong again.  I created the woman, but she created the tear!"

Thanks Sir Jef (Minandang) for passing the story to me... I kind of appreciate more being a woman and a mom! = )

I will miss you po and the KCC family...

The Husband Store ...

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE!

You may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the Building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. .

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign

Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she
goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor.
This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

If women ruled the world!

more on hilariously funny heckle about women but may we (as women) would totally nod along on about 60% of these listed ironies below... again, thanks to my best friend Bhel for passing along... no violent reactions please = )
PMS would be a legitimate defense in court. 

Men would get reputations for sleeping around. 

Singles bars would have metal detectors to weed out men hiding wedding rings in their pockets. 

A man would no longer be considered a "good catch" simply because he is breathing. 

Fewer women would be dieting because their ideal weight standard would increase by 40 pounds. 

Shopping would be considered an aerobic activity. 

"Ms." Magazine would have an annual swimsuit issue featuring scantily clad male models. 

Men would not be allowed to eat gas-producing foods within two hours of bedtime.  

Men would be secretaries for female bosses, working twice as hard for none of the credit.. 

Little girls would read "Snow White and the Seven Hunks" 

Men would earn 70 cents for every dollar women made. 

Men would bring drinks, chips and dip to women watching soap operas. 

Men would HAVE to get Playboy for the articles, because there would be no pictures. 

Men would learn phrases like: "I'm sorry", "I love you", "You're beautiful", "Of course you don't look fat in that outfit." 

Men would be judged entirely by their looks, women by their accomplishments.

Men would sit around and wonder what WE are thinking. 

Men would pay as much attention to their woman as to their car. 

All toilet seats would be nailed down. 

Men would work on relationships as much as they work on their careers. 

TV news segments on sports would never run longer than 1 minute. 

All men would be forced to spend one month in a PMS simulator 

During mid-life crisis, men would get hot-flashes and women would date 19 year olds. 

Overweight men would have their weight brought to their attention constantly. 

After a baby is born, men would take a six-week paternity leave to wait on their wives hand and foot. 

For basic training, soldiers would have to take care of a two-year olds for six weeks.

Men & Women Differences

Here's another funny story about differences of men and women:

  • A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs
  • A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need because it's on sale.
  • A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from a hotel.
  • The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 481. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
  • A woman has the last word in any argument.
  • Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
  • If Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara go out for lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara.
  • If Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom go out, they will very likely affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy
  • When the bill arrives, Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom are more likely to each throw in a $20, even though it's only for $32.50.None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want the change back.
  • When the women get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

  •  Women love cats.
  • Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
  • A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
  • A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife
  • A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
  • A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
  • A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
  • A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.
  • A woman will dress up to go 4 shopping, to water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, and read the mail.
  •  A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
  • Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
  • Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
  • Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods,secret fears and hopes and dreams.
  • A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
  • Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.
Again, the author is unknown.  I know the differences have been blown out of proportion, but they are funny and somehow reflect some reality for some people.

thanks bhel for this email = )

Why Men Die First

Another hilarious but a bit factual stuff about men and their women...

Why do men die first?

This is a question that has gone unanswered for centuries...... but, now we know.

If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat're a male chauvinist.
If you stay home and do the're a pansy.

If you work too hard...there's never any time for her.
If you don't work're a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay...this is exploitation.
If you have aboring repetitive job with low should get off your lazy behind and find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her.....that is favoritism.
If she gets a job ahead of's equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she's sexual harassment.
If you keep's male indifference.

If you're a wimp.
If you don''re an insensitive bastard.

If you make a decision without consulting her......... you're a chauvinist.
If she makes a decision without consulting you...... she's a liberated woman.

If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy....... that's domination.
If SHE asks's a favor.

If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear...... you're a pervert.
If you don''re gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in're sexist.
If you don''re unromantic.

If you try to keep yourself in're vain.
If you don''re a slob.

If you buy her're after something.
If you don''re not thoughtful.

If you're proud of your achievements........ you're full of yourself.
If you don''re not ambitious.

If she has a headache............she's tired.
If you have a don't love her anymore.

If you want it too're oversexed.
If you don't..........there must be someone else.

Men die first because they want to.

All About Women I

Here's a funny story sent by my best friend Bhel, about Women... Read along...

