It's "Preauricular Sinus"

Finally! It took me over 40 years to know what these tiny holes above my ears are called. Preauricular Sinus, it's "a hereditary defects that was first documented by a scientist called Van Heusinger in 1864. Usually they're found on one side, but up to 50 per cent of people have them on both."

Good thing I came across this article. But I disagree with one evolutionary biologist who says that the holes could be an "evolutionary remnant of fish gills". That's one big LOL! I don't believe in evolution theory, so, I don't buy that. God created me this way. Thank you Jesus!

To Whom It May Concern: I Give Up

To whom it may concern,

Ang pangit pakinggan na kung kailan ka tumanda, doon ka pa nagwala. Tumandang paurong. Instead of becoming wiser and a better person, mas lalo kang naging foolish and evil. I pity you, and I'm afraid for your soul dahil hindi mo alam kung gaanong ka-horrible ang place where you'll end up if you'll not repent. I forgave you even though you're not asking forgiveness. I tried to forget what you've done, but now you're doing it again. I gave you chance, but you blew it away. It seems like you don't want my forgiveness at all and you don't want to change for the better.

Akala mo seguro hindi ko alam ang mga ginagawa mo? Hindi lang ako nagsalita even though grabe sa dumi ng ginagawa mo, na kahit sinong tao ang maka alam, will be dumbfounded, pero binalewala ko lahat yun dahil mahal kita at bilang isang Cristiano gusto kong magpatawad at kalimutan lahat ng ginawa mo. Lahat na ginawa ko, hindi kita pinabayaan, ilang beses akong humingi ng tawad sa mga nagawa kong kasalanan sa 'yo noong ako'y unbeliever pa, inilapit kita sa Dios pero ayaw mo, ginawa mo lang panakip ang Dios para magmuka kang inocente at godly while doing your abominable things. Grabe na ang mga kasinungalingan at deception mo. Hindi ka na ba talaga marunong matakot sa Dios? Hindi lang ikaw sa akin nagkakasala, kundi pati sa Dios. Remember that God sees every secret thing you do. You cannot hide from Him. Mabuti ang Panginoon at mapagpasensya, pero meroon ding hangganan ang lahat. Mag-isip kang mabuti, you still have time before He exposes all your wickedness to everyone.
Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops. - Luke 12: 2-3
My heart is crying and bleeding, but not because of the evil things you've done against me, but because of the evil things, you're doing to yourself and to those people who love you. I give up. Bahala na ang Dios sa 'yo, there's nothing more I can do. But don't worry, I still forgive you and praying for you that you may find God's forgiveness. I would rather see you be saved than go to hell. I don't want to treat you as my enemy, but as a person who needs to be saved. Jesus Christ is the only one who can save you. Heed His Word. Repent from all your unrighteousness. Come to Him with a godly sorrow in your heart and He'll forgive you. It has been proven many many times before na nasa huli lagi ang pagsisisi. Repent.

And as for me, I will continue to walk on the path of righteousness. Hindi ako papabayaan ng Dios. Patunay dyan na simula pa lang noong 1972 sa hospital kung saan ako ibinigay ng doctor sa mga kinikilala kong magulang, up until now, hindi ako iniwan o pinabayaan ng Panginoon, in fact, He blessed me with so much. "Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close." (Psalm 27:10). Faithful ang Panginoon. He will never leave me. He will never forsake me. The more you hurt me, the more you hurt yourself. Hindi mo ako kayang saktan. God is my protector. He will deliver me from all of them who fight against me. 

At pagdating ng araw, when you're at your lowest and weakest and nobody wants to help you or pick you up, I will pick you up at aalagaan kita (even though kasamaan ang ipinalit mo sa mga kabutihan ko sa iyo), and you will glorify God at sasabihin mong "Napakabuti talaga ng Panginoon Dios". Sandali nalang ang buhay natin sa mundo, use it to honor God, your creator. I wish you love. Praying for you always. May the good Lord have mercy on your soul. God bless you.

From a person who cares for you.

My Comment to a video on You Tube about the Marcoses.

I like your channel, but this video is just adding confusion to the already chaotic minds of those youngsters who don't know or have already forgotten their history, who were not even born yet when Marcos was the president. Marcos was a dictator. Not that I'm supporting anyone, but because this is the truth. It's history, and no one can change history. I was born in 1972, the time Marcos declared Martial law. The Marcoses were the absolute king and queen of the Philippines. I remember it so well. Prior to People's Power, there were only one or two newspapers in the country and they were all controlled by the government. Have you ever heard of ‘Desaparecidos’? People will just disappear if they speak against the government, never to be found again. Fear gripped the nation. I was already 14 during the People's Power Revolution. We had a field trip in Malacañan palace a few years after the revolution, there were thrones inside in the now called heroes hall, and I can't forget the shoe collections in the basement which I remember being called then the "Mini Rustan's". One pair of shoes, in particular, called the ‘dancing shoes’ have lights in their heels which Imelda used when dancing in one of her Imeldific parties with Hollywood stars. They were living like royalties while the people lived in deep poverty. It's so sad how people have easily forgotten the atrocities of the Marcoses, and have forgotten our heroes who have given their lives for the freedom of Filipinos. This is so wrong. So wrong. God bless you and your family.

Politically Incorrect Pacquiao Gets My Vote

As we all know, Rep. Manny Pacquiao is running for a senate seat this coming election in May. And this early, I have vetted all possible candidates and admittedly he did not make my shortlist. I have to be honest, I have shown my bias against him as Senate is not a place for him. One obvious reason being he’s running under the party of Vice president Jejomar Binay as its presidential bet, himself arguably the most corrupt politician in the Philippines by virtue of massive corruption charges. Pacquiao’s choice of party itself is already a big red flag, that to me diminishes his own credibility, integrity or lack thereof. Why would a popular, outspoken, bible - quoting born again Christian would want to be associated let alone support a corrupt politician like Binay?

