What an ANGEL says..

Published August 29, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva


An Angel says, ‘Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.’

1. Pray

2. Go to bed on time.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.

4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.


6. Simplify and unclutter your life.

7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9.. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don’t lump the hard things all together.


10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can’t do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your budget; don’t use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.


14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.

15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
17. Get enough rest.

18. Eat right.

19 Get organized so everything has its place.

20. Listen to an audio cd while driving that can help improve your quality of life.


21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.

22. Every day, find time to be alone.

23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don’t wait until it’s time to go to bed to try to pray.

24. Make friends with Godly people.

27. Laugh.


28. Laugh some more!

29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).

31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).


32. Sit on your ego.

33
. Talk less; listen more.

34. Slow down.

35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.


36 … Every night before bed, think of one thing you’re grateful for that you’ve never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.

Missing Home…

Published August 28, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

Home is where one feels complete, whole, safe, happy & satisfied. But there’s a big question I have in mind. Why do people leave home? Why do people leave their comfort zone to embark on a journey trudging on foreign soil? Bearing the cold, slumber less night and the scorching heat of the day?

Many will say they had no choice but to do it. Others will say they chose to follow a dream. For whatever reason one has, they were seeking something, seeking opportunities elsewhere, seeking realities to their dreams. Seeking to develop & find themselves. 

 Why does one have to leave in order to find something? Why can’t it be that a person stay put, search, find what they’re looking for and remain where they are? Is it because that in order to find “that something” one would have to take a few steps. and then a couple more steps. Until before one knows it, they are already far.

This is not always bad. Moving forward means that you are doing something for improvement. Knowing that you are not idle can mean something. But knowing that where you are headed towards will lead to find your way back home (at the right time) gives one purpose.

I’m still enjoying the ropes of independence and if I were to ask the most important thing one should realize out of this whole circumstance is that every single one that’s physically away from home establishes a deep relationship with oneself. You only have yourself to count on. Surely you may be surrounded by many people, few good friends but at the end of the day your just by yourself.

I can say I am a bit used to this feeling of being far. But one can never fully adjust to being away from the place called home. One can temporarily forget. Or one can temporarily occupy every conscious minute. But deep within that void will always shout out for that need to be filled. A Family… A place called HOME…

Airplane crashes, burns and breaks into pieces while attempting takeoff in Madrid, killing 153

Published August 23, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

Aug 20′ 2008 – Only 19 people survived after a packed passenger plane crashed and burst into flames during takeoff Wednesday at Madrid’s airport, the Spanish government confirmed.

The mid-afternoon crash, which occurred as the Spanish airplane left the busy Madrid Barajas International Airport, killed 153 people, officials said.

“I have never seen anything like this in my life,” ambulance driver Luis Ferreras told the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

Spanair spokesman Sergio Allard said 172 people were on Flight JK 5022, which was bound for the Canary Islands, off the coast of northwestern Africa. The numbers were frequently updated throughout the day — at one point it was thought 26 people survived and 175 people were on board.

Bodies too hot to touch

Lines of ambulances raced to the airport soon after the crash as a large plume of smoke rose from the accident site.

Emergency services personnel scrambled to pull passengers from the burning plane, while helicopters poured water to douse the flames. A makeshift morgue was set up at the city’s main convention centre, officials said.

“Only the tail was recognizable,” rescue worker Herbigio Corral said of the airplane, according to Reuters. “There was wreckage scattered all over the place and dead bodies across a wide area. A lot of them were children.”

A police officer said the bodies were so hot that police could barely touch them and told El Pais that the shattered wreckage bore no resemblance to an airplane.

Spanish Development Minister Magdalena Alvarez confirmed the number of survivors was only 19.

A Spanish Red Cross official told BBC that they are providing psychological support to family and friends at the Madrid and Canary Islands airports, where many had gathered to greet or send off their loved ones. Passengers from Germany could also be aboard the flight since it shares a Lufthansa flight code, LH 2554.

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero interrupted his holidays in southern Spain to handle the crisis in Madrid, while the Spanish Olympic Committee said the Spanish flag would fly at half mast in the Olympic village in Beijing, Reuters reported. Spain’s national soccer team wore black armbands at a friendly match with Denmark.

