Join The Health Care Industry Through Medical Assistant Training

Most people in the Philippines where I came from and I believe in most countries as well, think that you have to be either a doctor or a nurse to get easily employed in the health occupations in the USA. I guess this is a misconception. While it is true that a degree in medicine or in nursing would easily land you in a gainful job here, you really don't have to be a doctor or a nurse to get one. There are other medical assistant careers that you can take to be in the health care professions such as a medical office manager, radiologist, ultrasound technician, pharmacy technician, x-ray technician, dental assistant and a lot more.

If you are really interested in any of these, find out with Medical Assistant Training Schools because they have the list of highly recommended medical assistant schools and the various medical assistant training programs that are available in different locations in the country, whether these are available at leading online schools or at campus healthcare schools. They can also provide you with the latest information on certification from these schools. So, wherever you are in the USA, why don't you keep in touch with Medical Assistant Training Schools and save yourself from the tremendous task of finding which medical assistant programs or medical assistant careers you might be interested with? They could help you out with available information on which ones would best fit your needs based on location, financial requirements and level of training, among other things. Medical Assistant Training Schools is definitely your first step in realizing your American dream.

Wazz up?

Good morning, i mean, good afternoon everyone! So, how's everyone doing? Busy preparing for the new year? Well, over here, it's a quiet day for me and hubby. I just got up! See how good i am in bed, lol! I tell you, i can sleep all day! But anyway, have a great Sunday to everyone! I hope you are feeling great today, all cheered up and remember to keep that flashing smile (i said "smile" NOT "smell") like i always do! Happy Sunday everyone, have a great one! - The place for myspace comments, glitters, graphics, backgrounds and codes

Pacquiao vs. Marquez Most Awaited Rematch

Filipino boxing fans like me should not miss this most-awaited rematch of our very own Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Mexican belt holder Juan Marquez on March 15, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is gonna be the biggest fight of the year which has been keeping us all excited - Filipinos and Mexican alike! The fight will also be shown at HBO on Pay Per View so everyone would have the chance to witness this must-see bout. Who could ever forget that fight they had four years ago when Pacquiao knocked Marquez three times on the first round but Marquez fought back and the fight ended up to a split draw. This fight will be one of the biggest fights in their boxing careers so it's gonna be a big event in the boxing history.

I'm sure you don't want to miss this, do you? If you are into it, why not buy your Pacquiao/Marquez tickets now? I know most of my fellow Filipinos have already marked their calendars for this fight. Since I am too far from Las Vegas, I will be watching it at HBO but it would really be great to watch this bout in Las Vegas. So, those who are really interested, please don't forget to buy your Pacquiao/Marquez tickets now!

Happy Birthday!

My mother-in-law treated us to a dinner tonight because it is my husband's birthday. After the dinner we came home with my sister-in-law and her husband and had some cherry pie for the dessert. That was how simple his supposed-to-be special day went by, nothing big, nothing fancy! I wish i got him something special but there was none, my bad! I might just give him something really special but not tonight, hehe! He is already in bed by now while i am still blogging.

DESA For Your Home Heating Needs

With this freezing weather, a good working heater is a nice thing to have. When we got an email from mom that she would be spending Christmas with us, we got worried because the room where she would be using needed a new heater. I immediately checked with Desa's Online Outlet where we got our room heater before. I found one from their selection of gas propane heaters and it really works great. We got it on time, just before mom got here.

Another from Juliana

Thanks dear Juliana for including me in this tag again, i really appreciate it! Well, i admire women who know how to wear make up and i wish i could do that too but i really am scared of trying different things on my face because my skin is so sensitive, i seldom find anything that works well with it. That is why my beauty element turned out as earth maybe because mukha akong lupa, hehehehe! Or amoy lupa, bwahahahaha! Seriously, here is the result:

Your Beauty Element is Earth

You are the epitome of a natural beauty. Your look is definitely effortless.

And while you shy away from a lot of make-up and accessories, you're no granola girl either!

Nations Finance In UK For Your Loan Needs

Getting any kind of loans is now so easy for everybody who has the capacity to pay, which is great. I just want to warn you though not to just grab the first opportunity that comes your way. Compare loans, because if you are not careful enough, you may end up in more debts, which is not really what loans are for.

