Hey guys. I know this is not Iloilo-related but I just want you to know that I have a new blog at Tennis Center 101. This one talks about all things related to tennis: tennis news, tennis schedules, tennis matches and score updates, the players, rankings, and tennis updates. So if you’re a major tennis fan like me, you can check out my new blog at and read about roger, rafa, serena, andy and a whole lot more.

Holiday Health Tips

Filed under: Features — augel @ 7:43 am

Philippine Christmas

Certainly, you and your family don’t want to miss the fun the holiday season brings - all the merriment, food and excitement. In line with this, the Department of Health (DOH) has the following health tips for this holiday season:

  • Plan Christmas activities for yourself and your family to prevent tension and stress.
  • Take care of yourself and your family against changes in temperature. Children and adults may become susceptible to cough, colds and fever. If your cough, colds and fever is more than five days, consult your nearest health station.
  • Prepare a well-balanced Noche Buena and Media Noche meals. Make sure that vegetables and fruits are on the table together with your traditional ham and queso de bola.
  • Be kind to your heart. Eat a moderate amount of nutritious foods to sustain your daily activities.
  • Drink plenty of liquids. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices to facilitate excretion.
  • Have enough sleep. Give yourself enough sleep so that the mind and body can rest.
  • Avoid crowded areas because bacteria that cause diseases multiply and spread easily. Airy and well-ventilated areas are essential to healthy living.
  • Use environment-friendly Christmas decors that cost less and are not fire hazards. Save decors for next year and store them in a safe place.
  • Buy toys with no pointed or sharp edges; nor too small toys that can cause choking.
  • Do not use fireworks and firecrackers during the Holidays. Make some noise even without fireworks and firecrackers.

Finally DOH advises, “Stay alive and whole for the coming year”. (PIA)

Weather has been bad lately here in Iloilo. Maybe not only here but for the whole of Visayas and Mindanao due to the southwest monsoon. I don’t know what that means. I just know that rain has not stopped raining since last week.

Learn Some Ilonggo

Filed under: Features — augel @ 2:07 pm

Most Ilonggos are actually fluent in English. They are also quite comfortable communicating with it. Just ask the hordes of Koreans coming to our humble city just to study and learn English.

Iloilo Dinagyang

Dinagyang Celebration

But nothing really beats the smile you can get from an Ilonggo when they hear you trying to speak their own language. This will surely get you in the good side of any Ilonggo.

Even if you only know how to say “Good Morning” (Maayong agá) it will endear you to the person whom you’re speaking and will definitely gain you an instant friend.
