    Moody Monday: Colorless + meme

    my world would be colorless without books
    and lifeless without music

    here's another tag for this week. isay passed the baton to me to post 5 random weird things about myself. i had done one of these before as i posted 5 weird habits.. but here's to add another 5 then!

    6. i have more cds than books. and the photo above shows only a fraction of what i have.

    7. i buy a book 90% of the time i pass by a bookstore. even though i have tons of other unread books calling for me in the middle of the night (well technically "day" because... read no.8)

    8. i have insomnia and im up all night. thus i work at night and sleep at daytime. and my body clock only allows me to sleep for max of 5 hours or else i get a headache.

    9. among my old high school peers (barkada), i used to be the quiet one. until i met them again a few years back and they were almost shocked that i was not as timid as they once knew. (*.* thanks!)

    10. i am a geek and my hero is dexter.

    now i tag: Anto | Teri C | Forever Young | Anonyrrie | Bluerose | Zari

    note: my entry for this week's moody monday mood is not that colorless this week..

    love liefde mahal

    February is almost over and st. valentine's day have past. but a tag from a generous and artistic friend, zari, has inspired me and many others to remember the origin of this holiday. and to quote..

    "St Valentine’s Day; a holiday named after various early Christian who became models of selfless love surviving in cruel circumstances. Yet nowadays, this holiday is mainly associated with romantic love; it is just a day to spend on chocolates, flowers, trips, lingerie, and romantic dates…I think it’s time we forget about this meaningless stuff to focus on the true meaning of this day; love, peace and global unity."

    and as i have mentioned previously, love and giving should not be shown only in one day..

    so share the love and spread the love to the world and join us..

    Here are the simple rules:
    1. If you get tagged or not (and want to play along), take some minutes to meditate about love and peace, pray for countries that are facing troubles, for those people you love and those you don’t

    2. Write a post with links to blogs that you think would like to participate

    3. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

    now i tag:
    Ambres | Deity | Vina | Anto | Isay | Ayanku | Ces | Angela |
    Annalee | Floots | Aravis | Ascender Rises Above | illoluv | The Unknown | and anyone who would love to participate..

    Malapit na matapos ang Pebrero, at ang araw ni st. valentine ay nagdaan na. pero isang tag galing sa galante at malikhaing si zari ay nag(inspire) sakin at sa marami pang iba na maalala ang pinagmulan ng pagdiriwang na ito.

    at tulad ng sinabi ko dati, ang pag-ibig at pagbibigay ay 'di dapat pinapadama sa iisang araw lang..

    kaya't padama at ipamahagi ang pagmamahal at sumali sa'min..

    illo friday: theory

    "The speed of light in a vacuum is the same for all observers, regardless of their relative motion or of the motion of the source of the light." -Albert Einstein

    my theory about light is that it can be bended by extending time.

    i cant decide on what image to post, but here are 3 more from the same series. i created them when i was watching disney on ice with my son. fun huh? whats your fave?

    Moogie Seventh Moonlight Kiss

    Illo Friday: Choose

    Always choose to hold on to your dreams..
    and if you firmly believe it,
    it will come true.

    sudden stars sudden kiss
    800 x 650 (orig.)
    MS Paint


    "...Sudden Stars"
    by: Stereolab

    Sweet smelling
    hugs and smiles
    sweet kisses
    towards me
    velvet skin
    treasured dreams
    silk and gold
    nuit d'amour
    naked soul

    After such distance
    Come to me, precious being, come to me
    After such ennui
    Come to me, delicious, enfold me
    After such a long drought
    Here a place for flowers to flourish

    But if you must,
    And if you must,
    If you must go, go--

    The wind will take you
    It will lift you
    Across the ocean

    Into the sky
    Towards the sun
    It will take you, high--

    So if you must,
    And if you must,
    If you must go, go--

    Sweet smelling wind
    L'amour de ma vie
    When you're ready
    Mon bel amour
    Simply come to me.

    update: also my entry for this week's illustration friday.
