“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself.”—C. JoyBell C. (via hqlines)
This is our afford ko to campaign and prescon for Hausland Dev’t Corporation wherein media people asked several questions about ourselves and about the brands that we are endorsing.
Some of the questions that were thrown upon me were, If you were to buy a house from Hausland, where, what model and why?
I didn’t have to think for long because I already know my answer even before I was asked.
If I were to buy a house, I would choose Nouveau Residences, the Prism house model. Why? Because Nouveau is located in Magalang, Pampanga which is 5 minutes away from Marquee Mall and NLEX. Its a few kilometers away from the city, schools, businesses etc. Its very convenient for my lifestyle. Not to mention the ever so chic design of the Prism house model that fits my sense of style. I love the gym and the pool too. The security is outstanding so I am worry free. The subdivision is well maintained, peaceful and clean. Most importantly, its very affordable and available in different payment schemes. So with Nouveau Residences, I have nothing more to ask for. Afford ko to!
You can also check other projects from Hausland which are all equally affordable, stylish, secure and located in prime areas like
I remember when I was a child, people would give me toys during different occasions. But I can vividly recall that I liked crayons, colored pencils, colored pastels, and coloring books more. I’ve always liked the feeling of creating something that’s pleasing to the eye, something colorful. I like it when colors blend and compliment each other. I used to have coloring books of Disney princesses and use my coloring tools for their makeup. My favorite part back then was coloring the lips. And then the eyes, and even put blush on. And then when I was around 5 or 7 years, somebody gave me a little makeup set for little girls and I remember that I was so fond of it and use it every single day.
When I was in high school I started doing my own makeup. I was no pro back then, but I enjoyed doing it for myself. Then when I was in college I started watching youtube videos on how to put makeup on and what brands to buy. I then save my allowances and spend them all on makeup and clothes. I also used to go to a lot of parties so I mastered the art of the “smokey eye”. Up until a week ago, I thought I knew almost everything with makeup. But I was wrong.
I enrolled myself in a makeup class because I wanted a certificate. I wanted to be a professional makeup artist. And then last Monday, my classes started and it really hit me that what I knew was so amateur and very basic. I didn’t know that makeup has a system, that one step is as important as the other, and there are rules to follow. In choosing makeup, you need to choose brands that are both pro and high definition (ex. RCMA, Graftobian, etc). And for you to achieve a flawless look that lasts for quite a number of hours, you need these brands and not the brands that we commercially drool for. You want something that’s highly pigmented and blends well too. Blending is an important aspect of makeup. You don’t wanna see a face full of lines, do you? (There are a lot of makeup brands that are well respected in this industry, can’t mention them all in one post though.)
So what I’m saying is, going to a makeup school makes a lot of difference. Yes it’s pricey, (on top of all the makeup you’ll need) but its worth it. Think of it as an investment.
I gave up my job, my car, and my FREE GAS allowance (which is the most crucial part of all) because of my passion. I cannot see the point in living when you have to drag yourself out to work every day with a heavy heart. I want to stop living a miserable life. So I finally had the courage to do what I want. And now I’m happy. I’ve actually never been this happy. Getting paid for doing things that you love and being good at it are the best! I might have spent a lot but I know that its going to be worth it.
**Not that I don’t want to have another job though, of course I am very much open to that. Its just that I realized that you should never force yourself to do something just to please other people. Do things because you want them, not because someone is telling you to do so. Believe in yourself, trust in your abilities, because eventually, you can work it out, you will.
***Special thanks to my Lola and my brother for believing in me. To my brother, I remember when you brought this up to me a year ago, In case you don’t know, you were first person who voiced this idea out to me, I was just generally imagining things on my head, and its finally happening now. Having a brother like you is amazing. To my Lola, I cannot count all the things you did for me. Wouldn’t know what to do without you. ;) And to my Auntie Beng and Auntie Irene for always telling me that I can make this happen. It means so much. To my Auntie Vian, thanks for making me realize the other side of important things and for the support as well. Dad, thanks so much for letting me borrow your car again. haha! Mom, I miss you and your cooking! To my boyfriend, thanks for the support and for encouraging me and believing in me. :) To all my family and friends, thanks for all the support.
To Zab, thanks sister, you’ve also been with me from the very beginning. Please know that I cherish our friendship more than ever. (the logo you made for me was amazing by the way, and why are you so talented? haha)

I finished the last book of the Fallen series today, Rapture. I kept the receipt after I bought the book and used it as a bookmark instead. Funny I never once thought of throwing it out. I looked at the receipt right after reading the last page and saw that I bought this book August 21, 2012. Today, its 1:49 am, August 21, 2013. Coincidence?
Glad to catch a glimpse of the sun before it rained. :)
Clark is always a nice place to have a shoot.. I am so lucky to have a talented brother who is willing to take my pictures. lol. Well this is supposed to be a birthday shoot but it got delayed for a week!
Top - Forever21, Shorts- Vanilla Breeze Clothing, Shoes - bought them in Hongkong, particularly in a shoe store in Mongkok.
I am my own make up artist, by the way. One day I am going to pursue this career. ;) But as you can see, my hair is quite a mess, so… haha
Live for the sake of living, love till your heart is breaking. Give your all and don’t go back, tell the truth and don’t forget to laugh, till your body’s aching. Cry till your hands are shaking. Wherever you go, what ever you do, don’t live a whatever life. :)
