This day in history from:

should jueteng be legalized? why?

To me, gambling, by itself, is not wrong. But of course, everything in moderation is wrong. So when there's nothing inherently wrong with gambling (and it is allowed if state-sanctioned), I don't see any reason why it should not be legalized.

But of course, if jueteng is legalized, there will be a new illegal game in town. That's because we all love things that are illegal don't we? Just my two cents.

Ask me anything

SK as in sanguniang kabataan?

Precisely. They have no function only to breed new traditional politicians, which we really don't need. IMHO

should SK be abolished? why? why not?

What's SK? heheheheheheh!

Ask me anything

if you have time, pls read this: http://vigilantcitizen.com/?p=3979 ... your thoughts on it?

There's a crime in the Revised Penal Code named "offending religious feelings."

Ask me anything

What do you listen to in the mornings? A particular radio show or set of songs?

I set my celphone to play "I Will Sing Forever" every weekdays at 5 a.m. When I listen to songs in the morning, they belong to generally that genre. Nothing heavy in the morning.

Ask me anything

How would you answer if someone told you "Hello, I love you. Won't you tell me your name?" (And yes. This references a song :P)

Ignore. That's impossible in my case. Hehehehehe

Ask me anything

What was breakfast? :D

Have not eaten yet but there's spag, bread and coffee here in the office.

Nakapaglaro ka ba ng syato? Naaalala mo pa ba kung paano?

Yes. But I already forgot how.

Ask me anything

Are there any games from your childhood that you've taught your children?

Actually, none. Times are so different today from when I was a kid.

Ask me anything

All dads dread that moment, I think. But what about the prom and grad ball in high school? What if someone wants to ask her to be his date? What if she wants a particular guy to be her date? I am really curious about a father's perspective.

I'm all for her attending those balls (though I did not attend mine). Anyway it's just a date. Anyway, full disclosure is still my standard. As long as I meet the guy and he seems ok, I will give my permission. The thing is, the more you restrict kids the more they want to do it. So I'd rather just supervise and not appear as the bad guy in any case.

Ask me anything

What is your favorite game of all time? Could be something physical like patintero, a board game like chess or monopoly, could be a video game. Anything :)

Of all time? That would be the Civilization series.

Ask me anything

When your daughter gets suitors, how do you plan to treat them? XD

Gosh what a hard question because the time is almost here. Basically, my policy is I'd rather see them than not see them so if at all she would entertain them. So call me old-fashioned by I would require her suitors to visit the house and date only after I see them. I's a civilized guy so I would treat her potential suitors right. Per our agreement, she would start entertaining suitors only in college.

Ask me anything

What liberties do you believe parents should give their children?

As much as possible so long as they don't get hurt. I'm a believer of disclosure and trust more than liberties and restrictions when it comes to parenting.

Ask me anything

Would you change your name if you could?

No. Perfectly fine with my name.

Ask me anything

Are you planning to re-marry?

Who asked that? Hahahahah! No plans at all. But of course who's to say in the future. She may still be out there. But if not, I have no problems with it just the same.

Ask me anything

What new thing are you learning now?

Still learning how to play the sax and the clarinet.

Ask me anything

Happiness or success?

Happiness, definitely. That's already success.

Ask me anything

What's your cherished memory from your school days? (Could be from elem, high school or college)

Just hanging out with my friends singing songs with someone on the guitar. "In Between Days" by The Cure was our class anthem.

Ask me anything

I'm actually contented with this one and what I'm doing right now.

True








True
by Spandau Ballet


So true
Funny how it seems
Always in time, but never in line for dreams
Head over heels, when toe to toe
This is the sound of my soul
This is the sound
I bought a ticket to the world
But now I've come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line
Oh I want the truth to be said

I know this much is true

With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue
Dissolve the nerves that have just begun
Listening to Marvin (all night long)

This is the sound of my soul
This is the sound....

Always slipping from my hands
Sand's a time of its own
Take your seaside arms and write the next line
Oh I want the truth to be known

I know this much is true (x2)

I bought a ticket to the world
But now I've come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line
Oh I want the truth to be said

I know this much is true (x2)

This much is true

I know this much is true

Put it out

I want to put it out. But how?





