Charmed Date




They say that this day is a milestone! A date like 080808 happens on a thousand years only. So just like what I aim for this blog, I want to capture this bliss of day and immortalized the memory through this webby ink. To start with, I know many couples will seal the deal today. I read that most Chinese couples are getting married today.

And now that I have mentioned Chinese people, Beijing Olympics will start today. Our proud delegates with Manny Pacquiao as the forefront mane are now out to try and prove the great talents we have. The government laid a good motivation for our athletes. I hear GMA will give 15 million for every Gold winner. Please correct me if I’m wrong. All kudos to the Philippine team!

Also today, Sharon Cuneta will grace the Araneta Coliseum for her 30th Anniversary Concert. See just how long enduring Sharon’s charisma is to Pinoys. She is still one of the top celebrity endorser for brands. Celebrities are looking up to her achievements and of course, her fans are transcending from way way back up to the contemporary. Ikaw ba, maka-Sharon ka din? He He He.

Contrary to the popular belief, Feng Shui experts are actually saying that 888 can bring some bad luck this year. It was defied by Beauty business diva Vicky Belo, who is celebrating 18 years of bringing science of beauty in the country. According to her, she cant do anything if she happened to start business on this day.

So whether it is lucky or not, I have to say that this day is quite a day to start or end something; To celebrate or mourn an idea; To accept or deny a perception; and to live or die in some beliefs. Hmm, a little poetical eh? Nah, better end this post now.

I like the way you developed the topic to include Sharon and Vicky Belo.kkk.

I don't also believe in Feng Sui but I guess it's going to be a good day since I could watch another Olympic opening ceremony.

Anyways, I don't like Sahron Cuneta before but the more I learn about her, the more I realize how good a person she was. Di sya plastic and she is really kind...

my 080808 was just normal. this month, it's the first night that i went straight home afterwork.. from august 1 i've been constantly hanging out at malls.. august 1 and 2 in trinoma, august 3 in shangrila, august 4 in greenhills, august 5 to 7 in sm north edsa.

on 080808: ok, the main reason why i went home is because my car isn't working well. i have to send it to chevy again which means i gotta take the cab on the way home, and since it's a friday, i don't wanna mess up with friday weekend madness. another reason is that i wanna watch the opening ceremonies of the beijing olympics, dubbed as the grandest opening yet. well, i was satisfied with the opening..

on sharon: how did the concert go?

on 080808 being a lucky number: actually it is a traditional chinese belief that 8 is infinity and it means to be lucky. however, basing on the chinese calendar, 080808 falls on the 7th month of the chinese calendar, which is the traditional "ghost" month. this is the month "similar" to our all saints day. they say spirits are up on this month, and so most if not all chinese practicing buddhist tradition make an offer on this month, or what we call alay. hence, some feng shui experts believe this isn't a lucky 080808.
