So many surprising things that I did not anticipate had occur in the span of more than a month prior to my vacation. It was a teary night for me after my bag was snatched by an unidentified man riding on a motorcycle. That incident was a shocking experience that I couldn’t forget in my entire life because of the valuables and cash that I’d lost together with my favorite office bag. All my ID cards were there inside my wallet: PRC, Company, Voter’s, Philhealth, Postal, TIN, etc. (It was a good idea that I left my SSS ID in the province) Even my two cp’s, my cash for my plane ticket and other personal belongings including my grocery had not been spared from that snatching incident.
For now, I am grateful for no harm had happened to me and there is my family who shows their care and concern without thinking of what I’d lost, but was after for my safety. For several days that I was deeply affected by the said incident; and to shed some tears was my outlet to alleviate the emotional distress that I was enduring that time.
This is my time to get over the tragic event that had passed and face everything squarely. It is unworthy to rewind what is distressing in the past. Lessons from those experiences are what matters. Expect that there are always people who will hurt us in a way we do not imagine; whether planned or unplanned, but God had gifted us with a power of discernment. His wisdom is sufficient enough to guide us accordingly.
I find it difficult to distinguish who is and who is not. I observed that some are aiming for their self glorification (pagpapabango ng sarili), that’s conflict of others is like a chance to advance themselves.Tsk..tsk..really hard to find true people in this vast world! Baka meron p nga s Mars.. hehe

These are the possibilities that can happen with the current Cybercrime Act. For just sharing or retweeting something online that contains criticisms - you can get jailed for 12 YEARS.
Let me just point out that we need a Cybercrime Prevention Act. However, the inclusion of these problematic provisions on cyber-libel will just curtail a fundamental principle of good governance: CITIZEN PARTICIPATION.
The last time I checked, we were still a democracy—we want empowered citizens, not scared and passive ones.

Political dynasties, what’s a voter to do?
So the Philippines is not the only country with political dynasties. But what makes our case stand out?
A research done by the Asian Institute of Management shows we have too many of them compared to Asian neighbors and First World democracies.
The study does not make any generalization that political dynasties are good or bad, but it poses questions to the voters: Is this a dynasty that you can trust to bring you farther on the road to progress? Or is this a dynasty that limits your economic potentials so you will always find them relevant? Or would you rather take the risk with a new face and a new name that might be able to bring you beyond the bend?

Lance Armstrong admits to doping in Oprah interview: source
After a decade of denial, Lance Armstrong has finally come clean: He used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.
The disgraced cyclist made the confession to Oprah Winfrey during an interview taped Monday, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey’s network.
The admission Monday came hours after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded and took global on the strength of his celebrity as a cancer survivor who came back to win one of sport’s most grueling events.
The confession was a stunning reversal, after years of public statements, interviews and court battles in which he denied doping and zealously protected his reputation. (Nathalie Magniez/AFP/GettyImages)
Exhausted from a long work days, this night can give me a sigh of relief. When I am tired physically and mentally, like anyone, my whole body cannot function effectively. Rest is a part of anyone’s life. It’s a necessity in order to live a healthy and optimistic life.
I visited an eye clinic (ophthalmologist) more than a year ago and the doctor advised me to come back after a year or if necessary if there’s improvement or not in my vision. My first wear of eyeglasses had no good effect on my eyes because I occasionally felt dizzy and would prefer not to use it instead. After more than 10 months, I went to a new eye clinic and after the examination, decided to purchase a new eye glasses because the vision of my eyes went up from 100 to 125 now. So my supposed- to- be a year of using it is counting another…
If there’s a change or not(?) is none of my business as always. I would be the one to change if there is a need to. I am thankful to God for my gift of life and should live the right way in return. It’s impossible to forget everything but we can always forgive the wrongs in the past not only to mend the wound of anyone we’d unwarily hurt but also to heal our own self.
