Pizza Hut at the Gaisano Mall Davao


Today is Lady's birthday( my brother Seigfred's wife). My father wanted to treat her to eat at Pizza Hut. I never did like Pizza Hut but I also don't hate it. But with just what happened today, Pizza Hut will be not be on the top of my list anymore. While ordering for our food, my wife told me to take pictures of the place and then the menu, but while I'm taking picture of the menu, the waitress suddenly stop me from taking pictures of the menu, saying it was against the management order. Well, I did stop and even deleted the picture on my cam, but I was disappointed at what happened. I told my wife will it hurt them if a took a picture of what's inside their menu? Competitors wont copy whats inside the menu because there's no ingredient of the food there. And the price? Common, their price is no secret to all (for me they are too expensive, way too expensive). And to add more to my disappointment, after we finished eating, we ask for a glass of water and SURPRISE, they cant serve us water because they haven't washed the glasses yet(haven't wash the WHAT? They have plenty of employees who were just standing around doing nothing,) and a simple request of water is not hard to do ( a poor service on their part, very poor). I hope their management can do something about this.

Car Problems

Having a car of my own is a dream come true. I have myself a Toyota Vios, a red one because its my favorite color. Having a car is a luxury for me since if ever I want to go to some place where its hard to catch a ride or a bus, I wont have a problem since I have my own transportation. Grocery is another big problem of mine having to handle plenty of bags can be a hassle, and having to call a taxi is another one. But not now i can just put all those basket and bag on my cars baggage, and have plenty of time to stroll the mall.

But having a car is not all fun and luxury, responsibility of having to take care of your car is also important. I, on the other hand is not an expert when it comes to cars, especially when it comes to auto repair and parts. Sometimes I'm amaze of people especially in the US which even have a CEL or a check engine light in their vehicle. I even get confuse when my car starts buzzing with warning such as door ajar or lamps remind hahahaha. There is also this headaches on trying to find which shop to go to, to at least have a decent price but of good quality for repair, maintenance and parts.

The good thing though of having a car like Toyota Vios or like the much expensive Toyota Camry which is my dream car but its way too expensive for me, is that Toyota parts are easy to find and is almost always available on the market and on car shop. What is left is for you to find the most affordable one which can also be a stress with the many car shop now a days. But if you are not sure about it, you can go to the Toyota Center near your city.

So guys if you ever had plans on buying a new car make sure your well knowledge on car parts and maintenance.

Trip to Crocodile Farm

It has long been our wish to go to the Crocodile Farm here in Davao. I told my wife that i think where the one living here in Davao that have not went to the Crocodile Farm. Last Sunday when we attend Mica's baptism, after having lunch at my Mica's house, we all decided that its time to go home, then out of the blue my father ask us if would we like to go to Crocodile Farm since we'll be passing it anyway in the superhighway so of course we said yes. And with my camera at hand we have a blast watching the crocodile and all the animals there, while i was also busy taking photo's.


I forgot what is the name of this animal?


One of the many beautiful butterfly that can be found on the Butterfly Sanctuary

You can find more pictures of the Crocodile Farm at

Taylor Lautner is Stretch Armstrong


Twilight star Taylor Lautner is to star as "Stretch Armstrong" in the latest Hollywood movie inspired by a best selling action figure from toy makers Hasbro. Lautner will play Armstrong, a popular 1970s toy featuring gel filled limbs that stretch to improbable lengths. (i dunno if this will be a hit for kids today, especially since his power is similar to DC's Plastic Man or to local movie in the Philippines as Lastik Man).

The 3-D film comes after Hasbro successfully brought its Transformers and GI Joe products to the bog screen. 2012 release date has been scheduled for Armstrong, which will be produced by Oscar winner Brian Grazer.

The Monkey in the Year of the Tiger 2010

The sign of Monkey always clashes with the sign of Tiger. Therefore, Year of the Tiger 2010 is not a good fortune year for the Monkey people in terms of career, profession, business and finance. Hence, always be alert and pay more attention in area of these activities. Dedicate more time and effort with determination in order to counter those difficulties. Only limited accomplishments foreseen, as much as possible, don't panic in any circumstances, keep calm. But however, things may sometime turn good due to a bright star indicated in Chinese months of March, May and November. Try to associate with people born under the sign of Rat and Dragon; they are your helpful friends to conquer bad sign. Bank borrowings and risky or speculative stock market are not suitable for you, losses indicated in your sign this year. You have to strive harder in order to retain your financial savings. Although no serious illness will strikes on your health, but always be alert and attentive in those minor sickness and discomfort. Avoid falling from high places, put more care. Family members safety must always be your priority. There will be no major home tension or trouble because you will find it easy to sort out the differences among family members with your strong persuasive power. Love relationship is both warm and cold. Love and romance are mixed with happy and boring period. Therefore, love life is considered on and off cycle and hard to achieve the fullness of your love affair in those unpleasant months.

