To go or not to go: that is the question!

I have a scheduled ticket to Singapore on November 3rd and a return ticket on December 3. With the current situation, I am weighing things out if I will go or not considering the expenses of the travel and Ira's expenses. I didn't received my pay for the end of this month, is this a sign or what?

Buy NOW..

A basketful of Lanzones

This is what is on our table right now. A basket full of Lanzones from my mother's trip yesterday. Actually that is about eight kilos of Lanzones, five of which she bought for only P 150.00 and the three kilos additional was given by her office mate. The basket of course, is not part of the pricing,lol.. It came separately, and when she arrived, she simply placed the Lanzones in it, which made us think she bought the entire basket from a vendor somewhere.. Hehehe

Wanna Play..

I wanna try playing Slot games at the Casino, or even those online. Although, I was told that the two are not necessarily the same in game and game rules. Well, whatever and however they go, I am curious at how they will be played. I have read about them and all I can read are winnings, winnings and more winnings. But how to play? That is my concern, lol..

the silence

The silence in the room is deafening, I am the only left for now since Kent and Ira are in Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte for the wake. I will be leaving on the 15th since the burial services will be on the 16th. I thank my immediate supervisor for allowing me to have a bereavement leave even though the person who died is not an immediate relative. The funny thing is I have a bereavement leave, plus the core leave of ten days and then on Nov. 1 will be the effective date of my resignation. Now I am having second thoughts of leaving....huhuhu

the mournings...

I just arrived from NAIA terminal 3 where I accompanied Kent and Ira to catch the plane for CDO. Though it is too late for them to see Mama Philind in person but the thought that Kent's promise to come home to visit her is accomplished. It is sad though that instead of a visiting somebody alive and breathing, they were just visiting somebody cold. For Kent I understand it is really hard to lose a mother to whom he is very attached with considering that he is a certified mama's boy. For Ira, it is sad as well since at a very young age of 1 year old, she can't remember any of these. Another sad thing is she couldn't witness his son's wedding in flesh. With this incident we have to move the wedding after a year of mourning. I pray that God will open His arms in welcoming Mama Philind and that she will be an added angel to look upon us and guide us always.

Rest in peace Mama Philind!

10 10 10

October 10, 2010.. 10 10 10 is said to be a lucky date.. Not quite. Because at 5:30 in the morning today, my beloved's mother passed away. I am so sorry to say that life and death are synonymous and for some luck is what they have in mind, but we, especially my beloved, are in mourning..

Condolence to the Garcia Family..

New Discovery: NMEDA

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today I blog hopped and found out more about NMEDA, a non-profit trade association who help educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer. In fact, it is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. And upon reading this, I have felt this urgency to write about this as I feel everyone must know about this non-profit organization, and how their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Just to make things clear, NMEDA dealers (mostly NMEDA members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people, and not the organization itself.

One of the important learning I gathered is that, No two people with a disability are exactly the same. Meaning, all people with disability have varied needs, thus,  adapted wheelchair vehicles sold over the Internet or through catalogs are not at all helpful for some. Before a purchase is to be made, a personalized “in-person” evaluation will be done so that family and the client himself  can be sure of getting the right driving solution customized to the specific lifestyle and needs of the client. Additional training or product refinements will be given when necessary by NMEDA dealers, should help be requested.

Now, NMEDA dealership is governed by the Quality Assurance Program (QAP), which  is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry, that is based on the principle "that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality".

Knowing all these, I  would like to recommend the Adaptive Mobility Equipment that NMEDA dealers are selling as I know that it can benefit, not only the client but also the caregiver or the specific family member who is assigned to assist the client in all undertakings. and how an NMEDA qualified dealer could assist. At least the tool can readily extend help to mobilize the client and not just stay indoors to bore.

I think the product can also be advantageous for the elderly or disabled to get back onto the road of independence with less or no supervision.

I'm What Kind of Gelato?

Here's a quiz I took after seeing all the yummy Gelato in my sister's blog.. When I arrive at CDO, I will eat plenty of Gelato at Missy Bon Bon too..

You Are Caramel Gelato

You are naturally nurturing without even trying to be. People are soothed by your presence.

You are a devoted friend and family member. You are always there in a time of crisis.

You stick with people through good times and bad. You don't abandon the ones you love.

Empathy is very easy for you. You have no trouble imagining yourself in someone else's shoes.

My Blogs Need a Make Over

I had been a blogger for many many months already and I have not even bothered to change my look. Not until this blog got a bad day while doing posts, so I had to change the old theme to this new one, and it has not changed since then. To begin with, I am using this Free template which came from a site that designs Blogger themes as well as wordpress themes. They also offer wordpress web hosting, which I would have wanted to consider, but I didn't quite understand so I simply let the blog free of it. Since I have another blog which really uses wordpress, I could make changes easily in that blog than in this blog, using the many great themes that they offer for free and some, since they are personalized, come with a minimal fee.

I have yet to find the best wordpress themes for that blog of mine. But still, I have yet to find the best theme for this blog and do a make over, lol.. Well, I always love make overs. Speaking of which, a blogger's event will be happening tomorrow and I am supposed to be part of it. Unfortunately, I cannot attend. I have to be at the airport to attend to my beloved's departure as he will be going home for his mom's wake and funeral.. I wish I could go too, but I have work and well, I will be in Cagayan de Oro for my leave anyway, so we may meet halfway..

We just have to accept that there are things in life that we can not control. But when it comes to blogs and themes, we all know that we can control and decide the outcome..  I just wish I am knowledgeable enough so I can do the html  tweaking myself. Oh well, gotta learn them as fast as I can..

The Cowboy and Angel Locsin

Guess who is this cowboy with Angel Locsin in this photo? That's my brother and he was one of the cowboys in the scene where Piolo Pascual and some cowboys of Bukidnon fought with a bull in the arena.. His girlfriend was one of the girls together with Angel Locsin as they also fought with the Bull and won..

Taxi/Cab Modus Operandi

My father called me the other day and told me about the frightful happenings in our city, Cagayan de Oro City.  See, according to the news, there had already been three, as of today, victims of kidnapping and most of them take the taxi, where the driver will eventually sell them for P 2,000 to P 3,000 to would be flesh consumers. 

A victim had been reported to have escaped after she was sold, but thank God was never harmed by her attackers. She was about to be raped by the clients of the driver.. 

I wish there could be something that the government can do about this and fast..
