Happy Birthday Michael. Michael Jackson "The King of Pop, is 52 years old today. The man is known all over the world and has a huge contribution in the music industry. He is best known with his moon walk dance, Thriller and Billie Jean songs.

Fans from different countries mourn his death last June 25, 2009 and today August 29, fans will celebrate his birthday. Even though he is no more, his music still lives on.

I stumble upon this old Pepsi commercial starring Michael Jackson. The commercial has a touch of Thriller and Billie Jean. I do not own any content of this video. Watch and Enjoy

RIP Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).

A typical family in the Philippines living under one roof is composed of the parents, which is a mother and a father, children and a lot of times we have this so-called extended family where the grandparents, uncles, aunties, cousins, live together with you.

The mother stays at home and takes care of the children and it is the father who earns a living but nowadays where the economy is so down and prices of basic commodities are up, even sending your children to school seems so unaffordable, the mother who is usually stays at home have to work also to help her husband with their livelihood. Since there are instances that grandparents or other relatives live with you, parents have to work double time to include the extended family in the budget. Filipinos are very family oriented so we don't mind if our relatives stays with us for a few months and even for years.

Here in the Philippines we have issues of unemployment so it is very common that one or even both parents are working abroad to receive a much bigger salary compared to working locally where the earnings is so minimal. Some mothers work as domestic helpers in Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the USA. The fathers also will work as Engineers, Construction workers, Seaman, Cook, Baker in countries like Dubai, Canada, Australia and the United Arab Emirates. Nurses and Caregivers also are the most in-demand jobs where a large percentage of Filipinos are employed abroad.
When parents worked abroad, it is the grandparents or the aunties who would take care of the children. I wonder what is the typical family set up in other races.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

Bank of America online banking have some problems today. Depositors cannot access their accounts online because their site is down and they are not only offline for Maryland, California and Michigan even from other states also. Different tweets about Bank of America are sprouting like mushrooms every minute in Twitter ranting about the current situation.

I tried to access the site 10 minutes ago, it looks okay but when I did it again just a minute had passed, their site is still not accessible. I learned that Bank of America online banking has been down for 4 hours now and  they are doing everything to restore their site.

Latest Update: Twitterer BofA_help who I believed is working at Bank of America tweets that the problem has been resolved now.

True Blood stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgard will grace the Rollingstone magazine cover September issue all naked and bloody. The cover looks racy and controversial but it is so relevant to True Blood's theme  which is about vampire sex.

The magazine is now available on newsstand.

The weather is gloomy today. From my window, I can see how happy the flowers are as they had enjoyed the rain last night. A cup of not so hot coffee with milk would complement the weather.

While browsing news over the web, a photo of President Obama swims with daughter Sasha off Alligator Point in Panama City Beach, Florida enticed me to read it. The 49-year old president really looks fit and healthy. I guess he just wants to show that the water is already clean after gallons of oil had spilled about four months ago.

Another issue that's being talk about is the shirtless photos of him, the last time he went to Hawaii. It became covers of newspapers and magazines.

Hmmm..I think he's body reflects a healthy lifestyle. He is in very good form. It's okay to swim shirtless, it's more awkward if he'll swim with shirts on.

How about you? What can you say?

Let's talk about it. .
