She's Engaged!

"A bell is no bell 'til you ring it...
A song is no song 'til you sing it...
And love in your heart
Wasn't put there to stay -
Love isn't love
'Til you give it away."
~ Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music...

So my daughter, Tracey gives her heart and love... She is engaged!

PhotoHunt - Steel

Photo%20Hunt.jpg

I am not too sure where I found this photo. I saved it because my daughter is a children's playground designer and I wanted to send this to her... but haven't yet.

So here is an interesting photo... made of steel. This is for you, Trace.

If anyone can tell me where this is from, I will appreciate it!

Happy Birthday, Nang Glor!

I was in the Philippines for a little over 6 weeks. I probably attended a birthday party each and every week that I was there. It started when Manang Glor had her birthday on December 30th.

Let me introduce to you my " Older sister from another Mother" - Manang Glor! (Manang is the term we use for older sister, root word is the Spanish word, Hermana...)

She has always been so special as she helped take care of us as we were growing up. She lived with my parents for as long as I could remember.

Now, she is a retired teacher and celebrated her birthday with almost her entire family there...She has a fun and supportive family too. Lucky her!

PhotoHunt - Miniscule

When I was on an extended visit to the Philippines, there were so much to see and do. One of the things I saw were these beautiful miniscule bananas. They were cooked (boiled in their skin).

You can see how small they are... compare it to my thumbnail!
Peeled and ready to be eaten. Delicious.
