the long wait..

Finally...the long wait has ended..been longing to have one and at last gotcha! I couldn't believe how quickly I got my new camera, we are expecting to have one this April but since I've cut all the shopping spree and all the girl stuffs that I used to do thats why we have one sooner than expected- no regrets though, its definitely worth it! Been saving for this for like a month and a half .For the past few weeks I was hopping with excitement until I got my hands on it..Oh! By the way, it's a Canon 500D. As of yesterday morning, Louise (the seller) announced that I will be meeting with her late that afternoon since the camera is on its way. It was like a relief! at last its here..the long wait has ended..We then went to Busay to make our first shots - it was a long drive but it was fun and the fresh air is incredible. Anyway, it was around 4pm and the sun was almost out so it was a lil dark so the pics that we took aren't as sharp and crisp as I would like. Could be the settings on the camera, but could be the lack of light too. I wish it was more basic, like click this button for less light, flip this switch for more light. It's always gotta be so freakin complicated. But Im really patient when it comes to this things..In few months time, I will become a good photographer - wannabe..who knows I might the girl who will take your wedding pictures, birthday celeb, pren-up pictures.

 were a big fan of vampire diaries thats why rio wanted me to pose this way since one of the cover of the tv series, the cast posed this way. :)

vday day / spa date

It's Valentines day everyone!!! As you know, this is the time of year where people expresses love for each other..Not everyone is creative when it comes to love, but there are all kinds of different and unique things you can do to show someone you care.Not everyone has a good Valentine’s Day, and the gift that you give can MAKE it or BREAK it.. No matter where you are the most common offerings are still flowers, chocolates, and cards Some people like to break with tradition and get their love something that’s completely unique and different, making it very memorable for both parties and something that they can treasure in the future.

We usually eat out like a dinner date on V-day..but this year we decided to celebrate it differently. Earlier that morning, Rio left the house to run some errands while I was on the computer finishing up something for work. We had plans but never talked about it after the dinner few days before that. I never thought that he was up to something when he left the house. I was surprised when he came home with 2 bouquets - 1 for Bennie and 1 for me.. thanks Langga for the flowers! He then told me about his plans for the night and actually had a place in mind, he even booked a reservation already - never imagined that he was able to plan all this. He wanted us to have a SPA DATE - sauna + full body massage. It was one of the most romantic date we had. We got one the VIP/ couple room they had. The place was really cozy & relaxing.

Overall, we felt very relaxed. It was one of the best date ever. 

Tired of chocolate, flowers, and silly cards with chokingly sentimental thoughts? It might be better if you looked for something unique to give to your valentine. Skip the Valentine’s Day aisle and get something that the person really wants.
