Why the Philippines Lack Good Athletes

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on February 18, 2010 by annepotz

I got hooked on watching the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. It was fun to watch. I love the feeling of watching the athletes do their thing, go for the gold, the spirit and determination for the win; and most of all the pride in their faces in representing their own countries. I also love it when they fall, and they strive to still get up and manage to continue and give their country a great joy and pride. The resiliency of every athlete is one of the highlights of the Olympics.

If we compare our Philippine athletes with the foreign athletes, I can say, in my own opinion, that we Filipinos have the talent, will and spirit to win. We are just as good as them, or more, we are better than them (forgive me for bragging). Filipino athletes excel in every field or event that they choose. Remember Paeng Nepomuceno, Bea Lucero, and other Olympic winners way back? They were legends, Philippine legends in sports that made us so proud.

Sadly, the Philippines rarely produce good Olympic athletes in the recent years. Mainly because, they are not getting enough support from our Philippine government. The Philippines has more important problems to deal with such as poverty, corruption, rapid population growth and more. Athletes were taken for granted, maybe because the funds and supports to them were being corrupted by officials. We have a lot of good athletes; per se, they just lack training and more improvisation because of the lack of budget. The will to win may decline if you are not getting any support.

Taiwan for example, gives its entire support to its athletes who participated in international events, win or lose. They will be receiving awards and compensations after. But the Philippines? I wonder if they even receive half of their reward.

I envy those countries that are over supportive to their athletes. You can hear the cheering and clapping, speeding up the athlete’s courage to cross the great hurdle in each of their events. If only the Philippines has good leaders that can be attentive to the abandoned field of sports in our country, we can also be a great race that the world can look up to and be famous, because we are great athletes, not just a third world country with corrupt political leaders.

KUDOS Melissa Cantiveros: PBB Double Up Big Winner

Posted in Entertainment with tags , , , on February 14, 2010 by annepotz

Sobrang owvheeer ang mga pangyayari kagabi! I was pretty excited to watch the Pinoy Big Brother Double Up, hoping na manalo si Melissa Cantiveros aka Melai. Super naging tensed ang bahay namin habang inaannounce ang mga 5th, 4th and 3rd placers respectively.

Di naman ako super fanatic, but when they announced that Paul Jake was the 2ng Big Placer, voila! I shouted with freat joy, and I also was a bit teary-eyed because of happiness dahil nanalo si Melai!

Congratulations Melai, you deserved to be a big winner, kahit ano pa ang sabihin nila. She gave the BB house the glee and glow kaya sobrang ang daming nahooked, and I was one of them! Kudos to all!!! Will be waiting for the PBB Teen Edition Season 3..can’t wait, I’m sure it will be another great and top rating show!

On Expensive Political Advertisements

Posted in philippines, Politics with tags , , , on February 7, 2010 by annepotz

I wonder where Senator Manny Villar is getting his funds to pay his political ads on television, prints and radio. Well, to some it may not be so surprising, (for we all know that he’s a business tycoon and a billionaire) but apparently the expenditures are so alarming, it has reached more or less P700 million pesos at this point in time, and the official campaign period has not yet started. What more if the campaign period is launched?

He’s really determined to win. He even used the veteran actor, Dolphy to endorse him in one of his political advertisement. Did he really know Villar personally? Totaling all his expenditures in media ads plus the talent fees of every celebrity that he uses in it, the total value will be much bigger than the number of families that are below the poverty line. In addition, he has also exceeded the 120 minutes given to every candidate during the campaign period. Where’s the fairness?

Okay, he’s wealthy. He can use all the money he wants in those ads, but the point is, it is too much. If we try to picture this, he wins the Presidential election, will he acquire all his expenditures from the public fund? Will he use his power as the president so that his business prospects and properties will expand more?

Manny Villar is a businessman. Business people never invest a bunch of their money into something that they will not benefit from. Businessmen always want a win-win situation. They will do whatever it takes to have a good profit. And from what I see, Villar will try even harder to be in the presidential seat, by spending more for those ads.

And I am not impressed by his famous campaign jingle. If you are sincere in helping the nation, be a role model. How can you spend millions and billions if you worked hard for it? A worker who works hard for a little amount of money will be so thrifty enough and wise in spending it. In his case, he throws all “his” money out for his campaign drive, I think it’s a desperate move. If not for the C5 controversy, he would’ve been my presidential bet.

