debuts

Photography Ventures

Yup, with my newest resolve to become a better blogger and more artistic person, I’ve decided to take up a bit of photgraphy. XD

Well, they’re not really like… classroom-like lessons. I’m actually learning from my new friends in PnSers.com on which cameras are good, how to tweak pictures (though I prefer minor editing in mine) and other vital information on photography. It’s actually a lot harder than i thought… harder than trying to buy gold online.

In fact, the image you see in this post is actually one of the fruits of my labor. This image won our First Photo Challenge in the site. It’s a small victory, but it sure helped in boosting a bit of my confidence in camera handling. I seem to have a problem with my hands, since I’m shaking a bit when I’m taking pictures. ~_~

Anyway, I hope to buy a new camera soon, since the camera that I used for this picture is actually my sister’s. I hope you guys stay tuned for more of my pictures! XD

Of Debuts…

Whew. So tired.

It’s been almost 3 days since my cousin’s debut, but I’m still bushed.

But I guess considering the work I do also, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I’m tired often. XD

Anyway, my lovely cousin, Jessica, just had her debut last June 5th. My cousin is 18 years old, man! How amazing is that?! It seems like it was only yesterday that she was clutching my stuffed teddy bear and was crying in her mom’s lap because she couldn’t have it (but I gave it to her anyway).

I’m not really a big fan of debuts. I never had one. All I had when I turned eighteen was 3,000 pesos that I used to treat my friends to Jollibee, then eat out with my sister and cousin on a nearby Pares restaurant near our boarding house. Very classy, no? I always thought that celebrating your “entrance” to the adult world when you turn 18 seem pretty vague. I guess it’s just me. My parents are really practical people, hence, we were raised to think that some celebrations are not really that necessary. My sister had a pretty good debut, though. When she turned 18, my mom treated us and her friends to a local bar where she allowed my sister to drink her first ever alcoholic drink. How’s that for welcoming adulthood? XD

But I guess, in Jessica’s case, it’s pretty good, considering she is the only daughter.

This is my lovely cousin. Ain’t she pretty? XD

Anyway, before her debut, I was very annoyed. First of all, I was an hour and a half late for work, then I had to get out of work before 5 (meaning a probable cut in my paycheck), THEN, it was raining like crazy! By the time I got home, they were getting ready to leave, and they had to stuff me in the car even though I was wet with rain. ~_~

Luckily, my sister brought clothes for me, and my relatives have already rented a nice, posh hotel room in the venue. It was pretty cool, specially since our older relatives allowed us (my cousins) to stay together for the night and have fun. And it was VERY fun. My male cousins made me laugh so hard because they were testing the beds if they were sturdy or if they made noises. Haha! Looks like they were testing if they could imitate Hayden Koh. XD

The debut was pretty good too. My cousins and I had a great time, not to mention I had a great, big plate of warm food for dinner. Then we danced a lot too, turns out that my cousin’s college friends were party animals. (What do you expect?! They’re CEU students! Same as me! XD)

Yep, that’s me with the weird, white flower on my ear with glasses.I had my back turned this time, I was cheering on my Aunt who was dancing with my sister. XD

Anyway, the after party was where the real fun started. My cousins and a few of Jica’s friends came over to “initiate” her into adulthood by giving her her first alcoholic beverage… namely tequila and vodka. Unfortunately for me, since I was very tired from work, half a bottle of vodka and two shots of tequila knocked me to sleep. But I was still awake when my cousin got tipsy enough to get dizzy. XD

All in all, it was a pretty fun party. I got to spend some time with my cousins, got to drink vodka, and most of all, was able to welcome my cousin to adulthood with nice shot of tequila. Well worth leaving an hour early at work. Honestly, an alcoholic drink is always the best way to welcome someone into the world of adulthood.
