I will tract the gas prices this week. If it goes up, I guess it's high time to push the Republican Slogan.... "Drill Baby Drill".

The photos on the wall were pictures of the old students in black and white prints. It is not scary though because all the areas were well-lighted. Part of the charm of this restaurant was the old antiques, including chandeliers, brass headboards, and footboards at bench backs for booths.
The picture below was their flag decor showing flags of the different countries of the world. They even have the Philippine flag though, the color blue was nowhere to be found instead, the flag was showing a green, red and white colors.
Here is the coolest part, the prominent decor feature is a streetcar in the middle of the restaurant with seating inside. I love every corner that they have.Since this is a school before, one room has the chalkboard and the restaurant was so cozy.
Oh I love the place and the historic charm that comes with it! Check it out in your place.

Last year is blogging hibernation for me. I have been working full time and all the paid post offers were left expired. It was hard to keep up especially working on a graveyard shift. I swear, it was not easy! Having the opportunity of watching the beautiful sunrise as I go out from my workplace, was a great consolation. Sunrise reminds me of a new day... a new hope! For me, working in the casino was exciting... at first. It prompted me to quit working because of an incident happen. A lady co-worker (PUTI PO) was jealous because her boyfriend was attracted to someone else. That someone else is ME. YULK! They both have problems, they are OLD and ODD too. Anyway, I brought the matter to the management. There was no confrontation but, I feel suffocated! Then, I quit! I gave my resignation letter with a reasonable excuse that we will move back to Orlando.
These pictures were taken in Hollywood at Guinness World Records building. I think this is Robert Wadlow, the statue of the tallest man in medical history 8.11 ft.
I really did have a good time! I was able to talk Bisaya dialect for the whole time I was with my Filipino friends. Man! It was so good to speak my language!

I love to take pictures and if you are my follower for so long now, you will noticed that I always posted pictures like these.
Of course, though this place is calm and beautiful, it has its share of destruction. My father-in-law lost his property and everything in it. Memorabilia of family as my husband and his siblings grow up. Most of it vanished to the vast blue sea.
But those who were born and lived their life here doesn't want to give up! Amidst the devastation of Katrina, the people manage to build back the community they love. A new park,a new fishing pier, a new bridge and a new life.Most of the families that I knew lost material things and that can be accumulated as the years goes on by. For those who lost a love one during Katrina, it is not easy! They can only embrace life and continue to live until it's time for them to meet again in heaven.
One of our rare performances in the XU Little Theatre. We all agreed that our attires were odd but, we could only laugh about it. It is funny to recall and such a nostalgic moment! I just want to share so you will know about my fun College life.

The server asked me if spicy food is okay with me because Scampi Pasta is a bit hot! Oh Yeah!

Friends are friends! And for me, they are all special. Lito is a friend that lightens my day whenever I saw his wall post in FB. People these days communicate in real time through social media sites, right? Bonding is still there for everyone, right? Keep your friendship and keep it forever!

I've always had a fascination for animals. They can be so beautiful and horrifying at the same time. I can't quite imagine what it would be like if I were to ever meet something like a Rhino or a Giraffe. They are larger than I think I could ever imagine.
My favorite way to visit these far away animals is to do so through my satellite tv. I get tons and tons of channels that let me view animals in just about anyway I want. My personal favorite animal show is Animal Cops, which can be viewed on the Animal Planet channel. Animals cops isn't about animals who are cops. Rather, it's about cops who protect animals from abusive owners.
For example, one of my favorite episodes involved an old lady who hoarded cats. She had over 30 cats in a single story small home. They were feral and were not living in safe conditions. The animal cops came in and took the cats to a safe home with the permission of the lady. She wasn't doing anything illegal per se, but the animal cops care about their animals and wanted to help. There are also stories of bad people who have abused their pets and the animal cops take legal action against them. It's always a great feeling when a bad person gets sent to jail for abusing their animals.

I love the place basically because I have Pinoy companion and we are having a good time. We decided to go to Citywalk and just enjoy the place and we end up having dinner in an Italian Restaurant.The place is gorgeous and I love the boutiques, the stores and all the restaurants around. At night time, they have a free entertainment right here on this place (above). The weather at that time is chilly so, we decided to go indoor and have our dinner. I have only a day to wander this place that is why, I still want to go back! If God permits, I would love to visit CityWalk again.
