SEMBREAK'S END

November 2, 2013

After days and nights of having good night sleep and waking up late in the morning, I therefore conclude that I got a well deserved rest. But now that it's already November, I guess its time to face the fact that sembreak is finally over (*sniff.sniff* ). But hey, school is back. And I bet the 2nd semester would be as amazing as the 1st. Not to mention lesser number of units (from 30 to 25, Yeay!) and better class schedules.

But before I finally bid goodbye to sembreak, here are a few photos of thyself during our self-proclaimed friendship day bonding with the Tois. hehe. Credits to Piper who took these photos.

ARKI TRIP

October 20, 2013

 As an Arki student it is important that you know the different local churches that you have. 
It was only in this trip that I got to visit and know other local historical churches which has been well-preserved by many Ilonggos.
As part of our requirements for our midterm in one of our subjects, which is Theory of Design. We were
required to pass a research and reaction paper on three different churches; Molo, Tigbauan and Miag-ao church. But because some of us (especially me) haven't seen a particular church on the list, We  decided
and prepared a trip to tigbauan and miag-ao.




















The first stop is Tigbauan Church, This is how it looks like in the inside. I only have 
the interior photos, I don't know where the others went. hehe. peace. 


What I really love the most is its mosaic walls, which is made up of colorful stone murals. Amazing
how people a long time ago made and designed such magnificent churches. They're indeed true artists and great architects.

After learning so much from the rich history Tigbauan church, Since we still had a lot of time to spare
we had a quick stop in SEAFDEC(Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center).





























After that, On our way to Miag-ao, I got to see and took a picture of Guimbal church.  We ate lunch at sulu garden then went to the famous Miag-ao church. There's a belief that when you get to visit a church for the first time you can have a wish and it will come true. Since it was my first time and because I believe in wishes that comes true, I did make a wish.hahaha 

I got awestrucked the moment I saw the facade and the amazing intricate designs of Miag-ao church. Which is described as the finest example of Fortress Baroque Church.

And that was it,  but we all know a trip won't be complete without group pictures. This is one of 
my favorite shots I saw in my camera, others were uploaded via facebook. If you want you can see them in my fb account photos. 
I learned a lot and even had fun during the trip, Architecture always has a way to amaze and
continue to inspire me in reaching my goal. I hope it does the same way to you too.

Have a good evening everyone! :)

We all know that during chinese celebrations, like birthdays. Chinese People often wear red. 
Which is already a dress code etiquette and is very traditional. Not only to chinese, but also
to many others around the globe.  I was invited by my best friend Hazel(Chinese) to a birthday party
one day and was told that I have to wear anything red.  But sadly couldn't find one in my closet 
until I saw this orange floral dress and decided to wear it 
instead which was btw also okay to wear according to Hazel. ;)

So here's my outfit during the party. I was being my matchy-matchy self that time
and paired it with orange sandals. haha.

Final Output

May 30, 2013


Hey everyone! This summer I was enrolled on a graphic arts class, 
If you visit my instagram often you would know what we do during class. 
which is to edit, create, design and edit again.with the use of adobe photoshop cs6. 
No, I can't call myself a pro yet. I still have a lot to learn.
but I guess I knew a few tricks and shortcuts.hehe

We needed photos for our final output, So our graphic arts teacher/photographer 
decided that we will be editing a picture of ourselves and prepared a photoshoot for our class.
 Here are some of my  unedited shots. Some I chose not to post because they were the
 ones that I picked for my final output. Don't worry, I'll blog about it soon. :)

How to make your own flower crown

May 25, 2013

Hello Everyone! Here's my first ever DIY post. Yeay! 
I have been planning to make a blog post about this for a month already. 
Since flower crowns is all the rage these days, and I know lots of you want to have your own.
 So here I'm gonna show you how to make your own flower crown.

You will need:
1. Fake flowers   2. Glue gun & glue sticks  3. Pliers  4. Floral tape 5. Scissors  6. Floral Wires

So first, you need to take the floral wires and measure it to the width of your head.

Take 3 strips of your measured wires and then braid them all together.
After your'e done with that, measure it again to the size of your head. 

and fasten them with the use of your pliers


It should look something similar to this

Next, make sure that there's no pointed wires that will poke in your head.
So you need to take the floral tape and wrap it around those wires.

Then take your fake flowers. You'll see that there's a little bit of stem on the flower, with the use
of your scissors/ pliers just cut it off.

Then, take your fake flowers again and set them out with a desired pattern. 
After your done, take your glue gun and dab a glue right in center of the bottom of the flower and
then press it on to the wire.

and just keep on doing that with the pattern of flowers that you've set out.
Tip: It's nice if you could put leaves on your flower crown.

and then you're done.
Taraa! Here it is. My flower crown *insert super huge grin here*

I also made a thinner flower crown. hehe. which you might have already seen on my instagram
photo teaser about this blog post. I know that there's a lot of methods 
and tutorials on how to make flowers crowns, here's how I made mine. 
Its fast, easy and definitely fun. 

P.S If you tried and made one with this tutorial
don't forget to email me a picture of your beautiful flower crown.
I would be happy to see it and maybe make a blog post
of your DIY flower crowns.
