here’s the problem: responding angrily to something makes you sound like your argument is based on a knee-jerk emotional reaction rather than fact. you can cite as many sources as you want, but you have no credibility once you’ve insulted the person you’re arguing against. not only have you lost the opportunity to change someone’s opinion, but you’ve now associated any correct arguments you’ve used with petty, whining, childish behavior, and that association will apply to every future conversation your opponent has about the topic, no matter who it’s with. in a perfect world, people would be able to separate logical arguments from someone’s inability to express their opinion civilly, but we don’t live in that world.

tl;dr swearing at someone will not prove your point, even if you’re right.

Napapagod na ako. ‘Yung pakiramdam na papasok ako ng trabaho na malinis, tas uuwi ako galing trabaho na madungis. Yung papasok ako ng trabaho na bagong ligo, tas uuwi ako galing trabaho na parang naligo pa rin…ng pawis nga lang. Yung papasok ako ng trabaho na mukhang sariwa, tas uuwi ako galing trabaho na mukhang lantang gulay. Yung papasok ako sa trabaho na mukhang virgin, tas uuwi ako galing trabaho na mukhang laspag. Yung papasok ako galing trabaho na amoy perfume, tas uuwi ako galing trabaho na amoy perfume din, yung nga lang DATU PUTI VINEGAR yung scent. Pagod na pagod na talaga ako sa ganitong routine araw-araw. :’(

Basic Chicken Fried Rice

What I had for lunch - a very simple chicken and egg fried rice. I would normally add spring onions and other vegetables, but that’s what happens when there’s nothing left in the fridge, you have a cold, need to eat, but don’t have the energy to go food shopping. It was tasty, quick to make and just what I needed though. :)

(serves 2)

Ingredients:

. Rice

. Chicken

. 2 eggs

. 1 onion

. 1 Tbsp fish sauce

. Sesame oil

. 2 garlic cloves

. 1 inch piece of ginger

. Soy sauce (I use Datu Puti, a naturally gluten free soy sauce sold in my local asian supermarket. Much more affordable than the GF soy sauces sold in normal supermarkets too!)

. Olive oil

Feel free to play around with the quantities.

Method:

Cook some rice.

Finely chop the onion, grate the garlic and ginger and cut some chicken into small chunks.

Heat up some olive oil on medium heat and fry the chicken. Once fully cooked, add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry briefly on low heat. Add the fish sauce and cook for 1 minute. Add soy sauce and cook for another minute. 

Add the cooked rice, turn the heat up to high and fry for a couple of minutes. Turn the heat back to low, crack two eggs on top, mix well and cover with a lid. Leave for a few minutes, until the eggs are fully cooked. 

Serve with a drizzle of sesame oil on top.

Enjoy.

This is a scapula (shoulder blade) of a small ox. Notice how it has been delicately carved with writing and figures. On the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, datu, or priests, of the Batak people use these carved bones as calendars and almanacs.  These bones preserved sacred knowledge and were passed from elders to younger priests. 

For farming communities, the calendar is an important tool to guide planting, growth, and the time to harvest.  They record time according to the movement of the sun and the moon.  The bone was also used as an oracle by a priest, or datu, to predict the future and to choose lucky or unlucky days for travel or important events, like the opening of a new rice field or a marriage. The calendar on this bone is represented by the rectangle filled with small squares. The 12 columns represent the twelve months.  The thirty vertical squares in each column represent thirty days in each month.  Days are marked with signs that tell whether they are good or bad for certain events.

The writing on the rest of the bone is written in Sanskrit, an ancient Buddhist language. Many of the characters and images can be understood only by its maker and his students.  However, we know that the scorpion represents the constellation Scorpio, a bad omen for most ceremonial events.  The other figure represents a gigantic serpent, Naga Padoha, who is pinned beneath the earth by a sword.  When he wiggles, the people feel an earthquake and shout “suhul, suhul” from village to village.  This word means “sword-grip” and is used to remind the gigantic serpent of the sword that pins him under the earth.

Limunsudan Falls is the highest 2-drops falls in the Philippines and is the least visited falls in all Iligan’s majestic waterfalls. Located at the farthest barangay Rogongon and can be accessed through Talakag, Bukidnon. The road is very rough. Not all tourists can see the falls because it is upon approval of the chieftains or datu with the consensus of the community. You have to ask permission first. If you are NGO, don’t attempt to go, they won’t allow you. There are some rituals from their Babaylan to give safety. Get a lot of coins because you will need them as offering. #limunsuda #limunsudanfalls #travel #iligan #travelph #choosephilippines #travelerphilippines #falls #explore #nature #like4like #follow4follow #instagood #instapic #instadaily
