04042014 MMA Festival

My friend Bianca saw this event on facebook and asked us if we want to come. And if you know me personally, you'll notice that I just want to try everything, go anywhere and attend every event as long as I have money. Even though I'm on my summer vacation right now, I luckily saved enough money for a one last gala haha!

So I said yes and also asked my adventure buddies Lea & Mina to come.

<--- (L-R) Bianca, Lea & Mina

The first speaker was THE Jason Magbanua. Yes, he's the one who covered Drew & Iya's wedding! He's really good with his job and can I say that he talks really well too. He also said that he has an intern right now, huhu I want that experience too in the future!

He was followed by Dee Jae Paeste. Remember the colorful paintings around High Street and at SM North Edsa's skydome? Well, he's the one behind those amazing artworks.

After the two speakers, we decided to look around the venue. There were a lot of really cool works & designs!

My friends took a lot of the artists' calling cards to check more of their works online. Ahhh we really are suckers for anything inspiring <3

More of these events please!

Here's my final plate (conceptual) for our Photography class. Location: Quezon City Memorial Circle. Models: Lea De Ramos and Bianca Edwards

One of the photos above made it to "Best Photography 2 plates" for this year, uploaded by our professor. Well, I want to shoot more portraits in the future so I'm hoping there'll be many opportunities like this. :)

There's Always A First Time

After almost 4 months of inactivity, I got a new laptop and I’m here to catch up with all the blogs I missed. And since I’ve been out for months, I’d like to list down all the highlights of my year so far in this entry. It’s not even the half of the year but I already feel so blessed and I hope this will continue until, maybe, forever? Hahaha

Heavy text and photo post ahead!


WE EXPLORED THE PROVINCE OF RIZAL IN ONE DAY. We have this “travel” plate for photography class so we decided to go explore some new place. Luckily, one of my block mates invited us to join them in touring around Rizal. We went from Binangonan, Cardona, Morong, Tanay & Baras to Antipolo City. I can’t believe that we were able to visit 5 historical churches, farm, parks, climbed a lighthouse and rode a small boat! Too bad all the photos were in my old laptop that died but I saved some for my photography plates. 

JOINED MY FIRST EVER FUN RUN. And also, it was a run for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.

GOT MY 50MM “DREAM” LENS. I’ve been eyeing this lens for years already because of its bokehlicious f1.8 aperture and continuously trying but failing to save money to buy one. Actually, I did saved some but it was not enough but thankfully my parents shouldered the remaining! My 50mm lens rarely leaves my camera now hahaha --> Photo from Bianca

CHINESE NEW YEAR PHOTOWALK WITH MY FRIENDS. It was my first time in Binondo (Chinatown) and I thought I became a chinese girl even just for a day hahaha. So we technically celebrated Chinese New Year there, tried the famous fried siopao and took lots of photos. It was also my first time to go photowalk-ing with only Leah & Mina but I’m so happy ‘cause we have almost-exactly the same interests.
