Given the today's challenges that most Filipinos encounter, especially those who live in urban areas, stress and at the same time lacking the good nutrition and the exercise due to the seemingly busy routine -- takes a toll on most young professionals when it comes to help. Too early to have hypertension, diabetes, frequent asthma attacks, obesity and so much more, are plaguing the health of an urban Filipino professional. I myself is one of the 70% of Filipinos who are aging rapidly than they normally should. That 70% statistic was the result of a study done by the Youthopia Body Philippines Inc. in most young professionals in Metro Manila. 7 out of 10 have the rapid signs of aging. I am 25 yet my biological age is 29! Whoa! That's something not good.
This is done through a Body Age test in which the biological age is taken in comparison with your actual calendar age. It is already a proven technology in which it provides diagnosis on the state of one's health. Taking the Body Age Challenge would provide you a clearer perspective of the state of your overall health. Ideally, your biological age should be equivalent or even younger than your actual calendar age. Mine was the opposite. I really have to take up a challenge to change my life for the better!

Filipinos celebrate as Kraft Food's Eden Cheese and the Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA) set the world record for the most number of cheese dishes, with 5,845 of it in one day on December 14, 2009. In recognising the Filipino's rising up from the challenges, Guinness World Record officially declared the effort as a new world record.

Its not my first time in this situation. A lot of times, my photos were used without any written or oral permission. However, I am clear that I would allow my photos or works to be used by a third-party, as long as the owner is given credit--even by simply acknowledging the owner itself. Oh well, yes, its another classic example of intellectual property violation--and here in the Philippines, I don't know whether its the ignorance of the law that made it a widespread practice or is it the implementation of the law--since we have so many laws yet I don't know if our justice system is working--or conking even!
Just recently, I saw one of my photos displayed on East Avenue, in front of the LTFRB office. According to the tarp, its under Dangerous Drug Board together with other government agencies. The tarpaulin displays a big "Be Drug Free, Drive Safely!" programme of the said agency. With that is my photo of EDSA's traffic jam at Mandaluyong City. I said, whoa! There's my watermark...but what happened to the other watermark which clearly stated my name, copyright, year it was taken, websites (in case of contact) and most of all, this quote: "Not allowed to be published OR used in any commercial purposes without the written permission or consent from the owner." Something tells me that the one who created it was aware that it has an owner and is under his copyright, however, he/she undermined it and cropped the watermark out of the picture.

Its just a few days away (or a week from now) before the most critical decision of the nation unfolds. The Philippine national elections is set on 10th of May, 2010. That's next Monday already! The fate or the future of the entire Filipino nation rests on the hands of its citizens. The difference is, a lot may be shocked or confused as the polls goes automated. No longer we have to write our candidates in our ballots and be counted manually. However, it posed worries amongst the voters whether they'll do the right thing in the ballots. This however, should not hinder Juan de la Cruz to vote. In spreading awareness of the importance of participating in the national elections, Krispy Kreme (KK) launched "DOugh YOUR PART."
