Sa kinabuhi, ang sakit o malipayong katapusan dili maoy hingpit nga katapusan, kon dili mga yugto lamang sa dalan sa kinabuhi tungod kai aduna pay laing anib sa matag sugilanon. Taas pa kaayo ang atong pagalatason, aduna pay daghang mga pagtuis, ug pagtuyok. Sa atong panaw dili gyud malikayan nga adunay mga yugto nga makalimtan nato ang Ginoo ug lain na ang mamahimong sentro sa atong kinabuhi. Bisan kanus-a taklahaw kini nga mahitabo sa atong kinabuhi ma bata o tigulang. Ug kini mao ang kamatuoran.
Ma atubang nato kining maong kamatuoran kon kita maminaw ug mo abli sa atong mga kasingkasing diin kita makadungong sa Labawng Makagagahum nga nakighinabi kanato ilabi na kon kita nahitumpalak sa mga dapit nga mangitngit. Makahimo kita sa pag-atubang sa kamatuoran kon kita maalamon sa pag-usab sa atong kinabuhi --- ug kon sa sayo pa permamenti nato kining gipaningkamotan. ug sa ato unyang pagpaningkamot ang Diyos naga-uban ug nagatabang kanato.

- Kon mo kaon kag pan gikan sa Tinong's Bakeshop mao ni ang mahitabo "once tasted always wanted"
- Kon mo kaon kag Senior Pedro nga inasal nga manok mao gihapon"once tasted always wanted"
- Kon mo suway sab daw ka ug sex mao sab ni ang mahitabo " once tasted always wanted"
- Apan kon makatilaw ka sa kaayo sa Ginoo mao ni ang mahitabo " once tasted never wanted"
And sad to say I am one of them. Many look at me as morally superior or an enlightened being and this is obviously self-approving. However, I got a harden heart against the least of my suffering brothers and sisters who are in need.
Oh God help me to open my heart and extend my hands to those who need help. AMEN

Well, its none of my business actually if i see lovers who express their intimacy inside the jeepney or in the public. I don't really care. Its their life not mine however i cannot also blame if there are people who would feel uncomfortable with PDA because people are raise differently. Why some couples insist to share it with the entire world? Is it really a cool thing to do in public?

Kon ikaw adunay sense of humor o gahum sa pagpakatawa swerte ka kai daghan kang mamahimong amiga ug amigo ug daghang ang mo abiba ug magtagad kanimo. ang pagpakatawa usa ka talento ug kina-iya nga dili kinahanglang eswelahan. kon ikaw nabantug na nga komedyante tanan nimong isulti maski dili ka kombinsido nga kataw-anan makapakatawa o mkatarog gyud sa imong tigpaminaw o tigbasa. ngano man kaha ni? kini tungod kai ang mga tawo nga nga nagtamod kanimo na kondisyon na nga imong mga mensahe dinaklitan gyud ug komedya.Ang sense of humor usa sa pinaka importante nga kina-iya sa tanang malipayon ug malampuson nga mga tawo. Sa mga wlay sense of humor basaha ninyo ang pama-agi unsaon sa pagpalambo sa maong kina-iya.
Joe Love said a good sense of humor helps you to solve problems, improve your relationships, and have a positive outlook on the virtually every aspect of your life. A sense of humor is a very particular developed sense of perspective that allows you to access joy even in adversity. It is about first dealing with the problem and then putting a positive spin on it. When you look at things with a sense of humor perspective, it enables you to have a remarkable capacity to control how you see the things that are going on in your life. You cannot control the external events in your life, but you can control how you look at them.
According to Jose Javier Reyes of the Philippines, laughter is often the way Filipinos cope with natural catastrophes, overcome the burdens of everyday life and cushion the impact of events over which they feel they no longer can control.
Filipino humor is often self-deprecating. It is another weapon in face-saving. By turning a mistake or a transgression into a light moment, the teller relieves the injured party of having to correct him and allows him to own up to his mistake in a way that allows him to also save face. What may appear to an outside observer as another example of Filipino superficiality, making fun of a situation which in fact might be extremely serious, is really an intricate social contract between the two parties that will allow them to continue to interelate in the future. In adjudging Filipino behavior, one must remember that Filipino society is made up of "closed circles of relationships" and each group member must be careful never to burn his bridges with other group members.
Finally, humor in all its guises and uses, binds Filipinos together, transforming an experience into an event that can be shared by all. When Filipinos laugh at something that is unique to them, their laughter becomes an assertion of their unity as a people.
Develop your sense of humor
Misery is not subtle. Pain is not subtle. Joy, humor, and laughter are very often subtle. So you have to pay attention to them to start activating them into your life by listing all the things that makes you happy.
Making a list of all the things that you enjoy and put a smile on your face will not only help develop your sense of humor but it also gives you the opportunity to find out more about the people in your life and what makes them happy and this will enable you to help them develop their sense of humor. When you are able to give other people joy and put a smile on their face, especially when they need it most, you will be giving them the greatest gift you can give.

