It's the final count down

*1 day till the Spank Rock Concert..... yes it's tomorrow night....wo00OT!

*1 sleep away for Jason, he is leaving for BARCELONA tomorrow!! :(

* 1 week till I fly out to the Philippines.....yay! cant wait!!!! :)

I attended Jason's farewell bash last Friday. The day has finally arrived... he is leaving.... Im actually quite sad about it, and very jealous at the same time.... he is living my dream... Spain for a year!!! I wish you all the best JASON!!! You better email you punk arse!!!! I want to hear all your exchange student/ tourist stories!!!! I will miss our random conversations........listening to old school Bon Jovi wont be the same without you.... *tear*........ have a safe trip buddy!


Saturday's mission: The Holga camera

Tim and I headed to Paddington to the Just Shoot lomography shop (16 elizabeth st paddington). I suggest that everyone from Sydney head down there (especailly if your a photography nut) ... it's such a cool funky arty farty store. The heatwave didnt help the experience, but looking at the awesome photographs did do some justice.

I have bought my long awaited Holga camera.... 6x6 photos baby... although you can convert the camera to a normal 35mm.... what a clever lil' bugger..... I am in love with lomography at the moment, i love the photos the Holga creates.... each photo you take will be totally different... Holga bends the rules.......actually there are no rules JUST SHOOT!!!... ooh you bad arse!

I have always loved photography.... There is something beautiful about it, capturing images in the moment... time stands still..... a story behind the image.... *gush*

visit www.lomography.com.au to understand why I love it!!!!

I can't wait to bring it to Pinoy-land and start taking happy snaps!!! The downside is probably the cost of the film and processing the photographs.... but it will be well worth it... i hope........

The hotness

sneaky lil' bastard... taking pics while im out like a light....

da da da... dummmmm.... THE HOLGA!!! i love the packaging!!!!!

something old... something new....

I love going through my mum's closet... I always find something awesome to steal. Im glad she never threw away some of her retro clothes. I feel like a fat kid in a candy store... salivating at all the cool goodies... I found an old black and white checkered shift dress, I remember my mum use to wear it when I was four years old and through out primary school. I recently wore it out with Tim when we had dinner. I heart it. I absolutely love fashion, it will be the death of me.....

Meanwhile.... I watched APOCALYPTO on Saturday night.... and Sunday...yes again...with Tim... far out man, that movie rocked.... a bit brutal... but I love it! Mel Gibson did a REALLY GREAT JOB. I have always been fascinated with Mayan history and culture... I basically love everything about South America and Spain, and I seriously can't wait to travel there..I can't wait to go to Machu Picchu.....*I hate you Jason for going to Barcelona for a year!!!*..

****shit..... im going to the Philippines soon....yay!!!!!!

I forgot about this pics...

Yay for Spank Rock.... boohoo for Peaches

Im going to the Spank Rock concert at The Metro.... im s0 excited... It will be a nice reward just before I go to the Philippines....

But I'm pissed off because Peaches has a concert on the same night... but at Home... DAMN IT!!! I really wanted to go.....blooday oath.... It would of been so cool if Spank Rock and Peaches had a combined concert.... Just like The Roots and Jurassic 5 a few years back.... it was a pity I couldn't go that... *stares at Tim*

The year that was 2006.....

This is the first time that I have had a chance to actually sit and reflect on what I have learnt in 2006…. I guess it is a bit late to write all or most my thoughts, I have just been really busy to take time out.

I would have to say that 2006 has been a really excellent year for me. Opportunities came my way towards the end of it, and I am truly grateful for them. When the year started I was semi depressed because I really was confused with my future, what path in advertising I wanted to pursue, the goals that I wanted to achieve. All these questions were answered instantaneously; it was like a crazy epiphany. No more um’s and ah’s …..
I now realize what my passions are… taking action and seizing them is the next step…..
I was in this depressed state for a while worrying about career and money, but my dad gave me simple advice…. “Don’t worry about revolving your life around money…. that is foolish…but measure your life in terms of whether or not you are truly happy”

2006 made me realize who and what I was really like, the people who know me well, i.e. family members and boyfriend know how angry and hostile I can get. Thus I am slowly controlling these emotions. I guess there’s no point in being that way, not only does it makes it unpleasant for people to be around me, when I’m like this. But it is also unpleasant to carry a heavy load of unnecessary negative thoughts and emotions.

2006 enabled me to rekindle old friendships. Having an opportunity to be employed at my friends work wouldn’t have enabled this. To me I see working there as a blessing in disguise, in terms of creating a new bond with past friends and also having a chance to work in the advertising field.
2006 made me realize what and who true friends were and are. I did have a fight/ dispute with one of my close mates, but don’t you worry all was resolved. But in a strange way I’m glad it happened, I learnt a lot and contemplated on what was communicated. It made me realize what the situation was…. It made me realize who was really there for her or me or us…. It made me realize the true meaning of friendship…..

2006 enabled me to spend more time with my sister, amidst the fights, hectic schedules and not seeing each other often. We both know that we would be there for each other unconditionally. I ♥ you Mara. I can’t wait for our trip back to the motherland Philippines in February!

2006 was a GREAT year, a lot of lessons learnt. A lot of great memories.

I hope 2007 is even better! It will be Chinese New Year and it is the year of the PIG… oink oink…….my year… as my boss says… “this is your year, its going to be a good one… love… money…career!!!’

I have a feeling that this year will be amazing…..

I just hope to see Josh Harnett again :)

NYE 06'

Shit, 1st day of the year... OMG 2007... yikes!!!! It was a good day to start the year by eating at Hinchinbrook Pho... yummo ....

Last night was funny, too much alco... tooo many shots.... ... I was with my family for NYE... as always... I heart them SO much... they make my day... as much as I crack the shits with them... they still rock my world....
Tim came and celebrated with us which was mad fun... I got to kiss him when it hit 12... it was like Ryan and Marissa in OC season 1... no not really..... but yeah ....

Filo families normally spend NYE with each other.... I remember when I was younger I hated it so much... I wanted to party in the city... I dont give a f*ck about it these days..... NYE in the city is over rated....tooo many people in your way.... plus I dont really want to get hassled by a drunken mob of people.....

I hope that everyone had a really good NYE.... I hope 2007 will be a bigger and better year for all you people out there...

Happy New Year!!!!

I heart my sister
I heart Tim

I heart my cousins
