Lunar Halo


I have only read randomly about this a few months ago, and I can’t believe I’m seeing one live! =)

:*:・( ̄∀ ̄)・:*:



One of many sunrises


This was from our strict budget weekend trip last month with officemates and others. We went to Real, Quezon to surf~! It was a short vacation but encountered many hilarious circumstances. We still crack up whenever we talk about the situations we ran into during this trip.

For other details about this trip, I have wrote all about it at foodietraveller and bliss. =)



One of many sunsets


This is still from our last out of town trip. The waves are tamer at this side of Luzon, good for beginner surfers. =) The waves are more aggressive/frequent/fairly bigger at the East side, since it’s already the Pacific Ocean.

But… the first time I tried to surf was at Baler. I had a mild headache after being thrashed around by the waves.. o_o; It was still a lot of fun though =D



Night Sky


One of my favorite things to shoot is the night sky. I tried with a digicam a few years ago..here and here. I thought it was good for a digicam..

Anyway, When I had held my new camera for the first time, I was excited for our annual Holy Week Trip! I knew we were going to the beach, I was really hoping that the vicinity of San Juan, La Union wouldn’t be flooded by so many lights. The area we stayed at, Final Option, didn’t! =D But.. it was the full moon =( It was shining exceptionally bright. Maybe because of the lack of artificial lights.

The first night wasn’t successful, but the second, which resulted to this, was quite alright. The moon hasn’t risen yet. Need to practice more.

This month, I will be going to the East side of Luzon: Real, Quezon and Baler, Aurora. I’m especially excited for Real, because of the meteor shower! I’m hoping that we’ll be able to catch even a glimpse of them. ^_-;





I kind of understand now why people love to go to Boracay. 🙂 Pictures can’t justify how pretty the island is. The colors are also vibrant in any time of the day!

I recommend going there during lean seasons (end of May to October) though! Especially if the purpose of going to Boracay is to relax. The pathway during those times is almost packed. Just imagine how crowded it would be during peaks! (@_@)

Oh, by the way, I think I know what sport I want to try next: Kiteboarding! XD …I have to fix on my non-existent wakeboarding and surfing skills first. o__o;

彩虹 (Cǎihóng): rainbow


This was shot last Friday afternoon from the office window. The weather is unpredictable. One minute it’s hot and unbearable, the next raining hard. Then later, sunny again. =\ ohwell.

It has been a long since I last saw a rainbow. =) It gave me fuzzy feelings. ^^

~( ´u`)~


Natural Infinity Pool


A few blockmates and I went up north to the mountains last weekend! Sagada is very beautiful! We went trekking/hiking/climbing/semi-crawling to Pongas Falls. This is the view that will greet you from the small basin under the waterfall. I guess this is where the idea of infinity pools came from. =)

Isn’t it pretty? Despite the many major obstacles going there, the sites around you made up for it. They were breathtakingly stunning! I would LOVE to go back to Sagada, but I would prefer not going back to the falls. XD

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


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?’


Day 13 to Day 15

Day 13: Technology

Simple ‘Machines’ or what not

When one mentions technology, words like gadgets, video game consoles, personal computers, automobiles, etc. immediately pops up. Well, I thought I’d post something differently.

Some things that we take for granted: fabrics, watches, tapes, glues, lenses, papers, standard measuring materials. =)

Day 14: 5 Facts

1) Chinese zodiac sign: Dragon (龍)

2) My initials are E.V.O.L.; L meaning Lim. I reversed it: milove. It sounded like my love, so I removed the V. Hence; miloe 🙂 (fun fact: my 2 sisters’ initials are also e.v.o.l ^^ E from dad’s first name, V from mom’s :))

3) I love unruled notebooks ♥ It’s where I put my schedules, ideas, doodles, etc.

4) I also adore writing materials. Whenever we travel, I can’t leave my notebook and pens/pencils. ♥

5) My family sometimes calls me a camel. This is because I can’t be seen without my water jar/bottle, especially at home. Haha. I love drinking water, but not an aquaholic.I like it lukewarm than cold.

Day 15: Sky

sunset funset

Initially, I thought of taking the sky photo from the reflection of a puddle of water. It didn’t rain yesterday; but while walking to the main road, this site greeted me. It was soooo pretty! The vivid colors were like a reverse flame— the bluish hue at the top fading to violet, pink, red orange, yellow. The giant ball of fire, reflecting on glass curtains casting a red orange glow to the city. A rare site in the metro. 🙂


Day 9 to Day 12

La-la-la-la catching up yet again~~~

DAY 9: Flowers


My only décor here in my cubicle at work. A few more days left before moving to another office~~~ 🙂

Day 9: What I am wearing (more like what I wore)

Saturday chill day

Last Saturday was quite uneventful. Just went to the salon to have my hair trimmed (for the Chinese New Year~~!) and try that hair treatment. Hair treatment seems fine. O_o Might have it treated again after holy week. 🙂

This t-shirt is one of my favorites! The shirt was originally just for guys, but I love the design! I mean, look! It’s the Parthenon! XD Dad bought the Great Wall of China. 😀 ooh~! Couple shirts~! lol =))

DAY 10: Faceless Self-Portrait


Okay, so this is obviously not me lol. But I thought it was too cute to ignore. ^^;

DAY 12: Scene from a window


This is what I see everyday going home from work: lots of cars. …Do they have a term for a group of cars? ..A pollution of cars?

That tall classical building is actually a funeral home. ^^; The name of the establishment is Sanctuarium. Kind of grand for a funeral home, ey? I don’t know why they put funeral homes along that road. Yes, there are others more.