I still have the weird personality in me but i believe they are more acceptable and understandable this time unlike in the past. Maybe this isn't weird for some people but i consider this weird. My id personality has been teasing me lately. When i look at this actor in the television i admire him so much because he got this very deep eyes, sweet smile, refined in speech and manner. He is Ryan Agoncillo. Although i don't like teleserye but catching him once in a while on tv gives me a leapt of joy. I got a crush on him. This isn't bad but i don't want to deal with this feeling because I seemed to extend my sleeping time from 10 pm to 11 pm. because Ysabella teleserye will be showed at 10:30 pm. Starting tonight I will sleep at exactly 10 p.m. no need to catch him on t.v. He doesn't care for me anyway besides i only admire his physical qualities and perhaps his role in that tv show. This is a challenge to forget about him and to start minding my own business.

Ever tried to wonder what's in a woman’s mind? What is she thinking about? Do you know that women do not always mean what they say. They might say something and mean the exact opposite. But what do women actually want? Read on to discover some of the most shocking secrets women don't want men to know.
Blonds aren’t always dumb- If you thought all of them were dumb then you are strongly mistaken. Hair colour does not affect a person's IQ. They only act dumb to seem cute or get you to spend money on them and if you do that then you are dumb not them.
Women get jealous as hell- They might deny it but the fact is they get extremely jealous even if their man talks to a random female or maybe a friend. She might pretend to act all nice but inside her jealousy volcano is about to erupt.
I am the sexiest of them all- Every woman has this mind frame no matter how much they try to deny it. Almost every woman wants to feel like the one and only beauty queen in the world as if nothing compares and demand royal treatment from all men.
Am I fat- I know you’ve heard this one time and again but let's all admit to it officially! No matter how skinny she is she would never consider herself thin. Almost every woman occasionally asks this annoying question- "Am I looking fat in this honey?”
They always lie about shopping- They might be out grocery shopping but always end up getting something for themselves which they thought was cute. They either try to hide it or lie about its price saying it was on sale.
Don't share secrets with them- If you have than you are already on prime time radio. Almost every woman shares each and every secret with her friends. They tend to share their secrets over a cup of coffee and have a good laugh over it. And yeh when I say secrets it means your private secrets as well ( he he) if you know what I mean.
What shoes are you wearing- If you thought it was a myth than think again. Women do judge a man by his shoes. So better make it a point to wear nice clean shoes the next time you walk out.
They know when you are cheating- Women have inbuilt instincts and emotion system which beeps and alerts when their man is cheating. No matter how big of a player you are you would always be caught no matter what.
An absolute must know for you- This secret is an absolute must know for you no matter what. This is the grand daddy of all which would give you the ultimate power to become a magnet towards which every woman would be attracted.
Jealousy is about real or imagined fears--fear of abandonment, fear of loss of love, fear of being dishonored in the relationship, fear of being shamed in the community, unresolved issues from past relationships, lack issues, poor self esteem, cover or mask for things from the past that you haven't healed yet, vindictive or a desire for revenge that is misguided or misdirected toward someone else (Susie & Collins, n.d.)
Jealousy in a relationship
Another condition when a person becomes a prisoner of jealousy is when he/she has been deceived in a previous relationship and still harbors some feeling of distrust towards the opposite sex. You may recognize this person as a perfect candidate for jealousy when he/she becomes too interested in your activities to the point that he/she constantly checks-up on you, is always suspicious of friends and people you deal with on a regular basis, and sometimes, even goes through your personal stuff (Zagelsky, 2007).
Are you a jealous person? Dealing with the green eyed monster
In order to successfully keep the jealousy monster under control you have to search your feelings to try and find out the underlying cause of your jealousy. When your partner looks at another, do you feel that you’re going to lose him/her? Do you believe that he’s devoting too much time to another instead of you? When you ask yourself these questions, you will be able to determine the intensity of your jealousy and realize that if you’re behaving irrationally then the problem might lie with you.
Talking to your partner about your apprehensions may also help. You may set some rules on behavior at the onset of the relationship and commit to them. This will establish the foundation for trust between the two of you. If at any time, one of you makes a mistake, keep the communication lines open, keep an open mind and discuss the situation. Trust will develop and flourish as the relationship grows.
You also have to learn to control your emotions and confront your fears and suspicions in a rational manner. Remember that jealousy can affect everyone. You have to value the effort you and your partner have both put into your relationship. There may be a chance that your assumptions may be baseless. You wouldn’t want to ruin a good relationship if you let your jealousy control you.

