Savoring My Semi-Productive Summer

 

My Summer ends today. Enrollment starts tomorrow and the next thing I know, classes and quizzes and homework will start rolling in like an avalanche. Everyone deserves a fairy-tale-like happy ending right?

Today, my highschool classmate Maureen treated each of us a whole plate of pizza before she goes back to CMU. Never been served with an assortment, eh? I had these slices from bartering with ’em. I thought we looked ridiculous in the pizzeria considering we’re a loud bunch of cool kids. Maybe we looked like arguing over our own slices, but we weren’t really. We’re just naturally noisy, or should I say, THEY are naturally noisy :3

We then headed to Wat Ever KTV Bar, which I didn’t take much participation because I went home earlier, afraid that my mom might turn austere about my outdoor rendezvous with my friends if I come home late. We would have been done earlier if only people showed up on the exact time we were supposed to meet – 1 pm. But Filipino time it is and they showed up 2 hours late. Seriously, I don’t blame anyone because I love my friends as hard as I’d stamp on a cockroach. 

I had a great summer although I wasn’t able to do all things on the list like learn how to bake, master the morse code, read 15 books (I only managed 11 cause I was busy living my actual life). I had a memorable summer of service working with my orgmates in KKP for the May 2013 National Elections, nurturing my experience and social relationship despite taking most of my days in April and the half month of May. I can’t forget working 3 sleepless days for some posters for the Candidate’s Forum that were rejected which I was too lazy to write about. T.T  Other events include Casey’s birthday, Aquatro Reunion/Outing, visits to my dentist, and.. well, yeah, that’s it. I can’t remember the rest of the insignificant happenings. I spent the rest of my summer watching movies and anime. Okay, it’s getting boring so give me the honor to end with a period.

 

For a Mother to Keep

          Happy Mother’s Day to every mom! Well, I wouldn’t also forget to greet my grandmother. So here I am again, making a card for my mom. I’ve been doing this since childhood and the only times I didn’t was when we bought a cake instead. We’ve been flooded from last year’s typhoon Sendong and all the cards my mom kept that we, her children, have made,  are gone. So I decided I’d make another one this year.

           It’s the front cover. . . pretty plain and simple. I’ve been out of ideas because I haven’t prepared for this day. So this is what I’ve managed. With a little tutorial from youtube, I made those flowers. Just fold and flip!

         Inside my card, I made a poem. If appearance can’t guarantee the proof of my efforts, then I guess being lyrical can make up for it. Added some doodles, not to forget a picture of a panda and then done! I apologize for the poor penmanship. 🙂

          If you can’t manage to read from the photo, I’ll quote it.

Flowers may grow and wither

But words can live until forever

So three things I have to say

To you this Mother’s Day

First, I want to THANK YOU

For the love and care you give that is true

For staying strong for the family

While heavy burdens you have to carry

Second, as I must, I DO APOLOGIZE

For the mistakes I have come to realize

These things, I know, must have hurt you

But to inflict pain I didn’t intend to

Finally, I’ll say the words that greatly signify

‘Cause despite the times that I defy

In spite of the instances that I disappoint you

My actions may show contrast, I DO LOVE YOU.

Merienda: A Filipino’s Favorite Afternoon Snack

               Filipinos have the tradition of taking a light meal in the afternoon which we call “merienda.” The merienda usually consists of coffee paired with breads and pastries. The most typical bread is pandesal but for my preference, I take sliced bread. I’ve always savored the taste of coffee even at a young age. It even tastes better when you dip a piece of bread and take a bite (The Filipino version of oreo dipped in milk). It gives me the soft feeling from the moistened bread like it melts on your mouth and warm feeling from the hot coffee. I do rather have more cream or milk on it and sugar on my coffee. I do not like to take in too much caffeine.

              Why do we do it? Some people said that it was to sterilize bread before eating it. Not really. I think it’s just a great a combination and a fun way of eating bread. The meal tastes good with the bittersweetness.

              Well, look at my panda mug. Isn’t it cute?

Do you dip bread into coffee too?

Digital Art

i don’t know if this counts in digital art but I made the photos when I was twelve. I drew girls and then scan them to my computer and apply some color using photoshop. I was trying to make it look like in animes but I guess I failed. Nevertheless, I’m still proud of it. 🙂

I love witches! one of my favorite characters in fairytales. and this one is a good witch.

I love a simple outfit. Jeans and shirt is the ideal fashion for me.

I really fancy figureskating. But back then, I had trouble drawing shoes so I made it as a ballet dancer instead.

just a girl in sailor suit.

Gone to my happy place. Be back soon.
