Hanging [Nakasabit]

@ mirandablue
Napansin ko ang nakasabit na lantern habang naghihintay ng mapwestuhan sa isang restaurant.  Nakakainis ang maghintay lalo na kung gutom na.  Kaya inaliw ko na lamang ang aking sarili sa pagkuha ng litrato sa mga bagay na napansin ko sa paligid.

Ang nasa ibaba naman ay mga capiz lanterns na nakasabit sa mga sanga ng isang puno sa Greenbelt 5.

My contribution to Litratong Pinoy

I noticed the hanging lantern while waiting to be seated in  a restaurant.  Waiting can be annoying especially when you're hungry.  So I entertained myself by taking photos of whatever caught my attention.

Below are capiz lanterns hanging from the branches of a tree at Greenbelt 5.

1.) i'm known to be the most impatient person in the family. i manage it by deep breathing.

2.) i remember when i was waiting for our tour guide to pick us up and we waited for almost 40 mins. i resorted to jumping just to ease my mind from waiting. of course, galit na ako eh.

I find the lanterns so pretty!
That's kind of been a problem for me (I'm better or I think I am till I get in traffic (lol). Well, I've felt bad physically for some time (immune system issue) and realize it could just consume me- my thoughts (as there doesn't seem to be any remedy or quick solution? So I have to continually place it in God's him and pray- when I'm most discouraged. Anyhow, then I get peace.

I really like those lanterns and I love your last photo.

I am normally a very patient person up to a point. If there is no good reason for the wait I start to get restless.

The airlines almost always try my patience. Delayed flights are a real test.

i used to be very impatient when i was younger. patience is not hereditary, it's a skill--i learned that through the years. counting to 10, 20, or even 30 works for me. i always bring a book so i read while i wait. it keeps me distracted from the annoyance. i also learned to empathize.

somebody tested my patience recently when he reneged on his commitment after 2 weeks. i counted to 10 before i spoke. although i wasn't able to change his mind, i believe there are benefits from the incident. it gave me an opportunity to end a "toxic" business relationship.

I'd like to put some lanterns din in the living & bed rooms especially after watching Tangled.

1) If I have to wait, I tried not to think about it, and occupied my time looking around for interesting things to see or take pictures!

2) Two weeks ago I walked out of a store because the service was terrible, and the employees there seemed to be ignoring customers so I didn't want to deal with them.

napapansin ko nga pu yang mga yan sa greenbelt :)

The lanterns are interesting...
As I get older I get more impatient. I don't know if its impatient, or I just don't put up with people's inconsideration for others.It stills takes a lot before I blow.

At the BMV you wait forever. The people who work there take personal calls or talk with their co-workers about other things. Instead of work.
Very aggravating... :)

Over all I'm a fairly patient person, but I had a difficult time being patient when our children were small. I'm unclear why that was, but I often felt flustered. Others always commented on how patient I was with the kids, I didn't feel like it, though. Whenever I get really impatient then I find that I don't manage it so well and get extremely aggitated.

No, not really I can't recall a particular incident where my patiences was pushed. Although, it sure felt like a lot of times as my daughters were in their teens and living at home. Phew, am I glad that's behind me! =D

Everyday! I have to wait for my kids, or someone for something. Today, I waited for a landscaper for an hour. He never showed up! Yelp time!
People forget that they are not the only one important. Anyhow, I try to make use of my time with my Android phone, read blogs or answer emails. Time flies by when I have something to do while waiting.
