Be Better: READ!

Nowadays, reading books is like a waste of time to most of the children. With the outpour of gadgets, that I myself find more interesting, who can blame them, right? But as someone who comes from an older generation, I believe that it’s our responsibility to teach them not just the right way but also the best way to learn. And that includes reading books.

In this world of high-tech technologies, reading is one of the basic skills that everyone should possess in order to survive in this cruel world. No matter how young nor old you are, it is important to keep in mind that learning is all about self-improvement no matter the age or the level, according to educational entrepreneurs, Jerry Vicente Catabijan and May Jovero-Catabijan of Saint Mary’s Publishing Corporation

Saint Mary’s Publishing Corporation has been in the publishing business for 47 years now. And with this life partners, who believes that it takes one dedication to be able to achieve this goal, having a good support system, a good guide, teacher or mentor can be a great tool in shaping up ones mind.

That's why Mr. Catabijan, a good key person for this kind of issues, has created www.bebetter.com.pha website that will provide free articles on a variety of topics like teaching tips, book features, profiles on writers and other educators.

Are we Ready for Rotavirus Vaccine?

When my nieces get sick, I'm one of the family members who get so nervous. Asked my parents and relatives, they know that I don't like knowing my nieces get sick. It sickens me to know that our little angels are unhappy and unhealthy. And if it sickens me that my nieces are sick, what more to their parents? What more to the other parents who are personally taking good care of their children? I can't blame them if they get angry to the doctors or nurses who act normal during those crucial times.

Last week, I was invited to a small gathering where doctors from GlaxoSmithKline Philippines exposed the alarming death toll caused by one of the common ailments that children get - DIARRHEA.

According to the report presented to us by Dr. Salvacion Gatchalian, Director, Clinical R & D and Medical Affairs for GlaxoSmithKline Philippines, the Philippines diarrhea deaths accounts to 12% among children whose ages are 5 and below. An about 13 children a day die because of this deadly ailment.

She also stated that in the Philippines and worldwide, diarrhea is the second leading killer of children. And every day, there are about 1,500 children around the globe suffer and die due to these rotavirus-related diarrhea, a suffering that could have been averted if the governments and families will just take action on its commitment on saving the  lives of these children.

And as everyone started wearing their masks, Trainer JR's booming voice echoed all over the place, talking like the mighty Thor, challenging his trainees to the task or gym exercise (the FTX way) that he will say.

Katy Perry California Dreams Live in Manila

First of all, I would like to thank my friend, Nherz, for tagging me along. Seeing Katy Perry in person was one of my many Christmas wishes last year, and thank God that he answered my prayers with Silver tickets! Wee!

Seeing Katy Perry performing live last Sunday at the concert grounds of SM Mall of Asia brought back the wonderful feeling of Yuletide season and made us all excited for the forthcoming summer season because this concert is, for me, the best concert ever!

Complete with all the story, props, dance moves and songs, Katy Perry's California Dreams' Manila concert was superbly amazing and absolutely breathtaking.

Ready for 2012 with Axe Survival Kit

Some philanthropist say that 2012 is the last year for human being, some say that it's not. As a Catholic and a believer of life, I honestly do not believe that 2012 is our last year, but I guess preparing for the so-called "end of the world" wouldn't be that bad, especially if you are preparing for it in a fun and ecstatic way.  And guess what, there's this "Axe Survival Kit" to guide you through it. *wink*

Yesterday, to my surprise, I received a dubious box containing the words "End of the World," "Survival Kit" and "Open in Case of Emergency." And so, as curios as a cat, I immediately opened it and found a bottle of AXE 2012 - The Final Edition together with a survival manual - an End of the World Survival Manual.

Hello, 2012!

I actually planned to post a year-ender blog - a blog that will how I hate 2011, but I think I'll just let this hatred past and just welcome the year 2012 with a positive vibes, big smile and a loving heart.

And to cut this first-blog-of-the-year short, lemme just share to you all this family picture that we had a while ago.

At the end of the day, or in this case, year, everything about me boils down to one major thing - FAMILY.

So, from us, the Dizons of Tondo, HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

May we all have a blessed year ahead! Keep loving! :-)
