This is why I love airports.
You’d see more of her as you go on reading this post.
Epic. I’m so good at stalking. OMG.
Sunset view at BGC.
Ended the night with Paolo.
It’s her again.
You know he’s a true friend when you block him in instagram and he doesn’t get mad.
This will be my last trip to Manila for this month. Wait, it’s already the end of the month. Right.
In a crowded room, my eyes will always search for you.
5 am flight to Manila last May 8, 2013 with my family.
Was still so sleepy so I ordered coffee from Bo’s. It’s been a long while since the last time I had coffee from Bo’s. The last time was during Sinulog 2011 with Paolo and Audrie at their Capitol branch while we had breakfast while waiting for the Mardi Gras to start.
Quiapo Church. WOW MY SISTER NAILED THIS SHOT FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! YES, ALL CAPS BECAUSE I’M THAT AMAZED!
I was gonna take a picture of that man sleeping but failed. Someone passed by.
The same duck I saw 2 months ago at Greenbelt.
Tagaytay, Philippines. No need to say much about the place. It’s all written in your History books.
Stopped over at Nuvali. Ordered a grande Hojicha at Sbucks. I like the Barista of the month’s name. Even if he didn’t get my name right.
Till then, Manille.
I love and hate my Ricoh XR500. I love it because it creates very vibrant photos and natural light leaks. But I can’t adjust its shutter speed because it’s kind of shutter priority. I know it’s convenient for me but sometimes, I want to use my own exposure. Anyway, I’m back in Cebu!
I’m sorry I always say sorry.
“I don’t know how it is you are so familiar to me- or why it feels like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before- in another time, a different place- some other existence.”
Page 5 of 23. Struggled to have my license renewed. Failed.
Sister’s 19th birthday.
“I want to kiss you, but only in the most connotative way possible, so that no dictionary definition would stand a chance to describe how your lungs could be filled with the sweetest air possible, and yet you would still be so breathless.”
“Your voice resonates down to my toes and your smile lives in my eyes and every time my mind wanders, it goes directly to you.”
“But beauty means less if they don’t witness it with you. You see something sublime and your first thought is that they should be there with you. It’s not as good without them. They illuminate. They make everything more.”
“Anything worth having is definitely worth waiting for.”
Had two rolls processed earlier. All photos were taken a week before and during the Holy Week.
Sunrise at home. I always look forward to seeing this every time I come home.
Sunset view somewhere in the city.
The moon on a Palm Sunday.
I forgot to ask for her name but this sweet little girl made me a palm cross worth 10 pesos each. I took the one worth 5 pesos instead and still gave her 10 pesos. She gave me a smile. :)
Certainly not the best place to live in but this is still my favorite place on Earth. I hate this place but I still prefer to end my day here. The only place where I can do anything that I want to do. It looks just like a hospital room but to me, it’s home. It has been my home for almost two years now. Even though the security guards are making my life miserable.
Ting-ting, the owner of the Creative Corner gave me this cute teaspoon for free when I bought a cup and a saucer from her.
I love backlights but I love this girl even more. Hi, cyst!
My usual breakfast. Coffee and wheat bread with cheese. This time with grapes that I stole from our house. Haha! These used to be the only things that I look forward to waking up for everyday. Thank God somebody found me and made me realize that there’s more to life than having coffee in the morning and take a picture of it for instagram’s sake. This person has become my life now. The only reason why I keep going on. Everyday, he makes my life wonderful. :)
At the airport while waiting for my boarding time going to Ozamis. I like spending time, watching people wait, part ways, and cross paths at airports and bus stations.
Hi, cutie! *
My family fetched me from the airport and we headed straight to this seafood restaurant in the middle of the sea somewhere in Sinacaban.
And just like what we annually do, we did the Visita Iglesia from the churches in Ozamis going to Oroquieta.
And the photo dump ends here since the camera that I brought with me got damaged. Thank Steve for iPhones! I was able to manage going on with the trip by simply doing mobile photography. Haha! Photos above were taken with a Zenit 12 XP and Minolta X300 loaded with lomography films.
Ay wait! I’ll end this entry with a latest summer photo of me! HAHA!
Hi, summer! We meet again! :)
Here’s a photo dump of my trip to Manila during the Valentine’s week.
Twas my first time celebrating Valentine’s in another place. Well it’s not like Valentine’s is really a special day but it’s still memorable to be able to celebrate it out of my comfort zone.
You know, the usual window shot inside the plane. Haha!
I specifically requested to be seated somewhere between 20-25 A during my flight and the one who checked me in gladly accepted my request. But just when I stepped inside the plane, I checked my seat number and it was 25 F which is on the opposite side of my request. Good job, kuya. Good job! Haha! I wanted to be seated in Row A so that I can have a better view of the sunset. But this is all what I got being in Row F.
The only view from our room. Haha! I hate living in the city.
