Believe it or not - it is the coolest book ever!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ripley's Believe It or Not! for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” books. Who doesn’t? It’s fun to read and to learn about unbelievable stories and strange things from around the world.

Ripley Publishing recently came out with its latest annual Ripley's Believe It or Not! Download the Weird book.  And… are you ready for this? This all-new collection has a new twist – you can actually download the weird! How? Well, there’s an “App” for that! Yup, there is an App that allows hidden content in the book to Come Alive! And yes – it’s free! Just go to Ripleys.com and you can download the free App on iTunes and Android as a complementary accessory when you buy the new book from Amazon. How cool is that?

 

Wondering how does it work? Here’s how:

1. Simply point a smart phone or advanced iPod at the special oddSCAN™ logos in the book and see that story come to life with exclusive bonus content, including videos and images. It’s a one-stop portal that will transport readers deep into the hidden world of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” like never before.
2. Ripley fans will be thrilled to see that this newest title in the best-selling series has all the qualities that Ripley’s is known for. Download the Weird is jam-packed with an incredible array of crazy facts, stories, lists and interviews.
• Meet the world’s oddest couple: he swallows swords, hedge trimmers and umbrella handles while she hangs upside down and lifts lead weights by her hair!
• Learn why a California man has experienced more than 950 violent car crashes.
• See tourists risk life and limb to get their picture taken with an 18-foot-long crocodile!

3. A special pullout section provides readers with weird Titanic facts; another features the incredible real-life story of the Elephant Man. A dramatic gatefold pullout features panoramic photos of the home of “Weird Steve,” where every room is crammed with thousands of strange curiosities—it’s impossible to look at just once! And this is just a small preview of the strange and unbelievable stories and photos within the book.
 

Thinking of a perfect gift for those loved ones whose curiosity and sense of exhilaration for everything odd is insatiable this Christmas season? Hurray, the search is over but you better act quickly because this book will surely jump off the shelf fast not just because of its brilliant contrasting colored cover with eye-catching holographic foil and lenticular but because… believe it or not – it is indeed the coolest book ever!

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
