Curious as a Cat #405
I instantly became curious as a cat, too! Curious Cat posed these questions that I answered:
1) What was the name of your first grade teacher?
I remember a name as Ms. Buan (pronounced as ‘bwan’). It was easy for me to remember because it sounds like the word buwan which is a Filipino word for moon or month.
2) What was the worst smell you have ever smelled?
Eww. The worst smell for me is that of a decaying carcass of a rat. It could evacuate my bowels, or make me gag, once I smell it.
3) What is something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail, and explain why you haven’t tried it yet?
It is my greatest desire to resign from my current work and try digital entrepreneurship. The thing is, I am uneasy and apprehensive still because of the possible failure or when things will not work as I expect them to be, even with a guarantee that I will not fail. Yes, I am that indecisive.
4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
The picture reminds me of hope. I am not sure why but the leaves portray the dissipating snow and the thought promises sunlight.
We do not experience snow here in the Philippines but currently the weather is very cold, which is unusual for most Filipinos. It is not very comfortable and the feeling always make me want to laze around the house instead of going to work. 😀
It was so nice to see my daughter in a picture with a set of drums when she was in high school. The drums look like the cool pearl at musicians friend, black in color. With that lovely set of drums and hardware, there’s a reason to play drums. These percussion instruments always give that lively, happy feeling.
Speaking of Pearl drums, they are one of those hot deals or one of the best selling drums at Musician’s Friend. One can find a variety of these drum instruments and narrow the choices according to one’s budget. Isn’t that cool?
In the eyes of a child, the world is a VAST place to explore. A day late to participate in Photohunting. The other takes are here.
Model: Drake. Drake is a boy of four now. He is the second son of Papsie’s nephew.

52Photos Project #19 – My Reflection
With enough budget, I would consider this: buy kitchen cabinets online from here or from a similar online store. The cabinet designs are so lovely with their simple styles and their clean lines.
I want only the black or white ones. They are so elegant. I prefer the black cabinets but the problem is there is not a single window that will give out natural light to enhance the black color. I would have the walls painted with golden yellow if ever. That would be so nice to look at. I am drooling at the image formed inside my head.
This is one of those plans for my kitchen remodeling. *taps* (crossing fingers for a wish to come true).
Theme was repeated I learned then I remembered I participated last time but with the ‘S’ in RIPPLE. You can find it here.
Today, after a long vacation from participating in the hunt, I am sharing two (2) photos that I think portray this Saturday’s theme. Yes, I know, this time I am very early.
Here is another one that is very cute for me.
Gemstones Jewelries: A good suggestion
This maybe a little late thinking about gifts for the past holiday season but hey, Reeds has a collection of bangles with birthstone charms that are perfect for Valentine’s Day! I would definitely want one. 😀
My birthstone is emerald and a bangle at Reeds costs $28 that translates to around PhP 1,260. Slightly expensive for a gift considering it’s only a gold finish but the birthstone is what matters.
52Photos Project #18 – Wide Open Spaces
I had not participated in this project for a while. Time constraint. 😦 I make it a point though to take a peep once in a while.
Today, the theme for the gallery is WIDE OPEN SPACES which you can find here. I have a number of photos for this but I am in a different location and time. In short, said photos are not here where I am right now. I discovered through FB that there are photos depicting the theme.
The place is a local recreation space situated in Quezon City. It is called Quezon Memorial Circle, or simply ‘Circle’. As the name implies, the place is in a circular space, the center a wide open space with the shrine in the very middle of it. You can find lots of people going there on weekends to do jogging, strolling, biking, playing games, etc. At the sides are stalls that offer food and other commodities.
Can we call it premonition?
In an article, premonition is defined as a foreknowledge of an event that has not yet happened. The article discusses about us being able to tell what is going to happen but has not happened yet, and that there are a lot of possibilities being broadcasted all the time. Ms. Pavlina also said these are being brought to us by our spirit guides, or by a ‘time stream’.
I have encountered a lot of mention about premonition when death falls to a person. During wakes, people will talk about ‘predictions’ mentioned by the dead person days before his or her death. Take for example, Papsie’s cousin, Nilo, who made mention of words to his friend like “Huwag ka muna mamatay, ako muna mauuna.(Don’t die yet, I have to die first.)“ He died days after.
I wondered if cousin Nilo knew about his impending death. Did he utter those words unknowingly? Because if he did know about it, he could have done something about it, and did everything to avoid his own death knowing his kids are still young and dependent on him.
Being obvious that he was not aware of the implications of his own words, can we call it premonition then?
