Random thoughts, random photos, random memories

untitled (9)


I’ll be good  this time.   I’m not in the mood to rant and scream MURDER ! !




Hi  ! !



Going to show some random old photos.





Above ,with statues of Pres. Obama and Michelle in a  restaurant in the Philippines that is  full of odd decorations. ( Not shown  in the photo   are the huge statues of KingKong , Godzilla and Batman.





Man, I love that hat ! ! ( pic taken in Pisa, Italy)





I was rummaging thru thousands of photos in my file , and  got stoked, for the nth time,   when  I  saw     my 15 minutes of fame. …. I was on stage with Jason DeRulo, singing to me.   *  ah, this never gets old. *




I split the computer screen, and translate the manga I’m reading.  I spend so much time doing this.  Mangas  translated from Japanese into English are so slow in coming.  So, I go to Spanish and Italian websites. So, why not translate Japanese straight to English ?   Well, there are no Japanese characters in my computer.





I love crime/detective  books,  too…. so much so that I studied and got a degree in Forensics Biology.   That’s pretty hardcore , if I do say so myself.


As you can see from the photo above, my favorite crime author is Patricia Cornwell.










Had a glass or two  at this bar above  photo at  Boracay Island, Philippines.   Below photo is Boracay Island.  Pretty, isn’t it ?






I love the spiral staircase  , from the backgarden below to the covered rooftop of our house in the Philippines.




That’s my bedroom on the right, the one with sliding glass door. I wish I could transport our house, from the Philippines to the US.


Enough of random things.  I’ll be back for the serious stuff  next time.  Ackkk,  politics is so confusing.  I literally  have to choose  between the devil and the deep blue sea.


I might have to choose the devil.


But first,  I need to contemplate  what my role is in the universe.  That’s important.




Bye for now.

What I think

I think I’m living in the age of Voldemort  and Deatheaters.


It Is What It Is…..

An incident in the Philippines, Aug.21, 2020.


The city government also found that the establishment is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.


The beauty product  has in its label,  ”   Manufactured  for Elegant Beauty Products Inc.

 Address :  1st flr.. 707 Sto. Cristo St. , San Nicolas , Manila Province, P.R. China


Made in P.R.C   ( People’s Republic of China.) 


The label  brazenly says Manila is a province of China. 

Manila Mayor, Francisco Moreno , has called for the deportation of 2 Chinese nationals ( as undesirable aliens ) …….. they are two  of 5 owners that own the company (  the other  2  are  ” Filipinos ” with Chinese  last names, and one with Filipino   name , Lazada . )  They also found out that the  products have not been approved by the Philippines’ FDA ( Food and Drug Administration,} and immediately,  Manila’s Bureau of Permits closed 4 stalls  that sell these products  and closed and padlocked the building at the address indicated on the label.  ” I will write to the Bureau of Immigration to deport these Chinese nationals as undesirable aliens.”, the mayor said.



Chinese nationals and Filipino -Chinese are  notorious in  doing illegal and dishonest business in the Philippines. Fake products  from China.  ( In China, even Coke is being faked.)   Toxic food products.  ( Melamine in milk products , anyone ?} Sadly, and tragically,  they  can pass thru the  Bureau of Customs, the most corrupt agency in the Philippines.

Wait, let me tell you  a story…………..  My parents knew of a simple bodegero  (  a Customs employee who merely watched over stuff stored   at a Customs warehouse, called bodega. } ,but, from his measly government salary,   was able to own   3 SUVs and  a huuuge mansion.  In fact, we were invited for dinner at their  house when we were there on vacation.    In the house was an ugly, tacky , kind of  huge woody chandelier hanging from really high ceiling, and which I thought looked like the chandelier  at  Count Dracula’s castle.  That image of that chandelier  got stucked in my brain.


The Mrs. even bragged that  what she spent for curtains in her mansion was more than what she received from her lump sum retirement pension. Holy Molly !   He’s now deceased,  and unless he had confessed his sins  and  received the Last Sacraments before he bit the dust ,  I’m sure  where exactly he is now.   So corrupt.  Sorry, I digress


Moving on……..


Mayor Francisco Moreno is currently  the most dominant  political figure  in the Philippines, so I’m elated that he has finally conveyed  to his millions of constituents what he truly thinks about this grave situation  that is happening in the country ,  even mentioning the aggression  of  China in Philippine territorial seas in his Breaking News appearance on national TV, …..that is  in marked contrast to  President Rodrigo Duterte, who is  now clearly  seen as a coward, inutile ( how he actually describes himself when it comes to dealing with China ) and a lackey of  the Chinese Communist Party.  Because of his Build, Build, Build ambition, he is now owned by China. Debt, Debt, Debt.  He wants to surpass  the 75 -year achievements  of  past presidents  during his 6 -year term… he wants his Build, Build, Build programs  as monument to his greatness.  History will soon reveal that he buried the country with debt and sold off  the Philippines, literally, to a foreign country.  His remark ” Do you want the Philippines to be a territory of the US or a province of China. ? ”  That’s the origin of the Philippines, a province of China.  He’s now the laughing stock  of  Asia.  Filipinos smell treason. (   Idiotic question… the Philippines is the most pro-American country in the world. Take that with a grain of salt, but it’s a fact. I heard this on MSNBC…….. the  top 5 countries that love America. LOL   The notion of  the Philippine Armed Forces siding with China is laughable.  Take note :  In  early 2019 China sought  to lease 3 islands near  Subic Bay,  formerly the site  of the largest US naval base in the world. China said the lease would be used as tourist resorts.  *  snicker *    It was  vehemently rejected  and blocked by Philippine Armed Forces ,  saying that the country  should allow only  ”   close   Allies ” on   Subic Bay. .  What Filipinos do not know is that at least 100 US warships  every year still go to Subic.  So, instead,  it will be operated by an Australian -US  commercial venture.  To be honest,  I’m baffled by these developments. Duterte  sings the praises  of China openly but behind the scenes……. Philippine military and the US…….. you can speculate , of course.


