What does “HELP” mean to you…

It is with a intense feeling of sadness that i am writing this blog right now…

Calamities, storms, crises in our life is a always a WAKE-UP CALL….

People are complacent when their life is smoothly sailing….

People tend to be detached (or “un-attached” by choice) to the world, to their fellow citizens when their life is prosperous, calm and in abundance…

But when calamities and crises strike….it is only then that people tend to suddenly get awaken from slumbering bouts.

People get to help other people only whenever calamities and crises have stricken. Why does it have to be like that..??

Some people only HELP when there is a crises. And they announce their kind or type of “help”. It means, they help just for the sake of popularity.

They help not because they Love to help..but because ‘others’ are helping and they will be left behind in the scene if they ‘do not’ help and is afraid that their name would be tagged as ‘unhelpful’…so, they resort to ‘just help’.

Help is a vague word for some but for me, HELP is just a simple word to be exact!

For me , H-E-L-P is…

Help

Everybody

Live

Positively!

So when I say to myself “I NEED HELP!”..i get to be reminded of my own meaning of HELP…that is,

I NEED to Help Everybody Live Positively!

the P in my HELP can mean a lot of things…

P – roductively

P – rogressively

P – rosperously

..and all of these are Positive attributes 🙂

“I need help”  is more of GIVING help, rather than “expecting” to RECEIVE help.

I feel that by giving help – giving positive inspirations to people…, I receive help as well.

“It is only by giving, that we receive…It is only by sharing what we have, that we feel fulfilled”

What you sow, is what you reap…as the general saying goes.

I just wish and pray that every person, every being in this world of ours would have the same attitude on what HELP or HELPING is all about.

God bless all of you!

“Oh Exercise!..Oh Exercise!”…Why do we need you?

Unless you are an athlete, a beauty queen, a model, a celebrity, a gym addict, or a fitness buff…i would understand if you are lazy to do some exercise…like me!

At first, i thought, there are just so many things i can do other than exercise! Work, work, work…eat, eat, eat, then…sleep, sleep, sleep. Oh! …and Shopping in between! 😉

But nonetheless, we need to exercise no matter how busy we are or how lazy we are…

Here are 5 Essential Reasons why we all NEED to Exercise!

(explaining to you in a most simple and uncomplicated way…)

1) FOR DETOXIFICATION > sweat the toxins out!..when we sweat, the ‘undesirable things’ inside our system get flushed out! 

2) FOR BLOOD CIRCULATION > when we easily get tired and pant (..and do not have asthma ), it may mean that our blood is not circulating well..therefore, we need to exercise!

3) FOR STRENGTH > when we exercise, our muscles are ‘at work’, and therefore our muscular tissues get some tightening..when muscles are tight, they are firmer…when muscles are firmer, we get stronger…

4) FOR GOOD DISPOSITION and BEAUTY > when we exercise, the 3 above-mentioned reasons make us healthier and stronger..therefore, we can think well, because we do not feel any pain, ailments, and health disturbances. And when we are free of pain, we are not under stress. And when we are not stressed out, we feel relaxed. And when we are relaxed, wrinkles do not appear!

5) FOR SPIRITUALITY > when we exercise, our body auras get cleansed because we flushes out the negative energies. And when our auras are clean, BLESSINGS from God can penetrate to us and get materialized…provided that “we are good persons”.

Doing an exercise does not mean that we tire ourselves to the fullest…

A simple exercise of 7 counts for eye rotation, neck rotation, arms rotation, wrist rotation, body twisting, hips rotation, ankle rotation, knee bending and side bending would be enough…and it only takes about 5 minutes a day!!

FIVE MINUTES is all we need daily to start our day BRIGHT and LIGHT!

To exercise is to get the benefits of good health, beauty, clarity of the mind and calmness of our spirit…and the most important of all is, “Exercise is our first step in connecting with God!”

I am an Arhatic Yoga practitioner and a Pranic Healer. With my study at the Institute for Inner Studies and by becoming an active member of the World Pranic Healing Foundation, it was clearly explained to me the deep connection of EXERCISE to my SPIRITUALITY. It is only then that I realized how I missed a lot of God’s blessings in my life because I was lazy to exercise!

So now, my 5-minute routine daily exercise is no longer enough because i always want more blessings from God !!

Now you like a girl and she is a Filipina, what do you do next?

 

You wanted to make the first move by asking her for a date. Ooops! But you just can’t ask her for a date without getting to know her first.

 

Everything starts from exchanging pleasantries and good initial conversation. You must be cool. No aggressiveness please. Any sign of arrogance seen by a Filipina is a total turn-off. Just throw your arrogance to the ocean and never to a Filipino woman.

 

When you ask her for a date, either you:

1)    Ask her for casual lunch out (if you are mid 20’s and 30’s), an afternoon coffee and pastry date (if you are teenagers), and a formal dinner (if you are above 30’s)

 

2)    Give her something as a sweet gesture and gratitude that she said “Yes” to you for a date. These are normally flowers, chocolates, cute novelty items that you recently saw in the mall or giving her a gift certificate or passes or tickets (good for two) so that you can subtly signify your intent of getting another date with her again, you get what I mean guys.. 😉

 

3)    Ok, below are the list of possible tokens depending on the age of the Filipina woman and your age as a man.