Plane passed January inspection

Spanair said the cause of the crash is under investigation, although Alvarez suggested “an error in takeoff” may be to blame, according to Reuters.

The development minister said the aircraft’s flight data recorders have been recovered.

The plane’s first takeoff attempt was delayed after the pilot reported a breakdown in a gauge that measures temperature outside the plane, Spanair spokeswoman Susana Vergara said.

Vergara said the gauge was fixed. The plane crashed on the second takeoff attempt.

El Pais reported that an engine on the plane’s left-hand side caught fire as it was taking off.

“We don’t know the reason for the fire, but that seems to have caused the accident,” El Pais editor Guy Hedgecoe told CBC News.

Hedgecoe said that shortly after the fire began, the plane then descended onto the airstrip, crashed and caught fire at the end of the runway. The plane ended up in a wooded area at the recently built Terminal 4, located on the edge of the airport grounds.

The plane, bound for the popular holiday destination of Las Palmas, was a McDonnell Douglas 82, or MD-82. Boeing, which bought out McDonnell Douglas in 1997, said it is prepared to send as least one representative to Madrid to help with the investigation, should Spanish authorities require assistance.

Spanair said the jet, which was 15 years old, last passed an inspection in January, and no problems had been reported since then.

Wednesday’s plane crash was the deadliest in Spain in more than 20 years. In February 1985, an Iberia Boeing 727 crashed near Bilbao in the Basque region, killing 148 people.

The worst plane crash in aviation history occurred in the Canary Islands, when two fully loaded Boeing 747s crashed into each other in 1977, killing 583 people.

How To Annoy Cabin Crew

Published August 18, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

Former BA stewardess Yasmine Gibson lists her top 10 pet hates

ASK FOR AN UPGRADE

The only people besides the check-in staff who have the authority to upgrade are senior crew members. They won’t do it just because you ask, unless you happen to be the captain’s spouse.

SNEAK INTO THE BUSINESS OR FIRST-CLASS CABINS

There are some people who just won’t take no for an answer and when no one is looking, they see a spare seat and hope that they will not be noticed. But the crew have a passenger list which, as well as giving them passenger details, tells them exactly which seats should be occupied. Culprits will be spotted and hauled humiliatingly back into "cattle" class.

ASK FOR HELP WITH YOUR BAG

You carried it on board, you can hoist it into the overhead locker.

DISRUPT THE SAFETY DEMONSTRATION

Agreed: some people travel a lot and already know the safety demonstration by heart. If they want to ignore the briefing that is their decision. But they should just sit quietly reading, rather than talk, laugh or try to mimic the crew. Don’t bother – you’ll get a tongue-lashing from any cabin crew member worth their salt.

DISOBEY THE FASTEN SEATBELTS SIGNS

The captain illuminates the signs for a reason: either the weather is turbulent or the plane is still ascending or descending.

COMPLAIN ABOUT THE FOOD

The meals are usually catered by a completely different company so it isn’t the cabin crew’s fault if you don’t like your chicken chasseur. There is also not much that can be done at 30,000ft in the air if they run out of beef. However, if you graciously explain you cannot eat/are allergic to the choice that is left, the cabin crew might be able to find you a spare meal from another cabin.

PILE LOT OF RUBBISH ON TOP OF YOUR MEAL TRAYS

It is difficult to fit them all back in to the trolley anyway.

DEMAND A DRINK JUST AFTER THE MEALS HAVE BEEN CLEARED AWAY

After serving countless meals to passengers and being on their feet for hours with no rest, the crew finally get a chance to eat something. This happens when they have cleared all the rubbish in from the passenger meal service. If you value your life, wait 15 minutes or so after this is done before you hit the call button. If you are desperate then go along to the galley; this is slightly less maddening, but still annoying.

ASK THEM TO CLEAN THE LAVATORIES

This doesn’t really come under the job specification of cabin crew. On a full long-haul Boeing 747 flight there are only marginally less than 50 passengers per toilet. It is a horrible job.

