Live Safely

I wanted to login the net since early this morning so I can check the new rates at Wholesaleinsurance.net. However, my connection was bad and I had to make a fast run to a client meeting and was able to get some free time only today. I hope that next year would be as accident free for me as it is this year and the past few years. Getting insured is good but being accident free is much better.

GMA should not leave

Gloria Macapagal Arroyo fought hard with her “Right to life” campaign. She claimed to have a dire spine condition and tried to make a Speedy Gonzales at the airport. However, her doctors later testified that she is in already on her way to recovery and yes, her lawyers are trying to pressure them into not telling the truth. It was also noted that the Gloria M. Arroyo was wearing skinny leather pants and heels when she tried to leave? As some ladies say, tight pants, leather ones specially, are hard to put on. How can a lady with spine trouble do it? As for the high heels, even guys would be able to imagine what it can do to a lady with spine injury.

Today, the same lawyers and spinsters changed tact and are now using the “Right to travel” campaign. I don’t know what else they’d say next.

To my mind, it is very clear that the former president is trying to flee and has seriously lied more than once. Remember that “I am sorry” press conference that she held amidst the election wiretapping case?

This lady should be forbidden to leave. The right of the state in this case is much bigger than anyone’s right to travel.

Salus Populi est Suprema Lex!

Merry Christmas at the NAIA

In the news, they reported that "Merry Christmas" greetings will be disallowed for airport employees. A few hours however, the Presidential spokesman clarified that they will not enforce such ban.

I don't have much time now but let me tell you that a lot of  "Seasoned" employees at the airport has perfected the "Merry Christmas" scheme. They say it in such a way that makes one feel that it is compulsory for people to give them money. I know this for a fact because I experienced this long before I heard about it over the radio.

I asked an airport employee where the restroom was and when I said my thanks, he replied "Merry Christmas" in a way that made me realize that we was trying to bully me for money. The nerve of that guy. He didn't know that I was travelling with a government official. Had he pressed on, I would have had him fired.

Also please take note that comments about our "worst airport" give emphasis on the culture of corruption that prevails. No amount of architectural works will remove that. The first thing that we should do is privatize the entire operation so that those corrupt government employees can be taken out.

Very Sad!

As I sat down to prepare for today’s post, I got a text from my lovely daughter asking if she accidentally left her eyelash enhancer in my car when I drove her to school this morning. I replied that I’ll check later and get back to her.

With that done, let me get back to the topic at hand. It seems that there is so much chutzpah in the Arroyo camp. After using her fascist circular against her enemies during her ten year rule of the Philippines, she is now asking the courts to declare such a government action illegal simply because her term has expired and the new government is using it against her.

How low can man get? Now, I know.

Her mug shots are in MugShotsDotCom. I hope we will get to see more after she’s actually sent to the bilibid.

Let's Party!

This year, I am not sure if I will be in the mood to accept most Holiday Party Invitations because work load is killing the party animal in me. However, there are people that I actually want to see and party with during this year’s Christmas. I am hoping that I can gather them all in one event and have a grand time. Call it efficiency but attending just a single Christmas party is also healthy. Very little added calorie and alcohol in my body is not only good but also economical.

According to official statements, soldiers, some of whom are training for scuba courses in the army special forces, were sent to strike at a bandit group suspected of beheading members of the Philippine Marines (a couple of years ago) and kidnapping local residents. The problem is, they encountered members of the bandit group (Abu Sayaff) augmented by members of a rebel group (MILF). In the firefight, about 18 soldiers perished and a few missing.

According to a statement by a surviving soldier, the enemies were in position and waiting for them in ambush. The whole place has also been evacuated and very quiet. Another survivor also claims to have seen some of his colleagues ran out of ammo captured alive. They later on turned up dead.

MILF’s statement, however says that the military bombarded their positions with 105mm howitzers before launching an attack in their government recognized territory. They claimed to have simply fought back.

