Snail Mail

While browsing past blog entry of my friend, I got inspired to blog my love of snail mail. Yes, you read it right I love snail mail. You might find it old fashion but I don't care. I just love receiving those kind of mail. I'm always excited to hear someone shout" sulat" the happiness I feel when the mail man hand over the letter is unexplainable.

The first thing I do when I'm ready to open the letter is to find a quite place where I can sit comfortably. When I finally open it, my eyes lights up when I see the handwriting and get emotional when reading it. I become so succumb to what ever the sender is discoursing to me. That's how affected I am when I receive a mail.

Snail mail is not just a mail. It's a piece of paper where a person I know or love communicate with me through use of words. Words that convey emotion that we personally share.

Back to present time, I hardly receive a snail mail or should I say I can't remember the last time I receive one. The only snail mail I receive this days are bills which I had to respond immediately or else I regret it later. :)

Music and Lyrics

I just finished watching Music and Lyrics and I fell inlove with the movie. Hugh grant (Alex Fletcher) is so charming when he played the piano and Drew Barrymore (Sophie Fisher) is so adorable. I really love when she giggles and smile. Such a cute face. What I can't forget about the movie is this two videos:

It’s never been easy for me

To find words to go along, with a melody
But this time there’s actually something, on my mind
So please forgive these few brief awkward lines

Since I’ve met you, my whole life has changed

It’s not just my furniture, you’ve rearranged
I was living in the past, but somehow you’ve brought me back
And I haven’t felt like this since before Frankie said relax

And while I know, based on my track record

I might not seem like the safest bet
All I’m asking you, is don’t write me off, just yet

For years I’ve been telling myself, the same old story

That I’m happy to live off my so called, former glories
But you’ve given me a reason, to take another chance
Now I need you, despite the fact, that you’ve killed all my plants

And though I know, I’ve already blown more chances

Than anyone should ever get
All I’m asking you, is don’t write me off, just yet
Don’t write me off just yet

(Drew Barrymore)

I've been living with a shadow overhead,
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed,
I've been lonely for so long,
Trapped in the past,
I just can't seem to move on!

(Hugh Grant)

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away,
Just in case I ever need them again someday,
I've been setting aside time,
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind!


All I want to do is find a way back into love.
I can't make it through without a way back into love.

(Drew Barrymore)

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine,
I've been searching but i just don't see the signs,
I know that it's out there,
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere!

(Hugh Grant)

I've been looking for someone to shed some light,
Not somebody just to get me through the night,
I could use some direction,
And I'm open to your suggestions.

(Drew Barrymore)

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation


All I want to do is find a way back into love,
I can't make it through without a way back into love,
And if I open my heart to you,
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do,
And if you help me to start again,
You know that I'll be there for you in the end!
Oooooooh. Oooooooh. Ooooooooh. Oooooooh. Ooooooh Ooooooooh. Ooooooooh.

Up close

One of the reason I bought my canon camera is I wanted to learn macro photography. I'm fascinated with bugs and I wanted to know what they really look up close. I can't explain the feeling every time I capture the small details only macro lenses can produce. Every sweat and effort are worth it once you see the final result. Just like this shot. The spider looked straight to me as if asking me to back off.

Ken Lee Lyrics

I first saw this at Thea's blog and after watching it, I can't help but watch it again and again.  This video is so addicting. I always sing-along with her and sometimes I forget the lyrics (shame on me) 

Ken Lee
No one ken to ken to sivmen

nor yon clees toju maliveh
When I gez aju zavateh na nalechoo more
new yonooz tonigh molinigh
Yon sorra shooo
yes, ee shooo, ooo

Ken Leee

tulibu dibu douchoo
Ken Leee

tulibu dibu douchoo
Ken Leee

ken lee meju more

Pen Tablet

We changed our computer table awhile ago. The table is spacious and can accommodate another computer peripheral. It got me thinking. What computer accessories I still want but not necessarily need? So what I did is I browsed Bayanpc website and clicked this thread. If only I have a lot of money to splurge, I might buy the Wacom Intuos3 6x8 10 pack which cost 120,000.00 Pesos. 

 In reality, I just want it for creating my digital scrap freebies and LO. So, I opted to Genius G-Pen 560 which cost 2,450.00 pesos. Not bad for a great review

I better start saving now if I really want to buy this. Oh! you might think "it's too cheap, why bother to save in order to buy it" Well, my answer is simple. The pen tablet is under my want things not my need things. My husband and I always believe that if we have things to buy under want things we need to save for it. because the reason why it's there is:

  • It's too expensive
  • We can survive without it