Two weeks ago, he gave a rousing speech during the proclamation rally of vice president Jejomar Binay when he said “Binay is destined to be our next president”. That to me was a nail in the coffin until that infamous interview last week that set both mainstream and social media on fire when he spoke against same-sex marriage which I am also against.

Manny has been a born again believer over the course of three or four years, he is fairly new in the faith and I believe he is still a work in progress, and this probably explains why he sometimes finds himself in so many questionable endeavors like making alliances with blatantly corrupt and lying politicians. He is probably not the most intelligent person and the best communicator there is, if only for his unmistakable accent that has become a natural fodder for comedy bars (his mother and siblings also get their fair share oftentimes), and his poor diction has helped launch many Manny counterfeits a career in comedy .

In the interview, he was asked specifically about his stand on same-sex marriage. It was not a scenario of him blabbing about his religious belief to random people. As a Christian, it was natural of him to make an honest answer which he did according to his conviction and belief. Being passionate about his faith and wanting to really drive a point in a manner that is easily relatable, he cited an analogy that beasts are better/smarter than humans who are into same-sex intercourse for animals can distinguish a male from a female.

Below is the transcript of the interview verbatim:
"As a Christian, same-sex marriage is prohibited, female was created for male, male was created for female. For me, it's just common sense. Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations? Animals are better because they recognise gender differences, and if you have male-to-male or female-to-female (relationships), then people are worse than animals, but I am not condemning. I am not condemning them, just the marriage, committing sin against God."

The level of hostility towards Manny Pacquiao from people small and great is not in any way surprising. In fact, the repercussion is expected and every Christian who reads their Bible knows what is coming. We are living in a dark world where the almighty God (who spoke everything into existence) is becoming irrelevant and obsoleted, where immorality has become society’s norm, and speaking the truth is hate speech to those who are wallowing in the mire of sin and immorality. “Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” says in Isaiah 5:20.

Turns out, some professing Christians have spoken against Manny Pacquiao, one of them is popular singer Yeng Constantino. She made a video and posted it on her FB page. In the video, she bannered her being a Christian, and that she’s angry at the comparison between humans and animals as she later confessed she has a sibling who is homosexual, and that as a Christian she would never hurt anyone’s feelings. She distanced herself from Pacquiao’s brand of Christianity as something she does not see herself being identified with for “God gave me a ministry of reconciliation, love and acceptance”.

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 10:37-38, “He that loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me: and he that loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. He that takes not his cross, and follow after Me, is not worthy of Me.” True Christians always put God first in everything, even above our loved ones and all the things we treasure. When God says “... And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” in Deuteronomy 6:5, it is not a suggestion, it is a command which we should all fearfully follow. If Ms. Constantino is a true Christian as she claims to be and truly loves her brother, then she should tell him the truth of what the Scripture says about homosexuality, that it is a sin and a violation of God’s law, that whoever practices homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). Don’t think God hates homosexuals, John 3:16-17 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

It’s incredible how God uses this issue to separate the sheep from the goats. “By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.” (1 John 3:10). 

As of now, this news is all over, and many of Manny’s friends, supporters, and sponsors have turned their backs on him. More than a million of his twitter followers unfollowed him overnight after hearing the news. Those fans (Filipinos and foreigners alike) who once cheered for him in all of his fights are now speaking up against him because he stood for his faith and conviction. 

It’s a rough road, but I know something good and beautiful will come out of this at the end. I believe that God is teaching Manny Pacquiao something that will further strengthen his faith, and change him to the person God wants him to be.“For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and whips every son whom he receives.“ (Hebrews 12:6). 

Manny, praying that God continually give you wisdom, knowledge and discernment to continue your walk in the truth of God’s Word. That you continue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone most especially to your family and loved ones. You have my vote Manny because you have proven that God’s righteousness is not a strange and irrelevant virtue but a beacon of light amid an increasingly godless and unbelieving society. God bless you.

At The Philippine Consulate Today

I went to the Philippine consulate here in Jeddah early this morning for the renewal of my passport and also to get my voter's ID which I should have gotten back in 2009. I've finished what I came there to do in just approximately 30 minutes. Quick tips for those who will renew their passports prepare everything ahead of time, download your required form from the (Jeddah) consulate's web page, read it carefully and fill it with the required information correctly so that you won't have to do it on the queue. Be there before 8 AM.

For those of you (here in Jeddah) who applied for a voter's ID from 2009 until 2012 and still have not claimed it, you can check it on the 3rd floor of the consulate. Just provide a valid ID and they will look for your voter's ID for you.

Goodbye Bin Dawood

Yesterday I said goodbye to Bin Dawood my sickly old cat that I rescued 5 months ago at Bin Dawood supermarket on Heraa street. I brought him to the German lady veterinarian (whom I knew since 2012) to be euthanized. 

Bin Dawood's health condition was not improving since I took him in, and it was getting worse. When he uses the litter, he's not covering his poop, he always sleeps on top of the refrigerator and knocks everything on it. Just a few weeks ago he pooped on top of it, that was my tipping point, so I had to let him go.

And also, I took with me my two other male cats to be neutered. All of my rescued cats are all neutered or spayed so that they will not increase in numbers. They were all neutered and spayed by the same doctor free of charge. Thank you, doc!
