NATO, Politics and Economy

I didn't realise that working as an English teacher can also involve being aware of current events issues. These days I have been having lessons with a NATO administrative employee who might be bound to work in the NATO office in Munich Germany. He usually prefers to practice his english communication skills so we get to discuss topics relevant to his imminent job transfer. In particular he is involved in processing industrial contracts for the manufacture or production of NATO's recent two fighter planes project European Fighter Aircraft (Eurofighter 2000) and the other older model Tornado.He was kind enough to give me documents relative to this project, in which I'm also very interested . I have been learning interesting things about this particular project especially how the share distribution and funds allocation are subdivided between the member countries, the logistics, the contrast of specs of the two projects and an infinity of other interesting information.
On the other hand, I have the same situation with this professional economist student of mine who usually prefers to discuss political and economic topics, and so I have to make efforts in keeping myself informed of the current event issues particularly in the European territories or Italy. Among other things we get to discuss the ongoing media (print and broadcast) revolution wherein the public interaction and participation are involved. As it is, it's not easy to find the time for all the things I should do. Like taking care of domestic chores, groceries, cleaning, ironing clothes, taking care of my child and my husband's needs, cooking washing the dishes etc. Add to this preparing lessons, surfing the internet for things that aid me in my work. I barely have time to call and chat with my friends. Nevertheless I am very grateful to my GOD because I am Aware that it was HE who has put me in this blessed position, a job I consider perfect for me, in every aspect. I PRAISE MY GOD for all the blessings HE keeps pouring into our lives.TO GOD BE THE GLORY! AMEN.

We attended the celebration of Philippine Independence Day last June 12, at Manila Square here in Rome, and we enjoyed so much not only all the typical Filipino delicacies (mostly for free, just like in a town 'Fiesta'), but also the company of all the filipinos in that highly festive occasion where the TFC channel also held a show hosted by Pokwang and Randy Santiago.But we weren't able to watch anymore as we left before their arrival, late in the afternoon.We didn't want to expose our little daughter to too much sun. But it was the first time we attended the Philippine Independence Day here in Rome. It was also funny to see some foreigners, muslim-looking and also Italians appreciating our festivities and our food. There were many different booths set-up to promote varied services like Filipino real estate companies,Filipino Banking institutions, legal assistance, food stands etc. There was also the 'halo-halo' under the heat of the sun--:The most surprisin…

Cross At The Center of The Universe

This is the actual image at the very center of our universe,found at the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) Not long ago, a certain very young Pastor Louise who himself also, is a NASA/space enthusiast- preached in Spain about the incomprehensible enormity of our universe. It was a very eloquent message,very well explained and accompanied by his own actual visual collections from NASA. He articulately (however hard he tried to..) showed the vastness of GOD (more than that, the vastness of GOD's Love for us) . ...consider, at 60,000 or 70,000 ft. above the sealevel, all structures on earth's surface would hardly be visible through the naked eye, lowfast lamborghinis or ferraris, jetplanes,villas and mansions, the most luxurious malls and most importantly-people would seem inexistent. If you travel farther,beyond our own solar system or even outside our Milky Way galaxy, the Earth would seem to be only a dot.And men, you or me would be insignificant(or seemingly inexistent) size…


We celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary yesterday at Hard Rock Cafe' at the Rome tourist belt area.Of course Italy is known for its delightful and fat-free cuisine but due to budget constraints we opted not for a fine dining.But the entire day was blessed with cheers and simple fatty dishes by Hard Rock but nevertheless served with kindness and sweetness by the young and handsome waiter.That is also good enough to make up for what might still be lacking to call it a memorable wedding anniversary.We were with my girlfriend Lala with whom I was teasing Alessandro our waiter just for fun.We finished our dinner with yet another greasy dessert hot fudge brownies.After that,we proceeded with some photoshoot outside the restaurant.As the American embassy is just a stone's throw away from Hard Rock, I also had my photo taken with it in the background.Well there's one more reason to Praise My GOD today.
