love letters… Setyembre 26, 2008

Filed under: english alphabet,food for the thought,for the record,tear jerker — nixinne @ 9:18 hapon

it always makes me cry…i love reading them even if it is not written for me..it alwasy seems to me that it is a reminder of undying love that is retained in a letter. Never in reality that what is said in a letter will hold forever and ever. i guess that is why i like it. it retains the purity of the mind and heart of the writer during those moments…

here are some examples of them…

Dear Holly, I don’t have much time. I don’t mean literally, I mean you’re out buying ice cream and you’ll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn’t to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It’s to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful… literally. If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you’re sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you’ll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honor of being my wife. I’m a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. You made my life, Holly. But I’m just one chapter in yours. There’ll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don’t be afraid to fall in love again. Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends. P.S. I will always love you

(Excerpt from : PS I Love You [the movie])

i still have to write down the letter of garett to theresa on the book “message in a bottle”…that also made me cry…

 

toothache Abril 18, 2007

Filed under: for the record,nurse's notes — nixinne @ 8:33 umaga

emergency room is for emergency medical problems not for a simple toothache. but some people take for granted what the emergency services are for. especially for people who does not have any insurance.

 i am not saying that if you do not have insurance that you do not have the right for an emergency medical treatment. if you have a real medical emergency, i suggest that you go to your nearest emergency department immediately, with or without an insurance. but please, do not go to the emergency room if you have a toothache that does not have any symptoms of infection. get to your local health department for a free consultation on where to get a free dental service or the most affordable one. most counties have these services. do not waste your time and the time of the medical staff in emergency room for a simple toothache because of a dental cavity.

if you are running a fever, have pus like secretions, or serious swelling in your gums then by all means come to the emergency department, but otherwise, go to your dentist!

and do not cuss the doctor that was trying to treat your simple toothache in the ED. you will get thrown out by security and be blacklisted on your local emergency department!

i just dont understnad why people do this!!!

 

Tragedy at VA Tech Abril 17, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,food for the thought,for the record — nixinne @ 8:33 hapon

I cant believe this has happened! i woke up yesterdya afternoon tryign to see whats happening in new england and i watched several stations unfold the virginia tech shootings…i grieve for those who lost their friends and family in this tragedy…i hope the soul of the gunman finds its peace and may we find the reason for this massacre so as to be a lesson for all of us…

Shooter named as campus grievesPolice have identified the gunman who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech before turning the gun on himself as 23-year-old South Korean student Cho Seung-Hui. The campus is still reeling from Monday’s rampage, the deadliest school shooting incident in U.S. history. School President Charles Steger called the killings “a tragedy of monumental proportions.”…
 

FULL STORY AT CNN.COM

i could not fathom how everybody feels about this incident. i wanted to know what the reason is behind this shootings..what could have cho seung-hui experienced to push him into doing this? could he have been matreated as a child? who are his parents? did he have any friends? was he a good student? did anybody considered him as a friend? was he maltreated by society itself? does he have a ny domestic problems? financial problems?

 too many questions and yet no answers on to why…it will take time i know but i hope whatever he has gone through should be a lesson to all of us so we dont produce a shooter like this loner guy in virginia tech university…

 

Bessy

ChicoIt’s my bessy’s birthday today. I just want to wish him a Happy Birthday and a million more years to come. I also wanted to let everybody know how much he made my life easier just by being there to listen.. and helping me with blogging, getting me a laptop when i really needed it the most, lending me a shoulder to cry on whenever i have a heartache, setting up and organizing my gmail, helping my mom fix her computer even though i am seven hundred miles away, discussing my very shallow knowledge of philosophy, by helping me question the abstracts of life and by realizing my potentials…

There are a lot more things that he has done for me that i have not mentioned but am very thankful for…but most of all, i just wanted to thank him for being a very good friend that he is…

 

i will never ever forget that day that he wrote me a note that he considered me one of his best friends. It was a priviledge to be one of them. I will never ever forget him and he will always be in my heart and in my thoughts. I am honored that he chose me to be his “bessy”, i will treasure that till the end of time…

 

I just wish he’ll found the happiness and contentment that he wants, nothing less than he deserves…

 

He is one of a kind, generous, forgiving, patient, loyal, intelligent and a great friend, brother, cousin, nephew, etc to all those people he touched with his mind and heart. He has a heart of gold, a soul of truth and a mind of a true philosopher…

 

To CHICO…May you have a great birthday today and may you have many more years to come. please do not get tired of reading whatever you read everyday, it always makes you sound so smart…he he he! Do not stop blogging because you make a difference in this world with your words of wisdom. Please do not get tired of my nonsense dialogues with you especially if the topic is mike and my son. I thank you for being there for me all this time. I promise to be here for you whenever you need me. I really dont know what i would have done on those times that i came to you so i could cry nonstop because of a love that is lost and all the other things that cannot be described by words. Youre truly a special friend…I missed you so much (since we are several states apart) and do not forget that i love you!!! Take care always…

Filed under: english alphabet,food for the thought,for the record — nixinne @ 6:11 hapon

 Our Miss Universe bet this year may have a good chance of getting our country the honor of having the third Ms. Universe title claimed by a Filipina beauty. She does not only have the exotic beauty that most woman want but also has the brains of a summa cum laude graduate of the prestigious University of the Philippines!

