I got my dose of exercise too from jogging and utilizing the playground equipment such as this monkey bar: Can you see my little supporter there?  So nice to have someone cheering me on when my arms are already feeling like […]

Crime Scene?

It was just another ordinary day for us today. We were strolling at a mall in town, admiring the many bonsai around as they were having a plant exhibition at the moment.  The above bonsai grabbed my attention. My mother has that plant at home but hers is planted on the ground and shaped to be a big cute ball. So I took a picture of that and sent to my Mom via Whatsapp.  I continued […]
