Saturday 9: Never Say Never Again

1. Do you like James Bond films? If yes, what’s your favorite?
~ lots, and I have a hard time choosing between For Your Eyes Only and Diamonds are Forever

2. Are you daring enough to go snorkeling in the water fountain at the mall?
~ not the mall but I did in James Bond Island in Phuket (Man with the Golden Gun filming location) as part of my honeymoon, and got my poor butt nipped by a fish that looked like it wore a distinctly red lipstick

3. Do you sometimes hate everything and everyone around you?
~ you'll get bored asking me about hate. I love answering nooooooooooo

4. Do you secretly or openly believe the world revolves around you?
~ why would it?...

5. Would you rather buy a moped or a Harley Davidson?
~ not buy. I ride mopeds, they're common on inner streets here. I'd like to see a bride riding a Harley to church and see the look on the priest's or minister's face

6. Do you water ski or ice ski?
~ jet ski

7. Tell us about the last time that you tailgated.
~ did it only twice in my life and am not sure which one was last: that afternoon in the Bangkok suburbs (lol) or that evening (not me on the wheel but I cheered the ex on) against his sister's Mercedes Benz. We didn't tailgate for the sensation. We did it to not lose sight of their older brother, 3 traffic lights ahead, who was buying us dinner in a luxury restaurant, its exact address we didn't have time to google earth

8. What was the last concert that you attended?
~ Phew! Air Supply 9 years ago, and many others over the years. The Hallelujah Chorus, does it count? But well, I was on stage lip-synching pathetic alto parts

9. What’s the most exotic food that you’ve ate?
~ I came close to tasting crocodile meat at ex-hub's country club and only because I was bored tailgating him from the golf cart. Sexy female caddies always seem to resort to flirting when they're bored too

Hi Hazel!
I loved your Bond choices.
There isn't anything much worse than following someone around while they play golf. OMG. I've so been there.

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.


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…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