PROD MEMBERS OF CABIN CREW

There is something about uniforms that makes people think the people in them are public property. Cabin crew hate going on the Tube in uniform as it is impossible to travel incognito – people always stare or start conversations by asking where they are off to. Something about air hostesses makes certain passengers think it is all right to grab a skirt or prod a shoulder to get attention. They would never do this with other uniformed staff, such as police officers, bus conductors or soldiers. It’s irritating. Please stop it.

AND FIVE WAYS TO INGRATIATE YOURSELF

1 Before they arrive to collect your meal tray, arrange it as it was when it was given to you, minus the food. As you pass it back to the crew, smile and say: "I just wanted to make it easy for you."

2 Take off your headset when a member of crew is trying to talk to you. It saves time and shouting.

3 Empathise with them. Remember if they are short-haul crew this might be their fifth flight of the day.

4 OK, you can read their badges and know what the crew are called, but try to avoid using their first names – they don’t know yours and it seems over familiar.

5 Buy lots of duty-free goods: the crew get commission.

Continental Airline Crew Hospitalized Due to Turbulence

Published August 18, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

Let this be another lesson – keep your seatbelts fastened during all phases of flight! And never get up when that seat belt sign is turned on. You never know when clear air turbulence will strike. When it does the injuries can be catastrophic.

This happened on Monday. A Continental flight from IAH to FLL. The plane was cruising at 31,000 over the Gulf of Mexico when it struck turbulence, causing injuries to all three flight attendants onboard. Each one was taken to the hospital when they arrived in FLL. Fortunately, no passengers were hurt.

Always Fasten Your Seatbelts!. Always buckle the kids up. Safety should always come first!

Flight Attendant

Published August 18, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva
FLIGHT ATTENDANTS (also called stewardesses and stewards) help make flights 
safe, comfortable, and enjoyable for airline passengers. A Flight Attendant's work begins when the plane's crew meets for a preflight
briefing covering route, weather, type of food and beverage services to be
offered, and passengers with medical problems or special requests.

Each Flight Attendant is assigned a work station and specific inflight
duties. On board the plane, Flight Attendants check to see that first-aid
kits and other emergency equipment are aboard and that supplies, such as
food, beverages, blankets, and, reading material are adequate. As passengers
board the plane, Attendants greet them, check their tickets, and assist
passengers by hanging up coats and stowing small pieces of luggageunder the
seats or in overhead compartments.

Flight attendants are responsible for passenger safety. They explain safety
regulations and emergency procedures, check to see that seat belts are
fastened during takeoff and landing, and assure that other Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) safety standards are followed. Flight Attendants are
also concerned with their passengers' comfort. Depending on the length of
the flight, they may operate movie and audio systems, sell and serve
cocktails, and heat and distribute precooked meals. Before and after meals,
Attendants make periodic trips through the cabin to ensure passenger
comfort. For example, they might offer to help care for infants, bring
magazines, or adjust seats. In the event of an illness or emergency, Flight
Attendants may distribute medicine to alleviate symptoms or administer first
aid or operate emergency equipment such as chutes to quickly evacuate
passengers. At the end of the flight they see the passengers off the plane,
inspect and clean the cabin, and fill out any flight attendant reports
required by the airline.


WORKING CONDITIONS

A Flight Attendant's job is both physically and emotionally demanding.
Flight Attendants are on their feet during most of the flight and under
pressure to complete their tasks within the scheduled flight time. At times
they have to serve meals and pour drinks under turbulent flying conditions.
Despite stress or fatigue, they are expected to deal pleasantly with
passengers of all personality types, including those who are difficult or
rude. Although Flight Attendants enjoy the benefits of travel, they also
may have to live out of suitcases for weeks at a time. They may be
scheduled to fly at any hour, weekends and holidays. Attendants are usually
required to purchase their first uniforms. Payment can be made through
payroll deductions.

Most Flight Attendants belong to a union representing all flight attendants
within their airline. Among the unions representing these workers are the
Association of Flight Attendants, the Independent Federation of Flight
Attendants, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.


