Would you return a jewelry that your ex gave you?

Kim Kardashian's engagement ring from ex-husband Kris Humphries. A 20.5 karat  Lorraine Schwartz ring that costs $2 million. He demanded Kim to return the ring.

A generous boyfriend would give the sun and stars to his beloved if only it is possible. Close to that is giving his girlfriend a jewelry, not necessarily an engagement ring.

I know most of you have received or have given jewelry as a present to your loved one. There is nothing wrong with that for as long as it is not stolen. But, what would you do if the relationship comes to its bitter end? Would you still keep the jewelry? Or would you return it?

When Kim Kardashian decided to end her 72-day marriage with Kris Humphries, she was demanded to return the $2 million worth of engagement ring. Did she or did she not return it? I have no idea. But, according to Lizzie Post of Emily Post Etiquette, 18th Edition, he or she should return the wedding gifts if the marriage only lasted in less than six months and if the items have not been used or are not personalized. In Kim's case, the ring is hers to keep since it is a reminder of her short-lived marriage because technically, the ring symbolizes a promise to get married--which she did--so it is just rightful for her to keep it and do whatever she wants with it.

In the case of boyfriend-girlfriend relationships, if he or she demands you to return the jewelry, by all means, do so. And do it politely. If the jewelry is a family heirloom, give it back even if he or she doesn't ask you to do so, just as to show respect from the family who hoped once upon a time to have you as their member.

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.
