Q1. What brand/flavor of chewing gum would you recommend to the rest of us?
Dentyne Ice Midnight Mint. Guaranteed to funnel chili oxygen to your nostril. If you don't want your tongue convulsing in strong mint, stay away from it. (But it's my favorite)

Q2. What brand/flavor of beverage would you recommend to the rest of us?
Water from a mountain spring. I never drank anything like that from the shelves. But I have from a real mountain which took 8 hours to reach the peak. Just missing those days.

Q3. Describe the perfect steak (vegetarian's can describe the perfect tofu or whatever). Beef that gratifies the palate and doesn't break the wallet

This video is a heart warmer. Watch.

I like the heartwarmning video you chose! My favorite gum right now is Eclipse Spearmint! My favorite drink La Croix Lime seltzer! Oh and the perfect steak for me is a ribeye, medium rare, off the grill and smothered in mushrooms and onions! Yum!

Good point about beef that gratifies the palate and doesn't break the wallet.

Thanks for playing!
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?