Manila mayor Isko Moreno shares his personal life | The Bottomline ...


  • whisper *    I want Mayor Francisco Moreno  to run for President of the Philippines in 2022,  but…. * whisper *  I  pray  he’s not another Manchurian candidate.



Public surveys show that 77% of Filipinos want China to be held accountable for the spread of Covid, ” which has hammered the Philippine economy  more than its Southeast Asian neighbors and claimed thousands  of lives in the Philippines.  ”


I’m not stoking anti-something.  I just want readers to know what’s going on in some parts of the world. The news here in the US  are the  C-Virus and the coming 2020 election ,  24/7, and nothing else.  Even the nuclear-bomb -like blast in Lebanon didn’t make the grade.  Well, so okay, it was mentioned, but it sounded like an afterthought.   Americans should also be made aware  that’s what’s going on around the world will have a huge impact   on the planet’s future.


Do you guys know what happened in HongKong ? ? ?   My heart goes out to the people of HongKong.  But the world couldn’t do anything to help  HongKongers  because it is part of China.  The CCP  has taken over  HongKong.  It  has totally and  irrevocably lost its freedom ! ! !


Next is Taiwan.


And on-going…… the South China Sea, and all the territorial seas and sovereignity  of  the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia….  India, Brunei, Malaysia, the Himalayas,  are blatantly ,and brazenly being claimed by  Winnie the Pooh . China’s  Nine -Dash line encompasses almost 90 % of the whole area, running as far as 2,000 kilometers  from mainland China to within  a few  kilometers off Philippine coastline.

Just to let you know, fellow environmentalists…….




Do you know what the problem of the  so-called “progressives ” is?  Just because tRump’s government is in a “cold war” situation with that country,   they  ignore  the danger and the aggressiveness of this country, nay, they  even defend the stance of this country  ( I’ve read their blogs but if you’re reading  this, you know who you are ) …. because the ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND.


In the Philippine seas, Filipino fishermen are being harassed by Chinese militia  vessels on Philippine waters…. last year, a Filipino fishing vessel was rammed by a Chinese vessel, and sailed away ,leaving the fishermen in the the waters and were saved by Vietnamese fishermen…. then , just 3 weeks ago, the Chinese  again rammed a Filipino fishing vessel,  causing the death of 14 fishermen.


Also , last year, Chinese vessels vacuumed West Philippine Sea of giant clams  ( the biggest clams in the world are found in the Philippines ) ,and a Chinese vessel was caught on Philippine waters , at Turtle Island  ( Apo Island )   with hundreds of turtles .


And , they have been seen near  Tubattaha Reef, a UNESCO Heritage site, and one of the most protected site in the world.


Please, please , check out this video.  And please click the other video, too. If the Chinese  can go as far as  South  America…….. Truly unconscionable…. if they have their way, they will decimate all the elephants in the world,  for their tusks.. they take advantage of African people’s poverty.

I’m this close to being a nervous wreck…good thing I’m a geek .  Guess what, I can watch animes,  read mangas, and play video games…..   Happiness ! !  So, I go to Netflix,  choose an anime,  Japan Sinks 2020, and I’m like,  “Uhm…. Fine ! I like disaster and survival movies. “ The main characters are a family… the Mom  is a Filipina from the Philippines, Dad is Japanese and their 2 children. Spoiler  :   Japan does sink, and new map shows  Taiwan and the Philippines  are not in the map anymore.



That didn’t go well.


Okay, next in my relaxation  agenda——> Video games……….




I like a little bit of stealth in a game, but not all stealth ! !  Just a few minutes into the game and I’m already a nervous wreck …..  problem is, I don’t give up and I’m a completionist.



Oh, joy !  This is going to take a while…….


I do take a break from intense playing……


I read a manga…..  Shoujo….. Romance.  Woohoo !


So do you know where I got my Internet name  Ren x Kyoko  ?  From the manga  Skip Beat, which I’ve been reading since middle school.  Only one chapter comes out each month,  and currently,  it’s now 284 chapters. Do the math, ha ha ha ! It’s a slow burn romance ( and that’s an understatement ).  Ren gets to confess his love for Kyoko  at Chapter  279, just a few months ago.


I was like this in high school…………




my drawing2


Bahahahaha !


Chapter 149 above  is when Kyoko gets a peck on the cheek  from  Ren.      A peck on the cheek !  I almost fell off the chair when I saw that.  LOL !  Ah, sweet innocence.


Chapter 279,  Ren  kisses Kyoko’s hand after confessing.


I wonder at what chapter Ren x Kyoko kiss.


Lemme guess….. I’ll be sitting in my rocking chair, drinking hot cocoa, clacking my dentures,  watching over my grandkids……. and reading  Chapter 5000. That’s when they finally kiss.  * swoon *


Well, this is this and that is that.


Bye for now.
