The public library in Cebu City is operational. We once checked it out on a weekend, and it was closed. But it’s open on weekdays. While the materials I was looking for were not found there, I noticed the library had many classic and contemporary books that were for borrowing. I think the borrowing process is complicated though — you need to fill up a form and have it signed by the barangay captain or councilor. But I guess that’s one way of proving you are a citizen of the city (?). Anyhow, I captured these flowers from the library. A more comprehensive entry on the library is here.
My friend, Nestie, gave birth to a baby girl today. A month ago, we had a photoshoot in their home one rainy Sunday. There was no theme in particular, we just played with the laid-back vibe of a happy home and a rainy Sunday afternoon.
My being a woman makes me a candidate for breast cancer. There is no one specific cause for breast cancer except for what medicine men/women would say “a change in one’s DNA” causing normal breast cells to become cancer. I don’t know how that works exactly but I think that means there is nothing I can do. There are risk factors though. Smoking, diet, lifestyle, and genes, age, race, family history (yes, nothing we can do) increase risk to getting breast cancer. There are also unverified rumors on what increases risk to breast cancer (working on night shifts?). So, because we are women, the best we can do is take good care of ourselves, and be supportive of others who are enduring the pains of having breast cancer, and have that regular chitchats with our doctors (not necessarily medical doctors because not everyone believes in them, and not believing in them is not wrong).
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (Pink October) and just an excuse to wear pink, I wore this vintage polka dot dress that’s a size bigger for me, and could be the larger and darker version of this, in front of a shrub of pink gumamelas.
I’m wearing vintage pink polka dot dress, thrifted belt, and thrifted shoes, and a funny smile, which reminds me of the comment my grandma always tells me, you have a “MonaLisa” smile. Whatever that means.
My boyfriend and I spent one Sunday having another double date. We (actually, only my boyfriend) took maternity shots of our friend, Nestie and Jay-R, and had lots of fun even with the heavy rain. Our first (but not our last) maternity shoot. 😛 I love having photoshoots with friends because I can play a dream role, and they allow me to play a dream role, and we all have fun while being productive.
