SMF - Forum

SMF stands for Simple Machines Forum, it is the forum software that I used on my site and its free;

I have not posted for days now. I was so busy creating this forum on my site. At first I thougth its impossible. Whew, it was not impossible though, but sure is not easy. I have created this forum now and its already gaining members by time. You go check it out if you like. The link is :

Without any background in web programing and coding stuff, I took myself

to the test. It was hard, I needed to learn new stuff, read all the papers needed and thanks God i did made it.

The next step was changing the themes on the forum, its not that hard, you just upload it and extract all the files then install, only it is server sided way.

The next problem I encountered was putting the ads on my Forum, this is the hard part, since not all themes can easily be edited. Somehow, thru trial and error, i changed the themes programming from the inside, i happen to solved it.

Well, my forum is up and running. Good thing. I hope I'll gain more members by time..
Ciao people!

A Smile

In physiology, a smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles most notably near both ends of the mouth. The smile can be also around the eyes. Among humans, it's customarily an expression of pleasure, happiness, or amusement, but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety, in which case it can be known as a grimace. There is much evidence that smiling is a normal reaction to certain stimuli and occurs regardless of culture. Happiness is most often the cause of a smile. Among animals, the exposure of teeth, which may bear a resemblance to a smile, is often used as a threat or warning display - known as a snarl - or a sign of submission. In chimpanzees, it can be a sign of fear. - Source: Wikipedia

To love and be loved is one of the most looked feeling in a lifetime of human beings. Love usually comes and goes. And for most people, seeking love usually comes with sacrifice and patience.

I really don’t want to talk much about love, really, because I myself belong to the group of people who

are already afraid to fall in love again. However, because it would be Valentine’s Day soon, I’m forced to write this post.

I may not be a master of love, but I tell you this, when you love someone cherish it forever. Love, for me is a sensitive thing. Loving means getting hurt, do sacrifices, and going crazy. Yeah, that’s it you go crazy, you go crazy that the decisions that you make are way beyond on what you supposed to do. You do stuff that compromise things and makes them complicated. Ironic that is.

Love makes a person feel young. It makes a person feel different apart from anybody; it motivates you to do things. Love also performs miracles, and love heals all wounds. Love should be unconditional; it should focus not within you, but rather for the benefits of both.

One of my favorite quotations of love is from Shakespear “Love is not love which alter when it alteration finds, or bends with a remover to remove. Oh no! It’s an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempest and is never shaken,” it’s from one of his books Sonnet 116. From these words on this phrase, it exemplifies what true love is supposed to be. Love should not change and never does it fade. And whatever things that might come, bad or good, love should stay.

If you find yourself loving, then live each day as if it were the last. Always tell and make your lover feel how much they mean to you. Always create a moment that would make each day especial. And for those who are still seeking, love will surely come to you in the most unthinkable way.

Today is February 14, 2008, Valentine’s Day that is, it’s the time that we, all over the world, dedicate this day to love. Love may not be best thing in life, but it surely will make the ride of life worthwhile.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Being a single parent

It started when the mother of my child decided to leave. Maybe she felt that she’s not happy with me anymore, so I just let her be in order for her to find her true destination and to find that place where she belongs and makes her comfortable.

Although it is sad and hard to accept that I would be a single dad, I can do nothing but embrace the fact. Is it hard? Yes, it is. You can ask every single parent that question and you will get the same answer. Even a couple raising a child is not easy, how much more you need to tackle it on your own, all by yourself, all by myself. Hard it is, but the happiness and that unexplainable feeling that comes to you when you see your lovely baby grow and tell you “I love you pa”, outweighs any aches, the hardships and the sacrifices you made.

At first I was afraid that I couldn’t be a perfect dad for my child, even now I’m still on the road to this, being a perfect dad that is. I know there could never be any perfect dad, it could never exist, but that is what I always keep in mind to encourage me and motivate me to do so, find that none existing ‘being’ called “Perfect Dad”. Perfect dad is being a father and at the same time being a mother as well. Doing so is very difficult and troublesome. Whew!

