Anti Selfie Bill.

I think the Anti-Selfie Bill that the government is trying to pass is stupid. Why waste more time on things that don’t really matter?

They can’t even fix the traffic issues, the pork barrel scam, the corruption, the education problems, that parking building hullabaloo and many other more pressing issues.

And more time is wasted on stopping “selfies”?

Keep in mind, if they pass this, what happens if you take a video of lets say, hypothetically, a police officer trying to extort you? Will the officer now be able to sue you for taking his video/photo without his explicit permission?

Honestly, it seems like they’re trying to hide something, or avoid getting caught on camera doing things they aren’t supposed to be doing.

This is the day I lost a dear friend that I have never even met.

I woke up, checked my phone and my timeline was filled with the news that Robin Williams had passed. As I read the articles, my eyes started to well up, and tears soon followed.

This news, broke my heart. I never even met him, but my childhood was filled with characters he had played, and many of those characters are precious to my heart. From the Genie, Patch Adams, Alan Parrish, John Keating, Mrs Doubtfire, Andrew Martin, and Peter Pan. Robin Williams played characters that I connected with, that I grew to love. And it felt like he was a crazy fun uncle that I could visit anytime, by simply turning on the TV.

The one role I truly felt a connection with, was Peter Pan. He gave up never growing old, for real life. And in making that decision, he got so focused on life, that he forgot what was really important, which was family, friends, and that you have to remember that in life, you also have to have fun. Otherwise, what’s the point of being alive? Are you existing? Or are you living?

He made so many people happy, he brought joy and touched so many lives. But he was melancholy. He played so many roles that would have lines about passion for life, about how living would be a great adventure. For him to go out this way, is tragic.

Only it’s a moot point, what’s done is done. I will mourn the departure of a man who made me laugh, made me cry, and made me look at life differently.

Thank you for all the wonderful times Mister Williams. Thank you for all the laughs. I thank God that you were brought into the world, and I pray that you are with Him now. Your light may no longer shine on this earth, but your memory will live on for much, much longer, in my heart, and in the heart of many, many others.

Cooking is Love.

Arianna and I went over to my brothers to have dinner and hang out, and while we were waiting for our food he was watching MasterChef US season 5.

Now I find myself intrigued by the show because the contestants are all amateur cooks, from stay at home dads, lawyers, restaurant servers, to students. And they all share one thing, which is a love for cooking. And I find cooking to be so much fun, mixing different ingredients together in various ways, and coming up with delicious meals for those you love.

So I started watching from season one, and I realized that I want to learn the basics of cooking, because I love cooking for friends and family. For me cooking is an expression of love, and if I can cook a really good meal for them, that would make me happy.

So I asked on social media about where I can learn these basic cooking skills, and one that was recommended was Heny Sison, and after inquiring about their basic cooking essentials class, I was informed that their course costs 122K, which is way out of my budget, especially since we are saving for and planning our wedding. I still intend to check out other possibilities, but if worse comes to worst, YouTube and torrents will be my friend and teacher.

Hopefully I find an affordable and good place where I can learn things such as slicing, dicing, mincing etcetc, because I really want to expand my knowledge when it comes to the kitchen.
