THOUGHT BUBBLE: THE VIEW FROM THE FENCE

Years ago, I would not be so concerned with my words or language. But then again, this would merely be just some note scribbled on a piece of paper that would end up being folded and tucked between the pages of some book to be eventually misplaced and forgotten. Though writing in this virtual space... Continue Reading →

THE SECOND TIME AROUND

When Det and Darrel were expecting their first born (Adam), we were exploring the idea of doing a maternity shoot.  Though portrait photography (in whatever form) always intimidated me and something I reluctantly ventured into unless it involved children or unknowing strangers (that sounds a bit creepy and little more like stalking), I was excited...

BOOK: SCRAPPY LITTLE NOBODY

Halfway through the introduction of the book Scrappy Little Nobody, the Anna Kendrick writes (or rather says, because I initially have an audio version): "That night, I resolved to keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out." and I couldn't agree with her more.  There... Continue Reading →

MOVIE: PITCH PERFECT 3

Took my twelve year old niece to watch Pitch Perfect 3.  She loved the entire movie -- the songs, the jokes, and the Bellas, of course.  She practically grew up with the Pitch Perfect movies and she introduced me to the franchise years ago when she was just half her age now. I didn't hate... Continue Reading →

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!

Went to the bookstore earlier today to find a birthday card for my mom. I was off somewhere again and won't be spending this day with her and the rest of the family. Maybe a (belated) card delivered thru courier would make me feel less guilty. But I couldn't find one I liked. I wasn't... Continue Reading →

THOUGHT BUBBLE: REMINISCENCE

I bid goodbye to my old blog THiRTYSOMETHiNG and all my other blogs when I started Bacolod Walks in 2010. There is always that conscious effort to sound straight forward and avoid being emotionally charged. In other words, nakpapaka mature. I reopened THiRTYSOMETHiNG a few days ago. (Fortunately, I still remembered my account name and... Continue Reading →
