Wear Black To Summer! #4

"You stole what was left of my heart. And now I've lost you forever."
-- Maleficent

The movie touched the deepest recesses of my hollow heart but disappointed my love for dark origins of fairy tales again. However I realized I was being stupid to expect an adaptation with a plot as morbid and bloody as the first versions of The Sleeping Beauty when I remembered Disney films are usually mild and mostly for family viewing.

That's my brother's fingers.

Twisted and magnificent, the film left the audiences
with magic lingering in their hearts ♥

Wear Black to Summer! #3

Here's the summer highlight for the year. We went to the beach, which my aunt said is called "Sherlock Beach" for reasons unknown -- a name which had me and my sister immediately look at each other, being the Sherlock Holmes fans that we are.

I hate swimming under the cruel sun for fear I might perish from burning. Though I admit I got a bit tempted to take a dip in the shore and join them in their merry laughter but I was hindered by another fear: the fear of turning the sea RED if I stay in the water for too long! (If you know what I mean. *wink, wink*)

I had my sister take this photo because the cloud looks somewhat like Frankenweenie! #FrankenweenieCloud ♥
Don't you guys just think so?? [source]
Lemme take a selfie! Ew.
Don't you just love water-muh-lone?

Forgive my nose.

I got a bit drowsy from the warm breeze and the shade of the trees so I went to my uncle's house which is just around two blocks away with my sister and my brother and his girlfriend. I thought I might get some sleep there but the heat was just crazy. So I just read the remaining afternoon away with this book I bought weeks ago.

I hate the heat.

Wear Black to Summer! #2

Personally, I've never felt the importance of Mother's Day in my life but I know how it means to other people so let me just say..

Today we cooled the summer heat off with some homemade halo halo. It's a Filipino desert with mixtures of shaved ice and evaporated milk, various boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits served in a tall glass or bowl. Usually restaurants now serve it with scoops of ice cream on top. We made our own version though: we blended 5 different kinds of fresh fruits, added evaporated and condensed milk, then topped it off with vanilla ice cream and Milo balls. And oh yeah, Stick-O. I don't know what this is. It's more or less a halo halo alright. By the way don't say "hey-low hey-low". Say "hah-loh hah-loh". I just laughed at how you read it in your head. Hahahahaha xD

Later that afternoon, we gave Grandma a special visit even though we knew she doesn't know what day it was anymore haha this is what I wore.

As for my sister, look at this adorable ensemble! :D

Happy Mama's Day!


SURPRISE. I made the bonnet by the way oh god am I so proud.
Guess who's baaaaaaack! Hahahaha in case you forgot who I am, hi I'm Minxie and I own a blog that has barely been touched for more or less 6 months. A brick fell down my head and my heart finally has space and POOF! I'm back to blogging world. Though the cause may be that my brother has a good phone with a good camera and I can borrow it because he's just cool with it, I can never deny that the comments and messages I received all because of this blog have inspired me to come back. My declamation piece post most especially, has received quite the recognition and use to both readers and non-readers. I would like to say thank you to everyone who loved and used "Sanity on Fire" for their school activities! Guess what, it even gave them good grades. Talk about a well-fed ego HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *coughs* joking. So yeah HELLO HELLO HELLOOOOOOOO! :D I'll post back issues this time, I promise, I swear I'm serious this time. Like why I wore something like that up there^.

Wear Black to Summer! #1

Sister turns a year older on the 4th of May. This year, we lazed the whole day off at Crown Regency Guadalupe.

PS: Sorry for some of the photos. The quality isn't that.. well..


I'm not into summer. You guessed that right. It's my least favorite time of the year, though except for the fact that it's when we don't have school to worry about. I'm not into sun and sand, waves and shades, feet and heat. So I didn't join them for a swim, I just took pictures. Nevertheless, take a look at the vintage-inspired interior of the hotel's lounge! And all the old-fashioned objects! Forget the summer feel, I'm lovin' the vintage ambience! ♥



HAHAHAHA le brother

My sister's going great with her outfits! Sisters are sisters :D

These just don't mix.
I hate the heat.
