Musical Monday: I Know I Need to be in Love (Karen Carpenter)
Please scroll down for Monday Mayhem

There's this valentine joke among Filipino coeds that dooms those without a date on February 14th to a virtual firing squad. Venue for the 'execution' is always on a mountain peak, and those on 'death row' are required to hike up ala-Via Dolorosa. Well, yesterday I was on death row yet again, and like any law-abiding citizen, I climbed to the peak. In high heels and long dress. Old maid me had so much fun watching lovey-dovey couples along the way. Now let me see if "the price I paid" and am still paying "is high enough for me" or "let's keep it simple:" worth it all.

I could beat it with a sharp stick. LOL Too funny that answer. Oh i'm sure that the candy bra comes in all shapes and sizes just not perky, young and firm as displayed in the photo. But what they hell do I know. I'm with ya on true love...I wonder. Okay now my dear sweet one I have a bone to pick with you. ROFLMAO!!!

Carpenters were so good but that dumb Richard just always sat and stared and played the drums. They should have been known as Karen. LOL Loved the song.

Now to the picking...what's this you walking up to the mountain peak in Stiletto's? Hmmm See I knew you weren't too old for those. :) Ha!!!

Gung Hei Fat Choy. Have a wonderful week ahead :)

Love The Carpenters!

Your Monday Mayhem answers always crack me up! My favorite: "Go out with someone just for the meal? No, I haven't been that hungry". LMAO That's classic!

I don't know about that V-Day's tradition. Wearing your best heels to be shot down in more way than one? Seems like a terrible waste of great style. I think you need to start a new tradition, like roll out the red carpet and strut your single stuff with pride. Call it a sexy single stroll. ;-)

Happy MM!

Ouch, Thom lol! Two of them as Karen :))) I thought Richard played the piano, and it was Karen on the drums. But whatever... lol
I wasn't mountaineering yesterday in stilettos. The heels were as wide and thick as chisel lol! And until now I still can't read the greeting aloud, but I love it :)

Run, what a brilliant series of Sssess :) strut single stuff and sexy single stroll. I want to quote you some time later hmmm... :) Thanks.

moorebloglife, of all Carpenters songs, this is my favorite to play on the piano. I was really bummed when I lost my sheet music of this song.

Hi Hazel.
People really got into that candy bra thing. I've got a couple of spoiled brats too :)

Thanks for playing!

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…
