Earlier this month, Terry took it upon herself to invite us over to her place. It was a pleasant evening of screaming, cartoons, Easter-esque M&Ms, LOTS OF FOOD, more screaming, and maybe some mild profanity, as per usual.
Terry's mom was not amused.
Beau and I were, though.
And so were Billie and I, but I can't say the same for Stephy.
THESE ALBINO M&Ms WERE SO GOOD MAN. They were white chocolate M&Ms. WHITE CHOCOLATE!!!!!
We prolly shoulda taken a group photo, but here's a video instead. Also, yes, I do have a new lens! I think the last time I blogged about a new lens was when I was still on LJ, but I'd rather not delve so much into the deets. All you need to know is that this lens is a lotta fuuuun.
And on that note, you know who to call for a good time. WENK WONK
Early this June my family and I went to Boracay as a sort of joint birthday celebration for my mom and I. The last time I was in Boracay was in the summer of 2012; that trip was something I wish I could relive, not only because summer of that year was great, but also because I FELL SICK IN THE LATTER OF HALF OF THAT TRIP NOT COOL BEANS.
My cousin was insistent that I could NOT leave without having tried this drink from this one... bar. I don't even remember the name of the drink nor where it came from. I think this is a jar of Weng-Weng?
There's also this vlog, which isn't much to be honest, besides a bunch of shaky clips underwater. I was testing out my shiny new ~*~GoPro~*~ (I know, so very #laboracay #summer2014 #gopro of me), hence the really random, nonsensical video.
Some old footage from June. Mae, Alex, Stephy and I decided to hold a joint birthday celebration since our birthdays were pretty close to each other (Mae, Alex and I in May; Stephy in early June) and also because our group hadn't seen each other in a while.
Besides that vlog, here are just a few other pictures:
Camille and I have always wanted a grocery/convenience store shoot, and luckily for us, we managed to squeeze in a mini-shoot with that theme a weekend before she flies back to Singapore. This was done guerilla, so it was pretty quick and brief, though I really liked a lot of the shots I got despite shooting discreetly. Guerrilla shoots just really stress me out, man. Everything stresses me out.
We were supposed to attend a kcon that day, but the queue was SICK so we ditched it and decided to shoot instead. We pulled another shoot that same day, though photos will be up on a separate post. Anyway, have a safe flight, jeogiyo! I am going to miss you heaps. See you in December (and in your letters!)
Hi!!!!! I'm just going to blog about this while I'm still in the mood because this needs to be archived in my internet space:
1. I have a new tattoo! There's personal relevance in getting a crown, and brownie points for you if you manage to figure out what it is. I believe I've wanted to get a tattoo in that specific spot since I was still in college, and toyed with the idea of a crown tattoo for almost as long. I even considered getting a Kingdom Hearts crown logo outline as my tattoo design, and came very close to sticking with that idea, but I decided against it in case the fandom does something that might... ruin my perception of the franchise in the future. I'll keep my distance from fandom tats as much as possible, despite KH being my number one fandom, but hey, my opinion might change again in the future.
Look at all that detail!
I wanna say that this tat didn't hurt as much, but it's hard to compare when my last tattoo was from 2012. Still, I do think the artist's hand wasn't very heavy and despite not having that needle pain on my skin for two years, it was pretty pleasant. (I also wanna say that maybe I might've grown accustomed to the feeling after all these years, but w h o k n o w s .........)
I was supposed to get another, smaller tattoo today, as well as retouch some of my colored tats, but my artist and I agreed on a resched instead. I'm really, absolutely smitten with the final product of my crown though! Hit me with a message or email or something and I can hook you up, if you're interested.
2. I have gray hair again! (That sounds kinda weird to say...) This one was a bit spontaneous. I was just accompanying my mom to the salon for her haircut but then she and our stylist suggested I color my hair while I was there. I told my mom some time back that I wanted white streaks or smthn with my black hair, though it was to be reserved for the farther future. I ended up getting my hair did anyway and I really love it! I only hope that it lasts much longer than the time I was ash blonde.
That's all. Just a quick life update on what happened today!
