This was taken almost a year ago somewhere near Manila Bay. My family and I were jogging at around 6AM when I noticed this man. An hour after, he was still there trying to catch fish as his means for living. One of the things that I first noticed in this picture is the sharp contrast between the image of the fisherman and what is reflected on the other side of the water. Along the sidewalk near the bay, there were also vendors who sold fishes, which they claimed as fresh out of the water. It was a weekend but still, this man had to work in order to earn money for his family.
Yesterday was THE day. The day I passed my last requirement for the first semester of AY2011-2012. *tears of joy* I can finally sleep for as long as I want to. This sembreak would be my last since I will be graduating from college next year. Yes, I WILL graduate and that will be on March 2013. 🙂
My hell weeks began last September, which was actually my birthday month. Good thing there were a few stuffs to look forward to during that month, such as the Maroon 5 concert (whose opening act was The Cab, my MOST favorite band) and field trip in Intramuros. I will let the pictures do the talking since I’m still not in the mood to write lengthy entries (hangover from thesis and final papersss!).
Pardon for not being too familiar with the characters in Star Wars. >.<
Sadly, that is the only picture I had during my birthday. Oh well. Had fun screaming and singing to all of The Cab’s songs as well as that of Maroon 5’s. My concert buddies (little sister and ate Kharm) and I vowed that we will look forward to every Maroon 5 concert in Manila and we will make an effort to attend each concert (hopefully, patron seats always). Achib!
In case you are wondering what the hell are we wearing, those are clothes that fall under the Philippine national costume. We were required to wear the national costume during our field trip in Intramuros. Quite embarrassing at first but after a few minutes we got used to the stares of people. We even had fun wearing it for a few hours. 😉
The building even gives off an “authoritarian” -ish vibe. One of my favorite shots during the trip.
I absolutely love this lamp (or whatever this display is)! It looks quite old but it’s classy. If only I could bring this home… </3
We were not allowed to take pictures, in front of this monument, with our national costumes on. We had to change to our casual clothes and we decided not to change back to our Filipiniana since it was a hassle to keep on changing clothes.
I love shooting places, especially in angles like this. Weird ba?
A belated happy birthday to me! Thank you little sister for taking this picture. Off to enjoy my well-deserved sembreak! 🙂
