Three's a Crowd

Posted by abie on 8:42 AM in
Out of the hundreds of entries for the Photo Category in the recently concluded Colors of Subic – Biay Festival sponsored by SBMA held last April 21-22, I was very proud to say that one of Howell’s entries entitled “Three’s a Crowd” was selected to be one of the finalists.

My cousin, who is a videographer, was the one who found out of the contest. He invited my husband to join the Photo category while he will join the video category. At first my husband was reluctant to join because the pictures have to be shoot at Subic (of course, because that’s the theme of the contest), and so he doesn’t want to travel that far just to join a contest. But since my cousin was really persistent to join, he was able to convince my husband also.

So off they went to Subic last April 13 to take pictures and video, which they will use as entry to the contest. They we’re accompanied by my dad who is used to going around Subic.

They just send their entries the next day via LBC. That week, di talaga mapakali si Howell. He was always asking me if I think he can win the contest. I always tell him, that he already did his best, that the pictures that he took are just awesome (specially for a first timer to join a contest), and it really doesn’t matter if he wins the price or not because what’s really important was that he enjoyed the photo shoot.

Yesterday, he went again to Subic with my dad (who is really very proud and supportive of Howell) to join the on the spot contest. They left the house just before lunch. Around 3 PM, I received a call from Howell and he said that one of his entries was selected to be the finalist. So ok na daw sya, di na daw sya sasali sa on the spot contest. Happy na daw sya na nakuha yung isang entry nya as finalist.

8 PM pa yung announcement ng winners yesterday kaya hindi na nila naintay yung awarding. Tawagan na lang daw nya today yung mga organizers para alamin kung sino nanalo sa contest.
To Howell, Bela and I are so proud of you. You already accomplished a lot and we’re so happy for you. We love you very much.

What Kind of Intelligence Do You Have?

Found this link from Pia's blog so I tried it myself

Your Dominant Intelligence is Interpersonal Intelligence

You shine in your ability to realate to and understand others.
Good at seeing others' points of view, you get how people think and feel.
You have an uncanny ability to sense true feelings, intentions, and motivations.
A natural born leader, you are great at teaching and mediating conflict.

You would make a good counselor, salesperson, politician, or business person.


Am I a cool nanay?

Am I a cool parent? I chance upon this link in one of my former college classmate’s blog while I was checking his profile in freindster and I immediately have the urge to check if I would really be a cool parent to my daughter, ysabela.

and below is the result...

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.
You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.
While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.
You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!
