National Telecommunications Commission denied the clamor of the consumers on taking the expiration for prepaid cellphone loads. When I saw the news on the television about it, I felt insulted by the explanation of the NTC officer saying that the disapproval of the claim is for the welfare of the consumers because it may raise the price of prepaid cellphone loads. Do you think this reason is logical enough?Anyways, I am writing this comment about the issue because in the first place if the cellphone load will have no expiration then the cellphone networks will have lesser sales on load. If a person is so thrifty and makes use of his or her cellphone balance for important instances then it should be better, then their balance will be wasted without having it used. It would be better for the NTC officer to provide the real reason than to say something which is a slap in the face to someone who has an idea about economics.

On the other hand, it would be better for the cellphone balance to have the expiration date because for the users, they will play a big role in the growth of our economy. It’s just so unfair in the part of consumers who would want to maximize their own cellphone balance most especially if that’s the only budget they have allocated for cellphone load.Share your thoughts…


Touch Me Not. This is a type of flower that has a small fruit that pops once you touch it. When I was a kid, I have always wanted to pick some of this plant’s fruits and enjoy when it pops. I even try to force pre-matured fruits to pop. While growing older, I came to realize that thinking deeper about the plant will let us realize something.Looking at what our current justice system in the country, we can’t avoid thinking that we still have the “under-the-table” practice despite of the righteous path that our president is trying to implement. I already thought about writing something really sensitive about our place’s political and justice system. There’s nothing really especial or new about our place’s issue or situation, and I really doubt if I will write about it because it may become a very personal issue.

I will not be naming anyone or even the place but what I am writing is the current practice in that place. When it comes to politics, our place has a very silent but very dumb politics because the people don’t think about the future but think about influence and powers today. Voters prefer to vote or support someone who has money rather than the one who really can do the job. Is this the type of politics we would want the next generation to inherit?

I also want to talk about how they deal with cases filed in the barangay. There was a case filed in their jurisdiction but prejudice occurred and since they were not able to resolve the issue, one party wanted to elevate the case but the chairman didn’t want to give the consent. Most often than not, once any of the officials will contradict the process created by their chair, all the rest of the officials will warn or worst send that person home instead of doing their job.Touch me not. This is because of the protection because of money and power. For you to have fair justice you should have a bank and a backer. This 2013, is this the type of politics we want for our barangay? Is this the type of leaders we want to rule in the community we consider as our home? Is this the future we want to store for our children? If we will corrupt everything today, will these be enough to support our living ‘till we get old or ‘till the nest rulers? If we will corrupt everything today, what will we expect our kids to have in the future?

Politics and life is not about just money, fame and power but responsibility and righteousness. Webster’s definition about righteousness, ethical, or moral may not be the same as our definition but we have enough set of rules and regulations to help moderate our actions. It may be impossible, once again to change this but once we have the initiative and courage to do it, then surely we can decrease it.Let’s start a step by step change on the 2013 election. Let’s stop sticking to politicians who stayed in position for so long but had not done anything for a change.

Why Chelsea boots aren't THAT original (& even my Dad's got a pair)

To be honest, my Dad's probably always had a pair. Or two. And so has my Mum. And my sister. And at least half of my family's friends. I used to have a pair when I lived at home. That might sound totally crazy to you, because Chelsea boots came to Topshop a year ago? Maybe two? And my parents definitely don't shop there, nor would they ever want to enter that shop (partially because the only one in Czech Republic is 2.5 hours drive away from where we live). So how the hell has my family always been obsessed with Chelsea boots when they were basically non-existant 2+ years ago? Look at the picture below - what do you see - is that a Chelsea boot?

Topshop is one of the 'flag' stores, where you can buy the 'dream' Chelsea boots for anything from £40 to £150+ per pair, which I find pretty damn steep! Don't get me wrong, I think Chelsea boots are one of the best shoe inventions, finally an ankle boot which doesn't look like a granny shoe (talkin about you brogues!) which I can walk in for a decent amount of time without murdering my feet. That's why I've got cheap dupes from places like H&M, Internacionale, Select and that sort. They are good, I have to say pretty good for the price (around £20), but they do tend to fall apart after one season. The other day I was browsing through some equestrian stores online and realized one thing I should have realized at least a year ago! Why do I have such an inclination to Chelsea boots? Because I'm a horse girl, and because every friggin horse girl surely realized it by now - these super duper fancy Topshop shoesies woesies are nothing else, than, wait for it - riding jodhpur ankle boots! Yeh, not even lying - look at the proof below.  

