Super Show 3 in Araneta Coliseum

"Hi dear Seoulmate, I was enchanted to meet you! / I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home"

Hahaha at last, I saw Super Show 3 in Araneta Coliseum, Philippines last February 26, 2011.

Sadly, I did hesitate to bring my DSLR fearing it would get confiscated for it is prohibited but as I arrived in the concert area, I saw many brought their cameras. I envied them and really got frustrated. Raaah, won't believe Admin people again! The security did not even check my bag! They did not even bother to look if I bring a bag! Arrrrrrg!!! All day I was thinking how to sneak in my bulky camera until I decided to leave it at home! I should have taken the risk... but oh well... done is done.

Anyway, here’s my solution --- will draw some until my memory remembers the details!!!

Here’s Kyuhyun, wearing the all-white military outfit on their opening act, performing Sorry Sorry.

And him in bell pepper costume for Cooking Cooking number. Waaa he's so adorable!

But special thanks to my cellphone camera which is also okay to capture my favorite moments, yey! I bought a big blue glowstick for PhP300! Okay, I'm suck a freak hahaha! but I did enjoy the show so much. Marie - my college classmate and her sister joined me watching and I like our spot. Even though we encountered some hassles due to super fanatics who tried to steal seats from people. They were claiming that they were in correct row yet their tickets were lost so they could not remember their exact seat number. Grrr... Until the security went to our area to check us and those fake people, left their spots right away. Tsk!

Curly Listening 02.24.11 Rhythms of Grace

"Rhythms of Grace" is the 4th track of "Aftermath" ---
Hillsong United's  12th full-length album and second studio album which was released last week.


Verse 1
My life is a light for Your cause
My will laid aside for Your call
And reserved are the depths of my heart
Only for You

Verse 2
I'm caught in the rhythms of grace
They overcome all of my ways
Realigning each step everyday
To live for Your glory

Chorus 1
There's none beside You God
There's none beside You God

Verse 3
You're there in the dark of the night
While holding the sun and it's light
Through the triumph and trials alike
There's no-one beside You

Verse 4
Your voice called the stars by their name
'Cause You whispered them all to their place
To testify to Your wonder and praise
Both now and forever

Chorus 2
There's none beside You God
There's none beside You God
I love my life to shine Your light
'Cause there's none beside You God

No eye has seen
No ear has heard
The depths of Your love, Lord
No mind can fathom
The love You deserve
How great You are

today is Tuesday and I am happy

I am curly and so was Kyuhyun

Searching photos of Cho Kyuhyun with his epic curly hair was tedious until I found Zhou Mi’s dog opposite to Kyu. This is really adorable and comic at the same time.

Anyway, Zhou Mi is a member of Super Junior-M. Haha fan much? I do not know. I am actually thinking of selling my Upper Box B (center) ticket for SS3 concert on Saturday at Araneta. I am getting annoyed with random activities their fans are preparing. I am having an idea that it’s either I would enjoy the show or be a total kill joy. I just want to see Kyuhyun perform, e! huhuhu and I still do not have a digital compact camera to bring to the concert.

New music video of Super Junior-M was also released yesterday, called "Perfection".

and You loved

Never been so sure of my life
Until Your word woke me up
I was dying of blameworthiness
Cursing my veins of sins
I am undeserving
But You never stop
You love me at all times
I live to know Your name
And speak the truth
For You are my life
I surrender
You are my joy
You are my strength
I am nothing without You, Jesus
I am saved.

Here are my few creations inspired by Hillsong United’s artworks posted on their blog.

Sketchzophrenic: Inspired by Une Sardine À Rio

It’s midnight and I had nothing to do. Actually, I have a lot of ideas of what to do yet I am procrastinating again until I saw Une Sardine À Rio’s Spring-Summer 2011 collection. The movements of the kids are so free and charming. Later, I opened Adobe Illustrator and started tracing a girl touching the balloon. Then for the first time, I tried using the brush tool and played with colors. So here is the end result of dullness with watercolor effect. I love this hahaha! I want to create more ♥

How to have a Happy and Blessed Birthday: Part 4

It’s been almost a week since my birthday happened and here are some photos and stories of how I survived that weekend.

As you’ve heard, our scheduled Hot Air Balloon visit in Clark was cancelled and I ran out of “lakad” to attend to for I already informed my friends and family that I won’t be available on my birthday.

From Friday night until Saturday lunch time, I was struggling of what to do and where to go. I called my little niece who is 7 years old to join me go somewhere, I was thinking of Museong Pambata, National Museum or just watch a cartoon movie with her. But then she told me that she could not for she already agreed to go to church with her mom. And so I really got disappointed and again, I was in the middle of nowhere though I was done taking a bath and flat iron pressing my hair. Hence the result of boredom, I took some photos of myself, see How to have a Happy and Blessed Birthday: Part 3.
Considering my boredom, disappointment and frustration, I was also pressured of a friend’s advice regarding positive-assertive on what could happen after lunch.

Define POSITIVE --- confident in opinion or assertion; fully assured

Define ASSERTIVE --- confident and direct in claiming one's rights or putting forward one's views

Hence, POSITIVELY ASSERTIVE is to be sure about your disposition but/and still hopeful.

Hmmm I am now not sure how to define it but one thing is for sure, I got pressured to think positive things and I managed to leave my room, our house. I was still unsure where to go, I just took a jeepney going to Cubao and I was considering of going to Manila to visit Museong Pambata or the National Museum but it’s already 3:30PM, I probably would arrived there late since it’s also traffic. And then somewhere in Cubao, the jeepney was not moving in traffic anymore. I got off the jeepney and went straight to Cubao Expo... the first and last time I went there was last August 2010, see my entry: Manila Sound Vision. That Saturday afternoon, I visited some stores until I saw interesting shoe designs at Mark R store. I saw from their window display interesting shoes designs like a heeled patent brogue and colorblock boat shoes for ladies. I purchased a pair of boat shoes for PhP 1,500 – discounted price from PhP 2,300. I love the good combination of colors and materials used plus Mark R shoes were made in Marikina.

