Hazy Singapore with Monsoon rain

About a month ago the haze started again here with the worst record of PSI 100+…that happen on a Saturday and no wonder we all have trouble breathing. Currently with the monsoon season almost here and it’s been raining almost every afternoon the haze sometimes persist with PSI reading of 50+. This is the only hitch now of living here, being near Indonesia who keep on burning palm plantations on a yearly basis hence the haze over all of Singapore and Malaysia….

Pasyalan ng berks

Ngayon lang ako naka update dito ng aming pasyalan, super busy kasi ang lola…grabe ang naging backlog ko sa trabaho sa hindi ko pagpasok ng isang araw at isang sabado pero sabi ko nga sulit naman sa dami ng aming kasiyahan…

eto na po ang breakdown:

Oct 26 – hintay ko sila up to 1.30am then kumain pa kami and kuentuhan hangga 2am..

Oct 27 – siempre kasi puyat gumising ng medyo late na kaya naka alis kami ng bahay mga 10am na papuntang bird park, ikot ikot ng nakakapagod sa bird park hangga alas 2pm then we took the train again to Bugis area para sa mga mumu na souvenir shirt, we had lunch at Bugis then afterwards took the train again and went to Orchard area. First sa Lucky plaza then we went over to Takashimaya at dun na energize ulit ang mga lola kasi nakakita ng sangkatutak na sale sa gitna ng Takashimaya…branded clothes and bags ba naman at 50-70% off, o di ba!! Hataw sa pamimili…at nagutom din sa wakas kasi almost 8pm na so hanap hanap ng makakainan and we went to Seoul garden for s…

Book buying binge….

I was on buying spree this week-end and mostly bought books, I was at borders yesterday evening and as usual when I am around these shelves and shelves of various books I am completely done. Anyway, now I really have to do some catch-up reading coz I ended up buying about 8 books (not that many but to me it’s a lot already…)

Here’s what I bought:
1. Maid in Singapore – by Crisanta Sampang (got curious because she worked as a maid here and ended up as a filmmaker based in Vancouver – interesting huh?!)
2. Adrian Mole series – 3 books series by Sue Townsend (I find it funny)
3. Three books by David Sedaris (SantaLand Diaries, Naked, Me Talk Pretty one Day) – as recommended by sis Wena, she said he is funny like Jessica Zafra kind of funny
4. One book by Mitch Albom – forgot the title, something to do with relationship with mothers…

So now I have lots to read before going to bed and during my train ride…pahinga muna ipod…

Trivia for TODAY

Friday the 13th
abs-cbnNEWS.com

If we are to follow superstition, today is not the day to do anything. Today is Friday the 13th.

Both Friday and the number 13 are considered unlucky, and their combination is potent. The belief goes back to centuries ago and can be traced to several origins, some of which carry with it overtones of gender issue.

It is believed that Eve tempted Adam to eat the forbidden apple on a Friday, sealing the link between women and the causes of man’s failure.

David Emery, in Urban Legends and Folklore, cites pre-Christian cultures who took Friday as their day of worship, the sabbath. Emery links this to the belief that brings ill-omen to embark on a journey or start work on a Friday. When Christianity came, Sunday (or Saturday, depending on which version of the Bible you read) became the day of worship (when God rested) and Friday became the “Witches’ Sabbath.”

Friday is said to have taken its name from Frigg or Freyr, a Norse goddess of sex and fertility, which corr…

Patawa muna....

Lakas ng aliw ko dito hehe, forwarded email:

I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following the simple advice I heard on Dr. Phil's show, I have finally found inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you've started and never finished."

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, A bottle of Kahlua, A package of Oreo's, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the chocolate brownies, some Doritos and a bag of M & M's.
You have no idea how freaking good I feel.

Philippians 4:13 --- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
