Winnie the Pooh and Friends

My all time favorite Disney character ever since I was a little girl is Pooh Bear. He may not be the smartest bear in town but there’s just something about him that puts me in such a good mood. Not only is he cute (and yellow!), Pooh is like one of those characters that, for me when I was a little girl, you could talk to about anything (I did that. I talked to my stuffed toys before. mehehe)

Without further ado, I introduce you to Pooh Bear and his friends.

Pooh Bear is always very curios and very hungry! He enjoys honey eating, honey finding, thinking of ways to get more honey, etc. He lives in a tree in the Hundred Acre Woods along with some of his friends. Pooh is not the brightest of the bunch, but he has a big heart.  He asks a lot of questions and sometimes says things that make you go, ‘Huh. Silly ol’ bear is right’.

 

 

 

Piglet is very timid and is nervous 90% of the time. However, I like that he takes risks and even though he’s scared to death, he will do anything to help his friends or to prove that he isn’t just some shy, fragile character. He usually helps Pooh find ways to get more honey. He likes balloons a lot and doesn’t like being alone.

 

 

 

 

Tigger is always hyper, and when you see him not bouncing on you or around you, you know that something is wrong. I like his optimism, enthusiasm and his carefree-ness. He is the epitome of #YOLO because sometimes he doesn’t think. He just does things for fun. It may bite him in the ass, but at the end of the day, its one of those things that you’ll look back to and not regret doing it. There is no one like him; he’s ‘the only one’!

 

 

 

Eeyore is the world’s most popular pessimist. He doesn’t do very much. He likes sleeping a lot. He gives his two cents about things – but its the kind of opinion that puts you and even sadder mood. However, he likes being around his friends, and even if he is a sad donkey, his friends love him just the way he is.

 

 

 

Now, I did not like Rabbit at all when I was a kid. He was mean to Pooh and the others. He didn’t want them destroying his garden. I think that he thinks that he’s better than everyone else. He isn’t very social like the others. However, he does put his pride aside and helps the others too. He teaches them things, whether it be right or wrong.

 

 

 

 

Kanga is the sweetest mom Roo could ask for! She is always looking out for son (and sometimes, the other characters too). She is soft-spoken and ready to a kind word of advice or a warm pouch to hop in! Roo is the youngest in the Hundred Acre Woods. Since he very young, he is innocent and very curious. He likes to go on adventures and play with his friends.

 

 

Owl likes to think that he is the smartest creature in the Hundred Acre Woods, and lucky for him, the others think so too. He may not be always right, but everyone trusts him. He takes his role as a philosopher very seriously!

 

 

 

 

I fell in love with Heffalump immediately. He is young like Roo. Thus, he is very playful and curious as well. He is such a cute little fellow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last but not the least, we have Christopher Robin. His imagination is beyond anyone else’s. I like that he created such a nice place with characters with different personalities. There is something calming, when you’re a kid, about the fact that you get to play with your stuffed toys because the possibilities are infinite.

 

 

The gang from the Hundred Acre Woods is my childhood. They’ve always been there to cheer me up whenever I felt really sad or when I’m feeling stressed. I like that I have these guys to go back to and remind me of the simpler days. haha.

CANCER UPDATE

(To whoever is reading this, I don’t have cancer. Its my uncle (dad’s side) who has lung cancer. I’ve posted a post about it already a few weeks ago)

My uncle had his first chemo therapy already on October 14, I think. He’s going to have his second one on November 4. Mom keeps injecting medicines in him to increase his white blood cells. Its good for him. The only side effect is that it makes him super dizzy. 

He’s lost patches of hair already, and he always has to weak a mask now. His immediate family does everything they can to make things easier for him. They even drive him all the way to La Union just to eat at Matutina or go to the beach. I see him fighting which is good. 

He went to the cemetery today to plant stuff where my grandparents and uncles are buried. He whispered to my dad, “I’ll go to the cemetery to plant and maybe fix the place for me already.” Its stuff like that that just makes you want to scream to the sky and ask, ‘Lord, why?’

My dad’s super worried. He avoids his brother if he can because he doesn’t want to see him suffer. He told my mom before, ‘I don’t want to see him. All I do is just bury my brothers’.

We were having dinner at a restaurant one Saturday with my family. We were having a happy conversation when suddenly we fell silent. My dad just blurted out, “How are we going to make it easier for him? Instead of him living for a few more months, how can we extend that into a year?’ 

To whoever is reading this, I may not know you, but can I ask a favor? Can I ask you to pray for my uncle – for him to not suffer so much. Or if you are not the religious kind, to just wish or hope or whatever it is you do for him to spend the rest of life happily, worry-free. Thank you. 

P.S. I’m sorry this post is all over the place. I just typed what came to my mind.
