According to him, it was an honour to meet Mr. Kimura whom he called “an exceptional person” and is only the third man in the history of the world to reach the age of 115, reports said.
How come he’s still doing well at his age? As posted on his Facebook page, here’s the reason why:
Kimura is health conscious and active. He wakes up early in the morning and reads newspapers with a magnifying glass. Also, he enjoys talking to guests and follows live parliamentary debates on television. According to him, small portions of food are the key to a long and healthy life.
Hmm..good job Mr. Kimura!

The much-awaited Apple iPhone 5 went on sale in the Philippines this Friday, December 14, 2012 with Globe Telecom and Smart Communications.
I considered myself lucky to own iPhone 5, although at first I encountered problems. Last week, I made reservations to Globe Telecom so that I can pick-up the handset during the launching. They confirm my reservation and I was advised to pick up the phone at Globe Tower Building, Valero Makati around 11 am.
I was kinda excited and was there by 10 am. When my number was called (number 84), the Globe representative told me that they only accept those with postpaid-plans, and it was in Fort where prepaid users should go. Oh-emm! But, she then told me she will give me the handset but it will be color black since white is out-of-stock. I insist that I reserved for color white and they accept my reservation, plus the venue where I should get the handset, including the total amount I need to pay. She then told me if I’m willing to wait, I could have my preferred color since new handsets will be delivered. Luckily, there is. What a relief!
These are the features of new iPhone 5:
- 4-inch Retina display
- Ultra fast wireless
- Powerful A6 chip– delivers up to twice the CPU performance and renders graphics up to twice as fast
- 8-megapixel iSight camera with panorama
- iOS 6– World’s most advanced mobile OS with new Maps, Facebook integration, Passbook and more.
With weight of 3.95 ounces (112 grams), iPhone 5 is lighter than previous iPhone models.
