Hello Hurricane
you can't
silence my love
Speak up or die
Tammie says Smile!

Hello there, Stranger!
Welcome to my humble little blog.

The name's Tammie, but friends call me Tam (not 'thumb').

Who am I, you ask?
I'm not that smart top-scorer girl in your class.
I'm not that pretty lass you always see on the streets either.
I am passionate, stubborn and emotional.
My absolute most favorite thing to do is hanging out with people I care & love.
My passion burns for Jesus & photography.
I wish to travel more and see more.

This blog was created so I get to jot down my feelings.
Happenings in life.
That is, if I'm not too lazy to update ;)

Isn't it funny that every time you finish reading someone else's blog you want to do something to your own?

Especially if that someone is prettier, richer and more successful then you.

Okay fine, I'm having self-esteem issues here. But whatever.

Then I went and did this quiz and lookie....

You Have Low Self Esteem 20% of the Time

You have high exceptionally high self-esteem and a healthy sense of self worth.

You believe in yourself, and you know how to be the real you. You love yourself, imperfections and all.

I have pretty good self esteem after all.

Oh but I just realized, wouldn't it mean that I'm not convinced that I have good self-esteem, that I made me click to take this quiz??

Geez. Ironic.

Anyway, I've decided to blog something interesting as much as I can.
I've told you guys I am addicted reading up on mummies recently right?

Guys, meet Rosalina Lombardo.

If looks could fool, you'd be fooled. Haha. What am I crapping.

Anyway, this little baby girl is in fact older then me and you.

No wait, let me rephrase that. She is in fact older then both my age and yours added up.

Yups. Little Rosalina here is actually 89 yeas old. Well, at least her body is. She died of pneumonia in 1920, 2 years after she was born.

What caught my eyes most about her is her hair.. I can't believe that a 89 year old can still have such shiny and luscious hair. Her blonde curls looks so natural; they clearly don't look dead. Even I don't have hair like that. Darn.
Then, I was also taken by how much flesh she still have. Her cheeks are so round. They even look soft. Except her skin is a little decolorized, but who can blame the poor girl, after being dead for almost 8 decades?
Rosalina's eyes are slightly open, (if you view her from another angle) so it makes her look like she's just sleeping, rather then dead.

I know, I know. I can't keep my mouth closed too when I 1st saw her. Her eyelashes, eyebrows and nose are still intact. She's got to be the best looking dead person ever.

I mean compare little Rosalina 

with this

Yes, Rose dear is a gorgeous dead girl.

I've learnt that Rosalina is from a rather rich family. So when she died, her family wanted her to be preserved. They hired a famous chemist, Dr. Alfredo Salafia, who used a type of formula to mummify her tiny body. Apart from that, this doctor also made sure her coffin was covered in lead and 2 layers of glass to make sure no bacteria or germs can get in.

It seems like the doctor's techniques work. Recently, they uncovered the doctor's famous drug formula that successfully preserved dead bodies.

No, I'm not making all these up. Google if you don't believe me.

Anyways that made me think, if I had a chance to be mummified, would I let them do it to me?

Erm.... no. It's weird.
It'd be a great tourist attraction, and my country would probably love my dead body for it but I'd like to let my body Rest In Peace.

How about you?