The military statement however claims that the site of the encounter was 4 kilometers short of the rebel territory.


Various media units have claimed that in the area where the gunfight happened, there is a creek separating the MILF territory and the areas infested by the bandit groups. And whenever an encounter between government people and the bandits occur, the MILF crosses the river and helps the bandits fight the government troopers. A lot of MILF rebels are said to be relatives of the bandits.


A lot of people are now calling for the end of the ongoing ceasefire and declaring an all out war against the MILF. The call is reminiscent of the Estrada administrations move that brought the MILF to crumble within a few days. What happened was very humbling for the MILF with their several years of boisterous and arrogant pronouncements of strength.

However, we should never forget that the Estrada action resulted to about a million refugees, as claimed by Ex President Fidel Ramos. It also failed to completely wipe out the rebellion. That would have taken much much longer, resulted to more refugees, more dead soldiers, lots of money spent, etc.

We should properly investigate the incidents and amend the terms of the existing ceasefire. Rebels should be mandated to make sure that no bandit is allowed within ten miles of their camps. They should be made to outlaw preparations for war like the building of weapons factories like the ones found by attacking soldiers in Camp Abubakar.

They MILF should be made to swear that they will report lawless elements that try to approach them and turn over any rebel with a warrant for a criminal offense unrelated to rebellion like kidnapping of civilians. For the meantime, the rebels should also be made to sit tightly in their camps as the military vigorously runs after the perpetrators of last week’s firefight.

The military leadership, on the other hand, should be made accountable for the loss of soldiers lives. With so many resources on their side, it is unforgivable for them to lose in combat.

Lastly, the public should refrain from being the cause of war. Hawks among the government and military can stage “massacres” of some of our soldiers and/or civilians in order to provoke the population into forcing the government leadership into calling for an all out war.

Let’s continue our path towards peace but always be on guard for war.

Good Jobs

Those looking for jobs overseas can also try checking out openings for Cocktail Server Jobs. The hospitality business is still doing fine and people who are not averse to customer service will have a good chance of prospering in it. My favorite bartender and waiters are now happily working as such in ocean liners and other than good pay, they are now in an adventure and fun filled environment. If I am not married, I will probably be in it as well.

Kids nowadays are always plugged in

My daughter is such a fan of ipod shuffle. She uses it in the school bus to and from the school and also uses it whenever she is studying. I myself can’t understand how can anybody study while listening to loud music but somehow, she is able to do it. Good grade are very important for any student and if it will require the use of an ipod for her to be able to attain it, I will not have any problem with it.

Get Healthier!

There is this new diet fad that I have seen work. My friend lost more than 50 lbs and I have told him to stop losing weight. His diet requires a lot of tests prior to start and requires constant austin clinical nutritionist. The diet gives him enough energy to get through the day without feeling week and does not require any exercise. People who work out are given more to eat in order to sustain their energy requirements. This kind of diet requires money to pay the doctors and packed meals. One just can’t go around eating in restos. The thing is, this diet works and people really get healthier!

Other use for the tablets

I wonder if digital antennas will work for ipads or Samsung galaxy tabs when it’s docked in car dashboards. Samsung Galaxies, Ipads and even Achoes tabs are huge enough to become car navigation screens and even televisions. I therefore hope that a good antenna can be hot synched into it so that we can enjoy the gadget as we drive from one place to another.

Motorhome Repair

I wonder where in my country I will get a decent motorhome repair service. I’ve had one for a few years now and it probably needs a specialist for its maintenance. I will probably ask around for referrals and on some spare moments, look for a good one through the internet. Much of what we need can be found online and I hope that it is also very true for motorhomes in my country.

Special Present

I intend to send my mom some special treats so I will be logging on to the Sharis Berries Facebook to check on the special discounts that they are offering and anything else that they have in store. Online presence through facebook is pretty inexpensive but very effective in marketing products. It also makes it very convenient for customers to find the nearest branches and enjoy the products that businesses are oferring.

