I don't know why but I just love to eat whenever the temperature is low and the atmosphere is cold. It really makes me crave to munch on something that's sweet.... And what I have in mind right now is this yummy, sweet and creamy mango float.
My sister just made me one last Monday for my birthday and to my utmost disappointment, it was consumed instantly before I even had the chance to savor it more a bit longer or take a photo of it. At least we enjoyed the yummy sweet dessert especially my one-year-old nephew. Thank you sis!

It's also going to be the Iglesia ni Cristo Day. This is the 95th Anniversary of Inglesia Ni Cristo. And here in Davao, Mayor Duterte granted their request for some roads to be temporarily closed in order to give way to their big celebration. I just wished GMA declared this day as a non-working holiday. I'm sure a lot of us will definitely welcome an extended weekend rest.
Lastly, this day marks my 30th birthday! Happy birthday to me. This is a special day for me so I'm celebrating it together with the special people in my life, my Family :) And what does my birth date mean? Here it is...very tame and spiritual. lol

Leo (7/23 – 8/22)
You've got some serious mojo pushing you forward today -- you've got to make sure that you don't stop for anything! Your persistence should pay off in the not too distant future, so keep it up.Take the more difficult route today -- sure, it could tax your energy to the maximum limit, but in the end it will reward you with a great pride that will feed your ego in a profound and powerful way. Besides, coasting through life is not for you -- you need and relish a unique challenge, and you might be given a very captivating one today. You are learning (slowly but surely) to appreciate the fact that when a goal is too easy to attain, it is not as fulfilling as a hard-won victory.

I'm such a sports buff and up to now I am still in a state of euphoria after SMB (SanMiguel Beerman), my favorite basketball team in the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) won a sweet victory over their greatest nemesis in the league last Friday. As I was surfing the net for any news tidbits about their fantastic game I stumble upon fantasy football. At first it sounded way too foreign to me but it was too interesting plus I also love football game that I took more time to know how it works.
It's a computer game wherein you can be a participant by building your own team that competes against other fantasy teams based on the statistics generated by the real-life American football players on the field. The team with most total points at the end of the season, gets to be the winner.

I had to attend a Christmas party that time and my classmates had been plaguing me that it's going to be a sweater party. Upon knowing this, I was already thinking of something to wear for such occasion. Although I had previously prepared a totally different outfit. Being a kid, I wouldn't want to be left out in the crowd. So when I went home, I hurried to my room in order to search for a sweater I could wear... But to my utmost disappointment I didn't find one. My wardrobe that time was just limited to jackets but not one that I could show-off at the party. Then I remembered my mother stored some old clothes in another room. I rummage the entire room and thoroughly searched for the item I've been looking. And there, I found it! A midst the old bed linens and curtains, I found the right sweater. It's my mom's. It's white in color, knitted and actually quite big for my size. But beggars can't be choosers so I had to make do with it. The following day, I went to the party wearing the ghastly sweater without my mother's knowledge. And as expected I was sweating all over and very uncomfortable the whole time. Just imagine, I wore layers of clothes just to fit in the bigger size of the sweater and that's what I got. lol
Well if you are planning to attend or deciding to have a sweater party do check these ultra cool, colorful, fun and stylish sweaters from Ugly Sweaters.

YOU MAY POISON YOURSELF ACCIDENTALLY!
Taiwan, a woman suddenly died unexpectedly with signs of bleeding from her ears, nose, month & eyes. After a preliminary autopsy it was diagnosed death due to arsenic poisoning death. Where did the arsenic come from?
The police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to come to solve the case. The professor carefully looked at the contents from the deceased's stomach, in less than half an hour, the mystery was solved. The professor said: 'The deceased did not commit suicide and neither was she murdered, she died of accidental death due to ignorance!'
Everyone was puzzled, why accidental death? The arsenic is of the U.S. military for carrying rice seedlings H Gao. The professor said: 'The arsenic is produced in the stomach of the deceased.' The deceased used to take 'Vitamin C' everyday, which in itself is not a problem. The problem was that she ate a large portion of shrimp/prawn during dinner. Eating shrimp/prawn is not the problem that's why nothing happened to her family ever though they took the same shrimp/prawn. However at the same time the deceased also took 'vitamin C', that is where the problem is!
Researchers at the University of Chicago in the United States, found through experiments, food such as soft-shell shrimp/prawn contains a much higher concentration of - five potassium arsenic compounds.
Such fresh food by itself has no toxic effects on the human body! However, in taking 'vitamin C', due to the chemical reaction, the original non-toxic - five potassium arsenic (As anhydride, also known as arsenic oxide, the chemical formula for As205) changed to a three potassium toxic arsenic (ADB arsenic anhydride), also known as arsenic trioxide, a chemical formula (As203), which is commonly known as arsenic to the public!
Arsenic poisoning have magma role and can cause paralysis to the small blood vessels, "mercapto Jimei"??, inhibits the activity of the liver and fat necrosis change Hepatic Lobules Centre, heart, liver, kidney, intestine congestion, epithelial cell necrosis, telangiectasia. Therefore, a person who dies of arsenic poisoning will shows signs of bleeding from the ears, nose, mouth & eyes.
Therefore, as a precautionary measure, DO NOT not take shrimp/prawn when taking 'vitamin C'.
I'm no expert regarding this matter but talking about health, I think just have to let go of my vitamin C supplements than giving up on shrimps.... can't help it...I just love sea foods... :)
