What Were You Thinking?

Once upon a time there lived a king. The king had a beautiful daughter, the PRINCESS. But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.

No matter what; metal, wood, stone, Anything she touched would melt. Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her. The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter?

He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, "If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured."

The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king's wealth.


The first brought a sword of the finest steel. But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted, and t he prince went away sadly.

The second prince brought diamonds. He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted. He too was sent away disappointed.

The third prince approached. He told the princess, "Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there."

The princess did as she was told, though she turned red. She felt something hard. She held it in her hand. And it did not melt!!!

The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed. And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Question: What was in the prince's pants?

(Scroll down for the answer)



M&M's of course. They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.

What were you thinking??

What Men and Women Needs To Know About Each Other

Photo by Roy Kim

It was often said that Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars. Makes me think if both sexes are from other planets then which ones are from Earth originally? (Hah! Just my two cents!)

I know it’s just their analogy in some famous book but well its true men and women don’t think alike they just compromise to bridge that huge difference.

Anyway, here’s some funny but with a pinch of truth stories and anecdotes that we already know about our species.Its fun to read them and realize the truthfulness in them (I included both sexes to be fair!)

What Men Needs To Know

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the question, "What kind of a man are you looking for?" She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking.

"Do you really want to know?" Reluctantly, he said, "Yes." She began to expound...

"As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for me that I can't do for myself. I pay my own bills."

"I take care of my household without the help of any man...or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table?"

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.

She quickly corrected his thought and stated, "I am not referring to money. I need something more."

"I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life."

He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked her to explain.

She said, "I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection spiritually because I don't need to be unequally yoked...believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster."

"I need a man who is striving for perfection financially because I don't need a financial burden. I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded."

"I am looking for someone who I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I have no problem being submissive...he just has to be worthy. God made woman to be a helpmate for man. I can't help a man if he can't help himself." When she finished her spill, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "You're asking a lot." She replied, "I'm worth a lot."


What Women Needs To Know

We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.

These are our rules:

Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

Breasts are for looking at and that is why we do it. Don't try to change that

Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

Saturday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be

Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

Crying is blackmail.

Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one:

Subtle hints do not work!

Strong hints do not work!

Obvious hints do not work!


‘Yes’ and ‘No’ are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question

Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for

A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor

Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days

If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us

If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done

Not both

If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself

ALL men see in only 16 colours, like Windows default settings.

Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a colour. Pumpkin is also a fruit.

We have no idea what mauve is.

If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle

If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear

When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine, Really

Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as:


Sport, or


You have enough clothes

You have too many shoes

I am in shape. Round is a shape.

Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight, but did you know men really don't mind that, it's like camping.

Share this to as many men as you can - to give them a laugh.

Share this to as many women as you can - to give them an education

The difference between 'United' and ‘Untied’ is where you put the i.

Love and Butterfly

Photo by Cemedia

"What's the feeling of being inlove?" a child asked her mother.

"It's like going to a theme park and riding all the rides that you want!" the mom explained enthusiastically to her child.

The kid seemingly discouraged to her mom's explanation. "So it will make you dizzy and vomit?"

"No, no," the mom hesitantly answered with smile on her face seemingly to notice that her child was a bit confused. "It's like going to a candy store and having to eat all the sweets that you want!"

"So it will make your tooth hurt?" the child still confused.

"No, ok it's like running so fast with nothing boggling your mind," the mom having trouble describing love in a language the kid would understand.

"So it will bruise you, and leave a scar once you trip and fall?" the child remarked.

"Look at that kid, that child knows better," remarked her uncle who just passed by and overheard their conversation. "Isn't it funny that a child knows what adults usually ignore?" he exclaimed.

