Helpful Earthquake Survival Tips You Can Use

It is very important for you to be prepared whenever there happens to be an earthquake. Of course, you want to save yourselves out of the dangers that can be brought about by this natural calamity. In order for you to be safe, you just have to remember a few pointers when it comes to an earthquake. Posted on

Never just evacuate a building. Unless there is an immediate hazard in the area, never just evacuate the building. You have to keep in mind that you must move away from hazardous material containers to avoid possible dangers.

What should be done during the shaking?

An earthquake occurs while indoors:
If you are inside your house, office, or any establishment, it is best for you to stay inside. There are three basic actions that you must do: duck, cover, and hold on. Never be near glass, windows, file cabinets, overhead fixtures, or bookcase that could collapse on you during the shaking. It is suggested to crawl under a table, a desk, or any solid structure. Face away from the exterior walls and crouch before a heavy equipment. Your hands and arms must be covering your head.

An earthquake occurs while outdoors:
If you are outdoors, stay away from high walls, power lines, building and heavy materials for they could fall over you. Never enter a building during the earthquake. To get away from any form of hazards, move to an open space.

An earthquake occurs while in a moving vehicle:
Do not stop under or immediate to a building, utility wires, overpasses, power lines, undermined roadways, and falling building debris. Drive slowly toward a clear area. Do not leave your car until the earthquake stops. 

What should be done after the shaking?
Once you calmly left the building you were in during the shaking, check yourself for any injuries. Care for other people who might be injured or trapped. If there are injured or trapped individuals whom you cannot lend first aid to, it is best not to move them. Wait or call for medical assistance.

You can minimize the hazard of fire by means of using the nearest available resource. If there are small fires, look for a fire extinguisher and extinguish the fire.

Also, since the shaking could have caused shifting of contents on cabinets and closets, it is recommended to open all cabinets and closets so that the contents would not fall without caution to you.

Do not smoke inside any building. Fires can be triggered when smoking is done inside a confined area.
Aftershocks are normal after an earthquake. If there happens to be one after another, remember the three actions that must be done: duck, cover, and hold on.

Remember to stay away from any hazardous materials especially electrical equipments that must not be used until proper evaluation. 

Check the condition of your family and colleagues who are with you during the earthquake. If there is anyone injured, bring him immediately to the nearest hospital for medical attention.

How to Stay Healthy Even When Working in Shifting Schedules

Working in a call center company means working in shifting schedules. Most of the time, the work schedule is always at night. And that means your biological clock will be altered and may result to some serious health conditions. Posted on

Based on some studies more and more call center agents are having weight problems. In fact, the number of obese call center agents are getting higher. 

But it does not mean you can't stay fit and healthy even working in shifting schedules. It is just a matter of making adjustments.

Let me share some tips on how to stay healthy even when you're working on a graveyard shift. *Graveyard shift is any non-standard work schedule in which hours are commonly or always rendered outside the period between 7AM and 6PM.

Tip #1. Always have a good sleep. Make sleep a priority. An uninterrupted 7-8 hours sleep is advisable. To have a good sleep, it is helpful to try simulating night-time sleeping conditions. Make the room temperature colder and make the room darker. What I personally do, I ask my mom to use dark colored curtains in my room's window to make my work darker.

Tip #2. Eat right. The digestive system slows down at night that is why night workers should eat light during shift and just eat moderate breakfast. Eat slowly and relax during meals, allow time for digestion. Drink lots of water.

Manny Pacquiao and National Disasters?

Hi there,

Today is March 27, 2010. So what's up with the date?
It's the 13th day from the Pacquiao-Clottey fight which happened on March 14, 2010.
posted on

I got an e-mail regarding how Manny Pacquiao's fight is connected to some major incidents like the Massacre in Maguindano. Please check this out:

That surely is creepy, isn't it?

So I made a little research to check if those events mentioned above are correct with the goal of disproving it that these incidents has got nothing to do with Manny Pacquiao's victories. And since I've ran out of ideas to post here on my blog, I decided to post what I've found out here. >Monz Avenue blog.

Here's what I've found out:

Pacquiao VS Erik Morales
January 21, 2006 -Manny Pacquiao defeated Erik Morales by TKO at the 10 round.

13 Days after: Wowowee Stampede or also known as the ULTRA Stampede killed 78 people and injured about 400. About 30,000 people had been gathered outside the stadium waiting to participate in the first anniversary episode of the television variety show Wowowee. Get your Manny Pacquiao Pound 4 Pound Men's Tee on

  • Okay for this one, the dates are accurate. But come one why would you blame it on Manny. He was not there on Wowowee. 

Pacquiao VS Larios: July 2, 2006
 - Pacquiao successfully defended his WBC International super featherweight title against Óscar Larios, a two-time super bantamweight champion, who had moved up two weight divisions in order to challenge Pacquiao. Pacquiao won the fight via unanimous decision, knocking down Larios two times during the twelve round bout, which was held at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines.

13 Days after: Mayon Volcano started showing signs of a nearing explosive eruption. Mayon erupted from July to October 2006, with no apparent loss of life during the actual eruption period.
  •   Okay this one not so accurate as according to Wikipedia, Mayon Volcano started showing of volcanic activity on July 18.

Pacquiao VS Marco Antonio Barrera: October 06, 2007
 - Pacquiao defeated Barrera in their rematch via an easy unanimous decision. In the eleventh round, Pacquiao's punch caused a deep cut below Barrera's right eye. Get your Marco Antonio Barrera's poster.