What is the difference between girls aged: 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68? 
Yes, this is politically incorrect, but hope you appreciate the humor!

At 18 - You tell her a story and take her to bed. 

At 28 - You don't need to tell her a story to take her to bed. 

At 38 - She tells you a story and takes you to bed. 

At 48 - You tell her a story to avoid going to bed. 

At 58 - You stay in bed to avoid her story. 

At 68 - If you take her to bed, that'll be a story!!

Movie Review: The Illusionist

2006's movie "The Illusionist"

Last night, I was dead bored; I tried browsing through our laptops' folders. I thought of watching few past episodes of Glee (whom Dr. Doogie Houser, MD was a guess actor). Funny, I never remembered the actors name name who played Dr. Houser, but I clearly remembered the show.  As well as those actors from "Wonder Years" and "Ally Mcbeal"; I have known the actors because of what show I first saw them, lol.

1997's Box Office Love story hit, "Titanic"
But as I was half way watching re-runs of Glee, my boredom grew. So I tried opening the file Illusionist. Thinking that the film is a suspense driven film plotted on early century days, (which obviously shows the actors outfit), I have convinced my self that I am prepared to be scared. And   As far as I remembered, the file was in our laptop for a year already but I am not fond of scary movies that I didn't even take a time to open it.  But I did watch it anyway...

All Time Favorite Romantic Movie, "Somewhere in Time"
As the movie started, it didn’t even stimulate my feelings yet. Not until I understood the flow of the story. I never thought, it be a wonderfully, unique and astonishing love story. Not of typical, booing, and irky vampire-human love story like “Twilight”.

The Illusionist is one of the most delicate but wonderfully love tale twist I have ever seen in my life (Of course next to Christopher Reeves and Jan Seymour’s “Somewhere in Time” and Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet) .  If it should have been promoted well same ad exposure to lame teeny buffer movies like Twilight, it must have gained more audiences more than if “Titanic”.

Overrated but lame Vampire Movie "Twilight"
 The characters were perfectly portrayed, Eisenheim’s character was adoringly matches of real magician’s trait (like of real magicians like David Blaine and our local Erik Mana). Jessica Biel whom I fondly recall her teenage years at 7th Heaven as Pastors 2nd eldest child, was convincingly portrayed a real royal socialite duchess. Meanwhile,  Paul Giamatti  plausibly rendered an innocent, dignified but intelligent officer as  Police Officer Uhl. On the other hand, Rufus Sewell dignified a villain’s role. The ensemble, story, plot, lights, costumes, and the dialogues were flawlessly presented. I was just a bit confused about the magician and the orange tree which disappeared for no reason. I was so dismayed I wasn’t able to watch it on big screen. 

Famous Modern day Illusionist, David Blaine
The Illusionist was wholly and rightly researched and inspired by true accounts in Austrian and European history.  The Characters of Eisenheim and Prince Leopold was inspired by film director Sergei Eisenstein (1898–1948) as the real life first Illusionist (but actually direcor, when film was not yet known), and crown prince Franz Joseph I of Austria.  The crown prince also committed suicide, right after he killed his mistress, which sparked controversy on the late royal empire of Austria. Same tragedy, and media attention ex-General Angelo Reyes suicide and corruption accusations controversy.  

Controversial Suicide of Gen. Angelo Reyes
 In our local dialect, I would say that “The Illusionist” is astig

 I’ll rate it  9 out of 10.

Just Another Date

Last week, circumstances have never been a friend to me. I nearly had a nervous break down. I guess it was may be twice or third time in my entire life that I felt so deeply depressed and frustrated. 

Luckily, Dad is supportive of my ordeal at that time. I can’t even recognize from what is right to wrong, can’t distinguish what is reasonable from what was not, can’t think straight for what should be the proper reaction and what not suitable response was, and what must be justifiable reasoning to what is unacceptable. It’s more than a hard day for me. Given, that in line with our family blood; we have history of manic, panic and schizophrenia conditions. Thank God I have a loving husband to understand and care for me. I would suddenly catch from crying spell out of nowhere, even when I am just walking or sitting alone. My office mates could tell that something’s wrong with me. I walk as if I float and was not aware if I bump with someone. 