Clemency Delayed is not Justice denied

Late Clemency?

While I am no P-Noy apologist, I do not like the way some people are lambasting the president for granting executive clemency to a prisoner who unfortunately died a few days before he was pardoned. They say that the recommendation was forwarded to him a long time ago. Does that mean that there should be haste in approving recommendations?

When a prisoner’s sentence is promulgated, does it come with a clause that requires executive clemency for good behavior and/or failing health? When a criminal commits a crime, does he do it because there is a surefire recipe for pardon?

Crimes are not lightly committed and sentences are likewise not dispensed like a comedy show. An executive clemency therefore, should be well contemplated before being dispensed. Prisoners dying prior to clemency is indeed a regrettable event but it is not at all the fault of the president. The crime committed remains to be the sole fault of the criminal and never is it transferred to the pardoner at any time. 

Let us not forget the original victims of the crime. Is justice served when the clemency is given? Did it send the right message to criminals? Or did it render the penal system ineffective?

Golf GPS

Yesterday, a golf buddy noticed that I seem to have difficulty determining my distances to the flag. Golf courses are designed to look beautiful and most often than not, it provides a distance illusion. My old friend recommended that I buy a garmin watch that provides precise distances to the hole or anywhere for both serious and amateur golfer.

The Cellular Phone

I remember the days when the Philippines dreamt of installing a phone in every far flung barrio. The cost was so huge that the project became controversial. At that time, copper and fiber optic cables were the only ways. But today, cell phones and satellite technology has made it cheaper to make that dream come true. With the two wireless components, cellular and satellite, we will only be needing some places to be installed with fiber and copper cables.

SMARTBRO's: (Slow) Speed

I remember hearing marketing lines that say SmartBro gives out speed as fast as 2Mbps. In my several years of SmartBro experience, I can’t remember having experienced that. I looked up Smartbro’s website and it says that the download speed can go up to 1mbps.

Now, I feel that this website is not updated and that they are now claiming that it is up to 2MBPS.

Anyway, I feel that my internet is unusually slow the past few days that I did a speed test.

The result speaks for itself. My speed is less than 100KBPS.

Now, I know what Smartbro will say. They will make an excuse that 1 or 2 MBPS is their company’s maximum speed. However, if you will ask them what is the guaranteed minimum, they will be unable to answer. I know that for a fact for they have given me such a stupid excuse the past few years.

I really feel that the NTC and the congress should act fast and crack their whips against the great Oligopoly called Smart and Globe.

Bad Information technology is greatly detrimental to the economy and providing poor telecommunication and broadband service is tantamount to economic sabotage.

Something To be Proud of: UN Rehires Retired Filipino General

This reminds me of the great American General Douglas Mac Arthur who was called back from retirement to lead troops in retaking Japanese occupied countries in Asia and eventually leading Japan and reestablishing it as a peace loving and modern country.

Gen. Natalio Ecarma III retired a few days ago. However, the United Nations leadership believes that he did a splendid job as its commander of UN troops in the Golan Heights. Because of that, they requested that he be given an extended tour. President Aquino called Ecarma back to active duty but this time, as a naval reservist.

With so many active duty generals in the Philippines and everywhere else, it is indeed very impressive of Ecarma to have been requested to be back.

Maraming Salamat Natalio Ecarma III, you make your grand dad, Natalio I and your dad, Natalio II and the rest of the 70 million filipinos very proud!

I can’t believe takeover that ASEC Torres of the LTO is still in office. Being caught on film “leading” a very hostile corporate raid of LTO systems provider Stradcom has made the public lose its faith in her and now, the president himself is spending so much time defending her. If I were her, I’d resign in order to protect the office of the president. There is so much work to be done and the president needs more time to do just that. He also needs the people’s FAITH and not the people’s DOUBTS.

