Tragic Hostage Taking of Hong Kong Nationals in Manila

In the evening of Aug 24, I watched the live coverage of a hostage crisis in Manila. It’s like what you see in the action movies because you could feel the suspense when the reporter said their experiences there but the big difference is it is really happening and it ended in tragedy. A disgruntled former decorated Police Officer named Rolando del Rosario Mendoza seized a bus with 26 passengers mostly Chinese nationals from Hong Kong during their last day here in the Philippines in his desperate attempt to be reinstated in his job. He thinks that he is wrongly accused of a crime that ended his career in the Police force and resorted to hostage taking to get back his job.
I think what really is horrifying is how the Police force handled the incident. The only thing that triggered the already angry former policeman is when he saw the way the police had arrested his brother and his relatives who were in the vicinity. It is the reason why he snapped and shot and killed his hostages. We could only regret what had happened. I think the Filipino Government should learn from this incident because so many lives could have been saved if the incident could have been handled differently. I even felt pity for the way the authorities had arrested his relative, how much more if they were my kin?

I think it would have been different if the authorities could have at least waited until the negotiations are over before they arrested his brother who was also a policeman. I also hope that someone who have seen the incident on TV and who is authorized to make the call would have called the officer in charge to stop the arrest. I also think that it could have been different if the media was not airing what happened during that time because the hostage taker knows what is happening outside the bus by just watching the TV. I also hope that the policemen in the area could have proper coordination with each other and that they could have the proper operating procedure in handling that kind of incident. So many lives lost I only hope and pray that the Filipino Government will learn from this experience and must make an effort to correct the mistakes that clearly confirm our incompetence.

Nice Bedroom furniture to buy

I think the most important furniture that any woman would really like to have is a comfortable fluffy bed. It is bedroom furniture where you can definitely rest your tired body after a busy day at work. Having a soft comfortable bed is really a delight because it can help you have a long restful sleep. Another kind of bedroom furniture that I really like to have is a dresser with mirror. It is where you can put your entire make up, lotions and other beauty essentials that you will use everyday as well as your basic clothing. I really like dresser with mirrors because it is so efficient and would only takes a small space in your bedroom.

In my younger days I have this old dresser with mirror that my mother have given to me but when I got married I left it there in my parents house mainly because I wanted to buy my own dresser. I liked this dresser that I have posted here because it would only take a small space in our bedroom and it has a classic design. I think this would be expensive because of the wood and it looks durable too. Even if this is expensive I would really buy this.

Surrendered wife

I’ve recently stumbled about surrendered wife on the net. The principles of a surrendered wife is to give up unnecessary control and responsibility, express their needs while also respecting their husband choices, resist the temptation to criticize, belittle or dismiss their husbands & trust their husbands in every aspect of their marriage be from sexual to financial.

I think it is so important that you completely trust your husband because without trust you will always doubt him and even if he meant what he said you will always think that he is lying or something like that. Distrust in a marriage is destruction in a plain sense; no marriage can ever survive with it. That is also the main reason why very few marriages will ever survive when it comes to infidelity. It can be repaired but it takes a lot of work to ever survive that. Trust is the hardest thing to build and the easiest thing to destroy. Trusting him in making decision is also very difficult especially if there are times in your marriage where wives experience failed expectations. In the overall trusting again is difficult to achieve but if you do value your marriage you will try to do it. Trusting will also relieve you of unnecessary burden because you will no longer think of negative thoughts in your marriage.

I think also when you resist the temptation to criticize, belittle or dismiss your husbands they will not be easily tempted with other women who will accept and appreciate them. I think the reason why we fall in love in the first place is when we feel appreciated and that the other person will make us feel good about our self. We sometimes forget that as human we needed to be appreciated and to feel good about our self. A simple complement like you look good, you smell good and I’m so proud to be your wife goes a long way to let them feel good about themselves.
I also notice that when you take control of your marriage, finances and responsibilities it can be very burdensome and you get angry all the time but when you let your husband take the responsibility it will be much easier and lighter for you. It is also an advantage when your husband helps you in the house chores because it will be easier on your part in fulfilling your career.
