You can also check merriam.com and you’d see that traveller is a variant of traveler.
.
.
But the best explanation is found on seetheglobe.com
“As it turns out, both are proper. Traveler is used in the USA and Traveller in the UK. So it does not matter what you are, a traveler or a traveller, just go out there and travel … or something like that ….:!:”
.

Anyway, it’s not that I hate the US version but I’ve been using traveller since I was young.  I just get annoyed everytime the I get a spelling warning from wordpress or word.  You can just imagine how many red lines appear now on my screen. hahaha

Good Night from the Philippines… 10:54PM

Convo with Mr. James: “Pulse”

Yesterday, when I entered our classroom, Mr. James asked me to give him my hand. I asked him why then he said he was going to check my pulse.  I first give my right hand then my left afterwards.  He was very serious after checking my pulse. I was just smiling then he said that I have three weak points.  Stomach. Kidney. Liver.

I was shocked. Earlier that day I was having problems with my stomach. I already went to the bathroom twice before our class.  I asked him what should I do to strengthen those weak points. He reminded me that he already told me the answers.  Ahhh. he said before that yellow-colored fruit and vegetables are good for the stomach.  I actually forgot what fruit and vegetables are good for the kidney and liver.  I know red fruit and vegies are good for the heart.  I should ask him tomorrow.  Anyway, he also told me to have enough rest. He said that if we don’t get enough rest, our liver suffers. I told him that I only get 4-5 hours of sleep everyday. I can’t go to sleep early because I love using the internet.  Right now, its already 10:41PM and I need to wake up at 5:30AM tomorrow. hahaha

He said we should take care of our body.  I agreed.  He reminded me not to forget to exercise. He also said that we should not skip a meal everyday. We should eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on time.

Our body is precious so we should take good care of it. 😀
