iPhone X , To buy or not to buy?

Now it can be told and that surprise or suspense feeling have gone faster than the wind when everybody heard and get a glimpsed of that the newest iPhone series which comes with a hefty price to the almost 70% of its patrons. Some called it iPhone X-pensive, others branded it very fragile while to some… they see it as the most appropriate investment they could have given the payment schemes offered by telcos in any part of the world.

While most of the tech-adept age band belongs to the millennials who are all gaga over with the in and outs of their generation especially when it comes to gadgets. That status symbol they’re trying to project and the pressure to stay updated in any course of their lives through crisp and easily edited photos they’ve chosen to post in any of their social media outlet has become the new norm of the photographic-communication or expressionism of the 21st century.

What makes them do those things is nothing different to the social norms of the previous and antiquated generations as it was the eloquent minds of these creative people that drives them to desire and pursue the talk of the town tag, the newsmaker, center of attraction and the social status it could impact for the whole being of the person. Does this means that as long as the evolution of great invention and creation continues so does the intuitive minds of the coming generation to experience the joy and completeness of their existence.

Going back to the question, will you buy one or will not.. remains a word if not an act that needs to be redefine before a decision is made. As simple as this, of you’re projection to be more powerfully productive and creative in your everyday life then you need one after a deep thought of its pros and cons.

To buy or not to buy is as simple as to be or not to be. – Paquito

Game of Life We Play

Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers, been a bit busy and have to attend to other matters, anyway… let me share my thoughts on whats happening in our surroundings. Your thoughts are of the same importance and I wanna hear yours by using the Leave a Reply portion and feel free to share if you find this helpful for you and your circle of friends. Thank you and enjoy reading!

Never ending political upheavals and mudslinging. Extreme weather conditions, never before experienced flooding, irreversible loss of lives and cultural divide are among the few that constantly headlines our broadsheet, glossy thin magazines and the social media. People are learning to accept reality by picking up lives where they stumble upon. Elected officials were all pre-occupied of their own beliefs, capacity to think and personal agenda while the nature and man made destruction’s are continuously done in broad daylight. Is this the life we seem to know? or is this the game our lives must live by for us to survive?

Today’s generation seemed to be blinded by the fast pace rituals of social media, the new iPhone was introduced into the market where the so called added features made it more superior with its competitor and even to its own previous versions. C’est la vie some people will say. And who cares the other side of the world will say, once asked what can he do to make the world a better place to live despite the alarming threat of nuclear attack from the  isolated North Korea.

We cannot ask people to do things we wanna do, there is no the same priority of importance any two person has in this world. For life is a game we usually play always to our advantage.

Regaining that Steam

Hola chika Amiga’s en Amigos! Kumusta?… We kept a low profile the past month as we’ve  faced several uncertainties and that’s  quite normal to any person in this planet. Have you experienced the lows and the lack of drive vibes in times when you need it most? Some might say yes while other may have not. We felt kinda the same as a speeding train that loosen up in the middle of its course bringing a feeling of distress, disdain and uncertain future ahead of if we could still get to the destination on time. Stumble as they say is the best time to think of how to get up and continue what was started and move forward with brevity and goal…. but how you gonna do it is another question, isn’t it?

There are a millions of motivational quotes and stories that you can look for in the web but not all will fit in perfectly with what you were looking for as nobody in this world has the same challenges, success and destiny. Everyone’s unique culture, race, life outlook and needs and wants precedes the various actions and answers we provide in our daily lives.

Breaking out of the main stream even for a while  is one of the best thing to do, visiting new places is one of them and will gives us an added learnings and visual relaxation in order to regain that lost steam to propel us to the direction we wanted to be and continue to grow productively. Another great way to regain that vacuum is to reconnect with trusted colleagues and try to catch up to divert your attention.

But these are merely adlibs or side-bet’s of the true state of your being. To win a game even the simplest one is to play it in a wiser and smarter. Face the music… dance the tune on step at a time and all will become well once the tune has faded to it’s last note and sound. The sweet sweat you’ve produced are the pressures of the game that’ll leave you better and happier than ever.

Paquito Answer for the Day 36

The answer always comes from within and from the other mouth or suggestions as at the end of the day it is our life that will be satisfied and theirs to be complimented. Have a great reading ahead and please dont forget to share… it’s free!

Are you a health buff ? Conscious in every food intake and strictly following exercises and training regimen to stay fit ? Are you really hitting the right routine, repetitions and pain? And does it  really make you feel complete doing the never ending routine day in and day out for the last couple of months, years and perhaps half of your lifetime, … and what is that really on your mind that you’re doing all these stuff… pause for a while and better ask yourself what it really it is!

