Barbie beauty

I have a barbie friend and her name is Astraea. Before, her name sounded like a name of a constellation to me. Haha. Anyways, it was her first time to do a photo shoot and she told me that maybe i was having a hard time taking photos of her because it was her first time. But actually I didn't! It was fun working with her. About her hair, it is real, it is pink and i love how it made people to look at her instantly. 









Long years

I can't remember when was my last post, it feels like a year ago and I don't know how to start blogging anymore! 

Me and my high school best friend AL met again after six years! Though we're on the same area in the province and back in the city, she's in Manila while I'm only in Quezon City, we don't get to interact much and we really didn't get to see each other for six years. Can you believe that? We might actually have forgotten each other. lol. But thanks to our talents, we're back together again...and nothing much has changed except for AL's hair. Haha! 

I like  that we continuously grow as artists. Me as a photographer and AL's make up talent. That's why after six years, we decided to finally again meet for a photo shoot.  ;)

Arrivideci Italia

Though this post will be a very late post about my trip back to Italy from Spain, for the sake of my memories and the nice photos that I took, I'll be writing it here. This would be my last post from my Italy-Spain-Italy tour. #quickpost

 MILAN. Me with my relatives went to Milan to attend a singing contest. We left Rome at 2am and got to Milan at 7am, I guess we're the earliest to arrive. There's a lot of time to kill before the final stage rehearsal will start so before going to the event proper we took a little walk in the second biggest city in Italy.  Milan is nice but I like it better at Rome. ;)



 Duomo


Shopping and dining place. The structures were very luxurious.



Streets in Milan


Don't you just love this vintage tram? thought every tram in Europe was like this but there's none of this in Rome. Sad thing I didn't get to ride in it.


PISA. I always thought that it would really be so tall! But when I get off the car and saw the tower from afar, I was a bit disappointed. My friend expects the same thing too. So if you also thought that the Leaning tower of Pisa is so high then you better accept that it is not. But just on the first look. Because when you really look or come closer, you'll notice that it is really a bit high. It is so cool to see a lot of people taking the coolest selfie around the tower! People are everywhere in this place.






FIRENZE. My hands are numb and shaking. It was so cold when we arrived in Firenze. I guess we're at the high grounds where we had an amazing view of the city! I'm freezing and some of the kids start to get sick. 




After two days of touring around Milan, Lucca(didn't get a pic of this place), Pisa and Firenze, I am back to Rome...touring again. Though I stayed in Rome for so many days, there were just too many places to visit in Rome that I wan't able to visit because of the lack of time. There's almost a hundred places!!! So I guess, I should definitely go back to Italy to see the sights I miss. And I think Sicily would be  a perfect destination too!

Arrividerci Italia!


On my flight back home I saw that another plane wants a race. lol

Madrid, Spain

Most of the buildings around in Italy looks ancient, while in Barcelona, it look more like a city here in the Philippines because of the architectures and tall buildings, just much cleaner. In Madrid, ancient and modern buildings are present. But I noticed that all the ancient buildings have a statue, if not on the sides then it'll be on the top. I don't know what it represents though. Maybe they were the powerful people of the past. 

We stayed in Madrid for 2 nights and 2 days only. It was short but full of fun. I never got bored. Still with ate Marinette with me, we made a lot of new friends there. Sometimes I find it a little funny that  they made a schedule who will be spending the tour with us for the rest of the day. I can't actually believe that they planned it really well. From breakfast up to midnight we had our friends with us. Just for one day I met a lot of beautiful people, literally beautiful, in and out. 

If I would go back to Madrid, I'll go back because of my new friends. They're awesome! Their bond is so tight, I envy them.

A view from the top of a shopping mall. There's this window where you will see the busy street, Gran Via. I think it would be really cool if I photograph it at night, but sad we're not able to go back because there's still a lot for me to see in Madrid.






They say Spanish couples are so showy when they're in love. Okay, I get it. It's okay for me to see a young couple kissing in front of me, but seeing oldies who have been in their 60's already, kissing in the middle of this street, passionately in slow mo. I can't take that anymore. That's gross. 


I am not sure if she's a former queen.



The side building of the Royal Palace



Royal Palace(front). 

Almudena Cathedral, where only the Royals got married there.



I felt like I'm in Alice in Wonderland! The garden is so wonderful. 


There are so many people who did this for a living. I still wonder how they were able to float or remain like that in mid-air. 








 Plaza de Cibeles. My friend told me that this building was once buried when an another country invade the Spain. Yes, they covered it with soil because, just like what my friend said, it was Spain's treasure. I find it weird tho. Covering this nice structure with soil. That looks like a hill in my mind. 


Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum


Museo del Prado


Look at that tree then look for a man. Now, Do you realize how tall it is? 




Templo of Debod. A temple that is originally built by the Egyptians and been moved to Spain. They say there is something cool about this temple. About how the sun rays passes through the tunnels up to that temple, maybe. lol. I can't remember it too well.


  Back of the temple.
