La Playa Outside Barcelona City And Paella

Barcelona13

 If you happen to visit Barcelona take the train at Plaça Catalunya towards Mataró (it only takes 20 minutes), jump off the train at Montgat Nord and go to one of Barcelona’s best beaches, Montgat’s beach. It’s not that crowded, so if you just want to relax and doze off, you can!

I had the pleasure to experience the ambiance of one of their awesome powder rooms…  Neat and clean isn’t it?

I was lucky too to catch some beach boys having fun and showing-off their sport.

France… Food… Fire

 France…  Paris

You know the feeling when your plane finally landed and you felt the wheels touched the ground?  Oh, you would say, “Thank God, I’m here!” And how you would like to clap your hands to express how wonderful was your flight.  Have you ever felt that way?  Well, with me…  Almost all the time…  :)

This is one of the images that are posted on the walls at the baggage claim area (Aeoroport charles degaulle)

So last 3 days ago V picked me up in the airport and before we headed to our hotel, we decided to have our lunch first.  We passed this Chinese Restaurant where we dined sometime last year, so that I asked him if we would be having some chinese food for lunch.  But V suggested that we should go to an Italian Restautant this time, to where we haven’t had gone before, and it was like two blocks away from the  Chinese Restaurant.

Food

I really enjoyed my food plus the wine of course…

Then smoke all over…  We could smell the fire…

Fire

And you know where was the fire?

Oh you wouldn’t believe it, but The Chinese Restaurant was on fire.  So I took my camera right away and started shooting… The Firemen came to the rescue at once!

I gathered that the fire started in the kitchen.

Well, I did not catch the fire because it was put out so quickly by the firefighters and here are some of the photos I shot:

Smiling Thoughts…

Forever Youthful

 

 

 

When I met you I tasted life
Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe

Never again would I strife
For your love and care are so deep

Smiling thoughts of you conquered me
In the morn when I make my coffee,

When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,
And everywhere it’s you I see,

Along the road, those lovely trees,
At my work with my Apple breeze,

These words I’m writing now, I grace
Because you put smile on my face

You’re the best part of my everyday
And at night when I lay down to sleep

Still there you are all over me
Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!

2010

V and I met in IMVU,  January, 2010.   Our avatars just clicked together, hehehe.  After 6 months dating on the web, we decided to meet in person.

He introduced me to his family and friends.   Our True Romance started here in the Land Of Love- Paris. I visited him 3x in this year.  21 days in July.  A week in September. And another week in November.

Yiheyyy! :)

More Selfies With Photoshop

It’s EED here.  The Holy month.  I prefer to spell it “EED” rather than “EID” as it commonly spelled.  Because when you reverse it, it would read like Die.

During this month we usually work in the night and it gives me some time to take some selfie pics of me and at the same time do some retouch using photoshop… hahaha

I find it very fun in doing so.  Any comment?  Yay! :lol:

Amazing Recovery Of Patrick The Pit Bull After He Was Dumped In A Trash Chute

An emaciated Pit Bull discovered at the bottom of a trash chute in Newark 3 years ago, moments before the trash compactor would have killed him, has made a miraculous recovery and now weighs a healthy 50lbs.
Rescued the day before St Patrick’s Day in 2011, Patrick as he was quickly named, weighed a shocking 19lbs and was on death’s doorstep when volunteers from the Associated Humane Societies took him to the emergency room at Garden State Veterinary Specialists. Source

011

While the trauma of being tied to a railing for seven days and then dumped in a bin has inevitably left emotional and physical scarring, those who know Patrick talk only of how loving and trusting he is.

02

Though understandably Patrick remains nervous around strangers.

03

Hospital staffers have chronicled his progress on their website and a Facebook page has garnered fans from around the world.

04

He’s received hundreds of emails, donations, gifts and letters from those inspired by his tale of survival.

5

His ribcage protruded, he weighed about 20 pounds – roughly 30 pounds less than average – and was covered in sores with parts of skin hanging off him, according to Patricia Smillie-Scavelli, Dr Scavelli’s wife and the administrator of the hospital.

4

‘Everyone thought that, you bring in an animal like that, that looks like it’s really just a corpse, you put it to sleep,’ Mrs Smillie-Scavelli said.

‘But of course, he looked up at you with those eyes, and you say: How can you give up on this dog? How can you, when he’s not giving up on life? So, we gave him that second chance, and he has just run with it, and thrived.’

3

After weeks of emergency measures that included a transfusion of three pints of dog blood, a special diet, medicine and physical therapy, Patrick began to gain weight and eat solid food.

Wow! It really is amazing!

Mini-Elite-Transparent Plastic Cord Holder

BY YOURS TRULY :)

Tooth doctors and/or Orthodontists and mortals who wear braces are very familiar with this “power chain or e-chain” material:

Repurposed your used e-chain plastic holder into a unique headphone cord holder.
The length of the extra cord of your headphone can be easily adjusted
to your preferred length from your pocket or purse to your ear.