Well, at some point when we experienced love and heartbreak we do experience those things the kid said but well that is the balance of life I suppose. Glory is much sweeter to taste after overcoming all trials. Life is a constant struggle, imagine how life would be without having to experience a bit of hardship right? Just like this butterfly story :

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

Set Your Priorities Straight

When I said list your priorities, I do mean PRIORITIES and not just things you want to do. If that confuses you let me give you a clear example.

I could put in my list date David Cook but that's like shooting for the stars but if I revise it I can just say go watch David Cook’s concert or buy his first album then that's doable. But of course David Cook is not on my priorities, dating him, watching his concert or buying his album wouldn’t improve the quality of my life, so why should I include him in my list at all.

When I said list of priorities in it means a list that will improve the quality of your life and not just some list of things you want to do short term or long term.
I have those kind of list too, my short term and long term goals. I also have list of things I wish I can do or dare to do someday if I have the liberty to do it with my extra time and money. But as it is it’s something extra and not necessary.

If you trim down that list and break them down to categories like personal, family, relationships, materials, work, and then break them more into what is most important to you that will improve the quality of your life and will make you happy, believe me the list will shrink and you will be surprised to have no less than 10 priorities set.

Let’s all be realistic in setting goals, don’t just write things you know you have no means of achieving or not sincere to have or doing it for the heck of it. Never ever lead yourself on. It will lead to disappointment to the point of surrendering to what happens happens and not because you pilot your way to where you want. Like I said you have the choice. You have the power to set your priorities straight.

List Your Priorities

If you only had three months to live, what will you do? Where will you go? With whom will you spend your last days here on earth?

I suggest before you go with any further reading, list them down first and then come back.

What came out of your list?

I’m positive that those that made your list are the most important of all.

When something is extremely important to us, it is on our top of priorities, it’s the first thing that comes to our mind, it’s something we are over eager and excited to do and accomplish right away. If they are not that important to you, you put them to the bottom part of your list as they can be accomplished later when you have extra time or money. But what if you never had that extra time and money?

Examine your list. If you have to re-write them according to your priorities do it. Your list will give you away. It will tell you what you what you value the most that deserves your attention and has utmost importance in your life.

Creating a list will also help you set your priorities straight. This list can help you out on the things that are most important to you, so you can compare them and find out how you actually spend your time and money.

If you find yourself lost and constantly wishing to have more time for the things and people you love, then it’s probably time to shake up your priorities, you haven’t defined what is valuable to you, now is the time to do so.

Evaluate the way you handle conflicting demands in your work, relationship, family and home. Do you set the other one aside for the other?

Do you rail against something? Examine the reason behind your anger. This is more than often a sign that some needs aren’t being met. Pay attention to these resentments and re-establish balance in your life.

Stick to your earlier commitments and say no to additional obligation. Sure, it feels great to be wanted and in demand, but be wise, have you considered what it will cost you to take on yet another thing you don't have time and money for.

Prioritize your spending. Write down what you'd like to have, like a shopping list, and be brutally honest about how much having it will improve your quality of life. When I say brutal I mean really brutal. Assess what is the real cost for you to get it - bearing in mind upfront costs, maintenance and potential debt, if it will cost any. When you prioritize your spending on what you really need (like a reliable car), it makes it less painful to do without things you merely want (like another pair of shoes).

Defining Moments

Life is a series of choices, a continuing process leading us to a path in our lives. Is it a yes or a no? Should you stay, leave or wait?

There’s a line I came across couple years ago: " Don't let go too soon, don't hang on too long,” a one-liner that makes sense but is confusing at the same time. Who gets to say/define/tell us that you have let go too soon? How can one assess that one had and is holding on too long?

The power to choose is up to us. With so many choices and considerations to think about in the end we are only allowed to pick one. Once we settled to a decision we go back again to the very beginning of the process because more choices will be laid to us and we do this day by day by day by day. It’s an endless loop.
Whether the decision is right or wrong, who knows? Who can tell? An action creates a reaction, a cause to an effect. Good or bad it really depends on the perspective of the person.