Media can be a great vehicle in campaigning, but voters must be more meticulous in choosing their bet in the appointment of the next head of the nation. These political ads can be very tricky. It can be a façade to a candidate’s real intention; it is a theater where they can leap from being a politician to an actor. We must not be deceived by the candidate’s charming smile and sparkling eyes. Vote wisely, our future depends on it.

Homemade Facial Scrubs and Masks

Posted in Health and Fitness, Tips with tags , , on February 6, 2010 by annepotz

Why settle for expensive treatments and exfoliating products when you can make your own facial scrubs at home? Save your money. Here are some beauty recipes that I recently discovered, cheaper than the commercialized beauty products in the market. Try and see the results, it’s all natural.

  • Oatmeal Smoother
    1/2 cup ground oatmeal.(easy to do, just put non-instant oatmeal in a blender or food processor and process until ground)
    1/2 cup powdered milk

Steps:
-Mix this dry mixture together.

-Store in zip bag, jar or tin. Can be used daily.

TO USE: Mix 2 tsp of dry mix with 2 tsp water to make a paste. Stir until smooth paste is formed. Massage onto face and throat. Rinse. If you want to exfoliate, add some coarse salt or ground almonds to the mixture.

  • Sugar (that’s it, plain old Sugar!)

Sugar works great, but  if you’re prone to acne or fungus because it can cause bacteria or fungus to grow if it’s not washed off completely, great results.

  • Baking Soda + Water

Good for everyday use. To loosen blackheads, combine equal parts baking soda and water in your hand and rub gently on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

  • Banana Scrub

-2 teaspoons mashed banana

-2 teaspoons rolled oats

-1 teaspoon milk

-1 teaspoon honey

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a smooth paste-like  substance. Apply to face and leave it for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes massage it in your face. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water. This scrub works as a peel. The dead skin cells adhere to the slightly dried paste and are removed by the friction created when you gently massage it over your face.

  • Papaya Facial Scrub

Mash a piece of ripe papaya, then add 1/2 tsp brown sugar and rub your face with it. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse well. Your skin will be fresh and glowing. Feel the difference!

  • Tomato Scrub

First, choose a ripe and good tomato. Pound it and then take the juice. And then apply it on your clean face. Let it stay for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, wash your face again with warm water. You will find a spectacular result. Your face will feel very smooth and soft.

  • Egg White Scrub

For oily skin, you can have this kind of mask to take away the oil away from your skin. Get the white part of an egg, squeeze some lemon drops into it. Stir it for a bit and then apply it onto your clean face. Let it stay for 20 minutes. When you feel it hardened you can wash your face with warm water. You will feel no more oil on your face, and it can keep your face clean. It can actually get rid of the oil for about two days. Isn’t it amazing?

  • Milk and Potato Mask

Get half of a potato, boil it. Pound the boiled potato after. Pour milk onto it, mix and apply to your face. Let the mixture stay on your face for about 30 minutes until the milk gets dry. Then you can wash your face with warm water to open pores.

Blogging Again…

Posted in Own Story on February 6, 2010 by annepotz

Another blogging moment. I missed blogging a lot. It was 2006 when I had my own blog site. That was when blogging’s free at www.g-blogs.com powered by Globe Telecom. I am not so articulate when it comes to writing though, but I love it when I can express my ideas freely.

I remember someone who really inspired me to blog again after years of being idle. One day I was surfing the net and came across a blog site. I got so impressed with the way the blog owner expressed his ideas. I liked reading the site. The beautiful words were written articulately, ‘twas so captivating that you want to read all its entries. Then I saw the blog owner’s YM id there in that site, I buzzed him up and luckily, he was online then. Surprisingly, as we chatted, he mentioned to have read a post of mine in http://shine.yahoo.com, well it was a fictional love story that I’ve written.

And then he gave me this advice: Write not to please, but write because you want to express your ideas.

To Mr. Ryan Ericson Canlas (http://ryanericsongcanlas.wordpress.com) well I want to say that you are such a good writer, kudos! I am a frustrated writer , I hope I can write as beautifully as you. Thank you so much for inspiring me.