Getting loans come with responsibility - the responsibility to repay. So, it is wise to only pick the kind of loan that suits your needs. Ask yourself first these questions: "Can I afford it?" Do I really need it? If your answer is "yes" to both questions, then go for it! If you need emergency cash, you may get a personal unsecured loan, which is good, if you have a good credit. People with bad credit are better off with secured loans because they would be charged higher rates for unsecured loans. Secured loans are those that need any of your properties as collateral, like in homeowner loans.

Those in UK are very lucky to have Nations Finance that could help them in getting any kind of loans - home, car, personal, debt consolidations and a lot more. There, you will find everything you need to know about loans and the list of lenders that could provide you the kind of loans and corresponding terms that match your needs. For your loan needs, Nations Finance is the place to be!

Welcome genius readers, lol!

I did this test in my other blogs, thanks to Darlene for the idea. I wanna see how it is with this blog and the result says those at genius level could read my blog, lol! Does it mean that all of you who are reading my blog and understand it are all genius? That's good then! Honestly, it got me thinking what i need to do to reach out to those in the lowest level. Probably, my bisdak or tagalog jokes have something to do with it, don't you think so? Anyway, here is my blog's readability result:

Disorder in the Courts

So you think all lawyers, i mean liars, i mean attorney-at-large are really brilliant people just because they talk in deep English using legal terms that only them could fathom? I wonder how witnesses could really understand these legal terms sometimes such that they would always suggest the use of metaphor so instead of saying " he showed his (private part) and began touching my (private part), a witness should use metaphor so he would say " he showed his metaphor and began touching my metaphor..." Isn't that funny? Talking about funny things that happen in an actual court hearing, here are some for your entertainment.

These are from a book called "Disorder in the Courts of America", and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.

ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, "Where am I, Cathy?"
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan.

ATTORNEY: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?
WITNESS: We both do.
WITNESS: Yes, voodoo.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year- old, how old is he?
WITNESS: Uh, he's twenty-one.. .

ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Would you repeat the question?

ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?

ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard.
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?

ATTORNEY : Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All my autopsies are performed on dead people.

ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?

ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy on him!

ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure ?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

Heard about these new tagalog quotes?

I wanna thank my friend Jane who keeps me updated with jokes and funny emails. This one is a list of some new "salawikain" but i wanna apologize to my non-tagalog readers because these are mostly in tagalog. To my tagalog readers, hope i made your day! Here you go:

Ang buhay ay parang bato, it's hard.
Behind the clouds are the other clouds.
Do unto others ... then run!!!
Kapag puno na ang salop, kumuha na ng ibang salop.
Magbiro ka na sa lasing, magbiro ka na sa bagong gising, huwag lang sa lasing na bagong gising. When all else fails, follow instructions.
Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika, lumaki sa ibang bansa.
To err is human, to errs is humans.
Ang taong nagigipit ... sa bumbay kumakapit
Pag may usok ... may nag-iihaw
Kapag may sinuksok at walang madukot, may nandukot.
Walang matigas na tinapay sa gutom na tao.
Kapag may tiyaga, may nilaga. Kapag may taga, may tahi.
Huli man daw at magaling, undertime pa rin.
Ang naglalakad ng matulin, late na sa appointment
Matalino man ang matsing, matsing pa rin.
Aanhin ang palasyo kung ang nakatira ay kuwago, mabuti pa ang bahay kubo, sa paligid puno ng linga.
Kapag maikli ang kumot, tumangkad ka na!
Hindi lahat ng kumikinang ay ginto ... muta lang yan.
Kapag ang puno mabunga ... mataba ang lupa!
When it rains ... it floods.
Pagkahaba haba man ng prusisyon ... mauubusan din ng kandila.
Try and try until you succeed... or else try another.
Kapag maiksi na ang kumot, bumili ka na ng bago.
If you can"t beat them, shoot them. (Nalundasan)
An apple a day is too expensive.
Aanhin pa ang damo kung ang garden mo"y sementado
Aanhin pa ang damo kung bato na ang uso

I can relate.....

This one is really funny! As a woman, i can relate to this very well! I guess all women have been in this situation one way or another. Have you experienced when you are in a public place and you need to go to the toilet? I have been on these many times like i was on a mall and i need to go, there is a long line but i have to wait, and when your inside, you find out there is no toilet paper, lol! Moral of the story: always keep tissue paper or toilet paper or any napkin handy wherever you go in case of emergency. Read this story that i got in my mail today....
Warning! This is a long story but worth reading if you want some something for laughs!

