No plans for me but friends came and kidnapped me to go with them for adventure. They chose Lucban, Quezon. On our way today we passed by Fernbrook. Off we went down to take photos of this picturesque place. Their is a mass ongoing when we arrived there. We are on a hurry to Lucban so we opted to just take our precious time for some snaps. There you go!

Manila by today is cleaner (read: no traffic less pollution). I guessed, many are happy in the sense that motorists has less stress but again, seems everyone is somewhere for this long weekend. Rather than staying in the house, better wander into some place that emanates positivity this Holy Week.

In a few hours, Holy Thursday will commenced. What are your plans, my dears? Whatever it is, kindly take time to stop and pray for the atonement of one's sins. A little re-assessments won't hurt. As far as I can remember, Holy Week was solemn and indeed holy back then, say, 20 years ago. These days, it was the reverse. What used to be holy, now is spent somewhere for fun. I guessed, this is also a time where mostly members of the family, aside from Christmas, is coming home. Normally, bonding is never far behind. And that spells fun: beach, picnic etc.
For some, doing together the "station of the cross" is obligatory. I remember I am itching my way that the "station" will come to a close any sooner when my family did it together years ago. It seems to me doing it is so laborious ( even though I just stand there and followed them) and not having a relevance in me. As if it was the longest time of my life spent. These days, it has some otherwise a "holy" effect in me. Holy Week would not passes by without doing the sacred thing. And more than holy enough if done accordingly with every family. As the saying goes, a family that prays together, bonds. This is once a year, folks. Once a year (I sounded like my foster mom here, HAHAHA).
So whatever will be the plans, do take time to pay respect before hitting the fun button. After all, Holy Week is holy, indeed.
Light and Love.

Yes, finally! I did get what I wanted and wished for. I am in for a treat this weekend. More of this story in my future posts, my dears.
In the meantime, let' s talk about being happy in many ways possible. Through the years, I have been into my lowest of low to the highest of high but seems along the way, their is that "craving" for the ultimate happiness which until this time, seems I have in one way, found it. Not so grand ( expensive things, duh!) but little things in life but fulfilling. I wanna share you these things which does not cost an arm and leg but by just being " you".
For one, be happy for your existence. Being alive is the best gift to us more than any material things we acquired. To see the beauty of the place we moved around is a gift itself. I guess it is not a very good idea if your blind today. But by seeing the beauty of nature this world gave is really is the wondrous thing to our lives. How about our health. Being in the pink of it is a big, great thing. Think of someone who is sick or who is battling with cancer. Yes, health is wealth and that is true. Although, my mom and only sister died of the big C, this does not prompt me to sulk and think negatively about it. What I did is staying away from stress and meat in the most possible ways. It is a struggle, though. I did not cut meat overnight. It took me months to resolve the habit. I felt light and healthier in the process. One bonus, I became sexier ( read: from L to S size ).
In any case, be happy of the little things in life. A kiss from your daughter/son is the best perk-me-up situation ever. Say I love you when you can. Life is short, after all. Bond with friends more often. They will color our lives. We can openly say anything towards our friends without the guilt-feeling. But be choosy with your friends just the same. They are there when you need a a comfort. A hug. And most of all, they will support your being nerdy and crazy at times. Right?
There you go, very easy. It is different approach between you and me, though, but again, essential to lead a stress-free life. But again, you are the captain of your heart and mind. One at a time. Why not? Good luck!
Well, today is another day but would not passes-by without my obligatory outfit shoot. HAHAHA. I guess you noticed my linen blouse is crumpled. When it's crumpled, it has this character. So just enjoy the ride and not be conscious being in that state. After all, it is the attitude not the outfit that sealed the order of the day.
Light and Love.

The week starts with boundless energy. Starting from work and plannings for Holy Week. We forgot the time and voila! we are still working on it while picking- up coffee in between. It is a fight between Bataan and Puerto Galera. Personally, I prefer the latter. Seems a touristy spot this late and I've heard of its renovations which makes it more exciting of what is waiting then. I believed everyone is in for it as well. Yay! Can't wait till the Holy Week formally kicked off.
No work for 4 days and being lazy is somewhat obligatory, HAHAHA. Thanks God their is a week being "holy" indeed.
Light and Love.

The art of waking-up early and doing the shoot as possible. HAHAHA. Thanks to King who obliged to do my morning tantrums ( read: desires of my lazy mind). The garden of my friend's condo serves the best venue and I guessed it looks good as well with the photos. I hope so. Anyway, today is a pleated pants day, HAHAHA. Guess what, the flowy cut is making a statement. Plus, the prints. Closer, it's an amalgam of opulence prints. Yay!
Saturday is still a working day for me. Typical day to kick-ass for the job I love. More than anything else, merchandising really is my life apart from designing clothes. Well, I love the former but both equates the same these days since Mango bug bit me years ago. In fact, seems I am still very much into fashion since then.
Light and Love.
