WORDFUL WEDNESDAY - chasing mum!

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/30/2010 05:58:00 PM 5 comments Links to this post


This is my first entry for the WORDFUL WEDNESDAY. I'm glad to be a part of the seven clown circus. Anyway, I took this picture awhile ago. I was at a friend's house when I saw puppies chasing their mum. It seems that they wanted more milk from mummy dog, that kept on following her wherever she goes (I prefer to use pronouns like her and they rather than using the pronoun it). They're just so cute to look at. Struggling for their own survivals. Can't help but gave them a click. =)



TO THE ONE GOD HAS DESTINED FOR ME

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/30/2010 01:35:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post

I want to share this composition that I really lived by when I was still single. When I was still on the verge of searching and hoping for my knight in the shinning armor. *sappy* A friend gave me this masterpiece, she got it from the internet. And since then, it never fails to inspire me everytime I feel so lonely. It's entitled, To The One God Has Destined For Me. From the sappy title itself, it gives so much hope for all single women who is in search for their one true love...

I HOPE THIS WILL INSPIRE ALL SINGLES OUT THERE...


* bold and italic phrases are my fave lines...

I’m wondering at this very moment if you’re thinking of me, if like me, you are also wondering what is taking us too long to find each other. Many times, I thought I finally found you only to be disillusioned by the fact that my wait has not yet ended. I get up each morning, hoping, dreaming, longing to meet you.


I am thinking of how we will meet, would it be as romantic as the ones I saw in movies? Or is it possible that I have known you all my life but yet we have to realize that we are really meant for each other? Oh how I wish you were here right now because you are the only one who has the answer to all my questions.


Sometimes I ask myself I have ever really known “love”. I do not have the answer to that question either but I believe that, more often than not, we will never really know what love is until we find the right person…and since I have not found you yet, then maybe I do not really know what love is!

You just don’t know how often I dream of finally knowing what it feels like to be in your arms. Even at this very moment I am imagining how you will simply sweep me off my feet! Perhaps your smile or your eyes would draw me to you, or maybe even how you manage to make me laugh with your own silly little ways.


I don’t really know for sure but I’m praying that God will help me recognize you when the right time comes. I think of all the pain I have gone through in the past and of how much I cried since the day I begun my search. I just wanted you to know that I’m clinging into my vision of the beautiful life ahead of me…the life I shall spend with you. In my mind and in my heart, I know you’re worth all the pain and sacrifice.


After all, the tears have become part of my life and I believe they are slowly washing away my flaws so that I would become perfect, not perfect in its truest sense, but perfect…for YOU. I wonder if you’ve gone through so many pains as well, I wonder if you’ve been hurt so many times along the journey. But my dearest one, please don’t ever give up because I’m right here…patiently waiting for you. I assure you that when we finally found each other I would slowly heal those wounds by my love.


At night, I would look out my window and stare at the beautiful sky, hoping that somehow you are also looking up and wondering about me. I utter a silent prayer and send all my cries in heavens above thinking that in time they would reach you. And when I feel impatient, I just close my eyes and believe that you are on your way and that you are longing to see me as well. It is funny but when I finally fall asleep, it is still you that I think of, for you are always in my dreams. It seems that, for now, that is the only place where I can hold on to you, long enough to tell you how much I love you. In my dreams, you would kiss away my fears and wrap me with your arms of love.

And this, all the more, makes me want to wake up and face the new day ahead with the hope that soon enough, you would no longer be a dream but a reality and once again I’m assured that you are worth the wait. And when that time comes, everything will fall into its place, just as I had imagined, just as I had though it would be. By then, I would simply look back and smile at all that I have gone through, in spite of the pain and amidst the simple joys of life…and I would be very thankful because they all lead me to you.


In the meantime, take care of yourself for me. Hold on to our dream and don’t even think of letting go. Believe in your heart that we will find each other no matter what happens. God has planned the course and it’s up to us to follow the directions. Don’t worry; don’t be afraid of getting lost, God saw to it that all roads no matter what you choose to follow, lead to me.

DON'T HOPE FOR A MIRACLE...MAKE ONE!

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/29/2010 11:29:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post




I was really close to sobbing after watching EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES! The scenes kept on sending me goosebumps because the characters portray an empathetic role that depicts a drama in real life. This is about a father John (BRENDAN FRASER) who gambled his life finding a miracle cure for his two children suffering from a POMPE DISEASE. A genetic disease involving deterioration of muscles caused by accumulation of glycogen ( it's kind of scientific but more will be learned if you will search in the net). And his children's slim chances of survival is now on the hands of the genius, rough tough professor Dr. Stonehill ( Harrisson Ford) whose brilliant ideas remains to be only theoretical and unproven. In the end, MIRACLE happens for both John and Stonehill, a miracle they made with faith.

