Re: Importance of Sleep

I’m checking my email inbox after few days I haven’t logged to see if there’s something surprising.(hopeful!) There, numerous of junk mails from unknown persons that’s why I’d like considering setting spam on. There’s lot of mail from friends too. So I decided to read one because I’m half interested by the subject. And when I reached the bottom I was amused because suddenly the content turns different from above. Don’t have any idea if my friend is making fun again or either serious of it. As I was musing, I may never have enough experience but wasn’t born yesterday to come up with mixed ideas.(haha) Here’s how it goes.

A man can go two weeks without eating. But if he doesn't rest at all, he can only survive for one week. Sleeping provides us the time to rest our internal organs, eyes and the mind. Poor sleep quality can cause internal damage to our internal organs and brains. Therefore, sleeping is very important to us. If you wish to have a long life and stay healthy, please take note of the advice below.

5 DON'TS when you are sleeping


Watches can emit a certain level of radioactivity. Though small, but if you wear your watch to bed for a long time, it might have adverse effects on your health.


Scientists in America have discovered those that wear bras for more
than 12 hours have a higher risk of getting breast cancer. So go to bed without it. (suggestion only)


Putting the phone beside your bed or anywhere near you is not
encouraged. Though some of us will use phones as alarm clocks, but please put the phone as far as possible. Scientists have proved that electrical items including mobile phone and television sets emit magnetic waves when used. These waves can cause disruptions to our nervous system. Therefore if you need to put your mobile phone near you, switch it off first.


People who sleep with make up might have skin problems in the long run. Sleeping with make up will cause the skin to have difficulty in
breathing and problem in perspiring. You will also need a much longer time to go into deep sleep.


You may never wake up again.

Alongside Chico River

I grew up as a typical kid in a family where Chico River is approximately 150 meters away from the foundation of our house. We spent a lot of childhood memories in here. In the riverside we used to play kite flying, hide and seek, and running among others. We also did rafting with my brothers, crossing back and forth to the other side of the river, without minding that any moment the owner of the raft will arrive for we used it without permission. I could still remember how funny it was because we don’t know how but we learned hard so far. We are here most of the summer days to swim, dive, play and build sand castles. We have family picnics alongside too in a shady big tree. The river has a plenty of fish and we are fondly catching some barely handed.

I am even drowned accidentally in the place where mermaids used to stay as according to hearsay. That every time I came to remember it, I’m being frightened of the thought “hadn’t I survived I am no longer around in this world of fantasy”.

As our house is overlooking the river, most days of the year I am seeing the calmness of the water and its sound became a mellow music to the ears. The water mostly stays clean, clear and greenish and refreshing to the eyes. Our beloved town is really benefited by the gift of this nature. It is used as water and food resources. As well, a source of sand and stones for building houses, other structures, stone masonry and especially the on-going Suyo-Cervantes National Road.

I remember during our elementary years, our teachers used to inform us that the river we have is a winner being the Cleanest River in Region I in many consecutive years and runner-up entire the country.

Its head water is found in Mountain Province, it flows down passes through Cervantes and Suyo before it finally joins the Amburayan River then out to China Sea.

This river is no arguably breathtaking. Staring to its smooth and rough waves, bends and flows, I gathered some strength and enliven me unfathomable. I find it captivating especially I’m partly nature lover.

Through this simple blog I’ve created in its name, it is one in many ways a manifestation of appreciation and gratitude. Giving back some love and care to the river that inspire me in some ways and let me believed no matter how rough life is, “like the living water though first cut is the deepest it never runs dry.”

Tonight I celebrate my love…

Who wouldn’t love Beauty and Beast? They are the perfect figure of ”contentment is found in goodness”.

Journeying in a shortly cheerful, wondrous, and fortunate yet hanging, indifferent, vague, and blurry years my heart still wants to celebrate and sing tonight. Though mine may not like a fairy tale which always had a happy ending no matter I hardly wish upon the star.

So I sing..

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
It seems the natural thing to do

Tonight no one's gonna find us
We'll leave the world behind us
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And hope that deep inside you'll feel it too

Tonight our spirits will be climbing
To a sky filled up with diamonds
When I make love to you, tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight sun is gonna come shining through

Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do, is to get close to you, tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And soon this old world will seem brand new

Tonight we will both discover how friends turn into lovers
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And the midnight sun is gonna come shining through

Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do, is to get close to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you

…as love is…

“Young love is about wanting to be happy. Old love is about wanting someone else to be happy.” - Dr. Mary Pipher, PhD

-Young as maybe but so purest, sweet, innocent and fragile

-It may show possessiveness but reflects truest amongst

-Seemingly selfish but never keep you stay whenever you’re no longer happy

-It can let you go even if it cause lifetime grieving

-Always loves to see you safe and happy in a distance

Walk away. Don’t turn around now for you may see me crying….

Good morning turns mourning

One sunny morning sometimes midweek of June a grandma greeted me with no fake a smile in her face and asked how my country has been doing. I answered back all is well with me and I’m hoping my country does the same.

I stretched out the devastation caused by the cyclone that hits Myanmar, the deadly earthquake which damaged Sichuan province of China leaving millions of people homeless with just an approximately 10 days apart of occurrence. Another earthquake follows on June 15 somewhere in northern Japan that caused landslides which buried another life to death. With emphasis and worry I add that those countries including Philippines are in close regions so most expectedly either one of the disaster will hit the country too.

After few days she approached me with sympathy regarding the news a typhoon landed in the Philippine Islands causing ferry to sunken, massive flooding, mudslides and more. With consolation she ended what we can do when natural phenomena occur. Yes what can we do I uttered.

The aftermath of it many people lost lives and shelter, farm crops were damaged and some infrastructures ruined giving the country another unbearable burden. I’m saddened and crushed with the news I did watch too.

The more that I’m lonely when I have known that our beloved President GMA insisted of meeting President Bush even though she know that a certain powerful typhoon was heading the country. She would rather please world leaders than her own people. President Bush would have understood had she cancelled the trip. I am even mourning when the presidential entourage as according to Val Abelgas includes contingent of her entire family, 10 cabinet members, two senators and 59 congressmen – would cost the people millions of dollars at a time when they are already wallowing in poverty. It is not that I’m not favorable with traveling but at times of crisis, people’s need and security should be the first priority. With that kind of entourage doubt will surely arise. Pleasure or business? I don’t think President Bush needs all the people in that trip.

Had only our government would sensible enough to see how its people living in hardship. If only wise enough to consider its citizens be benefited from what they worked for, not only just satisfying themselves from their own interest. How many more millions of people’s money would spend in extravagant travels? Do you need to impress the whole world when they all know the human violations you have been accused for?
