My first digital camera was a cute little pink Cybershot U that I insisted on buying purely because of kawaii factor. I dragged my Kuya to Megamall in search of the maarte 1.3 MP cam (wala pang zoom!) and we celebrated my purchase at Almon Marina. { One of the first shots from that camera } I still have that…

Made It Myself: Braids and Seed Beads Bracelets

Spent all of Sunday afternoon finishing up my handmade gifts for my friends in the office. I originally wanted to make my own version of these morse code bracelets, but I got reacquainted with this necklace I pinned a few months ago. Instead of necklaces, though, I made bracelets. I used silver seed beads, but ran out in the middle…

Holiday Rush

Last year, I was super efficient and got my Christmas shopping done at least a month before Christmas. This year, I panic bought gifts on the last weekend before Christmas eve! I had a plan, though. To get to the mall right when it opens and get out before the madness starts at lunch time. Got to Megamall at 10:30…

I don’t remember when I stopped obsessing about birthdays. When I suddenly didn’t mind that there was no party or that I didn’t intentionally make plans for the day. When I forgot that I had to blow out a candle. Or that I had to open gifts. But I remember how my ordinary birthdays always turn out extra special even…

Eager Beaver, 2011 Edition

Most people were dreading their first day back at work. I was mostly bummed at the fact that I couldn’t use the computer while lying on my tummy. Work never really feels like work for me because I do practically the same thing on vacation: surf! The only difference is, I actually upload stories online at work. But that’s not…

She’s Making a List

My family is known as The Last Minute Shoppers. We’d shop for gifts on the eve of Christmas (yes, as in December 24. I’m not kidding.). I don’t remember why we did this, but I think it was some twisted notion that there are less people shopping at that time (not true). But this morning, I headed over to the…