Take for example taking my baby to the mall, that’s what I usually do during my day-off, and on the jeepney sitting in the front seat, carrying her in my chest sleeping tight. I suddenly felt a warm liquid pouring down from my baby’s bottoms. Peeing in the jeepney, worst thing ever! It gave me a sigh and I just smiled to myself and pretend that nothing happened. Ha ha ha ha ha.. Funny ey!

And, on the mall, after changing her dress on the guys C.R. where everyone looks at you, you will find it very uneasy. There were always be that question on your head asking, “What are these guys thinking about me?”

And when it is eating time at a fast food restaurant, you ask your baby what she loves to eat? She’ll tell you ICE CREAM! My goodness, another unhealthy food, you have no choice but to buy her a cup or cone. Together ordering for yourself and for your baby, wondering if you’d be able to guess what she loves to eat. And if you happen to buy her spaghetti, then on the table, when she sees the spaghetti and suddenly twists her mind wanting to have fries and burger. What a headache. Then you go playing with the food just for her to take a bite to fill her stomach. Craziness, all for love. After all of these you then go to an amusement center, you buy her a ride and stuffs, emptying your pockets.

All of these just to see my baby enjoying and feeling happy, making me happy as well. Telling myself, she’s all I have, she’s what’s left of my once family. I want to be always there for her when she needs my love. I want to give her everything I can. I do this always on my day-off to make-up with her for the time I spent at work, away from her.

The saddest situation is, when your baby is not feeling well, when she’s sick, she’ll be irritable, she’ll easily cry and you can feel her discomfort. You do everything you can to pamper her, give her love and medicine, and take care of her. It will even come to a time when you have done everything and still you can feel and see your baby in pain. You just watch her, hug her tight, pray and wait for the medicines to take effect. Luckily I have a nurturing mother who helps me in these times.

Sometimes it comes to a point that I happen to tell myself, I shouldn’t have been the only one doing this, where’s her mother? My goodness. Waking up at night checking temperature levels, preparing the medicines, preparing food in the morning. Prepare some oats perhaps to fill her stomach.

Yet, after every struggle, when everything gets ok again, it makes me feel great. Makes me feel like I’m a real man. Ready to face the world raising a child alone. Arms wide open and proud. In every problem I solved and every mistakes I correct, it gives me a sense of fulfillment as a person. This is what I’m intended to do, this is the reason now why I live, no other person but me, all myself for my baby. I should impart the greatest things on this planet to my daughter. Apart from the material things that I should provide, the greatest thing for me to offer is to help her achieve Wisdom, a very important thing I myself haven’t found. For, if I have only found it, my family should have been intact still. I don’t want my daughter to follow my unpleasant path.

Wisdom is a God given gift, and if a child shall be taught the right ways to wisdom, she’ll be a master of many things, especially life. Life is a difficult field to master, and my job now is to open her eyes and make her differentiate between bad and good, set her good values, and make her strong to face the harshness of life’s realities.

To sum it all up, my world, my life, my intentions, my goal, my dreams, and my purist love shall be for my baby Christiane Francine Maning.

I love you my daughter. May you live a happy life.

My baby is ill. Tonsillitis :-(

Last night my baby got sick, she was shivering, she feels very hot. I hugged her tight and she hugged me also. I didn’t slept well because I was so worried about her. Then, I fell asleep. In the morning, I was awaken by her cry because she was so hot and she was shivering still, she was crying loud and staring at the roof with half eyes close.

I was so worried that I immediately took her in my arms and put her upon my shoulder, I sang her songs to comfort her. I can feel her body’s heat on my body. I then took the thermometer and measured her temperature. It measured 39o Celsius, I decided to take her to the doctor and so we did.

She was given medication for her to take for 7 days. The doctor’s initial finding was Tonsillitis.

