What I Can Say About MSU

I often heard parents agonizing about their children's tertiary education and I would often offer them the Mindanao State University-Main Campus, where I:
  1. ENJOYED A QUALITY EDUCATION
  2. enjoyed studying without paying any tuition fees. The highest amount I have paid I remember during enrollments was Php280.00. It covered everything already. Take note, it was for the entire semester already.
  3. enjoyed staying in a girls dorm that receives from me Php100.00 only per semester.
  4. experienced going to major classes even with only 4 students enrolled. I remember the time when all my classmates were absent, my teacher (Sir Henry Hong) still delivered what he had to deliver in the Symbolic Logic class even if I was the only one present.
  5. experienced the fastest enrollment ever (beginning school year 2002-2003)
  6. experienced so many opportunities to grow spiritually (with CG family), mentally (with CSSH family and the university's LitMus competitions), physically (from walking everyday around the very big campus), and financially (from selling sandals, umbrellas, blouses and t-shirts, pudding and sandwich inside the dormitory)
  7. enjoyed from quality teachers (first class)
  8. met friends from different cultures (kalagan, magui, surigaonon, tausug, etc)
  9. lived with at least one muslim in the room (I stayed at PLH Dormitory) every semester
  10. lived with different people every semester, so, when I graduated, I gained a lot of close friends already
  11. enjoyed meals at Php300-400 per month
  12. had no expensive books to buy; out teachers allowed us to reproduce their books
  13. papers were available right outside the classrooms
  14. experienced having make up classes at our teacher's house/pad
  15. experienced joining a National-level competition
  16. EXPERIENCED SURVIVING THE FUNNY WAY
  17. EXPERIENCED UTMOST SPIRITUAL GROWTH... IT WAS IN MSU WHERE I HAD A LOT OF SOLITARY MOMENTS WITH GOD. I GRADUATED THEN WITH SO MANY DIARIES (NOTEBOOKS; WITH MY LETTERS TO GOD) TO BRING.
What else?

I know there were a lot, which I haven't recalled yet and I know that there are much more than these in MSU now.

Japan: Stores are Closed; Shelves are Empty of Food Only Liquor

From BBC Live:

1541:
The BBC's Chris Hogg in Tokyo says stores are running out of supplies and don't know when fresh stock will arrive. A shopping mall near the BBC office has been closed and none of the restaurants are open, he says. Some stores say they are closing to save energy supplies, following a government appeal. Streets "quieter than normal, almost deserted".
-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-12307698 -
I don't really know how Japan will cope with this unexpected crises. You see how a developed country can be so devastated. We don't really know what's ahead of us. I just thank God for sparing the Philippines. God has given the Philippines so many chances already. I hope and pray that Japan's tragedy will be enough to awaken the Filipinos. From what? From all sorts of evil ways.

Dream House

Every child dreams of having a decent house. Back when I was a little girl, my dream house was a house around a fruit farm; a house surrounded by beautiful flowers with plenty of farm animals and a swimming pool. We had a small fruit farm, but we didn’t have a house there. There was just a very small hut where we could rest or hide ourselves should it rain. We didn’t have a farm animal, while some neighbors had plenty. We were glad that a creek was just along our small farm. My siblings used to bathe themselves joyfully and I could still remember my younger brother being sucked by that haemophagic leech. Those blissful experiences influenced my childhood dream of a house. And, that dream is still my dream today, minus the swimming pool as I don’t find it practical yet.

On Hospital Uniforms

I stayed in the hospital for five times already, of course I don’t want for more. The first was in 1981 when I was born of which I don’t know how everything looked like; second was in 2007 when my mother attacked from hypertension; the third and fourth were last year – 2010 – when I delivered my baby and when we had him admitted a month after for a water-borne disease; and, the last one was January of this year, when my husband was confined for measles.

