Excerpt from Lee Kuan Yew’s writings on his ASEAN contemporaries


A post from social networking site – Facebook touched me. It’s a good post so I blog it. I hope pinoys will open their heart and mind to accept the information below like what I did. Enjoy!

– “THE PHILIPPINES was a world apart from us, running a different style of politics and government under an American military umbrella. It was not until January 1974 that I visited President Marcos in Manila. When my Singapore Airlines plane flew into Philippine airspace, a small squadron of Philippine Air Force jet fighters escorted it to Manila Airport. There Marcos received me in great style – the Filipino way. I was put up at the guest wing of Malacañang Palace in lavishly furnished rooms, valuable objects of art bought in Europe strewn all over. Our hosts were gracious, extravagant in hospitality, flamboyant.”

– “His (Marcos’) foreign minister, Carlos P. Romulo, was a small man of about five feet some 20 years my senior, with a ready wit and a self-deprecating manner about his size and other limitations..He did not hide his great admiration for the Americans His good standing with ASEAN leaders and with Americans increased the prestige of the Marcos administration. Marcos had in Romulo a man of honor and integrity who helped give a gloss of respectability to his regime as it fell into disrepute in the 1980s.”

– “In Bali in 1976, at the first ASEAN summit held after the fall of Saigon, I found Marcos keen to push for greater economic cooperation in ASEAN. Marcos and I agreed to implement a bilateral Philippines-Singapore across-the-board 10 percent reduction of existing tariffs on all products and to promote intra-ASEAN trade. We also agreed to lay a Philippines-Singapore submarine cable. I was to discover that for him, the communiqué was the accomplishment itself; its implementation was secondary, an extra to be discussed at another conference.”

– “We met every two to three years. He once took me on a tour of his library at Malacañang, its shelves filled with bound volumes of newspapers reporting his activities over the years since he first stood for elections. There were encyclopedia-size volumes on the history and culture of the Philippines with his name as the author. His campaign medals as an anti-Japanese guerrilla leader were displayed in glass cupboards. Imelda, his wife, had a penchant for luxury and opulence. When they visited Singapore before the Bali summit they came in style in two DC8’s, his and hers.”

-“International outrage over the killing (of Ninoy Aquino) resulted in foreign banks stopping all loans to the Philippines, which owed over US$25 billion and could not pay the interest due. This brought Marcos to the crunch. He sent his minister for trade and industry, Bobby Ongpin, to ask me for a loan of US$300-500 million to meet the interest payments. I looked him straight in the eye and said, “We will never see that money back.”

– “I added, everyone knew Marcos was seriously ill and under constant medication for a wasting disease. What was needed was a strong, healthy leader, not more loans.”

– “Shortly afterward, in February 1984, Marcos met me in Brunei at the sultanate’s independence celebrations. He had undergone a dramatic physical change. He was breathing hard as he spoke, his voice was soft, eyes bleary, and hair thinning. He looked most unhealthy. An ambulance with all the necessary equipment and a team of Filipino doctors were on standby outside his guest bungalow. Marcos spent much of the time giving me a most improbable story of how Aquino had been shot.”

– As soon as all our aides left, I went straight to the point, that no bank was going to lend him any money. They wanted to know who was going to succeed him if anything were to happen to him; all the bankers could see that he no longer looked healthy. Singapore banks had lent US$8 billion of the US$25 billion owing. The hard fact was they were not likely to get repayment for some 20 years.

– “He countered that it would be only eight years. I said the bankers wanted to see a strong leader in the Philippines who could restore stability, and the Americans hoped the election in May would throw up someone who could be such a leader. I asked whom he would nominate for the election. He said Prime Minister Cesar Virata.”

-” I was blunt. Virata was a nonstarter, a first-class administrator but no political leader; further, his most politically astute colleague, defense minister Juan Ponce Enrile, was out of favour. Marcos was silent, then he admitted that succession was the nub of the problem. If he could find a successor, there would be a solution. As I left, he said, “You are a true friend.” I did not understand him. It was a strange meeting.”

– ” With medical care, Marcos dragged on. Cesar Virata met me in Singapore in January the following year. He was completely guileless, a political innocent. He said that Mrs. Imelda Marcos was likely to be nominated as the presidential candidate. I asked how that could be when there were other weighty candidates, including Juan Ponce Enrile and Blas Ople, the labor minister. ”

– “Virata replied it had to do with “flow of money; she would have more money than other candidates to pay for the votes needed for nomination by the party and to win the election. He added that if she were the candidate, the opposition would put up Mrs. Cory Aquino and work up the people’s feelings. He said the economy was going down with no political stability.”

