Do they really have to count the days?

I hate it when they do that! Why do they have to count the days 'til Christmas? As if counting it will make any difference... it will come, whether we like it or not.

Whether I like it or not.

Suddenly, I'm the new Mr. Scrooge of Christmas.

No, not really. Honestly, it really doesn't make any difference to me anyway, whether it's Christmas or not. I just don't care.

I don't think I need to explain, do I?

Sure, go ahead with your celebrations. I don't forbid you. I don't have that right. In fact, if you greet me on Christmas, I'll greet you back so as not to dampen your Christmas spirit.

But then again, like I said, it really won't make any difference on my part.

No Sugar Coating this time, just great holiday sale

No Sugar Coating, just the facts on this great holiday sale.

Do we have the right to ask?

I've been there... not long ago... watching a love one fight for dear life. It's not easy. You're torn between holding on and letting go, for exactly the same reason - because you love them.

This morning, we rushed my auntie to the hospital. She was pale, she was not breathing. Thank God she still has pulse... heartbeat... albeit weak and irregular. My cousins were devastated. They've lost my uncle last year... and now my auntie, their mother is in life and death situation.

And in this situation, you can't help but ask, why? Why is this happening? Why did God let this come unto us? Why is He not helping us? Why? Why? Why? It never ends... yet we never get the answer.

Nobody knows God's ways... it's beyond our comprehensions. Sure, it's easy to say that God knows what's best for us... especially when you are not in the situation. It's really easy to judge when you're just on the outside looking in. We think we understand... but do we really?

Nobody knows... nobody understands... even those who think that they do.

Honestly, for me, the best that I can do now is ask.

Accident insurance claims, know your rights!

If only I could get back to those who took advantage of me and wife when she was still here. We have been conned, bullied, and lied at. Unfortunately, it was not our nature to get even. I wish I would know how to fight for my right.

First Personal Injury could have helped, but only if it has some accident in it. If it does involve an accident, they could assist in filing for personal injury claims. Because fighting for the rights of accident victims is their specialty. They have professional injury lawyers who are expert in their field and knows how to win the fight of the victim. They guarantee a high percentage of winning the case of the victim.

Their service even includes a no-win, no-pay policy. This is their proof that they want to help especially those who don't have the money to pay them. Unfortunately, the people I've met before are not like them.

Street bikers are often bumped and sideswiped, because people think they don't have a right on the road. But the truth is they do. First Personal Injury encourages them to file for Bicycle accident claims and will guide and assist them every step of the way to get their rightful due.

And for motor vehicle drivers involved in an accident with another vehicle, sometimes they suffer from whiplash because of the strong impact of the accident. Then, they should file for whiplash injury claims.

So, if you were involved in an accident recently, or maybe even for quite some time now, why not give First Personal Injury a call. Who knows? You might get something once you learned about your rights. That is the only legal way to get even to others who caused you harm.

I really wish they have emotional injury claims.

"I know how it feels to beg"

Whenever I am writing a blog post, most of the time the article takes a life of its own. That is why I end up writing something that I never intended to write in the first place. Yet I do not edit nor delete them.

Just like my recent post, An effort to raise funds, my own little way of spreading the word about two angels who needed help. I blogged about it because I know how it feels to be there, to be helpless. And just like I said in the post "I know how it feels to beg."

I never really intended to write that there, but somehow the story reminds me of my situation then. Although it was of a different case, it was a situation wherein I was in need. I was practically begging... looking out for money to spend for my wife's next dialysis session.

I am thankful to those who have supported us then.

But most of all, it also reminded me that some people then looked at me as a con artist. People who took me as an opportunist who is only out to get some money... and it has brought my already dampened spirit lower than low.

That is why when I read the news in Philippine Star, without really anything much to share, I did the next best thing that I can do - I blogged about it, so that at least the word could spread around. Even though I just have a small influence with a small number of readers, I just hope it could amount to something.

That way, their families wouldn't have to beg themselves. They won't be looked down upon... they won't be doubted. And maybe through the power of blogs, they might receive the help that they need.

Believe me, it's not easy being a beggar... especially when you're perceived to be someone who should be successful.