During my stay in 2007, things were really far-off to me except for those in scrubs and in white lab coats. Yet, I would wonder about the difference in colors of these hospital uniforms. Definitely, those in white scrubs were nurses, while those in white lab coats were doctors. ‘What about those pale green scrubs, light blue scrubs, pastel yellow scrubs, and animated scrubs,’ I wondered. As always, I don’t wanna die in wonder, so, I asked those people in scrubs; then I knew that those in pale green scrubs were machine operators, those in light blue scrubs were medical technologists, those in pastel yellow scrubs were physical therapists, while those in animated scrubs were nursing aides and caregivers.

Scrub color assignments differ though from one hospital to another. One good thing I like about the variety of hospital uniforms is that medical workers are easily recognized.

Japanese Songs

Last December my Japanese boss gave me an Apple iPod classic. Since he's a Japanese, the iPod contains more than a hundred Japanese songs. Although I don't understand the language, I still like listening to many songs because of the soft beat, ballad, and classical styles. I researched the lyrics of some of the songs I like and I was happy because they have English translations online. Fortunately, those I like are of good meaning.

Wallets

Wallets. How much do you have?

I have quite a lot of small small wallets in my room. I did not really buy them. Not anyone of them. Everything was given by aunts, friends, sisters, church mates, and as mercury drug store giveaway. Last night after purchasing several items from mercury drug, the pharmacist handed me another mercury drug wallet. So, I have 3 mercury drug wallets now. I have always asked myself how should I use them, then I remember that every December my family is giving away goods and items to our relatives. So, let me just keep these mercury drug wallets until December.

Small Desk

When I first opened my small business enterprise, among the first furniture I bought was a desk for the cashier. I chose the one which has two drawers. The first drawer is for the cash, while the second is for the receipts and the book of accounts.

For now, this small desk is enough because we are yet starting. Eventually, we will buy the big one to accommodate and organize stuff like keys, chains, and padlocks while the store is open; tax and other government-required documents; some small belongings of my staff; and basic things like cutters, scissors, tapes, staplers and staple wires, clips, calculators, pens, and markers.

If...Now

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."



If you wish to travel a long journey, take the first step now and move on.
If you want to reap, sow now.
If you want to receive, give now.
If you want to be blessed, bless someone now.
If you want to achieve something, start doing for it now.
If you want to draw a line, point the dot now.

Chairs and Comfort

Eversince I started working, office chairs matter to me as it gives comfort especially when I had to think, write, or move a lot. Depending on the type of work I’ll be doing, but when I need to move a lot, I prefer the Athens type office chair. With this, I can easily stretch my hand to reach for something or move the chair quickly as it is lighter compared to other office chairs.

There are days when I need to think and write a lot. In times like these, I prefer an ergonomic executive office chair where I can rest my arms and my back and think deeper. Working while sitting on an ergonomic office chair is very relaxing and comforting.

Refurbishing a Bathroom

Last year we had our bathroom refurbished to make it auspicious to persons with disabilities (or let me call them patients). We widen our bathroom first such that a patient and a caregiver can be accommodated at once. Then, we opted for a bristly floor tiles to be sure that when the floor gets wet it wouldn’t become slippery. We also added a handle bar where patients may anchor their hands on or even put their weights on to when taking steps. We preferred a handheld shower so that when caregivers assist their patients in taking showers, the caregivers may be able to control the water flow so as not to get wet, too. We thought as well of putting a concrete chair where patients can just sit on while enjoying showers, but we changed our minds thinking that it would just narrow down the space. Anyways, patients and caregivers may opt for a portable chair. Finally, we repainted our bathroom with bright colors and improved its ventilation to make it really comfortable.

PR 1

I'm so surprised today to see the PR 1 icon. I had been leaving this site unheeded; often d ismayed by daily results. I turned to wordpress and created a new account. As much as I could I'd want to focus on few things as I'd want to establish a niche blog. However, I haven't really found one single interest yet; one that I could really update new things every day that could be of help to many people.

Anyhow, I'd like to thank all my visitors for making kokijar PR 1. I hope this will sustain and even get better.
