unsolicited dreams

In Fahrenheit 451, something a character remarked has been stuck in my mind lately.
The character said (paraphrase)
 "Most people are like burning embers, desiring to let go of whatever is contained within them,"
 And I cannot agree more with this statement.


 You can tell a lot of a person by
 What makes them laugh,
 What makes them cry,
 What keeps them up at night.


 Three songs to listen to tonight,
helping you contemplate your
things and themes
unsolicited dreams.



Always end your day on a happy note. Or at least a peaceful resignation.
"Don't let the sun go down on your anger,"

journalling and faith

One day I read something on Facebook.

"Lazy people talk about keeping a journal...Successful people journal daily,"
Ever since then, I made up my mind to journal my daily thoughts, no matter how tired I was at the end of the day, or how boring I felt my day was. (I used to do this almost everyday while in school/college) I must say, it's week two and the pages of my notebook are slowly getting filled. If you ask me, I really have no solid answer to the benefits of journaling, but writing is therapeutic for me. I find it such a pleasure to pen down what I go through in words. I am a nerd.
Also if you're living with Jesus I implore you to keep a journal of your walk with him. Write your rants, your gratitude, your dilemmas, your prayers. It will help you keep track of your faith.

Mondays feel like...

An epic sand dune growing inside the belly of a crystalline wave, about to break with dramatic might and sound on the shore.

Nah not really. But this is an epic picture by wave photography expert (if there ever was such a thing) by Clark Little.

Happy Monday!

Instagrams of the Week

I went to Wondermilk (the one at Citta Mall) yesterday night because the blonde was craving some non-existant chili cheese fries. 
The food was sublime, but the drinks are the weaknesses of Wondermilk.

A red brick wall in the shop. Those look like Instagrams. Instagramception!

Earlier this week, I was in the rare mood for love to draw. So I did a series of simple drawings called "Let's" where it's all about adventures in the simple things. As much as I want it to be, the stuff I made is not very whimsical because these things are stuff you can do over a weekend (Sailing, Origami, Assemble a bicycle).

Okay I gotta go now. It's my first Saturday without any plans made <3

Some days my hair is just fabulous and I want to share how it looks.

suffering silently

All the problems in the world exist to remind us that something better awaits.

I don't know the answer to suffering. Perhaps, the best answer can be put simply as "The answer to suffering lies not in the WHY, but in the WHOM."

Life is a mish-mash of good things and bad things. Bad things happen to good people. Good things also happen to bad people. God is fair. He does things to all people. There's no full reason or answer that the human mind can comprehend WHY he does these things; if there were, that mind would probably implode/explode because God's ways are higher than our ways.

Sometimes the best thing to do is to keep your mouth shut. I'm still learning to hold my tongue in a lot of situations in life, and I find that keeping silent is the best remedy for a lot of (self-centered) issues.

But if you want to rant, by all means please go ahead. Get things off your chest and rant your heart out. 

Just remember to come back to Him when you're done with it.


Some days I feel like very happy. Like, the most of this week.

The ad campaign

I just saw Iona's birthday party album by Aoki on Facebook. Maybe I'm biased, but the whole album looks like an ad campaign. 

Just look at that picture! The emotions! The candid-dity!  

Maybe it was the hipster dress code. I don't know. Haha! But it does make for a very pretty picture album, don't you think?
