A New Found Friend

Last week I had a chance to teach a couple who wanted to learn English more. They came from Brazil, they are friendly, and easy to work with. They loved to help and reach out to others in love. We brought them to different places too like Songkhla Beach, the known mountain near our place. We also tour them around the city one night and let them see what's happening during night time. We had good time together. A lot of times I cooked food for them because they don't know what to buy and cook here, as if still a foreign land for them. Our sons especially AJ, would usually ask the wife to be with him while watching tv, or a movie. One time, we prepared and broiled fish, shrimps and squids, they loved it. They used to broil fish in Brazil and they missed it. So it's a time of recalling what they have eaten when they were in their country. According to them, their country is safe. All the nations of the world find comfort - they are a friendly people, and countries have their own community in Brazil. If a foreigner wants to make business, it's so easy, and besides foreigners will pay the same amount that the locals are paying. Foreigners and locals have may things in common. And many foreigners stayed in their country and find themselves staying for a longer time. Foreigners find comfort and can make business to earn a living so easily. Another thing that I've discovered was that, when the locals would apply for a divorce, it will only take 1-3 days. I was shocked because in the Phil. it will take 6 months to a year or more when a file for annulment is being processed and approved. Anyhow, my new found friend with her husband were great people. They have seen a lot of people with different personalities, nationalities, and cultures. They were also blessed with friends. They loved to help the poor and needy.

Four People with Super Memory???

I would like to share this news because I was intrigue reading, lol! Are they still normal? These four were subject of a study at the center for Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at the University of California. Try to see if you know them...

1. Bob Petrella

bobA Los Angeles based producer for the Tennis Channel, Bob Petrella may remember every number in his cell phone, but it’s his ability to recall sporting events that’s most remarkable. Give him a date, like March 30, 1981, and he could tell you not only that it was the day Reagan was shot, but also that Indiana beat North Carolina for the NCAA championship that evening. Even more impressive: when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers, his favorite team, you can show him a single freeze frame from most any game that he’s seen, and he can tell you not only the date of the game, but the final score.

According to a piece on ABC news, Patrella “remembers all but two of his birthdays since he turned 5. He recalls where he was and what he did with high school buddies. Grainy images of the 1970s are vivid pictures in his head. ‘I remember all my ATM codes,’ he said. ‘I remember people’s numbers. [I] lost my cell phone Sept. 24, 2006. A lot of people, if they lost their cell phone, they would panic because they have all these numbers. I didn’t have any numbers in my cell phone because I know everybody’s numbers up here [in my head].’

2. Jill Price

jillProbably the best known of the four, Jill Price has described her ‘gift’ as “nonstop, uncontrollable and totally exhausting.” She was the first to be diagnosed with the condition, and recently published a memoir, The Woman Who Can’t Forget. Price remembers most details of nearly every day she’s been alive since she was 14 and compares her super memory to walking around with a video camera on her shoulder. “If you throw a date out at me, it’s as if I pulled a videotape out, put in a VCR and just watched the day,” she has said.

Like Bob Petrella, Price calls California home, though working as an assistant at a Jewish religious day-school, she’s about as far from Hollywood as you can get. And although people she meets at parties are impressed with her ability to remember everything from the date of the Lockerbie plane crash (December 21, 1988) to the last episode of Dallas, (May 3, 1991), in her memoir, she describes super memory as a nuisance, partly because she can’t seem to forget painful events, like when someone she was crushing on rejected her.

3. Brad Williams

bradFor every Jill Price, there’s a Brad Williams, a Wisconsin radio anchor who embraces his super memory and enjoys having it tested. Ask him what happened on November 7, 1991, and he’ll tell you that it was the day Magic Johnson announced he was HIV positive. But Williams does not stop there. “It was a Thursday,” he once said in an MSNBC piece. “There was a big snowstorm here the week before.” Unlike Bob Petrella, Williams has a tough time with sports, but excels at pop-culture trivia. For instance, he could name you every Academy Award winner and even nailed all five questions in the category “1984 Movies” when he appeared on Jeopardy! in 1990.

Although the folk at the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at the University of California, Irvine don’t agree, Williams says he never saw his ability as anything out of the ordinary. “Growing up, I never really had reason to think I wasn’t like everyone else,” he has said. A feature-length doc on his life, titled Unforgettable, is presently in production.

