Dr. Kcat

I often saw a mother with many bumps on the skin (in different sizes) in front of our school gate dropping and fetching her son to school. When I saw her, I thought, maybe she has a skin disease or something. I had no idea what it was nor am I curious. All I know is she's a schoolmate's parent.

KCAT CAN: Beautiful In My Eyes

Geraldine has given me further inspiration. She has given me further strength. And most important of all, she has further rooted my Faith in God.

Regardless of her physical appearance, Geraldine Javier Oliva is, and will always be, beautiful in my eyes.

MANILA, Philippines – I was staring blankly at my computer and praying to God to give me something to write about when my Mom called out that dinner was ready. It has become a habit for me to watch television while having my meal.

That night, the habit became a blessing for it was an answered prayer for me. I saw Geraldine Oliva on TV and was moved by her exceptional courage, strength and faith. So I immediately searched more about her on the internet and admired her even more.

KCAT CAN: Rockin' My World

ROCK N ERA - October 8, 2010
Super thank you to Malen and Infiniteam!

MANILA, Philippines – Since 2005 when my Mom and I started our fund drive for my medical needs, whenever we saw a benefit concert, we would always say to each other, “Sana tayo din no?” So after five years, the heavens granted our wishful words. Last Oct. 8, 2010, my dream of becoming a concert beneficiary became a reality.

Malen, a schoolmate, sent me an email and told me how she had been inspired by my strength. She said that she would definitely think of something in order to help me. After a few weeks, she sent me another message saying she belongs to a group of young professionals who organize benefit concerts. They wanted me to be one of their beneficiaries. My mom and I were so happy when we read her message and learned that three of the country’s top bands, The Dawn, True Faith and Bamboo, were going to perform in the concert. Rock N Era, the concert, was made possible by Uno1One Productions in cooperation with Infiniteam Enterprise Ltd. It was held at Metrobar in West Avenue, Quezon City.

To my favorite YAYA in the whole universe..

Twister Fries is back!

This morning, Nuffnang delivered the news that Mcdonald's Twister Fries is back! I ♥ mcdo's twister fries! Since I was supposed to have an acupuncture session this afternoon, I told my mom that we have to buy it afterwards. I was so looking forward to it.. But due to the heavy rain, we postponed going out and told her: "pero punta kang mcdo ah"

KCAT CAN: My Strange Eyes

My mom was so anxious when I told her that my right eye's vision worsen, so she immediately scheduled a check-up with my eye doctor.. She can't get over her worry even after the check-up since my right eye won't go back to it's normal state anymore and I need to undergo eye surgery soon to prevent my left eye from damaging it with too much exposure since my eyelids are weak and won't blink properly.. My right eye will be stitch in half too so that it won't continuously swallow out..

It's just a minor surgery and it's for the best.. What really matters is that I could see. Period. My vision's kinda blurry, but thanks to my glasses, I'm seeing well.. :)

So I decided to write about it.. :)

Still OKAY inspite & despite.. 
with my eye specialist, Dr. Rey Santos back in 2008.. I was still weak then and my face was huge due to my steroids intake (for my brain tumors)

MANILA, Philippines – A few nights ago, I asked my Mom, “Ma, madumi ba right eye ko?” She said, “No.” Besides, she just finished cleaning my right eye with the eye gel solution that my ophthalmologist prescribed for my eye maintenance.

The ERA Rocked!

Almost Almost Blind Right Eye

I always check the vision of my right eye by closing my left eye and using just my right to see.. and then I was surprised to see than I can't see anything on my right anymore.. I can only see a major major super blurry light.. the silhouette image I used to see before is nowhere to be found..

i edited a picture to show how my right vision used to be and how it is now..

KCAT CAN: Food for Happy Thoughts

happy thoughts cannot make us fly, but beautiful and happy thoughts can lift us above the cares and problems of daily living, allowing us to do our tasks with greater ease and comfort.

MANILA, Philippines – Whenever someone comments about my love for food, I would jokingly say “I’m just paying my debts because the thought of eating again was one of the reasons why I got out of the hospital.”
