Machang at Mandarin Restaurant

Another day to have time together with family to go out for fun strolling at the mall during these busy days of holiday season. Many spend time to shop and to buy presents for their love ones . This time we went out to window shop and buy some stuff for Paolo's Christmas party.

After a long day of strolling around the mall, we gave ourselve a nice dinner. I have taken picture of my favorite "Machang". Machang is made up of sticky rice, chicken, pork, egg, dried shrimp and other stuff which I don't know how to discribe. Machang is like Spanish Paella but in Chinese version of preparation.

Nursing Course

One of the most in demand courses here in the Philippines nowadays is nursing. There are lots of people I have known who have taken nursing and who dreamed to have the best for living after graduation. Most of them are taking their studies too serious for they know how expensive this course is. It is really my dream to become a nurse before but because of our financial instability my parents cannot afford to send me to school taking up nursing. So then I decided to shift for another course which has leaser in expenses.

I really like to see nurses wearing in white uniforms for they represent themselves neat, clean and pure. I have been to hospital this recent month and I felt a bit happy to see nurses who have taking care of me at their complete uniforms, nursing scrubs and scrubs clothing. I was too weak when hubby confined me to the hospital that time but when I saw nurses who greeted and smiled, the whole thing they did helped paved the pain I suffered.

This second semester some of my friends celebrated their graduation. There are some of them would prefer to take the nursing board exam the soonest possible but some would prefer to have nursing review before taking the board. Nursing course is not just those snappy scrubs clothing and neat uniform but it also requires brain in order to pass.

Philippine Sinter Corporation tour

Philippine Sinter Corporation is the world's largest steel makers. My brother happens to have their field trip inside PSC and I served as the chaperon. It is my great privilege to see by myself how the company operates and they had us the chance to watch videos about the company. From Cagayan de Oro City we travelled for more than an hour by jeepney the school rented.

The Month of Thanksgiving

Eagerness for others to share in something speaks volumes of one's appreciation. Our gifts serve much the same way. When we give money, time or any material possession we are sharing with others what we are thankful for. And so our act of generosity is an offering of thanks in and of itself.

As we, the follower of Christ, we were commanded to give thanks. That command of giving thanks is on the same level as the command breath. Our gift of thanks has the potential to produce thanks also in someone else.

On the one hand, our gift itself is an expression of thanks. One of the clearest ways to express gratitude and admiration is by sharing with others. When we find a new song, a new book, or a new food that we enjoy, and are thus thankful for, we aim to share it with others.

When you are compelled to give thanks do not pass over generosity. If God blesses you with a job, an unexpected gift, or a good return on an investment, give and be generous. Your generosity has the potential to double the thanks given to God.

Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao

The Best Boxer in the World

Manny Pacquiao is definitely one of the best boxers in the whole wide world. After beating and ruining the face of his much bigger and heavier opponent, he really showed that he is the best fighter in todays generation. Receiving his 8th title in the boxing world, what more he has to prove to show the world he is the best. Many boxing fans wish Pacquiao to face Floyd Maywether jr. in the ring but the fight depends on Floyd's decision. Pacquiao is open now for fight to anyone in the ring. Manny is not just the best boxer but he has the humble heart in which the Filipinos are very proud of. A real fighter who gives great honor to all Filipino people around the world. He made people in the Philippines very happy and proud to be a Filipino.

Privacy Online

One of the most popular habits of the people nowadays is online browsing and social media. A huge percentage of people that really want to learn adopt new ways of technology. Even the third world country is starting to be part in this kind of craze. A big percentage of teenagers in Asia are focus more on online gaming. Some of these games are World of Warcraft, Counter Strike, and some are found in Facebook games such as Farmtown, Mafia, Farmville, Café World and many more.

The more cyber world becomes famous to all walks of life. And to some busy people, this is a great advantage to shop online. This is the easy way to buy something without going out to shopping malls but this is also not 100 percent safe. There are some that are using online shopping that were asked their some personal details or may even reveal some bank account information in which some bad people will hack and get money from that person. You privacy online is unpredictable and you will never know if you are still keylogger free or free from any hacking device that can be use to gather your private information.

I had friends that experience being hacked by the used of key logger and because their online game account character was being hacked. I had one friend who has been hacked and this time her facebook account. We can never be sure to have a 100 percent secure online but lucky enough to have some devices that may protect your privacy from keylogger.
