Grand Canyon

I was taking my brother's picture!

Grand Canyon

Awesome view!!!

Grand Canyon

We drove from vegas to arizona to see one of the seven wonders of the
world, the grand canyon. It's pretty amazing, the view is just
fantastic. We spent most of our time taking pictures but since im
uploading this thru my iphone, my photos are limited.
But we couldn't really spend a lot of time on the deck because it was
soooo cold... Cold for someone who came from a very humid Manila.
Others were walking in their shorts and spags... So weird!!

Viva Las Vegas!

I arrived in Vegas at around 830 pm (local time). It was one nice landing... the view of the city with all the lights from the airplane window is pretty cool. I love the strip with the dancing fountain and the fire show... I'kk post pictures some other time, the nice ones are in my brothers SLR.Anyhow, I'm also thinking of putting some of my shopping money on Pacquiao or even Hatton, I don't really understand the odds but i need to double my money for all the Marc Jacob items that I want to buy!!!

Anyway, I had my eye checked this morning since my grade is not getting any better and I wanted to know other options so that I can get rid of my contacts and glasses. And the verdict is... actually I was referred to a retinal specialist and it was scheduled on the 18th of May since our itinerary is already full til the 17th. So if the doctors can correct whatever thickening that I have in my retina, I might have to stay and not go home yet on the 19th which was my booked flight back to Manila. This is both good and bad news for me, bad because I might need to LOA for a term or 2, good because I'll have more time to travel, I really want go East.

I am so DEAD!!! I'm leaving the day after tomorrow and i haven't decided what to pack... I wanna bring my entire closet =0 the extreme weather is killing me!!! but nonetheless, i am so excited.

The Old New

Since this term was pretty light, I decided to take fashion merchandising in SOFA. I really enjoyed the class. We created our own line (just sketches of course). And our final project was deconstructing/recreating an old/ukay item. We went to the ukayukay place in Makati, i bought 5 items for this project but i couldn't destroy them... i had some really good finds and i was pretty sure i will destroy them... so anyway, i decided to work on my old hs uniform. here's the final result...

7 more days

I am so excited for my summer trip this year. it's been a while since my last "real" vacation. For the past couple of years, my out-of-the country trips were brief limited to Asia. In 7 days, I'm boarding my plane bound to...wait for it...VEGAS baby!!! Yes, the sin city! I wonder what changed since my last visit 3 years ago. My dad is still trying to get tickets for the May 2 battle between Pacquiao and Hatton at the MGM Grand. *fingers crossed* Next stop is a brief stay in Arizona. I don't know what to expect in Arizona, anything to be excited about?? oh well, then we'll go down south to Mexico. I have to practice my Spanish! Guess what's next?! all the way up north, we're going to cruise Alaska and Canada! I'm not really looking forward to the freezing weather, but I need to see it now before I'm old and suffering from rheumatism. Finally, L.A. and San Francisco! I really wanna watch American Idol live. Anyone knows how I can get it?

I'm still hoping to extend my stay to go EAST! I need to go to New York!!!

To do: Check the Weather, what should I pack???

Kaleisdoscope World by Francis M.

So many faces, so many races
Different voices, different choices
Some are mad, while others laugh
Some live alone with no better half
Others grieve while others curse
And others mourn behind a big black hearse
Some are pure and some half-bred
Some are sober and some are wasted
Some are rich because of fate and
Some are poor with no food on their plate
Some stand out while others blend
Some are fat and stout while some are thin
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world

Some are great and some are few
Others lie while some tell the truth
Some say poems and some do sing
Others sing through their guitar strings
Some know it all while some act dumb
Let the bassline strum to the bang of the drum
Some can swim while some will sink
And some will find their minds and think
Others walk while others run
You can't talk peace and have a gun
Some are hurt and start to cry
Don't ask me how don't ask me why
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world
