This artwork was photoshopped courtesty of Pax (I'm still figuring out Photoshop-Trial and error). And what's with the Godfather? well, way back college days, I used to watch the Godfather Trilogy a hundred fold times together with the barkada during our spare time, since everybody love the classic film, we decided the call our barkada- The Godfathers. The rest was history. Let's say I am Don Vito Corleone. lol. Our group had a lot of stories to tell that even a thousand and one nights would not be enough to relinquish all the stupidity we did in school, in the hospital area and every place we've been.

Rest And Sleep

hi guys, what's up? I've been very busy since last week because of my Review. Everything went very fast these days that I got no time checking my blog. Hmf, and this week is going to be a hell. I just got our updated schedule for the review and found out that I have two weeks straight review without review breathers in between, imagine that. Mind you, that would mean that I'll be seating from 8AM to 5PM the whole day and just glue myself there listening to the review experts, Argh. I was even losing my energy everytime I got home from the review. so miserable.

think and think and think

After answering a few questions from this site, I got my so called "type of Personality" which somehow I did agree.

Analytical Thinkers are reserved, quiet persons. They like to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of their strongest motives. They want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. They do not really need much more to be happy because they are modest persons. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. Analytical Thinkers loathe contradictions and illogicalness; with their sharp intellect, they quickly and comprehensively grasp patterns, principles and structures. They are particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for them, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing their considerations with others. Analytical Thinkers like to work alone; their ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all oth…

Eternal Love, Weeee

Foreword: I received this through my email.and I really enjoy reading the whole story and that made me want to post it here.

An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world.
It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century.

The 70-year-old Chinese man who hand-carved over 6,000 stairs up a mountain for his 80-year-old wife has passed away in the cave which has been the couple's home for the last 50 years.

Over 50 years ago, Liu Guojiang a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu Chaoqin..

In a twist worthy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, friends and relatives criticized the relationship because of the age difference and the fact that Xu already had children.

At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.. To avoid the market gossip and the scorn of their communities, the couple decided to elope and lived…

What's in my Name

NPA o Rebelde? haha

John Rezel C. Day: ito ang aking Full Given Name. Alangan naman, sina mama at papa ang nagbigay nyan. Ang John eh bible inspired yan meaning "God's Gift". Ito weird, sabi ni mama and aking second name na Rezel ay galing sa isang kaibigang aktibista na naging NPA din.

Rezel:Hindi ako sanay natinatawag na Rezel. Only a few of people na kilala ko ang tumatawag sa kin neto. Sina Ate Kinah…

Pater Noster

The Our Father or otherwise known as the Lord's Prayer is perhaps the best known prayer that is being recited by millions of Christians around the world. This prayer which is absorbed from the Holy Scripture particularly in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke was taught by Jesus to his disciples as a manner of praying to God.

I was just struck by how the Author constructed his reflections in every line of this prayer. One thing that came into my mind was the thought of having this as a constant reminder in my day to day living. This piece challenges our faith to God as it projects a lesson why an individual should be consistent with his words and actions. What a powerful prayer indeed.sigh.

I got this from

“Our Father"

I cannot say “Our” if religion has no room for others and their needs.

I cannot say “Father”
if I do not demonstrate this relationship in my daily living.

I cannot say “Who art in heaven”
if all my interests and pursui…

Kagang is one special delicacy that I'm always craving for. Every time Papa come here from our province, he would bring many kagang, take note huge kagang, not only that they are very juicy and has an insatiable taste making you ask for more. Kagang is actually a crustacean thriving in shallow fresh waters.

Love Talk race 100

Top 100 quotes to live and remember by. I got this a from a Multiply blogger.

1. "A kiss is a lovely trick, designed by nature, to stop words when speech becomes superfluous."
--Ingrid Bergmen

2. Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
- Captain Corell…

Here I come

Anyways, it's been a long time since I haven't updated my multiply and i just miss it. life has been so busy lately. I just wanna give a shout out to my friends here in multiply old and new the NLE is fast approaching. my review is ongoing and my school requirements for the PRC is still in the process see, so many things to do. I'll be catching up anyways. to my buddies whom i've contacted before, sorry if i wasn't able to reply. i promise to PM you guys.I have so many thoughts in mind though and I'm prety sure to pour it here.

bored and exhausted

When boredom strikes, I sometimes fight it. So here are the two pictures which I edited using Picasa just to entertain myself out of so much exhaustion and sickness. It's just simple with no sense at all. I haven't eaten my lunch yet and it's late afternoon already. I just thought of doing this in madness. Perhaps, this obra could be the result of a decaying mind.

Much like the saying "An Idle's mind is the devil's workshop",
I particularly enjoy playing with the second picture.

Hulagway sa Lumad: Indigenous Art Exhibit

These are some of the works by Anoy Catague displayed at the Museo Dabawenyo last August 2008 dubbed as the "Anoy Catague Art Exhibit 2008".

The paintings depict the rich culture of the indigenous people in Mindanao collectively known as the Lumads. Music plays a vital role in the lumad's aspect of everyday living. Music is an expression of love and devotion to their works may it be in a farmer's field, wooing a woman or even a death of a person.

Anyways, if you cant' figure out what's in these paintings, simply they are just the replica of what we do everyday.


gazing at the window pane

I look upon the stars

with my eyes wide awake

calmness there is

touching the night's coldness

put my hands in stiffness

with my heart enveloped in mist

left a scar so dark and sweet

in silence, in serenity, in solace

peace there is.

Golden Rule

My philosophy in life is solely patterned from the maxim taught by almost all of the influential figures the world has produced notably Jesus Christ, Confucius, The Dalai Lama to name a few. This quote which I state in a positive phrase goes like this, “Do Unto Others What You Want Others Will Do Unto you”. I always bear this strong and moving maxim in my entire life which basically gives me a reason to reckon the purpose of doing things in their proper order.

My life exists as it is today because of the people who nurtured me and mold my mentality that life is a journey towards seeking perfection which can only be achieved by doing what is essentially right and evading what is essentially wrong. These people that I am referring to are my family.

Truly, the values instilled by my parents are maintained in every corner of my life, which later on help me to fulfill my ardent desires and endeavors. The phrase practically taught a lot of hard lessons in life. I learned to control my feeling…

Review at Merge

Now that September started the Ber-months and that the season of Yuletide is starting nearly in our backyards, this is also a good start for something very important in my carrier as a practicing nurse in the future- It's Review Time for the upcoming November 29-39 NLE. It's hella good that I chose Merge Center to be my review center. Even if it looks like it's already late for a review to start, still as a Merge baby, I will go for it because this will give me a good opportunity to pass the board exam. All I need to get my PRC card is to really work hard and have focus, focus and focus.

Dr. Divine, the Vice president of Merge Review Center, gave her orientation about the review, her expectations and what to expect on the review and of course, the Board Exam in her most entertaining way and we surely did enjoy her. Her test on "Kamuning", was a real fun part for us. well, It's just my first day and I am expecting so many things in the review. to those who are …
