Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

We had a photoshoot showcasing Japanese fashion. I decided to go Harajuku-style, although this is a bit toned-down compared to the real ones.

After a busy and rainy day, my buddies and I lounged at Starbucks inside Fully Booked. I sat beside the glass window of the top floor facing the busy streets below when I took this shot.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

My eccentricities can either be awesome or awful for other people.

Some have accepted who I am and they would prefer that I have this “dark” aura while some want me to change and loosen all the weirdness.

Either way, I am just glad that all of them are aware of my unusual habits and tolerate them…

Heeyy, I don’t bite! ☻

Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

When I hear the word “indulge” what comes to my mind are FOOD and VANITY!

I indulge myself with things that would feed me (literally and figuratively speaking) whenever my time and my money permit.

* * * * flooding with self-portraits and lots and lots and LOTS of food!!! * * * *

New Year = New Look ! ! !

Every six months or so, I’ll visit the salon and have my hair rebounded. I wished to have a fiery-red hair just like my old wig but I also feared that my boss would kick me out for doing such. December came and so did our beefed-up salary. I really wanted a new look! I disregarded the fear of losing my job and I hurried to Heaven’s Salon (Rizal branch) right after our trip to Mindoro. Haha! It was long and tiring because we spent almost ten hours to get everything done. Since my hair was originally black, dyeing it hot-red turned it auburn-ish instead. I was dissatisfied at first but I learned to love it. I will go back there after three months to have it redone (and hopefully get the result I want)… then the cycle will continue.

Cross Pendant Collection

My fiancé wore a cross pendant when we first met. Ever since that day, I had been fascinated with cross pendants and I have collected quite a lot in due time. I am not religious, though, so I never bought crucifixes. Crosses are staple accessories for Goths. Most of my necklaces and pendants have either been worn out, given to others or misplaced. I only have the current batch with me now. More details on this blog entry: [My Collection : Pendants . . .]

… and now, the FOOD!!!

Feast thy eyes with photos of luscious dishes and sweet pastries from various restaurants and shops within Metro Manila. For details, please read my [blogs about food and drinks].

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

“I dig my toes into the sand ~ the ocean looks like a thousand diamonds ~ strewn across a blue blanket”
— lyrics from “Wish You Were Here” by Incubus

I had been on a few out-of-town trips with either my fiancé, friends or colleagues. Each time we find ourselves in the beach, it became a pilgrimage to take a snapshot of our feet semi-buried in the sand.

Happy Feet ♥ Bohol 2010

WHITE. This snapshot was taken in the Virgin Islands of Bohol. Fine-grained white sand greeted us as soon as we unboarded our boat. We walked on the shoals barefooted. My trip to Bohol with my fiancé is still one of my favorite memories. I really want to go back there soon. Continue reading
