"Nung bata ka, sinama kita sa mall, suot mo yung bago mong sapatos. Naglakad-lakad ka, tumakbo, naglaro. Paguwi natin nung hinubad ko sapatos mo halos magsugat na sa paltos. Nasasaktan ka na pala di ka man lang kumibo, di ka man lang nagsalita. Bata ka pa lang matiisin ka na." -Mama

This hit me so much. 

Lullabies by Lang Leav

September 20, 2014 / 32 NOTES ♥

I want you to know how happy you once made me, and though you really did hurt me, in the end, I was better for it. I don’t know if what we had was love, but if it wasn’t, I hope to never fall in love.

Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe

September 20, 2014 / 19 NOTES ♥

My mom and I visited this newly opened dog cafe in Katipunan, and it did not disappoint! There are I think 12 dogs and each one were so precious! 

This little cutie is my favorite! Her name’s Smile and she’s a pug (obviously). She was too cute for words!!

For our Go Fit UST episode, I was one of the segment talents and we shot at Casa Milan, (which is about 10 mins away from my house heh). We made a Vegan Parfait and got a 92 for the group grade and a 9/10 for my individual grade. So, so happy with the results, especially since I edited one of the segments which was literally one of the causes of my sleepless nights (hay). Anyway, I’m the head writer for the next episode airing on October 7, and I already started writing the script! We might even shoot at Eco Park so I’m excited for that!

PROCAFFEINITING, my new favorite word. Commune is a little bar and coffee shop around Makati that I loved!

Also, one Thursday night, a few of my Advertising group mates and I headed to Makati to interview and shoot an ad agency, Seven A.D. I can’t even stress how professional they were! I learned so much, that the hassle of commuting was almost worth it.

For our Tiger Pad episode, we shot at i-Chill Theater Cafe, a quaint hang out place for Thomasians along Dos Castillas street. The place was an artist’s little heaven, full of posters and scraps which registered so well on camera! The owner, Kuya Manzano (yes, Kuya is his real first name) was so nice to even give us free food for the shoot.

This was taken at Cool Beans Library Cafe along Maginhawa street. My mom and I have this weekly thing of finding coffee shops and this is one of my favorites. I mean, come on, books and coffee? Right up my alley!

image

Right in front of Cool Beans was this shop!!! Ahhhhhh I spent around 900php on books alone. This shop made me so happy. 

10 Books Challenge

September 07, 2014 / 32 NOTES ♥

So someone tagged me with this in facebook, and I guess you’re supposed to list 10 books that stayed with you in some way. So here goes in no particular order! (Don’t judge me or my tastes lol)

1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
“You have peace,” the old woman said, “when you make it with yourself. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone.” 
 
2. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
“A lot of you cared, just not enough.” 
 
3. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.” 
4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.” 
 
5. Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James
“Laters, baby.” 
 
6. If He Had Been with Me by Laura Nowlin 
“You think you deserve to be sad,” he says. There is a moment of silence as we look at each other. “You think it is okay for you to be sad every day. But it’s not okay. And you do not deserve it.”

Mahirap po ba exam sa DLSU?

Idk e I didn’t take there. :)

To the new man in her life,

August 27, 2014 / 15 NOTES ♥

Vibrant and full of zest for life — that’s who she was. She lit up a room whenever he walked in, with a smile that makes you jealous, because there was nothing but pure happiness and innocence. She had the most beautiful light brown eyes, which were even lighter in the sunlight. And her hair, oh her hair, they were a wild mess of tangles but in the most perfect way. 

She was smart — far too smart for me, and for any man, I believe. She takes no shit from anyone and stands up for what she believes in. Tell her she can’t, and she’ll shown you she can. She was is beautiful. Both on the outside and inside. She has the purest heart I know, one that’s been through too much heartbreak and pain, and you wouldn’t know it. Because she believes in herself, and she believes that everything will eventually fall into place. I’ve never known anyone as sure of herself as she is.

She reads too — a lot. One minute you’ll be constantly in contact with her, and the next you wait and wait and wait, and she won’t reply. Don’t panic. Go to her place, the old cafe in East 56th that no one knows about. You’ll find her there, sitting on the back booth, so engrossed in a novel she won’t even look up when you sit on the opposite table. Oh, and don’t disturb her; she’ll  come back to you in a few hours.

One last thing; let her be, but don’t ever let her go. Don’t make the same mistake I did, clinging on to her because I was too afraid to lose her. Don’t. Let her go when she needs it, because she’s that person. She doesn’t need anyone much more a man, but consider yourself lucky blessed, because she chooses to be with you. But don’t leash her, let her be the person she wants to be, and let her see that you’re exactly the kind of person she’s supposed to end up with; the kind that loves her enough to let her follow her dreams and grow into thee person she’s supposed to be. 

Oh, and love her. Love her like you’ve been drowning and she’s the relief you feel when you surface, because that’s exactly what she is. Don’t be me. I hope to God that you treat her well. You are so blessed to have her in your life, and I hope you’re smart  enough to realize that. 

Layag Productions | Via Manila BTS

August 24, 2014 / 31 NOTES ♥

As some of you know, TV Production is a junior CA’s major subject. We’ve been divided  into groups, and being in a TOMCAT group, we have to produce 8 TOMCAT shows, our major show being Via Manila, a travel show. Here’s what goes on behind the scenes.

For our first episode, I was a segment cameraman. Our segment’s called “Turo Turo”, wherein a talent had to learn how to ride a kalesa in Intramuros.

In order to capture moving shots, I stood in a pedicab, Rein holding me, with the kalesa right behind us.

This was our TDR (Technical Dress Rehearsal), 15 minutes before our very first live airing.

Meanwhile, the rain was pouring HARD outside, and this is what was going on in the library’s first floor.

Me being a stand in for our guest while they adjusted and practiced shots, with our host, Angelique.

Our entire group, Layag Productions, with our guest and our TV Prod prof.
