I'm Tagged!

This is my first time to be tagged that I know of. Thanks to Jhed for thinking of me. LOL! At first I didn’t want to do tags. It seems similar to the ones I see at the bulletin board of my friendster account. It also seems so much work! LOL! Here I am whining again. Anyway, I decided to give it a shot so that you guys can get to know me a little bit more. It's a bit long, sorry! Read on!

Instructions: Name ten (10) of life's simple pleasures that you like the most, then pick ten (10) people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.


2. Writing – I got this from Jhed. I totally agree that it is a great stress reliever. Your emotions, feelings and thoughts about something can be expressed and released. Doodling is also a great way to spark creativity!

3. Popping Bubble Wrap – I don’t know if it is one of life’s simple pleasures, but it IS a simple pleasure. It’s another stress reliever and nothing but pure mindless fun. Vent all your anger on popping the bubbles! Plus, once you start, it’s kinda hard not to finish. LOL!

4. Singing – It’s a great mood accessory. So many songs for so many different moods. You see this in movies all the time. People singing their hearts out! I know you do this, in the shower maybe? LOL! My mood right now? Mellow. The song I’m listening to, Put your records on by Corrine Bailey Rae

5. Cooking and Eating - Another simple pleasure similar to Jhed’s. My ultimate stress reliever (obvious ba?). I don’t know, but when I eat something, I know what ingredients are used in that recipe even if they are not apparent when you see the dish. My Carbonara is always a critic pleaser. I also make great comfort food! Lol!

6. Breathing – This is truly one of life’s simple pleasures! If you don’t breathe, you die! So I take pleasure in the fact that for every air I inhale, I prolong my life! (palusot para may masulat! Hehe!). Added pleasure pa ang smelling. I love a lot of smells. The smell of the sea, coffee, and good food are my favorite smells. Some of the weird smells I like is the smell of state side items, the smell of a brand spanking new electronic gear, and photocopy smell. (weird noh?!)

7. Bathing – That fresh silky and cool feeling you get after a good bath or shower. Priceless! Especially after a long hard day and you feel so sticky (ugh!). May people take pleasure in bathing, but for us who don’t have the time and money, showers are the way to go.

8. Coffee – A cup of coffee always gets me through the day. It’s also proven to be good for you (as long as you only drink once a day). To have a cup of coffee is great, but to have it at Baguio (for the climate), with a good lounge chair and a few friends, Heaven…

9. Collecting Memories – What I mean by this is taking pictures, videos and documents of my life experiences. I love to take pictures most of all. Although I’m not really creative and have received no training in photography, I love just to take pictures of anything I see. The candid ones are always the best. You will see the soul of almost anything you photograph when it is candid.

10. Hugs – AWWWW! Hehe! I like hugging but I rarely give out hugs. Hugs mean so much to me. Kisses are all good, but when you hug, it just feels warmer, more accepting and more loving. You can express your love, your anxiety, your fear, your trust, your sorrow, your remorse, your joy, well, just about anything. I just feel the sincerity when I receive hugs. It’s the tightness of the embrace and the liberation from your personal restraints. Plus, I give great hugs! LOL!

There you have it, in no particular order, my ten simple pleasures in life (Parang beauty contest, LOL!)! Hope these answers are pleasing enough. When I was making this, I decided not to tag anyone anymore, but I’ve changed my mind. I have two friends I wanna know more… Even more than now…

So, I’m tagging JAMES and REX. Hahaha! Something to keep you guys busy!
