Rizal day


This is again the time of year for the Filipino Community to plan and make 
preparations  for our annual Rizal Day celebration, which will be held on  
Dec.30, 2014.  this day is a special day for us, for honoring our national hero,  
Aside from  commemorating the martyrdom of Rizal in Bagumbayan, it remind us 
that everyone can be a hero, because all our philippine heroes are not perfect, they 
live a normal eveyrday life, a colorful romantic lovelife, sometimes drunk, cheerful
and most of all I tell you, the romantic loverboy in his time.

we will celebrate the 118th death anniversary of Rizal on Dec 30, 2014. with this
Ill be writing and posting a few pictures I found on the internet and would share
this with you. because I know these are not shown in our HS or College textbooks
when we were studying.

deadly storms of December


from the years after 2008, we have seen typhoons that can only be seen in holywood
perfect super storm movies. the weather patterns are different now, before christmas,
before the year ends,  we are always visited by the last batch of deadly super typhoons.
I never heared of signal no. 4 when I was growing up. this is new to me. but after
Haiyan(2013), the pictures from socialmedia gave a different meaning to the term
supertyphoons, now, I know the extent of damage a 200+kph gust can bring. and
the new term called Storm Surge.

is winning really everything? the Autoliker

Please forgive me for my rant. I recently blogged about a wonderful contest that
gives car enthusiast a chance to win a new washover this Christmas. this is a
great chance for everyone. once selected, you only need to get the most number
of likes, and celebrate using the likes you harvested. simple & fun.  if the LIKES
are really human clicks...........

my friend Veejay Del Rosario from a group which am a member of
called FEROZA-PH recently joined a contest wherein the winner  will
get a fresh coat of paint,- Sponsored. similar to the popular PIMPMYRIDE show
of mtv.  the rules of the contest is simple, get the most number of likes and
shares in 4 days and win 25,000 worth of  paint products , bragging rights
and a feature in their website. cool? yes sure is!

my friend is leading for the first few days, me and my friends campaigned for him,
you see, in this group, we are all family, we all go out of our way to help a friend
in whatever way we can. and we are having good progress! but late at night
in the last few hours into the contest, we lost not by a hundred likes, but by
3000 likes! however, we lead  in the number of genuine shares. and we have
1300+ genuine likes! no question about it, by the rules, Veejay is the winner.
in my book, he is my winner, with more than 1300 likes and more than 500 shares
but the judges decision is based  on the number of most likes , and he ranked third.

what happened here?
my answer.
