Weird Things About Me

>> Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Got this tag from Emz .. Thanks!

Rules are rules. To tag along: you have to list 7 weird things about yourself, post it in your blog, tag at least 7 people (list their names), and comment on their blog to let them know that you just tagged them.

Here are my list:

1. Love coffee. My routine: coffee in the morning after waking up, coffee in the afternoon around 3 to 4pm, and coffee at midnight around 12midnight to 1am before reclining to bed..
2. In rare cases, just for fun, I mix 1 bottle of rhum or brandy (e.g. Emperador) with 1 liter of chocolate cold milk (like chocolait or selecta), then mix it with coffee…hmm it tastes like cappuccino-baileys drink..
3. My height is average so I’m fond of wearing shoes or sandals with heels, including slippers.
4. Occasionally, I put egg white or beer to my hair, just like a spray net, for stronger hold.
5. I put my whitening facial cream in to my underarm.
6. I like to be an instant millionaire by winning lotto, but I don’t buy/bet lotto or sweepstakes.
7. I love to eat pomelo dipped in rock salt.

Would love to hear about your weird things: jacky, chelle, xiaopei, LauriLiaw, claire, AnnaRhea, iceah..

Dedis' 18th Bday

>> Saturday, October 18, 2008

Marian Grace de los Reyes Celeste. She is my second niece of four. We simply call her "dedis". Today marks a new world for dedis because she celebrates her 18th birthday.

Dedis likes barbie dolls, disney characters, and many more. We look forward that dedis will start thinking maturely and release all the childish thoughts behind, as she turns 18. The whole event/party is dedicated to her Lolo Bart and Lola Vicky, who sponsor all the expenses. The efforts of her parents are also recognized - her Mama Alodie and Papa Gigi, and to her four siblings: Giging, Wenwen, and An-an..

Wish you all the best dedis as you grow beautifully. Gudluck and GodBless for your life ahead..


Mama's special day

>> Friday, October 17, 2008

Today, 17th October, is my mother's birthday. I just reminisce the good and bad times we spent together all through this time, and oh, it's quite meaningful.
Although we don't see our mother personally, since we're miles away, we still celebrate her birthday the usual filipino way, ie., we prepared cake (blown by my nieces in the absence of my mother), pancit, adobo, suman, nilagang karneng baboy, etc. A phone call from our mother completes the celebration.
For our dear Mama, happy birthday! Wish you good health, sound heart and mind and bountiful blessings... GodBless.


A good spot to spend a holiday

Panama, a republic in Central America. The Panama City was founded in 1519 by Spaniards. It is the capital and largest city and is situated on the Pacific coast in the central zone. The population is of mixed Spanish, black, and Native American descent, but includes indigenous people and immigrants from various parts of the world. About 70% of Panamanians are mestizos – people of mixed European and Native American descent, or mulattoes – those of European and African heritage.

Spanish is the official language of Panama. This is spoken by all but a few Native Americans. Part of the population, about a quarter speaks English – the language of the West Indian minority and the international business community.

70% of Panamanians are Catholic and Protestant account for 12% of the people. Religious faith and practice does not create conflict in Panama, instead, it guarantees freedom of worship.

The biggest festivities in Panama occur at Christmas. Other important holidays include independence day November 3 and Firemen’s Day of May 5. When it comes to food, the typical meals include sancocho – this is a chicken soup with native cereals and tubers, tamales – made with mashed corn, plantains, and native fruits. Their meals also include rice, beans, boiled meat, potatoes, and fried bananas.


Looking back the history - the people, the language, religion, and way Panamanians celebrate holidays, is great. There are still a lot of things to discover about Panama. Hence, this is the reason why it good to spend a holiday in Panama to unveil its rich culture and heritage. There are also a lot of attractions such as the Panama Canal, Islands and Beaches, Historical sites, and many more. For one who is interested in sports and other leisure activities, you may engage to diving and snorkeling or rafting and tubing just to name a few.

Staying or settling in Panama is not a problem. The restored Hotel Casco Antiguo is a fine place to stay while in Panama. The Hotel Casco Antiguo is the city’s oldest operating hotel. It has authentic Andalusian details, a full modern amenities, and prime location at the heart of UNESCO World Heritage site.

