I choose to be unstoppable and bigger than my concern and worries, the strength of you inspire me daily which makes me trust my intuition and live a courages life with you.  The best feeling in the world is realizing that I am perfectly happy without the thing I thought I need. 


When the Tension Subside

It was a late Friday night when I arrived home being exhausted from the terrible traffic caused by undisciplined drivers in the metro highway. I was excited to meet my fiancé along with my surprise weekend getaway planned, however without my knowledge there was most disturbing news that I should know about him regarding on the status of his health.


He is working in a famous and reputable Bank; it is a practice and guidelines of the company to conduct annual physical examination to determine if the employees are still fit to work. By him undergoing this physical examination, X-Ray was not good and their Doctor advised him to see Radiologist to seek for a second opinion about the result. He did all of the things and according to the Radiologist based on the X-Ray result from the Company he might have Pulmonary Tuberculosis (can be treated within 6 months of taking medicine) but to be sure, they will perform and test again for diagnosis.

So basically, sadness outpouring all over his veins to the unofficial result instead of waiting the official one, he presumed that it is positive already.

When he told me about the matter, I got paranoid. I was not able to hug him or comfort him but instead act like very mad and asking why it happens. He don’t smoke, no vice – perfect, where this coming from? After all; I ask myself, where is my support? I actually should be the root of his inspiration, but on that time, I never was.

Imagine, immediately he separate all his things because it was advised by the Doctor it is very contagious, and since I was his partner, I should be check as well but I don’t submit myself for checking. I’m still in the process of accepting the fact but I shall allow my intuition to guide me along. I decline to inform him with my surprise weekend getaway due to the news; there is no spirit at all. It was just all of the sudden, we are not talking and doing things separately – it seems were doomed.

It was twelve hours – no sleep, no plan, no talking, and no questions – silence. I was thinking, when the result is positive (let us say), he is the breadwinner and supporting his family always, how could he continue doing that when is on leave? All it matters – no answers.

Early Sunday on our breakfast, we talked about the situation, planning and how we going life forward with this problem and also agreed to move our wedding date. So we get going, iron out differences and apologizing for our reactions. It’s kind of we accept the situation.  This was also the day that he will get the final result from the Radiologist technician and start his medication.

I was surprised that he didn’t call me and speak about the result but due to many things happen in between I almost forgot the pressure we are dealing. I always inculcate in my mind that life must goes on – move on forward. When he arrived, one thing I asked was how much is the medicine, he replied there is no medicine for this, so I asked, why, then replied with a smile because I don’t hat Pulmonary Tuberculosis, it was a mistake diagnosis. The X-Ray was clear and it was different compared to the first one.

 The tension subsides when I heard the good news it’s kind of “let’s call for a celebration”, we have been doomed for many hours but in the end there is no truth about it. We are so happy…smile…smile and laughter. Now, everything is well according to plan and I can’t wait to share my story here because this is how I express my feelings as well.

Conclusions are not always pleasant. If you follow reason far enough it always leads to conclusions that are contrary to reason. I don’t deny we sometimes draw the right conclusions, but don’t we just as often draw the wrong ones?

After all, Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.

The Best Option

Solved: Samsung Notebook Gray Screen Display

It was late Saturday afternoon (recently), I open my notebook because I was planning to finish my write-up regarding Climate Change however, after I key-in the password there 1 of 9 updates flashing on the screen automatically. So I waited for 15 minutes to successfully update then it boot.


Now the problem happened after the automatic update. I cannot go through because the operating system didn’t process. It appears only “Gray Screen” after asking for my correct password. I was not able to reach to the desktop.

Since, I don’t know what happen to the notebook, I called the guy who assists me when I buy the unit. He said maybe it is the software issue and suggests to bring it to the nearest Service Center. I felt so devastated because I only use it during weekend then suddenly get busted, oh come on!

My laptop is Samsung ATIV Book 2 and I bought it last July of 2013, so basically it’s less than 4 months.

I realized I have to call the Customer Service first so that they can advise me what to do with the unit. They forwarded my call to their technical support and I spoke with a lady. After relaying with the problem, below is the excerpt of our conversation:

Technical Support: “Sorry for the inconvenience but I think the update hindered the problem, perhaps it was Windows 8 point something causes the OS didn’t start up.”

Me: How come it happens?

Technical Support: “Microsoft are giving general updates, it is up to the end-user to click those updates, some are marked as important and others are optional. You should choose only the important update.”

