Majority have experienced hunger for one reason or another.  A doctor could be in a surgery for 10 hours straight without food.  A taxi driver could skip a meal to save money.  An admin assistant may delay lunch for a few hours because his/her boss demands that the 100-page manuscript be photocopied and delivered to the client without delay.  A beauty pageant candidate may choose to skip meals to maintain her small waist hours before the swimsuit competition.  A patient due for surgery the following morning may be ordered on ‘non per orem’ (NPO) or no food/water intake hours prior to a medical procedure.

The hunger we experience (or those in the above situations) has either been a personal decision or imposed by someone else.  But the hunger could be relieved at anytime, at our own choosing.

Well, this is not the case for some of our fellow Filipinos.  Statistics show that “every 7 seconds, 1 hungry child dies.”  These children did not choose to be hungry.  They are not hungry because they want to save money.  No, 4 million Filipino families live on a meager P42 every day.  They are not hungry because they are on a diet.  They are not hungry because they are due for a medical procedure.  They definitely are not hungry because their bosses want something done ASAP.

In an effort to raise more awareness on the extent of famine in the country, World Vision , an international child-focused organization, led the “Famine” program, “a global youth movement against hunger that gathers young people from across the world to go without food for a given number of hours as a sign of their radical fight against hunger.”

In the Philippines, the 12-hour famine was more than a success.  More than 2,500 youth signed up and over 1,000 actually joined the rally along with  some of Philippines’ biggest stars.

Renowned broadcaster and World Vision Goodwill Ambassador Karen Davila - "If the students are involved, then you have a movement of young people that want to change the world and feed younger people. Raising funds can happen as long as you have a group of students who are serious about feeding children and stopping hunger."

Singer, actress, TV host and World Vision ambassador for the Youth Nikki Gil - “What‟s 12 hours to go without food if it can help save a child‟s life...What we‟re doing now is not in vain!”

I was watching the first few episodes of So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 3 when I saw this belly dancer.  I know belly dancing (If size was the basis, then I really do know belly dancing. Hahaha.. my belly is not that huge but it is getting out of control lately) but I have never seen it done like that.  The chest pops had me awestruck.  Look for yourself.

I had me going to youtube to look for more videos. (more…)

Today’s Horoscope

If you’re a lonely heart, you’re going to meet the person of your dreams. If your neighbor or a relation looks for a quarrel, turn your back.

Hmmm.. hahaha.. That’s all the comment I can come up with for the first statement.  As for the second, well, it is not unlikely since I am blasting my music to the maximum!  And I am singing my lungs out to every track!

FOOTPRINTS…A New Version

Imagine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together.  For much of the way, the Lord’s footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the pace.

But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns.

For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line with the Lord’s, soon paralleling His consistently…

You and Jesus are walking as true friends!

This seems perfect, but then an interesting thing happens: Your footprints that once etched the sand next to Jesus’ are now walking precisely in His steps.

Inside His larger footprints are your smaller ones, you and Jesus are becoming one..

This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice another change.  The footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger.

Eventually they disappear altogether. There is  only one set of footprints.. They have become one.

This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all over the place.  Stops.  Starts. Gashes in the sand.  A variable mess of prints.

You are amazed and shocked.  Your dream ends. Now you pray:   ‘Lord, I understand the first scene, with zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was just learning. But You walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with You.’

‘That is correct.’
‘And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your steps, following You very closely..’

‘Very good.. You have understood everything so far..’  When the smaller footprints grew and filled in Yours, I suppose that I was becoming like You in every way.’

‘Precisely.’
‘So, Lord, was there a regression or something ? The footprints separated, and this time it was worse than at first.’

There is a pause as the Lord answers, with a smile in His voice.

‘You didn’t know? It was then that we danced!’

I am not one to forward religious stuff but this I found interesting. =)

OH. MY. GOD!

Is that it?  That’s the BIG news from apple?

Please tell me this is not ALL of it.  Please tell me there’s something more! Please tell me I did not just get excited over Beatles being on iTunes.

I wanna scream!  Is there no software update? No new gadget? No new technology? Great! Boo apple for making us drool so much and then leaving us drowning in it! Boo 20x! Boo!

I am loving this song more and more and more.  I first heard this in So You Think You Can Dance.  I think Lauren Froderman’s performance in SYTYCD S7 Vegas week made me fall in love with this song.

Lauren or LauFro was just awesome in her interpretation of the song.  The judges’ faces say it all – pure joy! Tyce DiOrio’s face, if I may say so, is orgasmic!  Hahaha… It seems like he just found Yamashita’s treasure! (more…)
