Hats and a Hormonal Mama Dolphin


Hats? I just don't use them. I love them :-) For my Cj though and like many other children, hats are much more than just head ornaments. I'm posting a few shots of Cj with his head protection on.

Last year when several relatives from PI flew in to visit us, we took them to Huahin, Thailand's summer capital. The heat there could really burn during April and May but other than that, it's a great place to relax. We rented a neat beach house and toured a few nearby sights. We drove up a hill and had lunch there

Just this summer we (with friend and former college roommate Dr Nillos) visited the sharks at the Underwater World :) then we proceeded to the Sanctuary of Truth, that edifice behind us. To explore it, we had to wear safety hats which were a bit heavy. Cj, uncomfotable with his, was fidgeting

We were supposed to watch a dolphin show after roaming the Sanctuary, but the main star, a pregnant dolphin, refused to come out, according to Management. They apologized. We dropped by the resort restaurant on our way back. Cj ordered food that he couldn't consume so I took care of it for him. This is how he looks while watching me finish what he started. With the heavy safety hat he was forced to wear and the dolphin show that never was, what kid wouldn't look like he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders? =)


And this was in Kanchanaburi, at Hindad Hot Spring. I tell yah I love hats! (lol)

Phaeton

Remember that 1995 Sense and Sensibility scene in which dashing Mr. Willoughby recklessly drives a phaeton around town with Marianne Dashwood? The novel was published in 1811.  Fast drag your imagination to 2011 and the two lovers are today's rich hunk and a happy-go-lucky, attractive chick speeding on say, a Lamborghini Reventon. In Pride and Prejudice, obsequious Mr Collin declares, "she (Lady Catherine de Bough) is perfectly amiable, and often condescends to drive by my humble abode in her little phaeton and ponies." pha·e·ton   (f -tn) n. 1.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility . Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author. Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare . Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen 's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S . As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 end
