NMEDA promotes safe driving & equipment for disabled people

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

One thing disabled people are deprived of is their capacity to travel even alone or with their love ones. Usually they are confined within their homes or in an institution that deprive them on their freedom to travel places, enjoy life and be happy. Boredom is one thing that usually felt by people with disabilities and that make them even harder to accept and move on with life with their incapacities.

NMEDA is the answer. What is NMEDA and what they can do for people with disabilities? NMEDA stands for National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association which is a non-profit trade association. They are known internationally as an organization dedicated to ensuring quality and professionalism in the manufacturing and installation of safe and reliable mobility equipment in vehicles for people with disabilities. The association does not sell anything. It promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people.

NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones selling handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. They are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and to follow the association’s guidelines as a member. Also, QAP or the Quality Assurance Program is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It was developed to promote quality, safety and reliability within the industry based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality. Thus in some states, there’s a requirement for dealer’s participation in the QAP to perform work for the Vocational Rehabilitation Program.

The needs and preferences of disabled people vary. To get assistance from a qualified NMEDA dealer just visit and hit the dealer’s locator, type in your ZIP code and see the qualified dealer near you.

Let NMEDA dealer help elderly or disabled get back onto the road of independence.

Nora Aunor's vocal chords damaged in a surgical procedure

The concert made by the Superstar Nora Aunor in Toronto, Canada will be her last performance. It is so because of a surgical procedure believed to gone wrong and damaged her vocal chords. In that regard a subsequent lawsuit is expected to be filed by Aunor. The singer-actress was lip synching her songs on that concert due to her doctor’s advice on not to sing or even speak. It is such a bad news to all her fans and again a clear example of medical malpractice.

Is Nora Aunor a victim of botched surgery?

ABS-CBN meeting with Willie Revillame

The May 24 meeting between the ABS-CBN Management and Willie Revillame has ended. Both parties conceded that Willie will take an indefinite leave but his contract is still in effect. Also, in the said meeting Willie gave his apology to the management for his outburst last May 4 amidst his Wowowee show and for being absent since May 5. As to Wowowee, the show will be hosted by Cesar Montano after the two-week hosting engagement of Robin Padilla ended.

As to ABS-CBN decision to keep Willie within the term of his contract, I think it is a decision
everybody has to respect whether we are for or against Willie.

Noynoy & Shalani love story

I was able to watch the one-on-one interview of Kris Aquino with Senator Noynoy Aquino’s girlfriend Councilor Shalani Soledad. The interview went well and Shalani was very candid and open on their love story. Hearing it from her I guess Senator Aquino got a love at first sight on her. I really like her. She acts and talks very simple and even without make-up she really looks very pretty. She seems to be a woman deeply in love in words and in action to his man.

Transcript of Kris-Shalani interview

President-apparent Noynoy Aquino offers retired Supreme Court Justice Reynato Puno to join his cabinet as justice secretary. Puno after almost two decades of serving in the Supreme Court just retired last May 17 thus paving the way for President Gloria Arroyo to appoint a new one. Although Puno declined the seat of justice secretary he likewise offered to be Noynoy’s legal consultant instead.

Pacquiao-Mayweather bout


Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, seven-division champ and now Sarangani Congressman-elect, agreed to undergo a blood test 14 days before the fight as demanded by Floyd Mayweather Jr. The famous and rich boxer-congressman gave way due to the clamor of boxing fans for a Pacquiao-Mayweather bout. I’m sure lot of boxing fans will be praying for this fight including my husband and 2 brothers-in-law.

Alleged "Search Committee" list

There is this alleged list of the possible members forming the search committee that will recommend who are worthy to be part as cabinet members of President-apparent Benigno Aquino III. Two of them are sisters of Noynoy. Is this the final list or not? Well we just all need to wait and for now look over on the canvassing to be made by Congress.
  • Ballsy Aquino-Cruz
  • Pinky Aquino-Abellada
  • Karina David
  • Mely Nicolas
  • Director Alberto Lim
  • Dina Abad
  • Julia Abad

Willie Revillame's letter to ABS-CBN

Will Willie Revillame leave Wowowee for good or his meeting with ABS-CBN bosses set on May 24 will turn everything into a happy ending? Currently the #1 noontime show is being handled by the “Bad Boy of Philippine Movies” Robin Padilla but only good for 2 weeks. The show is getting favorable response as its rating continues to mount up.

