wish upon a star

As I was watching the news the other night, I heard about the Geminid meteor shower. It is seen during mid -December, especially during 14th-15th. Last night Mimi, Sheila and I went outside and tried to see it for ourselves. After straining our necks for 3 minutes, I saw one. Then, another one and another one. It was really awesome, I was amazed. Too bad, I only saw 3 shooting stars. My roommate, Mimi also saw 3, but Sheila has the most sharp eyes, she saw 6! Hmmm... I'll mark my calendar for next year and try to watch again this spectacular show. Next time, my goal is to see a minimum of 5! hehe!

from wikipedia...
***The Geminids are a meteor shower caused by an object named 3200 Phaethon, which is thought to be an extinct comet. The meteors from this shower can be seen in mid-December and usually peak around 12-14 of the month. The Geminid shower is thought to be intensifying every year and recent showers have seen 120-160 meteors per hour under optimal conditions. The Geminids were first observed only 150 years ago, much more recently than other showers such as the Perseids and Leonids

Why in the world I didn't hear about this?!

Bambi emailed me last night asking for the date of Vertical Horizon's upcoming concert. I couldn't believe they're here! I found out the concert will be tomorrow. Nobody told me about this! (well, except for Bambi). I haven't heard any announcement on the radio or seen any billboards regarding the concert. Its too late, if I have found out days ago, I could have arranged my schedule. I would really watch this one.

(sigh) waaaahhhh... I missed it! Too bad!

my christmas shopping list

After a year of hard work, its time to give myself something.

1. Canon 400d camera, as stated on my previous post, this one tops my list. But I don't think I can buy this right now. Maybe in the years to come.

2. Wallet

3. Journal

- for jotting down all those thoughts,feelings and memories

4. Scrapbook materials/supplies

- making scrapbook is my past time, to relieve myself from all those stress. Currently, I am finishing my 'haunted in bangkok' scrapbook. My next project would be 'malaysia misadventures'.


5. drawing materials.
- I am not really artistically inclined, but ever since I can remember I am fascinated with colors and pens. I really like doodling and lettering.
