I haven’t done blogging for past 2 weeks… Quite busy? Well, after a short vacation trip last week with Papi (I will blog that later), I’ve been “recharged” and I’ve been trying to do most of my “P” works (hmmm, those tasks under the category of “Procrastinated tasks”) and it’s been very distressing and yet rewarding (when I finally ticked it off the list)… but my list is getting longer, I think. So, I really have to re-assess, re-prioritize and, most importantly, get it done.
I realized that most of these P tasks’ are easy to finish, but what is so “difficult” for me is to get it started. I know if I’ll just “push it a little” then it will keep rolling. Momentum!
So I have to keep it going, avoid show-stopper, avoid distraction… This is my “P” month… Will brag it later when I slash those projects in my list.
Kindness Girl… Because Kindness Changes Everything…
I love this blogsite! It is full of warmth and goodness and of course, kindness… It chronicles one mum’s ideas, projects and actions of kindness…. Ms. Patience Salgado must have a very big heart and she inspires so many people. BEING kind by itself is one thing but SHOWING kindness either small, menial, random, deliberate, grand or simple, almost everyday and every moment is one great and noble feat. And I admire Ms Salgado’s for her deeds and mission!
See for yourself and be inspired! Kindness Girl…
And one of my favorite entries is about
5 things to do when doors are closing…
By the way, her photographs are amazing too!
No. 18 – Have a Solo Date with Mama
(Have to update my 1st 101 list 🙂 )
I got 2 tickets for the musical play Mamma Mia at the CCP last February… Its a pricey show and limited for few weeks only in the Phils. So its a date with my Mama! The musical featured Abba songs which are kind of oldies that’s my best companion that would appreciate it is my mom… The show was great, their voices are powerful. The music are nostalgic! We had a great time!
When I want to feast my eyes into lovely things, inspiring thoughts, awesome pictures…. I usually visit this blog. This site is one amazing place of so much inspiration on designs, interiors, colors and most especially links to other valuable blogsite.
Design is Mine… vintage and modern design loveliness….
Here are some of the photo sample I like on he entry “Autumn Color of the Week: Orange”… Lovely…
and may I add my pic entry for “orange” – Boracay Sunset:>
As one of items in my new 101 list (that commenced May 13, 2012), I will feature my favorite blogger, each every week. The topics and categories will vary and most of the first few ones are among in my favorites and are actually in my blogroll.
The House of Turquoise – this blog interests me so much as this features home decors and home interiors accented in turquoise, and anything blue, one of my favorite colors. The blogs showcase awesome homes and lovely interiors. I even got some inspiration for my new room upstairs, that I even re-done the paint on the wall when the shade of blue was not the way I wanted. The big room upstairs (currently a playroom, but intended to be my Aliya’s room someday) has a blue turquoise wall that is so refreshing and calming.
Here’s some of the favorite photos from this blog… and the link:
The traveling feet update…
I have recently updated my flickr account for my “traveling feet”… I have already posted 60+ but I still have more in my photo folders waiting to be posted, I know I can reach 101 photos… and these are the good ones (for me). I actually get tempted to post more than one picture per specific place, as there are so many stories that trigger by just showing those pavements or background. I actually became innovative, and sometimes do “somersault” on the grass, sidewalk or the soil just to capture the view. I wish I could someday blog each of these feet…
Here are the samples…
Bantay Bell Tower, Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Calle Burgos, Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Pasacao Beach, Bicol (with ALiya)

I think almost the rest of the remaining tasks are quite long to do to be considered accomplished… But having only about 60 days more, I am reviewing them right now and I think i can commit to slash-off all of these goals, I must admit i have to do some modification (example boat ride along Pasig River is now impossible, since the river is under rehabilitation)…. for now, here are some I can say “DONE”:
51. #22 Vacation every year (Boracay ’09; Macau ’09; Singapore ’10, Sagada ’11; Puerto Princesa ’11, Coron ’11, Ilocos ’11, Bicol ’12) – not bad…
52. #19 Take Dad to Bicol (see blog) – Jan 2012
53. #28 Adventures with kids (every month)
54. #64 Visit home for the aged (Dec 2011)
55. #86 Meralco shares, keep for long-term
56. #6 Bonding with Papi
Hmmmp… Not quite… but I am not losing heart… there are tasks that just needs “proof” like compilation (101 Travelling Feet, digital scrapbook and music video) to be considered done. But what is more difficult are some of the habit forming tasks…. but will keep at it… i just have to remind myself 🙂
