How do you run an effective campaign drive against cigarettes when the most powerful person in the Philippines himself is a smoker?

Simple Pleasures

Pasimple naming pinagmasdan ni Misis yung mag-boyfriend na nakasakay namin kagabi sa jeep.

Hindi alintana ang siksikan ng mga pasahero sa loob, hinugot ni lalake sa isang plastic ang isang stick ng barbeque at iniabot kay babae. Matapos ngumiti ng malambing si babae tanda ng pasasalamat eh hinugot naman ni lalake ang natitirang naka-stick na tenga ng baboy.

Tahimik silang kumakain habang patuloy na umaarangkada ang jeep. Matapos maubos ang inihaw na barbeque at tenga ng baboy ay salisihan nilang tinungga ang isang boteng mineral water.

Atsaka humilig si babae sa balikat ni lalake at pumikit upang umidlip.

Dear Noynoy,

Sana hindi sila nagkamali sa pagpili sa'yo.

Magtataka Ka Pa Ba?

Hold on, folks!

It's 5 days to go before we troop to the polling precints and cast our votes in one of the most important national elections happening in Philippine history.

As I have already posted on one of my earlier blogs, the various religious groups are taking a very active role in endorsing their chosen candidates for the various electoral positions. The endorsements are perceived by many to have a significant effect on who will win and who will be cheated (dahil sabi nga nila, sa Pilipinas daw ay wala namang natatalo sa eleksiyon, dahil yung mga hindi nananalo ay nadadaya).

Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, who boasts of at least 6 Million strong votes through his sect Kingdom of Jesus Christ has officially endorsed Gibo Teodoro as their chosen candidate for President.

Meanwhile, early today during their Thursday morning service, influential group Iglesia Ni Cristo who is known for their bloc votes have endorsed tandem of Noynoy Aquino and Mar Roxas for President and Vice President, respectively.

The Pentecostal and Evangelical groups are not openly endorsing any candidate, but since Jesus Is Lord leader Evangelist Bishop Brother Eddie Villanueva is running, it is expected that most votes will go to him.

The nation awaits as to the endorsement of El Shaddai leader Mike Velarde, but there are rumors that he is set to endorse Manny Villar.

Sa mga ganitong pangyayari, magtataka ka pa ba kung bakit nakikialam din ang relihiyon sa pamamalakad ng bansa?

A Gift For Her


My dearly beloved is celebrating her birthday this lovely month of May and so I am now running out of time as to what to give her on her special day.

My initial idea is to buy her a nice pillow with some special messages printed on it, however, I have noticed that we have a lot of these already. I also thought of buying her a set of earrings to compliment the silver pendant I gave her some years back, but last weekend she went home wearing a new set of earrings she bought from a co-worker.

The idea of giving her a Women's Running Shoes came to my mind last Monday when we brought our daughter for a stroll in the lakeside. We have actually been doing this as a form of relaxation and so that our daughter will get to have a nice view of the lake and the sunrise on early mornings. Here we can also see that a lot of people are taking a jog and/or walk to exercise their bodies. We discussed that jogging or brisk walking is a very good way to exercise because you keep you body fit and you shake off unwanted fats (since you get to perspire a lot), so we thought of trying to jog or walk the next time we visit the lakeside.

But of course, we need to have our outfits ready. I have actually given her a set of Nike Shoes one Christmas day, but since that was years ago, we've found out that the soles are already worn out and she might get an accident if she still uses it.

I have checked the internet and found out that New Balance shoes specialize on Men's and Women's Running Shoes. I am not sure, however, about the latest model, but the one like the picture I placed on this blog is pretty nice and am sure that my beloved will like it because the design and color are very simple but elegant-looking.

I have yet to check on the SRP (suggested retail price), though, because I heard New Balance shoes are quite costly (again, depending on the model).

Well, I think that would be a nice gift, isn't it?