Goodbye my lover , Goodbye my friend. You have (NOT) been the one , You have (NOT) been the one for me!

Here’s the song…

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won

So I took what's mine by eternal right
Took your soul out into the night
It may be over but it won't stop there
I am here for you if you'd only care

You touched my heart you touched my soul
You changed my life and all my goals
And love is blind and that I knew when
My heart was blinded by you
I've kissed your lips and held your head
Shared your dreams and shared your bed
I know you well, I know your smell
I've been addicted to you

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

I am a dreamer and when I wake
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take
And as you move on, remember me
Remember us and all we used to be

I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile
I've watched you sleeping for a while
I'd be the father of your child
I'd spend a lifetime with you

I know your fears and you know mine
We've had our doubts but now we're fine
And I love you, I swear that's true
I cannot live without you

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have (NOT) been the one
You have (NOT) been the one for me

And I still hold your hand in mine
In mine when I'm asleep
And I will bear my soul in time
When I'm kneeling at your feet

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

I'm so hollow, baby
I'm so hollow
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow

I'm so hollow, baby

Senate or House Grilled?

The former Ombudsman of the republic was able to avoid being cooked in an electric grill by filing her resignation. This time however, another lady might not be so lucky. She was captured in CCTV in what seemed like an attempt to lead a group of people from illegally taking over the operations of a huge government contractor. She was asked to take a leave but has now returned when the fire created by the incident has not yet subsided. Let’s see what will happen.

Great Brand

Buying my recent batch of fuji finepix reminds me of the time when I was a student living out on a small allowance. I took tons of photos and of course, needed to buy film all the time. A friend then showed me a good alternative. I was shown a nice brand of film that when closely examined, was also manufactured by Fuji. The end photos were very good. I just hope that Fuji still manufactures those low priced but quality films.

Hi Tech Golf Gadgets

I’ve always wanted my buddies and I to use GPS systems for golf. The game is played in a large tract of land and determining one’s distance can be very unnerving. In addition, I hope that golf balls will also be attached to some kind of a GPS system. I sometimes think that caddies are way too lazy to look where the ball landed and that can cost the golfer a lot in terms of score, self esteem and lost bets.

Wang Wang Wang!

It all seems to be quiet in the implementation of the no wang wang policy of the president. I notice that even cops are a bit afraid to indiscriminately use the device. Of course, there is the occasional rotten egg who tries to get away with it. I really hope that they will get caught on television and shamed to high heavens.

But while we Filipinos are trying hard to start behaving, there are foreigners who think so lowly of us and blatantly violate our laws. There is this Korean who was recently caught using his illegal siren at the most major road in the country's capital.
The suspect, identified as Oh Hoon Kwon, was seen by Robredo himself, driving a black Starex van (with license plate PID-916) with a siren on along Edsa highway in Mandaluyong City late Sunday morning.
 His car was confiscated and the guy charged. I hope his face is shown on TV and viewed by everybody who knows him in Korea. I hope that when he eventually gets deported, everybody in that country will tell him how shameful it is to have done it.

I have a Japanese word for you, Oh Hoon Kwon. It starts with a B and ends with an O!

Cowboys and Indians!

As I shopped around for bowhunting equipment for this coming long weekend, I wonder if I will need a permit to carry my modern hunting bow out of my residence. With firearms requiring permits to possess and permits to carry outside the owner’s residence, it seems not very farfetched that ownership and use of other types of “deadly” sporting equipment are in place. I hope not, baby! I am yet to hear of criminals using bows and arrows beyond the days of cowboys and injuns!

Furor Over The Spratly Islands

On March 7, 2008, I wrote about the Spratly Islands (Kalayaan Group) and a military fiasco.

Today, a lot of people are trying to act like experts in the law of the seas and territorial boundaries while the Chinese are saber rattling. Please check the video below but never forget what I have written about the Spratly Islands, a few years ago.