Wow, this is way too cool! Isn’t it?
It’s very neat and classy looking with my 
iPhone.
It will look great too with iPod. 
Try it yourself :D
How about you guys, do you have any repurposed  items,
materials or products that you would like to share?

A Little Calvin In Every Child

8

A Little Calvin In Every Child was one of the first images on All That Is Interesting when we launched in 2010 and has remained one of the most popular. And it’s easy to see why: the hilarious mimicry of Calvin reminds us exactly why it’s great to be a kid.

Asperatus Clouds Over New Zealand

??????????????????????

This fascinatingly bizarre photograph garnered an even weirder amount of online attention, where it was featured in several conspiracy-oriented websites that claimed it was evidence of government manipulation of the weather.

The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask

10

One of our favorite articles in the archives, The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask details life in Miyakejima, Japan, where an active volcano had spewed poisonous gas for the last two decades. Rather than leave, the 3,000 inhabitants decided to wear gas masks 24/7 so they could remain on the island.

The Casting Call For Smells Like Teen Spirit

This delightful gem needs little explanation: it’s the casting call for the music video for Smells Like Teen Spirit.

McDonalds: it’s everywhere and anywhere — this beautiful visualization of every location in America proves it.

Who knew that a) you could get behind a frozen waterfall and b) they would have such magnificent colors?

The End Of The Earth

The Nullarbor Cliffs literally feel like the end of the earth, though they are really just the end of Australia.

Afghanistan In The 1960s

Our most popular gallery of 2013, Afghanistan in the 1960s is a staggering photo essay on what life was once like in Afghanistan.

The Man Who Refused To Salute Hitler

1

The story of August Landmasser is amazing as it is tragic. Landmasser fell in love with a Jewish woman who, before they could marry, was sent to a concentration camp. Before he would be sent to a labor camp, this picture captured Landmasser refusing to partake in the Nazi salute during a public rally in 1936.

The Near-Extinction Of The American Bison

Once numbering in the hundreds of millions in the United States (that’s right, hundreds of millions), bison were hunted down to a mere thousand by 1890. Most of the story of how this happened can be inferred by the picture above.

Mother Is Heaven

My Mom

 

Mother is HEAVEN
Subsistence pal.  True-hearted
WOMAN… Full of LIFE!

My Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday.  She was already gone but I see and talk to  her in my dreams, whenever I seek guidance or some advise. And most often her advises worked on me.
For instance, one of them, like 2 years ago, I noticed a little dark spot on my upper right cheek and it was getting darker and darker.   I applied different bleaching products that was prescribed to me by my dermatologist, but none of which ever help to fade away the dark spot.  And then one night I dreamed that I was with my mom and she told me the medication that I should used instead. Believe it or not, the result was amazing.  It worked!

It really feels good to know that she’s still around whenever I need a mother touch.  Yes, I know I am already a mother but it just feels so joyful to have my mother with me even only through my dreams.

A Blessed Birthday
You’ll always be missed and loved
I love you Mamang.

I won’t be able to be with my kids this Christmas but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.

The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.

A New Chapter Begins…

I feel great to tell everyone that I am now single.

Three years after my separation (2005), I have filed a marriage annulment (2008).

At long last this year 2013, last September 30, the court has decided and ordered that my marriage was null and void.

I am so happy as ever.

Happy because a new chapter begins in my life and I can move on forward.

Some of you may wonder and would ask me, “do you have any regrets at all?  Do you feel sad?

Well, honestly I do not have any regrets at all.  I have four beautiful, loving and responsible kids.  They are now all grown-ups and as a mother I am so fulfilled that I manage to put them all to school.  A year from now my first daughter, Maria Ahtalia will soon finish her Dentistry course and become a successful Dental Surgeon or Orthodontist.  My second daughter, Greta Garda will soon graduate in IT course 5 months from now to become a successful Digital Arts Designer. My third daughter, Tajah Jireh will soon to become a famous Fashion Designer, 3 years from now.  And my son, Picardo Leo, who is now in Secondary Schoool wanted to become the most wanted Architect one day.

I sounded so positive!  But that is most of mothers wished  for their children, aren’t we all?

Sad? Yes, there is a little sadness in a way that my marriage for 12 years did not work to  last.  But ending it, is the best thing to do and very smart move and I never and I won’t ever regret it.  I have the rest of my life now to look forward to and so I must make the most of it and feel thankful to my God in every moment as possible and ask His guidance and wisdom on how I take charge of my life and make a difference.

I believe that everytihnig happens for a reason.  I have a full life and I take these life challenges in a positive outlook. I move on with my life. I keep adjusting to needs and keeping all vital areas of my life in balance. I will continue to passionately pursue my mission or goal and I will never ever quit.

Life goes on and a new chapter begins. :)

 

Last week November 30… My kids and I went to go house hunting.  And we wished to get and own a Victorian kind of house in this beautiful Village and Resort Community to live by one day :)

Animals Know Better

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother’s cub’s, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species, will take on the care of a different species. The only ‘orphans’ that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?

Take a look…

Now, please tell me one more time…

Why can’t the rest of the world get along?
