One day, I was with my mom in Maasim while she and her colleague were diving.
When she gets out the sea, I asked her if she bring something for me .
I was a bit disappointed when she brings nothing but a smile.
She told me that when I'm a grown up I will also be allowed to dive and would also decide not to bring anything that lives there. They're aquatic living things that is for the sea and not for playing like a toy
I understand that.
I'd like to see my self diving too, one day.

True love

true love is a commitment. It is not defined by the emotional high and lows, but by a decision to love, and that choice is sustained by an uncompromising will.

A home like paradise

For me, a home must be your paradise. It should be relaxing on seemingly endless stretches of a wonderful garden and a backyard. To some, their dream house must have a touch of an adventure. Exploring areas, hiking vegetation and also an evening spot where you and your family can spend the dancing away. But for many people, it's probably a mix of it all.

I already have an idea of what to recommend for those who wanted to have a home like paradise. They must visit the Grayhawk Real Estate. You only be needing your internet connection and your personal computer to take a view of different kinds of wonderful houses that will surely give you the taste of paradise.

Science Odyssey

When the radio was invented in 1895, the first signals could be recieved about a mile away. Adding an antenna to the radio increased the range to almost two miles. By 1897 radio signals could picked up nine miles away from the sender.

Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is about opening the heart. Leadership is about aspiration of oneself and of others. In the Philippines, I am still confused as to how our leaders understand that word. They all claimed to be intellegent but it doesn't show at all. I've never been so inspired hearing and seeing on television what they are now doing to our beloved country. ~Sighed~

When asked how do I view death, I said death is the beginning of life.
I just heard it somewhere but I actually don't know why it is the beginning.

My story today is about the dead person I saw yesterday inside the coffin. My mom stayed in the house of Tita Gladys while I tried to asked their neighbor if it is possible to take a glance to the man inside the coffin. That was the first I saw death.
I didn't felt scared but I'm just so confused why we all need to die.

In time I will understand.
I maybe confused because no one is explaining things to me but I know in time I will understand.
Meanwhile I have to live the day happily. I'm a kid so I deserved it!

My Mom's grandmom would always tell me sad stories about what happened to her friend during the Japanese Occupation. Some were raped and most were killed. Her eyes, even in her old age, would tell me the painstaking experience she had.
It brings me to read more aticles about the Philippine-Japanese War.

World War II and Japanese Occupation 1941 - 1945

Japan had already been at war in Manchuria (1931) and China (1937) long before the Second World War started in Europe when Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. By 1941, Japanese military expansion in the Asia-Pacific region had made confrontation and war with the United States increasingly certain.

In preparation for war, on July 26, 1941, General Douglas MacArthur brought the 12,000 strong Philippine Scouts under his command with the 16,000 American soldiers stationed in the Philippines. Even these combined forces were poorly trained and equipped for an adequate defence of the islands against a Japanese invasion.

The attack on the Philippines started on December 8, 1941 ten hours after the attack on Pearl Harbour in Hawaii. As at Pearl Harbour, the American aircraft were entirely destroyed on the ground. Lacking air cover, the American Asiatic Fleet in the Philippines withdrew to Java on December 12, 1941.

Japanese troops landed at the Lingayen Gulf on December 22, 1941 and advanced across central Luzon towards Manila. On the advice of President Quezon, General MacArthur declared Manila an open city on December 25, 1941 and removed the Commonwealth government to Corregidor. The Japanese occupied Manila on January 2, 1942.

MacArthur concentrated his troops on the Bataan peninsula to await the relief of reinforcements from the United States that, after the destruction at Pearl Harbour, could never come. The Japanese succeeded in penetrating Bataan's first line of defense and, from Corregidor, MacArthur had no alternative but to organize a slow and desperate retreat down the peninsula. President Quezon and Vice-President Osmena left Corregidor by submarine to form a government in exile in the United States. General MacArthur escaped Corregidor on the night of March 11, 1942 in PT-41 bound for Australia; 4,000 km away through Japanese controlled waters.

The 76,000 starving and sick American and Filipino defenders in Bataan surrendered to the Japanese on April 9, 1942. The Japanese led their captives on a cruel and criminal Death March on which 7-10,000 died or were murdered before arriving at the internment camps ten days later.

The 13,000 survivors on Corregidor surrendered on May 6, 1942.

For over three years and right to the day of Japan's surrender, the Philippines were to suffer grievously under the depredations of military occupation.

General MacArthur discharged his promise to return to the Philippines on October 20, 1944. The landings on the island of Leyte were accomplished massively with an amphibious force of 700 vessels and 174,000 army and navy servicemen. Through December 1944, the islands of Leyte and Mindoro were cleared of Japanese.

On January 9, 1945 the Americans landed unopposed at the Lingayen Gulf on Luzon and closed on Manila. The Japanese fought desperately, street by street, to hold the city. From February 3 to 23, its liberation took almost a month. When at last the fighting ended in the old Spanish citadel of Intramuros, Manila was in ruins.

