Tips for guys who goes shopping against their will

My female friends, girlfriend and my sister sometimes insist that I accompany them on their trips to Department Stores and sometimes in tiangge (thrift shops). Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to make alibis and get out. "Frustrating" as I usually describe it. 

Unfortunately, my female friends and also my sister (like most women) - - loves to browse, and the amazing thing is they have the power to persuade… against my will.

A friend sent me these cool  and funny tips to enjoy shopping with girls which I want to share with you guys:

May 3, 2010 Monday is Declared as Special Non Working Holiday in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines - President Arroyo today declared May 3, 2010 as a special non-working holiday in lieu of May 1, Labor Day. 
Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza said May 1, which falls on a Saturday, is not a holiday. He said this declaration is based on Republic Act 9492 or the holiday economics of President Arroyo.

RA 9492 mandates that most holidays, except those with religious significance, will be shifted to the nearest Monday. 

Labor Secretary Marianito Roque earlier ruled out any announcements of a wage hike from President Arroyo on Labor Day.

Eve molested in front of Adam! - Caption it yourself

Here is a picture of mine during our boring company summer outing at La Virginia Resort in Batangas. I don’t know what I was thinking that time, so I put a blank caption so you could give it a shot. Send me your ideas. Post them in the comment box below.

Give me some funny!

Youth doesn't reason, it acts. The old man reasons and would like to make the others act in his place.” - Francis Picabia (1878-1953) French painter, and poet.

To Our Beloved Youth,

I may be about the same age as your moms, stable and accomplished, but I still worry about my future. Yes, my future… for my future includes my offspring and their children. It is an ultimate act of sacrifice that should go beyond a lifetime, a moral obligation that one will have to contend with for the sake of the next generation.

I must admit that there’s a sting in my heart every time I look at the present and see the gargantuan pile of rubbish that our generation will be passing on to yours. It had become too colossal that we have obstructed your ability to see and catch a glimpse of a promising future. I sometimes wonder if robbing a man of his dreams is as grave a sin as the act of stealing itself.

The Camwhore Paradise » La Virginia Resort and Hotel in Batangas

We usually have a 3-days 2-nights annual company outing but this year, we only had a 1-day tour at La Virginia Resort and Hotel last April 9.

The resort is in Mataas na kahoy, Batangas which is a two hour ride from Manila. It is set in the highlands of Batangas which offers a wonderful view of the Taal Volcano and the lake and plantations surrounding it. It is perfect for barkada trips and company outings because they offer several cottage accomodations to fit the needs of anywhere between 2 to 12 persons. Each cottage has its own set of unique ambience and character. Some cottages even provide cooking.

Are you living your life as an adventure?

I consider my life as a continuous adventure of risk-taking, contentment and successes. But it wasn’t always that way. During high school, I sensed that there was something bigger in life – something exciting and fulfilling – but I didn’t know how to go about getting it. Growing up in a small town in Occidental Mindoro where the norm was waiting for the day to be over, I strive to have a different way of life. I try my best to be an achiever – salutatorian of my high school class, a full government scholar during college and now striving to finish Graduate school. I’m not trying to brag here, it’s just that I thought that worldly success alone would bring me what I am searching for.

But after seven years of working as an employee, I have to face the hard truth that I am not on the journey I wished and planned.

Sleeping With Wet Hair Can Cause Blindness and Other Absurdities

My grandmother has this funny and bizarre collection of health ideas that I do not know whether some of it is true – but I’m sure most of it are just local absurdities. Maybe it is because of information deficiency and the belief in albularyo or local quack doctor.

These health beliefs always remind me what it was like to grow up in the province, fascinated and horrified by the adult world. Right now, it is really reassuring that the things I used to believe weren't so strange after all because I discovered that, somehow, most provinces across the Philippines, and even other countries, also have their own or same health legends. And the most common – sleeping with wet hair can cause blindness.

Never Wish for A Longer Dick

I don't know why the "male small dick panic" is still an issue nowadays -- Maybe the advent of sexual consumerist culture is to blame. It is a universal assumption, and I say just an assumption, that men know more or less where they stand relative to their peers when it comes to dick size.

Quick Facts (and of course you already know about this):
Average penis size when flaccid – 4 inches
Average penis size when erect – 5.7 inches
It’s a bit bigger than a gorrilla’s 3-inch erection, but then there’s blue whale, the world’s largest mammal that has, a goddamn ten-foot erection.

The Chick’s Lesson from Shit

This story is inspired by our little farm in Mindoro during my childhood days.
Hope you’ll like it. Here’s my story:

One windy afternoon, as the mother hen and her chicks are hurrying to return to the farmer's nipa hut to avoid the sudden gusts of amihan (or the strong trade winds), one of the chicks decided he doesn’t want to leave the farm yet. “You are all cowards,” he said to the other chicks. “After all, all I have to do is hide under the talahib grass to avoid the sudden gusts of amihan.”

Woohhh!!! I Won the Philippine Mega Lotto! I am now a Millionaire!

I can't believe it, I AM NOW A MILLIONAIRE!!!

I asked a friend yesterday how to play the Mega Lotto 6/45 which is a six-number combination chosen from a lot of numbers from 1 to 45 and the odds of getting all six winning numbers is really what you will call luck. I'm really not into gambling and this is actually my first time in trying my luck in Philippine lotto and I'm just bored so I bought a ticket.
