090: Engrossed

31 03 2010

When I’m too busy to take selfies, I take photos of random stuff instead, usually of what makes me busy at that time.

This time around, it’s my final plate for one of my subjects. My progress has been agonizingly slow, despite the fact that I’ve been working on it everyday since last week.




089: Dear God,

30 03 2010

Whenever I see sunbeams like this, streaming through the clouds or trees, I immediately say, “Ayun si God!” I’m not exactly sure when or why I started doing that, but I keep imagining a fanfare of angels singing and the Voice of God emanating from the sky through the sunbeams.

088: There, I make you look better

It’s my brother’s birthday today! So here’s an old photo of him showing off his favorite books (The Ugly Duckling and a We Wish You A Merry Christmas that plays an actual melody) while I fix up his hair so we look alike. I wonder where those lawn chairs are now.

Some people are surprised to know that I have a big brother, because they don’t see him with us. He’s been living in the US with our father-side relatives for almost 3 years now. Then again, even if he were in the Philippines, he isn’t very present in my life. No, we’re not close. When we were kids he was always my anti-matter. He teased me a lot and if I wanted something, he’d want the opposite (e.g. I wanted to eat at Jollibee, he wanted to go to McDonald’s). When we were older the teasing stopped and was replaced by silence. He grew distant and spent more time with friends than at home and even if he were home he’d usually lock himself in his room. I let him be, figuring that he’d grow out of it someday.

I’ve never felt I had a protective, caring, guiding sibling. Then again, I could attribute my independent mind to his behavior. Hehe. Either way, he’s still my brother no matter what. Happy birthday, kuya!

Running drills: before you run, you must learn how to jump. XD

These are strengthening exercise for various parts of your legs, c/o coach Jojo Macalintal.

086: It is in the Darkness Where You See the Light

27 03 2010

It’s Earth Hour and I’m home alone. I cooked myself some scrambled egg with tuna and rosemary and Chili-Mansi instant pancit canton before 8:30 then ate my food with only a solar-powered emergency lamp accompanying me.

085: With Your Cherry Lips and Golden Curls

26 03 2010

One of my favorite pasta concoctions is Macaroni and Cheese, but I never tried to learn how to make some from scratch. I love the Kenny Rogers Roasters side dish with its cute shell pasta, and I’ve tried this easy-to-cook kind where you boil milk and butter and add the pasta and cheese powder (apparently I forgot the brand name), but this Lucky Me Mac & Cheez takes the cake (or cheese)! For 15 pesos I get a merienda-size serving of lovely, cheesy comfort food. Cheap trip win!

I’d like to think that Were-Rabbit-Wallace is enjoying the cheesy goodness with me.

084: I Can Haz Curves?

Apparently I don’t see this very often, thus the excitement.

Also, I love this shirt of mine. Pasalubong from relatives in Texas.


I also discovered something interesting in the freezer today:
