Don't Text While Walking, Biking, Cooking, Etc.

I was browsing the net a while ago when I chanced upon this Yahoo tech news: OMG, text at your own risk. The headline caught my interest and so I read on. According to the news, texting can be dangerous. When? When walking, skating, cooking, biking, boating, and I would add, when babysitting. Yup, certainly texting while doing any of these can be utterly dangerous. I remembered one time, while walking I was busy texting to reply a message sent by my friend. Then, I didn't notice this guy walking towards me, so I almost bump into him if he didn't try to avoid me. He just looked at me with piercing eyes when I glanced back at him. So then, I realized that I really should not text while walking.

I'm sure, some of you have also experienced the same thing. Or perhaps, you were doing other things like cooking or driving and you were texting because you thought you were maximing your time in doing two things at the same time. Yup, you were making use of the time, but you were definitely putting yourself at risk. According to one doctor's statement on the news, "You're focusing on one task for a split second, then focusing on another one, and with something moving 40 miles an hour like a car, it just takes a couple of seconds to be hit." So, better not text when walking, driving, biking, etc.

Ten Things 'Bout Me

I was tagged by my blogging friend, Jhelea. This is about 10 random things about myself. Actually, I've just posted a tag from Jirl in my other blog entitled 7 Facts About Me. So, I'm kindda having a hard time thinking as to what to put on this, since I've already listed 7 out of the ten. Anyway, I decided to just write a new list. But before I do, let me state to you the rules of this tag:

Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random things, facts, habits, or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 10 people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them. Don't forget to leave them a comment ("You're it") and ask them to read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you.

Now, here's my list:

1. I drink slimming tea just to "you know". Because if I don't, it will take days for me to move my "you know". hahaha. Lols!
2. I can type 56 words per minute...and I can say 56x1,000,000,000 words per minute especially when I'm angry. :D
3. I love eating chicken: fried chicken, roasted chicken, chicken curry, chicken bbq, chicken liver, chicken feet, chicken intestine - in short "isaw", but definitely not live chicken.
4. I have a passport already, but never been used, and never been touched - meaning still so virgin..hahaha..and will expire soon..
5. I love playing volleyball, and promise I'll do everything just to save the ball even if it means plunging down the ground.
6. I love surprises, but not the one we got last June 19th.
7. I wanted to be a lawyer, but I ended up a writer. Oh well...
8. I get pregnant in...I just don't know why I always end up having a baby girl.
9. I enjoy washing the dishes, do the laundry, polish the floor, and clean the bathroom. Just don't let me cook and fold the clothes.
10. I have a sweet tooth. Sweets...You name it, I'll eat it...Weee..

Okay, I'm done! Now, you're it: Lyn, Mina, Nays, Cardz, Ate Pres, Twinx, Tala, Mayan, Charm, and Rye.

Sexy Voice+Sexy Body = Definitely Not Me

According to one article that I read today in Yahoo news, sexy people sound better. Now, that made me really think, so I continued to read the whole article. It said that those people who are deemed to have sexy and attractive voices tend to have sexier body once seen in person. Hmmm. So does that mean my voice does not sound attractive just because I'm not sexy? Oh come on! But hey, I don't really give a damn, whether my voice is sexy or not, or if it is my body that is sexy or not. Though I gained weight over three pregnancies, I'm more than proud to be a mom and I consider myself sexy in my own way. Now, it's all up to my hubby! *wink*

More About Glenn Beck

I don't know if you guys heard about Glenn Beck already? But as far as I know, he's one great guy who can put humor in life's complexities. Whether it is about politics or about life in general, his storytelling and stand up act will sure make you laugh and help you forget about your worries even for a while. Now, if you haven't seen or listened to any of his acts, why not visit his website or check out his blog? His site is a combination of entertainment and enlightenment, so believe me, you’ll never get bored reading the articles included in this site. Why not check out the Family and Relationship page? Basically, that’s the category that catches my interest most.

But hey, if you want to see more of Glenn Beck, catch his One Night Only show in Dallas on July 17th. This is a part of his current summer political tour and will be available in selected theaters nationwide. So get a ticket now! Have a great time watching!

My Current Fave Song

While I was at the dorm's "internet station" yesterday, I heard this song that really got my attention. Actually, it wasn't the first time that I heard it. I already loved its melody and lyrics the first time and so upon hearing it again last night, I told myself, "I have to know the title and lyrics of that song!" So, I asked the guy who played that song over windows media player, and he told me that the title of the song was Forget About Me by A Little Bit. I was happy, but not much because I wasn't able to download it. Good thing, my friend Dex has one, and he immediately transferred it to my cellphone. Thanks, Dex!

Weekend To-Do List

Beginning today until Monday, we don't have work. Aaarrgghh I just can imagine how boring my weekend will be! So, I decided to list down some of the things that I can do over the weekend to keep me busy.

1. Organize my things inside my room. Yup I should do this because the past days, I put my things everywhere. End result: my bed is a complete mess!

2. Do the laundry. Nice move Bhem! Instead of paying someone to do it for me, I'd better make use of my time to wash my dirty clothes and let them dry.

3. Watch movies using my laptop...Yup..Yup..Yup..This will keep me occupied so I won't feel so homesick.

4. Go to the mall. Hmmm..Sunday won't be a bad day to go to the mall and spend a few bucks. My friend Talie is here, so maybe we can meet at the mall and go window shopping.

5. Blog...Blog..and Blog...That is right! This will consume most of my time since I need to update my readers about the latest things that happened to me.

So there! My to-do list over the weekend...

A Rather New Info

While surfing the net a while ago, I chanced to see this site about cord blood banking services. It really caught my interest because it never occurred to me that a newborn's umbilical cord blood can be preserved and used to treat many diseases. This was really new to me so I read on.

According to this cord blood banking site, the umbilical cord blood’s stem cells can be used against over 70 diseases and have been actually used for about 8,000 transplants around the world. Wow! Imagine that. Why didn’t I learn about this before? I could have preserved my baby’s umbilical cord blood for such medical purpose. Now that I have learned about this through this site, I could consider the idea next time.

Is this cord blood bank information new to you as well? Why not check this site to learn more? Now, let me continue reading further about this topic. I’m really curious about this.
