Mapapa-Wow Ka Na Lang

Before having dinner, I decided to visit the nearest Mercury Drug Store (which is around 15 to 20-minute tricycle ride away) to buy some insect/pest chalk. I feel so uneasy whenever I see ants in our room and it’s been three days since start seeing them again. Someone ate Whattatops and peanuts inside our room when I already banned any food in here¬†ūüė†ūüė†ūüė†.

On my way home, I was riding a tricycle when the tricycle in front of us (STOD 8602) used his signal light. I suddenly realized that it’s actually the first time that I saw a tricycle driver use signal lights before making any turn. I am actually amazed for a few seconds that I actually focused on all the other tricycles that I saw if they are using signal light or if they have any signal lights at all. Why amazed? Because for my 27 years of existence (with 25 years of it spent on living on the same community), this is actually the first time that I saw someone (a tricycle driver, specifically) use their damn signal lights before turning. Yeah, no big deal.

It is a pretty busy hour with most of the people trying to get home for dinner so during the remaining 10-minute ride, there are more or less 50 tricycles that I saw. Only 2 used their signal lights (it already includes the first tricycle that caught my attention) and 5 doesn’t even have signal lights at all.

I started thinking on how does these TODAs (tricycle operator and drivers’ association) regulate or check their members. Maybe since they’re only driving in barangay roads, they find using signal light/turn lights as unnecessary. Do they even get caught for that? I don’t think so.

It’s a choice, not a chance

I saw this photo in one of my friends’ Facebook profile and I totally agree with what this guy said.

Let me share you guys something.

Our relationship started with a “trial” stage. Both of us just came out of toxic relationships and I said “let’s try to be together for six months and if we’re still together by that time, we’ll decided if we’ll be serious”. We just celebrated our 6th anniversary last April 4. We chose to be together.

When I was pregnant with our first child,

Just (Another) Quick One : Hobbies,  Passion and Being a Mom

I was looking at my Instagram feed when I saw this photo by one of my high school friends. An aspiring photographer who takes above average photos (not that I have high standards) and he,  just like me,  loves using nature as his subject.

I went on looking at his photos when I realized that I used to love taking photos and looking at nature photography.  Now,  I just love looking at them.

I know most parents experience this at one point especially stay-at-home moms like me. ¬†That moment when you suddenly just miss doing those things that you’re terribly passionate about, ¬†like photography for instance. You can feel the passion, ¬†the excitement and the anticipation thinking when you can do the things you used to do. Somehow imagining what you would do and where you’d go to when you get the chance. For a minute, ¬†you’re flying there planning with a little too much bit of excitement.

InkTober Day2

InkTober Day2

I’m trying to incorporate Inktober with my other “daily goals” so here.

I’ve been trying to learn Japanese for quite a while now and I’m trying to practice using colored pencils as well. ¬†Doing it this way is like hitting three birds with one stone.

I noticed that I’m ¬†starting to get a hang of how to use colored pencils with layering colors to get what color I want. *tap on shoulder* Well, ¬†I was supposed to do a “sunrise” effect like the picture below but… ¬†I messed up, I don’t know how to fix it anymore.

Also, the space between between them was supposed to be a body of water but I’m not sure to even start it.

Baby steps, baby steps.
