*Ang mababasa ninyo ay totoong kaganapan. Sa kasalukuyan ay tuloy pa rin ang pagsisiyasat sa krimen na ito. Ipagpaumanhin din ninyo na ibang klaseng HIBLA ang aking entry sa araw na ito, nais ko kasing i request sa inyo na ipagdasal si Milly at ang kanyang pamilya.*
Eksaktong isang linggo ang nakaraan ng tumakbo sa himpilan ng pulisya ang nanay ni Milly Boele. Ini report nya na nawawala ang kanyang 12 taong gulang na anak! Ilang oras lamang ang nakakaraan ay kausap pa nya si Milly sa telepono ng biglang sinabi ng dalagita: “de buurman voor de deur, ik moet ga” ( nasa pintuan ang kapitbahay (lalaki) ibababa ko na telepono ) Ang mga katagang ito ay binago ng polisya at imbes na kapitbahay ay ‘may lalaki sa pinto’ ang kanilang ibinahagi sa media…strategy daw ito. Reported as ‘missing’ lang ang dalagita ng unang gabing iyun. More >
Weird ba ako? Kasi naging tree hugger ako lalo na kapag nakakakita ako ng magagandang puno! Na-appreciate ko hindi lang ang ganda nila kundi pati na rin ang kahalagahan nila sa planetang ito. Minsan nga mas masarap pa kausap ang puno keysa ibang tao na mahirap umunawa. Alam nyo bang ang pinakamatandang puno ay nadiskubre sa Sweden? Sinasabing ang kanyang trunk ay mahigit-kumulang na 600 years old pero ang ugat nito ay 9,500 years old, ganuon katanda!
Pero itong puno ko, hindi ako alam kung gaano katanda. Pero ang alam ko ay isa syang magandang nilalang ng kalikasan. Napansin ko sya ng pasukin namin ang isang lugar sa Roma na puno ng ruins. Natatangi ang puno na ito na nakatayo sa parteng iyun (see 2nd photo)
Paano na kaya tayo kung walang puno sa ating paligid, ano?
Maligayang araw ng Litratong Pinoy sa inyong lahat!
I’m postimg more than 1 photo for my project 365 this time.
They’re all clickable to enlarge.
Photo on top: A cross that would greet you upon entering the ground area of the Colosseum. Would have loved to shoot it without anyone standing there though… More >

First photo was taken while I was seated just in front of the Colosseum. Coming straight from the aiport, we just dropped our luggages in the hotel and immediately walked here. I was so impressed I just wanted to sit there until it gets dark. Which we did due to my request to my husband that I also want to capture it in the evening. So while waiting…yes, I just sat there and look…and look….

and sometimes would stand up, walk around and capture parts that I didn’t want to forget..such as this 2nd shot (faulty camera setting, argh!) anyhow, can you see how they constructed the arches? geniaal!

This 3rd shot was taken while I was at the top of a double decker bus (on our second day on the way to the Vatican.) See the outer wall? Just a small piece of it was left. It’s a shame that a big part of it was broken down and that the said parts were stolen to build houses and buildings around Rome. It also seems riddled with holes, that’s because the lead metals which were connecting the arches (also supporting the building) were stolen..leaving ‘holey’ memories.
here’s a short video I made with my camera..
Welcome March! I hope you brought challenges, loads of good news and surprises with you!
New month means new (and old) photos for this photoblog. I’ll try my best not to post flowers though I still have a bunch on my files. I hope I’ll be given a chance to shoot outside as temperature is slowly rising in Holland, the sun comes out once in a while…oh how I miss the sun! Buhbye winter, I wont be missing you! But rains are also here….*sigh*
From my files, this was taken in Rome December of last year. You don’t see much of the Colosseum shot this close but I always find it interesting to shoot up- close historic and popular attractions like this or this. I was in total awe , jaw dropped, the very first time I saw this impressive Roman architecture. I’ll be sharing other shots of the colosseum, both outside and inside the coming days.
I wish you a fine week!

I was really really surprised at the quality of this mobilephone. Taken using my Nokia 5800 Xpresmusic (which I thought it was only good for playing mp3s, boy I was wrong!) While waiting for my husband to finish off his smoke I thought I’d take more photos of the colosseum. Tired of the big ones that I was carrying and using the whole day, I took out my mobilephone and snapped a few. This was one of them.
Photo was not edited at all. I only placed a watermark, that’s all.