This is an excerpt from a Philippine newspaper, Manila Standard.

From UP summa to Miss Universe bet

By Giovanni Paolo J. Yazon
THE University of the Philippines has re-affirmed itself as the “superior source of national beauties” for the 11th time!

A 22-year-old broadcast communication summa cum laude graduate and sophomore law student from Diliman campus named Anna Theresa Luy Licaros won the top plum in the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant staged at the Big Dome last month.

Standing at 5-feet-9 with a voluptuous 33”-25”-34” figure, this Batangueña will be our bet in the Miss Universe pageant to be staged at the National Auditorium in Mexico City, Mexico, on May 29.

“Tere,” her nickname, now joins the list of past “UP beauties in Miss Universe,” namely: Maria del Carmen “Chuchay” dos Remedios Tuason (1958), Vida Valentina Fernandez Doria (Miss Photogenic in 1971), Lizbeth Samson de Padua (1976), Criselda Geronima “Dang” Flores Cecilio (1979), Maria Isabel Pagunsan Lopez (Top 20 Best in Swimsuit in 1982), Joyce Ann Fellosas Burton (1985), Sara Jane Davis Paez (1989), Nina Ricci Caldo Alagao (2000), Zorayda Ruth Blanco Andam (Best in National Costume 1st runner-up in 2001) and Lia Andrea Aquino Ramos (Miss Photogenic in 2006)…

Correction of Error: Republic Act 9048 Marso 22, 2007

Filed under: business attire,english alphabet,for the record — nixinne @ 3:56 hapon

I just have a problem with my son’s birth certificate. There is an error with my age in my son’s birth certificate. Sa mga nakakakilala sa akin, wag nang magtanong! So i researched some stuff regarding this. I think i am just stupid with law becasue i just cannot understand this. Maybe some of you who would come across this would give me and insight on my situation. It is MY age and NOT my son’s age that i will be changing. So therefore i wouldnt be making any changes in my son’s sex, age, nationality and status.

Do i really need a judicial court order to change this?

It says here… “correction of clerical or typographical errors in any entry in civil registry documents, except corrections involving the change in sex, age, nationality and status of a person.”

Does this pertain to the owner of the birth certificate ONLY ? or does this also pertain to everybody that is involved in the birth certificate? (mother, father?)

Please HELP!

Republic Act 9048
Act Authorizing the C/MCR or Consul General
to Correct a Clerical or Typographical Error
in an Entry and/or Change of First Name
or Nickname in the Civil Register
Without Need of a Judicial
Order

WHAT IS REPUBLIC ACT 9048?

Republic Act (RA) 9048 authorizes the city or municipal civil registrar or the consul general to correct a clerical or typographical error in an entry and/or change the first name or nickname in the civil register without need of a judicial order.

RA 9048 amends Articles 376 and 412 of the Civil Code of the Philippines, which prohibit the change of name or surname of a person, or any correction or change of entry in a civil register without a judicial order.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo approved the act on 22 March 2001. With the law taking effect on 22 April 2001, the Civil Registrar-General promulgated Administrative Order No. 1 Series of 2001, which was published in the newspaper in August that year.

WHAT CORRECTIONS CAN BE MADE BY RA 9048?

RA 9048 allows these corrections:

correction of clerical or typographical errors in any entry in civil registry documents, except corrections involving the change in sex, age, nationality and status of a person.
(A clerical or typographical error refers to an obvious mistake committed in clerical work, either in writing, copying, transcribing, or typing an entry in the civil register that is harmless and innocuous, such as a misspelled name or misspelled place of birth and the like, and can be corrected or changed only by reference to other existing record or records.)

change of a person’s first name in his/her civil registry document under certain grounds specified under the law through administrative process.

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS UNDER RA 9048 THAT THE PETITIONER NEEDS TO COMPLY WITH?

(1) The petitioner finds the first name or nickname to be ridiculous, tainted with dishonor or extremely difficult to write or pronounce;

(2) The new first name or nickname has been habitually and continuously used by the petitioner and he has been publicly known by that first name or nickname in the community; or,

(3) The change will avoid confusion.

WHO MAY FILE THE PETITION?

Whether it is for correction of clerical or typographical error, or for change of first name, the petition may be filed by a person of legal age who must have a direct and personal interest in the correction of the error or in the change of first name in the civil register.

A person is considered of legal age when he is eighteen years old and above. Thus, a minor (less than eighteen years old) cannot by himself file a petition, either for correction of clerical or typographical error or for change of his first name.

Only the following persons are considered to have a direct and personal interest in the correction of clerical error or change of first name:

Owner of the record that contains the error to be corrected or first name to be changed

Owner’s spouse, children, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, guardian, or any other person duly authorized by law or by the owner of the document sought to be corrected.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE FORM AND CONTENT OF THE PETITION?

