our garden.

It's been months since  I last when to out little farm. I can't believe it's been four years since my parents started to develop our one and a half hectare of land. It used to be so plain. There were just these seedlings of banana, mangosteen, avocado, mangoes, pomelo,durian, and flowers. Lots and lots of flowers. Then they grew. More flowers came. More seedlings came, and it's like this abundant garden.

I'm proud of my parents.

Our fruits are delicious and of the best quality. Our flowers are beautiful, though sometimes I get that overcrowded feeling. Who knew they'd all become so big?

Here are a few of them, as I was practicing my photography skills.

I don't know what this is called. Testament to my lack of horticultural knowledge. 
Calachuchi. One of my favorite flowers. I said this would be the flower who'd grace my wedding, so my mom planted them. It's not gonna happen until 10 years later, though. And who says this is a flower for the dead?! And I happen to like its smell.
A breed of yellowbell. But it's not actually yellow is it? Notice the star shaped center. Cute, right?
A gumamela that only blossoms when exposed to sunlight. It's really big, and not just because of the picture.
I love the effect of sunlight.

I'd like to say photography is my hobby. I like things pretty, and what better way to make it stay pretty than by photographing it. And i just LOVE taking pictures of my dogs, Whitney and Mobius.

That was Mobius. She's the very definition of Omega-dog.

And that was Whitney. She's the Alpha-dog to Mobius's Omega-dog. But only because Mobius is the lowest of all dogs. But I love her still. Whitney's also the more photogenic. She thinks she's Alpha, what do you expect? And isn't this such a great portrayal of a dying dog? Lord knows how my family wants to kill her for being such a bully.

But she's really adorable. A typical dog that just wants to have fun and fill her stomach and be cuddled.

25 things about me.

1. One of the happiest moments of my life was in Grade 3, when I learned that we were allowed to borrow books from the library.(1st graders and 2nd graders weren't allowed).And the first book I borrowed was Bobbsey Twins. *bookworm spazzing*

2. I love collecting notebooks. Notebooks with cute stationary, with a cute cover, with cute paper. I've been seeing a lot of these lately, and I'm frustrated that I can't afford them!

3. All my passwords in different websites are the same. It's also my motto. *Hint: It's a song title. ;)

4. I got to say that I really loved God from the bottom of my heart when I was 18. Truth to tell, I was waiting for the time when I can say that, and it came.

5. I want to learn pottery. And no, it's not because of Yi Jung from Boys Over Flowers.

6. I'm thinking of opening a dress shop one day here in Marbel, so that people here can dress better have chic gowns. My brand will be "Happy Caprice". hohohoh.

7. It doesn't matter if I'm poor there. I just want to live in Italy!

8. If I could live in an anime world, I'd want to live in Nodame Cantabile's world. As a pianist.

9. I think I only just fleeted through my 18 years. But by 2008, I had goals in mind, and that's when I felt I started to live.

10. Just because I'm quiet, doesn't mean I have nothing to say.

11. With point 10 in mind, I still prefer writing, and that's when I can be heard.

12. My alltime favorite American Idol is David Cook. Kris Allen is a distant distant second. ;p

13. I love taking quizzes.

14. I used to think that I hate cooking. But when i saw people enjoying what I cooked, I started to regret I didn't take HRM in the first place.

15. BTW, the only things I know how to cook are spaghetti and leche flan. My methods of cooking are confined to reheating canned goods, frying and barbecuing. heheh.

16. Aside from time travel, a superpower that I would really like to have, is the power of persuasion (Like the girl in Heroes season 1). Whatever I say, people have to do. mwahahaaha!

17. I think carefully on what I'm going to say. It's a habit that's hard to break.

18. I'm afraid of spiders. Especially the big hairy ones that pop up out of nowhere. Spiders cannot EVER touch me.

19. I'm very openminded. My beliefs and opinions are influenced by many ideas.

20. Oftentimes I thikn up likely situations where I imagine how it's going to play out and the clever things I would say, but probably won't.

21. I don't have a bank account.

22. When my attention tunes out, I doddle on the corner of my notebook/ textbook. I can't help it.

23. Even if my dog didn't take a bath, I still hug her like a living stuffed toy.

24. I don't like getting angry in public. But I do get angry. I even have an ugly angry face. Ask my brother. ;p

25. I prefer taking public vehicles to riding our car.
