First Blog Ever
one of my favorite holidays is Halloween, if that is considered a holiday. why? costumes, scary stories that seem to pop up during this time, movies and witch crafts are interesting. creepy but interesting.
a couple of days ago, tv shows started airing halloween related stories, one of which i randomly saw was an episode of US GIRLS where Iya Villania was sitting with some expert about the past lives of people. she showed him pictures of celebrities such as Anne Curtis who was a witch in her past life but still gorgeous, Charice Pempengco..a performer, Sarah Geronimo...a guy and is business minded and Iya...an adventurer.
so i did mine :|
just by entering my birth date...as usual...the only possible thing you could do when there's a calculation involved and here's what the site came up with.
sometimes i do read minds :| yeah i'm calm and sometimes may come off as if i don't care..hmmm :)
i'll blog before i go to bed.
since 9am, my pc was on so i could catch up on cityville goals :| watched two episodes of "the secret circle" and slected photos i took from the trip, made minor adjustments...photo merged some shots i took using the tripod and some were hand held :|
i don't know where to begin...7 hours flight from singapore on the 15th and arrived in australia last october 16...took a nap when we got to the hotel then off we went to look for the place where my mom will held their conference in the dockside.
sunny yet cold. the weather forecast i looked up didn't let me down this time :)
now my feet are swelling :| due to walking from Park Regis at Park Street...going north, west and east..i never went south because there wasn't much to see. when the time i saw the sydney opera house...all i could say was "finally!" then i asked someone if it's possible for me to get closer to the harbour bridge, he showed me how and when i got there...i couldn't take a shot at it :|
must have: wide angle lens
but the view was amazing!
now i'm getting bored about writing my adventure...so i'll just make it brief.
- while sitting on the steps of the sydney opera house waiting for the sunset and to have a closer look on the city lights...someone proposed to hos girlfriend..downside? he didn't bring anyone to capture the moment :|
- then i went to sit downstairs near the cove and a chinese woman with her daughter sat next to me...she BURPED (not holding back) and FARTED...TWICE
- then i went to the farther side just so i could take a panoramic shot of the SOP and the bridge when a guy passed my way. he was carrying his daughter and i couldn't help but stare on how her daughter kept on stretching the gum she's chewing and said "daddy, my hair got caught in my gum" :| well that explains it.
- finally it was 8pm and the sun had finally set...time to do my long exposures when an asian girl approached me and asked about her assignment about photography...i thought it'll just be for 15 minutes but it turned out to be a 1 hour of tutorial O_0 i waited 4 hours to do what i came there for and that happened :| i swear i was freezing but she didn't mind :| she even wants me to help her so to make sure, she asked for my email address.
there were lots of things to see, cultures i didn't know off, street performances, fashion houses, protests, etc.
and because facebook is giving me a hard time on uploading the shots i stitched together to form a panorama...i'll just post it here.
so this is how jet lag works...hmm...by the way i'm HOME!!! weee!
no facebook time for a week and i felt like i've missed a lot :|
as much as i want to blog about my previous trip, i must run some errands first :| ciao!
i don't have the will to shop anymore :| when i find myself in malls or tiangges and i have the money...i end up only buying a few and when i get home i always wish that i should've stayed longer and scouted pieces that could be of good use. it sounds like it's a bad thing :| in fact, it makes me not to spend my money in once place.
another thing that i really hate about myself when shopping is to look for stuff that costs less when the truth is the item is already cheap. that's the downside of being a cheapo like me :| now i can't find a pair of flat sandals that costs below 500 :(
and how come there are no more shoes in greenhills!? except those you see right after the guard at the entrance poked your bag.
list down all the items you want to buy, don't lose focus! that top might look cute but your not getting the stuff you have to have.
350 pesos worth of marikina made sandals is worth it. they have the sizes and it's a good buy if you slap those slip-ons on someone else' face and it actually hurt...and your shoes are still in good condition.
by the way, is it me or shawls and scarves are really a thing nowadays? i was looking for a shawl that is peach in color and has a cool print but my mom won't let me buy some because she have tons of shawls in her closet.
next item must have will be body-shapers.
not yet packed
few people only know that i will be leaving this friday and will be gone for a week. as i am (now) looking for possible attractions to photograph, i wanted to go on a bridge climb and have a bird's eye view on the sydney opera house. for $200 :| :(((((( it's not going to cut it :( now i'm regretting the days i had mcdonald's delivery (sob sob)
i can't tolerate bickering, back stabbing, or a petty fight that have blown out of proportion.
in this house, or in any other house, moms are always the top nagger. period.
my mom deserves better acknowledgement from us whether she achieved something or bought something ridiculously expensive. to me...out of everything she worked hard for, she deserve something big with us supporting every single of it.
i kindly approached my brother to give up my tv set that is placed in his room (after all, it's mine.) for my mom and asked him to check out her place...these little things count. i can't help but to be in her shoes asking everyone for approval. the most difficult thing to do is to get my dad there. he was against my mom on buying the condo and i totally understand him, but again, everyone in this family should just be a bigger person and support whatever..just as they did when i messed up. that's all i ask.
she might be not around here as often as she want, she might be going overboard or trying to go out on a limb when she helps someone and sometimes, she might not be the best person you can count on when it comes to handling her money, but she's my mom and all that is left for me to do is to be behind on everything she do no matter what :)
are condo units supposed to be small?
after months of asking the whole family to come to her place in quezon city, i finally gave in. i just got home form mami's condo where i spent the night, it's still a working progress...she's yet to fill the whole unit up. i asked a lot of questions and pointed a couple of flaws when i was there, she can't blame me...it's worth 3m O_o so yes. i'm allowed to whine.
one of the perks of sleeping over is i don't get to hear my tita bitching out. atlas. peace. she curses our dogs, neighbors, my mom, and her clumsiness.
despite the fact that a lot of people are suffering from the heavy rainfall that we are experiencing nowadays, i saw something beautiful about it.
as i went up to the terrace to have a smoke (usual spot) i saw how the wind adds up to the direction on how it will fall on our roof, how these huge droplets fall from the leaves and how it sticks to the electric wires and slide of to the other side. while looking at it, a song i've heard months ago kept playing in my head and i just want to make a senseless film about it :| that is, if i know how :|
when i had 5 pups and 3 grown up dogs, i often keep to myself my stress so that people in here won't give them away. even now, having 5 dogs is handful. you could tell just by looking around, you would see all our plants squished..pees and poops (CHAOS) but try to look at this guy, saving stray dogs and feeding them everyday. 140 as the article says..140 dogs living in his house :)
i really wish that those two sons of bitches would get caught and have bad karma for the rest of their life.
