Sweetheart

Nita says, KAYA!

I have to say, this month’s challenge left me stumped for days. On top of which, my husband has been bullying me to do a lay-out of his ‘sports’ bike. He refuses to have it called a motorcycle (eyes rolling). Eventually, when the idea came to me, it was so simple to execute. For the title, I intentionally chose a mushy theme so that when people see it and my husband, they would automatically connect the two. Until you read the journaling, that is.


Journaling Reads:
Alain may call me ‘love’, but this baby right here is his ‘sweetheart’. It’s a Kawasaki KRR SSR model 2002, 150 cc sport bike and powered by KIPS. He bought this over a year ago and he is always tickled pink whenever the topic comes around to his it. He can discuss its attributes for hours and tell you in detail about his plans for its improvement. If you want to make his day, all you needed to do is mention something nice about his bike. He has no intention whatsoever to sell his baby but it gives him joy whenever somebody comes forward to bid him for it. He keeps it spotless and shiny at all times and he feels antsy whenever he sees a speck of dirt on it, which I guess is why he never rides it if there’s any hint of a drizzle. His main highlight for the week is to clean his baby. For him, it’s not enough to just wipe it dry. He takes out a blower to dry it thoroughly. It’s a good thing we have a covered garage, or I’m sure he’ll be dragging it inside our living room. And I dare not ask, but I bet he even has a pet name for it. I can only smile when I see him with his bike. I feel it’s a good thing that Alain has something to inspire and keep him entertained. And I have to admit, nothing makes him happier and contented than to dote on his sweetheart.

Nita, nakaka-inis ka na. Hindi na kita maabot. Mukhang nahanap mo na ang iyong "it". Me, I only see it in inggIT.

Nita Ang said...

I sure found my "it"... it is that I have a talent for scrap lifting -hehehe. Come over on Friday and I'll show where I got the idea for this one. O wag ka na mainis ha... alam mo na sikreto ko :D

Hi,

paturo ako sayo when we meet galing ng LO mo.

Nita Ang said...

Paturo sa akin? Baka naman you meant let's learn together. Marami pa rin akong di nasusubukan and am still trying new things with every LO (bite-size lang nang di mabulunan). Pero makakaasa ka, what little I know, I'd gladly share with you :D Pakilala ka muna... nyahahaha

Tin said...

Hi Nita! As always, I love your LO and especially your journalling! Put it this way, pag ang SO ko may hobby ok na din at least I know where he is hehe :-) So have you taken Sweetheart for a spin yet? :-)

Nita Ang said...

Tin, obsessed as my hubby is with his Sweetheart, you honestly think he will ever let me near the handle bar? Hanggang rear seat lang ako allowed noh. Pero, mind you, I get back at him naman by being a back-seat driver - hehehe. Alaskahan nga naming dalawa, if I ever get bumped by his Sweetheart, matataranta syang bababa... to check if there's a dent on his bike. Nyahaha
