Free Ni-Ti Zone

Parents should be just like the free Wi-Fi zones out there that are available to be tapped if one wants access to the Internet. In this case, they should be called Ni-Ti, read as Nay-Tay short for the Tagalog name for Mother and Father. “Nanay” and “Tatay” or “Inay” and “Itay”, similar to Mommy and Daddy, Mom and Dad, or Mama and Papa.

Similar to most Wi-Fi signals, a parent’s presence should always be available and reachable when the children need them most…and not weak or fading on and off.

Parents should have a strong enough signal like maybe four bars at least, if five bars is not possible, so that communication would be easily felt at its acceptable level. Dropped or intermittent calls are simply a pain especially if in the middle of a very important conversation.


July 2012 PH Magazine Covers

July 2012 issues of Philippine magazines….still dominated by the ladies, the most stunning (as of the moment – I’m not sure if there are still incoming issues to be released) is the cover graced by steaming hot Georgina Wilson in Esquire magazine.

She will really make you sweat!

Look down further to see the rest of the magazines.


Road Distractions

Driving is a complex task. To anticipate and avoid hazards on the road, drivers need to concentrate and give it their full attention.

You can never be sure about what other drivers will do, which is why preventative measures are important. Such measures include keeping your distance from other vehicles, keeping your speed down and staying alert to what is happening all around you.

It involves constant and complex coordination between your mind and body. Events or things that prevent you from operating your car safely are distractions. There are three types of distractions and they are anything that takes your:

  • eyes off the road (visual).
  • mind off the road (cognitive).
  • hands off the steering wheel (manual).


Pidol’s Caricatures

I fancy all things drawn whether by hand or aided by a computer.

While more and more groups are pushing for the filing of an urgent motion for the immediate and already long overdue conferment of the  National Artist Award to the ailing revered comedy icon (while he is still alive and could appreciate it), I also would like to pay tribute to the King of Comedy by posting these caricatures of him that I collected from all over the Internet.

Kudos to the creators! You all know who you are!

To Tito Dolphy, or Pidol to some, keep hanging on! There are so many people whose lives you’ve touch with your humor, kindness and generosity, one way or the other, directly or indirectly, so you’ll be surely missed if you leave us now. Stay with us, and keep us laughing with you, for more years to come!


Prayers For Dolphy

Dolphy, or Rodolfo Vera Quizon in real life, is suffering  from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who likely caught the illness through its primary cause: smoking.

The 83-year-old King of Comedy, who is also known as Pidol, has been in and out of the hospital for some time now and his weakened immune system caused him serious health problems.

Countless warnings have already advised us that smoking doesn’t really do us any good, but many still continue with the habit.


Facebook Fan Page, Anyone?

LinkedIn has “connections,” Twitter has “followers”, but Facebook famously co-opted the word “friend” and created a new verb.

What would be an impressive number of friends in real life?

British anthropologist and Oxford professor Robin Dunbar has posed a theory that the number of individuals with whom a stable interpersonal relationship can be maintained (read: friends) is limited by the size of the human brain, specifically the neocortex. “Dunbar’s number,” as this hypothesis has become known, is 150.

Facebook says 5,000.
