Wonderful Times!!!

Kudos, Where Were You is not on its 4th! I'm so proud of your Gab!

Gab asks...Where were you...

(1)...last Saturday (April 26, 2008)?

I was with Yummy the whole time... We have been so busy wit work and all that we just had to spend time with each other...

I will not talk so much, it would be TMI...all I can say is, I had a great time with my Yummy!

(2)...ten days ago (April 19, 2008)?

You got
with #1 Gab...where was I last Sat...I was in CLOUD 9...or make that 7th Heaven!!!

Seriously, I was in Bohol having the time of my life...

Why? How come? Well...I did some things which I have never tried in my life...

First of all, I have endured staying in a not 5 star place...THAT folks was such an achievement for Mariposa! :P

Then, for the first time, I got into a small boat...really small!

That's me with the nice guy who was manning the boat... The boat was so small that it can only accomodate 3 people...the driver and 2 passengers...the most! There is another person there...yet, he is a private let's remove him from the scene! LOL

I was this close to the water!!! And we were going to that island!

This is the's called Aurora! I can only imagine how beautiful the sunrise would be here! Arrgghhh!!!

One of the many rice fields we passed by on our way to another city, still in the same island, Bohol!

Our final stop, Panglas Island Beach Resort! The view is nice...yet, I've been to places like this...better ones in fact, yet, it's always the FUN that counts!

THAT weekend made me realize ALOT of things...that the yacht (SJI, Red, Vince and Kate, you won!) is not the that small...I was into a SMALL boat!!! YET...sorry gys, but I have to say, the small boat was more FUN! :P

(3)...a month ago (March 29, 2008)?

A good friend of mine got here and I had to picked him up at the airport...had lunch with him, helped him with his groceries and all! Can't really remember the details...all I'm left with is that nice feeling of seeing a friend again!

WOW, that was amazing! ALL fond memories there!!! I'm inviting you all to try journey with us...join the FUN, visit Live From Waterloo for more time travel stories!

TMI Tuesday #132

I have not done TMI Tuesday for weeks now...and I miss it! NOW that I'm TMIs are back again!!! LOL

So here goes...

1. Early bird or night owl?

I can be both, I don't mind getting so I usually do every Sunday to jog! With the type of job I have though, I can say that I'm a night owl.

2. Where was the first place you ever had sex?

It was in a nice hotel, with nice bed! LOL

3. On a scale of 1-10, how happy are you? (1 is lowest, 10 is highest)

At this point in my life I would give myself an 8!

4. Are you more submissive or dominant?

It depends in which aspect are we talking work...and in business and professional dealings and I'm dominant and as pushy as hell...YET in other things, I'd love to believe I'm submissive!

5. Do you believe in love at first sight?

No, I don't believe in love at first sight...and I can say that impressions can be tricky at times!

Bonus (as in optional): Describe your bed time habits. What side do you sleep on? What do you usual wear? Any night time rituals?

Ha ha ha! I want to invite a guest writer to answer this... I'm crazy to the point that you may not wish to be in my bed...I can be restless as hell at times...and tossing and turning before passing out is one of my bed habits...others are...I need to be under the blanket...I need pillows to hold...and I usually stay at the edge of the matter how big my bed is! LOL

Monday Fever: I'm Back People!!!

I'm back and in as much as I wanted it to be back with a bang...I just can't seem to find the inspiration to do so...maybe I am still tired...maybe I still have to get the feel of blogging again...or maybe I'm just too emotionally wasted right now...or just of those days!

So, after missing the action for weeks, I'm bringing back Monday Fever tradition! So, get ready folks as I bring to you 3 exciting Monday activities in 1 post! LOL

FUN Monday today is hosted by
"...take me on your favourite walk. In words or pictures. Or both of course! Tell me why it's your favourite and point out things of interest on the way."

This sounds easy and could have been easy for me had I read this days ago, or even yesterday. I've had some favorite walking spots, and with my POWER bar so down right now, I don't think I can give justice to them through words...

I love to walk...and I used to walk a's just that right now, only a particular walk gets to my mind and it makes me chuckle!

Last weekend I was in Bohol and that trip reminds of two walks...short walks but trust me it was like forever that moment! Ha ha ha! We were on our way to visit an island across the resort, and on the way to the boat, I was so hesitant to step on the water for fear that my slippers would get messed...yes, I'm that crazy...crazy to mind my slippers and crazy to bring a slippers/ sandals not suitable for beach! So this good friend of mine, offered to carry me to the boat! LOL Yup, he did carry me through folks! It was so funny because I never tried THAT in my life...good thing it was not in Cebu or it would have been all over the paper the next day! Then, on the way home, at the port/pier/ quay whatever you want to call it, I was so tired and HE carried me again! LOL Yummy...peace...I told you about this and I just have post it here because it still make me laugh so hard and blush! I wish I have photos to show...but if only I'm that good to put words here that would give enough justice to those two scenes...I bet you would be LOL as well and envious too! :P

So that folks is my FUN Monday walk this week...

MANIC Monday today is about RIP. This is another challenge!