Me: Now, this is the problem, I don’t have the chance to choose what those updates are because it seems it is set to automatic. That was the suggestion when I bought it.

Technical Support: “Now at least Ma’am you know the consequence, I will help you solve the problem. You power to push the power button while pressing F8 (Function Key)”

Me: Okay, then here we goes. I press the F8 but nothing happens, still no display.

Technical Support: “Okay, let’s try again, then press F2” (nothing happen)

Technical Support: “I’m sorry, kindly press F4…sorry I forgot”

Me: Are you sure about that? Do you think pressing power button again and again without properly shutting down don’t cause any harm to my hard disk?

Technical Support: “Don’t worry Ma’am it will not harm, I try to figure out what option I can give you since those keys didn’t work.”

Me: Well, can you tell me what are the function of those key so I can describe to you the response after pressing them because it has no effect.

Technical Support: Best is, you have to bring the unit to the Service Center. “F4 is for system recovery”.

Me: System Recovery? You mean, all my programs installed will be deleted including updates?

Technical Support: “Yes, that is the best feature of Samsung. You will be set to factory settings, so whatever you see on your first purchase of the unit is the same effect when you do a system recovery.

Me: Well my Office will be deleted? How about the Drive D, the partition, is it included?

Technical Support: “Yes, Microsoft Office will be deleted however the partition will remain. All files saved in the Drive D will not be deleted.

Me: Okay, I prefer the system recovery. “(End of the conversation)”

I thought the updated software will not be changed unless they can restore the system to the date before it was installed but perhaps it takes time so if I decided to do the System Recovery. Almost 30 minutes of recovery, the disadvantage is I don’t have Microsoft Office 2007.

I want to set the update into not automatic so that this case will not happen again but I cannot remember where in control panel I have to change. So I call customer service again then I ask them how to do it. This lady perhaps didn’t understand my question because she insists that update is very important so that the system will work based on what it is design. We have a big discussion about it but after all I did turn off the automatic update.

The bottom line is that every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution because it forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.

Relationships: It Takes Two to Tango

How much do you love your partner? How much do you willing to sacrifice? It’s time to pay more attention to this area of your life.

Whether you’re in a relationship already or you’re admiring someone from afar, sorting out your feelings can be a real challenge. While there’s no clear, fool-proof way to decipher your feelings for someone, there are certain ways to make the distinction clearer for yourself.


Strengthening a current relationship or getting into a new one requires learning from past mistakes and applying those lessons to present or future relationships. Study your patterns and get a “do-over.” Build a foundation of appreciation and respect. Focus on all the considerate things your partner says and does.

Happy couples make a point of noticing even small opportunities to say “thank you” to their partner, rather than focusing on mistakes their partner has made. The driving force of the sexual imperative bridges the gap between the almost incompatible brain styles of the two sexes. Lust can be seen as one end of a broad continuum, which may or may not culminate in romantic love.

Love and lust are inextricably intertwined. If his partner’s only in lust, she’ll use this against him, but if they’re both falling in love, this sexuality is a bond.

With a better understanding and insight into the way you interact and communicate with your significant other, you can create a strong, successful relationship.

The reason for two willing people came out to commit an infidelity relationship because they worked together. After all, it takes two to tango.

The Manifest of a Shallow Person

“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a metaphorical phrase that has learned since from grade school. You shouldn’t prejudge the worth or value of something, by its outward appearance alone. However, why there are people speak their mind and don’t care no matter what if it’ll rip-out the heart of others?

aShallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. There’s nothing wrong with being shallow as long as you’re insightful about it. It’s a shallow life that doesn’t give a person a few scars.

Only shallow person know themselves but mostly shallow people end-up nothing.  But think about it; shallow people have it so much better because they don’t understand the same things we feel so it doesn’t affect them even how awful feeling it is.

During my teenage years; I was tired of pretending that I was someone else just to get along with my classmates, just for the sake of having friendships, not to be bullied but to bully.

When learning the rope of being with them, I thought I was trapped in a cage and I can’t handle it in their way. I was lying to myself but still I know I would always learn from my mistakes. I learned that when am surrounded with them I find myself judging others – I didn’t consider that the inside is what counts!

But after all I did, I reap confidence away from it which I used it to fight them back whenever we’ve faced into trouble. Being brave is not enough not to be bullied but being confident to pretend being brave is great ammo to defeat the enemy and win the war.