When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied. Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the stall. You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants! The dispenser for the modern "seat covers" (invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy, but empty.

You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume " The Stance."

In this position your aging, toneless thigh muscles begin to shake. You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet paper on it, so you hold "The Stance." To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more.

You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday - the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck, that now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That would have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It's still smaller than your thumbnail .

Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work. The door hits your purse, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet."Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the TOILET SEAT.

It is wet of course. You bolt up, knowing all too well that it's too late.Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper - not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try. You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get."

By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes. The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in too.

At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat. You're exhausted. You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks. You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors, so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting.

You are no longer able to smile politely to them. A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (Where was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this."

As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom. Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?"

This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with a public restrooms (rest??? you've GOT to be kidding!!). It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto your purse and hand you Kleenex under the door! This HAD to be written by a woman! No one else could describe it so accurately!

In a previous post, i was talking about halloween which made me thought about sharing a video which i find fit for the halloween season. I hope you enjoy it like i did! What makes it funny is seeing how people usually react in different situations. It's like i am seeing myself there, lol! But please, don't try to do these especially if you are not sure about the health conditions of people you wanna play these pranks with. Here is the video for your entertainment.

Book Your Trips With Hotel Reservations

I was just chatting with my Indonesian friend who went to a two-week vacation last August in Germany, Austria and Italy. She was with another friend who is also my friend and from the photos she sent me, it is pretty obvious that they really had a blast! She told me, "you should see those very beautiful sceneries with flower-filled rolling hills and valleys that you only see in the movies!" I suddenly felt envious and promised myself to see these someday. Didn't I tell you that they planned their trip with the help of Hotel Reservations, which I strongly suggested when they asked me before their trip? They are just so grateful they booked their trip with Hotel Reservations. My friend said that on her next trips which she does every year, she would always use Hotel Reservations and have even recommended it to her boss who is going on a holiday trip in China next month. I am just glad I was able to help, you know.

Hotel Reservations could find you the best deals on flights, hotels, motels, resorts, car rentals and vacation packages. You can get huge hotel discounts up to 70% if you book with them. I never tire sharing this site with my friends and family because it saves you a lot of money without compromising quality of your trips. I have yet to use their services but I will surely book with them in my next vacation that I so look forward to, hopefully next year!

Halloween costume ....

Halloween is coming folks and i'm sure you are already getting ready with your favorite halloween costume. Well, i haven't really done anything like that for halloween, i'm sure it would have been different if i got kids here. I just enjoy watching those kids in their cute halloween costumes. Hey, got you a funny joke i wanna share with you which i found hilarious! read on and have fun!

A cabbie picks up a Nun.
She gets into the cab, and notices that the VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her.She asks him why he is staring.He replies:"I have a question to ask you but I don't want to offend you."She answers, "My son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive.""Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me."She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that: #1, you have to be single and #2, you must be Catholic."The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I'm single and Catholic!""OK" the nun says. "Pull into the next alley."The nun fulfills his fantasy, with a kiss that would make a hooker blush.But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying."My dear child," says the nun, "why are you crying?""Forgive me but I've sinned. I lied and I must confess, I'm married and I'm Jewish."The nun says, "That's OK. My name is Kevin and I'm going to a Halloween party."

I Have 100% Trust On

Have you ever been in situations where you get different recommendations from people you trust about the same subject, for instance the best product for menopause or the best treatment for hair loss and everything. It gets so confusing, you don’t know who to listen to. I usually seek not only for second or third opinions, but more than that depending on the urgency of the matter. The more opinions I get, the better. And I guess I found the right place where I can depend on matters like these. is where we could get the best recommendations on certain products as it provides the most accurate ranking on popular products in the market today. I see these rankings as very credible because these are based on different measures like consultations with people who actually tried the product, health care professionals, data sales and ranks, and customers ranking and reviews.
So when my brother-in-law was asking about the best treatment for his hair loss problem, I was so quick to suggest provillus, thanks to! This site is a great help for people who are constantly looking for the best products for certain illness and health problems. I am always glad to share this site among my friends and they have always been grateful for that. The good thing is, does not only rank health products but also sites that provide cash advance and payday loans for people who need emergency cash. It saves you a lot of time and trouble if you are pointed to the right direction and this is what is here for. Check it out!

you think you can dance?