Tonsillitis, this is a very common ailment, yet as for an ordinary person like me, I know nothing more about this ailment, except of course for its words alone, and what we already know about it, like it is usually has a symptom of swelling on the back of our mouth above our throat. But how does a doctor see Tonsillitis in medical point of view?

Extracted form source

Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils and will often, but not necessarily, cause a sore throat and fever.

There are 3 main types of tonsillitis: acute, subacute and chronic. Acute tonsillitis can either be bacterial or viral in origin. Subacute tonsillitis (which can last between 3 weeks and 3 months) is caused by the bacterium Actinomyces. Chronic tonsillitis, which can last for long periods if not treated, is almost always bacterial.

Tonsillitis is characterized by red, swollen tonsils. White patches may or may not appear on the tonsils. Other signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include a severe sore throat, painful/difficult swallowing, headache, fever and chills, enlarged and tender lymph nodes, pain in the tonsil area, and loss of voice.

Bacterial tonsillitis may be caused by Group A streptococcal bacteria, resulting in strep throat. Viral tonsillitis may be caused by numerous viruses such as the Epstein-Barr virus (the cause of infectious mononucleosis) or the Adenovirus.

Sometimes, tonsillitis is caused by a superinfection of spirochaeta and treponema, in this case called Vincent's angina or Plaut-Vincent angina.

Treatments of tonsillitis consist of pain management medications and lozenges. If the tonsillitis is caused by bacteria, then antibiotics are prescribed. Penicillin is the most commonly used antibiotic. Erythromycin is used for patients allergic to penicillin.

In many cases of tonsillitis, the pain caused by the inflamed tonsils warrants the prescription of topical anesthetics for temporary relief. Viscous lidocaine solutions are often prescribed for this purpose.

Ibuprofen or other analgesic can help to decrease the edema and inflammation which will ease the pain and allow the patient to swallow liquids sooner.

When tonsillitis is caused by a virus, the length of illness depends on which virus is involved. Usually, a complete recovery is made within one week, however some rare infections may last for up to two weeks.

Chronic cases may indicate tonsillectomy (surgical removal of tonsils) as a choice for treatment. Additionally, gargling with a solution of warm water and salt may reduce pain and swelling

An abscess may develop lateral to the tonsil during an infection, typically several days after the onset of tonsillitis. This is termed a peritonsillar abscess (or quinsy). Rarely, the infection may spread beyond the tonsil resulting in inflammation and infection of the internal jugular vein giving rise to a spreading septicaemia infection (Lemierre's syndrome).

In chronic/recurrent cases (generally defined as seven episodes of tonsillitis in the preceding year, five episodes in each of the preceding two years or three episodes in each of the preceding three years), or in acute cases where the palatine tonsils become so swollen that swallowing is impaired, a tonsillectomy can be performed to remove the tonsils. Patients whose tonsils have been removed are certainly still protected from infection by the rest of their immune system.

Bacteria feeding on mucus which accumulates in pits (referred to as 'crypts') in the tonsils, produce whitish-yellow deposits known as tonsilloliths. These "tonsil stones" emit a very pungent odour due to the presence of volatile sulphur compounds.

Tonsilloliths which occur in the crypts of the tonsils can only be completely cured by tonsillectomy or by resurfacing the tonsil by laser, but practicing good oral hygiene and use of a water pick may help lessen the symptoms.

Hypertrophy of the tonsils can result in snoring, mouth breathing, disturbed sleep, and obstructive sleep apnea, during which the patient stops breathing and experiences a drop in the oxygen content in the bloodstream. A tonsillectomy can be curative.

In very rare cases, diseases like rheumatic fever or glomerulonephritis can occur. These complications are extremely rare in developed nations but remain a significant problem in poorer nations.

See? We only know so little about tonsillitis, there are many times in our lives that we have just neglected it, I'm just happy now that I did the check'up to the doc on my baby and now I feel comfortable shes having her medication.

Kung Hei Fat Choi

I just got home from my work and it is another time for my PC, I have decided to write about the discussion that I had lately at work. It was about the Year of The Rat. Two of my friends were talking in front of me, they were talking about this year, and the first person asked the other on what year it is, the other person then replied that it is the Year of the Rat.

