KYLE VAN GOGH

I may have been remiss in updating my blog, but that is not to say I haven't been taking pictures. I think I have captured the mood in each frame better even without the commentary.

MILESTONES

We attended the thanksgiving dinner at the club tendered by my SIL, Mary, for her son John's graduation from college and employment at Lexmark. Finally, after harrowing months of anguish over the thesis project that was mostly caused by a loony thesis panelist from USC, John can now embark on more significant endeavors.

What a relief.


A-ma doesn't seem to mind Jake's weight on her lap during dinner at the club.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our little tyke, Jake, is learning to walk and his nanny has noted that chasing after him is now taking its toll on her back. Heheh... It's a cute sight seeing him wobble like a penguin and moving in circles with the nanny as his fulcrum.

Hay, I'm amazed no end at his funny antics.


Standing up and wobbling a few steps, Jake will soon give us a good exercise chasing after him.

LABOR DAY NOTES

I'm ready to take your BP now.
Er, if only I knew how to work this thing.

Dr. Jake in action...

As I looked at Jake busily tinkering the stethoscope and BP monitor in my Mom-in-law's bedroom, I couldn't help but wonder if what I was seeing was his early inclination to medical practice. Hmm...

Labor Day Notes

* President Arroyo is firm on wage hike within 30 days.
* Job fairs were held all over.
* Livelihood workshops were conducted at job fair sites
to compensate for lack of jobs.
* Employers say jobs are not lacking, the problem is most
jobseekers are not fit for the open positions.

I guess that says so much about the state of unemployment in the country, huh.

PHOTO FRIDAY: FANCY



Warm and moist nutty brownie with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with cherry, my fancy food to stave off summer heat... What's yours?

I had this a while ago at Table7 for P65 a serving... And this is my submission to today's Photo Friday challenge.

MIKADO


What I had for lunch at Mikado

Japanese lunch was had by everyone today to celebrate Jerry's nephew's graduation. Ting got the highest honors (ahem, Valedictorian, no less) for grade school and we couldn't be happier for him and my SIL, Rita.

I had decent portions of ebi tempura, beef teppanyaki, Japanese rice and chicken teriyaki. No dessert for me, thank you. How I wish this self-imposed self-denial manifests in weight loss soon.

The buffet meal was for P275 per person. It was quite reasonable actually. If only the Mikado staff noticed that one dish was already unfit for consumption.

The tofu was of bad quality and the mushroom was tart. Even the gyoza was about ready to go bad since it tasted rancid. Ew. They promptly took the dish off the buffet table, but not after Jerry called their attention about it.

Lesson learned, stick to the more familiar fare on the menu (or buffet table in this case). Better safe than sorry. And if one were to ask me if there's any way I'd go back...

I'll say I'd rather take ngohiong and puso instead....

On another note, I got this link from Memento and thought I should try to find out the readability of this photoblog...

Readability Results for http://gratitude.fotopages.com/

Readability Results Summary
Gunning Fog Index 6.96
Flesch Reading Ease 78.15
Flesch-Kincaid Grade 4.17

Gunning-Fog index - a rough measure of how many years of schooling it would take someone to understand the content. The lower the number, the more understandable the content will be to your visitors.

Flesch Reading Ease - The higher the score, the easier it is to understand the document. Authors are encouraged to aim for a score of approximately 60 to 70.

Flesch-Kincaid grade level - Like the Gunning-Fog index, it is a rough measure of how many years of schooling it would take someone to understand the content.


The results above give me more reason to stick to photoblogging. It's easier for visitors to appreciate the site since no lengthy composition or profound exposition is necessary. Each picture speaks for itself.

Hehe, okay, enough said already.
