- the musical vocalizations of a bird or birds, typically uttered by a male songbird in characteristic bursts or phrases for territorial purposes.
I was attracted to my dad’s mini garden the other day because of a birdsong and look at what I found…
I was actually taking trying to take a peek at my neighbor’s new guitar wall mounts from musicians friend when I accidentally saw this bird instead. Just kidding. Haha! I really heard a birdsong and saw this fella jumping from one branch to another. I think he’s eating the berries from my dad’s plants. My dad always tells me he’s got berry plants but the birds always beat him to the fruits. He’s actually happy about it and I am, too.
Here’s something I haven’t about in a very long time, in fact, I realized I only one post about it… panography.
For those who are not familiar with it, Panography, or Joiners, is a photographic technique in which one picture is assembled from several overlapping photographs.
Here’s one from my trip to Thailand… the Chedi Phukhao Thong in Ayutthaya. The photo was taken by my friend (I wasn’t interested in photography, yet, that time.) This one’s a more obvious panography compared to my first post. You can actually two separate photographs here. Click the image to view in full size.
Phu-Khao-Thong Pagoda (Golden Mount Chedi)
Chedi Phukhao Thong is a 50-metre chedi, or Buddhist tower, in the village of Phukhao Thong near Ayutthaya in central Thailand. Visitors can climb as far a landing halfway up the chedi, from which the surrounding rice fields and the town of Ayutthaya can be seen.
Here’s my picture for the 7th week of Project Love Me. It’s a little sneak peak, too, of what I’m going to post in the next few days.
That’s me alone inside the ballroom of the the Manila Metropolitan Theater. I went on a tour of some of the heritage sites in Manila last Sunday and I’ll be posting about it bit by bit in the next few days.
So, I’m already on the 7th week of my PLM. It feels so exciting because this is actually the first time that I’ve lasted this long on a long-term project. I’m now thinking of what to post next week, keeping in mind, of course, that the photo is supposed to be about my week and not just any random shot. I’m cleaning my room (again) so how about something about it? How about me getting my inspiration from the online store for cabinets, Ovis? Well, I will actually celebrate my b-day this week so it should be something about that.
For the 6th week of my Project Love Me, here’s me with my new babies and my neglected plant box.
I bought this at a weekend market near where I live. They’re so pretty, I couldn’t resist buying them. I’m planning to mix them with a couple more different cacti plants and will fix that neglected plant box. I saw this mini cacti garden that has a desert theme and I’m planning on copying it. Haha.
This particular cactus is sedum rubrotinctum or more commonly known as the jelly bean plant or pork and beans. It’s very easy to propagate, in fact, you don’t really have to do anything special because the fallen beans or leaves will root on its own.
Will update you all with this mini garden of mine.
Regarding the bus accident near Bontoc, Philippines on February 7, 2014, some posts on Facebook really irritates me. One posted about how unsafe it is for 16 people to ride a 14-seater van pertaining to his rival in the tour industry. It irritates me how he used the tragedy to target his rival. The other kept insisting to join the tour of the first poster because it’s safer and kept insisting that spending a little more is safer. It’s irritating because, first, some people don’t have the means to rent a van and taking a public utility bus is their only option. Second, some people were not on tour, so, why join a tour?
Anyway, enough rants… I just want to share this article that I read regarding the accident. The article describes the passengers of that certain bus as dreamers and it is really sad once you know more about these people. A couple if lines that really saddened me is this…
…the bus was full of adventurous people in the prime of their lives. Among those who died were artistic souls who sought to connect their art with the real world.
I’m familiar with some of the names of the deceased and it really is true. Praying for the eternal repose of the departed ones and hoping they’ll get justice soon.
