Badminton could help

Do you also see those adipose tissues screaming out when you look at the mirror?  Disgusting, yeah?

Truly, there are many advertised and publicized fat burners but nothing can replace the natural ones and the natural ways.

I tell you that the word for the day is cool and badminton playing is that.  It is like purging those tissues out of the body.  Why?  You sweat a lot when you play and it is even better than doing hip hop abs exercises.

Friend J* promises that when you get hooked with it, you get younger by 5 years.  Just imagine that!  Who would not be interested??

Retail POS System

Example Interleaved 2 of 5. Decoding of first ...

Retail POS System is one that is very useful for stores.  Usually, it comes with receipt printers, bar code scanners, magnetic stripe readers, and cash drawers.

I am going beyond the concept.  Could it be possible someday to have a system that detects shop lifters and crooks?  I mean, it would be a great invention to have.  If a system could spot a person that could scan a person in queue with his loot hidden in his garments, how cool would that be?

Thinking, would that invention be very costly?  But that would be worth the penny, wouldn’t it?

What a Day the Other Day

The first car of Benz (1886), Mercedes Doppel-...

Every morning except Mondays, Papsie brings me to the office, the reason supposedly is for me not to be late.  It’s not been successful.  I still arrive late ‘at times’.

And yes, the other day.  It was the usual morning that suddenly became unusual.  The car stalled in the middle of a main road across an intersection.  Yep! Panic moment.  I was at a loss for words I cannot move.  Then suddenly, I came to my senses while Papsie was mumbling vehemence.  I asked the help of the two traffic enforcers.  They cannot make the car move.  I was not sure if it was because they were advanced in age, or the road ahead was ascending, or the brake had gone off.  Then, lo, a well built policeman, with that ‘PULIS’ embroidered on his shirt, came approaching.

I was staring and feeling hopeful because another one will be lending a hand.  The policeman opened the door on my side and exclaimed, “Bumaba ho kayo! Ang bigat n’yo kaya di matulak! Kita nyo nang matatanda na ang nagtutulak! (Get off! You are heavy that’s why they cannot push! You know yourself they’re old!)”  What the *@#!!  😦

After insulting me, he left! That son of a gun left us without lending a hand.  I stood at the corner watching the two old traffic aides and a burly man trying to push.  Nada.  The car didn’t budge.  I decided to ask the ‘barker’ to help and he agreed.  The car still didn’t budge.  Then I saw my husband waving his hand telling me to approach the car.  I opened the door and he was yelling at and telling me to help push the car!

I didn’t have my choice, and donned in uniform, I helped push the car.  Guess what, the car moved!  Yey!  I am super! I am super woman!

Confused, I boarded the car and told my husband not to bring me to the office anymore in fear that the car will stall again.  He pacified me (with his angry tone) that the car is already moving and I do not have to worry.  He explained what happened which I did not understand a bit.

Oh, what a day.

I could use a cable.

Not to connect to an audio/video source which is obviously a DVD player, a video game console,  or a top box.  I can use a long hdmi cables to strangle a hateful boor. That creature was my subject in one of my shout-outs:

do you know what a low-life is? one who takes advantage of others’ kindness, one who makes money out of nothing, or from a loving offspring, or from weak people, one who looks at women as mere accessories with holes to fill, one who is narcissistic but has no right to be, and one who smells bad and rejoices because others suffer because he smells bad.

But about those cables, buying new ones will give you the best results and that would be best picture or sound quality, especially with high definition

Is Plus Size Maternity Clothing for You?

When a woman gets pregnant, it is a natural transformation that she grows bigger and with bellies puffing up.  But even among pregnant women, there are those who are bigger and require plus size maternity clothing.  Pregnant women also come in different sizes and shapes.

If you are a bigger preggy mom, then you will need plus size maternity dresses.  How do you know if you are a plus size pregnant woman?   Plus size pregnant women have sizes 14 and up.  You are probably a big woman that got pregnant or you had grown bigger when you got pregnant.