Even after the capture of Manila, the Japanese fought on to the bitter end. The Americans made landings to remove the Japanese garrisons on Palawan, Mindanao, Panay and Cebu. The Japanese made their last stand entrenched in northern Luzon. General Yamashita, the Tiger of Malaya, did not surrender in Baguio until September 2, 1945; the same day as General Umezu surrendered formally for Japan on board the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

The liberation of the Philippines was costly. In the Philippines alone, the Americans lost 60,628 men and the Japanese an estimated 300,000. Filipino casualties are estimated at over a million and, sadly, these occurred mainly in the last months of the war when the final outcome had long been decided in any event.

The most serious long term consequence of World War II on the Philippines was to aggravate and embitter its internal social divisions. Prior to his departure for exile in the United States, President Quezon had advised Dr. Jose Laurel to stay behind and cooperate in the civil administration of the Japanese occupation. Whether it was good advice or not, President Quezon had hoped that with the cooperation of Filipinos, the occupation might be less severe. Following Laurel's morally ambiguous example, the Philippine elite, with regrettably few exceptions, collaborated extensively with the Japanese in their harsh exploitation of the country. President Laurel and his wartime government was despised.

On the contrary, the great majority of the Philippine people mounted a remarkably effective resistance to the Japanese occupation. Investigations after the war showed that 260,000 Filipinos had been actively engaged in guerrilla organizations and an even larger number operated covertly in the anti-Japanese underground. By the end of the war, the Japanese had effective control in only twelve of the country's forty-eight provinces.

The largest guerrilla organization was the Hukbalahap (People's Anti-Japanese Army) led by Luis Taruc. He had armed some 30,000 guerrillas who controlled most of Luzon.

By war's end, the members of the resistance firmly believed that the widespread collaboration and corruption of the well-to-do had discredited the ruling elite and that they had thereby forfeited any moral authority to govern.

The United States intended to restore the pre-war Commonwealth government. Luis Taruc and the Huks had well known socialist sympathies and communist associations. Despite their political affiliations, the Huks fully expected the American forces to treat them as allies and war heroes in recognition of their resistance and contribution to the war effort. Instead, the U.S. Army military police set out to disarm them as dangerous insurgents. MacArthur had Taruc arrested and jailed.

Why would they kill ?

Life is more important than the principle's that they were fighting for.

I wish to share my happiness seeing my grandma's mom visiting ud from Manila to General SAntos City. Lots of stories are in store for us everyday. She is very old but I love her. She listens to me and we talked more about everything.

Why can't life be perfect?
Why can't life be packaged up nicely, complete with an instruction booklet?
Why can't we see the future so we can make perfect decisions?
Smell the Roses!

Life is a road we travel.
Learning comes along the way.
If we cannot learn as we live, where is the gain?
Yes, there is pain and there is heartbreak, but there is also love and forgiveness.
Open your heart and enjoy your journey.

I like pink because it describes the love in my heart
when ever I feel pinky, it makes my world so wild
so wild that keeps my heart beats so fast
so fast that keeps my life colorful
its sounds like thunder when the night time falls in my bed
its sounds like slurrping when my mouth is eating an icecream
it sounds like water falling down in my skin when its shade touches my feelings
when I eat my favorite apple
I taste the pink color instead of red
I taste it like its in my tastebud when I was born
pink makes me feel great
happy and smiling
most of all it makes me feel always in the mood for love
pink makse me live like a sweet child forever

Too young

Inside my heart I wanted to tell her how it is that I felt.
But we are too young.
There are more things to be learn.
More things to explore.

This feeling will be held in abeyance first.
If we are meant to be, then we will be together in the end.
I wanted to feel
being carefree
I'm too young anyway!

When the daylights gone and your on your own
And you need a friend, just to be around
I will comfort you, I will take your hand,
I will pull you through, I will understand,
And you know that
I'll be at your side,
There's no need to worry,
Together we'll survive,
Through the haste and hurry,
I'll be at your side, if you feel like you're alone,
And you have nowhere to turn, I'll be at your side,
If life's standing still, and your souls confused,
And you cannot find what road to choose,
If you make mistakes you can't let me down,
I will still believe, I won't turn around,
I'll be at your side,
There's no need to worry,
Together we'll survive,
Through the haste and hurry

I'm a Bob Ong fan

I'm a Bob Ong fan. I read and enjoyed his books. His conviction leaves with me. The book maybe funny but it helps me understand my self more. I'm beginning to know what I wanted. It makes me carry my self better.
This afternoon, my teacher borrowed one of the book. She was entertained! Seeing her while reading my book made me smile.

My classmate doubted me in doing my blog. He said that it's not me who is writing here. I smiled and shrugged my shoulder. If Jhon Clark thinks it that way, then so be it.

Obedient leader

The man who commands efficiently must have obeyed others in the past, and the man who obeys dutifully in the past is worthy of being someday a commander.

I think we need that kind of man who will lead our country. I wonder where is he now?
My parents believes that our hope is to have access abroad. In New Zealand, they said is much nicer to live. I don't know but I always trust my life with them. Trusting it in my country's leadership is surely a wrong decision to make.
When I grows up, I hope to become a good citizen. My mom always remind me to be a good person.
