shooting incident

Monday. my gay friend invited me to do a photo shoot with him... i'm gonna do the fix for this girl and he's gonna do mine... we ran out of time, so we just went on with my model and take photos of my job. it was tiring because i am not that good in color mixing and matching. the first fix, he asked me to do a day time makeup. i was like "duh?" coz i really don't know which colors i should use. he just said, whatever you think is the best for a day makeup. man! i don't even know what's not best! but since he gave me too much trust, i had to finish the effin' makeup and i settled for the neutrals. it is the safest color to use, i guess. while i was doing it, his assistant had to finish the hair. i'm glad that i won't be doing the hair. i'm not that good at it... when we're done, we started the shoot right away so i can still create a night time look... ehmeyged! this is not happening! i'm starting to panic!

anyway, this was the end result... i am glad that he liked it... he said i should start collecting photos for my portfolio. hmmm... not a bad idea...

when it's our turn to change the colors, i used different shades of green. though it turned out like black, i am still satisfied with the result. my sister said she liked it... i don't know if others would too... here's the pic... it is somewhat smokey. and i had to use falsies to make it look more dramatic.

some of the images were kinda blurry. i am not good in taking photos like this. i had to zoom it in and crop the part that i like. sorry about this... maybe next time i'd take classes on photography. i find it exciting too! good luck to me...


my birthday celeb was not that big... yeah, i know you know... did i mention that it's D's birthday too? yes, we do have the same birth date! ^_^ the night before our day, he took me out and we spent the night out and away from the kids for a while. 'twas fun! though we have to hurry back to the house because the kids would pretty much stay up late waiting for us to get back... darn! anyway, i had a great time though it's kinda quick and short... i still count it as our special alone time.

sunday. we're invited by my cousin to lunch. their whole neighborhood is celebrating the Feast Day of... ugh! i forgot! i'm sorry... anyway, let's go on... my cousin prepared something for that day, so we can go there and lunch together. we waited for the Procession of the images of Mother Mary and other saints (?)... unfortunately, my cam ran out of bat... i wasn't able to take photos of the event. UUURGH!!! now, i have nothing to show you!

the kids started to feel bored and they are all whining and asking us to take them home... so, there's no wisest choice but to go home. as soon as my butt landed my chair, i boot up my pc and then go on checking my mail and everything.

and to my surprise, i found out that one of my look was included in the LOTW! wow! that's amazing! again?! this is getting unbelievable! but whatever reason FS has, i don't care... it made my day again and i'm happy about it. and it's scary sometimes. the witches that bugged my friends were not around... inactive? well, we have to see... again, thanks to FS... i would consider this as a birthday gift... and to the "ladies" -- i love you! all the blog post in our group touched my heart... i don't know how to say it, well maybe because i'm not good at it, but i am soo thankful that all of you came into my life. one day, you'll come across this post and you will know how much i gained from you... you are soo wonderful!

(birthday greetings from my friends)

brighten up my day

it was the 24th and it's my birthday. i don't know if it's just the weather or me, but i don't really feel special that day. we'll be having a party that night and i really need to get my ass up the couch to go to the grocery store to pick up some things that i will be needing for the small party. i've invited several close knits but most of them sent a message saying sorry because they can't make it and just wished me a happy birthday. disappointed, but still have to carry on...

my sister was chatting with our online friends the whole day. so it means that she's up to date with what's what and who's who... she broke in and break the news that my "leukemia look" was chosen as the LOTD! no reaction at first... it's not happening, i said. how could it be? i checked... OMG! it's true! it is effin' true! hahaha!

you see? maybe FS really wants the "throw-in-whatever" look... i'm wondering... what was her basis?


it somehow brightened up my day... hey! it's my birthday! and thanks to FS and my dearest online friends... (i call them "the ladies" ^_^)
