Nov 10: What is Your Favorite Perfume?


For me my all time favorite scent is Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani. It has a perfect blend of sensuality and masculinity. Above all, it pleasantly smells and manages to stay fresh all day. Because of its lightness, it is sometimes defined as a “summertime fragrance” but I use it year-round.

How about you, what is your favorite perfume?

Lines from “A Secret Affair”


Gee's Endless Endeavors

A Secret Affair

A Secret Affair

Movies with betrayal, infidelity, cheating, unfaithfulness and third party themes are greatly popular and a smash in the Philippine movies these days. From “No Other Woman”, to “The Mistress” and here’s “A Secret Affair”.

I am absolutely having fun with movie’s memorable quotes as we speak. Moreover, here are some samples taken from “A Secret Affair” movie starring Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay and Andi Eigenmann:

“Before I met you, I thought I had a perfect life. And you came into the picture and turned my life completely. you made me realize what true love is. You made me realize what happiness is.”

“Marriage is a sentence. A life sentence. It has to be served.”

“Kaya kabit ang tawag sa kanila kasi daig pa nila ang epoxy kung kumabit. Kaya kerida, kasi makire! Kaya mistress, kasi nakaka-stress!”

“Ano bang tingin mo sa mga lalaki, Bulate? May pa-early bird…

DOGssss..DOGsss….DOGsss…As Stress Relievers…


I came by an article about pet lovers especially dog owners having a less stress life…..It told me as I quote that “A new study has shown something that dog owners have known for a long time; that spending time with their pet can be the best way to relieve stress”. Spending time with their favorite canine friends are much more relaxing than watching TV….Hmmm..no wonder why this family I am living with have  lot of dogs and are very friendly people…..They also told me that no bugler has ever tempted to get inside their house after they decided to have dogs in their house…..Less expensive indeed than hiring a security guard to manage your house if you’re not around….. Of course, I too being a pet lover decided to befriend these canines for my own safety..After all, they too have fangs that can consume my flesh if need to…hahahahah…..Let me say hello to my new found friends —- Kuya Ram2x, Pan2x, Mutya, King2x, Lalang, Tiger and the oldie whitey dog…forgot his name….sorry…..

Young Coconut (Buko – Tagalog; Butong – Visaya)


(August 11, 2012)……Nothing much to do today since it’s weekend….. After a haircut and hair dying, I went back to the house we are staying to see little Arnel climb the coconut tree to get some “butong”…These are young coconut which is fondly called “buko” in tagalog….With my stomach full from a 2 rice brunch I had from Manong’s Eatery just beside the Hairdresser’s pit, I opted to ease-up my taste buds of its longing for butong….Hmmm….What a perfect way to spend my lonely weekend here in Santander…..It’s definitely fun in Santander…much more…..The Philippines…..full of natural beauty and tasty tropical fruits and food…….

…..When I’m homesick, I might feel nostalgic for familiar things like my family, friends, pets, house, neighborhood, loved ones, favorite sports/hobbies. Now that I’m away from my family because of this important field immersion training for my new job, making myself busy is somewhat a remedy to me… But what will happen next after the regular 8 hour office work? I go back to the house we are staying and try consuming the remaining hours of the day playing my favorite computer game —- NBA Live 2012….So fulfilling to win against Lebron and Durant and seeing Kobe win over them in dramatic fashion.. The dunks, 3 point shooting and long range jump shots….But that would also make me a couch potato and someday would lead to obesity and RHD….Leading to the worst dreaded Pulmonary Embolism or even heart attack  due to high amount of low density cholesterol……

It’s been a month now since I first set foot in this rustic Cebu Municipality of Santander… They said  this town is full of mystery to be discovered yet I have never been into  those places they considered very famous tourist spots….So what I did was to do some road run from their poblacion up to the fast craft pier and though I never had a chance to pass by any tourist spots, it will be fulfilling to just smell the breeze of sea air and fragrance of the trees within the scenery I am tackling….I would say, this place is something I look forward to discover…Its solemn aura…just captivating me……I’d surely continue my weekly road run..after all, it is also helpful in a healthy way…..Here are some pictures of me road running…….

The best way of breaking-up


What’s the best way to break up? There is probably no best way. But there are a number of tactics that can help make it easier for both parties (even though both parties may not recognize it at the time). Here are some good tactics to use for a “clean” break:
1. Make It Fast
The longer you take to get to the point (whether it’s hours or days), the less they will take you seriously. And if you make it look like you’re having a hard time going through with the breakup, they will think they can change your feelings or stick around in your life.
2. Be Honest
Don’t sugarcoat the situation. If you’re seeing someone else, tell them you’re seeing someone else. My little sister broke up with a live-in boyfriend because she kissed another guy during a business trip. She told her boyfriend the deal — it made it more concrete. Avoid cliche’s like “I love you, I’m just not in love with you.” Guys don’t understand this stuff. If you’ve lost feelings for them, just say it. They can’t argue with that. And avoid covering up — “I just can’t be in a relationship right now.” Sure you can — if you were still really into him, you’d be in a relationship with him.
Honesty will protect you in the long run, because the truth comes out eventually.
Honesty will protect you in the long run, because the truth comes out eventually.
3. Don’t Feel Sorry for Anyone
People will beg, cry, get angry, or shower you with guilt. Just keep going, try to ward off your guilt. It’s just going to slow you down and prevent you from getting to your objective. And never take someone back, or cancel breaking up because you feel sorry for them. Do you really want to stay with someone you feel sorry for?
4. Set Post-Breakup Rules
Let them know the deal: you won’t be answering their calls or emails. You won’t be accommodating them if they show up at your apartment. Eventually, if they have any personality and independence, they will stop bothering you — but only if you stick to these rules. If you lay these rules out at the time of breakup, then they can’t say: “why are you ignoring my calls?” Don’t tell them what they are allowed to do — they can call you all they want, but if you have stated you won’t be answering their calls then you are well within your rights when you don’t pick up.
5. Stick With It
The more you take them back, the less seriously they’ll take your breakup attempts.
6. Neutral Site
Never do it at your place. You want to be able to leave on your own time. Neutral places are the easiest locations to make a quick getaway. The longer you’ve been together, the more likely it is that you’ll be required to do it in person.
Breaking up takes strength. I have found that people who can’t break up with someone they are no longer into are somewhat weak. Do what you want to do, and don’t get swayed by the situation or the other person.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


People always come into your life for a reason, a season and a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, or to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually. They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are. They are there for a reason,you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die, Sometimes they just walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilleed; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season. And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall, the season eventually ends.

LIFETIME, relationships teach you a lifetime of lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being part of my life…..

Life Still Has A Meaning


If there is a future there is time for mending-
Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.

Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow-
If you’re looking forward to a new tomorrow.

If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping-
When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.

Though the heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling-
If there is time for praying there is time for healing.

So if through your window there is a new day breaking-
Thank God for the promise, though mind and soul be aching,

If with harvest over there is grain enough for gleaning-
There is a new tomorrow and life still has meaning.

THE OBSTACLE IN OUR PATH


In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.

Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many others never understand.