– “Mrs. Aquino was sworn in as president amid jubilation. I had hopes that this honest, God-fearing woman would help regain confidence for the Philippines and get the country back on track. I visited her that June, three months after the event. She was a sincere, devout Catholic who wanted to do her best for her country by carrying out what she believed her husband would have done had he been alive, namely, restore democracy to the Philippines.”

– Endless attempted coups added to Mrs. Aquino’s problems. The army and the constabulary had been politicized. There were more coup attempts, discouraging investments badly needed to create jobs.

– “This was a pity because they had so many able people, educated in the Philippines and the United States. Their workers were English-speaking. There was no reason why the Philippines should not have been one of the more successful of the ASEAN countries.”

– “In the 1950s and 1960s, it was the most developed, because America had been generous in rehabilitating the country after the war. Something was missing, a gel to hold society together. The people at the top, the elite mestizos, had the same detached attitude to the native peasants as the mestizos in their haciendas in Latin America had toward their peons. ”

– “They were two different societies: Those at the top lived a life of extreme luxury and comfort while the peasants scraped a living, and in the Philippines it was a hard living. They had no land but worked on sugar and coconut plantations. They had many children because the church discouraged birth control. The result was increasing poverty.”

-” ..the culture of the Filipino people: It is a soft, forgiving culture. Only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over 20 years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics. They supported the winning presidential and congressional candidates with their considerable resources and reappeared in the political and social limelight after the 1998 election that returned President Joseph Estrada.”

– “General Fabian Ver, Marcos’s commander-in-chief who had been in charge of security when Aquino was assassinated, had fled the Philippines together with Marcos in 1986. When he died in Bangkok, the Estrada government gave the general military honors at his burial.”

– “One Filipino newspaper, Today, wrote on 22 November 1998, “Ver, Marcos and the rest of the official family plunged the country into two decades of lies, torture, and plunder. Over the next decade, Marcos’s cronies and immediate family would tiptoe back into the country, one by one – always to the public’s revulsion and disgust, though they showed that there was nothing that hidden money and thick hides could not withstand.”

– “Some Filipinos write and speak with passion. If they could get their elite to share their sentiments and act, what could they not have achieved?”

 

The last quote is very true. Now, I’ll leave you with one question, what’s lacking in the Philippines? For me it’s a good and trusted leader.

Letting Go of My Angel


Letting Go of My Angel.

Is God Real: Do you Believe in God?


I am touched once again from this conversation. I was like laughing and realizing – I don’t understand how to react. You have to read this and reflect as well.

Do you believe in God?
You Got Faith

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent.)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Is satan good ?

Student : No.

Professor: Where does satan come from ?

Student : From … GOD …

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

Student : Yes.

Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer.)

Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them ?

(Student had no answer.)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

Student : No , sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Is God Real?
Now, Is God Real?

Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student : No, sir. There isn’t.

(The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class was in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class broke out into laughter. )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

Faith
I just have FAITH

SEO Tutorial: A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners


Before anything else, let’s define SEO first. What is Search Engine Optimization or simply SEO? SEO is the application of endorsing a web site in order to boost the number of website’s visitors from search engines. Sometimes SEO is simply a matter of making sure your site is structured in a way that search engines understand. Search Engine Optimization isn’t just about “engines.” It’s about making your site better for people too.

SEO Tutorial: A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners

Most of the website visitors are driven from the major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo!. This is true whether your site provides content, services, products, information or just about anything else.

Search engines are unique in that they provided targeted traffic – people looking for what you offer. If your site cannot be found by search engines or your content cannot be put into their databases, you miss out on incredible opportunities available to websites provided via search.

Search queries, the words that users type into the search box, carry extraordinary value. Experience has shown that search engine traffic can make (or break) an organization’s success. Targeted visitors to a website can provide publicity, revenue, and exposure like no other channel of marketing. Investing in SEO, whether through time or finances, can have an exceptional rate of return compared to other types of marketing and promotion. (Source)

If you don’t have any background to SEO and you don’t know what to do first, have no worry, I will spoon feed you on how to do SEO.

  1. First thing first, go to google.com and search your website’s URL:

url search

Then, if you saw your website on top, that’s a good news because Google had crawled it. If it’s not in the search results, it means that Google don’t know yet that your website exists.

A Web crawler is a computer program that browses the World Wide Web in a methodical, automated manner or in an orderly fashion. Other terms for Web crawlers are ants, automatic indexers, bots,Web spiders,Web robots, or—especially in the FOAF community—Web scutters.

This process is called Web crawling or spidering. Many sites, in particular search engines, use spidering as a means of providing up-to-date data. Web crawlers are mainly used to create a copy of all the visited pages for later processing by a search engine that will index the downloaded pages to provide fast searches. Crawlers can also be used for automating maintenance tasks on a Web site, such as checking links or validating HTML code. Also, crawlers can be used to gather specific types of information from Web pages, such as harvesting e-mail addresses (usually for sending spam). (Source)

From there, you can easily make a plan or strategy on how to be on top of Google’s result.

