Me, myself, I and David Foster

Our Weekend Memoirs: David Foster & Friends
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

The Hitman, David Foster and his sidekicks finally performed live in my backyard last Monday. My ineptness at the camera has been a serendipity. I came up with halloween shots as well. Meet the ghosts of concert present: don't they shape up better than Casper?

Opening score: Theme of the Calgary Olympics

Mr Foster did his homework by remarking about the flood in the northeast. And here they are doing (Michael Jackson's) the Earth Song
David Foster, Peter Cetera, Ruben Studdard, Natalie Cole, Charice, and The Canadian Tenors

I went to this concert mainly for the household names and revel in memories of familiar titles: St. Elmo's Fire, Unforgettable, and many more.

Peter Cetera can't reach his high notes anymore =)

But it's okay. He's still The Inspiration. Besides I can't complain when someone half my age mistook me for a 20-something girl in the parking lot. But even if I did look my age, I admit Charice does deliver.

'dismembered' from the Charice Fan Club

It seemed like phones were intercepted inside Impact Arena. I got to socialize with friends only after the concert -

Singles Club for The Canadian Tenors

Seventeen years ago I could have turned into a zombie if I came face to face with them. The relevance of their songs was just too striking on my god forsaken love career. I'm thankful for the passage of time.

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.

Rumford

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…
