In the brighter side of life, today the first day of February 2016 formally starts the Leap Year. If you were born on February 29 and you are a senior citizen now but in reality you are still in your teen age years, this is the reason my friends say, when it is a leap. Don’t care and exert too much effort in running after your secret love because a leap year is a man’s world and the girls will come after you. This is one belief that is implanted in many men, so they treat girls like  your “shadow” ...you chase it, it runs away from you but leave it, it follows you. Nobody for sure can tell you where this belief originated not even in China, where superstition is a way of life or even India, where “yoga” and your “aura” play an important role in your physical bodies. Neither, in Africa where “voodoo magic” can be used to catch a girl of your choice. American Indians and many natives of Latin America employ “talisman” with super natural powers and in the Philippines, it is called “lumay”. All these things have supernatural powers that even science admit but it cannot explain, how they happen.

One day an old man was exercising in a gym when a beautiful sexy young girl passed by. He was mesmerized and called the gym instructor to ask him. What shall I do to have a friend like that young sexy girl? The gym instructor replied, I don’t really know, but in your condition perhaps your ATM can help you. Indeed, we have seen so many old men with sexy young girls as lovers and all of those old men are wealthy and influential. Money is indeed another form of “talisman”. Or, is it really love?

We heard of lowly employees with meager salaries, like truck drivers, tricycle drivers, construction workers, office employees, having mistresses. At times they bore illegitimate children with their mistresses. This is one unfortunate event that science cannot again explain because it is not money that maybe involved, maybe a little love, but many believe that it is “lust and carnal desire” and to seek personal satisfaction and happiness in the easiest way. Rule out “gold digger” as the cause because they have no gold to be dug.

This February, campaign period for national candidates will start and in a few week the local candidates will start their campaign. The best “love potion” that candidates will employ is money. With much money, they can buy their victory. This is one instance that money plays an important role in a campaign. Politics breaks all records of supernatural powers, they are for real and tangible. One that can be seen, touched and felt unlike “talisman” or “lumay”, whose powers cannot be seen or touched and felt it just happen like magic.

Scoop: The Chinese believe that money is an eight legged animal, don’t chase it you can never catch it. Just wait for it, because if money likes you it arrives in an instant as fast as when your were chasing it. But to be very sure that money will arrive, work for it and wait and do not be hasty. So many people met their misfortune for forcing their way to have money immediately. You may disagree but this is not a joke.