Spent most of my time in the hotel room during the day to wait for Kaysha until she gets back so we can have dinner together at night.
Hello there, old friend! You all know who he is in my life. Haha!
Well, when in Manila…
My pretty roomie, Kaysha!
We spent Valentine’s day together at Greenbelt since we just stayed right across Greenbelt 5.
And another sunset.
My vacation was shortened because of an emergency at home. Instead of going home on the 17th, I went home on the 15th. Stayed in the airport for 4 hours while waiting for my flight. Brought my Nikon FM2 only. I know this is a very late post. Sorry :p How was your Valentine’s day? P.S. Thank you so much to Kaysha and Ian for this opportunity! I needed a break so bad!
my weekend’s continuation! Had to consume all 36 shots earlier to have the roll processed.
Forever vain. loljk. Forever blessed to have a sister who knows what to do when a camera faces her.
Hmm… makes me wanna dye my hair again.
I love Sundays with my family <3 We all enjoy mini road trips like this. That’s all! Sorry for the sudden photo dump! D: Good night! :)
Had another roll processed earlier while waiting for my biz cards to be printed. Loaded my Nikon FM2 with an expired Superia again :) These are just random shots over the weekend!
Broken blinds in my pad.
Droplets on Travis’ roof
Sister in double exposure. I love multiple exposures! Still need to practice though. But I’m getting there! HAHA!
This was our view when we had dinner at Lantaw Floating restaurant.
Went home last weekend and slept beside my sister who was supposed to wake me up for sunrise but she failed. Took a photo of her hand instead. Haha!
And my favorite part of our house with a view of the sea. This is where I enjoy my cup of coffee every morning while watching the sunrise.
Mum decided to have a mini road trip to the south of Cebu and treat us some ice cream in Molave milk station.
But before we reached our destination, we stopped by at some furniture shop.
I love it there! I love the smell of wood. It smells like moleskine paper. Haha! This was taken with a self-timer because no one in my family knows how to use a manual slr..
…to be continued! The other photos from the road trip are still yet to be processed. Wasn’t able to consume all 36 shots. How’s your weekend?
I don’t think I can ever stop myself from taking photos using film. Help meeee it’s emptying my wallet! :(((
I can’t stop taking pictures. I just can’t.
So last Saturday, I travelled by land to get to the Mystic Island, Siquijor. From Cebu City, I stood up at the bus until it reached Argao. More or less, that’s two hours. Haha! When I reached Santander, I took a ferry boat to Sibulan for an hour then rode a tricycle to Dumaguete City and from there, I took another ferry boat to Siquijor for another hour! Wheew! Did it all by myself! Haha! I already planned to go to Siquijor before September ends because October will be a very busy month for me…and prolly all the coming months. And just last week, my boyf’s band was invited to play for Lunatrek event. Haha! Talk about coincidence. So we just met at Siquijor. And I swear it was really hard but very fun before we saw each other! It’s like we were playing hide and seek on a huge and “mystical” island. Before I reached Siquijor, he texted me to go to where they were. But when I reached Siquijor, there was no service to the network I’m subscribed at. And when I reached to the said place where he told me they were at, they were not there. Haha! Luckily, my father’s ancestors are from Siquijor. Me and the first tricycle driver (because I had like 6) I hired had the same last names! So he took me to different resorts just to find the boyfriend. And I swear, people from Siquijor are the most accommodating! The fares are up to you if how much you’d give them! Wow! I wish it’s like that in Cebu… or anywhere! Then finally, we saw each other in the venue for the event. The event ended at around 3 in the morning but we went ahead at around 12 mn because there were no tricycles available for hire already. We had to ask a someone who was half drunk to take us and the rest of the band members to where we stayed. Wheew! That was long! Haha! The next morning, beach, beach, beach! Yay! So I brought my lomo camera with me which is the La Sardina and also my Canon 400D. But for now, I’ll post the lomo shots. These are unedited so bare with the photos. Haha!
I will forever be obsessed with the sun, sand and sea. I don’t mind getting tan forever.
I had a perfect getaway! A great combination of fun, excitement, thrill and adventure… and not to mention, R&R which I badly needed!
We stayed at Villamar Marine. Had American style for breaky.
Lol me! Whatever happend to my hipbones, I don’t know.
White sand, palm trees, salty air! This is heaven for me!
I took this one with me but I lost it somewhere :(
Mehehe. When am I having this kind of vacay again? :(
Good thing the weather cooperated that day. Or else, vacay epic fail.
Then we reached Cebu at 4:00 in the morning today. At around 6am, I had to do errands already. I still don’t have enough sleep yet. Hoping to get one smooth sleep in a while.
A taste of Summer on September! I wish to have this again soon. Til then?
Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick and think of you…
HAHA! The song fits perfectly for this picture! Helliw guys! I’m back from Siquijor! Will blog about it later. Here’s a cow as my pasalubong for you! HAHA!
