Excited!

Ito pala yung pakiramdam ng excited kang maging asawa. Hindi ka makatulog nang mahimbing. Hindi makakain ng marami. Pakiramdam ko ayos lang ako lagi. Darating na kasi s’ya. Yung lalaking pangarap ko lang dati. Yung hindi ko kakilala pero magpopropose ng kasal sa’kin. May pagkamasukista ata ako. Hindi ko na tinitiyak kung masasaktan ako o mapapahamak basta’t nakakabuhay ng dugo ang pakikipagsapalaran ko. Ayoko kasi ng lalaking kilala ko na pati dumi sa kuko. Gusto ko yung kailangan ko pang kilalanin pati pilik-mata. Marami sigurong tatawa sa makakabasa ng blog na’to. Pero pakakasalan ko ang taong nakilala ko sa internet. Labintatlong buwan kong hinintay na makasama ko s’ya. Nakakainip yun. Nakilala ko lang sya sa mga kwento n’ya, sa gestures at build-up ng mga pamilya at kabigan. Pero ganun ko na s’ya kamahal. Kulang na nga lang pumunta ako sa Mars makakuha lang nag kakaibang powers para maparating ko sa kanyang baliw na baliw ako sa kanya. Idagdag pa natin sa pagtatawanan n’yo na hindi s’ya gwapo, torpe s’ya at hindi matangkad. Hindi n’ya ako ginayuma at promise hindi ko inalam ang savings nya. Baliw talaga ako sa adventure, pati love life ko nadadamay. Well if God permits, pati buhay ko magbabago nang dahil sa pagka-adventurous ko…

Bagong Taon, Bagong -Love Life?

September 7, 2012 -ang petsa kung saan una kong inaccept sa facebook si boyfie. Oo, [yees!] may bago na’kong boyfriend. Goodbye past na’ko at masaya sa pagpasok ng 2013. Although may kasiguruhan ako sa lalaking tinatawag kong akin ngayon ay hindi pa rin lubos ang kaligayahan ko. Bukod kasi sa nasa abroad s’ya ay hindi pa kami nagkikita. Hindi ko rin alam kung bakit agad ko s’yang sinagot e hindi naman ako nagmamadali. Hindi ko rin sya ganun kamahal pero ganun ako kasiguradong “s’ya na!”. Gusto ko s’ya, ang kalagayan n’ya sa buhay, ang pagkato n’ya, ang prinsipyo, ang pagtrato nya sa’kin at pagbubuhos ng panahon. Isang package yon na hindi ko nakuha mula sa mga nakaraan kong relasyon. Isang package na hindi ko inexpect na makukuha ko mula sa isang friend of a common friend. Maraming surprises ang 2012; at masasabi kong isa sya sa pinakamagandang surpresa. 

I just wished 2013 would be kinder and that I wouldn’t have to regret my “new year decision” (hehehe, wala kasi akong new year resolutions e!).

Movies Exaggerate!

Exaggeration makes scenes look real, making it the key to obtaining views. Aminin mo man sa hindi, isa o higit pang eksena sa pelikulang pinanood mo ay nag-comment ka ng “exagge?!”, “oa!” o kaya naman ay “anu ba yun?, yun lang?!”. May mga eksena talaga sa mga palabas sa t.v. o sa sinehan na arte lang [well, arte lang naman talaga], I mean yung parang hindi naman talaga pwedeng mangyari sa totoong buhay pero sa pelikula pwede. Kagaya na lang ng pagkahulog sa apat na palapag ng bida tapos biglang tatakbo at makikipagkarate, o kaya naman at masasabugan ang kontra-bida tapos pagkaraan ng ilang minuto ay lalabas sa isang eksena na parang hindi naman nanggaling sa nasunog na gusali. Madalas ko ring mapansin ang mga road accidents kagaya ng pagkabalahaw ng isang sasakyan sa high way na maluwag naman ang traffic pero sa oras ng aksidente ay magkakarambola ang napakaraming sasakyan dahil sa nabalahaw na sasakyan ng bida. May eksena ring nahuli na ang kriminal tapos hindi poposasan ng mabait na bida, tapos biglang manlalaban ang kriminal at maghahabulan hanggang sa makawala nanaman ang kriminal. Mga eksenang pang-action talaga! 

