Wednesday Breakfast

Pebrero 21, 2008

Because it was Wednesday and had to hurry, had to have quick breakfast and this is what I had:

berries-red

The strawberries were a bit sour but still good. I was dreaming of eating some more the whole day. 😀


Colors and Sounds

Pebrero 19, 2008

Did you know that colors have sound? Five musicians created songs inspired by a color. Five directors also made music videos for the songs. Among the compositions, my favorite is Marie Digby’s “Paint Me in Your Sunshine.”

Paint me in your sunshine/ Wake my sleepy eyes/ Round me in your comfort/
Stay with me for all of time

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Darken clouds for your rays of hope

So paint me in your sunshine/ Walk with me, stay by my side/ Fill my head with stories/ For love and war and glory

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Light the path that will lead me home/ Oh, oh, Home

One day the world will grow colder/ Everything we’ve come to cherish crumbles/ And only then will we turn back and remember your glow

Paint me in your sunshine/ Leave the part of you behind/ Tell me where I’ll find you/ And send me off to another day/ Till we meet tomorrow

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Hold me close till the day that I grow old/ Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh/ Mm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm

Discover the sounds of other colors here. Enjoy!


I Love Tuesdays

Pebrero 19, 2008

Because on Tuesdays, the traffic is lighter — even in EDSA, commuting is easy, and I get to work early.

Tuesdays give me a chance to have a descent breakfast because I have extra time (usually spent in traffic in other days) to eat my almusal.

On Tuesdays, I usually attend a movie premiere. And I love movies! I don’t mind if I get home a little late and the next day is a working day. 😀

Oh, I just LOVE TUESDAYS!


Something Old, Something New

Pebrero 18, 2008

This a long overdue tag. I was supposed to post it a long time ago. This tag’s from Rhapsody. She wants me to go over my archives and pick a few posts about:

  • Family: Definitely, it’s “Laugh at Your Heart’s Content.” The post is composed of photos mainly but I think they say a lot about how we are in the family (meaning, the whole clan). Besides, those photos are among my most treasured — happy and carefree.
  • Friends: From my Old Neighborhood. I grew up in the barrio, so the neighborhood is pretty tight. The other kids there became my first buddies before I made friends in school.
  • Myself: Me, a Love Charm?! I still think I am. 😀 Read the post and tell me if my theory is correct. 😉
  • Choice: It’s about an old hobby, a Forgotten Passion. I’m trying to find time to do it. I will. Someday. Tell me if I should. 🙂
  • Something I love: I love this poem. 😀 I hope you’ll read it and you’ll share yours!

That’s about it. I’m supposed to tag other people, but I guess most of you did this already. But if you’re reading this post and haven’t done this meme, then I’m passing it on to you. Just remember this simple rule:

Go through your archive and choose five of your favorite posts about your family, friends, yourself, something you love and lastly, your own choice.


I’m Back!

Pebrero 17, 2008
I’ve been out of touch for more than a month! I didn’t realize it had been that long. But I’m back. A lot of things occupied my time the past month — at work, in my personal life, the family. So, how’s everybody? I hope your Valentine’s Day was great. Please tell me about it. And speaking of Valentine’s Day, this song was playing over the radio while I was on my way to work last Thursday.
I know it’s a mushy song but it was just perfect for the occasion! The lady sitting next to me was actually sighing, I swear! The one I listened to was a different version, by the way. Much better than Dusty Springfield’s (in my opinion). “Something in Your Eyes” is one of the songs in Claire dela Fuente’s new album. Listen to it. Fall in love.
Belated Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ll be in your blogs soon, people. And Rhapsody, I’ll do the tag really, really soon. I promise, I promise, I promise.
