LARAWAN – is a Filipino term which simply mean photograph.
I see LIFE as a series of photographs connected by emotions… joyful, sad, hopeful, fearful…. complicated until we are able to put the pieces of the puzzle together and eventually realize how wonderful LIFE has been.
For years I am working in the busy (sometimes stressful but mostly entertaining) world of retail fashion. I’m in love with fashion. It’s a dream come true to be earning a living doing what I love most – SHOPPING. I can say that I am an expert in this field. But then no matter how much you like something… (when everything works like clockwork and you don’t think anymore, when waking up in the morning takes so much effort because deep in your heart you’re already looking for something else that will give that adrenaline rush)… there will come a time when YOU WILL FEEL TIRED. And it happened to me, I am just plain exhausted. I needed to be excited again. Get thrilled! Be free to express my self, share my art, reveal how I see the world. I need to find another channel to unleash my creativity. Thus the birth of this blog…
I realized that there is one more thing I want to become… a writer / photographer. Something inside me found pleasure in telling stories… about the places I’ve seen, food I’ve eaten, experience I have done, people I’ve met, etc, etc… I am happy to explore anything and everything. There is an un-explainable pride in my heart looking at the pictures I have taken to document a journey or a new discovery. I want to inspire people…there is so much to say, so much to share and this is how I am doing it. I want to touch the lives of people by turning simple photos into beautiful works of art.
Welcome! I hope you like it here. Feel free to explore and leave a comment , I would love to hear from you. I appreciate your honesty but please be gentle with my heart.
Life is a choice, you can either be happy or stay in misery – good or bad – brave or coward, but at the end of the day it is how you have LIVED & LOVED that matters the most. Live with joy in your heart!
