Google celebrates 160th Anniversary of the First World Fair
According to Wikipedia.com
World’s Fair, World Fair, Universal Exposition, and World Expo (expo short for “exposition”), are names given to various large public exhibitions held in different parts of the world. The first Expo was held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom in 1851 under the title “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations”. “The Great Exhibition”, as it is often called, was an idea of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, and was the first international exhibition of manufactured products. As such, it influenced the development of several aspects of society including art and design education, international trade and relations, and even tourism. Also, it was the precedent for the many international exhibitions, later called “World’s Fairs”, which were subsequently held to the present day. In Acapulco, New Spain (Mexico), annual fairs took place for several centuries where countries from Asia exhibited their products brought to the New World by the Spanish Royal Navy Nao de China.
As I have said in my earlier entries, my summer vacation here in our hometown is not, indeed, a summer seasoned-vacation but a rainy one. By far, it’s definitely a cold summer as always experience.
Here in our home town, raining heavily – windy, as it is, is not an unusual scenario. Flooding in some towns in the province is always happening too. Good enough it doesn’t happened yet in our town.But the low temperature here is very remarkable that even some of the agricultural processing companies are using cast iron radiators. These materials are basically used for the heating of certain area or room usually storage rooms of agricultural products that are needing a higher temperature. Just so our province here loves the colder weather than the hot one,cast iron radiators are being utilized.
At home, we do not use cast iron radiator, off course. We usually do not use heater because we are already used to the environment. But when we do bathing, we just use a tub water heater instead.
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
It’s time again to learn Visaya from our friends in Bisdak Bloggers Network. It’s Hulagway sa Kinabuhi once again!

Google celebrates 226th Birthday of John James Audubon
John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) was a French American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter. He painted, catalogued, and described the birds of North America in a manner far superior to what had gone before. Born in the French colony of Saint Domingue (now Haiti) and raised in France as a youth, in his embrace of America and his outsize personality and achievements, he represented the new American people of the United States. wikipedia.com
Summer is supposed to be hot and sweaty. Isn’t it?
But here in our province, in out farm town, it’s the most opposite.

The muddy roads welcomed me when I arrived home. I haven’t even seen until now any smiles from Mr. Sunny. This is the worst summer vacation I am having here ever since I could remember.
And as one expects to any who’re used in a normal cooling temperature, working or even just moving in a cold weather around is not very conducive to such. In fact, in my more than a week of stay here, I only do eat, sleep, play over the computer, eat and then back again. However, I still didn’t get much weight so I don’t need weight loss green tea anymore though it’s a good extra fat removal drink. This is because I was confined for 24-hours in the hospital after suffering from diarrhea.
Hey, talking more about tea, my elder sister is wanting to loss weight before the school year 2011 starts. She is a librarian, she’s Didong’s mom. She has been trying a number of diet pills but those just work while the pills are taken in but when she stopped, she always get those fats back. As she said, as a librarian in a university, it doesn’t cause her to move all her body all day. That’s maybe the cause why she easily gets fat. What my mom advised her lately is to try tea drinks which my mom read and heard from her friends like Tava Tea, which is good fro losing extra fat.
Anyway, I’ll be flying back so soon in Cebu City, there, it’s too hot, a very opposite here. So maybe, Mr. Sunny will only see me there.
Aside from having Ero (dog) and Elepante (elephant) as my other entries for this week’s Hulagway sa Kinabuhi of Bisdak Bloggers Network, I also am having Ering or Cat!

In the midst of the Holy Week, Google is celebrating Earth Day today!
Google Celebrates Earth Day 2011
But I guess, it’s not just Google which will celebrate Earth Day 2011, but each of us.
To be involved in celebrating the Earth Day 2011, one can do any environment-friendly act even in the simplest way one can do at home. For instance, segregating plastic materials, non-biodegradable from biodegradable stuffs at home is one.
Another thing to do is to recycle all the available recyclable materials at home. Bottled-containers can still be reuse as water re-fillers and more.
You can visit Earth Day 2011 official website for more information and updates for the Earth Day 2011 celebration.
Didong and Didang are already 4 years old. Didong celebrated on December 1 while Didang, has just recently turned 4 on April 17.

for the kids. She also provided the kids with writing pens and papers inside a Stephen Johnson toddler backpacks
. Didong has a Naruto-design on it while Didang has Dora design too.
Last February 2011, my mom was sharing her plans to send the kids to summer classes or summer camping. I told her that if I could come home, I’ll be attending with them. So my mom waited until I got home.
However, so sad to think that when I got home, I suffered from different illnesses that even caused me to be confined. The preplanned summer classes for the kids were not pushed thru. I don’t know what the plans of my sister, brother and mom as of this time.
