Hmmmm

Yesterday, a fellow mommy blogger invited me and other mommy bloggers for her birthday treat at Big Flat Bread in Lim Ket Kai Mall. I was already very late as I forgot the time, but I had no choice but to take the jeepney since there was no taxi that passed by. It would have been faster and much more comfortable to combat the heat when in a rush on a taxi.


The Jeepney I rode was empty except for me and another passenger and the driver's assistant cum barker and cashier. Then I smelled the smoke coming from the driver himself as he was smoking while driving. I asked him politely to blow his smoke in another direction, but he simply ignored me. I transferred seats instead, but before I did, I took the photo above using my phone. I feel disappointed that in public transports, there is a No Smoking sign and there is a city ordinance that prohibits any driver or commuter to smoke, yet it is not being followed. Let alone, respected. Well, this is not the first actually. There are so many of them, inconsiderate, undisciplined fools who, not only act out their irresponsibility and destroy lives in the process, at the same time, being hard headed citizens with no regard for the law who proudly flaunt their stupidity by doing what they do.


The sad thing about these persons, they are the ones who complain a lot about the country being bad, the economy being bad, and the people around them reacting badly about their vices.. 



That's why, sometimes, I wouldn't really wonder why some people get shot in public.. it's either they have been bad or some bad people find them annoying..

Water

A Hindu teacher once taught his students the importance of water. Water to sustain life, and to heal people from diseases, if not prevent it. The student was confused at first, but believed his teacher when he said that drinking two glasses of water upon waking up help revitalize the senses as it helps activate internal organs. A glass of water taken thirty minutes before meal helps with digestion, and a glass of water before taking a bath lowers blood pressure. Now, if one is to avoid stroke and hearth attack, another glass of water will do the trick. And that's not included in the eight glasses a day water drinking protocol. If that is done religiously, no one will want to visit http://www.shoppharmacycounter.com/t-Adipex-Medicine.aspx anymore..

Excited?

My daughter is now trying to sleep for tomorrow is their first day of school. Unfortunately, she is not feeling comfortable for the sunburn on her back. We placed cooling powder and she's almost asleep now while I am still awake and in search of an offsite data protection. I still have some remaining tasks to finish before I call it a night, and I still have to sharpen their pencils, as I promised to do so. Waaah.. I am also excited for my daughter and baby brother. And tomorrow, I will need to look for some books that we were not able to buy yesterday. I am happy to report that I saved P 500 for the ten books I bought from United Bookstore, instead from the school. 

A new school year, new teachers, new challenges, new expenses.. Am I excited? I guess you could say that.. All these challenges are mine to hurdle too.

Offline

Totally out of the web for a day or so.. I was offline for a day and a half. And somehow, I felt it was forever. My Internet provider-- Sun Cellular sucks mucho! And my back up, SmartBro sucks too. I almost didn't make it to deadline, but thanks to some GWs, I was able to submit my finished tasks. Spent the day at the beach, but unfortunately for me, my cellphone as well as my camera died on me. No pictures, no nothing. It seemed that the world fell.. Hahaha.. But of course, when I was able to finish everything now that I am back here in the apartment, I feel alive again.

I am now officially ONLINE.. and I am thinking of changing Internet providers as well as back ups..

Social Medicine

Social Media came and we embraced it. Used it and some can't even live on a daily basis without it. Social medicine is about to become the next big thing after social media, did you know that. As much as doctors want to take advantage of social apps like Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, they arfe prevented from doing so because it  doesn't provide the level of security required by HIPAA, as well as verify their users. That means that anyone can pretend to be a doctor and misuse the system. However, a new app from the creators of Epocrates has now become the social medicine platform for physicians and healthcare workers. Doximity is a free app which has features  found in social networks, but with added layers of security and verification.  Doximity features perhaps the best database of physician profiles in the world which look more like doctor CV’s that show the doctor’s publications, clinical trials, board certifications, and much more. Here’s an example of Jeffrey Brinker, MD’s Doximity profile.

WOW..

I saw this really nice design of a child's room with every detail in place. I love the fact that there would not be a need for standsandmounts, as the bed is utilized for storage purposes, as well as its original purpose. If this is feasible in smaller spaces, I am sure I will be thinking of this design for one of the rooms here in the apartment. But then, I have also seen some disadvantages, considering that the place is only rented and not our own. Perhaps some alterations from this very design..

Where Will You Watch Pacquiao Vs Bradley?

I am sure everyone here is excited for this Sunday's game. Manny Pacquiao will take the ring versus Bradley. Will Manny Pacquaio win? Or will it be Bradley's triumph?


Anyway, I know some of you would like to watch Pacquiao Vs Bradley live, with family and friends. Some have subscribed already to PayPerView just to watch Pacquiao Vs Bradley, while others, will watch it some place else.. Here in Mindanao, each barangay have already prepared a place for the masses to watch. And those who can afford can go to restaurants and hotels to do so...

