Setting Free the one you love

"If you love somebody set them free... If they come back.. they are yours.. If not, they never will.."
That quote is one of my favorite piece of advice I'd like to give to a brokenhearted friend or acquaintance . Upon listening to others people problem,  I always came up a piece of advice that makes them smile and realize something better is coming and it is for good.
For six days since September 11,2011 I've been trying to convince myself .. It felt like all I learned and teach to others is gone and I don't believe myself anymore.. My mind tells me to do something right and good but my heart refuse and question myself if it is right...

September 12, 2011 almost 1 a.m. we are still at videoke bar and 1 more hour we need to go back home and only 14 hours left before her flight. I want to make it memorable for her..  I did the best.. I prepared this for month and so far my plan is working smoothly.. I gave my girlfriend a three white heart shaped balloon and an 8 shape pendant , etch with our initials...  I was shaking when I gave my gift and got tongue-tied.. I convince myself it is time and I should tell her.... it hard to say the word.. the words that is running in my mind from the moment I step at the videoke bar that waiting for the right time..  the words that keeps running my mind that makes my heart painful like a million tiny needles that is piercing..  I ask myself to find the last courage I have because time is running fast.. I look in her eyes, upon seeing her eyes I smiled and slowly put the pendant in her necklace and saying " this eight shape pendant means my infinite love for you and by simple saying thank you for everything and teaching me to love.."   I saw her smile and teary eyes, I tried to break the ice and put a little humor " stop crying or else I will nominate you in OSCAR award for best actress."  she laugh at me and said that I am so silly because she can see that I am teary eyes only response is a smile and I look at the people around me... I saw them glued watching us, I dont know if they are enjoying what they see or the guys is enjoying to see me torturing myself, while some of our female friends cried and I told them " hoy mga engot wala kayo sa sinehan.. Ha!ha!ha!"/" Hey you guys are stupid you are not in the movie house... ha!ha!ha!" and they all laugh at some replied just continue what we are doing...
      I need to break the ice because anytime my heart will explode that's why I divert my attention to my usher friends because the next move that I will do is painful... I gave her the 3 heart shaped white balloon and saying..... " this balloon..."  my heart became to heavy and I felt like someone is crushing my heart.. "this 3 heart shaped balloon means my pure love saying how much I love you..."  after saying that my heart beats faster...  "if you let this balloon fly, my love will soar high.."    now I can feel some warm liquid flowing on my face..  " if you set this balloon free, it means setting me free from this stupid feeling and setting you free.. free from your childish boyfriend.. free to worry me... free to do things.. free from everything without a guilty feeling... free from anger because what if I got tempted to someone or you receive a gossip or vice versa."   Upon saying that I made a face palm, fuck what did I say.. crap.. crap..
I look at her and saw her crying.. for the last time I crab the courage  "this balloon means I'm giving your freedom back!" I'm already crying and tried to get out in the room.. walk fast away from her.. I don't want to see her decision... I don't want that balloon to see fly... I'm already outside and my friends followed me.. I don't care to them, all I want is to vanish and go home.. I heard  my girlfriend shouting me at the window
"Hoy Gago ka! Ikaw ang best actor pinaiyak mo kaming lahat oh.. bumalik ka dito oscar best actor" / "Hey you Asshole! You are the best actor, you made us all cry here.. come back here OSCAR best actor."  My friends laugh and so was the others but I just remain standing outside.. the last thing I know is she's standing beside me and smiling.. I saw her untying the balloons and letting all the air near her heart and saying " now I know how much you love me. I will not let this balloon fly but instead I let the air out near my heart and breath it in, the air from your balloon will be the air of my heart to keep moving and to ease the loneliness in Canada while I'm away and this night will be remember."  I smiled but still she's leaving then she said "You can flirt to anyone while I'm away  but when I came back you will be mine and lets hope for the better!" she grab my beer belly, pinch me and pulling my love handle which is hurting me while she lead the ways upstair. I told her to stop because its painful, I mean pulling my love handle while going back to our videoke room.. she just replied " You punishment for being a Drama King of the night Mister Oscar best actor!" we all laugh and we made an agreement  "NO PROMISES! Let the destiny decide!"
somewhat my heart is refusing but smiling...

