     Sleep is among the needs of an individual.  It is very important in one's happiness, as well as, individual's optimal health.  Sleep disturbances are a major health problem.  Many industrial accidents, vehicular accidents, and poor school/job performances are caused by troubled sleep.


1.  Disorders of Initiating & Maintining Sleep (DIMS)
          -  Insomnia is the primary symptom

2.  Disordes of Excessive Somnolence (DOES)
          -  Hypersomnia (sleeping too much) is the main symtptom

3.  Disorders of the Sleep-Wake Schedule
          -  that which includes Jet-lag and work-shift change problems

4.  Dysfunctions Associated with Sleep, Sleep Stages, or Partial Arousals
          -  that which includes nightmares, sleepwalking, sleep-related
                bed wetting


1.  In order for our organs to function well the next day.
          -  systems and organs, when we sleep, are in process of
              detoxification, removing toxic chemicals found in the body.

          9pm-11pm  --  detoxification process in the antibody system
                                    (lymph nodes)
          11pm-1am  --  detoxification process in the liver
           1am-3am   --  detoxification process in the gall
           3am-5am   --  detoxification process in the lungs
           5am-7am   --  detoxification proces in the colon

2.  Sleeping late can disrupt the process of eliminating toxic chemicals.

3.  Exactly 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces more blood.

4.  "The early bird catches worms"  As it was first recorded in John Ray's
       A COLLECTION OF ENGLISH PROVERBS 1670, 1678, that means,
        success comes to those who is well prepared early morning
        as well as who works early in the morning.

A Very Filipino Dish

I really miss this recipe I learned from my mom.  It's just so simple to cook.
Bangus or any (fresh) Fish is the main ingredient in this recipe.

Other ingredients are as follows:
 1 whole Ginger
 1/2  big sized onions
 2 pcs. garlic, crushed
 1 medium sized Amplaya
 1 medium sized Eggplant
 1/4 cup Vinegar
 1/2 cup Water
 1 pinch salt
 1 pc. magic sarap (optional)

Cut fish into desired slices.  Mix salt and a little magic sarap and apply  on the fish placed in porcelain coated skillet.  Add all other ingredients, except ampalaya.  Bring to boil then lower heat.  Simmer for about 10 minutes turning fish once.  Add amplaya during the last 5 minutes of cooking.  Don't overcook the ampalaya so that it won't spoil it's taste.

“Shrimps are best cooked when stir-fried, sautéed, and grilled,” says me.  And yes you read it right!  SHRIMPS can be grilled.  At first I’m in two minds with grilled shrimps.  I haven’t eaten yet I guess, looking back the past recipes mom shared.  But when I try this recipe, I really can say “Shrimps are deliciously great when grilled.”
Well, to prepare this menu, first thing to do is: clean the shrimp by rinsing the shrimps in shells with water.  Remove the hairs.  Next thing is to sprinkle with lemon juice and salt.  Then, Place the shrimps on rack and brush top with melted butter.  Then grill at 246°C for 10 minutes.
 Very healthy and satisfying, isn’t it?  If I were you, better try this low-calorie menu.  Shrimps are quite beneficial for its high protein & iron content.

2003 to be exact, I have written a poem about love that goes like this:

Three simple words I want to hear from you,
Words that can make me happy
And that makes me feel specially loved by you.

Best moments with you
Is not quite enough
 Without your “I LOVE YOU.”
It’s like the world’s out of its essentials,
 Not even a laugh
Like children usually do.

For me, life would tend to lose its meaning
Without words such as “I LOVE YOU”
From someone so special, significant in this world living.

And here I go posting it here.  I just like the idea!  I would love to reply comments  for this one.  Let me know what’s on your mind…..  ;-)
