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.

Rushing to Download

Since I will be flying back to Cebu City tomorrow and my computer unit, Maysa, will be flying back with me also, my cousin is rushing to the free mp3 downloads opportunity from a free downloading website that he’s checking since then. Maysa, my desktop computer unit, functions the fastest when it comes to accessing internet down-loadable sites like music and movies. That’s why my cousin is rushing now to download all the music that he’s wanting to have.

Anyway, as soon as I get back to Cebu City, I will be checking my fave websites for me to download free movies that I missed the past two weeks. I also have the newest sites given by my classmate in medical school which he uses every time he downloads movies. The site is very good, according to him, because the feed sites of that specific source fees faster compared to other websites offering free downloads of movies.Oh well, I gotta check that websites myself as soon as I get back to Cebu City. I already have listed a couple of movies that I am wanting to watch days before our classes in medical school starts. I also wanted to check those movies that I have already watched years back but I am getting thrilled remembering some of the clips of those movies, so I guess, I better get a copy of the movie so anytime I’d want to watch it even in my apartment, I could easily access then. Isn’t that a good thing? What do you think?

So, I gotta pack my baggage now. See you then!

New Library for My Librarian Sister

My sister Bait, Didong’s mom, a graduate and licensed librarian, has just recently assigned to a new school, a tertiary school, as the college librarian. And on Monday, April 25, 2011, was her first day of duty.

This school, college, is not her first school assignment as a head librarian. If am not mistaken, this is her 4th school already. She has been assigned in Davao City and Butuan City before. But she stopped for the reason I do not know and decided to just be here nearer at home.As she shared, the library of the new school is just ok. There are only a few things to change inside the library like the modern chairs and tables for each student’s use while inside the library and the executive desks for hers and a colleague. The rest, everything are still looking good and satisfying for her which are good to hear for at least, she has nothing more to do much for the library.

Talking about furniture and other stuffs fitted inside an office or an executive room, spacify.com offers the best office furniture online. Aside from the cheap prices of furniture offered, the shop ships furniture ordered online for free on selected products and having no sales tax.

Cold Summer as Always

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.

Gapas

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

It’s time again to learn Visaya from our friends in Bisdak Bloggers Network. It’s Hulagway sa Kinabuhi once again!

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

Rainy Summer Vacation 2011

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.


Heavy rain taken in our farm town
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. Smiley

Google Celebrates Earth Day 2011

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.

Summer Classes for Didong and Didang

Didong and Didang are already 4 years old. Didong celebrated on December 1 while Didang, has just recently turned 4 on April 17.

Both kids are very enthusiastic now when talking about going to school. In fact, my sister, Bait, has bought a lunch tote and kid duffle bags 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.
