this will be my last post for the year as i'm off for my holiday back home with my family. i've been very very busy at work finishing a lot of prep work, display materials and lesson plans for the coming school year but at least no one would disturb me (i hope so!) during my vacation. to all my blogger friends, i wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. i will definitely be back and will (hopefully) post more photos! ciao!!!! xx

i can never start my day without having a cup of coffee. be it early in the morning or by lunch (basically whatever time i wake up, after a good sleep). and in the afternoon while doing my prep materials at work and/or at night if i want to go to sleep. no, i'm not a coffee addict, just someone who appreciates coffee that much! and for some reasons i prefer this photo in black and white :)

photo was taken the same day for my 100th post. this was twilight. weather's quite funny during the week and it has been such a crazy week at work and it's going to be a lot crazier and hectic next week. i just want everything to be over and enjoy my very soon vacation with family in two weeks time. for now, i will enjoy beautiful sky photos from around the world for Sky Watch. have a great weekend everyone! :)

i'm going to postpone my post for the birds for now to give way for some christmas posts. i'm definitely looking forward for this christmas and crossing fingers that i would have ample time to finish some deadlines so i can definitely enjoy my holiday. santa was a xmas tree decor and the candy cane was peppermint flavoured. i used faux cross-processed app for the photos to give it an old-school look. and my first time trying to do a diptych too! :D

kind of a special post tonight. (1) it's a moon photo, taken two nights ago, one of my fave subjects that i've been neglecting for this year; (2) my 99th Sky Watch post and; (3) i'm watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tonight! yay! my most awaited movie for years. and my most fave book series of all time. i'm so excited! pardon me, i'm really a fan! :) amazing skies are surely up again! have a great weekend everyone! Expecto Patronum! :D
i've just seen the movie. and i love love love it! just don't expect it to be a lot like the book because they have modified it. but carry some tissue, i admit, i cried when h and d died, and with the holey moment too. but there were laughing moments too and a crazy unnecessary moment. and now i'm doing my countdown, eight months to go for the final installment! Obliviate! :D

i've missed taking sunset photos. it's been quite busy and hectic since the start of the year for me and i don't think it's slowing down anytime soon. but i'm glad i had the chance to attend a wedding last Sunday at Sentosa and chill out with friends afterwards at Siloso beach. i was like a crazy woman running around the beach trying to find a sweet spot for sunset photos. i'm glad i did find one! :D amazing skies are surely up for Sky Watch. have a great weekend everyone! :D

i barely had time to take sky photos this week as i'm having hectic and crazy days at work and busy schedules. i dug up my files and found this photo from my trip back home last year. i used black and white effect for a difference :D amazing sky photos are up for Sky Watch ! have a great weekend everyone! :D
Friday, October 01, 2010
i've always loved sunset. and for this year, i rarely took sunset photos as i don't have much time or weather wasn't really good. i'm quite lucky tonight on my way for dinner when i looked up the sky and saw this one. have to make do with what's in front of me, even if it means missing the bus and being late for dinner :D amazing skies are definitely up for Sky Watch! have a great weekend everyone! :D

part of my car collection, volks series :D
i was supposed to post something else tonight but i'm still having my hang-over from last night's event. i haven't had the time to sort the photos out but i will definitely be posting them here as it's been an event i was dreading and at the same time looking forward too. i promise that i'll be posting about it this week. meanwhile, i just miss my collection and am looking forward to nearly completing them :D

San Juan, La Union; Dec '09
still badly missing the beach. i've been dreaming about it lately. and no matter how near i am to Sentosa(about two bus stops away), i would still want a real beach (as they put it, i'm a beach snob. hehe). but as i always tell them, different strokes for different folks :D
Thursday, September 16, 2010
testing my new lens. yay! after more than three months i've finally got a new one (and better one too :D) after the older one was stolen. hello moon, i've missed you :D. amazing skies are definitely up for Sky Watch! have a great weekend everyone!

pickled green chilies. taken while waiting for my lunch at a hawker centre. this goes really well with "sar hor fun". sourish and spicy (just a little) at the same time. btw, i've been telling that i've got some personal projects going on. i've got one down and two more to go. but anyways, what i also want to tell is that i made a new blog. i'm going to have two separate blogs. if you're interested, take a look here. :D would appreciate it! thanks!