And what is it that drives me insane? That if you go and buy jodhpur boots from an equestrian shop, you can bet on an excellent quality (people ride horses in them, they just cannot fall apart after a walk in the city centre), they are usually waterproof (yeh, my Select dupes turned out to become less waterproof than you'd have guessed, just after a few days of wearing them - read unstuck glue), sometimes they even have fleece or fur inserts to keep you warm and what's the most striking part - they are about half price compared to the Topshop Chelsea boots. See the first pair in the picture above? That's £36 for a fur lining waterproof artificial leather pair of riding boots (aka Chelsea boots). I have to admire Topshop for the brilliant idea of taking the inspiration from the ol' riding jodhpur boots and bringing them into spotlight of today's fashion, but c'mon - for that price when it's not even the real this

Are you a fan of Chelsea boots?

Black and White Twins Turn Seven

It can usually be difficult to tell twins apart - but not this pair. These beautiful twins share the same cheeky smile but Kian Hodgson's skin is dark and she has black hair while her sister Remee is blonde with pale skin.

The twins, who were born within a minute of each other, owe their different appearances to a one in a million combination of their parents' genes. Their mum Kylee Hodgson and dad Remi Horder both have white mothers and black fathers....

Their mother Kylee Hodgson, 25, says: "When they were born it seemed hard to believe that they were twins as they looked so different.

"I had expected that as they grew older that they may grow more similar and the difference between them would become less obvious But if anything, their skin color is even more striking now.

 The amazing conception happened after two eggs were fertilised at the same time in their mother Kylee's womb (as in all non-identical twins_.

The couple, who have since separated, were both stunned when they discovered Kylee was pregnant with twins. But when the twins were born in April 2005 by Caesarean, Kylee had an even bigger shock. Remee arrived first, weighing 5lb 5oz, then followed a minute later by Kian, weighing 6lb.

Kylee says: "I didn't see them at first. They were both whisked away to be checked over and then the midwife came back and placed them both in my arms. I noticed that both of them had beautiful blue eyes, but whilst Remee's hair was a blonde colour, Kian's was black and she had darker skin.

"It seemed strange, but I was feeling so ill from the Caesarean that I didn't really take it in at that stage. All that mattered was my precious daughters had arrived safely."

But the following day, Kylee mentioned the colour difference to her mother. "I said to my mother that Remee's skin was a lot lighter, and she told me that it would get darker as she got older.
I had just assumed that both our babies would have the same skin tone as me."

 Remee is still very pale skinned and her hair has stayed a white-blond. Kian's skin has gone even darker than when she was first born. But they never question the difference between them.
The doctors never explained to Kylee why the colour difference occurred.
But according to the Multiple Births Foundation, it can occur if two eggs are fertilised at the same time and one inherits the white genes and the other the black genes.

Jane Denton, from the Foundation added: "It is very rare. But it is possible for one sibling to be black and the other white if they have mixed race parents."

Both the babies were allowed home from hospital after four days and didn't need any treatment.
They then took the world by storm as one of the world's most amazing example of twins born with such a skin colour difference.

But as the years passed, Remee's skin grew lighter, whilst Kian's got darker. And while Remee's eyes stayed blue, Kian's turned brown. They are due to celebrate their seventh birthday in three weeks time.

Despite their colour differences, the girls have an incredibly strong bond between them.
Kylee, a full time mother, who lives in Dudley, West Midlands, says: "The twins have got such difference personalities as well as their skin colour. Remee is laid back whereas Kian is the more confident and outgoing of the pair. They both love dancing and music, but they have different groups of friends."

But despite their differences, the twins have an incredibly close bond. Their proud mum says: "They have never questioned their different skin colour. They know they are twins, but they never ask why they don't look the same. They were born this way, and they have always accepted it.

"They are such a perfect example of how it should be - they are not bothered about their skin colour and how different they look to each other. It isn't important to them - it's about what they are like underneath. They are the best
