Bohol Tarsier

Bol-anon’s pride is an endemic fauna– The tarsiers.  This charming little creature is the smallest living primate in the world and is considered endangered.  It can fit into a child’s palm and a tail longer than its body weighing around 130 grams.

The most notable feature of the tarsiers is its enormous eyes, 150 times bigger than human eye.  Each eye is actually bigger than its brain.  Their eyesight is aided by the turning of their head up to 180 degrees right, and 180 degrees left.

They are nocturnal animals– asleep during the day and are active at night.  So during the day, while tourists visit and watch, their eyes are open but they’re actually sleeping.  They don’t close their eyes when sleeping.  They only close their eyes when they get stressed.  They don’t move that much.

Before, it’s allowed to touch the tarsiers while you take pictures with it.  But now, it has been prohibited by the government as it stresses these creatures that will lead to the cause of its death.  Tarsiers are suicidal, constantly banging their head on the branch when it gets upset until it dies.

The sites where one can visit tarsiers do not require payment but encourage visitors to give donation out of their kind hearts for these creatures’ sustenance.  Tarsiers eat insects like lizards, worms, crickets and grasshoppers.

TRIVIA:  The female gives birth to one offspring. The infant is born with its eyes open. The females carry their infants in their mouth. A new-born can already cling to branches and in less than a month after birth, it can start leaping.

To the first man I love… He may not be the most perfect dad in the world but he is my best dad.  Ever since I was a child, he’s not always with us.  He has to be away to provide the needs and wants for his family.  He may have few lapses and shortcomings but he still is my dad who does his best to provide for us and be “strong” to keep the family bond.

We are not very close although he wants us to be (every dad wants that, who doesn’t?!).  I’m sorry I can’t be a perfect daughter to you and not close to you.  But I want you to know that you’re my dad and I love you so much.  Maybe I’m not THAT expressive or perhaps I don’t know how to show it.

JOSIAS VELOSO DATOY— my dad and is proud to be his daughter. I love you pa… Happy Father’s Day!!!

How did she do it?? Amazing!!  Katy Perry changes 8 different costumes in the performance she made of her song “Hot N Cold” at the Gwinnett Center Arena last Tuesday, June 7 during the set for her “Teenage Dream” tour in Atlanta, Georgia.  She had the idea from America’s Got Talent’s magician contestants  who made a trick on it.  They had to make a nondisclosure agreement signed by Katy Perry that she would not be giving away the tricks made behind.

That was pretty impressive, I should say!

The Alpha Life

CATS04 Alpha.  Air Traffic Controller aspirants.  These faces dream and determine to get through the training course and become full-pledged Air Traffic Management Officers or Air Traffic Controllers.  The training is tough but fun.  They take random pictures & doze off in the middle of the class, have tardiness, staff-greeting  & air conditioning unit issues, request for breaks every after 30 minutes to an hour and plan a regular Friday-booze-night-weekend-off.  CATS04 study hard but party harder. LOL!  The Friday group came into existence as early as the 2nd week.

For just a month, these people have bonded.. aim to stay and graduate solid until the end of the training.  What’s nice about this batch is that they form friendships and make sure that no one gets “washed out”.  They help, encourage and look after each other to keep their number from the first day until licensing.  All the best CATS04 Alpha!  We’ll make it!!!
