a not so creepy crawler

if a caterpillar looks like this, would it want to become a butterfly?


just the size of my thumb. can you guess whose work this is? according to mica this is a caterpillar and a catepillar it is. this is one of the many instance that mica surprised me with her art skills and imagination-kids have loads of it. they say let them play, learn and dream.

Winter

in the middle of two swimming pools





it's november and the morning chills get into my skin so for addition warmth i added this blue sheila/scarf to my outfit. i love the combination of the solid colors of orange and blue here. these photos were taken in an open space at our building which I guess is suppose to be a small garden too, it is in between floors of the building which is quite a fantastic idea but the thing is it is a bit poorly maintained unlike the one on the lower floor. i'd only hope that the building management will pay attention to it a bit more, im sure with a little imagination this area can be transformed into something more admirable. btw the person behind all this beautiful shots is my colleague, of course i did not produce this pics myself, please meet my buddy the ever beautiful Jeah. woot!

shoes and clothes makes others happy, photos does it for me









these photos were taken at a small garden in my work place. greenery in dubai is a luxury and it cost so much money to keep the plants thriving in this part of the planet. they need a life support that is water pipes/tubes to water them from time to time without the help of a gardener. the clothes i wore here is nothing special, just wanted to capture the look to keep it in my wardrobe capsule

Vacation

my blog suffered from a long halt. it went for a three week hybernation just like its owner who is in a vacay mood already after holloween. i am (we are) very excited because we are "coming home for christmas"

normally our christmas tree would be standing in some corner of our dwelling by now like the rest of the years but since we are celebrating the yuletide season in the philippines with our loved ones, we skip the christmas tree decorating tradition we used to have here in dubai. we are saving those precious moments done with the family back home and my mom for one is actually waiting for us to decorate the house.

what's keeping us busy right now is shopping for presents and more presents. it is more costly to come home in december than any other time of the year and i think almost all ofws can attest to that but we cannot have it compromised with all the joys and love one can receive and one can give to the family and relatives during this season.

mica is counting down the days, she can't wait to see all her cousins, aunties and uncles and of course her grannies. I missed mom so much and it is a must that i see her, she just recovered from  illness and i am teribbly longing to be with her make sure she's alright, ferald on the other hand didn't set foot since five years and the dude needs a break. this vacation is also very special because we will be taking prince home for the first time and introduce the little guy to the family.

our excitement grows day after day and me and ferald is looking forward to all the things we want to do togethter back home. I can imagine the all authentic pinoy food we can eat again, the places to visit and bring the kids, to experience old pinoy culture and tradition during the holiday season. much has changed in the last five years that we have not seen our provinces but it's home and we will never grew unfamiliar with it.