If a person cannot understand the beauty of life, it is probably because life never understood the beauty in them and don’t judge the past by the standards of today because it won’t work – they’re incompatible.

The world only goes around by misunderstanding. Where misunderstanding serves others as an advantage, one is helpless to make oneself understood.

Think twice before you speak!


Clear Your Bladder Every Four Hours

A friend of mine forwarded me this information early today and I felt it was so very helpful informative. I thought it would be a good idea when I share this with my friends as well. Posting here is a great way of spreading this information of course.

Clear Bladder Every Four Hours!

When one is maintained regularly or for long periods can damage the bladder and kidney. When traveling, we should not continue when one needs the toilet. In fact, empty bladder every three to four hours.

ImageThe bladder is actually a muscle that sits near the kidney, these filters the blood and enter the urinary bladder with fluid and waste – so-called urine.

Bladder to an adult human can hold around 350-450 milliliters of urine. When urine contents rise to a certain level, the body reacts on how stretched my bladder has become and sends signals to the brain.

The brain responds by sending two signals back to the bladder. One says that the bladder neck to relax; while the other says that bladder muscle to draw up together in order to get the urine out. It’s time to find a toilet. The system lies under the will power, which means that we can keep us, though it is not suitable to pee right then.

produces a hormone which means that we look at less liquid when one asleep. The most imminent danger of not peeing when a need is that, one can get infections in the urinary bladder and roads.

The urethra is at any given time full of bacteria, which only host more and more, when a pee host these washed out. Host not urethra washed, the bacteria can spread out and can develop a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections can spread to other places if they are not treated with antibiotics.

Delay a lavatory often urinary bladder muscle vertebra limp and thin walled to always be stretched. When will the draw together not be as effective, and one does not get out all the urine when a pee.

peeWhen host the remnants left in the bladder, which increases the risk of infections. Bladder host filled up faster again, and one is maintained perhaps because a network has been in the toilet and then host the injury worse.

If one continues in the longer one can actually fill up my bladder so much, that it will never work again. Voluntary or involuntary, days without pee breaks are extremely harmful to the urinary bladder.

But there is hope. A dropped bladder can be trained again, when by going regularly to the toilet. When the bladder must work host muscle stronger. A strong urinary bladder is a good urinary bladder.

To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. The more we learn, the more we’re aware how our body works and can take of it. Live Healthy!

Reminiscing at Hua Hin, Thailand

Reminiscing at Hua Hin, Thailand

After a long tiring days of working too hard to turn over our project, perhaps I need to treat myself for a break. For peaceful and reminiscing relaxation I preferred to choose either a beach, resort and/or any place which are away from chaos.

Then I decided to spend my vacation at Hua Hin, Thailand; it takes three hours by plane to Bangkok and another 3 hours by car to get to Let’s Sea Al Fresco Resort – Hua Hin. It’s a little bit tiring but when I see the beautiful place and how peaceful it is, then it pays a lot of tired experience to get here.

As the many folks told, the vision for Let’s Sea Hua Hin Al Fresco Resort was inspired by long beach walks at different times of the year. Drawn back by memories of childhood visits to splash in the same gentle waves and rediscover Hua Hin all over again. The beach changes by day and night.

I am energized by the sunrise or marvel at the quiet beauty of the moon rising at the end of the day and indeed experience the starry nights with evening strolls at low tide in the cool season and now discovering the true grace and calm of Hua Hin.

I will be staying here for four days more and I hope to visit some of the temple and other activities of the Royal Family later today as part of the itinerary of the Resort. For now I am enjoying my stay and the services they provided me here is excellent.

The Secret Affair

There are instances that you can witness unwanted fascinating scenes that are not supposedly entitled to expose as they keep it with highly regard. To name a few; for instance, are forbidden relationships (secret affair), company anomaly and situations that are warned to be prohibited.


What will you do if you see with your naked eyes the secret affair of the people you know most? How can you escape when you experienced this instances where the people involve are dear to you? Will you tell them that you know their secret or just leave them alone?

It was not so easy for me to balance whether I reveal the secret that I saw or just don’t be attach to it. This is related to the wife of my boss. Our boss is the most intelligent person I ever knew and he treats us as part of his family too. We share ideas, personal problems and together come up with solutions – a great team.

Let’s just call the wife as Madam. She is in her 40’s sexy and beautiful whereas our boss is 15 years older than her. There are rumors that the Madam has a secret affair with a local guy but we don’t believe of course. As told, Madam is not in love with my boss, she just marry him because of the “wealth,” however our boss adore her to the fullest.