To start with, let’s answer the following questions – How will Google know what your website is all about? How will you know that users/searchers had found you? What will you search to at least test that your SEO is working? The answer is Keyword. To find the best keyword to use, let’s do keyword research.

2.    Do keyword research. Usually, I consider the number of search volume and competition. There are a lot of tools that you can use in order for you to find the best keyword. One of which is the Google Keyword Tool [https://adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool].

3.    Use those keywords to optimize your website or blog. Choose one keyword to be your main keyword [I would suggest that you’ll choose your strongest keyword]. Make use of your strongest keyword in your url, Title and Description.

Website or blog title tags are shown in search results as follows:

title in search results

URLs are shown in search results as follows:

URL in search results

Descriptions are shown in search results as follows:

Description search results

Those parts of your blog should be optimized to get the desired results.

4.    Contents optimization. Make use of your keywords in the title of your article. Make sure that it is understandable by the users. Don’t write for Google, write for readers.

A good content is what Google is looking for. Make sure to write informative information for your users or visitors. NEVER SPAM!

5.    Ping your website so that Google will notice your changes. You can use PingFarm[pingfarm.com] to ping your site. Ping not just only your domain or main page, but all inner pages:

pinging website

As you can see, I am not only pinging my main url domain which is https://arialleeve.wordpress.com/ for I ping it’s inner page which is https://arialleeve.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/how-to-tell-if-a-website-is-a-scam/ as well.

Remember to always ping your pages once you have done changes. Wait until Google index your website and inner pages.

  1. 6.    Build links to gain page rank. Tell your friends to write something about you on their blog using your keyword.

The best place to build links is in social networking websites. Social networking sites such as facebook, twitter and G+. Share your ideas and tell your friends to share your posts. To successfully make things working, buy twitter followers, fans and plus1’s from reliable websites. Make sure that you are aware about scammers scattered in the web and is knowledgeable enough on how to tell if a website is a scam and read some reviews as well about the services you are planning to buy – BuyTwitterFollowers.org and QuickYouTubeViews.com. Good luck everyone.

How To Tell If A Website Is A Scam?


A lot of people are having a hard time in making decisions whether they will going to buy products online or not. What stopping us from purchasing online most of the time is because we are afraid if the site is real and not a scam. How to spot fraudulent Websites? I have here the list of ideas that you can used or considered before you purchase online to avoid scammers:

1. Check Website misspellings.

website misspelling

2. Check the date at the bottom (footer). If the site hasn’t been updated recently, there might be something wrong. Some websites are newly created and might have an updated date so, check it’s age by using any tool. Mine, I use seoquake.

copyright date

3. If you’re researching, check to see if the site is sponsored by any reputable sources such as an academic journal or a respected organization.

sponsored

4. Always check the domain. “.org” and “.net” are the most reliable.

domain extensions

5. Overwhelming advertisments are a clear sign.

sponsors

6. The site asks for unnecessary personal information.

site asks for unnecessary personal information

7. If a website asks you to login using your personal credentials, make sure you check the domain first. For example, if you are logging into Gmail, always make sure the domain name for the page you are on is the correct gmail.com.

Google Accounts

More likely, scammers are putting there website live and just earn thousands of money without sweating. Most of my friends are concern about buying twitter followers online. A lot of websites are selling twitter followers and they are afraid that they will end up buying to scammers. If you want to buy twitter followers, consider reading articles and reviews before you send money to a website such as BuyTwitterFollowers.org and BuyTwitterFollowersReview.org.

Here are Some Features of Scam or Fraud Website:

  •     No Contact Information or uses Only Contact Form. Refuses to give you a physical address or Gives Wrong Contact Information including Wrong Phone Number.
  •     Makes an offer that sounds too good to be true. For eg: Promises that you can win money, make money, orGet Rich Quickly.
  •     Asks for money to enter a contest, win a sweepstakes or lottery, or claim a prize and Refuses to send you written information before you agree to buy or donate.
  •     Refuses to give you the details of the offer before you make any payment.
  •     Requests your bank account or credit card number when you are not making a purchase with that account.
  •     Uses scare tactics or pressure, so that you act immediately.
  •     Private listing at Whois, or the listing names are associated with other scams. Go to www.whois.net and look up the Website domain name.

FAQ: Fixing Teeth Gaps the Orthofill Way


madonna

New topic here! While browsing into the web looking for a nice topic to share, I came across to an image (Madonna). Yes! It’s Madonna’s image. She’s a very famous singer in Hollywood. She got her fame together with the gap in between her teeth. In relation to that, I came across to a website named – Orthofill. They are selling bands online which are designed to close teeth gap.

Q: What is Orthofill?

