Random Things about Sunny and what R U thankful...

10 Random things about Sunny

Got this tag from Rose and Arnie

1. I am not picky when it comes to chow-chow. Sushi, ampalaya (bitter gourd), visceral (e.g. isaw -intestine, balonbalonan -gizzard and likes) and other street foods are my favorites. But my best-loved is no other than BREAD – my ever favorite treat and perfect combi for my pot of coffee. Carrot, Danish, Wheat and Walnut and of course, Pandesal are on my top list for my Breadaholics.

2. I love jazz and new wave music and I sing aloud during shower especially the songs of Groban and R. Kelly (I opt for high notes tune).

I love putting baby powder on my body after shower – the baby smell, hmmmm. But I can also stand the greasy feeling of sweat and stinking aroma of three days no bath and freshen up.

4. I love playing with kiddoes. They teach me a lot of lessons in life – patience, appreciation in life, keeping your promises, and on how to live in a worry-free life.

5. I am not into sports. I just love biking, early morning in particular. But I’d love to learn boxing, and mixed martial arts.

6. I used to dream of becoming a doctor and now I am a frustrated health worker (by title). I also dreamed of being a firefighter, a bookstore cashier, a volunteer at Mozambique, and an activist. But I never dreamed of wearing corporate clean-cut attire in finely comb hair with eye glasses and leather attaché case.

7. I am a nature lover that’s why I love landscape photography

8. I am more of a feeler than a thinker

I am not into tech bytes and stuffs. Notebooks and pencils are the best gadget for me

10. At the moment, I feel so dumb, dumb, dumb

Call for Flat Belly Diet bloggers

I’ve got lot friends who are obese, those who have bursting 3-layered tummy underneath their shirts. I’ve seen and observed them very well how awful they feel, how bad they look at themselves. It’s a hard struggle for them for everyday of their lives especially when it comes to social and school stigma. There’s always a prejudice by speculation, name calling and such. Going out to canteen is big problem with mockery from the other people. Walking on the corridor seemed like walking on the catwalk of shame for them and they always go behind the crowd when it comes to picture taking. Though there are people who look beyond the looks, it’s very undeniable that obesity is big problem – physically for the risks of other diseases and psychologically with the worse upshot of suicide. But there are ways to eliminate these negative aspects of big tummy problem; first is by the awareness of the inner beauty by identifying and celebrating the inner strength of a person, and secondly, the best solution, is to eliminate the problem – the belly problem. Here comes the Flat Belly Diet: The diet everyone is talking about! Prevention magazine is looking for a select group of women who would like to try the Flat Belly Diet for free.

Eligible participants will receive:
• A free copy of the Flat Belly Diet book
• A free 1-year membership to the Flat Belly Diet website
• Exclusive membership to our Success Story Club
• The chance to blog about Flat Belly Diet on our website
• First look at exclusive Flat Belly Diet videos

The Flat Belly Diet is the newest and the trendiest way to get rid of the belly fats of shame. It’s based from the research that there are healthy fats, Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs (MOO-fahs), that give the opposite effect of unhealthy saturated and trans fats. MUFAs is a disease-fighting fat that can be found on almonds, olive oil and even in dark chocolate. And according to exciting new research, MUFAs can actually help you lose weight, specifically around your middle!

