“Goodbye, Facebook.”

99 Days of Freedom from Facebook, Facebook Experiment

Today, July 10, 2014 at exactly 6am, I joined the  Dutch ad agency named Just in their road to ‘Freedom‘.  This a campaign in response to the controversial Facebook Experiment, which I also condemn. Up until now I cannot decipher why Facebook has done such research. The study was ‘poorly communicated‘ and I felt betrayed, devastated and sad.


“A nurse is trained to save lives.”

Along with 30 participants from Western Visayas, I attended the Basic Life Support (BLS), Basic Cardiac Rhythm Recognition or Basic ECG Recognition, and Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) training for healthcare professionals. It was conducted by Institute for Nursing Enrichment Training Center or INET Center at West Visayas State University.

The 2-day training was done by two instructors who were from Mindanao. They were Miss Mel and Sir Christopher. Both instructors were effective enough to share their knowledge and skills in BLS, ECG Recognition, and ACLS. (more…)

“Thank you, World.”

Dear People of the World,

It’s been three months after the super typhoon Haiyan struck. But we will never forget how you have helped us. You generously lend your hands so we can rebuild our lives. You have sailed a thousand miles to help us bring smiles to our face again. You have crossed the boarders to hug us with hope and prayers. You have took even the social networking sites to ameliorate our sufferings. And most importantly you have risk your lives to ameliorate our lives after the monstrous storm.

Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts for the things you have done and is doing to help us after the super typhoon – ‘from sending relief goods, doing medical missions, all the way to pledging funds for the reconstruction of infrastructure‘. We, the Philippine people, have made a number of posters to say our ‘thank you’.

#PHThankYou Thank You World

And together with our Department of Tourism, the 97.704 million Filipinos have launched a one-minute ‘Thank You, World‘ video on YouTube.

I am nearing the end of this ‘not-so open letter to you’, my dear world. I know you maybe annoyed of how many thank you’s I have written here. But I wouldn’t say sorry because saying those words meant a billion bucks. (Smiles).

So to really end this, I have edited our photo which was taken last year at Gigantes Group Of Islands ( one of the areas hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan) to show my thank you to the kindness and love you have shown us.


I hope you liked it!


From Philippines With Love,

Nurse Wanderer and the 97.7 Million Filipinos

“A hero has left a thousand words as a weapon towards victory.”

José Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda,

José Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda, was a writer and the Philippines’ national hero. He was most admired because of his books entitled Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. And today December 30 Filipinos are commemorating what he had done to free his country from its chain. As such I’m sharing some of his words of wisdom.


“Maligayang Pasko from the Philippines!”

I would always find Filipino Christmas worth going home for. Why? Simply because I could taste the Filipino-style spaghetti, and pancit palabok.

“Philippines made a major impact in beauty pageants through beauty and brains.”

In every beauty pageant we test the ‘beauty’ of a contestant’s brain through  the Question and Answer. We would applaud the candidate with the best answer and at some point, we’d be quiet to those who gave a sloppy answer. We also cheer for those who answered with a lot of ‘Uhm‘, ‘Ahh’, other kind of pause and translator drama.  So I’m sharing some of the answers uttered by Philippines’ candidates in five major beauty pageant this 2013.


“Believe and #GiveBackPhilippines.”

Justin Bieber turned down my invitation to attend my birthday party in Boracay today. Instead he went to Tacloban, one of the cities heavily devastated by Typhoon Haiyan last November 8, 2013, to mingle  to the Typhoon survivors and sings Christmas songs to them.


“We lost someone in this physical world, but his wisdom remains within us.”

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the former president of South Africa, father of Modern Africa, and anti-apartheid icon, has uttered so many words that inspired most of us.  I’m sharing five of his famous quotes. They are those who inspired me to live what God has destined me to do.


“Take an #Unselfie. Make A Difference.Volunteer. “

I know #Selfie was the word for 2013.  And I admit I was fond of doing a number of them a couple of years ago. But things have changed and I have known better. So I wouldn’t make one here. Instead I’m making a response to United Nations’ global movement. I’m posting my  own #unselfie photo.



“Rest in Peace Paul Walker. You will always remembered.”

I was at Estancia, Iloilo, Philippines (a town greatly affected by the super-typhoon Haiyan) helping my friend’s family in giving relief goods at Brgy. Bulaqueña when I learned the shocking news on my Twitter timeline. I was so upset that I even cried and promised that I’ll make a blog post for this man, whom I fell in love 6 years ago, and who was in full support for the relief efforts in the Philippines. So in lieu with the shocking and upsetting news about Paul Walker’s passing, I’m sharing why I fell in love with him through the movies he’s in. (more…)
