I can exceed my limitations!

I can exceed my limitations! Man is the only creature that strives to surpass himself, and yearns for the impossible - Eric Hoffer

My ultimate favorite sports hero is the pride of every Filipino worldwide- Emmanuel "Manny" Dapidran Pacquiao. He was born on December 17, 1978 in General Santos City.

Manny Pacquiao had successfully exceeded his own athletic limitations by winning eight-division World Championships in which he won ten world titles in the field of boxing!  Manny Pacquiao is the first ever Filipino Boxer to win the Lineal Championship in four different weight classes. Beat that! He exceeded everyone's expectation. Broke all records of all Filipino Boxers! For me, Manny Pacquaio is the greatest Filipino Boxer of all times.

He had come a long way from being a plastic bag vendor in Polomolok, South Cotabato, where he spent a year during his elementary days helping out his aunt.

Manny Pacquiao is an epitome of a Filipino who dream big and exceeded not only his own expectation but by that of everyone else. Manny Pacquiao's success is tremendous that I doubt it, if any Filipino could follow in his footsteps for the next 100 years.

Manny Pacquiao's workout are focused on the development of these three things:
  1. Speed
  2. Power
  3. Intelligence
As we all know, Manny always knocks out his opponent early in the rounds. But he had also showed the world that he can last up to the last round. He has an amazing stamina, strength skills and speed.

A little trivia: When I created this blog way back in 2009, would you believe that I posted not about my travels but the live streaming videos of my favorite boxer Manny Pacquiao's fight?

I believe, that just like me, Manny Pacquiao also make sure that he has an odor protection in any sport/athletic/fitness activity he does be it boxing or basketball. Of course, he doesn't want to be labeled as the one with a rotten smell. Geez!
I personally use safeguard, so my confidence in the product is really high. Remember, Safeguard Active won’t let bad hygiene distract you from exceeding your athletic limitations and in beating your personal best!
Having an active lifestyle, one should not forget about proper hygiene. You can do all physical sports and at the same time not letting bad hygiene stop you!

Interesting fitness tips and activities of Manny Pacquiao from boxing insider:
  • Warm up!
  • Stretch before and after each workout.
  • Keep your posture straight always.
  • Make sure you are doing each exercise correctly, using good form.
  • Begin low.  
  • As you gain strength, increase reps first.
  • Make sure you exercise all muscle groups equally.
  • Exercise larger muscles first, then smaller ones. The reason behind this is that larger muscles takes more energy to work, so you want to work them at the beginning, when you are all fresh and relax. 
  • Rest is essential. Strength training causes microtrauma to the muscles; healing this microtrauma is what builds muscle tissue and strength. It takes 24-48 hours after a workout for the healing to be complete, so it’s important to rest each muscle group for 24-48 hours between workouts. 
  • No pain. Period. Pain during a workout is a sign that you are using incorrect technique, that you have some prior injury or that you are overtraining. Pain after a workout is a sign of overtraining. It is normal to have some mild soreness for 24-48 hours after your first few workouts, but pain that is more severe, that persists past 24 hours or that continues as you get stronger suggests that you may have an overtraining injury.
Safeguard Active with 12-Hour Odor Protection. Safeguard Active won’t let bad hygiene distract you from exceeding your athletic limitations and in beating your personal best!

Official statement of Tutuban Properties Inc. Re: Cluster Building "Fire Out"

Official statement of Tutuban Properties Inc. Re: Cluster Building "Fire Out"

Updated Statement

7 September 2012

Ikinagagalak na ibahagi ng Tutuban Center na mula kaninang ika 1 ng umaga,
idineklara ng Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) ang "Fire Out"  status sa
Cluster Building . Kasalukuyan ding ginaganap ang "mopping-up operations" sa
mga oras na ito.

Nais din naming pasalamatan ang mga magigiting na kalalakihan at kababaihan
ng BFP sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni General Santiago Laguna, pati na din ang mga
miyembro ng mga iba't-ibang volunteer firefighting organization dahil sa
kanilang walang sawang pagtulong. Nais din naming pasalamatan ang suporta ni
Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Rico Puno,
Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, at ang Manila Police District.

Dahil sa balitang ito, ang mga tagapamahala ng Tutuban Center, kasama ang
mga Cluster Building Tenant Association, ay maaari nang itutok ang atensiyon
nito sa pangangalaga ng mga pangangailangan ng mga tenant.

