Smooth away trouble; and the rough male kiss
Of blankets....

It's the police, ho ho ho

The theory makes sense, considering that red is the official color of Christmas and cows figure prominently in the Nativity Scene. The study - marked “confidential” and kept in a secret vault in Camp Crame - is titled, “The Cop As Santa Claus: An Idea So Funny That It Deserves A Try.”

A project of Tsinelas in cooperation with

the Dolores Aboitiz Children’s Fund 



The project is about bringing the spirit of Christmas to the sidewalks, “home” to the city’s street children and their families. It is a project born of the belief that Christmas is for everybody, the poor most especially.



The sidewalks in downtown Cebu City. the areas near Plaza Independencia, Cebu City Hall, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Manalili, Magallanes and Colon Sts., to name a few.



Street children and their families.






Tsinelas volunteers will drive along identified areas and randomly distribute packed meals to the people on the sidewalks. Distribution will be done in the early morning of December 25, preferrably between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. There is no activity yet going on in these otherwise busy business areas at these hours; so it is assured only street children and their families will be found there.


Distribution will be done as silently as possible. A tap on the shoulder should be enough to wake a street child and his family up, in case they are still asleep. This is to avoid attracting a crowd that will only make distribution difficult. After handing out the food and saying a short Christmas greeting, the team will leave the place and move on to the next.  


If necessary, there can be more than one team for the distribution so that it can be done as quickly and efficiently as possible. A team’s size should be kept to a minimum to avoid attracting attention. 



As principal sponsor of the project, the Dolores Aboitiz Children’s Fund will decide on what food to prepare and what catering agency to tap.



Tsinelas, Dolores Aboitiz Children’s Fund, and Friends.

The weather for dummies

We are also too dumb to realize that “rain” is water falling from the sky while “precipitation” is the same water falling from the sky. (OK, snow is precipitation, as hail or sleet is. But unless you’re sleeping with a real snowman, be happy with rain. It’s shorter.)   read article here

Gravity-producing toilet for Aussie astronauts 

What is 40 percent of the global population? I’m poor in math, but just imagine walking down the street in your neighborhood. Count 40 steps, stop, look to either side, there’s a 40 percent chance the house that stands there has no toilet. If it’s a vacant lot with lots of grass, that’s the toilet itself.

Missing Filemon's first Christmas single debuted at Smash FM this morning. Other stations said they will start playing the  song  next week. The song is an adaptation of  Let It Snow written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in 1945. We changed most of the stanzas but retained the refrain. In the spirit of sharing, we might be giving away copies of the song next week.


Pasko na usab O higala, walay sulod imong pitaka
Ayaw pangandoy sa wa diha, wa tay snow, wa tay, wa tay snow

Ayaw pangandoy og hamonada, lechon manok, queso de bola
Ayaw pangandoy sa wa diha, wa tay snow, wa tay snow, wa tay snow

When we finally kiss good night, how I'll hate going out in the storm
But if you'll really hold me tight, all the way home I'll be warm

Kung si Santa imong amigo, hain na ang imong regalo
Ayaw pangandoy sa di mao, wa tay snow, wa tay snow, wa tay snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Nitpicking and other lice we tell our children

This naturally alarmed the Department of Education, who promptly ordered schools to strictly enforce time-tested nitpicking policies. If you’re following me, nitpicking starts at the elementary level. And this activity is so addictive that it continues after the child finished elementary and marched on to become public officials.

Rogue Madonna

A true lover of music appreciates different genres. A poser is one who picks one genre to support and dismisses the musical merits of the others. Or to be closer to home, a fake is one who loves rock music but automatically shuts his ears to a song if it is written in Cebuano, no questions asked.

Ella ella eh eh eh

You can't imagine the extent of my suffering keeping my hips from swaying as I walk down the road. I am convinced there’s a cosmic connection between an umbrella and a man’s manner of walking. I tell you, it’s not a pleasant experience, especially when you pass by your barkada playing tong-its in the garage.

Coke Zero

In my break time I used to drink cola with full of sugars, the original one. But since I am studying nurse I tend to get more health conscious as days pass by. It might have something to do with our health lecture and one of them is to avoid the diabetical problem. Diabetis is one common problem in anywhere in the world. Glad I'm not prone to it as it is not in our genes to be diabetically prone. But its not because I am not prone to it I have to drink and take more sugars every meal or snacks I have. So after our health lecture I am aware about it and starting to cut down my sugar intake. I had change my drink diet from original coke to diet one and now that there is a Coke zero its even much better. I sure will love it. Coke zero is taste just as good. This is how life as it should be, dont you think?
