Last week, my friend invited my girl and I to her house for photoshoot. My friend is a pro photographer....I love her work. So, I brought my dslr with me too. It's kinda hard to capture this little girl's mood...hehe. Whenever my friend is not around...she'll pose what I ask her to do....when she's around...sometimes only she'll pose for her. By the time we wanted to go home only she started posing...yeah after 2 hrs we were there....hahaha. So, here are some pics that I took. Still learning the techniques, though ;).

Reminder To Parents

When you thought I wasn't looking........

By: A Child
Courtesy: Muslim Bhanji

A message every parent should read, because your children are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.

"When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a stray cat, and learned that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had nothing and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don't.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me good night and I felt loved and safe.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you and wanted to say, "Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking."

Last week on Jan 7 & 8, I felt an earthquake near my home. It happened at Calaveras fault line in Milpitas,'s about 20 miles away from my home. The magnitude 4.1 quake (1st day) & 3.8 quake (2nd day). Although it wasn't strong but I can still feel the movement inside my house. Alhamdulillah there were no damage inside or near my place.

On Tuesday, Jan 12....a major earthquake struck southern Haiti, knocking down buildings and power lines and inflicting what its ambassador to the United States called a catastrophe for the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation. The magnitude 7.0 quake -- the most powerful to hit Haiti in a century -- struck shortly before 5 p.m. and was centered about 10 miles (15 kilometers) southwest of Port-au-Prince, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
