a second chance
It looks like it is and I consider it to be so after a mistake I made on these anti-virus programs wiped out all my pictures. Most of those I label “precious” haven’t been sent to email or stored in a flash drive or posted on any social network site. Everything vanished. I tried hard to be cheerful and carried on but the loss was such a nasty cloud over me last week that I grew two canker sores. Then I worked again on restoring them but without expecting anything anymore. Tweaking and hoping I tried these hidden files that warn you not to open them or your other files would be messed up. I had nothing else left to lose anyway so I risked it. Alas! there they were! The saying “you value a thing when you lose it” had never taken a more distinct meaning. It taught me a few lessons as well: always have back-up and don’t take things for granted.
a place to stay
I was getting worried that it’s already mid-March and we haven’t booked a hotel in Hong Kong yet. Finally we have. I acknowledge Chette’s searching prowess. The place she found is not just new with a good price value. It’s also in the midst of everything we need and want to do.
Alice in Wonderland
It’s a beautiful film and I enjoyed watching it.
Shirts and blouses that fit
I just love it when I go shopping in a large mall and I find what I want right on the spot. I get to go home quickly.
Chat about a cat
Meet Kareltje, one of blogosphere’s most famous felines. When I headed over virtually to the Netherlands to say hi to Anya (Kareltje’s human Mom), CJ was watching video clips on another window. We talked —
Me: (on an impulse to correct) Garfield, Baby Pooh. But it’s Kareltje … (and wishing to evaluate the correction) … who’s that?
Me: What is Kareltje doing?
Me: How does a cat sound?
CJ: Karew fat!
It’s either a situation that heralds the need for audio-visual comprehension overhaul or the influence of these Baby Einsten Art DVDs or something I have no idea about. So much for a master’s in Communication.
Please scroll up for Friday’s Fave Five
There’s Vivian, there’s Daisy, George, Heartwell, Norman, and I’ll try to remember the rest later. This was taken on a Friday afternoon after beautifying our class garden; most probably why we were not wearing our uniform. That’s our homeroom adviser, Mr. Israel Tigley, grinning in the middle front row 🙂 Most of these classmates are on Facebook. Some of them may recognize themselves after the tags.
