This photoset was taken last April, I think. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Outtake from Kim’s pre-debut last saturday. 
Kim Ablir is one of my closest friends when I was in high school. And last saturday was one of the most successful shoots I had.
I’ll be posting more of her this week.
BTW, not a lot of people can pull-off this pose!

Nagsasa, Zambales Day 1

After my inactivity in my social media accounts for a whole week, here I am coming out from my cave. I’m still lazy though so no edits for this post, all straight from the camera.

(obligatory friendship shot)

Last week, I went on an incredible roadtrip with my friends from High School to celebrate Corrina’s coming of age(One month early). Since it was Ina’s celebration we were with one of her college friends, Meli! And Chelseah (Ane’s sister)

As it wasn’t really popular in my group of friends to have debuts, Ina chose to treat us to an adventure instead.

One magical thing happened actually. No one was late at our rendezvous at 1am in the morning.

image

On our way to Manila, our van overheated so we had to stay in the coastal area to wait for the new van ugh. 

image

All we did on our way was talk. Seriously, our barkada don’t really talk to each other in the cyberspace so when we do see each other, we talk non-stop.

And of course, there’s always a part where I sleep. It’s mandatory. =))

image

image

We went island hopping after Ina’s parents bought supplies. 

image

Just look at how clear the water is!

image

We had to go through some rocks (picture below) before reaching this ^ place.

Plus I had to remove my camera filter because it was fogging up.

image

We went to one more island before going to Nagsasa where we would set up our camp and stay overnight. (I was asleep on our way. hehe I realized I’m not really into boats.)

image

Yey beach! I’ll get to the camp later. We were excited to swim. Here’s Aneliese one of my best friends who also studies in UPM. Haha

After taking a lot of pictures, most of my friends went back to our camp to sleep. And Donna, Chelseah, Ina and I were the only ones left (Hence, we had sun burn. Worth it). 

Now here comes the adventure.

image

It was said that there was a waterfall on the mountains. So it begins our journey guided by two Aetas, Mark and what was his name? I’m not really good with names. They said it was a thirty minute walk. Oh they are so wrong.

image

Phase 1, tall grasses. I was really excited and took lots of pictures at first.

image

image

image

image

And then it was getting tiresome. And I’ve said this a dozen times already, but it felt like walking to Mordor and going through that whole Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

We kept walking and walking

image

image

And we’re still not there. Ugh.

image

image

image

And when we think we’re close, we find a new, harder, phase. I’ll post more photos on a separate blog post because this is already bloody long.

Long story short, we got to the place in an hour, I think? An effing hour of walking, no water, rocks and heat. And what have we found?

image

A dried waterfall. Well as they say, “Endings are usually sad, but its the middle that counts the most.”

I refreshed with water just to cool my body.

image

The way back was easier because we already knew what kind of journey it is.

image

After an hour of walking again, finally we got back to the camp as soon as the sun was about to set! And bless Areeya and Shane who got left behind and cooked dinner for us yey!

image

image

And we enjoyed roasted marshmallows, hotdogs and drinks while exchanging stories at the end of the day.

image

PS: we slept early because we had no sleep in the previous night and I had half of my body in the tent and on the sand.


Chateau Hestia

As few of my friends know, I have been indulging myself with my reading. (Hence, my absence for the past days)

Last Sunday, my friend from High School, Kamyle asked me if I could take pictures of her for her debut. And as you can conclude, this wasn’t a problem at all since I have been bumming all week since my vacation started. (I’m not complaining.) And I wanted to go out and take pictures!

We went to this place called Chateau Hestia in the midst of upland Cavite. If you have been reading my blog, it’s the first time I’m doing a review for a place so bear with me as I try.

As you can see, the place is really cozy and fancy. It’s quiet and there’s not a lot of people to share the building with. Kamyle’s mom told me that she saw the place through instagram. And God, she wasn’t kidding when she said it was far.

But the beauty of the place was a great compromise.

What you are seeing in these photos is the restaurant. It serves mainly italian food, I think?

We asked for their specialty so we wouldn’t order the not-so-good ones.

Pizza looked nice and they allow us to get two flavors in one pizza. We ordered Reale and Say Cheese!

And of course, the classic Carbonara.

And for our drinks Kamyle ordered Buko and her mother and I, the awesome strawberry shake!

I think this is the best strawberry shake I had in a restaurant ever. It was all-natural not like the ones that was made out of pink powder. This one was made out of real strawberries put into and electronic mixer with shaved ice and *angels sing*. I may be overrating but natural drinks nowadays are as endangered as pandas.

Anyway, service was great! And we even get this bread with pesto sauce(I think?)

Service: 5/5 I’m sure there’s service charge!

Price: 4/5 (I think food is quite pricey but given the quality of the place I think we’re paying the right amount.) 

Place: 5/5 It’s far but it’s really worth it!

Thank you Kamyle and Tita Jasmin for the food and opportunity to take pictures!! Until next time!

More reviews to come in the next posts! I’m not in the best position to recommend places because I’m really easy to please. haha

Photos of Kamyle to come up.


To a boy I’m supposed to meet

I know that you never get the person you pictured to meet and fall in love with, but I think you get the whole point of me writing this 

I’m writing because I like the idea of meeting you

I imagine your perfect set of teeth because of some years of your life having metal brackets placed on them. 

I imagine myself ranting about the missing characters on the movie adaptations of my science fiction books, and you would argue the fact that the movie industry is hugely different from literary.
I could see us arguing about our busy schedules and landing on a compromise because there is no point of debating.
