I’ll be making that blog.. as for today.. this is my life recently.. done with summer class, It’s my vacation.. hoping to get photoshoots.. 😀

A LETTER TO MYSELF.

Untitled-1

HEY JAIRUS!

You don’t know me, but I’m a huge fan of yours, I really hope you read this, but I understand if you can’t..that’s okay…I know we will meet one day, and I’m really looking forward to it. I know that you’ve been so playful growing up, your time is precious that’s why you keep on playing games every day. You sometimes think that the world is so big that you couldn’t handle things right. Yes, it’s big and it’s hard to handle but don’t think about how you’re going to handle it, just be yourself, play around your town, fly kites, play chase with your friends, make new friends, enjoy the sun, because sooner you might not be able to do all that anymore, your life will change… there will be no more enjoying the sun, flying kites, running in and out of the house, learning new stuffs around the city… there will be no more interesting than that jay..  just enjoy each moment, each seconds passing by… enjoy your life jay as if it’s the last.

I heard you can draw, i heard you’ve been competing with other schools, that’s great! you shouldn’t give that up okay? expect that there will be ups and downs that the moment won’t last that long okay? but promise me that you’ll be continuing to love art yeah?              I also heard that your father left to work abroad? is that his old passport you’re hugging? Don’t be sad, I’m always here I could hug you hugging that passport. 🙂 and ask you to play outside… he’ll be back soon! that’s for your own good, your father wanted you to feel that you could do something more than this life, and he’s going to help you with that, he will work abroad and help you to study to a great school, eat some delicious foods, play with new gadgets because he love you! your father loves you and your whole family.. don’t be sad okay? smile! let’s just go play outside..

Jay, you know how proud I am to you right now? so proud.. I know that you’ve been dealing with problems, growing up, I never wanted to mention it because I don’t want you to be sad. But really, I am so proud jay, I truly am.. problems will come and go, but be sure to deal with them okay? I want you to fight! I don’t want you to go through all of the pain that I have dealt, I wanted the best for you.. I can see that you’ve been sad with your friends lately, but still manage to ignore all that up, but jay…. if it’s something that’s bothering you, leave it all out.. it’s not that worth it.. you can do so much to your life, don’t waste time crying how your friend can’t even surprise a birthday to you…  no cakes, no balloons, no gifts… that okay jay, it won’t last… one day someone will throw a party, spend time on your birthdays.. just keep yourself up okay? sooner or later everything will be okay.. even if it’s a family problem, I’m pretty sure everything will be alright. just keep moving forward… by the way, are you going to college? Have you decided yet? still holding that Architecture course that you’re talking about since you started your school? I think college is for you, you’re so smart and it will be a great shelter for you, where you will learn, grown and work to become someone better than your prior environment.. your 2nd year of college will be hard even third… I know that you gave all of your effort studying when you started college but I’m still figuring it out how to manage to be that again, you’re smart jay, I saw that when you left home and went to the other city, a 4 hour drive from your hometown.. I saw that you’ve been giving all of your efforts by spending time around the library studying for your subjects.. not sleeping because of all the plates that your professor required you to do.. the plans, the perspectives, the research works… you’re doing great! even if your 2nd and 3rd is hard,.. don’t lose hope! I know you can do it.. and jay! you’ll meet someone that’ll change your life! I can’t wait to talk about it.. 🙂

I hope you never lose your childish innocence, I hope you learn to love yourself, and stop comparing yourself to others, you have an amazing self-esteem your confidence is intoxicating, never give up your dreams, you know what they are, and they will all come true, I promise. Just keep working, and never get comfortable or take anything for granted, people will remember your heart of gold, work ethic and forthrightness, you are a shining star, your time will come…

Jay! it’s been so great chatting, but I have to go.. I still have plates to do, *Rural Bank plan* you’ll soon too.. 🙂 don’t ever lose hope okay? just keep moving forward, every thing will be okay… just always smile, never let anyone ruin that great smile of yours alright? by the way, you have great 2 older sister and a younger brother that you’ll be laughing with..  your family loves you so much.. especially your mum and your father.. they love you so much… hey! don’t ever forget where you came from. I’ll be seeing you, in all the familiar places..

 

Love always.

