Tower Cranes on Site

October20

Visiting construction sites to all parts of the city. While undergoing construction to these areas, I took few choice snapshots of the tower cranes, the load capacity is too heavy as shown. Towards the higher clouds background, you’ll view all different formation of clouds in the atmosphere; cirrus, cumulus, altostratus, stratus, cirrocumulus, nimbus to name a few..

There is Always Tomorrow but Things You Can do for Today,Don’t leave it for Tomorrow

October4

There is always tomorrow but things you can do for today must not be postponed for tomorrow because tomorrow is another day. For everyone seemed delaying things they can do for today, thinking tomorrow is always there. Of course, if you wake up is always another day and tomorrow comes next..

Saying tomorrow is a concept to delay things as tomorrow becomes an excuse to delay things. All task must be done right away after planning it.There must never been a disturbance to be interrupted because time is an essence. What you can do for today must be accomplished immediately, just do it now because time is running short .

For me, doing things for tomorrow is not an acceptable reason and consistently yours to finish right away, no obvious reason!

How to Interpret your Dreams;Meaning and Symbols

September26

I came across a book  aboutHow to interpret your dreams”, it was just a small magazine, a  ”Readers Digest” ( old version ) copyright 1979. I don’t know what lies beyond to those who will believe it 0r not? I just wanted to know more about the creative side of intellect by the authors; psychologist and the students. I’ve found the  content more interesting especially to those dreamers and believers.  Absolutely. an interesting matter to inform the meaning of your dreams with symbolic structures.

Here’s sharing part of the contents about the meaning and symbols of your dreams

Lets make a quick review about the good and bad symbols, some thoughts and meaning of dreams attempting to convey to you. To mention here also the good signals as well, If these particular symbols appear in dreams

 Bad Symbol

Amputation– a warning signal, loss of freedom

Bomb, Explosions– regarded as warning signal indicating events causing shock

Bridge-if the construction not complete- it indicates possible dangers to the dreamer

Butterfly– going astray

Ants,Spiders,Cockroaches– if appeared in larger numbers, its a danger signal in highest order

Stove, Hearth– warning signal as death in the family

Horse– messenger of death

Red-haired people– are considered dangerous

Doctor– Physical illness

Destructive fire– warning signal of dreamers sexual problems

Mirror– warning signal of dreamer’s true face

Frog– warning signal as fertile

Burial-painful experience

Rat– warning of serious physical illness

Raven,crow– unhappy nature

Vulture– lost in the world of your own

River– obstacles arising from state of awareness

Mask– inferiority complex

Knife-strong aggressive energy- the need to become aware of problems

Corpse– danger signal in the highest order

Devil– suppressed religious problems

Witch– threatening and destructive aspects of womanhood

Good Symbol

Bread,Salt– Expression of happy social life

Dove– symbol of peace

Morning,dawn,sunrise– indications that a new situation is about to begin

Coat– symbol of protection

 Airplane, flying– desire for independence

Lion– Symbol of sovereignty

Meadow– new growth and productive activity

Gold– symbol of immortality

Evening– signify twilight years

Motorcycle– symbol of energy

Water– psychic energy, water of life

Giant– powerful father figure- intellect can find correct solution

Birth– beginning of something new

To the numbers, modern science expresses all aspects in mathematical formulas, study of dreams shown psychic functions and numerical relationships. In dreams, two-number of union and the couple as three is an old magic- number as we sometimes repeatedly knock on wood or on table to refrain from or to avert disaster. Seven is dynamic number, a rainbow has seven colors and 7 days of the week and lunar cycle is 28 days or 4 x 7. Eight is octagonal forms and have a positive significance sometimes have a warning signal. Eleven is a new series of progress and Thirteen, a similar significance. ok! That’s all folks!

Dream Interpretation

December8

IMG_6738 copy

The dream images comes to picture. This is exactly how the bee looks like in my dreams…

Dreaming is somewhat a part of sleeping and it’s extremely common.It can’t be true and no one believe it because it seems quiet opposite. A bad dream comes to me when situation is restless and sick. Usually, I don’t remember my dreams night after, what i see in my dreams; the images,forms and activities may seem meaningless and useless.

One memorable night,I dreamed of honeybees flying around. I’m conscious to remember day after when i woke up. I realized i had been dreaming of bees the whole night. I can simply emphasized having dreamed more often to the same kind. This time, it can’t be regarded.Is it a positive sign or negative? What’s that symbolic content it represents?

I’ve  found an old book on ”How to Interpret your dreams, it’s an old version of Reader’s Digest that was given free after a year of subscription. 30 years after it was still safely intact with no missing pages. It was already considered as vintage. According to the book, when honeybees occurs, it’s a positive sign because they gather honey. I just love the interpretation, Is this a modern scientific thought?

Probably the positive significance means I will gather more blessings!That’s a wow thing! What if it will really comes to life?I can now go for fortune hunting because my luck is coming… If finally proven, I will tell you soon and will share it!