As they were talking, the first person then asked about when did the year of the Rat started, the other one replied that it was on January 1. I then joined the discussion and softly asked him, why January 1? He told me it’s because “2008” is the year of the rat. I told both of them; the year of the Rat started just two days ago and that is February 6, 2008. And that is the mark of another year in the Chinese calendar. The two guys were very hesitant to believe, the other argued that how come 2008 is called the year of the Rat?

I explained to them that the year of the Chinese Calendar is not based on the calendar that we are using. The Chinese calendar’s New Year for 2008 is on February 6, 2008 and that represents the coming of another year, which is the Year of the Rat, farewell to the year of the Boar.

I have this link below that represents the Table of the sixty year calendar to back’up my claim.

Yet still the other guy was reluctant in believing me, I said well, it’s all up to you. Its really disappointing how people react to information, I don’t know if its lack of knowledge or just plain ignorance. The information was right there in that moment and yet there is just this type of people who refuse to grow.

Well, the year of the Rat represents in renewal since it is the beginning of the twelve-year sequence. It is a time for change, hard work and activity. This year would be a good time to start an endeavor, making new friends, a business perhaps, a new job, or get married, or anything something new.

Thats it for now and Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Earn from Blogging - A fresh look

Information technology that is right in your bedroom. Your computer is your gateway to the world. It is a limitless access to different ideas, products, solutions, etc. The web has now become a new world. Like two dimensions that co-exists, the real life and the i-life (internet).

In my real world I am an artist for food, I work as a sushi chef in a hotel here in my place, Cebu City, I work at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel on the outlet of MIZU. During my spare time and during my times spent at home, I become a different individual. My quest is to achieve or shall I say exploit the information gateway's potentials.

Not many people know, the Internet could be a source of income as well, aside from getting into contact with your friends and relatives, there are many ways to manipulate the web.

One I am particularly in to is “Blogging”, its words are not even in the dictionary yet, but here is its meaning. A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Blogs are your online diaries. In your blog you could talk about yourself, other people, places, events, and much many many more. Thru this you could be able to express yourself and voice out your own opinion for a certain topic, and as well as listen to other opinions of people reading your blog thru their comments. In blogging, one should have this enthusiasm for writing; it’s not an overnight task but rather continues throughout your lifetime. Write, write, and write, that’s what it is all about. And that is what I’m doing right now.

As I have mentioned, blogging as your source of income. How is that so? Well, there are many ways to earn thru your blog. The most common is the Pay Per Click advertisements.

Pay per click is a method of advertisement wherein you post ads on your blog and if somebody reading your blog clicks on it and views the advertisement you get a corresponding point per click. And did I mention in DOLLARS? Yes, indeed, payouts are in dollars paid in check, fund transfer, or money transfer using courier services such as Western Union.

So, what can you say? Want to start blogging? Just post a comment if you have any questions about blogging, and I’m sure I have lots to share with you. What are you waiting for? Blog now!!!

My Blogs

Hi, firstoff, im Francis Daniel Maning, im a newbie in blogging.
Here is one of the blogs that I made

iStayl Sugbo blogspot is a web blog created by me and my friend deofrey vistal of postmortem. Together we have designed this website to cater to the cebuano people, our goal is to create a community online and be able to share ideas and stuff and features of the Cebu island.

iStayl Sugbo will be the gateway for events, gatherings, and aswell as a crossroads for discussions for the hot issues at hand in Cebu.

Cebu, is a fast growing city in the Philippines, you can see and feel its growth as it unfolds in your very eye. Resto bars have been shooting up, restaurants, hotels, and many more.

The city is so alive, yet maintaining its tourist friendly atmostsphere. Thats no wonder we could see lots of foreign people around the streets now-a-days compared way back the 90's. These foreign individuals have contribute mostly possitive impacts to the bisaya community. Their expenditures here in Cebu provides establishments with income thus generating employment to the locals.
