Oh, meme!

I was tagged by the lovely Ghee back in October 2007....aaargh. I put it off due to my sleeping schedule. I gotta have my beauty nap, you know?


The tag is simple. All I need to do is answer a question that she has concocted. So here goes.

Question:

What would be the major 5 things you would do if you were told by your physician that your remaining life is only six months?

  1. I would eat all my favorite foods. It wouldn't matter anymore if I gain weight, I might as well indulge on good food.
  2. I would have a get together, the mother of all gatherings, so I can bond one last time with my family, all my relatives and friends; and make peace with ex-friends. ;-D

  3. I would travel all over, as much as I can, and the final one would be back home - the Philippines.

  4. I would pick the best dress for my final day...

  5. And lastly I would stay home surrounded by my love ones until I heave my final breath.

And as instructed my family would have another great gathering to celebrate my passing on to the afterlife.

There you go, Ghee.

Now whoever wants to do this can do so, without arm twisting from me.

simple, yes, but it takes a lot of guts to think about this and write it in a meme. i am surprised why in a span of half an hour this is the third time i read a post about one's dying day.

#2 reminds me of tuesdays with morrie :). i forgot the term that was used (living funeral yata, im not sure) but i would like that too :)

tina said...

a celebration huh? nice idea. :) death is just a transition from this life to another life anyway.

this sounds like a nice tag.. but i have so many tags-todo.

have a great weekend!

ay oo nga last week, when i read the post of Nance, iba talaga ang feelings ko.

galing sa wrks, na nervous at natakot.

kasi yon isang customer namin, bumili pa sa store ng Xmas Bag para lagyan nya ng gifts nya kasi attend daw siya ng party.
nag-usapan pa kami, that was Dec. 23, ang dami pa naming topics,

And last week when i worked, my co-workers says that She was died.....hay nabigla talaga ako,
and i asked what is the cause, kausap ko pa siya at bumili siya ng xmas bags.

Natumba lang daw sa Kubita, na-hit yon Ulo nya sa lababo or sa floor ba yon.....
yon, nadala sa ospital at na-Koma daw for 3 days, yon namatay cya...

then i read the Post of Nance, yon interment nya....

kaya yon, takot at nervous ako....lalo na coming ang OP ko....lol

Pero ngayon ok na ako, this day, tawanan ng tawanan nga, sa store hanggang dito sa bahay...

lalo na some of my friends called me up...wish sila ng MABUTI SA OP KO SA MONDAY.....

tawanan na lang kami, hindi na ako nervous or takot....

kasi kung oras na wala ng magagawa.

Be prepared na lang....
If Gods Will....

hay mataas naman itong nobela ko....i am sorry....

bye

Hello Mari, how's your weekend....? This meme is something ha-ha....! Parang last will, i wonder what will i do if ever i will be facing the same situations....? Anyways, at the moment all i can say to our big boss above is, i will get there but not yet, i still have some missions to finish ha-ha....! =D

Mari said...

sexymom,
Right. The question is simple, but it took me a while to think of the 5 things to do. There is another post re: dying on Nance's blog.

Mari said...

lady cess,
Yeah, me too, I like no. 2.

Mari said...

tina,
Tags are just going around among us, that's why I don't tag anybody anymore.

Have a great weekend, yourself.

Mari said...

nance,
All right! Meet you there. LOL


vicki,
Masaya ang maraming kaibigan. I do go out with my friends once in a while, and we too have good laughs.

Siyempre the best na sa huli.

Mari said...

nini,
Okay, you have six months to do it.

;-D

Mari said...

pepe,
It was hard for me to think of those 5 things; and if it really happens, I probably won't know what to think of doing.
