Change the Way You See LOVE

Everyone likes to hear a love story where a handsome boy meets a pretty girl and instantly fall in love with each other. They would go for a couple of dates until finally they get married and finally share every adventure with each other. And just like everyone else, I have always wanted to start my own love story by finding a pretty cute guy who could be my prince charming and create lots of memories with him. But as they say, Love comes in unexpected places. You can't really find love by looking for it. It has to catch you off-guard. And that is actually true in my case. But in my case, love came in an unexpected form - a cute little puppy.

The first time we ever saw Crumpy - a sharpei who soon became our very first pup, we felt it was love at first sight. With even hesitating or thinking twice, we immediately bought him and brought him home. Never mind the fact that all these years, our mom never wanted to have a dog because at that moment, even mom couldn't resist such a cute pup. That was how my love story began and that was nine years ago.

Over the years, it wasn't a very smooth ride. Having no experience taking care of a puppy, we were initially so frustrated with the play bites and the uncontrolled toilet habits he had. He would even go around biting things and end up destroying them, and even my favorite pillow was victim to that. But then he would show us his puppy dog eyes so instead of punishing him, we would just end up petting him even more. So you can just imagine our joy when he finally got over the teething phase and was already potty-trained.

There were also times when he'd get sick so we had to take him to the vet. One instance would be when he had a common eye problem that needed surgery. We were so worried because he even had to wear his cone of shame for a week just so it could heal properly. And during that time, he was treated like a royalty, being showered with delicious treats and a lot of hugs.

But nothing can beat all the outings we went on just so we can walk him. We've taken him to Mall of Asia, Bonifacio High Street, and other dog--friendly parks and each time, you would see how happy he was with his tail pushed up, wagging frantically. It would always be a fun trip, even though we would always have to prepare his baby bag everytime to make sure we had cleaning materials for his abrupt bowel habit and water for him to drink when he got thirsty from the walk.

And because of all the experiences I've shared with Crumpy and now, also little Crumpy's, it somehow changed the way I see love. Love is not just having a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And I believe the best way to describe it is through this acronym of L-O-V-E:

L - Loyalty 
Love is all about being loyal to someone, despite all challenges you have to enoucnter. Despite all the times we got frustrated with our dog's behavior, we still continued to love him and nurture him.

O - Openmindedness
Love is all about being openminded and understanding about someone's flaws. No one is perfect, we all can make mistakes. And so we should learn to see through someone's flaws and appreciate the positive things that make you love him.

V - Vocation 
Love is a vocation, meaning it requires a lot of passion and commitment. It doesn't end just because you had a fight with that someone. Even if Crumpy has destroyed a lot of things that were special to us, we still didn't give up on caring for him. Instead, we put more effort into helping him understand what was untouchable for him.

E - Exciting
Love will always be exciting, contrary to what most people think. It is never a dull moment when you're with the one you love, especially when you can see and feel the happiness that your loved one is feeling. Whenever we give Crumpy a special treat or whenever we take him out on walks, we can really see the joy in his eyes and this makes us feel really good. And it is in these moments that we really love taking photos and videos with Crumpy. Although sometimes, it's hard to bring a camera and carry it together with Crumpy's baby bag as we walk hum. Thankfully, a smartphone with an advanced camera technology has come out. With Huawei P9, capturing exciting moments during our dog walks with Crumpy would not only be easier, but because of its high quality photos, they would definitely be able to capture the emotion and excitement of those moments. And because I have learned all of these after being with my lovely sharpei all these years, I couldn't be more thankful to him. Love truly comes in unexpected places and forms.

The same way Crumpy helped me changed the way I see love, Huawei P9 can “Change the Way You See Mobile Photography”.  Huawei P9’s camera is co-engineered with Leica. It has dual lenses that produces high quality photos and allow users to take amazing monochrome, slo-mo, colored, light painting photos among others.

Stupidty or Nationalism? 9 Reasons for Voting Bongbong Marcos (#BBM4VP)

Source of Trilateral Commission Deal With Ferdinand Marcos (Grant of Loan for His Gold Bars):

May 13, 2016

From the lips of a dying President (Marcos) by Salvador H. Laurel Vice President of the Philippines

I can attest to that. Weak and already on his deathbed when I visited him in Hawaii on February 3, 1989, Marcos personally asked me to convey to Cory Aquino his offer to give up 90% of his earthly possessions to the Filipino people, through a Foundation which he had set up, but Cory only would allow him to die in his own country and be buried beside his mother.

I related this incident in a book “Neither Trumpets Nor Drums,” published in 1992 right after I ended my term as Vice President of the Philippines.

