Barrio Siete’s Bayanihan Fund Drive

September 28, 2009

Barrio Bayanihan

Bloggers from Barrio Siete unite to provide assistance to our fellow Filipinos who were greatly affected by tropical storm Ondoy.

Please see the excerpt below from the B7 entry on how you can provide help too:

My fellow bloggers, readers and lurkers; it breaks our heart seeing all these images and watching the videos coming from Manila – the wrath and devastation not only to properties but also to the lives of our fellow Filipinos. Tropical typhoon Ondoy is not only creating havoc but also bringing epic floods in the Metropolitan Manila area.

In the spirit of Barrio Siete, I invite you all to join our Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims. Very simply:

1.) Make a donation to our Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims. If you can’t, then help us by making this viral and create an entry entitled: “Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims“. A link to this original entry will be appreciated where your readers can make a donation. Please leave us a note in the comment section if you are joining so we can list your entry, in case the pingback doesn’t work.

2.) Invite other bloggers to join our “Bayanihan Fund Drive: Donate to Ondoy Flood Victims”

3.) We will list the names of the donors in a worksheet, their organization and/or their websites, unless they prefer to be anonymous.

4.) The listing will be updated regularly and will be posted here in Barrio Siete Dot com.

5.) We are only accepting monetary donations in currencies accepted by Paypal.

6.) All donations will be remitted only to the Philippine National Red Cross in Manila. (We have not made any contact with them yet.)

7.) If you prefer: You can make donations directly to the Philippine National Red Cross. Here is the link: Ways to donate

In Barrio Siete, this is where you can make your donation. We will in turn, turn this over to the Philippine National Red Cross.

8.) Reyna Elena’s entry on Ondoy here is getting a lot of messages from readers asking for help and assistance. If you are reading this, please head over to that entry and respond to some of the questions if you know because it kills me that I don’t know the answer to their questions or their plea for help. Hopefully, there is one here who could help.

I hope the politicians, especially those who are joining the 2010 race for Presidency, will set aside their personal agendas and help with sincerity. This is not a time for campaigning! This is a time for action.

66th monthsary – Dengue and the Medical City experience

September 24, 2009

Last Sept 19-22, my girlfriend got admitted at the Medical City in Ortigas due to dengue. I got really nervous when I’ve heard she was diagnosed with that illness since dengue has no vaccine or direct cure for it. Basically, prevention and early detection plus hydration is the key. Good thing I was able to ask my cousin’s friend if I were to accompany my girlfriend back to the hospital since we’ve observed that her fever was on and off. The doctor then asked her to be admitted since she wasn’t able to eat well and was feeling a bit nauseated. It was great that she was able to recover (platelet count drops to a really low level then once it goes up then that’s the sign that you are getting better from the illness) in just a span of three days – she’s got a good immune system and a great fighting spirit.

Below are some good stuff that we’ve experienced from the Medical City (well I guess this is what you get for a quite expensive hospital. haha):

  • The medical staff (doctors, nurses, medical technicians, etc) were really kind and accommodating.
  • The hospital’s lobby didn’t have much of that “hospital feel”. You’ll feel like you’re in a mall because of how the lobby was setup.
  • The hospital’s staff (guards, admin staff, etc.) were also great in terms of customer service.
  • Admission and discharge process (includes paying for the bill) was a breeze. I didn’t have to wait in a long line.

Post 1: blogging mode starts

October 10, 2008

Haven’t really decided yet on what topic would I blog about so please bear with the randomness of the posts that may follow. Also please bear the possible errors in grammar (i’m not an expert when it comes to the english language’s structure) and syntax. Such errors could be attributed to either of the following circumstances:

  • I may be under the influence of alcohol while posting an entry.
  • I may be really sleepy and just trying to let time pass (I sometimes work from 11pm to 8am – NA Shift as a Jr. SAP Basis Consultant).
  • I don’t have my full attention in doing the post.
  • I did the errors on purpose.

This ends my first post. I hope I can work on Post 2 soon. Happy reading!
