Skywatching while Running Late!

I'm always intrigued with leafless trees, I mean they are alive but you can't see any sign that they are!

Everytime I was not able to catch my shuttle service in the morning, I have to walk inside this industrial park, the Calamba Premier Industrial Park for 20minutes from the gate to the DPL building where we rent our offices.

Most days, it's sunny but it's too hot to walk, especially if one's running late, which I usually am!

F is...for Friends at The Fort!

I can't find any recent "F" photos but my archive's always a great help! ::wink::

We sure had fun! It's as if no years has separated us.

That's what's left Crispy Pata (Deep Fried Pork Hind or Front Leg) and Mixed Seafood
These are my school friends at Meralco Foundation Institute (now MFI Foundation Institute) when we had our Crystal Alumni Homecoming after 15 years!  After the event, we went to Pier One Bar and Grill at The Fort Strip at Bonifacio Global City for more "remember when" bonding moments.

Quote of the Day

"Forgiveness is the economy of the heart.…forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits."

About Hannah More

English writer and philanthropist Hannah More, one of the most influential women of her time, is seen as a proto-feminist because she argued for true education for women. She was born near Bristol in 1745. When her long engagement to a local landowner ended badly, he gave her a yearly stipend in apology, which allowed her the freedom to move to London and write plays. She later shifted to philanthropic work and writing popular religious tracts. She died in 1833.

Six Word Saturday ~ Life

Life really goes on. And on.

It never stops really, even if there will be moments that we wish it to stop for a while, just to catch our breath and catch up.

Happy Weekend, everyone!

Skywatching at Subic

at Subic, Zambales

Let the sea wind blow,
Restore your heart, and lift your
once broken spirit.

Let the sea wave wash
Away your tears, and the pain
That once pierced your soul.

Let the sunlight warm
Your smile and laugh once more
Oh! Just like before!

Join the fun!


"I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins."

happy valentines day

Skywatching as I wait

As I wait for my shuttle to work this morning, I looked up and saw these electrical/phone lines hampering my view.

Cloudy skies today.  That's downtown Calamba City, here in Laguna. Election campaign is in full blast beginning Feb 10 until May 8. All possible corners, trees, posts, nooks and crannies are full of candidates' billboards.

Happy weekend, everyone!

For more skies, find it here!

Warmth of Friendship

...found each other again after 9 years...

"Friendship is the golden ribbon that ties the world together."

Thank You, Friend

Thank you, friend, for all the things

That mean so much to me--

For concern and understanding

You give abundantly.

Thanks for listening with your heart;

For cheering me when I'm blue;

For bringing out the best in me;

And just for being you.

Thanks for in-depth conversation

That stimulates my brain;

For silly times we laugh out loud;

For things I can't explain.

For looking past my flaws and faults;

For all the time you spend;

For all the kind things that you do,

Thank you; thank you, FRIEND.

SOOc Sunday~

...something that caught my eye as I walked outside. Is it me, or the branches, that is gloomy?
