Alcohol grows on you... The longer you're taking it in, the easier it becomes for you to drink it without even cracking a silly face when it's too strong. :) Our body can metabolize a certain amount of alcohol every hour. And this depends on the person's weight and condition. So basically, the technique is to consume your drink slowly. n_n
Ethanol, contained in our alcohol drinks have dehydrating effects in the body. It's a diuretic ( a drug that causes increase in urination and flushes fluids from the body). This leads you to get headaches and become exhausted. You can also experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) when you're drinking because the enzymes from your liver are too busy metabolizing the alcohol that it can't supply our tissues with the right amount of glucose. This is why we're always craving for something to eat whenever we're drinking.
There are a lot of ways to prevent this from happening to you. Like;
1. Don't finish your drink too fast.
2. Drink plenty of water before and while you're drinking.
3. Avoid smoking when drinking.
4. Don't get too cocky...
5. Eat a full meal before you party.
Going through a hangover feels as if the world is punishing you for having too much fun the night before... You waste a day just coping up with it. So, drink wisely and take things easy...
During the 1960's, MJ (still a child) and his other brothers had graced the stage and bedazzled the whole world with his charm and talent. He was the youngest member of their group. Their songs like "ABC", "I'll Be There", and a lot more topped the charts during their time. As years passed by, Michael pursued a solo career and became bigger than ever. He was able to make 10 successful albums. One of which is "Thriller", which he co-produced. "Thriller" was his very big hit. Under it's belt are 25 platinum awards. It sold millions and millions of copies all over the globe.
Despite the success, the King of Pop had to face a lot of intrigues and scandals. The media had beaten him down. He even had to face a very controversial issue about him being a pedophile. During the time, his marriage with Elvis Presley's daughter had collapsed. After 2 years of being together, it lead to divorce. Also, who could forget the time when MJ irresponsibly displayed his youngest son on the balcony of a hotel. A lot of violent reactions had risen after he did that. Fortunately, MJ was able to settle the lawsuits and mishaps. Because of this, people had the belief that Michael was expereincing financial problems. He convinced the people more when he decided to close down never never land.
MJ tried very hard to live a private life. And even after these accusations was thrown to him, his fans became loyal and stable to provide Michael with the love and support he needed.
Michael Joseph Jackson is a legend. He was bigger than life. He moonwalked his way towards becoming the King of Pop. We hated him and we loved him. He was black and he was white. You can never put a GREAT MAN down. He became a global icon as an artist. No one could even come close in comparison to his energy and courage to become different. Thank you for the music MJ... Rest in Peace.

A big scare occured in our house today. My youngest sister came home with a fever. She has been having cough and colds for a week now and she has been suffering from sore throat for more than two weeks. We weren't that alarmed when she came up with the fever just earlier.. We were more worried when she had the sudden onset of rash in her arms and when she started getting chills. We were considering she might have the swine flue or dengue fever. So, my mom decides to take her to the hospital and I tagged along.
When we got to the said hospital, everybody was wearing disposable facial masks (except for us.. so we had to buy our own), There were a few patients there who had suspected that they may have swine flu as well. My sister was accommodated really fast since we were the first people there. The resident doctor did her assessment and acquired her medical history. She was very confident to inform us that my sister didn't have to undergo the swine flu screening because she didn't have it. She said that she was probably experiencing these signs and symptoms as a complication of her severe tonsilitis. We were very relieved to hear this! :)
We didn't even take up thirty minutes inside the emergency room. The resident doctor just did her assessment, health teaching, and prescribed some medications. Thank God it wasn't anything serious... :)
As I've mentioned, there was four of us... The other two was married with kids and the rest was single... I was of course in the single's corner. :) Both my married friends were talking about their lives with their new family. As happy as they may seem, they shared that they were having some problems in the relationship as well. See, both of the couples still lives with their parents. They still depend on them for food and shelter. Although they already have their respective jobs, they still stay there becaues they can't afford to live on their own. My guy friend which was with us is married to her long time girlfriend and they have a beautiful baby boy. He didn't work after he graduated because he's taking care of his son while his wife's the one going to the office and bringing food on the table. Because of this, my friend doesn't have a say on how he want things done... In addition to that, they're living with his wife's parents. I advised him to get a job but he said he couldn't bare to leave his son with just anybody. I honestly think that his wife's taking him for granted... And basing from his stories, I think she doesn't respect him at all. But who am I to blame her? I'd probably feel cocky if I knew I was the one wearing the pants in our relationship.
