Birds and Leather

I braved the campus in this cute chiffon number, but I also covered up with a leather jacket because I'm shy like that (haha).

It takes a while.

There's always that split second delay-- when anger rises, when desperation grows, when regret finally surfaces.

But it also takes a while for us to learn and succeed and finally figure out who we are in this eternal mess we call our lives, and what we ultimately plan to do with the remaining pieces of our sanity we've managed to salvage.

My friend Reggie asked me just minutes back, "when did life get so fcked up?"

Maybe it always was, we just took a while to realize.

What you don't see in these photos is the fact that this dress is not red, it's orange. Tomato-orange to be precise.

I once read a line from one of my father's books, something I always keep in mind:

"Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough"

Why you shouldn’t hit “share”: AMALAYER

Life was simpler before all this technology. We talked to people, we breathed fresh air, and we can have a bad day without fear of being prosecuted in cyber space.

We all get mad. At one point or the other, we reach our limits, then all hell breaks lose. And then, the world goes on-- at least that was the case before camera phones and the internet. Today the cyberworld paused as most activity on Facebook circled around a young lady who got mad at the train station.

Who, me?

The Cebu Party Boat!

I've been wanting to go on a vacation but present circumstances have not allowed me this luxury. For now, I settle by living vicariously through the internet (as I always do. hehehe).

We all laugh at things we were and things we become.

I just read something recently that made me think. All this time I had been trying to explain this feeling,  this state I find myself in, but I've not found my words. 

What I want to say and feel existed there exactly.

And there is no greater joy than being able to say what you want to say, or no bigger sorrow when someone else, with their words, explains what it was that you could not explain yourself.

I wish I could write.

Unboxing the BDJ Box and the Belle de Jour 2013 Planner

Last week, I blogged about going to the BDJ Box launch. I took home a Belle De Jour planner and a BDJ Box for myself that day. Do you want to see what's inside?

Vacationing in Bicol

Our Bicol trip in photographs.

We stayed at the Azaña beach house in Dolo. This is the view as you walk along the shore.
