Prince William-Kate Middleton Engagement

Photo from here.

After 8 years of dating, Prince William finally proposed to Kate Middleton.

The couple announced their engagement today--one month after Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton in Kenya.  The Prince said that before actually proposing to Kate, he asked first her father's approval.  So, what does the engagement ring look like?  It is the late Princess Diana's engagement ring with 18-karat blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds that Prince Charles gave to her in 1981.  Prince William said that the ring is very special to him, so is Kate and it is just right for her to have it.

Many would ask, "who is Kate Middleton"?

Catherine Elizabeth "Kate" Middleton was born on January 9, 1982 to Carole Goldsmith and Michael Middleton--a self-made millionaire in England. She was raised in Bucklebury, Berkshire and went to St. Andrew's School until she was 13 years old before going to a public school in Marlborough College (the school where Prince William's cousin (Princess Eugene of York).  It was in 2001, she was still in University of St. Andrews, the same school where Prince William go, when they met.  It was only in 2004 when the two were publicly seen while on vacation at Klosters.  Since then, Kate has become in the center of media speculations involving Prince William.

The couple plans to wed in 2011.

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.

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
