On Global Warming

I first heard about “Global Warming” way back in first year high-school. Back then, I had no idea about what Global Warming really is. Back then, my limited capability of understanding things could only grasp the idea that Global Warming is just a natural phenomenon every summer. I was dead-wrong!

“Is there really something wrong with the weather?”

Well, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research says: "When we observe global weather—the extremes in precipitation, floods, droughts, storms—and note its development, we can rightly say that these extremes have quadrupled over the last 50 years."

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and the oceans since the mid-twentieth century and its projected continuation is believed to be the result of an "enhanced greenhouse effect" mainly due to human-produced increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and changes in the use of land.

In other words, human activities are causing this worldwide phenomenon to go amok. Yes, humans are the ones to be blamed. Our planet Earth has been abused to the point that it can’t take anymore. Although this problem sounds too massive for an individual to take on, there is still something that we can do to help in our own ways. So what can we do in our own little way to help prevent Global Warming?

* Drive less. Take bikes, walk or carpool whenever possible.

* Unplug electronics when they are not in use, because they still take up energy. At the very least, turn items off when they’re not being used.

* Run the dishwasher and clothes washer only when you have a full load, and if available, use the energy-saving setting.

* Plant a tree.

* Use nontoxic cleaning products.

* I'd like to end my list here. But we still can do a lot more. Please make a research. (",)


Note: The following information was originally posted by Wilfred at his blogsite.

On the 28th of March 2009, at 8:30 in the evening (local time), everyone is encouraged to participate on the first international election between the Earth and global warming, through the Earth Hour.

Let's all grab this opportunity to take part in this international movement and cast our vote for the Earth by switching our lights off for an entire hour (that's only sixty minutes or three thousand six hundred seconds). Leaving your lights on means a vote for global warming. The goal for this year is to gather one (1) billion votes for the Earth, which will be presented to the world leaders in the upcoming Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. The official goverment policies to take action agaisnt global warming and the subsequent climate change that will be determined from this meeting will replace the Kyoto Protocol.

Earth Hour was initiated last 2007 in Sydney, and was participated by 2.2 million homes and businesses. A year later, in 2008, it had grown up into a global sustainability movement with up to 50 million people switching their lights off.

This year, Earth Hour 2009 is being taken to a new level, where every individuals, encompassing all races, from different countries, are encouraged to VOTE EARTH. Every one is being called up to take a stand and control over the future of our planet.

Let's all vote because every vote counts.

Again, VOTE EARTH by simply switching your lights off for one hour on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 PM local time, taking part in the global movement -- the Earth Hour.

Make a single flick at that switch, that's just it!

Should you wish to join, you can register by clicking on the "VOTE EARTH" ad in the sidebar.

PS: However, we all know that we have different circumstances. It may not be wise for some to totally turn off all their lights or their appliances. In my case, since we have a total of 6 electric flourescent lights in my house, I will make sure that at that very hour, 5 of them will be turned off and I will not turn my computer on. We all can make a difference in our own little way! Think about the future.

By the way, thank you Jeszieboy for inviting me to join EARTHHOUR 2009.

Does Our Handwriting Tell a Story?

Have you ever felt like you were cursed to carry a heavier-than-the-planet-Earth kind of responsibility that lasts a lifetime unless you do something about it like passing the curse to someone else? That’s the kind of feeling that I get every time someone got me tagged to do a task. Haha! Of course, I’m just exaggerating.

Anyways, for the third time, I got tagged to do something and that something involves writing something and take a picture of it and display it on my something… uhmm blog. At first, I was worried about accomplishing this tag because I never liked my handwriting. But if there’s one thing that this so-called blogosphere has ever taught me, that is to never turn a blogger-friend down especially if that blogger-friend is the ever gorgeous and beautiful Ms. Winkie. Yes, it’s her again for the second time, she got me tagged. I just realized I’m her favorite when it comes to "cursing" err tagging a blogger-friend. But that’s okay, at least that means she acknowledges my existence as a blogger.

And so as I was doing the task, I was wondering who started this kind of tag-game so I could ask him/her what really the purpose of this tag-game is. Is there a moral lesson that one can get out of this game? And then I realized just like any other tag-game, maybe (just maybe) this can strengthen the “bond” or develop friendship among the bloggers.

In what way? Well, Aristotle once said, “Handwriting is the visible form of speech.” In other words, our handwriting can tell a lot about our character as an individual.

"When you pick up a pen and begin to write, everything that ever happened to you coalesces and travels down the nerves from your brain, through your arm, into your hand and out onto the paper in the flow of ink from your pen," wrote graphologist Sheila Lowe in her book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Handwriting Analysis,". (O ayan, may libreng plugging pa…^_^)

In fact, graphologists also believe in the connection between handwriting and personality. And since I am not good at describing myself, I think showing my handwriting to you guys is one way of telling a little bit more about myself. (Naks! As if you would care to know more about me. Haha!!)

So without further ado, here are the rules of the tag:

1. Write down who tagged you.
2. Answer these:
- your name / username / pseudo
- right-handed or left-handed?
- your favorite letters to write?
- your least favorite letters to write?
- Write “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
3. Tag five persons.

Pardon my penmanship guys!

Yes Dencios, Lovely (of AnakngPating), Bluguy, Zyra and Payatot (of Lahat dito Chubby)! I got you tagged. Heheh!! You have to get it done within this week or else something "bad" will happen to you. Just kidding! It's up to you guys, this is not compulsory but we'd love to see your handwritings.

By the way, I took this "What Does Your Handwriting Say About You" quiz. And this is the result.