WAGES, HOURS, AND FRINGE BENEFITS

Flight Attendant wages start at a range of $12,000 to $18,400 annually.
With several years of experience, Flight Attendants can expect to earn from
$14,100 to $20,100 per annum. Top senior wages can reach from $20,100 to
$42,000 a year. The hourly wage paid to Flight Attendants is quite high,
but they are customarily contracted to work only from 50 to 75 hours per
month. If the need arises for them to fly more often, they are compensated
at a rate of time and one half.

Many airlines offer extra compensation on international flights to Flight
Attendants are fluent in a foreign language. The pay differential for
multilingual Flight Attendants can range from 50 to 75 cents per hour.

Fringe benefits can include health and life insurance, retirement plan, paid
vacation, lodging and food costs on "layovers", uniform replacement, and
free or discount air travel for Attendants and immediate family members.


ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS AND TRAINING

Hiring requirements are similar among all the airlines. Flight Attendants
must be at least 19 to 21 years old. Height may be between 5' 2" and 6' 0",
with weight in proportion to height and bone structure. Depending on the
airline, natural vision must be at least 20/50 to 20/200; corrected vision
(glasses or contacts) must be 20/20 to 20/50. General health must be
excellent; all airlines give pre-employment physicals.

A high school education is usually required. In addition, most airlines
prefer two or more years of college and/or work experience involving contact
with the public. Nursing experience or training is advantageous.
International air carriers require or prefer fluency in a foreign language,
such as Spanish, German, Chinese, or French.

Personal characteristics, as revealed in interviews and tests, are extremely
important. When interviewing prospective Flight Attendants, employers look
for maturity and adaptability, a pleasant voice and good vocabulary, good
grooming, and tasteful dress. Applicants are also evaluated on their poise,
tact, and enthusiasm for the job.

Flight Attendant courses, offered by some community colleges and trade
schools, may provide helpful background information on the job and its
requirements. However, airline officials emphasize that such instruction is
not necessary and has little or no influence on their selection decisions.
In any event, all airlines conduct their own training programs for new hires,
regardless of their backgrounds. While in training, which lasts from four to
six weeks, candidates usually receive either a small salary or free housing
and meals. They are expected to bring sufficient money to cover personal
expenses during training, plus moving expenses to their first home base.
Depending on the circumstances, the amount required may range from $200 to
$1,000.




ADVANCEMENT

As seniority increases, Flight Attendants receive higher pay, better flying
assignments, and greater job security. Some advance to management positions
such as flight attendant supervisor, instructor, or inflight services
manager. A few transfer to other departments such as customer services,
personnel, or sales.

FINDING THE JOB

One should apply directly to the airline. Candidates who meet the minimum
requirements may be invited to local group interviews by a team of
recruiters. Those who pass this screening are scheduled for individual
interviews. Free air transportation may be provided to the interview location if in another city.

Reston Virginia

Published August 16, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

 

Aug 14-16′ 2008 – I just came back from Washington (as usual) but this time we used Airbus 340 to Washington & Boeing 777 going back to Doha… I missed Airbus! The last time I flew with this aircraft is 7 months ago (Hongkong Flight) A340’s capacity is 266, While B777 is 305! And it’s equipped with “AIP” an indication panel where you can see the passengers’ seat number who pressed the call bell, so no need to look around like a hunter where the call bell is is! Hehe! And there’s jumpseat in mid galley! Unlike in B777 there’s no seat at all except for drawers!?  But in B777 the bunk beds are more spacious!

Unbelievably, I was able to managed being in-charged of the mid-galley with lots of special meals, nakapag load ako ng 4carts on time eh nasa cabin din ako at the same time because of Bar Service! I can’t blame anyone why nobody helped me load the carts co’z anyone has their own task din & the one’s I’m flying with as in 4-5 times ko na nakasama mga flying buddies ko na. Nice naman sila.
Anyway yun nga back to the story. Nagulat sila How I’m able to finish loading the carts so Quick! Eh nasa cabin din ako…hehe! About the passengers naman same old stories, kakatapos lang nila kumain ask na agad what time next service or hingi na agad ng anytime snacks… Haaaay No comment na!

