Chain Letters

I got this from my son's Kindergarten Teacher. (Well, that was many moons ago, Kindergarten, not the email - as my son is now 27 years old.) I thought it's pretty funny so here goes...

Subject: To all My Friends

To all my friends who in 2007 sent me best 'wishes', chain letters, 'angel' letters or other promises of good luck if I forwarded something,


For 2008, could you please just send money, VODKA, TONIC Water, chips, movie tickets, gasoline vouchers and airline tickets instead?

Thank you!

Things to Think About Children and Grandchildren

Not my original but this was "begging" to be posted...

1. You spend the first two years of your children's lives teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. (This is so true with my kindergarteners who tell me about their home lives.)

5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children
more awful than your own.

6. We childproof our homes, but they are still getting in.

ADVICE FOR THE DAY: Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day. (I, personally take this to heart... LOL)

Stand Up Comedy

Last Friday evening, I went to see Five Funny Females at the Purple Onion in San Francisco. I went to see a friend's daughter who was headlining at the Purple Onion. How do people find out they are funny? This gal / my friend's daughter, Dana, is FUNNY!!!

My daughter also went to the show. She and Dana have known each other since 2nd grade! That was over 20 years ago! We had a great time at the show.

Lesson learned from the show: Mothers don't let your daughters become stand-up comics. You will become a comedy subject that involves R. Kelly and MTV!

PhotoHunt - Books


Working in a school, I thought this should not be too difficult for me. Perhaps a picture of the library and the terrific librarian whose job is going to be cut next year due to the budget crisis! (ARRGG)....

Or these ... These are my recent acquisition. Why two books? I usually give away books that I love so others may enjoy them too... or even ones I do not strong feelings for. :)

But this one, I really enjoyed and plan to take my copy with me on my next visit to Paris so I can find some of the things David wrote about.... like the sinfully thick chocolate at that dive on the 5th! So I thought, if I am to share, I better order some other copy to give forward.


As the say in the kids' show Reading Rainbow, "Get a copy for yourself, read it, you'll enjoy it!"

Stalking Waikiki's Matchy-matchy. :)

I saw some couples, people who tried to be "matchy-matchy" in Waikiki. It was later that I thought, 'this would make a great blog topic' :) .... much to the horror of my children as I was trying to be discreet when taking pictures of those in matching gear!


What is it with Aloha shirts that make people want to dress alike? Seriously!


I think the matchy-matchy looked good on children though ....


Why do people go matchy matchy in Hawaii? They really do not do it when they go other places. Tourists do not wear matching striped blue shirts in Paris, do they? Not matching Big Ben T shirts in London. Or even matching rebosos in Mexico... but they sure feel compelled to do so in Hawaii. :) I wonder...

Oh wait, maybe except for this group. LOL

PhotoHunt - Advertisement


I went through some photos and was ready to give up on this topic... until I found this. I have to apologize that this is a "rerun", as I posted this a while back...

I thought this was an interesting advertisement of what seems like a "one-stop-shop" in San Francisco...

PhotoHunt - Words


This is one fun theme. I had lots of photos to choose from. Most of the photos are from my summer trip to Asia... so there are some literal mishaps included. :)

I am glad for Bilingual signs... I wish I were more than tri-lingual... I would have been lost if it were not for the considerate bilingual translations.


On a wall of a construction site in Singapore. I am sure the sign was intentional... sure caught my attention.


A hotel perk in Hong Kong.

"Do not weap slippers in the bathroom to prevent slidng"

A sign in the Philippines... At first my "English-speaking" brain read this and questioned "What???" Then I realized as I reverted to my "Tagalog-speaking" brain that "IWAS" meant - prevent... Duh! (on me)


The following were taken to satisfy the self-centered me... LOL ... Somewhere in the desert between Palm Desert and San Diego.


Cebu, Philippines... I wish I spent sometime here... :)


March 23, 2010


Last Sunday, I went to Walgreens at the local strip mall to find March stickers and other supplies for my class. Not finding anything cute, I left the store to find this close to the entrance.


A little while later, the rooster treated us (me and other surprised shoppers) to a late morning crowing... Cute


I noticed a hen a little ways on the parking lot. I went looking for it after I took these photos but she was quick and nowhere to be found.

I guess, if you are an urban chicken you better be quick.

Kid Gloves

I got this photo from a cousin from the Philippines. I thought it was too cute for words... and too cute to not share... :)

Commemorating All Souls Day and the Elections.

Today is election day and All Souls Day. To commemorate the events, here is something I got from a friend: Enjoy!


While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car
and died. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a
problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you
spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.

In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other
politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is
waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven... ���

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell...

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered
with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a
golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says,

"Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted.."


I hope you voted wisely on November 2, 2010.

Thanks, Donna. Cool joke!

2010 Gift giving according to my cousin Helen :)

"It all began with an iPhone...

March was when my son celebrated his birthday, and his dad got him an iPhone. He just loved it. Who wouldn't?


My husband celebrated his birthday in July, and I made him very happy when I bought him an iPad.

My daughter's birthday was in August so I got her an iPod Touch.


September came by so for my birthday I got an iRon!


It was around then that the fight started......

I was reminded that I failed to recognize is that the iRon can be integrated into the home network with the iWash, iCook and iClean.

This inevitably activates the iNag reminder service'

Thanks, Helen!

Self Promotion

(As seen on a greeting card from Trader Joe's. I did not even realize they carried greeting cards! Well, until today. I had to buy this one. :) )

" I used to work hard at things, then I discovered that you can buy awards and ribbons at the store!

Now we can be good at EVERYTHING!!!"
