…One day God had work for me to do. He showed me a rock and told me to push it with all my might. For many years, I pushed and pushed but nothing happened. The rock hasn’t moved an inch. In discouragement, I asked God why I am failing.

The Lord responded,” Your task is to push the rock. Never did I mention that you move it. Now, I, my child will move the rock”…Obedience to God is easy if we only know how to listen. He doesn’t want us to suffer, He only wants us to LEARN.

I’m still Sober..

Sober
-Kelly Clarkson



And I don’t know
This could break my heart or save me
Nothing’s real
Until you let go completely
So here I go with all my thoughts I’ve been saving
So here I go with all my fears weighing on me

Three months and I’m still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers
But I know it’s never really over

And I don’t know
I could crash and burn but maybe
At the end of this road I might catch a glimpse of me
So I won’t worry about my timing, I want to get it right
No comparing, second guessing, no not this time

Three months and I’m still breathing
Been a long road since those hands I left my tears in but I know
It’s never really over, no

Wake up

Three months and I’m still standing here
Three months and I’m getting better yeah
Three months and I still am

Three months and it’s still harder now
Three months I’ve been living here without you now
Three months yeah
Three months I hurt

Three months and I’m still breathing
Three months and I still remember it
Three months and I wake up

Three months and I’m still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

A Golden Controversy


Golden Compass Stirs Up Searches

The Web has made it a lot easier to convey outrage. Witness the controversy (and buzz) surrounding "The Golden Compass" a new children's film starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. The anger stems from the belief that the film is anti-religion and pro-atheism. Some folks plan to boycott the film as a sign of protest. Ironically, searches on "atheism" and "define atheism" have both spiked in response to their efforts.

Clearly, people are hearing the message, but not in the way the protestors had hoped. So, will the boycott hurt or help the film's performance? Searches on "the golden compass" are up 50% this past week and queries on "golden compass controversy" have experienced a similar surge. Some people are looking forward to the flick while others are looking forward to convincing folks to stay home. Let's see who will win. - yahoobuzz

anyways for those who haven't seen the movie and it's trailer, here's the trailer of the said movie:

Best Grammar in Town...


siryus ito..... dahan-dahan at baka ka .,....

We' ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma
mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it's
only now that I gave him a second look. I realized that beauty is in
the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala
siya. And then, he came over with me. He said, "I hope you don't
mine. Can I get your number?" Nag-worry ako. What if he doesn't give
it back? He explained naman na it's so we could keep intact daw. Sabi
ko, connect me if i'm wrong but are you asking me ouch? Nabigla siya.


Sagot niya, The! Aba! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!!
Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.

Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a
blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of his feelings, we'll go ouch
na rin. Now, we're so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks
God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I'm 33 na and I'm running our time.
After 2 weeks, he plopped the question. "Will you marriage me?" I'm
in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it's four!
This is true good to be true. So siyempre, I said yes. Love is a many
splendor.

Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces.
Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may
babaeng humirit ng, "Well, well, well. Look do we have here." What
the fuss! The nerd ng babaeng yon! She said they were still on. So I
told her, whatever is that, cut me some slacks! I didn't want this to
get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. She accused me of
steeling her boyfriend. Ats if! I don't want to portrait the role of
the other woman. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told her, "please,
mine you own business!" Who would believe her anyway?

Dahil it's not my problem anymore but her problem anymore, tumigil na
rin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I'm so
happy. Even my boyfriend said liketwice. He's so supportive. Sabi
niya, "Look at is this way. She's our of our lives."

Kaya advise ko sa inyo - take the risk. You can never can tell. Just
burn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a
mistake, we'll just pray for the internal and external repose of your
soul. I second emotion.

True Story

I received a mail from a friend and i thought that this would be a good information that i must share to you guys...

(True story)

hindi ko na sana ikukwento kasi akala ko aksidente lang.....


AKALA KO AKO LANG!...UNG PALA MERON PANG IBA NA MABIBIKTIMA NG GANITONG SISTEMA...PAANO NA KUNG UN LANG ANG NATITIRA MONG PERA AT MALAYO PA ANG PUPUNTAHAN MO...kawawa ka naman....maglalakad ka....

(based on my own experience sa isang aircon bus....)


last september 6, 2007, 4pm ako ay nagpunta sa cubao at bumili ng ticket (going to baguio) sa victory liner cubao. sumakay ako ng aircon bus from victory liner (cubao) to robinsons galleria (going back sa office in ortigas)


...ang pamasahe po ay P10 from cubao to robinsons galleria... at ako po ay nagbigay ng P100 sa kundoktor...binigyan nya ako ng ticket worth P10 at kinuha ung 100pesos na binayad ko, sabay sabi na sandali lang wala akong baryang panukli. So, pagdating sa may P Tuazon (near araneta center)...pina alala ko uli ung sukli ko sa konduktor...tinanong nya ako, "san ka nga uli baba'?." sumagot ako na..."sa may robinsons galleria lang!"......."malayo ka pa naman eh...sandali lang"...sabi ng kundoktor



so, pagdating ! ng VV S oliven... lumipat ako ng upuan (3rows before the driver , at the right side of the bus). Pagdating ng SEC (near ortigas ave.) kinukuha ko na ung sukli ko...hindi kumibo ang kundoktor...(luminga-linga lang) parang deadma ba?....


