C is for Christmas

Besides a five-year old child named Ceejay whom I love cheekiness, tantrums and all, I noticed that several heavyweights to me in terms of either fascination, physiological connection or sentimental value, come with names that start with letter C. Related one way or another, I enumerate them in thirteen sets. The final object in each set is not named but shown in a photo. Feel free to identify them. The obvious clues are they all begin with letter C and naming them is all for fun :)

1. chocolate cheese cake, coffee, cashew nut, corn and

2. cool companions, communication, colors and

3. C.S. Lewis, Chaucer and

4. cute, cheery, charming and

5. classical compositions, conductors, choirs, concerts and

6. chandelier, creative centerpieces and

7. chamomile, citrus, Crookshanks and

8. cypress, cottonwood and

9. cottage, Cinderella, and

10. calla lily, carnation and

11. cathedral, church and

12. chiffon, cashmere, cardigan and

13. carols, chimes, Christianity and of course

I know most I think, but are we supposed to answer here? That would kinda spoil the fun for everyone else.

My Thirteen is now posted...Find 'em HERE
Hazel said…
Anni, if you want, then yes, that's okay. I'm not just yet saying anything about whether a certain answer is the same as what's on my mind - in order not to spoil the fun :)

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…