 

Sa ilang lokal na drama naman, napakahirap paniwalaan na kayang i-orchestrate ng bida ang pinagtagn-tagning kasinungalingan. Halimbawa, magpapanggap ang isang desperadang kababatang babae ng bidang lalaki na s’ya raw ay buntis, hindi papanagutan  ni lalake dahil mahal n’ya si bidang babae, lalayo sila, hindi makikita si kababata tapos aalis ito at manganganak sa ibang bansa [pero nasa Pinas lang naman talaga], magkakaroon ng baby at ipakikilala kay kababata hanggang sa tanggapin ni bidang lalaki na anak n’ya ang bata, lalayo si bidang babae para mabuo ang kunwaring pamilya ni bidang lalaki. Tatahimik, biglang may DNA test si bidang lalaki at ang bata, tapos magkakagulo ang kunwaring pamilya dahil sa mabubunyag na katotohanan, at nagkaroon ng ibang pamily si bidang babae pero mahal pa rin daw nya si bidang lalaki, hanggang sa magsama silang dalawa at duon magsisimula ang aksyon. Mag-aalyansa ang asawa ni bidang babae at pamilya ni bidang lalaki hanggang sa mayroon nang ubusan ng lahi, may sasabog na sasakyan, sampalan, sabunutan, barilan, hanggang sa maospital ang dalawang bida at mauwi sa libingan si kababatang babae at asawa ng bidang babae at presto, tapos ang storya [na inabot ng halos isang taon sa ere >.<] Drama nga naman! Sa totoong buhay, tatahimik na ang isang tao kung masaya na s’ya sa pamilyang meron sya, pagdidisplay naman kasi ng kalandian kung babalikan mo pa ang ex mo na may asawa na hindi ba? Pero, dahil drama, kailangang idisplay talaga ang kalandian, ang tawag nga nila dun at “tunay na pag-ibig” [at gaya nga mga artista, ayun, dumadami ang kaliwete, kapapanood ng drama].

 

Sa horror movies naman, madalas nagiging comedy kung makita mo ang bida na maruming marumi yung damit tapos sa susunod na eksena parang nakapagpalit na ng damit tapos matatakot ulit, mandudumi ulit, tapos magugulat na lang s’ya bigla tapos mahuhulog, tapos matutulog dahil sa impact ng pagkakabagsak at magigising na nakatali na, eksenang parang may fowl play, hindi man lang naramdaman na dinala s’ya kung saan at itinali. At madalas mas nakakatakot pa yung reaksyon ng bida kesa sa muka ng kinatatakutang kontra bida. Take note, madalas sa horror films, title role ang kontra bida o kaya naman ay yung bagay na nakakatakot sa pelikula.     >.<

 

Sa pelikulang enchanted naman o fictional, parang naitatak na si Vic Sotto sa role na yan. Ewan ko ba, pag sinabing fiction movie, may mga engkanto at fairy, naiisip ko si Bossing Vic eh… 

 

Kayo?! Do you find TV and movies weird nowadays? Pero, aminin! Maganda naman di ba? Kahit “OA!”

 

 

 

 

How a Guy blows out.

Here’s this “ym” conversation of a guy I met on a match online dating last 2010. I thought he already deleted me from his list of “ym” friends [because I did!], but he sends me random messages some times last July and I finally got the idea of posting my very last conversation [with a sweet revenge] here in my wordpress! Just to clarify, I don’t have bitter feelings about him, we haven’t even met and he just seems like a good example.

I know it’s sarcastic of me posting this sort of what you think is non-sense, but I wasn’t able to met this man in person. I can tell he is a total bull shit! Know why? Because he sets his status as single on the match online dating page, trying to screw up with damn people [well I admit, on my 23rd I was quite stupid!]. He is really a good catch at first. He has a great job [I will not mention what, but he earns a lot, I got this idea from his facebook photos]. He is intelligent, it’s showed in his facebook account too. He has a reputable family, it shows from his connections. He is techie, he can be found on the internet. Luckily I did not even agreed having a date with him or even a ride to his car. Before I accepted him as facebook friend he forgot to set private his personal photos such as his kids and wife [well, I don’t think he is stupid at that, I just thank God he forgets]. He is the 80% of the guy I dreamed about when I was 18, and I didn’t get to know the truth I might have been a victim.

