the bucket list

This would be my first time writing about a movie, and I don’t even know if it’s showing now or if it’s not. Just finished watching it in my ever reliable DVD player, ofcourse knowing me and my budget the dvd is fake. And so… so what… I aint the only one you know.

Well that’s not the reason why I wrote this, I just want to recommend this movie to you. Yes you, the one who is reading this right now.  Ofcourse I am pertaining to you, who else would I be talking to. It is a story of friendship, life and how to accept death in a different perspective. I dare not tell you the plot of the story for it will ruin your curiousness, but I tell you this, it is a moving story and surely you would love it as I did. Have I told you that it stars two of my fave actors, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. So why are you still there? Go on and watch this movie… a must see.

Suharto dies at age 86

Former dictator, currently ranked as the 6th richest man in the world, with an estimated personal wealth of $16,000,000,000, an army general who crushed Indonesian communist movement and became the second president of Indonesia and reigned from1967-1998. His rule made significant growth to the economy and industy of Indonesia, however this 3 decade rule also led to million deaths, suspected communists and other political opponents.suharto.jpg

On January 4, 2008, Suharto, 86, was rushed to the Pertamina hospital, Jakarta. His medical condition deteriorated due to complications resulting to weak heart, swelling of limbs and stomach, and partial renal failure. Suharto’s health signs improved on Sunday but he remained critical, after haemodialysis.On January 8, 2008, Suharto’s health worsened as doctors diagnosed him of anemia and low blood pressure due to heart and kidney complications. There was internal bleeding, fluid on his lungs, blood in his faeces and urine which caused hemoglobin drop.On January 11, 2008, it was announced that Suharto’s condition worsened dramatically and that he suffered multiple organ failure.Two days later, the chief of the medical team treating Suharto stated that the former President is in a “very critical condition” after almost all his organ functions failed, and that there was only a 50-50 chance that he would survive, though some Indonesians believe Suharto would not die easily because he practiced mysticism. On January 17, 2008, since only machines prolong his life (amid multiple organ failure, pneumonia and sepsis), Suharto’s 2-week hospitalization sparked quiet debate on end-of-life issues. 100 hospital directors, doctors and researchers took part in an end-of-life workshop in Yogyakarta city (a collaboration between Harvard Medical School and Gadjah Mada University, organized before Suharto fell ill). On January 23, 2008 Suharto’s health worsened further, as an infection spread through his body and fluctuated until it reached the lowest level on January 27. He died on that day at 1:10 pm.

ANG UMAAYAW AY HINDI NAGWAWAGI,
ANG NAGWAWAGI AY HINDI UMAAYAW.

Ang mga Filipino na yata sa buong mundo ang pinakasugarol sa mundo. Based on my experience and sa nakikita ko sa ating kapaligiran. Hindi sa sinisiraan ko ang ating bansa pero yun lang talaga ang napapansin ko. Madami akong kakilalang walang perang maibigay pambili ng pagkain ng kanyang pamilya pero pag dating sa sugal ay may nailalabas. Meron namang kahit ano isasanla basta makapagsugal lang. Kahit nga ako eh paminsan minsan ay hindi mapigilang sumugal. Madali ang pera sa sugal kaya nga sugal eh, madaling kitain madali ring mawala. Pero bakit nga ba lulong ang mga Pinoy dito? Una na siguro yung pamatay sa oras, pangalawa eh madali ngang kumita ng pera at pangatlo eh masarap ang bawal.
Isa sa pinakasikat na sugal ay ang Jueteng na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin masolusyunan ng ating gobyerno, kaya sila mismo ay nagpataya sa pamamagitan ng ez2, ang Jueteng ay nagsimula sa China and it means “flower” (jue) and “bet” (teng). It involves the combination of 37 numbers of 37 numbers. In some areas, the operators use 38 numbers. For 37 of 37 numbers, there are, 1,369 combinations; while for 38 of 38 numbers, there are, 1,444 combinations. Samantalang sa ez2 naman ay 31 numbers naman. Pumapangalawa naman ang larong Tong-its na nilalaro ng 3 katao. At alam nyo ba na hanggang sa internet ay pumasok na rin ito na inimbento ng mga pinoy. Isearch nyo at makikita nyong hindi ako nagloloko. Pangatlo ay ang sabong, 2 tandang na manok, isa lang mananalo sinong hindi tataya 50/50 pero syempre yung tama mo eh maliit lang din at depende sa taya mo. Pangapat ay ang luma ngunit sikat na sikat pa ring Sakla, karaniwang makikita kapag may patay, ginagamitan naman ito ng tarot cards at kung paano laruin ay hindi ko alam basta ang alam ko lang ay may bangka at may mga manananaya. Panglima ay ang Ending, eto yung tatayaan mo yung last digit ng last score ng magkatunggali sa PBA. Kunwari Ginebra at San Miguel, pagtapos ng laban eh nanalo Gin Kings syempre at ang score ay 105-92, ang tumama eh 5-2. Panganim eh ang karera ng kabayo, isa sa mga sugal na kinagigiliwan ng mga kalalakihan. Pangpito eh cara y cruz, 3 betsingkong hinahagis at pag nakaparepareho eh panalo ang naghahagis. Pangwalo eh mahjong na bagamat pangmayaman at tinalo ng tongits eh hindi pa rin nalalaos. Pang syam ay Pusoy at ang pang sampu ay ang Lucky 9.
Madami pang sugal dito sa Pinas nga lang kung lahat eh isusulat ko malamang eh bukas pa ako matapos sa pagtatype kaya hanggang dito na lamang muna ang mga nilista ko.

ANG UMAAYAW AY HINDI NAGWAWAGI, ANG NAGWAWAGI AY HINDI UMAAYAW.

ADOBO – pork

Adobo ang isa sa mga pinakasikat na luto sa pinas. Baket??? Syempre konti ang sangkap, konting suka konting toyo may adobo na… syempre wag pilosopo kelangan syempre ng baboy. Pero all in all madaling lutuin at ang sangkap madaling hanapin at mura lang. Kaya ano pa ginagawa mo jan bumili na ng sangkap at simulan ng magluto.
Mas gusto kong lutuin etong pork adobo kesa sa chicken adobo. Wag nyo na akong tanungin kung bakit basta ang alam ko eh mas gusto ko pag adobong baboy. Maaaring mas gusto ko kase na priniprito ang manok kesa sa inadobo sya, nalalansahan kc ako pero syempre kung wala ng mapagpilian pwede na rin yung adobong manok.
Yung iba pinagsasama ang baboy at manok pero hindi namin nakagawian sa pamilya namin, kayo bahala pera nyo naman yang pambibili nyo eh. So it’s your choice what you’ll do with your adobo. But this is the only advice i would give you mas masarap pag masarsa ang adobo kesa sa masabaw pero nasa sa inyo pa rin yan. Kung nasanay kayo sa masabaw eh di dun kayo pero kung gusto mo sa nagmamantikang adobong baboy eh dun ka sa luto namin. At kung gusto mo yung nagmamantika eh dapat dun ka sa liempo at kung ayaw mo sa taba at puro laman ang gusto mo kasim ang dapat na baboy para sa iyo, either way nasa pagluluto mo ang magiging basehan kung masarap ba o palpak ang putahe mo. And this is how we (my family and I) cook our adobong baboy.
