A Concert and a Trivia

Our Weekend Memoirs: Dionne Warwick Live in Bangkok
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

Sorting a visa problem doesn't have to be guantanamosh. The Thai Immigration Department gave me 7 days before they granted me a longer 365. I used the leeway making sure I didn't end up prosecuted as that's how the threat was stamped on my passport. So while our liaison officer was meeting lawyers, I was revelling in my Sunday night dreams with a hit maker.

One of the main things I bought the ticket for was a good video of a Warwick song that disappeared on youtube - I'll Never Love this Way Again. It felt good to finally hear it live and see the legend herself.

was brilliantly performed. David Elliott Warwick did a great job singing for Stevie Wonder and Elton John's parts with his famous mom.


Chette and I lingered for awhile in this area after the concert

and here's on our way out of Thailand Cultural Center, the concert venue.

Hmmmm still have a hankering for the ex do we? ROFLMAO. We have several of the same answers or were on the same wave length. Great minds. Soap, Veins, weight and a whole lot of yes no answers. This was sorta dumb but oh well. I didn't even add any pictures...too much crap to have to answer LOL. You have a coat LOL but the best was I'm every inch a woman. Love it. Great answers. And speaking of women. You lucky dawg, err woman LOL you. I had forgotten that you were getting to see Dionne Warwick. Did she know the way to San Jose as well? What a beautiful venue it was too. Glad you didn't end up a jail bird LOL. Have a wonderful Sunday :)
Hazel said…
LOL!!! I wouldn't remarry the ex even if it was only him and me left in this world waaahhhhhahahah!
Your idealweight was a brilliant one. And yes, Miss Warwick knew the way to San Jose. I actually thought of you when she sang it :)
Thom said…
ROFLMAO!!! i knew it but what about a million bucks? ROFLMAO!!! As I said we had some of the same answers. Kindred spirit I would say. I'm so envious of you getting to see her. I love her. I'm honored you thought of me. Oh yeah I just put that song in a meme answer LOL. No wonder. Can't get much pass this old man LOL.
Hazel said…
Some mistakes are costlier than a million bucks, Thom. Ok, I'll take the million bucks, but NOT the ex lol! Kindred spirit - I love that. I remember your San Diego answer on a meme :)

Dionne is one of my favorite all-time singers! The choices of songs you picked are my favorites too. I have never seen her perform live (hehehe, living so closed to the Hollywood).

I hope those ladies will be able to sort out your VISA.

Enjoy the week!
Bodhi said…
Fun answers and direct. You did great.
kalea_kane said…
I use to like The Bold and the Beautiful too, but lately I stopped watching in order to avoid the strain in my eyes from rolling them all the time. Loved the pictures too. Have a great week!

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:
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…

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?
