"YES to LIFE, NO TO MINING"

Standard

Last Saturday, November 26. 2011, I attended the Visayas Blogging Summit.  One of the speakers of the summit was Miss Gina Lopez.  She talked about the effects of mining here in our country most especially to the people and to our nature.

She showed us some pictures and videos that has really moved us and touched us.  I never really thought that what mining has brought into our country aside from destroying our environment of course.

One picture that has really moved me so much is a picture of a little girl whose feet was infected with something because of the poison that got into her system.  Everytime there was a fish kill, the little girl would go into the sea.  Before the little girl's feet got infected, the little girl loves to run, to play outside, to dance, to sing.  But because of her condition, she can no longer dance, play and run.

Aside from health issues, mining is one of the reason why our country has a large percentage of poverty.  Because of mining, the good land that the farmers could have used to plant some crops are now wasted.  The land can still be planted but there are no longer nutrients on the land.

Do we really want that time will come that our country's natural resources will all gone?  If NOT, then please do sign up the online petition in fighting against mining in Palawan.  http://no2mininginpalawan.com

Perfect Two – Auburn

Standard

You can be the peanut butter to my jelly
You can be the butterflies I feel in my belly
You can be the captain and I can be your first mate
You can be the chills that I feel on our first date

You can be the hero and I can be your side kick
You can be the tear that I cry if we ever split
You can be the rain from the cloud when it's stormin'
Or you can be the sun when it shines in the mornin'

Don't know if I could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me
And in time I know that we'll both see
That we're all we need

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high
And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause you are the one for me (for me)
And I'm the one for you (for you)
You take the both of us (of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two
We're the perfect two
Baby me and you
We're the perfect two

You can be the prince and I can be your princess
You can be the sweet tooth I can be the dentist
You can be the shoes and I can be the laces
You can be the heart that I spill on the pages

You can be the Vodka and I can be the chaser
You can be the pencil and I can be the paper
You can be as cold as the winter weather
But I don't care as long as we're together

don't know if I could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me
And in time I know that we'll both see
That we're all we need

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high

And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause your the one for me(for me)
And I'm the one for you(for you)
You take the both of us(of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two
We're the perfect two
Baby me and you
We're the perfect two

You know that I'll never doubt you
And you know that I think about you
And you know I can't live without you

I love the way that you smile
And maybe in just a while
I can see me walk down the aisle

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high
And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause you're the one for me (for me)
And I'm the one for you (for you)
You take the both of us (of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

When I Cried Because of the Song

Standard

This morning ate already took my itouch because she wants to buy it back.  I willingly said yes since I also want to save up my money for the beautification of my house.  Because of that, I ask her if I can have my ipod shuffle back so that I can still listen to music while working.  While I was listening to the many songs that ate has sync to my shuffle I then heard the song that made me cry.(I almost forgot I was in the office.  My seatmate must have thought that I am crying because of the pressure.  Hehehe!)  From the time that I heard the song, I kept on listening to it, up until now.  hehehe!  I really love the song.

Marry Your Daughter

Sir, I'm a bit nervous
About being here today
Still not real sure what I'm going to say
So bare with me please
If I take up too much of your time.
See in this box is a ring for your oldest.
She's my everything and all that I know is
It would be such a relief if I knew that we were on the same side
Cause very soon I'm hoping that I…

Can marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'til the day that I die, yeah
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
When she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

She's been here every step
Since the day that we met
(I'm scared to death to think of what would happen if she ever left)
So don't you ever worry about me ever treating her bad
I've got most of my vows done so far
(So bring on the better or worse)
And 'til death do us part
There's no doubt in my mind
It's time
I'm ready to start
I swear to you with all of my heart…

I'm gonna marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'til the day that I die, yeah
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
As she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

The first time I saw her
I swear I knew that I'd say I do

I'm gonna marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'till the day that I die
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
As she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

Birthday Party/High School Reunion

Standard

Last November 4 was Baby Gab's birthday(my high school friend Lea's Baby girl).  Lea invited me to Baby Gab's birthday party.  Prior to the day of the party, Lea instructed me to text Jovelyn, another classmate of ours when we were still high school, so that we could go together.  Jovelyn and I then agreed that we will meet on the day of the party in Ayala and that Althea, Lalay and Sheila will also be joining with us.  

On the day of Baby Gab's birthday, I texted Jovelyn, Althea and Sheila that I was already in Ayala.  Althea and Jovelyn texted back that they are on their way while Sheila texted back that she is already in Ayala and was waiting near the Acebedo Optical shop.  I told Sheila that I will be heading to CoffeeBean since Althea told me that Lovelaine was there waiting.