A: Orthofill bands are the ultimate alternative for closing a tooth gap without the need of Orthodontic braces. Orthofill have been specifically manufactured in dental laboratories by Orthodontic professionals to provide an adaptive solution targeted only for minor gapped teeth. They are the small elastic bands that many dentists and orthodontics use with braces. But instead of threading them through the braces, you only need to roll a band over the gapped teeth. Orthofill bands mimic orthodontic braces and are made with a special premium grade elastic polymer that provides a calculated and gradual pressure on teeth to ensure safe and permanent gap closure. The technology behind Orthofill is innovative, appropriate use of Orthofill bands can close teeth gaps permanently without any side effects.

Q: Why Orthofill?

A: Orthodontist uses braces and bands to close the tooth gap — process that can take up to 3 years and cost thousands of dollars. Orthofill gives you teeth bands you can use yourself every night, which closes a tooth gap in a matter of three months. It is easy, safe and very affordable compared to braces.

Q: Is Orthofill applicable for any sizes of teeth gap?

A: Orthofill bands are not recommended for teeth gap more than 3.5mm wide. To measure the gap, you can ask for assistance to measure your gap with a small ruler or measuring tape.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Q: How wide is 3.5mm?

A: 3.5mm can be compared to the thickness of two pennies put together or less than that.

Q: Is there an age requirement to use Orthofill?

A: The use of Orthofill is not recommended for people under 16 years old because the teeth structure is still in development. For people who are too young, chances are that your gap will close by itself when new adult teeth are fully formed. This is not also recommended for people with delicate or crooked teeth. For both cases, we suggest dentist consultation first to avoid side effects and undesirable results.

Q: Is Orthofill expensive? If so, how much?

A: Orthofill are the cheapest and the first alternative to braces. Learn about its pricing here – http://www.orthofill.com/packages.html.

Q: Will it still be applicable for multiple gaps?

A: Orthofill bands fix and close even multiple gaps as long as they are not more than 3.5mm. If you have more than one gap we suggest you to focus on one at a time.  The process is the same and thousands of our customers have successfully closed their gap this way.

Q: Does Orthofill create new gap in the side after fixing the gap between front teeth?

A: If your teeth gap is less than 3.5mm, it won’t create new gaps. The motion of teeth is not linear – thus as your teeth come together, a pressure will be created on your gums which will cause your teeth arch to contract so no new gap should appear. If you start to notice a new gap forming, use Orthofill bands on that gap to close it, this will fix the problem.

Q: Sounds interesting! Where Orthofill can be purchased?

A: Orthofill bands can only be bought online, through http://www.orthofill.com/. Pricing here – http://www.orthofill.com/packages.html. The bands are shipped worldwide using Canada Postal Service.

Side Note: Thank you very much Christine Codin for your time and answers.

    • You can’t keep your eyes or hands off of her, am I right?
      -It isn’t love, it’s LUST.

Why is it all we search for in life? This pain, this agony?

Why is it all we long for? This torture, this powerful death of self? Why?
The answer is so simple because it’s…LOVE.

It is such addictive things that even people who are not having it wish to experience it and share it with others as well.

“The greatest weakness of humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they are still alive”

Photoshop Tool: Slice Tool


Slice tool is used to divide an image into sections. This is very useful when you have a design layout for your website and want to slice them to get the same image output as that of the image. There are actually two tools under it: Slice which has the capabilities to divide / slice an image. The other one is Slice Select (from the name itself) which lets you select and modify a sliced section.

I gathered these videos from youtube that will help you understand slicing more:

Slice Tool – Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop Tips – Slice Tool

Aside from those videos above, here is another useful information from Adobe Help Page:

Slices are categorized by their content type (Table, Image, No Image) and by the way they are created (user, layer-based, auto).
Slices created with the Slice tool are called user slices; slices created from a layer are called layer-based slices. When you create a new user slice or layer-based slice, additional auto slices are generated to account for the remaining areas of the image. In other words, auto slices fill the space in the image that is not defined by user slices or layer-based slices. Auto slices are regenerated every time you add or edit user slices or layer‑based slices. You can convert auto slices to user slices.
User slices, layer-based slices, and auto slices look different—user slices and layer-based slices are defined by a solid line, whereas auto slices are defined by a dotted line. In addition, user slices and layer-based slices display a distinct icon. You can choose to show or hide auto slices, which can make your work with user-slices and layer-based slices easier to view.
A subslice is a type of auto slice that is generated when you create overlapping slices. Subslices indicate how the image is divided when you save the optimized file. Although subslices are numbered and display a slice symbol, you cannot select or edit them separately from the underlying slice. Subslices are regenerated every time you arrange the stacking order of slices.

Just a quick post of mine


I have made something for Arialleeve –

I am learning Photoshop now! I find it cute.. ❤
