In which I share some photos via photo tags

12 January 2010

I am still recharging from the excitement and lack of sleep brought about by last Saturday's Holiday Party.  It did not help that I still went to work after that. Combine that with the fact that it is my rest day today so I was just holed up in my parents' house all day, and you have the formula for no-interesting-topic-to-blog-about. Good thing I have tags to answer and blog awards to claim, now I'll have something to talk about. Ü

But first of all I would like to thank you guys for thinking of me when distributing these tags and awards. It makes me happy knowing that you remember me. They are much appreciated!

On to the first two tags, shall we?

Both of these are from Cha. Thanks Cha! ♥♥

1st Photo Tag's Rules
1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I actually already did this before but wanted to do it again. In my desktop I have a folder filled with photos I got from the Internet. Mostly they are photos of fairies, whimsical stuff, shoes, and comic strips. This one I got from Mo's blog. For my non-Filipino readers, Mo Twister is a DJ of Magic 89.9 who hosts the Monday - Thursday morning radio show Good Times with Mo with DJs Grace Lee and Mojo Jojo. I love the trio's banter and Mo's wise quips. Their topics are not always for General Patronage and they may play the same songs over and over again but I love  their undeniable chemistry. I guess it's a good thing that my rest days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays since it gives me the chance to listen to them twice a week. Ü

For this one I am tagging everyone who hasn't done this tag yet. Ü

2nd Photo Tag's Rules:
1. Post a picture from your childhood (less than 13 years old).
2. Write something about the picture.
3. Tag your friends and readers.

Okay okay, I know I cheated on this one. I am sorry, but I lost all my childhood photos from the big fire that burned our house on January 1, 2001. Aside from losing my favorite Barbie dolls and books, it was even more devastating to lose those photos since those can never be replaced. I can always buy toys and books again but how can I get those mementos again. :(

Before I get even more depressed, this photo is the earliest photo I have a digital copy of. All of the others from when I was 14 years old were in celluloid film. So, sorry for not following the rules of the tag but I know you all understand. Right? :) This photo was taken on my 18th birthday celebration. I had a traditional debut party, but no cotillion. I wore a purple iridescent tube gown (with a petticoat underneath! cool!) with matching shawl and bag. I also wore a tiara. :) I think this is the first night I felt beautiful and so loved. My bestfriend Jerome was my escort, and all my family and friends attended. I still keep the memories of that special night in my heart. :)

I am passing this photo tag to Ana, Andhari, Mel, Leah, Toothfairy, Ed, Manju, Kym, Meream, Tiara, Joan, and Belle. I would like to see your baby/ childhood photos! :)

Thank you and I hope you are having a fabulous week! ♥♥

  15. Krissy, that is such a beautiful picture of you. Love the dress! I'm sorry to read you lost all your childhood photos and books in a fire. That is very sad indeed. It's one of my big fears you know, that is why I constantly check all the electrical appliances in our house. Hope you're keeping your memories alive...



  16. Wow, I wish I had some kind of debut party! But then again I don't have that many party-ish friends so never mind. You look great in that pic!

    Your "childhood" pic looks so cute :P
    like a princess <3

  18. @ Duni: Thank you so much :) Yes, it is very important to be careful, ever since the fire happened we all learned to check all electrical outlets. But then again the fire started in a neigbor's house and there was no way we could have prevented that :(

    @ Nashe^: Thank you! Oh I know other people don't mind dressing up for parties :)

    @ Kay: Aren't those turtles the cutest, I still LOL at them :D Thanks Kay :)