Then, my other girl friend who was also married shared her story... Fortunately, she and her husband are doing fine. They're happy and both working for their cute daughter. But they too still can't afford a place of their own... She hates having to deal with her husband's spoiled sisters...
Hearing those kind of stories from my friends helped me realize that I want to take things slow when it comes to this matter. I wouldn't want to end up going through what they were talking about. They've opened my eyes. Thank you!
I've heard that from friends that some internet providers have this problem occurs often in some areas. Fortunately, we weren't included in that list. :) Hopefully, this won't happen again. :(
Is anybody experiencing the same thing right now? Do share... Or does anybody here know how to fix this? Our computers' are just saying that there's an error with our DNS server. What's that?? I've been trying to figure this out for almost an hour now.. The longer I do it, the more I get frustrated with the situation.
We were suppose to dinner in a restaurant tonight after we attend the Sunday mass but unfortunately my mom came up with allergies and she wasn;t feeling well. So we decided to just stay at home. I wanted to do something special for my dad this year. I couldn't buy him a gift because I couldn't afford what he wanted so I just sent him a e-card and I wrote him a very long letter. :) I hope it moved him the way it moved me while I was writing it.
Dads are usually taken for granted... One survey proved that the least celebrated occassion was father's day. May be it's because fathers are not the type who'd like to go out and make a big deal about their special day. Most offsprings are are more closer to their moms. I guess its because most men aren't very vocal with their feelings compared to women.
Reminiscincg the old days, I could still remember the time when my dad always makes himself available just to fetch anywhere I was. He'd go out of his way just to be sure that I'd be hime safe. I'm very much impressed with my father because he's wise, smart, and forward. I realize that I'm my parents' most stubborn daughter. They raised me to become a very strong and smart woman, that's why I'll fight fair to get whatever I want in life. They've sacrificed sp many things for us that's why my only goal right now is to give them a better life after they could retire...
To my dad, happy father's day. We all love you so much. :)
Anyways, Statement magazine is a men's lifestyle magazine. The cover for their maiden issue was Priscilla Meirelles. The cover was pretty simple. Unlike other men's magazines, the covers usually involves hot ladies almost naked posing. I was surprised to see just a picture of their model's face blown up to fit the whole cover. (I'll follow up the picture, as soon as I get a hold of my camera).
The program started at around 9:30pm and ended til almost 11. It had a fashion show and some raffle. The program was a bit boring. They didn't anything to interact with the audience. In short, I've seen BETTER! LOL! Although they were right in choosing their host for the night (Mike Evers, model) ... The collection for their fashion show was really stunning. I forgot the name of the designer. After every dress was something better. It was classy, fresh, and wearable.
I wasn't able to eat during the event. I only got to drink 2 cocktails which was so lame... Compared to most of the events I've been to. It really felt that they were not prepared at all. Limited resources, and an unorganized programs. *Tsk tsk...* I won't shut my doors though. I'll only be expecting something better for next month's issue.
I've been a post-paid Suncellular user for almost four years. I had a post-paid account with Globe Telecom before as well. I couldn't afford to use them all at once so I decided to keep the Suncellular instead because it was a lot cheaper. Most of the people I talk with on my cellular phone are my family and closest friends... They have Suncellular too, so I could talk to them 24/7.
The only thing I don't like about the network is that it has a really bad signal everywhere!!! :( Especially when we're having bad weather, you can expect that the network will be more down. It's hard to get a good reception with this network... I guess, that's what I get for being CHEAP.. lol. There offers are really hard to turn down. Imagine, I'm only paying 350 Php monthly for their services. Compared to what I'm playing to Glob before, which is 500 Php/month. Not only that, with Suncellular, I could talk to my loved ones as long as I want (without having to worry of what my bill's going to be on the cut-off date). This is as long if theit using the same network too. So, it's basically unlimited text and call 24/7 from Suncellular to Suncellular networks. Plus, I have free 250 SMS free to other networks. I'm on the phone a lot. One time, I saved up almost 20,000 Php just being of using Suncellular. I was so surprised! I learned this information from the billing statements they send me every month. They have a list of all the calls I made for the whole month and a computation if ever they charged me with the regular rate.. lol. That's big, huh??!
