Stay away from Depakote

My wife loves to watch the early Weekend show entitled " Good Morning Doc". She makes sure that every Saturday morning she will be up early to learn various helpful healthy tips. Recently she learned that there are lots of medicines already out in the market that have various side effects . She shared to me that Depakote, a commonly prescribed anti-seizure medication, has been found to increase the likelihood of babies being born with serious birth defects when taken by the mother during pregnancy....depakote lawsuit is a common lawsuit filed by some victims. The TV show warned the pregnant women to stay away from this drug.

Rt : I am not Gerrard... I am John...

Actually this shirt was given to me by a friend who came from  UK.. Gerrard is his favorite football player.


Signs of Times

The recent events around the globe brought a buzz among the Evangelical today. The destructive magnitude 9.0 earthquake in Japan which was followed by a Tzunami that brought about 18,000 deaths, the Middle East unrest, the 8 months drought in China, flooding in Australia, the famines and pestilences happening around the world today are clear indications that what was written in the Bible with regards to the signs of the end of the age is now at hand.

Summer Lessons

Summer is here! Our kids are just jumpy this time leaving behind all those school home works, assignments and looking forward to enjoy their summer. They ask us to buy them the new ps3 game for them to enjoy. They have invited their friends to join them in a game tournament and they just love the thought of winning! Hahaha..our kids. We just couldn’t say no to them since they have done very well at school. Both of them belonged to the honors’ class and they are serious in their studies. This is our gift for them this summer.

And while enjoying PS3 games, our kids will enjoy summer lessons too. Our son will enroll in a guitar lesson and our daughter will enroll in a voice lesson class. We want their summer to be fun and at the same time educational.

Thankful Thursday


I am thankful  that the youth series of Evangelism Seminar is dong well.  Each of them were eager to learn the Basic Doctrine, the 4 Spiritual Laws and other topics of Evangelism Explosion. This Sunday will be the culmination of the program. We will be expecting around a hundred young unbelievers  for the revival seminar. Thank you Lord for equipping the preachers and the workers. Thank you  that once again  the Holy Spirit will move on that day!

I missed the Gym ....

How I longed to go back to the gym and pump those irons. Yes, I spent almost 6 years working it out in the gym. Our local work out gym is quite affordable and I have many friends there. I enjoyed sweating it our with my friends and seeing the results after months of intense workout.One of my buddy who is a heavy lifter offered me creatine powders to boost my workout performance and gain those muscles we all wanted to have.

It’s been 5 years since I visited the gym and I missed it a lot. I have to console myself in working alone in our home with my light workout equipments to maintain those muscles at at the same time maintain also my strength.

Beauty Overhaul?

My sister arrived from Manila for a three-day visit here in our place. Their family temporarily transferred to Cavite since their school in Bukidnon offered them to study and finish their doctoral degrees at the Adventist University of the Philippines in Cavite. They have stayed there with their kids for two years now and next year will be a triple treat and celebration since my sister, her husband and their daughter will graduate from their respective studies.

We were invited to attend their graduation next year in March and as early as now, we are looking for airline tickets sale so we could witness it. Yes, one thing they must do before the big event is to visit a beauty shop and have a beauty overhaul...hehehehe.

Upgrading of Office Equipments

We’re all looking forward with great excitement and expectation for our Church’s Silver Anniversary and Thanksgiving celebration this coming August 21, 2011. This would be the grandest event of the history of our church and we are all doing everything we can to make this once-in-a-lifetime activity worth remembering. One of the busiest place in our church is my office where transactions, deliberations, meetings and printing of documents occur. Important documents for the celebration must be printed and some scanned in order to be ready for this occasion.

Our technical head one day ask me if he could purchase a scanner software for our Windows 7 ultimate OS so he could do his work in scanning all important documents. The church board decided to buy or purchase all necessary equipments and other needed things for the improvement of our work. This would surely give us our much needed upgrading of office equipments.

Continiuous Printer Ink Sytem

It is better to convert printers with a continuous ink system . It will save you around 90% compared to purchasing by ink cartridge. Just like yesterday, my son projects involve a lot of photo prints but the ink level seemed unmoved.   Unlike   before, a catridge  will only print a maximum of 10 pages. So what are you waiting for? Convert your printers now!

Scenic View from the Ferry


Taken while we were inside the ferry from Dumaguete City to Dipolog City last November. I can not help but  be awed at the beauty of God's creation.This was my first time to see a rainbow  in the middle of the see. Looking at the scenery reminds me of the austria holidays on TV.


Camping and Caravan Parks

One thing that's lacking in our place are static caravan parks. I saw in one of the travel program on cable table some famous camping and caravan parks in the U.S. and U.K. I can not help but wish the same to have in our place.It's a cheaper way to bond together as family and friends. We tried camping with our relatives before and truly it was  fun.

Sunday is Worship ... and malling for the kids

Tomorrow is another day to celebrate God's faithfulness and goodness in our lives. Each Sunday is a celebration for the whole week of challenges and victory. For our kids Sunday is Worship day as well as mall day. After the service, it's our routine to have our lunch at the mall. My wife requested to see Discount Blinds at the home section of SM. I hope to see sales from the hardware section too!

