10 Least Viewed Blogs

Like in every store with slow moving items, I would presume that every blogger also has at least one slow income-generating post. It wasn’t that bad as I see it. Sometimes, what writers like to talk about is not what other people want to hear. Despite of that I still continue to write about things that inspire me to write, may it be readers magnet or not. So ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present to you my top ten least viewed blogs.

Tax, Why are You Such a Burden?


It is December. It means not only Christmas celebrations, parties and vacations but also big tax deductions.

Since it is the last month of the year, it is expected that everyone especially those who are employed would receive their bonuses and extra compensations. It sounds like a lot of money, right? That was my impression before. Every time I heard my teachers complaining about their payrolls every December. I thought they were only being greedy. Now, it turns out I am the ones blubbering about what I saw on my pay slip. The world really is round!

I Joined Toastmasters and I Got What I Needed


If you think you’re not good, then you need toastmasters. If you think you’re good enough, then the toastmasters club needs you. This is a favorite quote of area 83, which I heard from a friend club Cancabato Bay toastmasters. I like it because it applies to me both the first sentence and the second sentence. 
A few years ago, I joined toastmasters because I knew I wasn’t good enough as a communicator. I used to stutter in front of a crowd. After being on stage I used to feel like I should have done better, then I would feel disappointed about myself. During my first speech in the toastmasters meeting, I really couldn’t construct my thoughts on stage clear. I was almost talking nonsense.

I Won But Not Again!

Before the speech evaluation contest last October 1 in Cebu, a lot of things ran in my mind. They were all perfect anticipated alibi materials if I wouldn’t win in the contest.

Few nights before the event, I took home a gray colored pen I found during a farewell party I attended. I really couldn’t help the temptation to pick it up though it was just an ordinary pen. I only did it out of stupidity. Then I thought if ever I won’t win, it would be because of karma. So karma came, I didn’t win.
I also thought what I would wear during the contest would matter. I considered that I should wear the same long sleeve and the same pair of jeans during the area 83 contest, where I won.  Instead, I decided to wear my maroon short sleeve polo and a black pair of slacks. That would be a jinx combination of colors if I wouldn’t win. And yes, maybe maroon and black really shouldn’t be paired.

Answers to questions about Telephone Conversation

1. Who is talking in the poem?
The speaker of the poem is a dark West African man. He was searching for a new apartment. Instead of discussing price, location, amenities, and other information significant to the apartment, they discussed the speaker's skin color.


2. Describe the language use.
The language used is full of irony and sarcasm. The words spoken were the exact opposite meaning. It is ironic that the speaker calls it a self-confession when he warns the landlady about his being African. 


3. Cite some lines that show racial discrimination.
- Are you light or very dark? - This is an irrelevant question to ask for a costumer asking for an apartment.
- What's that? - This is a question the landlady asked after the man described his color. It is an obvious mockery to him pretending she doesn't know what he meant.
-That's dark, isn't it? - The landlady confirms her distaste to any African person. 


4.Give some incidents or situations which show racial discrimination in our society or other culture as well.
Racial discrimination is evident when there is someone different in the group. A group of Tagalog-speaking people usually makes fun of a new-comer Cebuano who hardly speaks Tagalog. The same way, a group of Cebuano-speaking people usually dislikes a new-comer Tagalog. Another example is the divisiveness of schools. Say during school convention, if you are from UC, you have the tendency to only make friends with those also from UC. We may not be aware of it but that is what usually happens.

A Dozen of Musical Movies You Need to Watch

Watching movies is always my way of exile from the stressful reality of life. A lot of things can happen in movies that can never happen in real life. Movie character seems to always have their happy endings. They have their defined destiny, which are always predetermined. And sometimes I would imagine that those things could happen to me as well. There are elements in movies that are very captivating. These elements often stick to my memories. The musical scenes are one particular example of this element. Seeing characters singing their emotions always inspires me. Here are a dozen of musical movies or movies with musical scenes that I could never forget.

Etiquettes Not Applicable to Filipino Dining Table

I was once invited to conduct a small seminar about formal dining etiquette in front of junior and senior high school students. I said “Let me first think about it.” I was so reluctant to take the challenge because I have not experienced yet talking about that particular topic especially in front of an audience. “There are so many resources in the internet,” I was told. Of course I knew that, I said to myself. Indeed I found so many articles and presentations through Google. Most of them though talk about stuff that I think are not applicable to me or to Filipino dining table even in formal gathering.

Simple Triond Experiment

With Lord Banks article “Triond Why Do I Bother!“, I got inspired to conduct this simple experiment here in Triond. Like what he said, he did not want comments like “Nice article, Good share, etc.” In my previous article, I referred these comments as cliché comments. In contrast to what I’ve said on that article, cliché comments may be good for “hits purposes” but the essence of helping each striving writer grow is questionable. One of my personal reasons of submitting articles in Triond is for me to improve my writing. And receiving these “almost-auto generated” comments won’t help me at all in my pursuit. So, this is how my simple experiment goes:
