My Experience with a Shark Meat

July 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Each time I come to a new place, I make it sure to try the new things around.  Could it be drinks that look strange to me and food that is unique in many ways.

As I passed by the grocery stand, with the label “Fish”. Scanned around the shelf and saw a fresh fish meat.  It is white and looks ok to me.  I was surprised when I saw the label, SHARK STAKE.

I have tried sharks fin in dumplings and even a shark fin soup.  But this time, it is quite obvious that this stake is really new to me.

So without any brain nerves working, I grab the meat and went to the counter excitedly.

Now, got a couple glimpse of the meat, still excited. I cut it into three parts, that will serve my breakfast and lunch for the following day.  Anyway, I sprinkled salt and pepper and fried it for 10 mins.

I once tried frying tuna but the meat gets so tough and not pleasant on your teeth, which gets stuck on it.  I tried salmon and it really taste good and the texture is slimy, which I like the most.

The Shark Meat is like a blue marlin’s meat texture.  When it is cooked and you cut the meat, it separates the meat tissues easily.  The color of the meat is white like the blue marlin. Are they in the same family?

What I don’t like about the Shark’s Meat is the aftertaste.  It tastes like iron, we’ll I really don’t know about my taste bud, but it tastes like it.  Maybe I’m just hovering my thoughts about sharks, but for me, I really had a bad first impression about this killer fish “Shark Meat”.

But what can I do about it, I have two more slices to eat tomorrow…

Goodbye Mr. RED FORD WHITE

July 25, 2010 Leave a comment

Millions of Filipinos watched him.  The laughter and fun in all his movies gave us the time to forget our problems.

Red Ford White in Buddy en Sol

He looks like not a common Filipino, who has a black hair and tan skin, but more like an American, with blond hair and white skin.  That is why he is famous as RED FORD WHITE from the 1970’s up to present.  His real name is Cipriano Cermeno.

Eventually, all humans have to return to his Creator. This time, at age 55, Cipriano “Red Ford White” Cermeno’s time has come.  He died due to complications from his lung and brain cancer.  He was sick since February and couldn’t recover. He will remain as the comedian that made all Filipinos happy and entertained. (gmanews.tv)

Watch his movie clips…

Goodbye Mr. Red Ford White and Thank YOU for all you’ve shared to us!

Jovit Baldivino’s Young Voice

July 24, 2010 Leave a comment

I Don't Love You

Voice comes from an early stage of human-hood.   This shows perfectly on Jovit Baldovino when he was just a young boy, wearing only slippers and usual shorts, singing the song “I Don’t Love You” by My Chemical Romance.

JOVIT BALDIVINO’S VERSION of “I DON’T LOVE YOU”

The Original VERSION (By My Chemical Romance):

“I DON’T LOVE YOU” LYRICS

BY My Chemical Romance

Well, when you go
Don’t ever think I’ll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I’ll be off to find another way
And after all this time that you still owe
You’re still a good-for-nothing I don’t know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out while you can
When you go would you even turn to say
“I don’t love you like I did yesterday”?
Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading
So sick and tired of all the needless beating
But baby when they knock you down and out
It’s where you oughta stay
Well after all the blood that you still owe
Another dollar’s just another blow
So fix your eyes and get up
Better get up while you can, whoa whoa
When you go would you even turn to say
“I don’t love you like I did yesterday”?
Well come on, come on!
When you go would you have the guts to say
“I don’t love you like I loved you yesterday”?
I don’t love you like I loved you yesterday
I don’t love you like I loved you yesterday

Working at Home is the Best Job Ever!

July 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Everyday, you wake up at 5am to warm your food, which you’ve cooked a night before.  And the early morning temperature of your bath freezes your spines.  You hurry up to wear your uniform and making it sure you have your ID with you.  You then wait for your bus to come by and sometimes can not get a ride when everybody are squeezed inside.  Then suddenly, you are stucked in a traffic jam, so scared to be late at work with your angry boss waiting at your office desk.

An Overseas Worker, earns thousands of pesos yet is away from his family. Holding a contract for one to three years without having a chance to see them.  If unlucky enough, gets harassment from the big boss and nothing to lean on to.

Then he realized and asked?  Is this the life and the kind of job that I wanted?

These are the common questions for most workers.  Could it be in the Philippines and overseas.  No choice but to stay away from the country or work away from home.

What if there’s an option behind all these?  The option that everybody could consider.

A group named WahPinas (www.wahpinas.com) was born.  This group keeps helping those who are working outside of their homes offering home-based jobs.  They have also created a Facebook Fan page to keep you updated of the new jobs at hand.  Go visit the site and join the Fan page and start Working At HOME!

The Reward of Loyalty

July 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Singapore Esplanade

Who will expect that one person may inherit millions of Singapore dollars just being loyal to her master?

A Filipina maid, age 47,  served her Singaporean master for 20 years and showed her natural attitude of not  leaving her Master until the end.  She is truly a loyal servant and deserves to get a reward of 6 million Singapore Dollars (P198M).

These news are not new to Filipinos especially when Honesty is the topic.  I can not say that all Filipinos are like this, but there are many who shows these kind of acts.  I remembered the news when someone returned thousands of cash and bags of jewelries without any doubts. This is such a heart-pounder to those who needs… MOTIVATION!

Philippines can make a difference in the world when her people are sharing the words, minds and works of a true FILIPINO!
