It’s a pretty amazing feeling to see my published work. I haven’t done a lot of shoots, and even more so now because of work. 

I was thrilled  and nervous for this project because my friend, Adrian G. invited me to do makeup. Super happy that my friend, Ica M. was the model so I also felt comfy doing the makeup hihi. The stylist, Domz was incredible too, featuring pieces from great Filipino designers Nere Ku, Sassa Jimenez, Jaggy Glarino, Mike Dela Pena, Aris Pico and Fanny Serrano.

It was a new thing for me, because I’m usually requested to make the face look matte. For this shoot, I had to give her shine and gloss. This was one of the messiest and icky-est feeling makeup I have done. Hahaha!

For the longest time, I have been afraid to color my drawings because I felt like I have inadequate coloring skills. (Not joking)

Then I stumbled upon this quote:

Focus on making yourself better, not on thinking that you are better.”

This is now my life motto.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.

Inasmuch as I’d like to keep my Tumblr positive, I cannot continue looking at the light without eventually hurting my eyes.

None of this is easy. Never will I be numb to sugarcoated words and painful circumstances.

I am distracted and grateful. Grateful that I will not face reality for a while.. But it’s creeping in now. It is definitely sinking in.

The truth is that everything breaks and cannot be mended. It’s either you become something better or something worse. How do you fix something worse?

That’s what scares me the most.


Each of us is a star. Sometimes we shine with the rest, sometimes we twinkle on our own. Sometimes when we least know it, we make someone&#8217;s wish come true.

From which stars have we fallen to meet each other here? ― Friedrich Nietzsche