I did not have the idea of posting such conversations as this until I almost fall into a married man (another man) last 2011 [Oh well, maybe I fell, I just got an early warning from other friends of ours (yes, me and his!)]. I wrote this to make other girls aware about men having no ass to stand up as a family man but has more than two balls making “single mothers” population rise!

Just to ensure peace, I am not talking about manhood in total. I just hit some!😀

Pakisagot.

I’ve been thinking about this for months, since I sometimes get tired of typing and I now develop a habit of speaking in front of a camera and taking cellphone videos,I wonder if I try video blog as a new set of blogging style, can I hear from you?

🙂 Remember: “smile like you we’re never hurt…”

What others’ have and what I really missed…

           Matagal-tagal na rin simula nung huli akong nagsulat para dito. It’s been a quite long time at walang masyadong magandang nangyari sa buhay ko. Bukod sa bente singko na ang edad ko at nanganganib na tumandang dalaga wala namang masamang nangyari sa mga panahong lumipas na hindi ako nagbalita sa inyo mga kapatid😀. Parang okay naman ako! Walang masakit sa katawan ko, maliban sa balikat kong parang simula gabi hanggang gabi ulit e nangangalo. Wala namang nagbago sa katawan ko maliban sa 28.5′ na ang bewang ko habang 38′ na ang hips ko. Maputi pa rin naman ako, sa travel agency pa rin nagtatrabaho at medyo kulot na ang buhok na pinarelax ko nung Abril. Nastress din siguro nung nagbayad ako sa doktor ko nung nakaraang Hulyo bago sumapit ang kaarawan ko, nagdusa lang naman ako sa makating allergy na akala ko buni, yun pala allergy. Sa ngayon maliban sa medyo mataas ang uric acid ko ay wala naman akong ibang problema. Oo wala na, kasi lagi namang kakambal ko ang pagtatalo namin ng nanay sa tuwing uuwi ako, hindi na bago ‘yon!

           Kahapon, pumunta kami sa bahay ng isang kaibigan. Nagkainuman, kainan, mahabang kwentuhan na inabot ng alas siete ‘y medya. Pagkatapos magsimba ay dumerecho kami sa Manila para magliwaliw, makikikain lang sana kami kaso hindi na kami nakaalis kasi madaming kwento ang kumare ng kaibigan ko. Masaya naman ang buong araw pero pag-uwi namin ay naalala ko nanaman ang mga napag-usapan. Binalikan ko ang buong araw ng tawanan. Nalungkot ako! Hindi naman dahil sa kanila, napatunayan ko lang kasi na marami pa akong hindi nararanasan sa buhay. Wala pa akong “true love”, walang anak, hindi pa’ko nararanas ikasal, wala pa akong ipon sa bangko, walang sariling bahay kahit kubo at hindi pa kami nagkakasundo ng nanay ko! Mga bagay na masayang pinagdaanan at malungkot na hinarap ng lahat ng kainuman ko kahapon. Ako lang kasi ang dalaga. Ang isang kaibigan ko wala pang anak, pero may asawa at nag-iipon na para mabili ang lupang pangarap nila. Ako man ang pinakabata, bench mark ko naman na bata silang nakipagrelasyon at lahat sila, sa edad na bente singko ay may karelasyon na o di kaya ay may asawa na. Samantalang ako, walang maipagmalaki kundi ang mga papuri nila sa twing tatanungin kung bakit wala pa akong boyfriend -sa ganda kong ito!😦 Hay! Sana ganon kadali. Yung makahanap ka pa nga lang ng lalaking tapat mahirap na, e yung makahanap pa kaya ng boy friend na ikaw lang ang mamahalin? Di ba mas mahirap yon? Tapos makakarining ka pa ng kwento na ang asawa nya nambabae tapos sinuntok nya sa nguso yung babae. Dalawa lang sa parte kapag ako ang nag-boyfriend o nag-asawa -it’s either ako ang number two o ako ang legal na asawa pero niloloko. Ayokong maging number two, ilegal na, imoral pa! Pero, ayoko ring maging number one na mahal daw pero may karibal! Nakakatakot pumasok ulit sa isang relasyon, pero mas nakakatakot kung nasa isang relasyon ka pero may kahati ka sa kanya. Loyal ako, at masama akong niloloko! Kapalit ng luha ko ay kalayaan ko, patas ang mundo at ayokong sa akin ko mapatunayan na hindi. Alam kong napakaraming mga bagay na meron ang iba na wala ako, pero yung “basics” ng tao, parang wala rin ako.

