Believe it or not... this image was taken with Samsung S5! But I guess, it all boils down with how the photographer frames and composes his shot that really matters! Desert Morning of Just Mobile Photos https://justmobilephotos.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/desert-morning.jpg
The Orb of Gold…
As I see the sun fading away in the horizon, I just thought of how wonderful life can be… And I can’t help reblogging this! 🙂
A wonderful sight I tell you so;
As I gape to the Sun going low;
In sunrise, sunset, e’er a good show;
Believe me, the Sun is always aglow!
The orb of gold upon the sky;
How I wish that I could fly;
If in unison please say ‘Aye’;
As the Sun bids its goodbye!
Setting the stage for war …
To my fellow Filipinos, this is one of the reasons why we had World War II in Asia…
“Roosevelt had not only opened the door for Japan to conquer neighboring nations, he gave them the ideal instructor and plans to do it with. For detailed information see: The Imperial Cruise, by James Bradley.”
Pres. T. Roosevelt, courtesy of Saturday Evening Post
For centuries Asian products were desired, but one of the most profitable trade routes operated from India to China, introducing opium into that country. This market accounted for 20% of the British Empire’s revenue and was the basis of the Roosevelt family wealth.
Teddy Roosevelt, a frail and sickly aristocrat, was taught thru his youth and at Harvard of Aryan supremacy in government and intellect. Columbia University professor John Burgess impressed him with white American world domination. With this ideology, he followed the European nations in absorbing colonies. He pushed for control of the Philippines where the American behavior was deplorable, but overlooked. The U.S. Minister to Japan, DeLong, encouraged “General” Charles LeGendre to go to Japan and instruct them on invasion tactics and instigate his “Monroe Doctrine” for Asia. (Three decades later it would be known as the Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere of…

Here are the rules of the challenge:
1.Write a whole paragraph (a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy for ya?)
2.By reading this you are already signed up.
3.Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge.
4.They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure.
5.If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.

The rules are a bit chain lettery (yes, it’s a word, although I might have just made it up) and I don’t know if there really is a Page of Lame or a Page of Fame but I love words so I thought this would be fun, definitely more challenging than I thought it would be. I did bust out my old thesaurus, yes I know there’s one online but I…

Pinoy Culture: The “Dinaya” Mentality
Why do Filipinos always feel that they were cheated? Why can’t Filipinos accept defeat with grace in a sportsman’s fashion? Why do Filipinos always assume that they won the election, the competition, and a boxing bout? Why are Filipinos “pikon” (sore losers) and usually resort to childish retorts of insults to those who defeated them?
The Filipinos are slowly adopting a culture which I see as somewhat unlikable… The “Dinaya” mentality or the perception of being cheated.
One excellent example is the manner by which most politicians react when they lose their bid to “power”… They often surmise that they were cheated during the elections.
There was also a case where a student complained that she was cheated out of becoming a valedictorian. And in almost every competition where Filipinos participated and lost the game, Pinoys often have this assumption that they were cheated. The recent Pacquiao-Mayweather bout is another case where majority of Filipinos felt that Mayweather cheated to win the game…

I am a Filipino… And I am to be Blamed for What is Happening to my Country
It’s about time for the Filipino people to stop complaining on how corrupt their government is…
It is about time for the Filipino people to stop bribing government officials and employees to facilitate things the easy way…
It is about time for the Filipino people to stop asking money and favors from politicians…
It is about time for the Filipino people to stop avoiding paying the right taxes…
And it is about time for the Filipino people to choose candidates based on their qualifications, not because they are popular in cinemas and tele-seryes!
The Philippine government and its officials are corrupt because the Filipino people tolerated and made them corrupt…!
The Filipino people are at fault… The Filipino people are to blame… The Filipino people just get what they deserve!
