Plus this blog post to put them all together! Well, I was offline for most of the day yesterday as I was catching up with my reading. That’s right! I’ve been interested in the Doomsday topic since I stumbled on it recently. No, I’m not jumping on the bandwagon to scare people, but I’m trying to read up and be informed on articles, news, and even videos about it. Who knows? The knowledge may come in handy…

Twelfth Planet: Book I of the Earth Chronicles (The Earth Chronicles)

I’m not surprised that Zecharia Sitchin’s The 12th Planet has been considered a bestseller. Even if it was written more than 3 decades ago, I find it to be a totally enjoyable book to read! It’s not for everyone though. If you’re interested in some “histories of the past” and have an open mind, go ahead and read the book. It’s like reading a documentary by National Geographic or Discovery Channel. It’s so interesting that I want to read all the other books in the series.

Then, there was the replay of Miss Universe 2012 on late night TV. If you don’t know, Miss Philippines won the 1st Runner-Up spot so yes, we are all interested. I think Janine Tugonon did a great job, esp. in the Q & A portion of the competition!

So towards the end of the show, we suddenly heard lots of fireworks going off! I even made some funny remarks about it to my daughter since I was wondering what’s with all the fireworks when it’s not even the New Year’s yet and it was past midnight that time!

The lights all went off for a few seconds. After which we started hearing fire trucks in the street below. So we rushed out to find out more about the commotion and saw huge smoke a few blocks away. I even managed to get a photo and video. It was pretty dark though since it was really late.

Binondo Fire 12-24-2012

I just learned in the morning that the fire was in a commercial building in the vicinity. Well, just the same, I didn’t sleep all that well last night as fire engines were passing by below practically the whole night. 🙂

And now, I will need to prepare for Christmas Eve dinner… so until then, have a Blessed and Merry Christmas! 😀 Talk later… ta-tah!