But making the choice relies on a defining moment, one moment that our logic will not be able to explain that we choose to do something rash. Is it intuition/gut feel or that moment is already defined even before it happens. It's a no brainer. It’s our destiny and nobody can stop us from getting there.

When Things Get Frustrating

The feeling of wanting and not having is more intense than wanting and having. Such feelings of wanting so much and not having often than not makes us frustrated especially when the personal goal you desire most is so important to you, the greater the frustration becomes. Frustration is an emotion comparable to anger. Maybe anger at themselves, to the things that surround them, to the society, behavior of other people around, just about anything.

Don't you just want to explode and disappear on the face of the earth when you have had just about all you can take, more especially when you can't do anything or you want to do something but you are always blocked of the things that you want to do by external or internal sources. “When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it," so does a famous line said. But how could you when there are other factors that prevent you from doing?

Don't you just hate it when you want something so bad and you do anything to get everything turns out exactly opposite? Some said learn to love what you have but well I would rather do anything that I could to get what I want than to be forced to like what I get.

Then when you get frustrated you hate the world and everyone around you so you just snap at them even if they didn't do anything bad. You just snap. Like I do more often than not and I know it affects everyone around me, I wonder if they call me grumpy, snobbish, full of myself bitch.

But at the end of the day whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude. Always try to keep it positive.

Values Learned At Home

The basic things we know in life, we learned at pre-school. I know most of you have heard of this famous cliché, but do you agree? To those of us living with children whether they are our own or not, here’s something to make you chuckle.

My older sister would always jokingly comment that it’s great that I have my own kid already that she can borrow anytime she wants and return it to me when she can’t handle my daughter no more. At least she can have a dry run about being a parent but without the commitment since it’s not her own.

What do you think? Does she have a point? Yes and no.
Yes, if you are not ready to raise a child of your own, because like she usually said she is not ready and she don’t know herself that well to be able to raise a child and also she can not be as patient as me when it comes to a mischievous child like the one I have.

No, because the fulfillment of raising a person to be better than you is the most rewarding thing a person could ever have in his or her lifetime. Also, it’s true that no matter how tired you are in a days work, coming home to your child with a sincere hug and kiss and sweet smiles takes away all stress.

I got this e-mail written in Tag-lish (Tagalog and English mixed), I will try to translate to the best of my powers so everyone can understand and not just my Filipino blogging friends.


"If you two want to fight, do it outside, I just cleaned the house!"

2. I learned what RELIGION is through my dad.
"If you didn't get that stain out of the carpet, better start saying your prayers now or your mom will kill you!"

3. Mom thought me LOGIC.
"It is so because I said so!"

4. I've learned more LOGIC from my mom.
"You be careful there at the roof if you fall I'd be alone watching the movie!"

5. Mom also thought me what IRONY means.
"If you don't stop whining I'll give you more reason to whine!"

6. Mom explained what CONTORTIONISM is.
"Look at the mess you did with your neck, look at it!"

7. Dad was the one who explained what STAMINA means.
"Don't you leave the table until you finish all your food?"

8. It was mom who thought us what WEATHER is.
"You kids are giving me a headache! Look at how messy your rooms are it’s like a hurricane just passed by in here!"

9. And this is how my mom thought me about the CIRCLE OF LIFE:
"You ungrateful kid, I was the one who gave you life I could have taken your life!"

"Don't you give me the shit like your mom does?"

11. And mom was the one who though us what is GENETICS.
"You are just like your ungrateful dad!"

12. Mom explained what ENVY is.
"There are kids who were abandoned by their parents you know. YOu should be thankful that you got parents like us."

13. It was dad who thought what ANTICIPATION is.
"You really did it; just you wait till we get home!"

14. Dad also thought us what RECEIVING is.
"I'll rag you when we get home!"

15. It was mom who though us HUMOR.
"If you cut your fingers with that axe your playing with don't you ever run to me for help or you'll be sorry you did!

