Day 16 to Day 21

Day 16: Something Old

a few hand-me-downs and others


The books were previously owned by my dad: Le Corbusier 1910 – 65, Architectural Graphic Standards 6th edition, and Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World.

Some toys I had from when I was a kid: jackstones and glow-in-the-dark T-Rex.

 
Day 17: Inspiring


Meet my first few favorite, somewhat cliché, /idol architects: I.M. Pei, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier. Okay… so maybe that little book is not really about Wright… haha. But he was the one who designed the structure on the cover. ^^;

The Little Prince of Antoine de Saint Exupéry also is one of my all time favorite book. The book is simple and easy to read, but the messages are really moving. 🙂

 
Day 18: Black &White

coincidence


This was not on purpose…. But, I wore mostly black and white last Sunday. The only teeny pops of colors were my earrings, anklet, and necklace. In truth, I forgot to consult my notebook for the 18th day challenge ^^;

My everyday clothes are t-shirts and shorts/pants (for work). If I thought my shirt was plain. I would don on a necklace. The usual accessories I wear are a watch, earrings, hair ties, eyeglasses; additional accessories on weekends: a bracelet and anklet. As for footwear, I usually wear ballet flats or sneakers. But, I sometimes wear heels on Sundays. =)

 
Day 19: Clouds

up in the sky


Okay… So this was an old photo….

 
Day 20: Trees

also an old photo


Yongdusan Park, Busan.

 
Day 21: In Motion

again, also an old photo


Cheonggyecheon, Seoul

Intersting fact about Cheonggyechen: The creek was once covered up because of its deteriorating conditions. It was heavily traffic, very much similar to EDSA I think, or even worse. In 2003, they removed the elevated highway which caused several disagreements with the locals. Many protested, but the revival of the stream still proceeded. Now, it serves as a recreation area for the people and a tourist destination. It is also a date destination for couples. Lol. But, what intrigued me the most was that Cheonggyecheon also serve as a catch basin for heavy rain falls! So, Philippines, when will we ‘get one of those?’
