bits and pieces 09.06.09

When was the last time you did something for the first time? *

Mine would have to be two weeks ago, when I finally got to try riding a ferris wheel.  Not so exciting for most people probably, but hey,  I waited 24 years for this! I dreaded doing this because I’m an eeny weeny bit afraid of heights. Ok, a lot. All possible worst-case scenarios seem to run through my mind which makes the experience all the
more terrifying.

But when one of my friends (whom I’ve been begging to visit me) finally came here and wanted to try the Flyer, I thought it was a perfect time to try something new, something different.  So, I threw all fear and caution to the wind and dragged my feet aboard.

No regrets. 🙂

* I got this question from Noringai‘s blog.

Have you heard of the PostSecret blog?

The site defines itself as an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.  You’d be amazed at the secrets being spilled.  Anonymity is such an empowering thing isn’t it?

Here’s the link in case you are interested: PostSecret

And if you are feeling generous, I’d be happy to receive a PostSecret book too. 🙂

In Amando Doronilla’s inquirer article last Friday, he talked about the Baguio centennial celebration and how unfortunate it is that there’s probably not much to celebrate.   His last few sentences summed up everyone’s sentiment. “They (people of Baguio) didn’t go out in the streets to celebrate. They didn’t find anything visible to celebrate. They went back to nostalgia.”

Sad.

And it makes me feel all the more outraged about that issue with the Baguio Convention Center Forest Park. That’s simply idiotic.
