Waiting Outside The Lines

Standard

I am a type of person who tries to comfort myself by listening to songs that fit my mood. If I’m in a happy-dancy mood, then EDM tracks are my partner for a day. If I just wanna relax and chill, I turn to Coldplay, One Republic, Hale, and the likes. Yeah, my song playlist varies depending on my mood.

Recently, I was on a depression state, due to several problems exisiting in my mind at the same time. As usual, I am trying to ease myself by listening to music, especially when I’m alone. Then, I remembered this song by Greyson Chance that was released last 2010. Below is the song I am talking about:

Protect the Thresher Sharks! Sign the Petition!

Standard

Thresher shark is my favorite shark specie. I love them because of its majestic tail, which not only looks beautiful when it swims, but because of ita unique function and how the thresher sharks use it for their survival. Basically, the tail acts as a whip that the shark uses to stun its prey, mostly small fishes and squids.

Back in Cebu, thresher sharks can be found in the famous Monad Shoal, located near the island of Malapascua. The island itself is famous for being a diving spot, that’s why many tourist, both local and foreign, are storming into the island to plunge the waters of Malapascua. Of course, a lot of these visitors wanted to experience a surreal encounter with the thresher sharks in the wild. These activities helped the locals greatly in terms of income and livelihood. Indeed, thresher sharks are a gift to the people of Malapascua

Free call for Cebu ferry disaster survivors

Standard

I was really saddened when I heard the new about the collision between MV St. Thomas Aquinas of of 2Go Shipping Lines and MV Sulcon Express 7, a property of Philippine Span Asia Carrier Corporation (PSACC, formerly called Sulpicio Lines). The collision took away the lives of more than 30 people, including the young and the helpless ones. It really gives me pain in my heart everytime I see this tragedy in the television, and read some of the updates over Facebook News Feeds and different Internet sites. As a freediver, I honestly want to take part in the search operation, but with my current skills in freediving, it is impossible for me to reach the 100 feet sea bed, where the MV St. Thomas Aquinas is lying right now.

But as a blogger, this is my way of helping the victims of the tragic incident: to share a very helpful way for the survivors to communicate with their families who are really worried about their situations.

Globe has actually set up areas where survivors can call their love-ones from any local, national and international numbers for free. The first Globe Libreng Tawag Center is located in Pier 4 Terminal in Port Area, where about 300 passengers are temporarily staying right now. The second Libreng Tawag Center is situated in Sugbutel, a hostel which also gives shelter to other passengers who survived the collision. Calls and texts made at any Libreng Tawag Centers are free of charge and will be stationed at the mentioned sites until the situations gets stable.

I salute Globe for having this wonderful idea. This is really indeed helpful especially for the victims of the tragedy for them to relay to their families and friends that they are safe and sound. With these Libreng Tawag Centers, communication between the survivors and their families is not a problem anymore.

Japanese Eating at Joed’s Lutong Hapon

Standard

Guys, you must check out this Japanese food hub that I know. This food hub offers authentic Japanese dishes in an affordable price. If you have already dined in this place I’m talking about, then you’ll agree with me. If you haven’t, then go and check out Joed’s Lutong Hapon.

Joed’s Lutong Hapon, like I said, offers the best foods of the Land of the Rising Sun, from different choices of sushi and sashimi, to delicious soups and Japanese noodles, plus bonuses like bento meals, shakes, ice creams, and even kimchi. If you are a Japanese food-lover like me, then you will love this place. If you’re not but you want to try them, then be ready because you might be like me and the Japanese people, and you will know the reason why we love the food.
