1 hand on the rail, mobile shopping on the other

- November 21st, 2014 -

Hey! I could finally have some alone time with my laptop. Lately, I’ve been waking up at 6am everyday even if I have no work/classes because the carpenter arrives at 7am. That time may not be that early for others who take the MRT at 5am but for someone like me who only starts to feel sleepy by 2am, 10am is my preferred waking hour.

Anyway, I’m happy to announce that all carpentry works are done. Next time I’ll be sharing the before and after transformation when I finally purchase the dining chairs, study chair, water dispenser, and a/c unit. Apparently, I need a 2hp split-type unit to cool my place. Any suggestions on the brand? The Samsung premium inverter looks really classy btw. I’m such a loyal consumer. But I’ll take whichever has the better features and compressor. What do you use at home/in your office? Read the rest of this entry »

Grey is My Favorite Color

Grey is my favorite color along with various shades of blue green and pastels. I’ve had my phase of orange, brown, and black addiction. But in college, I learned about minimalism and appreciated how everything looks good with white or black or grey. Suddenly my closet slowly filled with grey items from dresses to shoes.

Fashion wasn’t as important to me as a good cut of raw salmon but I also want to look fashionable. College life is tough enough without having to be a probinsyana sticking out. I just want to blend in and not get noticed for the wrong reasons. Ayy! The pressure of social standards. Read the rest of this entry »

This bag has been with me for more than 3 years I think. I love how it can go from day to night. Plus it’s very roomy without the bulk! Today, I’m in the mood to share the contents of my go-to bag so here we go… Read the rest of this entry »

Tanghalang Pilipino Summer Theater Workshop

- October 5th, 2014 -

They say those Pisces-born are artistic and creative. Although I never felt artistic enough, I knew that I had crazy if not creative ideas. In the back my mind, I’ve always wanted to be a performer. I wanted to be admired and inspire many people. To me, the best way I could express myself is through singing and dancing. No, I don’t sing nor dance well compared to some people I know. I was content knowing that I enjoy performing regardless of how good or bad I was.

Backstage, makeup time~

When I resigned from my job in March 2014, I thought of trying out a new field. I wanted to take a break from office life. Theater was something I never thought of. Even if I was part of the school’s Theater Arts Club in gradeschool through high school, I think the most we did was some pantomime. There weren’t even scripts then. That experience shut down what could be a potential interest in acting.

 

In college, I had the general idea what theater is about. Though I’m not one to attend plays and be in the know. It was a rather expensive activity for me. Our college didn’t have a theater group either. The only times I watched a play or even went to the Cultural Center of the Philippines was to watch Cinemalaya and some shows required in class.

 

There were two factors that prompted me to do theater: Read the rest of this entry »
