Dreams are my reality

Our Weekend Memoirs and Pixel Bug Weekend: Disney Fun
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

A note: Sassy Mom invited me to join her meme Pixel Bug Weekend. Thank you, Sassy Mom. I thought it would be fun. Since I'm on two other memes on Sunday and Monday, four in fact when two days' worth of memes are all added up, I am incorporating OWM with PBW as both have similar themes.

This post has today's Sunday Stealing theme rubbed off on it. I'm sharing selected shots from those Disney-ish outings we did last year.

A scene from Disney on Ice, taken early 2009
Dream World entrance; lots of dreams inside, mostly with a Disney feel
Some free-style dreaming: Jack's beanstalk is clinging up a castle
It's a bed of sunflowers below. I was seeing roses actually. Bon Jovi rocked my tired, kid-carrying muscles back to reality.

We also went to a children's museum where a large part is dedicated to showing kids a very good illustration of fairytales. So much budget seems to have been alloted for dreams everywhere. But to think of the way our world is behaving nowadays, it won't hurt to sometimes transport ourselves to a world where the beautiful always triumphs.

Sunday Stealing: Harriet's Choice: The Disney Meme
Please scroll up for Our Weekend Memoirs and Pixel Bug Weekend

Today we are honored to have our very first guest host! Harriet, from the world famous Harriet and Friends blog picked today's victim. Harriet is also the host of Monday Mayhem a very clever meme. Harriet picked a meme from a blogger named Roger Owen Green from Ramblin' with Roger. He states he saw it at both SamuraiFrog and Jaquandor. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time.

Link back to us at Sunday Stealing! Cheers to all us thieves!

1. Which non-Disney Princess Disney Film is your favorite? can't think of any right now

2. Which Disney film makes you cry the most? I don't cry on any but there are scenes I thought were sad like Mufasa's death, and death of Bambi's mother

3. Which Disney film makes you the happiest? all their endings

4. Which Disney film has the best music? Fantasia 2000

5. Which Disney film has the best love story? The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement

6. Who is your favorite Disney Princess? Mia Thermopolis

7. Who is your favorite Disney Prince? Lord Devereaux

9. Who is your favorite Disney main character animal? Roo. He's not main but he's my fave

10. Who is your favorite villain? No favorite at all. Some of them may be cute but as villains I don't like any of them. If you asked for a villain that I love to hate then it would be - Cruella de Vile

11. What is your favorite Disney song? Your Crowning Glory

12. What is your favorite Disney villian song? Again as something to do with villains, I don't have a fave. But if it's something that is sort of stuck in my mind for its Nazi feel, it's "Be Prepared"

OMG! I am missing a lot of Disney movies. I guess, during the betamax days taping for Zee, I fell asleep. Lion King made me shed a tear, and love the song Hakuna Matata.

We missed the Disney on Ice last January, but we can make it up on their next tour.

Enjoy your weekend, it has been raining here.

Bless you Thom, always making sure I don't forget our Disney trip :)) I don't know what year the original Fantasia was made. But I'm okay with the one I saw.

#15.....from what movie is this? And when you say Donkey?------[shrek's donkey? I don't think that's a Disney movie. I woulda said him too, but it's Pixar isn't it?]

But...I LOVE Disney Come see my answers if you can find time today...the "Disney" is the permalink to my Sunday Stealing. Have a great week ahead.
Hazel said…
Anni, #15 - I forgot, but it's the one sang by Phil Collins. If I google it, I'll find it.

Shrek, is, you're right - not a Disney movie. I'll go edit.

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…
