Hubby's First Taste of "Balut"

Friday, June 27, 2008

Hubby had his first taste of "balut" when we had our family trip to Las Vegas in June. The first time I went with him in Las Vegas was in March of this year and we went to this Filipino Restaurant. He loves the filipino dishes and wanted to go back again the next time we go there. He told me that the next time we go to the Filipino restaurant he would try eating "balut". he finally had his first taste of 'balut", although he only ate the yellow part of the balut and not the little chick inside but still he was proud of himself that he was able to taste it. I'm proud of him too, at first I was hesitant to let him try taste it coz I was scared his tummy would hurt but it didn't bother him at all. He said it taste pretty weird though.
"Balut" is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.

White Rose Tag

Pretty White Rose Tag from Princess. Thanks a lot!

What does a white rose represent? White is a color symbolic of many positive things, such as marriage, purity, virtue, and innocence. White is linked to emotions of harmony and serenity. The breathtaking purity and simplistic beauty of a white rose can’t be beat. White roses signify deep, clear emotions. They are given without reservation or ambivalence. The red rose signifies lust or passion, but the white rose goes much deeper to suggest an infinite love that goes to the very core of one’s being. It carries an almost spiritual significance. White roses symbolize devotion, kindness, and deep friendship in love.

I'm passing this glittering white rose to Michelle, Ella, Arlene, Veniz and Envina.

A closer look at the moon

Monday, June 16, 2008

We had a good weather yesterday even though it's so warm and hot which I really liked. Hubby went outside into the front yard and invited me to spend sometime watching at the stars since the sky was so clear. The moon was visible also on the very clear dark sky. Hubby remembered to take our telescope outside so he could take a closer look of the sky. We looked at the moon through the telescope, it was so beautiful. I told hubby maybe we could take a photo using our digital camera and take a shot through the telescope and so we did and it worked. Take a look at what the moon looked liked when we took the photos.

The three photos above were taken using the telescope and the digital camera.

This photo of the moon was taken with just the digital camera.

"Flints" or Flintstone

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

As I said in my previous post that hubby took me to a place where we could find some "flints". These "flints" as what had been told to hubby were once used by the American Indians who dwelt in the rocky mountains of Colorado. They used these "flints" to make arrowheads and the once we found were just little pieces of these flints. We found these "flints" on the ground up in the hills shown in my previous post.

I put the 5 cents coin in the middle of the "flints" to give you an idea of their sizes.

Photos of the Grand Mesa

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Hubby and I took a short drive to a nearby national park. We drove highway 50 and turn right off the highway and drove through the hills. Hubby wanted me to look for "flints" which are found in this particular mountain that we had been to. He was told by someone that these "flints" were little pieces of stones that were once used to make arrowheads by Indians hundreds of years ago. before we started looking for the flints hubby took some beautiful pics of the Grand Mesa.

These three photos shown here are pics of the Grand Mesa. We were on a hill overlooking this beautiful mountain Grand Mesa.

The Grand Mesa is a large geologic formation in western Colorado in the United States. The largest mesa in the world, it has an area of about 500 square miles (1300 km²) and stretches for about 40 miles (65 km) east of Grand Junction between the Colorado River and the Gunnison River, its tributary to the south. Geologically the mesa is the result of a hard volcanic basalt layer on its top. This volcanic layer, created during the birth of the modern Rocky Mountains approximately 30 million years ago, suppressed erosion compared to the surrounding sedimentary rock layers, which suffered rapid downcutting from the Colorado and the Gunnison.