My Own Sweet Goodbye

I'm stuck at 9/11/11... and I freeze my time and got lazy on my life.... I felt like I'm an android robot.. just moving and doesn't care anymore.. Someone stole my heart.. I just want to stay in my room and do nothing but I need to continue my life..

Three months ago my girlfriend of 3 years gave me a good news that her dream came true and show me her papers. I saw how joyful she is as her dream to work at Canada as a nurse came true. I am happy to her and never entertained the thought that in just 3 months she's leaving. I tried to make it memorable and happy as the day flies.

On September 11, 2011 was the last day we are together because on September 12 she will be flying to Manila and September 16 she will be in Canada.

 I prepared a farewell party her friend and my friend went to videoke bar and sing our heart out loud and try to enjoy..
    I did try to enjoy but my heart starts to break as minute pass bye and became an hour that flies so fast. That night I'm wishing that the time to stop.. "If only I could stop the time."   I tried to fight the sadness that grows in my heart every minute and build a nice defense for myself so that no one could notice.. I gave my best performance to be a great pretender.. Pretending to be happy but my heart is crying...  I don't want to show to anyone.. but my last defense is slowly collapsing as our friends sang a love song...

This Love Story song.. I tried to ignore this song but every lyrics and every melody is deeply sinking in my mind and heart.. My gf friend sang this in our videoke marathon and constantly teasing me.. I tried to ignore and make fun but I end up listening to it.. for me to forget it I sung some happy and dance song but still this song mad a huge impact and my last of defense totally gone and became emotional...
One of my friend tease me "iiyak na yan! iiyak na yan!"/  " he will cry! he will cry!" and everyone in the room start that chant and made me laugh and told them " tanga di ako iiyak!"/ " Stupid, I'm not gonna cry!" and I laughed. Then Chen my jerk friend, ask us to sing our love song and I told them that we didn't have any official love song but I told them that the song "The Gift" would be appropriate for our love theme song.. I told them because "the gift" is the first song we heard when the first time we share our affection and told them we overheard that sung by a drunk passerby.. So whenever I tried to tease my girlfriend I tried to sing the song heavily out of tune and I never failed to make her frown because she constantly telling me I have the best awful voice and never heard me sing "the gift'' in the right  all of us who's in videoke private room laugh... then my girlfriend and I sang "The gift"

before the music start she beg me to sing this right and I told her that I can't sing. My girlfriend thought I had an awful voice and already tease me with all our friend listening saying " walang lalabas! habang kumakanta ang pinakamamahal ko, sabay sabay tayong dudugo ang tenga!"/ "No one will leave while my beloved is singing! together we will have a bleeding ears!" and they all laugh.. I just smile and told them "tonight you will hear an angel sing, because I have the most beautiful voice  from all of you people who's in this room! You will envy my golden voice." I told that very confident.. and what I got, a replied  "in your dreams!".. we all laugh... 

As the song start they all glued listening to us.. I sang "The gift" with all my heart and my girlfriend was so surprise. She cried while I'm singing and I wipe her tears. As we sing the our love song her tears keep falling and we forgot that we are not alone in the videoke room I ask her why she is crying her replied to is that she now understand me 100% and she can feel my sadness and the way I sing is clearly made an etch to her heart saying how much I love her... that moment... I felt the time stop.. just the two of us.. I hug her.. and kiss her..
     I told her remember you asked me if I love you? and I replied your question with an answer of question asking "why all of a sudden you ask that?" and I gave another answer with another question "you think what I'm doing to you is not enough? Is action speaks louder than word? I remember that night clearly and never forget the looks in your eyes. You want me to mum the words I LOVE YOU and I disappointed you. Honestly I don't want to mum that word because I don't know what love is and I'm not sure what it is. All I want is to be with you after a long day and just to see you for a second makes my heart happy.. just to hear your voice in my cellphone makes my day... every morning I receive a text message from you make my day happy and pleasant no matter how awful the world around me.. you are my inspiration when I'm having a bad day.. you made it a very colourful for 3 years and six months. That time you ask the question if I love you. I'm not sure if that is love but all I want is to hold your arms and be with me. Tonight I know the answer very well as we sing "THE GIFT" and I'm hoping that you will feel it.. but if its not enough I'm proud to say THANK YOU for teaching me how to love and for showing me this weird feeling. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. " upon seeing my girlfriend eyes overflowing with tears. I told her I don't want to see her crying because of me.. not tonight.. not tonight.. because I will regret this moment because for the first time I saw a woman cry because of me.. in front of me... and my girlfriend reply " I LOVE YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH" and she gave me the best hug.... .. I told her "this is not a fairy tale, I don't believe in fairy tale but I have this stupid feeling that I am the hero of this love story..." I smiled and we kissed...

