Wow, it’s been two months since I last did a thirteen! The thirteenth edition shows you what I carry around with me everyday. I didn’t take a shot of my bag because, well, for no reason. I just forgot. I do know that I intentionally did not take a shot of all of these things while they were actually sitting in my bag because you would see how disorganized my stuff was. Haha!
Nah, seriously. The reason why I attempted to fuse plastic was because I wanted to make a bag organizer from that material. I already had one but I could use another of different dimensions; plus the other one is made of thicker material.
Anyway, without further ado, here are thirteen (or more) things found inside my bag (in the order in which I snapped them using my camera phone):
1) Pink pill box - Inside are my FitRight capsules.
2) My purse - with several other things inside.
3) Lip gloss - These are my current favorites but there are actually more in there!
4) Wipes - wet and dry tissue. You'll never know when you'll need these.
5) Chocolates and mints - For your needed sugar fix.
6) Comb - This is what replaced the ancient but very reliable Hair Doctor I recently broke.
7) More kikay stuff - brush, pressed powder, concealer, oil blotter, and 8 ) some shimmer lotion
9) Scent - Nothing like White Musk to lift my spirits!
10) Set of keys
11) Pens - Do I really have four of them in there?
12) My Sony-Ericsson earphone to match my phone!
13) My tiny notepad that I made myself. From scraps of paper left over from the journals I gave away for Christmas; with covers I put together myself from scrap kits.
So there you go, thirteen things found inside my bag. That makes for quite a big bag. Oh!!! I remember what’s missing here – my reusable bag! I had it washed and so it’s not back in my bag at the time of this post. Oh well. 🙂

Here’s a photo mosaic for a meme I found over at Dee’s blog. I had fun playing along and if you decide to make one, show it to me okay? If you’re wondering why the last block is empty, it’s just because I don’t have a flickr account and a search for verabear yielded no results. Hehe.
The instructions are below if you decide to make one too!
The concept: 1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search. 2. Using only the first page of results, and pick one image. 3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into Big Huge Lab’s Mosaic Maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.
The questions: 1. What is your first name? 2. What is your favorite food? right now? 3. What high school did you go to? 4. What is your favorite color? 5. Who is your celebrity crush? 6. What is your favorite drink? 7. What is your dream vacation? 8. What is your favorite dessert? 9. What do you want to be when you grow up? 10. What do you love most in life? 11. What is one word that describes you? 12. What is your flickr name?
This is Alfred’s Photo Mosaic. He gave me his answers to the questions and I ran the search and picked the photos from Flickr.
He turned 29 yesterday – Happy Birthday babe! 🙂
We spent the entire day with his family yesterday, something that we’ve never done before ever. So his birthday was also the day I got to meet his entire family (including cousins and nephews and nieces).
On my way to their home in Pasay, I bought a cake (ube, by their request) and my dad was kind enough to drive me to the store and then to the train station. Alfred was supposed to pick me up at the Taft station and we would walk to their house but he wasn’t there yet when I arrived. I called him and I got the feeling there was going to be an entourage coming to pick me up. I wasn’t wrong.
His two nieces, Ena and Pauline were there, plus his nephew Lance whom I’ve met and spent some time with before. So I met the two giggly girls and they were really nice sweet ones. At their home, I met his two older brothers and the girls’ mom. They were all really warm and welcoming.
So we had lunch (his mom cooked Bulalo, Dinuguan, Hamonado and Pancit – all were very very yummy, no wonder he has a tummy like that). The plan was to have lunch there, and then go our own way after. But since I felt like they went out of their way to spend time with their Uncle Dodong and to meet me, why not spend more time with the kids? I asked if they wanted to come with us and see a movie – they did! We went to SM Mall of Asia and saw Kung Fu Panda. It’s a hilarious movie, comparable to Shrek! Haha 🙂
After the movie, we headed back to their house because a cousin was there waiting. I met him before but that was the first time I met his girlfriend. Later on, this cousin’s older sister, her husband and two teenage kids (boys) came along too. It was a full house, literally.
There were lots of laughter and cases of beer. I drank with them too though I’m not a real beer drinker. There were lots of stories to share and to catch up on. We ended up staying until midnight.
What is Love? What a grade school slum book question. Hehe.
Gannstagged me with this meme (weeks ago) where one is supposed to define love without using cliches. You should read his definition(s). Sweet. The day I read his post, I remembered feeling so loved just the night before.
Alfred spends a few nights every week here. We’ve found that that’s the best way we could spend quality time with each other without being grouchy with each other. Anyway, as we tucked in to sleep (actually he already was asleep), I complained about having been bitten by a mosquito on my elbow. He reached over and scratched it for me. Aaaww. Haha. Oh yes, he was still sleeping. And I didn’t ask him.
So what’s love? Love is willingly going out of your way to do something for another. Um-hm. But it’s when you don’t feel that it’s an inconvenience, when it’s not being done out of obligation, when you do it with all of your being and there’s no conflict in or outside of you. Yup, that’s love.
Is that a cliche? Anyhow, I am tagging Kiss, Tracy and Dauphine. I hope you ladies play along!
Anyway, I signed up for the Live Search Club. Okay, it’s not a real club. There are tons of games there that are powered by Windows Live Search. You earn tickets while playing, and those tickets can be redeemed for real prices. I’ve got my sights on a Kitchen Aid mixer or a 30Gb Zune player. I don’t know if I’ll actually get either one though. Haha. While playing the games on there, I thought about how cool it would be if my nieces would just play those games instead of browsing through Friendster. It would be a much better use of their time. I learned a lot playing!
One of the games is Celebrity Reveal. There are five trivia questions that would serve as clue as to who is the featured celebrity. One of those was Dolly Parton. Through the questions, and the search results that came out in Live Search, I learned about her Imagination Library. It’s really a cool project for children’s literacy. They mail free books to kids every month, from birth up to their fifth birthday. What a great way to encourage reading and learning. It started in her hometown but it’s now all over the US, and also in Canada and the UK.
I hope there is something like that here in the Philippines. I wonder how I can start something similar? If I win the lottery, I swear, I will start something like it. Makes me want to sit with like-minded friends and brainstorm about a program we can actually make happen.
Reminded me of the pre-school classes we taught as part of a child rights and abuse prevention program we planned and implemented years back. The concept was about the importance of education in keeping kids away from abuse and exploitation. I miss my past life sometimes. 🙂
