Transcript of Aquino family statement on Cory Aquino’s illness

Posted in daisy on April 4, 2008 by daisyjoy

Our mother had suffered from an episode of high blood pressure and difficulty in breathing followed by fever during the week in between Christmas and New Year. Since that time, we all became concerned because of her persistent cough, loss of appetite, and her noticeable weight loss. Our mom wanted to know what was wrong with her, and with her family by her side, she submitted herself to a check-up and several tests. The results show that our mother is suffering from cancer of the colon. Our mother has always believed in being upfront over and above everything else. She is a woman who has lived her entire life entrusting to the lord, and she has always been a woman of great faith. Ang pamilya po namin ay kagaya lamang ng sa inyo. Mahal na mahal po namin ang nanay namin at handa kaming magbigay ng suporta lakas, at pagkalinga sa oras ng kanyang matinding pagsubok. Alam din namin na ang aming pamilya ay bahagi na ng kasaysayan ng ating bayan. Desisyon po ng nanay namin na mag-release kami ng statement para maunawaan ng lahat ang kanyang kasalukuyang kalagayan. Nakikiusap po kami na sana ay maintindihan niyo na kailangan po ng aming ina, kagaya ng lahat ng pasyenteng nagpapagaling, ng panahon po ng katahimikan. It’s a very difficult time for our family, most especially our mother.


Dengue cases in Cagayan number more than 100

Posted in daisy on March 27, 2008 by daisyjoy

Provincial health authorities in Cagayan are alarmed as the number of dengue cases recorded has reached more than a hundred and already with one fatality from the deadly disease.

Compared to the number of cases in the first quarter last year which was 41, the number of cases this first quarter of 2008 is already 101.

Dr. Danilo Alonzo, Provincial Health Officer, said that even with the dry season, rain is still being experienced in the area – a condition which creates ponds that become the breeding ground for mosquitoes carrying dengue.

He said some residents are also affected by gastroenteritis, sore eyes or conjunctivitis and heat stroke – which affects both the elderly and the young.

Dr. Alonzo advised residents to strive to maintain their health and clean their surroundings to effectively prevent diseases.

NBA clubs to stage pre-season games in Europe

Posted in daisy on March 27, 2008 by daisyjoy
Four National Basketball Association teams will play pre-season games next October in Europe, with dates set in London, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona, the league announced Thursday.
The New Orleans Hornets, Washington Wizards, Miami Heat and New Jersey Nets will make the trip as part of NBA Europe Live, the third year in a row in which NBA clubs have played games across the Atlantic Ocean.
“Our third consecutive year of NBA Europe Live is another step in our ongoing effort to bring the excitement of the NBA to our growing fan base,” NBA commissioner David Stern said.
“The Heat, Nets, Hornets and Wizards will compete and extend our global commitment to community service in four European cities where basketball’s popularity is increasing.”
The matchups will mean NBA clubs have played 48 games in 18 European cities over the past 20 years, with seven European games last year drawing more than 75,000 spectators, more than 10 million television viewers and sponsor support.
The Heat will tip-off the NBA European tour October 9 at Bercy arena in Paris when the 2006 NBA champion Heat, featuring Dwyane Wade, play the Nets. The same teams will meet three days later at the O2 Arena in London.
The Hornets and Wizards will meet at Berlin’s O2 World arena on October 14 and meet again three days later in Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi.
NBA players will also participate in community programs in each European stop.
NBA teams played last year in London, Rome, Istanbul, Madrid and Malaga, Spain and in 2006 in Rome, Paris, Moscow, Barcelona, the French city of Lyon, and Cologne, Germany.

The Beaches of Palawan

Posted in daisy on March 19, 2008 by daisyjoy

1.gif2.gif3.gif    The exotic beauty of Palawan remains undefiled. Branded as the country's last frontier, Palawan is a sanctuary to an amazing variety of exotic flora and fauna that are found nowhere else. Palawan is also home to Tubbataha Reef, the only national marine park that made it to the World Heritage List and whose grandeur is comparable to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.     	       With more than a thousand islands and islets, Palawan boasts of white-sand beaches, scenic rock formations, underwater rivers and magnificent caves. Other well-known attractions include Saint Paul's National Park which boasts of caves that nestle an underground river; El Nido, a world-class resort famous for its awe-inspiring seascape and limestone cliffs; and Calauit island, home of Philippine and African wildlife.       	      Also in Palawan is the primordial island of Busuanga, a perfect starting point for sorties to other nearby islands.In Palawan, each day is promising. The sun rises over the South China Sea and soon everything else sparkles, including the smiles of its people.

The Old City

Posted in daisy on March 19, 2008 by daisyjoy

old.gif    Manila, which was named after a white-flowered mangrove plant called nilad, was a tiny Malay settlement along the Pasig River ruled by Rajah Sulayman in the 16th century. The Spanish colonizers moved the capital of the Philippines from Cebu to Manila in 1571. They built the walled city of Intramuros, which for the next 300 years, was to become the nerve center of the Spanish rule.      Intramuros was the political and commercial center of the Spanish regime. From this walled city, the Spaniards extended their cultural and religious influences to the different parts of the country. They built churches, Catholic-run schools and universities, government buildings, and magnificent artifices, which reflect the Castilian architecture.      At the turn of the century, the Americans came and ruled the Philippines for 50 years. They introduced their own architecture, language, education and system of governance. During this period, Manila underwent a facelift. A blend of American and Spanish influences gave way to a new Manila, which was to evolve into a giant urban area known as Metro Manila.