I learned three things from the story:

1. The tagline of the movie, "DON'T HOPE FOR A MIRACLE, MAKE ONE"
2. The most important ingredient for a miracle to happen is faith. (John's faith is like level 1000).
3. Sometimes, pride will do no good. (As for Stonehill's case)


THIS MOVE IS A TWO THUMBS UP!


TCP: Matt Damon Movies

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/29/2010 06:40:00 PM 1 comments Links to this post




This is my first entry for the TUESDAY COUCH POTATOES. The theme is about MATT DAMON'S FILMS. Well, I'm not such a big fan but my boyfriend is. So every time there's a Damon film, have no choice but to endure the 2-hour yawning moments at the movie house..=)..But one film that caught my attention is THE BROTHERS GRIMM (in memory of Heath Ledger). In all fairness, the movie is nice. I must say Matt Damon deserves an applause. Cheerio!


SUMMARY OF THE FILM:

Folklore collectors and con artists, Jake and Will Grimm, travel from village to village pretending to protect townsfolk from enchanted creatures and performing exorcisms. They are put to the test, however, when they encounter a real magical curse in a haunted forest with real magical beings, requiring genuine courage.

In 1811, in a French occupied Germany, the crooks Brothers Grimm pretend to fight against evil witches and monsters to make money. However, they are arrested by Cavaldi and General Delatombe, but they have a chance to redeem themselves in the village of Marbaden, where ten young girls have vanished. Will and Jacob are guided by the local Angelika through an enchanted forest where they face the evil Mirror Queen that depends on the sacrifice of twelve girls in the eclipse to stay beautiful and young.

C2 IS LIFE --- I SO MUCH AGREE!

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/29/2010 12:00:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post

WHO WOULD NOT LOVE C2?


Most people in the office would call me the C2 girl! I just love C2. It's like my mantra! Hehehe. You can spot me with it in my hand whenever it's available in the cafeteria. I also include it in the grocery list every time. My favorite flavor is APPLE. One time, they even threw me a C2 birthday blast during my 24th birthday. Everyone gave his/ her fair share of C2 as a birthday gift. You can tell by the picture below how funny I look like.


I happen to grab this comment from the net and I like how this person's insight matches mine:

Green Tea’s centuries old reputation of containing natural anti-oxidants giving our body health benefits such as lowering of cholesterol, reduction of heart ailments, improvement of metabolic activities, flushing out our body’s impurities, and many more…However, not all people can appreciate the taste green tea, or is even fond of drinking it. I am glad Universal Robina Corporation came up with a way to make people drink green tea by making it in a non-carbonated drink called C2 cool & clean green tea drink that comes in different flavours that will suit every person’s taste. They have a variety of flavours like Black Tea Lemon, Peach, Apple, Green Tea, Lemon, Plain and even Lite. The anti-oxidant it has is called “catechins” that is said to help prevent diseases and even cancer. So, it is even healthier than soda. And since it comes in ready-to-drink bottles of different size, it is easy for you to carry around. It is the coolest and a very healthy way to refresh your body!



My brother was generous enough to take photos of these while we were in the gasoline station..=)

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE HAVE A MIND OF ITS OWN TO FOLLOW YOUR ORDERS, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?


I'd choose the REFRIGERATOR! Haha! You probably know why! This would really be of big help. Like whenever I crave for a certain food, I would just instruct Mr. Fridgy to give it to me. Haha. How I wish!...This would make it harder for me to burn the unwanted calories. Haha..=)

I'm happy to have the internet back. It's been almost two days since the internet connection got busted. Two days seem to be an eternity of boring days and unproductive moments.

PISSED..=)

Last night, I slept earlier than the usual, because I'm trying to have a normal sleeping routine. But I can't seem to put myself to sleep, my body is still adjusting and I was not that tired. It was almost 2am that I finally arrived at slumber land. Yet to my dismay, I was awakened by the irritating alarm clock of my nanay (our long time house help) who is sleeping beside me. Grr.. Thank God, it only took me a few minutes to get back to my drowsiness. Four hours after, my nanay woke me up because my grandfather was asking me to type something in the computer and have it printed, it is for his urgent appointment. Could you imagine how pissed I am?