Firewoman
by Barbie Almalbis-Honasan


The moons gone down
I know you're still awake
This heart I've found
I didn't intend to break
Cause I've seen the world from down there
And it wasn't a pretty sight
Now the circle is turning
Are you armed for the fight
I wanna be a firewoman
I'll water down your desire
Cause I know this love is a killer
I wanna put out your fire
Apology is futility
Now destiny is not a friend
Did you come for danger
You gave me love for pain
Now you're much more than a stranger
I wanna give you love
But all I have is rain
I'm gonna put it out

Miracles Happen

So how are you enjoying your long weekend so far?

Just a song from our past, as we re-watched "The Princess Diaries" last night. 

As we watched this, I remembered the good times with fondness. There was a time when Bea insisted to watch this every single day.

I have to admit it was a good first four years. Only that the last two years canceled it out and even turned the books red.

Anyway, enjoy the song for what it's worth.


Miracles Happen
by Myra
from the movie "The Princess Diaries"

Miracles happen, miracles happen
You showed me faith is not blind
I don't need wings to help me fly
Miracles happen, miracles happen

I can't imagine living my life without you now
Not ever having you around
We found our way out
(on you I can depend)
Don't have to look back to realize how far we've come
There are million reasons
I'm looking up
I don't want this to end

Nothing
Nothing should ever bring you down
Knowing what goes around will come around

You showed me faith is not blind
I don't need wings to help me fly
Miracles happen, once in a while
When you believe
(miracles happen)
You showed me dreams come to life
That taking a chance on us was right
All things will come with a little time
When You believe

There is no question we found the missing pieces
Our picture is completed
It's fallen into place
(it's fallen into place)
This is our moment, you and I are looking up
Someone is watching over us
Keeping me close
Closer to you everyday

Nowhere
Nowhere on earth I'd rather be
No one can take this away from you and me

You showed me faith is not blind
I don't need wings to help me fly
Miracles happen, once in a while
When you believe
(miracles happen)
You showed me dreams come to life
That taking a chance on us was right
All things will come with a little time
When You believe

When you believe
The soul is a shining light
When you believe
The heart has the will to fight
You can do anything, don't be afraid
We're gonna find our way

You showed me faith is not blind
I don't need wings to help me fly
Miracles happen, once in a while
When you believe
(miracles happen)
You showed me dreams come to life
That taking a chance on us was right
All things will come with a little time
When You believe

Getting to Know Each Other
by Gerrard Kenny

I call you and you call me
It's funny how we get on so easily
We're just friends, aren't we?
You've got yours, I've got mine
And friends are all we ever can be

(But) We're getting to know each other
A little too well
We're starting to show our feelings
And people can tell
Everytime that your eyes meet mine
I light up like a neon sign
Yes, we're getting to know each other
A little too well.

We have lunch every now and then
And I find myself humming love songs again and again
Oh, and too many nights
I'm workin' till ten
And I hope that you know
That it's hopeless to go on when..

We're getting to know each other
A little too well
We're starting to show our feelings
And people can tell
Everytime that your eyes meet mine
I light up like a neon sign
Yes, we're getting to know each other
A little too well

Getting to know each other
A little too well

We've Only Just Begun

A product of a Last Song Syndrome during yesterday's #sentisabado Twitter fest. Enjoy the rest of your week, everyone!



We've Only Just Begun
(Paul Williams and Roger Nichols)

We've only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way.
And yes, We've just begun.

Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start our walking and learn to run.
And yes, We've just begun.

Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over just the two of us,
Working together day to day
Together.

And when the evening comes we smile,
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow,
And yes, We've just begun.

Disaster relief, sustainable development & community service

Side Prayers

PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY
Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

THE LAWYER'S PRAYER
May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

THE JABEZ PRAYER
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

Side Oath

The Lawyer's Oath
I do solemnly swear that
I will maintain allegiance to
the Republic of the Philippines,
I will support its Constitution

nor consent to the doing of any in court;
I will not wittingly or willingly
promote or sue any groundless,
false or unlawful suit,
nor give aid nor consent to the same;
I will delay no man for money or malice,
and will conduct myself as a lawyer
according to the best of my knowledge
and discretion with all good fidelity
as well to the courts as to my clients;
and I impose upon myself this voluntary obligation
without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion.
So help me God.
