A few photos I snapped on one of my commutes from work.

Sitting at the front seat gives me a lot of liberty shooting things outside, even if my angles are limited.

Black and white rendition always adds a kind of drama in a frame.

Passenger vehicles never fall short of statement stickers. :)

The next time I take a different route to go home, maybe I’d do this again :)

This little thing was our companion when Glenduh’s winds disrupted power for three nights. When you’re in the darkness, you will truly appreciate even just a tiny flicker of light. 
The darker it is, the brighter it shines.

I believe that creativity is something inherent in all of us.
Creativity is not just in the form of an impressive drawing. It can be in the way you arrange things in your bedroom, the different pen colors you use on your planner, the inspired blog post you published earlier, or that idea nobody else from your group came up with. 
Yes, you are creative. Embrace your version of creativity.

One of the major reasons why I love Tumblr is because there are a lot of creative people out here. And when my Dashboard gets filled with wonderful posts from equally wonderful and talented people, I get fired up to create things myself. :)

Got these chords online. Hopefully I’d be able to play it soon. :D
Hillsong United songs are not the easiest to play in Ukulele, I think. I tried to strum on a few lines but I can’t quite follow the tune. I have to spend more time with this if I want to nail it within the month LOL. :)

If you are really serious about blogging, there will come a time when you will be thinking really hard about the direction you want your blog to go. And if, like me, you’re the type of person who wants to talk about a lot of things, you will eventually get frustrated because you don’t have a niche.

Niche blogging. I hated that term. It feels limiting, like forcing myself inside this box of posting about one topic only. Like I can’t be anyone else.

At this point, however, I’m starting to think about my blog in terms of brand. Image. What am I projecting to the world about me when I post this stuff?

But I’m already 26. The thought is akin to an old lady wanting to learn how to ride a bike. But damn, I have higher ambitions. And this is what I want to do. It is never too late to try.

So yeah. If I want some direction, I guess I have to make some radical changes to figure out my path. And that’s not just blogging, but life in general. Yes.

I hope all of ya are safe from the trashing of Bagyong Glenduh. We still have no electricity.

On top of that, PLDT, for whatever reason, have their internet lines busted since last week. Inunahan pa nila si Glenduh. Hmp!

Keep safe, y’all! May bagong bagyo daw ulit sa weekend. #nomoreplease

Playing around with a header when I was thinking of rebranding my blog to dedicate it solely on my creativity pursuit. Banana is my favorite fruit in the world. <3

I just want to be great at something. Anything. Even just one. 
But when you&#8217;re 26, learning something and being great at it is no big deal anymore because a lot of younger peeps have already beaten you at it.
So what do I do? This: to always keep in mind that I&#8217;m not learning typography or ukulele or photography for competition. I&#8217;m learning them to satisfy my soul&#8217;s need for creativity.

The truth about love and relationships. It is not always romantic and sweet and mushy.

Okay. Some anime randomness about Full Metal Alchemist and that episode that made every fans feel horrible. 
It started with me searching for more anime songs to add to my Grooveshark anime playlist. Then I remembered that FMA has great opening and ending themes. Then I recalled the most unforgettable FMA episode ever: The Night of the Chimera&#8217;s Cry. I browsed through Tumblr tags and there it was: Nina Tucker, the cute, lovable, adorable, perfect 4-year old Nina Tucker, turned into a chimera by her a-hole, son of a b*tch materialistic dad.
I seriously am teary-eyed right now. :&#8217;(

"What exactly is a “traditional marriage” other than being between a man and a woman? I just don’t get it. We’re about as traditional as you can get. We work, pay taxes, eat dinner, play with our dogs, sleep, hang out with friends, work on communication issues and try to be good contributing people to our society. What’s wrong with that? What do you want from us?"

Peter Monn on a traditionalist’s argument on same-sex marriage.

And he is damn right.

uniquecole:

The problem is that we live in a world where even a man who has a kid and a wife and a decent job may never be truly happy, because when he was a child his parents taught him to measure the worth of his life based on the amount of money he earned, rather than the amount of moments he lived.

The problem is that this is a cruel, material world full of cruel, materialistic human beings.

The problem is that we all know this, and yet it seems that no one ever wants to admit to it.

The problem is that we are all so scared and so stubborn to change anything at all.

The problem is that we don’t even know why.”

#RELATEMUCH

I’m at this point in my life — maybe a midlife crisis, if that’s what you want to call it — that I’m seriously thinking about the pursuit of happiness.

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Re-reading one of my favorite books. A lot of people think it’s too preachy, akin to a self-help with nothing new to say. But I think it’s brilliant and tells me exactly what I need to hear.

CLUB SUMMER PLACE | BORACAY NIGHTLIFE
I&#8217;m a clubbing and/or bar virgin.
My nightlife used to be simply drinking beer with a couple of friends at places like Tides or Central during wee hours until 6 or 7 AM, and even that wasn&#8217;t as usual as I want.
I told Jaix that I&#8217;ve never spent more than 5 minutes inside a real bar, never rowed with friends and strangers on the dance floor. My girlfriend, who is ever so enthusiastic in initiating me to the ways of the world, then took me last weekend to one of Boracay&#8217;s loudest party places: Club Summer Place in Station 2.
Now I&#8217;m kinda lazy writing a narrative so I&#8217;d do it in bullets instead.
We entered the bar early while they&#8217;re still not charging an entrance fee. I promptly ordered a Malibu Pineapple cocktail.
At around 12 midnight, people were getting more aggressive. A Filipina was dancing all out with a cute white guy. When the girl took a rest, the guy approached her and they kissed like no one else was in the room. It was fun to watch.
The Filipina returned dancing on the elevated stage. The white guy was looking up to her. He stood up, and being the tall guy that he was, he didn&#8217;t need to step up on the stage to have his face in the level of her boobs.
At 1 AM, I finally had the guts to ask Jaix if we can hit the dance floor as well. It was pretty crowded with a bunch of Koreans.
I bobbed my head to the beat, moved my feet and raised my arms occassionally, all the while thinking, "where&#8217;s the fun in this?"
I had no idea how much time passed, but my legs eventually grew tired.
We went back to our hotel room and downed a can each of beer at the balcony. It was so much better.
I didn&#8217;t enjoy the entire thing very much, but I am happy with the fact that I was finally able to experience it. I guess I&#8217;m not really a party person. Thank goodness, my girlfriend is flexible. ;)
