[Legend: 1 – By encoding one’s birth date, one can read through and peruse via the INTERNET one’s own horoscope & personality traits on both the conventional zodiac sign as well as the Chinese zodiac sign. With regard to Brod Jun Cosio, I relied chiefly on this website for details on his horoscope, personality, life path and traits: and another website:


3 – My late Mommy Norma Tobias is a homegrown inhabitant of Santa Cruz, Laguna. Before meeting and marrying my Daddy Max Young; Mommy Norma had her first marriage with a native too of Santa Cruz, Laguna; a debonair looking guy (as narrated to me by my Mommy Norma) named Benjamin Cosio. It was unfortunate that within the year of their marriage, Mr. Benjamin Cosio succumbed to pneumonia, a seemingly incurable disease then in the 1940s.

4 – BOROUGH is another term for TOWN.

5 – SIGN refers to Brod Jun Cosio’s ZODIAC SIGN.

6 – DUO is used in this BLOG to mean as a PAIR.

7 – A NOMAD is a person who travels from place to place.

8 – Those born like Brod Jun Cosio between February 13, 1945 and February 1, 1946 are members of the Wood Rooster Chinese Zodiac sign.

As a new addition to our FAMILY,

Please don’t think that this BLOG would be a HOMILY…

As I actually intend to give some ADVICE,

Don’t you worry, as it will just be CONCISE!



Per your Chinese zodiac sign on HEALTH1,

You’re advised to do a daily balanced DIET;

You’re urged to do SPORTS too more OFTEN…

This geomancer may not know that you’ve been daily POPPING2!



But the HOROSCOPE’s3 recitals of your CHARACTERIZATION…

Have made an apt portraiture of your

very PERSON;

You’re deemed to be an ADVENTUROUS GUY,

And you are described as BROAD-MINDED & COMPETENT sans any SIGH4!



You’re possessed with the traits of a PROBLEM-SOLVER—

Cause you adopt different approaches to make the problem a NO-BRAINER5

And you are so careful and so CIRCUMSPECT…

You make an effort to always DOUBLE CHECK!



You are deemed as SOPHISTICATED TOO…

And even ELEGANT that seems to be

your positive traits’ DUO6;

You are known too as good at ANALYTICAL SKILLS,

You’re EMPATHETIC and CAUTIOUS,  that’s as regards  the TILLS7!


You’re seen too as good in DIPLOMATIC GESTURES,

[Legend: 1 – By encoding one’s birth date, one can read through and peruse via INTERNET one’s own horoscope on both the conventional zodiac sign as well as the Chinese zodiac sign. With regard to Vimi, I relied on this website for details on his horoscope, personality and traits as well as advice on health:

2 –Popping is a HIPHOP dance style and one of the original funk styles of dance that is thought to have come from Fresno, California during the 1960s-70s. It is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer’s body, referred to as a pop, tick or a hit. This is done continuously to the rhythm of a song in combination with various movements and poses. Popping is also used as an umbrella term to refer to a group of closely related illusionary dance styles and techniques that are often integrated with popping to create a more varied performance. The term was used here to achieve some kind of RHYME.

3 – The enumeration of traits here in this BLOG was obtained too from the website –

4 – Sans any SIGH would connote a natural and sincere manifestation and/or profession of the traits of COMPETENCY and BROADMINDEDNESS on the part of Vimi.

5 – A problem becoming a NO-BRAINER denotes that of a problem becoming easily SOLVABLE.

6 – DUO is used in this BLOG to mean a PAIR.

7 – EMPATHETIC would connote compassion and generosity and CAUTIOUS as wary and unwilling to take a DANGEROUS RISK. Thus, taken together with respect to the term TILLS which denotes money matters; VIMI is generous in giving while money-wise, in venturing into opportunities and business ventures.

8 – SHIELD would mean something that would tend to drive away someone who would want to deal, inter-relate and/or transact and/or communicate with another. In the case of VIMI, he reflects a perception of a truly congenial and approachable person.

9 – FREDDIE ROACH is an American boxing coach and former professional boxer. Roach is widely regarded as one of the best boxing coaches of all time. He is the enduring boxing coach of the eight-division world champion, our very own Manny Pacquiao.

10 – SKYGAZER is used here to mean an ASTROLOGER or HOROSCOPIST or SOOTHSAYER.

11 –  In my earlier FUN RHYME BLOGS, I have usually referred to VIMI as VALIANT VIMI, he being a personification of a courageous, hardworking, gallant, civil and chivalrous fellow.]




