Portrait Sessions Vol. IV | friends & dating?

It has been a while.

I missed blogging. I missed taking photos. I missed pouring out my creative juices on this canvass.

Anyway,

I really feel like I want to share something with you.


October 1st

We planned ahead of our trip. But it was sudden. I impulsively booked an Airbnb for Pauline and I, simply because we wanted to get away. Somewhere far, and some place where we could talk about life and catch up. A few days before our trip, Pauline’s high school friend, Gelo, joined us as well. I always wanted to hang out with Gelo, ’cause Pau told me about her a lot. She likes bands too, and she’s got good aesthetics.

The day came, and the weather was good, it was bright and sunny outside when we left Manila. We bought beers and soju before dropping off to La Bella when the sky had a temper and it drizzled for a few hours. When we got there, we fixed our stuff and rested for a while before we went outside for our shoot.

Hello Gelo

Gelo has been a friend of Pauline since high school and I’ve heard about her since. Pauline wanted us to meet for the longest time but we didn’t have the chance to meet earlier, but we occasionally talk over Twitter that’s why it wasn’t really awkward when I got to meet her for the first time.

Bees-ness

There’s a deeper reason why the three of us wanted to hang out together– to talk about boys. A few weeks before our trip, we were on a dating app and we were talking about the boys we’ve been talking to, and we just can’t contain all the funny stories, cringe-worthy moments and kilig stuff that we have experienced from there.

During that time, I was talking to someone already but he was giving me mixed signals that even girls can’t understand. The thing about online dating is, you really can’t expect anyone to be serious. People come and go easily.

Well, maybe not everyone. Maybe, some are meant to stay. Hopefully.

my thoughts are so messed up.

Hope you liked the photo set though.

Portrait Sessions Vol. III | family & stories

Hello friends!

It’s been a while. I kind of forgot how to make introductions and how to keep all of you entertained while reading my blog and scanning the photos I’m gunna be showing you. Since I’m having extreme writer’s block, thought it would be nice to go straight into it. Haha

Well, hello family. 😉

It was November 25, 2017, my Daddy’s 63rd birthday, and we went to Antipolo to visit the church of Our Lady of Good Voyage . But unfortunately, there were no available mass when we got there so we just prayed the rosary instead. Since it was almost lunch time, they just bought a bucket of chicken, took it out and ate it with our baon (we brought rice and spaghetti that we cooked at home). We enjoyed the meal at the back of our van.

[ We’re THAT kind of family. We like to bring baon Continue reading Portrait Sessions Vol. III | family & stories

I found some cringey old photos of me

While I was thinking for new blog post ideas, I came across a folder on my laptop. It was a file storage of my photos back in 2013 when I first got my iPod touch 5. I found some cringe-worthy photos of me and other photos which I find very funny and made me feel nostalgic. And since it’s also Thursday, might as well do a little throwback.


The birthday surprise

hdas

It was February (2013), We had classes during my birthday and my college friends surprised me with a box full of cupcakes with toppers which has pictures of my favorite band dudes. I was really in shock when they gave this to me, especially when they chipped in money to buy me an All Time Low Straight to DVD! That was so sweet of them. Aww.


That creepy girl

cdjk

(Left) My very first plane ride. Nothing much, but you can see through me how excited I was at that moment. Pure bliss. LOL.

(Right) While we were cleaning at home, we found Mom’s wedding dress! It was all lacey and it looked really conservative. So I tried to fit the whole thing, including the veil. It looked really creepy on me, I don’t know why. I have a scary picture with this dress but might as well not post it here or I might scare y’all away. Haha


Meeting my favorite band

sdsc

I met my favorite band, A Rocket to the Moon! It was during their very last show here in Manila (because the band has split up), and I was so happy to finally meet them up close! I got a hug from everyone, but the most memorable was my hug with Halvo (Eric Halvorsen, bassist). I even had a selfie with him. He’s so cute! Me? Meh.


Rainbow head

sdasda;

I tried on different hair colors during college, I started off with Atomic Turquoise, then Blonde, and finally, Lavender Blue. My parents were really against it, but being the rebel kid that I was, I still dyed my hair. Looking back, I feel proud that I managed to pull this off even just for a short time. 🙂


Crazy friends

skdc

We are Bahamas. But before we get to the part where I explain why we’re called Bahamas, I’ll first talk about why we all ended up being friends. Back in college (up to now), we really love listening to different bands, and because we love them, of course we also love the band guys. And we always have fangirl moments (fan fictions with the band guys LOL). Bahamas = watery/wet. IYKWIM.


Once a grumpy kid, always a grumpy kid

dcnbsl

The ultimate throwback.

(Left) Mom told me I was having tantrums at that moment. I didn’t ask why I was having tantrums but I always find this picture funny.

(Right) Mom, Dad and I on the beach. I can still recall why I look so grumpy here. I was asking my Dad to ride the boat with me but he didn’t want to so I was really upset and I looked like this until we got home from the beach. Heh what a brat.


Since I wasn’t really sure of what to post on my blog, I ended up with this. But, this was fun! I was laughing the entire time while I was browsing through my old photos.

I also want to see some of your old photos and the stories behind those too!

Thank you for reading! 🙂