Your Handwriting Says You Are Somewhat Traditional

You are a fairly energetic person. You know how do pace yourself, and you deal well with stress.

You are very extroverted and outgoing. You are loving, friendly, and supportive. However, you are also manipulative and controlling at times.

You are balanced and grounded. You know how to get along well with others.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a decent communicator. You eventually get your point across, but sometimes you leave things a bit ambiguous.

Girls are very unpredictable. Maybe that's why they are often times associated with cats. Like cats, girls can be sweet now, mad later! Sometimes they enjoy being touched or stroked but sometimes they scratch you when you do that. Oh, typical girls are just so confusing.

Once again, girls are just so unpredictable. Just like the following girls below. Do you know what they all are doing ???

If not, then scroll-down to find out.













They are all about to sneeze!!!!!!


What were you thinking?!

Do You Believe That God Exist?

Note: This is just another forwarded e-mail I received yesterday from an office mate.


An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has
with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD Good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student : Yes.
Professor : My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent )

Professor : You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?

Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
Student : From . . . GOD . .
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer)

Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who Created them ?

(Student had no answer)

Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student : No , sir.
Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor : Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat.
But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that.

There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold.
Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . .

But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.
You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.

Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.

To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.
Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )

Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor. Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir?

Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class was in Uproar )

Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke out into Laughter )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . .

No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir.
With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor : I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.


I believe you have enjoyed the Conversation . . . and if so ..
You'll probably want your Friends / Colleagues to enjoy the same . . . won't you?
Forward them to Increase their Knowledge . . . or FAITH.


It was Albert Einstein.

Tagged Once Again

Another tagging-game na laganap ngayon sa mundo ng blogasperyo ang tumama sa'kin.

This time it’s from a beautiful and gorgeous
Ms. Winkie. I was hesitant to respond to this tagging game because for some reasons I was thinking of closing this blog already. But because Ms. Winkie is just so irresistible and she has been so nice to me, I didn’t have the nerve and the strength to say “NO” to her.

So eto daw yung rule:

List the names that you are called by and name the people who call you by these names.

Okay eto na:


- This is my given name. Nung tinanong ko mama ko bakit eto name ko, sabi nya kasi daw ayaw nya ng mga names na tunog fancy katulad nung mga names na may Prince sa unahan. Ayaw din daw nyang bigyan ng mahabang name mga anak niya kasi kawawa pag nagfifill-out ng forms, di kasya. Yung mom ko kasi mahaba yung name niya kaya ayaw nyang ma-experience namin yung inconvenience of having a very long name. Tulad pag may short quizzes, yung teacher nasa number 5 question na eh sya hindi pa tapos sa pagsulat ng name nya. Kaya ayun, perfect daw sya parati.. perfect numbering. ahaha!


- “Raymundo!! Bakit wala ka sa top 10 ngayong school-year?!!” hehe.. yan pag galit mama ko sa'kin.


- Palayaw ko nung maliit pa ko. Nung mag-elementary na’ko, wala ng tumatawag sa’kin nito kasi nagagalit ako. Peru, mga tiyo ko minsan eto pa'rin tawag nila sa'kin. Kainis, parang tunog paslit na siponin. heheh..


- Tawag sa'kin ng ibang tiyahin ko. May ka-officemate din akong yan ang tawag sa'kin. I prefer being called by this name.

Monding / Munding / Ding

- Tawag sa’kin ng mga officemates ko, kasi daw mukha pa daw akong bata (baby-face hehe!) nung nagsimula ako magtrabaho. Haha.. Sa precinto magpunta yung may reklamo. ;)

Mon / Monz

- Nickname ko dito sa blogosphere. Mon din ang kadalasang tawag sa'kin ng mga kalaro ko nun at classmates.


- Tawag sa’kin ng favorite teacher ko sa high-school. One blogger friend, Rye, also calls me by this name.

Monch Boi

- Screen name ko sa friendster. Para tunog bagets at astig. Para tunog teenager pa rin. LOL!


- Kasi daw kamukha ko si Bugoy of PDA. Haha! Nung una hindi ko alam pano magreact dito. Peru ok lang kasi favorite sya ng mom ko. At saka sabi ng mom ko, ako daw yung cuter version ni bugoy! Haha.. Oh walang papalag. Kung may reklamo, dun sa presinto! heheh. Hi Ms. Winkie, pahiram ng linya. ;)

O ayan napilitan pa tuloy ako maglagay ng pictures. O sigeh, kayo na humusga! haha!!

Eto pala yung favorite Acronym meaning ng name ko. Perfect description of me. hehe!

Haha! Nahanap nyo na ba ang pinakamalapit na presinto?

Anyways, sabi din pala sa rule, kelangan ipag-patuloy ang pag-tag. Hence, the following bloggers are tagged:


Heheh, Sorry guys tradition daw eh! ^_-

It's been a month since the last time I saw you. The last thing I heard about you is that you are currently dating someone. What can I say? Maybe, this is how this waiting game ends. We've finally reached this point. Somehow, I knew this is going to happen. But the optimist in me was hoping for something better. I've always believed that I couldn't welcome the thought of letting you go. But I realized I am better than that. Funny how it was hard for me to let go someone I never had. Funny how stupid I had been. Stupid, maybe I was. Optimistic, I know I am. I am not going to weep anymore. I've done that already through out this stupid game. Maybe, I deserve someone better. Or maybe you deserve someone better than me. I wish you all the best. I really do.


Thank you for texting me last Sunday that "Maybe we are better off as friends."


I did feel bitter for a time. But now, more than anything, I feel relieved and free.

Life is beautiful. Life is fun.

Speaking of fun, thank God for this video. It made my day.

Thank you to Alan Becker, the animator.
