I will no longer be posting on Green Tea Lover because I am a Gemini. The planets have aligned, unleashing a power that has forced me to switch moods/hobbies/likes/etc. Click on Pusheen (the cat face photo above) to be directed to my new blog, The Red Beret Girl (because lately I have been in a red beret-wearing mood).

A Day with Totoro and Andre

Hello world, I have entered the realm of the internet to show-off my really nifty gift of luuurve to my boyfriend. AREN'T YOU JELLY??

Because I am.

I gave these cute Totoro's to my boyfriend and he won't even let me borrow them!! (I could only take pictures of them at his house..) But that's ok, I guess. I'll be getting my gift soon too, right Andre?

Until we meet again, Totoros...!
P.S. I'd like to thank Andre for being my man muse, even if just for a second or two.

If I Lived in a Forest in Siberia

I would like to wear all of these. Lately I've been getting inspiration from Princess Mononoke and Pocahontas, but trying to wear any of these get-ups in the Philippines is like purposefully wanting to die of heat stroke. DARN IT, I WANT TO LOOK LIKE A GIRL FROM THE WOODS. Why does Topshop have to be so expensive? Euro, you powerful currency, you.

All images are from !

Afternoon on the Galactic Highway

These photos are long overdue. I haven't had the time, the energy and the motivation to blog with all the tests I have to study for and lessons I have to catch up with, not to mention having to say goodbye to two people that I care for a lot. The feng shui people were spot-on when they said this year would be bad luck for those who were born on the year of the rooster. They also told me (read this from a large paper with fortunes written for all years in a temple) that I must take precaution because I may get kidnapped or something. They're trying to scare me.

Back to the photos, I took them on the way to a resort.. with a wave pool! No wave pool pictures, I didn't want to risk getting my camera splashed with water by those wild creatures, I mean kids. So most of these photos are of me, some by me, on the road. I hate how my hair gets so oily from travelling. WHY. does my blood circulate faster when I travel? Does my blood circulate faster, thereby making my glands produce more oil when I travel? Ok, gross, sorry. 

Har har.

As I Watched the Flower Wither

These photos were taken on my way to the hospital. You probably have an idea how bad the traffic can get in manila, most of these lights were from cars, ha ha. (I think these blurred light effects are called bokeh.) I didn't know that the raindrops would help to produce such nice photos.

That week was quite draining for my family and I, going back and forth to the hospital, socializing with relatives, staying up late and what-not. I am just glad that I was able to be there for my grandmother. It's great to know that even though she was in a coma, she could still hear us talking to her. At times, tears would accumulate at the corner of her eyes when we spoke to her.

To My Dearest Grandmother

When God Lets My Body Be

From each brave eye shall sprout a tree
fruit that dangles therefrom

the purpled world will dance upon
Between my lips which did sing

a rose shall beget the spring
that maidens whom passion wastes

will lay between their little breasts
My strong fingers beneath the snow

Into strenuous birds shall go
my love walking in the grass

their wings will touch with her face
and all the while shall my heart be

With the bulge and nuzzle of the sea

For some reason, my shoulders always ache when I carry any bag. Even though the only things in it are my wallets and cellphone. Sigh, I am such a delicate flower (ha ha!), but thankfully I've got my manly boyfriend (redundant?). Just look at his neck and shoulders, they're so handsome, seriously. Ha ha! Anyway, this is what we like to do, spend moola time together and chill.

How I Spent the Rainy Weekend

I can't seem to get enough of the mall recently (and I throw tiny tantrums when I don't get to stay as long as I want, or do what I want, sigh). Typhoon Falcon kept me inside for most of my weekend, and to be honest it sucked. I love the rainy weather, don't get me wrong, but gosh. The sewage in the Philippines is SO BAD that places tend to get flooded easily. Couldn't get to my usual hangout place since the flood getting there was too risky for the car. And what's annoying about it is that there was only one part getting there that was flooded. Dang sewage. Darn youuu.

Anyway, this is how I spend my long weekend. Taking pictures at the mall, being vain, getting bored and getting fat healthy.

Elle Fanning is Gorgeous

I've been raving about Elle Fanning for awhile. I think she's gorgeous --- she's got that mod, Twiggy look. I think that's partly what magazines like Marie Claire are trying to do with her look in some (most) of these photos. Gosh, to think she's only 13 years old! I hope she doesn't end up becoming like Miley Cyrus and the like. She's waaaay to amazing to go down that path, I hope.
