Yesterday, I visited a friend at the hospital who was diagnosed with liver cancer. He was initially confined because of complaint of blurry vision. He thought it was his diabetes acting up again. After several tests and only a day turnaround time, a 12cm mass was found in his liver. Extraction and biopsy followed then the diagnosis. He is 41 years old. He is his family's breadwinner. He has 2 boys. The eldest is 4-years old and the second is 3. The jolly, noisy, and always-singing friend I know is now thin and worrisome.
The Little Prince has been written in the 1940s by Antoine de Saint-Exupery yet its lessons never go Jurrasic. The lessons continually shed light to each one of us as its famous quotes are being referenced to until now. I have to admit that I have just read this book now although I have come across it several times before. I never felt the urge to read it... and boy, did I regret. I recommend you read it. Don't overthink it. Just move along the pages. I am sure you will not even want to stop once you get started.
As a wise man said, "Beauty is the eye of the beholder". I agree with that. However, it does not hurt if beauty is also in the eye of those looking at you, right? We are, after all, social beings. With that said, I always make an effort to care for my skin and exert even much more care for my face (as it is more sensitive).
When I was in my senior year in high school, I was worried about my future. Which college should I go? What profession do I see myself practicing in the future? Would I be good at it? At a limbo, the future was an uncertain scary place.
I was at the 14th floor lobby waiting for the elevator on my way to lunch when everything shook. At first I thought I was having a vertigo attack. I leaned to the wall trying to keep my balance. When I saw the door shake intensely and the printers moving, I knew then it was an eathquake. 5 seconds passed and the shaking still did not stop. I rushed to the door hoping to go back to my office and hide under my table. I twisted and pulled the knob but it did not open. It was like playing tug-o-war with the door. Yes, I was in panic.
My whole team of 18 and I decided to spend our Saturday together for a team bonding activity. We wanted to do something else other than the usual lunch and movie. That's when we decided to go fishing. What?!?! Yes, you read that right. Fishing! Cebu is unique in that aspect. You can be as busy as a worker bee in the morning surrounded with all the noise in the city but can also be calm and relax like maybe go fishing in the afternoon of the same day. Liloan is only a 30-min drive away from Cebu City without heavy traffic.
As you may have guessed my age, I was not born on the 50s... LOL but would have loved to have lived there all the same. The ambiance of this restaurant at the newly opened J Center Mall is inspired by the 50s. And what better icon to link it with but the first model of the famous Beattle! The converted Beattle placed right inside the restaurant makes the ambiance very unique. Yes, that is Herbie wearing a 50 instead of 53.... and yes, that is me smiling to show you that you can choose to dine inside Herbie. Coolest, right?!