Nang patawid na ng ortigas ave. (stoplight)...tumayo ako at nilapitan ko ung konduktor na naka upo sa tabi nung driver...hiningi ko ung sukli ko...


eto ang sabi nya sa'kin..."PATINGIN NGA NG TICKET! MO?.,. .. sabay inabot ko...



sabi ng kundoktor..."Eh WALA NAMAN AKONG SINULAT (note) SA LIKOD NG TICKET MO ..TAPOS HIHINGI KA NG SUKLI!!!.... TARANTADO KA PALA EH... medyo mag init ang ulo ko sa sinabi nya... kaya sumagot ako... na ..TARANTADO KA RIN!!!...KANINA KO PA SINASABI NA ...UNG SUKLI KO SA P100 NA BINIGAY KO...


dun na kami nagkasagutan....at may dumikit sa akin na lalaki at sinabihan ako na ...."PRE,,WALA KA NAMAN INAAB! OT NA ' SAN DAANG PISO eH...TAPOS HIHINGI KA NG SUKLI!!!..


tumayo ako malapit sa pinto..malapit sa driver...at sinabi ko ung ginawa nung kundoktor nya....



eto ang sabi nung driver.... 'ABA..PARE...HINDI KO ALAM YAN...BAKA NAMAN WALA KA TALAGANG BINIBIGAY NA P100 DUN SA KUNDOKTOR KO...(sa pagkakataong ung...tatlo na ang nakikipagtalo sa akin... ung kondukto,.,,ung driver at ung isang lalaki na nakaupo sa may likuran ng driver...



Sabi ko sa sarili ko...agrabyado ako pag nakagulo...kaya sinabihan ko ung driver na...baba na ako. ..sabi ko..."BUKSAN MO UNG PINTO...BABABA NA AKO..LAMLAMPAS AKO. HINDI AKO MAKIKIPAG BASAGAN NG MUKHA SA INYO SA HALAGANG P90 PESOS (sukli)...SA INYO NA LANG UNG SUKLI KO...(sa pagkakataong ung, ...ung bus ay nakahinto sa may tawiran sa harap ng POEA...pero hindi nya binubuksan ung pinto...hanggan sa umarangkada na uli ung bus..)


!
Sa may tapat ako ng DOLMAR BLDG (fronting POVEDA near Ortigas MRT Station) ako ibinaba...na kung saan eh..wala ng mga traffic aide na mapagsusumbongan ng kalokohan hila...


So...after one month...nakalimutan ko na ung nangyari....


Last October 30, 2007 (Tuesday) around 6:15pm...pauwi na ako galing ortigas going to makati (guadalupe tulay)...


May isang babae na kasakay ko sa bus....na nagrereklamo sa kundoktor at driver....na hindi rin binibigay ung sukli.

Sya daw ay galing sa may Timog ...sya ay baba sa may Boni....



Naalala ko ung nagyari sa'kin ...nang biglang may "LALAKI" na tumayo sa may kabilang upuan at sinabihan ung 'BABAE" na ...

"MISS...MISS...SINGKWENTA PESOS LANG UNG BINIGAY MO SA KUNDOKTOR...KITANG KITANG KO"....


Sa galit nung babae...akmang baba na sa may tapat! ng 'Jo llibee Boni"...nang biglang isinara nung driver ung pinto....at tsaka pinatakbo na matulin ung bus...hanggan sa makarating sa may tapat ng "PUGON"...(bilihan ng tinapay malapit na sa tulay)....


Dun ko na pag tanto ung nang yari sa'kin...parehong-pareho ng ginawa dun sa babae...


Bago ako...bumaba sa may Guadalupe tulay (Loyola)...tiningnan ko ung driver,,,ung kundoktor at ung "LALAKI" na kumatig dun sa kundoktor....
!

Magkaka-kilala pala sila....at nagtatawanan pa...


Akala ko ako lang ang nakapansin sa nangyari...


pag sakay ko ng jeep papuntang DELPAN....may "MAMA" na bum! ati sa akin...sabi nya..."PARE, KALA KO KANINA...TUTULUNGAN MO UNG BABAE...un hindi sinuklian?... "KASI NAKITA KO UNG MGA KA-KONTSABA NUNG DRIVER AT NUNG KONDUKTOR....UNG ISA...HINDI NAGSALITA PERO LUMAPIT SA MAY LIKOD MO....KAYA AKO...LUMIPAT DIN AKO ...KASI TWO YEARS AGO...NAKA EXPERIENCE AKO NANG GANYAN SA MAY BALINTAWAK...SINAKSAK UNG ISANG PASAHERO...KAWAWA NAMAN...GANYAN ANG MODUS OPERANDI NILA SA BUS....KAYA NGA PAG SUMASAKAY AKO NG BUS...PALAGI AKONG MAY DALANG BARYANG PANG BAYAD...


so samakatuwid...hindi lang pala holdaper at snatcher ang titinang mo sa bus....kawawa naman tayo...parehang kung mamuhay....paano na tayo...????