And then I went to Ali Mall and I decided to eat at Pizza Hut. I was not able to eat breakfast and lunch that day and so I was really starving. I ordered their 3-Cheese Ravioli and a Caesar Salad. I got busy doodling and writing stuffs in my planner while waiting for my food. I tried thinking of happy thoughts and blessings. I managed to be optimistic and cheerful that moment. And before I finished my food, I asked a waitress confidently if they have something to offer to a birthday celebrant and she said, they have ice cream and I told her, “It’s my birthday today”! She was surprised and smiled at me. Hahaha that was the first time in my life that I asked for a birthday treat from someone, hilarious! She asked for my name and later, she returned with a special ice cream. I got so happy! All the staffs were smiling at me, I am sure of mixed up thoughts running through their minds. I finished the ice cream, paid my bill, gave a tip and left Pizza Hut with a grin.

After that, I went to SM Cubao, looking for some dresses and tried some. I was feeling better. Then I checked my clock, it’s already 6PM and my mother just texted me to go to church to get the key from our Pastora/my Ate. As I went out of the mall, I saw a beautiful dusk and took some photos again! I thanked God for that beautiful sky; my day was blessed despite of unwanted things that happened.

As I was on my way to church, my mother texted me of what flavor of cake I loved to have for father would buy one at Red Ribbon, I just told her that I want a cheese or in mango flavor. Since I was a kid, I was always requesting for a chocolate cake or Black Forest.

I went to church and my Ate already left, but I got the key from another member. I went home and I my parents also bought palabok other than the cake. My parents sang a happy birthday song to me and prayed for me.

I went online again to thank everyone who greeted me at Facebook and I felt happy, satisfied. That’s how I spent my birthday that day.

And on Sunday, my little niece gave me a gift -- a big paper flower. My Ate showed me a video of my niece creating an art piece for me and I was really touched. She’s really sweet and thoughtful. She said in the video that she was not able to accompany me since she’s preparing the gift, she’s busy hahaha.

And on Wedneday, I got the newest addition to my giraffe collection--the black and white flexi-wooden giraffe. And now they are a trio. My three musketeers. And they are all placed on top of my CPU at the office!

Thank God I am now 25. Thank you for everyone who remembered my birthday! Thank you all who I became friends with and became a part of me. I am better now because of you shiny happy people and good Lord. May we spend more years and be positively assertive!

why NOT?

why so positive?
  why so kindhearted?
    why not disappointed?
      i wonder, why not?

How to have a Happy and Blessed Birthday: Part 2

I've been so excited to see the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark Field, Pampanga since I learned about it last month (see previous blog entry here. I counted the days and so happy to go there on my birthday.

My photography club members and officers at MDPC agreed to join the event to capture special programs but on February 11, I received a text message from our VP regarding the moving of our scheduled trip to Clark from the night of February 11 (Friday) to February 12 (Saturday/my birthday) and would witness the event on February 13 (Sunday) due to flooding in the area. I was disappointed and got really sad, actually until now.

But then thank God for the wisdom. Since tomorrow morning, I’ve experienced several situations wherein I had uncertainties whether I could really make it to meet the assembly time on Friday night. Plus, my things were not yet packed-up and I would have to leave the office at 6PM then go home to get ready. Not much time left for me. Slightly panicked! But for sure, God already put my plans in order and so let His will be done too.

And since I could not make it to attend the last day of the Festival since I should not be absent in our church for we have a special Valentine activity, here are random finds from Etsy shop – hot air balloons!!!

(1) Bridges and Balloons Moleskine by shoofly  (2) Hot Air Balloons Wall Decals by chocovenyl  (3) Hot Air Balloon Pendant Necklace by EclecticBijoux  (4) The Two of Us - 8x8 by elgarboart  (5) Checkered Vintage Hot Air Balloon Hand Stamped Tags Set of 6 by VintageDye  (6) Up, up and away digital print by beeskneesstudio  (7) Around the World, French Balloon 5x7 Art Print by numberninedream  (8) My Beautiful Balloon Necklace by mamaslittlebabies  (9) Float Away With Me - Box by Mmim

Plus, my very own artwork which I made starting 12:01AM of February 12, 2011. And today is my birthday, I am now 25 years old. I thank God for everything I experienced, people I met and loved, things I owned and lost, battles I fought, whether I won or failed and blessings I already thanked for and some I failed to share to others.

lyrics by Kitchie Nadal -- Same Ground

But still, I do not know what to do in the morning. I have some plans in my mind and I will pray for those later. And I might go solo, but it’s okay, especially now that I know how to enjoy!


Found this cute random illustrations at Stuff No-one Told Me blog by Alex Noriega.

How to have a Happy and Blessed Birthday: Part 1

Just got home from Kitchie Nadal's gig at Conspiracy Bar and Garden Cafe located on Visayas Avenue, Quezon City.

My first time to attend a gig, come to a bar, go solo to a place I am not familiar with and see Kitchie performed live! Yey! All these experiences were my birthday gifts to myself. One more day to go and I will turn 25. I pray that the Lord would protect me and guide me all the way.

Kitchie and her band performed great and I love the new songs they played. I am blessed through their music.

More pictures to follow!!!

Time to sleep, it's 2:49 AM already and will go to work later!!!