Pertinent portions that book I now quote for the benefit of those who have not read it.
 “One of the most unforgettable trips I took as Vice President was my visit to Honolulu on February 3 and 4 1989.
“On February 2nd, at about 5 p.m., I received an urgent call from Mrs. Imelda Romualdez Marcos in Honolulu. She was sobbing on the phone. “ Doy, pwede ka bang maka-punta rito? Masama na ang tayo ni Ferdinand. Gusto kang kausapin. Baka hindi na siya magtagal Please, please come,’ she pleaded.
“I’ll have to cancel my appointments. Maybe I can go in few days?” I asked.
“She interrupted me, ‘Baka hindi mo na siya abutin. Please come as soon as possible!”
“I thought about it. The cases filed against the Marcoses had been pending for three years, yet nothing had happened. And the nation remained fragmented. Perhaps, if I tried the Lincolnian approach – ‘With malice toward none, with charity for all’ – we might be able to settle the issue and unite the nation.
“Then I remembered Imelda’s plea: ‘Gusto kang kausapin.’ Maybe there is a chance – maybe he is ready to settle?
“She first briefed me about President Marcos’ condition – that he was very weak. The doctors who were attending to him told me he had a less than 50 percent chance of surviving, that he might not even last three months.
“Then they took me to the Intensive Care Unit.
“I could not recognize Ferdinand Marcos when I saw him. The Marcos I knew was athletic, active, and articulate. The man I saw was skin and bones. About eighty-five pounds. Imelda announced cheerfully: ‘Andy, Andy, narito na ang BatangueƱo, narito na si Doy.’
“His eyes opened. He recognized me. He tried to talk. But only his lips moved. There was no sound.
“He signaled the nurse to remove the tube imbedded in his throat.
“The Nurse pulled out the long tube and asked me to bend closer so I could hear. Finally I heard his voice, very faint, almost a whisper. “Salamat, brod, nakarating ka. I have something to tell you.’
“I interrupted him: ‘Before you start, Mr. President, may I ask just one question?
“He nodded.
“Why did you call me, Mr. President? Why me of all people? I vehemently oppose you. I was probably one of those responsible for your ouster Why Me?’
“He signaled me to stop.
“Say no more, brod,’ he said. ‘I never held that against you. You did what you had to do as leader of the opposition for many years. You opposed me on principle, never on personality. You were against martial law but you were noble about it, unlike some people. Besides, I cannot forget your father. I owe him my life, not once but thrice. Let me talk now. I have very little time.’
*** “Please tell Mrs. Aquino to stop sending me her relatives. They are proposing and asking so many things. All I want is to die in my country…I will run over 90 percent of all my worldly possessions to our conversation to our people. I ask only 10 percent for my family.’
“Just let me die in my own country. I want to be buried beside my mother.’
“His breathing had become more labored. The nurse stopped our conversation. ‘He has to rest not,’ she said.
“Before leaving I told him: ‘Mr. President, I do now know if Mrs. Aquino will listen to me, but I will try.’
“I hurried back to Manila to transmit Marcos’ message to President Aquino. I asked for an appointment but Cory would not see me. Here I was, her own Vice-President, asking only for three minutes of her time to convey an important message from her predecessor, and she would not see me. I was told by her Executive Secretary (Catalino Macaraig) she was busy. I learned later that she had allocated an hour to Tom Cruise, an American movie star.
“In view of her repeated refusal to see me and hear what I had to say, I wrote her a letter dated February 5, 1989: “Since my arrival yesterday, I have been trying to get an appointment with you…
*** “I hope you will find time to listen to the highly confidential message of Mr. Marcos considering its serious import and far- reaching consequences upon your administration and the nation as a whole.”
The next day, Cory replied:
“As to the highly confidential message from former President Ferdinand E. Marcos, I feel that in the light of your representation of its ‘serious import and far-reaching consequences upon your (my) administration and the nation as a whole,’ such message should be disclosed to the public rather than kept confidential. This is in accordance with my announced policy of utmost transparency in the management of the affairs of the country.”
On the same day I wrote back: “ I am still hoping that you will change your mind and receive the message in a private, non-political, direct, and unfiltered manner, beyond any personal and partisan consideration.
“As to your published suggestion that I share with the public the highly confidential information, I am afraid I am not yet at liberty to do so considering that the message was entrusted to me in confidence to be delivered to you personally. Only you and former President Marcos can declassify or disclose this message.
“Let us give national reconciliation and national stability every chance to succeed for the sake of our fragmented people..” (Neither Trumpets Nor Drums, at pp 104-111, 1986 ed, Second printing)
I never received any further reply from Cory.

Cory’s refusal to receive Marcos’ message was perhaps her biggest mistake. Had she studied it carefully, she could have settled the Marcos wealth issue eight years ago. Perhaps we could have paid off our foreign debt!

As the Philippines’ Internet landscape continues to grow, along with it is the way that brands and consumers do business. For the real estate industry, easy and real-time viewing of the property is the fast-emerging trend.

Realizing the importance of the digital evolution, real estate giant Megaworld has partnered with online property portal Lamudi Philippines to strengthen its online campaign for San Antonio Residence, a new Makati project that eyes tech-savvy millennials as a primary market.

“San Antonio Residence is Megaworld’s 20th residential masterwork in the Makati central business district designed as the ideal home for millennials. Its location and amenities complement the fast-paced lifestyle of the millennials, enabling them to make the most of their time, whether it’s moving up the career ladder or being with their loved ones,” says Eugene Em Lozano, vice president for sales and marketing for Makati CBD, Megaworld.

Taking advantage of Lamudi’s premier listings, recently upgraded mobile app and expert market data, Megaworld will up the game in real estate online advertising. “Now that digital is the way to go in real estate, we believe that Lamudi’s online expertise can help us reach our target market,” adds Lozano.

Lamudi Philippines, together with (which the former acquired in 2015), is now the dominant real estate listings portal in the Philippines. And in effort to make itself the go-to place for everything related to real estate, the company also released its Real Estate Market Report for 2015.

“Our website’s large amount of page-views and visits are indicative of how much more potential buyers and renters look online to explore their increased real estate options. With this in mind, we tailored our products and services to the needs of our clients. For Megaworld Makati, our online marketing campaigns fit their carefully designed project meant to cater the modern lifestyle of young Pinoys,” says Jacqueline van den Ende, managing director of both Lamudi Philippines and

Scheduled to be completed in 2020, San Antonio Residence is equipped with exciting amenities such as the very first B.O.N.D. (Begin, Open, Nurture, Discover) area, a Street Fitness Park and a two-story mall. This residential condo project is also conveniently located along Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., a stone’s throw away from all landmarks of the Makati CBD.