I can dance and i love dancing but of course not the break dancing and those fast dance steps i see among young kids, lol! I cannot even do the spaghetti dance which was famous among kids in the Philippines 4 years ago. I am only good for ballroom dancing and slow disco, hehe! My husband hates it whenever i ask him to dance and he never did! I have seen horses and dogs dance and they're just amazing! Here is video showing a dog with excellent skills. Boy, does he dance so well!

I Love My Online Fashion Store!

I definitely have grown bigger since I got here in the US in 2004! I could hardly fit in the clothes that I brought with me especially my denim jeans. I badly need new sets of denim jeans but I couldn’t find the ones I am comfortable with. I want something that is comfortable and would hide my growing “love handles,” lol! Thanks God, I found this amazing online fashion store called! I think I just found what I was looking for in their wide selection of seven for all mankind denim jeans! I think I would look better in a pair of seven for all mankind denim jeans hoping I might look slimmer on it, and since it is stretchable, it should be comfortable for me while hiding my unwanted bulges, lol!
Like me, my husband has also gained a lot of weight and he seldom wears his old denim jeans now. I guess I found something for him on Christmas – maybe a new pair of nudie jeans! He is not so conscious about fashion and I usually do the shopping for his clothes. I think he would look fine in a nudie!
the seven for all mankind denim jeans for me (L) and nudie jeans for hubby (R)

I love shopping online and just topped my list of online fashion stores I don’t mind visiting daily! You should take a peek at this site and find out why my friends and I love shopping at Tobi!

Thanks Francine!

I got a recognition award from dear Francine as one of the blogs she thought was creative. I really don't think mine shows creativity because i don't have that skill which i wished i have unlike most bloggers. But i am still so thankful that Francine finds my blog as creative, though! She said, and i quote:

"Tess - I haven’t talked to her that much but I’m starting to know her little by little. I find her nice and kind girl." Thanks for the finding me as a nice and kind girl and i try my best to stay that way. Here is the award i got from her:

The Easy Way To Get Cash Advance

Back when I was still in the Philippines, borrowing money from friends and relatives was so easy for me to do because it was a common practice there. Here in the US, I guess life is different. My husband told me, he is not so comfortable borrowing money even from his mom. Borrowing money, he warned me, is also difficult especially if you have a bad credit. Well, I guess he may be right, only if he doesn’t know that there are places where he could get financial help when he needs it. One great place is CashAdvance1500, an online site that could help you in getting fast cash advance and payday loans!

Kids in school think fast ....

Most of the time, kids think faster than us adults, they always have a ready answer although they also seem to have a ready question to every answer. When my kids were younger, they have endless questions, i sometimes give up. But i do admit that sometimes i find myself grasping for words or answers to their questions that i just say "will you just shut up and stop talking!" But in reality, i just don't know how to answer them, lol! Here are some kids and teacher sceeario in school that could affirm that kids think fast...

TEACHER: Why are you late?
WEBSTER: Because of the sign.
TEACHER: What sign?
WEBSTER: The one that says, "School Ahead, Go Slow."

TEACHER: Cindy, why are you doing your math multiplication On the floor?
CINDY: You told me to do it without using tables!

TEACHER: John, how do you spell "crocodile?"
TEACHER: No, that's wrong JOHN: Maybe it s wrong, but you asked me how I spell it!

TEACHER: What is the chemical formula for water?
TEACHER: What are you talking about?
SARAH: Yesterday you said it's H to O!

TEACHER: George, go to the map and find North America.
GEORGE: Here it is!
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
CLASS: George!

TEACHER: Willie, name one important thing we have today that we didn't have 100 years ago.

TEACHER: Tommy, why do you always get so dirty?
TOMMY: Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are.

TEACHER: Ellen, give me a sentence starting with "I."
ELLEN: I is...
TEACHER: No, Ellen..... Always say, "I am."
ELLEN: All right... "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet."

TEACHER: "Can anybody give an example of a COINCIDENCE?
JOHNNY: "Sir, my mother and Father got married on the same day, same time."

TEACHER: "George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted doing it. Now do you know why his father didn't punish him?"
JOHNNY: "Because George still had the ax in his hand."

TEACHER: Now, Sam, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?
SAM: No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a good cook.

