What Are You Thankful For This Year?

>> Sunday, November 30, 2008

Got this tag from Marie. I appreciate for giving me this :)

Here is the tag:

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Because it means you've made a difference.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troublesand,
they can become your blessings.

Below are the seven (7) reasons to be thankful for this year:

1. My case at RTC Davao City was already promulgated last Nov. 27 this year. Thanks to Judge Fuentes. The accused is sentenced to a minimum of 11 years imprisonement, 6 months, and 15 days to 19 years, 6 months, and 20 days.

2. My father is cured from his cancer after several days of radiation therapy. The radiation was completed last July this year.

3. My father's MedicAid was approved.

4. Thanks to all who hated me so much all through this year.. You guys made me stronger than ever!

5. Thanks to all my loyal friends.. We made the friendship grow deeper.

6. Thanks to my family. We've been clinging together despite hard times in our life.

7. Thanks for the failures in life I have experienced. Failures broaden my mind and my faith in God grow deeper and stronger. It gives me the courage to hang on and endure the crooked journey of life..

Now, I am passing this tag to: Azlina, BestFriends, Cookie's Corner, Badet, JK and Nancy

iLASIK: The Generation i Procedure

>> Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Reading is part of our daily life. Many of us love to read any informative materials such as books, magazines, novels and the like. Hence, it is important to read so one can follow certain instructions, directions, or just be informed to some important things in life.

Having good eyesight is one criterion to maintain optimum reading ability. In this connection, there is a latest LASIK Technology in the market today which corrects eye problems. So now you may ask what this LASIK technology is all about.

Well, the modern LASIK, known as the iLASIK Procedure uses two lasers. Unlike the previous earlier versions of the procedure which uses only one laser.

The first two lasers used in the iLASIK Procedure is the wave-front technology that maps the unique characteristics of the individual’s eyes. Then, the second, the ultra fast, computer-guided laser that creates a corneal flap. Remember, there are no more blades that are used in this new procedure. The combination of these advanced laser technologies clinically prove that it provide an excellent safety and visual results.

Consequently, the NASA and the U.S. military has already been using this kind of painless and safe eye procedure. Many of their personnel have improved their vision after having the procedure, and now have 20/20 vision. These groups would also recommend the surgery to their other colleagues.

How about you, are you also interested to experience painless eye surgery? For more LASIK information, visit their site.



A Gloomy Day

>> Thursday, November 20, 2008

What a gloomy day!. I woke up early for my class. I lazily did my morning routine primarily because of the weather condition. It really affects my move. From dawn up to this time while I am writing this article, the rain never stop. Hmm, the weather caused me delays in so many things. But, I am still thankful because all my activities for the day were all done.


my new nikon still camera

Just this afternoon at around 3:30 PM, I picked up a small package from Johnny Air Cargo. This was sent to me by my mother. Its content is just a small camera. A Nikon still camera - to be exact, with complete accessories. What's so nice with this gadget is its pixel which is 8 megapixel. Aside from that, it has also a wider screen, 2.8 inch LCD. Oh, my mother also included an SD card of 2 gig. I always like my both parents because when they give something, they always make sure that it is complete with all accessories so that I can readily use the thing when I receive it.. Thanks!


The 10 Lifestyle Tips For Cancer Prevention

>> Monday, November 17, 2008

The WebMD cited these 10 diet and activity recommendations highlighted during the meeting of the American Diabetic Association (ADA). The following are:
1. Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight. Check your waist. It is recommended that men's waists be no larger than 37 inches and women's waists be 31.5 inches or less.

2. Be physically active for at least 30 minutes every day.

3. Avoid sugary drinks, and limit consumption of high-calorie foods, especially those low in fiber and rich in fat or added sugar. It is suggested to fill up on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

4. Eat more of a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes (such as beans).

5. Limit consumption of red meats (including beef, pork, and lamb) and avoid processed meats.
6. If you drink alcohol, limit your daily intake to two drinks for men and one drink for women.

7. Limit consumption of salty foods and food processed with salt (sodium). Don't go over 2,400 milligrams per day, and use herbs and spices instead. Additionally, processed foods account for most sodium intake nowadays -- not salt you add when cooking or eating.

8. Don't use supplements to try to protect against cancer. It's not that supplements are bad -- they may be "valuable" apart from cancer prevention, but there isn't evidence that they protect against cancer, except for vitamin D (according to K. Collins).

9. It's best for mothers to exclusively breastfeed their babies for up to six months and then add other liquids and foods.

10. After treatment, cancer survivors should follow the recommendations for cancer prevention. Survivors include people undergoing cancer treatment, as well as people who have finished their cancer treatment.
These tips are about reducing -- but not eliminating -- cancer risk. Many factors, including genes and environmental factors, affect cancer risk; diet and exercise aren't the whole story, but they're within your power to change.

Report Phone Numbers

One day, my mother, now in New York, called me up to ask if I was calling her for any emergency reason. I told her that I did not call her for any reason. Then she said that a certain number, not from her phonebook, kept on calling her three times that day. But every time she answers the phone, nobody answers on the other line. So I told her that whatever is the intention of that harrasing caller report to this site, www.reportphonenumbers.com. I said that on that site, you will be able to give the number of the harrasing caller, search the caller, and even give or post your opinions relevant to the caller.

How about you? Are you also a victim of unknown and annoying phone calls? Visit Report Phone Numbers site so you can trace who your caller is. Who knows that your caller might be from an insurance company, maybe just a wrong number, from a debt collector, or just from a phone survey company.

Things Are Not Always What They Seem

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.

The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room. Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.

As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.

When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife.

After sharing what little food they had, the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest.

When the sun came up the next morning, the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.

Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen?

The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused.

The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die.

"Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied.

"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall.

Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it."

"Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead.

"Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later...

Some people
come into our lives
and quickly go
Some people
become friends
and stay awhile
leaving beautiful
footprints on our
and we are
quite the same
because we have made a good

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present!
I think this is special...live and savor every moment...
This is not a dress rehearsal!
