Everything in life is amazing, regardless.

Like A Sister



I met G around 11 in the evening at the Porter House last night, it was her leaving do party before she heads off to Brazil. The pub is much perfect for a teenybopper kind of crowd, would see a girl crying over a boy drama; flirting with not so good men; loud Rihanna music and alike. I think I’ve overgrown that kind of ambiance and besides I’m not really a party person, I prefer meeting friends over dinner or coffee. Does it make sense or am I just getting old?

But on the other hand I had fun because G’s friends are lovely people. I only met them for the first time and felt so welcome. G stayed by my side, had shots for about nth times, after vodka, after Corona and the list goes on... I even remember drinking a cocktail with mint taste, etc. I’m proud to say I’m sober enough at dawn to go home. It was a fun night minus the other’s drama. 

The hangover hit me the next day, terrible headache. Panadol does the trick I was all well after taking the pill and managed to eat breakfast. I drove G to her friend’s house to get her car and belongings, we bid sweet goodbyes thinking it might be a long while to see each other again (if she decides to live in Brazil for good!). I’d wish the best for my dear friend who I consider as my own sister. I went on a long way to drive back home to enjoy a quiet time alone, awwww I’m gonna miss G, I whisper...

Powerscourt Easter

Family went to Enniskerry Village on Easter Sunday to check out the well known Powerscourt "Waterfalls” inside the vicinity of Powerscourt. I'm a bit disappointed to see that it isn’t that magnificent to look at, plus the fact that each has to pay €5 (€3.50 for kids) per entry. The place is like a circus and everyone wants to have their picture taken (including us) at the waterfalls as a picture background, perhaps posting them in fb with caption "marvelous waterfalls", now being sarcastic here... The weather is great but still feeling chill-y which explain why I’m wearing a stocking. Believe me, I brought 3 different kinds of shoes end up had to wear a knee high boots because it was freezing cold brrr.

See what I mean? Cars were even parked on the grass near to the waterfalls, it's too commercialized.

Oooops! Hurry hurry! No people around!


My intention of taking picture of the sceneries went negative, there’s loads of people every where. K took a long time to play at the recreation area, she liked the huge slide they have it there while H devoured all the junk foods we brought in, bought more from the store as well like hotdogs, cotton candy & ice cream heehee. In spite of the displeasure of the place, I’d still enjoy the road trip naman and of course the quality time.

Point and Shoot

I would love to carry this SLR Bowler Camera Bag with me on a ‘daily photoshoot’, days not necessarily to bring tripod, charger etc., but I’m having a hard time to get one, there’s none on eBay neither in Amazon. Would be better to carry this fabulous bag instead of the camera backpack I have at the moment. Where o where...


Fab! Fab! Fab! and it's RED!

Cutest ever, isn't?


My models a.k.a friends have been cooperative to posed whatever I asked them to do :) camera loves ‘em and I do enjoy every shoot. We only do these over lunch hence time is limited.

I’ve been learning how to tweak some of my shots in Photoshop, not that easy though, it takes patience, meticulous hands and hardwork. It’s quite different from photographing an object or landscape, emotion has to be there somewhere... facial nor body expressions.

While I'm at it (Photoshop) I saw Madonna’s picture on the net which was edited in photoshop
