Single and Must Love Dogs

I know that spinsters have always been associated with cats and this shirt says it all.


Personally, I am more of a "must-love-dogs" person.

I've recently read an article that says that more and more singles are getting pets "as they look to fill a sense of love and family in their lives".

In fact, this article further states that in US alone from 2006 to 2011:

  • Pet ownership among divorced, widowed and separated adults grew by 17.7 percent, from 51.3 to 60.4 percent.
  • The number of single men living alone with pets increased by 27.7 percent, from 34.3 to 43.8 percent.
  • The number of single women living alone with pets increased by 22 percent, from 46.8 to 57.1 percent.
Interesting right?

And I have also discovered websites catering to pet lovers looking for love or just waiting to be found.

And if you do not believe me, why not check these out?

http://www.youmustlovedogsdating.com boasts of being the FIRST niche website designed specifically for singles who love dogs. This site claims to have over 2 million dog lovers who are looking for someone just like them – a loving, caring human being who feels life isn’t complete without a tail wagging, furry friend. 

http://mustlovepets.com, according to their site, is the premiere pet finder destination for meeting and/or dating quality animal lovers who are single and seeking a sincere relationship with other dog lovers or cat lovers.

And one that's called http://www.datemypet.com.  I will leave you to ponder and find out whether this is really more about the pets than their owners.

I am tempted to list a lot of other sites but I know that with the right motivation and need, you can certainly search better :-)

So there's certainly a chance that it won't be a lonely and miserable existence alone with our pets.  Sometimes, they can even lead us to love.  Goodluck!

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"


The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.


Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

My Bestfriend's Wedding

I hate weddings because it’s one of those times that I am reminded of my solitary existence. See related post here.
Which is why I do not understand fate’s insistence that I become a bridesmaid four times over and maid of honor this time around.

This time was a friend’s wedding.A much deserved celebration fora couple who has gone through so much.

I was made to give a speech as a Maid of Honor and I guess in my haze and hunger, I talked about friendship, made some jokes and such.I know I talk a lot but my thoughts are clearer and much more meaningful when written, so I’d like to put a much more meaningful message here:

Dear Cha,

I wanted to find out when we became friends so I searched thru my email to find some clue. I learned that you first emailed me July 2007.About the practicum arrangements which was a requirement for our Master’s.  This started a series of long conversations - on love, life and laughing moments.

How time has flown.Back then, we were so eager to learn, to go back to sch…

The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof

I remember writing about this same topic  in December of 2011.  And now, around Christmas time, when everybody else was so preoccupied with wish lists and Christmas carols, thousands of our brothers and sisters has suffered from the recent typhooon...again.

But if there is one thing admirable about the Filipino people, it is our resiliency.Our capacity to take what is given to us with smiles on our faces and hopes in our minds. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can keep us down.
And we have this uncanny way of turning even the worst disasters into moments of fun and creativity.

Like these:

At this time, the Ayala Museum has called out to fellow Filipinos out there to churn out their creative juices and submit entries relating to the phrase:  The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof And here are some of the examples:
