50 Questions Challenge, Day 8: What is one quality about your parent(s) that you really do not like?

Hmnn...  I am only on day 8 but I am now faced with a difficult question.

I did not grow up with any of them, mom worked in another country while dad worked as a professor in his town.  I grew up in my great grandmother's household so I am having a hard time thinking of what answer to give for today's question.  Can I say, PASS!?

No?

Ok... I am thinking.

Oh!  Here it is.  

We don't call each other as often as other parents and daughters would call.   I talk to my mom on the phone once a month but we email each other more often... exchanging chain mails and once in a blue moon how are yous and hellos.  We are updated of each others' lives because she calls my older sister more often.  It is not that I am really demanding more call time from her but you know how sometimes a person thinks one is favored than the other.  Haha!  I am jealous.  Not really.  I am to blame, too, because I don't call her.  And I promise to call her at least twice a month from now on.  I miss her, especially her laugh.  My dad, though, is a different story.  Maybe it's because of the separation why we really did not bother to call each other.  It is not that I am angry at him about not trying to communicate with me... communication between us was just not established.  When  he comes home to the Philippines, he would tell us to go to his place and that's the only chance for us to catch up.  When he returns to the US, we're both dead beats.  I promise, too, to send him message once in a while.

So, there.  As clear as the blue sky, we're poor when it comes to communication.  We're too busy minding our own lives that we sometimes forget to reach out.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
********************
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Oyster Forest Life Resort

I have discovered another place where you can relax and enjoy the long weekend this October... Oyster Forest Life Resort along Sta. Rosa Road, Brgy. Langka, Silang, Cavite. If you are travelling from Tagaytay City, turn left when you see Tagaytay Econo Hotel. It is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the intersection. The resort is actually owned by Oyster Plaza Hotel in Paranaque.
The resort's theme is very Filipino. Bamboo cottages surround the pool area so you feel like you are just lounging in your own backyard without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and stressful workload. They have a restaurant so you don't have to worry where to buy food when you get hungry. They also have a free WiFi connection so that you can update your Facebook or Twitter accounts for your friends to see how good of a time you are having.

Movie Review: Kita Kita (I See You)

They say "Love is blind", while others say "the lovers are". Whichever you believe in, one thing is for sure, love comes in the most unexpected way. Kita Kita (I See You) is not the typical romantic comedy film you see regularly in theaters. Lea (Alessandra de Rossi) and Tonyo (Empoy Marquez) are the main characters of the movie--they are the most unconventional pair but I was surprised by their chemistry. Their acting was so unbelievable that they made me believe everything is real. 
I laughed and cried. It made me think. It made me see what the eyes can't.