16. And the most important of all I learned from my parents what is JUSTICE.
"One day you will have your own kids and I bet they will all be like you and give you the worst headache!"


1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.

6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.


Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day.

The Torch has been Passed ... Happy Mothers Day!

To understand how to be a parent you must raise children yourself, a Chinese proverb once quipped. Usually we rebel about our overly concerned parents bugging us all the time about our whereabouts when we are on the height of having fun.

We hate them when they nag us when we become underachievers and become less of that what they hope us to be. All because they knew our potential and that we can do so much better. Their interruptions and judgmental opinions about what we wanted to do on our own just gets to our nerves and sometimes we wish they just shut up and give us a free hand.

I got this beautiful e-mail from a friend and I want to share it with you again... its something that explains why we are worry warts sometimes, especially our mothers...

"Is there a magic cut-off period when offspring ebcome accountable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment when parents can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, "It's their life," and feel nothing?
When I was in my twenties, I stood in the hospital corridor waiting for doctors to put a few stiches in my son's head. I asked, "When do you stop worrying?" The nurse said, "When they get out of the accident stage." My mother just smiled faintly and said nothing.

When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a classroom and heard how one of my children talked incessantly, disrupted the class, and was headed for a career making license plates. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, "Don't worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them." My mother just smiled faintly and said nothing.

When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, "Their trying to find themselves. Don't worry in a few years, you can stop worrying. They'll be adults." My mother just smiled faintly and said nothing.

By the time I was 50, I was sick and tired of being vulnerable. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new wrinkle. There was nothing I can do about it. My mother just smiled faintly and said nothing.

I continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments. My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop worrying and lead my own life. I wanted to believe that, but I was haunted by my mother's warm smile and her occasional, "You look pale. Are you alright? Call me the minute you get home. Are you depressed about something?"
Can it be that parents are sentenced to a lifetime worry?

Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown?

Is concern a curse or is it a virtue that elevates us to the highest form of life.
One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying to me, "Where were you? I've been calling for three days, and no one answered I was worried."
I smiled a warm smile.

The torch has been passed!"

Children Can Teach Us Great Things

"It was a sports stadium. Eight Children were standing on the track to participate in the running

* Ready! * Steady! * Bang !!!

With the sound of Toy pistol, all eight girls started running. Hardly have they covered ten to fifteen steps, one of the smaller girls slipped and fell down, due to bruises and pain she started crying.

When other seven girls heard this sound, they stopped running, stood for a while and turned back; they all ran back to the place where the girl fell down.

One among them bent, picked and kissed the girl gently and enquired. 'Now pain must have reduced'. All seven girls lifted the fallen girl, pacified her, two of them held the girl firmly and they joined hands and walked together and reached the winning post.

Officials were shocked. Clapping of thousands of spectators filled the stadium. Many eyes were filled with tears. The applause and elation was so loud that perhaps it had reached the heavens!

This happened in Hyderabad, recently. The sport was conducted by National Institute of Mental Health.

All these special girls had come to participate in this event and they are spastic children. Yes, they were Mentally Challenged. What does these children taught the world with their simple acts of kindness and concern for their kin?

Teamwork? Humanity? Equality among all? Successful people help others who are slow in learning so that they are not left far behind."

"Dear God, be good to me;
The sea is so wide,
And my boat is so small
(Breton Fisherman's Prayer)
"With your soothing fingers,
wipe away the lines that worries have etched on our faces.
Surround us with calm,
let us rest in the glow of peace,
as if we were encircled with the Moon's own light
(Ceisiwr Serith)
"Let our concerns and tensions drain away from us,
pouring as water into your Earth.
Let me be loved, let me be happy, let me be peaceful.
Let my friends be happy, loved, and peaceful.
Let my perceived enemies be happy, loved, and peaceful.
Let all beings be happy, loved, and peaceful.
Let the whole world experience these things
(Deepak Chopra)

Empty Your Cup

This Saturday my older sister and I went to watch a movie, the Forbidden Kingdom, one of dialogue by Jackie Chan reminded me of this famous oriental Zen stories. This is about emptying your cup or forgetting about previous knowledge, approach or belief about things.

