Thoughts and feelings… a story of never ending divide and compromise… but no winners and no losers… they are after all… me.
My girlfriend says I’m a cat magnet! Everywhere I go I find cats! The most recent one was when I went to check on the holiday house by the beach and found this guy strolling in our garden.
I really hope he’s still there. 🙂
This was at a wedding venue last year. That’s the ceiling.
Lantern in my sister’s house. Last year.
Enjoying a cup of coffee and a yu-gi-oh game in January this year.
My nephew found a snail. Told him to put it back; he said he liked how it felt as it crawled on his skin! January this year.
Slinky chilling/warming. A cold winter, this year!
Flash tempting me for a photoshoot! Also January this year.
Sometimes, technical perfection can go to hell!
I like this one. On my way to the beach at around sunset, I shot this with the phone which was already on b&w mode (my standard).
I didn’t give the phone time to breathe. It’s probably why the photo is blurred a bit. Just wanted to snap a photo and send it to my girlfriend before I lost signal!
This kinda proves my belief that a photo doesn’t have to look all neat and nice for it to mean something to someone.
Since I wasn’t posting much these past few months. I think sharing some photos from that time is a good idea. It was relatively less stressful time.
I still had space in my mind to read an Umberto Eco book on the rooftop! Not that Stripes let me do that in peace though. When cats own you, cats own you!
Where do I begin?
It’s been a while… a long while. I haven’t posted anything here since august last year. Not for the lack of trying though. Life just happens and you don’t know what you’re doing most of the time. You can’t figure out your “place” nor what you’re supposed to do. Days pass, one is okay the next not so much. It goes on and on. Slow and fast at the same time. Confused by contradictions within your own skin, you exist and that is all.
Such feelings of non-belonging and frustration over the limits of my own life brought me to an idea for a new photography series. I started working on it for a while but then it kinda got too depressing for me and my thinking was I need less depression not more. Now when I’m writing this, I’m thinking I was probably wrong; maybe I need to put it all in something and get it over with.
Well, today I got a notification from WordPress: “Happy Anniversary!”
I guess now I’ll try to post here again. I haven’t held a camera in at least 3 months. I don’t even know what to post. The fact that I’m writing this means that I’m interested in sharing again so I’ll figure it out.
For now I can share this.
I was playing around with Photoshop the other day and I ended up with a simple logo for this blog.
I will try to revisit the project I mentioned earlier and finish it this time.
A Short, Sweet and Magical Post
This is Kuro and Fluff in mythical beast form, 1.5 the size and a hundred times cuter! They’re owning the rooftop and the hearts of the neighbors (and mine too^^) I mean, how can’t they?
Like you, I watch them grow by the day as Waseem chronicles their cuteness. I’m not there physically to take care of them, but it feels like they’re my own… er, co-own rather. I wouldn’t want Waseem’s neighbors to chase me hahahaha (Some of Waseem’s neighbors expressed their desire to take the kittens as pets once they’re old enough.)
Kuro, Fluff and mommy Stripes brighten our day, and I hope they brighten yours too. Til the next post!

Hello everyone! I got a real treat for you today.
Fluff and Kuro are growing up fast! And they’re becoming even more adorable and likeable. I even forgot to take photos and was just watching them play around. Don’t you worry though, we’re all getting out daily fix of cuteness today.
(Some of these photos are processed better than the others. Sorry about that.)
They’re getting used to their new home which is now an old refrigerator (more specifically, its freezer!) They go out more now and come back inside only to sleep (they do that a lot though).
I’m truly happy about this for two reasons: the first being technical (I won’t bore you with specific details). It’s just easier to take photos of them while they’re out in the open with more light as opposed to inside (before: the box, now: the freezer) with only a couple of angles available to me (that’s my why my composition has been dull and amateurish so far). Now I can do better. The second reason is… well, also selfish…. I just want to be able to enjoy watching them play around as much as I can!
Our cute protagonists inside the “freezer”!
Right outside the “freezer”, In the spirit of comic-cons, Kuro cosplaying as Fluff’s shadow! Before this, he was Fluff’s pillow!
I hope you enjoyed the extra photos in this post. Look forward to the next one!
Hello everyone! Before I get to it I want to tell you that I’m really happy writing this post right now. Yesterday, I thought there will never be another entry in this post series again. (I tried writing the story but I just can’t get it right. So let’s lazily leave it at that and jump to the photos! (only one decent shot of the kittens today))
The box has been moved to a safer place. I only have one angle to take photos from but that’s fine as long as Fluff and Kuro are safe. I couldn’t capture Kuro today.
This is one of the best cat photos I’ve taken so far. All of the photos are mostly for web; this one however is definitely print material! Look how beautiful Stripes is!
I didn’t think I’d get the chance to take decent photos of Kuro this quick! I’m glad I did.
Today, Kuro proved that my initial impression of him was wrong. He was really playful and eager to get out of the box which is currently their home. Because of that, I was able to take clearer shots of him.
Kuro was able to steal most of my attention today (about damn time!) but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Fluff!
They really wanted to get out of the box and explore today. They were relentless in trying to climb the box walls (without success, of course). I got them out for a while then put them back in. I really don’t know what’s best for them at this point, keep them in or let them out and then set the box in a way so they can go back inside it on their own. They’re in the rooftop of a building not in the street so that’s good but still. So far, I’m playing it safe keeping them in until they’re older or someone with experience tells me what I should do.
