Lighten up

Hey you...yes you! Lighten up. You will be alright. I know it looks all gloomy and dark now but there will be better days. You will smile again!

Just try to be very grateful for the many good things you have in your life - and forget about the things you don't have....yet! They will come...just have faith.

No matter what you are going through now...just remember, this too shall pass. In this world we live in, nothing ever last. Nothing!

Your current situation is only a chapter in your life...you will get over it and you will be stronger, better and happier...just trust in God who never disappoints. And whatever it is you think you lack and want...keep praying, never stop ASKING, SEEKING, KNOCKING and BELIEVING...never ever stop that.


If you're being hard on yourself...stop it! If you've done wrong, forgive yourself, be gentle on yourself, love yourself and be hopeful.

You will get over all this...you will be fine...so pls lighten up. SMILE! Is that a smile I see? Good! :-)

Now go watch a movie...hang out with friends...sit for hours talking to your mum, it's therapeutic.

I'm going to be MIA for a few days...I'm working on a project that will take me away for a few days..I'll catch you guys when I'm done. Just thought to leave the above message for all those feeling really low right now. It's xmas...don't let anyone or anything mess with your spirit. Be happy ok?

God bless you all
Kisses!

Tiger Wood's third alleged mistress revealed


 Life & Style reports that Kalika Moquin, a Las Vegas marketing manager, is the latest woman to have had an affair with Tiger Woods. Here is the press release from the magazine.

 
















Life & Style can exclusively reveal the identity of a woman who has quietly been seeing golf star Tiger Woods for months -- as recently as late October.

Kalika Moquin, (pictured above) a marketing manager for The Bank nightclub in Las Vegas, hooked up with Tiger more than once at his Las Vegas hotel during the weekend of Oct. 23, an insider tells Life & Style. Kalika is the third woman to be publicly linked to Tiger.

Club promoter Rachel Uchitel and Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs have also been named in shocking reports as women with whom Tiger has cheated on his wife of five years, Elin Nordegren.

When contacted by Life & Style, Kalika neither confirmed nor denied an affair with Tiger. "It's not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other," she said. "At this time, I'm just choosing to focus on my job."

Reps for Tiger would not comment. But the insider tells Life & Style, "They've hooked up a bunch of times. Tiger told Kalika that married life isn't all it's built up to be. He said he wasn't happy in his marriage or his home life and that there was just so much pressure on him."

Now I really feel sorry for this man. He already pulled out of his Gulf tournament this weekend.What next? You think his wife will stay?

    Tiger Wood's other woman speaks

    On Nov. 24 -- the day before reports of his alleged infidelity first surfaced -- Tiger Woods, 33, phoned his off-and-on girlfriend, 24 year-old Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs, and left a message in which he begged her to change her voicemail greeting.

    "Hey, it's Tiger," he says in the voicemail, obtained by Usmagazine.com. "I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye."






















    In this week's issue of Us Weekly, Grubbs details their 31-month affair. She reveals that they first hooked up in April 2007, and went on to have 20 sexual encounters.
    She also shares her evidence, including photos and more than 300 racy text messages. One from Woods begins: "I will wear you out..."

    "I loved how we got along," Grubbs tells Us Weekly. "But I knew, in the back of my mind, there could never be just us. There would always be the wife, or somebody else."

    I kinda feel sorry for this guy (I don't condone his cheating though)...he's lived a scandal-free life until now.
    You think all these controversies will affect his career and especially his endorsement deals?

    Uganda proposes death sentence for homosexuals


    The leadership of the country of Uganda, has proposed the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality."

    Life imprisonment is the minimum punishment for anyone convicted of having gay sex, under an anti-homosexuality bill currently before Uganda's parliament. If the accused person is HIV positive or a serial offender, or a "person of authority" over the other partner, or if the "victim" is under 18, a conviction will result in the death penalty.

    Members of the public are obliged to report any homosexual activity to police with 24 hours or risk up to three years in jail – a scenario that human rights campaigners say will result in a witchhunt. Ugandans breaking the new law abroad will be subject to extradition requests.

    "The bill is haunting us," said Mugisha, 25, chairman of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a coalition of local lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex groups that will all be banned under the law. "If this passes we will have to leave the country."

    President Yoweri Museveni appeared to add his backing earlier this month, warning youths in Kampala that he had heard that "European homosexuals are recruiting in Africa", and saying gay relationships were against God's will.
    "We used to say Mr and Mrs, but now it is Mr and Mr. What is that now?" he said. In a interview with the Guardian, James Nsaba Buturo, the minister of state for ethics and integrity, said the government was determined to pass the legislation, ideally before the end of 2009, even if meant withdrawing from international treaties and conventions such as the UN's Universal Declaration on Human Rights, and foregoing donor funding.

    "We are talking about anal sex. Not even animals do that," Butoro said, adding that he was personally caring for six "former homosexuals" who had been traumatised by the experience. "We believe there are limits to human rights."

    T.W.O releases new video


    Foremost showbiz couple Tunde and Wunmi Obe has released their second video in four months

    A satiric and hilarious video laced with meaning and parable, “Fine Bara” tells a story of a corporate beggar “All we were just trying to do was tell the usual story that happens around. These days, there are a lot of techniques being used by people to extort money from people” Tunde Obe says

    Directed by Clarence Peters in Lagos, Nigeria, Fine Bara is a comic glance at the usual habits of beggars in Lagos and other Nigerian cities, and while many will be lost in the amusing drama on the video, the message is not lost.

    Solange Magnano: Former Miss Argentina Dies From Cosmetic Buttocks Surgery...
















    A 38-year-old former Miss Argentina has died from complications after undergoing cosmetic surgery on her buttocks.

    Solange Magnano, a mother of twins who won the crown in 1994, died of a pulmonary embolism Sunday after three days in critical condition following a gluteoplasty in Buenos Aires.






















    Close friend Roberto Piazza said the procedure involved injections and the liquid "went to her lungs and brain."

    "A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behind," he said.

    Magnano's burial Monday was shown on Argentine television.



















    Dr. Gonzalo Cortes Tristan said she arrived at his hospital with an acute respiratory deficiency. Her condition deteriorated until she suffered the embolism.

    A really sad way to go...I feel more sorry for the children she left behind. I still don't understand some people's obsession with cosmetics surgery. I mean if you look this beautiful, what more do you want? *sigh*.
    May her soul rest in peace

    Four police officers shot and killed at coffee shop

























    Four police officers were shot and killed yesterday at a coffee shop in Tacoma, Washington. A gunman opened fire as they sat at a table before their shift.

    The attack, which happened at 8.15am, was clearly targeted at the officers, not a robbery gone bad, as there were marked patrol cars outside and they were all in uniform.”



    The killed police officers

























    The suspect, Maurice Clemmons (pictured above) has a history of violence. Right now they have him wounded (one of the officers managed to shoot him before being killed) and surrounded in a home.
    Will bring you update.

    Too sad!
