CRISTINA T. SANTOS, USRN !

July 30, 2008. Lunch time. I received a text message from my brother that he already received the results of my wife’s NCLEX-RN from ordinary post delivered at my parents’ place in Pasig. I immediately called him and with asked him to describe the envelop as per Tina’s request. Because we know that according to others if the envelop is thick and large, the result would be negative for another re-application form & guideline will be inside but what my brother received is a legal/regular-sized envelop from Sacramento California. Tina told me to ask Mac, my bro to open the envelop and read the result, and the rest is HISTORY…

SHE MADE IT. I’M PROUD OF YOU HONEY. ALL YOUR EFFORTS PAID OFF. Thank you for listening to my nagging pieces of advice for I know that it is only you who can withstand my TOXICITY… 

God is truly BEST. The results came out on the day of the inauguration of ALLGEN the Intelligent Review where Tina had her review for NCLEX-RN.

We thank the LORD JESUS for giving this wonderful blessing for all we know this will open doors for both of us and our son Gabby. 

Thank you ALLGEN team for everything. I take pride in being a part of the BEST REVIEW CENTER for NCLEX-RN ! May God bless us more for us to continue to be a blessing for others too.

Here are some snapshots taken at the blessings of ALLGEN this afternoon. Visit www.allgen.net.

CELEBRATING (wild) LIFE !


ARK AVILON ZOO & FUN RANCH in Fun Ranch En Frontera Verde along E.Rodriguez Jr. Ave in Ugong Pasig are just near our places (Pasig & Quezon Cities) but it was only yesterday when we decided to go there around 3pm… I told my wife Tina and my son Gabby that I have seen those places featured on different local TV shows and read some things about them on various blogs.  Inspite of the fact that there was 1 blog item about the experience of a father whose daughter was bitten by the albino king snake during the guest-animal interactions, last January of this year, with sympathies to the untoward incident and to the family concerned, I’m sure that none would have wanted it to happen and there are still enough reasons for me to bring my own family there to experience what the others have already enjoyed. And so we did. (We’re NOT interested in snakes anyway…)

The facade will bring to your senses a feeling of how is it like to be entering Noah’s Ark… Plus the fact of having a zoo shaped like Noah’s ark amidst the metropolis isn’t a usual attraction.  Entrance fee of P200/pax is reasonable, credit cards are honored.  It was good that it was a weekday, so the place was not that crowded and we had quality time enjoying the animals. Ark Avilon Zoo is an interactive zoo (just like Kinder Zoo in Manila Zoo) where guests, mostly children can touch some tamed animals and experienced them as good as it gets.

Gabby had fed the rabbits (lots of them!) with carrots on sticks sold at P10 per carrot. We had a chance to take photos with a pair of 6-month-old sheepdogs named Arthur and Philip (P50/4 shots). Viewed various animals from family of cats in glassed cages : pumas, tigers, lion, jaguars; to Philippine macaque, bears, malayan tapir, tortoisses, goats, a donkey, an albino miniature horse and wide collection of birds – parrots, Palawan Hornbill, Victoria crowned Pigeons, Channel billed toucans, Rufous night Herons, domestic turkeys,and owls.

But what we enjoyed the most was Jenny, the orangutan. She’s so adorable, clad in a dress with slippers. She entertained us well, even allowed to be carried, embraced and shook hands with.

Given another chance to be there, we would not hesitate to visit Ark Avilon Zoo again. I think it brings wildlife closer to kids and kids at heart. I like their tag line… Celebrating (wild) Life !  we have to, to the fullest, for life is short.. so enjoy it, even with animals..

pre-post exam prayers and my adapted mantra on preparation…

I AND MY WIFE WENT TO ST. JUDE CHURCH IN MANILA THIS MORNING AND WHILE PASSING THROUGH THE PARISH OFFICE WE CAME ACROSS LAMINATED PRAYER CARDS OF WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE TO MY REVIEWEES, STUDENTS AND TO MY READERS HERE…

I AM ALSO POSTING THE MANTRA I ADAPTED FROM EMILE COUE WHICH I FOUND SO POWERFUL IN BRING OUT THE OPTIMISM AND HOPE TO PREPARATION TO ANY ENDEAVOR. READ ON….

PRAYER BEFORE EXAMS.

DEAR JESUS, TODAY I WILL HAVE MY EXAMINATIONS.

YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE TO ME, SO I AM HUMBLY ASKING YOUR GRACIOUS HELP AND DIVINE ASSISTANCE I PRAY TO YOU MY DEAR JESUS, PLEASE NEVER LET ME PANIC, NOR GET NERVOUS, JUST LET ME BE AT EASE. AND GIVE MY VERY BEST.

PLEASE NEVER LET ME GUESS NOR RELY ON PURE LUCK, BUT ENLIGHTEN MY MIND AND LET ME THINK CLEARLY. PLEASE NEVER LET ME RESORT TO CHANCES NOR TO DISHONESTY, BUT LET ME WORK TO THE FULLEST OF MY ABILITY.

I PRAY FOR YOUR GUIDANCE THAT AS I THINK, I MAY FIND THE RIGHT SOLUTIONS, I MAY BE ABLE TO CORRECTLY ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, I MAY SOLVE THOSE DIFFICULT PROBLEMS.

I ASK LORD, O LORD, YOUR INTERCESSION, THAT I WRITE, I MAY NOT BE CARELESS NOR OVERCONFIDENT, I MAY NOT BE DISTRACTED BUT BE MORE CONCENTRATED, I MAY NOT BE IN A HURRY NOR TAKE THE EXAMS TOO LIGHTLY. TODAY, O MY JESUS, I WILL TAKE MY EXAMINATIONS.

LET ME, WITH YOUR HELP, GIVE MY BEST EFFORT. LET ME, BECAUSE OF YOU, RECEIVE THE BEST AND FRUITFUL RESULTS. AMEN.

PRAYER AFTER EXAMS.

THANK YOU LORD FOR ENLIGHTENING MY MIND

DURING THE EXAMINATON. WHEN I WAS HANDED THE EXAM SHEETS, I WAS SHAKING, I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO WRITE.

BUT YOU GAVE ME THE LIGHT I NEEDED TO REMEMBER WHAT AT FIRST I THOUGHT I DID NOT KNOW. I GIVE YOU INFINITE THANKS. THANK YOU LORD I DO NOT DESERVE THIS PEACE OF MIND;

BUT ALL THE SAME, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KNOW THE ANSWERS FOR LETTING ME DO WELL.

AMEN.
