Odd Job: Professional Cuddler

I have seen a lot of unusual or odd jobs like smelling armpits to test deodorants done by some people but this Professional Cuddler job is unique and can bizarre as well!

Meet Jackie Samuel, a 29-year old professional cuddler who can earn $260 a day by cuddling strangers. She can snuggle 30 men in a week and that includes men whose wives passed away, war veterans, problematic in relationships or just need to have someone to be snuggled. Her $60 an hour charge can make her survive the day-to-day living , for her studies and for her son. She even established the The Snuggery, snuggling service in Rochester, New York.

A lot of people find her job odd or bizarre and some even called her a prostitute.  Ahhh.. there are really strange people in the world. Would you hire a professional cuddler just in case you feel lonely or don't have someone to hug or snuggle you?

Marina Krim, New York City mom, Shaken as Nanny accused of stabbing kids to death

A friend of my tweeted about this story and wow, I was shocked and had goosebumps when I read about this news. Marina Krim, a New York City mom came home from her daughter Nessi's swimming lesson and was shocked to see that her 2 children was stabbed to death by their nanny. OMG!

The nanny named Yoselyn Ortega, who is a Dominican Republic national stabbed Marina and Kevin's children: Leo 2yrs old and Lucia 6 while. The nanny was also injured and lay beside the children and police believed that it is a suicide attempt. The incident remains a mystery but for sure investigation will be done to know the real reason why the nanny made this Marina and Kevin's children.

My heart goes to the parents of the 2 children and I just hope no similar incident will happen again for it's a nightmare for parents to know that their children's caregiver will do that horrible thing.

13-Year Old Filipino Kid Wins International Children’s Peace Prize 2012

Our country, Philippines was so proud of Cris “Kesz” Valdez for he won the prestigious International Children’s Peace Prize 2012 on Sept. 20, 2012. Only at 13 years old, Kesz is determined to educate children who are living on the streets about personal hygiene and he even takes care of their wounds. He has given them inspiration and hope. I am sure that when he grows older, he'd continue to do good deed on his community.Good job Kesz !

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

Philippines is blessed with beautiful beaches but unfortunately, people is the one making it dirty by throwing or leaving garbage in the area. We need to be responsible enough to take care of our waste not just in beach or tourist spots area but within our homes too.

Now, that we experienced flooding in many areas because storms and even monsoon rains, we need to think twice when we throw our garbage just anywhere because it will practically come back to us in no time.

This is a campaign by :

Footprints Project ( where they envisions the Philippines with a healthy, sustainable and successful tourism enjoyed, promoted, and guarded by a people who are environmentally conscious, friendly, and responsible.

The Mad Man that Shocked the World


Image: screenshot from yahoo news

These are the photos of James Eagan Holmes, 24, the suspect in the Colorado shooting rampage when he 1st publicly appeared in court. How can anyone in his right mind shoot people in the cinema who are just watching the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises to have fun? He is clearly a mass murderer and psychotic with the behavior he has shown.

He has killed12 people and other 59 or so are hurt and still in the hospital. This is a very chilling incident that happened in Colorado USA and I just pray for the victims. I hope justice will be served and he be put into jail for like or if not in a death chamber. No individual should suffer on the things that he did.

Kony 2012

This mini-film has been circulating in Facebook and twitter and I thought of sharing this here at my blog. We can make a difference by sharing this to the world and end JOSEPH KONY's criminsal works.
Joseph Kony is one of the world’s worst war criminals and I support the international effort to arrest him, disarm the lRa and bring the child soldiers home.

Watch this video to learn more about KONY 2012 and Invisible Children.


I admired the goal of Kony 2012 campaign for it wants the world to unite to see JOSEPH KONY arrested and prosecuted for his crimes against humanity. I hope he'll be put into jail.

Be a Responsible Driver

Have you heard the shocking news lately when a woman and her 3 year old daughter that was run over by a big bus in EDSA? The mother survived but her right arm was amputated but her daughter was so unfortunate because it died on the spot. This is so heartbreaking and it was even caught in the CCTV camera. Though it is an accident, the driver should have been alert and responsible for he has done. I guess the driver is in jail right now.

I also would like to remind those vehicle owners who really have no conscience while parking on the no parking zone. I wish the motorhome towing will caught them and be fined for doing that. Some drivers just park and not minding that they are obstructing others and sometimes cause traffic.

Former Phil. President Corazon (Cory) Aquino Fighting for Her Life

Wow it was really a sad news to hear this on the news. Former Pres. Corazon (Cory) Aquino is fighting for her life. She is battling stage four colon cancer and now all her friends, relatives and family are deeply praying for her. Mass are held in different churches dedicated to her speedy recovery.

It was also very unusual to see Kris Aquino not being vibrant when she hosts last Sunday's show "The Buzz". The family is not sharing more details about Cory as they want to keep it private. Let us just hope that she will recover.
