what's inside my bag

Yes I was tagged ages ago by my friend Krystel about "What's Inside my bag?" since I have nothing to do and little miss sunshine is having her nap I decided to do it to kill boredom :)

So here's my handy dandy Doctor Bag. Its spacious enough to accomodate all my trash :) I got this from a shop at Glorietta. and btw, I'm still eyeing to buy the hot red one.

This is one big mess! :) I'm a sucker for wipes, sunblock (with high SPF) and perfume (Be delicious) that's why I can't leave the house without them on my bag. I also have my medicines that keeps me alive and kicking. (Calci-bloc and Betaloc). My ipod and PSP are used occasionally when I'm waiting for someone to meet or I'm on the shuttle. My ripcurl magic wallet is my love ;) i got it only for P450 but its original price is 1450 :) talk about super savings!

My "kaartehan kit a.k.a kikay kit". As you can see, I'm not a fan of lipgloss and lip tints cos I prefer using lip balms because I usually have chapped lips due to I don't know :) The glow tint is the one I use rarely because I find it sticky sometimes. My friendly body shop face powder is one hell of a good investment though it only cost I think P800+ its like Loreal's Its blendable :) but you can't buy a refill if you already consume it. how sad. NOT ON THE PICTURE : shu eumura eye lash curler, face shop eye liner in gold, mac foundation and my only nars lipgloss from my tita :) why is it not on my kit? its with my mom. on her kikay kit :) she's fond of using my make-ups, but its ok I'm fond of using her perfumes anyway :)

So I'm done. You've seen what's inside my bag and it's now time to see yours.. :)
I tag GHELL, GLENA, EMI, SHEILA, APRIL, RUSSELL, and everybody :)

as in oh-my-gosh

I was in powerbooks greenbelt this afternoon cos I'm planning to buy Shel Silverstein's "The missing piece meets the Big O" but then agent due to i-dont-know-where-to-find-it and the staffs were busy with the other customers. So I decided to just wonder and look around the magazine area :)

And lo and behold I saw this magazine (I forgot if its Insider or People) but its about the Celebrity moms and their kids. I turned the pages and read it until I saw Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's baby Violet. The Alias star was interviewed (with baby violet and her picture on the right side crossing the street with books on their hands) and said that she and her baby is fond of reading.. and then uhmm be ready--Violets first word is onomatopoeia!--(is a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing, suggesting its source object, such as "click," "clang," "buzz," or animal noises such "arf", "oink", "meow") I was like damn? is this true or just another mom flaunting her bibo daughter? i don't know but I was laughing then :)

So now I wonder what would be Dani's first word?

uhmm maybe..

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (shet naman!) :)

an inconvinient truth

Last night, since I can't put little sunshine to sleep.. I turned the tv on and hit the remote and I came across HBO's An Inconvinient Truth. It's about a man's passion (actually it's former Vice President Al Gore) to somewhat stop global warmings progress. His life was set to focus and give his all out effort to help save the planet, our planet. He has done global warming travel show which offers myths and other related things that helps it progress.

Gore is funny, engaging, open and downright on fire about getting the surprisingly stirring truth about what he calls our “planetary emergency” out to ordinary citizens before it’s too late. With 2005, the worst storm season ever experienced in America just behind us, it seems we have reached a tipping point – and Gore pulls no punches in explaining the dire situation. Interspersed with the bracing facts and future predictions is the story of Gore’s personal journey: from an idealistic college student who first saw a massive environmental crisis looming; to a young Senator facing a harrowing family tragedy that altered his perspective; to the man who almost became President but instead returned to the most impassioned cause of his entire life – believing there is still time to make a difference. With wit, smarts and hope, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH ultimately brings home Gore’s persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue – rather, it is simply one of the biggest moral challenges facing every person in our times. YAAYYY ehem so what the heck is Global warming?

Tell you honestly I don't really know the true meaning of it until I searched from the Dictionary, para mas konti at precise ang explanation! the only thing I know is---its an increase to the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperature predicted to occur because of the increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution. (I memorized the definition from merriam webster so that I wont be ignorante naman if somebody or even my little kid and cousins asked me about it. I hope that film makers would atleast have time to make some movie or documentary about global warming so that people will be familiar with it . And before I forget there are some qoutes at the end credits that really hit me :)

'If you are a child, tell your parents not to destroy your world that you live in..'

'If you are the parent,go with your children, help them build the world they'll live in..'

'If you believe in prayers, pray for people to believe in change.'

P.S. I've researched some definitions of Global warming from climatecrisis.net


Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and temperatures are rising.

The vast majority of scientists agree that global warming is real, it’s already happening and that it is the result of our activities and not a natural occurrence.1 The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.

