Star-Spangled Journey: Hurricane Irene Unleashed


It's been a long time since I last posted an entry on my Star-Spangled Journey series. Work, more travels and procrastination contributed to too much backlog. And sooner or later, I'll find myself still blogging about a travel which happened a year ago. So I guess I better get going, posting one entry at a time. So here goes.

I thought the earthquake in D.C. was enough to make this trip one for the books. But no, there was another surprise from Mother Nature.

We've been monitoring Hurricane Irene even before we left Boston. We wanted to make sure that we'd get to our destination and not be stranded somewhere in the East Coast when Irene unleashed its wind power.

Geek is Cool at The Mind Museum

                                                      The Mind Museum


I was in Manila in April and instead of heading out on a road trip to the suburbs or spend a day at the theme park, my friends, brother and I decided to become geeky and trooped to The Mind Museum in Taguig. We arrived a couple of hours before the next batch of museum-goers would be allowed entry to the museum. We bought tickets for the 12:00 noon session and then proceeded to the Science in the Park just outside the museum. It was no ordinary park. Every installation is a lesson on science, mathematics, music, water and living things. A fun way to learning new things for the young and old. And we didn't mind the scorching heat.
