“Too often I find myself lost in a sea of endless thoughts…Caught between pure bliss and despair…Stuck in a moment of confusion, doubt and illusions..Someday…Somehow…I’ll get through.”
-inside my frantic mind
Summer lovin’ <3
“I wish I could embrace summer and never let it go. I wish I didn’t have to wake up early to leave the house and go to work only to sit in the same chair for hours and use the laptop until my eyes become so sore. I wish I didn’t have to say all that if only I knew what it is I really wanted.”
Summer will have to wait. No regrets, just lessons. :)
Isn’t it wonderful how the waters wave to say hello? And how the daylight slowly creeps in to unfold a glorious sunrise?
So many of the beautiful things in life are right outside your door. :)
It’s over but why am I still holding on?
So many thoughts in my mind right now. The kind of thoughts that leave me curious to know, “What if?”
I feel like I’ve been drifting for too long. What if I’m just walking in circles?
Hello blog! :)
I missed you..but what can I do? Midterms and plates ate a big chunk of my spare time. Been so busy lately. Haven’t slept well in weeks too thanks to my forever arch nemesis, insomnia.I hate that foe. Seriously.
I’m just glad midterms week is over. One less hectic week for the semester and then back to reality once more. Ill just make the most out of my free days like today by simply sleeping & checking up on my little diary, this blog. :)
I hope I can have the time to blog about all the things that transpired in the last weeks that I haven’t posted. There’s been a lot going on in my silly life. You’ll be amazed to see most of my student life in the pages of my unpublished diary. I tell you school has reached the top spot in conquering my life. LOL but I’m not complaining. I love school. No, this isn’t sarcasm.
I’ve learned so much through the course of this midterm week. I’ve made things I never thought I could do and got things I never wished for. Although it wasn’t as perfect as planned, I’m still thankful for all the mistakes I’ve committed. It taught me lessons learned the hard way. Thus, I never ever forget them.
I can’t wait to share all my plates here especially animation. It’s the subject I dreaded the most. It just too depressing to pass crappy drawings especially when you know that’s all you can give. I never thought I’d finish it or at most make it move. I thank God for never failing me and for continuously providing me with more than what I deserve. :)
All the pressure and deadlines can never break me because if my problems are big, my God is bigger. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas Lord :)
Have an awesome week ahead every one! :)
Annual Christmas Reunion with relatives at the beach!
It’s Christmas Time!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!! :)
It’s my favorite time of the year! Everything seems so wonderful during the holiday season! Beautiful decorations, yummy (sometimes excess) food, friends, family and all that jazz define the beauty of Christmas! :)
Before the Christmas break, we were tasked to create an ad for Starbucks Holiday Drinks! Yum! And this is what I made. :)
This ad is centered on connecting the drinks with the joy and warmth of the Christmas season.
My message statement is: Starbucks Holiday drinks create special moments with friends & family. Christmas after all is all about the love, hope and the joy we give to other people. :)
Aaaand I also made another ad!! But upon submission, I figured the other one was more clean so I decided not to pass this. This was the first study I made! :)
I can’t help it, I just adore Santaaa! See previous post for reference! hihi
In a few hours, the sky will reveal wonders and colors I have always loved! Fireworks!! YAY Buuut I hope despite all the distractions there is, let’s all take a moment to greet the celebrant today…Jesus, Happy Birthday! :)
And to everyone, I wish you a happy and meaningful Christmas!!! Happy Holidays! :)
Through the Years!
What a lame title! haha But there’s no better way to say it than that! :)
It’s been 5 years since I made the best decision of my life. And I’m so happy I stood by it even when a lot of people disagreed. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out when you know it’s gonna be worth it. ;)
Quick lunch @ 30 kitchen! Both of us still got classes at 1:30PM!
The mushroom soup is to die foooor! I love it! A definite must try! :D
Hihi I couldn’t get enough of the soup! LOL you know me, I get happy over small things! haha
This is my meal! Chicken Pesto :) I didn’t order rice meal coz I was in a “diet” but then I realized this has more carbs than a regular meal. LOL But whatever, the flavor is pretty good and the serving size is quite big. I only finished eating half :D
And this is Kevin’s order! It’s bacon strips in bbq sauce if I’m not mistaken. It was tasty but too fatty. If you’re not on a “diet” this a perfect meal for you. ;)
Ate dessert @ La Marea! Warm brownie cup is <3.
