Clothes Swapping

My Readers Digest My Reader’s March Edition has finally arrived and I have learned the newest fashion trend that is happening in the world right now: Clothes Swapping. What is Clothes Swapping? As I have understood from the word itself, I know that you needed to swap your wardrobe for another one. It is another way to save our planet earth, you know why? Imagine just how many materials, labour and energy can be saved from making new clothes again. As for me, this is such a great idea and if we had it here in the Philippines I would be glad to join events where we can bring our stuffs, clothes, bags and shoes that we do not like anymore but can still be used or are in good condition so that we can swap it for things which we would love to try out.

Calling all mommies out there, are you willing to swap your clothes and your children’s for used clothes that are still in good condition? Why don’t we try this one out?

A Gift to Drink For

Last January, I received this belated Christmas gift from a friend. She knows I am a coffee-addict and she wanted me to try this tea out because she said, as I quote her, “It’s a tea but taste like coffee”. So I try it out.

It does look like tea to me, the taste is awesome. Though it doesn’t taste like coffee for me.

GT:Crying Time

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then

Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure
I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
How I’d love, love, love to dance with my father again

Ooh, ooh

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah, yeah
Then finally make me do just what my mama said

Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he
Would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance
One final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love to dance with my father

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear her, mama cryin’ for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know I’m prayin’ for much too much
But could You send back the only man she loved
I know You don’t do it usually
But Lord, she’s dyin’ to dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream


*if there is one song that could make me cry it is this song. i don’t want to explain why or how because i am at the moment admitted in the hospital. please bear with me.*

Travel with Kids

When traveling with your child I suggest you bring these things:

  • Food – when I say FOOD, I don’t just mean biscuits and water but also rice and viand (fried chicken or something that is dry). Because children always ask for food and you don’t expect to find just any clean restaurant in every place that you have gone to. Bring mineral water too, it is quite expensive to buy just anywhere or stores near bus terminals.
  • Tissue Paper and Baby Wipes – you don’t know when the kids will spill something into their shirts o in the car seats. Always be ready with it, because sometimes kids tend to spill water, chocomilk or just anything they get their hands on unless its trophies they are holding on.
  • Extra clothing – not just for the kids but for you also. When you are on a vacation for 3 days, bring clothes that are enough for 5 days, because you don’t know when their stomach will act out and they will vomit on you.
  • Ointments and medicines – bring some for safety’s sake. We don’t know the weather when we travel and it is always safe to bring the necessary medicines for fever, cough and colds, and flu.
  • Umbrella and hats – whether its sunny or rainy, it is always safe to bring such ammunition against the changing weather.

You can add something here if you think I have lacking elements in my bag.

Is Photography For Me?

For people who are close to me, you probably know that I am planning to buy a DSLR. I have not gone to photography classes or sessions and have not taken up a course in photography for that matter. I am thinking of buying one in order to discover more about it, taking new horizons, going to the next level. I am a blogger and yes I needed a camera for there are things that I would love to share to my readers and viewers that needed a picture more than descriptions about the subject.

Yes, DSLRs are pretty heavy and they are expensive too, but some blogger friends and off-line friends that I have asked about it said that it is an investment that can help me through. In time I know, I can earn from it or if I don’t like it anymore, I could sell it again.

I have no idea what brand and kind of DSLR I would buy because I am still weighing the pros and cons of having one.
I just want to share with you a picture of a small flower I have taken using my point and shoot digicam, and maybe tell me if I need to pursue my career as a Photographer. (The flower is so small, so maybe it s under macro photography, what you think?)
