HS Graduation Gift

Graduation is one of the most exciting and awaited events of a student.  For a High School student, it’s a surreal and momentous feeling because not only it’s the time when his hard work during the secondary years are acknowledged but more so, it’s an important milestone in his schooling life.  It is the passage into a higher level of education which is college.  For the parents, seeing their kids graduate from high school make them so proud and relieved.  To reward the hard labor of their kids, a high school graduation gift will surely be appreciated and be thanked for.  The options are various: from luxurious gadgets, travel, laptops and computers, cameras, jewelries to simple tokens such as special food treat, a book, bag, etc.  It doesn’t matter really how expensive or how big or small the item is, the fact that you’re tapping their back for a job well done and acknowledging the hard work toiled is already a big and symbolic gift.

Me: The Surprise Giver

Paul is not the type who would come up and stage surprises…which is just okay for me because basically, I’m the one who loves giving surprises especially during our “going steady” younger years.  I’d rather be the giver, than the receiver.  It gives me a different high whenever I see the delight and surprise in his eyes.  For several Valentines, I’ve had flowers (in every color except pink roses), teddies and chocolates delivered in his office.  I’m the happiest when he buzzes me and thank me profusely for the surprise he has just received.  There were rare instances when the husband attempted to stage surprises for me but he never succeeded…why? Because he’s not good in keeping his own secret.  He always spoils his own plan and being the inquisitive and nosy me, I always discover his gimmick ahead even before he can stage it.

Chuzzle Addiction


Chuzzle may have been existing for so long (as a PC game and on other ordis platform) but it’s only now that I got addicted to this game..not on the PC though but on my iPhone.  This has been my instant boredom buster and my companion while waiting for sleep to visit me at night.  This game is really addicting and I like best the Speed (Expert) Mode where I have to slide, prod and nudge chuzzles under a limited time.  Every time I play, I’ve been competing with myself as I aim to beat the high scores I’ve set.

This is a PopCap game and is available for purchase at the Itunes store for just $2.99.