Dad has always been a hero. He comes to the rescue when in times like these. After his tedious and tiring work; he went to our office and he treated me out for a date. Even without talking, he eased the pain that I felt. We hang out at Robinson’s food court and waited for me to post an FB shout out. Then, after we had dinner, we watched “Season of the Witch”.  Though, I did not fully appreciate the plot as well as the movie spills which how the story goes, it kid of entertained us a bit. We rather watched “Tangled” instead.

Anyway, thanks Dad. It meant a lot when you stayed by my side.

My heart is crushed but it still my spirit is fighting. It's because I have my Dad and Raph by my side.

Mind versus Heart versus Ego

‘These past few days is the most dreaded and depressing days of my life.

Expectations… Once you didn’t meet them, you feel awfully sick.
You lower your standards… and you still weren’t able to get what you expect… you feel so horribly down.

I had a manic depression attack. Yes, I admit it. I honestly say that I am weak. I could not stand feeling defeated and lost. I am used to achieving and receiving recognition and respect that I deserve. But I didn’t receive the treatment that I deserve. It’s so frustrating that I am rapidly losing my value as a professional.

I felt hell… I felt more that blurry yellow… I felt terribly awful… I felt like crying the whole day.. .I felt like loosing my sanity… I felt degraded…

I lost myself for a moment… weep

My Kung Hei Fat Choi Resolution

My Kung Hei Fat Choi Resolution

Well, well, well… 2010 passed.. Welcomes 2011.. Again, another New Year celebration by our Chinese brothers. Last December 31, 2010, before 12Midnight strikes, I wrote the following lists as to my new stuffs to do and to give up this 2011. Though it started with a very long list, but I manage to trim it down to fewer easier ones = )

1.   No soda for all the days of 2011
2.   Do good at my job and whatever task I had committed (but lately, I kind of so depressed with what had happened at work. ‘Tell you about this some other time)
3.   Regular quiet time (so tough to keep this with all the negativity and too much work to do)
4.   Save at least PhP1, 000.00 every month to Rap’s savings account (I hardly can’t save 500 a month, sigh)
5.   Organize dad and Rap’s birthday climb this year
6.   Pay the remaining PhP7, 000.00 we owe from Mamang Nena
7.   At least  2 blogs a week (too hard to keep up with my interest to write and my schedule)

I do hope I can keep up with this list. These resolutions are harder than I thought.

This is Not My Day!

I am earlier than I thought, but it turned out I arrived at exactly 9AM. I am about to punch my time card (for some unreasonable grounds that I am still not allowed to use the finger scanner log-in) when I can’t find my DTR card! It took me about 30 seconds to look for it. An inconsiderate and unorganized co-employee has used my time card slot. Then when I finally found my card and about to punch my DTR, guess what? It’s already 9:01AM! What a day it is. sigh

Another worst situation today, is that I have an inconsiderate office mate. Everyone knows I am in deep shit these past few days; he annoyingly threw me with inconvenient jokes which pushed me to my limits. Patience… I lost you again. Why won’t you stay permanently in my heart, mind and soul? What will I do to have you?

Worst Interview Questions I Flunked Answering!

'Spent more than 8 hours a day on this work space'

 Actually, job interviews are not really hard questions. They are just questions with which either relates with what you wrote on your resume or basically questions that just exemplify your character as a worker and as a person.
Common questions during interviews (which I easily and impressively persuade interviewer, brag brag brag lol) are:

*      ‘Tell me something about yourself.’ Or ‘Describe yourself’
*      ‘What is/are your strength/s’, followed by ‘Your weakness’
*      ‘If we’ll hire you, what would you do with the company’ or other interviewers may ask ‘What is your edge against other applicants’ or tactfully statement may vary like ‘What would you offer the company’
*      ‘Why would you like to work with our company’ or ‘How did you know about the company and the vacancy’
*      If it’s not your first job, most likely interviewer will be curious, asking you ‘Why did you left your former company’
*      ‘Have you been in the situation where you have hard time dealing with your boss or co-worker or may be a friend or a family member ’, testing if you are a anti-social person, harhar. Be careful in answering his. Or best, if you have had past difficult times with difficult people; just pretend that you hadn’t ever experienced it in your entire existence
*      And more!...
I easily responded to those questions without a wink! Those were easy for me not until the following questions were asked from me few weeks ago. It was a disgrace!
First: An interview with my background investigator. Aside the fact that the  our company’s private investigator had hard time setting schedule for my interview, I was damn bored with his background check questions. (like who’s my father, mom, my siblings and their spouses’ names- I don’t even know their real first names!, etc.). Then suddenly a familiar but unanswerable question popped out on my investigator’s mouth: ‘Who is your best friend at work?
‘Oh, God! (I had few moments of silence) This is an easy question but I am not able to answer.’
Again the investigator asked me, he must be thinking I wasn’t able to hear him.
So, I hurriedly answered him any name then. I thought of Silver’s name. The most silent and proper gal in the MIS Tech office. She may probably not mind if I’d use her name as my best friend. After the interview, I can’t still get over with that question. A lot of questions lingered on my mind as I ride on a bus going home. Why didn’t attached myself to my new co-workers? Why did I suddenly stop having one true best friend? Am I traumatized with my past close friend? oes Silver Mae consider me as a good friend?... And the questions goes on….
Another tough question I had ever heard was:

During an interview for my regularization, a question which I never thought would be asked by our company president

'26 Years from now, and your son is getting married in a few minutes; As the mother of the groom, what would the legacy in form of advice would you want to share to your son?'

Darn it! I lost it! I blew the one question which I may possibly impress our company president! I totally flunk to grab the once in a life time chance to have a face to face talk to a person like him, but I blew it off! It was a damn hard beauty contest-like question. However I confidently answered from my heart,
            ‘I would hug my son and tell him that I love him and he I am not really asking him to be rich and to be materialistically successful, just enough to be a good Chritian and live a simple life doing everything in God’s glory; the way we (his dad nad I) raised him… ’
But, sadly, Mr. President was not satisfied with my answer. He rephrased the questions and stated example of advices himself. He wanted me to assume that all my future dreams were already accomplished and I have to boast it to my son as an example. I get his point but I was afraid that I would be looking like a too mended-air headed, boisterous and too pre-assuming mom in that case. I told him respectfully,  ‘I can’t,  I would totally sound so-pre-assuming if I would do that. Unlike you, you are already an accomplished person, so it is easy to be proud of your won true accomplishment…’ 

Then he told me to just have confidence. He then followed up more questions regarding on what I wrote at my resume. The interview was over but not me thinking (‘till now!) about the beauty-contest-like question. 

More depressing, a co-worker was also asked same question and he is proud that he answered it satisfyingly. Hays, asar. Feeling ko ang bobo ko tuloy! I had faced and talked tomost of our country’s  prominent people from government and other private companies like Ping de Jesus, former Sen. Salonga, Sen. Loren Leagarda, and even businessman tycoon Henry Sy… but I had never tongue-tied like that before!

If you are to be asked with that question? How would you answer it?  = (

I Feel... Yellow

Connect Yellow With… My Amarillo

I am definitely not Pro-Cory, though I am deeply saddened when she passed away. And I am a bit fan of Kris' annoying tactlessness (a thief hates another thief ey? lol); it’s not enough to say that I liked yellow then; nor because of my jaundice skin. Yellow, since the Bio Man days, I feel like Yellow 4 perfectly fits my description. (Those who do not know about what I am mumbling about, never mind; Panahon ko’to hehehe). Another reason why I love the color yellow is the bright color which makes me happy (instead of pink and purple?! I find these colors as too girly for me which I have hard time pulling clothes in these shades). For me Yellow glows that it draws a happy and gleeful mood on me. Whenever things are not going my way, I’ll just wear something yellow or eat something yellow (like mango or cheese ice cream with pancakes? Mmmp, sarap!). Everything will be fine

But have you ever heard the idiom, “I feel yellow”? People who I heard say this phrase is too darn down to be jolly and too stubborn to be with. Totally the opposite of how I thought I knew yellow.

The day I Felt a Different Shade of Yellow

 Have you ever felt once in your life too sad and too depress that you think no one will be able to cheer you up and no body will ever understand how you feel? It’s to damn stressful. The feeling is totally unexplainable. All you did was cry; shed a tear and a long silence.

This is how I felt a different Yellow. I feel feverish Yellow. Unusual color shade of color Yellow. I feel yellowish….
