It has been five years ago since the last major refurbishment made to my house. Since then the house maintenance received simply comprised of cleaning. There is a wall leakage that I have been grappling with for a more than a year now. I had it fixed but the leak is still there. As a result, the cupboards got rotten and some cabinet drawers got stucked and could hardly be opened. The fix should start from the source of the leak. I am just waiting for this rainy season to be over so I can have a house repair in this part of the kitchen. I would need ready to install cupboards and 36" Drawer Slides. I try to maintain a cozy home, but until these repairs are done, my house is not worth the visit.
The city fiesta in my place is long gone and over last June 30 but I can't help but recall the trace it left with my one year old car. It left dents and car scratches and its front signal light cover on the left side broke. My daughter drove the car on June 27 when many entertainment shows and attractions were held in the downtown area. Daughter never elaborated the details on how the car got those traumas. I smelled something fishy why she kept mum over the car damage thing. The car had a fantastic repair as it now looks like brand new all over again. Thanks to the car repair mechanic and the car shop owner who fixed the car in three days at a lower cost. Driving experience with a car that just had damage lowers self-confidence. It is an unexplainable feeling. But now no more. The car is now looking fresh and new like it never had any car damage at all.

After the traumatic typhoon Yolanda six month ago, another traumatic experience is here to set in. My mother died at 88 years old. She died during the celebration of my natal day last May 18. It is another painful experience for me losing a mother. I will never get to call my ever patient and understanding "Inay" ever again. She celebrated here 88 years old last year and I thought she would still have more birthdays to come but she succumb to cardiovascular stroke last May 18. It was her third stroke attack. The wake is being done now at the St. Peter Memorial until May 23. On May 24 at 8am, her remains will have the internment at the Catholic Cemetery in Tacloban City. I pray that her soul rest in peace.

I am now in Cebu City for a speaking engagement starting tomorrow until Friday. It feels good to be in a place free from traces of typhoon destructions. Foremost, I enjoy the fast internet connection access provided by the hotel to my laptop. Apparently, I am enjoying the wifi connection because from night right after dinner until this early morning I am still awake scouring the blogosphere and the web world. I am not mindful of the time even if I still have a speaking engagement tomorrow morning. Well, I hope to explore the net more and I can't get enough of it. I hope to still sleep even for only a couple of hours before my speaking engagement. I just love it here in Cebu City, because of the fast wifi connection which I have been deprived in Tacloban City, after typhoon Yolanda striked.

What a way to enjoy an internet connection while sipping iced tea or any juice drinks in the hotel where I went this afternoon with a friend. The hotel is right within the heart of the city. I met with a friend in this hotel to talk about my insurance advisorship and I was glad with the fast wifi connection the hotel has. The hotel has very reasonable restaurant food rates. I am sure to be back there within this week. I hope to bring there a client.
Just as I suspected my laptop was really infected with viruses. I bought an anti virus last year and had only installed it successfully today. The activation code could not be successfully encoded without an internet connection the reason why it was only installed now. A stream of viruses were detected and cleaned when a scan was made in the whole computer system. It really pays to have an updated anti virus to a laptop otherwise the life span of the laptop will be shortened. Also, the files you have exerted efforts to store will be in the risk of being infected.

I was just mentioning about problems in my previous posts and here I am again mentioning about them. I am glad that I don't engage in drugs as my coping mechanism. For some, it is their coping mechanism. However, the bad part of it is the addiction. There are although treatment like opiate drug detox to treat the addiction for drugs but it is still best to avoid engaging in illegal drugs. It helps though that there are effective treatments for those who are addicted to drugs. These drugs can be accessed at a mouse click away. More than drugs however, it is the person who is receiving the treatment to have the willingness to be treated, otherwise all treatments will be futile.
Since the Super Typhoon Yolanda, everything has not been normal. Psychologically, it is traumatic since everywhere you see is associated with the effects of Yolanda. Minor problems encountered is aggravated because the stress is always there and it is immediately aggravated by any minor problems. When these would end is an uncertain phenomenon. I was driving this morning when I just sobbed and cry because of a problem I remember. The triggering element that made me cry was the big pile of debris and many small children were scavenging through them. How hard and difficult life is. It is full of problems and stresses. However, I came to think that I am still lucky and the people around me are still lucky because we are in good physical health. There are many whose problems are bigger than what I have. It is a reason for me to somehow feel fine and go on with my day. I might as well meet with my friends later in the afternoon and have coffee with them.