Nouveau Riche for real estate investment education

Nouveau Riche is a real estate investment university that provides students the ins and outs of real estate investment. Providing its student an educational environment, it utilizes ISD or Instructional System Design, which is a time tested principles adopted by all higher-education institutions. This system accelerates learning and maximizes retention, which makes the students confident in facing the real world of real estate investment.

Every student of Nouveau Riche has a potential of making it big and becoming a big name in the real estate investment industry. This is because they are being thought by professional real estate investors, people who are practicing the profession themselves. These people are unselfishly sharing their experiences, know-how and techniques that made successful in the industry.

And now that Nouveau Riche is being lead by a new CEO, former University of Phoenix President Dr. Laura Palmer Noone, who brings with her years of experience in handling an educational institution. Nouveau Riche can be expected to be a more dynamic institution which will provide hope and education to their students.

The real estate provides great opportunity, but it is available to those who are qualified and are willing to grab it. And one can only be qualified once he has the proper knowledge to handle the intricacies of the industry.

Rags to riches... can it really happen?

Although I don't really want to use the word envy, we can't help but feel that way when we hear of rags to riches stories of people we know. While we may feel happy for other people's fortune, we also wish that we could be as lucky too. But guess what, rising from rags to riches isn't all about luck but hard work, commitment and dedication.

This is what Efren 'Bata' Reyes gave to become a world champion billiard player. Manny Pacquiao did not reach his status overnight but through years of continuous training and discipline. The same goes true with our bowling hero Paeng Nepomuceno. Nothing is really sweeter than the fruits of long and hard labor, instead of instant fortune who doesn't really last long.

This is what the students of Nouveau Riche are experiencing, reaping the fruits of their success because they dared accept the challenge of the opportunity. The opportunity of making it big in the real estate investment business.

Nouveau Riche
actually means 'New Rich' in French. No wonder then than graduates of the Noveau Riche University are fast becoming Nouveau Riche themselves. They have become a living proof that rags to riches stories can happen... if you work hard for it.

Can't move on?

“Why can’t you move on?” I am puzzled. What does moving on means? When can one say that he can’t move on or he has already moved on? Do I strike you as someone who was not able to move on?

After being exposed on national TV because of my letters to my wife, there are not few who said that maybe it’s time for me to move on. Move on?! Again, what does moving on mean?

One fellow told me, “You’re still young, you can remarry. You need to MOVE ON. It doesn’t mean you have forgotten your wife.” There’s one interpretation of MOVING ON, getting married again. Is that really what “moving on” mean?

One comment that I received says “I don’t think this is what your wife want you to do. She wants you to MOVE ON, take care of your kids and your future. Stop this foolishness.” And I take it that the comment meant for me to stop writing my letters and ‘get a life!’ so to speak.

In my 40 years of existence in this planet, I never lived based on anybody else’s standard. And I’m not going to start now. I don’t think their definition of MOVING ON suits my own… and quite frankly “I don’t give a damn” (I always wanted to say that!)

I have a life. I am happy with my kids. Getting married again is not my priority and me going to stop writing my letters is out of the question. Who would know what my wife wants? You think you know her better than me?

Fortunately for me, there are more supporters than these naysayers. And these people, though I may not reply to them directly, has given me more strength to continue with what I’m doing. People who sees beyond skepticism and believe that there could actually be an internet in heaven.

As for those people who insist on their definition of moving on, I’ll say “thank you very much, but by your standards, then I’d rather be stagnant”

Affordable prescription glasses

One of the effects of getting old is that the eyesight gets affected. Being 40 years old, and with too much exposure with the computer monitor, I have to admit that my eyesight is not as good as they used to be.

Unfortunately prescription glasses are not affordable, they could drain a hole in the pocket, if you know what I mean. Thanks to Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses, I can afford to have better eyesight without cutting much on my budget.

And with the Incredible Stylish New Frames From Zenni, I can still look cool while I maintain to have a clearer vision. Prescription glasses that can make you look cool! What more can you ask?

To back-up Zenni Optical’s reputation is the fact that Zenni Optical was on FOX news! That’s credibility for you! Now, my sight need not suffer. There is still an affordable prescription eyeglass for me from Zenni Optical.
