SMS Political joke

# "The Filipinos are worth dying for." - Ninoy Aquino
# "The Filipinos are worth living for." - Cory Aquino
# "The Filipinos are worth dining for." - Gloria Arroyo

Random Points:

* Gloria said, "God put me here." Amado Macasaet said, "No, Garci did."
* I couldn't agree more with Malaya EIC Amado Macasaet when he opined that the nation lost with GMA's "victory" in 2004.
* Due to lack of shelter security, many Filipinos have to struggle by renting a "kwartito." A kwartito is a mini-room that can only accommodate a bed and a small dining table. I've experienced it myself. It's P800 in 1998 if my memory serves me right.
* "Heavy multitaskers are lousy at multitasking," according to Stanford communications professor Clifford Nass.

Wellness Bandwagon?

* A coffee brand offers a new set of what it calls 'Pro-Health' variants namely Pro-fiber (with Inulin fiber), Pro-power (with ginkgo biloba), Pro-beauty (with collagen) and Pro-slim (with L-carnitine).

* Another more established coffee brand has its own 'Body Partner' selection namely Protect (more antioxidant), Fit (helps in weight management), Relax (with chamomile extract) and Lingzhi (with ganoderma extract).

* An international college in Taguig offers a certificate course in wellness (and yes, believe it or not, pageantry)

* A fastfood chain now serves breakfast oats.
