I just want to share some videos I recorded using my HTC One X. These are my experience while I was at the top of the Wall Of Intramuros. This Wall is located within Manila and was established during the Spanish colonial period to protect the city from foreign invasion. It was heavily damaged during the Battle of Manila during the Second World War and glad that it was prioritized for reconstruction by the former First Lady Imelda Marcos during the Marcos regime. Here you go.

This if very common here in Manila. This Piso Bridge is detachable because it is only present whenever there is flood. The people who assemble the bridge are the one who collected coins or PISO from the people who wants to pass through. It is made of planks of wood that is why it is detachable anytime. Here is the best example of PISO Bridge, which I took last September 23, 2012, and it was a rainy Sunday...at the intersection of Rizal Avenue and Recto..known as AVENIDA, one of the busiest intersection in Manila.

Hard to say or agree to this one, because me too... love shopping. Few minutes ago, I watched again this certain movie " Confessions of a Shopaholic". A friend of mine lend me her book about this movie and unfortunately I can't wait...and as soon as I finished chapter 1, I decided not to read the whole book (but don't get me wrong, I love reading books, but I THINK this story would be better and will be appreciated visually.) so I watched the movie instead.
The movie focuses on shopping, being a shopaholic, feeling of acquiring things, and being addictive to shopping for Clothes. The movie, did touch my heart. In fact, I love this part where Luke ask Rebecca ,"Why do you shop?" and Rebecca replied with all her heart..."When I shop The World gets better, The World is better...and it is not anymore...and I need to do it again." I agree with Rebecca to this one. I (Sometimes / Always) shop to make my world better and needless to say...comforting
But on the other hand... somehow the movie gave a negative impact about FASHION. Is Fashion not a necessity? Is Fashion considered only as Vanity? I just hoped the writer didn't see Fashion this way. Please.
I am an aspiring Fashion Designer, and of course I am looking forward to be known. Not just to be rich...but be known for my designs. Creating A DESIGN for clothing is NOT as EASY as what other people think. It's 2012 and imagine how many designers (since then) had created designs already for clothes until present...and I am one of these new designer who carefully NOT TO REPEAT it again and trying hard to be innovative by thinking carefully and by being sensitive to other people's needs for their clothes. Another thing is that...since I have limited income and most of the times I want a dress but my great taste for it equates to its worth. I know you might say life is unfair...Unfair for those who can't afford. On the other side, the designer deserved good pay for their creations. And this leads me to having my own Glam House. I started to create my own designs for myself and lately I realized that I would love to do the same to others, so I opened my own fashion store,few minutes away from my work. The Glam House is like a big closet for me. I get all the stuff I like as if I am buying all theses fashion things for myself. Gowns, Dresses, Shoes, Accessories...name it! It's a fashion depot that I would like to share with my Co-Shopaholic out there, But of course, all stuff in the house are marked in a reasonable price.
If you will ask me...Shopaholic is Economics. Alfred Marshall says, Economics is a study of man in the ordinary business of life. It enquires how he gets his income and how he uses it. Thus, it is on the one side, the study of wealth and on the other and more important side, a part of the study of man. Even Lionel Robbins defined the subject (Economics)...perhaps the most commonly accepted current definition, that Economicsis a science which studies human behaviour as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses.
And being a Shopaholic is a human behavior. Another individual player in the market. An ACTIVE ONE, and It is normal and it defines Economics. Imagine, what would happened if we don't need anything? What would happened if we don't want anything at all?
Again, Shopaholic is not just for fashion, but also for other things that satisfy our wants and needs...and I guess anything that makes our day.

...yes I unintentionally bite my apple in a heart shape form and didn't notice it until an office mate of mine told me excitedly that it does look like a heart and I should took a picture of it. And so I did. Here you go, you tell me what you think.

I don't need to know more about a person, but when I look at them and get this sudden urge to paint him or her, there's no stopping me to do my art interpretation. Here, when I saw this pretty woman, from the first issue of Rogue Magazine, I can't help myself not to include Cristina Garcia on my list of subjects to paint. I did some art pieces of her, and this is one of those. Hope you like it.
