Stangers, again…

This video introduced me to Wong Fu and been their avid fan since. This has been my top most favourite WF vid of all time. It just have all the feels to this.

I re-watched this and I suddenly can relate to everything, maybe not the “shouting at each other” part because he never shouted at me. Ha ha But yeah, two people starts as strangers and when the two of you hit it off, everything just blurs. But unfortunately in most times, it never stays that way… it either boils down to 1) both of you will continue to make it work or 2) tolerate until it’s not mendable anymore.

Sometimes, the time you realise that everything had already fallen apart, it’s already too late to patch things up. And I have to admit that it hurts (really bad). Depressing as it may seem to break up with the person whom you have shared every bit of you. That’s how it is, that’s how life is. It may seem that both of you had lost a part of yourselves but the truth is hearts don’t break even, somewhere, somehow the other one tried harder, other one is hurting more…

To end this post, let me quote a part of their conversation where Marissa asked what’ll happen if they don’t end up together.

What do you think will happen if we don’t end up being together? Will we hate each other? Will we keep in touch?

I think that if life separates us, and we’ll be in totally different places, always remember when our paths aligned from this period on and I’ll be thankful for that. And hope that wherever you are, you’ll be thankful, too. I think that’s the best we can wish for.”

I am hopeful that wherever and whatever you’re doing, you’re happy and thank you.

Check out other videos of Wong Fu. They have so many other amazing shorts and videos.

Online shoe shopping

I ordered Vivi Captoe in mint (P850) from Satchi Store arrived today. But I got mine for only P799 since it was already on sale. Lucky me.

I am so in love with it. Who wouldn’t? Mint + gold, perfect combo! But buying online could be risky. Let me share some personal tips I consider first before clicking that checkout button:

  1. Check customer’s reviews & comments about the store/product. Sometimes, you can spot a bogus shop or if the product you want doesn’t live up to the photograph.
  2. Make sure to ask for the dimensions/sizes before purchasing. Sizes vary from one shop to another like dresses indicated in S/M/L. Shoe sizes sometimes come in smaller sizes than the usual so it is better to ASK.
  3. Find out what materials used in the item is it made of—cotton, chiffon, suede, silk, etc. And for shoes, some are made with pig’s lining, and I think some people are quite sensitive about this.
  4. For meet-ups, try to bring someone with you. Don’t go and meet a stranger in shady places.
  5. For deliveries, make sure to check the goods upon receipt. If the item is damaged or wrong item was sent to you, inform the seller immediately.
  6. Lastly, don’t be shy to ask. Ask, ask, ask. Get my point? Lol It is important that you are sure on what you are paying for.

Happy shopping! 🙂

Love’s complications

Love Korea.jpg

“Love has it’s complications,” a friend told me yesterday, “especially if you are in a relationship.”

I agree with her. It will not be easy from the beginning until the end. It takes both persons to make it work. Cliché as it may seems, actions DO speak louder than words, right? Sometimes words are just plain words without the gestures to back it up.

She asked me: “Why does he live on his own little world? And just do his own thing like I am not in his life? He’s more involved and interested with his friends. We should be partners in this right?”

All I can do was listen to her, and silently agree with her. It’s not wrong to have your own thing but it’s important to be each others’ partner/companion. Involvement and honesty plays an important part and remember not to take each other for granted. Never make them feel that they are not important and they don’t have any part in your life, because if you do, you’ll be pushing them farther from you bit by bit until you realise that it’s too late.

I would like to end this entry with this:

Love should be a verb and not a noun. It should be felt AND heard.

Stay in love guys!<3

Boom Boom Boom 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

My 23rd Birthday

Just celebrated my 23rd birthday recently and it was Ah-mazing! Celebrated it with some of my closest friends and family. Received these wonderful gifts so I decided to style them and take some photos.

  • A bouquet of sunflower (the only flower I like)
  • Lime Rebel Swatch watch
  • Oversized shirt dress and
  • Something Blue, an Emily Giffin book
Sunflower

I made the light board at the background. Basically you just need a board (I wrapped mine with coloured crepe paper), scissors and fairy/Christmas lights. Then just poke holes and attach the lights. So easy to make but very pretty. 🙂

Thanks a bunch for these!

Playing with Holga

I got a Holga 120GCFN as a Christmas present from my sister. But it took me quite some time before having the films developed. I had a hard time composing my shots properly as the viewfinder is really no use at all. LOL

Here are some of the shots:

Randy & Marie

It was my first time to shoot for a wedding. At first I was really nervous, but as the day go on I got more comfortable shooting the couple and the people who attended the special event. Here are some of the shots I took.:)

Prepping up for the big day! All are excited and giddy.

Marie, with her beautiful mom. See the resemblance?:)

The rings, can you spot the heart there?

The much awaited kiss, and they are now officially husband and wife.

The venue for the reception was the same as where the wedding ceremony was held. The couple are now slicing their cake.
