Scottie Pippen

While everyone was so engrossed with the royal airness of Michael Jordan at the height of the Chicago Bull's fame in the NBA arena, my eyes were all set for Scottie Pippen. He may not be the best player the Bulls team has ever had, but I was a big fan of his for reasons that I don't even know.


My fancy for the NBA materialized when I was in college. I don't even remember how it all started (the fancy , I mean) but I was hooked into it that I took note of every game schedule the Bulls had for every entire season and was willing to skip classes just to watch those games. I collected magazines, trading cards, posters and other NBA items especially those with Pippen on them.

As I have said, Pippen's playing prowess was not at all at par with Jordan's but that didn't matter to me. But I just hope you will agree with me when I say that he has contributed a handful too for the success of the team. As Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf puts it, "Not only is Scottie Pippen one of the greatest players to ever wear a Bulls uniform, but he's among the best players in history of the league to play the game. He had a tremendous impact in bringing six world championships to Chicago and there is no better way to pay tribute to him than with a permanent statue that honors his inspirational career."

I was so overjoyed upon learning this great news. Scottie Pippen is getting a well-deserved bronze statue from the Chicago Bulls, which will be permanently displayed at the United Center at some point towards the end of the 2010-2011 season. A major wow!

Frame Needed

As much as we wanted to beautify our new house at once, we were not able to do so for a couple of reasons. Aside from the short funds we have at the moment, we were also unable to find the great materials yet that we would be making use of.

One thing that we also need to have are big picture frames that will be placed on the walls. This is one way of expressing that I am proud of my family and so it is just imperative that I put our faces before the bare walls for the visitors to see, right?


One area that I would love to hang a picture frame on is our bedroom wall. As you can see on the picture above, it is still unadorned and needs a little flair. And because of that, I am tasked to browse through our photo album and look for the picture that deserves to be blown up in size and be placed in a frame.

Unfortunately, I was having a hard time choosing one and eventually have chosen 8 pictures instead! I made a little editing to merge those pictures into one and this is what I got . . .


This edited version is just waiting to be printed. But we were still contemplating on having it on photo paper or tarpaulin cloth. Oh well!

By the way, do you think this would look great on our wall?

Off To A Conference

Finally, I have received my authority to attend the 19th Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) Joint Mindanao Regional Conference. This conference will be held on August 19-21, 2010 at Cagayan de Oro City.


I am excited about this event for several reasons: (1.) our chapter will be participating in the cultural night dance contest and I am one of the dancers of the said delegation; (2.) it will be my first time to attend an event held at Grand Caprice Hotel, which is just a few walks away from CDO's famous Limketkai Mall; (3.) I will be able to update myself with current issues and trends relating to my accountancy profession, considering that one of our big bosses from our Central Office is the speaker; and (4.) I will be off to a Nokia Center and have my cellphone's camera repaired when it got corrupted few months back.

To all CPAs in Mindanao who will be attending, see you there!

The Last Song

Hubby and I watched 'The Last Song' the other night, a movie that starred Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear and Liam Hemsworth. I was not really keen with Miley but since the movie is based on a best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks, I have no doubts whatsoever that the movie would be indisputably very remarkable.

The movie is about a teenage daughter Ronnie, who got estranged with her father after the latter moved to another place since the divorce. Ronnie became all the more angry when her mother decided to let them stay with their father for the summer. Eventually, their strained relationship was mended through one thing they commonly love - - music.

The movie unfolds a story about family, first love and second chances.

For me, Nicholas Sparks has made another mark in his career through this creation. The story itself is so touching, so emotional ~ it really made me cry toward its end. This is the second Sparks story that made me cry (the first one was A Walk To Remember). Well, I haven't read the novel yet but I will definitely secure one soon.

By the way, I was thankful hubby was not able to notice the tears rolling down my eyes, otherwise I am now flooded with mockery, lol!

Bare Window

We have been around our new house for three weeks and as I was looking the area for possible beauty enhancements, I realized our windows are bare. Just take a look at a picture of our bedroom's window which I took last night . . .

Oh well! Aside from the lack of beauty of it, I wonder how visible we are inside the house with these bare windows, especially at night when outside is already dark and the lights are on inside. I find it important to put something on the windows to have our privacy as a family and to protect us in times when we do our private moments.

Some action has to be taken about this and so I called up a neighbor who is a great curtain seamstress and I was happy to know that she is ecstatic to make some pretty curtains for us. Now I am tasked to scout for some nice curtain cloths if I have the time. At the moment, my busy schedule doesn't allow me to do those things yet, and hubby was suggesting we could also opt for some blinds for our windows.

Well, this is making me confused already. Blinds are also very elegant and versatile to look at and they make perfect protection against sunlight too. Plus, there have been lots of new colors being introduced in the market that made our mouths open in awe, like the one below:


Isn't it stylish? Well for me, it is! And it would surely go along with our bare window.

Our Marriage Turned 9!

Today is August 4, 2010.

Well, you probably know the date today but I would just like to emphasize it here this important date of my life.

Today marks the 9th wedding anniversary of me and my husband. I am so overwhelmed that we have reached this stage, considering the fact that our arguments and misunderstandings were ceaseless. A lot of common friends have made negative predictions long ago but at this moment, I am proud to say that they have been wrong. We are looking forward for a celebration next year, which will be our 10th year.

The year 2001 was not yet a digital era (well, certainly here in our area), so our wedding pictures were taken using a camera film. I scanned a few of them to make a collage and thinking of sharing it here. Here it is:

To hubby, thank you for all the wonderful things you have shared with me. The joys, sorrows, thrills and anxieties that we have gone through just molded us to be strong and together. Thank you for making me the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. I love you always.
