Something in OLD (Part 2)

Yesterday, we celebrated Korea's semestral break and decided to come up with a Retro Party. There were still few classes, but every teachers(PM and AM) were excited to look with their enchantress hippie/retro/vintage look. On the otherhand, I wore a classy dress together with my gold or bronze accessories then I just brush up my hair. T'was fun seeing myself imitating an image on the google plus seeing my officemates showcasing their stuff too. The pantry was also designed well with flowers, asymmetrical shapes, disco ball and lights.

Simple happiness

I'm not really an aspiring painter or cartoonist. There were rare moments when I simply wanted to combine different colors on paper and  just let my imagination fly. It may not be as pretty as others masterpiece but atleast, I'm able to express myself through this and noone can stop from doing so.:)

There are days...

Give Yourself Permission to Be You

1. Stop censoring your actions. Be you? the only you there is. No one else is qualified for the job.

2. Have fun, have a sense of humor and have a million laughs.

3. Be an optimist; be the person you were as a child. Do something new, exciting and different. Look at life from a different point of view.

4. Get curious; ask a trillion questions, and experience the joy in looking for the answers.

5. Make new friends and cherish the old (some are silver and the others gold).

6.  Invite creativity to become as much a part of the fabric of your daily life as your everyday routines like making the bed, cooking meals, cleaning the house and caring for the people you love. Look at these everyday, seemingly mundane tasks and see where you can infuse them with spirit, individuality and fun.

Lively life

This quote by Gilda Radner, the comedian who died too young, is a great reminder of the importance of being you:

"While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die, whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness."

Something in OLD (Part 1)

 I have this certain fancy for vintage things. I just find it cool and funky. There are days when I would wear vintage clothes, listen to old songs, watch old movies. Is that considered to be nostalgia? Well, I think, it's more on I appreciate those because I was born with the family of old people(grannies)- so I'm aware of old photos and albums, long  playing, vintage cameras, Sanrio stationeries, Natalie Cole's big discs, traditional phones, sakbayan(vintage car) and Mustang '69.

I remember the question in the ice breaker- it's a box that contains hypothetical questions. It goes like this: If you were to be born in another era, what would it be and why? I always choose 1940's-70's era. There were so many wonderful inventions, personalities, events that happened on those times that changed the world's face. No wonder when you asked old people-they're so interesting because they would gladly talk about older days.

It makes me realize how the fast phasing world started with a humble beginning. I love the process. I love recreations and recycling. I love to differentiate.

There's something in old that makes me value more-it's the thing that could stay longer. The older it gets, the longer it'll stay. And the longer it'll stay, the more you'd experience life's marvel.

More to that, it widens my creativity to make something new from old. When I found an old material-let's say a dress, it's a chance for me to think of a way on how to embellish it uniquely.

See, I'm very young but I have an old soul..;)
I have a modern life, but I have an old-fashioned perpective and values.

I'm blessed for that.

cool! *-*