  • We’re already seeing changes. Glaciers are melting, plants and animals are being forced from their habitat, and the number of severe storms and droughts is increasing.
  • The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years.
  • Malaria has spread to higher altitudes in places like the Colombian Andes, 7,000 feet above sea level.
  • The flow of ice from glaciers in Greenland has more than doubled over the past decade.
  • At least 279 species of plants and animals are already responding to global warming, moving closer to the poles.
  • If the warming continues, we can expect catastrophic consequences.
    Deaths from global warming will double in just 25 years -- to 300,000 people a year.
  • Global sea levels could rise by more than 20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in Greenland and Antarctica, devastating coastal areas worldwide.
  • Heat waves will be more frequent and more intense.
    Droughts and wildfires will occur more often.
    The Arctic Ocean could be ice free in summer by 2050.
  • More than a million species worldwide could be driven to extinction by 2050

P.P.S. So lets all join together to fight global warming.. let's build a wonderful world for our little ones to live in. It's on our hands. Every single human can do something its not important if its big or small but the trueness of the intentions matter the most. :)

(Debunking the Myths That Are Driving You Crazy)
By: Bo Sanchez

This article isn't for teenagers only.

Falling in love happens to the young and the not-so-young. (Did you see 42-year-old Tom Cruise jump up and down Oprah's couch because of Katie?)

It happens to everyone. Fat, thin, tall, short, intelligent, uneducated, holy, not so holy, dark, white, yellow, green... it doesn't really matter.

All of us fall in love.

And we get stuck in myths that drive us absolutely crazy.

My goal is to debunk these myths and convince you not to believe in them.

Let's begin...


Let me qualify.

This is such a tricky myth. Because love ----- as defined by the Bible ------ will conquer all. But love ------ as defined by glazed-eyed lovers ----- will not.

If you believe in this myth, you might do the following:

You overlook major obstacles in your relationship.

Everyone you know is wondering why you chose that creature from outer space as your boyfriend. Your bestfriends are telling you to get rid of him. Your family is telling you to throw him out of a running vehicle. Aling Rosa of the sari-sari store across the street is telling you to lace his drink with poison.

But you won't --------- because you're in love. That's why there are songs entitled, "you and me against the world".

Your best buds comment, 'but he's been jobless for the past three years!" And you say, "He's free-spirited. He feels boxed in when he's in the office. '(in other words, he's undisciplined, lazy bum.)

Your officemates say, 'He flirts with other women constantly!' and you say, 'No, he's just friendly.' (in other words, he's a pervert)

Your cousins say, 'He's taking drugs, He's got needle marks all over his arm. And you say, 'No, he's into cross stitching.'

You overstay in toxic relationships, believing that your love will change him

The wedding doesn't transform anyone...Even if three Popes officiate the wedding. The person you'll march with into the church will be the same person you'll march with out of the church. He doesn't change one bit.

In fact, the marriage makes the hidden more obvious.

If he was selfish before he got married, he will be even more selfish after the wedding. If he was hypercritical before he got married, he'll even be more vile and prolific with his criticisms after wedding. Here's the truth: You need more than feelings of love to make a relationship work. You need mature character, total commitment and a minimum level of compatibility.

Especially compatibility in the area of values and mission in life. I hear people say, 'We're compatible. Our names begin with the same letter J. My name is Julie and his name is Julio. We're both born in July."

Wow. That's so deep, I want to cry.


I'm sure you've had this experience before.

You are in a crowded room. You're surrounded by boring, noisy chatter when, suddenly, this gorgeous guy enters the door. Your eyes meet. Instantly, time stands still. The universe grinds to a halt. Except for this attractive man in front of you, everything in your vision becomes a giant blur. The hubbub of the crowd becomes a soft muffle and, from out of nowhere, you here gentle violin music from the background.

One week later, he's your boyfriend.

A few weeks later, you discover that your boyfriend's a pathological liar, buried in credit card debt, borrows money from all his girlfriends (you're his eight in six months).

Your mind says, 'Dump him'.

Your heart says, 'But it was love at first sight!'

Here are the consequences ...

You become so focused on the magical first moment, you become blind to the dark side of the relationship.

Six out of seven days, you're fighting with your boyfriend. But you can't give him up because you met each other in such a magical moment. Your car keys fell and he picked it up, and then your eyes met, you smelled his deodorant, and you dropped your keys again ......How can you not be meant for each other?

You become a love-at-first- sight junkie that you could miss out on the 'real thing'.

One intelligent woman told me, 'Bo, there's this guy who's courting me. He's okay. He's kind, he's responsible, he has a good job.......'

"I could hear a 'but' coming ," I said.

"But there are no sparks!" she bit her lip.

"No violin music playing in the background huh?"

"None. When I see him, the background music I hear is lululalu-lalulalula lei..."

"Listen. You don't need a magical first moment to meet your potential husband. The important things are mature character, financial responsibility, ability for commitment, compatible mission and values..."

I actually met this girl again on her wedding, and before she marched down the aisle, she whispered to me, "Do you hear the violin music, Bo? It's loud and clear."

It doesn't have to be love at first sight. In fact, marriages with the least adjustments are those between friends who've known each other for years before they realize that they're good marriage material.

What is love at first sight?
Many times, it's lust at first sight. Or infatuation at first sight.

Don't give it too much weight.

Here's the truth: it takes a moment to experience infatuation but true love takes a lifetime.


