i'm the KAREN with the SMILE ;) at the end. ;)

I love to explore the world and create new ideas, inspire people, and try to make the most out of things. I try to find happiness in life especially when things start to get miserable, stressful, or just plain boring. I love the art of life. Art is my passion. I love to draw ever since I was a little girl. My passion for it never fades and just grows into something wonderful each and everyday. It helped me a lot in my design career and hopefully it will forever. ♥ ü

I also have interest in baking and Italian cooking. ;> I tend to experiment sometimes in creating a dish that I'd love to eat! ;D Haha ;))

I also love adventures! ;D Going to different places and doing new or interesting and fun stuff really makes my day! ;D I love to be with nature through hiking, river trekking, and hopefully will try some extreme sports someday. ;D hehehe ;p ;)

Rail. Road. Sky. ;) | Happy Easter! ;)

03.30.2013

Rail. Road. Sky. ;)

I miss travelling to other countries. I remember there was a super tiring day when we, one of my sisters, my brother, and I, had a looong train ride, similar to Subway Surf kind of trains and railroads with never-ending graffiti on the walls, until the province-like views of mountains, hills, and fields on our way to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and went back to Florence before sunset. It was so tiring, but I had to absorb it myself that I was there that very moment and make the most out of it. So after eating dinner, my brother and I looked for the landmarks using our purchased map (Since I lost my phone in Rome airport, realized before we get into the bus that I left it on top of the toilet paper holder in the female’s comfort room cubicle INSIDE the airport—first washroom after getting out of the plane :( A looong story cut short) to see the amazing architecture and sculptures of the wonderful Florenzi. ;) By the “I saw the sign” moment was in Moulin Rouge, where policemen in casual clothes approached, that freaked us out, to warn us not to use our tablets, taking pictures, and the DSLR camera. That was one of the ohmygod moments and one of the bloopers for the entire trip! On minor blooper was when my sister with her luggage didn’t make it into the train like our MRT/LRT here in Manila. :)) Hahaha! I can still picture her face! :)) And the man who tried to open the door or to stop it from closing. Hahaha! :)) It was epic. But amongst all of it, the top 1 major event was really my lost 7” tablet—as big as my face! That black case really fit well on that tissue holder. I appreciated the design at first ‘cause there’s a mini shelf on the upper left part of the right enclosure panel, perfect or the soze of the DSLR, plus a hook for my white bubble jacket. I get somewhat panic-y when going to the restroom ‘cause I take more time than usual people. I even fixed the mini Eiffel Tower soivenir in my KK white polkadotted pink handcarry bag, which I borrowed from my sister. I don’t want to return it with a hole of course! Haha ohwell. Life. Samsung galaxy phones.. Hay :\

Back to the transportation, it is really tiring to ride the plane, short travel trains and inter-city trains, and bus, and walk with a 15-20kg of luggage (thanks to the invention of the 4-wheeled luggage! It really helps but its the same when walking on angled pavements), 7kg hand carry bag, another hand bag, dslr, and layers of autumn-winter clothes! That happened last year during our semestral break. It really is an experience to remember. :) There were times when I remove my jacket for a long period of time for the sake of having a great picture with th place and my clothes. Haha! :)) “Tiis-lamig, tiis-ganda” Normal, zoom focus and blurred, talikod candid, jumpshot, sinakulo, dumi sa paa. Hahaha! :)) With our blocking and sequence for the “photoshoot” segments. Hahaha! :P

I wonder when we will we go back. I miss it. I want to travel more and experience the places and cultures of other people and take great pictures to capture the happy or sad, and adventurous moments in life. ;)

