123456789

I received a text message from two friends about August 7, 2009. I was fascinated with it and wanted to share it with everyone. Here's a copy of the message forwarded to me:

"At 12 hours, 34 minutes, and 56 seconds on the 7th of August this year (2009), the time and date will be

12:34:56 07/08/09

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

This will never happen in your life again...Be the first to tell them"

I thought that this message was very cool!!! The are a lot of creative people out there who can come up with this kind of mesages.

The Death of Micahel Jackson

The death of Michael Jackson stunned everyone. The king of pop is gone and the only thing that remains is his life story and music. He has played a big part in the recording industry with unforgettable songs like Thriller, Bad, and Ben. As per the news that came out, he was found in a state of coma at his rented house in California and may have died of cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest,commonly known as heart attack, is one of the most deadly and a silent killer.

People were so busy reading news about his sudden death when in fact this is his second death. News of the police finding the body of the real Michael Jackson buried in his own ranch, Neverland, became a headline in the internet. Based on the investigation, Michael Jackson died 15 to 20 years ago from 2005. Evidence was based on his dental and DNA records.

Now, I'm having second thoughts on who is who.

Who is the real Michael Jackson?

With two corpses on the news

...let's just pray for both of them that they may rest in peace.

Ice Breaker

I'm currently on cross training for a new account in our company. Our usual perception of trainings is that its boring, no fun at all, and something that we should be attending before we start our new job or assignment.

Our trainer has a very good habit of enforcing ice breakers during training to wake everyone up before proceeding. One of the best ice breakers that we had for the class was teaching everyone how to do a very simple dance.

Of course, I didn't join (I have two left feet...)...I stayed behind the camera

Happy Father's Day

I totally forgot that it was father's day last sunday. I failed to greet my husband, my dad and my friends. I feel so bad right now!!! I wish I can turn back the days and have my chance of greeting them again.

I have been living on my own (with my son and his yaya) for about three years now. My husband is in Singapore and he has been gone for the longest time. Not having a father figure at home might have caused my amnesia. My son was just year old when he left and now he is four. The last time I spoke with him, he has no idea when he is coming home.

I have noticed that television has not been advertising the "Happy Father's Day" occasion compared to Mother's Day. Are mothers more special? I'm not sure if you noticed the same thing. Television plays a big role with constantly reminding us of special celebrations within the family.

Back to School

In the Philippines, all schools require every student to wear uniforms usually from Monday to Friday. Some schools would allow students to wear any attire during fridays. Of course, rules still apply with that provision. I remember that we can't wear short shorts, mini skirts, sleeveless shirts and the like to avoid harassment and for our protection. Some students follow the rules, some don't. For me, this is a good move for schools to identify their students and also increase security.

I love the nursery uniform of my son. He looks like a sailor in this outfit... I think all he needs is a hat.

Finally

FINALLY...after a long time of not being able to write anything on this blog...I feel so excited right now. A lot of things happened during my "IDLE" days and I'll be writing it one by one. I don't want to bore you with how my life has been going and what's keeping me busy these days.

First off, my baby started school last June 1. Just like any mom...I was more excited than my son. I got up so early in the morning just to prepare his school things and snacks. His classes doesn't start until 10:30 am and here I am so alive at 6:00am and keeping myself so busy.

We were so early when we got to his school and since it was his first day, the classes were held for only one hour instead of two hours. I ended up treating him lunch in a fastfood chain and doing our stroll down Session Road.

My son cried on his first day...I cannot let go of him but I needed to. Separation anxiety was the real killer for that day.