TEACHER : Desmond, your composition on "My Dog" is exactly the same as your brother's. Did you copy his?
DESMOND: No, teacher, it's the same dog!

TEACHER: What do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
PUPIL: A teacher.

SYLVIA: Dad, can you write in the dark?
FATHER: I think so. What do you want me to write?
SYLVIA: Your name on this report card

Having Fun With Phelios Games

We were doing some cleaning last night and found so many pc games my husband bought which were barely used and some were not even used at all. And these are expensive games, what a waste! I told him about phelios games where he could play all kinds of games and try them first through their free download games before he buys it. That way, he would only buy what he really likes, in a much lower cost. Phelios is an independent developer of downloadable games for Windows and Macintosh. They continue to create games and developing new ones to reach a wider range of people with different interests and in all ages. So, in your spare time, visit Phelios and browse their games and download those you want and start playing. You can even ask to be notified about new game releases and updates! I am having a blast with phelios games especially their tycoon games while my husband is more interested in their mac games. Join us at Phelios and have fun!


In my previous post, we talked about how rampant corruption is and mind you, it is not only in the Philippines, it is worldwide! You would be amazed to know about the statistics. I have learned that even in rich countries like the USA, there is corruption. So, what then is the difference between the corruption in the Philippines and corruption in the US? Well, here is the answer: In the US, they go to jail. In the Philippines, they go to US! (joke, joke, joke!)

Pinoy hell...

It is amazing how we handle even the most serious problem our country has - corruption! That is what i like being a Filipino: we can make fun and laugh at our own problems, maybe the secret behind staying young-looking huh! Well, speaking of corruption, don't you know that it is so widespread that it even reaches hell? Read this joke about the Pinoy hell...

The cynicism is so obvious the only ones who ignore it are the public officials...

A Pinoy dies and goes to hell. There he finds that there is a different hell for each country. He goes first to the German hell and asks, "What do they do here?" He is told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the German devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day." The man does not like the sound of that at all, so he moves on. He checks out the USA hell as well as the Russian hell and many more. He discovers that they are all more or less the same as the German hell.

Then he comes to the Filipino hell and finds that there is a very long line of people waiting to get in. Amazed he asks, "What do they do here?" He is told "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the Filipino devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day." "But that is exactly the same as all the other hells - why are there so many people waiting to get in?" Because there is always a brownout, so the electric chair does not work.Somebody stole all the nails to sell it "por kilo". And the devil used to be a public official, so he comes in, punches his time-card, shakes hands with all the people waiting there and then goes back home..."

Then they continue to travel...
Japanese : that podium, how long did it take to built up?
Taxi driver : 5 months sir!
Japanese : very very slow, in Japan too fast, it will only take 3 months.
Upon seeing megamall..
Japanese : how about that building megamall?
Taxi driver: 3 months only sir!
Japanese: what? It's so slow, in Japan very very fast! It will only take 2 months!

Japanese : how much will im gonna pay?
Taxi driver: P5,000 sir.
Japanese : too expensive!
Taxi driver: well sir, this meter was made in Japan that's why it count very very fast!
Nobody beats the pinoy, i tell yah!

My bitter este better half .......

This is another great tag from In-in! I asked hubby's permission first before i posted his pics here and he said it's fine with him so here he is:

husband at 4 years old (L) and 7 years old (R)

at 24 years old (L) and pic at right was taken taken 3 years ago (2004)

My husband's name is Larry Edward. We met online at SeniorFriendFinder (obvious ba na pang gurang, lol!). He has the patience of a saint, very loving, takes really good care of me and my kids and tries to adjust with my weird habits, lol! Maybe 20-30 years from now, we will be antik by then and already in our second childhood, hehehe! I hope both of us are still around by then and enjoying life with kids and grandkids. I would love to retire in the Philippines and he has thought of that too but we still don't know how things work.

Now, for those with papa and mama and jowa, etc, feel free to do this! Thanks and have fun!

Easy money...

An American attorney had just finished a guest lecture at a law symposium in Manila, when a Filipino lawyer approached him. The Pinoy lawyer asked, "Is it true, that a person can fall down on a sidewalk in your country and then sue the landowners for lots of money?"Told that it was true, the lawyer turned to his partner and started speaking rapidly in Tagalog. His partner grinned and began nodding vigorously. When they stopped, the American attorney asked if they wanted to move to America to practice law."No, no," one Pinoy attorney replied. "We want to move to America to fall down on sidewalks!"

