My Thoughts on VN/DC/CL Issue

It's been trending over the internet for almost a week now. And it's kinda annoying that almost everyday I've been seeing in my feeds, hearing on the news, watching on TV programs about this Vhong-Deniece-Cedric issues.
Only thing I can say is that when you lie, you must be that consistent even up to very small details so that people you're telling stories to won't notice that you're lying.. 
I am not a big fan of Vhong. But in this incident, I found his words more credible than that of the girl claiming she's been raped.
Both parties are at fault. First and foremost, Vhong could have said no to the initial invitation of the girl. Having the fact that he's already committed and all. Same goes to Deniece. She's definitely in a relationship with this guy Cedric. All I can see is just a retaliation, a revenge on Cedric's part. 
When the CCTV footage came out yesterday, the netizens reacted as expected. More haters for Deniece and still more haters…

Nitchie's Vietnamese Noodle House

I am one big fan of Vietnamese Noodles!   I particularly love Beef Stew Noodles. But recently I am liking Buto-buto With Beef Stew Noodles. 
Last weekend, my bestfriend and I went to this not-so-famous noodle house located at the corner streets of Burgos and Manalo. Just a few steps away from Pilot Elementary School.

Here's what Nitchie's Vietnamese Noodle House is offering the public. My personal pick all the time is their special soup (buto-buto with Beef stew soup and noodles).






This time around we ordered Buto-buto with noodles and Beef-Stew soup. This the best in town!! So full of flavor and so delicious! You can tell that the meat is cooked to perfection, plus the soup is really delicious and surely is not cooked with artificial flavorings. 

My best-friend Denmay ordered Spring Rolls. Which is also a must-try when you visit the place.
And of course, the noodle soup menu isn't complete without the so called French Breads! Pictured below is the version of Garlic Bread. Accordi…

I am an Old Songs Fanatic

Who doesn't love listening to old songs, all those acoustic music done using acoustic guitar at guitar center.
Ever since I was young, I am a lover of music. Almost all genres. But I can't resist the charm of listening to old music.

Music from the late 70s to early 80s are such a good music to listen to! They give me the instant nostalgic feeling. Bringing me back to my younger years.

My Thoughts on Medical Marijuana

It's been in the news these passed few days. Someone in the congress wants to author a bill about regulating medical marijuana. I think its about time that we consider regulating this stuff. When I say regulated, I mean STRICT regulating. So that no one can abuse it's use.
Let us learn all things from everybody
A lot of parents with kids having cancer and some kind of sickness, wherein marijuana helps their children, it's such a huge relief is medical marijuana be legalized in our country.


Allegedly here are the benefits of marijuana: anecdotal evidence for the beneficial effects of marijuana eventually led to the design of controlled scientific studies to examine the benefits of marijuana compared to other treatments. A 1997 review of 6059 marijuana-related articles in the medical literature revealed 194 titles on antiemetic properties, 56 on glaucoma, 10 on multiple sclerosis, 23 on appetite, and 11 on palliative or terminal care. Numerous studies have been performed sin…

Gifts for Grandparents: Priceless Treasures From Your Kids

Grandparents are typically thrilled to receive gifts made by their grandchildren. When those gifts focus on special memories that the two generations have shared, they're even more cherished.
Sometimes you may struggle to think of what kind of present would be most appreciated. However, putting in the time to help your kids make gifts of special memories is an important way of passing on love from one generation to the next.

Consider these ideas for inspiration:
1. Take pictures whenever your kids are with grandparents. Even though you may feel like you're overdoing it, today's digital cameras make it easy to take hundreds of pictures for special memory projects.
* With photo software like Photoshop Elements, you can place elements of any two or more photographs together. Use such software plus your creativity to help your child design and produce a special gift of memories for Grandma or Grandpa.
2. Designate special drawers or storage boxes for keepsakes. Save small mem…
