Shining Inheritance

We spend one weekend watching the whole 28 episodes of Korean TV drama Shining Inheritance. It was worth watching and Pinoys can easily relate to the characters played by Go Eun Sung (Inna in the Tagalized version of GMA7) and Sun Woo Hwan (Juan). It was aired on GMA7 last year.

Aside from the love angle the series also give emphasis to the value of compassion. It says that you can always show sympathy to a poor man lying on the street but it’s rare that one will suffer with him literally (lay beside him on the cold pavement).

Here’s a brief description of the series:

This will be focusing on the love and trials of the 20 year old generation. Go Eun Sung’s life is similar to Cinderella’s. After her father died, her step-mother, Baek Sung Hee, took away all of her assets and her younger brother, Eun Woo, suddenly disappears without a trace. Eun Sung persevere and works really hard to become a chef at a food company. The grandson of the food company, Sun Woo Hwan, notices Eun Sung and falls in love with her.

Disaster preparedness

I got these bits of disaster preparedness info from Senator Dick Gordon during an interview with him with other fellow health reps in 2005 during the book launching of World Disasters Report 2005. I hope this helps like the post that I share here.

1. Color signage in every post to indicate when people should evacuate their houses.

Yellow indicates evacuation
Red residents should go on top of their roof   (help will arrive)

2. In times of calamity people should be able to learn how and where to get help.

3. Barangay Disaster Action Teams should be created in different areas nationwide to immediately respond to calamity victims.

Practice – refer to disaster response drill
Predicting – a disaster, terrorist attack, etc.
Cope and Mitigate – coping with the disaster and
then mitigating the impact of the disaster, relieving food and
medicine
Rehabilitation – raise house, help find job

Single and ready to mingle

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Smingle.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

I met my husband through online chatting. We were actually officemates. I was detailed at the editorial department and him at the MIS department. During those days when email is not yet a fad reporters would send stories through phone via dictation, or fax or thru BBS (Bulletin Board System) where they can post messages and send digital file. One day, someone sent me a message through BBS while I’m ready to send a file using my laptop. I don’t remember the exact words all I remember was we were already exchanging pleasantries. The guy turned out to be my future boyfriend and now partner for life.

Virtual chatting has reached a different and exciting level today. You can now see what the other person looks like. It’s fascinating how Internet can connect people from different parts of the world at an instant. virtual dating sites also grow rapidly in number. While browsing the Net I chanced upon this site called Smingle. It’s a new social dating site with cool interactive elements. I still have single friends and want to introduce them to this kind of site where other eligible persons meet. Who knows they might meet their future partner there. I signed up and create a free account to see if they are appropriate for my single friends. It looks fun because members can create a fun 3D avatar that looks like the member and avatar respond naturally to typed text. “Singles can interact in a simulated dating environment online from the comfort of their own home.” I think I can recommend this site to my friends. You can also check out http://www.smingle.com too if you are single and ready to mingle!