We arrived the hotel in Hyatt Reston Virginia around 5:30pm (it seems like the rain has just finished) then went straight to Target Supermarket, I invited Ji Hyun (Korean) if she wants to buy some groceries. I told her 18-20mins away lang! medyo rocky & puro grass yung lalakaran and both of us were wearinghigh-heeled shoes! It turns out to be 45mins walk! Sabi nya sakin, “Star, you told me it’s less than 20 mins walk!” sabi ko nalang “this is a good form of exercise!”  She keeps on complaining about how far it is kasi pagod nga sa flight. Kaya nagpapatawa nalang ako the whole time para hindi ako antukin!

Napapasigaw ako sa may parking area kasi umulubog sa grass yung heels namin, Sabi ko nga kay Ji Hyun “Hey let’s go back!!!” then she still continue to walk, sabi nya she was on half way of getting out of the grass mas longer pa pabalik

.

We finished shopping around 9:30pm ate dinner then walk far again but that time its dark already, iba naman yung way namin, we crossed some bridge then followed a long fence but we end up climbing a hill with our high heeled shoes & groceries!  Sabi ko nga “Wow this is unforgettable we should take a picture” sabi nya “Star! I will kill you  sabi ko, “I’m just kidding!” hahahaha! Kasi naman hirap na umakyat ng hill picture pa nasa isip! Pero in-fairness funny din sya kasama naging close na kami coz we always fly
together on a 14hrs flight! =)

We supposed to go to Tysons Mall together but when I called her she was still sleeping so as usual I just went to mall by myself again… didn’t have much time to sleep in our entire 27hrs stay but during our crew rest for 3hrs during the flight I was completely deep sleep!  I can’t believe I have Washington flight again
After 2days…

L’oreal Whitening Toner

Published August 8, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva


What I liked about the product is that, it is water – based so it doesn’t sting. It does not feel heavy to the skin after application and if you apply it at night before sleeping, you can expect a very oily face when you wake up the next morning, which for me is a good thing because it means that the product helped remove pore – blocking dirt and oil.

All about Eye-Cream

Published August 3, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva

I began using eye cream when I started working. It’s been an important part of my skincare regime because I have sleeping disorder (I’m awake the whole night & sleeping during the day!) The eye area seems like the first area that aging can be seen obviously. If you’re a fan of moisturizers to keep your face supple & on a youthful glow include eye cream in your skincare regimen.

Clinique all about eyesOlay eye Cream

If I’m in a layover I’m using Clinique’s All about eyes rich, it’s in my vanity bag which I don’t remove in my suitcase that’s why. If I’m home I’m using Olay Eye Total effects. It has a good description in the label that says it gives a radiant glow and fights the 7 signs of aging all around the eye area. The Result is very minimal to me. I still have dark under eyes. So I tried other eye moisturizer along with Olay I’m also using Lancome D-Contraxol eye serum & Sometimes Lancome Renergie Eye Microlift. Whenever I feel like I also put St. Ives Eye & Face stress gel.

(Sa dami ng nilalagay ko sa eyes ko sana naman effective ang results… hehehehe)

Digital Perm @ Tony & Jackey

Published August 2, 2008 by Mrs. Universe Philippines 2020 - Star Villanueva
Tony & Jackey salon uses high quality Korean products and equipment – this is an all-Korean salon, as all their hair care products, hair color, and stylists are all Korean. They have Filipino assistants to help them shampoo and blowdry hair, but other than that, you will truly be beautified the Korean way.

They said the traditional perm in other salons will lasts for about three months, while digital perm will last for about six. My hair is naturally wavy and since there won’t be such a drastic difference in my hairstyle, I decided to give it a go. The whole process took 4 & half hours! I had a shampoo first then Sunny trimmed my hair for added layers so that the curls will fall more nicely. A pre-perming solution was applied to my hair, then a second solution was applied after 30-40 minutes.

To keep my curls shiny, I use Pantene all day curl mousse. I’m loyal to Pantene Hair Products. The product gives your hair definition & manageability. (I bought it for only $8) Use it in wet or damp hair. It’s not heavy,oily or sticky on the hair as if you didn’t put anything at all. I had my hair permed last May 2008 and until now august I still keep getting compliments about my new hair.
