Liu Lang Xin Shi (Never say goodbye).
Hitchens, I will never abandon you.

Dawkins, the cat I took in from the street a month ago, has settled in nicely.
Isn’t she adorable? And, like her namesake, she’s extremely smart. She never says anything unless she absolutely memes it.
Expect more of her (and of Hitchens, of course) soon.
For now, remember to use your head and spread the RED!
Yesterday afternoon, I came home to a quiet apartment and a dog that was happy to see me. Everything was normal except there were black stains on the floor. I couldn’t really tell what the stains were. First I thought they were remnants of dog poop, but they were jet black and flat on the floor like paint. Later, my girlfriend dispelled the mystery – it was shoe polish.
I’ve read about it a lot of times on books about raising dogs – when they get bored, they become destructive. I don’t know how Lord Hitchens did it, but he managed to get the shoe polish from where we kept it, remove the cap, and have himself a party. The stains weren’t just on the floor, too. There were stains his bed and on his beautiful, bright gold coat.
So, as any responsible pet-parent would do, I sat my three-month old Golden Retriever down and we had a nice little talk. When I asked him why he dealt with his boredom by giving our floor Dalmatian spots, he explained that he only wanted to make sure that the floor was clean and shiny by the time I got home.
I thought, “Yeah, right!” Although no sane person will buy an alibi like that, no person in his right mind can stay mad at a dog with a face like this either.
I’ll let you off the hook just this once, young Lord. But if you use the wrong polish on the floor again, we’ll have to stop agility training – we’ll concentrate all our efforts on you learning how to read.
And just like that, a guilty Lord Hitchens Lannister walked away with a royal pardon by the sheer cuteness of his face.
The day we brought Lord Hitchens Lannister to his new home.
The Lord’s first meal at home. A messy eater, this boy!
His first trip to the vet. He ate some cotton balls that day.
4 pounds later…
Lord Hitchens and his pink bed.
Another four pounds later, he’s now a little too heavy to carry around.
But he was well-behaved at the vet’s.
He will be done with all his shots in two weeks. After that, the great outdoors!
Thanks for dropping by.
Spread The Red!

Did you know that the world is only approximately 6,000 years old? that humans and dinosaurs once co-existed? that in the beginning, there were no carnivores and all animals ate plants? and that, contrary to scientific consensus, the origin of life on Earth is known to man. Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis President, asserts that these are scientific facts. In 2007, he opened the Creation Museum so he could share these facts with the rest of the world.
I wish I could talk some more about Ken Ham’s non-sense; but since I haven’t been to his museum, I can’t give it a fair review now, can I? Yesterday, however, my girlfriend, Kat, our daughter, Hana, and I went to the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. If I failed to convince you that Ken Ham’s Creation Museum is a great place to take your kids, let me show you what The Mind Museum has to offer:
The Mind Museum, 3rd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
When you come in, you’ll be greeted by Aedi, the robot. She will talk about what the museum has in store for you.
Here’s Aedi explaining the house rules.
The museum is divided into five galleries. Each gallery tells a story:
The Story of Life
The Story of the Universe
The Story of Technology
p>You want to make sure you check out each gallery because they have really cool interactive exhibits.
The Story of the Atom
According to the museum’s website, this “is the gallery with the most interactive exhibits.” There’s even a science show where a guy in a lab coat performs cool experiments.
This is Hana looking at the structure of atoms and molecules.
Hana shows me how electricity and magnetism work together.
The Story of the Earth
Here’s where you will not be told that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. In this gallery, you will see plenty of evidence that prove how our planet as we know it today formed over billions of years.
Kat and Hana ask the T-Rex if it was once vegan.

The Story of Life
“All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful…” all evolve over time. (with my apologies to Cecil Frances Alexander for All Things Bright and Beautiful)
This gallery is all about life – how it is supposed to have started, how it evolved, and how some of the most amazing creatures live today.
Kat and Hana work together on the genes test. Make Richard Dawkins proud, girls!
You may not agree, but these are our great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents.
Evolutionary Biologist, Dr. Hana, demonstrates how life evolved from simple to complex.
The Story of the Universe
“Math, Science, History unraveling the mystery that all started with the Big BANG!” – The Big Bang Theory by Barenaked Ladies
Yes, unravel the mystery here. Rest in a space chair that can play the sounds of outer space. Simulate the phases of the moon. Control the revolution of the planets around the sun. Demonstrate Einstein’s General Relativity Theory with your left foot (or your right).
NASA Engineer Hana tests her Mars Rover prototype.
Astronaut Hana walks through the Tunnelcraft.
The Story of Technology
This is the largest gallery; it’s the only one on the second level. What I really like about this gallery is the exhibits show how technology can be used to take care of our planet.
Hana the Explorer.
Geologist Hana examines an oil rig model.
Hana explains how toilet plumbing works.
This is supposed to be physics or something.
If you still haven’t had enough fun after you’ve looked at all the exhibits in all five galleries, there’s a science park right in front of the museum.
Not only do they have regular slides, they also have a mobius slide.
This is me making bubbles to the tune of Frozen’s Let It Go.
All three of us had a lot of fun yesterday. Once Lord Hitchens, our dog, is done with his vaccinations, we’re coming back here and we’re taking him with us because, guess what, they have a dog park, too!
The best part for me was seeing Hana have a great time. Hana’s an adorable little girl who is in the autism spectrum. Sometimes I wish I could see the world through her eyes – it must be a wonderful world!
And now, a quote from Bill Nye:
I hope I was able to convince you that the Mind Museum is a great place to take your kids. I’m not affiliated with them in anyway so you know I’m telling the truth when I say it’s awesome! Check out their website. I also found a deal online that gives a 60% discount on tickets.
Happy 7th Birthday, Hana!
