A Blank in My Memory

I have made several attempts to write something for this evening’s post. I tried writing something with a title Being Green and was reminded of MyePinoy because of his dedication to the preservation of Mother Nature and everything related to her. But the effort was futile and I couldn’t write anything about it.

It’s the movie The Lake House which is being aired at HBO while I am writing this. It’s my second time actually but I couldn’t keep myself from viewing it still with interest and fascination.

I tried writing about our visit to best friend Mila’s house at San Mateo. There’s lots to write about but I cannot encourage myself to write about it, either. It’s like there is a huge blank in my memory that would not supply or provide the right words, intro, drama, excitement, et al for a post.

It’s the movie The Lake House, which starred Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullocks (two of my favorites), which keeps on distracting me. I even downloaded the soundtrack It’s Too Late by Carole King from Sonific. Everything about this movie is so fascinating, I think.

Then I said to myself, “Why don’t you just bloghop?” but failed to convince myself. I cannot even have the urge to do so. I am afraid I cannot even leave a sensible comment or a crisp hi or hello.

It’s this movie. And the climax is fast approaching. I still can feel my heart beat fast though I know already what will happen next.

There – I wrote a nonsensical post out of a blank in my memory. Gotta do what I have to do next.

Photohunt: Thirteen

I’M LATE BUT I’M POSTING IT ANYWAY 🙂 🙂 🙂

Here is what I have to contribute for yesterday’s Photohunt theme. It consists of thirteen pictures of baby Drew, the youngest baby in the family.

Drew

Baby Drew is the firstborn of hubby’s nephew Raffy and Sally. I ran out of time to post it yesterday because we went to visit my best friend Mila’s abode yesterday which is in far away San Mateo, Rizal. And yes, it is still a part of the Philippines he he

Healthy is Not Delicious

The other day, two radio hosts were talking about the need to be conscious of what to eat. With all the news about deadly or chronic ailments, or about the different illnesses that we get by not eating right, it is high time, they say, to be really watching what food to eat and how much.

roasted chicken

One of the hosts complained that healthy (food) is not delicious and she began telling her ordeal about a sandwich she’d eaten that tasted like cardboard and another chicken sandwich with lettuce that appeared more like lettuce sandwich with chicken because the chicken meat is very small. They continued until they mentioned that Oprah was heard saying that we can eat all the food we want to eat but with only small amounts. Sounds good to the ear. 🙂 But how much is a small amount?

roasted baby back ribs

Actually, it is a dilemma for me to be following all this dieting and measuring the contents or the ingredients of the food I eat. I dislike eating food without the taste, that is, the ‘right’ taste that the food must have. Although ‘right’ taste vary from one person to another, diet suggestions on measurements do affect the taste that is required of a particular dish. Take for example, adobo, which one main ingredient is soy sauce. Regulating the amount of soy sauce to the requirements would lessen the salty taste minimizing the quality of the viand. It will then transform the viand into something not of the adobo quality.

It is really a challenge (or a struggle) to be controlling what we have to put in our mouths. I am sure many would agree. It is at this point that what we have to really (as in really) instill in our minds is that the accumulated amounts of these unhealthy foods (with their ingredients, and the condiments, too) will one day put us in a situation where we could have wished that we can turn back the time and tune up our food habits.

Notions of the Young

On one occasion,

Kay: Do you think Lozada is a hero?

Me: No. Do you think he is?

Kay: No. Though I must admit that we should not take for granted what he did for the country.

On another occasion,

Me: Do you think it’s enough reason to say that a person is bad or of low morals if he or she did not have a successful marriage?

Kay: Of course not.

Daryl: That’s being judgmental. There are people who stay in a marriage because they do not want to ruin the family though they suffer.

Kay: People sometimes have limited reasoning.

On yet another occasion,

Kay: Natabunan na ang issue kay Lozada (Lozada’s issue has been buried.)

Me: Oo nga, e (Yes, it’s true.) Natabunan na ng issue sa kakulangan ng bigas (Covered by the rice shortage issue).

Again, another occasion,

Kay: Why are people judged as bad if they are agnostic?

Me: (Silent, busy listening to other issues discussed in the dining table. Contemplated on the question a little later but did not respond.)

Last night,

Daryl: You have to give me P300.

Me: What for?

Daryl: For my graduation pics. That old woman photographer was harassing the students. No student should reject a copy. Though you don’t like a shot, you still have to pay for it. Isn’t this an old story in our alma mater, ate?

Kay: Stupid folks. You had graduated already and you are still forced to pay for all the pics.

Daryl: It’s the system. She has connections in the school. I was told she’s a relative of one of the officials in the school.

Kay: Dapat yan inirereklamo na (There must be someone who must complain.)

Me: Nobody complains?

Daryl: Naku, no one. Perhaps because of that idea na malakas siya.

Will You Choose Refurbished?

Pinoys love good buys, budget prices, good deals or low prices. That’s why a lot choose refurbished equipments or devices. Sad to say that deciding on these reconditioned items oftentimes results to disappointment. In a matter of weeks, and sometimes only a number of days, items sold on refurbished point of sale, will be returned to the marketing arm that sold them because they did not satisfy the customer.

It was good to learn that there is Vision POS that would definitely give one’s money’s worth. It is the place to go when one desires a refurbished pos item that has the capability to perform effectively. Here you can see items from Fujitsu, IBM and NCR resold as refurbished POS equipment or devices that are of high quality.IBM surepos pos items, for example, are listed in Vision POS, with the expectation of effectiveness and high quality. Other products include POS terminals, POS scanners, inventory collection devices, POS peripherals, and other new POS technologies.

Do we have something like this in the Philippines where POS products are expected to function accordingly and with compatibility? Or maybe the question will be more like – will we have something like this?
