Our mind and brains are big help to our own body. We think a lot of things from work to simple jokes and so on and so forth.According to Wikipedia a mind collectively refers to the aspects of intellect and consciousness manifested as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will and imagination; mind is the stream of consciousness. It includes all of the brain’s conscious processes. It comes hand in hand with your brain, whatever is in your mind and you want to do it, it will process it. A powerful tool of our body.

A beautiful mind

What are you thinking right now?your future, your work, your family. Thinking too much would stress your mind but using it properly will give you good results. Human brain controls the central nervous system (CNS), by way of the cranial nerves and spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and regulates virtually all human activity (according to wikipedia). I’m not good in sciences but I do understand a bit, well some of our medical friends out there knows what I’m talking about. A brain check up and medicine is too expensive unless you have a health card. Sometimes we forgot things we come to a point that we are getting older or we need a vitamins like memory plus. I’ve been to one of our modern hospitals that especializes with brains, Cardinal Santos Hospital in San Juan Greenhills. The place is beautiful with all doctors that are very good at the same time with beautiful nurses, of course the price is high, you need a reservation fee just to be an in patient. How about poor people who dont have money can they afford to be hospitalized or even experienced to have a check up. You want a good life, you need to work for it but here in our country even if you work like a carabao (National animal that symbolizes working hard) you cannot eat or do what rich people can, you cant blame Filipinos going abroad.

I’ve read this article from Philippine Star it gave me an understanding about brains Read the rest of this entry »


Friendster – top online network service

January 5, 2008

My family were talking about the vacation that we had last Christmas in our home province of Tarlac when suddenly the topic goes to friendster. I sometimes tell stories about my friends, officemates, batch mates, relatives and more friends that I have contacts using it. It is indeed a great help to people using online network services but some abuse it. Of course friendster has received competition with all in one sites like MySpace, Windows Live Spaces, Bebo, Yahoo! 360, Facebook, hi5 and Yaari. According to Nielsin Online, friendster was already overtaken by MySpace in terms of page views but it is still the leading network services in Asia and for me. It currently has over 50 million users and is mostly used in Asia. Checked Wikipedia for more info and history.

Balik tayo. I was talking about my nieces adding me as their friends. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you’re not yet a member of friendster. My daughter ask me to help her be a member so that she can also add her cousins and Ate’s. Of course, I need to guide her because she is still new in this kind of things. I became a member of it last Feb 2006 but at first I used it to view other members which some are doing. (Kasi plastic lang yung iba sa mga pictures, kaya I made it a private membership). I don’t post anything just a plain text on my membership but after a year I suddenly post a picture and some of my batch mates and friends are e-mailing me to add them as friends, that’s when I found the joy of using it (hanep! what a joy). I come to know what happened to them, what they look like and are they still alive. hehehe!

It’s fun, try it! a chance to meet old friends.
