Why I want to win an Air-con unit?

When my wife was still pregnant with our son, I wished that he would not get the three dreaded “H” that I posses--- “hika, hight (I’m just 5’3) and handsome-maangmukha”

A year later, we were blessed with a boy who has a face as cute as his mommy and he looks taller than the other babies in our place who are just the same age as he is. But the downside is, he has asthma.

Last December, we almost spent our son’s first-ever Christmas in the hospital due to pneumonia. It was a blessing that after 10 days of confinement, he was able to survive and we got our release slip on the 24th.

Until now, my son is taking some medications and maintenance to reduce his asthma attacks. The summer heat and wrath of El NiƱo also cause him to have a hard time breathing from time to time. So the doctor recommended that if possible, we should have an air-condition unit in our room.

And that’s the reason why I want to win the Gree air-conditioner courtesy of The E-zone. The money that we can save in buying a unit can be used for his other needs.

If we win, our home will surely be filled with hahahas, hehehes and hihihis!

Coca-Cola Para sa Oras-Oras Happiness Winners (March 2010)

I've been reading and hearing request for the posting of the list of winners of the Coca-Cola Para sa Oras-Oras Happiness Promo.

Then, I saw a spread print ad of the list of winners yesterday at Philippine Star so I thought of scanning the list of winners (per day) and sharing it to answer the plea of those who joined the promo. And so here are the list of winners (Feb 2010):

The Feb 201 winners list can be found at Mapanghingi Ka ba?

Humor Me Makoy Contest

This is my entry to the Humor Me Makoy Contest. I have been following Makoy's blog because I like his writing style--- simple and with humor. Last year, Makoy posted a funny entry on how he celebrated his birthday. Check out Not So Lonely Birthday and it will definitely make you smile. My favorite part is when he mentioned that he had miswa that day. At least it's still noodles. So Pinoy! Ankulet! Just like my Nanay who never forget to remind us to cook something pansit or spaghetti on our birthday! Hmmm...Maybe that's one of the secret of Makoy and his blogs' longevity? :-)

His post also reminded me of a funny incident that happened more than a decade ago. My friend asked me for gift suggestions for the father of his girlfriend who lives in the province. He plans to go with his GF to visit her father but he wants to buy the old man a gift so their first meeting would start on a good note.

I told my friend to buy something that his future father-in-law can use. He agreed with the idea and called up his GF to ask what her father do for a living. We were in a mall that time and he was having little trouble talking to her over the phone. But my friend was able to hear that her father was a carpenter. So, he bought a new set of chisels, hammer and a saw from a hardware store and wrapped 'em in a big box sealed with a kiss.

A week later, I received a text message from my friend. He texted that although the old man finds his gifts useful, he can't use any of 'em at work since he is a Car Painter and not a Carpenter.
