baby talk and white squirrel

Two things I discovered yesterday and today.

One: Babies Have Their Own Universal Language

One, from Oprah, babies have their own language; and it is a universal language. They produce sounds which are their way of communicating with us adults. According to the an Australian mom, Priscilla Dunstan, babies zero to 3 months old communicate with us with 5 sounds (distinct sounds when they cry). They are:
  • Neh = "I'm hungry."
  • Owh = "I'm sleepy."
  • Heh = "I'm experiencing discomfort."
  • Eair = "I have lower gas."
  • Eh = "I need to burp."

Sounds amazing! Better try listening to your babies. You may go to Oprah's site for more reads.

Two: The Rare White Squirrels Can Be Found in the Philippines

From Jessica Soho Reports (GMA7, Philippines), I discovered that there are squirrels in the Philippines! And, that the rare white squirrel can also be found in the Philippines! And that the Pilipino word for squirrel is "bising". This "puting bising" or white squirrel can be found in the island of Biton, Palawan. That's cool! That's something to be feel good about!

I googled the Net and found out that there are also white squirrels in the USA and Canada. You can check it out at or Based on their write-ups, they used the word "sightings". So that means that white squirrels are rare.

I-Witness's "Minsan Sa Isang Taon" By Kara David

A beautiful documentary that subliminally projects an irony of life.

"Minsan Sa Isang Taon" weaved paper bills (cash, money) to be the irony of abaca, also called Manila hemp. A year of hard work produced 20 kilos of abaca fibers. When sold, those fibers are worth 1000 pesos. Imagine earning 1000 pesos a year for a family of more than 5! Those cash bills that the hard-working man was holding were made of a few fibers of abaca compared to 20 kilos of fibers that he produced for a year. Quite an irony!

We perceive money as symbol of wealth; yet what it's made of is a symbol of indigence. What happens now to the truth that hard work is the key to success? Somewhere in between must be missing.

The abaca farmer is surrounded with gifts of nature - hills, tre…
