Jumping off from Part I of my February posts. And like, I don’t mean for this to happen, but it seems like my “dailies” posts always begin with a Recommended Food Place. In this instance, I’d like to commend Drive-By Taco Shop, located in Parañaque. I ordered two soft tacos—paprika shrimp and a Korean chicken one that seems like a new addition, so I don’t know if it’s a permanent item on the menu.
OK, so. This is so not my angle. Fun times with Beng, Bea V, Isa, and Abraham, who I hadn’t seen in years.
We spent the next day, February 13 (or Galentines, haha, so minus Abraham) at a very secluded beach! I don’t think we’re super beach people, so we mostly swam around and laid out in the sun when the water got too cold. Of course, we ate, too. I hadn’t been at the beach in a while, so I was really happy about this short trip.
It was so nice and quiet.
Before and after sun exposure!
Then most of the third week of February was spent on the Art Fair, which I’ve linked in a hundred other blog posts (so I won’t right now, because uh, rebellion). Beng was featured in the Art Fair magazine we worked on for The Philippine Star—not nepotism. We asked people like gallerists to name artists they think should be on our young artists list, and Isa Lorenzo of Silverlens named Beng. :)
I like taking selfies with a sleeping Beng. I’m sure she hates it.
Isa and Tata were some of the people who passed by!
You know what, I couldn’t tell you why I seem to like taking photos like this one but um, there’s an abundance in my camera roll, so hi.
On one of the Art Fair days, there was a party, sort of, at Cubao. I’ve only been a handful of times, but it’s one of my favorite places to be invisible and just watch people (like a creep, and also not really).
So, my realization after sorting through my February photos is what I really miss my sister! Coincidentally, her birthday was last Saturday (the 11th), which makes her a Gemini, but I love her in spite of it, haha.
Also, my dad is convinced that Noah enjoys this kind of proximity. Even though he looks like that when he gets hugged. And also, I face-swapped with my dad and clearly, it is the most horrifying.
I have a lot of these shots in my phone. I like it when he cuddles next to or lies down near me, so I tend to document them. I had also started working some time this month, as evidenced by the sulfur dotting my stressed out face in the first picture.
More Noahs from February—A GREMLIN NOAH (such a weird face/expression? IDK) and a sleeping baby Noah—
