Who Won the Grand Lotto Jackpot?



I saw in the news last night that the lotto winner of 742.1M got a little help from a machine to pick numbers. Machine aided picks cost more than 20 pesos. It made me think that the winner has the money to spend for gambling considering he can pay for lucky picks. Aside from that, PCSO confirms that the winner is from Luzon. Later this day, I heard a news that the lucky lotto outlet who will receive a percentage from the jackpot is from Subic.

The lotto roller coaster ride actually made people frantic, crazy and lose their marbles. After the PCSO announced that there is one winner and clues were given, people started to have speculations. One speculator is Tim Yap--a broadsheet columnist, showbiz talk show host, self professed fashionista and eventologist (what the hell was that?). He proudly twitted that the winner is Miko Morelos, a reporter from Philippine Daily Inquirer. He even twitted that the poor guy has a twitter account. Of course, Morelos's account was flooded by tweets from anonymous persons which made him block his account. A sane, sensitive and sensible person obviously knows that the reason why lotto winners' names are not disclosed is for security reasons. To clarify, Morelos did not even place his bet so his chances of him winning is nil. Because of Yap's tweet, he put Morelos and his family in jeopardy.
Even if Morelos denied that he did not win... do you think the extortionist, kidnappers, hold-uppers and other known criminals will believe him? It is a wild goose chase and criminals will start the chasing with Morelos.

I hope that Morelos and his family will survive this ordeal unharmed.

Lessons learned... know when to keep mouth/fingers shut, verify information, keep secrets secret and make common sense common.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
