Mayor mauled a 56-year-old father & 14-year-old-son

The world has gone crazy talaga!!!

"The world has gone crazy. Two politicians beat up a defenseless 56-year-old father and his 14-year-old son. At a golf course. I swear to God, I thought golfers were decent people. You would think politicians were decent people. I guess not. I guess they gang up on 56-year-old men and beat up pleading 14-year-old kids."
-Bambee dela Paz

Read the rest of the story here.

I Love this Quote

"I am no one special. Just a common man with common thoughts. And I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me, that has always been enough."

I have the ebooks and audiobooks din.. (Thanks to Cris) Though di ko naman magagamit yun audiobooks, goodluck.. Haha. wala lang, trip lang.. Haha.

Watched Twilight. Watched!

Parang teenager lang.. Haha!

Yey! Watched Twilight with Talitha, Ysiad, Jepoy & Camille this afternoon at Greenhills.. I'm looking forward for the DVD and the subtitles but of course I already know the story and I've read some of the *leaked* scripts flying around the net plus the subtitled scenes from the movie on youtube.. Hehe. Our (ysiad & me) only complain was 'bitin'.. We want more of Edward & Bella kilig scenes! Haha! But of course the movie is great.. It's twilight! Love the books! It's just obvious that it's a low-budget film.. Which is true, with only 37M$(?) budget.. But still it's a good movie.. The story seem to be happening so fast.. I get it though, the book is 495(?)pages and it has to fit a 2-hour film.. And stayed true to the book.. I enjoyed watching talaga.. Watched. Walang Rinigan yan.. Ang teenager ko.. New Moon naman next! Then Eclipse.. Eh Breaking Dawn kaya?


...I'm watching Twilight later at 4:40pm with Talitha, Ysiad, Jepoy & Camille at Greenhills Promenade. We got tickets for reserved seating already.. Woohoo!

I Love the books.. So, I'll watch. Hope it's good. Watch. Not listen.. Haha. :P

Habang may tenga, may pag-asa

I am Maria Kathrina ‘Kcat’ Yarza. I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) in 2004. Complications of the tumor growth in my brain changed my vision and gave me numbness/weakness in my left arm and legs which made me partially disabled. The fluid build-up in my brain and the bilateral acoustic schwannomas gradually affected my hearing. In January 2006, I totally lost my hearing. I was prepared to face the world of silence and accept what was happening to me but I never lost hope that MIRACLES do happen. And they did! I came across the Auditory Brainstem Implant on the internet, and this was the start of another journey in my life. I launched my hEAR (Help my EAR hEAR) campaign.

Thursday, October 23, 2008

New Products

Hello super friendly friends! My hEAR campaign is a success and my cochlear implant is a success.. Thanks for your prayers and support.. *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* I'm hearing now.. Though I still can't understand sounds clearly.. Soon. Soon. But I can already recognize every sound..

Anyway, my fund raising is still ongoing.. MY CI isn't fully paid yet and I'm raising funds for that.. I always find ways, so here's the way.. I'm selling new line of products, of course by me.. :) This is my way of sharing what I can..

I'm now selling Purple Wristbands for 60pesos with the words: I CAN & LIFE MUST GO ON engraved on it; and Button Pins for 35pesos with the quotes I lived by..

The Gift

I have a private blog for 5 years now.. I just feel like writing for myself, to myself.. No need to contain others in my dramas.. Haha. Not that I'm being an introvert, but it's better that way.. It's helping me.. a lot! I blog in there whenever I feel like it.. Eh I felt like blogging there and tweaking it this morning.. Then as usual, I re-read some of my old post.. Then I found out when I think I became strong - emotionally and spiritually.. Some things are just better kept private.. Besides, I'm only human, I have flaws too.. Haha.

Let us pray for Yvonne

Please pray for Yvonne Foong.. I dunno know her personally, I'm just a frequent reader of her blog.. I came across her site when I was researching about NF2 & ABI.. She's an NF2 patient as well and is currently benefiting from ABI who lives in Malaysia.. I really admire her courage and strength.. Before I decided to start my fund raising campaign, I was asking myself: "can I really make it, can I really raise funds?" Though I know I can do it, but still I want to be sure.. Then I saw Yvonne. After reading her previous blog entries, I decided: I can do this. And I did! Anyway, please please please include yvonne in your prayers.. She's struggling right now because her tumors became worse.. She's still strong in spite of.. Basta pray for her ah!

Kathrina & Katrina will hear

Katrina Rambongga
