Overhaul 2018

I've always been erratic in terms of writing. I'm not much of a writer. This blog has been inactive for a while. I was able to open my account and checked. I read my old posts, too. I can't help feeling nostalgic. The way I write about my random ramblings were so passionate and brutally frank. I removed some of my posts, ones I consider insignificant. 
I'm thinking of writing down my thoughts here again. I'll try posting every time I get the chance. Meanwhile, I'm in Dumaguete City for a job. 

We are strongest and richest, together

A strange and disturbing, and fatally-flawed, misconception seems to fester in the minds of some men – hopefully no Women – in this world.

It is in regards to male-Female relationships, in regards to discussions of equality and superiority, gender roles and such.

When such discussions come up online, and in real life, too, a man who declares that Women have made significant contributions to civilization, that They are quite capable of doing anything that men can do and, perhaps, even do it better, is declared to have been “whipped.” He is said to be afraid. He is advised to “turn in his manhood.”

This puzzles me.

The conundrum is perhaps analogous to the typical attitude towards male cheerleaders or ballet dancers. What is a male cheerleader? He is a man who enjoys the close company of Women, who certainly doesn’t feel threatened by Them, and who must indeed be very manly, in a physical way – able to lift Them up with both grace and power.

Yet what is the stereotype of such a guy? As…

Family Trip to Campuestohan 2018

I took a trip with my family to Campuestohan Highland Resort - a resort and themed park combination located in Talisay, Negros Occidental. It took us 30 minutes to get there by private car from Bacolod City.

My first visit was way back in 2012. The resort is progressive in terms of development. The original pool is closed right now and is being upgraded, as well as the older part of the resort. There were a lot of attractions added and for Php150.00 as an entrance fee, it's worth it. Get ready to hike and descend on paths since the resort is on a hill.

Since it was a weekend, we already anticipated that there will be a crowd. The kids with me wasn't able to try out the wave pool but they had fun checking the attractions.

Overall, it was a good day trip with the family.

Sweet Poem

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

A T-shirt Caption

Late this afternoon, a t-shirt caption hooked me, it said in bold letters : "What?I WILL die because you didn't use condoms?" and a crazy graphic of a baby making a fool out himself. I want to talk about abortion.

There are two main questions concerning abortion:

Whether abortion is a moral decision for a woman, given her specific situation. This might include consideration of her religious beliefs, age, marital status, health, economic status, available support systems, genetic makeup, etc.

If, after a woman has consulted with her physician and perhaps her spiritual advisor and has decided to seek an abortion, whether the government should veto her decision.


There are two answers to the second question:

Those promoting a pro-life position say that the government should intrude on the woman's decision and prevent her from having an abortion in some, many, or all cases.

Those promoting a pro-choice position say that the government should not interfere with the woman&…