           Ang akala ko dati, sapat nang may ina, ama, pamilya, pagkain, damit at edukasyon para mabuhay nang masaya. Meron ako ng lahat ng mga yon. Pero nung tumanda na ako, nagkaroon ng kaibigan at nakakilala ng iba’t ibang tao, naranasan kong masaktan, malungkot at sumaya sa iba’t ibang dahilan. Masyadong maliit ang bulsa ko para bumili ng kaligayahan, masyado akong madamot para magbigay ng kasiyahan sa iba -hindi ko alam kung madamot nga ba ako o sinisiguro ko lang na hindi na ako masasaktan pa. Ang tulad ko ay parang poste, nakatindig ng tuwid, hindi gumagalaw, umula’t umaraw, walang pakiramdam!

For the Blogs

Ako na ata ang isa sa pinakamababaw na taong nabuhay sa henerasyon ko. Nag-eenjoy ako sa panonood ng commercials sa tv. Mas teary eyed pa nga ako sa tawa kapag nanunuod ng commercial kesa ng bubble gang e. Mas benta pa sa akin yung commercial ng kape kesa kay Vice Ganda [de joke lang, idol ko si Vice]. Minsan mas palong palo pa ang dating ng commercial ng sabong panlaba o kaya ng vitamins kesa manuod ako ng ASAP o kaya ng Party P.

Let’s go SERIOUS about BEAUTY!

 Magandang araw mga katropa! Dahil beauty conscious ako at health conscious, nais kong ibahagi ang link na ito  http://www.mercolahealthyskin.com/?e_cid=20120503_DNL_art_1 [press CTRL+click the link, to open in a new window].

Why Do So Many Skin Care Products
Use These Potentially Hazardous Ingredients?

Simple answer: because they’re cheap, readily available, and easy to dilute.

Are they in the products you currently use? It’s time to check. Go grab your containers of skin care products and check them against the following…

Ingredient Use Dangers
Parabens Heavily used preservatives in the cosmetic industry; used in an estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products. Studies implicate their connection with cancer because their hormone-disrupting qualities mimic estrogen and could disrupt your body’s endocrine system.
Mineral Oil, Paraffin, and Petrolatum These petroleum products coat the skin like plastic – clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins. They can slow cellular development, creating earlier signs of aging.They’re implicated as a suspected cause of cancer. Plus, they can disrupt hormonal activity. When you think about black oil pumped from deep underground, ask yourself why you’d want to put that kind of stuff on your skin…
Sodium laurel or lauryl sulfate (SLS), also known as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) Found in over 90% of personal care products! They break down your skin’s moisture barrier, potentially leading to dry skin with premature aging. And because they easily penetrate your skin, they can allow other chemicals easy access. SLS combined with other chemicals may become a “nitrosamine” – a potent carcinogen.
Acrylamide Found in many facial creams. Linked to mammary tumors.
Propylene glycol Common cosmetic moisturizer and carrier for fragrance oils. May cause dermatitis and skin irritation. May inhibit skin cell growth. Linked to kidney and liver problems.
Phenol carbolic acid Found in many lotions and skin creams. Can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma, and even death from respiratory failure.
Dioxane Hidden in ingredients such as PEG, polysorbates, laureth, ethoxylated alcohols. Very common in personal care products. These chemicals are often contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane that’s easily absorbed through the skin. Its carcinogenicity was first reported in 1965, and later confirmed in studies including one from the National Cancer Institute in 1978. Nasal passages are considered extremely vulnerable, making it, in my opinion, a really bad idea to use these things on your face.
Toluene May be very poisonous! Made from petroleum and coal tar… found in most synthetic fragrances. Chronic exposure linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage…May affect a developing fetus.