SLEEPING BEAUTY SYNDROME

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/20/2010 10:37:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post


I always love to sleep (who doesn't). I always find time for sleep. Even a few minutes nap would do. This is my way of indulging my exasperation, my way of rest and sometimes my form of escape. But to sleep forever...NO WAY!

Sleeping is good and relaxing, although sometimes it can cause you instant headache when you're "overdose" with it. But what if one ordinary day, you woke up and realize that you've already been sleeping for 18 hours?... Now that's alarming!

I have read over the internet that there is what we call Kleine-Levin Syndrome or KLS (also known as Sleeping Beauty Syndrome). For more information, I would like to share to you a little research I made.

It is a neurological disorder characterized by recurring periods of excessive amounts of sleep and altered behavior. At the onset of an episode the patient becomes drowsy and sleeps for most of the day and night (hypersomnolence), waking only to eat or go to the bathroom. When awake, the patient’s whole demeanor is changed, often appearing “spacey” or childlike. They also experience confusion, disorientation, complete lack of energy (lethargy), and lack of emotions (apathy). Individuals are not able to attend school or work or care for themselves. Most are bedridden, tired, and uncommunicative even when awake.
Most patients report that everything seems out of focus, and that they are hypersensitive to noise and light. In some cases, food cravings (compulsive hyperphagia) are exhibited. Instances of uninhibited hypersexuality during episodes (mostly males) and instances of depression (mostly females) have also been reported. Most cases of Kleine-Levin syndrome are seen in teenage boys.[1]

Affected individuals may go for a period of weeks, months or even years without experiencing any symptoms, and then they reappear with little warning. In between episodes those diagnosed with KLS appear to be in perfect health with no evidence of behavioral or physical dysfunction.
The cause of Kleine-Levin syndrome is not known. Thus, family support and education are the best management currently available.

CAUSES
While some researchers speculate that there may be a hereditary predisposition, others believe the condition may be the result of an autoimmune disorder.[6] Both proposals need not be mutually exclusive with the result being a malfunction of the portion of the brain that helps to regulate functions such as sleep, appetite, and body temperature (hypothalamus).[7] Recent studies also suggest that there may be a link to a deficiency of dopamine transporter density in the lower striatum.

SYMPTOMS
Hypersomnia is a primary symptom of KLS, and is present in all subjects. Subjects are often treated initially for a sleeping disorder. During a KLS episode, subjects often spend 18 hours a day asleep. Another defining symptom of KLS is an altered mental state during the episode. Subjects are hard to arouse from this sleep, and are irritable or aggressive when prevented from sleeping. Subjects also frequently show cognitive impairment[12], and can show confusion, amnesia for the event, hallucinations, delusions, or experience a dream-like state. About 75% of KLS patients experience changes in eating behavior during episodes, with the majority of these exhibiting megaphagia. Reports describe patients who will eat anything placed in front of them with very little discrimination, including consumption of excessive amounts of food. Almost half of KLS patients also experience some sort of hypersexual behavior during the event, including promiscuity, excessive masturbation, inappropriate sexual advances, and other risqué, atypical behavior. Hypersexual behavior is more common in males than females, and is associated with a much longer disease course.[13] Other unusual compulsions reported during the event are also not uncommon.


SO, DO YOU STILL WANT TO SLEEP?..=)

You can't watch this video without feeling a "twitch"..Her words showed how thankful she was in their marriage and how much she loved him. Like she said, "in the end, it's these small things that you remember, the little imperfections that make them perfect for you. So to my beautiful children, I hope you too one day will find yourselves lifetime partners who are as beautifully imperfect as your father was to me"..=)

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/19/2010 11:01:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post


When I was still a kid, I used to believe that falling stars answer my wishes. I always dream of seeing one, thinking it would grant my heart's desire. Never seen any then but that didn't make me a cynic though. But finally, what seems to be a dream came true, I seen one. It was during our kiddie camp when a falling star visited. So I rush myself into making my wishes. Years after, seen one again and again, yet still finding myself wishing. And the moment I started to forget them, they start to come true. Whew.. Should this just be a legend? Or did it came true because it's already written in my destiny? Or is this a mere issue of faith - believing in your own dreams.

I would like to acknowledge what I read from somewhere:

Legend has it that wishing upon a shooting star makes the wish come true. It is believed to have originated in Europe, when Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occassionally, out of curiosity, even boredom, peer down at the earth from between the spheres, and stars sometimes slip out of this gap, becoming visible as shooting or falling stars. Since the Gods are already looking at us at such a time, they tend to be more receptive to any wishes we make!

