A Photo Walk at the Pumpkin Patch

It was a nice day today despite the freezing temp. It was a cloudless blue sky and I was in the mood for a drive and ended up in a farm in Lebanon, Maine.
Unaware of what is going on all over the world - it's the Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk 2012, I decided to do a Photo Walk at Belgian Meadows Farm. It was such a wonderful experience.
 The sprawling lush farm.
These are just some of the hundreds of photos I took today that I want to share for Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk 2012. Too bad they don't qualify as contest entries since I did a photowalk all by myself.
 One of the carriages scattered all over the farm.
It was too late when I found out that there was indeed an organized photowalk in Portland Head Light this morning to capture the lighthouse during sunrise. But still even if I knew, I still can't do it because it is my race day today.
 Pumpkins on the wagon.
Pumpkins all over the ground.
 The biggest of them all.
So this post is just for "awareness" purposes. Or maybe for my own awareness since almost 35,000 plus photography enthusiasts allover the world knew about it but me. And even if I did a photowalk today, I had no clue that such photowalk was happening until my brother Japol told me about it.

Next year, I will surely joined the thousand photowalkers and be more prepared for it. Iwill make it sure too that I will sign up for it too. Wink***

i did not know about this event too until Zen told me about it, i guess not very popular in our side of the world, too bad you can't have this for competition since you walk alone, since these are very beautiful shots, Ruthi!

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
