Au revoir Divalicious!

Okay this is my final template, promise! lol (as long as I don't see another one that I might like or love or want just because it's cute or girly or whatever!)
Before I say goodbye to Divalicious (I meant that old template I used, that one with pretty woman showing her bare back), I tried my best to make it “work” for me because I’m a Diva! I added and tried to enhance the features of divalicious by tweaking and adding widgets. But I wasn’t quite happy even after all the tweaks I did so I ended up ditching it because of restricted and narrow layout. However, if anyone wants that Divalicious template, download it from HERE. Then, I will share how I tweaked Divalicious. I love messing about with my websites although I am no expert. But I do lots of research on the web and try to comprehend as much as I can. Most of the time, I’d stare at all these codes (HTML, CSS, etc.) for ages, pull my hair and ask myself, “What the heck am I staring at?! Where is that “thingy” he (the author) is talking about?!”
It’s very confusing and intimidating but thanks to those who gladly share their knowledge and explain everything in layman’s term. For this new template, it’s a brand new one from www.ourblogtemplates.com that I found last night. I worked the whole night until dawn to change my template and update and redo all tweaks I did on divalicious. And finally, I'm quite happy with the result so this is it! (nah I'm kidding myself... I'll keep changing it until I get sick of this and gets lost! well I won't change the template anymore as promised)
Anyways, it’s past midnight again so I think I’ll call it a night. I will share tomorrow how I did the peek-a-boo post, recent comments, blogroll dropdown, label cloud, and changing the template’s background with your own image for those who want to tweak their own. So long Divalicious! Ciao! Au revoir! Auf wiedersehen! Paalam! Adios! nn

I am Comfortable with Who I Am

I am Confident and Secure I am practically immune to insecurity and self doubt. I'm comfortable with who I am, and if someone doesn't like me - that's not my problem. Some people think I'm too confident, but that's just their insecurities shining through. My confidence carries me through my worst moments, because I know I'll always come out fine.

Wedding at the Beach

Elijah and I were invited by Eureka to go to Jobson Cove beach at 6pm with her son, Scott (who is Elijah's best friend at school). It was a hot sunny day and we weren't busy so I accepted the invitation. This will be different experience for my son because I prefer going to the beach early in the morning to catch the morning sun. As soon as we arrived at the beach, the boys went running excitedly towards the water. Eureka and I were still gathering the towels and other beach stuff when Elijah ran back to say that we can't go to the beach. Jobson cove is almost completely concealed and enclosed by cliffs and separate from the open sea (hence, why it's one of the favourites among families with young children) so we can't see what's going on from the parking lot. At first, I thought an accident happened because from a distance I saw people standing and staring at something and there was also one uniformed Bermudian guy looking in the same direction. So I yelled to the kids to get back and I ran to check what's going on. But to my surprise there was a small group of people gathered for a very special occasion, a wedding! How sweet and romantic! The ceremony was about to finish when we reached the cove so I only managed a couple of shots of the group - without a clear shot of bride and groom. :P

The pastor. (I think)

The wedding entourage left

so it's time to build sand castle.

I'm 20% a Child!

I am 80% Grown Up, 20% Kid
Congratulations, you are definitely quite emotionally mature.
Although you have your moments of moodiness, you're usually stable and level headed.

View from a Cliff

Come see the view from Astwood Cove and Park - South Shore, off South Road. One of my favourite spots to sit down and relax is on this cliff looking down at this beach. Join me now by looking at this picture. ^.~ I took this photograph last February with d40x.

"Icing on the Cake"

My Passion is Gray
My sexual attitude is best described as apathetic. Often joking that I'm asexual, I can go months without getting any. For me, great sex does not make or break a relationship. If it happens, it's just the icing on the cake.

Bermuda End-to-End Walk

Last May, we participated in Bermuda's largest charity event, End-to-End Walk. This is held annually and this year more than 2,500 participated (locals and tourists) and raised more than $300,000. It is called end-to-end walk because the main event is literally to walk from one end of the island to another which is a little over 24 miles. For those who can't do 24-mile walk, there's middle-to-end (MTE) category which is about 15 miles. The third cateogry for walkers is the "Fun Raising Walk" which we signed up for. It was designed for families with little children which was only a 3-mile walk. I was quite surprised that my son never complained nor asked to be carried, not once! He was beaming with pride and loved the rewards and medal given to him when we reached the finish line.

The other options for the event were for: cyclists, swimmers, rowers and equestrians. Anyways, it's always fun to participate in events like this especially if it's for a charity.

Neat-freaks vs. Germophobes

As I previously mentioned (on Germophobe post) I dislike anything (or anyone) that may have germs on. However, I wasn't convinced that I am a germophobe and I was going to continue to deny it until I came across and read this article today:
Germophobia is an apprehension concerning germs however it has nothing to do with neatness and everything to do with microscopic filth. In fact, the neatest people are actually the biggest germ offenders.
I really thought germophobe and neat-freaks are the same that's why I don't proclaim myself as a germophobe. That explains my denial because I'm not a neat-freak (on the contrary, I like things organized and on schedule... isn't life full of contradictories?). Nonetheless, I'm not totally a germophobe. A clinical psychologist was quoted:
Germophobes dread the following:
  • ATMs
  • computer keyboards
  • handrails
  • library books
  • babies
I don't dread touching those except the public restrooms. And, I just generally practice a little common sense so I reduce the chance for bacterial and viral infections. As mentioned in yet another article:
There should be no abnormal concern that not following good measures will have dire ramifications.
Therefore, I will continue to lead a personal crusade against germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi by washing hands regularly and thoroughly.bbl
