Hi! I’m trying my best to post more; I don’t want my 2018 to be a backlog like 2017. I mentioned in my previous post that Kris is the only person who reads my post, but the other week I received notifications from people liking my post. You’re all cute. Thank you!

^K’s sketch of us. // My boyfriend surprised me four days after Valentine’s Day, he sent this package to my work. After my class, as I was heading back to our small teachers’ room, my co-teacher were filming me. I had no idea what was happening then. I saw the package and I just said “oh”. Not a fan of surprises but I appreciate it :)

^Crystal turquoise water of Calaguas Islands in the province of Camarines Norte, here in the Philippines. I would love to make separate posts of my travels but I don’t have cool pictures to share :(

^Boat ride to Calaguas Islands! (look at the sea behind me!!!) // your banana girl. I’m not a beach person; to be honest, I feel more relaxed when I’m just at home. Most people think that being in the Philippines means living near beautiful beaches but I grew up in the city.

Photo above is from my godchild’s baptismal, April 2017. It was very humid that day but I got to meet Jollibee and took selfies with him (photos with him aren’t posted here). Okay, bye! Sa uulitin~

Singapore: Yayoi Kusama

DSC_1100_lowres

I’ve been a huge Yayoi Kusama fan since I saw her work online, and I’ve always wanted to see at least one of her pieces.

Honestly, I didn’t make any plans weeks before I went to Singapore (for work), I don’t wanna exhaust myself after the tiring day of our students’ competition. I just wanted to spend my free time sleeping in. I need sleep more than ever, it has been a month and a half of barely sleeping because we’ve been competing online, too. So yeah, I thought maybe I’ll just sleep and stroll a bit to buy pasalubong until I learned about Kusama’s exhibit, and it became my top priority! I won’t go back to the PH until I see her art.

I had to check out my hotel room on or before 12 noon on my last day in SG which is fine with me since my flight back home will be 1 am the next day. I left my luggage at the hotel first and told them I’ll pick it up later. I was kinda reluctant to ask for that small favor until the frontdesk officer led me to a tiny room where they put all the other guests’ luggages and suitcases. So, I brought the camera (for safety purposes) and my backpack to explore. I regret bringing that much. The camera is heavy alone, and my backpack became heavy, too, as I put all the pasalubongs I bought on my way to the museum. I had to buy an extra bag because my backpack isn’t enough. Ugh.

I went to Bugis first, checked out Haji Lane, then bought pasalubongs. Went to National Gallery which is one station away from Bugis, then went back to Bugis to meet Isabel, then, together, we went to ArtScience Museum.

I was literally in tears when I saw this.
