How to Stay Young

Grabbed from Facebook and I want to share it here as they are simple reminders that is worth remembering:

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them’ ūüėČ

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, healthy cooking, good music, whatever. Never let the brain idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”

4. Learn to enjoy and appreciate the simple things

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. Be alive while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.

8. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to a next country; to a foreign country but NOT where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity, AND ALWAYS REMEBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breahs away.

11. Begin and end the day with God, and continue living His life for others.


Mt. Apo Climb on November

A group of workers here in the hospital are planning a Mt. Apo climb during the November 1 and 2 holidays (All Saints and All Souls days). ¬†Why those days? Because we have no work. ¬†One of them is trying to convince me to go, but I am skeptic of me going because I know I am not fit. ¬†I don’t like to be a problem to the group. ¬†Although the terrain is gradual, there is more to terrain that is to be hurdled during the climb and one of that is the weather.

Some of them have started their endurance training so I might join one of these days. ¬†One of the couples who are planning to go does not have a tent yet. ¬†So I will tell her tomorrow that ¬†nemo tents¬†are on sale and shipping to any location around the world is free as long as they order more than $75. ¬†If you don’t have a tent, too, check out their catalog because they are doing a clearance sale right now.

Tension Ring for a Tension-filled Life

It is my first time to hear about therapeutic rings.  So I am not very familiar with it.  When someone mentioned it, I told the person that I only knew about the therapeutic bracelet because many of my friends and even my mother purchased it as many will attest that it had a therapeutic effect on them.  If I had just money during those times, probably I have also picked one for myself.

Anyway, last Sunday was a friends wedding and I thought they would seal their vows with a ring even just at the reception area. But there was none.  So I guess they are not going to wear a wedding ring but later they can use a titanium tension ring when things gets tough at work and in marriage life.  I am not married (it seems like that) yet I thought of purchasing that tension ring.   I am still looking for positive reviews though.

A Quick Visit at the Hilltop

I would say quick because we arrived at the campus 12 midnight of Friday so that only left me Saturday to go around and take some pictures. ¬†Good thing we decided to go down after an early lunch so I had a short time to walk around some places that I haven’t had a glimpse since I left the portals of MVC many years ago.

The walk I did that Sunday morning filled me with nostalgia.  I was taking my time as I walked from Brgy Uno to the Guesthouse area, to the ramps going to the Cafeteria, then off my way to the fastfoods to buy the ever-missed famous stick bread.  From there, I decided to go back to Brgy Uno via Jamandre Village.

The walk made me see many improvements Рlike new buildings/houses and landscapes.  The site of old houses and buildings did not escape my sight, too.  There were still a handful of them and somehow, they will be renovated or at least they gonna build more new buildings and have those faculty relocated.

Anyway, I enjoyed my walk that morning.  Good thing the battery did not ran out of me.  Here are a few of my photos taken that Saturday morning on my way to the FKA.
