Loving/Missing Snow

We’ve got very little snow this season and we’re hoping for more. It was a usual school day, took the kids to school, went about my daily routines and picked them up again…I had to shoot and did very few but I’m glad I still did because I’m not so sure if we’re still  having snow this season. *sigh* 🙁 — for:

What Type of Photo Frame Are You?

Photo frames are obviously for framing photos, but they are also an extension of you!

So above are figurines of the world renowned composer… Read More »Souvenirs from Vienna #2 – Mozart Figurines


Having a different way of writing is never easy especially at the airports, since most of the travelers going transit or visiting that particular country use Latin/Roman alphabet. On one of our connecting flights we stopped-over at Taiwan and there were not one but many phrases or notes that we saw that made us giggle.

Rack cards

I’ve been collecting a number of souvenirs whenever I got the chance to go somewhere. Some of those souvenirs have been featured here already. Then while cleaning up our bookshelf today I saw some pamphlets and rack cards of Paris, Singapore and Prague. They were in an envelop of our plane/train tickets bought when we went to those places. I’m collecting those too so that when I get the chance… Read More »Rack cards