You see, your skin is not only your largest organ – it’s also the thinnest. Only 1/10th of an inch separates you from all sorts of toxins. Your skin is highly permeable, allowing what you apply to your skin access to your bloodstream (and thereby to the rest of your body)…

Which is why I remind you not to put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t be willing to eat.

As you’ve heard before, beauty is more than skin deep. Pampering your skin with ‘beauty’ products laced with toxins is playing Russian roulette with your health. More on that in a minute.

But first…

Four Tips to Make You Quit Singing the “Dry-Skin Blues”

Is smooth skin a hopeless goal for you?

Not really. These four strategies can help…

  1. Hydrate your entire system with lots of water and high anti-oxidant green tea. During winter there’s a tendency not to drink as much due to cool temperatures. You may want to bring your water to room temperature to encourage drinking more. Or enjoy more warm green tea, like the Royal Matcha Green Tea sold elsewhere on this website.
  2. Eat a healthy diet of mostly raw foods, foods high in omega-3 fatty acids which produce a hydrating effect from the inside out, and antioxidants which help fight signs of aging. Winter might be a good time to increase your intake of Krill oil also, for its omega-3s – and antioxidants such as Purple Defense and Turmeric.
  3. Take a revitalizing bath – in warm water, not hot! Himalayan salt baths are rejuvenating, and help dry skin to slough off. Hot water is damaging to your skin, so stick with warm water.
  4. Moisturize daily with non-clogging organic moisturizers such as coconut oil or body butter. These nourish your skin instead of clogging it, as many toxin-impaired moisturizers do.

It’s especially important to cleanse and moisturize before you go to bed at night, to remove impurities from your skin before your revitalizing sleep time. Just be sure your moisturizer isn’t tainted with toxins.

Why do I stress organic so much?

Because what you don’t know – or even what’s intentionally hidden from you – really can hurt you.

Continue reading to discover just how dangerous many moisturizer ingredients can be – even some very high-end (expensive) ‘spa’ products.

Be sure to check your products against the list of dangerous ingredients that follows.

Who’s Responsible for this Mess?

The cosmetic industry and their love of loopholes. Some of the biggies are:

  • “For Professional Use Only” – This phrase allows cosmetic companies to remove harmful chemicals from their labels.
  • “Hypoallergenic” – No actual testing is necessary to claim that a product is “hypoallergenic”, “allergy-free” or “safe for sensitive skin”. Neither the FDA nor any other regulating body even requires the companies to prove these claims.
  • Harmful Chemicals – Unless they are intentionally placed in the product, harmful chemicals are not required to be listed. It’s no shocker that you never see these.

What Can You Do?

The cosmetics industry is a $50 billion a year business (in the US alone). They spend a remarkable $2 billion a year on advertising.

Even more appalling than that is the amount of chemicals you place on your skin every year. Women who use makeup daily absorb, on average, 5 pounds each year.

As with the Vioxx debacle, the FDA cannot actively act on a product until after it has already severely injured or killed many people. And because the cosmetic companies are motivated by their profits, they won’t be pointing out the dangers of their products to you any time soon. Your only solution is to rely on your own skills of investigation.

What Can You Do to Keep Your Skin Looking Healthy?

First of all, if you’re doing many of the things I talk about elsewhere on this website, you may have already noticed a major difference in the way your skin looks – as well as other aspects of your health.

Eating according to your nutritional type with plenty of fresh raw organic foods in your diet, and getting enough omega-3 fats are ways to improve your health on many fronts…

And need I mention exercise? Through exercise, your skin detoxifies impurities from your system – what you know as perspiration.

But beyond that, here’s a critically important issue you need to be aware of…

Just 5 Minutes Per Day Gets You on the Road
to a More Youthful-Looking, Vibrant Face

Every day of your life, pollution, grime, and dust attach themselves to the surface of your skin.

If you don’t take a couple minutes daily to cleanse your face and unclog your pores, your skin may look sluggish – instead of at its bright and shining best.

Cleaning your skin is important, just like keeping your internal organs clean and healthy is.

But here’s a caveat…

Take Your Own Hippocratic Oath for Skin Care (“First, Do No Harm”)

It may seem like a cliché, but there are things you can do to prevent damaging your skin. Many of the visible signs of aging are caused by external factors that you can at least partially control.