Maaari na ding makipag-coordinate ang mga tenant sa Tutuban Center Building
Administration o magtungo lamang sa Cluster Building Help Desk na
matatagpuan sa Loop Road Skybridge A.

Nagpapatuloy na din ang normal na operasyon sa Centermall, Prime Block,
Robinsons Supermarket at Robinsons Department Store.

Patuloy din kaming umaasa na aming malalampasan ang pagsubok na ito at
magsimulang magtrabahong muli para sa isang bago at maliwanag na bukas.
Press Release
6 September 2012- 10am

Collective efforts of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and volunteer firefighters have not ceased since the fire broke out early yesterday morning at Cluster Building. At 10 am today, BFP officials have declared the fire control.

So effective 10am today, Centermall 1 and 2 and Prime Block buildings have resumed normal or "business as usual" operations, including the Robinsons department store and supermarket. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the resumption of operations will in no way hamper fire control efforts.

We believe that the current situation is but a minor setback in the redevelopment of Tutuban Center. Management affirms its commitment to move towards a new and revitalized Cluster Building.

InnerShine® Berry Essence

The Seven Super Berries
BRAND'S® InnerShine® Berry Essence is a delicious fruit-based, ready-to-drink essence with extraordinary health benefits

When I first read about InnerShine® Berry Essence I got really interested. I told myself, I ought to try this real soon. Who wouldn't? Imagine the wonders it does to one's body! It gives you a 
  • Clearer, sharper vision. 
  • Age-defying, healthier-looking skin. 
  • Better protection from free radical damage.
This isn't a list of some superhero's extraordinary powers. It's only a sampling of the many health benefits that come with every bottle of the new InnerShine® Berry Essence (IBE).

Made by BRAND'S®, a company with a pioneering presence in the health and wellness industry for the last 170 years, InnerShine® Berry Essence is a delicious fruit-based, ready-to-drink essence that serves as a natural source of vital nutrients and powerful antioxidants. It contains the goodness of seven premium types of berries from Europe and the U.S.—acai berry, bilberry, blackcurrant, chokeberry, cranberry, elderberry, and strawberry—combined to form an exclusive "super berry" blend, providing health, nourishment, and protection in ways that no other fruit-based drinks can.

Available at all the following stores in the Greater Manila area:
  •  Watsons
  •  Landmark supermarkets
  •  and Mercury Drug
SRP of P85 per bottle, BRAND'S® IBE is also fortified with Vitamins A, C, E, and zinc. It contains no added artificial colorings or preservatives, and bursts with an irresistible all-natural taste that also remains unrivaled by regular diet drinks and artificial supplements.

IBE’s Seven Super Berries

The seven super berries make every bottle of InnerShine® Berry Essence the perfect nutritional drink in today's increasingly stressful modern environment. As you carry out a very hectic and stress-filled work day facing the computer for long hours, exposure to many types of environmental pollution, spending late nights at work, and other situations that may create problems for both your skin and eyes, IBE works to deliver special benefits that promote supple and smooth skin and clearer and healthier vision. The berries, in fact, each have rich antioxidant qualities that help protect the skin and eyes from free radical damage, such as that caused by UV radiation, environmental pollution, and heavy visual workload.

Apart from shielding the eye cells, which make up the human body's most delicate and sensitive sense organs, BRAND'S® InnerShine® Berry Essence also packs vital nutrients that help improve overall health as well as support one's ability to have a beautiful, well-nourished body. The exotic acai berry has been heralded for centuries for the many benefits it brings to the body. Not only is it extremely high in anthocyanins, it has powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors.
The rare bilberry fruit from northern Europe, just like the acai berry, is also rich in anthocyanins to strengthen and protect the eyes’ blood vessels and help lessen eye fatigue, while the blackcurrant further enhances eye health with its unique ability to synthesize a biological pigment called rhodopsin (or "visual purple") that enables vision in low-light conditions.
Filtering intense sunlight and providing increased protection from constant exposure to UV radiation is the role of the chokeberry, a shrub fruit native to eastern North America. Thanks to its high levels of anthocyanins and flavonoids, chokeberry is also known as a dietary deterrent against diseases caused by oxidative stress.

Cranberry, on the other hand, is a nourishing fruit with a balanced profile of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, manganese, and essential phytonutrients. They are known to help protect the body from free radical damage, optimize urinary tract health and provide important anti-inflammatory benefits. Also with similar health-boosting capacities is the elderberry, which helps boost the immune system by driving the production of cytokines, the cell-signaling proteins used to regulate immune response. 