My sister will be with Karen, because Ale went to Canada for the internship, I think. Luna the crazy black and white cat, who played with us and with the red dot laser toy during our stay there, was evicted or transferred to another house. She was really playful, with big eyes and curious mind. Haha! ;) The old type of elevator and toilet flush with lots of tissue stocks and the old school heater. I miss the morning routine, instagram with my tab and skype with mommy. Haha ;) I will definitely go and see the interiors of Alexander.. I mean Antoni Gaudi’ Casa Battlo when and if I get back. I wonder if the amazing Sagrada Familia’s construction will be finished by then. Haha ;)

That’s a part of what we experienced last October-November of 2012. Still thinking if I can post throwback photos of the cathedrals and basilicas. Early to bed, early to rise. One last post in Instagram for tonight (bonding with Redgine Mae with mommy and kuya) ‘cause I am sooo sleepy that I retyped what I remember that was not copied in this blog entry that stopped uploading. Thanks.. Haha ;) (10:41pm turned to 11:19pm) We will leave the house by 4am tomorrow morning for the slubong in UP Sunken Garden, with relatives including Redgine Mae plus Bambam and Precious? for Easter Sunday! ;) I’ll be needing this sleep.

Good night and sweet dreams! :) Happy Easter! ;)

Edit: Plus sea (boat in Venice) ;)

Back to school tomorrow! :D @mushroomkaboom I think I missed a lot already, lecture and friends.. ;)

11.12.2012

It’s been a great trip, well, maybe it’s not a perfect one, but what’s important is that we’ve been to all the places we planned to go and arrived home safe and sound after the fun, yet busy schedule of trips. Haha! :D Jet-setter ang peg! :)) Air, land, and water.. Wings, wheels, rails (mala-Subway Surfers! Haha), feet, sail. Three cities in a day, miles away from home. This is one of the most memorable experiences, from major to minor details! Lots of kwento! :D Intense Haha :P And I shall look for the Louvre photo soon. ;) *HoA drawings came into reality! :D #blog #eurotrip #Europe #Spain #Barcelona #France #Paris #Italy #Rome #Florence #Pisa #Venice #Milan #Singapore #MNL #Manila #Philippines #karen;) #kuya #atemarie #atejean #mommy #atecarmie #ija #mandy #tour #trip #love #travel #event #airplane #SingaporeAirlines #HungerGames #StepUpRevolution #StepUp #Ryanair #Vuelling #tab #life #memories I missed #Bambam and #Precious! Si #Luna! Haha #Taffy #Princess #houseupv #sembreak

Thesis mode tonight! Floor plans and site development plan in A3 paper due tomorrow. Three days a week this sem.. I’m gonna miss my friends more, I think. More school sick days. Haha Oh well, there’s always a way. :)

I feel so lethargic right now. Kind of sleepy and dizzy. Is it because of jet lag? I think I better sleep now and fix my body clock. Then, must wake up early in the morning to layout my plans, sort of SDP? and go to school early. Hihi Bonding and printing. I hope I’ll be able to fall asleep easily for if you know what I mean. Hoping for a great day tomorrow and to have a good feeling! Good night! #;)

Filipino designer creates World’s 1st Biodegradable car
World renowned Filipino product designer Kenneth Cobonpue has created the world’s first and only biodegrable car made out of bamboo and rattan called the Phoenix.
Cobonpue is known for his signature designs using natural fibres and materials. The Phoenix is his latest venture in partnership with design apprentice Alberth Birkner which is created using rattan, steel, bamboo and nylon. Showcased for the first time at the “Imagination and Innovation” exhibit at Milan, the Phoenix is a testament of high quality craftsmanship to create an environmental friendly solution to transport.

This is what I’ve been waiting for!!! :D I’ve seen it while it was under construction as featured on the television by Kenneth Cobonpue. I really love his designs and his creativity and the innovation of his masterpiece and works of art. Really fascinating and cool, I would say. Great work indeed! Well, I don’t want to say work because it really is not work. It is something out of a passion. Keep it up! I hope to visit his gallery or studio in Cebu someday or maybe just all of his works. Haha! :P I am proud to be a Filipina. ;)
