2011 Goals and Projects

Happy new year, happy new decade a couple of days late! I had this whole collage of self-portraits from 2010 almost done on Photoshop the night of the 31st ’til I realized that there was no way I was going to be able to finish that AND cobble up a decent blog entry in twenty minutes. Besides, who in their right mind would spend New Year’s eve on the internet, reading my blog, anyway?

So 2010 was pretty uneventful but maybe I’ll save that for my next entry (aka where I post photos from my New Year’s). Today, I write about stuff I hope to do in the next 362 days. These are not resolutions, mind you… and no, I’m not about to blather on about how stupid and useless resolutions are. I think resolutions are fun to write down but I’ve outgrown the whole thing. What I need are goals, not just resolutions (because without the former, the latter is useless… I think?). I’m keeping this list simple so they’d be more doable. I know people say you should shoot for the stars or moon yadda yadda but I want to keep things realistic.

On to them goals… and projects!!!

Dear Reader

I hope you like cats because I have, for you, a handful of photos of my/our cats from when I was at my folks over the weekend! It’s been a while since I last saw all of them and I hate that I have somehow developed an allergy for cat fur! I have to make sure I keep them away from my face and that I wash my hands with soap and water right after cuddling them. Why can’t I be allergic to something else, like IDK, a cabinet lock?!



Christmas Cheer Is For Losers

Dressed in black because I hate da world.

I am fully aware that Christmas is over (nuts how 2010 went by quickly, yeah?) but I was too busy to publish this post last week (Christmas rush! Christmas… things! Christmas frenzy!) and I was internet-less over the weekend (I survived, surprise surprise).

Just a quick post as I am in dire need of blog entries. If it’s not painfully obvious yet, I am in lovelovelove with these boots (the same way that I am in lovelovelove with contemporary furniture). I’ve probably mentioned that a few million times in recent entries and I will probably keep saying it every time I wear them (provided I remember to snap a photo).

Snapshots From Sagada, Part 3

Day 3 was also our last day in Sagada and as expected, none of us wanted to leave. We dreaded the long bus ride home and having to go back to hot and noisy Manila aka REALITY. But all good things must come to an end and we tried to squeeze in as much as we could in the few hours we had. The plan was to wake up early (6am, maybe) and try to make it to Kiltepan View Point.

That did not happen.


A small bookstore across Shamrock Cafe (where we had dinner Saturday night).

A Harry Potter Christmas

Here at dotPH, we have themed annual Christmas parties. Two thousand eight’s theme (the year I joined the company) was “Masquerade”; 2009’s was Plants vs Zombies. This year, we had three options to choose from: Red Carpet (I can’t imagine us girls running around and playing games in evening dresses, eek), Horror Night, and Hogwarts. Hogwarts won!

Like always, our team (Creatives) was put in charge of decorations. Here are a few photos of what we came up with.
