Room with a view

Life is never easy in the city. The rising cost of living due to the escalating price of oil is making everybody feel hell is right here, now on earth. Hell it is, if we live without the usual utilities. How do I blog without the laptop or the desktops? How do I cook our favorite dishes? How do I get to watch my favorite celebrity chefs and celebrity travelers on TV? Oooohhh. That would be oh so not fun. ( Spoken like a true blue Gossip Girl fan) :-) I am thinking silly. Life is more than all these things combined, right. Oh yeah? Wrong!

So when life wears me down, I look outside my side of the bedroom window and this is what I see.
Having to gaze at all these inanimate and seemingly cold rooftops, electrical wirings, and lording it over them makes me feel bigger than how I feel at that precise moment. I grow, believe you me, relaxed somehow, in complete control.

I realize that city living has taught me to stare at rooftops, to while away the time, to get a better grip of what seems to be an overwhelming feeling of getting drowned with no life guard in site. The truth is the view actually leaves me less panicky. Ah, yes. The trees remind me that there is a God somewhere out there.

I think this is not a good day for me. And shoudn't I be posting this in my wellness blog?

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.

A Book About Wonderful and Amazingly Written Letters

I found this link and it tells about a book about letters written from the heart. I specifically love this one written by a dying mother to her daughter.
Check it out I guarantee that if you haven't written a snail mail in a long time, this will encourage you to write something again on paper and mail it through the Postal System.
