A very personal blog

Nothing but the ceiling


is what’s up.

❱ Reading

Finally finished reading The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella! After that I immediately started with The Girl with all the Gifts by Mike Carey cos it looks interesting! Reminds me of the pretext of Stranger Things (which I haven’t watched).

❱ Listening


❱ Thinking

About what type of wedding gown to wear. I’m pretty sure only A-Line would look good on me cos I’m fat lol but the styyyyyle. I want something simple, elegant, and not so white haha, maybe lace and tulle but not so much beadworks and embroidery cos it would look too bongga for our very humble venue. My mom’s been pushing me to get a really glam wedding gown but she hasn’t seen the venue yet so I’m still counting she’ll change her mind and allow me to get a custom white infinity gown with a long train and lace overlay instead hehe.

I want to book free fittings with a couple of bridal boutiques that rents out dresses just so I’d know which style suits me best, but not until I’m lighter! Arg. It’s really my weight that’s keeping me from finishing the gown hunt, I didn’t want to disappoint myself knowing the style I want isn’t available in large. Hay.

❱ Smelling


❱ Wishing

I’d get the right stylist for my reception pegs. We already booked Hizon’s for catering and upgraded our package to improve the styling but I’m still very very doubtful they’d deliver something as beautiful as KbyC, which is really my ultimate peg. The reason we got them though is because they offered a lot of freebies during our food tasting, they upgraded everything on our menu so now we have a pasta bar, a dessert bar, and an appetizer bar, all on top of the entree count. That and a lot of other inclusions like emcee, cake, ceremony setup, etc.. It think it’s sulit naman but it’s still on the hefty side parin. Hmmm.❱ Wearing

Jacket, shirt, leggings, and rubber shoes

❱ Loving

How Hwarang ended. I watched the last episode raw and man it was so frustrating when all the scenes seem to be leading to an impeachment. I badly want Ji Dwi to be the king, heck I got second-lead syndrome from him but when I started to hate the lead girl I stopped shipping them because Ji Dwi is too good for that Ah Ro girl who’s only role is to cry and put herself in danger. If he’s not gonna get the girl, give him the throne at least!

Anyway, I didn’t understand anything from the episode until the part when Sun Woo barged in the council with his army of Hwarangs, and shouted “Jinheung pyeha, manse!” right when everyone expected him to wage war and claim the throne for himself. Boom panes silang lahat. Wooh!

“Manse!” is what subjects say when welcoming a new King so Sun Woo basically said, “Hail, King Jinheung!”. I got that from Scarlet Heart: Ryeo which had three king turnovers lol. Manse, manse, man, manse!

❱ Wanting

To get more affirmation the we did the right thing booking Studio1 for our P/V. I was actually looking out for them ‘cos they’re the most affordable one that’s within our budget but of course we were weighing out other options during the fair as well. Keri na rin ‘cos at least we were able to get the package we wanted for only 30k. Complete photo and video coverage, with prenup pictorial, SDE video, and wedding album for the couple and the parents. Other than that they also offered a photobooth service, sintra boards for display, and a couple standee (LOL). I’m only in the for the photobooth though, the others are nice to have the na lang pero pwede na rin lol.

My biggest concern now is the editing. My preferred style is bright and natural ala Daniel Talavera, Myio Okamoto, and The Perfect Grey… but so far Studio1’s port is filled with overly edited, highly saturated, mostly warm presets that I don’t like. I hope we can talk about achieving the style I want though ‘cos honestly, I know it involves a lot of selective editing that is super tedious!

Also, the layout. I do layouts and graphic design so I’ll be very particular with this process. I hope they won’t hate me and I hope I won’t be that client from hell who’s so demanding with the output.

For the video, I won’t have a lot of say in thas ‘cos I don’t know video editing but I’m so against bokeh transitions lol.

In any case, as long as I get all the raw copies of the entire event I’d be good. Haha

❱ Needing

To rest my wobbly legs.


Super tired from playing badminton two days in a row. Not gonna do that again. At the state of my legs I’d be a limp if I pushed another day.

Hope you’re doing fine!
