Well, do you think they are surprised? LOL, obviously they are just acting surprised. It has become a habit for us friends to have this kind of pose and you have to utter the words "NYEEH" before I clicked the shutter, hehehe. This was popularized in Pinoy comedy sitcoms and imitated by almost everyone who are trying to deliver a funny punchline but the response is Nyeeh! (read CORNY!) We actually call this Pinoy pose, and there is also Korean pose with the V sign with matching "pa cute" look! :D
Happy photohunting peeps! Check out the other entries here.
This week at Fix it Friday on I heart Faces, players can try their hands on making this already beautiful photo of a pretty young lady to something interesting and different.
Using Lightroom, I cropped the photo above to focus on the beautiful subject, then I adjusted a bit of the exposure and added some black. I also adjusted the clarity to define the colors and make it more sharp.
Here, I want to provide some dreamy effect. Using Lightroom, I cropped the photo again, lessen the clarity to provide that dreamy effect and lessen the saturation, then used vignette.
If you want to see how others played visit I Heart Faces.

My sister and I, with our childhood icons donald duck and daisy duck. Looking at this certainly brought back childhood memories. I grew up watching them on the boob tube together with mickey mouse and the other walt disney characters and always have this fervent wish to visit Disneyland and enjoy a moment with them. That wish took plenty of years to come true until Hongkong Disneyland opened up. It was a funny and ecstatic moment running after this characters in my adulthood feeling like a kid and lining up to have our photos taken. But that was all worth it and would still want to see Disneyland in Florida even if it would take me another plenty of years. :)
There are plenty of beautiful Nostalgia themed pictures here at .
Check them out!

Ang lemon pie ng Lemon Pie House ang pinaka namimiss kong merienda at sa sobrang pagka asam ko ay napanaginipan ko pa. Ang hirap nga lang ay sa SAGADA lang ito matatagpuan kaya nagbabalak na kaming bumalik sa madaling panahon kahit na dose 0ras pa ang byahe bago marating yun. Isa lang ito sa maraming dahilan para balik-balikan ang Sagada.
Ang isang hiwa ng lemon pie ay 20 pesos lang tapos sabayan mo ng mountain tea sa halagang 15 pesos, kasama pa ang magandang "ambiance" ay panalong panalo ang meryendang ito. Kung sakaling di ka pa busog ay masarap din ang kanilang egg pie!
At kung gusto mo pa ng ibang meryenda, marami pa dito sa Litratong Pinoy!

Whoever created that account in FB, kudos to you for giving us easy access to the glorious past of the Old Philippines. These are some of the photos that really captured my attention .....
I practically grew up in this area, attending sunday masses regularly at Sta Cruz Church with my family and doing our shopping in the Escolta area and to have a glimpse of how these places looked like decades before I was born just amazes me, especially the existence of tramvia as a means of transportation, wow!
We usually frequent Luneta Park after hearing Sunday mass when I was still a kid and this is how it was in 1900's.
Gloria Romero, the Queen of Philippine Movies during the 1950's in a Coke Advertisement. She's really beautiful....

I met this cute kid while we were having lunch in one of the restos in D'Mall in Boracay. He readily got my attention with that cute curly locks he got. He was actually acting grumpy with his nanny so I offered him a chocnut candy and that was the look I got.... yeah he accepted the chocnut and then asked for more :D ....
For more crazy, silly and funny faces, you've got to head on to I Heart Faces!

Sometimes, I find it more fun to just stay home on a friday night especially if it coincided with payday 'coz that means heavy traffic and crowded gimmick places. Ordering pizza delivery while on the comforts of our living room is my best option while having a DVD movie marathon with my sisters and cousins until the wee hours of the morning and then waking up late on Saturday ... Just Perfect for me! :)

Sabi nila, mainam na kumain ng ALMUSAL araw-araw dahil mas nakakabuti ito sa ating kalusugan. Madalas kasi eh tanghali na akong gumising kaya ang almusal ko ay yung tanghalian na namin.
Pero kung buffet naman ang almusal, eh syempre kailangang gumising ng maaga ng makarami at makakain ng ibat ibang klase ng almusal .... di bale nang pagkatapos eh magkapili-pilipit ang aking tiyan sa kabusugan, hehehe ....
Sa iba pang nakakatakam na almusal, bisita na dito.
Here are the rules:
1. Collect the book that you have most handy
2. Turn to page 161
3. Find the 5th complete sentence
4. Cite the sentence on your blog
5. Pass it on to 5 other Bloggers
The book most handy to me is the Bible, its actually lying just next to this laptop.
The fifth complete sentence on page 161 is actually from the book of Numbers chapter 9 verse 18 and it reads ....
"At the Lord's command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle they remained in camp."
This speaks to me about obedience, following Gods directions to ensure our safety. Sometimes we choose to ignore God's words and that brings us to different kinds of troubles. As a reminder to me I should always seek His guidance before doing anything, learning to entrust my cares on the Lord as everything is up to HIM ....
My friends you can join and grab this inspirational tag .....

This week at I heart faces, everyone is sharing their summer stories through a series of photos. Our summer in Boracay is my contribution .....
To get a good view of Boracay, we visited Mt. Luho, Boracay's highest elevation with a viewing tower and a walk way. From here, we had a nice view of the Bolabog beach, the Fairways and Blue Water Golf Resort and of course the ocean. To get there we hired an All Terrain Vehicle for 500 pesos each.
It was my first time to ride an ATV and traversed a rugged terrain and it was all worth it ....
Getting henna tattoos have become a popular must do when you visit the beach, so I had one for myself ...
Even if it was raining and the sand can really get harsh when the wind blows, we sure had fun!!! .........
And who could resist the best milkshake in Boracay!
And if your built for this, Boracay boasts of water activities for the water sports enthusiasts ...We still managed to catch the sunset even if there was typhoon at that time, it was not as glorious as it used to be but still beautiful ....
Night life is alive in Boracay. You can party all night, lucky for us, it was not raining from 10pm onwards and so we treated ourselves to some acoustic sounds and some drinks ...
And my most treasured moment is some quiet moment after taking a bubble bath, thanking my Father up above for the opportunity to be one with nature and enjoy this beautiful experience.
Come visit and join the fun here!!!
