Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

Last night in Baguio (summer capital of the Philippines).  The photo was taken last October and looking at the shiny floor of the small but cozy bar/restaurant, I found the sky below with the TWINKLE reflections.


Christmas TWINKLE! Photo captured in EDSA Shagri-la (Rustan’s) mall.  You feel an unexpected joy seeing these decorations.  You know Christmas is fast approaching.  Everything around you just twinkle just as your eyes twinkle in delight.


In response to The Daily Post weekly photo challenge.

While squeezing my writing and blogging after work and trying to sleep for at least 6-8 hours a day. I still managed to complete my Christmas checklist with the help of BENCH.

BENCH – is a Philippine retail brand (bags, accessories, clothing, foot ware and fragrances).  This store really have a lot to offer especially during Christmas season where they have a variety of gift packs you can choose from which is really affordable.   Let me show you some of the items in my Christmas loot.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, But Not Forgotten

Theme: Gone,But Not Forgotten


This photo was taken 25 weeks ago at a subway train station (Buendia Station Manila Philippines).  It was taken a Sunday afternoon and I was on my way to work after church.  It symbolizes how fast time goes by and people important to us may come and go, temporarily or permanently.  But these people were all part of our journey in life and will never be forgotten, like characters to our own story.