You see, most people in the Philippines think that money is really easy to earn here. I used to think that way too although i always heard that it wasn't true! My dear kababayan, you may easily be compensated here but you also have to go through the ropes. We earn green money here but we also spend green money so it's all the same. I admit life here is more comfortable though, maybe because there is not much pollution, people don't give politics a big deal but i believe corruption is a wordwide problem even here in the US! So, are you still interested to come here and fall down the sidewalks? I bet, lol!

The Modern Inday

My friend Jane sent me this email about the modern Inday. Inday is the typical housemaid or babysitter rolled into one. Inday to me is our "angels" in the Philippine household. I used to depend a lot on Inday back in the Philippines because without her, I couldn't work and earn a living. Well, Inday has gone a long way. Our Inday has gone global. Let's take a look at the modern Inday. Thank you Jane for sharing this joke.
"I believe that my trained skills and expertise in management with the use of standard tools, and my discipline and experience will contribute significantly to the value of work that you want. My creativity, productivity and work efficiency and the high quality of outcomes I can offer will boost the work progress..."
- sagot ni Inday sa interview ng bago nyang amo! (Inday's reply when interviewed by her new employer)

"Potatoes, when consumed in their raw state are rapidly converted to glucose that raises insulin levels because of its simple sugar. When cooked in high temperatures like French fries, they produce large amount of free radicals in the body causing aging, clotting, inflammation, cancer, weight gain. One French fry is worse that one cigarette."
- sagot ni Inday sa amo nya kung bakit di sya nagluluto ng French fries. (Nutritionist din pala si Inday!) (Inday's reply when her employer asked her why she doesn't cook french fries. So Inday is also a nutritionist huh!)

"It's absurd! It was never a fact that he will inflict a fight. I can only imagine how you can handle schizophrenic kids on this educational institution. Revise your policies because it sucks!"
- Inday kasama si Junior sa principal's office. (Tulala ang principal) (Inday with Junior at the principal's office. The principal was shocked!)

Stop your raucous behavior. It is bound to result in property damages and if that happens there will be corresponding punishment inflicted upon you!"
- Inday, pinagbabawalan ang mga bata na wag malikot. (
Inday telling the kids to stop moving around).
"Nurture others with positive, ruthful words, not words that hurt. It doesn't cost anything to do so. But mean what you say, and say what you mean. If you cannot be generous financially, at least be generous with your words."
- yan ang sabi ni Inday nung di sya pinautang at pinagmumura pa ng amo nya. (
That's what Inday said to her employer when her employer denied her request to borrow money, and instead bad mouthed/cursed Inday)
"Dear Sir/Madam,
Attached herewith is a list of proposed acquisition in line with my proposal to upgrade your household facilities. I have already made initial survey of current market prices. Note however that prices could vary depending on the prevailing exchange rate and aggregate supply and demand which we also monitor on an hourly basis."
- si Inday, nagpapaalam para mamalengke! (Inday asking permission to go to the market)

"The consistency was fine. But you see, it seems that the increased amount of sodium chloride affected the taste drastically and those actions are irreversible. I do apologize."
- nageexplain si Inday kung bakit maalat ang ulam (aba, career much si Inday!) (
Inday explaining why the food she cooked was too salty)

"Listening to the nonsense talk about someone's life is a pathetic way of entertainment. It doesn't contribute to the good of the society. I hate character assassinators! "
- reklamo ni Inday ng natsismis sya ng kapitbahay! (di ko kinaya si Inday!) (
Inday about her being the subject of gossip by a neighbor)

Amo: Bakit nagkalat ang basura sa likod ng bahay?! (Employer asked why garbage is scattered all over the back of the house)
Inday: A change in weather patterns might have occurred, wreaking havoc to the surroundings. The way the debris are scattered indicates that the gust of wind was going northeast causing damage to the path it was heading for.
Amo: (nosebleed!) (Employer nosebled!)

Siguro naman nabasa nyo na ang resignation letter ni Inday. May bago nang career ngayon si Inday. Isa na syang... Call Center Agent! (I guess you already read Inday's resignation letter as she has changed career. Inday is now ... a Call Center Agent!)
