Sugar Plum Fairy Dances on Glass Harp

I was wired while I was preggy. An earphone was taped to my belly while its mate was plugged in my ear. Together my then unborn Cj and I listened to classical music. It was kinda difficult to choose a favorite as I loved all that were playing during those nine months. My favoritest is Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Nowadays I play it especially when I go a'neighboring in blogsville and Cj doesn't leave me alone. It's easier to send him back to his toys while I blog in peace.

Musical Monday is brought to you byJori and Diane. Head over to their sites to play along.

Oh how cool! This reminds me of that Sandra Bullock movie where she plays the glasses. :)

Now that's a creative way to play the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies! Nice choice -- especially when, like me, it's being played really early in the morning, LOL.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is my favorite composition from Tchaikovsky.
This man is very talented. The only thing I can do with a glass is drink out of it. lol

My girls and I love the Nutcracker. It sounds like Christmas to me, but for a totally different reason. My sister and I used to attempt to serenade our parents with wine glasses during the holidays. Of course, the results weren't quite the same.

Hi Anya, maybe Glass music is solely for humans :) My Mozart screams when I play Mozart on the piano, like he's screaming at me to stop playing his namesake 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:
Head over to Just About Anything for more wedding movies.


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…
