An Evening Shot

I enjoy the beauty of Christmas lights.  So i feel so fascinated to see that there was a Christmas decor up in the hilltop.  It’s 2009 and way back my time 1990-1994, i’ve never seen a Christmas decor as grand as what i saw that Saturday evening. I wish am able to capture the whole of it but my camera is so small and old that it was not possible.

After taking some shots of what i saw outside, i went inside the auditorium to take pictures of the kids having fun in the socials.  The lighting fixtures were not that great so the result of my photos were not clear. Poor lighting plus low mpeg camera = poor evening indoor shots.

See?  I said so.

10 New Year’s Resolution

I am not really a maker of resolutions because i failed to stick to them. Maybe i was just too serious in my past resolutions. I don’t have plans to make one this 2010 but listening to a TV program this morning – i promise to make a manageable resolution this year.

And the ten here will just be a start.

1. I will eat malunggay at least 3-4 times a week.

2. Lessen on fats in my cooking.

3. Eat rice once a day except on special occasions.

4. Exercise at least 4 times a week.

5. Eat more fruits with the vegetables.

6. I should not miss breakfast.

7. Smile more

8. Be thankful daily for all the blessings.

9. Lessen unnecessary worrying if i  fail to buy copper kitchen sinks this year.  I love to have one of these cool sinks but it’s not in my priority list for the coming year.  Once settled, for sure i will purchase my dream kitchen sink.

10. Live a healthy lifestyle

The Final Week of 2009 Meme

Yay good thing am not altogether missing this meme! Yahoo here i come with my answers.

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Nik Dirga at the blog Spatula Forum. Nik is an American journalist who now lives in New Zealand with his kiwi wife and son. He does not say where he found the meme. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
