50 years

June 1st 1960 – that’s the day my parents got married. and you can say…the rest is history!

Marking this important event in their life, the kids (yes – all 6 of us) together with the spouses and all the grandchildren prepared , organized and mitigated the event to remember such momentous event.

After months and months of preparation, weeks and weeks of practices and endless nights of editing, tweaking , hair pulling and everything else, the event came. Uncles and cousins from Miami , New york and Montreal came. Brother and family from California spent bonding time with siblings . All in alll……? It was a success. I asked my Nanay if she was having fun…and she said yes. I asked Tatay if he was happy and he said yes. What else can I ask for.

Thank God it only happens once in a lifetime!!!!

Happy 50th my dear parents! We love you!!!

And here is what me and my daughter were so excited to open, what little presents which brought big shrieks of laughter and giggles . Definitely all smiles. Take a look at them yourself and let me see those smiles on your faces.

Time Traveller’s wife – repost

This is a repost from my other blog

I have always been fascinated by time travel. Ever since I first watched the movie “Somewhere in Time” (starring Superman, I mean Christopher Reeve and Jane Eyre, oops, I mean Jane Seymour), any other movie that has a time travel theme would get me interested to watch it. And so when I first ran into the title of this book, I simply had to read it.

I just finished reading The Time Traveler’s wife. It is a beautiful story. A love story.

A man with a time-traveling gene uses his innate abilities to visit his lover at different points in her life.

As I read the book page by page, I felt I was somehow transformed as Claire waiting for my Henry to come home. Feeling the hopes and the joys of being in love with someone who changes in front of me dramatically in years of my life. The love was so intense, I felt I could be there and not regret it because of such undying love given and received. Or sometimes I felt as though I was Henry travelling in the past and at the same time waiting so much to be in the presesnt.

I know I am such a hopeless romantic. I laughed and I cried in this story. I travelled back in time and into the future with Henry. Although I was not the author, I wished I could change the words so I can let the moments linger a little longer and the time spent between Henry and Claire can be prolonged.

But I suppose any story must have an ending. Was it sad? Was it happy one? I think it all depends on how you perceive it as the reader.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt made headlines when they bought the film rights to Niffenegger’s novel before it was released to the public. Imagine if they had the chance to film the movie? It is supposed to be in production now, but I’m not really sure who will play the main characters. I just have to wait and see.

I can only write about how I felt towards this book. If you want to read a better and more professional review, Click here.

Finally had a chance to bloghop onto some of my blog links and visited Written Inc.

I thought this is a pretty cool thing he has going on photography called .
Thematic Photographic

This week’s theme is “Odd”

Searched into my photos and thought this looks pretty odd.
This is actually the first time I saw this photo. My hubby must have taken it during one of his walks.

You never know where your balloon will land, so better not release any into the air for it will end up somewhere that might hurt the environment.

Sharon Mega Thirty concert in Toronto

Sharon Cuneta Mega 30 Concert tour went to Toronto last Sunday, June 07 2009 with special guest, her daughter KC .

Together with my sister and my cousin, we enjoyed the concert at Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

From Dear Heart, to PS I love You, Ikaw, Bituin Walang Ningning, Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok ko to Kahit Konting Pagtingin, I was singing with her all along. Sharon’s songs definitely brought so much memories.

Summer is almost here. Everything is growing.
More grass will show where the brown soil is. Have to wait…more rain…more sun!

Handwriting analysis

I’ve had this article stash out in my archive emails for a while now. I always thought it could be a good point of discussion someday. Well, today is that someday.

Not a lot of people write anymore with a pen and paper. Most of our letter or correspondence are through emails and we simply use the computer to write. However, for the few that still do, here are ….

10 Secrets Your Handwriting Might Reveal

Ever wonder what your handwriting says about you? A lot, a graphologist would say–and chances are, not all of it would be pretty. To give you a taste of the messages you may be sending every time you write a note, we’ve put together a list of ten handwriting secrets in the graphologist’s sack. Be warned, though: Graphology is too complex to be boiled down into universal nuggets. So, take these with a grain of salt (and don’t break out your prison flip-flops just yet).
1. Are your Us and Ws rounded on their bottoms? You’re sensitive and maybe poetic.
2. Do you cross your Ts in the middle or at the top? The lower you cross your T, the less ambition you have.
3. Do you loop your Cs at the top? Then, to quote Carly Simon, you’re so vain.
4. Are your As and Os tightly closed? Perhaps you’re hiding something.
5. Do your letters slant every which way? If so, then yikes. Only 10 percent of the general population has a wobbly slant–compared with 70 to 80 percent of convicted felons.
6. Do you have the “felon’s claw”? It’s another hallmark of the criminal, and it occurs when you bring a letter straight down, then attach a claw-shaped curve to its end–say when you’re writing the lowercase y.
7. Is your signature different from your regular handwriting? Then perhaps you’re putting on an act.
8. Do the connecting swoops between your letters droop? Maybe you have a martyr complex, and are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.
9. Is your handwriting spiky and angular? Relax. There’s no need to be so tense.
10. Are your letters a bit squatty? If they’re biggest in the middle zone, and don’t extend much up or below the baseline, then you’re perhaps a bit childish. The Disney logo, based on Walt Disney’s handwriting, is a good example of this.
