An Early Christmas Gift - Asus Eee PC


Last two weeks ago, I've received a gift came from a friend in the states that I have known only from chating online. At first, I thought he was only kidding that he'll send me a netbook so that I can work anytime and anywhere I go. It's because one time I mention I'm doing som e online work and blogging on my spare time. He said it's a gift in return for the help I extended to his Filipina friend Ricca. I never expected extending such help, I would have a netbook on my lap, he gave me an Asus Eee PC. I just assisted her friend with some IT tips, a little installation and fix something with her laptop .





I'm sharing this to my readers so that I can share the lesson I've learned from this. If you help someone without expecting in return you'll be rewarded in least expected. It may not be right away or may be not coming from the same person,but the Lord will return it to you or may be more that you expected. With that I live you with a verse from the scripture:
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
"What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?"
He answered: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself."
"You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live. But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'
"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"
The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."
I think what this scriptures is trying to point out is “If you help someone, it should be pure, and you'll be rewarded by the Lord accordingly.” Thanks to Micheal and Ricca for the advance Christmas gift. God Bless.

Walking in Barefootwear

I always keep a set of sleepers under my office table. I wear them in replace of my work shoes. Because I always travel to work for almost 2-3hrs from Dasmariñas  to Makati  and it always make my feet soars. Then a friend emailed me about this exciting product from VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS®She asked me:"Have you ever tried wearing something on your feet, that is so comfortable that feels that you're wearing nothing all?" and gave me this site: http://www.barefootwearinc.com.


According to her the benefits are:

"The Benefits of Being Barefoot by Vibrams Five Finger"



We have all been born barefoot.  A long time ago, people have lived and survived without using protective footwear.   But, today, because of technology and the many changes it brought, wearing shoes became an essential part of life. But beyond all the protection and the style shoes provide, we seem to have forgotten the significant benefits and sense of freedom being barefoot brings.

Doing activities barefoot brings a lot of advantages to the body’s flexibility and mobility. It allows people to exercise, stretch, relax, and strengthen muscles they normally don’t get to use when wearing shoes. Barefoot running also corrects the way people run—making them land on the balls of their feet—as compared to wearing rubber shoes which gives the tendency to land on the heels first. Landing on the heels of the feet releases more pressure and shock to legs and knees. Doing things barefoot also improves range of motion in ankles, feet, and toes because of movements that are more natural and free. It also heightens body awareness since the body has the sense of being freer than being shod. Balance and motion agility are also developed because doing things barefoot further stimulates the neurons and nerves that are essential to lower body movement. And because there are no heels to torture the foot heel and the ankle, it enhances natural posture and the alignment of the spine. And, most especially, it is much easier to relax and stretch after a workout if someone is barefoot.
Indeed, undertaking activities barefoot has a lot of benefits and advantages for the body. However, the feet—most especially those of the more active people—need to be protected from the many possibilities of injury. That is why some footwear are developed to mimic the feel and freedom of being barefoot. A good example would be the Vibram Five Fingers which is a proof that many people prefer to do things barefoot. With a slot for each of the toes, it actually gives all the freedom and feel of wearing no shoes on.
Many other innovations in footwear have been introduced into the market to make our feet as comfortable and relaxed as if barefoot. It is because it takes no genius to agree that—aside from the benefits of going barefoot—the feet has taken the humans a long long way and they deserve a break and the freedom.
Then she asked me to visit the store located at:

The Vibram Five Fingers store is located at Level R1 Bridgeway in PowerPlant Mall, Rockwell. For inquiries, call (02) 513-1449 or e-mail marketing@barefootwearinc.com. You could also visit the official website at www.barefootwearinc.com
