What Your Handbag Says About You

You tend to be relaxed throughout the day. You are naturally at peace.

You tend to be relaxed but alert. You keep your eye out for anything unusual.

You are a high maintenance person. You feel lost outside of your normal environment.

You are an organized and together person. You are competent and successful.

You are practical and down to earth. You tend to be a rather reserved and quiet person.

Encounter with a playful dolphin

>> Sunday, July 13, 2008

In a recent trip to California, we had a chance to see the dolphins in Six Flags Discovey Kingdom. What a great treat when this dolphin decided to play with my daughter on the viewing window. The dolphin was playful and loved my daughter's little panda bear. It went on for about half an hour and it was delightful.

I'm not really certain but i think Lobo is a tagalog word for wolf.
I am a big fan of Lobo, a Pinoy telemovie with ABS-CBN.
For your daily dose of Lobo, checkout Pinoy TV Junkie.
Most of the time I watch the episodes via Pinoy TV Channel or You Tube and on occasions thru TFC.

It is almost at its final episodes. I cant wait to see the end and yet a bit saddened that its almost over. Oh well..I'll see Piolo Pascual again i'm sure. I hope he will star on another tele serye.

and on a related note,
I went to the Metro Toronto Zoo the other day for my daughter's school trip and took some photos.
Here's one of the wolf pack enjoying the warm weather.

Tulip Tree

>> Sunday, June 1, 2008

We planted this tree on my daughter’s 1st birthday.
On spring time, it blooms with these lovely yellow flowers.
The tulip tree is part of the magnoliaceae family and it smells good.


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

— Joyce Kilmer

This is our Jade plant. It is so big now. It is happily growing by the bay window. Commonly known as jade plant, friendship tree or Money Plant, Crassula ovata is a succulent plant that sometimes has small pink or white flowers and is common as a houseplant worldwide. Although I have not seen our jade plant flower yet. It must be a different kind than the common one.

Earth Hour

Just like google, I am turning off the lights here in my blog.

Are you in? We are!

Turn off your lights

We are actually going to a Lights Out Party tonight in celebration of the Earth Hour. There will be entertainment, children's activities and FREE hot chocolate. My daughter can't wait.

Earth Hour will show the world that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in the fight against climate change.

Make sure you turn off your lights, unplug any appliance that is using energy. Even your cell phone chargers. And take time off from watching TV. Light a candle and enjoy the quiet of the dark.

Let's help in saving Earth.

Be Oyster Aware

>> Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Why did the oyster cross the road? Well, anyone...give me an answer to that please. I am searcing for a good oyster joke but somehow I cant find one. So let me make up a good answer to my initial question then. Hmnn, maybe because it was tired of swimming and said, wow, its great to shake off all this salt.

I often hear that oysters are an aphrodisiac. Maybe this is because they have excellent nutrient content, especially vitamin E and zinc. Newer methods of nutritional analysis have shown the oyster to be very low in cholesterol. The "fat" is not fat, but glycogen, and animal starch. Normally glycogen is highest from October to June. Oysters are a source of protein, several vitamins, sodium iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iodine and phosphorus and 16 or more trace elements.

I am not a big fan of oysters but when my sister and I went to a Japanese restaurant a month ago and she ordered this baked oyster as an appetizer. I had a bit of a taste to it and wow, I was smitten. It was delicious. It was nice and warm and had a salty and lemony taste. It just melted in my mouth. I am sure I will order this again next time we go there.

The secret to eating a good and healthy oyster is to make sure that it is cooked well. When it comes to eating raw or undercooked oyster, the key thing to note is be aware, be cautious, be educated. Make sure you are not at risk; i.e. you have no health issues that might affect your body when you eat oysters.

Get all the facts and information at Gulf oysters.
