Favorite mommy moments

We're posting our favorite Mommy Moments entries this week. Mine are those that have something to do with my interests: the entries from precious gift and music themes. But then with all the other interests and the fun times it's hard to choose really. I am so glad I can say that because bad days like when Cj throws a tantrum drive me crazy. I have a kind of slow time recovering from emotions out of upsetting moments that involve Cj. But the advice goes, "dwell on the positive" so dwell I try.

Here's a photo taken at Cj's school. As I mentioned on my post last week, Cj does not like his pic taken nowadays. This was no different with his back to the camera. I asked his dad to click anyway because I want Cj to have a visual record of his first teacher. This was taken after he and his classmates danced for their mommies during the Queen's birthday which was also Mother's Day here.

Poor Cj

He looks so cute !!!
Thom said…
You dwell very well my friend. That is just a beautiful picture. You are stunning in looks as you are with your personality. That darn little CJ...we gotta break this habit of him not wanting his picture taken. LOL Have you shown him the end results? Maybe if he saw that he isn't facing the camera or something it might make him think twice. YOu know if you put it in a good way to him...But there again, he might grow up like me and just absolutely HATE to have my picture taken LOL. Oh the joys of mommyhood. Nice made up word don't ya think? LOL :)

what is it with boys? May stage talaga na ganyan. My son went thru that stage and we had to talk to him and tell him how many shots exactly. Or else, hindi din haharap sa camera. But he'll outgrow it soon. Don't worry mommy. :)

Minsan boys are shy. Girls naman likes to pose!
Chris said…
my little girl went through that stage and still is camera shy at times... :) happy mommy moments!

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…


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…
