26 May Life Lately + Creative Talks / Art Sale 2.0
Hi, internet! I’m alive – well, sort of. Anyway, I have a few stories piled up so here’s a post on how (hermit) life’s been so far.
THE ROAD TO ABC
I’m working on two thesis-levels projects for the year (more on that soon). On one hand, I’m dying; on another, I’m grateful that I seemingly and diligently get by with my deadlines…so far. That would also explain why I rant about writing – I’ve always been insecure about my writing (I can only write for myself) so I can say my skills are being tested here. ~Wew~
Above: Snippets from travel spreads I’ve been working on. It was no easy feat; but I had loads of fun doing them!
Below: Shoot day for said project. Thank you to my awesome team for pulling it off! I’m so glad I got Aleyn to style the shoot too. She’s brilliant!
My favorite layouts were the “ephemera” flatlay (left) and shooting this collage of photos from my travels (right). So much nostalgia in one photo.
WORK-LIFE BALANCE ATTEMPTS
I’m so happy Kaila came over last week. I’ve been missing our bonding sessions ever since I came back from Japan last April. We finally got to spend a day together despite our busy scheds while she’s on vacation in Manila. We spent the afternoon working and we had a fun washi swap session together with Koko at night. 🙂 Yep, that washi stash up there is pretty intense!
Last Friday, my neighbor and best friend Den surprised me with this tent set-up. I only told her “Hey let’s have a tita night and catch a 90s film together, are you game?” and then she does this hipster camp inside her bedroom…a bit similar to our camping days when we were younger. Some things never change. Haha.
I had to work last weekend for a class. It was fun, though! These students were super game and I loved their energy. Until the next #LearnbyABC workshop!

PARKFEST PH KALESA INSTALLATION
Speaking of events, I’m painting on a kalesa this week as part of Parkfest PH. The event will be at Nayong Pilipino (Orchidarium beside National Museum) on May 28-29. Hope you could come! The team is aiming to restore Nayong Pilipino and revive it to make it a go-to park again. 🙂
I’ll be there on May 28 so if you’d like to meet me, drop by!