taken last February. somehow i keep on telling that i have some personal projects going on. i'm glad to say that i'm done with it! feel such a relief after being able to finish it. there are a lot of things i've learnt from it. i still need to polish some stuffs before finally posting it here. one thing i've realised is that it's not easy to say "yes".
Thursday, September 02, 2010
taken a few days ago on my way to buy lunch. a special Sky Watch post for a dear friend, hal, happy birthday! he never fails to bring a big smile on my face no matter what. just like seeing these clouds, puts that smile on my face! :) hope you're all happy too! have a lovely weekend everyone!

taken January 2010 at Team Manila store, Rockwell
i've been neglecting my blog for this year and i feel guilty. haven't been much out taking snaps and sorting out my archives. i'm still trying my best to sort things out as work is taking too much time. my other project is pushing through. i just need some time before i ran out of time again. lesson learnt though, never say "yes" without thinking of the consequences. :D and, i would want to own a holga camera, a real one! but still contemplating which one would come first. lens or camera? any suggestions?
Thursday, August 26, 2010
this was taken almost three months ago when i went up to Mt. Faber. haven't had the chance to take decent photos due to work and personal stuff going on :D a special Sky Watch photo. have a great weekend everyone! :D

i missed Sky Watch last week as i was quite stuck with a lot of stuffs. still trying to catch up with some works and personal stuffs. weather is not helping as well as it's back to normal. normal, being sunny and wet and rainy during the day. wasn't able to get a chance to have a new sunset photo. instead, this photo was of the same sunset i posted two weeks ago. this was at a different location and a little earlier that the previous one. have a happy weekend everyone!

taken way back February '10
i got back from my speedy backpack vacation a few days ago. i returned with loads of work and personal stuffs to do. although i had a blast from my hectic vacation, i didn't took much photos of anything, but it was the best surprise i've ever given to my grandma (she almost had a heart attack seeing me in front of our door! :D) and my mum (she pretended to be upset of not knowing). my other "project" is coming up, will still sort things out before i post about it here. :)
Friday, August 06, 2010
taken two days ago walking back from work. i had to climb up the railroad upon noticing the stunning sunset. i'm always glad to have eleanor around :D btw, i'm off back home for a quick surprise time (long weekend) with my family. it's my grandmum's 80th birthday and she doesn't know i'll be home, actually my whole family doesn't know :D i'm so excited! amazing skies are surely up again for Sky Watch. have a great weekend everyone! :)

he's Azumi's son :) he's one sweet fat cat. every morning, at 6 am, it's his ritual to wake me up, standing outside of my room and "meow-ing" until i get up and give him his breakfast. after that he would ask me to play with him or he would stand outside the shower area and wait until i'm done. he'll just go back to sleep once i leave for work. and he loves sharing the couch with me while i watch tv at night. he loves being the centre of attention. i managed to catch a portrait of him while he's resting :)

taken at Mt. Faber about exactly two months ago. weather is up to the extremes this week. it's like alternating days of sunny and humid and cool and wet. i was told that this is not the usual weather during this time of the year, it has never rained this much in a month! i'm still busy with loads and loads of stuffs but i couldn't pass up posting for Sky Watch. have a lovely weekend everyone!
Thursday, July 22, 2010
this was on the left side of the view from my last week's entry for Sky Watch. i guess i'm having technical glitches again as i can't seem to post properly and leave comments. i hope everything works out well now. will be catching up soon. have a great weekend everyone!
Friday, July 16, 2010
after a few weeks of crazy weather, finally this week was a good one! yay! i'm a happy camper now! :P taken today during lunch time on my way back to school. i love the clouds! happy Sky Watch! enjoy your weekend! :)
Tuesday, July 13, 2010
taken this morning on my way to work while waiting for the bus, around 7.35 am. i couldn't resist the sun's light. i've used the "more lomo" app for eleanor here.
i haven't been posting a lot lately. i've been kind of slacking off due to lots of changes happening around me, having moved to a new place (at the foot of Mt. Faber :D). i've also ventured into doing some "projects" which i plan to post and tell once i've sorted everything out. i don't like it when i'm piling things up but i can't help it, i'm such a slacker! :D
Friday, July 09, 2010
taken yesterday morning. i've always liked this area near my school. it always evokes different feelings for me. i love the blue sky patch on a cloudy day. taking a break from sunset shots (difficult to get one the past few days as it's always raining!). amazing skies are definitely up for Sky Watch! have a lovely weekend everyone!