Nobody can give you the answer you want … but you. – Paquito

EXTRA

After a week long of absence, I’m back and ready to keep you all again excited and a little exhausted with my next few blog articles. What I’ve learned from the week past the eleventh hour was a wake up call that am pretty sure nobody wanted to hear about. Better maintain the positives and improvement at every turn … that must be the key to the next days, weeks, months and years ahead of us.

These past weeks I did a couple of physical fitness activities to realigned my health vis-a-vis with my age as man’s health nowadays were far different during the 70’s , 80’s where food supply and social activities were limited to several predictable results as compared to today’s generation. Some said it’s a distracting tool to keep everyone so aware of whats going on in the society whit to some its totally the opposite. Nobody needs to hype something if we can see the real deal up front, right.

A lot of social injustices are committed every minute around the world and seems the real solutions will not come from any new gadget or invention and perhaps Nobel interactive portal… the solution is us, yes … if we keep away from committing one, that will be more than enough to lower the figures and help shape a better and progressive economical revolution every people been searching for. Chill.

Behind every difficulty there must a reasonable amount to look for better opportunity – Paquito

Paquito Answer for the Day 35

We often find ourselves relying with what theories says of a certain circumstances that somehow put the wide array of probable solutions at bay instead of making it work then look for the expected parametric results as dictated through matrix of as we’ve mentioned, theories. Most often than not, we did see it fail, one by one the matrix of exponential figures and past results will never evolved unto exact expectations but way below or above “standards” …. Astronomers utilized mathematical theories to determine the distances of each heavenly bodies circulating the vast black space called the universe. Not until man was able to detached himself from the massive pull of gravity, we were able to determine and disclosed openly that the earth is indeed spherical in shape and not flat as what those forefathers have known.

Man never leave his sight of those floating mass..  thinking to colonize and set foot the humankind and start a “new civilization” far from our very own beautiful earth. Away from the pressures of society, common laws and proceed with desire of creating everything from scratch to perfect the flaws and errors that costed millions of lives emanated from war, famine, climate change and weapons of mass destruction. The thirst to start new is always there… left undone.

Theory is to a man, reality is to divine. – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 38

If we are all created equal, then how come people find it hard to understand each other? Why do people have to resort to arms conflict, acts of terror and deceit?.. Can’t it be possible to resolve all of these miscues, incomprehension and whatever you may call it to settle and talk in every detail the want’s and needs of each other ? War … the act, mankind shouldn’t have invented or done long before the advent of advance technology. For as long as the inventions and technology keeps on enhancing peoples lives … the same those people will try to find it useful to their own in advancing their thirst to succeed with whatever amount of harm it may inflict to the humankind.

Man haven’t had spent a single day without conflict… I wonder how peaceful it is to experience one even for a while. – Paquito

 

Thank You For Being My TATANG

He usually arrives home late and leave too early the next morning … earlier than the sunrise literally speaking. His hands clearly showed hardships, hardship that started in his younger years… his father and mother died when he was at a very  young age before turning seven, constantly changing places from one sibling to another being the youngest of eight. A life that started way back during WWII where his loud cries are somehow annoying and have had spelled detention or worst their life…, should’ve they been caught during the Japanese invasion. Never got to finish even the Junior High for a guide was lost earlier than expected. Started seriously working part-time raising and dressing chicken in one of his distant relatives (distant for no one can ever trust a basic education graduate, attended his classes only during examinations used borrowed papers and pencils being the poorest of his class, but got to perfect several of it having born gifted and wise) yard, moving from town to town until the last head of livestock’s are sold. Oh how hard it was, working instead of playing with his generation. He fell in love and married at a very  young teenage year and raised his family within the realm of good humility.

And with all these hardships and longings for a loving parents he outgrew the most challenging phases of his life, young and full of simple dreams. His simple dreams becomes the wall to believe and continue chasing it …. and he succeed. No amount of thank you even over the brim is enough to express my thoughts and happiness for guidance and wisdom’s you bring  in my journey … thank you for shaking and teaching me all you can,. ..  and always showing me the way and thank you for everything.

Through thick or thin you’re the best . HAPPY FATHER’S DAY  Tatang – Paquito

Let me share to you a song we rarely heard in regular radio stations, it’s a perfect gift to our soul and leave positive thoughts how great all the father in this world are. No matter what race, religion and other societal description but as a Father to their Children. Credit to Mr. Jon baker for this wonderful music.

Music & Lyrics by Jon Barker.

