coucou my dear invisible friend

Following the gals Yola, Ochie, and Fenny, I started playing the Friends For Sale game in Facebook. They're loving it a lot, cos the game got them to meet amazingly wonderful friends from around the world.
I don't get to make friends as much as they do, cos aside to that I'm not as active as they are in the game, apparently I'm not sociable at all even cyber-worldly hahaha :)) But from the few I have, they've been very kind and wonderful it got me amazed that we can actually make friendship connection with people you've never met in person.
This one is also my owner in the game, Masta Juice. His real name is Léonard. I like him because of his kindness, his great collection in the game, and also I learned little bits of French from him! Oui! And also that he has not released me from his collection even though I've been inactive for a very very long time :)) I love spoiling him with design posts on his wall, well at least that's the only thing I can do for a cyber good friend.
*thank you Léonard, you are superb! hope you're having fun in your trip around Asia. India will be wonderfully exotic I bet! take care Masta, bisous!

happy to meet you, macarons!

Three little merriments arrived at the table with Irma this morning in form of three pieces of macarons. She knows how I've been very curious of em cute little treats, and today she kindly brought coffee, rose, and pistachio to taste! Yes, this is the first time in my twenty seven years to have a bite of macarons and I am loving em!

Thank you Irma, they made my day :">

dracula, a final project

Thought I've lost all the files for good...turns out one of the backup CDs survives! These are some of the items of my {fictional} Bram Stoker's Dracula Theater Play promotional design back in 2004 made for the final project at college.
I decided to do something that I truly love, instead of socially noble issues that were famous at that time for high grade tendencies hihi :P Ah, screw the numbers! So what else do I love more...Dracula! {thanks to Ipit who encouraged me on this}
Unfortunately due to a very oh very limited budget I had, I couldn't afford any kind of photo shooting or image purchasing for the designs. So I scanned these dreamy photographs I found in an old W magazine edition, and edited them to death with these curly twirlies and stuff to meet my idea.
Though I surely never got any commercial (or anything more than an A) benefit from them, I really feel bad for using those awesome photographs without legal permission...
My sincere apologies to the wonderful photographer and art director and all the dreamy cast...and a big thank you for making my Dracula dream come true...specially in these two favorites of mine...

Here's the original images I scanned from the W magazine spread for those two posters...

about a dearly beloved

She prefers to meet death now, instead of her hours of peeping seeking in the bookstores, or her endless hunt for sweet creepy creatures, or the old bitching-together-with-me session at the coffee shop, or giddy talks about the cute fatty boy she fancies, or giddy talks about the skinny nancy boy I fancy, or her big red spirit she burns in her guts, or her hardworking faith she inspires me with, or anything else I know she used to prefer.
Maybe she has changed too much. I know I have changed too much. Maybe she just doesn't have enough time. I know I don't share mine enough for her. Maybe she has just truly given up. I know I'll never give up on her.
But then again, it's just too easier to say than to do. And then again, it's just too hard to find the right things to say. And in the end again, I never know the right things to do. And it's too sad to find it this way, when she has always been the one that I know will say and do the right things.
I hope you'll find your sunshine again soon, dear sister. You are my best friend in the whole universe. I am sorry not to know how to ease you from the whole universe.
I will heart you a million billion hearts always.
