Current mood: Of Monsters and Men

20130206-133147.jpg

I am badly missing Singapore and Laneway as I find myself lost during lunch break, watching videos from Youtube. I still cannot believe I went there and saw Of Monsters and Men live! It was such a magical experience, as their music is to me. Lately, I either work or read about travel and I am still on a traveling high. Maybe it’s high time I explore the world more… And when I say more, maybe a few hundred (or thousand) miles away from home.

Six weeks is one of the memorable songs Of Monsters and Men played during the festival, and quite apt, it talks about going away and coming back. A little more than six weeks and I’ll be back flying again, I guess.

And maybe I’ll dread to come back because the world is ao beautiful and there is just so much to see.

Sleep, sleep all night
while the young, they wait alone.
Get up, shake the rust.
We crawl, we crawl, we crawl,
we crawl on the ground.

P.S. This is just a spinoff from my Singapore-Laneway series but I really wanna start it out on my new platform! I’m really working on it so please please please watch out for it!

And this will be hard to choke out not going… I’d want to discuss here why but maybe later. Still not in the mood hihi. Anyway.

Listen to three of today’s movers in social media and Philippine society. Maria Ressa, Yves Gonzales, and my very own former boss and friend Ros Juan will be speaking about their work in social good! It really pains me not being able to go…

So to know more about this, head on over a http://www.gamechangers.infinite.ly or contact Arriane Serafico @arriane_… and book that date, Jan. 26, already. Highly recommended!!

College memories

20130107-074030.jpg

Yesterday, I got to meet some of my classmates x dutymates x most probable group in any class class activity. Way back college, I swore I never imagined I’d ever see them again, and it was nice to hear their stories post-mortem, ehrm college (!) Dee just got back from Australia, and her sister Zoe is graduating this year. EC, who’s really not our groupmate but is a welcome addition to the pack to eat two humongous pans of pizza, is taking up Medicine with some other batchmates. Joanne and Johnel are pretty much taking the high road of their nursing career… And well me, still trying to deny that I am a nurse (hehe) but will review this year for US boards.

It’s fun to hear their stories from different perspectives. And I guess, life is just starting for us. Some are overwhelmed with the rigors of daily adult life. And some are just swinging by. Some are still students in the medical field, while some decided to take the course called life. Whatever paths we may be treading now, it’s apparent that adult life is not easy, but is fun and challenging.

I really hope we can do this every now and then guys, I really miss you all.

P.S. 110, kung nababasa nyo ‘to magpakita naman kayo minsan hahaha!

It’s quite refreshing and coincidental that I just read this post JUST NOW. Y’all know the shit going through my blog – how I have not been writing and taking photos so often as the last six months. And reading this just drives me to blog how I used to. It’s a complex of emotions right now that I don’t wanna divulge here. So yeah.

Anyway Thanks Kris, for the message. Hola to my Spanish readers, too. And to all who still read my blog. Please know that you guys are loved by this blogger. Kris, I hope you don’t mind I posted our conversation here. It really makes me feel good, especially now.

Backlog Progress Report

20121112-062157.jpg

Yepp, I’m in the middle of werq-related shit, and currently pulling an all-nighter (ah, well it’s morning already, so fuck eeeeeet) and neither the two us, here with my friend Vince, are finished. I’m tempted to tease you though with what I’ll be blogging in the next days (God, I need a free day) but I’d rather you guys be excited about it.

But, I’ll be starting a mini-travel series, some news about our generous brand friends, and a little big (labo, haha!) gossip in the local blogging industry.

So I hope you’re not bummed there (’cause I am with all the lack of sleep) and you keep tuned in to my little happy space.

Til free time decides to bug me,

Hello, I miss you

20121109-141740.jpg

It’s been more than one week since I posted here, and I’ve been itching to blog about a lot of things (especially, my long weekend at Boracay!) but I’ve been really busy and tired… and yes, lazy haha (huhu!) So I wish I really get the time to get back to all of you… I miss this place, my happy, infinite place ;(

Vintique is App of The Weeque

Haha, idk why I typed that, but it just rhymes and it sounds good. LOL!

20121019-125748.jpg

Ayway, this week, the App Store introduced its App of the Week featuring Vintique. At first glance Vintique looks like your usual Instagram shit – filters, frames, and that kind of stuff you see going on almost every Instagram-inspired app. But Vintique is different. It has more filters, and it has Photoshop-level powers! I think photographers who don't have time to open their laptops to edit their photos can take advantage of this app. It has saturation, temperature, tint, hue, exposure, and gamma levels available for tweaking if you're one OC photographer.

What I don't know is if it's a paid app before it became App of the Week. It wouldn't hurt to download it now, just in case it is though, haha.

You can download Vintique directly on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad here:

Update

20120912-035426.jpg

So a little update for now. It’s really busy in my side of the world right now. Especially, I’m just getting used to my new schedule. There’s a lot that I really wanna share to you guys, that I really hope I do soon. Especially with these exciting new things happening to me right now. I’ll discuss in further detail soon.

For now here’s a photo of me accidentally taking a photo of my self. I was being vain and before I can pose, I tapped the button already. Pretty candid, haha.

I look cute. No, forget I said that. Unless, you know, you agree. Haha!