STEEL WOOL and GROSS chunks @ GRILLA BAR and Restuarant

Stomach-turning experience at Grilla Bar and Restaurant, Greenhills Promenade



I had a dinner with my sister, bro-in-law, and my 5-year old niece at Grilla Bar and Restaurant, Greenhills Promenade Branch last Wednesday night. We made an order of seafood meal, baby back ribs, and a follow up order of kare-kare. In fairness to the resto, we were amused savoring their tasty food. But at the middle of our meal, my bro-in-law found a piece of “STEEL WOOL” on his mouth after munching a mouthful serving of kare-kare. My sister got really upset because what if my niece got swallowed it. We immediately called the attention of the manager. Both sides were calm about the issue and Ms, Leano, the manager said, “gusto niyo ma’mam palitan na lang?” Consensus was made by her suggestion. But it took quite a long time before the food was served so my sister had decided to just cut it to our orders but Ms. Leano didn’t agree and suggested to just take out the food instead. Again, we agreed and waited for the food. When we got home, we found out “BIG CHUNKS OF FATS” (or whatsoever gross thing you may call it) on the meal. We were stupefied looking at it because it’s really gross and completely different in contrast to the first serving we had. It has no more steel wool but the GROSS CHUNKS of “eww” instead. Without delay, I searched the net for their number and my sister dialed it up and talked to the manager once again, but this time my sister was logically furious.

The “STEEL WOOL” issue was already a BIG mistake for them. On some resto, they would replace it with their most expensive meal and on some would double their serving. We were already annoyed and disgusted about the “STEEL WOOL” but then they made another foolish act by treating us like brainless customers. I really don’t know what’s with Grilla, they’re supposed to augment their first fault but then it turned out into another disgusting mistake, deliberate mistake – I presumed.

Grilla Bar and Restaurant, Greenhills Promenade Branch is now BLACKLISTED.

Who’s in Control?

Who’s in Control?

I found this interesting quotation from Nicky Silver, The food Chain

“Men Rule the world”

(the world is made for men, agree? Hmmm, I guess so)

“Penises rule the men”

(OMG, the vulnerability point of the surging testosterone)

“Who rules the penises?”

(This is the real question amigo, who really rules our little men)

“We do, darling”

(the simplest answer, lol)

As girls become women and boys become men, all of us learn that sex is a power that we can posses – or be possessed by. Here are some statements that are somehow mind-boggling for being so simple and direct.

Men can control women sexually because, if one doesn’t say “yes”, they’ll find one who will.
Women can control men sexually because it’s they who decide if it’s “yes” or “no”

Men can control women sexually because they’re physiologically able to rape.
Women can control men sexually because, if they choose to, they call anything ‘rape”

Men can control women sexually because they get sex from women by giving them goodies.
Women can control men sexually because they get goodies from men in exchange for sex.

But here’s my point fella, as the earth revolves around the mightiest sun, things on terrestrial also revolve constantly and sometimes the revolution is upside down when it comes to the mightiest sex.

Here are the simple tidbits…

Women are now capable to rape men

, have you heard of the “MSG” style? This is really alarming, that’s why I don’t easily accept free drinks. For my virginity sake fella, I’ve been taking care of this, lol

women outnumbered men

, take another less from those studs hiding inside the creepy closet full of “mama mia” skeletons, it’s the gals now who give goodies in exchange for a round of hotta hotta experience, agree?
And in some cases, it’s really the

men who decide

the ‘yes” and “no”. Another long lol…

Contemplating this list, we may conclude that – when it comes to sexual power –women and men have only imperfect control.

Chain message

Why is it some (many, I guess) people are still buying this hoax.


gimme a break!

I got pissed-off rather than the air-lifting aura of an SMS sent by my friend last night. Here’s the message, see how would you react to this:

Mama Mary called me 2day & asked who needs 2 b blessed. I gave Her ur #.
(The exact SMS message)

What’s wrong with this? Nothing. (Oh gee, not the “text style” - as a second language) but with the next sentence. Here it is:

F u really love her send dis to 10 people and in 5 min something gud will happen. Sacrifice.

OMG, this just ruined the beautiful start of the message. I have received different chain emails and text messages; the pyramid schemes, the “you’ll get rich” pass-it-on message, the free gadget chains and such nonsense messages. But this kind of chain message really annoys me the most. I am not a religious person but this kind of manipulative chain message really exploits superstition and some religious or I may say spiritual aspects of life– blasphemy, I guess. To tell you people, there are worse chain message than this. Once, I received an SMS message that says bad luck would fall upon me if I wouldn’t pass that massage in five minutes to 20 persons. The hell, it’s so stupid, pointless, and only the dumb buys it. PERIOD! Ahahaha! Nothing in our life really depends on forwarding chain mails or text messages. It’s up to you to buy it or not, I just said my point. Bye! Bye! lol.

