Manny's Power

Did you ever imagine how much power every Pacman punch contains? I doubt and wonder, if I absorb one of those rattling punches I would even last a round. Manny's power has proved to be overwhelming that it has influenced commerce. The above tv ad is actually the second commercial circling American televisions.

The first one is seen below. I believe this was never shown in the Philippine screens. It's subtle and lenient but I think I like it more.

I Like the Way She Laughed

My liver almost came out a couple times, giggling while watching this Youtube video.

What were the judges thinking?!

They awarded the second best title of the nation's ultimate beauty pageant to a pretty face with an empty head.

To think we are considered one of the best english-speaking races, aside from the Americans and the English, they are sending a completely incorrect signal not only with the foreign community but most importantly to us, fellow Filipinos and the younger generation -- it's okay to be stupid as long as you're beautiful.

Read my lips: Ha! Ha! Ha!

Why Is Our Country Poor

Blogger's Note: I came across this at Iniibig Ko ang Pilipinas blog. While I don't particularly know when I can recover from being crippled at writing posts, I'd like to share the same by displaying the essay meant to stir the mindset of fellow countrymen.

THE DIFFERENCE|Dr. Arsenio Martin|Fort Arthur, Texas

The difference between the poor countries and the rich ones is not the age of the country.

This can be shown by countries like India & Egypt that are more than 2000 years old, but are poor.

On the other hand, Canada , Australia & New Zealand, that 150 years ago were inexpressive, today are developed countries, and are rich.

The difference between poor & rich countries does not reside in the available natural resources.

Japan has a limited territory, 80% mountainous, inadequate for agriculture & cattle raising, but it is the second world economy. The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw materials from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.

Another example is Switzerland, which does not plant cocoa but has the best chocolate in the world. In its little territory they raise animals and plant the soil during 4 months per year. Not enough, they produce dairy products of the best quality! It is a small country that transmits an image of security, order & labor, which made it the world's strongest, safest place.

Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts in poor countries show that there is no significant intellectual difference.

Race or skin color are also not important: immigrants labeled lazy in their countries of origin are the productive power in rich European countries.

What is the difference then? The difference is the attitude of the people, framed along the years by the education & the culture & flawed tradition.

On analyzing the behavior of the people in rich & developed countries, we find that the great majority follow the following principles in their lives:

1. Ethics, as a basic principle.
2. Integrity.
3. Responsibility.
4. Respect to the laws & rules.
5. Respect to the rights of other citizens.
6. Work loving.
7. Strive for savings & investment.
8. Will of super action.
9. Punctuality.
10. and of course...Discipline

In poor countries, only a minority follow these basic principles in their daily life.

The Philippines is not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel to us. In fact, we are supposedly rich in natural resources.

We are poor because we lack the correct attitude. We lack the will to comply with and teach these functional principles of rich & developed societies.

If you do not forward this message nothing will happen to you. Your pet will not die, you will not be fired, you will not have bad luck for seven years, and also, you will not get sick or go hungry.

But those may happen because of your lack of discipline & laziness, your love for intrigue and politics, your indifference to saving for the future, your stubborn attitude.

If you love your country, let this message circulate so that many Filipinos could reflect about this, & CHANGE, ACT!