Sa inyong lahat...lagi po sana tayong mag iingat....


Salamat po.

Arachibutyrophobia

On our English workshop a while ago, unfamiliar words was introduced and Arachibutyrophobia was one of those words that stucked on our minds, i went home and further research about this word/condition.

What is Arachibutyrophobia?

Defined as "a persistent, abnormal, and unwarranted fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth", each year this surprisingly common phobia causes countless people needless distress.

To add insult to an already distressing condition, most arachibutyrophobia therapies take months or years and sometimes even require the patient to be exposed repeatedly to their fear. We believe that not only is this totally unnecessary, it will often make the condition worse. And it is particularly cruel as arachibutyrophobia can be eliminated with the right methods and just 24 hours of commitment by the phobic individual.

Known by a number of names - Arachibutyrophobia and Fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the Roof of the Mouth being the most common - the problem often significantly impacts the quality of life. It can cause panic attacks and keep people apart from loved ones and business associates. Symptoms typically include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and overall feelings of dread, although everyone experiences arachibutyrophobia in their own way and may have different symptoms.


What is the cause of Arachibutyrophobia?

Like all fears and phobias, arachibutyrophobia is created by the unconscious mind as a protective mechanism. At some point in your past, there was likely an event linking peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth and emotional trauma. Whilst the original catalyst may have been a real-life scare of some kind, the condition can also be triggered by myriad, benign events like movies, TV, or perhaps seeing someone else experience trauma.

But so long as the negative association is powerful enough, the unconscious mind thinks: "Ahh, this whole thing is very dangerous. How do I keep myself from getting in this kind of situation again? I know, I'll attach terrible feelings to peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth, that way I'll steer clear in future and so be safe." Just like that arachibutyrophobia is born. Attaching emotions to situations is one of the primary ways that humans learn. Sometimes we just get the wiring wrong.

The Great Wheel of China


BEIJING (Reuters) - You've climbed the
Great Wall of China, now Beijing wants you to "fly" the Great Wheel of China. Higher than both the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer, which opens in March, the Beijing Great Wheel will tower 208 metres (682 ft) when finished in 2009, executives said on Monday, which would make it the highest and largest in the world.

The giant ferris wheel will have 48 air conditioned observation capsules, each of which can carry up to 40 passengers, and on a good day even the Great Wall is expected to be visible in the mountains to Beijing's north.

"The wheel itself is a nice add-on to the city. It's a new icon for the city," Great Wheel Corp Chief Executive Officer Stephan Matter told Reuters ahead of the ground-breaking ceremony.

The wheel will stand in eastern Beijing's Chaoyang Park, where beach volleyball events will take place at next year's Olympics, and have far greater capacity than the London Eye, Matter said.

"The capsule in London caters for 25. Ours will cater for 40 people. It's like a little bus. It's 18 tonnes heavy. It's like your living room," he added.

Costing a total of around 200 million euros (139 million pounds), tickets will go for about 100 yuan (6 pounds) a head, Matter said, though final prices have yet to be decided.

"The Beijing one will be very affordable," he added.

The experience will be like flying, said chairman Florian Bollen, whose company is also involved in the Singapore wheel.

"It will allow the people of Beijing to rise up and see the city from a completely new perspective," he said. "It is a flight." - yahoonews

Say Hello to Snuppy...

A MAN'S best friend has joined the long list of animals that have been cloned in the laboratory.
But the scientists behind the world's first cloned dog have warned that the procedure is too dangerous to create carbon copies of favourite pets.


Snuppy, short for Seoul National University puppy, initially stirred admiration among scientists as dogs are among the trickiest of animals to clone.
The dog, grown from a single cell taken from the ear of a 3-y
ear-old male Afghan, marks a milestone in the race to fabricate genetically identical dogs for research and as companion animals.

Since the anouncement of Dolly the sheep in 1997 scientists have cloned many different species, including mice, rats, cows, pigs, rabbits, cats, a mule, horses and a gaur - an endangered ox.

However, despite several attempts, a cloned dog has proved elusive because of the difficulty of maturing canine eggs in the artificial surroundings of a cloning laboratory.

Snuppy was born in April and was one of two cloned dog embryos to be delivered alive. The second, born in May, died of pneumonia three weeks after birth.

However, in total the scientists created 1,095 cloned embryos and implanted all them into the wombs of 123 canine surrogates.

Yet only three pregnancies were confirmed, one of which ended in a miscarriage.

Professor Ian Wilmut of Edinburgh University, who cloned Dolly the sheep, said that Professor Hwang seems to have successfully overcome the technical problems of cloning dogs by using a source of high-quality eggs.
