-a sour soup. a distinct Filipino comfort food for the soul. as unique as its people. as diverse as its culture. a blend of ingredients prepared to its sour perfection, exciting the palate, soothing the nerves, rousing the senses, bringing back memories of scenic greens, warm sun, blue waters, and the solace of home.

Interested in Finding Out When You're Going to Die?


S

ince it is All Hallows Eve, I get to talk morbid! I'm sharing an interesting web find. Click on the DeathClock.com. "It's the internet's friendly reminder that life is slipping away," says the website. All you need to do is enter basic information such as date of birth, sex, BMI (Body Mass index- you can look it up from there.) and habits on smoking and your view in life (pessimist, optimist, sadist or normal?!); voila, it tells you the exact date when you are going to die!

Except that, you won't actually believe on it yet it IS fun to do! It is not meant to be taken seriously because whether you are a believer or not in the supreme being, nobody can predict exactly one's death. Only time can tell and it's not going to reveal itself until, yeah- it's time.

I found the website dark and twisted and morbid but all in a good way. It is inventive for what it offers. So what if it's all bulls**t as others see it? It still draws people to try. It takes a creative mind to come up with one! Curiosity sometimes doesn't kill, it drives traffic! This site's been around like forever... it will perhaps outlast us all! I'm putting my EDD (Estimated Date of Death) for posterity sake: 4 may 2053... Check out yours and don't forget to invite me on your funeral! I'll see you in mine (evil smile)...©
