Tedious Process

I once met a nurse who took up reviews at the kaplan gre. It was the most popular review company at that time and I think, it still comfortably rests up there. Anyway, this lady told me about having to go to Saipan for some tests and in the province for another. Well, she is a successful nurse in the US now. I just hope that other people who want to go through her path need not go through all the troubles that she went to.

92.3 M Pinoys

A couple of weeks ago, an issue of Business World reports that the Philippine population is now 92.3 million with 12.61 million located in Calabarzon and 11.86 in Metro Manila. The rest are scattered in the provinces. While this growth is quite significant, it has actually slowed compared to the previous growth rate of 2.34%. Today's annual growth rate is 1.9%.

Is this good or bad for the economy?

Keep the A/C running really cold!

Mall restaurants having outdoor ceiling fans is a good thing. However, restaurants located inside the malls having electric fans running are kind of a bad dream. You see, malls are supposed to be well air-conditioned because it is an enclosed space. A lot of people are inhaling and exhaling at the same time and good ventilation is very necessary for hygienic purposes. At the Ayala Trinoma yesterday but it was kinda warm inside and I feel that something is wrong with the A/C or the operators are trying to save on electric bills.

Repairing Leather

If you want to know how to repair leather car seats, the internet is probably the best source of information for you. In my several years of existence in this planet, I have only encountered a few people who are knowledgeable about proper leather care and repair. I believe that the same is the experience of most people. Leather specialists have their own websites and getting into them is the best way that a person can do to find good results. So other than asking your grandpa or your next door neighbor, internet research is one good thing that one can do.

I prefer a country run like hell by Filipinos

Looking at a display of wall coat rack at reminds me of Manolo Quezon and the nice suits that he wears. Of course, it helps a lot that he has breeding, having descended from royalty. His Grand dad and namesake, Manuel L. Quezon was a president of the Philippines who I remember in my history books as the one who famously said; “"I would rather have a country run like hell by Filipinos than a country run like heaven by the Americans, because however bad a Filipino government might be, we can always change it.”

Messy Parties

This Semana Santa, I will probably spend a day installing a outdoor pavilions in my mom’s and sister’s house. These Pavillions have become a trademark of our family. We like weekend lunches and outdoor pavilions serve as a good venue with the number of kids in our family rising every year. Outdoor Pavillions accommodate a good number of people and it also saves the main house from becoming overly messy during parties.

Taguig Student

All these nice ps3 controllers remind me of that High School student in Taguig who did very well in school. The guy likes his PS3 a lot and playing probably served as an inspiration for him to excel. How I wish kids nowadays will learn to fully enjoy PS3’s and use the product to inspire them to succeed in school as well as in life.

Segway Tour of Intramuros

Is it possible to tow my kid’s City Select double stroller using a Segway? In the old city of Intramuros, a hotel is offering a tour of the historical city through segways. I think the tour concept is a very good idea. A lot of tourists are retired individuals and taking them on a tiring walk will take away the enjoyment of the trip.
