Status: Complete


So I finally finished working on my photo book yesterday and should be getting it by next week. I CAN NOT WAIT!! I've worked on this for days and I'm just really excited to see how it's going to turn out. I actually ended up not using the layout I showed you guys in this post but I assure you, it's going to be a lot nicer than that :)

It's been a while since I've done something this productive and photography-wise, this has been my best project so far. I really enjoyed spending the last couple of days working on this, looking into every little detail and making sure that everything's perfect (to me, at least).

Work in Progress

Currently putting together a photobook-slash-portfolio. As of now, I have one complete page.
The rest still needs a lot of work. Please let me know what you think of what I have so far. I would really appreciate any comments or suggestions regarding the layout of this page and the other pages I still need to work on.

Thanks a lot! :)

Squirt, Milky & Sunny


Yesterday, Mike surprised me with an adorable stuffed animal he won from Enchanted Kingdom. Meet Squirt! I named him after one of the turtles from the animated movie Finding Nemo. Isn't he cute? :)

Since Mike and I haven't seen each other the last couple of days, we decided to do something we haven't done in a while - have breakfast together. Though our first two choices turned out to be closed for Easter, we didn't let this stop us; we were still determined to find a new place to eat. After driving around a bit, we ended up at Milky & Sunny - an all-day breakfast place in Kapitolyo, Pasig City.

Snow White & Some Gelato

Yesterday, my mom, my siblings and I went to the mall to have our photos taken for our visa application for Korea. Since we had to wait for the photos to get developed, we decided it would be a good idea to check movie schedules. It has been a while since the family saw a movie together on the big screen. We'd usually just watch a DVD at home then go to sleep right after.

Anyway, we ended up buying tickets to Mirror Mirror. My brother wanted to watch Wrath of the Titans, but I had already seen it with my boyfriend and his siblings, and my sister was more interested in fairytales than action films. He was outvoted 3-1 so he had no choice but to watch Mirror Mirror with us. Better luck next time, Bro! :D We then headed to Gelatissimo (my favorite place in TriNoma) since we still had some time before the movie started.

Then came movie time..
Mirror, Mirror was a lot of fun to watch. It added humour to the fairytale, plus some twists here and there. The movie starred Julia Roberts (as the Queen), Lily Collins (as Snow White) and Armie Hammer (as the Prince). I especially loved the scenes where the dwarves were teaching Snow White how to fight, and when they ambushed the Prince and the Queen's men. It was great too, that the dwarves were given specific roles to play; my favorite was Half Pint, because he was so in love with Snow White. :)

There are lots more to look forward to in that movie. If you haven't watched it yet, I suggest you do so this weekend. Go spend some fun family time this Holy Week :) Have a blessed one!

A Chili's Tuesday

Since my boyfriend started working, I have been spending a lot of time alone, mostly in front of my laptop, looking for new shows/movies to watch, playing Words with Friends, and post-processing random photos. It has been a boring lonely couple of weeks, so just imagine my excitement when my mom told me that we were going out for dinner last night! (Finally, some human interaction!=P)

We all headed to Chili's to spend this almost-Holy-week-break Tuesday.

Bottomless Tostada Chips (Yes, bottomless! We even got to take some home!)
Fried Cheese (Breaded Mozzarella Sticks)
Country-Fried Steak
Beef Salpicao
Grilled Baby Back Ribs
Condiments/Sauces
Can you guess which one is all over this plate?

I make the best ugly face, don't you think? :D

Overall, we really enjoyed the food. The mozzarella sticks were perfectly cooked and the ribs were just to die for. My parents loved the mashed potato from the Country Fried Steak my brother ordered while my sister and I ate most of the Beef Salpicao (which we dipped in A1 Sauce). I felt that we were able to get the value for our money since they had big servings and the service was pretty great, too!

As you can see, we're a really wacky family. I'll try to get them to smile more (instead of making silly faces) in the photos the next time we go out. :P