Common sense isn't so common...

What goes around comes around

I'll be out for tomorrow so I already made my post now,hehehe!
Just an inspiring story i got from my email...Hope you like it too..

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.

There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. 'I want to repay you,' said the nobleman. 'You saved my son's life.'

'No, I can't accept payment for what I did,' the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.

'Is that your son?' the nobleman asked.

'Yes,' the farmer replied proudly.

'I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.' And that he did.

Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.

What saved his life this time? Penicillin.

The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son's name?

Sir Winston Churchill.

Eary signs that Christmas is coming

Happy Sunday people! I woke up quite early today though I fell asleep close to the crack of dawn already. I went to the mall and had my early strolling. Actually I was asked to buy some goodies for my niece because today is Sunday, and Sunday is a treat day. I went to Goldilocks and bought egg pie, chocolate mouse and raisin choc chips. Afterwards, I took a peak at Booksale but I got overwhelmed again – as usual, and spent quite a long time browsing some rotten books. As a Sunday treat for myself, I bought a book by Edward Aubyn in a rock-bottom price. A made a walk along the mall’s ground floor and I noticed the ornaments in green, blue, and red hanging on the walls and the lonely-merry Christmas songs airing around. OMG! Christmas is coming…then this thought comes into my mind: My take “5” early signs that Christmas is coming

Here’s my take “5”
1. The radios are now playing “White Christmas”, Pasko Na Sinta ko” and likes that really make a sudden gush of Christmas spirit and whether you deny it or not, Christmas song really makes a chill at your spine because it brings back the memories hushing up at the back of your mind. Christmas songs are very catching; at the bus, train, cabs, and everywhere, the sounds humming in the air are kinda’ pinching a part of your hear that makes you feel ouch or wow, yeah. Another tangible sign of Christmas that is very undeniable are the Christmas ornaments. I remember when I was young, when the first “ber” month, which is September, turns in the calendar, she would start preparing and installing the Christmas decors - the Christmas tree, the lanterns in different colors and sizes, the garlands with cherries and pines, the scented candles, the glittering Christmas lights, the figurines of Santa, angels, and snowman, and of course, the Belen. I was always the one who assembled our 8foot high Christmas tree while my mum was the one who sprinkled the colorful ornaments on it.

2. Let’s talk about the Season, whether there is a global warming or not, we, the Filipinos usually associate the start of Christmas during the “ber” months and when the wind blow starts to become breezy or I may say, vice versa. The early morning is starting to become nippy, so no need for air conditioners and sometimes you even need to turn off the electric fan.

3. Another apparent sign that Christmas is coming when you start to worry about budgeting and listing the gifts for your fella. Born as the youngest in the family, budgeting or listing gifts never bugged me at all, the only thing I knew when I was a kid is receiving gifts, hehehe. But now I am starting to get worry about it. My gifts for my family are not a problem at all because I could share with my sister. But the gifts for my special “some ones”, lol is the big problem for a bum like me.

4. Emotions. My number four early sign of Christmas is the mixed-emotions. There are people who hate Christmas. These people might have no good memories with the season or I may say they had“not-so-good” memories during this very special season that they always associate Christmas with the “not-so-good” past. But chewing over this emotion, it only proves that we bracket Christmas together with merry celebrations amongst our family, friends and loved ones and the downhearted feelings is only a product of this unfulfilled or messed up outlook. So whether we are sad, gloomy, or bitter about the season, it only proves that we always wanted to be happy with this very special season. There’s always tomorrow and it’s not too late to actualize your wonderful Christmas. Besides Christmas is when you feel the true spirit that it’s offering to us. So if you’re feeling “emo” and you keep on denying about the season, it only swells your stimulation about the season.

5. And my number five early sign of Christmas is when you realized the above lists and you start to feel the glow of sharing and the happiness about life in gratitude to the life and love given by the main Celebrant of the Season.
