Medical Appointment:Pointers

Health has always been an important issue both on national level and personal,more particularly these days when new viruses and diseases are being discovered.It's becoming a normal procedure for almost everybody (everywhere) to have a regular medical check-up.
Here are some useful pointers one should keep in mind when visiting the doctor for medical check-up.

1. Bring all your medications to your doctor,if you can't physically bring them, you may write them down so as to avoid double prescription or, the event wherein another doctor prescribes you the same generic medicine that you might be already taking.

2. Doctors in this modern era now use electronic medical record but even then, this supposedly high technology can only go as far as the input entered.And these inputs are supplied by the patient,you should inform your doctor of any surgeries you had in the past, or any medical problems you had, or if you're still seeing another physician for another treatment.

3. Most of us, reserve relevant and legitimate curiosities or questions but they somehow get crowded out by other things once we get on with the actual visit.A good doctor will always be available to answer whatever concerns you may have,but even then, you should consider that he/she also has other patients waiting after you, so you'll do well to list down and prioritize your questions so as to be able to maximize your visit. Keep in mind that the doctor himself will eventually ask you medical questions.

4. Bring somebody or a second person with you. Sometimes one can't remember all the important things that need to be done so it helps to have a friend or somebody, remind you.If you can't take down notes during the visit, have this company write them down for you

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.
