While in the facebook page of Marian Rivera, she posted about her deepest sympathy to the late actor Eddie Garcia.
Marian works with Manoy Eddie in GMA tele serye, and she also considers Mr. Garcia as her second father, yeah she has many second father, why not? but many times she is joking to Eddie and treat her Lolo Granpa. Philippine Cinema will never be the same without Eddie Garcia.

On his recent cause of death in a teleserye shooting in Manila, it has been a talk of town that his life can be revived if only there was a proper first aid in the incident.

Opinions and claims the day Eddie Garcia had an accident
1. He was on a shooting for a GMA television drama and he was given a hard scene
2. He was carrying a heavy gun and the production let him run, he should be given a double
3. A line cable was scattered around the set and that made him fell down
4. There was no first aid, nurse, no stretcher, no expert rescuer
5. Production crew carries him wrong way and that caused his condition into worse
6. Many filipinos love Eddie Garcia, he is the king of Cinema
7. He is already old and his bones are brittle
8. He is very hardworking and he never says 'No' to any role
9. Rumor has it, they put him into a tricycle instead of putting in a van

10. He won many acting awards and lifetime achievement award.
11. There will be a law/bill to be passed to protect filmmakers safety.

Who do you think is responsible for his cause of death, leave a comment below.

Meditation can improve brain memory

In this world of chaos and confusion, it is hard to meditate. Here are few personal moments where you can meditate without putting too much effort and of course talking to yourself is one way. Here's a list which you can apply.

1. While sitting on the toilet. Imagine that you are the king of the world. Close your eyes and the ocean sound...feel the waves...devoid of your emotions.

2. Massage. Close your eyes and empty your mind. Feel the flow of energy the body is getting from the hands of the masseur. You are the King and the controller of peace.

3. Running relax a 3 kilometer. In today's run, it was like meditation. At first was hard to get a drive and motivation but thanks to my running buddy, I feel like doing this run like it's my daily routine.
When you run, you meditate. Try running very very slow and listen to your breathing, you will feel an inner peace.

4. The glow feeling after the run is because the body comes out happy hormones. This meditation is tried and tested.

5. I learned today the monks has a meditation technique where they walked really really slow, my Thai friend said it really helps you focus your mind and concentrate on one thing. It gives a better relaxation and inner satisfaction. A must try experience in Thailand.

6. Danni Ugali, a filipino filmmaker shares how he meditates. I usually meditate while on board, I make myself relax by putting cooling eye mask if available, if not sleeping mask will do. If it's a long haul flight, I bring coloring books or sketch pad to draw. It is also one way of meditation while moving.
