My Life in Moving Photos | 3

Finally got the PHHHOTO app on my android phone and I like that it has become my go-to social media app for ordinary and non-out of this world updates. Much like what SnapChat is for most people these days.

Since I don’t have a SnapChat account and I don’t want to be boring people with what may look like super ordinary photo counterparts of these GIFs when posted on Instagram, I choose to post more of the less artsy stuff on PHHHOTO. You see, I’ve become one of those super OC, feed-obsessed, Instagram addicts which was why I decided to make my feed more well-curated than it used to be. I remember how I used to post random, non-IG worthy photos which basically is every single thing you could imagine me taking a photo of.

So thank goodness for PHHHOTO for it has become my ultimate, semi-private, online, photo diary, but more fun because the photos are moving! Yes, they’re all in GIFs! And since it’s almost Christmas, most people have been posting twinkling lights almost every day, including yours truly!

Some of these photos were taken a week ago when my sister and I went to the FEAST in the Bay Area, and when we had to hail a private car (via Grab Car) to take us to Makati after, and some of those Christmassy photos I was talking about earlier, and yes if you take a look at one of the bigger phhhotos, the one on the top right, you could see of one of the cameras I recently bought, and one of the newest in my collection, a very lovely and sexy TLR!

And that’s it for tonight! We have 13 days left til Christmas! Can’t Wait!

 

My Weekend in Moving Photos

It was quite a long weekend for my family as one of our beloved lolas died last week. She was one of the coolest lolas I’ve known, literally, as she doesn’t seem to ever lose her cool, evidenced by her permanent and ever radiant and beaming smile.

We could only make it to the last night of her funeral, which was on a Saturday before she was laid to rest today. Unfortunately, apart from it being a manic weekend, a storm was about to enter the country too, so we were stuck in the rain, wet and cold…

After being stuck in traffic for quite a while, some of us had to go on a pee break and grab a quick bite before going back on the road, so off we went to, ‘their’ favorite happy place…

C5 was tolerable and SLEX was very much in our favor, so it didn’t take long before we got to the place and saw everyone all huddled up in a corner…

Some were…

while this one couldn’t resist picking up something to chew on… again…

Of course, we couldn’t call it a day unless there were selfies and groupfies taken, some even with one of the coolest lolos on earth!

I had to fix everyone’s eyebrows before going home at midnight, so were all like…

The next day, we were up at around 4:45-ish to 5 in the morning and before I know it, we were back on the road by 6 in the morning…

The night before, a car flew over and hit a concrete barrier perhaps ‘mid-flight’ and smashed his hood, while another one hit another barrier this morning, both along Ortigas extension. Typhoon Lando really hit us big time!

Thank God, we made it back to the funeral by 7-ish, safe and sound.

We were told that the mass will be at 7:30, so everyone was…

taking selfies again…JK!

They were all chillin’ like lola here…

After the mass, everyone had time to freshen up and to do some catching-up with everyone else…

The mood in the room lightened up a bit, but then again, everyone knew what was coming to them next and that nothing else could be any more painful than finally saying goodbye…

I hate funerals, but I love the fact that everyone comes together not only to pay tribute to the departed, but also to set everything aside to comfort and catch up with everyone else.

But like what the priest said, nothing’s more pathetic than talking to a corpse that wouldn’t be able to appreciate all the tears, apologies and gratitude one extends in funerals or in cemeteries. It wouldn’t be right, so yes, we all have to make amends and thank people while they’re still alive and not only when they’re on their death beds or worse, when they’re gone forever.

On a lighter note…

Hope everyone else stays safe and dry while we wait this one out! Do I really have to go back to work tomorrow? I mean look at the trees out my window!

Btw, I’m really loving this app, Gif Me! so I’m thinking of posting more stuff here and putting everything in a new series on my blog (My Life in Moving Photos) just for these photos that are too cool, they look like those magical paintings on Harry Potter!! I’m pathetic, I know! XD

My life in Moving Photos

I instantly fell in love with these amusing, playful and funny-looking moving pictures when I first saw a couple on Corinth‘s blog a few months back. Apparently, She made them using this app called PHHHOTO. I wanted to get one so bad, and I knew right then and there that once I do, I’d take a million moving photos myself, unfortunately, it was only available for ios users.

When my father handed me his old phone a week ago, I was a “bit” ecstatic as I have never downloaded anything on my old phone. I merely used it for texting and for uploading stuff on Instagram.

So, it has been a while now since I discovered PHHHOTO, so while looking through the Google Play Store, I suddenly thought of getting it on my new phone, forgetting it wasn’t available for Android users. Good thing I did though, because if it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t have known they’re currently making it available for Android users too! I was more than happy to sign up for their updates on this and now I can’t wait to get an email from them saying that FINALLY, YOU, YES YOU ANDROID USER!!! GET THIS BRILLIANT APP ON YOUR PHONE AS WELL!

For now, I downloaded a similar app called Gif Me! Camera, which I have to say, isn’t bad at all! It’s what I used to take and make these cute gif photos here, and mind you, they turned out pretty cute and as amusing as those that were created using its ios counterpart.

I can’t wait to create more especially now that Christmas is almost here!
