I’m sorry for the lack of updates in the past few months, let’s all thank thesis for that. Not much digital illustrations either, I will make up for it after I graduate, I promise. Anyway, just to share some tidbits of the colorful days amidst the current whirlwind called thesis, and to free my computer – which I renamed Gendry *ASOIAF fans holler* – of some disk space, here are some snapshots of my first experience at Cubao X last December 8.
To belatedly celebrate our maknae’s 23rd birthday, some friends and I watched Wreck It Ralph before roaming around Cubao X and eventually crashing at CBTL Trinoma.
Very cute porcelain tea set.
My heart danced for joy when I saw miniature food. In jars.
If stealing wasn’t a crime…..
Miniature band instruments, yes.
We chanced upon Bellini’s, which my friend said was where the restaurant scenes of One More Chance (Basha and Popoy fans holler) were shot.
details. Colonnade – not very detailed at this part but I believe these were supposed to be Corinthian columns. Just a little brush up on Greek architecture – a column has 3 parts: capital, shaft, and base. You can tell which order of architecture a column is by looking primarily at its capital, or the one just on top of the shaft or the circular ‘post’ which most mistake as [just] the column; It is part of the column. Below the shaft is the base, right on top of the floor. If the capital looks like a simple polygonal bowl, it’s doric. If it looks like a scroll, it’s ionic. If it’s intricate with ferns and flowers and leaves, that’s corinthian, and it’s common. Here’s a visual aid:
Zero love life calls for some Frostings cupcakes (thank you maknae Zoe) and oatmeal cookies. We concluded that the YunJaeMin wives, meaning us, will be having another cold Christmas this year.
Yep, I love my spontaneous dynamite gals.
