You might change your contact list after you will read this:

Her handbag which contained her mobile, credit card, purse..Etc….was stolen. 20min later when she called her hubby, telling him what happened. Husband says “I’ve just received your SMS asking about your Pin number. And I’ve replied a little while ago”.

When they rushed down to the bank. Bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen hand phone to sms “hubby” in the contact list and got hold of the pin number.

Within 20 mins he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.

Morale of the story:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, sweetheart, Dad, Mum etc………………and very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked thru SMS, CONFIRM by calling back.

Accordingly, fireworks will highlight the opening ceremony.

“For the first time, the shape of the Olympic Rings will be formed in the sky,” said Wang, adding that Olympic symbols and elements will be a part of fireworks’ designs with an aim to promote Olympic ideals.

Firing skills will feature compressive air launches, chamber pressure launches and computerized ignition technologies, employed for the first time in the display of fireworks, he told the media attending a press conference in Beijing.

To reflect the “Green Olympics” concept, some of the fireworks will use less smoking powder to minimize smoke and dust pollution, Wang said.

The designers intend to highlight the fireworks’ effect both on the ceremony’s stadium and larger areas around the facility so that the Olympic central zone will be an extension of the ceremony owing to the splendid fireworks. [link]

Miss USA Crystle Stewart fell down again during the evening gown competition, if you may recall, during the 2007 Miss Universe contest in Mexico City, Miss USA Rachel Smith also tumbled during the evening gown competition and became an unintended star on You Tube, where the video was shown over and over again. Like Smith, Stewart quickly stood up after her fall and continued on as if nothing had happened.

At last Yahoo made the website that I need, I checked the Yahoo Shine today and I really love it since it features all the articles, news and everything that I need to know as a woman, from food, housewares, love, career, fashion, entertainment, etc. I’m glad that I found a new haven today since I really feel bored in the office nowadays.

I like the articles they featured especially about parenting, home designs, love and relationship.
Here are some of the things I admired there:
