Her Freestyle, An Update

As everyone knows, Mj continued her training in swimming from her swim to learn last summer. Now her coach is correcting her strokes, especially when she has to do butterfly strokes. They already recommended her to buy a pool buoy, a paddle and a fins, these equipments would help the swimmer to do the strokes the right way.
Meanwhile here’s the video of my daughter doing the freestyle, she has been successfully finishing the entire program that her coach provided for her. She could finish 2001 lapse; 3 hours all in all, I hope she would continue her interest in swimming although sometimes she would complain when she had cramps or when her feet get numb when she does flatter kick.

And here she is after she finished the lapse, exhausted and cold lol.

He Was Gone at 16

Life is so precious when you are not taking good care of it, it would depreciate without you even notice it. The other week I was so surprised when the childhood friend of my niece and Mj’s friend as well, died in a cardiac arrest at 16. He doesn’t even have any history of heart disease it just happen so fast.

It has been two weeks that he was trying to exercise, for him to sweat more he would close all the window in their bedroom and wear two shorts in one hour, while he does a push up exercise. And every after he exercise, he would take a bath immediately or even after he plays basketball, he would go to the bathroom to take a shower.

It was Sunday when he did it again; he did push ups for one hour and went to the bathroom to take a bath. Since they had a basketball league in one of the barangays here, he went to the nearest basketball court to work out, he played for two hours. 5:00 p.m., came he went home and his mother told him to buy a rice in our store, he did but my niece Moreen noticed him seems so weary and tired. But she did not give any attention to it, she even joke him around, she laugh yet he only smiled. At 5:30 p.m., he bid farewell to his Mom and he even asked her a fare, mostly he would complain when his Mom will give him only enough, oftentimes he would demand for more but that day he just turn around without even saying a word. Around 6:00 p.m., him and his team mates were invited to take dinner in one of his friends, 7:30 p.m., the game started but in just about 5 minutes he asked for a time out. His friends wondered because he usually don’t asked for a time out, he never get easily tired in playing basketball but that time it was so strange of him to ask for a rest. He asked for water but it was delayed and the referee already called them to start the game again. When he was already at the court, he suddenly fell down, he closed his eyes and his body gets numb, his friend tried to give him a CPR but when they feel his pulse they cannot hear a beat anymore. They did their best to send him to the hospital but the doctor stated “Dead on Arrival”.

His Mom came and she asked the doctor to revive it again, she cried so hard, she knew his son was still fighting but he did not cooperate at all. When she finally said goodbye to his son, he slowly closed his eyes. It was so horrible, only a month ago when I asked him what course he took, he even asked my niece Mariel of her phone number and asked her if they could be friend in Facebook, he laugh with my two niece only a month ago but due to some things, that is sometimes it is hard to explain, he was gone at 16.

American Taxi Drivers in the Philippines

When I was browsing in visa journey a while ago I was curious of this video I found there. And the moment I open the video I can’t stop laughing. Two American men trying to do a transportation business, imagine 10 pesos for a taxi that is quiet so affordable but I guess no one believe in them, they thought they were just making fun out of it. Until they gave up and said “Aircon na libre pa”, check and you will find out.

Couples Corner : Talented Couple

Rodliz’s Nest

My husband is a computer geek, he is always on the rescue whenever I have a problem with my computer even though he is too far away from us I never hire for a programmer to reformat my computer because I can ask him to help me even online. My husband does not look like he knows everything, but when you start asking him, you will be surprise of how intelligent he is.,

And as for me, my talent I guess is to bug or kulit him around with stuff; well I have my reasons though. My friend said I can also be techie but geez it took me a day to figure out with codes or decodes etc. If that matters interest me, expect me patiently to try until I will know the solution but if it does not interest me at all, no matter how simple it is I can never fixed it. If you can call it a talent when I know a person is lying well, maybe I have that talent also.

When I was in college, I always joined to a dance contest in our organization, sometime we won, sometimes we don’t. Mj loves dancing, she can wiggle her hips so well, maybe that’s one talent she got from me. I am not sure if I can do the dancing once again, I guess I am fully retired with it.
