Finally!

We are currently riding HIGH. Finally, it’s Daryl’s high school graduation. He graduated last March 28, 2008 and he is in the top 5 of the class. He had also received awards such as Best in English and Best in EP.

We are currently feeling HIGH.  He did not fail us.  Check this out to have a peek of all of the graduation photos and where I treated them after the program.

Photohunt is giving me a HIGH feeling , too. Every Saturday is a challenge.

Let Us Not Forget About the News

Local News

Do you know that it always makes me unhappy to hear news about the Philippines? Here’s another – even Yahoo Asia News Philippines has this disadvantageous headlines. Only one of them seemed like good news but it’s good news only to a limited fragment of the country.

Philippines to get own Playboy, but no nudes

MANILA (AFP) – The Philippines will get its own edition of Playboy magazine — only without the nudity that made the US version famous, the editor-in-chief of the local edition said Thursday.

The Philippine edition will be launched on April 2 as a “mature lifestyle magazine”, said veteran journalist Beting Laygo Dolor.While the magazine will offer pictorials of beautiful women, it will not include nudity. “It will be tamer than the US edition but not as tame as the Indonesian edition,” Lagyo Dolor said in a television interview. (more…)

How can this one bit of news rectify the damaging truth in the following list of news in the Philippines this week?

Philippines’ Aquino, democracy icon, has cancer

(And her daughter said it like it was more a celebrated issue than a sad news.)

Philippine militant group may be using drug money

(Is there something new? Everything is possible in the Philippines. Or this can be another one of those accusations just to discredit another?)

Singapore court blocks Marcos funds transfer to Philippines

(Maybe they are worried that these will go to the pockets of only a few named crocodiles.)

Imports Rice Amid Shortage

(Talk about appointees and their cohorts.)

Muslim rebels accuse Manila of delaying peace talks

(Do these rebels really need peace talks?)

Philippine ex-general faces corruption charges

(I wonder how many are like him in the military? Depressing, indeed.)

Philippines Deaths Need Scrutiny

(Extra judicial killings are irresolvable. A sad fact but very true.)

International News

This news made me sad, too, in a different level somehow.

`American Idol’ axes another contestant

NEW YORK – Uneasy lies Chikezie, who won’t wear the crown. The one-name singer — who previously worked security at Los Angeles International Airport — was eliminated from as the show narrowed the competition to nine finalists. (more..)

Why Chikezie? Why not Kristie Lee Cook? I had long wished that she will finally be eliminated. Among the group, she is the least when it comes to talent. Some of those who were previously axed are even better.

Are You Ready?

I am actually not a lover of gambling though I know the basics. Teach me and I can even beat you. I do not have difficulty learning this feat, if you can call it that. I am not an enthusiast but I know how to play mah jong, pusoy, pusoy 2, tong-its, to name a few. It (the addiction) just didn’t get into my system.Thank God. 🙂

Because I believe in my self-assessment when it comes to learning without that much difficulty, I know that online casino games will not be hard to learn at all. I find it amusing that this particular site even offers online gambling tips. To wrap it up, here they are:

  1. Do not simply jump in and play at every casino you like the look of.
  2. Do not take the bait of just simply depositing hiuge amounts of money. Use their demo games and welcome bonus to get the most out of your time.
  3. Learn when to stop, win or loose, and take a breather.
  4. Learn when you’re beat.
  5. Start on low bet games only.
  6. Play only online games that you know very well.

Here is my own version of gambling tips:

  1. Accord only enough money when you play. This means only bring with you money that you can afford to loose.
  2. Pee when you feel like. Eat when you feel like. This will help you assess if you are still willing to go and bet, and think if you can afford to loose much.
  3. Think of your wife, your kids, and the family expenses. That will help you draw the line.
  4. Think about that new sneakers, or watch, or game accessory, or state-of-the-art accouterments, you have been meaning to buy one day.
  5. And last but not the least, think about tomorrow and how you will start a day without a penny in your pocket.

That’s all folks! 😀.

tahoooo.jpg

This is all I can contribute for today’s Photohunt theme. It is a taho container (made of silver-white aluminum) brought along by taho vendors while calling on customers in various pitches of ‘Tahoooo!!!!” For the benefit of those who do not know what a taho is, here is feature from Wikipedia:

Tahô is a Philippine snack food made of fresh soft/silken tofu, arnibal (brown sugar syrup), and sago “pearls” (similar to tapioca pearls).[1] This staple comfort food is a signature sweet and can be found all over the country. The Indonesian and Malaysian equivalent of this dish is Tahu.[2]

Enjoy your taho, I mean your photohunting, folks!
