2 becomes 1


For those of you who are familiar with the Spice Girls then you know that the title of this post is also the title of one of their hit songs. Though they carry the same title, they don’t carry the same message as the song is about togetherness this post talks about the opposite – separation. Continue reading 2 becomes 1


Time to relax


I just saw on the news that most health problems that is prevalent in today’s society are stress-related. I am not saying that it is the only cause but I think being under a lot of stress also weaken our immune system thus making us more prone to sickness.

Just like the kid in the photo above back then we also had no care about anything except that which concerns us like food when we are hungry, toys when we want to play and of course playtime with our playmates. Though the responsibilities of adulthood makes it nearly impossible to accomplish the same, probably we can dial down our fast-paced life and award ourselves with a little rest and recreation from time to time.

Although the average lifespan has been lengthen with the advances in science and technology, have it also lessen the quality of life? Leave your comment.

Everyone is important


In this fast-paced world that we live in those who can’t keep up with the┬álatest in science and technology are usually relegated to the sidelines. Though I surmise that this has been the trend from way back as history will attest to this fact, as countries who are leader in technology are also the richest and most powerful. So it is not also far-fetch that it also applies within the society as those who can afford the latest gadget has an edge over those who cannot.

Though from my experience these folks who are not tech-savvy also has an edge especially knowledge they gained from the school of hard knocks. Take for example the guy in the photo, he doesn’t know anything about computers or the latest gadgets nor does he knows anything about computing the dimensions he needs for the steel door he is making but he was able to make them within the time frame required and with outstanding quality workmanship.

Each one of us has a place in this world, you may have a doctorate degree but I bet there is something that a common folk can still teach you. So let us respect each others’ capability and it would be better if we learn to share and teach what may be our expertise.

Alone time


Can one be truly be alone? I think that would be next to impossible. Just look at the photo above that I took on one of my photo walks in the city, I thought I was alone but I had my shadow to keep me company.

With more than 6 billion people in the world right now and all the other creatures inhabiting this tiny planet, one can never be alone. Not even on a deserted island. Maybe on top of Mount Everest?

Although one can just stay in a room and have it all to himself, well isn’t that funny.
