2. How do you think that he will be remembered?
- The Jacko will definitely be remembered through his music
3. What was your favorite Jackson tune?
- I love all of his songs but I love this one more.....Man In The Mirror
4. Did you watch the original Charlie’s Angels?
5. Did someone you know have that poster of Farrah?
- Yes, my uncle
6. Did you consider her battle with cancer heroic?
7. Were you a fan of The Tonight Show Starring Johnnie Carson?
8. Did you like Ed McMahon on the show?
9. What else will you remember McMahon for?

Time really flies fast. It was my daughter Symone's first day of school last Monday. It was just like yesterday when she was so excited for her summer vacation. Last summer I made up activities for my little girl. I enrolled her on a reading enhancement class to improve her reading skills. I always make it a point that every summer my children has to do something productive like taking them on trips, bringing them to zoo and bringing them to art classes. Next summer hubby and I are considering to have my daughter experience a summer camp. We know that she is old enough to join such events that will improve her personality.
There's this new Nickelodeon widget that helps parents like me to check out some local Summer Camps to make their child's summer worthwhile. Local summer events can be checked out using this Nickelodeon widget. Just enter your zip code and you can find fun activities not just for your children but for your whole family.
Check it out because they are also holding a contest. I entered the contest and I hope to win of their cool prizes. I also told some of my friends to check out this Nickelodeon widget and enter the contest too. Who knows maybe one of us will be lucky enough to win.
My cousin in law sent me a booklet about Influenza A(H1N1), it's symptoms, it's signs and some helpful tips on how to prevent it. If you want to have a copy just click the image below. This Flu Booklet is on .pdf format.
Thanks to Toni for sharing this.

5. These words apply to me: tough and patient.
6. This morning the sun was shining.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a quiet evening with my family, tomorrow my plans include going at my friend's place and Sunday, I want to just stay home and sleep!

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.
Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce... I raised the topic calmly.
She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?
I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Dew. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!
With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.
She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Dew so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.
The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Dew.
When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.
In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce.
She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.
This was agreeable to me.. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.
She requested that everyday for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.
I told Dew about my wife's divorce conditions.. . . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully..
My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy.. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mummy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.
On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time.. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was greying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.
On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me.
On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Dew about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.
She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.
Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.
Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mum out.. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally.. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.
But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy.
I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind... I walked upstairs. Dew opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Dew, I do not want the divorce anymore.
She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Dew, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other any more. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.
Dew seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.
At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card.. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.
That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead.
If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you..
If you do, you just might save a marriage..... !

1. All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting them to just listen and to obey their parents all the time.
2. Show me a good loser and I will show you a what a real winner is.
3. Eating my favorite blueberry cheesecake is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one time.
4. Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy living their simple lives and trying to make ends meet.
5. I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine work and leisure.
6. It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without meat or veggies in it.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a dinner with my family, tomorrow my plans include doing a last minute back to school shopping with Symone and Sunday, I want to hang out with some college friends!

DOH: Avoid wearing black, dark blue clothes to avoid dengue
06/09/2009 | 10:02 AM
MANILA, Philippines - With “dengue season" now here, health officials advised the public Tuesday to refrain from wearing black or dark blue clothes to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes carrying the dengue virus.
Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said mosquitoes are attracted to dark blue and black.
“Attracted ang lamok na nagkakalat ng dengue sa maitim ang kulay ... Kailangan siguraduhin nila na ang search and destroy (policy) sa kapaligiran ay ipaiiral [Mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors, especially black and dark blue. That’s why we must make sure we search and destroy their breeding places]," Duque said in an interview on dzXL radio.
He said that students whose uniforms are colored black or dark blue should exercise extra caution.
Duque reiterated his advice for the public to take extra effort in keeping their surroundings dry and clean, to prevent dengue-spreading mosquitoes from breeding.
He also said people suffering from fever or body pains should go to a hospital for a checkup right away.
“Medical emergency ang dengue, nakamamatay ito. Sa isang kagat lang baka ka matepok [Dengue is a medical emergency and is potentially deadly. You could die from one mosquito bite]," he said. - GMANews.TV

You Are Chips and Salsa
You are energetic and a real go getter. You can even be aggressive at times.
You love taking risks and taking the rewards. You are a true daredevil.
You can be a bit greedy in life, and you go after what you want.
You are courageous and edgy. You will do what others are afraid of.
I definitely agree with my result!

We talked about all the things that happened when we were still in college. I missed them so much. We planned on having a little reunion soon. I just hope that our college "barkada" will be complete on that event.
Anyway, I will be ending this post now because I still have to do some ec droppping. Good Night and till my next post!

A man was exploring caves by the Seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.
He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock . Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!
Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay balls. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left.
Then it struck him. He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!
It's like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn't look like much from the outside. It isn't always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.
We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy. But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.
There is a treasure in each and every one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, , then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.
May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay.
I am so blessed by the gems of friendship I have with you. Thank you for looking beyond my clay vessel.
APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE THING YOU HAVE
LIFE IS TOO SHORT AND FRIENDS ARE TOO FEW!