My girlfriend and I heard a loud applause, a cheer and a teased.. upon hearing our friends voice we're back into reality that we are not alone..

and this song will be in my heart forever.. this song is playing while I'm showing my love...

Myth Buying

So much life conditioning inhibits the brilliance that is in you. Are you accessing all that is available to you? As a brilliant coach, as a brilliant human-being, as a brilliant spiritual being, as a bright light in the world, you have access to so much abundance. Are you living it? Are you breathing it? Do you believe it in every fibre of your being?

Or are you buying into the myth, the illusions? There are so many things aimed at people to help them build their lives and businesses; as though they are not enough themselves; as though the magic and mystery of existence were there to thwart your success. It's so far from the truth of the abundance available in the universe. It often shocks and surprises me to see this disturbing trend. Whatever the truths are, I'm here to say there is MORE!

Dismantle the illusions of safety, security, structures, that create a prison of expectation, necessity, and image. Get into the risk of playing in the mud, getting dirty, letting go and letting God, magic, Source, energy (whatever belief/name suits you). You had it happening once as a kid. Bring it alive again. Inside, you are yearning for it.

Get excited again about the adventure, this life. Get curious and playful with your day-to-day, with your business, with your home, relationships, and finances. If you resist and prefer safety, security, and rigidity, I'm curious:
  • So how's that working for you?
  • Where are you still dissatisfied?
  • What don't you want to let go of?
  • What's it costing you?

These thoughts, while universal, really are inspired by the tragic scarcity demonstrated in the world. Obviously it doesn't affect everyone, but we do see some living in scarcity. This is a boost to those that do need it and a reminder to those of us who get it but are still human in our experience.

Trackr : A dog hero of 9-11

     Today is the 10th aniversary of 9-11 World Trade Center attack. As for remembering the September 11 Twin tower attack I give a salute to all the heroes and volunteer for the rescue of survivors and victims. Also thumbs up and a big of applause to the rescue dog without them job will be harder.

 Trackr, pictured with owner James Symington, helped find the last survivor from the New York terrorist attacks in September 2001

    One of the best example is Trackr, A dog who was hailed for his heroism during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The faithful hound died in April aged 16, but before he passed away his owner James Symington entered a contest that offered to clone a pet dog for free. It currently costs owners about £75,000 to clone their pet.
Trackr was judged to be the most 'cloneworthy dog' after the former police officer from Canada wrote an impassioned essay about Trackr being a heroic dog of 9-11. Trackr was the first German Shepherd ever who has been sucessfuly  cloned.

Scientists said they have successfully produced five puppies who are genetic copies of Trackr, a German Shepherd who searched for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Centre.
The puppies called Trustt, Valor, Prodigy, Solace and Deja Vu, are aged between two and six months.
'Once in a lifetime, a dog comes along that not only captures the hearts of all he touches but also plays a private role in history,' Mr Symington wrote.
He said he hopes to put the five new dogs to work in search-and-rescue teams.