 

 

Over Lunch

Over Coffee Time

Over Dinner

For the Family

Teenagers 15 – 20s

Chocolates, pastel color flowers

Chocolates, Cute Notebook or Notepads

One rose, everyday cologne, Stuffed Toy

Pastries or a Cake

Mid 20s – 30s

Novelty items like a cute character keychain, cellphone case, scarf

Datebook or Planner with cute ball pen, Starbucks Gift Certificate, Movie Pass

Dainty Flowers, Victoria Secret cologne, Branded perfume, Concert Tickets

Specialty Cake and a Huge Pizza

Adults 30s and above

Specialty chocolates, a bouquet of flowers, Gift Certificate to a Spa or Salon (that can be used on the dame day – an instant afternoon date follows)

Tickets to Musical or Stage Plays to be used on that night (a surprise date night immediately follows), a Gift Certificate to her favorite Coffee Shop or Pastry Shop

Either 3 red roses or a bouquet of Flowers, Branded Perfume, a designer shoes Gift Certificate, or a Gift Certificate to her favorite boutique, a pair of Earrings

Ice Cream Cake, Breads and Pastries and a Huge Pizza with at least 2 Big Bottles of Juices

 

The above are suggested things you can give her and her family during courtship. It makes a big difference if your gift comes on a right time and on the right budget. When you give her things, please do not forget to include her family in your budget. Why? ..because that is the modern-day-dowry for Filipinos. And why give her family the above suggested things? Because Filipino families are fond of convening together and having food around (good for sharing) is what makes them happy. Making Filipino family members happy is a plus point for you guys. In Filipino Language or Tagalog, it is called “pogi points” or “handsome/mansome points” in colloquial terms.

 

Filipino woman seeks approval from her family members and friends when she goes for a relationship; more so, before she steps into any engagement for marriage. If she does not have approval of her family and friends, she won’t be happy during your wedding even she loves you that much! Silently she would be smiling at the wedding, but deep inside her, her heart is getting small pinches because her family is not pleased. Guys, Filipinas are really loving, polite women. They will love you forever. They will be loyal to you. They will be the most caring spouse and doting mothers to your children. Only, if she is well pleased because her family is well pleased. 

 

Now, that is the family-factor side. Let’s talk about her and her alone. Filipinas love to be pleased, as I said. So here is the list on how you can really please her to make her fall for you.

 

1*talk to her nicely – Filipinas hate aggressive and harsh men. No foul words. No cursing. No shouting.

2*be patient with her – Filipinas will make you wait…accept that! That is a “test” Filipinas are giving to all men.

3*be generous to her – Filipinas do not like frugal men. Hey, we don’t ask for a “formal” dowry! “Generosity” for us is the modern-day-dowry. A modern-day-dowry or equivalent is expected by her and her family – something to signify a man’s sincere intention towards his lady.

4*say nice words to her like “I like your smile” “I like the way you walk” “I like it when you’re being honest” (Please say only those thing that you really mean, ok?)

5*help her – be a gentleman. Carry her things. Open doors for her. Offer to help her in her house chores – this is the best!…as this has been the original Spanish tradition in which Filipinas were used to < that men would bring them water from the well to the kitchen, men would chop woods for their wood fire cooking, etc> Modern day chores would be: Fix her fluorescent lamps, plugs, sockets, P-traps, toilet bowl flusher, faucets, doorknobs, locks, bag zippers, cellphone configurations, PC set-up, tablet applications, etc.

6*protect her – make her walk at the safer side of the sidewalk, likewise while crossing the street.

7*surprise her – bring her to a place she has not seen or been yet. Give her something she really likes.

8*be sweet to her – smile to her and pour water or wine in her goblet or wine glass. Hold her arms or hands when she goes up or down the stairs. Hold her bag for her when she is busy looking for something inside her bag. Wipe her lips for any milk moustache. Filipinas are naturally “malambing” women. Malambing means “sweet, caring, soft spoken and full of charm in her actions”.

9*be thoughtful to her – remember to text her even you are busy studying or working and just let her know that you remembered her or you remembered the moment when you were together.

10*be grateful – thank her for the “time” / “special moments” / her kindness / her sweetness / her thoughtfulness / etc…Just always be grateful.

 

Isn’t that exciting…I am already giving you lots of things to do huh.. 😀

 

When a man has fulfilled or has fully shown and proved to a Filipina those 10 things mentioned above, Likewise, Filipinas will be like those things also towards her man.

 

Being polite by saying “PO” and “OPO” to any Filipino elders for that matter is already “something”. Po and Opo when used to speaking to Filipina parents or to any elderly, are 2 most endearing words in which any man of any nationality can use to bring any Filipina heart closer to him. Example : (Man to a Filipina’s Parents) “How are you po?” “I hope I can visit your daughter again po”. “Thank you po.”

 

Well, these are just some of the things any man should consider in courting a Filipina.

 

I will write again and give you the guidelines on how to make a Filipina happy once you and her are already in a relationship, so that you! (the man) and your beloved Filipina lady will be forever happy 😉

 

Happy Courting Guys!…and wishing you the best!
