We Love (Italian) Ice Cream



27 April 2011


So i tried this Fbskin, installed it in my computer and saw my facebook page like this. there's also an option of falling hearts or falling snow.
The video ads at the right side is distracting.
and my computer doesn't function well.

Verdict: Uninstalled the FB skin software and back to normal Facebook page! Don't try it =)

A New Journal

i was inspired by an italian friend valentinamantovaniphotography to do this 365: day-by-day thing.
my subject: my little daughter, obviously!

Lucban's First Water World Festival

In Lucban, Quezon we always have a tradition of "buhusan" which means during Easter Sunday, people gets WET by running around town with pales of water and bath every people on the streets. Real fun!

(our honorable town mayor, Bon-Bon Villasenor, who joined the event. wet obviously)

The event is new and it made the EaSTER Sunday more memorable and fun than ever.
I haven't been celebrating holy week back home for the last 17 years.
Just as expected I miss this one! =(

TGIF #25: something snoopy

It's gonna be a cartoon - feature for me today.

I love Peanuts Character. One of them is snoopy!

1) Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000 (the day after Schulz's death), continuing in reruns afterward.

2) The initial cast of Peanuts was small, featuring only Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty (not to be confused with Peppermint Patty), and a beagle, Snoopy.

3) Snoopy is a fictional character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. He is Charlie Brown's pet beagle. Snoopy began his life in the strip as a fairly conventional dog, but eventually evolved into perhaps the strip's most dynamic character — and among the most recognizable comic characters in the world. The original drawings of Snoopy were "slightly patterned" after Spike, one of Schulz's childhood dogs

4)Snoopy, whose fictional birthday has been established as October 4, made his first appearance in the strip of October 4, 1950, two days after the strip premiered. He was first identified by name on November 10. Schulz was originally going to call him "Sniffy" (as described in the 25th anniversary book), until he discovered that name was used in a different comic strip. He changed it to "Snoopy" after remembering that his late mother Dena Schulz had commented that if their family were ever to acquire a third dog, it should be called Snoopy, an affectionate term in Norwegian (the actual term is "Snuppa").

5) On December 12, 1958, Snoopy slept on top of his doghouse, rather than inside it, for the first time. Thereafter, Snoopy was seldom seen to venture inside the doghouse, except to retrieve something, instead spending the bulk of his time sitting or lying on its gable roof.

Why God Created Eve

10. God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the garden because he would not ask for directions.

9. God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and hand him the remote.

8. God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him.

7. God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor's dentist's or haircut appointment by himself.

6. God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the garbage on the curb.

5. God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing.

4. As the Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he left his tools.

3. Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.

2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone."

And finally, the #1 reason why God created Eve....

1. When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched his head, and said, "I can do better than that!"
