Now looking back and analyzing the series of manifestations my grandfather had, one could surmise that he did not just suffer from an ordinary old age process but instead, he might have had Dementia. The progressive loss of his cognitive function, especially his memory loss, impaired judgment, personality changes, and changes in social behavior were all part of dementia symptoms. According to my cousin, there was also a time he would repeatedly tell a story about the Japanese time. And my cousin, who unfortunately didn't have the right knowledge in dealing such situations, and was obviously alien about understanding dementia was easily irritated and responded the wrong way. My grandfather became fully dependent even in performing activities of daily living. It was really a rough time for my cousin, my mother, and my aunts who took turns in taking care of him.
Without understanding dementia, I can just imagine how difficult the situation was for them, or for anyone who has a family member suffering from such illness. Having no knowledge about it, they become easily frustrated and would sometimes even cause harm to the affected person. I wished my grandfather had proper consultation that time so that with proper diagnosis and knowledge of the disease we were somehow able to get proper dementia treatment for my grandfather and deal better with him.
Has it ever crossed your mind? Well for a single lady like me who hasn't found the right guy I want to spend the rest of my life with, this thought has certainly crossed my mind not once but for a thousand time.lol
Marrying a person for practical reasons and not out of love or intimacy might sound heartless and desperate to some. However, the romantic side of me would beg to argue and hoped that a couple who went into this kind of arrangement will eventually find themselves in love with each other. hehe Too mushy eh?! I think this is what I got from reading too much romantic novels.
But seriously, I have given it a thought for practical reasons, and mainly a means for me to go abroad, but then again it's just a thought, for now...:) Duh!!! As if I am getting any younger, somehow I could already feel my biological clock is ticking.
But now it's different. Going on a diet does not have to mean missing out on palatable meals and eliminating the joys of eating good food. You can always choose to eat healthy with the help of protein supplements . They are high protein diet foods which are packed with adequate nutrition promoting a healthy way of losing weight. At DietDirect.com you will find a wide selection of appetizing protein supplements from their yummy desserts, shakes & drinks, snacks, meal replacements and much more. I simply love pudding and chocolate shakes and would love to try out one of their products. I am sure this will be a treat for me or for anyone who is still in the traditional tasteless diet foods.
Judy Ann Santos will be making a comeback on Philippine TV arena next week during primetime and in her press con she made an announcement regarding a shift in her career which is ----she will no more have a love scene or kissing scene. What a pity! Especially if you will be paired with such gorgeous hunk, Derek Ramsey, oh such a waste. lol

There was also a time I spend my entire day having computer games and when I got bored with what I was playing, I would search the web again for game torrents and find the latest and most exciting game there is. Even the old ones are fun to play with and my favorite is the Super Mario. So guys, if one day you find yourself bored and wanting to relax your weary mind, have a break from serious topics and get into a nice game. Just look for the right game torrents and let yourself have fun.

We went for a nature trip about three weeks ago in order to celebrate my friend's birthday and at the same time, unwind from our busy schedules at work. In a spur of the moment, we all agreed to go camping at a mountain resort here in Davao City. Our eagerness to make this activity happen could not be quench. And so we made everything possible in a very short time for our planned trip. When we finally got there, the view was undoubtedly fantastic and amazingly serene. We went first for a chattel tour, followed by a sumptuous buffet lunch and last, a short hiking. We basked in the nature's spectacle and almost felt relaxed during the day. However, when we finally decided to retire and take a rest, my friend screamed that she forgot to bring the airbed. Adding to that it was even raining that time. Well what can we do??? We end up sleeping in a very damp, cold, and very uncomfortable mattress. As much as we wanted to blame her for the situation we were in, we can't because she is the celebrant.
If only my friend hadn't been so careless that time, we would not have suffered from such inconvenience. The elevated air beds are waterproof, inflatable, handy and very practical to use. Some are designed to make you comfortable even without a pillow. They are very useful during camping trips, for college students living on boarding houses, or when you simply want to take a sleep outside your ordinary bed. Next time we'll have a camping trip, an airbed should be the first thing on our checklist. And if you ever decide to get one for yourself, be sure to check out first things to consider in buying an air mattress.

I used to have various types of gold fishes before, but unfortunately they died tragically when we had a brownout and electricity was cut off for more than 8 hours. I felt bad because they have been with me for more than a year and they've really grown quite big already... Now, I am simply contented taking care of this solitary Flowerhorn. We were nursing 3 other younger flowerhorns, aside from this big one, but since all three were placed in the same aquarium, only one was left alive, and she is still waiting to get bigger.

I stumbled upon Sleepwellbaby.com and was really amazed they have these wonderful products all designed to help you achieve a good night's sleep and better relaxation through the help of a sound machine and a white noise machine. A sound machine will give you a soothing nature ambiance with the sound of a bubbling crook, rain, or waterfall and other calming sounds you want to hear to lull you into a deep relaxing sleep. This is really ideal especially if you live in a big and noisy environment. It's like going to a dreamland for a sleep or mountain area without the hassles of getting in contact with mosquito bites and creepy crawling creatures.
A white noise machine which comes in different forms is also another tool which stimulates relaxation and good sleeping pattern. It is manipulated to give a pleasurable sound while you try to relax. Some of the sounds included are that of a mother's womb (best for lulling babies), heartbeat, rain, surf, and brook. I remembered my friend mentioned to me that she can't sleep without turning the television on. For her to be able to sleep, she lets the television on until she falls asleep. I think this is what she needs. I will definitely suggest this to her.

My friend is on the process of refurnishing her newly built house somewhere in DECA Homes and she has promised to invite all of us to grace her elegant house once it is perfectly done. She particularly pays more attention to the bedroom since it is her favorite spot of the house. And with her flair for classy, elegant and expensive furniture, I am certain that a contemporary bedroom set is what she needs. I will definitely suggest it to her to complete the look she aims to achieve. We are all excited and dying to see her new haven.
Now, time to get real and get busy because once again we are full house in our station. Another toxic day! Good luck to the coming days.

Well, I did really enjoy spending my time that I almost forgot to take a bath and eat my dinner. I became so engrossed with what I was doing that I forgot I had been using the Internet for quite a while until my mother knocked on my door and called me up to show my face at the dinner table. Good thing I was off duty so no need to rush.

On the other hand, it has its own benefits. For one, we are having our laundry done and I'm sure that in no time at all, the clothes and linens will all get dry.

I will surely have the ill-effects of my actions in a week or two after I weigh myself. Actually, I could use a little weight but I am just bothered gaining fats around my tummy area and thighs. If I have the money, I would not think twice and would willingly undergo a Liposuction to remove these unwanted excess fats. It would be so convenient and a sure treat to any woman :) But I don't. So I guess I will just have to go on a diet and engage more in a physical activity to burn some fats.
Goodbye 2009 and Hello 2010!!!
For this year, I am hoping to accomplish my top most New Year's Resolution which is to live a healthier life...eat right, exercise and THINK RIGHT! I've got a lot more on my list but I'd like to keep it to myself first and work to make it happen. :)
