Because honestly, I'm such an awkward dresser

Because I honestly look awkward a whole lot-- and well, I was playing around with newly downloaded apps.

Of a Dream

Trapped in this vast, void darkness,
I walk with arms bound and eyes wide open,
although I do not see a thing. 
I do not stop. 
Feeling and groping as I went,
never pausing, 
not noticing there were even others. 
in my own unparalleled mind, 
I was, 
and always will be, 
I feel my heart, 
thank God it still beats.
I now have the need to be assured I still live. 
I walk. 
I run. 
But eternity streches far beyond where I can reach. 
I see a light, 
but it is not for me. 
I am failing. 
I have started to fall. 

I wake up at the foot of my bed, 
with a short lived moment of relief as I realize; 
Dearest, I have just witnessed a dream of my emotions. 

(Written by yours truly,  January 10, 2005. Still one of my favorites.)

Wooden Spoon Katipunan

Like I mentioned earlier, I've been falling in love with small, hole-in-the-wall restaurants from up north lately and Wooden Spoon is one of those restaurants.

The Animal Welfare Situation

By Anna Isabel C. Rodriguez

The author with just some of her pet dogs on a normal weekend.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way animals are treated,” Mahatma Gandhi said.

The young doktora smiles as she proudly shows this quote. We are in the City Hall, inside the busy Health office. Being interviewed is Dr. Karen Vicencio, City Vet, ParaƱaque’s one-woman Animal Welfare Division.

According to Section 7 of Republic Act 9482 or the Anti-Rabies Act of 2007, local government units (LGUs) are not only required by law to employ a veterinarian, they are also required to establish and maintain a city pound and a city veterinary office. The latter provisions have yet to see light as ParaƱaque struggles to implement RA 9482. In the meantime, Dra. Vicencio, seemingly misplaced in the City Health Office, looks to the future for possible programs and improvements.

Animal Welfare in the Back Seat

Republic Act 8485  of the Animal Welfare Act of 2008 calls for humane and proper treatment of animals, penalizes animal torture and neglect, and empowers the Bureau of Animal Industry to regulate animal handling through proper issuance of permits.

Skirts on a windy day

These photos were taken in school, probably one of the last sets of photos I took and will be taking in that location. Top and skirt sponsored by Sam's Station.

New hair and gray themes

Got new hair! 

I should've expected that I'd get tired of my semi-blonde ombre this quickly. Finally (well this happened last week), I had my hair coloured. Had everything colored an odd shade of brown/purple and voila, a safer, less conspicuous ombre.