The petition, whether it is for correction of clerical error or for a change of first name, should be accomplished properly and in the prescribed form. Section 5 of RA 9048 and Rule 8 of Administrative Order No. 1, S. 2001 require that the petition should be in the form of an affidavit, hence, it should be subscribed and sworn to before a person authorized to administer oath.

Basically, the petition must contain the following facts or information:

Merits of the petition
Competency of the petitioner
Erroneous entry to be corrected and proposed correction; first name to be changed and the proposed new first name

WHAT SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS ARE REQUIRED FOR CORRECTING A CLERICAL OR TYPOGRAPHICAL ERROR IN A CIVIL REGISTRY DOCUMENT?

The petition shall not be processed unless the petitioner supports it with the required documents. The supporting documents should be authentic and genuine, otherwise, the petition shall be denied or disapproved pursuant to Rule 5.8 of Administrative Order No. 1, S. 2001. The following supporting documents are admissible as basic requirements:

Certified machine copy of the certificate containing the alleged erroneous entry or entries

Not less than 2 public or private documents upon which the correction shall be based. Examples of these documents are the following: baptismal certificate, voter’s affidavit, employment record, GSIS/SSS record, medical record, school record, business record, driver’s license, insurance, land titles, certificate of land transfer, bank passbook, NBI/police clearance, civil registry records of ascendants, and others.

Notice and Certificate of Posting

Certified machine copy of the Official Receipt of the filing fee

Other documents as may be required by the City/Municipal Civil Registrar (C/MCR)

WHAT ARE THE SUPPORTING PAPERS FOR CHANGE OF FIRST NAME?

As in the case of correction of clerical error, no petition for change of first name shall be accepted unless the petitioner submits the required supporting papers, as follows:

All the documents required of the petitioner for the correction of clerical error shall also be required of the petitioner for change of first name.

Clearance from authorities such as clearance from employer, if employed; the National Bureau of Investigation; the Philippine National Police; and other clearances as may be required by the concerned C/MCR.

Proof of Publication. An affidavit of publication from the publisher and copy of the newspaper clippings should be attached.

HOW MUCH IS THE FEE IN FILING A PETITION?

The C/MCR and the District/Circuit Registrar (D/CR) are authorized to collect from every petitioner the following rates of filing fees:

One thousand pesos (P1,000.00) for the correction of clerical error

Three thousand pesos (P3,000.00) for the change of first name
In the case of a petition filed with the Consul General (CG), the fees are the same for all Philippine Consulates. The fees are the following:

Fifty U.S. dollars ($50.00) for the correction of clerical or typographical error

One hundred fifty U.S. dollars ($150.00) for the change of first name
A migrant petitioner shall pay an additional service fee to the Petition Receiving Civil Registrar (PRCR).

This service fee shall accrue to the local treasury of the PRCR.

Five hundred pesos (P500.00) for correction of clerical or typographical error

One thousand pesos (P1,000.00) for change of first name

WHERE SHOULD THE PETITION BE FILED?

The general rule is that petition shall be filed with the Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO) where the record containing the clerical error to be corrected or first name to be changed is kept. Included in this general rule is the case of the Office of the Clerk of Shari’a Court where records of divorces, revocations of divorces, conversions to Islam are kept and where some Muslim marriages are registered.

However, in case the petitioner is a migrant within or outside the Philippines, meaning his present residence or domicile is different from where his civil registry record or records are registered, he may file the petition in the nearest LCRO in his area. His petition will be treated as a migrant petition.

philosophical analysis of happiness and success Pebrero 20, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,for the record,yada yada yada — nixinne @ 1:50 hapon

i posted someting about happiness and success and i just wanted to share what this is all about in this post and my long-ass reply to that one. im nore into reading this than reading my own philosophy book since i am enrolled in such a class at this time!!

i agree. drama is much more exaggerated when we were younger. i guess, as we grow older, some of us realized the inconvenience of such thing.

– Bulong Sa Hangin Says: February 20th, 2007 at 7:34 am
But sometimes, “adult drama” is more dramatic. Redundant, eh?

– and this is what my reply is…

would agree to both of you in some way (darn, i think im becoming more and more of a relativist than anythign else!). i guess we have so much emotion growing up that everything is exaggerated i.e. lost paper, a fight over a spilled soda, a bruise on the knee etc then it becomes worst when you become a teenager, when friends and lovers becomes a part of your being. it cooks up a much rather mixed portion of emotions. then as our hormones and neurotransmitters shrink in numbers to oblivion (as we grow old), the aftermath of these are less emotic human being that has a broader view of the world…that is, if you ever find the right motiviation to do so! so what im really saying is it is not just getting older that makes you wiser…the drama prevails in everyone’s life, be it may a child, adolescent or an adult, it is also the experiences that comes along with the everyday chaos we have to undergo everyday, how we perceive the experience and how we deal with it!
