By the Window
Someone, not known to us, selflessly prays that our choices in life may be guided and stay grounded at times when confusion and doubt consumes us — and with that, we’re eternally grateful and thankful — whoever you are.
Life is indeed full of surprises. I can still remember back in 2011 when boyfriend and I started dreaming of going places around the globe, and how we’ll leave imprints in each one of those and then take home with us memories and lessons that only experiences taught us in the process. And here we are again, sitting by the window, conveying our thoughts out for this another unexpected chapter and then seek each other’s comfort as we humbled ourselves not to question the unknown and let alone risk this one and let it unfold. May we continue to pull each other up and bear in mind not to satisfy everyone else’s expectations but rather our own satisfaction. And lastly, own our problems before it starts owning us.

Snaps n’ Squares: August
Time flew fast and so are these photos. I’m bidding August goodbye with a photo dump (taken from my phone) because some of it were deemed memorable but wasn’t blogged in detail (nor shared in any of my social media accounts, except for this one photo). Life’s been good so far — of course there are dull and shitty days too but it didn’t make me feel like I have a bad life at all! There are days where there’s something I can’t go a day without thinking about, and it makes me a li’l excited if not anxious. Is it because ‘ber’ month is a sleep away?

Energy Cup
The day before yesterday, I staggered a bit when Mr. Delivery Guy came buzzing on our studio’s doorstep, carrying a boxlike parcel as he holla my name — “Miss Joanne?” I’m all giddy while chanting repeatedly “Ye’y! Mom’s package is here!” and he knew I’d be all smiles as I sign and receive it. I’m so excited I can’t even contain myself not to rip the plastic apart until I got home. Now, you might think this is just an ordinary tumbler but nope. Don’t be deceived! This is the kind of tumbler that has this filtration technology that converts your daily drinking water into an ionized and alkaline one. Okay, so wtf is that it sounds too technical. Simply put, this energy cup transforms water poured into it to a healthy drinkable one. How did I know? Well, my parents are health junkies — they truly are that they keep discovering stuff like this around the globe. I got hospitalized last week (and yeah, I’m so shy I made a scene during work hours) and my parents know this would be of great help to keep me healthy aside from drinking vitamins and such. Now, I feel like my mom is beside me, reminding me every now and then to rehydrate myself. Thanks mom!

This is only one of the items that was sent to me and receiving such not only made me miss my family more, it made me want to go back to PH and have a month-long break. Energy Cup

Downtown Bridge
Every time I walk under this bridge, it’s seemingly within arm’s reach from the bottom (or maybe it’s just me). And no matter how many times earthquake shook it, it still stands strong without a streak — at least in my naked eye. This is the second time boyfriend and I graced the night with strobes and I can say every attempt doesn’t make it any less challenging. I’ve always loved natural light photography, but little did I know, night photography can turn out lovely as well especially with these fancy skyscrapers and lights, effortlessly beautifying the scene.

Uno Chicago Grill
Yesterday was worth splurging even if it’s not yet payday because Chicago Grill serves nothing but sumptuous meals that’s worth every dime. Not exaggerating though, it is! We ordered seafood platter, rice and muchos nachos that are good for two (or atleast for us) and I regret that I haven’t ordered a dessert, boohoo. Seafood platter may look like your average bits & mix of fish, shrimp, squid and fries but once you take a bite, you won’t stop anymore. It’s definitely not the breading that gives taste to it (compared to those that I’ve tasted) but more like its inner core — marinated perhaps? The rice might look like Chowking’s chaofan but hell no, it’s far different. It has bell pepper for sure but there’s nothing I can compare its taste to. All I know is it’s tasty! Lastly, muchos nachos. I haven’t appreciated nachos that much until I tasted this one. I was like, do nachos really taste like this? Because even without the sauce, you’re all good. Do I find myself coming back here? Definitely! I’d love to try the rest of the top seller in the menu.

