Happy New Year!!!

New Year's Resolution

My height is 5'3" and as shown in the height to weight ratio chart below (boxed with red), if a person stands 5'3" the target weight is at least 128 lbs. But I only weigh 98 pounds. I feel sad when I see this chart. Anyway, it is still my fault because I am too picky on foods. If I don't like the color and appearance I just take a little of it. I only eat much if I love the food. But it seldom happens. Well, I eat meals regularly, i t just didn't reach the minimum requirement maybe. So with this, I need self-discipline in order to gain weight. It might not be that easy for me but I will try my very best.

2. For my colleagues (at work) - May they continue to share their knowledge to the young minds unconditionally.

3. And to all my friends – May God grant all their wishes for this year.

"It's better to give than to receive." A common quote taught in the olden days til this time.

Christmas is a season of sharing and giving presents. Not only gifts that can be touched but including those that are felt in heart. Love, forgiveness and compassion. These are priceless compared to anything else. Material things don't last for a lifetime. They are but indispensable. But if love reigns in every heart of every human, the earth will be a harmonious place to live in.

Merry Christmas!

Halloween Reflection

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory will become a treasure that will always be remembered.

One great celebration usually falls on the second day of November. We value, we cherish this moment with much love and sometimes regrets for their loss. But we couldn’t tell them to stay when God wants them to be with Him all along. All we have to keep is just the memory of the past. Good or bad. We can never make things perfect though we tried to be. But behind those imperfections lies possibility to change the wrong acts we have done. As long as we live, we have all the chance to make things better if not best.

Happy Halloween!

Teaching Filipino Made Easy

It's been a year when I started teaching Filipino. It's a little bit hard. But it’s challenging. :-)

Although, I can copy my old self made lesson plan but not all its details because I need to improve it with the new techniques I learned from peer, from seminars and others. Sometimes, the length of preparation remains the same. Hence, it takes a longer time referring to the old one. I need to make comparison. Later, I decided to do it alone with the new strategies. It's not that I just don't want to give more time for it. But...I just have a lot of things to prepare. Namely: ICT I, ICT III, Computer Education I for Special Science Class and Values Education. With these subjects, my time is not only for LP but for visual aids too. I am handling two sections for ICT I and I section for the special Science class. Both are first years but they don’t share the same preparation. CompEd is quite advanced that it consume topics for ICT I and II. For ICT III, I only have one section. For my advisory class, we have the Filipino and Values.

It’s my first time teaching on both of the subjects mentioned. Well, I love ICT of course thought it’s quite far from my field of specialization (Architectural Drafting). Speaking of Filipino, well, I still love it anyway, I love the challenge! Life can never be boring with new experiences. Some may think it's laborious but never with me because in every task I do is an offering, a thanksgiving. I also would like to share one of my favorite bible quotes about service. Ephesians 6:5-7
Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; not by way of eye service, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men.”

I’ve already got a long introduction. Lol. Well, I can never begin with an ending anyway. :-) Actually, I just would like to share this new page by the Bureau of Secondary Education (BSE). This is intended for all teachers under the Department of Education, Philippines. It is found at http://bse.portal.ph/. It was introduced to us by the school principal of TNVS during our INSET Seminar 2010. It is where I found learning modules in Filipino and a lesson plan. Both can be downloaded. This really made my task easier. I will not be wasting time of thinking what and how can I make it perfect. Because, a perfect tool for this, is already within my reach. It’s just a modem away.

With learning modules, it supplies not only Filipino but also other subjects. The same with the lesson plans. Both items are submitted, corrected and then published. When it is published it can already be read and downloaded by anybody who needs it.

A special thanks to those who initiated this idea. To the contributors of this reference, thank you for sharing your knowledge. A lot of teachers can benefit this fruit of labor from you.

How to Heal a Broken Heart

"If someone hurts you and makes you cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it."

Someone asked why our heart can not be converted. Because she wanted to have hers if there is an opportunity. I didn’t bother to ask why; obviously, she was hurt. Anyway, a physical pain cures easily compared to an emotional pain. That’s a fact. If I am going to accumulate her tears from the beginning of her story up to the last minute of our conversation, it can already make a long river. Who can stop her feelings from being hurt? No can tell but her alone.

If she’s courageous enough to express what she felt without considering other peoples feelings, then it maybe take her away from being hurt that bad. But being so conscious about other peoples feelings led her to keep the heartaches she undergoes. But for me it’s not healthy. She must fight for her right. Show to people that she is not a doormat that others used to step on.

Building a bridge and get over it is the best option. Let me tell her, “Go ahead! Do what is right and what makes you happy.”

Let's Celebrate Halloween!

This figure will never be absent during this day. Some might wonder why this pumpkin? What is pumpkin? Now, let me tell a short description about this amazing gourd-like squash. It has a very thick shell on the outside. It has seeds in the inside.

Well, there a lot of figures that can be associated with this event. But I chose to share this one because most are scary...I might dream about them. :-) I can be strong in a lot of things that I need to fight for. But not with stuffs like horror. Even if I know it's not real.

A Believe It or Not Story

His talent is amazing. In fact, a lot of people love him for that.

He's young and good looking. With his good voice and personality who would not like him anyway? He looks innocent on this picture. So admirable, isn't it?

Despite of the news about Justin Bieber's mysterious personality, I still like his RnB song entitled “Somebody To Love.” It’s quite hard for me to believe the allegations against him. But whichever is the reality, “One Less Lonely Girl” is still my number one.The music and the lyrics are both cool. I just hope everything that I have heard and read about him is not true. So that he will be able to continue to soar high with his gift of singing.

Powerful Colors

Primary colors are considered the root of all colors. What are these colors anyway? Wait, let me enumerate the three: these are the red, blue and yellow. Most colors are mixtures of any two primaries. Let me give you an example. First: mixing an equal amount of yellow and blue makes green. Second: mixing the same amount of blue and red makes violet. Third: mixing the same amount of yellow and red makes orange
