"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

free spirits

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.
--C.C. Scott

the other weekend was a walk-around-the-city/wall-climbing weekend spent with my friends from college.

p6peeps in manila: clownin' around
we used to be five, now we're six.

wall-climbing: the caterpillar way
whoohoo, i conquered my acrophobia again!

last weekend was lasingan/celebration weekend spent with four of my gal friends from high school. we had full bottles of bailey's irish cream, smirnoff red vodka, blueberry vodka cruiser, and san miguel super dry right in the living room of our friends' condo unit somewhere in malate... but nobody got drunk. pagka-walay challenge. maybe next time, kung inom lang ang among tuyo, mag-tanduay, anejo rhum, red horse og ginebra san miguel na lang mi! hehehe. click here for the related story. (warning: the link may take ages to open, but it's worth the wait. click refresh or reload if you don't see the entry for november 21.)

empty bottles and our trusty gadgets

portraits of a certified diligent student, hahaha!

i've finally seen her. she got most of her looks from my kuya -- from the hair, to the china eyes, to the lips -- and it's not just me talking, even her mother and her maternal grandparents say so.


mabait at maporma kung tulog

mataray at sobrang likot kapag gising

as of yesterday, she's only four days old, but oh my...when i laid my eyes on her, it was made clear to me that my bratty days are already numbered. yes, i'm going to be dethroned! she got the looks, the charm, and the attitude kaya wala talaga akong laban, hahaha.


  1. hala!!!! imoa gyud kuya ug nawong!!! ma-crush ng bayan gyud na imoang pag-umangkon val!!! LIWAT SA IYAAN.

  2. dako lagi inyo baby. she doesnt look 4 DAYS OLD! cutie! =D

  3. i'm sure when people at home will get to see her pics, they'll say the same thing -- pareho sila'g nawong ni kuya. heartthrob.

    her length at the time of birth: 51 cm. that's about 21 cm more than a foot rule.
