The Heartist painter Joey Velasco passed away last July 21st. He was the artist who painted the famous Hapag ng Pag-asa which showcased Jesus Christ and instead of his followers, there were poor kids instead. The kids he used in the painting were real kids he helped feed.
According to news reports, he suffered from a life-threatening kidney ailment and days before he passed away, he had a heart attack and seizures.
May his soul rest in peace. And I know he is now witnessing a real supper with Jesus Christ.

I am so curious and itching to watch Memento by Christopher Nolan. I swear after watching Inception, I had this overwhelming desire to watch all his films. I didn’t even know Nolan was the director of Insomnia, one of my favorite movies of all time.
I will find a copy of this movie and I will watch it right away when I get my hands on it.
Somebody here watched Memento?
It’s so hard to be sick these days. You can’t work and then you have to spend for medicines. I was out for the week because of coughs and colds. I wasn’t able to do anything. There were no updates here or at my other blog. Too bad because I had so many things I wanted to share with all of you.
Anyway, I will write now and will schedule a few entries to be published within the week.
A good guy snapped this shot of the Discovery Channel‘s headquarters in Silver Spring, which has been quite appropriately outfitted for the cable channel’s annual Shark Week. You’ll never go in the water again!
Now how cool is that building, huh?!?
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything You gave me”.
- Erma Bombeck
Wouldn’t it be cool to stand in front of your Creator and tell Him that you utilized all the natural talents He gave you?
I would like to believe that He gave me the ability to write, albeit moderately average only, and the ability to balance the books of accounts of companies. I would like to believe that I have used the latter ability to the best that I can but that I feel I am more called to use the former ability to the fullest.
What about you?
Can you imagine our former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo lining up anywhere in the country she once ruled over to pay for something? You need not imagine anymore! Just look at this photo…
Yes, that’s GMA (Pampanga representative, by the way), her husband Mike Arroyo, and son Dato. They are lining up at a counter to pay for the airport tax for their flight to Hong Kong yesterday.
Life is like a wheel. Sometimes you’re up, next time you’re down.

I’ve burned bridges one time too many. And half of it was really my fault. I admit as much. Along the way, I realized that attaching myself to persons I don’t really know is bad. It was bad and it happened too many times in the past.
I try not to be too trusting anymore. It was my downfall and it will continue to be my downfall if I don’t watch out.
Burning bridges is bad. I don’t get to return to places I’ve been in, or meet up with people I was with. But when trust becomes an issue, you cannot help but hear the ripping of the bond you once formed with the person.
It becomes inevitable when trust is no longer there.
Finally! I am able to think of an appropriate title for the revamp of this blog. Organized Chaos. It’s the state of my mind. I love organizing but I always end up in chaos. I love watching movies, working really hard for a bigger paycheck, and as my tagline says, I am a serial organizer.
What do you think of my new title and tagline, huh?
In hope you come visit me here within the week because I will be putting out several entries I am working on.
Expect movie reviews, some organizing ideas, a lot of interesting odd news, and more about work.
Happy blogging! And welcome to my newly revamped blog!
Don’t you just feel a movie marathon isn’t complete without popcorns and some ice cold drinks?
Happy Monday to all!