The article* describes a recent set of meta-analyses conducted by Campbell Leaper and Melanie Ayres. These analyses collect all of the available evidence from decades of scientific study and systematically combine the findings into an overall picture of the differences between men and women regarding talkativeness.
The authors found a small but statistically reliable tendency for men to be more talkative than women overall -- especially in certain contexts, such as when they were conversing with their wives or with strangers. Women talked more to their children and to their college classmates.
The type of speech was also explored in the analyses, which looked at verbal behavior in a wide variety of contexts. The researchers discovered that, with strangers, women were generally more talkative when it came to using speech to affirm her connection to the listener, while men's speech focused more on an attempt to influence the listener. With close friends and family, however, there was very little difference between genders in the amount of speech.
"These findings compellingly debunk simplistic stereotypes about gender differences in language use," conclude Leaper and Ayres. "The notion that the female brain is built to systematically out-talk men is hard to square with the finding that gender differences appear and disappear, depending on the interaction context. The results of the meta-analyses bolster arguments for social rather than strong biological influences of gender differences in language use."
*The article, "A Meta-Analytic Review of Gender Variations in Adults' Language Use: Talkativeness, Affliative Speech, and Assertive Speech" is published by Sage in the November issue of Personality and Social Psychology Review.

Kon ang pagbati na ang yama yama-an kuyaw d-i kaayo ang impact sa psychological make up sa usa ka tawo. Mao nga dili jud maayo nga magbinuang binuang o mag duwa duwa lang sa usa ka relasyon. Ug labaw nang dili maayo nga pataka nalang ug dasmag ug usa ka tawo nga wala masinati pag-ayo ang kina-iya. Pero ingun sila nga kon mahigugma man gud ang usa ka tawo ang hugot nga pagsalig ug pagbati nalang ang mamahimong sentro sa usa ka relasyon ug ibaliwala nalang ang uban butang nga importante gyud unta nga mahibaw-an sa usa ka tawo.
Dili hunuon ko experto kabahin sa mga relasyon ug posible gani nga masugamak sab ko sa kahalautan (hinaut dili sab jud intawn) apan ang dakung responsibilidad naa sa atong mga kamot aron kita magmalipayon sa atong kinabuhi.
Dominic was born on 2nd April 1842 at San Giovanni di Riva, near Chieri (Turin). When he made his first Holy Communion, at the age of seven, he wrote down the following as his plan of life: “I will go to confession very often and go to communion as often as my confessor gives me permission. I will celebrate Sundays and feast days as holy days. Jesus and Mary will be my friends. Death rather than sin.”
When he was twelve he was accepted by Don Bosco to go to the Oratory in Turin, and he asked Don Bosco to help him ‘become a saint’. He was a gentle lad, always calm and cheerful, and he put great efforts into his studies and into helping his companions in every way, teaching them their Catechism, tending the sick, sorting out quarrels, etc.
One day he told a boy who had just arrived at the Oratory: “You ought to know that here we find holiness through being very happy! We try to avoid sin, which robs us of God’s grace and our peace of mind, and we carry out our duties as well as we can.”
Dominic kept faithfully to this plan, strengthened by the sacraments and his devotion to Mary, and accepted hardships gladly. God blessed him with special gifts. When Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception on 8th December 1854, Dominic consecrated himself to Mary and began to make even greater progress in holiness. In 1856 he set up the ‘Sodality of Mary Immaculate’ with a group of his friends, to carry out apostolic work together. Mamma Margaret (Don Bosco’s mother), who had come to Turin to help her priest son, said one day: “You have many good boys, but none can match the good heart and soul of Dominic Savio. I see him so often at prayer, staying in church after the others; every day he slips out of the playground to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament. When he is in church he is like an angel living in Paradise.”
Dominic died in Mondonio on 9th March 1857, just under a month before his fifteenth birthday. His remains are in the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians. He was canonized on 12th June 1954.
Pope Pius XI described him as “small in size, but a towering giant in spirit.” He is the patron saint of boy choristers.
he always pray before and after eating
he is not afraid of being alone
he loves to attend holy mass everyday
he emphatize with the poor
he place so much value on the Holy Eucharist
he died at the age of 14
