My World took a Tram Ride

taken at Corregidor
Things have been pretty crazy again for me, trying to set up other businesses. I have to admit, its frustrating to be working hard on all these things and not make money from them yet. I keep reminding myself to be patient and one day, I will reap the rewards of all my hardwork. PATIENCE!!!

Spanish Courtyard

taken at San Agustin Church

Remember the wrought iron heart I posted here? This is the courtyard that gate led to. I really like the fountain in the middle and I'm sure it would be even prettier if it was on. I imagine what it would have been like here during the Spanish era. I bet they held banquets out here!

Skywatch Friday Knows The Time

taken at Venice, Italy

Yeah, I'm a day late for Skywatch Friday but better late then never right? ;p This has got to be one of the coolest clocks I've ever seen! Although it's kinda difficult to tell the time... the time I took this shot it was like 7.... something..... Can I just say it was a couple of minutes to 8?? And the moon was up!

Oh Italy, how I miss you.

Check out more skies here.

Missing My Film

taken at Beijing, China
I miss my lomo cameras. My supplier was MIA since April and finally has reappeared a couple of weeks ago. Thanks God coz I was having a really hard time finding another supplier! Lomography is not a cheap hobby at all. I'm trying to finish a roll of film in my Holga but weather hasn't been very sunny over here and I prefer taking photos on sunny days. Since film is so expensive, I can't just click away like there's no tomorrow! I really try to get a good shot everytime. I love the anticipation of seeing my film developed and hoping for an extraordinary photo. Lomo is love. :)

Love From Above

taken at the San Agustin Church, Manila
I love this wrought iron design that was placed over the gate of the courtyard in the San Agustin church. Exploring old Manila really is fun. I loooove traveling and whenever I'm in another country, I soak up all their history and culture. Then I realized that I've forgotten all the history of my own country and visiting Intramuros and Corregidor has reminded me about the journey our country has gone through to get to where we are now.

Let It Guide Your Way

taken at Corregidor
Yesterday, I was on my way to Makati and stuck in traffic along Pasong Tamo. I was texting my friend and complaining that I didn't have a regular cash flow, I needed to find a way to make more money, what I was making from my stall wasn't enough, I was getting impatient with having to wait for the other businesses to give me cash flow etc, etc. Right after I sent a long and whiny text message, I look out the window and saw a homeless man sleeping on the sidewalk with no shirt on and broken slippers. It was like the Lord was the Lord was reminding me about all the other blessings I have. There I was,  in the comforts of my own car, complaining that the money I am getting each month isn't enough but this man probably doesn't get anything. That image really put things in perspective. I may not be getting the money I want each month YET but I'm getting there. I'm lucky to have parents who are helping me out while I work on my financial freedom.  

Thank you, Lord for that reminder yesterday. Instead of complaining about my cash flow, I'll use that reminder to make me work harder to reach my goals faster.
