Stay



My whole life waiting for the right time
To tell you how I feel.
Know I try to tell you that I need you.
Here I am without you.
I feel so lost but what can I do?
'Cause I know this love seems real
But I don't know how to feel.

We say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

Alright, everything is alright
Since you came along
And before you
I had nowhere to run to
Nothing to hold on to
I came so close to giving it up.
And I wonder if you know
How it feels to let you go?

You say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

So you change your mind
And say you're mine.
Don't leave tonight
Stay.

Say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

Stay with me, stay with me,
Stay with me, stay with me,
Stay, stay, stay, stay with me.

Salmonella that is safe to eat

Yesterday, Nestle Philippines released a half page ad in a leading newspaper stating that they are recalling their Maggi Instant Noodles due to traces of salmonella in their chicken and beef flavors. They justified that only a certain batch (lot codes 11020598A1 and 11030598A1) has traces of salmonella in the seasoning but as a safety precaution, they are recalling those flavors.

This only strengthen my abhorrence with instant noodles and the way businessmen promote them as healthy food.

But strangely, they also put in their ad that MAGGI NOODLES IS STILL SAFE TO EAT DESPITE THE SALMONELLA TRACE as long as the correct way to cook them would be observed. Duh! Damn these businessmen!

I am not a food technology expert nor a medical professional but a product known to have salmonella should not be eaten when there are traces of it, aren't they? 

And meanwhile the Food and Drug Administration only acknowledged the recall.

Would a food expert explain to me this weird situation?


YOU SHOULD KNOW-
Salmonella is a bacteria that can be transmitted from water, soil, animal feces, raw eggs, and raw meat. Salmonella infections may affect a person's intestines, typically causing high grade fever, abdominal pain and vomiting.

Because of hunger, yes, most Filipinos would eat them anyway.

Pride and prejudice we are


When the news that Osama bin Laden (OBL) was executed; I say executed because of the revised report from the US government that OBL was unarmed but resisted arrest, by the Americans, I put up a picture of OBL with a caption that says OSAMA HAS BIN LADEN (see above). I published it in my Tumblr account, my Blogspot and made it my profile picture at Facebook.

I was elated at how people reacted to the picture. Some were amazed. Some were not. But majority were not happy because they believed I supported the terrorist- without taking into consideration what I have put in that picture.

This made me realize that people do not really go beyond their biases. For them, no matter what the caption was, their first impression on me was I am an Osama follower. Because I have an OBL picture. And I happily rode with their prejudices out of sheer fun.

One even posted at Facebook- I noticed that you had Laden's pic on your profile. Does that make you a good Muslim? Just to remind you, majority of Islamic world has condemned actions that Laden did. Not to mention "infidels" that you might refer to and still you seem to kinda justify Laden and his side.

Another said- I won't be sharing with you... until you changed your profile pic.

Jane Austen aptly wrote in Pride and Prejudice- The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.

(Most of those who reacted negatively were Americans and Filipinos living in the US.)
