Hang A Shining Star...

This is one of the Filipino Parol (Farol or lantern) made of multi-colored capiz shells that I hang at the windows inside the house. They are very colorful and pretty when lit.


I will be back blogging before or after New Year's day. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Ha! I just ordered a parol last week and I received it just yesterday! It's my first parol so I'm excited about it. I will post about it later this week and will link here too.

Merry Christmas oggi!

I've had the parol for the past 4 Christmases and the lights sequence is still working very well.

Maligayang Pasko from San Diego!

Those parols sure are beautiful, but expensive! In our neighborhood, you can tell who the Filipino families are by the parols hanging in the windows...

Maligayang Pasko caninecologne!

The parol are the moderately priced ones that I got from the Filipino grocery. I wanted the very tiny ones made with papel de japon but they don't sell those.

BTW, I like your name which I'm presuming is from one of my top 20 favorite movies, Sixteen Candles.:D

yes, my moniker is taken from gedde watanabe's character from one of my fave movies from the 80's. i know it's a bad asian stereotype, but that character was hilarious!

caninecologne, Gedde will always be remembered as (the Chinese/Japanese/Korean?) Long Duk Dong!
I suddenly have the urge to watch it.:)