How to Cope up with a Trauma

We all have seen on TV the horrors of what typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng have brought. Not to mention another tragic event that happened to Haiti. People experiencing such a traumatic experience have a disturbing and powerful feelings in them. They usually settle in time without professional help, but it would help if they understand the variety of emotions that engulf them.

Following a traumatic incident, they experience denial and shock. This can last for several hours pr days, then followed by other emotions such as fear, hopelessness, anger, guilt, sadness, relief and hope among others.

So how do you cope up with this? First give yourself time. Each person copes differently, but here are common ways of doing so.

1. Find out what happened. Better to face the reality of what happened than keep on wondering about what might have happened.

2. Be involved with other survivors. It helps to spend time with others who have been through the same experience as yours.

3. Talk it over. Talking about what happened helps a lot. You can do this with your friends or family, even if all they do listen. And don't worry if you cry when you talk. It's natural and usually helpful.

4. Take some time for yourself. It's perfectly alright if at times you want to be alone or to be with people close to you.

5. Get into a routine. Sometimes you won't feel like eating, but try to have regular meals and to eat a balanced diet. Do some gentle exercise also.

6. Do some "normal" things with other people. Sometimes you'd want to be with other people but not to talk about what happened.

7. Take extra care. After a trauma, people are more likely to have accidents. So be careful when driving or going around.

Jeepney Etiquette

Can someone post on the billboard on the street or maybe on the malls a jeepney etiquette. Yes, there are times when i go to work and ride a jeep/jeepney (a public vehicle) early in the morning, your bombarded with some of the ugliest behavior of passengers at the jeep. Ruining your morning straight to work, or while going home already. Here are some of ugly habits passengers do on the jeep.

1. Smokers: You ride the jeep, some guy or girl want to ride the jeepney. The jeep stop ( and you notice before the person rides the jeep he/she is smoking a cigarette ) no offense to smokers but, before he/she enters the jeep the person throws his cigar on the street but blows the smoke upon entering the jeep. Leaving you with the smell of cigar on your way to work (ohh by the way smoking is not allowed on public vehicle in our city).

2. Sleepers: Heres another idiot you wouldn't want to be sitting beside with. The guy/girl maybe haven't got a good sleep and instead take a couple of close eyes while riding the jeep. And when hes in deep slip, his body leaned on to you making you his personal bed.

and lastly

3. The Late Payers: This one is one of my all time favorite. You ride the jeep( the jeep is long hmmm imagine the length of a limousine hahaha maybe im exaggerating here but is long). Me when I ride the jeep as I sit down I already prepare my fee, and i pay it immediately the moment i got to sit down and got settled ( to avoid forgetting to pay, and to avoid being a late payer) the jeep can accommodate 12 person to the max on one side of the jeep. The as every passenger would leave upon arriving to their destination, the jeep is left with two passengers you and the idiot. And your siting next to that person who is right next to the exit. Then when its his place to leave, that's the time he/she will pay and the moron will give the money to you for you to give it to the driver whose a mile away from where your sitting (exaggerating again but its far believe me). Although i wont accept his/her fee and tell that person to give it directly to the driver. Its still would irritate me.

Now did you experience this kind of situation? what are your bad experiences riding a jeepney?

Most Stolen Cars

Hondas and Toyotas are the most frequently stolen passenger cars because they have parts that can be readily exchanged between model years without a problem.

Glad i dont have one hahaha.

Sunny Sunday at Mintal

Kinilaw is one of my favorite dish, although in some restaurant they serve this as an appetizer. But for me its one of my main dish. Me and my wife are craving for kinilaw last week, so yesterday we went to order a kinilaw. Its was delicious and if kinilaw was not enough we also ordered a kilawing kambing hahaha. Man are we that hungry we cleaned those up to top with 4 cups of rice. We each had two cups each.


After eating we went to Mintal to visit our house, upon arriving we notice our electricity has been cut hahaha. We failed to pay the electric bill on December last year (Ohh the bill was 20 pesos only). So we change our dress to start cleaning the house. Luckily it was a sunny Sunday, good for cutting grass outside of the house.


My wife was such a tireless workhorse. She finished cutting grass on all 3 corners of the house, I on the other hand was struggling to finish one side hahaha, maybe that's why shes born on the year of the horse she has an abundant of stamina compared to me. After we finished cleaning we pack our things and went home.
