#FAILURE

failure 

There was once an average girl who comes from a Chinoy family. She was neither talented nor was there anything that made her stand up from all the other girls. But she was obedient to her father. She occasionally fought with her mother, but her father was someone she would not dare disobey.

That was until she reached college. Despite her father’s constant reminders to not fall in love, she did. She fell in love again, and again, and again. Her father never noticed her though. He was too preoccupied with her brothers. So she continued disobeying and hiding things from her father.

It came to a point that she loved too much and got duped. She made a mistake and her parents found out, but still they took her in. Gave her another chance to redeem herself. She slowly got her life back together. But, as expected, her father became more strict. She was not allowed to go out and spend time with her friends. She usually stays at home or at their store.

As time passed by, she slowly got her freedom back. She couldn’t go out with her friends but they could visit her. Life became somewhat better.

That was until she failed yet again. This time, it was in the form of an exam. Yet again, she disappointed her father by failing a very important and expensive test. Her father hid his disappointment well. She only felt it when she was not allowed to spend time with friends or family again.

It was then that she realized that her father was ashamed of her. Ashamed of what she became. Ashamed of how she looked, what she became, and what she had not accomplished.

She sits in her room wondering if she would ever be more than her mistakes and failures. If she will ever redeem herself to her family. If she will ever get her life straight again.

Two Lover’s Point- GUAM

Photography, Travel

One of the, if not the most, beautiful and famous sites in Guam is the Puntan Dos Amantes otherwise known as the TWO LOVER’S POINT. It is located in Northern Guam at a cliff area overlooking Tumon Bay.

Legend says that there was once two lovers who chose to be forever in death rather than be apart in life.

It all started when Spain governed over Guam. There was a very wealthy Spanish man who was married to the daughter of a Chamorro chieftain. They had a daughter who was said to be honest, modest and beautiful.

One day, the girl’s father decided to have her marry a Spanish captain. When she discovered this, she ran all the way to the northern part of Guam where she found a hidden and peaceful shore. It was there that she met and fell in love with a young Chamorro warrior. He was said to be muscular and had eyes that “search meaning in the stars”

However, the girl’s father did not approve of the two lovers.

Her father insisted that she marry the spanish captain right away. It was then thag she decided that she would run away and be with the one she truly loved.

When her father found out that she ran away, they pursued the two lovers upto the high cliff at Tumon Bay. 

Trapped, the two lovers could do nothing but to stare at each other’s eyes and kiss. They then tied their long hair together and jumped down the cliff. The girl’s father and his soldiers could only watch in despair. 

The story and the place itself was truly magical. The entrance to the top costs about  3USD. But it’s definitely worth it. The view is absolutely breathtaking.


To all the lovers, you can buy locks and leave your messages. It is said that those who do this will stay together forever. Who knows right?😉

If ever you go to Guam, be sure to visit this place. You will not regret it!

Sweet and Edgy

Photography

A few weeks ago, I had the greatest pleasure in shooting one of the prettiest ladies in Dumaguete: ALIAH BARBA.

Originally, I wanted to have a sort of old school look. The one you see in the movie Pearl Harbor. The red lipstick, the tight shirt and puffy skirts.

After looking at the clothes she brought, I decided to go on a different route. Aliah was one of those girls who didn’t need that much make up to accentuate her features. I’ve known her since she was in high school. She always has this sweet smile that brightens up her face.

 

But this is the “ALIAH” that everyone knows. So I decided to spice things up a little. The results were amazing. I love it when my models know how to deliver. It was a huge help that she was very photogenic.
