MY 2020, ONE CRAZY “KOMBUCHA” RIDE

 

When 2020 came, the first month had always been the busy month for me. I didn’t even celebrate the New Year with my family because year-end reports which I had to accomplish would be flooding at this point in time. As always, these would be accompanied by anxiety and stress which would heighten up as the deadline for submission got nearer and nearer. Added to this, my fears soared to the highest level when Taal Volcano erupted and that was also the time when my colleagues and I had an official trip to Manila. We were stranded at the airport for almost 12 hours. When I was in Manila, my stomach hurt so badly that I vomited  almost 10 times. I  could barely walk because of the tremendous pain I felt in my stomach.

NEW NORMAL DINING: LET’S EAT SAMGYUPSAL IN DAEGA UNLIMITED KOREAN RESTAURANT

The least that I can do to save humanity is to stay at home in this COVID 19 pandemic. And the least that I can do to help the nation’s economy is to go outside and let my money gradually disappear from my pocket, haha! Just kidding… Seriously though, since one is now allowed to go out if he can present his passes(quarantine pass, travel pass, etc) and observe safety protocols like wearing face masks and face shields, and disinfecting with alcohol or sanitizer, then I could go.

LIFE RECENTLY, HOW LECHON BRIGHTENED UP MY LIFE (YES, LECHON😂)

 

 

Hello, it’s me, the one who chases potatoes, CHASING POTATOES, haha! I guess I have to reintroduce myself because I was gone for more than six months. I mean I’ve been out of this blogosphere world because of so many tragic happenings around the globe since the beginning of the year 2020. Added to this sad turn of events was my being hospitalized for an operation in the first month of this year, which I will tackle soon on the blog (maybe or maybe not, haha). This pandemic that has disturbed the whole world has paralyzed my creativity, putting contents into a halt. Fear and anxiety dominate my being; thoughts and ideas float in the empty spaces in my mind. But I’m still thankful to God for sparing my loved ones and me from this horrible virus. Please COVID-19, be gone. (sigh!)

LAKE BENSIS : WE MADE THE WRONG TURN

Hello, I’m back in this virtual world and sharing another episode of Chasing Potatoes’ adventures. This time, my friends and I went camping in Toledo specifically along Lake Bensis. Ever since this Lake Bensis circulated in social media due to some controversies, I got interested in visiting this Lake haha. The more they want to hide it, the more people (like me) desire to visit it, charot! Continue reading “LAKE BENSIS : WE MADE THE WRONG TURN”

BEACH MONTEMAR : Bantayan Island Bound Again and Sharing Some of my Fave Photos and Hated As Well

 

I always dream of going places but I as I get older my excitement diminishes. Planning about trips becomes more of a burden which hinders me from chasing those dreams. I tend to overthink a lot about the inevitable. Just like what I thought while looking at this photo I snapped while journeying through the seas to Bantayan Island. It was almost evening as the sun started to go down. The sunset gave me a beautiful sight but it also gave me the realization that a day has almost ended and a new day will be coming forth, full of unknowns and uncertainties. Another day for our cells to degenerate, we get older, our parents get older, the earth is not even getting better — a realization that nothing lasts forever that change is a constant matter. Ugh. I am just such an anxious and fearful being — a pessimistic idiot! Sigh.

HOW I EDIT MY PHOTOS FOR THE GRAM

 

Sometimes I want to feel fancy, just like most girls. If I set aside my lazy ass and I am in the mood, I like to put make-up on my face, wear cute outfits and take photos of myself. I like to use my time as well by editing those snaps. I think it’s not about being vain but because I want my photos to reflect my creativity and artistry.

Sometimes raw photos are boring and problematic but added with filters and enhancements they channel different emotions and tones.Right? However, I don’t overdo my photos. I want them to look natural, if possible. So, here in my blog I’m showing you how I edit my photos to make them appear as natural as possible.
