In my Gratitude List.

It is no secret that I love watches (not that I own or collect expensive ones). Recently, I inherited a Credor, Seiko's most luxurious line. Imagine my happiness. :)

I learned that the most expensive Credor, the Juri, costs about $550K (yes, it's in US dollars). I learned, too, that before James Bond wore Omega, he wore Seiko (Roger Moore & Sean Connery). Jason Bourne in the book Bourne Identity wore a Seiko, too.

My Credor is a Signo. It is beautiful and elegant with a lot of story in it from the previous owner. I love things that has a lot of story and history in them.

My sister Azenith and her family received their Canadian visas last week. The entire process of applying and approving was quite fast. They are leaving this weekend. The kids are scheduled for school interview at the end of the month. I am going to miss them terribly. But I am happy that their dreams are coming true.

Azenith is one of the kindest souls I know. And her kids are such amazing people. They deserve a happy, blessed life.

Now, I have reasons to include Canada in my to-go list.

The past week, I have been receiving emails from strangers asking me how I take and postprocess my pictures. And if you know me enough, you'd know I share everything. :D One photographer whose photographs are already quite amazing even asked for tips and tricks.

It makes me happy to know that there are people out there who are taking and postprocessing pictures because I taught them.

In this picture, my students D and V.

Pin It!
