DINOSAURS ALIVE at Bigshot
with the family, being a 90's kid that I am, was born into
the Dinosaur generation,growing up and watching Jurassic Park,
Godzilla and Land Before Time,
I've always had this fascination for these creatures, I even cried after watching
the Godzilla's babies go BOOM! (On the movie)
I really dragged the whole family into seeing the exhibit.
You're never to old to enjoy robotic Dinosaurs on display.
Dinasaurs Alive is a $3.5 million educative and fun-filled exhibition featuring robotic dinosaurs, where visitors wonder through a forest setting along the 165 million year journey of the Dinosaurs.
Life-like dinosaurs in front of me, breathing, moving, awesome, the Apatosaurus was huuggeee, was trying to contain my erge to climb on top of its head and slide down to its tail and scream "YABA-DABA-DOOO!!!!"
Heart starting to beat faster, flashbacks of watching Jurassic Park as a child and having the chills...
And I swear I was THAT close in peeing my shorts after seeing and hearing the T-rex, I felt fear and excitement mixed together in a twisted emotion.
and I just realized...
Gensan is the 7th city the exhibit has visited ,
(in the Philippines cuz, they've already been rawr-ing allover the world)
after Gensan they will be heading to Davao, Tagum, Baguio and Albay (in that order)
It was fun, so if you live anywhere near these cities, better watch out, ze Dinosaurs are coming!!!
Check out their official site
After the exhibit, had lunch with the family, then coffee date with the bf *hearts*, then church with the family, twas the feast of The Divine Mercy, joined the procession. *insert halo*

HELL WEEK AT F.I.D.A
This might be a shocker for those who see our school as a laid-back-easy-breezy-we-just-sit-around-and-do-a-bit-of-reading-and-hard-labor kindda school. Yes, we have our hell week as well, projects and delayed activities piling here and there for all the slacker students to ENJOY, including yours truly. HAHA.
Everything has to be done by Saturday.
Slept around 4am almost everyday, spent it hand stitching and beading my
Philipp Tampus inspired gown, for our advanced draping class.
I got through it with energy drinks and a Dexter DVD marathon.
At school, the smell of coffee, the students itching to GTFO and finish so they could have that sweet first of summer taste.
INSIDE THE FACTORY
After another day of nonstop sewing and everything school related.
After class, Aidx picked me up at school to start preping up for our online store...
Our shared interest in DIY-TWISTED-GRUNGY-OUT-OF-THE-NORM fashion
was the core foundation of the store.
We started by preparing the photos for our online catalog, then we scadoodled off to Starbucks on the newly opened SM ANNEX, to upload and manage the store on its debut.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from our first collection...
You see something you likey?
Go LIKE-ey!!! And BUY-ey!!!
ODE TO EDIE
Took my written and hands-on exam on pattern making, *whew*, blessed be,
I did good, so I think I did.
After the exam off to my favorite model lovie Rush Lelis's house for a shoot, I wanted to give a legit rep for my advanced draping project, because one can't appreciate its true form and beauty only by hanging on a headless, legless, and arm-less body form. So I figured in order to bring justice to the gown that I hand stitched, what better way than to have a shoot for it!
Lovie Rushie, as always, is a darling to shoot, she definitely knows how to work it.
Here are some of the photos... :)
Not bad for a hand sewn gown aye? :)
Thanks again to Rushie my love for being an awesome friend/mowdel. :))
Went back to school to finish some more sewing.
Then back to my dorm with Aidx, for the finishing touches of the detachable collars that we're selling.
HAND MADE. ONE OF A KIND. LIMITED.
YOU CAN BUY THEM HERE.
After settling everything online shop related, stressed out,and still no sufficient amount of sleep, and super hungry we still headed off and had dinner at Backyard Burger and satisfied our grumbling stomachs.
As I got back to my dorm room, I read my favorite parts from the book Edie; Girl on Fire, and watched both Poor Little Rich Girl and, Factory Girl, while doing the finishing touches to my school projects.
She would have been 69 years old, if she's still alive today. :(
I don't know why I find Edie's life, even tho is short and tragic, I still find it beautiful and inspiring.
I'm twisted like that.
No, maybe, it gives me that Live Fast, Die Young kinda vibe.
Ya, that's definitely it.
Edie, we'll send cigs, speed and drinks...as gifts.
If ever there's a way we could!!! :'(
We will forever love you Edie!!!
The day, that I passed my projects and headed straight to my home town, and as I got back, the power is out. Its due to the lightning storm I guess. What a welcome (insert sarcasm sign here). Pffft. What am I complaining about I'm with my family, what more can I ask for?
Drive me away cuz the nigh just feels right
take me away with you tonight
anywhere with you...