 [The birthday celebrant on September 24 and defender of her masteral thesis on September 15, 2017, my lovely wife, CRISELDA EVANGELISTA-YOUNG aka DANG, as we walked the aisle preceding our eldest daughter WINSHAYNA aka SHAYNA. This photo was taken during SHAYNA’s wedding at the ANGELFIELDS NATURE SANCTUARY in Silang, Cavite on May 6, 2017. I have opted to post this early to evoke prayers and wishes for DANG’s successful defense of her MASTERAL thesis. ] *Thanks for the prayers as Dang successfully aced  the defense of her masteral thesis*

Your HOROSCOPE1 describes you as assertive in COMMUNICATION;

… Guess that will make your day in the defense of your written LOCUTION2

Your thesis in your MASTERAL3 is a near MAGNUM OPUS,

For many nights indeed, you accorded it with prime FOCUS4.



Be rest assured that you have our full SUPPORT,

Eventually, with your MASTERAL, you’d  teach with much RAPPORT5—   Instead of teaching CULINARY in SCHOOLS so FAR-AWAY6,

We’ll expect your tuition within  the DILIMAN’s RAY7!



Your thesis which dwells on PINOY STREET FOOD8,

Has uncovered what has been draped on it like a HOOD9;

With your thesis therefore TOURISM could well have a BOOM,

The allure of PINOY STREET FOOD could be enhanced as in a VROOM10!



You are described too as TRULY CONVINCING,

An asset that you’d have as an apt HELPING;   

We’ll pray that you’d achieve much SUCCESS,

Hope you’ll graduate with honors thru sheer PROWESS!



Your CHINESE ZODIAC sign is that of a RABBIT11,

‘Tis a bonus too as you’re described as DIPLOMATIC;

Your acknowledged too as truly very EXPRESSIVE,

Another plus for your thesis-defense — that’s most IMPRESSIVE!



And as the best prop on that date of your DEFENSE,

Remember all our LOVE to induce EFFLORESCENCE12;

The LOVE for you of SHANE, TON, CHE, & ALEE…

With the garnish of unending love from me…yours TRULY!



Thus on September 1513, that’s your DEFENSE DATE…

Consider it as happy 2414 which is your BIRTH DATE…

Be propped with the feeling that we’re CHEERING for you…

You’ll graduate with flying colors and you’ll be teaching ANEW15!

[Legend: 1 – HOROSCOPE – the positive traits of those born on September 24, 1963 can be accessed by encoding at GOOGLE the birth date. Those positive traits could be accessed particularly at via the weblink or URL at

2 – LOCUTION means a SPEECH; but is used in this BLOG to mean a written material, actually a THESIS, just as to achieve a RHYME.

3 – MASTERAL refers to the Master’s education leading to a degree in Master in Food Service Administration within the Department of Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management of the UP’s College of Home Economics (“UP-CHE”).

4 – Since the time when her thesis-writing started; Dang has religiously allotted almost all of his waking hours up to 12 midnight sometimes extending even beyond, to crafting, drafting, revising/redrafting, finalizing and eventual polishing of her thesis entitled: PINOY STREET FOOD IN FOOD TOURISM: A MICROCULTURAL PERSPECTIVE.

5 – Having gone through a series of education in culinary arts after procuring a bachelor’s degree in Tourism at the UP; Dang opted to teach culinary arts at DE LA SALLE. However, as the main hub of culinary studies at DE LA SALLE is principally based in LA SALLE-LIPA, Dang had to content herself teaching at Lipa more often. After inquiring at UP-CHE, following the germ of an idea of teaching in UP (which is just a couple of kilometers away from our home) instead, Dang  embarked on a path towards procuring a Masteral degree which is a requirement to allow her to teach in UP Diliman. Thus, RAPPORT could perhaps ensue with her teaching at UP as Dang graduated from UP too.

6 – That allusion to a FAR-AWAY teaching destination refers to Dang’s previous teaching stint at DE LA SALLE which brought her more often at LA SALLE’s Lipa, Batangas campus.

7 – RAY would ambivalently refer to an ambit, or scope or sign; for which reason, DILIMAN’s RAY is a reference to the UP community which is within the UP-Diliman campus.


9 –  HOOD denotes a cover which in the context used in the BLOG means some kind of a stunting effect that has sort of prevented PINOY STREET FOOD to bloom into fruition as a point of interests in the area of FOOD TOURISM in the country, and the very wider field of TOURISM, in general. Dang’s thesis could very well chart out a path to make the aforesaid fruition to turn into a reality.

10 – VROOM denotes an acceleration of speed into its full level. Thus, it connotes some kind of an abundant and/or favorable progress.

11 – RABBIT is the Chinese zodiac animal sign of those born on September 24, 1963.

12 – EFFLORESCENCE is a period in time when one is thinking and perceiving at his/her  best towards creating a good work, in this case, a GOOD DEFENSE for Dang’s thesis.

13 –  SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 is the appointed date of the defense of Dang’s thesis.

14 – 24 refers to September 24 which is Dang’s birth date.

15 – It is hoped that with Dang’s successful obtainment of a Masteral degree; she will eventually be allowed to teach in UP-Diliman particularly at the UP-CHE.]
