Pouting face

There was a pouting hex on Cj's face during his McDonald birthday six weeks ago. I don't know what triggered it but as his guests started arriving he was no longer in the mood. Perfect timing. Nowhere in this entire blog can a post about his 5th birthday celebration be seen (nainis kasi ako). I speculate it was his cake. He didn't say so but he probably didn't like this girly cake. Well, excuse Mommy for not finding a Lion King or monster truck cake on time. This is not the Philippines, dude where elaborate Goldilocks abound.

Anyway, where were we? Ah...pouting. A signal that something is wrong. (I talk with Cj like always). Unfortunately this one escalated to a tantrum which went on for more than an hour into the party. I didn't have the patience of Job for such behavior. I got short-fused here and gave him a secret telling off. The guilt made me promise him Hongkong Disneyland for his next birthday. That if he behaved. Nevertheless I have just gotten myself into something I need to fulfil, oops. And I thought I was organized. Life. A mom learns everyday.

Cj doesn't really look like he's in the mood to celebrate his birthday. Anyways, his next birthday will definitely be a blast, so mommy, you better prepare for that.

Si mommy pala may kasalanan nag promise ng disney land hehehehe well, kiddo you have to work first para may pang disney land. lol.

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…
