Love is a many-splendored thing

It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring,
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living,
The golden crown that makes a man a king. *

....and so on and so forth.


While going down south on Freeway 5 last Sunday afternoon, I spotted this small man-made cloud in the shape of a heart. Some one out there is expressing his/her love to someone. Or perhaps proposing marriage.

Love truly is a many-splendored thing, that someone would do anything to profess his/her love to the extent of spending hundreds of dollars for a puff of cloud that would disappear in a few minutes.

A few seconds after, we took the interchange to Hollywood Freeway and I never get to see if something else was written after the heart.

Hopefully, she or he gets to see it and responded with a "yes", or a "I love you, too." That would be sweet.

I remember noong bf ko pa lang si kd, on the way to the office ay hihinto muna kami sa may highway then unahang makakakita ng mga images sa clouds.

aww, this is so romantic, mari. am a fool for this kind of thing. it must be a costly proposal.

one sunday afternoon there was this one long strip of blue clouds against the white sky. i hurriedly grabbed my camera and took some pics for it was a weird but awesome sight. when i find the time, i will post on my dusty blog lol..

ann,
Galeng ng hobby ninyong dalawa. Alam mo yung aking desktop, ngayon ko lang napansin na may hugis na...este...he he he. Pero nandiyan na di ko na aalisin...halata lang kung titignang mabuti. Sssshhhhh

nini,
Some proposals are really romantic and very costly...it costs both couple's lives. Ha ha ha

Alright, let's see your sky.

This one on my blog I have to adjust the brightness and contrast to make it come out better, then I cropped it. If you need help with yours, let me know.

Mari said...

ghee,
It's a man made cloud. Ano ba tawag duon sa pa-usok ng eroplano? Contrail yata. I bring my camera with me whenever we venture outside of our area. Minsan nga sa beach ang mga ibon duma-dive sa tubig...ay naku, nakalimutan ko naman ang camera ko. Hindi naman magandang lumabas sa cellphone camera. Sayang.

Aren't we all women romantic?

Yes, the heart shaped cloud meant so much to whoever it was meant for.

Thanks for the visit.

"Love is a many-splendored thing"

remember ko noon...yon first time met namin ni bernie, sabi ng mga friends ko, AY KURIPOT YON FRIEND MO.....paano, sila ang natanggap nila mga Gold n ay ewan...

sa akin, yon I love Milka-heart form choco. lang at saka ang liit lang ng carton pa....heeheh

after we got married already, siguro Sascha already na ang anak namin, tanong ako sa kanya, why choco lang ang bigay nya sa akin sa first meeting namin....

Sabi nya, alam ko na ang mga ugali nyo...hindi lahat ha? but mostly kono sa mga narinig nya sa atin, through sa mga friends nya na mga wifes are pinay daw....

Pero ayaw daw nya, magbigay sa akin ng ganoon, kasi gusto daw nya na Mahal ko daw cya not of materials things........heheheheh

ano ito, kuripot or practical....lol

Dennis said...

Wow, sweet naman. if I were the girl, I would have answered "Yes, I love you too my darling"...also in clouds hehehe

Mari said...

vk,
Yeah, romantic nga ano? Sa ulap pa ang pagsabi ng pagmamahal niya. Wow.

Tama si Bernie. Saka baka pag-kasal na yung nagbigay ng gold, lalabas na yung pagka-kuripot niya. O, di ba? LOL Ngayon pasyal na kayo ni Bernie kahit saan...mas magaleng, mas maligaya kayo. Yah?

Thanks for visiting.

ev,
Yeah, how romantic nga. Easy ka lang, huwag kang kikilig masyado baka mahulog sa upuan. LOL

"love really makes things possible." That's right. And "Love is blind and lovers cannot see." Naku, hindi na niya makikita yung heart duon. LOL

Thanks for the visit.

Mari said...

pepe,
Hindi ka ba nagkaroon ng withdrawal sa addiction mo sa blogging? Biro mo yang 2 linggong di ka naka-blog. Di bale, bisitahin mo yung Art Corner ko kung kelan ka may panahon. Naubus ko nga pala yung meryenda, ang tagal mo kasi.

Thanks for the visit.
