Beloved Abigail Beloved Abigail

As I greet everyone this Valentines and Chinese New Year, I am proudly announcing a triple celebration today.  My only daughter, Beloved Abigail, is celebrating her 10th birthday.  She is a millenium girl, born February 14, 2000.

The first part of her name, Beloved, comes from the name of a Christian cell group of the Church Of God (COG) – Makati.  Abigail, second part of her name, comes from a Bible character who exemplifies integrity and character.  Abigail’s name belongs to one of the most faithful and honorable women mentioned in God’s Word.

Am truly proud of my daughter, being so energetic, always happy, lovely, gentle, thoughtful, loving, full of wisdom and God-fearing.

God bless you my daughter and I wish that more blessings will come your way.  May all your wishes be granted, God willing.  I love you bebe.  Everybody loves you bebe, from dada, moma, lolo, lola, nanay, tatay, tito, tita, nicole, totoy, biboy, raven, ravie, other relatives and friends.

Hold that send button.  Check this post first before sending your Chinese New Year text greetings.  In the Philippines, most people use to greet other people “Kung Hei Fat Choi” during Chinese New Year.  Do you know that this does not mean “Happy New Year”?

Chinese has nine dialects, but, majority of Chinoys (Filipino-Chinese) use Hokkien, Mandarin, and Cantonese.  Do you want to correctly greet your Chinese friends this Chinese new year in their own language?  Then you should read this Chinese translations:

Congratulations and wishing you prosperity!

  • Cantonese:  Kung Hei Fat Choi
  • Hokkien:  Kiong Hee Huat Tsai
  • Mandarin:  Kong Xi Fa Tsai / Gong Xi Fa Cai

Happy New Year!

  • Mandarin:  Xin Nien Kwai Le / Xin Nian Kuai Le
  • Hokkien:  Sin Ni khòai lok
  • Cantonese:   Sun nien fai lok

Binary Bomb-Smallest Explosive

Friday, February 12th, 2010 | Video with No Comments »

Binary Bomb

The authorities are now on the lookout for the world’s smallest bomb yet, called, Binary Bomb.  This explosive is so small, that its size can be compared to a tip of a match stick.  But is this for real?  It is just right that our authorities take this seriously, because in this world, nothing is impossible nowadays.  With the fast-paced technology that we have, improvements in such kind of explosive is not far-fetched.  Anyway, there is nothing wrong in taking precautionary measures.  In any case, prevention is always better than cure.

You may see how the bomb is produced here.
