While contemplating the disasters happening in the Philippines, I can’t help remembering my previous accidental stay in a neighboring hotel in Makati – during one of the powerful floods that ever hit Luzon just last year.  Since our house in San Antonio Village cannot be accessed by my visiting friends from Cebu due to the flooded entrances – as they were scheduled at that time to arrive the next day, I searched over the internet for the best deals I could find. I found this 24h Apartment Hotel in Makati from Agoda. This video does not do justice with regards to my wonderful experience there:

24h Apartment Hotel, Makati, Philippines Hotel

Apart from the 24h arrangement wherein you do not have to worry about check-in and check-out time because the 24 hours stay starts from the time you checked in and expires at the same time the next day – it was no sweat for me to take care of my guests. They were transported from and to the airport at minimal rate, good food were served anytime they need to dine, accommodated in a clean but well-equipped rooms and treated like a family member when safety measures were imposed during the calamity. Will write the details of the experience in my next blog. Try the 24h Apartment Hotel when visiting Makati.

Philippine Quake Destroyed Tourism Destination

No Filipino or tourist who had been to Bohol can bear witnessing the historical churches and preserved ancient spots becoming pieces of ruins as captured in CCTV videos and amateur cameras. It was the strongest earthquake that ever hit the area. Many speculations that this act of God is a punishment but it’s again proven that the faith of the Visayans particularly the Boholanos and Cebuanos goes a long way beyond religion. They do not need those structures to show love to one another – despite the hardship that they are going through. Here you can see genuine sacrifices like feeding the young ones first with whatever they can get – divided into a spoonful of rice each and so on. Let’s examine the data why, it’s called the deadliest:

Bohol quake among deadliest in Philippine history

By: Camille Diola

MANILA, Philippines – The 7.2-magnitude earthquake, which so far has more than 150 fatalities and heavily damaged well-known landmarks in Central Visayas, would go down in history as among the country’s deadliest quakes and the second most powerful in the 21st century. http://www.philstar.com/headlines/2013/10/16/1245986/bohol-quake-among-deadliest-philippine-history



If this is an act of God, this calamity shows then that He still loves His people dearly. Given that the earthquake struck during a Muslim Feast which is a non working and non schooling holiday. It was not also on a Sunday when churches normally are filled with Catholic patrons. Imagine the schools with children inside them or the churches with church goers attending masses! It could be worst. We are all sinners and it’s time to examine ourselves if we have lived God’s purpose for our existence – regardless of religion.

Polluted Air is Cancerous


welcome

Air pollution is rampant all over the world especially in developing countries where people strive hard to excel in their industry for money. It may be disturbing to know this report from CNN that polluted air is indeed cancerous. Think about it! Major steps must be done by the government to at least help minimize air pollution. We can’t just stop breathing every now and then – to lessen our intake of these dangerous gasses. There must be something we can do but before that, read this report:

Air pollution causes cancer, world health authority says

By:  Ben Brumfield

(CNN) — The air many of us breathe poses serious health risks, the World Health Organization says. On Thursday, it added cancer to the list.

Air pollution is a now officially a carcinogen, and there are no caveats about the new classification..http://www.cnn.com.ph/2013/10/17/health/geneva-air-pollution-carcinogenic-who/index.html?hpt=he_c1#cnn-disqus-area

 



Sometimes, the air pollution saga becomes controversial – with some people saying that the cancer scare is just a propaganda by greedy business manipulators to be able to sell their health products for example. Others say that carbon dioxide emissions from substandard fuels are really not that bad but again, we are allegedly being brain washed by the massive advertising campaigns of improved gasoline giant traders. It may be true that money is the motivator of all these – but think again. We know for a fact that bad air is unhealthy ever since time immemorial. So, the best thing that we can do is to start conserving energy from our very own home and contribute in cleaning up the air by living as basic as we can
