Share Your World – 2013 Week 28

Here are my answers to Share Your World – Week 28.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

– One of my friends said I could be both Bashful and Dopey. Bashful because I, myself, am bashful and sweet. Dopey because, just like Dopey who doesn’t speak, I am a quiet person and has my own way of showing my happiness. I therefore conclude, Dopey describes me best, plus he wears my favorite color – Green. 😉

– If there would be an 8th dwarf, it would be Lazy. 😀


Would you travel into outer space?

– I would love to but I’d be afraid.

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture?  Please describe.

– If I were a tree, I would want to become a book, and I’d want to be a novel. A good novel that those who read it will recommend me to their friends, family, office mates, etc. A good novel, a good book that one would want to read all over again, from cover to cover.

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

– I have answered this same question in last year’s Share Your World Week 32. Last year, I chose the wild, turbulent life. Surprisingly, in a year’s span, I changed my mind. I now would prefer the latter – a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood. I chose the latter maybe because I am now feeling tired of what’s currently happening in my life. It’s been a turbulent life this past half-year. I’m thinking that maybe, if my life is predictable, at least I would know what and when things will happen. I’d have less sad surprises, only happy ones.

That’s it. I’m sorry for being sad…


Share Your World – 2013 Week 27

Here are the questions and my answers for Share Your World Week 27

Describe yourself in a word or words that starts with the first letter of your name.

– One of my friends answered this for me, and said I am ‘Joyful’. I asked her why does she think I am joyful, and she replied “tawa ka kaya ng tawa” (because you always laugh). I admit, I love to laugh. When I am with friends and even with officemates, I will usually be seen and heard laughing, and when I laugh, I laugh so hard (no matter how corny the jokes are) as if it’s the last day I’ll be allowed to laugh. I can even remember that one day during our weekly team meeting, when one of our teammates said something that really made me burst out laughing, the rest of the team started laughing, too not because of what our teammate said, but because of my laughter.

Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?

– I am a wide reader. I read anything that interests me – from coffee table books, photo books, documentaries, non-fiction, to self-help books as well. 🙂

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

– Maybe only a few..?

If you had only one book you could write what would it be about? Assume it is a top 10 seller of any genre.

– Hmm.. one of my friends actually suggested that I compile all the blog posts I have here in my blog site My Thotful Spot.

the butterfly

the butterfly

Last Thursday (8/15), as I was leaving home for work, something on the ground caught my attention – a butterfly. At first, I only thought it was injured. I picked it up and learned that it is already dead, and had lost its body. I just find it amazing that despite of losing its body, the wings were still together. This made me realize something about.. Life.

In Life, no one is perfect. It is a fact. We cannot have everything at once. Physical beauty may matter in today’s world, but not in the after-world. When we die, all physical beauties will no longer matter. We cannot bring our wealth, flawless skin to the next life. As we grow old, our skin sags. When we die, we rot. Wealth and beauty will just be left behind.

Just like this butterfly, what matters is what we leave behind. Family and friends may forget how we look like years after we die, but the good and beautiful things that we do in our lifetime shall live and be remembered forever.

In this butterfly’s case, the beauty it has left.. was its wings. 😉

Share Your World – 2013 Week 26

Long time, no post! It’s been months (almost a year) since I last posted an entry for Share Your World. I didn’t know it is still running for 2013 until I feel like I am missing Cee and thought of visiting her blog Cee’s Photography.

Since I now knew that there’s Share Your World 2013, I will now once again try to post weekly of answers to her Share Your World questions. *keeping fingers crossed*

Here are this Week’s 4 questions:

Are you left or right handed?
– I am a righty. I used to envy people who can write with their left hand that I practised writing with it and pretend I am left-handed. Now, my left-handwriting penmanship may not be as good as my right hand, at least I can write a little bit with it.

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?
– Yes. I do this when I have to call someone from a Help Desk center about an issue  that I have to think and remember everything about my problem first, so as not to stutter when I am already on the phone line.

Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter?
– Smooth Peanut butter. 🙂

How many rings before you answer the phone?
– It is rude, but I admit that I don’t answer the home phone no matter how many times it rings. I’m sorry. 😦 Well, unless there are really no one who can pick it up. I don’t know but I just hate ringing home phones (or landlines). Maybe because I still haven’t moved on with the Japanese horror movie “The Ring”. (Yes, laugh all you want) or any scary stories about answering the phone. Maybe I’m just scared of it. I really don’t know. I’m sorry.
