A Rain of Tags and Awards

Have You Ever?

Ria tagged me with this fun meme. It lets you get to know the person who tagged you more, and you get to share something about yourself as well.

1. Have you ever been on TV?
Yes, I believe so. I was a student activist in college and participated in a lot of rallies that were covered on the evening news. I don't believe I'm telegenic, though. ^^

2. Have you ever sung in public?
A couple of times, during parties and videoke stints. Guts! Guts! :P

3. Have you ever dyed your hair blond?
Nah. I wouldn't dare in this lifetime. Lol

4. Have you ever eaten frogs' legs?
Yes, when I was still a kid. Interesting, because it tastes like chicken meat. ( I can almost hear Chestene saying "Ewwwww! Gross!")

5. Have you ever received a present that you really hated?
No. I love receiving all kinds of gifts. For me, it's always the thought that counts.

6. Have you ever walked into a lamp post? Not yet!

7. Have you ever cooked a meal by yourself for more than 15 people?
Whenever I cook, the dish usually feeds around that much. Except when they get a second serving, which usually happens. ;P

8. Have you ever fallen or stumbled in front of others?
I can't remember, but maybe when I was still a kid.

9. Have you ever done volunteer work?
When I was in college, I taught orphans and abused children under the care of the Tertiary Capuchin Sisters.

I'd like to know more about you Hailey, Nedekcir and Sheila. :)

The Gift of Friendship

That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship’s flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.
And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship’s flower will bloom for you.
