Thursday Thirteen - #8

Wow, it's been more than a year since my last T13 (my previous t13s are over here). I've been wondering when I'd be able to post leisurely on a Thursday so I could participate in this popular meme again. Glad am still up at 245AM this Thursday :)

For this week, let me showcase 13 pictures of my boyfriend, Alfred. This afternoon, my colleague Richard asked me why I always referred to Alfred as 'boyfriend' when I talk about him. Well, I'm not used to calling him Alfred anymore and that's how he's called at work. So if
I'm speaking with people who call him Fred or Alfred, I refer to him as boyfriend. If I'm speaking with others who refer to him as Dodong, as I do, I call him that. Simple :)

I'm doing this because I appreciate what he did for me today (oh, yesterday). Actually, he does a lot of things for me and I truly appreciate all of it. I love you sweetie! :)

--> Okay, so this is more a picture of me with my college girlfriends, but look at Dong right there on the far right looking at us? He finds us amusing. heheh. We've been together almost as long as I've been friends with these girls. I still remember how nervous he was the first time I took him to meet them. :)

--> Now this second picture is one I took with my camera phone while having lunch at Petruss, probably around Valentine season last year. That's him pretending to be impatient.

--> This is his solo shot in the picturesque Fedilisan Rice Terraces, taken in our Sagada trip last year. We were resting because I was sooo tired with the trek back up to Bangaan so we took pictures of each other. He was so patient with me that time, which he normally isn't when I slow him down. He says he was so proud of me because I conquered it all during that trip. :)

--> These next two were both taken in restaurants. On the left is the 'before' pic of our boodle feast at Seafood Island. On the right is his Gramm's Diner pic while waiting for our orders.

<-- This next one is him lounging at our company employee lounge during the Family Day last year. We brought several of my nieces and nephews and we had just finished eating and were watching an animated movie. The kids were either sprawled in bean bags or slouching on the other furniture too.

--> Now, he will kill me for posting these next two! The first one was the first/last time he had a facial. He was totally complaining about the pricking! The second one was a surprise shot at Seafood Island.

<-- He'll definitely remember this, he was so happy when he finally got his iPod! Almost a year ago now :) It takes a lot of convincing to get him to lend it to me.

The next three photos were significant - our first dog iPod's birthday 'party.'

And now for his all-time favorite picture that I took while waiting at the recruitment area of our office:

I love you sweetie! :)


The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. What do you do? Write Thirteen things about yourself, summarize your week in one entry, make it easy for other bloggers to get to know you on a weekly basis. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is not only encouraged, it is part of being a Thursday Thirteener!

Have your 13? Add your link to Mister Linky and leave me a comment so I can go check it out. :)

Edit: I think there was something wrong with my choice of Linky because it isn't posting the links? I'll change it if I can see what will work...

    The only way I get my TTs posted is by writing them ahead of time, usually over the weekend. Happy TT.

  4. Nap Warden said...

    Oh, the facial photo! iPod is pretty neat, too. Thanks for sharing (& thanks for visiting my TT)

  8. The Invisible Mo said...

    Such cute photos! I bet your boyfriend was thrilled you shared the one of him in a facial mask, haha! so cute!

    What a sweet list; welcome back! Thanks for checking out my list and let me know when you try the blue cheese: )

    He's a keeper all right, especially if he treats you well, is patient when it matters, and is willing to put up with getting a facial (exceptional for a guy). Congrats to the both of you!

  11. Bottles Barbies & Boys said...

    Tell me how & what you did to convince him to get a facial? My husband went once and only once to a tanning bed. I won't even tell you what he complained about, lets just say he stayed too long!

  12. Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

    He's a cutie! Don't forget to get photos of the two of you too!

    I'm glad you're back to TT...look forward to seeing you next week.

    I LOVE the facial.

  14. LaskiGal said...

    Sweet facial! What a guy! Such cute pics!!!

    Thanks for the comment on my AI post. I am a HUGE Ramielle fan--have been since DAY ONE. I personally think she has the best voice of all the girls (way better than Carly--the current favorite---ugh!). I just can't wait for her to WOW them. I KNOW it is coming!!!

    Looking for your profile page--I love to read the About Me!

    OMG ~ your dog is named iPod!!! I love it! :roflol:

    Great TT Vera! Nice to meet you and you're sooo cute with your boyfriend.

    What a cute boyfriend! I got a kick out of the facial pic.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  18. arlene said...

    He's one lucky guy..And im sure you are too! Loved the facial pic =)

    Happy TT!

    Another picture TT! I like the idea of using pictures, although - you went and typed explanations - I was too lazy for that.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog - The picture of them sleeping is my favorite, too. I'm actually in that picture as well, the only way I ever got to nap is if he help baby brother, and we all fell asleep! Something about holding a sleeping baby, completely knocks me out! Thanks again!
