Just Add Water 02: My First Watercolor Fair
Pardon me if I post this one–LATE! Yes guys, unlike before, I post everything LATE–I no longer post on time, like I used to like… within the range of 2011-2014. I cannot see myself anymore as a blogger, come 2014, until this year.
2016 sure is a tough year for me, or like, US–esp. that we lost a lot of important figures: Alan Rickman, Roy Señeres, Dick Israel–and not to mention Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago and King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand.
The Philippines may not be a bastion of art enthusiasts (honestly speaking, I think ONLY the elites appreciate all types of art, even though some are vaguely abstract). However, times are changing, and this watercolor fair is proving everyone that this country has a chance to be a bastion of art enthusiasts.
Because I am an artistic person myself, I did try my best to go back to art again. Sure, I still suck in drawing (LOL, until now), yet I do put my heart on it.

You may think, this is a “Walang Forever” moment to most of you, yet I have to tell you this: I will only be on social media through the web, but no longer on mobile. I have decided to quit Instagram (but not deleting my account there) because I myself no longer use the app (but don’t unfollow me yet–I’ll come back only when I feel like doing so). I might create a new account.
Oh, and I quit deviantArt for good. Come visit my Behance profile instead.
Social Media is toxic
I will only be active on Facebook only when it is necessary. I have deleted the most popular social media apps on Facebook is because, I don’t feel like looking towards the past–I still think that these posts on social media makes me feel like a loser (think about it–there’s nothing new in this world when you have Facebook on your mobile phone).
I only used Facebook just because some professors required it.
However, social media made my life more miserable.
Ironically, it’s the only way for me to keep in touch with my online friends.
It may be the only way for me to access news on my fingertips. Unfortunately, all the news that I read, are toxic. Duterte!? Yes, he’s the infamous rockstar who you see in tabloids.
Yes, guys. Duterte is toxic. I dropped him to be my president for 2016. Now, it’s solely Miriam whom I will have my vote.
But if I were to be asked, I will boycott the election. This upcoming election is WORSE than the 2010 elections. Also, Philippine politics is really toxic–more toxic than the most toxic and deadly lake in Russia.
No wonder, I expressed my thoughts to migrate to another country if Filipino culture still hasn’t changed.
Well, yes. I will migrate–yet truth is, quitting social media would do better.
Too late for you!? Nope, people outgrow things
It may be too late for me to quit social media, yet I have decided to quit right ahead. I dunno–I don’t want to be surrounded by poison. I think I’m getting brain cancer because of the annoying Peenoise trolling all over the Internet.
Yay! I felt so delighted after I was granted a multiple-entry Japanese visa. This is actually, a blessing from God, I guess. Thanks to okaa-chan for this one! See you soon, Kyōto! Also, I could finally visit Tokyo Disneyland and Osaka Universal Studios wearing a kimono! Yee-haw!
NOTE to people who will be visiting South Korea: Sadly, South Korea only provides 110V North American outlets in hotels, but usually, they pre-dominantly use the Type-C/F Schuko plug/outlet. This is the first country so far I’ve visited that uses Europlugs.
Not surprisingly, South Korea has Christianity and Buddhism as their two main religions besides Confucianism. I have to say that Confucianism is more of a religious philosophy, not a religion. However, Confucianism has been embedded in Korean culture, that’s why if you’ll meet a Korean Christian or a Buddhist, they have accepted the fact that Confucianism has been reconciled with other religions. (:
We passed through Dunkin Donuts. Gah, the buzzer wasn’t functioning so the staff there was willing to give us our order. Kamsahamnida, eonni! It was very great to know how you’re willing to do your job well.
It’s a good thing that cosmetics and goods in SoKor are affrodable, though in the Philippines, it’s cheaper. Japan, however, is still gawddang costly, except for goodies.
We felt very spoiled as tourists in our hotel in Japan. Hmmm… maybe Japanese people are more welcome to tourists than TNTs? Well, that should not be a big deal after all, since Filipino tourists are the ones who are the luckiest. Or prolly it’s just me, though. SMH
WARNING: Fangirl Mode.|Well… here it IS! THE Sakai Masato aka the guy who is blessed with good looks and a sun-kissed complexion. I cannot… say anything other than the fact that he’s like a GOD here across Japan. Hahaha! #KomiSays: Does AA Klenk have that way back in the Philippines!? I bet, she’s only on a billboard within the poorest areas not only in PH but also in war-torn areas in ze whole, wide world (ROTFLMFAO!).
So I had this filter for the EF-S 15-85mm lens. Happy kid right here, like a boss! It costs around 5000 JPY, but it’s actually affordable to buy something that is considered as costly in the Philippines–since 1000 PHP is around 23 USD, but the biggest yen banknote is 10000 JPY = 5000 Php, which is big money already.
A night before we go home to Manila, I just had myself GLOW magazine with Kyoka Suzuki (Remember Keiko Schneider in Legal High!?) as the covergirl. Gah, compared to other gravure idols, she’s the most wholesome–up to now.
Hmmm… I guess these are the photos I could post for now. I’m very much excited to make a food review about Japanese KitKats! (:
Korean seaweed tastes nice… and yes, if I were to be asked, Korea and Japan are the best places to go! I think that I feel like at home in Seoul, since parang Pilipino na rin ang mga Koreano. ((: In other words, nasanay na tayo na andiyan sila, therefore, they’re always welcome in the Philippines.

Watch out for the official iPhone 4S review… it’s all about everything
This is how I review the 4S: The 4S is like Facebook, err… lost downloads then iTunes to the rescue. GAH, a very super long post, but since I really LURVE Nelly (name of me phone), you get a 5-star from my review. Just watch it out!
The 4S has an 8-megapixel camera, so meaning I downgraded from 12-megapixels to just err… 8 megapixels. Also, it is very addicting to use, especially when you take a screenshot, or your face that contains pimples! HAHAHA, pardon me because acne’s striking me out! HAHAHA!
Of course, it also has a micro-SIM feature. WHY MICROSIM!? ume-SD na pala ang mga SIM card ngayon, and not to mention that this is a phone for those who love apps, and Instagram.
Might as well add me in Insta: mspdzhella