No, you won't. Here are the consequences for believing this myth :
You panic when the feelings wane, and wonder whether the marriage is over and whether you really loved one another in the first place.

Imagine the night of your honeymoon. Your new bride is sleeping. The cotton curtains are gently swaying in the cool breeze. You gaze at her lovely face. You study her soft cheeks. Her long eyelashes. Her beautiful nose, her parted red lips.

And all of a sudden, she snores.

How do you react? Because it's your honeymoon, you say, 'How cute.'

Six months down the road, the same scene transpires. Your wife is sleeping. And the same cotton curtains are gently swaying in the cool breeze. And you hear her snore.

What do you say? "Ssssssheeeesh, Honey! You sound like a boat!"

What has happened? The feelings have gone. Let me say this: 'That's normal. It happens to everyone. But it doesn't mean your love is gone so don't panic!

You can make a decision to love the snoring boat.

You start blaming your partner for the loss of love
This is nutty. But many people do it: when we don't feel in love, we think it's the fault of the other person. And so we fight him. Again, we fall out of love because we're human beings. It's nobody's fault. The moment you fall out of love , the real work begins.

Let me explain.

This is the most important point I'm going to make. (I got this from Scott Peck in his bestseller book, The Road Less traveled)

"Falling in love isn't love ."

Here's why. When you fall in love...

a. No decision is required. Falling in love just happens.

b. No effort is required. Falling in love is like.... Well, falling.

c. No hard work is required. Falling in love is being bitten by the love bug.

On the other hand, true love requires all three : Decision, effort and lots of hard work. In the Bible, love is a command. You make it happen. Sure true love can only happen after you've fallen out of love.

When you begin choosing to love, even if you don't feel like doing it ---- that's true love. And that's the foundation of a lasting marriage.


Again because falling in love satisfied you completely ----- you want the same satisfaction to last. No it won't. Consequence? You might fail to recognize a good relationship because your partner isn't fulfilling the needs you should be fulfilling yourself.

Here's the truth: the right partner will fulfill many of your needs but not all of them .

There are just some things your husband can't give you: you're self-worth. Your spirituality. Your inner happiness. These are things you have to work on your own. I've met lots of people who think they're dissatisfied with their marriage. In reality, they're dissatisfied with themselves. I've met lots of people who think they're bored with their marriages. And they complain to the high heavens how boring their husband or wife is ---- when in truth, they're really bored with life.

Meet your own needs. Find your happiness in God. Find your niche, your calling, your destiny. And then share your joy with your spouse.


If you believe in this myth, you panic when you get attracted to someone else, questioning the authenticity of your love for your spouse.

One man told me, 'Bo, I love my wife. Or I thought I did. But then I met this woman at work. She has nice make-up. She smells nice. She wears a pencil-cut skirt. When I go home, my wife is wearing a drab rag. Her hair is undone. She smells of vinegar. Gosh I am attracted to this girl at work."

Being attracted to someone is normal ----- even if you have a happy marriage. But being attracted doesn't mean falling into adultery.

Every time you think of the other woman, discipline your heart and say, 'Home, boy, Home!' and escort your heart back to your wife. Because if you feed your attraction with fantasies and constantly think about the other woman, it grows.

tarot card + a burfday

You are The Sun

Happiness, Content, Joy.

The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.

Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.

The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.

What Tarot Card are You?

brian gorrell-dj montano issue

I've been hearing about this thing to my friends for the last 2 weeks. They've been a frequent visitor of this blog. without me knowing what it is.. I chcked it myself and then tatah! I got surprised.. really! Is this true? or maybe not or can be.. there are only few things that I know about this story..(I've searched the web and found out some articles and write-ups about him) I'll be reading every single detail written on his blog later. (when baby Dani's sleeping :) )

Brian Gorrell - Born in Canada but raised in Australia. He was on vacay when he met his then ex-boyfriend DJ Montano. A writer of a local newspaper here in the Philippines and is said to be a part of the high-class society together with other socialites namely the Gucci Gang (according to Brian) namely Celine Lopez, Tim Yap, Chut Cuerva, Jackie Antonio, Tina Tinio and the others i dont know and I dont realy care bwahaha. no not funny. erase erase.

Brian reveals it all to the world that this DJ Montano owed him whoaping $70,000 for setting up a restaurant business at Greenbelt and eventually found out that there were no restaurant being built or set up. Now Brian's quest is to get back the money from Dj and have they're own lives separated. No more court issues nor pusuing a case.

And one more still I'm not done reading the 'revelations' of Brian regarding the life and the dirty business the 'socialites' (Gucci gang I think which DJ Montano belongs to) are in to. But yet I've heard rumors that its all about the vices? coccaines? drugs? I still don't know yet. More for me to find out :)

I can't say my opinions yet cos I haven't heard the other side of the story but I think the Government should atleast try to peek oh no look better yet do something at the story behind the high class people and those with much 'power' using prohibited drugs. Let all of the officials be hesitant to take all bribes these High class people and be under their much much money POWER.

more.. sometime not now.. bare with me pleae :)