Rent A Book: Make A Difference

Have you heard about Operation Smile? From my short online research, I found out that this movement, Operation Smile, is actually an organization where children with cleft anomalies and deformities undergo a  life changing cleft lip surgeries. Said children are from families that could not otherwise afford the surgical process. This long term improvement in the children's quality of life are truly inspiring. Donations come from all over, and mostly from big companies and individuals who are known in the society. But who says that college students are not able to do that too? 

CampusBookRentals.com is actually a partner of Operation Smile. For every book rented, a portion of the fees go to Operation Smile. So that college students who patronize textbook rentals, are also donating for the said cause. They have also aside $90,000 in textbook scholarships that had been distributed to students in communities just like ours, so that underprivileged kids will have books to use. 

Here's a video of how textbook rentals work:

Here are some CampusBookRentals.com FAQ's too:

Now, I am even more excited to look for books like Sybil, and rent it. It's gonna be 40-90% cheaper than buying the book itself, plus I can highlight on some important facts in the book. I can enjoy a 30 day risk free return. Best of all, I get to donate to Operation Smile..

ColorKiddos Gives Hope to ColoRectal Kids in the Philippines

I am joining a contest! Lovingly, Mama! is holding a contest to increase awareness about kids born with anorectal defects.  Her niece was born with an imperforate anus. It is a birth defect without a known cause. Her sister-in-law Maricar has launched the movement/social enterprise called ColorKiddos in order to help children who are born with similar conditions and whose parents are incapable of financially supporting their kids through the three surgical procedures required, plus the many medical supplies and medicines needed until the child has fully recovered and  bowels fully working.

And since this is a contest, they are giving away prizes for three winners, $20 to one person and $5 each to two others, which will be sent through Paypal. All the contestants will have to do is help them disseminate information about ColorKiddos and its cause, including this contest. In this way, we are all helping underprivileged colorectal kids in the Philippines to gain international attention for this cause. 

If you are interested to join, here is the contest link.

Just Some Minor Interruptions..

Are you a night owl? Are you a night worker by choice, or you just got used to it because you have no choice? Working at night have its advantages and disadvantages, both in the physical and psychological aspect. But if you ask me, I would rather work at night, when all the world is sleeping, and I am awake, because it is silent and I can concentrate, except with minor interruptions brought about by Facebook thread chats and many others. That's why when I need to get down and be serious with a task, I shut myself out and not open any social media account. But on days when I simply do lighter tasks, I work side by side with them, lol. Well, I am not employed in the government and I do not owe anyone for time, as I am NOT paid by the hour, so technically, doing so is just okay. Unlike those who work in the government, or even private institutions who in one way or another, cheat their employers with time by spending it on Facebook instead of working and finishing tasks that need immediate attention. 

I like working at night, but ever since there are too many of us here at the apartment, I have learned to work with minimal lighting, or no light at all, except the one coming from the laptop monitor. Typing is really not a problem as I have already mastered the keys. But for my drinks, I make sure they are on spill kits so that I could not cause any damage or get electrocuted. Hahaha.. Seriously, it helps to be cautious.

No Longer a Good View

Yesterday we attended the wedding of my sister's best friend, where she is one of the maids-of-honor (there are two of them in this wedding, and 5 bride's maids) and Lili was one of the five flower girls too. We went to the Harbour Lights Hotel and Restaurant as early as four in the morning because the make-up staff has already arrived, and make up for the entourage has also started. When we left, we didn't really have breakfast, well I was not able to take anything, but the two members of the entourage had something warm that they didn't feel hunger while they were prepped and beautified. When the wedding coordinator arrived, all others inside the hotel room were sent out, and so I simply went to the hotel restaurant for coffee and perhaps enjoy the early morning view of the bay and the harbor. I have always enjoyed the beautiful view at this side of the hotel, whenever I have a chance to be there, but the last time I was visited was years ago. What I saw in this recent visit was no longer appealing. It is due to the current and still continuing construction of the new road that will connect to the Laguindingan Sea Port. The information supplied by the waiters there. Well, maybe for now that it is not finished yet, it looks like an eye-sore, but then again, maybe when it is done, it would look good again, though it blocks the view of the bay and the harbor.


Anyhow, I enjoyed my Filipino breakfast. My coffee was served first then fifteen minutes later, my meal of Beef Tapa, fried eggs, just the way I want it, a cup of garlic fried rice and a glass of ice cold Mango juice. 



That's P 190 plus VAT is P 213.00 in total, though that's not what was written on the receipt. That's all inclusive of the coffee and everything brought to my table.. yum... 



Yeah, we could no longer enjoy that beautiful view, in early mornings or evenings at this hotel, but maybe they will replace it with something.. 


Its green grassy lawn cum garden is still really nice to simply sit or while about. Most pictorials for wedding opps are done there though. Just like the pre-wedding pics the entire entourage did before heading towards the church.