Rounding out the IBE's set of seven super berries is the sweet, bright red strawberry. Like the cranberry and elderberry, it packs Vitamin C, dietary fiber, and phytonutrients. Strawberries have also recently been linked to the prevention of heart disease and diabetes, while stimulating proteins with antioxidant qualities.

Specially formulated with these seven super berries, BRAND'S® delicious new InnerShine® Berry Essence indeed packs a healthy punch. A chilled bottle a day of IBE not only serves to build a strong foundation for a lifestyle of health and wellness; it also brings the thought of having extraordinary powers closer than we can ever imagine.

TITO SOTTO: Opppsss He Did It Again!

TITO SOTTO: Opppsss He Did It Again!

Comedian and now Senator-elect Vicente"Tito" Sotto's Privilege Speech today, September 5, 2012 side by side with Robert F. Kennedy’s speech during Day of Affirmation, June 6 1966.

Robert F. Kennedy:

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Vicente Sotto III:

Iilan ang magiging dakila sa pagbali ng kasaysayan, subalit bawat isa sa atin ay maaaring kumilos, gaano man kaliit, para ibahin ang takbo ng mga pangyayari. Kapag pinagsama-sama ang ating munting pagkilos, makalilikha tayo ng totalidad na magmamarka sa kabuuan ng kasaysayan ng henerasyong ito. Ang mga hindi-mabilang na iba't ibang galaw ng katapangan at paninindigan ang humuhubog sa kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan. Tuwing naninindigan tayo para sa isang paniniwala, tuwing kumikilos tayo para mapabuti ang buhay ng iba, tuwing nilalabanan natin ang kawalan ng katarungan, nakalilikha tayo ng maliliit na galaw. Kapag nagkasama-sama ang mumunting galaw na mga ito, bubuo ito ng isang malakas na puwersang kayang magpabagsak maging ng pinakamatatag na dingding ng opresyon.

Sought for an answer for the alleged Tagalized version of the former US Senator's speech, Sen. Tito Sotto said he was not aware that the passages came from a Kennedy speech. He said a friend texted it to him then he had it translated in Tagalog.

The senator only laughed off the allegation that he copied from a Kennedy original. "Marunong na palang managalog si Kennedy ha," he said. "Sino ngayon ang kinopyahan ko na Tagalog? Meron ba silang alam na pinanggalingan na tagalog nun?" he asked.

Mukha ho yatang napapadalas na Senador Tito Sotto III. Sino ho ba ang gumagawa ng mga speech ninyo? Maari mo na po yata ninyong sibakin yan. Masyado ho niya kayong nilalagay sa kahihiyan hindi lamang sa sambayanan Pilipino kungdi sa buong mundo.

Buti ho kami ay hamak na BLOGGER LANG, eh kayo ho ay isang kagalang galang na senador, ang labis na panggagaya ang maghahatid sa inyo sa putikan este kapahamakan dahil pwede ho kayong matagurian na "Plagiarist". Pwede mo naman pong i quote, basta may attribution.

Maaaring ipinagkikibit balikat lamang po ninyo at pinagtatawanan ang nakaraang panggagaya ninyo sa mga sinulat ng isang Amerikanang blogger dahil sa estado at posisyon ninyo sa senado. Pero pag isipan po ninyong mabuti kung ano ang dulot ng pang aalipusta ninyo sa mga hamak na blogger lang na yan. Pinapansin at napapansin na po ang mga sinasabi ninyo. Pag isipan mo pong mabuti bago kayo magbukas ng bibig. Pag-aralan po ninyo kung ang inyong mga sinasabi ay sadyang galing sa kaibuturan ng inyong apdo este puso.
Bakit po ba puro mga sinulat ng mga taga Amerika ang laging ginagaya ng inyong tagasulat? Gayahin naman po niya ang Pinoy. Tangkilikin ang sariling atin. Go Pinoy!

Tagalog translation of ripples on google: galaw, bulwak, kulo.

Ripple of hope should not be translated verbatimly. Ripple of hope simply means "Nagbibigay ng kaunting pag-asa" and not "Kaunting galaw". You should tell that to your translator po.

Geez, I can't help reacting. Opps, may I go out now Siree.

Bawal akong ma stress.
