I had actually committed myself to a bit of charity work in Singapore….in the Summer of 1992. My ship had pulled into Singapore for a two-week stay, and some of us were asked if we wanted to spend a morning with some children at a local orphanage. Several of us went and had a great morning with our new friends. If I recall, we did some painting and light renovation work, but it was still a great experience. When you have the time, try giving some time to others.
Let’s give peace a chance.
Update: Trump has announced that he will not be meeting with Kim Jung Un in Singapore as planned, due to threats and rhetoric by the North Korean government. Hope this doesn’t derail the North-South Summit, but I wouldn’t be surprised, as South Korea had a role in the war games last week, with the US.
Children’s Day in Japan is on May 5th, so everyone is getting a jump-start on the festivities! We have to decorate for Alex, as well!!
This is my first story to be published in mainstream media, and I’m pretty proud. I had contacted Coconuts Media about publishing an interview, and ended up writing a story for them, instead. One condition…it had to have a Philippine angle to it. I only had a week, so I wrote what I write best, with some Philippine elements throughout the story. I was tempted to go on and on with the story, but I kept it short this time. Many thanks to James Ong for this opportunity, and to Praew Tansanga for the wonderful illustrations! I hope everyone in the Philippines and beyond enjoys this story. Please share on social media!!
This is so amazing…good news for the people of Bangladesh!!