All I can think of are the RIPtides that sweep us out to sea before we know it, before we can account for it. The waves of remembrance did not come gently though... I was throbbing, shaking, struggling hoping to find some semblance of calm in the RIPtides that were tossing me about like a piece of shore-bereft driftwood. It was a hell ride minus an off ramp...A splayed fragmentation of memories with YOU! And right now, we are still together at this moment only now in digitized space, regardless of how we might conceptualize the being of the past...and that of time to come!

I was blubbering I know...I just miss someone right now...a very good friend of mine! So, my MUSIC Monday is for YOU! I miss you...

Dreaming of You

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I'd stay up and think of you
And I'd wish on a star
That somewhere you are thinking of me too

Cuz I'm dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Then here in my room,
Dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you even see me
And I wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes
Would you see what's inside?
Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close
But so far, all I have are dreams of you
So, I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you(Yes, I do)

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Then here in my room,
Dreaming about you and me

Ahhh...I can't stop dreaming of you
Ahhh...I can't stop dreamin

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I'd stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe that you came up to me
And said, "I love you; I love you too"

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
Till tomorrow, and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Then here in my room,
Dreaming with you endlessly...

My 40 Things!

I have been absent I know...and as much as I would like to tiptoe my way back here...I just can't! I just can't help but say it out loud: I MISS YOU ALL!

I thank those who dropped me some message here and in email wishing and sending me happy thoughts. I really appreciate it...very much!

The past weeks life has been quite crazy for me, in all the sense you can come up with. I have been so busy, I have been skipping meals, missing sleep, going to places...doing crazy short, Mariposa was fluttering around...trying her wings...enjoying life!

I have a lot of things to tell you all, I just have no clue where to begin and how...yet I am hoping I can slowly share with you my fun and adventure the past weeks in the days to come.

Meanwhile, I'm doing this Meme fun post I got from Chani of Finding My Way Home (Thailand Gal). I love her answers and was thinking, I should try doing it...and just so timely since I'm still trying to recollect myself and the blogger in me!

6. Five of my bad habits:

- I curse A LOT!

- Too clingy...I have a hard time letting go of things/ people...even when I know I should!

- I'm not mindful of my finances!

- Drinking coke early in the morning!

7. Five places I have lived:

- Cebu

- Bohol, another island here, that if you count vacations as living! LOL

- LA for a few weeks only! (I was trying it out...did not work for me!)

- Sydney for a few months...or was it a vacation too?!

I can't reached five...unless the places I've visited for days/ weeks will be fact, I think my only answer here is just CEBU! LOL

8. Five jobs I've had:

Where Were You?!

Gabriel of Live from Waterloo is starting a game called Where Were You!
Mechanics of the game is very simple, he gives us some date and we try to remember where we were that time and what were we doing on that same day!

1) When the Challenger exploded (28/Jan/1986):

I was only 7 yrs old then, so I presume around this time, if it was a weekend I was in school or at home playing or readng books!

2) When John Lennon was killed (08/Dec/1980):

I was only about 3 months and few days then, so maybe I was at my crib?! LOL

3) When Argentina won the FIFA World Cup (25/Jun/1978):

Ooopsss...too much time travel, I was born in 1979!

I love this nice to have some excuse to go back in time! If you want to play along, please click

Blushing Revelations!

Fun Monday challenge is getting tough each time...really!

Jo Beaufoix, this week's Fun Monday host gives the us the following challenge -

“I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. You know, the one you fancied from that band, or that film, or who read the news, or who won Gold at the Olympics.

Did you have their pictures on your wall or in your locker?

Did you dress like them, style or colour your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)

Photos of THEM would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better.

Also, if you have time, I’d like to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about.”

This is so freaking HARD for me! Hmmm, let me try this one though...

I love Air Supply, Scorpions, Styx, Survivors, name a few! Well, not really THEM but their MUSIC! I'm sure I was influenced by my Uncle on these...and this is the reason why I learned to play the guitar! So at 14, I could so dam play Scorpions "Still Loving You!"

My love for these bands, made me play guitar! And I can play guitar on stage anytime...I can play base...rhythm...and lead! You name it hahaha!

Then, there was Tom Cruise whom I adore and which made me boycott all movies of Nicole Kidman...LOL Then he got crazy...and well, I just had a change of heart! So I dumped him! :P

But one man, stood among the rest!

Let me present to outstanding fling...

Mr. BOND...

I mean, Pierce...Brosnan! Omg, I'm blushing!

And to reminisce some old days...when I used to play guitar every freaking day of my life...for Music Monday, I give you Scorpions' Still Loving You! I just want to remember how much passionate I was with my guitar! This is not that so easy to play yah know!!! Happy Music Monday!

And I had to practice the chords more than 1000 times before I was able to play this on stage with friends...and guess what, I was the only girl in that band! It was so freaking nice...When people drool in disbelief that is was a girl on the guitar...LOL Happy Manic Monday everyone!

Friday Random

Invent a new flower; give it a name and describe it.

It will be a flower with petals as delicate as the rose, but shaped like a wingo f a butterfly...color would be white and is available all year round...and I will call it Mariposa Blanca!

Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice.

I would say Yummy (aka IT Guy)! Then I have a long list of my favorite many to mention here!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how clean do you keep your car?

This is embarassing but I think I would give myself a 6.5! I just dumped all my stuff there thinking it is an extension of my closet.

Main Course