And then after classes, we went to Ayala to chill. We figured it was necessary to eat ice cream coz it’s our anniversary so we went to Gelatissimo! I got the usual, biscotinno and kevin was again experimental and ordered a new flavor, white chocolate something. It was good but not as good as mine. haha!
And there goes another year filled with sugar, spice and everything nice!
Many more years to come, You and Me always <3
Happy birthday to my one and only favorite sister in the whole wide universe, Vera!
She just turned fifteen last Friday. Coincidentally, she was chosen to be part of an activity in school where they get to wear that pink dress on her birthday. Me & mom skipped our morning class/work to show our support to Gummy Bears. I did her hair & make up while mom gave her uhmm moral support? Yep that’s the word.
Pictorials after the show.
Mom & Vera outside their gym.
And of course the birthday girl with yours truly :)
How time flies! Our little girl is slowly turning into a fine lady. :)
Ahhh the weird things you do when you’re bored!
Photo H&MUA by yours truly!
Don’t judge :D
The last photo creeps me out too!
Hi! This is one of our Art Direction Plate. We were tasked to design a packaging for a consumer product and brand of our choice. We also need to create a physical mock-up of the design we will be making in actual size.
I don’t know whats gotten into me that I chose to make a package for Trolli Gloworms. I had so many things in mind (cute girly stuffs) but in the end, I made this. Crazy weird. I don’t even like/eat Trolli. :D
So anyway, Here’s my output :)
My concept for Trolli was all about Medusa. Since Trolli is a product that sells gummy worms, I figured it would be neat if the worms had a queen. And what better queen for them than Medusa, right? Only this time, she’s no queen of snakes anymore, just plain o’l gloworms!
The template I made for the box! Made a bunch of mock-ups before I got it right!
I’m so happy it turned out the way I wanted it to be. It’s my 1st time making anything like this so pardon the lack of creativity in terms of the box. :)
Happy Sunday friends! :)
One of the pages in my colorful portfolio for art direction! It’s all about meee! WARNING: It’s not that interesting. Nothing to be curious about. heee :)

Hello! Meet my friends! :)
Sy, Joy, Rachel, ME and Zach
We had a long list of plans that day but unfortunately almost none of it happened! :D We were supposed to get a full body massage somewhere in mango but we arrived in the city very late already. And then there’s this photo shoot for Rachel we were planning but it was late afternoon and the sun was out. :’( Blame showtime anniversary special! hehe Too bad, I really want to try the massage! :D
So anyway, we made revisions to our plans and decided to get a drink @ Chatime! It’s a very cute and pink cafe located at IT Park!
Weee our drinks! My order (not in the photo) was chocolate mousse with coffee jelly! Love it! So far that’s my favorite. I’ve tried their pearl milk tea and wintermelon mousse but sadly, I’m not a fan of it. It’s not sweet enough for me. This one is really a must-try! :D
Meet Sy and Rachel! Rachel was our supposed model for the day but due to unforeseeable events, I took only one
good shot of her. I hope we can have a photoshoot before sembreak ends. *fingers crossed*
Meet Joy! My chicka buddy, super friend, laugh trip partner, sometimes chaperon and playmate ever since HS! She always brings out the kid in me. One of the reasons why I think immaturity is awesome! She makes it look so cool to be juvenile! :)
And then there’s Kevin! My forever chaperon! :)
And how could we forget Lara? She’s in MNL right now working as an actress! haha We left a space for you Lars! That’s how much we love you. Awwwwwee <3
Till next time girls! Highs school friends are just the best! :)
My bestfriend’s top secret wedding! I knew about it the night before the wedding! That’s how “top secret” it is…or maybe I was just too busy making plates. Anyways, I wish both of them happiness and love. :)
Wow, I still can’t believe it!!!!
The couple: Roselyn and Allen
MS (Moral Support): Karen
Photographer: Yours truly <3