The Greeks, however, fathomed shooting stars to be rising or falling human souls, while Jews and Christians believed them to be fallen angels or demons. Aristophanes, a Greek playwrite, had a more fancy imagination. According to him, shooting stars were “souls of poor people, drunkenly walking home after they had dinner at a rich star.”

Even contemporary culture is abound with superstitions related to shooting stars. In Chile, for instance, when you spot a shooting star, you must pick up a stone in the same moment, while making a wish. (Quick thinking, I must say.) If you’re in the Phillipines, you must tie a knot in your handkerchief instead. (Too bad if you don’t carry one around.)


WHETHER THIS IS JUST A SUPERSTITIOUS BELIEF OR ANOTHER KIDDIE FAIRYTALE, FALLING STARS REPRESENTS THE FAITH WE HOLD IN OUR DREAMS..IF WE BELIEVE..=)


WINGS OF PRAYER

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/19/2010 08:22:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
A VERY INSPIRING PIECE:

Just close your eyes and open your heart
And feel your worries and cares depart
Just yield yourself in the Father above
And let Him hold you secure in His Love

For life on earth grows more involved
With endless problems that can't be solved
But God only asks us to do our best
And He will take over the rest

So when you are tired, discourage and blue
There's always one door that is open for you
And that is the door to the house of prayer
And you'll find out, God is waiting there

For the house of prayer is no father away
Than the quiet spot where you kneel and pray
For the heart is a temple where God is there
As we place our love in His loving care

And He hears every problems and answers each one
And when we say in His name Thy Will Be Done
The problems that seem to heavy to bear
Are lifted away on the wings of prayer

love fountain in ROME?!

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/19/2010 02:44:00 PM 1 comments Links to this post
Is there really a love fountain?.

Last night, I happen to watch WHEN IN ROME. Coins and a fountain that makes a magic mess. In the movie, there's this love fountain where you have to make a wish (more of love matters), throw in a coin and your heart's desires will be granted. By the way, the fountain is called the TREVI FOUNTAIN in ROME..But when I made a little research, it says the other thing, that throwing a coin meant that you will find yourself returning to the place..

These are some of the wonderful images of the said fountain and a little research:



Trevi Fountain is the place that you can prove that you ve been in Italy and Rome ...If you dont have a picture of Trevi Fountain in Rome and if you didnt throw any money from your shoulder that means that you never been in Roma ....The Trevi fountain, is the largest and most spectacular Baroque fountain in Rome (standing 25.9 meters high and 19.8 meters wide.. was designed by Nicola Salvi in 1732 and competed in 1762. isnpired by a schetch of Bernini





Main figure of the fountain is Neptun (God of the sea), flanked by two Tritons.(sons of the god of the sea)It was also the main attraction for the famous hollywood stle movie of "Three coins in a fountain" and "Roman holiday",Frederico Fellini put the last point with "Dolce Vita" Tradition is that a coin thrown into the water guarantees a visitor's return to Rome.

it's a "fats" thing..

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/18/2010 01:01:00 AM 2 comments Links to this post
I had the biggest weight downfall back 4th year college, without me being so unaware of it (effortless, heheh), I always feel fat you know. Running down from my 117 pounds down to 102. Take note 102, let me spell that out "hundred two". So more or less, that's such a large amount of unwanted calories. Hehe. Then everyone would like ask me, were you sick? or Have you been on a diet? Someone would even compliment me. While I would just give them the serious "get-outa-here" look. I mean I wasn't convince of the fact that I did lose my weight, like I said I always feel fat. But Then I woke up on morning and said Hey, maybe I am losing weight. My clothes started to become wobbly. My pants became bigger. I even have to borrow my sister's shirts and grab one from my mom's. How come I still feel fat. But I'm seriously not anorexic. Hehe..

Anyway, to show what I'm talking about, better take a look at these pics.


(i know i look ugly. heheh)

But now, what seems to be a literal "taking the load out" becomes an excess baggage. I AM GETTING FAT!. And believe me, I hate it! I'm becoming bigger and my clothes are going smaller. Everyone started to say "Oh, you've grown big"..And it's definitely not a compliment. I get to be disappointed every time I put on my favorite shirts and find myself undeniably fat. Grr...I want to lose weight with one click of my fingers, so help me God. hehhe...

Now spot the difference from the pictures above...

45 LESSONS IN LIFE

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 6/17/2010 12:23:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
I saw this posted (power point slide) at someone's facebook wall. I grabbed (share - facebook term) one for my page. I can't help but watched this like a million times because these lessons are much applicable in life. I'm glad I found the wordings at google. This was composed and compiled by Regina Bret, as her way of celebrating her growing years. It says 45, but there are 50 of them, well anyway, here it is...




