Which two could show a better value for friendship than Buzz and Woody? 


I recently (yesterday) made my way to Disneyland and we found this outside of the Lego store!

Student work! I love it


Snapshots in May - Irene!

How to describe my day? Well, we took a walk after lunch and found ourselves sitting in between civilization. Irene looks like she's floating on a bed of flowers.

One bridal shower later and we were in need of a pit stop refreshment drink.



Snapshots in May - May!

This is a bit late due to internet issues last night (10 min to load a page, are you serious internet lords?) But for my TGIF picture, here's May! It definitely captures the essence of the area.

Snapshots in May - flower arranging

I spent an hour and a half or so trying to de-weed/create-a-walkable-pathway in our garden this evening. Tired! But managed to come back with these so it was worth it =)

Snapshots in May

I'm sorry I am a bit late on following these photo posts. I have been through traveling, family commitments, and other priorities. But if I could choose one photo to represent my weekend: here is my favorite conclusion.


Toast face was graduating! Whoop whoop!

Snapshots in May - Lymo




I was about to leave for work on Friday morning and saw this face. Why, Lymo? Why?





I figured since I was on the road up North yesterday, I could not properly update so here's my little snapshot from today.






Yes, a bit scary but it definitely captures the moment perfectly. Eep.

Snapshots in May - Entranced

Photo Of The Day:






The moment that captured the essence of today was at lunch time.


It has been a busy week which ultimately resulted in our little trio having to take thirty minute lunches. Boo. Our lunches have been sprinkled with tired silences, frustrated sighs, and spaced out expressions.


Midway through today's meal, my compadres suddenly shrieked in excitement. I looked around to see what all the fuss was for and then realized they had found a ladybug crawling through the plants... This resulted in a lot of commotion as they scoured their pockets for their phones and then proceeded to have a moment of silence as they held their breath to take their pictures.


This is when I remember even the smallest things in life can bring great happiness.


Especially ladybugs.

Stupid strings

Oh my, first day of my photo experiment and I will be honest...I completely forgot!



I sat there and thought really hard about what significant or funny or annoying thing I had to deal with today and shazaamm! I remembered! My stupid stupid stupid (umm...stupid?) shirt strings that are utilized wonderfully in retail stores but suck to deal with while wearing.






They peek out of my clothes, tickle my shoulders, and just looks ridiculous! Grr..I shall cut you off, strings!

Snapshots in May

Ok ok, I finally thought of something simple and manageable for this month's blog challenge.


Take one picture of something from my day, every day, and capture that moment in words. Simple Pimple!



Tsk tsk on me, today is already the 7th of this month but nevertheless, let us begin now because every journey must begin somewhere and I cannot wait for the beginning of every month to start. No opportunity is too late to reach, go for it now!


Ok, since I thought of this idea so late in the day, I will just attach this picture:





A reminder to grab that camera and snap that picture!



...I suppose I could have also used my hands...

Who am I

Hola! Como estas? Feliz Cinco de Mayo!


It is now May 5th and I still have not figured out this month's theme. I suppose I will just allow this post to just be as is and talk a little about why I have embarked on this little blogging journey.



Flash back to 2009 when I sat in my living room during my summer break trying to figure out which new project to embark on. I started reading various blogs and realized, This is my new summer project!



Now flash forward and we're in 2012, I'm so glad I have this little outlet to share with my family and friends. This is a chance for me to express my inner thoughts and opinions, share funny/exasperating experiences, and try new means of blogging as well! 


My name is Ophelia, often misspelled in the most disturbing/confusing ways, and I am a person with many interests. Before this sounds like a weird drug addiction, my life has always been a need for different hobbies. First was a drawing frenzy that lasted years and years (still going but has honestly fizzled down), next was sowing, then scrapbooking and card-making, then came a few years of video making prior to YouTube, then there was YouTube and then there came Blogger.



Yippeee




I am the type of person who is quite sensitive to my surroundings, life has many lessons to learn and once I do decipher anything and I have the incredible need to share.



My previous few years of blogging have been random and when January 2012 came about I decided to follow my sister's suggestion and create monthly goals. The ultimate conclusion was of course to gain new skills, finally try to do those things on my 'Wish List', and to document my experience. 



Here we are on my fifth month of blogging and I'm already unsure of what to write about now but not to worry, where there's a will - there's a way! Stay tuned for more soon! 



For the time being, look at yet another horrible attempt at spelling my name correctly.









Ah well, life was not meant to be perfect.
