SHAHAR PEER as a player and -why also me ?

She is a young lady, a tennis player of Israel that I admired most.She will turn 22 years old this coming May 2009. To her young age she's already bringing home more than a million bucks from her playing career. With the height of 5"7" and weighing 60 kilos she's very sexy to my eyesight.According to wikipedia she just turned pro last year 2004 with an asset playing right, two-handed backhand comparing to mostly peoples here are left-handed humans. Tennis world rank she earned was #15 and that was recorded last January 29,2007.

Last week a short news on tv saying she was rejected to play in DUBAI. It did not bothered or surprised me anymore. She is an Israeli.But what about me? I have a first experienced of this word REJECTING.In my SURVIVOR blog there is called EC dropping, a kind of boosts to co-bloggers around the world and in same time adding traffic rank to its blogs. While I'm looking to some blogs to advert my logo , it was last few days ago, I try to advert to one blog which is blog author ,owner was in Dubai. I don't have anything on my mind about it at this moment because I'm only a caregiver here , a filipino citizen that I knew all filipinos has a good time living in that place and mostly are my friends and relatives.In my surprise , the next day I received an email that my request was REJECTED. First word came out to my mind now was WHY? and ALSO ME!!? then laugh.If Dubai will offer same salary here and good treatment like we have here today , I might apply soon if still my age will allow to work in that place. It is very nice and world wonder place that everybody are dreaming to work there sometimes.

A touching image I saw this morning after I opened the yahoo news. It was Tiger woods and his son on the headlines. A very nice images!.I am an avid fan of this man even I don't play golf . I used to watched every tournament they had, just on tv.And here comes the next in line to the throne as the king of golfers around the world. Behind his career he has time to hold his son and show it to the world.A proud father and lucky son that everybody watched wherever they go.

coconut in receiving room

I was born and grown up surrounded by coconut trees and now working here abroad in a country of which don't have or cannot plant a coconut trees. Yesterday I went to my friends place where she was working but they are waiting me outside because we are invited to a breakfast to the next building. I saw this interesting thing the moment we sat down in receiving room. Imagine the smallest size of coconut they displayed in their receiving room.A great smile on my mind and memories re-winded that when coconut harvest season during my early age we used it as a ball if we are playing in a nearby riverside.But here abroad is like a flower on the center table together with all those fruits offered to all guest coming in.I saw a lot of families proud of having coconut like this in their home .They are eating this like a special fruits but in our place we are not eating that ways, I mean we used it for cooking or any other usage .On the way to tourist center in NATANYA you can see a rolling store having most of smaller sizes and people eating it while walking around the area as if they are eating chocolates.Last year also I brought a jumbo size of coconut shell for a present to my employer's children.Something like a flower vase or you can make it as a glass of any liquid or we called it "hungot". When we checked by custom personnel at Bin Gurion airport , they supposed not allowed me to bring it in , they thought I'm from other Asian countries not Filipino caregiver.When they used to hold it accidentally my wet undies that I used to changed and washed during a stop over flight in Singapore falls down.he-he-he-he sorry not intended to do it and I'm not expecting it.Then they told me ..okay.. go!go!Go!...and we laughed together with me on flight was 6 more Filipino's.

year 2009 for RAFAEL NADAL

This year start with Rafael Nadal beating Roger Federer in Australian Open.This is the first ever win of Rafael Nadal and also the first Spaniard player win the Australian open .They are both my favorites but there's should be one winner in every game.A very nice image after they received their trophies but the first part was sad they both cried.It was a tears of joy for Nadal and in contrary to Federer's feeling of losing the games. The game match was more than 4 hours fighting in clay court. A very star studded fight that the whole world watched.They both showed their cleverness in the games and gave their excellent tactics that the crowds satisfied and happy to witness them live in court.