A son rarely tells his Father How he really feels,
A handshake or a pat on the back Is all that he reveals,
I’d like to right that wrong,
Here in this little song.

Thank you for shaping my life,
Thank you for teaching me all you can,
You are no ordinary man,
You make me everything I am.

Thank you for taking the time,
Thank you for showing me the way,
And thank you for being thereWhen I need you,
Thank you for every single day.

Now I’ve been blessed with a son of my own,
Got my own bedtime stories to tell,
If I can raise him half as wellAs you raised me,
Guess I’ll be doing pretty well.

Thank you for your guiding hand,
Thank you for making my dreams come true,
You’re an extraordinary man,
And I hope you’re as proud of me
As I am proud of you.

Thank you for giving me life,
Thank you for showing me good from bad
.I guess I’m only really trying to say,
Thank you for being my Dad.

Even though the years drift away, I
never took the time just to say,
‘I love you, and I always have,
And thank you for being my Dad.’

‘Thank you for being my Dad.’

Thank You for being my Dad

 

The Ten Best Reasons to Date an Architect

A lot of Juliet’s are always on the lookout for their Romeo’s and romantic acquaintances in work places, pubs and restaurant’s or in any part of the world. Varied qualifications and excitement are in the offing once a date is set either through blind date or pre-arrange meetups or just the so called casual ones. Have you ever asked those women what basic qualification they’re looking at,… for a guy or gentlemen aside from being good looking or  with a whopping sex appeal who has the v-shape torso even in plain shirt. But those are just minor details if the woman is to be ask. I don’t like to sound biased but let me give these girls the best benefits and advantages on why they should choose to try to date an Architect . Any suggestions girls?

  1. Architects are artistically romantic in a sense that they put in extra effort to any simple gift they gave out. From colors to sizes and the practical essence that it’ll be useful for your daily routine and it comes with a personalized caricature of you.
  2. They’re trained to stay late at night and even spend sleepless nights during their college years, so if you’re on a GY shift type of work… nothing to worry when it comes to bringing you to your workplace needs him to be awake at past the wee hour of twelve and he’s still smelling like a baby.
  3. You’re searching for a sensible discussion and matured topics? Look away no more as Architects are all genuinely bright and easily converse in any topic a woman wants.. be it politics, current events and even the most trending fashion as they’re always dress not only to impress but also to express professionally romantic.
  4. Architects will never ever let you foot or share the bill once the date is done.. Not only that they’ll never bring you to any so so restaurant but they’ll see to it that you have the best moment with him while listening to soothing musical enthralls of a seasoned pianist of the hotel plush lobby’s.
  5. If you love going places and got a lot in your bucket list, try to give him a chance let him lead you the expedition of places you never been to and of course riding his two-door weekend car… top down.
  6. Do you love going to the exhibits, expositions, furniture launch or collecting interior design mementos? Architects monthly schedule always booked for any of these as they don’t wanna be left behind in terms of ins and outs of products and high end house furnishings, with a glass of wine and cocktails.
  7. Every time you read the Sunday broadsheet it comes along with a glossy special real estate living magazine issues and you can’t help but salivate and dream of seeing these pre-selling, project launching and posh subdivision enclave tripping, you’ll be lucky if the Architect wooing you is involved in any of these as it’ll be a breeze for you to see things… perfectly natural after a warm welcome cold drinks.
  8. Architects love nature and they always make time to have an outdoor activities. At least woman will have time to wear comfy jeans and shirt and forget for a while those women’s dresses and stilettos.
  9. Expect a date to sports event, ball games both indoor and outdoor. A time with your Architect date to be in a casual-sport get-up. They love to jog, go to the gym for workouts and play with you some badminton games and a lot more. Golf is where they’re also good at… so hit the greens and support his championship game.
  10. Before we forget the most romantic part of your date, movies …. yeah women love to see any movie they don’t really want and it’s just that they’re testing the character of any guy they went out in a cold dark places. But with the Architect, it’s far very different. They always read movie reviews before indulging to it and that’s a big difference than having a guy who did seem don’t know which of the blockbuster to watch for as they’re really not that interested of any movie reviews at all… in addition to that, Architect’s know how to secure seats and that is after using their tech prowess.

This is an insight taken from several men from the profession who are already taken by those woman who were able to understand and discover the valuable and humble traits possess by an Architect. Yes, they always argue but it is by far which is which or where is better thing to go after at and not the argument you have in mind., besides… Architect’s always build great relationship within the foundation of trust, love and understanding. Can’t find an Architect date, why not find a friend first and see it for the rest while hoping for the best.

Relationship is not by profession but by the person. – Paquito