To receive a message that comes in a form of a dream. If this is the assigned target given by my dreams, the meaning and the purpose of seeing the past and future. Is it meaningless or helpful? After all it was just a dream, an altered sleep…

ABOUT THE AVATAR MOUNTAIN

September18

I read in a newspaper about the Avatar mountain and had been renamed as ”Avatar Hallelujah Mountain” It’s real and Awesome! What a beautiful landform! I was having a great time viewing all the scenic photos of the towering high mountains which is pointed and sharp in forms.The Avatar Hallelujah mountain located in Zhangjiajie city in Northern  province of Hunan, If you remember the movie”Avatar” it was filmed there.The presence of pointed mountains and huge trees with hanging rocks was really tailored for the said film, it was really a virgin birds forest that serves to be the nesting ground for  dragons. What a perfect setting! Lots of stories circulating around and interesting.

Going there, it’s quite a long journey, it takes about 8 hours according to the travelers who had seen that place.I’m having a new plan here,when giving a chance soon, I’ll visit the incredible mountain.

RAINDROPS

July15

It’s a transition from dry to rainy season.Summer ends and rainy season starts. There’s a great change in temperature from day to night.It’s hot in the morning although the afternoon brings slow showers to make surroundings bit cool. In our area, the skies are clear but when night comes, we experienced occasional rains and thunderstorms. I really hate the flash of lightning and growling thunder, the rain coming down so hard.I could barely keep my eyes open and stand up to close the side window. Disturbing huh!

There’s also a sudden change of schedule,I missed my summer activities. Outdoor  photography is more limited nowadays because dark clouds are forming early in the afternoon but I can go on activities in the morning and stop in the afternoon. Sometimes, if you experienced too much rain and ground is messy wet and slippery,  you’ll miss summertime,the warmth from the sun makes surprisingly comfortable when it comes to outdoor activities.

Just as summer is the best time to do all outdoor photography.I would also be missing the sunset snaps too. Earlier,I stored more photos to my folder, all those interesting snaps taken last summer such as; Sunset, beautiful landscape and wildlife. wildlife is tough to handle because of the bug bites and few blisters, it’s alright! I think it is already sufficient to ensure continuous posting for a month.I need not to worry about my blog photos anymore.

KOREA WINTER WONDERLAND

December12

Revealing the beauty of Korea

165076_167036853337596_1786935_n copy

Mount Halla, Jeju Island North Korea The panoramic view of the mountains is spectacular.Plenty of snow and the ice is so thick, snowflakes piled up everywhere covering the entire landscape. (Click on images to view larger)

Korea, a mountainous land of diverse geology. As you can see the full view, mountains are found throughout the peninsula. Southwestern coast is a maze of islands and peninsulas, it has a level plains and favored by winter and volcanic in origin but, Korea has no active volcano, this is good news for the people and rarely experience earthquake. Koreans has been marked by the influence of China and Japan maybe distantly related to Japanese, to some features they are alike. My Korean friend looks like Japanese too.

In the past, mountains are worn away by wind and water until they become a beautiful rolling hills landscape. Other areas has level plains, there was a news about the high mountain appears to have occurred during the Jurassic Ohh! that was the age of dinosaurs. 

Korea has 4 seasons such as; spring from March- May, summer from June-August, autumn from September- November and winter from December to January. The coldest is January. During this time, Korea is in full snow, it is very cold,  it can drop up to -27 to 0 Celsius.

I have learned a lot from this legendary place. I feel inspired to write as applying what I have learned in the past. I’m a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service perhaps, most topics learned about history of places and people during my college days. Somehow,this is a good opportunity for me to familiarize myself with types of people sharing their journey and exchanging each others views on how the world has changed. Sometimes, even if we belong to the same species people living in different parts of the world has their own features and different views too. I’m now sharing not only the beautiful winter landscape photos but the good news and progress of the said place from the past to the present.

The beauty of snowy mountains with young and old, families and children around enjoying winter activities. It firmly shows a way on how to take a break during winter time. Certainly, it brought people around no matter if you are local or tourists, it is simply a bonding and gathering of togetherness regardless of wealth, race or class.

Experience mountaineers carrying items of equipment required, they loved to climb Mount Halla during winter time. If others can do it during summer generally winter is more exciting! I’m sure they do it with the aid of guides too.

Ice Fishing You can see some ice fishermen out here, they all have their own chair. This is entirely different from the standard Lake fishing with switch rod.

This one is interesting isn’t it? the ice fishing in a small hole using a sled bracket with a bait. This is my first time to see ice fishing, the ice opening is too small? How can you catch a big fish here? Just curious.There are some fishing accessories and equipment  like; bait bucket, Auger bracket, Clam point, Runner kit,console and may more to mention a few but, this is the easiest using just a single bracket.
