As tagged by Aia, here are the 10 things about me, if you care to read. (It took me a while to post this because I felt it was very egoistic of me to do this tagging game haha! But for the fun of it, g!)
1. Being left-handed, I always have a difficulty putting nail polish on my left nails. So most of the time, I leave it without nail polish while my right hand nails have one.2. I sleep at 9am the next day during my free time because i’m up the whole night watching everything there is to watch (films, series, make up tutorials, parodies—anything)3. I fill my hand with doodles occasionally4. I sort of have this fear/anxiety of being left alone with a person, even if we’re friends. It makes me act awkwardly.5. Butterflies scare me more than other insects, especially the big ones.6. I am the only Chinese-looking/chinky-eyed person in the family, and I’ve always thought I’m adopted.7. I cut a portion of my hair to the roots once when I was 11 because I thought it was never growing longer than it should. Of course I was wrong. But the little spikes of hair looked ugly as it grew so I continued cutting it to the roots till I was 14. Through years of cutting, more strands of hair were cut accidentally with it so there were more spikes. Since then people in school and friends made fun of me (I joined them making fun of myself too). Haha! Good times.8. I don’t talk much. I probably spend 60% of my day in silence.9. Every person from an exclusive school for girls would probably understand me for this, but I think my “first love” was a girl. Haha!
10. It took me an hour to finish this list. My life is not that interesting, sorry!

Yardstick Coffee (My new favorite place)

A Plant.
How I wish I were a plant—a real one. Plants stay still at one corner, they live like that, and I’m envious (seriously). There’s one thing I realized about myself: I am more of a follower than a leader. I cannot lead people, I cannot handle passivity (though I am also passive myself), and I am more of a listener that a speaker. Which is why being the Creative Team Head for two different organizations stresses the shit out of me. What hurts more is that I head a few people—around 3-4, and I am already panicky and anxious. Most of the time I like doing things all by myself, I am not great with teams. I wish there was a button somewhere in me that activates a whole different personality where I would become a confident extrovert that everybody listens to.
P.S. Somehow there’s a calming effect to have a small plant living with you inside the bedroom. I bought this plant recently and I’m planning to buy more soon!

For the love of sweet coffee, I came up with a life goal recently. That is to visit and explore every third wave coffee shop out there, both local and international, and with different people. Right now I’m starting to go to the ones near where I live. Hopefully I’ll have the drive to continue this (since I’m bad at personal projects)!

Chen Photoshoot (An Agnes x Vince x Chen Collab)

It took me months to have this roll developed! It’s so hard to find time between my org responsibilities and academics. Sometimes I wonder why I’m such an overachiever, taking more responsibilities even if I have lots already at hand. But nevertheless, I love how this photo shoot turned out! To more photo shoots with Vince and Chen (and Willmark and Matt soon!)

Posting the last photos for My Summer in a Roll

On days when I overslept and missed work, i’m usually at home doing nothing. This was probably my last opportunity to bum around so I took advantage of every moment, savored it while I can. Haha! (Also I didn’t have enough money to go out)

  • First photo: trying out my new sneakers
  • Second: We got into interior design all of a sudden so we decided to decorate our dining room with hues of browns—my favorite color!
  • Third: Just wasting a frame
  • Fourth: Photographed my sister’s back
  • Fifth: Wasting another frame
  • Sixth: New blue wallpaper + my sprocket rocket that I haven’t used for a long time

So there, that’s the end of my summer in a roll! I honestly suck at blogging, I can’t keep up with what I started. I don’t think i’m going to start a new personal project for a while, lol. But for the new followers, thank you for following me!! Let’s be friends!

My Summer in a Roll - Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Going to a different place during summer is great, but going to two or more different places in one summer is the dream! This trip was spent mostly on snorkeling and a lot of swimming (and a lot more of eating). Too bad we weren’t able to tour the place much, but I got reeeeally tan and I loved it so much I might stay in this color for a while! (Not to brag really, but sometimes I don’t get why being white is the standard beauty here in the Philippines when brown skin is super beautiful!)

My Summer in a Roll - Internship

On days when I’m not on vacation, I am at work. It was advertising that I wanted to be in initially, but for some reason I ended up in production—which I really loathed. I hate that it takes so long to finish, and you’re stuck at one location until the actors get the scenes perfect (which takes hours). I hate how it starts at 5:30am and ends at 4am the next day. Other people might find it cool but not me! Although I was lucky enough to have kind and fun bosses. I got to experience using a real clapper, and I got to witness shooting in real green screen (chroma)!

P.S. The photos above are the studio set for a children’s show.
