Nung namamasahe palang ako papuntang trabaho, jeep ang lagi kong sinasakyan, masaya ako kapag nakakatiyempo ako ng kaskaserong drayber kapag medyo huli na ako sa oras ng trabaho ko, pero may mga panahon namang mabubuwist ka dahil parang wala nang bukas pa kung magpatakbo ang mga abusadong ito. Sana isipin din nilang responsibilidad nila ang mga buhay ng mga pasaherong nakasakay sa kanila.

Hindi ko maubos maisip kung bakit sa mga may karatulang "No Loading" "No Unloading" para maghintay ng mga pasehero, at 'pag nahuli naman sila ng mga traffic enforcer sila pa ang galit. Nangyari yun ng isang beses, nahuli ang sinasakyan kong dyip, nagkomento pa ang ibang mga pasahero ng "Nako, wala na namang pang meyenda ang mga yan!" Ganun na lang ba talaga kaliit ang tingin natin sa mga humuhuling ito? Kahit na kitang-kita naman kung sino ang may kasalanan sila pa rin ang masama sa mata ng publiko, bakit pa kasi nauso pa ang KOTONG cops! Nadadamay tuloy kahit na yung mga seryosos sa trabaho nila.

Sumunod na lang kasi tayo sa batas.

Hindi naman mahirap 'di ba?

Concerned people + Mother Earth = Earth Day

Concerned people + Mother Earth = Earth Day

I am a self-confessed obsessed in saving the Earth in my own little ways. I am an OC when it comes to these things. For example: plastics - if I believe it is still in a good condition, I would still use it over again (a hundred times if that would be possible!), scratch papers - I have LOADS of them! Especially when I was still in college. (I COLLECT them!) In this way, I can help save many trees. Also I never litter (I try my best not to!) . I hate it when I see people doing that.

So why not celebrate Earth Day everyday not just for one day? In our own little ways, we can help! Teach the young ones too - it's just easy, you don't have to be an adult to do it ;)

South Korean Black Day

Right, so they had White Day on March 14 (it is the opposite of Valentine's day), and for the month of April (14th) Koreans in South Korea celebrate Black Day. Very intriguing huh? Well, Black Day is for the single young people. They would wear black suit on this day - as if to announce to the world that they are single and very much available. They would also eat Jajangmyeon (noodles with black bean sauce).

I laughed hard upon hearing this from one of my students because I think it's kind of cute.

A martyr - not proud of being one

I don't understand why until now he's still being irresponsible. We already have a kid, he's the man, he should be the one who's making a living, not me. How the heck can we save for the future of our daughter if he will just be like that forever. I cannot do these things just by myself. I need help, I need a partner - not a man who would just bum around watching TV, drink alcohol, ask money from me for his vices. A martyr? Yep, you can call me that, I really am. But i am not proud to be one.

I just can't live him like that. Maybe for the fact that there is this thing called "love" that I feel for him, but because I feel pity for this guy. He didn't come from a role model family, in fact, you would not dream of becoming a part of them. His dad - used to have a mistress (and maybe until now!), would always hit his children right away when they did something bad, his mom - dedicated her life to majhong and "tong-its", she can live in a casino for 2-3 days without taking a bath, changing her clothes, or even without thinking if her kids have already eaten.

Life.. :(

cherry blossoms

my students told me that she will be attending a cherry blossoms festival - it's boring for her but sounds exciting for me. why? because of the fact that we don't have these here in the philippines (we don't have, right??) okay anyway, just hearing the name of it makes my heart jump, i really really wanna see one. :)

recharged once again

after a not-so-long vacation, it's time to work again.. it's really difficult to wake up in the morning - in fact, i hate it - i really am not a morning person.. sheesh.. how many times do i need to rant about this? but good thing, i really enjoyed the holy week, it felt good to have your energy recharged - very refreshing for me.

Rocket fuel chemical found in baby formula

By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer - Fri Apr 3, 3:36 AM PDT

ATLANTA - Traces of a chemical used in rocket fuel were found in samples of powdered baby formula, and could exceed what's considered a safe dose for adults if mixed with water also contaminated with the ingredient, a government study has found.

The study by scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked for the chemical, perchlorate, in different brands of powdered baby formula. It was published last month, but the Environmental Working Group issued a press release Thursday drawing attention to it.

The chemical has turned up in several cities' drinking water supplies. It can occur naturally, but most perchlorate contamination has been tied to defense and aerospace sites.

No tests have ever shown the chemical caused health problems, but scientists have said significant amounts of perchlorate can affect thyroid function. The thyroid helps set the body's metabolism. Thyroid problems can impact fetal and infant brain development.

However, the extent of the risk is hard to assess. The government requires that formula contain iodine, which counteracts perchlorate's effects. The size of the infant and how much formula they consume are other factors that can influence risk.

The study itself sheds little light on how dangerous the perchlorate in baby formula is. "This wasn't a study of health effects," said Dr. Joshua Schier, one of the authors.

The largest amounts of the chemical were in formulas derived from cow's milk, the study said.

The researchers would not disclose the brands of formula they studied. Only a few samples were studied, so it's hard to know if the perchlorate levels would be found in all containers of those brands, a CDC spokesman said.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it was considering setting new limits on the amount of perchlorate that would be acceptable in drinking water. A few states have already set their own limits.

The EPA has checked nearly 4,000 public water supplies serving 10,000 people or more. About 160 of the water systems had detectable levels of perchlorate, and 31 had levels high enough to exceed a new safety level the EPA is considering.

North Korea is planning to launch missiles

I don't understand why North Korea would want to test some missiles, what is their purpose?? Do they really want to be that powerful? Before they do this thing, they should also consider the effect that it will bring to other countries. Many people will get affected, they should not be selfish.. This issue is very alarming.. Very, very alarming I could say.

What to do when you are trapped in a lift?

We never know when and where accidents will happen to us OR people around us.

Read on and hope this piece of information may help any of us when things do happen to ourselves, our friends and our loved ones.

One day, while in a lift, it suddenly broke down and it was falling from level 13 at a fast speed.
Fortunately, I remembered watching a TV program that taught you must quickly press all the buttons for all the levels.
Finally, the lift stopped at the 5th level.

When you are facing life and death situations, whatever decisions or actions you make decides your survival.
If you are caught in a lift breakdown, first thought in mind may be 'waiting to die'...

But after reading below, things will definitely be different the next time you are caught in a lift.

First – Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift.

Second – Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).

Third – Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line.

Fourth – Bend your knees
Reason – When the lift falls, you will not know when it will hit the ground, and it may result in whole body bone fracture.

Point 1 – When the emergency electricity supply is being activated, it will stop the lift from falling further.

Point 2 – It is to support your position and prevent you from falling or getting hurt when you lost your balance.

Point 3 – Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for your back/spine as protection.

Point 4 – Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. It can be attached to the bone part of the activities, but limit the scope of their activities in order to avoid injury.
Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimised from the severe pressure during fall.
