I heard that it is very devastating for a mesathelioma patient and even their love ones to experience this and with the certain cases pending plus situations that cant be avoided, you will need a very helpful lawyer. A friend of mine told me a story about a co-worker of her who is a mesathelioma victim and he had to asked the help of a Houston asbestos lawyer. Seeking professional help while you are sick is very hard so it is very essential to get a trusted professional who has the concern and the expertise of your situation and luckily my friend's colleague got lucky with his lawyer, now he is still suffering from the disease but is getting the attention that he deserves.

We watched it last Tuesday and it was a really funny movie. I thought I will get bored just like when we watched Cats and Dogs but this one is really hilarious. I even saw adults watching it with their dates. Plenty of kids watched it of course and I think our son loved the movie, I don't think I will let him watch it again though because I think for a 3 year-old, some of the action scenes are still too violent for him. Seeing it once is enough, when he's a bit more grown up then we can buy DVD and watch it again.
The supervillain Megamind finally conquers his nemesis, the hero Metro Man... but finds his life pointless without a hero to fight.
Catch it while you can, they have it in 3D as well.
I used to like this but then I started eating healthy and that includes not eating meat, (beef and pork). When I used to eat this, it is a requirement that there should be puto on the side.
Dinuguan (also called dinardaraan in Ilocano and tid-tad in Pampanga, or possible English translations: pork blood stew, blood pudding stew) is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat (typically stomach, intestines, ears, heart and snout) simmered in a rich, spicy dark gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili (most often siling mahaba), and vinegar. The term dinuguan comes from the Filipino word dugo meaning "blood". It is frequently considered an unusual or alarming dish to most people, though it is rather similar to European-style blood sausage, or British black pudding in a saucy stew form. It is perhaps closer in appearance and preparation to the ancient Spartan dish known as melas zomos (black soup) whose primary ingredients were pork, vinegar and blood. Dinuguan is often served with white rice or a Philippine rice cake called puto.
Will share with you the recipe I grabbed online since I have no idea how to cook this. hehehe...
1 kilo pork (diced)
1/8 kilo pork liver (diced)
1 small head of garlic (minced)
1 small onion (minced)
2 pieces laurel leaves
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons patis (fish sauce)
1-cup pig blood (frozen)
4 long green peppers
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
How to cook:
1. In a pot, simmer pork for 30 minutes and remove scum that rises to the surface. Keep stock.
2. In a casserole, heat oil and sauté garlic and onion for a minute.
3. Add in pork, pork liver, laurel leaves, patis, salt & pepper and sauté for another 5 minutes.
4. Add in vinegar and bring up to a boil without stirring.

To buy gold coins is one of the wisest thing to invest on especially that our economy is very unstable. Of course there are certain types of gold one of which is the gold krugerrands, which was was introduced in 1967, as a vehicle for private ownership of gold. It was actually intended to circulate as currency. Therefore it was minted in a more durable gold alloy, unlike most other bullion coins. My friends also invested in the krugerrands and so far with their team up with United States Gold Bureau, the best gold dealer in the US, they are doing very well. I don't think gold will be a very lucrative investment when it comes to coins but there are so much knowledge to acquire to be successful in this business and there is no other time but to start today!

If you invest in gold, it can be a highly fulfilling and pleasurable, you see collecting gold dates back to when coins were very first issued for trade. Come in the middle ages and people then started to turn it into an actual 'hobby' simply because of the unique artwork and historical value associated with coins. But coin collecting today is still a hobby that mostly collectors turned to business that a great number of people enjoy participating in, I should know because I have a couple of friends who are into this. One of the most precious and most expensive collections that anyone can ever have are those associated with gold coins, but having said that, it still represent amazingly good value and could just turn into a worthwhile investment proposition for you to add to your investment portfolio. Of course you should find a trusted gold dealer to help you earn profit and I heard so much about United States Gold Bureau as with anything my friends bought from them prosper. It is very wise to have a trust dealer so you can go on with your business without any flaw.
Philippines is known to have the longest yet merriest Christmas in the world. A part of the longest Filipino Christmas season is the traditional Simbang Gabi. This is a time when Catholic churches across the nation open the church doors shortly before he break of dawn to welcome faithfuls to the Simbang Gabi.
SIMBANG GABI is one of the longest and most popular among the Filipino traditions in the country. It is when Catholic churches across the nation start to open their doors shortly before the break of dawn to welcome the faithful to the Simbang Gabi mass.
Simbang Gabi or Mass at Dawn is a nine-day novena to the Blessed Mother. The novena begins December 16 as early as 4 in the morning and culminates with the “Misa de Gallo” on Christmas Eve to welcome the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. In some churches, the panuluyan is reenacted showing the effort of Joseph and Mary to find a suitable birthplace.
Simbang Gabi traces its roots in Mexico when, in 1587, the Pope granted the petition of Fray Diego de Soria, prior of the convent of San Agustin Acolman, to hold Christmas mass outdoors because the Church could not accommodate the huge number of people attending the evening mass.
During the old times, the pre-dawn mass is announced by the ringing of the church bells. In some rural areas, an hour before the start of Simbang Gabi, a brass band plays Christmas music all over the town. It is also believed that parish priests would go far knocking on doors to wake and gather the faithful to attend the misa de gallo. Farmers as well as fishermen wake up early to hear the Gospel before going to their work and ask for the grace of good harvest.
SIMBANG GABI NOW AND THEN
The changing of times does not break the preservation of celebrating Simbang Gabi although it is celebrated in new ways. Still, the tradition of Simbang Gabi continues. Part of it are the colorful lights and lanterns that fill every streets. Beautiful parols are hung in every window. Songs of the season are played everywhere to warm the hearts. Families, friends and even individuals find its way going to the nearest church to attend the nine-day novena. Shortly after the misa de gallo, families gather in their homes to celebrate Noche Buena and feasted on various delicacies like queso de bola, bibingka, puto bungbong, or a drink of salabat or hot chocolate.
Simbang Gabi has become one of the most popular traditions in the country. But it is not just a tradition that is celebrated because we need to do so. It is a significant moment not only because it strengthens relationships among family members but also because it is the time where our faith is intensified. This is the time where we mostly feel the presence of the Lord because it is the spiritual preparation for Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. It does not matter if one has the stamina to complete the novena or not, what really matters is what is inside the heart. The blessing does not depend on the number of mass attended, but what is important is the disposition of the person who receives the Lord’s blessing.
A lot of the kids today have no idea what's the REAL meaning of Christmas. All they know is that they will receive so may gifts from their love ones because it's Christmas, plus there are so many parties to attend to and the city is lighten up with all the lights and decorations but what is the TRUE reason of this celebration? That is of course, the birth of our savior Jesus Christ and I want to instill that to my son as early as his age of 3. So I will be asking my husband to bring us to Makati where they will showcase the true meaning of Christmas.
Conceived in 1987, façade of buildings along the City business district particularly Ayala and Buendia Avenue are decorated by crėches and complemented by locally made lanterns in celebration of Christmas on the birth of Jesus Christ.
This festivity will run from November 1 to December 16.
