Once again it's time to wear a glittering gown and go up the stage to receive awards :-) Three lovely ladies passed me these awards: Genejosh, Beth Moreno and Chris. To them I say thank you. I appreciate your thoughfulness. You are sweet. I'm so glad to have met you in the blogosphere.

The Kreative Blogger Award asks the awardee to list 7 things that he/she loves. Here are mine:
*My boys: Ceejay and Mozart
*My life online
*Travel!
*My fondest dream (getting there hopefully)
*Shoes and clothes that make me look like my figure hasn't been blasted off yet =)
*Food, glorious food!
*Books, music and movies

When I posted these awards, I noted that this is going to be updated for the bloggers I am going to pass these awards on to. Here, finally is the said update:


There are two excellent bloggers that I have recently met and I want to pass these awards to them: they are Anya and Rajesh. The Blogger Buddy Award is for the rapport we seem to have developed among us since we met. I love your blogs and I visit them from time to time, hence the Loyal Follower Award is also for you two. You have many followers to whom you
may also want to pass this award on to.

For my love of travel, India, being very significant on my list, and for the cheer I always feel everytime I visit Kareltje's site, I hope Rajesh and Anya respectively, pick up the Favorite Blogs Award. Your blogs have many fans because of obviously the creativity in them. It is for such reason that I am also passing the Kreativ Blogger Award to both of you.

Thank you Anya and Rajesh for commenting on these awards earlier, but I am not passing them to you because you left comments. You truly are the deserving recipients of these awards. I am glad we met on the blogosphere. Here's to more good blogging in the future!

Hazel, Thank you. I appreciate it a lot. I have stopped passing on these awards since we started getting negative feedback from some of our blogger friends.

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.
