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)

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.

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…

Girl reading

The pictures space in my e-library contains a folder named Anastasia's Looking Glass.  It is where I store photos that inspire me. Recently I stumbled upon this website called vi.sualize.us where you can "bookmark your favorite images and share them with everyone." So far I found 12; (thought I'd include one of me to complete the list as I like it the way it is), and I'm sharing all with you.  A link to the source is placed before each photo. My 'favoritest' are nos. 2 - 13. Got yours?