Most of us believe that HIV leads to AIDS. Since HIV and AIDS were first discovered, millions of people have died. Until now, no definite cure has been made known but there's real hope for everyone. A few years ago, a man diagnosed to be suffering from HIV was suddenly cured but nobody has any clue how it happened.

This time however, a well documented procedure lead to the cure of an HIV infected individual. He was given a dangerous bone marrow stem cell transplant wherein the donor is an HIV immune individual. Yes, the said phenomenon exists. About 1 percent of all Caucasians are known to be naturally, immune. Since the transplant, the man's HIV went away.

Allowing Emergency Lights

My car has a LED Light Bar for emergency purposes. I sometimes have meetings in airport offices necessitating the need for the product when crossing runways. I also do a lot of long road trips at night and in dark highways where speeding buses often lingers at the opposite lanes, a powerful LED light warns other vehicles of your presence from longer distances. I just hope that the traffic police will not take offense.

Cure this societal disease

The best way to get rid of corrupt officials is not as easy as the best way to get rid of blackheads. Blackheads can be cured and its damages corrected but corrupt officials can multiply faster than the worst cancer and the can be very difficult to determine. In this country, I hope half of public officials will see the error of their ways and stop corruption. However, I think that it will not happen within the next several months.

To Lead is Difficult

My newgy ping pong table reminds me of the way government in this country works – back and forth. Mud is thrown in several directions and at the end of the day, nothing gets done. It is not only in politics where this happens. Radio commentators have long been castigating the government for its failure to curve over speeding and daily vehicular deaths in the country’s “Death Highway” but when the traffic cops started strictly implementing the speeding limit; they get bullied and mocked, short of calling them stupid, for arresting drivers who go a few miles over the speed limit. And those commentators are talking as if they are experts in speed radar calibration and leadership in government. Wow!

Radio Gaga

It’s really bad to listen to my stereo speakers in the morning. It is because my stereo unit is tuned to the AM band where mostly bad news blares out to make me feel bad that I ever got up to prepare for work. It is my desire to tune in to the FM band all the time but gee, I am forced to listen to the news everyday because I live in a storm prone area.

Let Them Starve?

There’s this congressman (Rafael Mariano) who, instead of thanking the Aquino administration for giving an immediate 4 billion direct subsidy to the poor and hungry farmers, is even calling it an insult.
He says; “The Aquino government is exploiting the farmers’ situation in order to utilize billions of taxpayers’ money in a corruption-prone rice subsidy program similar to the fertilizer fund scam and conditional cash transfer scheme,” Mariano said.
“It is the height of irony that farmers, the rice producers themselves, are now being targeted by the government’s so-called rice subsidy. Instead of addressing demands for genuine agrarian reform and direct agricultural support to farmers, Aquino further insults the people behind the plow by giving them crumbs,” he said.
Mariano said that such a scheme only exposes the government’s failure to address hunger and poverty and inability to implement genuine reforms.
He said that the free distribution of land to farmers through genuine agrarian reform will directly helpfarmers feed themselves and their family.
It will also unleash the capital in the land that will serve as a strong foundation for the development of the national economy and support national industrialization, he added. (PDI)

OK, let’s call off the subsidy for it is insulting, as the very intelligent congressman calls it. Let us go for the land distribution and continue facing the landlords in court. Let’s see if the president  will be able to do it within his term.  In my estimate, a very determined government can do it in about six years.

For the meantime, let the farmers starve to death. Brilliant, Congressman Rafael Mariano

Too Low?

While I agree that employers should make sure that they pay equitable wages, I understand that they must also price themselves within competitive levels. Professional managers and business owners are therefore mandated to find a good balance between good wages and proper returns on every peso invested in the business. 

