I walked around the resort with other bloggers.  I love their infinity pool.  This shot...

Project 365 2011

Posted by on Jan 28, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, Personal

I have wanted many things, and started many things – but I don’t finish it.  This year, my resolution is to be more disciplined and finish what I started.  I think this whole project 365 will help me own the word “Discipline”. 2010 did great things for me.  I feared somehow that I won’t be able to live up to the hype I had in 2010 for the new year.  But, the...

It’s the 16th Annual Hot Air Balloon and it usually happens during Valentine’s Day season. It was an awesome experience for me last year.  I love road tripping and we drove all the way to Clark as early as 3:30 am just to avoid traffic and lines in the ticketing area.  Believe me, there will be a lot of people – it will be a feast and watching these balloons is one thing that you must...

Last Halloween, I decided to dress up as Pikachu and Vince as my Pokemon trainer – Ash Ketchum. So, How did I do it? First of all, the yellow bra and the yellow skirt were two things that I just bought in Divisoria.  I was scouting for either a skirt or shorts.  If you are not too comfortable wearing this, you can find alternatives like yellow t-shirts or a yellow jumpsuit and yellow pants....

Ngong Ping 360 and Avenue of the Stars

Posted by on Nov 25, 2010 in Art & Photography, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

It was my first time riding the cable car going to Ngong Ping 360 village and the price of $219 for the crystal cable car (glass bottom) with 2 themed attractions (monkey story and Buddha story) was all worth it.  You get to ride the cable car for 25 minutes and you will pass by the harbor bay, the mountains, have a great view of the big buddha and the Hong Kong International Airport. After...

Confidence with Wacoal

Posted by on Oct 26, 2010 in Art & Photography, Fashion, Featured, Life, Personal

One of the biggest, most obvious physical change in my body when I was transitioning from being a teeny bopper to a lady is my chest.  It changed my life!  On fifth grade, I had my first sign of transition – menstruation!   I think I was the first among my classmates that had one and because of that, I had a bump on my chest earlier than the rest of them.  I thought it wasn’t normal and...

Flair Photography on Action and Fitness Magazine (Total Fitness)

This is another backlog But, I still want to blog about it anyway.  I kinda stopped pursuing my passion for photography.  I got discouraged because I don’t have enough moolah to buy enough gears for my photography.  But, what the heck.  Looking back, I realized I didn’t need those for now.  The camera that I currently have, and my passion and eye for photography are all that I got and I...
