Anonymous: hello. you may not know me but ive been following your blog for quite some time now. since 2012 to be exact. just wanted to point out how much youve changed. not in a bad way but in a sadder way. :( i remember how funner you were posting text posts with gifs, posting pics of how your day went, and doing lookbook and everything. now you post a lot of sad black and white pics. what happened? hope you publish this.
Hey there! Before anything else, I would like to thank you. I didn’t know anyone would actually keep track of my blog! Let alone care. Haha! So thank you.
Change is inevitable.
NAKS. But seriously though, this actually got me thinking. I’m sorry I haven’t been posting “fun” stuff recently and that’s just because I’ve had this whole new perspective on photography that changed my way of blogging as well. Before, I used to take photos of things as they are. Such as, like what you said, how my day went so I’ll be blogging about my outfit of the day or what I just ate or where I am at. But now, I’ve realized that I can express emotions through my photos as well, that I can instill a true living story in each and every shot. Whether it be a conceptualized photo or a street photo, there’s still a narrative behind it. Thus, if my photos are instilled with my emotions, and since my blog consists of my photos, my blog reflects my emotions.
Don’t get me wrong, I still am that fun person. It’s just that I’ve been pouring a lot of sadness into photos recently because it’s the only place where I can put them. So, in a way, my blog goes deeper emotionally (for me) than what you could physically see.
Sorry for the feels.
Happy New Year!
I’ve made a habit
of watching people
alone: this pair
sharing a table, drinking
coffee. They talk (now
and then) behind news-spreads.
His legs are crossed, reading
glasses on the tip of his nose,
eyes almost closed.
She holds the paper, covering
her face. She wears
a watch she doesn’t check.
They sip once
in a while, together.
it must be.
- Christel Kimberly Cantillas
you have tainted me
with your kaleidoscope love
null but a palette
A song plays on the radio
that reminds me of you
a song that talks about true love
but is your love for me true too?
The birds soar across the sky
that reminds me of you
a bird is as free as the infinite sky
but is your love as infinite too?
Plastic roses sit behind a glass window
that reminds me of you
formed to have undying beauty
but is your love as undying too?
How I wish an innocent child
could remind me of you
a child who wouldn’t dare tell a lie
but you’ve already lied to me too.
Happy Birthday Sis!
I made you a quick caricature using a felt tip pen. A felt tip pen.
Remember when we were young and I used to go to your room a lot? I would draw random stuff with your felt tip pens and you would get mad at me for wasting the ink. Then my birthday came and you gave me my own set of felt tip pens. Your first birthday gift to me. Looking back, you didn’t merely give me a set of disposable pens. You encouraged me to do what I loved.
So with that cheesy intro being said, I would like to express my sincerest appreciation. Thank you for being someone I can talk to, laugh with, confide in, and most importantly… someone who can drive me around town. I’m kidding! But seriously, thank you for being such a great sister.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re kicking ass and blinding everyone with your awesomeness! Wishing you a happy happy happy birthday! Take care! God bless! Hope to see ya soon! We miss you! Love ya!
My Scumbag Research Teacher
- Makes us review 3 medias from the New York Times (5-8 pages), a movie, and the current lesson for a test. Day of test: 10 questions from 3 medias.
- Discusses The New York Times, gets mad when we don’t know the actual lesson we’re supposed to be discussing.
- Keeps reminding us that “Time is Diamond.” He then blabbered about his life for 1 hour.
- Gets mad for not using the “right” style/color/size/font in our powerpoints.
- Gets mad at us for only being good at memorization. He gives us a test every week from The New York Times where we have to memorize 10 pages of material.
- He complains how bad we are at Research. (He’s our Research teacher)
- Announces there is a test the next meeting, takes it back on day of test.
- He gives a project to his students so that his 2nd year son can use it as a resource.
- "I’M A WALKING ENCYCLOPEDIA!!" (actual words)
- "I KNOW MORE THAN YOU!" (actual words)
- He gives a low score for “not meeting his standards.”
- "Hindi niyo ba alam yan? Bakit ako, alam ko?" (actual words)
- Gives a lecture about the characteristics of being a good researcher (being humble, open-minded, etc.) but does not have any of them.
- He diverts a research proposal into a completely different topic that he knows so he can ask questions that only he knows.
- Brags about his 2 year old baby that could say “Wa pasok didi”
- Talks about his 2 year old baby that can “analyze” already for 30 minutes. Blames us for wasting time.
- "What movie has nanotechnology? It’s my favorite movie kasi maraming sexy." (actual words)
- "HA! MERON AKO NUN! WALA KAYO NUN!" (actual words)
- "Buti pa si Sir Dave (our hot student teacher) nakakahiram sa inyo. Ako hindi." (actual words)
So here’s a list that I frequently update since the school year started at the back of my Research notebook of all the shiznit our scumbag Research teacher said.There’s more actually but I was either too lazy to write them down or I left my notebook in the locker. So now that I’m a graduate, I can safely publish this now right?
Anonymous: how did you lose so much weight?!?!?!? whats your secret :(
I guess you follow me on twitter? I started dieting when I was in second year. I follow the “Eat like a king on breakfast, a prince on lunch, and a slave on dinner” saying and I don’t eat much meat (especially pork) and rice. Then I got really obsessed and somewhat became bulimic. AND I DO NOT ADVICE YOU TO DO THAT PLEASE IT IS TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT I MADE A HUGE MISTAKE AND NOBODY SHOULD TREAT THEIR BODY THAT WAY. And after I got sick, I stopped dieting. But for some reason, my body kept on getting thinner. Maybe I got used to eating less? Not sure. And I often do indoor exercises (such as hip hop abs lol) and weights if I have spare time. AAAND I got really tall, like from 5”4 to 6”0 in a span of 2 years. So that’s probably another factor why I got thinner. BUT PLEASE, do not ever treat your body badly just because you want to get thinner. Love your body, everyone is unique in their own way. :)
yep. Awkward fans will know.
at a fitting room...
it fits me perfectly!
yeah, it does. what if you get fatter?
I will not allow myself to get fatter.
Oh yes, I definitely want to engage in social gatherings/events/activities.
*turns social awkwardness on*
will be posting food posts tonight that will surely make your mouth water. :P

So I was so blessed to be able to go to the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas!
It was filled with really awesome stuff…

So when I get back I promise to post lotsandlotsss of photosss!
Anonymous: Bakit hindi ka naglalagay ng watermark sa pictures mo?
It’s not like I’m some professional photographer right? :)) Photography is just like a hobby to me. :) I would actually be flattered if I see one of my photographs being circulated around the web. That’ll be like telling me that I contribute good art. :D