These actions may be the easiest and least expensive things you can do to prevent damage to your skin, gain a more youthful appearance, and build a strong foundation for your pro-active natural skin care. Not to mention, creating a buzz about your new looks.

Please be aware that skin damage doesn’t always involve pain or immediate visible change, and can often go unnoticed for some time. But the cumulative actions you begin taking today can also improve your skin slowly over time. So get started today doing these simple things:

    • Avoid or minimize damage from hot water and chlorine. Although taking baths and showers may seem like it’s health-promoting and relaxing, your skin may disagree – especially if you have chlorinated water, which is almost certainly the case (unless your water comes from a well).

Chlorine causes oxidative damage. The hotter the water, the more potential for damage – because the rate of chemical reactions increases with temperature. Hot water may cause your skin to age faster.

So what can you do? Adjust your water temperature to be a bit cooler, limit your showers to one per day, and decrease your soak time in the bath.

    • Use gentle and safe skin care products – organic whenever possible. Your skin absorbs it all. Don’t compromise your health and the health of your skin by using potential poisons.
    • Be very sure to remove your makeup each evening. It’s a really bad idea to flop into bed, leaving makeup – not to mention environmental grime – on your face while you sleep. Take a couple minutes to remove it, and you’ll find your face looking and feeling younger.
    • Proper Sleeping Position
      Sleeping on your back reduces gravitational pull on your face. Be sure you remove your make-up before sleeping. Leaving it on during sleep creates extra stress on your skin. Use botanicals from nature for a nutritional approach to your beauty.
    • Sleep on your back. Gravity creates a downward drag on your skin all day. Give your skin a break at night. By sleeping on your back, you reduce gravitational pull on your face. If you press your face to your pillow, you will likely experience increased puffiness in the morning.
    • Don’t smoke… for your general health’s sake, and for younger looking skin. Smoking causes free radical production, which is one cause of the signs of aging.
    • If you will be in the sun for extended periods of time, use sunscreen with safe and effective ingredients, such as Mercola Natural Sunscreen.
    • Limit exfoliation to twice per week and use a gentle exfoliator. Exfoliation refreshes your skin’s surfaces and brightens your appearance as it removes dead cells from the surface of your skin. But if you exfoliate too often or too aggressively, you risk damaging living cells.
    • Apply your skin care products to warm skin in order to help your skin appear healthier. This maximizes absorption. If your skin is cold, use a warm towel to warm your skin.
    • Never pull or rub your skin. Apply your skin care products gently, and lightly tap for a few moments to help your skin absorb them. Rubbing stretches your skin and can promote sagging and wrinkles. (Note: This principle includes leaning your face on your hand while sitting at a desk, which also stretches your skin.)
    • Don’t expect overnight changes. Even if you start doing everything right today, don’t be discouraged with seeming lack of progress tomorrow.

It may take a month or even two to three months to notice changes. Plus, it’s quite possible that others will notice your increasingly youthful-looking face before you do.

Remember: it took years to get where you are today, so show patience when expecting changes and improvements.

Now that you’re taking these practical steps as well as choosing not to use dangerous and damaging products on your skin, let’s explore your skin care alternatives – organic food products from nature’s storehouse.

Nourishing Botanicals for Your Skin’s Healthy Appearance

Whenever you apply skin care products, it is ideal to use products from nature that nourish your skin the same way you nourish your body. Look for products that encourage rejuvenation and work synergistically with your own skin to support its efforts toward a healthy appearance.

The potentially dangerous ingredients listed above concerns me greatly. And you know me to be passionate about changing the existing health paradigm. So it should be no surprise that I considered it imperative to locate a wholesome source of skin care products for you.

Last year we introduced USDA Certified Organic Body Butter, which has been enormously popular.

But Body Butter was hardly a complete skin care line. So we’ve been working diligently to find additional skin care products to promote your skin’s healthy appearance…

Ang nabasa ninyo ay mula sa http://www.mercolahealthyskin.com at hindi saklaw ng pino kong utak. Halaw lamang ito at hindi ko hawak ang inyong reaksyon pero lima sa make-up na gamit ko ay nagtataglay ng ilan sa mga harmful ingredients na nabanggit at itinigil ko agad ang paggamit mula nang mabasa ko ito… Hope this helps!
