It rained the whole day. I somehow felt antsy, seeing how the grass was already submerged in water making the garden look much like a swamp... but then indeed the Lord is sovereign. I jumped for joy as I was mopping and my dear friend Arbi told me that it stopped raining. Then he took this beautiful picture of the sky slowly clearing up and I saw the dark clouds floating away, and I could see a little bit of the blue sky.

Kindness and inspiration

Ayala Museum had an event last weekend called Inspire Everyday. The entrance to the museum was free, and there were pocket events that were ongoing throughout the day. I took this opportunity to learn how to commute to Makati and to be inspired through other people's art. I also got to see artworks that I've seen when I first went there!!

To enter the museum, we had to sign up for volunteer opportunities, so we left our contact details. I sure do hope to hear from them soon! I love such opportunities.

Natural Charcoal Pack

Just the other day, I spent two hours in Daiso. Yes, I am glad Daiso opened near where I live so I don't have to go far. I've been contemplating for months about trying out a facial product of theirs; I have my personal doubts when buying beauty products in a store that sells it really cheap, but I wanted to try it and I've seen reviews online, and I found positive feedback about it so I thought I'd give it a try.

I'm not really a beauty junkie of some sort though I do care about my skin, and I love using facial masks. I love buying those facial masks in Korean beauty shops and placing them inside the fridge then putting them on my face while studying. It relaxes my face since it's cold and I feel so refreshed after. I'm in this for the fun and for how affordable it is.

On creative pursuits

We had a Thanksgiving Fellowship for two camp committees yesterday. I had a great time, most especially while setting up the place with my friends. I learned a lot from them and I figured that it truly is nice to be surrounded with such creative friends. You will learn a lot and you encourage each other to pursue your craft. I think we all need the encouragement and guidance from fellow creative friends! There is a lot to learn and to improve on and I can only feel excited, motivated, and inspired to further cultivate my artistic passion.

CALIFORNIA: Take me home, country roads

One of the things I missed the most about traveling in California would be the mountain ranges that are visible from my left to right. I would see dry mountain ranges and hills and Joshua trees and cacti of different kinds and it's just so nice to be surrounded by those.

ZAMBALES: Nagsasa Cove

So much has happened in this trip, but when I got back home, I could truly say that I was genuinely happy. It was my first time for many things; camping, cooking food, trekking to the waterfalls, etc. I also got to meet such wonderful people. I loved the beach as well, it was shallow and the waves were strong and it felt great when it came crashing on our bodies.

ARIZONA: Grand Canyon

When I saw these amazing rock structures, I could not help but be struck with so much awe and gladness. Despite the scorching heat, it was still quite cold because of the continuous breeze that blew throughout our stay there. Seeing this vast scene made me feel so small in this earth, and I kind of like that feeling.

Flower shop

I was able to go inside a flower shop one morning in Oxnard, California. My day started out pleasantly as I was surrounded by so many kinds of flowers that I have not seen before. I wanted to buy some and bring them home, but I doubt that they would be able to take on the heat here in Manila. My goal someday is to be able to have my own garden wherein I can plant many different kinds of flowers and breed succulents.
