Early months

January, the beginning month of the year where resolutions starts and some broke it even before the month ends. And before this month ends, birthday greetings to all who were born on January! May you have more bottles to pop up and more candles to blow!

In school records you will be the oldest if you were born this month or February. You will be teased by your classmates as manong or manang. That’s why some are complaining why they’re being born on the earliest months as what they say they easily get old.

Even I who was born in March got annoyed during elementary years that I ended up hating my birth month. Why such that I add year so early? I am envious of those December borne then.

I could still remember one (a boy) of my classmates who leads teasing me being the oldest in class then I have known that he was born just a day ahead of me. (Good heavens, ang sarap sapakin ang mukha nyang saksakan ng kapal! Mas older pala siya, a day nga lang. At least he’s older pa rin than me.) Thankful I’ve done no trouble even though my teeth were clenching and fists are about to give a face bow. Funny I got my self composure. I was thinking now how I managed the situation.

Well that was just one of my irritating moments in my elementary and changes came over years. I love much my birth month now. And I don’t care if those people come to tease me again. I might give them already that spoiled face bow. Nah, just kidding! Peace!

Bye bye!

I felt sad when I heard the unexpected death of the Australian actor whom I used to like in the movie “A Knight’s Tale and The Patriot”. He acted well in both movies in different eye catching ways. Heath Ledger was 28 and far young to die. It was a tremendous thing, I felt sympathy for him.

Farewell all I can say, your movies will make your memories alive. May your soul now rest in peace.

Minding do’s and don’ts

Were you been cautious or conscious lately when you are eating, either on a fine dinning, in a special occasion, in a restaurant or on your usual meal? Well, here are some of the do’s and don’ts on table manners from Evelyn’s hint. But of course there are some considerations that may takes place.

Do place your napkin on your lap as soon as you sit down to the table.
Do ask for something to be passed to you if it’s more than an arm’s length away.
Do wait for everyone at the table to be served before you begin eating.
Do leave a utensil on the floor if you accidentally drop it when in a restaurant. Signal the server for a replacement.
Do leave your empty plates for the server to collect when in a restaurant. Do not stack them.

Don’t rearrange the table setting, even if the table has not been set properly.
Don’t butter a whole slice of bread or roll. Take off a small piece and butter only that bite.
Don’t leave your spoon in your cup after adding cream and sugar. Place the spoon on your saucer or on a paper napkin.
Don’t take food out of your mouth with your hand. If you need to remove food, use your fork and place the discarded food discreetly on the plate.
Don’t speak with mouths full.
Don’t blow on hot food. Wait for it to cool before eating.

And finally when you have finished your meal, set your knife and fork parallel to one another diagonally across your plate with the handles pointing to four o’clock.

There you go and you gotta just be yourself if what’s pleases you.

Welcome 2008

How’s everybody doing this year? Did you face the year right? Or welcome the new year frowning or with an ear-filled smile?

I have known that a lot welcomes the year with a no good health condition, some lost lives, and some give lives. Others might happy and some lonely.

For the believers surely the year was greeted with faith and hope. For the achievers you might be working tightly on your goals again. For the losers try playing the game again and make sure to win this time.

As of me, last year was a good one for me. Although it was a struggling year, it was victorious somehow. And for this year of the rat welcomes me with a cold weather. My allergic nose getting worse and my head got affected due to the super coldness. It’s really cold out here. So far I never get sick here yet, only home sick. (wink!) Thankful I am still kicking here which is a good start for ’08.

On what way we may face the year, I join you with good faith, hopeful mind and a prayerful heart. Have a peaceful, fruitful and successful 2008 everyone! Take care too.