1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their
Journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God
Never blinks.
16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get
Busy dying.
17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.
18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is
Up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no
For an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.
Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years,
Will this matter?"

27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends
Will. Stay in touch.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did
Or didn't do.

35. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd
Grab ours back.
41. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
42. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
45. The best is yet to come.
46. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
47. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
48. If you don't ask, you don't get.
49. Yield.
50. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Who would forget the January 2009 flood?

We were among the unexpected flood victims. Living in an urban city and in a place which never experience any torrent, we never expected calamities like this to happen. It was a rainy Monday mid morning. I just got up. My parents were taking their late breakfast while my siblings were playing on the computer. We heard the usual clamors of our neighbors outside, didn't expect it was already it. Then my brother took a peek outside, expressing an awe about the high level of water. The next thing I knew, the water started to get inside our humble abode. Thank God, no one panicked. We carried whatever we can and brought it upstairs (we have a 2-story house), from my brothers' books down to the CPU's, computers and even our heavy rice dispenser. I never expected I can be that speedy. While carrying some stuff, the water reached to our knee level and going up to our legs. Tables, chairs, and other things were already floating in the area. Whew!..

Then I went upstairs with my sister and younger brother. We prayed for the rain to stop.Sappy as it was, we even cried together. We were all so scared of the fact that anytime from that moment, the water might consume our house. It was already 6 pm when the water started to subside. We already slept at around 3 am and we were still scared to sleep for fear that it might come back anytime. Even raindrops over our neighbors roof already gave me and my sister a paranoid feeling.

HERE ARE SOME PICS:

This was one of the funny incidents I have in my life. I was on my way to the office when my officemates called me over a taxi to join them. Unfortunately the cab driver told us that he can no longer take us to the office due to the high current of flood water on the area. He can't risk his engine. So we paid the bill and joined the stagnant crowd at Makro and waited for vehicles. But thankfully, an officemate with a motorcycle gave us a lift. And to our dismay, still we can't make it to the office. So we have to stop over and cross the street to get another ride. But as you can see, the water is a little high which will probably drench our pants. So this police officer / soldier was kind enough to carry all of us. All of them had the piggy back while I was the only one who was carried like a princess. hahaha!

the first movie that made me cry !

I'm not the type who cries over sappy movies. I usually just stay silent, teary eyed, whenever a movie hit me hard. But this one caused me sobbing eyes. Hachiko is not just about your ordinary dog-man relationship movie, it's about faith, devotion and undying love which actually happens in real life. I wonder if there are still existing Hachiko out there, either human or animal. His loyalty for his master lasted until the day it died.




Picture of Hachikō (in real life)
Breed : Akita Inu
Gender : Male
Born : November 10, 1923
near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture
Died : March 8, 1934 (aged 12)
Shibuya, Tokyo
Resting place : National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno, Tokyo.
Owner : Hidesaburō Ueno
Appearance : golden brown with cream color on upper face






Hachikō exhibited at the National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno.








In April 1934, a bronze statue in his likeness was erected at Shibuya Station and Hachikō himself was present at its unveiling. The statue was recycled for the war effort during World War II. In 1948 The Society for Recreating the Hachikō Statue commissioned Takeshi Ando, son of the original artist who had since died, to make a second statue. The new statue, which was erected in August 1948, still stands and is an extremely popular meeting spot. The station entrance near this statue is named "Hachikō-guchi", meaning "The Hachikō Exit", and is one of Shibuya Station's five exits.

While most people dream of going to Paris and witness the Eiffel Tower and so. Mine is a different dream getaway. Although I also dreamt of taking photos of me perpendicular to that of Eiffel Tower, but I’d choose GREECE over the inevitable Paris!.. Aside from its relevance to the famous Greek mythology, everything about this place seems so good. Maybe the movies Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, Mamma Mia and My Life in Ruins (all are my favorites) play a major influence why I so love to go there. These films sort of showed that Greece is a wonderful place to visit, especially for those who wanted a little space away from the urban life. People at Greece seem to live a simpler life, which makes this country more admirable.

The next thing I want to do is study about their culture and their people…and perhaps learn a little with their language..*sigh sigh*

Here is a trailer of Mamma Mia...The film captures most Greece's finest places :



I want to go at these places:

SANTORINI



CHURCH IN THE HILL TOP (AGIOANNIS)



SKOPELOS



Greece, I’ll get to you soon..=)
Αγαπώ την Ελλάδα ( I LOVE GREECE)
