Remembering Alzheimer's

I remember I saw a documentary one time in TV. It talked about remembering something. It talked about memories. It talked about the memories of the people inside the Home for the Aged. Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most common sickness that people admitted in that institution has. It’s very evident that we have to do something about it. And then I found out about this Alzheimer's Memory Walk.

This event is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research – and it calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's. There will be walks in more than 600 communities. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall. Teaming up with the Alzheimer's Association, we can walk with a purpose – and move us closer to a world without Alzheimer's. Together, we can MOVE a nation and go away from the dread of Alzheimer’s.

Harry and Tom

I've read the book. Now I'm looking forward to see it on the big screen! We'll be seeing the young Tom Riddle in this new and upcoming film. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince will surely be exciting!

Never behind with Cisco

I’m taking my bachelors degree right now in one of the worst computer school (Bwahaha!) here in my place. If it were not because of their financial program probably I’m already finished with my degree. Anyways, even if it’s the most corrupt school in the country, there’s one program that I think is the best offer that they have, the CISCO Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) program which is embedded in our curriculum.

CISCO is the first and leading manufacturer of quality switches and routers. They have their own online academy where you can learn and study how the internet works and how you can create your own network of networks! Learn how to setup your own CISCO router manually or automatically. Create your own Wide Area Network.

I’m currently enrolled in their CCNA program which introduces me to the world of networking. We were taught to setup networks and networks of computers. We delved into cabling and some other cool networking stuff! We also tackled how to configure a CISCO router to connect to another router. Later on, we will be discussing user controls in different computer platforms.

And the best is yet to come.. If you’ll take and pass their online Cisco certification exam, you’ll have another plus on your resume! I myself am planning to take their Cisco certification exam when I’m done taking my 4 semesters in their online academy. Cisco will definitely help you to get successful in your career! You’ll never get behind with Cisco.

Sickly Week

After being absent for a week, finally I’m back. After our visit to Marilog, that afternoon I already felt that bad feeling. The feeling that I’m about to get sick.

Saturday – It was already 8:00 a.m. when I woke up. And when I tried to get up, I was dizzy. I knew right there and then that I am sick. I couldn’t eat well because all the food that I try to eat was tasteless. Grandma and Cheng² usually puts a wet towel on my forehead to lower my body temperature, and it did. Well at least for hours. But when the night comes, it rises up again. And I’ll start to feel cold.

Sunday – When I got up that morning, I immediately went to the Sala because I wanted to sit and watch TV (even if I’m so dizzy). “Hala! Ano yang nasa mukha mo?” my sister asked me. “Ha?, Bakit?” I asked her back and struggled to get to the mirror to have a look at myself. Little red rashes started to appear in my face. I was nervous that time because the idea of having a dengue started to appear in my mind. Considering the fact that my body temperature sometimes goes down and up again after a few hours, I started to get nervous (who wouldn’t?). So later that evening we decided that I will have my blood platelets checked early in the morning the next day.

Monday – We went to the lab to have my platelets checked. It’s only 157k, meaning low. If it get’s below 100k, I’ll start to have nosebleeds, or gum bleeds, Dengue. I wen't to a Doctor in the OPD of SPH to have the result of my blood test read and she told me that I have to be admitted because I have signs of Dengue (see?). But I refused. I went to the OPD section of the Davao Medical Center to have a second opinion. The doctors asked me where the rashes started. "Sa face no?" the doctors asked. I said yes. And the she asked me again, "..tapos sa body na pababa?" I said yes again. And the the doctor told her assistant to check something behind my ears. She touched something behind my ear, there's a lump behind it. "Ah, yes doc meron o.." her assistant told the doctor. "Ah, Rubella and sakit mo" the doctor told me. Without an idea what it is.. i said ok.. lol.

Later on, I searched the net to know what it is. Rubella, in lay-mans term is German Measles. I really got relieved when I've read about it.

It went on like that for the next 2 days. But I still visit the lab to monitor my platelets. Luckily it went up. To cut the story short, I got my energy back, my poor appetite back (lol). I’m ok now and hopefully won’t have any health problems anymore. The only thing that’s been bothering me now is my 3rd molar tooth. It’s growing the other way around and it’s painful when it’s scraping the walls of my mouth. It has to be removed.

UFC - Ultimate Flirting Championship

I’m planning to have my hair cut later this afternoon. Maybe later in the evening after attending my class. It is exam week right now. Anyways I remember when I was still at my elementary, I always cut classes when it’s Friday. Because Friday means it’s scouting. We'll line up at the field of the school and learn to march, tie a not, etc. Every time I attend these scouting sessions, there is only one thing that I don’t want to happen. The haircut inspection. I hate it! And then if you were not able to follow their prescribed haircut? Pahak is the term! Hehe! And that means you won’t be able to wear your Victory Hair.

Since you won’t be able to wear your Victory Hair, you’ll do some cute gestures to spark your crushes’ interest. You’ll clean up your face and wear that cute smile. Or there’s another way. You can use Extreme Style by VO5 or else, you’ll end up jealous and being that wimp on the corner.

And to those who are geniuses of flirting, you can flaunt your flirting techniques and try your flirting skill by playing or joining the Ultimate Flirting Championship (UFC). Try it! Ciao!

City Streaks

Another photo safari was set and held last Saturday. We went uuuuuuuuuup at the rooftop of LandCo Bldg. We placed our tripods and started to frame. It was supposed to be another sunset shoot, this time at the city, but Haring Sun didn't cooperate. So I opted to shoot streaks instead. Pano Style!

Warm City

I wish next time I can shoot again.. another short film or even a full length..

Hey! We went up in Marilog last Friday to visit a school which has a Multigrade classes in it. Actually, the only class they have is a Multigrade class. Meaning, grades 1 to 3 are joined together in one class.

One of the aussies here in our office is going to make a Multigrade Instructional Video.

We left from the office at 9 a.m. I’m still sleepy when we’re travelling so I slept. We visited the office of the district supervisor first before going the actual school to do a courtesy call.

I was surprised to see that there’s only one teacher in that school. The kids were very independent because the kids only require minimum supervision. The kid in grade 3 teaches the younger ones. I even saw students in partners. They teach each other and share what they’ve learned. It’s really amazing when you see instances like these where people help each other. Even parents help the teacher to supervise the class.

It’s also inspiring when you see their learning materials because it’s improvised. They used twigs to be used as a material to teach the kids Math.

Anyway, so much for that. I have to do this best payday loan opp.

Wishing Charter

I was pissed of one time when I was doing one of the blog opportunities. I was in a hurry to finish it because I only have 12 hours to finish it and I have only 2 hrs to make it when I checked my email. The internet was way too slow! I wish I was using Charter internet that time.

Cinemalaya 2008

It's past 5 in the afternoon. I was bored and waiting for my class to start. I was browsing the net that time when my phone rang. I have no idea who owns the number but still, i answered the call.

"Hello? Good afternoon.." I greeted. "Hi, 'to po ba yung number ni Mona?" answered the person on the other end. "Hindi po, kaibigan ko po sya. Pwede po bang malaman kung anong kailangan mo sa kanya?"

"Ah hindi, this is Ruth from Cinemalaya. Gusto ko lang sana syang iinform na pumasok yung film nya sa kids section".
After hearing this, my heart jumped! And she asked.. "Meron ba kayong DVD playable copy nung film nya? Kasi avi yung pinadala nyang DVD eh."

"Ahhmm, ipapadala na lang po namin. Kelan nyo po ba kailangan?"

"Sa sabado na kasi ang screening nung film nya sa CCP so kung pwede mapadala nyo bukas."

"Ok po.. sige po salamat! Bye!"

Yipee! My good friend Mona's film "A Step for My Dream" just got through the Cinemalaya International Film Festival 2008! I was shooting my short film in Ampatuan while she was shooting hers in Paglat. We're both members of the Micromedia Productions! My kudos to her! I'm happy for you Monay! I hope they'll have refinance mortgage service for her.. lol!

Good catch

I went to a friend/Film Director who was shooting his full length film here in Davao (he's also a DavaoeƱo by the way). I was told that they're quarters is at Felis Beach Resort and they'll just go around the nearby communities to look for a place fit for the scene he needs.

While waiting for the text reply to know where they are in the area, I strolled around Felis and I got these images.. care to comment?
