Ok, so it’s not exactly a week since I last posted my favourites on Instagram. It’s been two weeks. I know, I’m lagging, but that’s because I got sick during the Holy Week. Seriously, since Maundy Thursday I was bed ridden because I caught the flu. I didn’t even enjoy the vacation because my throat is so irritated. And until now I’m coughing. But I haven’t been active on Instagram either, totally no internet activity coming from me. So consider this a two week Instagram treat.
On The Road Again
This is not exactly a road trip photo. It’s just a photo I’ve taken while we were driving from Cavite to Laguna. On a weekend when we decided to go to SNR in Nuvali. There’s this shortcut through fields where there aren’t many houses. The road is narrow but the view is just lovely. That valley in the photo is Santa Rosa Laguna. I had thought the photo didn’t come out great because the view is so far away and it doesn’t look the same as when you’re looking at it with your own eyes. That’s just how camera lens works, I guess. Anything far from the lens looks too small and anything near looks so large (a thing to note when you’re trying to look thinner in photos). But after post-processing, it looks amazing and I just had to share it on my Instagram.
Like A Girl
As I’ve mentioned before and I will say it again, I’m head-over-heels crazy about Flatlays. And this particular one is about my being girlaloo. Haha. When I was younger, I was a tomboy and until now I still am on days when I don’t feel like dressing up. I’m the t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. But when I was in high school I used to wear baggy hip-hop jeans, steel toe boots, backpack and all that. And I used to look at girls who carry handbags and tell myself that I will never carry something like that, but then puberty happened. Ha! Now, I’m actually one of those girls, and it feels darn good to look pretty. 🙂

Beyond The Reasons
Warning: I might mention some spoilers about Thirteen Reasons Why. I’ve read this book about a year ago and I was so moved. I felt so angry, sad, and confused and definitely hated the girl who committed suicide, and the people who drove her to do so. I hated every character in this book, but I totally loved reading it. Does that sound confusing? The TV Series came out on Netflix and I finished watching it on two weekends. I felt the same way about it, so I thought I’d do a Flatlay to share that experience.
Thinking Out Loud
I didn’t think this selfie could look good but when I post processed it, it looked kind of nice and makes me think or wonder what I was thinking at that time. It’s also cool because it was raining outside and you can see the droplets on the window.

Paris, Not Quite
I was browsing some of the photos I took when I was in Singapore last February and found this. It’s a heart sort of bridge where people can hang padlocks and throw the keys into the Clarke Quay river. It reminds me of Paris and got me starting to yearn to go there. “I want to go to Paris”. Imagine me saying that with a French accent and not pronouncing the ‘s’ in Paris.
I know rich families have heirlooms and I don’t come from a rich family but here’s something my mother gave me that I feel like it’s so precious and I want to pass it down to my descendants one day (if I will have any. Ha!). It’s a gold plated Citizen watch that doesn’t need batteries. It’s vintage and I totally love it.