Hotel Casco Antiguo is a 5-Star condominium-hotel. It has 34 rooms with in-house concierge services. Said condo-hotel is seemly famous to invest nowadays.

One Coin

>> Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I was reading the Bible and I got struck by this bible story. It’s from Luke 15, verses 8-10. The title of the story is One Coin, and it says: ““Jesus told the people another story: What will a woman do if she has ten silver coins and loses one of them? Won’t she light a lamp, sweep the floor, and look carefully until she finds it? Then she will call in her friends and neighbors and say, “Let’s celebrate! I’ve found the coin I lost.” Jesus said, “In the same way God’s angels are happy when even one person turns to him.””

The meaning of the above story is very clear. God will be happy if one of His wicked children will turn back to him. Just like in our individual family, our parents will be very happy if their children or one of their children will return if lost. Most of the time, the family will welcome the long lost family member with a party to be participated by friends, relatives and other guests..

strong coffee and sweet chocolate

Sometime last September, I was in Manila for a certain appointment. On my way back to my home, I dropped by to this coffee shop for a sip of coffee while waiting for my plane. I ordered just a cup of coffee and two different slices of chocolate cakes: Double Chocolate Walnut brownie and Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar.

Double Chocolate Wlanut brownie.........Chocolate Peanut Butter bar

While having coffee and some cakes

Hmm, the coffee is great! and the chocolates taste delicious!... Minutes passed, as I was about to finish taking my coffee and mucnhing the cakes, I feel something bad.. Gosh, I got an awful headache.. I wonder what causes the terrible ache, does it because of the caffeine, which both chocolate and coffee have it, or maybe I was just anxious of my whole day activities....


Forgive and be forgiven…

On our day-to-day life, we do the basics – that is, meeting our physiological needs such as breathing, elimination, even sex.. As part of our daily activities, we sometimes, if not often, commit mistakes. The church call it “sin” – may it be big or small.

Since we are human and we are not perfect, and committing sin sometimes is inevitable, I always remind myself to a bible verse from 2Corinthians, chapter 2, verse 7-8 which states that “When people sin, you should forgive and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. You should make them sure of your love for them”. As always preach, God will be happy for us if we know how to forgive those who have sinned to us. If we can forgive others, hence, others will also forgive us on our trespasses.

7 anti-aging super foods

>> Sunday, October 5, 2008

Read on to find out more about the 7 foods to keep you young:

1. Chocolate, from cocoa, which is unusually rich in flavanols that help preserve the healthy function of blood vessels, thus, slows the rate of heart disease. Maintaining youthful blood vessels lowers risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia.

2. Blueberries : Research found that some compounds in blueberries (and other berries) mitigate inflammation and oxidative damage, which are associated with age-related deficits in memory and motor function.

3. Fish is an abundant source of omega-3 fats, which help prevent cholesterol buildup in arteries and protect against abnormal heart rhythms.

4. Nuts are rich sources of unsaturated fats, so they offer benefits similar to those associated with olive oil. They’re also concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals and other phytochemicals, including antioxidants.

5. Wine - Drinking alcohol in moderation protects against heart disease, diabetes and age-related memory loss. Any kind of alcoholic beverage seems to provide such benefits, but red wine has been the focus of much of the research. Red wine contains resveratrol, a compound that likely contributes to its benefits-and, according to animal studies, may activate genes that slow cellular aging.

6. Olive oil - Four decades ago, researchers from the Seven Countries Study concluded that the monounsaturated fats in olive oil were largely responsible for the low rates of heart disease and cancer on the Greek island of Crete. Now we know that olive oil also contains polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that may help prevent age-related diseases.

7. Yogurt - In the 1970s, Soviet Georgia was rumored to have more centenarians per capita than any other country. Reports at the time claimed that the secret of their long lives was yogurt, a food ubiquitous in their diets. While the age-defying powers of yogurt never have been proved directly, yogurt is rich in calcium, which helps stave off osteoporosis and contains “good bacteria” that help maintain gut health and diminish the incidence of age-related intestinal illness.