If you’re interested in the subject, remember to check it out once it hits theaters.

4. Rick Baron

rickA Cleveland native, Rick Baron came out and announced his super ability directly to USA Today, after reading a piece the newspaper published on Jill Price. Unlike Price, Baron uses his super memory to win stuff. Although unemployed, he’s extremely resourceful and is constantly entering, and winning trivia contests. His list of rewards include restaurant gift cards, tickets to sporting events, even all expense paid vacations (Baron has won 14 of them). Baron claims to remember every detail of his life since the age of 11, and is usually pretty successful at remembering the day-to-day going all the way back to when he was seven.

According to the USA Today piece on Baron, his sister claims he shows signs of hardcore OCD. “He organizes and catalogs everything. He even keeps his bills in order of the city of the federal reserve bank where they were issued and also by how the sports teams in that city did.”

What do you think? Can you imagine being one of them? I was amazed by these four, but sad to say, even their bitter and sad memories, they could not forget.

Yummy Sunday

We are blessed with friends around the globe. Anywhere we go, friends are just around. Last Thursday, another friend brought us to Mc Donalds, wow what a treat. Every time, we visit Mc Donalds, we just ate the cheapest burger and pies with ice cream for the kids. But last Thursday, they ordered this set of lunch to enjoy. For us, we don't buy these because our budget is limited. But they blessed us and let us enjoy. What a treat! This is my Yummy Sunday for this week. More food here to enjoy with Boogie.

Yummy Sunday

We were invited to a baby shower last Saturday by Gene who's sister- in- law Nona is prepared to give birth next month. We came late because we had our prayer retreat the night before so we were not able to join the "pakulo", some games that they enjoyed most. However, we are glad that we ate this yummy food. It's an ice cream cake. It's so yummy and tasty. So I decided to post this today on my Yummy Sunday this week. You can also view some Yummy Sunday photos with Bogie. Try it and see and have fun!

Busy Days

I had been busy this week and I find it hard to visit all my friends here. I couldn't even write on my blogs whewww... I was busy as a teacher, a mother, a wife and a housewife. I was teaching in the morning, afternoon and evening. Then I have to wake up early, cook food for my family, and hurry to teach. What a week! This coming week I'm still busy with my classes and I'm not sure if I can write, but I will try if not tired. Hope you all understand. I will try to cope up and visit you all next time. Please bear with me. Every time I went home, I wanted to rest and relax. My day is always full. Thanks to all of you.

Then Sings My Soul Saturdays

I love Hymns. This is one hymn I love most, "HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW". Music had a greater part in my spiritual growth. It helps me know more about my Creator, Savior and Master. It was used by the Lord to bless others too for HIS GLORY. I missed this meme. Maybe some of you have read my latest blog about our urgent trip back to the Phil. And I wasn't able to visit my blog for a month. Anyway, glad to be back and be a part of today's meme. Visit Amy with Signs, Miracles, and Wonders and be blessed.

Friday Photo Flashback

Friday Photo Flashback
I missed this meme for quite sometime. I wasn't able to join again due to many circumstances that is beyond my control. So I tried to check my blog today. Glad to be back again. I was trying to look for some photos back 10 years ago but failed to find. So I just placed this one. I had my new look few months ago. It only happened once and only for a day. I love this look, I only paid for $.50 and had it for a day, huhuhuh! But it looks good and wanted to have it again. Maybe sometime later when I have extra time. If you wanna join just visit More Than Words with Alicia.

Miss Universe 2009

The other week I saw Miss Universe Pageant in the news and I checked on some of the contests like the Question and Answer portion. According to one of the judges, this year most of the contestants were beautiful and great ladies. Maybe they find it hard to choose which one is the best. While I was looking and listening to the question and answer portion, which is the best part for me, Phil. contestant was also good and done her job well. Though she was not chosen.... Other contestants have done great too. All of them did their best. The pageant was held at Bahamas. According to most of the ladies during the interview, they loved the place because it has surrounded by waters and it was a cozy and cool place. During that time I wanted to write about Miss Universe 2009, but I wasn't able to blog because I was not feeling well that time. I'm glad to have some free time today. So, I decided to blog again. Every year I was waiting for this kind of event. Maybe some of the ladies would agree with me. We love to gaze this event, though we're not part of it.
