Got great courtside seats Yeah!!! It was a hard fought game, which surprised me a lot. I expected our team to not roll over Duhok Iraq but at least not flex their muscles too much. It seems I’m over rating SMART GILAS. Lebanon and Quatar are now surely going to be problematic teams. I just hope they find it in them to get to the next level! The coliseum was probably 60-70 percent filled, I am probably not going to get good seats any longer for the coming games.

Or more accurately, samahan ninyo akong manood!
Agree. GSIS must remember that they are (words stolen from a friend) a form of government mandated forced savings. GSIS are holding these funds in trust. Whenever I feel slighted by the service of a place I almost never make a scene; I just never return. For institutions like GSIS and SSS we do not have that option, this means we have to force them to give us the proper service. I salute this!!!
The charter on the state pension fund Government Service Insurance System must undergo revisions to include a provision on members’ rights, Senator Ralph Recto said Sunday.
In a statement, Recto said the GSIS Charter, or Republic Act 8291, must include a provision on the rights of GSIS members mandating the agency to expedite the processing of claims, to act with courtesy towards members, to regularly update its members on GSIS benefits, and to give its aggrieved members the “right to be heard.”
In its present version, the GSIS Charter does not have a provision on the rights of members.
“With these rights [upheld], no member of GSIS would sail into their sunset feeling bitter, empty and shortchanged by the same agency that they helped keep afloat through their monthly contributions,” Recto said.
The senator added that administrative sanctions await any GSIS official or unit violating the rights of the pension fund’s members.
Game 1: Iraq vs Jordan
Because of Yoshinoya’s amazing Gyudon I missed Iraq. vs Jordan.
Game 2: Syria vs. Iran
Iran is scary. They seemed to be playing at half speed but they gave Syria a good beating. Among the 5 teams I saw today Iran is the team that I fear the most against Team Pilipinas. To be honest save for a stroke of luck Ginebra style I can barely imagine us beating these guys.
Game 3: Philippines vs. Saudi Arabia
Great game for Japeth Aguilar. The team was playing like a team and it shows in how out of place Hontiveros was in the rotations of Team Pilipinas. Among all the players on the Philippine Team Hontiveros looked liked the odd man out. Fortunately I believe that they were playing him for Hontiveros to learn the system and not really to contribute substantially in this particular game. I think SMART Gilas lead after the second quarter and by the 3rd the game was all but finished. Kudos to the fans who booed loudly whenever the 3 point shooting bigs of the KSA team got the ball.
I think only Ballasteros didn’t have a single point. Hope he can make his mark and be more than just Team Pilipinas’ Human Victory Cigar.
Game 4: Lebanon vs. UAE
This was another lopsided match and seeing Lebanon was like seeing an older, bigger, more consistent shooting Team Pilipinas. I give them a small advantage over Team Pilipinas because their bigs are very agile. If we want to win against these guys we have to bring our A-game.
It irks me that I can’t buy courtside seats because someone bought them all. This doubly irks me when I see so many seats unoccupied. If you aren’t going to use them might as well give them to the fans who’d love to watch this very inspiring team.
Shouldn’t this mean that we have an awesome healthcare system because even if we spend far less than most countries ranked in healthcare cost we rank in the top 3rd in healthcare outcomes?
While the Philippines is ranked 60th among 191 countries in overall health system performance, it is in the bottom half in the world in health expenditures at 124th.
It looked liked miami had 3 Noahs and I believe that the effort made the difference. James and Wade were awesome!!!
Sobrang naastigan ako sa kantang ito. I quoted this to a friend last friday or was it saturday already:
“So scared of getting older I’m only good at being young So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun”
No I’m not color blind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but…
I just can’t sleep on this tonight
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
But honestly won’t someone stop this train
Don’t know how else to say it, don’t want to see my parents go
One generation’s length away
From fighting life out on my own
Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t but honestly won’t someone stop this train
So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we’ll never stop this train
See once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
And they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing
’til you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.
Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take this speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train
(think I got ‘em now)
Playing Adele songs over and over again strangely made me want to watch Jerry Maguire. You complete me… You had me at hello. Damn .
That’s one interpretation, but Adele is the first to acknowledge the irony of securing her professional success by singing about her personal failures. “I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on 21 work, because he’s the love of my life,” she says, before adding that she would have been willing to give up everything for him. Everything? “Well, I would still be singing in the shower, of course, but yeah — my career, my friendships, my hobbies. I would have given up trying to be the best.” Instead of giving up her career she has cemented it. “He made me really weak, but at the same time really fucking fearless, so I managed to channel that. I don’t know if I’ll ever beat this album in terms of how people connect to it.”
