How life used to be
It's so crazy
You and me.
You came into my life
And stopped the pain
What you'd gain.
At first I thought, Yeah, right!
This girl's not for real
But here you are
Loving me still.
I'll love you forever
My love for you will never end
I'll stand by you through thick and thin
My love for you will never end.

I need to trim down. This was what dawned on me when I had a physical for my transfer to another unit of the organization I work for. I went to the company doctor and I was surprised when I weighed-in at 168 lbs. For boxing enthusiasts, that means I'm a Super Middleweight. My normal weight used to be at the 140-150 lb range. I guess this weight gain started when I got married. It's easy to lose track of things like exercising when you have someone who pampers you like a baby, like my wife does. When we're together, it seems that we are always eating out or lounging at home during rest days. Not that I mind the bonding moments with my wife, but I feel I have to keep track of my health. I'm not getting any younger and it is hard to be hospitalized these days. Anyway, I really need to start an effective weight-loss program. I'm already losing valuable pogi points with this double chin that I now have.

This, as the Tin Can Makers Association of the Philippines, Inc. announced that 202 by 306-milimeter tin cans used for canned sardines and corned beef has gone up by P0.35-P0.40 per piece to a range of P3.35 to P3.40 this month.
Trade and Industry Secretary Peter B. Favila stated, “We assure the public that the Price Act will be strictly enforced during the course of our monitoring activities. We want to prevent unscrupulous retailers from raising their prices out of mere speculation so that the consumers do not have to pay more than what is due them.”
DTI Undersecretary for Consumer Welfare Zenaida Cuison Maglaya added that aside from monitoring the price situation in the metropolis, the DTI has also mobilized market monitoring teams in other parts of the country as well through its regional and provincial offices, as well as tap the assistance of local government units to avert any undue increase in the price of goods.
Secretary Favila warned that retailers tend to jack up their prices higher than the projected levels and do so immediately in spite of having an existing inventory that should be sold at current values.
Only canned sardines manufacturers in Zamboanga has announced intentions to increase the price of their 155-gram products by P0.50-P1 in the coming weeks due to rising tin plate prices in the world market. Imported tin plates comprise 70 percent of tin can production costs.
Tin can costs make up about 20-45 percent of the total retail price of canned goods, varied depending on the type of commodity.
DTI’s latest price report reveal that a 155-gram can of sardines costs between P10-11, while a 165-gram can of luncheon meat is sold at P23 to 26.
Meanwhile, Undersecretary Maglaya reminded consumers to practice wise buying to get the best value for their hard-earned peso. “One of the ways is to practice comparing prices. With so many brands to choose from with varying range of prices, the consumers can exercise their right to choose and buy one which suits their budget best.”
She also urged the public to report complaints in price and/ or quality, NFA rice diversion, hoarding and profiteering activities to DTI Direct 751-3330 open from Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm or call the nearest DTI Regional and Provincial offices. Complaint may also be sent by keying in DTI