It was a sunny Tuesday; I went to a hotel to reserve a suit for our visitors from Singapore. It was unexpected that I saw them (Madam and the young beau) in the restaurant of the hotel caressing each other but they don’t recognize me because I am not wearing a uniform. My thought was perhaps it’s just a friend because obviously, you will never meet where you might be seen together in public when it is – a secret affair. However, when I take a second look they are kissing already, how was that?

Through the sudden occurrence, I felt that I commit a murder, the feeling that I have sleepless night thinking about what I saw and I don’t have peace of mind. I am shocked and inconceivable that the rumor is true. As many days passed, I can’t keep on facing my boss for a discussion because it reminds me of telling him but I know I should be responsible of my actions.

It’s not my business, I know! But sometimes my guilt prevails however; I don’t want to be blame for my action as well. Everything has an end, I am hoping it well very soon because I cannot look through the eyes of the honorable man cheated by a greedy wife.

Until now, I didn’t break the silence of their hidden secret. In time of revelation; they know the consequences of their act as well.

I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. But, if you really want to have a secure affair with no chance of being caught then do not have an affair. This is the simplest solution, and in addition to avoiding a lot of inconvenience, you will retain everyone’s respect. But it’s easier said than done.

A responsible person makes mistakes, but when they do, they take responsibility and make it right. When you stop pointing the finger, you have control over yourself. Just because the other person is acting a fool, don’t be one yourself.


Higher Than Number One!

It is commonly said that “Nobody is Perfect,” so nobody can be perfect, but experience can teach you to live as perfect as possible. Why put off what you can do now, when it keeps you busy and focused? You will have more time to get back to whatever you were doing before, plus, you won’t get yelled at if you forget.


Sometimes, we are forced to do things we hate but we felt responsible to get it done for the sake of the people we love, not only that; it happens commonly in our job. We sometimes see or experience events that make us feel terrible and we perceive these events as being wrong. But pleasure in the job puts perfection in our work.

There are cases that you don’t need to be perfect for something just to make other person like you, don’t you know that they already like you (as is) because in their eyes you are perfect for everything? You cannot please everybody, (of course) and you do not need to do so, because your principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practice perfection.

Do you investigate your behavior and dig beneath your anger for its source, apologize to someone so that you can both feel better and resolve to do better next time? Everyone with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.

I met a nice guy before and we had a semi-serious relationship. I was wondering why every time I accomplished something either in work or in everyday living he often told me, “I’m very happy for you, you’re higher than number one,” but then my reaction was just casual and not so curious about it, maybe because I was young and not so matured to think things for real. He even gave me a poster of my favorite, “Lord of the Rings” movie with his photo at the bottom and he wrote this again. Now, I realized how much he appreciates me but sadly he is not the Mr. Right for me, we have so many differences that I had long enough to give way until in the end I just give up.

I didn’t seek perfection for a relationship but I know before that he is not the guy I want to spend the rest of my life. The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection like you feel much for others and little for ourselves and to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections. Nevertheless, he thought me to do the best as I can be.

No one becomes perfect but you can be higher than number one.


Controlling Temper Over Confidence

Things can be handled well at all times; it’s just a matter of what kind of attitude you put into it but the reward of being patience is happiness.


Sometimes you get less appreciation, lots of blame and huge criticism despite of too much hard work you put into, this cases most probably happen at work. Getting away from a situation to drain your temper might be a good idea however sometimes pride takes over and there is a tendency that you can unreasonably get angry.

Jealousy and competition are most common ingredients of starting misunderstanding between colleagues which drives into hate and lies that creates beyond mishap.

If you’ve been bereaved, lost your job or are dumped by a partner, the chances are you may find yourself overwhelmed by fury. Don’t let your temper ruin your life even there are times when people tend to lose control of their emotions.

But instead of drowning yourself with your temper build self-confidence and prepare for success.

Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it, sadly; this can be a vicious circle. People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.

How confident do you seem to others?

Well, your level of self-confidence can show in many ways by your behavior, body language, how you speak, and what you say.  Now look at what you achieved, think your strengths and think about what is important to you and where you wanna go and then manage your mind.

Trying to be cool is not enough but being confident is perfect. You can achieve of what you want by believing in yourself, do the right things then reap the fruit of your labor.

Don’t forget that we are making our own fortune, be positive, work hard and you commit yourself to success. Learn to be more confident and trust your instinct.