Yes it is true that many casted their unfavorable remarks on Willie over his actions like me but on my part I never ask for his resignation. Willie handles the show very well when speaking of it as a host of the show. I guess that’s the magic of Willie as a game show host. Aside from the generosity of the Network, his ability to keep the show alive and makes people laugh is a talent that suits him to handle the show.

Well for now we just need to wait for the result of the meeting on May 24 to know the ending of the story.

Willie: Please release me!

Noynoy: The anti-smoking poster boy

President Elect Noynoy Aquino admitted in a television interview last March that he would have to quit smoking if he wins in the May 10 polls. Will he? The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control Alliance Philippines or FCAP is asking Aquino to be a poster boy for the government’s anti-smoking campaign. Live by example and live healthy in short. That is the challenge now to Aquino who will in no time assumes his office as President of the Philippines by June 30.

Like Obama, Noynoy wants to give up smoking
No smoking in public vehicles, terminals to be fully enforced
Group asks Noynoy to quit smoking

Kris Aquino leaving showbiz talk shows

Yes it’s official! The Queen of tri-media and controversial sister of President Elect Noynoy Aquino, Kris Aquino, will have to bid goodbye from her showbiz talk shows “The Buzz” and “SNN.” Kris announced Tuesday night at SNN what transpired with her conversation to the big bosses of ABS-CBN Network.

I find Kris effective in hosting such showbiz programs but leaving such shows for a new one that will spare her from controversies and in a way help her brother in public service, why not? ABS-CBN might give her a more appropriate show that will enable her to take part in helping Noynoy in his public service.

Noynoy Aquino over SC Chief Justice Corona's appointment

Newly appointed Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Corona just took his oath taking at Malacañang despite the controversy of his appointment. Will president-elect Senator Noynoy Aquino push his plan to take his oath of office as the President of the Republic of the Philippines before a village watchman? Or will he be abided and follow the ruling made by the Supreme Court on the said issue?

Bad day @ Enchanted Kingdom

We were at Enchanted Kingdom the other day, May 16, to celebrate my daughter’s 10th birthday. Aside from the family we had with us my sister and her 2 sons plus my niece Mika. All of us had “Ride All You Can” tags so that everyone especially the kids will enjoy the world renowned amusement park in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

The day turned out unsatisfactory. First, we discovered that we had to rebook 3 tickets because it dated till May 14. We went to the Group Sales Booth to inquire and give it a try. The receptionist inquired to their office our concern and she said yes it can be rebooked at a cost of Php25.00 each. So we’re happy then to know the good news. I lined up to rebook and buy additional 1 ticket for my sister. When I had my turn the cashier said that it cannot be rebooked anymore and that their office overlooked the ticket’s date. What a disappointment? In rebooking tickets the date is the first one to look for and yet they overlooked it. Without them saying "yes, it can be rebooked" we will not be expecting anymore and we will just buy new tickets.

The second disappointment is the “Flying Fiesta” ride. My son was not allowed to ride because of height requirement of 47 inches and he was 46 inches. We thought that since there are two-seater seats hubby can ride with him to secure his safety. In the end my son was not really allowed to ride. He cried and got tantrums because of that. That was the first ride he really wanted to try. He is kind of adventurous and really wanted to ride all even the “Space Shuttle” ride. If your son is like mine better send him to Star City because there are less restrictions there and more rides are available to kids. You can get your money’s worth especially for kiddie rides. I do understand rules but it is kind of hard to explain to kids that rules. All they know is that amusement park is for kids who love to ride and enjoy.

The last concern is the line up for “Rio Grande Rapids” ride. It is okay to line up but the space provided for the riders is really uncomfortable and difficult. I guess the picture speaks for it. Riders are like prisoners waiting for their turn. Just hoping they will change the line up procedure for the sake of the kids who really love to ride this one.

We like EK but I guess changes or improvements especially for the sake of the kids will be given priority so that they will get to enjoy the park and not only magic will stays in their mind but happiness and satisfaction.

No wedding bells for Noynoy & Shalani

According to Viel Aquino-Dee, one of the sisters of Senator Noynoy Aquino, the wedding is the low priority for now for his brother. Given a 5 million difference to the second in line former president Joseph Estrada, Aquino is said to be the “President in waiting.” Once Noynoy assumes office as the 15th President of the Philippines he will be busy doing his functions and so as Shalani Soledad who won again as councilor in Valenzuela.
