beauty pageants

>> Monday, March 17

Would you be proud of your fellowmen, or should I say woman, after this...?

While waiting for the video to load, read the following transcript I got from Jinky Bagagnan

Host (Paolo Bediones): Janina, how are you?

Janina: I’m fine.

Host: All right…

Janina: Yes

[directs a sickeningly sweet and plastic beauty queen smile to the audience]

Host: (cont)… so you won two of the major awards - Best in Long Gown and Best in Swimsuit…

Janina: [smiles her beauty queen smile; tries to look humbly complacent but succeeds only in looking rather constipated] Yes [She seems exceedingly fond of the word Yes, huh?]

Host: (cont)…Do you feel any pressure right now?

Janina: No, I don’t fill any pressure right now.

[Nah, that’s not a misspelling; that’s exactly what she said though she probably meant “feel.” And if you want to know how she recited this statement, read it the way you have been taught to read poems when you were in elementary school: put the stress on every other word. That is to say, emphasize the following: No, fill, pressure - you get the gist? Don’t forget to over-enunciate, too. That’s a definite requirement. Oh, and smile the sickly smile afterwards]

Host: Confident! All right! Please choose the name of a judge!

[At this point, Janina again bestows the world with her beauty queen smile then inclines her head regally (?) towards the audience. When asked to pick a name from the lot of judges, she pouts prettily then pastes on - there really is no other term for it - her smile once again]

Host: We have Ms. Vivian Tan.

Ms. Tan: Good evening.

Janina: Good evening!

Ms. Tan: The question is: What role did your family play with you as candidate to Binibining Pilipinas?

Janina: Well, my family’s role for me is so important. Because there was the… they’re… they was the one [you should see the look on ms. Tan’s face: it has a petrified quality to it and there’s a telling flicker of the left eyelid - it seems she can’t believe what she’s hearing and seeing] who…se [crowd roars] very Ha Ha, Oh, I’m so sorry. My pamily, my family, Oh my God [Ms. Tan finally yet good naturedly chuckles; crowd roars] I’m, [Paolo Bediones: That’s Ok] Ok, I’m so sorry, I, I told you that I’m so confident, eto, ahm, wait, aha ha ha ha ha ha [her laughter is a bit hysterical; the crowd roars once again]. Ahm, Sorry guys [the camera pans to the other contestants on stage; the ladies were obviously but unsuccessfully trying to suppress their mirth; they were giggling a shade too bitchily, perhaps, but who can blame them for being glad, huh? After all, they’re in a contest with Ms. San Miguel] because this was really my first pageant ever. Because I’m only 17 years old [camera pans to the judges’ table; it shows Ms Tan still widely smiling but the petrified quality to her smile is back. obviously she’s still incredulous ; the judge seated beside Ms. Tan is openly laughing at this point] and Uh ha ha I, I did not expect that I came from, I came from one of the TAFF 10 [she meant that she can’t believe she made it to the TOP 10], hmm [the hmm sound she made as if to convince herself and the crowd; really; listen to it and you’ll agree], so, but I said DOT [DOT = that; Ms. Tan and the judge seated beside her are still smiling but their smiles indicate that they don’t find it funny anymore; the guy judge’s eyes are downcast while Ms. Tan’s is fixed on Ms. San Miguel; it seems they have now started to accept the fact that they have in front of them a contestant who “came apart at the seams” in an incredibly grand way during the Q&A portion] my family is the most important persons in my life, thank you.

Age and not being confident are not good excuses for not being able to speak grammatically correct English AND not being able to answer correctly (that judge's question was WHAT role her family has not HOW IMPORTANT their role is!). Now why did she win? I sure would like to know why.. to think she's going to represent the Philippines... hahayy...


The top five cancer-causing foods

>> Thursday, March 6

1. Hot dogs
Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and bacon

Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then
fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams.

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.


health tips

>> Wednesday, March 5

Found this in one of my mails today.. thought I share it with you... it's good to live a healthy life... :)

Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating

It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air pollution

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep deprivation

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.

The Main Causes of Liver Damage:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
9. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

I miss you in the morning

when the sun breaks the horizon

I miss you when I walk

along the familiar roads of home

I miss you at midday

when the sun is high in the sky

I miss you in every little thing I do each day

I miss your playful laugh on a sunny day

I miss your warm embrace on a cold rainy night

I miss you when the sun sets

waiting for a glimpse of twilight

I miss you in the evening

as I wait for my dreams to come

I miss you so much my love,

I’ll wait for you to come home
