Day 12: A song from a band you hate

This is a tough one. Does this mean Song I like from a band I hate? Or I hate both song and band? I can't think of any. So suffice it to say, that there will be no song entry today.

I hate bands that says a lot of curses. heavy rock, metal rock, I never appreciated them.

GT: Techie talk

A number of my blogger friends have joined GirlsTalk, and I didn't exactly dive right on in since some of the topics are waaayy out of my hive... Yes, I don't have much idea when it comes to clothes. I admit, I am a struggling fashionista. hahaha. Anyways, today's topic is a little bit on my own league. If there's anything in life that I really want the most, it has to be a gadget of some sort. I do have a wish list and If ever I do get to win lotto, then without a doubt, I'll spend moolah with this:

I'm gonna forget for a moment about laptop because I think this will be a good substitute for me... and I'll shelve that DSLR I'm sooo dreaming about and will probably buy just the charger for my camera. BUT! If I do win jackpot, then I'll buy everything and still have money left!!!

Day 10: A song that makes you fall asleep

This has been the song that I usually doze off to dream land, for an unexplainable reason it brings comfort to my hopeless romantic being. *lol*

"May I hold you
as you fall to sleep,
when the world is closing in
and you can't breathe.
May I love you.
May I be your shield.
When no one can be found
may I lay you down."

Tag: Ten things I love

My new found friend on blogsphere, Tessa of Fashion Facile, tagged me in on this. I don't intend to flood my blog with just any chain but somehow I find this (1) interesting, (2) another instrument to get to know me better and (3) its fun!!!

Weddings are special occasion and since I've passed the age limit for Proms and work does not require formal gatherings, weddings ARE great excuse to play dress-up and be pretty *not to mention valid excuse to go dress, shoes and accessories hunting. lol*

I love night outs because I've been deprived of it for years. My first night out was during my graduation in college. *Believe it!* I am definitely not a night owl but when I do get out and socialize whether with acquaintance, colleagues, or family, it is usually a blast!!!

My outlet. my diary. *'nuff said*

These are my ultimate guilty pleasure. I adore reading. I love music *and even sings along out of tune*. Watching movies is one of my pastime, specially during long weekends.

Need I say more? I wanna travel the world!!! Go places! Experience life. Meet exceptional individuals. Make memories.

I am a techie at heart.

Foodtrip!!! A lot of good things happen with food. The conversations. The gastronomic experience just not the fat. lol*

The girls: A, D, K, L, M, S and of course B. *teehee*

Family is the reason for my existence. I treasure them, near or far. There are those that may not have been in the picture but that does not mean I isolate them *I just couldn't find some photos* So, be it by affinity or consanguinity, it doesn't matter.

Live. Love. Laugh.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us! What are the ten things you love? Do tell.

Day 7: A song that reminds you of a certain event

Happy Easter, Everyone!

I'd like to post a very memorable song. D, has previously post this in her blog challenge as well, except on a different date. You might want to see it here.

It was my first every night out, with my single bffs, A, D and M.. in the City of Waterfalls. My first night we ordered alcoholic drinks, except for A, of course and left the three of us tipsy... Bff K would surely have a fit. Lol.

We rode on a sikad to dunkin donuts, where the driver overcharged us, much to his disappointment, we were tipsy, yes, but we were all sane! lol. We had some hot choco or coffee fix while waiting for D's chauffer aka Tatay. (Hi! to Tatay and Nanay! *I'm sure they can still recall the time they fetch 4 gals who happened to graduate in college but acted as high schoolers*)

Everytime, I get to hear this song, it transports me back to that night. I miss the girls!!!

Day 6: A song that reminds you of somewhere

This song was very much loved by my bff, D, especially after having heard it sang by Dean on the Supernatural. It reminded me of the Queen City of the South, Cebu. This song was played during our arrival, D and I couldn't help but laugh while queuing to go down the plane. It was my first plane trip with a barkada, and my first out of Mindanao trip with D. We were to attend bff L's sister's wedding. Such good memories with this song ;)

Day 5: A song that reminds you of someone

I'm single with no attachments yet I am so drawn at the lyrics of this song. I dedicate Plumb's In my Arms to my niece, Alliah Cristabelle "Ycey". She was born premature, we didn't take pictures when she was just a new born because we pity her physical condition. I got to bond with this li'l angel when she was just a few months old when she stayed with me. I mixed her milk and changed her diapers. Someday, if God will bless me, I'll have children of my own.

Plumb - In My Arms by AcerBen

"Castles they might crumble
Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always
Always love you"

Soul food: A glass of milk

In observance of holy week, I wanted to blog about something inspiring then I thought of an e-mail I got years before and wondered if cyberspace had it, true enough, searching via google, I got what I've been looking for.

I read it again and I could feel tears welling in my eyes. Too much watching drama contributed to this senti side of me. Anyway, here's the story (you might have come across it before):

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.

She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness."

He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year's later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the nameof the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.

He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill.

She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk"

Dr. Howard Kelly

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, God, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."

Day 3: A song that makes you happy

This is a feel good song for me. I love the positive vibe, the fast beat and the message... I am also a Natasha Bedingfield fan. period. lol.

Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful Of Sunshine - Video found on Pop

"I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.
Oh.oh oh

Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No.oh oh"

Day 2: Your least favorite song

I'm confuse with this one, A song I abhor or still one of my favorites??? Anyway, I initially wanted to place Sean Kingston's Beautiful girls for this entry but then I realized that it never was a favorite, and I don't want to give it some blog space... so I pick out Janet Jackson's Everytime...Don't get me wrong, I ♥ this song! It's one of my favorites - the only thing that places it in the bottom list of personal fave is the video. haha! Lame! I know! lol.

You’re watching Janet Jackson - Everytime (official music video) HQ.

See the Web's top videos on AOL Video

"I'm afraid, I'm starting to feel
What I said I would not do
The last time really hurt me
I'm scared to fall in love

Afraid to love so fast
'Cause everytime I fall in love
It seems to never last

But every time your love is near
And every time I'm filled with fear
'Cause every time I see your face
My heart does begin to race everytime"

Day 1: Your favorite song

This is one of my favorite song, from the tv series, Dawson Creek... I'm struck by the chorus...
 "As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy"

Sinful Cravings: Paired with Vinegar ♥

I'm supposed to be doing my laundry today but here I am blogging away. Fret not 'coz my pile of laundry is taken care of by the machine. Anyway, this entry is not about laundry or clothes but about food. Not about the usual food served at the restaurant but the simplest food I like to eat paired with vinegar!!!

As much as junk food is bad for one's health, it's one sinful food that I have a hard time staying away from. Two out of three food best paired with vinegar in in this category. I ♥ Jack 'n Jill Taquitos and Safari corn bits with vinegar. Weird, right? I just love how the salt blend in with the sourness of vinegar.

Ans what else is best with vinegar? Hilaw na Mangga *Green Mango* with Bagoong *Shrimp Paste*. Yum yum. Makes my mouth water. haha! Hilaw na mangga is already sour but with vinegar and a pinch of salt , its much better.

Say, what are your sinful cravings with vinegar?