Seeking for Alternative Medicine

Alternative Medicine is fast becoming a trend and a practice here in our country. The Japanese , Thailanders and Koreans introduced Chiropractic technology as an alternative to the mainstream medical practice. Alternative Clinics are sprouting in various areas in our city and people are flock them in order to find the magic wand of healing for various illnesses. Some Clinics offered a crash course on chiropractic technologist program to meet the growing demands of people seeking for alternative healing . My mom who’s now in her 70’s used to visit a chiropractic clinic with her friends in order to find the cure for some minor back pains and other body illnesses such as high blood pressure and heart problems.

UK Visa Application

A friend who will be applying a VISA in the United kingdom is asking my help in complying his application. Student Visa is the easiest way to enter UK but it's costly .Anyway, he is determined to follow his dream that is why I am helping him secure a tenancy agreement in one of the apartments in london. I have lots of church mates their who have lots of connections, so securing this document is not a problem. My UK Visa application 5 years ago was an experience I will never forget.

Orange Window Blinds?

As I have mentioned in my post below, I am helping my wife look for window blinds that will harmonize with the color of our newly upholstered sofa . I am thinking of chocolate brown since our office wall is cream but my wife suggested a more striking color like orange or green. I guess it's kind of weird to have window blinds with that color. Anyway, I didn't argue with her because I know the colors she has in mind are for sure not available in our local stores...

Campus Symposium

Forgive me for not updating my site regularly. I have been busy lately with the True Love Waits Campus Symposium. Thanks to all the young people of BHCCCI for their zeal in serving God. You made my load lighter by doing the leg works. Tomorrow's schedule will be Puntod National High School. See you there as early as 7 a.m. Got to go and help my wife look for roman blinds design online.

Gold Jewelries for my Birthday

My mom was given a gold coin as a token from the boyfriend of my sister who is working in the United States. It was such a very nice gesture from a person who is living far from our place. I admit that gold here in our place is very important so that you can just see many jewelry shop sprouting everywhere offering variety of gold jewelry designs.

Even my friend who is a businessman offered me a business opportunity to sell gold products but I declined since it was not my profession. But it is my wish to wear a gold bracelet, and a gold necklace for my 43rd birthday this coming May 2 from my dearly beloved wife. I would surely treasure for the rest of my life.

Wedding Proposal

Hahahahha…I did jumped with joy and excitement as my sister who’ve been in the U.S. for 11 years told me that she’s finally going to get married! Her boyfriend proposed to her the other night and she was just overwhelmed. She called me at once and I could not just contain my joy for my beloved sister.

She’s the youngest in our family and I’m really happy for her. We have been waiting for this time and waiting is not that easy. What I mean was, the excitement of hearing the news of the proposal is simply overwhelming for me too. Where's the honeymoon? Villas in Spain are waiting for you!

My prayers and support to my dear beloved sister…We love you Genelie ! That’s what we fondly called her. WELCOME TO THE CLUB….go to the world and multiply!

Lina's Chandelier

Yesterday we visited the house of our friend who just arrived from Singapore. It’s his birthday and he invited us to have a dinner at their house. We went there with some church friends and had a grand time enjoying our fellowship. At one point, I and my wife talked about something which both of us agreed to do for our house. 

My wife notices the chandeliers in the sala and kitchen area of our friend’s house. She told me that it’s her desire to install a chandelier in our living room. I agreed to her idea and planned to have it installed at the end of this month.

To a Higher Level

I wish to enroll on computer short term courses like Photo shop and Web Design . Looking at a friend making graphics layout at Photoshop seemed so easy but when he tried to teach me, I could not move on to the next step. I know how to draw manually .. this time I wish to bring it to a higher level.

To Baguio City

Thanks to our local airline , we were able to get a very...very low fare seat for 10 person . The Pastoral Staff of our church will be going for a 4-day vacation in the summer capital of the Philippines - Baguio City. As early as now, we are looking for a luxury log cabins for our accommodation. Thank god for this get-away.. we deserved a break!

My Main Calling


I am very happy for my blogger friend. He's bringing his online job into a higher level by engaging into a new job as search engine marketing officer. Good for him since  this job offers a lucrative salary  in higher 5 digits. Actually he's a teacher  by profession but  because he has a good command in English and also  good in  computer works, he was hired. He encouraged me to apply online but I  am not interested. Blogging is only a happy , it is not my main calling.

Steel or PVC Cabinet?

I told my wife to but Rack Cabinets  at home.   This is now badly needed since   our book shelve is already crowded with our kids books and projects. My wife is fond of recycling   things   folders, envelope, illustration boards and other school supplies.  I  preferred steel cabinet  for safety and durability     but she is thinking of something cheaper , the one  that is made of PVC .

Red Coco in Boracay

I wondered why Cebu Pacific Airline does not offer promos outbound from Boracay. Last Feb. 25, the airline surprised the Filipinos with a P25 Seat-sale for all domestic destination . I tried to book for Cebu-Boracay round-trip ticket but the promo was applicable only for Cebu- Boracay or Manila - Boracay Trip. I really loved the   holiday villas   in that place.. specially the red coconut cottages. 

I will be here....

According to wikipedia, it is the method of creating an experience for a website with a goal of increasing the percentage of visitors that convert into customers. These will likely apply to site which sell products and services.