It is said that it is hard for big pregnant women to find clothes that are stylish, adorable and cute.  If it is a concern when they were not yet pregnant, it becomes more of a concern when they get pregnant.  But today, finding clothes for plus sizes individuals and even to plus sizes pregnant moms is not a problem anymore.  Online retail stores are already available and they even offer sets of maternity clothes from tops and jeans, to classy cardigans and maternity pants, to colorful maternity blouses and camisoles, or to a simple plus size shirt and maternity shorts for the summer.

Plus size preggy moms need not worry anymore.  They can be as prettier as they were before getting pregnant.

Photohunt: One

It makes me wonder what if pairs become one.  I mean, we are born with some parts of the body in pairs.  What if we loose the other half?  It is so easy to say it would not be easy, that it would be very hard.  But how difficult would it be when we really do not have an idea?

My other half had gotten accustomed to a life where half of his body is not functioning as normal.  It was at first very painful and challenging to him.  I can feel the pain but still, I do not have the idea of what it really felt like.  I do not mean to wish to experience this but one could not really tell how it is.  We know it is difficult but we do not know the extent of this adversity.

What if we only have one of the following?


the eyes

Losing an eye could truly be difficult.  With a poor vision, I could attest that losing the sense of sight is a frightening thought.

What if we loose half of this one?


the brain


Scary thought, isn’t it?  Just watching a neighbor’s schizophrenic brother scares me to death.

To add to these thoughts, what if we can taste all food with only one flavor? What would be the fun in it?


condiments for our different tastes

Photohunt’s them for today is ONE.  This is an indirect presentation.  Bear with me.  🙂

Advice to Smokers

Get a smoker life insurance.   Consider this as goodwill to you even if you do not deserve this.

So,  listen, and listen well.  Your habit is a burden to many.  Your cigarette addiction influences many.  Therefore, you are bad influences, and in severe cases, killers.

I can understand that you smokers have your rights to choose the lives you wanted to live.  You need to enjoy what others are enjoying – doing what you wanted to do freely.  But yours are lives with habits that harm other people, and some of you do not even care.  You just shrug off the ill effects of the smoke you give off.  You just do not care if it emits second hand smoke or third hand smoke.


Don’t Know Why

That is the title of Nora Jones‘ song.  Read a line from my son’s FB wall that goes:

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I’ll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road along

That inspired me to look for the lyrics of this soulful singer.  A line caught my attention…

My heart is drenched in wine
But you’ll be on my mind

I sound emo. Must be the liquor (not the wine) doing the tricks on my mind.

On Christopher and Us Pinoys

I was itching to write something yesterday about this video on Christopher Lao. Read it on Facebook, and I initially did feel irritated at him throwing the blame on others and excluding himself from the blame.

But as I was contemplating on this matter this morning, I felt somehow guilty about looking at the poor fellow as a simpleton. We can really be so easy on judging others and think we are better than them. I bet nobody’s spared of this abominable character. The only difference is some others upon contemplation gets the conviction, while others (or most?) continue on hurling bad words and thinking they think better than a summa cum laude from UP.

The outburst of Christopher Lao was borne of the stress and frustration and shame being in that situation. Being caught in such a shameful situation was a slap on his face and the recourse was to throw blame. I bet that it was a struggle for him trying to explain and in his annoyance, he had had said things not befitting of a learned person. Juan has many weaknesses, too. And so are you.

He was right though saying there could have been fences or blockage and signage that the road is not passable for anybody and also for vehicles. Telling that people could have warned him seems not appropriate. The guy was too full of himself during the time of frustration.

The media coverage of GMA 7 failed to prevent the whole interview scene to appear as fair reporting. It focused on Lao’s tantrums. It can be said that this caused the hullabaloo. It is a sad thing that lots of online bullying were received because of that news. The statement by the news outfit was a tad late but a right move. The official statement of Lao was apologetic but I do think that those ‘intelligent’ (not bobo) will stop or accept that they were judgmental.