In this country and elsewhere, a lot of business people are heavily infected by intense greed. However, a lot has been written about that topic and I will just write about it at a later time, if I still feel like doing so.  What I would like to write this time is something that is very unpopular. It is about the greed and tyranny of my fellow poor.
Just this afternoon, I listened to radio interviews of union members who cry out against a low wage increase that is being proposed by employers. While I agree that a lot of greedy employers have very high margins, I also know for a fact that for every company making a lot of money, a lot more are bleeding from low margins and high debts.

In the interview, there was a lady who lamented that the P13.50/day wage increase cannot buy sufficient bread for 10 children. In the first place, the P13.50/day is just an increase. It's not their their daily wage. Secondly, I'd like to ask why does she have 10 children? She’s poor, isn’t she?

I am not anywhere near as poor as her but I cannot imagine being able to afford even half that number. My friends, if you cannot afford it, why do it?

Men's Store

If you are at a loss for birthday gifts for him, I know an easy to access site that has a lot of things for men. Basically, guys are mostly very easy to predict. There are very few things that they really want but of course, there are those that are more meticulous and harder to please. Shops designed by discriminating men for men is the solution to that problem.


Despite the fuel price hikes that triggered food price increases, uneasiness in the labor force and the expected increase in the incidence of poverty, there remains a huge demand for Lipofuze and other weight loss formulas. Economic crisis affects only the poor and the not so rich. It may bother the big fishes but certainly, it will not make them poor. Broke maybe, but never poor.

Remembering Crame

At the inquirer online today, a title says something like Camp Crame had become a historical site because of EDSA 1. I remember General Almonte who recounted an event at Crame when as a colonel, he tried to convince General Ramos to support his group who was very much against Marcos. Eddie Ramos, in parting, gave him a stack of cigars and lighted one himself. He then asked Almonte that whatever it is that he is planning, he should try not to make it to bloody.

Yes to Subsidies, Rebates and Tax Cuts

A group of economists cautions the Philippine government against populist measures like fuel subsidies saying that it can distort the market forces and cause more harm into the economy. The group says that leaving market forces on its own will eventually work towards the advantage of the economy.

While I agree with the textbook approach being advocated by the group, I beg to disagree with them just a little bit. The Philippine economy has a very high incidence of corruption and giving too much public money to the government in form of taxes will simply expose a lot of cash to corrupt officials. I believe that minimizing the taxes being paid by the people will result to a more equal distribution and spending and it will lead to more jobs and a better economy. Giving the government too much money will only result to a lot of money being hoarded overseas.

Never forget the Ligot, Garcia and Arroyo stash that were all alleged to have been spirited out of the country.

UP Geologists Found Leak in Magallanes Pipeline

I've known UP President Fred Pascual for more than 10 years now. I used to call him up at his ADB office and have a few bottles of beer with a group of friends about once a month. Now University of the Philippines (UP) Prexy for about a month now, I am surprised to find out fro him (through the Inquirer) that it was geologists from the UP National Institute of Geology (NIGS) that found the source of the great gas pipe leak at the West Tower Condo in Makati. This happened after foreign (and expensive) experts failed to find the problem.

Wow! I know that lots of Filipinos have talent but I've long been afraid that advances in technology has been slow to reach the country and that we are increasingly lagging behind other countries for quite sometime now. The UP NIGS feat shows that at least, there are still highly competitive areas where we can excel against people from richer countries.

CIA's Intel Success in Pakistan

It seems that the CIA is proving its worth nowadays. Criticized widely for its huge annual budgets and intelligence failures like its inability to know Saddam’s military push to Kuwait, the chain of uprising in the Middle East and the 9/11, it has shown its might by being instrumental in the capture of the Bali and Makati bombings. Get Bin Ladin, will you please?

During my college days, how to get rid of whiteheads was a multibillion dollar question. Today, the value remains except that there are medications and supplements that actually work. During my time, moms advised their daughters to stay away from white head medications for it supposedly does nothing and even aggravates pimples and acne. But now, the story is much different and there are now fast acting formulas from both white heads and the much hated and feared acne.

