(Sharing.. Living.. The Disheveled Child.)
Have you ever heard a story of a disheveled child?
Well look at him,
That expression of a big smile and a broad mind
Wearing a worn-out yellow shirt and tattered jeans
With a pair of his slippers missing.
...A software/ web developer
...An earthly entity roams around the parameters of blogging world
At the tip of his pen:
...he pushed the limits
I plead guilty of being a blogging, blog hopping addict. No second thoughts about that. I always have something "big" to tell what I thought about a blog or a blogger. By big, I mean somebody who's been on THE list. And there is this one blog that really struck me profoundly. A living proof of an exceptional blog. His name was all over the blog roll. And my pen couldn't resist, wanted to write a review for him.
One thing is certain, though, after hooking up with PR 4, too much traffic on his domain and ranked third in October Pinoy Blog of the Month, there's truth- and oh, most evidently- in the rumor that he is no doubt one of the most visited blog, one of the best blogger in the blogging world.
Conspicuous in his ways of creating an entry is the undeniable with this 1 year old lad blogger. He is no longer a body occupying space but voice, laughter, imagination. I can hear him now and I will continue to listen every time he wants to speak.
His words give him a face and he is not a child that has nothing to do with life after all.
He has a life!

My Wild Life Encounter @ Crocodile Park
Oh my, close that pangil (Crocodile Park's largest salt water crocodile) boy!
Yesterday, Irene, Catherine, Genevive, Samsia, Alexis, PJ, Ralph and I went to crocodile Park at Riverfront Drive, Corporate City, Diversion Highway, Ma-a, Davao City. We arrived at around 4 in the afternoon. It was a beautiful afternoon. It was a nice reward for nursing students who had a dead tired week of working the requirements and of course, duty. It was really fun. An amount of 100 pesos is worth!
I'm amazed with different animals like the eclectus parrot (below).
I also witnessed the Wild Life Encounter wherein the visitors are given the chance to interact with exotic petable animals and given the opportunity to take pictures with it.
Here are my shots taken during the encounter...
The Philippine Hawk- Eagle...
Carlo, the orangutan (I hope I spelled it right! Waaaa!)

Fun, Free and Full of Possibilities
These are three ingredients that make my October 27, 2007 a cut above the rest. At feeling ko, pinagkakaguluhan ako ng press... :-) Joke lang...
The 1st Mindanao Blogger's Summit at NCCC Mall Activity Center and the Blogger's Fellowship Night at Casa Habana are the most awaited events of my blogging years. Pegged on the theme, "Spotlight Mindanao: Blogging for Culture, Identity and Understanding", the one-day activity aimed to enhance the skills of blogging and its benefits, foster camaraderie among bloggers and of course to promote peace and understanding in Mindanao(re: the theme)... The occasion had a profound impact on each and every true- blooded blogger.
The two events was spearheaded by the Usual Suspects and participated by a hundred bloggers coming from Manila and Mindanao.
I arrived at around 11AM. Yes, I'm late... My apology. To tell you, di sana ako makapunta kasi supposedly may home visit ako related to my Psychiatric nursing sa Matalam and Makilala, North Cotabato but there's no signs na matutuloy, so I decided to join. At dahil na rin sa kakulitan ni Kuya Bryan. Thank you kuya Bryce! Heheh. Later ko na rin nalaman nang nasa Bansalan na ako na matutuloy ang home visit. So, I asked my permission to my group mates and my clinical instructor na di ako makasali. Buti na lang pumayag.
MBS1 was jammed by Kuya Migs. It was complemented by top-notch speakers who stamped their individual mark. Mr. Bob Martin's Blogging in Mindanao: Travel and Technology shared his Mindanao travels through pictures. Fr. Albert Alejo, SJ discussed about Socio- Cultural Mindset of the Mindanaoan. After a yummy lunch from Dimsun Diner, a special video greeting from Aillen Apolo and Matt Mullenweg were shown. Then it was followed with Kim Castillo's "Transition from "Emo" to Niche Blogging, Jayvee Fernandez's Blogging as a way of life: Problogging and new Media, Marc Macalua's How to Optimize your Wordpress blog for Top Search Rankings and ended with Session's with A-List Bloggers. And one more thing, I got also a chance to promote my blog and won an IBM notebook. Heheh, thanks Kuya Migs and Kuya Bloggie..
The blogger's fellowship night at Casa Habana was colored by Abet (a stand- up comedian) and of course, fabulous snacks! It was the night of all night.
After the fellowship, kuya Bloggie gave us a treat together with Kuya Bryan, kuya Mark Paul, kuya Ayel, Aethen, Mikko and Kuya Jayvee at Fwendz diner.
I have finally proven that the 1st Mindanao Blogger's summit and Fellowship night provided a nice avenue for bloggers across Mindanao and from Manila to be acquainted with each other.
A pat on the back of the people who worked hard during the summit and fellowship night. To the Usual Suspects, Special Event sponsors, Major Sponsors, Minor Sponsors and Donors, thank you very much!
Surely everyone enjoyed it and indeed, a great success!
Until next time... See yah!

My Psychiatric Nursing Exposure; DMH, Davao City
I'm currently here in Davao for my 3-week Psychiatric Nursing Exposure at Davao Mental Hospital (October 22 to November 9). So far, a lot has happened. Sorry, but I have no time to chronicle those experiences (maybe soon... very soon...). I just like to let everyone that I really enjoyed it. Ciao! God bless...
She's not into me!
I'm not really up to telling the sad story.
It was just like this...
There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone so nice and we just find ourselves so intensely attracted to that person. That feeling soon become a part of our everyday life and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than friendship or the feeling she might have for you is just too far from how you love her. We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer but in the end, our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up being sorry for ourselves...
I'm Joining the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 0.2In just three days, I will be leaving North Cotabato and head to Davao City. Yahoo!
I'd like to reiterate that I will be attending the Mindanao Blogger's Summit on October 27, 2007 at NCCC Mall of Davao City and the Fellowship night at Casa Habana. This is something I should not fail to attend. It is the best avenue for Mindanao bloggers to be acquainted with each other. I'm very excited for this aside from my Psychiatric Nursing Exposure in Davao Mental Hospital from October 22 to November 9. Thank God!, we have no scheduled activity for October 27.
