    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos October 28, 2012 Eye Care Through Ideal Vision Of the five senses of touch, smell, hearing, taste, and sight…the last is considered by most as most precious. Losing the sense of touch is not a great loss, nor is smell and taste. Hearing deprivation adversely affects verbal communication. But devoid of the capability of seeing…an individual may have his world lost. Thus, when John Millton lost his eyesight, he wrote his masterpiece, “Paradise Lost.” When […]

Palapos October 14, 2012 The American Dream Having decided to vary my trip to USA this year, I chose Eva Air for a Taiwan stop-over, before proceeding to New York in a 14-hour flight.

Fly Cathay Pacific, and the stop-over is in Hongkong; Narita or Nagoya for JAL, Bangkok for Thai Airways, Inchon for Korean Air and Asiana, and Singapore for SA. Philippine Airlines has no flight for New […]

    Health–Care Through Acupuncture

    One-On-One With Loy m. Palapos October 7, 2012 Health–Care Through Acupuncture The general practitioners have long given way to the Specialists in any profession or career.
