Merck's Fertility Awareness Campaign 2017

Merck remains committed to changing lives of couples with fertility problems
through the Fertility Awareness Campaign, now on its fifth year. 

MANILA, Philippines, October 2017- When you think of babies, first thing that come to mind is the feeling of happiness – of blissful parents cuddling their adorable little one – nothing short of perfection. 

Unfortunately, not all couples share the same feeling, especially for the 15% of the population who are suffering from fertility problems. 

Infertility is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), as “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.”

Eatsilog: Not just another silog

The first time I visited Eatsilog, located at  A. Canaynay Avenue, San Dionisio, Sucat, ParaƱaque City. I thought it was hard to reach. It is near Llanas Supermarket and if you like some walking it is near SM. The red color will be your guide.

Like any silogs their food are affordable but also well made. It is a step better than your regular silog. All the recipes are from Chef Oen Francisco and his partners Ms. Lexie Go and Mr. Dennis Pangilinan.

Going back to "7 Flavors" because why not?

And once again I am back to this wonderful restaurant in San Juan called 7 Flavors. I am eating now with more friends and other regulars of the restaurant. Aside from the 7 flavors you can experience and encounter I learned about their three goals, presentation, quality and good taste.

Before the start of the meal I was lucky enough to get pictures before everyone jumped in. 

Sorry but I start with the desserts.

President Rodrigo Duterte's SONA 2017: The battle cry for murder, hypocrisy, fake data, and the drug war

It is another year and the Poong Messiahd (a pun on the word Messiah and the tagalog word may sayad, which means crazy), the great overlord of death, Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Dutertards (Duterte fanatics) and the bobotantes (stupid voters) held his second SONA (State of the Nation Address) or hate speech because he thinks its cool to be bad-ass and idiots like the drama.

I will take everything into consideration and see what matters or what have you. I didn't listen to the actual speech because believe me it's very hard to understand the accent, enunciation of the Mahal na Nazeraan (a pun on the Black Nazareen and sira, wich also means crazy). 

Sumaatin nawa ang banal na putangina. (May the holy son of a bitch be with us.)

Following is a full transcript of that SONA, as delivered:

Kindly sit down. Thank you for your courtesy.
When I was a member of Congress, I… my seat was over there. The seat… the lady with a violent — not violent but rather violet dress… seated. But I was always absent, together with the Speaker and Tonyboy Floirendo, who is still absent until today. [LAUGHTER] And that started… Ay nandiyan ba? Sorry. But his propensity started almost 17 years ago when we were members of the 11th Congress.
Here he is proud to be always absent. He got paid for being absent. As if that is a skill similar to what Manny Pacquiao has been doing consistently since he became a politician. So being lazy is a virtue for Duterte. Also his joke is lame. Politicians have no sense of what a good joke is.