If one truly desires to learn new things, one must have an open mind and not contradict any new lesson because it differs from a previous knowledge. However, I believe this story does not only apply about learning but also about moving on in life. How can you move on if you carry so many baggages with you? If you want to make a fresh start you must learn to let go of everything from your past. Removing all clutter to be able to fill it with new experiences, new memories, new things to achieve the true happiness you desire.

Here is how the story goes:

The Learned Professor came to the house of the Zen Master to ask to learn Zen.
"You are most welcome, " said the Master, inviting the Learned Professor in for tea.
They sat on cushions facing each other.
Preparing to make tea, the Master set a pot of water on the charcoal brazier on the floor in front of him, while the Learned Professor began to tell of all of the books he had read about Zen.
The water having boiled, the Master made tea while the Learned Professor told of all the insights about Zen he had gleaned from talking to other great scholars.
The tea made, the Learned Professor held up his cup and continued to talk about Zen.
The Master poured tea into the Learned Professor's cup. And he and poured...and poured...and poured, until tea was spilling over the top of the cup and cascading onto the floor.
"What are you doing?" cried the Learned Professor.
"The cup is full. No more will go in!"
"Your mind is like the cup,"said the Master.
"How can you expect to learn unless you first empty your cup?"

Secrets and Future

I glanced on one of the Koreanovelas my mom likes to watch during lunch time and I was struck by a dialogue said by one of the characters. He was proposing marriage to this woman, and to what I heard the woman works as a Guest Relations Officer (G.R.O.) and this guy is a crook.

He said, the dialogue was dubbed in Tagalog, “In life we have secrets and future." My secret is I loved Selina (another character in the show), my future is I want to be with you for the rest of my life”. “You once told me that we should forget our secret because it’s the past and we can’t do anything to change it. But what’s important is the future, what you want to happen in your life in the here and the now.”

I was stunned that was logical and true come to think of it. Reason I rather be in front of the computer instead of sitting down at the living area with my mom is because of her Koreanovelas, I think they are corny and just another drama about life’s tragedies and misfortunes and the stupidity and naivety of the main character.

But this particular dialogue was so outstanding it makes perfect sense. Secrets and future, we all have our secrets and we all have our future. We may want to keep our secrets buried forever in the past or use it as a tool to live wisely in the present and future. The future although it is always uncertain, we can plan at the present where we want to go and what we want to achieve because our past gave us the lessons and the realizations about what do we want and what is important to us.

Shawie of A Grateful Heart and Willard of Make Money Online with a College Student tagged me with a seemingly beauty pageant kind of question, so I was very much obliged to answer (yes, I am a frustrated beauty queen! LMAO)

Tagging requires you to start copy here:
1. Answer the Kid’s Question by Gregory Stock, PH.D. Remember: Don’t respond as you think others want you to. Respond the way you actually feel!
2. Add your name link to your blog3. Tag everybody else!

Kid’s Question #1: If you were the ruler of the world and you could have anything you wanted as well as have people do anything you wanted, do you think you would get greedy and mean or would you be a good and fair ruler? Please answer the question and put your name and link after.

If I have anything I wanted and have people do anything I wanted, I think I wouldn’t get greedy or mean but be a fair ruler to share all my blessing to the deserving people around me. Yes, there will be standards but if I am the ruler of the world I will assure that there is no poverty and everything that comes along it. Because poverty drives people cling to bad deeds just to get through their hunger if there is no poverty, there will be no crime and there will be world peace. I thank you.

(Hello everyone, including you, yes you, the one reading this! You have to answer this question here grab it and put it in your blog! )