13 Days after: The 2007 Glorietta explosion occurred in the Glorietta 2 section of the Glorietta shopping complex at Ayala Center in Makati, Metropolitan Manila, in the Philippines on October 19, 2007 at around 1:25 PM PST. Initial reports indicated that the explosion originated from an LPG tank explosion in an in-mall restaurant.However, authorities were (as of yet) unable to confirm the true nature or source of the explosion. The blast has killed eleven persons and injured more than 100.

  • Okay, the dates are accurate, but then again there's no apparent connection between that sad incident to Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao VS Juan Manuel Márquez
On March 15, 2008, in a rematch against Juan Manuel Márquez called "Unfinished Business", Pacquiao won via a disputed split decision. The fight was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. With victory, Pacquiao won the WBC and Ring Magazine super featherweight belts (as well as the lineal junior lightweight title), making him the first Filipino to win three major world titles in three different weight divisions (Pacquiao was a former WBC flyweight champion and former IBF super bantamweight champion).

13 days after: Some national governments began restricting exports of rice and some retailers began rationing sales, due to fears of insufficient global supplies of the grain, thus becoming another key aspect to the 2007–2008 world food price crisis.

Pacquiao VS Miguel Cotto:
 - On November 14, 2009, Pacquiao defeated Miguel Cotto via technical knockout in the twelfth round, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, in a fight billed as "Firepower".

13 Days after: The Maguindanao massacre, also known as the Ampatuan massacre (after the town where the mass graves were found), occurred on the morning of November 23, 2009, in the town of Ampatuan in Maguindanao province, on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The victims were about to file a certificate of candidacy for Esmael Mangudadatu, vice mayor of Buluan town. Mangudadatu was challenging Datu Unsay mayor Andal Ampatuan, Jr., son of the incumbent Maguindanao governor Andal Ampatuan, Sr., in the forthcoming Maguindanao gubernatorial election, part of the national elections in 2010. The 57 people killed included Mangudadatu's wife, his two sisters, journalists, lawyers, aides, and motorists who were witnesses or were mistakenly identified as part of the convoy.

Okay Yesterday, March 27, was the 13th day from the Pacquiao-Clottey fight in which Manny won again.

Was there any major disaster that happened yesterday? So far, haven't heard any, hence, I'd say perhaps the curse has stopped there. LOL

Disclaimer: Please don't be hard on me, I'm not saying Manny Pacquiao is the culprit of all those disasters. Let's not blame it on Pacquiao. I understand that all these are just plain coincidence.

Bottom line is, let's not be superstitious and don't blame it on Manny Pacquiao. ^_^
Peace y'all.

How to Make an Aquarium

Hi, whatzup! ^^

I had four days off from work last week from Sunday to Wednesday. It's because I had 2 days vacation leave from work and two rest days. Sunday was our family day slash worship day. On Monday we went to Aqua Cainta - a pool resort nearby. On Tuesday I got bored. So I decided to buy a fish as a pet.

I've always been interested with ornamental fishes. When I was a kid, I used to buy gold fish from a near by pet shop but it always end up dead the next day or next week. It's because I didn't know how to take care of it back then.

So again, I bought 3 red-capped gold fishes, an 8 x 12 x 6 small aquarium and some aquatic plants.

... and of course some pebbles to deceive the fishes. Aquatic plants shown above are being sold for only P5.

... aren't they lovely? ^^
There ye go fish! Please my babies go ye and multiply. LOL

Hmm... I'm thinking of giving them names. What do you think would be good names for them?

Let's Go Island Hopping Again!

Last Monday we went to Aqua Cainta, a pool resort located 15 minutes away from home. Tamang-tama sobrang init na kasi. I can't even remember when was the last time it rained.

So we went to Aqua Cainta. We were a group of 7 young peeople. The entrance fee was only P60 per head and P40 for kids below 12 years old. Aqua Cainta has 2 pools- one for adults (up to 5'8" in depth) and one for children (3.3 ft). Actually it was the Nth time I went there. I went there several times already. We even had our Team Building wayback year 2008 with my previous co-workers at my previous company. Sometimes I go there alone at 8am in the morning during my rest days. But that time, I was with my friends. It was a lot fun, really.

They have two kinds of cottages. Open cottage which costs Php 200. Family cottages cost Php 350. These ones offer a little privacy with two attached double-deck beds.

It was not an expensive getaway, but we had great fun. My next plan is to go Island Hopping!

Why Buying Used Car is Practical

I've always fancied buying a car for myself. And since I am still at the process of learning how to drive, I might as well buy a used car. I was researching about whether or not this would be a good idea and I learned that there are advantages of buying used cars.

First off, the price difference between new and used cars is so wide. According to my research, the average cost, before taxes and fees, on a new car in 2009 was about $26,000 (that's about Php 1.2 M) while the average used car transaction was about $8,400 (that's about Php 0.3 M). And since I am not yet an expert at driving and not to mention I am on a tight budget, buying a used car would be a very good start for me.

So at the moment I am kind of in a quandary on which one should I get for myself. I am currently looking at used ford cars, used volkswagen cars or used bmw car. Hmm, I wonder which one would be best for me.

I'd like to say thank you to for sponsoring this blog post.
Note: I got the photo of that car above here.