Jairus

 

 

Life explorations, Ep. 01

-My love for photography and architectural design. It has been my passion, my love, and my happiness. Details by details, shapes and sizes, It can never go wrong.. This is one of the reasons why I’m studying architecture, not just for the money and job, but for the artsy blood cells running through my veins that keeps me inspired. And of course It’s been my sweet escape, my ecstasy, but seriously… Shot’s of Awe quoted to his video blog. “We are trying to find escape from the despair.” Exactly! Art and Photography has been my escape from the despair outside my windows. -Nerdy but true…

-Not your typical mall.

Robinsons Antipolo is an al-fresco shopping mall in Antipolo, Rizal,                     Philippines. It is owned and operated by Robinsons Malls, the second largest mall operator in the Philippines. Situated in a 16-hectare mixed-use complex, the two-level center will take up six hectares. Located at the junction of Sumulong Highway and Circumferential Road in Upper Antipolo, the new mall will also host a public transportation terminal that will also attract residents from Baras, Tanay, Teresa, Morong, and Antipolo. It opened on September 26, 2014 making it the 38th mall of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC).
*To see is to believe, I do recommend the place,.. and wait til you see the parking lot..
-KUDOS to the architect/engineer of the place. 🙂 You’re awesome.
– This is how much I love art and photography.

I’m an introvert.

I’m an introvert.. please bare with me… please bare with me that whenever I am not talking to you or going to your invites.. I am angry or you did something wrong… It’s just part of our life… an introverts life… It’s not that I am an antisocial, but I just get anxiety whenever there’s a lot of people and there’s a lot of things going on.. not all introverts are shy, some of them can talk to a lot of people but not for a very long time.. so whenever I leave… I am just regaining my energy from my anxiety.. by regaining my energy back, what I mean is being alone in a safe place… being with a lot of people can sometimes exhaust me.. whenever I am tired but still need to hang around.. I can seem really to be like.. mean, and detached… but really it’s just.. I am so exhausted.. introverts like me are so exhausted..  so please if there are times that I don’t want to talk to you or go out with you… it’s not because I am angry or something… we just  have to be by ourselves.. just to maintain a healthy mental state… that’s why I am telling you this.. just for you to understand me,. i am an introvert.. please bare with me..

A Photograph

-This blog post is a fashion photo shoot blog. I’ve been asked to do a photo shoot with my friend here Camille Bernabe, she’s my classmate in high school, basically we both love fashion.. She’s been asking me to do a photo shoot of her like a very long time ago, I never had a chance because whenever I’m available, she’s not… last month I asked her when will she be going to Tarlac City, because she’s studying in SLU, Baguio City. I used to study there for about a year but never had a chance to hang out a lot with her and do shoot because I’m not bringing my camera. *long story* ahah. Oh and I almost forgot, there are two girls here, haha the other model is Jennica Datu, same with camille she’s my classmate in high school.. ooppss by the way this blog is not about them ahaha, this blog is a fashion photoshoot, maybe showcasing my work. 😀

  • Camille Bernabe, Hospitality and Tourism Management student.
  • By taking photos with this girl and her outfit on this location is really challenging, we didn’t considered the location. Her outfit is black and gray, Yes, a photo shoot in the city suits her outfit considering that she’s wearing a strong look, a manly outfit where it doesn’t fit flowers and girly stuffs, but of course we won’t be wasting our time just looking for another location because I still need to do something after the shoot. Since there is no time, we did just go with the flow, we searched and search in and out the location where there maybe a blank white wall or a wall of graffiti but there isn’t any, the place only got a half wall with flowers on top of them. Next time I will ask her to bring more than one outfit and I’ll ask my other friends to look for other locations where we can shoot more interesting fashion photos. by the way, if you’re wondering who picked her outfit… she did. 😀
  • Make up by Kim Escalona.

  • Jennica Datu, Environmentalist student.
  • I didn’t had any trouble taking pictures of her because of how she blends around the location, her outfit suits the place. my favorite is the portrait one. I didn’t expect that I would have a shot like this, it’s a great photo for a debut shoot or wedding shoot.
  • Her photo shoot is more like a debut/wedding shoot than fashion, Since i’m still learning about the basics in debut/wedding shoots, this is a great practice for me about the placements of the subject in the photo and how to use other objects to make a photo look good. Here I tried putting my camera inside the bushes for the leaves to blur and have a great effect on the photo without editing such things.
  • Make up by her.

 

I had so much fun taking photos with these girls… it’s seems like the camera loves them. ahah!
