ByIsabel Guarco Feb. 22, 2019 I always thought my eyes looked strange on my face. Nothing else about me appears characteristically Asian; my thin brown hair, my Mediterranean nose and my olive skin tone could fool anyone into thinking I am some form of Southern European. But my almond-shaped eyes with a slight tilt at the edges say something different. I suppose if eyes can be the window to one’s soul, mine also are the window to my heritage. But I never knew the woman who had my eyes. My grandmother, Belén, was born in 1923 in Manila, Philippines. My father told me that she was orphaned at 8 years … [Read more...] about Seeing My Heritage Through My Grandmother’s Eyes
How i lost my virginity
THE 16-year-old winner of a golden Sex Island ticket has told how he lost the virginity on the infamous orgy holiday - and how he now plans to marry one of the girls he met there. Brian, a Chilean living in New York, won the all-expenses-paid trip to the tropical island romp-fest after entering a raffle - using his dad’s credit card without telling him. Before leaving for the vacation, where guests are promised unlimited drugs and orgies with 100 “Latina” women, the schoolboy claimed he was a virgin and had only kissed a girl once. Despite his horrified mum refusing to speak to him after she found out, he said his parents signed a consent form to allow him to go on the debauched four-day holiday on an island off the coast of Venezuela, which started on Friday.

When it comes to spending money, Howie Mandel, host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Deal or No Deal,” has a key rule that he says : no gambling. “I don’t gamble with money,” he tells CNBC Make It. He likes to keep what’s in a savings account in a savings account, he says, following the idea that you “don’t put anything down that, if it totally goes away, your life would be any different.” That conservative nature, Mandel admits, would likely make him “one of the worst contestants ever” on “Deal or No Deal,” where those who participate must often take big risks to win. “In my mind,” he says, “if I showed up for 10 minutes and somebody said, ‘The banker is now offering you $15,000’? Deal. You’re handing me $15,000! There’s a chance I could tank on the next couple of openings, there’s a chance I’ll never see the million dollars.” He’d … [Read more...] about Howie Mandel: My Number 1 Money Rule Means I’d Be ‘One of the Worst Contestants Ever’ on ‘Deal or No Deal’
Fiona Caine solves your personal problems. Question: Why can't I hold it together when I'm around guys? I get nervy, tongue-tied and sweaty and I also blush like a tomato, which is never a good look!I'm 28 and, although I have had a few dates, they have all led nowhere, as I struggle to talk coherently with other people, particularly men. My sister says that I am attractive and, if I am patient, I will meet Mr Right one day, but how much longer have I got to wait? I already feel that I am the only 28-year-old virgin on the planet.Fiona says... I think your sister has a point; you're possibly putting too much pressure on yourself to find someone, which might be making your symptoms of shyness even worse.Thinking negatively about yourself probably isn't helping either. Shyness and a lack of confidence stem from anxiety in social situations but the good news is, you CAN do something about it. Please consider counselling, which I suggest you speak to your GP about … [Read more...] about I get so nervous around men – Fiona Caine

PHOTO: UNSPLASH Mental health should now be the top priority of every person wanting to function fully and maintain a healthy life. However, most of the world does not take this need seriously, and Pakistan is no exception. The country at large remains unaware of the importance of sound mental health, and while certain campaigns do address such issues, they mainly cater to a particular class. Bullying, depression, anxiety, and hundreds of other psychological conditions aren’t taken seriously here, as people believe they will disappear on their own or by prayer, or else the person will be treated harshly or abused for being hypersensitive. Overall, when it comes to mental health matters, people usually don’t identify these as issues and when they do, … [Read more...] about Another life lost to depression and yet we don’t consider mental health a grave issue?
