I have actually set aside the needed amount when I received my salary on the 25th of September. However, forgot that on the 27th of September was the schedule for the immunization [...]

Standing On A Crossroad of Life

Standing on a cross road

1st of September, 2014. Again I’m standing on a crossroad of life.  The truth is I had been staring at this crossroad from afar, but now I have reached that point in time that I should stand on this crossroad and choose which way to go. The crossroad that I am particularly in right now [...]

My Health Goals for 2014 Not that I’m not healthy, in fact when I had my blood chemistry checked less than a year ago, everything is still normal. My shape, however – and I do mean it literally – is not so good. To be honest, my waist line is a few inches bigger than [...]

An Irresponsible Prank

On the 1st of December of 2013 a couple of hours before midnight, hundreds of people or a thousand even from the coastal villages of Roxas City (Philippines) and on some other coastal municipalities left their homes in fear of an impending tsunami. (Read http://reflectionsby.me.pn/2013/12/tsunami-scare/) It turned out that the fear of a tsunami hitting [...]

Tsunami Scare

Roxas City, Capiz- It was around 10:30 PM. I barely had fallen asleep when I was awaken by the noise of a very unusual heavy flow of vehicles passing and the voices of people outside my house.