When I arrived at CoffeeBean, Jovelyn was already there.(she arrived at the coffee shop first since I had the itchy feeling to shop…hehehehe!)  While the two of us were talking, I kept on searching for Lovelaine amongst the people sitting inside and outside the coffee shop.  I saw a girl sitting outside the shop and was reading something, who looked like Lovelaine.  But I was in doubt if that was really her because she was with a Filipino chubby guy.(as far as I know, Lovelaine's boyfriend is French…)  When the girl finally looked up and saw me and smiled at me, I realized that she was really Lovelaine.  (Hahahaha!  Office mate ra diay to niya…and she was just here in Cebu for the SK convention because she was invited as one of the speakers…)   After a feq minutes of waiting, Sheila and Althea then arrived.  Lovelaine kept on communicating with Alta of her whereabouts because we were already hungry.  After an hour of waiting, Alta then arrived.(makakaon najud mi…hehehehe!)  On our way to Lea's house, Jovelyn texted Lalay that we will just fetch her since she was still in their house and it's on the way.

While on our way, we talked about our gifts to Lea's baby.  Most of us thought that Lea's baby was a boy because of her name.  Nyahehehe.  The worst part of it is, Jovelyn and mine's gift are baby boy's clothes.  Wahahahaha!(we still gave the gift…hehehehe!sayang naman…)

A minute after we arrived at the house, Maan arrived.  The birthday celebration turned out to be a reunion for us.  Hehehe!  After the party, we then headed to Parkmall, because Lovelaine wanted to have an adult party.  Hehehe!  But when we arrived there, we decided that we will just go to MO2.  We stayed there until the booze that Lovelaine bought were all consumed then we went home.

It was really nice to see them after for a long time.  As far as I can remember, the last time I saw them was during my high school graduation.  Hehehe!  I only had the chance to talk to them through facebook.  Good thing Lea invited me to her baby girl's party.  For me to be able to see them and catch up in what is already happening in their lives.

Visayas Blogging Summit

Standard

Last year, after I attended the Cebu Blog Camp for the first time (I was really nervous when I attended the event, since I did not know anyone.), I’ve receive an invitation in my facebook for the Visayas Blogging Summit that was held in Iloilo.  I really wanted to join the said event at that time, but I was so reluctant since I don’t know anybody in Iloilo.  So, I did not register and was not able to join the blog summit. But this year, a friend of mine told me that the blog summit will be held here in Cebu, in SM City Cebu.  When she told me the news, I got excited but when she told me that it will be this November 26, I was disappointed because I had already planned something for that day.  But fortunately, that something was cancelled last week.  So when one of the organizers emailed to me about the event, I then immediately composed this blog entry that I will be submitting to them so that I can hopefully join the summit.

One of the organizers of the Visayas Blogging Summit 2011 is the well known group of bloggers here in Cebu, the Cebu Bloggers.  So for all the bloggers and non-blogger see you on November 26, 2011 at SM City Cebu.  You can check out further informations about the event on their website.  (Visayas Blogging Summit 2011)

I really hope I am not late to submit this entry. : ) Since I forgot to submit this last November 20. Nyahehehehe! Wish me luck. I also hope I could wake up early this coming Saturday since, the organizers instructed us to be in SM by 7 AM. Waaaaahhhh! No night life during Friday, if that’s the case. Hehehehe!
By the way, below are their sponsors and partners for the said event.

House Keys

Standard

For the past two years, I've been patiently paying the house that I bought in Camella.  The house is located in Miramonte, Pit-os.  Last Friday, somebody from Camella texted me that the electrical permit for the house is ready for pick-up.  So I went there to get it.  When I arrived there, the one who is in charge in turning over the house to the owners to me that she will be turning over the keys of the house to me.  Weeeeeh!  I was really excited when she announced that to me.  At long last, I can say that 50% of the house is already mine.(still 50 because I still don't have the lot title)

Froggy Frog Frog

Standard

When I went to Canlaon last weekend, I was able to experience the most unimaginable thing.  It was to eat a frog.  Nyahehehe!  Yes, you heard me right.  I ate a frog.  Frogs that were captured on the rice fields.  Slimy and hopping little creatures.  To make it worst, I even saw how the frog was being cleaned.

Well, the taste wasn't really that bad.  If somebody won't tell you that what they were serving are frogs, you won't really know it.  The meat was like chickens' and the smell is like fish.  The frog was fried and seasoned with just salt and many sili.  Well, that experience is really an unforgettable one.  Hehehe!
