That’s me when I was 5 and that folk wearing red is Dra. Carmen Alejo-Azarcon, my grandmother
Protective- the word that best describes her. Strict in many ways, she insured her family what she wanted for them, to be always out of harm’s way, be respected and not to be maltreated by anyone by any means. I would always hear her yell but I never got scared of her. She may looked overpowering and intimidating in the eyes of many, but this woman had this soft side of her that was very passionate when it comes to the people she loved.
She always looked beauteous. She always wore heavy pair of gold earrings, together with her other antique jewelries. She is described ‘Donya' by some since she would always show off her beauty with extra gleam from her luxurious accessories.
She had been a faithful servant of God, she was a Church person and perhaps that’s the reason behind she was really blessed.
There are only few things I remember about her but I am more than sure that I would have said a lot more if only I could remember all the things she did for me when I was in my toddler years and lived with her in the same house.
Thank you Lola Nanay for everything, We love you. 
Rest In Peace and Guide us as we live here in earth.

This is my mom, Alpha. I love her more than anything in this world. She has been always there for me no matter what. I see myself in her and I feel she sees herself in me too. She may not tell this to me but I know we really have a lot of things in common, even the all the deepest and darkest side. And I’m not scared of her knowing all things I’ve been keeping in my heart because I know she’ll understand everything.
She has been hurt a lot of times but she still wears a smile as she wakes up every morning. I am here to cheer up while she longs for something taken from her.

I know it’s OA that I am relating this song with what’s happening in my life right now. I’m going back in the Philippines on Monday, finally. I know I’ve been staying here for about two months now but I miss my life there. It’s not that I’m not enjoying, I do but then I wanna be with my mom and friends. Life here is a little boring, maybe because I don’t have friends here yet and I can’t go out by myself and do the things I used to do back home. I know it is selfish to feel excited, but I’m sad too thinking about my dad and sister. I already have this separation anxiety, especially with my sister, I’m afraid of losing our closeness with each other. I’m gonna miss her so much.

I’m going back to PH to study and will spend summer 2013 here again. 

LIFE is complicated

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

The Vegas Trip

We had a weekend-long Birthday celebration of my sister who just turned 17 years old last week in the Sin City, Las Vegas.

Satisfactorily, Vegas is a really pleasureful place. Its Architecture is outstanding and that makes the views very interesting. I’m out of words to describe how it fascinated me. I fell in love with it the first time I saw the city. I liked how the hotels and casinos compete for customers through their Architecture and for mimicking several distinguished tourist attractions around the world.

[Monumental Structure of a pharoah from Luxor; Excalibur; New York New York; Indoor garden of Bellagio; Paris, Golden Nugget/Fremont Strip; Stratosphere]

As far as I remember we also visited the MGM Grand and the Caesar’s Palace, the hotel of the guys from Hangover!

It was said that Vegas is the brightest spot on Earth when seen from space. Obviously, I can never prove that but I say that the lights inside and out of most of the buildings were beyond brilliant. However, its sweltering temperature annoyed me to the full extent. Aside from the fact it’s a desert, the heat from sun on daytime is same as what we have in Manila, and at night, the heat from the lights warms up the entire place. Las Vegas experiences extreme summer and extreme winter.

The Sin City. Vegas gratifies and indulges one with all the sinful pleasures you can ever imagine. Sex-related services are really exposed even on the streets and in front of the youngsters. Smokes anywhere. Good thing I don’t have asthma. The only place that was smoke-free is our hotel room. It was hard to fight the itch, if you know what I mean. Booze are sold from corner to corner and by all means, you can imbibe anytime of the day and anywhere. Gambling, of course will never be out of the list, it’s the top reason why Vegas is a hot spot. There were too many slot machines and I could not imagine the cost of their electric bills.  

For all that, we went there for a wholesome tour around the city and I’m glad I was able to visit it during my stay here. Hooray for the experience though I didn’t get to enjoy the thrill of being there to gamble and win or even lose some heavy loads of golds. Well aside from I’m not yet legal to play, I have no money to blow! Maybe soon, very very soon!

PS

This is a late post. Just because last week was the laziest and most boring week ever, well in the span of my stay here. I became a couch potato for a 5 days. 

Sabaw post is sabaw. Awkward ending. BOW

I know I’ve done countless mistakes being your daughter and even hurt your feelings a lot of times. Even without me asking for apology, I know you will always forgive me. But this time, I admit my guilt. Sorry for all the pain I’ve caused you, to the times that i disrespected you and said some things that I didn’t really mean, and most especially for all the times when you felt that I didn’t appreciate you and the things you did for me. I love you mommy and words can’t express how much grateful I am to have you as my mom. And in return for all your effort, I promise you that someday you will be proud of me. 
This may be late, but this is the only thing I know that can cheer you up!
See you soon, beautiful!

a bitter pill to swallow

I met dad’s best friend since 3rd year High School last Saturday when we had a party here at home. He is a director of The Simpsons, Family Guy, etc. his job is really awesome, and big time. He was a graduate of BS Architecture in Mapua Institute of Technology, Dad and him were classmates even in College. He never got to practice Architecture after he graduated.

I am a frustrated digital artist. I can say i have the skills, though not brilliantly good, when it comes to art since love for art is in our blood. Though no one really chose Art to put into a career except for those who took up Architecture, including myself. Digital Arts is one of the fields I want to gain mastery in, ever since. My knowledge about it is not even a spoonful. All i know now is just self-taught and it’s sad that i don’t get to practice that much. Tiwala lang sa sarili, lahat nadadaan sa practice.

Dad knew about the career i wanted to take right before I took up entrance exams in college. Architecture was a second choice for me but he unintentionally brainwashed me. If not Architecture, I would have taken Multimedia Arts. Right now, I just wanna know why he refused to send me to an Art School. 

I like Architecture, and I’m glad I’m taking it. I’m excited to graduate and see what I’ll become in the future.Two years more! May God’s will be done. 

PS, im working on that overweight cheeks i have there.

MOA Eye

I was essited to try the MOA Eye (the latest attraction in MOA) But I decided not to since we just came from a seafood dinner and i was really full, afraid of throwing up in the gondola. My family went on a ride while I took pictures. Anyway, they were a little of disappointed about the ride. They said it’s not worth the price.
