Modus Operandi Alert This Holiday Season: Hypnotism

As the Christmas season is already in full swing, so are the people out there who would do anything to make extra money even if it meant harming others. I don’t usually post articles like this, but I am just too bothered not to share what happened to my best friend’s sister about a week ago. I, too, have a sister and friends who are still in school and may be potential victims of this gang. It is bad enough for your phone to be taken without your knowledge, but it is way worse to be hypnotized, taken to another city with all your belongings gone upon coming back to your senses. The worst part, you have no memory of how it happened. That’s what happened to my friend’s sister. Please read the account below and I hope it would help you stay cautious and safe this holiday season.

Get a Chance to Bring your Family to The Mind Museum for FREE!

IMG_9215I was so excited when I have first heard of The Mind Museum.  Science is not exactly my most favorite subject but I love going to museums, any museums, that is.

Here’s a short overview of the museum, taken from their website:

The Mind Museum concept is uniquely Filipino. Our exhibition takes off from a narrative that presents science in over 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories. The exhibition spans nature in scale, from the smallest thing in nature to the largest and everything in between: Atom, Earth, Life, Universe and Technology.

Almost all the exhibits in The Mind Museum are originally designed by Filipino artists and fabricators who worked closely with scientists here and abroad to execute science principles or facts clearly and beautifully.  

There are also two outdoor areas to continue discovery: Science-in-the-Park and the JY Campos Park.

It’s the Last Quarter of the Year So I Thought I’d Share Some Random Stuff

octoberTime flies too quickly! I’ve got a million project that I want to do but unfortunately, I only have at least 15 waking hours a day. I wish I had 36 though… it’s almost the end of the year and I plan to finish my Interior Decorating Course before the year ends. Yep, you read it right. I’m taking an online class since I can’t afford (financially and schedule-wise) to enroll in a local design school.

ashworthWhy Interior Decorating Program and not Interior Design? Well, I love decorating, naturally. I think there are enough interior designers in the country and I want to tap a niche market. What that is, I will talk about in another post. Haha! Sorry for the tease. :) Anyway, I’m on the third part of my course  and I really hope I could spend more time studying and researching. And when I say research, I mean on field and not online.kenyaANNNND this month, Kenya is turning ONE! A couple of her teeth finally showed up, Hooray! A few more months and I will have a little bit of freedom. I still haven’t decided how long I’m going to breastfeed her exclusively though.

That’s it! I just want to keep a positive outlook this month. The past few months are quite stressful. Hope you’ll have a productive last quarter!
