My World Tuesday is a Fireball

taken at Boracay

Boracay really is one of my favorite places in the world. The perfect sand, friendly people... its beautiful. I took this picture one night in one of the bars along the beach and they had a show with the firedancers. It was an amazing site! It may sound cheesy but it's a beautiful form of dance. The fire is absolutely mesmerizing! If you find yourself in Boracay, you shouldn't miss this. :) 

I whipped out my Holga, set it on the bulb setting and let the firedancer work her magic. The outcome reminds me of that anime, Dragonball. Haduken!

The Holidays Are Coming

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and celebrated it with the people most important to you. :) Every year, my family goes to our beach house with our relatives and celebrates the coming of a new year with lots of love, laughter and booze. It's one of my favorite traditions! Hehehe... I love how crazy my family can get!

How are you welcoming in the new year?

Watery Wednesday is In Beihai Park

taken at Beihai Park in Beijing, China

I love the shot of this lone boat on the lake. I would have likes to have taken a ride around the park as well but we didn't have the time.

Little Tala

Meet Tala Miller. She's the daughter of my good friend, Gail. Isn't this too cute? And I love her zebra leggings!

Simple Joys

taken at Beihai Park, Beijing

Good customer service is always key to a good business. I complained to the place I have my film developed that the shots of one of my rolls were missing and they immediately resent all my photos for free! Yey! When I saw the shots from my Vivitar, I couldn't believe it still had shots from my Beijing trip which was like in May if I'm not mistaken. Unfortunately it takes me longer to finish my 35mm rolls since the Vivitar has no flash, I definitely can't use it at night, unlike the Holga. There are no settings I can tinker around with to help brighten the shot on a cloudy day either so I'm very picky about when I can whip out my Vivitar and take pictures. It has to be a relatively sunny day. 

On a sadder note, my lola (grandmother) passed away last night at 11:10pm. Please say a little prayer for her. She had quite a struggle against cancer and of course I'm sadden that she has left us but at the same time glad she doesn't have to suffer anymore. It's been a tough few months for her. I just wish we were there to say good bye.

How I Miss You Boracay

taken at Boracay, Philippines

I got my film today! Yey! Bad news though is that one was unexposed (how can that happen??) and the photos from my Vivitar don't seem to be in the CD. Definitely calling the hotline tomorrow. 

Only 2 days to go before my last day from my month-long stint in my old agency and honestly, I can't wait. The account that they needed help with was really tough and I can't say I'm going to miss them. I'm looking forward to going back to my usual life and I appreciate being a struggling entrepreneur even more. I'm super excited for 2011, January is already looking interesting! Another business is coming up and I'm sooooo excited. It's something new here in the Philippines. :)

Oh Dear Blog, How I've Missed You!

taken at the Yabang Pinoy Bazaar

I've been away for waaaaaay too long! I apologize for that. Things just have been pretty busy plus, I haven't had the chance to take any blog-worthy photos. That just means I need to take more photos! I have a bunch of used rolls of film that needs developing, pronto!

This photo was taken during one of the bazaars Hanky Panty participated in. Couldn't figure out how to flip the photo but the sign says "there's no excuse for boring underwear!"