Anyways, that still doens't make up for the fact that they have realldy bad signals. :)) And they also have bad customer representatives on their hotlines. That's why I don't like asking for their help, because most of the call-center agents I talked to was rude... Shame! I hope they could read this so that they could hire better employees next time.. hahaha! lol
Also, even though dogs can's speak at all... Their loving owners know what's on their mind.. I know whenever my Miko is thirsty, hungry, and ready to do his business. As if we've formed this special kind of way to communicate with each other. He's relationship with my mother is the same. I even think that there are times he loves her more than he loves me :), which I think is really cute. When Miko is coming uo with something, I notice it right away. It's not like him to just sleep all day. Miko and I play rough most of the time too. Sometimes, he scratches or bites me unintentionally. I get to his nerves sometimes and he never ever bit me so hard like as if he really meant it. I love my dogs very much and I know they only deserve the best out from me ecause they make me very happy. It's like going home to your own little kids :)
I was very happy with my Motorolla Razr once. I thought that that'll be the last cellphone unit I'll be using since I was very much satisfied with it's features. Sad to say, that it broke too :( This is the main reason why I don't buy really expensive units. It's becasue I'm afraid that it wouldn't last tha long with me too. But if I could just afford one, I'd buy myself an iPhone. :) I really like the way it looks.. It's just too expensive :( And besides, I'm sure I'll be dropping it a lot since I'm very careless with my things. :(
I'm not implying that women should lower their expectations for their men. There's nothing wrong with high standards. But we must admit, sometimes we go way above our league to the point that it sound ridiculous already. But then again, who in the right mind would become happy in knowing that she has to settle for less?? Right??!
It sucks that it reached our area. To think that it came all away from Mexico. We should really be careful now. Prevention is always better than cure so we must never let our guard down. Besides from putting on those surgical masks, let's protect ourselves by washing our hands regulary and properly. Especially if we've been outside. We could bring hand sanitizers wherever we go, making it more convenient to clean our hands. Alcohol is good too. :) (The external kind, of course!) Or we can carry "wet-wipes" inside our purses to wipe off bacteria and virus on the unfamiliar things before we touch it. I hope nobody gets sick anymore. This disease can cause people death. Be very cautious. Sighns and symptoms include, headache, colds, fever, and cough. If you're feeling under the sun and suspect that you're coming up with something like you've never had before, make sure you go straight to your doctor and have it consulted. It's very sad if you let your loved ones catch it too.
Sorry Twilight fans... PEACE! ;)
The weather had suddenly shifted. The summer sun fully left us. And a new season begins. It's been raining really hard here in Manila and we've been experiencing thunder along with it. Poor Miko, (above is his recent photo) my shih tzu who is currently seven years old has been very anxious for a few days now because of the loud thunder and pouring rain. I can't seem to calm him down, since he's extremely "panicky". This has always been normal for him whenever weather like this comes forth. He never got over it. He doesn't calm down even when you hold him close to you. He's evetually would want to pull himself out and find a comfortable place for him to lie down (which is NOWHERE). he looks so scared ad anxious that I come to a point where I feel helpless too because I can't do anything to somehow ease his panic. Worst part of it is, whenever he gets too scared, he poops and pees wherever inside the house. Recently, he likes doing it on my bed. :) As if, he just goes where the urge strikes whenever he hears something very loud. He doesn' really do that. Miko is potty trained, so he goes outside the house or iin the garage. Normally, he knows how to keep it in unless we forget to take him out. I wish there was like earmuffs for dogs for occassions like this so that no one would suffer. Someone would have to make the earmuffs very thick and genuinely noise-proof because our furry friends' sense of hearing is fifty times stronger than human. Cool huh?! Come to think of it, if we were in their position... We'd probably be very jumpy as well! lol! Could you just imagine, having to hear something very loud that you don't have any idea about??
Watch carefully. A cute moment for this mother and child. :)

I love the "Ang Spoiled" in Bubble Gang. This is when Angelina and yaya took a road trip. Yaya didn't want Angelina's head hanging outside of the car window. :)