Rich Beggars

About a decade ago, the country the largest denomination of Philippine coins was a peso. I am not very sure if we had the two peso coin then. Anyway, street beggars then were making about P500/ day and that is very high considering that today, the minimum wage is still below that number. I am sure that they make more now since we already have coins as high as P10 in value.

Private Intervention

In this time of need, when even the most well intentioned government is doing its best, it is a good thing that the private sector is helping out. Available columbus jobs, for example, can be found by people in the area by merely visiting the different employment providers’ websites. The government can only do so much and the private sector, with its motivation for profit is helping the community, a lot.

Darn Libyan Rebels

The Libyan rebels were very arrogant in the beginning. The uprising was so successful in the beginning and they had most of the country in their hands. At a certain point, it even looked like they were ready to stampede Tripoli and crush Muammar Gaddafi. Oh boy, were they arrogant. They arrested a British diplomatic team sent for backdoor negotiations and even bragged about it.

Little did they know that the ruthless leader had a scorch earth policy and most importantly, they were not skilled enough to win the revolution. Imagine shooting at enemy planes with a rifle. No wonder, they DOWNED THEIR OWN PLANE after takeoff.

And when they were being trampled upon like inch long toy soldiers, they called for foreign intervention to save them.


Now, they have nothing but parts of Banghazi and with foreign intervention, it will look like they were entirely saved by foreign crusaders!

Renewal Time

My original rv insurance is about to expire and I need to get another one in my country. You see, my RV was imported from another place and it came with an insurance policy. Now, I feel that it is not very practical to renew my policy from an overseas based company so I will have to look for a new one locally. I hope that the rates and coverage will be better.

Health Care

Every year, more than one Filipino, graduate with the hope of getting a healthcare job. The thing is, they want to work overseas more than the desire to find employment locally. Health care is a good industry for it is very noble. It is far from the largely profiteering nature of commerce and actually, its business is healing the sick and tending to the weak and elderly.

Homicidal/ Muderous/ Reckless/ Stupid Cab Driver

Yesterday, a cab (TYS- 160) was photographed loaded with 14 school children. The cab was apparently operating during early mornings as a school bus (taxi) service. Since 14, even if they’re just kids, is such a huge number for a taxi cab, the driver decided to pack four of the kids in the rear trunk. A radio reporter, who was driving around looking for something to report, spotted the cab and took photos. The cab is reported to have the plate number TYS 160.

Hoping to take photos of the errant driver, the reporter followed the cab, which recklessly crossed an intersection despite a red light. When the reporter’s car was about side by side the overloaded cab, the taxi driver made a sudden turn and was able to get away. The driver apparently noticed that he was being covered.
That driver should be criminally charged with reckless imprudence, endangerment and perhaps, frustrated homicide/murder. Overloading the cab in such a manner is clear recklessness and a sign that the driver knowingly placed the passengers’ life in danger. An overloaded cab clearly distracts the driver’s attention and restricts his side and rear view. His mobility and ability to safely steer the car is seriously hampered making his car a rolling coffin.

Jail the errant driver and let’s hope that nothing like this ever happens again.

Lead us not into ... the wrong link

After lunch, while figuring out how to get rid of acne fast, I clicked on the pages of my favorite online paper, inquirer.net. Perhaps, until now, the paper’s staffs remain very engrossed with Donaire’s sensational win over the champion Montiel.

I noticed that until now, a click on the headline leads to a wrong page. Instead of that story in Maguindanao, the link leads to the story about the Chinese government postponing some executions. Please correct the link, my dear Inquirer.


Nonito Donaire, on the eve of his weigh-in, did his workout inside a sauna. That made him burn more fat and muscles at a short time and that enabled him to make the catch weight. I think he was also given fat burners in form of shakes by his nutritionist. Just today, he demolished his opponent on the second round using a powerful left hook that took his opponent down and make him shake like he was having a seizure. That really scared the wits out of me. Boxing is a very dangerous sport.