The Best Friends Again contest was run by Californian company BioArt International, who claim to have the sole worldwide license for cloning dogs and cats. They partnered  with the controversial cloning specialist Hwang Woo-Suk from South Korea to create Trackr's clones.
Hwang's team replaced the genes in eggs from random dogs with genes harvested from Trakr. They grew into embryos after they were stimulated and were then placed in surrogate mothers.
'Trakr's story blew us away,' said Lou Hawthorne, CEO of BioArts.
'His many remarkable capabilities were proven beyond all doubt on our nation's darkest hour.'
However, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said they had concerns about the health of cloned dogs.
They released a statement that said: 'Our current knowledge of animal cloning indicates that there are important welfare concerns at issue.
'Reports on the health and condition of mammalian animals produced by cloning have indicated a variety of anatomical and physiological problems.'

A trip to Cuyba ALMONICA

Thanks for blog auto post.. I'm still out for vacation and just want to post a quickly before my mobile phone ran out of battery.

As of this moment I'm busy showing the best hidden spot at Palawan from my Aunties, and the best is free.... lol... okay I'm a cheapskate.. the place is totally free for us and we didn't pay a dime since  the lucky owner of the cave is our friend.

As much as possible I want to show them more beauties but they get tired easily so we just visit beautiful spot one at a time....

First stop Cuyba Almonica... Cuyba is a bicolnon language ( a native language from Philippines) and Almonica is from the first two letter of each of the children of Manoy Pete..  It just recently discovered and devolop by Manoy Pete. Imagine he is unaware that the hectares of lot he bought didn't know that this exist, a thousands of years old cave that formed a stalagmites and stalactites..  The bizarre story of this unknown cave when the convicted murder escape and hide inside the cave... then later they develop it... Me and my friend discover it before Diego Gunsao (the convict who escaped) discover it. This cave is our mini sanctuary and we used to drink here with ginebra san miguel( a type a liquor that is affordable ) way back in 1995....
with my Ateng (eldest sister of my Mom)

The image above is the entrance of the cave.. that clear background minus the religious altar is our sanctuary way when I was younger and minor... lol... and we never have the guts to explore the cave.. but I got amazed when I saw that this cave is quite big and long...taken from my cellphone.. digicam got low bat
My proud aunt going deeper inside the cave.....

okay which way to go.... left or right?
After Manoy Pete develop.. err I mean clean the cave .... removing hundreds of snake, cobra.. Manoy Pete made the place as a sanctuary of the saints and a prayer room.. the place is solemn... here's my ateng posing with Virgin Mary.
This is my tita Agan.. trying to pose and honest my digicam got a low battery and ended up using my mobile phone for the entire trip to Cuyba... but still love the shoots... it still shows the beauty of the cave...
Okay it's unfair because they can stand proudly and as for myself most of the time I need to bend a little because I'm about to hit the stalactites... stalagmite and stalagtites grow 1 inch every 50 years.. wow imagine how many years to create this wonders...

You need to kneel or if you are a 6 foot you need to crawl if you want to explore more.. I tried to be funny because there is a bat cave here and spill some humor to my Aunts to go there to meet BATMAN and she said "LOKO LOKO KA" or " crazy" .. hahaha
Natural pond..  Manoy Pete said that this pond believe to be miraculous...

I'll be uploading more pic when I got my connection and went home... see yah.. more to come...

Chinese Scientists Want to Push an Asteroid into Earth’s Orbit

 Scientists at Tsinghua University in Beijing take it a “stellar” theorem to better deal with asteroids: knock peerless into the ambit of the Earth.

A offensive traverse when you lap up the multitudinous films that tell us of the dynamism risk created by a gigantic contact hurling seeing gap. Hexi Baoyin and his team, however, accept that by giving a slight nudge to an asteroid commenced close to the Earth, they blame make active it to alter to a small satellite.

One undifferentiated asteroid is 2008EA9, a 10-meter brunt bury a alike orbital tension seeing Earth’s. This would mean that energizing the velocity of the asteroid by, oh, 410 meters per aid could smash rightful into our orbit.

