Upang ipaalam ang ating pasasalamat, maraming paraan ang ating ginagawa. We shake people’s hands. We send gifts. We say ‘thank you’ . May naiiyak pa nga habang nagpapasalamat kasi sobrang saya nya, di ba? May mga restaurants na namimigay ng mga trinkets sa kanilang mga clients. May malalaking kumpanya na nagbibigay ng bonus sa kanilang mga manggagawa. May mga tindahan naman na namimigay ng goodies sa kanilang mga suki. Kagaya ng litrato (recycled) sa itaas. Isang grocery na malapit sa amin at laging tinatakbuhan ko para sa supplies , ganyan ang ibinibigay taon-taon!
Pero hmmm, kung iisipin ko hindi naman talagang 100% na pasasalamat eh, kundi marketing strategy pa rin. Kasi kailangang mag-ipon ka ng 50 stickers (worth €10 of gorcery, you get a sticker) para maka-avail ka ng ‘free box’ . So 50 x €10=? LIBRE NGA BA? PASASALAMAT NGA BA?
Hay naku, basta ako, NAGPAPASALAMAT SA INYONG WALANG SAWANG PAGDALAW SA AKING ABANG BLOG. NAGPAPASALAMAT DIN AKO NG DAHIL SA LITRATONG PINOY KAHIT PAANO AY NAKAKILALA AKO NG MABABAIT NA TAO.
MANIGONG BAGONG TAON SA INYONG LAHAT!!!
My friend Girlie requested that I feature my orange cactus for this WS entry, so here it is.
Last week I bought a new one, this time in deep purple color… aint that color interesting?
Here’s where I bought my cacti, the famous Flower Market in Amsterdam
here they are, all ready to be brought home, the tiny ones (approx. diameter 5 cm) were 3-for-Euro 6,00 and the slightly bigger ones (behind) were Euro 4,75 per piece.
please if you have extra time, do visit my other entry HERE. Have a wonderful week to you all!!
Husband, our pug and I spent yesterday in Amsterdam. The city was busy with tourists, locals and the likes of us from neighboring city who jumped on the chance of visiting since we had a dry weather yesterday.
We were waiting to cross the street when I looked up and saw this tower before us. It’s called the ‘ Munt Toren’. The date 1620 caught my eyes, not the clock. I quickly took some shots before the light turns green.
” The clock belongs to the Munttoren at the base of Muntplein, close to the renowned flower market of Amsterdam.
The polygonal base of the Munttoren (mint tower) formed part of the Regulierspoort, a gate in Amsterdam’s medieval city wall. The gate was destroyed by fire in 1618, but the base survived. In the following year, Hendrick de Keyser added the clock tower, capped with a steeple and openwork orb. The carillion was designed by Francois Hemony in 1699, and rings every 15 minutes. The tower acquired its name in 1673, during the French occupation of Amsterdam, when the city mint was temporarily housed here.”

I actually have no idea for the title of this entry so I just used the first word that came to my mind. We’re deprived again by natural light (too gray and rainy outside) thus I’ve to content myself finding something to shoot from inside our home.
Happy WS everyone…and I hope you’ll all have a great week ahead!