Safe Houses

I wonder if the AFP safe houses are designed with a glass tile. Just yesterday, news came out that a former chief of staff ordered his aides to look for a safe house. Personally, I see nothing wrong with safe houses. Intelligence is a basic function of the armed forces and everybody connected with it should have a way of meeting without the knowledge of people who do not need to know.

Psychological Scars

Of course, it pays to have acne treatment. Acne scars will be a lifetime of regret for most people, starting every morning when they look at the mirror. Acne does not physically harm people but the psychological damage that it cause leads to low self esteem and eventual low performance in a lot of activities. Unless one works online and does not meet with people, good looks makes people work better.

The human body

In regard to my previous post, the item that I was referring to belongs to the family of muscle building supplements. It is supposed to make the body look better and perform well. I believe that people can still be optimized with better training, nutrition and equipment.

After having said that, let me state that the human brain is the deadliest weapon. Synchronize it with a healthy body and you have a killer.

Slush Funds?

Instead of diverting personnel services funds to slush funds, I suggest that the military use the money to supply their troops with the needed training and equipment. I also suggest that they read animal cuts reviews and buy one that will give the troops a good muscle definition. Good muscles will allow them to perform well in combat situations and lesser casualties should eventually be the end result.

Passing on something good

In continuation to my last post, if ever I will need to go, I should be able to make a good contribution to mankind. I should have been able to buy tons of refurbished netbooks and donated it to thousands of worthwhile beneficiaries in the poorest but deserving areas of this planet. Education is the best thing that a parent can pass on to his offspring; it also is the best that good people can give to their fellowmen.

Planning to Die

I hope to be able to plan a funeral, my own, at a nice pace unlike the hurried and unexpected ways that a lot of people do. Their next of kin were either killed in an accident or about to die from severe sickness or worse, a death sentence. That’s what happened to the family of those sentenced to die in China next week.

Pres Tabako!

We should send ex president Fidel Valdez Ramos a pack of cigars samplers during his birthdays. The guy is known for munching into a cigar all the time but I remember him saying that he doesn’t actually smoke it. He has it with him all the time and jokes that he sometimes has it for lunch! That guy is lovingly referred to be everyone as – TABAKO!

How to produce breast milk!

A lot of people in this country ought to know howtoproducemorebreastmilk.org. Infant formula is very expensive and not as effective as moms milk, we all know that. However, there are moms who complain that they do not produce at all and there are also those who claim that they do not have breast milk at all. With money being a huge problem of most people, they should all research on this topic and apply what they have learned. It’s the cheapest and best solution in all aspects!

Side effects, good and/or bad

I am curious about diet pills and its supposed side effects to people. I therefore would like to search for reviews and professional opinion about apidexin side effects as well as the externalities brought to people by other diet and weight loss supplements. Some products are advertised to be effective in making people lose weight but are there things that they are not telling us? This, we have to know!

Best Blinds

It seems that I need a plantation shutter for my newly renovated home. My windows are a bit longer than my old design and with the sunlight getting bigger access of the insides of the house; it can get very bright during early morning and/ or very warm in the middle of the day. The plantation shutters also allow me to enjoy the view when I want it and provide me with privacy when I need it.

Welcome 2011

Preparing to meet the New Year, I cleaned the house, fixed the broken fixtures and replaced my door handlesets and whatever needed to be thrown away. I have a belief that every start of the year is a good excuse to start anew or continue the good things that are being done. The house should still look good by the end of the year and I will be left with nothing to do but home improvements.

2011 Vacation

It’s barely the start of the year and I am already dreaming of my next vacation. I want a few days in a nice beach house spending most of my time lazily dozing or sitting by a nice expensive mattress lined with Egyptian cotton sheets. But to be able to do that, I will have to work really hard, impress my boss and earn that holiday. This is the year of the rabbit. Let’s see what it has for me.