Doing this would allow the scientists to deal with the asteroid akin closer, and conceivably steady mine it. To paraphrase Professor Farnsworth from “Futurama,” there’s no safer animation than mining on an agency hurling thousands of miles per hour over space.

Eventually, the added spacecraft commit leave Earth’s circle and head ferry into opening. This is common, besides has been experimental with Jupiter besides its tendency to “catch” a passing beginning besides struggle bona fide preoccupation its orbit, albeit temporarily.

Scorpion Dish

Nutrition experts include found an economical way to help preserve the environment and also take care of both the food shortage problems.

That they make access an easily available offer on supper filled with calcium as well as health proteins, as lack of beneath fat.
Though your squeamish were able to effect away now - as the meal provide is actually insect.

Both the Historic Marriage considers scary crawlies would start looking about recipes following critics beneath Brussels recommended this bugs might remain one vital source of eating routine, Your daily Weekend Times magazine documented.
Indeed scorpion sauces and then cricket casserole would soon be resources, since the Historic Percentage has now presented £2.65million through one process to promote intake creatures.

They begin to contain and ordered the UK Evening meal Reasons Office to be able to investigate and eventually take a look at methods to create entomophagy - the intake associated with insects - one hottest choice.
You scientific studies realize that grasshoppers bring 20 per cent protein along with that little eight per cent fat, in comparison with lean floor beef's 24 percent protein as well as 18 percentage baggage.

Your assess institution that offers the most effective claim with regard to examine 'creatures since book options on proteins' will be granted your funds around the commission.

They will should assess condition and also safety, chance allergy symptoms and then which such proteins the creatures bring.

Professor Marcel Dicke, quality a side on Wageningen College, beneath Holland, is actually applying for your daily offer.

He said your Weekend Situations: 'By 2020 you may serve as selecting creatures in supermarkets.

'There is previously meeted both the introduction regarding eggplants, sushi, points population by no means take in here. I believe it will eventually attempt on ground-up pest beneath soup as well as burgers.'

Rescuing A giant Best Friend

Size doesn't matter when doing a good deed. 
A good example of this is  Sam Brear who's height is 5 ft. 1 inch has been hailed a massive hero after rescuing his huge best friend from drowning.

Hulking Adam Greening, 16, who stands 6ft 7ins tall and weighs 24 stone, got into serious trouble while swimming in the freezing-cold Aire and Calder Navigation canal, near his home in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Unable to keep his head above water he   
 cried out to Sam who, without a second's thought, leapt into the water to help.
The nimble little lad made several attempts to drag his big buddy onto the bank but found he just wasn't strong enough.
But after 20 minutes treading water to keep them both afloat Sam noticed Adam was slipping into unconsciousness so, digging deep, he somehow found the strength to heave his friend to safety. Grateful Adam said: 'I thought I was going to die, it was awful. It was the first time I had swum in a canal and I won't be doing it again.' 
His relieved mother Faith Greening, 58, said: 'We were told if they hadn't got him out when they did, he would have died. 
If he had been in there any longer he would have drowned.

'I'm so glad Sam was there, if it wasn't for his quick-thinking and super-human strength, Adam wouldn't be here now.
'He had one last try to get Adam out of the water and thankfully he must have been that frightened that he found the strength from somewhere.'  

The emergency services arrived moments after the dramatic rescue and treated Adam, who by then had lost consciousness, for hypothermia.

He was taken to Wakefield's Pinderfields Hospital where medics spent six hours raising his dangerously low temperature.
The two friends have lived on the same street  since they were toddlers and attract a lot of attention when they play football, ride their bikes and are seen out together.
Faith explained: 'Adam's always been big and always towered over Sam, but it's never affected their friendship. 
'You would think Adam would protect Sam, but it's always been the other way round.
'If Adam's ever been bullied about his size, Sam has stepped in and defended him. They really are the best of friends.
'Adam's like a gentle giant and Sam looks after him.'
Modest Sam said: 'I tried to get him out of the water but that was difficult so I held him up and kept him talking.' 

Adam is lucky to have Sam as his best friend to have such  a great courage.

