A Different Experience

     I have been visiting my native home country Philippines for seven times now and this time I screwed up. Yes I do not use this word because it does not sound nice but my experienced is awful! Last January I asked my niece to buy me a plane ticket it means a ticket from Manila, Philippines to my hometown down Mindanao. So I told her that the date I will fly out from Manila is March 15 so as I have told she bought the ticket. Last Thursday, was my flight out from Detroit that is March 14, when I arrived Philippines it was March 15, 11:00 pm so the next day is March 16 right? After checking out at the international airport I immediately went to the domestic airport where I am supposed to check in going to my hometown. Guess what happened when I checked in, the person in charge told me my ticket is March 15 and I am supposed to fly yesterday that is her words. So I told her no today is March 15 and she told me it is March 16! I am so shocked and feel awful of my hugeeeeeeeeeeeee mistake I was shaking literally. As what the person in charge told me I went to the ticketing area and buy another ticket for guess how much a whooping 6,513.00 compare to my ticket that I bought last January for just 2,800. But what you can do I have to purchase another ticket so I would be at my hometown that day! This time I was so tired and hungry I have not sleep for two days. The bad part there is no more flight going to my hometown that day and what they advised me is to fly to another city so purchased a ticket. But this time my mind is so drain and just thinking of the flight going to another city a four hours away drive for a bus is very tiresome. Fast forward I did arrived to Cagayan de Oro City and my niece and her friends meet me there. I was happy to see my niece and after the airport we immediately went to the bus terminal and ride another hours. After the bus drive I transfer to a ferry boat to reach my home city. This time I feel good though after the thought and the feeling of being tired and awful I feel rejuvenated. It was a longgggggg journey and still I could not believe after many times I visit my family in the Philippines it was my first time to get the date wrong. I think there is always a first time in everything huh?

Geek Toys

   What is better but to learn and know about Science I remember when I was in elementary I am fond of science. Growing up I also found out that the teacher contributes a lot of influence to the student’s curiosity or willingness to study more. Teachers can influence us in positive or negative outlook about Science subject. The other day I was talking to my nieces and nephew and I found out that there is a teacher in their school that they like and he is a science teacher. They said that he is really good in teaching the subject and he is very patient to them. That is why they said that he is their favorite teacher ever. Now in this generation we may have a favorite teacher but also there are several website that we can learn about Science. One website that I found out is in this website you find the science news 2013. In this website you also find technology news too. Some people say they do not like Science but with my experience if we know somebody who is willing to teach us and patient to us we all like Science. As the adage go “it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out” is so true many things in this world that does not take for us to be a scientist to figure it out. We only need a basic Science  know how to know it. I have said that in this generation it is hard to learn Science besides there are a lot of  geek toys available online and because of this there is no way we would say we do not have a chance to learn about Science because in this generation everything is possible

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Hope To Pick Cherries This Year

These photos were taken two years ago. I love cherries and last year we did not go for cherry picking since the farms around Michigan do not have enough for pick your own cherry/apple because of the late frost that devastated all the fruit trees. This year I am praying we do not have last frost so we could go cherry, apply picking.

I love tractor and this one is pretty!

Many asked me where I learned how to speak and write in English.  I told them in the Philippines since pre-school we taught on how to read and speak English. Even in the remote areas, our public school teaches English. In fact, English language is our second language in the Philippines. When my hubby came to the Philippines for a visit he was amaze because the street signs, newspaper, magazines are in English.  I remember when I was in high school it starts when the teachers are very strict on us student. They told us to speak in English inside the classroom and if we do not speak English, we are to be fine. It goes in college too and this is where I learned more about English language.
I remember I was freshman in college and our teacher asks us to write and essay. I was fresh in high school so I wrote my homework. After that, our teacher asks us to write an essay in different topic or issue of the day. Sometimes nothing, come up in my brain I had to read anything just to make my brain works. When I get here in the US, I found out that - essay-writing company is here for us to help. What a cool idea this is I cannot help but think of my hardship when I was in college writing those essays. Since I know this company does exist I will tell my nieces and nephew about it because I know it will help them a lot!

Again, watching my backyard birds this morning. And as I was watching a small cutie pie Bluebird passed the window. I grabbed my camera and ...
