Epic Fail: Children's Toys

My nephew is only 2 years old but he likes to shop around the market for toys. My parents like to bring him along so that he won't throw tantrums. Apparently, he takes after my mom; uneasy when indoors (in other words, super GALA). Anyway, whenever he returns from the market he always has a new toy or a pair of slippers. On most days, his sense of taste is just amazing. For a child to pick "puma" slippers among all those "beach walks" is something to be proud of. Much to his mother's dismay, he also buys candies and jellies from the market which he loves.

The other day, my parents took him to the usual places. But this time he wanted a toy...a paddle of sorts. It's one of those typical plastic paddles with a plastic film on the center. It's really noisy but somehow addictive to play with. What made it an epic failure was that the character on the middle was a confused inter-racial's sort of difficult to explain so i took a picture. Here it is:

Funny News: Ecchi Suru?

It is no secret that economic powers such as Japan and Korea are having problems with their low birth rate. Even China has been having 'demographic" problems because they are severely lacking females in their population.

So how do they solve this? In S. Korea, they implemented the "lights off" policy. They claim that they can encourage their citizens to make more babies if they switch the lights off in the office earlier. Let's keep our minds off the gutter for a while, ok? They are not saying they should have a massive orgy in the office, they are encouraging their people to leave the office earlier and make babies AT HOME with their PARTNERS. OK? Now that our mind is semi-clean, we can now proceed to other 'benefits' they might have if they do the hump the bump and produce possible laborers for the country, the ministry says that they will get cash incentives. That's great! they encourage you to leave work early, have sex, and make babies. That is one supportive government.

Disclaimer:The people in the picture are not korean, they are Japanese. The hot shirtless guy is Mokomichi Hayami. I do not own him, but i wish I do. if you do not know what "echi suru" is, then good for you. If you want to know, there is always the all knowing oracle called google.

Facebook "Color" Fever?

Earlier this evening I received a personal message from my sister-in-law about a sneaky move by ladies in facebook. I found it really interesting so I joined the bandwagon. I posted a color on my wall, and forwarded the message to my friends. Soon after that I saw some of my friends posting their colors and surprisingly enough, others were actually asking about it. Some were actually bothered by it enough to post to their own walls asking about the strange happening.

This is an example of a weird conversation on one of those inquiries. For the sake of camaraderie, I will not spoil the fun. Good luck and have fun!

Happy New Year!

For lack of better words to use, I will use the template for these sorts of stuff. Happy New Year everyone!
2009 hasn't exactly been an exceptional year for me, it seemed to have passed by in a breeze. Fine there are some highlights that came during the -ber months; Ondoy, DEATHS, new job, and new additions to the family. However I feel that I haven't grown as a person this year. I actually feel more lost than ever.

Unlike most people, I do not make new year's resolutions primarily because I think it's bogus. If you want to change something about yourself, then change it. No need to make promises(I actually believe in the saying "Promises are meant to be broken"). But if I have to make "plans" I intend to become less threatening and more feminine (steep, IKR). I guess that's it. does one put on make up? What are those eye thingies you put on your eyelids again?

On other news, I now have a new camera! YAY!
