red velvety flower and gingers

This LOCAL red velvety flower is called cockscomb. While some really grow these plants i also see them as wildflowers and commonly growing in vacant lots. I was surprised to see some of these plants on my planter just outside my fence and i remembered that a neighbor has been growing these in her garden and i’m sure that some of the seeds were just blown by the wind. I am not protesting though as they are so gorgeous.


And… speaking of reds, my gingercats are happily modelling a red collar. (Note: red cats are also referred to as gingers, marmalade or orange cats.) This collar is TIGER’s but i let KUTING wear it too. Let’s see who wears it better.



Looks like my adorable models are having fun. Yes, mommy is having fun too because they look so handsomely cute.


my forever

I have a complicated love life. Married twice and both ended in failures.

When i got married the first time, i never thought it will end. We had so many dreams and so many plans and a lot of promises but things did not turn out the way it is supposed to be. Things happen like major disagreements, problems in finances, immaturity, incompatibility and the relationship ended.

Again, I wasn’t lucky the second time around in searching for that chance to be happy again. I thought that maybe this time it would last forever. How wrong i was.. there’s no FOREVER. The relationship collapsed because of lies, deception, cheating and empty promises. The act of cheating and lying are definitely not mistakes because they are intentional and that’s why it was so hurting. I found it really hard to move past the hurt when TRUST was broken so there was no use for me to be in that kind of relationship anymore. The more i stay in the relationship, the more it was hurting me so getting out of that is the best decision ever … i’ve  felt that URGENT need to escape so i could maintain my sanity otherwise i would really go crazy dealing with too much anger. Oh well, enough of these dramas.

Let’s kick the blues away by starting the day with a smile and be happy.


And one of my sources of happiness are… There’s Star, Tiger, Boots, Kuting, Ashton and my new foster Puti that bring so much smile and happiness. There’s Marwind, Kristina, Rafraf and Tobi that make me laugh when they are acting like goof balls. (Visit my About page to see their photos).

Among my kitties, these two are really BFFs. They groom each other, sleep together and play together. I love them forever.




sentimental value

It is fine to keep things from the past but we just have to be sure that these would not clutter our present. It is just a matter of determining which ones give us happiness and fond memories.

Holding on to a little Santa CANDLE with fondness may seem a bit strange to some but for me it is meaningful and important. It represents the number of years when i had to finally move out of my parents’ home. I clearly remembered buying this cute and lovely candle way back in 2000 when we moved into a rented house while our new home is under construction. Tiny it may seem but it has been one of the decors every Christmas season in my own home since then and it is now on its 16th year. Quite a feat for an itty bitty candle don’t you think?


Meanwhile, the kitties are getting crazy playing with a used red ribbon. Endless fun and enjoyment with a thing of no value.


Have a happy weekend everyone.


one is not enough

Star is my first cat. Growing up we always had cats but when i moved into my own home and became settled that’s the time when Star came into my life. She is from a breeder and to do my share and give a home to a rescued cat, i adopted one from the shelter. Over the years, from an ORIGINAL cat of one my indoor cat family ballooned to six… as previously mentioned one i adopted from a shelter, two are fosters including an all white deaf kitty and the rest are all rescues.




Surely, one is really never enough.

curly and luminous

During a visit to our family dentist, i took some photos of their saltwater aquarium. I remembered taking the photos during the day and i did not even turned on the flash. The resulting photos are awesome. The neon green and pink corals are shining and radiating and are glowing in WATER. I love those gleaming green curls.


And speaking of curls, here’s Boots sporting some curly whiskers. Among my other kitties, he is the only one giving me head bumps and i know it’s his own way of showing me love and affection. I just love it when he does that. So sweet.


As i am typing this, Boots is doing just that… lots of head bumps.

a photo bomber

Clouds are one of my favorite subjects when taking photos. Formations only last seconds thus no two cloud photos are alike which even make it more interesting.


Did you notice that dragon like thing at the lower end of the photo? Well it is actually a TREE and a photo bomber. Kinda creepy isn’t it?

Looks like Ashton doesn’t approve of my photo at all, hahaha!


source of happiness

I am back to my old routines now and life goes on. My family grieved because of my father’s passing but we are definitely moving on. We just have to cherish all the memories and of course create happy ones too.

One of the best entertainers for me are my kitties. Watching them really makes me smile. I guess i needed that extra dose of happiness these days.

DARING is the way to go for my kitty Kuting. He loves sitting like this. “Honey you really made me smile. Thank you.”
