SNAKE AROUND ME



This is the first time I ever let a snake be real close like this to me... (i was too scared) but I decided to give it a try just to test my limits... the trainer or handler assured me twas safe...so I did anyway. I was screamin... and couldnt last three minutes...just enough time to take a pic... its a total weird feeling cuz i can feel his body crunching as it moves....they told me to touch the head and it faced me ...i saw his tongue and i was really scared.... i know im blushing bigtime and my stomach felt sick... but its worth a try.... at least i know how it felt.... 

I think Snakes are a very pitiful creatures of all... they don't have feet and arms just like other creatures. They cant run when there's a sight of danger...but crawl on their way to escape....Isn't that hard to do?
Come to think of it, people who are called a "SNAKE" wouldn't be called " it" for no reason.... those who have the SNAKE characteristics do much like what a snake does... crawl up, sneak up,etc... always discreet, but no one can hide things for too long.... Have u seen a SNAKE caught in the act?.....Go figure!

Taste of Bacolod

When one talks about Bacolod, the first thing that comes to mind is.... Chicken Inasal!!! They are so known for it. Bacolod is the capital and the largest city in the province of Negros Occidental. It has a total population of 499,497 as of August 1,2007. Considered as the most populous city in Western Visayas Region.

So, what's the reason for going there? My boyfriend has to attend a convention meeting. So, I packed the things needed for this trip. While inside the plane he took some snaps using my A580 Canon digital Camera.

See the clouds? I wonder how it feels to be able to touch the clouds with my bare hands....

Look how tiny the world looks from up there!

Finally here comes the destination...At the airport Lobby people seems to be rushing about, some still figuring out what window is next or where to go.If you're not going to be brave enough to ask for direction you'll be late with your appointments.

Fetched by a group of men with police escorts made me realize the importance of my boyfriend's presence in there, with police escorts?hello! But I don't want too much attention like that. It's not something Im used to have. When you're in one of that car being escorted by those police riding that motorcycle... you'll feel like a celebrity. Some would enjoy it... i think what I would enjoy is the ride without having to deal with long bumper to bumper traffic....


At THE BACOLOD PAVILLION:

Its just a newly opened hotel... so everything does look new and very very clean and soooo inviting!

After taking the shots, its time to deal what we came here for. The Conference. Everyone was following what was on the program. Some members were too busy talking to each other whenever somebody would go up in the stage to talk and sounded a bit boring. I confessed that I wasn't paying that much attention too. :P

The intermission number on that CONFERENCE HALL reminded me of my youth. I used to dance for the school program back then. This was the part where you'd get a "wake up" your senses feel after a long boring speech. :P

After the conference meeting which lasted till midnight, everyone was waiting to be able to rest their backs finally in bed. Since it was attended by more than a thousand participants everyone shares a room. The next day was spent on another agenda .


The real treat for me were the take home goodies!! It's not free but what's traveling to distant places if you're not going to bring home something that you can share to the people you'll come home to?
Here are my take home goodies:
Photobucket
Dried squid, danggit, and dilis.

Photobucket
Tarts,meringues,piyaya,tablea, banana chips etc...


These are the things I like about going to places... next stop? I don't know yet!
But I wanted it to be more closer to nature.....

Till next post. Have a great day to all!

MILK SCARE IN RP

I'm sure everybody heard the news about MELAMINE on candies and milk products from China, or any kinds of food made out of dairy and milk products. Here In my country , I'm just so glad our government acted on it at once.

BFAD ordered a ban for importing milk products from China. But you know how stubborn some people are. I'm sure there will be some who would still sneak and sell those to uninformed public...esp the poor who doesn't have access to information like me.

I'm just a little sad because I think our government agency who are in-charge of screening or testing products being imported should do their job before those products set foot in my country.
Same goes to Chinese Government, I hope they would be more careful in allowing products that will be exported to other countries to preserve good relationship!

YES... you heard me... I think they should have done this "before" not "after" those products were even shipped here. Imagine how much money invested on those? and now everything is put on hold unless all these testings are made and done with.

Its just  so upsetting , because the people ( which in this case Philippine government) were supposed to protect the interest of the buying public, what were they doing with those taxes paid to them?  Hmmm, sitting, sleeping and gossiping in their office?possible isn't it?

Isn't it disgusting to know that "SOME" of these Chinese Manufacturer continued producing products like these...putting ingredients that can cause damage to health, they aren't even thinking of how it will affect their costumer/consumer... Is this  the same reason why their labor is cheap? Is it because they don't pay for design royalty that's why everything is imitation of what is now POPULAR in the market?  and now the MILK SCARE which killed 4 of their own people and 50,000 more who had been reported ill.... and most were babies... those poor children! ( I only aid SOME and not EVERYONE ...) If u think its you I'm talking about then maybe its YOU!Shouldn't you at least do something about it and think of other people's welfare and not just your earnings here?

 If I were the president of my country I'll ban the  Chinese Manufacturer and Supplier that engaged in trading good as JUNK products here in my country. We are not pigs to eat your dirt. We are humans too... just like you.
 


... that's my two cent worth... let's hear yours...

REMINDER:

CHEAPER IS GOOD ONLY IF THE QUALITY STILL REMAINS!

TEXT JOKE/MESSAGE I GOT TODAY FROM A FRIEND:

Breaking News:
Philippines Health Authority Warning: All men are advised not to suck China girl's breasts as the milk may contain melamine!"

GOD made Heaven and Earth and all creatures and things that surrounds it.. but everything else...MADE IN CHINA :(