The OCD Chopping Board

When I'm cooking it takes me a lot of time by cutting veggies because I want it to be exact same size  and carefully cutting pieces. It will take me 3 hours just to prepare the ingredients and mostly my friends or my brother help me to finish it fast..

The other day I saw this OCD chopping board and try to look it here in our local supermarket. The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Chopping Board is etched with ruled lines and a protractor for perfectly-sized portions.The lines on the beechwood board, show where to slice for ‘medium dice’, ‘small dice’, ‘julienne’ and ‘fine julienne’ pieces. This board will make the cooking fast and OCD chopping board is designed to take the anxiety out of cooking for those with exacting standards. 
It also has a printed protractor to cut sandwiches at perfect angles. So there's the tempting reason to buy this board.. :P

   This OCD Chopping board is raising controversies because some OCD association is against this for the reasons of the manufacturer is cashing in n the debilitating nature of OCD and they find it offensive.
    The sales of the OCD chopping board is booming and it help for some... and us for me I have no luck of finding one and my pschy friend told me I don't need it ....

Lesson for Under-age drinker

What is it coming too when the law can not uphold the law? with Under age drinkers

In their powerless efforts to control the rising problem with under age drinkers the numbers are increasing day by day. How sad for the parents who have tried in vain to put the kids on the straight and narrow.

These kids may as well be walking arm in arm with a suicide bomber.

Even adults over the years think they have mastered the art of self control when drink symptoms kick in taking the mind and body. I am sorry to say one drink to many and we all end up like a puppet on a string.

Coming back to the parents, we have the caring and not so caring mothers and fathers who encourage this behaviour by not knowing where the child is or what they are doing.

Your children's health is at stake here and you need to act now to keep them safe from the harm they are doing to themselves or that of others.
We are talking about the kids of the 21st century who I am afraid to say does not fear the police force unlike in our childhood.

Police patrol in two's; a two man army enforcement of the law is not enough to stop a riot.

Where is the guarantee for all law abiding citizens who are afraid to go out of their homes or to the local shop because of the masses of beer swilling louts making their lives a misery? Regular detours are taken because of crowded corners of gangs, if the police have no control over the behaviour from under age drinkers then what chance do we have?

We all know drink gives us all Dutch courage and if ever bravery medals should be awarded then give it to a drunk. No one will ever be has brave as he/she under the influence.

Lessons in controlling under age drinking.

Money. Money, Money

Money is probably the most commonly word used around the world. Money, without which lot many things cannot be done. If one has no money, one will have trouble even feeding oneself, leave aside shelter etc. What should be our attitude towards money? How much money should we accumulate and how much should we give away. How many morals and principals can be broken to get more money? And why should we earn more money than absolutely essential? There are many questions about money that come in to mind. Because since ages its money and power that has motivated human beings.

For few of us power matters more than money. And paradoxically money always brings power with it. But power may or may not bring in money. For example if you are the most important person of your country but highly principled, you will have total power but very little money. On the other hand some corrupt dictators have accumulated money beyond any imagination.

For few of us there are other pursuits than money and power. A good scientist gets more excitement with his inventions than any amount of money or power. For each of us there is a different motivator. Money seems to be one of the most common motivator. Cutting costs, raising prices and making more profits, this is the mantra of most of the industries and enterprises. Stock market has attracted people since long only because of the probability of making quick money. Why should lotteries become popular? Should not we depend upon our hard earned money? But lottery tickets are bought around the world. Buyers hope that they may get lucky and earn more money than they could otherwise on a single day. Gambling of all types is again driven by money as the only factor. We can list as many activities as we wish that are driven by attraction for money.

Does money and more money and much more money than others give more peace of mind? Does it give more happiness or more contented life? The answer is not yes in most of the cases. Rather more money brings in more problems. Where to invest? Which bank to choose? What about those who are always requesting for donations and loans? How to keep them away? And what to do with money after one has met all the needs? Buy a still bigger mansion or holiday all the year or begin collecting antiques?

Money. If you have less, you want more and if you have more you don't know what to do? That is the paradox of money.
