VIOLENCE VS. KINDNESS

posted by Aya Empeo at 06:52 0 comments Links to this post

I hate violence. I super uber mega hate violence because it can make anything worse. I rather be emotionally and mentally abused rather than physically. I hate violence because it reminds me how my father beats us, it was too harsh and not right and thankfully he changed. I'm only a human who also has a traumatic experience so anyone who beats or did something violent on me, all the violent and bad things had happened in the past, flashbacks and that's when I start to breakdown. FYI, I'm the person who hates to cry. And I guess, this is one of the reason why I wanted to be a Psychiatric Nurse/Psychiatrist/Neurologist and I really wanted to be assigned in the ward where the serial killers and lots of violent people came from, I want to know them better and the reason why are they are liked that. But I need to work for myself, to be strong so that I won't breakdown if ever anything happens, I need self awareness!!

For me, the best thing to give for a person who made you bad is Kindness. Why? Like I said violence makes everything worse so why not end it with kindness so everyhting would stop. And I think that showing kindness is a sign of strength which violence is a sign of weakness, it needs a lot of courage to show kindness and that's why they do violent acts to cover their weakness and fears. Like the Lebanese-American poet, Kahlil Gibran said ""Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair but manifestations of strength and resolution." Forgive and be kind to others and I promise you you're life will be full of happiness and it will eventually make you more positive.

Anyway, a little rant that I need to release on my system.

OFF TOPIC: I need my google chrome back because IE sucks! haha

I'm now 21 and still on denial. Anyway, I thank God for everything; the blessings, the lessons, the trial, my life, my family, my friends and to my beloved love. This year He gave me lots of blessings. I graduated from Bachelor of Science in Nursing, passed the Nursing Licensure Exam and gave me someone who will love me for who I am. And now, I'll do my best to be a good person and a good medicine student and someday to be a good doctor.

NMAT and Pre Birthday Celebration

posted by Aya Empeo at 06:30 0 comments Links to this post
Just took the National Medicine Admission Test yesterday (December 12, 2010) at the De La Salle University. My testing room was assigned at the St. La Salle Building same with Nachee and Majo. Majo and I have the same testing room and guess what we we're sitting next to each other even though it was alphabetically arranged. And yeah, we are 3 RTR students in the same room, the other one is a lower batch and he still recognized us and at first I thought we were 4 RTR students and unfortunately the girl who's sitting behind me was not a RTR student and I was embarassed to ask her directly about our C.I. without asking if she's from our school haha but well, we got close to her. I think that we are 5 RTR students inside the Building, the other one was an alumni.

The first practical test was easy I mean I can still handle the exam but the pressure was too much. I was still at the half of Test D when the proctor announced that there are only 10 minutes left. I was doing my best to read and answer fast and luckily I've answered all the questions.

At lunch time, we stayed at Mcdo and ate our baons there while waiting for Nachee.

The second practical test was really hard and because it was really hard you can finish it ahead of time due to guessing haha. I hate Physics, I do not hate Chemistry but I can't remember all the things I've learned from High school and 1st and 2nd year college. I've finished the set ahead of time and didn't used the scratch paper given to me haha

After NMAT, I had a Last Day Celebration as a 20 year old lady at the Yellow cab with Majo, Nachee, Alex, Kym and Enski. Enski lives near Vito Cruz so I let her join in our mini celebration. I enjoyed this tiring day. Well, I super thank God for guiding me and giving me more time to celebrate. Thank you so much!

Well, to all NMAT takers. Good luck to us and I hope we will get the grades that we needed. God bless us all :D

December 5, 2010 -Manila Tour

posted by Aya Empeo at 08:49 0 comments Links to this post
Me, Majo and Riqi, planned to have a mini tour in the capital of Philippines which is Manila. We planned to ride a ferryboat from Guadalupe, Makati to Intramuros and unfortunately it's Sunday and there are no schedule rides for SUNDAY! So we rode a jeepney from Guadalupe to Taft (Herran) and then rode another jeep going to Rizal Park.

1st destination: Luneta Park or also known as Rizal Park.
Rizal Park is one of the historical place in Manila, this was the place were our national hero, Jose Rizal, was killed. It was formerly known as Bagumbayan. Things you can do are visiting Jose Rizal's Monument, have a picnic, walk around, ride a Calesa (Carriage) and also ride the sort of bus thing (I'm so sorry IDK what you call that) that goes around the park. You can also visit some parks there like the Chinese Park, Japanese Park and many more.

2nd Destination: Intramuros and Fort Santiago
Intramuros is located near Rizal Park, it's a few walks away unfortunately we rode a jeepney and cost 7pesos and had to walk from the City hall to the entrance of the Intramuros. Going to Fort Santiago is a long walk from the entrance of Intramuros (near Lyceum) and yes, we did walk.

A must see places in Intramuros are:
* Casa de Manila
* San Agustin Church
* Cathedral-Basilica of the Immaculate Conception or famously known as Manila Cathedral

A trivia about San Agustin. Did you know that the remains of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, Juan de Salcedo and Martin de Goiti and some Spanish Governor-General and Archibishops are buried near the tabernacle. And also the painter, Juan Luna and stateman Pedro Paterno, their bodies also lays in the Church.

Manila Cathedral is also a resting place former prelates who have served the Archdiocese of Manila (like the Vatican in Rome for Popes).

Fort Santiago, is a fortress within Intramuros. It is located near the Manila Cathedral. The time we came there were lots of Virgin Mary Images parked because there would be an event at 1600H at the Manila Cathedral. At the Fort proper, you will see the foot steps of Dr. Jose Rizal. You'll also see the replica of Rizal's prison. You should visit the Rizal Shrine where you can see the collections of photos and poems of the national hero. At the far part of Fort Santiago, you'll se the dungeons used by the Japanese conquerors to kill the Filipino soldiers and also a cross for the memoriam of the Filipinos killed.

3rd Destination: Binondo and Manila China Town
From Intramuros we rode a jeepney from Intramuros and rode another jeep going to Binondo. We were dropped in front of Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz. We visited the well known Binondo Church and stroll around Binondo to find a Chinese restaurant for lunch. And we decided to eat at Tasty Wok in the Manila China Town.


I had Sweet and Sour Fish and a dessert of Black Gulaman. And also don't forget to buy Hopia and Mooncakes at Eng Bee Tin, the color purple Hopia Store!

4th and last destination: Divisoria
Binondo is near Divisoria, just a few walks away. Divisoria is the place where you'll find cheap things. We went to 168 mall and the new mall, 999 mall. A little warning about your things, there a lots of snatchers, so be careful.

NOSTALGIA: Children of the 90's.

posted by Aya Empeo at 04:08 0 comments Links to this post
Due to a charity event on facebook against child abuse. Every person change their profile pictures to their favorite cartoon character when they were little. And because of this little event lots of facebook users reminisced their childhood. And of course almost of my friends are "The Children of the 90's".

When I was a kid I love watching Animes/Cartoons, nothing can beat those old sentais, the first ever Power Ranger, Sesame Street, old cartoons from Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. I miss my childhood and while reminiscing these things, and there I realized that I'm really getting old haha and connection to this 10 days to go I'll be turning 21!

Nothing beats the 90's! It's the best decade ever :D

And yeah, still listening to Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman's OP Theme song over and over again :D