Strobe Lights
Standing next to this beautiful modern Victorian facade that I hold dear to my heart, not because I feel like an underdressed Juliet waiting for Romeo, but because this firm gave me my first animation project I did months ago which I never imagined doing apart from being a web designer. I hate how tedious Flash is that I easily turn down every animation project handed to me in a blink of an eye — but not for this one, boss’s orders.
[[MORE]]
As for the title, boyfriend is trying out his new babies — 2 external flash with matching umbrella! Yeah, so you can only imagine how we kinda caused a scene while shooting this. Not to mention, a patrol car in front of us. Lol. No worries though, the police probably just stared at me while doing awkward poses. Strobe Lights

Temptation: Sephora
Before summer drew to a close, here I am hoarding like a scurrying ant on the ground, preparing for the worst ever drying phase of my skin before winter sets in. It was a weekend when I went to the mall to kill time and there was I, trying my best to avoid the tempting boutiques I have in mind because of the possibility that I might splurge too much. But no matter how hard I hold myself back, my feet keeps coming back to where it was wanting to go. It found its way towards my haven — Sephora. I knew by just standing through the glass wall that my eyes would undeniably glisten even before I step foot in. So I finally gave in!
[[MORE]]
Been using Clinique’s moisturizer for almost 2 years already and I have nothing but good reviews for it. My boyfriend (who has zero interest with stuff like this) even fancy using it now because of the dramatic changes it give to one’s skin. Pricey but worth it especially to those extra sensitive skin ones like me. My first bottle made it for 1 and a half year, ain’t bad huh? So this is my second bottle and the best part of it is that I received free Clinique samples along with a pouch too. Cool! I first heard the wonders of this product when I joined in Sample Room where you can get to try a product for free in exchange for an honest review. Too bad I’m out of the country and can no longer participate and enjoy the free stuff. Boo!
So this is one of the skincare products I religiously use everyday and I don’t feel like looking for anything else when it comes to moisturizers. Should I blog about the rest? Nah, bet it will take forever.  Temptation: Sephora

Gym Buddies
Tried hitting the gym for the first time after work, and the experience is far different from what I was expecting. It-was-painful-why-did-I-even-bother-trying kind of experience! Been asked to fill out a not so lengthy form and the big question that was thrown at me was “What is your goal?”. Sure I have the answers with me but a part of me isn’t that confident to jot it down and it made me feel like writing something with a tinge of half-assery. But of course, I still truthfully answered everything.
Boyfriend was kind enough to do the routines with me because aside from feeling shy, I also feel like giving up in the middle of the session. (Thanks to him, I at least find it a little fun especially doing sit ups). He keeps on asking, "You okay? You wanna stop? Let’s rest?" and my instructor would be like, "Be proud of her! Don’t baby her, she can do it!!" countless of times. Bet she just want to motivate me, but duh — I died the next day! I walked like a robot and can’t even move properly. Pain ate me alive.

Some of you might ask and wonder with glare on your eyes on what the hell am I trying to work out for that I’m so petite what else is there to burn. Well, that’s true but I’m also after building up my resistance especially now that different kinds of virus are everywhere near the neighboring country of DXB. And just like what my colleague said, this is something to be taken seriously because people die as we speak. Gym Buddies

Boyfriend was kind enough to do the routines with me because aside from feeling shy, I also feel like giving up in the middle of the session. (Thanks to him, I at least find it a little fun especially doing sit ups). He keeps on asking, "You okay? You wanna stop? Let’s rest?" and my instructor would be like, "Be proud of her! Don’t baby her, she can do it!!" countless of times. Bet she just want to motivate me, but duh — I died the next day! I walked like a robot and can’t even move properly. Pain ate me alive.

Lazy Hair

It’s been 2 months since I had my hair cut short and surprisingly, I don’t feel like missing my extra long hair of mine. Sure I miss the part where it looks straight (I’m naturally wavy, btw) and shiny but only because I have the means to maintain it by having a cellophane every other month before I shifted to a different country. But now, hair is no longer a priority — and even though I’d love to continue spoiling my hair with treatments, my environment just won’t permit me in doing so. I don’t have the skills to strike a balance between letting it grow long by not exerting too much effort and money, add up the part where the water coming out of my faucet is boiling hot (wish my flat has a chiller) which is bad for the skin and hair, and the weather is too humid and dusty that it’s impossible to wash my hair every other day. I didn’t know beforehand how extreme my environment will be that I’m faced clueless with all these situations. At that point, one thing is I’m sure about — I need to give up my long hair. Now, my hair might look messy and ragged but at least it’s not that flat compared when I’m having salon treatments. Didn’t expect my hair will produce this much volume without a frizz (or maybe it’s the shampoo?). And yep, I’m still using my fingers to comb it — so voila! Lazy hair.

I asked boyfriend if he also struggles with his hair and he admitted that even it’s already short, it’s still burdensome because of the hot water coming from the faucet — he even wanted to be bald (again!) He’s a curly guy and I understand his struggle. Curls = frizz. Lazy Hair
